For with Trump, his former mentor, Roy Cohn, and current fixer, thuggish dealmaker Michael Cohen, makes ‘bad company’ a seamless thread.
Call it, ‘From Cohn to Cohen’…
…that Jewish thread laces Trump through Roy Cohn’s Mafia and Jewish Real Estate connections ever since his stab at cracking into the Manhattan market back in the 80’s.
Now he’s got a new ‘fix it’ man—in the mould of Roy Cohn, with an unsavory background of his own—who now is in a ‘fix’ himself.
[Clip: “Federal agents who raided the home and office of the President’s attorney were looking for information about money paid to two women who claimed they had an affair with Mr. Trump before he was president. Here’s Justice reporter Paula Reid.”
‘Mr Cohen, so you’re not worried at all?’ ‘I’m not worried.’
“CBS cameras captured President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, walking in Manhattan this afternoon following FBI raids on his homes and offices earlier this week. In addition to seizing documents related to two women who claimed they had affairs with the President, investigators also were looking for records related to the Access Hollywood tape in which Mr. Trump was heard making vulgar comments about women.” ‘Oh, Hi. Nice seeing you!’ ‘Hello, Mr. Trump, how are you?’”]
That’s Trump’s famous handshake, pulling the victim toward him.
But Nancy O’Dell, co-host of the show, didn’t green-light the grab. She leaned away from him.
I mean, she was a married woman at the time, Trump was married too, to Melania, and committing adultery is a not a moral thing to do.
Melania has a lot to complain about, and looks like Trump’s whining too.
[Clip: “As we get ready to go into the Cabinet Room where the President is meeting with his National Security team. “We just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys, good man, and uh, its a disgraceful situation, and its a total witch hunt. I’ve been saying for a long time. I’ve been trying to keep it down.”]
It’s gonna be a long time before this is over.
Like “Portnoy’s Complaint,” Philip Roth’s book about an overbearing Jewish mother who would barge into the bathroom to inspect her Jewish son’s bowel movements…Mama Mueller’s doing the same.
[Clip: “I think it’s a disgrace, what’s going on in this country, I think it’s a disgrace.” “The intended message to Mueller was clear: ‘Your investigation is contaminated.’ Mueller remains silent, instead, letting his work speak for itself self.”]
This time inspecting a naughty son’s bathroom sprees with porn stars and playboy pin ups.
[Clip: “We’ve learned it was the FBI’s Public Corruption Unit that raided President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. Sources tell CBS News the search warrants covered any evidence related to agreements Cohen made with adult film star, Stormy Daniels, and playboy model, Karen McDougal. They both claim they had affairs with Mister Trump more than a decade ago.”]
Bad company breeds bad morals.
You can’t believe a word Trump says anymore.
For when you can’t separate fake news from real news—like staged chemical attacks in Syria by CIA/Mossad/and MI6 goons—then one wonders just who Trump’s been hanging around with.
[Clip: “The new national security adviser had his fourth day on the job today, so far his four days on the job so far he has wiped out the upper echelons of the National Security Council and he has not replaced them.”]
The Jews Media reports that Rosenstein and Co told Trump today that he isn’t the target of the “raid” on Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen.
That translates from Jewspeak to straight talk as - Trump is definitely the target.
Trump’s advisors and their Zionist partners have great skill in manipulating people. The Zionists and their Jews Media are portraying Cohen as “the target of the raid.”
This gives the appearance that Cohen is on Trump’s side, that Cohen is a victim of Schiff, Rosenstein, & Mueller even moreso than Trump.
That makes it appear that Cohen is loyal to Trump so that Trump continues to confide in Cohen, and Trump stays in bed with his Zionist puppet masters.
+Keep your friends close and your enemies even closer” is an old adage that Zionists seem to understand well. By keeping Zionist advisors in Trump’s camp, the banksters see and hear everything Trump does or says.
Besides seeing, hearing, spying, Trump’s Zionist advisors steer Trump toward what serves Zionism, Israel, and Satan, but hurts America.
Trump may never know for sure nor fully understand that his Jewish advisors are not on his side, that their true loyalty is to Zionism and their father the devil.
Zionist advisors on Trump’s staff keep Trump blinded to the fact that they work against him instead of for him.
Until Trump figures that out and then fights mightily to drain the Zionist swamp, Trump is just another puppet like Clinton, Bush, or Obama.
You are so very keen and skilled at connecting each and every dot.
All one can say is the “Bolsheviks” running and undermining this deeply afflicted country 24/7 day in and day out, are so unrelenting, so diabolical, and so completely ruthless, it is beyond words and the imagination of mere mortals.
Thank you for keeping us well informed.
God bless your brilliant, creative commentary and tireless efforts.
Kiimm mentions the diabolical, unrelenting and ruthless Bolsheviks above in a previous comment.
“Today is the 129th anniversary of the birth of the man who thwarted the gigantic military offensive against Western Europe planned by Josef Stalin and the “Jewish-Bolshevik” Moscow leadership, with seven new armies raised in secret, which was scheduled to begin on July 15, 1941.” David Irving
He bought us time with the life blood of the German and other European Volk who fought off the Bolshevik Beast. Stalin only gained half of Europe instead of sweeping it in its entirety into the hellish Bolshevik archipelago.
The decay of moral and spiritual values, the breakup of family life, epidemic drug addiction, skyrocketing crime, social unrest, economic instability, racial disorder—all these serious national problems which we witness today are an outgrowth of our having participated in a war against Adolf Hitler.
Many people wonder why such things as rampant pornography/perversion, opiod addiction, transgenderism, forced migration, miscegenation and hatred of White Western Civilization are being foisted on them today.
Little do they realize that the forces behind this latest genocidal insanity are the very same forces which got us into the Second World War. For Adolf Hitler’s enemies are the very same ones we must now face—in our neighborhoods, in our schools, on our jobs, in our society and government.
Don’t try to tell this to the cuckolded, evangelical baby boomer crowd because they have all seen the Holohoax movies and “know” their history.
Strange as it many seem, these same satanic forces we now face and which Hitler’s Germany confronted are now aligned against Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
Although Putin could never say it, one would think that he has to realize that this is true.
Russia today is being agitated, lied about, surrounded and provoked just as Germany was. Surely Putin sees the similarity.
I couldn’t agree with you more, the Jewish Bolsheviks are more powerful today than they were in the months leading up to WWII. Why?
The Western nations, including the US, fought on the wrong side. The real war criminals weren’t the German officials, the real war criminals were the Bolsheviks.
Just ask any Pole who was around when the Soviet Red Armies invaded Poland from the East and rounded up some 20,000 Polish officers and intellectuals, and executed them in the Katyn Forest, outside Smolensk.
Even today, elderly Poles still lambast the former USSR for that atrocity.
More innocents were exterminated under Bolshevism than any other system in human history.
Both Juri Lina and Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote books on this very subject, and they’re both right.
I decided to take a look at your site and see how you were doing. I commend you on your dedication to stay the course in the face of all adversity.
Your professionalism has peaked and you STILL speak the TRUTH - no matter what. I admire that in a society where fence straddling is now the ACCEPTED cowardly norm.
Keep up the good work. Health issues and other of life’s obstacles have slowed me down - but it is my intention to write one more book. I understand it may be censured by Amazon’s Jew loyal drones - but I will at least try.
If you haven’t proven by now that you are a good and faithful servant to the will of the Lord - then nobody is.
I have had one ‘dream’ since I returned from IsraHELL and their poor victims in Palestine. That was to be able to build a school for deserving young Palestinians - and or perhaps a small clinic to tend the injured victims of Jewish war crimes.
I still remember the suffering and terror I witnessed at the hands of the terrorist IDF - 100% PURE SCUM! It saddens me deeply to see my OWN countrymen support such demonic conduct.
Sadly it appears that the biggest enemy of that goal of helping the defenseless and innocents of Gaza that I witnessed being either murdered or otherwise being terrorized - is MY OWN JEW-RUN COUNTRY.
I have adopted a code of personal conduct based on that of many of the ancient Christian Knights.
TO FEED THE HUNGRY- TO CLOTHE THE NAKED - TO MINISTER TO THE ILL - TO DEFEND THE DEFENSELESS - TO GIVE HOPE TO THE HOPELESS - AND TO ALWAYS SPEAK THE TRUTH.
That attitude has apparently isolated me from most all of my ‘ friends’ and even my own family. Nothing is more painful than for a father than to have your selfless efforts mocked by your own sons!
My compassion for the most vulnerable of God’s creations has evidently not been in lock step with the our passion for self-gratification — greed — shallowness — and hypocrisy that now is so emblematic of ‘Merkan’ lifestyles.
Please let me know how you are doing. We used to be a pretty good team.
That your mind could be hampered with a thought like that is ridiculous.
The great statesman senator William Fulbright, for whom an academic achievement award is named after, said all the way back in 1973 that Washington DC, meaning the federal government, is “Israeli occupied territory”
There is no right side in these wars that the Jews instigate.
The Zionist incited wars typically set one group of white Christian nations to war against another group as was done in WW1 and WW2.
Other times these wars pit Christians against Muslims like with the Crusades or other mid-east wars such as wars with Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Egypt, Libya, Syria.
Zionists manipulate Christians to murder each other in war, to weaken and destroy Christianity; about like how Zionists get Muslims and Christians to destroy each other.
“Thanks to the terrible power of our International Banks, we have forced the Christians into wars without number. Wars have a special value for Jews, since Christians massacre each other and make more room for us Jews.
Wars are the Jews’ Harvest: The Jew banks grow fat on Christian wars. Over 100 million Christians have been swept off the face of the earth by wars, and the end is not yet.”
by Jewish Rabbi Reichorn, speaking at the funeral of Grand Rabbi Simeon Ben-Iudah in 1869.
This statement was just after Lincoln’s war against the South, before the World Wars, and before the Bolsheviks’, including Joseph Stalin murder of some 80 million Russian Christians. The rabbi was right!
For Christians, there are no winners in these devilish wars. The closest thing to the right side is the side who stays out of war. The USA avoided war a lot better before Zionists took power.

RT: Emails have emerged revealing how the controversial Syrian activist group the White Helmets tried to lobby Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters with Saudi money. The revelations have been published on Max Blumenthal’s project.
In an email from October 2016, Roger Waters is invited to a fundraiser organized by Saudi billionaire Hani Farsi to honor the work of the White helmets. In it, he is also encouraged to watch a documentary about the group.
And it didn’t stop there - just days before his recent concert in Barcelona, Waters was contacted by a French journalist working for the White Helmets. The reporter asked Waters for a few moments on stage to deliver a message to the children of Syria.
Rogers did not respond to either email, according to journalist Max Blumenthal, who obtained the messages. Instead of giving the stage to the White Helmets during his Barcelona concert, Waters denounced the organization.
“The White Helmets is a fake organization that exists only to create propaganda for jihadists and terrorists. That’s my belief. We have opposing beliefs,” he said.
“If we were to listen to the propaganda of the White Helmets and others, we would be encouraged to encourage our governments to start dropping bombs on people in Syria. This would be a mistake of monumental proportions for us as human beings,” he added.
“What we should do is go and persuade our governments not to go and drop bombs on people. And certainly not until we have done all the research that is necessary so that we would have a clear idea of what is really going on,” [Waters] added.
“Because we live in the world where propaganda seems to be more important than the reality of what is really going on.”

Syriana Analysis: The MSM launched full-scale attack on independent journalists
Several Mainstream media outlets launched a full-scale attack on independent journalists, such as Vanessa Beeley, Syrian Girl Partisan, Sarah Abdallah and Ian56, accusing them of being “conspiracy theorists” and “Russian bots”.
Mehdi Hassan and Al Jazeera are on my naughty list, now.
Hassan has just revealed himself to be a Western stooge with his ridiculous article on the Intercept demonizing President al Assad as a “war criminal” and attacking Syrians and Western journalists inside Syria as “conspiracy theorists” and “Assad apologists”.
And Hassan just revealed Al Jazeera being far less independent of the Qatari government/ruling family than it claims it is; and with the screed he just wrote for the Intercept, has cast a huge cloud over The Intercept as not being so “independent” and “objective” as an investigative journal as claimed to be, either.
So, Hassan, why didn’t you, or anyone from the Intercept, make the trip to Syria and do a little investigative journalism yourself about the Dhouma chemical weapons attack fable hoax. How is it that other Americans and groups, at various times, including Virginia State Senator Richard Black, are able to go to Syria on fact-finding missions, to find out for themselves what are the true situations, but somehow The Intercept can’t?
Two Western reporters, Robert Fisk, certainly no friend of President Assad, and a reporter, Pearson Sharp from a little known pro-Trump cable news channel, One America News Network, had no problem getting through to Douma after the allegations started coming out.
They immediately began reporting that there was absolutely no evidence of a government chemical weapons attack used as a lying pretext to justify the USUK-FR missile attack on Syria’s military Air Force and Air Defense network and military bases, intended to break the back of the SAA, and which spectacularly failed.
These two completely independent reporters freely interviewed medical staff, residents, emergency room patients, and even some families and children who participated in the ER hoax filming for food, began reporting that there was absolutely no evidence of a chemical weapons attack
The Intercept was originally co-founded along with Greenwall and Scahill by Paris-born Iranian of ex-pat parents, the Western-Silicon Valleyite liberal Pierre Morad Omidyar.
Omidyar is an American billionaire entrepreneur and philanthropist; the founder of the eBay auction site where he served as chairman from 1998 to 2015 He became a billionaire at the age of 31 with eBay’s 1998 initial public offering (IPO).
Omidyar and his wife Pamela are well-known philanthropists who founded Omidyar Network in 2004 in order to expand their efforts beyond non-profits to include for-profits and public policy.
Since 2010, Omidyar has been involved in online journalism as the head of investigative reporting and public affairs news service Honolulu Civil Beat.
In 2013, he announced that he would create and finance First Look Media, a journalism venture to include Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, and Jeremy Scahill. The publication initially served as a platform to report on the documents released by Edward Snowden, with the long-term goal of producing journalism across a wide range of issues.
Omidyar Network is a philanthropic investment firm dedicated to harnessing the power of markets to create opportunity for people to improve their lives. It was established in 2004 by Omidyar and his wife, Pam. The organization invests in and helps scale innovative organizations to catalyze economic, social, and political change.
Mehdi Hassan, secularist British-born journalist from Shia Muslim and British Indian background, I see what you’re doing, and I think you, BBC, Channel 4, Sky and MI6 have crossed paths at many points, much like our own CIA is thoroughly embedded in MSM, and has been since 1947.
Educated at Merchant Taylors’ School, a day independent school for boys at Sandy Lodge in the Three Rivers District of Hertfordshire, near the town of Northwood in North West London followed by Christ Church at the University of Oxford, where he read Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE), and graduated in 2000.
Hasan worked as a researcher and then producer on LWT’s Jonathan Dimbleby programme, with a brief period in between on BBC1’s The Politics Show. Following this, he became deputy executive producer on Sky’s breakfast show Sunrise before moving to Channel 4 as their editor of news and current affairs.
He was appointed senior editor (politics) at the New Statesman in late spring of 2009, where he stayed until May 2012, then becoming political director of The Huffington Post website.
Hasan became a presenter on Al Jazeera’s English news channel in May 2012. Hasan has appeared (six times) on the BBC’s Question Time programme, and the Sunday morning programmes The Big Questions and Sunday Morning Live.
You once stated that the media should be sanctioned for “dishonest, demonising press coverage” of Muslims and other minorities, stating: “I’m all in favour of free speech and the robust criticism of all religious beliefs. But it’s the made-up stories and the smearing of individuals and whole communities that I have an issue with. Why isn’t anti-Muslim bigotry as unacceptable in the press as anti-Jewish bigotry?”
But it’s quite all right for you, a “liberal, moderate Muslim,” to spew every single propaganda-war Western talking point in your screed against Syria and President Assad at the behest of your Qatari state-owned Al Jazeera paymasters, owned by the ruling Al Thani dynasty and Muslim Brotherhood supporters, in concert with the Westernized anti-Tehran tech-billionaire owner of the Intercept, Omidyar, who is apparently committed to organizing “economic, social, and political change” in Syria’s ally, Iran.
Hassan, on his own mini-bio on the Intercept, “has been included in the annual list of the 500 most influential Muslims in the world and named as one of the 100 most influential Britons on Twitter.”
Piss off, Hassan. It’s clear that you’ve never set foot inside of Syria and your journalistic integrity just hit the gutter. And your efforts to demonize anyone who attempts to get the truth in Syria as an “Assad apologist” is just plain stupid.
The Intercept: Dear Bashar al-Assad Apologists: Your Hero Is a War Criminal Even If He Didn’t Gas Syrians
Sorry to interrupt: I know you’re very busy right now trying to convince yourselves, and the rest of us, that your hero couldn’t possibly have used chemical weapons to kill up to 70 people in rebel-held Douma on April 7. Maybe Robert Fisk’s mysterious doctor has it right — and maybe the hundreds of survivors and eyewitnesses to the attack are all “crisis actors.”
Maybe Assad didn’t use sarin to kill around 100 people in rebel-held Khan Sheikhoun a year ago either. A joint investigation by the United Nations and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons found “unmistakable evidence” that he did. Human Rights Watch and Hans Blix also agree that Assad was probably to blame. But maybe they’re all wrong. Or, maybe they’re paid shills for the CIA.
My point is this: Who cares? Seriously, who cares? Whether or not it was Assad who used chemical weapons in Syria earlier this month, or last year, might matter to the leaders of the U.S., the U.K., and France, who decided to launch brazenly illegal and rather pointless airstrikes against his regime, but it doesn’t change the fact that the Syrian president-for-life is a monster who has perpetrated a vast array of blatant human rights abuses, crimes against humanity, and war crimes.
Finally! The Western-pressured UN bureaucratic and security delays certainly weren’t caused by Damascus!
OPCW Fact-Finding Mission Team Visits Douma, Syria
Saturday, 21 April 2018
THE HAGUE, Netherlands — 21 April 2018 —The Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) team of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) visited one of the sites in Douma, Syrian Arab Republic today to collect samples for analysis in connection with allegations of chemical weapons use on 7 April 2018.
The OPCW will evaluate the situation and consider future steps including another possible visit to Douma.
The samples collected will be transported to the OPCW Laboratory in Rijswijk and then dispatched for analysis to the OPCW’s designated labs.
Based on the analysis of the sample results as well other information and materials collected by the team, the FFM will compile their report for submission to the States Parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention for their consideration.
Set up in 2014, the on-going mandate of the OPCW Fact Finding Mission (FFM) is “to establish facts surrounding allegations of the use of toxic chemicals, reportedly chlorine, for hostile purposes in the Syrian Arab Republic”.
As the implementing body for the Chemical Weapons Convention, the OPCW oversees the global endeavour to permanently and verifiably eliminate chemical weapons.
Since the Convention’s entry into force in 1997 – and with its 192 States Parties – it is the most successful disarmament treaty eliminating an entire class of weapons of mass destruction.
Over 96% of all chemical weapon stockpiles declared by possessor States have been destroyed under OPCW verification. For its extensive efforts in eliminating chemical weapons, the OPCW received the 2013 Nobel Prize for Peace.

I generally appreciated Al Jazeera despite it’s known state-owned biases, such as the Qatari support of the Muslim Brotherhood, particularly in its early days of coverage during the US war on Iraq, as well as Mehdi Hassan who put together some good interviews.
The Intercept, too, I took with a grain of salt especially for its domestic liberal posture, but usually has better than average overseas reporting, especially their coverage of the US-Saudi war on the Yemenis, and the extra mile they took investigating the death of Nora Anwaliki and other villagers in the botched Seal Team 6 raid in January 2017.
Hasan did a good series titled ‘Blowback’ in the Intercept earlier in the year describing the historical conditions and pressures from the Iraq war and brutal US occupation of the ‘Provisional Government’ that eventually gave rise to Al Qaeda in Iraq/ISIS.
But this latest screed by Hassan takes the cake.
His putrid hatred of President Assad, the Syrian people, as well as for anyone who is far more concerned with getting to the truth of things by dismissively calling them “Assad apologists” is the same kind of black propaganda as the UK is doing with Russia.
Hasan really showed his colors with this one.
Here in America there’s just not that much exposure to him in the media, but in looking up his background, he has ambitious fool - MI6 tool written across his forehead.

American Conservative: Senators Offer Up Unprecedented War Powers to President
New AUMF would cement forever war and give the phrase ‘world police’ new meaning.
WASHINGTON — A bipartisan bill introduced in the Senate Monday would give the president sweeping authority to wage endless war anywhere in the world with limited congressional intervention.
Perversely billed as a plan to “reassert” Congressional power to “authorize where, when and with who we are at war,” the proposal for a new AUMF (Authorization for Use of Military Force) falls way short of that promise.
In fact, it achieves quite the opposite. The bill, if passed, would not only codify all of the authority the president has now to fight Al Qaeda and Taliban and “associated forces” as interpreted in the current 2001 AUMF, but allow the president to add as many targets as desired in the future.
Congress can only reverse these add-ons with a veto-proof supermajority, and the White House is not mandated to fully disclose any new “associated forces” publicly or even to the full Congress. Nor is there a sunset provision requiring Congressional reauthorization, only a mere “review” every four years.
War critics on both the Left and Right were up in arms Tuesday over the details of the bill, which was introduced by Republican Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.).
Unlike the 2001 AUMF, it names the Islamic State with the Taliban and Al Qaeda and five designated “associated forces” (Al Qaeda in Syria, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), Al Shabaab, and the Haqqani Network), which would essentially allow the U.S. military to engage in hostilities in Yemen, several countries in East and North Africa, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and anywhere else these and any new groups may pop up in the future.
In short, it’s a rubber stamp for the global war on terror.
“Beyond being all but a full abdication of war powers vested to Congress in the Constitution, an AUMF that encourages perpetual, indefinite war is fundamentally at odds with fiscal conservatism and wise use of taxpayer dollars, as well as with wise use of our armed forces and its men and women who deserve robust debate over when and where they are asked to put their lives on the line for their country,” exclaimed Sarah Anderson, policy analyst for FreedomWorks, one of the conservative groups in Washington lining up against the bill, in an email to TAC.
There have been many efforts over the years, particularly by Corker and Kaine, to update the legal framework for current military actions overseas—whether that be bombing, hunting or detaining terrorists abroad—so that the administration would not have to keep stretching the 2001 (signed after 9/11) and/or the 2002 AUMF (signed ahead of the Iraq invasion) to cover new targets.
There’s a sense that Presidents Bush, Obama and now Trump have been using the old AUMFs to engage in unilateral war without Congressional debate or blessing, and many lawmakers want to weigh in.
Heralding his bill on Twitter, Sen. Kaine said it would take away Trump’s “blank check” for those White House wars and open them up to debate in the Congress.
Sadly this proposal essentially gives him the entire bank, with Congressional approval.
“It’s a well-intentioned effort that is unfortunately going to achieve the opposite,” said Rita Siemion, international legal counsel for Human Rights First.
Blame the competing interests on the Hill: everyone knows the hawks would rather keep the status quo and won’t go for a bill that appears to tie the president’s hands.
Any legislation with sunsets or transparency or even a stronger Congressional hand would be dead on arrival under the current Republican leadership.
“They (lawmakers) think they will have weighed in, and there’s this idea that it’s better than not weighing in at all, but I just don’t share it,” she told TAC Tuesday.
“It’s going to be handing over significant powers to President Trump and any future president with no limits on which groups the nation goes to war with.”
At a time when Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) have been arguing that the Congress should have a vote on whether the U.S. continues to assist in the Saudi war on the Houthi in Yemen under the War Powers Act, this bill would in essence abdicate those powers.
Here, the president gets to make war on anyone he wants with Congress only voting after the fact. And without a veto-proof two-thirds majority, Congress cannot overrule him.
“When the founders wrote the Constitution they understood that military conflict was a big deal,” charged Kurt Couchman, vice president for public policy at the conservative Defense Priorities, in an interview with TAC.
“They saw sovereigns go bankrupt over a series of wars started by kings, and they did not want our president to be king.
“You need the people to be on board through their representatives. (This proposal) ensures wars will continue on auto-pilot only subject to the president’s discretion.”
If that doesn’t sound monarchical enough, consider this: under the current rules any new interpretations of the AUMFs—including new “associated forces”—can remain classified.
While the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) finally incorporated some reporting procedures requiring that changes like new targets must be shared with key congressional committees and leaders, most of the important stuff has been redacted from the public record, said Siemion, and will continue to be classified under the new measure.
In a primer on the Corker-Kaine bill Tuesday, Robert Chesney at the Lawfare blog said the lack of transparency has been status quo for some time:
“…as things currently stand there is no requirement for the public to be told when new groups are so designated.
“To be sure, the public sometimes is told, but nothing in current law requires this, and the track record involves much less clarity than one might like. For a considerable time, even Congress apparently had trouble acquiring this information, though that seems to have changed recently.
So what will change under Corker-Kaine? Absolutely nothing, said Siemion. The president can initiate drone strikes against targets operating under new flags (there is some effort to define “associated forces” in the bill, but there is a lot of wiggle room), and only has to inform certain members of Congress.
Furthermore that information will likely never see the light of day.
“At a minimum, the public, the American people, should know who we are going to war with,” said Siemion.
Mark-ups could begin as early as next week—without a hearing. Sources say that members are already lining up to load the bill with amendments that would put restrictions on the president’s power, including a sunset clause, and that might spell its doom. Or it could be pushed to a vote as is.
Tensions are already running high after the president initiated strikes against Syria last week without Congressional approval.
“My fear is that this new authority will not constrain the president but expand presidential power,” Sen. Rand Paul told Fox News Tuesday morning, signaling his own opposition to the Corker-Kaine proposal.
Couchman said a rush to pass–or not pass–the proposal may gloss over serious debates the Congress should be having on war policy, including how effective the U.S. military strategy is for the safety and health of the nation.
“A broader debate needs to happen. It’s not necessarily about legal authority, because legal authority is not sufficient for these questions.
“We also need to get back to core issues—issues of national interest, diplomacy, the use of force, and other foreign policy tools—and how best to keep Americans safe, free, and prosperous.”

It looks like Israel’s Mossad played with 2016 election rigging and left clues about it pointing to Russia, as another way to divide the USA and Russia against each other.
The FBI, Comey, McCabe, are under scrutiny for the handling of the matter. Foxjews is describing Comey as the bad goy in the FBI. The rest of the Jews media portrays Comey as a hero.
The Zionists and their mass media are keeping the Jewspapers and cameras focused on Comey and McCabe to keep the spotlight off the real evil which is the deep state Jews in the FBI; and other influential agencies.
Comey and McCabe are the fall goys in the phony Russian Collusion scam. They are blamed so that they suffer instead of deep state Jews who actually did dirty deeds.
Nowadays, a goy who heads up a powerful government agency is about like the target in the Candid Camera prank where the target is hired to lead an aerobics class. The aerobics class follows the lead of the secretly designated leader instead of the targeted leader being pranked.

Most people don’t think like them can’t think like them and thus fail to understand how this is possible, but it is.
This is my complaint -
Everyone complains about the treatment of Palestinians by the Israeli government but rarely does anyone mention that this is also USA policy.
If it wasn’t they would not be allowed to get away with it.
Muraselon: Russia ‘No Longer Has Any Moral Obligations’ To Deny Syria’s Military S-300 Air Defense System – Lavrov
In a recent interview with RIA Novosti, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated among several topics that Russia is no longer bound by moral duty to deny allied Syrian forces access to its game-changing S-300 strategic air defense system.
The Russian FM stated that, until now, Syria’s military had been denied access to the weapon because certain other nations thought that this would disturb the sensitive balance of diplomatic-military relations in the Middle East. He explained:
‘We [Russia] promised not to do it around a decade ago at the request of our partners, and we took into consideration their argument that this would destabilize the situation, despite this [S-300] being a purely defensive system. We heeded their call.’
However, in light of recent events (namely the US-led missile strike on Syria), ‘now we [Russia] have no such moral obligation,’ Lavrov said concluding the matter, somewhat signalling that the Syrian military may soon receive S-300 systems.
Jewish knickers are really, really bunched up in Tel Aviv over losing their “air superiority”. The little piglets are squealing bitterly about losing their freedom to launch attacks at will on another country with impunity.
The S-300 system would extend Syria’s defense shield to include reaching across Lebanese air space from where the Jewish air force launches most of its air strikes.
They are most aggrieved that Syria or Lebanon might actually take their own sovereign air space seriously.
Sputnik News (4/15/2018) Israeli Media Alarmed Over Russia’s S-300 Supply to Syria
The statement, made by the Russian Defense Ministry, that Moscow might reconsider a sale of the S-300 systems to Damascus following the US and allied airstrike, has raised concern among Israeli analysts and journalists, who are concerned over possible threats it may pose to the Jewish state.
The Jerusalem Post has warned that “Israel’s air superiority is at risk of being challenged in one of the most difficult” areas if Russia decides to sell Syria more advanced air defense systems. The newspaper has voiced fears that the Israeli pilots might get killed if Damascus had its hands on more effective missiles. The unit in question is the S-300, a Russian long range surface-to-air missile system, developed to defend against aircraft and cruise missiles. The system is one the most advanced weapons in its class.
Analyst from I24 news broadcaster Ron Ben-Yishai backs these concerns, saying that the Jewish state would have to take “cautionary and preventive measures not yet taken so far.”
Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff Col. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy said that Russia might consider selling the S-300 systems to Damascus shortly after US-led strikes on April 14.
Moscow had already decided against selling them to Damascus, Syria some time ago due to “the pressing request of some of our Western partners.” But as the General stated, taking the latest events into the account, Russia can consider the question not only for Syria, but for other states.
According to the media, the more up-to-date S-300 systems could be a needed upgrade for Syrian air defense, which now consists of Soviet-era weapons. According to the JP, the most advanced Russian system Damascus possesses is a short range set Pantsir S-1, able to shoot down drones and missiles in Syrian airspace.
Israeli Attacks on Syria
Since 2013, Israel has confirmed hitting about 100 targets in Syria, while many more strikes have also been reported to have been launched by the Jewish state forces, who later denied it.
Some targets were in the Syrian-Israeli border area in the Golan Heights. Two-thirds of the region, internationally recognized as Syrian territory, was annexed by Israel in the 80s and remains disputed. The eastern Golan Heights, which are in Syrian hands, has become the target of the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front, as well as Daesh* militants and other Syrian opposition forces.
However, Israel has targeted locations and alleged Hezbollah weapons convoys in the capital province and other regions. In 2017 Israel bombed a military airport near Damacus.
A Syrian official then told Sputnik that it was done “to encourage and support terrorists”.
On February 10, 2018, in retaliation for an alleged Iranian drone incursion over Israeli territory, the IDF launched an airstrike against its positions on Syria’s territory, costing them one of their jets. The loss of an aircraft over Syrian territory prompted another attack against the country, claiming lives of between 6 and 10 soldiers, according to various sources, and damaging 12 sites. https://sputniknews.com/military/201804151063585077-israel-syria-russian-defense-s300/
As if shooting unarmed kids in the head with live ammunition, killing amputees in their wheelchairs, murdering journalists for sport, for decades, the “most moral army in the world” routinely mows down and cripples the most dangerous foe of all —
—the Red Crescent paramedics and Palestinian medical staff and health workers.
Palestine News Network: MASS CASUALTIES PUTTING HEALTH WORKERS IN GAZA UNDER EVEN GREATER STRAIN
Amid further mass casualties on the third consecutive Friday of the “Great Return March” protests, health workers were put under yet further considerable strain and a number of them were injured.
Today, a Palestine Red Crescent Society medic in Rafah was shot in the knee with live ammunition, and a further 10 paramedics had to evacuate their medical point near Khan Younis after inhaling tear gas.
Even before Israel’s violent response the protests, health workers in Gaza were under huge strain due to the cumulative effects of a decade of blockade, which has degraded health and other essential services as well as the economy and living conditions, in addition to previous mass casualty events.
Burnout and emotional exhaustion was already a significant feature among Palestine’s medical workforce.
Now, they are once again experiencing the most difficult conditions, working long hours in tense situations and assisting casualties with often horrifying and life-changing injuries.
Last Friday, the World Health Organisation reported that five ambulances were damaged in attacks, three paramedics were injured by direct fire to the lower limbs, one by a tear gas cartridge to the head and that 29 healthcare staff suffered from tear gas inhalation.
Attacks on Palestinian health workers, facilities and ambulances by Israeli forces have been a painfully regular and repeated feature of the past decade, as MAP has emphasised in its publications and advocacy.
“Regretfully, no one has been held to account for any of the multiple attacks on protected medical personnel and facilities, and this impunity makes recurrence much more likely,” added Aimee Shalan.
“The prolonged and often traumatic stressors endured by health workers in Gaza are almost inconceivable for people not trapped there.
“On an almost daily level, they see and suffer what many of us won’t in a lifetime,” said Aimee Shalan, CEO of Medical Aid for Palestinians.
Today, at least 969 injuries have been reported by the Ministry of Health. More than 1,200 were reported to have been shot in the last fortnight. At least 26 protesters are reported to have been killed.
A medic treating severely injured protesters in a hospital in Gaza told MAP that the types and numbers of injuries “would overwhelm any European hospital and be classified as a “major incident,” let alone a local hospital in Gaza with a shortage of disposables and man power for this kind of injury. This is happening every Friday.”
With the sheer number of casualties threatening to overwhelm available services, communities in Gaza are stepping up to support them.
In Khan Younis in the south of Gaza, for example, MAP has learned of groups of students of healthcare subjects banding together to form “rescue teams” to offer treatment and support the work of professional responders.
Those inside hospitals and clinics are working long hours to keep essential services running alongside caring for thousands of new patients.
The physical health of unarmed protesters is clearly under threat in Gaza, but so too is the mental well-being of those who are once again bravely striving to save lives and limbs.
As we celebrate the steadfastness and resolve of Gaza’s medics, we are also outraged that their safety is once again endangered as they carry out their vital humanitarian functions.
Official statistic: Israel killed 33, wounded 4,279 Gazans since 30 March
Israeli occupation forces have killed 33 peaceful Palestinian protesters in the Gaza Strip and wounded 4,279 others in the three weeks since the start of the “Great March of Return” demonstrations on 30 March, the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza said yesterday.
In a statement, the ministry said three out of the 33 protesters killed were children. It also said that 642 of the wounded are children and 243 are women.
According to the statement, 1,539 of the wounded were targeted with live ammunition, 388 with rubber-coated steel bullets.
The statement also said that 134 of the wounded arrived in hospitals in critical conditions, 1,183 with moderate injuries and 2,962 with light wounds.
It stated that 196 of the unarmed protesters were shot in the neck and head, 384 in the upper parts of their bodies, 96 in the back and chest, 116 in their upper abdominal area, 1,496 in the lower parts of their bodies and 113 in other locations.
The ministry accused the Israeli occupation of deliberately targeting journalists and medics as one journalist was killed, 66 journalists and 44 medics were wounded and 19 ambulances were targeted.
Meanwhile, the ministry of education said 84 students were among the wounded, including seven who are in critical conditions, 57 suffering moderate wounds and 20 suffered light injuries.
It is worth mentioning that this number did not include an elderly farmer and two youths who were killed by the Israeli forces prior to the official launch of the demonstrations after the Friday prayer on 30 March.
Several Palestinian and international bodies and rights groups, including the UN, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the Israeli rights group B’Tselem reiterated that the Israeli occupation forces have been using lethal force to deter unarmed and peaceful protesters.
On 30 March, thousands of Palestinians in Gaza started peaceful protests near the eastern borders of the coastal enclave, which separates Gaza from Israel, to mark the 42nd anniversary of Palestinian Land Day.
Today is the 8th anniversary of Curt Maynard’s death. After an ugly divorce he went mad and murdered his ex-wife, shot her daughter, then killed himself as the police were closing in.
Curt was a very intelligent man: he had two masters degrees, was a registered nurse and finally, a licensed electrician. He was also on to the Jew game in a big way. For some reason he went full monty with his name and theories. Word got out. He was unapologetic and soon found it hard to keep a job due to his online notoriety.
He was an interesting and perceptive thinker and writer; but one whose demons finally got the better of him. However, not long before his meltdown he wrote something to the effect that his house was in the middle of a forest of cell towers. Microwaves? Who knows? But who’d doubt it?
Most of what he wrote has disappeared into cyberspace. This is a sad loss. Even his masterpiece, “It’s the Jews, Stupid!” is getting hard to find online now.

I just saw a program on Rv. which showed how easy it was to fort the system in America for millions and even billions and get away with it. And no doubt Jews do, thanks to their dual system representatives. It’s a thieves’ paradise.
Right after, I saw a program the fat guy with glasses (Michael Moore who did the Bowling for Columbine movie) which showed the appalling conditions of USA workers compared to other countries — in this case Italy.
He struggled on air to believe that workers are actually treated as humans, not commodities, in factory after factory he went to, including the Ducati motorbike factory.
Institute for Research - Middle Eastern Policy: Israel Lobby Archive:
The Institute for Curriculum Services (ICS) formally requests changes to Virginia textbooks and teacher guides in coordination with Jewish Community Relations Councils (JCRCs)
The Institute for Curriculum Services is a California-based non-profit organization that works “behind the scenes” to change curriculum and textbook references about “Jews, Judaism and Israel.”
In a January 31, 2018 webcast (YouTube Video) sponsored by the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, an umbrella organization, ICS head Aliza Craimer Elias made the following claims:
1. That ICS has successfully made 11,500 changes to textbooks across America.
2. When state education departments initiate textbook reviews, ICS works with Jewish Community Relations Councils (usually unincorporated units inside major Jewish federations) to contact textbook review committees to review and submit change requests.
3. Lead JCRCs submit these requested ICS changes.
4.Common requests include changing references to Israel’s “wall,” partially built across the Green Line, to “the security barrier” or simply the “fence.”
5. Insistence on Arab agency in depictions of violence. For example that textbooks not say “War broke out between Israel and Arabs in 1948,” but rather “Israel was formed, and Arab states attacked it.”
6. Craimer Elias of ICS claimed to have overcome input from a Muslim-oriented group in the Pacific Northwest that similarly tried to influence textbook content.
7. The next initiative ICS claimed to be working on was the State of Virginia textbook review.
JCPA President and CEO David Bernstein congratulated ICS saying he knew it received “a great deal of [presumably financial] support.”
Bernstein considers the “other side” of the “political spectrum” on this issue to be “the BDSers” (those calling for the Boycott Divestment and Sanction of Israel ) and “anti-Israel” groups.
On February 1, 2018 IRmep submitted a Virginia Freedom of Information Act, §2.2-3704 request with the Virginia Department of Education for “all copies of input submitted from or on behalf of the Institute for Curriculum Services, Jewish Council for Public Affairs and or Jewish Community Relations Councils or Federations during the Textbook Review & Approval process for History and Social Science textbooks”.
Below are links to original PDF cover letters and responsive documents released by the State of Virginia on April 4, 2018.
Below the PDFs are the Israel Lobby Archive’s selection of ICS quotes and comments on interesting and misleading proposed ICS changes to textbooks.
Common themes in ICS requests to make changes to Virginia textbooks.
Qualify claims of Islam as “expressing Muslim religious belief” while referencing those of Judaism as “God’s covenant.”
Replace Christian versions of key texts (such as the Ten Commandments) with Judaic versions.
Emphasize the “Jewish ethnicity” of major American historical figures.
Eliminate terms such as “settlers,” “occupation,” “land theft” and “wall” or replace with more neutral terms such as “disputed,” “captured areas,” “security fence” and “controlled.”
Emphasize Arab culpability for crisis initiation (Israel’s 1948 War of Independence) leading to military action, but not Israeli culpability (e.g. surprise Israeli airstrikes on Egypt commencing the 1967 Six-Day War).
Discourage students from conducting open internet research on current events lest they run into controversial content.
Instead recommend approved websites such as the ADL and the JewishVirtualLibrary.org
Eliminate or replace historical artwork created for predominately Christian audiences.
Add content that augments Israeli claims to occupied territory in the Middle East, such as changing maps of the Golan Heights as belonging to Israel rather than Syria.
Reference Israeli claims such as “Israel annexed East Jerusalem” as settled fact, without referencing lack of official recognition by other nation states.
Delete all references to “Palestinian Territories.”
Where ICS has already successfully lobbied for changes in national editions of textbooks, it demands that these changes also be made to State of Virginia editions.
Publishers of the textbooks targeted for changes include National Geographic, Prentice Hall, Five Ponds Press, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and McGraw-Hill.
The fact slipped my mind that the Silicon Valley billionaire’s Omidyar Network, owner of The Intercept that Mehdi Hassan writes for, is also the major backer for the ADL’s “Silicon Valley Center to Monitor & Fight Cyberhate” — that is, Blacklisting, Inc. which is censoring anything on YouTube and elsewhere that’s the least bit critical of Israel and the Jews.
“Austin, Tex., March 12, 2017 … At SXSW, Anti-Defamation League (ADL) CEO Jonathan A. Greenblatt announced Sunday that ADL has secured seed funding from Omidyar Network to build a state-of-the-art command center in Silicon Valley to combat the growing threat posed by hate online.
If Americans Knew: Understanding the Gaza Uprising: Gaza’s Hopeless Generation Expresses Their Despair
Palestinian journalist Yousef Alhelou’s vivid description of the situation at the Gaza-Israel border brings us up close, where we can see the images and understand the motivations on both sides.
By Yousef Alhelou
When the thousands of mainly young Palestinian protesters decided to flock to the Gaza border areas as part of the Great March of Return, it was supposed to be peaceful.
Those who believe in non-violent struggle hailed the absence of armed Palestinian men at the protests. Scores of Palestinian women were seen in the frontline.
Giant poster placards of peace legends like Gandhi, King and Mandela were erected near the border area to assert the peacefulness of the protest.
Heavily armed Israeli occupation forces versus Palestinian civilian protestors. Stone throwers were met with live ammunition and sniper shots.
A brutal crushing force was used to scare everyone present during the protests, be they civilians or journalists or paramedics.
With the killing of about 39 unarmed protestors, including at least 4 children and a journalist during 4 weeks of protests, Israeli forces have turned the protests bloody.
Over 4,900 injuries were reported during the same period, including at least 134 in critical condition; some have lost limbs due to the severity of their wounds.
Some cases were denied Israeli permission to leave Gaza and be transferred to hospitals in Israel or the West Bank.
Such measures are aimed at punishing those injured for taking part in the protests and weakening the morale of others as Palestinians are gearing up for the commemoration of Nakba Day on May 15th. [This day commemorates the Israeli expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians.]
Reports of Palestinian casualties have become the norm, with zero injuries on the Israeli side.
Logically it was suicidal for unarmed Palestinian protestors to approach the fence knowing in advance that being killed could be their fate, as hundreds of heavily Israeli soldiers and snipers were deployed all along the border fence.
Sounds crazy! The images of protestors maimed or injured by gunshots were shocking; the resulting shattered bodies are just beyond belief. The protestors were unarmed, the parties asymmetrical.
Scenes of destruction, killings, attacking fishermen and farmers, as well as arrest campaigns during previous Israeli invasions are engraved in their minds.
As the crowds started to arrive amid the presence of ambulances and journalists, adrenaline started rushing.
Some boys attempted to reach the fence, keeping eye contact with the Israeli soldiers in a state of defiance, heroism emanating from patriotism.
Palestinians remain undeterred. “Duty is calling” is what they would tell you. Peaceful protesters share their photos on social media and, in some cases, bid their loved ones goodbye, knowing they might not come back alive.
No one is immune. In some cases wounded paramedics were carried by their colleagues.
Journalists are taking extra precautions as they know that they might not be spared by Israeli fire during the course of their work.
It is time for a solution
A grim reality prevails amongst the tiny enclave’s inhabitants of nearly 2 million, half of whom are young people under the age of 18.
Life is unbearable and it is amazing how people are surviving on a day-to-day basis.
Many families now cannot put bread on the table, and a large percentage of the population relies on aid assistance from international agencies such as UNRWA. Many cases of suicide were reported in Gaza in recent years.
Those who can afford to leave Gaza are migrating to European countries, looking for a better future. Two thirds of the population are descendants of refugees.
Many of those who took part in the protest stated to local media, “there is no life in Gaza”.
Now that Gaza (known as the world’s largest open air prison) has got the world’s attention and is making headlines worldwide, it waits for any intervention to help create hope and find a political solution.
But unless Israel is willing to work toward peace, or unless the international community intervenes, the people of Gaza will continue to suffer.
What you are reading here that the “moralists” are doing in Palestine (obviously censored in the U.S. by the same perpetrators) are the same tactics used by the Jew-run Cheka and NKVD in the “carnival of mass murder” known as the USSR.
What is most shocking, some thing I had never considered is the revelation by +BN & your good self of the Secret Intelligence Service’s participation in not only actively subverting both Russia & Syria, but tolerating (and likely supportive) of the worst nation wreckers imaginable.
It suggests to me, there is a vast Wahhabi Judaic alliance influencing western “democracies” through out their structure.
Come back George Smiley, your skills, your conscience, your loyalty are sorely missed.
Electronic Intifada: Ali Abuminah : Snipers ordered to shoot children, Israeli general confirms
An Israeli general has confirmed that when snipers stationed along Israel’s boundary with Gaza shoot at children, they are doing so deliberately, under clear and specific orders.
In a radio interview, Brigadier-General (Reserve) Zvika Fogel describes how a sniper identifies the “small body” of a child and is given authorization to shoot.
Fogel’s statements could be used as evidence of intent if Israeli leaders are ever tried for war crimes at the International Criminal Court.
On Friday, an Israeli sniper shot dead 14-year-old Muhammad Ibrahim Ayyoub.
The boy, shot in the head east of Jabaliya, was the fourth child among the more than 30 Palestinians killed during the Great March of Return rallies that began in Gaza on 30 March.
More than 1,600 other Palestinians have been shot with live ammunition that has caused what doctors are calling “horrific injuries” likely to leave many of them with permanent disabilities.
As eyewitnesses and video confirmed, the child Muhammad Ayyoub posed no conceivable danger to heavily armed Israeli occupation forces stationed dozens of meters away behind fences and earthen fortifications on the other side of the Gaza boundary when he was killed.
Even the usually timid United Nations peace process envoy Nickolay Mladenov publicly declared that the slaying was “outrageous.”
On Saturday, Brigadier-General Fogel was interviewed by Ron Nesiel on the Israeli public radio network Kan.
Fogel is the former chief of staff of the Israeli army’s “southern command,” which includes the occupied Gaza Strip.
Ahmad Tibi, a Palestinian lawmaker in Israel’s parliament, drew attention to the interview in a tweet.
A recording of the interview is online (it begins at 6:52). The interview was translated for The Electronic Intifada by Dena Shunra and a full transcript follows this article.
The host Ron Nesiel asks Fogel if the Israeli army should “rethink its use of snipers,” and suggests that someone giving orders “lowered the bar for using live fire.”
Fogel adamantly defends the policy, stating: “At the tactical level, any person who gets close to the fence, anyone who could be a future threat to the border of the State of Israel and its residents, should bear a price for that violation.”
He adds: “If this child or anyone else gets close to the fence in order to hide an explosive device or check if there are any dead zones there or to cut the fence so someone could infiltrate the territory of the State of Israel to kill us …”
“Then his punishment is death?” Nesiel interjects.
“His punishment is death,” the general responds. “As far as I’m concerned then yes, if you can only shoot him to stop him, in the leg or arm – great. But if it’s more than that then, yes, you want to check with me whose blood is thicker, ours or theirs.”
Fogel then describes the careful process by which targets – including children – are identified and shot:
“I know how these orders are given. I know how a sniper does the shooting. I know how many authorizations he needs before he receives an authorization to open fire.
“It is not the whim of one or the other sniper who identifies the small body of a child now and decides he’ll shoot. Someone marks the target for him very well and tells him exactly why one has to shoot and what the threat is from that individual.
“And to my great sorrow, sometimes when you shoot at a small body and you intended to hit his arm or shoulder, it goes even higher.”
For “it goes even higher,” Fogel uses a Hebrew idiom also meaning “it costs even more.”
In this chilling statement, in which a general talks about snipers targeting the “small body of a child,” Fogel makes crystal clear that this policy is premeditated and deliberate.
While presenting unarmed Palestinian children as dangerous terrorists worthy of death, Fogel describes the snipers killing them in cold blood as the innocent, vulnerable parties who deserve protection.
“We have soldiers there, our children, who were sent out and receive very accurate instructions about whom to shoot to protect us. Let’s back them up,” he says.
Foreign Policy Journal: Jeremy Hammond: New York Times Lies That Hamas Has Been Firing Rockets at Israel
[Independent FPJ is not the same as judeocon Foreign Policy Mag, now owned by the Washington Post Company, now dba Graham Holdings Company]
The New York Times claims that, until the demonstrations began in Gaza last month, Hamas had been firing “a fairly steady tempo” of rockets at Israel. In fact, it had been firing none.
On March 30, fourteen peaceful demonstrators were killed and hundreds wounded when Israeli soldiers fired across the border fence at unarmed Palestinians in Gaza.
The day of the crime, New York Times reported that, although the protests were “billed as the start of a peaceful, six-week sit-in”, Palestinian protesters had “quickly turned violent”. The Times added, “But as some began hurling stones, tossing Molotov cocktails and rolling burning tires at the fence, the Israelis responded with tear gas and gunfire.”
Three days later, the editorial board of the Times acknowledged that the claim that Palestinians were “hurling stones, tossing Molotov cocktails and rolling burning tires at the fence” was the “Israeli version of events”.
In other words, the Times tacitly acknowledged that it had presented the Israeli propaganda version — in which the violence was instigated by the Palestinians — as though truthful.
By contrast, as Human Rights Watch noted, “the Israeli government presented no evidence that rock-throwing and other violence by some demonstrators seriously threatened Israeli soldiers across the border fence.”
Rather, “The high number of deaths and injuries was the foreseeable consequence of granting soldiers leeway to use lethal force outside of life-threatening situations in violation of international norms, coupled with the longstanding culture of impunity within the Israeli army for serious abuses.”
The Times hasn’t been faring any better with its reporting on Gaza since. In fact, it gets worse.
In an article published as “News Analysis” on April 15, David M. Halbfinger wrote in the Times about Hamas’s attitude toward such non-violent resistance. Under the headline “Hamas Sees Gaza Protests as Peaceful — and as a ‘Deadly Weapon’“, he characterizes Hamas as presenting a mixed message, supporting peaceful protests while routinely engaging in violence. He writes:
To its rockets Israel had responded with the Iron Dome antimissile system. To its tunnels Israel was answering with a $2 billion reinforced-concrete wall buried deep underground. And on Sunday, Israel said it had uncovered and destroyed the longest operational tunnel yet from Gaza.
It was no surprise, then, that after a grass-roots idea for a peaceful, long-lasting protest along the Gaza fence started gaining widespread support, Hamas brought a halt to what had been a fairly steady tempo of rocket launches into Israel and threw its considerable organizational might behind the demonstrations.
That is a lie.
Hamas had not been routinely launching rockets into Israel until the protests began.

Al Masdar News: US builds new base in Syria despite Trump’s claims of withdrawing troops soon
BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – The U.S. military is constructing a new military base in Syria’s northeastern province of Al-Hasakah, despite President Donald Trump’s claims of withdrawing troops from the country in the near future.
According to Twitter user @Obretix, the U.S. military base is located between the Al-Hasakah towns of Tal Tamer and Tal Baydar.
This new base will also have an airfield that is similar to the other U.S. installations in Syria.
Recently, French President Emmanuel Macron called on Trump to extend the stay of his troops in Syria, which is similar to the Saudi Crown Prince’s statement that was made earlier this month in Paris.
France also has at least 5 illegal military bases now in Eastern Syria, and who knows how many British military bases are planted there? Or maybe they jointly inhabit the illegal US-bases the murderous squatters have set up?
Every Country now has a decision to make, either you are with “WE THE PEOPLE” or you are with the Terrorist Jews Mossad Criminal Mafia.
Never let us tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September 11th, those malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from that LYING JEW puppet George Walker Bush and the JEW World Order Mafia, away from the guilty Terrorist Jews Mossad Criminal Mafia.
David Cameron a delusional idiot and Jew World Order puppet.

LobeLog: Media Boosts Obvious Saudi Front Group As Neutral ‘Think Tank’
by Adam Johnson
The Arabia Foundation appeared in spring 2016, seemingly out of nowhere, as a Saudi-focused think tank with “ties to Riyadh,” but vaguely independent of the regime.
Or at least independent enough so that media wouldn’t represent it as an extension of the kingdom.
But the past few weeks have clearly shown it to be little more than a PR outlet for de facto Saudi ruler Mohammed bin Salman and his sprawling, opaque business interests.
After multiple requests by FAIR for its donors, the Arabia Foundation refused to give any, other than its founder, Saudi investment banker Ali Shihabi.
It insists it doesn’t take money from “the Saudi government,” but instead is backed by unnamed private Saudi citizens.
The distinction between private citizens and the “government” in the hereditary monarchy of Saudi Arabia is notoriously blurry, but one connection is worth noting:
The registered agent and legal counsel of the Arabia Foundation, Eric L. Lewis, represented the Saudi government and related “charities” in the lawsuit brought by families of 9/11 victims over the Saudi royal family’s role in the September 11 attacks.
The website of Lewis’ law firm, Lewis, Baach, Kaufmann and Middlemiss, boasts it has “extensive experience representing and advising foreign sovereigns, including the governments of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Egypt.”
The New York Times (11/30/18) has described the group as “close to the Saudi government,” while the Washington Post’s Ishaan Tharoor (11/6/17) noted it had “close ties to the kingdom.”
That doesn’t stop the Post opinion section from running multiple op-eds from Arabia Foundation figures (5/31/17, 12/20/17, 1/4/18, 1/22/18).
In most press appearances, the group is simply identified as “a Washington-based think tank.”
Absent documented evidence of who exactly funds the group, why should media not assume—based on its connections to the government and cartoonishly pro–bin Salman line—that the Arabia Foundation is a front group for the government?
In repeated interviews (BBC World News, 3/20/18; Morning Joe, 3/20/18; CNN, 3/19/18) last week, Shihabi, the head of the nominally independent group, spun for war crimes, human rights abuses and a whole host of morally dubious activities carried out by the increasingly despotic Saudi ruler.
The Arabia Foundation’s ties to the Saudi government are never noted or even vaguely referenced in these interviews.
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, after saying the “crown prince” has engaged in a “massive corruption crackdown” (a wholly PR frame discredited earlier this month by the New York Times, 3/11/18), host Mika Brzezinksi teed up Shihabi to comment on Saudi Arabia.
The softball interview that followed hit all of the regime’s central premises without question: as well as “cracking down on corruption,” bin Salman is “modernizing Saudi Arabia” and “taking on the religious establishment.”
No one on the panel brought up Saudi Arabia’s ongoing war crimes in Yemen—consistent with MSNBC’s network-wide virtual blackout on one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises (FAIR.org, 3/20/18).
The Council on Foreign Relations’ Richard Haas made one opaque reference to Saudi “war with Yemen,” but didn’t note the thousands killed or up to one million infected with cholera; the US-backed war was was simply dismissed as a “strategic overreach.”
The New York Times’ Elisabeth Bumiller, another panelist, did get in a question about torture, which Ali Shihabi dismissed as having “no evidence” despite Bumiller speaking with several doctors who witnessed it.
Reliable Saudi stenographer David Ignatius [Jew] who, as FAIR (4/28/17) noted last year, has been running the same reformist press release for the royal family for 15 years, continued his unique brand of faux criticism, insisting that the Saudi prince was too “bold”—the political commentary equivalent of answering “I work too hard” when asked on a job interview what your biggest flaw is.
Shihabi claimed without irony that what Saudi Arabia needed was “autocracy to affect change,” and a “benevolent autocrat.”
His evidence that the masses approved of bin Salman’s “bold, needed” leadership was approved of by the masses? That there has been “no bloodshed, there’s been no demonstration, no domestic strife.”
Of course, the last time there were anti-government demonstrations, in 2011, the Saudi military opened fire on protesters, and snuffed out resistance with torture and extrajudicial killings.
In 2017, when one Shia town resisted the regime, Riyadh flattened an entire neighborhood.
This could perhaps be why the general population isn’t quick to take to the streets, but the Arabia Foundation insist it’s an implicit admission the crown prince is loved and popular.
The CNN and BBC interviews, likewise, didn’t note the Arabia Foundation’s obvious ties to the Saudi regime.
LobeLog: Mercer-Backed Group Throws Viral Video Messaging Behind Pompeo
by Eli Clifton
President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as the country’s top diplomat, CIA director Mike Pompeo, is expected to win a Senate confirmation vote later this week even if he can’t muster the votes to win approval from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today.
Pompeo’s anti-Muslim and anti-gay statements—coupled with his association with fringe anti-Muslim conspiracy theorists such as the Center for Security Policy’s Frank Gaffney and ACT! For America’s Brigitte Gabriel—raise serious concerns about his qualifications to represent the U.S. abroad.
But Pompeo appears to have the support, at least indirectly, of some of the president’s biggest financial allies, Robert and Rebekah Mercer and Sheldon Adelson.
Earlier this month, OpenSecrets revealed that billionaire hedge funder Robert Mercer was the biggest donor to Secure America Now (SAN), a shadowy group that produced a bizarre and conspiratorial video about a Muslim takeover of the U.S. in the days before the 2016 election.
Mercer also bankrolled the rise of Breitbart as a white nationalist media outlet helmed by Steve Bannon and Cambridge Analytica, the data firm that helped Trump win the 2016 election.
The Center for Responsive Politics’ Robert Maguire wrote:
“And just to bring it all home, days before the election, the group made an ‘Islamic States of America’ travel promo, where Syrian refugees have overtaken America.
In the ad, the iconic Hollywood sign reads ‘Allahu Akbar,’ and the Statue of Liberty wears a burka and holds a star and crescent.
In the video, Ground Zero in New York City is shown as place where citizens can ‘celebrate our Islamic victories.’”
Mercer sent $2 million to SAN in the 2016 tax year and the group received another $2 million from the 45 Committee, a group to which casino mogul, and the GOP’s biggest donor in the 2016 election cycle, Sheldon Adelson, contributed at least $25 million before the 2016 election.
SAN previously produced and promoted a series of videos supporting Trump’s decision to replace National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster with John Bolton, an uber-hawk who enjoys a close relationship with the Mercers and Sheldon Adelson.
SAN appears to be all-in to support Pompeo’s nomination, including publishing Facebook videos with noticeably high view-counts, suggesting that SAN might be paying to promote the videos in users’ news feeds.
One misleading video, viewed 139,000 times, urges viewers to “Comment ‘yes’ if you support Mike Pompeo as America’s new Secretary of State,” while a ticker appears to show a growing number of comments.
Playing and rewinding the video reveals that the supposed outpouring of support for Pompeo has no correlation to the number of comments appearing alongside the clip.
Other videos include a short clip touting then-Rep. Mike Pompeo’s (R-KS) controversial Benghazi hearings (52,000 views) and another with 44,000 views providing “7 reasons why Mike Pompeo is the right choice for Secretary of State.” Reason number five is: “Pompeo will help President Trump blow up the dangerous Iran Nuclear Deal.”
SAN may seem simplistic and quick to embrace both Bolton and Pompeo’s hawkish positions, but, as Maguire pointed out, their videos also cross the line by promoting misleading and untruthful messages.
Yesterday a naked man shot up a Waffle House restaurant killing 4 people and wounding some others.
Today a van ran down people on a crowded sidewalk along a half mile stretch in Toronto, Canada.
Such evils have gotten to be common in the 21st century. It accelerated after 9/11. Jews reports in the months after 9/11 said “Muslim terrorists” would be using vehicles to attack people in America and Europe.
It became obvious that Zionists were behind at least some of these terrorist attacks, ie 9/11, Charlie Hebdo. In some cases Zionists covered their tracks well enough and planted fake evidence convincing enough to make the attack look like Muslims did the evil.
How do Zionist handlers manipulate someone into committing mass murder and other terrorism?
Zionists find someone easily manipulated, with no moral limits, maybe subject to demonic influence.
Zionist advisers may have used hypnotic tactics on some perpetrators of terrorist acts. As Christianity faded away terrorists became common.
Zionists try to remove all power from gentiles, ie guns, and weapons with which gentiles might resist Zionist tyranny.
Mass shootings are immediately followed by Jews media calls for the government to confiscate guns or pass more laws against guns.
A car or truck can also be used as a deadly weapon as demonstrated today in Toronto, previously at Nice, France, etc.
Someone could use a car to run over George Soros, Jacob Rothschild, a Clinton, or a bankster.
So, Google Zionists are developing smart cars to run without a human driver.
My solution to the Jewish question is very simple (in theory). Can it be done in practice?
Jews are a minuscule % of the world’s population (.02% or such).
All of the nations of the world should band together and implement what Brother Nathanael has advocated here, namely removing Jews from positions of power and influence and labeling them enemies of humanity.
I would go a step further and remove the worst of the Jews from society and move them to intensive re-education centers, similar to the military.
The Germans tried to implement the ‘Madagascar Plan” where most Jews would be moved to Madagascar or a similar location, where they can have their own society but that would be ruled by Aryan leaders from various parts of the world.
Assimilated Jews who have a record of being good citizens would not be forced to give up most of their citizenship rights, but Jews would be forbidden from working in certain powerful professions as leaders, where they would only stir up trouble.
The second the last Jew leaves the USA the gentile Christians begin slaughtering each other over who are the rightful heirs to Mel Gibson…I meant Jesus Christ. You want to turn Christianity over to the debauched Irish Catholic psychopath who gave us the “snuff” film The Passion of the Christ? NOT ME!
If THAT is the future of Christianity then I’m a Martian.
We are in VERY Robert Graves territory here:
“The Civil Wars in England were won by the fighting qualities of the Virgin-hating Puritan Independents, who envisaged an ideal theocratic society in which all priestly and episcopal pomp should be abolished, and every man should be entitled to read and interpret the Scriptures as he pleased, with direct access to God the Father.
“Puritanism took root and flourished in America, and the doctrine of religious equalitarianism, which carried with it the right to independent thinking, turned into social equalitarianism, or democracy, a theory which has since dominated Western civilization. ”
We are now at the stage where the common people of Christendom, spurred on by their demagogues, have grown so proud that they are no longer content to be the hands and feet and trunk of the body politic, but demand to be the intellect as well—or, as much intellect as is needed to satisfy their simple appetites.” — Robert Graves…THE WHITE GODDESS
In short AJ it’s a real *&^% sandwich with no easy way out. Nice try though, I mean, I’ve said as much myself… But it won’t work.
Sorry if I ruined your day.
Have a nice day and don’t forget to floss and rinse well with Listerine. It works for me.
Another way Jews use to bully gentiles and White Christians other than with terrorism, lies, and screams of anti-Semitism is constant screams of “racism”.
A good example is the recent incident at a Starbucks Coffee Shop in Philadelphia where the manager was forced to call the police on 2 black guys who wanted to trespass and loiter refusing to buy anything and bringing their own drinks and refusing to leave.
Both she and the police asked them nicely to leave and they refused so the police were forced to arrest them.
The Jewish ADL started screaming that it was a clear case of racism on the part of the manager and the police.
Then the Jew owned media started telling lies about the incident such as CNN claiming that these 2 loiterers and trespassers were arrested only because they were Black.
Racism scams are common nowadays. Calling police on the 2 black men at Starbucks appears staged, phony.
In the Starbucks video linked below, there is a very Jewish looking man, from about the 8 to 24 second mark, lined up in front of the camera, asking police why the black men are being arrested, what did they do; as if he is part of the production.
RT: Syrians support Assad, but BBC won’t report it, British baroness tells RT after fact-finding trip
Most Syrians support their president and military, but the BBC presents Britons with a different, one-sided story, a British baroness and member of the House of Lords told RT, after returning from a trip to the war-torn country.
Caroline Cox, a baroness and Life Peer in the House of Lords, recently returned from a tour of several Syrian cities, during which she spoke with a “wide range of people,” including government officials, opposition leaders, artists, intellectuals, writers and ordinary Syrians walking in the park.
According to Baroness Cox, despite claims from western governments and media outlets, the vast majority of Syrians are thankful to President Bashar Assad and the Syrian and Russian militaries for fighting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIL) and jihadist groups.
The Syrian people “are very grateful to the Syrian Army, to Assad and, I may say, for Russian help in getting rid of the terrorists. They are the perpetrators of the most appalling atrocities and killings.”
However, British media like the BBC have done a poor job of accurately conveying this public attitude, Baroness Cox told RT.
“People are very keen to hear the point of view from people inside Syria. It’s widely felt and widely reported that BBC reporting is very biased and very one-sided, and so they really want a bigger picture.”
She also dismissed accusations that her trip to Syria was in any way inappropriate or was somehow staged for propaganda purposes.
The baroness explained how she spoke freely with random people she met in the park, “something that couldn’t have been ‘arranged’ by the government.”
“I talked to two delightful Muslim ladies, in one of the parks in Aleppo, and that wasn’t pre-arranged, and I asked them what they felt about the situation, and what they said was entirely consistent with what we’d hear in the formal meetings,” she said.
Apart from the fact that the IDF thug slapped Ahed Tamimi across the mouth first to provoke her reaction–
Haaretz: Israeli Lawmaker: Palestinian Teen Tamimi ‘Should Have Gotten a Bullet, at Least in the Knee’
Ahed Tamimi, the Palestinian teenager famed for slapping an Israeli soldier on camera, should have been shot, at least in the knee, Deputy Knesset Speaker Bezalel Smotrich (Habayit Hayehudi) wrote on Twitter Saturday.
“In my opinion, she should have gotten a bullet, at least in the kneecap,” he wrote. “That would have put her under house arrest for the rest of her life.”
He was responding to journalist Yinon Magal, who had reposted the footage of Tamimi slapping the soldier along with the text, “I’m watching this clip again and am so glad that Tamimi is still in jail. Sometimes, it’s good that the mills of justice grind slowly.”
MK Michal Rozin (Meretz) responded angrily to Smotrich’s tweet.
“You should be ashamed of yourself! Should the hilltop youth [illegal settlers] from Samaria [West Bank!] who threw stones at IDF soldiers last week also have been shot?” she wrote on Twitter, referring to violent settlers in the northern West Bank.
“Oh, I forgot – the law is different for enemies …”
“I don’t accept your excuses and explanations,” she added. “You’re a thug and an inciter.”
Tamimi’s mother Nariman and cousin Nur were also convicted in slapping incident.
Nariman Tamimi, who shot the video, was sentenced to eight months in prison and a 6,000-shekel fine for incitement, abetting an assault and interfering with a soldier in the line of duty.
Nur, who also slapped the soldier, was given a five-month suspended sentence and fined 2,000 shekels.
The Middle East Eye online news service reported on Tuesday that figures compiled by the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) indicating that the arms included components for drones, combat aircraft and helicopters along with spare parts for sniper rifles.
The report has raised fresh concerns that the weapons made by Britain are being used by the Israeli military in the occupied West Bank.

RT: Up to 50 killed in Saudi-led air strikes on Yemen wedding – local health officials
Suspected Saudi-led strikes on a wedding ceremony in Yemeni Hajjah province have resulted in multiple casualties, including women and children. The death toll ranges from 20 to 50 people, reports citing local health officials say.
On Sunday, a reported Saudi-led missile strike hit a house where a wedding ceremony was being held, in Yemen’s northwestern province of Hajjah. There are conflicting reports on casualties.
Numbers vary from 20, according to AP, to 50 people, according to local Saba News Agency. Meanwhile, Xinhua reports that at least 40 people were killed or wounded, citing a senior health official, Mohammed al-Ashwal.
The same figures were given by the head of Al Jumhouri hospital in Hajjah, who said they received “40 bodies, most of them torn to pieces,” according to Reuters. Thirty children were among the 46 injured in the attack, the official said.
The bride was among those killed in the strike, Khaled al-Nadhri, the senior Hajja province health official, said, as cited by AP. According to other reports, the groom was also hospitalized with injuries.
The death toll could rise, as some people are believed to still be under the rubble, according to Saba. At the same time, “a dozen of the injured are in critical condition,” al-Ashwal told Xinhua.
Two separate airstrikes on the wedding party were carried out, the Houthi-affiliated al-Masirah broadcaster reported. The Yemeni Health Ministry spokesman, Abdel-Hakim al-Kahlan, said that the jets kept flying over the site of the bombing for some time, which prevented ambulance personnel from assisting the wounded.
Riyadh, which has been repeatedly accused of indiscriminately bombing Yemen, said it would investigate the latest tragedy. “We take this report very seriously,” a spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition told Reuters, without elaborating.
A similar statement was made after the previous Saudi-led strike in Yemen, which lead to civilian casualties. On Friday, at least 20 people were killed after the Saudi-led coalition reportedly hit a civilian vehicle in Taiz province.
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has condemned the attack, in which “at least 50 civilians, including children, were reportedly killed” and has urged “a prompt, effective and transparent investigation” of the incident, spokesman Stephane Dujarric said, after being approached for comment by RT. “The Secretary-General reminds all parties of their obligations under international humanitarian law concerning the protection of civilians and civilian infrastructure during armed conflicts,” Dujarric added.
Since Saudi Arabia intervened in Yemen to fight the Houthi rebels and help re-instate ousted President Mansour Hadi in March 2015, more than 5,500 civilians were killed and over 9,000 injured as of the end of 2017, according to the UN.
HRW also lambasted the US and UK for supplying weapons to the Saudis. Washington and London have repeatedly been under fire for military support to Riyadh and the NGO has been calling on them to suspend those arms sales “immediately.”
Those calls, however, have had no effect on the kingdom’s allies and did not impede Western leaders from welcoming Saudi Crown Mohammad bin Salman during his foreign trip.
US President Trump recently boasted about $12.5 billion in finalized sales of American weapons to Saudi Arabia.
Meanwhile, the export of UK-made bombs and missiles jumped by almost 500 percent since the beginning of the Saudi bombardment.
As the conflict in Yemen enters its fourth year, more than 22.2 million people in Yemen need assistance, with 60 percent of the population lacking food and more than half of the country left without basic medical services, according to the UN.
The Forward: ‘Anti-Semitic’ Dutch Cartoon Shows Israeli Soldier Using Palestinian For Target Practice
A cartoon in a Dutch newspaper that depicts an Israeli soldier shooting a Palestinian youth was condemned by the Simon Wiesenthal Center as anti-Semitic.
The Jewish human rights organization announced on Monday that the cartoon printed in Volkskrant depicted Israel “as a murderous bully celebrating its 70th birthday by gunning down defenseless Palestinians at the Gaza border.”
“Instead of condemning Hamas for its pernicious and cynical abuse of civilians, the cartoon demonizes the Jewish state and her soldiers as blood-thirsty murderers celebrating Israel’s 70th birthday,” Rabbi Abraham Cooper, the Simon Wiesenthal Center Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action, stated in a press release.
Rabbi Cooper added that the cartoon would only encourage terrorism and further validate anti-Semitism in Holland and the rest of the world.
39 Palestinians murdered & thousands injured, 1500 or more permanently disabled because they are justly demanding their civil rights, return to their own lands and properties, and restoration of what the Jews have stolen from the Palestinian nation by murder, fraud and deceit.
Zionists have a devilish desire to change white Christian nations into 3rd world hell holes in order to destroy Christianity.
One Zionist strategy is to flood Christian nations with non-Christians as is being done with the migrant floods. Fake employment is one of the tactics used to lure non-Christians to former Christian nations.
One example of fake employment is civil service jobs in the US government. Civil service positions for engineers and some other disciplines are falsely claimed as being extremely hard to fill due to a phony shortage of engineers.
The US government brings in huge numbers of people from China, India, and other foreign nations under the pretense that there are not enough engineers from the USA to do the work.
In the great majority of cases these imported engineers are functionally illiterate, don’t speak english, and serve no purpose other than fulfilling Zionist ambitions to displace Christians with non-Christians.
Army, Navy, Air Force, DoD, buildings and other government institutions where these migrants work (are employed that is) have huge numbers of people sitting in front of computers all day reading stories, playing solitaire, dozing, etc, getting 6 digit incomes for nothing.
Anyone employed in government who isn’t blind knows this, though many won’t admit it. The claim that government cannot find people from the USA to fill these “jobs” is big lie propaganda.
Another big lie about employment often promoted in the Jews media is that people in the USA just won’t work, that jobs have to be given to foreigners because Americans won’t work.
At the same time Zionists push propaganda that Americans won’t work, the Zionists have put millions of able bodied people in government paid housing, on welfare, food stamps, social security, etc, to prevent them from working.
Turning people into government dependents not only takes them out of the workforce so that migrants can be given their jobs, but also gives government more control, more power, over such dependents.
Militants Trained by Norway Planning to Fight against Syrian Gov’t
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Norwegian-trained Syrian militia called the Revolutionary Command Army (MaT) allegedly meant to help quell ISIL are waging a war against the Syrian leadership and pro-government forces, a Norwegian daily reported.
According to Klassekampen, the rebel group is now openly fighting for a regime change in Syria.
In May 2016, it was announced that Norwegian soldiers were to be dispatched to Syria’s neighbor country Jordan to provide “training, counseling and operational support” to Syrian paramilitary groups fighting ISIL as part of the US-led Operation Inherent Resolve.
In June 2016, the Norwegian parliament also green-lit similar missions in Syria itself.
While Norway’s Syria contribution was formally concluded in March this year, as the mandate formally expired, the exact extent and nature of Norway’s involvement was largely kept secret. MaT commander Muhannad al-Talla confirmed to Klassekampen that his group was trained by Norwegians in al-Tanf in Southeastern Syria, where the US also has a base.
While both Prime Minister Erna Solberg and then-Defense Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide emphasized the mandate was to fight ISIL, ensuring that they “won’t endanger the peace process,” al-Talla claimed that his Western allies never concealed that his soldiers were to fight both terrorists and the Syrian government.
“From the very beginning, I’ve been completely aware that I’m fighting “the ISIL” and the al-Assad forces. (ISIL) is not gone but is clearly weakened. Now the priority is the fight Assad,” al-Talla admitted to Klassekampen.
The al-Tanf Base is a strategic outpost along the main route between Damascus and Baghdad. There, the US has created a so-called 55-square-kilometer safety zone secured by US soldiers with the help of al-Talla’s units.
Within the zone, Syrian army troops have been bombed at least two times by US combat aircraft. At the same time, several rebel groups, including MaT took part in an offensive against government forces after ISIL’s withdrawal from Eastern Syria.
The Free Syrian Army (FSA) Spokesman and Counselor Ibrahim al-Idlibi confirmed to Klassekampen that Norway-trained “militia” took part in the struggle against the government forces, such as the operation “The Country is Ours” carried out in May and June 2017.
While the Syrian government has managed to reclaim most of the country’s territory from ISIL and various rebel groups, MaT leader Muhannad al-Talla is by his own admission not ready to lay down arms.
“It is true that the current balance of power favors Assad. But we will never let him have peace. Even if he wins the war, we will continue to make his life sad for him,” al-Talla pledged.
Both Muhannad al-Talla and the Norwegian Ministry of Defense denied that Norwegians ever participated in the fight against the Syrian government and its allies. Norway formally ceased its mission in Syria, with the Defense Ministry deciding to focus on Iraq. http://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13970203001124
Mondoweiss: Israeli government justifies killing child protesters in Gaza: They’re not in school
The picture of Alaa Zamli, 15, is on top of this post because of his beautiful smile, which should have taken him very far in life. But he lived in Gaza, where he was killed by an Israeli sniper during the fence protests April 10.
Today Ben White tweeted Zamli’s picture along with those of three other children protesters Israeli snipers have killed in Gaza.
Israeli soldiers have killed four Palestinian children during the #GreatReturnMarch protests in the occupied Gaza Strip since March 30. Every sniper shot is approved, & recorded, Israeli officials say.
Mohammed Ayoub was the last to be killed: last Friday at 4:30 PM.
Israeli education minister Naftali Bennett was asked on Sunday if Israel had not gone too far when it killed Ayoub, as Orly Noy reports at +972:
Army Radio morning show host Razi Barkai asked Education Minister Naftali Bennett if “we had gone too far” in killing 15-year-old Mohammed Ayoub during the Gaza return march protests last Friday.
“If he had gone to school like every other kid,” Bennett responded, “there wouldn’t have been a problem.” That is what Israel’s education minister had to say about the murder of a child – killed by a sniper’s bullet – during a protest.
This is now a theme of Israeli propaganda surrounding the killings in Gaza: the children are to blame for not being in school, or not reading books.
Two days ago the Israeli government agency that administers the occupied territories (COGAT) posted to Facebook this photograph of a Palestinian child holding a rock at the Gaza protests, and said: “When you give children rocks to throw instead of books to learn from, it is no wonder why Gaza is in the state it is.” https://tinyurl.com/Israel-COGAT-Gazatoddler
[Actually, claiming its a photo of rock-throwing toddler is stretching it, ya COGAT morons. I think what the tot is holding in his left hand while he’s sucking on his milk bottle is actually a piece of bread-Kj]
The agency went on to blame this lack of education and violence on Hamas.
“The Hamas terrorist organization is raising a generation of children who learn only violence rather than receiving tools for the rest of their life…. As [long] as Gazans begin to invest in their children’s future instead of following the path of destruction Hamas leads them on, there will only be continued hardships in Gaza.”
But the violence is going in one direction now: no Israeli has been injured seriously in the ongoing onslaught on Gaza.
B’Tselem has said it is unlawful to direct “live fire at unarmed civilians who do not pose a danger…. Israeli officials are relying on worst-case scenarios to justify these orders.”
The main reason that children are holding rocks is that they have grown up being educated by their parents about villages inside Israel from which their parents and grandparents were expelled– the basis of the Great March of Return.
The killing of unarmed children by sniper fire ought to be a big story in the U.S. It’s not.
Although, yes, Gaza has obviously marked a turning point in American Jewish opinion. Natalie Portman cited the Gaza “atrocities” when she refused to attend a prize ceremony in Israel at which she was to receive a $2 million award, and that boycott by a famous Jewish actress has spiked fear among leading Zionists.
But Israeli justifications for killing Gazans were given a platform last week at J Street, the Democratic Party’s Israel lobby, when Israeli politician Tzipi Livni said from the main stage:
“I also know the ethical code of the IDF [Israel Defense Forces]. So if a soldier breaks that ethical code or violates the law, he is prosecuted and punished and I want you to know that because the state of Israel with the values that it represents does not and should not tolerate it.
“And I share this with you because I am familiar with the criticize [sic]. I know what the pictures that you see here.
“And I know that it is sometimes difficult to stand with these values and stand with Israel’s security, and I just wanted to share this with you personally.
This claim is patently false. As B’Tselem says:
“The military’s announcement that the general staff investigation mechanism led by Brig. Gen. Motti Baruch will look into the incidents in which Palestinians were killed, focusing on civilian deaths, is pure propaganda, intended – among other things – to prevent an independent international investigation.”
On a more hopeful note: Israeli justifications for violence are not being accepted by IfNotNow, the young insurgent American Jewish group that is demanding that Jewish leaders speak out so that more Palestinians are not killed.
Israel’s ongoing siege and closure of the Gaza Strip is chronically affecting every aspect of life in Gaza, including access to fresh food and water.
The military appropriation of outlying farming lands for “security” purposes, and the constant suppression of Gazan agriculture and fishing industry and high reliance on humanitarian aid/donor food results in chronic food insecurity and malnutrition, as well as water and soil-born illnesses.
Many of the Gaza male youth often seen are thin and undersized for their age.
Facebook replies to COGAT’s Facebook photo of the Arab toddler in diapers holding a “stone”:
Alex Abu Ata: His future: stuck for his entire life in a humanitarian disaster of 360 square kilometers, with no clean water, no electricity, no medicine, no rights, no freedom, no hope, and shot at if he dares to approach the fence of his prison. Thank you Israel!
Gabriel Webber It’s a little distasteful for a Government to share memes jeering at how horrible life is for an ethnic minority. You could always maintain dignified silence if you have nothing appropriate to post this evening?
