And it springs from a bad scene at the Western Wing.
That’s where scripts are shoved into TV cracks and conflicts of interests swell into presidential scraps.
[Clip: “I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN and if you did it well, your ratings would be much better.” “But let me ask, if I, if I may ask one other question.” “Okay, that’s enough.” “Mr President, if I may, if I may ask one other question.” “Okay, Peter, go ahead.” “Are you worried?” “That’s enough. That’s enough. That’s enough.” “Mr President, I didn’t, well, I was going to ask one other. The other folks that had…” “That’s enough. That’s enough.” “Pardon me, ma’am, I’m, Mr President…” “Excuse me, that’s enough.” Excuse me, that’s enough.” “Mr. President, I had one other question if…” “Peter. Let’s go.” “I may ask on the Russia investigation. Are you concerned that you may have indictments…” “I’m not concerned about anything with the Russia investigation because it’s a hoax.” “…that you may indictments coming down? Are you?” “That’s enough. Put down the mic.” “Mr. President, are you worried about indictments coming down in this investigation? Mr President…” “I’ll tell you what: CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN. Go ahead.”]
Who should be working for CNN?
Fake news by any other names is a tiff with a bigger sniff.
[Clip: “Let’s get to the bigger issue. In 2017, last year, you tweeted this, and I want to quote it accurately, ‘The fake news media is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American people.’ “That’s true, 100 percent. Not the media.” “I - “I’m glad you’re finally calling it correctly because they like to leave the fake news.” “OK, but that’s what you said. “Fake news - so, the people - “But - ” “- that are supporting me in particular, they’re very smart people. They’re hard working, brilliant, great people. They know when the news is fake and they get angry when they see all of the fakeness that I - frankly - ” “But there have been people who have been critical of other presidents, they’re - no president has liked his press coverage. John Kennedy, in your Oval Office, canceled the subscription to the New York Herald Tribune. Nobody called it the enemy of the American people.” “Chris, I’m calling the fake news is the enemy - it’s fake, it’s phony.”]
And Hate Speech is phony too.
It’s simply speech that a chosen few hate to hear.
And speaking of a chosen few, out of all the White House correspondents, Acosta has been selected as the designated ‘free speech’ driver.
[Clip: “We’re extremely pleased with the ruling today. This is a great day for the First Amendment in journalism. We’re very excited to have Mr Acosta be able to go back and get his hard pass and report the news.”]
It was almost short lived.
[Clip: “CNN was victorious in round one. I said on Friday I don’t know how many rounds there are going to be. I said there was going to be many rounds in this legal battle because almost as soon as that temporary restraining order was put into effect on Friday, Bill Shine and Sarah Sanders, two of the defendants in the lawsuit, sent a letter to Acosta, a two page letter that I have here, that essentially lays the groundwork to take the press pass and revoke it again. Which would essentially be at the end of the month, you know, 11 days from today. So the letter says they believe he violated basic standards of behavior at that press conference on November 7. Of course, all the nation’s major news outlets are standing with CNN, standing with Acosta in this case. But the White House is vowing to fight on.”]
You got to choose your battles, yet Trump was looking to pick a fight on this one.
Now he’s giving Acosta’s pass back so long as he obeys ‘new rules’ that cap one question per sound bite.
The real question isn’t about Trump and Acosta sparring on TV.
The bigger question is, with all the “major news outlets standing with Acosta”— CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX—will Fake News, Biased Bulletins, Selected Scoops, and Narrow Narratives ever end?
Oh, it will, since a great reckoning portends.
It’s coming, though it tarry, wait for it, it will surely come.
Thank you for a terrific Video once again. Love the title — Tribulation Trump Vs Anarchy Acosta — it reminds of the colorful names from Trump’s old World Wrestling Entertainment days.
The fact is, no matter what Trump does with his perpetual feuds with Acosta, CNN and the rest of the Jew-Stream Media, it makes money for the news companies, and any publicity good or bad is good for Trump.
In the meantime, thanks to Trump’s very generous Israel-loving policies and affection for Netanyahu, his affection for Zionist Nationalism and his own Yiddishland White House, Jewish Zion is tightening their strangling death-grip on what’s left of any genuine and honest efforts at an independent free press, including the minor minority of better quality of Jews who actually do have good journalistic ethics and and follow good practices.
This latest from RT:
‘Disgrace to Jews’: Israeli consulate goes after RT America reporter over Gaza tweets
The Israeli consulate in Boston has sent angry messages to a RT America reporter, after his criticism of how the US media were covering the deadly events in Gaza was retweeted by Palestinian activists.
Dan Cohen ✔@dancohen3000
I received this creepy and menacing direct message from @IsraelinBoston. Apparently the consulate uses its official account to monitor and harass journalists, especially Jewish ones.
2:15 PM - Nov 20, 2018
Apparently, the messages were triggered by a couple of tweets by Cohen that were retweeted by Ali Abunimah, the co-founder of Electronic Intifada, a Chicago-based news site reporting from the Palestinian perspective. One of them referenced a documentary Cohen co-produced, called ‘Killing Gaza,’ about the 2014 conflict in the enclave.
Ali Abunimah ✔@AliAbunimah
The Israeli government monitors my Twitter account to see who I retweet and then sends them private messages to harass them. A totally normal thing for a government to do. @IsraelinBoston
Ali Abunimah ✔@AliAbunimah
If you have received any private messages from any Israeli government office harassing you because I (or anyone else) retweeted you, I’d appreciate it if you could let me know. Let’s expose this harassment and bullying by the thuggish and unhinged apartheid regime.
2:18 PM - Nov 20, 2018
After Cohen posted the messages from the Israeli consulate on Twitter, Abunimah called for others who have received such harassment to get in touch with him, denouncing it as “bullying by the thuggish and unhinged apartheid regime.”
Last week, the Israeli consulate in New York engaged in a Twitter back-and-forth with journalist Ben Norton, after he commented on the New York Times’ editing of its Gaza coverage to make it more pro-Israel.
READ MORE: ‘Get it right!’ Israeli consulate spars with US journalist over Gaza headlines
Norton was told to “get it right” and accused of getting his news from the “terrorist propaganda TV station of a genocidal terrorist group like Hamas.”
Cohen was busy working on a story about the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, and was not available for further comment.
I like the way President Trump handled the rude CNN reporter Jim Acosta, Br. Nat, he told Acosta several times to pass the microphone over to the next journalist so that he could pose a question, but Acosta wouldn’t do it; instead, he shouted a question at Trump, who had an intern snatch the microphone from Acosta’s hand to give to another reporter.
Finally, Trump had security personnel remove Acosta and revoke his press pass.
Naturally, CNN and the other members of the Pirhana press defended Acosta and a Leftist judge ordered Trump to return the press pass to Acosta. However, Trump set up a new set of rules for the next Press Conference, making sure Acosta doesn’t repeat his infantile stunts. The judge couldn’t do anything about that, so we’ll have to wait for the next Press Conference and stay tuned.
I wish you a very Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving, Br. Nat, and God bless you always.
From Australia we see that your media thinks that it is the news.
With the pretty news anchors/actors carrying on as if they are the stars of ‘news hour’. Acosta is just one of these dickheads trying to sell a book or get his presence amplified for his own show, a grandstander not in the least concerned with the truth but smart enough to use the anti-trump hysteria to generate publicity.
Considering that these people are mere mouthpieces is made all the more obvious when they attempt to voice ‘opinion’- I cannot believe the level of ignorance on display!
Are all Americans such hypocritical morons? The United States of Hypocrisy?
As for the insidious Israeli trolling that takes up some of the letter page, may I recommend the two part Al JAZEERA documentary on Israeli influence perpetrated in the US.
It may be found on youtube- it is presently banned from showing on US TV.
These bastards are organised and funded to the nth degree. Make yourself sick and watch it. While you are about it watch the version Al Jazeera made in the UK and you will know the same is happening in the US.
The Israelis have already taken over Australia lock stock and barrel and most of us have-not a clue.
I must look into this part of the Bible and read it in context….. but it does sound pretty spot on.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
The answer to this irritant is to stop having these daily press briefings. They are not mandated by any law.
The White House can disseminate all non-classified information via a website or several websites to the entire world. The obsolete “news media,” what’s left of it, can extract, dissect, scrutinize, this information and conjure up their usual satanic dog vomit all they want.
The Talmudic brood of vipers only show up to harass and distress the administration and by extension the remaining true American populace.
Nigerian Email Scam? Binary Options Call Center Scams?
Good chance they’re Israeli working in, of, or for the organized criminal terrorist-robber Jewish State, while Jewmericans are being entertained by the latest Trump-o-rama episode here in Yiddishland.
Alison Weir of If Americans Knew has written a comprehensive expose.
Unz Review: Alison Weir Is Israel Turning a Blind Eye as Israeli Scammers Swindle Victims in France, US, Elsewhere?
Investigations reveal a pattern of Israeli officials stone-walling efforts to stop the perpetrators of massive financial swindles in various countries, from Europe to the US to the Philippines… While some Israeli reporters work to expose the scams, a new one is already underway
French and Israeli media report that a group largely made up of Israelis scammed 3,000 French citizens out of approximately $20 million. Most of the stolen money is in Israel, but Israeli authorities are reportedly failing to cooperate with France in prosecuting the scammers and retrieving the money.
This is the latest of numerous examples of Israeli officials stone-walling international efforts against the perpetrators of massive financial swindles around the world, according to Israeli investigative journalists and others.
These scams have brought estimated billions into the Israeli economy, propping up a regime widely condemned for human rights abuses and ethnic cleansing against indigenous Palestinians.
Together, the stories paint a picture of a government that seems to be turning a blind eye to – and even protecting – scammers.
A Finance Magnates analysis reports that one of the swindles alone has brought in over a billion dollars and employs 5,000 people. And a new scam, described below, may help what is predicted to be “the next major driver of the Israeli economy.”
South Front: “MODERATE REBELS” ATTACK ALEPPO CITY WITH CHEMICAL WEAPONS. CASUALTIES REPORTED (PHOTOS)
At the late hours of November 24, unknown militants launched several rockets containing chlorine gas at residential areas in the northern part of Aleppo city, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).
“Terrorist groups fired rocket shells containing toxic gases at al-Khalidiye and al-Neel Street neighborhoods in Aleppo city,” the SANA said in a press release.
The reporter of the Syrian News TV in Aleppo said that 75 civilians, including at least 14 children, were intoxicated as a result of the chemical attack. The injured civilians were reportedly transported to the hospitals of Aleppo University and al-Razy.
Numerous sources from Government-held #Aleppo reporting dozens injured in mortar attacks this evening & some apparently filled with chlorine gas. Several images circulating online.
Images continue to emerge from #Aleppo pic.twitter.com/NvXgjowQNn
Few hours after the attack, local sources said that a group of experts had arrived in Aleppo to examine the attack site and the victims.
This indicates that the Damascus government is planning to call for an international investigation into this incident.
Russia and the Damascus government warned earlier this year that radical militants in northern Syria have received chemical materials, including chlorine, from Western countries.
Furthermore, two days ahead of the attack in Aleppo, a report by the Russian news outlet Sputnik warned that French militants-experts have armed several rockets with chemical warheads in southern Idlib.
In its first response to the chemical attack, the SAA shelled several positions of the militants in the western Aleppo countryside and the southeastern Idlib countryside.
A much more serious response is expected in the upcoming few hours.
Trumpeans are Beating the War Drums for Iran “Regime Change”, Again
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
November 26, 2018
Iranian President Rouhani has once again called for the destruction of Israel. He referred to it as a “cancerous tumor” and a “fake regime.”
Such statements inflame tensions in the region by seemingly calling for war.
At an international conference on Islamic unity, Rouhani also encouraged Muslims worldwide to unite against the United States. This is a dangerous and irresponsible step that will further deepen Iran’s isolation.
The Iranian regime is no friend of America or Israel when they repeatedly call for the death of millions, including Muslims.
First of all, every time you open your mouth, the vast majority of the Iranian people, for all that some may differ from their government including the opposition and the reformer parties, it prompts them to simply tighten up their national-patriotic sentiments and unify in collective resistance to Jewmerica, Israhell, and the rest of the Western rats’ nest.
Speaking of “fake news” which the Trumpean-Kushner White House constantly screeches on and on about, Rouhani didn’t call for the destruction of Israel as you so pompously libel in your official written statement.
What Rouhani said in his address to Islamic Unity Conference is translated into English is on his own official website. The content is historically accurate, and addresses obvious Western and Israeli threats and clear dangers to Muslim nations.
Rouhani seldom if ever resorts to this strong rhetoric. There’s nothing in Rouhani’s address that I actually disagree with or dispute. Not once did Rouhani even come close to threatening destruction of Israel, and his main points stiffening political resistance to any of Jewmerica’s further murder, mayhem, regime changes, covert wars with proxy international jihadists, wars of Western aggression, and worshipful adoration of Israhell.
The fuller context of what deceitful Pompass is deliberately cherry picking and distorting is this:
“What the United States wants in the region today is slavery,” Dr Rouhani said, “After World War II, the United Nations was formed based on more power and the right to veto, and anyone having deadlier weapon, got the right to veto in the world”.
He continued, “One of the most important effects of World War II was the formation of a cancerous tumour in the region”.
The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran went on to say, “They deployed a power in the region that completely obeys the West in regional matters,” adding, “They formed the fake Israeli regime and killed and displaced the historical nation of Palestine”.
“If the United States is honest in saying that they have confidence in some countries in the region, why do they say that the reason for protecting them is Israel’s survival and security?,” said Rouhani.
He continued, “Submission to America and the West means betraying Islamic ideals and Muslim generations, and laying red carpet for historic criminals”.
Read the summary of President Rouhani’s address to the Islamic Unity Conference:
As the atheists hate God, rhe soulless Demoncrap LiberAhole hates the truth!
Now you see why 99% of ALL Jew Worms vote Demoncrap. It’s a lie! They are Liars, Deceivers, Frauds and Imposters.
Democrat is a word that gets confused by ignorant Yidiots with Democracy. Hell - we have always had a Democracy — Look at the elections for crying out loud. Democracy in the works right there.
No Republican has ever threatened to take Democracy away, but too much Democracy = Socialism, and too much Conservatism = too much God and Truth for evil worms to handle.
The only way to feasibly & effectively remove that smirk from these cretin Jew-controlled soulless Yidiots is to confront them with THE TRUTH. But of course, they will deter, distract, and squirm when faced with it, and always challenge it, but they won’t be smiling when doing so :)+
I remember years back you wrote original research articles that exposed many entirely new concepts about how the Khazarian Mafia REALLY works.
An expose’ one on how they use lobbying and Congressional funding for the Corporate Fortune 500 businesses they control.
How Jewish companies run the 1984 Orwell beast grid in the USSA and Internationally.
Or how the self-chosen rig and manipulate prices on the stock market and use their bogus financial media outlets to prime the average goy chump investor, while they know what’s going to happen in the markets before it happens. Or how Jews run all of the retail outlets/clothing lines/etc. and push crap like Black Friday, etc. would all be interesting ideas.
I hate the news cycle with stories like Acosta the latest thing the Trumpsteins did or Kavanaugh. It’s all what the Khazarian Mafias puppets did as they lie to us and get us all riled up and upset with their big media news outlets. They even run Reuters and the ASAP so all the small town news channels and news papers just follow the Khazarian Mafia script too.
This Country is sooo stupid today. Why can’t the masses who worship Trump on Twitter and Facebook ever see any of this? It’s not THAT hard.
Thanks for reading. You have a lot of courage, character, and strength to constantly out yourself out there in the public (even literally when you go hold signs in all these big cities) like you do.
I just hope more of these NFL game watching, beer chugging, Trump voting morons can see the truth and connect the dots before were up to our eyeballs in 3rd World invaders (that Khazarian will likely arm up to bring in the JWO) to be the dupes in their next Bolshevik Revolution here in Jewmerica for their totalitarian takedown of this sick, corrupt (shell of it’s former self) Country.
Press TV: Israeli military commander calls for Hezbollah leader’s assassination
Commander of the Israeli military’s 300th Infantry Brigade has called on the Tel Aviv regime to resort to the policy of “targeted killings,” arguing that the assassination of the Secretary General of Hezbollah will deal a fatal blow to the Lebanese resistance movement.
Colonel Roy Levy, in an article published in the Hebrew-language Ma’arakhot magazine, which is affiliated to the Israeli army, wrote that “targeted killings” must be carried out, and that Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah should be killed by commando forces backed by the air force, the Hebrew-language Walla news website reported.
“His personality and military experience have turned him into a center of gravity. All of his organization - from senior commanders to the low-ranking soldiers - and thus the fighting spirit of the enemy will be harmed once he is targeted,” Levy wrote.
He then recommended Israeli military operations deep inside Lebanon, asserting that the offensives would yield many benefits despite the risks associated with them.
The Israeli military commander also called for “a proper positioning of combat commando units with the aim of subjugating the enemy.”
“Should we make a similar decision and kill the leaders of enemy organizations, for example, Nasrallah? The answer is not easy.
“But the idea of harming the enemy’s fighting spirit by damaging its property must be examined. We must adopt a policy not anchored in force, but in ruse instead. The deep activity of commandos in a way that surprises the enemy and strikes its equipment will be an important means of damaging its fighting morale, and will lead to its defeat,” Levy commented.
On November 28, 2017, the Israeli military’s chief spokesman said Nasrallah would be a target for assassination in any war between Israel and Hezbollah.
Ronen Manelis added that the Israeli military is conducting psychological and media warfare against Hezbollah.
“One of the things we talk about is the transition from traditional media consumption to social media,” Manelis said, adding, “We are also active in this theater, and it is an operational theater in every respect. Just in the past few weeks, we’ve taken a great many actions that caused consternation on the other side.”
“There won’t be a clear victory picture in the text war, though it’s clear that Nasrallah is a target,” he added.
These dangerous Killer Klowns couldn’t even get it right trying to assassinate the Hamas commander inside the open air prison of Gaza.
What makes them think they can do better with Sheikh Nasrallah?
No, if Nasrallah falls, there will be 100 more like him stepping out of the shadows to take his place of leadership over not just the well-educated political arm, but the military wing being one of the most battle-hardened and professional quality paramilitaries in the Middle East into whom he has personally poured all of his knowledge and wisdom, not to mention up-to-date military schooling, technical training and tutelage by the SAA, the Russians and Iranians.
Nasrallah long ago prepared his people for this possibility. And I will add, anything happens to Nasrallah, not a few Lebanese Christians in Southern Lebanon will sign up with Hezbollah’s auxiliary Christian paramilitary wing and line up at the northern border of Occupied Palestine.
Nasrallah is certainly the “center of gravity” but, like any great general, he has long ago taught his people that he is neither indispensable or irreplaceable, his replacement candidates are already trained, and since horizontal secrecy has long been the key to Hezbollah’s cellular resistance structure (many families didn’t even know their sons were paramilitary fighters until after their deaths), the Jewish goons will have a difficult time finding them all.
Hezbollah’s political leadership and organized paramilitary command structure will keep the fighting spirit alive.
Not only that, Sheikh Nasrallah is the grand master at deconstructing Israeli psychological warfare and propaganda, then generating his own, which drives Israeli Jews into hysterics when he turns it all on them with his keen intellect.
Actually most of his ‘propaganda’ is telling factual truths about Israeli political and military weaknesses, as well as geopolitical realities. Nasrallah will publicly respond to Israeli threats and aggressions, but never in the same way twice, and he will exactly describe what Hezbollah will do should they be pushed to take retaliatory measures to defend Lebanon.
When Israelis want to know what is going on inside Israel, especially any news that has been judicially gagged and/or come under the Military Censor’s official stamp, they listen to Nasrallah’s weekly broadcasts, and follow his allied news media groups.
“So the #US invades a country, in this case #Iraq, occupies & demolishes most of it, kills and maims tens of thousands of civilians, then #Trump has the audacity to ask it to foot the bill of its aggression?”
Axios.com: Trump to Iraqi PM: How about that oil?
President Trump twice raised to the Iraqi prime minister the idea of repaying America for its wars with Iraqi oil, a highly controversial ask that runs afoul of international norms and logic, according to sources with direct knowledge.
Trump appears to have finally given up on this idea, but until now it hasn’t been revealed that as president he’s raised the concept twice with Iraq’s prime minister and brought it up separately in the Situation Room with his national security team.
In March last year, at the end of a White House meeting with Iraq’s then-Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, Trump brought up the subject of taking oil from Iraq to reimburse the United States for the costs of the war there.
“It was a very run-of-the-mill, low-key, meeting in general,” a source who was in the room told Axios. “And then right at the end, Trump says something to the effect of, he gets a little smirk on his face and he says, ‘So what are we going to do about the oil?’”
Between the lines: On the campaign trail, Trump complained that the U.S. had spent trillions in Iraq and lost thousands of lives but got “nothing” in return.
He lamented that usually in war “to the victor belong the spoils” and he repeatedly said the U.S. should have seized Iraq’s oilfields as reimbursement for the steep costs of the war.
Top national security figures from both parties condemned Trump’s idea, calling it outrageous and unworkable — a violation of international law that would fuel the propaganda of America’s foes.
In the March meeting, the Iraqi prime minister replied, “What do you mean?” according to the source in the room. “And Trump’s like, ‘Well, we did a lot, we did a lot over there, we spent trillions over there, and a lot of people have been talking about the oil.’”
Al-Abadi “had clearly prepared,” the source added, “and he said something like, ‘Well, you know Mr. President, we work very closely with a lot of American companies and American energy companies have interests in our country,’” the source added. “He was smirking. And the president just kind of tapped his hand on the table as if to say ‘I had to ask.’”
“I remember thinking, ‘Wow. He said it. He couldn’t help himself,’” the source said.
A second source who was in the room confirmed this account. “It was a look down and reach for your coffee moment,” the second source said.
A third source, who was briefed at the time on the conversation between Trump and al-Abadi, said the back and forth “made its rounds” around the National Security Council.
“It was still early on in the administration, and we were all still trying to figure out how this was going to go, and so it was one of those horror stories … he’s really going to do this.”
Why it matters: Trump’s desire to raid Iraq’s oil is illegal and unworkable. But it reveals a great deal about his approach to the Middle East. Trump remains hellbent on extracting payments from Middle Eastern countries, in the form of natural resources, for the trillions of dollars America has spent since the early 2000s.
Bob Woodward and others have reported on the formal steps Trump took to push his team to extract rare minerals from Afghanistan as repayment for the war. (Security concerns have stymied that effort; though Afghan’s leadership was more open to Trump’s pitch than Iraq’s leaders have been.)
Trump’s national security team has mostly pushed back on or ignored these desires to raid Middle Eastern natural resources.
The president raised the issue of oil again with al-Abadi on a phone call in the summer of 2017. The conversation was vague and didn’t go anywhere, but H.R. McMaster admonished Trump afterward, according to a source with direct knowledge.
In the source’s recollection, the former national security adviser said to Trump, “We can’t do this and you shouldn’t talk about it. Because talking about it is just bad,” the source said, channeling McMaster, “It’s bad for America’s reputation, it’ll spook allies, it scares everybody, and it makes us look like — I don’t remember if he used words this harsh — like criminals and thieves, but that was the point he was trying to get across.”
“You won’t be able to do it anyway and you’ll harm our reputation and your own reputation just from talking about it.”
Trump did not react kindly, the source said. “It was frustration that he was trying to get his advisers to do things that he wanted them to do and they were just pushing back.”
The bottom line: It’s not a one-time thing. Two sources described being in the Situation Room in 2017 with Trump, Defense Secretary Mattis and national security officials discussing Iraq.
Both said Trump brought up the prospect of seizing Iraq’s oil, and Mattis pushed back.
“Trump was like, ‘We’re idiots,’” recalled one of the sources who was in the Situation Room for the conversation.
“[Trump] was like, ‘What are we doing there, what do we get out of this, why don’t we take the oil?’… And then Mattis spoke up. Made the same point that H.R. made. There’s no physical way to do it. It would be a violation of international law, it would be demoralizing for allies in the region, it would give our enemies propaganda — they’d be able to accuse us of theft.”
Asked about our reporting, Pentagon chief spokeswoman Dana White said, “We do not discuss internal deliberations, and the secretary’s advice and counsel to the president is private.”
And an NSC spokesperson said, “We do not comment on the details of the president’s conversations with foreign leaders.”
The spokesperson continued, “[w]e have long sought to help Iraq achieve energy independence and continue to do so.
[Presumably energy independence from Iran, Iraq’s major oil trading partner - Kj]
“We are encouraged by recent developments and believe Iraq can satisfy its own demand for energy, stop importing electricity, and increase its oil output to provide essential revenue required to rebuild following ISIS defeat and lay the foundation for Iraq’s future.
The United States looks forward to working with the government and people of Iraq to make this possible.”
More like hundreds of thousands, and probably closer to 1 million Iraqis murdered and maimed.
And let’s not forget the US military gift that keeps on giving to generations of the Iraqi people, and the Serbs, and the Afghanis — Depleted Uranium. Oh, yes, to US veterans of the two Iraq wars and the Afghanistan war, and their families, too.
DU is uranium with a lower content of the fissile isotope U-235 than natural uranium. DU contains 99.5% Uranium 238 after Uranium 235 is removed, therefore it is (”only” 60% as radioactive as natural uranium with its higher content of U-235, so therefore DU is “safe”.
DU is a chemically toxic and radioactive heavy metal and because of this it is hazardous to a person’s health. Thanks to nano-particles and dust contaminating soil, water and air during the US/NATO aggression of 1991 and again 2003, causing inhaled depleted uranium exposure, with a radioactive half-life of something like 4 billion years, the Iraqis will be thanking Jewmerica for centuries to come, perhaps until the end of time, for this enduring “gift”.
Iraqis suffering ovarian and testicular damage and unprecedented genetic birth defects, give birth to babies so monstrously deformed and mutated they are barely recognizable as human. I cry every time I look at their pictures, and see the medical staff tenderly giving these most unfortunate of the unfortunates permanent chronic nursing and hospital care. I remember reading that in Fallujah, I believe it was, that the genetic defects and mutations were so common that doctors were recommending that women no longer bear children.
Iraqis suffer multiple forms of cancers in one human body on an unheard of scale, and serious respiratory, neurological, and kidney damage to name a few of the chemical and radioactive toxicity syndromes.
From Disabled World.com: “Dr. Jawad Al-Ali, Director of the Oncology Center at the largest hospital in Basra, Iraq stated in a conference in Japan, “Two strange phenomena have come about in Basra which I have never seen before.
“The first is double and triple cancers in one patient. For example, leukemia and cancer of the stomach. We had one patient with 2 cancers - one in his stomach and kidney. Months later, primary cancer was developing in his other kidney-he had three different cancer types.
“The second is the clustering of cancer in families. We have 58 families here with more than one person affected by cancer. Dr Yasin, a general Surgeon here has two uncles, a sister and cousin affected with cancer. Dr Mazen, another specialist, has six family members suffering from cancer. My wife has nine members of her family with cancer.
“Children in particular are susceptible to DU poisoning. They have a much higher absorption rate as their blood is being used to build and nourish their bones and they have a lot of soft tissues. Bone cancer and leukemia used to be diseases affecting them the most, however, cancer of the lymph system which can develop anywhere on the body, and has rarely been seen before the age of 12 is now also common.”
“The U.S. Army’s own contractor, Doug Rokke, who headed a clean up of depleted uranium (DU) after the first Gulf War stated, ‘Depleted uranium is a crime against God and humanity.’ Mr. Rokke went on to state that when his crew went to the Gulf they were all very healthy people, yet after performing clean up operations, 30 members of his staff died and the majority of the others, to include Mr. Rokke himself, “developed serious health problems.”
And now Trump wants his payback. Absolutely no moral compass whatsoever.
Bush invaded Iraq on entirely false and fabricated pretext of “weapons of mass destruction” when none existed, I might add. He joked about it at the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2004.
Lots of yuks!
Uploader Notes: “This piece is a great way to recall the vicious callous disregard Bush has for soldiers and human beings, demonstrates well the cynical disrespect Bush, as well as the laugh-along DC elite, have for those who have died or been maimed as a direct result of his/their illegal war.
Solidly and meticulously researched in every detail.
Foreign Policy Journal: The Myth of the U.N. Creation of Israel
“There is a widely accepted belief that United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 “created” Israel, based upon an understanding that this resolution partitioned Palestine or otherwise conferred legal authority or legitimacy to the declaration of the existence of the state of Israel.
“However, despite its popularity, this belief has no basis in fact, as a review of the resolution’s history and examination of legal principles demonstrates incontrovertibly.” — Jeremy Hammond

Paul has placed a “block” on legislation to give Israel $38 billion over the next 10 years – $23,000 per every Jewish Israeli family of four. This is the largest military aid package in U.S. history and amounts to $7,230 per minute to Israel, or $120 per second. A stack of $38 billion dollar bills would reach ten times beyond the international space station.
A block is a legislative procedure in which a senator calls on the floor leader not to move forward with a bill and indicates that the senator may filibuster against it.
Jewish News Syndicate reported last week that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) had sent an action alert to its members calling on them to pressure Paul to remove his block on the bill, ‘‘S. 2497 Ileana Ros-Lehtinen United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018.’
[Aka The AIPAC United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018 or The AIPAC Bill of 2018. — Kj]
Now, according to Free Beacon, a right-wing pro-Israel website, AIPAC has also been purchasing advertisements on Facebook attacking Paul “as the primary Senate force blocking the reauthorization of the U.S.-Israel security pact.”
Another pro-Israel group, Christians United for Israel (CUFI), has also reportedly organized an email blitz to pressure Paul to remove his hold, and has “invested heavily” in ads in Kentucky targeting Rand’s constituents.
According to Free Beacon, “Paul, a proponent of ending U.S. aid across the globe, has had multiple confrontations with the pro-Israel community over the years as result of his views. Paul has sought to hold up U.S. aid to Israel multiple times over the years, creating friction between him and top U.S. pro-Israel lobbying shops.”
Yesterday CUFI sent an email to supporters around the country saying: “Sen. Rand Paul is blocking the U.S.-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act, S.2497. This bill is the cornerstone of U.S. support for Israel.”
In the message, CUFI calls Paul the “last obstacle to getting this bill signed into law.”
Free Beacon reports that Paul has also recently proposed suspending U.S. arms sales to Saudi Arabia and Bahrain over their attacks on what the Free Beacon calls “pro-Iran militants in Yemen.” Paul has long opposed U.S. support for the attacks on Yemen, which is on the brink of famine and has 50,000 dead.
It is truly “David against Goliath,” and “David” needs our help!
In a historic development, U.S. Senator Rand Paul is opposing the Israel lobby and attempting to stop aid to Israel.
Senator Paul has placed a “hold” on a bill that would give Israel a total of $38 billion over the next 10 years (the largest such aid package in U.S. history).
A “hold” means that Senator Paul has informed Majority Leader Mitch McConnel that Paul does not wish the bill to reach the Senate floor, and that Paul may filibuster the bill if it moves forward.
AIPAC has issued an action alert calling on its members to pressure Senator Paul to end his resistance. (Fyi: Majority Leader McConnell has received over $1.5 million from Israel partisans and appears to be in AIPAC’s pocket.)
We urge everyone to take two extremely important actions:
(1) Contact Senator Rand Paul and urge him to continue his courageous action to block the aid.
(2) Contact the two senators from your state and ask them to join Senator Paul in opposing this bill.
This is NOT a partisan action; it has nothing to do with political parties or whether you oppose or agree with Senator Paul’s other political positions.
This is an opportunity for us to work to stop the massive aid to Israel that enables its criminal oppression and carnage against Palestinians, helps fund Israeli violence against others in the region, creates destructive hostility to the U.S., and diverts U.S. tax money from the urgent needs of Americans.
Please contact Senator Paul and your senators now!!
