Some call it insubordination, others call it Bolton’s bluster.
But I call it the bottomless pit where wars for Israel just won’t quit.
We’ve got the same ‘enemy,’ you know, that boogeyman Iran, parked some 7000 miles away, that never attacked another country in over 230 years.
Yet Bolton’s got his marching orders, I mean, he didn’t win Sheldon Adelson’s “Defender of Israel” Award for nothing.
[Clip: “I am truly humbled to receive ZOA’s Dr Miriam and Sheldon Adelson Award for Defense of Israel. This organization has long served as a staunch advocate for the Jewish state, for the Jewish people, and for a strong US-Israeli partnership.”]
The cash cow that keeps on giving, milked from the US teat at $10.5 million a day, where only the goys die young in wars that feed that ’special partnership.’
And here’s that special beneficiary!
[Clip: “Boy, am I glad to see you here.” “How are you?” “Glad to be here. Glad to be here. Thanks for having me over. Thank you.” “Ambassadors, come on.”]
They’re like two school girls giddy and gushing all over each other.
[Clip: “Wow! Ambassador Bolton, John, it’s a pleasure to see you. We’ve been friends for many years, and I can testify that in and out of office you’ve been a tremendous friend, tremendous friend of Israel, tremendous champion of the American-Israel alliance.”]
How about just a tremendous champion of America?
[Clip: “And it’s particularly momentous to welcome you here after the momentous decisions of President Trump. Moving the embassy to Jerusalem, get out of the terrible Iran deal. And I look forward to discussing with you a whole array of topics, but the most important one is how to continue to roll back Iran’s aggression in the region, and to make sure that they never have a nuclear weapon.”]
It’s din din with Bibzy where Bolton’s gonna stick a bandaid on Trump’s boo boo.
We’re not ‘pulling out’ of Syria—just reshuffling.
US special forces are dug in, and the CIA’s paramilitary squads remain very active.
And Trump’s got an escape hatch too.
He vowed he would never, ever tip his hand when unpacking foreign policy.
He gave himself a license to lie.
He’s obsessed on that ‘hobgoblin’ Iran which poses no threat to America.
So send in his Zio fix it man, Bolton The Bellicose, and believe me, we’ll be eating mouthfuls of sand for a long time to come.
[Clip: “Well, it’s a great honor for me to be here. It’s great to see you again, and to talk about the US-Israel relationship. Uh, it’s uh been an exciting year and a half in the Trump Administration with some of the things you mentioned, but obviously we’ve got great challenges for Israel, for the United States, for the whole world. The Iran nuclear weapons program, and ballistic missiles programs are right at the top of the list. So I’m delighted to be here and look forward to our discussion.” “Thank you. Let’s have dinner. And talk.”]
Over bombing de-nuked Iran.
Iran is not our ‘challenge.’ Iran poses no danger to American soil. It’s Israel’s challenge.
World Jewry should have thought twice before colonizing Palestine and waging war on the Palestinians when it plopped its terror state right smack in the middle of an unsympathetic Middle Eastern world.
When the sand hits the fan it’s time to change the game plan.
[Clip: “Syria was lost long ago, it was lost long ago, and besides that, we’re talking about sand and death, that’s what we’re talking about, we’re not talking about you know, vast wealth, we’re talking about sand and death.”]
There’s nothing left in Syria for Trump to steal. No major resources like Afghanistan’s trillion dollar rare earth minerals.
Bolton and Bibzy, those Bobbsey Twins, will not halt air strikes on Syria.
The Kurds can’t call in air strikes so it means US special forces will stay behind to call them in.
Has Trump fired Bolton yet?
Naah, he and Pompeo are Trump’s two “stars” in his show.
[Clip: “We’re pulling out of Syria, but we’re doing it and we won’t be finally pulled out until ISIS is gone.” “How long is the pull-out period?” “It’s going quickly.” “(Inaudible) agreement with Turkey (inaudible). John Bolton said today the withdrawal (inaudible).”
“John Bolton is, right now, over there, as you know. And I have two great stars. And John Bolton is doing a great job, and Mike Pompeo is doing a great job.”]
[”They’re very strong and they work hard.”]
[Clip: “And, as you know, they’re doing things that are very—very good.”]
[Clip: “We’re coming up with some very good results.”]
For Israel. Ugh.
I think I’m gonna throw up.
Please don’t tell me about Trump’s ‘pull outs’ on a full stomach.
Bottom line is that Bolton and Pompeo are smoothing over the US departure, leaving Russia (the one invited by Syria) in the then unambiguous position of parrying ceaseless Israeli strikes against Iranian military facilities protective of Syria.
Israel cannot become Greater Israel between the Two Rivers without America doing the heavy lifting, which is why it’s so important for them to replace Trump asap, not excluding any means.
It’s painful to watch Trump twist in the wind after he makes bold announcements about things America really needs such as getting the US military out of the Mid-East or ending the migrant invasion.
Following such bold announcements by Trump, it’s almost as certain as night following day that Jews in high places will yank Trump’s puppet strings, Trump will flip flop, and the bold announcement will turn into another false hope.
It looks like the puppet masters are still trying to train Trump to come and ask them for their blessing and approval before announcing things. After Trump is trained, the training aids like the Russian Collusion Investigation would be removed.
Obama signed anything the Zionists put in front of him without even asking what it was. That is the kind of puppet behavior the Jews want.
Jared Kushner and Trump borrowed big money from George Soros to buy some of their real estate holdings.
Is the mortgage on the Trump/Kushner real estate empire held by Soros one of the big puppet strings used to yank Trump around? What are the puppet strings and who holds the strings?
I love your Video castigating Bonkers Bolton, Br. Nate, he’s a lunatic and a traitor. I still believe Bibzy Nuttyahoo installed Bonkers as President Trump’s Nat. Security Adviser.
Trump wouldn’t have done it on his own, but he has to fire that traitor. Period.
Now, you can add murderer to his dossier. A suicide bomber detonated an IED that killed both Syrians and a few US troops.
Had all US troops been withdrawn, as Trump had promised, no US soldier would have been killed. Both Bonkers and Nuttyahoo are responsible for these killings. Bonkers must be immediately fired, then prosecuted for his crimes. The same goes for Pompous Pompeo, he, too, is a traitor.
Trump is the President and Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces and must conduct himself as such. Neither Bonkers nor Pompous are authorized to run US foreign policy, only the President has that authority, and that’s Trump. He has the authority to fire these two traitors and recommend their prosecution to the DOJ.
Iran isn’t a threat to anyone, it hasn’t attacked its neighbors in over 230 years like you said, but it won’t hesitate to defend itself, either. Nuttyyahoo and his two puppets are a threat to the entire world, including the US. I doubt very much that this country will attack Iran; after all, Russia and China are the Islamic Republic’s two powerful allies.
If Nuttyahoo wants to attack Iran, he’ll be on his own. We’re not going in with him since we’re not that suicidal. However, he’s too much of a coward to go in alone; so he won’t do it.
Time to hunker down, Br. Nate, the wintry weather’s really socking it to the Midwest, parts of the South, and most of the East Coast.
Erdogan thought he had his 30-day Syrian real estate invasion deal sewn up with Trump, including the transfer of US bases to Turkey, then Trump began to modify the parameters of the pullout. Erdogan’s snub of Bolton wasn’t because he is Bolton, but because Bolton is Trump’s personal National Security Adviser and emissary. In other words, it was a message to Trump.
Al Monitor: Intel: Attack on US troops throws Trump’s Syria plans into chaos
The death of several Americans today in a suicide attack in the Kurdish-held Syrian city of Manbij has thrown another wrench into US plans for a rapid withdrawal from Syria. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack weeks after President Donald Trump touted the group’s alleged defeat as the impetus for his decision to pull US troops out of Syria.
Why it matters: News of the attack further complicates debate inside the Trump administration on the timing for plans to withdraw 2,200 US troops from Syria. In a brief statement, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said, “The President has been fully briefed and we will continue to monitor the ongoing situation in Syria.”
Questions abound: The fallout from the attack, which killed two service members, a Department of Defense civilian and a Pentagon contractor, remains in question. Meanwhile, Turkish media are reporting that a suicide bomber targeted a meeting of US and French troops with Kurdish militants at a Manbij restaurant. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says 16 people died in the blast, including nine civilians.
All eyes on Trump …: Already dealing with the fallout from a weeks-long government shutdown at home, the US president now has to contend with new facts on the ground in Syria. Trump has pledged to cut down the United States’ overseas troop presence, but his Syria policy has drawn fire from the Pentagon and State Department as well as from allies in Congress including Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
Trump previously walked back his 30-day deadline for the pullout, but with the mission having little public support, today’s attack may cause Trump to once again press for a speedy retreat.
… and Erdogan: The attack comes as Turkey-backed Syrian rebels are chomping at the bit to launch a full-scale assault to take back Manbij from the US-backed Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units, which Ankara considers terrorists. Today’s attack right on Turkey’s doorstep may be all the justification Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan needs to act, especially if he gets a tacit green light from a US president eager to disengage from the chaotic conflict.
US residual presence: Even if Trump pivots back toward quickly pulling out of Syria, it doesn’t mean US forces will completely leave the country. As news of the blast began breaking this morning, Army Chief of Staff Mark Milley, tapped by Trump last year to be the Pentagon’s top military officer, indicated today that the United States still had a small pocket of Islamic State fighters left to finish off.
“We’ve got the remnants, a relatively small amount of remnants of [IS] bottled up in a small geographic area and we are determined to finish that off and then hand the battle off to our indigenous partners,” Milley said at an army association breakfast.
[On the extreme opposite side of Syria from Manbij down around Al Bukamal near Iraq, some 250 miles away from the Turkish border. Erdogan wants Manbij to gain a foothold on the the important Syrian Route 4 highway which traverses the Euphrates.
The important route is vital to his neo-Ottoman expansionist dreams of bringing Eastern Syria under Turkish control through its Syrian jihadist/FSA proxy, the National Liberation Front or whatever its called. His idea is to gradually expand the “liberation” of eastern Syria by recruiting from the local populations of the newly occupied territories. — Kj]
IS resurgence: IS has claimed responsibility for the deadly attack but did not make clear whether it was designed to hasten a US withdrawal from the country. [Very suspicious. IS can claim the attack, but they also do so for attacks that they didn’t initiate. IS was entirely inaccurate describing the attack circumstances, claiming the suicide attack struck a patrol, and not the restaurant. - Kj]
The attack will inevitably raise questions about how strong the group remains, and could create public pressure for European countries including France to withdraw if their forces died in the attack. That could give IS some breathing room to regroup.
The White House is showing no inclination to review its analysis of the group’s demise. “[IS] has been defeated,” Vice President Mike Pence insisted today during a visit to the State Department during which he touted a list of the Trump administration’s perceived foreign policy accomplishments.
What’s next: Expect Trump’s Twitter feed to light up at some point soon with condolences for the fallen and next steps in Syria. If Trump pushes for a quick US withdrawal, expect pushback from hawkish Republicans. “To those who lost their lives today in Syria, you were defending America, in my view,” Graham said at an unrelated Senate hearing. “I hope the president will look long and hard at what we’re doing in Syria.”

And make sure to read Kadri Gursel on the limitations of Turkey’s ability to take over from the United States in northern Syria.

Syrianna Analysis: Who attacked the US forces in Syria? (16 January 2019)
A suicide bombing in the US-SDF held #Manbij killed has killed at least 14 people including four American soldiers in the #USA-SDF held Manbij in north #Syria.
The #ISIS-affiliated website, Amaq, claimed an attacker with an explosive vest had struck a foreign military patrol in a suicide attack, but this footage indicates that the explosion happened inside a restaurant called Qasr al Oumara in Manbij.
Syrian War Daily reported that “The Islamic Suicide’s [sic] suicide bomber targeted a restaurant in the city of Manbij, during a meeting between Yekîneyên Parastina Gel (YPG - People’s Protection Units) with officials from the United States and France.
According to reports, four elements of the United States Army were killed and three wounded, as well as around 15 civilians killed and 20 wounded in the explosion. Two elements of the Syrian Democratic Forces’ Manbij Military Council were also reported as killed in the explosion.”
Some people are like dog poop stuck to your shoe you can’t shake off…like Eric Prince, who always has Trump’s ear.
Sputnik: Blackwater Founder Suggests US Should Replace Forces in Syria With Contractors
President Donald Trump announced earlier, in December 2018, that American troops would begin to withdraw from Syria in the coming months.
But this announcement spurred concern that Washington’s Kurdish allies might be put in danger, following Turkish statements about a planned military operation east of the Euphrates.
Blackwater founder Erik Prince has hailed US President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out American troops stationed in Syria during an interview with Fox Business, stating that Washington doesn’t have a “long-term strategic obligation” to remain there and should end its practice of “endless wars”.
At the same time, he noted that it would be wrong to “abandon” American allies there, referring to the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), and suggested that private military contractors could replace US troops to protect them. Prince expressed certainty that without their help, US allies would be “smashed” by Iranian and Syrian forces.
It’s unclear why Prince brought up Damascus and Tehran in the talks, when Washington currently has fears that a planned Turkish military operation east of the Euphrates poses a greater threat to their Kurdish allies.
Following recent talks between Turkish President Erdogan and his American counterpart, the former agreed to establish a 32 kilometre security or buffer zone in northern Syria that would prevent terrorists from attacking Turkey and would protect Kurdish forces.
Prince is the founder of the infamous Blackwater private military company, which has helped US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, but became embroiled in a major scandal in 2007.
At the time, several Blackwater contractors were found guilty of killing 14 Iraqi civilians in Baghdad, drawing harsh criticism against the company.
Sputnik: Gulf States Reportedly Reach Blackwater to Discuss US ‘Arab Force’ Plan in Syria
The Wall Street Journal reported, citing American officials, that the Trump Administration has mulled assembling an Arab force that would replace US troops in Syria.
According to the media outlet, the US plan has been quite popular with founder of the American private security contractor Blackwater, now known as Academi, Erik Prince, who has faced an avalanche of criticism for helping set up private security forces in the United Arab Emirates and Somalia.

The so-called “Merchant of Death” has reportedly said that Arab officials have contacted him to discuss the prospects of assembling a force in Syria; he, however, has decided to wait and see what President Donald Trump would do.
Then Erdogan, aspiring neo-Ottoman real estate mogul, offered Trump to set up his long-planned Turkish military occupation buffer zone inside eastern Syria, and a buffer zone for his buffer zone, and beautiful housing for the Syrians to be constructed by the Turkish state housing authority for Syrian refugees, if America pays for it. And hands over to the Turkish Army all of the US bases in Eastern Syria.
The only problem with the horsetrading between two grandiose real estate ‘barons’ is that the Syrian land Erdogan wants to steal, occupy, and Turkify is sovereign Syrian territory, belonging neither to Trump nor Erdogan. But this kind of deal would make sense to transactional Trump. Isn’t that what the US military is for, to just enforce a different kind of eminent domain?
Turkish Real Estate News (2016): Erdoğan: We Can Build Cities There!
Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced that they could build homes for the Syrians in the region which has been cleared of terrorism.
Turkish building contractors are preparing to take on the responsibility for the refugee issue. Full support has been provided from TOKI and the Turkish real estate sector upon the announcement made by President Erdoğan.
While almost all of the world watches the great crisis of humanity from a distance, Turkish building contractors are ready to assume responsibility. During his visit to Latin America, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan made an announcement to journalists which was “We want to build a city in Syria”. Thereupon, the reactions from the Turkish construction sector has been full of support to the President’s ambitious statement,
“We will finish this in a year.”
We are aiming for leadership
Turkish construction sector is currently in second place behind China, on a global scale. The success of the Turkish real estate sector which is growing at pace and aiming for the leading position in the world, is drawing attention throughout the world.
While foreign investors endeavor to create opportunities to enter into joint ventures with Turkish companies in different markets, many countries are monitoring the Prime Minister’s Office Mass Housing Administration (TOKI) model and the projects of TOKI, and taking the organization as a model for themselves.
A question from one of my business associates. As a Catholic I always preach non-violence, to my Christian and non-Christian friends, but some good points were made recently, and I would value your input.
Question from Julian = In times of war, which we are under, the bible says God would allow for, the execution of the Illuminati.
As Christians we are allowed to defend ourselves, and our country from great evil. If a rapist breaks into your home, and is about to rape your wife, you are allowed to kill him.
The illuminati have broken in, and done far more damage then any serial rapist could do, so can they be executed as well.
This in self-defense, is it not? If not, then the bible is contradicting itself.
This is not an equivocal analogy between a rapist breaking into one’s home and the Illuminati “breaking into” (not sure WHAT?) the political realm, cultural realm? There has always been Antichrist forces “breaking into” the moral norms of various societies.
“Self defense via violence” against the Illuminati would never hold up in ANY court of law, and specifically NOT the law of the Gospel, nor for that matter, the law of the Moses.
The Bible is not contradicting itself at all here. Be careful in how you use ‘bible verses’ dear Dr Scott.
Our weapon is TRUTH, not violence where there is no lawful basis for it. +BN
Consortium News: Bases, Bases, Everywhere … Except in the Pentagon’s Report
January 16, 2019
These installations exist somewhere between light and shadow, writes Nick Turse. While acknowledged as foreign military outposts, they are excluded from the official inventory.
By Nick Turse
Within hours of President Trump’s announcement of a withdrawal of U.S. forces from Syria, equipment at that base was already being inventoried for removal.
And just like that, arguably the most important American garrison in Syria was (maybe) being struck from the Pentagon’s books — except, as it happens, al-Tanf was never actually on the Pentagon’s books.
Opened in 2015 and, until recently, home to hundreds of U.S. troops, it was one of the many military bases that exist somewhere between light and shadow, an acknowledged foreign outpost that somehow never actually made it onto the Pentagon’s official inventory of bases.
Officially, the Department of Defense maintains 4,775 “sites,” spread across all 50 states, eight U.S. territories, and 45 foreign countries.
A total of 514 of these outposts are located overseas, according to the Pentagon’s worldwide property portfolio.
Just to start down a long list, these include bases on the Indian Ocean island of Diego Garcia, in Djibouti on the Horn of Africa, as well as in Peru and Portugal, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom. But the most recent version of that portfolio, issued in early 2018 and known as the Base Structure Report (BSR), doesn’t include any mention of al-Tanf.
Or, for that matter, any other base in Syria. Or Iraq. Or Afghanistan. Or Niger. Or Tunisia. Or Cameroon. Or Somalia.
Or any number of locales where such military outposts are known to exist and even, unlike in Syria, to be expanding.
According to David Vine, author of “Base Nation: How U.S. Military Bases Abroad Harm America and the World,” there could be hundreds of similar off-the-books bases around the world.
“The missing sites are a reflection of the lack of transparency involved in the system of what I still estimate to be around 800 U.S. bases outside the 50 states and Washington, D.C., that have been encircling the globe since World War II,” says Vine, who is also a founding member of the recently established Overseas Base Realignment and Closure Coalition, a group of military analysts from across the ideological spectrum who advocate shrinking the U.S. military’s global “footprint.”
Such off-the-books bases are off the books for a reason. The Pentagon doesn’t want to talk about them.
“I spoke to the press officer who is responsible for the Base Structure Report and she has nothing to add and no one available to discuss further at this time,” Pentagon spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Michelle Baldanza told TomDispatch when asked about the Defense Department’s many mystery bases.
“Undocumented bases are immune to oversight by the public and often even Congress,” Vine explains.
“Bases are a physical manifestation of U.S. foreign and military policy, so off-the-books bases mean the military and executive branch are deciding such policy without public debate, frequently spending hundreds of millions or billions of dollars and potentially getting the U.S. involved in wars and conflicts about which most of the country knows nothing.”
Where Are They?
The Overseas Base Realignment and Closure Coalition notes that the United States possesses up to 95 percent of the world’s foreign military bases, while countries like France, Russia, and the United Kingdom have perhaps 10-20 foreign outposts each. China has just one.
The Department of Defense even boasts that its “locations” include 164 countries. Put another way, it has a military presence of some sort in approximately 84 percent of the nations on this planet — or at least the DoD briefly claimed this.
After TomDispatch inquired about the number on a new webpage designed to tell the Pentagon’s “story” to the general public, it was quickly changed.
“We appreciate your diligence in getting to the bottom of this,” said Lieutenant Colonel Baldanza. “Thanks to your observations, we have updated defense.gov to say ‘more than 160.’”
What the Pentagon still doesn’t say is how it defines a “location.” The number 164 does roughly track with the Department of Defense’s current manpower statistics, which show personnel deployments of varying sizes in 166 “overseas” locales — including some nations with token numbers of U.S. military personnel and others, like Iraq and Syria, where the size of the force was obviously far larger, even if unlisted at the time of the assessment.
(The Pentagon recently claimed that there were 5,200 troops in Iraq and at least 2,000 troops in Syria although that number should now markedly shrink.)
The Defense Department’s “overseas” tally, however, also lists troops in U.S. territories like American Samoa, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Wake Island.
Dozens of soldiers, according to the Pentagon, are also deployed to the country of “Akrotiri” (which is actually a village on the island of Santorini in Greece) and thousands more are based in “unknown” locations.
It’s amazing how many Jews are hooked up with Trump at this link.
The real rulers are the Zionist Jews who control the front men who in turn control the front governments. Obama, Trump, and similar puppet politicians are neck deep in Jews because these politicians are financed, advised, handled, and controlled by Jews.
The Jews Media often drops catch phrases like “Teeth need to be put in the United Nations because it has no power.” That seems to be Jewspeak for “The UN is a Zionist front organization.”
Judges, politicians, and other rulers sometimes cite international law (UN law) as the basis for their rulings, but Jews generally keep the UN in low profile, in the shadows, so that people don’t see the UN for what it really is – a Zionist front organization.
Another piece of Jewspeak frequently heard from the Jews Media is about the FBI. It usually goes something like this - The people who work at the FBI are honest hardworking Americans. The only bad apples are a few corrupt people at the top of the FBI.
Of course, the truth is just the opposite – Deep State Jews control government from top to bottom, from the highest levels all the way down to the lowest levels, especially in secret agencies like the FBI, CIA, NSA.
Zionist Jews operate through front men, front organizations, so that Jews can stay hidden, out of sight, in the dark, behind the curtains, so that their evil deeds appear to be the work of the front men, puppets, and front governments.
Satan offered the kingdoms of this world to Jesus who rejected the offer, but the Jews accepted the offer.
“If President Trump has no interest in a war with Iran he should ask for Bolton’s resignation without delay.” [And Pompeo, too. - Kj]
TruthOut: To Stop Bolton’s Fire and Fury, Fire Bolton
Jon Rainwater [Peace Action], Truthout
January 18, 2019
To Stop Iran’s Bomb, Bomb Iran,” read the headline of a 2015 New York Times op-ed by now National Security Adviser John Bolton.
Writing at the height of nuclear negotiations with Iran, Bolton argued that, “Time is terribly short, but a strike can still succeed.”
Almost four years later, all of Iran’s potential pathways to a bomb remain blocked by the very deal Bolton would have traded for war. But like nonbiodegradable plastic adrift at sea, undeterred by the damage left in its wake, Bolton’s views haven’t changed.
On January 13, 2019, news broke that the National Security Council, at Bolton’s direction, asked the Pentagon for military strike options against Iran.
The request was reportedly in response to a mortar attack launched in September 2018 by an Iraqi Shiite militia aligned with Iran that landed near the US Embassy in Baghdad, hitting an empty lot and causing no injuries or damage.
In other words, Bolton asked the Pentagon to draw up plans for airstrikes over Iran that would start a catastrophic war — all in response to a militia attack with no victims.
Taken on its own, a thoughtful observer might characterize Bolton’s request as a gross overreaction from an overzealous national security adviser. But in the context of this administration’s policies and statements on Iran, it looks more like part of the plan.
Let’s review the lowlights. In the first days of Trump’s presidency, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn ominously announced that the administration was “putting Iran on notice.”
In May 2018, Trump withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement despite Iran’s verifiable compliance, and reimposed the full suite of US sanctions lifted under the agreement.
Last July, Trump authored a late-night tweet threatening Iran with “consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before.”
In August, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo formed the Iran Action Group, a special team tasked with coordinating the administration’s policies for countering the “Iranian threat.”
Earlier this month, Pompeo started an eight-country tour through the Middle East emphasizing the need to counter “the greatest threat of all the Middle East, the Iranian regime.”
Next month, the secretary of state is hosting a summit in Poland focused on “making sure that Iran is not a destabilizing influence.”
Trump has said he wants to negotiate a better nuclear deal, but his administration isn’t pursuing one, and even if it were, Iran has no interest in renegotiating the terms of a multilateral agreement that took years of painstaking and politically fraught negotiations to nail down.
Trump has argued that sanctions will compel Iran to change its behavior, but sanctions have an abysmal track record at changing Iran’s calculus about what it sees as its core interests.
For example, Iran steadily expanded its nuclear enrichment capabilities undeterred by the sanctions ramp-up during the Bush and Obama presidencies.
The growing network of Iran hawks in the administration is surely under no illusions that this latest pressure campaign will bear more fruit than the decades of threats and sanctions that came before it.
But what other motive explains the Trump administration’s behavior? All of the administration’s posturing suggests that war is the endgame. Bolton’s request for strike options should leave no doubt in our minds.
If that’s not the case — if President Trump has no interest in a war with Iran — he should ask for Bolton’s resignation without delay seeing as Bolton’s interest in war is unimpeachable.
If Trump does want a war, he needs to ask Congress to authorize it as the Constitution mandates.
Picking up on Trump’s general disregard for congressional war powers, Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico introduced legislation last year prohibiting the use of funds for military action against Iran without congressional approval.
Legislation like this may prove crucial in preventing a war with Iran, especially given the ever-expanding interpretations of presidential war powers espoused by this administration.
If confirmed, Trump’s nominee for attorney general, William Barr, could help expand those interpretations even further, as he tried to do in the lead-up to the Iraq War when he told President Bush that he had “no doubt” about the president’s authority to invade Iraq without congressional authorization.
However Congress moves to stop this march to war, it should move quickly. The administration’s actions suggest a strategy of provocation.
Most people today still don’t understand the important fact that most Jews look at life fundamentally different than non-Jews.
When Gentiles try to reason with them or explain the things that they do, they usually get nowhere.
Christianity civilized the Western world so altruism would become the guiding moral principle in society. Jews are motivated not by altruistic or ethical principles but in achieving unlimited power and prestige for themselves.
You see the Jewish M.O. over and over again when you look back at history right up through today.
Their very clever and treacherous methods haven’t changed that much. Perhaps one day (hopefully soon) this Jewish behavior can be singled out as a kind of specific pathology, so when their activities come to the fore they can be labeled as “Judaism” or some such nomenclature.
The Jewish mind is clearly diseased as they behave in a manner similar to that of dangerous sociopaths or mentally ill persons.
Part of the solution might be to treat the worst of the Jews much the same way as we do those type of persons, namely removing them from all of society and institutionalizing them with very firm and rigorous discipline to help them develop ethical and moral principles.

David Duke/Mark Dankof - The War on Free Speech Escalates:
The American Arrest of Press TV Anchor Marzieh Hashemi
“An American citizen arrested and Federally detained without legal charges brought forth. What was Marzieh Hashemi’s real offense?
“Allowing free international TV discussion of Israel and 9-11, the Lavon Affair, the Lansky-Ben Gurion-Dimona link to the Kennedy Assassination, the USS Liberty attack, the Pollard spy case, the MEK assassinations of Iranian scientists, and the use of Al-Qaeda and ISIS against Assad?”
LobeLog: Trump On Iran: A Lie That May Lead To War
by Paul R. Pillar
On the first work day of the new year, President Trump held a cabinet meeting that was open to the press and consisted mostly of a rambling monologue by the president about border walls and assorted other topics.
Toward the end of the proceedings, Trump castigated anew the “horrible Iran nuclear deal” and asserted that the agreement “in eight years, gives Iran the legal right to have nuclear weapons.”
No analysis or research by fact checkers is needed to see the bald-faced nature of that lie.
The text of the nuclear deal—formally, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)—explicitly says the opposite. It’s right up front in paragraph iii of the preamble:
“Iran reaffirms that under no circumstances will Iran ever seek, develop or acquire any nuclear weapons.”
This obligation is permanent. It reaffirms Iran’s prior obligation as a party to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty not to acquire nukes.
The JCPOA strengthens this obligation by coupling it with the most intrusive international nuclear monitoring and inspection regime any state has every voluntarily imposed on itself, along with the other severe restrictions that the JCPOA placed on Iranian nuclear activities.
Trump’s falsehood continues a long campaign of misrepresentation by those who have opposed the JCPOA for reasons unrelated to nuclear proliferation.
These reasons have to do with denying domestic political opponents any achievements and aligning with certain regional rivals of Iran who would like to keep it ostracized.
Much of the misrepresentation has been less bald-faced than Trump’s lie. Much of it has used fuzzier language to create the impression that the JCPOA gave Iran something in the nuclear area rather than taking something away.
By inculcating that impression in a broader audience, the opponents of the JCPOA disguise the fundamental illogic of their position.
They claim that they want to prevent an Iranian bomb, and yet they work to destroy the one agreement that has effectively closed all possible paths to such a bomb.
Responses to Donald Trump’s lying on a wide range of topics over the past two years have demonstrated his ability to get a substantial proportion of the American public to believe his lies.
This latest lie about the JCPOA may become part of a widely shared misperception that affects American opinion about policy toward Iran, even if no administration statement repeats it formally and officially.
In that respect, the dynamics of public opinion would resemble those exhibited during the sales campaign for the offensive war against Iraq in 2003.
That campaign emitted so many innuendoes about Iraq and al-Qaeda that a substantial proportion of Americans came to believe that the Iraqi regime had instigated the 9/11 terrorist attack, even when the Bush administration was not specifically asserting that it had.
The danger of Trump’s falsehood about the JCPOA is that the resulting misperception may form the backdrop for a sales campaign by the current administration to launch an offensive war against Iran.
Other misperceptions the administration is cultivating complement Trump’s lie about the JCPOA.
Trump’s national security advisor, John Bolton, states, “we have little doubt that Iran’s leadership is still strategically committed to achieving deliverable nuclear weapons.”
That assertion is contrary to the U.S. intelligence community’s judgment but Bolton has never hesitated to ignore intelligence judgments that do not support his objectives.
The assertion also is contrary to the history of Iran’s nuclear activities.
The Iranian regime clearly did have an interest in nuclear weapons and did technical work to that possible end a couple of decades ago. As a pariah state, the regime kept the nuclear weapons option open for several more years.
When given the opportunity, however, to get out from under nuclear-related sanctions and lose some of the pariahdom if it accepted restrictions and scrutiny that would keep it a non-nuclear weapons state, the Iranian regime took that opportunity by negotiating and signing the JCPOA.
If that bargain collapses, and especially if the Iranians face the threat or reality of military attack and seek a strong deterrent against such attack, then their earlier interest in nuclear weapons may return. But if so, they would be responding directly to actions of the Trump administration, not to any “strategic commitment” of Iran itself.
Bolton recently added to the administration’s upside-down portrayal, in which it describes the knocking down of barriers to an Iranian bomb as if it were a blow against such a bomb rather than a stimulus for one, by appointing an anti-JCPOA hardliner as his “Director for Countering Iranian Weapons of Mass Destruction.”
It is easy to see how the pieces of misrepresentation now fit together.
Iran is portrayed as “strategically committed” to acquire nuclear weapons, which after just a few years the JCPOA gives it the “legal right” to do, but which the Trump administration is ardently working to “counter.”
All that is needed is some triggering incident—perhaps an accidental naval encounter in the Persian Gulf or a Shia militia somewhere firing ordnance at a U.S. facility—to make this mélange of nuclear misperception the core of a public case for launching a new war.
This danger was underscored the other day by a report that Bolton had asked the Pentagon to provide options for a military attack on Iran.
Bolton has made clear for a long time that he would love a war with Iran. So would Trump’s biggest political bankroller, Sheldon Adelson, who even would like to escalate the conflict right away to the nuclear level.
Trump himself, who is no second fiddle to his backers and subordinates in exuding hostility to Iran, probably feels the need to exude even more after taking some lumps from hardline supporters about his confusing policy on Syria and his remark at that same early January cabinet meeting that the Iranians “can do what they want in Syria.”
Then there are all the other reasons why in 2019 the distracting and rallying effects of a new foreign war may seem all the more attractive to Trump, including his sliding poll numbers, the scrutiny of a Democratic-majority House of Representatives, and the upcoming conclusion of the Mueller investigation amid more evidence of campaign collusion with Russia.
Trump’s rampant mendacity poses many serious problems for the republic and will need to be addressed for a long time, even after Trump leaves office.
But for now, priority attention should be given to the lies that are most apt to lead to something as disastrous for the United States as becoming entangled in a new Middle Eastern war.

While I admire and agree with Brother’s views and most of the family’s comments, one thing has to be said, it is not only the white - straight - masculine men they are trying to pussify, but anything they deem to be a threat, let it be an Indian, Chinese, Sri Lankan …or whatever.
They think that we don’t know or the ultimate ONE doesn’t know, they will designate the most intuitive as, like ummm…say ..threat level ‘alpha’ and everything will be done to destroy every aspect of the targeted person’s life (worldly life, that thing is the only thing the Jew loves, so it assumes the same for the target). This is the story behind the T.Is.
Just don’t worry righteous people, everything will be done correctly by the ultimate ONE. No fear or despair. Even fear and despair are to be cherished in the knowingness of the truth.
But the liars and the chameleons are nervous now, they know that we know. Just trust in yourself and the ultimate ONE, for he is so intimate to your self than Jewry or even yourself. Blessings.
