PUTIN: TALK IS CHEAP, ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS

Russian president is a fool if he thinks he can deal with the US in a court of law

Might is right – that’s the only response global terrorists understand

appeasers-header.jpg

Russian president and his officials talked tough in advance of the US-UK-France missile strikes on Syria in the predawn hours today (Apr 14, 2018).

Russia’s ambassador to Lebanon, for example, said on April 11 hat any US missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launch sites targeted, a step which could trigger a major escalation in the Syrian war (see LIKE CUBA, LIKE SYRIA?, Apr 11).

Well, that did not happen, did it? The tripartite US-led coalition fired 103 missiles supposedly at Syrian chemical weapons facilities. And there was not a peep from the Russian air defenses in that country.

Instead, Putin lamely responded in a statement that the US and its allies violated the UN Charter and international law.

Whoopee do! Really? That’s what the Russian president expects Washington to obey Spoken like a modern-day Neville Chamberlain.

When did the international law ever stop global state terrorists, or imperialists, from pursuing their goals? How did it work for Chamberlain against Hitler?

peace-for-our-time-1938-2013.jpg

When the push came to shove, the Russian president blinked. Just like Khrushchev did in 1962.

Just as Putin did when the US installed an anti-Russian regime in Ukraine in Feb 2014. And after the mass murder of the nearly 300 civilians on flight MH17 in July 2014. Which America (e.g., Hillary Clinton) immediately blamed on Russia (again without any proof, like the alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria),

Proof? Only fools look for that. Statesmen act to protect their countries’ interests.

PUTIN: ALL BLUSTER, NO MUSTER

So what are we to conclude from this?

I tell you what: Putin is all bluster and no muster. A wuss. Yet seen as a hero in his country, recently reelected with a huge majority.

Which goes to show us that the American people are not the only naive fools in the world.

Words are cheap; action speaks louder than words. “Speak softly and carry a big stick” (Theodore Roosevelt).

All these truisms have been lost on the Russian president. What’s he going to do with his legal argument about the US breaking international law. Sue the Pentagon? Sue Trump? Sue Netanyahu?

Back in 2014, I wrote a Truth in Media editorial “Is Putin Naive or Coy?”  Now I can answer that question with certainty: He is a fool if he thinks he can deal with the belligerents like the US, Israel, UK or France in a court of law.

Even the former Trump supporters in the US are making minced meat of our bozo at the White House and his shameful turn-about-face on Syria pullout (see the “Conservative pundits are hammering Trump for US-led strikes in Syria”).

Like Yeltsin, Like Putin

More and more, Putin is sounding like Boris Yeltsin, who similarly sold out the Serbs in the 1990s during the US-initiated wars which dismembered Yugoslavia, and brought NATO into the Balkans.

Putin even alluded to that today:

“History will set things straight on Syria for the US, which is already responsible for a chain of “bloody carnage” in other countries, Russian President Putin said today, following the US-led attack on Syria.

And how did the history lesson work out in Yugoslavia? The country no longer exists. That’s how.

I fear the only country the “free world” may be able to count on to free us from the slavery to the Israel-controlled New World Order is China. Ironically, that’s a communist country. So I would not put much weight behind the words of the Chinese president, either.

“Birds of a feather flock together.”

Sad but true.

Basically, we are screwed. For now. Unless some other leader with cojones bigger than Netanyahu’s emerges. That’s the bottom line.


UPDATE APRIL 15, 2018

WHO’S AMERICA’S BOSS? NIKKI OR DONALD? ACTUALLY, NEITHER. IT IS BIBI.

Nikki Haley reverses Trump, says US troops are to stay in Syria

She is “a tsunami of fresh air,” Israel’s PM Netanyahu lauds Haley

The US will not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals are accomplished there, US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, has said. The US currently has over 2,000 troops in Syria and a number of contractors. 

Haley added that the US wants to ensure that chemical weapons are not used in a way that is of risk to US interests, Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) is defeated, and Iran’s actions are monitored.“Be very clear, if we leave, when we leave, it will be because we know that everything is moving forward,” Haley added (click here for more).

Yet less than three weeks ago, Donald Trump, who is ostensibly Nikki’s boss, and the US president, said the opposite:

“We’re knocking the hell out of ISIS. We’ll be coming out of Syria like very soon. Let the other people take care of it now,” Trump said at an Ohio public event. “We are going to get back to our country, where we belong, where we want to be.” (Mar 29, 2018 – see LIKE CUBA, LIKE SYRIA?).

This was not the first time Nikki had contradicted Donald and successfully sabotaged the President’s overtures toward peace. Last July, Trump and Putin met for the first time on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany,. And it was love at first sight.

“I had a tremendous meeting yesterday with President Putin,” Trump said on July 8  while speaking with UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

It must have been. The meeting was scheduled to last 30-40 minutes. It went on for 2:16 hours. Even Melania could not pry her husband away from Putin (see https://wp.me/p3QU1S-2kr).

But Nikki did.

‘We cannot trust Russia & we won’t ever trust Russia’ – she squawked the same day in a CNN interview.

This was the Truth in Media comment the same day (July 8):

Right on cue. Now it remains to be seen who is in charge here – Trump or the NWO foreign policy masters.

If it is the former, Trump should fire Haley immediately for insubordination. It is the President, not the UN ambassador, who makes foreign policy.

And if Trump does not, then well… we’ll also have an answer as to who is in charge, won’t we?”

Less than three weeks later, we got our answer. Haley and her backers won. Trump backed down. And a new round of Russia sanctions was imposed (see Who’s whose flunkey? – Nikki Haley: Another Adherent of the Nothing Creed, Dec 2017).

And Nikki scored for again in December 2017, when Trump announced that the US would recognize Jerusalem as capital of Israel (see ANOTHER DAY WHICH WILL LIVE IN INFAMY).

What dives Nikki such power?

It’s not what. It’s who. And in a word, it is Bibi.

Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, seems to be her real boss and biggest fan.

In early March, Netanyahu told Nikki that she was like a “tsunami of fresh air” at the UN.

“I wanted to tell you how much we appreciate the defense of Israel and the truth that the president and you bring into these cloistered halls that are so damp, you know, with anti-Israel venom,” Netanyahu said Thursday in his meeting with Haley at the United Nations in New York. “It’s not a breath of fresh air, it’s like a tsunami of fresh air.” (from Times of Israel, Mar 8, 2018).

So Haley might as well be recognized as Israel’s ambassador at the UN. And Bibi as America’s real boss. Because the president we currently have at the White House is cow-towing to both of them.

ANOTHER CAVE-IN FOR PUTIN, RUSSIA

Russia extends overflight privileges of US carriers ahead of deadline

On Monday, the tough-talking Nikki Haley, the virtual US president and the unofficial Israel’s ambassador at the UN, announced new and tougher sanctions on Russia. They followed this weekend’s US-UK-French missile attacks on Syria which went unanswered by Russia despite Putin’s bluster and the flurry of his officials’ threats beforehand (see PUTIN: TALK IS CHEAP, ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS, 

What was Russia’s response to these new sanctions?

A cave in. An utter and complete cave-in. Here’s an RT.COM story about it:

Moscow has extended overflight privileges of US carriers flying over Russia, hours before they were due to expire, the US State Department said, noting that it continues working with Moscow to secure “benefits” for US companies.

The US State Department announced that it has been relentlessly working with Moscow to extend an agreement which allows American passenger and cargo planes to fly in Russian airspace, drastically saving time and fuel on long-distance flights. Hours before the overflight agreement was due to expire at 7:59pm (2359 GMT), the State Department confirmed that Russia granted the much-needed extension.

“The Ministry of Transport informed us today that it will extend overflight approvals for US airlines for operations on three routes through October 28, 2018,” the US State Department spokesperson told Sputnik on Tuesday. “The Ministry of Transport extended approvals for all-cargo flights from Asia to Europe through April 20.”

Putin might as well be a card-carrying member of the New World Order. His job is to be a patsy and play a bogey. Because without such “enemies,” the NWO motto – “perpetual war for perpetual commerce” would fail. With such “enemies,” the NWO flourishes.

What a bunch of fools the Russians who voted for him last month are. As are the millions of others around the world who see Putin as a hero who will free the world from the American-Israeli hegemony.

Yeah, right. Like Philippe Pétain saved France from Hitler? Or Gorbachev saved the Soviet Union from the West?

Lest we forget: Putin suggested to Bill Clinton in 2000 that Russia should join NATO.

LIKE CUBA, LIKE SYRIA?

EXCEPT WITH RUSSIA-USA ROLES REVERSED

Nearly 56 years ago, the world was teeter-tottering on the brink of war between the Soviet Union and the United States. The events of October 1962 became known as the Cuba Missile Crisis. In the end, common sense and self-preservation prevailed. And the two superpowers stepped back from the brink of war.

Now the world is facing a similar crisis in Syria. Except that the roles are reversed. Now the US is threatening to strike Syria with its missiles. And Russia is promising to shoot them down and then target the source – the US fleet in the Mediterranean,

What brought that about now that ISIS has been virtually defeated in Syria?

The threat of peace. That’s what has caused all these bellicose actions by the warmongers in the US and Israel.

Two week ago (on March 29), Donald Trump said the US military should get ready to pull out of Syria.

“We’re knocking the hell out of ISIS. We’ll be coming out of Syria like very soon. Let the other people take care of it now,” Trump said at an Ohio public event. “We are going to get back to our country, where we belong, where we want to be.”

Trump 3-29-18.png

And those words sent the war hawks into apoplexy, especially in Israel which has been using the US military and money as a shield against its enemies in the Middle East.

TRUMP’S TURN-ABOUT-FACE

Predictably, there was an alleged “chemical attack” which the lamestream media immediately attributed to the Syrian government. And Trump just as quickly folded his peace rhetoric, and tail between his legs became once again the herald of perpetual wars on behalf of Israel.

 

“Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!”, Trump tweeted today. “You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!”

Wow. Talk about a turn-about-face executed with a military precision by a man who has never served in the military, but one with lots of experience in brown-nosing Benjamin Netanyahu and his war hawks.

Meanwhile, Russia’s president Vladimir Putin has once again appealed for peace and common sense.

The state of world affairs invokes nothing but concerns, the situation in the world is becoming more chaotic,” Putin said today during a Moscow ceremony to welcome new ambassadors to Russia (see https://on.rt.com/9317). “Nevertheless, we still hope that common sense will eventually prevail and international relations will enter a constructive course, the entire world system will become more stable and predictable.”

Well, that’s not exactly what some other Russian officials have said. Russia’s ambassador to Lebanon said that any US missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launch sites targeted, a step which could trigger a major escalation in the Syrian war.

Alexander Zasypkin, in comments broadcast on Tuesday evening, said he was referring to a statement by Russian president Vladimir Putin and the Russian chief-of-staff.

“If there is a strike by the Americans then… the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired,” he told Hezbollah’s al-Manar TV (see https://goo.gl/r3bz4B).

So there you have it. Things are heating up again in Syria not because the ISIS or some other alleged terrorists are threatening the peace process. Warmongers are at it again because Trump said the US would pull out of Syria and “would let other people (like Israel) take care of it now.”

Suddenly, there has been a re-escalation of war in Syria, followed by another Trump flip-flop. Who do you suppose is responsible for that?

HOW THE BRITS, NOT THE RUSSIANS, FIXED THE US ELECTION 2016

…AND HOISTED TRUMP UPON THE WORLD

unnamed 12.45.41 PM Alexander Nix

This is a fascinating story from today’s Guardian (London).

This update includes two “must watch” videos – one by UK’s Channel 4, which did undercover recording to expose the Cambridge Analytica methods of data gathering and mass election manipulations. And another – a firsthand account of the Cambridge Analytica whistleblower about HOW they swung the election Trump’s way.

He went on to describe how political candidates are manipulated.

“They don’t understand because the candidate never, is never involved. He’s told what to do by the campaign team.” The reporter asks if that means the candidate is just a puppet, and Nix replies simply: “Always.”

Execs from firm at heart of Facebook data breach say they used ‘unattributable and untrackable’ ads, according to undercover expose

Senior executives from the firm at the heart of Facebook’s data breach boasted of playing a key role in bringing Donald Trump to power and said they used “unattributable and untrackable” advertising to support their clients in elections, according to an undercover expose.

In secretly recorded conversations, Cambridge Analytica’s CEO, Alexander Nix, claimed he had met Trump “many times”, while another senior member of staff said the firm was behind the “defeat crooked Hillary” advertising campaign.

“We just put information into the bloodstream of the internet and then watch it grow, give it a little push every now and again over time to watch it take shape,” said the executive. “And so this stuff infiltrates the online community, but with no branding, so it’s unattributable, untrackable.”

Caught on camera by an undercover team from Channel 4 News, Nix was also dismissive of Democrats on the House intelligence committee, who had questioned him over Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign.

Senior managers then appeared to suggest that in their work for US clients, there was planned division of work between official campaigns and unaffiliated “political action groups”.

That could be considered coordination – which is not allowed under US election law. The firm has denied any wrongdoing.

Cambridge Analytica said it had a firewall policy in place, signed by all staff and strictly enforced.

The disclosures are the latest to hit Cambridge Analytica, which has been under mounting pressure since Sunday, when the Observer reported the company had unauthorised access to tens of millions of Facebook profiles – and used them to build a political targeting system.

In Tuesday’s second instalment of an undercover investigation by Channel 4 News in association with the Observer, Nix said he had a close working relationship with Trump and claimed Cambridge Analytica was pivotal to his successful campaign.

“We did all the research, all the data, all the analytics, all the targeting. We ran all the digital campaign, the digital campaign, the television campaign and our data informed all the strategy,” he told reporters who were posing as potential clients from Sri Lanka.

The company’s head of data, Alex Tayler, added: “When you think about the fact that Donald Trump lost the popular vote by 3m votes but won the electoral college vote that’s down to the data and the research.

“You did your rallies in the right locations, you moved more people out in those key swing states on election day. That’s how he won the election.”

Another executive, Mark Turnbull, managing director of Cambridge Analytica’s political division, was recorded saying: “He won by 40,000 votes in three states. The margins were tiny.”

Turnbull took credit for one of the most well known and controversial campaigns of the last presidential campaign, organised by the political action group Make America Number 1.

“The brand was ‘Defeat Crooked Hillary’. You’ll remember this of course?” he told the undercover reporter. “The zeros, the OO of crooked were a pair of handcuffs … We made hundreds of different kinds of creative, and we put it online.”

Turnbull said the company sometimes used “proxy organisations”, including charities and activist groups, to help disseminate the messages – and keep the company’s involvement in the background.

When the undercover reporter expressed worries that American authorities might seize on details of a dirty campaign, Nix said the US had no jurisdiction over Cambridge Analytica, even though the company is American and is registered in Delaware.

“I’m absolutely convinced that they have no jurisdiction,” he told the purported client. “So if US authorities came asking for information, they would simply refuse to collaborate. “We’ll say: none of your business.”

Turnbull added. “We don’t talk about our clients.”

Speaking to Channel 4 News before seeing the undercover film, Hillary Clintonsaid: “There was a new kind of campaign that was being run on the other side, that nobody had ever faced before. Because it wasn’t just all about me. It was about how to suppress voters who were inclined to vote for me … when you have a massive propaganda effort to prevent people from thinking straight, because they’re being flooded with false information.”

In the report, Nix also implied that it was possible to mislead authorities by omission, discussing his appearance in front of the House intelligence committee, for its inquiry into possible Russian election meddling.

The Republicans only asked three questions, which took five minutes, he told the reporter. And while the Democrats spent two hours questioning him, he claimed they were so far out of their depths that he didn’t mind responding.

“We have no secrets. They’re politicians, they’re not technical. They don’t understand how it works,” he said, when asked about whether he was forced to testify.

He went on to describe how political candidates are manipulated.

“They don’t understand because the candidate never, is never involved. He’s told what to do by the campaign team.” The reporter asks if that means the candidate is just a puppet, and Nix replies simply: “Always.”

In another exchange, Tayler describes an apparently planned division of spending on the campaign trail, with the candidate organising “positive” messages, with negative attack ads left to the super Pacs, which may engage in unlimited political spending independently of the campaigns.

“As part of it, sometimes you have to separate it from the political campaign itself … campaigns are normally subject to limits about how much money they can raise. Whereas outside groups can raise an unlimited amount.”

“So the campaign will use their finite resources for things like persuasion and mobilisation and then they leave the ‘air war’ they call it, like the negative attack ads to other affiliated groups.”

Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wiley: ‘We spent $1m harvesting millions of Facebook profiles’ – video

This raises questions over whether Cambridge Analytica blurred the boundaries between official campaign groups, which have spending limits, and unaffiliated political action groups or super Pacs.

The latter can spend as much as they want but must not coordinate with the candidate they support.

The Campaign Legal Center has accused Cambridge Analytica over allegations of illegal coordination of this nature.

It has filed evidence with the FEC alleging that the super Pac Make America Number 1 made illegal contributions to Trump’s campaign, “engaging in unlawful coordinated spending by using the common vendor Cambridge Analytica”.

Cambridge Analytica said it had never claimed to have won the election for Donald Trump.

“This is patently absurd. We are proud of the work we did on that campaign, and have spoken in many public forums about what we consider to be our contribution to the campaign.”

It said there was no evidence of coordination between the Make America Number 1 super Pac and the Trump campaign. The company said it was not under investigation.

It has accused the Channel 4 News undercover investigation of grossly misrepresenting how the company conducts its business.

However, speaking to the BBC on Monday, Nix said he had “huge amounts of regret that we undertook this meeting and spoke with a certain amount of hyperbole”.

On Tuesday the website Politico reported that Trump’s 2020 campaign was moving to distance itself from Cambridge Analytica. A campaign official told Politico it had no existing contracts with the firm and no plans to hire it in the future.

HIGH COST SPYING AND BETRAYAL: FACEBOOK DOWN $60 BILLION!

Facebook, Twitter shares tank in light of Cambridge Analytica exposé

Establishment duplicity: When Facebook ‘allowed’ Obama campaign to mine data in 2012, mainstream media, stock market cheered

Facebook and Twitter both took a beating on the stock market today. By early afternoon, Facebook had lost about $60 billion, or over 11% since its closing price on Friday. Twitter dropped by over 10% or $2.4 billion.

Why?

I would like to think it was because I quit Facebook on Feb 3, and Twitter in mid-2017. 🙂

“Why should I waste my time and emotional and intellectual capital on a platform which will eventually self-destruct and collapse?” – I wrote at the time {see I QUIT! – Feb 3, 2018 – https://wp.me/p1jFeo-2sd).

And now, Facebook has started doing just that – “self-destruct and collapse.”

Levity aside, the real reason both stocks are now tanking is actually the same as that which had caused me to quit them both. They sold our their users. They became  establishment whores, spying on and censoring its customers, while serving the interests of government and corporate advertisers.

In short, they killed their golden goose in pursuit of more gold. Greed 101!

This brouhaha broke out after the disclosure last week by a Facebook whistleblower that the firm Trump campaign used for data mining during the 2016 election – Cambridge Analytica – absconded with some 50 million Facebook user profiles while the social media giant looked the other way.

At first, Facebook lamely denied that it had any knowledge of it. But subsequent firsthand testimony by an ex-Facebook insider proved the company was lying and being dishonest in addition to greedy.

Sandy Parakilis, the platform operations manager at Facebook responsible for policing data breaches by third-party software developers between 2011 and 2012, confirmed that such covert data harvesting was routine at the social networking giant.

Parakilas

Parakilis told the Guardian he had warned senior Facebook executives that its lax approach to data protection risked a major breach says numerous companies deployed these techniques – likely affecting hundreds of millions of users – and that Facebook executives told him to look the other way.

“They felt that it was better not to know, Parakilis said. “I found that utterly shocking and horrifying.” (for more, see… https://goo.gl/jixJKi).

WHAT’S GOOD FOR THE GOOSE ISN’T GOOD FOR THE GANDER

‘They were on our side’: Facebook ‘allowed’ Obama campaign to mine data

The Facebook-Twitter debacle also exposed the hypocrisy and duplicity of the liberal mainstream media. As you saw, Parakilis said that harvesting of user data for profit and political gain was common practice at Facebook as far back as 2011-2012.

It turns out that the social media giant had allowed Barack Obama campaign to do the same thing in 2012 as what the Trump campaign is being vilified for.

Carol Davidsen, former director for media analytics for Obama’s 2012 campaign, has poured oil onto the fire by reveling in a series of tweets that Facebook allowed them to do “things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do.”

That reportedly included “suck[ing] out the entire social graph” – an individual’s network of friends on Facebook – in a bid to target more and more potential voters through friends’ friends on social media.

The Republicans only asked three questions, which took five minutes, he told the reporter. And while the Democrats spent two hours questioning him, he claimed they were so far out of their depths that he didn’t mind responding.

“We have no secrets. They’re politicians, they’re not technical. They don’t understand how it works,” he said, when asked about whether he was forced to testify.

He went on to describe how political candidates are manipulated.

“They don’t understand because the candidate never, is never involved. He’s told what to do by the campaign team.” The reporter asks if that means the candidate is just a puppet, and Nix replies simply: “Always.”

In another exchange, Tayler describes an apparently planned division of spending on the campaign trail, with the candidate organising “positive” messages, with negative attack ads left to the super Pacs, which may engage in unlimited political spending independently of the campaigns.

“As part of it, sometimes you have to separate it from the political campaign itself … campaigns are normally subject to limits about how much money they can raise. Whereas outside groups can raise an unlimited amount.”

“So the campaign will use their finite resources for things like persuasion and mobilisation and then they leave the ‘air war’ they call it, like the negative attack ads to other affiliated groups.”

This raises questions over whether Cambridge Analytica blurred the boundaries between official campaign groups, which have spending limits, and unaffiliated political action groups or super Pacs.

The latter can spend as much as they want but must not coordinate with the candidate they support.

The Campaign Legal Center has accused Cambridge Analytica over allegations of illegal coordination of this nature.

It has filed evidence with the FEC alleging that the super Pac Make America Number 1 made illegal contributions to Trump’s campaign, “engaging in unlawful coordinated spending by using the common vendor Cambridge Analytica”.

Cambridge Analytica said it had never claimed to have won the election for Donald Trump.

“This is patently absurd. We are proud of the work we did on that campaign, and have spoken in many public forums about what we consider to be our contribution to the campaign.”

It said there was no evidence of coordination between the Make America Number 1 super Pac and the Trump campaign. The company said it was not under investigation.

It has accused the Channel 4 News undercover investigation of grossly misrepresenting how the company conducts its business.

However, speaking to the BBC on Monday, Nix said he had “huge amounts of regret that we undertook this meeting and spoke with a certain amount of hyperbole”.

On Tuesday the website Politico reported that Trump’s 2020 campaign was moving to distance itself from Cambridge Analytica. A campaign official told Politico it had no existing contracts with the firm and no plans to hire it in the future.

I quit! J’arrête! Lo dejo! Уходить в отставку!

So that’s it. I am quitting Facebook. Ironically, it’s happening a few hours after they had released me from my latest stint in the FB jail. Oh well, at least now more people will find out that I quit and why.

Nine (9) years and three (3) months has been a good ride. I learned a lot. But now it’s time to forget and move on.

facebook-quit-2

NOT ALL “FRIENDS” ARE EQUAL

One thing I learned is that a Facebook “friend” is not necessarily the same as a real life friend. Here’s why not…

As of right now, Feb 3, 2018, I supposedly have 4,630 FB “friends.”  Guess how many bother to reply to my yesterday’s “QUIT FACEBOOK?” post as of this morning?

Three (3) directly. And three (3) through various groups I had founded for a total of six (6). Six out of 4,630! That’s 0.13%. In other words, only one (1) out of 772 of my DB “friends” cares whether or not I stay or go.

And I am not even counting here the 25,656 “friends” I have in the three groups I manage who also had a chance to see my yesterday’s post.

APATHY AND INDIFFERENCE REIGN

So what does that say? To me, it says, that APATHY and INDIFFERENCE reign supreme on Facebook as they do elsewhere in America (see my Nov 2014 election column – DISGUST & APATHY: BIG WINNERS IN 2014 ELECTIONS).

none-of-the-above

Freedom, including the freedom of speech, is disappearing in America faster than a piece of cheese in a rat’s mouth. The US Constitution has become a dead letter, something that both our government and large corporations can trample at will.

FB cover freedom of speech

Yet, most people just shrug and carry on. Hoping for miracles? Or just that “crocodile would eat them last?” as Winston Churchill put it in reference to Hitler appeasers in 1938.

IF ALL OF US QUIT, FACEBOOK WOULD STARVE

As you saw from my yesterday’s post, I have been teeter-tottering on the decision to leave FB for over 4 years now. I was hoping things might get better. Instead, they’ve gotten worse. FB is abusing the trust of its customers. No wonder 60% of Facebook users are spending LESS time now “socializing” on it.

There is one absolute right every customer has: LEAVE. The right to QUIT. And the only thing businesses like FB react to is a loss of user base. Trust me on that. When I ran my own business, I used to consult for top executives of major multinational computer companies.

I am not frustrated or angry. Just pragmatic in how and where I want to spend my time. FB is not the only game in town. So why should I waste my time and emotional and intellectual capital on a platform which will eventually self-destruct and collapse?

Isn’t that also “election meddling?”

I thought the social media have duty to stay out of the political fray and defend everyone’s right to free speech.

But maybe that was in another America, in another century.

FIX FAKEBOOK – 100 ZUCKERBERG CUTOUTS ON CAPITOL HILL

As Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg testified on Capitol Hill for the first time, an unnerving sight greeted visitors outside: an “army” of 100 life-sized cutouts of the CEO.

The display was meant to protest “disinformation” ahead of the tech giant’s congressional hearing. The campaign organized by Avaaz, a global activist group, featured 100 cutouts of Zuckerberg wearing a t-shirt that said “fix Fakebook.”

Putin to US: “STOP ROCKING THE BOAT… CALLED EARTH!”

Putin delivers a sobering message to the US in Russia’s version of the “state of the union” address:

STOP ROCKING THE BOAT… CALLED EARTH!

Putin: “All the things you were trying to prevent through your policies have already happened. You have failed to hold Russia back”

Putin delivered a sobering message to the US and to the world in his annual address to the Federation Assembly

“To those who for the last 15 years have been trying to fan an arms race, achieve unilateral advantage against Russia, impose sanctions, which are illegal from the standpoint of international law and are aimed at holding back the development of our country, including in the military area, I have this to say: All the things you were trying to prevent through your policies have already happened. You have failed to hold Russia back,” Putin said.

“You now have to acknowledge this reality, confirm that everything I said is no bluff – which it isn’t – think for some time, send into retirement the people stuck in the past and incapable of looking into the future, [and] stop rocking the boat that we all ride in and which is called planet Earth,” he said. Russia would be responsive if talked to as an equal partner, Putin added.

Putin unveiled a number of new nuclear weapons that Russia has as added to its arsenal in the last 15 years.

One system is the new Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) called Sarmat, or RS-28. It’s already well-known, but Putin stressed that its increased range allows the missile to reach US territory from Russia via a South Pole route. The US has dozens of interceptor missiles deployed in Alaska on the presumption that Russia’s ICBMs would approach from that direction, which would not be the case with Sarmat.

In fact, the Soviet Union had a missile that could approach the US from any direction. It was not a regular ballistic missile but rather one that put the warhead into low-earth orbit. The warhead would then deorbit when close to its target, thanks to its own engines. However, the R-36orb missiles were scrapped as part of nuclear reduction process.

Putin then went on to weapons systems that were not previously known to the public. One is a yet-to-be-named cruise missile with an almost unlimited range.

The Russian president accused the US of arrogance, saying that it thought that Russia would not be able to recover anytime soon after the collapse of the Soviet Union and that its interests can simply be ignored. One particular move – the withdrawal by George W Bush from the Anti-ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM) in 2002 – resulted in Russia being increasingly surrounded by American assets, which undermined the country’s nuclear deterrence.

Russia has now countered this, according to Putin, who went on to present a number of new systems, some of which don’t yet have names, and which are all meant to counter current and future ABM systems. His speech was accompanied by a series of video clips showing those new systems, partially as footage of tests and partially as computer-generated images showing their capabilities.

‘Speaking softly’: Russia wants negotiations, not confrontation

After his tough talk, the Russian president then offered the US an olive branch.

He stressed that Russia would not need all these new weapons if its legitimate concerns had not been ignored by the US and its allies. “Nobody wanted to talk with us on the core of the problem. Nobody listened to us. Now you listen!” he said.

He suggested that the US abandon its costly and inefficient hostile plans towards Russia and start negotiating a security arrangement which would take Moscow’s interests into account.


ALTZAR’S editorial comment

PUTIN’S SPEECH TO FALL ON DEAF EARS IN THE US?

What Putin is proposing, of course, would make eminent sense to anyone who strives to achieve peace and harmony on this planet. Alas, that does not include anyone among the US power elite Washington or New York. Their perpetual motto has been and still is:

PERPETUAL WAR FOR PERPETUAL COMMERCE

ws_Explosion_1920x1200 (1)

The US powers that be know no other way of life but the use of force and coercion. Chances are, therefore, that Putin’s words will fall on deaf ears in Washington and New York. Warmongers will be warmongers until they self-destruct. Just as Hitler’s Third Reich did over 70 years ago.

On this day in history… March 1, 1966

RUSSIAN PROBE FIRST TO REACH VENUS

Meanwhile, it is an instructive coincidence that on this day in 1996 – yes, 1966 – over three years before the US Apollo mission to the Moon – Venera 3, a Soviet probe launched from Kazakhstan on November 15, 1965, crash-landed on Venus.

Venus is the second planet from the sun and the closest planet to the Earth both in size and distance. Although Venera 3 failed in its mission to measure the Venusian atmosphere, it was the first unmanned spacecraft to reach the surface of another planet. Four years earlier, the U.S. probe Mariner 2 was the first spacecraft to pass close enough to Venus to take scientific measurements of the planet, discovering surface temperatures in excess of 800 degrees Fahrenheit on its surface.

In 1967, Venera 4 succeeded where Venera 3 failed, successfully ejecting several scientific instruments, including a thermometer, a barometer, an atmospheric density gauge, and gas analyzers, into Venus’ atmosphere. Then, in 1970, Venera 7 became the first spacecraft created by humans to soft-land on Venus, successfully sending back images and data for 23 minutes before succumbing to the extremely high temperature and atmospheric pressure found on the planet’s surface.

 

RUSSIA WAS AHEAD OF THE US IN SPACE EXPLORATION EVEN IN THE 1960s

How significant are these Russian achievements from more than half century ago?

Enormously. When the US spacecraft landed on the Moon in 1969, it had traveled an average distance of 239,000 miles.  When Venera 7 soft-landed on Venus a year later, the Russian spacecraft had traveled for 120 days covering the distance of between 25 million and 162 million miles (Venus’ orbit is elliptic, so its distance from the Earth varies greatly).

Assuming that Venera 7 took the shortest possible route, it still means that the Russian spacecraft had traveled at least 105 times (!) farther to reach Venus than the US missions to the Moon.

TOWARD NEW ARMS RACE?

Bet you never learned facts like that in myopic and chauvinistic American schools? And it’s that kind of ignorance that breeds arrogance that can eventually kill us all.

So when Putin says Russia now has capabilities of nuking the US via the South Pole, the American warmongers had better take him seriously.

Thank God there is at least one sane person among the world leaders who have the power to destroy the planet. But will Putin enough? Or will the “big stick” which he revealed today become yet another excuse for more military spending in the US?

My bet is it will be the latter. Trump has already beefed up the Pentagon budget during his first year in office. And Putin has now given him another reason to accelerate the new arms race.

THE AMERICAN DEMO FARCE IS GETTING WORSE

85% of Americans think Congress serves lobbyists, not the people

Well, for the Truth in Media readers and followers of several decades, this is nothing new. But it is the new news base don the latest Associated Press poll.

The overwhelming majority of Americans, irrespective of party allegiance, holds a dismal opinion of Congress, a fresh poll shows. It found 89 percent of Democrats and 82 percent of Republicans disapprove of the legislature’s work.

The attitude to the Republican-controlled legislature does not change much across party lines. The number of Democrats that held an unfavorable view of Congress, 89 percent, is only seven percentage points higher than that of Republicans, at 82 percent.

While Congress, at its current 20 percent approval rating, according to Gallup, is safe from breaking records any time soon, President Donald Trump, with his 38.4 percent job approval rating during his first year in office, became the first president to go below 40 percent in his first year, with his nearest contender in this respect being Bill Clinton, at 49.3 percent.

BACKGROUND STORIES

In November 1996, I penned a column which the WASHINGTON TIMES titled “Demo Farce and the American Century.” In it, I wrote:

Election ’96 was a ‘demo farce!’ The U.S. democracy is turning into a New World Order plutocracy.”

 It was in October 1993 that I first deciphered the New World Order’s MO, and identified the real boss. I called David Rockefeller the “Big Chesse” at the time.

“David Rockefeller, the ‘Sir’ in the Milosevic-Eagleburger conversation (see below), is sort of Screen Shot 2015-01-01 at 1.32.54 PMthe ‘Big Cheese,’ the grand patriarch of the American foreign policy, who ‘owns’ people around him. Using the CFR and the TLC as instruments of power, Rockefeller and his associates have nearly all the political and media bases covered. In the end, it does not matter whether Republicans or the Democrats win. Either way, it will be the (Rockefeller) ‘insiders’ who will run the show in Washington. (A quote from “Plutocracy Is Alive and Well in America,” Truth in Media, Nov 1993)

Four years later, I issued this warning about the oligarchs like Rockefeller, Soros and others destroying the middle class and creating a new social order consisting only of have’s and have not’s:

Nowhere is this (class difference) more pronounced than in the U.S. This is where the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and the Great American Divide between the relative ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’ has been growing wider and deeper in the last 30 years.”

That’s what this writer said almost 22 years ago – in a March 9, 1997 WASHINGTON TIMES column, titled “Plutocrats of the New World Orderhttp://www.truthinmedia.org/Columns/Plutocrats%20of%20NWO.html

… and again about a year later…

The Great American Divide Widens – http://www.truthinmedia.org/Bulletins/tim98-1-1.html (Jan 1998)

In November 1996, I penned a column which the WASHINGTON TIMES titled “Demo Farce and the American Century.” In it, I wrote:

Election ’96 was a ‘demo farce!’ The U.S. democracy is turning into a New World Order plutocracy.”

Anybody but Democrat Republican pig trough

REVERSE RACISM OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER “ELITE” IS ALIVE AND WELL

NOW IT IS THE WHITE CHRISTIANS WHO ARE BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST

Europe: Too many happy white people in Hungarian town

South Africa: New (black) president threatens whites with “expropriation without compensation”

U.S.: At Harvard University, whites make up less than a quarter of the student population, yet make up more than 70% of the US population

“Multiculturalism” is one of the main mantras of the New World Order “elite.” We see and hear it being heralded everywhere around the world as “goodness.”  The European migrant crisis of 2015 is a case in point. Because it will supposedly make Europe more multicultural and tolerant.

In reality, “multiculturalism” is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It is a thinly veiled reverse racism.  In the past, discrimination against the White Christians was done more subtly. Now it has become quite over.

For example…

EUROPE: “TOO MANY HAPPY WHITE PEOPLE” IN HUNGARY

A Hungarian city’s bid to become the European Union’s next “Capital of Culture” was allegedly rejected by EU officials because its video entry showed too many smiling, dancing, white Christians, the city’s mayor says.

Székesfehérvár, Hungary’s ninth-largest city, submitted a short video as part of its entry for the 2023 European Capitals of Culture contest, a competition designed to “celebrate the cultural features Europeans share.” Featuring folk dancers, young couples, mothers, babies and even two elderly gentlemen playing chess in a park, the video was rejected. The EU panel of “independent experts in the field of culture” felt it had too many happy white people and not enough migrants, the city’s mayor Dr András Cser-Palkovics has claimed.

Speaking at a press conference after the panel’s ruling, Cser-Palkovics said that his city’s entry never received a fair hearing, and that the panel’s decision was purely political.

According to Cser-Palkovics, one member of the jury of “experts,” whom he identified as a Belgian politician, strongly disapproved of the promotional video, calling it a “propaganda film for white Christian Europe” in which “everyone is white, happy and dancing in the streets.”

He said that the panel criticized the film for leaving out “the poor and migrants” while having too many “crosses and churches.”

SOUTH AFRICA: NEW (BLACK) PRESIDENT THREATENS WHITES WITH “EXPROPRIATION WITHOUT COMPENSATION”

South Africa’s new president, Cyril Ramaphosa, has pledged to return the lands owned by white farmers since the 1600s to the black citizens of the country.

The government plans to accelerate land redistribution through expropriation without compensation.

“The expropriation of land without compensation is envisaged as one of the measures that we will use to accelerate the redistribution of land to black South Africans,” said Ramaphosa, who was sworn into office to succeed Jacob Zuma as president last week.

REVERSE RACISM AT US COLLEGES

U.S.: At Harvard University, whites make up less than a quarter of the student population, yet make up more than 70% of the US population

This has led to censorship, intolerance, violence, and the kind of reverse racism that one only talked about in hushed tones around the water cooler. They have become hotbeds of the kind of intolerance and fanatic fascist behavior that they claim the right falls for.

The brainwashing is so intense now that many of these students aren’t so easily swayed back to the world of the living, breathing, hard-working Americans.

REVERSE RACISM IS ALIVE AND WELL

I could go on. But you get the picture. I called such reverse racism a “dictatorship of minorities” in my WASHINGTON TIMES Aug 1997 column DANCING ‘ROUND THE GOLDEN CALF (Dumbing Down of Ameirca – my title of it):

“The same kinds of people invented the “dictatorship of the proletariat,” and applied it to the unsuspecting Russians. Now, they are trying to ram a “dictatorship of the minorities” down the naive Americans’ throats.”

Don’t get me wrong. Racism of any kind is unacceptable. Because action begets reaction.

The shortsighted “liberals,” who are among the most INTOLERANT segments of our population, don’t realize that they brought the wrath of Donald Trump and some of his bigoted rightwing followers on themselves – by trying to ram their “multicultural” and other reverse racism policies down the throats of the majority of the population.

As a result, American is now more polarized than it has been in over half a century. The only peaceful way forward is to abandon racism of any kind. Which includes the kind of  “multiculturalism” which banishes the “happy white Christians” in Hungary, for example. Or one which wants to expropriate land in South Africa without compensation. Or one which punishes the white student college applicants in America because of the color of their skin.

TRUMP’S GAFFES: JUST IN JANUARY

TRUMP’S BUMBLING COMMENTS KICK OFF NEW YEAR AND DOMINATE HIS FIRST ANNIVERSARY AS PRESIDENT

JAN 7, 2018

US president becomes laughing stock of the world

UNRAVELING OF A MEGALOMANIC, NARCISSISTIC, SCHIZOPHRENIC PRESIDENT WHO TRUMPS HIMSELF

Trump: I am “a very stable genius”

The controversial book (Fire and Fury) did not expose a megalomanic, narcissistic, schizophrenic president to the world. Donald Trump did it himself with his own words:

“I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!” (excerpt from a Trump tweet Jan 6, 2018)

“I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!” (excerpt from a Trump tweet Jan 6, 2018 – Trump: I’m a ‘very stable genius’ – http://cnn.it/2F74uia).

 

In the last 50 years…

And with those words, Trump launched himself into immortality. Never before has America has a president so full of himself, so shallow, so insecure, so immature.

“They all say, ‘He is like a child,’ and what they mean by that is he has a need for immediate gratification,” the author of the book Fire and Fury, Michael Wolff, told NBC on Friday. “It’s all about him.”

Ironically, Trump posted those “very stable genius” words on Epiphany (Jan 6). And now, the whole world can experience an epiphany about who and what Trump really is.

  • We’ve had crooks in the White House (Nixon).
  • We’ve had clumsy klutzes (Ford).
  • We’ve had peanut farmers who cost us a valuable ally (Carter-Iran).
  • We’ve had actors who read their lines to perfection (Reagan).
  • We’ve had wimps (Bush Sr).
  • We’ve had draft-dodgers, liars and sex offenders (Clinton).
  • We’ve had more liars and cheaters (Bush Jr – 9/11, WMD)
  • We’ve had crooks galore (Obama).
But never before have we had a megalomanic, narcissistic, schizophrenic president who has now become the laughing stock of the world.

TRUMP’S “DAMAGE CONTROL” (i.e., LYING AND DENYING) FAILES TO STEM GLOBAL OUTRAGE OVER HIS “SHITHOLE” REMARK

Donald Trump has been branded a shocking and shameful racist after it was credibly reported he had described African nations, as well as Haiti and El Salvador as “shitholes” and questioned why so many of their citizens had ever been permitted to enter America.

US diplomats around the world were summoned for formal reproach, amid global shock that such crude remarks could ever be made in a semi-public meeting by the president of America.

In a strongly-worded statement, the UN said it was impossible to describe his remarks as anything other than racist, while the Vatican decried Trump’s words as “particularly harsh and offensive”.

The 55-nation African Union said the remarks were “clearly racist”.

Trump initially allowed reported accounts of his comments to go unchallenged, but went into damage limitation mode on Friday, insisting he had not used derogatory words – but admitting that the language he had used at a meeting with Senators on immigration was “tough”.

But the democratic senator Dick Durbin – who was present at the meeting with Trump on Thursday – insisted that the reports were entirely accurate. For more, see… https://goo.gl/19CAgW

TRUMP GETS A CLEAN BILL OF MENTAL HEALTH FROM HIS WHITE HOUSE NAVY DOCTOR, NOT A PSYCHIATRIST

ALTZAR: Only someone whose mental health is in question would request a test to prove that he is okay.

Normal people would just shrug off such innuenda and see to it that their actions would prove the accusers wrong.

Only someone who wants to manage the outcome would hire a Navy doctor whose salary he pays to be the judge of that.

Was this doctor a qualified psychiatrist? No.

Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson graduated from the medical school at the University of Texas in 1995. From there, he went to the Portsmouth Naval Medical Center,

Did the tests the doctor performed have anything to do with diagnosing a psychopathic behavior? Not that we know of.

Yet Trump paraded today his White House doctor, this Rear Admiral, who is trained as an emergency doctor, as the conclusive authority on the president’s mental health.

You would think that requesting such an assessment by a non-psychiatric professional alone would be yet another example of Trump’s psychopathic behavior?

Why does that matter?

Because Duke University Medical Center professor of psychiatry Dr. Jonathan Davidson published a study that reviewed biographical sources for the first 37 presidents (from 1776 to 1974).

Expert psychiatrists, unlike this Navy White House doctor, concluded that half suffered from mental illness, 27 percent while still in office.

Meanwhile, back to today’s news story…

Donald Trump has been deemed fit to serve as the president, the White House doctor announced after the US commander in chief voluntarily underwent a cognitive test to put questions about his mental health to rest.

The cognitive exam was Trump’s own idea. Jackson initially had “no intention” of including such a test in the US president’s first annual physical checkup since it’s not part of the routine procedure. However, Trump, according to Jackson, specifically asked to be screened for impairments such as Alzheimer’s.

Psychopathy Checklist

Here’s an armchair psychiatrist test for you. The following are some of the traits of a psychopath. On my checklist Trump fits 13 of 20. What about you?

  1. 1. GLIB and SUPERFICIAL CHARM — The tendency to be smooth, engaging, charming, slick, and verbally facile. Psychopathic charm is not in the least shy, self-conscious, or afraid to say anything.  A psychopath never gets tongue-tied. They have freed themselves from the social conventions about taking turns in talking, for example.
    2. GRANDIOSE SELF-WORTH — A grossly inflated view of one’s abilities and self-worth, self-assured, opinionated, cocky, a braggart. Psychopaths are arrogant people who believe they are superior human beings.
    3. NEED FOR STIMULATION or PRONENESS TO BOREDOM — An excessive need for novel, thrilling, and exciting stimulation; taking chances and doing things that are risky. Psychopaths often have low self-discipline in carrying tasks through to completion because they get bored easily. They fail to work at the same job for any length of time, for example, or to finish tasks that they consider dull or routine.
    4. PATHOLOGICAL LYING — Can be moderate or high; in moderate form, they will be shrewd, crafty, cunning, sly, and clever; in extreme form, they will be deceptive, deceitful, underhanded, unscrupulous, manipulative, and dishonest.
    5. CONNING AND MANIPULATIVENESS — The use of deceit and deception to cheat, con, or defraud others for personal gain; distinguished from Item #4 in the degree to which exploitation and callous ruthlessness is present, as reflected in a lack of concern for the feelings and suffering of one’s victims.
    6. LACK OF REMORSE OR GUILT — A lack of feelings or concern for the losses, pain, and suffering of victims; a tendency to be unconcerned, dispassionate, cold-hearted, and non-empathic. This item is usually demonstrated by a disdain for one’s victims.
    7. SHALLOW AFFECT — Emotional poverty or a limited range or depth of feelings; interpersonal coldness in spite of signs of open gregariousness.
    8. CALLOUSNESS and LACK OF EMPATHY — A lack of feelings toward people in general; cold, contemptuous, inconsiderate, and tactless.
    9. POOR BEHAVIORAL CONTROLS — Expressions of irritability, annoyance, impatience, threats, aggression, and verbal abuse; inadequate control of anger and temper; acting hastily.
    10. PROMISCUOUS SEXUAL BEHAVIOR — A variety of brief, superficial relations, numerous affairs, and an indiscriminate selection of sexual partners; the maintenance of several relationships at the same time; a history of attempts to sexually coerce others into sexual activity or taking great pride at discussing sexual exploits or conquests.
    11. IMPULSIVITY — The occurrence of behaviors that are unpremeditated and lack reflection or planning; inability to resist temptation, frustrations, and urges; a lack of deliberation without considering the consequences; foolhardy, rash, unpredictable, erratic, and reckless.
    12. IRRESPONSIBILITY — Repeated failure to fulfill or honor obligations and commitments; such as not paying bills, defaulting on loans, performing sloppy work, being absent or late to work, failing to honor contractual agreements.
    13. FAILURE TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR OWN ACTIONS — A failure to accept responsibility for one’s actions reflected in low conscientiousness, an absence of dutifulness, antagonistic manipulation, denial of responsibility, and an effort to manipulate others through this denial.

TRUMP’S APPROVAL RATING LOWEST OF ANY PRESIDENT

A Gallup survey found that Trump reaches the first anniversary of his inauguration with the lowest average approval rating of any elected president in his first year.

That poll showed that Trump has averaged just a 39% approval rating since his inauguration. The previous low was held by Bill Clinton, whose first-year average was 10 points higher than Trump’s, at 49%.

GLOBAL CONFIDENCE IN US LEADERSHIP ALSO HITS A NEW LOW

Global confidence in US leadership has also fallen to a new low, and the country now ranks below China in worldwide approval ratings, according to a new Gallup poll.

The survey of opinion in 134 countries showed a record collapse in approval for the US role in the world, from 48% under Obama to 30% after one year of Donald Trump – the lowest level Gallup has recorded since beginning its global leadership poll over a decade ago.

Marking the first year of Trump’s presidency

D’EVOLUTION

DER SPIEGEL (Mirror) is a German weekly news magazine published in Hamburg. It is one of Europe’s largest publications of its kind, with a weekly circulation of 840,000.

Devolution, de-evolution, or backward evolution – is the notion that species can revert to supposedly more primitive forms over time.

The current cover of DER SPIEGEL magazine was used as basis for this D’EVOLUTION image. DER SPIEGEL came up with the artwork, the Truth in media the headline.

TRUMP’S PRESIDENCY WAS EFFECTIVELY OVER BY LATE JULY WHEN HE SIGNED THE NEW RUSSIA SANCTIONS BILL

From then on, he was just another patsy of the Deep State or New World Order, if you prefer.

Here are some milestones from my posts in the first year of Trump’s presidency. What started as a great promise to “Make America Great Again,” quickly dissolved into a string of broken promises.

The first of those was Trump’s backing away from his vow to prosecute Hillary. Which was the reason I voted for him. It took Trump only two weeks to make me regret that vote. I have been regretting it nearly every day since.

Trump’s presidency was virtually over by the end of July when he buckled under to the pressure of Russia’s enemies in Congress and signed the new sanctions bill “against his better judgment.”

From then on, the man who promised to “drain the swamp” in DC became just another reptile in it.

Trump proved it again on Dec 6, when he cow-towed to pro-Israel lobby and recognized Jerusalem as its capital – a move condemned by a vast majority of the world community (the UN vote against it was 128-9).

No wonder the recent poll has shown that Trump’s approval rating is the lowest of any president after the first year in office. Even the lowly, and later thoroughly disgraced, Bill Clinton scored 10 points higher than Trump.

Anybody but Democrat Republican pig trough

So it goes… I hang my head in shame. Because I allowed Don the Con to con me, too, even though I called him a “Trojan Horse” in a Feb 2016 editorial. It was the first time EVER that I had voted for a Democratic or Republican candidate.

Mea culpa, mea ultima culpa.

TRUMP’S 757: ALL GARISHNESS MONEY CAN BUY

Even before he became president, Trump’s ostentatious custom-fitted private jet – a Boeing 757-200 which reportedly cost around $100 million – was referred to as “Trump Force One.”

Take a video tour of it by Amanda Miller, one of Trump’s Apprentices, as shown on Trump’s Youtube Channel.

TRUMP’S FLYING HOME: EXTERIOR VIEW

AND NOW, HERE’S A CHAPTER FROM TRUMP’S AVIATION EXPERIENCES THE PRESIDENT MIGHT PREFER TO FORGET…

TRUMP AND KINGDOM OF GOD

“It’s easier for a camel to go through an eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God” (Bible verse, Matthew 19:24)

The other night, Elizabeth and I were watching on PBS an episode from season 2 of an excellent British series VICTORIA. At one point, the then British PM, Sir Robert Peel, leader of the Conservative Party, uses this Bible verse when trying to dissuade the Queen from one of her ideas.

donald-trump-bible-rich man

Immediately, I had this image in my mind of Trump’s lavish opulence which he so garishly flaunts. I thought it was apt to create it for the first anniversary of his presidency.

And on that note, we can put a period at the end of Trump’s first year in office.

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE NOTHING PHILOSOPHY, II

Who’s whose flunkey?

NIKKI HALEY: ANOTHER ADHERENT OF THE NOTHING CREED

Future Secretary of State? Like Albright, Like Haley… Minstrels of Hate to Get Their Wars?

Nikki Haley a.k.a. Nimrata Randhawa, the Trump’s UN ambassador, fits the profile of a New World Order globalist flunkey to a tooth. She has changed her name. She has changed her religion.

There is nothing people like that would not do to appease and please their globalist masters. Because they believe in nothing. Except in  money and power.

Here’s my Dec 29, 1996 WASHINGTON TIMES column on that very topic:

THE NOTHING PHILOSOPHY the-nothing-philosophy
of the New World Order
By Bob Djurdjevic 

“Close to Clinton… Believes in Nothing!” – https://wp.me/p3QU1S-1Ta

LIKE ALBRIGHT, LIKE HALEY

Like Madeleine Albright, for example, a.k.a. Madeleine Korbel, Bill Clinton secretary of state, who did everything she could to hide and deny her Jewish roots. Like Nikki – Nimrata Randhawa – “Madam Halfbright,” as this writer had dubbed Albright in the 1990s, was also appointed by Clinton as the UN ambassador before her secretary of state job.

So we are probably looking here at Nikki – Nimrata Randhawa – as the next US secretary of state. If Nikki keeps up his obsequious pro-Zionist behavior and fiery anti-Russia rhetoric, and if the world affairs unfold according to the New World Order/Zionist plans.

Obedient dogs get bigger bones. Madeleine even got her own war (see “Madeleine’s War” – NATO’s bombing of Serbia, 1999 – https://www.truthinmedia.org/Kosovo/War/day55.html).

Nikki Haley has already shown her willingness to bark on her masters’ command, even at her own boss. Check out this Truth in Media report about the first meeting between Trump and Putin last July (EVEN MELANIA COULD NOT BREAK UP THE TRUMP-PUTIN BONDING = But will Nikki Haley do it? – https://wp.me/p3QU1S-2kr).

“Even Melania Trump could not pry her husband away from Putin… The meeting was scheduled to last 30-40 minutes. It went on for 2:16 hours.”

Putin Trump 7-07-17

And that was BAD NEWS for the New World Order chieftains and the Zionists who are trying to drive a wedge between the US and Russia.

Enter Nikki Haley. Here’s what I said about that back in July:

“Now let’s sit back and watch how the lamestream media and other warmongers among the New World Order crowd try to derail this rapprochement between the U.S. and Russia at presidential levels. Including those whom Trump had appointed to their jobs, such as the UN ambassador Nikki Haley.

‘We cannot trust Russia & we won’t ever trust Russia’ – she has already squawked today in a CNN interview.

Right on cue. Now it remains to be seen who is in charge here – Trump or the NWO foreign policy masters.

If it is the former, Trump should fire Haley immediately for insubordination. It is the President, not the UN ambassador, who makes foreign policy.

And if Trump does not, then well… we’ll also have an answer as to who is in charge, won’t we?”

Less than three weeks later, we got our answer. Haley and her backers won. Trump backed down.

The new harsh anti-Russian sanctions were passed by both the House and the Senate. Trump buckled and signed them “despite his better judgment” (see A SAD SURRENDER: TRUMP SIGNS THE RUSSIA SANCTIONS BILL – July 29, 2017 – https://wp.me/p3QU1S-2sR).

At the time, I said that Trump’s presidency was now over for all intents and purposes. Because from then on, like a trained dog, he would be barking only when told to do so by his New World Order and Zionist handlers. His December 6 Jerusalem decision was just another example of it.

U.S. “WILL BE TAKING NAMES,” NIKKI HALEY THREATENS THE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY AHEAD THE VOTE ON JERUSALEM

Nikki Haley a.k.a. Nimrata Randhawa, Israel’s… err… US ambassador to the United Nations tweeted yesterday that that Washington “will be taking names” of those “criticizing our choice” on Jerusalem during Thursday’s vote by the General Assembly.

‘I will report to Trump who votes against US Jerusalem decision’ – Haley later said in a threatening letter to UN members.
On Monday, the US was the only state out of the 15 members of the United Nations Security Council to use its veto power to block a resolution that called on all states to refrain from establishing diplomatic missions in Jerusalem. The US mission then called the move “an insult,” saying that the organization is “doing more harm than good in addressing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

UPDATE 2, DEC 20, 2017

As low as it gets…

TRUMP TIES US HUMANITARIAN AID TO JERUSALEM VOTE AT THE UN

New Face of US “Humanitarianism” = Political Blackmail

Today, Donald Trump stooped to a new low, even for this multi-billionaire. He showed that he has no heart, only a wallet in its place.

Trump threatened today to cut aid to UN member states who vote against the US at the upcoming UN General Assembly on the issue of Washington’s Jerusalem move. He said the US will save “billions” in the process.

On Tuesday, the US envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, sent a warning letter to the member states, saying the US president will take the voting choices on his landmark Jerusalem decision “personally.”

“The President will be watching this vote carefully and has requested I report back on those who voted against us,” Haley stated in the letter.

Washington “will be taking names,” Haley tweeted earlier.

For more, see… https://on.rt.com/8v9z


EDITORIAL COMMENT

ALTZAR: Take a look at Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner in the back row of this photo taken at today’s White House cabinet meeting. This Zionist is positively GLOATING about Trump’s threat to the UN.


UPDATE DEC 22, 2017

LOVE OF MONEY – ROOT OF ALL KINDS OF EVIL

As self-professed “Christians,” Nikki-Nimrata and her boss, Donald Trump, should contemplate how their actions and words fit in with this biblical advice:

“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.” (1 Timothy 6:10 )

The Good Book adds, “some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”

Trump Haley.png

That would be you  – Donald Trump, and you – Nikki-Nimrata.

No wonder you were humiliated by a resounding United Nations condemnation of your Jerusalem decision. Your UN-CHRISTIAN (!) financial blackmail backfired.

So YOU, along with Israel and the few international toadies who also worship money like yourselves, are the new outcasts of the world community.

See what happens when you “wander from the faith?” You get “pierced… with many griefs.”


UPDATE DEC 21, 2017

UN Vote on Jerusalem

US AND ISRAEL: CONDEMNED AND ISOLATED

Trump’s threat did not work. 128 countries voted today at the General Assembly in favor of UN call for US to withdraw Jerusalem decision. 9 voted against the UN resolution and 35 nations abstained (see the vote board).

Turkey’s Foreign Minister praised the decision after the vote, saying, that it “once again showed that dignity and sovereignty are not for sale.”

Bottom line?

The US and Israel are now as isolated from the international community as they have ever been.

AMERICA’S “DIRTY WARS”

A Truth in Media editorial comment Re. “WIRED” MAGAZINE UNCOVERS PROOF THE U.S. HELPED ARM ISIS REBELS

LIKE REAGAN, LIKE CLINTON, LIKE OBAMA, LIKE BUSH’S: THEY ALL WAGED “DIRTY WARS”

I titled the above report “OBAMA’S (AND SAUDIS’) DIRTY WAR.” That’s because the blatant lying to, and the deception of, the American people happened on Obama’s watch and on his orders (2013-2017). But this is by no means an exception.

I remember covering an almost identical story in the mid-1990s in Bosnia. Only this time the Liar-in-Chief at the White House was Bill Clinton. And the arms were illicitly shipped to the Bosnian Muslims via various circuitous routes, including Saudi Arabia and Argentina.

Some of them even included Iran, a country with which the US has had no diplomatic relations since 1980.

On Apr 5, 1996, the Los Angeles Times revealed that Bill Clinton “directly participated” in a decision to let Iran covertly supply arms to the Bosnian Muslims from early 1994 through January 1996 (yes, even as the American troops were being deployed in Bosnia!?).

(See Truth in Media report “AYATOLLAH KLINTONMEINI,” Apr 1996 – https://www.truthinmedia.org/Bulletins/tim96-04a.html).

And the Argentine newspaper, the Clarin (www.clarin.com), reported in its Oct 2, 1998 edition that illegal arms sales to the Bosnian Muslims via Croatia took place in 1993-1995.

5 US presidents

REPUBLICANS’ “DIRTY WARS”

Nor is it just the Democratic presidents who have lied and deceived the American people to cover up their “dirty wars” overseas.

In the 1980s, Ronald Reagan was also caught redhanded using Iranian weapons to arm the Contra rebels in Central America.

Reagan’s VP and successor, George H. Bush, lured Saddam Hussein into invading Kuwait, using it then as a pretext to start the 1st Gulf War. Bush Sr. also helped fuel the wars that destroyed the country of Yugoslavia and brought Islamic Jihad into Europe.

And, of course, George W. Bush’s failed deception about the supposed WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction) in Saddam Hussein’s Iraq has become legendary. It would be a real spoof were it not for the hundreds of thousands of lives that Bush’s deception had cost, including 4,424 American troops.

UNHEEDED WARNINGS ABOUT GROWING PLUTOCRACY IN AMERICA

“Plutocracy is alive and well in America,” (Truth in Media, Nov 1993)

AND IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE IF WE DO NOTHING

Nearly a quarter century ago, I used for the first time the term “plutocracy” to describe the system we have here in America.

What is plutocracy?

The rule of a few over the many. Or as Wikipedia puts it, “it is a form of oligarchy and defines a society ruled or controlled by the small minority of the wealthiest citizens.”

Four years later, I repeated the warning that the oligarchs are destroying the middle class and creating a new social order consisting only of have’s and have not’s:

Nowhere is this (class difference) more pronounced than in the U.S. This is where the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and the Great American Divide between the relative ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’ has been growing wider and deeper in the last 30 years.”

That’s what this writer said over 20 years ago – in his March 9, 1997 WASHINGTON TIMES column, titled “Plutocrats of the New World Orderhttp://www.truthinmedia.org/Columns/Plutocrats%20of%20NWO.html

… and again about a year later…

The Great American Divide Widens –

IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE: UNHEEDED WARNINGS ABOUT PLUTOCRACY IN AMERICA

So what have we done about it since these warnings were published.

In a word – NOTHING. Apathy and indifference – have been trademark of American voters and citizens.

So no wonder every year we are becoming a little more enslaved by the plutocratic oligarchs. And in some years, such as right now, they tighten the nooses around our necks even more.

Check out this article in the Guardian’s interview with Bernie Sanders:

UPCOMING TAX CUTS ARE BARELY DISGUISED REWARD FOR BILLIONAIRE DONORS – https://goo.gl/Nn2aQZ

The Vermont senator tells the Guardian why the tax bill – which could become law next week – is the result of 40 years’ scheming by the Kochs and others

THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK

ALTZAR: As you read this Guardian article, it is important to be reminded that it is a left-wing “liberal” newspaper which had steadfastly supported Hillary Clinton in 2016.

It is also important to be reminded that Bernie Sanders, who is now casting stones at the Republicans, seems to have forgotten that he also ended up supporting last year that Queen of Greed – Hillary Clinton – who had raised records amount of money from the Wall Street and other international billionaires. As had her predecessor – Obama.

So as this writer has been saying for decades, both Democrats and the Republicans are working for the same rich oligarchs and AGAINST the interests of the American people.

Back to the definition of PLUTOCRACY.

But since we, the American people, keep voting our slave masters in election-after-election, all these warnings notwithstanding, we can only blame ourselves for the consequences.

From Feb 24, 2016 – IS TRUMP A TROJAN HORSE?

NEW WORLD ORDER CREED FITS TRUMP TO A TEE

The New World Order Creed fits Trump to a tee.

Here’s what I wrote on the topic of New World Order “religion” in my Washington Times column “CHRISTIANITY UNDER SIEGE, TOWARD – A ONE WORLD RELIGION” – Jan 1998 – http://www.truthinmedia.org/Columns/christianity_under_siege.html:

Their creed is ‘I believe in nothing!’ Their crest: The Almighty Dollar. Their object of worship: The Golden Calf. Their holy shrine: Wall Street. Their holy water: Coca-Cola. Their disciples: Washington politicians.

In their world, everything is for sale. Nothing is sacred. Faceless uniformity and blind loyalty are the norm, as in communist dictatorships. If God were to (re)create the world by the designs of the “Princes of the 20th Century” — the multinationals who sit at the head table of the New World Order, there would be only three kinds of creatures:aus-105.jpg

  • All two-legged creatures would be ostriches
  • All four-legged ones would be sheep
  • All sea-living creatures would be sardines, anxiously waiting in long lines at the Princes’ canning factory docks for their turn to jump into cans, and be exported to some distant low-cal, low-brow; low-IQ, but immensely happy consumer society. Thanks to a steady diet of CNN served with Coca-Cola.”

I repeated this assessment in my speech to the Reform Party Convention in May 2000, when Pat Buchanan was running for president…

 

…to a standing ovation by the delegates in attendance, including Pat Buchanan.

HOW INDEPENDENT IS TRUMP REALLY?

Which brings us back the full circle. Not only is Trump not an independent candidate.  He has publicly declared that he would not run as an independent. Trump signed a loyalty oath to the Republican Party back in September, pledging to support the eventual GOP standard-bearer.

And then in October of last year, Trump said…

 This could be the greatest Trojan horse. This (Syrian migration into Europe) could make the (original) Trojan horse look like peanuts if these people turned out to be a lot of ISIS. (Trump on “Face the Nation,” Oct 11, 2015 -http://nyp.st/1Qj0lGF )

But could Trump himself actually be a ‘Trojan Horse’ of New World Order plutocrats?

For, if he were really a reformist American so badly needs, why would he be trying so hard to prove that he is a part of the establishment?

trump-trojan-header

WHAT’S TO BE DONE?

Let me net it out the way I see it…

I have been saying for the last quarter “anybody but a Democrat or a Republican.” That truism also holds for election 2016. Which means neither Sanders to Trump – the two frontrunners are the moment.

As can be seen from this chart, both started more or less from the center of the American political spectrum some 15 years ago, and then drifted far to the left (Sanders) and far to the right (Trump).

More importantly, all candidates will say whatever it takes to get themselves elected. But once in office, how much can they be trusted to keep their promises?

All of those who voted Obama now know the pain of disappointment over broken promises. As do those who voted for the two Bush’s and Clinton before them. I have voted for none of them. So my conscience is clear.

Sanders, like the Clintons, is a party loyalist trying to look like an outsider to distinguish himself from Hillary. Trump is a card-carrying member of the billionaires club – the 563 plutocrats, out of 319 million of us, who have been getting richer while most of the American people are getting poorer.

“Those who deformed us cannot reform us,” read a crude white painted slogan on a Prague wall during the 1989 Velvet Revolution.

So the only person who can truly change the corrupt political system in America is an outsider, neither a Democrat or a Republican.

WHAT TO DO ON NOV 8?

Bottom line? Vote for any third party candidate who emerges between now and November.

Or don’t vote at all. Which is what the majority of Americans has already done.

Over 63% of us boycotted the 2014 midterm elections, the lowest turnout since 1824 (see DISGUST & APATHY: BIG WINNERS IN 2014 ELECTIONS).

That’s because voting for either a Democrat or a Republican will only serve to legitimize the New World Order’s electoral farce and tighten the plutocrats’ noose around our collective necks. A silent protest is better than a vote for an oppressor.

What do I think would actually happen?

UPDATE FEB 27, 2018

THE AMERICAN DEMO FARCE IS GETTING WORSE

85% of Americans think Congress serves lobbyists, not the people

Well, for the Truth in Media readers and followers of several decades, this is nothing new. But it is the new news base don the latest Associated Press poll.

The overwhelming majority of Americans, irrespective of party allegiance, holds a dismal opinion of Congress, a fresh poll shows. It found 89 percent of Democrats and 82 percent of Republicans disapprove of the legislature’s work.

The attitude to the Republican-controlled legislature does not change much across party lines. The number of Democrats that held an unfavorable view of Congress, 89 percent, is only seven percentage points higher than that of Republicans, at 82 percent.

In November 1996, I penned a column which the WASHINGTON TIMES titled “Demo Farce and the American Century.” In it, I wrote:

Election ’96 was a ‘demo farce!’ The U.S. democracy is turning into a New World Order plutocracy.”

 It was in October 1993 that I first deciphered the New World Order’s MO, and identified the real boss. I called David Rockefeller the “Big Chesse” at the time.

“David Rockefeller, the ‘Sir’ in the Milosevic-Eagleburger conversation (see below), is sort of Screen Shot 2015-01-01 at 1.32.54 PMthe ‘Big Cheese,’ the grand patriarch of the American foreign policy, who ‘owns’ people around him. Using the CFR and the TLC as instruments of power, Rockefeller and his associates have nearly all the political and media bases covered. In the end, it does not matter whether Republicans or the Democrats win. Either way, it will be the (Rockefeller) ‘insiders’ who will run the show in Washington. (A quote from “Plutocracy Is Alive and Well in America,” Truth in Media, Nov 1993)

Four years later, I issued this warning about the oligarchs like Rockefeller, Soros and others destroying the middle class and creating a new social order consisting only of have’s and have not’s:

Nowhere is this (class difference) more pronounced than in the U.S. This is where the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and the Great American Divide between the relative ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’ has been growing wider and deeper in the last 30 years.”

ANOTHER DAY WHICH WILL LIVE IN INFAMY

It’s a done deal, Trump recognizes Jerusalem as Israeli capital

ANOTHER DAY WHICH WILL LIVE IN INFAMY

Netanyahu thanks Trump

“I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” the president said today during a speech in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House.

In a recorded statement released minutes after Trump finished talking, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his people would be “forever grateful” for the “historic decision” and urged other countries to follow America’s example.

For more, see… Trump officially recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, orders US embassy move http://fxn.ws/2BEX7fe and also see… https://on.rt.com/8u11


STAND BY FOR A FALLOUT FROM THIS FOOLHARDY DECISION

And now, stand by for a fallout from this foolhardy decision. Will Dec 6 be another day which will live in infamy?

Ironically, tomorrow, Dec 7, the Pearl Harbor Day, is the first such a historical memento. Was Trump trying to preempt it?

We did not have to wait long. Even before the stroke of midnight in Europe, the French president was the first world among world leaders to part company with Trump.

HOW TO GAIN ENEMIES AND LOSE FRIENDS – IN AN INSTANT

When they first met back in July, the two new presidents – Donald Trump of the US and Emmanuel Macron of France – bonded instantly as the best of pals.

Trump-Macron-friends-Jerusalem

Today, in one fell swoop, with his Jerusalem announcement, Trump undid that friendship and turned Macron into a critic.

Here’s what the French president Macron tweeted this evening:

06 December 2017
23:35 GMT
French President Emmanuel Macron expressed his disapproval of Trump’s decision on Twitter.

“France does not approve the decision of the United States. France supports the two-state solution, Israel and Palestine, living in peace and security, with Jerusalem as the capital of the two states. We must privilege appeasement and dialogue,” he said.

An avalanche of criticisms followed the next day (Dec 7), along with violent clashes in occupied Palestinian territories.

THE DAY AFTER: SOME REACTIONS TO TRUMP’S JERUSALEM ANNOUNCEMENT

In reaction to Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, condemnations continue to mount across the Middle East and internationally. Even the US “friends” are steaming about it.

Eight countries on the 15-member UN Security Council requested a meeting, including the UK, Italy and France, amid claims from Palestine and Turkey that recognition by the US president is in breach of both international law and UN resolutions.

The EU foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, said the bloc had a united position that Jerusalem must be the capital of both Israel and a future Palestinian state. France said it rejected the “unilateral” US decision while the UK prime minister, Theresa May, and the foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, both described Trump’s announcement as “unhelpful”.

The Russian foreign ministry said US recognition risked “dangerous and uncontrollable consequences”.

Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, hailed US recognition of Jerusalem as “historic” and claimed other countries were in contact about following Trump’s lead, but was alone among regional leaders in praising the move.

Saudi Arabia’s royal court called it “unjustified and irresponsible” in a rare rebuke of the US, and the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, said Trump had thrown the Middle East into a “ring of fire”.

President of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas said that Trump’s declaration meant that the US “abdicates” any role in mediating the Arab-Israeli conflict. In a televised speech, Abbas said he “condemned and rejected” the US decision, which he said will “serve terrorists” and “bring never-ending wars to the region.”

SOME READER REACTIONS

[Name withheld]: Bob, this has been promised for a long time. It is the city that Israel considers its capital…it would b like refusing to recognize Moscow or Washington Dc.

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: Ridiculous comparisons. You should really brush up on history. Unlike Moscow or Washington, Jerusalem is also a holy city for the Muslims and the Christians. Maybe you should have said, that’s like claiming the Vatican is the capital of NATO. Which would have been actually closer to the truth.

VIOLENT CLASHES IN OCCUPIED PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES

Meanwhile, slashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli troops have taken place in cities across the occupied West Bank as anger over Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital spilled on to the streets.

The most violent confrontations occurred in Ramallah, Bethlehem and Hebron, where Israeli security forces fired teargas and plastic-coated rounds as hundreds of protesters threw stones and set alight barricades.

In the Gaza Strip, dozens of protesters gathered near the border fence with Israel and threw rocks at soldiers on the other side. Two protesters were wounded by live fire, with one reported to be in a critical condition.

A fresh round of violent protests are expected on Friday at mass demonstrations called to follow Friday prayers.

TOP JERUSALEM CHRISTIAN LEADERS WARN TRUMP OF “VIOLENCE AND SUFFERING” IF US RECOGNIZES THE HOLY CITY AS ISRAEL’S CAPITAL

Trump’s decision to cause “irreparable harm,” 13 patriarchs of Christian churches say

Christian leaders in Jerusalem have just sent an open letter to Donald Trump asking him to reconsider his planned recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The 13 patriarchs and church heads in Jerusalem told Trump that this decision would cause “irreparable harm.”

“We are certain that such steps will yield increased hatred, conflict, violence and suffering in Jerusalem and the Holy Land, moving us farther from the goal of unity and deeper toward destructive division,” wrote the leaders of the Greek Orthodox, Coptic, Catholic, and other branches of Christianity that are represented in the city.

Editorial Comment Re. Biblical Prophesies

IS TRUMP LEADING US ON A PATH TO ARMAGEDDON?

​We live in Biblical times… and that’s not a good​ thing

What the Christian patriarchs yesterday (Dec 6) told the man who professes to be a Christian but acts as if he were an Israeli pawn, is what every child knows: “Let the sleeping dog lie.”

The “sleeping dog” – the Middle East – has been relatively quiet lately.

But no, this Judas Iscariot reincarnate has apparently decided to do what no other American president ever dared to: Poke the sleeping dog in the eye.

There could be only one motive for that and one consequence. The motive: to appease his Zionist handlers. The consequence: Strife, unrest, violence and maybe even another middle-eastern war.

That’s apparently what Israel wants. And what Israel wants, Trump apparently does.

O tempora, o mores… (“What times we live in…”, Lat.).

We actually live in biblical times. Because that’s what the Bible had predicted – see Israel and Jerusalem: The Road To Armageddon.

Are these maniacs in Washington and Tel Aviv suicidal? Or is the Bible wrong?

Either way, the world should brace itself for what is to come. Nothing good, to be sure, in the short run.

So check out this biblical prophesy, but first read this PREFACE.

PREFACE TO THIS BIBLICAL PROPHESY

This writer is aware that the Bible was written by about 40 men over the course of 1,500 years. None of them were writers. Matthew was a tax-collector, John was a fisherman, Paul was a tentmaker, Moses was a shepherd, Luke was a physician, Isaiah was a prophet, Ezra was a priest, and so on.

Notice that they were all MEN. So the Bible inevitably contains at least a sexual bias.The Bible authors also had other biases stemming from their backgrounds and the periods they lived in. 

So a truth-seeker must take the biblical prophesies with a grain of salt. Like, “then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man” (Genesis, 2:22). 

Really?

That said, this thrice-ordained shaman also knows firsthand that it is possible for some men (and women!) to receive direct communications from the spirit realm. 

Finally, as a former war correspondent and geopolitical commentator, this writer also knows that a truth-seeker must consider a variety of sources before forming his opinions, particularly on a subject as complex as the Middle East history and politics.

So take this preface as a warning not to take everything you read in the Bible literally as gospel truth, although much of it really is. So you have to use your own JUDGMENT.


Biblical Prophecy

Israel and Jerusalem:
The Road To Armageddon

“I (God) will bless those who bless you (Israel) and will curse those who curse you” (Genesis 12:3)

The Bible warns the destiny of the World is inseparable from Israel and Jerusalem. The Bible says God would one day re-gather the children of Israel back into their land from among many nations around the world. The Bible says they would be re-gathered in unbelief … God warns He is not re-gathering the children of Israel into their Land because they deserve it, but because His Name and His Word are at stake (see Ezekiel 36:17-23) … and because He loves them. They are His chosen people.

The Bible warns God would then make Jerusalem a world trouble spot. The Bible says all nations of the world will turn against Israel. The Bible warns during this time ‘Gaza will be forsaken’ … and offers a stark warning.

The Bible warns a coming world leader (the ‘Antichrist’) will rise out of 10 nations which once formed the Roman Empire and will enforce a peace plan or treaty (‘covenant’) upon Israel (‘upon the many’ – for many in Israel will be against it) …

And then, after a 3½ year false peace, God warns He will send the children of Israel (and all the nations of the world) through a fiery trial unlike anything in the history of the world, to separate those who will turn back to God and His Word from those who have hardened their hearts against God and His Word (the ‘Apocalypse’).

The Bible warns two-thirds of the people in Israel will be ‘cut off and die’ during this time.

Then, one day when the armies of the world will gather in and around nation Israel (the coming battle of Armageddon) and when all seems lost for the children of Israel, the Bible says a believing remnant will recognize their Messiah from Scripture, and will call upon His Name. He will then return to save Israel.

The Bible also tells us ‘after these things’ the little nation of Israel and the children of Israel will rule over all the nations on Earth, in peace, under her King and Messiah Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha’Mashiach in Hebrew). The Bible says all of the covenants, promises, curses, prophecies, and blessings God has made to the children and nation of Israel will be fulfilled …

Interesting comment by a friend from the Netherlands.

“The most anti-Semitic Jew ever to walk this side of eternity! Netanyahu and those like him defile our Judaic consciousness and conscience” (Abraham A. van Kempen).

Which is why one must be very careful NOT to associate Netanyahu and his cronies, like Jared Kushner and other American Zionists, with all Jews.

Hail to the ‘Freier’ in Chief …

In Yiddish, ‘Freier’ means SUCKER, the worst insult to a Jew. It’s taken me 64 years to realise that I have been a sucker not realising I was until 2014 when I was in the Region, seeing, hearing and smelling with all of my senses the rains of Israeli terror pouring down on GAZA.

All Jews, all Israelis, all the people around the world who support Israeli terror are SUCKERS, particularly Jews and Christians who know better. They are following in the footsteps of the ilk like Netanyahu. Zionism rules and dominates the Israeli zeitgeist beguiling and chaining many Jews into believing in something they are not. These Zionists are suckered into a belief that Zionism is the answer, the Way, the Truth and the Life. Only a sucker could believe that.

And what is it about that face that disturbs me profoundly? Phony? Deceptive? Fake? Imposter? Speaking from all sides of his mouth? Hateful? Inciteful? The most anti-Semitic Jew ever to walk this side of eternity! Netanyahu and those like him defile our Judaic consciousness and conscience. He is more than fake. He is false. He is even a worse freier than all the freiers he leads.

RUSSIA ALSO CONDEMNS TRUMP’S DECISION ON JERUSALEM

“Jerusalem is ours” – Muslims protest around the world

Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov joined an international chorus of criticism over the move by the Trump administration. “The fact is that the statement [of recognition] goes against all the previous agreements,” he said, adding that it divided global communities into two “very, very unequal parts.” Israel is the only nation openly endorsing the move, but some US allies like Canada have refrained from criticizing it too loudly.

Lavrov, who was speaking to journalists in Vienna, said the Trump administration has shot itself in the foot with the decision, undermining their own Middle East strategy. “They previously said, let’s normalize the relations between Washington and the Arab world, and once it is done, the Palestinian issue can be resolved,” he said. “By taking the decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem the Trump administration have undermined their effort to normalize the relations with the Arabs.”

Meanwhile, a wave of protests has swept the Muslim World after Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital. A man was killed and hundreds injured in clashes in the West Bank, while US flags were burned at mass rallies in Iran, Pakistan and elsewhere.

Over 200 people were injured on Friday as violent protests in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza went into a second day, according to Palestinian officials. Israeli security forces employed tear gas, rubber bullets and even live ammunition to disperse the demonstrators.

Scuffles were reported outside the Old City gates in Jerusalem as worshippers, who were leaving the Al Aqsa Mosque, chanted “Jerusalem is ours, Jerusalem is our capital,” and “We don’t need empty words, we need stones and Kalashnikovs.”

More than 3,000 Palestinians took part in protests in at least 30 locations in the region, the Israeli military said. The unrest began after Friday prayers, when Palestinians began throwing stones at IDF troops.

Elsewhere, the US troops in Afghanistan are on a special ‘Notice to Move’ alert following the US’ Jerusalem decision, according to the Military Times. Donald Trump’s announcement has been met with anger across the Middle East, stoking fears of US troops being targeted.

TAKING SIDES FUELS CONTINUOUS CONFLICT
 
Isn’t 69 years of bloodshed proof enough?
ALTZAR: Thought you may find this correspondence of interest as it provides a historical background to the conflict in Palestine.
“Okay let me get this straight Jerusalem which in the Old Testament was the capital of Israel, long before there were Muslims of any kind, and all these people are violently disagreeing with the decision to Simply recognize a pre-existing condition, and that somehow invalidates Trump’s decision but validates their own by the use of said violence.
Okay this is just beyond stupid.”
Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: Yes, you do know your history. But selectively, it seems. At that, you are following a treacherous historical path back to about 1,000 BC.
Before that, however, Israel was not Jewish. It was a Canaanites’ land (in 2nd millennium BC). And before that who knows… maybe refugees from the Atlantis disaster?
If you use this kind of logic going back 4,000 years or more, you would have to remap the entire world. Which would lead to chaos and global warfare.

More relevant is the fact that over 700,000 Palestinians were “ethnically cleansed”, to use a modern term, after Israel declared independence in May 1948, under the protection of the US government. That’s around 80 percent of the Arab inhabitants of what became the state of Israel.

It is that kind of injustice that has fueled all subsequent wars.
So you see, there is no right or wrong in a protracted conflict such as this. Both sides have committed atrocities and acted as terrorists depending how far back you wind the clock of history.
Which is why the only sensible policy is NOT TO TAKE SIDES (i.e., the opposite of what the US has been doing in the last seven decades). Because supporting one ethnic group against another will provide fuel fo continuous conflicts. Isn’t 69 years of bloodshed proof enough?

In East Jerusalem, mounted police cleared Palestinians who attempted to block traffic. Trash cans were set alight in the city and stun grenade explosions were frequently heard.

RT’s Charlotte Dubenskij was reporting from Salah ad Din street Saturday, the main thoroughfare of East Jerusalem, when several stun grenades landed meters from her, forcing the RT crew to take shelter behind a parked car.

RT’s team filmed at least one injured elderly man taken away by medics. Palestinian news agency WAFA said mounted police knocked people over in Jerusalem, including journalists. 32 people were injured in Jerusalem, according to Red Crescent. Police were knocking phones from the hands of the reporters while dispersing the crowd, a RIA Novosti journalist reported from the scene.

Dozens of people were injured during riots in Bethlehem Saturday, the Palestinian Health Ministry said as cited by WAFA. Security forces fired tear gas, stun grenades and rubber bullets when the crowd approached an Israeli military base in the city. The protests occurred at around 20 other locations in the West Bank, including in Ramallah and Tulkarm, the IDF said.

A wave of anti-American and anti-Israeli protests swept through numerous countries. Thousands of people took to the streets to denounce the declaration and burn US flags and portraits of Trump in Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Memorial Day 2002 Truth in Media editorial – Revisited

HOW TO WIN THE PEACE IN TWO SIMPLE STEPS

Dump treacherous “ally” (Israel), diversify away from Arab oil

“The only way for America to win the ‘war on terrorism’ in the long run is to disengage from Israel AND from the Middle East oil – both the root causes of anti-American terrorism” (an excerpt from Truth in Media, May 26, 2002

Recent turmoil in the Middle East and elsewhere, caused by Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, reminded me of this Truth in Media editorial I wrote over 15 years ago. It provided a simple solution to the seemingly intractable Middle East problems. Yet even as I wrote that piece, I never expected the US government to implement it. Because war is much more profitable, especially to the “death merchants.”

And so the endless cycles of violence continue, from one generation to another. We cannot think of a better example than that of “PERPETUAL WAR FOR PERPETUAL COMMERCE” – the real New World Order motto which we first discerned in 1993.

An excerpt from Truth in Media, May 26, 2002:

HOW TO WIN THE PEACE IN TWO SIMPLE STEPS

Dump treacherous “ally” (Israel), diversify away from Arab oil

There are a couple of editorial observations we wish to share with you on this Memorial Day weekend in the U.S.

First, a very simple and PEACEFUL ending to both America’s “war on terrorism,” and to our continued involvement in the never-ending Middle Eastern wars, is staring us in the face.  If the Bush administration were really an American government acting in OUR country’s best interests, it could end the senseless fight with one-two geopolitical punches:

  • Punch One… an uppercut to Israel.  Dump this treacherous “ally;” the only “ally” that has ever attacked us, killing 34 American soldiers and injuring 172 others (USS Liberty, 1967); the only “ally” that has sapped the U.S. Treasure to the tune of nearly one hundred billion dollars, while using our money and arms to wage state terrorism against its Arab neighbors; the only “ally” that has brazenly spied on us, and then had the audacity to demand a pardon for its spy (Jonathan Pollard); the only “ally” that continues to spy on us (see Fox TV News series on Israeli “students”, Dec. 2001 – Ashcroft: Tough on American Liberties, Soft on Israeli Spies, Mar. 2002).
  • Punch Two… a plexus to Arab oil.  Reduce our dependence on Arab oil.  Which ultimately means also cease cozying up to the embarrassing totalitarian regimes that have allowed acts of terrorism against Americans to be committed on their soil (see partial list of bombings in the Middle East).  The warming up of the Russo-American relations is a welcome step in that direction, as Russia is a major global energy supplier and an OPEC competitor (see Russia vs. OPEC, Sep. 2000).

But given that at present we import 70% of our oil from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait vs. next to nothing from Russia; and that Russia accounts for 10% of the global oil output versus OPEC’s 40%; it will take a long time before such a policy change gets traction. But “a thousand mile journey begins with the first step,” as Confucius noted.

PEACE DIVIDENDS

The Punch One would remove a major cause of anti-Americanism around the world, especially in Muslim countries.  The Punch Two would take the (economic) punch out of the countries that hate us.  The only way for America to win the “war on terrorism” in the long run is to disengage from Israel AND from the Middle East oil – both the root causes of anti-American terrorism.

That’s no great wisdom.  That’s just common sense.

What are the chances of common sense prevailing in Washington’s foreign policy?  The same as that of true American patriotism… slim to none.  As long as the Bush administration is acting as a proxy of both the Israeli lobby and of the multinational oil companies, the American people will be the victims of both and the designated targets for international terrorism.

JERUSALEM – UPDATE DEC 11, 2017

WHAT IS PUTIN UP TO?

His shuttle diplomacy: Met with 3 presidents in 3 countries in 1 day

There is a good chance that Putin is cooking up something in the Middle East with his shuttle diplomacy today. He met with Assad in Syria, with Al Sisi in Egypt, and finished the day with a meeting with Erdogan in Turkey.

All three countries are Israel’s neighbors and important players in the Middle East. All three are opposed to Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. As is virtually the entire world.

Russia also has good relations with Iran, and of late, even with Saudi Arabia. If Putin manages to bridge the chasm between the Sunny and the Shia Muslims, he just might be able to assemble a formidable opposition to the US-Israeli Jerusalem declaration.

If that’s what this shuttle diplomacy was about, it will be worth watching what follows over the next days and weeks.

PS: On a lighter note, notice the same tie Putin is wearing on all three occasions? 🙂

PATHETIC SUMMIT IN ISTANBUL EXPOSES WEAKNESS OF TOOTHLESS LEADERS OF 57 MUSLIM COUNTRIES

These Muslim leaders are no longer relevant, writes Robert Fisk, a longtime Middle East correspondent for the London Independent newspaper – https://goo.gl/4fns4R

“They represent failed states with neither morality nor courage to show for their presence at the Istanbul summit,” he writes.

“It was just more claptrap from an organization (that’s already changed its name twice) which offers no hope, no initiative, no justice and no future to the people of its collective autocracies.”

DISMAL FAILURE OF MUSLIM LEADERS TO STAND UP AND SUPPORT THE PALESTINIANS OVER JERUSALEM

If there was anything to beat in mediocrity the childish and delinquent declaration by Donald Trump that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, it was the pathetic response from Muslim states. For there in Istanbul this week were all the tired old men to whom we have listened for so many years, none sadder or more woebegone than the ageing and useless “President” of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas.

There were supposed to be 57 heads of state of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in the Turkish capital, but some were simply too old and senile – the comatose Bouteflika of Algeria, for example – or too busy shouting abuse at other Arabs states or bombing Yemen.

Oh yes, of course, they demanded that the “international community” accept east Jerusalem as Palestine’s “capital” – a capital for a state that doesn’t exist and, at this rate, never will.

It was just more claptrap from an organization (that’s already changed its name twice) which offers no hope, no initiative, no justice and no future to the people of its collective autocracies.

The “world” – an interesting concept in Middle East terms – and America will only become worried if these tired men have courage. Or what we used to call the courage of their convictions.

If America has hurled itself out of peace-making – which it supposedly has, although I wouldn’t count on Abbas keeping his phone off the hook if the White House calls – then these potentates should be considering a diplomatic boycott of the United States, or the breaking off of relations or even a mild but increasingly severe oil boycott. There was a time when they did this sort of thing.

But that’s not going to happen.

It might have been wise if (the Palestinian leader) Abbas had contested the Trump decision at the international court, but the Palestinian leadership is so uninspiring (and corrupt) that I doubt if it even dreamed of such a move.

And that’s the problem. If you have a delinquent American president, you need serious young people – international lawyers, negotiators, experienced diplomats – to defend the peoples of the Middle East. There are UN resolutions enough to apply to Jerusalem and the occupied territories. But no, not a word did we hear of these. It was as if apathy and hopelessness guide these figures. For more, see THE INDEPENDENT – https://goo.gl/4fns4R

APATHY GALORE: PLUTOCRATS ARE WINNING… FOR NOW

And so it goes… like America, like Middle East. Apathy at home, apathy overseas.

Nobody dares challenge the oligarchs. So the plutocrats are winning sowing fear, uncertainty and doubt. The slave mentality is engulfing the world.

Because those who can, are doing nothing. And those who do, are just pissing in the wind.

The world is desperately in the need of a messiah of some kind, a person who would INSPIRE and uplift the spirit of humanity.

Is Putin that guy? Time will tell.

Meanwhile, we’d better not wait that long. We must start to “trust only yourself and you own nag” (a Serbian proverb: “Uzdaj se samo u se i u svoje kljuse”).

US VETOES UN RESOLUTION ON JERUSALEM

All other Security Council members vote for it

US AND ISRAEL: ROGUE STATES

As expected, the US vetoed today the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution on Jerusalem, which had demanded the American decision recognizing the city as the Israeli capital be withdrawn. All other UNSC members voted in favor of the document.

The French envoy to the UN said in his speech that the US still “should explain compatibility of its decision [on Jerusalem] with the international consensus.” He also added that France “regrets” the outcome of the vote that has become a symbol of 14 UNSC members’ willingness to “confirm their attachment to international law.”

By this action, the United States has effectively taken itself and Israel out of the world community. “What’s good for the goose is not good for the gander,” when it comes to Trump and Netanyahu.

These two governments have now set themselves as international outcasts, leaders of pariah states which do not respect international laws and norms.

Of course, for Israel, that’s nothing knew. That country had already violated over 80 UN Security Council resolutions, and many others passed by the UN General Assembly over the last seven decades (see “Rogue State: Israeli Violations of U.N. Security Council Resolutions” – Foreign Policy – https://goo.gl/hYZAtz).

And the US has backed Israel’s intransigence for the most part. But not always.

Defying extraordinary pressure from President-elect Donald Trump and furious lobbying by Israel, the Obama administration on Dec 23, 2016 allowed the United Nations Security Council to adopt a resolution that condemned Israeli settlement construction.

So never before have the US and Israel been so utterly isolated in the world community as today’s UN Security Council vote has shown.

And the protests around the world, not just in Palestine, are continuing. In Indonesia, for example, some 80,000 people demonstrated today against Trump’s Jerusalem recognition – see the video… https://on.rt.com/8v1k.

Israel’s ‘attack against Christians’: Ancient Jerusalem church closes to protest Israeli tax, land policies

ALTZAR: So you think Trump’s Dec 6 unlawful and inane Jerusalem recognition as Israel’s capital was only aimed against the Palestinians? You will think again after you read this story. 

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, originally built by Constantine the Great in 336 AD on the site where Jesus is believed to have been crucified and buried, shut down indefinitely on Sunday (Feb 25) in protest against a new Israeli tax policy and draft law on land expropriation. The leaders of Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, and Armenian churches announced the closure of the holy site in a joint statement, accusing Israel of a “systematic and unprecedented attack against Christians in the Holy Land.”

A bill which would allow the authorities to expropriate land that was sold to private firms by churches in Jerusalem since 2010 was to be considered by the Israeli government on Sunday. The Jerusalem city authorities have also recently cancelled tax exemptions granted to church-owned commercial properties and are now demanding back payments.

The Christian church leaders argued that the Israeli actions “breach existing agreements and international obligations which guarantee the rights and the privileges of the Churches, in what seems as an attempt to weaken the Christian presence in Jerusalem… “The greatest victims in this are those impoverished families who will go without food and housing, as well as the children who will be unable to attend school.”

“The Jerusalem municipality issued scandalous collection notices and orders of seizure of Church assets, properties and bank accounts for alleged debts of punitive municipal taxes,” Theophilos III, the Patriarch of Jerusalem, Francesco Patton, the Custos of the Holy Land, and Nourhan Manougian, the Armenian Patriarch of Jerusalem, said.

The top clerics blasted the proposed Israeli legislation as “abhorrent… discriminatory and racist,” saying that “this reminds us all of laws of a similar nature, which were enacted against the Jews during dark periods in Europe.” As for the future of the holy site, “we will decide when and how the church will re-open,” they added.

WHY DID THE BALKAN WARS HAPPEN?

Final word on Yugoslavia’s disintegration

WHY DID THE BALKAN WARS HAPPEN?

In conclusion to the excerpts from my wartime diaries, I will try to answer a question some of you have been asking: Why did the Balkan wars happen in the 1990s that led to disintegration of Yugoslavia, a country cobbled together after the Treaty of Versailles in 1918, and a founding member of the United Nations.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s the answer to the above question.

 

During the years I worked as a war correspondent and geopolitical commentator (1989-2002), I had written literally hundreds of articles and hundreds of thousands of words on that topic.

It would be, therefore, nigh impossible for any of you to distill the truth and the answer to my title question without spending enormous amounts of time researching this topic. So let me try to answer it succinctly, paraphrasing almost word-for-word my comments about the Dayton Peace Agreement signed on Nov 25, 1995 – 22 years ago almost to the day – https://www.truthinmedia.org/Bulletins/tim95-11.html.

 

Here’s an excerpt from the article written on that day during my layover in Paris, enroute to Belgrade:

CONNECTING “NATO WEST” WITH “NATO EAST” – THAT’S WHY

“The former Yugoslavia, and especially Bosnia, represents an important strategic link between NATO’s western and eastern wings (connecting Turkey and Greece with Italy and the future NATO members – Bulgaria, Macedonia, Hungary).

It so happens that the same route, the so-called “Green Interstate,” also connects the various Muslim enclaves between Bosnia and Turkey (see the map, also published with that 1995 article). The Bihac-Sarajevo-Gorazde-Pristina-Skopje-Instanbul line marks the way Islam is supposed to expand from Turkey into Europe.

That’s why the Sarajevo Muslim government fought tooth and nail to keep Gorazde and Bihac, while giving up relatively easily on the less strategic enclaves of Srebrenica and Zepa (further north).

That’s also why the American globalists – liberals or conservatives alike – have been backing the Bosnian Muslims – the truth be damned at times. One of them is Warren Zimmermann, a member of the Council for Foreign Relations (CFR), a liberal-minded Yale graduate, and the last U.S. ambassador in Belgrade.”

 

SERBS BECAME “DESIGNATED VILLAINS” BECAUSE OF THEIR TRADITIONAL FRIENDSHIP WITH RUSSIA

And now, 22 years later, let’s look at the upshot of all these wars which, for the ignorant, including the local ethnic groups, had been characterized as “ethnic wars.”

But that was just a cover story. The real reason was that following the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the territory of the former Yugoslavia represented a political vacuum. And NATO, meaning Washington, wanted to grab it before the Russians did.

That is why the Serbs, the largest ethnic group in Yugoslavia before the wars (40% – see the map) were picked as Designated Villains. It was because of their Orthodox Christian faith and the traditional friendship and alliance with Russia.

The rest was just a smoke screen – the way the forces of the New World Order sold this war to the local Yugoslav and the world.

PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING, OR IN KOSOVO IN THIS CASE

And the proof is in the pudding, or Kosovo in this case.

In that same 1995 article (“Green Interstate”), written on the day the Bosnian war officially ended, I predicted that the next Balkan war would be over Kosovo.

Lo and behold, in 1999, the entire NATO threw its military might against Serbia in order to grab this strategically important Serbian province.

Now, 22 years later, the US base Bondsteel in Kosovo is the largest military installation Washington has built in Europe since WW II.

 

Furthermore, Washington and its vassals have even minted Kosovo into a new “country” although more than half the world (geographically – see the map) is still refusing to go along with such a land grab.

Also, Slovenia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania and Albania are all now NATO countries, in addition to Turkey and Greece which had been NATO members before the Yugoslav wars.

Which means the US has now achieved its strategic objective of cutting off Russia from the Balkans, and therefore, that part of the Mediterranean Sea.

COSTS OF WAR AND BIGGEST WAR CRIMINALS

And at what cost did US/NATO achieve its strategic objective?

At least 140,000 people killed, 2.4 million refugees, and another 2 million internally displaced (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yugoslav_Wars).

 

And then the monsters who caused such carnage and suffering (Clinton, Blair, Chirac, Chretien, Schroeder, etc. – see the photo), had the audacity to prosecute others for war crimes?

 

Which is why the verdicts by the International War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague amount to MOCKERY OF JUSTICE, a fig leaf covering the bigger crimes of much bigger criminals.

UPDATE NOVEMBER 28, 2017

HOW SERB DUMMIES FOOLED NATO DUMMIES – REVISITED

When I filed that editorial “Final word on Yugoslavia’s disintegration: WHY DID THE BALKAN WARS HAPPEN?” (https://wp.me/p3QU1S-2MH) a few days ago, I thought I was done with that topic which I rarely visited in the last 15 years since I stopped working as a war correspondent. But it was not to be.

There is a story buzzing around the internet in the last couple of days which is sending the lamestream media into apoplexy.  A Serb general, who was convicted by the Hague Kangaroo Court for alleged war crimes during NATO’s bombing of Serbia, has been invited to teach at the Serbian Military Academy (https://goo.gl/8oLoV3 – US News and World Report; or https://nyti.ms/2i0ksUI – New York Times).

Do you want to know what General Vladimir Lazarevic’s and his bosses’ General Nebojsa Pavkovic’s real “crimes” were?

They made fools out of the NATO pompous asses.

 

Reading the above story made me chuckle ear-to-ear, as I recalled two editorials I wrote 17 and 11 years ago respectively of HOW SERB DUMMIES FOOLED NATO DUMMIES. Here are links to these two stories and the photo album of Serb decoys:

Meanwhile, the Serb general who has upset the lamestream media’s and NATO’s apple cart, went on Serbian television recently (Nov 18) and shared in a lengthy interview some additional details about how the Serbian military outwitted the mighty NATO in during the 1999.

When the Serbs rolled out their troops and equipment out of Kosovo after the peace treaty was signed in June 1999, “the NATO generals were nearly fainted,” he said. Because after 78 days of bombing, during which NATO dropped 23,000 bombs and missiles, more than 95% of the Serbian military arsenal remained intact.

“We were saving them for when and if the ground attack came,”General Lazarevic explained. “For example, they only hit 7 out of 750 tanks we had in Kosovo.”

And how did they manage that?

By building over 3,000 “dummies’ which left the same imprint on the NATO radars as the real tanks. Ditto re. the phantom MIG’s made out of wood which NATO kept hitting.

“That’s what they’ve been mostly hitting with their multi-million dollar bombs,” he said.

 

 

 

That, and the civilian targets, I might add. Like these in Nis, the third largest city in Serbia, where NATO used cluster bombs designed for maximum casualties among the civilians (see https://www.truthinmedia.org/Tour-de-Serbia-99/Nis/nis-photos-1.html).

 

HOW I WAS CONTACTED WHILE IN SERBIA BY THE CLINTON WHITE HOUSE VIA AN INTERMEDIARY

Alas, the ground attack never came.  Because Bill Clinton and his “powdered prince” Wesley Clark, who commanded the NATO attack on Serbia, didn’t have the balls or the stomach for it. And it’s a good thing they did not. Because it would have been slaughter. And a lot more American and British families would have lost their loved ones.

You see, according to General Clark’s and other top NATO estimates, the war on Serbia was supposed to last 7 to 10 days (see https://www.truthinmedia.org/Kosovo/Peace/ps8.html, June 24, 1999). By middle of April 1999, however, both Clinton and Clark and other NATO co-belligerents were already getting desperate.

While I was in Belgrade during the bombing (in mid-April), for example, I was contacted over an open phone line by a Washington source who said he had just spoken to Bill Clinton at the White House.  My source said Clinton was appealing to Americans of Serbian descent to try to procure a peace negotiations with the Belgrade government. So he wanted to see what I can do while I was on the ground in Serbia.

Of course, I refused to do any such thing. Trying to bail out war criminals like Clinton and Clark was the last thing on my mind while their bombs were raining on my native city,  But I did meet with two top Serb generals in Belgrade the following day. And was impressed with their resolve to fight on no matter what.

Here’s an excerpt from my report on that day:

“Sometimes, the truth comes out in dribbles, years after an event has taken place.  Two new stories out of Belgrade about NATO’s 1999 war on Serbia make this point.  To appreciate their significance, however, we must turn our clocks back to April 16, 1999…

That Friday, Day 24 of NATO’s war on Serbia, NATO had launched its first daytime bombing raids on Belgrade.  The air raid sirens went off mid-morning, just as this writer was meeting with the Serbian Patriarch Pavle, the head of the Serbian Orthodox Church.  From then on, daytime attacks became routine.  Such an escalation of war was a clear sign that NATO leaders were getting exasperated.  The bombing was supposed to last 7-10 days and result in a surrender of Serbia, according to a pre-war estimate by General Wesley Clark, then the supreme NATO commander.  Yet here we were, already in the fourth week of the war, and there was no let up in the Serbian resolve to fight back.beog4-17.jpg (22337 bytes)

What followed was a wild and woolly Saturday night, Day 25 of NATO’s war on Serbia.  Salvos of anti-aircraft artillery fire (AAA) filled in the audio gaps between detonations of NATO bombs and missiles.  It was a horrifying symphony of death and destruction orchestrated from Brussels by one General Clark, and from Washington by one draft dodger Bill Clinton.  Ground shook as the cold spring air whipped up by explosions occasionally swirled around this writer’s head like a mini-tornado.  Belgrade was getting it, Novi Sad was being pounded (the second largest city in Serbia), Sremska Mitrovica was also taking heavy hits. But the worst off was Mount Fruska Gora, that lies between these three cities.  It was being raked over by NATO bombers as if it were a meadow (click on the image left for a detailed map of this area and of the Balkans).” (from http://truthinmedia.org/Bulletins2006/NATO_secrets.html)

 

MEETING WITH GENERAL PAVKOVIC AND HIS GENERAL STAFF

A few months later, in September 1999, during my post-war Tour of Serbia (http://www.truthinmedia.org/Tour-de-Serbia-99/tim99-10-1.html), I also met and had breakfast with General Nebojsa Pavkovi in Nis, Serbia.  As commander of the Third Army, Pavkovic was General Lazarevic’s boss at the time.

 

After a cordial conversation with General Pavkovic and his top officers (General Lazarevic may have been among them, though I honestly do not remember him), General Pavkovic presented me with a book – recognition of my service to the Truth during the war (see the photo).

Like Lazarevic, Pavkovic was also charged with and convicted of war crimes by the Hague kangaroo court. Pavkovic is now serving a 22-year sentence in Finland. Lazarevi was released on December 2015 after serving 2/3 of his 14-year sentence.

MILOSEVIC’S STRATEGIC ERROR WHICH ULTIMATELY COST HIM HIS LIFE

So agreeing to that peace treaty in June 1999 while his army was still virtually intact was a STRATEGIC ERROR on the part of Milosevic, Serbia’s president at the time. Because it opened the door to NATO to march into Kosovo unopposed. And it ultimately cost him his life.

It was just a matter of time before the tables were turned, and Milosevic, along with the Serb generals, ended up being rounded up and charged with war crimes by the Hague War Crimes Tribunal. Milosevic died there under mysterious circumstances in March 2006 (see Who Says There Is No Death Penalty at the Hague, Mar 11, 2006 – http://truthinmedia.org/Bulletins2006/Milosevic.html).

Meanwhile, back to General Lazarevic, in recognition of his cunning military skills and tactics, he received a medal from the Russian Minister of Defense, General Igor Sergeyev, before being carted off to the Hague in 2005 to face the New World Order charges.

So not only is Gen. Lazarevic qualified to teach at the Military College in Serbia for having made such fools out of NATO, if the NATO military had an ounce of humility, he should been invited as lecturer to the West Point and/or Sandringham.

 

And now, with that as a preamble, check out my 2006 editorial, about NATO’s SECRET LOSSES How Serbian Air Force Outwitted World’s Greatest Military Force and Inflicted Heavy Losses on NATO Planes, Helicopters and Personnel in Bosnia, Albania – http://truthinmedia.org/Bulletins2006/NATO_secrets.html.

The “NATO Doctrine”

“A military alliance of 19 nations and 780 million people; with over half of the world’s gross economic product, possessing two-thirds of the global military power, ganged up on a tiny nation of 10 million. For 78 days, NATO terrorized the people of Serbia, dropping 23,000 bombs and missiles on them in 36,000 sorties. Yet the Serbs remained unbowed and uncowed.  This is not hearsay.  I saw their defiance with my own eyes during the six days I had spent under NATO’s bombardment.” 

(An excerpt from Bob Djurdjevic’s global speaking tour, Fall/Winter 1999)

The “Clinton Doctrine”

“Bomb the civilians and the civilian structures until that country’s military can’t stand to watch it anymore.” [(Late) Col. David Hackworth, one of America’s most decorated soldiers]

Here’s a video story about these Serbian Air Force attacks on NATO (in Serbian),

It is a story about several daring counter-attacks by the Serbian Air Force during NATO’s war on Serbia. On April 18, 1999, they attacked and destroyed 17 NATO aircraft and 3 rescue helicopters at the Tuzla, Bosnia airport.
On April 13 and 26, 1999, they staged one of the most daring raids since in Europe since WW II. Flying low, barely just the ground level to avoid detection in a coordinated mission from two airports, one in Serbia one in Montenegro, four Serbian Air Force Seagulls G-4S hit the NATO troops and the Apache attack helicopters at the Rinas airport in Tirana, Albania. All four returned to their bases unharmed.
Don’t look for Hollywood to make a movie about it. Bill Clinton and his administration never acknowledged these losses in Tuzla and Tirana. But the fact that their planned Apache and ground attacks from Albania never took place speaks volumes about the effectiveness of the Serbian Air Force raids.

GENERAL MLADIC SENTENCED TO LIFE IN PRISON BY UN KANGAROO COURT

Victors’ Justice on Display Again at the Hague: Dutch Judge Ejects Defendant from Courtroom before Sentencing

“THIS IS ALL LIES… THIS IS A NATO COURT”, SHOUTS DEFIANT SERB GENERAL BEFORE SENTENCING

A Mockery of Justice: General Mladic Sentenced to Life in Prison by UN “Kangaroo Court” at the Hague

Minutes before the Presiding Judge of the UN War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague was to pronounce the court’s sentence in Serb General Ratko Mladic’s trial, the defense asked the court for either adjournment on account of Mladic’s health (high blood pressure – 180/80 – tested twice by a courtroom nurse), or to dispense with the reading with the lengthy summary and proceed directly to sentencing (see the video below).

At that point, the presiding judge Alphonse Orie of Netherlands asked Mladic to sit down. The Serb general remained standing defiantly and shouted (in Serbian) “this is all lies… this is a NATO court.”

The court TV had cut off Mladic’s microphone but his loud voice carried through the courtroom so it can be heard on this video.

Thereupon, the judge ordered the defendant bodily removed from the courtroom. So General Mladic was forced to hear the court’s life in prison sentence in a separate room.

This macabre ending of a six-year long trial, the last of the major cases from the wars in the former Yugoslavia which the UN War Crimes Tribunal has handled, was a fitting finale of a mockery of justice which has been on display at this court in the last two decades (see “Put UN Justice on Trial,” Aug 1998, “The End Game Is Near,” May 1996, “Defiant Serb General Ejected from Courtroom,” July 2011, Witness: Chance for “Perennially Troubled Region” (Balkans) to Become Model for Conflict Resolution Elsewhere, March 2012, and  “MY WARTIME DIARIES: VICTORS’ JUSTICE ON DISPLAY AT THE HAGUE”, March 2016).

ANOTHER COURT EJECTION IN 2011

This was not the first time Mladic was thrown out of the courtroom by Judge Orie. The two have been feuding throughout the trial. In July 2011, when this case opened, the Serb General sounded just as defiant as he was today at the end of his long court ordeal (see “Defiant Serb General Ejected from Courtroom,” July 2011),  Here’s a video clip from that 2011 court hearing:


A MOCKERY OF JUSTICE

The case against Mladic, 74, was the last for the UN War Crimes Tribunal to pass a verdict on. The conviction is likely to fuel even more resentment in Serbia against the West. Of the 161 individuals indicted by the ICTY, 94 were ethnic Serbs, compared to 29 Croats, nine Albanians and nine “Bosniaks” (a nationality Washington invented after splitting up former Yugoslavia).

Only a handful of Serbs, including politician Milan Milutinovic, General Momcilo Perisic and Yugoslav army captain Miroslav Radic, were acquitted by the tribunal, compared to well over a dozen defendants of other nationalities.

BIGGEST WAR CRIMINALS STILL FREE

But the greatest miscarriage of justice is that the biggest villains, the ones who pulled the strings of their puppets who caused the Balkan wars of the 1990s, and who later on led the 78-day long bombing of Serbia by NATO in 1999, are still at large (see NATO WAR AGAINST SERBIA – 15 YEARS LATER: WHY? – https://wp.me/p3QU1S-eA, March 2014).

Here are some of them:

Victors’ justice on display at the Hague? You betcha. As Solon (a Greek philosopher – c.630 BC- c.555 BC) noted some 28 centuries ago:

“Laws are like spider webs. If some poor weak creature comes up against them – it is caught. But the bigger one can break through and get away.” (Solon)

As long as these criminals are free to roam the earth, the UN War Crimes Tribunal is nothing but a “Kangaroo Court.” Just as the Nazi and the Soviet political courts were.

UPDATE NOV 22, 2017
Reactions to the Mladic verdict…

MLADIC’S CONVICTION WAS A FORGONE CONCLUSION

“The NATO powers have had their show trial” (Bosnitch)

a good video interview to watch:

The general was declared a war criminal by the NATO powers even before the court was formed, so it is clear that he was “determined” to be found guilty in any case, journalist and political analyst John Bosnitch told RT.
RT: Is this a verdict that you anticipated?
John Bosnitch: This verdict was anticipated even before the court was formed. During the civil war in Bosnia, the European powers, which were backing the Muslim and the Croat side, were calling General Ratko Mladic a war criminal even before the court was formed to try him. He was never given a presumption of innocence even from the first day.
RT: Mladic was accused of crimes against humanity. This is a very high-profile case. Are you confident that all of those who committed such crimes during the war in Yugoslavia have been brought before the tribunal?
JB: The point is that the tribunal was a one-sided tool of the NATO powers. The purpose of the tribunal was to find one side guilty, and that was the Serbian side, because they were accused of being war criminals long before the court was formed.
 
There is no surprise about the way it was done. What is surprising is that anyone, anywhere expected even the slightest chance that General Mladic might be acquitted… The NATO powers have had their show trial; we have had the media reports upon it.

VERDICT: DANGEROUS PRECEDENT FOR FUTURE US INTERVENTIONS

This verdict also creates a potentially dangerous precedent as it could be used by the US to justify future invasions launched without any internationally approved mandate, international affairs commentator Marko Gasic told RT.
“This verdict was necessary primarily for the US, to find someone guilty of genocide is to create yourself a false moral mandate to stop future supposed genocides,” he said. “On the basis of this verdict, the USA will give itself a right to attack anywhere, anytime with its acolytes to [defend] its own interests.”
Gasic also said that the Mladic trial was “a tribunal financed by the US, Saudi Arabia and George Soros.” According to Gasic, it had only one purpose: “to achieve the prosecution of a targeted nation – the Serbian nation.”

BILL CLINTON DEMANDED 5,000 BOSNIAN MUSLIM DEAD BEFORE INTERVENING MILITARILY – Bosnian Muslim President in April 1993

Marko Gasic [@3:30 min of the video]: “In April 1993, Bosnian Muslim president Alija Izetbegovic said he had been told by Bill Clinton he needed 5,000 dead Muslims in order to have a pretext or an excuse for a military intervention, i.e., bombing of the local Serbs.”

“And that way, America would get its first mandate to bomb abroad without a UN authorization, or indeed, without anybody’s authorization.”

UPDATE NOV 23, 2017

WHO SAYS THERE IS NO DEATH PENALTY AT THE HAGUE?

International War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague Claims Its Sixth Victim – March 11, 2006

The inhumane treatment of General Mladic at his sentencing by the chief Dutch judge Alphonse Orrie reminded this writer of a Truth in Media editorial he penned nearly 12 years ago, when Slobodan Milosevic became the 6th Serb defendant to die behind bars of the Hague War Crimes Tribunal.

Here’s the opening paragraph from that piece. You can read and see the rest if you click on the link that follows.

PUT THE UN JUSTICE ON TRIAL

“SCOTTSDALE, Mar 11, 2006 – Who says there’s no death penalty at the Hague? (the International War Crimes Tribunal). This morning, the sixth prisoner of this kangaroo court was found dead in his cell – Slobodan Milosevic, the notorious former president of Serbia a.k.a. Yugoslavia a.k.a. Serbia and Montenegro. Only five days ago, Milan Babic, the former president of the Serbian Republic of Krajina (in today’s Croatia) was also found dead in his cell. Suicide was alleged. The cause of death in Milosevic’s case is not known at the present time.

A coincidence? Sure. What are the odds of six men, all Serbs (!), dying in prison? Actuaries would have a field day calculating them. Babic, for example, was only 50. Milosevic himself was only 64. Just last week, the Court refused his request for medical treatment in Russia where specialists were waiting to treat his heart ailment.

Alive, Milosevic, with his quick wit and sharp tongue representing himself in the court, was a threat to everyone in the New World Order established – from Bill Clinton on down. He simply knew too much and was ready to talk. In fact, he was awaiting the court’s ruling on his request to subpoena Clinton as witness.

Borislav Milosevic, former Yugoslav ambassador to Russia who lives in Moscow, blamed the U.N. tribunal for causing his brother’s death by refusing him medical treatment in Russia.

”All responsibility for this lies on the shoulders of the international tribunal. He asked for treatment several months ago, they knew this,” he told The Associated Press. ”They drove him to this as they didn’t want to let him out alive.”

Milosevic asked the court last December to let him go to Moscow for treatment. But the tribunal refused, despite assurances from the Russian authorities that the former Yugoslav leader would return to the Netherlands to finish his trial.”

For more, see…
http://www.truthinmedia.org/ Bulletins2006/Milosevic.html

ALTZAR: Just like General Mladic, I might add. Before his sentencing, Mladic had also asked to go Russia for medical treatment for his extremely high blood pressure. The Russian government guaranteed his return to the Hague after the treatment. The court refused. Just like they treated Milosevic.

Will Mladic become the next victim of the UN Tribunal’s inhumanity?


UPDATE 2 – NOV 23, 2017

SOME REACTIONS TO MY MLADIC SENTENCING POST

From a Russian FB friend – Nov 23, 2017

Аля Мусина : Как жаль что в то время Россия была слабой. Наши руководители предали братьев- сербов и допустили разрушение такой прекрасной страны Югославии. Но все же мы хоть немного но сделали. Остается тайной, кто предложил перебросить российский миротворческий батальон, который в тот момент был в Боснии и приказал десантникам пройти маршем 600 километров и занять аэродром в Косово. Колонна из 200 солдат, которым предстояло остановить НАТО.

FB TRANSLATION: It’s a shame that Russia was weak at that time. Our leaders have betrayed the Serb brothers and have allowed the destruction of such a beautiful country of Yugoslavia. But still, we did a little bit. It remains a mystery who proposed to deploy a Russian peacekeeping battalion, who was in Bosnia at that time and ordered the desantnikam to March 600 kilometres and to occupy an airfield in kosovo. A convoy of 200 soldiers to be stopped by NATO.

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic You are well informed, Аля Мусина. I met the commander of that Russian battalion in Sarajevo in July 1994 when I worked in Bosnia as a war correspondent. I did not want to photograph anyone for security reasons. But here’s a shot of downtown Sarajevo I took from the Serb front lines which were close the positions of that Russian peacekeeping unit.

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic The day before, I spent nearly the entire day with General Mladic and his top officers and their HQ in Han Pijesak. This is a photo someone took of us just before we broke for lunch in the mess hall. The chef served an excellent grilled trout.

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic Here’s an excerpt from that story: “I noticed that [Serb commander, name withheld] was wearing a small Serbian flag-type pin attached to his T-shirt just above his heart. “I got the pin from a Russian officer,” he said. “Then I just turned it upside down.” Everybody laughed (the Russian flag consists of white-blue-red horizontal stripes; the Serbian flag of red-blue-white stripes – see below).

As if guessing my thoughts, the Serb commander went on to talk about the many unsung heroes who have served under him on the Trebevic front. Some of them were Muslims and Croats, he said. They had escaped from the city below and joined the Serb forces. “One of them stepped on a land mine, had a leg amputated below the ankle, and he still returned to the front to fight for us,” he said. – for more, see.. https://www.truthinmedia.org/ Vignettes/Bosnia-diary-94.html

In July 1994, while I was working as a war correspondent in Bosnia, I spent nearly an entire day with General Mladic and his top officers and their HQ in Han Pijesak. This is a photo someone took of us just before we broke for lunch in the mess hall. The chef served an excellent grilled trout.

Σοφια Καρας: He is a great Hero, but Europeans are so stupid they did not realize that he was fighting for all White European Peoples, not just for Serbians, now , let them die from islam in their cities daily the islamists are killing them in France, Germany, in Barcelona in Amsterdam, Bruxelles, Nice, all these countries who bombed Serbia now their citizens are daily being killed by islam!

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic to ΣΣοφια Καρας: Yes. He and I spent a long time talking about the geopolitical significance of the war he and the Serb army were fighting. He was quite aware of what you are saying here. Alas, the Bosnian Serb political leadership thought they could negotiate with the US and NATO crocodile. Which is how and why the crocodile ate them up in the end.

Σοφια Καρας: I always said that the Islamization of Europe initiated by the establishment of this fake nationality of “bosniaks” then it continued with another fake nation that of Kossovo, but this was only the beginning in Greece they established (this communist regime that runs the country now) the Sharia Law, the plan is to create a new Islamic State by cutting pieces from all three countries Greece, Bulgaria and Turkey.

In France, 50% of the population is already islam but they don’t want to say that, in London they elected Islamic Mayor, and in Germany they are so scared to make new election because the first antislamic party AFD in Europe, will gain higher %. The jewish controlled Networks called “fascists and Nazists” those Europeans especially Eastern and Central Europeans who wish to stay Humans and away of Islam, and they allegedly claim that Democracy and Human Rights is Islam and their so called refugees islamists

Please tell me how come all so called refugees in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia are ONLY ISLAMISTS? Arent they other populations suffering in this planet?

The Kallergi Plan is very old and is to create a new shitty color race out of White Race which is to be extincted. We have nothing against Muslims but they have 80 nations on this planet why they need ours too? As far as the media that they consider Europeans and Americans who deny islamization undemocratic but islam is democratic, well, then why dont’ they send them back to this Democratic paradise of …Saudi Arabia! This is the Model Of Islam, Saudi Arabia!

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: Indeed. Also see THEY BROUGHT JIHAD INTO EUROPE, WILL WE LET THEM BRING IT TO AMERICA? – https://wp.me/p3QU1S-1A4

MORE REACTIONS TO MY POST ABOUT GENERAL MLADIC SENTENCING

From a Dutch friend Wouter Wijnaendts – Nov 24, 2017

Wouter Wijnaendts: “I do fully agree with the comments of your Greek friend and as I wrote the real criminals are still walking free out there. The left liberal parties in Europe let the Trojan Horse in or ‘feeding the crocodile’.

It is already going wrong and it will become worse, no doubt about it. Germany is trembling to make new election and the fact that the AfD could gain a higher percentage of votes. In any case, in The Netherlands, the Dutch government seems to take tougher action against Islam.

Minister Blok banned controversial Iman Fawaz Jneid from the Hague neighborhoods of Transvaal and Schilderswijk last week. He is not allowed to preach in and around the bookstore on Cilliersstraat for a period of six months.

According to Blok, the imam preaches an intolerant message that contributes to the radicalization of young people. The Hague mayor Pauline Krikke pushed for this area ban, according to the broadcaster. In their statement the Islamic organizations write that the imam has never been convicted of incitement or spreading hatred. They call the area ban a selective anti-Islam measure that restricts the rights and freedoms of the Dutch Muslim.

“Such a suppressive measure does not contribute to maintaining or promoting a harmonious society. To push dissidents into the corner through shaky legislation is counterproductive”, they write.

Fawaz Jneid was previously sent away from the As-Soennah mosque in The Hague for conducting illegal marriages, the broadcaster reports. He also caused controversy by cursing murdered film maker Theo van Gogh and politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

The imam responded to the area ban against him last week. “This is the second step in the war against Salafism in The Netherlands”, he said to NOS. He also said that he is against extremism and that he often stops young people from going to Syria.

On November 2, this Iman lost a legal proceeding in court, were he tried to abolish the ban of six months of Minister Blok. In vain. Anyways he now uses Facebook to continue with his hate preaches and has more than 4000 followers.

For more see: https://nltimes.nl/2017/08/21/ islamic-organizations- criticize-justice-mins-ban- controversial-imam

I liked the remark, that Muslims have 80 nations on this planet, so why they need ours too?” [Wouter Wijnaendts, Dutch cartoons also enclosed].

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: I liked the cartoons. “Father of a nation” may be a bit too much, but the Kangaroo Court has certainly made Mladic into a martyr in Bosnia. Ditto re. Karadzic.

As a matter of fact, at the request of that Greek lady whose comments inspired you to write this (Sophia Karas), I will be posting profiles of all major wartime leaders – Milosevic, Karadzic, Mladic, Perisic – and all major foreign ambassadors in Belgrade – all of whom I had met with a number of times during the war. So stand by for that…

Bob Altzar Djurdjevic: During our noontime hike today, I told Elizabeth about your Imam story. She was appalled though not surprised.

I also said, that “it is regrettable that now the Dutch authorities have to resort to denying one of its citizens freedom of speech. If this imam’s preaching was indeed inciting riots and violence, why didn’t just arrest him and throw him in jail, instead of putting a muzzle on him for 6 months and making him look like a martyr to his followers?”

To me, that seems pretty stupid and shortsighted.

As for the general assault by the New World Order on Europe and European cultures, you may recall that I warned about that nearly 20 years ago in this column, among others (see (A BEAR IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, 1998 – http://www.truthinmedia.org/ Columns/chronicles-dec98.html) . And I predicted that forced immigration will be one of the most destructive weapons the globalists would use against Europe. The Euro being another one (also see… €URO WAS DOOMED FROM THE START, EVEN BEFORE ITS BIRTH, July 2015 – https://wp.me/p3QU1S-11x).

EPILOGUE BY THE AUTHOR: ABOUT MY WARTIME DIARIES

I spent over 12 years covering the Balkans wars and conflicts as an independent journalist (1989-2002). Over 140,000 people lost their lives, and over 4 million were forced to flee their homes during that time. Because the wars were largely incited by foreign powers, more specifically – the United States and Great Britain.

Why?

So they could fill the political vacuum in Yugoslavia created by the collapse of the Soviet Union (1991). And then co-opt most of the Balkans nations into NATO.  But to do that, they first had to create a problem to which the ultimate solution would be a NATO takeover.

During my work as a war correspondent, I met with many of the major players is this tragedy in which over 140,000 people lost their lives, and over 4 million were forced to flee their homes. The major protagonists included top statesmen, army chiefs, high-level diplomats of the U.S., Britain, France, Canada, Russia and Belgium, and literally hundreds of other individuals I had come across on the front lines as well as in the boardrooms. hawthorne-sophia

As always, I kept careful and copious notes about these conversations and events I witnessed. After each of those field trips to the Balkans, I would file a copy of my wartime diary with the Chief Archivist of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University in California. That’s just in case something happened to me. But my stipulation was that my diaries may not be available for public viewing for a period of at least five years after the war’s end. I did not want my conversations with principals in this war drama to affect in any way the outcome of the war or the subsequent war crimes trials at the Hague.

Well, now that it has been over 20 years since the end of the Bosnian war, and that all of the Hague trials are just about over, I have decided to make my four most important diaries public.  They can be accessed as PDFs by clicking on the following title pages.

LET’S DUMP TWITTER

TWITTER DUMPS RT, SPUTNIK ADVERTISING CITING “ELECTION INTERFERENCE”

Final nail in free speech coffin in America as Russia’s retaliation expected

Twitter announced to day that it is banning RT and another Russian news outlet, Sputnik, from placing any advertisements. Twitter cited alleged election interference “on behalf of the Russian government” as the reason.

And who did the alleging?

The “the US intelligence community,” according to the Twitter release. “which is not something we want on Twitter.” 

RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan commented on Twitter’s decision, saying it was “highly regrettable” and could serve as a precursor to retaliatory measures towards US media.

Revealed: How Twitter pushed RT to spend big on 2016 US election

I never thought that Twitter is under the control of the US security services – it seemed like a conspiracy theory. But now Twitter appears to have admitted it,” Simonyan told RIA Novosti news agency. “This is highly regrettable. It is particularly regrettable that now US media operating in Russia will feel the tender response of the Russian authorities.”

Simonyan earlier poste Twitter social network’s own pitch for an RT advertising campaign ahead of last year’s election, in which Twitter said that the news site would provide an “unbiased point view of the US Elections with an edge.”

“Hope Jack Dorsey [Twitter CEO] won’t forget to tell Congress how Twitter pitched RT to spend big $$s on US election ad campaign,” tweeted Simonyan.

For more, see… https://on.rt.com/8qph

I QUIT TWITTER MONTHS AGO! WILL YOU JOIN ME?

I never did like Twitter. Maybe it was because it was meant for people who can only put one or two sentences together (140 character limit). [SNIP – I had just reached that Twitter limit]

Or maybe it was because Hollywood and the Washington politicians loved it. (Back to speaking in sound bites).

But when I really started to hate it to the point of deleting my Twitter account was when I realized that Twitter is just the tool of the New World Order “elite.” In March of 2016, they censored some of my posts (see TWITTER CENSORSHIP – https://www.facebook.com/groups/truthinmedia.org/permalink/834223520057596/).  And in July 2016, Twitter tried to suppress the Wikileaks release of the damning DNC/Hillary emails (among other LAMESTREAM MEDIA, MAJOR INTERNET COMPANIES, COLLUDE TO SUPPRESS THE NEWS OF DNC TRYING TO RIG DEMOCRATIC PRIMARIES IN HILLARY’S FAVOR – https://www.facebook.com/groups/439921809487771/).

So after the election was over, and Twitter and all the lamestream media were totally discredited, I quit Twitter and closer my account. I invite you to do the same. Because now you have yet another big reason to do it.

 

 

MY ELECTION 2016 FORECAST: TRUMP TO WIN ON NOV 8! One year later, I can only add one word: “REGRETTABLY” 

ON THIS DAY IN 2016… OCT 24

MY ELECTION FORECAST: TRUMP TO WIN ON NOV 8!

One year later, I can only add one word: “REGRETTABLY” 

One year ago today (Oct 24, 2016), Hillary looked invincible. With two weeks to go, “most polls project Hillary Clinton will thump Donald Trump on Nov. 8….” opined both the national and local pollsters.

“The rally continues for Clinton in national polls. In the four-way presidential race, Clinton holds an average lead of about six points, according to RealClearPolitics. An ABC poll over the weekend gave Clinton a 12-point national lead” (see https://goo.gl/ACyBef).

So you can imagine how shocking it was for most people, including the Truth in Media readers, to see my post the same day (Oct 24) in which I predicted that Donald Trump would win the election:

ELECTION FORECAST: OCTOBER 24, 2016 – “NEW WORLD ORDER SNAKES TO BE EXPELLED FROM AMERICA” – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1TK    

Perhaps even more stunning was the source of my forecast: “My Dreamtime Diary: A Stunning US Election Prediction in Three Dreams over Four Days (Oct 16-19, 2016)”

So can you blame those who shrugged it off and discounted my prediction?

Yet, the forecast did come true. Trump was elected president on Nov 8.

So what can I add to that a year later? Only one word: REGRETTABLY.

Regrettably, my prediction came true.

Regrettably, I ignored my own initial assessment of Trump as a “Trojan horse” published in February 2016 (see…  FEBRUARY 24, 2016 – “IS TRUMP ACTUALLY A “TROJAN HORSE?” – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1fl).

Regrettably, I was also conned by the man whom I had later dubbed as “DON THE CON,” “LIKE RONALD, LIKE DONALD”… PUPPETS ON A STRING (Israel’s – in Trump’s case), “WHITE HOUSE EUNUCH” (when he capitulated to Congress over Russia sanctions in early August), etc. 

Sometimes, it is wrong to be right for the wrong reasons. My forecast from a year ago fits that description.

HILLARY WOULD HAVE BEEN EVEN WORSE

But there is a silver lining. Her name is Hillary. This would have been even worse. Because she is a real criminal, not just corrupt like Trump.

Once again, I should have stayed true to my old principles, Such as… “ANYBODY BUT A DEMOCRAT OR A REPUBLICAN” (ALTZAR – 1992, 1996). Two decades ago, I penned this in my Washington Times column DEMO FARCE AND THE AMERICAN CENTURY – Washington Times – Nov 1996 – https://www.truthinmedia.org/Columns/DEMO%20FARCE.html:

“Fielding two horses from the same stable evidently suited the U.S. Establishment just fine. Election ’96 was a “demo farce!” The U.S. democracy is turning into a New World Order plutocracy.”

So Election 2016 was no different. The same plutocratic stable just fielded two different horses. The American voters were still given the same choices: BAD or WORSE.

Anybody but Democrat Republican pig trough

From My Dreamtime Diary: A Stunning US Election Prediction in Three Dreams over Four Days of This Month (Oct 16-19, 2016)

OCT 16: SHEEP & SNAKE DREAM

I had a dream on Oct 16 in which there was a sheep swimming in the pool that had a snake in its jaws. The sheep held it just behind the head. So the snake was powerless to harm the sheep.

And me, as I am also in the pool observing the scene. And feeling a bit apprehensive as I know the snake is poisonous.

Suddenly the sheep releases the snake. The snake swims away in terror with lightning speed toward the far end of the pool, slithers out and disappears out of sight.

I remember thinking in my dream, “wow, what an amazing speed. I had no idea snakes can be such fast swimmers.”

INTERPRETATION OF DREAM 1 – SHEEP AND SNAKE

Oct 26, 2016

I received this interpretation of the dream from my Spirit guides while meditating in the spa this morning…

Like Saint Patrick in Ireland, Trump and the American people (sheep) will drive away the snakes of the New World Order into their burrows on Nov 8, 2016

  • The SNAKE represents the banking and corporate powers that be of the New World Order, and their servants – Obama, Hillary and Bill Clinton, the Bush family and all other vassals who think of themselves as the “elite” of the ruling class. The SNAKE symbolizes duplicity, treachery, ruthlessness, emotional coldness and lack of empathy of the slimy reptilians.

sheeple

In my dream, the SHEEP overpowers the SNAKE. And yet it does not kill it.  Because SHEEP symbolizes gentleness, kindness and a sense of community. So the SHEEP releases the SNAKE from its deathly grip. Frightened to death, the SNAKE frantically swims as fast as it can to get away from the sheep and and pool (and ME, the observer, who is also in the pool).

TRUMP WILL WIN AND TOGETHER WITH AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL DRIVE AWAY THE NWO SNAKES

Which is good news. For, it means that on Nov 8, the American people will start to liberate themselves from the snakes of the New World Order and drive them away from our shores. Which will inspire the rest of the world to follow suit. Let us hope, bloodlessly all around.

DREAM 2 (Oct 18): HIGH TIDE LIFTS ALL BOATS, LONDON MEDIEVAL STREET MARKET – RETURN TO PEACE AND PASTORAL LIFE

SCENE 1: OLD CASTLE RUIN

In this dream, I am in London, England in medieval time. It is early morning. I am walking through a ruin of an old castle toward the ocean shore. I can feel the spray from the waves reaching my face through the openings in the castle walls.

“The tide must be coming,” I thought in my dream state. “That’s probably why the waves are so big and crashing close to the castle walls.”

When I look through the opening, I see that the beach and the land are very flat. Like the Thames river banks.

“Wonder if this is the high tide pushing up the Thames?” I was thinking.

SCENE 2: MEDIEVAL LONDON MARKET

In the next scene, I am back in town at what looks like a street market. Still in medieval London. The streets are paved with round cobblestones.

I am engaged in a happy banter with several women behind their fruit and veggie stalls. There is also a man, a customer like me, who joins the conversation. Based on his accent, I figure out that he must be from Manchester.

After telling my market friend about my through the castle to the beach this morning and seeing a high tide, I say to the man:

“You guys in Manchester probably don’t even know what a high tide is,” :-)Manchester is deep inland]

Everybody laughs. Everybody is happy.

INTERPRETATION OF DREAM 2 – HIGH TIDE AND STREET MARKET IN MEDIEVAL LONDON

Oct 18, 2016

At first, I thought, “guess another trip to London is in the cards. But why medieval London?,” I wondered.

Of course, I have had a number of past lifetimes in London. For example, as King Phillip II of Spain while married to Queen Mary I, Henry VIII’s Catholic daughter.  And I lived there as King James I and VI, when I inherited the crown of England and Ireland after Elizabeth I died without an heir. And in the 19th century, I was back there again as Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s Consort.

But the market scene and the happy banter with London commoners did not fit those royal lifetimes.

 * * *

DREAM 3 (Oct 19): BLISS IN TROPICAL PACIFIC, HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN

SCENE 1: SWIMMING, SNORKELING, SAILING IN THE OCEAN

I had a dream in which I was sailing, swimming and snorkeling somewhere in the tropics. The beaches are white sand. Water turquoise. The ocean warm. Maybe Tahiti? Or Northern Australia (Great Barrier Reef)? I am happy, having a great time playing in the ocean.

SCENE 2 – VIEWING THE SAME SCENERY FROM THE TOP DECK OF A CRUISE SHIP

In the next scene, I am now sailing on a huge cruise ship through the very same area where I had been swimming and snorkeling before. I am quite high above the ocean, looking down as if from a parasail.  It’s definitely a large ship.

I am leaning on a rail close to the bow and looking down into the ocean. But I cannot actually see all the way down to where the bow’s hull slices the waves, because I am so high up above it. I can see, however, that the captain is skillfully navigating around other small boats and snorkelers way down in the ocean.

Nobody seems to be perturbed that such a giant ship is sailing right past them through shallow waters. But I feel a bit of trepidation about what my reaction would have been if I were still snorkeling and then seeing this huge ship pass me by.

INTERPRETATION OF DREAM 3: HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN

This is the third dream in four days in which the element of WATER figured prominently. And it was INCREASING IN SIZE (pool –> river –> ocean), just like when I had my three “wet dreams” in August 2008 which guided me to move from Arizona to Maui.

Unlike in 2008, however, we are now at the starting gate of the Age of Aquarius. So it’s all about the Water element, it’s cleansing, suppleness, fluidity, flexibility.  And everything is beautiful, peaceful and serene.

Happy days are here again. Or will be… after Nov 8. Just as the happy days returned after the Great Depression.

SAUDI ARABIA SPURNS US SANCTIONS, SIGNS BILLION-DOLLAR BUSINESS DEALS DURING KING’S VISIT TO MOSCOW

A game-changing diplomatic move

SAUDI ARABIA SPURNS US SANCTIONS, SIGNS BILLION-DOLLAR BUSINESS DEALS DURING KING’S VISIT TO MOSCOW

Slap on the face of US diplomacy shows Washington’s waning global influence, rise of Russian power

But a wounded animal is the most dangerous

RT.COM: https://on.rt.com/8p2t

It was the first country the newly elected American president visited on his first foreign trip. It is the country that, along with Israel, owns and controls most of the US Congress not just the White Housel And now it is a country which has turned its back on its American vassals and has joined up with Russia in a slew of business deals signed during its king’s first visit to Moscow.

Spurning the US sanctions on Russia, which were supposed to punish not just Moscow, but also any country trading with Russia, the king of Saudi Arabia Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud met in Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin. It was  the first state visit to Russia by a reigning Saudi monarch.

MULTI BILLION DOLLAR DEALS SIGNED

Following the meeting, the two countries launched a joint energy investment fund worth $1 billion. The fund could include investments in natural gas projects and petrochemical plants.

Saudi state oil firm Saudi Aramco signed a deal with Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) and gas processing and petrochemicals company Sibur on joint projects in the area of oil refining.

The two countries also agreed to cooperate in nuclear energy, agriculture, information technology; trade, investments and social development.

“We have a vast potential for developing cooperation in nuclear power. Saudi Arabia plans to launch a major nuclear power program,” said Russian Energy Minister and Co-Chairman of the Russian-Saudi Intergovernmental Commission Aleksandr Novak.

“Nuclear power may become one of the basic sources and an extra catalyst for the development of various industries and innovation technologies in Saudi Arabia,” he added.

Relations between the two countries have reached a “fundamentally new level recently,” Novak said.

According to Novak, for the first time a substantial delegation from Saudi Arabia, including about 200 representatives and 85 CEOs of large companies has come to Russia.

“Eighty-five heads of the largest companies flew to Russia to establish links with Russian businesses and expand ties in all areas,” the minister said.

Vladimir Putin and King Salman are expected to focus on extending the commitment to cut crude oil output production, which has helped prop up oil prices.

Which is a 180-degree turn-about-face by Saudi Arabia. Less than three years ago, the Saudis fronted the USled Oil War against Russia which was supposed to bring Russia and the Ruble to its knees (see 2014 OIL WAR’S UTTER FAILURE – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2II). Now the opposite is happening.

SLAP ON THE FACE AND STAB IN THE BACK OF THE U.S.

So much for the US sanctions and the American influence in the world. Washington is losing friends and allies faster than a snake can shed its skin.

With Russia gradually picking off the strategic US “partners” (first Turkey, now Saudi), real or perceived American power is quickly waning. It won’t be long before the Ruble and the Yuan start to supplant the Dollar as a global trading currency. Or maybe we are already at that stage now?

More than any rhetoric out of Moscow or Being, this single gesture by the Saudi king has sent a message to the world – the US is no longer the boss. Washington’s unipolar world is crumbling.

And that’s good news both for the world and for the American people. Because our government has long stopped being “a government of the people, by the people and for the people.” It has become an enemy of the American people;

(see the Truth in Media series of reports AMERICA IS AT WAR WITH THE WORLD AND ITS PEOPLE, Sep 2015 -http://wp.me/p3QU1S-18C, and  – NEW WORLD ORDER UNMASKED, Jan 2015 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-N0).

Except…

WOUNDED ANIMAL THE MOST DANGEROUS

When is an animal the most dangerous?

When it is wounded, cornered and desperate. A wounded animal is the most dangerous when it is fighting for its last breath.

There is much to dislike about Saudi Arabia (human right abuses, brutal executions, lack of freedom, mistreatment of women…). But the fact that the US has been willing to swallow its pride and rhetoric about the virtues of democracy etc., and jump into bed with such an oppressive regime, speaks volumes about how important Saudi Arabia has been to Washington.

And now that Saudi Arabia has stabbed the US in the back, all that’s left is a wounded pride of a jilted oil whore.

Being spurned and betrayed by “friends and allies” is not a position the would-be masters of the world are used to. So look for Washington to become even more aggressive and more unpredictable in the near future.

So take cover instead of rejoicing.

Saudi King arrived in Moscow with 1,500 staff, golden escalator, gold-plated protective barriers and plush carpets

TRAVELING IN STYLE

Memories of Obama bowing before Saudi king

King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia brought a lavish entourage on his first state visit to Russia. As part of his latest trip he reportedly flew in 1,500 staff, plush carpets and gold plated protective barriers to Russia.

The 81-year-old monarch met President Vladimir Putin after his arrival in the Russian capital on Wednesday. He is expected to discuss trade and joint infrastructure projects with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Friday.

The Saudi Arabia head of state booked out both the Four Seasons Moscow and the Ritz Carlton in preparation for the discussions.

A premier room at the Four Seasons can cost upwards of $3,800, with the top Pozharsky Royal suite only available for booking on request.

Coinciding with King Salman bin Abdulaziz’s visit, the Ritz Carlton hotel, located just 1km from the Kremlin, shut down its entire car park until October 8. The facility has a daily charge of around $50 dollars per vehicle.

The Saudi royal’s entourage includes staff familiar with specific food preparations and how the monarch prefers his coffee. Reports suggest plush carpets were also brought in by Saudi officials to make the stay a comfortable one.

The House of Saud is estimated to be worth around $1.4 trillion, meaning King bin Abdulaziz has a vast fortune to dip into when travelling abroad.

The funds extend to a luxury planes, gold-plated protection and a customized escalator. While on a visit to Japan in March, the delegation of Saudi officials arrived on 10 aircraft.

Around 1,200 hotel rooms in Tokyo were reserved for the group during the stay, while some 500 limousines were also reportedly used on the four-day tour.

REMINDER: OBAMA BOWED BEFORE SAUDI KING

All this pomp and ceremony in Russia and the Saudis’ wooing of a new global partner to supplant the US influence in Arabia reminded this writer of an incident that happened in April 2009, during Obama’s first visit to Saudi Arabia.

In what was possibly the most embarrassing and ignominious moment for a President of the United States, ostensibly the most powerful nation on earth, Obama bowed before the (now late) Saudi king (see the photo).

Eight-and-a-half years later, it was the Saudi king that flew to Moscow in search of a more reliable partner than the US has been. So all this bowing and scraping by Obama was for naught. As was Trump’s glad-handing on his first overseas state visit in May of this year, also to Saudi Arabia.

LIKE NICHOLAS, LIKE DONALD… TRUMP NOW THE TARGET OF NEO-COMMUNIST MOB

WE ARE IN A SIMILAR SITUATION NOW AS RUSSIA WAS IN 1917; WILL THE OUTCOME BE THE SAME?

NEW GENERATION OF SAME BANKERS ARE FUNDING AND INCITING THE “AMERICAN NEO-COMMUNIST INSURRECTION” AS THEY DID THE “RUSSIAN COMMUNIST REVOLUTION”

LIKE JACOB SCHIFF IN 1917, SOROS IS THE FRONT MAN OF THE “HOUSE OF ROTHSCHILD”

History is repeating itself. Unfortunately. What the communist mob did to Russia in 1917, led my Lenin and Trotzky, and financed by the Rothschilds through Jacob Schiff, a New York banker, the neo-communist thugs financed by George Soros, another front man of the House of Rothschild, are trying to do in America – carry out an American Neo-Communist Insurrection (see (see “George Soros Funded by the House of Rothschild” – https://goo.gl/jDJ4gw).

Let me repeat – an American Neo-Communist Insurrection.

CommunistParty

And just like the Russian Tsar Nicholas II was their target one hundred years ago, now they are aiming to remove a democratically-elected American president from office.

Like Nicholas, like Donald…

So why has George Soros not been arrested and charged with treason and sedition under the 18 U.S. Code Chapter 115 – TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES? (and others – see below).

That’s the question the Attorney General Jeff Sessions should be answering. He should be investigating and arresting international criminals like Soros instead of wasting his department’s resources on chasing the Russian ghosts from the 2016 election.

That’s the question the Attorney General Jeff Sessions should be answering. He should be investigating these international criminals, and their domestic terrorists, instead of wasting his department’s resources on chasing the Russian ghosts from the 2016 election.

Meanwhile, Trump had better start taking his enemies head on.  Lest he wants to end up like Tsar Nicholas and his family.  God forbid.


TRUMP BLASTS BOTH SIDES IN CHARLOTTESVILLE RIOTS

The president seems to have regrown his “cojones” which he lost when he signed the new Russia sanctions legislation in early August. He was quite combative in a White House press conference on Aug 15 with a crowd of belligerent and disrespectful lamestream media attack dogs.

This Guardian video is a 3.5 min compilation of Donald Trump’s comments:

https://www.theguardian.com/global/video/2017/aug/15/trump-blames-both-sides-for-charlottesville-video

Screen Shot 2017-08-16 at 8.04.34 AM

Keep in mind that this London daily – the Guardian – as an “alt-left” liberal newspaper. So if you read their article after watching the video and hearing the president’s comments from his own mouth, you will see how such dishonorable media distort the news and package their lies and deceptions with omissions and false labels. Which is why I NEVER read their articles for news content, only for extreme “alt-left” views.

PROFESSIONAL TROUBLE-MAKERS IMPORTED TO CREATE CHAOS AND VIOLENCE, AGAIN JUST LIKE IN RUSSIA IN 1917

During the last year or so, there has been an overwhelming amount of evidence that the thugs who tried to disrupt the anti-Trump rallies and other public events across America were paid professional trouble makers. And the evidence points to George Soros as the Insurrectionist-in-Chief.

Take Maile Hampton, for example, aka KwameKahlo on Twitter. She is a self-described “Marxist Leninist.” And she has been seen and photographed at protests all over California during the Election 2016, and even in Mexico.

Here’s an excerpt from this story – ‘RENT-A-MOB’ ZEALOT CAUGHT RED-HANDED AT TRUMP RIOT – http://www.wnd.com/2016/06/rent-a-mobs-targeting-trump-rallies/

“In the span of only 10 days, Hampton appeared at multiple protests. She was at one against University of California, Davis, Chancellor Linda Katehi, then two days later appeared in Mexico protesting labor conditions for Mexican farm workers.

A week later, she was seen at the California State Capitol on behalf of the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (a former ACORN group), protesting in favor of increasing the minimum wage to $15 per hour.

Anti-Trump protesters in New York reportedly admitted they answered ads on Craigslist and were being paid to protest Trump.

Writing in the Daily Caller in March, Trump supporter Roger Stone said, “I learned most were from MoveOn or the Occupy movement … Several admitted answering a Craigslist ad paying $16 an hour for protesters.”

You can also see these ads on Craigslist in Wisconsin and in Washington (state) soliciting “women, students and minorities” to come and demonstrate at $15-$20 per hour.

NEO-COMMUNIST MOB BURN US FLAG WHILE CHANTING, “BURN BABY, BURN!”

In this video, filmed and published at the WND web site in April 2016, Maile Hampton was filmed in Burlingame, California, at another anti-Trump rally that turned violent, burning the American flag and screaming over a loudspeaker at reporters, “Bourgeois media, get the f–k out!”

http://www.wnd.com/2016/06/rent-a-mobs-targeting-trump-rallies/ [watch the video embedded in this story]

Up until now, we had been seeing such scenes – burning of American flags – mostly in overseas countries, typically by Islamic extremists. Well, now  such disgusting acts are being perpetrated by our domestic terrorists funded by Soros & Co.  Watch how they are also shoving and screaming obscenities and the reporter who was filming this event.

Worse, these “rent-a-mob” thugs are getting away with such animalistic behavior without any police intervention. Which makes the police also complicit in this Neo-Communist American Insurrection.


 

BERKELEY PROTESTS TURN VIOLENT

On Feb 1, 2017, anti-Trump protests at the University of California Berkeley campus also turned violent.  Here’s an excerpt from a CNN report…

“Black-clad protesters wearing masks threw commercial-grade fireworks and rocks at police. Some even hurled Molotov cocktails that ignited fires. They also smashed windows of the student union center on the Berkeley campus where the Yiannopoulos event was to be held.

The violent protesters tore down metal barriers, set fires near the campus bookstore and damaged the construction site of a new dorm. One woman wearing a red Trump hat was pepper sprayed in the face while being interviewed by CNN affiliate KGO. “

Here’s a video report filmed that night. Watch how an innocent bystander gets clubbed and beaten by these thugs.

[CNN report]


 

“THEY ARE FASCISTS,” SAYS YOUNG MAN, AN INNOCENT BYSTANDER WHO WAS BEATEN AT BERKELEY

Asked by cameraman filming this scene, “hey man, why are they attacking you? What did you say to them?”

The young man just shrugs and says, “Nothing. They are fascists. They are Antifa fascists.”

Actually, they were Neo-Communists, members of the Soros Red Brigade. Except that they wore black, like the fascists. Besides, what’s the difference? Fascists, communists… they all used the same violent methods to grab and hold on to power.

Here, you can watch this video for yourself…

Still, the police did not arrest any rioters that night. So back to their complicity.

THIS IS HOW RONALD REAGAN DEALT WITH BERKELEY HOOLIGANS IN 1969

By contrast, when similar protests broke out at Berkeley, a notoriously leftist “liberal” university, in May 1969, the aftermath was quite different. Back then, Ronald Regan was the California governor. Reagan would not pussyfoot around his enemies as Trump has been doing so far.

He declared a state of emergency and sent in 2,200 National Guard troops to “use whatever methods they choose” to restore order. And that’s what they did.

Over the next several days, police and troops arrested nearly 1,000 people, including 200 for felonies, while 500 were booked at the local jail.

And now, more trouble is brewing again in the Bay Area, with the politicians and the police again siding with the leftist Neo-Communists, while labeling the patriots trying to exercise free speech as “white supremacists.”


Here’s the latest example…

TROUBLE BREWING IN SAN FRANCISCO

THE NEWS: Following the violence last weekend at a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, San Francisco’s city, state and federal officials today sent a strong message to organizers of an alt-right rally planned for later this month at Crissy Field.

“No, you are not welcome in San Francisco,” Board of Supervisors president London Breed said. “You are not welcome here, don’t come to San Francisco, we are going to do everything we can to stop you.”

Breed today joined Mayor Ed Lee and police Chief Bill Scott in sending a letter to the National Park Service expressing “outrage” over its decision to grant a permit to the group “Patriot Prayer” for an Aug. 26 rally. The park service has jurisdiction over Crissy Field, which is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

SF Officials Seek To Pull Welcome Mat For Planned Alt-Right Rally At Crissy Field

 

 

ALTZAR COMMENT: So in other words, our “liberal” politicians are trying block free speech in this country on account of possible trouble which the violent Soros-financed Neo-Communist professional thugs are causing. And anybody who disagrees with their views is automatically called a “white supremacist” or a “neo-Nazi.”

And when the violence breaks out, it is also automatically blamed by them and the corrupt lamestream media on peaceful demonstrators who are simply exercising their right to have their voices heard, as guaranteed by the American Constitution.

So if the establishment politicians and the police side with the violent left-wing mobsters, what does that make the politicians?

CRIMINALS, of course. Who should be prosecuted locked up as co-conspirators for aiding and abetting the violent mobs in what is rapidly starting to look like a nationwide American Insurrection by the Neo-Commies.

SIMILARITIES BETWEEN RUSSIA 1917 AND AMERICA 2017 ARE UNMISTAKABLE

In short, history is repeating itself.  What the communist mob did to Russia in 1917, the neo-communist thugs financed by George Soros, another front man of the House of Rothschild, are trying to do in America – carry out an American Neo-Communist Insurrection.

Lenin and Trotzky were smuggled into Russia from abroad on Apr 16, 1917 and May 4, 1917 respectively, and financed by the Rothschilds through Jacob Schiff, a New York banker. Lenin and Trotzky, along with several hundred Jews from New York and Europe who arrived with them, were to raise hell and start a revolution. Which they did. And won.

And just like the Russian Tsar Nicholas II was their target one hundred years ago, now Soros and the House of Rothschilds are aiming to remove a democratically-elected American president from office (see “George Soros Funded by the House of Rothschild” – https://goo.gl/jDJ4gw).

Like Nicholas, like Donald…

So why has George Soros not been arrested and charged with treason and sedition under the 18 U.S. Code Chapter 115 – TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES?

 

 

That’s the question the Attorney General Jeff Sessions should be answering. He should be investigating these international criminals, and their domestic terrorists, instead of wasting his department’s resources on chasing the Russian ghosts from the 2016 election.

Here are some of the US Codes under which Soros & Co. could and should be charged:

18 USC : Sec’s: 1961.et seq RICO statutes; 2381 TREASON; 2383 Rebellion or Insurrection; ; 2384 Seditious conspiracy; 2385 Advocating the overthrow of government ; 871 Threat against the President and Successors; 2332b acts of terrorism transcending National Boundaries ; 2339b , A.B.C.D Providing Material Support to terrorists…Note : failure to provide Remedy by the Agent in Charge places hm in liability for 18 USC Sec 4 Misprision of Felony and 18 USC Sec 2382 Misprision of TREASON.

Meanwhile, Trump had better start taking his enemies head on.  Lest he wants to end up like Tsar Nicholas and his family.  God forbid.

ANTI-WHITE VIOLENT ORGIES ARE CONTINUING ACROSS THE COUNTRY

https://on.rt.com/8kch

The Antifa, BLM and other leftist groups claim to be against fascism yet behave like the Nazi thugs

Anti-white violent orgies are continuing across the country. On Saturday, it was Charlottesville. Yesterday, it was Seattle. Today, a senseless demolition of a 93-year old monument in Durham, NC, honoring Confederate soldiers grabbed the headlines.

These thugs cheered like sports fans when the statue crashed down to the ground and broke up. And they engaged in a senseless violence against an inanimate object, kicking the sculpture of the unknown Confederate soldier on the ground.

As I watched these images and the video clips from the Durham event, I could not help but think of the book-burning by similar organized Nazi mobs in Germany. They burned 20,000 books on that night. As if that could erase the history and the enlightenment which these books contained.

Bebelplatz_looking_South

The date was May 10, 1933. The place – the expansive Bebelplatz square in the heart of Berlin.

Take a look at these images taken today in Durham and in 1933 in Berlin. And then ask yourself…

WHAT IS THIS COUNTRY COMING TO?

The people who preach against Hate,
Are practicing Hate.
The people who say they are against Fascism,
Are acting like the Fascists.
The people who say they are against racism,
Are acting like the Racists.
The people who say Black Lives Matter (and they do, of course),
Are disrespecting other people’s lives.
The people who are in charge of enforcing the law and order,
Are actually abusing both and inciting violence.

Is that the kind of America we want?

Hell, no.

If our Founding Fathers were to see this country today, they’d be turning in their graves. For these so-called “leftists” and “liberals” are destroying the very things they fought for during the American Revolution.

So how do we get our country and our freedom back?


WHY WE SHOULD CARE TODAY ABOUT HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI

WE ARE IN A SIMILAR SITUATION NOW AS THE WORLD WAS IN THE 1930s

JUST SUBSTITUTE RUSSIA FOR GERMANY, AND CHINA FOR JAPAN, AND YOU WILL SEE WHY ZIONIST WARMONGERS ARE DRIVING US INTO ANOTHER WORLD CONFLICT

SOLUTION: TO ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE, WE MUST DO AWAY WITH WORLD RELIGIONS

Over the last five days, I have been publishing a series of stories and editorials on the subject of nuclear holocaust.

Why?

First, to honor the memory of the 225,000 human souls in Hiroshima and Nagasaki who were exterminated in a most brutal way, and worse of all, for no strategic military reason. The war had already been won. The clock was ticking before Japan would surrender. Scores of American military and political leaders said so at the time.

These poor souls, the vast majority civilians, women and children, died to satisfy the bloodthirsty lust for power by FDR, Truman and their Jewish-Zionist advisers.

The second, and perhaps a more important, reason I have been publishing now this series of articles on the nuclear holocaust is because I see that we are in a very similar situation now vis-a-vis Russia and China as we were in the 1930s regarding Germany and Japan. And those who do not learn from history are DOOMED to repeat it. At their peril, of course.

UPDATE NOV 27, 2017

This morning, I saw a picture of this little Japanese girl with a caption “photos not fit to publish in history books.” So I decided to add it to my August piece – WHY WE SHOULD CARE TODAY ABOUT HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI – https://wp.me/p3QU1S-2yJ. Because unless we look at such tragic faces of innocents, we will not understand the monstrosity of those in Washington and elsewhere who have visited such atrocities upon this plant in the name of the “land of the free.”

THE SAME TYPES OF PEOPLE IN THE US ARE HUNGERING FOR WAR NOW

I see the same types of people – the power-hungry, hate-filled rich Zionist Jews – leading the demonization of Russia today, just as their forefathers did it against Germany in the 1930s and against Russia before that (in 1917).  And as their forefathers’ forefathers did it against Russia at the start of the 20th century.

Considering that we now have a eunuch in the White House, surrounded by people who seem more loyal to the Zionist cause and geopolitical interests of Israel than to those of the US, there is plenty to worry about.

“There is no greater supporter of the Jewish people and the Jewish state than President Donald Trump”  (Netanyahu)

Trump Netanyahu Jews

Here’s what I said back in April:

“There is no doubt anymore… Donald Trump is the same as or worse than Ronald Reagan.  “Like Ronald, like Donald, Puppets on String” – my Oct 23, 2016 warning, repeated the day after the election – is sadly coming true.

The New World Order powers that be have surrounded our new president with their loyalists who have managed to turn him in less than three months.  Or maybe he has always been one of them.  After all, it took more than two years for the globalists in Reagan’s White House to turn the president to follow their agenda.”

Add to this explosive mix our corrupt Congress who are also spoiling for war, sticking Russia in the eye with their new sanctions, and we should realize it is time to sound the alarm before it is too late (see A SAD SURRENDER: TRUMP SIGNS THE RUSSIA SANCTIONS BILL,  and “LIKE RONALD, LIKE DONALD”… PUPPETS ON A STRING, Apr 16, 2017).

We’ve been there before, twice in the 20th century. And the results were disastrous.

20TH CENTURY HUMAN CARNAGE: 75 MILLION

post-6141-0-19714700-1380119816

No wonder some 75 million humans perished in the 20th century alone as a result of such policies, according to Gen. Alexander Lebed, a 1996 Russian presidential candidate and a decorated Russian war hero.


Strike 1: Removing and killing the Russian Tsar and his family

THE “RUSSIAN REVOLUTION” WAS NOT RUSSIAN AT ALL

The vast majority of revolutionary leaders were Jews, many imported from abroad

Let’s start at the beginning…

History books today refer to the tragic events in Russia after 1917 as the “Russian Revolution.” There was very little Russian about it. The Russian people were the VICTIMS of a foreign intervention and unconscionable brutality by the Bolsheviks.

Let’s start with Karl Marx, “the father of communism.”  “On both paternal and maternal sides Karl Marx was descended from rabbinical families” (Univ. Jew. Encyc., Vol.VII, p. 289). So Marx was ethnically Jewish. But his parents had converted to Lutheranism.

As for Lenin, the “father of the Russian revolution,” declassification of documents since the collapse of the Soviet Communist Party in 1991 has brought irrefutable proof that Lenin’s maternal great-grandfather was a shtetl Jew named Moshko Blank.

Col. John Beaty, author of the 1951 book “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW). explains the reasons for why a communist dictatorship suited the Khazar Jewish mentality.

In Russia and abroad in the late nineteenth century, many Khazar Jews had been attracted to the writings of Karl Marx (1818-1883), partly, it seems, because he was Jewish in origin.

The Marxist program of drastic controls, so repugnant to the free western mind, was no obstacle to the acceptance of Marxism by many Khazar Jews, for the Babylonian Talmud, under which they lived, had taught then to accept authoritarian dictation on everything from their immorality to their trade practices. Since the Talmud contained more than 12,000 controls, the regimentation of Marxism was acceptable— provided that the Khazar politician, like the Talmudic rabbis, exercised the power of dictatorship (emphasis added). 

Various elements of this restless aggressive minority nurtured the amazing quadruple aims:

Col. Beaty offers further proof that the “Russian Revolution” was anything but Russian.

In Lenin’s sealed train, “out of a list of 165 names published, 23 are Russian, 3 Georgian, 4 Armenian, 1 German, and 128 Jewish” (The Surrender of an Empire, Nesta H. Webster, Boswell Printing and Publishing Co. Ltd., London, 1931). [i.e., 78% were Jewish].

“At about the same time, Trotsky (Lev Bronshtein, Ukraine-born) arrived from the United States, followed by over 300 Jews from New York and joined up with the Bolshevik Party.”

According to the data furnished by the Soviet press, out of 556 important functionaries of the Bolshevik State. . . in 1918-1919, 17 Russians, 2 Ukrainians, 11 Armenians, 35 Letts, 15 Germans, 1 Hungarian,10 Georgians, 3 Poles, 3 Finns, 1 Karaim, 457 Jews (i.e., 82% were Jewish). (excerpt from “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW).

Thus under Lenin, whose birth-name was Ulianov, and whose racial antecedents are uncertain [actuallt his maternal grandfather was a ‘shtetl’ Jew named Moshko Blank], and under Leon Trotsky, a Jew, whose birth name was Lev Bronshtein, a small number of highly trained Jews from abroad, along with Russian Judaized Khazar and non-Jewish captives to the Marxian ideology, were able to make themselves masters of Russia.


Strike 2: Infiltrating both Soviet and American governments intent on inciting war against Germany

RULING RUSSIA WITH AN IRON FIST AND MACHINE GUN

As the decades passed by—after the fateful year 1917—Judaized Khazars kept a firm hand on the helm of the government in the occupied land of Russia. In due time they built a bureaucracy to their hearts‘ desire. The government – controlled Communist press ―issued numerous and violent denunciations of anti-Semitic episodes, either violence or discriminations.

Also, “in 1935 a court ruled that anti-semitism in Russia was a penal offense” (Univ. Jew Encyc., Vol. I, p. 386). Among top-flight leaders prominent in the middle of the twentieth century. Stalin, Kaganovich, Molotov, and Litvinoff all have Jewish blood, or are married to Jewesses (excerpt from “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW. Also see  “THE JEWS AND BOLSHEVISM”).

LIKE GERMANY, LIKE RUSSIA… PEACE ENTREATIES REBUFFED

Like Russia today, Germany made a number of overtures to the US government and Britain in the 1930s hoping for a peaceful solution.  But the intransigent warmongers would have none of it. The influential Jews in America and Britain were spoiling for blood. Only a total defeat of Germany would do so that they could rule the world.

And rule they did. Because they had infiltrated both the US and Russian (Soviet) governments. And were able to pull the strings of both against Germany.

FDR and his wife empower US leftists, many Zionists among them

When FDR took power in 1933, the leftist Zionists surrounded him with their people so that one of his first acts as president was the recognition of the Soviet Union. They also drove FDR to rebuff Germany’s overtures and join Britain in the war.

British PM neville Chamberlain later said that “America and the world Jews had forced England into the war.”

WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND

“Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him. “For all who draw the sword will die by the sword.” (Matthew, 26:52)

But those around FDR and Truman who thirsted for war and bloodshed were not men of the Bible, nor did they care about massacring millions of innocent civilians, including women and children.

By contrast, Christians, like FDR’s and Truman’s chief of staff, Admiral William Leahy, an Irish-American who was the nation’s first five-star fleet admiral, wrote in his diary on Aug 8, 1945 about such “barbarous” conduct of war:

“There is a certainty that it [the a-bomb] will in the future be developed by potential enemies and that it will probably be used against us.” He also objected to the a-bomb’s use for moral reasons: “In being the first to use it, we had adopted an ethical standard common to the      barbarians of the Dark Ages” (William D. Leahy, I Was There, pg. 441).

What goes around, comes around, as the saying goes. Indeed, there are now many other nations which possess such terrible weapons.  Like North Korea.

And then after WW II, these Zionist warmongers also pitted the US and USSR against each (Cold War). Some of them also worked as spies, passing the US nuclear secrets to the Soviets.

But their greatest accomplishment was probably that both the US and the USSR voted to establish the State of Israel in 1948 – the Zionists’ ultimate goal.

EMPHASIS ON “KILL” RATHER THAN “VICTORY”

It would appear, therefore, that one thing the “Semites” (both Jews and Muslims) have in common is a zeal to exterminate the “less worthy” humans of other persuasions – be it other Semites (respectively) or Christians. Theirs seems to be the philosophy of exclusion and separatism, not of inclusion and tolerance. Which is why they preach inclusion and tolerance in America – in the form of globalism and multiculturalism, while practicing exclusion and separatism while – by enslaving the Christians or other non-Semites.

War seems to have suited the purposes of the powerful Judaized Khazars element, dominant in the inner circles of the Democratic Party in America, Col. Beaty says. They regarded with enthusiasm the killing of as many as possible of the native stock Americans of English, Irish, Scotch, Welsh, German, Dutch, Scandinavian, Latin, and Slavic descent.

This non-Christian power bloc therefore endorsed “Unconditional Surrender” and produced the Morgenthau Plan, both of which were certain to stiffen and prolong the German resistance at the cost of many more American lives, and many more German lives, too.

Unfortunately, President Roosevelt became obsessed with the idea of killing Germans [and Japanese? Bob Dj.] rather than defeating Hitler [or Japan]. Perhaps taking his cue from his Commander-in-Chief—a term Roosevelt loved—General Mark Clark told American soldiers of the Fifth Army that, “it is open season on the Anzio bridgehead. There is no limit to the number of Germans you can kill” (New York Times, February 13, 1944).

Such a stress on “killing” or “kill” rather than on a “cause” or on “victory” is definitely at variance with the traditions of Western Christian civilization, Col. Beaty says.. It is also costly in the life blood of America, for “killing” is a two-edged sword. An enemy who would surrender in the face of certain defeat will fight on to the end when truculently promised a “killing”—and more Americans will die with him.  (excerpt from “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW).

20TH CENTURY HUMAN CARNAGE: 75 MILLION

post-6141-0-19714700-1380119816

No wonder some 75 million humans perished in the 20th century alone as a result of such policies, according to Gen. Alexander Lebed, a 1996 Russian presidential candidate and a decorated Russian war hero.


 

Strike 3: WILL THE 21ST CENTURY BE BETTER OR WORSE?

The answer to that question depends on whether or not we continue to allow evil people to use religion or ideology to divide us and set us against each other. And this leads to a nuclear holocaust, the carnage of the 20th century may look benign in comparison.

IS A NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST IN THE CARDS FOR 2017?

So is a nuclear holocaust in the cards for 2017? That’s what this Economist magazine cover implies (Dec 5, 2016).

The London Economist, which professes to be a “liberal” publication, actually expresses the financial and political views of the world ‘oligarchs’. The magazine is owned 50% by the English branch of the Rothschild family and the Agnelli Family. The remaining 50% is owned by private investors, editors and staff members.

ROTHSCHILDS’ WARMONGERS ARE AT IT AGAIN

Here they go again… Rothschilds’ warmongers in London are at it again. Stoking the fires of war. This time, with a larger nuclear mushroom with images of North Korean and US presidents in it on this Economist cover.

Date of the issue? Aug 5, 2017 – the day before the 72nd anniversary of the Hiroshima atom bomb that killed at least 140,000 people.

And then they have the audacity to use this GIF (right photo below) as a way to solicit money and subscriptions for their cause?

Have they no shame?

Shame? What’s that. To feel such emotions you have to have scruples.

There’s no such thing when it comes to these warmongers who have been stirring up trouble and financing wars and mass murder world over for over 100 years.

 

So what’s to be done to prevent that?

First, people have to learn the truth about root causes of the 20th century wars. That is the purpose of this series of articles about the nuclear holocaust in WW II.

Second, we need to become enlightened beings who refuse to be manipulated by lies and deceptions of the evil forces who seek to divide us. Like the Rothschilds, for example, and their Economist media flagship.

TO ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE, WE MUST DO AWAY WITH WORLD RELIGIONS

Religion has been the fuel of the world leaders’ quest for power and domination for several millennia.

Rabbis, mullahs, imams, popes, priests… they are all birds of the same feather. They preach hate instead of love. Even when they profess to preach love for one another.

Religion has been at the root of most wars in the last 2,000 years. Crusades, jihads, other “holy wars” – they are all tools by which the few devious ones manipulate the many ignorant ones.

We have to stop that vicious cycle. We must not allow them to keep on manipulating us into hating and fighting each other. There is only one God and each and every one us is a spark of the Divine. It’s what we do with it that makes us “good” of “bad. And it all starts with that knowledge and awareness.

We don’t need any rabbis, mullahs, imams, popes, priests… as intermediaries to be with God and to receive the Light of God.

Logic 101, therefore, would suggest…

TO ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE, WE MUST DO AWAY WITH WORLD RELIGIONS.

Will we have the wisdom and the courage to do so? The fate of our unborn children and of Mother Earth depends on it


 

UPDATE AUGUST 11, 2017

CHINA WILL PREVENT US FIRST STRIKE AGAINST NORTH KOREA, Government Official Daily

BEIJING TO WASHINGTON: 没有, Nyet, Nein… {NO WAY, JOSE)

That did not take long… for one of the major world powers to respond to US bullying of North Korea, and Pyongyang stupidly taking the bait. This morning, China said “NO” (没有, Nyet, Nein…) to the US first strike.

China will prevent the US and South Korea from carrying out strikes on North Korea and trying to overthrow the leadership there, but will remain neutral if Pyongyang launches missiles at American targets first, the state-run Global Times said today.

“IT ONLY TOOK 2 HANDGUN BULLETS TO START WORLD WAR I” (ALTZAR)

Only yesterday, I replied as follows to one of my FB readers who thought we could get away with it scot-free after bombing North Korea to smithereens:\

“I can’t believe that an intelligent and obviously well-informed man as you are would believe such nonsense – that the US could just obliterate a country with nuclear strikes, and the world would just sit and watch? It took only 2 handgun bullets in Sarajevo to start World War I, remember?”

CHINA SENDING ITS SHIPS IN RESPONSE TO ‘US PROVOCATION’ IN SOUTH CHINA SEA

Meanwhile, the US is continuing to poke its finger into China’s eyes, not just North Korea’s. Two days ago, the US Navy sailed the ‘USS John S. McCain’ (no relations to our “fraud hero”) past an island in the disputed Spratly chain in the South China Sea, US officials told media. It’s the third mission to challenge China’s claim on the territory under the Trump administration.

Again, China’s response was swift and furious.

“The Chinese army immediately sent warships (to the area) in accordance with the law to implement the identification of the US ship and warn it off,” the Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson said yesterday.

“The US provocation also forced the Chinese side to take measures to further enhance the national defense capability,” the ministry added.

A SAD SURRENDER: TRUMP SIGNS THE RUSSIA SANCTIONS BILL

UPDATE AUG 19, 2017

“THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY IS OVER,” BANNON

Donald Trump’s surrender to the forces of the New World Order is now complete. The last of the “Trump conservative Mohicans”, a lightning rod who infuriated the “liberals” like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and other George Soros neo-commies, has left the White House.  But Steve Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist until yesterday, did not leave quietly.

“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” Bannon said Friday (Aug 18) to the Weekly Standard, a conservative newspaper, shortly after confirming his departure.

“We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.” (Steve Bannon: ‘The Trump Presidency That We Fought For, and Won, Is Over.’ http://tws.io/2vSOD2F)

THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY DIED ON AUG 2, THE DAY HE SIGNED RUSSIA SANCTIONS BILL

Not to split hairs, but actually the Trump presidency died on Aug 2, the day the president signed the Russia sanctions bill, which he himself said was unconstitutional as he was signing it (see A SAD SURRENDER – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2sR).

Here’s what the Truth in Media said on Aug 2:

TRUMP HAS NOW PROVEN HE IS ONE OF “THEM” AND, THEREFORE, AGAINST “US”

“We now have a lame duck president walking with a tail between his legs… a White House Eunuch” (Truth in Media, Aug 2, 2017)

Guess that was too much to hope for – that a New York multibillionaire would have the balls to take on his peers, and act as a true populist president in the interest of the American people. Trump has now proven that he is one of “them” and against “us,” the American people.

Shame on you, Donald Trump! The whole world can see now that you are just another impotent eunuch serving the New World Order’s interests.”

The New World Order “deep state” now have Trump in their grip like a python, slowly squeezing the (political) life out of his presidency. If he is not impeached, he’ll be used by the NWO from now on as a useful idiot. Or as an actor who will pontificate on their behalf, as Ronald Reagan had done.

No surprise there. We had warned about such a possibility even before Trump was elected president, and again during the first 100 days of his presidency (“LIKE RONALD, LIKE DONALD”… PUPPETS ON A STRING”, Apr 16, 2017 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2eS, and “IF YOU CAN’T BEAT HIM, JOIN HIM… AND THEN SMOTHER HIM” Oct 23, 2016 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-21q).

BANNON ACTUALLY RESIGNED ON AUG 7

It would appear that Steve Bannon also saw the light in the same way as we did. According to Fox News (see the video below), Trump’s chief strategist actually submitted his resignation on Aug 7, five days after Trump’s sad surrender to our sold out Congress. But the Trump’s war of words with North Korea and Charlottesville events cause the White House to hold back on making it public until yesterday.

Also see this Fox News report… (just the first 4 minutes should suffice).

Among the senior advisers competing with Bannon in trying to shape Trump’s agenda, and his tone, were the president’s daughter, Ivanka, and son-in-law, Jared, and Steven Mnuchin, US Treasury secretary (all Jews, by the way). Bannon pointedly voiced criticism of those in the president’s sphere whom he considered to be globalists, or liberals (or both), and the president himself plainly bristled over the early attention that Bannon got from the press (including a Time magazine cover, which is said to have particularly irked Trump).

Yes. Just minutes ago (11:20 AM PDT), I read a dispatch from Washington that indeed, Donald Trump signed this morning the new Russia sanctions legislation into law (see https://on.rt.com/8jcz). And like every lame duck president with a tail between his legs, he added a lament naively that the American people would not notice his betrayal, and how he buckled under to the pressure of the New World Order warmongers:

Today, I have signed into law HR 3364, the ‘Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act.’ While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea, and Russia, this legislation is significantly flawed,” Trump said in a statement released by the White House.

In its haste to pass the legislation, Congress “included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions,” Trump said.

The biggest problem with the bill is that it “encroaches on the executive branch’s authority to negotiate,” which will make it harder for the US to strike good deals and will “drive China, Russia, and North Korea much closer together,” according to the president.

Well, whoopie-doo. If Trump really believes the sanctions are unconstitutional (as the Truth in Media also said last week), why did he sign them.

UPDATE AUG 3, 2017

OUR PATHETIC EUNUCH AT THE WHITE HOUSE IS ALL BLUSTER, NO BALLS

TRUMP, WHO SWORE “TO PRESERVE, PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION”, VIRTUALLY ENDS HIS PRESIDENCY BY SIGNING A BILL HE HIMSELF CALLS “UNCONSTITUTIONAL”

Russia’s Prime Minister: “New steps are to come, and they will ultimately aim to remove him from power”

The US establishment has fully outwitted Donald Trump and used his administration’s weakness to declare a fully-fledged economic war on Russia, Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev wrote last night on his Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Dmitry.Medvedev/posts/10154587161801851),

The “Trump administration has shown its total weakness by handing over executive power to Congress in the most humiliating way,”Medvedev wrote.

“This changes the power balance in US political circles,” Medvedev wrote, asserting that the US establishment’s end game is to remove Trump from office.

TRUMP SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY

The first six months of Donald Trump’s presidency have established one fact beyond doubt. He was still an outsider in the corrupt Washington swamp that he had promised to “drain.” The Congress has been thwart him from achieving his promises to the American people by throwing obstacles in his way every step of the way.

So there was no question from Trump’s viewpoint who his ENEMIES are. It is not Russia. It is not China. It is not India. Not even Iran.  It is our corrupt Congress.

Last week, this Congress who has been selling out the interests of the American people to their corporate sponsors for decades, passed a legislation that the Truth in Media immediately labeled as not only unconstitutional, but also destroys dozens of international laws. Yesterday, It is a declaration of GLOBAL DICTATORSHIP by the US.

Trump himself agreed with us and called the Russia sanctions bill unconstitutional. And yet he signed it nevertheless, surrendering to his enemies and abandoning his sworn duty “to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.”

In its haste to pass the legislation, Congress “included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions,” Trump said after he had signed the bill.

Which means that in feeble attempt to stay in office a bit longer Trump has decided to sleep with the enemy.

That’s treason all around. Our country is becoming an unconstitutional dictatorship of the murderous New World Order elite.

 MEDVEDEV’S PREDICTION: THEY WILL REMOVE HIM (TRUMP) FROM POWER

The American political elite, Medvedev said in his last night’s missive, is not interested in Trump’s pragmatic approach or the interests of US multinationals who spoke out against any new sanctions.

“New steps are to come, and they will ultimately aim to remove him from power. A non-systemic player has to be removed,” Medvedev underlined.

“This legislation is going to be harsher than the Jackson-Vanik amendment as it is overarching and cannot be lifted by a special presidential order without Congress’ approval. Thus, relations between Russia and the United States are going to be extremely tense regardless of Congress’ makeup and regardless of who is president,” Medvedev outlined.

In short, we now have our own White House eunuch. Trump is all bluster no balls. And “the American political elite,” as the Russian PM called them, are once again running the show.

And what a grim show it will be – starting with a declaration of a global trade war and repudiation of normal international laws and codes of conduct.

It does bring back memories of British PM Neville Chamberlain returning from a meeting with Hitler in Munich September 1938 and holding up the agreement which he called “PEACE IN OUR TIME.” And we all know what followed.

So we now have our own Chamberlain. His name is Trump. Question is – will we find another Churchill?
