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.

America’s vulgar and militaristic “culture”

D’EVOLUTION OF AMERICAN CULTURE

Oversexed, overweight and undernourished – spiritually and intellectually – masses led by beasts in priests’ clothing

The D’EVOLUTION cartoon in the header of this editorial was published as a Jan 2018 cover by a leading German magazine Der Spiegel. It makes a case that America is devolving – going backward, not forward. And I can add, the country has probably never been more polarized than it is now.

That’s a political view. But where politics go, culture can’t be far behind. And in some cases, culture has been actually leading the way – backward, appealing to our most base and primitive instincts.

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.

Toward the first anniversary of Trump’s presidency (Jan 20)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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? 🙂

UPDATE DEC 16, 2017

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”).

UPDATE DEC 18, 2017

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.
