Pompeo's Inner Neocon Comes Out

Politico's Article about Pompeo's Threats

Enter John Bolton, and his failed neocon proxy interventions on behalf of Israel, and Mike Pompeo, who now wants Iran to withdraw forces from Syria and give up on nuclear weapons forever.

To begin with, Syria INVITED Iran's fighters to come to Syria and fight against ISIS and al Nusra, both Sunni terrorist groups, both supported by the US, UK and Israel. This is Syria's decision and NOT Pompeo's, nor his nimrod boss Trump. So this demand is vacuous. If Syria wants Iran to leave, then that is Syria's decision and prerogative.

Secondly, the arrogance of the US, in the service of Israel and Netanyahu, is really surreal and extremely disappointing and pathetic, and not what you would expect from the "greatest democracy in the universe". Iran had passed all of the inspections examinations, as attested to by the IAEA under the supervision of the UN. How many of these Israel-firster neocons actually read these 10 reports?

But even when Iran complied, the US did NOT comply. Europe needs to band together and follow through with their blocking of US sanctions and not make the mistake of being bullied out of the deal. And Russia and China need to also support the EU in the mandate of Iran's nuclear program.

The US thinks it can use its crooked central bankers, which has bankrupted the US economy and loots the world's resources, to sanction the entire world. Well then, fine, let the US sanction the whole world, for that would mean by reciprocity that the world is sanctioning the US.

Somebody wake me up when the revolution starts ....

Nikki Haley

So Nikki Haley delivers her speech to the UNSC, after the IDF murdered 58 Palestinians on Palestinian land, and wounded another 2700.

And when the Palestinian representative, Riyad Monsour, begins his address, what does this glorious mouth-breather and AIPAC whore do? She walks out of the room.

If anyone does not recognize this act for what it is, an admission that the US is no longer the arbiter of peace talks that it has proclaimed to be in the last 40 years, then they are delusional.

If anyone does not recognize this act for what it is, an admission that the US is a dishonest enabler of Israeli war crimes, then they are delusional.

Nikki Haley, in her speech most likely prepared by AIPAC, said that the massacre was the fault of Hamas (and Iran !!!) and not the IDF bullets which were aimed and directed by Israel's willing executioners, I guess she did the job she was courted to do.

Trump's bank rollers were Sheldon Adelson, Bernie Marcus, and Paul Singer, and all 3 of these Zionist Jews ONLY care about Israel, even as they live and breathe in the USA and use their money here to craft a pro-Israel foreign policy, never mind what is good for the USA.

One day, there will be a revolution, and it will be bloody, and these scoundrels will be held to account, and their bank accounts will not be able to save them.

The rest of America needs to do some serious soul-searching and ask some poignant questions about the nature of their representation, or serious lack thereof.

The USA is dead, and Israel is the dubious cancer that has delivered the coup de grace.

Hamas Did It

Press TV Article with Richard Becker

Israeli shot dead 58 Palestinians and wounded another 2700 approximately yesterday, as Mnuchin , Ivanka , Jared , Friedman and Netanyahu christened the new US Embassy in Jerusalem. Hooray for creating facts on the ground.

But the response from the White House, that Israel has a "right to defend its borders" is really sad, pathetic and surreal.

And now today Nikki Haley is saying at the UNSC that it really wasn't Israel that killed and wounded these Palestinians, that it was Hamas. It really wasn't IDF bullets that killed rock-throwers and kite-fliers, that it was Hamas. And the "clashes" that were reported in the western "press" is an interesting choice of wording, since NO Israelis were injured. Clashes signify both parties absorbing damage. This was nothing of the sort. This was a brutal, cold-blooded, and unequivocal massacre perpetrated by Israel against a defenseless population.

Some of the articles reported that Palestinians "died". Wow, what deliberate distortion in the US presses that, ah hemm, are favorable to Israel whenever they report on this issue.

I guess the Palestinian leadership lined up a bunch of cancer patients and other terminally-ill patients, and I guess they all just happened to fall to the ground dead from old age or pre-existing medical conditions, while IDF bullets came their way.

What a blasphemous and insulting way to whitewash Israeli war crimes.

How does Nikki Haley or Trump or Jared or Ivanka explain away the Israeli MK's comments that the IDF has enough bullets for "everyone" in Gaza. Perhaps we will hear of Hamas having enough Palestinians for each one of these immoral IDF bullets ....

Sickening display by Israel and the US. Kudos to Turkey and South Africa for recalling their ambassadors. The rest of the world needs to do the same.

American Vassals

French Minister's Comments

So Iran complied, verified by all 10 IAEA reports. Iran had already shipped out 23,000 of enriched uranium leaving insufficient amounts for a single bomb. Iran concrete shut its plutonium breeder and dismantled 2/3 of its centrifuges .... all of which has been verified.

BUT Trump said the deal was bad, that it was the worst deal in the history of the universe.

Then McMaster gets fired and Bolton takes his job. John Bolton has been sabre rattling against Iran since mid 2000's, and he has been wrong on EVERY pronouncement. Must be nice to be a neocon in American politics and be wrong about EVERYTHING and still have a platform with which to influence the gullible and start illegal wars for Israel's benefit.

Netanyahu gives his ridiculous presentation, which has been torn apart by intelligence analysts, and yet a week later, Trump withdraws from the JCPOA.

Then, the US demands that sanctions on Iran be imposed once again, and then demands that all of the EU abide by those sanctions. That is real chutzpah. The US doesn't like the game so it takes its ball, made in Israel, and goes home. And when it gets home it tells everybody else that the same game can't be played by anyone else ...

I am glad to see this minister from France stand up and say "Arretez".

France, Germany, the UK, Russia and China need to hold a follow-up meeting with Iran and give promises that as long as Iran continues to pass IAEA inspections and lives up to the terms of the JCPOA, that they will not honor America's illegal sanctions. The US likes to single out states, but if these nations stand together, the US will lose this Israeli-directed hijacking of international diplomacy.

And then a day after the US withdraws, Israel bombed some more targets inside Syria that they identified as Iranian bases. But the Iranians were invited by Assad and the Russians were invited by Assad. The US sponsors al Nusra, a terrorist group, as does Israel, so US and Israeli interference is not welcome inside Syria's civil war, but then after 2 bombing campaigns in Syria (which is illegal under international law, not that Israel nor the US cares one bit) Israel then claims to be attacked by Iran in the Golan, which is NOT Israeli territory, and then unleashes a third barrage of missiles from Lebanese airspace (another violation of international law) , all the while sniping unarmed Palestinians on Palestinian land (another violation of international law).

But the Trumpkins cheered him on yesterday in Indiana, where a few states away he just neutered all of the US soybean farmers with his trade stance with China. The trumptards cheered for him while he is pulling his pants down and bending over for Adelson and Netanyahu.

As an independent who leans libertarian, this presidency has been the most disgusting and disappointing in my lifetime, and perhaps in US history.

Pompeo Is Israel's Champion

USA Today Article

So Tillerson and McMaster were not hawkish enough on Iran and Syria, so Trump the magnificent fires these level-headed people and replaces them with John Bolton, the quintessential neocon (one of the original advocates for invading Iraq in 2003 even though Iraq had NO WMD's, NO connections to al queda or 911, all because Doug Feith was using Israeli estimates on intelligence instead of US estimates .... (Pentagon Inspector General Report)) and now Pompeo, whose first visit had him hugging a war criminal in Netanyahu and talking tough on Iran. Israel is in the middle of a deliberate campaign of shooting unarmed Palestinian protesters on THEIR OWN LAND and then having liars like Nikki Haley saying at the UN that it is Hamas, and NOT Israeli bullets, that are killing these people. Everyone turn their head and not see anything ...

As soon as these two Israel-firsters join Team Trump, we have a false flag chemical attack in Syria, which Russia warned about a month before it happened, Israel sending missiles into Syria, the US, UK, and France sending their missiles into Syria, and after the delegation that just visited the ICC in the Hague, the facts are exactly as the warning given by the Russians. Big surprise. Now, the US is going to scuttle the JCPOA because Netanyahu (under investigation for corruption and already guilty of being an absolute soulless, demonic anti-human) wants it.

Here was my original suspicion when Adelson's Las Vegas newspaper was the first newspaper to publicly endorse Trump ... that Trump would be installed to do Israel's bidding, which is Adelson's only concern.

1. Trump defied international law and declared Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

2.  Trump has deposited a dimwit at the UN to give lame speeches about human rights (of other countries while ignoring the destabilization of the entire WORLD because of her country's machinations) and make threats about suspended funding if the votes do not come out like the US wants ... which defeats the purpose of the UN in the first place. Nikki Haley has spent a disproportionate amount of time talking about Israel and how the UN has a bias against Israel and the rest of the free world does not vote like the US wants on Israel, we will punish you severely. She is so deluded that she does not even recognize the absurdity of her position as advocating for the USA and NOT bloody Israel.

3.  Trump's campaign Syria policy does not match up well with his presidential positions. Trump's foreign policy staff had the US giving weapons and material aid to the "moderate rebels" , i.e. known terrorists like al nusra and JAI, and 3 times under Trump's watch, the US bombed Syrian regular army forces when they were in pursuit of ISIS, and three times ISIS got away and Syria suffered a setback. Three times the US said mea culpa, but three times makes one wonder ...
And then the false flag attack, about which Russia warned a good month in advance, happened and the US, the UK, and France bravely send their missiles into Syria, and for what purpose and to what end? Israel wants Assad out. Assad asked for help from the Russians and the Iranians, and the Russians and Iranians were fighting the actual terrorists, the ones supported by the US and Israel, and winning, This was too much. So just make up some more lies, like they did on Iraq, to justify their geopolitical strategic imperatives. Go look up the board of Genie Energy and what they recently found in the Golan Heights, and you will understand exactly what Israel wants out of this mangled reality in Syria.

4.  Iran has complied with the terms of the JCPOA, and the US has not. Iran has shipped out 23,000 lbs of enriched uranium, has concreted shut its plutonium breeder, which is necessary for enriching uranium, and so it does not have the ability to weaponize its fissile material. The JCPOA was signed by Russia, China, UK, France, Germany and Iran, and if the US withdraws, it does not force the others to do so. Sanctions will not be honored by the other parties, and Iran will re-start its nuclear program, which will be likely seized on by Israel as a casus belli and I am sure Israel will love to drop some bombs on Iran, even their illegally-held nukes at Dimona, and then claim after-the-fact that it was an existential necessity ... Bottom line : the US gets nothing by withdrawing but it is good for Israel so that is now the policy.

Trumpkins need to realize that MAGA and "drain the swamp" are actually equivalent to the president of the US taking orders from a criminal, racist, Apartheid and terrorist state. Trump might say MAGA to the masses, but when in the company of Jared and Ivanka, or Netanyahu, or Adelson, what he really whispers is MIGA.

It is really sad to see what has happened to this country. Once great, once noble, once principled, once the beacon of light for other nations ... now ?

2017 Year End Summary

Wow, where to start?

Nikki Haley's undiplomatic threats against other nations that if they exercise their sovereign right to vote against Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, which actually opposes US policy for the past 50 years, signed Israeli agreements and international law, that they will be punished? I guess we could start there.

Or we could begin the discussion about Nikki Haley's ignorance, pure and simple, on the history of Israel/Palestine, or how Nikki Haley has spent more time criticizing the UN because of its perceived anti-Israel bias instead of actually pushing forward US interests, which I think is what she was selected to do ...

Or we could start at "Russia Collusion" which after Flynn started cooperating with Mueller, turned out to be Kushner-directed and Trump sanctioned "Israeli Collusion" beckoned by Netanyahu to try and use Russian veto power in the UNSC to scuttle Obama's last directive, for the US to abstain from the UNSC resolution concerning the illegality of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. This is a clear violation of the Logan Act, and pretty illuminating since "America First" and "Make America Great Again" very quickly morphed into "Protect Israel's Lawlessness at any Cost".

When Sheldon Adelson's Las Vegas newspaper became the first rag to officially endorse Trump in 2016, I knew that this con-man had been bought and compromised. When Trump appointed Friedman, who actually raised money for illegal West Bank settlements and said that J-street Jews were "worse than kapos", to the highest diplomatic post between US and Israel, I knew this total sellout by Trump was going to rear its ugly head eventually. And the same commentary applies to Greenblatt. Yeah, why not have a Zionist son-in-law and two uber-Zionists running your Middle East Israeli-Palestinian policy? What could possibly go wrong with that?

And then again, we could talk about Trump, good Lord, can we talk about this man .... Firing Comey, Bannon, Spicer, thwarting Tillerson, not leading after Charlottesville, tweeting his bully routines against anybody that opposes his nonsense, Roy Moore, more tweet fights against Warren and Gillibrand, making America look silly abroad by kissing ass in Saudi Arabia, denying claims of sexual assaults, making up facts, twisting history, and basically mangling the presidency. I think the word mangle is the only one that aptly describes what he has done. The most substantive thing he has done is give tax breaks to the super wealthy while driving up the national deficit and the debt after that, because you cannot do one without the other. His next biggest achievement is exposing that the the US is a total and complete whore to Israel and AIPAC and the powerful Jewish interests in the US. Impeachment does not do any justice to what needs to happen to this clown and his deluded policies ; he wants to pick a fight with : Iran, North Korea, China, Russia, and maybe all at the same time. He wants Mexico to pay for a border wall, while telling everyone else if they don't do what the US wants them to do, they will get sanctioned or bombed. We have supplied the weapons with which Saudi Arabia is conducting its amoral assault against Yemen, we have attacked Syrian troops while they were engaged in fighting against ISIS, given weapons to al-Nusra which fell into ISIS hands, and through it all, Trump has had battles with Democrats and Republicans alike, anybody that dares question his idiotic notions and infantile worldview and disposition.

2017 is, without a doubt, the lowest point in US history. If we have another year in 2018 like this last one, the republic will be dead or ready for the next revolution, which I would welcome.

US Fighting ISIS, or Assad?

This article summarizes what the keen observer has been saying for months-years.

Article from the Telegraph written by the excellent Robert Fisk.

A Voice of Reason

Avi Shlaim's Artcile from The Guardian

This well-written article places blame where it needs to be ; on the actions of Netanyahu and his rabid right-wing settler coalition.

The article also highlights what supposed friends do NOT to do their friends/benefactors. And no I am not referring to Obama "taking their friend to the security council" as Netanyahu put it.

It is amazing that the margins for criticism of Israeli policy are much wider in Israel than they are in the US, the self-proclaimed free-speech capital of the moral universe.

New Session of Congress

House Vote "Condemns" the UNSC Vote on Israeli Settlements

So the House has voted to "condemn" the vote on December 23, 2016 in which the UNSC vote was 14-0-1, with the US abstaining.

Note that our elected "leaders" did not criticize the 14 countries that voted YES. They saved their disdain and shock and indignation for their own president and state department. The republicans and democrats cannot agree on a damned thing, but when it comes to Israel, they can talk tough about the outgoing president. The vote is symbolic but it does demonstrate who is on AIPAC's payroll in the US Congress.

So far in the new session of Congress, legislation has been put forth to:

1.  Move the US Embassy to Jerusalem
2.  "Condemn" the UNSC vote on the illegality (the settlements have been illegal for more than 2 weeks ...) of Israeli settlements
3.  De-fund the UN for its anti-Israel machinations

I am wondering if the US has no problems to tackle. I wonder if these elected "leaders" are going to start solving issues that affect Americans. We have a crumbling infrastructure, devastating national debt measures, alleged Russia hacking into our political system, an education system that produces nimrods, illegal aliens flowing across the southern border, a corrupt (see above) system of representation, etc etc etc.

There is something surreal and decidedly bizarre when US politicians have some unwritten, unspoken competition on who is more pro-Israel. Are they trying to get Saban's money? Adelson's money?

Netanyahu's Poor Logic Exposed

Peter Beinart's Article on Forward

This article is excellent, detailed, and written by someone who has exposed faulty Zionist logic many times.

Reactions to the UNSC Vote on December 23rd, 2016

As someone who has plenty of time to read dozens and dozens of articles about this UNSC vote concerning Israeli settlements and their illegality, some observations are noteworthy:

1.  I have never been more embarrassed for so many US politicians for supporting a foreign head of state over their own president, state department and secretary of state. It is ok to have a different opinion about these matters, but at the end of the day it is bad policy to side with a foreign head of state that has insulted the US administration on many occasions.

2.  All of the criticism coming from Netanyahu and Israel has been directed at the one country that has previously vetoed (lone veto mind you) UNSC resolutions targeting Israel more than 40 times since the 1970's. Shouldn't the comments from Israel be thanks for all of the times Israel was shielded? Or thanks for promising to continue giving Israel almost $4 billion every year for the next 10 years? Nope. It was about this abstention. Did Israel condemn the countries that actually voted YES on the resolution? Perhaps a little bit, but the lion's share of criticism has been against its main benefactor.

3.  People like Lyndsey Graham, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz (and that imbecile Huckabee, who is in Israel this very moment proclaiming that there is no such thing as a settlement!) who want to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem need to be more concerned with fixing the many problems of the USA. The new session of Congress just began and they are already taking up this issue. Given the problems that face the USA, for this to be even an issue at the moment tells you where their loyalties are. A war will be started if these Israel-firsters get their way, so where is the counter-balance going to come from in the US Senate?

4.  The uber Zionists have come out of the woodwork to proclaim what a Jew-hating anti-semite President Obama is. Phrases like "act of hate" and "stabbing Israel in the back" have been used. So let's review. President Jimmy Carter delivered the greatest accord between Israel and the Arab World in 1979, and one of the main provisions was the 1967 borders, that Israel clearly has reneged on. But after Jimmy Carter wrote "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid" he too became an anti-semite in the eyes of the Zionists. Never mind all the good he did for Israel. And the UN, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, B'tSelem, Physicians for Human Rights - Israel, the International Red Cross, and other rights groups and NGO's have been also saddled by the same slander ; they are all guilty of anti-semitism! Imagine that. Every one of these organizations devoted to human rights all have some hidden ugly animus towards Israel because Jews live there ... When will it dawn on Americans that this is a political tactic, used too frequently, to deflect attention away from Israel's lawless behavior, and re-focus attention on Israel's perceived victimhood? Israel is criticized by the entire world, outside the US, because of what it does, not because of its Jewish character.

5.  Obama did not intervene when Israel was slaughtering 1400 Palestinians in 2008-2009 during Operation Cast Lead. The evil Palestinians managed to kill 10 Israelis (6 soldiers and 4 civilians). Another 4 IDF soldiers were killed by Israeli friendly fire. And during that seige, the IDF killed 1400 Palestinians, more than 1000 being civilians, more than 320 children, who died for no other reason that they were Palestinian at this sad point in human history. Israel bombed schools, and hospitals, and used white phosphorous and Goldstone's report found that Israel was guilty of war crimes and possible crimes against humanity. Then Goldstone became a self-hating Jew, according to the same commentators.

6. Obama did not intervene in the summer of 2014 when another massacre happened in Gaza. This time 2200 Palestinians were killed, versus 68 Israeli soldiers. You do the math.

7.  Netanyahu came and addressed Congress about the threat of Iranian nukes, and before that the '67 borders. And our Congress gave him standing ovations, even while he insulted our president, all the while taking our money and playing on the sympathies of the eternally-ignorant and morally-corrupt. And then Netanyahu said there would be no Palestinian state during his tenure, when he was trying to get re-elected. He tried to take that one back after the election, as he knew there would be a price to pay.

And now we have to listen to the poor, slighted, always-misunderstood victim, who happens to also be the biggest war criminal of the 21st century. Well, maybe that is an arguable point since Bush and Cheney's machinations also occurred in this century.
