Trump Cannot Be Anti-Globalist While Working With Global Elites

Early on I posted stories about Trump's bailout by the Rothschilds and Wilbur Ross. I posted stories about his profitable business dealings with George Soros. His connections to Israel and Jeffrey Epstein.
I decried him stuffing his cabinet with Globalist Swamp Critters. He has broken his promise on pulling back from all these wars. He has broken his promises on immigration. Hillary and Bill are still free and not indicted. I could go on and on. Sometimes it doesn't feel good to be right.

During the election it was unclear to me if Donald Trump was a puppet of the elites. He could have simply been a convenient scapegoat for the coming crash. Today, it is obvious that he is indeed controlled opposition.

Axis of Resistance.The West and its Allies Support al Qaeda and ISIS Globally

The real Axis of Evil consists of Washington-led NATO and its allies. The magnitude of the human and environmental catastrophe is unimaginable in scope. Western governments and their agencies send strong delusion to North Americans, who remain largely ignorant to the reality of the catastrophe being committed in their names.

The Western War Of Terror, to which our governments remain committed, loots public treasuries to commit and sustain an overseas holocaust, wherein the West and its agencies support, command and control the very same terrorism that they proclaim to be fighting.

David Icke: Who Did 9/11 and Why? Part One of a Two-Part Interview

David Icke’s new book The Trigger really triggers some people…like The Washington Post‘s passive-aggressive book reviewer Ron Charles, who brags, shedding crocodile tears all the while: “I banned a book. Or at least I helped get it banned, which makes Banned Books Week a little awkward for me this year.”

If Icke is such a nut, and The Trigger is just “harebrained word vomit,” why would anyone—least of all a Washington Post book reviewer who pretends to hate censorship—feel the need to have it banned? The likely answer, of course, is that Charles knows or suspects, consciously or unconsciously, that Israel was behind 9/11.(1)

And why wouldn’t he? Even the most naive and cursory observer of 21st century geopolitics can see that Israel was the biggest beneficiary of 9/11, which brainwashed the whole world to hate Israel’s Muslim enemies, and hijacked the American military to attack and/or destroy nations that Israel considered a threat.

A brief, unhappy history of Israeli massacres

It would be nice to think that, as an Israeli officer once put it, “This time we went too far” — that the killings of 17 unarmed protesters in Gaza by Israeli riflers across a security fence on Friday would cause the world to sanction Israel for its conduct. But if you look over Israel’s history, you find that the massacre has been a ready tool in the Israeli war-chest; and Israelis have not been prosecuted for carrying them out. Indeed, a couple of those responsible later became prime minister!

Here, largely from my own memory, is a rapidly-assembled list of massacres, defined by Webster’s as the killing of a “number of usually helpless or unresisting human beings under circumstances of atrocity or cruelty” (and yes, a couple precede the birth of the state).

US-Saudi-Israeli alliance against Iran floundering in crisis: Haaretz

An anti-Iran alliance forged between the leaders of the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia is faltering as each have become overwhelmed by their own dilemmas, Israel's leading daily Haaretz reports.

“The three leaders who have led the anti-Iran line in recent years were each absorbed in his own domestic crisis this week,” Haaretz wrote on Thursday.

The Israeli paper pointed to the recently intensified impeachment inquiry surrounding US President Donald Trump and pre-indictment hearings threatening the tenure of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the past week as signs that the two leaders were mired in crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The more the internal bickering continues in the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia, the less energy can be expended toward any kind of an alliance between the three countries and Israel against Iran.

Why Israel is struggling to find a way out of its political deadlock

Jonathan Cook argues that despite the failure of the main political parties in Israel to form a government following September’s elections, “there is strong unity in Israel – over shared, deeply ugly attitudes towards Palestinians, whether citizens or those under occupation”.>>

Demi Lovato accused of whitewashing the occupation by taking sponsored trip to Israel

American pop star and actress Demi Lovato has been accused of ignorance on the Palestinian issue after she posted several photos from her sponsored trip to Israel with lengthy captions praising the country as “absolutely magical”.

Many have accused the 27-year-old singer of ignoring the apartheid system affecting Palestinians as she is pictured exploring landmarks such as the Western (Al-Buraq) Wall, and Yad Vashem, the Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem.

Her fans took to Twitter to highlight the racist Israeli policies enforced on Palestinians including the destruction of their homes, land grabs and being denied their rights to live, work and move freely. The backlash was so great, Lovato blocked the comment feature on Instagram.

IRGC Chief Commander Warns Israel to Be Wiped Off Political Maps If It Wages New War

A senior Iranian military commander hailed the country’s deterrence system as one that has helped keep enemies at bay and offset economic pressures exerted on the Islamic Republic by the US and its allies over the past year.

The chief commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has cautioned Israel against waging a new war, saying any such “mistake” would lead to annihilation.

To prove the point, Major General Hossein Salami, when taking the floor at a meeting of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei with senior commanders of the IRGC on Wednesday, stressed that Tel Aviv is no longer viewed as a threat due to an upgrade in his country’s deterrence capacity.

“Any new war will lead to the total disappearance of this regime from the world’s political geography”, he uttered, adding that Israel is well aware any small mistake “will be its last”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

General Salami, a word, please: this rhetoric is absolutely not helping with any ratcheting down of tensions, which should be your and your Israeli counterpart's most vital mission right now.

I would like to hope that the above-made speech was engineered far more for domestic consumption rather than international consumption.

Yes, the world understands that Iran, like Israel, has some very intense, complex, and highly effective weaons.

But General, you and I both understand that all it is going to take, may well be just one stupid miscalculation, or one small screw-up by the chain of command on either side, to send this world down a path to World War III.

I have seen images of you on-line, and would possibly imagine that you have a grand-child, or grand-children by this time in your life; perhaps, so does your Israeli counterpart.

Peace is a hard choice, when so many batty people in power, are screaming for war; but I am asking both you, and your Israeli counterpart, to make that hard choice, to insure a peaceful future not only for your families' children; but also, for all children on this earth.

The Real Saudi-Israeli Relations

Over the past two decades, Israel and Arab Gulf monarchies have forged a tacit partnership, increasingly aligning their interests and agendas, while hiding behind a public perception of being enemies.

Saudi-Israeli links are not new. They’ve made covert contacts through back-channels since Sheikh Kamal Adham’s time, when he ran the Saudi General Intelligence Directorate from 1965 to 1979. Though still having no official diplomatic relations, in recent years the Kingdom and Israel have put far less effort into concealing their unspoken strategic partnership.

Former Israeli general compares Israel to Nazi Germany

Former Israeli army chief Yair Golan warned Israel could share the same fate as Nazi Germany as a result of the growing influence of extremist religious forces.
"We must be careful, very careful, because among us there are radicals with a messianic outlook who will use Israeli democracy," Golan said in a radio interview Thursday.

"I remind everyone that the Nazis came to power in a democratic manner," the left-wing politican added.

Trump Administration Reignites War Against Syria

The neocons are not about to give up and admit defeat. Due primarily to Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah, the presence of the Islamic State is now considerably reduced in Syria.

This is, of course, unacceptable for the neocons and Trump’s State Department, so last week Sec. State Pompeo accused Syria once again of using chemical weapons.

There is no evidence this incident occurred. This is the case with all of the supposed chemical attacks in Syria.

From The Guardian, May 22, 2019.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what is the White House's next step in this flummoxed, fluster-cluck of an accusation?!?

And to all people familiar with how this stuff works out there, who are also Rivero's Rangers; IF this actual attack happened last May, how reasonably long, please, before an incontrovertible verdict to come back as to whether, or whether this was not a use of chemical weapons?!?

So is DC going to decree that all Iranian ships be interdicted in the High Seas, for fear of carrying their oil to some other part of the world?!?

And would such action not be tantamount to a declaration of war against both Syria and Iran?!?

Folks, this is absolute madness, writ large.

Iran Is China’s Secret Weapon for Killing off the US Dollar’s Global Reserve Status

In geographical terms, this implies a future shift of military forces away from the Persian Gulf, Middle East and North Africa to the Far East. This is for the purposes of containing and surrounding (militarily, economically and technologically) Washington’s primary peer competitor, namely China.

Beijing, in response to this encirclement, has a card up its sleeve. It can seek to replace the reserve-currency status of the US dollar by not only coming to Iran’s aid, which is fundamental to its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), but also, at a later stage, seeking to woo Saudi Arabia (and OPEC) away from selling oil exclusively in US dollars. Moscow, with the development of OPEC+, can help its Chinese ally, shaping the LNG market with prices quoted in currencies other than the US dollar. Currently, Beijing and Moscow are trading in hydrocarbons by completely bypassing both the SWIFT payment system as well as the US dollar.

The Strange Messages That Haunted The Saudi Consulate In Turkey Last October | A Dream

The messages all appeared at the Saudi consulate in ?stanbul, last year, seemingly without human intervention. Traced on a mirror, entered into a computer, smeared on a bulletproof glass partition; fingerpainted in dark dried red on a wall; scratched on the newly waxed floor; traced in the pile of a freshly installed carpet; in stencil letters cut out from adjacent polystyrene dropout ceiling tiles; letters cut from the day's newspaper before it had been opened, the phrase arranged neatly and affixed somehow to the blank space at the top of the page; in dripping fresh wet red, under the royal images properly set in gilt frames on the wall.

The messages were all made out of the same seventeen letters.

They all appeared to make sense in relation to the events that took place in that building, on October 2, 2018.

And they haunted my dreams for months.

Iraqi militia leader meets US defence secretary following spate of Israeli attacks

Iraq's head of the Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF) - a coalition of some 70, mostly Shia militias - met with US Defence Secretary Mark Esper in Washington on Wednesday.

Falih al-Fayyadh's visit comes a day after Iraq's prime minister directly blamed Israel for a series of airstrikes targeting Iranian-backed PMF forces in the country.

Al-Fayyadh is considered one of the more moderate voices in the PMF, also known as Hashd al-Shaabi, and has sought to rein in calls to target US interests in Iraq made by factions loyal to Iran.

According to a brief statement released by his office, Alfayyadh met Esper in the presence of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley and discussed the relationship between the two countries.

Former Israeli Intel Official Claims Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell Worked for Israeli Intel

A recent interview given by a former high-ranking official in Israeli military intelligence has claimed that Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual blackmail enterprise was an Israel intelligence operation run for the purpose of entrapping powerful individuals and politicians in the United States and abroad.

Since the apparent death by suicide of Jeffrey Epstein in a Manhattan prison, much has come to light about his depraved activities and methods used to sexually abuse underage girls and entrap the rich and powerful for the purposes of blackmail. Epstein’s ties to intelligence, described in-depth in a recent MintPress investigative series, have continued to receive minimal mainstream media coverage, which has essentially moved on from the Epstein scandal despite the fact that his many co-conspirators remain on the loose.

Saudi Elites Question MbS' Ability To Lead World's Largest Oil Exporter After Aramco Attack

Sources told Reuters that members within Saudi Arabia's ruling family and business elites are increasingly becoming frustrated with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) after the largest-ever attack on Saudi oil facilities on September 14, reported Reuters.

Distinguished members within the ruling Al Saud family have expressed deep concern about MbS' ability to defend and lead the world's largest oil exporter, according to a senior foreign diplomat and five sources with ties to the Al Saud family, all spoke on condition of anonymity to Reuters.

Some of the sources said the September 14 attacks fueled unwanted tensions in the Middle East, especially the threat of imminent war with Iran.

"There is a lot of resentment" about the crown prince's ability to lead, said one of the sources, a member of the Saudi elite with royal connections. "How were they not able to detect the attack?"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, can you blame the Royal House of Saud. that they are absolutely gobsmacked by this guy's inability to put down "primitive hostiles", the Houthis in Yemen, who have managed to embarrass Saudi Arabia's military with both some incredible hits on Saudi oil refinery structure, and the capture of Saudi forces inside Saudi Arabia, plus that nasty little carving up of Adnan Kashoggi, shrieking his lungs out while getting dismembered, about which the whole damn world knows?!?

Timing... is everything.

And over this last weekend, PBS aired a documentary indicating that Prince Mohammed bin Salman wanted to recognize Israel, in return for the US' assistance in getting rid of the Iranian oligarchy running the country.

MbS ‘Ready to Recognize Israel in Return for US Help’

But remember: this documentary was shot in 2017; not this last weekend.

So the timing of its release was intended to create a very different mindset of the Saudi Royal Family than that upon which many Americans had based their understanding of this country and its leadership.

We notice the following, printed last year, regarding the personal wealth of this family:

Saudi Family's Walth Could be more than $ 1 trillion

Were I Prince Salman, I would immediately request a peace deal with the Houthis, creating as favorable a set of circumstances for Saudi Arabia as was humanly possible.

I would then formally reach out to Israel for a trade deal which not only benefits Israel, but the entire Middle East, including Gaza and the West Bank (for which the current Kusher proposal has absolutely nothing, except exile, extinction and despair).

And the recurring question in MbS's head should be the following; "I have about 2,000 relatives, out of the 12,000 in the family who actually hold the purse strings here.

Now, which of those 2,000 relatives have both assassins on speed dial, and a very single-minded desire to have me "neutralized", in the worst possible way for a human to die?!?!?

Israel has normalised torture of Palestinian prisoners

Last week, a Palestinian detainee arrested by Israeli occupation forces was admitted to a Jerusalem hospital suffering from severe injuries, including broken ribs and kidney failure.

Samir Arbeed, 44 and in good health when detained, had been tortured during his interrogation at the hands of Shin Bet agents. According to reports, the agents had been given permission by an Israeli “judicial body” to use “exceptional ways to investigate”.

The treatment meted out to Arbeed in custody has prompted strong condemnation from Palestinian and international human rights campaigners, with Amnesty International describing the “legally sanctioned torture” as “utterly outrageous”.

Secret Israel-Jordan gas deal revealed

The full text of the Israel-Jordan gas deal has been revealed for the first time since it was signed in September 2016.

The Jordanian government has classified the document, but it was leaked to media over the summer by Jordanian lawmaker Saleh al-Armouti.

Al-Armouti had earlier disclosed some of its contents during a press conference.

The document provided by al-Armouti appears to be a translation into Arabic of an English-language original which has not been published.

The contents confirm suspicions that the Jordanian government misled the public about its involvement in the deal, as well as the conditions for its cancellation and its implications for the Jordanian economy.

A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR ……. FOR SOME, NOT ALL

For the New Year of the Jews 5780 (2020) I feel marginalized, among many others who are working to end the illegal occupation of Palestine. The Jewish New Year festival literally means “head of the year” and initiates the ten days of penance that end in Yom Kippur, literally “day of atonement”. If you read the many greetings to the Jewish New Year, from politics and religion, then you can literally feel the Transfiguration of a religion that flourished despite the Holocaust in Germany – if, for example, Chancellor Merkel in her congratulation so flowery formulated as: “It is a unique and wonderful proof of trust and a great enrichment for our country, that Jewish life could blossom again after the collapse of civilization of the Shoah … At the same time, courageous people stand up for our values.

Secret Israeli nuclear test covered up to help Jimmy Carter’s re-election

immy Carter announces his run for the presidency in 1974. During his bid for re-election in 1979, it is alleged he covered up a nuclear weapons explosion carried out by Israel and apartheid South Africa. | AP
Former President Jimmy Carter covered up a nuclear weapon test by Israel in 1979, declassified reports have suggested. His administration feared that making the discovery public would damage his bid for re-election.

U.S. satellites picked up a “double flash” signal associated with a nuclear explosion in the South Indian Ocean in September 1979. This led to an emergency at the White House, according to Foreign Policy magazine which obtained the documents.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israel committed 415 violations against Palestinian journalists in past year

The Israeli government is deliberately targeting Palestinian journalists in both the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

The Ministry of Information, on the International Day of Solidarity with Palestinian journalists, reported that the number of human rights violations, from the beginning of year 2019 to the end of August 2019, totaled 415; this included 82 journalists who were injured while covering the Great Return March, in Gaza.

The Ministry pointed out that Palestinian journalists became a central target of Israeli occupation forces during their coverage of the ongoing demonstration, which began on March 30, 2018, along the eastern border of the Gaza Strip.

Bin Salman ready to recognize Israel if US helps him defeat Iran: Documentary

According to PBS documentary 'The Crown Prince,' which was broadcast on Saturday, the kingdom’s de facto ruler made the pledge in a meeting with President Trump during his visit to Riyadh in May 2017.

Iraqi Hashd al-Sha’abi to retaliate against Israel for attacks: Top cmdr.

A high-ranking commander of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMUS) says Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi’s confirmation of the Israeli regime’s responsibility for a string of attacks on positions of the Iraqi pro-government forces makes retaliation legitimate.

Abu Ala al-Walai, Commander of the Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (the Master of Martyrs Battalions) group, which operates under the command of the voluntary forces – better known by the Arabic word Hashd al-Sha’abi, wrote on his Twitter page on Tuesday that the Iraqi premier’s comments were “a green light to retaliate against Israel.”

Abdul-Mahdi said in an interview with the Doha-based Arabic-language al-Jazeera television news network on Monday, “Investigations into the targeting of some Popular Mobilization Forces positions indicate that Israel carried it out.”

Why Israel is Struggling to Find a Way Out of its Political Deadlock

It would be a grave mistake to assume that the continuing political deadlock in Israel – with neither incumbent prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu nor his main rival Benny Gantz seemingly able to cobble together a coalition government – is evidence of a deep ideological divide.

In political terms, there is nothing divided about Israel. In this month’s general election, 90 per cent of Israeli Jews voted for parties that identify as being either on the militaristic, anti-Arab right or on the religious, anti-Arab far-right.

The two parties claiming to represent the centre-left – the rebranded versions of Labour and Meretz – won only 11 seats in the 120-member parliament.

Stranger still, the three parties that say they want to form a “broad unity government” won about 60 per cent of the vote.

How Israel Controls Its Narrative

It is interesting to note how the Israel Lobby is able to manage and contain the commentary of groups in America that might normally be critical of Israeli policies vis-à-vis the United States. A recent article by Professor Andrew Bacevich entitled “President Trump, Please End the American Era in the Middle East” is a good example of how self-censorship by authors works. The piece appeared as one of Bacevich’s regular weekly contributions to The American Conservative website under the rubric “Realism and Restraint.”

UN report gives Israel free hand to smear BDS movement

A new report by a United Nations expert gives Israel and its lobby carte blanche to smear the movement for Palestinian rights as anti-Semitic.

Ahmed Shaheed, the UN special rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief, issued the report ostensibly focused on anti-Semitism in late September.

It adopts a controversial definition of anti-Semitism which is being promoted by Israel and its lobby groups.

Human rights defenders have long warned that the so-called IHRA definition conflates criticism of Israel and its state ideology Zionism, on the one hand, with anti-Jewish bigotry, on the other.

Saudi leaders sent messages to Iran's president: Spokesman

The spokesman for Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's administration has confirmed that Saudi leaders have been sending messages to Iran's president through a head of state, though refraining to give any details on the nature of those messages.

Ali Rabiei made the remarks during his weekly press briefing in Tehran on Monday, when he was asked about reports denoting that the Saudi leadership has been sending messages to Iran's chief executive.

“Yes, this is true that they have sent messages to Mr. Rouhani through a head of state,” Rabiei noted, adding, “We must see signs of it [Saudi’s goodwill] without any ambiguity, and the first sign of it is to stop the aggression against Yemen and put an end to the massacre of Yemenis.”

in his interview with 60 Minutes, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman tried to do some damage control on the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi, and the ongoing war in Yemen. The focus ultimately was brought back to the Saudis’ favorite topic, Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The above bit comes from the Iranian blog, Presstv.com, making it appear that the Houth military triumphs in Saudi Arabia, are giving that country a reason to begin to attempt to open some kind of dialogue their Iranian counterparts in Tehran, something which would hardly been imaginable, as a possible step, even a month ago.

Unfortunately, the piece in antiwar.com, would have the world think the opposite, and is titled: Saudi Prince Warns of Escalation With Iran, Higher Oil Prices<

The problem for this battered, recycled threat to become resurgent, is that Iran hasn't really done anything wrong, other that refuse to sell their oil in US dollars.

And it did, until very recently honor the P5+1 deal, until, of course, the US government reneged on it earlier this year, as a personal favor from President Trump to Israel's Prime Minister, Netanyahu, and to his most prolific US suporter, Sheldon Adelson.

The Houthi timing on this attack, was nothing less than brilliant, even if that brilliance might well be chalked up to " amazing unexpectedly good timing" on the Houthi's part, relative to what is happening in the US geopolitical-grinder: because here you have Saudi Arabia's BFF in the Middle East, the ruler of the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika, chokingly caught up in the throes of yet another impeachment "wang-dangorama", this time concerning Ukraine, and American Pols on both sides of the isle, terrified that they will lose their "seat at the public trough.

I have not yet heard one note from those alleged "Congressional Representatives on this issue, as they are so completely focused on not getting impeached, or charged, that suddenly, it appears that Iran and Saudi Arabia are suddenly, and absolutely, on their own here.

Unless President Trump is thoroughly ready to create some very bold actions
to prevent this from escalating into a fell-scale war (unless that is the absolute goal of bringing Iran down,, that will be precisely what he will be getting; and with the added caveat, that Russia will not allow Iran to go down in flames, if there is something they can do to prevent it.

Mr. President, please; War with Iran, over Yemen?!?

And just one final question, sir; when will the US government be ready to declare a draft, which will be horrifically necessary, if we declare war against Iran?!? The above bit comes from the Iranian blog, Presstv.com, making it appear that the Houth military triumphs in Saudi Arabia, are giving that country a reason to begin to attempt to open some kind of dialogue their Iranian counterparts in Tehran, something which would hardly been imaginable, as a possible step, even a month ago.

Unless President Trump is thoroughly ready to create some very bold actions
to prevent this from escalating into a full-scale war, that will be precisely what he will be getting; and with the added caveat, that Russia will not allow Iran to go down in flames, if there is something they can do to prevent it.

With Biden and Trump in the political fight for their lives, I would like both of them to remember a phrase from both physics and politics; "nature abhors a vacuum"; so what happens now if the Saudis are militarily defeated by those Houthi forces, who were " held in so low in esteem" they weren't worthy of any consideration whatsoever, just a couple of months ago, but have become really formidable and capable fighters as well as diplomats?!?

Perhaps now, might be a time for intelligent, fresh thinking on this issue, that does not get the US military dragged down into another sucking, sinkhole of another protracted war.

As indictment looms, Netanyahu is given first chance at forming governing coalition

In a surprising turn of events, Benjamin Netanyahu will be given yet another chance to hold onto his title as Prime Minister — a potential lifeline for the premiere who is facing an impending indictment on charges of corruption and bribery.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin announced on Wednesday evening that he would be giving Netanyahu the first shot at forming a governing coalition, over his opponent Benny Gantz.

For now, Netanyahu has up to six weeks to cobble together a 61-seat majority. If he fails, as he did in April, the chance to form a majority may be given to Gantz and his running mate Yair Lapid.

Ashkenazic Jews' mysterious origins unravelled by scientists thanks to ancient DNA

For a more scientific take on the Jewish origin debate, recent DNA analysis of Ashkenazic Jews – a Jewish ethnic group – revealed that their maternal line is European. It has also been found that their DNA only has 3% ancient ancestry which links them with the Eastern Mediterranean (also known as the Middle East) – namely Israel, Lebanon, parts of Syria, and western Jordan. This is the part of the world Jewish people are said to have originally come from – according to the Old Testament. But 3% is a minuscule amount, and similar to what modern Europeans as a whole share with Neanderthals. So given that the genetic ancestry link is so low, Ashkenazic Jews most recent ancestors must be from elsewhere.

Israelis just voted for occupation – stop pretending they want peace

Israel’s election results are in. In terms of narrow party-focused politics, the results were inconclusive. The two main electoral lists resulted in a near draw.

According to the final vote tally, the Blue and White electoral alliance – led by two former Israeli generals and an ex-TV news presenter – ended narrowly ahead with 33 seats in the Knesset, Israel’s parliament.

But they were only a single seat ahead of the ruling Likud Party of the current prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who won 32 seats.

Nonetheless, the Israeli president has just provided Netanyahu with the first opportunity to form a government, since the incumbent obtained more recommendations from incoming lawmakers overall.

Another mystery airstrike was conducted over Iraq late Friday night, after a summer that's witnessed Baghdad blame Israel for a series of unprecedented violations of its airspace to carry out alleged strikes on Iran-linked Shia militias in the country.

This newest incident involved an attack on Imam Ali base near the border with Syria, in an area which Israeli defense officials have voiced concern Iran is utilizing Iraq's Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) to aid Syrian forces in establishing a security corridor stretching along the Syrian-Iraq border, or so-called Iranian "land bridge".

Malaysian PM: Israel is the origin of modern terrorism

The creation of Israel by seizing Palestinian land and expelling its 90 per cent Arab population is the root cause of terrorism, the Prime Minister of Malaysia Dr Mahathir Mohamad said in his speech at the UN, reports Malay Mail.

The Malaysian PM stated that since the creation of Israel “…wars have been fought in many countries, many related to the creation of Israel. And now we have terrorism when there was none before, or at least none on the present scale.”

Making his comments at the General Debate of the 74th UN General Assembly in New York, he added: “Military action against acts of terrorism will not succeed. We need to identify the cause and remove it. But the great powers refuse to deal with the root cause.”

How Israel lobby set EU anti-Semitism agenda

For nearly four years, Katharina von Schnurbein has been posing as a champion of Europe’s Jews.

If taken at face value, her speeches at numerous conferences suggest she is a conscientious civil servant motivated by a desire to halt persecution. A more detailed examination reveals she has been following an agenda set by Israel and its supporters.

The real objective of this agenda has been to muzzle the Palestine solidarity movement.

Spotlight: Israel denies 19 Palestinian communities in Jordan Valleys of using water

With sorrow and anger, Harbi Abu Al-Kbash, a resident of the west bank's Jordan Valley, could not access to water due to the closure by Israeli army forces with barbed wires and surveillance cameras, banning Palestinians from using them.

Abu Al-Kbash lives in Homsa community in the Jordan Valley, which is considered a hot point in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

The Jordan Valley, which covers approximately one third of the West Bank area, is considered highly strategic and fertile area.

Palestinian prisoner severely tortured by Israeli interrogators: Rights group

The Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, which advocates the rights of Palestinian inmates, says prisoner Samer al- Arbeed has been taken to hospital in a critical condition as a result of brutal torture at a detention center in the occupied territories.

Addameer said on Sunday that the 44-year-old father of three was arrested on September after a special unit of the Israeli forces raided the central occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.

During the arrest, Samer was harshly beaten by Israeli forces using their guns. He was then taken to Mascobiyya interrogation center in Jerusalem al-Quds and an order was issued immediately, banning him from meeting his lawyer.

Trump, FDR, and War

President Trump’s campaign of “maximum pressure” against Iran reminds me of President Franklin Roosevelt’s similar campaign against Japan prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Trump’s brutal economic embargo on Iran brings to mind what FDR did to Japan. The difference, however, is that Trump’s objective seems different from that of Roosevelt.

When Trump withdrew the United States from the accord that it had entered into with Iran under the Obama administration, it was with the aim of arriving at a new accord. Trump figured that by squeezing the economic life out of the Iranian citizenry with his embargo, he could induce Iran’s rulers to return to the bargaining table and enter into a new agreement, one that would be satisfactory to Trump, which he could then trumpet in his campaign for reelection.

Dems Propose First Gun Grab Since Lexington And Concord

Mandatory gun buyback' is a silly euphemism.
By David Harsanyi

What Democrats propose can be more accurately described as “the first American gun confiscation effort since Lexington and Concord,” or some variation on that theme.

I’m certain nothing in the Second Amendment mentions hunting, because the right of self-defense—an individual concern, as well as a collective one—has nothing to do with shooting deer, and everything to do with protecting Americans from those who endeavor to strip them of their inalienable rights.

If you think you’re going to have overwhelming support for “mandatory gun buybacks” when people learn that you’re really talking about “the confiscation of 20 million guns,” you’re fooling yourself.

ESCOBAR: HOW YEMEN'S HOUTHIS ARE BRINGING DOWN A GOLIATH

SOURCE: PEPE ESCOBAR VIA THE SAKER

“It is clear to us that Iran bears responsibility for this attack. There is no other plausible explanation. We support ongoing investigations to establish further details.”

The statement above was not written by Franz Kafka. In fact, it was written by a Kafka derivative: Brussels-based European bureaucracy. The Merkel-Macron-Johnson trio, representing Germany, France and the UK, seems to know what no “ongoing investigation” has unearthed: that Tehran was definitively responsible for the twin aerial strikes on Saudi oil installations.

“There is no other plausible explanation” translates as the occultation of Yemen. Yemen only features as the pounding ground of a vicious Saudi war, de facto supported by Washington and London and conducted with US and UK weapons, which has generated a horrendous humanitarian crisis.

So Iran is the culprit, no evidence provided, end of story, even if the “investigation continues.”

It also leaves behind toxic pollution from burn pits and weapons such as depleted uranium (DU). The use of DU violates international law, including the Biological Weapons Convention. As described in David Swanson’s article about a new study, which documents the horrific impact of DU on newborns in Iraq,

“…every round of DU ammunition leaves a residue of DU dust on everything it hits, contaminating the surrounding area with toxic waste that has a half-life of 4.5 billion years, the age of our solar system, and turns every battlefield and firing range into a toxic waste site that poisons everyone in such areas.”

The Only Way Israelis Can Form a Government: Betrayal

As expected, the outcome of Israel’s second national election was as murky as the first round in April. During the next few weeks, Israeli leaders will be engaged in negotiations in an effort to form a government. The double-dealings and the betrayals that will need to occur for them to form a governing coalition will make “House of Cards” look like a tea party.

'GRIEF AND ANGER' IN YEMEN AFTER US-BACKED SAUDI BOMBING KILLS SEVEN CHILDREN, NINE OTHERS

SOURCE: COMMON DREAMS
Warning: This story contains graphic images and video.

A Saudi Arabia-led coalition attack on Yemen Tuesday killed 16 people, including seven children, the latest massacre in the years long conflict.

"These children should not be victims of this conflict," Save the Children in Yemen country director Tamer Kirolos told Middle East Eye. "Yet, they have paid the highest price imaginable. We're calling for an independent investigation into the attack and for perpetrators to be held to account."

(@MohammedHojily) September 24, 2019

The attack was took place in Dhalea province, an area controlled by Houthi rebels, China's Xinhua News Agency reported.

The Saudi-led war on Yemen—backed by the U.S. government—has raged for over four years.

According to Al Jazeera, the Houthis had hoped for a mutual drawdown in hostilities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, here's a shoutout to one of President Trump's BFFs in the Middle East, the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Prince Mohammed Bin Salman !!

GREAT job in Yemen, yesterday; wow, 7 kids killed; how many pregnant Yemeni women did your soldiers kill, BTW?!? We know you just LOVE numbers like that!

You know what the IDF says (now, covertly,) about that, regarding pregnant Palestinian women right?!? "One Shot, Two Kills!!"

And if there is anyone reading this, who does not have the innate intelligence to understand that the foregoing is a very furiously angry piece of sarcasm, please leave this site at once, and apply to "TwitFace" to upload your very own second brain cell.

It may hurt, a little.

Here are some images, courtesy of some ballsy reporters in the region, and have not been filtered out of the article, as twitter has done with the above reports. To themindunleashed.com: Bravo for this, and bless the videographers, who wanted to share this footage. Warning: very graphic videos

Images: another savage massacre in Yemen, courtesy of US aided and abetted, by the US military

Please look at these images, even though I understand you may want to turn away from them. This is being done with your tax dollars, but more distressingly, in your names.

Look at this family, grieving inconsolably, trying to protect what is left of the children's corpses, in one video, and how gently they are putting the stones over the bodies, in an unmarked grave.

This, folks, is what this massacre will most probably achieve, with the complete signoff by both the Saudi Government, and the US government; after the Houthi attacks against two Saudi oil refineries on the 14th, the Houthis said that no more attacks of this kind will follow. but only if the Saudis stop their attacks in Yemen.

Well the Butcher of Yemen, has just responded, through this massacre, that Saudi Arabia will bomb, and continue to bomb civilians in Yemen, no matter what.

The chess pieces are starting to fall in place, if one is paying minimal attention.

Saudi Arabia has chosen not to step down on their assaults on Yemen, because of the bombing of those Saudi refinery units.

So look for another bombing of Saudi infrastructure, but this time, with massive civilian casualties, most probably carried out by the Sufis, but to be blamed on Iran.

Look for American defense infrastructure to perform moderately less badly than it did the last time, when it was a 100% failure (how, please, can that be an "accident"?).

Such a bombing would create the "red meat/bloody shirt "justification" for a massive bombing of Iran, courtesy of Saudi Arabia; Israel; and the US,even if it was not Iran which did the bombing, and they know it.

Syrian Army Prepares for Escalation in Golan Heights

On September 21, an EW unit of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) intercepted and took control of a large quadcopter-style unmanned aerial vehicle over the town of Erneh, near the contact line between the SAA and the Israeli-occupied part of the Golan Heights.

According to local sources, the UAV was likely operated by Israel. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) used similar UAVs in its attack on a Hezbollah media center in Lebanon’s Beirut on August 25. In own turn, Lt. Col. Avichay Adraee, a spokesman for the Israeli military, claimed that the UAV was not belonging to the IDF. Lt. Col. Adraee said that the UAV may have been “Iranian”.

Following the incident, the SAA has reinforced its positions near the Golan Heights.

The situation is escalating in the southern part of the Idlib de-escalation zone, where militants have resumed their attacks on government positions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So we have come to the point, where Israel and Syria duking it out militarily, over the Golan; this could get nasty in a heartbeat.

And please do not forget; Russia has aided Syria, militarily, when it was fighting the US-trained, equipped, and jihadist groups were allowed to function.

Saudis Threaten Iran on Behalf of the USFM says US patience 'not inexhaustible'

While President Trump has said that the US is not interested in a war with Iran, Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister, Adel al-Jubeir, took to a UN meeting to suggest that US military options are still being considered.

While it seems a bit presumptive for the Saudi FM to decide to speak to US policy, his comments that US patience is “not inexhaustible” seems to be directed both at threatening Iran, and at trying to get the rest of the world on board with the conflict.

Al-Jubeir says that the UN report on the attack will be available soon, and that there is a whole list of options, including military options, still being considered, with him wanting to mobilize international support for what is to come.

HOLES IN US BURNING SAUDI OIL FIELDS NARRATIVE COULD SPARK WAR WITH IRAN

Published: September 24, 2019
Share | Print This

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
Tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran are escalating to new heights, drawing the United States into a confrontation with the Islamic Republic after a sophisticated attack targeted Saudi Arabia’s Aramco oil facility — the largest oil processing facility in the world — knocking out half of the country’s oil capacity, or more than 5 million barrels a day, and leaving the oil fields in flames.

The attack was nothing the Kingdom had seen before or expected: According to U.S. and Saudi intel, 18 drones and seven cruise missiles were launched and went undetected by both American and Saudi radar systems. The weaponry even went unnoticed by the U.S. military base nearby, the Prince Sultan Airbase, which is guarded by an American Patriot missile defense system and over 500 U.S. military personnel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I, personally, would like to go back to Russia's suggestion at the UN, that time be taken for a full, clear, and that an impartial group of forensic scientists, with no axe to grind, collectively, be brought together immediately, to determine cause and the perpetrator.

Because what the US and Saudi government are trying to do, at least from my perspective, is run with the accusation that Iran did this, attempt to control the narrative, and declare Iran the bad guy.

In this instance, taking time to analyze what has happened, with credible forensics, is absolutely the more wise course of action, whereas clumsy haste, could definitely engender World War III.

All Options Including Military on Table After Probe Into Aramco Attack Completed - Saudi FM

The drone attacks on two major Saudi Aramco plants at Abqaiq and Khurais were carried out on September 14. As a result of significant damage done to the facilities, the production of about 5.7 million barrels of crude oil per day, or about half of Saudi Arabia’s total daily output, was temporarily suspended.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has announced that Riyadh is considering all options, including military, after the probe into the attacks on Aramco oil facilities is completed.

"We want to mobilise international support, and we want to look at all options - diplomatic options, economic options and military options - and then make the decision," he said, speaking in New York on Tuesday at a conference on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation of what Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said, in Diplospeak:

"We did not have the amount of support necessary for an immediate military action against Iran; the US overnights were utter crap, so this whole sordid thing is going to have to be pushed to the next level, including attacks not only against Saudi facilities, but also against innocent civilians; we need a bloody shirt to to wave, as our "Pearl Harbor", to get people excited about getting into yet another mindless war, which could go global, and see civilization simply end on that note.

The Trump / Q-Anon psyop - Good guy / bad guy theater on the way to a one world government: Part 1 - Trump the Zionist stooge

So I've been digging into this whole Trump and Q-Anon topic for a while now and I've become quite convinced it's part of a much larger psy-op to get the masses to keep trusting the government "just a bit longer" (of course it's always just a bit longer) while they make their final preparations to get to a one world government in place which is to be led from Jerusalem. I would like to be wrong on this, but there is far too much evidence pointing in this direction.

Saudi Airstrike Hits North Yemen Mosque, Killing Five Civilians

Saudi warplanes attacked a mosque in northern Yemen’s Amran Province early Monday, according to local media, killing at least five civilians. All the slain were members of the same family.

It’s not entirely clear why the mosque was attacked, though the Saudis have been bombing northern Yemen with increased frequency over the past several days, and most of the strikes don’t seem to be hitting anything military-related.

If anything, Friday’s proposal for a truce by Yemen’s Houthi movement seems to be driving the Saudis to carry out even more aggressive and frequent attacks, so as to remove any doubt that they are not on board with it.

And while the airstrikes in north Yemen are causing civilian casualties, the real problem is likely yet to come, as the Saudis have begun a new offensive against the port city of Hodeidah.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just... swell, Saudi Arabia; you have let the Houthis know that you will not take advantage of the proposed cease-fire.

Of course, what this means, is the following: at some point, the Houthis will strike deep into Saudi territory, perhaps over another large petroleum refining center, and let their drones do the talking.

And this time, there may well be be injuries, and massive casualties (the Saudi military, enabled by US troops, routinely bombs hospitals; mosques, and schools.)

More impotent US missiles will be quickly installed in Saudi Arabia, but will most probably do more not much more to defend either the Saudis, or US troops stationed there, than did the last round of missiles.

And then what?!? It will most probably destroy any chance for Saudi Arabia's ARAMCO's IPO, upon which the Crown Prince Bin Salmin,has desperately built his plans for a new, modern economy, to move forward.

And without this IPO being successful upon launch, the economy, and future leadership of the country, may well be "up for grabs."

And please remember; last June, a senior Russian official made the following statement: Iran won't be alone, if the US attacks.

As Washington uses questionable evidence to call on other nations to condemn Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is expected to take a much different approach and use his time at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) this week to propose a cooperative agreement to stabilize and secure the Persian Gulf region.

“I will also get the Iranian nation’s message across to the international community,” Rouhani said Monday after touching down in New York for the 74th UNGA. “The Iranian people are suffering from a cruel economic war. Iran is a nation of resistance and wants everyone to return to their commitments and laws.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sincerely, and prayerfully, that Rouhani does get a chance to speak tomorrow. The guy isn't a monster; just someone attempting to keep an elected government in place, and take care of his people

But with all the hoopla around him and this visit,I would not bet against Israel and the US creating some kind of "false flag" which would require his returning home early for "emergency consultations" with other members of his government.

Will More US Troops in Saudi Arabia Make America Great?

by Ron Paul: Posted on September 24, 2019

President Trump deserves credit for resisting the war cries from neocons like Sen. Lindsey Graham and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo after last week’s attack on two Saudi oil facilities. Pompeo was eager to blame Iran because he wants war with Iran and anything that can trigger such a war is fine with him.

A week has now passed since the attack and Pompeo’s rush to judgment has been shown for what it was: war propaganda.

President Trump likely understands that a US war on Iran will be his undoing as president. Who knows, maybe that’s what his closest advisors want. But according to a Gallup poll just last month, only 18 percent of Americans were in favor of military action against Iran.

Full Spectrum Dominance: The US Demonizes “Invented Enemies”

Hegemon USA needs enemies to advance its imperial aims. None exist so they’re invented.

The scheme is all about pursuing what the Pentagon’s May 2000 Joint Vision 2020 called “full-spectrum dominance.”

It refers to unchallenged US control over planet earth, its landmass, waterways, airspace, sub-surface, electromagnetic spectrum, information systems, and outerspace.

It’s about “the ability of US forces, operating alone or with allies, to defeat any adversary and control any situation across the range of military operations” — according to the Pentagon.

It’s about imperial madness — the US addiction to endless preemptive wars to transform all nations into vassal states, their sovereign rights affirmed under international law subordinated to a higher power in Washington.

America: A Land Without Truth

It has been 17 days since a four-year study of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 by civil engineers was made available to the media. The study concluded that fire was not the cause of the collapse of the 47-story building. The study also concluded that “the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building.”

After 17 days, the report of the civil engineering team remains unmentioned in the American media except for a local Alaska TV station and a local Alaska newspaper. The report went straight into the Memory Hole. The vast majority of the American people will never know that the information has been kept from them.

The pile of lies that constitutes American awareness is very high.

Luongo: Did Trump Just Fall Into Aramco's Trap?

Authored by Tom Luongo via Gold, Goats, 'n' Guns blog,

Now that I’ve had a week to process it, the attack on the Saudi Abqaiq oil processing facility was more than a brilliant operation, it was a trap.

And, unfortunately, President Trump just fell in it.

My initial reaction to this was that it could have easily been a false flag to gin up a war with Iran on the eve of Israeli elections. The initial spate of questions hadn’t been answered adequately.

As the week went along, however, it became clear that the responses from all concerned to this attack that the those that took responsibility for it, the Houthis in North Yemen backed by Iranian technology, were the ones that did it.

And it all comes down to the same thing, the Saudi Aramco IPO.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, scuttling the Aramco deal, by making Saudi Arabia look incapable of defending its borders, and its oil refining capabilities, was the point all along?!?

I have a great deal of respect for Luongo, and his analyses, as in this case, may well be bang spot on.

I just hope and pray, that things stay quiet here; because if they do not, we may well be looking at the US government and Military, slogging their way, damn nearly unconsciously, into an horrendous war which may prove "past the point of no return" for all the countries enmeshed therein.

The U.S. Department of Terrorism

Department of State"

"The Iranian regime is the most destabilizing force in the Middle East and the world’s top sponsor of terrorism. That’s why the U.S. launched a campaign of maximum pressure. It’s producing maximum results."

This Big Lie production about Iran’s alleged malevolence toward its neighbors has dramatic music and graphics to support an obvious falsehood—Iran is the number one terror state in the world.

In fact, that designation is reserved for the United States government and its junior partner, Israel.

History is replete with examples—from both world wars to dozens of imperialist ignited brush fires including Vietnam and Iraq. As for Israel, it has been at war with its Arab neighbors for well over 70 years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As an American who cares about her country, and a Christian Pacifist Activist, it has been hard to process all of the information, with which children in a public school, are forced to endure.

The beauty; the soul; the kindness; ingenuity; enthusiasm, and generosity of individual Americans, are, unfortunately, never really represented by a US government which alleges that it represents us, but generally only in the worst ways possible.

Unfortunately, that has become the case with the Unhinged, surveilled, State of Amerika; public wars are waged against created enemies, with public money, ultimately for private gain.

The pattern is brazenly simple, in its execution; a country, with incredible resources, is vilified as "the enemy" throughout the corporate, presstitute media; then, efforts are made to regime change; install a western/US centric government in its place; then foreign governments are brought in to "expropriate" those resources, to which they have no moral right, and these resources only get sold in US dollars.

Wash; rinse; repeat.

And IF the US winds up going to war against Iran, with Russia already having stated: Iran won't stane alone if US attacks it through one of its highest-ranking diplomats last June, we are looking at the following line-up: Russia, Iran, (and possibly China), on Iran's side, with the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel on the other.

Unfortunately for both the US government and its weaponry makers, the US military proved itself completely impotent to prevent those two strikes against Saudi Arabian oil processing facilities a week ago; in fact, this could be construed as a 100% failure rate, on the part of US weapons, during that military encounter.

But the worst thing which can go wrong, has already gone horribly wrong, for both this US government and its State Department, right after 9/11, when we were told that both Afghanistan was "protecting Osama bin Laden", and Iraq had "weapons of mass destruction".

Both statements were lies, upon which military campaigns were premised, and during which a great number of American service members, died, or were crippled for life.

When any government decides that it is perfectly acceptable to lie, in order for the monied, to obtain the financial benefits of war, that government is no longer a reasonable, responsive, and cohesive voice of the people it allegedly represents.

It then becomes a monster, a frankenstein of its own creation, repeatedly lashing out against whoever, in the independent media, will not "peddle" their propaganda, and attempt to make life thoroughly miserable for them.

This.. is the current state of the Unhinged, Surveilled, State of Amerika.

And looking at past precedents in global history, I would suggest, that the state of this nation, will dissolve in one of two ways; either, a complete financial breakdown, or a world war which will bring about total destruction to the entire planet.

China, Russia, Iran ‘plan joint naval drill in international waters’

China, Russia and Iran are planning a joint naval drill in the Sea of Oman and northern Indian Ocean “soon”, a semi-official Iranian news outlet reported on Saturday, just days after the United States blamed Iran for a drone attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities.

General Ghadir Nezami Pour, head of international affairs and defence diplomacy of Iran’s General Staff of the Armed Forces, said the drill would take place in international waters, the Iran Press news agency reported.

“The exercises have different goals, including the exchange of tactical and military experiences, and sometimes they seek political goals which show a kind of convergence between participants,” he was quoted as saying.

“Officials at the level of defence minister, chief of staff of the armed forces and commanders of the armed forces will come to Iran in the near future and these actions reflect Iran’s active defence diplomacy,” he was quoted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that the Adults in the Bowels of Power in the US; Israel; and Saudi Arabia, are paying reasonably close attention to this evolving, shift of alliances.

And I would also like to politely point to President Trump, that these countries which have been the most maligned by him, ever since he came to office, have had a way of making such a relationship not only work militarily, but also economically.

All these countries are looking to,or already have "dumped" the US dollar in financial relationships, and are dealing with their national currencies only in their trade with each other.

Occupation good for Palestinians, says Israeli opposition chief

Benny Gantz, chief of the Israeli army during Israel’s 2014 massacre in Gaza, is borrowing apartheid South Africa’s talking points to boost his election campaign.

Gantz heads the allegedly center-left opposition coalition hoping to unseat Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel’s elections later this month.

In a campaign attack on Israel’s prime minister, Monday, Gantz declared that, unlike Netanyahu, he would have allowed US congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib to visit Israel and the occupied territories.

Had they visited, Gantz claimed, they would have seen “with their own eyes” that “the best place to be an Arab in the Middle East is in Israel … and the second best place to be an Arab in the Middle East is the West Bank.”

Gantz’s contention that Israeli military occupation and colonization is a blessing to Palestinians is a direct echo of South Africa’s apartheid rulers who insisted that their brutal white supremacist regime was good for Black people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not post this because it is "new news"; I am posting this, because I think that this is something which those Christians who are very loyal to Israel, and support it unthinkingly, really need to see, and understand.

I do not know what the Hebrew translation for "useful idiots" is, but I am quite certain that it is a muscularly derogatory comment, made frequently by those same leaders in Tel Aviv, plotting for the entire destruction of the Palestinian people, who love the money - and the adoration - which Christian Zionists who offer in huge amounts of both.

The Saudi Arabia Drone Attacks Have Changed Global Warfare

The devastating attack on Saudi oil facilities by drones and missiles not only transforms the balance of military power in the Middle East, but marks a change in the nature of warfare globally.
On the morning of 14 September, 18 drones and seven cruise missiles – all cheap and unsophisticated compared to modern military aircraft – disabled half of Saudi Arabia’s crude oil production and raised the world price of oil by 20 per cent.

Oil production facilities and the desalination plants providing much of the fresh water in Saudi Arabia are conveniently concentrated targets for drones and small missiles.

In other words, the military playing field will be a lot more level in future in a conflict between a country with a sophisticated air force and air defence system and one without. Similar turning points in military history have occurred when the deployment of an easily produced weapon suddenly checkmates the use of a more complicated one.

Crises – the Middle-East and a few hopefully useful pointers

The Middle-East is literally exploding: the Houthis have delivered an extremely effective blow against Saudi oil production which (so they claim) has now dropped by 50% before bouncing back; there are persistent rumors that Russian Su-35S and S-400 has threatened to shoot down Israeli aircraft attacking Syria; Lebanon has declared that it will defend itself against Israeli attacks; Hezbollah has been threatening to deliver crippling strikes on Israel and even Israeli officials; Turkey has purchased Russian air defenses and says that if the USA refuses to deliver their F-35S, then Turkey will consider Su-35s and even maybe Su-57’s. Bibi Netanyahu tried to use Putin for his reelection campaign (well, he really is trying desperately to stay out of jail) but had to go home empty handed and, according to the JP, his mission was a failure.

Saudi Arabia up in Flames: Riyadh Is Headed for a Major Disaster

The Saudi kingdom finds itself in an increasingly dangerous situation as a result of the retaliatory capacity of the Houthis, able to inflict severe military and economic damage on Riyadh with their missile forces. Estimates suggest that Riyadh is losing something in the region of $300 million a day from the Houthi attacks. On Sunday September 15, a spokesman for the Saudi oil ministry spoke of damage that is yet to be calculated, possibly requiring weeks of repair. Meanwhile, Saudi oil production has halved following the Saturday attack. With a military budget of $200,000, the Houthis managed to inflict damage numbering in the billions of dollars.

“Houthi Attack” on Saudi Oil Fields – a False Flag? The Financial Reaction Was Immediate

If it all sounds like a big fabricated confusion, it’s because it is a big fabricated confusion. Iran is singled out; fingers pointing to Iran (except, miraculously those of Saudi Arabia), like a sledgehammer hitting Iran, again and again. – The mainstream media loves it. Today, a week after the attack, most nobody remembers the Houthis claiming responsibility – it was Iran. Period. The media blitz won.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

France's Macron absolutely seemed to be on the correct track, when he sent a team of forensic specialists to Riyadh, to see what could be determined; but I am very concerned that before they have time to even open their scientific equipment, there will be a new, and devastating attack against Saudi Arabia, which will involve civilians, as this would create Saudia Arabia's "bloody shirt to wave/Pearl Harbor" moment.

I hope to hell that I am dead wrong on this scenario; but even with President Trump's having dispatched more US military personnel, and weaponry here, this may well not prevent another attack, if the first attacks ultimately received relatively little traction, and was about to get a true forensic investigation going.

Whoever attacks Iran will become ‘main battlefield’ – IRGC commander

The chief of Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has vowed to shoot down all drones violating the nation’s airspace and repel any aggressor. The warning came after the US accused Iran of hitting Saudi oil sites.
Tehran is ready for “any scenario,” and remains determined to fight back “until the full destruction of any aggressor,” IRGC commander, Major General Hossein Salami, told reporters at a news conference on Saturday.

“Whoever wants their land to become the main battlefield, go ahead,” he said.

Salami made his comments while showcasing the pieces of a US RQ-4 Global Hawk spy drone that was downed by the IRGC over the Strait of Hormuz in June. Iran claimed the drone had violated its airspace, though this was disputed by Washington. Salami vowed to “take action” against all foreign drones violating the nation’s borders.

“If anyone crosses our borders, we will hit them,” he stated.

Bibi’s out? Gantz refuses to meet with Netanyahu, says he will form unity govt without embattled PM

Benny Gantz, whose centrist bloc narrowly defeated Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party in a snap election, says he is forming a government that will exclude the current prime minister – signaling the end of Bibi’s era may be near.
The ex-IDF chief said on Thursday that he would not accept Netanyahu’s offer to discuss a unity government, keeping good on his campaign pledge to create a ruling coalition that does not include Bibi.

“I am interested and intend to form a broad and liberal unity government led by me,” he wrote in a tweet.

Speaking with reporters, Gantz stressed that his Blue and White alliance “will listen to everyone, but we will not accept mandates imposed on us” – an apparent swipe at Netanyahu’s insistence that the pair should meet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bibi ran on some kind of charismatic hubris, rather than a real plan with which to move Israel forward, economically which can only diminish with time.

Netanyahu has brought this country to its knees, geopolitically, and economically, and should take some responsibility for losing to Gantz; but of course, that will only happen when pigs discover they are aerodynamic.

Doubting Iran Link, Macron Sends French Experts to Investigate Saudi Oil Attack

French President Emmanuel Macron is deploying experts to Saudi Arabia to investigate the origin of the attacks on major oil facilities that Washington and Riyadh blame on Iran, Paris said Wednesday.
France’s presidential palace announced Macron’s decision to send the experts after the French leader held a phone conversation with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MBS), the Agence France-Presse (AFP) news agency reports.

The United States and Saudi Arabia have accused Iran of carrying out Saturday’s devastating attacks on two facilities operated by the Sunni kingdom’s state-run Aramco. Macron’s administration appears to doubt Iran’s involvement in the debilitating attacks. Iran also denies involvement in the assault on the two plants, which include the top petroleum processing facility in the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Macron is doing the logical thing here, and precisely what Russia's President Putin called for a couple of days ago; a fully unbiased examination of the results, to understand what actually happened here.

BREAKING: Iran Will Secure Maritime Borders, Give ‘Crushing Reaction’ to Any Aggression, Navy Commander Says

Earlier, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Major General Hossein Salami, said that any country that attacks Iran would be the "main battlefield".

Iran's Navy Commander Hossein Khanzadi has said that Tehran is prepared to defend its maritime borders and will respond with a "crushing reaction" to any aggression by enemies.

Earlier, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said that Iran will not allow anyone to violate its borders. He added that the Islamic Republic extends the hand of friendship to all of its neighbours.

Iran will present a proposal to the UN on how it intends to cooperate with other countries in the region to ensure the security of the Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz, according to Rouhani.

 LIZ CHENEY AND THE DAUGHTERS OF CREATIVE DESTRUCTION

It is rather bizarre Liz Cheney, the daughter of Dick Cheney, would cofound Keep America Safe (now defunct) with a neocon talking head, Bill Kristol. The forever war outfit was funded by Mel Sembler, an Israel-first real estate tycoon who is a good friend of Bibi Netanyahu.
Cheney has absolutely no interest in keeping America safe. She is calling for an immediate attack on Iran.

From The Hill:

House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said on Wednesday the U.S. should consider a “proportional military response” against Iran, among other potential actions, over its suspected involvement in drone attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil supply.

Trump says going into Iran would be a "very easy decision"

President Trump said going into Iran would be a "very easy" decision, but he's showing restraint. Mr. Trump made the comments during a news conference alongside Australian prime minister Scott Morrison Friday, after announcing new sanctions leveled against Iran.

"We are by far the strongest military in the world," Mr. Trump said. "Going into Iran would be a very easy decision, as I've said before — would be very easy, the easiest thing. Most people thought I would go in within two seconds but plenty of time, plenty of time," the president said. "In the meantime, they have a lot of problems within Iran. Iran could be a great country, could be a rich country. But they are choosing to go a different way. There'll be a point at which they'll be very sorry for that choice. But I think I'm showing great restraint."

Who Needs John Bolton? Trump’s Neocons Are Determined to Go to War Against Iran

Make no mistake, the neocons are still in the White House and they want a war. The neocons or the neoconservatives want the U.S. to promote its form of democracy throughout the world and want to ensure its interests takes center stage in international relations through its military power.

Without any evidence, Pompeo was quick to blame Iran.

Did Saudi Arabia give the “smoking gun” evidence to Washington? What will the Trump and his neocon war mongers do now? Remember when Iran was blamed for the attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman? The Trump regime was quick to point fingers at Iran.

"Suspiciously Well Placed": First Images Of Crippling Damage To Giant Khurais Oil Field Revealed

Much of the attention concerning the crippling damage to Saudi Aramco facilities struck in last week's aerial attack ultimately blamed on "Iranian sponsorship" by US and Saudi officials has focused on Abqaiq processing plant, but on Friday the first on the ground images from the kingdom's giant Khurais oil field — the country's second largest — have been revealed, showing scorched infrastructure, ruptured pipelines, and "a mess of oil melted to asphalt, twisted and charred metal grates" according to an on site Bloomberg report.

And yet Aramco has remained insistent that the field will return to pre-attack output levels this month, after the company reported losing half its daily output in the aftermath of the early Saturday attacks, impacting a whopping 5% of total global supply.

Per Bloomberg, Khurais has a capacity of 1.45 million barrels a day, processing all oil on site; however the attack took out four 300-foot towers essential to the production process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, an inside job by aided and abetted by dissident Saudis, or a false flag by Israel, for which the Houthi took the credit?!?

This almost doesn't matter, because if there are more strikes, my sense is that they will be done over highly civilian-occupied targets, insuring that Saudi Arabia has its own "bloody shirt to wave"; in the end, the US and Saudi Arabia, will continue to blame the attacks against Iran, because that will be the "justification" for the US and Saudi Arabia attacking Iran.

Pentagon to Present Trump, Aides With a ‘Range’ of Iran Military Options

Though President Trump has downplayed the idea of war with Iran over the past couple of days, the actual decision is to be made at a high-profile meeting, either Thursday or Friday depending according to reports.

Trump will be joined by a number of national security officials and other aides, and will be presented with a wide array of options by the Pentagon. Options are said to range from full-scale war to a simple cyberattack.

Gen. Joe Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was very clear about the Pentagon not pushing any specific agenda on this matter, saying the response would be purely a “political judgement.”

Among Trump’s officials, Pompeo is seen as the one pushing hardest for a military response. He’s been in Saudi Arabia meeting with officials there, and probably will come back all the more hawkish.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The overnights of the last polls on this issue, showed that only 13% of Americans believed that an attack against Iran was the right thing to do.

Of course, these attacks happened at around 4 AM in the morning, when most probably the least amount of personnel were tending to these buildings; but were I a betting person, I would not bet against another Houthi attack, or an Israeli false flag.

At that point, the presstitutes will definitely be using the banner "This is the Saudi's Pearl Harbor moment!!!!!"

I sincerely hope that the American people, who have been at war over 20 years, with nothing terribly substantial having been won for them, will continue to be skeptical and demand the facts.

Because logic and facts are the only things which may, with enough energy applied to them, be the only things holding this country back from initiating a Third World War.

Saudi-led coalition strikes Yemen’s Hodeidah in wake of refinery attacks claimed by Houthis

The Saudi-led coalition has launched a new military operation north of Hodeidah, the crucial port city where nearly all of Yemen’s scarce food and other supplies are delivered, against what it called “legitimate military targets,” state-run Ekhbariya TV reported on Friday.

The coalition put out a call to civilians to keep clear of the operation’s targets, even though it is unclear how much of the Yemeni population – 80 percent of which are in various states of humanitarian crisis after more than five years of bombardment – would watch Saudi television to know what sites to stay away from.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like Saudi Arabia (with US assistance) is continuing to bomb infants; children; women; and the fragile medical elderly in Yemen.

Were I Saudi, American or UAE intel person, I would take the Houthis at their word, when they talk about future strikes; but this time, unlike the other strikes, done on the 14th, I think you can count strikes against Saudi Arabia to include non-coms as well, just as have the Saudi/US strikes killed non-coms during Saudi/US strikes against Yemen.

I hope like hell that I am wrong on this; because one more strike, particularly involving civilians, will give Tel Aviv, and the Hawks in DC the "propaganda ammo" they need, causing them to close ranks, and demand that Trump strike Iran, to "protect" the Saudi Arabia oil infrastructure, and destroy Iran's oil infrastructure.

We have a couple of other articles I am going to link to, from "whatdoesitmean.com", which I think are significant here:

Saudis unveil "e vidence", that attacks were unquestionably sponsored by Iran, as the show drone missile debris

NO PROOF Tehran launched oil plant attack, but still expects the USA to do its dirty work for them.

Putin Calls for Unbiased Investigation of Saudi Aramco Attacks in Talks With Crown Prince

Saudi Aramco's oil refinery was severely crippled in an attack on 14 September, which has been claimed by Yemen’s Houthi movement. Despite this, the US has claimed it has evidence that it was in fact Iran that was behind the incident, something which the country has vehemently denied.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has during talks with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman called for an unbiased investigation to be carried out into the recent attack on Saudi oil facilities on 14 September, the president's press service reported.

"The issue of the attack on Saudi oil refineries has been discussed [during talks]. Vladimir Putin expressed his concern with regard to the situation and has called for conducting a thorough and unbiased investigation of the incident", the statement said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin's call for an "unimpeded, unbiased investigation" into these attacks was a stroke of absolute brilliance; such an investigation will need to be carried out through a time framework which, in the most forensically correct manner, will require that the individuals doing this work, will have all the time necessary, to come to a reasonable, fact-centric conclusion.

I sincerely hope that President Putin's proposal will be put into action; and President Trump, please feel just the tiniest bit of gratitude for what Putin has done for you, with this request/challenge; this can buy you time to make sure that Saudi Arabia is actually protected by American weaponry (which it was NOT, when the attacks hit)

What Putin is urging here, is a "way out", potentially, for the US and Iran to work out their differences on a number of issues.

But sadly, there are way too many, in the Bowels of Power, internationally, who would love to see this cascade into a world war, featuring Israel, the US, and Saudi Arabia on one side of the conflict, and Russia, China, and Iran, on the other.

I sure hope to hell that I am wrong on this, and that logic, and lucidity can triumph, and "win the day"; but whoever did this wants a war now, and this may just accelerate their plans for more ever-more-vicious targeting of Saudi oil infrastructure; the Saudi military; and Saudi civilians.

‘NYT’ gives Netanyahu platform to race-bait Palestinian parties as ‘terrorists’ — without letting them respond

Right at the beginning of the New York Times‘s big article yesterday on the Israeli election, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was given space to race-bait the group of Palestinian political parties in the campaign. Netanyahu said:

There won’t be, there can’t be a government that relies on the anti-Zionist Arab parties, parties that deny Israel’s very existence as a Jewish and democratic state. . . Parties that glorify and praise bloodthirsty terrorists who murder our soldiers, our citizens and our children. That simply cannot be.

When Donald Trump tells racist lies, the New York Times calls him out on it. Not here. It wasn’t until the 34th paragraph that the paper even quoted Palestinian leader Ayman Odeh — and it didn’t let Odeh counter the dishonest allegation that he “glorifies bloodthirsty terrorists.”
