2019 interview with Satan: what evil is, what the Dark Side wants, evil’s offer in the revolution for human souls

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Premise: Earth is in historic revolution at four levels:

1. Ongoing US illegal rogue state empire is the latest of millennia to colonize targeted “slave” groups (human resources), and parasitize natural resources. Current annual costs include killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions. The empire’s naked lies, repeated in controlled corporate media and public education, can be recognized and ended in a relative Emperor’s New Clothes moment.

Ongoing Effort to Free Ross Supported by 100 Eminent Organizations and Individuals

By Jamie Redman

Ross Ulbricht’s clemency petition is closing in on 160,000 signatures stemming from individuals asking U.S. President Donald Trump to pardon Ulbricht. In addition to the vast number of signatures, roughly 100 eminent organizations and well-known figures have supported Ulbricht’s effort, many of whom have written a statement on Ulbricht’s behalf in order to speak out against his draconian double-life prison sentence for creating a website...

VIDEO: HOW THE PENTAGON AND CIA PUSH VENEZUELA REGIME-CHANGE PROPAGANDA IN VIDEO GAMES

We often think of video games as fiction, but the US government has weaponized them to advance its agenda around the globe. Nowhere is this more clear than in Venezuela, where the US military has laundered regime change propaganda through some of the world’s most popular first-person shooter games. This March, amid a US-backed right-wing coup attempt overseen by the Donald Trump administration, Venezuela experienced a sudden collapse of its electrical infrastructure, plunging the country into darkness.

May 11 - Demonstrate for Palestine - 12 noon Portland Place, London

Palestinian activists are talking of a 'new Naqba', a new catastrophe. The murderous attacks on the Right to Return marches are one part of a much wider assault. Most seriously, with the full backing of Donald Trump, a new Netanyahu government looks set to start annexing parts of the West Bank.

Such a move would be an open declaration by Israel and its Western backers that the recognition of Palestine is off the table.

In these circumstances, it is vital the whole of the movement stands with the Palestinians and that we defy the attempts that have been made over the last year to silence us.

Sudan protests continue, demand civilian government

Thousands of Sudanese demonstrators camped outside the defence ministry in Khartoum to push for a civilian government, defying a curfew and calling for mass prayers after the military overthrew Omar Al-Bashir after 30 years of autocratic rule.

Demonstrators who have been holding almost daily anti-Bashir protests rejected the decision to set up a transitional military council to run the country for two years and vowed to continue protests until a civilian government is established.

U.S. Day of Action Demanding Telecoms Suspend 5G Installation Since No Studies Show 5G Exposure is Safe

20+ arrested, leader fined: Yellow Vest protests open ‘Act 21’ in France

More than a dozen people have been arrested as Yellow Vest protesters flood the streets of French cities, marking the 21st consecutive week of mass demonstrations against President Emmanuel Macron and his government.

Some 21 protesters were arrested in Paris on Saturday morning, local media reported, citing police. Eric Drouet, one of the leaders of the Yellow Vests, was fined 135 euro ($150) for violating public protest laws. The ruling was slammed by his lawyer who said that “if Drouet wants to have a cup of coffee at the Champs-Elysees, he has an absolute right to do so.”

German ‘rent insanity’ sparks mass tenant protests, expropriation action

Germans in large cities are protesting on Saturday against what they see as the unfair influence of large landlords on the housing market. They want the biggest players undercut and their property expropriated.

In past years, German people living in larger cities saw a wave of gentrification and rising rent levels. Some of the tenants couldn’t keep up and had to move out, while others had to leave when owners of their homes decided to tear them down and build new, more expensive property, which could generate more profits.

The situation in Berlin was among the most acute, with rent doubling over a decade. Some attempts by the authorities to rein in the growth, like the so-called rent-break in 2015, were underwhelming.

A large number of Syrian Democratic Forces have joined the Syrian Army in Hasaka Province as the SDF has launched widespread forced recruitment of fighters in areas under its control in Eastern Syria, field sources said.
"Over 200 SDF fighters have recently defected and surrendered to the Syrian Army in Hasaka province," the battlefield sources in Hasaka province reported.

The sources reiterated that the Kurdish forces have forced over 1,000 young people in Hasaka to join the SDF over the past month by conducting large-scale arrests and raids in areas under their control in Raqqa, Manbij, Hasaka and Deir Ezzur.

White House Aide: US to Pump Money Into Venezuela After Regime Change

In a special briefing for the Christian Science Monitor, President Trump’s top economic adviser Larry Kudlow revealed that the administration is already working with banks internationally in plans to greatly increase US investment in Venezuela if there is a regime change.

President Trump has demanded immediate regime change, with Venezuela’s president to be replaced by their opposition leader, who is seen as more pro-US. Kudlow says there is a “Day Two” plan to see huge influxes of cash if and when that happens.

This is in keeping with the Trump Administration’s belief that it can effectively shut down the economy of a disobedient nation, and then miraculously turn things around at a moment’s notice once they comply.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, please, but WHAT THE HELL ARE THESE PEOPLE THINKING?!?

Juan Guaido cannot seem to muster any significant popular support; in fact, he has been physically attacked by Maduro supporters; the military is still loyal to Maduro, and I cannot imagine how this guy is going to pull off a "regime change" in Venezuela, particularly now with the presence of both Russian and Chinese troops.

Am I missing something here, other than the utterly hubristic thinking of those in the bowels of power in DC?!?

Q: White Hat insiders exposing + arresting .01% rogue state criminals, OR Black Hats lowering the bar of corporate media ‘reporting’ + public gun confiscations + total censorship of ‘unofficial’ speech for their endgame?

1. We the People are massively and continuously dominated by a .01% “wanna-be empire class” with ongoing lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression, Crimes Against Humanity killing hundreds of millions with intentional and preventable poverty, and looting tens of trillions (and here).
2. I’ve speculated whether Q is true or PsyOp. Either way, .01% arrests OR the following escalating tyranny is crucially important for our attention:
~lowering the bar of corporate media “reporting,”
~ongoing false flags for public gun confiscations,
~censorship of “crazy conspiracy theories” disagreeing with “official and credible sources,”
~US illegal rogue state empire (as usual) including with Trump dictating Venezuela’s democracy overthrown (and likely also “overthrowing” their electrical power), supporting Israel’s illegal War of Aggression on Gaza, war-mongering on Iran since Operation Iraqi Liberation (O.I.L.), etc., etc.,

Syrian people in different provinces continued protest rallies against the recent decision of US President Donald Trump to recognize annexation of the occupied Golan Heights of Syria to Israel.

large group of residents and activists in different cities and towns of Quneitra, Sweida, Deir Ezzur, Homs and Damascus provinces poured to the streets on Sunday to condemn Trump's measure.

They said that Trump's remarks will not change the Arab-Syrian identity of the Golan Heights, and urged the necessity for the liberation of the region as soon as possible.

The protestors also blasted the US-Israeli attempts to rise tensions and undermine the Syrian nation and army's achievements in the war on terrorism>>>

Danger to Democracy? 2018 Democrats Say Their Elections Were Stolen

Just last week, one of those morons over at CNN wasted 1,000 words or so telling us how President Donald Trump is setting us up to disbelieve the results of the 2020 election. Trump, this fool wrote, was a danger to democracy who could attempt to stage a revolution if he loses to a Democrat. It was full of all the same apocalyptic fury we heard in 2016, when Trump suggested that he would “let us know” whether he would dispute the results of that election. By casting doubts about the integrity of our voting system, these leftists worried, Trump was positioning himself as a would-be dictator. A menace. A bringer of the downfall of the republic.

And so forth.

Last weekend, French police banned protests on the Champs-Elysees and in its vicinity. Similar precautionary measures were taken by police in the French cities of Nice, Marseille and Metz.

Moreover, ahead of the 20th Yellow Vests protests, French President Emmanuel Macron has announced that Operation Sentinelle troops have been mobilised to help maintain security in Paris and across the country. According to the French government, troops have only been deployed to guard symbolic sites.

Firing on Protesters: Will Macron’s New Tactics Against the Yellow Vests Make Simmering Pot Boil Over?

A 73-year-old activist is the latest casualty of French President Emmanuel Macron’s crackdown on the Gilets Jaunes protest movement. Geneviève Legay of the anti-globalization group Attac had her skull fractured by police in Nice as they charged at her during the nineteenth consecutive week of protests against the president’s unpopular austerity and tax policies. The feminist campaigner and grandmother was carrying a rainbow flag marked “peace” as she was attacked, in what her family calls “willful violence” in an official complaint.

The embattled president went after Legay, currently in serious condition in the hospital, lecturing her on her “irresponsibility” for being in a “prohibited” area, claiming that, “when one is fragile and risks being shoved, one does not go to places that are declared off-limits and one does not put oneself in that kind of situation,” adding that he wished her “a speedy recovery…and perhaps a kind of wisdom.”

Large groups of people in different Syrian provinces continued rallies for several consecutive days to protest at US President Donald Trump's recognition of Israeli occupation over Syria's Golan Heights.

The Arabic-language service of SANA news agency reported that a large number of people and civil activists in different parts of Syria, including Hasaka, Quneitra, Aleppo and Sweida, held protest rallies to condemn Trump's decision.

Protestors slammed Trump for declaring Israel's sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights, stressing that the Syrian nation may never compromise its sovereignty right over the region.

Three Lessons for the Progressive Left from the Mueller Inquiry

The left never had a dog in this race. This was always an in-house squabble between different wings of the establishment. Late-stage capitalism is in terminal crisis, and the biggest problem facing our corporate elites is how to emerge from this crisis with their power intact. One wing wants to make sure the pig’s face remains painted, the other is happy simply getting its snout deeper into the trough while the food lasts.

Russiagate was never about substance, it was about who gets to image-manage the decline of a turbo-charged, self-harming neoliberal capitalism.

The leaders of the Democratic party are less terrified of Trump and what he represents than they are of us and what we might do if we understood how they have rigged the political and economic system to their permanent advantage.

Macron under fire for 'patronising' injured gilets jaunes protester

Emmanuel Macron has been accused of patronising a 73-year-old gilets jaunes (yellow vests) protester who sustained a fractured skull after riot police charged demonstrators in an off-limits area of Nice.

Geneviève Legay was taken to hospital with serious head injuries on Saturday. Jean-Michel Prêtre, the Nice public prosecutor, said an investigation had been opened but it appeared Legay had hit her head on a concrete bollard as police tried to clear protesters.

Macron, who was in Nice on Monday along with the Chinese president, Xi Jinping, who is visiting France, told the Nice-Matin newspaper he wished Legay a “speedy recovery”, but simultaneously criticised her.

“When one is fragile and risks being shoved, one does not go to places that are declared off-limits and one does not put oneself in that kind of situation,” he said.

Now let us look at laws and courts which punish any questioning of the notorious murder of Six Million victims in World War II. Was it a historical fact, or not? If it was true, then to question it can be bad if the damage done is bad enough, but if the murder never took place, then it is in accordance with truth to call it in question, and not only is it not bad, it is positively good, to call it in question.

He vowed that the protestors would take "resolute practical steps" if those demands are not met and if a transitional government, charged with holding early elections within six months, is not formed.

French President Emmanuel Macron, who many blame for the violence unleashed on Yellow Vest protesters, said he hopes one elderly protester whose head was severely injured during a demonstration gains “wisdom” over her injury.

Genevieve Legay, a French anti-globalization activist, was knocked over by officers wielding batons at an unauthorized rally in Nice last week. She fell and hit her head on a metal post before being rushed to the hospital for trauma care.

The incident was widely covered in French media, and Macron predictably was asked to comment on it. His response is unlikely to sit well with the Yellow Vests: “I wish her a speedy recovery, and perhaps a form of wisdom.”

WATCH Yellow Vests Protest in Paris as TROOPS Allowed to Open Fire if Threatened

This weekend's wave of 'Yellow Vests' protests arrived in Paris on Saturday despite a ban on protesting along the Champs-Elysees, which was announced by French Prime Minister Edouard Phillippe after violence erupted last weekend.

Ahead of the 19th Saturday seeing Yellow Vests protests in France, troops have been mobilised to help the police focus on protecting public order in Paris. The military can go as far as opening fire if their life or the life of people they defend are threatened, Gen. Bruno Leray, Paris military governor, said Friday.

French police have banned protests on the Champs-Elysees and in its vicinity, which had been slated to take place this Saturday, 23 March, according to their statement. Similar precautionary measures have been taken by police in the French cities of Nice, Marseille and Metz.

Inside the Yellow Vests: What the Western media will not report

While the Yellow Vests (Gilets Jaunes) protests actually began on 17.11.18, I think most are aware that frustration with the government has been building for many, many years. Sarkozy certainly played a big role in this. Deep-rooted contractions have been left unaddressed while offshore accounts were filled up. Without wanting to dedicate a lot of space to the details of each French government since the last massive riots in 1968, I think it is easier to proceed from the fact that France has been essentially occupied by America for decades. For me personally, this helps to explain a lot.

If, for instance, she agrees in Brussels on Thursday on the conditional short extension offered by Donald Tusk on Wednesday ; if she gets her third “meaningful vote” motion past the Speaker next week; if her MPs take Tusk’s offer seriously; if she proves better at persuading enough of them to back her deal than in the past, then – just possibly – it may all seem to have been worthwhile. Or at least it may do so for about 48 hours, until the leadership challenge begins and the policy conflicts of the next – and longer – phase of Brexit negotiations with the EU start to split her party yet again.

Top US General Denies Plans to Leave 1,000 Troops in Syria

US Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Joe Dunford issued a statement Monday denying weekend media reports that the US plans to leave around 1,000 troops in Syria, saying the reports are “factually incorrect.”

Dunford presented the current planned “residual force” as 200, saying that this hadn’t changed since February. The US announced 200 would stay on February 21, but on February 22 officially increased that number to 400.

It’s not clear from Dunford’s statement where the “incorrect” aspect of the new report, which came out of a Wall Street Journal, exists. That report suggested that the 1,000 figure was not yet finalized, but was being discussed.

I think the multiple troop numbers being given, are simply a way of creating confusion about how many US troops the US does have in Syria.

'How is the Paris accord working out for France?' Trump says Yellow Vest violence in French capital is caused by anger over environmental agreement as 'stretched' police arrest 25 rioters after cars are torched and shops are trashed

President Trump says that the ongoing rioting in France is caused by dissatisfaction with the Paris accord on climate change.

‘How is the Paris Environmental Accord working out for France?’ Trump tweeted on Saturday.

‘After 18 weeks of rioting by the Yellow Vest Protesters, I guess not so well!

‘In the meantime, the United States has gone to the top of all lists on the Environment.’

It is unclear what Trump was referring to.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dear Mr. President.

The Yellow Vests are not protesting about the climate.

They are protesting about oppressive economic conditions and the effects of uncontrolled migration.

No wonder you don't seem to make sense.

Mother And Child Saved From Paris Bank Fire During Yellow Vest Riot

Surreal footage has emerged of a bank going up in flames after France's Yellow Vests were back in full swing on Saturday following a brief lull at the end of President Macron's unsuccessful 'great debate' - during which thousands of town halls were conducted over a two-month period in the hopes of solving national issues through citizen debates.

But now protests turned to riots are quickly returning to being potentially deadly with a number of dramatic close calls on Saturday.

“The bankers will favor a course of special legislation to increase their power…They will never cease to ask for more, …so long as there is more that can be wrung from the toiling masses of the American People…The struggle with this money power has been going on from the beginning of the history of this country.”

No hope for change: Parisians say Macron’s ‘great debate’ was a PR stunt

France has ended two months of citizen debates in which Yellow Vest supporters were invited to air their grievances. Parisians who spoke with RT said the meetings were a stunt used by Emmanuel Macron and won’t lead to real change.

The French president launched his “great debate” in mid-January in response to the popular Yellow Vest protest movement. Up to 500,000 people participated in 10,000 meetings nationwide, with discussion topics ranging from taxes to the environment. The national dialogue has been credited with giving Macron a much-needed boost in the polls – but few seem optimistic that the debates will lead to concrete changes.

“It would surprise me if he takes any measures, but I don’t expect anything,” one Yellow Vest supporter told RT.

Florida advances bill to shield Israel from criticism

A resolution recently introduced in the Missouri state legislature would affirm that boycotts are protected political expression.

The measure, sponsored by Black progressive lawmaker Brandon Ellington, says that “criticism of a nation by individuals, including as a nonviolent citizens’ boycott, does not constitute bigotry against the citizens of that nation.”

It upholds the constitutional right to boycott “any entity when [people] have conscientious concerns with the entity’s policies or actions,” adding that the state should not “punish individuals” for supporting boycotts by denying them contracts.

According to the resolution, boycotts are “an expression of encouraging the government of the nation to modify its policies and practices to uphold the inalienable human rights of all people within its borders.”

French MPs approve anti-riot bill amid Yellow Vest protests, rights watchdog sounds alarm

The upper house of the French parliament has greenlighted a bill giving police broad powers to quell unrest. It comes as a rights watchdog warned of civil liberties being undermined in France due to crackdowns on protest.
Following hours of tense debate on Tuesday, the French Senate approved an anti-hooligan ('anti-casseurs') bill by a margin of 210 votes to 115.

The bill has courted widespread controversy, having been denounced as "liberticide" by the left, and hailed as a "the law of protections" by the French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner.

Concerns over the Trump administration's increasingly hostile policy in Venezuela grew Tuesday after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the U.S. was withdrawing all diplomatic personnel from the country.

Trump is trying to pay his way to an annihilation of Palestinian statehood, and an erasure of Israel’s crimes

“Palestine” has been compared to many things. The world’s longest colonial war, a “hell-disaster” – Churchill’s memorable epithet – and the site of Israel’s “war on terror”, a conflict in which we are supposed to believe that the Palestinians are playing the role of al-Qaeda or Isis or any other outfit which the west and its allies have helped into existence, and which Israel is going to fight on our behalf.

But there are times when Palestine turns out to have been located in the Bermuda Triangle. The Palestinians disappear. They cease to exist. They are forgotten, irrelevant, outside the landscape of fear, pain, injustice and occupation that we once heard about so often. No one can imagine what has happened to these Palestinians. Like the aircraft and boats which strayed into the mythical triangle, they shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Sad to see them go. But it’s a mystery.

‘A fine line separates life and death for women in Gaza’ during 50th week of the Great March of Return

Fifty weeks have passed since the Great March of Return demonstrations began at the fence separating the Gaza Strip and Israel. Since March 30, protesters in Gaza have demanded the right to return to their homes and villages in historical Palestine, and demanded an end to Israel’s 12-year blockade of the Gaza Strip, which has gutted the coastal enclave’s economy and deprived its roughly two million inhabitants of many basic commodities. Palestinian woman have been a part of the protests from the beginning. According to Gaza Health Ministry, more than 250 Palestinians have been killed during the Great March of Return, including six women.

On this Friday, more than 7,000 Gazans demonstrated, more than half of them women after the leaders of the protest called for Palestinians to join in the “Friday of Palestinian women” in honor of International Women’s Day.

Thousands of Russians protest against internet restrictions

Lawmakers last month backed tighter internet controls contained in legislation they say is necessary to prevent foreign meddling in Russia’s affairs. But some Russian media likened it to an online “iron curtain” and critics say it can be used to stifle dissent.

People gathered in a cordoned off Prospekt Sakharova street in Moscow, made speeches on a stage and chanted slogans such as “hands off the internet” and “no to isolation, stop breaking the Russian internet”.

The rally gathered around 15,300 people, according to White Counter, an NGO that counts participants at rallies. Moscow police put the numbers at 6,500.

“If we do nothing it will get worse. The authorities will keep following their own way and the point of no return will be passed”, said 28-year-old protester Dmitry, who declined to give his full name.

Actually, we need more of that sort of thing here to deal with the censorship being imposed on our internet!
