A Nativity scene (or a Menorah for that matter) is not a law, it is a decoration. And on that basis, even though I myself am an atheist, I do not have a problem with Nativity scenes on government property, other than they are a reminder that those are the people we are bombing to steal their oil.

I do draw the line at the Ten Commandments being on display on government buildings with its prohibitions against lying, theft, and killing, as that clearly is a case of false advertising!" -- Michael Rivero

Trump Issues Pardon for Ex-NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik

As with so many “news media” reports now it’s what is NOT REPORTED that is the real news. The following is a case in point. Whether intentional or not, key elements are missing in the NBC report and they constitute the pivotal point in the following story.

Comment – JuneBug1415 on Reddit
Bernard Kerik accepted a “loan” of $250k from Israel billionaire when meeting with Israel to discuss counter-terrorism 2 weeks before 9/11. And oh yea, he was the police commissioner that oversaw 9/11, was pardoned today.
Today Trump has granted clemency or pardoned 11 people all convicted of corruption. But the one that bothers me the most is Kerik.
He accepted a $250,000 interest-free “loan” from Israeli billionaire Eitan Wertheimer and failed to report it. Kerik first met the billionaire, whose vast holdings include major defense contractors, when Kerik took a four-day trip to Israel less than two weeks before September 11, 2001 to discuss counter-terrorism with Israeli officials.

Russia Is Defeating The U.S. In The Middle East Oil Game

Authored by Simon Watkins via OilPrice.com,

Historically, Russia goes to great lengths to hide or disguise its strategic intentions but it clearly feels empowered enough in the Middle East to very obviously stake its claim in the region – excluding, for the time being only, Saudi Arabia – by stating that a slew of Russian companies are to spend up to US$20 billion on oil projects in Iraq in the near term.

“Since [U.S. President Donald] Trump outlined the new U.S. foreign policy of not engaging in conflicts abroad unless they were directly aligned with U.S. interests [October 2019], and then effectively withdrawing from Syria and from supporting the Kurds, Russia and China have felt that they can bring forward their plans to bring Iraq within their geopolitical arc of influence,” a senior source who works closely with Iraq’s Oil Ministry told OilPrice.com last week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And after all the US blood and money spent, who actually won in Iraq?!?

Folks, read 'em and weep; it is China and Russia; NOT the USA.

Iraq, China launch 'oil for reconstruction' agreement

America’s Failed Strategy in the Middle East: Losing Iraq and the Gulf

This article goes on to state: "More broadly, the United States has steadily lost the confidence of its Arab strategic partners in the Gulf region. The United States ignored their advice during the invasion in 2003 – making Iran the dominant military power in the northern Gulf while also turning Iraq into a constant source of unstable weaknesses and concern. Beginning with President Obama, the United States has bullied its allies over burden sharing even when they were spending some 10% of their GDP on military forces – raising growing questions about U.S. willingness to main its military role in the Gulf and support the security of its allies. The United States has instead sanctioned and provoked Iran – without effectively deterring it or properly reacting to Iranian military actions – stood by as China created a major base and port facility in Djibouti, and enabled Russia, Turkey, and China to become growing players in Gulf affairs."

And then we have the following story from last September, which of course, never made it to the presstitute corporate press: Russia’s Stroytransgaz Bags Iraq E&P Deal The article goes on to state: "Iraq’s Oil Ministry has signed up US-sanctioned firm Stroytransgaz to explore and potentially develop reserves in the western Anbar province. The yet-to-be-finalized deal sees yet another Russian firm target Iraq’s underexplored acreage.
Russian firm Stroytransgaz was awarded a 34-year contract this week to explore and produce oil and gas in western Iraq’s Block 17, a ministry statement confirms."

How in the name of heaven was this allowed to happen, under the watch of successive administrations, including those of President George Bush; President Barak Obama; and President Donald Trump?!?

One would have thought that somehow, such an outcome would never have been allowed by any of these administrations, let alone all of them; and yet, looking at current events, this outcome was allowed to happen

The only logical explanation to which I can attach any possible credence, is that no matter which party was actually in control, and (allegedly) in charge of the government, the people who were hired to run these scenarios, were utterly, pathologically incapable of seeing any of them through to their most logical conclusions.

Or, when these logical conclusions were expressed to superiors, they were shouted down, courtesy of a collective US leadership hubris, infused with the collective "magical belief" that their "vision" could ultimately trump the butt-ugly prognostications of the people they hired to actually, logically, figure out how these potential scenarios would play out.

This has caused some tremendous info-gaps, at the White House, Pentagon, State Department, and Congress, and this needs to be addressed, and corrected, ASAP; of course, the question must be asked; with so much credibility blown by agencies responsible for US foreign policy, which one will be willing to take the blame?!?

The short answer is, "Absolutely none!", which means that the US is going to continue to advocate, and embrace, an absolutely dysfunctional, disjunct; and dystopian foreign policy, right up until this bites us, collectively, in a very sensitive place in the human anatomy; and when that moment hits, unfortunately, it may well be too late to change course.

The Intolerance Of The "Tolerant" Left: The End Of Liberal Democracy?

Authored by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff via The Gatestone Institute,

We recently witnessed two events that indicated the possible demise of liberal democracy. The implications should frighten supporters of democratic forms of government in which individual rights and freedoms are officially recognized and protected, and the exercise of political power is limited by the rule of law.

The growing intolerance of many "left-wing" groups is apparent in the uproar of the democratic election of the state premier of the German state of Thuringia as well as in the performance of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, publicly ripping up US President Donald J. Trump's State of the Union address. It was an official document that belongs not to her but to the public, and of which she was merely its custodian.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a 70 year old great-auntie with a really messed up back, who wishes no one any physical harm, and comes down squarely,but gently, as a little more conservative than liberal, those people who believe that violence against me, for what I believe, scare the utter crud out of me.

And I would like to politely remind people who believe that acting in such a manner is "rational", that just because you have silenced someone, does not mean that you have changed their mind.

New Estimates Suggest Chinese Tech Shipments Are About To Crash

Now that Apple has opened the floodgates and made it entirely clear that China's economic collapse will slash revenue guidance on the year and lead to production woes through April, an onslaught of earnings downgrades from other top technology companies with significant operations in China could be imminent.

Evidence grows by the day of supply chains grinding to a halt as the second-largest economy in the world falters (as described here last week)...

We've described how China's economic output remains frozen, and even if supply chains were able to restart, companies don't have enough capital to cover wages, or have delayed or stopped paying workers, suggesting that the Covid-19 outbreak has left businesses on the brink of disaster. Worse, workers can't freely move around the country, and many are subjected to travel restrictions and quarantines, which has forced a massive labor shortage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all of you who like your "big box shops", whatever the names of those venues might be; if there is any stuff you buy which originates in China, now might be the time to stockpile, because with Chinese factories and fulfillment centers shut down, it might be quite a while before those products come in again.

NATO Top Military Officer: 'Defender 20' Is Facing Problems

EU Auto Registrations Plunge In Dismal Pre-Coronavirus January Numbers

For months we have been commenting about how the global auto market is mired in recession. Most recently, we have been highlighting how China, one of the world's largest economies and auto markets, has been exacerbating things with terrible sales numbers, failed subsidy ideas, disconnect from Beijing and, obviously, the coronavirus.

Many of the new numbers out of China, including a dismal January sales number and expectations for an awful February, are being blamed on the coronavirus (despite the fact that January's number doesn't really even include the virus impact yet).

Now, the numbers out of Europe - where they can't just turn around and place the blame on the coronavirus, are looking equally as awful and are sounding a much bigger alarm about the global automotive industry.

My Struggle

I launched my study into Jewishness two decades ago. It began as a result of my reaction to the relentless attacks on dissident Jewish thinkers who didn’t fit with the ‘revolutionary agenda’ of the so-called Jewish ‘anti Zionist’ Left. I quickly grasped that it was actually the Jewish Left, the radicals and progressives, who displayed the most problematic traits associated with Zionism and Jewish identitarianism.

I was perplexed: the same people who adhere to tribal politics and operate in racially segregated political cells preach universalism to others. I came to understand that nothing was transparent or obvious about Jewish culture and identitarianism, and that this was by design. I decided to untangle the Jewish enigma from a new perspective: instead of asking who or what Jews are, I asked what those who self-identify as Jews believe in, what precepts they adhere to. This question was the beginning of my struggle.

Terrifying Charts Show China's Economy Remains Completely Paralyzed

In our ongoing attempts to glean some objective insight into what is actually happening "on the ground" in the notoriously opaque China, whose economy has been hammered by the Coronavirus epidemic, last week we showed several "alternative" economic indicators such as real-time measurements of air pollution (a proxy for industrial output), daily coal consumption (a proxy for electricity usage and manufacturing) and traffic congestion levels (a proxy for commerce and mobility), before concluding that China's economy appears to have ground to a halt. These observations were subsequently reaffirmed when we showed that steel demand, property sales, and passenger traffic had all failed to rebound from the "dead zone" hit during China's Lunar New Year hibernation.

Mexican National Charged As 'Russian Agent' After Spying On FBI Informant In Florida

The Justice Department has announced the capture of an alleged Russian agent in Florida, after the man was seen photographing a US government informant's car in Miami.

The alleged Russian spy is a Mexican citizen named Hector Alejandro Cabrera Fuentes, and was charged Tuesday with being an “unregistered foreign agent” for Russia after he was stopped attempting to fly out of Miami International Airport.

Though specific details from court documents remain murky, it appears Cabrera was caught in the middle of a counterintelligence op which targeted the FBI's own program to root out Russian spying on American soil.

China To Change Definition Of Coronavirus "Infection" Again In Pursuit Of Fewer Cases

The move, which stunned markets sending futures sharply lower as the carefully crafted narrative that China was regaining control over the coronavirus epidemic, was the result of Beijing's intention to appear "transparent" with the public and to concede that the situation was worse (but not far too worse) than officially represented, especially amid the flood of media reports showing infected (and not infected) Chinese citizens getting carted away against their will to places unknown, even as hundreds of random people would fall dead, their final moments caught on camera. As a result, the province of Hubei, epicenter for the Coronavirus infection, changed the definition of infection and loosened its diagnosis criteria by starting to classify as “confirmed” cases that were clinically diagnosed by physicians, instead of purely validated by a genetic test.
