How Many Intersectional Diversity Pokemon Points Is Gay, Black & Jewish Jussie Smollett Entitled to?

The theory of Intersectionality — roughly, that the more categories of Victim you can check, the more Victim Privilege you enjoy — has been immensely influential since about 2013.

It’s popular with, say, black female homosexuals who want an intellectual-sounding justification for why they are Marginaler Than Thou to use on, say, straight black men or lesbian white women. Black women homosexuals clearly win in a matchup with white lesbians or black men through simple dominance logic. Black female lesbians check all the boxes that their traditional allies can check plus at least one more, proving their precedence.

That, by the way, is one reason why transgenders have swept to so many triumphs in recent years. Bruce Jenner, a rich Republican retired jock and devout golfer who has fathered six kids, enjoyed about as many intersectional Pokemon Points as Peyton Manning. But Caitlyn Jenner checks off all sorts of boxes: woman, transgender, even lesbian.

The Ramp Up to War on Iran is Here

John Bolton never met a war he didn’t like, except Vietnam. That would be the one he refused to fight in.

Today he is calling up every marker he has to create the narrative for a legal justification for an attack on Iran that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spilled the beans on just before the Warsaw Stink Fest last week.

Joan Ryan, MP who fabricated anti-Semitism, quits Labour

Lawmaker Joan Ryan quit Labour on Tuesday, citing party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s supposed “demonization and delegitimization” of Israel.

Ryan is the leading member of Parliament in Labour Friends of Israel – an Israeli embassy front group.

She notoriously fabricated a charge of anti-Semitism against Labour member Jean Fitzpatrick at the UK opposition party’s 2016 annual conference.

Labour Friends of Israel was defiant on Tuesday night, insisting that Ryan would “remain in her position as our parliamentary chair” despite her departure from the Labour Party.

Gulf leaders praise Israel ties in closed-door meeting

Gulf officials showcased their hostility towards Iran and their affection for Israel at the Warsaw conference hosted by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office leaked and then deleted a video of a closed-door meeting at the conference showing officials from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates spewing invective against Iran and defending Israel.

Bahrain’s foreign minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa downplayed Israel’s oppression of Palestinians.

“We grew up talking about the Palestine-Israel dispute as the most important issue,” he said in the video. “But then at a later stage, we saw a bigger challenge. We saw a more toxic one, in fact the most toxic in our modern history, which came from the Islamic Republic, from Iran.”

Meghan McCain calls Tulsi Gabbard an 'Assad apologist' in heated exchange on Syria

Since Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard declared she's running for president in 2020, she's been hammered in interviews over her controversial interactions with and statements on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Gabbard's Wednesday appearance on ABC's "The View" was no exception to the trend as the Hawaii Democrat got into a heated debate with host Meghan McCain.

As Gabbard discussed her foreign policy stance, McCain interrupted to address the lawmaker's stance on Assad.

"When I hear the name Tulsi Gabbard, I think of Assad apologist. I think of someone who comes back to the United States and is spouting propaganda from Syria," McCain said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"And if there's going to be propaganda spouted around here, it will be AMERICAN propaganda! Got it?"

What If They Started a War and No One Showed Up?

The humiliation of United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Warsaw last week was a good thing. The ancient Greeks, exercising their demonstrated ability to synthesize defining characteristics, had a word for it: hubris. Hubris is when one develops an extreme and unreasonable feeling of confidence in a certain course of action that inevitably leads to one’s downfall when that conceit proves to be based on false principles.

Opium, Oil, Proxy Wars: Ex-Reagan Adm. Official on US' Long Afghanistan Saga

US policy-makers are continuing to oppose Donald Trump's decision to pull troops out of Afghanistan. Speaking to Sputnik, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, economist, author and former US official, shared his views on the US' decades-long Afghanistan saga, surprising rise in opium crops under the American occupation and apparent use of Islamists by the US.

Donald Trump's decision to withdraw 1,000 or more US troops from Afghanistan has prompted concerns among American lawmakers and Washington's European allies. On 16 February the bipartisan group of US congressmen met with Afghan President Ashaf Ghani on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference to discuss the painful dilemma.

The US' Afghanistan war, which will mark its 18th anniversary this October, started in 2001 following the 9/11 terror attack under then-US President George W. Bush.

Europe to Sign Own 'Suicide Pact' If Hosts New US Missiles – German Politician

'Fake police' steal hundreds of thousands from Germany's elderly

Germany's Federal Police Office (BKA), working alongside Turkish authorities, has announced the arrests dozens of suspects believed to be calling elderly Germans and pretending to be police officers, local media reported on Thursday. The perpetrators are believed to have relieved pensioners of hundreds of thousands of euros by posing as officials.

"One of our tasks is to boost international cooperation with Turkey," the BKA told DW, "...the effectiveness of this cooperation was clearly seen in December, when Turkish police carried out a number of raids based on the preliminary investigation. In Antalya Province, for example, several residences and buildings were searched in connection with the fraud commited against victims living in Germany."

"The Turkish authorities also detained several of the top and mid-level management of the call centers."

Scholar: London Risks Shooting Itself in the Foot By Blindly Following US Govt

British Defense Secretary argued that the UK should prepare to intervene against countries that "flout international law" such as Russia and China, backed up by new military technologies and capabilities.

This is not the first time the country has tried to intervene in these waters. London recently conducted its first joint drills with Washington in the South China Sea region.

Last October, British Royal Navy forces vowed they would assert their rights to navigate in the South China Sea despite China's provocation claims, the Financial Times reported.

As the former world power on which "the sun never sets," the UK has had to relinquish the seat of global hegemony to the US since the 20th century, albeit unwillingly.

Anti-Zionism equals Anti-Semitism? Macron fuels debate on how to define anti-Jewish hate

Addressing a rise in hate crimes against the Jewish diaspora in France, President Emmanuel Macron has supported the expansion of the definition of anti-Semitism to outlaw anti-Zionism as well, fueling public debate over the terms.

“Anti-Semitism is hiding itself behind anti-Zionism,” Macron said Wednesday, speaking at the Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions (Crif) and announcing that France seeks to define “anti-Zionism as a modern-day form of anti-Semitism.”

The rise of hate crime incidents in France, including the verbal abuse of philosopher Alain Finkielkraut at a Yellow Vest rally last weekend and the desecration of a Jewish cemetery near Strasbourg, has prompted the French government to seek new means to fight growing animosity towards their Jewish population, the largest in Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note the effort to tangle the yellow vests up in this mess.

Q The God-Emperor

This kind of open-ended information bombing lets Qvians free-associate on the data and eventually come to a consensus, usually with the "Anons," known here as the Apostles and Acolytes, leading the way.

In other words, this is classic Dialectic Conformity in action. A group of people are presented a vague issue, planted leaders emerge from within the group, predetermined solutions are proposed, and ultimately the group settles on a conclusion they've surreptitiously been led to. All the while, the group fervently believes it has been acting independently and exercising free choice.

As I have shown before, Q also uses a psychological technique called "transference". Q uses emotional triggers to transfer religious, militaristic, political, and cultural fervor to itself, and thus to Trump's presidency and support.

North Korea's Kim replaces key diplomats ahead of Trump summit

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has shuffled some of his top advisers and diplomats ahead of next week's meeting with President Trump in Vietnam, Reuters reported Wednesday.

The news outlet reported that Kim has swapped out a number of veteran negotiators, including some who served his father and grandfather, with younger counsel.

One of the most notable changes is Kim's appointment of Kim Hyok Chol to lead working-level talks with U.S. nuclear envoy Stephen Biegun, Reuters reported. Kim Hyok Chol was expelled as ambassador to Spain in 2017 and has since worked at North Korea's State Affairs Commission, according to the report.

Kim Hyok Chol replaces Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui, who led talks ahead of Trump and Kim's first meeting last June.

Trump is set to travel to Hanoi, Vietnam, for a summit with Kim on Feb. 27 and 28.

And it did occur off the coast of Georgia and South Carolina when a B-47 bomber collided with an F-86 in midair. The F-86 pilot was able to eject safely, but the B-47 pilot had to assess his situation as he had a (possibly) fully functioning nuclear bomb on board.

According to CNN, the preparations - which are in line with an NBC report from late last year that the Mueller report would be completed by the end of February - "are the clearest indication yet that Mueller is nearly done with his almost two-year investigation." Barr has said that he wants to be as "transparent" as possible while being "consistent with the rules and the law."

Cuba, China, PAHO to Send 933 Tons of Medicines to Venezuela

The Minister, from the port of La Guaira, in Vargas state, specified that the cargo totals 64 containers, which periodically enter Venezuela with supplies, despite the economic war and the blockade of investments made abroad to the Bolivarian Executive.

Alvarado, stressed that in response to the request of the National Assembly, Parliament in contempt since 2016, to enter the nation ‘humanitarian aid’ for the alleged crisis that Venezuelans are going through in the sector, is paradoxical as the opposition can not recognize and address the sanctions that impede Venezuela’s free development.

Measles Madness: Dr. Brian Hooker’s Statement to WA Legislators

There is a problem with measles in Washington State, but it’s not low vaccination rates, it’s actually high vaccination rates with a vaccine product unable to provide lifetime immunity or vigorous passive maternal protection to infants during the first year of life.

When the measles vaccine was first introduced, most people over the age of 15 who had wild measles had lifetime immunity. In developed nations, like other communicable infections, measles was no longer dangerous except in rare circumstances because of inadequate nutrition, poor sanitation, and / or lack of healthcare. Because having the measles was a routine part of childhood, teens, adults, parents, and grandparents were immune. And because of maternal passive immunity, infants were protected.

The family secret Bruce Ohr told Rod Rosenstein about Russia case

Who would have thought that, this deep into the Russia collusion probe, we'd be learning about yet another dossier connected to Hillary Clinton? And, as it turns out, it was sort of a family secret.

By his own account, senior Department of Justice (DOJ) official Bruce Ohr played an essential — and unorthodox — role, carrying politically tainted allegations of Donald Trump-Russia collusion to the FBI during the 2016 election.

First, it was unverified intelligence starting in July 2016 from Trump-hating former British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous Russia dossier.

Next, it was sketchy intelligence starting in August 2016 from Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, an opposition-research contractor who hired Steele and was paid to help Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign develop political dirt on Trump.

Did you notice how, during the Andrew McCabe interview with "60 Minutes," the former FBI acting director kept talking about “articulable facts?”

Like ex-CIA boss John Brennan and disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, McCabe was coining his own phrase to explain why the intelligence community started spying the Trump team. But the justification for mounting a probe should not lie in weasel words. It belongs in something known in law enforcement circles as “Paragraph One.”

Paragraph One in federal investigations lays out precisely why the investigation began and how. You can’t skip over it with fanciful phrases or empty verbiage. Yet, in the case of the counter-intelligence probe that targeted Team Trump, it has been two years and we are still waiting for someone to articulate a clear reason why the program began.

The Israel lobby is built on the biggest guilt trip in the world

I’ve been reading Amos Oz’s books since his death, and one of the feelings he leaves me with is: Self-contempt. Many of Oz’s characters look on American Jews with disdain. “To be without power is, in my eyes, both a sin and a catastrophe. It’s the sin of exile, and Diaspora,” says one. Another says that Diaspora Jews “shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of… life.”

The message is clear. Jews in the west are half-made because they never had to fight. They haven’t served in the Israeli army, at the front line of reborn Jewish sovereignty. But those exiled Jews derive pride and strength from the armed Jewish nation; Israel has given them international prestige. Because once Jews went like sheep to slaughter, we formed lines to get on the cattle cars. Now we are a proud nation.

But those exiled Jews have no skin in the game. They are living comfortable idle existences. Getting up like me this morning and going to my desk.

Ilhan Omar and the anti-Semitic ‘trope/canard’ smear

The latest brouhaha over Ilhan Omar’s supposed flirtation with anti-Semitism was started by Batya Ungar-Sargon of the Forward, who ignited a twitter debate by challenging Omar’s assertion on February 10 that AIPAC used financial pressure on members of Congress on behalf of Israel. Ungar-Sargon then wrote a column accusing Omar of repeated use of anti-Semitic “tropes,” which has become something of a “mot du jour.” The exchange exploded quickly into a firestorm, leading to rebukes from Democratic Congressional leadership and calls from President Trump for Omar to resign from Congress or at least the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Ungar-Sargon, who views herself as politically “on the left,” has perversely become a leading practitioner of the familiar playbook smearing those who stray from the narrow boundaries of acceptable criticism of Israel as anti-Semites who are conjuring some historical anti-Semitic “trope” or “canard.”

Netanyahu is working hard for racist party of ‘David Dukes’ so as to hold a rightwing majority in Israeli parliament

“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been spending much of his time making sure a racist, xenophobic, Homophobic Ultra-Right wing fringe party which is the Israeli version of David Duke passes the electoral threshold [of four seats] & makes it into the Knesset in the April 9th elections.”

“The name of this party is ‘Jewish Power’ & its members are followers of Meir Kahana – former leader of ‘Kach’ party which was banned from running in the elections in 1988 and was designated as a terror organization in Israel, the U.S., Canada and the EU.”

“The leader of ‘Kach’ Meir Kahana managed to get elected in 1984 and was boycotted by all the other parties in the Knesset. He tried to pass a law for stripping non-Jews from their citizenship, a law for separate beaches for Jews and Arabs and other racist laws.”

After Israeli anchor calls out brutality of ‘occupation’, political leaders land hard on her

This is a big story in Israel. On Saturday, Channel 13 anchorwoman Oshrat Kotler commented on a case of sadistic Israeli soldier beatings of a Palestinian father and son in occupied territory, saying:

They send children to the army, to the territories, and get them back human animals. That’s the result of the occupation.

The response was immediate. Thousands of expressions of rage streamed in from audiences, and many leaders on the right were condemnatory. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted:

Proud of IDF soldiers and love them very much. Oshrat Kotler’s words should be roundly condemned.

ANC Youth League Affirms Support For BDS

The African National Congress Youth League has affirmed its support for the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Speaking to Middle East Monitor on Monday, the Secretary General of South Africa’s ruling party, Njabulo Nzuza, stressed that its National Executive Committee (NEC) even took a decision to work together with BDS South Africa (BDS SA).

Over the weekend, a Youth League member, Thembi Siweya, sparked controversy when she published an article titled “BDS SA, undermining South Africa” wherein she criticised the BDS movement. In particular, Siweya made clear that she is against any opposition to an Israeli company’s intended takeover of South Africa’s largest dairy producer, Clover.

“BDS SA ought to listen to what ordinary Palestinians yearn for,” claimed Siweya. “Its messaging on Palestine is not coherent and fails to benefit the Palestinians living in Palestine.” Nzuza was emphatic that Siweya’s views are “not the position of the Youth League.”
