Round-up of January 2017 long-reads worth the effort


 


 Tom Suarez, The Unz Review, Jan01|17  

Terrorism: How the Israeli State Was Won

The modern-day terrorism model originated in the 1930's with the Jews' vicious attempts to run the Palestinians out of Palestine -- a terrorist enterprise that has not abated one whit since then. Suarez walks us back through a lot of that bloody history. This article is from Suarez's Dec14|16 speech to the British House of Lords in anticipation of the coming centennial of the Balfour Declaration, but Suarez pulls no punches with respect to Britain's role in the Palestine disaster.

Suarez's main theme is that the iJews have always covertly fostered antisemitism because it is the source of their self-promoted victimization. He builds this main point on the way the proto-terrorist Chaim Weizmann called anyone who opposed his plans for Eretz Yisrael an "antisemite." It's like the Shoah: the iJews need it, too, and always have. Hitler literally put the Jews on the map by means of his grotesque victimization of them. But in the decades since the iJews have learned that being a victim has its advantages. If you can use your victimization to whip up a lot of sympathy, and if you can convince suckers who had nothing to do with your problems to feel guilty for them, it might be good for $3.1 billion in US tax payers' money every year.   

Here are Suarez's own words on this point:

But let’s just blurt out the obvious: Virtually all of the alleged anti-Semitism we hear about from the Zionists is a lie, smears calculated to silence anyone who seeks to end the horror.

Anyone who would be interested in this article is likely already aware of the larger history of the iJews bloody, territorial war against the Palestinians through the 1930s and 1940s. Suarez gives us even more of the details. I haven't read his new book State of Terror, How Terrorism Created Modern Israel, but I will. I suspect when added to Alison Weir's Against Our Better Judgement (article here) one will have a near-complete picture of how the current cluster fuck in Palestine came to be. 

Speaking of Weir, she has a new blog .


Andrew Joyce, PhD, The Occidental Observer, Jan07|17

Exodus Redux: Jewish Identity 
and the Shaping of History

We are all victims of the iJews' mythology about fleeing Egypt and then being expelled from a land that was given to them by their god, the so-called Yahweh. This mythology is embodied in Zionism and in the iJews' concept of Eretz Yisrael that drives their bold exceptionalism, territorial expansionism, apartheid policies, and acts of terrorism against the Palestinians.  When identity-mythology becomes politicized and weaponized, it is a problem for everyone because there is no negotiating with it.  It is, by definition, irrational. And that is just as true for Zionism as it is for the Wahhabisim that drives the Daesh head-choppers.  

But in the case of iJews, their mythology is forced down the throats of politicians the world over, thereby forcing millions of unwitting suckers, aka "voters"  in democratic countries, to support Yisrael with their tax money and war dead. And when identity-mythology ultimately controls nuclear arms, as in Yisrael, the entire world becomes a victim of that mythology.

In this article Andrew Joyce argues, based on ancient historical documents, that the Yisrael myth of fleeing from Egypt is bullshit, which would tend to weaken, if not totally compromise, the entire iJew historical account of how they came to be chosen as well as their claim to Palestine.

It is a fascinating piece of ancient history.  At issue here are the writings of a spooky ancient Egyptian priest named Manetho, for Manetho's writings dating back to 300 BC pretty much turn the victimized Jews enslaved by pharaohs into a tribe of leprous, nomadic trouble-makers. The problem is that Manetho's book Aegyptiaca, has been lost, and so its contents have been deduced from the works of later writers who discussed Aegyptiaca 300 years after Manetho lived. What these deductions tell us, according to Joyce is: 

Manetho reported that centuries earlier a foreign population had entered Egypt’s eastern border via “infiltration of the Delta.” This foreign population subsequently rose in power within Egypt, becoming a burden and a pestilence to the natives. At some point, the foreign population developed a serious disease of the skin, and the Egyptians were finally motivated to expel the invaders, who later relocated to Jerusalem.

Many centuries before Uncle Abe Foxman was ever born, Manetho was being slammed by the "Jewish press" as being the original politically incorrect antisemite. For instance, the Jewish historian Flavius Josephus had a go at him in the 1st century AD. So it goes, Kurt.  

Joyce moves adroitly through the conjecture that Exodus is the result of ancient Jews rewriting Mantheo's  Aegyptiaca in order to make themselves out to be 1) geniuses, 2) victims, and 3) chosen, with Moses as their demigod. As for the historical Moses, Joyce points out that . . .  

Historian Gohei Hata has argued that by the time of Josephus at least seven major Greek or Greek-Egyptian writers and intellectuals had published accounts asserting that Jews had some distant connection to Egypt, that they had been banished, that they had suffered from an affliction of the skin, and that Moses himself was an unstable Egyptian apostate . . . Even if Moses never existed other than as a kind of Golem squatting in the psychological recesses of the intellectuals who conceived him, he still retains a kind of “reality.”

The subject matter of Joyce's article is pretty much verboten in a MSM controlled by Judeophiles, but I found his academic treatment of the subject reassuring, and by that I mean it is reassuring that academics are pursuing the study of Jewish history and publishing articles that could get them tarred as "antisemetic."  The Jewish identity-mythology is, as I noted above, highly relevant to all of us.

The one thing I would suggest is that before reading Joyce's account of Manetho you check out the long Wiki bio on him. It's not completely consistent with what Joyce has to say. Manetho is, after all, a mystery dude, which is what makes it all s'durn interestin'.


Glenn Greenwald, The Intercept, Jan11|17   

The Deep State Goes to War with President-Elect,
Using Unverified Claims, as Democrats Cheer

Glenn Greenwald is no buddy of President DTDuck or President DumboDon, who are the same person, to America's great misfortune. It is a certainty that during the rolling cluster-fuck that is the Trump presidency has already become, GG will be among the first and the loudest to take on this pack of ill-informed, self-serving cretins: the politicians, the advisors, the bureaucrats.

But it is equally clear that GG is going to be taking on that other pack of ill-informed, self-serving cretins: the media, regardless of whether they are supporting or opposing the DTDuck juggernaut. 

And the reason I mention it is that in this piece GG shows us his real colors, and those colors are journalistic integrity and objectivity. This guy is not going to be dupped into playing shill for one dishonest side or the other regardless how despicable the two sides are relative to one another.  In this piece, GG goes after the left, the alt-left, and the MSM who have been trying to take down DTDuck and the American electoral system.  Specifically, GG targets the CNN/BuzzFeed "Russian dossier" cock-up that was likely a product of putrid CIA malcontents who supported Hilton's failed presidential efforts. But GG goes a lot broader than taking out the CIA. Here is a snip: 

But cheering for the CIA and its shadowy allies to unilaterally subvert the U.S. election and impose its own policy dictates on the elected president is both warped and self-destructive. Empowering the very entities that have produced the most shameful atrocities and systemic deceit over the last six decades is desperation of the worst kind. Demanding that evidence-free, anonymous assertions be instantly venerated as Truth — despite emanating from the very precincts designed to propagandize and lie — is an assault on journalism, democracy, and basic human rationality. And casually branding domestic adversaries who refuse to go along as traitors and disloyal foreign operatives is morally bankrupt and certain to backfire on those doing it.

Beyond all that, there is no bigger favor that Trump opponents can do for him than attacking him with such lowly, shabby, obvious shams, recruiting large media outlets to lead the way. When it comes time to expose actual Trump corruption and criminality, who is going to believe the people and institutions who have demonstrated they are willing to endorse any assertions no matter how factually baseless, who deploy any journalistic tactic no matter how unreliable and removed from basic means of ensuring accuracy?

The BuzzFeed debacle is pretty much non-news for the moment, at least in the West. Christopher Steele has been outed as the ex-MI6 cretin who wrote the "dossier" and he seems to have disappeared after asking his neighbors to look after his cat. I mean, what kind of an MI6 agent could he have been if he can't even disappear with his cat? While Steele and his cat are now off the front pages of the NYT and Guardian , in Russia a clean-up operation is underway and FSB heads are rolling. Sergei Mikhailov, Dmitry Dokuchaev, Kaspersky Labs guy Ruslan Stoyanov -- all charged with "high treason" in the last few days. Source.

GG's article was written before DTDuck's presser immediately following the CNN/BuzzFeed debacle, but it back-ups everything DumboDon said about this shit storm, including why NYT's exec editor Dean Baquet deserves a lot of credit for not printing this crap.  From the comments to GG's article, which I also recommend, here is a link to a NYT editorial titled The Case Against Iraq that was published the day after Powell showed the world a vial of talcum powder and stupid drawings of "bioweapon factories" to "prove" Saddam had WMD.  The suggestion is that just maybe the NYT learned something about ethics and objectivity in journalism as a result of their catastrophic promotion of the Iraq War. 

The "Russian dossier" story at this point is, in my opinion, the one GG makes about the despicable efforts the Clintonite Democrats have gone to to demonize the man who is now President and to delegitimize the system that was used to elect him, and that story includes the sideline about GG's personal journalistic ethics and objectivity.  


Hugh McInnish, The Unz Review, Jan12|17   

America Should Be Ashamed

After release of Fox's unlikely drama about three black women who saved the US space mission to the moon, now comes a grumpy old white guy, Hugh McInnish, who was there and who is calling bullshit on the storyline.  Didn't happen, says McInnish. It was actually a white redneck who computed the flight trajectory.

But that's just the lede of his article.  What McInnish really came here to grump about is the way America treated a Nazi, and that's what makes this article worth looking at. It raises the question, at least in my mind, of: Why should anyone freaking care about how America treated any Nazi?

McInnish sort of offers an answer.  He relates how in the closing years of WWII, as the Russians were closing in on Berlin, Americans were able to snatch up a bunch of Nazi rocket scientists, notably Wernher von Braun and his gang who had developed the V2, which took out about 9,000 civilians during the war. But never mind that awkward fact, which McInnish ignores, these Nazis were quickly given US citizenship and  integrated into the US rocket program. They lived quiet, useful lives as American citizens putting together America's space mission.  And then the USG lowered the boom on them, packed them up, and sent them back to Germany.

One of these displaced Amer-Nazis, Arthur Rudolph, helped develop the famous Saturn V booster, which was used on the Apollo missions. But once the Apollo gig was over, the USG accused Rudolph of war crimes, which sounds right to me, and bounced him out of the country.  I mean if designing the rockets that turned London into an ungodly nightmare is not reason enough to be sent back to Germany, then . . . but I digress.

What's got up McInnish's nose is that in 2014 Obama signed legislation denying Social Security benefits to these Nazis accused of entering the US by lying on the immigration documents or during the interview.  Yes, some of these Nazis who were kicked out of the US were still drawing Social Security in 2014 and as you may recall the media picked up on that peculiar arrangement. So Congress stopped it.  

As fascinating as his story is, I fail to see McInnish's problem. OK, these were scientists, I get that much.  I understand they were valuable for what they knew and how they could help America, their prior enemy.  But they had been a part of the Nazi enterprise to develop nukes and the long-range ballistic missiles to deliver them, which is what the V2 was. The fact that they failed in their goals to nuke the world doesn't mean they were innocent. Specifically, they were as much a part of the war against Britain as any of Hitler's top officers and being smart rocket guys can't change that fact. 

Social Security benefits??  I don't understand why they weren't cut up into little pieces and fed to the sharks.

Jeremy Corbyn Accused of Being Russian "Collaborator" for Questioning NATO Troop Build-up on Border

Glenn Greenwald focuses this piece on the way UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn is getting beat up on by UK anserine war-hawks [pun intended] like Mike Penning, but it is GG's larger dialog that will make you want to hug your kids.

As GG points out, in the last couple of weeks we have learned that the UK is sending more troops into Estonia -- not just into the country, but to the border with Russia.  The US is  sending thousands of troops to seven countries (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria) adjoining Russia. It's all a part of the mad NATO saber-rattling that goes by the name Operation Atlantic Resolve. In addition, a boat-load of Marines just landed in Norway, contrary to Norway's treaties with Russia not to station foreign troops. All of this insane posturing is Obama's response to the way Putin out-smarted Obama and the CIA by exchanging a political advantage in Kiev for the whole of the Crimean Peninsula. 

"Atlantic Resolve." When these idiots start putting "resolve" in the titles of their operations, success is hardly guaranteed, but the deaths of thousands of innocent people are, and I'm talking Operation Inherent Resolve, Obama's gormless war in Iraq/Syria that appears to have been a covert way of supporting the head-choppers and has resulted in untold horror and misery for the Syrian people.

The really scary tid-bit embedded in GG's rant is his link to an article by Lawrence M. Krauss in The New Yorker, Oct13|16: The Real Nuclear Threat which is itself a rant about DTDuck having control of the nuclear button.  As Krauss points out: 

When it comes to starting a nuclear war, the President has more freedom than he or she does in, say, ordering the use of torture. In fact, the President has unilateral power to direct the use of nuclear weapons under any circumstances.

And by "president" we now know what is meant is "DTDuck." Yes, DTDuck has "more freedom" to ignite a nuclear holocaust than he has to, say, personally ban who enters and leaves the country. Nixon was able to play the Yisraeli general Moshe Dyan's game of getting your way in the world by making the world think you are a madman in charge of nukes. DTDuck, by all indications, isn't playing a game. He's sure convinced me. 

Read GG's piece.  Read Krauss' piece. Go hug your kids. Pray they will grow up in a world that survived DTDuck's presidency.


Matthew M. Burke, Newsweek, Jan24|17  

The Truth About the Lost Marines 
of the Vietnam War's Last Battle

I  recall reading about this Koh Tang Island military misadventure long ago, maybe in The New Yorker. Perhaps it was an erlier story by Burke. He has told and re-told the story over th years, for instance in Stars & Stripes in 2013 and 2015. And the story has been told by others, too. It's one of the many war stories for which time is running out if the truth is going to be known. 

The three lost Marines were part of a machine-gun team who were, presumably, captured and executed by Khmer Rouge after being left behind while giving cover to Air Force evacuation helicopters after a botched Marine raid on the island. All in all 38 Americans lost their lives in the raid, which was personally directed by then president Gerald Ford. 

Pfc. Gary Hall, was 18 yo. when he was presumably executed. According to the Vietnam War Memorial Book of Names, Hall was from Covington, KY.  Pvt. Danny Marshall, from Waverly, WV, was also 18.  LCpl Joseph Hargrove was the leader of the machine-gun team and was the "old man" of the trio. He died on his 24th birthday, according to the Book of Names. He was from Mt. Olive, NC. 

But the thing is, the Book of Names gives their day of death as the date of the raid, May15|1975, but nobody knows when they died, because nobody knows what happened to them, and that is obviously what is driving Burke to keep writing about the story. A memorial on Koh Tang Island listing all of the fallen gives the day of death for these three as "Unknown." One Cambodian who was there says the Marines were discovered because they were stealing food from the Khmer Rouge, which suggests they were on the island for days after May15 before being found and, presumably, killed. Oddly, they are not listed as missing in action in the Book of Names. Why not?  There appears to be no real confirmation that they were killed.

To be historically accurate, the Koh Tang operation is badly misnamed. It was not "the last battle of the Vietnam War." For one thing it had nothing to do with the VN War.  Gerald Ford had declared the war over three weeks previously, and Saigon fell two weeks previously.  The incident was precipitated by a bunch of Cambodians hijacking an American-flagged container ship. IOW, these Marines were not fighting Vietnamese; they were fighting Khmer Rouge -- Cambodians.  Nor was it a "battle."  Bull Run was a battle. The Bulge was a battle.  Hue City was a battle. This was a botched fire-fight that lasted half-a-day. 

I suspect that the DoD listed the attack on Koh Tang as part of the Vietnam War in order to be able to award war-time combat medals and VA benefits to wounded and to the families of the dead, and fair enough. The 38 KIAs are listed on the final panel of the Vietnam Memorial, Panel 1W. Whether or not dying in the VN War is an honor depends on one's view of the VN War, I guess, but the honor of being the last listed on the inspiring VN Memorial must surely be some solace to the families of these 38 guys. So it goes, Kurt.

What is new in this piece for Newsweek is that someone tracked down an ex-Air Force Staff Sergeant named Robert Velie who claims to be the last person in radio contact with the three doomed Marines.  Velie was in an airborne command center above the island when he got a muffled radio call from the three asking when they were going to be evacuated. As an ex-Marine recon radio operator who was extracted from a number of tight situations in VN myself, there are some things here that don't make sense to me. 

Velie's recollection of talking to these guys on a radio is odd because a 3-man machine gun team would not be carrying a radio, certainly not one that they could contact a flying command station with. The main combat radio we carried, the PRC-25, was an FM radio with range on the short antenna limited to a few miles. If we needed to communicate with aircraft, which operated on AM, we had to be relayed through the communications operation back at the base.  And even if these guys found a PRC-25 somehow left on the beach, and if the air command plane had FM comm on it, Velie's story would still be strained because the radio call was supposed to have been made so late in a day of heavy-duty combat that it's battery would have been all but knackered.

But, as always, a good story on a historical mystery presents more questions than it answers.

"Taking Down" British Officials

Wso much of the month dominated by the Russian-dossier spy story it was almost a relief to come upon a different sort of spy story by my favorite ex-spy Philip Giraldi. "Taking Down" British Officials is sub-titled Israel conspires against the Mother of Parliaments.  And I guess so. In this carefully choreographed article you will learn: 

  • The details of the Shai Masot Israel spy in London and the list of UK Parliamentarians the Government of Yisrael (GoY) is trying to "take down." 

  • How the iJews disseminate the pro-GoY message around the world by taking out politicians who criticize GoY, like US politicians Cynthia McKinney, Adlai Stevenson III, Paul Findley, Chuck Percy, William Fulbright, Roger Jepsen, and Pete McCloskey.

  • How GoY has an international operation to shut down internet discussions of the iJews' terrorism/apartheid campaign.

  • What a sayanim is and why you should avoid them as you travel through the blogosphere.

  • How UK PM Theresa May is turning out to be an iFirster non pareil, suggesting she's got a bunch of shekels pouring into her campaign machine.

  • How, in whatever country you're in, when you see an organization named something like "Friends of Israel" or "Friends of IDF", you know it's a GoY spy organization set up by Mossad to destroy those who disagree with GoY policies.

Here's Giraldi's bottom line:

In all cases, the objective is the same: to repress completely, discourage or misrepresent any criticism of Israel and to block any initiatives that might be taken that would do damage either to the Israeli economy or to the country’s perceived standing in the world. In some countries including the U.S. and Britain, Israel’s advocates work their subversion of local institutions right out in the open and are highly successful in implementing policies that often remain largely hidden but that can be discerned as long as one knows what to look for.

BTW, Comment #2 to this article by Wally provides a very informative list of links to more detailed discussion of the outrageous international activities of the iJews.

This is not just a good read.  It's information you need to download and archive so when things in the US and UK deteriorate even more, you can look back and see how Giraldi told you so.
