L’arte della guerra

Italia-Israele: la «diplomazia dei caccia»

Manlio Dinucci

I governanti europei – dalla rappresentante esteri della Ue Mogherini, al premier Gentiloni, dal presidente Macron alla cancelliera Merkel – hanno preso formalmente le distanze dagli Usa e da Israele sullo status di Gerusalemme. Si sta creando una frattura tra gli alleati?

I fatti mostrano il contrario. Poco prima della decisione di Trump su Gerusalemme capitale di Israele, quando già essa era preannunciata, si è svolta la Blue Flag 2017, la più grande esercitazione internazionale di guerra aerea nella storia di Israele, alla quale hanno partecipato Stati uniti, Italia, Grecia e Polonia e, per la prima volta alla terza edizione, Francia, Germania e India.

Per due settimane piloti degli otto paesi, di cui sei membri della NATO, si sono esercitati con 70 aerei nella base israeliana di Ovda, nel deserto del Negev, assistiti da 1000 militari del personale tecnico e logistico. L’Italia ha partecipato con quattro caccia Tornado del 6° Stormo di Ghedi, due da attacco e due da guerra elettronica. Gli Stati uniti, con sette F-16 del 31st Fighter Wing di Aviano. Poiché tali aerei sono addetti al trasporto delle bombe nucleari Usa B-61, sicuramenre i piloti italiani e statunitensi si sono esercitati, insieme agli altri, anche a missioni di attacco nucleare.

A Arte da Guerra

Itália-Israel: A «Diplomacia dos Caças-Bombardeiros»

Manlio Dinucci


Os governantes europeus – desde a representante dos Negócios Estrangeiros da União Europeia, Mogherini, ao Primeiro Ministro, Gentiloni, desde o Presidente Macron à Chanceler Merkel – distanciaram-se, formalmente, dos Estados Unidos e de Israel sobre o estatuto de Jerusalém. Será que se está a criar uma fractura entre os aliados?

Os factos demonstram o contrário. Pouco antes da decisão de Trump sobre Jerusalém, a capital de Israel, quando a mesma já estava pré-anunciada, ocorreu o Blue Flag 2017, o maior exercício de guerra aérea internacional da História de Israel, em que participaram os Estados Unidos, a Itália, a Grécia e a Polónia e colaboraram, pela primeira vez, na terceira edição do mesmo exercício, a França, a Alemanha e a Índia.

Durante duas semanas, os pilotos de oito países, seis dos quais membros da NATO, treinaram com 70 aviões na base israelita de Ovda, no deserto do Negev, auxiliados por 1000 militares do pessoal técnico e logístico. A Itália participou com quatro caças-bombardeiros Tornado, do 6º Esquadrão de Ghedi, dois caças de ataque e dois de guerra electrónica. Os Estados Unidos, com sete F-16 da 31ª Fighter Wing, de Aviano. Como esses aviões estão adaptados para o transporte de bombas nucleares norte-americanas B-61, seguramente, os pilotos italianos e norte-americanos participariam, junto com outros, em missões de ataque nuclear.

In a Triumph for Feminism Police say a Mistletoe Kiss without Consent is Rape
Criminalizing a bit of Christmas fun has to make you wonder. Is there any aspect of our life left into which the police state does not intrude?
Parents are regulated as to how they discipline their children. Spankings that were the tool of choice in my day are now illegal. Spanking is considered child abuse and can result in state seizure of the child and prosecution of the parent.
The state prescribes the terms on which children can be transported in cars. The cars themselves can only be designed within safety and fuel economy parameters determined by the state.
The unsupervised children at play of my generation no longer exist outside of small towns. Not that long ago I reported on the arrest of a mother on the grounds that she permitted an underage kid to play unsupervised in the front yard of the home on a cul-de-sac. The arrest was made on the false report of a neighbor. The police seized the opportunity to arrest a mother on the basis of “failure to supervise an underage child.” The family was traumatized. The mother was put in jail, the child in Child Protective Custody, and the father rushed home from work to see if he could rescue his family from the intrusion of the American Police State. It has happened to many, and Americans sit there sucking their thumbs, hoping the lion will choose another antelope.
The parents, grandparents, and aunts and uncles of my day would all have been locked up. My entire generation would have been raised in orphanages.
When the state substitutes its judgment for that of parents, it takes the job away from them. Even within the same family children differ. Parents have to find the best approach for each child. Moreover, children who are always supervised never grow up. They learn neither responsibility nor street smarts. Children are even regulated how they can play. No pointing the finger and saying “bang, bang.” Even words are policed, some words no longer being permissable.
Perhaps someone has studied the impact on culture of such intense state intrusion into private life. And there are other culture-changing factors. Consider Identity Politics. The other day I listened to a recording of Barbara Streisand singing “A Woman In Love” from 1980, and Celine Dion’s “The Power of Love” from years ago. Both of these performers are gifted with beautiful and powerful voices. I wondered if they have a counterpart today.
I haven’t time to listen to much music, so I do not know. But the thought occurred to me that these are songs about love between a woman and a man. Moreover, in the official videos, the man is white. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhoie_4UQk0
Identity Politics is gradually delegitimizing heterosexual relationships, especially if the male is white, as Identiy Politics defines the white heterosexual male as the oppressor of all other races and genders.
Having heard that in “advanced circles” women are subjected to peer pressure not to have relationships with “white, sexist, racist males,” I was wondering if today Streisand would have to have a black lover in her video and whether Dion would have to pitch her song to a lesbian lover.
Otherwise, would they be the hits they were during their time? Indeed, could Dion survive using the politically incorrect word, “lady”? https://www.vevo.com/watch/celine-dion/the-power-of-love-(official-video)/CAC239500002
People are born into what exists. They have no experience of what previously existed. Therefore, they do not know what has been lost. This generational effect is the best ally of the police state.
People born into a country, in which unaccountable police can brutalize and murder and steal, born into a country, the government of which declares itself above both domestic and international law and the US Constitution, a country that ignores constitutional protections such as habeas corpus and due process of law, a country that based on a false claim that the country is indispensable and exceptional claims the right to destroy entire countries whose governments refuse to follow Washington’s orders, a country that claims the right to control explanations and that brands those who tell the truth to be conspiracy theorists, Russian agents, anti-semites, and enemies of the people, know no different. What to my generation is totalitarian horror is normal to them.
That country is the United States of America. It is the most shameful country on earth. The United States is a counry whose rulers regard their hegemony as more important than the wellbeing of people and the life of the planet.
If the world is to survive America and if America is to survive as a country in which citizens are permitted free thought, free speech, to make their own decisions, to raise their own children and otherwise to be a free people, Americans will have to get angry at those who are destroying them and reply to the everyday violence that they experience in many different forms with violence of their own.
There are two forces in history. One is ideas. The other is violence. Karl Marx said that ideas, although sometimes effective, such as his own, can become the control mechanism of the ruling class. In contrast, Marx said that violence is the effective force in history.
In Marx’s analysis violence serves the working class, but this is no more than Marx’s assumption. Violence serves those who use it most forcefully.
Today Washington’s violence has brought America up against Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. Washington has outmatched itself.
US President Trump, by seeking protection from Israel against his own government, has re-ignited Arab hostility to Israel and to the US.
Today Israel is alone, defended only by Washington whose own stupidity has created powerful enemies.
Washington has proved itself incapable of leadership. Russia, China, and Iran have proven that they are capable of leadership, and they are also making it clearer by the day that they are fed up with Washington.
It is past time for Americans to get fed up with Washington, its lies and its abuse of power.

L’art de la guerre


Grands travaux du Pentagone à nos frais







Grands travaux sur notre territoire, du nord au sud. Ce ne sont pas ceux du Ministère des infrastructures et des transports, dont tout le monde parle, mais ceux du Pentagone dont personne ne parle. Et pourtant ils sont en grande partie payés avec nos sous et comportent, pour nous Italiens, des risques croissants.

  À l’aéroport militaire de Ghedi (Brescia) démarre le projet de plus de 60 millions d’euros, à la charge de l’Italie, pour la construction d’infrastructures pour 30 chasseurs USA F-35, achetés par l’Italie, et pour 60 bombes nucléaires USA B61-12.

  À la base d’Aviano (Pordenone), où sont en garnison environ 5000 militaires étasuniens avec des chasseurs F-16 armés de bombes nucléaires (sept d’entre eux sont actuellement en Israël pour l’exercice Blue Flag 2017), ont été effectués d’autres coûteux travaux à la charge de l’Italie et de l’Otan.

  À Vicence sont dépensés 8 millions d’euros, à la charge de l’Italie, pour la “requalification” des casernes Ederle et Del Din, qui abritent le quartier général de l’Armée USA en Italie et la 173ème Brigade aéroportée (engagée en Europe orientale, Afghanistan et Afrique), et pour agrandir le “Village de la Paix” où résident des militaires étasuniens avec leurs familles. 

   À la base étasunienne de Camp Darby (Pise/Livourne) commence en décembre la construction d’une infrastructure ferroviaire, d’un coût de 45 millions de dollars à la charge des USA plus d’autres dépenses à la charge de l’Italie, pour développer la liaison de la base avec le port de Livourne et l’aéroport de Pise : oeuvre qui implique l’abattement de 1000 arbres dans le parc naturel. Camp Darby est un des cinq sites que l’Armée USA a dans le monde pour le “stockage pré-positionné” d’armements (contenant des millions de missiles et projectiles, des milliers de chars d’assaut et de véhicules blindés) : de là ils sont envoyés aux forces USA en Europe, Moyen-Orient et Afrique, par de grands navires militarisés et des avions cargos. 

  À Lago Patria (Naples) le nouveau quartier général de l’Otan, qui a coûté environ 200 millions d’euros dont environ un quart à la charge de l’Italie, comporte des coûts ultérieurs pour l’Italie, comme celui de 10 millions d’euros pour la nouvelle viabilité autour du quartier général Otan. 

   À la base d’Amendola (Foggia) ont été effectués des travaux, d’un coût non quantifié, pour rendre les pistes aptes aux F-35 et aux drones Predator étasuniens, achetés par l’Italie.

   À la Naval Air Station Sigonella, en Sicile, ont été effectués des travaux pour plus de 100 millions de dollars à la charge des Etats-Unis et de l’Otan, donc de l’Italie aussi. En plus de fournir un appui logistique à la Sixième Flotte, la base sert à des opérations au Moyen-Orient, Afrique et Europe orientale, avec des avions et drones de tous types et des forces spéciales. 

A ces missions s’ajoute maintenant celle de base avancée du “bouclier anti-missiles” USA, dans une fonction non pas défensive mais offensive surtout à l’égard de la Russie : s’ils étaient en mesure d’intercepter les missiles, les USA pourraient lancer la première frappe nucléaire en neutralisant les représailles. À Sigonella est sur le point d’être installée la Jtags, station de réception et transmission satellitaire du “bouclier” et ce n’est évidemment pas par hasard : avec le lancement du cinquième satellite, est en train de devenir pleinement opérationnel le Muos, système satellitaire étasunien dont une des quatre stations terrestres se trouve non loin de là, à Niscemi.

   Le général James Dickinson, chef du Commandement stratégique USA, dans une audition au Congrès le 7 juin 2017 a déclaré : “Cette année nous avons obtenu l’appui du gouvernement italien pour redéployer, en Europe, la Jtags à la Naval Air Station Sigonella”. 

   Le Parlement italien était-il au courant d’une décision d’une telle portée stratégique, qui met notre pays en première ligne dans la toujours plus dangereuse confrontation nucléaire? En a-t-on au moins parlé dans les commissions Défense?

Syria – ISIS Is Defeated – The U.S. Is Next In Line


Syria – ISIS Is Defeated – The U.S. Is Next In Line
Support Your Website


Is the US really a superpower or just the biggest collection of stupidity on the planet?

Syria – ISIS Is Defeated – The U.S. Is Next In Line
Washington has already lost the Syrian war once. Now it is about to lose it a second time.
A few days ago the president of Russia, Vladimir Putin, declared a “complete victory” in Syria:
“Two hours ago, the (Russian) defense minister reported to me that the operations on the eastern and western banks of the Euphrates have been completed with the total rout of the terrorists.”
The Iranian commander of the forces which support the Syrian and Iraqi governments sent a note to the U.S. to let Washington know that any remaining U.S. forces in Syria will be fought down:
“The commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp Brigadier General Haj Qassem Soleimani sent a verbal letter, via Russia, to the head of the US forces commander in Syria, advising him to pull out all US forces to the last soldier ‘or the doors of hell will open up.'”
“My message to the US military command: when the battle against ISIS (the Islamic State group) will end, no American soldier will be tolerated in Syria. I advise you to leave by your own will or you will be forced to it.” http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/48387.htm
According to reports, Russia has confirmed that Iran will stay in Syria as long as Syrian President Assad, who insists on liberating all of Syria without exception for the Americans, decides. Washington’s plan to occupy a corner of Syria and revive ISIS is dead in the water, as will be all US troops sacrificed to this purpose.
According to reports, CIA director Mike Pompeo sent a letter to Soleimani expressing his concern about Iran’s intention to attack American interests, declaring Washington “will hold Soleimani and Iran accountable for any attack.”
According to reports the CIA’s letter had no effect and was treated with total contempt:
“Mohammad Mohammadi Golpayegani, a senior aid to the Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei confirmed Pompeo’s attempt to send a letter but said  ‘Soleimani refused to read it or to take it because he has nothing further to add.’ Sources in the area believe it is not unlikely that Kurdish troups – operating in al-Hasaka and who are faithful to the government of Damascus – are willing to be spearheaded against the US forces. Many of these troups remained loyal to Syria: they reject any occupation forces on its land or the partition of the country.”
There are references to 1983 events where hundreds of US Marines and French paratroopers were killed following double suicide attacks by Islamists in Beirut. As a consequence of these attacks, the American forces left in a rush. The future could well mirror this past event. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/48388.htm
Possibly this is fake news. If not, we must accept that the humiliation that the United States, its government and its peoples have suffered is the work of the Neoconservatives and their doctrine of American World Hegemony. It is the Neoconservatives who caused the US to be at war with Muslims for 16 years. It is the Neoconservaives acting through Obama and Hillary who brought America to humiliating defeat in Syria.
There are only a handful of these neoconservatives. Why do Americans tolerate them?
Why doesn’t Trump have them arrested? They are anti-American, pro-Israel to the core. The Neoconservatives are the worst enemy of Americans and of all mankind.
It looks like the Russians have had enough of Washington’s arrogance.https://www.rt.com/news/412590-russia-us-syria-air-force/ 

Russian general Konashenkov, whose Su-35 chased away the inferior US F-22 that was attempting to interfere with a Russian attack on ISIS said that any claims made by US military officials concerning the fact that there is “any part of the airspace in Syria that belongs to the US” are “puzzling.” Konashenkov also said that “Syria is a sovereign state and a UN member and that means that there can be no US airspace ‘of its own.’ Unlike the Russian Air Force, the US-led coalition is operating in Syria without any legal basis.”
Will Washington realize that it has squandered its leadership in the Middle East and go home, or will Washington bring more humiliation upon America?

CNN Exposed As Propaganda Ministry For the DNC and Military/Security Complex
Glenn Greenwald, one of the few real journalists that still exist in the West, none of whom work for CNN or any of the US or European media, has given us the story of the latest mass lie told to the world by CNN. https://theintercept.com/2017/12/09/the-u-s-media-yesterday-suffered-its-most-humiliating-debacle-in-ages-now-refuses-all-transparency-over-what-happened/
Allow me to be unequivocal. CNN is not a news service. It is a shit hole. There is no one at CNN who has any integrity or any intelligence. CNN is a collection of corrupt morons. If you added up the entire IQ of everyone at CNN and multiplied it by one million it would not equal an IQ of 10. CNN integrity is deep into the negative depths. These morons are paid to lie to the American people and to the world. That is all that they do. Anyone who sits and listens to CNN is stupid beyond repair and cannot possibly have any idea of what is happening in the world.
Read Greenwald’s account of this massive lie spread around the world by the utterly venal and corrupt American media. You will see that the United States does not have a media. It has a propaganda ministry that manufactures lies to serve the One Percent.

Join With Me and Let’s Change the World -- Paul Craig Roberts

Join With Me and Let’s Change the World

Harvard Researchers Conclude That Margaret Mead Was Right: It Only Takes A Few To Change The World

Paul Craig Roberts

According to the latest fake news from the US government and presstitute media, the US unemployment rate is the lowest in 17 years, but there is no growth in wages. What explains full, or overfull, employment without wage pressure? Obviously, the full employment figure is the orchestrated product of not counting the millions of discouraged workers who, unable to find a job, have ceased looking. If you are unemployed but not looking for a job, you are not counted as unemployed. As it is costly to look for a job, and after awhile looking becomes very depressing, the unemployed just disappear out of the government’s statistics. Will this fake news be something that google censors out of the Internet? Don’t bet your life that google hired 10,000 people to weed off the Internet the fake US employment reports. http://thehill.com/policy/technology/363242-10000-google-staff-set-to-weed-out-extremist-content-on-youtube

Who asked google to transform itself from search engine to gatekeeper? Is there a conspiracy here against the First Amendment? What are google’s qualifications for determining what is fake news and extremist views? Is what are we witnessing here the elite’s use of a private company to control explanations in behalf of the One Percent?

How does a private company get to overrule the First Amendment of the US Constitution? Is this another example of the arrogance embodied in the trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific partnerships that set up corporate tribunals to dictate environmental and other policy to sovereign governments? The elites and globalists are still determined to resurrect these agreements that destroy the sovereignty of peoples.

Why do people use google, youtube, facebook, and twitter when the companies are in a conspiracy against freedom of the press? Is the answer that Americans had rather be entertained than to be free?

Young Americans have already set themselves up for tyranny by using only digital means of payment. Digital money means that government knows every purchase, a person’s holdings, and where their money is. Digital money gives government complete control. Government can freeze, confiscate, turn off your digital money at will, leaving the person totally helpless. Go protest and suddenly you can’t pay your rent, your car payment, your credit card bill. People in such a plight are incapable of resistance. They are far worst off than 19th century slaves, about which there is so much protest.

Are the false war criminal charges brought against former Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic an example of the fake news that google is going to suppress? Every Western presstitute, the corrupt Clinton regime, and Washington’s servile European puppet states demonized the innocent Milosevic as a war criminal and sent him off to The Hague to be tried by the War Crimes Tribunal. Milosevic died, or was murdered, in his cell while awaiting the verdict. The Tribunal pronounced him “not guilty,” and now eleven years after his death has again found him not guilty. https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2017/12/07/hague-tribunal-exonerates-slobodan-milosevic-again.html Are the despicable presstitutes and politicians responsible for ruining Milosevic’s life, and Serbia, examples of the extremist fake news that google is going to censor?

Are Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, Assad’s use of chemical weapons, and Russian invasion of Ukraine examples of the fake news that google is going to censor?

Don’t bet a nickel on it. Google, youtube, facebook and twitter are going to censor truth so that only the elite’s lies are heard.

Already those who tell the truth are slandered as “conspiracy theorists,” “Russian agents,” and “anti-semites,” and this is prior to google and social media going into action for the One Percent. Ironically, the only way anyone interested in truth will be able to find it is to use Russian and Chinese search engines. They exist already, and if those governments can see the opportunity, the Russian and Chinese search engines will displace google.

Let’s look at google’s censoring of the Internet from a different point of view. Let’s assume that I am being unfair to google and that google is sincere and has in mind some workable definition of “extremism.” What is extreme depends on one’s point of view. For example, what extremism means to a Palestinian is very different from what an Israeli Zionist regards as extremism. How will google monitor 10,000 people censoring the Internet for extremism? An employee affected by the Russiagate hoax will regard any fair statement toward Russia as extremism. A Zionist will regard any criticism of Israel as extremism. Identity Politics will regard any defense of white males or “Civil War” memorials as extremism. You can come up with your own examples. What google is doing is hiring 10,000 people whose personal agendas and biases will determine what “extremism” is.

The US Constitution protects free speech in order to protect truth. If a majority or a minority or “national security” or whatever can censor, in place of truth there will be self-serving agendas and explanations. Truth emerges from open discourse, not from censorship.

Charles Hugh Smith tells us that our rulers intend to control us “with officially generated and sanctioned fake news and ‘approved’ dissent.” In other words, even dissent will be concocted. http://www.blacklistednews.com/The_Demise_of_Dissent%3A_Why_the_Web_Is_Becoming_Homogenized/61698/0/38/38/Y/M.html

paulcraigroberts.org has large readership and dedicated supporters. Nevertheless, many readers think that an individual website can’t have much impact, so why contribute to it. They are wrong. Harvard University researchers in a recent study published in Science conclude that “even small independent news outlets can have a dramatic effect on the content of national conversation.” http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/48258.htm

Indeed, this website has a large international impact, in addition to its domestic weight, as many of the columns are reposted on other websites with heavy traffic and translated into other languages and reposted. I am often interviewed on national TV in other countries. There are even Chinese websites that post my columns: http://www.sinopolitico.com

Those of you who make up excuses for not supporting a website that keeps you free open up your pockets and send your donation. The liberal philanthropic foundations support the rule of the elites, and the conservative ones are now in the hands of the neoconservatives. There is no one to support the truth but the people. A tiny percentage of the annual outlay of one of the philanthropic foundations would keep this website alive for years, but it will not arrive.

Throughout the Western World, free thought and free speech are under police state assault. If you do not support those brave enough to speak truth to you, you will only have lies.

Here are a few examples of the influence of this website:










Croation postings: 

Serbian postings: 


Polish postings: 

Greek postings: 



Spanish posings: 

There are many other repostings in foreign translationDanish, Swedish, the Baltic languages, some former Soviet central Asian languages, Czech, Hungarian, Japanese.

My books are republished abroad in Russian, Chinese, Korean, Czech, Spanish, Turkish, German, French, and Spanish.

Fake news is not google’s real target. Truth-tellers are. A net of disinfomation is being thrown over the entire Western world. Nevertheless, as Margaret Mead said and as the Harvard University study confirms, it only takes a few to change the world.

So, join with me, and let’s change the world. If we don’t, there won’t be a world.

Avoiding Nuclear War Is Our First Priority --- Paul Craig Roberts


Avoiding Nuclear War Is Our First Priority


Avoiding Nuclear War Is Our First Priority
Paul Craig Roberts
Dear Readers, support your website
Michel Chossudovsky, a distinguished professor in Canada, directs the Centre for Research on Globalization and the website Global Research, a font of important information unavailable from the presstitute Western media. In this article he tells us that if we do not focus on peace instead of war, we are all going to die: https://www.globalresearch.ca/what-you-need-to-know-about-north-korea-and-the-dangers-of-nuclear-war/5615328
Professor Chossudovsky makes an important point, made to me some years ago by my colleague Zbigniew Brzezinski and recently by former Secretary of Defense William Perry (see:https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/12/05/walking-into-armageddon/ ). 
Professor Chossudovsky reminds us to “bear in mind that mistakes are often what determine the course of world history.” A US attack on North Korea would be a mistake that could precipate a nuclear war.
There is no doubt that Chossudovsky is correct.
Additionally, the continued demonization of Russia, China, and Iran could precipate a nuclear war. In other words, we are surrounded by very real threats created by Washington that receive no attention from Western governments and the presstitute media. As I wrote on December 5, we are “walking into Armageddon.” https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/12/05/walking-into-armageddon/
Professor Chossudovsky has amassed a huge amount of information that makes clear the vast difference between the level-headed era of JFK/Khrushchev and the insanity of the post-Reagan era of the re-start of hostilities for the sake of the power and profit of the US military/security complex and the neoconservatives’ ideology of US world hegemony.
I am unsure that the peoples of the Western world can without violence against their governments do anythng to prevent nuclear war, because the Western politicians are in the pay of the military/security complex and the financial and corporate interest groups that benefit from US hegemony. American hegemony produces profits, and for the sake of these profits Western leaders will risk the fate of the world.
As I have emphasized repeatedly, Americans as a result of their insouciance and patriotism live in a world in which the explanations they are given by government and the presstitutes are used to control what they think and believe. In this way, government and the interest groups that control government make their agendas independent of any control by the citizens. In the United States, and probably throughout the Western world, democracy simply does not exist. George Orwell predicted that this would be the case by 1984, but it took the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes to achieve it. Today in 2017 Big Brother does indeed rule the Western World.
Trump’s election was like Reagan’s. He appealed to the people instead of to the ruling interest groups. As a high official in Reagan’s government who was aligned with Reagan’s goals to end stagflation and the Cold War, I experienced first hand the cost of going against the powerful interest groups that are accustomed to ruling. We took part of their rule away from them, but now they have taken it back. And they are now stronger than before. Essentially, Trump is powerless and is limited to expressing his frustrations on Twitter.
In my opinion, the lesson being dealt to Trump will teach any future presidential candidate not to challenge the ruling oligarchy by appealing to the American people.
This means that democracy in America is stone dead. I sometimes wonder if democracy can be revived without violent revolution, and of course revolutions can go wrong.
Are Americans capable of violent revolution? If they are not, will the greedy elites remain in control until they stumble into a nuclear war?
General Lemnitzer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told President John F. Kennedy that the US could win a nuclear war with the Soviet Union if only JFK would give the go-ahead. General Lemnitzer also presented President Kennedy with the “Northwoods” plan that called for the US military to conduct false flag attacks on US citizens that could be blamed on Castro and serve as an excuse for a US invasion of Cuba. President Kennedy responded by removing Lemnitzer as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
A number of researchers have concluded that Lemnitzer’s removal convinced the military/security complex that Kennedy was soft on communism and a threat to American national security.
The Obama regime recreated the Russian scare. In his election campaign Trump revealed that he was out of step with the recreation of the Russian threat, for which he has been punished with “Russiagate.” Can a president concerned that he might be removed from office by a special prosecutor or possibly assassinated, resist the march toward war?
Trump is surrounded by a Secret Service that believes that protecting the President is protecting the United States. However, if the Secret Service is convinced by the Special Prosecutor, Congress, the military/security complex, and the presstitutes that Trump is in league with the Russians in a Russiagate conspiracy against the United States, the Secret Service could fail to protect Trump, just as they failed to protect President John F. Kennedy.
You can rescue yourself from the false report that Oswald assassinated President Kennedy by watching online the Secret Service agents, who protected President Kennedy in his open car from gunfire, being called away from the car so that the assassins could have a clear shot at Kennedy. You can see that the bullet hits Kennedy in the right front temple and blows off the back of his head. You can see his wife, Jackie, climb onto the trunk of the car to retrieve the back of the president’s head. So much for the fake story that Oswald shot JFK from behind. All evidence disproves the Oswald story. No evidence whatsoever supports it. This is the conclusion of many years of research by many authors.
Many researchers have concluded that the Warren Commission knew that JFK was assassinated by elements of the military/security complex, but that the commission knew that it could not tell the American people in the wake of the Cuban missile crisis that the US government had just murdered the US president. At a difficult time in the Cold War, Americans would loose confidence in their own military and security services. I can understand a decision to cover up what happened.
Nevertheless, those responsible should have been forced to resign on the grounds that they failed to protect the President of the United States, and under cover of preventing another such failure in the future, the black ops section of the CIA should have been closed down, as President Kennedy intended to do. The failure by the Johnson administration to remedy the situation has left the power in the hands of the security agencies to act against the president, as we are witnessing with the attack on Trump by CIA director John Brennan, and FBI directors Comey and Mueller.
Trump is portrayed by the presstitutes as an idiot. But he is not an idiot. Idiots don’t wind up being billionaires or married to the most beautiful woman on earth. Idiots don’t have the confidence to take on the interest groups that control the two political parties and win a presidential election.
Trump is anything but dumb, but he understands now that he is not really the president of the United States.
The United States is ruled by the militry/security complex, by the Federal Reserve in the interests of the big banks and Wall Street, by the extractive industries as evidenced by Trump handing over to them two national monuments in Utah to be ravaged, raped, and ruined for their profit, and by the Israel Lobby, which has kept Washington at war in the Middle East for 16 years. The Amerian people have no input into decisons. Americans are powerless and helpless, like Jews and everyone else in the Nazi camps and like the Palestinians in the Gaza ghetto. They have no voice and are irrelevant to the decisions made in Washington.
Once you understand this, you can understand why Trump would move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. The Israel Lobby is one of the most powerful interest groups in Washington. Trump, under attack from so many quarters can do no better than to have the Israel Lobby and Mossad on his side.
Who else can Trump turn to? The people in flyover America who elected him are powerless. The Isreal Lobby isn’t.
Just look at the results of Trump’s announcement that the US embassy will be located in Jerusalem. The neoconservatives who were determined to get rid of Trump because he voiced peace with Russia and the Muslims instead of US hegemony, now praise him. Even John Podhoretz, a leader of death-to-Trump, is euphoric that Trump flaunted the UN and international law and declared, in effect, Jerusalem to be Israel’s. National Review, formerly a conservative magazine for which I was once a contributing editor, but now a vassal of the Israel Lobby, described Trump’s action as “a blow against international anti-Semitism.”
If you were alone in Washington’s hot seat under constant attack by the pressitute media and the military/security complex and under investigation by a Special Prosecutor appointed for the explicit purpose of indicting you and removing you from office, and you could turn to a powerful interest group before which all tremble, would you not seek the protection of the Israel Lobby and Mossad? Some fool you would be not to do so. As the CIA has known for decades, the agency is penetrated by Mossad. Trump can know in advance if the CIA is going to assassinate him.
So, dear readers, you have asked me why Trump has opened the way for Israel’s complete takeover of Palestine. Perhaps the answer is that Trump is hoping that the powerful Israel Lobby will protect him from Mueller and the military/security complex, who are out to get him.
Perhaps it is a hopeful development that Trump has taken refuge in the Israel Lobby’s protection. Mossad, of course, is more capable than the CIA. If the Israel Lobby will protect Trump, perhaps Trump can survive the assault on him by the military/security complex and actually restore trust between the two major nuclear powers. What does Israel have to lose by preserving life on earth? Israel has already gained, in the face of international law, UN resolutions, and a compliant America and Europe, all of Palestine. Israel has achieved what the American Empire achieved against the native Americans. And now Trump gives Israel the last prize–Jerusalem. Why should not the Israel Lobby protect Trump?
Americans can bitch about the Jews all they want (until it becomes illegal), but what is there to bitch about if the Israel Lobby can save the only politician in the Western world who wants to normalize relations and reduce the high level of tensions with Russia?
If the Israel Lobby will save us and the planet from nuclear destruction, more power to them. It is unfortunate for the long-suffering Palestinians that they are the sacrificial lamb, but is the fault Trump’s or the fault of the military/security complex, the DNC, and the presstitute media for putting Trump in a desperate situation?
