UPDATE: I’m worse today than I was yesterday. Operating on about 20 minutes of sleep and no breathing capacity makes for a very interesting perception problem. I’m in 2D land where everything looks like it’s in two dimensions. I’m off to get some BronkAid, NyQuil and maybe a shot of whiskey. That should do the trick.
I’ve been feeling pretty bad these last couple of days so I am taking the day off today. I treated myself to Fallout 4 yesterday since Steam was having their Xmas sale so I intend to spend the day yelling at my computer and getting eaten by ghouls in the wasteland. I consider it training for a post Jan. 20th New American Century.
I see the establishment “news” outlets are taking a day off as well and the ones that aren’t running news reruns this morning (MSNBC literally running yesterday’s news in place of Morning Joe) are leading their programs with the death of George Michael.. a guy busted for giving random guys head in a public bathroom in a park where kids play and busted many times over for various other acts… at least one other involving a public bathroom.
The big stories this weekend involved the UN Security Council FINALLY being able to pass yet another resolution condemning Israel’s illegal settlements in the West Bank of Palestine and of course the Russian plane dropping out of the sky that just HAPPENED to be heading to Syria.
I’ll be covering those tomorrow morning.
Wait a minute.. did I just lead with the Michael story as well? Oh Goddamn it…
I hope you all had a good Christmas and are looking forward to the new year. I’ll be doing my best tomorrow to make you depressed about it, like I always do.
Have a good one and I will see you tomorrow.
p.s. Any Fallout players? I need tips. Everything is kicking my ass out there.

Just days after Syria celebrated the liberation of Aleppo from U.S.-backed “moderate” terrorists with the help of Russia, Iran and Turkey, “ISIS™” has released yet another propaganda video.
Unlike the previous “ISIS™” efforts that I have thoroughly reviewed and have shown to be fakes, this one appears to be real. They have taken two men and burned them alive.
I will not be posting the video itself but if you wish too see it, go here.
They are taken out of a cage where they stand quite dramatically back to back with their heads down, they are forced to crawl like dogs down a path to a location where they are hooked to chains and are burned alive. Neither of them seems to resist at all, even when the fire is lit and approaches them from behind. They are dripping with some form of accelerent. Only one looks back at the flames as they approach the other.
There is a cut scene to statements made by the men which was clearly recorded some time before the burning scene which leads me to believe the men were probably heavily drugged at the time of their deaths.
It could have still been faked but if it was, the CGI was of much higher quality than their previous efforts. I’m guessing it was not.
The video was supposedly shot in Al-Bab where Turkey recently bombed “ISIS™” targets, killing 63 of them according to Reuters. Hurriyet Daily is reporting today that 16 Turkish soldiers have been killed fighting in Al-Bab. There is nothing on their front page about this video.
Since the liberation of Aleppo we have seen a terrorist car-bombing attack in Turkey, the murder of the Russian ambassador and now this.
So let’s see… Russia was paid back for killing and defeating the CIA’s “moderates” in Aleppo and Turkey has also now been paid back… I guess that just leaves Iran.
UPDATE: You should check out this article. The writer makes the argument that the fall of al-Bab to the Syrian government and the Turks will ultimately hurt the Kurds’ ambitions for creating their own Western Kurdistan in Syria and ultimately help keep them from further destabilizing Turkey itself. KurdISIS?

On Oct. 11th, 2006, the U.S. Department of Justice issued a press statement about the indictment of a U.S. citizen for treason and providing material support to our enemy, al-Qaeda.
In part, this is what that release said:
““Adam Gadahn is a U.S. citizen who made a choice to join and act as a propagandist for al Qaeda, an enemy of this country responsible for the horrific deaths of thousands of innocent Americans on Sept. 11, 2001,” said Deputy Attorney General Paul J. McNulty. “The War on Terror is a fight for hearts and minds, and Gadahn gave himself to our enemies in al Qaeda for the purpose of being a central part of their propaganda machine. By making this choice, we believe Gadahn committed treason – perhaps the most serious offense for which any person can be tried under our Constitution.”
Gadahn was born Adam Pearlman to a Jewish family in Florida. He “converted” to Islam and began making videos promoting the Islamist viewpoint and praising al-Qaeda. In 2006 he was indicted by the Federal Grand Jury for treason and other various crimes and in 2014 he was supposedly killed by President Peace Prize.
Of course, that was all bullshit. Adam Pearlman played the role of the al-Qaeda boogeyman in order to demonize Muslims in general and help promote George Bush’s endless Global War OF Terror. The fact that he lived with his grandfather who just happened to be Carl Pearlman, a Jewish activist and on the Board of Directors of the Anti-Defamation League should not be overlooked.
But that’s not the point.
According to the official story (and for clarity of purpose, we will stick with the “official story” here) U.S. citizen Pearlman “radicalized” and converted to Islam only to become a mouthpiece for the radical Islamist ideology of al-Qaeda and served them by providing them aid and comfort through media. He did not take up arms against our country and he did not plant bombs targeting our soldiers. His crime, his treason, was simply to promote the Islamist ideology of al-Qaeda in a post 9/11 world.
His reward, supposedly, was death by drone strike on January 19, 2015. Actually, he was such a successful boogeyman, he got to be killed twice. Once in 2015 and once before in January of 2008 supposedly by another drone strike.
So he got two drone strikes for his treason.
This past week we have all heard way too much from an American asshole named Bilal Abdul Kareem. In one instance last week he was Tweeting from eastern Aleppo about it being his last days on earth because he and his “moderate” terrorist friends were going to be killed by the “invading” Syrian government.
And in a video released this week (no he wasn’t killed) he is praising another of his “moderate” terrorist friends and literally patting him on his suicide belt.
That’s not his real name by the way. Like “Gadahn”, he changed his once he “converted” to Islam back in ’97 or so. According to his own bio page, Bilal’s sister was named Sheila Jackson so I suppose that’s his real name as well.
On his bio page he says he attended a small college in New York wanting to be a writer and actor. He says he worked as an actor for a time after leaving school and then ended up back in New York living near a Mosque where attended and ended up converting.
Remarkably, it wasn’t enough for this new-found Muslim to simply be a Muslim. No, Bilal had to set out to Sudan of all places to learn what it meant to be a Muslim.
Of course, that would have been about 1998 just around the same time bin Laden and the CIA’s “al-Qaeda” was destabilizing that country on behalf of the masters of the universe.
Bilal ended up in Egypt where he took a job working for a Saudi Arabian propaganda media outlet called Huda TV. He produced a show for them called “Solutions” which was just pure propaganda from what I understand. English language Saudi propaganda in Egypt. That was during the last years of the U.S.-backed murderous Mubarak regime.
From there his career found him following various bloody U.S. inspired conflicts in places like Rwanda and Libya making documentaries basically praising the CIA-backed Islamists after the horrific bloodshed they unleashed on those nations.
In 2012 he really jump started his career by heading over to Syria to help promote Obama’s regime change operation by trying to cast a loving light on our “moderate” terrorists.
“My first trip to Syria was in the summer of 2012. I was initially hosted by Ahrar al-Sham.” Bilal
Ahrar al-Sham is a terrorist organization recognized as such by most of the free world.
“A German court has convicted four men who procured tens of thousands of euros (dollars) worth of supplies for the ultraconservative Ahrar al-Sham group in Syria of supporting a terrorist organization.” Fox News
In Aspen Colorado in June of 2016, Sec. of State John Kerry made this statement:
“From Orlando to San Bernardino to the Philippines and Bali, we’ve seen pictures and we’ve heard testimony of shocking crimes committed by al-Qaida, by Boko Haram, by Jaysh al-Islam, by Ahrar al-Sham, by al-Shabaab, Daesh, other groups against innocent civilians, against journalists, and against teachers particularly.” John Kerry
So even if the U.S. doesn’t support the notion that al-Sham is a terrorist organization like the rest of the civilized world does, our leaders are fully aware of the terrorism they commit if they only accidentally admit it to closed audiences.
It should be noted that Ahrar al-Sham is Wahhabist/ Salafist which is a unique brand of ultra-capitalist Islam from Saudi Arabia, the same country Bilal worked for while he was producing propaganda in Egypt.
Here’s a little more background on Bilal’s first sponsor in Syria:
“The U.S. Director of National Intelligence considers Ahrar al-Sham and Fatah al-Sham among the most effective Syrian opposition groups…Ahrar al-Sham worked with the Islamic State (IS) until January 2014…” Stanford.edu
The CIA and the State Department have been funding and arming this terrorist organization since the beginning of the color revolution in Syria. They are aligned with al-Nusra (al-Qaeda) and for a long time, were also aligned with “ISIS” perhaps even at a time when Bilal was working with them.
For those of you who don’t know, al-Nusra is al-Qaeda. They are the same thing, just rebranded for American consumption since it wouldn’t do to have folks cheering for the guys who supposedly killed 3,000 U.S. citizens on 9/11.
One of al-Nusra’s prominent leaders in Syria was Shaykh Abu Firas who was killed earlier this year:
“A prominent leader in Syrian al Qaeda offshoot Nusra Front was killed on Sunday in what rebel sources said appeared to be a U.S. drone strike in the rebel-held northwestern province of Idlib.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks violence in the country, confirmed reports on websites by militant sympathizers that Abu Firas, “the Syrian”, was killed along with a number of his companions.” Reuters
Why is he interesting? Because he has a looooooong history of working with al-Qaeda and even, some say, with bin Laden himself.
“Islamist rebel sources said Abu Firas was a founding member of the militant group who fought in Afghanistan in the 1980s and was a senior member of its policy-making Shura Council.
He worked with al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in galvanizing support among Pakistani supporters of the fundamentalist Taliban movement in Afghanistan several decades ago, the sources said.” Reuters
What’s that? al-Nusra leader Shaykh Abu Firas was a “founding member” of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and “worked with” bin Laden “decades ago”?
Did he work with bin Laden on Sept. 11th I wonder (remember, we are operating on the basis of the OFFICIAL STORY of 9/11 and al-Qaeda here folks and doing that for effect, so calm down)
Wow. Yeah, I guess al-Nusra is al-Qaeda huh? Gee, I wonder why I include info on this dude in an article about Fox News’ new hero Bilal Abdul Kareem (and yes, he’s been featured on Fox News, CNN, VICE and the Intercept to name but a few)
Oh. Maybe this is why:
“Firstly Shaykh I’d like to greet you with: As salaao alaykum warahmutullaahi wa barakaatuh” Bilal Abdul Kareem said to al-Qaeda founder and friend of Osama bin Laden
As best as I can understand that translation he said to him “As (to) you and prayers and blessings Rahmtlh”
Prayers and blessings to an al-Qaeda founder, huh?
Bilal has been running a “moderate” terrorist promotion Youtube page for years now. His specific interview with this specific terrorist only stands out because of who the man is and what he is supposed to have done over the past few decades.
Most of you who come here know full well what I think of the official story of 9/11 and the CIA contractors known as al-Qaeda or al-Nusra or whatever they happen to be calling themselves today.
Whatever I think of 9/11 doesn’t matter. The law on the books states that anyone providing aid and comfort to al-Qaeda is guilty of treason and must be arrested and prosecuted and I believe helping them make self-promotion videos to be dispersed to Muslims around the world highlighting the differences between their radical Islamic ideology as opposed to that of “ISIS” falls into that category. Its a recruitment film and Bilal has done several of them.
It’s understandable of course seeing as how he was bought and paid for by Saudi Arabia all those years ago and bin Laden, al-Qaeda, Wahhabism and all the rest of the neoliberal Muslim ideology comes straight from Saudi Arabia… like much of the funding for the “moderate” terrorists in Syria that Bilal was interviewing and promoting.
In 2011 in Yemen, 16-year-old U.S. citizen Abdulrahman al-Awlaki was targeted and killed by an Obama approved drone strike because his father happened to be Anwar al-Awlaki, a cleric turned Al Qaeda propagandist.
That boy never gave aid and support to al-Sham or al-Nusra or al-Qaeda and he damn sure never sat down with one of bin Laden’s friends and co-workers and offered him prayers and blessings.
Yet President Peace Prize killed him with a drone strike just the same and the mainstream media gave him a pass for it because he was close to an al-Qaeda propagandist.
So why are the MSM featuring this al-Qaeda propagandist on their networks these days? Am I the only reporter out here who takes the time to do the most basic of background checks on Bilal Abdul Kareem?
The other day, Caleb T. Maupin held up a picture of Bilal Abdul Kareem gently patting a terrorist’s suicide belt and asked John Kirby about how twisted our mainstream news sources have become. Kirby aw-shucked his way out of it. I followed his Twitter feed for that.
— Caleb T. Maupin (@calebmaupin) December 22, 2016
Perhaps a better question for Maupin to ask next time might be:
“Why hasn’t the State Department killed this al-Qaeda propagandist with a drone strike like you did Adam Pearlman Gadahn and Anwar al-Awlaki? Is it because you aren’t done with him yet?”
Now I’m not advocating Obama unleash his death squads from above on anyone. That’s not my thing.
But I do think it would be interesting to hear someone like Kirby try to explain why a 16-year-old kid is whacked because he happened to lose the lottery of birth and get raised by a guy who was an al-Qaeda propagandist… while this guy, Bilal Abdul Kareem, is a new darling of the mainstream media after having a sit-down with a former al-Qaeda founder and who has made a career for himself producing promotional videos for al-Qaeda linked terrorists in Syria.
Seems like someone has their priorities messed up in D.C. these days.
This is great.

Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov’s assassination was barely three days ago and yet the rhetoric surrounding it has already become vile here in the land of the big neoliberal PX.
Over at the NY Daily News, a columnist not only excuses the brutal murder of the Russian ambassador to Turkey, he applauds it and even suggests he would like too see more Russian dignitaries murdered in cold blood across the globe. The obligatory reference to Hitler is made of course.
“As Vladimir Putin’s man in Turkey, Karlov was the public face of that murderous dictator’s war crimes around the globe and of oppression at home. Andrei Karlov is the human embodiment of policies that deployed bunker busters to kill babies, sent fighter planes on scorched earth bombing runs that destroyed a whole city, aided Syrian madman Bashar al-Assad in his campaign that has killed hundreds of thousands, and even ordered attacks on UN aid workers…
After watching the death of Karlov, I could not help but remember the case of Ernst vom Rath, the Nazi ambassador to France, who was gunned down inside his consulate by a Jewish student in 1938…
That era’s politicians fiddled while Hitler burned down Europe, so it took a nobody named Herschel Grynszpan to stand up for freedom and make a powerful statement that evil must be fought whether in a conference room or on a battlefield” Gersh Kuntzman
I would be remiss if I failed to point out that Kuntzman is Jewish and his murderous hero from 1938 is also of that same religious order.
Kurt Nimmo over at Another Day in the Empire does a good job reporting on this overtly fascist sounding diatribe from Mr. Kuntzman and he explains the connection between the ownership of the Daily News and the Clinton/CIA regime quite nicely. Of course Russia is only being charged with what we actually do in the Middle East. Russia is simply there to stop our CIA’s “moderate” terrorists from forcing a regime change in Syria, which apparently really pisses off Gersh “The Mockingbird” Kuntzman.
But what Kurt fails to mention, and what Cuntman fails to mention about his analogy is this:
Herschel Feibel Grynszpan (German: Hermann Grünspan; 28 March 1921 — last rumoured to be alive 1946, declared dead 1960) was a Polish-Jewish refugee, born in Germany. His assassination of the Nazi German diplomat Ernst vom Rath on 7 November 1938 in Paris provided the Nazis with the pretext for the Kristallnacht, the antisemitic pogrom of 9–10 November 1938. Grynszpan was seized by the Gestapo after the Fall of France and brought to Germany.
What followed the assassination of Ernst vom Rath goes well beyond Kristallnacht and the reported 91 Jews who were killed those two nights.
Kristallnacht was followed by additional economic and political persecution of Jews, and it is viewed by historians as part of Nazi Germany’s broader racial policy, and the beginning of the Final Solution and The Holocaust.
Used as a pretext to demonize the Jews of Poland, France and Germany, Herschel Grynszpan’s killing of the German ambassador to France set in motion a plan that the Nazis had already concocted that ended up becoming the Holocaust. So in terms of creating a atmosphere in Germany conducive to such an operation, the assassination fit the bill perfectly.
Seems kind of odd that a Jewish writer in New York would miss the real significance of that cold blooded murder back in November of ’38.
Kuntzman also misrepresents Grynszpan’s status at the time, writing that he was “a student” when he killed the German ambassador. Nothing could be further from the truth. He was actually a vagabond running around in France illegally and he and his family had just been picked up by local police along with about 12,000 other Jews in France and essentially kicked out of the country.
That’s right… Kuntzman’s hero assassin was actually… a refugee.
“Initially, Grynszpan lived a carefree, bohemian life as a “poet of the streets”, spending his days aimlessly wandering the streets of Paris reciting Yiddish poems to himself; Grynszpan’s two biggest interests other than exploring Paris were hanging out in coffeehouses and going to the cinema. Grynszpan spent this period trying to get legal residence in France, without which he could not work or study legally, but was rejected by French officials. His re-entry permit for Germany expired in April 1937 and his Polish passport expired in January 1938, leaving him without legal papers….
In August 1938 the German authorities announced that all residence permits for foreigners were being cancelled and would have to be renewed. This was in reaction to a Polish decree which was to take away the Polish citizenship of Jews living outside the country, including those in Germany. A few days before that decree was to come into force, on 26 October, the Gestapo was ordered to arrest and deport all Polish Jews residing in Germany immediately. The Grynszpan family was among the estimated 12,000 Polish Jews arrested, stripped of their property, and herded aboard trains headed for Poland…
The Grynszpans and thousands of other Polish-Jewish deportees stranded at the border were fed by the Polish Red Cross. Conditions for the hapless refugees trapped out in the open on the German-Polish frontier were extremely bad.”
One can understand why the Daily News wouldn’t want Kuntzman to point out his murdering hero’s refugee status these days. The sanctity of the refugees currently being shipped into this country must not be challenged. They offer Big Business a lot of cheap labor and we wouldn’t want to hurt Big Business now would we?
Whether you believe Grynszpan acted alone or was employed by the Nazis (or just picked up and used as a patsy) one thing is for sure: his murder of vom Rath set in motion something that was undoubtedly far worse for the people of Europe, France and Germany than anything they had suffered before it. And it came at just the right time for the Nazis.
“Grynszpan was distraught that his action was used by the Nazis as a ‘justification’ for further violent assaults on the German Jews (although his own family, having already been deported to the Polish border, were safe from this particular manifestation of Nazi anti-Semitism). The assassination of vom Rath was a pretext for the launch of the pogrom. The Nazi government had been planning violence against the Jews for some time and were waiting for an appropriate pretext.
Now we have a situation in Turkey in which a member of their Special Operations police force appears to have been either working security for the event or pretending to have been, taking the life of a beloved Russian ambassador in front of a bunch of cameras.
Who cares what he shouts and what he spouts for public consumption on that video. Anyone can say anything to deflect their darker purpose and they often do.
The fact that the Special Police are then reported to have killed him… off camera of course… and staged his death scene plays right into the hands of those who would believe this act was orchestrated by hands far more powerful than those of some idiot 22-year-old Turkish cop “inspired by ISIS”.
In Turkey a couple narratives are taking shape:
No one over there believes he was “radicalized” by “ISIS” and the official position of both Turkey and Russia is now coming out.
“Turkey blamed the murder of Russia’s ambassador to the country on a US-based a cleric on Tuesday, as both Ankara and Moscow vowed the killing would not undermine a fragile alliance between them.
Turkey’s foreign minister on Tuesday told John Kerry, the U.S. Secretary of State, that Ankara and Moscow believe followers of Fethullah Gulen were behind the killing of Andrei Karlov on Monday.
“Turkey and Russia know that behind the attack… there is FETO,” Mevlut Cavusoglu told Mr Kerry, referring to Turkey’s acronym for Mr Gulen’s organisation, the state-run Anadolu news agency said.” Telegraph
The Gulenists were behind the failed coup in Turkey a couple months ago. But remember, they are only a tool of Western might much like the Saudis and their Wahhabist terrorists.
This is why they were sought out and expelled from the Turkish military and positions of authority in the Turkish government after the coup failed (probably with the help of the Russians)
So it is definitely an interesting comparison when the war-mongering, New McCarthyist Kuntzman brings up Grynszpan isn’t it? Not for the ridiculous reasons he suggests but because its quite possible and even probable that the event was staged for effect, one way or another, and could and probably will lead to a sort of Turkish Kristallnacht.
What Kuntzman is doing is trying to make Mevlut Mert Altintas and all the other Gulenist traitors in Turkey seem like sympathetic characters. To do that he is invoking the Jews of the Holocaust and Adolf Hitler.
This obvious Mockingbird effort leads me to believe there is a very good likelihood that the murder was concocted by the CIA/NATO as payback for Russia helping Syria liberate Aleppo. The scripted statement he made for the camera that AP journalist conveniently left running (and even zoomed out before leaving it so it would capture the whole performance) about swearing allegiance to “ISIS” or some other such nonsense also leads me to that conclusion.
Kuntzman’s logic (if you want to call it that) is extremely short sighted and the kind that is always employed by friends of empire.
Can you imaging the outcry if someone wrote that US ambassadors should be killed on sight after we illegally invaded and occupied Afghanistan and Iraq? Or after we bombed Libya into a stone-aged mess and sent murderous terrorists to Syria to destabilize it? Could you imagine the outcry if someone from Russia Today made such a suggestion?
Could you imagine how writers like Kuntzman would react if a writer in Iran suggesting murdering Israeli ambassadors after their three bombing campaigns against the Palestinian people in Gaza?
There are a lot of people currently calling out the Daily News and Kuntzman over this incredibly insensitive and despicable article. I am just one of many.
The Daily News should print a retraction and promise to never hire that idiot again. Let him do his pro-gun-grabbing stunts and stage his pathetic little plays off-off-off-Broadway somewhere and keep him away from any publications of consequence because not only is he extremely offensive, he’s also apparently not a very good researcher.
A writer of Jewish heritage should probably refrain from writing sympathetically about the guy who provided the exact pretext for the Holocaust the Nazis needed at the exact time they needed it. Especially when you consider that guy was eventually caught by the Nazis and ended up living a long life afterward.

And who can blame him? The Turkish bodyguard is standing right behind the Turkish Foreign Minister who just happens to be seated next to the Minister from Iran. And as we all know, Iran has been helping Syria and Russia defend the Syrian people from Obama’s terrorists in Aleppo. So yeah, the guy is absolutely right to watch the man constantly.

These days every CIA psyop has to get a Hollywood movie. The powers that be figure once an American audience sees something on the big screen, they believe it to be true no matter how stupid and full of holes their propaganda script was. Here’s a partial list:
This list doesn’t include CIA produced films that are intended to make joining the CIA seem cool and exciting. Nor does it include revisionist history efforts by the CIA to cover their tracks or to rewrite the history of various world events. Nor does it cover “hearts and minds” propaganda efforts. Examples of these are films like The Hurt Locker, American Sniper, Battleship, Iron Man, the Sum of All Fears… etc. etc. etc.
Today we can add another new project to the CIA psyops library of Hollywood propaganda efforts thanks to George Clooney. He intends to make a big Hollywood feature film about the “hearts and minds” campaign known as the White Helmets.
Whenever I hear the name “George Clooney” I throw up on myself. The guy is the biggest wholesale sellout to the CIA and the disinformation peddlers that Hollywood has ever produced.
When the CIA and the New McCarthyites of the FBI finally get around to making a movie about how it’s cool to turn in your left-leaning friends so they can be saved by being reeducated in the camps, George Clooney will not only star in it, he’ll write it, produce it and paint all the damn sets himself.
I can imagine whenever a Mockingbird walks into Clooney’s office somewhere, George drops to his knees, opens his mouth and closes his eyes. He doesn’t need to wait for instructions. He knows what side his butt is lubed on.
Just think about that.
My list starts off with a movie about how al-Qaeda supposedly attacked us on 9/11 kicking off the Project for the New American Century’s endless war on terror and it ends with Clooney announcing he’s making a movie to glorify a PR campaign made up of al-Nusra/al-Qaeda terrorists who are STILL working for the CIA destabilizing YET ANOTHER COUNTRY (like they destabilized Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, Libya, Syria… and yes, the United States)
Fascinating isn’t it? Every psyop has to get it’s own big budget Hollywood blockbuster even when they overlap each other’s propaganda bullshit.
Funny world, this post 9/11 thing we live in isn’t it?
Lot’s of CIA money floating around in Hollywood these days. If you’re a slightly talented sycophant with no moral center, that’s the place to go. Good career move. Either there, D.C. or Aleppo. Take your pick.

First of all, stop saying Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 2.8 million votes. It’s simply not verified in my opinion.
All of those additional votes came well after the election was finalized and almost every single one of them came from one state, California, where Killary “won” by a whopping 4.3 million votes (most showed up well after the election)
Alex Padilla is the Secretary of State in California and as we know, the Sec. of State overseas the elections of a state. He’s a Democrat who also just happens to have two Mexican parents and when he took office his primary concern was to “modernize” voting in California.
“Padilla said his priorities include upgrading the state’s voting systems to use modern technology and making the act of voting more accessible and convenient..” LA Times
That’s right. He brought in more electronic voting machines.
Some of you might have forgotten the massive election fraud that took place in California during the 2016 Democratic Party primary elections, but I didn’t. Millions of likely Bernie supporters found their party affiliation suddenly switched from Democrat to Republican or Independent come election day which meant they had to ask for a certain special type of ballot or vote via an provisional ballot which were later shredded before they were actually counted.
There has been no recount of the general election results in California. Jill Stein wasn’t interested in asking for a recount in states where Hillary clearly stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders this year. In fact, she didn’t seem all that interested in doing recounts in states where Hillary won the general… for some reason.
So this story that Hillary won the popular vote is bunk because it is based entirely on a state where we know election fraud was already committed on behalf of Hillary Clinton this year. Stop making that claim.
Why would they pad the numbers in California after Hillary clearly lost the election? It’s simple: because they needed her to “win” the popular vote in order for John Podesta to run “install Hillary no matter what” campaign.
And speaking of John Podesta’s attempts to subvert democracy in America, the Electoral College voters have finally had their say and in spite of Vampire John’s best efforts, Donald Trump retained nearly all of the EC votes he earned in the general election and is now officially the president elect (God help us all)
“They convened amid unusual scrutiny, widespread protests and rafts of speculation about efforts to alter the outcome, but, in the end, the nation’s 538 presidential electors mostly stuck to the script Monday, formally sealing Donald Trump’s victory with 304 votes in the electoral college, well above what he needed to capture the White House.” LA Times
In the end only two republican EC voters voted against their state’s wishes and cast their votes for someone other than Donald Trump.
As it turned out, after a month of Podesta’s PR efforts to get folks to beg their EC voters to abandon democracy (and the efforts of the unfunny bunch at SNL) the only ones who ended up wanting to vote against the will of the people were Democrats, who tried to “vote their conscience” and vote for Bernie Sanders instead of Killary. Most of them were blocked but still 7 or 8 of them were allowed to do it, quadrupling the number that switched away from Trump. Far more would have.
I guess the EC voters remembered the primary as well.
Yesterday John Podesta went on Meet the Press with Chuck Todd and breathlessly blamed everyone but himself and his candidate for Hillary’s loss. Specifically he blamed Russia, the deplorables and James Comey. He apparently want’s to know “what Trump knew and when did he know it and was he in touch with the Russians” and later said he wasn’t trying to influence what the EC voters would do on Monday, which is a completely laughable statement since that is ALL that he has done since Hillary lost Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
There were a lot of reasons why she lost.
The CIA says the email leaks were “likely” from the “da ebil Ruskies” but that story is a load of bunk, kind of like the story about Hillary winning the popular vote. It’s based on little evidence and the evidence they do cite is spurious at best.
More likely someone within our intelligence industry decided they wanted anyone other than Hillary. Perhaps it’s because she seemed to want to start WWIII against the Russians. Perhaps it’s because she would have been “humanitarianly” bombing nation after nation as soon as she got into office. Perhaps someone just hates the Clintons with a passion and figured we couldn’t survive 4 more years of left-cover.
And perhaps, since we have now made it legal for Big Business to scoop up everything you do, say, Tweet, write or Istagram anywhere and everywhere, some company screwed over by Hillary or Bill in the past decided to get even and the folks at the CIA and the NSA can’t let that be known for fear the public might just demand we repeal CISA and the USA Freedom Act.
However you look at it, the John Podesta effort to subvert our democratic system which started with Jill Stein is now over. He and Killary lost. The EC voters have voted and they did pretty much exactly what the voters across the country told them to: keep Killary the hell out of the White House.
Now we officially have Trump to deal with. Oh joy.

So an “off duty” Special Forces cop in Turkey was working security for an event featuring Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov and standing directly behind him when he took out his service pistol and executed the Russian diplomat on the eve of a very important meeting between Russia, Turkey and Iran on the subject of what to do next in Syria.
For all intents and purposes, the occupation of east Aleppo by our proxy regime change terrorists ended this weekend as the UNSC member states agreed to a cease-fire and evacuation plan which would see all of President Obama’s “moderate” terrorists bused out of Aleppo.
(You can see all my latest updates on the situation here)
Apparently the shooter, identified as 22-year-old Mevlut Mert Altintas, said things like “We will not forget Aleppo, we will not forget Syria,” and “No one can be safe as long as our brothers there are not. Get out of my way.” in Turkish before screaming in Arabic “Allahü Akbar!” (God is great!), and quoted a follower of the Prophet Mohamad, ‘We are the ones who pledged Bai’a (fealty) to Mohammed on the terms of jihad as long as we live.”
Altintas graduated from the Special Forces academy back in 2014.
Why would he be talking about Russia killing “us” in Aleppo? Is the Turkish police department in the habit of hiring merc Takfari terrorists in their Special Forces division? Or does that have something to do with those 14 US coalition forces members being caught with the terrorists over there just recently?
Remember back in late Sept. of this year when John Kerry was upset because it looked like the Russians were going to wipe out all of the CIA’s “moderate” terrorists in Aleppo? State Department Spokesman John Kirby got downright rude when he said Russia was going to be sending people home in “body bags” if they didn’t cooperate with Uncle Sam on Syria and stop killing John Brennan’s contractors.
“Extremist groups will continue to exploit the vacuums that are there in Syria to expand their operations, which could include attacks against Russian interests, perhaps even Russian cities. Russia will continue to send troops home in body bags, and will continue to lose resources, perhaps even aircraft,” John Kirby
So let me get this straight… a Special Forces cop is assigned to protect the Russian ambassador, he kills the Russian ambassador, says it’s because Russia stopped the CIA-backed regime change operation in Syria… and John Kirby predicted Russians would “go home in body bags” if Russia didn’t stop messing up their regime change operation in Aleppo.
Did I hear that right?
Oh yeah, the officer is reportedly one of those fired after the CIA’s failed coup earlier this year.
That’s almost too neatly bundled, now isn’t it? All they need for that one is a nifty little bow for Christmas.
Here’s an interesting side note:
Why do you think it is that so many of America’s oligarchs and their puppet politicians want to regime change Syria so badly? Gee, I don’t know… that blue line doesn’t go STRAIGHT THROUGH ALEPPO does it? Oh yeah, it does…

UPDATE: The Russian/Turkish/Iranian negotiations on Syria will go on as planned. This will not drive a wedge between Syria and Russia.
UPDATE: Ah, he was a cop.(see below)
UPDATE: see updates at end of article
This morning I wrote:
“Unfortunately their relative calm may be short lived. The animals who run this country from the smoky boardrooms of the Chamber of Commerce and the Federal Reserve never give up. The way they see it, if these terrorists were unsuccessful, they’ll just get worse ones. And if they can’t force a regime change via a color revolution, then they’ll just start planning another 9/11. One way or the other they intend to see their plans come to fruition.”
Goddamn, I hate being right all the time.
On what appears to be live TV, Russian ambassador Andrey Karlov has been shot and killed by some young, military-aged man who was dressed up in his “businessman” costume and screaming in Turkish “Don’t forget about Aleppo, don’t forget about Syria,”
Of course, he finished with a flurry of “Allahu Akbar”s… and was reportedly shot to death by police sometime later, off camera.
Erdogan and Putin have been getting closer in recent weeks. They’ve been working on an evacuation deal which appears to have been torpedoed by U.S. interests when more terrorists attacked and burned a bunch of the buses being used for the evacuation yesterday. Like when the Pentagon got it’s proxy mercs in Aleppo to target an aid convoy in order to undermine a cease-fire deal a couple months ago, this attack similarly shelved yet another attempt at deescalation in the area.
Now we have this rather staged looking event (notice the cameraman conveniently zooms out before leaving his camera running so the gunman can do his little scene?)
Who would allow someone to walk around freely behind the ambassador while he was giving a speech? How were armed people allowed anywhere near a Russian ambassador? Is he a member of the Turkish security assigned to protect the ambassador?
A lot of questions.
I will tell you one thing, this looks a lot like the shooting down of that Russian fighter jet half a year ago, doesn’t it?
UPDATE: Well, one of my questions has been answered. The gunman was a cop.
“He shot the envoy for the second time after the scene was evacuated. It has also been reported that the attacker entered the scene by showing a police identity and wearing a suit.” Hurriyet Daily
“According to Turkish media reports, the police officer who shot dead Andrey Karlov recited a message in Arabic…”
That explains his appearance and how he was able to get so close to the ambassador while armed.
And we are to believe the other cops killed him?
“The assailant was a 22-year-old off-duty police officer who worked in the Turkish capital, Melih Gokcek, Ankara’s mayor, said. “
I smell a CIA rat in the Turkish police department.
UPDATE: Oh look. He’s “special forces” and it has nothing to do with “radical Islam”
“The assassin was identified as a Turkish special forces police officer, Ankara mayor Melih Gokcek told AFP. Gokcek said the attack was aimed at ruining relations between Turkey and Russia. The two countries had begun normalizing ties in June 2016. That followed a strained period caused when a Turkish combat aircraft shot down a Russian military jet in November 2015.”
UPDATE: (H/T Penny) Tass is reporting the gunman is Mevlut Mert Altintas, a former officer who had been fired after the CIA’s attempted coup 6 months ago.
“The man who assassinated the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, on Monday night is identified as Mevlut Mert Altintas, a former office of the Turkish police who was fired from the forces of law and order in the course of investigation of the July 15 abortive putsch…” TASS
I don’t buy it. How slack does their security have to be to allow an already discredited cop, kicked off the force for being on the payroll of the CIA, that close to the Russian ambassador? Bullshit.
The Daily Mirror has already been given a photo of his police ID… almost like they had it ready to go.
Does that remind anyone of the photo IDs they “found” in the rubble after 9/11? Or how about all those photo IDs the “terrorists” always leave lying around after their attacks?
They have also already released a photo of the perp’s dead body lying in a hallway somewhere.
New photos from the scene show a little blood underneath the head of the Russian ambassador as well as shell casings on the floor.
I noticed something strange about the photo of the dead guy.
He seems a hell of a lot smaller than the former cop waving the gun around, doesn’t he? And am I crazy, or is that a 5 O’clock shadow on his face?
UPDATE: Found a clear image of the dead guy. No 5 O’Clock shadow.
Still looks like a different guy to me.
UPDATE: Gunman was standing behind Russian ambassador. He was clearly there working security.
more to follow.

President Obama’s 6-year regime change operation in Syria is grinding to a halt as Aleppo is finally almost completely free of his mercenary terrorists from places like Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan. They are being allowed to get on buses and head over to Ilib where they can continue to terrorize Syrians in hopes of earning themselves a place of honor in Barack’s new Syria but we all know that’s not going to happen.
Pundits are arguing on Feux News about how Obama failed to “win” this “humanitarian” intervention. Fake Dems say it’s all Putin’s fault while folks like Carl Rove say he waited too long to start bombing the legitimate government of Syria for no apparent reason.
Rove said Barack should have been bombing Assad’s air-force bases back in 2009 so Russia couldn’t have gotten involved. Of course, Mr. Rove seems to have forgotten in his zeal for blood-lust that the so-called “protests” didn’t start until March of 2011, exactly three months after Obama sent a regime change specialist, Robert Ford, to the country to serve as our ambassador. The US had no Ambassador in Syria since 2005. Obama pulled him out after he got the color revolution started. Ford wasn’t even there a full year.
I wonder why Rove had 2009 stuck in his mind as the year he thinks we should have started a full-on war of aggression against Syria. Oh yeah. That was the year Assad said no to the Qatar-Turkey pipeline.
The battle for Aleppo 2016 seems to have run it’s course. Life is returning to normal in the government controlled areas and some folks are looking to get back to their homes in eastern Aleppo that Barack’s terrorists chased they from over the past year. Yes there are still regime change propagandists out there still trying desperately to angle for some new pro-war PR scheme, but for the most part everyone has given up on trying to get President Peace Prize to bomb the shit out of whole of Syria for the time being.
That little propaganda campaign known as Project Bana™ has slipped back into Aleppo (as if she and her family were ever even from Aleppo) and staged themselves alongside some refugees so they could do a photo shoot. Notice in the background there are an awful lot of military-aged young terrorist-looking men standing around. I guess they are there to make sure no one figures out who this woman and girl are and what they are doing there seeing as how I bet most real Syrians see them as traitors and terrorist sympathizers.

Once “out” Project Bana™ hung out with some of Obama’s regime change proxy warriors.

Sickening. Just plain sickening.
It wasn’t all that long ago that the fake liberals were screaming about how the Electoral College was set up by slave owners to keep the black man down and thwart democracy in favor of the ruling class. Now they squeal to the EC voters to please “save us”… by thwarting democracy in favor of the establishment that backed and supported Hillary Clinton’s presidency.
Just plain sickening.
“Dear Electors, There will be no peace on earth unless you refuse the one accused of treason and vote for Hillary Clinton instead,” said a holiday letter sent to Oklahoma Republican elector Charles Potts, which he posted on his Facebook page over the weekend.’ Washington Post Dec. 19th
“The Electoral College is an embarrassment to our nation, and not just because it subverts the will of the voting majority. The Electoral College was designed to protect an evil American institution, slavery.” Fusion.net Nov. 10th
People who believe the EC is there to protect the “evil” institutions from the will of the people are begging it’s voters to cast out the verified election results and install a lying, corrupt, war-mongering criminal who is on the record of being on the payroll of the Big Banks… the real modern day slave owners.
Sickening and pathetic.

—“We shall reach our goal, when we have the power to laugh as we destroy, as we smash, whatever was sacred to us as tradition...” Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945
Ha. Ha. Ha. Saturday Night Live, which hasn’t been funny for two decades now, is “jokingly” calling for Electoral College voters to cast aside election results and subvert our democracy.
Ha. Ha. Ha. Aren’t they funny?
It seems like a year ago when I wrote Jill Stein’s recount effort was really about keeping 3 key states from finalizing their election totals so their Electoral College voters couldn’t cast their votes for Donald Trump today, Dec. 19th, 2016. But it was only two weeks ago.
From the very first day Stein announced her recount bid I have been pointing out that it was all about changing the results of the election because certain interested parties believe the people voted the wrong way.
Now that her effort is over, the REAL election integrity movement has been dealt a serious blow to their credibility and the ONLY thing that remains from her efforts is the baseless accusation about Russia influencing the elections.
On Dec. 13th I wrote about John Podesta’s “plan B”. His efforts with Dr. Stein failed miserably so he got together with a number of congress-critters and devoted Hillarybot Electoral College voters and he tried a different ploy to stop them from voting Trump into office today. They wanted the EC to postpone the vote until Obama’s lying CIA chief, John Brennan, could go before them and lay out his web of lies about “Russian hacking” in hopes they would all refuse to vote for Donald Trump and elect Hillary Clinton instead.
That would make Hillary Clinton the first female president of the United States and the first candidate, male or female, to lose BOTH their party’s nomination (Bernie actually won it and the Clinton team stole it from him) as well as the general election and STILL end up in the Oval Office.
Just for shit’s and giggles… currently the CIA, without a single shred of evidence, are the MAIN driver of the “Russians hacked our election” story. But does anyone remember this:
“After being briefed on the CIA Inspector General report today, I have no choice but to call for the resignation of CIA Director John Brennan,” Udall said in a statement. “The CIA unconstitutionally spied on Congress by hacking into Senate Intelligence Committee computers. This grave misconduct not only is illegal, but it violates the U.S. Constitution’s requirement of separation of powers. These offenses, along with other errors in judgment by some at the CIA, demonstrate a tremendous failure of leadership, and there must be consequences.” Igor Bobic
At the time of the initial inquiry, lying CIA Director Brennan said the accusations about the agency snooping around in congressional systems was absurd and “beyond the scope of reason in terms of what we would do.”
A short time later:
“The CIA admitted to senators this week that the agency improperly snooped through congressional computers, backtracking from agency Director John O. Brennan’s vehement denials earlier this year and further denting the embattled intelligence community’s credibility with Congress…
This week, he had to retreat and apologize to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.” New York Times, 2014
I know that we have been told that the “leaks” from the DNC, Hillary’s email server and John Podesta’s emails all came from insiders but I seriously doubt that. My guess is, the Clinton emails came from a back-up laptop that was made by Hillary’s server company at her request and it eventually fell into the hands of Anthony Weiner which he then used as leverage in his ongoing criminal investigations and that the other two were quite probably the result of U.S. intelligence hacks that were fed to various sources in support of a future pro-fascist Trump regime (which is certainly taking shape as we speak)
Be that as it may, the CIA’s proven liar-in-chief, John Brennan, has no moral authority to point the finger at ANYONE for hacking official government systems, much less the Russians.
Seems to me he might just be trying to cover-up their own actions with this ridiculous and baseless story.
It is unlikely that the current campaign to get U.S. EC voters to cast aside the election results and vote for Hillary will succeed. But that is not stopping them from trying their best to openly thwart our democratic system.
What is that I said?
Isn’t that what they are accusing Russia of doing? Trying to thwart our democracy?
Why yes it is. It’s the EXACT same thing they are doing in every way possible.
They tried doing just that with the help of Dr. Jill Stein. They tried doing it with a ridiculous online petition. And they tried to do it with lying Brennan’s “the Russians hacked us” fib.
And they are also trying a last ditch hail Mary propaganda effort from good old Saturday Night Live.
SNL has been anti-Trump and pro-Hillary for a long time now. They fed their audience a steady stream of “humorous” anti-Trump propaganda for months in the lead-up to the election in hopes they could normalize hatred for him and his supporters through humor.
This little propaganda of theirs couldn’t even be written into a coherent skit so they just took all of their talking points and wrote them on cue cards for “Hillary” to show a EC voter outside her door on the eve of the vote. Everything is in there: Russians stole election from Hillary, Trump will kill us all, Trump pissing off Chinese, Trump Tweets, Trump and women, Trump and immigrants, Trump and blacks, Trump and conflicts of interest… it’s all there and all provided with a lovely laugh track to take the edge off and make it seem like entertainment instead of a blatant and desperate attempt at subverting democracy here in the United States.
SNL is trying to make their audience laugh at the idea of smashing one of our most sacred traditions. Isn’t that interesting? I know it’s not funny. I wonder how the audience really received it, minus the laugh track.
Again, I seriously doubt they are able to convince enough voters to join up with them in their efforts to destabilize our election system like they have in so many other countries across the globe.
Here’s a little refresher course:
Though compelling, that list fails to get into the Clinton, Bush II and Obama regimes which have been steadily thwarting democracy across the globe with stunning regularity and transparency. Yugoslavia, Mexico, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Ukraine, Thailand, Honduras, Venezuela, Brazil and Egypt come to mind with the ongoing efforts by President Peace Prize in Syria of course.
A long, long, long history of the masters of the universe using our nation to impose their will on the peoples of the world, wouldn’t you say? And now we see the chickens really do come home to roost.
While everyone points a finger and scowls at Vladamir Putin, the powers that be are doing everything they can to undermine the core tenant of our constitutional republic: the vote.
It isn’t subtle and it isn’t funny. It’s obvious and pathetic and pathological in my opinion.
For those of you who are regulars here, you know I am no fan of Donald Trump or our rigged election system for that matter. But I do respect the will of the people and in this case, they voted for a neoliberal clown billionaire captain of industry and that is exactly what they should get. Teach ’em a lesson as it were.
Today’s EC vote, I predict, will see some betray the will of the citizens they represent, but not enough to turn the vote Hillary’s way.
And when that is done, I can only shutter to think what they will try next to subvert our democratic system and install that criminal, lying, corrupt neoliberal witch in the Oval Office.
I wonder how long it will be before SNL does a “funny” skit about some “ISIS” inspired loser shooting Donald Trump or maybe a “humorous” little scene about a bombing at the inauguration.
Who again was it that “hated us for our freedom”? I forget sometimes. Oh yeah, the guys we back in Syria.
Funny world ain’t it?

from 21st Century Wire (H/T Greg Bacon)
According to two reports coming out of Aleppo today, at least 14 US Coalition military officers were captured this morning in an East Aleppo bunker by Syrian Special Forces.
This story was quietly leaked by Voltaire.net, who announced, “The Security Council is sitting in private on Friday, December 16, 2016, at 17:00 GMT, while NATO officers were arrested this morning by the Syrian Special Forces in a bunker in East Aleppo.”
Fares Shehabi MP, a prominent Syrian Parliamentarian and head of Aleppo’s Chamber of Commerce published the names of the Coalition officers on his Facebook page on the 15th December (emphasis added):
Mutaz Kanoğlu – Turkey
David Scott Winer – USA
David Shlomo Aram – Israel
Muhamad Tamimi – Qatar
Muhamad Ahmad Assabian – Saudi
Abd-el-Menham Fahd al Harij – Saudi
Islam Salam Ezzahran Al Hajlan – Saudi
Ahmed Ben Naoufel Al Darij – Saudi
Muhamad Hassan Al Sabihi – Saudi
Hamad Fahad Al Dousri – Saudi
Amjad Qassem Al Tiraoui – Jordan
Qassem Saad Al Shamry – Saudi
Ayman Qassem Al Thahalbi – Saudi
Mohamed Ech-Chafihi El Idrissi – Moroccan
Listen to Fares Shehabi’s interview on the Sunday Wire radio show: ‘Liberation Aleppo‘
In addition to Voltaire.net, the other original report was provided by Damascus-based Syrian journalist Said Hilal Alcharifi. According to Alcharifi, captured “NATO” officers were from a number of member states including the US, France, Germany and Turkey, as well as Israel. Here is his statement (translated from French):
“Thanks to information received, Syrian authorities discovered the headquarters of high ranking western/NATO officers in the basement of an area in East Aleppo and have captured them alive. Some names have already been given to Syrian journalists, myself included. The nationalities are US, French, British, German, Israeli, Turkish, Saudi, Moroccan, Qatari etc. In light of their nationalities and their rank, I assure you that the Syrian government have a very important catch, which should enable them to direct negotiations with the countries that have tried to destroy them.”

Several people were killed and injured as a result of a blast near a university in the Turkish city of Kayseri, Reuters reported citing security sources.
The explosion hit the bus reportedly carrying civilians and off-duty soldiers. The bus was allegedly hit near a bus stop at the campus of Erciyes university in Kayseri as it drove by a car laden with explosives, local media reports.
Media reported of 13 people killed and 48 wounded by the blast, citing Turkish military.
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus confirmed casualties and stated that the explosion was a car bomb, which targeted bus carrying soldiers. He also noted that it resembles the attack outside a soccer stadium in Istanbul last week.

“…neoliberalism became the “elevation of the market to an almost theological status.” Scott Sumner
Donald Trump has called this a “revolution”. He’s called it a “movement” in the past. His election to office on a neoliberal platform. This is nothing new. Trump is giving voice to a feeling held by the Washington Consensus for decades. But it’s a counter revolution, aimed as resetting the United States back to the way things were during the Gilded Age of the Industrial Revolution before things like the New Deal and the Great Society ruined everything for Big Business tycoons like… Donald Trump.
His openly fascist cabinet picks, gleaned from what Trump considers the captains of industry and banking sectors, expose the lie of Trump’s candidacy. In the run-up to the election, Trump gained ground over his overtly neoliberal competition by pandering to his crowds saying he would protect Social Security and Medicare while closing the borders to the coveted cheap labor Big Business depends on for their excessive profit margins these days. While giving key positions to rabid war-mongers like his Sec. of Defense pick, Trump continues to pretend to be an anti-interventionist.
Today it has been made public that Donald Trump has chosen the son of the chosen one, Milton Friedman, to be his representative to the nation of God’s “chosen people”. “King” David Friedman is headed to Israel.
“President-elect Donald Trump will nominate bankruptcy attorney David Friedman as U.S. ambassador to Israel and Friedman said he looked forward to taking up his post in Jerusalem, a step that would reverse decades of U.S. foreign policy and spark rancor in the Muslim world.
The U.S. embassy has been located in Tel Aviv for more than 68 years. Trump had pledged during the presidential campaign to move it to Jerusalem, a move almost certain to provoke objections from Muslims around the world.” Huffington Post
David Friedman is the son of Milton Friedman, father of America’s version of neoliberalism which is the core of libertarianism, what was sold as an alternative economic ideology to people long opposed to the failing Washington Consensus. It isn’t by the way. It’s the same thing.
Making that point perfectly is this thing called David Friedman.
David Director Friedman (born February 12, 1945) is an American economist, physicist, legal scholar, and libertarian theorist. He is known for his textbook writings on microeconomics and the libertarian theory of anarcho-capitalism, which is the subject of his most popular book, The Machinery of Freedom.
David Friedman is the son of economists Rose and Milton Friedman. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University in 1965, with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and physics. He later earned a master’s (1967) and a Ph.D. (1971) in theoretical physics from the University of Chicago. Despite his later career, he never took a class for credit in either economics or law.
In his book The Machinery of Freedom (1973), Friedman sketched a form of anarcho-capitalism where all goods and services including law itself can be produced by the free market. This differs from the version proposed by Murray Rothbard, where a legal code would first be consented to by the parties involved in setting up the anarcho-capitalist society. Friedman advocates an incrementalist approach to achieve anarcho-capitalism by gradual privatization of areas that government is involved in, ultimately privatizing law and order itself. In the book, he states his opposition to violent anarcho-capitalist revolution.
This man is such an ideologue he actually advocates the privatization of not only law enforcement and the court system, but also of congress itself. Notice how he supports the incrementalism approach to turning our nation into the pristine fascist state he and his fellow free market zealots dream of.
Someone left me a comment yesterday talking about how I miss the point regarding the threat of Big Gubmint and the inherent freedom of choice we are given by the glorious corporations and the ideology of the free markets. His point was that with Big Gubmint, we have no choice, while all these companies taking over so many aspects of our lives (like the surveillance state for example) give us the opportunity to “opt out” so to speak. Ergo, to him, that is a better choice for us.
He concluded with the statement: “IMO, our efforts are best aimed at reducing the size and power of the State.”
To that end I would say he’s in pretty well established company. Bill Clinton was a HUGE proponent of smaller government back in the day and his efforts as president stand as testimony to that fact. So was G.H.W. Bush, a CIA man who with all likelihood helped plan and carry out the assassination of one US president and the shooting of another. The Zionist neocons also adhere to the “smaller Gubmint” ideology. Donald Rumsfeld announce just such a plan on Sept. 10th, 2001, before he hid in a secured area of the Pentagon waiting for a drone to crash into the office doing the research looking for the 2.3 trillion dollars Big Business stole from the Department of Defense. President Obama did everything he could to privatize the Department of Education on his watch and as I have written about in the past and will write about again later this week, he did as much as he could with his “compromise” plans to bring crippling neoliberal austery measures to America including a move to undermine the stability of Social Security for the coming privatization of that Big Gubmint program as well.
All of their efforts, Aaron, have been to “reduce the size and the power of the State” and Aaron, I am proudly opposed to the economic ideology of folks like Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Donald Rumsfeld, Milton Freidman, Dick Cheney, George H. W. Bush, the neocons from the Project of the New American Century, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the American Legislative and Exchange Commission, the corporate Dems who took over the Democrat Party, the cabal of international banksters I call the “masters of the universe” and of course… Donald Trump.
Not only am I PROUD I oppose their fanatical economic ideology of neo-feudalism, its the CORE of what I have been doing on this website for the past nine and a half years and I will not stop.
Back to David Freidman..
This guy is such a cliche when it comes to wanting to return to the days of kings, serfs and fiefdoms, he actually spends a great deal of time play-acting at it, even calling himself a “king” of course.
Friedman is a longtime member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, where he is known as Duke Cariadoc of the Bow. He is known throughout the worldwide society for his articles on the philosophy of recreationism and practical historical recreations, especially those relating to the medieval Middle East. His work is compiled in the popular Cariadoc’s Miscellany. He is sometimes credited with founding the largest and longest-running SCA event, the Pennsic War; as king of the Middle Kingdom he challenged the East Kingdom, and later as king of the East accepted the challenge…and lost.
On the subject of Israel, “King” Friedman is a Zionist zealot who believes Israel should just get on with it and annex the whole of the West Bank and quit pretending there will ever be a two-state solution.
He’s been serving as Trump’s advisor to Israel for the past 8 months or so and penned a little screed of a press statement with Jason Greenblatt just prior to the election.
“… The U.S. should veto any United Nations votes that unfairly single out Israel and will work in international institutions and forums, including in our relations with the European Union, to oppose efforts to delegitimize Israel, impose discriminatory double standards against Israel, or to impose special labeling requirements on Israeli products or boycotts on Israeli goods…
The U.S. should cut off funds for the UN Human Rights Council…
The U.S. should view the effort to boycott, divest from, and sanction (BDS) Israel as inherently anti-Semitic and take strong measures, both diplomatic and legislative, to thwart actions that are intended to limit commercial relations with Israel…
The false notion that Israel is an occupier should be rejected…
A two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians appears impossible…
Any solutions imposed on Israel by outside parties including by the United Nations Security Council, should be opposed…
Pressure should not be put on Israel to withdraw to borders that make attacks and conflict more likely…
The U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the eternal and indivisible capital of the Jewish state and Mr. Trump’s Administration will move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.” David Friedman
Trump’s man in Israel, “King” David, is an abject neoliberal Zionist zealot who’s ideas of a “unified” Jerusalem fly in the face of not only common sense but also flouts international law as Zionist zealots often do.
“East Jerusalem is occupied territory. Therefore, it is subject, as is the rest of the West Bank, to the provisions of international humanitarian law that relate to occupied territory. The annexation of East Jerusalem breaches international law, which prohibits unilateral annexation. For this reason, the international community, including the United States, does not recognize the annexation of East Jerusalem.” B’Tselem
The international community regards East Jerusalem as part of Palestine as per resolution 181 (II) of 29 November 1947. Since their illegal annexation of it in 1967, Zionists has been saying a “unified” Jerusalem is the real capitol of Israel.
This insult is designed to further demoralize the Palestinian people and delegitimize their statehood. In short, they are literally trying to wipe Palestine of the map.
East Jerusalem is also the location of the Dome of the Rock which Zionists wish to tear down so they can build the Third Temple, thus signifying their ultimate victory over the Palestinians and the Muslims and some Evangelical Christian zealots consider rebuilding of the Temple to be a prerequisite to Armageddon and the Second Coming of Christ. All that lovely endtimes stuff don’t ya know.
So Trump has gifted “King” David a throne in the Holy Land. He’s a neoliberal zealot who wishes to slowly but surely privatize everything to do with Big Gubmint including cops, courts and even congress. And he wants Big Gubmint to stop folks from exposing the crimes of Israel, to oppose international law on behalf of his Likudnik friends in Tel Aviv and hasten the demolition of one of the holiest sites in all the Muslim world, replacing it with a new Jewish temple, one which foretells the end of days.
Yeah. Trump is “CHANGE” alright. “CHANGE” back to the good old days of the Knights of Malta, the rule of the East India Trading Company, mercantilism and glorious crusades to the Holy-land of Israel.
There’s your “revolution” folks. Now that Obama has done away with as habeas corpus The Donald and his aides like “King” David are working diligently to do away with the rest of Magna Carta and our constitution along with it.
It’s glorious days ahead for the Ayn Rand crowd isn’t it. Glorious days indeed.
To that end, here’s a little found footage of what life was like and will be like again once the scurge of Big Gubmint is replaced incrementally, by the “liberty” of all those deregulated Big Businesses and the captains of industry who own them.
I’m taking the rest of day to work on legal matters. See you tomorrow.
