‘WELL… NO SH*T… SHERLOCK’!!!’ ~ Jonathan Cook: “Biden OR Trump Means Four More Years Of Cheerleading For Israel”

“Joe Biden, the Democratic party challenger to Trump, recently said he had no intention of returning the US embassy to Tel Aviv should he win. It is simply astonishing that, weeks away from the election, Palestinian-American activists still doubt whether a President Biden would be a notable improvement on Israel-Palestine issues. Trump’s record has been dire for Palestinians well beyond the embassy move. He appointed a US ambassador, David Friedman, who cheerleads the most extreme elements among Israel’s settlers. His administration has indulged a free-for-all in illegal settlement building. Trump has ended US aid to the United Nations agency responsible for helping millions of Palestinians made refugees by Israel’s decades of ethnic cleansing policies. But rather than repudiate his opponent’s record, Biden has sought to outcompete Trump for the title of most unwavering, uncritical supporter of Israel. Even when Biden served as vice-president in Barack Obama’s administration, Biden boasted that he worked from within for Israel’s interests.”

~Jonathan Cook

It was not for symbolic or sentimental reasons that Sheldon Adelson, a United States casino magnate and close ally of Israeli prime minster Benjamin Netanyahu, quietly bought the American ambassador’s official residence in Tel Aviv this month.

Adelson is one of the main Republican donors to President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign. He was also widely seen as the driving force behind Trump’s decision two years ago to break a decades-old policy and relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The embassy move — violating a long-standing international consensus — served as implicit US recognition of Israel’s illegal annexation of Jerusalem, voiding future peace negotiations for a viable Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Now Adelson is grabbing for himself the ambassador’s former residence near Tel Aviv before the US presidential election in November. It is his way of ensuring that, if Trump loses, there will be no reversal of the embassy decision.

But in truth, the 87-year-old Adelson could have saved his money.

Joe Biden, the Democratic party challenger to Trump, recently said he had no intention of returning the US embassy to Tel Aviv should he win.

It is simply astonishing that, weeks away from the election, Palestinian-American activists still doubt whether a President Biden would be a notable improvement on Israel-Palestine issues.

Trump’s record has been dire for Palestinians well beyond the embassy move. He appointed a US ambassador, David Friedman, who cheerleads the most extreme elements among Israel’s settlers. His administration has indulged a free-for-all in illegal settlement building.

Trump has ended US aid to the United Nations agency responsible for helping millions of Palestinians made refugees by Israel’s decades of ethnic cleansing policies.

And early this year he published a so-called “peace” plan that permitted Israel to annex swaths of Palestinian territory in the West Bank, the backbone of any future Palestinian state. That move was put on temporary hold after Israel signed an accord with the UAE and Bahrain last week.

But rather than repudiate his opponent’s record, Biden has sought to outcompete Trump for the title of most unwavering, uncritical supporter of Israel. His officials have plenty of evidence from Biden’s half-century at the top of US politics.

Even when Biden served as vice-president in Barack Obama’s administration, Biden boasted that he worked from within for Israel’s interests. He has taken credit for securing an “unprecedented” $38 billion, 10-year military aid package in 2016.

Biden reportedly intervened personally in the drafting of the Democratic platform to make sure there was no mention of Israel’s five-decade military “occupation” or any recognition of Palestinian rights in Jerusalem.

He has called resistance to Israel’s belligerent occupation a Palestinian “choice”. And he has echoed Netanyahu’s malicious talking point that Palestinians must recognise Israel as a specifically Jewish state. That would undermine the rights of a fifth of Israel’s population who are Palestinian, as well as pre-empting a right of Palestinian return enshrined in international law.

Biden’s vice-president, Kamala Harris, is equally enamoured with Israel. Last year she rejected a New York Times interviewer’s suggestion that Israel might have a poor human rights record.

Biden cannot even take credit for the one bright spot in his platform: his opposition to annexation. His stance appears to reflect not principle or respect for international law, but a keen awareness of what the biggest donors bankrolling his campaign want.

A number of Jewish organisations in the US — at the core of the Israel lobby — have for once broken ranks with Mr Netanyahu. They fear annexation would make Israel’s apartheid-like rule over Palestinians much more visible and rouse greater public opposition to Israel.

But even then, Biden has denounced as “outrageous” Democratic party activists’ demand to condition aid to Israel on its not using the money to advance annexation or abuse Palestinians.

Without factoring in big donors who otherwise stand four-square behind Israel, it is hard to make sense of how Biden and the Democratic party establishment are quite so out of step with their own activists, as well as Democratic voters and even American Jews.

A July poll found that 67 per cent of Americans thought their lawmakers should question the Israel-US relationship, rising to 81 per cent of Democrats.

Last year two-thirds of Democratic voters said they wanted military aid to Israel conditioned on respecting human rights, with only 11 per cent opposed. Some 45 per cent of all Americans feel the same, with 34 per cent opposed.

Changing attitudes to Israel are reflective of a more general progressive shift on a range of issues among the Democratic base — in part spurred by four years of Trump.

That was underscored by a surge of support for Bernie Sanders, the figurehead of a progressive insurgency inside the party, during the 2016 and 2020 primary campaigns.

In recent congressional elections, as well as primaries for safe Democratic seats, there has been a series of surprise wins by unknown progressives. They have ousted veteran incumbents, often heavily supported by the Israel lobby.

Notably over the summer, Jamaal Bowman, a critic of Israel, won the primary for the New York district of Eliot Engel, chair of the mighty House foreign affairs committee and one of Israel’s staunchest supporters in Congress.

Cori Bush dislodged William Lacy Clay, a 10-term Missouri representative, even after he highlighted her support for boycotting Israel.

And despite channelling millions to its chosen candidate, the Israel lobby failed to oust Ilhan Omar, who in her first two years has become the most vocal critic of Israel seen in Congress.

Omar was at the forefront of a legislative bid — opposed by Biden — to protect the First Amendment rights of Americans to promote a boycott of Israel, currently violated by more than half of all states.

Biden is increasingly out of step even with the attitudes of American Jews.

A poll in July showed that a quarter of them saw Israel in the most critical light possible — as a colonial, racist or apartheid state. More than half would either vote for a candidate like Omar or consider doing so. Among young Jews the numbers are likely to be far higher.

Biden, at 77, represents the Democratic party’s old guard, beholden to powerful donors. Israel is one particularly stark illustration of how, unless the party adapts to new, more principled thinking, it is heading towards a war with the grassroots that could tear it apart.

LYUDMILA PUTIN: “My Husband Has Been Dead For A Long Time” — Did The CIA (Central Israeli Agency) Kill Vladimir Putin And Replace Him With This ‘Chabad-Lubavitz’ Supremacy Cult Clone?

Vladimir Putin was killed in a plot by the CIA and MI6 and replaced with a body double who still leads Russia, according to astonishing claims. Theorists claim dramatic changes in Putin’s appearance, apparent inconsistencies in his ability to speak German, and a divorce from his wife are all proof the Russian President is not the real Vlad. Astonishing claims circulated online — and explored in YouTube videos viewed hundreds of thousands of times and dozens of blogs and articles — assert the current Putin is a double most likely under the control of the CIA. An article circulated online — originally published in a German newspaper in 2015 — features strange quotes attributed to Lyudmila Putin which seems to support the theory of the death of Vlad: ”Unfortunately, my husband has been dead for a long time. They told me only one thing: ‘If you want to live, be silent.’ I have to admit this publicly, because I can no longer see what is happening on his behalf. I am afraid that now they will kill me and my daughters just as they killed him. These are terrible people. They will stop at nothing. People, come to your senses!

If you do not stop being cowardly and ignore what is happening in the country, you will not live.

~Lyudmila Putin

 

Vladimir Putin was killed in a plot by the CIA and MI6 and replaced with a body double who still leads Russia, according to astonishing claims.

Putin has remained a thorn in the side of the West as he made it his mission to return Russia to glory — first being made President back in 1999.

But the current Vlad — who recently boasted Russia is now the most powerful country in the world — could actually be a doppleganger, according to conspiracy theories.

Theorists claim dramatic changes in Putin’s appearance, apparent inconsistencies in his ability to speak German, and a divorce from his wife are all proof the Russian President is not the real Vlad.

Astonishing claims circulated online — and explored in YouTube videos viewed hundreds of thousands of times and dozens of blogs and articles — assert the current Putin is a double most likely under the control of the CIA.

Claims about when he was replaced vary — with some saying he was poisoned in the halls of the Kremlin after annexing Crimea in 2014.

While other says he was quietly replaced in a secret coup in 2015 when Vlad mysteriously was not seen in public for 10 days between March 5 and March 15.

An article circulated online — originally published in a German newspaper in 2015 — features strange quotes attributed to Lyudmila Putin which seems to support the theory of the death of Vlad:

”My husband, unfortunately, has long been dead. I have to admit it publicly, because I could no longer see what is happening on his behalf. These are terrible people.”

Conspiracy theorist Scrivener claims “the one person who could expose the fake very conveniently disappeared” when referring to Putin’s divorce in April 2014.

Scrivener — who also claims Abraham Lincoln’s murder was an inside job — goes on to claim Putin’s ability to speak German has also changed.

Putin famously speaks fluent German and studied the language as a youth at Saint Petersburg High School.

But images in 2014 showed him appearing to be using an interpreter while at a press conference with German chancellor Angela Merkel.

Putin is wearing an earpiece in pictures, suggesting he is listening to a translation — something he would not need to do if he could speak German.

He said the new Putin has a his “head rounder, nose fatter and shorter, dimple missing, lips thicker, mouth larger and a serious double chin”.

Pictures of Putin in his youth do show a dramatic shift in his appearance.

But there are also reports Vlad has at some point had plastic surgery — however conspiracy theorists argue this could just be a cover.

His notorious disappearances are written off by most as problems with sickness.

Rumours of Putin’s demise in 2016 were written off by the Kremlin as him responding to the “international situation”.

Lyudmila Putin’s Testimony: Interview Transcript Reveals Vladimir Putin Is Dead

The German newspaper Die Welt published a sensational interview with the former wife of the President of Russia, Lyudmila Putin. Here is the full transcript of her testimony:

 

Unfortunately, my husband has been dead for a long time. I have to admit this publicly, because I can no longer see what is happening on his behalf. These are terrible people. They will stop at nothing. I am afraid that now they will kill me and my daughters just as they killed him.

Our family was not perfect. When I got married, I was in love with an intelligence officer. But the reality turned out to be completely different. Putin turned out to be a mean, cruel man, a tyrant. He never reckoned with me, he simply did not notice my existence. He needed me only for information about the composition of the family and as a mother for his children. It’s hard for me to talk about it, but Putin beat me, humiliated me, mocked me. Life with him was torture.

I tried to fight, more than once I was going to file for divorce. But for this man there was nothing sacred. To silence me, he took me to a psychiatric clinic. I went through all the circles of hell. Drugs, psychotropic substances, bullying. For a long time I was locked in an isolation ward and I did not see sunlight for a long time, did not see people. I still remember this with a shudder. From a young and self-confident woman, I turned into a shadow, my will was broken, I agreed to all conditions, just to get out of there.

But what began after his death defies description at all.

He then had a difficult period. Of course, he did not tell me anything, he became even more withdrawn. A month before his death, at night, without warning, I took my daughters out — I didn’t even know where.

And then he completely disappeared. At night some people came to our house — I knew some of them, I saw some for the first time. They dug everything upside down, reviewed all the papers, knocked on all the walls in the house. They told me only one thing: “If you want to live, be silent.” All questions about my husband were briefly answered that he would come soon, that he had an important visiting conference and that in the interests of national security I should not discuss this with anyone. A few days later, his first body double appeared. Later I found out that the murder of Vladimir was being prepared ahead of time, he was eliminated when the first double was almost ready to take his place. Outwardly, of course, he was very similar to Putin — I was amazed. But this was a completely different person.

They somehow managed to track down the girls. And I was given an ultimatum — either I play the role of a devoted wife, or neither I nor my daughters will live anymore. I had no choice. I have tried to avoid public events before. The corrosive attention of journalists, intrigue and gossip — all this disgusts me. But pretending to be the wife of a stranger to me was even more terrifying.

Therefore, they prepared a double for me too — so that when I said something not as planned according to the script, to smooth out the embarrassment. If they had time to bring my double to a more or less successful resemblance, they would have killed me long ago.

Miraculously, we managed to escape. For obvious reasons, I cannot name the people who helped us to stop this terrible staging and hide. Divorce was my deliverance. Now I live abroad, I am doing well. But I am scared to see what is happening with Russia.

People, come to your senses! You live like beggars, you can hardly make ends meet, because you are mercilessly robbed and deceived. And now the question is about the survival of the indigenous people of Russia. If you do not stop being cowardly and ignore what is happening in the country, you will not live.

RYAN CRISTIAN featuring ROBERT INLAKESH: “Israel Illegally Attacks Gaza, Syria & Lebanon With Deadly Impunity”

Today I am joined again by independent investigative journalist Robert Inlakesh to discuss the utterly incomprehensible silence from the entirety of MSM in regard to the ongoing attacks by Israel’s government on numerous sovereign nations, during this COVID-19 event no less. In each case, we see civilians being killed, we see rights being violated, and we see the absence of outcry or concern from the most outspoken groups pretending to fight for oppressed peoples around the world, namely the US government. All while not a single Israeli is harmed, civilian or otherwise, despite its defense being used as the broad undefined justification for all the carnage taking place.

‘WAR ON TERROR’ EASY AS 1-2-3 ~ Caitlin Johnstone on “The Greatest Scam Ever Invented”

“There is simply no doubt whatsoever that the ‘War On Terror‘ does the exact opposite of what it purports to do in every conceivable way.  This is an utterly and indisputably established fact.  Perhaps the single greatest scam ever devised is the way the U.S. centralized empire found that it can kill and displace people in geostrategically crucial and resource-rich regions under the guise of fighting terrorism, then when violence and extremism inevitably arises out of that mass-scale trauma they can use it to justify even more interventionism under the guise of fighting terrorism.  It’s an endless self-reinforcing positive feedback loop of violence, and it enables imperialist forces to move ever more troops, bases and war machinery into the areas they need to lock down to help them choke off nations that disobey them.  So why does it continue, then?  Why is this mass-scale project of intervention and occupation not just continuing but actually escalating, despite the fact that we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that all it does is create more misery, displacement and terrorism?  Easy: because that’s exactly what it’s designed to do.  Step 1: Destroy nations and displace tens of millions of people.  Step 2: Wait for some of those people to hate you and want to fight back.  Step 3: Use their desire to fight back as justification to repeat Step 1.  And the oil keeps flowing.  And the money keeps stacking.  And the beat goes on.  We are ruled by monsters.”

Tens Of Millions Of People Displaced By The ‘War On Terror’, The Greatest Scam Ever Invented

LISA RENEE: “Information Warfare”

“We live in a world run by manipulators, master manipulators who preconceive expert level mind control strategies that the common person would never think of in casual conversation. Psychological Manipulation through means of propaganda and Information Warfare was once limited within the scope of the Controller Pillars of Society, via countries, states, militaries, and intelligence agencies. Aggressive battles over access to information and the shaping of narratives have become an integral part of shaping societal views and the public’s perception of the nature of reality, which includes current war agendas and global-economic politics. The explosive terrain of the wild west in all forms of media has contributed to unprecedented levels of perpetrating psychological manipulation and information warfare that is associated to a variety of conspiracies, disinformation, Mind Control agendas and cyber hacks. If all we have access to in the mainstream news and entertainment is being produced at a child’s level, what kind of impact does that have on significantly lowering literacy levels and human intelligence? How many times have you watched something in the media, and comment, did a 10 year old boy write the script for this? When everyday people are willing to become investigative journalists on behalf of finding the truth, they blow past mainstream media border guards of the matrix.”

~Lisa Renee

 

Psychological Manipulation through means of propaganda and Information Warfare was once limited within the scope of the Controller Pillars of Society, via countries, states, militaries, and intelligence agencies. Today, even everyday people have become important players in these media campaigns involving access to credible and high quality information or straight out disinformation campaigns in this new media landscape. Aggressive battles over access to information and the shaping of narratives have become an integral part of shaping societal views and the public’s perception of the nature of reality, which includes current war agendas and global-economic politics. During the Ascension Cycle, the Collective Consciousness moves towards Open Source systems in which to gain more access to information, truth and knowledge, that which had been previously unseen and remained hidden from the ordinary citizens.

The explosive terrain of the wild west in all forms of media has contributed to unprecedented levels of perpetrating psychological manipulation and information warfare that is associated to a variety of conspiracies, disinformation, Mind Control agendas and cyber hacks. Simultaneously, it has given a forum for those people who are truth activists, those dedicated to investigating factual evidence and disseminating layers of the news in order to gain more truth about the larger picture and then share it with many others. When everyday people are willing to become investigative journalists on behalf of finding the truth, they blow past mainstream media border guards of the matrix. Those who have been marginalized and disadvantaged from getting their message out, are able to have a voice in the shifting paradigm. Thus, humanity benefits from the sense of personal emotional connection and human authenticity which is present in everyday people getting their message out and telling their stories. Many messages and stories that were previously completely ignored by mainstream media, such as child trafficking and pedophilia, are now being heard.

However, media saturation and the constant use of psychological manipulation tactics means we must use high quality discernment, and be willing to use critical thinking when considering sources of information and their potential agendas. We live in a world run by manipulators, master manipulators who preconceive expert level mind control strategies that the common person would never think of in casual conversation. By advancing the interests of the manipulator, often at another’s expense, these methods could be considered as exploitative, abusive, devious, and deceptive. And yet, we live in a controlled reality where this level of intentional manipulation to prevent access to valid, credible information is used every day to generate as much confusion as possible, in the minds of the public. Sun Tzu, a Chinese Military Strategist originally said the best victory in warfare is the one in which you never have to fight your enemy in actual combat, instead to subdue them through Psychological Warfare.

Psychological Manipulation is a type of social influence that aims to change the behavior or perception of others through abusive, deceptive, or underhanded tactics, usually through the intentional spreading of disinformation and confusion via information warfare. Information warfare is a concept involving the agenda to achieve certain goals through the management of information and communication technology in pursuit of gaining the competitive advantage over an opponent. Information warfare may involve the collection of tactical information, along with the assurances that one’s own information is valid, in order to spread propaganda or disinformation to demoralize or manipulate the public or perceived enemy. The intent is to undermine the quality of accurate information available while denying access to information-collection opportunities to those whom are in the disadvantaged position, for whatever the reasons. Information Warfare is closely linked to psychological warfare, and these are two concepts are deeply enmeshed within the Controller agenda.

Thus, we should be made aware of the highly explosive environment of psychological manipulation and information warfare that we find ourselves today. It is important to understand the principles used to promote confusion in the minds of people, and to know that this is the primary goal for psychological manipulation. When we are confused from being fed disinformation, we cannot make informed and well thought out decisions. When we have a built a foundation for our life based upon layers upon layers of deception, we are confused and do not perceive reality accurately. This destroys our ability to gain clarity and build inner strength for ourselves. When we are confused, we are weakened and at a disadvantage. [1]

Mainstream Job is Disinformation

The job of mainstream media is not to inform, but to misinform the public, making it harder for people to make informed decisions about things that impact their own lives, and that of their families. Mass media is used to divert public attention from important issues and changes that are decided upon by the political and economic elites, through the technique of derailing important facts or information through the continuous flood of distractions, mindless entertainment and insignificant information. The controlled media and press have mandates to provide all news and related media content to be written or presented at no greater level than what a 12 year old child (or less) could understand. If all we have access to in the mainstream news and entertainment is being produced at a child’s level, what kind of impact does that have on significantly lowering literacy levels and human intelligence? How many times have you watched something in the media, and comment, did a 10 year old boy write the script for this?

We must look to identify how the monikers, memes, ridicule, public shaming and labels that are coined by the media are used to throw people off from accessing the truth or facts in the matter, and further to incite anger, fear and division in the public. Each side is separated to appear as the opposition, as it divides and designs victimizer archetypes to polarize people in enemy patterning, while it refuses to allow an intelligent or productive dialogue or recognize support for diverse opinions. No one is listening for the larger perspective, only crucifying any position or person that they do not agree with, when they know little to none of the facts. The mainstream media is paid hefty sums to incite division, aggression, character assassination, attack free speech and generate obfuscation and chaos at every turn. [2]
