The latest conjoining of the two is the ADL’s policy proposals to be included in the Democratic & Republican platforms.
Particularly pernicious and alarming is the ADL’s relentless targeting of the Internet.
Here is a Brave New ‘Zionist‘ World policy proposal the ADL wants on both party’s platforms:
“The ADL believes the US must mobilize government efforts to confront anti-Semitism and all forms of hatred and bigotry.
Anti-Semitic propaganda is disseminated throughout the world via the Internet.
The US must use inter-governmental forums to encourage legislative and judicial action to fight anti-Semitism and encourage the improvement of data collection of all anti-Semitic activities”Here.
The ADL’s persistent power in U.S. politics has been strangely unaffected by its history, probably because that history is so little known.
The Ilhan Omar debate should be shaped by at least two aspects of it.
The first is that the ADL has consistently sought to undermine the left, leveling a charge akin to dual loyalty: that the American left’s calls for redistribution of power, its solidarity with global movements, and its prioritization of people over states threaten the very concept of the state.
Indeed the ADL, in addition to its stated mission of shoring up U.S. support for Israel, is deeply loyal to the U.S. state.
The second is that the ADL has waged a long, vigorous, and successful campaign, alongside AIPAC, specifically to characterize Arab American political organizing as dual loyalty.
Already in the 1980s, in the wake of the first Intifada, I heard Israeli generals admitting in the open that ‘for the Palestinians to win all they need is to survive.’
Palestinian analysts have been commenting for years that ‘Israel may have many lethal bombs but the Palestinians have one bomb, the demographic bomb.’
I have repeatedly argued in my writings that Israel hasn’t won a single war since 1967.
Even when it won on the battlefield (like in 1973), it failed to achieve its military objectives.
Bizarrely enough, Israel’s greatest military victory in 1967 inflicted on the country some political, strategic and demographic problems that have made the future survival of the Jewish State in its current form an unrealistic scenario.
Like Ron Ben Yishai (yet way ahead of him), I have been arguing that Israel lives on borrowed time.
But Israel and the IDF are not alone.
The American, British and French armies, alongside NATO in general, are also incapable of winning wars.
The Soviet army was literally defeated in Afghanistan for the same reasons.
Modern armies do not win wars, they are good in spreading collateral damage. It may even be possible that modern armies are not supposed to win wars.
Their real task is to sustain the military-industrial complex by means of constant conflict.
A clash with Hamas, for instance, leads to a growing demand for the Israeli Iron Dome.
Britain, America and France launch one criminal war after the other, they never win but they clearly sustain the production of killing machines.
Russia actually won a war recently together with Iran. This translated immediately into weapon-buying.
But it goes further. Western armies are set to follow military objectives that are defined by democratically elected governments.
In the post-political era, the entire political class is disturbingly dysfunctional and totally unique in its inability to produce educated decisions, let alone set military objectives.
President Trump’s belligerent rants against Syria, Iran and North Korea are perfect examples of the above.
Trump threatens to launch wars as often as he changes his socks, but he never provides his generals with an adequate set of objectives.
Obama, Cameron and Sarkozy weren’t any better.
They didn’t manage to set the objectives for Libya’s invasion or any other criminal Neocon conflict they launched.
Interestingly enough, I allow myself to suggest that one of the only state leaders who is fully aware of the inability of modern armies to win wars is Benjamin Netanyahu.
The Israeli PM is aware of the fact that his army is weak and the Israelis are even weaker.
Unlike his predecessors, Netanyahu actually tries to avoid large-scale conflicts with Gaza, Syria or Hezbollah as much as he can.
Netanyahu is not a ‘lover of peace’ or a ‘humanist.’
He is happy to deploy snipers against civilians and ‘lets them’ shoot kids who get too close to the border.
Netanyahu sends drones to attack Iranian targets in Syria .
But he is very careful not to pull the region into a total war. Benjamin Netanyahu didn’t really need Ron Ben Yishai, he gathered many years ago that the IDF and Israeli society can’t win wars. He is buying time instead.
My battle for truth and freedom involves some expensive legal and security services. I hope that you will consider committing to a monthly donation in whatever amount you can give. Regular contributions will enable me to avoid being pushed against a wall and to stay on top of the endless harassment by Zionist operators attempting to silence me and others.
The Zionists were keeping the Palestinians under wraps from the international community and the general public until the Palestinians made themselves known threw Intifada. Before then hardly anyone knew there Palestinians and what was being done to them!
Last Friday, the State Department announced the nomination of James Cavallaro, a widely respected human rights attorney, to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.
But earlier this week, the State Department withdrew Cavallaro’s nomination after reports emerged that he had described Israel as an apartheid state and had criticized House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries’s close ties to AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
Defending the withdrawal of Cavallaro’s nomination, State Department spokesperson Ned Price said, “His statements clearly do not reflect U.S. policy.
They are not a reflection of what we believe, and they are inappropriate to say the least.”
The decision has sparked outrage within the human rights community.
Cavallaro joins us to explain that this move by the Biden administration is particularly troubling because the role he was nominated for does not have any authority over U.S.-Israel relations and is an independent position.
The Palestinians have begun to decolonize their minds away from the “peace process” and racist two-state solution and with their sumud, they have brought the arrogant Zionist regime in Palestine to its knees.
After the latest genocidal onslaught by apartheid Israel, some serious questions have been raised, once again, about the usefulness of resistance and whether the outcome of the war can, or cannot, be considered a victory for the Palestinian people.
Those same questions were raised in 2009, 2012, and 2014, when Israel launched massive attacks against Gaza, and even during the non-violent 2018 Great March of Return, when Palestinians marched towards the fence around the Strip and were shot and killed by Israeli snipers.
Some “liberals” resorted to the usual proclamations, blaming the “two sides of the conflict” – ie, the coloniser and the colonised, and concluding that Palestinians must stop launching rockets from Gaza.
Once again, we were being challenged by those same “neutral” voices about the very definition of resistance.
They fail to see, for ideological reasons, that resistance, broadly speaking, is not only the ability to fight back against a militarily more powerful oppressor, but also the ability to creatively resist the colonisation of one’s land.
They fail to understand peoples’ power, in our case, “sumud” (steadfastness), or even to see that it exists.
In other words, they accept Israel’s narrative, where there are “two sides of the conflict” with equal military power and moral standing.
They reject the reality that this is a Western-backed settler colonialist and apartheid project which the Palestinian people are resisting.
They also ignore all our moral “weapons”: that we are the natives of the land, that we have international law supporting our claims, that we have the moral high ground, and increasingly the support of international civil society, and others.
Edward Said once said that the intellectual is supposed to be, “someone who cannot easily be co-opted by governments or corporations, and whose raison d’etre is to represent all those people and issues that are routinely forgotten or swept under the rug.”
Those “liberal” voices that have been condemning Palestinian “violence” in the latest confrontation with apartheid Israel are anti-intellectual.
They refuse to see that Palestinians are able to be agents of change in their present and future.
They are ideologically unable to acknowledge Palestinian agency because they refuse to respect the will of the people as expressed in the popular support given to resistance in its various forms – in Gaza, the West Bank and the areas Israel occupied during its creation in 1948.
They are also unable to see the Palestinian victory over apartheid Israel in the recent events.
They side with the Israeli fascist, ruling class who believe they “won” because they killed a huge number of “terrorists”: 253 Palestinians, including 66 children, 39 women, and 17 elderly.
Yet, none of the so-called “objectives” of the Israeli war on Gaza – putting an end to the rocket fire from Gaza and destroying the tunnels used by the resistance fighters and obfuscating any form of unity between Jerusalem and Gaza – has been achieved.
Rockets are still being launched and the resistance movement proved to be strong enough to respond to the call to action by the Jerusalemites of Sheikh Jarrah who are facing imminent ethnically cleansing by Israel.
As one frustrated Israeli pilot, who bombed Gaza, said in an interview for the Israeli Channel 12: “I went on a mission to carry out air strikes with a feeling that destroying the towers is a way to vent frustration over what is happening to us and over the success of the groups in Gaza in kicking us…
We failed to stop the rocket fire and to harm the leadership of these groups, so we destroyed the towers.”
But more importantly, Gaza 2021 bust the carefully constructed and zealously defended myths that Israel has been promoting for decades: that it has the “most moral” army in the world; that its Iron Dome is invincible; and that the Palestinians are just “Arabs” that have no common identity and would give up their claim to the land once the old generations die out.
“With the establishment of a relationship of oppression, violence has already begun.
Never in history has violence been initiated by the oppressed. How could they be the initiators, if they themselves are the result of violence? …
There would be no oppressed had there been no prior situation of violence to establish their subjugation.
Violence is initiated by those who oppress, who exploit, who fail to recognize others as persons -not by those who are oppressed, exploited, and unrecognized.”
It is apparent to all but the Western liberals and the Israeli elite they support that the Palestinians have emerged from protests across historic Palestine and the onslaught in Gaza victorious.
These events put an end to the infamous “deal of the century” by re-affirming that Palestinians will not give up their claim on Jerusalem, put another nail in the coffin of the fictional two-state solution, and brought liberation and the rights of third-class Palestinian citizens of Israel and five million refugees back to the top of the international community’s agenda.
They have also brought to the fore a new Palestinian consciousness that defies the ossified hegemony of the 1993 Oslo Accords.
The new consciousness formed by Palestinian sumud and resistance is clearly characterized by a rejection of the conditions imposed by apartheid Israel on the three components of the Palestinian people, residents of Gaza and the West Bank, the Palestinians in the territories Israel occupied in 1948, and refugees living in camps and in the diaspora.
Even more crucially, this is a rejection of the crumbs that are offered as a reward for good behavior to a select minority of Palestinians.
We have been told to accept Israeli occupation in its ugliest form – the apartheid wall, the colonies, the checkpoints, the segregated roads, the colour-coded number plates, the forced evictions and house demolitions, the “security coordination”, the arrests, torture and imprisonment – or have a medieval blockade imposed on us and be periodically bombed into death and oblivion.
But the answer from Gaza, Jerusalem, Lydda, Haifa and the rest of historic Palestine this spring was very clear: the Palestinian people will not be reduced to only those living in the 1967 occupied territories.
We are witnessing a paradigm shift from separatism, as represented by the two-state solution – which aims to establish a Palestinian Bantustan and deny the rights of millions to their land – to full Palestinian unity.
True, the Palestinian victory was very costly, but it was a decisive one.
The Palestinian people prevailed over an armed-to-the-teeth apartheid regime and its American-made Iron Dome by breaking through their own “Mental Dome”.
Palestine after Gaza 2021 will not be like Palestine before.
The Palestinians have begun to decolonize their minds away from the “peace process” and racist two-state solution and with their sumud, they have brought the arrogant Zionist regime in Palestine to its knees.
In 2015, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu joined world leaders in a rally in Paris after the horrific attacks on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a kosher supermarket claimed by the Islamic State group.
Afterward, Netanyahu proclaimed, “I went to Paris not just as the prime minister of Israel but as a representative of the entire Jewish people.”
It is this conflation between Israel and Judaism, one that is baked into the foundation of Israel and perpetuated by its leaders, that leads to a problematic tautology: Israel’s leaders represent all Jewish people, and thus by definition any criticism of Israel must be criticism of all Jewish people — and hence antisemitic.
The fact that Greene, despite her own record, felt comfortable weaponizing antisemitism as an alleged defense of Israel while spewing antisemitic remarks shows how cynical the discourse about this heinous form of racism has become.
Zionism is a movement to deceive Jews into advancing the objectives of British imperialism.
Zionists who have built their lives on a false premise naturally will reject this view.
Europe’s non-Zionist Jews were worth more dead than alive to Zionists and their financial sponsors.
The Holocaust provided a political and moral rationale for the establishment of the Jewish state.
An Israeli soldier detains a Palestinian man following a weekly protest against the expropriation of Palestinian land by Israel, Kfar Qaddum, West Bank, August 23, 2019.
This is what the editor of Haaretz’s Culture and Literature supplement, Benny Ziffer, wrote on his Facebook page upon returning from paying a condolence call in the settlement of Ofra: “En route I looked at the Palestinian villages alongside the Jewish communities, and I thought of how for the Palestinians murder is a type of sport or enjoyment, perhaps a substitute for erotica.
From that perspective we will never have anything culturally in common with them.”
And if that weren’t enough, Ziffer also wrote, “Regarding this evil and undignified people living among us, we can only yearn for the land to vomit it out, because it isn’t worthy of this land, which is full of Jewish blood that it has spilled.”
His post generated no comment.
Ziffer has apparently exhausted his allotted attention.
By contrast, Yaron London succeeded in raising a bigger momentary storm with less serious remarks: “Arabs are savages … they don’t only hate Jews, they kill their own first and foremost.”
More than one straight line connects London and Ziffer.
Their comments reflect the spirit of the times in Israel.
Both were once considered leftists; the unbridled right still considers London to be one.
Both are extraordinarily talented, brilliant intellectuals, of enviable erudition.
Sometimes it’s tempting to say that because of their rare media talent their remarks should be forgiven, lest we be left with Ayala Hasson and Yaakov Bardugo.
In contrast to their images as avant garde, they express what many people think, not to mention the majority opinion in Israel, which only the rules of political correctness keep from breaking out into the consensus.
More than they are racists, London and Ziffer are disseminating lies.
I was sitting in London’s studio when he said his piece; I tried to respond in real time but to no avail. So I will try here.
We examined the past decade; those murderous, bloodletting Palestinians, have since January 2009 killed 190 Israelis.
How many Palestinians were killed by Israel, the seeker of peace and goodness, which will never have anything culturally in common with the Arabs?
Israel was 18 times more murderous. Was it for sport? Erotic pleasure?
Of course not, but the blood speaks: Israel draws far more of it.
Is it permitted to say that it’s Israeli culture to spill blood wholesale?
According to London, yes.
There is something called national culture, even if it’s a culture of killing.
But when one speaks about genetic characteristics, it’s racism.
One can even generalize, as London said, a generalization will always be unjust to the individual and the exceptional.
But it has to based on reality, and the reality is that the enlightened whites have, in the past 100 years, massacred more people than all the Muslims and savages combined.
Not only were Hitler and Stalin not Muslims, since World War II the United States, the land of the free, is guilty of more killing than any other country.
Most of its mass killers are decidedly non-Muslim.
Someone who generalizes isn’t necessarily a racist.
If there’s a culture of killing, it actually exists in Israel.
Soldiers and policemen who shoot to kill as a first choice testify to a warped morality.
Fear, hatred, self-pity, the security cult, dehumanization and an itchy trigger finger are all Israeli cultural traits that lead to this mass blood-letting, but woe unto anyone who dares define Israel as having a murderous culture.
He’d be condemned as an anti-Semite.
The Palestinian people, on the other hand, are one of the most restrained people in history in its violent resistance to occupation and injustice.
That’s the truth, there’s no denying it.
Israel actually likes cultural and national generalizations, especially when they glorify its image.
The “Jewish genius,” “the chosen people,” “Jewish morality,” and “eternal Israel,” are evidence of baseless arrogance.
Ziffer has every right to think that the Palestinians enjoy murder and London can think they are savages compared to us, the enlightened and developed.
It is our right (and duty) to answer them: There are no lies more abominable than these.
“How can Syria ask for help from an entity that killed and participated in killing Syrians over the past decades and years?”
Israeli law, organs to be harvested without the family’s consent. The fact is, that Israeli organ harvesting—sometimes with Israeli governmental funding and the participation of high Israeli officials, prominent Israeli physicians, and Israeli government ministries—has been documented for many years. Among the victims have been Palestinians.
Israelis have been caught in the lucrative illegal trade of human organ harvesting in Kosova, India, Haiti, Chad, Belarus, Nicaragua. Peru, Nicaragua, Philippines, Turkey, Ukraine, China and Occupied Palestine.
While at least 45 other countries have offered to assist Turkey, relatively few have publicly committed to aiding Syria.
Now, Israel says it’s offering to admit Syrians to Israeli hospitals in the country’s north while reports in Syria deny reaching out to the enemy state for help.
A Syrian official source has categorically denied Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s claims that Damascus has requested earthquake relief aid from Tel Aviv, Al-Watan newspaper reported.
The paper quoted the unnamed official source as saying that if Netanyahu had received such a request, it is certainly from his allies and friends in Daesh, Jabhat Al-Nusra and terrorist organisations, adding: “The [Israeli] occupation entity is the cause of woes, wars and tensions in the region, and it is the last person who has the right to talk about providing aid and assistance.”
“It is disgraceful that Netanyahu exploits the earthquake catastrophe that had struck Syria to mislead public opinion and cover up the occupation’s expansionist and aggressive policies,” the source added.
Multiple Syrian official sources also denied Netanyahu’s claims. They told Al-Watan that everything published in the Israeli media is a “propaganda campaign” by Netanyahu.
“How can Syria ask for help from an entity that killed and participated in killing Syrians over the past decades and years?” the sources said.
In a speech yesterday, Netanyahu said he had ordered aid to be sent to Turkiye, the epicentre of yesterday’s earthquake. “Since a request was also received to do this for many victims of the earthquake in Syria, I instructed to do this as well,” he said.
At least 3,600 people have been killed by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Turkiye and Syria yesterday. The quake was so strong, residents in Lebanon, the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Israel and Cyprus could also feel the ground shake.
Israel’s very first, historic heart transplant used a heart removed from a living patient without consent or consulting his family.
In December 1968 a man named Avraham Sadegat (the New York Times seems to give his name as A Savgat)2 died two days after a stroke, even though his family had been told he was “doing well.”
After initially refusing to release his body, the Israeli hospital where he was being treated finally turned the man’s body over to his family.
They discovered that his upper body was wrapped in bandages; an odd situation, they felt, for someone who had suffered a stroke.
When they removed the bandages, they discovered that the chest cavity was stuffed with bandages, and the heart was missing.
During this time, the headline-making Israeli heart transplant had occurred.
After their initial shock, the man’s wife and brother began to put the two events together and demanded answers.
The hospital at first denied that Sadegat’s heart had been used in the headline-making transplant, but the family raised a media storm and eventually applied to three cabinet ministers.
Finally, weeks later and after the family had signed a document promising not to sue, the hospital admitted that Sadagat’s heart had been used.
The hospital explained that it had abided by Israeli law, which allowed organs to be harvested without the family’s consent.3 (The United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime includes the extraction of organs in its definition of human exploitation.)
Indications that the removal of Sadagat’s heart was the actual cause of death went unaddressed.

Also a US presidential candidate for 2024. Israel would love her the best, she is insanely devoted.
I promised to be the most pro-Israel Governor in America and our bold agenda for my upcoming Business Development Mission to Israel includes many historic firsts and strengthens Florida’s ties with Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East.
Christian Zionists managed, through the positioning of Mike Pence and fellow believers in the White House, an incredible measure of influence over the most powerful nation on earth.
Zionism is a Jewish political ideology that zealously promotes the existence of Israel as their religious homeland.
Since the Balfour declaration in 1917 signed Israel over to Baron de Rothschild, Jewish Zionists have been committing perpetual genocide against the non-Jewish (mostly Muslim) native Palestinians and have all but wiped them out.
Nowadays Israel has accumulated incredible financial/political clout, and many have rightly pointed out that modern America and Great Britain act as mere satellites of Israel and Israeli policy.
“The Jews rule this world by proxy.
They get others to fight and die for them.
They have now gained control of the most powerful countries … this tiny community heave become a world power.” -Malaysian Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohamed
“There is only one power which really counts: The power of political pressure.
We Jews are the most powerful people on earth, because we have this power, and we know how to apply it” -Ze’ev Jabotinsky, Jewish Daily Bulletin, July 27, 1935
The biggest banks including the Federal Reserve enslaving the world to debt-based currencies are all run by Zionist Jews: Rothschild’s of London and Berlin, Lazard Brothers of Paris, Israel Moses Seaf of Italy, Kuhn, Loeb & Co. of Germany and New York, Warburg & Co. of Germany, Lehman Brothers of New York, Goldman Sachs of New York, Rockefeller Brothers of New York, and many more.
The biggest and most influential lobby in America is none other than AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, and the majority of Congress has long been bought out by Israeli interests.
Former US congresswoman Cynthia McKinney exposed and blamed the American pro-Israeli lobby including AIPAC, ADL, AJC, and ZOA for ruining her political career.
In 2009 she told an interviewer that “more than 99% of Congress works for Pro Zionist Israeli interests.”
Because of her pro-Palestinian stance McKinney was ousted from Congress by the influence of Jewish lobbies funding and supporting her political opponents.
Another former US congressman, Jim Trafficant was also targeted and imprisoned on trumped-up corruption charges when he openly opposed the Israelis.
After serving 7 years in prison he came out in a television interview saying, “Israel has a powerful stranglehold on the American government.
They control both members of the House and the Senate.
They have us involved in wars in which we have little or no interest.
Our children are coming back in body bags.
Our nation is bankrupt over these wars.
And if you open your mouth, you get targeted.
And if they don’t beat you at the poll, they’ll put you in prison … They’re controlling much of our foreign policy.
They’re influencing much of our domestic policy.
Joe Biden and his vice president Kamala Harris are clearly members of the Democratic Party’s pro-Israel wing. We must remember that Harris was the one who led the Senate against then-U.S. President Barak Obama’s choice to abstain during the UN vote on Resolution 2334 condemning Israel for its settlements in the West Bank.
Wolfowitz as undersecretary of defense manipulated President Bush number two back into Iraq.
They’ve pushed definitely to try to get Bush before he left to move into Iran.
We’re conducting the expansionist policy of Israel and everybody’s afraid to say it.
It’s embedded in Zionism, which, like much of European colonial thought at the time, tried to wrap itself in some kind of civilizing conquest, a moral mission, Rudyard Kipling’s “white man’s burden,” a “return” for European Jews – long discriminated against and persecuted in Europe – to raise up the “sullen peoples” already there, as Kipling might have put it.
And such morality tales need myths.
Thus, Palestine was a “land without a people, for a people without a land.”
That myth transformed in time to the idea of the uncultivated land, the greening of the desert, the bringing of new technology to a backward people, an idea that Israel is still pushing today to gullible interviewers.
But Palestine under Ottoman rule (from the 16th century to the early 20th) was a mostly agrarian society even as it was developing into a regional trading hub.
Palestinians made their living largely off the cultivated land, but also from religious pilgrims, manufacturing and trade.
To insist that this very-much-present people did nothing to the land – that there “practically were no tenants there” in the words of Israel’s prime minister-in-waiting Benjamin Netanyahu – is simply not true.
And despite massive immigration from Europe, there were more than twice as many Palestinians as there were Jews by the time the Nakba started.
It was the Nakba that ensured radical demographic change, allowing a mostly Jewish state to emerge.
But unable to concede that Israel was somehow born in sin, one of the prime objectives of today’s Israel apologists has been to try and erase this history.
The current project of Palestinian erasure is more subtle than the past’s erasure of the physical evidence – the villages and towns, the people themselves.
Would, for instance, pointing out the reality of the Nakba fall foul of the the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of anti-Semitism, where one example is claiming that “the existence of the State of Israel is a racist endeavour”?
But how otherwise to explain the Nakba and its aftermath?
After all, Jewish colonists from Europe after 1917 – the vast majority – did not come to live equally with the indigenous population.
They came to claim a “national home” in Palestine as promised them by some distant British colonial overlord.
Some argue that these immigrants weren’t welcomed and hence had no choice but to fight.
But, first, why would anyone be surprised that Palestinians were not overly enthused by having tens of thousands of European migrants arriving on their shores to claim those shores for themselves?
Second, why drive the Palestinians out – more than 750,000 wound up in refugee camps in neighboring countries and territories, much more than half of the entire Palestinian population at the time – if this was not a project to replace one people with another, or, indeed, a “racist enterprise?”
Why prevent them from returning?
The 1950 law of absentee property allowed the Israeli state to confiscate what property and lands were still intact but whose owners had fled for safety, been forcibly removed or killed. International law stipulates that refugees have a right of return.
But Israel will not allow Palestinian refugees theirs.
There is no compensation offered, no acknowledgement, even, that this has happened, that these “absentees” were real.
Indeed, population transfer was always part of the Zionist equation.
Theodore Herzl, the founder of the Zionist movement, early advocated the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, writing in his diary that “we shall try to spirit the penniless [Arab] population across the border,” a “removal” that should be done “discretely and circumspectly.”
David Ben-Gurion, who would go on to become Israel’s first prime minister, in 1938 similarly made no bones about what he thought should happen: “I support compulsory transfer.
I do not see in it anything immoral.”
There was a Plan D – to go along with plans A, B, C – to be put into effect should the Palestinians reject the nascent UN’s 1947 partition plan.
(This rejection was widely expected.
Indeed, a British cabinet meeting from September 1948, after the fact, made it clear that it had long been commonly understood that a “separate Arab state would not be viable.”)
Plan D (Dalet) was explicit in its aims, detailing tactics for attacks on civilian populations and the destruction of villages.
Should villagers prove truculent, the plan was clear: they “must be expelled outside the borders of the state.”
In other words, the forced removal of Palestinians from their land was very much a plan, and, as Zionists saw it at the time, a necessity.
In the words of Benny Morris, an Israeli historian who first uncovered much of the documentary evidence for this ethnic cleansing in Israel’s archives: “Without the uprooting of the Palestinians, a Jewish state would not have arisen here.”
A global reach
With ethnic cleansing came the massacres. Deir Yassin, Lydda, Ramle, Tantura … the list goes on. It is also well-known, not least to those who perpetrated them.
Israeli protestations about Farha are therefore either purely performative – like the French police officer in Casablanca being “shocked, shocked” at Humphrey Bogart’s gambling den while collecting his winnings – or they are testament to how successful the attempt at burying history has been, especially among Israelis and their supporters.
وثّق الفيلم الإسرائيلي «#الطنطورة» رواية #النكبة الفلسطينية على لسان جنود صهاينة عن جرائم الحرب المرتكبة خلال مجزرة #قرية_الطنطورة الفلسطينية عام 1948. ويُعتبر الفيلم توثيقاً نوعياً من قبل أطراف إسرائيلية لوقوع المجزرة، ودحضاً للرواية الإسرائيلية الرسمية. pic.twitter.com/JOTjTBZ8JU
Certainly, they are an attempt at bullying those who would tell the truth, whitewashing historic crimes in such a way that any Palestinian resistance seems entirely irrational, and Palestinians are rendered merely as Kipling’s “Half devil and half child.”
Farha is a corrective to this camera obscura perspective on the past.
And whether all details in the film are documentary fact is as relevant to the truth of the Nakba as thousands of World War II movies are to the truth of the holocaust.
You can’t understand the issue of Palestine if you don’t understand the Nakba.
And you won’t resolve anything if the Nakba and all it entailed are not properly addressed.
With its Netflix platform, Farha has unprecedented global reach.
Well told and beautifully filmed, this is a potentially groundbreaking opportunity to engender greater understanding for Palestine in far-flung places.
For that reason alone, but also because it gives form and shape to something so crucial to the Palestinian experience, Farha is hugely important. Don’t miss it.
Renewed violence has flared up between Palestine and the Zionist entity over the past few days, which has been regarded as the deadliest in years by the UN, causing multiple deaths and injuries.
Though the United Nations has previously marked 2022 as one of the deadliest years in Zionist -Palestine conflict in recent history, violence has intensified once again after a cascade of events.
Nine Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces in the West Bank city of Jenin on Thursday, 26 January, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said, causing the Palestinian Authority to stop coordinating with Israel on security matters.
According to data from the Palestinian Ministry of Health, this puts the total number of Palestinians killed by Israeli troops in the first month of 2023 to 30.
A day after the raid, a Palestinian shooter near a synagogue outside of Jerusalem killed seven people and injured three more.
These events come against the backdrop of the visit by Itamar Ben-Gvir, Israel’s new terrorist Minister of National Security, to the holy sites in Jerusalem on 3 January.
The visit has been criticised by Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, and Bahrain, with the majority of them labelling it “provocative.”
CIA director Bill Burns, arrived in Tel Aviv on Thursday, 26 January, to meet with with his counterparts from both sides — Zionist and Palestinian — as well as other officials.
Analysts have noted that these visits have intensified the conflict, coupled with heightened tensions since an extreme-right Zionist government took power earlier this month.
But what do we know about the conflict so far?
What sparked the increase in violence?
Last Monday, 23 January, leading Israeli officials threatened to forcibly evict at least 180 Palestinians living in the Bedouin town of Khan al-Ahmar on the eastern outskirts of Jerusalem.
In response, dozens of Palestinians protested against these threats.
Palestinian activists such as Khairy Hanoun, who was at the protest at Khan al-Ahmar, told Al Jazeera: “We came here to challenge Ben-Gvir’s decision and the decisions of all of the right-wing government.”
Ben-Gvir declared that the forcible removal of the community would proceed, and plans for a visit to the location by far-right ministers like Ben-Gvir and Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich emerged.
By late 2021, these resistance groups declared the Palestinian Authority’s security forces unwelcome in the Jenin refugee camp and the Old City of Nablus.
The Palestinian Authority’s security forces have been losing control over these areas over time due to its security coordination with Israel.
Israeli forces carried out a raid in the Jenin Refugee Camp in the north of the occupied West Bank on the morning of Thursday, 26 January.
At least nine Palestinians, including one elderly woman and two children, were killed by Israeli forces.
The raids are a part of a campaign Israel calls “Break the Wave” in which it targets fighters associated with armed organisations by conducting mass arrests and executions in locations like the two northern occupied West Bank cities.
The campaign aims to quell the shift towards a Palestinian armed resistance that has formed in Jenin and Nablus following a large-scale popular outburst of Palestinian resistance in May 2021.

On Friday, 27 January – a day following the raid in Jenin, the deadliest Israeli raid in years on the West Bank – a Palestinian gunman killed seven people and wounded three others near a synagogue on the outskirts of Jerusalem.
According to a statement from Israeli police, the shooter was a 21-year-old Palestinian living in East Jerusalem who appears to have carried out the shooting alone.
The action was lauded as “a response to the crime performed by the occupation in Jenin and a natural response to the occupation’s criminal deeds,” by a spokesman for the Islamist movement Hamas.
The Egyptian Foreign Ministry underlined its rejection of “any attacks that harm civilians” in a statement and emphasised its denunciation of the attack.
After the synagogue shooting attack, U.S. President Joe Biden told his national security team to help their Israeli counterparts, according to the White House.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also announced that the cabinet would meet on Saturday following the attack.
The new far-right Israeli government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has given important roles to Israeli members of the far-right, including Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, who is now in charge of administrating the West Bank.
Jenin – the name is now a synonym for the brutality of the Israeli war machine, and for the heroism of the Palestinian people as they seek to defend themselves against a merciless assault.
The Israelis and their amen corner aren’t going to spin their way out of this one, and they know it.
Here’s Janine di Giovanni in the London Times:”The refugees I had interviewed in recent days while trying to enter the camp were not lying.
If anything, they underestimated the the carnage and the horror.
Rarely, in more than a decade of war reporting from Bosnia, Chechnya, Sierra Leone, Kosovo, have I seen such deliberate destruction, such disrespect for human life.”
Using civilians as human shields, the Israelis went on a rampage of vengeance and bloodlust that only ran its course when the streets of Jenin were running with blood – not only the gore of fighters, as the Israelis are now claiming, but that of innocent civilians wantonly murdered.
Here’s Marie Colvin, of the Times, tracking down the horrific truth.
Apparently, she had only to – literally – follow her nose:
“The first medical teams allowed into the Jenin refugee camp last week followed the chickens.
Human senses were overwhelmed by the devastation and the stench of death, but the birds were not distracted.
They were hungry. Two rusty-colored fowl pecking away at a bundle in the street drew a Red Cross team to the remains of Jamal Sabagh.
“He wasn’t really recognizable to an untrained eye. His body had been lying there for more than a week.
The Israeli army had banned ambulances from the camp for 11 days, and neighbors were too terrified to go to him.”
“Tank tracks led to his body, over it and onwards through the mud. What had once been a young man was rotting flesh mingled with shredded clothing, mashed into the earth.
One foot was all that looked human.”
THE HOMICIDE OFFENSIVE
Oh, can’t you just hear Bill Bennett and his fellow Israel Firsters trying to justify this atrocity?
After all, Sabagh was a terrorist, a potential suicide bomber, a fanatic bent on the destruction of Israel, and was killed in the course of what the IDF calls a “battle.”
Except that Sabagh wasn’t a fighter.
A diabetic too ill to flee, he was also fearful that he might be mistaken for a fighter if he left his house. So he stayed – definitely a mistake:
“Two days later, he left his house when the Israelis yelled over megaphones that they were going to blow it up.
He walked, directed by soldiers in armoured personnel carriers, with other men to Seha Street at the centre of the camp, carrying his bag of medicines.
He joined the crowd. Soldiers yelled at him to take off his shirt, then his trousers.
He clung to his bag of medicine as he tried to unbuckle his belt, and he was slow.
The soldiers shot him, friends say.”
The editorially pro-Israel Telegraph was equally damning, with one story headlined “Horror Stories from the Siege of Jenin.”
Summary executions, including the murder of young children, vicious beatings of women, and a complete disregard for the elementary rules of war, marks the Israelis’ “Operation Defensive Shield” – what a name! – as the devilish work of homicidal maniacs.
Why else would the IDF have bulldozed houses, without warning, while whole families were still in them?
This was the Homicide Offensive, meant to deliver a death blow to the Palestinian nation.
But swiftly burying the bodies under tons of rubble wasn’t deep enough: as Nahum Barnea, whom the Telegraph describes as Israel’s leading newspaper commentator, put it:
“If Israel does not find some way to give them a dignified burial, the bodies will bury Israel.”
Barnea recognizes that the main front in the war for a Greater Israel is not on the West Bank, but in the West Wing – and in the West generally.
In the propaganda war for the hearts and minds of their American patrons – without whom Israel would not last a year – the Sharon government is conducting a desperate struggle to suppress the truth not only about Jenin, but about their own annexationist agenda.
“Operation Defensive Shield,” eh? Now comes the news that Sharon plans to absorb half the West Bank into Israel proper.
The Israeli blitzkrieg was about as “defensive” as Germany’s invasion of Czechoslovakia in the dark days prior to World War II – and just as ominous.
HILLARY JOINS THE VRWC
For weeks, the pro-Israel lobby in the US has been on the offensive, mirroring the IDF’s scorched earth tactics with a take-no-prisoners propaganda blitz.
Former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu led the charge up Capitol Hill, with the usual array of sniper pundits giving him plenty of cover.
Bob Novak archly remarked that Bibi’s trip seemed to be an electioneering jaunt – perhaps to get his old job back – but left tantalizingly open the question of which election in which country.
In a dress rehearsal for the key Florida election, putative presidential candidate Joe Lieberman and the Democrats competed with right-wing Republicans to see who could roll out the red carpet faster.
The Los Angeles Times pointed to the emergence of a Lieberman-Hillary Clinton-conservative Republican alliance in Congress giving unconditional support to Israel – surely the ugliest marriage of convenience since the Hitler-Stalin Pact.
Hillary joins the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy – or is it the other way around?
At any rate, who woulda thought it would come to this? – the conservatives and the Clintonistas, together at last.
THE VULTURE BRAYS
As the story of Jenin unfolded, the Israeli disinformation campaign went into high gear, with an op-ed by Netanyahu in the War Street Journal that would win an Academy Award if ever they gave one for rank hypocrisy.
As the stench of the bodies rises up from the rubble of Jenin, this vulture brays that the root cause of terrorism is not “the deprivation of rights” – after all, Gandhi didn’t resort to suicide bombings to free India from British rule – but totalitarianism:
“Those who fight as terrorists rule as terrorists.
People who deliberately target the innocent never become leaders who protect freedom and human rights.
When terrorists seize power, they invariably set up the darkest of dictatorships–whether in Iraq, Iran,Afghanistan or Arafatistan.
In short, the reason why some resort to terror and others do not is not any absence of rights, but the presence of a tyrannical mindset.”
Israel, as we are continually reminded, is a “democracy,” but so was South Africa under the Boers. And remember, we aren’t talking about Israel proper anymore, but about Sharonistan – the Jewish state plus the annexed territories. Israel may have started out as a liberal democracy, but can a Greater Israel remain one? Contra Bibi, people who deliberately target the innocent have become the leaders of the Israeli state – so can we now confidently predict “the darkest of dictatorships” as Israel’s future?
LOST IN THE ORIENT
My good friend Emmanuel Goldstein, writing in his really quite excellent blog, Airstrip One, has a very interesting theory that impacts on this issue: he thinks Israel has been Orientalized by the influx of Sephardic (largely Arab) and Russian immigrants, and asks “are we expecting too much of Israel?” “Until recently,” he writes,
“I’ve always rooted for Israel. So why do I get so upset when they flood the airwaves with porn?
Well perhaps because I see them as being Westernized. The same reason that I support them is the same reason I expect such high standards.”
But with Jenin, something seems to have happened to the Western idealism that motivated the original Zionist movement, the souring of a once sweet wine that no amount of sugar can mask.
Goldstein, I think correctly, points to the Orientalist mindset of more recent immigrants, with their higher birthrate, as the future of Israel:
“So what are the cultural implications of this?
Well it is orientalizing Israel.
Whereas the predominantly Ashkenasi Zionist movement was heavily influenced by the ideas sweeping around Western Europe because of the years spent in or near Western Europe – what is the likely outcome of a longer immersion in Arab culture for the Sephardic Jews?
“So is this hand wringing all misplaced.
Is Israel simply orientalizing, or to be more accurate Arabising?
As anyone who followed the Lebanese civil war – and the behaviour of the Phalangists – knows, it is not enough to look to the West to act Western….Maybe what we are seeing is that Israel is becoming a foreign country to us.”
An Israeli island in the sea of Araby has been inundated and conquered, culturally and spiritually, if not yet demographically. That is the significance of Jenin, and of all the Jenins to come.
DEPT. OF SELF-PROMOTION
My regular readers will remember that I alerted you to the forthcoming publication of an anthology containing one of my past columns, and now I can report that Taking Sides: Clashing Views on Controversial Issues in American Foreign Policy (second edition), is out – and I am jazzed.
Not just for reasons of egoboo – although there is some of that – but because it turns out this is a textbook, presented in a “Crossfire”-style debate format, intended for college and advanced high school students.
That, of course, is precisely where Antiwar.com needs to be: in the classrooms, where tomorrow’s leaders and voters are learning about the vital foreign policy issues of our time.
By the way, my own contribution is not the only reason to buy this little volume: Gee, I can’t wait to read chapter 17, which deals with the question: “Did US Military Action Against Yugoslavia Violate Just War Theory?”
Defending the rape of the former Yugoslavia is none other than Bill Clinton, but even more intriguing is the opposing piece by Marine lieutenant colonel William T. DeCamp III, whose article, arguing in the affirmative, was first published in the Marine Corps Gazette!
The book seems to be doing well, so far: Amazon says they have only three left in stock, but more are on the way.
That includes the financial system, security apparatus, Pentagon, politicians, courts, judges, police, schools, intellectual property, natural resources, utilities, media, big corporations, technology, and whatever else I failed to mention.
It implies the existence of nation-state governance.
Today’s US is an amalgamation of corporations and parasitic financial institutions largely run by Rothschild Zionists.
America isn’t a nation, it’s a corporate empire, or more accurately- ZioCorp.
First a disclaimer.
When I use terms like “ZOG” or “ZioCorp,” I am not referring to “Fiddler on the Roof” Jews or Moe, Larry, and Curly.
I mean a global criminal banking syndicate headed by satanic usurer Jews and their eugenics-obsessed Rockefeller crime family associate who employ Rothschild Zionists and globalists of all stripes to prop up a business model that rests on the pillars of debt slavery, spiritual/physical destruction, and planetary rape.
I harbor no ill will toward any race, religion, ethnic group, consenting adult orientation, or gender. In Tao, internal transcends external.
Second disclaimer (or notice).
I sometimes use colorful language.
This article is not suitable for delicate ladies or children. If that’s you, stop reading.
ZioCorp owns everything.
That includes the financial system, security apparatus, Pentagon, politicians, courts, judges, police, schools, intellectual property, natural resources, utilities, media, big corporations, technology, and whatever else I failed to mention.
ZioCorp holds full spectrum dominance over its subjects.
Neoliberal capitalism enabled ZioCorp to commoditize everything- including human beings.
Not content with owning every grain of sand and drop of water, global finance wants the proprietary rights to your DNA, internal organs, blood and lymphatic systems, and thought processes.
They changed the name of the personnel department to human resources.
That wasn’t by accident. You are a harvestable resource.
ZioCorp isn’t like the traditional dictatorship run by a mustachioed strong man.
Decisions are made in boardrooms by people you will never see or know.
It’s what political philosopher Sheldon Wolin called “inverted totalitarianism.”
ZioCorp’s loyal servants come from all races, genders, and religions.
Don’t think because you are White or Black, and you get a White or Black judge, he or she will go easier on you.
It’s like the NWA “F*ck the Police” rap song says: “But don’t let it be a Black and a White one.
Cause they’ll slam ya down to the street top.
Black police showin’ out for the White cop.”
The song’s point being the Black cop beats down the Black arrestee harder to gain approval from his White partner.
Your racial brethren will kick your face in twice as hard to prove their loyalty to ZioCorp.
See Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, etc.
To understand ZioCorp, we need to explore capitalism, and more importantly, the inherent flaws within it that made the current situation possible.
Some people freak over any critique of capitalism, as they regard it as an attack on American patriotism.
After all, America was founded as a capitalist country
Someone from the reactionary right is reading this and thinking: “Criticize capitalism?!
You Antifa pinko communist Marxist Jew.
You just want to take my money and give it to some #BLM crack ho and her kids.
F*ck you and the menorah you rode in on.”
Easy sheriff. To quote American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman, “Cool it with the anti-semitic remarks.”
Pretend you’re at one of those 5-star luxury ashrams frequented by rich White broads and the Maharishi’s at the head of the class telling you to go ommmmm. Breathe baby, breathe.
I recognize that capitalism contains positive aspects.
It can take the selfishness and egotism found within human nature and channel those traits into productive outcomes.
Ethical entrepreneurs produce amazing things.
Some people express their creativity through small business ownership.
Because it focuses on “the individual,” capitalism gave us the Bill of Rights.
Millennia of buying and selling have ingrained market thinking into the human psyche.
Even non-technological societies use beads and bird feathers to conduct transactions.
I’m not suggesting eliminating money.
Imagine buying a car on Craigslist if you needed to show up with a herd of sheep to take home a Camry.
However, capitalism also destroys the “collective.”
Unchecked, it devours everything in its path.
It eats the poor, working class, middle class, and eventually the upper middle class.
It also destroys the environment, leaving us with radioactive oceans and poisoned rivers.
In end-stage capitalism, oligarchs fight each other for the last slice of cherry pie while the masses drown in a sea of economic and social chaos. Sound familiar?
Of all the nations, China seems most willing to experiment with different economic paradigms.
They may eventually lead humanity to a post-scarcity Star Trek economy where people work for their purpose rather than a paycheck.
Whether they succeed or not is indeterminate at this juncture.
City of London bankers plan on turning China into corporate headquarters after the US collapses.
Global finance has an impressive track record with national infiltration and takeover.
Never underestimate their capabilities.
The former United States republic now US Anglo-Zionist Empire stands as the textbook model for banker takeover.
How’d it happen?
For the sake of brevity, I’ll provide the sped-up Dr. Morell B12- cocaine-amphetamine elixir version.
The Founding Fathers “American Experiment” sought to replace monarchical rule with rule by the “Invisible Hand of Capitalism.”
As per their guru John Locke, the cornerstone of the new republic became economics and private property.
Being wealthy landowners gave the Founding Fathers a huge advantage.
Their willingness to commoditize African slaves to save on labor costs demonstrates their religious devotion to capitalism.
To get the hoi polloi to fight for the new system, the nouveau plutocrats promised them constitutional rights and fat land grants.
Why else would the soldiers freeze their asses off at Valley Forge? While the average White male gained some groovy civil liberties, the founding Fathers reneged on the land grants and other promised perks.
George Washington’s crushing of the farmers’ “Whisky Rebellion” laid the foundation for an IRS police state and oligarchic rule.
In the 1800s, French political philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville observed that Americans were obsessed with getting rich.
A money-driven nation becomes an easy mark for Central Bankers.
The US Civil War allowed the Rothschilds to get their intractable foot in the bank vault door.* (*Sarah E.V. Emery, “Seven Financial Conspiracies Which Have Enslaved The American People.”)
This was followed by the unconstitutional Federal Reserve Act of 1913 which turned over US money creation to the international financiers.
A move that resulted in the theft of hundreds of trillions of dollars.
After the US became the bankers’ central hub, it needed a permanent war machine to keep the global grift going.
In his prescient farewell address, Eisenhower warned about the dangers of a runaway Military Industrial Complex.
The Wall Street-inflicted Great Depression almost sank capitalism.
FDR instituted bank reforms and social safety nets to save his fellow plutocrats and the flailing system.
In their insatiable greed, the banker class started chipping away at the policies that both rescued them and created a stable middle class.
Bit by bit, the hued-out spaces were filled with corporate cement.
Saint Ronald Reagan’s eyedropper “trickle-down economics” deregulated the banks and corporations and laid the finishing girders for the corporatist dystopia skyscraper.
Reagan’s firing of the striking air traffic controllers destroyed organized labor, and the standard of living previously enjoyed by the working class.
Bill Clinton completed the edifice with NAFTA, repeal of Glass-Steagall banking rules, outsourcing of the manufacturing base, and steroidal Mr. Universe corporate deregulation.
Many Americans went along with these policies in hopes they’d become rich enough to garner an invite to the Donald Trump-P Diddy-Miss America contestant hot tub party.
A big problem with making money the cornerstone of a society is that you get a Ralph Kramden population forever searching for the next “no money down” get-rich-quick infomercial scheme.
If that doesn’t work, play the lottery.
“You’ve got to be in it to win it.”
After the 9/11 zio-attack, George W. Bush told Americans to “go shopping.”
The oligarchy kept the serfs hoofing it by dangling dreams of solid gold Trump toilet bowls and oil sheik mega yachts coupled with fear of death by predatory capitalism.
However, even Rush Limbaugh devotee ding dongs are beginning to realize the game is rigged.
The glass ceiling of upward mobility has turned to lead.
This revelation tends to upset people. “Fight Club’s” Tyler Durden said it best: “We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d be millionaires, movie gods, and rock stars.
But we won’t.
We’re slowly learning that fact.
And we’re very very pissed off.”
Damn straight b!tch.
Give us our free sh!t or burn this motherf*cker to the ground. Lindsey Graham, Chuck Schumer, and their corporate donors are stealing whatever’s not welded to the floor.
If you’re middle/working class, take anything and everything from the “government” that you can, and use it to stock up on ammo, freeze-dried food, and Johnny Walker Blue Label.
Fight for your share of the loot before the Central Bankers install their NWO digital currency.
Then the faucets get superglue tightened.
In the meantime, fly in the helicopter money you child-raping globalist scum.
Riot for UBI or let the old lady work so you can stay home and practice your tiger claw thrust and flying tortoise shell trachea strike.
Civil war and economic crash ahead. Let the robots flip the burgers.
AI can man the call centers.
Employers broke the social contract when they forced workers to get the DARPA vax.
If you succumbed because you dislike sleeping in the street then hopefully you received your dose from the control or low-concentration batch.
If they injured you or ruined the DNA your ancestors fought saber tooth tigers to give you, you’d need to put in serious work to make that right.
That could include some weekends and holidays.
While not easy, leveling that karma would be better than Norma Jean’s sweet cherry pie.
As a side note- I’m not an anti-vax zealot.
If an adult wants to take the mRNA vaccine, that’s their business.
Just don’t mandate it.
And stop releasing “gain of function” bioweapons on the public.
Back to “free government cheese.”
Mention universal healthcare, UBI, or free college, and the Ben Shapiro ziotarian kicks out his “we can’t afford it” auto-response.
We can’t afford universal healthcare but the 2008 29 trillion dollar banker bailout (CNBC Money) was totally doable.
And so was the 6 trillion dollar Iraq War that Shapiro pushed.
And the hundreds of billions in corporate subsidies.
And the trillions we send to Israel either directly or through fighting their wars.
According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, it would take 20 billion dollars to end homelessness in the US.
That’s half of one Ukraine War installment payment.
In controlled scarcity capitalism, they don’t want to end homelessness.
The homeless guy scrounging the trash for bottles reminds you that you can never quit your sh!t job- even if it means submitting to medical experimentation.
Ziocapitalism is a scam.
Not only could we have universal healthcare (medical bills are the leading cause of bankruptcy in the US- American Journal of Public Health), but that stolen loot could provide every American with a 100 grand check and a gold-plated Cadillac.
It’s not that the average American wouldn’t mind breaking a few bucks off their paycheck so Billy the Orphan could get his leukemia treatments, but once the wallet cracks a little, the government inserts its tire jack and cranks it all the way open.
Then the bread gets funneled to the pig trough where Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea stick their snouts in it. Or it gets turned into rainbow flag bombs that get dropped on Middle East kids.
Big corporations and oligarch billionaires don’t pay taxes.
Even if a few sometimes pay “for show taxes,” that money is looped back to them via the Central Bankers.
If you can’t afford an army of tax lawyers and offshore corporation setups, you pay.
If you get snared in an IRS audit, you could get fisted harder than a twink in a Gay pride parade S&M float.
Taxation is a ZioCorp scam. Advances in monetary technology make taxation obsolete.
Public banking as advocated by economists like Ellen Brown along with new high-tech financial tools would allow Billy to get his cancer medicine and you to hold on to your bread.
ZioCorp keeps the IRS around to smash small businesses and the middle class.
Taxation is a police state tool that allows the parasites to strip you of your assets and throw you in prison.
Step on a crack, and the IRS charges you with breaking your momma’s back.
If we don’t raise taxes, does that mean the Fed cartel should print even more Ponzi digital dollars to pay for social safety nets?
Absolutely. The stated US debt is 30 trillion.
According to Forbes, the actual debt is 200 trillion.
It doesn’t matter if it hits 500 gazillion. It’s unpayable. When it pops, it pops.
From a theoretical perspective, if a society evolves technologically, robots and AI (or machine learning) replace human labor.
If it comes down to Universal Basic Income or Davos depopulation- I choose UBI.
It’s going to take some real Jimmy Hoffa UBI teamsters to make it happen.
In my unscientific estimate, 80 percent of ‘Murican men are either weak p*ssy momma whores, zipper brains, or in most cases, both.
About 20 percent are solid cats with 1-5 percent of those being psycho-warriors. The 20 percent determine how it goes.
The political class are criminals.
They understand your wanting cash.
That’s not subversive, like asking for free speech or an end to the zio-wars.
They might cough up a few bucks out of self-interest with the proper application of pressure.
The Hollywood celebrity “c*ntessa” with 50 million Instagram followers means nothing to me.
It’s the working man (and woman) who ships food to my table and keeps the lights on.
They deserve their cut.
As does the orphan and widow.
As for Hollywood- keep Sean Penn.
While I liked him in “The Falcon and the Snowman,” Bill Gates pumped so much mRNA jizz up his ass, it shot out his nose like milk during a laughing fit.
I think the high force pressure caused brain damage.
Capitalism creates billionaires.
Billionaires destroy civil society. I can live with millionaires.
Billionaires buy your government, e.g., Citizens United v FEC. I don’t care how many “checks and balances” get put in place, at some point they bribe the gatekeepers.
I think the best solution is to impose a 5 million dollar per year personal wealth cap.
If an ethical entrepreneur makes more than that, let him put it in trust for his kids (who have the same cap), reinvest in new ventures, or donate the surplus to Sister Mary’s orphanage.
No Bill Gates fake philanthropic foundations please.
If you can’t live the good life on an annual 5 million tax-free salary, you’re what “Scarface” called a “haza” (chazzer).
What’s a haza?
Like Tony Montana explained to his former boss Frank Lopez, “You remember what a haza is Frank?
It’s a pig that don’t fly straight.”
The rentier capitalism parasite FIRE economy is a haza system.
When it comes to billionaire-bought political systems, the US has no rival.
I’m amazed people still vote. Dominion should install a seat with an electric cattle prod dildo in their rigged voting booths.
That would provide Americans with a more authentic voting experience.
Keep jerking off to hope porn and Marjorie Taylor Greene pics.
I prefer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
To help cover the congressional pay raise, MTG and AOC could star together in a girl-on-girl pay-per-view special.
Highrollers could book private sessions. Caligula put the senators’ wives to work in the imperial brothel.
I think that sister f*cker was on to something.
Even if you remove the zio from capitalism, it contains fundamental flaws.
Take the Apple iPhone.
I don’t know how often Apple comes out with a new model, but for the sake of this exercise, pretend it’s once a year.
Apple probably has all the “bells and whistles” that they’re going to install over the next ten years.
However, if Apple sells you an indestructible iPhone with the next ten years of bells and whistles on it, the company loses money.
They would have sold you one iPhone instead of ten.
To maximize Apple’s profits and meet consumer demand, the CIA overthrows reformist governments to keep the lithium flowing and the planet turns into a toxic waste dump.
The GDP endless growth/consumption model is crashing hard.
The globalist oligarchs who created the problem have come up with the solution- and a final one at that.
People are tired of the “Capitalism is Jesus” Ayn Rand rap.
So am I. Full disclosure- I liked “Atlas Shrugged” and “The Fountainhead.”
As for Jesus, his program was a lot closer to pre-2016 Bernie Sanders’ than Milton Friedman’s.
However you view capitalism, or socialism, or Rosicrucianism, or purple flying unicorns named Mandy- it doesn’t really matter.
We’ve entered end-stage capitalism/Great Reset/Tribulation, with no return bus to Mayberry.
ZioCorp’s opted for the controlled collapse business model.
Will it remain on top after the freakshow carnival tent folds in on itself?
I don’t know. I’m stupid. That’s why I follow Tao.
