Fake News: Most US Catholics Have Been Voting Republican for Many Years Now

I have no idea why people believe this nonsense.

I had thought that US Catholics had never voted for a Republican President, but I was wrong about that. Nevertheless, out of 16 Presidential elections since 1956, Catholics have only voted for Republicans in five of them. The other nine times they voted Democratic. There has been no major trend towards Catholics voting Republican in recent years, and their record after Reagan was not much different than before Reagan. Catholics voted for Eisenhower in 1956, Nixon in 1972, Reagan twice in 1980 and 1984 and Trump in 2016.

In all other years, they voted Democratic. The highest turnout of course was for Kennedy, when Catholics voted 82% for him. They voted twice for Johnson by high margins, once for Carter, twice for Bill Clinton, once for Gore and Kerry, and twice for Obama. It’s hard to say there if much of a trend in how they are voting in any direction. It’s mostly been a wash.

So 70% of the time, Catholics vote Democratic. Trump changed that pattern in a single case history last year, but let’s see how long that lasts.

Have Hispanics Ever Voted for a Republican President?

For some crazy reason, a lot of people insist that a majority of Hispanics voted for George Bush in 2004. It’s fake news, absolutely not true. Bush did get 41% that year, but Kerry got 59%. This is the best that any Republican Presidential candidate has ever done with Hispanics. I do not believe a majority of Hispanics will ever vote for a Republican President in my lifetime. And it’s probably getting worse, not better. Republicans were crowing that Donald Trump got a whole 28% of the Hispanic to Hillary’s 72%. Hispanics vote Republican! There are headlines like that all over the Net. I am sure these rightwing media clowns wish that was true. Since when is losing an election by 44 points something to crow about? What universe do these people live in?

I have studied Presidential elections all the way back to Richard Nixon in 1972. Hispanics were only tracked well in recent elections and 1972 was the earliest tracking I could find for Hispanic voters. No doubt there were Hispanic voters before 1972, but they were such a tiny percentage that they may not have been tracked. I am completely certain that no Hispanic majority ever voted for a Republican President prior to 1972 either. Hispanics just don’t vote Republican. They’re not as hardcore of Democrats as Blacks, but they are about next up.

Next to Bush Jr.’s record, Nixon comes in second for Hispanic votes. He got fully 40% of the Hispanic vote in 1972, but George McGovern, parodied as the ultimate hard loser in US politics, got a full 60% of the Hispanic vote in a year that was a legendary massacre for him. The fact that 60% of Hispanics voted for one of the most unpopular Democratic candidates in recent history really tells you something about how these people vote.

Hispanics voted for McGovern, Carter twice, Mondale, Dukakis, Bill Clinton twice, Gore, Kerry, Obama twice and Hillary.

The fact that so many media accolades were showered on George Bush Jr. after losing the Hispanic vote by 18 full points just shows you how pathetic the fools who think Hispanics will ever vote Hispanic in the next 20-25 years are.

Polish Political Scientist on the Alt Left

This is a very important article, the first review of the Alt Left ever written by an actual expert on politics, in this case a Political Science professor. The only problem is that he lives in Poland and he wrote this article in Polish! He seems to support the Alt Left. He discusses both me and Rabbit, but most of the focus is on me. And why not? I am the one who started this whole mess after all.

Here it is translated in the best translation I could do.

Alt-Left

Dr Hab. Jarosław Tomasiewicz

02-10-2017

For a decade I have criticized the Polish Left for intellectual impotence expressed in the mindless import of foreign designs. CTRL + C, CRTL + V. It is such a vicious circle: the peculiar combination of geopolitical, historical, socioeconomic and cultural factors has left the Left in Poland (aside from some historical exceptions) a lone minority.

The feeling of isolation meant that the Left waited for outside help (“Moscow yesterday, today Brussels”); elevating “brotherly international solidarity” instead of concentrating on the workers at home deepened the alienation of the Left. Where, a hundred years ago, the Left flourished intellectually (Brzozowski, Abramowski, Luxembourg, Kelles-Krauz, Machajski, Hempel – and many, many others), nowadays, after decades of importing foreign ideas and attempting to implant them in Polish culture, the Polish Left has become intellectually sterile. Bringing the Polish Left to the role of translator of external trends, I see not only me – a “very strange figure” as one of the leftwing editors once called me – but also the Left-leaning generals.

But there is no need to repeat myself as my position on this is well-known. On the contrary – I will criticize the Native Left of the Vistula Backwater for remaining unaware of the latest cutting edge Left political programs from our brethren born in the homeland of the World Creative Class, that is, America.

This latest development followed this pattern:

In recent years, the Hipster Left, now pretending to be a Radical Left, has sunk in the warm sun of a Liberal Mainstream now dominated by the geopolitical system. It was safe to fight for progress behind the back of the liberal state – obviously not to seek any pure utopia ostensibly criticized for “errors and distortions”, but it was still considered less evil than the menace of populism.

The Left was kept in check by the “enlightened absolutism” of the European Union and America reasserting itself as as the keystone of the global order under the leadership of  the benign Uncle Barack. In this way, a phenomenon characteristic of the final days of empires emerged.

First, the Imperialist Left who finance social reforms in the metropolis of the First World profited from the Developed World’s hegemonic oppression of the periphery – the people in the Third World – and therefore was interested in maintaining the existing oppressive geopolitical order This situation was described well by Bernard Semmel.

Next, the toothless Mainstream Right, centered on maximizing corporate profits, could still attempt to launch a Cultural War but was instead generally pushed into a deeply defensive position due to the increasing domination of culture by the Cultural Left.

Finally, the Far Right was more interested in their hysterical, sensationalist, and conspiratorial media than in the real world .

Until one day a Demon returned from the the past.

An “Alt Right” appeared on the scene. “The Alternative Right”: alternative to the Mainstream Right. The phenomenon is otherwise uneven. This is not a reactionary neoliberal/neoconservative New Right whose last expression was the Tea Party. Alt Right is the rebirth of the hard-core “Old Right” – ethnopolitical, traditionalist, populist – in new postmodernist forms. A unique return to the roots. And it was the Alt Rightists who managed to beat the mainstream left in its own field: to win the support of the workers using non-cultural terms (Thomas Frank was a bit outdated) and economics. Workers from the Core Belt backed protectionism against globalism.

For the Left, who has already forgotten the anti-imperialism that once characterized it, this is a geopolitical earthquake like a reversal of the Earth’s magnetic poles. Suddenly there was no point of support, no reference point. The Left must find himself given the reality of this new situation. We need self-criticism, reorientation, and re-evaluation. Answer the question: What is to be done? The most popular answer is: What we have always done, only moreso. Purge the ranks, dig in their positions.

This is a bourgeois reaction frightened by the status quo. The bureaucracies of the safe zones become the universities and the liberal self-governments of the big cities. Rolling Stone Magazine describes the formation of the anti-Trump coalition . There will be pro-immigrant groups, environmentalists, feminists, sexual minorities, gun control advocates, and  interestingly, “true conservatives” (the neoconservatives) who are reluctant to support Trump. Did I miss anyone? Did you notice? One group I failed to mention is the unions. It seems that the Left has insulted the workers. Instead of Democrats meeting with union leaders, Trump meets with them.

However, not all American Leftists are carnal cult members, confident that the repetition of certain rituals will provide them with prosperity. Some believe that the challenge of Alt-Right requires a symmetrical response: to create an alternative to the Left mainstream harkening back to the forgotten foundations of the left. Opponents see the emergence of the Alt-Left phenomenon as a new embodiment of the alliance of extremes, “the place where Pat Buchanan meets Ralph Nader, ” although Alt-Leftists reject any form of cooperation with actual fascists, hardcore racists, and obsessive and conspiratorial anti-Semites. Proponents argue that this is a de facto return to the tradition of the Old Left – “the Left as it was from the Second World War to the counter-culture of the 1960’s.”

This implies first and foremost, the primacy of economics over culture, the primordial basis of superstructure, and a return to the Marxian thesis that “being forms consciousness.” Contempt for the poor and losers in capitalist society is condemned as one of the worst sins of all.

“We will be Left on economic matters [but] more Centrist on culture,” wrote Robert Lindsay, a leading Alt Left thinker.

This approach puts the Alt Left in opposition to both technocratic social democrats that have long since taken up neoliberalism while abandoning the working class on the Right and the “Cultural Left” on the other side of the political spectrum. The Alt-Left sees the Right as simply “traitors to the working class – our class enemies,” according to Lindsay. But it is towards the second group, which the Alt-Left sees as “rootless cosmopolitans,” that the Alt-Left devotes most of its polemical fervor.

Alt Left tolerates the Cultural Left as long as they are relatively quiet about their antagonizing views. The Cultural Left is criticized not for the legitimacy or direction of cultural change but rather for its extremism.

Lindsay writes:

Gay Rights – yes! Gay politics – no! Support and tolerance for biological homosexuals to live their lives as they wish in freedom and happiness. On the other hand, homosexuality should not be exalted or promoted […].

Women’s rights – yes! Women’s politics – no! The Alternative Left supports equity feminism while rejecting  the gender feminism of radical feminists who hate men.

According to Alt-Leftists, the “Identity Politics” promoted by the Cultural Left led to the replacement of class struggle with racial and/or sexual conflict. In this view, White people were evil…and anyone who was not White was automatically a saint. This meant not only that all Whites were part of a racist class but that they also all shared collective responsibility and guilt. Let us note that while class membership can be changed relatively easily, race or gender cannot, which makes any antagonism engendered by race or gender insurmountable.

Another aspect of the Alternative Left is internationalism, but here it is understood as anti-imperialism instead of cosmopolitanism. Lindsay emphasizes that the desire of people to have a national, ethnic or religious identity should be seen as a right that can not be interfered with. The result is an acceptance of  the multiculturalism of immigrants in the first generation but the promotion of assimilation in the next. On the one hand, extreme patriotism and Western imperialism are also criticized –  the Alt Left even singles out Bernie Sanders, as as a “Cold War liberal”. On the other hand, the view that “the West is pure evil” is rejected. The Alt Left detaches itself from both anti-Semitism and Radical Zionism, accepting anti-Zionists but also moderate Zionists.

The American Alt Left has been around for only little over one year (the site Altleft.com appeared in November 2015), and is a small movement made up of a number of different strands or wings.

One of Lindsay’s followers wrote:

Unfortunately, Alt Left attracts a wide variety of weird people, and each one has their own clichéd ideas for what Alt Left should be.

Well, beginnings are always difficult.

Should Poles mimic the Alt Left? No. It is enough to return to our native traditions, a matter-of-fact, homegrown analysis of reality – simply common sense. Swallows can be seen.

Donald Trump – The Ultimate Jewish President

Trump is utterly unhinged.

He has already ordered several attacks on the Syrian military. There were several attacks on the Syrian military and some false flags under Obama but it seems they were done by Defense Secretary Ashton Carter without the president or his advisers knowing about it. It was a case of insubordination on the part of the US military. The President opposed attacks on Syria, so the CIA and the Defense Department went around him and ordered them anyway, later either saying they were accidentally or turning them into false flags and blaming the Russians.

He did that for a ((certain group of people)). Donald Trump is fanatically pro-Jewish and pro-Israel. Under Trump the Jews* have never had so much power and control over the US government. The US now is effectively completely controlled by the Jews* now for the first time in US history. In the past, they had partial control, but now the neoconservatives, the pro-Israelis and their Gentile supporters have got the US government by the balls worse than they ever have before.

It is important to note that the Jews have the support of vast swaths of the Gentile population in enabling neoconservative and pro-Israeli control of the government. The Jews are only 2% and they could never take over the government without the help of huge numbers of Gentiles. Donald Trump is an example of what happens when Jews take over your government. Very quickly there is huge military clash on your hands as the Jews attitude is “constant war against all non-Jews.” Hence, Jewish control is usually followed by wars or threats of wars. The stupidest thing Americans have ever done is let these psycho people get America by the balls.

What is completely insane is that almost 100% of the wildest antisemites in America are wildly rooting for the most Jewish president in the history of our country. Absolutely incredible.

Trump is the most pro-Jewish and pro-Israel president in the history of America.

* Note: The Jews refers to Jewish neoconservatives and strongly pro-Israeli Jews and the huge percentages of the Gentile population who support the neoconservative and pro-Israeli project. If you are a Jew who is opposed to neoconservatism or Israel-firster Jews, I am not talking about you.

Soft Rock from the 1960’s: Scott McKenzie “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)”

God I love this song! And I still love the hippies, too. If there’s anything we need to go back to, it’s that. It’s so painful to realize that the Flower Children of the 1960’s grew up to be a generation that voted in Donald Trump.

Or did they?

You must understand. Back in those days with Revolution in the air, maybe half the young people were part of the Movement and the other half hated it with all their guts and intensity. We never hear about them. There were as many young people for the war as against it. There were as many lining up outside ROTC buildings as there were bombing them. The campuses were full of short-haired conservatives, members of Buckley’s Young Americans for Freedom. Sometimes it played out in the streets, when rightwing construction workers and even bikers assaulted hippies. It’s true. Bikers have always been conservatives and still are to this very day. I’m sure they all voted for Trump this time around.

What we saw in the 1990’s and 200’s was history replaying itself, but this time as farce. Bush and his minions – Rumsfeld, Cheney, the neoconservative Jews around Bill Kristol and his father Irving at Commentary, John Bolton, Condoleeza Rice, Colon Powell – these were the 60’s Generation too, but they were the other side of the mirror – the 60’s young conservatives who hated the Movement types as much as anyone’s parents did.

Clinton ruled for eight years, and he was the Hippie Movement Generation or the Revolutionary 1960’s in power even though he barely inhaled. One of the reasons he was so hated is because the Culture War of the 1960’s-1970’s with a generation split between Left and Right at each others’ throats trying to – sometimes successfully – kill each other, never really ended. There was no truce or even a ceasefire. Surely there was no peace deal.

And when Bush came in, he was the other side of the coin, this time the conservatives of the 1960’s – the squares as we derisively called them – had taken back over the reigns from their lifelong enemies. They did it by stealing elections, but they got in no matter what.

The 1960’s were replayed again under Barack Obama, this time even worse, with accusations of hobnobbing around with actual revolutionaries like Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn (these are still two of my heroes), former high-ranking members of the Weather Underground who lived underground for over a decade and resurfaced only to be pardoned of all charges.

Dohrn and Ayers resurfaced as Education Professors at the University of Chicago where they teach to this day. U of Chicago has a bad rap. Forget the Economics Department where the curse of neoliberalism was resurrected from the dead by Friedman and his gangsters who then went on to destroy Chile and poison the minds of generations. There’s a whole tradition of radicalism there too, especially in the social sciences and nowadays in the Education Department. Former bomb-throwing revolutionaries now tenured professors living comfortable lives in ivy-covered brick apartments? Who could have guessed?

Chicago’s a funny place. Sure you had the reactionary Tribune, but you also had Marshall Fields, a Leftist millionaire and head of a department store chain who funded huge pro-labor newspapers because they would die with ads they would never get. It’s a funny place, Left and Right all mixed in and in each other’s face, gripped at each other’s throats and choking hard, sort of like…the whole country now? N’est pas?

The reaction against the so-called Movement radicalism of Obama in power was of course the election of Trump on a fake populist platform, whose job it is apparently to roll back the entire Revolutionary Project of the 1960’s – and the New Deal of the 1930’s while they’re at it – and oh Hell, let’s go all the way back to Gilded Age of the 1890’s as Rove dreams. We’re already there anyway. What is the US from 1990-present but the Gilded Age Part 2, as if we never learned a thing the first time?

The infinite return coming back to punch us all in the face again. Cirlces aren’t all round. Some are flat in fact.

Riverrun, past Eve and Adams, from swerve of shore to bend of bay…

OK, you get it now?

Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen, “This Land Is Our Land”

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California to the New York Island
From the Redwood Forest, to the Gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

And I went walking that ribbon of highway
And saw above me that endless skyway
I saw below me the golden valley
This land was made for you and me

I roamed and rambled and followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me, a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me
A sign was painted said: Private Property
But on the back side it didn’t say nothing
This land was made for you and me

In the squares of the city, in the shadow of a steeple
By the Relief Office, I’d seen my people
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking
Is this land made for you and me?

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking that freedom highway
Nobody living can ever make me turn back
This land was made for you and me

When the sun come shining, then I was strolling
In wheat fields waving and dust clouds rolling
The voice was chanting as the fog was lifting
This land was made for you and me

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California to the New York Island
From the Redwood Forest, to the Gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

Written by Woody Guthrie. Sung by Bruce Springsteen and Pete Seeger (age 80).

From the great inauguration of Barack Obama in 2008. I was in a doctor’s office and the news came on that Obama had won. I saw the crowds mobbing the streets, all marching towards the main park of Chicago. The volatile Spike Lee was there. “This changes everything!” He effused. There was a little Black girl sitting next to me, maybe seven years old. I asked her if she liked Obama. She nodded her head shyly. I had tears in my eyes. How dare these idiots call me racist! What sort of racist cries tears of joy when he hears that America just elected its first Black president?

The three bolded sections above are the “forbidden lyrics.” Although Guthrie included them when he wrote the song in 1940, they are seldom performed in modern versions as they were considered subversive as promoting socialism or Communism. The song is actually a great socialist anthem. Woody Guthrie was definitely a leftwinger.

Given the choice, I would rather have the land owned by me (the state) than owned by some private individual. What’s so great about private ownership of land? What’s better for me, land that I can walk on or land that I can’t walk on? How bout the land that I can walk on?

One of the reasons for China’s great success is that the state owns all the land. Everybody just leases the land where their home or farm is. In The Netherlands also, the state owns all the land. Everybody just leases out whatever land they use. Same thing in Cuba, but in Cuba now, almost everyone owns their own residence. And a great argument for China’s success against India’s failure is that much of the poverty, malnutrition, etc. in India is caused by the private ownership of land, especially in the rural areas. India said they were going to do land reforms and they claimed to do them over and over but the truth is that no real land reform has ever been done in India, and semi-feudal relations still prevail in the countryside. Hence the horrific poverty, starvation, etc.

One of the all-time great folk songs ever written. A purely American song like virtually no other. I believe we should replace that horrible Star Spangled Banner with this much better song. This song also captures the true American spirit. The land does indeed belong to all of us, you and me. All that land the government owns, it doesn’t belong to the government. It belongs to me! It’s my land, dammit! How dare the rich give away my land to malign corporations and the 1%! Forget that. You take my land, and you give it all away to the corporations and the rich to abuse and destroy. What sort of democracy is that?

Plutocratic rule is never democracy. How can it be? The plutocrats are what? 1% 5%? Where do idiot Americans get it in their heads that rule by the rich or the ruling class is somehow democracy. Aristocratic rule is never democracy at any time or in any place. It can’t be. You either have conservatism, which is rule by the rich or the aristocrats, or you have democracy, which is rule by the people. That’s your only two choices. One or the other? Which one do you want? The rich will never rule in favor of the people. They can’t. They literally cannot. They must rule in their class interests. It’s nearly a law of social science as hard and fast as a hard science rule.

Written by Woody Guthrie! One of the best working class folk singer-songwriters who ever lived. He was also a tough, macho guy, a redneck, a worker, a blue collar roughneck with a cigarette dangling from his mouth James Dean style. This is what the Left used to be before it was taken over by effeminate men, butch women, man-hating feminists, White-hating minorities who idolize common street thugs, anti-nationalists advocating to turn all of America into a teeming Third World Calcutta, all manner of sexual identity and sexual orientation freakazoids with so many weird subgroups that they are almost beyond classification, and in general idiots, fools, deviants and dumbasses.

Woody Guthrie is what the Left used to be. He’s what the Left is supposed to be. He was born too soon. He was Alt Left before there was an Alt Left!

This guitar kills fascists!

DNC Democrats Burn in Hell

Here.

Take your studies and stick em where the sun don’t shine. They’re not in parallel markets anyway. ATT and Time Warner “compete” in the cable market. In a typical city, you have one DSL provider and one cable provider.  You also have one satellite provider. In truth,  none of them compete at all. They all offer extremely slow service and criminally usurious rates. High speed Internet is much faster and much cheaper in the rest of the world where the government often owns the lines. We capitalist retards in the US let the capitalist crooks build their own phone lines and lay their own cable, hence, every city has a monopoly DSL and phone carrier and a monopoly cable carrier. Cable service is horrific in most US cities. Comcast is usually rated as the worst company in the US.

Another Hillary clone. Jon Ossoff, who lost in Newt Gingrich’s district in Atlanta, was another Clinton/Obama corporate Democrat “Centrist.” There is really nothing Centrist whatsoever about this Clintonite cancer that has taken over the Democratic Party. It started under Bill Clinton when the DINO named Bill created the DLC to take over the DNC which had become too pro-people and not sufficiently pro-rich and pro-corporate. Hence the lead DINO himself engineered a coup in which the DLC basically took over the DNC. Around the same time, a similar tumor called “New Labour” grew in the UK, destroying the once pro-worker and pro-people Labour Party and leaving the UK with two Tory parties.

Corbyn’s recent victory in the last election is part of a brutal civil war in Labour between New Labour Tories and the real Labourites under Corbyn. The entire UK media, including the “leftwing” corporate Labour outlet The Guardian have come out ferociously against Corbyn. Similarly, the Guardian absolutely hates Bernie Sanders and has always supported the Clintonite usurpers and traitors. Surprise surprise it is also a leading member of the (((Western media))) that lies constantly about the war in Syria in order to start another War for the Jews in the Levant.

“Centrist” Dems and “Centrist” Labourites are frankly a cancer, mostly because there is nothing centrist about them. Or, if that’s centrism, let me off the bus please. I signed up for progress, not another party of the corporations and the rich.

Maryland, Washington DC Sue Trump for Violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution

46r5j7J7

This Presidency is so bad it is like some sort of a sick joke.

No kidding he has been violating the Emoluments Clause!

No standing <potus< has ever acted w/such disregard for the constitution’s guard against corruption and improper influence

Exactly. In other words, this is by far the most corrupt president in US history by orders of magnitude. It almost boggles the mind how bad this president is. He’s so bad you wonder if it’s even real. It seems more like a bad movie. The President simply put is not allowed to use his office to enrich himself in any way, shape or form. It’s worse than illegal. It is actually unconstitutional. And this joker has been violating the clause since Day One.

DCIJqSCWsAAK5is

Well, it looks like the GSA got corrupted too. This country is turning into a Goddamned banana republic and it’s heading towards a tinpot dictatorship. What is interesting about this is that every time Whites become a minority over non-Whites, they become unbelievably corrupt, murderous and dictatorial. Such has been the case with Latin America and the Philippines and to some extent South Africa. White people are only modern, democratic and progressive when they are a majority. This Latin Americanization of the US has been going on ever since that abomination Reagan came in. The Reagan Administration was unbelievably corrupt. Almost all conservative governments are corrupt because they are so pro-capitalist. The more pro-capitalist a government is, the more corrupt it is. It is nearly a law of political science.

All other presidents have always divested of everything they own and then put it all in a blind trust. It’s standard procedure. Bush Sr. did it, Clinton did it, Hell even the frightening bad Bush Jr. did it, and of course Obama did it. You have to sell off all your business interests and then put the money in a blind trust. Everyone does this. Everyone.

But rules are for other people, not this clown. Which rules and laws apply to him? None of them. He’s ruling by the Divine Right of Kings. This is a man who believes that the aristocrats must rule the people, which is standard conservative ideology.

What is the remedy for violation of the Emoluments Clause? The Constitution states that violations of the Emoluments Clause should be punished by impeachment. It’s an impeachable offense without a doubt. So this Congress is refusing to do their Constitutional duty as the Constitution demands and impeach a President flagrantly violating the Constitution and committing impeachable offenses every day he is in offense. One wonders who is more corrupt, Congress or the President. Really the whole Republican Party is corrupt to the core. And the rot set in with Reagan. Even Nixon wasn’t this corrupt, and certainly neither Eisenhower nor Ford were.

What is pitiful about this is that his idiot followers elected him due to their outrage at “corrupt Hillary.” Now I like Hillary Clinton about as much as I like hemorrhoids, but she was hardly corrupt at all. Even if she was a bit corrupt like most corporate politicians, she had nothing on Trump, whose corruption was orders of magnitude greater. If you want to know what Trump is thinking or is going to do, look at who he is pointing fingers at. Because this president is so psychologically ill, he resorts to primitive defenses such as projection on a regular basis. I expect corrupt backwaters like India, Saudi Arabia and Turkey to project away like this because they have taken lying to a fine art form. But we were supposed to be the city on the hill, the exception to the Machiavellian rules of dirty politics.

Notice that Trump was pointing fingers at Hillary the whole campaign, calling her “corrupt Hillary?” He’s projecting! By constantly pointing a finger at Hillary and calling her corrupt, he is calling himself corrupt. Deep down inside he knows he is corrupt and he does not feel real good about that so he has to project the blame and guilt away onto some innocent person. Problem is that projection as a defense does not work very well, and as soon as  you get up the next morning, there’s that old black dog of blame and guilt again. So as the new day dawns, this person must start pointing fingers again all the time. These defenses are always temporary fixes, psychological jerry-rigging. They never really fix the problem and the issue always comes rearing up from behind no matter how many times you band-aid it over.

Deleted Daily Mail Online Article: “US Backed Plan for Chemical Weapon Attack in Syria to Be Blamed on Assad”

This is actually true and this is not the first time we have heard this. The US government and even Obama planned a fake chemical weapons attack in Syria for years now.

We have a voice recording of John Kerry discussing an upcoming false flag chemical weapons attack on Syria in January 2013. Kerry is badgering the Turks to go ahead with their false flag and asking what is taking them so long. Members of Turkish Parliament later released evidence that Turkish intelligence had worked together with Al Qaeda to do the first false flag attack, the fake chemical weapons attack in Ghouta in July 2013.

Nothing about this attack made sense. It occurred on the very day when UN inspectors arrived in Damascus to review reports that the US-backed Al Qaeda and other rebels used chemical weapons. Assad waits until a UN team summoned by Assad to investigate chemical weapons attacks by rebels, and then he does his own chemical weapons attack? Give it up! Furthermore, that attack occurred on the exact one year anniversary of the date when Obama drew his line in the sand and said that if Assad used chemical weapons, we would invade and regime change him. So Assad waits until the one year anniversary of a threat by the US to invade and topple the regime if they use chemical weapons, and on that very date, he uses chemical weapons! Give it up!

Furthermore, UN investigators concluded that there was no evidence that Assad launched a chemical weapons attack in Ghouta in July 2013.

Obama was set to go to war with Syria to topple the regime when British intelligence found that the Sarin used in the Ghouta attack did not match Assad’s stockpiles. Instead it was bathtub Sarin with the exact signature of a batch of bathtub Sarin that had been seized from Al Qaeda operatives in Turkey earlier.

The MI5 conclusion was that Assad did not launch a chemical weapons attack in Ghouta. This information was then relayed to the CIA. Soon before Obama was to give a speech announcing attack on Syria, the head of the CIA informed Obama that the CIA had concluded based on British intelligence that Assad had not launched a chemical weapons attack in Ghouta in 2013. This is the real reason why Obama did not launch his attack on Syria after the fake Ghouta attack.

As we can see now, the CIA has concluded that the Assad did not launch chemical weapons in Ghouta in 2013 and he did not launch them in the most recent case in Hama either.

So it looks like the (((entire US media))) and much of the Western media is flat out lying about both of these fake chemical weapons attacks.

There have been many Sarin and Chlorine gas attacks in this war, all of which have been blamed on Assad. However, my investigation revealed that all of the ones I looked at so far were cases where the rebels used chemical weapons and then blamed Assad for it. This whole nutty Syrian war has been one endless false flag from start to finish.

This article was first published by GR in June 2013,  the author is the Truthnewsinternational blog site.

In January 29, 2013, Britain’s most popular daily newspaper, in its online version Dailymail.co.uk published an article titled:

U.S. ‘Backed Plan to Launch Chemical Weapon Attack on Syria and Blame it on Assad’s Regime’

A few days later they pulled the article.

What the reason was for the deletion remains unclear. The article was published at this URL:

There exists a cached version of the article which can be found here:

syria, emails, Daily Mail, deleted article

One day later, on January 30, a moderated news board thread was created, which is still online, at Mail Online about that article. Thread: Syrian WMD False Flag – Are False Flags a Way of Life Now?

In their initial article Mail Online refers to an Infowars.com article (dated January 28, 2013), that’s where they probably found the information on the leaked e-mail and other documents.

CapitalBay  (who published the wrong areal pictures of the school in Sandy Hook), Mail Online, Infowars, Yahoo News India, News Track India, Whale.to, Philippine Times, Uganda News, LiveLeak, Truth Media TV and others all claim in their mirrored articles that the alleged e-mail from Britam’s David Goulding to Philip Doughty was dated December 25, 2012.

However, at Neftegaz.ru (translated with Google) there also exists another version of the alleged e-mail. There the e-mail is dated December 24, 2012.

Whether the content of the alleged e-mail is correct, that’s open for debate. Fact is that PressTV has an article online which supports the claims in the alleged e-mail. And RT‘s article from last year (June 10, 2012) still claims that “Syrian rebels aim to use chemical weapons,” to then blame Assad for it. Those weapons came from Libya, according to RT. This begs the question: Did Christopher Stevens know about those weapons when he died in the CIA villa in Benghazi last year?

But why was the article pulled by Mail Online?

Why do there exist at least two versions of the same alleged e-mail?

And what about Britam admitting that they were hacked, according to Ruvr.co.uk (The Voice of Russia)?

But there’s also this, according to Mail Online it was a Malaysian hacker who got to the alleged e-mail(s), while Infowars claims that the e-mail was “obtained by a hacker in Germany.”

Either way, whoever initiated the Britam email escapade did a good job at fooling both mainstream and alternative news outlets because it’s a real mess and few know what really happened and why.

Yet it’s ironic that Mail Online did not delete their other article where they wrote about the UN’s Carla Del Ponte who claims that Syrian rebels are responsible for “sarin gas attacks, which had been blamed on Assad’s troops.” The same rebels who now receive resources from the EU and the U.S., since the EU is buying oil from those “rebels” and the US is arming them for a proxy war as the Washington Post describes it.

Earlier it was reported that (((Israel))) had granted oil exploration rights inside Syria, in the occupied (((Golan Heights))), to Genie Energy who’s shareholders include (((Rupert Murdoch))) and (((Lord Jacob Rothschild))).

Donald Trump, Radical Free Trader

 

Turns out all that crap you heard about Trump bashing our lousy trade deals was nothing but a lie. Yes, he canned the TPP. Let us give him credit for that. And he said he was going to renegotiate NAFTA, presumably to remove the nasty TPP like elements in it. But Trump was lying. He’s not an economic nationalist at all. Instead he’s just another corporate free trader. What else would you expect from a billionaire corporate mogul of a huge multinational corporation.

Turns out Trump’s plan to renegotiate NAFTA is to make it a lot worse! Well of course. He was never on the side of workers, consumers, the environment, the people or even the country. No corporate executives ever are. They always dead-set against all of those things and corporations always do everything in their power to screw over workers, consumers, the environment, the people, and even the nation every time they get. Because all those things stand in the way of their profits. Since Trump has come in, he has set about dismantling many of our worker protections and pro worker laws.

He has also been eliminating a lot of our consumer protections and pro consumer laws. He was taking a wrecking ball to our environmental laws and declared total war on the Environment. And Trump so far has been one of the most anti-people Presidents we have ever had. Trump is for the aristocrats, not the people. You’re either for the aristocrats or you’re for the people. Conservatism is the political philosophy of the aristocrats. It says aristocrats shall rule and have everything and the people shall remain out of power and have nothing. On the other hand, liberalism is about democracy. Liberalism says the people should rule, not the aristocrats, and the wealth should be divided among the people, not hoarded by aristocrats.

It turns out that Trump is actually worse than Clinton on Trade.  No way would Clinton have renegotiated NAFTA to make it worse. Forget it.

Trump lied about Trade.

He lied about foreign policy. He said he was an isolationist and he attacked the Obama Administration for getting involved in Syria. Now Trump is starting a war against Assad in Syria, a very dangerous move. Hillary would never have done that. Trump is worse than Hillary on Syria and foreign policy in general.

Trump lied and said he would protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. His new budget calls for destroying Social Security and Medicare and radically cutting back Medicaid.

He lied about everything. All you clowns who voted for him got taken. You’re all a bunch of suckers. Idiots.

Last week, a draft of President Donald Trump’s notice to Congress describing plans for NAFTA renegotiation was leaked to the press.

Instead of replacing NAFTA with something “a lot better” for working Americans as Trump promised, the plan describes adding aspects of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) without removing any of NAFTA’s worst terms.

The headlines say it all:

  • “After Calling NAFTA ‘Worst Trade Deal,’ Trump Appears to Soften Stance” — The New York Times
  • “TPP Reincarnation” — Washington Trade Daily
  • “Business Groups See Positives in Draft NAFTA Notice …” — Inside U.S. Trade
  • “Trump’s Draft Proposal Makes Tweaks To NAFTA” — NPR

Perhaps the most shocking element is that Trump would keep the terms at the heart of NAFTA that expand corporate power. Yes, the extremely threatening, controversial, corporate “investor-state” tribunal regime would stay in place.

The leaked plan even expands the privileges for multinational corporations that make it easier to offshore jobs.

It would not remove the ban on Buy Local and Buy American. And there is not one word on fixing the currency manipulation problems that Trump said fuel our massive trade deficit.

The plan is packed with language cut and pasted from documents trade officials used last year to describe the TPP. This includes the TPP terms that threaten access to medicines, financial regulation and safe food. Plus, it calls for use of the labor and environmental terms from the TPP that were resoundingly rejected as ineffective by unions and environmental organizations.
