Delusions of Self-Defense: Biden Bombs Syria

Binoy Kampmark

Every power worth its portion of salt in the Levant these days seems to be doing it. On February 25, President Joe Biden ordered airstrikes against Syria. The premise for the attacks was implausible.

“These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against American and Coalition personnel in Iraq,” claimed Pentagon spokesman John Kirby, “and to ongoing threats to those personnel.”

More specifically, the strikes were in retaliation for rocket attacks in northern Iraq on the airport of Erbil that left a Filipino contractor working for the US military dead and six others injured, including a Louisiana National Guard soldier. The targets in Syria were facilities used by Iranian-backed militia groups, including Kataib Hezbollah and Kataib Sayyid al-Shuhada. According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the attack left up to 22 people dead.

The Biden administration has resorted to tactics long embraced by US presidents. To be noticed, you need to bomb a country.

The measure, more a sign of raging impotence than stark virility, is always larded with jargon and bureaucratic platitudes.

“We said a number of times that we will respond on our timeline,” explained Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to reporters keeping him company on a flight from California to Washington. “We wanted to be sure of the connectivity and we wanted to be sure about the right targets.” He was convinced “that the target was being used by the same Shia militants that conducted the [February 15] strikes.”

Seven 500-pound bombs were used in the operation, though Stars and Stripes initially reported that “the type of weaponry used” was not disclosed. The Pentagon had been keen to push a larger range of targets, but Biden was being presidential in restraint, approving, as the New York Times puts it, “a less aggressive option”.

Kirby insisted the operation had been the sensible outcome of discussions with coalition partners. “The operation sends an unambiguous message: President Biden will act to protect American and Coalition personnel.”

Defying credulity, the spokesman suggested that the US had “acted in a deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq.”

Congress, the people’s chamber, was left out in the cold, though not for the first time by this administration. Press outlets such as the Associated Press had ingested the fable that this was “the first military action undertaken by the Biden administration”. But on January 27, the New York Times reported that the US Air Force had killed 10 ISIS members near Kirkuk in Iraq, including Abu Yasser al-Issawi. A spokesman for the US-led coalition against Islamic State, Colonel Wayne Marotto, was satisfied with the bloody result. “Yasser’s death is another significant blow to Daesh resurgence efforts in Iraq.”

Such casual non-reporting, even during the incipient stages of a presidential administration, should have received a tongue-lashing. Instead, there were a good number in the press stable who could only see the figure of the previous White House occupant, and feel relief that Biden was being so sensible.

The Daily Beast suggested, with little substance, that the airstrike lacked the recklessness of the Trump administration. Bobby Ghosh for Bloomberg, also falling into error in claiming this as Biden’s “first military attack”, was convinced that the actions were sound in letting those naughty Iranians “know” that the president “wasn’t bluffing.”:

[Iran and its] proxies were caught completely off guard. They had been lulled into a sense of impunity by the administration’s early reticence in attributing blame for the attacks in Iraq and the White House’s determination not to ‘lash out and risk and escalation’.”

Ghosh even goes so far as to laud the February 25 military strike as a necessary antidote against paralysing and unproductive diplomacy, ignoring accounts suggesting that Iran has encouraged Shiite militias in Iraq to refrain from excessive violence.

The US, including its allies, Britain, France, and Germany, had initially embraced a posture of “studied calm”. Thankfully, that period of studiousness was over: “Biden has now demonstrated that he can walk and chew gum at the same time.” And so, a vigilante act in violation of a State’s sovereignty comes to be praised.

Not all have sanitised the act as a necessitous one. Mary Ellen O’Connell of Notre Dame Law School thought that the strike failed to meet the necessary “elements” of a necessary use of force:

The United Nations Charter makes absolutely clear that the use of military force on the territory of a foreign sovereign state is lawful only in response to an armed attack on the defending state for which the target is responsible.”

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was also troubled by the strike, worried that it put:

“our country on the path of continuing the Forever War instead of ending it. This is the same path we’ve been on for almost two decades.”

Maine Democrat Senator Tim Kaine turned to the role of Congressional power:

“Offensive military action without congressional approval is not constitutional absent extraordinary military circumstances.”

Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar also pointed out that the current White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had herself criticised President Donald Trump in 2017 for authorising a strike in retaliation of a chemical weapons attack. “Assad is a brutal dictator,” tweeted Psaki at the time. “But Syria is a sovereign country.” Another sentiment forgotten in an increasingly amnesiac administration.

Unfortunately, war apologists tend to find ongoing justifications in the elastic imperial provisions found in the Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF). The 2001 AUMF was focused on perpetrators of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. The 2002 AUMF was directed to Iraq.

Their sheer broadness has irked the sole person to vote against them.

“Nearly 20 years after I cast the sole ‘no’ vote on the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF),” stated Californian House Representative Barbara Lee, “both the 2002 and 2002 AUMFs have been employed by three successive Presidents to wage war in ways well beyond the scope that Congress initially intended.”

Biden does not even go so far as to cite such authorities, instead stating that the strikes were:

consistent with my responsibility to protect United States citizens both home and abroad and in furtherance of United States national security and foreign policy interests, pursuant to my constitutional authority to conduct United States foreign relations and as Commander in Chief and Chief Executive.”

Overly stretching his argument, Biden opined that his action was also consistent with Article 51 of the United Nations Charter, acknowledging a state’s right to self-defense. Not even Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama or Trump had bothered to push the international law line for such thuggish intervention, confining themselves to domestic sources of power.

But such virtue signalling did evoke some praise, notably from former legal adviser to the State Department, John B. Bellinger III. The President’s inaugural war powers report was “a model of war powers practice and transparency.”

Congress has made a few efforts in recent years to restrain the Commander-in-Chief for overzealous commitments. The War Powers Resolution sought to end US participation in the Yemen conflict. In 2020, members of Congress resolved to modestly shackle Trump from commencing a full-blown war with Iran. But the February 25 attacks show that the misuse and abuse of US military might by the imperial executive remains a dangerous orthodoxy, and one that continues to have its defenders.

Unless the US can convince an honest judge that Syria has either:

  1. Bombed the USA in its own territories.
  2. Carried out a military invasion of any US territories.
  3. Instigated any other act of warfare on US territory.

then any statement by any US politician, diplomat or media prostitute that Syria represents a military threat to the USA must be used as evidence that they are mentally subnormal cretins in need of permanent hospitalisation.

Syria represents zero threat to the USA and Biden knows this.

Biden bombs Syria because the USA has zero respect for international law but expects to be respected despite that.

The time has come to remove diplomatic immunity from all US diplomats the world over until such time as they spend 4 years respecting international law.

That means that US diplomats can be arrested, put on trial, jailed pending trial etc etc.

It’s not nice, but it’s time for that sort of global response to a nation that no longer is worthy of any respect.

Its an unfortuante face of life but we’re probably bombing Syria because the Israelis asked us to. They’re the only actors in the region who’ve got a stake in causing trouble (the Turks might be in there as well but their focus is narrower and less long term).

Biden’s boat sailed long ago.
There was a time when he appeared to be decent Vice-Presidential material, but the material just didn’t materialize…

And so, America sits there with yet another drooling tool ‘sitting at the helm’ – a phrase which now means nothing at all, since there is no competent crew aboard.

At this rate, putting a man on Mars, metaphorically speaking, can only be weeks away, and Biden is that man. He has what it takes to lead America into outer space for good.

Washington generally is, of course, already so spaced out that it doesn’t even need to make the trip.

It’s been fun, USA, but the rest of us can’t go on tolerating such contempt for human evolution forever.
Adulthood and maturity await, and you’re going to have to abandon ship if you want to keep up.
Disneyland isn’t real, and the things that are real have been suffering from decades of neglect. That all needs to be put right, so that we are no longer afraid of the truth.

An update from the funhouse show:

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/22252171/qanon-donald-trump-conspiracy-theories

You will note the visual:

Jake Angeli, who, according to Wiki is “the “QAnon Shaman”, “Q Shaman”, and “Yellowstone Wolf”, is an American conspiracy theorist, actor, author, and activist who participated in the 2021 storming of the United States Capitol. He is a former supporter of former President Donald Trump and a proponent of the QAnon conspiracy theory.”

He also showed up, embarrassingly at a BLM protest. But don’t worry. Wiki has ironed that one out: our Jake “has counter-protested at Black Lives Matter rallies”.

But on to the article:

Through the invention of the straw man “QAnon Believer”, the media have set up an infinitely flexible “enemy of the people” as evidenced by that deliciously mutable expression “conspiracy theory”:

“Conspiracy theories are powerful precisely because they’re so flexible. They never have to cohere; they just have to explain what seems otherwise inexplicable and, above all, offer the believer a sense of direction in a complicated world.”

The most revealing thing about this passage is how nebulous it is. And note how both sides are nebulous i.e. the world is “complicated” and “seems otherwise inexplicable” i.e. it can seemingly be explained by the other side of the equation i.e. these “conspiracy theories”. But these theories are “flexible” and “never have to cohere”. Which suggests that the very definition of “conspiracy theory” is flexible and incoherent.

And how curious that we then hear about what might happen “if QAnon shape-shifts into an even more nebulous cult”. It’s beginning to sound as if QAnon may have as many variants and mutations as the ever expanding covid creature.

So we naturally go off into the comparison with religion and predictably list the more outlandish theories. Bu the true nature of the complaint against this QAnon entity is this:

“… the QAnon epistemology — the idea that every official narrative and mainstream institution is inherently suspect, and that real knowledge is produced by like-minded strangers working together on the internet to “do their own research” — is likely to become a more or less permanent feature of American life, regardless of what happens to QAnon itself. Once you’ve started seeing the world as a massive, interconnected conspiracy orchestrated by bloodthirsty elites, it’s very hard to stop.”

The last bit about the massive interconnected conspiracy is yet more obfuscation of that “flexible” and “nebulous” monster. The true transgression lies in that notion that “every official narrative and mainstream institution is inherently suspect” and, even more blasphemous, people who “do their own research”.

In other words: “Stop doing your own research! You don’t want to end up as one of those nuts!”

So, who are you to rely on? The article helpfully explains:

“Millions of people rely on Vox’s explanatory journalism to understand how policy decisions will impact their lives, and the lives of their loved ones and communities. Every day at Vox, our team aims to empower people with clear, accessible information on the important issues. But that work is expensive. Help us keep our work free for all by making a financial contribution from as little as $3.”

Umm…no!

Well argued Binoy. These military interventions will never end. In fact when everybody in western countries has succumbed totally to the lockdown mentality and the enslavement is complete the military will march into developing and undeveloped countries as easily as Hitler’s army marched into Czechoslovakia.

As to the so-called Syrian Observatory for human rights it is, or was, a one-man band, Rami Abdul Rahman, run from his house in Coventry, who was saying exactly what the western powers wanted to hear and was appropriately-funded, like Eliot Higgins and Snopes.

He is against enforced coercion of the systematic vaccination of the population of the U.K. And he would defend the rights of people to not take the ‘vaccine’.

He discusses how fear is used to coerce people, democracy tends toward despotism and there is no obligation to comply with a ‘law’ just because it is a law.

He is against the current rules because they disrespect individual choice.

The lessons he has derived by observing the particular way things have gone during this epidemic are:

  • Governments should not influence opinion by promoting fear in a technical area which many people could understand, but, in practice don’t.
  • Governments should not treat information as a tool for manipulating public behaviour
  • Governments should be calmer than the majority of their Citizens and be completely objective
  • Governments dealing with scientific issues should not allow themselves to be influenced by a single caucus of scientists
  • Governments should always test what they are being told, in a way that , for instance, judges test expert opinion by producing a counter-expert and working out which set of views stacks up best.

Lord Sumption is a very wise and learned Citizen utterly worth listening to.

Sumption is well-informed and confronts us with the essence of the personal dilemma confronting us all in the matter of mandatory this or that.
He clearly realizes that we have to face our own individuality and live with the consequences of our choices, and he also clearly realizes – and regrets – that the risk of despotic government is with us.

The video is an interesting journey through various views on democracy and its frailty, and Sumption doesn’t expect us, or even think it would be healthy for us, to make the same choices he would make himself.

He’s a thoroughly reasonable man – easy to listen to, yet a good listener himself, and I learned quite a few things from listening to him, BUT, towards the end, I had the overwhelming feeling that something important was missing from his argument.

In particular, his apparent acceptance of the idea of vaccine passports shows that he has no idea of the entirely justifiable qualms people have about the actual content of this particular ‘vaccine’ or even its legitimacy as an adequately tested health measure.
If I know that Robert Kennedy Junior insists that he is not an anti-vaxxer, but an anti-unsafe/untested vaxxer, then why does Lord Sumption not know that?
Like Kennedy, I have had my share of vaccines, dating from a time when everybody believed that doctors knew what they were doing and that they did not profit enormously from prescribing huge quantities of various substances from the big drugs companies.
But now there are alarming signs that some of our ‘medical experts’ are actually weak-minded, superstitious witch-doctors, who would happily go into a voodoo trance if Big Pharma told them it would help sales.

Sumption claims to sympathize with, and support people who might choose to refuse ‘the vaccine’, but he offers them only the regretful observation that they will have to live with the wretched consequences of their choice.
I would say that he should inform himself on the very good reasons people might have for refusing this frantically-cobbled-together concoction, and turn his sharp eye instead upon the forces encouraging and supporting outright evil in our so-called representatives.

He does indeed mention ‘fear’, but there is a difference between an educated, scientifically literate person fearing that he is under pressure to be a human guinea pig in trials for what is, to all intents and purposes, an untested jab, and a layman without any scientific background at all being afraid at the mere sight of a doctor’s white coat.
The law MUST support the former person, and ensure that there are NO negative consequences for him at all if he refuses to take part.

Thanks for the reply, but to be honest, I’m not remotely interested in Sumption. About 6 months ago I watched a shortish video of him, but he just seemed to be avoiding saying anything of any significance. It is true that we face a binary choice, but it was defined best by Vigano nearly a year ago, and it is mandatory simply because we have been forced into it. The other action which I consider mandatory is that set out by Harold Pinter in 2005. If you find anything of Sumption’s addressing either, I’ll be happy to read it.

I apologize for letting off steam, rather than replying in a normal fashion to you.
I regretfully agree with you about Sumption.
I think he is sincere enough, and he makes a lot of valid points about the nature of people and the weaknesses of democracy, but that doesn’t mean his intimate contact with elite society has not removed him from the real world nevertheless.
That being the case, he could accidentally create many obstacles to the establishment of any new system which might better represent modern people – people who have no use for the likes of kings, queens, lords or ladies.
That nonsense has truly had its day, steeped as it is in history of the most deplorable kind.
If Aristotle was aware of democracy’s common fate way before Christ’s time, we really should be wondering in the 21st Century whether or not some of our best minds couldn’t come up with something a bit more up-to-date for our own use – perhaps even something specifically fashioned for the job and the circumstances at hand…?

His comments about the vaccine around the 34 minute mark are pretty horrible. His argument is that people will need to get vaccinated to appease the fearful.

The ’34’ minute mark is sandwiched between many excellent sentences where Lord Sumption specifically references the governments patently obvious one sided view of the ‘epidemic’ and the fearful resposes foisted on the public at large.

He specifically states that the whole world should NOT submit to the fearful BUT come to their own conclusions.

Fortunately the vast majority of intelligent commenters in the world at large are capable of deeper critical thinking and are supportive of well considered positions.

Perhaps you should listen to what he says with less preconceived prejudice.

Document from the National Education Association:

https://www.nea.org/advocating-for-change/new-from-nea/nea-cdc-guidance-good-first-step-now-its-time-action

Note the “Key Takeaways”

1. Five mitigation strategies are essential: masks, social distance, hand washing, healthy school buildings, and a system of testing, tracing and quarantining.

2. The CDC calls for resources to overcome longstanding inequities in schools.

3. NEA President Becky Pringle: Lawmakers need to be able to look educators, students, and parents in the eyes and ensure that they are safe.

The “inequities” gives the requisite leftist spin on how many schools are losing out on these paternal safety measures, “especially those attended by Black, brown, indigenous, and poor white students”.

Note also that bit about how “lawmakers” (read – all staff) “need to be able to look educators, students, and parents in the eyes and ensure that they are safe”. The scare has gone out 24/7 for almost a year now, the general public have been whipped up into hysteria – and these are the parents you will have to placate. No system of ferocious disciplinary terror could be tighter or more inescapable.  

Note also the five “essential” strategies:

Requiring the “universal and correct use of masks” by everyone in all settings;

These are insufferable – and I know since I am called on to wear them constantly whilst at work and I find myself furtively pulling the mask forward as much as I think I can get away with to gulp for air. Bear in mind that this is supposed to be applied to children!

Strictly enforcing physical distancing of at least six feet if community transmission rates are substantial or high and to “the greatest extent possible” where rates are lower;

Note how that “greatest extent possible” makes a nonsense of the distinction between high and low rates i.e. even when the rates are lower, physical distancing is to be applied to “the greatest extent possible”. And bear in mind again that we are talking about children.

Requiring hand-washing and respiratory etiquette and providing the necessary supplies and training; 

Implanting obsessive compulsive hand washing into the minds of children.

Cleaning and maintaining healthy facilities, which includes disinfection and ventilation;

Contact tracing in combination with isolation and quarantine.

Since, from the internet definition, “Contact tracing for COVID-19 requires identifying people who may have been exposed to COVID-19 and following them up daily for 14 days from the last point of exposure”, such tracing can be highly applicable. We can expect frequent scares in every school. Which adds a psychological aspect to the foregoing physical intrusions. Children, watch each other. You never know who has it.

It will be interesting to see what the next few generations will look like.

Macron ‘suggested’, that there should be a ‘re-engagement’ in the middle-east, immediately after New Year.

His regime has been trying to escalate anti-muslim feelings in France…to the point where Darmanin (who published a book about about it about three weeks ago) forced Marine Le Pen to defend the right to religious freedom on mainstream TV.

The French equivalent of MI6 have gone on French TV and said that they are looking at moving into the Levante and Africa, East and West…as far south as the Congo.

Not many countries are so guilty of war crimes after WW2 as the Big 5 that I named. And of these 5 extortion-racket hoodlums, the biggest goon was the Man from Uncle. “I’m thinking of Rhwanda, Cambodia, Korea.”

Ruanda: Clinton, POTU$A 1990s, stirred up civil war in Ruanda and Congo to control mineral-rich central Africa

Cambodia and Vietnam: Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon, POTU$As 1960s to 1970s, dropped more bombs than in WW2. “We had to destroy them to save them from Communism”.

Korea: Truman, POTU$A 1945. “To save them from Communism we bombed until there was nothing left to bomb”.

Your country is one of the Big 5, linked to London and Israel by Anglo-Zionazi-Capitalist tentacles; but, being by far the biggest goon physically, Uncle $cam ranks far above little Izzie in sheer magnitude of war crime. So you are right; there are bigger war criminals than Israel — but not many, and the other 4 regimes are all “friends of Israel”, thick as thieves. Vote Communist in the next election — otherwise yours will be a a wasted vote: a vote for war crime — as in every U$ election since 1945.

If only the international community would challenge and condemn Emperor Xi Jinping like this. 3m Uigyur Muslims, Tibetans and dissidents are imprisoned in CCP concentration camps, where they are subject to gang rape, torture, sterilisation, slave labour, murder, and even the sale of their vital organs. Uigyur mosques and graveyards have been bulldozed and obliterated in what is a slow genocide against them, and against any Chinese minority not bowing to the Emperor. Among our brave Western leaders, only Trump highlighted all this horror and actually imposed sanctions against the import of surgical masks produced by Muslim slaves. I imagine Puppet Biden has already lifted them, or has been told to do so ASAP.

No, Biden represents a major break from the chaos caused by Trump. Slow Joe, an exceptionally talented career politician since the 1960s, has firmly ended all silly talk of swamp-draining. DC politicians and their corporate friends are returning to normal activities, albeit still afraid of their novel election techniques being questioned by irksome independent journalists. That would help explain the huge walls and fences now back in fashion and protecting honest US politicians in DC from the evil US people.

A little humor:

Little Akio…..
 
The teacher said, “Let’s begin by reviewing some American History. Who said ‘Give me Liberty , or give me Death’?”

She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Little Akio, a bright foreign exchange student from Japan , who had his hand up:
 
“Patrick Henry, 1775,” he said.

“Very good! — Who said, ‘Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth’?”

Again, no response except from Little Akio:
 
“Abraham Lincoln, 1863.”

“Excellent!” said the teacher continuing, “Let’s try one a bit more difficult — Who said, ‘Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country’?”

Once again, Akio’s was the only hand in the air and he said: “John F. Kennedy, 1961.”

The teacher snapped at the class, “Class, you should be ashamed of yourselves, Little Akio isn’t from this country and he knows more about our history than you do.”

She heard a loud whisper: “F_ _ k the Japs.”

“Who said that? — I want to know right now!? she angrily demanded.

Little Akio put his hand up, “General MacArthur, 1945.”

At that point, a student in the back said, “I’m gonna puke.’ The teacher glares around and asks, ‘All right! — Now who said that?”
 
Again, Little Akio says, “George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991.”

Now furious, another student yells, “Oh yeah? — Suck this!”

Little Akio jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts to the teacher, “Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!”

Now with almost mob hysteria someone said, “You little shit! — If you say anything else — I’ll kill you!”

Little Akio frantically yells at the top of his voice, “Michael Jackson to the children testifying against him, 2004.”

The teacher fainted. As the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, “Oh shit, We’re screwed!”

Little Akio said quietly, “The American people, November 4, 2020.”

Trump the American started no new wars and did a lot to end or scale down existing ones, as he had promised voters in 2016. He also got at least 5 unique peace deals signed and tried to end the hated role of the US as global policeman’. Sadly, the US establishment and US leftists hated and opposed him more than they did any other US President. Now, under their preferred president, senile puppet Biden, the US military-industrial complex and closely-related DC swamp is safely back in control and business.

My town here in South Brasil is fully locked down this week because hospitals really can’t cope. We are suffering badly with the Amazonian mutation, which my doctors tell me is indeed much more infectious and serious than the original virus. Our most effective treatments, HCQ and Ivermectin (neither is banned here, thank god), also appear less effective than before (HCQ, zinc and an antibiotic cured me and my wife of the first wave of covid in about a week). Having said all that, no way would I want any experimental and unnecessary vaccines from AstraZeneca or other big pharma company.

The Wuhan team collected and stored 1000s of deadly viruses. Have they now been destroyed or just redeployed? Could another pathogen ‘escape’ at some point? It’s highly possible, especially as our China-friendly big pharma companies are already talking up the need for yearly vaccine updates and new pandemics. We may never know for sure, but it’s sure that most of us never forget the monstrous regime we are talking about here, except the CCP’s 1000s of online shills, obviously. Moreover, Covid19 has been identified as artificial by various top scientists, all mysteriously removed from YouTube and other big tech platforms. Yet those denying such theories never get censored. Can anyone really see such behaviour as intended to protect the poor plebs rather than the mega-rich corporates and beholden politicians?

I remember how people in Wuhan appeared to be dropping dead in the streets, convulsing on their stretchers, and even getting welded into their homes. Yet none of that has ever happened anywhere else. I smell a very big rat or maybe bat. Also weird is how such dramatic images flooded the entire western MSM, when almost all news stories from China are very tightly censored and produced by the CCP, with its gigantic global army of online propagandists. It’s very hard not to conclude that this was a masterful communist propaganda operation designed to panic the world and earn strategic and economic advantage. China is now booming, western economies face economic disaster. I can see the hands of the CCP, Bill Gates and their puppet WHO in all this, but not those of the CIA and certainly not those of Trump. Those posters sympathetic to China must be welcoming the firmly pro-China agenda of Joe Biden.

Over the decades, many Normals have informed me in a sort of pitying “tough love” way that I tend to “overthink” things.

Since “thinking” doesn’t come naturally to Normals, they don’t use the whole expression “… “‘overthink’ things to a fault”. For them, “overthinking” is inherently a fault.

This may explain my confusion over that video posted here somewhere of the guard or monitor “screening” people by waving some unidentified hand-held device over their outstretched arms.

Ah Yes the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights was, if my memory serves me well, based in Coventry in the UK’s Midlands. SOHR is/was run by Syrian Sunni Muslim Rami Abdulrahman from his home in Coventry where he owns a clothes shop. But maybe he has gone up in the world. It is quite possible that the esteemed gentleman saw a gap in the market – not the clothes market of course but the spook market – and fed his rubbish to the west’s media outlets who swallowed it whole without any attempt to establish the authenticity. But hey, that the customary MSM when reporting from war zones in which they frame the narrative. Easy money for Mr Abdulrahman I would think.

Oh, the guardians of our delicate sensibilities are really coming out in force now. You’ll know about Van’s latest album. Well have a look here:

https://www.insidehook.com/article/music/van-morrison-latest-record-project

Can you believe this bit?:

“Rolling Stone reports that at least one of the songs, “Dead Beat Saturday Night” is also about life in lockdown. (Lyrics include “No life, no gigs, no choice, no voice.”) Others like “Stop Bitching, Do Something,” “Where Have All the Rebels Gone?” and “They Own the Media” seem like they’re also bound to be problematic. We’ll have to wait to find out who exactly “they” is referring to in the latter, but even if it’s not relying on old anti-Semitic stereotypes, the idea that any singular group of people “owns the media” is a dangerous myth.”

The anti-Semitic slur again? Oh I get it – any suggestion that there might be people up there who are planning to advance their agenda at the expense of everyone else is to be depicted as “inherently anti-Semitic”!  

There’s a slagging off of the newly released track. The track itself seems wondrously droll to me and even the kind of thing that Mark E Smith might do if he was still here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2BmTGWb55M

(It’s better if you hear it without seeing the lyrics. When he sings, “in the present” I thought he was singing “in the prison”. Perhaps that’s intentional?)

So what does concerned moral guardian say?:

“…that should be reason for anyone who believes science is real to worry.”

Anyone who believes “science” is real? Ah “Science” – we shall have no other idols but you!

Oh I love those concerned moral guardian types. From the article above:

Why We Should Be Wary of Van Morrison’s “Latest Record Project”

With song titles like “They Control the Media” and “Why Are You on Facebook?” we’re not expecting great things

I presume, from the fact that our worried soul is so nervous over the word “they”, that it’s OK to use words like “we” and “our”. Perhaps we will be told that it is scientifically verifiable that the words “they” and “them” are inherently anti-Semitic. Don’t forget that Van – who is obvioulsy a Nazi – used to be in a band called Them. I rest my case!

bonny stiernberg…. says it all don’t you think ?…..

here you go:
Originally published in the Los Angeles Times – December 19, 2008 by Joel Stein
I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22% of Americans now believe “the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews,” down from nearly 50% in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood.
How deeply Jewish is Hollywood? When the studio chiefs took out a full-page ad in the Los Angeles Times a few weeks ago to demand that the Screen Actors Guild settle its contract, the open letter was signed by: News Corp. President Peter Chernin (Jewish), Paramount Pictures Chairman Brad Grey (Jewish), Walt Disney Co. Chief Executive Robert Iger (Jewish), Sony Pictures Chairman Michael Lynton (surprise, Dutch Jew), Warner Bros. Chairman Barry Meyer (Jewish), CBS Corp. Chief Executive Leslie Moonves (so Jewish his great uncle was the first prime minister of Israel), MGM Chairman Harry Sloan (Jewish) and NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker (mega-Jewish). If either of the Weinstein brothers had signed, this group would have not only the power to shut down all film production but to form a minyan with enough Fiji water on hand to fill a mikvah.
The person they were yelling at in that ad was SAG President Alan Rosenberg (take a guess). The scathing rebuttal to the ad was written by entertainment super-agent Ari Emanuel (Jew with Israeli parents) on the Huffington Post, which is owned by Arianna Huffington (not Jewish and has never worked in Hollywood.)
The Jews are so dominant, I had to scour the trades to come up with six Gentiles in high positions at entertainment companies. When I called them to talk about their incredible advancement, five of them refused to talk to me, apparently out of fear of insulting Jews. The sixth, AMC President Charlie Collier, turned out to be Jewish.
As a proud Jew, I want America to know about our accomplishment. Yes, we control Hollywood. Without us, you’d be flipping between “The 700 Club” and “Davey and Goliath” on TV all day.
So I’ve taken it upon myself to re-convince America that Jews run Hollywood by launching a public relations campaign, because that’s what we do best. I’m weighing several slogans, including: “Hollywood: More Jewish than ever!”; “Hollywood: From the people who brought you the Bible”; and “Hollywood: If you enjoy TV and movies, then you probably like Jews after all.”
I called ADL Chairman Abe Foxman, who was in Santiago, Chile, where, he told me to my dismay, he was not hunting Nazis. He dismissed my whole proposition, saying that the number of people who think Jews run Hollywood is still too high. The ADL poll, he pointed out, showed that 59% of Americans think Hollywood execs “do not share the religious and moral values of most Americans,” and 43% think the entertainment industry is waging an organized campaign to “weaken the influence of religious values in this country.”
That’s a sinister canard, Foxman said. “It means they think Jews meet at Canter’s Deli on Friday mornings to decide what’s best for the Jews.” Foxman’s argument made me rethink: I have to eat at Canter’s more often.
“That’s a very dangerous phrase, ‘Jews control Hollywood.’ What is true is that there are a lot of Jews in Hollywood,” he said. Instead of “control,” Foxman would prefer people say that many executives in the industry “happen to be Jewish,” as in “all eight major film studios are run by men who happen to be Jewish.”
But Foxman said he is proud of the accomplishments of American Jews. “I think Jews are disproportionately represented in the creative industry. They’re disproportionate as lawyers and probably medicine here as well,” he said. He argues that this does not mean that Jews make pro-Jewish movies any more than they do pro-Jewish surgery. Though other countries, I’ve noticed, aren’t so big on circumcision.
I appreciate Foxman’s concerns. And maybe my life spent in a New Jersey-New York/Bay Area-L.A. pro-Semitic cocoon has left me naive. But I don’t care if Americans think we’re running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them.

Absent from this article – and I’m sure all the articles from which this one was drawn – is any mention of the poor dumb slobs who have to foot the bill: the American people. I guess by 2021 it’s just taken for granted the people will strap on their war bonnets and hop on board the war bandwagon.

And, of course, that’s exactly the case. Especially now. COVID may not have literally infected the people; but figuratively it’s a raging pandemic: it’s made people half crazy. One thing that’s all too noticeable is how fast everyone is driving these days.

People are taking out their anger and frustration where they always do: on the highways and through their military. Best advice if you come to “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave”: Look Out!

It’s a rite of passage for all incoming U.S. administrations to fire off a few million dollars worth of ordnance. I specifically recall Obama doing it upon the start of his second term in 2013. Trump did it in 2017.

Isn’t it a way of reimbursing Raytheon and others for their hearty campaign contributions?

The rest is history. At the end of World War 2 the U.S. corporations had grown so fat over the past 25 years that they decided they could not return to a peacetime economy. Thus the war economy was continued, with no return to America’s historic periods of isolationism. Its relations with neighbours overseas became one of warlord and occupying force, while society at home was relentlessly militarized.

Warfare-to-welfare is the consequence of a wartime economy, as is State Corporatism.

Over in Europe something different happened because many of its countries were forbidden to militarize or were too broke to do so. Nonetheless, in 1944 seeing the war lost, Germany’s corporations and their European partners decided that they would not go down with The Reich, or with the other bankrupt for that matter. Instead, with the active support of the U.S., including secret financing of the founding fathers of the European Community, they extended the Reich’s State Corporatist model across Europe. Rather than crushing national borders with tanks they rose above them and set up a political system that is run by and for corporations, with no democratic role for people other as powerless observers.

The Great Reset may be the next step, bringing on board the Asian countries, in particular China, the quibble this time being the integrity of the U.S. itself.

But you know all this.

Japan is already there and has been for at least a couple of decades. During the late 1980s, corporations and traditional Japanese conservatives were quietly and covertly pushing to get rid of certain restrictions on Japan’s military and restrictions on the corporations supporting it. They had the full support, complete with sob stories, of the occupying US military and of the US diplomats in Japan.

Surely the newly-crowned chief must still perform a ritual sacrifice, the ordnance taking the place of some expensive hardwoods, frankincense and myrrh? The brown bodies, sad to say, taking the place of goats.

We live in a time of intense religiosity or superstition. The turn of a century, let alone millennium, does that to people. To be honest, I’m still getting my head around it.

Superficially we are surrounded with books and talking heads promoting atheism, denouncing “sky fairies” and making all the appropriate noises about freethinking. The badge of “skeptic” or “debunker” is worn with quite some pride — as if it were a guarantor of intellect and insight.

And yet, the true Doubting Thomas is demonized as never before! Thomas, let us recall, did not doubt that the other disciples had seen something but was ultimately driven to check his premises.

Isn’t that in itself a parable for our present age, doubt being origin of discovery, invention and true advancement (I try to avoid the loaded and debased word progress)?

The skeptics embrace their religion of Scientism, from which they receive, like tablets of stone, “The Science”, an immutable solid as improbable as true science is fluid.

The debunkers trail like members of a cult, clutching the robes of their hallowed illuminaries.

The press and even technical journals are full of articles suggesting, with barely disguised urgency, that “deniers” who question this or that dogma should be censored and even prosecuted.

I will not mention the dogmas. We know them well, even as we shiver through ever-colder winters while the windmills at which we are forbidden to tilt, loom, frozen in the still air.

Imagine… to tilt at windmills was once an idiom for fighting imaginary enemies or straw men. Now they are untouchable servants of the gods!

Students of the occult used mirrors to look into the world of spirits. At the heart of all mysteries, the Sun! To whom more than any celestial body we have sacrificed, bowed, and sought his anger to abate, through millennia.

Now we point our mirrors, our solar panels, at the sun and hope, plead, get on our knees and pray that he will bestow on us his rays, so that we may have enough power to sustain our population.

If the sun denies, if the winds blow not fair, we must sacrifice! Reduce the population until the earthly gods are satisfied and until they show us that we have restored the symmetry and harmony of the universe.

The greatest mistake we can make, it seems, is to fight irrationality with logic. But what, then?

Another good example of someone you’d think was an arch-rationalist, greedy and stuffy yes but supremely rational, is Montagu Norman, head of the Bank of England during the Great Depression and the build-up to WW2.

most people sneer at such observation, they are far too rational and ‘modern’ but really they are just ignorant of truths the ‘system’ veils from them.. hence blavatsky and the veil

on a simplistic level most in the ‘establishment’ are members of fraternities and orders.. secret societies if you will.. something seldom referenced yet of huge import, particularly in regards to law and governance.

examine corporate logos for symbolic reference..

black stones, and rocks figure prominently as does goddess ishtar/astarte.. all connected with saturn..

Also Britain’s current finance minister who is being groomed as ‘prime minister-in-waiting’ — Rishi Sunak.

Goldman Sachs connections, of course. He set up his private investment partnership in 2010 with capital of GBP 536 Million. He named it Theleme Partners.

What’s interesting about Rishi Sunak “finding religion” or at least Thelema, is that for decades we’ve been told that Satanic Panic is a an obsession of emotionally-unhinged conspiracy theorists. It’s just been used to censor the Q-Anon movement and anyone posting videos about pedogate or Haiti or #SaveOURChildren.

“Thelema’s just a joke,” Rishi’s cohort would say. But how often can you keep repeating the same “joke” and still find it hooray-Henry, uproariously funny? Clearly, it is not a joke.

It also comports with what former Dutch banker Ronald Bernard said he witnessed in the the finance industry.

Before Aleister Crowley was François Rabelais, the 16th century writer of Gargantua and Pantagruel, which contains the giant’s Abbey of Thélème.

Gold give us, God forgive us,
And from all woes relieve us;
That we the treasure
May reap of pleasure,
And shun whate’er is grievous,
Gold give us, God forgive us.

The inhabitants of the fictional abbey of Theleme are, of course, are the origin of Crowley’s motto, Do What Thou Wilt

Hello Moneycircus: You mentioned: “Isn’t it a way of reimbursing Raytheon and others for their hearty campaign contributions?” True…

Military contractors have been running the show for over 90 years. The alternate media blames the “elite” without mentioning that the elite fund all military R&D and all illegal international deployments. They do this through ownership of the treasury…

Presidents have repeatedly violated the Constitution since the first employment of the War Powers Act.

The Congress collects their greasy bribes and pensions, and have never impeached any presidents (such as Biden) for being obvious war criminals.

Civilians like to believe that military generals prop up scrawny fagots like Biden, Obama, George Jr, Bill Clinton, George Bush Sr, and all other yes men before them. They bless their stupid children for “having the courage” to join the military… It’s all bullshit…

It is almost exclusively designed as a multi-national corporate welfare program for corporate deadbeats. It’s probably keeping Boeing and a few other large corporations alive, at this point. War has become necessary, I think, for maintaining the current form of American capitalism and keeping multi-national corporations in power in the US.

Lately I have been watching the third season of Fargo on Netflix. I sometimes go on a site called avclub to get a critical overview (which I enjoy disagreeing with). Last night, in relation to an episode, I read this (the names and the plot are not important, it’s the bit about the internet that matters):

“Varga’s unable to find any information about Gloria online. Which fits: given the way the Internet spreads false information, of course the only person qualified to stand up for the truth would stay off of it.”

Well you will find plenty of false information on the net. But the comment above suggests that spreading false information is all the net does. And so, it reinforces the notion that we should turn back to the good old traditional forms of the media i.e. TV, radio and newspapers.

But the truth of the matter, very clearly revealed in retrospect with the arrival of the net, is that these traditional forms are much more easily controlled. Indeed, this traditional media has now been revealed as utterly monolithic and totalitarian. Sure, the net has a lot of crap on it. But it’s our only saviour now.

Kinda OT – although all roads to covid now:

It says a lot when just about the only public figure shouting “Fraud!” over the covid crap is Van Morrison. He has released the track listing of his latest album and look at these titles:

  • “Where Have All The Rebels Gone?”
  • “Psychoanalysts’ Ball”
  • “The Long Con”
  • “Big Lie”
  • “Diabolic Pressure”
  • “Double Agent”
  • “Double Bind”
  • “Breaking The Spell”
  • “Duper’s Delight”
  • “Stop Bitching, Do Something”
  • “Western Man”
  • “They Own The Media”
  • “Why Are You On Facebook?”

This article seems a fairly objective assessment (but watch out for the moronic comments below!):

https://www.irishtimes.com/culture/music/van-morrison-launches-covid-19-legal-action-over-north-s-live-music-ban-1.4463030

In the comment sections, one dickend sums up the emotional blackmail of the whole rotten charade:

“How morally blind is it possible to be — to metaphorically cry “I want my MTV!” in the middle of this deadly pandemic?”

This is the old “Don’t you know there’s a war on?” manoeuvre. “Don’t think about yourself! Don’t even think for yourself! Don’t be selfish! We’re all getting fucked up the arse! So, you just bend over and take it too!” 

And the appropriately named mediaocrity gives us the same device,

“Thoroughly sick and tired at this stage of selfish entitled c**ts who can’t see beyond the end of their own unmasked nose.
Me me me me me me me me me.
Sociopaths.”

Ironic coming from someone who can’t see beyond the end of his own masked nose!

Also note:

“and what will you say to the people or their families who get the virus in a pub or other entertainment business and all the other people they put at risk?”

Yes, if you don’t knuckle down, we’ll be surrounded in mountains of covid baby corpses!

All roads lead to and from “Covid” these days.

I follow Ivor Cummins on Twitter, and he often posts material which shows how abysmally fascistic the Irish government and authorities have become, and how awful the Irish media generally have become, possibly as bad as the UK media. I find it hard to believe that ordinary Irish people are taken in by it, but then I never expected my fellow UK-ers to be so badly taken in by it all.

I was slow to realize that, in this century, the pejorative term “mercenary” had been officially replaced by the Newspeak euphemism “contractor”.

In 2004, Iraqi insurgents attacked a convoy and killed four Blackwater USA employees in Fallujah. The mainstream/corporate mass-media uniformly referred to the deceased as “contractors”. At the time, I ignorantly assumed at first that they were, you know, civilian “contractors” in the usual commercial sense– maybe a couple of electricians, a plumber, and a first-class drywall man.

The euphemism was obviously created by the US government, and promulgated by its mass-media consent manufacturers, to give the sordid “profession” of soldiers-for-hire undeserved respectability and normalcy. To paraphrase hotel toilet-seat wrapper terminology, this locution serves to sanitize them for their protection.

The article quotes Bernie Sanders and could trap the gullible into thinking he’s still one of the good guys. Sanders was completely on-script during the “insurrection” and impeachment debacle. He’s obvious controlled opposition (as is the CFR’s Tulsi Gabbard who’s lined up to replace him when Sanders’ utility is exhausted).

Thanks, MC and Phaeton. I have been chafing under the shackles of Google for a few years. Tried other browsers without satisfaction. Heard about Brave a year ago but was dubious. Shall now try it.

You must have listened to Richie Allen’s phone call with Marie from Belfast. Once we are back to “normal” the shite is really going to hit the fan. Apparently.

It already has hit the fan, unless you were just sitting on millions of dollars or were lucky enough to keep a cushy corporate job.

Well, yes, but what I was referring to was the scenario of the hyper-inflation and financial collapse that could come once the floodgates are open.

When a netflix subscription goes up to $50. a month but your bank has crashed so your payment method is no good. ?

And that $10. loaf of bread has to last you a couple of weeks. Or months. ?
