6. NSO Kill Switch – Israel, Intel Corp & Microsoft, How They Subvert America
by Brendon Lee O’Connell

Edited upload: Aug 8, 2021
Original upload: Jun 2018

NSO Group and Israeli spying is far worse than you can ever imagine. NSO is nothing compared to the fact core R&D for both Microsoft products and Intel Corporation are done in Israel

NSO Group Technologies is an Israeli cyber-intelligence firm primarily known for its proprietary spyware Pegasus, which is capable of remote zero-click surveillance of smartphones.

Thank you Iain and Jesse for a good discussion. So much alt media have very orthodox way of talking about the war, all sharing the same opinions with little difference and ignoring every fact that does not fit their story. I stopped listening to Duran and UK Column and even 21st Century because I do not trust their thinking any more when they say only the same things every day and ignore the questions I am wanting to hear answered. The same questions you ask. Thank you again.

George Santayana and it can be accurately quoted as “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”

Here is a new one just for you.
Those that used bs in the past
are condemned to repeat it.

But I remember your bs.

If you were against the disastrous and illegal and bs propaganda driven
invasion of Iraq (2003) – a horrendous humanitarian disaster –
then you were told that you were supporters of Saddam.

If you were against the oil imperialism attack upon Libya
– a horrendous humanitarian disaster –
you were told that you were a supporter of Gaddafi.

If you were against a war of aggression against Syria
– a horrendous humanitarian disaster –
you were told that you were a supporter of Assad.

There are more, have you forgotten already?

Now, the same elements as above, the same greedy, war profiteering, fascist, warmongering and Neocon elements, have brought us a humanitarian disaster in Ukraine
and if you don’t support them then you are told…
you guessed it, that you are a supporter of Putin.

Your bs was bs then
and it is bs now.

You support the creation of humanitarian disasters,
remember?

No. You are trying to shut down legitimate enquiry for what could be the key to understanding what these criminals are truly doing in Ukraine. Your response deserves to be called out for what it is – childish and pathetic – both to the original commenter and to me – especially concerning such an important topic and lead. Your comment about emotional dysfunction is shocking – I’m tired of emotional dysfunction as standard around here. This is highly insulting to the commenters on OffG, for what is in reality a very good, balanced and quite disciplined comments board with the caveat that it is targeted by 77th or other equivalents who seek to wreck the flow of the conversations, shows a low level of analytical skills and comes across as plain immature, so it seems you are in the wrong job.

Well maybe your suspicions are correct about the ‘new Jerusalem’ thing, but it sounds unlikely, a bit ‘lab leak’, a bit seeded narrative. If this were the case then Russia would need to be complicit, to my mind, since there’s strong evidence they are hanging their own troops out to dry.

As a cautionary note, I think TruNews are part of some planned reveal. For example, they were at Davos 2020 – as invited journalists – and when they returned they started pushing the “pandemic”.

WRT to Igor Berkut, I suspect it’s a Simon Parkes style self-promotion. That he’s picked up some publicly available information and is using it to sell stuff.

Today on TruNews we share an exclusive interview with Russia’s chief rabbi Berel Lazar from the sidelines of the 2020 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. We also discuss President Trump’s comments about the witch hunt impeachment trial, Ivanka Trump’s “inoperable learning record” proposal, and Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff’s answer to the radical socialists who want to eat the rich.

Sure – I watched the presentation after following StraightTalk’s link (you must have fallen off your chair seeing that link if you hadn’t seen it before after what you have posted here lol) – it was maybe the only one in English – and thought it had value for this conversation – maybe for someone who is interested to hear what this is about and see some of the evidence. Brendon O Connell who I think you follow has had a few things to say about Rick Wiles and TruNews at davos. The TruNews clip is what it is – they present evidence clearly, they ask questions, they don’t get carried away, they just arrive at the conclusion that I have arrived at which is that this does appear to have legs and absolutely should be treated as a lead to get to the bottom of the as yet unsolved question of “what is really going on in Ukraine – truly?”. It’s a good intro to this subject. Maybe their (trunews) role is to reveal this – they are not exactly hiding their intentions and if it is real, then at some point they will have to go public with it.

Thanks for highlighting this in your other posts – it needs to be properly examined, researched, scrutinised. If only we could somehow find some investigative journalists who have a platform to publish the research on, haha!

Interesting from the YT links in the twitter link that the whole conversation and everything related to it is in Russian – but this poster/map of Heavenly Jerusalem being presented – is in English?

Igor Berkut fought the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan for the Soviets in the 80s, before running trans-national banks in Texas and Kazakhstan, and creating the MAGA-esque Great Ukraine political party. Why would a Soviet soldier also be a capitalist banker and a Ukrainian politician?

Officially, they were useless and unprepared for their own invasion and Ukrainian guards in Kiev shot down Russian helicopters and kept the invaders out.

Unofficially, it’s a controlled ‘war’ and we’re all looking forward to the Zaporizhzhia nuclear incident that has been foreshadowed for a year, which will lead to new measures of control and oppression, for our own safety.

Perhaps not, but it seems blatantly obvious that they could have cut off a city of 4 million given their tactical advantage of surrounding it. They could also have easily resupplied and strengthened their position.

The Russian forces were behind the lines of the ATF in the Donbass and could have cut off their supply routes; the Russian forces were also positioned in front of the amassed ATF at the same time, sandwiching the bulk of Ukrainian forces, while simultaneously enjoying total air dominance, having supposedly destroyed Ukraine’s air defences.

Now, if you can explain to me why any war machine, badly organised or not, would simply withdraw from that position without any notable military pressure being applied, I’d be fascinated to hear your thoughts.

Likely because they hadn’t destroyed the air defence systems. Nor secured the Donbas.

The recent precision hypersonic missile (Kindzhal) strikes on US Patriot air defence systems in Kiev, would suggest that Russia hasn’t finished with Kiev yet

And there were then and still are vast swathes of the Donbas unconquered. Though Bakhmut will likely fall to the Russians within days.

Secure the Donbas then take Kiev may be the strategy

No point sticking up a flag in Kiev when the armies are elsewhere. Napoleon and Hitler made that mistake with Moscow

Let me give you an example. Customer claims the car runs great but that ocassionally it won’t start. I agree that the problem is likely to be simple but discovering what that problem is can be extremely time consuming. If i had all the time in the world and if the customer didn’t mind paying 50 or a hundred an hour for that time then perhaps the word difficult or challenging or problematic would never come up. Unfortunately, i don’t have all the time for that problem and the customer sure in the hell doesn’t want to pay me indefinitely. You may say I’m just a bad mechanic but i would say to you that the world is filled with imperfect people trying to solve difficult problems with limited time or resources.

Also seems obvious that a byproduct of the war is the degradation of military readiness for the West. Appears US, Britain & EU are sending their weapons to Ukraine so that the Russians can blow them up.

Then there’s the matter of weakening military health thru the vaxx.

And as Sasha Latypova & Katherine Watt point out it’s now LEGAL– under certain circumstances– for foreign troops to act within the US against the citizenry.

I don’t understand why everyone seems to think that the US is so stupid in its efforts at hegemony– seems so obvious that TPTB are deconstructing nationstates– especially those in the West. Hegemony my eye! That’s the cover story.

If America cant handle their own affairs, a new Chinese/European world government gotta do it.

With regard everything being “weird”

For the first few months of the war, I felt largely the same – that none of the accounts made much sense. However, after doing a bit of digging I found there to be coherent accounts which weren’t being presented. Although these accounts describe layers of subterfuge (i.e. “by way of deception”), tend to be somewhat limited in scope, and there remain a few areas of vagueness, once the key elements are unpicked, the overall picture emerges quite clearly.

Wayne Madsen – Israel’s Secret Plan for “Second Israel” in Ukraine
Voltaire Network
December 8, 2014

The role of Jewish figures and that of the State of Israel in the Ukrainian crisis has not gone unnoticed considering that this community represents less than 1 percent of the population. However, a secret report in the hands of the Netanyahu administration confirms that Ashkenazi Jews do not originate from the Levant, but are the descendants of the Khazars. This little-known population founded a Jewish empire in the tenth century on the banks of the Black Sea. Therefore, some Zionists see in Ukraine a possible second Israel. . . .

The evidence that eastern and central European Jews have no historical claim to Palestine has resulted in a flurry of activity in Israel and abroad. . . . some Israelis and Jews abroad are not taking any chances. One of the main reasons why Ukrainian Jewish billionaire tycoon Ihor Kolomoisky, the governor of Ukraine’s Dnipropetrovsk province and citizen of Ukraine, Israel, and Cyprus, is spending tens of millions of dollars on the recruitment of right-wing Ukrainian nationalists and neo-Nazis from other parts of Europe to fight against the Russian-speaking majority in the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine, is a fear that plans to turn Ukraine into a «second Israel» will be derailed. Russia’s protective measures for the Donbass, as well as its incorporation by referendum of Crimea, the latter prized by the resurgent Khazarian Jewish nationalists, threaten the transformation of Ukraine into a second homeland for Ashkenazi Jews who are finding their hold on Israel prime tenuous, at best. . . .

In Ukraine, the so-called «second Israel,» Kolomoisky and Kiev have enlisted a number of ex-Israel Defense Force members in their volunteer battalions, including the Azov Battalion. One of the Israeli units is known as the «Blue Helmets of Maidan» and is commanded by an Israeli using the pseudonym «Delta». If Israel did not have a vested interest in expanding its influence in Ukraine it could easily prevent these units from going to Ukraine. . . .

Some Russian speakers in the Donbass are wary of the intentions of pro-Israelis in the Kiev government. Oddly, Kolomoisky has recruited a number of neo-Nazis from western Ukraine and Europe to fight in his battalions whose right-wing organizations have always subscribed to the notion of a future «battle royale» between Russia and the remnants of Khazaria in Israel, Ukraine, Poland, and the Republic of Georgia to avenge Khazaria’s defeat in the 11th century by the Russian Empire.

Does this explanation feel a little pat though? What is Israel planning to do with all the native and patriotic Ukrainians who currently own all that lovely fertile farmland? Displace them? Won’t this have huge and calamitous knock on effects? If Israeli/US interests are so often claimed to be one and the same, presumably the Russians aren’t going to enjoy this? If so, why are Russia reacting so mildly with this ‘SMO’ and pausing/withdrawing and allowing Ukraine time to rearm, drawing the whole conflict out? If Israel is essentially on their doorstep in this proxy war, how does this add up!?

The world is going to be depopulated. They may make a few token references to it, but they’re not particularly concerned about farming. Moreover, they’re only interested in the five oblasts and maybe Crimea – so there’s still plenty of space for the proles in the rest of Ukraine.

That, of course, was the original plan, but it may now be thrown into doubt given the national revival.

Russia get Crimea and Donbass. Israel and Western Allies get not all but most of their ancient Khazaria. Poland get some of West Ukraine. Politics.

This is what is feasible and controllable at the moment with the global power structures in force.

If Israeli/US interests are so often claimed to be one and the same, presumably the Russians aren’t going to enjoy this?

With respect to Israel and Palestine, there are multiple claims, allegiances and agenda – and this multiplicity creates potential for serious conflict. A significant constituency which seems to be overlooked in the west is that of Israeli citizens with Russian and Soviet ethnicity. It should be noted, however, that the figures quoted below don’t distinguish between Israelis of Ukrainian rather than Russian ethnicity.

Netanyahu has tried to present an appearance of neutrality with respect to the war, but like Putin and Xi, he’s very much aligned with the Belt & Road project (see below).

https://web.archive.org/web/20210520115220/https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2019/09/18/israel-is-a-russian-speaking-country-putin-says-a67337
Sep. 18, 2019
Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that Israel is a Russian-speaking state and that the two countries share a common history and extensive family ties. Israel is home to the world’s largest population of Russian Jews, a large portion of whom emigrated there from the former Soviet Union in the 1990s. About 17% of Israel’s population is Russian-speaking, research has said.

Israel is home to the world’s largest population of Russian-speaking Jews, with ethnic Russian Jews as well as Jews from former Soviet countries making up some 17% of the country’s population. The community, which has its own distinct cultural and political identity, has been influential in Israeli society in the three decades since the first wave of mass immigration from the former Soviet Union.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/07/06/israels-growing-ties-china-are-testing-its-relationship-with-us
July 7, 2021

The Biden administration, like the Trump administration, has recognized China as the United States’ chief national security threat and geostrategic rival. Despite political polarization in other areas, Democrats and Republicans support hardening U.S. policy toward China on matters including military posture, trade and investment, technology controls, cross-border data restrictions and academic exchange.

U.S. leaders are urging foreign friends to make similar adjustments to protect themselves — and their U.S. ties — from Beijing’s theft, espionage, coercion and other malign activity. President Biden, on his recent trip to Europe, underscored the China challenge, declaring, “We have to discredit those who believe that the age of democracy is over.”

Yet U.S. worries about China have been prominently belittled in Israel: Yossi Cohen, who stepped down last month as Israel’s powerful spy chief, said in a June 7 speech, “I do not understand what the Americans want from China. If anyone understands it, he should explain it to me. . . . China is not opposed to us and is not our enemy.”

Cohen’s air of unconcern reflects more than a decade of increasing ties between Israel and China. On two visits to Beijing as prime minister, Netanyahu highlighted Israel’s interest in exporting technology to China. He also supported an Israeli role in Beijing’s “One Belt One Road” global infrastructure strategy and a bilateral free-trade agreement. “We are your perfect junior partner,” Netanyahu told Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2017. “I believe this is a marriage made in heaven.”

Oh I am no fan of the BBC Sam, as the posts I made about them on here confirm that.

Nevertheless, Germany, most of the NATO countries have provided the US/UK/NATO City of London controlled Ukrainian Nazi regime with many many 100s of tanks some of which such as the Challenger tanks fire depleted uranium tip shells which lead to longer term health problems for the population as Iraq and Serbia have discovered.

Moreover, they have been systematically increasing the stakes with the weapns systems which I have provided evidence for. The next logical step is NATO uniformed soldiers on the ground ( they are in the Ukraine already in UKraine uniforms).

The reality is there is a very great danger of an escalation which leads to a situation which will be catastrophic for mankind.

I cited these MSM outlets for convenience due to the fact I have to do other tasks ie walking the dog, shopping, putting bins etc.

In addition, have criticised them numerous times about Covid as my numerous previous post on this site will bear witness to this.

However, you seem to have overlooked that sites such as UK Column, 21st Century Wire and independent journalists such as Eva Bartlett plus writers have all provided a great deal of evidence which demonstrates the dramatic escalation of the scale plus sophistication of the weaponry pouring into the Ukraine.

If you study modern European history, it is noteworthy that the 2 world wars were preceded by a dramatic increase in arms build up.

We shall see, although please preface future MSM links as ‘view with caution’ to keep things consistent, and ideally stick to true alt. media like Bartlett, Beeley etc who I think do their due diligence far, far, far more than the MSM, whether I agree with their analysis or not.

I would like to point out, if this was planned to escalate into another iteration of Covid, with co-commitment shortages, travel restrictions, economic relandscaping and authoritarian clampdowns, then accumulating a cache of military hardware in Ukraine would be a straightforward part of the ruse, no more difficult to orchestrate than many parts of the globally coordinated Covid rollout.

I know we all have the idea that military conflict can never be primarily Theatre, or orchestrated to anything but a superficial extent, but what if this was all a bit more Orwellian ‘perpetual war’ than we thought?

I do hope I’m right, since your angle involves actual global threat of annihilation and mine doesn’t. Lol Shouldn’t you be wishing my angle is right too?

I found myself making similar points to Covid adherents many times during 2020-22. 🤷‍♂️

In addition lets not forget, the lengths they went to prevent its publication.

It serves to demonstrate that this group believed and still believe the most efficient method to achieve their goals is wars.

WW1, WW2 should be suffice to illustrate this point.

Thanks Victor G. Offg’s undoubted success and popularity as one of the most busy and active comment forums in genuine alt. news is directly linked to our admin policy.

Whereas some sites use a more passive and more clandestine approach to manage their forums, which might involve a stricter policy of removing OT content, offg takes a more spirited and more hands on approach. We choose to engage, challenge and even spar with our community, on equal terms. It keeps debate sharp and quickly reveals obstructive, trolling behaviour without the need to remove that content. This approach allows us to publish a much wider scope of comment without seeming to condone it, preserving the spirit of freedom of speech that might otherwise get lost.

This approach involves a highly skilled team of mods.

It is also true that this forum is what commenters make of it. Meaning, if they choose to make it a jarring and negative place, it will be so. If they choose to make it a supportive and understanding place, it will be so.

The higher the level of aggression, the more this affects the quality of discussion, and communication suffers. Therefore we always encourage readers not to be needlessly bitchy. 😅 it inevitably spirals down to school-level shit slinging 😅

Saying that, we hope you enjoy the free alt news playground that Offg provides BTL. It benefits many people and I for one am proud to be a part of it. A2

Tragedy and Hope was published in 1966, it’s likely the situation has developed in new directions since then, but anyhow this (from your link) sounds exactly like what Iain Davies and OG talk about in the new “multipolarity”.

Quigley informs us that this wealthy “Anglophile network” cooperates with any group that can help it achieve its goal.6 (This includes Communists, which, on the surface, would seem to be the sworn enemy of super-wealthy capitalist conspirators.)”

I can see such a group evolving to exploit and nullify the east-west divide just as much as they do the Left-Right divide. You assume as a given the east hasn’t been absorbed into this machinery, but there’s a lot of evidence that it has.

The question of the influence, whether genuine or not, of Soviet Russia and Communist ideas in American policy and the contextual significance of this influence in Quigley’s understanding can be usefully read from Chapter XVII: Nuclear Rivalry and the Cold War: American Atomic Supremacy, 1945-1950 of the 1966 edition of Tragedy and Hope, discussing the immediate postwar era in which beliefs in this influence started to flourish – you’ll find there’s a lot of nuances and context there, and that convictions hold by Communist mindsets expressing human hopes in a better life condition to mankind, may perfectly be shared with avowed capitalists – IMO, the truth of the matter is that capitalist mode of production wants the same ends as any other mode of production, but Communism is the one last mode where humanity had learned the right means to reach those ends, the previous modes having been unimproved, faulty means to the same commendable ends. The following is a quote from the author himself in that chapter:

“This radical Right fairy tale, which is now an accepted folk myth in many groups in America, pictured the recent history of the United States, in regard to domestic reform and in foreign affairs, as a well-organized plot by extreme Left-wing elements, operating from the White House itself and all the chief avenues of publicity in the United States, to destroy the American way of life, based on private enterprise, laissez faire, and isolationism, in behalf of alien ideologies of Russian Socialism and British cosmopolitanism (or internationalism). This plot, if we are to believe the myth, worked through such avenues of publicity as The New York Times and the Herald Tribune, the Christian Science Monitor and the Washington Post, the Atlantic Monthly and Harper’s Magazine and had at its core the wild-eyed and bushy-haired theoreticians of Socialist Harvard and the London School of Economics. It was determined to bring the United States into World War II on the side of England (Roosevelt’s first love) and Soviet Russia (his second love) in order to destroy every finer element of American life and, as part of this consciously planned scheme, invited Japan to attack Pearl Harbor, and destroyed Chiang Kai-shek, all the while undermining America’s real strength by excessive spending and unbalanced budgets.

“This myth, like all fables, does in fact have a modicum of truth. There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960’s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies (notably to its belief that England was an Atlantic rather than a European Power and must be allied, or even federated, with the United States and must remain isolated from Europe), but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known.”

“The original purpose of these groups was to seek to federate the English-speaking world along lines laid down by Cecil Rhodes (1853—1902) and William T. Stead (1849-1912), and the money for the organizational work came originally from the Rhodes Trust.”

This network having expanded after WWI:

“The chief aims of this elaborate, semi-secret organisation were largely commendable: to coordinate the international activities and outlooks of all the English-speaking world into one (which would largely, it is true, be that of the London group); to work to maintain the peace; to help backward, colonial, and underdeveloped areas to advance toward stability, law and order, and prosperity along lines somewhat similar to those taught at Oxford and the University of London (especially the School of Economics and the Schools of African and Oriental Studies).”

“It was this group of people, whose wealth and influence so exceeded their experience and understanding, who provided much of the framework of influence which the Communist sympathizers and fellow travelers took over in the United States in the i93o’s. It must be recognized that the power that these energetic Left-wingers exercised was never their own power or Communist power but was ultimately the power of the international financial coterie, and, once the anger and suspicions of the American people were aroused, as they were by 1950, it was a fairly simple matter to get rid of the Red sympathizers.”

They spent 6 months during world war two fighting for the area around Stalingrad. Obviously a lot more was being fought for at the same time but a large city with buildings represents a fortress. In olden times it was common to have lengthy seiges of castles. This is still a limited war but each action or battle in itself can be lengthy. Apparently several hundred thousand have already died in the Ukraine war…. Hardly a small or limited number.

Britain has been insidiously preparing the conditions to break her rival Germany since the end of te XIXth century; the first really noticeable event was the Moroccan crisis in 1905; similar events followed more or less regularly, reaching a head in 1914. By then everything was ready, and they did break Germany.

The intent to make Germany literally bankrupt was fully established already in 1905; but the configuration of the world (alliances, preparedness of the different would-be participant countries to wage war, economic conditions, propaganda, question of neutral countries, and so on and so forth) was suitable to realise that intent only in 1914.

As early as 1911 the principal position for British fleet had been changed from Plymouth (facing France, the secular rival, but the Fachoda incident of 1898 showed that it was no longer a concern to Britain) to Dover and Rosyth (Scotland) surveiling the northern and southern entrances of the North Sea and both facing Germany.
