Trump’s Last Hurrah?

THE SAKER • NOVEMBER 25, 2020 

There seems to be a quasi consensus that Trump will not prevail and that Biden and Harris will get into the White House no matter what. To my surprise, even the Russian media seems to be considering that the Trump presidency is over.

Yet, I am not so sure at all.

Why?

Because at this point in time, I think that it would fair to conclude that anybody actually willing to look at what has been revealed by this election will have to agree that this election was stolen, rigged, falsified – chose your expression – and that going to the courts to challenge this obscene miscarriage of the democratic process is a fundamental civil right and something which any democrat (small “d”) should support.

And yet, because we live in a media-created pseudo-reality in which absolutely crucial things like the rule of law seem to have become secondary to ideological imperatives, no matter how extreme, there are those who simply refuse to see the obvious. Yes, the 9/11 false flag trained the western societies well and many now simply lack the lucidity and courage to face reality.

Courts, however, are bound by the rule of law, at least in theory, and don’t have the luxury to simply pretend like crucial evidence presented to them simply does not exist.

True, the lower, state, courts are unlikely to resist the pressure put upon them to come up with the “right” conclusions, but never say never – all it takes is one single principled judge and Trump or, more accurately, the Giuliani team, might get the break they need. Still, it is pretty obvious that Giuliani’s real hopes are with the Supreme Court. This makes sense, local judges are much easy to influence and sway than Supreme Court Justices who are unassailable and who realize that they will make history, the only question being is: how till they go down in history books, as a “profile in courage” or as impotent cowards who betrayed their oath?

I will say that I am, to put it mildly, not impressed by Trump’s demeanor during these crucial days: he completely ceded the narrative to his opponents (a couple of incoherent and poorly phrased “tweets” do not qualify). True, Trump never displayed the qualities of a real leader, so this is hardly surprising.

Giuliani, however, is a tough SOB and he seems to be determined to take this fight right up to the Supreme Court. This is why I believe that it is very dangerous to make any assumptions about what the Justices might or might not do. Is it possible that even the Supreme Court justices would betray their oath and cave in to the Dem’s pressure? Yes, I suppose so. Concepts such as truth, honor, integrity, courage and heroism are very much out of fashion in the modern world, especially in the US. This is why the traditionally hallowed term “hero” is applied left and right to every bureaucrat or civil servant simply doing his/her job: real heroes are long gone.

Then consider this: if the SC sides with Trump and overturns the hundred of thousands of illegal votes, the US will be immediately plunged into an orgy of chaos and violence, all of it encouraged and coordinated by the legacy corporate ziomedia à la CNN. The thugs of Antifa/BLM will immediately engage in Kristallnacht-like rampages in “protest” against the “racist system”. Their main target? White, Christian, males, of course!

Some justices might even feel torn between standing up for what is both legal and moral and the practical considerations of the consequences of an adjudication in Trump’s favor. Their oath ought to be their guiding principles, but considering how often the SC voted along party/ideological lines in the past, I am not very confident that the Justices will strictly do the only legally and morally right thing: uphold the law and vote their conscience.

Finally, whatever we may think of the election itself, it is obvious that the US elites have created the appearance of a fait accompli, hence the kind of nonsense like, say, Biden and his “Office of the President Elect”. It is therefore reasonable to assume that even if the Supreme Court fully sides with the Trump campaign, the US elites will never accept this. They will try to find a way to impeach, legally or otherwise, those Justices who voted “wrong”.

I think that there is also another consideration which we have to remain aware of: Trump’s entire presidency is been one long and never ending prostitution of the United States to the desires and whims of Netanyahu and his gang of thugs. True, as Israel Shamir pointed out, the Israelis failed to deliver anything in return to Trump. And yet, as Philip Giraldi recently explained, Trump is still very much Israel’s prostitute, which is why there are an increasing number of Israeli experts (see here and here) who believe that Trump might strike at Iran as a “farewell” present to the Israelis.

Is that really possible? Could Trump really do something so crazy?

You betcha he could!

One one hand, I have always maintained that Trump is the Zionists’ “disposable president”, meaning a one term president who will do everything the Likudniks want of him and who will then be jettisoned and replaced by a truly “kosher president” like Biden/Harris. On the other hand, however, there is the precedent of the US meekly taking the Iranian missile attacks in retaliation for the murder of General Soleimani which seems to indicate that the Pentagon just does not have the stomach for a full-scale war against Iran.

So which will it be?

Nobody knows. The only thing we can be sure of is that we are certainly entering very dangerous times.

Those who hope that a Biden/Harris presidency might be better are deeply deluded.

Why?

Because, as many have already pointed this out, even if Trump is ejected from the White House, “Trumpism”, as an ideology, is here to stay. Even if you believe that Biden/Harris beat Trump in a fair election, surely must you still realize that there are tens of millions of Americans who feel that the election was stolen and that Biden/Harris are usurpers.

Personally, I take a very dim view of “Trumpism”, but whatever its (many) flaws, this ideology, however vague, has “redpilled” millions of Americans who now realize that they are living in a fake democracy or, to use a Russian expression, “democracy” in the US only means “power of the Democrats”. Simply put: we can call them “1%ers” or the “US Nomenklatura” or the “deep state” or whatever other term which comes to mind, but the bottom line is obvious: the US is not a democracy or a republic, it is a dictatorship of the few over the many, the “best democracy money can buy” and a system based not on one man one vote, but one dollar one vote. Whether they realize it or not, most Americans are serfs of an occupying parasitic regime which sees them solely as a (cheap) commodity.

These ideas used to be corralled into what the Ziomedia liked to call the “extremist fringe” but now millions of Americans are becoming aware of this reality, CNN & Co notwithstanding. Put the Biden/Harris ticket into the White House and millions of people will go into some kind of “resistance mode” – whether that be political activism, civil resistance, local/state insubordination to the Federal power or even armed resistance.

One of the top priorities of the Dems in power will be to crack down, hard, on the First and Second Amendments to the US Constitution. Right there we can expect a lot of local/regional/state resistance because, unlike their ruling “elites” (i.e. masters), most Americans passionately care for what are really the cornerstones of the US political system. Yes, there is a reason why the Founding Fathers placed the First Amendment in first position and the Second one right after!

The Dems will castrate the First Amendment through their control of all the major Internet platforms (YouTube, Google, FaceBook, Twitter, Amazon, etc.) and, since this will not be government censorship, at least technically, but decisions of the private sector, even the ACLU will have nothing to say about this.

The Second Amendment will be trickier to deal with, because there is no private or non-governmental institution which can do to the Second Amendment what big tech companies have done to the First one. However, all it takes is a few well-orchestrated “shootings” or any armed refusal to be disarmed, and the label “domestic terrorist” will be swiftly applied to those who dared to resist Uncle Shmuel.

Again – we are about to enter an extremely dangerous period, both inside the US and on the international front.

Trump’s handlers must realize that the AngloZionist Empire is already finished and that all that’s left is an agonizing United States. The same probably goes for the Biden/Harris handlers. Hence both parties have a huge interest in, first, creating some crisis which can distract from what is really going on and, second, in using whatever power they still have to “fire their last shells” before the ammo box goes empty.

Conclusion: too many variables to call it

The truth is that absolutely anything can happen next. There are simply way too many variables to try to make a prediction. Will Trump attack Iran? I want to believe that this ship has sailed, but I will never say never to something as evil and stupid as an attack on Iran. However, under pretty much any scenario, we can be pretty sure that come January there will be a power vacuum in the Executive and roughly half of all Americans will consider that the election has been stolen. That kind of power vacuum, or even a duopoly, is very dangerous and typically results in even more chaos and violence. Eventually, some kind of “tough” regime comes to power. But this is a threat that we can discuss further down the road.

The Hidden History of the Incredibly Evil Khazarian Mafia

Source: Veterans Today

By Preston James and Mike Harris

100-800 AD – an incredibly Evil Society Emerges in Khazaria:

Khazarians develop into a nation ruled by an evil king, who had ancient Babylonian black arts, occult oligarchs serving as his court. During this time, Khazarians become known to surrounding countries as thieves, murderers, road bandits, and for assuming the identities of those travelers they murdered as a normal occupational practice and way of life.

800 AD – The Ultimatum is delivered by Russia and other surrounding nations:

The leaders of the surrounding nations, especially Russia, have had so many years of complaints by their citizens that, as a group, they deliver an ultimatum to the Khazarian king. They send a communique to the Khazarian king that he must choose one of the three Abrahamic religions for his people, and make it his official state religion and require all Khazarian citizens to practice it, and socialize all Khazarian children to practice that faith.

The Khazarian king was given a choice between Islam, Christianity and Judaism. The Khazarian king chose Judaism, and promised to stay within the requirements laid out by the surrounding confederacy of nations led by the Russian czar. Despite his agreement and promise, the Khazarian king and his inner circle of oligarchs kept practicing ancient Babylonian black-magic, also known as Secret Satanism. This Secret Satanism involved occult ceremonies featuring child sacrifice, after “bleeding them out”, drinking their blood and eating their hearts.

The deep dark secret of the occult ceremonies was that they were all based on ancient Baal Worship, also known as worship of the Owl. In order to fool the confederacy of nations led by Russia that were watching Khazaria, the Khazarian king melded these Luciferian black-magick practices with Judaism and created a secret Satanic-hybrid religion, known as Babylonian Talmudism. This was made the national religion of Khazaria, and nurtured the same evil that Khazaria was known for before.

Sadly, the Khazarians continued their evil ways, robbing and murdering those from surrounding countries who traveled through Khazaria. Khazarian robbers often attempted to assume their identities after they murdered these visitors, and became masters of disguises and false identities — a practice they have continued even to this very day, along with their child-sacrifice occult ceremonies, which are actually ancient Baal Worship.

1,200 AD – Russia and the surrounding nations have had enough and take action:

About 1,200 AD, the Russians led a group of nations surrounding Khazaria and invaded it, in order to stop the Khazarian crimes against their people, which included kidnapping of their young children and infants for their blood sacrifice ceremonies to Baal. The Khazarian king and his inner court of criminals and murderers came to be known as the Khazarian Mafia (KM) by neighboring countries.

The Khazarian leaders had a well-developed spy network through which they obtained prior warning and escaped from Khazaria to European nations to the west, taking their vast fortune with them in gold and silver. They laid low and regrouped, while assuming new identities. In secret, they continued their Satanic child blood and sacrifice rituals, and trusted Baal to give them the whole world and all its riches, as they claimed he had promised them, as long as they kept bleeding out and sacrificing children and infants for him.

The Khazarian king and his court Mafia plotted eternal revenge against the Russians and the surrounding nations that invaded Khazaria and drove them from power.

The Khazarian Mafia invades England after being expelled for hundreds of years:

To accomplish their invasion, they hired Oliver Cromwell to murder King Charles 1, and make England safe for banking again. This began the English Civil Wars which raged for nearly a decade, resulting in regicide of the royal family and hundreds of the genuine English nobility. This is how the City of London was set up as the banking capital of Europe and launched the beginning of the British Empire.

From David Icke’s website http://www.davidicke.com. David Icke was the first ever to courageously expose the Rothschilds publicly in front of hundreds. This, of course, makes him an international hero and we need more with his kind of courage to break open the coverup hiding the Khazarian Mafia and bring an end to their worldwide illegitimate power.[/caption]

The Khazarian Mafia (KM) decides to infiltrate and hijack all World Banking using Babylonian Black-Magick, also known as Babylonian Money-Magick or the secret art of making money from nothing also using the power of pernicious usury to accumulate interest:

The KM used their vast fortune to enter into a new system of banking, based on secret Babylonian black-magic money-magic that they claimed to have learned from the evil spirits of Baal, in return for their many child sacrifices to him.

This Babylonian money-magick involved the substitution of paper credit certificates for gold and silver deposits, which allowed travelers to travel with their money in a form that offered easy replacement should they lose the certificates or have them stolen.

Interesting how the very problem that was started by the Khazarians also had a solution provided by them. Eventually the Khazarian king and his small surrounding court infiltrated Germany with a group that chose the name “the Bauers” of Germany to represent them and carry on their Baal-powered system of evil. The Bauers of the Red Shield, which represented their secret blood-based child sacrifices, changed their name to Rothschild (aka “child of the rock, Satan”).

The Rothschilds as the front Men for the Khazarian Mafia (KM) infiltrate and Hijack British Banking and then hijack the whole nation of England:

Bauer/Rothschild had five sons who infiltrated and took over European banking and the City of London Central Banking System through various crafty covert operations, including a false report of Napoleon winning against the British, when actually he lost. This allowed the Rothschilds to use fraud and deception to steal the wealth of the English nobility and the landed gentry, who had made business investments with the City of London Banking institutions.

The Rothschilds set up a private Fiat banking system that specialized in making counterfeit money from nothing — charging pernicious usury for the British people, using what should have been their own money.

This was the black art of Babylonian money-magick; they claimed to insiders that such technology and secret money power was provided to them by Baal, because of their frequent child bleeding-out and sacrifices rituals to Baal.

Once they had infiltrated and hijacked the British banking system, they interbred with the British Royals and infiltrated and completely hijacked all of England and all its major institutions. Some experts believe that the Rothschilds genocided the Royal Family members by staging secretly-managed illicit and adulterous breedings with their own Khazarian men in order to replace the Royals with their own pretenders to the throne.

The Khazarian Mafia (KM) wages an international effort to eradicate Kings who rule by the Divine Right of God Almighty:

Because the KM claims to have a personal partnership with Baal (aka the Devil, Lucifer, Satan) because of their sacrifices to him. They detest any kings who rule under the authority of God Almighty because most feel a responsibility to make sure their own people are protected from infiltrators and treasonous “Enemies within the Gates.”

In the 1600’s, the KM murder the British Royals and substitute their own fakes. In the 1700’s, they murder the French Royals. Right before WWI they murder, Austrian Archduke Ferdinand to start WW1. In 1917 they assembled their KM army, the Bolsheviks, and infiltrate and hijack Russia, murder the Czar and his family in cold blood, bayonet his favorite daughter through the chest and steal all the Russian gold, silver and art treasures. Right before WW2, they murder the Austrian and German Royals. Then they get rid of the Chinese Royals and disempower the Japanese ruler.

The Khazarian Mafia’s intense hatred of anyone who professed faith in any God but their god Baal has motivated them to murder kings and royalty, and make sure they can never rule. They have done the same with American presidents — running sophisticated covert operations to disempower them.

If that doesn’t work the KM assassinates them, like they did to McKinley, Lincoln and JFK. The KM wants to eliminate any strong rulers or elected officials who dare to resist their Babylonian money-magick power or their covert power gained from their deployment of their human compromise network.

The Rothschilds create international narcotics trafficking on behalf of the KM:

The Rothschilds then covertly ran the British Empire and crafted an evil plan to recover the vast amounts of gold and silver the British had been paying to China for its high-quality silk and spices that were unavailable anywhere else.

The Rothschilds, through their international spy network, had heard of Turkish opium and its habit-forming characteristics. They deployed a covert operation to buy Turkish opium and sell it in China, infecting millions with a bad opium habit that brought back gold and silver into the Rothschild coffers, but not to the British People.

The opium addictions created by Rothschild opium sales to China harmed China so much that China went to war on two occasions to stop it. These wars were known as the Boxer Rebellions or the Opium Wars.

The money the Rothschilds gained from the sale of opium was so vast that they became even more addicted to the easy money than the opiate addicts were to the opium.

The Rothschilds were the funding source behind the establishment of the American Colonies, by incorporating the Hudson Bay Company and other trading companies to exploit the New World of the Americas. It was the Rothschild’s who ordered the mass extermination and genocide of the indigenous people of North America to allow for exploitation of the vast natural resources of the continent.

The Rothschild’s also followed the same business template in the Caribbean and in the Asian sub-continent of India, resulting in the murder of millions of innocent people.

The Rothschilds start the international slave trade, an enterprise that viewed these kidnapped humans as mere animals — a view that the Khazarians would impose on all the people of the world who were not part of their evil circle, which some called the “Old Black Nobility”:

The Rothschild’s next big project was to start the worldwide slave trade, buying slaves from crooked tribal chiefs in Africa who worked with them to kidnap members of competing tribes for sale as slaves.

The Rothschild slave traders then took these kidnapped slaves on their ships in cramped cells to America and the Caribbean where they were sold. Many died at sea due to bad conditions.

The Rothschild bankers learned early on that war was a great way to double their money in a short time by lending money to both warring sides. But in order to be guaranteed collections, they had to get taxation laws passed, which could be used to force payment.

The KM Rothschild private Fiat Counterfeit Banksters plot eternal revenge against the American Colonists and Russia who assisted them for losing the Revolutionary War:

When the Rothschilds lost the American Revolution, they blamed the Russian czar and the Russians for assisting the colonists by blockading British Ships.

They swore eternal revenge on the American colonists, just as they had when the Russians and their allies crushed Khazaria in 1,000 AD.

The Rothschilds and their English oligarchy that surrounded them plotted ways to retake America, and this became their main obsession.

Their favored plan is to set up an American central bank, featuring Babylonian money magic and secret counterfeiting.

The Rothschild KM attempts to retake America in 1812 on behalf of the Khazarian Mafia but fails, once again because of Russian interference:

This failure enraged the Rothschild KM, and they once again plot eternal revenge against both the Russians and the American colonists and plan to infiltrate and hijack both nations and asset strip, tyrannize and then mass-murder both nations and their populace.

The KM’s attempts to set up a private American central bank are blocked by President Andrew Jackson, who called them Satanic and vowed to route them out by the grace and power of Almighty God.

The Rothschild banksters regroup and continue their covert attempts to install their own Babylonian money-magick bank inside America.

Finally in 1913, the Rothschild KM succeeds in establishing a major beachhead inside America — and an evil enemy of all American enter the gates of America:

In 1913, the Rothschild KM was able to establish a beachhead by bribing crooked, treasonous members of Congress to pass the illegal, Unconstitutional Federal Reserve Act on Christmas Eve without a required quorum. The Act was then signed by a crooked, bought off President, who was a traitor to America, like the members of Congress who voted for it.

The Rothschild KM then create an illegal taxation System in America:

The KM put an illegal, Unconstitutional tax system in place, in order to make sure that Americans would have to pay for high-level USG spending, approved by a bought-off, crooked Congress and Presidential puppets, put in place by corrupt KM campaign finance.

It is easy for the KM to garner enough money to elect anyone they want, because when you control a bank that is a secret major counterfeiter, you have all the money made for you that you desire. At about the same time that they created their illegal tax system in America, they also bribed members of Congress to approve the Internal Revenue Service, which is their private collection agency incorporated in Puerto Rico.

Soon afterwards, they set up the Federal Bureau of Investigation to protect their banksters, to serve their cover-up needs and prevent them from ever being prosecuted for their child sacrifice rituals, pedophile networks; and to also serve as a covert Intel operation on their behalf.

Note that the FBI has no official charter, according to the Library of Congress, and has no right to exist or issue paychecks.

The Rothschild KM deployed the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia to extract incredibly savage, bloody revenge on innocent Russians, which they had plotted for many years, ever since Khazaria was destroyed:

The Rothschild KM pre-staged and engineered the Russian Revolution by using its central banks to pay for the Bolshevik infiltration of Russia and their Revolution on behalf of the Khazarian Mafia (KM).

The Bolsheviks were actually created and deployed by the Khazarian Mafia (KM) as the essential part of their long-planned revenge on the Russian Czar and the innocent Russian people for breaking up Khazaria in about 1,000 AD for its repeated robbery, murder and identity theft of travelers from countries surrounding Khazaria. This little known fact explains the extreme violence taken out on Russia as long-standing revenge by the Rothschild controlled Khazarian Mafia (KM).[/caption]

In an well-planned savage and inhuman bloodletting that stunned the world, the Bolsheviks were unleashed in full fury on behalf of the KM to gain revenge on the Russians. This had been planned since the destruction of Khazaria.

The Bolsheviks, at the direction of the Rothschild KM, raped, tortured and mass-murdered approximately 100 million Russians, including women, children and infants. Some of the torture and bloodletting was so extreme, we are not going to mention it here in this article.

But readers who want to know can do some in depth internet research on the “Red Terror” or the “Bolshevik Cheka” or watch the classic movie “The Checkist” which is available on www.youtube.com.

The Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (KM) once again decided to sheep-dip themselves and infiltrated and hijacked all Judaism:

The Rothschild KM created a master plan to control all of Judaism and mind-kontrol Judaics. The Rothschild KM has hijacked Judaism, patterned it off of Babylonian Talmudism (Luciferianism or Satanism), and gained control over the banking and Wall Street professions in general, Congress, the major mass media; along with most wealth and economic means of success.

Thus, the Rothschild KM could pass out wealth and success to those Judaics who drank their Kool-aide and use them as cutouts, assets and Sayanims. In this manner, the Rothschilds hijacked Judaism.

Their financing of the Israeli Knesset and construction of it using Freemason occult architecture displayed their commitment to the occult and Babylonian Talmudism and all the evil accompanying it, including child sacrifice to their secret god Baal. They set up a NWO system called World Zionism which taught and inculcated susceptible Judaics with a paranoid group delusion of racial superiority, which assumed that all Gentiles were intent on mass-murdering all Judaics.

Freemasonry architecture was used in the building of the Knesset and the Israeli Supreme Court viewed through windows.[/caption]

They called this racially-paranoid mass Judaic delusion of world conquest, “World Zionism”, which is really a form of covert Babylonian Talmudism or Luciferianism that had been unknown to mainstream Judaics. The system was designed to use Judaics as cover, but also to anoint them with Babylonian money-power, in order to use them as cutouts, and to later be sacrificed to Lucifer in two stages.

The first stage would be a their planned WWII in Nazi work camps, cut off from supplies, resulting in the deaths of about 200,000 Judaics from starvation and disease, along with about 90,000 non-Judaic inmates from the same causes, according to respected Red Cross official figures. This number is 5% of what the Khazarian Mafia (aka the World Zionists) claim.

The second great sacrifice would be a final one, when their New World Order Luciferian King would be placed into power, and when all three Abrahamic religions would be eradicated — especially Judaism, which would be blamed for all the wars and destruction of the world.

By then, the Rothschilds would once again morph themselves into a complete new identity not associated with Judaism in any form, not even World Zionism.

It is important to realize that the Rothschild KM took Germany down to nothing after WWI, created a vacuum for Fascism, and then rebuilt it, creating Naziism and installing Hitler as a counter-force to their Russian Bolshevism.

Hitler became a problem for the KM when he broke free and begin acting in the interests of the German people and the free people of the world, and developed his own banking system free of the Rothschilds.

Hitler introduced a financial system that was free of usury and beneficial to the working class. This mandated the utter destruction of Germany and the German people, because the Rothschilds and the Khazarians could never allow an economic system that did not depend upon usury to exist.

We see the same thing today with the Khazarian war against Islam, because Islam forbids usury. That is why Israel is so vocal and aggressive about destroying the Islamic people of the world.

The KM expected this to be a large WWII and when they supported both sides, this could be used to industrialize the whole world and maximize their bankster money-power.

The Rothschild KM then bribed and induced Members of Congress to send American Soldiers to their pre-stage and engineered WWI:

As a continuance of their well-proven pattern of financing both sides in any war to maximize profits, the acquisition of more federal tax monies and increased international power, the Rothschild Khazarians once again bribed, blackmailed and induced members of Congress to declare war against Germany in 1917.

This was facilitated by a KM false-flag attack with the sinking of the Lusitania.

The Rothschild KM has since developed the usual pattern of covertly staging false-flag attacks as a standard operating procedure for inducing Americans to fighting wars for the Khazarian Mafia.

After WWII was finished, the Rothschild KM deployed the Cold War, and used this as an excuse to bring Nazi scientists and mind-kontrol experts to America under Operation Paperclip.

This allowed them to set up a worldwide spying and espionage system that far exceeded any of their prior efforts.

Under this new system, they continue to infiltrate and hijack all American institutions, including the various American church systems, Freemasonry (especially the Scottish Rite and York Rite), the US military, US Intel, and most private defense contractors, the Judiciary and most agencies of the USG, including most State governments, and both major political parties as well.

The Rothschild KM sets up Nazi Work Camps as a pretext to later manipulate the Allies into granting them their own private colony in Palestine, using land stolen from the Palestinians:

The Rothschild KM was able to use their self mis-labelled, so-called “holocaust” to serve as a mind-kontrol trigger to thwart and resist any criticism of their Zionist ways.

The truth of the matter was that the Rothschild KM set up the Nazi work camps to make huge profits for their corporations that ran their work camps and supplied their Nazi war machine.

Once the Rothschild KM gained their own private homeland in Israel in 1947 through their covert political manipulations, they began to secretly view all of Palestine as their New Khazaria, and began plotting how to genocide all the Palestinians and steal all of Palestine for themselves. Their plans include their fantasy of constructing a “greater Israel” by taking over the whole Middle East and manipulating dumb American Goyim to fight and die on their behalf, taking all the Arab lands for Israel and the Khazarian Mafia (KM), so they can asset strip their wealth and natural resources, especially their crude oil.

Recent peer-reviewed Johns Hopkins genetic research by a respected Judaic MD shows that 97.5% of Judaics living in Israel have absolutely no ancient Hebrew DNA, are therefore not Semites, and have no ancient blood ties to the land of Palestine at all. By contrast, 80% of Palestinians carry ancient Hebrew DNA and thus are real Semites, and have ancient blood ties to Palestinian Land. This means that the real anti-Semites are the Israelis who are stealing Palestinian lands in order to build Israeli settlements, and it is the Israelis who are the ones tyrannizing and mass-murdering innocent Palestinians.

The Rothschild KM decides to morph again and expand their ranks:

In the meantime the Rothschild KM realized that they could not stay hidden much longer from the public unless they morphed again and expanded their secret leadership.

So they worked hard to further infiltrate and hijack Freemasonry and its secret offshoots, and inducted top members into their pedophile network and child sacrifice rituals.

Also, key members of Congress were inducted into their secret satanic network by giving them special power, high USG, military and Intel positions, accompanied by great monetary rewards and high status. Massive KM espionage fronts using Israeli-Americam “Israeli-first” dual citizens as cutouts were set up inside America to funnel the Khazarian banksters’ counterfeit money to politicians for their election campaigns, in order to own and control them when elected.

The Rothschild KM decides to Mind-kontrol the American masses to make it much easier to manipulate them into approving their illegal, Unconstitutional unprovoked, undeclared, unwinnable, perpetual wars needed to make huge profits and gain more world power:

The Rothschild KM decided to gain complete control over all public education by setting up the Department of Education and creating globalist and socialist curriculums based on political correctness, diversity and “perversion is normal” teachings. Fluoride is added to the public water and toothpaste, and dentists are mind-kontrolled to believe that fluoride prevents cavities, and is not harmful to brain function or thyroid function, which it is.

The addition of fluoride to the public water supply and to toothpaste is to dumb-down Americans by on average lowering the operational IQ and making folks much more docile than they would normally be. Programs to develop and deploy vaccinations to dumb-down children and create huge numbers of future chronic health problems were initiated.

Doctors have been mind-kontrolled and misled by biased research that was cherry-picked, ignoring any studies that were negative — and that included most of them. All vaccine cell lines are contaminated with SV-40, a known carcinogenic slow-acting virus.

The KM used its monetary power to gain control over all of the allopathic medical schools, and set up and controlled the American Medical Association and other medical societies, in order to make sure their agenda based on lies and deceit was continued.

Part of this massive plan to dumb-down and mind-kontrol the American masses was the KM’s buying up and consolidating all the American mass media into six controlled major mass media (CMMM), owned and controlled by their cutouts on their behalf. The CMMM functions as an illegal news cartel, and it should be broken up under antitrust laws and for inflicting espionage and illegal propaganda as a weapon of war against the American people.

The Rothschild KM Chieftains decide that it is time to use America to complete their final take-down and occupation of the Whole World by instituting a major False-Flag attack inside America to blame on the Islamics whom they want America to wrongly attack on their behalf:

So the KM Chieftains use their top Israeli-American “Israeli-first” dual citizens living in America (aka, the PNACers and top NeoCon Cutouts) to plan a major nuclear attack on America on 9-11-01.

Bibi Netanyahu, the operational head of the KM, deployed the Mossad and these Dual Citizens to set up and institute this attack on America which was to be blamed by the CMMM on Muslims.

They informed their top Rabbis and “Friends of World Zionism” not to fly on that day and to stay out of NYC, as did “Larry Silverfish”, one of the primary men involved in the operation.

They used their main cutout in the DOD to lure the Able Danger investigators to the Pentagon Naval Intel meeting room, where they would be assassinated by a Tomahawk cruise missile that was fired from an Israeli Dolphin class Diesel submarine bought from Germany.

Thirty-five of the Able Danger investigators who were investigating and tracking the Israeli theft of 350 decommissioned W-54 Davy Crockett nuclear pits out of the backdoor at Pantex in Texas were murdered by this Tomahawk hit, which was timed with the detonation of bombs pre-planted in the Naval Intel wing, which was newly hardened to no avail.

The Israeli Mossad front company, Urban Moving Systems, was used to transport the mini-nukes made from the stolen W-54 nuclear pits from Pantex (and originally made at the Hanford processing plant), where they were stored in the Israeli Embassy in NYC and transported to the Twin Towers for detonation on 9-11-01.

Baal aka Moloch, Lucifer, Satan. Take your pick it’s the same evil spirit that wants to mass-murder all humans. In exchange for doing his “dirty work” he rewards those allow him to snatch their souls by giving them incredible riches, fame, and power. This is the secret blood contract called “selling one’s soul.”

The incredibly Evil Secret Agenda of the Khazarian Mafia (KM) is now revealed publicly for the very first time by Veterans Today’s own Gordon Duff. We now know that Bibi Netanyahu ran the nuclear attack on America on 9-11-01 and did it as an overall Khazarian Mafia (KM) Agenda.

Hold on to your chair, this is very big secret and explains a lot of what has been going on inside America, all caused by Israel and the Khazarian Mafia (KM) which has infiltrated almost all of Americas institutions of Government and society.

Now for the first time ever the very specific secret incredibly Evil Agenda of the Khazarian Mafia (KM) is going to be revealed, thanks to an interview that Mike Harris had with Veterans Today Senior Editor and Director Gordon Duff on his talk-show “The Short End of the Stick” on 3-10-15.

I have heard a lot of shocking insider’s secrets over the years but this one really takes the cake and explains exactly what Israel and its minions in America have been to us on behalf of the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (KM) that has screwed up almost every aspect of our lives creating a poor economy, lots of unemployment and underemployment, massive crime, alcoholism and drug, screwed up schools that dumb down the kids, various eugenics programs like fluoride in the public water and toothpaste, and mercury in vaccines which are a big fraud, and rampant political corruption.

This interview is now sending shock-waves around the world and when you consider the content that Gordon Duff disclosed for the first time anywhere publicly, you will be shocked. And you will understand that Bibi Netanyahu is the Operational Head of the Khazarian Mafia (KM) and was the one that ordered and supervised the Israeli Nuclear Attack on America on 9-11-01.

In this interview Gordon Duff disclosed from a written transcript of what was said at a meeting between Bibi Netanyahu and American traitor and some other spies in 1990. Gordon Duff disclosed that Netanyahu was a KGB spy like Jonathan Pollard. And we know now that Israel was started as a satellite of Bolshevik Russia and was quite unhappy when the Soviet Union fell.


Benjamin Netanyahu was meeting in at Finks bar in Jerusalem, a well-known Mossad watering-hole. Here is what he said as taken directly from the transcript of the recording which was witnessed and has been 100% fully authenticated:

If we get caught they will just replace us with persons of the same cloth. So it doesn’t matter what you do, America is a Golden Calf and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the World’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control. Why? Because it’s god’s will and America is big enough to take the hit so we can do it again, again and again. This is what we do to countries that we hate. We destroy them very slowly and make them suffer for refusing to be our slaves.”

This is exactly what the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (KM) has been doing to America since it successfully infiltrated and hijacked America in 1913. Knowledge of what Bibi said on behalf of the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (KM) should make us all furious and get motivated to drive these evil creatures out of America and take our great Republic back.

When Bibi Netanyahu mentions god’s will, the god he was referring to is Baal (also known as the Great Owl or Moloch), the god these Khazarians believe requires them to worship him by constant bloodletting and painful human sacrifice and mass-murder and that if they “sell their souls” to Baal (aka Lucifer or Satan) do this they will be rewarded with incredible riches, fame and great power. When they “sell their souls” what actually happens is that their souls are snatched away and they become inhuman or soulless and take on the characteristics of Baal, that is they become increasingly psychopathic and evil.

What Bibi Netanyahu was discussing was the upcoming nuclear attack on America on 9-11-01, and when he mentioned “they will just replace us” he was referring to the top Circle of Twelve, the group he answers to that Veterans Today’s own Columnist and talk show host Stew Webb disclosed to the World by identifying 11 of the 12 who call themselves the “Illuminati” or “Disciples of Satan.” These men do semi-annual child sacrifice in Denver and eat the hearts of children, drink their blood after they pedophile them.

Folks, we must get this information out to everyone we can, then unite and drive these soulless Baal worshiping scum out of every nook and cranny of America and bring them all to justice and final judgment for all their incredible evil.

Anyone who understands what Bibi Netanyahu thinks of Americans as a golden calf to asset strip and slaughter should be enraged and driven to community organizing, and political action against Israeli espionage inside America through the Federal Reserve System, AIPAC, JINSA, the Defense Policy Board, the CFR and the like.

The Rothschild KM planted has 25 nukes in major American cities and other major cities in Europe in order to blackmail the associated government. This is referred to as their Samson Option, and was first discovered and disclosed by Seymour Hersh:

The Rothschild KM also gained some S-19 and S-20 Warheads from a corrupt Member of Congress assigned the task to buy up Ukrainian Mirvs on behalf of the USG in order to decommission them. Instead, he sold them to the Israelis and split the money with other key Congressmen involved.

This is high treason and a capital offense punishable by execution. Right after their attack on America, the Rothschild KM told the US Administration that they would detonate city-buster sized nukes in some American cities, including DC, if the Administration refused to allow Israel to create their own large police state occupation force inside America, based on the consolidation of all American Law Enforcement and alphabets under one central Israeli control.

This new Israeli occupation force called Homeland Security (DHS) was initially run by dual citizens and perverts. Former DHS Director Janet Napolitano is being sued for sexual harassment of men working at DHS whom she ordered to move their offices into the men’s lavatory.

Dual Citizen traitor Michael Chertoff, (a name translated from Russian as “son of the devil”), was the criminal mastermind that set up DHS, along with former head of the East German Stasi, Marcus Wolfe, who was hired as a special consultant and died mysteriously as soon as his mission was completed.

The Rothschild KM never thought they would get exposed for their nuclear attack on America on 9-11-11, but they made one of the biggest tactical mistakes in history and overplayed their hand from excess hubris, based on too much easy success due to their extreme money power in the past.

Soon mainstream America will know that Bibi Netanyahu and his Likudist Party deployed the attack on America on 9-11-01 on behalf of the Rothschild KM:

They thought that they had complete control over the CMMM and could prevent any of the secret IAEA and Sandia Labs investigation from ever being released to the American public.

They made a serious tactical error because now the truth about their role in the 9-11-01 attack on America is being published on the worldwide Internet, the world’s new Gutenberg Press. What the Rothschild KM did not understand was the power of the Internet and how truth-nuggets published and broadcast on it resonate with the people of the world and spread like wildfire, at the speed of light. Truth is being diffused to the masses everywhere.

This incredible tactical error by the KM is so great that it will actually doom them to the complete exposure and eventual complete destruction they deserve. Bibi Netanyahu’s order to proceed and deliver the nuclear attack on America on 9-11-01 will go down in history as one of the KM’s biggest mistakes, and the one that will be blamed for their exposure and destruction by the world that is now ganging up against them.

The Russians have now leaked the IAEA and Sandia Labs and Able Danger files given to them by Edward Snowden. Soon all of these files will be provided to all Americans and the world via the Internet, and this cannot be stopped.

A number of Russians in the High Military Command in Russia, and in the highest positions of leadership in the Russian government realize that it was the same Organized Crime Cabal that organized the Khazarians into Bolsheviks to mass-murder 100 million innocent Russians — and these men want payback.

That is why they are making sure that the Rothschild banksters will be put out of business, which will decapitate the Khazarian Mafia from its endless, elastic counterfeit money supply. This is why the BRICS Development Bank was created — to replace the US Petro Dollar as the world’s reserve currency, but this one, unlike the US Petro Dollar is backed by gold, silver and real commodities, with NO counterfeiting allowed.

The CMMM is failing, and most Americans no longer believe any of their prime-time national stories, especially the under-thirty crowd, who cherry pick facts from the Internet and construct their own beliefs.

So many Internet users now reject the CMMM that the truth about the Israelis attacking America on 9-11-01 is becoming easier each day to believe. Soon all of mainstream America will know that Bibi Netanyahu and his Mossad and dual citizens did the 9-11-01 attack on America.

The American Military High Command knows that Bibi Netanyahu ordered his Mossad and stateside Dual Citizens to attack America using nukes on 9-11-01 on behalf of the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (KM):

Various deep cover covert operations are now being deployed globally to expose and decapitate the Rothschild KM from their endless, elastic money supply.

Their days of anti-human power are now limited. The secret, incredibly well-trained US team called the “Nuclear Snake-Eaters” is now hard at work searching all incoming Israeli diplomatic pouches and shipments; driving by and flying over synagogues and Israeli embassies and Mossad safe-houses with high tech gamma-ray and helium-3 neutron detectors; and using ultra-high-tech custom-tuned and -focused satellites to search for any stored nuclear pits, as well as working hard to recover all stolen nuclear pits by the Israelis anywhere in the world outside of Israel.

This super-elite team was alerted by Michael Shrimpton’s phone call to MI-6 notifying them that an Israeli “City Buster” was planted near the Olympic stadium. This call wrongly has landed him in jail. The City Buster was recovered by the “Nuclear Snake-eaters”, who entered England and recovered and disarmed a large city buster. Sadly MI-6 wanted this nuke detonated in order to gain more power for the Khazarian Mafia in England — their home base inside the City of London Financial District — since it has been losing power fast.

A secret name for these KM Chieftains which run much of the world out of the City of London is Gog and Magog, despite what so many historians believe is the secret name of Russia which it is not. It is the secret name of the top KM, and apparently represents where they originally came from.

The secret team of super-elite “Nuclear Snake-eaters” is ready to be deployed to Israel anytime, should the nation collapse after most European corporations divest from Israel, and the US cuts off all aid, in order to comply with American law. It is illegal to give aid to a nation that has nukes, and which has not signed the Nuclear Non-proliferation Agreement. Israel has nukes detectable from satellite-based Helium-3 sensors and has never admitted it, nor has it signed the Nuclear Non-proliferation Agreement. We must all demand that our Congress and Administration obey the law and immediately cut off all aid monetary and military aid to Israel, and arrest all Israeli espionage front directors of AIPAC, JINSA, the Defense Policy Board, the “Joint” in NYC, and the ADL, etc.

It is unknown but suspected that a significant number of these stolen nukes have been already recovered. It has been reported by insiders that a very solemn message was communicated to Bibi Netanyahu and his Likudists, as well as all top members of Israeli espionage fronts in America, like AIPAC, JINSA, the Defense Policy Board, the ADL and the like.

What was this serious warning? If insider reports are accurate, these folks were told that if there is one more Israeli based false-flag attack, those who ordered it or were involved will be hunted down under American National Security and eliminated, and the Israeli defense structures associated with such will be turned to dust.

The rest of Rothschild KM history will likely be determined by YOU:

The future of the Rothschild KM will likely be determined by Veterans Today readers and We The People who learn the secret, forbidden history of the Khazarian Mafia that was excised from the history books and libraries by the KM to protect their evil history that no one would accept if it was known.

So share this story with your family, friends, and associates and take it viral. Be clear about this — unless the KM is able to operate in abject secrecy, it will be attacked from all sides and destroyed forever. So take away their secrecy by exposing their hidden history for all Americans to know and understand.

That is why they have worked so hard to buy up and control the CMMM and public mass education including colleges and universities, to make sure the people of the world would never find out about their secret evil, which is so inhuman, so homicidal that the whole world would gang up on them and attack them from all sides at every level they exist at.

The big question remains: Was the true cause of leaders of the Khazarian Mafia’s incredible evil and savagery toward the human race a byproduct or nature or nurture? Some believe that this gross parasitism and inclination to mass-murder, engage in pedophilia and child bloodletting and child sacrifice is due to a toxic culture, best described as malignant Tribalism, characterized by a paranoid group racial superiority delusion. Others think the leaders of the KM are the bloodline of Cain, that is, “children of Cain”, that are the Devil’s own and have absolutely no soul or human conscience, but are pure predators like a wild beast — while at the same time being incredibly two-faced, that is able to put on a good con and a nice face on the outside. Perhaps it could be both factors. In any case, it is time to expose this evil, the greatest evil the world has ever experienced. It is time for the world to work together to eradicate this problem now and forever, by whatever means necessary.

The American Elections: An Out-of-Context Reading

Auto translation: Actually I don’t know what happened

Ziad Hafez

The results of the presidential election were announced by former Vice President Joseph Biden, amid a broad public split between supporters of and opponents of US President Donald Trump. We will not enter into a debate about the “legitimacy” of the results and the credibility of the screening process, but regardless of that debate that has its own merits but only concerns us to the extent that it confirms the deep division in American society. There are several facts revealed by the US elections about the internal political scene that we have been monitoring for many years and we expect it to reach this state. Yes, we were not surprised by what happened, but rather we expected it because what happened reflects the transformations that have occurred and are still taking place within American society or, more precisely, within American societies. We expected that US President Donald Trump is stronger than his internal and external opponents believed, despite the ferocity of the election campaign, and we also expected that an argument may revolve around the reliability of the counting process due to the internal division. There is not one America, but at least two, if not several, “Americans,” so to speak. The American division is vertical and horizontal. The factors are class first, otherwise the American media wants to acknowledge this for a clear reason, as it is owned by only six companies, meaning there is one opinion imposed on the American citizen, so the class dimension in American societies is ignored. The second component is race, the third is religion, the fourth is culture, and the fifth is geography, where the inhabitants of large cities differ from the residents of central and small cities and the countryside in general, which we have referred to in the past and will not be repeated here. But we think it is useful to extract the facts that the US elections have shown.

But we think it is useful to extract the facts that the US elections have shown.

The first fact is the flabby political system in place in the United States, which is based on the system of two ruling parties, which alternate power from time to time, according to circumstantial data and according to the role of some differences in domestic and foreign public policy. However, the two parties agree on one vision of the nature of the existing system, which protects, first and foremost, capital and harnesses law and politics, and thus justice in the interest of capital. The two parties also share one vision of the continuation of the empire and the politics of domination. However, this system, which was formed within two centuries within specific population scales and within certain economic and social power balances, is no longer able to accommodate the demographic shifts that have taken place and which Samuel Huntington pointed out clearly. The latter said in his last work before his departure:

Indeed, population shifts indicate that the rate of population growth in the United States is below the rate required to maintain its presence, and therefore the door to immigration must be opened. The issue of immigration, legal and illegal, is a complex one that needs a separate approach, but it is at the core of the dispute between the two competing parties. The Republican Party wants to legalize immigration according to standards that there is no consensus or agreement about, and while the Democratic Party wants to open the door to immigration to ensure, first, a cheap labor force that guarantees lower wages and supports capital, and its belief that ethnic diversity is in the interest of the party at the electoral political level. Therefore, the Republican Party has become a white majority party that is considered marginalized in the globalized society, which was promoted by liberal leaders in the Democratic Party for two decades, while the Democratic Party has transformed into a party of ethnic and religious diversity, but with a liberal leadership that is mostly white and not necessarily identical to the requirements of diversity.

On the other hand, the two parties are no longer able to absorb the economic shifts due to the tendency towards globalization from which the big companies and the financial and technological oligarchy have benefited, but at the expense of the American worker. The decline in jobs in the basic productive sectors and the shift towards a virtual rentier economy based on financial and real estate speculation has led to a rift between the real economy and the path of financial markets. The stock market is in a mile and unemployment in another mile. And the two parties contributed over the decades in that transformation until Donald Trump arrived and tried to regain industrial jobs that were exported to the countries of the South in general. However, it clashed with the power of interests associated with the neoliberal economic model, which led to the concentration of money and media in the hands of companies no more than the fingers of one hand. Hence the wave of public discontent that Trump succeeded in exploiting in 2016 and nearly succeeded in the 2020 elections had it not been for Corona and his mismanagement of the pandemic that toppled his chances of success for a second term.

The defect in the ruling system appeared twice in a row: the first time in the 2016 presidential elections and the second this year, when the options imposed on the American voter were to choose between who is less bad than who is better, and not for those who have the political, economic and social program that mimics the aspirations of Americans and the transformations. That happened during the past four decades. The observer wonders why the political scene has reached this state and the answer lies in the nature of the regime governed by money and private interests, and only those who declare their full loyalty to it will not come. The overwhelming majority of politicians and people working in public affairs owe their positions to those who funded them, not to those who elected them. Naturally, the “elites” elected in this way become very poor, as we see in the rolling graph for more than forty years. The president is either morally corrupt or ignorant, or both. And the “clean” among them is whose vices are either concealed or concealed. The corporate dominant media deliberately ignored the corruption of the candidate Biden, who became “president” and focused on the corruption of the current president. As it is said in colloquial speech, the latter is “his body is worn.” The scandal of the fanciful left-wing Intercept website, which supports Biden, refused to publish an investigation into the corruption of Biden and his family. And the current president came from outside the usual context, and thus his mandate was an ongoing war with the deep state because he wanted to break the vicious alliance. On the other hand, the candidate Biden, and before him Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, are from the womb of the corrupt environment that produces the ruling elites in the United States. It can be said through the announced results that the deep state defeated Trump, but the cost may be very high.

Bush and Bill Clinton, are from the womb of the corrupt environment that produces the ruling elites in the United States. It can be said through the announced results that the deep state defeated Trump, but the cost may be very high.

The second fact is the loss of the United States’ prestige. One pro-Biden website described the election count as a “farce” that lost the credibility and prestige of the United States that it lost in our opinion some time ago, but the election play was an official announcement of the fall of the illusions of the credibility of the existing system in the United States. Even the unofficial spokesperson for globalization and neoliberalism, Thomas Friedman, wrote that “America has fallen” in this cycle of elections. The doubts, or perhaps more than one, about the “theft” of the elections (as Paul Craig Roberts and others say) will contribute to exacerbating a political crisis that may herald the end of the United States as we know it and the creation of a different entity from what it was. A new battle will appear for the sake of a new “legitimacy” that may not gain the consensus of the Americans and will exacerbate the division.

Here some clarification is needed. What happened after the 2016 elections will be repeated after 2020. The losing side will not accept the poll results. From the very first moments after Trump was elected, the Democratic Party, along with the dominant corporate media, took action to bring down Trump because it was surprised by Trump’s victory. And if Trump’s promises are true, he will try to challenge the results in federal courts, and hard-line factions in his electoral base may announce their rejection of these results. This is what Friedman meant, and this is what we should pay attention to, that is, the democratic process has become a source of skepticism. So what is the alternative?

The third fact is hitting the credibility of the corporate hegemonic media that led the campaign against Trump through the poll companies that inspired the world with Biden winning by a large margin, as if the results are already settled before the vote! The actual results came to refute those expectations and confirm that Trump is not a passing phenomenon, but rather a reflection of an American mood outside the traditional context and has weight on the popular level. Trump’s vote exceeded Hillary Clinton’s vote by two million, indicating that Trump supporters are not the only ones who reject Hillary Clinton. The elections proved that the American mood differs from what the dominant media portrays, which lost its professionalism in covering the campaign and was expressing only one opinion. Regardless of the official results, Trump has transformed from a president of the United States into a popular political leader for the so-called red America, that is, the states at home that voted for him. And this is despite the obvious and scandalous flaws in his competence and personal behavior that were the object of ridicule and contempt for many Americans and non-Americans. This change may be decisive in American political life, where “popular leadership” may be in the face of “constitutional legitimacy,” and the resulting constitutional crisis, to a system crisis, to an entity crisis.

Among the failures of public opinion polls is the failure to achieve the “blue wave” that was supposed to sweep Congress. The Democratic Party, which had expected an increase in its majority in the House of Representatives, lost several seats and may lose its majority in the next mid-term elections in 2022, as it was unable to obtain the majority in the Senate. Popularly, the Democratic Party lost the elections, even if Biden was declared winning the presidency. This “victory” has its credibility popularly contested by almost half of Americans, and it may be judicially contested. The political division may extend beyond the arena of constitutional institutions, namely the Congress, to resolve (the absurd) in the street. All this means that instability has become the title of the current and future stage in the United States. On the other hand, there are those who consider that the United States is a state of institutions, and after the wave of anger on the losing team, things will return to normal. This is a simplified reading of the American scene that does not take into account the transformations that we mentioned above and previously, and which portend the erosion of internal cohesion in the context of economic scarcity. The American dream, which was creating internal cohesion, has fallen into the periphery of contradictions and failures, both internally and externally.

The fourth fact is the high turnout among supporters and opponents of the US President, which indicates the depth of the existing division that took the character of “breaking a bone.” It is not certain that the president-elect and his team have the ability to bridge the gap between the two factions of the people, because he does not have a clear discourse and policy that can simulate the citizens’ concerns. If it is too early to pass judgment, the history of the man and the history of the Vice President-elect do not suggest that they have a vision for an exit from the structural crises facing Americans. From the Corona pandemic to its economic repercussions, to health insurance issues, to the issue of immigration and internal security, to issues of racism, to climate issues, to the rehabilitation of flabby infrastructure to a long list of entitlements that have been neglected over the past five decades, that is, since the beginning of the seventies, They all need a comprehensive vision. The disagreement between the young base of the Democratic Party and the aging party leadership is difficult to bridge.

The fifth fact is that the Corona pandemic toppled the American president. Let us not forget that in the primaries, Biden was on the verge of leaving the campaign trail and the lead was candidate Bernie Sanders. Also, Kamala Harris won only one percent of the Democratic voters in the election campaign, indicating that there was a coup in the primaries to exclude Sanders, as happened in 2016, and to float Biden. With great support from Barack Obama, the democratic leadership overturned the internal equation in the Democratic Party and benefited from the Corona pandemic that halted the economy and erased the economic “achievements” that the US President was betting on. So the election title became the referendum on Trump’s personality and mismanagement in the face of the pandemic. From this angle, the Democratic Party scored a huge success.

The sixth fact is signs of weakness in the deep state. This may come as a surprise to many observers. It is true that it defeated Trump, but the cost of that victory may topple her. The deep state, its capabilities, and its alliance with the military, industrial and financial complex, and the technological oligarchy in communication and corporate media could not obtain a balanced majority in American society. The majority that the elected president obtained (a majority by blasting if it is permissible) is not a solid and solid majority, if it turns out that the announced results are correct and not subject to veto. However, these results reveal the weakness of the dominant American political discourse, which reflects the disruption of the ruling political elites from the actual reality.

The seventh and striking fact is the failure of the money spent in the elections to change the course of things. These elections achieved record numbers of financial spending, which, according to initial estimates, amounted to about 14.5 billion dollars, of which 6.5 billion were on the presidential elections and the rest on the US congressional elections. In South Carolina, for example, the Democratic Party spent about $ 100 million for its candidate against Sheikh Lindsay Graham, who is a hawk in the Republican Party. The Democratic candidate did not win, however, with record campaign spending. The same applies to a number of seats. In Florida, Michael Bloomberg spent more than $ 100 million defeating Trump in the state that Trump ultimately won. Among the major financiers of election campaigns are the owners of social media companies who have become major “players” in campaign finance.

The eighth fact is the emergence of the role of the Arab and Islamic voice in the elections. That sound was the owl of the shrew in the swing states of Michigan and Minnesota that tipped the balance of power in favor of Vice President Biden. President Trump reaped the results of his discriminatory policies against the Arab and Islamic community. The credit for that mobilization is due to young women in the Democratic Party and within the US Congress, such as Rashida Tlaib and Han Omar, in bringing the most likely votes in favor of Biden.

In the end, it can be said in the preliminary assessment of the results of the US elections that there are many losers. Of course, in the first place the current president, Donald Trump. However, there is a loss for the Democratic Party at the level of the House of Representatives, which witnessed a significant decline in its majority in the House of Representatives or the Representatives, and did not obtain a majority in the Senate. The American media and public opinion polling companies, which over the course of two elections failed to read the mood of the American electorate, too. It is true that she was right about Biden winning, but she failed in the size of the success just as she failed on the issue of the “blue wave” that was supposed to sweep the US Congress. As for the deep state that “triumphed” over those who came from outside the political flock, the cost of its victory may be exorbitant because of the associated vibration in the credibility of its components. Therefore a separate conversation for later.

الانتخابات الأميركيّة: قراءة خارج السياق

زياد حافظ

تمّ إعلان نتائج الانتخابات الرئاسية بقوز نائب الرئيس السابق جوزيف بايدن وسط انقسام شعبي كبير بين مؤيّد ومناهض للرئيس الأميركي دونالد ترامب. لن ندخل في السجال حول «شرعية» النتائج ومصداقية عملية الفرز، لكن بغضّ النظر عن ذلك السجال الذي له حيثياته ولكن لا يعنينا إلاّ بمقدار أنه يثبّت حالة الانقسام العميق في المجتمع الأميركي. فهناك حقائق عدّة أظهرتها الانتخابات الأميركية عن المشهد السياسي الداخلي الذي كنّا على مدى سنوات عديدة نرصده ونتوقع وصوله إلى الحال هذا. نعم، لم نفاجأ بما حصل بل توقعناه لأن ما حصل يعكس التحوّلات التي حصلت وما زالت داخل المجتمع الأميركي أو بشكل أدقّ داخل المجتمعات الأميركية. توقعنا أن الرئيس الأميركي دونالد ترامب أقوى مما كان يعتقده خصومه الداخليون والخارجيون ورغم شراسة الحملة الانتخابية وكما توقّعنا أنّ سجالاً قد يدور حول مصداقية عملية الفرز بسبب الانقسام الداخلي. فليس هناك أميركا واحدة بل على الأقلّ أميركتان إن لم تكن عدّة «أميركات» إذا جاز الكلام. فالانقسام الأميركي هو عموديّ وأفقي. والعوامل هي طبقية أولاً وإلا يريد الاعلام الأميركيّ الإقرار بذلك لسبب واضح، فهو مملوك من ست شركات فقط، أي هناك رأي واحد يُفرض على المواطن الأميركي، لذلك يتمّ تجاهل البعد الطبقي في المجتمعات الأميركية. العنصر الثاني هو العرق، والثالث هو الدين، والرابع هو الثقافة، والخامس هو الجغرافيا حيث سكّان المدن الكبيرة يختلفون عن سكّان المدن الوسطى والصغيرة والريف بشكل عام، والتي كنّا أشرنا إليها في السابق ولن نكرّرها هنا. لكن نعتقد أنه من المفيد استخلاص الحقائق التي أظهرتها الانتخابات الأميركيّة.

الحقيقة الأولى هو ترهّل النظام السياسي القائم في الولايات المتحدة المرتكز إلى نظام حزبين حاكمين يتداولان السلطة بين فترة وأخرى، وفقاً لمعطيات ظرفية ووفقا لدور بعض الفروقات في السياسة العامة الداخلية والخارجية. لكن الحزبين متفقان على رؤية واحدة لطبيعة النظام القائم والذي يحمي أوّلاً وأخيراً رأس المال ويسخّر القانون والسياسة وبالتالي العدل لمصلحة رأس المال. كما أن الحزبين يشتركان في رؤية واحدة حول استمرار الإمبراطورية وسياسة الهيمنة. لكن هذا النظام الذي تكوّن خلال قرنين من الزمن ضمن موازين سكّانية محدّدة وضمن موازين قوّة اقتصادية واجتماعية معيّنة، فهذا النظام لم يعد قادراً على استيعاب التحوّلات السكّانية التي حصلت والتي أشار إليها بوضوح صامويل هنتنغتون. فالأخير قال في آخر مؤلّف له قبل رحيله: «انسوا صراع الحضارات فما يهدّد الولايات المتحدة هو فقدان هويتها البيضاء الانكلوبروتستنتية» لصالح هويات أخرى كالهوية الهسبانية الكاثوليكية على سبيل المثال وربما هويات أخرى آسيوية.

وبالفعل، فإنّ التحوّلات السكانية تشير إلى أنّ معدّل النمو السكّاني في الولايات المتحدة أصبح دون المعدّل المطلوب للحفاظ على وجودها وبالتالي لا بد من فتح باب الهجرة. وملف الهجرة، الشرعيّة وغير الشرعية، ملفّ معقد ويحتاج إلى مقاربة منفصلة ولكنه في متن الخلاف بين الحزبين المتنافسين. فالحزب الجمهوري يريد تقنين الهجرة وفقاً لمعايير ليس هناك من إجماع أو اتفاق حولها، وبينما الحزب الديمقراطي الذي يريد فتح باب الهجرة لضمان أولاً يد عاملة رخيصة تضمن خفض الأجور وتدعم رأس المال ولاعتقاده بأن التنوّع العرقي يصبّ في مصلحة الحزب على الصعيد السياسي الانتخابي. لذلك أصبح الحزب الجمهوري حزب أكثرية بيضاء تعتبر حالها مهمّشة في مجتمع العولمة الذي روّجت له قيادات ليبرالية في الحزب الديمقراطي على مدى عقدين من الزمن بينما تحوّل الحزب الديمقراطي إلى حزب التنوّع العرقي والديني ولكن بقيادة ليبرالية معظمها بيضاء وليست بالضرورة على تماهي مع مستلزمات التنوّع.

من جهة أخرى لم يعد بقدرة الحزبين استيعاب التحوّلات الاقتصادية بسبب الجنوح نحو عولمة استفادت منها الشركات الكبرى والأوليغارشية المالية والتكنولوجية ولكن على حساب العامل الأميركي. فتراجع الوظائف في القطاعات الإنتاجية الأساسية والتحوّل نحو اقتصاد افتراضي ريعي مبني على المضاربات المالية والعقارية أدّى إلى انفصام بين الاقتصاد العيني ومسار الأسواق المالية. فالبورصة في ميل والبطالة في ميل آخر. والحزبان ساهما عبر العقود في ذلك التحوّل إلى أن وصل دونالد ترامب وحاول استرجاع الوظائف الصناعية التي صُدّرت إلى دول الجنوب بشكل عام. لكنه اصطدم بقوّة المصالح المرتبطة بالنموذج الاقتصادي النيوليبرالي الذي أدّى إلى تمركز المال والإعلام بيد شركات لا يزيد عددها عن أصابع اليد الواحدة. من هنا موجة الاستياء العام الذي نجح ترامب في استغلالها سنة 2016 وكاد ينجح في انتخابات 2020 لولا كورونا وسوء إدارته للجائحة التي أطاحت بفرص نجاحه لولايّة ثانية. لكن في المحصّلة ظهر تيّار شعبوي لا يمكن تجاهله ولا يستطيع الحزبان ضبطه ما ينذر إما بتشظّي الحزبين أو ظهور حزب ثالث شعبويّ يعكس الحالة الترامبية التي ظهرت خلال السنوات الأربع الماضية.

الخلل في النظام الحاكم ظهر مرّتين على التوالي: المرّة الأولى في الانتخابات الرئاسية سنة 2016 والثانية هذه السنة حيث الخيارات المفروضة على الناخب الأميركي كانت أن يختار بين من هو أقلّ سوءاً وليس من هو أفضل، وليس لمن له البرنامج السياسي والاقتصادي والاجتماعي الذي يحاكي تطلّعات الأميركيين والتحوّلات التي حصلت خلال العقود الأربعة الماضية. ويتساءل المراقب لماذا وصل المشهد السياسي إلى هذا الحال والإجابة تكون في طبيعة النظام الذي يحكمه المال والمصالح الخاصة ولن يأتي إلاّ بمن يعلن الولاء الكامل له. فالأكثرية الساحقة من السياسيّين والعاملين في الشأن العام مدينة بمواقعها لمن موّلها وليس لمن انتخبها. وبطبيعة الحال تصبح «النخب» المنتخبة بهذه الطريقة في منتهى الرداءة كم نراه في الخط البياني المتدحرج منذ أكثر من أربعين سنة. فالرئيس يكون إما فاسداً أخلاقياً أو جاهلاً أو الاثنين معاً. و»النظيف» بينهم تكون رذائله مخفيًة أو تمّ التستّر عنها. فالإعلام المهيمن الشركاتي تجاهل بشكل متعمّد فساد المرشّح بايدن الذي أصبح «رئيساً» وركّز على فساد الرئيس الحالي. وكما يُقال في العامية أن الأخير «جسمه لبّيس». فضيحة موقع «الانترسبت» اليساري الهوى والمؤيّد لبايدن رفض نشر تحقيق حول فساد بايدن وعائلته. والرئيس الحالي جاء من خارج السياق المعتاد وبالتالي كانت ولايته حرب مستمرّة مع الدولة العميقة لأنه أراد أن يكسر الحلفة المفرغة. بالمقابل فالمرشّح بايدن، وقبله هيلاري كلنتون وباراك أوباما وجورج بوش الابن وبيل كلنتون، من رحم البيئة الفاسدة التي تنتج النخب الحاكمة في الولايات المتحدة. ويمكن القول عبر النتائج المعلنة إنّ الدولة العميقة انتصرت على ترامب ولكن الكلفة قد تكون باهظة للغاية.

الحقيقة الثانية هي خسارة هيبة الولايات المتحدة. فأحد المواقع الإلكترونيّة المؤيّدة لبايدن وصفت عملية الفرز الانتخابية بـ «المهزلة» التي أفقدت مصداقية وهيبة الولايات المتحدة التي فقدتها في رأينا منذ فترة، ولكن مسرحية الانتخابات كانت بمثابة الإعلان الرسمي عن سقوط أوهام مصداقية النظام القائم في الولايات المتحدة. وحتى الناطق غير الرسمي باسم العولمة والنيوليبرالية توماس فريدمان كتب أن «أميركا سقطت» في هذه الدورة من الانتخابات. وما يدور من شكوك، بل ربما أكثر من شكوك، حول «سرقة» الانتخابات (كما يقول بول كريغ روبرتس ومعه آخرون) سيساهم في تفاقم أزمة سياسيّة قد تنذر بنهاية الولايات المتحدة كما نعرفها وخلق كيان مختلف عما كان. فهناك معركة جديدة ستظهر في سبيل «شرعية» جديدة قد لا تحظى بإجماع الأميركيين وستزيد في تفاقم الانقسام.

هنا لا بدّ من بعض التوضيح. ما حصل بعد انتخابات 2016 سيتكرّر بعد 2020. الفريق الخاسر لن يقبل بنتائج الاقتراع. الحزب الديمقراطي بادر منذ اللحظات الأولى بعد انتخاب ترامب ومعه الإعلام المهيمن الشركاتي إلى العمل على إسقاط ترامب لأنه فوجئ بفوز ترامب. وإذا صدقت وعود ترامب فسيحاول الطعن بالنتائج في المحاكم الاتحادية والفئات المتشدّدة في قاعدته الانتخابية قد تعلن رفضها لتلك النتائج. هذا ما قصده فريدمان وهذا ما يجب الانتباه إليه أي العملية الديمقراطية أصبحت محطّة تشكيك. فما البديل؟

الحقيقة الثالثة هي ضرب مصداقية الإعلام المهيمن الشركاتي الذي قاد الحملة على ترامب عبر شركات الاستطلاع التي أوهمت العالم بفوز بايدن بفارق كبير وكأن النتائج محسومة مسبقاً قبل الاقتراع! جاءت النتائج الفعلية لتدحض تلك التوقّعات ولتؤكّد أن ترامب ليس ظاهرة عابرة بل انعكاس لمزاج أميركي خارج السياق التقليدي وله وزنه على الصعيد الشعبي. فالأصوات التي حصدها ترامب تجاوزت الأصوات التي حصلت عليها هيلاري كلنتون بمليونين ما يدلّ أن المؤيدين لترامب ليسوا فقط من الذين يرفضون هيلاري كلنتون. أثبتت الانتخابات أن المزاج الأميركي يختلف عمّا يصوّره الاعلام المهيمن الذي فقد مهنيته في تغطية الحملة وكان معبّراً عن رأي واحد فقط. وبغض النظر عن النتائج الرسمية فإنّ ترامب تحوّل من رئيس للولايات المتحدة إلى زعيم سياسي شعبي لما يُسمّى بأميركا الحمراء أيّ الولايات في الداخل التي أدلت بصوتها لصالحه. وذلك رغم العيوب الواضحة والفاضحة في كفاءته وسلوكه الشخصي الذي كان موضع سخرية وازدراء العديد من الأميركيين وغير الأميركيين. وقد يكون هذا التغيير مفصلياً في الحياة السياسية الأميركية حيث «الزعامة الشعبية» قد تكون في وجه «الشرعية الدستورية» وما يمكن أن ينتج عن ذلك من أزمة دستورية، إلى أزمة نظام، إلى أزمة كيان.

ومن ضمن إخفاقات استطلاعات الرأي العام هو عدم تحقيق «الموجة الزرقاء» التي كان من المفروض أن تجتاح الكونغرس. فالحزب الديمقراطي الذي كان يتوقّع ارتفاع أكثريته في مجلس النوّاب خسر مقاعد عدّة وقد يخسر أكثريته في الانتخابات النصفيّة المقبلة عام 2022، كما لم يستطع أن يحصل على الأكثرية في مجلس الشيوخ. شعبياً، خسر الحزب الديمقراطي الانتخابات وإن تمّ إعلان فوز بايدن بالرئاسة. فهذا «الفوز» مصداقيته مطعون بها شعبياً من قبل نصف الأميركيين تقريباً وقد يكون مطعوناً قضائياً. والانقسام السياسي قد يتعدّى حلبة المؤسسات الدستورية، أي الكونغرس، للحسم (العبثي) في الشارع. كل ذلك يعني أن حالة عدم استقرار أصبحت عنوان المرحلة الحالية والمقبلة في الولايات المتحدة. بالمقابل هناك مَن يعتبر أن الولايات المتحدة دولة مؤسسات وبعد موجة الغضب عند الفريق الخاسر ستعود الأمور إلى حالتها الطبيعية. هذه قراءة مبسّطة للمشهد الأميركي التي لا تأخذ بالتحوّلات التي ذكرناها أعلاه وسابقاً والتي تنذر بتلاشي التماسك الداخلي في إطار الشحّ الاقتصادي. فالحلم الأميركي الذي كان يصنع التماسك الداخلي قد سقط في محيط التناقضات والإخفاقات على الصعيد الداخلي والخارجي.

الحقيقة الرابعة هي الكثافة في الإقبال على التصويت من قبل المؤيّدين والمناهضين للرئيس الأميركي ما يدّل على عمق الانقسام القائم والذي أخذ طابع «كسر العظم». ليس من المؤكّد أن للرئيس المنتخب وفريقه قدرة على ردم الهوّة بين الفئتين من الشعب لأنه لا يملك خطابا وسياسة واضحة تستطيع محاكاة هواجس المواطنين. وإذا كان من المبكر إصدار الحكم فإن تاريخ الرجل وتاريخ نائب الرئيس المنتخب لا يوحي بأنهما يمتلكان رؤية للخروج من الأزمات البنيوية التي تواجه الأميركيين. فمن جائحة الكورونا إلى تداعياتها الاقتصادية، إلى قضايا الضمان الصحي، إلى ملف الهجرة والأمن الداخلي، إلى قضايا العنصرية، إلى قضايا المناخ، إلى إعادة تأهيل البنى التحتية المترهلة إلى قائمة طويلة من استحقاقات تمّ تجاهلها على مدى العقود الخمسة الماضية، أي منذ بداية السبعينيات، فكلّها تحتاج إلى رؤية شاملة. الخلاف بين القاعدة الشابة للحزب الديمقراطي والقيادة التي شاخت في الحزب يصعب ردمه. بالمقابل حالة الرفض للرؤية الديمقراطية لتلك الملفّات من قبل الناخبين الجمهوريين وخاصة في قضايا القيم والسلوك الاجتماعي لا توحي بأن هناك إمكانية في ردم الهاوية.

الحقيقة الخامسة هي أن جائحة كورونا أطاحت بالرئيس الأميركي. فلا ننسى أن في الانتخابات التمهيدية كان المرشح بايدن على وشك الخروج من حلبة الحملة الانتخابية وكان المتقدّم المرشّح برني سندرز. كما ان كمالا هاريس لم تحظ إلاّ بواحد بالمئة من أصوات الناخبين الديمقراطيين في الحملة الانتخابية ما يدلّ على أن انقلاباً ما حصل في مسار الانتخابات التمهيدية لإقصاء سندرز كما حصل سنة 2016 ولتعويم بايدن. استطاعت القيادة الديمقراطية بدعم كبير من باراك أوباما بقلب المعادلة الداخلية في الحزب الديمقراطي واستفادت من جائحة الكورونا التي أدّت إلى إيقاف عجلة الاقتصاد ومحو «الإنجازات» الاقتصادية التي كان يراهن عليها الرئيس الأميركي. فأصبح العنوان الانتخابي الاستفتاء حول شخص ترامب وسوء إدارته في مواجهة الجائحة. من هذه الزاوية سجّل الحزب الديمقراطي نجاحاً باهراً. لكن بالمقابل، هناك سكوت تام حول الملفّات الساخنة التي ستواجه الرئيس المنتخب والذي كان سبباً رئيسياً في إخفاق الحزب الديمقراطي في زيادة أكثريته في مجلس النوّاب وانتزاع الأكثرية في مجلس الشيوخ.

الحقيقة السادسة هي ظهور بوادر ضعف في الدولة العميقة. وهذه قد تكون مفاجأة للعديد من المراقبين. صحيح أنها انتصرت على ترامب لكن كلفة ذلك الانتصار قد يطيح بها. لم تستطع الدولة العميقة وما لديها من إمكانيات وتحالفها مع المجمع العسكري الصناعي والمالي والاوليغارشية التكنولوجية في التواصل والإعلام الشركاتي أن تحصل على أكثرية وازنة في المجتمع الأميركي. الأكثرية التي حصل عليها الرئيس المنتخب (أكثرية بالتدفيش إذا جاز الكلام) ليست أكثرية ثابتة وصلبة، هذا إذا ما تبيّن أن النتائج المعلنة صحيحة وغير قابلة للنقض. لكن هذه النتائج تكشف ضعف الخطاب السياسي الأميركي المهيمن الذي يعكس انقطاع النخب السياسية الحاكمة عن الواقع الفعلي.

الحقيقة السابعة واللافتة للنظر هي إخفاق المال المنفق في الانتخابات على تغيير مسار الأمور. حققت هذه الانتخابات أرقاماً قياسية في الإنفاق المالي والذي بلغ حسب التقديرات الأوّلية حوالي 14،5 مليار دولار، منها 6،5 مليار على الانتخابات الرئاسية والباقي على انتخابات الكونغرس الأميركي. ففي ولاية كارولينا الجنوبية على سبيل المثال أنفق الحزب الديمقراطي حوالي 100 مليون دولار لمرشّحها ضد الشيخ ليندساي غراهام وهو من الصقور في الحزب الجمهوري. لم يفلح المرشح الديمقراطي رغم ذلك الإنفاق القياسي في حملته الانتخابية. وكذلك الأمر بالنسبة لعدد من المقاعد. أما في ولاية فلوريدا أنفق مايكل بلومبرغ أكثر من 100 مليون دولار لهزيمة ترامب في الولاية التي ربحها ترامب في آخر المطاف. ومن المموّلين الكبار في الحملات الانتخابية أصحاب شركات التواصل الاجتماعي الذين أصبحوا «لاعبين» كبار في التمويل الانتخابي. لذلك على ما يبدو ففي المعارك المفصلية لا يكون المال العامل الفاصل كما كان في انتخابات سابقة التي لم تحظ بالأهمية التي شهدتها انتخابات 2020.

الحقيقة الثامنة هي بروز دور الصوت العربي والإسلامي في الانتخابات. كان ذلك الصوت بيضة القبّان في ولايتي ميشيغان ومينيسوتا المتأرجحة حيث قلب موازين القوّة لصالح نائب الرئيس بايدن. حصد الرئيس ترامب نتائج سياساته التمييزية ضد الجالية العربية والإسلامية. والفضل في تلك التعبئة يعود إلى الشابات في الحزب الديمقراطي وداخل الكونغرس الأميركي كرشيدة طليب والهان عمر في جلب الأصوات المرجّحة لصالح بايدن.

في النهاية يمكن القول في التقدير الأوّلي لنتائج الانتخابات الأميركية أن هناك خاسرين عديدين. طبعا، في الدرجة الأولى الرئيس الحالي دونالد ترامب. لكن هناك خسارة الحزب الديمقراطي على صعيد مجلس النوّاب الذي شهد تراجعاً ملحوظاً في اكثريته في مجلس الممثلين أو النوّاب ولم يحصل أيضاً على الأكثرية في مجلس الشيوخ. كما أخفق أيضاً الإعلام الأميركي وشركات استطلاع الرأي العام التي على مدى دورتين انتخابيتين أخفقت في قراءة مزاج الناخب الأميركي. صحيح أنها كانت محقة بشأن فوز بايدن ولكنها أخفقت في حجم النجاح كما أخفقت في موضوع «الموجة الزرقاء» التي كان من المفروض أن تجتاح الكونغرس الأميركي. أما الدولة العميقة التي «انتصرت» على من أتى من خارج السرب السياسي فكلفة انتصارها قد تكون باهظة بسبب ما رافقها من اهتزاز في مصداقية مكوّناتها. ولذلك حديث منفصل في وقت لاحق.

Legacy Ziomedia declares victory (+ Open Thread) (+UPDATE)

Legacy Ziomedia declares victory (+ Open Thread) (+UPDATE)

The Saker

November 07, 2020

In a closely coordinated move, the Dems and their legacy Ziomedia have declared Biden the victor of the presidential race. Likewise, the main US TV channels have cut off Trump during a White House press conference.

Before all the votes are counted and before the courts could decide which votes count or not.  In simple legal terms, this election is not over.

But we know that Dems don’t give a hoot about facts or the law.

I won’t even bother going into all the details about fraud here, I simply don’t have the time to do so, and other will do that much better than I could.  I will simply say that there is no doubt in my mind that with so many states and counties reporting both tiny differences between the two candidates AND observers reporting how the Dems used what is called the “administrative resource” in Russia (i.e. their control of key states, voting locations and of the USPS), I personally am convinced that Trump and Giuliani are correct in their assessment that massive fraud has taken place.

This is an extremely dangerous situation for the USA.  Why?  Because whether Trump prevails in the courts or not, the Dems have already declared victory and are now celebrating.  So there are two main options ahead:

  1. Trump loses in the courts, and half of the country will feel that this election has been stolen
  2. Trump wins in the courts, and the other half of the country will feel that this elections has been stolen

Bottom line is this: the Dems will probably prevail in the end, I don’t believe that Trump has what it takes to prevail against the united US Nomenklatura, he is no Putin, that is for sure.  But Biden would make a very convincing Eltsin (if not Chernenko), and from the ensuing chaos other, far more courageous and charismatic individuals will emerge.

This is clearly the worst possible outcome for this country and the only thing standing between this outcome and us is the US Supreme Court.

I am not optimistic but, who knows, maybe a miracle will happen.

The Saker

PS: Giuliani’s latest statement:

UPDATE:

I just took a look at what Fox News is reporting and, thankfully, they are openly celebrating!!!

Which, yet again, goes to prove that most of Fox also hates Trump (with a few exceptions) and that Murdoch’s channel never was even remotely pro-Trump.  Chris Wallace, especially, could not contain his joy and he actually openly said that considering the pressure created by the news announcement that Biden had won, it would be very hard for any judge to disagree.  So, finally, we have it.  Trump and his “deplorables” on one side, the entire US Nomenklatura on the other.  Trump, in spite of being the President, could not use any “administrative resource” whereas his enemies did.  For four years.  Nonstop.  And after 4 years of incredibly divisive, and completely false accusation, Biden took to the air yesterday and declared that he wants to unite the nation.

How stupid does he (meaning his handlers, of course) think the “deplorables” are?

I would be surprised of the judges on the USSC would have the courage to uphold the law.  Thus I have to assume that by hook or by crook the Dems will take the White House and President Harris will run the country come January.  Trump will probably not only be gone, the regime will attack him and his supporters full force and try to get him convicted of something (since “beating Hillary” is not a criminal offense, they will try to get him for something else).

There will be an especially virulent attack on the First and Second Amendments of the Constitution, which is most distressing since these two amendments are the cornerstones of the entire US Constitution.

The USA as we knew it until now are dead, we now will live under a very different regime.

But half of the country, tens of millions of people, will not disappear.  The resistance will probably go to the state level next, and to the courts.  Last, but not least, a lot of US Americans will feel that they are now living under a globalist tyranny.  I can’t say that they are wrong.  But I do fear the very serious consequences of this realization.

The Saker

PS: I want to reassure the readers about one thing: four years of Trump has given enough time for Russia to truly finalize her preparations for a full-scale war against the US/NATO/EU.  Russia’s armed forces are so far ahead of the US military that it would take a decade or more, and money which the US does not have, to even try to catch up.  That train (attack on Russia) has now left.  So while Biden and his gang will continue the Russia-hating rhetoric, the petty harassment (taking consular buildings, arresting Russian citizens, even more Russia-strengthening (yes, that has been the real effect of US sanctions) sanctions, etc.), they won’t dare to attack Russia directly, not even in Syria (which Hillary would have done, take that to the bank).  I don’t see an attack on China, Iran or Venezuela either.  An attack to “restore democracy” on Saint Kitts and Nevis or, maybe, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, is still a real possibility, I suppose.

Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi: Macron Is Nothing But Puppet of Jewish Zionists

english.almasirah.net:Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi: Macron Is Nothing But  Puppet of Jewish Zionists

The leader of the revolution, Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi, said that the Islamic nation today is fraught with problems and crises, and the occasion of the Prophet’s birthday should be a station to face these challenges.

In his speech on the occasion of Prophet Mohammed birthday (PBUH), Sayyed Abdulmalik added that the cause of all the major problems and corruption that our nation and human society suffer from is the deviation from the Prophet’s message.

Regarding the French insult to the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and the position of the French President Emmanuel Macron towards Islam, Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi said: Macron is nothing but a puppet of the Jewish Zionists, and they push him to insult Islam and the Messenger (PBUH).

The leader stressed that the tyrants US, Israel and their alliance are an extension of the distortion of the straight path, adding that the Western regime that permits insulting God and prophets, and prevents unveiling the plots of the Zionist Jews, is a witness to the control of the Zionist lobby over Western regimes and media.

Regarding the issue of normalization and between some Arab countries with the Zionist entity, Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi explained that declaring these deals is a betrayal and participating with enemies to target the nation.

He added that the Saudi authorities allowed the Jews flights while besieging the Yemeni people and imprisoning the free Palestinian people only because of their rightful stance against the Israeli enemy. He added that the Saudi, Emirati, Al Khalifa and the Sudanese regimes are partners with US and Israel in their plots.

About the assassination of the Minister Hassan Zaid, Sayyed Al-Houthi describes it as brutal, holding the Saudi aggression coalition responsible for the crime.

Jews Frustrated They Can’t Silence Their Critics The Way They Used To When They Monopolized All Media

Source

OCTOBER 16, 2020

The Jewish News Syndicate has published another essay demonstrating the incorrigible Jewish hypocrisy and narcissism over free speech — they applaud the recent Facebook censorship of “Holocaust deniers” based solely on the spurious presumption that anyone who wants to know the full truth about what did and did not happen in World War II must necessarily be motivated solely by an irrational, blind hatred of Jews:

…The Internet is the best thing that ever happened to extremists. Prior to its development, denizens of the fever swamps of the far-right and the far-left were limited in their ability to communicate with each other or to publicize their beliefs.

Marginal groups were effectively silenced in an era when print, radio and television outlets were closed to them because major publishing entities acted as gatekeepers that effectively shut them out of the public square. While the Internet opened up new opportunities for communication for every conceivable niche and interest group, and thereby democratized publishing, it also provided a way for hate groups to connect and gave them a megaphone with which to make their toxic messages better known.

That was enabled because Facebook and Twitter were allowed by an obscure legal provision to avoid accountability for what they allowed to be published on their sites. Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act allowed an “interactive computer service” to be exempt from the normal perils of publishing—i.e., being held accountable for what was put on their sites. This both protected free speech on the Internet and allowed those responsible for what were thought of as bulletin boards for users, rather than publishing outlets to function without tackling the impossible task of monitoring what their customers were doing. Although the development of social media was far in the future at that point, Section 230 was the law that enabled Facebook and Twitter to eventually dominate modern communications.

In the view of those who are concerned about the spread of hate, that was all well and good when it was just a matter of providing billions of people the ability to post pictures and updates about their lives. Eventually, however, the notion of Zuckerberg, whose current wealth is estimated at $111 billion, enriching himself by enabling Holocaust deniers was seen as intolerable. They felt the same way about Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, who is only worth a piddling $4.9 billion…

Of course the original 1996 Communications Decency Act had less to do with “freedom of speech” on the internet per se — it was about protecting children from all the freely available Jewish-produced pornography that was beginning flood into every home in America.

But let’s not forget that it was Jews who have always defended the proliferation of pornography as a form of “free speech” — a complete twisting of the intent of the First Amendment.

And the Section 230 clause that was added to the CDA was a common sense law that made ISPs legally immune for what user’s posted on their websites — without that indemnity, the internet would collapse.

But Section 230 took away the Jews’ go-to tool to silence voices they didn’t like — sue the publisher — make the publication of certain opinions a prohibitive economic liability — the terrible power of the Jewish purse.

Jews view opinions they don’t like in the same way that Christians view pornography — radically different worldviews.

They are demanding their “right” to censor content that offends them –and pedophilia doesn’t offend them but your opinion probably does.

Oh, they are all for “freedom of speech” and “democracy” as long as they own all the publishing houses and television stations — and “count all the votes.”

To do that end, they need to effectively de-claw Section 230 — and by doing so, they can regain their pre-internet monopoly as the sole “gatekeepers” of all opinions and information– and they are doing just that.

The Failed Saudi War

The Failed Saudi War

By Ahmed Fouad

Throughout history – from the ancient empires and the priests of the pharaohs, to modern times, via pictures and screens – countries and regimes worldwide have been striving to justify the wars they wage and give various reasons for resorting to arms, as well as, trying to mark every single fault of their enemy, giving their soldiers and officials the grounds for heroism.

Inside and outside Yemen, the hopeless Saudi-American war is marching towards its sixth year, with an unprecedented intention to a bloody failure and complete fall. Saudi Arabia and its allies are increasing their craziness, trying to divert attention from the crimes against humanity by committing more horrible crimes. The pretext here is: national security, the concept that Riyadh, Abu Dhabi and Cairo are always hanging on to. They are all fighting Yemenis to protect their national security while they are groveling to Netanyahu! The war against Yemen is the same as any war that happened in history; not more than leaders seeking a “monumental” and peerless military achievement that would legitimize their victory. During a historical crisis that all Arabic regimes are experiencing, the Zionist entity became their friend, ally and brother, in the face of people who are materially the poorest in the Arab Region and Arabian Peninsula.

Starting with the western media, the American primarily and the European secondly, Gulf regimes fought the first battle, led by bin Zayed and bin Salman, to buy consciences and stances, succeeding to make the war against Yemen tenable through the world. It wasn’t harder in the Arab World as Qatar joined them with its channels at the beginning of the war, then it encouraged other countries such as Egypt and Sudan to join the alliance.

At the beginning of the war, more than 5 years ago, all stances were ready to be sold, and the money of Al Saud and Al Zayed was ready to buy them. They succeeded to mark their missiles, tanks and warships by “morality” and direct them towards a defenseless nation.

The leadership of the aggression alliance achieved what appeared to be the media victory, in the inauguration of its military campaign against Yemen. All voices that had been opposing the war were silent, or silenced.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates tried so hard to conceal their intervention in Yemen using the moral cover in a region which, looking at everyone and everything in it, seems like a slaughterhouse. No matter how much they might try to beautify themselves, they will never seem peaceful. As it proceeded, the war continued to exhaust the capacity of the two states, which everyone thought endless.

As the years went by, Saudi Arabia squandered its affluent treasury, including the wealth and capacities, for the sake of the alliance and the Arab fascist regimes, and it didn’t stop squandering in the fear of a remarkable Yemeni victory that would firstly deprive it from the opportunity of enthroning the heir presumptive; secondly give Yemen the opportunity of looking at historical demands concerning regions that the Yemenis consider to be unfairly taken from them in earlier stages; and most significantly, grant Yemen the ability to demonstrate its powerful model that just beat all the Gulf states.

The Saudi treasury, that today seems to be in miserable conditions, is deepening the woes of Al Saud. Just before the war against Yemen, at the end of 2014, all the external debts owed by the SA were around $12 billion, worth nothing for the world’s richest state.

Only 5 years later, these debts increased by 1400%, according to data from the World Bank, which unmasked a record high in the debts owed by Saudi Arabia that reached $150 billion in 2018, then $183 billion at the end of 2019, and it goes on and on. It is the Yemeni victory, not the defeat of Saudi Arabia that would haunt rulers in Riyadh and Abu Dhabi.

As the war progressed, the Gulf media failed, in parallel with the military failure, to continue marshalling opinions that convict Yemenis and their armed forces. The available pictures of mass destruction in Yemen shows the scale of the Arab crime, whether by contributing or staying silent. International actors finally started to draw attention by sharing chilling reports about the humanitarian situation in all Yemeni regions. Nothing could be more evident than the UNICEF’s report concerning the disaster, as it says that “Every single hour, a mother and 6 children are killed throughout Yemen, and because of the maritime and airborne barbaric blockades of Yemen by the alliance, health services have completely collapsed, and it is difficult to obtain medical supplies or buy and import medicine and equipment!”

Since the war has been prolonged, it is obviously an end in itself. It uses the importation of arms, in a region that doesn’t fear any external or internal threats, as a large door for commissions and enormous profits. And with the drain of the war, all Gulf people’s properties became under the control of Western arms furnishers. The treason is now completed. On the economic side: the war caused the waste of enormous opportunities in an era where petroleum is missing its decisive influence and its incomes are declining, and on the social side: the abundant arms like a sword hanging over the heads of those who refuse to be loyal to furnishers, or think outside the box to which they are supposed to stick.

Only now, all imaginations that anyone could control Yemen over have become a well-established fact, more than being a future expectation. Today, everyone knows and conceives that the end will not be in Sanaa or Aden; but the beginning of the end will be in Jizan and Najran, and the absolute end will be in Riyadh.

Why Does The World Ignore «Israeli» Violations of Lebanese Sovereignty?

Why Does The World Ignore «Israeli» Violations of Lebanese Sovereignty?

By Denijal Jegic, TRT

Last week, civilians in several towns on Lebanon’s southern border were faced with illumination flares and phosphorus munitions fired by the “Israeli” army into Lebanese territory.

The “Israeli” regime initially spoke of a “security incident” and later announced it was conducting strikes on “Hezbollah posts” without presenting any evidence.

Numerous international media outlets adopted official “Israeli” statements as headlines. It became breaking news that “Israel” took action “in response” to fire coming from Hezbollah. Lebanese narratives remain absent, as does “Israel’s” structural aggression.

But Tuesday’s incident and the reactions to it are part of a familiar pattern.

While international media focuses on the tense situation at the border every once in a while, “Israeli” incursions into Lebanon are neither new nor accidental. “Israel” violates Lebanese sovereignty several times a day, as the “Israeli” military infiltrates Lebanon by land, sea, and air.

Within the first five months of 2020, the Lebanese government registered over 1,000 “Israeli” violations of Lebanese sovereignty by land, sea, and air. The “Israeli” army has also repeatedly used Lebanese airspace to launch airstrikes on Syria.

“Israeli” military jets and spy drones are omnipresent. In fact, they have become part of the landscape in the south of Lebanon and are often heard and felt in Beirut as well. “Israeli” incursions include mock raids and reconnaissance flights.

Whether “Israel” intends to scare or intimidate civilians, collect intelligence, or provoke a reaction from Hezbollah, “Israeli” violations of Lebanese sovereignty are a form of state violence that affects millions of people daily – in particular the country’s south with its majority Shia population.

Lebanon has, on several occasions filed complaints at the United Nations, to no avail. Lebanon’s Supreme Defense Council condemned the latest Israeli assault and announced it would bring the issue again to the UN.

“Israeli” violations of Lebanese sovereignty and international law are a continuous component of “Israel’s” structural aggression towards Lebanon. This aggression needs to be viewed within the colonial and expansionist nature of the “Israeli” regime in Palestine and its role as a US proxy whose supremacy is guaranteed by its Western allies.

“Israeli”-Lebanese tensions precede the formation of Hezbollah by more than three decades. Lebanon and “Israel” have been officially at war since 1948 when the Zionist movement proclaimed the “state of ‘Israel’” in Palestine and forcefully expelled the majority of Palestinians into neighboring countries.

“Israel” has had a destabilizing and destructive impact on Lebanon and played a significant role in the Lebanese Civil War. “Israel” kept South Lebanon under military occupation until the year 2000, with help from its local proxies. In 2006, “Israel” launched another war against Lebanon, targeting civilians and the country’s infrastructure.

Hezbollah, which in the 1980s emerged as a resistance and liberation movement against the “Israeli” occupation and “Israeli” proxies in south Lebanon, has naturally been labelled a “terrorist organization” by “Israel” and its allies.

The “Israeli” threats continue today. Genocidal provocations accompany “Israeli” military jets in Lebanese skies. In the past years, some “Israeli” officials have threatened to destroy Lebanon altogether and bomb Lebanon back to the Middle Ages or the Stone Age.

On social media, “Israeli government-linked accounts continue to ridicule Lebanese in general, and the country’s Shia population, in particular. Israel made clear it would target all of Lebanon – not only Hezbollah.

Meanwhile, several Western journalists and correspondents in Beirut rarely address this issue in detail. While the daily incursions of the “Israeli” military in Lebanon are nearly entirely absent from foreign media coverage, there seems to be a significant emphasis on Hezbollah’s reactions.

When Hezbollah shot down an “Israeli” drone that was illegally infiltrating South Lebanon last week, there was some “breaking news.” But, like with Tuesday’s incident, there is a tendency among many Western media outlets to base their headlines on official “Israeli” statements.

This is in line with “Israel’s” colonial tactic of dehumanizing indigenous peoples, which is shared by “Israel’s” Western allies.

Tel Aviv usually presents any “Israeli” attack against Lebanon as a necessary self-defense against “terrorism.” This is not different from “Israel’s” violence in Gaza or the West Bank, where every Palestinian victim is either in advance or posthumously rhetorically converted into a terrorist, i.e., a legitimate target. Resistance is terrorism, and civilian homes are terrorist strongholds.

In Lebanon, those that “Israel” warplanes target are rarely presented as human beings, civilians, as survivors of previous “Israeli” violence, but rather as part of terrorist infrastructure. Sometimes even their indigeneity in Lebanon and loyalty to the country is questioned, as supporters of Hezbollah are referred to as “Iranian” agents.

There is of course, also a strategic component to “Israel’s” ongoing violations of Lebanese sovereignty. Hezbollah remains “Israel’s” nearest threat. Tel Aviv has, along with other US proxies and partners, aggressively pushed for a broader conflict against Hezbollah, Iran, and their allies.

The “Israeli” army has also seemed nervous about a potential retaliation by Hezbollah, ever since the IOF [“Israeli” Occupation Forces] killed Hezbollah member Ali Kamel Mohsen through an airstrike in Syria in July.

Following the assassination, the IOF has shown increased activity at the Lebanese border. On several occasions, “Israeli” residents have been ordered to stay indoors, and roads have been closed heightening fear that there may be an escalation.

We also have to pay attention to the ongoing protests against “Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is on trial for corruption. An increasingly desperate Netanyahu keen on presenting himself as a hero defending “Israel” may well like to see a skirmish with Hezbollah or increase violations of Lebanese sovereignty to sure up his beleaguered position at home.

One thing is for sure the so-called Hezbollah threat is a potential lifeline for Netanyahu one that he is likely to grasp firmly with grave consequences for Lebanon.

Sayyed Nasrallah: One “I Have Only Seen Beauty” Frustrates the Goal Millions of Dollars Were Put to Achieve

 August 29, 2020

Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah

Al-Manar Website Editor

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah assured on the eve of Ashura that our tools of confrontation in the battle we are facing today are our honesty, religious, political and moral commitment and wise presence in media.

His eminence assured that the battle we are facing today is unprecedented since the last 50 years.

“Due to the big role that media plays today, they follow a strategy in which they wage huge attacks through different media outlets all at once. This is because the administration of this wide campaign in one, so you see the same news on different media outlets and newspapers. The battle today is one of the most critical ones after they have failed on the security, military and political levels.”

“For example if an accident occurs in some place like Lebanon, Iran, or Iraq, statements are released, then they suddenly spread more and more, and if you trace the source of these statements you will find the 80% of them are from Saudi Arabia or Emirates or other countries. So these sentences are not from the people of the country in which the accident took place, this is rather an electronic army that is trying to impose a public opinion on the people of this country. Today journalists themselves assure that they are being offered money or monthly payments in return for writing articles against Hezbollah.

“It is our duty to confront by developing our media capacities and presence, and as Imam Khameni said, each of us should be an officer or a soldier in this soft war. We must hold on to our honesty, clean hands, virtuousness, our moral, religious, and political commitment, and our loyalty, etc… This frustrates all the attacks. When our environment reveals itself as a firmly coherent and strong one, this frustrates them.”

“Many social media and media outlets were cut from funds for a period of time because they failed to achieve the goal of prompting our environment against us. Now because there is a new battle, funds are being distributed once again. So the coherence of this environment is our weapon. For example when they try to take advantage of our martyrs’ families, just one stance like “I have only seen beauty” is capable of frustrating the goal that hundreds of millions of dollars were paid for media to achieve.”

“After all lying has an end, just like the events after the port explosion. Some claimed it was a missile storehouse related to Hezbollah, but eventually the truth was revealed after investigations by the Army, FBI and international intelligence.”

“I call for boycotting such media outlets, checking the credibility of all the news and avoiding the spread of rumors whether they are true or false. There is also no need to show any interest in any report that does not help. This is just a waste of time. It is better if you help yourself by following programs of benefit for you like documentaries…”

In conclusion his eminence assured that “neither killing nor threatening us will let us surrender… Moreover, we were offered huge amounts of money in order to abandon our cause but we haven’t and wouldn’t accept. We are not position or money seekers. We are the ones who offer money just as we offered blood.”

How Israel views the Beirut explosion and Hezbollah’s involvement

Posted on  by Elijah J Magnier

By Elijah J. Magnier: @ejmalrai

“Hezbollah controls the Harbour of Beirut and is knowledgeable of everything happening in it. It uses its influence to smuggle its shipments through and prefers to keep these shipments at the harbour to prevent Israel from bombing them.”

“Hezbollah controls Lebanon and forced the choice of General Michel Aoun as a President and of Hassan Diab as a Prime Minister. Moreover, through its influence in the parliament and the cabinet, it is enforcing the protection of its arsenal and of its presence as a powerful armed organisation”.

“Israel will use its influence to prevent any financial support from reaching Lebanon unless it is conditioned on the disarming and dissolution of Hezbollah and prevention of its participation in the forthcoming Lebanese government”.

“The international community should prevent Iran from helping Lebanon to reconstruct its infrastructure or to offer financial support to the country; it should keep tight control over all cash flows reaching the government.”

“The international community should prevent Iran from taking advantage of the weakness of Lebanon and stop it from helping the Lebanese.”

Israeli media, military analysts and official commanders commented in these terms on the Beirut harbour explosion of 4th August. The explosion was caused by negligence and lack of regard for public safety. 2,755 tons of Ammonium Nitrate (AN) – classified as dangerous goods– were left at the harbour in 2013 while local officials and judges threw the ball of responsibility at one another until it exploded. The AN (NH4NO3) widely used as fertiliser but is also a component in many types of mining explosives if mixed with fuel oil or detonated by an explosive charge.  AN does not burn on its own but acts as a source of oxygen to accelerate the burning of other materials. It is the rapid release of gases that causes an explosion if an intense fire ignites nearby. This is indeed what happened: at Beirut harbour, several tons of ignited combustible materials were left and firefighters tried to control the fire that had started an hour before someone realised it.

Israeli Foreign Minister GhabiAshenazi said “Hezbollah is acting in urban and populated territories and using Lebanese citizens as human shields as we saw in the unfortunate event last week. Hezbollah is responsible for the explosion of the harbour.”

Israeli Prime Minister said, “in order to avoid disasters like the one at Beirut port, we have to confiscate the explosives and missiles that Hezbollah has hidden in civilian population centres in Lebanon.”

Most Israeli officials and analysts concluded that Hezbollah is much weaker today and, therefore, should remain outside the forthcoming government. They considered the resignation of Prime Minister (now caretaker) Hassan Diab as a positive step for Israel because he was leading a “Hezbollah cabinet”.

Israeli officials called “for the rapid formation of new government excluding Hezbollah so Diab doesn’t remain for long as a caretaker.” It seems the general opinion among experts in Israel is that the political power in Lebanon will definitely change in favour of Israel’s objectives in Lebanon and the Middle East.

There should be grave doubts regarding the Israeli assessment, which is superficial and indicates little knowledge of Lebanese internal dynamics. Most of what the Israeli media and analysts said is taken from the Arabic and Gulf media hostile to Hezbollah, expressing wishful thinking and part of their general anti-Hezbollah propaganda.

Significantly, Israel’s own intelligence reports undermine the general conclusions of these analysts. They say, in no uncertain terms, that “no adequate options are available to indicate Hezbollah’s position has been weakened. All previous attempts have so far failed to isolate Hezbollah and to undermine its power.”

Israeli media analysts, like many Lebanese and Arab leaders and writers, failed completely to explain how a weak country like Lebanon could disarm Hezbollah, “one of the strongest armies in the Middle East”, according to Benny Gantz. Hezbollah is considered the only protector of the south of Lebanon against Israel’s ambitions and the defender of the Lebanese oil and gas rights in the Mediterranean. The US and Israel called for the disarmament of Hezbollah but offered no means for the Lebanese army to protect itself against over 53 monthly Israeli violations of Lebanon’s air, land and sea territories.

It is strikingly obvious that the Israeli demands, and those of the international community, coincide exactly with those of a few Lebanese political leaders, notably the Christian Leader Samir Geagea, the former ally of Israel and the leader of the “Lebanese Forces”, and with those of other politicians allied to Saudi Arabia. If the international community intends to link the financial support of Lebanon to the disarmament of Hezbollah, ……..

Podcast: The Beirut Explosion, Economic Terror and the Drumbeat of War Against Hezbollah

Beirut Blast podcast image

By Mnar Muhawesh Adley

Lebanese journalists Laith Marouf and Marwa Osman recount their experience living through the recent blast that destroyed much of Beirut, an explosion that not only occurred during a period of rapid economic decline but of increasing public outrage over corruption and Western sanctions that have squeezed Lebanon dry.

Welcome to MintCast — an interview series featuring dissenting voices the establishment would rather silence– I’m your host Mnar Muhawesh Adley.

Lebanon is reeling from a blast that destroyed much of the capital Beirut on Tuesday, August 4. 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate in the city’s port is thought to have caught fire and exploded, killing at least 157 people and injuring thousands more. The blast, believed to be one of the largest non-nuclear explosions in history, destroyed much of the city and has left an estimated 300,000 people homeless.

Exploiting this tragedy are the usual suspects within Western media and government including the United States and Israel who are beating the drums of war as they try to blame Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah for the massive explosion.

Joining us today to discuss this and what this means for the region and world are two independent journalists and analysts who lived through the blast, Laith Marouf, and Marwa Osman.

Laith Marouf is a journalist, geopolitical analyst, and activist who has served as Canadian National Chair of the group, Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights. He was the Executive Director of Concordia University Television in Montreal and currently lives in Beirut where he saw first hand the devastation caused by the August 4 explosion.

Marwa Osman is a lecturer at the Lebanese International University and Maaref University. She’s also the host of the MidEaStream broadcasted on Al-Etejah English Channel. Her writing focuses primarily on Middle Eastern issues and can be found in a wide range of outlets, including Press TV.  Like Marouf, Osman is a resident of Beirut.

 

The explosion could barely have come at a worse time for Lebanon, which is suffering through an economic meltdown, with a collapsing currency, rampant inflation, employment difficult to come by, and food becoming increasingly scarce. Worse still, the country’s Economy Minister Raoul Nehme confirmed that grain silos at the port, containing around 15,000 tons of wheat, were destroyed. As a result, the country has barely a few weeks of food in reserve.

Hospitals, already feeling the strain due to the worsening coronavirus outbreak, have been overwhelmed, and have been forced to turn away many arriving for urgently needed medical care. With the city destroyed, roads closed and vehicles upended, most of Beirut’s residents have had little option other than to stay where they are, begin to clean up, even as clouds of toxic fumes engulf the area.

The blast occurred in a context of rapid economic decline, increasing public outrage over corruption — including from Washington — and Western economic sanctions that have squeezed the country dry.

Saker appeal: please help me get a better picture about this! (UPDATED)

August 11, 2020

Dear friends,

As I expected, today Russia has registered the first vaccine against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.  I took a quick look at CNN and BBC, and did not find that reported (maybe they have added it since, I only scanned the headlines).

As most of you know, I don’t follow the legacy corporate ziomedia, but in this case, maybe I could ask all of you to let me know here IF the western media covers the registration of this first vaccine and HOW they cover it.

So here is my request:

If you come across any article discussing the fact that Russia was the first country on the planet to register a vaccines against SARS-CoV-2, please post a link to it in the comments section.  If you want, please include a key excerpt and a personal commentary.

Deal?

I am really interested to see if ANY western media outlets will honestly cover this or not (I think not).

Finally, this is not an English language blog, only a MOSTLY English.  So please feel free to include articles in any language, but please also add a translated summary.

Many thanks and hugs and cheers to all,

The Saker

UPDATE: Wow, just WOW!  What an avalanche of information, thank you all!!!  I have just one request: please do NOT emails me links, but please post them here for all to see. 

Thank you!!  The Saker

Lebanese government resigns: ‘Corruption is stronger than the State’


Date: 10 August 2020

Author: lecridespeuples

Statement by Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab announcing the resignation of his government, August 10, 2020.

This technocratic government formed in January 2020 was the first ever in which Hezbollah’s strongest opponents didn’t hold positions.

Source: http://www.pcm.gov.lb/arabic/subpg.aspx?pageid=18047

Translation: resistancenews.org

Transcript:

We are still in the throes of the tragedy that struck Lebanon. This disaster that struck the Lebanese people to the core occurred as a result of chronic corruption in politics, administration and the State.

I said previously that the system of corruption is rooted in all articulations of the State, but I have found that the system of corruption is bigger than the State, and the State is constrained by this system and can’t face it or get rid of it.

One of the examples of this endemic corruption has exploded in the port of Beirut, and this calamity has struck Lebanon, but such examples of corruption are widespread in the political and administrative geography of the country, and the danger is very great that other hidden woes (still threaten the people), very present in many minds and stored in other warehouses, with the protection of the class which controls the fate of the country and threatens the lives of the people, falsifies the facts and lives off the sedition, trading in the blood of the Lebanese people as soon as the opportunity arises, depending on fluctuating interests, whims, calculations and allegiances.

Today, we are facing a great tragedy, and all the forces concerned with preserving the country and the interests of the people were supposed to cooperate to overcome this ordeal, by imposing on themselves silence for several days, mourning for the souls of the martyrs, respecting the pain of the bereaved, parents, siblings and orphans, striving to help people, heal their wounds, and provide them with housing, and helping those who have lost their livelihood.

The scale of the tragedy is too great to describe, but some live in another era. They are not interested in everything that has happened except to the extent that it can allow them to score political points, launch populist electoral speeches and demolish what remains of the State.

They should have been ashamed of themselves, for their corruption has produced this calamity hidden for seven years, and God knows how many calamities they hide under the cloak of their corruption.

But these people have the habit of changing their position according to the circumstances, to falsify the facts, when what is needed is to change them (get rid of them permanently), because they are the real tragedy of Lebanese people. Yes, they are the real tragedy of the Lebanese people.

They have changed and evolved a lot in the past, (to neutralize) every opportunity to get rid of their corruption.

They did not correctly interpret the Lebanese revolution of October 17, 2019. This revolution was against them, but they did not understand it well. They continued with their practices and calculations, believing they could dilute the Lebanese people’s demands for change, for a just and strong State, for an independent judiciary, to end corruption, waste and theft, and the policies that have emptied the State treasury, squandered the savings of the people and placed the country under enormous debt burdens, causing this financial, economic and social collapse.

But the greatest paradox is that a few weeks (only) after the formation of this government, they tried to make it bear the responsibility for their infamies, and to hold it responsible for the collapse, the waste and the public debt.

Really, they should die of shame.

This government has gone to great lengths to chart a road map to save the country.

Each minister in this government has given his maximum because we are concerned about the country, and we care about its future and that of our children.

We have no personal interests, and all that matters to us is saving the country. Because we have taken on this mission, we have suffered many attacks and false accusations. But we refused to let ourselves be drawn into futile polemics, because we wanted to work. Nevertheless, the enraged trumpets did not stop their attempts to falsify the facts, to protect themselves and cover up their crimes.

We carried the Lebanese demand for change. But between us and change lies a very thick and very thorny wall, protected by a class which resists by all dirty methods, in order to preserve its privileges, its positions and its ability to control the state.

We fought fiercely and with honor, but this battle could not be won. We were alone and they were united against us. They have used all their weapons, distorted the truths, falsified the facts, spread rumors, lied to people, committed all mortal and venial sins. They knew that we were a threat to them, and that the success of this government would mean real change in this class which has always reigned until the country was suffocated by the smells of its corruption.

Today we have come to this, with the earthquake that struck the country, with all its humanitarian, social, economic and national repercussions. Our first concern is to deal with these repercussions, along with a swift investigation that defines responsibility and does not let the disaster be forgotten over time.

Today we appeal to the people, to their demand that those responsible for this hidden disaster for seven years be held to account, to their genuine desire to move from a state of corruption, waste, bribes and thefts to a rule of law, justice and transparency. To a State that respects its children.

Faced with this reality, we are taking a step backwards, in order to stand alongside the people, to lead the battle for change with them. We want to open the door to a national salvation that the Lebanese will help shape.

Therefore, today I am announcing the resignation of this government.

May God protect Lebanon. May God protect Lebanon. May God protect Lebanon.

Long live the Lebanese people. Long live Lebanon.

Hassan Nasrallah: our opponents have demonstrated their moral bankruptcy and lack of lucidity

Echoing extracts from the speech of Hezbollah Secretary General on August 7, 2020.

[…] In general, it is said that dignified peoples, who have a certain level of culture and ethics, a certain sense of responsibility and humanity, a sense of national interest, even when there are struggles and disputes among themselves, when a great national tragedy occurs, or a terrible event occurs, everyone temporarily freezes their struggles and disputes, as well as their personal calculations, to rise above all these (partisan) considerations, and to behave on a nobler ethical and human basis, and everyone helps each other to overcome this tragedy or this catastrophe. Once the crisis is over, things can resume their usual course. Things are like this (in general) all over the world.

Sometimes we have even seen that in the midst of war, when a tragic event such as a massacre occurs, the enemies conclude a truce, a ceasefire, even in the midst of war! It does happen and it is well known (even against Israel), but I will not waste time citing examples. But outside of war, within the same country, where there is a government, an opposition, rival political forces, when a catastrophe affects everyone, all regions, all families. What happened was not a tragedy that only targeted certain categories of the population, no. In general, in such situations (of national disaster), differences are temporarily put aside, and everyone helps and cooperates (even with their political opponents), and adopts more dignified language, with different sentiments, and different statements and political speeches. Likewise, the media behave differently, with humanity and ethics, each granting a respite (to their adversaries), if only for a few days, at least a few days (of truce)! I’m not talking about months or years, no, a few days, (one or) two weeks! To give people time to recover the remains of their martyrs, to heal their wounds, to visit the wounded, to assert the fate of the missing people, to put out the fires, to clear the debris, to find a way to relocate the displaced, etc. After that, we can reopen the accounts (and rekindle the rivalries), no problem.

But unfortunately what happened in Lebanon with this incident is that from the first hours of this tragedy and this cataclysm, and even from the first hour, not the first hours, when no one yet knew what was going on or had happened [our adversaries flooded the media with lies accusing Hezbollah of the explosion]. […] Even before anyone knew the answer to these questions, the Lebanese and Arab media, and certain political forces expressed through their official social networks, and even through some public statements by officials… These are not from obscure people running (Twitter or Facebook) accounts, but statements on television and in the media, made as soon as the explosion was known to the public, and while the fires in the port were not yet extinguished, and the destruction and amazement was the lot of all the Lebanese and the whole world. But these people spoke out in the media and announced their position before they knew anything. Their position was decided in advance: the cause of the explosion in hangar number so-and-so at the port of Beirut was a Hezbollah missile warehouse that exploded and caused this unprecedented terror and cataclysm. Or, they said it was stockpiles of Hezbollah ammunition, explosives, or weapons. The bottom line is that it must have belonged to Hezbollah, whether it was missiles, ammunition, explosives. […] Even before an investigation was launched, before anyone knew what happened, some media, some Lebanese and Arab TV channels, since the incident began and until now —they haven’t changed their tune— asserted that the hangar belonged to Hezbollah, that what exploded was Hezbollah missiles, Hezbollah explosives, Hezbollah nitrate, Hezbollah, Hezbollah, Hezbollah, Hezbollah… We heard nothing else from them, because there is no other (hypothesis) for them. It is a great crime committed against us. And their method has been to lie, lie, lie and lie and lie again, until people believe it. […]

I have seen yesterday and today that the majority of international media and journalists have abandoned the hypothesis (of a stockpile of Hezbollah weapons), except for a few voices in Lebanon and the Arab world. Thus, those who launched (this slander) are now all alone (to support it), because all the media and all the voices in the world are anxious to keep a minimum of credibility, even if they are our enemies engaged in a political war against us; but when it turns out that the accusation is clearly a lie as shiny as the sun at its zenith, they (have enough good sense to) back off and conjure up other possibilities.

Either way, investigations are ongoing, and the truths will emerge quickly, as this is not a question that will take time. I believe that the criminal, security, military and technical investigation will be able to quickly establish (with certainty) what was in the hangar, what was the nature of the explosives and how it was triggered, because at the technical level, this does not require much time, and the truths can be expected to come to light quickly.

When the truths come to light, I hope that the Lebanese public opinion, in all regions of Lebanon, because in our country there is a problem in terms of punishments and responsibilities, and in the name of freedom of opinion and expression, some (media and politicians) accuse, insult, abuse, oppress and lead the country to the brink of civil war, and (despite all this), ultimately, the Criminal Court imposes them a (mere) fine of 10 to 50 million Lebanese pounds (6,000 to 35,000 dollars), and it stops there. What I want to ask the Lebanese people is that they should themselves judge these media (and politicians) and condemn them. In what way? By ceasing to give them the least credit, the least importance, and by ceasing to consult them or to look at them. Because when we know that such media has no credibility, and that it is based on lies, manipulation and falsification, and that it participates in the battle that targets our country (to destroy it), then we must condemn them and turn our backs on them for good. And it is in my opinion the most important punishment (that can befall) these false and falsifying television stations which push to the civil war. This should not be taken lightly! This is not a (simple) political accusation. When somebody comes and tells hundreds of thousands of people that it is Hezbollah who is responsible for this carnage, all these deaths and injuries, all this destruction and all this displacement, what is it (if not pushing the country towards civil war)?

On the other hand, still concerning the political scene, on the other hand we saw the political instrumentalisation of the incident, and all those who had a problem with so and so reopened this problem (in this tragic context), whether it is the Lebanese National Pact, the government or other political forces, and of course those who have a problem with us. Today, I do not want to open an argument with anyone, and we are putting off (the settling of accounts) for later because we remain attached to avoid settling political or personal disputes, out of ethical, humanitarian and national considerations. This is the time for solidarity, compassion, mutual aid, to heal wounds, to clear debris, to determine the fate of the missing, to treat the wounded, to help people return home, which is a vital priority. The country needs this kind of attitude and calm for several days in order to overcome the crisis. Then we can talk politics and settle accounts. Our position will be firm. And as for certain analyzes which compare the current situation with previous experiences (assassination of Hariri in 2005, etc.) or build hopes (on capitalizing on this tragedy for political gains) like so many of their past illusions, (remember that) for a long time, some people (Hezbollah adversaries) chased after mirages, only to realize that they were all mirages, but I will talk about that later. At this point, I don’t want to get into these considerations, and I don’t want to attack anyone. I’ll put it off until later. The priority is compassion, cooperation and mutual aid, to overcome these days of pain, suffering and humanitarian crisis. Let’s put all the differences aside and get back to political (disputes) later.

My last point, which is most important, is investigation and retribution. A huge, terrible and dangerous event has happened. First, there must be an investigation. His Excellency the President of the Republic and the Prime Minister declared from the outset that there will be an impartial, resolute, firm, definitive and strong investigation, and that whoever will be identified as having a responsibility in this incident, by his actions or by negligence, corruption or insufficiency, will be held to account, whoever he is, big or small. Very well. It’s a good start. The Lebanese are now asking for action and effort (in this direction). I consider that faced with the shock of the event, there is national, popular and governmental unanimity, of all political parties and all deputies, etc., demanding that an exhaustive, frank, transparent, precise, fair and impartial investigation be carried out on this event, and that whoever bears any share of responsibility be judged and condemned in the most severe and exemplary manner —a fair punishment, of course (not a lynching). We are also among the voices that demand this loud and clear. We must not allow anyone to be covered or protected during the investigation, and truths to be withheld about anyone. It is not tolerable that the investigation and then the trial should be done in the “Lebanese fashion”, that is to say in this well-known way where one takes into account religious and sectarian calculations and balances. Anyone who was inadequate or negligent, instigated (this event) or engaged in corruption, has no religion or sect, as is the case with collaborators (of the Israeli enemy). They should be judged on the basis of what they have done, not on the basis of their sectarian, religious or political affiliation. Neither the investigation nor the trial should be conducted on a sectarian basis (requiring a precise ratio of Sunnis, Shiites or Christians). Whoever is in charge, whether they belong to several sects or are all from the same sect, whatever their political affiliation and group, whatever their family clan, truth and justice must prevail and determine the position, the investigation and the punishment. […]

In this regard, I would also like to add something very important. Just as the event is exceptional, today the attitude of the Lebanese State towards this event will be in our eyes decisive and fateful. This will determine the future of Lebanon. In what way? Today it is not about the President of the Republic, the National Pact or the government (which can come and go at the whim of elections and crises). It is about (the safeguard of) the Lebanese State, (which will depend) on the way in which the authorities will behave in this regard, be it the judicial body, the army, the security services, and even the Chamber of Deputies. It is about (the sustainability) of the (Lebanese) State and its institutions. Everyone has some responsibility for the trial and the punishment. The way to act in the face of such a catastrophe, which has affected all sects, all neighborhoods and all regions, and must in no way be tinged with sectarianism, religion or politicization, a national and humanitarian tragedy par excellence, the way State institutions will behave about it, as well as political leaders and the various political forces in the country, will have a fateful consequence for the whole country. What will this fateful consequence be? How this tragedy is dealt with will determine in the eyes of the Lebanese people —and in my eyes the verdict will be irrevocable— whether there is a (genuine) State in Lebanon or not. The second question (which will find an irrevocable answer) is about the hope of building a State (in Lebanon). Because I tell you quite frankly: if the Lebanese State and the Lebanese political forces —whether in power or in the opposition—, in such a case and such a cause, do not achieve a result in the investigation, and fail to punish (all those responsible), it means that the Lebanese people, political forces, State institutions (are bankrupt), and that there is no hope to build an (authentic) State. I don’t want anybody to despair, but I accurately describe the reality.

But we must (all) work so that this despair does not happen, in order to confirm, create and sow hope (to see a real State) among the Lebanese. Today, all the calls to fight against corruption that may have denounced a biased judge, a cowardly judge, a force that buried court files for such or such consideration, (are eclipsed by the magnitude of this case). We have to see a heavy punishment, because even if the investigation reveals that it was an intentional act or an aerial bombardment, the fact that this nitrate was stored in this way for 6 or 7 years clearly implies that there was a (criminal) negligence, inadequacy and corruption on the part of judges. This is where the war on corruption must (be a priority)! If in this case all those who call for a war on corruption, and we are part of it, if we are unable to do anything (to identify and punish all the culprits), it means that we are unable to do anything (forever). Game over. We will frankly declare to the Lebanese people that it is impossible to fight corruption, to fight neglect and insufficiency, and we will say, “O Lebanese people, you have no State and there is no hope of building an (authentic) State, so it’s up to you to see what you can do with yourselves”. To me, such is the magnitude of the question. So that people do not say later that it was a tragedy (without culprits) and forget about the matter, we make it clear that as far as we are concerned, it is impossible to forget this disaster, to move on and to allow let it be neglected. The whole truth must be revealed about this tragedy, and those responsible must be tried without any protection, whether political, sectarian or partisan. If that doesn’t happen, yes, I will consider that there is a crisis of the regime, a crisis of the State, maybe even a crisis of the (Lebanese) entity, some will be entitled to go this far. And some people try to ignore it, one way or another.

Therefore, I call on State officials, at all levels and in all authorities, to show the utmost seriousness and determination, whether to complete the investigation or to judge and blame, and chastise all those responsible for this tragedy. This is required so that the leaders and the political forces can give hope to the Lebanese people that there are authorities, a State and institutions, or at least that there is hope that a State be erected on the basis of truth, justice, transparency and the protection of the Lebanese, because sometimes the consequences of corruption, negligence and incompetence accumulate and become apparent after several years, and can be destructive, like what happened in this terrible event where in seconds, in a matter of seconds, tens of people were killed or missing, thousands were injured, hundreds of thousands of families were affected and had to leave their homes… And some people say that God prevented an even greater tragedy, and that if this hangar had not been so close to the sea, and without such and such peculiarities of the site, if this same amount of nitrate had exploded in a different geographic configuration, perhaps the whole city (of Beirut) would have been destroyed. All this in an instant, in a matter of seconds, because of corruption, neglect and incompetence, and no one should say it is simply because of the intricacies of the bureaucracy. Never. We are talking about stocks that could completely destroy the capital and certain suburbs (in an instant). The blame cannot be blamed on the intricacies of bureaucracy. […]

I declare to all those who, from the first moment, launched a campaign against us, against the Resistance and against the Axis of Resistance, trying to take advantage of this tragedy, you will get nowhere, and I tell you that frankly and sincerely. I also declare to the masses (who support) the Resistance, and some of whom are perhaps worried, scared, wonder what is the (underlying) atmosphere, if this is a big regional or international plot , (I reassure them by reminding them) that the regional situation is very different (from what it was before), as is the international situation (much more favorable to us than ever). We are very different from what we were, and so is the (Axis of) the Resistance (we are stronger than ever), so there is really nothing to worry about (for us). These people (our adversaries) run after mirages, as they have always run after mirages. All of their choices have always been doomed to failure and defeat.

And I say this to our adversaries: just as you have been disappointed and defeated (in all your past undertakings: Special Tribunal for Lebanon, 2006 war, war in Syria, etc.), you will once again be disappointed and defeated. You will not achieve anything. This Resistance, by its credibility, its sincerity, by the confidence of the Lebanese people in it, by its (victorious) battles, by its positions, by its attitude and its behavior, and by its strength, its place in the country and in the region, is too large, too strong and too noble for it to be tainted by (the slanders) of certain oppressors, liars and falsifiers of the truth, who (constantly) incite sectarian rivalry, and who encourage civil war. They have always worked at this and have always failed, and they will fail again. […]

Sayyed Nasrallah: Hezbollah Has Nothing to Do with Beirut Port, The Resistance is Greater than Being Attacked by Liars

Sayyed Nasrallah: Hezbollah Has Nothing to Do with Beirut Port, The Resistance is Greater than Being Attacked by Liars

By Zeinab Essa

Beirut – Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered on Friday a speech in which he tackled Beirut Port tragedy resembled by the blast that targeted the Lebanese capital port on August 4. 

Considering that “What happened in Beirut is a huge humanitarian and national catastrophe by all standards,” Sayyed Nasrallah expressed sympathy and offered condolences to all the families of the martyrs, the injured, the lost and the displaced ones.

He further asked Al-Mighty God a speedy recovery for all the injured and patience to all people affected in this catastrophe. 

“This blast was cross-confessional as there are martyrs from all sects,” His Eminence added, pointing out that “The repercussions of the catastrophe are very serious and have major social, health and economic impacts.”

As the Resistance Leader stressed that “This tragedy needs exceptional approach at all levels,” he further praised “the popular solidarity among the Lebanese people.”

“In this tragedy, the popular scene has appeared to stand by each other, as the civil agencies and institutions were present on the ground from the first hour,” His Eminence said.

Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah declared that “Hezbollah, with all its institutions, individuals, and capabilities is at the disposal of the Lebanese state and our people.”

Denouncing the fact that “The entire country was besieged by the Americans and not only a single party”, he declared that “Hezbollah is ready to help every family that has lost its home and needs temporary alternative housing.”

“At the international level, we witnessed great sympathy. We thank all the countries that sent aid,” Hezbollah Secretary General underscored, mentioning that “The most prominent international scene was the visit of the French President to Lebanon, and we look positively to every visit and aid.”

In addition, Sayyed Nasrallah hoped that “The international scene opens an opportunity for Lebanon to emerge from the siege and hardship that Lebanon is passing through. The international dealing with the incident is an opportunity and it should not be missed. We must look for the opportunities that the blast has generated.”

On the internal political level, Sayyed Nasrallah affirmed that “In front of such catastrophe, the parties in any country would suspend their disputes. Unfortunately, in Lebanon, since the first hour of the tragedy, some local and Arab media and some political forces came out and fabricated that the amber is a Hezbollah ammunition storehouse.” 
“Those who insisted that there was a Hezbollah arms depot sought to tell the Lebanese people that Hezbollah is to blame and this is a false accusation,” he added, stating: “We do neither manage the port, nor do we interfere in it, and we do not know what is inside it.”
As His Eminence clarified that Hezbollah and its people were affected by the tragedy as some of its people and supporters were martyred and injured, Sayyed Nasrallah “categorically and firmly denied that there is nothing for Hezbollah in the port, neither a weapon store, nor a gun, nor nitrates; not in the past and not now.”

Slamming the fact that “Lebanon has witnessed a great political exploitation of the incident,” Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated that “Any claims that Hezbollah runs the Beirut Port are lies.”

“The investigations are underway and the facts will emerge quickly because the matter is not complicated,” His Eminence added, noting that “Hezbollah might have knowledge of what exists at Haifa’s port, but not at Beirut’s port, because this is not our responsibility.”

Moreover, His Eminence said: “I don’t want to engage in any debates with anyone. This is a moment for solidarity and cooperation.”

Sayyed Nasrallah also urged fair punishment on anyone who the investigation shows involved in the incident, away from any accounts or affiliations. “It should not be allowed during the investigation to protect anyone or hide the facts.” 

In parallel, His Eminence called on the “Lebanese people to hold accountable the media channels that instigated and sought to push the country into the edge of civil war.”

“All security agencies can take part in a joint investigation. The Lebanese Army, which everyone says they trust, can carry out the investigation,” he added, underscoring that “The most important point is investigation and accountability.”

Sayyed Nasrallah went on to say: “If the Lebanese state, with all its authorities, has not been to reach a conclusion in the investigation and trial, then there is no hope of building a state. I’m one of those who believe that the approach towards this incident would decide whether or not there is hope in building a state in Lebanon.”

To all those who opened a battle with Hezbollah and the axis of resistance, on the basis of the blast incident, Sayyed Nasrallah sent a clear message: “You will reach nowhere.”

“This resistance, with its credibility and the confidence of the Lebanese people in it, in its performance, strength, as well as its national and regional position, is greater than being attacked by some oppressors, liars, and civil war-seekers,” he assured, pointing out that: “From the womb of the tragedy, chances could be born, and the international approach towards the recent incident is a chance that must be seized by the Lebanese state and people. We can get out of this crisis stronger and more determined to win.”

Sayyed Nasrallah Denies Fabrications about Missile Cashes in Beirut Port: Hezbollah Concentrates on Haifa Port

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah on Friday offered deep condolences to the families of the martyrs claimed in Beirut Port’s blast, hoping a speedy recovery for the wounded.

“We are in face of a major humanitarian and national catastrophe according to all the standards,” his eminence said in a televised speech.

“There are more than 150 martyrs; the majority of them are Lebanese, with a remarkable number of Syrians and national from of different countries.” “There are thousands of wounded, and dozens are missing. Tens of thousands of families  left their homes damaged by the explosion.” “Livelihoods of thousands were affected, and a panic that stormed the hearts of millions. “Buildings shook in a way that made people believe that it was a major earthquake or that there was an explosion close to them.”

Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted the major negative effects of Beirut blast on the humanitarian, medical and economic situation in the country.

“Beirut blast has been completely obliterated. This would cause major economic losses.”

“This explosion affected all the Lebanese with all their sectarian affiliations.”

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that all the Lebanese must face such catastrophes in an exceptional way psychologically, politically and in media, adding, “We must express sympathy, love and solidarity with each other.”

In this regard, Hezbollah Secretary General underscored the speedy intervention of the civil committees in helping the state authorities, adding that the role of the medics, rescue teams, municipalities, religious boards and individuals was vital in face of the consequences of the calamity (removing debris, cleaning streets, etc.).

Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized that Hezbollah followers, institutions, and committees rushed after the explosion to provide relief aids to the affected people, reiterating the party’s readiness to assist the government authorities in face of the catastrophe and provide temporary shelters for those whose houses were damaged or destroyed.

Sayyed Nasrallah hailed the stances taken and relief aids sent by the Arab and foreign governments as well as resistance movements to support Lebanon despite the siege imposed by the United States, pointing out that Hezbollah views the visit of the French President positively as it come in the context of helping and uniting the Lebanese.

“We wish US imposed its siege just on Hezbollah, not on all the Lebanese.”

Sayyed Nasrallah added that when catastrophes occur, everyone halts disputes and conflicts in order to preserve unity in face of the challenge, but that after Beirut explosion, this unfortunately did not happen.

“Just after the explosion, some local and Arab TV channels as well as social media pages adopted an alleged scenario which claims that Beirut port’s warehouse which exploded contained missiles or ammunition for Hezbollah. Although official sources denied the presence of missiles in the port and confirmed that of nitrate used for agricultural and industrial purposes, they (local and Arab TV channels) insisted that the ammonium nitrate had been stored by Hezbollah for 6 years in order to blame the party for the explosion.”

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that this claim is an unjust defamation, adding that they follow the propaganda law: “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth.”

“I categorically deny the claim that Hezbollah has stores of missiles, ammunition or anything else.”

“Although the US administration and the Western media stopped promoting this unfair claim, some Lebanese and Arab TV channels continued circulating it.”

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that Hezbollah neither runs Beirut port nor does it interfere in its administration, adding that the Resistance knows about Haifa Port in Occupied Palestine more than Beirut Port.

Sayyed Nasrallah said that the investigations are ongoing and can reveal the truth about the explosion and the stored substances within a short time, calling on all the Lebanese to boycott the media outlets involved in falsifying the truth.

Sayyed Nasrallah said he would not engage in political quarrels with the parties attempting to utilize the explosion, stressing that it is the time of sympathy and solidarity.

Hezbollah leader underlined the importance of holding just and serious investigations that can reveal the truth as called for by the President and the Prime Minister in order to try and inflict the fair punishments on all the culprits regardless of their religious and political affiliations.

Truth and justice must prevail, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who proposed tasking the Lebanese Army to hold the investigations and identify the culprits “as all the political parties trust it”.

Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized that the investigations must be up to the exceptional catastrophe and culprits must be tried and punished regardless of their affiliations, adding that this would be a main test which indicates whether the Lebanese parties can establish the state or not.

“If the competent authorities fail to reach justice in the case of Beirut blast, it would never be possible to establish and maintain the state in Lebanon.”

The way how the foreign countries is dealing with the consequences of the explosion opens new chances that must be seized by the Lebanese, Sayyed Nasrallah said.

Addressing those who have engaged in a battle against Hezbollah on the basis of Beirut explosion, Sayyed Nasrallah said, “You will not reach any result.”

Sayyed Nasrallah also reassured the Resistance supporters, saying: “The international and regional situation has changed. Hezbollah is too strong to be overcome by some unjust liars who commit forgery and push to the civil war.”

Hezbollah Secretary General said, in the beginning of the speech, that he delayed his speech scheduled to be last Wednesday due to the catastrophic blast, clarifying that the speech was specialized to identify Hezbollah attitude towards the developments on the border with the occupied Palestine and to dwell on other important issues in Lebanon and the region.

Lebanon has been in mourning as Beirut was ravaged by the two massive blasts which rocked its port, killing at least 150 people and injuring more than 5,000 others. Dozens have been also still missing.

حروب الشيطنة… وقوة المقاومة بالتنوّع واللامركزيّة

ناصر قنديل

مشاريع الشيطنة التي تستهدف المقاومة منذ سنوات هي حروب معلنة على لسان أصحابها، وتنفق في تزخيمها موازنات طائلة من مخصصات الجيش الأميركي ومشاريع الكونغرس للسياسة الخارجية إلى موازنات أجهزة مخابرات كيان الاحتلال وصناديق أموال النفط الخليجي المكرسة للترويج للسياسات، والتي صارت مكرّسة كلها لشيطنة المقاومة، بحيث يزيد ما يتم إنفاقه عبر جمعيات مجتمع مدني وتنظيمات ناشطين وكتّاب ورموز ودورات تدريب وموازنات مواقع إلكترونية وذباب إلكتروني وقنوات فضائية ومساعدات لقنوات وصحف كلياً وجزئياً، عن مئات ملايين الدولارات سنوياً، وتتنوع عناوين الشيطنة من إطلاق الشائعات إلى التحريض على الفتن المذهبية إلى اتهام المقاومة بكل ما يسيء لسمعتها، وصولاً لمحاولة تحقيق أوسع عملية غسل أدمغة تنتهي بعزل المقاومة عن بيئات مساندة، وتصل لتفكيك البيئة الحاضنة.

يؤخذ على المقاومة عدم اتباع خطة منظمة تحشد طاقات عقولها وعقول مؤيديها وتنتظم في جبهة إعلاميّة تملك روزنامة موحّدة، وتطلق شعارات ومشاريع عمل على أفكار، تتصدّى للشعارات ومشاريع العمل التي يطلقها خصوم المقاومة، بينما يشكل هذا النهج امتداداً لمفهوم الإعلام الاشتراكي الواقعي الذي ساد في مرحلة الاتحاد السوفياتي، ويعتمده اليوم خصوم المقاومة، وهم يتحدثون عن الحداثة، ويعود سبب اعتماد هذا النهج من قبل خصوم المقاومة إلى كون المنخرطين في خطتهم اقرب إلى الموظفين من أصحاب القضايا، وأقرب للأفراد من الجماعات، فالأفكار التي يحملونها رغم صخبها في وسائل الإعلام ووسائل التواصل الاجتماعي، تبقى في قشرة الوعي أقرب للنمّية في الصالونات، فلا تمثل رأياً سائداً في عمق وجدان شريحة صلبة في أي من المجتمعات المعنية بحروب المقاومة، يجعل هذا الرأي القضية الأولى التي تحرك جمهور هذا الشريحة وتصيغ موقعه السياسي، فقد يبلغ سقف نجاحها بأن يستسيغها جمهور ما لكنه لا يعتبرها أفكاره الوجوديّة التي يقاتل لأجلها، بينما تقع قضية المقاومة في هذه المنزلة المقرّرة والوجودية في الشرائح المقابلة.

بالحصيلة لا زالت الحرب على العقول مستمرّة رغم مرور عقدين على الأقل على انطلاقتها، أي منذ نجاح المقاومة بتحرير جنوب لبنان عام 2000، واستمرار الحرب يعني عدم تحقيقها أهدافها، ولو أمكن لأصحابها وخصومها التحدث عن نجاحات جزئيّة، إلا أن السمة الأبرز لهذه الحرب لا تزال هي الإخفاق، فقد نجحت المقاومة خلال هذين العقدين بالاحتماء وسط منظومة إعلامية شبكية متحركة، فهي أقوى كمشروع مستقبلي في صفوف شعوب فلسطين والعراق واليمن وسورية من قبل عقدين وكفكرة وسط الجمهور العريض، ولم تتراجع قوتها كفكرة في صفوف الآخرين في ساحات متعدّدة رغم المد والجزر بفعل النزاعات وتقدّم هموم الساحات وخصوصياتها، وتجذر المذهبية وتداعياتها، ورغم ما لحق بوسائل إعلام المقاومة من تضييق وعزل وعقوبات، وكان مصدر القوة في هذه المنظومة هو الخصوصيّة التي تحكم كلاً من عناصرها، ودرجة الحرية التي تحكم أداء مكوّناتها، وتحويل التمايز من نقيصة إلى فضيلة، والتخلّي عن السعي لمركزية مواجهة حرب الشيطنة، على قاعدة اعتبار اللامركزية إقراراً وقبولاً، بتحالف عريض مرن وفضفاض تحمل كل من قواه وأدواته، خصوصيتها وانتقاداتها وطلباتها، وتصغي المقاومة لها جميعها بثقة وأخوة وقدرة تحمل وصبر وملاقاة حيث يمكن، لأن المقاومة تماهت مع قناعاتها برفض مصادرة الآخرين، تحت إبطها.

تحيط بالمقاومة وسائل إعلام متنوّعة ورموز تأثير إعلامي ومعنوي متعدّدة، تبدأ من تلك التي تخاطب بيئتها المباشرة، وتشدّ عصبها وتبث الأمان في أوساطها، وتزيد منسوب ثقتها بقيادتها، وتتسع حولها لدائرة إعلام ورموز وشخصيات حلفائها المحليين والإقليميين الذين يملك كل منهم إعلامه وهويته وشخصيته وخطابه، من مروحة خطاب مسيحي يراها سنداً وجودياً في زمن التطرف، إلى خطاب حليف في بيئتها الطائفية يرى في وحدة هذه البيئة صمام أمان وبوليصة تأمين، إلى خطابات وبيئات علمانية تنظر إليها كتعبير أصيل عن حركة الشعب وتوق أحرارها، ويتشكل من حول المقاومة حضور مؤسسات إعلامية تلفزيونية وصحافية وازنة في بيئات اليسار ودعاة التغيير تخالف المقاومة في الكثير من السياسات والمحطات وتخالف بعضها بعضاً، لكنها تلتقي على عدم الاستعداد في المفاصل الحاسمة للتفريط بالمقاومة، كما يحيط بالمقاومة حضور إعلامي وسياسي قومي عربي ناصري وبعثي وإلى جانبه حضور إسلامي قريب من مناخات الأخوان المسلمين أحياناً ومن مناخات الأزهر أحياناً أخرى، يحمل الكثير من خصوصياته وتمايزاته عن بعضه وعن المقاومة وخطابها أحياناً كثيرة، لكنه حاسم في التمسّك بها كأنبل ظاهرة عربية وإسلامية معاصرة.

قوة المقاومة في مواجهة هذه الحرب الإعلامية الهادفة لشيطنتها، انها لا تواجه بجيش منظم ولا تضع خطة مركزية، فيصعب تشخيص مراكز قوتها ونقاط ضعفها، وربما يقع خصومها ببذل جهودهم على أجنحة من قوة حربها بصفتهم مشاريع قابلة للاستقطاب بسبب ظاهر الخلاف، ليكتشفوا بعد طول رهان عقم سعيهم، لكل هذا وللأصالة في قبول التنوّع، تتقبل المقاومة كل الأعراض المصاحبة لهذه اللامركزية، بما في ذلك تصرف المشاركين في حرب حماية الخيار الذي تمثله المقاومة، بصفته خيارهم هم، وتحميل المقاومة وقياداتها مسؤولية التهاون في حمايته، فتصيبها الرصاصات الصديقة، وهي تبتسم لأنها ترى الارتباك سيد الموقف في معسكر الخصوم والأعداء.

Iran reveals for the first time its losses from Israeli attacks in Syria

Source

By News Desk -2020-07-16

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – On Thursday, the Iranian military revealed the number of Iranian killed by Israeli strikes in Syria.

Citing Major General Abu al-Fadl Shukarji, a spokesman for the Iranian Army, the Tasnim News Agency said that Israel’s raids on Syria nine years ago killed nine Iranians, and that the talk of the Israeli and Western media about hundreds or thousands killed is a lie.

Maj. Gen. Shukarji said that what the Israeli and American sides are saying about this number comes in the context of psychological and media war against Iran, and to pretend that Iran is still present in Syria .

The general stressed that “the Iranian presence in Syria is legal, and it came at the request of the Syrian government and people, with the aim of helping them confront American and Israeli terrorism as well as to deal with ISIS terrorism.”

For years, opposition media have claimed several Iranians have been killed in Syria, despite providing little proof to corroborate their claims.

In addition to falsified death tolls, the total number of Iranians present in Syria have been greatly hyperbolized, with some anti-Iranian government sites claiming “90,000” Iranians in Syria.

Iran maintains that their presence in Syria is legal, as their advisers were invited to the Arab Republic by the government in Damascus.

AngloZionist controlled media bans SouthFront

The Saker

AngloZionist controlled media bans SouthFront

Dear friends,

Here is the email I got in my inbox today:
——-

Dear friend,

Once again, SouthFront faced an unprecedented censorship.

On April 30, our Facebook page with about 100,000 subscribers was deleted without any notifications or an option to appeal the decision:

On May 1, YouTube terminated SouthFront’s channels with approximately 170,000 subscribers. The main YouTube channel in English had over 152,000 subscribers, 1,900 uploaded videos and about 60,000,000 views.

This happened despite the fact that our YouTube channels had zero active strikes. We cover conflicts in the Middle East. This is a sensitive topic. Therefore, we strictly follow YouTube’s Community Guidelines and comply with the Terms of Service. There was no so-called “coronavirus conspiracy” content on our YouTube channels.

SouthFront’s YouTube channels were terminated without any warning. All that we got was a single automated email regarding the termination ofour inactive channel in Farsi “SouthFront Farsi” that included several translations of our war reports. However, even this email provides no details regarding the decision and just claims that “SouthFront Farsi” violated YouTube’s Terms of Service without any elaboration.

For over 5 years of our work, SouthFront repeatedly faced attempts to censor our coverage, analysis and videos. However, the current blatant and illegal ban of our activity is an unprecedented case.

The explanation may be that US authorities ordered YouTube and Facebook to cleanse the media sphere of sources of objective coverage and analysis on the Middle East region as a part of the ongoing preparations for a war with Iran.

We think that the current situation deserves attention of the international public, including the journalistic community beyond individual ambitions of separate media organizations and journalists.

We ask you to cover this situation and, if you have an opportunity, to provide us with informational or juridical help.

Sincerely yours,
SouthFront: Analysis & Intelligence

——-

What can I say?

First, the fact that the AngloZionist controlled media wants to silence SouthFront is a sign of how effective SouthFront’s work has been.  They can wear that as a badge of honor.

Second, I don’t believe that there is anything that should/could be done.  The First Amendment only applies to situation in which the state silences somebody, not when corporations do it.

Third, I strongly believe that we all (those in overt resistance to the Empire) should never become dependent on the good-will or decency of AngloZionist controlled media/hosting outlets.  Expect no decency or mercy from these people, they are servants of Satan, quite literally!

Please try to help SouthFront either financially or by lending them a helping hand.  These are good people, doing an important job and, unlike so many others, they have always repaid us with their faithful support and friendship.

By helping SouthFront you help all of us, including the entire Saker Community!

Please do the right thing.

Kind regards

The Saker
