‘THE UNITED STATES OF ISRAEL’ ~ Kurt Nimmo on “Israel & Trump’s Executive Order Killing Free Speech”

It’s official. If you find the dispossession, murder, torture, and slow-motion ethnic cleansing of Palestinians disgusting and criminal, you’re an antisemite. If you organize like-minded folks and urge others to boycott Israeli products, you may end up in prison. It’s OK to criticize official enemies — Iran, Syria, Venezuela, North Korea, Russia, China — for imaginary crimes such as chemical weapons attacks in Syria and Russia’s meddling in elections rigged and prearranged by a hidden elite, but you are flirting with serious danger when you talk truth about Israel. Trump worked around this scheme of prearranged elections and this has resulted in mass mental illness now known as the “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

In America, the state and its media have done an effective job of disappearing wars and downplaying or straight out ignoring the Pentagon’s heavy record of lies and evasion.

Ever since its “war of independence” (ethnic cleansing and mass murder in Palestine that made refugees of thousands of Palestinians), Israel has gone to war with its neighbors.

Today, though barely two percent of the nation’s population is Jewish, close to half its billionaires are Jews. The role and influence of Jews in Ameri­can politics is equally marked.

Beyond a small number of principled leftists and libertarians, there is virtually no opposition to Americans fighting and dying in Israel’s wars.

But that silence is hardly enough. Now the state is looking to prosecute “antisemites,” aka critics of Israel and a hijacked US foreign policy.

Dare mention any of this and you will be designated an antisemite. It is impermissible and will soon be illegal to criticize Israel. It is “hatred of Jews” to oppose the billions of dollars doled out to the Israeli state year after year without the consent of the American people.

It is disturbing to witness the almost complete lack of interest on the part of the American people to put an end to America’s involvement in Israel’s wars, fought and paid for by clueless US citizens.

Last year Israel passed what can only be regarded as a national race law that designates all non-Jews as second class citizens.

“From now on, two types of blood exist in Israel: Jewish blood and non-Jewish blood, on the law books as well,” writes Gideon Levy for Haaretz. (Hitler’s racism was also based on blood.)

Although I disagree completely with their proposed solutions to political and social problems, I agree with “The Squad” on Israel and its violent ethnic cleansing, assassination of activists, murder of children, and arrogant demand an economically besieged American public not only pay for it all but keep their mouths shut if they disagree, lest they find themselves in prison, forever marked as an antisemitic, a media exaggerated version of Hitler and the Nazis.

‘PEARLS BEFORE SWINE’ ~ Caitlin Johnstone on “America’s Two-Headed One-Party System”

“There’s a scene from John Steinbeck’s ‘The Pearl’ that’s been coming back to me over and over again ever since I started writing about US politics. ‘The Pearl’ is a short novel about a poor fisherman, Kino, who discovers the titular enormous gem in an oyster and goes to sell it to the pearl buyers in town. What he doesn’t know is that the buyers, while they have multiple offices and pretend to compete with each other, all actually work for the same owner. This is exactly how the two-headed one-party system works, in America and elsewhere. One party owned by one imperialist oligarchic class is placed in two separate offices ‘to give some semblance of competition,’ just like Steinbeck’s pearl buyers. And just like Steinbeck’s pearl buyers they work together to deceive the people into accepting the lowest possible bid, in their case meaning the acceptance of virtually no change at all from the imperialist oligarchic status quo. You see this kleptocratic dynamic at play regardless of who is in office. This pattern repeats over and over and over again, whether it’s the presidency or Congress, and the people never learn their lesson. They’re trained to think of the two parties as competing, when really they’re more like the left fist and the right fist on the same boxer. An orthodox-stance boxer uses the left jab and the right cross in conjunction with each other in one-two punch combinations to accomplish the same goal, namely to leave his opponent staring up at the arena lights and rethinking his life decisions. And in this case, the boxer’s opponent is you. This is the kind of clear seeing we all need to have. We need to not fall into the drama of the two-handed puppet show and mistake what we are seeing for two separate and competing entities. We need to see and be aware of the puppeteer at all times. Look past the ‘semblance of competition’ and watch what the pearl buyers are actually doing. Ignore their words. Ignore their fake pro-wrestling kayfabe combat over impeachment agendas they know will never bear fruit and their Russia conspiracies they know are pure nonsense. Watch their actual behaviors instead. Don’t fall for the illusion. Don’t get sucked into the drama of the two-handed puppet show. Don’t be deceived, Kino. Don’t sell your pearl.”

PROGRESSIVE POLITICS ~ John W. Whitehead: “Impeach the Government”

“By all means, let’s talk about impeachment. To be clear: this is not about Donald Trump. This is a condemnation of every government toady at every point along the political spectrum — right, left and center — who has conspired to expand the federal government’s powers at the expense of the citizenry. Don’t keep falling for the Deep State’s ploys. This entire impeachment process is a manufactured political circus — a shell game — aimed at distracting the public from the devious treachery of the American police state, which continues to lock down the nation and strip the citizenry of every last vestige of constitutional safeguards that have historically served as a bulwark against tyranny. Has President Trump overstepped his authority and abused his powers? Without a doubt. Then again, so did Presidents Obama, Bush, Clinton, and almost every president before them. This abuse of power has been going on for so long that it has become the norm, the Constitution be damned. Unless something changes in the way we deal with these ongoing, egregious abuses of power, the predators of the police state will continue to wreak havoc on our freedoms, our communities, and our lives. If we continue down this road, there can be no surprise about what awaits us at the end. So yes, let’s talk about impeachment, but don’t fall for the partisan shell game that sets Trump up as the fall guy for the Deep State’s high crimes and misdemeanors. Set your sights higher: impeach the government for overstepping its authority, abusing its power, and disregarding the rule of law.”
