neoliberal nationalist‘ is my new name for the American empire faction that can hardly be distinguished from their sometimes neoconservative adversaries. This is on account of the ‘neoliberal nationalists’ insatiable lust for control over every detail of the American people & nation/state, right down to who can express what perceptions, particularly when someone might have made salient points exposing ‘neoliberal nationalist’ lies. Example given, Twitter shutting down any links to the Hunter Biden laptop story by The New York Post. Can’t have a truthful counter-narrative of Ukraine corruption, Joe Biden and Burisma in circulation, now, can we? At least not from the ‘neoliberal nationalist’ point of view.

Following on the previous post, pointing to divisive rhetoric, the ‘neoliberal nationalist’ aligned intelligence apparatus continues piling on with further propaganda seeding division and violence. These following quotes are from a single so-called ‘analysis’ at a ‘professional intelligence’ blog:

“WITH DOWNTOWN WASHINGTON RESEMBLING a large military encampment, a repeat of last week’s shocking assault on the Capitol Complex is highly improbable. But America could witness escalating levels of violence across many states, as supporters of the January 6 insurrection continue to organize themselves into a coherent armed movement…”

“Supporters of the nationalist insurrection that shook the nation on January 6…”

“The militants who will descend on Washington in the coming days are unlikely to engage in all-out hostilities against as many as 20,000 members of the US National Guard…”

“…the insurrectionists will engage the forces of the government asymmetrically -that is, by resorting to strategies and tactics of unconventional warfare…”

“…in these rural red states the insurgents will be more likely to be met with sympathy from some members of law enforcement”

“…these militants are increasingly reaching out to each other, convinced that their leader was unjustly removed from power in a fraudulent election. The possibility that these militants will begin to engage in an armed insurgency in the service of an organized, nationwide insurrection, is very real…” [1]

Recalling there was a single death by gunfire in the initial Capitol “insurrection”, and that weapon was fired by Federal security, notice in a context of armed “insurgents” & “militants” organizing “insurrection” Trump has just been named “their leader” as though he accepts and is fully complicit in extreme armed nationalist “insurgency” in a sense of hands on directing an armed insurrection. Never-mind Trump, although blinded by narcissism leading to poor judgement, is likely not nearly so bigoted and ignorant as proposed in the ‘neoliberal nationalist’ rhetoric.

In fact, rightly or wrongly, given indisputable history and facts suppressed in corporate media, reasonable people could suspect the election had been ‘stolen.'[2]

The excerpted quotes are, at best, simply ignorant & highly irresponsible or, at worst, resemble classic psyops integrated to propaganda.

To the title of this article is why: a lynch mob mentality is a highly defective intelligence that points (a metaphor) to the brain’s (or the collective brain) having been stimulated to archaic & primitive feedback loop or a negative ‘meme’ reinforcing an aggravated panic. This is easily achieved across a wider spectrum with the stimulus of modern media. This defective mentality is not science fiction, little different to Mary Shelley’s monster cannot be construed ‘science fiction’ in context of the many consequent caricatures or portraits of horror it had inspired.

Just now, it is the ‘neoliberal nationalist’ exercising a much more intense manifestation of this mob mentality than Trump ever had. The impeachment ‘lynch mob’ at the Capitol is a microcosm of what is being ‘seeded’ in the greater populace with potential for immense negative consequence needing only a trigger on a wide scale, whether by Trump’s partisans or, in easily flipped circumstance, the anarchist antifa.

In fact (noticing the Department of Defense has been engaged quite closely in unfolding events) it would only take an organization like the Defense Intelligence Agency to determine, and the Pentagon to act on, the plausible possibility Dominion voting machines had fraudulently turned key states and the electoral college into a Biden ‘victory’, for the 20,000 National Guard ‘securing’ the inauguration find themselves enforcing a Trump swearing in as President. That’s how razor thin we could be away from the ‘neoliberal nationalist’ side’s insurrection and the insurgency of antifa. It is here we should all give attention to a recently ‘politically corrected’ historical artifact, that is General Robert E Lee.

If Lee alone (by might of his military genius) sustained the 1860s Southern military endeavor at least 2 years beyond it’s otherwise expected lifespan, it was also Lee, after his surrender at Appomattox, was the man of stature in a Southern collective mentality that prevented the feared decades of ‘post-war’ Southern partisan insurgency by both his words and example. Today’s neoliberal politicians (and their minions) should take the example set by General Lee employing principle of conciliation, rather than behave like a lynch mob going after Trump.

America would appear to have learned nothing from those short antebellum years of political history where conciliation was discarded prior to an armed convulsion commencing in April, 1861.

But, all of the preceding ignores the nation having transformed from ‘rule of law’ to ‘color of law’ since the National Security Act of 1947. In fact, in today’s United States, ‘saving the constitution’ (whether asserted by either side) is little more than political sloganeering; where (for decades) constitutional principles cannot be squared with ‘national security’ laws as made and applied in fact; and consequently,  the ‘oath to uphold’ the Constitution is patently meaningless, no matter who does the swearing.

Where there clearly can be no legitimate President of the United States in a state of division not seen since the election of 1860, this reporter is ready to move on to other subjects, away from American politics, rather than take sides in what amounts to a preliminary stage of civil war.

The ceremonial investment of Biden as President of the United States is little more than theater along the lines history’s crowning a new ‘Holy Roman Emperor.’ After this ‘investment’ show, any honest president’s “State of the Union” address should cover important points underlying the current state of the USA’s social psychology. The USA most certainly will NOT be provided this honest assessment but simply more & growing transparent political lies underpinning greed that ‘secures’ empire.

What certainly will be missing is, the fact that since the National Security Act of 1947, ‘rule of law’ in these ‘United States’ has been transformed into ‘color of law’ where constitutional principles can no longer be squared with the laws as made and applied in fact. The oath to uphold the constitution has become a caricature that is patently meaningless.

Conservative America more largely, and America’s liberal dissidents in lesser numbers, sense this judicial perversion and it is the conservatives are the historic keepers of those constitutional principles most departed from in this ‘new age of national security.’

The USA is in a state of the nation’s anti-federalist heritage, primarily, having been usurped. It was supposed to be both, a constitutional balance of the federalist & anti-federalist philosophies, or that is to say a central government with solid checks, not one or the other in the extreme that is tyranny or anarchy with leadership gone off the rails.

It follows, in a case where the people have been so pervasively lied to, for so long, there are now two entirely separate & artificial realities, with either side incapable of grasping neutral facts beyond the borders of their own cultural myths. That’s the fruit of irresponsible ‘free speech’ in a corporate monopolized modern mainstream media where political lies possess so-called ‘constitutional’ protections. For this fact, neither side, conservative or liberal, can correctly read those foundational principles that should have, if only they had been adhered to, prevented the “security state’s” overreach, which is a complaint of the one side on one day and the complaint of the other side on another day, depending solely upon who is in the cross-hairs of proposed and/or enacted legislation.

Mutually exclusive historical revisionism accounts finding their way into the social fabric are part and parcel of these isolated (divorced from reality) cultural myths in the two alienated camps of the present body politic. For instance the Evangelical wing of the Republicans have rewritten the First Amendment’s history concerning separation of church & state to favor the Christian church particularly; while the Democrats have consistently misrepresented (done away with) the Second Amendment’s original purpose as a ‘check of last resort’ on state tyranny.

The 1st of the preceding threatens devolution into a large segment of an armed populace propping up what amounts to anarchy-like or mob rule led by ‘Christian ayatollahs’, whereas the 2nd of the preceding threatens a disarmed populace with whatever a corporate (1%) tyranny’s whims demand in any given moment.

The current ‘divide & conquer’ tensions play out in unbridgeable social dynamic where the red states’ conservatives are being driven to a deeply superstitious conservatism of a distant past due to a real subliminal fear of a ‘liberal’ cultural revolution being imposed upon them; while the blue states’ liberals are becoming radicalized into intolerant ‘woke’ because they perceive a revanchist conservatism threat imposing what they consider are archaic social values on themselves in turn.

The George Bush mantra “You are with us or against us” is now employed in domestic politics, whether called forth in the attitudes of Pelosi and Shumer or their allies represented in the “Never Trump!” Republicans, this is recently a threat aimed indiscriminately at a large section of the American public. Claiming Trump is the leader of the USA white supremacist movement is like claiming Biden is the leader of LA’s MS-13 gang. Trump is a perfectly imperfect hope or expression of 1/2 of an electorate desperate to escape ‘business as usual’ in DC opposed to Biden and Biden’s “Never Trump!” Republican support or the corporate establishment’s determination to never cede power back to the people.

“You are with us or against us” is no longer a threat thrown solely at the “homeland’s” foreign ‘provinces of empire’ in circumstance where domestically the Republican Party is broken and the Democratic Party is terminally ill with the disease of corruption. These times find the levers of power have been invested in what amounts to a coterie of reactionary, radically ignorant leaders (includes the moron Trump surrounded by ‘prosperity gospel’ corporate minions who could not altogether control him, not only the radical ignorance of Pelosi, Schumer, Biden & Harris.)

With little or no middle ground left, and middle ground is the only way forward that would see the state’s institutions secure over the long run, is there an avenue available to the alienated parties to sit down and talk?

In the present circumstance, the plain answer is “NO.”

Culminating in the treasonous SCOTUS decision “Citizens United” any pretense the people’s representatives actually answer to the people at the ballot box is dead. Politicians answer to corporate wealth that is the billions pumped into buying elections (especially military-industrial related corporate billions) and any (practically all) political career(s) become dependent on this corporate wealth and are incapable of responsibly responding to or serving the will of a now fatally divided electorate.

With the American Congress having morphed into a 21st Century science fiction monster’s corporate exoskeleton, similar to JRR Tolkien’s giant, malevolent spider Shelob, but now representing American empire rather than Mordor, the spine of democracy has been dissolved from the inside. It isn’t/wasn’t the Russians, China or Iran. The many acts of a corporate ‘axis of evil’ are clearly an American internal affair, and there is no one left to fix this mess in any genuine sense of ‘democratic principles’ that factually no longer exist; because water cannot be drunk from a mirage.

A logical conclusion would be empire puppet & ‘police state champion’ (Patron Saint of Incarceration) Kamala Harris had been the consensus choice of the neoliberal wing of the military/industrial corporate state; because demanding the ‘nuclear trigger’ be removed from a “deranged” Trump (beware of the false-flag with an apocalyptic Pence finger on the button) within the last two weeks of his presidency, only to hand it to Biden who’d plainly been entering a state of senile dementia from the 2020 campaigns’ inception, is an oxymoron too great, a reach too far.

Biden has been nothing more than a vehicle to ultimately put this multiple primaries loser on the throne. Because she is black and a woman, no doubt Harris’ ‘masters’ hope the ‘woke’ libtard electorate would follow her off a cliff like so many lemmings. That’s the real nature of psyops.

Capitol |ˈkapitl| (usu. the Capitol)

1 the temple of Jupiter on the Capitoline Hill in ancient Rome.
2 the seat of the US Congress in Washington, DC.

ORIGIN from Old French capitolie, later reassimilated to Latin Capitolium (from capit- ‘head’)

Well, boys & girls (or unisex, gender neutral ‘girlie-boys’ for the ‘woke’), we all thought democracy was a scintillating or capital idea. But, you-know, that empire thing grabbed it by the balls…

“The extension of the empire has meant the growth of private fortunes. This is nothing new, indeed it is in keeping with the most ancient history” -Gaius Asinius Gallus (from Tacitus, The Annals of Imperial Rome)

The 1st message that should be drawn from the USA’s ‘capitol convulsion’ is ‘color of law’ simply cannot be made to work. Any pretense of the jurists notwithstanding, an immense body of law (practically everything of significance since the National Security Act of 1947) that merely wears the make-up of  constitutional conformity, like Nancy Pelosi’s cosmetics cannot conceal the mental decay that comes with her age, is a deceit doomed to fail. It’s a bit like the USA’s satellite, the European Union, with it’s 40 paid corporate lobbyists for each European Member of Parliament sitting in Brussels, where ‘Capital’ (greed) runs these empire provinces and the ‘circus’ (examples given, National Football League in the USA, Champions League in Europe) is no longer sufficient distraction from the fact there is no reinvestment in the people (social infrastructure) necessary to maintain a spine’s healthy posture. Rather government has morphed into a corporate exoskeleton where the people’s ‘representatives’ resemble so many locusts.

The next ‘1st message’ is, when the judiciary altogether abdicates examining the USA’s history of vote fraud (it’s not like this is something that had never happened) in the modern context of hacked computers and malware, it should not be merely anticipated, but expected, there will be a perfectly predictable next act in this regard. In fact there can be no legitimate winners until the computerized vote tally is altogether jettisoned for old fashioned, publicly observed, hand counts of legitimate paper ballots because in fact both sides have a history of vote fraud and now computerized vote fraud. Unfortunately, at this point any authentic vote count is a band-aid fix that could actually intensify/magnify the societal problems in what amounts to a hopelessly sundered republic where the people have been so pervasively lied to, for so long, there are two entirely separate & artificial realities, with either side incapable of grasping neutral facts beyond the borders of their own cultural myths.

The ‘1st message’ after that is, this ain’t over folks. We’re merely (momentarily) lucky it was not ‘the shoe on the other foot.’ If it’d been antifa had stormed the Capitol, they’d have burned it down like a Soros worshiping Tory mob’s ‘liberal democracy’ troops (something that last happened in 1814.) So, then, Trump’s twitter & facebook accounts are suspended when he’s been using social media for asking his supporters to stand down and go home? Do you actually believe, were the shoe on the other foot (the Biden ‘victory’ overturned), antifa would have listened to similar message or Dorsey & ‘Suckerberg’ would have suspended the accounts of Pelosi, Shumer, Biden or Harris?

Now, when the ‘new’ (old guard) insects go after Trump with a vindictive determination and a muzzled Trump cannot say ‘don’t do this’ to his supporters in circumstance where the red states’ conservatives are being driven to a deeply superstitious conservatism of a distant past due to a real subliminal fear of a ‘liberal’ cultural revolution being imposed upon them; and the blue states’ liberals are becoming radicalized into intolerant ‘woke’ because they perceive a revanchist conservatism threat imposing what they consider are archaic social values on themselves in turn, what happens? In the corrupt circumstance of corporate locusts running the government, no matter which side prevails, the police state wins (until it all finally, convincingly & overwhelmingly tears itself apart.)

This book review is reproduced for my Australian readers, particularly, but is recommended for everybody. The simple fact this review is banned in Australia gives added credence to the exposé it covers; the excellent journalism of John Helmer debunking the MH-17 (state sponsored) disinformation campaign cooked up by liberal democracies in the geopolitical game demonizing Russia. Originally found at John Helmer’s site. Reproduced with permission.

By Evan Jones, Sydney
@bears_with

The MH17 was brought down over six years ago. John Helmer, with others, has compiled a book on the farce that has attended the pursuit of cause and culprits. Australia’s involvement is peculiarly both integral and marginal.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was brought down over Eastern Ukraine on 17 July 2014. All 298 people on board lost their lives – including 196 Dutch, 43 Malaysians and 38 Australian.

Overseen by the Dutch, a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) was established in August 2014, formally comprising personnel from the Netherlands. Ukraine, Australia and Belgium. Malaysia itself was not admitted to the JIT until late November, reputedly because of  its scepticism towards the Ukrainian version of the cause of the shoot-down and who was responsible.

Before anybody had inspected the site, that line was that Russia and/or pro-Russian rebels against Kiev did it. The weapon was a Buk ground-to-air missile, the launcher brought in from Russia and returned after the dirty deed.

The JIT investigation and Dutch court case is effectively a Dutch-Ukrainian affair. As Helmer et.al (henceforth Helmer) note, Ukraine possesses the  ‘right as a JIT member to veto what is investigated, what is disclosed, who to convict’ (Ch.6). Belgium  (4 nationals dead) is out of picture. Australia is both inside and outside the tent.

Site material reclaimed is partial, and evidence is spotty. Ukrainian air traffic control data have not been released. However, two forms of evidence, Australian-linked, appears to be atypically decisive, at least in a negative sense.

Helmer (Ch.6): ‘Two reports by Australian coronial investigators, David Ranson, a pathologist from the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine (VIFM) and Iain West, deputy coroner for the state of Victoria, have revealed the cause of death of the victims, ruling out shrapnel from an exploding Buk missile warhead. The first Ranson-West report, released in November 2014, [is outlined] here. A second report, eight pages in length and written by Ranson, followed a month later. This was sent to the Victorian State Coroner, Judge Ian Gray. …

‘To date, the consensus identification of the external blast source is a point to the left of the aircraft, forward of the left wing. … The record by [Dutch pathologist George] Maat’s Australian team members at [Dutch military base] Hilversum is that no Buk detonation could have taken place without filling the bodies of passengers on the left (port), forward side of the cabin, but the evidence of the bodies shows this didn’t happen.’

The Ranson report was released to victims’ families, discussed with the Australian Federal Police, and to select others. Ranson and West also spoke on the matter at the Asia-Pacific Coroners Society Conference in Melbourne on 14 November. However the material has subsequently been classified. Why?

The sister of the Malaysian MH17 pilot went to Halversum to inspect her brother’s body. She claimed that (Ch.8) ‘she had seen a film of his body and had been told by investigators there were no shrapnel or bullet wounds’. Her response was deflected in the Dutch media.

The Abbott government was in place. Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop had a priori opinions on whodunnit (Chs.8 & 9). In early November, Abbott claimed: ‘“We were given very strong security advice [that is, from the Americans] in the days following the atrocity as to the type of weapon, as to the place from where the weapon was fired and as to the likely prominence of the weapon and there’s been nothing since then to question that original security advice.”’

Their interests ran contrary to the information that Coroner Gray had in his possession. Abbott, titular Rhodes Scholar, had trouble reconciling his will, impetuous, with the forensic evidence produced by Australian specialists.

According to former Army officer James Brown in 2016, Abbott had initially offered to send Australian troops to control the crash site. Brown is Malcolm Turnbull’s son-in-law and apparent conduit for Turnbull’s exposé of Cabinet activity. Abbott then willingly brought Australia into an American-hatched idea to send Dutch and Australian troops (of which 3,000) into Eastern Ukraine (Ch.18), with logistic support from others. Germany said it’s not on; the Dutch then said it’s unrealistic. But Abbott had the Australian military and security establishment in knots even after the potential European partners had pulled the plug.

Malcolm Turnbull became Prime Minister in September 2015, bringing his own brand of ambiguity to the fog. Turnbull promised the victims’ families action to find and prosecute those responsible, wanted to blame the Russians, yet was more circumspect than Abbott. Turnbull declined to issue certification as to the crash’s cause that would open the way for the Australian government to pay compensation to the families under the Supporting Australian Victims of Terrorism Overseas Act.

There was another source of dissidence from Australian specialists. The Dutch Safety Board, officially responsible for investigations, had quickly (with Ukrainian and American governments’ support) attributed the aircraft’s demise to a Buk missile. Yet the senior figure in the Australian contingent, the AFP’s Detective Superintendent Andrew Donoghue, urged caution. Helmer notes (Ch.14), citing Donoghue before a Victorian Coroners Court hearing 15 December 2015, ‘“initial information that the aircraft was shot down by a [Buk] surface to air missile” did not meet the Australian or international standard of evidence’.

In court, the forensic pathologist repeated conclusions contained in his late 2014 reports that no ‘distinctive pre-formed’ metal fragments had been found in the two CT scans of the Australian victim bodies.

Donoghue also noted that, courtesy of secret Australian government negotiations with Novorussian leaders, his Australian team had belatedly gained access to the crash site, in the face of Ukrainian government-enforced restrictions. Donoghue reported that some potential witnesses who had come forward refused to testify unless provided protection from Kiev reprisals.

Bizarrely, Deputy Coroner West’s judgment defied the evidence before him from Donoghue and Ranson, claiming that the Dutch Safety Board had it right in determining that a Russian Buk missile had caused the MH17’s destruction. This in spite of the fact that West’s name is attached to the first Ranson report of November 2014 which (with the second December report) notes the absence of metal fragments in the bodies that a Buk missile warhead would have produced.

In March 2017, then Attorney General George Brandis delivered to Prime Minister Turnbull advice that there remains (Helmer) ‘insufficient evidence of what and who caused the MH17 crash to meet the Australian statutory test of a terrorist act’ (Ch.21). Apart from attribution of guilt to culprits, there is the necessity to prove malicious intent.

Several days previously, the Ukrainian government (Helmer) ‘had applied to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to convict Russia of financing, arming and aiding terrorist acts, including the destruction of MH17’. Australian legal opinion thus undermined the Ukrainian government’s move, as well as the Joint Investigation Team’s renewed claim in September 2016 (Ch.18) that the Russians and the Ukrainian rebels reliant on them were responsible. The Dutch and Ukrainians aren’t listening.

Yet Turnbull continued to publicly blame Russia. On 5 March, the Sydney Morning Herald reported Turnbull, in the context of a stoush with Senator Pauline Hanson, thus:

‘But Mr Turnbull said there was no doubt Russia was involved in the 2014 “murder”. “Vladimir Putin’s Russia is subject to international sanctions, to which Australia is a part, because of his conduct in shooting down the MH17 airliner in which 38 Australians were killed. Let’s not forget that,” he said. “That was a shocking international crime. Vladimir Putin’s Russia is not, and should not be, an object of admiration in any respect.”’

Turnbull was wearing two hats – one as lawyer, the other as politician.

Part Three of Helmer’s book (‘The standard of proof’) is devoted to the Dutch prosecutor’s absence of proof. Part Four is devoted to the trial of four accused individuals – three Russians and a Ukrainian – amidst disdain for the absence of proof, involving  a travesty of Dutch law itself.

The farcical character of the proceedings has been ignored in the Australian media. The  Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) is representative.

The  SMH did report (8  March 2020) the disgust of the Russian Ambassador to Australia at the lack of evidence for the ‘official’ accusations of Russian guilt.

The  SMH also gave voice to one Jerry Skinner (27  May 2018), an American lawyer, flamboyantly seeking victim family clients to sue first Malaysia then the innately evil Russians for their murderous act. Skinner claims to have ‘helped negotiate $2.7 billion from the Libyan government to compensate families  of victims of the Lockerbie air disaster’. Given that the Libyans were not responsible for this atrocity (see Helmer’s Ch.25), Skinner’s talents are evidently remarkable. Helmer deals with Skinner and his litigious law firm in Chs.16 & 23.

The bulk of  SMH coverage of the MH17 crash and the investigatory and legal aftermath has been carried by successive London-based correspondents Nick Miller  and Bevan Shields. Miller and Shields have dutifully repeated the Western correct line without deviation.

What and who to believe? The detached Australian might ask, how could Dutch authorities be engaged in skulduggery? Aren’t the Dutch a decent and progressive people?

Well not quite. As is noted of the MH17 book’s co-author: Max van der Werff, he ‘began his career as a citizen journalist investigating the torture of civilians by the Dutch colonial administration during the Indonesian war for independence’.

As legal academic  Ramses Wessels reported  in 2008, the Netherlands opportunistically abandoned its previous neutrality in joining NATO in 1949. Wessels notes: ‘During the Cold War, the Netherlands proved  to be an active and loyal member of the Alliance, which allowed for a much larger role in international affairs than its size would justify.’ Ah, punching above their weight – where have we heard that before?

The Netherlands continues its allegiance to what has become, following the fall of the Soviet Union, a transparently criminal organisation.

As for the economy, the opportunistic Netherlands has probably been the second biggest beneficiary after Germany of the European Union and its exploitative hierarchy. Not content with its perennial trade surplus, the Netherlands has turned itself into a tax  haven at the heart of the EU (documented meticulously by Gabriel Zucman), that status becoming particularly attractive to trans-border European companies (such as Airbus and Peugeot/Fiat).

In short, predictably, the Netherlands has no principles, only interests. And thus it is with the MH17 show trial.

In the meantime, the victims’ families are treated as mere pawns in a brutal revamping of the Cold War, with the post-coup Ukraine dictating terms via the seemingly respectable Dutch court system. It is a phenomenon beneath contempt. You’ll have to read Helmer et.al because you won’t read about it in the Australian MSM.

When this satire (follows) was originally penned as “Moot Court” in early 2016, Schafly, Scalia and Ginsberg were all still alive. The piece is ‘kind’ to Ginsberg (if that can be said of including her) but there is a  point to be made here. NOT ONE member of SCOTUS has ever raised their voice (in public at least) to question the constitutional validity of the secret so-called ‘FISA Court’ where there is zero provision for the protections from over-reach of the law supposedly assured to every American by our so-called “Bill of Rights.” Ginsberg was not a patriot as much as the fact of our Supreme Court allowing ‘color of law’ to supplant clear constitutional provisions (with no objection) renders her a political animal who failed to uphold her oath to protect and defend the rule of law (no different to the rest of that ‘august body.’) American history is full of cultural self-deceits and there is little reason to expect Ginsberg’s legacy will be any different:

“History is the lie commonly agreed upon” -Voltaire

Constitutional provisions (in italics) violated by the mere fact of the FISA Court’s existence:

Inability to sue violates the First Amendment’s right to petition the Government for a redress of grievances

The Fourth Amendment is violated in its entirety: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized

Violates the Fifth Amendment’s language No person shall be … compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law

Violates the Sixth Amendment in its entirety In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense

In short, the FISA Court is, in and of itself, illegitimate. This fact rises above any pretensions (in ‘liberal’ dissenting opinions) that the FISA law creating the court plausibly enables unconstitutional acts and should see its applications & decisions challenged & amended, when in fact the FISA Court itself is egregiously unconstitutional. It should not exist.

Meanwhile, this satire’s conclusion is by far more plausible now than it was four years ago.

In the alternative universe 2016 primary season, Bernie Sanders wins the Democratic nomination while Ted Cruz is in court fighting for the right to be on the fall ballot.

At the Supreme Court of the United States, an emergency hearing is underway on Ted Cruz’ eligibility to contest to become President of the United States. The issue before the court is whether Cruz, born in Canada to a Cuban father and American mother, is a ‘natural born’ American. Follows is the court recorder’s transcript of the ‘oral’ arguments:

In The Supreme Court of the United States

In the cause of

The Donald, Plaintiff

vs

Ted Cruz, Defendant

(sy)Phyllis Schafly & Ann Coulter; counsel of record for the Plaintiff

John Yoo; counsel of record for the Defendant

Mr Chief Justice Roberts: Counsel for the Plaintiff may proceed…

(sy)Phyllis Schafly: Distinguished Justices, it is my distinct honor to address this august body in the matter of The Donald versus Teddy. Can any of the ‘boyz’ give “Natural Born” American citizenship to their kids? Mr Justice Scalia, you say you must interpret the law strictly as it reads, literally as you see it in front you, it has taken on a life of it’s own regardless of our founders [legislative] intent. Soooo… counsel for the defense will insist we have to stick to “Natural” born because that is what the Constitution says… we cede this means you must have an American mother! But there’s another way of looking at this, a greater requirement. How can a mere American mother be truly the whole definition of natural? Were pain relievers employed? Were delivery forceps used? These preceding should disqualify a birth as natural. Was there a midwife present for delivery? A conservative view of natural birth could go so far as to demand: did the mother eat her placenta? If not, how is the defendant’s birth in any sense ‘natural’ ?  We hold our constitution’s language insists any natural birth, must be Le Boyer method with a midwife present, at minimum, otherwise no birth, any birth, can be construed to be natural.

Mr Chief Justice Roberts: Counsel for the Defendant?

John Yoo: My friends on the other side are making a specious argument. By their logic, except a midwife were to be present, most citizens could not be elected president if born of an American mother via modern process. Any such demand of the law is archaic. Now, what are we to do with a general and widespread absence of midwives? Practice necromancy? Henry VIII had Thomas a’Becket’s bones disinterred and put him on trial, so, other than 14 years residence requirement, there is precedent to bring Benedict Arnold’s bones home from England and following 14 years, we could elect a dead treasonous president. Or dig up Andy Jackson… if only because in earlier times it was common to deliver with a midwife. What living person would be eligible today?

Mr Justice Kennedy: Rebuttal?

(sy)Phyllis Schafly: Andy put his middle finger right where the sun never shines… in this Supreme Court’s predecessor and our constitution’s anus when he said “John Marshall has said what the law is, now let him enforce it”

Mr Justice Scalia: Mr Yoo?

John Yoo: Precedent holds ’I-da-ho’ born (pardon the Black English) Sarah ‘it sucks to be me’ Palin’s fellow Bible fascist, John McCain, was born in Panama of U.S. parents and McCain is a constitutionally legitimate “Natural Born American.” And surely this is because the United States Senate said so … speaking of any legitimate “Natural” birth… and Mr Justice Scalia, you state you must read the constitution literally… because it’s all about original intent… that is, “natural birth” could be our supreme law’s demand but in the annals of stare decisis established by this court it’s not necessarily our right!

Ms Justice Ginsberg: Mr Yoo, when referencing the ‘senate’, are you inferring ‘Caesarean’ birth is not eligible? Under any circumstance? Are we still a republic of laws or a case of Brutus’ gratitude shown to his patrimony? Please, I don’t require answer!

Ms Justice Ginsberg sits back and steadily staring at Yoo, primly pushes her spectacles up the bridge of her nose with a middle finger

Mr Justice Scalia: Ms Coulter?

Ann Coulter: Mr Justice Scalia, you learned from the Marshall court… tit for tat… you stopped the recount in Florida and elected George Bush… and put your middle finger up all of America and the world’s ass… speaking of where the sun never shines… the place where George was born to peer out from… we so love our ‘living constitution’ for that!

Coulter and Schafly, pitched their argument to the liberal justices, hoping for Mr Justice Kennedy’s ‘swing’ vote, but Coulter realizing her side could be losing, hikes up her already too short skirt, sits down and spreads her legs in full view of the several justices. Mr Justice Thomas inadvertently blurts out “Long Dong Silver!” as ‘Oral’ argument chaos ensues with counsels’ reptilian reflex soon turning the subject to democrats

John Yoo: Object!

Mr Chief Justice Roberts: Mr Yoo?

John Yoo: If Ms Coulter’s skirt were any shorter, we’d be arguing the color of her panties!

Ms Justice Sotomayor: I assure counsel for the defendant Ms Coulter is NOT wearing panties. The view from the bench is clear… Mr Yoo, in absence of the stated object, your objection cannot be contextualized in present justiciable controversy [smiles]

Mr Chief Justice Roberts: Objection over-ruled. Ms Schafly?

Mr Chief Justice Roberts is now staring at Coulter constantly, as is Ms Justice Sotomayor, not only Mr Justice Thomas

(sy)Phyllis Schafly: There could be a problem with ‘unnatural’ birth in the senate membership per se. Example given, those several Senate lawyers sucking off corporate PAC cocks, the worst sort of unnatural, closet morality you can imagine, speaking of the unnatural cocksuckers who give birth to our patently unconstitutional laws… nothing natural at all going on there. As well, a case of unnatural rebirth would be Al Franken giving up comedy to suck off corporate PACs… should have been a miscarriage somewhere there. Abort? I suggest respectfully the several honorable justices affirming Citizens United would have approved ‘termination’ in Senator Franken’s case. What candidate from the senate, any candidate from the senate, can claim natural birth?

Mr Justice Alito: Heil Fulgencio Batista! Excuse me, I meant, Mr Yoo will again proceed?

Mr Justice Alito is also constantly staring at Coulter

John Yoo: Joe ‘Homo Erect’us’ Biden… with his dentu-crème smile, is in line to replace the “Natural” born Obama… we should appreciate Joe’s sobriquet “Homo Erect’us” because Joe is from Senator Larry ‘closet latrine homo’ Craig’s “chamber”, so what is the possible problem with that? Larry Craig was never ineligible for reason of his natural perversions, considering science has demonstrated bonobos masturbate using holes, any holes, assholes, holes in trees, the oral orifice… as Hillary’s possible running mate, why risk another eight years of the wholly natural PAC-sucker ‘Homo ‘Erect’us’ Joe presiding over the senate?

Yoo is desperately thinking but fears his inexperience if he were to bring cunnilingus into the argument

Ms Justice Kagan: Ms Schafly?

Ms Justice Kagan, now breathing heavily, has also been staring all the time at Coulter

(sy)Phyllis Schafly: Joe ‘Homo ‘Erect’us’ Biden is just another ‘unnatural’ venal corporate cocksucker, he has taken piles of PAC money… never mind he secretly wants Israel to blow up Iran who will in turn blow up Berlin, Brussels, London and Paris, not merely Tel Aviv. Not to mention Iran blowing up our CIA liaised special forces in Baluchistan, Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, soldiers who only wish our Congressional military/industrial corporate PAC cocksuckers did not keep them in perpetual deployments to war on behalf of Exxon/Mobil and Chevron… and wish the unnatural Congressional cocksuckers would just shut down the money paying for those wars [that would be constitutional] and maybe we could use some of the money saved to get breadwinners working in homeless families rebuilding our infrastructure… get them off the street… but Congress is too preoccupied with unnatural sucking bank and military/industrial PAC cocks to do that… Joe needs the ‘erect’ taken out of  his ‘homo’ to become wholly sapien but behavior modifications fail with rapists and pedophiles and likely unnatural primitive-warmonger-venal-corporate-PAC-cocksuckers as well, we all NEVER want ‘Dentu-Crème smiles Joe’ to be elevated to president…

Mr Justice Breyer: Mr Yoo?

Mr Justice Breyer has been studiously avoiding looking at Coulter

John Yoo: My client is born again! “Born again” is natural birth!! What could be more natural than possessed by the Holy Spirit? Aaaar-papa-papa-hula. Ooooo-vagino. Oreo-lolo-andy-olliegarcho-golly-boris-alloweeeenie!

Ann Coulter: I object to any such “tortured” argument! Fuck Yoo!! Stop speaking in tongues!!! Keep religion out of it!!!!

Mr Chief Justice Roberts: Can anyone here translate tongues? No? Objection sustained.

As the story of Bernie Sanders nomination by the Democratic convention breaks on the newswires, Mr Chief Justice Roberts opens an envelope delivered by his clerk

Mr Chief Justice Roberts: I’ve just been passed a note from Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Dumbford. The general has declared himself Chief Executive Officer of these Christian Dominion States of America for life. All federal elections are suspended in perpetuity. Per General Dumbford’s orders, I hereby suspend the constitution on account of ongoing threat of terror and appoint all of this institution’s colleagues on my right to the FISA Court and further rule this body dissolved until General Dumbford’s new personnel are in place. The Donald versus Cruz is moot! [gavel bangs]

Mr Justice Kennedy’s ‘tent pole’ collapses beneath his judicial robe, Mr Chief Justice Roberts, together with Mr Justices Alito, Scalia and Thomas, jump up to perform high fives, totally oblivious to robes revealing their ‘artillery’ is deployed horizontally

The Satires

Update: On the 3rd of June charges against Derek Chauvin were upgraded to include second degree murder.

Floyd Murder - 1

Judging from the video (enlarged screenshot, above), Derek Chauvin enjoyed the act of killing George Floyd, hands in his pockets, nonchalant, rocking his knee pinning Floyd’s neck to the pavement with near full force of his body weight. Then, Chauvin’s former ‘moonlight employer’ says in no uncertain terms Chauvin had exhibited symptoms of cowardice when on the job as security at her night club:

“He seemed afraid when there was an altercation. He always resorted to pulling out his mace and pepper spraying everyone right away, even when I felt it was unwarranted” [1]

So, Chauvin felt ‘brave’ murdering Floyd when his buddies had his back, no doubt disgusting those good cops who should break ranks and condemn in no uncertain terms the culture of cowardice behind police brutality.

Minnesota Statutes Sections 609.19 – Murder in the Second Degree and 609.195 – Murder in the Third Degree [2]

Murder in the 2nd Degree: 1) Killing a human intentionally, but without premeditation (not thinking about or preparing for before), 2) Killing a human while committing or attempting a drive-by shooting, 3) Causing someone’s death without intending the death of anyone, while committing a felony other than criminal sexual conduct or a drive-by shooting, and 4) Causing a death unintentionally, while intentionally inflicting or attempting to inflict great physical harm on the victim when the murderer is currently restrained by a protection order (including for domestic violence, harassment, divorce, or any similar protection order) and the victim was the protected party in that order.

Third-degree murder in Minnesota is causing someone’s death by one of two ways: 1) A depraved heart or mind murder, which places others in eminent danger of death and disregarding human life and 2) unintended death by use of scheduled drugs

The penalty for Murder in the 2nd Degree is maximum 40 years. The penalty for Murder in the 3rd Degree is maximum 25 years.

Chauvin is charged with 3rd Degree murder while people are calling for 1st Degree murder charge but that apparently requires element of premeditation (a planned murder.)

How the murder charge could/should be upgraded to 2nd Degree murder and 40 years for Chauvin under Minnesota law is, interestingly…

Causing a death unintentionally, while intentionally inflicting or attempting to inflict great physical harm on the victim when the murderer is currently restrained by a protection order (including for domestic violence, harassment, divorce, or any similar protection order) and the victim was the protected party in that order

…because once he’d been handcuffed, Floyd should have been under a DE FACTO protective order protecting his civil rights, particularly his right to life, while under arrest in police custody according to the (widely ignored) rules governing police behavior, which should be construed to constitute a permanent, general purpose protective order.

Hoping the right person sees this and passes it on to those attorneys of influence who can insist Chauvin be put away for 40 years (where the coward will live in fear for the remainder of his days.)

About Meduza

“…We value our independence and strive to be a reliable, trusted outlet for verified, unbiased information about Russia…”

Yet Meduza, with its’ investigative reporting, hasn’t touched one of the most important, ongoing stories concerning Russia in the 21st Century; rather serves to prop up the unverified, highly biased Western propaganda line accusing Russia of hacking the Democratic National Committee. We’ll come back to this but first:

Speech_Zone - 1

USA ‘color revolution’ hopeful (perennial loser), Alexy Navalny, whose support in Western press crosses every line of hypocrisy, is a lawyer. One might think that he would study the law of that foreign government which supports him most; and discover he could be, if a USA citizen protesting without a permit, be arrested, fined and/or jailed. Or, if by some rational consideration, Navalny (the hypothetical USA citizen), were to abide by the American laws governing protests & protesters, he could be confined to a ‘free speech cage’ (see above illustration.)

Navalny’s most recent protest he organized without a proper permit in Moscow? It was over Meduza Magazine’s investigative reporter, Ivan Golunov, detained on false charges by counter-narcotics police. According to the CIA’s favorite yellow sheet, the New York Times:

Organizers had called the protest to support a Russian journalist, Ivan Golunov, whom supporters say the police had framed on drug charges last week. Pictures produced by the police that seemed to show a drug lab in the reporter’s apartment had been faked. In a rare about-face, the authorities released Mr. Golunov on Tuesday, acknowledged that there was no evidence to support the charges and opened an investigation into the police who had detained him”

Ok, so Russia has corrupt police, now, for a comparison, try your favorite search engine with this precise terminology: “Police ‘throw down’ gun” and see what comes up; decades of American police habit of placing a gun in the hand of an unarmed man they’d shot dead. So, whose police are the greater evil? Let’s consult Jesus:

“You hypocrite! First pull the log from your own eye, so you may see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye”

Back to Meduza and the story their ‘award winning’ investigative reporter Ivan Golunov (or any of the Meduza staff) won’t touch; how it is the Russian state had been framed for the Democratic National Committee [DNC] mails ‘hack’ that was actually a DNC insider leak by the assassinated Seth Rich.

Screenshots of two mails (no replies) I’d sent to Meduza on different occasions of their propping up of a tired ‘the Russians did it’ propaganda lie:

On 11 August 2018

Meduza - 1

“Dear Meduza

When allegations which have been rebutted by multiple independent sources & experts…

“…In 2017, when he was finally arrested, Kozlovsky personally took credit for hacking the Democratic National Committee, claiming that he acted on Dokuchaev’s explicit orders. Already in pretrial detention when Kozlovsky made these allegations…”

@ https://meduza.io/en/feature/2018/08/07/it-s-our-time-to-serve-the-motherland

…are presented in a manner that allows for readers to take the allegations as plausible fact, it poisons the entire narrative (all of your article.) For a start, I suggest Meduza open to possibility the USA’s FBI is as (or more) corrupt as any agency in Russia and then have a read:

“The history of the great events of this world are scarcely more than a history of crime” -Voltaire [end quote]

And on 12 November 2018

Meduza - 1 (1)

“Hello Meduza

Why do you go on discrediting your publication with this following, tired lie invented by US intelligence:

“According to U.S. intelligence, this was also a base of operations for 10 hackers and GRU officers who infiltrated the Democratic National Committee computer network”

@ https://meduza.io/en/feature/2018/11/06/what-is-the-gru-who-gets-recruited-to-be-a-spy-why-are-they-exposed-so-often

There was no Russian ‘hack’ of the DNC, it was an insider theft. It’s just a pity when an intelligence professional looks at your media platform and see you disseminate the very sort of disinformation you propose to expose, discrediting your larger work. Here’s the better information:

http://ronaldthomaswest.com

“The history of the great events of this world are scarcely more than a history of crime” -Voltaire [end quote]

So, Meduza, the hard-hitting anti-corruption publication exposing dirt in Russian politics, ducks the biggest story of our time; how it is Russia had ‘hacked’ the DNC mails, actually an American intelligence agency fraudulent propaganda line and more: Meduza upholds this fake news story with 3rd party references rather than dig into what should otherwise produce displeasing result to all those in love with Navalny’s perception of Putin.

So, who is the boogeyman here, who are the liars? Putin or Navalny? Pravda or Meduza? Hosted by NATO Chihuahua Latvia, Meduza Magazine works out of an extreme Russophobe environment. One might suppose it were never a black & white world when faced with news about Russia from certain self-hating Russians –

 

Impunity & The International Criminal Court

The above link delves into impunity at the international level. Insofar as the USA’s exercise of impunity, of considerable recent importance, in my estimation, it is the deep state’s Robert Mueller role-as-mole or ‘special counsel’ in ‘the Russians did it’ charade should draw the necessary attention to underline the intelligence agencies anti-Constitutional order embedded in the USA’s security structures.

Of the exposures (in the public domain) of this man as a fraud devoted to what amounts to an anti-constitutional order that has stepped itself up and above the rule of law, there are three that stand out to a degree disqualifying Robert Mueller as anything excepting corrupt;

1) in his role as deputy attorney general during the Bush 41 administration, Robert Mueller, when directly accountable William Barr in Barr’s first term as Attorney General for President George H.W. Bush, Mueller headed up the USA end of the Lockerbie investigation that was later exposed by a Chief of Scots police as a frame-up of Libya due to false evidence and testimony provided by the USA;

2) it was Robert Mueller, again under the direct supervision of GHW Bush’s Attorney General William Barr, had been exposed by a United States Senate investigation (that was never acted on) showing Mueller sandbagged the criminal case against Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) and subsequently;

3) it was Robert Mueller’s FBI for over a decade refused to arrest a serial killer, Enrique Prado, despite more than ample evidence (a proverbial ‘mountain’ of evidence) provided to the Department of Justice by both state and federal law enforcement.

The common thread in these events? It is the Central Intelligence Agency. The USA end of the Lockerbie investigation was tied to false physical evidence planted by the CIA and the FBI provided the ‘expert’ testimony of Thomas Thurman (later exposed as a fraud) under then Assistant Attorney General Robert Mueller’s supervision, subverting the BCCI case was all about the CIA’s Iran-Contra international arms and narcotics money laundering Mueller worked to limit exposure to (damage control) and Enrique Prado is not only a serial killer, documented by multiple law enforcement officials as responsible for multiple drug cartel related murders that Mueller’s FBI failed to act on, but also happens to double as a high ranking CIA official who moved on to Blackwater where the CIA’s contract killings became outsourced (Prado remains free & has never been prosecuted.)

Of the many instance of Robert Mueller’s dirty work for CIA, these three cases are remarkable for the fact they are reasonably indisputable. [1], [2], [3], [4]

Whatever the preceding indicates per ‘the Russians did it’ hysteria certainly does not include good faith compliance with the rule of law when all indicators point to the USA’s top law enforcement officials should be convicted felons in their own right.

Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept calls out the New York Times journalists exposing ‘fake news’ by pointing out they’re plagiarizing Russian media on what actually happened with the torched ‘humanitarian aid’ at the Venezuela-Colombia border. Huh? Yeah, it’s a head-scratch worthy of a political chimp, because Greenwald DOES NOT explore the most important question: who benefits from the NYT story in media that (Greenwald acknowledges) might as well be outright owned by the (deep) state. The real story here? White House occupying Kissinger-philosophy-neocon-Christian-Zionist-Pentagon centered ‘national security’ clique 0 – 1 wannabe White House occupying Brzezinski-philosophy-neoliberal-globalist-CIA centered ‘national security’ clique (noting there is some overlay between cliques from their respective bases of power.)

Russian media prints what you won’t see in your everyday liberal democracies’ newspaper; British intelligence had proposed a plan to massacre Catholic schoolchildren in Northern Ireland but this was a reach too far, even for the Ulster Protestant extremists:

These stories typically come out when it is far past time to bring the perpetrators to justice (dead or fear dying with guilty conscience) but this next one points to the British-USA skullduggery going on in the here and now:

Per the preceding story, I don’t expect for one minute Trump is clean (and it does not bode well a blackmail susceptible reality TV freak is POTUS) but he’s a petty criminal character by comparison to what’s covered up at the United States Department of Justice.

This story has to do with 1) denial, 2) conspiracy and/or 3) coverup. In any of the preceding, or combinations thereof, the underlying principle driving this vacuous media non-event is cowardice.

Beginning with a flashback to another case involving the German extreme right, where there had been initial, strong, circumstantial evidence radicalized German police were involved in the murder of a policewoman, Michèle Kiesewetter, by an ideologically similar Nazi terrorist cell (helped coordinate her murder) and the case was finally buried after:

“Heinz Fromm, then the president of the BfV [German FBI], voluntarily resigned in 2012 after it became known that files related to the NSU had been destroyed shortly after the group’s existence became public. Any remaining BfV files on the NSU have been redacted or remain under lock and key. Some others were destroyed, even after the investigation had begun” [1]

The NSU terrorists has been a serial killer cell targeting immigrants across Germany, but with this policewoman a glaring exception:

“The Bild tabloid … reported that the two NSU terrorists, Uwe Böhnhardt and Uwe Mundlos, had for days been lying in wait for the police officer in vain, because she had suddenly decided to spend a holiday with her mother. But on April 25, 2007, Kiesewetter telephoned the department where she worked in Heilbronn, asking to be placed on patrol. According to the duty roster, she should have been off.

“Böhnhardt and Mundlos subsequently extended the lease on their caravan home. The newspaper asked: “Did they receive a tip-off?” Could it possibly have come from the two police officers with ties to the [German chapter] Ku Klux Klan, one of whom was Kiesewetter’s boss?” [2]

With that all wrapped up and neatly buried by Angela Merkel’s BfV (federal police), the two ultra-right German cops, who well may have (likely did) assist in the murder of their colleague, kept their jobs after relevant investigative files had been destroyed; we come to today’s story that actually had been broken just after midnight or 00:25 AM Friday morning Central Europe Time by the online edition of FOCUS Magazine [3] where it is reported (this portion of the article translated to English)

“In the investigative case of [lieutenant] Franco A. the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) has apparently developed evidence of a larger conspiratorial network of radical survivalists, i.e. people preparing for a possible end of the world, within the German army. FOCUS reports and refers to investigation files of the BKA.

“Indeed, there appears to be numerous connections to an association for elite soldiers and members of the special forces command (KSK). According to eyewitnesses, in chat groups and at real meetings of survivalists, there were concrete plans for a so-called “Day X”, “to send unpopular politicians to a place of executions”.

“In addition, secret weapons depots and fuel storage have been created, reports FOCUS. On a death list not yet found, the leader of the Left Party in the Bundestag, Dietmar Bartsch, should be at the top. As part of the investigation last year, the house of a Rostock local politician and lawyer was searched. A [military counter-intelligence] lieutenant colonel obstructed the investigation”

As I am writing this, it is nearly 48 hours since the story broke. It has been picked up by British and Russian press [4], [5], [6], [7] beginning more than 24 hours ago but apparantly not in German publications other than FOCUS, who broke the story. By the time of Sunday’s English editions of Deutsche Welle, Handelsblatt, The Local and The Munich Eye, there is no mention of a story where a cell amounting to around 200 of Germany’s elite soldiers have a parallel structure in place, provisioned  and armed, so far consisting of (identified as) officers and senior non-commissioned officers up to the rank of colonel; with a concrete mission to slaughter immigrants and politicians.

All of the headlines are WWI armistice covering politicians sanctimonious speeches whilst ignoring the very necrosis infecting their institutions that had led to incredible bloodbaths of the past, and this habit had preceded both WWI and the subsequent Nazis, for instance the German slaughter of Namibians. [8]

So, what’s the delay in the reporting? Too embarrassing to spoil Merkel’s visits to sprawling graveyards, with soldiers’ headstones as far as one can see? Is the larger German press waiting for some guidance, for instance Merkel’s government must meet first and decide on proper spin? Not immediately newsworthy? Oh, and although this case uncovering the military cell is over a year old with the colonel’s case (very quietly) before a court, the relevant parliamentary oversight was never informed? That certainly smells wrong.

Judging by how the murder of Michèle Kiesewetter had been handled, don’t hold you breath the closet Nazi [9] institutions of Angela Merkel’s government will clean out this necrosis. After all, this investigator (your’s truly) handed what amounted to the European chapter of the present day Gladio [10] head (a ton of actionable intelligence that was suppressed) on a platter to the German police, and the political players at the top appear to have simply stitched that head back onto the body of the criminal organization. [11]

The black & white of it is, Germany has never shed its Nazi spots or this military terrrorist cell would have been broken up long ago. What a pity the honest low and mid-level cops work is ultimately undermined and suppressed at the top, in circumstance where that tired Flanders mare Merkel hasn’t the nerve to sack people surrounding her and bring in honest law enforcement to pull up the evil at the root.

The historical lesson in this? We can credit Napoleon for unifying the German states, enabling Bismarck to subsequently school a majority of the Germans into proper lock-step Prussian mentalities who, ostensibly put in their place after WWII, can nonetheless employ their intelligence services to contribute towards chaos in Syria and Ukraine… meanwhile Merkel says nothing when Macron speaks out and rehabilitates the Nazi collaborator Marshal Petain. [12]

This is a f’d up Europe folks, and if you don’t see the rot, even when  you can smell it, it is because the dead material of the European leaders’ ethics is concealed as matter of habit. The mere facts Merkel is a pastor’s daughter with a degree in physics cannot confer courage or a soul.
