The nuts and bolts of the world’s biggest scam

Ok, so the EU & USA demand all ‘democratic’ states ‘privatize’ their assets to belong to the ‘club’ of the truly civilized. The point of this privatization is to ‘increase competition’ which, according the history of economics we all were taught, via the several ‘privileged to live in a democracy’ state mandated educations, is to prevent monopolies gouging the consumer and keep competition & prices ‘fair.’ According to the ‘metadata rules’ of this gig, we should all remain duly impressed with the idea this is a humane system affording opportunity for everyone to play the game on a level field with no unethical advantage made available to any participating party.

Enter the EU together with the multinational corporation (and the USA as ‘strong-arm’ enforcer), post cold-war world and in general terms it actually goes more along the lines of this:

The former Warsaw pact (& other non-NATO) regimes of Europe inherit state owned resources and utilities. Corruption is endemic and infrastructure dated (however adequate) but the price of electricity is cheap and the poor of the rural population are in a position to survive via developing community self-sufficiency (personal and regional sovereignty) in a local farm-to-market economy with the many farms repatriated to the heirs of the pre-socialist owners. Then, enter ‘privatization.’

First, the formerly socialist states governments are pressured to ‘divest’ themselves of ownership over the utilities. What this ‘first step’ towards EU membership means is, those corporations with hundreds of millions in ‘investment cash’ are invited to buy the state’s assets. The state was non-profit but for tax beyond infrastructure maintenance (supporting other state institutions, e.g. education & military) but suddenly that is all changed. The new ownership demands a profit margin in addition to infrastructure maintenance and the ‘profit’ begins flowing out of the national economy and into the pockets of multinational corporate shareholders, or the 1% of the ‘liberal democracies’ population who actually hold a monopoly of wealth over Western society. When ‘private’ control of the infrastructure is consolidated over the nation, the state must raise taxes on land, production & commerce over the common citizenry to support state institutions, because the privatized infrastructure is in the hands of powerful lobbies with direct access to the political structures; where corrupt but ‘legal’ practices provide for ‘tax incentives’ (often amounting to paying little tax, no tax or even the state subsidizing the corporation) under various pretexts … for instance state subsidies for ‘infrastructure’ upgrades where work at greatly inflated prices are directed to politically favored businesses. Meanwhile the price of utilities skyrocket, stressing ordinary citizens (poor by Western standards in a period of system transition.)

As these states are prodded to ‘progress’ towards ‘competitive’ economies, other assets are surrendered to exploitation, where state owned arable land is turned over to business partners of the elite (1%) and the World Bank and the International Money Fund are employed to subject the state to debt slavery; whilst laundering the facts surrounding people unethically dispossessed of their lands is, with false reporting, facilitated via corporate wedded intelligence agency infected arms of Western governments such as USAID and the UK’s Department for International Development (who are sometimes caught but this is not widely disseminated news.) [1]

When control over the state is consolidated by Western institutions where the EU and NATO serve as front & enforcer for multinational corporations instituting what amounts to de facto neocolonialism, the second order of robbery begins. Hundreds of thousands of independent farmers are driven off their lands by the European Union’s ‘sanitary regulations’ demand of modernization requiring equipment and infrastructure upgrades the small farmers and their communities cannot afford. Economically displaced, these people become migrant workers typically employed in manual labor such as the construction industry in the more rapidly developing states or become demographic substitute workers in developed states in the North of the EU where the birth rate is in decline. The carryover consequence of this second level of robbery is several-fold; food sovereignty is surrendered to multinational corporate dictated farming in league with the likes of Monsanto & Syngenta; food supply is no longer localized (direct farm to market) but reflects increased prices of ‘globalized’ import/export transportation costs; the new EU dictated ‘sanitary’ food supply is poisoned with big business enriching agri-chemicals (e.g. glysophate); the new, intensive corporate mono-culture farming degrades the land and environment, especially polluting water resources; and certainly not least, these new EU member nations lose generations of farming knowledge in twenty short years with the nations former farmers children dispossessed of growing up immersed in traditional agriculture that could/should have been converted to ‘bio’ (organic) farming method, but instead the loss of knowledge in the populace cementing the nation in corporate servitude (it all comes back to food sovereignty, by now severely, dangerously degraded.)

Throughout the process of implementing this preceding, the EU’s anti-corruption rhetoric is actually so much hyperbole, the real problem for the EU institutions isn’t with corruption but with corruption practiced incompetently and/or openly; Brussels’ anti-corruption reports have been shelved and are no longer released for the reasons the obscene amount of one hundred twenty billion Euro per year was by several competent accounts far below the actual level AND growing worse for each reporting period, since the last report was released in 2014 (the report scheduled for 2016 has been withheld from the public and there hasn’t been an EU produced report since.) [2], [3]

But in actuality, at the meta-level, it is much worse than this.

The Symbiotic Relationship

In any of the several ‘independent’ corruption level indexes produced by ‘transparency’ NGOs, there is a classic misdirection where one will see the graphs pointing to the Northern European states as ‘least corrupt.’ What is missing is the relevant data on what could be called ‘transcendent corruption’ where the several northern EU states appear to have captured and exercise (with impunity) control over the entire corrupt business from the top.

It was the American Dulles brothers set the standard. Those intimately familiar with 20th Century European history should know the Dulles brothers, Allen and John Foster Dulles, pre World War II business careers stink as high as the heavens, here’s a thumbnail sketch…

“Early in 1933, both Dulles brothers attended a meeting in Germany where German industrialists agreed to back Hitler’s bid for power in exchange for his pledge to break the German unions. A few months later, John Foster Dulles negotiated a deal with Hitler’s economics minister whereby all German trade with the United States would be coordinated through a syndicate headed by [Dulles brothers’ business associate] Averell Harriman’s cousin. With the Nazis enforcing a favorable climate for business, the profits for Thyssen and other companies soared, and the [Dulles brothers’ client] Union Banking Corporation increasingly became a Nazi money-laundering machine. In 1934, George Herbert Walker placed Prescott Bush on Union Bank’s board of directors, and Bush and Harriman also began to use the bank as the basis for a complex and deceptive system of holding companies … Rather than advising Walker and Harriman to divest themselves of these tainted assets, Prescott Bush hired Allen Dulles to help conceal them. From 1937 on, the Dulles brothers would serve Bush and Harriman in all their covert dealings with Nazi firms. They also performed similar cloaking services for others, like the Rockefellers … they both funded and profited from Hitler’s crimes against humanity. However, their entire enterprise was corrupt in a more subtle sense as well, in that its very basis was financial fraud on an unprecedented scale. That would have been true even if Hitler had never come to power. The real significance of adding the Nazis to the equation was that it upped the stakes, both increasing the potential rewards for the participants [Dulles’ clients] and forcing them into increasingly elaborate deceptions to conceal their frauds” [4]

…followed by Hitler’s top Eastern Front spy turned into post-war Germany’s founding head of today’s Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND or German CIA)

“Dulles … led the push to save Reinhard Gehlen, Nazi head of intelligence on the Eastern Front and a genuine monster, from any post-war justice. Dulles then made certain Gehlen and his spies received a cozy embrace from the CIA, and helped push him to the top of West Germany’s Federal Intelligence Service” [5]

&

“at least 100 officers within the Gehlen organization were former SD or Gestapo officers” [6]

How’d that come about?

“From 1945-1947, elements in the US army conspired to maintain contacts with former German anti-communists in Europe and their German army commander, General Reinhard Gehlen. 5 men were involved of whom 3 (William J. Donovan, Allen Dulles and Frank Wisner) were representatives of the Wall St. overworld and also of the New York Social Register which listed the members of New York high society. They were awaiting a new agency to succeed Donovan’s Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and take over the Nazi’s ethnic armies in Eastern Europe. But the idea of a centralised intelligence agency encountered fierce competitive opposition from the FBI’s J. Edgar Hoover who was backed at first by elements of Army intelligence. Although it took 2 years to overcome their opponents, the Wall Street lawyers and bankers in Truman’s administration succeeded in 1947 in establishing CIA, which would report to the president through the new National Security Council (NSC). This new agency, based on the precedent and personnel of the OSS had been urged on Washington by the War/Peace studies of the Council of Foreign Relations in the early 1940s. It was reinforced by a report commissioned in 1945 by Navy Secretary James V. Forrestal. The report was written by Ferdinand Eberstadt who like Forrestal was a private Wall Street banker from the investment bank, Dylan Reed. As CIA director Richard Helms narrates in his memoirs Allen Dulles, then a Republican lawyer in Sullivan and Cromwell in New York was recruited in 1946 to draft proposals for the shape and direction what was to become the new CIA. in 1947 Dulles promptly formed an advisory group of 6 men, all but one of whom were Wall St investment bankers or lawyers” [7]

Yeah, all of this post-war ‘business’ stuff went on when CIA Director Allen Dulles brother & lifelong business partner, John Foster Dulles, was one of the most powerful men in the world and practically postwar Europe’s ‘overlord plenipotentiary’ as ‘General turned President’ Eisenhower’s Secretary of State. The result? The liberal democracies [NATO & EU states] intelligence agencies overtaken by (run on behalf of) rich corporate, Russophobe fascists wedded to international banking and multinational corporations comprising the liberal democracies ‘shadow government’ whose bought and/or blackmailed minions (bureaucrats) are collectively called the ‘deep state.’ Common citizens health & welfare mean zero, zip, nada to these people. This is the structure behind ‘privatization.’

Where do the symptoms jump out today? Both NATO and the EU’s intelligence apparatus are run by Germany’s foreign intelligence service:

NATO’s intelligence chief, Arndt Freytag von Loringhoven, is a former head of Germany’s BND and son of Hitler’s last serving staff intelligence officer during the Battle for Berlin. [8]

EU intelligence chief, Gerhard Conrad, is a German BND officer. [9]

Where & who are the EU’s Northern states ‘transcendent corruption’ (above the law) personalities represented in NATO? At the top, the past three NATO Secretary Generals are, in order of service from present to past:

Jens Stoltenberg, a former Prime Minister of Norway.

Ander Fogh Rasmussen, a former Prime Minister of Denmark.

Jaap de Hoop Sheffer, a former Foreign Minister of the Netherlands.

What crime do all of the above, intelligence chiefs and Secretaries General, share in common (other than current geopolitical crimes of the first magnitude, such as supporting the neo-nazis running Ukraine or lending support to framing Russia with false evidence like the ‘Steele Dossier’, Skripal poisonings and not least, Dutch intelligence writing the fiction surrounding the downing of MH17) ?

?

All are sitting quiet on the Western intelligence agencies participation in the practically solved but un-prosecuted murders of…

Dag Hammarskjold, a Secretary General of the United Nations. [10]

Olof Palme, a Prime Minister of Sweden. [11]

Bernt Carlsson, a United Nations Assistant Secretary General [12]

…each of which had stood in the way of Western liberal democracy based corporate multinationals looting nations for raw resources such as diamonds and yellow cake (uranium), a legacy of the Dulles brothers intelligence agencies & related political structures developed to benefit corporate greed.

It follows, when the EU and NATO come calling, the level of play surrounding ‘transcendent corruption’ is well understood by politicians (who’re briefed on the reality when arriving) at the top: including the real threat of assassination to those who ‘don’t play ball’ on the terms of certain multinational corporate entities behind ‘privatization.’

“Dag Hammarskjöld was on the point of getting something done when they killed him”  -former USA President Harry Truman [13]

The question lurking behind this satire is; if Wikileaks is in a position to crush ‘the Russians did it’ DNC bs, why haven’t they? Because Assange is more important than pulling the rug out from the morons in DC using the patent ‘hack’ bullshit to jack geopolitical rivalry and tensions with Russia, incredibly, dangerously high? Craig Murray needs to come clean –

Craig Murray
(& result of the moron-o-meter exam)

I’d perused the Wikispooks biography page on Craig Murray [1] and noticed a few things. Craig Murray insists he has lived…

“as a dissident where I have devoted my life to exposing, and trying to counter, the evil of the neo-conservative policy pursued by our political class at the behest of the corporations who fund them. I have suffered a huge loss in money, status and most of the other normal aspirations. But what I have gained is invaluable. I have respect and love, while Blair and Straw will forever be despised”

Well, Craig, as much as I despise the neoliberals Blair and Straw and their neoliberal policies, you certainly don’t have my respect and love. Notice the first symptom of a personality flaw: the cultural imperative where drive to wealth and status is a “normal aspiration.” I very much doubt Murray has preserved his original working class dialect for everyday use. In Britain, the first words out of one’s mouth typically identifies a person’s class affiliation.

Handicapped by upper class aspirations = minus one point.

Doesn’t know the difference between a neoconservative & a neoliberal = minus one point.

“Following publication of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s Report on the CIA’s Use of Torture in December 2014, Craig Murray said “Can I just say how pleasant it is to be vindicated ten years after being sacked by Jack Straw for opposing the torture and extraordinary rendition programme – which Blair and Straw claimed I was inventing.” In an audio interview on 12 December 2014, Craig Murray recounted his experience to Scottish journalist and broadcaster Derek Bateman examining the legacy of Labour in a week when revelations about state-sanctioned torture by the CIA under Bush/Cheney further threaten the reputation of the Blair government” -Wikispooks

…Murray’s ‘pleased to be vindicated’ based on a calculated whitewash report where CIA complicity in a far wider legacy of kidnapping to torture had been glossed over is hardly the stuff of playing hardball against the team of criminals. Murray should have done the math; 119 prisoners (the report’s numbers) renditioned to black sites versus eleven thousand identified renditions plane flights just doesn’t add up [2]

Sucked up an establishment produced, deliberate whitewash of CIA renditions = minus one point.

Murray believes in virgin birth, the tooth fairy and the patent nonsense World Trade Center Building 7 died of fright on 9/11, no matter thousands of professionals with understanding of steel & concrete structures conclude there was at least one, indisputable, professionally engineered building demolition at WTC on 9/11 [3]

“Craig Murray announced in 2010 that he would summarily remove any comments about 9/11 from his website, stating his own position that “I do not believe that the US government, or any of its agencies, were responsible for 9/11. It would just need too many people to be involved. Someone would have objected”” -Wikispooks

Cowardly aversion to ‘conspiracy theorist’ label = minus one point.

Murray is a professionally trained diplomat but not a spook. This is clear on more than one point (see a second point in his Wikileaks interactions) and this one goes to Murray’s rank fail on how spy agencies propagandize their own people with false intelligence reports when backstopping lies via a technique called “eyewash” [4], [5]

“Craig Murray has publicly supported the Al Jazeera documentary, “Lockerbie: What Really Happened?” which concluded that the Lockerbie bombing was ordered by Iran and carried out by the PFLP-GC, with help from Hezbollah, and if Libya had a role, it was secondary. Murray blogged that “The information on Lockerbie published in today’s Daily Mail from an Iranian defector, matches precisely what I was shown in a secret intelligence report in the FCO just around the time of the first Iraq war. It was decided that this would be kept under wraps because the West needed Iran and Syria’s quiescence in the attack on Iraq”” -Wikispooks

Yo, Craig, wake-up call, your Iranian defector likely took MI6 script matching your own case of eyewash (backstopped the lie you’d been fed), the Pan Am 103 bombing easily should be a reprise of the murder of Dag Hammarskjold, only in this case was Britain and South Africa’s intelligence services execution of Bernt Carlsson who’d been preparing prosecution of Her Majesty’s government yellow cake trafficking [6], [7]

Does Her Majesty a favor with an eyewash blind spot = minus one point

And finally we have Stickyleaks…

“I took half an hour out yesterday from building the Doune the Rabbit Hole site to take part in a worldwide broadcast in support of Julian Assange. You can see me here on YouTube from 3 hours and 43 minutes in, though you may prefer to watch Slavoj Zizek who is on just before me ❤️❤️❤️

“The fact that I could broadcast video to people all over the world from a beautiful but remote field in the shadow of the Trossachs, via a mobile phone connection, is an example of just why the state and corporate media can no longer dominate the narrative with their propaganda. That is the main subject of my brief talk” craigmurray.org.uk July 2018 [8]

Ok, so Craig Murray, who has all but admitted he met with Seth Rich in the DNC leaks case (probably to verify the authenticity of the mails prior to Wikileaks paying cash to Rich, not to be the conduit) and possibly (very likely) as a surveilled  high profile associate of Wikileaks got Rich identified as the DNC source, causing Rich to be assassinated (a trained spook uses a cut out to prevent just this sort of scenario)…

murray_wikileaks-1

“I know who leaked them. I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things” -Craig Murray

…somehow doesn’t understand (cannot connect the dots) the fact Julian Assange was a critical gear in the intelligence agency (primarily CIA & MOSSAD) information operations responsible for the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ … leading to not only revolution and counter-revolution in Egypt but also the overthrow of Gaddafi and the Syrian ‘civil war.’ How does Craig Murray, when evangelizing with his perception of Assange as a hero, drive that square peg into the round hole of Wikileaks supported the intelligence agency geopolitical engineering called the Arab Spring? [9], [10], [11]

Failed basic espionage 101 by meeting directly with a Wikileaks source = minus one point

Doesn’t understand how organizations like Wikileaks serve intelligence agencies’ interests as in the case of the Arab Spring = minus one point

Narcissistic infatuation with Assange sans perspective, together with not interfered with in his electronic communications by intelligence agencies (allowed at youtube) because he’s actually not a threat as much as a manipulated stooge resulting in a limited hangout = minus one point:

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.

Going to this next, in the absence of accountability for billionaires playing with technological fire and tampering with reality in ways risking us all, I’d support a constitutional amendment allowing a bill of attainder authorizing the forever jailing of Elon Musk:

Bank of America - 1

This essay is perhaps best introduced as describing where you WILL NOT find leadership and why. It is in an American historical context with superimposed Native American derived story-telling format; where interrelated metadata is strung together in such a way as to challenge the American expression of the Western cultural assumptions. It will be best understood by (and deliberately presents a challenge to) those fairly competent in the American historical & social context. However this essay might also be of interest to those international readers wishing to explore any of several aspects of the American character development, especially in regards to blind spots and related denial.

On the politics of ‘hope’

“Hope springs eternal” is a cynicism in folk proverb form. Interestingly, in this reporter’s experience, the cynicism has been employed by persons ‘working fingers to the bone’ to right the USA ship of state against very long odds. In such regard, the expression can be seen as a self-lampoon, based on principled action; where one’s devotion to pursue what is correct and honorable for the fact of any and all refusal to compromise ethics is at the core structure of one’s personal state. This person, although certainly not alone in such principled endeavor, is the exception, not the rule.

Insofar as another personality type, one that cynically exploits the ‘hope’ of simple, common people, that is the sociopath in what amounts to an intra-social predator-prey relationship, it is the ‘prey’ most needs examining where ‘leadership’ intersects in relation to “Hope.” This thought is predicated on the fact we have arrived at a place of mass manipulation of humanity on a never before seen scale of propaganda, where leaders are manufactured, whether for selling ‘hope’ or for purpose of color revolution (exploiting hope) inter alia.

“The tremendous expansion of communications in the United States has given this Nation the world’s most penetrating and effective apparatus for the transmission of ideas. Every resident is constantly exposed to the impact of our vast network of communications which reach every corner of the country, no matter how remote or isolated. Words hammer continually at the eyes and ears of America. The United States has become a small room in which a single whisper is magnified thousands of times” -Edward Bernays, ‘The Engineering of Consent’

From Johannes Guttenberg to Marconi to Microsoft Explorer, in just under 600 years, referencing ability to manipulate via a human trait the atheist Richard Dawkins has attempted to explain away as ‘memes’ (a phenomenal order of information sharing that cannot be separated from spirit), the sociopaths’ tools to manipulate have increased in power exponentially.

The most common ‘hope’ (of common people) is a misnomer; it should be better expressed as ‘desire’ that is neither particularly pecuniary nor malignant. It is the desire to have a simple, uncomplicated and meaningful life where one works and is rewarded with a sense of security, within which there should be many small satisfactions that is antithesis of personal empire or the many complications that come with reaching beyond the walls of one’s home and borders of one’s community. This hypothetical person had been (in the modern mythology) described as the ‘salt of the earth’ or it could be said the farmer, the miller, the baker… all respected in small neighborhood with few to none aspiring to affairs of state or sitting in any senate.

Then, the ‘dark side’ of literacy manifest; like a cosmic vomit of goo … ‘freedom’ insists a libertine (not libertarian) corporate neo-feudalism push the little peoples’ face into consumerism until spirit suffocates and all that is sensible seems beyond reach.

It begins with allure and infatuation; the idea “progress” is the inevitable state of humanity, and thus common people are sucked into the machine of mass media where they become consequent debt slaves in actuality, having taken the bait of self-improvement to one’s lot. Perhaps the most cynical example in history of the USA is Blacks persuaded to give up 40 acres and a mule to migrate North and work in a factory where, in a short, subsequent generation or two, capital abandoned those very factories and left these people high and dry, with no marketable skill, and self-sufficiency (personal sovereignty) a mere memory. It was only a short time preceding this event the market crash of 1857 had upended the lives of countless Whites who’d bought ‘the dream’ and their ‘hope’ seen reduced to a ‘great awakening’ that failed (other than to accelerate the economically displaced into involuntary props of “Manifest Destiny”) where a great meme or ‘hope’ inspired of despair was last seen in the Christian ‘revivals’ sweeping the Confederate armies.

Averaging something like seventy and some years, from the American Revolutionary War, to crash and the American Civil War, to crash and World War Two (American history cannot ‘own’ WWI), to impending crash and pending war to save empire, there is yet to be seen a true generation of ‘little people’ allowed fulfillment of any promise surrounding a ‘pursuit of happiness.’ In the end, everything is conscripted, repeatedly.

The opportunities for poisoning the populace via inventions of Guttenberg, Marconi and Microsoft cannot be counted but they can be quantified in a sense of social; simple people desiring only honest opportunity at uncomplicated pursuit of happiness are morphed, via imposed artificial expectations that are in turn exploited for fact of inevitable false result (predicated upon lies), and all of the associated implications, in circumstance where simple, gullible citizens become instinctively fearful for their future and many of these become numb or worse: the violently angry cynic. Behold the Tea Party and whatever will become of the liberal progressive movement repeatedly poisoned by the likes of Barack Obama’s ‘hope’, ‘the burn’ of Sanders and coming politically correct demands (deceits) of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

The ‘discovery’ of Dawkins’ (memes) had long been known already in human observation; and shortly (repeatedly) poisoned by Guttenberg’s invention, example given, Generals Lee & Jackson cynical manipulation of the religious tract for morale purpose (spurring on a false spirit or ‘great awakening’) in doomed armies that served little more than to ‘convert’ the Southern soldiers of the USA into a ‘Bible believing’ embittered and bigoted postbellum social atmosphere that became the ‘Jim Crow’ South.

If religion has been historically used to manipulate, there is small contrast when ‘The Enlightenment’ had served little more than to ensnare the common man in a self-deluded trap of personal freedom underwritten by fraud from its’ inception; no different to the farmer cannot be freed from rain, the miller cannot free himself from the farmer, the baker cannot be freed from the miller nor can the cottage industry be freed from the baker. Every living person in the Western culture imagining oneself independent (having failed consideration of these preceding) is exercising nothing more than what had been described in a 2,500 years past observation:

“Their judgment was based more upon blind wishing than upon any sound pre-vision; for it is a habit of mankind to entrust to careless hope what they long for, and to use sovereign reason to thrust aside what they do not fancy” -Thucydides

Leadership in time of crisis should not underestimate the evil humanity has subjected itself to. To be ‘disillusioned’ should be synonymous to disabused of false notions of ‘hope’ when looking forward to what is possible. The structure humankind has erected, particularly those adopting the Western model, is far removed from realistic understanding of what it means to depend on the rain. When the burden of this structure has reached point of crushing the shopkeeper, and one looks only to discover the shopkeepers support structure is gone missing, in circumstance where the community farmer, the miller and the baker are fast becoming relics of memory, intelligent dismantlement should be a radical focus (prior to collapse.) Without the spine of the community kept intact, and one cannot count on Syngenta & Monsanto to safeguard any one community’s economic sovereignty, let alone any nation’s national security, there is no spine because multinational corporations are not a backbone, rather these resemble an exoskeleton.

Leaders cannot be liars, they do not manipulate the common citizenry away from a healthy community interest and they do not conceal the reality. Religion does these things, whether the religions of science and the Enlightenment or, the Emperor of Rome’s religion of politics shaping Christianity into an instrument of state where the wisdom of the Christian culture’s historical Jesus is buried by the inventions of Paul, drawn from Greek paganism, or more properly, the blood sacrifice ‘mystery religions’ of that era. Jesus cannot save you but given attention, his authentic teachings (e.g. The Sermon on the Mount) can help people to save themselves.

Lastly, leadership in time of crisis is not to be drawn from the model that produced the crisis, that is a model of corporate sociopathy. If there is a true spirit will manifest in the so-called ‘age of liberty’ that had become the sociopaths’ media playground, it must be organic spirit fostering organic intelligence along the lines of a Native American proverb:

“Spirit puts it into the mind of a man, to know what to do”

Disabusing the people of ‘hope’, real leadership will send Guttenberg to hell when pointing community to intelligent dismantlement of existing structures in process of return to self-sufficiency; where endeavors beyond a backbone of rain-farmer-miller-baker-shopkeeper are ultimately unsustainable, particularly those foolhardy ‘pie-in-the-sky’ endeavors that dismantle the spine of a community.

We begin with the straw man (or men.) Finally it has come to a time of accepting the Western political leadership is, in and of itself, a criminal class and the model of democracy a criminal model. It’d be better to return to the drawing board in the human experiment concerning social governance, whether political or religious, because:

In any democracy, ethics, self restraint, tolerance and honesty will always take a second seat to narcissism, avarice, bigotry & persecution, if only because people who play by the rules in any democracy are at a disadvantage to those who easily subvert the rules to their own advantage (Ronald’s Maxim)

Straw man number one: Hate crime and people preserving ‘original sin’ as a cultural motif in the living oxymoron of deciding what is hate. Example in American Christian culture would be the ‘hate watchdog’ Southern Poverty Law Center doesn’t touch the neo-Platonic pederasty that is the Catholic church where theology holds women can never be priests for the proposed ‘fact’ of Eve seducing Adam on behalf of evil. That’s not a ‘hate crime’ ?

This only get better (worse, actually) in a culture incompatible with its pretensions; where Saul of Tarsus (a.k.a. St Paul) demands all of creation is dirtied by original sin and ruled by Satan. [1] Thusly what ‘Saint Paul’ taught (part & parcel of a mythology superimposed on the historical Jesus) [2] is allowed to be shoved in people’s faces across the planet (the ‘Great Commission’), where it is proposed if you don’t accept being “covered in the blood of Jesus” (because you are dirty) you will burn for eternity and this isn’t a hate crime? If St Paul wasn’t the first self-hating human, certainly he is among history’s greatest of self-hating humans and it should say a lot he is a driving icon motivating Mike Pompeo and Mike Pence. When it comes to these Christian Zionists empowering Israel’s miscreant geopolitical behaviors, Bibi Netanyahu is a petty criminal by comparison. There is no related hate crimes noticeable by the Southern Poverty Law Center in regards to Mike Pompeo stating:

“we make sure that we pray and stand and fight and make sure that we know that Jesus Christ is our savior is truly the only solution for our world” -Mike Pompeo

Yes truly, this is the only solution backed by the usual suspects of empire killing people across the globe … and if you don’t play their game (practice their murderous brand of Christianity) [3] you’re not among the ‘new chosen’ and undeserving of not only privilege but your life is lesser than what ‘goy’ is to the ‘original chosen.’ A ‘heads up’ for Phil Giraldi [4] the fact of sixty million American Zionist Christians (one in four Americans who identify as Christian) pushing for a ‘Greater Israel’ tells me ‘Jews are the problem’ is a straw man. [5] In fact historically it has been Jews, not Jesuits, working to preserve the American constitution and the USA’s (none the less failed) adherence to the rule of law. [6]

We can close the preceding bit on the Americans with an ‘honorable mention’ (that’s irony, for those readers with a thick noggin) awarded to the American Civil Liberties Union for defending American Nazi hate speech (with no problems from the Southern Poverty Law Center) and now we’ll move on to the ‘mental midget’ Macron and his ‘anti-Zionism’ is ‘anti-Semitism’ straw man. [7]

“Anti-Zionism is one of the modern forms of anti-Semitism. Behind the negation of Israel’s existence, what is hiding is the hatred of Jews” -Emmanuel Macron

Now, just wait one f**king minute. Anti-Zionism could be an irrational hatred of Rastafarians. Anti-Zionism could be a VERY HEALTHY opposition to the religious (and closet political) agenda of Mike Pompeo & Mike Pence and their cult motivated ‘end of days’ apocalyptic vision [8] set in the Middle East based on ‘Bible Prophecy’ … and related policies supporting the Israeli religious right stoking tensions throughout the region. Anti-Zionism could also be support for international law denying the illegal occupation and annexation of East Jerusalem and Golan (with the West Bank likely to follow) where the Israeli political right is motivated to sleight of hand territorial ambitions in pursuit of a ‘Greater Israel.’

Allowing Macron to define anti-Semitism per his preceding quote (straw man) would be to give Bibi Netanyahu and his über-right alliance cover for pursuit of the (patently illegal) Greater Israel; where as of February 2019 everyone who’d been identified as “Anti-Zionist” while opposing the Greater Israel project (but not Israel within its United Nations established borders) can now be smeared as anti-Semite. Perhaps few, if any, greater favors had been done for the criminal element in Jewish Zionism and the historical fraud of Ben Gurion, whose admitted disingenuous acceptance of Israel’s lawful borders were a means to an end: in a drive to establish Israel beyond its lawful boundaries. [9]

How is it Macron had suddenly decided to ‘gift’ the criminal element within Zionism a world class opportunity to smear that very criminal element’s enemies? The answer is obvious and straightforward; the Jesuit educated, anti-Semite Macron had ‘stepped on his dick’ (an American military expression) when he’d proposed to rehabilitate Vichy France leader (Nazi collaborator who ‘led’ France during the terror of Klaus Barbie) Marshal Petain [10] and set himself up for blackmail.

A consummate criminal politician of the Western stripe, the blackmailed Macron then performed political fellatio on some one certain actor (likely MOSSAD leapt at the opportunity) to save his career; and the President of the Fifth Republic has now defined the ultimately sane element in anti-Zionism as anti-Semitic.

As for the rest of the story, here is example of everything you need to know about threats MOSSAD is capable of carrying through, a straw-man, and what the Macron ‘legacy’ might have faced:

“Emmanuel Macron was found dead in his home after having sex with a scarecrow that he had dressed up in a wig, lipstick and strap-on sex toy.

“The molested remains of Macron’s scarecrow were discovered in his home after neighbours reported a foul smell coming from the building.

“Police forced their way into Macron’s private home in a Paris suburb, and were stunned to discover the 40-year-old politician lying dead.

“Next to him lay a scarecrow that had been dressed up as a woman – but wearing a strap-on sex toy.

“Bernard Bajolet, a spokesman for the prosecutor, said: “We initially thought there were two bodies but then realised one was a scarecrow wearing lipstick and a long-haired wig.

“It was lying next to the deceased and had a six-inch strap-on penis.

“There were no signs of violence and we are working on the assumption that Macron died during sex with his scarecrow” [11]

On Intimidation, Cowardice & Corruption
(at the International Criminal Court)

“Drill and uniforms impose an architecture on the crowd. An army’s beautiful. But that’s not all; it panders to lower instincts than the aesthetic. The spectacle of human beings reduced to automatism satisfies the lust for power. Looking at mechanized slaves, one fancies oneself a master” -Aldous Huxley

The United Nations is an experiment in democracy founded on the Western principles of international law. Angela Merkel’s conflating globalism with multilateralism (these are NOT the same thing) notwithstanding, the United Nations is a global body established by multilateral treaties. This does not establish ‘globalism’ but serves as a platform for facilitating relationships between sovereign nations. The International Criminal Court is example of this, where the ‘Rome Statute’ (the multilateral treaty establishing the court) had been ‘midwifed’ from within the UN but created a court (the ICC) that is ostensibly independent. However the UN Security Council may refer cases to the ICC, the UN has no authority over the court and no power to extend or curtail the courts jurisdiction, which is solely over those nations which had opted to enter into the treaty (Rome Statute) creating the court.

However, if the institutions of the United Nations are notoriously politicized and corrupt, and they most certainly are [1] it follows the UN’s closely aligned institutions might be expected to show similar symptoms.

We have recently seen these symptoms (read on) but it should be noted the ICC had been undermined from its inception, particularly by the USA in what appears on its face to have been a geo-strategic policy of fraudulent engagement of the Rome Statute process. In short, the USA participated in the setting up of the court but used its considerable influence to prevent the court adopting a principle of universal jurisdiction. With the court at its formation limited to jurisdiction over nations entering into the Rome Statute treaty, the USA would appear to have disingenuously joined the court (signed on) but never seriously pursued ratification (the legal necessity of a democratic nation’s parliamentary body affirming the state executive signature) and therefor never came under the court’s jurisdiction.

What had been created is a social oxymoron in actuality; a core body of nations (Europe, EU & NATO nations, particularly) determined never to self-prosecute but to use the prosecutorial vehicle provided by the Rome Statute as post-colonial geopolitical device aimed at African states in ongoing state of neocolonialism. Consequently the court has seen to the prosecutions of politicians from Congo, Kenya, Sudan and Ivory Coast but not the French role in Rwanda’s genocide or Paul Kagame, a USA darling:

“He’s [Kagame] actually gotten a free ride from the ICC despite all the evidence of his army creating, sponsoring militias in Congo since 2002. Militias sponsored by Kagame’s troops have plundered, killed civilians and recruited child soldiers in the Congo yet Kagame and his commanders have not been indicted by the ICC” [2], [3], [4]

Relevant to the French immunity (impunity), this raises a question concerning whether European states signatory to the Rome Statute, that is a “coalition of the willing” should have been liable for what amounts to a ‘crime against humanity’, or an estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 dead civilians having resulted due to infrastructure destruction (e.g. disease via water contamination), when Iraq had been invaded despite the invading states’ leaders (notably Tony Blair) knowing that invasion’s premise was false. Are the EU & NATO states’ accountability waived by the ICC?

It hardly seems a ‘crime of aggression’ need be adopted to hold states responsible for their acts where existing statutory law should be adequate.

This brings us to a recent case filed by this reporter points to corruption. For purpose of defining corruption in the case at hand, identified by the court’s filing reference ICC OTP-CR-295/18 [5] it is asserted (by this reporter) any case of acquiesce in the face of intimidation is a form of corruption, where cases are shelved as opposed to pursued in good faith. Recent example of this is demonstrated in the resignation of an ICC judge citing two instance where the ICC had been subject to threats or subverted. [6]

In the first instance, Turkey arrested an ICC judge with Turk nationality under the pretext of ties to Gulen, an excuse often used by the current Salafi leadership of Turkey to rid itself of principled Sufi members of Turkey’s civil service. [7] The UN Secretary General, rather than confront Turkey with a principled stance no UN member state will unilaterally set precedent with the removal of ICC judges, allowed the precedent to stand.

The other instance causing his resignation (mentioned by Judge Flugge) is the well publicized (policy) threats against the ICC by USA National Security Advisor, John Bolton, in his speech to the Federalist Society. [8]

According to Christopher Black, a longtime barrister working the several international tribunals, including the ICC, the USA plays strongly:

“First of all through key personnel they have placed in the ICC, for example the prosecutors, some judges who are willing to do what they want…

“A judge in my case was threatened by Americans working there that if certain passages in the judgement acquitting the general I was defending were not removed he would face physical problems. This is the type of gangsterism they use to get their way in these tribunals”

Also specific to the USA, at a separate tribunal, according to Black:

“Not only was a judge in my case at the Rwanda tribunal pressured but I myself was threatened by the CIA while I was there to stop raising questions and presenting evidence they [the US side] did not like” [9]

The preceding suggests Turkey may have arrested the judge with Turkish nationality as a quid pro quo on behalf of a 3rd party to dispense with a judge perceived as a threat. In any case it’s clear the ICC is compromised.

Bearing the preceding in mind, in the case filed by this reporter, to begin it should be noted it was the ICC itself invited my filing, when the Office of the Prosecutor had responded, on 3 July 2018, to a letter I’d emailed to a German international law attorney on, 30 June 2018, copied to the ICC.

In both the letter and the complaint a clear line of evidence had been provided pointing to Turkey had (false-flag attack, in league with al Qaida) arranged the indiscriminate murder of well over 1,000 civilians at Ghouta, Syria in August of 2013. According to a Turkish parliamentarian, Eren Erdem, citing Turkish state produced investigative files in his possession, the chemicals used to produce the Sarin gas in this attack had been sourced in Europe. Turkish MP Erdem is on record stating:

“All basic materials are purchased from Europe. Western institutions should question themselves about these relations. Western sources know very well who carried out the sarin gas attack in Syria. They know these people, they know who these people are working with, they know that these people are working for Al-Qaeda. [What] I think is Westerns are hypocrites about the situation”

In this regard it is noted the court’s Office of the Prosecutor takes on the responsibility of assembling evidence:

“At the ICC, most evidence is collected and secured by the Office of the Prosecutor (OTP)” [10]

In the present case (ICC OTP-CR-295/18) the filing party (Ronald Thomas West) had assembled ample evidence to justify initiating a preliminary investigation that should have triggered the court looking into whether there had been the associated crime of ‘aiding and abetting’ committed within ICC jurisdiction. To bolster this, the case had been made an additional, associated crime of aiding and abetting had been demonstrated where German intelligence had misinformed German politicians of the facts actually surrounding the Ghouta sarin attack, so far as to blame Assad.

This last (immediate preceding) would not necessarily constitute a prosecutable crime (depending on what the judges might be inclined to believe on a given day) but there is more. This reporter had provided the necessary evidence to the concerned politicians correcting the record; indisputable evidence Turkey’s intelligence agency was providing sarin to al-Qaida militants within a timeline consistent with the Ghouta attack. [11]

This evidence submitted to the German executive (office of the Federal Prosecutor) and oversight (parliamentary leadership of all parties represented in the federal parliament) was never acted on; the German political establishment closed ranks across the political spectrum to deny the government of Syria honest assessment of the Ghouta attack. The false-flag crime accordingly sustained as a successful political ploy in regime change endeavors by EU and NATO states where those very states have become complicit in aiding and abetting a war crime with the act of material concealment of the actual perpetrators identity (a NATO state.) [12]

The German politicians (and related institutions) had been provided with the evidence on 2 December 2015. By the time this (very same) evidence had been provided to the ICC in a formalized complaint on 4 July 2018, thirty one months had passed without action by the Germans, satisfying the requirement Germany should have had opportunity to redress the wrong.

On 6 February 2019, one week after the resignation of Judge Christoph Flugge, the ICC Office of the Prosecutor replied to this reporter with:

“The Office of the Prosecutor has examined your communication and has determined that more detailed information would be required in order to proceed with an analysis of whether the allegations could fall within the jurisdiction of the Court. The Prosecutor has determined that, in the absence of such information, there is not a basis at this time to proceed with further analysis”

Essentially what the ICC has done is, to shelve the case with a demand this reporter who’d made the filing (at their invitation) provide information beyond simple and clear evidence aiding and abetting of a war crime is ongoing by a state within the jurisdiction of the court. This general, non-specific language, in the common vernacular, are called ‘weasel words.’

Why? Clearly the ramifications of adopting the practice of prosecuting the politicians empowering false flag geopolitical engineering by intelligence agencies is frightening and no doubt opposed by politician & spy alike.

Were the ICC to proceed in this case (whether it were a successful prosecution or acquittal), not only would it likely topple Angela Merkel, but it likely brings into reach Davis Cameron and his spy chief Alex Younger, also Francois Hollande and his spy chief Bernard Bajolet… and so on.

In the case of Germany, there is a safe assumption: There will be no prosecution of these crimes due to a German constitutional loophole larger than the Brandenberg Gate … “for the good of the state.” Because at the end of the day, it is (a commonly used German expression) “just not possible” to rock the boat with Turkey or cross the USA.

Why the International Criminal Court matters (in the present moment) has little to do with justice and much to do with exposing the corruption of foundational principles across the spectrum of international institutions.

*

The ICC had been provided a nearly identical draft of this (preceding) with opportunity to comment. [13] Prior to releasing this for initial publication at the Ft Russ news website, two weeks have passed and no reply has been forthcoming. The ICC also declined to clarify the nature of “more detailed information [that] would be required” and has remained silent on my asking whether the German authorities had been contacted with request for information and if so, the nature of any reply.

Noteworthy is the ICC does not deny the “allegations” (the evidence is too strong) nor does the ICC altogether dismiss the possibility of jurisdiction (they have jurisdiction over complicit parties within the EU, only are either intimidated and afraid or too corrupted to exercise it, probably a combination) rather finds a ‘weasel words’ excuse to shelve a case that would call out the hypocrisy of the European signatories to the Rome Statute based on the criminality of the EU/NATO intelligence agencies.

The net result is, as of this moment the false-flag sarin attack at Ghouta, Syria (and murder of well over 1,000 innocents) during the month of August 2013 remains a successful sleight-of-hand attack blamed on the wrong party and the crime of aiding and abetting the perpetrators, it could be argued, extends to the International Criminal Court itself, in case where refusal to correct the public record protects the guilty parties. I would describe this as ‘international criminal complicity’ when a UN associated judicial body becomes aware of an easily rectified element of a major war crime, as simple as recognizing an evidence based false-flag, and instead chooses to sit on its hands.

The pity of it all is, if there were courage to pursue jurisdiction over those complicit parties within the Rome Statute’s signatory states, a precedent would be established perhaps leading (over time) to further precedent where anyone complicit in war crimes and crimes against humanity could be arrested when stepping on any Rome Statute nation’s soil and progress made in realizing accountability.

[13] copy of this post & relevant questions requesting information were sent to the ICC on 9 February 2019

“The Palestinian Arab leadership rejected partition as unacceptable, given the inequality in the proposed population exchange and the transfer of one-third of Palestine, including most of its best agricultural land, to recent immigrants. The Jewish leaders, Chaim Weizmann and David Ben-Gurion, persuaded the Zionist Congress to lend provisional approval to the Peel recommendations as a basis for further negotiations. In a letter to his son in October 1937, Ben-Gurion explained that partition would be a first step to “possession of the land as a whole.” The same sentiment, that acceptance of partition was a temporary measure beyond which the Palestine would be “redeemed . . in its entirety” was recorded by Ben-Gurion on other occasions, such as at a meeting of the Jewish Agency executive in June 1938, as well as by Chaim Weizmann” [1]

It was the “Peel recommendations” eventually morphed into United Nations Resolution 181(II), creating the state of Israel. Noteworthy is the Israeli founders’ disingenuous acceptance of borders when acquiring statehood.

This exercise of patent fraud on Ben Gurion & Weizmann’s part might be tempered by exam of consequent ‘questionable right’ of Israel to exist. In light of this, as previously stated by this author, the United Nations is a far from perfect entity, necessarily flawed from circumstance of birth:

“However sincere certain statesmen might have been in creating the United Nations and associated international law of the present era, flaws were inevitable in the mold at casting; the ideological contest between East and West, the naivety of non-Western, especially non-European, nation-states in matters of the Western conceived international law…” [2]

In today’s geopolitical climate, the UN possibly most resembles the post-Tito, but pre-implosion Yugoslavia, with a Security Council polarized and pulling in irreconcilable directions similar to the rotating presidency that had been a failed successor to the man who’d held mutually antagonistic nations (especially Croatia & Serbia, or Catholicism vs Orthodoxy) together with the force of his personality. As time has passed in a disintegrating social fabric across the world, leadership capable of holding a multi-national state together with leadership qualities appears increasingly rare. In the larger case of the United Nations, currently gridlocked due to competing visions of the future at the Security Council, perhaps more often than any other issue, at the nexus of this circumstance is the state of Israel.

It is combined social and cultural psychology demands (or drives) the Jewish state towards a ‘Greater Israel.’ This demand is embedded in the mythology of history where ‘Samaria’ and ‘Judea’ are, at one time or another in ancient past linked, aligned with, or integrated to the historical Kingdom of Israel, having little to do with the fact of modern Israel.

According to the Oxford:

Samaria |səˈme(ə)rēə|
1 an ancient city in central Palestine, founded in the 9th century bc as the capital of the northern Hebrew kingdom of Israel. The ancient site is situated in the modern West Bank, northwest of Nablus.
2 the region of ancient Palestine around Samaria, between Galilee in the north and Judaea in the south.

Judaea |jo͝oˈdēə, -ˈdāə|
the southern part of ancient Palestine that corresponds to the former kingdom of Judah.

This next affirms Ben Gurion and subsequently Israeli duplicity:

roman_judea-jpg-1

“The term Judea as a geographical term was revived by the Israeli government in the 20th century as part of the Israeli administrative district name Judea and Samaria Area for the territory generally referred to as the West Bank” [3]

A state does not give the names of one’s historical mythology to an area except that state intends to assert sovereignty over the same. Prior to this, Judea had last been the name of the area under Hadrian’s rule, changed after the era of Agrippa II, the last Roman approved ‘Herodian’, or ‘titular’ king of the Jews, who were NOT a sovereign people.

If there were Jews who were enslaved by, or fled Roman rule, there were many, many more who stayed in what was no longer ‘Judea’ but what became Roman ruled Palaestina, renamed by the Roman Emperor Hadrian. Where are those ancient Jewish people’s descendants today? They’re in Palestine and they’re called Palestinians. [4] The inconvenience for the modern Ashkenazi and associated ‘historic’ claim to a Jewish state is, most of these indigenous people had, with passing time, converted to Islam. Any ‘Jewish’ right, claim and/or title to a geographic state of Israel prior to the creation of the UN would have traced (and ultimately become extinguished) through the Palestinian people. In the pre-United Nations ‘customary’ international law, there is no title (sense of sovereign) survived that could be described as ‘Israeli.’ The uniqueness of Israel is, it had been created by a new incarnation of international law, that is the United Nations.

It follows, any rational inquiry concerning Israel’s right to exist must be examined in a context different to the sovereign title of those nations established prior to the United Nations’ founding charter or, the right of Israel to exist can only be explored within the framework of the UN.

Insofar as those states holding Israel is an ‘illegitimate’ state, it would not require formal relations with Israel to confer legitimacy; in fact recognition of Israel by the disputing states is implicit by the very fact of those states opposed to Israel having joined and belonging to the United Nations; where in fact Israel is a UN creation. Disputing Israel is in fact disputing the United Nations; where international law should not provide for an oxymoron of belonging to the body which had created Israel and disputing Israel’s right to exist, these are mutually exclusive proposals. You cannot belong to the one and deny the other. The actual debate should be, if the UN can confer legitimacy on a state of its own creation, can it ‘uncreate’ that state?

If such a debate were to ensue, the fraudulent aspect of Israel’s founders in relation to borders should open the conversation, followed on with analysis of subsequent behavior. Do the policies of Israel reflect the admitted fraud?

But opening this conversation at the United Nations could be a self-inflicted multiple Swords of Damocles in environment of corrupt intrigues where the interests of ‘peoples’ are suborned away by the petty arrogance of those who would presume to rule us. Israel is certainly not the only state in circumstance of abusing indigenous populace and encroaching borders while sleeping with Salafi militants. For instance, one is reminded the dreams of the Ottoman die hard. All of this is internationally influenced behavior attended by blackmail & bribes subject to possible public purview within any UN debate.

Complicating this proposed debate in already compromised environment, particularly relating to Israel, would be the frailties of the modern human psychology and attending nuclear armed Zionism, especially the irrational Zionism of an apocalyptic Christian persuasion perhaps best illustrated where behaviorism determines with simple example:

“You can’t convince a chimpanzee to give you a banana with the promise it will get 20 more bananas in chimpanzee heaven. It won’t do it. But humans will” -Yuval Noah Harari

In this case it should be noted, at the creation of the United Nations, the many joining states were binding themselves to a western standard of international law within a newly created, quasi-republican order remarkable for the granting of what amounts to plenipotentiary rule to the handful of powers making up the ‘permanent’ membership of the Security Council.

In this circumstance enforcement of United Nations resolutions require consensus relating to Israel that is actually impossible to arrive at. If the net outcome is a rogue state refusing to honor its granted borders; shielded from consequence of its aggression; in a duplicitous drive for a Greater Israel; not only allowed to perpetrate fraud as result of Security Council gridlock but in fact is protected by one or several of the member parties, the natural follow on subject to explore should be whether the United Nations is outlived its promise, and in that case, moving forward, what is to be done.

Perhaps Israeli geopolitical malfeasance is a symptom, not the disease.
