Why you should fear the Fourth Reich

Why you should fear the Fourth Reich

by Don Hank

Recently, in a mass email to friends, I referred to the Merkel regime as the Fourth Reich, and this raised eyebrows. One said “surely you can’t compare today’s Germany with the Third Reich?” My response was as follows:

My ancestors were all Germans. On at least my Dad’s side, they had been banished from their homeland by the Lutherans, who tortured, murdered and banished all persons openly professing Anabaptist beliefs.

 

I majored in German in college and studied the language in a Junior year abroad program in Marburg an der Lahn, West Germany, in 1963-4. Why does today’s German government remind me of the Nazis, based on my experiences and knowledge of the Germans?

A German playwright named Carl Zuckmeyer saw something in the German character that troubled him. He saw that most Germans were mesmerized by authority, eg, military uniforms. He wrote about this disturbing feature and in 1930, his tragicomic play, The Captain of Köpenick, was published.

Here is a short intro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A912lD1xpy. This intro is followed by a movie version with English subtitles, which I suggest you take the time to view. I was assigned to read this play in the original German and found it fascinating because I had seen these very traits in people all around me during my year abroad.

Of course, if I were to say these things in public in today’s Germany, I would be at risk of arrest. And that feature of German government, largely accepted by the public, reinforces the description of their national character.

Hitler collaborated with the Muslims, like the Grand Mufti and Yugoslav Muslims, to kill Jews. Today’s Germany still collaborates with Muslims, inviting hordes of them to Europe, and they are destroying European culture and creating an existential crisis, including the killing of European Jews in France, eg, in a famous massacre at a Kosher grocery store in Paris last year but also in a famous massacre at a Jewish school.

The Third Reich had laws banning certain kinds of speech. In today’s Germany, there is a jail sentence provided for people who say the “wrong” things in public. For example, the well-known official story is that Hitler killed 6 million Jews. Anyone who says in public in Germany that he killed less than that number, can go to jail. Several authors, even non-Germans, have been jailed for writing books that counter the official view. I do not agree with these authors, but if you jail people for saying something instead of debating with them, then that suggests to the public that you do not have cogent arguments or are not intelligent enough to defend your views. It certainly reflects an authoritarian behavior and the fact that the Germans accept this reflects the sheeplike traits that Carl Zuckmeyer expressed in his play, as described below and in the linked film. In addition to Holocaust denial, you can go to jail or pay a fine for insulting someone or for inciting ethnic violence. In other words, if you don’t agree with Mohammed’s theology (and I do not), then you are not free to say so or explain why in Germany – a “free world” country.

It was Merkel’s government that condemned EU countries that refused — for reasons of public security — to take in countless “refugees” even though security officials have stated that there are almost certainly terrorist sleeper cells hidden among them. She tried to enact laws via the EU that would punish these countries for refusing to put their citizens at risk. The Germans generally went along with her idea but other nations balked. This was the beginning of what is now a growing rift in the EU. It will not heal until finally the whole rotten system collapses.

BTW, Merkel had sent millions of euros to support the Arab Spring that saw foreign fighters come illegally to Syria in an attempt to oust Assad. Now, instead of accepting the refugee flood that Merkel and her partners in Washington created, the proper thing to do would be to fight ISIS and other terror groups such as Al-Qaeda (currently called Al-Nusra, but it is the same group that knocked down the WTC on 911). Instead, she and her Atlanticist partners in crime (eg, John McCain) support Al-Nusra with arms and training and want to defeat the Russians, the only world power that sincerely fights ISIS and Al-Nusra terror and protects Christians and other minorities in Syria. If the West accepted responsibility for its evil actions and helped Russia clear ISIS out of Syria, it could invest, jointly with Russia and others, in Syrian infrastructure and resources and provide jobs and safety to the Syrian people, who would then have no reason to migrate to Europe.

And then, there is the matter of foreign policy. The “free” country of Germany has sided with the authoritarian Turkish president Erdogan against Russia and Syria. She, like the Washington government, has a visceral suspicion of all things Russian and, like our government, finds it intolerable that Russia refuses to kowtow to the West. Though no one admits it, this is racism pure and simple, a reflection of the previous Reich, though directed at a different group – although Hitler irrationally thought the Slavs – to whom, ironically, he lost his army – were inferior.

Before the illegal coup that destroyed Ukraine, German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier travelled to the Maidan to encourage Kiev to illegally and violently overthrow a regime that was friendly to Russia. During that time, he, along with US activists like John McCain, posed for photo-ops with activists having fascist associations, as described by Rodney Atkinson:

“Steinmeier, who recently said that eurosceptics and those nations who sought democratic self government were “a danger to peace in Europe,” was pleased to meet the leader of an extreme nationalistic and fascist party Oleh Tiahnybok with whom “Germany’s man”, Klitschko has been pleased to collaborate.” [my bolding—Don]

Recently, Berlin announced joint military drills with the troops of Turkey’s aspiring Muslim dictator Erdogan, who is known to be supporting ISIS. Of course, now that the Turkish government has seen another massacre and has attributed it to ISIS, we are supposed to believe that suddenly, the Turks are on our side.

However, if you believe the msm and Erdogan, namely, that the attacks were perpetrated by ISIS, then you must read an earlier report of mine showing that ISIS invariably claims responsibility for its attacks within one day and often the same day as the attack, as shown here http://laiglesforum.com/isis-always-claim-responsibility-except-in-turkey/3734.htm. In this latest Turkish attack, ISIS did not claim responsibility. Possible suspects include Kurdish separatists and the Turkish secret service.

At any rate, it is highly unlilkely ISIS was responsible. After all, you should know by now that Erdogan routinely sends ISIS fighters across his border into Syria and his son has bought oil stolen by ISIS from the Syrian people (see: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-11-25/meet-man-who-funds-isis-bilal-erdogan-son-turkeys-president). After all, claiming responsibility is a form of advertising for ISIS. They are not about to let a good propaganda moment go to waste. Indeed, they often claim responsibility for attacks that they themselves did not plan, like the recent lone wolf attack in Orlando. So why wouldn’t they claim responsibility in Turkey? I think this is best explained by the hypothesis that Erdogan and the attackers are on the same side. Of course, CIA chief John Brennan, a Muslim, supports Turkey’s claim that it was ISIS, claiming that it has their earmarks – sure, John, the devious Turkish dictator would not be capable of imitating ISIS, would he? He also admits that ISIS rarely takes credit for attacks in Turkey. He doesn’t say why. There can be no rational explanation – unless you accept the proposition that Erdogan is lying and that ISIS did not perpetrate the attack.

It is clear to me that the reason Merkel has taken Erdogan’s side is that he has her blackmailed with the “refugees,” housed within his borders. He has on one occasion threatened to put refugees on busses and send them to Europe if she does not comply with a certain demand. If the West were in the hands of sane and rational people, Turkey would be ousted from NATO and sanctioned.

But the harsh fact of the matter is that Erdogan owns Merkel like the Saudis own the US government, as I showed here: http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/hank/150314.

And that is a very dangerous situation. We should never believe that once a war has been fought and won, the ingredients that went into brewing that war are now cleared away. Of course, no one is saying that the Germans are going to start throwing Jews into ovens. But siding with Muslim radicals and letting them wreak havoc all over Europe, and then aiding the higher powers that created and foster the terror groups responsible for the havoc (the Saudis and Turkey in this case), is a really bad sign. So is the strong German support for the dictatorial (and collapsing) EU, whose unelected EU Commission is the only agency that is allowed to propose legislation, and which overrides all national laws, reducing the individual states to mere vassals.

Nonetheless, I would be remiss to apply the term “Fourth Reich” only to the German nation. The term applies to the Atlanticist empire as a whole.

Declassified document shows Obama DID know he was creating ISIS

Declassified document proves Obama DID know he was creating ISIS

 

by Don Hank

A recent column appearing at zerohedge.com confirmed that a tweet by Donald Trump hinting that Obama knew he was creating a terror group when he sent arms to “rebels” in Syria was on the money.

 

QUOTE:

The tweet included a link to this story that appeared on Breitbart: an account of a 2012  intelligence report from the Defense Intelligence Agency predicting the rise of the Islamic State in Syria – and showing how US policy deliberately ignored and even succored it. Secured by Judicial Watch thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, the document says it’s very likely we’ll see the creation of “an Islamic State through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria.” And this won’t just be a grassroots effort, but the result of a centrally coordinated plan: it will happen because “Western countries, the Gulf states and Turkey are supporting these efforts” by Syrian “opposition forces” then engaged in a campaign to “control the eastern areas (Hasaka and Der Zor) adjacent to Western Iraqi provinces (Mosul and Anbar).”

 

The author reminds us that “Western countries” includes the US.

Whether Obama and Hillary are Muslims or not is hardly the issue here. They are an important part of the Saudi Rat Pack (SRP) and that is all we need to know. If there were any justice in our country, they would both hang for treason.

BTW, a lot of hullabaloo is made over the “evil Muslims,” and Christians are some of the most vociferous in condemning all Muslims for what the Saudi Rat Pack does. I agree that Islam is not the religion of peace and that Mo was basically a fraud.

However, I have interacted with Muslims lately and am getting a much more-nuanced impression of things.

Two anecdotal pieces of evidence:

I attended a local English-speaking church on Easter Sunday here in Panama, and after the service they offered free food in the church basement. We sat at a table with a guy who turned out to be Indonesian, a really nice, respectful guy who had taken part in the service. When he told us where he was from, I said aren’t you folks Muslims? He smiled and said they were. My family and I gathered that he was admitting that he was a Muslim, and for me that was no surprise. I had lived in Asia for over 3 years and had made friends and acquaintances there. I learned early that Southern Asians are open to various religions and can confess more than one religion. In fact, the Buddhists believe that there are 5 great religions and Christianity is one of them. They deeply respect Christianity. Sounds insane to most Westerners, but that is how they are.

So I told the young Indonesian Muslim church goer that I had understood that Indonesian Muslims are different from their Middle Eastern brothers. He was quick to let me know that his countrymen want nothing to do with the Saudi violence and intolerance. He was definitely sincerely incensed about this and about the fact that people might mistakenly think his countrymen might largely sympathize with radical Islam. He said there was only one small region in Indonesia where the Muslims were radical like the Saudis.

The next piece of evidence came in today. I was seated in a lounge area of a large department store waiting for my wife and daughter to finish spending their money and noticed a gent sitting beside me who was looking about as bored as me and we struck up a conversation. He turned out to be an Albanian, one of 2 diplomats opening an embassy in Panama, and he had lived in Kosovo. Many of you know that I have written a piece on Kosovo, mostly a translation about the horrors that Serbs face there. He did not deny that this had happened in the past but said that the Serbs had really abused the Albanians for years. He pointed out that over 100 years ago, Serbia had tried to illegally annex Albanian territory. I told him I didn’t think any of that justified mistreating Serbs in Kosovo, but I saw he was not to be persuaded, so I decided to change the subject a bit and told him I had heard that the Saudis had sent money to Kosovo after the war was over.

He said that Kosovars do not like Saudi interference and that he knew they were causing trouble in Kosovo.

I was shocked to hear that he and I could agree that the Saudis were behind much of the mischief in the Middle East. In fact, he was clearly disgusted by it. He insisted that no one wants terrorism (meaning Muslims) and he sounded sincere.

Clearly the Islamic world is not a monolith and we owe it to ourselves to learn from individuals like my Indonesian and Albanian friends.

I had noticed a while back that there are certain groups of people who want us to believe that Muslims are all cookie cutter copies of each other, and what I noticed about these folks is important, so please pay attention:

These folks who want us to hate ALL Muslims are by and large Neocons. Now why would the Neocons want Americans to simply hate all Muslims and not just terrorists and potential terrorists?

I cannot say for certain, but I suspect that this is because it is easier to convince Americans of the righteousness of a misguided military action by the Pentagon if the target audience of the war propaganda is a bunch of cattle who accept the notion that all Muslims are equally evil and represent an unnuanced homogeneous group. They could use this excuse to take out any leader, such as Ghadaffi, Mubarak, Saddam, and of course, Assad.

I strongly suspect this slyly implanted idea that all Muslims are evil is what is motivating many Americans to support US military engagements that, without the blanket hatred of all Muslims, would make no sense. Indeed, I have read opinions critical of Assad based on the fact that he is a Muslim and therefore is evil and not worthy of consideration. The people who expressed this opinion did not seem to care that if the US takes him out, he will be replaced by ISIS. To them there is no difference between ISIS and Assad. They are tragically wrong. Assad belongs to a subgroup of Shia Islam that is almost perfectly tolerant of other religions. Despite whatever sins he may be guilty of, he is the perfect choice for protection of minorities and has done an amazing job of creating a tolerant society in Syria. Only the made-in-USA terror groups like Al-Nusra and ISIS have changed this situation and turned groups against each other who once had learned to tolerate each other under the leadership of Assad.

I do not suspect that Trump will use hatred and suspicion of Muslims to such an untoward end. I think he was just shooting from the hip when he said we need to stop the immigration of Muslims until we can figure out what is going on.

But Hillary is another story.

Meanwhile my Albanian acquaintance was surprisingly open minded about Trump and said that Trump no doubt was not referring to all Muslims but only to people from terror-exporting countries. He said that if Trump became president Albanians would support him, but that likewise they would support Hillary if she won the presidency because her husband Bill had “helped” the Albanians in Kosovo. In other words, contrary to the doomsday warnings of both liberals and GOP higher-ups, Trump would not destroy the US’s rapport with all Muslim countries but may only sully the most radical ones, like Saudi Arabia, which is in fact the enemy of the American people and does not deserve to be coddled.

I also told him I thought Kosovo had become more unstable after the war and that NATO was just indiscriminately killing people.

Incredibly, while he disagreed on the first point, he seemed to agree that NATO was just having itself a rowdy shooting match in Kosovo!

Finally, he told me that Kosovo and Albania saved the lives of many Jews in those places. Here is that story confirmed by the Jewish Post http://www.jewishpost.com/news/Why-Albania-A-Nation-of-Muslims-Christians-Saved-Every-Jew.html.

The world is a big place and there are all sorts of nuances that we are best served to examine and try to understand. More-precise knowledge of groups of people can help both avoid unnecessary military intervention and/or make sure the groups targeted by the Pentagon and/or the State Department really are enemies and not in fact friends or potential friends of We the People. We really ought to have noticed by now that groups or nations that Washington declares to be enemies routinely turn out to be friends and vice-versa and that overly strident propaganda against anyone is generally an excuse for a needless war.

I am only just beginning to understand the Muslim world but God has allowed me to make just the kind of contacts that are helping me fill in the blanks.

 

Prevent nuclear war: Stop Hillary

Stop Hillary and prevent nuclear war

 

by Don Hank

An article recently appeared in a blog operated by an independent intel analyst who is particularly knowledgeable about Russian military hardware.  The article is co-authored by 3 experts and is a warning of the threat of a war with Russia that would be triggered not by the Russians but by the West. I urge you to read it here: http://thesaker.is/a-russian-warning/

QUOTE:

We are absolutely and categorically certain that Russia will never attack the US, nor any EU member state, that Russia is not at all interested in recreating the USSR, and that there is no “Russian threat” or “Russian aggression.” Much of Russia’s recent economic success has a lot to do with the shedding of former Soviet dependencies, allowing her to pursue a “Russia first” policy. But we are just as certain that if Russia is attacked, or even threatened with attack, she will not back down, and that the Russian leadership will not “blink.” With great sadness and a heavy heart they will do their sworn duty and unleash a nuclear barrage from which the United States will never recover. Even if the entire Russian leadership is killed in a first strike, the so-called “Dead Hand” (the “Perimetr” system) will automatically launch enough nukes to wipe the USA off the political map. We feel that it is our duty to do all we can to prevent such a catastrophe.

As you can see, this article is not a warning from Putin, the Kremlin or any other government agency. It comes from individuals who are watching in fear as the US government does its best to antagonize and provoked Russia into a war. These are certified crazies and they have infested the US government like maggots. Bill Kristol, the son of Irving Kristol, dubbed the “godfather of the Neoconservative movement,” is one of them. Recently Donald Trump called Kristol a loser for trying to start a third party that would risk ushering Hillary Clinton into the White House. He said in a public address that Kristol only wants to “kill people.” That is precisely the case. But the Neoconservative are desperately attempting to start a new third party to preserve the tradition of waging perpetual wars that it invariably loses (because they are fought on behalf of the Saudis, for the clandestine purpose of spreading Wahhabism in exchange for the Saudis’ propping up an increasingly worthless dollar, as I have shown here). This desperation on the part of the Neocons means several things:

1–Neoconservatism, whose sole platform has become maintaining US dominance at all costs, up to and including nuclear annihilation of the planet, is now running wild even in the Democrat party. Hillary has been identified as the arch-Neocon. She even said that US support for terror groups like ISIS is “a good thing.”

2–Neocons, which include Kristol and faux conservative Glenn Beck, are not conservatives, quite the opposite, despite their pious pronouncements about the sacredness of the Constitution. Anyone willing to give the election to Hillary cannot be called a conservative. NO Neocon is a conservative, but they pose as such, taking up minor causes that make them seem Christian and defenders of the Constitution. But the main cause for America is not the ones identified by the false conservatives. It is ending the constant push to war that only supports the Saudis and their deadly Wahhabi sect (the sect that created ISIS), as shown here  and threatens the planet by antagonizing Russia and China, pushing all their psychological hot buttons (eg, by supporting a quasi-fascist government in Ukraine and building up NATO forces all along the Russian border, despite the fact that James Baker had solemnly promised Gorbachev that this would never happen).

Finally, let me point out that no expert of any political stripe ever presents the whole picture when writing about war with Russia. I have said this before but must repeat because no analyst has as yet picked up this vital detail:

The idea of war with Russia is mythical. There can be no such thing. A war against Russia would automatically evolve into a war with Russia and China both. And china, has said, as I reported here, that it can instantly wipe out the entire US. The only fear for citizens of the West, however, is that the US will continue to antagonize and provoke both of these world powers.

The most dangerous place in the world at this time is therefore Washington, DC.

New details on US-Saudi deal suggest Washington supporting terrorist regime

New details of US-Saudi deal suggest Washington supports terror

 

by Don Hank

Bloomberg recently exposed the storykept under wraps for over 40 yearsof the US-Saudi petrodollar agreement under which the US agreed to use its military to protect the Saudi family in exchange for the Saudis’ demanding US dollars as payment for oil and buying US Treasuries. The US officials who disclosed this story said that King Faisal insisted the deal should be kept secret because anti-US sentiment in the Middle East was running high due to US support for the Yom Kippur War.

The fact that the Saudis insisted on secrecy in this petrodollar deal suggests that there may well still be secrets yet to be revealed.

Considering that all US involvement in wars and US support for government coups outside the Western Hemisphere since 1974 greatly benefitted the Saudis and harmed the US people (Saudi support for terror, trillions of dollars spent on wars all supporting Sunni Islamization), it is highly likely that part of this agreement – certainly an unwritten part – called for the US indirectly to help spread Wahhabism everywhere. Because this is exactly what the US government did in its foreign and military policy for over 40 years. Don’t tell me it was all a coincidence!

Recap:

GW Bush covered up Saudi complicity in the 2001 terror attacks on the Twin Towers, as reported here.

QUOTE:

Case agents I’ve interviewed at the Joint Terrorism Task Forces in Washington and San Diego, the forward operating base for some of the Saudi hijackers, as well as detectives at the Fairfax County (Va.) Police Department who also investigated several 9/11 leads, say virtually every road led back to the Saudi Embassy in Washington, as well as the Saudi Consulate in Los Angeles.

Yet time and time again, they were called off from pursuing leads. A common excuse was “diplomatic immunity.”

Bush’s Iraqi war ended up with the Assyrian Christians leaving the country in droves. They had survived 2000 years of persecution but finally succumbed to the US-Saudi-led war that installed their enemies in power. The Saudis aim to eliminate Christianity from all predominantly Muslim regions. Hence, it was a Saudi win, but, like all US military engagements outside the Western hemisphere, it was at the same time a devastating loss – in terms of money, morale and security – for the once-Christian US.

The US-led war in Kosovo converted this cradle of Serbian Christianity into an exclusively Muslim domain, where the last Christian residents, who had spent their lives there since infancy, were mercilessly persecuted and almost all Christian monuments, such as cemeteries and churches, were, and are still being, destroyed and desecrated (http://laiglesforum.com/look-whats-happening-in-the-european-region-that-nato-defended/3786.htm). Again, this debacle was a clear-cut loss for the US people but a resounding victory in terms of Saudi goals. Indeed, Saudi money was reported to have “flooded Kosovo” after the war.

US Support for the Egyptian spring was apparently motivated by a desire to establish the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood in that country in compliance with Saudi wishes. I say that because there is no way that US officials could have expected democracy to bloom in that hotbed of  Islamic fanaticism. It succeeded under Mursi until he was ousted by Al Sisi. During Mursi’s reign, Christians were persecuted. A Christian Egyptian lady I know told me her husband had traveled back to Egypt during the Mursi regime and when they asked him where he intended to visit, and he mentioned the name of a predominantly Christain town, he was unceremoniously put on the next flight back to the US. At the time of this telling, they had never learned the fate of his family. As stated above, the Saudis aim to eliminate Christianity from all predominantly Muslim regions. A major US loss, a resounding victory in terms of Saudi goals – until the Egyptian military stepped in.

Libya was run by a secular Muslim leader who established stability and relative peace among all factions including Christians. The Saudis also aim to eliminate all secular leaders, mostly because they promote tolerance of Christians and Shia. Within a year after the criminal murder of Ghadaffi, aided by US-NATO forces, Libya fell into the hands of warring factions, predominantly ISIS, which adheres to Saudi Wahhabism and is a US-Saudi brainchild. Another Saudi victory, another loss – and humiliation for We the People.

The US supports the ouster of Bashar Al-Assad, a non-Sunni (Saudi Wahhabism is a Sunni sect), who also protects the Christians in his country.  Assad is also an ally of Christian Russia, making him doubly a target of the Saudis. The US motivation is pure and simple: Keep the Saudis happy by trumping up mostly unproven charges against Assad and training terror groups to defeat him. The US slyly calls these groups “rebels” but all of them are Islamists who will introduce Shariah law and persecute Christians. Many are linked to Al-Qaeda and have also passed on US-donated arms to Al-Qaeda and ISIS.

The dogged Neocon press insists that Iran is the biggest supporter of terror, despite the fact that this largely Shiite country has never supported any of the terror groups that oppose the West, such as the Taliban, Al-Qaeda and ISIS, all US-Saudi protégées. Arch-Neocon John McCain joked that he would like to bomb Iran. The US legislature was close to supporting an Israeli bombing raid on Tehran. This would have been another black eye for the US but a resounding victory for the Saudis, who aim to eliminate the Shiite religion everywhere in the world.

US antagonism for Russia can also be seen as part of this pattern of behavior intended to keep the Saudis happy.

The above recap of US foreign and military policy is ample circumstantial evidence that the most important elements of the secretive 40 year old petrodollar agreement are not known and may never come to light.

Nonetheless, this commentary is intended to encourage research in this area to see what might still be found, for examples, in records of classified phone, mail or email exchanges between the Washington government and the Saudis, and in the memories of officials involved in past US-Saudi transactions.

After all, confirmation that the government of the largest nominally Christian country in the world has been engaged for over 40 years in aiding and abetting the most intolerant and violent anti-Christian sect in the world – ie, Wahhabism – in its quest to eliminate Christianity everywhere might be a story of some interest.

Saudi press claims US behind 911 attacks

Saudis now claim US behind 911 attacks

 

by Don Hank
The Saudi press, seething over the possibility that Congress will allow the families of 911 victims to sue Saudi Arabia, is now claiming the US is 100% behind the 911 attacks.

While  am not buying the Saudi narrative that the attacks were made in the USA, it is clear that Bush covered for the Saudis, who, after all, did create Al-Qaeda (in a joint venture with the US).

The Saudis were definitely the main actors but American officials covered for them — whether or not they were in on the plot.

Add to this the fact that Russia and China are settling all oil trades in RMB and April was a record month for these trades, with China buying more oil – and in its own currency –  than it did from the Saudis. That puts pressure on the Saudis to walk away from its now threadbare petrodollar agreement – the only thing holding up the USD. I would be surprised if this agreement survived beyond 2016.

Consider this: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/alastair-crooke/petrodollar-us-saudi-policy_b_6245914.html

The petrodollar would seem by any measure to be losing its fight for existence. And since it is the basis of our war machine, the Asians could in fact bring down Washington’s military ambitions with their oil trade. We could hardly blame them after imposing senseless sanctions on Russia for all this time. The sanctions could be considered the trigger for the demise of the dollar.

We may soon see a world in which the US would be powerless to effect regime change of the kind that destroyed Libya and Ukraine, made Kosovo a no-go zone for its own indigenous Christian population, nearly destroyed Syria and sent millions of refugees, terrorists and hoodlums to flood Europe.

Why would anyone miss these misguided and stupid policies?

Washington may soon be a spectator rather than the bad actor it has been so far.

RIP New World Order?

If all of this happens as it is expected to, then who will bail out the impoverished and starving West?

Answer: None other than Asia – China and Russia. There are no other realistic options on the horizon.

In this perspective, Donald Trump’s statements about getting along with Russia and cooperating with her make perfect sense.

 

Next US president must understand the Putin Principle

The disarmingly simple Putin Principle in foreign policy

by Don Hank

One of the cardinal points raised by Sun-tzu in his “Art of War” is the proposition of knowing the enemy. I will take that a step further and say that sometimes knowing the enemy leads to the discovery that he is not the enemy after all. And one further step: to the discovery that one is one’s own enemy.

The US government is the classic example.

There seem to be an alarming number of people who actually believe that hoax email making its rounds claiming that Hillary’s emails have been hacked by Russia.

First off, the story originated with a well-known hoaxster with the pseudonym Sorcha Faal, who specializes in these Russian fairy tales.

Secondly, if Americans do not have the ability and resources to hack into Hillary’s server, how in heaven’s name would they be able to hack into the Kremlin server?

The Kremlin is not run like the Washington government. No official would dare to let down his guard enough for a Westerner to hack into Kremlin emails. The offender would not get a smack on the wrist, the way Hillary did. Russians are serious about their government. Sadly, Americans have degenerated to the extent that very few care any more or believe that any government could possibly be serious about protecting its people. Why would any government be more honest than ours?, they reason.

The whole idea behind this fake story is that the Kremlin wants to interfere in our elections.

Nothing could be further from the truth. You will recall that when Putin was asked his opinion of Donald Trump, he ventured to say that Trump was clever (Trump later expanded this compliment claiming Putin had called him a “genius”), but in his very next breath, Putin made it clear that Russia has a policy of non-interference in the affairs of other countries. He was thereby establishing an unmistakable contrast between Russia and the Washington government.

I will attempt in a few lines here to explain a somewhat complex cultural and political situation in Russia as well as the mind of President Vladimir Putin.

One of the most important things you need to know about Putin is that he is serious about government business. Unlike our demented officials, he does not play irresponsible games. I am just now reading his biography, and recently came across an anecdote about his early days in the KGB school in Leningrad, now Saint Petersburg (BTW, Putin was not a spy, but rather an intel analyst). A few of his class mates — senior classmen — were discussing a certain hypothetical order that they might receive in the field.

When it came his turn to add his opinion, Putin said “that order is illegal.” Their attitude was “so what? It is an order.”

He said, “it is still illegal.”

That brief anecdote speaks volumes about who Vladimir Putin is and why he is respected in his own country (his popularity is still in the 80% range) and. increasingly, abroad.

Now, taking this further, Putin saw many years ago that the Washington government lies and cheats. It makes its own laws as it goes and enforces laws that are not on the books. All illegal in the international sphere. (Example: James Baker promised Gorbachev that the US would never encroach on Russian borders. Once an agreement was reached with Russia regarding relations with the US, the US broke that promise, and it is still doing so, with NATO building up heavy forces along Russia’s western border). Americans have been brainwashed into believing that lawless behavior in Washington is a good thing because America is “exceptional.” But this slipshod attitude toward the serious matter of international law – which, after all, governs the circumstances that lead to either war or peace – has led to the near-total destruction of Kosovo (in case you missed these, see: http://laiglesforum.com/so-youre-fond-of-nato-eh-mr-cruz-check-out-these-videos-of-nato-in-kosovo/3690.htm and http://laiglesforum.com/look-whats-happening-in-the-european-region-that-nato-defended/3786.htm), Libya, Syria and Ukraine.

Putin discovered long ago that the US was on the wrong track and set about to develop a strategic policy for his country that would restore legality to geopolitics and so impress the rest of the world that they would eventually trust Russia more than any other country. I like to call this policy the Putin Principle. The Kremlin calls it soft power.

It is the iron-clad implementation of this simple principle that led to Russia’s policies in Ukraine (particularly in the former Ukrainian territory of Crimea) and Syria.

The Western press and political class has brainwashed an astounding number of Westerners into believing that Russia is promoting lawlessness in these regions when in fact, even in its military operations, it is respecting sovereignty of nations and ethnic groups and their territories.

The West claims in unison that the accession of Crimea to Russia was an “annexation,” whereby Russia simply snatched territory in a selfish expansionist move. And yet no serious party in this same Western world protested the referendum in Scotland or claimed it was illegal. The US and Europe were all prepared to accept whatever the outcome might be, including Scotland’s separation from the UK, based on the principle that Scotland had a right to sovereignty, even though it was technically part of the UK. And once that vote became official, the Crimean people were free to accede to Russia.

Yet what was perfectly legal in Scotland was “aggression” in Crimea, even though over 90% of Crimeans (the vast majority of whom are Russian speakers and consider themselves Russian) voted in this referendum to break away from Ukraine – and for the same reasons that many Scots (just short of a majority) wanted to break away from the UK, namely, cultural identity.

Thus, by our own Western logic as applied to Scotland, what the Crimeans did was legal and not in any way reprehensible.

Russia simply accepted the will of the Crimean people and honored their sovereignty. But of course, Russia is illegal by definition in the West.

Likewise, in Syria – in contradistinction to the US, which waded into an internal conflict without any invitation from the Syrian people – Russia entered the conflict only when the duly elected president of Syria invited it to do so. In fact, it made a similar offer to the Iraqi government but stayed out of that conflict when the Iraqis declined the offer, choosing instead to allow the US to pretend to fight ISIS there and create one of their  trademark messes.

The “exceptional” US government went into Syria illegally while Russia entered as an invited guest. The US was exceptionally lawless. Yet it accuses Russia of “expansionism,” just as England – the most expansionist country that ever existed, touting an empire on which the sun never set – had once accused Russia of expansionism during the conflict with Turkey in the 19th Century.

Thus the West has always written its own laws as it goes, based on nothing but bare-faced propaganda.

Note that Putin not only wants to apply this more-righteous and in fact, more common-sense international policy of strict adherence to international law to Russia but at the same time, to use this higher virtue as an arm of soft power by contrasting it with the West’s ad hoc law of the Wild West. He and his government, often via the mouthpiece of foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, use every opportunity (eg, UN speeches, speeches before the Valdai Club, press conferences, interviews, RT) to drive this concept home.

The American public will perhaps be the last to grasp this simple concept, not because they are stupid but because they have been brow-beaten into feeling that facing the truth about foreign affairs is somehow unpatriotic. But elsewhere, including in Europe, there are high ranking actors who seem to understand it. And they respect Russia for what must be called a superior approach to geopolitics. After all, ISIS would not be a threat if the Russian principle had been applied in the West.

60 Minutes: declassify proof of Saudi role in 911 w/ Bush complicity

60 Minutes: Declassify proof that Saudis committed 911 attacks w/ Bush complicity

by Don Hank

CBS’s 60 Minutes presented on April 10, 2016 a “compelling case for releasing 28 pages on 911,” which apparently indict Saudi Arabia for its substantial support for the 911 hijackings and terror. The Bush administration kept these 28 pages secret and the Obama administration continues to keep them locked up.

Whether or not you buy into the theory that the attacks were a false flag and that the Bush administration actually planned and contributed to the carnage, the fact remains that it definitely aided and abetted the enemy by hiding the Saudi complicity in the 911 attacks. We need to focus on that and that alone because it is sufficient to justify a trial for the horrific crime.

I am going to tell you what I think, straight out: The Bush administration is guilty of complicity in the murder of 2-3 thousand Americans. And this in no way mitigates the complicity of the Democrats who voted to keep these 28 pages under wraps and who were also complicit in the murder of thousands of Kosovars (as discussed here and here) and in the murders committed by ISIS, which they refused to stop or even hinder. (Lord willing, I will soon be posting a report on the anti-Serbian Orthodox holocaust in Kosovo that is happening today and is being censored everywhere, even by the Serbian government).

I had said here in June of 2014 that Washington DC is the seat of the Caliphate. I was not talking about any specific political party. They’re all in it together.

The 60 Minutes program is more evidence of the same and once this program has forced the government to declassify those damning 28 pages, the impact will be explosive, not only in the US but in the world at large (Tony Blair was a US puppet who joined the US war on Iraq even though that country had virtually nothing to do with the 911 attacks).

Now since CBS has a leftist slant, we need to guard against the false conclusion that the Republicans are more guilty of such crimes than the Democrats. The Kosovo war, Bill Clinton’s brainchild, and its immediate aftermath saw NATO airstrikes deliberately targeting civilians, as I describe here (if you click on

this link from that commentary, you will see a video taken by a NATO pilot who had deliberately destroyed a civilian train in Kosovo), and hideous crimes like murder for organ harvesting as reported by our friend Bernard Chalumeau here.

 

PS: I was running out of time and had not intended to post the above commentary on laiglesforum.com. However, I did send it out to a research group of individuals who submit and read articles and comments submitted daily by members of that group (to apply for membership, write to Don Hank at zoilandon@msn.com). I received this response:

Brilliant piece Don!!!! Giving it LEGS!

Ppl are slowly beginning to connect the dots, I believe, on the fact it’s no longer Conspiracy that US Govt. Has Been operating as a Criminal Enterprise for decades.  

I’ve Not read Roger Stone’s recent release on “Jeb, and the Bush Crime Family,” but is on my list of reads, – it’s unfortunate but reality, ALL US media is a propaganda machine for the Oligarchs… Only through bits and pieces, alternative media, websites such as yours, are the ONLY sources for truth anymore… & the MAIN reason TPTB are trying to take control of the internet, to limit the flow of their plans to commit evil against humanity for profit and power…

I want to power puke every time I read a Comment by clueless individuals, who herald the Bushes….OR!!!! use the worn out statement, “Well, at least Bush kept us safe!”

God help us…. So much ignorance in the population it is mind numbing.

Many aren’t able to SEE Truth when it’s right in front of Them!!!!

Film on Saudi brutality corroborates my warnings

The new video Saudi Arabia Uncovered is an expose of the brutal torture and murders occurring almost daily in the Saudi kingdom and the Western acceptance of this evil.

I have said before that the US government has shaped its foreign policy around Saudi interests — in order to keep the Saudis happy enough to keep propping up the US dollar by charging only USD for their oil. As a result, the Pentagon has reduced our brave young men to mercenaries for the Saudis and the State Department has adopted stealthy policies (eg, the refusal of the Pentagon to target ISIS in Syria in a serious and purposeful way) that make the US a virtual missionary for the cruel, intolerant religion of Wahhabism, which fuels all major anti-Christian terror groups, including Taliban, Al-Qaeda, Al-Nusra (supported as “rebels” in Syria thru US arms and money, thanks in large part to the treachery of John McCain) and ISIS.

In March of 2015, I wrote here about the US-Saudi petrodollar agreement, a taboo topic, and have shown in a translation and associated commentary here how the West is still very actively supporting Saudi-propagated terror.  Very little is written about the Kissinger-Faisal petrodollar agreement mentioned in my article of March 2015. Thus, I tried a search with the terms “text of petrodollar agreement us saudi” and found no text (Note: I am not referring to an economic agreement signed with the Saudis around the same time, which is published but does not mention US military obligations to the Saudis). This is not surprising. The Saudis are very secretive about virtually everything they do, especially about their agreements with the West. Perhaps we can look forward to the disclosure of such a text by Wikeleaks or the like. The reason given by the Saudis for this secrecy is that they do not want Arabs to learn that they are cooperating with the West. However, a more likely reason is that the US government does not dare let its people find out the dirty and immoral dealings it has with the Saudis (including clandestine arms shipments to Wahhabi terror groups) just to preserve the dollar – dealings that threaten not only Middle Eastern and European stability but civilization itself.
After all, readers might infer – rightfully – that the US is in fact a puppet of the Saudi royals and is behind all the terror organizations that it pretends to oppose. As Pogo famously said, “we have met the enemy and he is us.”

The West uses a vague reference to “shared intelligence” as an excuse for their support of the Saudis. Western leaders, mostly British, are quoted in the film repeating the mantra that they receive “valuable intelligence” from the Saudi government, as if this vague assistance could justify aiding and abetting the Saudis in their support of terror groups and the spread of the terrorist ideology of Wahhabism.

The film does, however, suggest that the West’s war in Kosovo (the subject of my recent article here) was apparently waged in order to help the Saudis spread terror and Wahhabism (a Sunni sect) in Europe. It had nothing to do with humanitarian motives. Thus all the brutality depicted in the film is in fact reflected in US foreign and military policy.

I had discussed here how NATO had in fact acted as a Saudi agent in the Kosovo war, and I had shown that candidates like Cruz who support NATO were in fact supporting not American security as they insist but in fact Saudi interests.

A quick analysis of all US-waged wars outside the Americas for the last roughly 45 years since the signing of the petrodollar agreement between Kissinger and King Faisal (no one seems to know the exact date but we know the time frame) reveals that none of these wars benefited the US in any tangible direct way, but that all of them benefited the Saudis by helping them spread terror and Wahhabism. Despite the obviousness of this observation (for example the fact that the Assyrian Christians started leaving Iraq in droves shortly after we “won” the war in Iraq), very little has been written by anyone besides myself regarding the link between the petrodollar and terror.

The only article I could find on the internet that arrives at a conclusion similar to mine is this one.

US politicians and the msm have been sliming Iran, Syria and the Shiites, and in so doing have given the Sunnis in Saudi Arabia a pass. This film helps set the record straight.

I think it is inevitable that, thanks in part to this film, the sordid Saudi influence on Western foreign policy will now come out bit by bit and serve as a catalyst for a much-needed change in Western foreign and military policy — preferably a 180 degree shift..

So you’re fond of NATO, eh, Mr. Cruz? Check out these videos of NATO in Kosovo

If you liked GW Bush and his wars, you will LOVE Ted Cruz, guaranteed. He will enable all of you folks nostalgic for the Bush years to relive all the exciting action and more. And Fox will make it even more enjoyable for you with their glowing reports of all the glorious US-led wars and attacks on everyone except the enemy.

In the wake of the Belgian terror attacks on an airport and a metro stop, Fox News is focusing heavily on Neocons in the discussion today.

Fox interviewed a host of Bush-era Neocons including John Bolton and John McCain, and showed Cruz criticizing Trump for wanting to withdraw from NATO. Cruz insists that NATO, the group that contributed mightily to the migrant wave in Europe, which brought terrorists along with it, must be strengthened.

Now let’s put this in perspective: the main reason we have waves of Muslim “refugees” invading Europe goes by the name of NATO, which has taken out Middle Eastern leaders who were the only stabilizing force in their countries, leaving vacuums that were predictably filled with ISIS.

Ghadaffi is the poster boy for this misguided policy. He administered one of the most prosperous and stable countries in the Middle East where Christians and minorities were relatively safe.

Then, without bothering to explain why, NATO took out Ghadaffi and within a year of that heinous and irrational murder (which made Hillary cackle), a group of about 20 Egyptian Christian guest workers were massacred in Libya by ISIS, which predictably rushed in to fill the vacuum, as seen on a viral video. The murder that led to all of this terror was an indirect result of NATO’s misguided policy toward Ghadaffi, which they have never adequately explained.

The US (which controls NATO) was also heavily involved in the Arab Spring in Syria and egged on the armed Islamist rebels, then supplying them with arms and training. Many of them later joined ISIS.

Now that the US has abjectly and deliberately failed to defeat ISIS in Syria and Russia has stepped into the gap and routed these terrorists in key areas, NATO is hypocritically wringing its hand over Russia, the nation that saved Syria’s Christians from almost certain death, and has added 40,000 troops to show the Russians who is “boss.”

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/syria-conflict-nato-raises-response-force-to-40000-troops-in-face-of-russia-s-aggressive-and-a6687046.html

NATO laments  in the above-linked article that Russia was attacking “rebels” at Jub al Ahmar near the Russian Latakia air base. That is nonsense. A report on the Russian attacks on this area shows a photo of a Russian strike on an ISIS stronghold there.

Further, the “rebel” groups there include Al-Nusra, which is a splinter group of Al-Qaeda (which took credit for the 911 attacks. NATO and Washington like them).

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/09/30/world/middleeast/syria-control-map-isis-rebels-airstrikes.html?_r=0

QUOTE:

On the other side, the rebel effort has received assistance from both the United States and the Nusra Front, an insurgent group linked to Al Qaeda. The United States and Russia consider the Nusra Front to be a terrorist group.

 

So let’s analyze what the NATO miscreants are actually saying:

NATO needs to strengthen its forces to oppose Russia in Syria because Russia is fighting rebel groups which include as their main component a group that is essentially Al-Qaeda, the group that took down the Twin Towers and declared war on the US.

In other words, NATO is alarmed because Russia opposes one of the US’s — and western civilization’s — most formidable enemies. Therefore, in order to keep Russia from attacking our enemy, NATO proposes to add extra forces to oppose Russia. Huh?

If you need to, reread the above paragraph a few times until it sinks in. You can’t make this stuff up.

Then consider this: Ted Cruz wants to strengthen NATO so they can oppose the only country that has effectively fought Al-Qaeda and ISIS — you know, the group that takes credit for all the recent terror attacks in Paris, Belgium, San Bernardino, etc, and has declared war on Western civilization.

So my question is: why does Ted Cruz like terrorists so much?

 

But the Middle East is not the only region that NATO (the misfits that Cruz wants to strengthen) has ruined and destabilized.

Here are some examples of major human rights violations by NATO, the runaway military organization that Cruz and all Neocons defend so fervently:

First let’s take a look at what NATO did to the civilian population in Kosovo:

Linked below is one titled “US army killing civilians and children.” This one contains poignant remarks by Michael Savage condemning Fox News for not reporting these horrors:

Here’s a video of a refugee convoy hit by NATO (remember that these are mostly going to be Serbs, a Christian group):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5jCs6SQH3Q

An article summing up civilian casualties (these would be mostly Serbs):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civilian_casualties_during_Operation_Allied_Force

Here’s one titled “NATO kills more civilians”:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwgYrBpXI3A

Here’s a short video of a NATO airstrike on a civilian train. You can see that the NATO pilot waited for the train to reach the bridge before bombing it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIi2QDJYLwk

But you can find many many more of these NATO strikes on civilians in a Google search.

So what kind of monster deliberately targets civilians? Answer: NATO.

And what kind of monster defends this murderous organization?

Answer: Ted Cruz, the man who wants to be your next president.

And what kind of monster supports this monster with free air time?

Answer: Fox News.

Open letter to Stratfor publisher George Friedman

Open letter to Stratfor editor George Friedman

by Don Hank

Your latest analysis titled “Even as the Russians withdraw, their legacy in Syria remains,” reveals the estimated numbers and positions of Russian armaments left after the partial drawdown of forces in Syria. Your point seems to be that, while Russia promised a withdrawal of its military forces, it is in fact holding on to quite a bit of hardware and is in fact expanding its bases.  It is a military analysis of the type that intel agencies everywhere share with their commanders to help them fight an enemy. This analysis can only be interpreted as an aid in combating Russia.

However, the prime enemy of civilization in the world today is not Russia, but rather  ISIS and other Islamic forces focused  on spreading the creed of Wahhabism, the most violent, barbaric and intolerant religion in the world that has openly proclaimed that it will convert the entire world to Wahhabism by force and kill those who oppose it. The groups we call “rebels” are also Islamists and typically go over to ISIS or share US-gifted hardware with ISIS when they deem that such is expedient.

Say what you will, but the fact is that if Russia took over the US and Europe at some point, civilization would continue and would thrive. But if their enemy ISIS and the “rebels” took us over, civilization would die. Our women would become their sex slaves, among other things. There is no comparing the two scenarios.And more importantly, unlike the US government, the Russians have never said they were “exceptional” or in any way expressed that they wanted to impose their ideology or way of life on anyone or be the world’s policeman. So that scenario is not going to happen.

Since Russia is the only world power that is, together with its ally Bashar Al-Assad, effectively fighting ISIS, having pushed the group out of important strongholds, then your publication of this military analysis disclosing information on important Russian positions is analogous to an American news agency in the 40s publishing key positions and numbers of deployed Russian troops and armaments in the WW II theater. This would have been considered treachery by most American readers, who would have realized that this information would have been used by the fascists to their advantage and would have put all of the allies at risk.

Further, since Russia is part of a coalition organized by the US government, it is in fact our ally. Yet you treat it is though it were an enemy.

Why not publish such information about our enemies, ISIS and the rebel groups, and about their supporters, Turkey and Saudi Arabia?

At this very moment, Turkey, which has already shot down one Russian plane — a war crime considering that Turkey was part of a coalition that included Russia and was supposedly helping to fight ISIS — is allowing Saudi Arabia to amass fighter planes at the Incirlik air base for the purpose of invading Syria and, obviously, fighting against the legitimate, duly elected Syrian government and Russia.

Although the US government and media outlets, including those dedicated to strategic analysis, have made a supreme effort to portray Russia as an enemy and the Saudis and Turks as friends, the American people know when they are being deceived. They know that Russia is a friend of the Western people and do not trust the Saudi and Turkish governments.

Therefore, my question to you is: Particularly in view of your plummeting readership, why do you treat a friend as though it were an enemy and treat your readers as though they were incapable of doing even the most elementary analyses of their own?
