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.

 

Look what’s happening in the European region that NATO “defended”

Look what’s happening in the European region that NATO “defended”

by Don Hank

From the site: Pravoslavie.RU

From the fourteenth century to the present day, the land of Kosovo and Metohija has been, and will always remain, the spiritual heartland of the Serbian Orthodox nation. Sanctified by a multitude of monasteries and churches as well as by the blood of martyrs, the holy land of Kosovo occupies a place of honor and reverence within the souls of all believing Serbs.

The pretext behind Bill Clinton’s war in Kosovo was genocide against the Albanian Muslim Kosovars, supposedly perpetrated by the Christian Serbs.

Now Kosovo is a holy land to Orthodox Serbs. It holds sites of some of the first churches and sacred monuments ever built in their country – in fact, some of the first in Europe. Some are around1,000 years old.

A joint report was recently issued by In Defense of Christians (IDC) and Knights of Colombus (KC) for the purpose of inducing the US Congress to issue a statement that the persecution of Christians in the Middle East is genocide. While this IDC/KC report mentions how the Knights of Columbus had defended Christians persecuted in Mexico under President Plutarco Calle, in Italy under Mussolini and in communist bloc countries, it does not mention persecution of Serbian Orthodox in Kosovo and Greek Orthodox in Cyprus. It is hoped that eventually, the situation in Kosovo and other parts of the former Yugoslavia will be brought to light. However, time is of the essence.

Once submitted to Congress, their report produced the desired effect. Not only did Congress issue a statement declaring persecution of Christians in the Middle East to be genocide, but the Obama administration was forced to reluctantly follow suit, for fear of losing face. However, while the report presents a meticulously detailed account of the known murders and persecution of Christians in Iraq and Syria, it does not mention the genocide in Kosovo, which is ongoing and is a hideous blemish on US foreign and military policy. It should give pause to anyone who has advocated that NATO be “strengthened” (eg, Ted Cruz and followers) rather than dismantled (as suggested by Donald Trump). In effect, while IDC and KC are to be commended for their meticulous study and efforts to bring this report to the US Congress, by singling out only the Middle Eastern Christians, sadly, their report glosses over Bill Clinton’s biggest crime, the Kosovo War, which I described here. The ulterior motivation for this war, and all Middle East wars in which the US engaged, was described here.

This accusation of “genocide” by the Christian Serbs was far from supported by the facts on the ground, which, according to reports from Serbian bloggers and others, seemed to suggest the inverse, ie, genocide against Christians by these supposed victims, who may have made some missteps in defending themselves against criminal Albanians but unquestionably had the right to defend themselves. In fact, as reported, for example, by the BBC here, the UN declared after the war that – at variance with the US allegations – the situation in Kosovo did not rise to the level of genocide against the Albanian Muslims. But it was too late. You can’t wind back a war.

The Serbian Parliament issued a report here taken from a speech by Chief Delegate Aleksandar Cotric at the autumn session of the International Secretariat of the Interparliamentary Assembly of Orthodoxy, held in Nicosia, Cyprus, from November 22 to 25. The excerpts appearing in the following are my translations from the Serbian from this site. Cotric’s speech contained horrific details rarely reported outside of Serbia, and while the Serbian Parliament’s site did include these details in its Serbian-language site, its English language site omitted them. Here are my translations of the salient details (emphasis mine):

“Since 1999, Serbian clergy, monks and temples of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Kosovo and Metohija have been exposed to constant attacks, threats and provocations by Albanian terrorists and extremists.”

“Since then more than three hundred thousand Serbs have been expelled from their homes in Kosovo and Metohija, and about 150 churches, monasteries and other religious objects were destroyed, damaged and desecrated.

“More than ten thousand icons, ecclesiastical art and liturgical objects were also stolen or destroyed, and about six thousand tombstones at about 350 Serbian Orthodox cemeteries destroyed or damaged, while in more than 50 Serbian Orthodox cemeteries, there is no monument left intact…”

The sanitized version of this report in English, authorized by the National Assembly (Parliament) of the Republic of Serbia, mentions, like the IDC/KC report, only the persecution of Christians in the Middle East and completely ignores the situation in Kosovo, even though the Kosovar persecution follows the same signature MO as the ISIS persecution in the Middle East. The Serbs who wrote this report would have had every right, and obligation, to report at their English-language site, the above-described ongoing destruction of an entire Serbian region ever since the end of the war in 1999.

Another English-language page of this National Assembly site goes so far as to mention the “Kosovo-Metohija issue” but does not elaborate. Thanks to media self-censorship, no non-Serb would have any idea what this issue is or that it involves genocide against Christians by the Muslim Albanians that NATO purported to protect. How does one protect thugs? Did Ted Cruz know about this when he recommended that NATO be “strengthened”?

So why did the Serbian government not speak out on the dire situation of Christians in Kosovo at its English-language site?

That’s easy. Serbia has applied for accession to the EU and the negotiations are ongoing. The EU is a US puppet and may not mention that the US’s (and NATO’s) war in Kosovo has been wreaking havoc in that region for 17 years. We must all be good little puppets.

Likewise, the Facebook site of the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of Orthodoxy, which appears in English, Russian and Greek, also omits the above details of Christian persecution in Kosovo – in each of those languages – obviously for the same reason. So if a European state wants to join the EU, it had better not tell the truth about the dire situation facing your Christian population. This situation perfectly fits the definition of tyranny.

I went to the Assembly’s Facebook page and posted, admonishing them to stop the self censorship and warning them that they would be better off outside the EU, which had acquiesced to the destruction of Kosovo in cowardly fashion.

There are a few honest and balanced reports on the Kosovo war and its causes, for example, at this site.

An excellent video at this site presents an honest picture of the situation in Kosovo before, during and after the war. Note the role of the Americans in assisting the Albanian Muslims to purge the Christians.

Very obviously, the Kosovo war was not about preventing genocide. It was part of a larger effort by the Western elites to eliminate Christianity.

 

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..

Elitists shocked: Same identical experiment fails again

Global elites shocked: Same identical experiment fails again

 

by Don Hank

I am hearing from a number of people who say that the elites are allowing terror acts in order to have an excuse to declare martial law. In other words, the elitists are omnipotent and all-wise and everything that happens these days is a result of elitist machinations. While it is true that Belgium was in lockdown for a few days after the Paris attacks and transport was shut down for a short time after the recent Brussels attacks, these were necessary measures and not necessarily a sign that the elites wanted martial law.

The real truth of the matter is that the global elites do not believe in controlling their subjects by physical force. Like the early communist theorists, they believe that once the people are conditioned properly under the tutelage of superior beings like themselves, the state will melt away and the populace will not longer require external control. But now these elites are being blindsided thanks to their naïve belief in an unworkable ideology, which includes the notion that a non-Muslim or Christian country can accommodate unlimited numbers of Muslim immigrants, and all of them will learn to get along fine as long as certain elitist principles are followed — ie,  once their superior education system and media have completely eliminated any undesirable thoughts from among the populace and successfully implanted correct thoughts in their charges, thoughts that will reproduce themselves from here to eternity in the Utopia of their creation. Here is a typical example reflecting this notion:

QUOTE from http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-03-24/jihad-brussels

“Islam belongs in Europe…. I am not afraid to say that political Islam should be part of the picture.” — Federica Mogherini, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.

The terminally naive Angela Merkel had said almost the exact same words: Islam belongs in Germany – before, that is, scores of German women were assaulted sexually in Cologne last New Year’s eve by the beneficiaries of Merkel’s invitation to the tired and poor of the Muslim world. Merkel’s subsequent attitude and statements were classic deer in the headlights reactions. She could not think of anything coherent enough to say to stave off a catastrophic loss by her party in the regional elections. Things had clearly spun out of her control, at variance with the popular narrative that the elites control everything. In fact, the consequences of their actions are more often unintended and that is just the opposite of control.

It is clear that these people naively believed that if they applied “European principles” and stuck to their “European values” (including a Pollyanna view that everyone, even devout Muslims, would automatically accept the Western concept of “democracy” and “freedom” (two words that globalist GW Bush used ad nauseam referring to the Iraq fiasco), once they had seen these superior concepts in action in real life.

The reaction of these Western “leaders” to the hard fact that Muslims will never accept “Western values” – with many preferring instead to massacre their naïve liberal hosts – shows that these elitists were not just pretending in order to usher in martial law. They actually believed in their hearts that their “values” (which, as I pointed out here, are not values at all) would be universally accepted, even by Muslims, once they were displayed vividly enough for all to see in action. But in every venue in which this experiment has been tried, “Western values” (called “European values” in Europe) have in fact failed to attract the general public. This is because of something called culture, whose existence the global elites refuse to acknowledge (because they despise the very concept, as I showed here), let alone accommodate it in their public policies. A fatal flaw for them and an opportunity for We the People.

Following the Brussels attacks, the same Mogherini mentioned above broke into tears and could not give a scheduled news conference, as shown in this video. What does this prove? It proves that the naïve Italian girl who had swallowed the elitist notion that everyone would assimilate in Europe and accept European values once exposed to them, was not only wrong, but she was in fact stunned by the failure of her ideology. She was totally unprepared for reality because, like all elitists, she did not believe even in the existence of culture as a political force and could not believe that the Muslim culture would make Muslims behave differently from Europeans once they had been exposed to the far superior European culture (did you catch the racism?).

A similar phenomenon was observed when the US elitists were unable to throw enough money and propaganda at the Jeb Bush campaign to sweep their pathetically incompetent candidate into the presidency.

This refusal to accept reality does not give the elitists power, as many of you believe. It robs them of their power by setting them up for a string of unpleasant surprise upsets, which include the rise to power of anti-Establishment politicians throughout the West:

Donald Trump in the US

Nigel Farage in the UK

Marine LePen in France

Geert Wilders in Holland

Viktor Orban in Hungary

and a host of lesser but rising political figures throughout Europe.

The Islamic jihadists are the catalyst in a rapidly evolving unstoppable but unintended vicious cycle:

The more naively and blindly the elitists behave, for example, by inviting hordes of “refugees” into Western countries, the more terror occurs throughout the West. The more terror occurs, the more powerful the anti-Establishment movement becomes.

If the terror seems unstoppable, the growth of opposition to the elites is also becoming unstoppable at the same time, creating the conditions for a perfect storm of civil unrest and perhaps war.

The reactions of the elitists, as described above, clearly show that things are not going according to plan for them.

The fact of the matter is that WE are in control if we can acquire the essential ingredients for freeing ourselves of slavery, namely, wisdom and knowledge.

To acquire these, we all need to study harder to learn the skills of proper personal and individual analysis, and to rely less on the herd instinct that betrays us in our quest for freedom.

The only way Europe can be saved

Fox News recently reported that there are some 400 ISIS fighters poised to unleash hell against the foolish Europeans who insist on importing them to their shores in the vain hope that they will somehow assimilate and learn “European values.”

So why this is happening in Europe and not the US?

This is happening there primarily because the European governments and in particular the EU have invited people from Muslim terror-exporting countries into European countries, where Muslims who are hostile to Westerners and their “values” have been able to settle in enclaves and no-go zones and live without integrating, while receiving welfare and social services from their beneficent hosts.

Therefore,

1—Their children never learn European values

2—European values do not include any religion but only disdain for religion. Ultimately, they are not values at all but rather anti-values. If you ask a typical European about his religious views he will be quick to offer a litany of things that he does not believe but almost nothing that he holds dear and reveres let alone worships. Muslims cannot be expected to accept this blasphemous and disrespectful view as a viable alternative to their strong faith.

You cannot fight Islamic terrorism from an atheistic standpoint because atheism is not a standpoint. It offers people nowhere to stand, just a floating platform where no one feels secure. Thus by shunning religion Europeans offend them deeply.

If Europe were a bastion for a masculine, vibrant and and strong brand of Christianity, this obstinate rejection of Europe would not be happening, for at least 3 reasons:

1—Christians would understand that Islam is incompatible with Christianity and Christian Europeans would not invite them into their midst as readily as do atheistic Europeans, whose “leaders” entertain an unrealistic hope that Muslims can be turned into cookie-cutter images of themselves. And believe me, Muslims know, and resent, that this is the ultimate aim and are not about to give up their faith in God for anything. I have spoken with serious minded young Muslims who immediately warmed up to me and respected me when I told them of my belief in Christ. It was as if I was precisely the kind of Westerner they were looking to befriend. A common complaint among them was Western atheism. One of them told me he had lived and studied in France for 11 years and had never met anyone who believed in God.

2—Strong Christians would not hesitate to witness to Muslims for Christ, and Muslims, for their part, would instinctively understand that Christians revere and honor their Christ and their God in the same way as Muslims honor Allah and Mohammed. Contrary to the squishy European view, this would not necessarily be offensive to Muslims because they would see strong witnesses for Christ who held firmly to traditional Christianity with its rejection of immoral sexual lifestyles.

3—Whereas many Europeans, particularly on the right, show hatred toward Muslim immigrants, these immigrants would sense that Christians do not hate them and in fact love them and want to see them leave their violent religion and come to Christ.

Unfortunately, the only Christians they meet in Europe are the squishy ones who are afraid to witness for Christ to a Muslim. Some even see Islam and Christianity as branches of the same tree of faith when in fact, Koranic Islam is a neurotic construct that has adopted a few features of Christianity while rejecting the core of it and, out of the other side of its mouth, mocking and despising the People of the Book. (I explain this here in detail).

Whereas atheism offers them nothing attractive, solid and viable, a masculine and firm but loving Christian faith offers them a viable alternative to the belief in a violent and intolerant god who demands from his faithful a constant fountain of blood from the veins of unbelievers.

If Europe ever rediscovers the redeeming faith in Jesus Christ and returns to its roots the way the Russians have done after years of religious repression, they will automatically find the solution to the Islamic terror that has it in its grip.

If you want a glimpse of what a strong, masculine redeemed European might look like, I would urge you to read this report on the Russian Christian activist group known as the Night Riders.

 

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?

Why Washington and Wall Street support Wahhabism

Why Washington and Wall Street support Wahhabism

 

by Don Hank

 

A reader of my commentaries sent this link to a story of a large American man confronting a Saudi in a US city who was raving on in defense of ISIS. This shows, among other things, that radical Islamists feel comfortable defending ISIS because they know the US government does not sincerely oppose the group.

I keep reminding readers that 92% of Saudi citizens polled have said that ISIS represents the “spirit of Islam.” That means we are not fighting just a rogue government but in fact an entire populace that would die for this fanatical idea. The Saudi fanatic is representative of an entire nation that loves ISIS, hates America and receives the full support of our wretched government.

Now Turkey is starting to run along with the Saudis and adopting Wahhabism.

Now this would be horrible but manageable if it were not for the fact that the US government has wholeheartedly supported the Saudis.

IF YOU NEVER READ ANOTHER THING IN YOUR LIFE, READ THE ARTICLE LINKED BELOW TO SEE WHY THE US GOVERNMENT IS SUPPORTING AND EVEN FUNDING THIS FANATICAL RELIGION BEHIND THE SCENES WITH ITS WAR POLICIES, PRETENDING THAT ITS WARS ARE DOING GOOD FOR MANKIND, DEMOCRACY AND ALL THAT ABSOLUTE NONSENSE. MANY OF YOU HAVE READ THIS BUT MANY HAVE NOT AND SOME HAVE READ IT AND THEIR MINDS SNAPPED BACK TO NORMALCY. READ THIS CAREFULLY:

http://laiglesforum.com/how-the-petrodollar-perpetuates-islamic-terror/3216.htm

After reading this, you will stop thinking the Washington Satanists are just crazy or inept. They know exactly what they are doing. They are propping up a dollar that, without the Saudis’ charging ONLY US dollars for their oil, would have melted down a long time ago thanks to the Fed’s seemingly insane policy of printing dollars unbacked by anything and our government’s frenetic give-away policies.

The Fed knows the Saudis have teflonized the dollar and it can’t lose its value. (BTW, if it were not for the Saudi support of the dollar, the Fed would be brought into line and the US would be able to grow its real economy again so don’t think for one minute that this artificial life support for the USD is a good thing. It only allows your government to control you and keep you poor while making its cronies rich). How do I know your “government” has made this pact with the devil and supports the spread of Wahhabism in exchange for a sound petrodollar?

The answer is so obvious and easy you will kick yourself for not figuring it out a long time ago.

Since Sunni Wahhabism teaches that the world should only be inhabited by Sunni Muslims of the most radical kind (like the chap in the video linked above), they will not tolerate 2 kinds of governments in the Muslim world, namely:

1–secular ones, like Ghadaffi’s, Mubarak’s, Saddam Hussein’s, Assad’s, etc. Now what happened to these governments? The leaders were deposed and they are all dead, and all the Christians in those countries are now in deep peril, are dead or have emigrated, right?

WHO — what country and its allies — killed or deposed these leaders? You know the answer to that. The Saudis’ GOOD FRIEND the USA. (It was not the fault of the general public. They were kept in the dark. But today is Sunday. If you are a Christian and you continue to let this happen — by never protesting and never telling your friends and family this awful truth, how are you going to face the Lord on Judgment Day?)

2—So what is the other kind of government the Saudis will not tolerate?

Christian governments, like the Serbian government. The Serbs are Orthodox, like the Russians. Not only that, there was a large group of Muslims in Serbia, and they were being ruled by this Christian government, which refused to coddle them when they committed the usual crimes like raping Serbian women. So the government cracked down on them. Behind the scenes, the Saudis told Bill Clinton they would not tolerate this situation. So the US government, media and allies spread the tale that the Serbian government – trying to bring the Muslim trouble makers under control – were committing genocide (that is the same story they tell about Assad – a story told and promoted by the genocidal Saudis!).

So the US went into Kosovo, supported by a false story of genocide, attacked the civilian population, bombed hospitals and other infrastructure, brought down the Christian leader, and carved a new MUSLIM state out of Serbia.

Our mistreatment of the gentle beleaguered Bashar Al-Assad fits this pattern perfectly. While he is  not a Christian himself, he is a Shiite (and specifically, an Alawite), and if there is such a thing as a good Muslim, it is the Alawites, who protect and aid Christians.

Assad is in turn supported by the Russians, and this fits the puzzle, showing why the Neocons in government and media have created artificial hatred of Russia, the most Christian country in the world, which has been provoked almost beyond measure by the US government. There is nothing in any of these details that does not fit my theory to a t.

Now we come to the most ticklish part. What about Israel?

Surely you have noticed by now that the Saudi-supported ISIS has not attacked or threatened Israel? How can Wahhabis tolerate a non Muslim state in their midst?

Friends, Israel is surviving by doing what the US government is doing: going along with the Saudi strategy (both the US and Israel are dhimmis). For example, Netanyahu came to the US Congress to try to persuade them to support an Israeli airstrike on Shia Iran. This is exactly what the Saudis want. Sunni Wahhabists cannot tolerate Shiites, and Iran is almost 100% Shiite — the branch of Islam that tolerates Christianity (although you would never learn this from the Neocon press and msm). Israel does not need to fight Iran for its own purposes. In fact, almost half of Israelis do not want such a confrontation. But the Israelis know that if they please the Saudis, like good dhimmis, they will be rewarded. They also know that they will please the Neocon US government. Finally, note that the only groups and nations that oppose Israel are predominantly Shiite, the enemy of the Sunnis, esp the Wahhabis. You see how seamlessly it all fits together?

There are many more details but let us stop here and analyze what we have got:

Since GW Bush, every aspect of US foreign and military policy has coincided perfectly with the Saudi Wahhabist plan, as you can see. There were no wars or near-wars – such as the US support for the Arab Spring, which brought down or challenged secular governments – that did not benefit the Saudi plans for the spread of their fanatical religion. And likewise, you will have noticed that there were none that really truly benefited the US or its economy.

The evidence for my theory is overwhelming and those who have read my pertinent analyses here http://laiglesforum.com/how-the-petrodollar-perpetuates-islamic-terror/3216.htm and http://drrichswier.com/2014/06/15/washington-d-c-seat-caliphate/ and have absorbed them are convinced. There can be no rational argument against this theory. The only barriers to accepting it are normalcy bias and a feeling that knowing this is like eating the forbidden fruit.

But God knows I am right, and Jesus said He was the truth and the light. The Bible says that men love darkness because their deeds are evil.

Washington DC is the heart of darkness. Our job is to flood it with the truth and the light.

We have no time to lose.

 

Neocons: ISIS is friend, Iran is enemy

A friend (C) sent me the WSJ article appearing below my commentary. It represents the Neocon viewpoint that Iran and its other Shiite allies are the most dangerous enemy of the American people. The author exploits the fact that Obama is a disaster to suggest that the trouble with Obama’s foreign policy is his Iran policy. Yet, upon analysis, this article harbors a hidden suggestion that the Sunnis — including Saudi Arabia and Turkey, and their protege ISIS — are not a serious problem, and that if we can just bring Iran under control then ISIS will just melt away, and we can rely on our “allies” Saudi Arabia and Turkey (which spawned and fund ISIS) to resolve the Middle East crisis. Authors like the one below are really up against a huge challenge, namely, making black seem white and white seem black. Logic tells us that the group that chops heads of Christians and declares that it will take over the world must be by far the most dangerous enemy. Yet the Neocons insist that ISIS is not the problem at all. Iran — the only country other than Syria that sincerely engages ISIS on the ground — is the biggest threat. Logic tells us this is absurd and dangerous thinking.

So how do these enemies of the American People manage to control your minds?

By making you think anyone who disagrees with them is a bad American, lacks patriotism and supports Obama.

But the fact is, if you support the GOP and Democrats in Washington and their supporters in the msm, the groups that most Americans mistrust, then it is impossible to say you are a good American. You are an Establishment stooge, and that hurts We the People. Because there are two Americas — the Washington Establishment and its minions in the msm, on college campuses, etc — and We the People.

Until Donald Trump announced his candidacy we had virtually no representation at all. We were sitting ducks.

It behooves every good American to oppose with every fiber of our being the false and treacherous narratives of our Establishment, especially with regard to the Middle East, where Washington’s Satanic policies are killing Christians and other minorities in the name of “security.” The main reason they have gotten away with this so far is that Americans know next to nothing about the cultures, politics, religions and intrigues of the Middle East.

We keep hearing “all Muslims are evil.” This is exactly what the Neocons want you to think.

Below is my response to C.

Don Hank

 

 

C

And yet the writers who want to disarm Iran are just fine with Saudi Arabia and Turkey having all the weapons they want to kill innocent Kurds and Yemenis and to arm their terrorist pals in Syria and Iraq. (Pretending they are “moderates.” However, these moderates include a group called Al-Nusra, which is in fact Al-Qaeda in Syria. Thus our “allies” are supporting the group that knocked down the Twin Towers. And Washington is fine with that! John McCain is delighted.

 

A quiz on three nations: Iran, Saudi Arabia and Turkey:

Now, can you tell me which of these countries support and founded ISIS (besides the US) (you may choose more than one)?

Iran

Saudi Arabia

Turkey

 

Here is another question: One of these nations teaches that ONLY the Sunni religion should be allowed to exist in the world. This same nation bans the worship of Christianity and the importation of Bibles.

Which one?

 

Another of these nations has 600 Christian churches and allows Bibles to be imported.

Which one?

 

Pakistan warned one of these nations that if it steps out of line, Pakistan will nuke it. Which one?

We are being led to believe that SUNNI ISIS is a minor league player and that the Shiites are the main enemy. Yet the Muslim world is completely dominated by the Sunnis.

 

Two of these nations are SUNNI and one is SHIITE. Which ones?

 

If we were smart, we would improve our relations with the Shiite nations in order to establish a balance, rather than supporting the biggest bullies and even helping them to beat up on the weaker ones. This policy is the very essence of Neoconservatism and is the reason why the Middle East is a mess.

An alliance between Russia and the US for the purpose of restoring balance between Sunnis and Shiites and between both of these branches and Israel would bring peace to the region and enable both East and West to prosper. Russia is already working toward that end but is facing fierce opposition throughout most of the West. Authors like the one below are contributing to the chaos.

The Neocons in both parties want chaos. They, the Neocons, are the true enemy of We the People. We will defeat them or continue to be their slaves.

Here is the most curious thing:

Polls show that only about 20% of Americans trust their government and that we also mistrust our press. http://www.people-press.org/2015/11/23/beyond-distrust-how-americans-view-their-government/ Trump’s poll numbers confirm this.

And YET, while we mistrust our government, a shocking number of us are willing to accept the bipartisan government narrative that the Sunnis are the good guys and the Shiites are the bad guys in the Middle East.

So while we are smart enough not to trust the government, we are allowing it to lead us around by the nose in terms of foreign and military policy.

Our government knows that, even if we mistrust them, thanks to our ignorance about the Middle East, they can still control our minds.

But for how long?

The truth about the Middle East can be found easily enough, even by a Google search if you know what to look for.

Stumbling Toward War

 

By Arnold Ahlert [PatriotPost.us]

A spate of stories published last week all point in one troubling direction: America’s adversaries have taken the measure of our commander in chief — and found him seriously wanting.

We begin with the news that Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Iran Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan regarding the purchase of the S-300 air defense system and offensive weapons that include Moscow’s most sophisticated T-90 tanks and Su-30 Flanker fighter jets. Thus one of the key provisions of the Iran nuclear deal, a.k.a. UN Resolution 2231 — requiring Tehran to get UN permission before acquiring “battle tanks, armoured combat vehicles, large calibre artillery systems, combat aircraft, attack helicopters, warships, missiles or missile systems” — is on the verge of being ignored. Adding insult to injury, Gen. Dehqan is believed to be the architect of the 1983 Beirut bombing that killed 241 American service members. [SO AHLERT THINKS THAT IRAN AND RUSSIA ARE OUR ADVERSARIES. SINCE HE IGNORES ISIS, HIS MESSAGE IS THAT IF WE CAN JUST CONTROL IRAN AND RUSSIA, THEN ISIS WILL GO AWAY. THIS IS ABSURD SINCE THESE ARE THE ONLY COUNTRIES SINCERELY FIGHTING ISIS—DON]

Iran is also expected to thumb its nose at the same resolution this month when they test a Simorgh space launch vehicle characterized by U.S. officials as the basis of their covert program to develop long-range nuclear missiles. [AND YET, PAKISTAN, WHICH IS INFILTRATED BY ISIS, ALREADY HAS NUKES AND ISBMS AND NEOCONS LIKE AHLERT NEVER MENTION THIS. PAKISTAN IS SUNNI, SAME RELIGION AS ISIS. PAKISTAN HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE A GREATER THREAT TO ISRAEL THAN IRAN  http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/tarek-fatah/israel-iran_b_3506504.html –DON]. An unnamed State Department official who spoke with The Washington Free Beacon epitomized the administration’s flaccid response to the prospect, declining to speculate as to whether such a launch would violate the agreement, but promising to address any Iranian actions “inconsistent with any relevant U.N. Security Council resolutions … through the appropriate channels.” Iran insists the space launch vehicle’s 220 pound payload is too small to carry a first-generation nuclear warhead. The Beacon’s Bill Gertz reveals otherwise: “Space launch technology is identical to long-range missile technology.”

And from whom is Iran getting the technological expertise for such an effort? An April exposé by Gertz reveals that while the nuclear negotiations with Iran were proceeding, North Korea supplied the mullahs with “several shipments of missile components” that also “appear to violate UN sanctions on both countries.” That would be the very same North Korea that South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS) asserts is planning a terrorist attack orchestrated by Kim Jong Un. The same North Korea that launched a long-range rocket of its own this month — following January’s test of hydrogen bomb components. [WHAT ABOUT PAKISTAN, MR. AHLERT? – DON]

Americans must never forget why North Korea has nukes. The same bankrupt ideology that animates the Obama administration’s horrendous deal with Iran drove Bill Clinton and his North Korean emissary Jimmy Carter. They repeatedly assured the nation the Agreed Framework of 1994 would prevent a nuclear North Korea.

> Even if one were to concede such a momentous failure were an honest mistake, the idea the Obama administration would so willingly repeat it exemplifies the arrogance of a president who believes clever rhetoric can overcome evil ambitions by Communist or Islamist totalitarians. [BUT IRAN IS SHIITE, TOLERANT OF CHRISTIANITY, WHILE PAKISTAN IS SUNNI, INTOLERANT OF ALL OTHER RELIGIONS—DON]

An equally ambitious China revealed the hollowness of Obama’s promise of an Asian “pivot,” locating surface-to-air missile launchers and a radar system Woody Island in the South China Sea. The island is part of the Paracel Island chain and ownership is claimed by both Taiwan and Vietnam. The rising level of aggression follows condemnation by China, which vowed there would be consequences following the passage of U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer USS Curtis Wilbur (DDG-54) within 12 nautical miles of Triton Island, also part of the Paracel chain. A U.S. defense official called “on all claimants to halt land reclamation, construction, and militarization of features in the South China Sea,” but one suspects this is another “red line” moment for the administration. [THE SAME NEOCONS WHO WANT THE US TO CONFRONT RUSSIA AND CHINA CLAIM THEY WANT TO RESTORE THE POLICIES OF RONALD REAGAN. YET THEY IGNORE THE FACT THAT REAGAN HAD THE GOOD SENSE NEVER TO CHALLENGE NUCLEAR-ARMED NATIONS, AS I HAVE SHOWN HERE http://laiglesforum.com/ronald-reagan-would-be-crying-now/3517.htm]

Speaking of red lines, the administration’s failures in Syria may also lead to tragic consequences. “The Syrian civil war, still spiraling out of control, may soon lead to something even worse: a Russian-Turkish conflict that would engulf the region, magnify the war’s death toll and destruction, and likely mark the end of NATO,” explains columnist Benny Avni. Thus Secretary of State John Kerry’s allegedly engendered “cessation of hostilities” has become little more than what the French ambassador in Washington, Gerard Araud, referred to as “a smokescreen for the intensification of the offensive” by Russian and Syrian forces that included the bombing of two hospitals near the former rebel stronghold of Aleppo. “If Russia continues behaving like a terrorist organization and forcing civilians to flee, we will deliver an extremely decisive response,” Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu stated following the strikes. [YET TURKEY IS PRECISELY THE NATION THAT BUYS AND SELLS ISIS OIL http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2015/12/12/erdogan-and-the-islamic-state-oil-trade-is-turkey-funding-terrorism/ This makes Turkey a terror supporter, not Russia—Don ]

If Russia and Turkey engage in all out war, NATO is supposed to help Turkey. Avni notes what will likely happen in that event. “We don’t do wars anymore, remember? We, and NATO, are the weakest link in the Syrian war, which by now is a mini-world war, with players from near and far deploying armies and backing proxy militias.” A senior NATO official was even blunter regarding cause and effect: “It’s clear that there has to be some actual ‘redline’ for Mr. Obama, something that the United States cannot tolerate Russia doing — but where is it? If I don’t know, I’m sure the Kremlin doesn’t either.”  .  . [“TOLERATE RUSSIA DOING”? AHLERT CLEARLY THINKS WE SHOULD BE SUPPORTING TURKEY, THE PROVEN SUPPORTER OF ISIS, WHILE CONFRONTING RUSSIA, THE PROVEN ENEMY OF ISIS. THE NEOCONS WANT YOU TO ACCEPT THEIR UPSIDE DOWN VIEW OF THE WORLD SO THAT THEY CAN ENRICH THEMSELVES FROM THE DEATHS OF UNTOLD NUMBERS OF AMERICAN SERVICE MEN IN ANOTHER WAR WITH A FORESEEABLY DISASTROUS OUTCOME—DON]

If Putin is a thug, what is Erdogan?

If Putin is a thug, what is Erdogan?

by Don Hank

A reader forwarded an email exchange between him and a friend who repeats the refrain that Putin is a “thug.” The reader wanted to know how I would answer this friend. I responded as follows.

Western commentators and politicians like to call Putin a thug, based on suppositions and suspicions.

However, when we evaluate human character, since no one is perfect, the conclusion cannot be absolute. To be valid and fair, it must therefore be relative – relative, that is, to other people who are their peers. In this case, to make the evaluation relevant and useful, we would have to compare Putin with a comparable peer or peers among Western allies – in analogy to the use of a control group in scientific studies. Otherwise, if Putin is no more a thug than a US ally is, it would be unfair to Putin and a clear cut sign of Russophobia to call Putin a thug but not others who exhibit similar or worse behavior. But Russophobia is racism, and racists is not who we are – or are we?

Since we are living in the here and now, the only fair evaluation would be a comparison with a comparable peer, say, Turkish president Erdogan, whose country is a NATO member. If we could demonstrate that Putin is more of a thug than Erdogan, then we could perhaps validly call Putin a thug.

In other words, to conclude Putin is a thug would be to conclude that Erdogan is not a thug, or at least that he is significantly less of a thug, since our elites never call Erdogan a thug.

After all, evaluations of foreign leaders are made to assemble useful pragmatic evidence for use in forging foreign policies vis-a-vis the foreign leader in question. It’s a matter of national security.

In the case of Putin, perhaps the most important issue is:

Can we trust Putin enough to cooperate with him, say, in Syria?

Let us just examine this one issue to keep it simple.

Now the internet is awash with reports that Erdogan, via his son Bilal, is buying and selling Syrian oil stolen by ISIS. While complete verification is not yet possible, it is nonetheless certain that there is a thriving oil smuggling business in Turkey and it would be impossible for this to be going on under Erdogan’s nose without him knowing it. A very well-documented report is here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-l-phillips/research-paper-turkey-isi_b_8808024.html.

This suggests 2 things right off the bat:

1—Erdogan’s government is complicit in criminal activity – specifically dealing in stolen goods — a felony.

2—By virtue of the above, Erdogan’s government is a terror supporter and specifically, it supports ISIS, a terror group with which we are at war – or rather We the People are at war with ISIS. Our government is not seriously engaging ISIS on their Syrian turf (thus Obama by his negligence is exposing the people to harm).

So while we may or may not trust Putin, we certainly can see that there is no reason whatsoever to trust Erdogan, particularly in Syria. Further, no one has found credible evidence that Russia supports ISIS or buys ISIS oil. And yet the US Establishment has declared Erdogan an ally in the fight against ISIS and very few Western journalists have protested – even though many of them do protest against cooperating with Putin, who is not buying ISIS oil.

Now comparing Erdogan (and in part, Obama – though he is beyond our narrow scope here) with Putin, we see right away that Putin is fighting ISIS. Our Neocon press is pretending this is not true, but we can easily see that ISIS certainly feels attacked by Russia because when Russia started bombing ISIS targets, ISIS claimed responsibility for the Russian plane downing over Sinai, as reported here http://www.ibtimes.com/isis-group-claims-responsibility-downed-russian-plane-officials-say-malfunction-2163917. (BTW, Turkey had focused its investigation on ISIS in a deadly bombing attack in Ankara months ago but ISIS did not claim responsibility as they normally do, suggesting that Turkey was grasping at straws in an effort to make its alleged opposition to ISIS seem plausible:

http://edition.cnn.com/2015/10/12/middleeast/turkey-ankara-bomb-blast/

“Though no group has claimed responsibility for the deadly weekend bombings in Ankara, the focus of the investigation is the Islamic extremist group ISIS, Turkey’s Prime Minister said Monday.”)

One might contend, however, that the bombing of Syrian hospitals and schools was thuggish, and Putin has been blamed in the Western press for this. But there are several drawbacks to this contention. For one thing, the culprits in the bombing have not been proven to be the Russians, and in fact, the US has also been fingered in this bombing. Further, the Russians have absolutely nothing to gain by bombing civilian facilities, and there therefore is no plausible motive for the Russians, whereas the anti-Russian West has plenty of motive to have done this and pinned it on the Russians.

But thuggishness in foreign leaders also includes bullying and strongarming one’s own people.

Has Putin ever been proved to have bullied his people?

Despite the kangaroo court in the UK where Putin was found “probably” guilty of ordering the murder of Litvinenko, a detailed analysis of the British investigation procedure shows that it was not in keeping even with British law: http://thesaker.is/the-litvinenko-inquiry-londons-absurd-show-trial/ and that there is no such legal precept as “probable guilt.” It is clearly a politically motivated verdict.

There have been an unfortunate number of journalists murdered or suspected to have been murdered in Russia but no link has been established with the government, although some victims were opponents of Putin. However, some of these victims in fact had ties to the underworld while others had run afoul of Chechen Muslims and were apparently killed by terrorists. None of the victims were serious threats to the Putin administration and no strong motive could be established.

Most went unsolved.

In stark contrast to this, it is well known that Erdogan muzzled journalists just before the last presidential election and also has jailed journalists. Erdogan is known to have ordered these thuggish actions, as reported here

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/turkey/11292790/Turkey-president-launches-crackdown-on-opposition-in-their-lairs-as-23-arrested.html

“Turkish police on Sunday launched a series of arrests of journalists and other media workers – including the editor of the country’s biggest-selling daily paper – as a purge of opponents of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan worsened.”

So whereas Putin is only suspected by already anti-Russian governments of having been a thug, Erdogan perpetrated his thuggishness openly and therefore, no investigation is necessary to establish his culpability.

So while the Western political class, press and blogosphere routinely call Putin a thug, and never call Erdogan a thug, we can say that a gross injustice is being done against Putin by highly Russophobic Western officials and politicians.

We could also make a similar comparison with Mohammed bin Salman al Saud, the deputy Saudi crown prince, who recently had 46 people executed, including 4 Shiite leaders. The dominant Saudi sect, ie, Wahhabism, the most intolerant Muslim sect, teaches that non-Sunnis, including Christians, deserve the death penalty. The Saudis founded and sponsor Al-Qaeda and ISIS while claiming they oppose these groups. Killing people for their religious faith is thuggishness by any measure.

Yet Western political “leaders” and commentators never call Mohammed bin Salman a thug and the press that they virtually control also gives him a pass, even while keeping the pressure against Putin high. But why wouldn’t they? Washington has been sending arms to Al-Nusra for years, and the other name for that group is “Al-Qaeda in Syria.” So the Neocons are arming and funding the group that took down the Twin Towers. Yes, it serves their purposes to make Russia look bad.

Clearly, in calling Putin a thug while giving true thugs like Erdogan and Salman a pass, the Western elites are relying on their peoples’ lack of analytical ability and the residual anti-Russian sentiment left over from the Cold War, which, thanks to the tireless propaganda efforts of these elites, is now raging once more, even threatening to become a hot war.

Going  back to our question whether we can trust Putin to cooperate with us in Syria, it looks like he is the only one we really can trust to be effectively fighting ISIS, even as the other “allies” seem to be supporting ISIS by their inaction, by supporting them financially and by opposing the most effective adversaries of ISIS.

Is this effectiveness in defeating ISIS not in fact the reason behind all the slander of Putin by the Establishment?

No, Obama is not a Muslim

No, dummies, Obama is NOT a Muslim

 

by Don Hank

 

I regularly receive propaganda pieces from various organizations with assertions representing a very common viewpoint among Neocons, worded essentially as follows:

The recent sham and highly dangerous deal with Iran over its nuclear weapons development is proof enough that the president sides with “his people” over not just Israel but also the rest of we [sic] real Americans.

In fact, this nuclear deal with Iran shows that Obama is not a Muslim. Since he was brought up in Sunni Indonesia (99% of Indonesian Muslims are Sunnis), then if he took seriously the religion in which he was steeped, “his people” would be Sunnis, the enemies of Shiite Iran. The Muslim world is dominated by the Saudis, the Gulf states and Turkey, all of which are SUNNIS, the arch enemies of Iran, which is predominantly Shiite.

Iran is the only fully SHIA-majority country in the world. The Sunnis are responsible for all terror attacks and populate ISIS, Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, Boko Haram, Al-Nusra and all throat slitting anti-Christian terror groups. Unlike the Iranian SHIA, the Sunnis, especially the Wahhabi sect, believe that all non-Sunnis must convert or die. Iran obviously does not support this concept.

The Sunnis rarely attack Israel, which sometimes has collaborated with the Islamic terrorist group Al-Nusra, for ex, in the Golan Heights. There is apparently a symbiotic relationship between Israel and terrorist groups, as shown here and here.

According to the theorists who believe Obama is a Muslim, he would be a Sunni, and indeed, he bowed before the Sunni king of Saudi Arabia and was also enrolled in a Sunni Muslim school in Indonesia.

Yet he has made this nuclear deal with the Shia in Iran which could theoretically enable Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. This is a real puzzle for those who postulate that Obama is a Muslim but not for normal rational people.

I suspect Obama has in fact been influenced by his most intimate advisor Valerie Jarrett, who grew up in Iran. I do not think there is any further explanation for this. The Saudis are livid over this deal.

Further, no devout Muslim would promote the homosexual agenda as Obama does.

The problem with Obama is not that he is a Muslim but that he belongs to the New World Order that seeks to eliminate white America and traditional American culture, especially Christianity. Some of the people behind the Obama-is-Muslim meme are seeking precisely the same goal.
