The Art of Manipulation: Israel Manoeuvres to Put US on War Footing with Iran

21 Oct

[Published 20 October, 2017]

In the week that the puppet president, Trump announced he was tearing up the nuclear non-proliferation deal with Iran, it appears that it is Israel that is the one pulling his strings from the outset. Rehmat’s World wrote that American writer and author Dan Sanchez in an article had predicted that the bloody war by Israel and its Zionist lobbyists in the Middle East was destined to fail, in which he calls Israel a warmonger. Even as early as 1990, former president Reagan accused Israel of misleading him over the Iran contra affair.

Trump’s announcement that it was a “bad deal” clearly illustrates his willingness to wag tail when told by his master but also his naivety on the world stage and grasping of the fundamentals of basic diplomacy. The obtuse and train wreck of a moron even had the brass neck to lay blame on Iran for successive US invasions in the Middle East and North Africa.

For the record, when the security of the entire region of the Middle East and, indeed, the rest of the world is at stake, the last thing any sane individual should do, is seek to antagonise a wrongly perceived obstacle and enemy to world peace. Even the most simple-minded individual should know this.

As David Frum put it in the Atlantic, Trump’s threats aren’t credible because he himself isn’t credible. In other words, Trump is a complete moron. In the same piece, Frum goes on to suggest that Trump’s announcement is not unwelcome to some. Well, yes, Israel wants it to happen.

Trump should have learned this lesson from the recent response he received from Kim Jong Un after his sabre-rattling and making baseless threats to destroy North Korea.

In short, Trump has absolutely no power at all to tear up the deal, whatever Israel demands and neither does the US Congress, or the US State department. The sheer notion of a war with Iran is ludicrous wishful thinking at best. Israel can whistle.

Rightly so, Trump was immediately slapped down by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and a European Commission spokeswoman. Both of whom reminded Trump that the deal was a multi-lateral and not a bi-lateral agreement. Even France and Britain have spoken out against Trump on pulling out of the deal.

As was the case with the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan before, Israel’s demands and expectations, are that the US ultimately dismantle Iran by creating another proxy war under false pretences of WMDs. This is not going to happen, because the rest of the world will not allow it. To tear it up would require the consent of all parties to the deal, which is never going to happen. China and Russia will never acquiesce.

Feck knows what Trump’s thinking was when coming out with this statement and obviously he wasn’t listening to any advice given to him before making it except that which was being fed to him via Israel.

Just like most other US president’s, Trump is another of Israel’s lapdog, acting like a deranged wind-up duracell bunny, with a perma case of foot-in-mouth and crass arrogance in a ‘who’s got the biggest dick contest.’

In addition to subsidising Israel’s economy to the tune of billions of US taxpayer dollars, the US and Israel have always had a special relationship regarding but-not-limited-to, who in the Middle East is permitted to possess such weapons and go unchecked.

The relationship has always favoured Israel, as you can see here:

For those somehow unaware or ill-informed, the deal between Israel and the US, is that the latter acts as guard dog, whilst neglecting the American people, in favour of funding Israel’s tech developments and protecting its expansionism.

In Netanyahu’s recent speech to the UN General Assembly, he declared, “Israel’s policy toward the nuclear deal with Iran is very simple: Change it or cancel it.” And he made no secret of what that meant: If Trump doesn’t “cancel” the deal, he must get rid of its “sunset clause” and demand that Iran end its advanced centrifuges and long-range missile program, among other fundamentally unattainable objectives.

It is also well-known that Jared Kushner is a strong advocate of Israel and a longstanding friend of Netanyahu’s, wrote Gareth Porter in the above article. In his book, Porter contends that the nuclear threat by Iran is entirely manufactured by Israel.

To add further weight to Israel pulling the strings, it was the Israeli senior diplomat, Elad Ratson, attached to the British embassy of Israel, who kind of let the let the cat of the bag, so-to-speak.

Within a few days of Trump’s announcement, the US Treasury put out a statement designating Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a supporter of global terrorism but stopping short of accusing it of the manufacture of weapons of mass destruction.

As with many others, Ratson was quick to jump on and praise the statement, suggesting that it was a great move. When asked what he meant and to clarify the role of Israel in the matter he clammed up and immediately blocked the person asking him on social media but not before agreeing that war was on the cards. Ratson also praised the decision by the US to pull funding and support for UNESCO and suggested the UNRWA was next in Israel’s sights for criticism of Israel’s human rights abuses against Palestinians.

In June 2017, Hanin Abou Salem, for Al-Jazeera, claimed that the Netanyahu wants to disband the UNRWA because of its humanitarian work with Palestinian refugees. Ratson’s posts on social media and comments made by Ambassador Nikki Haley to the UN would seem to confirm. Until there is a solution between Israel and Palestine then the mandate of UNRWA is not done, says Salem. Therefore, the only way for Israel to resolve its Palestinian problem is to remove UNRWA.

As stated earlier, all of this is manufactured to serve Israel’s interests, whilst it, Israel, wreaks havoc across the world unabated. To be clear, Israel is a warmonger and worse than all other countries combined, in my personal opinion.

I never thought I would say this, but Israel is a pariah, largely responsible for all the wars in the Middle East and North Africa since the 70s, and humanity’s greatest threat. Yes, the US invaded and did the killing but Israel put them up to, causing complete carnage and creating the current refugee crisis in Europe in the process.

If Israel continues its meddling in this way, then it needs to be put down like the rabid dog that it is. Either Israel plays peacemaker and starts being civil or drag it and Netanyahu to the international criminal court. Should that fail and Israel continues in the way it has been, then dismantling it is the only solution in order to save the rest of humanity.

As the Kuwaiti official, Marzouq Al-Ghanim said this week to the Israeli delegation at conference in Russia: “occupiers… if you have no shame… get out of the room.”

Donald Trump, Obamacare, and Slight of Hand

[Published 27, September, 2017]

That odious and greedy, orange potato head, Donald Trump is at again with Obamacare!

Everyone who requires cover under the Affordable Care Act is required to register. However, one of the big myths about it, is that it’s free when it isn’t*.

The deadline for enrolment is usually on annual basis, with registration open between 01 November – 31 January each year, for cover for the following year, and everyone who is eligible has to pay a premium*. Why one is required to enrol annually and not just once, goodness knows!

Trump however, not content with having failed to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and with no signs that it will fail, has quietly cut the advertising budget by a staggering 90& for the public information awareness campaign encouraging enrolment for 2018.

What this means, is that anyone requiring cover, who fails to enrol by the deadline, will not necessarily be covered. The Obamacare website states:

“If you missed open enrollment, your only options are Short Term Health Insurance, employer-based coverage, Medicaid, and CHIP. Those who miss open enrollment may find themselves with no other options and may end up owing the fee.”

Obviously, most individuals who require cover under the ACA, are unable to afford their own cover and/ or do not have enough cover provided by their employer or private insurance, if indeed they are either employed or can even afford any insurance of their own.

According to CNN Money, enrolment for ACA is actually on the slide, as it puts it, which appears to be  largely due to a small number of recipients finding alternative cover through employment, but most of the slide is due to people no longer being able to afford to pay their premiums.

So, by cutting funding for advertising and public awareness campaigns encouraging people to enrol, Trump is deliberately seeking to sabotage Obamacare and underhandedly leaving millions of American citizens without any health cover of any kind, whatsoever.

Not only has Trump pulled the advertising budget, but he is also accused of reducing the subsidy available, changing the eligibility criteria, and types of cover available to applicants.

The Hill reports:

The Congressional Budget Office indicated in a report this week that 24 million people could become uninsured under the GOP plan by 2026.

The Obamacare website suggests that anyone wishing to apply should seek to do so no later than the 15 December. So, to get the word out, please share this blog and the enrolment link here: https://www.healthcare.gov/get-coverage/

Let’s show Trump and his cronies, that health care is a basic human right for everyone!

A Prediction: Trump, the Muslim Ban and an Imminent Attack 

12 Feb

 

 
[Updated 07 April, 2017] 

When I blogged ‘Trump: A Walking Disaster’ after his election win, I made some pretty bold but clear comments about things that would happen during his presidency, including several catastrophic predictions in the likely fallout that may follow for the rest of us.

Already, we are less than a month into this ‘Mad Hatter’s tea-party’ state of affairs, and the signs are showing that my predictions are beginning to bear out in what may well become a global nightmare.

I ask you, 20 executive orders in his first 10-days in public office?

This man isn’t a world leader interested in diplomacy, peace, and global stability.

He’s a self-interested, narcissist, autocrat, and dictator. It is no exaggeration to state, that every single one of these 20 diktats signed by Trump, either benefits him personally – or is intended to undo peace, equity, and stability – whether domestically, or globally.

One of these orders was to place a blanket ban on the citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries travelling or emigrating to the United States. This was on the cards as one of his election promises, so it isn’t really a prediction, at all.

What is a prediction, however, is what may well come next; and I am not the only one saying or thinking it may actually happen!

And no, I am not talking about any diplomatic, tit-for-tat, spats or sanctions being imposed on US exports or markets, or condemnation by world leaders. This type of response was always a given in such circumstances — no matter who the president, or the country!

In response to his defeat; first, in the lower, district court and subsequent defeat in the federal circuit appeals court, Trump took it personally and let his own prediction be known (of the possible outcome) of the Court’s ‘defiance’ of his ‘authoriteh’, in its refusal to uphold and reinstate the ban.

In a rather prophetic and his usual manner of ill-concerned twattering, Trump tweeted, that the ruling is ‘bad’ and that ‘the United States security is at stake’.

He followed this up with another tweet, stating that if an event was to occur – by which he means a terrorist attack – it should be the Courts and the Judiciary that are held accountable for such a travesty.

Trump’s prediction here – if, indeed, there is one – is whether or not there will be an imminent attack on US soil.

Has an attack been pre-planned? Has it already been set in motion? Does Trump have any knowledge of such an attack? If it were to happen imminently, who planned it? What will be the repercussions?

Had the ban remained in place and there been an attack at some point in the immediate future, you could have blamed Trump, himself. Now you can’t, because he’s shifted the blame and responsibility if it does.

So, who benefits and who loses if his apparent prophecy occurs?

As the most unpopular president of all time, how timely (and how much of a coincidence) would it be, if there were an imminent major terrorist attack in the US?

The outcome (of such an act) would see sweeping and fundamental changes across the whole of America, including wholesale reform of the legal system and judiciary and a reintroduction of the ban.

As Trump, and his inner circle, have already sounded out and made mutterings regarding sanctions against Iran and Yemen, it would likely mean these two countries get the blame, which would give Trump the reason to justify another prolonged US-led, engineered invasion and murderous war.

Only time will tell if Trump’s and my predictions become a reality, but it’s food for thought!

You can bet if they do, that it will not be a coincidence.

As if by magic my predictions come true! Trump is bombing Syria after a chemical attack orchestrated by the White House. 

The article below has since been removed from the paper’s website. 

Trump is doing exactly what he once advised Obama specifically not to do. Who benefits? Yes, you guessed it! 

As I write this update, news has just come in that Russia has sent a war ship to confront two US destroyers in the Mediterranean.

Donald Trump: A Walking Disaster

9 Nov

When I say disaster, I mean it!

Trump is a documented serial bankrupt, an alleged paedophile and rapist, an out and out racist and homophobe, and a proud misogynist who even lusted after his own daughter on live television.

I don’t need to back up any of these claims, as the evidence is already out there.

Trump won because those who voted him in — largely White, uneducated, gun-toting, religious rednecks and coffin-dodgers — did so, to stick one to the establishment and on a clearly racist anti-immigration ticket.

This was coupled with the outrage of the bible-bashers upset with LGBTI rights laws, Muslims, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the economic woes of every day batshit American lives. 

The right-wing media gleefully did its part to feed into and stoked much of this hatefilled and vitriolic clusterfuck.

Like the humorons who voted for Brexit in the UK with their ‘little island’ mentality who are supporters of racist UKIP et al, the Moricons — by which I mean wilfully moronic, fuck-nugget Americans, in case you don’t understand what the term implies — who voted for Trump see themselves as having more rights and privilege over anyone else they do not consider one of them.

Want examples?

The KKK, the American Nazi Party, and the White Nationalist American Freedom Party, all endorsed Trump, as did the many evangelical organizations.

Well, here is what Trump is going to do, or seek to do:

  • Repeal equality laws for Black and other minority people, including the LGBTI community.
  • Strengthen religious freedom to discriminate against each of the above groups.
  • Repeal Obama’s healthcare bill that currently protects 62 million people on low incomes.
  • Forcibly deport and intern Latinos and Muslims.
  • Introduce greater protections for law enforcement officers who shoot down unarmed members of the public to allow them to escape scrutiny and justice in many cases.
  • Remove the rights of Native Americans to protect their homelands and property, which will include sending in military to forcibly remove them, even in a body bag.
  • Increase pollution and global warming by removing current legislation and granting no strings licenses to big corporations to produce more coal and frack without any consideration to local residents or the environment.
  • Make abortion illegal, even for rape victims, in favour of demented fucktard Xtian zealots.

With Trump in the driving seat of one of the world’s leading and most powerful economies, these are just a few of the things that are likely to get the go ahead.

Don’t even get me started on the American economy. It’s already on its arse; by which I mean dirt broke. Yes, that’s right, America is bankrupt; both morally and financially! Not a pot to piss in! Tanking! Living on borrowed time!

Doubt me?

In case you were wondering, there are now more than 10 major American cities that have filed for bankruptcy since Wall Street and lacks financial control caused the 2000, 2007 & 2008 crashes that resonated across and still impact on the world to this day. Many other American cities are in prolonged deficit and the housing market is still on its arse.

America is the most indebted country in the world, to the tune of 19,643,000,000,000 dollars. That is more than all the other most indebted countries in the world combined. Its trade deficit is equally as bad, and there is nothing Trump can do.

What about checks and balances, you may ask? They won’t work. America’s political system of lobbying, bribes, and favours, is one of the most corrupt in the world. Besides, Trump’s supporters and the humorons who voted for him would lynch him if he doesn’t carry out his promises.

Only today, on the announcement of his election, the dollar dropped again. It will drop further. The example below is proof.

World markets have also slumped but are recovering, unlike America.

Yes, America, you can expect recession and a deep depression like no other! Ultimately, Americans will suffer more than they have ever before. The rest of the world will also feel it but will recover more quickly.

Trump’s only solution is quantitative easing, which will devalue the dollar further, thus increasing inflation, damaging the markets such as structured products, depressing interest rates which impacts on savings and pensions, and international trade.

(China has previously stopped exporting valuable minerals to the U.S. due to its quantitative easing program).

Already world leaders are sending warning shots to Trump.

As my neighbour’s 11 year old daughter said today: “Mummy, the world is doomed! What are we going to do? Can someone assassinate him?”

Despite my equally negative views of Hillary, I would have to agree with this girl’s conclusions.

America is well and truly fucked!
