Canadian Newz Update: "....the political depth of a finger bowl" PM thinks he can work NAFTA deal with US

finger bowl

What is that definition of insanity again?  Oh yes, "Repeating the same action over and over again, expecting different results."  That definition would apply to le Dauphin in his never-ending effort, along with Mexico, to come to a new NAFTA agreement with the Trump government.

Trudeau's political acumen was accurately assessed by former Harper Government Cabinet Minister Jason Kenny in an op-ed the other day.  Please read the snippet from the National Post and I'll have more comments to follow:

“I worked with dozens of MPs in Ottawa, including (opposition) critics who were thoughtful, intelligent, engaged people with whom I had a constructive relationship. He wasn’t one of them,” [Jason] Kenney said Wednesday.

“(Trudeau) is a person that I worked with as a minister for three years who I got to know quite well as somebody who has difficulty with complex files, and I think (Trans Mountain) is a very complex issue.” 
In a Calgary Sun column published Wednesday, Kenney was quoted attacking Trudeau’s ability to resolve a dispute that has delayed construction on the Trans Mountain pipeline, which would triple the amount of Alberta oil flowing to tankers in B.C. Trudeau doesn’t have “the foggiest idea what’s going on,” Kenney said in the column.
“I know Justin. He doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing. This guy is an empty trust-fund millionaire who has the political depth of a finger bowl,” he is quoted as saying.

“He can’t read a briefing note longer than a cocktail napkin, OK.

Greencrow says:  Trudeau and his cabinet are trying to work two very complex deals at the of them the inter-provincial dispute between Alberta and British Columbia over the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion and the other one a new NAFTA agreement.  Neither set of negotiations is going well. Here are some recent headlines about how the NAFTA negotiations are going:

Trudeau says a NAFTA deal is getting hung up on Washington's demand for a sunset clause

PM explained Canada's opposition to a NAFTA expiry date in real estate terms


'Nowhere near close:' U.S. rebuffs Trudeau hope for quick NAFTA deal

U.S. trade czar Robert Lighthizer cites 'gaping differences' after Trudeau says a 'good deal' is on the table

Greencrow:  It's definitely NOT rocket science. I can say quite assuredly here and now that there will NEVER be a new NAFTA agreement. NEVER!  Any idiot can figure that one out.  Why?  Because the US government under the Trump Administration (but probably it would be the same under ANY administration) is non compos mentis.  Or, as the Russians is "not agreement capable".  I have spelled this out at length in several previous posts but, for the sake of the "hard of reading" will repeat myself ad nauseam.  The United States has, for economic reasons, set itself up as "the exceptional" state.  It does not adhere to treaties or international agreements because that would infer that there is such a thing as "international law" that governs its behaviour.  Since it is above the cannot subject or submit itself to legal restrictions of any type.  That is why it regularly breaks the Articles of the United show the world that they don't apply to the USrael.  Similarly, that is why Israel regularly breaks the Geneva Conventions AND the Articles of the United Nations.

There WAS a time when the United States of Israel could AFFORD to pretend to submit to Trade Agreements and International Laws.  Those days are now past.  USrael has spent itself into a hole and the only way it can dig itself out is by pretending that it has the RIGHT to rape and pillage all over the world...and to trample on the economies of even so-called allies.

I have to laff.  Trudeau and his cabinet of clowns only have to look around the world to see evidence that they will NEVER reach a deal with the US.  Look at North Korea.  Look at what the bozo Bolton said on TV a week or so ago about applying the "Libya" model to its negotiations with North Korea.  Here is a snippet from Moonofalabama about "Trumps threat of total decimation of North Korea makes a deal impossible".

During a press conference yesterday he was asked about the "Libya model" issue (vid) and, in a seemingly off the cuff remark, managed to push the divisive comparison to a new level:
“The model, if you look at that model with Gaddafi, that was a total decimation. We went in there to beat him. Now that model would take place if we don’t make a deal, most likely. But if we make a deal, I think Kim Jong-un is going to be very, very happy.”

One might call that the 'art of the mafia deal': "Sign here or I will kill you."

Some media pretend that Trump was only "assuring" Kim Jong-un. Reuters headlined Trump seeks to placate North Korea's Kim over uncertain summit; the New York Times: Trump and North Korea Rebuff Bolton’s ‘Libya Model’; Politico: Trump offers North Korea’s Kim assurances and a warning.

In my book a thread of "total decimation" is a quite a bit more than "a warning".

The British Guardian had a more realistic take: Donald Trump's threat to Kim Jong-un: make a deal or suffer same fate as Gaddafi.

The threat Trump made shows North Korea that it was right to acquire nuclear weapons and the capability to launch them onto the continental United States. Giving them up would be suicidal.

Trump also mumbled that he would give "strong assurances" to North Korea and Kim Jong-un for their safety should they make a deal. He did not explain what those assurances would be. The way Trump destroyed the nuclear agreement with Iran, which came with "strong assurances" from a U.S president and a UN Security Council endorsement, demonstrates that no assurance the U.S. ever gives is worth the paper it is written on.

Greencrow says: All of the efforts of the United States of Israel are taken up with fomenting instability, regime change and worldwide conflict leading to WWIII.  The Trump administration, caught in a spiral of economic collapse that they believe can only be halted by a World War...have no time or energy to sincerely and/or seriously negotiate a deal.  They can only break deals.  That is the only mandate that has been given to them by the "deep state".  They are terrified of the growing global coalescing of support for China's "One Belt, One Road" initiative.  That is the time bomb tick-tocking in the background of all their international communications.  Here is Mike Whitney's recent assessment:

" wouldn’t surprise me if Washington’s deep state powerbrokers are more concerned about the proposed [pan Asian] regional free trade zone, than they are about the North’s nuclear weapons. In order for the US to be a major player in the most populous and prosperous region in the world, it must implement its “pivot to Asia” strategy that controls China’s explosive growth and prevents the emergence of an economic or military rival. The so called “Putin Plan” for vast economic integration is a direct threat to Washington’s dream of maintaining its dominant position in the global economy. If successfully implemented, the Putin Plan will greatly accelerate the pace of imperial decline...."

Greencrow:  As stated, the only genuine initiative that USrael is engaged in is global de-stabilization...aimed at Russia, China and their allies with a view to provoking WWIII and somehow, like the alchemists of ancient times, forging gold out of iron or brass. Or, as they say...bringing "Order out of Chaos".  Hey, it "worked" twice previously...World War I set the stage for the Israeli 'regime--which was born out of you can't blame the globalist, Ziofascist warmongers for wanting a threepeat.

According to this analysis in the off-guardian...the War on Afghanistan was a preparation for an eventual attack on Russia and a "spanner in the works" of the Belt and Road Initiative that Russia and China are working toward which, if successful...could transform the world the same way that the travels of Marco Polo and the trade routes thus formed ultimately transformed Europe.  The BRI or the New Silk Road or whatever you want to call it...promises to transform world trade not only in Asia but all over the world.  If Canada weren't led by such an utter dolt, Canada could now be playing a pivotal role in extending the trade route across North America.  This would transform Canada's north and be the potential salvation of the indigenous peoples of northern Canada....who are currently languishing under the not-so-benign neglect of the Trudeau "make voluminous apologies to all and sundry...but don't deliver on financial promises" pathetic administration.

The community of Pagnirtung, a hamlet of about 1,400 surrounded by mountains, glaciers and ocean had 12 suicide attempts over two weeks last February after a year without a suicide.Andrew Seymour / The Ottawa Citizen 

Greencrow summarizes:  For evidence of the crisis the Canadian north is currently in, please read this report from the National Post about Nunavut in Crisis--"Arctic communities plea for resources to deal with suicide-violence".  If "le Dope-fiend" didn't have a poker stuck up his @$$ when it comes to Putin and Russia...if he really cared about Canada's north...he would save one of his putrid apologies for Putin, for gratuitously dissing him/Russia ever since he [Trudeau] came to power. This, contrary to his election promise to Canadians to "reset" international relations.  Justin would get down on his knees and beg Putin to let Canada in on the Belt and Road Initiative....which would save Canada's North and Canada's sovereignty in one fell swoop.  It should be clear that Trump's scuttling of NAFTA was a yet another backdoor effort in the relentless march towards "Harmonization" and a North American Union.  But the clueless Le Dope-fiend dangerously [for Canada's sovereignty...such as it is] hitched his political star to the economic basket case/Ponzi scheme south of the border.  As Jason Kenny astutely surmised...Trudeau doesn't have the political depth of a finger order to extricate himself/Canada from the hand-basket ride to hell that USrael is now on.

My blogging colleague, Northerntruthseeker has a post up today about the mess that Trump has got USrael in vis a vis breaking the JPCOA multi-nation treaty with Iran.  This is an absolute case in point in support of my argument that USrael is non compos mentis.  Now Drumpf, as NTS calls talking about a 12 point "Jumbo" deal with Iran.  Who can assure Iran...or anyone in the entire world...for that matter...that the USrael would keep a "Jumbo" deal any more that it kept the JPCOA deal that it took Obama four years to arrive at?  The Trump administration has been in a free fall of internal crisis and chaos ever since taking office.  Trump will probably be impeached and/or removed from office long before the signing of any so-called "Jumbo" deal....or any deal, with Korea, Iran OR Canada/Mexico.

So...only a complete fool would seriously negotiate with an entity that insults would-be treaty partners like Drumpf is doing to North Korea ["Libya model"] and Iran ["Jumbo 12 point impossible deal]. Only a complete fool, you say?  Step right up Trudeau.  Keep on banging Canada's head against the brick wall of Ziofascist warmongering globalism.  My fingers are getting tired of typing this depressing crap...somebody....get me a "finger bowl".

UPDATED: Three Canadian Soldiers killed by land mine in Ukraine?

It appears so from the following
developing story.

UPDATED: May 21, 2017  The only report on this story on the mainstream media [the CTV report linked below] said that the original story emitted from a "tweet" from a pro-Russian source.  CTV called it "fake news" from Russia.  The fact of the matter is that I got the story from a pro Kiev Junta Ukrainian news source.  So, if the CTV report is false regarding where the source of the story came can we be expected to believe the CTV assertion that it is "fake news"?  I will therefore keep my eye open for clues as suggested by Penny and will alert readers should any follow up information appear on the Internet.

Hey GC:

I saw the CTV 'denial' yesterday... and since it seemed obvious that's exactly what would happen, I wasn't shocked- what has to be watched for is 1. reports of soldiers deaths in Iraq (Iraq and Ukraine seem to have some connection)
More accurate still might be local reports of soldiers deaths- bodies returning to Canada- it would be pretty much the only way the news could be verified.
Blogger greencrow said...
Hi Penny:

Yes, we will need to keep a watch out for newz reports of soldier's deaths/injuries anywhere. These soldiers could have been on a black ops mission and the families told that, due to so-called "national security" their deaths/injuries would not be publically announced.

The only thing we know for sure is that, during the months of the World Cup in Russia...their WILL be military conflict to distract Putin and disrupt the cup. Whether this incident or non incident was related to that certaintly...we do not know at this stage.

Hi anonymous:

Thanks for the link to the CTV story. Ironic that it's CTV that is "debunking" this story and blaming it on a "tweet". I did not get the story from a "tweet" as I avoid "Twitter" like the plague it is. As well, CTV is one of the most blatantly propagandist of all the Western media and is flagrantly Ziofascist in all of its stories. Every single sentence could easily have "The US" or "The West" substituted for "Russia" and be more factual than the story as it unfolded.

I am still going to leave the story up because I feel we have NOT heard the end of this story. We all KNOW that there will be a false flag or an attack to disrupt the world cup. That is a given. This may have been a "drill" or an aborted False Flag.
May 19, 2018 at 7:25 PM

UPDATED: May 19, 2017 This is a very interesting story.  Although there has been no report in the Western Main$tream media backing up the original report...I left it up because there was something about it that seemed credible.  Maybe it was the actual pinpointing of the location of the attack..Avdeevka...or maybe it was the timing...just before the Russian World Football Championship.  We all know they're going to try and sabotage that event and most likely by fomenting new conflict in Ukraine.  So, I left it up.  But this morning my blogging colleague, Penny has placed a comment which gives more information regarding fighting going on in the very area where this incident was alleged to have occurred.  Please read Penny's comment and I will have more thoughts to follow:


Hey GC:

I looked around for additional reports on this news and your right- nadda
What is interesting is that area is active- there is fighting presently between the two sides
"In Donetsk sector, Russia-backed militants delivered 41 precision attacks. In the evening, militants attacked Ukrainian troops defending Avdiivka from the occupied Yakovlivka. They launched 10 Grad rockets, fired over 10 rounds from 120-mm mortars, and used small arms. “Russia-backed militants shelled Ukrainian troops’ positions near Vodiane, Mykolaivka, and Bohdanivka with 122-mm artillery and used Minsk-proscribed 82-mm and 120-mm mortars near Opytne, Vodiane, Lebedynske, and Avdiivka. They also used an anti-aircraft mount ZU-23-2 outside Opytne and Avdiivka,” Colonel Hutsulyak elaborated.

Moreover, the enemy used grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms in Opytne, Vodiane, Hnutove, Novohnativka, Avdiivka, Lebedynske, Nevelske, Maryinka, Mykolaivka, Pavlopil, Pisky, Verkhniotoretske, Pishchevyk, Krasnohorivka, and Kamianka areas.

Avdiivka is the same area your citing..

So, we've got a couple of options- they were actually killed in active duty- which Canada would cover up. Or they were laying the mines themselves and something went wrong- which Canada would also cover up.

So Penny very astutely sums up what likely happened over in Avdiivka.  Canada should not be interfering in the civil war going on in Ukraine.  I have said that right from the beginning.  Our country has been taken over by the neocon warmongers and is being used as a tool to instigate killing and destruction in Ukraine.  Freeland the pro-Nazi Sorosian agent is at the helm.  Le Dauphin is trying on a new suit and admiring himself in the mirror.  Hopefully, there will be more details coming out and I will add them when they do. 

A car with military instructors from NATO countries blew up on a minefield near Avdeevka. This was reported in the Operational Command of the Armed Forces of the People's Democratic Republic of Ukraine. "Today, during a visit by NATO troops to the military contact line, accompanied by Ukrainian law enforcers in the Avdeevka area, the command of the APU led the guests to a minefield where a car with foreigners was blown up by a mine. As a result, three NATO servicemen from Canada were killed and two from the US were injured, "it was reported. "Earlier we stated that the Ukrainian militants are preparing in the coming days a provocation against NATO servicemen who arrived to help the APU in the front.

The area where the incident took place is very close to the Donetsk/Lugansk border.  

Interesting that this breaking news story has not yet been published in the Western Main$tream Media Newz which is all wound up covering the latest Friday False Flag...this time a school shooting in Texas.

More to come.

Norman Finkelstein - the Intellectual scalpel that deftly slices through Ziofascist Psychopathy

Norman Finkelstein is interviewed 
about the genocidal State Oppression going 
on in Palestine [three part video interview]

Paul Craig Roberts alerted me to the three part video interview with US university professor Norman Finkelstein that is located at the previous link.  This is a "must watch" video.  Many geopolitical observers think that Jews are single-mindedly [without exception] psychopathic.  Norman Finkelstein is that marvelous exception that allows those of us who are so inclined to avoid tarring every single Jew with the black brush of tribal psychopathy.

The exceptions, like Finkelstein, Gilad Atzmon and a few others, unfortunately, shine out like diamonds in a pile of excrement. Finkelstein zeros in with his lazer-like analysis on the contention that Israel has the right to "reasonable" or "discriminate" force in order to control the Palestinians.  The Palestinian demonstrators, as he explains, are merely trying to escape from their open air prison/concentration camp... which has been formally condemned by UN health agencies to be "unsafe for humans" due to water contamination.

Finkelstein carefully examines the rights of the Palestinians versus the "rights" of the Israelis...before concluding that the Israelis only possess ONE right.  That is "The Right to Leave".

In order to understand the tribal psychopathy driving Ziofascist American and Israelis Jews to eternally and relentlessly drag humanity towards WWIII, I recommend reading today's post by Northerntruthseeker.  It puts Finkelstein's legalistic analysis into a psychological framework.  But it is important to remember heroes like Finkelstein do exist...when reading the analysis linked to in NTS's post.

My contention is that when humanity comes down to the final strokes in this world wide will be the heroes in the Jewish community....and the few lucid leaders left in the occupied American nation [NOT Putin or Russia] who will, at long last, rise up and force the psychopathic evildoers in USrael and in Israel to activate the only right that they are entitled to:  The Right to Leave.

The "Repugnant" American

John Bolton, American National "Security" Advisor

The Ugly American was a book published in 1958 which dealt with the US diplomatic failures in Southeast Asia.  This book, published as it was prior to the debacle of the Vietnam War...seems to have taught nothing to successive USrael governments.  In fact, quite the opposite.  Now, exactly 60 years after "The Ugly American" was published, we have an escalation from "ugly" to "repugnant", courtesy the quintessential failed "diplomat", John Bolton.  Here is a  the recent statement of the DPRK which I found on an analysis by Moon of Alabama.  Please read and I will have more comments to follow:


"....It is absolutely absurd to dare compare the DPRK, a nuclear weapon state, to Libya which had been at the initial stage of nuclear development.

We shed light on the quality of Bolton already in the past, and we do not hide our feeling of repugnance towards him.

If the Trump administration fails to recall the lessons learned from the past when the DPRK-U.S. talks had to undergo twists and setbacks owing to the likes of Bolton and turns its ear to the advice of quasi-"patriots" who insist on Libya mode and the like, prospects of upcoming DPRK-U.S. summit and overall DPRK-U.S. relations will be crystal clear.

We have already stated our intention for denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and made clear on several occasions that precondition for denuclearization is to put an end to anti-DPRK hostile policy and nuclear threats and blackmail of the United States...."


Greencrow says:  Bolton has been put back into a position of power for one reason and one reason protect the posteriors of the many mass murderer planners of the 9/11 atrocity and keep the long arm of the law as far from them as possible.  Bolton was one of a handful of key organizers of the 9/11 False Flag event which led directly to the invasion of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, etc., etc.

Bolton wants to make sure that, under the blithering Trump, "Peace" doesn't accidentally break out... in the contrived future war zones of the Middle East or elsewhere, in this case, North Korea.  You see, folks, should PEACE break out...should there be a lull in the permanent wars being would be difficult, if not impossible to continue the concealment that the United States of Israel is:

1) broke;
2) technologically floundering and lost...particularly in its chosen sphere of endeavour...war weaponry;
3) Run by crooks and mobsters...with a totally corrupt government, judicial system, security/policing system;
4) Led by a moron in the middle stages of dementia;
5) Hated all over the world...a world which is increasingly coalescing against it;
6) inhabited by an increasingly awake, angry and frustrated population.  This is a population which sees unarmed citizens beaten to death by SWAT team local police forces....meanwhile, vicious, imbecilic mass murderers [such as Bolton] not only go free...but are appointed to high government positions where they can continue the cover-up of their 9/11 deeds AND drag the world into WWIII--which they need due to: [see nos. 1 through 5] above.

So, folks, of course Bolton doesn't want any peace agreement to emerge from the communications now going on between North, South Korea and USrael.  He doesn't want to allow Americans to catch a breath between wars and try to clean up the Augean Stables of rotting mass murderer carcasses now stinking up the City of Washington, DC....  No.  Bolton is covering his own @$$ and those of the Clintons, the Bushes, the PNAC criminal cabal and all the other fraudsters, hitmen and pedophiles.  Here's a video from PressTV which shows just how stupidly transparent his modus operandi is:

No Summit with North Korea
if US insists on "denuclearization"

But "stupidly transparent" has been working for Bolton and his fellow mass murderers ever since the events of September 11, 2001.  So why should he change gears now?

CawRANT Events #64

CawRANT Events #64

Good morning Everybody!  It is a blazingly hot and sunny day on the West Coast.  We've had unprecedentedly warm weather for a week now and it seems like mid-summer.  Even the forest fire situation is getting serious!  I have not been able to blog for about the same amount of time...due to a confluence of several unsettling factors more or less out of my control.  Firstly, one of my three small dogs, Daisy, broke her right foreleg just below the shoulder.  It has been back and forth to the vet.  She had a small operation where a pin was inserted.  All went well for a week and then, to everyone's surprise, the pin broke inside her arm and now the arm is now broken again and a major operation with the insertion of a "clamp" with "screws" is the next option.  I will find out today when it will happen and how much it will cost...I've already spent $3,000!  It is very depressing.  Also, we have had two house guests for 10 days.  Relatives from Sweden.  So I have been hosting and showing people around the city.  Last Saturday night we had 16 guests for dinner!

The two guests are leaving today at noon and I will have one day of "rest" and then we get another houseguest--my older sister coming from Ontario.  She will be staying seven days.  I will be glad when I get my house back and can settle into my regular routine again.

I started this CawRANT yesterday but the vet situation with my dog pulled me away.  So now I'm going to try and finish it.  There are a lot of topics to cover so better get started.

First of all, here in Vancouver, the local crisis over the proposed doubling/extension of the Transmountain pipeline route through Burnaby is still going on with continued extortion/exorbitant gas prices of $1.54 per litre.  The latest news is that the current mayor of Vancouver...who is not running for re-election in the mayoralty election that is now going on--presumably he has already set his sights on a higher office--has said that the "Kinder Morgan" pipeline will not get built, based on the resistance on the ground.  There is a lot of environmentalist opposition on the ground...but when did that ever stop the PTB?  As I've said before....the pipeline WILL be built...but, at least, Vancouver should get a better deal from Kinder the company burying all the transmission lines that go along the pipeline route...that will create a huge nature park walkway within the city.

Also in Canadian newz...yesterday we had a.....

Peter Dalglish Update

This is the NGO creep who diddled little third world boys he was supposedly mentoring and giving a "leg up" in the world...taking them into his home and/or sending them on trips around the world [trafficking?] .  According to the latest report, this Canadian friend/acquaintance of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (as shown in an undated photograph of the two of them together) Dalglish has been formally charged with raping two boys who were found by police in his home in Nepal.  If convicted, he could spend 20 years in jail.  Of course the Canadian newz media has soft-peddled this story, including not asking le Dauphin about the photo...where it was taken and what the relationship between the two of them was/is.  The concern, of course, is that the creep was using his position in the NGO's he worked for...and his status with his "Order of Canada" medal to traffic children around the world for pedophiles.  The question needs to be asked--and answered.  In the good old days there would be a "Royal Commission" investigation...not any more.  It's all hush hush nowadaze.

The Skripal Scandal - Yulia and Sergei were "D-Memo-ed" by M16

Speaking of Hush, Hush.  It is absolutely breathtaking what has gone on with the so-called "Skripal poisoning" matter over in the UK.  Now that the incident has been successfully used to further demonize Russia...there has been a "cone of silence"  or, as they say in Jolly Olde, a "D memo" put on the matter.  Nobody in the newz media is supposed to say "boo" about it anymore...but the official version is still defended by the PTB and Russia is still "to blame". It is a lollapalooza of hypocrisy.  This, even though Yulia Skripal has not responded to a Face Book message from her cousin Victoria asking Yulia what she (Victoria) should do about Yulia's dog, which was placed in a kennel by Yulia prior to Yulia leaving for the UK and where the dog is still languishing some cost, one would suppose.

This latter fact supports my suspicion that Yulia and her father have gone to the same place as Robin Cook, MP, Dr. David Kelly, UN WMD inspector and Diana, Princess of Wales...and by the same M16 perps.  I suspect that Yulia's dad, Sergei, was a triple agent who had again switched allegiances and was going to [or had] supplied some information to Russia [perhaps in the hopes of being re-patriated to Russia].  Perhaps Yulia was helping her father in some way.  They were both considered expendable and were used to defame Russia before being eliminated and made an example of/cautionary tale for any other agents/or assets who might be thinking of switching sides.

Just as a pause in the is a very good Wood Relief Carving I recently found on Bruce Gagnon's anti-war blog called "Organizing Notes".  This was the information that accompanied the wood carving:
Though we don't usually see it, Navy sonar needlessly continues to do great harm to life in our oceans. I say needlessly, because there are many measures the U.S. Navy could take to reduce that harm if it wished to, but with the arrogance of its upper level decision-makers, it simply refuses, and the harm continues on.... My just-finished relief sculpture on that subject.

"Collateral Damage" poplar wood, casein paint 14" h. x 26" w. x 2 1/8" d.

By Russell Wray from Hancock, Maine

"Collateral Damage"

Which reminds me.  I have updated my Arts and Crafts Page called "Greencrow Creative Resources" and have a few more of my recent smaller wood carvings up on the page now.  That's another occupation that has gone begging since the guests arrived and my dog became injured.  I have not been able to work on my crafts...DRAT!

Trump's Double Cross on the Iran Deal

As some have suspected, I believe that this double-cross was always in the cards.  It was just a way of delay and buying time--prior to the inevitable attack on Iran.  The United States can't make any agreements with any other countries.  Why?  Because, to do so would be to acknowledge that there was such a concept as "International Law" and that, most importantly, other countries possess rights...including the right to exist.  As USrael sees itself as the "exceptional" nation that means that it is the final arbiter of all laws and all rights.  Nobody can make an agreement except other laws exist except those that support the agenda [as it stands on any given day] of USrael.  This flagrant dismissal of all law and all power other than their own must be exercised on a regular basis--so that the world can be reminded of who calls the shots.  Dismissing laws and negotiated agreements is like a "drill" that must take place regularly--and serves the same purpose as a "legal precedent" which provides a template for future international activities.  As in..."Oh yes, we forgot...the United States doesn't have to follow the dictates of the United Nations, the World Trade Organization or any other body of law." Or, as in "How else would the world know that USrael was entitled to break the law...unless they regularly broke the law?"

Obstruction of Justice of the Mainstream Media

Speaking of breaking the law...some lawyers in New York City are trying to organize a grand jury to investigate the atrocity of 9/11.  Well, I say, good luck with that one.  It would appear they're trying to come at the investigation from a different angle...they want to look into "obstruction of justice of the Mainstream Media".  This was a crucial element for how the perps got away with the mass murder...they controlled the media and saw that the media relentlessly and invariably pushed the "official story".

I have long ago given up that the United States has the power, the motivation or the ethics to find out the truth and punish the perpetrators of 9/11.  Even the so called "good" people don't want to know the truth...they can't handle the truth.  Hey, the official story solves so many problems for so many keeps the sheeple happily watching their TV "reality" shows...and keeps "(s)elected officials" tinkering and playing with the deck chairs on the USSN "Titanic".  Most of keeps the economic engines of the failing war-based economy grinding and sputtering on.  Endless wars for resources and to use up the garbage military equipment.  I would like to know the percentage of Americans who are working either directly or indirectly for military/industrial complex employers...including the health care "industry" which has been dumbed down to force young people to join the armed forces to get decent medical insurance/Veterans benefits.  I bet it's over 75%.  Perhaps one of my American readers could let me know.

Which also begs the question of my final RANT topic....

How many have been killed in post 9/11 Wars?

U.S. air strike in Kobani, near the Turkish-Syrian border in 2014

"...bombs bursting in air
Gave proof through the night
That Our Flag was still there...."

The Truthseeker.UK had an interesting article the other day that tried to put a number on all the deaths that occurred following the "gift that keeps on giving"...the 9/11 atrocity.

Coincidentally, writer, Nicholas JS Davies has estimated that around six million people have perished in the perpetual wars on Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.  Coincidence, because this is the same much vaunted number put out by Israelis for why they have to destroy the indigenous peoples of Palestine to create their so-called state [which is not a true state because the Israeli government refuses to set permanent borders]...wanting to crush the entire Middle East, balkanize it and run a tyranny over it...including this village which is almost entirely made up of amputees.

It doesn't matter that the United States has admitted it attacked Iraq based on the lies of fact the fact that they didn't withdraw their forces after making such an admission supports my theory that they have to regularly break international codes of conduct, agreements, UN articles, whatever. They NEED to break the laws to reinforce that they are ABOVE THE LAW.

So, finally, we have six million and counting victims of the Permanent Wars Against Humanity [PWAH], based on the 9/11 atrocity...which, coinkadynkally, is the same number as the hypothetical and permanently unexamined but carved in stone "six million" dead.  One group of six million means nothing...the other group of six million is an excuse for endless death, tyranny, environmental destruction....a disaster for mankind. And today marks the 70th anniversary of the beginning of that disaster.  The Nakba.

So now I'll sign off and return to my own little crises...a dog with a broken leg and a seemingly endless parade of house guests...which may well infringe on my ability to blog in the near future. DRAT!!!
