Kurds "Homeland" on Syrian Oil Fields?

And just like that, Americans are loudly demanding that the Kurds in Syria be given a piece of Syria for their very own, so that they may have a ''Homeland".

The Kurds, a nomadic group of people who originated from the mountains of Iran and speak a language derived from Persian,  who "have no friends but the mountains", are being offered a piece of flat Syria land by the Americans.  Why?

Says Khaled Bizri:

The SDF was formed precisely to divide Syria from Iraqi, Turkish and some Syrian Kurds. Their location today is the oil region - which never saw a Kurd in its history. But the US does not care a damn who manages the oil and gas extraction so long as they are delivered free into the hands of its oil and gas monopolies - to which sane observers would remark, "Some hope."

Trump Tweets About Syria

The US ruling class has a habit of issuing unpopular edicts on Friday night or the eve of major holidays, under the assumption that Americans pay no attention to the "weekend news cycle".
Trump issued his withdrawal notice last night, late on Sunday. Was that under the assumption that it would take until Monday morning for Lindsey Graham and the rest of the neocons to sober up from the weekend?

It certainly seems that way to me. Trump's original declaration focused mostly on ISIS troops. He pointed out that Europe didn't want it's ISIS citizens back, so he was leaving them for Turkey to deal with. I took that to mean that Turkey could go ahead and slaughter them, without any outcry from the US/NATO occupiers. I wasn't going to shed any tears over them, either.

But, once Congress and the media woke up and sobered up Monday morning, the attacks started. They ignored ISIS and focused on the Kurds. "Think of the Kurdish children", blah, blah, blah. 

Then Trump backed down, as usual, issuing a bizarre tweet threatening Turkey and throwing in a line about his great and unmatched wisdom.
Say what? What was that about? Was it red meat to distract TDS sufferers, sending them barking off on a red herring path? 

Apparently, the troops have actually started pulling back. Will the Deep State have time to organize a "chemical weapons attack" to stop the withdrawal?

No wonder they're so furious.

Harris/Stephens- Another Step Towards Totalitarism

   9-11 served multiple functions, from enriching a small circle of well-placed wealthy friends, to providing justification for endless wars for oil to setting up a repressive bureaucratic apparatus in the US, (including the TSA, Homeland Security and NORTHCOM.)

   The trans agenda also serves multiple functions, from rolling back the rights and privileges gained by women in the last 50 years in the US, to enriching drug companies and plastic surgeons, to allowing the government to take control of people's perceptions and language.

   The Harris/Stephens case before the Supreme Court is presented by the self proclaimed Legitimate Media as a woman's rights issue, that is, whether women can be forced to wear skirts.
    This is a lie.

   The case is about a man who has no problem with the sex-based dress code at his place of employment.  His issue is that he wants to wear dresses, because he says that he is a woman.  His employer says that he is a man and cannot wear a dress to work.

   The Patriot Act, rolled out the week after 9-11, attacked our First Amendment rights to speak out and say what we believe to be true.

    The Supreme Court will be ruling in the Harris case on whether we can all be forced to say what we know is untrue.

     The trans agenda has been framed as a human rights issue, a liberal expansion of the rights of women to men who believe they are women.   It is mostly liberals who have adopted the cause, who vociferously defend their adoption as pure and true, and who viciously attack those people who prefer to remain Reality Based.

   Therefore, it is assumed that the conservative Supreme Court will not rule in favor of the trans-identified man.

    But this agenda is clearly fully backed and pushed by the ruling class. The media, the government,  schools,  NGOs, the medical industrial complex, sports,  the military, prisons, the police, social workers, libraries....are all onboard.   

   I predict that the Supreme Court will rule that all Americans must alter their language and their perception of reality to suit the demands of others.   And that the official media will spin this as a victory for human rights and a shocking decision for a ''conservative'' court to make.

   For a discussion with feminists who have filed an amicus brief with the Court, see here..

It Is Only Illegal and Corrupt If Trump Does It

My daughter, a good liberal on the Move On mailing list (which started after the failed impeachment of Clinton) told me that they started pushing for impeachment before Trump was even inaugurated, which even she thought was odd.
They haven’t stopped yet. It is disgusting, even if Reps say so.

If I hadn’t stopped voting, due to the unaccountable voting machines, I swear I would think about voting for Trump, just to watch the DNC minions and their Antifa Brownshirt troops lose what is left of their scrambled minds. But I know that voting is a ridiculous exercise in futility, and the talking heads on TV will tell us on Election Night next year who our ruling overlords have decided to put in the White House, so there is no point in playing their ”you get to decide” game.

The Ukrainian coup in 2014 was illegal. Putting Hunter Biden on the board of the fracking corporation was unethical and illegal.

The IMF funds to Ukraine were illegal, since IMF funds are not supposed to go to a country that is killing their own people.

Biden forcing the firing of the Prosecutor investigating his son was illegal, and using the (illegal) IMF funds to force it was unethical and corrupt, as well as illegal.

Trump withholding $10,000,000,000 in IMF from Ecuador to force them to withdraw political asylum from Julian Assange was corrupt and illegal.

The Dems were silent on that, as they were silent about the fate of that whistleblower, Julian Assange,  now being illegally held as a political prisoner in the UK, at the behest of the US, (also unremarked), while the UK leadership blathers on about condemning countries which oppress journalists. Which also goes unremarked.

The military aid which Trump supposedly held up to Ukraine is also illegal, since Ukraine is still killing their own citizens.

Neither the Dems nor the Reps oppose giving military aid to a Nazi-infested government which is shelling, torturing and murdering their own people.

We are ruled by crooks and criminals, who loot the people of the US and the world with impunity, and any talk of the law is a farce.

Don't Question Authority, Obey and Defend It

We thought that fascism would come carrying a Bible and wrapped in the American flag, but instead it is here screaming about social justice and waving a rainbow virtue flag.

   Question Authority turned into obey and hysterically defend Authority.

   If Big Brother tells you that men can be women, then, by God, men can be women, and anyone who questions that is a bigoted Hate Monger who deserves to be censored and deplatformed, if not hanged.

    "'Do you remember,' he went on, 'writing in your diary, "Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four"?'

'Yes,' said Winston.

O'Brien held up his left hand, its back towards Winston, with the thumb hidden and the four fingers extended.

'How many fingers am I holding up, Winston?'


'And if the party says that it is not four but five -- then how many?'


The word ended in a gasp of pain. The needle of the dial had shot up to fifty-five. The sweat had sprung out all over Winston's body. The air tore into his lungs and issued again in deep groans which even by clenching his teeth he could not stop. O'Brien watched him, the four fingers still extended. He drew back the lever. This time the pain was only slightly eased.

'How many fingers, Winston?'


The needle went up to sixty.

'How many fingers, Winston?'

'Four! Four! What else can I say? Four!'

The needle must have risen again, but he did not look at it. The heavy, stern face and the four fingers filled his vision. The fingers stood up before his eyes like pillars, enormous, blurry, and seeming to vibrate, but unmistakably four.

'How many fingers, Winston?'

'Four! Stop it, stop it! How can you go on? Four! Four!'

'How many fingers, Winston?'

'Five! Five! Five!'

'No, Winston, that is no use. You are lying. You still think there are four. How many fingers, please?'

'Four! five! Four! Anything you like. Only stop it, stop the pain!'

Hypocrisy On Parade, the Dems, Biden, Trump and Assange

   The latest media frenzy is about a "whistle blower" (CIA spy) in the Trump White House who informed Congress that Trump had asked the president of Ukraine to cooperate in an investigation of Biden corruption after the US-backed coup in Ukraine in Feb 2014.

   While most media attention at that time was about the Crimeans voting to leave the neo-Nazi coup government of Ukraine, and return to Russia, or about the east part of Ukraine which also voted to refuse governance by neo-nazis, very little imperial media attention was given to the the Nazis killing opponents and burning people alive in the Trade Union hall nor to the swift US corporate takeover of Ukrainian land and resources. 

  Monsanto, Cargill and other corporations moved in to take over the rich lands of Ukraine, long known as the "breadbasket of Europe".  GMOs had been banned in Ukraine, but post-coup, the laws were changed.

   Hunter Biden was given a plum position on the board of Burisma, a natural gas corporation, as the US pushed fracking in Ukraine.   Biden received monthly payments ranging between $50,000 and $166,000, although he knew nothing about energy or management, having only recently been kicked out of the US Navy for cocaine use.

    Joe Biden bragged in 2018 that he had withheld IMF funds from Ukraine until Poroshenko fired the chief prosecutor who was investigating the corruption of Burisma.

    This is ignored by the Dems, who have actually started impeachment proceedings against Trump, for the crime of saying "though" in his transition between talking about military aid to Ukraine (illegal, since Ukraine has killed 15,000 eastern Ukrainians and continues to bomb and kill them to this day),  and asking Zelensky for his help in the investigation into the Ukrainian help to Clinton in the 2016 election.   The Dems insist that the word "though" means that Trump was making a link between the (illegal) military aid and the legal help.

    The rampant hypocrisy of the Dems is starkly shown in these proceedings.

    Just as hypocritical was their complete silence in April, when the whistleblower Julian Assange was dragged from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, after Ecuador revoked his asylum.
    A $10,000,000 IMF loan to Ecuador followed that atrocity.

    Where was the concern of Dems about whistleblowers and bribes to foreign countries then?

    The hypocrisy is blatant and shameful.

Humans As Herd Animals

   I've been around a fair amount of herd animals in my life, so I know that herd animals like to stay with the herd.     The only way you will see a herd animal alone is if the other members have bullied them out of the herd.   They won't do it voluntarily.

    So there is no point in getting upset about humans going along with the herd, or with humans happily submitting to the herd leader.  That's just how it is, as disappointing as it seems.
   I used to wonder about England, back when the kings and queens decreed what their religion should be.   Get a Catholic queen and everyone had to be Catholic.  The Protestant takes over, and, boom, everyone's a Protestant.     How did the subjects like that?   I would have thought that they would have resisted, or been resentful, but  looking at the present day subjects of Empire, I can see that most people just accept whatever the Emperor tells them to accept, and they don't seem to mind, as long as the rest of the herd goes along.

    The newest decree from our rulers is to tell us that
 1) there is no such thing as biological sex and (conversely),  2) people can change sexes, by thinking themselves into another sex and 3) since there is no such thing as sex, then men can enter the spaces, sports, services and provisions that used to be solely for women.

    I find all of these decrees insultingly free from Reality, but most of the herd has adopted them easily.  How is this possible?  I doubt that any rulers of the past would have had the audacity to make such  mind bogglingly absurd claims.  If there is anything that all herd animals, as well as non-herd animals, do easily, it is to differentiate between the two sexes.  Even if we humans can't tell the difference, as for instance, in geese, the geese certainly can.

   A few humans have objected to this new decree, but the Establishment cracks down very strongly on dissidents and heretics.   They couldn't do it, of course, without the help of the members of the herd.  As horses bite and kick, hens peck and goats butt, the little Eichmanns of the world insult and threaten the targeted creature.   There is no way that our overlords could police the thoughts and language of billions of people, but their willingly submissive minions are happy to do it for them.

    80 years ago, as fascism consolidated its power and the peoples of Europe happily adopted it,  a despairing W. H. Auden woke a poem called Sept. 1, 1939,  with these concluding words, which I dedicate to heretics, dissidents and free thinkers...

''Defenceless under the night
Our world in stupor lies;
Yet, dotted everywhere,
Ironic points of light
Flash out wherever the Just
Exchange their messages:
May I, composed like them
Of Eros and of dust,
Beleaguered by the same
Negation and despair,
Show an affirming flame.''
