Odd now that you mention it.

By long-kniving Flynn, they [the Shadow Government] exposed their hand. Now, Trump has full executive powers to investigate the CIA and Mossad. Notice how there is sound and fury about "Russian influence" and utter silence on "Mossad" influence in our power structure?[1]
The real story is in what's not reported. It always is. Do people really think that the Mossad is a benign presence in the U.S., assisted by the ever helpful resident sayonim? And that the Russians represent some sort of unique malevolent threat to us? To civilization itself? Anti-Russian hysteria is just a distraction.

Just what does "our Greatest Ally in the Middle East" do to help us out in our unconstitutional war against Assad and decidedly iffy combat operations in Iraq? Inquiring minds want to know. Or is it rude to ask?

Moving along, the honey trap allegations of DHS Insider are not at all fanciful. Read up on the Japanese LDP relationship with Craig Spence. (The Mossad's involvement in such matters is an allegation made by a former CIA agent, Robert Steele. He says, among other things, that Mossad operated Lolita Island and this is reported by DHS Insider.)

The aforementioned Craig Spence is the man who ran a callboy ring for homosexuals in Washington, DC (this link republishing an early Washington Times article[2]) and had his mansion, where clients of the ring entertained themselves, wired for video and sound. The linked article does not connect the mansion to Spence but it was his as was later determined in the course of litigation involving him and the Japanese Liberal Democratic Party congressional representative.

It's a heck of a story that needs to be kept alive down through the centuries. Being a member of the Western elite political class seems to involve selection based on an interest in perversion.

UPDATE:

Further perusal of Mr. Makow's site shows that he publishes a lot of badly written hysteria about the Freemasons as well as pedophilia. I don't care for such law quality writing but Pizzagate is much in the news now and I think articles that even low-quality articles that shed light on it deserve to be published. The sculpture that adorns the house of John Podesta's brother house is just sick as is the stuff involving John's invitation to observe, one hopes, spirit cooking, about which the less you know the better. The point about blackmail operations in this post is still valid, so I'm leaving it up. Ditto for the point about the disparity between the treatment of Russia and Israel. If any nation can be said to play the U.S. like a mighty Wurlitzer it's Israel and the quoted text above makes a valid point that it is very odd that real influence or control on the part of Israel is ignored but fanciful, speculative, unproved interference by Russia is shouted to the sky.

An explanation of our Syria policy as good as any.

The CIA and Israel are responsible for the creation of Isis. Isis was created specifically to weaken Iran and destabilize Syria. It worked for awhile until Putin shored up Assad and bolstered Iranian Qud forces. The real reason you see such anti-Russian fever from both Schumer and McCain, Graham and Feinstein, is because the operation has blown up in our faces.[1]

Certainly, there is no satisfactory official explanation why we are spending billions to bring down Assad.

Let's go with this until a better one is offered.

Victor Orban on the open society.

Once upon a time, when the European democracies were at the apogee of their orbit. But since then the era of open societies dawned upon the Western part of Europe and over the great ocean, too, and gave birth to their thought police: political correctness.

Some years ago democracy was based on debate, precise measurements of pro and con arguments, open expression, free thoughts and associations, vibrant, encouraging innovative solutions, a lively intellectual life. That is why was so attractive to our gladly-visiting neighbors, pub-loving, café-gossiping Hungarian folk, too.

The new political system, the so-called “open society”, liquidated all of this. Instead of a debate-based democracy, a correctness-based democracy arrived. In the terrain of ideology, that meant the liberal intellectual trend turned against the ideal of democracy, that is, the majority-based ideal, against the will of the cohesive majority community.

In the political realm, the open society meant that the true power, decisions and influence, instead of residing with elected parliamentary representatives and governments, were put into the hands of unelected global network of people, to media gurus and the unelected international organizations, for whom nobody voted, and they outsourced it to their local offices.[1]

I always have wondered what Soros meant by his Open Society. It sounded nice but floated aimlessly like a balloon with no antecedents and nothing familiar to it. Western nations with traditions of free speech and intellectual inquiry seemed already to provide all that is deceptively hinted at in Soros's phrase but they, to him, are not only inadequate but must be uprooted completely. "Open Society" thus signifies total destruction of the familiar in favor of some vague new thing that nonetheless involves repression and national suicide. Progressivism.

It has been a comforting thought of most of my life that modern Western nations all involved at their core a rational, often incremental improvement in the lives of their citizens, notwithstanding periods of great folly and actors entering the stage offering instead insanity and great evil. Inevitably, the ship would find its correct course even though no human society can insulate itself from decadence, corruption, or evil.

Needless to say, not much can be said in defense of such a view. Western nations have, even in times of great prosperity and relative peace, been blind to the plain evidence of treason and subversion, and devoted to a leadership class and geist that are simply lunatic.

Astute observation.

I hope that Europeans realize that your fight against islamization is really a fight against communism. if you continue to elect leftists you will continue to be colonized. it is not the governments of the islamic countries that are sending their citizens to your countries. it is you leftist politicians that are BRINGING the muslims to [your] counties. the leftist politicians in the united states have been doing the same with central and south American colonists since the 1980s.

Would that [Valerie] Jarrett had received as much media scrutiny of her role in eight years under Obama as Bannon has in less than four weeks.[1]

You'll remember Jarrett as the woman with a communist grandfather and communist father-in-law. As Remus likes to say, it was in all the papers.

A recent comment of mine on Islam and the West.

I cross post most of my articles on Liberty's Torch thanks to the kindness of Fran Poretto and take much time to comment at length elsewhere on the web. More often than not I neglect my own blog and I think I should reproduce some of those comments just to have more content here.

This is a comment I just posted over on Liberty's Torch that states the essence of my views on mass Muslim migration to the West and the insanity of the Treason Class in promoting and defending it:

It's a philosophically confused Western world these days, is it not?

As I say ad nauseum, the existence of huge numbers of foreigners inside your borders was throughout human history considered a disaster, a result of the catastrophic failure of the armies of the nation or the tribe. Today, the Treason Class trumpets this as an unalloyed blessing.

Similarly, the Muslim who daily says

(1) my religion dictates the establishment and preservation of a savage, rotting, moribund culture;

(2) you are filth;

(3) slavery, sexual mutilation, child abuse, and war on the infidel are acceptable and expected;

(4) vigilante murder of apostates is required; and

(5) infidel laws and customs are garbage

is embraced as a precious being, simply an amazing gift to any Western country.

Not only do the Treason Class (the globalists, the George Soroses, the Barbara Spectres, the Merkels, the Loefvens, and the Peter Sutherlands) embrace the unvarnished Muslim knowing full well the putrid reality of the breed but they hunt down and persecute anyone who dares to reveal the truth, who objects to extinguishment and dhimmitude and to the snipe hunt for that most elusive of creatures, the "moderate Muslim."

Swift captured a sliver of this madness in his depiction of the floating island of Laputa though even there he was only focusing on folly not malevolence and treason.

On the matter of "provocation."

Here's something to keep in mind as you digest the current cable news hysteria about the "provocation" of the supposed Russian surveillance vessel in international waters off of our east coast:
This may be of comfort to those who worry at the prospect of war. Yet the threat inflation that keeps the wheels turning can carry us toward catastrophe. Among the token vessels deployed to reassure Eastern European NATO countries have been one or two Aegis Destroyers, sent to patrol the Baltic and Black Seas. The missiles they carry are for air defense. Yet the launchers can just as easily carry nuclear or conventional cruise missiles, without any observer being able to tell the difference.

Bruce Blair, who spent years deep underground waiting to launch nuclear missiles and now works to abolish them, foresees frightening consequences. As he told me, “Those destroyers could launch quite a few Tomahawk cruise missiles that can reach all the way to Moscow. You could lay down a pretty severe attack on Russian command-and-control from just a couple of destroyers.” This, he explained, is why the Russians have been aggressively shadowing the ships and buzzing them with fighter planes at very close quarters.[1]

Official fairy tales – episode 11,462.

From an excellent article on the long history of exaggerating the Soviet/Russian threat (and the less than stellar record of accomplishment by our military-industrial complex):
Russian military “more or less” back in working order doesn’t sound much like an existential threat, nor like one in any shape to “erode the principled international order.”[1] That has not deterred our military leadership from scaremongering rhetoric, as typified by Philip Breedlove, who stepped down as NATO’s commander in May. Breedlove spent much of his three-year tenure issuing volleys of alarmist pronouncements. On various occasions throughout the Ukrainian conflict, he reported that 40,000 Russian troops were on that nation’s border, poised to invade; that regular Russian army units were operating inside Ukraine; that international observers were reporting columns of Russian troops and heavy weapons entering Ukraine. These claims proved to be exaggerated or completely false. Yet Breedlove continued to hit the panic button. “What is clear,” he told Washington reporters in February 2015, “is that right now, it is not getting better. It is getting worse every day.”[2]
I am not one ever to minimize the loathsome nature of the Soviet Union but reading this article I find it difficult not to separate the ridiculous demonization of Russia of today from even that practiced against the Soviets in Cold War times. Still, I thought then that the price of any insurance policy to protect against the expansion of the Soviet Union was worth paying and a vigorous military-industrial complex was fine by me.

Now Russia has zero expansionist plans (or dreams) and any "examples" thereof that the hystericals like to cite can reasonably be understood to be responses to NATO or U.S. provocations or actions undertaken at the invitation of the nation supposedly falling victim to Russia machinations. (Hint: Syria.)

There are genuine threats to our security but they are not coming from the direction of Moscow. Rather, they stem from a Treason Class that worships foreigners to the exclusion of Americans, gets all giddy over open borders, and cannot see that we are facing an existential threat in the form of Islam -- not "radical jihadist Islamism" -- and that the presence of even one Muslim believer inside our borders is a threat to our security. A harsh assessment it's true, but one a lot less stupid than the idea that there are moderate Muslims and that Islam is a religion.

Notes
[1] This "principled international order" includes the unconstitutional and aggressive war waged by the U.S. against the soveign state of Syria apparently, though clearly Mr. Cockburn doesn't quote that phrase for anything other than purposes of making an ironic point.
