UPDATED (1/11): Is Diana West Investigating ‘Just Another Mouth in the Republican Fellatio Machine’? Dunno

Argument, Conservatism, Conspiracy, Government, Israel, Law, Political Philosophy, Sex, The State

People who are killed or entombed by the state’s emissaries are usually not that powerful

Diana West, one of the few writers with whom I check back every now and then as she deserves dwindling energies, offers this tease on her website:

I decided to take the Whitney Webb challenge and fact-check the endnotes of her new book, ‘One Nation Under Blackmail (Vol. 1).’ Here, at my Patreon channel, are my initial results.

The link takes the reader to Diana’s Patreon home, to which, alas, one has to sign up.  “Signing-up” always feels like “signing away” something or another.

The Patreon post is titled “Fact Checking [Whitney Webb’s’] Salacious Endnotes (Someone’s Gotta Do It).”

No idea what Diana found, but I know that the low-watt Webb woman doesn’t warrant my own energies. Most of the Internet’s news porn does not. Quality output, my own, over decades without much appreciation exhausts. Worthy individuals will find that fact worth respecting, and recognize that I’m uninterested in addressing the Internet’s commentary crap or the dummy du jour, anointed fleetingly by elderly conservatives as Delphic oracle. Pelt me all you wish with questions about my own voluminous, wide-ranging writings—good or bad. Those I will happily address.

I’ve been around those fleeting brain infarcts long enough to ignore “Just Another Mouth in the Republican Fellatio Machine” (Yes, that title found a home <smile.> And, by the way, where is S.E. Cupp?)

These days, American publishers, as anatomized in the Foreword to Into the Cannibal’s Pot, published on VDARE, no longer publish important texts, but, rather, those written by popular dummies, as determined and selected according to social-media following and favor curried with equally loud, influential, TV mouths, for this reason:

Sidekick X, Y, Z (mostly interchangeable) is on TV, weighing in on weighty matters, because however hard she and her ilk try, they cannot outsmart their hosts

I can’t say for sure, and I might be wrong—but, from her use of “salacious,” I gather Diana is unimpressed.

A solid reference with respect to the Security and Surveillance State is Glenn Greenwald (if raw intelligence matters any more). He’s a good investigator, whose end-notes are unlikely to be “salacious”, and, to the extent his theoretical constraints allow—his deductions too are solid. Greenwald’s best work, of course, was in facilitating Edward Snowden’s revelations—not that it did any long-term good—and ferrying him to safety.

Thank You For Your Service, Mr. Snowden

Naturally, I’ll listen to Diana’s dispassionate analysis pertaining to said end-notes if she provides it.

However, an author can provide end notes that check out, while still using the data to string together a poor, phantasmagorical thesis. Thus, Diana’s verdict matters on the matter of the data, but  this will not change my own sense of the “thesis” underlying Webb’s Epstein, Israel and Ghislaine Maxwell nexus:

My antenna is not even up. The root of all evil is not in Epstein and his ho. Did they serve the powerful? Yes. Did they imagine they were powerful? I suppose. They are both dead–Ghislaine, poor woman, is as good as dead.

In this connection, an important book to write would be on the loss of due process and the rules of evidence. Paul Craig Roberts wrote the first installation. It is he, not dumbo distaff at large, that ought to be paid to write a second volume, analyzing as I often do, the final death knell dealt to Law by MeToo movementarians, the same species of “due process” that has entombed Maxwell.

In all, people who are killed or entombed by the state’s emissaries are usually not that powerful.

As I say in my blog post, “Ghislaine Maxwell: Not Evidence-Based Law, But MeToo, Sexual Moral Panic,” I didn’t support the couple’s prosecution.

Consider: Matt Gaetz is also libeled now as a so-called pedo, for cavorting with young greedy gals. Mind you, he’s been smeared as a sex trafficker, no less, since he traveled with one willing lass on an airplane. Crossing state lines with a young, willing woman I guess is a crime in Police State USA. Tragic.

The state, overt and deep, is corrupt, and that includes the Israeli state, although Israel distinguishes itself by not dispossessing its own; the Jewish state acts in self-interest. That’s the real scandal: the treason of the Anglo-European Axis. Anything else is a distraction to me.

UPDATED (1/11): Diana West, author of the simply superb American Betrayal, has promised to provide us with her forensic examination of the “history” of low-watt Whitney Webb. Not that I doubted them—but my instincts have been confirmed. Stay on this page.

UPDATED (11/28/022): The Curse of Ham: Pious Political Correctness Perverts The Hebrew Testament

Ancient History, Argument, Christianity, English, Hebrew Testament, Religion

If you are reading translations of the Tanach (acronym in Hebrew for all books of the Hebrew Bible: Pentateuch or Torah, Prophets and Writings)—you’re likely reading a lot of porcelainized nonsense

Funny thing how Christian commentary “changes” what my Hebrew Bible says, plain and simple. (I am sure politically correct, Americanized rabbis will join in this textual finessing.)

See, not only can I read Biblical Hebrew perfectly well—I’m looking at the tract now—but my Israeli teachers decades ago confirmed the commentary that claims Ham and descendants were cursed.

Ham did something unspeakable to his father, Noah. Noah, cursed him and descendants.

“And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.”

But not according to King James commentary, which is still better than most. Accordingly, the biblical author didn’t know what he was saying. Ham’s descendants were never cursed in the Hebrew Bible.

Yeah they were. It says so in Genesis 9:24.

That’s why I say: If you are reading translations of the Tanach (acronym in Hebrew for all books of the Hebrew Bible: Pentateuch or Torah, Prophets and Writings)—you’re likely reading a lot of porcelainized nonsense.

UPDATED (11/28/022): Interesting thread on LinkedIn.

ME: The biblical tract doesn’t say today’s blacks originated in Ham. And I, of course, claimed nothing of the sort. I said quite clearly that Ham and descendants were cursed in the Hebrew Bible, and pious scripture should not develop creative ways of pretending they were not.
I don’t know who Ham begot. I do know that his excuse-making defenders say he begot the greatest civilization ever. ? Why, of course. Next they’ll claim ancient Egyptians were really Africans. Wait a sec, they have already.
Ask Mary Lefkowitz, Greek classicist, author of “Not Out Of Africa: How “Afrocentrism” Became An Excuse To Teach Myth As History.”

 AND:

Yes, let us demonize non-aggressor Noah for objecting to his abuse. I have not disputed your point. I only questioned the hubbub of white-noise commentary around what seems to be straightforward biblical text.

UPDATED (11/21/022): Ignorant Mike Pence Pitches War Forevermore For Ukraine, Under The Defunct, Cold War Reagan Doctrine

America, Argument, Communism, Democracy, Donald Trump, Elections, Foreign Policy, Iran, Republicans, Russia

Another good reason to disqualify one more jingoist from office: Mike Pence is still working from the defunct, cold-war based Reagan doctrine

Mike Ponce tells Bret Baier, lightweight Fox News neoconservative host, that it is imperative the “United States and the new Republican majority continue to provide the Ukrainian people with the support they need to defend themselves.”

In other words, enable war forevermore for Ukraine, so its slimy leader, Zelensky, can continue to play his biggest role yet and is exempt from his duty to do diplomacy. (READ “It’s biblical, Zelensky: a leader who fails to haggle for the lives of his people is a failed leader.”)

Ponce spoke about the latest allegation against Russia, namely that of dropping ordnance on Poland, a NATO member. He spouted forth about an Article 5 obligation to go to war for Poland, and then further waffled in his best faux ponderous, presidential manner, that Russia ought to be “transparent” during the investigation into the origin of the bomb that fell on “Ukraine” (sic: it fell on Poland, Ponce). This, when the US is stoking the conflict as vociferously as Zelensky is.

“I’ve gone toe-to-toe with Putin,” bragged Ponce. He followed up with the cretin’s commonplace cliche: “Putin understands only strength.” Other than that Trump deployed the worst people during his term—Ponce stands as a reminder to Deplorables that he and Trump provided lethal arms to Ukraine.

Likely a liar, Pence blames Biden for restricting billions in military aid to Ukraine to “blankets and boxed meals.” Only he could truly support Ukraine in the style to which this little tinpot destination has become accustomed, argued Ponce, striking his best “I’m-presidential” pose possible.

We are informed that Pence and wife Karen visited Ukraine … blah blah blah, and he is thus in the position to advise that it is imperative that the USA continue to pump this great Democracy with funds to defend its great democracy.

Of course, the defending-democracy premise is one Tucker Carlson uses in his case against helping Ukraine. Carlson claims Ukraine is not a democracy, hence deserves no defense. Both Pence and Tucker use democracy to justify opposing policies: Democracy as a premise for or against war is wrong.

These discrepancies only expose the impoverished neoconservative nature of a foreign policy based on the US’s obligations to act in furtherance of democracy across the world.

“If you are willing to fight communists in your country; we’ll provide you the means”: Mike Pence says this is the Reagan doctrine to which he subscribes.

Right there is another good reason to disqualify one more American jingoist from office. Putin’s Russia is not communist; it is a traditionalist, reactionary, Russian Orthodox favoring authoritarian state. Pence is still working from the defunct, cold-war based Reagan doctrine.

This man, Pence, holds a neoconservative foreign policy and believes his duty is to Ukraine, not the people of the US, deplorables in particular, whose freedoms are curtailed stateside.

UPDATE (11/21/022): The impoverished neoconservative foreign policy habit-of-mind ingrained in Mike Pence is on display in other characters with whom Trump surrounded himself. Some of these made an appearance at the recent Republican Jewish Coalition conference.

Beware of Mike Pompeo and Nikki Haley.

What has been said here about Mr. Ponce easily applies to “Mike Pompeo, Trump’s hand-picked secretary of State and CIA director” and Nikki Haley, Trump’s U.N. ambassador, who is threatening to win the next presidency. She also bragged that “she’s ‘never lost an election and [is] not going to start now.’”

Both Pompeo and Haley are known for their robotic sloganeering against Bashar al-Assad’s more enlightened Alawite regime—Syria’s Christians simply love him—Putin’s Russian Orthodox traditionalist rule, and the impoverished Iran.

If I hear Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — “Trump’s most formidable potential rival right now” — agitating against the long-suffering people of Iran; I’m done voting GOP.

This axis of evil, Israel and America, are aligned against the Christian-Shia-Alawite alliance. This axis has formed a protective perimeter around Sunni rebel holdouts, who are not the good guys. As I wrote in “Lies About Putin, Syria & The Alawite (Iranian) Alliance,”

Under Putin’s protection, the more civilized Alawite minority (read higher IQ), which has governed Syria since 1966, is in charge again. Duly, reports the anti-Assad Economist, “Government departments are functioning. … electricity and water supplies are more reliable than in much of the Middle East. Officials predict that next year’s natural-gas production will surpass pre-war levels. The railway from Damascus to Aleppo might resume operations this summer. The National Museum in Damascus, which locked up its prized antiquities for protection, is preparing to reopen to the public.” …
… Infested as it is by globalist ideologues, the permanent establishment of American foreign policy refuses to consider regional, religious, local, even tribal, dynamics in the Middle East. In particular, that the “good” guys in Syria—a relative term—are not the Islamist “rebels,” with whom the [neoconservatives are] forever frolicking; but the secular Alawites, who are allied with Shia Iran against the onslaught of the Sunni fundamentalist majority.

… the endangered Alawite minority formed an alliance with the Iranian Shia, also a minority among the Ummah. Now, civilized and secular Syrians want their country back. In fact, many Syrian “Sunnis prefer Mr. Assad’s secular rule to that of Islamist rebels.”
