Assange: Google Is Not What It Seems By Julian Assange Filed: 10/23/14 at 12:47 PM http://www.newsweek.com/assange...
And don't tell me when goggle did its 'results refinement' 5 or so years ago it didn't deliberately bury 'original source' (official documents) links on the Israel issue under 200,000 shit piles of 'Israel source' results. It did. I watched it happen. - American

U.S. publicly humiliates Israeli defense minister as state visit ends - Diplomacy and Defense Israel News | Haaretz
"Ya'alon claims bad blood between him and the Obama administration was over, but learns they leaked that he was denied an audience with senior officials, upon returning to Israel." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"The White House refused to give Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon an audience with Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and National Security Advisor Susan Rice during his state visit to the United States this week, senior American officials confirmed Friday. The reason for the cold shoulder was a number of statements Ya'alon made six months ago, in which he criticized the Obama administration and Kerry in particular." - Sean McBride
"Speaking in the same conference Ya'alon said that if the administration continues to show weakness on the international stage, American national security would suffer a great blow. “If you sit and wait at home, the terrorism will come again,” he said. “Even if you hunker down, it will come. This is a war of civilizations. If your image is feebleness, it doesn’t pay in the world. Nobody... more... - Sean McBride
That sure sounds like a *threat*. - Sean McBride
Yea it does..... the ideal cure for Israel would be an entrapment--- let Israel proceed with a false flag terrorist attack on the US and then expose them right before they carry it off. Of course there would have be actual Americans in the NSA and CIA and no Israeli agents within those agencies to be able to do that. - American

"In 2011, the Alliance of Youth Movements rebranded as “Movements.org.” In 2012 Movements.org became a division of “Advancing Human Rights,” a new NGO set up by Robert L.

The World's 2,325 Billionaires Have These 14 Traits In Common: http://www.businessinsider.com/billion...
Hey Sean, I've put this up cuz you're so fond of lists. - Taxi
Pretty much every time I see a list now I think of Sean McBride :-) - Taxi
I'd like to affectionately nickname Sean: 'Dr. Listtt'. - Taxi
Actually, interesting article -- I didn't realize that Europe has more billionaires -- 775 -- than any other region of the world. (But the US has more billionaires than any other nation -- 571.) - Sean McBride
Lists that are machine-readable, machine-interoperable and machine-inferencable are useful for a wide variety of reasons -- especially as knowledge discovery tools. - Sean McBride
I wasn't a fan of the list, but a useful tool. just need to learn how to compare them more effectively. - Chu_
Lists are a tool for bringing order and clarity to facts -- to better understand them -- to uncover patterns and make connections in complex data. And they are the backbone of contemporary artificial intelligence, data mining and Semantic Web technologies. - Sean McBride
Mondoweiss has always appealed to me because Phil Weiss's mind is oriented around precise collections of concrete facts -- the same for Glenn Greenwald. Windy discursive opinionating interests me not so much -- once I get the point, I move on. Opinions and arguments are datapoints. - Sean McBride
"Opinions and arguments are datapoints." Interesting way to view things-not natural to me, but I'm open to learning. - weareone
phil does a lot of opinion, greenwald is more data driven. - Chu_
Without all the data that Phil wraps his opinions around, Mondoweiss would not be very interesting. Opinions are a penny a dozen. Review his posts -- they are all anchored around valuable collections of facts that are usually suppressed, censored or ignored by the mainstream media. - Sean McBride
good part is that he is an inside man in many ways. - Chu_
It is helpful to think of lists as sets in traditional set theory -- with complex set intersections one can uncover and understand the operations of barely visible or invisible social networks -- to see the real lay of the land. - Sean McBride
That tableau software seems like a very useful graphing tool/visualizer.so much - Chu_ from Android
On opinions and arguments as datapoints: once an opinion or argument has been clearly enunciated, there is no need to see it over and over again -- you've got it. What is of interest are new facts which pertain to opinions and arguments -- which tend to reinforce or undermine them. - Sean McBride
Also of interest: the number of times that an opinion or argument is expressed in the world or in certain communications channels over time -- but that boils down to a single number or trendline. - Sean McBride
For instance, the intersection of three sets: - Sean McBride
c; PNAC member+JINSA member+Washington Post writer; * // where {c; *category1+*category2+*category3; *instance} and "+" defines a boolean AND relation -- all three conditions must be true. - Sean McBride
To be able to know such things immediately, on demand, is useful. - Sean McBride
I think Phil keeps his article writing factual, he's an excellent writer, l but I don't think his 'opinions are always based on the facts---he sees what he wants to see quite often, what he wishes to believe. - American
Phil has had a much greater impact on the conversation on these issues globally than any of his detractors. He produces superior content on a regular basis -- that is incredibly difficult to do. If you doubt this, try to set up a blog or website that draws the same level of traffic and engagement. - Sean McBride
The best description of Phil's problem, the one that prevents him from 'really seeing' the Jewish problem was the one by NorthOfFortyNine June 23, 2011, 1:38 pmI ---->""At the risk of offending, I sometimes feel like Phil is saying, as though referencing a saturday morning cartoon: “Jews have special powers. Zionists use these special powers for evil. Me? I want to use them for good! To the Batmobile!” - American
Hey I just read that too - put a smile on my face. So whoever posted the gilad interview on mw, thanks - great read. - Taxi
That was indeed a great line by Northof49 - Danaa
Danaa, if you like quote about Phil you will love this one. Chris Moore posted on his site when featuring the MW-Slater vr the commenters big fight on Just War-------->'' Even though I totally disagree with Weiss' left-wing politics (which even he doesn't seem to take very seriously, anyway) guys lake Weiss make me believe there are at least a handful of semi-patriotic, America-first... more... - American
The on- going $64,000 question on what Phil really is/believes. Does it matter?---not really - American
Phil lives in inner turmoil - he knows deep down that he's a jew living a WASP life. but he's also pleasantly numbed by his golden goy life. Phil is torn between individuality and group/tribe/gang. He really prefers the 'individuality' thang (because he's comfortably numb) but there's this constantly recurring weird group/tribe/gang thing that keeps talon-clawing at his naval for... more... - Taxi
So where do I collect my $64,000 from, American? - Taxi
Hummm....we will have to crowd fund the 64K - American
Maybe Phil secretly likes WASP culture, wants to be like them. And why he writes about it a love -hate way.. But to renounce Jewish culture would be too big a treason against his upbringing and heritage.And he couldnt ever really be a WASP, only a convert, like gentile converts to Judaism. - American
I'd be gobsmacked if "we" could raise more than 64 cents lol! Just kidding kiddo. - Taxi
The American Dream was not conceptualized by jews or blacks or asians but by WASPS. Would you call this a correct statement of fact? - Taxi
For the most part, but I wouldnt say WASP (as in elites) I would say mainly European Anglo Saxons since that was the majority and what all the 'Founders' were-----one clue to that is the fact that the 'law' and legal system in the colonies was based on "Black's Law', brought over from England, where it was the basis of what we call 'Common Law'---its still the basis of the US legal system. - American
Everyone wants the American Dream, buddy. It's as far as it goes - the penultimate. Jews here are no different - they want the American Dream too. There is no such thing as the jewish dream that everyone wants. - Taxi
It's past midnight here in the sleepy hills of the Levant - g'night. - Taxi

Why Was the NSA Chief Playing the Market? Newly released documents show the NSA chief was investing his money in commodities so obscure that most financial pros stay away.
Read the whole report. I told you the NSA spying would be used for financial gain. And you can be sure the Israelis are financially using everything NSA gives them even more so.------http://www.foreignpolicy.com/article... - American
''At the same time that he was running the United States' biggest intelligence-gathering organization, former National Security Agency Director Keith Alexander owned and sold shares in commodities linked to China and Russia, two countries that the NSA was spying on heavily.

Israel and Palestine is not about Jews vs. Palestinians - http://mondoweiss.net/2014...
Samantha Brotman shares her remarks from an event called "Zionism & The New McCarthyism: A Conversation with Bruce Robbins" that took place in Champaign-Urbana. It was a canceled University of Illinois event that was rescheduled as an independent event, without university support. Bruce Robbins's short documentary, Some of My Best Friends are Zionists, interviews influential Jews such as Judith Butler and Tony Kushner who discuss the repression of anti-Zionist viewpoints. His talk addressed the rise of a "new McCarthyism" on college campuses which threatens to shut down criticism of Israel in the guise of “civility." Brotman was a respondent along with Jodi Byrd (Professor in American Indian Studies) and Bruce Levine (Professor of History).
I have to label this hasbara on account of the CZ as the 'real power' for Israel. I have only disdain for the CZs and would be happy to indict them even more ' IF' someone can back up their claims that CZ started Jewish Zionism and 'have connections to the highest levels of US policy making'' with names and examples of CZs having the power to write bills and have congress sign them for... more... - American

Chu posted this link down in another post and its a keeper to bookmark or read if anyone hasn't. That was the 'good ole days' of MW.......that are no more. - American
And it was probably the most revealing of each commenters ideology than hardly any other discussion. Sadly the most intelligent are gone now. - American
I give Northoffortynine the award for settling the Phil question----->NorthOfFortyNine June 23, 2011, 1:38 pmI ....'' At the risk of offending, I sometimes feel like Phil is saying, as though referencing a saturday morning cartoon: “Jews have special powers. Zionists use these special powers for evil. Me?

Danaa, in the comments from 2011: "Sadly the covenant for the secular jews often just means a free-for-all license. It means they can all take credit for Einstein but shoulder none of the blame for Madoff." - pepsi
religious Jews are no better, and their Talmud didn't 'moderate' anything from the torah. - pepsi
And although I am losing interest in MW I am still curious about who the Donald freak really is, he is truly a slimy character and his obvious influence with MW tells us a lot about why so many intelligent commenters have left-----> Donald June 23, 2011, 2:47 pm I just read your link, Tom. I’d never heard of this guy until I came to this blog, but he does seem pretty close to Holocaust denial there and so I’m not sure why Phil wants to have anything to do with him'' - American
I think Donald was among those who had a lot to do with the MW bannings and taboo subjects. - American
I always said Donald was a plant. From day 1 he came in to nonchalantly to police the comments. Many would rag on him, and eventually Annie came to do the same. Donald 1.0 then Annie 2.0. But Annie is on the payroll there, so at least that is understood. Donald Johnson? yeah, and I'm Rico Tubbs Together we're Miami Vice. Donald said he had a subscription throughout the 80's to The... more... - Chu_
As the gentile commenters have de camped MW for the most part Annie has become more stupid and Stepford girl. In trying to think of anyone there now whose comments are worth anything I cant think of any except very, very, rarely one from MRW or Chu and maybe Cliff. - American
Philip Weiss June 28, 2011, 8:21 am I apologize to readers for the Holocaust denial that has proliferated on this thread. I need to go in later and censor it. We have a censorship policy about holocaust denial. I’m sure there are good historical reasons to dignify some questions about the Shoah. The emotional basis for a lot of this questioning sickens me, and assures me that our policy... more... - pepsi
tree June 28, 2011, 7:36 pm Add me to the list of those who don’t want to see any post facto censorship. Nothing here has been Holocaust denial, but even if it had, why is that subject to deletion, but Nakba denial and infinite varieties of racism against Arabs and Palestinians is not post-censored? - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2011... - pepsi
I didn't comment on that thread - haven't read all the comments yet to be sure. But I'd like to say that annie has several times said that she is not on the payroll. I don't go to mw much these days but when I have, it seems that her presence there is sparser than usual. Maybe she's fed up too and not too focused with her usual enthusiam. Donald is another matter - man I've had so many... more... - Taxi
For a dignified life, free speech is just as important as free movement. What's the point of being able to walk around freely if you're forbidden from expressing your thoughts. Mental prisoners are hell and I've really loathed Donald for being a willing jailer. - Taxi
I'm just remembering now that annie got into some trouble with adam for publishing some of my raging posts - he wrote me about it and said that I should tone down cuz I'm getting some mods into trouble too and I just know he was referring to annie cuz often when she mods my posts, she throws in a quick comment response. Even though I think I am more tolerant of 9/11, holocaust... more... - Taxi
I had my disagreements with Annie, but I agree that she is likely the best mod there is of them all. But she isn't on the payroll? what is she nuts. You couldn't pay me to do that job. I'd quit after reading through 3 of Jon S's annoying posts. Actually I'd delete all the troll comments. ~I probably wouldn't be the best pick for moderator. And I don't think Shmuel is a mod. He lives in Italy, but I don't really know the mysteries of the MW structural heirarchy. - Chu_
Yeah, what you say about the Donald is true. But if you think about it, Don is the model goy citizen on MW. Phil elevated him to pen articles and he surely earns his salt in the comments section. All the liberal Zios and trolls admire his persistence against anti-semitic sounding comments. He's a real 'care bear'. - Chu_
Yeah it seems like it's a case of labor of love for the cause of Palestine for annie. Also yeah I know shmuel lives in Italy - he's in the same time zone as me and I've seen him comment over the past two years enough times straight after a comment is cleared (like annie sometimes does) - he's fond of keeping me waiting while he clear zio comment after zio comment. That's why his name is on my list of suspected mods. - Taxi
I'm 99% sure shmeul is a mod - from observing the timing of his presence while posts are cleared for the past two years. - Taxi
I don't doubt it. You remember Avi? That guy was good. He should have been a mod! His fire kinda reminded me of you Taxi. And he knew good stuff. He once explained how possible motive for destroying the USS Liberty was that Israel executed Egyptian POW's held in Al-arish, but also said it may be cause Israel did not want the US to know about the invasion of the Golan Heights - AVi:... more... - Chu_
I also wanted to contact citizen. He feels the same way about many issues and is kinda stuck on MW. He was much more direct about things until moderation came, now he's hamstrung like the rest of us posting on MW. - Chu_
"Donald is another matter - man I've had so many run ins with the guy I've lost count! I too have thought he's a southern plant." What's a "southern plant"? - Todd
Hasbara with a drawl. That's what a "southern plant" is. - Taxi
Avi is great - one of my favs. oh god it makes me sooo mad cuz there were soooo many great people posting back in the day and I still maintain that the vibrancy and intellectual dynamism of mw posters back then was a HUGE-MASSIVE-MEGA factor in mw's success. What a shame that adam hates the whole blogging thing and has worked underhandedly to close it down by insisting on adding rule after rule after rule. Such an ungrateful squarehead! - Taxi
just like Josh Marshall, shutting down TPMCafe a few years ago. - pepsi
I haven't really bothered with MW since I was banned, but I never got the impression that many southerners posted there. I never had any feel for Donald either way. Maybe a southern Jew, but not typical for the Israel supporters that I have known. - Todd
Don't know anything about TPMCafe - got a link? - Taxi
Donald claims southernhood - christian southernhood. - Taxi
Here's Avi's comments. I used to check if he was around any longer, but his comments were screwy and could not be read. Anyway the fixed it with the new upgrade. http://mondoweiss.net/profile... - Chu_
It's possible, but he's not typical of the sort that I've known. - Todd
Didn't strike me as southern either. - Taxi
He talked about 'interfaith' groups and such a few times so he's probably all about rigid PC. - Taxi
Donald always talks about growing up in Jim Crow days and expressed his remorse for southern blacks. He is a critic of Israel often, but is entirely 'tuned' into Jewish sentiment and emotions. He often seems concerned about Palestinians plight, but often is more concerned about Jewish feelings on the matter first. - Chu_
Thanks for Avi's link, Chu. I never read him as "screwy", just as an honest Arab jew. Big difference between Arab jews and euro jews - like apples and prickly pears. - Taxi
I guess he could be an urban or suburban Episcopalian or Methodist type. We also have the passive aggressive dissenter tradition. - Todd
What state are you from Todd? - Taxi
oops. He wasn't screwy, but the page where his comments were were screwy. I wasn't able to read them. Avi always made a lot of sense. - Chu_
And yes, he was Mizrahim, so he definitely held a grudge against the Ashkenazi corrupt elite that run Isra-hell. - Chu_
He sure did make deep sense, that Avi. Owhhhhh Avi, Avi, where art thou?! - Taxi
I think he was trying to get out of Israel and get citizenship in Canada. Hope he made it. - Chu_
Georgia - Todd
Georgia - nice! - Taxi
Been there? Usually we are the butts of jokes. - Todd
Chu, I've always said that jews who leave israel for moral reasons are 100% non-zionists and Avi was one such upright dude. I get so sick of all these so-called liberal zionists or even anti-zionists who wring their hands over israel's behavior yet remain living there as fucking colonialists! Disgusting hypocrisy! - Taxi
You in Georgia now, boy... Yeah, heard all the jokes, but I like Savanna. Never been to ATL, son... - Chu_
Spent a week in Atlanta one summer a couple of decades ago - I liked it - mind you I went there for a friend's wedding so the atmosphere everywhere I went was festive and warm. - Taxi
yeah, and not like they're gonna fix it soon. Avi always said, there is no left in Israel. It's like 5%. Meh... Israel is devolving and coming more messianic (as Sean likes to say) It's a fundamentalist state of crazies. Any dumb-ass in the US can probably see that if you flash a few articles in front of there face and videos they'll see what a warped place it has become. (one example... more... - Chu_

Born in Atlanta and live outside Savannah. Atlanta isn't a very southern city, and is hardly the same place it was even a decade ago. Savannah is nice. - Todd
American- linked below is the dictum that Donald wrote in 2012, where he makes 6 points, and you're #1 on that list. Weiss & friends looked really stupid putting him on a pedestal at that point in time. Very poor decision, as I felt like I was back in grade school and the teacher's pet, just got elevated to shill for the academy. http://mondoweiss.net/2012... (506 comments, lol!) - Chu_
What is so amusing to me is that so many of the commenters like Donald who are always lecturing about not 'collectively' blaming the Jews constantly refer to and blame ' all Southerners' as racist and slave owners--such hypocrites." They sure like collective punishment for others. They probably wouldn't think twice about holocausting us for our own good, either. - Todd
Krauss comment to Donald (lol!!!) "I could go on, but your list is just weird. You’re not even Jewish either.

I never really cared for Annie. My guess is that she had something to do with my banning, since I was banned after a blow up with her about the safety of women traveling alone in Egypt. - Todd
Todd - if you're interested in Egypt, you may also be interested in a novel recently published by "Castellio." It's titled "The Beautiful West & The Beloved of God." For anybody in Canada, Michael Springate will launch his book in Toronto Nov 2. He's trying to put together a US East Coast book tour starting around March 2015, if anyone is willing to do some legwork to find a venue & do some logistics, etc. I'm sure he'd be interested & appreciative. - ChasMark
chris moore has a good takedown of this and I forgot that a lot of that period was about Ron Paul: 'An interesting battle recently took place on Mondoweiss between a periodic contributor to the blog, establishment, left liberal Democrat and Jewish-American liberal Zionist Prof. Jerome Slater, vs. much of the regular Mondoweiss commentariat, with Slater eventually criticizing the... more... - Chu_
cont. : "Slater is apparently perturbed that Ron Paul enjoys not only support from the small government, anti-Empire, anti-Globalist, anti-totalitarian right (sneered at by neocons, neoliberals and left-liberals like Slater as the "isolationist" wing of conservatism), but he's particularly perturbed that Paul is getting a lot of traction amongst civil libertarians and anti-war advocates on the left, as well.

Chas, I'm not familiar with the author or the book. What's it about? - Todd
Kaspersky. - Todd
Todd, annie doesn't have the power to ban. I see it happening like this: Adam comes up with a list and forces it on phil - most of the time, phil surrenders cuz I think he justs wants to write - I don't get that phil is into the 'control' thang. - Taxi
Taxi, I didn't think she has the power to ban. I would think she would have some influence, though. No big deal. I've been banned from lots of other places, and figured it would happen there also. I understand that my views aren't popular, but they are just opinions. I don't think my views are extreme or stupid, but that's apparently my blind spot. FWIW, I did manage to make to make a spot for myself on an official list of potential terrorists circulated by the U.S. government. - Todd
American, I had exactly that love-hate debate with annie several times and I think I may have changed her mind some because I'd stated my wish to see "tel aviv in smokey ruins" on a thread not too long ago and she passed my comment and gave me a nod to the post through a brief email that had the above "smokey ruin" quote and she'd also added a winking emoticon. l think she too must have... more... - Taxi
Todd, she's an unpaid goy - do you really think she has ANY influence over Adam who ostensibly is running the show? I really don't personally think so. - Taxi
MRW, what really pisses me off is that the value of our collective efforts that immensely helped make mw what it is now are utterly unacknowledged by Adam. - Taxi
You may be right, Taxi. Either way, I expected the banning and the attacks. - Todd
Todd -- Castellio (Michael Springate) posts only rarely on MW. He's also on Sic Semper Tyrannis and Going to Tehran.

Israel, the US Congress and treason...http://www.presstv.com/detail...
"Question: What is a traitor? Answer: One who is not loyal to and betrays his or her own country. On that basis, and in the simple logic of commonsense, there is surely a strong case for saying that those men and women who are elected to the US Congress and put the interests of a foreign power (Israel) before those of their own country are traitors and, because they are endangering America’s own best interests by doing so, should be charged with treason. Unfortunately it’s not that simple because of Section 3 of Article 3 of the United States Constitution. It defines treason as specific actions, namely “levying War against [the people of the United States], or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” - weareone
"Strictly interpreted that seems to mean that those in Congress who do the Zionist lobby’s bidding and by doing so endanger America’s own best interests are protected and can’t be charged with treason because the foreign power they are assisting is not a declared enemy. (Some will no doubt say that Israel did levy war against America when it attacked the USS Liberty during the Six Days... more... - weareone
Our narrow definition of treason is so old it doesn't reflect the current realities --it needs to be expanded...but congress would have to do that and in doing it a number of politicians would open themselves to be indicted for treason.. - American
I agree. I'm with Hart until he says <<….. Is there not a case for saying that because those in Congress who support Israel right or wrong are effectively giving aid and comfort to America’s Arab and other Muslim enemies they should be charged with treason.>> Why convolute the truth by labeling the Arabs/ Muslims the enemy in order to make a case for traitors/treason? They are not our enemies. Why not speak the truth about enemies domestic and foreign? - weareone
If they are not considered an enemy, they are certainly not a benefit to the US. What start up nation do you underwrite for that gives you little to nil in return? Is it that one day they are going to bring us back treasure and new acquisitions? What I mean is if they are some shadow colony of the US, then where's the return on investment? There is none and we'll never see repayment. We're a big bag of sugar and they've poked a few holes in the bag to fall in their proximity. - Chu_
Then there's the bogus argument that we are correcting history and all the bad things that happened to Jews, and the USA is the hand that will save Jews. If that be the case, why aren't we working toward helping the American Indians for a new state, because surely we've screwed them and only helped Jews throughout the last century. - Chu_

I think we may be saying the same thing Chu. If I'm reading him correctly, Hart seems to be saying that by giving aid to Israel we're somehow enabling an Arab/ Muslim enemy. I don't understand his point at the end. - weareone
wao, yes- I was carving my own path! But this is Gideon Levy"No American administration has received the spitting in its face as submissively as this one. No other ally in the world, including the European powers, has dared to act so explicitly against the United States’ positions. " - Chu_
yes, Levy's spot on. - weareone
He is saying at the end that congressional quislings do whatever Israel wants, and that stirs up the Arab world creating more strife and ultimately coming back to bite the US interests.

I don't agree with the H-Industry's definition of Holocaust denial either. Its ridiculous.
According to them and their followers you are denying what happened to the Jews if: - American
You dispute the 6 million number. EVEN though the numbers have been officially revised downward by the opening of countries official records on some camps. - American
You don't agree that Hitlers plan was to mass execute all the Jews * From the Beginning.* - American
You question the use of gas chamber and ovens as execution methods. - American
None of these things are 'denying' Jewish persecution---they are questioning *the details*. - American
If anything, making the holocaust an exclusively Jewish event is the grossest form of holocaust denial, because it denies the suffering of millions of others who were not Jewish. If you ignore the nationality of non-Jewish victims and just categorize them as non-Jewish victims, as Jews are categorized as Jewish victims, I'm pretty sure that Jews were not the main victims of the Nazis. - Todd
I object to being forced to AFFIRM the holocaust, by whatever definition or narrative. Take for example that female reporter who travelled to Tehran & interviewed Rouhani right after he was elected. She demanded of him: "Do you deny the holocaust?" That is the equivalent of "do you believe that jesus christ is your lord & savior," It is the demand for an affirmation of belief.

"neither is getting into lengthy debates with Christian theological points". I don't know that theology and Christianity was really something that is focused on at MW, other than M.Ellis' writings (against it). - WJones
Hostage I noticed has some familiarity with talmudic teachings, but he never presented himself as an expert on Jewish thought or practice. His interests were strictly the legality and machinations of Israell, its zionist friends elsewhere and the intricacies of international law. - Danaa
Another theory: he is desolate over the current state of affairs. I used to tell him that legalities are all well and good but that the antagonist, Israel, has no regard for any of those.

Judeofascism.com: Self-serving, militant Jewish-American Zionists and their culture of authoritarianism have poisoned U.S. politics from left to right
Pretty well sums it up: --- "What I find interesting about the conflict on Mondoweiss is the contrast between Slater's militant Jewish mindset, and the mindset of the authentic liberals and traditional American liberalism as epitomized by some of the Mondoweiss commentariat -- which goes to my premise that the ethno-religous doctrine, ideology and "nation" of Jewry is innately antagonistic and warlike, and carries a heavy bias in favor aggression and violence wherever it goes ---> - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
">--- (for reasons having to do with a strategy of Jewish continuity through contrived polarization, and a modern, wealthy, Jewish "insiders" culture of greed that seeks profit off of war and government debt) as well as a bias in favor of Big Government, which Jewry essentially seeks to infiltrate, grow and then utilize as a bodyguard for its authoritarian rackets. - ChasMark
"This should be contrasted with the generally peaceful ethos of Greco-Christian civilization and its manifestations on both the traditional Western left and right, which have a bias in favor of peace and prosperity for all, and seek to lead by upright example as opposed to government coercion and violence, and ideally only resort to violence in self defense -- all of which makes the... more... - ChasMark

Connecticut arm of million-strong church votes to shun occupation profiteers...http://electronicintifada.net/content...
"The United Church of Christ in the US state of Connecticut has declared its support for the Palestinian-led campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel. A BDS resolution approved by delegates to the annual gathering of the church’s Connecticut conference follows similar moves by its followers in New York, Northern California and in the Central Pacific and Central Atlantic regions. As a result, church bodies have been urged to divest their holdings in companies profiting from Israeli occupation in Palestine, including Caterpillar, Motorola, Hewlett-Packard, G4S and Veolia." - weareone
"The United Church of Christ has around one million members across the US. Activists in the United Church of Christ Palestine Israel Network (UCCPIN) are scheduled to propose measures to support BDS at the church’s general synod in Cleveland, Ohio, in June next year." - weareone
"If the UCC divests from contractors with the Israeli occupation, it will be the fourth national church body in the United States to do so, following divestments by the Quaker Friends Fiduciary Corporation in 2012, the Mennonite Central Committee in 2013 and the Presbyterian Church (USA) in June this year." Also in June, a board on pension and health benefits with the United Methodist Church divested its shares in G4S, a British-Danish contractor with Israel’s prisons and occupation forces."--end quote - weareone

Good!

But the new mod rules just kept on getting tighter and tighter and now it feels like a noose around my neck when I try to speak at mw. I make the occasional quick one liner now instead of my usual gymnastics and theatrics. MW is too boring for me these days. - Taxi
Also phil wanted to keep me around because for a long while I was the most 'searched' for commentator on mw. Adam often found my comments offensive or too edgy for his delicate anti-zionist sensibility. - Taxi
I was banned 3 or 4 years ago, I guess. I was never actually warned or told what happened or why, but all of a sudden, I couldn't log in. - Todd
I'll add a one liner every so often, but it's not worth putting more than one minute comment in, if it's gonna get rejected, or be held up for 28 hours. So much for the 'war of ideas'. more like the War of Attrition. - Chu_
Yeah I remember there was a mass purge - it was really crazy - no rhyme or reason for most of the people they banned. Some really cool and steady hands were banned just like that. I've actually gotten probably about 5 or 6 warnings, a couple of them from a terse Adam. - Taxi
like Pots. - Chu_
Chaos could stir the pot. Surprised they kept Cliff. He could be their token Indian. - Chu_
Yeah Pots was great - perfect example of WTF?! - Taxi
guy did nothing wrong. - Chu_
except be the first to comment on many threads. - Chu_
taxi, they had a minyan of all the zio-guys (what we'd probably call an intervention) on Phil Weiss. MJ, Adam, Slater, (the list goes on). They all got to eliminate 3 names lol. - Chu_
Chaos resigned himself. He and I got banned from a few places at the same time. At huf post, ten years ago, there was like five or six pro palestine and about 500 zio uglies and we gave 'em hell LOL it was brilliant cuz we just ran circle after cirlce around them. - Taxi
Did Chaos say he was the Hal with the red alert icon on Huff post? I used to read HPost and really liked that guy, if it was Chaos or not. - Chu_
Chaos and I had several names cuz every time we got banned on the huff post (and other sites) we would come back with a new name and renewed vengeance lol! One of the names he used that I recall is something like 'Alpha Memory'. I can't even remember the names I used at first, but Taxi was the last moniker I used on the huff and it kinda stuck. - Taxi
I dont why I havent been banned, I was banned at Huffpo and Dkos for my Isr comments.Maybe Phil is more tolerant than I give him credit for or else I'm just a goy lab rat used for observation... - American
I was banned at huff post. They have the kosher squads doing their mitzvahs and present their info to huff post and you get banned. Here's one crew of them> Brothers of Judea http://thebrothersofjudea.blogspot.com/ There are plenty more like jidf, et al. - Chu_
Dkos, that place always sucked. Didn't they make discussion of Israel verboten a few years ago. What a bunch of pansies.> 'DailyKos has acted to ban commenters from linking to Mondoweiss, - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2011...' - Chu_
Phil had no moderation as such for a couple of years - then with the rising success of mw, Adam and mw's financial backers wanted moderation introduced. Yes credit to Phil for his tolerance. But it was better without moderation cuz when you got a kkk fan commenting on the 'jews', pretty much everyone attacked them thus showing the vast gap between pro Palestinians and white power skinheads. - Taxi
I don't recall any KKK fans or skinheads posting on MW. I think I was accused of being both, and of being a paleo-nazi (l think I just I coined a term!), but that's not the same as being any of those things. - Todd
Yeah mw used to get plenty of wackos. Often they'd be hasbara agents disguised as antisemites. Talking here about the early, early, early mw days. - Taxi
Hi guys (and gals). I am always up to discussing moderation's immoderate activities. Glad to hear you Taxi and Chaos gave 'em hell at HuffPo. I never bothered with their comment sections. Not my gig. DKos I did comment for a couple of years and got simply bored. Got into some good hissy fits with volleyball1 - strictly for fun, not that I had any hope of converting him into a full... more... - Danaa
Taxi, for what it's worth, I've always liked your fire spitting dragonian ways (even when we disagree, say, on Sisi, the not pretty Austrian Empress). I'm partial to high energy people, on and off-line. Just please remember that when it comes to comment sections you are in a pool of Aspergers galore. Phil kept you at MW because Annie is partial to you and because he likes (and envies) your energy. - Danaa
Despite everything, people should give some credit to Phil. He probably fought to keep American and a few others, who he knows very well are not jewish. American probably serves an important role as defining the outer edges of allowed debate. Don't you love it, American? No one fights to keep me, alas. they just do, even when I violate every decent rule about length of comments and... more... - Danaa
Danaa, I remember once annie wrote that she has no influence over the banning thing. I think she was quite perturbed too when mw editors made their grand spring-clean.

Weiss often gets dumped on for some of the boob things he says. But yes he does put himself out there, and has exposed some of the tribal thinking that most people are unaccustomed to hearing. and moreso than the partner at MW who Blankfort referred to as his 'handler' - and Taxi's comments reinforce.

thanks for the link Chu, I never saw that article. - pepsi
Pepsi, back then those days, the comments had so much info (ask chas!), I would read them late into the night, and wake up to read more. Now it's bland as can be. Too bad the few crybabies with emotional needs have big uncles with deep pockets that shut down interesting discussions. But that's where MW is today. It's all about keeping Hophmi and Tokyo safe from unruly commenters. - Chu_
Weiss is part of that fragile crybaby bunch. He just spilled a few more beans than the rest. Arguably, because he was too clueless to realize the significance of his dirty secrets. fuck him. - pepsi
Gilad June 27, 2011, 10:25 am Hello MB, indeed, totally troubling, yet, very honest Hello MB, indeed, totally troubling, yet, very hones - and brave of Weiss to admit it. It is also possible that Weiss didn’t grasp how troubling it was. I obviously do not know him at all… - pepsi
I think to Weiss, and I've said this before, confessing one's sins is "enlightenment", even if one (jew) keeps committing the same sins. Too clueless and narcissistic to do the real work of actually reforming. - pepsi
Weiss has only confessed to Jewish supremacism (not even, he calls it "racism") and Jewish tribalism as his core motivator, but he never followed up on the ideas. Instead, he has tried to place all the blame for supremacist and Jewish tribal behavior on Zionism, as if Jewish culture wasn't supremacist and militantly tribalist before modern zionism. And he pushes this theme just about... more... - pepsi
Weiss will fight til the day he dies to protect the idea that Jewish culture and "values" are superior to anything the goys came up with, or reform Jews like Jesus. That's what Judaism all comes down to, that it was perfect before Jesus and Christianity came along and called it out for being tribal and not universalist. Even the secular Jews will cling to this belief to their graves, and be miserable every Christmas season. - pepsi
when a jew is stupid enough to believe that tribal, racist, supremacist, 100% self-serving Jewish culture is superior and more universalist than every other culture, their admission of tribal self-interest shouldn't be viewed as bravery, but rather, obliviousness. - pepsi
@ Taxi: "Can we now just call the fucking isreli jews 'nazi' based on the facts above?! - Taxi" NO, we should not: 1. It buys into the brainwashed narrative that 'nazi' is the evilest thing the world has ever known. This widespread perception is the product of relentless propaganda. It is self-defeating to aid in perpetuating it. - ChasMark
2. Recall Max Blumenthal: http://podcast.lannan.org/2014... -- "But what we need to see Israel as is not something that’s unique; it’s not uniquely bad. . . . “don’t trust anyone who says Israel is uniquely evil and it’s acting against American interests; those people are seeking to cover up or conceal the kind of... more... - ChasMark
Chas, in our contemporary life, the nazis did some pretty evil shit - and not just to jews - so I think the label fits - I don't think it's propaganda at all. Pot Pol was pretty evil too but Hollywood didn't spread that message out. - Taxi
Blumenthal seeks to normalize Israeli zionism, and to shift the focus from the "unique" nature of the evil of zionism. In this way, he shields zionists/Israel from coming to terms with the reality of their crimes against humanity. - ChasMark
I disagree with your line of reasoning, Taxi. Furthermore, given the relentless Hollywoodized version of Germany, Hitler, Nazis that we have been pummeled with since at least 1914, I am not certain of exactly what "evil shit" Nazis did. I know what Americans did, that they don't own up to: they deliberately targeted German & Japanese civilians, and they lied without ceasing. This is documented; the documentation is 100 X more compelling & damning than the (alleged) Wannsee documents. - ChasMark
Nazism, like zionism, is a supremist ideology that ended up brutally occupying its neighbors; nazism tortured and killed people in their millions - and they weren't all jews. What we did to Berliners at the end of the war is a war crime in itself, what we did to Hiroshima and Nagasaki is even worse - but it doesn't negate the evil that nazism turned out to be. I'm a big fan of German... more... - Taxi
I'm not convinced that "Nazism ... is a supremacist ideology." It was a nationalist ideology, but its agenda was not "global conquest" nor even expansion other than reclaiming territory taken from Germany at Versailles, and controlling agricultural land in the East to prevent another round of starvation of German civilians as Germany suffered in WWI. - ChasMark
The Nazi occupation of France was anything but brutal. Allies did far more damage to France than Germans did. Same goes for Italy. - ChasMark
Berlin was not the only city the Allies destroyed by firebombing, it was but one of 131 German cities that the Allies deliberately destroyed -- see Jörg Friedrich, "The Fire: The Bombing of Germany 1940 - 1945." nb. by "deliberate" I mean the actions was not just intentional but planned, rehearsed, perfected, with the planned goal of killing German babies in their cribs. Allies did this... more... - ChasMark
Between 1939 and 1941 the German army invaded and occupied the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Denmark, Yugoslavia, Greece, Norway and Western Poland. Now if that isn't expansionism, then I don't know what is. - Taxi
If you are going to use "nazi" comparatives, you open the door to people like me who are going to demand that the facts be in order. - ChasMark
That's not expansionism, Taxi. Those cities were not invaded for purposes of making them part of German territory but for purposes of militarily pursuing a war that Nazi Germany did not wish to engage and did not start. - ChasMark
The facts are that Germans were brainwashed into following a xenophobic ideology that ended up destroying both the 'other' and Germans as well. Nazis are not victims. - Taxi
The "brainwashing" of Germans took place AFTER 1945. Hitler & Nazism peacefully and successfully re-energized a desperately demoralized, starving, politically chaotic population that had endured a famine that killed 800,000 civilians; an unjust 'peace' treaty; economic rape; a revolution; massive influx of immigrants from Russia & Poland who brought with them ideologies that were... more... - ChasMark
You make a lot of excuses for the nazis, chas. It doesn't matter what "purposes" the Germans saw fit, the fact remains is that they invaded many, many countries by force of arms. - Taxi
I'm not making excuses for Nazis, Taxi, I am recounting the history as it happened, 1917 - 1939. Germans reclaimed their culture and their economy. They were not "brainwashed" by a "xenophobic ideology." In Jan 1933 they were starving, unemployed, dispirited and in political chaos. "Four year plans" produced economic vitality, full employment, it eliminated street-violence, not least against Jews -- Hitler put a stop to the Freikorps violence against Jews. - ChasMark
"It doesn't matter what "purposes" the Germans saw fit, the fact remains is that they invaded many, many countries by force of arms. - Taxi" IT WAS A WAR. That's what happens in war. Germany did not want the war, did not start the war, spent ~7 years trying to avoid war. FDR, Jews, and Churchill wanted war. They got it. Should Germany have rolled over and played dead in the face of Allied attacks? Whether thru bureaucratic snafu, bad decision, or altruism, Germans let the British escape from Dunkirk. - ChasMark
Germans did not destroy the abbey at Monte Cassino, Allies did. Germans did not drop bombs on Rome, Allies did. - ChasMark
You're a lot more studied than I am on this subject, chas, so I do want to pay you some kinda respect for that - I'd have to be well researched on it to comment on some of your statements. I know for a fact that Germany was by far ahead than the rest of europe in practically all aspects of society. I know that europe was both jealous and fearful of Germany. And we all know what jealousy... more... - Taxi
chas, your German scenario reminds me of what the zio west did to Saddam, his Baath party and Iraq. - Taxi
I don't go into lipsticking the Third Reich but I will admit that Germany got the shit end of the stick after WWI and had legitimate grievances that weren't addressed or rectified. I also will admit that Jews in Germany made themselves easy to demonize because of their own practices and activities. As a example we Americans can relate to re the Jewish orgs and Russian Jewish immigration... more... - American
I don't buy the mainstream account of the holocaust at all. The 6 million Jews murdered is an obvious lie, and is probably grossly inflated. I wouldn't doubt that there were no gas chambers/extermination camps, and I don't accept the claim that the Jews were the only victims--by total numbers of incarcerated or dead they weren't the main victims, if all Christians were counted as one... more... - Todd
Taxi, if you think Europe was jealous of Germany, you can imagine how jealous The Chosen Ones were, even as Germany was the least nationalistic and most welcoming of Jews in Europe and the world. Did Jews say "thank you" or anything like that? No, they destroyed Germany, undoubtedly in part because they couldn't stand how culturally superior the Germans were, and still are. - pepsi
It also didnt escape the German citizens that Jewish org were sending food to Germany --but 'only' for Jews into Germany. As it didnt escape their notice that a Jewish US congressman cancelled a US food aid package to Germany and a special US shipment of dried milk and baby food supplies for babies in Germany--because he didnt like the way Jew were being treated--and mind you, this was in the years when Jews free to leave Germany without penalty .. - American
Had I been a average German in those days seeing this "jewishness' favortism and US favortism toward Jews----punishing the German collective by withholding food even for starving babies ---I would have been resentful also. - American
Germans were so tolerant of their Jewish guests that they didn't even challenge the status quo until 800,000 Germans had starved to death, and child prostitutes were servicing rich Jews to survive for 10 years. Heck, even after that, Hitler still employed lots of Jews as top aides, as long as they had proven their German patriotism. - pepsi
Loyalty to the host nation has always been way too much to ask of diaspora Jews. Any such demands are inherently "anti-semitic", and justification for destruction by world Jewry. - pepsi
Look at my post here on ....http://www.jpost.com/Diaspor...

I wonder if these geniuses ever stop to consider that there is a flip side to going back to Germany to establish their Jewish and Israeli (nation within a nation) pollitics by brow beating German on the holocaust and etc....---because when a thinking person looks at it we can see they are acting in the same manner that the German accused them of to being with in 1930's. So they may just end up convincing a lot of Germans that the nazis were right after all instead of visa versa. - American
Jewish writers have led the way to dismissing the German "stab in the back" claim regarding German loss of WWI. Germans knew what we are not allowed to discuss, and this, in addition to German babies dying while German jews got food, is a critical fact: Chaim Weizmann made the decision to "bet on England" to win WWI, because a British win would be "good for the Jews." Jews were... more... - ChasMark

It's obvious that they are actively doing so, and this is from... more... - Todd

Some people think that Weiss is on some kind of spiritual journey of enlightenment, like one of these days he's going to reject Jewish tribalism, aka Jewishness/Judaism. Fat chance.

How can the melting pot concept of Americans really exist, if they are building a safe haven in the Arab world for certain members - and this colony is an exclusive place for a certain subgroup of people - hardly a shared colony of all Americans.

In Amos Elan's Book (Israeli author) 'the Pity of It All', as far back as 1819, some Jews wanted nothing more than to integrate into German Society.

Thanks for that quote, Chu. I think their power is overestimated. - weareone
I think that power is greatly underestimated -- it's mostly about the manipulation of covert networks extending across literally thousands of organizations -- the quiet coordination of resources -- without leaving a visible trace. - Sean McBride
Think of it as a bed of bed of weeeds that can be treated no diferent from any other mafioso organization, just more international. They became strong using their corrupt practices, cornering markets for control, while using sympathy to gain a foothold over the old Wasp establishment. Cut out a few arteries and we'll see how well oiled their submarine is. - Chu_
The Israel lobby is in a much better position to take down its critics than vice-versa -- it commands vastly greater resources than its opponents. It is much wealthier, better organized, more determined, etc. - Sean McBride
Cornering the market: 'have the greatest market share in a particular industry without having a monopoly.' - This is employed by Jewish interests time and time again. i made a case about this with NBA bastketball. more than 50% of the ownership of the NBA is Jewish. They get to set the prices, control the aspect of the entire game, as long as they work together. Don Sterling sold the team to Steve Ballmer - yes they are co-religionists. - Chu_

The truth is we don't know if the Jewish Org power is over or under estimated. For the simple reason that it hasn't been seriously 'challenged' by anyone. The 'Holocaust shield' has prevented any serious challenge before. I think its not overestimated in congress. But its beginning to be challenged in a lot of other venues----lots of small and not so small loses for the Zios are... more... - American
In the Zio race to be the next king of the hill they are going to run into problems. The Wasp establishment existed because it was mainly wasps who founded and populated this country. Zios are 2% (I was corrected a few years ago on MW - it's the 2% of the 2% lol). So in order to make open gains it's going to be tough, because identity politics doesn't work for them, and they seem to... more... - Chu_
" Zios are 2% (I was corrected a few years ago on MW - it's the 2% of the 2% lol)"....Phil is indulging in wishful thinking or protecting the tribe there.If you want to define zionist by support for Israel its a lot more than 2% of the 2%.. Several years ago when we were arguing over this on MW I subscribed to about a dozen email "Jewish Chronicles and Jewish Chapters news letters from... more... - American
American -- when the New England Patriots prepare for a game with the Denver Broncos, do they ridicule and dismiss the abilities of the Broncos-- or do they try to assess those abilities as honestly and accurately as possible? Smart competitors never underestimate the capabilities of their opponents. Your mentality is very different from that of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. While we're... more... - Sean McBride
Then there was the argument advanced by MJ Rosenberg and fellows that Jews were all loyal Americans because 90% of them were liberals and voted for the Dems so that proved that Jews didn't vote mainly on the Isr issue. Again nothing can be proved from that. It may or may not be true that Israel 'doesn't influence' their voting---but there again voting for the liberal proves nothing. The... more... - American
Yea its a Southern thing.LOL......we are a lot like the Zulu tribe who defeated the Brits and their' idea of themselves ' as smart modern warriors in Africa by exposing their inherent military weakness and unnerving them. - American
Sean...do not be confused about 'underestimating the enemy' and "understanding what they actually are". There is a huge difference there. I understand what they are when pushed to a corner--they do not understand what other people are,mainly americans in this insistence , when pushed to a corner. - American
'' Northerners tend to be much more reserved, cautious, careful and calculating. - Sean McBride)...I doubt that, we Southerners get away with murder. One of our best tactics is 'playing dumb'. ''Well gee we didn't know such an such law prevented us from building this or that but its already built, so oh well, too late now.". Another one is acting like we don't know what on earth you are... more... - American
I am sure there are many smart and careful Northerners but their smarts seem to desert them when they come South. There are more than 30,000 former Northerners living on swamp land with creeks around here they paid 150,000- an acre for cause we told them it was 'water front'. - American
'Phil is indulging in wishful thinking or protecting the tribe there.' - wasn't phil but a commenter. I know it's not the 1 percent of the 1 percent, but funny that that's how they were laying it out. Zionism is nobody! a specter in the night... - Chu_
'Northerners tend to be much more reserved, cautious, careful and calculating' what a generalization Sean. In what state is that? I'd like to know. - Chu_
playing dumb American> also known as sandbagging. - Chu_
I don't think Sean understands the sandbagging tactic But he thinks Southerners are all dumb so I was trying to explaining it in a way he could relate to.. - American
LOL sorry again Sean ,but I got to say you are really taking the ribbing well these days and not exploding at anyone so thats admirable. - American
After all the mutual ribbing, when the dust clears, what will be left is reality as it is. - Sean McBride

Oh Vey!...myth of Jewish genius exposed again!
PISA world education ranking put Israel even below Estonia, Vietnam and etc in Math, Science and Reading skills. - - American
I sure they will blame this on intermarriage or associating with goys. Or call PISA a anti semitic.conspiracy against Jews. LOL - American
sorry, I cant resist teasing you Sean with this stuff. - American
2012 PISA assessment - Israel is 3rd from the very bottom in Math & Science. - (Hophmi needs to see this stuff. He believes that Ashkenazi are smarter than the rest of the world. The IQ thing is his bread & butter.) - Chu_

Neanderthals and Humans First Mated 50,000 Years Ago, DNA Reveals: http://news.yahoo.com/neander...
In a mikva bath, no doubt. - Todd
Neanderthals have been utterly slandered in Hollywood. - Taxi
Neanderthal digs in the middle east have shown that they lived in peaceful communities and put much effort into caring for their children. - Taxi
Homo sapiens genocided neanderthals off the face of the earth. - Taxi
Some homo sapien communities were friendly with neanderthal communities. I read that the only difference between neanderthals and homo sapiens is that the later was capable of 'premeditated' violence while the former used violence simply as a response/reaction. This explains the successful genocide: homo sapiens constantly ambushed and therefore had the element of surprise as a constant advantage. - Taxi
Neanderthals (Nat Geo & Archaeologist findings) were the first original inhabitants of what is now Israel. So by rights Israel should belong to the Neanderthals. Also did you know that some humans still retain the original Neanderthal skull alignment? You can have your skull x-rayed by some scientist at Georgetown U to find out if yours is. - American
Yeah I read a book about gene genealogy and a chunk of the book was about neanderthals in the Levant and the Jordon Valley. Fascinating stuff. But I'm horrified that we genocided a whole two-legged species. Visually speaking, neathderthals look like the missin link between homo sapiens and simians. - Taxi

Anybody ever see this movie? The Day of the Jackal http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...
"In fact, they now realize the killer could have been pretending to be British, just as he pretended to be Danish and French. At the cemetery, Lebel watches as the Jackal's coffin is lowered into a grave. The authorities wonder, "But if the Jackal wasn't Calthrop, then who the hell was he?" - pepsi
is this about carlos? - JustTheFactsPlease
No but I read the book about the jackal. - American
