WRMEA - Interview with Gilad Atzmon by Prof. Norton Mezvinsky a quick & dirty transcript of Pt. IV -
the fact that we talk about otherness implies that we accept that jews are different. the jew is a very complicated category — ethnic, racial or religious? you can never criticize this identity. i attack from a different angle. one of the most interesting psychological instruments i developed is PRE traumatic stress disorder. with jews we are dealing with this pre-traumatic stress disorder. look at iran: we invent a fantastic scenario of the iranians developing nuclear weapons; the evidence says they don’t; the mullahs say its against their religion, and a government that is run according to religious rules you have to believe them! —- but the fantasy of destruction is very vivid and leads toward a war. - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
another interesting anecdote, i spoke about — - - we are dealing with a collective that is tormented by the prospect of disaster. and why? because they know that they bring it on themselves! and why? because of the role of the Other. this is a very complicated question. when i speak to american people i tell them that their role is to start to talk about it openly. i’m subject to some... more... - ChasMark
so it’s the role of yu and me to dismantle this ticking bomb. nobody’s been able to do it. when christ came and said love your neighbor, they nailed him to the cross. what did they do to spinoza? they kicked him out. they didn’t just kick him out, … they also sent to the pope and asked him not to take in spinoza. … mezvinsky: but in judaism you can’t be excommunicated, so that doesn’t leave apart the idea that spinoza challenged … - ChasMark
gilad: what can we do? you have the first amendment, the most precious value, freedom of speech. i know that there is a huge assault on your most precious liberty but this is the only window of opportunity we have to resolve this. we have to start to talk about it, to call a spade a spade; to tell AIPAC NO! because even Walk over aiopac is gate kept by the same people. - ChasMark
we must liberate ourselves of political correctness because due to political correctness we have lost our immune system. what is political correctness? it’s a very clever instrument: it’s basically a political position that doesn’t allow political criticism. no. everything should be open. we should start to speak our mind. if we don’t do it now it will be too late. - ChasMark
Final question: re Israel and Iran, you implied that the israelis actually believe the propaganda about iran. gilad: you’re right! the symptoms of pre traumatic stress is that you really see a vivid image of your destruction! this is a serious mental state. I discovered this ptsd issue — for many years after being in the army i had very vivid dreams … I was tormented every night by very... more... - ChasMark
but when it came to the 2nd & 3rd generation, they were traumatized. why? because the ones who endured the trauma learned how to survive it, but the later generations, they matured into pre traumatic stress. it was something they had never lived thru and they couldn’t deal with it. this is what afflicts israeli society. this is called politics of fear. exactly the same thing happened in... more... - ChasMark
but there is one other concept that is crucial to me to mention: the more brutal you are to the Other, the more tormented you become by the possibility that the other is as brutal as yourself. Easy! If you are very vicious to your girlfriend you may imply that she may be as vicious as you. if your girlfriend is ___ and weak, and you are really aggressive to her, you’re much more... more... - ChasMark
what is the way around it? It’s funny. who came up with it? Jesus: turn your other cheek. this is the only way around it. and this is what we need now. now, with AIPAC dominating your foreign policy you’re not going to turn the other cheek. you’re strong enough to turn the other cheek. you’re strong enough to tell afghanistanis, You know what? sorry, we are going to bomb you with food... more... - ChasMark

reading "Truman, American Jews, and the Origin of the Arab-Israeli Conflict" by John Judis. Don't know if Atzmon has reviewed it; iirc Phil praised it to high heaven. I heard Judis give a talk about the book; when asked questions of a historical nature, Judis repeatedly said, "I am not a historian." Although he's billed as a historian, he's correct in his self-assessment: he's not a... more... - ChasMark
so far (I've read only the first chapter) the argument Judis tries to make is that the mess that is zionism in USA and the Arab-Jewish conflict in Palestine all started with Truman. That's hogwash. Etan Bloom wrote in "Arthur Ruppin and the Production of Hebrew Culture in Palestine" that Jews started to deliberately displace and undermine Arab businesses & culture in Palestine as early as 1908. - ChasMark
We have got to take back the writing of this history. That why I got so upset w/ Berthe: if we cede the field to the Judises of the world, we make of ourselves the possum-victim: we curl up and play nice, while they get away with cementing lies into place. We have to be porcupines, call them on their bogus history and make sure quills stick. - ChasMark

"Shahak, an Israeli professor who was a survivor of the Nazi holocaust" - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
Alison Weir posted an article on Counterpunch that uncovered unsavory information about Rabbi Schneerson, whom American presidents since Jimmy Carter have honored with a special day. The article is well worth your time, and Schneerson's attitudes should be made known to all Americans who are called upon to commemorate him. - ChasMark
The focus of this GFTG item is a statement Weir wrote in the article -- an innocuous phrase, we hear it all the time: "survivor of the Nazi holocaust." - ChasMark
How many people identify themselves as "survivors of the Russian holocaust/Holodomor," or "survivor of Allied firebombing of Germany," or "survivor of the USA's atomic bombing of Hiroshima" or "survivor of the US invasion of Iraq/Afghanistan/Libya/Syria?" - ChasMark
And what does it mean to "survive" a holocaust? Doesn't holocaust mean you got burnt up? If you're alive & kicking, you are not a "survivor" of being burned up, you weren't burned up. - ChasMark
Alison Weir is a smart and courageous lady; my rant is not meant as a criticism of Ms. Weir. Rather, the fact that someone like Alison Weir, who exercises her critical & skeptical faculties in thinking & writing about the Jewish-gentile nexus in US and foreign policy, was seduced to write, he "was a survivor of the Nazi holocaust" is an indication of how the concept has been normalized; how the rhetoric has been debased so that even the most astute thinkers & writers automatically produce the phrase. - ChasMark

International Affairs - "The Israeli Solution: A One-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East" - Book TV -
I like Book TV. I'd like it even more if its offerings were not so tilted to Jewish interests and authors, Phil sometimes talks about "counting Jews," and that's what I was doing with this weekend's Book TV schedule. I came across this entry -- Caroline Glick, rabid, off-the-wall US-hating uber zionist. WTF? - ChasMark
"Caroline Glick argues that the U.S. pursuit of a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict has failed miserably and is based on Palestinian claims to land that are unfounded. She argues that the U.S. should push for a one-state solution, with Israel having sovereignty over the entire West Bank. This event was hosted by the David Horowitz Freedom Center in Los Angeles." - ChasMark

"Russia is a Christian country, Putin was saying. This speech recalls last December’s address where the former KGB chief spoke of Russia as standing against a decadent West: “Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values. Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation.” - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
"Heard any Western leader, say, Barack Obama, talk like that lately? Indicting the “Bolsheviks” who gave away Crimea to Ukraine, Putin declared, “May God judge them.” - ChasMark
"What is going on here? With Marxism-Leninism a dead faith, Putin is saying the new ideological struggle is between a debauched West led by the United States and a traditionalist world Russia would be proud to lead." - ChasMark
Hummm.......very interesting. The Bolsheviks were all about destroying 'Russianness"----Putin all about keeping 'Russianness'. United Russia stands--divided other countries fall. Putin not dumb, would guess he anticipated some time ago the US evil eye turning toward Russia and was shoring up unity. - American
Bolsheviks were all about Bolshevizing Germany as well, and Hitler was all about keeping Germany German, in addition to stamping out Bolshevism in Russia. For that matter, Woodrow Wilson made efforts to stamp out Bolshevism in Russia -- see Prof. Carl Richard, "When the United States Invaded Russia: Woodrow Wilson's Siberian Disaster," - ChasMark
Didn't Buchanan have an earlier column about Putin and the ridiculous brouhaha during the Olympics about the Russian law banning promotion of homosexuality to kids? What percentage of the world agrees with Putin? Probably a big majority. We looked awful for Obama's ridiculous antics sending an all homosexual delegation to the Olympics. - Berthe
Good link, Chas. Putin also encouraged Russians to have more children during his first term as president, which seems a little intrusive, but better than demographic replacement. I'd take Putin over any U.S. president that I've lived under. - Todd
By way of analogy: Iran lost about a million young men in Iran-Iraq war. Today, Iran's population is loaded in the under-35 range.

lol, what a crock of shit. The Zionist henchmen and their associations. Thanks for linking the image of Judea declares war for comparison. Gilad Atzmon once wisely said that Jews only want to discuss history after they are kicked out of that nation, they don't want to know about the factors that led to it. - Chu_
I bet this we'll be seeing more of this picture. It serves to scare Jews to rally and open their wallets to AIPAC, et al.

WHERE ARE THEY NOW? Stanley Fischer; Jeff Feltman, and Ukraine.
As recently as Jan 10 2014 Israel's former central banker Stan Fischer was on tap for assistant to Janet Yellen "Like the failed recent Obama administration-Israel lobby pincer move to ram approval for U.S. military strikes on Syria through Congress, avoiding such due diligence through velocity may actually be the only means for successful Senate confirmation." - ChasMark

"Washington’s hypocrisy is also on full display when it denounces the largely peaceful separation of Crimea from Ukraine while ignoring its own support of separation of Kosovo from Serbia in 1999 after a prolonged bombing campaign. The US military occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan as well as the forty-six year domination of the Palestinian West Bank and East Jerusalem by Israel are arguably much more brutal than anything occurring in Crimea. Russia can claim that Crimea was actually part of Russia prior to 1954, while the Israelis’ historical claim is shrouded in antiquity and requires a leap of faith to be considered credible. Washington’s nation building role in the Balkans and Asia has even less justification than either, apart from the desire to continue to be kingmaker in what have been sometimes regarded as client states. - ChasMark from Bookmarklet

Here's what Ya'alon knows: 1. Most Jewish Israelis are dumber than your average box of rocks -- demonstrated by comments to the article. 2. 2/3 of Americans are just as dumb. 3. 9/10 of US Congresscreeps would endorse Ya'alon. see Box of rocks, above. - ChasMark

Now that Nuland Kagan has secured a European/Ukrainian market for Israeli gas & oil by displacing Russia, Israel no longer needs US financial support.

I believe a 'backfire' is the only way to end the Zionist influence. I don't want a 'bad backfire' ---but for years I have said the Zios and Isr were only going to get worse, more demanding, more aggressive, more hubristic, more dominating.

'formulating our own tribe' ~nah. I think we need to refer to what nation means [“a community of people composed of one or more nationalities with its own territory and government”].

It's not such a great idea. Maybe if you have kids and you don't want them slurping high fructose syrup.

The only psychology class I ever took was in high school, and it was considered a B level class, not honors or anything. It's not that hard to teach the basics, and not that hard to learn. Gives kids the vocabulary to navigate the interpersonal mazes of life. And logic, why not offer it as a replacement instead of trig or algebra 2 for non-math people. I've used my knowledge from that one B level hs course just about every day. Can't say the same for even algebra 1. - pepsi
I had to take critical reading which was basically deconstructing Propaganda 101, as well as Ethics and Logic in high school --it was standard in Catholic Jesuit high schools.

New SAT To Bring Back 1600-Point Scale -- With Optional Essay - pepsi
"The top test score will be 1,600 -- as it was before 2005, when the writing section and essay were added. The test's two mandatory sections, "evidence-based reading and writing," and math, and will take up to three hours to complete. The essay will take up to 50 minutes, and will be scored separately. Some math questions will prohibit calculator use. Students will no longer lose points for wrong answers." - pepsi

Last night Israeli superspy and nuclear technology smuggler Arnon Milchan was onstage accepting the Oscar for 12 Years a Slave.
"His New Regency Pictures partnered with Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment to produce 12 Years a Slave, the brutal film about slavery from British director Steve McQueen. Last night the movie walked away with the biggest award of the night: Best Picture. Milchan recently admitted that he had been a spy for Israel (something that was always rumored in Hollywood). It’s unlikely the admission will affect his standing in the film industry." - pepsi

You are exactly right about The Wolf of Wall Street, Pepsi. That movie did nothing but glamorize the situation and paint a sympathetic picture of Belfort.

Todd, I'm reminded of when you wrote, "The elites have no sense of a common good." That seems to apply. Regarding 12 Years a Slave, anyone got any idea what was so evil about Birth of a Nation and Passion of the Christ? I thought the complaint was that they stirred racial/ethnic contempt. I don't think I'll ever see 12 Years a Slave so maybe I'm wrong to judge it but this sure sounds like very evil hatemongering with the elites congratulating themselves for it. What is in their heads? - Berthe
"very evil hate mongering," Berthe? It was a true story, an autobiography, adapted for film. - MRW_8
You don't know that an autobiography or a biography is a true story.. If I wrote one about myself, I could make myself the hero or the victim of everything that I've ever seen or heard.

" kalithea says: March 2, 2014 at 5:26 pm Zionism has wormed its way into many key areas of American industry and culture to make the U.S. and Zionism appear synonymous and inseparable in the eyes of the world, and to protect the latter’s Achilles’ heel, its questionable legitimacy. For how can you be suspected of overreaching influence, wrongdoing and a hidden agenda when you’ve made yourself appear indistinguishable from the object who’s approval you seek and try to sustain? What better cover can Zionism have than to attach itself to all that is perceived as American and successful? Every time I’m reminded of how deeply embedded Zionism is in America, and how it seizes every opportunity to insinuate itself further, I regress to hopelessness and think: the Palestinians are so screwed and so are all our efforts." - ChasMark from Bookmarklet

"Stand Your Ground" & the Culture of Death | National Catholic Reporter -
"The madness did not drop from the sky. It is the result of a culture of death meeting an industry of violence. We have all become affected by what Pope Francis called the “globalization of indifference.” That is the starting point for the culture of death: When we are indifferent to the life and dignity of another human being, the door is open for violence to occur without a second thought.

My Catbird Seat – “We must impose sanctions” on Israel says British MP -
My Catbird Seat – “We must impose sanctions” on Israel says British MP
"The time when we could condemn Israel and think that that was enough has long passed. The Israelis do not care about condemnation. They are self-righteous. We must now take action against them. We must impose sanctions. If the spineless Obama will not do it, we must do it—even unilaterally. We must press the European community for it to be done. – Sir Gerald Kaufman, MP for Gorton, Manchester" - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
There's quite a brouhaha taking place at MyCatbirdSeat over this statement by Sir Kaufman. One commenter (who shall remain nameless) called out Kaufman for a rear guardian, based upon his use of the holocaust/gentile guilt claim. Many pixels were exchanged between commenters & the author of the piece, Stuart Littlewood who defended Kaufman, and the site's owner, Debbie Menon, who defended Littlewood. - ChasMark
The argument was made that "BDS is the simplest and most effective tool" we in the opposition have to aid Palestinians. We have to stick together. The contrarian commenter, being a helluva nice guy, conceded that "we all have to stick together," but still offered an argument for attacking the holocaust mythology as the source of the "psychosis" that grips Israel. - ChasMark
A larger argument can be made that Kaufman feels comfortable calling for sanctions against Israel because SANCTIONS HAVE NEVER WORKED. He has to know that. Jews started a boycott against Germany that carried on for seven years, but it was not sanctions that destroyed Germany -- Hjalmar Schacht & Hitler's ad hoc economic policies worked around international financial interests and created a robust, full employment economy by opting out of the international banking system (that was one of Germany's crimes). - ChasMark
Ten years of sanctions did not destroy Iraq. Sanctions killed a million people in Iraq, but they did not achieve the desired goal: causing the people of Iraq to rise up and overthrow Saddam. That is why Bush II went to war in Iraq -- to complete the work his pappy started in 1990-1991. - ChasMark

To put it crudely and perhaps despairingly, does BDS have a snowball's chance of cooling the fires of Israehell? I don't think so. That's why I argue that the spot that Sir Kaufman touched on -- holocaust and gentile guilt -- is Ground Zero that must be captured by those who seek justice for Palestinians, for Iran, and to liberate the USA from zionism. - ChasMark

By News Sources on February 7, 2014 Christopher Dickey reports: When Israel looks at the greatest threat to its long-term hopes for the future, these days it’s looking out to sea. The old issues are on the table, of course: Iran’s nukes, the Palestinians, the Syrian slaughterhouse next door and growing regional instability. But if there’s a place where a sudden, out-of-control war is likely to erupt, it’s probably not going to be called the Sinai, the Golan, the West Bank (or Judea and Samaria). It’s going to be called Leviathan, Dalit or Karish — the vast fields of natural gas and oil discovered in the deep waters between Israel and Cyprus over the last five years. Who controls that wealth is likely to dominate the economic future of the region for generations to come. The Israelis know it. So do their allies, their rivals and their enemies.

Taking on Israeli arrogance By George S. Hishmeh | Special to Gulf NewsPublished: 20:00 February 5, 2014
here the Obama administration and its European allies have been remiss is their failure to penalise Israel for its continued occupation of Palestinian territories where some half a million Israelis live in colonies illegally and Israel’s unrevealed nuclear arsenal— points that should have silenced these loud Israeli critics. Moreover, a recent but shocking study published by the Christian Science Monitor has revealed that since 1973, Israel has cost the US about $1.6 trillion (Dh5.88 trillion). (5,700$ per American) - Chu_ was 1.6 trillion in 2002 when csmonitor published the report----its even more now. - American
Taking on Jewish arrogance should be the title, since it is American Jews who largely make the situation possible. Everyone important has to understand that the situation is dishonest and unsustainable, yet they keep pushing the limits. This is bigger than a Madoff or Belfort-type scam, but the attitude is the same. All of this trouble for a 2% ethnic minority isn't worth it, and I can only imagine what would have to be done to enact real justice. Jail and fines will not cut it. - Todd

The meaning of the new narrative is: it’s either them or us. There can never be peace. How to confront the Canaanite legacy? We’ve already received very precise instruction in the Torah.

Cuts the ground right out from under the Jews and points up that the god of the Hebrews is not the height of righteousness but, as Thomas Jefferson observed, "morally deficient." - ChasMark
Sort of puts the claim of "returning to OUR land" in a whole different dimension. - ChasMark

The Vineyard of the Saker: Is a new revolution quietly brewing in France?
"Gradually, Soral and Dieudo have built a real political movement which is active both on the internal front and on international issues." - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
funny how the French (AIPAC) version CRIF tried to silence Dieudo and it only backfired. He is banned from the media, but remains the most popular comic in France!!! - Global Zionists need to realize they spoil the party as they ascend to their hollow perches. People are always going to notice the spoilers in a system of established justice, and to not criticize them (what Dieudo is doing) is simply not realistic. - Chu_

"February 08, 2012 "Israel has long used assassination against its enemies, “hoping that by taking out individuals, they can alter, change the course of history,” says Ronen Bergman, an Israeli commentator and author of “Israel’s Secret War with Iran” and an upcoming book tentatively titled “Mossad and the Art of Assassination.”" - ChasMark
So should we (or anyone) be able to do the same to zionist individuals who we see as a threat, I would think so. - American

“Free” Trade: Undermining Defense, Sovereignty, and the American Job Market - The Unz Review
"A powerful conglomerate consisting of Wall Street moguls, multi-national corporate elites, and political insiders — the one percent cabal as some call them — are mounting an assault on the American economy, endangering national defense, and subverting U.S. sovereignty. Their weaponry includes so-called “free trade” treaties like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) — the godfather of subsequent deals — and the establishment of regulatory agencies such as the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT)." - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
This is an important article. The tagline wraps it up: QUOTE. William Greider, author of "Secrets of the Temple: How the Federal Reserve Runs the Country and One World Ready or Not: The Manic Logic of Global Capitalism," sums up the free trade scam this way: “The great, unreported story in globalization is about power, not ideology.

Unz has that excellent report on the Myth of American Meritocracy http://www.theamericanconserva... Weiss: "Unz is saying that Jews have rigged the system much as WASPs did in an earlier generation" - Chu_
I'm not a WASP but I don't think the sociology of Jewish rigging is the same as WASP dominance at US elite universities. For one thing, WASPs or their ancestors built the universities; Jews just took them over, like they do everything. Second, while reading this paragraph --- (next comment) - ChasMark

Buried inside that quote are these points: 1. The Jews who made it to USA in 1920s and especially between 1933 and 1948 were the wealthiest and the elite of Jewry. 2.

I got sidetracked -- point is, the cream of the crop of Jews made it to USA. The lesser lites, the "mediocre intellects" were abandoned by their Jewish brethren if not directly led to the slaughter by zionists. Eugenics in action, coupled with a form of 'suicide by cop,' or genocide by the people later claimed to be the persecutors of Jews. - ChasMark
The children and grandchildren of those Jewish elites who made it to USA post-European wars are not "eugenically chosen." They have to compete on a more level field -- a field that has expanded to encompass the world. They are no longer the big fish in a small pond. - ChasMark
When I consider what I think is a social pattern of Jewish activity, with that of my Italian parents & grandparents who migrated to USA, I recognize that: 1. my Italian ancestors were peasants; my Mother came here when she was 10 or 11, she'd never been in school. I never knew my g-parents but none of them spoke English, none had ever been anything other than peasant farmers in Italy --... more... - ChasMark

"I got sidetracked." Yeah, you did. Because it wasn't the elite Jews who made it to the US in the 20s and 30s. They went to England, which was the cultural and financial center of the universe then.

MRW is right about Jewish immigrants. In a nutshell-----Jews in America at the time of the Amer. Revolution were 1000 to 2000 out of a total colonial populaiton of 2.5 million.

"American Meritocracy" spends a lot of time tracing rising Asian population, increase in college applications from Asians, but declining acceptance rates.

Legal discrimination against Asians and other minorities was eliminated as a result of the civil rights movement in the 1960s.

Immigration from Asia averaged about 15,000 people per year during the 1950s, but the numbers surged as the 1965 immigration law was imple- mented.

Israeli Prime Minister Stephen Harper returns after long visit in Canada - The Beaverton (Daily Tongue-in-Cheek) - North America's Trusted Source of News
"TEL AVIV - After nine long years travelling in Canada to promote his country, Israel’s prime minister Stephen Harper is finally back in his homeland. “From what I have learned, Canada is a beautiful and proud country,” announced Harper after his arrival at Ben Gurion airport was greeted by deputy Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and throngs of admirers. “I persuaded the Canadian government to become a strong supporter of Israel. After all, Canadians are very polite people who want to please.”" - ChasMark from Bookmarklet
During his prolonged state visit to Canada, the Israeli PM has made several thousands of addresses in Canadian parliament and also represented Canada at the G8, G20, NATO and the UN. Harper also thanked Canada for being generous enough to pay 200 people to accompany him home. - ChasMark
“They let me write their own foreign policy, argue with the Opposition and watch Canada lose a UN Security Council seat that the government said it didn’t want anyway,” the 54 year old leader explained with a noticeable level of excitement in his voice. - ChasMark
Harper even had time to write a book on Canada’s national sport - “iced hockey” - but stated he never understood the country’s fascination with the game and is just happy to be home. At press time, Canada’s Minister of Employment and Social Development Jason Kenney was also set to return to his homeland, mid 19th century Britain, where he will continue his work as Minister of poor houses and child labour."
