Foreign Agents Registration Act: An Overview, CRS In Focus, updated March 7, 2019

Phi Beta Iota: Valuable itemization of the requirements for registration. Unstated but obvious: both AIPAC and ADL are illegally unregistered agents of a foreign power.

Strategic Competition and Foreign Policy: What is “Political Warfare”?, CRS In Focus, March 8, 2019

Phi Beta Iota: High school version of the concept, neglects fact that the US Government does not do holistic analytics or true cost economics, loves regime change as a pay to play profit center for the banks, and lies to the public every single day while the Chinese whip our ass world-wide using peace, commerce, and friendship, the Ron Paul playbook.

Watching Israel Own The U.S.

“The Israelis control the policy in the Congress and the Senate.” – Senator William Fulbright, 1973

“America is a thing you can move very easily.” – Benjamin Netanyahu, 2001

If you have half an hour to spare, you might want to watch the most “powerful” Democrat in the U.S. Senate, and the most “powerful” Democrat in the U.S. House Of Representatives begging (soliciting) for Zionist million$$ during a 2018 meeting of the Israeli-American Council (IAC). Quite a show.

Michael Hudson: Trump’s Brilliant Strategy to End US Dollar Hegemony — Kudos to Bolton & Pompeo

Trump’s Brilliant Strategy to Dismember U.S. Dollar Hegemony

The Neocons who Trump has appointed are accomplishing what seemed unthinkable not long ago: Driving China and Russia together – the great nightmare of Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski. They also are driving Germany and other European countries into the Eurasian orbit, the “Heartland” nightmare of Halford Mackinder a century ago.

The root cause is clear: After the crescendo of pretenses and deceptions over Iraq, Libya and Syria, along with our absolution of the lawless regime of Saudi Arabia, foreign political leaders are coming to recognize what world-wide public opinion polls reported even before the Iraq/Iran-Contra boys turned their attention to the world’s largest oil reserves in Venezuela: The United States is now the greatest threat to peace on the planet.

BREAKING Gordon Duff: Trump, Kushner, Bolton False Flag Scenarios for April-May War with Iran UPDATE 1: Metz Gets It Right — MASSIVE BLUNDER

Trump, Kushner, Bolton Weighing False Flag Scenarios for April-May War with Iran

The date has been set, April, May and leaks are everywhere. The timing is based on the Mueller report and what has leaked to Democratic leaders in the House, who “re-leaked” back to their Mossad handlers and Trump.

Trump has already decided he is attacking Iran, it was given as his only option. Pence failed in lining up European allies but France and Britain are already onboard and only awaiting the casus belli, which has yet to be decided on.

The list includes a dirty bombing in the US or a massive explosion, to be blamed on a mine in the Straits of Hormuz, that cripples one of America’s defective aircraft carriers.

Marjorie Cohn: Progressive Except Palestine Problem

The Progressive Except Palestine Problem

The Jewish community has a special responsibility to fight Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian lands, says Marjorie Cohn.

There is a false equivalency between criticizing Israel and being anti-Semitic. Any criticism of Israeli policy is labeled anti-Semitism, even though many Jews—including members of Jewish Voice for Peace, Jewish Center for Nonviolence and IfNotNow—oppose the occupation.

The BDS movement is not anti-Israeli, as it targets the policies, not the people, of Israel. And actions against Israel’s policies, including BDS, do not equate to anti-Semitism.

Mike Pompeo Lied About the U.S. and the Middle East. Here’s the Truth.

Mehdi Hasan

The Intercept, 11 January 2019

Shadi Hamid, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution’s Center for Middle East Policy, described it “as one of the worst foreign policy speeches I’ve witnessed from a senior U.S. official,” calling it “cynical, petty, incoherent, small, and, well, silly.” Paul Danahar, former BBC Middle East bureau chief, referred to the speech as “simplistic,” noting that “its theme was the goodness of Israel and evil of Iran.”

The effort to arrest Meng Wanzhou started last summer apparently, and the warrant was issued on 22 August. Nobody bothered to tell Trump (intentionally perhaps) and he was unaware of it at the time of the G2-Summit in Argentina. The potential fallout can make sure that China becomes a real enemy (watch how retaliation plays out) and the DC crowd will have their “perfect storm”.

Caitlin Johnstone: John Bolton, Psychopath Who Threatened to Murder an Envoy’s Children to Start Iraq War is Now Guiding the Planned War on Iran

Caitlin Johnstone at Ron Paul Conference

Throughout his appearances on such outlets as Fox NewsFox BusinessFox & Friends, CNN’s The Lead, and Conservative Review, Bolton has been repeating the blatantly false talking point that Iran is somehow uniquely egregious in the Middle East in its support for terrorist factions, calling it the “world’s central banker for international terrorism.”

Since we’re seeing so much John Bolton and so much talk of terrorists, I think this would be a good opportunity to remind everyone of the time John Bolton threatened to murder the children of an OPCW official in order to deceive the world into consenting to the Iraq war which killed a million people.

The Dark Side of Israeli Independence

On May 14, 1948, Israel declared its independence. Each May 15, Palestinians solemnly commemorate Nakba Day. Nakba means catastrophe, and that’s precisely what Israel’s independence has been for the more than 700,000 Arabs and their five million refugee descendants forced from their homes and into exile, often by horrific violence, to make way for the Jewish state.
