Someone already noted that Fisk must have decided to start mailing it in. This makes it pretty obvious.

Poor Robert Fisk. In the end, do even the few who have shown some spine all go heebie jeebies after the years of Zionist cudgels to their head?

CZE--chronic Zionist encephalopathy?

Who knows.

All i can say: Farakhan 2020.

Surprised to see ICH publishing a piece by an establishment "think tanker"--in this instance, one of an endless parade of pretend "anti-war" and debt doomsday prophets intent on pre-conditioning ovine "progressives" to believe that the USG will be "forced" to make cuts to military budgets....

That ain't gonna happen.

I don't know is this guy's a con artist or just naive. He says:

"Why, then, is Washington spending $717 billion in fiscal year 2019 to maintain vast armies, fleets, and air armadas around the world? Not for defense, of America, anyway. It is to protect allies, assert influence, remake failed societies, dictate behavior, promote values, and more."

Ah, not quite. Washington has a disease of addiction called cultural militarism. The establishment has no "reasons" at all for its military spending. It cannot help it. It is the "unsought" hyperdominance of the the military-industrial complex. Ike basically said, in his wisdom, that if this is not tightly restrained, our indulgence of this behavior will eventually go beyond our control. Well, that's what happened--and probably had already happened by the time he gave his speech.

Washington is a MIC junkie with a $2.5 billion a day habit--and growing by the hour. And it is way beyond rehab.

"Trump is a madman, a far-right extremist and an embarrassment, but that’s not why most people in Washington hate him. It’s his foreign-policy attitudes..."

Disagree. The Machine loves him for its most prized foreign policy -- absolute subservience to the Zionist entity. His occasional inconsistencies on this front--are suffered with some grumbling. The announcement of the Syria "withdrawal," btw, appears coordinated with the Netanyahu regime--which is now free to invade Lebanese and Syria airspace at will and murder as many Arabs (and Persians) as it can, making the obnoxious Pole essential to Israeli security (i.e., genocide operations) and burying his most recent corruption troubles. And they sure don't hate Trump for continuing his predecessors' military expansionism.

No, I think the Machine hates Trump because he boorishly revels in the ugliness and brutality of the Machine's essential plutocracy, imperialism, and contempt for the masses domestic and foreign. The elite have had a real good thing going for 75 years. I mean, when you get get the vast majority of your exploited assets to believe they are citizens in a bona fide democracy and work hard to dig their own graves ever deeper for the enrichment of tiny fraction of the population...and keep that going for decades! Who wants to mess with that? Then along comes this carnival barker and without the slightest insight into what he is doing rips away at the facade....TRUMP's GOT TO GO BECAUSE OF THE RISK HE WILL TRIGGER A TRUE AND MASSIVE SHUT DOWN OF THE MACHINE---something that could never happen with our Hillaries and Obamas and the rest of the elite's political tools.

Reading "The Farewell Tour" right now. As always, brilliant and thoroughly dispiriting.

At least he's honest. Any insurrection--violent or non-violent--is doomed to fail. We should commit to a divine madness of peaceful revolution, not because it will succeed--but because it is the right thing to do. And maybe, someday...

I would love to see Hedges take on those charlatans of the status quo like Pinker and "Yuval Noah Harari" and (peacefully) remove their spleens in debate...

"Progressive" American Jewish intellectuals like Richman dominate the "pro-Palestinian" narrative in the US.
Why has this group so assiduously worked to become the "voice of the Palestinians"--and drowned out or at least muffled the Palestinian's own voice?
Because they are Zionists.
By way of illustration: "(A few political controversies, such as whether the right of return for the Palestinian refugees is feasible, remain.)" Like all these Zionists in progressive clothing--Finkelstein included--for Richman European Jewish domination of land that Zionist terrorists expropriated and colonized by mass murder and expulsion of the inhabitants is axiomatic. It just should be in the form--and I do mean form--of a "democratic state."
These people are Zionists. Full stop. They never examine the fundamental assumption--that there should, and can continue to be, a "pre-1967" "Israel." They do not want anyone to raise that question. So they control the story—and make it all about the “settlements,” as if “Israel” pre-1967 was not the granddaddy of all “settlements.”
There are in truth two "solutions" --the only just solution, the gradual repatriation of European Jewry from all of Palestine, including "Israel," to their pre-War countries of origin (the Helen Thomas solution) --or the eradication of the Palestinian from Palestine.
History is clear: All militarist colonial enterprises that fail to wipe out the native or completely subjugate them into permanent racial underclasses fail. The British--India model, or the European-Americas model. Take your pick. At this stage--and ONLY because of Zionist control of US policy and practice--I would bet my money on the latter.

It does not have to be this way. But the only way it can be avoided is if the a priori--"a Jewish state" on Palestinian property--is critically re-evaluated.

There is no "deep state." There is the State. And it is right out in the open, blatant, obscene, unaccountable. There is also no "fake news" relating to matters of significance that depends on actual deception to achieve its objective. Nobody's fooled--but most everyone is cowed.

Since 911, the whores in DC have transferred about $10 trillion to the DoD for operations and procurement. That's almost half the national debt. And half of that went to the "industrial" part of the MIC. And the best part of all--if you're a congressional whore, a pentagon pimp, or thieving and treacherous "contractor"--is that the Pentagon has not disclosed where a single penny of it went.
Nope. Not a dime. Every year hypocrites like Grassley make speeches about how terrible it is that DoD has never issued an honest set of financial statements in its entire freakin' post WWII history--then turn right around and vote to give them hundreds of billions more of the public wealth, knowing damn well it will go down the same black whole as all the trillions in the past.

And nobody talks about it.

It's business as usual.

The greatest grift in the history of Mankind--and Amerikans (or at least those who are even aware of it) shrug and turn back to their mindless social mediating and binge watching.

Yeah, the Empire's moribund.

The only real question is whether we will kill ourselves before the Israelis do it for us.

My only question is when will 18-year old American boys and girls start to have to register for service in the Israel Defense Forces?....

What's that?

What do I think they have been doing for the last 40 years?

You know--you're right!

Another example of Zionist control of the "pro-Palestinian" narrative in the West. Utter some of truths about Jewish genocide of Palestine, using sanitized language, of course; deflect fault from Jewish power itself; and finish off the story by the oldest of "canards"--that the Jews are the victims!

"The United States, Israel’s patron and financier, reveled in the move of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a move seen by Bible Belt religious fundamentalists as a key step to the return of the Christian Messiah and Armageddon. The rest of us, Jews included, are fated to be burned alive."

So we see here in Mr. Margolis' rhetoric the Chomsky-Finkelstein "client state" nonsense--with Israel as puppet for its patron, the US, which is itself controlled by the dimwitted dispensationalist, with the end result being the revival of the Holocaust.

Axiom: The Jewish Zionist confederation dictates US policy and practice, foreign and (insofar as it concerns them) domestic. It isn't some mere "lobby" (thanks to the shabbat goyim Harvard and Chicago team for perpetuating that false banality and distracting the oh so earnest "progressive" with a target for his impotent and do-nothing whining over the last 15 years).

Objective: The emergence of a true Palestinian voice in the West that pulls no punches and demands the obvious--the absorption and disappearance of the "Jewish and Democratic State" into the Nation of Palestine.

One step: Discredit and crush the Jewish Zionist voice that pretends to champion Palestine by exposing its intrinsic Zionism.

Alison Weir is not a Jew. But I don't fault the mistake.

The Jew controls the "pro-Palestinian" and "anti-Zionist" "narrative" in the West. It controls the language on all sides of any discussion of the loathsome "Jewish and Democratic State." Only the Jew is permitted to issue the occasional, mild rebuke of the Jew state. And when he does, the State is condemned for betraying "Jewish values"! As if "Jewish values" were anything other than the foul outflow of centuries of self-loathing, apoplectic resentiment of the "other," a spirit driven by a seething and vindictive hatred the likes of which have despoiled no other people in history. The goyim who "dares speak out" is immediately crushed under a wave or "anti-Semitic" defamation. Even Jews who speak the unvarnished truth are swept to the margins--Finkelstein, for example.

The West hears the "Palestinian voice" from the mouth of the Jew.
