Hello. Rudi --

These recent posts read like a storm from net trolls doing multiple victory laps ... over your lapse.
So, you're somebody after all!

Hundreds of thousands killed, millions displaced. Cities leveled. Are they expected to just blow it all off?

One American contractor killed. Time for WWIV.

A co-ordinated response would be welcome. So far, neither Syria nor Lebanon has answered any of the attacks from their south.

What's that sandwich item called when the burger's missing the meat? I tend to agree that the lack of real substance indicates a kind of 'do loop' distraction, whereas total embarrasment for the NYT is nearly as appealing as the entire affair to date.  Bangkok, huh?  Ooh! Maybe there's something seismic at play.

Hundreds of Jewish Settlers Raid Al-Aqsa Mosque
http://www.palestinechronicle.com/hundreds-of-jewish-settlers-raid-al-aqsa-mosque/

Protected by the Israeli police, 244 Israelis today raided Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Palestinian Ministry of Religious Endowment said.

According to a statement issued by the ministry, 99 settlers, 97 students from religious schools, 40 government employees and eight intelligence officers raided the holy site.

The statement also said that the settlers performed Talmudic rituals and carried out provocative actions before leaving the mosque from Chain Gate.

Israeli settlers raid Al-Aqsa Mosque on a daily bases and perform Talmudic rituals inside its Yards, while occupation forces limit access to Muslim worshippers during these times.

Open, threatening and offensive disrespect for the local people at the highest level ... not even covered in the Jew-controlled world press ... including Al-Jazeera ... is tantamount to an Israeli declaration of war on the entire Muslim World.  The bold move represents another violation of the original terms of allowing refuge for Jews from around the world in the former Palestine as contracted in the Balfour Declaration.  The response is slowed by as much damage as has been visited upon the entire region ... primarily waged as artificial proxy wars against Arab populations at Israel's behest ... but the outcome should certainly entail grim losses for the fearless violators who hopelessly pretend to believe God is on their side, as if it's never backfired on them before.

MH17 probe releases new phone calls linking suspects to top Russian officials
https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2019/11/14/mh17-probe-releases-new-phone-calls-linking-suspects-to-top-russian-officials

THE HAGUE (AFP): A Dutch-led probe into the shooting-down of flight MH17 over Ukraine in 2014 released new intercepted phone calls on Thursday (Nov 14) between high-ranking Russian officials and suspects facing trial over the crash.

Investigators said they were making a "new witness appeal" based on "recorded telephone calls between the leaders of the DPR (Donetsk People's Republic, a separatist group) and high-ranking Russian officials".

"Ties between Russian officials and DPR leaders appear to have been much closer" than originally believed, Andy Kraag, the head of Dutch police's Criminal Investigations Division, said in a video statement.

Netanyahu on Steroids: What a Gantz-led Government Means for Palestine
http://www.palestinechronicle.com/netanyahu-on-steroids-what-a-gantz-led-government-means-for-palestine/
Ramzy Baroud

Experience has taught Palestinians not to pay heed to Israeli elections. But to every rule, there is an exception.

Although it is still true that no Israeli Zionist leader has ever been kind to the Palestinian people, the dynamics of the latest Israeli elections on September 17 are likely to affect the Occupied Palestinian Territories in a profound way.

Indeed, the outcome of the elections seems to have ushered in a new age in Israel, ideologically and politically. But the same claim can also be made regarding its potential influence on Palestinians, who should now brace themselves for war in Gaza and annexation in the West Bank.

Former chief of general staff of the Israeli army, Benny Gantz, who had orchestrated the destructive war on the besieged Gaza Strip in 2014, is likely to be tasked with the job of forming Israel’s new government. Gantz had recently boasted about sending “parts of Gaza back to the Stone Age”.

University Study Finds Fire Did Not Bring Down World Trade Center Building 7 on 9/11
https://www.ae911truth.org/news/561-university-study-finds-fire-did-not-bring-down-world-trade-center-building-7-on-9-11

On September 11, 2001, at 5:20 PM, the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 collapsed into its footprint, falling more than 100 feet at the rate of gravity for 2.5 seconds of its seven-second destruction.

Today, we at Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth are pleased to partner with the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) in releasing the draft report of a four-year computer modeling study of WTC 7’s collapse conducted by researchers in the university's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

The release of the draft report begins a two-month period during which the public is invited to submit comments. The final report will be published later this year.

We invite you to read the report and to watch Dr. Leroy Hulsey’s September 3rd presentation at the UAF campus, where he first announced his team’s findings.

MANILA, Philippines – In his bilateral meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday night, President Rodrigo Duterte insisted that the 2016 Hague ruling on the South China Sea was “final, binding and not subject to appeal,” but the Chinese leader rejected the Philippines’ legal victory.

In a statement early Friday, presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said Duterte was “steadfast in raising with President Xi concerns central to the Philippines’ claim in the West Philippine Sea (WPS), which include the ruling held by the Permanent Court of Arbitration in the Hague.”

MOFA says Taiwan 'not for sale' in response to White House petition to buy Taiwan
https://www.taiwannews.com.tw/en/news/3769163
Keoni Everington

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- After a petition calling for the U.S. to purchase Taiwan surfaced on Tuesday (Aug. 27) on the White House's petition website, Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) today (Aug. 29) said Taiwan is "not for sale."

Two weeks ago, U.S. President Donald Trump started to seem to seriously consider buying Greenland from Denmark. However, on Aug. 18 Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen called the idea an "absurd discussion," prompting Trump to announce on Aug. 20 that with Greenland off the table, he would cancel the September visit to Denmark.

A week later, on Tuesday, a person only identified as "C.C." posted a petition titled "Purchase Taiwan" on the White House's petition website "We the People." In the petition, the author referred to Taiwan as "the unsinkable aircraft carrier" and an integral part of the U.S.-Indo-Pacific strategy.

Hinting at Communist China's constant threats of invading Taiwan, the petition describes the country as being on the "frontline of the free world's battle against tyranny and oppression" as it struggles to stave off an "authoritarian regime bent on annexing it." The petition points out that Taiwan shares the values of "democracy, freedom, human rights, and the rule of law" with Americans.

Let's just imagine this wasn't just a publicity stunt and guess at what might be a good estimate of a fair price for Taiwan as a real estate 'item'.

Better yet, why not we sell Alaska to China and call it about even on our outstanding financial profile ... and call it a day?

22 MARCH 2019 — FBI 9/11 Review Commission Lawsuit
https://www.lawyerscommitteefor9-11inquiry.org/22-march-2019-fbi-9-11-review-commission-lawsuit/

For the first time ever, 9/11 family members and advocates are taking legal action against the FBI aimed at forcing the Bureau to assess and report the evidence of the World Trade Center’s explosive demolition as well as other unaddressed 9/11 evidence.

In 2015, the FBI released the final report of its 9/11 Review Commission. Congress mandated the Commission to conduct “an assessment of any evidence now known to the FBI that was not considered by the 9/11 Commission related to any factors that contributed in any manner to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.”

However, the report did not include an assessment of evidence related to the WTC demolition nor an assessment of several other areas of evidence known to the FBI.

Now the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry and AE911Truth need your help to advance our historic lawsuit and bring this key evidence to light.

US probes Deutsche Bank's dealings with Malaysia's 1MDB -WSJ
https://www.nst.com.my/news/nation/2019/07/503442/us-probes-deutsche-banks-dealings-malaysias-1mdb-wsj

The US Justice Department is investigating whether Deutsche Bank AG violated foreign corruption or anti-money-laundering laws in its work for state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), the Wall Street Journal said on Wednesday.

The news comes after the bank announced plans to scrap its global equities unit, cut some fixed-income operations and slash 18,000 jobs globally in a 7.4-billion-euro (US$8.34-billion) restructuring program.

Deutsche Bank’s work for 1MDB included helping to raise US$1.2 billion in 2014 as concerns about the fund’s management and financials had begun to circulate, the newspaper said, citing unidentified people familiar with the matter.

Prosecutors are mainly looking into the role of Tan Boon-Kee, a colleague of a former Goldman Sachs Group Inc executive, Tim Leissner, who worked with him on 1MDB-related business, the paper said.

She left Goldman to become Asia-Pacific head of banking for financial institutions clients at Deutsche Bank, where she was involved with further 1MDB dealings, it added.

In an emailed statement, Deutsche Bank said it had fully cooperated with all regulatory and law enforcement agencies that made inquiries about the fund.

“As stated in asset forfeiture complaints filed by the US Department of Justice, 1MDB made ‘material misrepresentations and omissions to Deutsche Bank officials’ in connection with 1MDB’s transactions with the bank,” the bank told Reuters.

Today's Star features a story with a beaming-faced Najib touting a new alliance between the two main all-Malay parties UMNO & MAS. Good thing for a multi-ethnic ruling party being in place to put them in their place - especially with that skunk still even in their midst, nevermind pulling strings for a ... Malay-rule reality paradigm shift long overdue.

Antifa Terrorist Who Beat Man in Head with Metal Pipe Previously Arrested For ‘Unlawful Use’ of a Slingshot Against Patriot Prayer Group
Violence erupted in Portland, Oregon over the weekend as Antifa terrorists physically assaulted conservatives while police stood by and watched.

Joseph Christian Evans was identified as the Antifa terrorist who beat a man named Adam Kelly with a metal rod over the weekend leaving him with huge bloody gashes on his head.

Adam Kelly was taken to the hospital where doctors stapled his head shut after the Antifa terrorist tried to kill him.

This isn’t the first time Joseph Christian Evans was arrested by Portland police for participating in a violent Antifa melee.

KATU reported last August:

Portland Police quickly broke up the crowds in Saturday’s march at Tom McCall Waterfront in Portland. In the course of eight hours, officers arrested four people, while three others were hurt, sending one person to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. No officers or deputies were hurt in the demonstrations.

* 34-year-old Joseph C Evans was arrested near Southwest 2nd Avenue and Southwest Jefferson Street on charges of recklessly endangering another person and unlawful use of a weapon.

Why isn’t Joseph Christian Evans in prison?

Not a pretty picture, friend ... but one which needs to be much more widely seen. Sorry, but I do feel for this fool as being one of us ... as a wide array of neo-nation victims ... but his fate is out of our hands and yet ... the neocons do still get mileage out of a modicum of 'friendly' human sacrifice like this one. No hangnail issues for them. The deep state is serious business ... same old message ... we must all keep our attention ever fixed on our own back sides.

Goldman Sachs' compensation offer not reasonable, says Dr M

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The Government has been offered a compensation by multinational investment bank, Goldman Sachs, over the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) scandal, says Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The Prime Minister, however, said the sum was not reasonable.

In a Bloomberg interview at the Asean Business Summit in Bangkok on Friday (June 21), he said the amount that was stolen was about US$6.9bil in total including fees for Goldman Sachs.

"Goldman offered RM1bil (but) they made 10% from it," he said.



"In this case (1MDB), from 90% from the money raised but, we (the country) will be facing an interest of 100%," he said.

When asked if the Government is mulling a civil suit on top of the criminal suit, he said that it depends on the Attorney General.

"We would have to examine the case, before taking any action. It is up to the AG to take action," he said.

On Dec 17, the Government filed criminal charges against three subsidiaries of Goldman Sachs Inc over their handling of bonds totalling US$6.5bil (RM27bil) issued by 1MDB.

This was the first time a country has filed criminal charges against the US investment banking giant itself.

It was reported that Goldman Sachs made US$600mil (RM2.5bil) in fees for handling the bonds related to 1MDB.

In terms of recovering the lost money, the Prime Minister said that it was difficult to get all of it back because the money was stolen and the Government does not know where it is.

"If the money is invested in something, we can go to the company and ask for the money back, but the money is stolen and we don't know where it is.

"They are not telling us (where the money is) and a number of people had handled the money. Unless we can squeeze them, we would not know where it is," he said.

According to AG Tommy Thomas, Malaysia has thus far recovered US$322mil; equivalent to about RM1.3bil worth of assets belonging to 1MDB. - Bernama

Goldman Sachs want to settle out of court to avoid embarrassing a list of their clients.  They are just a shield, after all.  It's starting to look like that Jho Low guy may never show up, extradicted or not, at all; and and to think ... this all started with his high hopes of drawing Hollywood celebrities to Penang toward the end of 2010, when gold ... just happened to be at its all-time high.
