Pacific Coast Apocalypse

September 13, 2020

Why is the West of America burning as badly as it is burning? Catastrophic climate change, of course, but it’s also man-made in another way, considerable mismanagement and psychological pressure by self-righteous, corrupt fools (for example most of the influential Trump hating worthies in Marin County). Hundreds of large fires are burning, while writing these lines, millions of people are fleeing or breathing air so foul, they have to stay indoors… with HEPA air filters. I ran twice in the last month, in “hazardous” conditions, the rest of the time, I was inside, but for swimming pool visits. The largest fire, the “August Complex” started as 37 independent fires initiated by a never-seen-before lightning-fire-siege over much of Northern California, has grown twice larger than the largest fire ever recorded in California prior. It’s cruising towards one million acres burned (1.600 square miles, or more than 4,000 square kilometers). This is not savanna burning, but old growth forest, with some of the world’s oldest and tallest trees.

To say I am not surprised is an understatement. I have written essays on the subject, explaining why and how worse the burning will become… and what should be done (the “Live Matter” politicians of the West Coast did… nothing). Consider Climate Catastrophe: California Forests Dying. Giant Fires Coming

Fire Creek, south of Yosemite, getting started. It grew from nothing in a few hours. Thanks to great winds. The fires in Oregon operated similarly. Record winds never seen before transformed the Beachie Creek fire from 450 acres to 130,000 acres, 300 times larger… Overnight. The combination of factors is clearly caused by the greenhouse catastrophe, but lack of stewardship of forests is blatant in California.

The fundamental answer is that the catastrophic climate crash back into the Jurassic climaxes will burn all the forest… LEST we take great care. So was Trump right to suggest that California should take care of its forests? Yes. Is generalized burning a consequence of human generated greenhouse gases? Yes, but. 

Yes but one should and can mitigate the situation: it’s crucial to keep big forests with big trees viable. Instead, what I called the “Cathedral Forest” at Point Reyes, was destroyed. This was ENTIRELY avoidable. According to fire officials the brush reached an (unbelievable more than 30 feet: ten meters). 

This happened because the forest was not in a natural state: there were no mastodonts, or even elks, around. And also there were no Native Americans, who took great care of the giant forests. 

So enormous forests, made of trees several millennia old, went up in smoke and CO2. In the Creek Fire, just immediately south of Yosemite, firemen said the “fire load” was an unbelievable 2,000 tons, two thousand tons, per acre. As 200,000 acres burned, that’s one billion tons of CO2 released, just for one fire (which is not yet in the ten top largest, as they are several of those, presently burning)…

I am a forest runner, and I was increasingly dismayed by the lack of care. What was needed were prescribed burns during the wet season. NIMBY blocked them. That was especially true in Marin County: the national Park wanted to prescribe burns the Cathedral Forest. Guess what? The multi millionaires’ pseudo-progressives of Marin County threatened to sue, lest their air quality would be affected. Now, for a month they have been living in outright “hazardous” air. 

Another factor was Trump Derangement Syndrome: because Trump took away much of their tax rebates, the pseudo-progressives multimillionaires, hate Trump with existential depth. So Trump suggested to clean the forests, and that gave the demented ones a reason not to do it: they call that “resistance” (and direct oceans of money towards Biden, who has promised to bring back the tax advantages of the california millionaire class…)

California or Craplifornia, that is the question: should the state named after the Caliph, or after the Crap it is generating?

Well, both: the concept of Caliph is Crap. Pelosi, an inherited plutocrat and politician, was caught on camera, while violating several laws against the pandemic. Then, not knowing she had been caught, went straight on TV, for the whole US to see her accuse Trump of a “slap in the face of science” about not wearing a mask outside… she had not worn one inside, that’s against the law, in a hair salon, also closed according to the law. The next day her outlawing ways became public. The day after that the governor of California Getty-Newsom, the California Caliph, decided that the laws Pelosi, the Congress Caliph had violated were not really laws anymore, and Caliph Pelosi declared she had been set-up. Trump haters then accused the salon owner of hateful behavior (when actually it’s Pelosi who organized the whole thing with a third party, and the owner, who was in Los Angeles, knew nothing).

Archie Fire, Oregon, September 2020, getting started. These fires are not normal, they are more like what one expects to see after a nuclear bomb… Actually the most famous mushroom cloud picture of Hiroshima, is the picture of the firestorm which followed the atomic bombing, not the bomb itself. These fires on the west Coast (“Left” Coast) are orders of magnitude greater…

Well, Pelosi is viewed by many as a likely war criminal, and she sure collaborated with some, so lying is like breathing for this woman astronomically wealthy from politics, who poses as a… democrat, of all things… when she is clearly a plutocrat of the political corrupt type, the sort which uses politics to become wealthier, on a massive scale.  

For days, the sky was deep brownish-orange… At noon, all cars had their headlights on. It was night all day. This black orange sky, darkness at noon, was just a warning that much worse could happen suddenly. 

In particular, American citizens should remember the 400 Minutemen with up to a total Launch On Warning  (LOW) means a short circuit could cause orange skies all over, this time radioactive. 

LOW is not on the agenda of anyone who claim to be democratic or that lives matter. As far as global heating is concerned things will get way worse. First there are all these forests, ALL OVER, to burn. Call that vegetation change… But the Jurassic climate will not establish itself without turmoil. The sloshing around of Arctic air is just one aspect… Indeed…

I have long owned three powerful HEPA air filters.  Also, although long tempted, and there quite often, I did not purchase a home in the Sierra Nevada. Once, a few years ago, running the Pacific Crest Trail, in a luminous blue sky, I saw a puff of smoke, ten miles to the south. Within minutes it had blossomed to a giant forest fire, with a brown black cloud already all the way into Nevada. It was the only major fire in the West that day, and it headed straight into the city of South Lake Tahoe, and first its airport. The airport has long runways, for the transcontinental jets of the international plutocratic class… The fire was blocked by the airport, showing the plutocrats are sometimes useful…

As it is we are lied to. The very evil-power  (pluto-krat) who threw my own nine year old daughter out of her own school, and her roots, because he hates me, is a trusted environmentalist navigating among his plutocratic colleagues (“Bill”, “Rich”, etc.) and their government servant (“Emmanuel”, etc…) What launched the scandal is that the fiend has invested in artificial grass fields companies to install in public and private schools… I detected this, talked about it, and a school head reported it to “Eric”, and so I got eliminated…

Such are the real leaders of the world. They also engage massively the media they own, and their “Fact Check” organizations,  in deliberate, hysterical Trump Derangement Syndrome, 24/7/365, to distract everybody…

The distraction factor got so high that, talking recently with a professional environmentalist, he was surprised to learn cattle decrease fire loads. There are plenty of papers about it, and anybody who hiked in places where cattle is free to range will tell you so… Herdsmen all over Africa know this. And certainly not just Africa: we know Genghis Khan’s generals knew they could change the climate of China by bringing in the appropriate animals (Genghis rejected their proposal, he refused to destroy China).

Under Obama, the ill-fated reformist who ended mostly reforming backwards, green hydrogen was rejected because his underlings prefer to invest in batteries. So now California gets a considerable part of its energy from wind and solar. Guess what happens with giant fires? They make their own weather… and often so much smoke, they smother themselves… and the wind dies down. And what of sunlight? Well, darkness at noon, all cars with their headlights on, thus no sun energy. Thus, when the heat turns on (California holds the world’s temperature record, 54.6 Centigrade), and Californian turn the air conditioning, there is no more electricity. No worries, the electric utilities cut power to the losers, out in the rural areas. Thus when the fire approaches and the local farmer turns his hose on, no water comes out, because the electric pump doesn’t work. So the farms burn down. No problem, says Pelosi, there is always caviar. And she has two sub zero freezers, each worth 25% of the median US family income, in her Napa valley mansion (and probably the same in her San Francisco, 25 million dollar mansion… And her seven other mansions…) We know this because she boasted of it in a video.

In other words, the blackouts organized by the hare-brained installation of renewable energy without storage are causing death and devastation. Because death there is: dozens were burned to death, millions of lungs were injured.

As all the world’s forests are threatened with massive fires during greenhouse heating back to Jurassic temperatures, the lesson is for the world. Look at Venus: there are reasons to believe the planet may have had oceans and life for billions of years, and became hell all of a sudden because of a CO2 eruption crisis (due to massive volcanism). Hell, right now, is to be led by corrupt idiotic liars, of the same plutocratic party, while believing that’s clever. Plutocrats are bringing us the plutocene, the age of evil, thanks to their misleading media, and the millions of mental lemmings they spawn.

To this day, most Californians cannot afford tile roofs, so their houses burn readily; a law to impose tile roofs, to reduce the loss of California cities to fire was abandoned, because… California can’t afford it; in the Roman empire, tile roofs were standard, so houses resisted forest fires; Romans were wealthier than Californians that way.

Plague, social unrest, lunatics in the street, heat as never experienced before, orange sky, darkness at noon, unbreathable “hazardous” air for a month, smoke with fifty meters visibility over county after county, single fires spanning seven countries, fire tornadoes, towns burned in minutes, blackouts, brush thirty feet high, immensely wealthy politicians in power for five decades claiming Trump did it… This is just a warning of global madness at noon, an appetizer…

One thing only is clear: if we want a better situation, it will have to start with better thinking.

Betrayed By Its Chief Mercenary: How The 9/11 Tragedy Hides An Ongoing Hoax

September 11, 2020

Systemic lying, as deep as the Deeply Plutocratic State goes… The USA went to war in the Middle East because of a hoax perpetrated by oil and financial plutocrats, and their obsequious, greedy little servants. The Bin Laden saga was a minor act in the whole picture, which spans now a full century. But the US population does not know any better, because it does not read enough, can’t read the really revealing stuff, and is expertly lied to by plutocratic organization such as the brazenly named “Factcheck.org” (which claims, against all international evidence, that the USA had nothing to do with Bin Laden).

A hoax is a falsehood deliberately fabricated to masquerade as the truth. It is distinguishable from errors in observation or judgment, rumors, urban legends. The hoax, the imposture, the falsehood that 9/11 hides is that US policies didn’t cause 9/11. They did, in detail: the terrorist masterminds were, for many years, used as mercenaries by the USA. These policies of manipulating Muslim Fundamentalist mercenaries are as old as the investment of US oil plutocrats with the Saudis (themselves hereditary plutocrats forming what is called a monarchy)… in the 1930s. An accord was found where Saudi money from oil receipts would be recycled on Wall Street, and the Wahhabist (a hard core literralist sect of Islam founded in the 18 C) will keep the global plutocratic order firmly in command, and revolution down. 

When US propaganda presents 9/11 its all about profiles in courage, tragedy, and noble suffering. There is never an attempt to find out what truly happened. Here is President Donald Trump on 9/11/20:

“On that September morning when America was under attack, the battle turned in the skies above this field. Soon after taking off from Newark, New Jersey, radical Islamic terrorists seized control of United 93. Other hijacked planes struck the North tower of the World Trade Center, and then the South tower, and then the Pentagon. The terrorists on Flight 93 had a fourth target in mind, it was called our nation’s capitol.

They were just 20 minutes away from reaching their sinister objective. The only thing that stood between the enemy and a deadly strike at the heart of American democracy was the courage and resolve of 40 men and women. The amazing passengers and crew of Flight 93.

Donald and Jean Peterson were grandparents traveling to vacation in California. Deora Bodley was a student headed back to college. Richard Guadagno was returning from celebrating his grandmother’s 100th birthday. Lauren Caruzzi Grandcolas was three months pregnant with her first child.

Every passenger and crew member on the plane had a life filled with love and joy, friends and family, radiant hopes and limitless dreams. When the plane was hijacked, they called their families and learned that America was also under attack. Then they faced the most fateful moment of their lives. Through the heartache and the tears, they prayed to God, they placed their last calls home, they whispered the immortal words, I love you. Today, those words ring out across these sacred grounds and they shine down on us from Heaven above.

When terrorists raised to destroy the seat of our democracy, the 40 of Flight 93 did the most American of things. They took a vote, and then they acted. Together, they charged the cockpit. They confronted the pure evil. And, in their last act on this earth, they saved our capital. In this Pennsylvania field, the 40 intrepid souls of Flight 93 died as true heroes. Their momentous deeds will outlive us all.

All very beautiful and correct, and I do not condemn Trump for any of these words, after all, he has an election coming driven by some of the biggest powerful liars around. What I do condemn is the US intellectual leadership, which, nineteen years after 9/11, as not examined what really happened, or why the elite head terrorist mercenary of the USA, Osama Bin Laden, turned against his employer.

Oops. Something is revealed, but propaganda damage control means that the US population is still not suspecting, to this day, that this particular collapse was the work of US mercenaries and US politics, since the 1930s, at the very least. (The British had heavily supported the Saudis in the 1920s, killing at least 20,000 to help Arab tyrant king Abdulaziz Ibn Saud… It’s likely the US government at the very least knew and approved.)

***

And why terrorist in chief Obama ordered Osama bin Laden killed:

Let’s put my New York Times subscription to work, after a full week or two of total censorship of my comments… As told by the NYT in “How 4 Federal Lawyers Paved the Way to Kill Osama bin LadenBy Charlie Savage, Oct. 28, 2015

… “a few other lawyers were eventually told the secret. But the White House kept senior lawyers at the Justice and State Departments in the dark… Thomas E. Donilon, national security adviser to Mr. Obama decided that there was no need for the Attorney General to know. AG Holder was briefed the day before the raid, long after the legal questions had been resolved… the four lawyers conferred in secure conference calls and … as the possible date for a raid neared, Mr. Preston grew tense and proposed writing the memos. Mr. Johnson wrote one on violating Pakistani sovereignty. When two countries are not at war, international law generally forbids one from using force on the other’s soil without consent. .. The lawyers decided that a unilateral military incursion would be lawful because of a disputed exception to sovereignty for situations in which a government is “unwilling or unable” to suppress a threat to others emanating from its soil.

Invoking this exception was a legal stretch, for two reasons. Many countries have not accepted its legitimacy. And there was no precedent for applying it to a situation in which the United States did not first ask Pakistan, which had helped with or granted consent for other counterterrorism operations… There was also a trump card. While the lawyers believed that Mr. Obama was bound to obey domestic law, they also believed he could decide to violate international law when authorizing a “covert” action, officials said…. some officials thought the SEALs might be able to slip back out, allowing the United States to pretend the raid never happened.

The lawyers also grappled with whether it was lawful for the SEAL team to go in intending to kill Bin Laden… They agreed that it would be legal, in a memo written by Ms. DeRosa, and Mr. Obama later EXPLICITLY ORDERED A KILL MISSION, officials said…

The lawyers also considered writing a memo describing their earlier analysis about what to do with any other living prisoners taken out of the compound, but did not write it because the final plan did not call for the SEALs to leave with anyone else.”

So here we have democracy and worldwide terrorism, and evasion of justice by four unelected lawyers nobody has ever heard of. And good errant boy Obama does what his masters told him to do, as usual…

This is all pretty incredible. When the First World War got launched, Austro-Hungary sent an ultimatum to its enemy Serbia, because Serbian terrorists and a Serbian based terrorist organization, the “Black Hand” had organized an elaborate plot to kill the de facto quasi-head of state and future emperor. The ultimatum requested many things, including full Austrian-Hungarian powers in Serbia to find out about the various conspirators. Serbia agreed to all, but for the last condition. So Austro-Hungary declared war. That took a few weeks. 

Instead the US leaders, under Obama, a century after the assassination in Sarajevo, decided to make the USA behave like a rogue state, by taking the law in their own hands inside another country.

Bin Laden could have been captured. He had no time to surrender, but he  was not resisting… said the SEALS who had got the kill order, Bin Laden was behind his wife with his hands on her shoulders. He was shot twice in the forehead, then some more once on the ground.

What does that remind you of?

Mafia style. 

Truth is Bin Laden as was a soldier of America, who got enraged for some reason(s), and found dozens of thousands of other mercenaries for America who got similarly enraged, if not millions… We wanted to hear the details, how the CIA and SIA recruited him, and instructed him (to go bomb little girls’ schools in Afghanistan). The powers that be, you promised the world to the prostitute in chief, knew better. They instructed him to get rid of Bin Laden, because Bin Laden knew too much.

Better, feel the global plutocrats who pull the strings to have entire generations who do not know that a “Democratic” US president launched the war in Afghanistan

Evil organizations such as “Factcheck.org” claim that the assertion of Senator Rand Paul that Bin Laden was a US agent is a “urban myth”:  

https://www.factcheck.org/2013/02/rand-pauls-bin-laden-claim-is-urban-myth/ 

What Senator Rand wrote was that: Paul, Feb. 6: In the 1980s the war caucus in Congress armed bin Laden and the mujahideen in their fight with the Soviet Union. In fact, it was the official position of the State Department to support radical jihad against the Soviets. We all know how well that worked out. 

Factcheck says this is false, there is “no evidence for it”. Factcheck is lying, following the BIG LIE technique. Well, there is no evidence in the US, because it has been cleansed with Putin like efficiency. Evidence exists, but not inside the USA, except on tiny sites such as your’s truly: such evidence was actively suppressed, while top US leaders boasted of the opposite overseas… with the obvious idea of terrifying the rest of the planet with the concept that US leaders would kill millions, well, just because they could. 

The Muslim Fundamentalist war the US leaders imposed onto Afghanistan and also, with variants, in Iraq, Iran, Syria had the overall aim to create strife: divide et impera! Divide and order around with the power of life and death…

Factcheck is financed by the plutocratic Annenberg Foundation at the direction of the late Walter Annenberg, grants from the Flora Family Foundation, and financial support from the evil worldwide monopolies known as Facebook and Google…

And how does Factcheck Org’s lie technically work? Simple. Evidence that Bin Laden met with CIA operatives is blocked in the USA, so there is no evidence for it… In the USA. Also all the contacts which were enormous and extensive, were made not through the ISI of Pakistan (as Factcheck luridly claims) but through the SIA (Saudi Intelligence Agency). So technically, those liars claim they are not lying. Notice that when they claim that the CIA and the Pakistani had nothing to do with Bin Laden, the monopolistically plutocratically financed “Factcheck.org” forgets to make any mention of the CIA alter ego, the SIA…

In truth, US secret services and organizations and individuals gravitating in the vicinity, or vice versa, have long used Muslim Fundamentalism, in Egypt, Iran, North Africa, etc… already in the 1940s…

Notes: Walter Hubert Annenberg (March 13, 1908 – October 1, 2002), son of a US media plutocrat, was himself an even bigger plutocrat, who founded the giant Annenberg Foundation. An American businessman, investor, philanthropist, and diplomat. Annenberg owned and operated Triangle Publications, which included ownership of The Philadelphia Inquirer, TV Guide, the Daily Racing Form, A+ Magazine, Essence, Star & Sky Magazine, Elementary Electronics, Playboy, The Saturday Evening Post, The Atlantic Monthly, and Seventeen magazine. He was appointed by President Richard Nixon as United States Ambassador to the United Kingdom, where he served from 1969 to 1974.

The Flora Foundation, with a capital in the dozens of billions, emanates from the Hewlett family fortune. One of its present (2020) heirs (yes, foundations have heirs, that’s the whole idea!), officers and worldwide plutocrats, greasing the wheels of abuse worldwide, in the name of the environment, intervened to punish me by having my nine year old daughter thrown out of the Franco-American school she had attended since the age of four. They kept the money. I was made to understand that things would get way worse if I complained in public… The creature is a first name friend of many of the usual suspects, and their employees, such as the French president.

Factcheck.Org claims no journalist ever said what Senator Rand Paul said. They don’t read French, they just read plutocrat, that’s all they need to live well. Here is “The Exemplary student of CIA turned against his master”:

L’élève exemplaire de la CIA s’est retourné contre son maître

Mardi 3 Mai 2011

La créature a échappé à son créateur. Le chef terroriste, qui a longtemps servi les intérêts de Washington en Afghanistan contre l’Union soviétique, a été formé par les services US.

Car, avant d’être l’un des hommes les plus recherchés par le FBI, le multimillionnaire était un allié précieux des États-Unis.

Né en 1957 en Arabie saoudite, Oussama Ben Laden serait le 17e fils d’une grande fratrie d’un richissime constructeur d’origine yéménite. Ce dernier contrôle près de 80 % du marché des travaux publics de la pétro-monarchie semi-féodale. Le régime de Riyad, issu du wahhabisme (islam rigoriste et rétrograde), finance ici et souvent là des mouvements armés islamistes. Washington le sait mais ferme les yeux, la dynastie royale est un fidèle pivot de la stratégie américaine dans la péninsule Arabique, et un fournisseur pétrolier de la première puissance mondiale. Durant ses études d’ingénieur, Oussama Ben Laden se rapproche des Frères musulmans, embrasse les thèses fondamentalistes. En 1978, il gagne la confiance du chef des services secrets saoudiens, le prince Turki Ibn Fayçal, qui le place à la tête d’un réseau chargé de recruter des hommes prêts à combattre en Afghanistan. Un an plus tard, l’intervention dans ce pays de l’Union soviétique est à l’origine de son rapprochement avec la CIA. Il partage l’objectif d’en finir avec « l’empire du mal », selon l’expression de Ronald Reagan. La lutte contre le communisme vaut bien quelques alliances qui peuvent paraître contre-nature. Ben Laden s’installe à la frontière pakistano-afghane, et fournit, en grand argentier qu’il est, armes et entraînements aux combattants antisoviétiques, grâce à l’appui de la CIA. Certains voient là l’origine d’al-Qaida, la « base » en arabe. Au passage, il poursuit son prosélytisme, en finançant la construction d’édifices religieux où prêchera, notamment, le futur Mollah Omar, chef des talibans afghans.

Une fois la guerre finie, Ben Laden poursuit ses activités d’agent secret à Peshawar pour le compte du régime saoudien. Il continue d’armer ceux qui se revendiquent d’un islamisme pur et dur, suivant un tracé géostratégique qui suit les intérêts nord-américains. C’est donc peu dire que les États-Unis ne trouvent rien à redire à ses faits et gestes. Jusqu’à la guerre en Irak, en 1990. L’Arabie saoudite soutient Washington dans son entreprise de faire main basse sur le pétrole contrôlé par Saddam Hussein.

Mess in the Middle East, caused by the oil thirsty and imperium obsessed US Deep State, caused a mess In New York

Global Financial Conspiracy

September 10, 2020

Conspirators have indoctrinated people in the USA to believe that those who believe in conspiracies are insane. That was the most basic insanity to blow people’s minds with. In the present plutocratic global socioeconomy banks lend… to the wealthiest, making the wealthiest, wealthier.

Some decry this as the “capitalism” system, but that terminology is stupid: civilization depends upon capital, and capital enables civilization. Stalinism was extremely capitalistic, and that capital enabled the USSR to make 35,000 tanks, when the “capitalist” German economy could build only a couple of thousands (Hitler himself was stunned by this, adding nobody could have predicted this…).

In 2021 Jane Fraser will become the first woman to run a major Wall Street bank, Citigroup. 

In Race for the World, published in 1999, a book Jane Fraser co-authored, consultants with McKinsey & Co. look at the vast changes in the world’s economy that are altering the way almost everyone does business. The overlords conspire across borders, the rest go bankrupt. The authors believe that geographic barriers to business will virtually disappear over the next 30 years and that the implications for companies could be devastating–or incredibly rewarding. “Over time, the only class that matters will be world class,” write Lowell Bryan, Jane Fraser, Jeremy Oppenheim, and Wilhelm Rall. “All others will be forced to restructure or go out of business.” How do you “restructure” individuals?

Such graphs are legions. Another one, which baffles understanding is the share of financial derivatives (it’s roughly a thousand times that of the US GDP…

Such people, and such beliefs rule the world. Then came, seventeen years later, the fly in the ointment, Donald Trump and his “populist”, not to say popular, national creed.  

The authors of “Race For the World”see world economic integration spurred on by new capital markets, advances in computing and communication technologies, and a rapid decline in government influence. In other words, the plebeians will lose influence. The financial rewards of building a great global firm in the late 1990s are extraordinary. The book provides many strategies for success in the next millennium and includes chapters on the importance of market capitalizations and building “superior intangibles–intellectual property, talent, brands and networks.” Read: conspiracies, graft and corruption. 

Helped by the steady hands of good ghost writers, “Race for the World” was cobbled together from disparate articles from the McKinsey Quarterly. 

Authors start by claiming they were inspired by Jared Diamond’s Guns Germs and Steel. I have long suspected Diamond, in spite of what he may think, to be an accomplice of the established world order [1]. In the ascent at the helm of world finance of someone guided by Diamond’s ideology, we have an interesting hint of that. Tellingly, Diamond, like an academic Don Quixote, keen to make his millions by ingratiating himself to the financial powers that be, focused on a windmill, a form of racism nobody believes in anymore, namely that the brown skins are dumb, and forgot the essence of humanity: culture…

Of this, more later.  

Meanwhile meanie Fraser will enjoy her millions. Citigroup Inc. paid Chief Executive Officer Michael Corbat $24 million for 2019, unchanged from the previous year… Henchmen, and, no doubt, henchwomen, are very well rewarded. After all, their condition has got to be painful, they have to live with their creepy selves, who are living insults to the human race…

[1] Interestingly Diamond’s ideology in GGS is very different from the one he developed by 2009, with “Collapse”… Which is closer to yours truly… Of course, that all makes sense: after GGS, Diamond was wealthy and famous, and he could afford to disagree with the plutocracy (more in interviews than in his books)

Too Much Civilization Can Kill Civilization

September 9, 2020

The French government was too civilized thus lost to the savage, cruel, and self-righteous British plutocrats and land speculators (the so-called “free enterprise”), fully supported the British monarchy: such is the best and most faithful description of what happened in North America, when France, once smartest mistress of the continent, lost Canada, and then Louisiana

There was no slavery in the gigantic continental lands controlled by France, Native Americans were not genocidized, and colonization was very low key. Something similar happened in India. Collaborator Pshakkottai, himself of Indian descent, points out that: In India…”The French were too civilized and lost to the British“. Civilization in excess can kill!

India was conquered by a plutocratic British company, the East India company, gone rogue… And deliberately so, a method inaugurated in Ireland in the 16C, and then pursued in America… And it would give enough propellent to racist German fascism to destroy European supremacy… in a trick which has not been officially observed yet by paid historians from the most prestigious plutocratic universities…

Once in Africa, as a child, I travelled from Senegal, an ex-French colony, to Gambia, an ex-British colony. In a ferry station of the Gambia, on the main thoroughfare, there were two large sets of toilets. I was stunned: a hundred feet to the left were the toilets for “Ladies” and “Gentlemen” of the master race. Far to the right were the toilets of the “Males” and “Females”, the male and female primates whose ancestors had dwelled on that continent for millennia.

When France Controlled North America

The territories around Hudson Bay were lost to the British after the disastrous war of the Spanish Succession, which brought France nothing but losses of territory, including in Europe. That war and his treaty of Utrecht was the (still) much admired homicidal tyrant Louis XIV’s ultimate disaster, the root of which was his genocidal policy against Protestants. Don’t expect to read this in French history textbook, which are still forgetting to cut Louis XIV’s head, more than three centuries after his Hitler-like atrocities…

To be allowed to go live in Canada, French citizens had to demonstrate superior moral standards to the French administration: females condemned for loitering or prostitution didn’t qualify, nor did vagabonds. The English, by contrast, sent their worst, their convicts, often sparing them hanging from a rope. There were plenty of these lowlives in England: whereas French peasants owned their land, however small and miserable, the English did not, but were working for lords. When they didn’t, they joined the cities, and if they didn’t find employment there either, they would be homeless, and that was illegal. So they were deported to America. The same game was played, two centuries later, with Australia. Meanwhile, France, which used to have more than three times the population of England, saw its population advantage disappear: French peasants were keen to leave inheritance to their children, and that meant fewer heirs, so they practiced contraception.

Friend Stephen Jones objected to having such a thing as too civilized a behavior:

Huh? Let’s have less civilization?

Is your premise that civilization itself is responsible for genocides and wars?

I answered as follows: Dear Stephen Jones: That to “have too much civilization” can lose wars is not my premise, but my conclusion. The premise that “civilization itself is responsible for genocides and wars” is an idea so ridiculous that it took Rousseau, that crafty prostitute, to launch it successfully. This tenacious philosophy has been popular with mental retards of academic persuasion, as it enabled them to triumph

Ancient Republican Romans knew how ridiculous the idea was, thus Plebeians, more often than not, voted for better educated “Patricians” to lead them: the Plebeians viewed the Patricians as more civilized. The nefarious mood that civilization was nefarious was picked up by Marx, who advocated “dictatorship of the Proletariat”, and then by various advocates of blood red flags, including Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler (who devised the Swastika, this spider gorged with blood, deliberately so).

And then the mood from Rousseau that civilization was nefarious was amplified further by what US plutocratic universities call “French Theory”. That’s basically the nihilistic theory that there is no such thing as civilization. Only idiots who have never nearly stepped on a snake as I did while running yesterday (I knew it was snake weather, but when I had a momentary lapse of reason, a snake dashed; somehow, while squealing my leg stayed up in the air while the other provided supplementary lift… Snake survived, barely…)… only idiots believe all cultures are identical. Many times I was brought to hospitals in pretty bad shape, in Africa, Europe, America, and thanked the gods of humanity for medical care, civilization…

The French Mission Civilisatrice Was Destroyed By British Slash and Burn:

The French arrived in North America a century before the British. When they consulted with the Native Americans, the French leaders were told that trading was welcome. However, Native American leaders informed Jacque Cartier that settlers were not welcome. Nearly a century later, arriving at the exact same spot as the Mayflower settlement a few years later, Champlain observed that Native American settlements of the land were so extensive that it left no room for French settlers.  Within a century, most of North America was under French control, as “Louisiana” and “Canada”. But it was military and trading control, and the “mission civilisatrice” was in full swing. However the French had not launched a colonization program.

Along the Atlantic seaboard, the English colonies had implemented a genocide against the Natives, as early as 1609 CE:

As Chief Powhatan said:

“Your coming is not for trade, but to invade my people and possess my country…Having seen the death of all my people thrice… I know the difference between peace and war better than any other Country.”

As early as 1610 CE, the two commanders of Jamestown, Thomas Dale and Thomas Gates viewed Native American presence strictly as a “military problem”. Then they decided they couldn’t solve it militarily. As the colonists were about to head out into the open sea, they were met by the incoming fleet of Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr. Taking command as governor, de la Warr ordered Jamestown reoccupied. He plotted annihilation of the surrounding tribes. In July 1610 he sent Gates against the Kecoughtan Native American nation. “Gates lured the Indians into the open by means of music-and-dance act by his drummer, and then slaughtered them“. This was the First Anglo-Powhatan War. The English, led by Samuel Argall, captured Pocahontas, daughter of Powhatan, and held her hostage until he would agree to their demands.

Shortly after, the colonists in Massachusetts introduced slavery in North America (alerted to this by yours truly the New York Times then started their “1619 Project”, to draw attention to what really happened during the foundation of the English colonies.

Alternate History: Could history have been different?

To redraw history is complex: the French would have needed to change towards a colonization mindset, and send their degenerates, thugs and derelicts to America… Or their Huguenots… And that was actually attempted in the Sixteenth Century. This happened in the Carolinas (named this way by French settlers). But then the fascist war criminal Philippe II of Spain annihilated those colonies, down to the last baby.  Bad luck intervened: the relief French fleet was destroyed by a hurricane. Or why the USA speaks poorly pronounced French…

Should history be redrawn?

As it is the USA is a giant United Europe. It was founded in blood and gore… But arguably, not much more blood and gore than what was needed to make the “mission civilisatrice” proceed. similarly to what the new city of Rome achieved until it massacred the population of the neighboring Veii, largest and wealthiest Etruscan city (396 BCE). the genocide at Veii was followed, within six years, with very bad behavior “contrary to the laws of nations” say Livy, of its envoy, the Fabii brothers. Outraged, the offended Gauls attacked, routed the Romans, and conquered Rome (390 BCE).  

Were history to be redrawn, it would have to be redone in such a way that the French would have been able to build a strong enough civilization in North America. That would have required tougher ways, those one calls “less civilized”. 

“Less civilized” ways have to be well targeted. If the idiot known as the “Sun King” had directed his energy towards the conquest of North America, instead of destroying the French elite (not just the Huguenots), and making little plots in Europe (war of the Spanish Succession), France could have civilized America… instead of letting English plutocrats (and their tobacco slave plantations) do it. But then Louis XIV was following well established French ways: the French elite had known about America and its “Indians” for more than 150 years, in great detail: a massive “Indian” fair had been held in the early Sixteenth Century, and even the king came. But the consensus in France was that trading with the Indians was fair, and so was the “mission civilisatrice” but not much beyond that was. And the mission civilisatrice backfired as the French-civilized Indians were killed by people of the fiercer sorts (including English land speculators a la George Washington)…

When the Anglo colonial imperialist genociders pushed west, some of their fiercest opponents were descendants of French “coureurs des bois” and “trappeurs”. Resistance to US imperialism in Colorado was led to such French (five resisting brothers were all killed by the US). The same sort of thing happened in Canada. As it happened the French mood and French methods of trading, civilizing, and interbreeding won in the end (but too late for comfort). They were used in parts of the USA. Collaborator Don Kemerling points out: 

“I grew up in Missouri. There are no reservations. The deal was that individuals could own land and attend schools. I grew up next door to an Indian family who owned land, and were our best family friends. My father mentioned their origin a couple of times, associating the skills of the father at hunting and fishing with his ancestry. It didn’t mean much to me then, but I went to see his widow with my mother and grandmother once, and was suddenly struck at the family portrait, which clearly showed their darker skin and associated features.

They fully assimilated, marrying white people. One son was my supervisor at a company where I worked, for a while. There was no mention of it. It was not an issue. I like to think that instead of genocide, there was much more such assimilation than is recognized. Of course, many died of disease too, but I expect that intermarriage strengthened their ability to survive disease.”

Interbreeding indeed increases resistance to disease. American Natives were mostly isolated from the Eurasiatic-African land mass, a biological supercontinent if there ever was one, for at least fifteen thousand years: only a few hardy, healthy, thus non-contagious, mariners came across the Pacific and the Bering Strait. Thus their immune system got selected to be leaner and weaker. European diseases devastated them. Both in North and South America, the arrival of the Conquistadores was preceded by the death of much, when not most, of the population. The same happened after Champlain’s expedition: the area where the Mayflower would make land was mostly empty when it arrived. However there were still lots of Natives alive, and they learned fast. The English colonies had to conduct a systemic policy of invasion, translocation, and extermination. Several US presidents (Washington, Jefferson, Jackson) became great practitioners of the art of cancellation of the Natives.

If he read those lines, the Chinese dictator Xi could say: ‘I told you so, I need to be tough enough to gather enough power!’ Indeed Qin united China by force, 22 centuries ago. However, Qin succeeded because, like Rome, Qin claimed and practiced more than most, the rule of law. The one and only law, human and humane law. 

Xi is forgetting that crucial characteristic. Communist Party forever dictatorship is not sustainable. Ultimately, China failed as a state in the preceding millennium, because it was too dictatorial (the very dispersion of authority in the European Feudal System made it less dictatorial, and less intellectually fascistic: free thinkers could generally find a sympathetic potentate… at least outside of places where the Catholic Inquisition exerted its terror, as a crutch to despicable dictatorship as found in the Iberian peninsula, or the Vatican). 

***

Intelligence Does What Is Necessary Best, Including Violence As Needed:

And last, but not least; ultimately power rests on mental power. Dictatorships are less good at creating mental power than democracies. They make do with theft (see the USSR, Putin Russia, Xi China). But stealing goes only so far: it makes one nastier, not more intelligent. Both the Roman state and various Chinese dynasties found themselves in situations when their mental expertise was not enough to solve the problems which crushed them…

 

Individuals who have been indoctrinated by nihilists and jealous inferior thinkers to hate civilization object to the very notion of “civilization”. However, civilization means to live in cities. Cities have high human density, so they require high human dispute resolution. They require intensive agriculture. This is exactly what the French promoted among the Native Canadians. It worked. The Hurons and fellow nations, adopting French agriculture, learned to live in farms. That enabled the Iroquois confederacy, then allied and armed by the British, to swoop down and massacre them all. French Jesuits didn’t thank the Lord. 

The French leaders never saw the conquest of America as the military problem it was. Their mission civilisatrice failed  for a number of reasons, including the fact France’s longest ruling monarch, Louis XIV was a barbarian and criminal against humanity. But, overall, France was too… Zen. Letting British plutocrats run amok happened, in part because the French aristocracy despised merchants and thieves… instead of putting them in the lead (as Queen Elizabeth already did with Drake and company, who made the kernel of what became the Ireland conquerors, the West Country Men…)

So the verdict? 

It’s all a question of balance. Civilization needs to strike the right balance. Talking to the Nazis or the Japanese imperial military-industrial complex with flowers didn’t work. What worked were bombs. Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we know know, were highly successful… considering the alternatives prepared by the Jap High Command, and, inevitably the Allied (mostly US) High Command, which had anticipated them… without the Japanese surrender following Hiroshima and Nagasaki, atomic bombings next to the beach heads (as planned), gas (as planned) were not needed… Hiroshima and Nagasaki were also warnings to the future: see and consider what happens after atomic bombings. The two atom bombings were just the right amount of craftly designed savagery to hasten Japanese surrender (the third planned Plutonium bombing, against Sapporo, was delayed by US generals… Marshall (Joint Chief) and Groves (head of Manhattan Project: they were obviously not too keen to destroy civilians as if they were cockroaches…).

Where I am presently, in North California, we are experiencing what can only be described as nuclear winter, as the vegetation of California is turned into smoke, under climate change, as I predicted would happen, long ago…

Another thing that nobody believes, erroneously, is that the gigantic nuclear arsenals (mostly in the US and Russia) are of no consequence… When it is known, by anybody having read on the subject enough, that a short circuit can terminate civilization as we enjoy it now.

Some, baffled, may wonder: What is the connection with violence? A Norwegian Parliamentarian today nominated  Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize (for a peace treaty between the UAE and Israel). What is urgently needed is a bit more mental violence… to reduce the number of nuclear warheads below a total number of one thousand thermonuclear warheads… Enough warheads to be ready to detour a rogue comet, or smash an uppity dictator sneaking around with WMDs… But not so many warheads as to be able to destroy civilization… So quite a bit more violence here, now, is needed against the ideas and moods which lead us… to forecasted disaster.

Proof Of Existence Of Square Root Of Two For Ten Year Old (Take That, Euclid!)

September 6, 2020

Yesterday my ten year old daughter cried like I have not seen her cry since her grandmother died. Tears were running down her cheeks:”Cela n’a aucun sens!” It makes no sense! It was a telling choice of words: the Greek mathematicians made the exact same observation, they called such numbers “irrational”. I reassured her: she was brutally confronted by what drove ancient Greek mathematicians crazy: the square root of two.

How to define square roots algebraically is simple: x is the square root of a if and only if: xx = a… No problem if a is one, four, nine… But put a = 2, and a mystery arises: one can write down numbers ever closer to x = square root of two, but then what? Their squares are never quite two… Worse: ancient Greek mathematicians knew (positive) integers, and their ratios, say m/n, where both m and n are integers. They could demonstrate, in a few lines, that square root of two was not a fraction. 

Mathematics is the way of thinking that is most powerful in some situations. For example, as I wrote: xx = 2, I used no less than three mathematical notions that the ancient Greeks mathematicians did not have: the notion of equation, the equal sign, and the notion of unknown x.  

When the Greeks were confronted to this, they realized that some things existed that should not exist, according to their (mathematical) system of thought. Obviously, their mathematics came short. They discovered “irrational” numbers, the hard way. Further reasonings were halted by the rise of fascism in the Hellenistic and then Roman world. Do we have similar situations nowadays? Obviously yes. Nonlocality in Quantum Physics is an obvious example.

There is a mysterious relationship between numbers and geometry. Draw a line: that’s the x axis. Some distance mark one (1); it is the unit of distance. It does more: it represents the number one. Draw the perpendicular axis, traditionally called the y axis. There too, mark a one. Use the proverbial compass to make the units on the x and y axis the same length. Now one is facing a two dimensional plane. It naturally defines a unit of area, the square of sides equal to one. Cut that square in two to get the area of surface ½, etc… A bit of playing around shows that any square of side s has area ss…

Consider the rectangular triangle from the origin with sides one. The longest side can be used as the base of a square. A quick look shows that this square has area two (2). Thus its side is square root of two. 

This demonstrates that the square root of two exists. 

Ancient Greek mathematicians went that far. And that drove them nuts, as, for them, any “number” had to be of the form m/n, with m and n integers… And the square root of two was not such. 

The reasoning above is mine: it was designed to be understood by a very curious ten year old who is not fanatical about mathematics. So the Pythagorean theorem is demonstrated, in a particular case (the general proof is a somewhat confusing generalization; similar ad hoc geometrical proofs work for other numbers, for example square root of 5).

Why the Greeks knew square root of two was no fraction (= “rational” number):

If (m/n)^2 = 2, with xx = x^2 and m and n having no common factors… Then:

mm = 2 nn… Thus m is even (if m is odd, mm is always odd). So m = 2u. This forces n to be odd, because by hypothesis, m and n don’t have common factors, so can’t both be divided by 2…

Hence, n = 2v + 1, for some integer v… Plugging back in the initial equation mm = 2 nn we get: 2u2u = 2 (2v+ 1) (2v + 1). Dividing by 2, we get:

2uu = (2v + 1) (2v +1) = 4vv + 4v + 1…

Now that latter equation is impossible: the left side is even, and the right side is odd… Thus the initial hypothesis, (m/n) (m/n) = 2 is impossible…

Catholicism, Islamism: Better Under Secularism’s Boot

September 5, 2020

Christianism and Islamism are not all bad. However, directly, or indirectly, those ideologies of hyper violent militarized oligarchies mightily contributed to bury civilization under hordes of bloody invaders, and then to kill innovation through lethal cretinization. Unfortunately, most people have no idea of the history, and mix their racist notions with imagined bias found mostly in their own brains rather than the reality of what happened.

Rachel Laudenslager Hunt wrote: …secular authorities trying to co-opt religion in order to increase their power. It’s a tale as old as time.

Patrice Ayme: Dear Rachel: Starting with Roman emperor Constantine following theological tricks of Diocletian, the Roman emperors INVENTED Catholicism (thus indirectly Islam) to rule theocratically…

The Roman Catholic emperors got the fascist theocratic ball rolling, especially Theodosius in 380-381 CE… Those murderous autocrats are the ones who invented the basic set-up embraced by the Islamists three centuries later… Little known, there were direct relations between Catholic authorities and Muhammad, including gifts of slaves from former to latter!

I was there. Isfahan, Iran. Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque (Persian: مسجد شیخ لطف الله‎). The dome is 32 meters high. One of the world’s most beautiful places (a giant place surrounded by superb mosques). The cretinous ban of some interpretation of Islam against representing any biological creations (lest that offend Allah for copyright infringement, apparently) has led to incredibly magnificent art, and even mathematical discoveries…)

Rachel Laudenslager Hunt Says:

“Wow. That’s fascinating. I didn’t know the specifics of the history, but the big picture seems pretty simple. Power hungry maniacs will do and say anything to solidify their control, and religion is an EASY way to do that.”

And didn’t Chinese and Egyptian Emperors also claim divine authority?

Patrice Ayme: All ruling classes have always claimed divine authority. The Indians did it, the Celts did it… But they did it with more or less ferocity. The Romans, who, under the Republic, had the highest moral authority anywhere, cancelled the Celtic and Punic religions, because those used human sacrifices…

The ruling classes are unnatural, anti-human by definition because humanity was created free by biology itself. So the ruling oligarchies invented religions, which tie together the people’s brains in knots. They have to: optimal rule requires to rule over minds, not just bodies. The slave without chains does not rust and is low maintenance, self-managed. Divinization of leaders will always start from secular regimes, as happened in Rome with the emperors.

Even in Venezuela right now, Chavez is becoming god, at least for the ruling class, although the country, society, health care, economy, standard of civilization are all collapsing….

Islam is an imitation of imperial Christianism, and very explicitly so. The archbishop of Alexandria sent two slaves to Muhammad, one of them, a highly educated woman he married and had the immense pleasure to get his first (and last) son with. Jews also promoted Muhammad initially… before he turned against them with a vengeance.

Roman emperors, starting around 70 CE, manufactured what they called, by 321 CE, “Orthodox Catholicism” (Common Opinion Universalism, in Greek). By the Nicaea Council, emperor (and “saint”) Constantine had established his theocracy, which became explicitly murderous against non-believers by 381 CE, under emperor Theodosius I. The empire collapsed by 395 CE, immediately after Theodosius crushed an anti-Christian civil war.

After the empire collapsed, the Franks rebuilt it with a TOLERANT variant of Catholicism, which tolerated all religions, in the old Roman style. However the Muslims imitated what enabled RAIDING (Muhammad said so explicitly, gloating they were going to raid into the rich empires to the north for the first time in 1,000 years…)

The end result was that what was for millennia the world’s wealthiest region, was durably turned into the poorest: remove the oil, what’s left?

Half of my family is from Algeria, BTW… It’s not as if I were talking from books alone. I was there and lived through it. Now, of course, the modern little plot with Fundamental Christianity is recent (1954) and the little plot with Fundamental Wahhabism a bit earlier, but from the same period (1945). This was all amplified by French intellectuals in charge of creating the system of thought of Global US Plutocracy. Yes, even Sartre, De Beauvoir (the latter was definitively a Nazi). A philosophical mood so-called “French Theory” led to the disintegration of the supremacy of mental superiority by claiming all cultures were equal (that mood got launched by the likes of anthropologist Levy-Strauss).

Out of it came Islamophilia, and the outrageous claim that Islamophobia was racism. My family (on both sides) had polite theologicophobia for generations, but is definitively not racist (various so-called “races” are found within)… catholicism ravaged Roman civilization in the Fourth Century, a deadly pandemic of mental degeneracy…

Partha, another reader originally from India pointed out: “Islam is quick to use any means available for warfare.” indeed. At least for the Sunni Islam, especially in its extreme version, Wahhabism, and for the Shia (“the Party”), Islam is a war religion. Anybody who spent three honnest hours reading the Qur’an will get to that conclusion:
https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2009/06/22/some-violence-in-holy-quran/

Thus the mood of proper fundamental Islamists is violent. This is why there is more than 100 variants of Islam. I grew up exposed to thoroughly non-violent types of Islam… Which barred Wahhabists and their ilk of ANY ACCESS to the region since times immemorial…

I would turn things around. Catholicism tried to impose its partly demented moral code, killing dozens of millions in the process. During the European Middle Ages, having Catholicophobia was a sure ticket to assassination or execution. That was all the stranger, as the Secular Roman law was the only law of the civilized parts; Saint Louis, who admitted in writing that nothing would please him more than planting a knife in the belly of a Jew, or an Atheist… and then twist it… had to sadly admit he couldn’t do this, as it was against the LAW (the Roman Secular law, which by the time of Saint Louis was 19 centuries old…)

So here is my practical recommendation: any elected politician in the West who says that Sharia should be applied instead of Republican Secular law, should be immediately impeached. 

All and any religions have positive aspects. Secular Republican law enables to block their negative aspects and foster the positive ones: what is there not to like?

COVID An Act Of War?

September 4, 2020

At the siege of Caffa, the Mongol army used plague cadavers, catapulting them in the Greek city. It was highly successful. Fleeing ships brought the plague to the rest of Europe, in spite of confinement efforts enforced by immediate executions at a distance. Consider: Biological Warfare at the 1346 Siege of Caffa, a CDC article from 2002 (so it was not influenced by anti-Xi devil Donald Trump).

Many “serious”  scientists are all too sure of their science… which is in reality much less scientific than they present it… or sometimes not scientific at all. This has been in full evidence during the COVID epidemic, with disastrous consequences: a lot of scientists, and scientific organizations, came out with definitive statements, or policies about what to do, from masks, to ventilation treatments, only to be contradicted by new facts, sometimes in a matter of days. The result was hundreds of thousands died, and millions got sick.

Right, China crushed the epidemic, but by using old fashion dictatorial ways, in a modern setting… And while sending infected Chinese all around the world… Accident or no accident, that is the question which an international enquiry needs to establish… If the Xi dictatorship spread the virus worldwide deliberately, or semi-deliberately, that’s an act of war… 

Contagion had been know for 30 centuries by the time the Mongols engaged in biological warfare. If one had asked the ancient Greco-Romans, they would have been revolted (we have explicit texts). Sending planes full of COVIDs around the world goes much further than catapults…

Abstract

On the basis of a 14th-century account by the Genoese Gabriele de’ Mussi, the Black Death is widely believed to have reached Europe from the Crimea as the result of a biological warfare attack. This is not only of great historical interest but also relevant to current efforts to evaluate the threat of military or terrorist use of biological weapons. Based on published translations of the de’ Mussi manuscript, other 14th-century accounts of the Black Death, and secondary scholarly literature, I conclude that the claim that biological warfare was used at Caffa is plausible and provides the best explanation of the entry of plague into the city. This theory is consistent with the technology of the times and with contemporary notions of disease causation

The Chinese dictatorship has to explain why it opened Wuhan and Hubei to the world, while closing it to China. 

Why does it have to do so? Around 200 countries and territories have suffered disease and death from COVID. The countries which contained the disease best entertained knowledgeable, yet hostile relationships with the Xi dictatorship. Sending Chinese individuals and goods all around the world because of, and while minimizing, the disease is criminal behavior. we have to determine if that was mass manslaughter, or mass homicide. In either case, the individuals instrumental behind the decisions should be punished, so that the criminality of the dictatorship can be reduced, or mitigated, looking forward…

And then there is a more profound point: the connection between top US plutocrats and the Xi dictatorship. Letters were exchanged, early in the pandemic, for example between dictator Xi and his friend Bill Gates, who controls much of the world economy and society, through Microsoft, his personal immense fortune, his gigantic foundation and countless companies all of these control, one way or another, and the hundreds of politicians, worldwide, having deals with them all (including Xi, the Chinese dictator). Did the global plutocrat encourage top leaders in China to let the virus roll? After all, the more pandemic, the less the probability of Trump being re-elected. And Trump is the ultimate proximal effective enemy of these global plutocrats… Nobody reads the likes of yours truly, as various censorships have been used to limit my reach, for more than a decade… I was told so in parson, more than once, by Islamophiles or European bankers, New York Times editors, etc…. So Trump is where the hope of dismantling the mind making tech monopolies rest…

Strangely enough, I would never have guessed it would get this bad, 20 years ago… And me saying nice things about Trump in this context is stunning (as I used to not like his promotion by banks… long long ago…) I started to guess the truth when I started to get violently censored, just before Obama became president…

In any case, Xi has to answer a lot of questions…

GLOBAL US PLUTOCRACY POWER GRAB CAUSED THE HOLOCAUST: And Why Anti-Trump Forces Lie About It… Because they Love What Global US Plutocracy Brought To Them, Xi And All…

September 3, 2020

Abstract: This is the most hidden, gravest, and most significant fact of twentieth Century history: US global plutocracy gave Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, and even Hirohito, the power and cover-up that they needed to rule. Literally. Power, as in know-how, oil and machinery. US plutocrats cynically manipulated the fascist dictators to dismantle the only power which overshadowed the US plutocracy, the European nations’ global reach (so-called “colonialism”). 

Nobody ever wants to talk about this in those splendid, esteemed US universities, immensely wealthy from having supped with the wealthy devils for so long. They are indeed the best… if evil power (Pluto-kratia) is viewed as best. 

Nixon realized that the global plutocratic project of US based plutocracy was far from over, China was missing. After digesting most of the world in the decades following World War Two, there was the question of China rising again. So Nixon reached out to Mao. Xi and his slaves are the new friends and servants of US based global plutocracy (why Trump always disliked global plutocrats has to do with his family and personal history, and industry, and his analysis of the situation; Trump’s role is not without remembering us of Tiberius Gracchus…). 

This is why it is important and of immediate concern to dissect the lies still rampant about what happened with The Holocaust of World War Two. Of course an entire current of European “Christian” thought, starting with Roman emperors, then German speaking lands (11 C), Saint Louis (13C), then Luther (16 C), and finally concentrated by Prussia, was murderously insane about the Jews… But that doesn’t explain how the Hitler phenomenon happened, and why it was able to get so much out of control. Hitler had extra-European help, help from the Deus Ex Machina, the US global plutocracy.

What explains Hitler as a master policy Germany opted for, is that the dictator thought he had, and was thought to have, by all too many German leaders, the backup of the ultimate powers that be… in the world’s dominating power, the racist USA. When Hitler found out that he had been played, he got naturally completely enraged, he wanted to kill a maximum of people, preferably innocent (The US was already materially, not just diplomatically, helping the Soviets; see [1]). This confluence of causes is in a nutshell what happened with The Holocaust.

Well, Europe got destroyed, and the US plutocracy got its world empire… The main role of US professors in the top US universities, is to cover up that saillant fact of history. They have done an excellent job.

Contrarily to legend, France fought hard in 1940. French tanks destroyed in battle, May 1940. At the time, it was known that the Nazi regime mass-killed already hundreds of thousands of German civilians. think about it. No problem for the “Democratic” administration of US plutocratic president Franklin Roosevelt. Actually, from the US Deep State’s point of view, not helping Europe in a TIMELY manner meant that all European empires were now part of the US worldwide empire. And who cared about civilians, Jews, the French, etc.?

***

How is the mind of people made up? By constant propaganda and repetition: 

Brain washing so thorough that people get completely stupid from it (celebritism, sports one watches on TV, addictively) is how oligarchies rule over the rabble; this is not new, it was fully described in writing as a method of rule, as early as Juvenal, 1,900 years ago… 

With media pounding the same lies always, a MOOD is finally created, and people know no other world, than this world of lies their superiors want them to believe in. Right now all the “Western” media is owned, or funded, by plutocrats. So the question is not, how good is your media? The question is: how good are the plutocrats feeding your mind? How good do they want to be to you, when they play with you?

One of my reader-collaborators, Eugen R, considering my position on issues related to the US president deeply flawed, sent me to an essay from Ms. Applebaum, a paid writer for Mr. Bezos (the world’s “richest man”) and The Atlantic (owned by David Bradley who interned in the White House during the presidency of Richard Nixon. He received a MBA from Harvard. He then sold a majority interest to the immensely wealthy widow of Steve Jobs who owns a foundation with a misleading name, the Emerson Collective; Emerson Collective worries about things like DACA, Obama’s hypocritical Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program).

***

Basic Fact About Nazism: France and Britain Fought It Alone For All Too Long, Betrayed by Their child, the USA:

What Ms. Applebaum does is that she presents as well-known facts material which is completely unproven, such as “Trump abuse of power”. She extends the method to all of history. She accuses the French to have collaborated with Hitler, as a most significant part of The Holocaust (she doesn’t say this explicitly, she just sets the mood for those who don’t know history well to draw this conclusion). The simple truth?

In September 1939, France and Britain declared war TO Hitler. France got knocked out for a number of partly accidental reasons… But not before inflicting grievous losses to the Nazis. Britain kept on fighting, and pursuing the bombing of Berlin, started by the French… which had a devastating effect on German morals.

On 1 September 1940, the famous American media correspondent and historian William Shirer (the US was, at that time, still a neutral country) wrote in his diary in Berlin: “The main effect of a week of constant British night bombings has been to spread great disillusionment among the people here and sow doubt in their minds. One said to me today: ‘I’ll never believe another thing they say. If they’ve lied about the raids in the rest of Germany as they have about the ones on Berlin, then it must have been pretty bad there.’”

The USA would stay neutral… And intended to stay neutral in 1942. However, on December 11, 1941, Hitler, who defeated in front of Moscow, that the Americans, with supreme machiavellianism, had stabbed him in the back, and that the war was lost, in his petulant rage, declared war on the US. 

Ms Applebaum presents as a well-known fact that Trump helped Putin. If you are supposed to be an intellectual, you are supposed to know the Moon exists, and Trump helped Putin. Both are self-obvious truths for those conditioned by our plutocratic media. Common sense says the opposite. How did Trump help Putin by secretly equipping the Ukrainian army with ultra deadly “Javelin” anti-tank missiles? Oh, but the “Democrat” propagandists and all these intellectuals never mention that MOST SIGNIFICANT fact, so their readers are unaware of it, and, a fortiori, of its importance and relevance: Russian soldiers were advancing in Ukraine thanks to their Russian tanks; if the tanks get destroyed, by the Javelin missiles sent by Trump, secretly, they can’t advance. By contrast, Obama sent to Ukraine only Meals Ready To Eat (MREs) 

Applebaum has the reputation to be an intellectual. She is an influencer of the intellectual class, giving an excuse to the employees of the plutocratic media to espouse her fiel. Applebaum and her ilk, uses exactly the same tactics as Lenin, Stalin, and then Hitler… Or, for that matter, Christianism and Augustus. Christianism brandished the cross, a torture, as the incarnation of love. Augustus brandished the Republic he had destroyed, claiming he had re-established it. 

What makes the anti-Trump mob tick is “American Power”. They claim, in a contradictory way, that he exerts it too much, and that he destroyed it.

How was American power established? 

In March 2016, eight months before the election of President Donald Trump, Applebaum wrote a Washington Post column asking, “Is this the end of the West as we know it?”, which argued that “we are two or three bad elections away from the end of NATO, the end of the European Union and maybe the end of the liberal world order”.[39] Applebaum endorsed Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president in July 2016 on the grounds that Trump is “a man who appears bent on destroying the alliances that preserve international peace and American power.“[40]”

So Ms Applebaum says it herself, it’s all about “POWER”, “AMERICAN POWER“… NOT JUSTICE, PROGRESS… We have to bleed for the “LIBERAL WORLD ORDER“… Understand: GLOBAL PLUTOCRACY. And the likes of Biden, avoiding to pay health care taxes by setting up an “S corporation”… For his income…

Well F the “liberal world order” and “American power”…

“American Power” means that when the French Republic falls to Nazi tanks, you do nothing, paving the road to Auschwitz. Kill the French, kill the Jews: that was the way of “American Power”… and the “liberal world order”…

Pétain Got To Power Because The USA Wanted To Destroy Europe In General And The Republic In Particular; France Sheltered In Place:

How many republics during 1939 in Europe? Just one, if one excludes irrelevant Switzerland, with its greed as morality and its rapacity (busy confiscating Jewish property and becoming part of the Nazi war economy: consider Nazi ball bearings, and anti-aircraft Nazi guns, Swiss made… until the US Air Force finally bomb them… “accidentally”…)

US politics was headed by president FDR, an hereditary plutocrat who hated France and dreamed to seize her colonies. 

Fast forward to 2020, Bezos’ prostitute dares to write, after calling those who don’t hate Trump, “collaborators”:

“By Pétain’s reckoning, collaboration with the Germans was not merely an embarrassing necessity. It was crucial, because it gave patriots the ability to fight the real enemy: the French parliamentarians, socialists, anarchists, Jews, and other assorted leftists and democrats who, he believed, were undermining the nation, robbing it of its vitality, destroying its essence. “Rather Hitler than Blum,” the saying went—Blum having been France’s socialist (and Jewish) prime minister in the late 1930s. One Vichy minister, Pierre Laval, famously declared that he hoped Germany would conquer all of Europe. Otherwise, he asserted, “Bolshevism would tomorrow establish itself everywhere.”

Repugnant. Applebaum is confusing what was told to the Nazis, and the real reality, which was the exact opposite. There is little doubt that Pétain was as deeply a republican patriot as they come (similarly, as a matter of principle he had to de condemned to death after he voluntarily submitted to arrest, coming out of Switzerland after the war).

Applebaum a Nazi friendly Jew, is completely masking what really happened: US AMERICAN BETRAYAL of the Republic, France, anti-racism, Judaism, morality and humanity. It is Roosevelt who recognized Pétain, and the Vichy regime. FDR sent his right arm, 4 star admiral Leahy, as “ambassador” to Vichy. Applebaum is a NAZI. She is a Nazi, because she thinks and feels, like a Nazi. 

France declared war to Hitler and was beaten when the combination of Stalin, Hitler, Roosevelt, Mussolini… Roosevelt? The Canadians tried to help in June 1940, they disembarked divisions in Brittany, which were beaten up by the Nazis. NOT the US. 

Pétain‘s delaying tactics spared France the maximum wrath of Hitler when it was at its worst. By flattering the mass homicidal dictator, presenting a shimmering alliance of sorts, Pétain neutered Hitler. After 1941, Germany had clearly become, paradoxically, crucially dependent upon the French economy, feeding and industrializing Nazi Germany. Sending all the French to ovens, even if the Nazis ate them all, would condemn Germany to starvation… Hitler was frustrated, but it was too late… The red zone above is the interdiction zone. South East France was directly occupied by the Nazis and the Gestapo after Mussolini’s fall.

To this day, how the holocaust happened is masked by whores like Applebaum. As, among other things, people died in my family, I am not amused. Pétain was NO friends of the Nazis, obviously. He hated German racist fascim. As the commanding general, he had fought with ultimate ferocity at the battle of Verdun, where half a million soldiers died… even using the famous decimation method of the Roman army. 

Pétain faked it enough to keep 40% of France sort of “free” for another two years, before the Nazis invaded this too. American idiots will shrug. Well, they don’t know about the thousands of “Jewish” children (and also pseudo-Jewish, but counted as such), who were seized by the Nazis, and tortured to death. How many Jewish children did  Pétain delaying tactics save? Thousands. Delaying, as Pétain’s administration did, at least kept much of France free from the direct administration by the GESTAPO, the horrendous service killing races deemed inferior. That’s all. Hitler had wanted to annihilate the French people, like he did the Jews. In the First World War, most combat age French males were killed or wounded.

What Pétain Wanted To Avoid: Another Holocaust Of the French Population For No Good Reason:

Around 1,400,000 French soldiers were killed in World War One, another attack against France rendered possible in its inception and devastation, by the US Deep State, and its mood to treat Europeans like Native Americans, with twisted alliances and betrayals, resulting in holocausts of the Native Europeans. This is an average of 893 dead French soldiers per day, for more than four years.

More than 4,300,000 French soldiers were wounded, which means an average of 2745 per day, for 1566 days, including :

1,100,000 disabled, 300,000 mutilated, 42,000 blinded, 15,000 broken faces

The deaths of soldiers created 700,000 widows and more than 1,000,000 orphans.

More than 100,000 indigenous soldiers from the  French colonies were killed, fighting for humanity, including 26,000 Algerians.

France was far from defeated by the end of June when the cease-fire with Nazi Germany was declared. The French fleet was much larger than the Nazi fleet… and the air force comparable. At this point the French Republic could have send its forces to North Africa… and the Nazis would have been unable to conquer that… as their difficulties in Crete with the British Royal Navy amply proved: the entire Nazi parachutist army was basically annihilated.

After the Nazi defeat in French hands at Bir Hakeim, Hitler repeated to his cabinet they had to annihilate France. But nobody else wanted it by then (June 1942)… as the other cabinet members pointed out, they depended upon French civilian industry… And Hitler to add that he knew this all too well, and that Germany would end up depending upon France.

So Pétain  and some of his collaborators, such as Mitterand, knew all of this, and mostly wanted to save a maximum number of French people (France’s population had stagnated at 40 millions for a generation, from combat losses). 

Dirty job, yes, but someone had to do it. I, of course detest Vichy, and also Mitterand (more than Pétain, because Pétain did what he had to do, stab Hitler in the back while killing him with love; Mitterand made a hash of his presidency)… my closest family was in the resistance, sheltered more than 100 Jews, and became a Gestapo target…

Meanwhile, fascists such as Applebaum hid what truly happened during the Twentieth Century:

AMERICAN PLUTOCRACY WORLD POWER GRAB.

Notoriously, the New York Times, owned by US Jews, collaborated with Hitler in World War Two, by hiding The Holocaust from its readers (although it knew about it very well).

If the French Republic, even fighting from North Africa, had not ceased fire, there would have been no holocaust.  

As simple as that.

But the US deep State wanted a Holocaust… because only thus would US plutocratic power rise and rule the world. The betrayal of the USA to Europe, the Poles, the French, the Dutch, the Belgians, the Danes, the Norwegians, the British, the Jews, Gypsies, the handicapped, the Slavs, the blacks (there were blacks in Germany… at best they got neutered…) was not a betrayal of We The People of the USA… which had been deliberately misinformed, as it is now. It was a betrayal of the leading part of US plutocracy… And that betraying mood is still in the lead today. But targets of the Resistance need to be more carefully selected, and the first one to select is gross ignorance about what exactly happened…

[1] Roosevelt craftily decided that the United States needed to help the Soviets fight against the Germans, so that war would be made by proxy, and Europe devastated some more, while the USSr became discreetly, de facto, part of the US empire, or a US agent. Soviet Ambassador Maxim Litvinov significantly contributed to the Lend-Lease agreement of 1941. American deliveries to the Soviet Union started early on:

“Pre Lend-lease” June 22, 1941, to September 30, 1941 (paid for in gold and other minerals).
First protocol period from October 1, 1941, to June 30, 1942 (signed October 7, 1941), these war supplies were to be manufactured and delivered by the UK with US credit financing.
