Game of Drones: Mossad, MI6 and the art of non-negotiation

Only honest actors like Iran, Russia and Hezbollah should negotiate on the one side and NATO, with its alphabet soup of intelligence agencies and their front media groups, should be got to negotiate, for their first time ever, in good faith.

This article's purpose of throwing light on recent "peace" overtures in Gaza and Ukraine necessitates a number of detours, the most pivotal of which is the negotiations British Field Marshal Montgomery engaged in on 4 May 1945 with the German High Command on Lüneburg Heath where he baldly dictated terms of unconditional surrender to them. In this deleted Downfall scene, the Soviets relay the same message regarding Berlin of Germany's total and unconditional surrender to Krebs.

Although kindergarten business books like Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal might think all negotiations are as uncomplicated as those facing the Germans in May 1945, that is not the case. Even there, Dönitz, who had succeeded Hitler as head of state, had tried to get some wriggle room by sending generals to "negotiate" with Montgomery rather than going in person. We see much the same process in Lawrence of Arabia where British puppet Prince Faisal plays the role of sovereign king at the time of Albion's Sykes-Picot doublecross.

Comment: Sides have been taken. Mindset is a closed circuit unable to create, unable to revise.

US military aid to Ukraine is 'grift' - Blackwater founder to Tucker Carlson

The equipment Washington sends to Kiev will never change the tide of battle, Eric Prince has said.

US weapons shipments to Ukraine are senseless since they are not capable of changing the course of the conflict, Eric Prince, the founder of private American military contractor Blackwater, told journalist Tucker Carlson in an interview published on Tuesday.

The military aid to Ukraine is nothing but a "massive grift paid by the Pentagon," Prince stated, adding that the latest major aid package worth $61 billion approved by Congress and signed by President Joe Biden in April will end up lining the coffers of US defense industry giants. Prince, himself a former Navy SEAL officer, resigned and divested from his company after the 2007 Iraqi massacre scandal.

The Blackwater founder said:
"Most of that money goes to five major defense contractors to replace at five times the cost the weapons that we have already sent the Ukrainians. It does not change the outcome of the battle.

"The Biden administration believed that all this American weaponry would have saved the day. It has not."

Comment: The US self serves by means of death and destruction, be it ally or foe. Population and war equipment eliminations are the prerequisites. NATO is the cover. Ukraine is the current excuse. Last country standing is the goal.

Federal judge blocks Biden ATF rule expanding gun background checks

A federal judge temporarily blocked the Biden administration from fully enforcing a gun background check rule Sunday night.

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the rule covering background checks for firearms purchases April 10, claiming it was based on bipartisan legislation passed in the wake of a deadly school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

United States District Judge Matthew J. Kacsmaryk of the Northern District of Texas issued a temporary restraining order blocking the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives from enforcing the rule against the state of Texas and certain gun organizations until June 2.

The rule would dramatically expand the definition of when someone is "engaged in business" as a gun dealer subject to background check regulations, thereby expanding the number of who must submit to background checks.

Gun Owners of America Senior Vice President Erich Pratt said:
"President [Joe] Biden and his anti-gun administration have aggressively pursued an agenda meant to harass, intimidate, and criminalize gun owners and dealers at every turn. This ruling is a compelling rebuke of their tyrannical and unconstitutional actions that purposely misinterpreted federal law to ensure their preferred policy outcome."
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and other Republican state attorneys general sued to block the rule May 1.

Comment: More than a third of the country joined this suit.

Best of the Web: Norway, Ireland and Spain Recognize Palestinian State - Israel livid

In late March, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said that Madrid had reached an agreement with Ireland, Slovenia and Malta to take the first steps toward recognizing the State of Palestine to promote the peace process.

Norway, Ireland and Spain have announced they are officially recognizing Palestinian statehood.
"The Norwegian Government has decided that Norway will recognise Palestine as a state. In the midst of a war, with tens of thousands killed and injured, we must keep alive the only alternative that offers a political solution for Israelis and Palestinians alike: Two states, living side by side, in peace and security," said Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre on Wednesday.
He added that the Palestinian people have a fundamental right to self-determination.
"Both Israelis and Palestinians have a right to live in peace in their respective states. There will be no peace in the Middle East without a two-state solution. There can be no two-state solution without a Palestinian state. In other words, a Palestinian state is a prerequisite for achieving peace in the Middle East," said the PM.
Ireland's taoiseach Simon Harris has also confirmed at a press conference that Ireland will recognise a Palestinian state, with a similar move announced by Spanish prime minister Pedro Sánchez.Palestinian movement Hamas has welcomed statements from Norway, Ireland and Spain on the recognition of Palestine as a state.


Comment: RT adds that Israel has recalled its ambassadors from all three countries:
The development comes more than 30 years after the first Oslo agreement was signed in 1993. Since then, "the Palestinians have taken important steps towards a two-state solution," the Norwegian government said.

It said that the World Bank determined that a Palestinian state had met key criteria to function as a state in 2011, that national institutions have been built up to provide the population with important services.

"The war in Gaza and the constant expansion of illegal settlements in the West Bank still mean that the situation in Palestine is more difficult than it has been in decades," the Norwegian government said.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez said that his country will recognize a Palestinian state also on May 28. Sánchez, Spain's Socialist leader since 2018, made the expected announcement to the nation's Parliament on Wednesday.

Sánchez has spent months touring European and Middle Eastern countries to garner support for the recognition of a Palestinian state, as well as a possible ceasefire in Gaza.




He has said several times that he was committed to the move.

Earlier this month, Spain's Foreign Minister José Albares said he had informed US Secretary of State Antony Blinken of his government's intention to recognize a Palestinian state.

The fast-moving developments drew Israel's condemnation. Israel's Foreign Minister Israel Katz ordered Israel's ambassadors from Ireland and Norway to immediately return to Israel, as Norway said it would recognize a Palestinian state and Ireland was expected to do the same.

"Ireland and Norway intend to send a message today to the Palestinians and the whole world: terrorism pays," Katz said.

He said that the recognition could impede efforts to return Israel's hostages being held in Gaza and makes a cease-fire less likely by "rewarding the jihadists of Hamas and Iran."

He also threatened to recall Israel's ambassador to Spain if the country takes a similar position.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas welcomed Norway's recognition of a Palestinian state and called on other countries to follow.

In a statement carried by the official Wafa news agency, he says Norway's decision, announced Wednesday, will enshrine "the Palestinian people's right to self-determination" and support efforts to bring about a two-state solution with Israel.
Ooh, Netanyahu is big mad now.

Project Veritas: White House aide admits Biden fears 'huge Jewish influence'

The US president won't risk angering the lobby in Washington, a security adviser told Project Veritas

US President Joe Biden is under pressure from the Democratic Party's progressive wing to more forcefully condemn Israel's actions in Gaza, but will not do so unless he wins a second term in office, a National Security Council official has told Project Veritas.

Biden's position on Israel is the result of careful "political calculations," National Security Council policy adviser Sterlin Waters told an undercover reporter for Project Veritas, a conservative outlet known for its hidden-camera sting operations.

On one hand, Biden and his top aides need to tell Israel that "you're not going to continue to lie, and bomb, and kill all these kids without facing serious consequences" to placate progressive voters, Waters explained in a video published by the outlet on Tuesday. However, If Biden did this, Waters continued, he would anger the "huge, powerful Jewish influence in Republican and Democrat politics" and face a smear campaign that would cost him this November's presidential election.

Russia begins 'non-strategic' nuclear weapons drills

Iskander
The Russian defence ministry's footage showed Iskander missile systems moving into position in a wooded area for the test launch
Earlier this month, the Ministry of Defense announced that the Russian General Staff, on behalf of President Vladimir Putin, had begun preparations to hold exercises with missile formations of the Southern Military District and Navy forces. Russia's Southern Military District has begun the first stage of an exercise involving practical training in the preparation and use of non-strategic nuclear weapons, the Defence Ministry said.

"In accordance with the instructions of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces of the Russian Federation, the first stage of the drills has begun in the Southern Military District under the leadership of the General Staff of the armed forces of the Russian Federation with practical testing of the preparation and use of non-strategic nuclear weapons," the statement said.

The drills with the non-strategic nuclear weapons train for receipt of special munitions and equipment of launch vehicles, the ministry added.

Comment: Western media has derided the drills as 'theatrical', and this flippant response perhaps further serves to confirm why Russia has been forced to make its position clear to the dangerously deluded, warmongering West.

A surprisingly balanced news report with footage of the drills:

Raisi led the charge for Russia - Iran - China's 'new world order'

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi's eastward vision was instrumental in advancing the strategic Moscow-Tehran-Beijing nexus and bulldozing a path toward institutionalizing multipolarity.

Amidst all the sadness and grief over the loss of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, let's take a moment to showcase the critical path he helped forge toward a new global order.

In the nearly three years since Raisi ascended to the Iranian presidency, Eurasian integration and the drive toward multipolarity have become fundamentally conducted by three major actors: Russia, China, and Iran.

Which, by no accident, are the three top "existential threats" to the hegemonic power.

At 10 pm this past Sunday in Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin invited Iran's ambassador to Moscow, Kazem Jalali, to be at the table in an impromptu meeting with the cream of the crop of Russia's Defense Team.

That invitation reached far beyond the myopic media conjecture over whether the Iranian president's untimely death was due to an "accidental crash" or an act of sabotage. It came from the fruits of Raisi's tireless labor to position Iran as an east-facing nation, boldly forging strategic alliances with Asia's major powers while sweetening Tehran's relations with past regional foes.

Zelensky's mandate expires - streets empty as men hide from Ukraine's new conscription law

zelensky
'President' Vladimir Zelensky has declared that martial law allows him to continue in office despite the end of his official term.
MSM questions the power of presidential aide Andy Yermak and power is out all over the country

And so we've come to the point of the war in Ukraine in which the west's 'Knight in Shining armor', the 'defender of democracy' Volodymyr Zelensky has outrun his Constitutional Presidential mandate, and is now in power only by virtue of the martial law he enacted.

That is just the most dramatic of the absolutely disheartening (for Kiev) series of developments.

To begin with, a series of videos have surfaced showing how the streets of Ukraine now are deserted, with men hiding from conscription into the army - and somehow, everyone else seemed to have stayed at home, too.

Julian Assange's five-year battle against extradition to the US continues as he WINS last-ditch legal battle to lodge appeal

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's five-year battle against extradition to the US for espionage charges continues after he won a last-ditch legal battle to appeal.

There were gasps of relief from the Australian's wife and other supporters in the High Court as Dame Victoria Sharp said she and Mr Justice Johnson had decided they were not satisfied with assurances given by US prosecutors.

The judges had last month dismissed most of Assange's legal arguments but said he would be able to bring an appeal on three grounds unless the US provided 'satisfactory assurances.'

These were that Assange would be protected by and allowed to rely on the First Amendment, that his trial would not be prejudiced by his nationality and that the death penalty would not be imposed.

Dame Victoria told the court they were not satisfied Assange was guaranteed protection under the First Amendment.

Flashback How Soros's network exerts full influence on Slovak politics

goerge soros
© MTI/EPA pool/Olivier HosletGeorge Soros,a Hungarian-born American businessman and founder of the New York-based Soros Fund Management investment company, arrives in Brussels, 27 April 2017.
Through his confidants in key positions, the American stock exchange speculator keeps control over the (pseudo) civil society sector and the media.

George Soros established his foundation (Open Society Foundations Bratislava - OSFB) in the future capital of Slovakia as early as 1992. During the period since then
"through his unlimited financial resources and confidants in key positions, the American stock exchange speculator has has gained influence over the political life, the (pseudo) civil society sector and the media in Slovakia,"
The investigative platform Tuzfalcsoport highlights. Their latest analysis points out that one just has to think of Zuzana Caputova, Slovakia's current head of state, who is rather well-connected with George Soros; the funding amounting to nearly 6.2 million US dollars Slovak (or locally relevant) organizations received between 2016 and 2021; or the acquisition of a stake in Slovakia's second largest publishing company by the Media Development Investment Fund, supported by tens of millions of dollars by OSF.

Comment: Slovakia is not the only country garnering Soros' attention. It encompasses the whole world, starting with Europe, then Russia and the West. In his principle organization's own words:
