Meanwhile, in Occupied Palestine, Netanyahu wonders how to cash in on the chaos to come.

This symbolic act, indicating American subservience to Israel, took place two weeks ago. The President of America was telling his Israeli counterpart, Benjamin Netanyahu, in so many words: ‘The White House now belongs to you.” See the stomach-churning video at the end of this article.
These are my thoughts this sunny Sunday morning on the future that faces us in the dystopian world we see around us as the storms clouds darken. I offer my apologies in advance to the people I am about to offend by expressing my random reflections here. No offence is meant, so please bear with me.
As of today, the 74-year-old President is 9-10 points behind his Democratic rival Joe Biden. This is particularly galling for him. His promises of making America great again appear to be in shreds and tatters. The economy is in ruins. Most American voters are in a bad mood after several months of Covid-19 lockdown stress and blame Trump for all their woes. Adding insult to injury, the same president who has managed to antagonise large segments of the American population in his first term, has recently boasted that he not only plans to have a second term but—surprise, surprise!—a third term after that. He told a crowd in Nevada recently that he was “entitled” to a third term, even though this is currently banned under the US Constitution.
This does not trouble Trump’s most fanatical followers in the least. Legality is something they scorn, just as Hitler’s Stormtroopers in the early 1930s didn’t give a monkey’s curse for law and order. All they wanted was a bit of action. If blood was to be spilled, bring it on!
This is the mood in America right now among the White militias who back Trump to the hilt, consisting of 40,000 to 100,000 paramilitary groups armed to the teeth and awaiting Trump’s orders. Some are known as “preppers”, continually readying themselves for a catastrophic breakdown in society. Others are known as “Three Percenters” for historical reasons I won’t explain. They all have one thing in common: itchy trigger fingers. In the words of one political analyst: “They have stayed largely out of sight for years but now clearly sense their moment has come.”
It needs to be pointed out that these militias are perfectly legal in 45 “open carry” states. Brandishing rifles and playing at Hopalong Cassidy is not against the law, but in the words of the same analyst quoted above: “militia members will often be staying within the law until the moment they actually pull the trigger.”
I am in contact with people who back these militias and belong to them. I like them. They are the salt of the earth — brave patriots to a man, ready to spill enemy blood for love of their country, and their women touch my heart too. They are doing their best right now to exercise maximum restraint, but all they need is a single word from Trump.
Trump last week made much of video footage showing black demonstrators descending on an elderly white couple dining outside a restaurant to shouts of “FUCK THE WHITE PEOPLE!” No White militia men intervened on that occasion. No triggers were pulled. Restraint was exercised. But how much longer do you provoke the tiger and keep pulling its tail before the beast turns and tears you to pieces?
Remember the sardonic French adage, my friends: “Cet animal est très méchant. Quand on l’attaque, il se défend.” — Elegantly translated: “This beast can be pretty vicious. When you attack it, it actually defends itself.”

According to a recent report in the Financial Times, it seems that White American seniors in particular, a group that helped propel Trump to victory in 2016, have become thoroughly disillusioned with Trump after his less than spectacular performance in handling the Covid-19 pandemic. Muslim support is almost zero, and justifiably so, in view of Trump’s ultra-Zionist backing for Israel in its ongoing human rights violations in Occupied Palestine.
If Trump loses, we have reason to believe that his devoted followers can be relied upon to question the validity of the elections, taking to the streets in violent marches in the manner made familiar to us by Hitler’s Brown Shirts. And undoubtedly the famous old quote by Stalin will suddenly be resurrected and take on a new life: “It’s not the people who vote that count. It’s the people who count the votes.”
Trump has himself hinted that a peaceful transition of power from the Republicans to the Democrats is unlikely to happen. He has already suggested that he won’t accept the results of the 2020 elections if he loses. The latest news is that recently discovered postal votes, at least six out of nine for Trump, were found in a garbage bin in Pennsylvania. This has allowed Trump to throw a hissy fit and claim a rigged election in advance. “These ballots are a horror show!” he fumed, adding on Twitter: “Democrats are rigging our 2020 elections!”
The White militias loathe the Democrats. They hold Biden in execration and would like to see him dead. Here is Dylan Stevens (pictured), a blonde-bearded giant who calls himself “Angry Viking”. He describes himself as “a staunch supporter of Trump, police, our troops, Second Amendment, America and the flag.”
“He and his comrades loudly insist they are not racist but do believe they need to arm themselves against an oppressive government that may soon try to enforce socialism on them. They are, of course, talking about a Democrat government headed by Trump’s opponent, Joe Biden.”
So this is the situation. One word from Trump will do the trick. Trump is biding his time. The moment is not yet ripe and “ripeness is all”.

Let’s leave aside for a moment the tiresome subject of vote-rigging and the equally tiresome subject of the President’s abysmal incompetence in handling the Covid-19 crisis. Let’s also leave aside the broken promises and the failure to build the wall across the southern border “to keep out the hordes of the Third World”.
Instead, let’s turn to a more compelling subject: foreign policy.
If war broke out, would American military might prevail? Would the Russians and the Chinese be turned into mincemeat? Would Iran be wiped off the map? Would America straddle the world, as Great Britain once did, and would the wealth of conquered nations flow into Wall Street coffers and the bloated bank accounts of the Jewish financiers and their elite goyim camp followers?
Possibly. But I doubt it. America is no longer cock of the dungheap. Russia has deadly weapons. China, if pushed too far, could give America a bloody nose. America cannot afford to start a major war and lose. Remember Hitler’s invidious fate. Suicide in a bunker. Is the sleek and pinguid Trump ready to die for his”principles”?
No, I don’t think so.
Solitary confinement in an underground dungeon, awaiting summary execution for treason, could cost our dear leader his gorgeous tan.
And what meanwhile happens to Israel, “the only democracy in the Middle East”?
These are speculative questions I am unable to answer. But they need to be asked. Let the intelligent reader decide what will happen to America if Trump starts another war.
I shudder to think of the consequences.

Let’s direct our attention now to the situation in Israel/Palestine. This is a topic of such overriding importance that we must not allow our attention to be distracted from it by the American elections and the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.
Trump recently hailed “the dawn of a new Middle East” after prevailing upon the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to sign agreements to normalise ties with Israel. These were the first Arab states in the last twenty-five years to cuddle up to Israel, and, in effect, to turn a blind eye to Israel’s shocking human rights record in regard to the land theft and plunder of Palestine. The first stab in the back of Palestine came from Egypt in 1979. The second stab in the back came from Jordan in 1994. There are right now four Arab nations that have jumped into bed with Israel: Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain. These can be relied upon henceforth to connive and coo like sucking doves the next time Israel decides to unleash its terror weapons on the crippled women and children of Gaza.
Well done, Donald!—you have managed to rope in two more Arab nations into becoming Israeli bootlickers.
Trump has threatened to extend this process of treachery to “at least five or six countries” in the region, with Saudi Arabia and Oman being the next targets on his hit list.
Are the Palestinians happy with this situation? Of course not. They are livid. They have denounced this so-called “normalisation” as yet another treacherous stab in the back. How can it be “normal” to turn a blind eye to Israel’s future atrocities in the region? To use the word “normal” as a substitute for “abnormal” is Orwellian doublespeak of the most flagrant kind.
In the words of Philip Giraldi:
The Palestinians, who have been on the receiving end of Israeli nation-building, were not invited [to the signing ceremony deciding their fate].
There were some demonstrations by Palestinians in Gaza and Ramallah denouncing the signing as it took place, together with chanting that “PALESTINE IS NOT FOR SALE.”
Indeed, Palestinians are more-or-less invisible in Washington, having had their representational office closed by Trump in 2018 after he had been shown a fabricated video by Netanyahu in which Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas appeared to be calling for the murder of children.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also viewed the video and informed the president that it was an obvious fabrication, but Trump was convinced by it.
So that’s the way it is with our Trumpenstein. He is all too ready to believe in fake videos cooked up by Israel with Bibi’s full blessings. Israel has now been given the green light to misbehave in the region — with Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain all pretending hypocritically not to notice. And Saudi Arabia, Oman and other Arab states are being dragooned into similar attitudes of sycophancy to Israel.
The Israeli fox, with Trump’s nod of approval, has been given free leave to enter the Arab henhouse and create havoc whenever it chooses.
One nation alone refuses to give in to American and Israeli blandishments: Iran.
Iran stands firm and incorruptible. Which is why Trump and Netanyahu have ganged up against Iran and are trying their best to find pretexts to destroy it. For his efforts in securing these new Arab allies for Israel, we learn that Trump is now preening himself for the Nobel Peace prize.
Here is Philip Giraldi explaining:
The U.S. media, always inclined to applaud anything that advances Israeli interests, registered its approval of the [new] agreement. And there were calls for awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to Trump for his miraculous achievement.
Trump the “peacemaker” has a nice ring to it.
The downside of the agreement is already beginning to play out as the United States is preparing to unilaterally impose sanctions on Iran that will include possible seizure of Iranian ships in international waters, while Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has also warned Russia and China against trying to sell weapons to Tehran.
One might well ask, how exactly does Pompeo propose to do that?
Will he shoot down Russian transport planes or sink Chinese and Russian flagged ships?
How does one go from being crazy to being batshit crazy?
Trita Parsi, who follows the situation in the Middle East closely, has suggested that Pompeo might even be planning an October Surprise, which might amount to some kind of provocation or even a false flag operation. Such a suggestion might be considered insanity. But there is now a distinct possibility that an Iranian vessel in the Persian Gulf might be seized, forcing Iran to respond.
The thinking in the White House might be that a containable war against a recognized enemy might be just the ticket to win in November.
Of course, once the fighting starts it might not work out that way.

One final word on Netanyahu. Make of this bizarre news story what you will. It comes from yesterday’s Daily Mail.
ISRAEL PM GETS U.S. TO DO HIS LAUNDRY
Washing your dirty laundry in public isn’t a good look for a politician.
But Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is said to have a habit of bringing bags full of unclean clothes on his diplomatic visits to the US.
American officials are purportedly perplexed by the habit when he turns up at the White House. According to insiders, Mr Netanyahu arrives in Washington with “special cargo: bags and suitcases full of clothes to be laundered”.
The Donald Trump ally is said to have begun bringing his laundry during the Barack Obama administration.
The reports match years of similar stories by Israeli journalists, Tel Aviv newspaper Haaretz said.
“The Netanyahus are the only ones who bring actual suitcases of dirty laundry for us to clean,” an insider told The Washington Post. “After multiple trips, it became clear this was intentional.”

The nauseatingly close relationship between Trump and Netanyahu has been noted by the Palestinians. This satirical wall mural in the West Bank sums up their bitter feelings for Trump, the man who has betrayed Palestine for Jewish money and support.
Watch this disturbing 3-minute video below and then ask yourself the million dollar question: Who rules America? And then ask yourself the follow-up question: Are they fit to rule?
