Trump and Netanyahu Made A Complete Fool of Themselves in Front of World Leaders

by David MacIlwain, American Herold Tribune

Donald Trump’s speech to the UN General Assembly of September 19th 2017 will surely go down in history as marking the final collapse of a terminally corrupt regime, where any pretence of cooperative co-existence with the world has given way to the logic of the battlefield.

And while it is too soon to decide if the Western World will follow America into this dark space, the early signs are not good. Some US allies have already given their support to Trump’s psychopathic threat to “totally destroy North Korea”, simply by supporting the corollaries to this threat and by failing to condemn it.

But this is only to be expected, particularly from countries already up to the neck in America’s crimes around the world, like the UK and Australia.

Can You Imagine Life Like This? A Glimpse into Palestinian Life in Gaza Strip

Netanyahu Tells European Leaders Concern for Palestinian Rights Is “Crazy”

from the Intercept

The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, was caught on tape on Wednesday urging four European leaders to help him undermine a provision of a European Union trade agreement that imposes an obligation on Israel to respect the rights of the millions of Palestinians it rules in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

In private remarks to the leaders of Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia that were accidentally broadcast to members of the Israeli media outside the room, Netanyahu was overheard calling it “crazy” for the E.U. to insist that Israel honor Article 2 of an association agreement signed in 1995 which makes trade with the bloc conditional on Israel’s “respect for human rights and democratic principles.”..

In recent years, Israel has destroyed hundreds of European-financed structures — including schools, playgrounds and solar panels — built to help Palestinians in the occupied territories.

Netanyahu and his ultranationalist supporters have harshly criticized European governments for providing financial support to Israeli rights groups, including Breaking the Silence and B’Tselem, which work to expose abuses by Israel’s military in the occupied territories…

Scary (not really): Hillary Clinton’s “Nanna Nanna Boo Boo” Speech Demonizes Folks for “Thinking Outside the Norm”

by Scott Creighton

Well OK then.

Hillary Clinton’s team has apparently decided to counter all the horrible news that came out about her this past week regarding her “pay to play” policy at the State Department by pointing a finger at Donald Trump and proclaiming “nanna nanna boo boo, you’re racist doo doo”

That’s literally all they have. That’s it. That’s what they got. “Don’t pay attention to our Republican-leaning neocon-backed warmongering “Democratic Party” candidate’s VAST record of MAJOR criminal activity because… Trump knows some racists”

That’s it. That’s the campaign strategy, apparently scripted by the dim-witted middle school kids running her campaign.

This is nothing new, really. Whenever another Clinton family crime is rudely mentioned during this campaign, suddenly The Donald magically becomes even more racist than he was the day before and it’s always by some form of 6 degrees of separation:

“The Donald is supported by David Duke… ergo The Donald wants to shank all black people”

“There was a 6-pointed star on a Tweet The Donald reTweeted… ergo The Donald cooks Jews in his oven in Trump Tower”

The newest version of this trend was rolled out yesterday in the wake of all those revelations by the AP about Hillary Clinton setting up meets with donors to the Clinton Globalist Slush Fund Foundation and it deals with what they are now calling the “alt right” which apparently translates to “black, Latino and Jewish baby raping monsters”

On a side note, the only racist “baby raping monsters” I know of that have anything to do with this “election” were hired by Hillary Clinton to destabilize Libya and Syria by killing people of other faiths and… well… and raping babies. Talk about 6 degrees of separation. That’s like one degree. Or half a degree. At best it’s two degrees as our freedom fighters below seem to suggest.

That said, the “alt right” attack spewing from the Clintonistas today like Mika Brzezinski on Morning Joe, is quite stunning in it’s audacity.

Bernie Sanders Gives Tepid/Measured Speech on Israeli/Palestinian Conflict (video and partial transcript)

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: For comparison purposes, you can read the transcript of Donald Trump’s war-mongering, sycophantic pandering speech to AIPAC, here.

Bernie Sanders politely declined an invitation to speak at this year’s AIPAC convention in D.C. yesterday. The other presidential candidates went there and pandered to the Likudnik Lobby as if their professional lives depended on it, slandering everyone from Iran to Palestinian children “being taught to hate” the Jewish state for no other reason than… Muslims.

Bernie gave a lengthy stump speech in Utah then he gave a little press conference type address in which he delivered what he claims would have been his AIPAC speech. It is notable for a number of reasons but the most obvious is… he chose not to give it to the AIPAC crowd… which probably would have booed him off the stage if he gave it there or physically dragged him off the stage, exposing AIPAC and it’s rabid followers for what it and they really are.

So, was his decision to give this speech half a country away a decision he made in his best interests or in theirs? Hard too say. My guess is “both”

I have copied part of the transcript of his speech from his website and posted the full video below my comments.
