THE KOREAN TWO STATE SOLUTION - HOW IS THAT WORKING OUT FOR YOU? - Some inconvenient truths by author Jack Engelhardt

While the world was so busy condemning Israel, nuclear North Korea happened

By Jack EngelhardAuthor of the international bestsellers such as  “Indecent Proposal”.  He is the recipient of the Ben Hecht Award for Literary Excellence. 

Between North Korea and South Korea, that IS a two-state solution, and how is that working out?    Trump’s predecessors and the UN did not do much to stop North Korea. They were busy condemning Israel as the danger to world peace.  All along the real hotspot was in and around North Korea…or the 38th Parallel. But the world chose Israel as its focus because that’s where the Jews live. 

No Jews in North Korea, figured the nations, so let Kim Jong-un play with his toys; those nuclear-tipped missiles. We’ll worry about it another day.   But for Israel, it’s every day, or nearly so, that the UN finds some reason to condemn and obsesses over…and the price could be deadly.

That’s our champion at the UN, Nikki Haley, who says so, and she has warned that the obsession against Israel distracts from the real dangers coming from Hezbollah, Iran – and North Korea. Attention must be paid to tinhorn tyrants and madmen like Kim.    A day of reckoning is sure to arrive – and so it has. 

Israel is that tiny country in red.  Those in green are all Muslim nations, forced to convert after Arab invasions and occupation starting in the 7th century. And now the world wants to partition Israel, which has been Jewish for thousands of years, to create yet another Muslim Arab terror state. (Blogger) 

The Arab-Israel conflict has always been a sideshow. It got placed center stage because the Israelis were always willing to talk, concede and make deals for the sake of peace (though it never seems to be enough). No talks, no concessions, no deals, no peace from North Korea. 

We woke up one morning, just a few days ago in fact, to find that North Korea poses a real and present danger. Kim wants war. 

Talk about obsessive…

The NY Times takes pleasure at featuring Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a “parasitic thug,” yes, another day at “the paper of record.”    Or more “news” like that “fit to print.”   Kim is the nightmare. But don’t tell the Times.

France's ex president Hollande loves arch terrorist
 Mahmoud Abbas, chief of the Palestinian Authority

Plus twice a year, France invites the leaders of the world to join in a summit to solve what it perceives to be the world’s greatest crisis.

North Korea? No. Israel. That’s where everybody has an answer…and a peace process…and a two-state solution.

Between North Korea and South Korea, that IS a two-state solution, and how is that working out?

Lately not so good. Kim wants to play. He is ready to use his toys against the United States. He has already pinpointed Guam. He threatens to bomb it days from now.     President Trump does not like the game but GAME ON if that’s the deal.

Was Trump correct to go rhetorically “fire and fury” against Kim? Absolutely. “In a place where there are no men, be a man,” goes the wisdom.   Trump chooses to be a man. 

As did Israel back on June 7, 1981, when the IDF said hello Saddam Hussein, goodbye Iraq’s nuclear facilities at Osirak.  (Israel bombed Iraq's incipient nuclear reactor, to the outrage of the USA and the rest of the world. Blogger.)

The entire world hollered at the Jewish State for taking such preemptive action, but later thanked Israel for stopping yet another rogue regime from developing nukes.   
Chutzpah like that would have been useful at some point against Kim and the nuts that preceded him.

Trump’s predecessors did not do much (certainly not enough) to stop North Korea. Therefore Trump is left with few choices. 
So he spoke his mind. He did not mince words when he warned Kim that Kim’s next move could be his last.

Leftists here in the US, and from around the world have been quick to censure and even ridicule Trump for speaking up with such boldness. 

They are the same people who are always wrong about everything.

HOW FASCISM WAS REDEFINED AS RIGHT WING after the war, although it was originally socialist and left wing

  • The word NAZI has powerful emotional connotations.  We associate it with the worst in human nature. The political left routinely uses the word "Nazi" to silence opponents to their agenda. 
  • But history shows how the left has used Nazi methods of governance and control of the population throughout history (such as in Communist Germany, the Soviet Union, Cuba, North Korea, China, and more).  Those methods have included genocide on a grand scale. 
  • The left's violent attacks on Trump supporters, and their repeated efforts to silence those who stand for free speech, are chillingly reminiscent of Hitler's Brown Shirts.  The following article debunks the notion that Nazis and Fascists were right wing.  
Big Liar  -  How Theodor Adorno
 redefined Fascism
By Dinesh D'Souza, author of 
The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left

Fascism and Nazism are both phenomena of the left. This makes ideological sense, because at their core they represent ideologies of the centralized, all-powerful state.   
Moreover, fascism grew out of Marxism, and fascism’s founder Benito Mussolini, was a Marxist and lifelong socialist.
Hitler, too, was a socialist who headed the National Socialist Party and in fact changed the name of the German Workers Party to make it the National Socialist German Workers Party.
How, then, did progressives in America re-define fascism and Nazism as phenomena of the right? This sleight-of-hand occurred after World War II, once fascism and Nazism were discredited with the reputation of Holocaust. Then progressives recognized it was important to cover up the leftist roots of fascism and Nazism and to move them from the left-wing column into the right-wing column.
The man most responsible for the progressive redefinition of fascism is Theodor Adorno, a German Marxist intellectual and a member of the influential Institute for Social Research, otherwise known as the Frankfurt School.
The Frankfurt School scholars were leftists and most of them were refugees from Nazi Germany.  Some settled in Europe; others like Adorno and Herbert Marcuse came to the United States.

SHAMEFUL DISPLAY OF VIOLENCE IN CHARLOTTESVILLE while police were ordered to stand down

Yesterday at Charlottesville, USA:
A counter demonstrator uses a lighted spray can against a white nationalist demonstrator at the entrance to Lee Park
The media and politicians demand that Trump denounce ultra-rightists exclusively.  But leftist and black supremacist aggression has been the norm until now, and gone on without criticism.  The president was correct in condemning violence from all sides.    
Images show the two opposing sides of the crowd throwing bottles and becoming increasingly violent
This is war.  Police and media tolerance for leftist violence has led to this. 
 City officials declared a local emergency shortly after 11am. Brawls broke out as people in militia gear tackled others to the ground and began throwing punches
A moment when the ultra-right demonstrators appear to be just defending themselves.
This time the extreme right hopes to have a stronger showing thanks to the presence of various leaders of the 'alt-right' movement that has been emboldened by Donald Trump's ascent to the White House
Homage to Hitler's torch parades the night before the rally.  Neo-Nazis are coming out of the closet in a country that seems ripe for civil war.

The media does not want BLM and the left to be blamed for violence in America - only the moderate and the extreme right wing.   In the meantime BLM have burned entire neighborhoods in many American cities.

In Berkeley, as in many other college campuses and venues, the left resorts to violence to silence those they disagree with.
No one I know would defend what white supremacists in Charlottesville stand for, but as American citizens they have the right to protest peacefully, and that's what they seemed to be doing all along (with a proper city permit), until leftists thugs showed up in what they called a counter-demonstration, and then all hell broke loose.   
Leftists thugs are used to assault the more gentle Trump supporters and get away with it.  This time leftists were met with extreme right protestors who had come prepared to defend themselves with shields, home-made pepper spray, and even legal guns.  And when assaulted, they returned punch with punch.   
Leftist violence has become the norm.  Trump supporters have been routinely attacked at every rally, and left bleeding while police stand by.  Leftist authorities at all levels appear to have given leftists a pass to intimidate and assault those who uphold a different ideology.
VIDEO - Stefan Molyneux interviews Faith Goldy, a Rebel Media reporter who was only inches away when a car rammed into a crowd of demonstrators at Charlottesville.  She tells all about the violent rally, and how the excesses of BLM and the left will unleash the rise of the extreme right: 
Videos by Faith Goldy:
Virginia Governor McAuliffe in Charlottesville ‘No Place in America’ for Alt-Right, Refuses to Condemn leftist AntiFa -  While he strongly denounced the alt-right, he repeatedly refused to condemn leftist violence.

As Hitler was wiping out millions of Jews, he was preparing the creation of a museum of Jewish culture to showcase an "extinct race".
Decades later Spain, Portugal, Poland, and other countries have been re-enacting Jewish cultural performances for tourists using non-Jewish actors, because their Jews were all murdered or driven into exile. 
Their motivation is to attract tourist money.  Tourism in Europe has suffered due to the increased crime and terror by migrant populations from Africa and the Middle east.
The following article attempts to indicate that Poland's fake Jewish performances come from nostalgia for the now almost extinct European Jews.  However, given the country's history of violent anti-Semitism, this is hard to believe. 
Poland and the rest of Europe benefited economically from the theft of Jewish property and the murder of millions of Jews.  When Holocaust survivors attempted to return to their homes in Poland they were met with threats and actual violence.  Poles did not hesitate to kill them in order to keep stolen property.  The attacks ranged from individual murders to all out pogroms.  To this day the government of Poland has resisted the return of Jewish property to their rightful owners and heirs.
Europe is still obsessed with the Jews.  Unable to destroy the Jews of Israel, they have contracted out the Arabs to do the dirty work.  That is why they support the Palestinian cause of driving Jews out of their ancient land of Israel under the subterfuge of "peace".  
Europe, particularly Germany, France, the UK, and Scandinavian countries, have for decades funded Arab terror in Israel, with their generous donations disguised as 'humanitarian aid'.  In fact, that money sustains not only actual terror against Jews but a Nazi-style campaign of Palestinian genocidal propaganda against Israel and the Jews.  The Palestinian Authority has spent millions over the years paying salaries to terrorists and their families - all with European and American tax payers' money.
One minute VIDEO
Why does Europe continue to fund anti-Jewish terrorism and those who encourage it?
Strangely, there is an element of poetic justice in the current European situation.  As indigenous European populations have ceased to reproduce in sustaining numbers and are shrinking rapidly, they are now being replaced by migrants from Africa and the Middle East.  Europe tried to destroy the Jews, only to begin its own demographic and cultural suicide in just a couple of generations. 
Europe murdered the talented and patriotic Jews, and it's now replacing them with underachieving and hateful migrant populations that will never embrace European culture, and who are ideologically motivated to destroy it in order to impose their own.   
So as you read the following wishful-thinking article by the Jerusalem Post (Jews want so desperately to be loved and appreciated) keep in mind that the European motivation in re-enacting Jewish cultural performances is less than pure.  It's all about attracting tourist money.
Polish Village holds Jewish Wedding without Jews
  Jewish Poland
The Jerusalem Post - To Jonny Daniels, founder of From the Depths, which promotes Holocaust commemoration in Poland, events like the one in Radzanów are “some kind of therapy taking place all over the country.” 
Nostalgia for Jews is a well-documented phenomenon in Eastern Europe, with cultural and even substantial commercial aspects.

In Ukraine, so-called Jewish-themed restaurants with pork-heavy menus compete for tourists, while figurines of Jews are sold at markets as good luck charms. In Poland, graffiti reading “I miss you, Jew” have become a common sight.

ANIMAL ABUSERS SHOULD FACE TOUGHER PENALTIES says study - Most criminals convicted of violent offenses against people have a history of animal abuse

  • The following article focuses on Britain, but it applies everywhere in the world. 
  • Britain has now a growing Muslim population, which has led to a spike in animal abuse.  The Koran itself determines that dogs are impure, and Muslim culture condones the abuse of dogs and other animals.  Halal butchering in itself is extremely cruel.
  • But sadistic treatment of animals is perpetrated by people of all races and religions.
  • This generation may be even more cruel, as kids' minds have been rewired by violent video games and videos of actual torture on the internet.
  • When the law treats cases of animal abuse leniently, it is ignoring the fact that most criminals convicted of murder, torture and rape have a history of animal abuse.  
THUGS who torture animals should face tougher penalties as many turn into rapists and killers, a new study reveals today.

By , UK Express
Britain should have a animal cruelty register similar to the sex offenders register so repeat offenders can be monitored, says a crime prevention think-tank.   Fresh research highlights the link between horrific animal abuse and violent crimes against humans - especially women and children.   A study by the Centre for Crime Prevention reveals more than 92 per cent of people found guilty of crimes against animals avoid prison.

Detroit, MI – Nikita Smith filed a lawsuit against the Detroit Police Department after they killed her three dogs during a raid of her home in search of pot last year. On Wednesday, a judge absurdly ruled the dogs were considered “contraband,” noting that Smith had no legal basis to sue the police department for shooting and killing her dogs, due to the canines not having been properly licensed.
Subsequently, the federal civil rights lawsuit filed by Smith after a raid of her home by the Detroit police was dismissed by U.S. District Court Judge George Caram Steeh.
The search warrant for Smith’s residence came after police received a tip that marijuana was being sold out of the home. The raid, which killed her three dogs, netted a total of 25 grams of marijuana – not even an ounce.

Dry Bones cartoon,Israel, Medicine, terror, PLO, Erekat, Intifada, Palestinians, Arab,
Chief PLO negotiator Saeb Erekat, 62, suffers from pulmonary fibrosis, which is characterized by the development of scars in lung tissue which makes it difficult for them to function properly.  So far Erekat has been treated with drugs, but a few months ago drugs stopped being effective and his condition worsened dramatically.  Erekat began medical treatment in one of Israel's hospitals in the center of the country, but doctors made it clear to him that he had to undergo a lung transplant in order to survive. Since then, he has been on the waiting list. Erekat's Israeli doctors are optimistic about his chances of recovery if he undergoes a transplant.

Shmuel-David in the hospitalIn the meantime Palestinian stone throwers attacked a civilian bus full of children, sending at least one, a ten year old, to hospital with head injuries.    This is the daily reality of terror caused by a heavy indoctrination of genocidal hate by Palestinian educational institutions, clerical and political authorities, and media. 

The Israeli government has a policy of going easy on Arab firebombers and stone throwers out of fear of more Arab violence.  This policy of appeasement has never worked.  Arab culture respects only force.

Israel slanderer waits for Israeli lung transplant
'Those who choose to boycott the State of Israel should show some self-respect and boycott all the services of the State of Israel.'

Saeb ErekatAn application had been filed on behalf of Saeb Erekat, a senior PA official, for a lung transplant in Israel.
Saeb Erekat (right)  has waged a relentless war of vicious hate, slander, and an organized call for the boycott of Israel.  Today he waits for a Jewish lung to save his life.   The lung he will receive may very well belong to one of the soldiers he slandered in the past.
In the wake of Operation Defensive Shield in 2002, and the reserve soldiers battle in Jenin in which 13 IDF soldiers were killed, a false propaganda film by director Muhammad Bakri, entitled Jenin Jenin, was released. The film purports to provide prima facie evidence of war crimes committed by the IDF in Jenin which turned out to be wholly spurious, as was decided by the Central District Court.
Erekat took a large part in disseminating the blood libel embodied in the film, which portrayed the story as if a massacre took place in Jenin when noting of the sort occurred.

#FireMcMaster demands Trump's base - General McMaster is seen as a Deep State Globalist who Obstructs Trump's Agenda and Fires pro-Trump staff

  • Even if you hate Donald Trump, you should be profoundly disturbed at the way the Deep State is subverting the democratic process by obstructing and undermining the Trump's presidency. 
  • From the Democrat-Republican tacit alliance to scuttle Trump's agenda, to the leaks, to the Mueller investigation that uses alleged Russian interference in US elections as a ruse to oust Trump out of office, it is all an ongoing slow-motion coup d'état against the president.  
  • The jackals are circling ever closer to Trump, and some of them are ensconced within his inner circle in the White House itself.    
  • This situation is alarming, no matter what political party you support.  If it happens to Trump, it can happen to future presidents of either party.
  • The real threat to American democracy does not come from Russia but from the depths of the Washington Swamp. 
General McMaster, head of the National Security Council, is purging the NSC from staff who support Trump's agenda, while keeping Obama holdovers.  

The Trump's base is on an all out war against General McMaster after he fired several key pro-Trump people from his staff.   This general is known to be essentially a Deep State infiltrator in Trump's White House.  His immediate aim is to obstruct Trump's agenda.  His long-term goal is unstated.  

One other element corroding Trump's agenda is the influence of his daughter Ivanka and her husband, both of them life-long Democrat supporters.  Their advice runs contrary to Trump's philosophy and goals. 

However, the ultimate culprit in the possible downfall of the Trump presidency will turn out to be Trump himself, who so far has been too weak to assert himself and keep his enemies out of the White House.  He has hired people who he knows will undermine his administration, and allowed them in turn to keep Obama holdovers, fire Trump supporters, and hire more anti-Trump staffers.  This is a self-defeating, even suicidal formula.
McMaster’s MSM Allies Panic: Claim Breitbart’s Jewish Jerusalem Editor Is Anti-Jew

Here is a summary of key issues where Trump has already surrendered to the Deep State:  Signing sanctions against Russia, approval of the flawed and dangerous Iran deal, hiring and supporting McMaster, empowering Kelly to control flow of information and access to Oval Office, and allowing AG Sessions to avoid issues that could hurt the Democrats, such as Obama, Clinton, Lynn, and Wasserman.  

When Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation, he opened the gates for attack that will end Trump's tenure.  Mueller is now the Deep State tool for destroying the Trump presidency. 

The general picture now is one of a besieged and fearful president, barely hanging on to power, immersing himself in a delusional 2020 campaign mode with political rallies, while his White House sinks ever deeper into the swamp.    
General McMaster has disturbing ties to foreign governments and globalist puppet master, billionaire George Soros. 
National Security Advisor Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster’s past affiliation with the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) has created fresh concerns after research revealed that the British think tank has taken funding from multiple governments in the Middle East and organizations tied to George Soros. McMaster’s former position with the IISS indicates a potential conflict of interest given the think tanks’ financial ties to sponsors who are anti-American and in some cases, states sponsors of terrorism. 
A reference of the IISS’ Sources of Funding Statement page reveals that the think tank also receives funds from a shocking list of special interest groups, including the Bahraini royal family, the Carnegie Corporation New York, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman, Executive Affairs Authority – Abu Dhabi, The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Defense, the China Institute of International Studies (CIIS), the embassies of China, Egypt, Turkey, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, the United Arab Emirates and the High Commission for Pakistan.
The IISS also accepted donations from George Soros’ Open Society Foundation and the Ploughshares Fund.
The Ploughshares Fund is financed by George Soros' Open Society Foundation. A May 5, 2016 article by the New York Times revealed that the Ploughshares Fund was a major player in efforts to sell the Iranian nuclear deal to the American public. The deal has been generally criticized as a foreign policy failure, resulted in the transfer of hundreds of billions of dollars to Iran without any concessions in return and has failed to prevent Iran from continuing to illegally test long range ICBM missiles in violation of both the deal and international sanctions.
George Soros has faced backlash internationally in Eastern Europe, after his organizations were banned from Hungary and placed under audit in Macedonia amid accusations that he was meddling in the countries’ political processes and improperly seeking to influence public opinion.  The media have exposed Soros’ financial support for anti-democracy movements in the United States who seek to undermine democratic institutions and pursue regime change. 
H.R. McMaster was appointed to the position of National Security Advisor after the resignation of Michael Flynn in February 2017. McMaster was widely praised by the mainstream media after he steered away from Flynn’s hardline stance towards terrorism, stating that the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism” was “not helpful.”
Although McMaster has extensive counterinsurgency experience from his years in Iraq, his legacy there has been criticized by the Asia Times as having utilized vast amounts of U.S. funds and resources only to leave behind an Iraqi government that was brittle and at risk of collapse, while failing to quell sectarian tensions that have allowed Iran to leverage interests throughout the Middle East and expand their influence through Hamas and Hezbollah.
How McMaster got there in the first place.
Trump interviewed McMaster at Mara Lago for a half an hour. He was under terrible pressure after firing Flynn to find someone.   And who recommended McMaster? You won’t believe this.  Senator John McCain. That’s right. The NSA got his job on the basis of a recommendation from the man who just saved Obamacare.

McMaster purges NSC staffer for warning about “globalists and Islamists”
John Guandolo, a former FBI agent and graduate of the Ranger School, who has investigated the domestic Islamist threat and founded Understanding the Threat, an organization to bring awareness of the threat of Islamic terrorism into the mainstream, warned that, in particular, the McMaster firing of Higgins, undermines our ability to fight Islamic terrorism by preventing us from identifying the threat. 
WATCH VIDEO of Mr Guandolo discussing the dismissal of Richard Higgins by General McMaster:
Richard Higgins, a top official of the National Security Council was fired last month after arguing in a memo that President Trump is under sustained attack from subversive forces both within and outside the government who are deploying Maoist tactics to defeat President Trump’s nationalist agenda.
“Globalists and Islamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed,” the memo warns. It argues that this has led “Islamists [to] ally with cultural Marxists,” but that in the long run, “Islamists will co-opt the movement in its entirety.”
“Because the left is aligned with Islamist organizations at local, national, and international levels, recognition should be given to the fact that they seamlessly interoperate through coordinated synchronized interactive narratives … These attack narratives are pervasive, full spectrum, and institutionalized at all levels. They operate in social media, television, the 24-hour news cycle in all media and are entrenched at the upper levels of the bureaucracies.”

McMaster’s NSC Coup Against Trump Purges Critics of Islam and Obama  - The National Security Council is becoming a national security threat.

President Trump promised a reset from Obama’s anti-Israel policies. McMaster picked Kris Bauman as the NSC’s point man on Israel. Bauman had defended Islamic terrorists and blamed Israel for the violence. He had urged pressure on Israel as the solution. Ideas like that fit in at McMaster’s NSC.
When Adam Lovinger urged that “more attention be given to the threat of Iran and Islamic extremism,” his security clearance was revoked.  Robin Townley was forced out in the same way.
Meanwhile Derek Harvey (right), who had tried to halt Obama’s $221 million terror funding prize to the Palestinian Authority, was forced out.   This too is part of the pattern. As Caroline Glick has pointed out, the personnel being purged in the McMaster coup “are pro-Israel and oppose the Iran nuclear deal.”
Harvey has experience as an intelligence officer, as an analyst at military commands, American embassies, and in the Defense Intelligence Agency. He’s viewed as an out-of-the-box thinker who has shown a keen knack for identifying threats before they’ve matured.   Harvey has also published articles and analyses, many of them critical of the Obama administration’s foreign policy in the Middle East.
Harvey shares Trump’s belief that in order for the United States to prevail in its fight against the self-declared Islamic State, al-Qaida, their various offshoots and a variety of other groups, American officials need to declare that the country is at war with “radical Islamic extremism” or the “radical jihadist agenda” or “militant Islam” — all of which he uses interchangeably.
Meanwhile, McMaster sent a letter to Susan Rice, Obama’s former National Security Adviser, assuring her that the NSC would work with her to “allow you access to classified information.” He claimed that Rice's continued access to classified information is "consistent with the national security interests of the United States." 

Steve Bannon is also
in General McMaster's crosshairs
because of Bannon's America First
and anti-globalist philosophy
Why does Susan Rice, who is alleged to have participated in the Obama eavesdropping on Trump people, need access to classified information? What national security purpose is served by it?
The same national security purpose that is served by McMaster’s purge of anyone at the NSC who dares to name Islamic terrorism, who wants a tougher stance on Iran, and who asks tough questions.
And the purge of reformers and original thinkers is only beginning.
The latest reports say that McMaster has a list of enemies who will be ousted from the NSC. And when that is done, the NSC will be a purely Obama-Bush operation. The consensus will be that the Iran Deal must stay, that Islam has nothing to do with Islamic terrorism, that we need to find ways to work with the aspirations of the Muslim Brotherhood, and that Israel must make concessions to terrorists.

If you loved the foreign policy that brought us 9/11, ISIS, and billions in funding to terrorists from Syria to Libya to the West Bank, you won’t be able to get enough of McMaster’s brand new NSC.    And neither will America’s enemies.   The swamp is overflowing. The National Security Council is becoming a national security threat.
