Westerners must understand the undiluted savagery of the Gazastinians

 Westerners must understand the undiluted savagery of the Gazastinians

.By Madeline Brooks

It is gut-wrenching to have to revisit the events of October 7 in southern Israel. But new evidence emerges that should shake our foundational thinking about Gazan civilians’ presumed innocence.

The Free Beacon has collected survivor reports. One of the survivors filmed the attacks:

Eyal Barad and his family hid in the safe room of their house from about 6:30 a.m. until the Israeli military evacuated them 12 or so hours later. But Barad, an engineer, had a rare view of the outside world thanks to a speed camera he had recently set up to bust his neighbors for driving on the sidewalk.

On the camera’s livestream, Barad watched three types of Gazans pass by his house: uniformed Hamas commandos carrying automatic weapons, RPGs, and grenades; casually dressed gunmen; and ordinary-looking men, women, and children. Barad said the ordinary Gazans vastly outnumbered the armed terrorists. He estimated that he saw at least a dozen children, who were between the ages of 10 and 15, and 30 women from Gaza. {snip]

“I can say with 100 percent certainty that [the women and kids] were not just innocent bystanders or looters. They were part of the massacre. They were part of the horrors that we endured that day.”

A mother describes hiding in her safe room with her children while a Gaza woman spent hours eating her food, serving meals to the Gazan men, and stealing the Israeli woman’s personal items, including her underwear.

Another survivor says he saw children between six and ten wearing Hamas military outfits, riding with a group of Hamas commandos. (my emphasis). Some of the boys were given rifles and told to kill the Israelis, which they did. The combatants’ young age would be surprising if one were not aware of how early military training begins in Gaza. In this video, we watch kindergartners execute a complex takeover of an Israeli outpost by killing a soldier. It is a graduation ceremony, and we see the whole family in proud attendance:

Tender-hearted people plead that these women and children are innocent. They are merely ‘brainwashed” and can be re-educated. Maybe. Perhaps some can.

But that argument makes the mistake of projecting one’s own values onto others, whose values may be substantially, and unchangeably, different. In this case, the decency and respect for human life that characterizes non-Muslims get projected onto a military/religious organization that values success at jihad more than anything else—more than one’s own life and certainly more than regard for an enemy’s life.

That sadistic contempt for Israeli life is displayed very ominously in a movie showing the October 7 atrocities that was watched by a vast audience of Gazan men in, of all places, the al Shifa hospital. The Gazans cheered wildly. So much for the notion that hospitals are only about saving lives:

The uproarious delight of the entertained jihadis should be chilling. Consequently, Israel and her supporters must think realistically about what to do with the Gazans—and their hideous ideology—once they win the war. [american thinker]

Nov 8, 2023″ March for Gaza” spreads more anti-Israel Lies.

Nov 8, 2023. Outside the Uganda Mission across from U.N.

The pro -‘palestinian’ press-hype hung their “Cease Fire Now” on this location since Dr. Martin Luther King spoke here 50 years ago opposing the Viet Nam war.

The infamous Linda Sarsour. (who once claimed Israel Is ‘Built on the Idea That Jews Are Supreme to Everyone Else’) was one of the main speakers at the March For Gaza. Listen with a critical ear as she has a air of confidence spouting propaganda that eschews the facts. (Behind her is BLM’s Tamika Mallory who has refused to say Israel has the right to exist) VIDEO:

.I listened to three speakers. Women. And they did not fail to disappoint. The Leftists and ‘palis’ have shamefully denied the crimes of Hamas, particularly their crimes against women and children.

Hypocrites who preach LOVE , like the Author of Fierce Love:A Bold Path to Ferocious Courage and Rule-Breaking Kindness That Can Heal the World, The Rev. Dr. Jacqui (Jacqueline) Lewis – . …. VIDEO:

.Author of Fierce Love:A Bold Path to Ferocious Courage and Rule-Breaking Kindness That Can Heal the World

They ignore history. Ancient history. Stuck on stupid, they rant about 75 years as though there had been no anti-Jewish attacks from the Muslim world prior to 1948.

NEXT, Marwa Janini , Sarsour’s successor as Executive Director of the Arab American Association of New York (AAANY) … a left-of-center org which focuses on immigration policy, criminal justice policy and other issues impacting the Arab American community in New York City. VIDEO:

Another woman who spoke, Carmen Perez, internationally-known civil and human rights leader and Chicana feminist; a co-founder of the Women’s March and the current executive director of The Gathering For Justice a far-left “social justice” advocacy organization established by far-left activist and singer Harry Belafonte.

Like her fellow Women’s March leaders Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, Perez has expressed support for Nation of Islam leader and anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan and her support of convicted Brinks robbery associate Baba Sekou Odinga.

Disappointed, I failed to get an audio  I could use.The police made our jobs as reporters difficult this day,  forcing the press to film from a distance: no press area. Forcing the press  to jockey for positions from across East 45th street.

Should Israel Spare the Gazan “Innocents”?: Madeline Brooks

Should Israel Spare the Gazan “Innocents”?
By Madeline Brooks*

As the world knows, or very tellingly, should know, the Israeli Defense Force goes to great lengths to spare the lives of Gazans presumed innocent. In the moral smog of war, this important fact is usually overlooked by the international crowd of Israel critics.

The IDF gave abundant warning to Gazans with leaflets and even phone calls to go to the south of Gaza, out of the immediate war zone. Some Gazans did head south, waving white flags and getting shot at by their own Hamas government. Others stayed, even though they were offered a substantial reward and a safe place to live if they cooperated in getting the hostages out.

Just who is Israel sparing? The sixteen year old boy who at this moment does not have a rifle in his hand, although his school books teach him to hate Jews? Hordes of “civilian” young men, out of uniform, who nevertheless swarmed into southern Israel on October 7 after the uniformed jihadis to rape, behead and burn Jewish families? How about the mother who sings her child to sleep with lullabies about killing Israelis, or the young girl engaged to a jihadi, egging him on?

Most horribly, a huge crowd of military age Gazan men were shown a movie of the massacres of Jews on October 7. This was the same video put together by the IDF from the cameras of the terrorists. Somehow the video got into the Gazans’ hands and was shown at al Shifa hospital. When Israeli journalists watched the video, many were so upset they vomited or sobbed uncontrollably. What did the Gazans do? They cheered. They roared their approval. Allahu Akbar.

Please watch the reaction of the Gazans presumed innocent starting at the 18:05 minute mark and repeated at the 32:36 minute mark.

(Edits to full video for fast reference, but full video is important link)

.These are among the creatures that the IDF may have been trying to spare, even at the cost of their own lives since the whole area could have been bombed so thoroughly from above that it would be turned into a parking lot, with no escape from the tunnels. Such was the sentiment among some at the start of the war. Instead, the IDF is engaged in a prolonged building to building fight, which puts its own soldiers at great risk, all to spare presumed innocents.

Does it make sense to spare one’s enemies whose blood lust gets fed by reliving what they did to Israelis a month ago – what they can and will do again when they see more weakness? Since Israel’s inception, every time its guard went down and it trusted its sworn enemies, it paid a terrible price in blood.

Sadly, and adding to the complexity of it all, there are some Gazans who reject Hamas and are willing to describe its horrors to an Israeli, as seen in this video. These Gazans had to flee to Europe to be able to speak freely about Hamas without getting their legs broken or getting killed. One of them speaks of friends still in Gaza who hate Hamas as much as he does.

Yet if Israel goes down, diaspora Jews will have very hard lives. More than that, the rest of the world will be faced with a “barbarism that has no place in the modern world” as Isaac Herzog, Israel’s president, said in an open letter to university administrators.

Across the planet, protests are going on to stop the bombing and spare the “innocent” civilians. That would mean protecting the terrorists-in-waiting that we see in the hospital’s movie audience. Protests by the keffiyeh kiddos inspire the jihad and bring in fresh recruits, as well as putting pressure on weak government officials to stop Israel from fully defending herself.

Israel could have taken the Joshua option, eliminating all threats as in the Old Testament books of Deuteronomy and Joshua. But it has chosen a softer approach, one that may bring more war upon its head in the future, and still no world acceptance. As we see, anti Israel and anti Jewish protests began even before Israel went into Gaza, and grow stronger everyday. Hate has a life of its own. Holding back on war efforts has no apparent effect on rage against Jews.

Any other country would be widely praised for its self-sacrifice. But not Israel. Israel gets accused of committing genocide, a projection of what Hamas is clearly doing.

Israel has a hard choice to make: Dodge worldwide criticism or fight like Joshua and the Israelites in the Old Testament book of Deuteronomy, where the Almighty ordered the elimination of all who did not answer the call to surrender. Survival may only come by fighting Biblically. Granted, that sounds morally difficult in today’s climate, though it was practiced by the United States in Dresden, Germany and two Japanese cities during WWII.

Certainly, watching the video of Gazan men, who may be off duty jihadists, cheering as they watch their fellows chop, rape and burn other human beings…that should open new doors to careful thinking about Gazan innocents.

NYC Protesters Demands CUNY Stand with “palestine”

CUNY is COMPLICIT in Genocide

Nov 2, 2023.  Outside CUNY offices on 42nd st.
First poster from the “palis’ and leftists

The anti-Israel protestors parrot one message,
“If you support Israel, you SUPPORT Genocide.

 The PRO ISRAEL poster promotes
Rally against TERROR

Rally for ISRAEL!

“They Lie and Deny the Oct 7 massacre.
Hamas and those cheering in the streets deserve no mercy.”

Don’t look away.

Back to 42nd st and those who SUPPORT Israel

Video- Part 1 . A small but valiant group of patriots supporting Israel was enough to upset the ‘palis’

Words straight from a senior Hamas official:

“We will repeat the actions of October 7 again and again until Israel is destroyed.”Hamas has one goal: To wipe Israel and its people off the face of the earth. “

LINK for Hamas video:  [https://www.instagram.com/reel/CzJbP2vNf98/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link]

The October 7th attack by Hamas,
the deaths and kidnapped children,
continues to be ignored by the palis AND the leftists.

We must Stand With Israel

Video Part 2
More from the ‘palis” and their anti-Israel chants and signs

. From the Matt Walsh Show, a major publication published an article claiming that “MAGA Republicans” are more dangerous than Hamas.

This is all part of a far ranging plan by the Left to demonize and dehumanize their political opponents.

And we all know where it leads.” [The Daily Wire]

 In the background of the next video, at third Avenue,  I noticed later there was a vandalized hostage /kidnapped poster.

Video Part 3 – more palis

LEFT VOICE banner  (an example of who supports the pali genocide of the Jews ) “Left Voice is a revolutionary socialist news site and magazine dedicated to fostering a sustained and strategic struggle against every form of capitalist exploitation and oppression.”

“As part of an international network of news sites …  Left Voice is able to provide a truly internationalist perspective on revolutionary politics, … to examine the movements of the U.S. working class within the larger framework of global revolution.”  [https://www.leftvoice.org/]

Sad reminder that there are people across the West who openly celebrated this massacre as an act of “decolonization”. TwitterX

“Israel suggested the Arab’s a State, 5 times, but they declined it because they want all the land, between the river and the sea.TwitterX

And as the JEW HATRED grows, even the police are fearful of standing up for Israel:

… filmed by  
(a cop hating twitter site)
“… a man waving an Israel flag as a pro-Palestine march approached in NYC.
Cops moved him away and surrounded him and told him to put the flag away because he was instigating.”

SAD. WRONG. Censorship that aides the genocidal palis by silencing the truth. We must NOT be SILENT.

How can Gazans stop the Israeli bombings?

My Guest today is Madeline Brooks, addressing the Gazans and the bombings.

How can Gazans stop the Israeli bombings?

By Madeline Brooks/ November 4, 2023/ . [American Thinker]

“I write about what could stop the bombing if they took responsibility for themselves, and I look at them through a family systems lens. They are like the very troubled child living off Daddy who wants to burn the house down. Let us not buy into their self pitying smokescreen.” MB

Madeline is a conservative and counter-jihad writer.  She can be reached at resistjihad@aol.com

.The latest moral confusion about the Hamas/Gaza problem is whether or not to continue bombing.  The plea is that civilians are innocent and must be spared.  A mainstream TV broadcast showed a wide-eyed Gaza man saying, “I was as surprised as the Israelis by the October 7 attack.  So why punish me with bombing?”

This is a message for you, Mr. Average Gazan, and any other Gazan like you.  Here’s why Gaza is still being bombed.

First of all, it’s hard to know if you are telling the truth.  The terrorists planning the attack acted for two years as if they were peaceful, all the while stockpiling weapons.  Taqiyyah, or lying to your enemies, is endorsed in the Koran (3:28) and in other Muslim writings.  An apparent peacemaker, Hamas official Ghazi Hamad, who was responsible for the Gilad prisoner exchange, turned out to be totally treacherous.  While fooling the leftist chump he bargained with, Hamad talked about negotiating peace.  Now Hamad shows his true colors, vowing to repeat the October 7 massacre over and over until Israel is eliminated, as Caroline Glick points out.

Also, Mr. Ordinary Gazan, although you may not have known the exact date of the latest massacre, all Hamas has been screaming about is death to Israel from the start.  So don’t play innocent.

Secondly, you have been receiving food, water, electricity, and medicine mostly from Israel, your so-called oppressor.  Actually, Israel has been your daddy, and you have let yourself live like a ward of the state — a supremely ungrateful ward.  When Israel pulled out of Gaza in 2005, it left you orchards and sophisticated greenhouses, which produced income for the Jews who developed them and could have for you, too.  But you tore them down out of spite.  You also could have developed your beautiful beaches into profitable resorts.  There was no Israeli “occupation” preventing your economic development, since Israel was not there.  But Hamas was, and you apparently accepted Hamas’s dictatorial, one-party control.

Wake up to how your Islamist leaders have been taking international money that was meant for you and using it for their own luxurious living as well as for secret armaments.  That is a big part of why you are poor.

Thirdly, Israel has offered peace to you on multiple occasions, but you preferred war, and a continuation of your hostile dependency.  Looking at this mess from a family systems dynamic, you are the deeply troubled child refusing to help himself, relying totally on others to support him, and staying emotionally and financially crippled, taking pride not in accomplishments, but in destruction.  Beyond that is your insane conviction that your host country must die, even as you bite the hand that feeds you.  Apparently, neither you nor the world has noticed yet how untenable your demands are.  You have successfully put up a smokescreen of self-pity and victim hood, which does nothing to help you getting well.

Playing the victim card right now, begging the world to make Israel stop the war, is a continuation of the smokescreen, giving Hamas more time to get strong and renew the attacks it has announced it will resume.

Fourthly, Gazans owe the world and especially Israelis an apology for all of the above.  You must declare that you reject Hamas’s goal to kill all the Jews and take over Israel and the world.  Tell the worldwide “hate Jews” movement yelling in support of you that it’s time for them to grow up, too.  If you, Mr. Average Gazan, really want the bombing to stop, you must cooperate with Israel and help the Israelis find Hamas operatives and weapons caches, and whatever else will help the Israeli war effort.

In short, Gazans must take full responsibility for their support of Hamas and do all they can to disable it.  Otherwise, Israel has no good reason to stop the bombing.  You, Mr. Average Gazan, have been given the benefit of the doubt as an innocent victim.  And you have shown you don’t deserve it.

Prove otherwise.  Work now with Israel to halt the war and then develop a peaceful way of life.  Or get bombed.  The choice is yours.

Will this happen?  Not very likely.  But it is the moral path forward.  Stating it can help you get clear on your need to take responsibility for yourself.  It can also help the guilt-ridden international community make a decision to no longer let themselves be manipulated by your endless irrationalities.

My Flickr slideshow  from October 13, 2023, in Times Square focuses on the obnoxious International Day of Action for “palestine”.

The “palis’ and their Commie supporters ALWAYS put on a good show. Posters, marches, chants. The media loves them. BUT what is MISSING?

These are LIES. ALL lies.

DSC_9296 copy

Adding two addendums that compliment Madeline’s post:

The true history of the Jews of the Middle East

Seventy-five years ago, my husband’s family was part of Egypt’s flourishing Jewish community. After Israel’s establishment in 1948, their community was destroyed. Egyptian Jews fled anti-Jewish persecution or were expelled.

But, speaking to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi recently denied this well-documented history. Instead, he audaciously claimed:

“I grew up in a neighborhood side-by-side with the Jews of Egypt. They were never subject to any form of persecution whatsoever. They were never targeted in any way whatsoever…. Maybe they were targeted in Europe, in Spain, in other countries, but in our Arab and Islamic region, nothing like this ever happened.”

While astonishing that Sisi, the leader of a U.S. ally, would spread ahistorical propaganda — many on the extreme political left promote similar lies.

The reason is simple: Middle Eastern and North African Jews do not fit a neat narrative about Israel’s supposed evil as a symbol of Western colonialism. The culpability of Jews and the “eternal innocence” of those who brutally resist the West by murdering civilians does not allow for Jewish victimhood when the perpetrators are not white or European.

But the history of Jewish life under hundreds of years of Islamic rule paints a different picture.

Jews under Islamic regimes were dhimmi, or a “protected people of the book” permitted to live in Muslim societies. They were however subject to regulations, such as paying the jizyah tax levied on non-Muslims, exclusion from certain professions, restricted habitation in ghettos, and often forced to wear distinctive clothing meant to demonstrate submission to Muslims.

Even with this “protected” status, Jews were under threat as a minority. Fanatics who rejected tolerant Islam often perpetrated anti-Jewish violence, including the slaughter and expulsion of Jewish tribes in the 7th century, the Almohades’ persecution in the 12th century, 17th-century forced conversion of Jews in Isfahan and manifold other expulsions, massacres and forced conversions — all of which are often erased in historical retellings like Sisi’s.

Modern history of anti-Jewish violence by fundamentalist Islamists is also denied or ignored. Before Israel was established, more than 800,000 Jews lived across the Middle East and North Africa. After Israel’ s establishment, hundreds of thousands of Jews left, fled or were expelled from Islamic-majority countries, threatened by rising Arab anti-Jewish sentiment and violence.

This persecution — ironically — resulted in todays’ Israeli Jewish population whose majority is made up of “Brown” Mizrahi Jews, indisputably indigenous to the region even for those with a penchant for denying ancient Jewish ties to Israel. With a few exceptions, their families’ former countries have largely become Jew-free. Today, as a Jew, I cannot safely visit most of the countries that generations of my extended family once called home.

But why is anti-Jewish violence and antisemitism in both pre-modern and modern Middle East and North Africa denied or ignored?

The reason is simple. Erasing Middle Eastern Jewish history and historical oppression of Jews sets up a bedrock of falsehoods to support the justification for terror: The decolonization argument, the belief that Hamas’ terror serves as legitimate resistance to a colonizing power.

Proponents of this false theory argue that Zionism grew directly from Western colonialism. Jews who settled Israel are seen as white European colonizers who carry the West’s moral stains and re-victimize its Muslim innocents. The Holocaust, typically understood as a key event in the legitimization of Zionism, is construed as yet another crime of European colonialism that indirectly led to the persecution of Palestinians.

Seeing this conflict as merely a question of colonialism is based on historical lies and allows for grotesque moral conclusions.

First, any violence against Israelis is legitimized and becomes the fault of the colonizers — either Europeans or Jews themselves — but never fundamentalist Islamists who perpetrate them.

Second, Jews cease to be innocent civilians. Whether adults or babies, whether they support a two-state solution or not, whether Israelis or Jews living in countries outside of Israel, they are legitimate targets for “freedom fighters” engaged in a prolonged anti-colonial struggle.

This false narrative assumes that Israelis should be viewed strictly as colonizers and Palestinians strictly as their resisters. It assumes that fundamentalist Islamists bear no responsibility for their actions. It ignores anti-Jewish violence by Islamists around the world. It denies agency to the very people whom it claims to speak for — Palestinians. It assumes that if only Israel were to dismantle itself, Jews would live peacefully again in the Middle East.

The events of Oct. 7 — and their aftermath — show the utter folly of that idea.

Empty Chairs / Broken Hearts set for Shabbat- NYC

4 pm. Oct 26, 2023. Duffy Square at 46th st and Bdway.
In the middle of Times Square I found 224
Empty Tables/Empty Chairs” set for shabbat.

“On October 7th,2023, an unprecedented and horrifying attack against Israel was launched over  Shabbat and the holiday of Shemini Atzeret.


In times of crisis, we MUST stand together. While our hearts break for the wounded, kidnapped, and murdered and their families, we are proud that our community rallies to show our support.” [IAC Israel]


First slide show : The 224 places representing those held hostage by Hamas in Gaza, 30 of them are children. HOSTAGES of HAMAS. This is a CRIME against Humanity. Israel. And the Jews.

Video 1- Walking around the empty chairs. The children’s tables. High chairs. baby bottles. The beautiful flowers and challah. It was a deeply moving experience particularly the children’s table where chairs were knocked over and little toy-bears were blind folded and torn apart.

Video 2-  IAC Board Member,  Tal Shuster  was the first speaker.

Tal was born and raised in Israel, serving three years as an Officer in the Israeli Army, Tal arrived in the United States to complete her studies and graduate from Rutgers. Tal and her husband Eyal Shuster, have four children and live in Jersey City.

She was followed briefly by a woman who held a list of the countries supporting “palestine”; the hatred and racism. [She was being interviewed on camera so she wasn’t on mic.]

BRING THEM HOME NOW! Rally for Israeli Hostages in NYC

October 19 , 2023. Duffy Sq.
Bring Them Home NOW!
Powerful and deeply emotional.

Security was tight, as I expected.   My press cameras were inspected to make sure they were actually cameras, but … understood.

FLICKR Slideshow Part 1

Once in the press enclosure, I wasn’t sure  I was loving this location, surrounded by way too many cameras, but this was where I landed.* fellow journalists were getting great video and pictures of the crowd from outside the press area.* so, eventually, I too left this area.

FLICKR Slideshow Part 2

DSC_9472 copy 2

The evening began with U.S. National Anthem AND then Hatikvah (sung by Gilad Paz and Shiri Maimon).

Then, from the MC: “We no longer can be the Jews trembling in the shadows,” actor and activist Yuval David, a dual Israeli and American citizen, “We know what happened to us then, and we know what is happening to us now.” (the video is an excerpt of his opening remarks)

Elan Carr (CEO of Israeli American Council, quoted by WPIX) “The (hostages) are suffering unimaginable agony every moment, and we are here to demand the release of those hostages as well as to stand for Israel’s inalienable right to defend itself decisively.” 

Elan Carr then introduced Sen. Chuck Schumer (D) Senate Majority Leader and highest-ranking Jewish official in US history. The senator pledged America would do everything it can to rescue those held by the terrorists.

Video: NYC Mayor Eric Adams, who was supposed to be at the rally, bailed and sent a recorded message instead. He started awkwardly referring to Emmet Till, then once on message with the tragedy in Israel, he concluded by hoping for a PEACEFUL Resolution.(what would that entail?)

Ambassador Gilad Erdan (permanent representative of Israel to the United Nations since 2020) Gilad Erdan, Israel’s ambassador to the UN, declared that “Gaza will not have a moment of quiet until we bring them home and we will bring them. Israel will prevail.” (NY Post)

The parents of Israeli-American hostage, Omer Nuetra: Ronen and Orna Neutra. Omer had just turned 22.

The Acting General Council of Israel in NY- Aviv Ezra .

ALL were impassioned and committed to BRING THEM HOME-NOW.

Found this on line at Twitter X-We as Muslims, don’t hate any body for what they are , we deal with someone according to his actions with us. The issue in Palestine now is they want their land back from the occupying Zionist. Before Israel, there were a jews in Palestine and every thing was alright.”
NOT CORRECT, but this is what they have been TAUGHT

I left the press area to get a better look at the crowd.

  It was huge and message oriented.

15 billboards in Times Sq were alive with the faces of those kidnapped. The mother and daughter below were freed the next day, BUT tragically there are still 200 hostages.

Israeli American Council demands the 200 hostages be freed NOW. However, Hamas has said it will not release the hostages until Israel ends its attack on Gaza, where some 2.3 million Palestinians live. The terrorists have also demanded the release of thousands of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli custody.

SO, is a PEACEFUL resolution even possible when the hostages are not HOME?

NYC Climate Ignorati March against “fossil” fuels- again.


Signs are good that the western monarch butterfly is again flourishing in the Golden State after fluttering near the brink of extinction. The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation has announced that its most recent yearly monarch count registered more than 330,000 of the distinctive orange-and-black beauties in California—a massive increase since 2020, when just 2,000 were tallied

The world’s poorest people contribute the least but suffer the most from the climate crisis. Climate change impacts people’s health, ability to access nutritious food, and livelihoods.

YET: the Hypocrisy of the Greenies jumps to the FRONT:

Sept 23 Global Citizen Festival destroys Great Lawn Central Park


Never Mind: the Carbon loons who justify their personal JETS with CARBON CREDITS ….A world controlled by the ELITES …. We are just along for the ride.

Humanity For Peace Aug 6, 2023 – NYC (Part 2)

Part Two continues covering the Humanity for Peace Memorial (Part 1)

“Was this a peace memorial or a political campaign, crusade, drive, grassroots movement, lobby, and/or a popular front.

Aug 6, 2023 in Dag Hammarsköld Plaza, across from the U.N. with Hiroshima/Nagasaki as the forgotten step-child.

One of the many sponsors was Caleb Maupin (Center for Political Innovation)

“The crisis facing the United States, exacerbated by the pandemic, is rooted in the capitalist system. The US has embraced insane, libertarian neo-liberal economics. [ …] The public is viewed by the ruling elite as an obnoxious horde to be controlled and managed. The United States and the rest of the world are being reduced to greater poverty, in order to ensure that a clique of big bankers and international monopolies can stay at the top of a global high-tech economy. The danger of a new world war hangs over the USA, as it threatens countries like China, Russia, Iran, and Venezuela.”

 Caleb Maupin represents the younger generation and their dedication to Socialism. Caleb seems to be one of the many who supports La Rouche/Schiller in tandem with hard Left / Socialist/Communist cohorts.

He is a widely acclaimed speaker, writer, journalist, and political analyst and has traveled extensively in the Middle East and in Latin America.

A previous post re Socialism and the Left (2018) Caleb for 16 minutes walks the streets of NY while tracing the economic history of socialism and why capitalism is the problem . [@RealCalebMaupin] 

IN CONCLUSION,We need to tell people in the United States that Socialism will make your lives better and it’s capitalism that’s causing so much misery and insecurity.” (15:36 to 16:10)

Caleb T. Maupin has been involved in many struggles for social justice (as) an outspoken advocate of international friendship and cooperation, as well 21st Century Socialism. CPIUSA.org : Center for Political Innovation [@RealCPIUSA]

on this reporter at the top of the clip [riff 0:11 to 00:47]
This is a far cry (hair-wise) from Caleb Maupin 2023. Now so clean cut as he moves from street agitator to suited reporter at Press (Iran ) TV and  RT- Russian TV, claiming to love America, even though he believes Capitalism is the problem.
Why do I have “right-wing” friends now? Because most of my “left-wing” friends stabbed me in the back, and turned on me out of Trump Derangement Syndrome. My beliefs have remained the same. I want to stop WW3. I support all anti-imperialist countries. I oppose Western Capitalism. I advocate empowering the US working class to create a Socialist Society in America.”
“The “woke” left does not believe this, and signing on with them means turning on anyone who does. I refused to change. I’ve been to global communist gatherings. I’ve met with youth from DPRK, China, Vietnam, Cuba and other socialist countries. I know what this stuff is really about and I’m down for the whole thing. I won’t be “wokified.” I’ll build @realcpiusa and work with anyone I can to carry out our minimum, maximum and transitional program.”
Caleb asks: Will the Trump MAGA crowd open a path to Socialism?MAGA and the Crisis of Capitalism.
China, Russia, Venezuela, Nicaragua are showing how growth can actually be achieved…. Controlled means of production to ensure economic growth. It is what the MAGA people want, but they revolt against it because of the term “Socialism”…. the “fight” will be between Fascism and Socialism.’
The Next Generation Communists/Socialists are nurtured in our schools and colleges – they do not chose their path, they are CHOSEN with relentless propaganda …. Watching Caleb march up the ladder of totalitarianism, seems a waste of brains and talent, yet so many like him are also dedicated to this New Normal: SOCIALISM.
…. that confuses, then claims the next (victim) convert.

What happened to Nord Stream 2 pipeline?

Gas deliveries ceased in September 2022 following the destruction of three of the pipe lines and sanctions linked to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. As of February 2023, there is no conclusive evidence of who carried out the sabotage despite three separate investigations by Denmark, Germany, and Sweden.

Six commercial maglev systems are currently in operation around the world. One is located in Japan, two in South Korea, and three in China. Jul 13, 2023

 There are several disadvantages to maglev trains:
– Maglev guide paths are more costly than conventional steel railway tracks. Because the magnetic coils and material used in this setup are very costly.
– Maglev trains require an all-new set up right from the scratch. It is hard to be done as well as costly.
– As present railway infrastructure is of no use for maglev, it will either have to be replaced with the maglev system or an entirely new set up will have to be created; both of them will need a huge amount of cost for initial investments.
– Although maglev is pretty quiet, noise caused by air disturbance still occurs.
– Maglev trains are feasible only in urban areas.

China is now the proud parent of a National Maglev Transportation Technology Research Center. The revered Chengdu Aircraft Industry Cooperation (CAC) in South Central China is also dedicating significant resources to maglev.  China now has its own research programmes and says that it can do maglev better and cheaper than Germany or Japan. The growing number of maglev enthusiasts hope that its optimism is not unfounded. For now, the future of maglev seems likely to rest on these Oriental entrepreneurs” (These trains are very costly )

The BRICS group of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa has emerged as a formidable economic and geopolitical power.

BRICS Countries

In 2006, the foreign ministers of Brazil, Russia, India, and China met for the first time … marking the beginning of BRIC cooperation…. In 2011, with South Africa officially becoming a member, BRIC was enlarged to BRICS.  …in 2017, China successfully hosted the BRICS Xiamen Summit.

How long will the dollar last as the world’s default currency? The BRICS nations are gathering in South Africa this August with it on the agenda.

Not happy with Scott Ritter- NY Times 2012

Scott Ritter
, a former UN weapons inspector in the 1990s,
and a Marine Corps analyst during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan a decade prior, is among the cohort of Americans courted by Russian propaganda sources.

Recently, he launched a tour of his new book, “Disarmament in the time of the Perestroika,” in Russia, and presented it in cities such as Kazan, Irkutsk and Yekaterinburg. The book, he claims, aims to warn the US public about not seeking out escalations with Russia which could lead to a nuclear attack and insists the Western public has forgotten how difficult it was to achieve these agreements in the first place. [Euro-News  2023]

“Recently, he launched a ferocious debate after publishing an article alleging the US had bombed the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The controversial gas route through the Baltic Sea was supposed to circumvent countries like Ukraine and Poland – Russia’s main political opponents even before the invasion — in delivering gas to the western part of the continent.

Good People
Hoping for PEACE
Embracing Socialism

Are we there yet.
