Being in Berlin in Time Writings - Gilad Atzmon

In this Berlin talk (June 2017) I elaborate on identitarian politics being a cancerous disaster at the core of our current dystopia. I delve into ID politics' intellectual and political roots: the New Left, cultural Marxism and the meaning of fascism. I also spoke about philosophy of history  and German past in particular.  

p.s. I found out  that John Travolta's type blazer provides me with the necessary  extra oomph.

Review: Gilad Atzmon and the Orient House Ensemble in Bristol Writings - Gilad Atzmon

Gilad-Atzmon.jpg

 

By Elfyn Griffith, September 12, 2017

https://www.bristol247.com/

Do you like John Coltrane? asks Gilad Atzmon with an ironic smile after he and his band The Orient House Ensemble have opened tonight with a beautiful cover of Duke Ellingtons In A Sentimental Mood, Atzmons clarinet soaring deliciously above the melody, like Coltranes in the original.

Describing tonight as Coltrane light this constantly touring sax supremo who the Guardian once described as the hardest-gigging man in British jazz and his excellent band pay homage to one of the greatest jazzmen of all time with The Spirit of Trane.

John Coltrane, who died 50 years ago, was the most influential tenor saxophonist in jazz history, and while the sonic power of his music can never be overlooked his experimentalism confused some jazz audiences back in the day. As Atzmon says, he once emptied a gig in London in just seven minutes. No chance of that tonight though, as this is over ten minutes into tonights set and the warmth and feel that this amusing, supremely gifted and controversial figure gives to Coltranes sound is infectious.

Atzmon is an exiled Israeli and political activist who has courted controversy with articles and books about the injustices in the Middle East, but his philosophy and music has always sought to surmount boundaries and barriers and encompass different cultures. His band are named after the former East Jerusalem HQ of the PLO, Orient House. Hes also played with many people outside the jazz lexicon such as Ian Dury & The Blockheads and Pink Floyd to name but two.

Amid the lovely renditions of Coltranes material tonight, Atzmons natural comic talent comes to the fore, whether its joking with his drummer the versatile Enzo Zirilli about Brexit or about his own prostate problems, and how the bass clarinet could come in handy as a stage toilet (!), his big character comes to the fore.

And speaking of big characters, the huge frame of double bassist Yaron Stavi, concentration etched on his features as he strolls the strings of his bass with feeling, is a delight. As are the quite astounding touches and flourishes of pianist Frank Harrison. This is a gifted, tight unit, whove been together for a long time and flow and comp...

F.A.N. Newsletter UK Against Fluoridation

The results of the first ever US government funded study of fluoride/IQ have now been published. A team of researchers funded by the National Institute of Environmental Sciences--part of the National Institutes of Health--found that low levels of fluoride exposure during pregnancy are linked to significantly reduced IQ in children, according to a study published on September 19, 2017 in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.
The study, entitled Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 612 Years of Age in Mexico, was conducted by a team of scientists from University of Toronto, University of Michigan, Harvard, and McGill, and found:
higher levels of maternal urinary fluoride during pregnancy (a proxy for prenatal fluoride exposure) that are in the range of levels of exposure in other general population samples of pregnant women as well as nonpregnant adults were associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring at 4 and 612 y old.
Within hours of it being published, FAN released a video response featuring Chemist and Toxicologist, Professor Paul Connett, PhD.

It Gets Ugly in Catalonia Rigged Game

Spains ships of repression are coming to help out.

Madrids crackdown on Catalonia is already having one major consequence, presumably unintended: many Catalans who were until recently staunchly opposed to the idea of national independence are now reconsidering their options.

A case in point: At last nights demonstration, spread across multiple locations in Barcelona, were two friends of mine, one who is fanatically apolitical and the other who is a strong Catalan nationalist but who believes that independence would be a political and financial disaster for the region. It was their first ever political demonstration. If there is a vote on Oct-1, they will probably vote to secede.

The middle ground they and hundreds of thousands of others once occupied was obliterated yesterday when a judge in Madrid ordered Spains militarized police force, the Civil Guard, to round up over a dozen Catalan politicians in dawn raids. Many of them now face crushing daily fines of up to 12,000.

The Civil Guard also staged raids on key administrative buildings in Barcelona. The sight of balaclava-clad officers of the Civil Guard, one of the most potent symbols of the not-yet forgotten Franco dictatorship, crossing the threshold of the seats of Catalonias (very limited) power and arresting local politicians, was too much for the local population to bear

A Look At How Nestle Makes Billions Selling You Groundwater In A Bottle Rigged Game

Cross-posted from Zero Hedge

A few weeks ago we shared with readers a lawsuit filed in Connecticut against Nestle Waters North America, Inc. alleging that the water they marketed as Poland Natural Spring Water was actually just bottled groundwaterthe same water that runs through the taps of many American households.

Now a new investigation from Bloomberg Businessweek reveals how large water bottling companies choose their plant locations based not on the steady supply of pristine, natural drinking water, as their labels and other marketing campaigns would lead you to believe, but based on which economically depressed municipalities offer up the most tax breaks and have the most lax water laws.

As an example, even in the drought stricken state of California, Bloomberg notes that Nestle was able to strike a sweetheart 20-year supply agreement with the U.S. Forest Service to pay roughly $0.000001 for the water in each bottle that consumers blindly drop a couple bucks to purchase.

But it illuminates how Nestl has come to dominate a controversial industry, spring by spring, often going into economically depressed municipalities with the promise of jobs and new infrastructure in exchange for tax breaks and access to a resource thats scarce for millions. Where Nestl encounters grass-roots resistance against its industrial-strength guzzling, it deploys lawyers; where its welcome, it can push the limits of that hospitality, sometimes with the acquiescence of state and local governments that are too cash-strapped or inept to say no. There are the usual costs of doing business, including transportation, infrastructure, and salaries. But Nestl pays little for the product it bottlessometimes a municipal rate and other times just a nominal extraction fee. In Michigan, its $200.

Elsewhere, Nestl has largely prevailed against opposition. In Fryeburg, Maine, it took the company four years to successfully appeal a zoning board resolution to build a facility it said it needed for its Poland Spring line. Last year it gained rights to extract water for the next 20 yearsand perhaps 25 more after that. In San Bernardino, Calif., Nestl has long paid the U.S. Forest Service an annual rate of $524 to extract about 30 million gallons, even during droughts. Our public agencies have dropped the ball, says Peter Gleick, co-founder of the Pacific Institute, which focuses on water issues. Every gallon of water that is taken out of a natural system for bottled water is a gallon of water that doesnt flow down a stream, that doesnt support a natural...

Amphibische Kriegsfhrung German Foreign Policy

(Eigener Bericht) - Mit einem Gromanver in der Ostsee bringt sich die Bundeswehr gegen Russland in Stellung. Das Szenario der unter der Bezeichnung "Northern Coasts" firmierenden bung erinnert stark an den Konflikt in der Ukraine. Trainiert wird die Entsendung einer EU-Interventionstruppe in ein fiktives Land, dessen Einheit von "Separatisten" bedroht ist, die ihrerseits von einem "militrisch starken" Drittstaat untersttzt werden. In der Folge kommt es laut Drehbuch zu "immer intensiveren Konfrontationen" bis hin zu gegenseitigen "Seeblockaden". Unter anderem beinhaltet das Manver die Landung deutscher und niederlndischer Marineinfanteristen an einer von feindlichen Streitkrften kontrollierten Kste mit dem Ziel, im Hinterland liegende Ortschaften einzunehmen. Bei "Northern Coasts" handelt es sich um eine sogenannte Einladungsbung des Generalinspekteurs der Bundeswehr, die nach eigenem Bekunden einen "besonderen Stellenwert" fr die Truppe hat. Dieser resultiere daraus, dass nicht nur "NATO-Partner", sondern auch die "neutralen Ostseeanrainer" Schweden und Finnland mageblich beteiligt seien, heit es.

TAYLOR: I can be the next PM in No.10 GUERRILLA DEMOCRACY NEWS


MOAI KING WILLIAM IV Party leader Matt Taylor has insisted he is a credible candidate to be the next Prime Minister. Despite coming last in the 2015 Brighton Kemptown general election with just 69 votes, Taylor said he could replace Theresa May in 10 Downing Street.

The Moai King William IV party leader told BBC Ones The Andrew Marr Show, I think its perfectly plausible, actually, as leader of Britains newest political party, my job is to be the alternative Prime Minister.

Championing the forgotten memory of King Arthur II and representing the surrogate King William IV, John Wanoa from New Zealand, Taylor said, I think British politics is in a remarkable state of disaster. You have got the Conservative party committing false flag events, while fleecing the British public dry. You have got a Labour party of wolves in sheep clothing and the Liberal party lead by a granddad.

I, and the Moai King William IV party, are the real alternative.

Asked if the Moai King William IV party is a credible political party, Taylor said, If British party politics starts to break down, if the traditional structures start to break up, and that could well happen, we are perfectly positioned with amazing and wondrous policies guaranteed to save the nation.

The Revolutionary Poop-le Writings - Gilad Atzmon

GUPS_Potty_Training.jpg Share

By Gilad Atzmon

Poopootov cocktails (plastic or glass jars filled with a mix of human excrement and water) have become the prime anarchist weapons in the revolutionary struggle toward a utopian diverse universe. In America and other Identitarian battlefronts around the world there have been repeated incidents of social justice heroes hitting their enemies with cocktail missiles made of urine, poop and other juicy ingredients that originate from the human body. Antifa is not alone in its choice, in Venezuela it is actually the anti socialist anarchists led by Henrique Capriles Radonski who are excitedly using poopootov ballistics. 

I wonder, what is it that motivates young revolutionaries to throw their excrement on others? What kind of zeal leads to such a disgusting crude dismissal of otherness? What are the political and ideological roots of this emerging pervasive new ethos?

Francoist Clampdown in Catalonia Rigged Game

DQ here: Barcelona is in a heightened state of anxiety right now as the Guardia Civil expands its Operation Anubis, fittingly named after the Egyptian god of death, into just about every nook and cranny of Catalonias government institutions. Im working on a couple of pieces, including one about Catalonia for WS which should be ready by the end of the day, but in the meantime I leave you with part of a piece by former UK ambassador Craig Murray which highlights the Francoist origins of the current Spanish government the same government that a couple of years ago outlawed all forms of protest it doesnt like in the Orwellian-termed Citizens Security law, more popularly known as the Gag Law (Ley Mordaza).

Francoist Clampdown in Catalonia

There is a peculiar reluctance in the British and other European mainstream media to state the truth about the very real Francoist origins of the Spanish government. The current government of Spain are the direct political heirs of Franco and that many of their ministers have personal and family connections to his rule. Rajoy, Spains current Prime Minister, started his political career in 1981 by joining the Peoples Alliance, a party founded in 1979 and led by 7 of Francos ministers to carry on the Francoist legacy. The Peoples Alliance became the major component in the now governing Peoples Party. It is a directly Francoist party.

The fascist instincts of the Madrid government when faced with the entirely legitimate desire for a democratic vote on Catalonian Independence are therefore part of the very political DNA of the ruling party. It is a truth which it is more convenient for the Establishment to avoid, particularly in Britain where it is feared Catalan Independence might encourage Scottish Independence.

The European Commission has shown commendable rectitude in warning both Poland and Hungary in strong terms of the consequences of their right wing lurches away fro democracy. It would be good to see the Commission and European governments warning Spain now, for actions which are a bigger threat to democracy than the Polish or Hungarian right have so far dared. But that would not suit the agenda of the neo-liberal ruling Establishment, so do not hold your breath.

Link UK Against Fluoridation

Fluoride again will be added to Albuquerques water supply.

Water utility board members voted 5-2 Wednesday to approve a $250,000 appropriation that will allow the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority to buy the equipment needed to resume supplemental drinking-water fluoridation, which the utility halted in 2011.
The decision followed nearly an hour of passionate pleas by both opponents and supporters of fluoridation similar to comments expressed at two earlier public hearings on the issue.
At the end of the day, when theres a question about science, we need to listen to the scientists, board member and Albuquerque City Councilor Pat Davis said before he voted in favor of resuming fluoridation. Davis withdrew his proposal for an advisory question on the 2018 general election ballot that would have asked Bernalillo County voters whether they support or oppose supplemental fluoridation.
Voting against the appropriation were Albuquerque Councilors Klarissa Pea and Trudy Jones. Joining Davis in support were Bernalillo County Commissioners Debbie OMalley, Wayne Johnson and Maggie Hart Stebbins and Albuquerques Chief Administrative Officer Rob Perry, who represents Mayor Richard Berry on the board..............
Shame the latest research was published after the vote, it may well have changed the decision.

Mit deutschen Waffen German Foreign Policy

(Eigener Bericht) - Das fr Montag angekndigte Referendum zur Abspaltung der kurdischsprachigen Gebiete des Irak grndet auf jahrelanger Untersttzung der Bundesregierung fr die dortige Autonomieregion. Der Barzani-Clan, der die Regionalregierung kontrolliert, unterhlt schon seit Jahrzehnten gute Verbindungen zu fhrenden Politikern von CDU und CSU. Die Autonomieregion selbst wird seit 2005 von Berlin systematisch gefrdert - durch wirtschaftliche Hilfen, durch den Aufbau deutscher Institutionen und jngst durch die Ausbildung und Aufrstung der Peschmerga zu einer schlagkrftigen Truppe. Geschah Letzteres offiziell, um einen Verbndeten im Krieg gegen den IS zu strken, so knnten die Peschmerga ihre deutschen Waffen jetzt auch nutzen, um eine Abspaltung des Gebiets bei Bedarf militrisch durchzusetzen. Unter den Augen der Bundeswehr haben sie zudem unter dem Deckmantel des Kriegs gegen den IS sogenannte ethnische Suberungen in Orten durchgefhrt, die bislang nicht zur Kurdischen Autonomieregion gehrten. Damit soll beim bevorstehenden Referendum die gewnschte prokurdische Mehrheit gesichert werden. Berlin uert aktuell allerdings Einwnde gegen den Zeitpunkt des Sezessionsreferendums.

Israels chief stooge at Westminster shames us again Philosophers Stone

By Stuart Littlewood

As prime minister, I am proud to say that I support Israel. And it is absolutely right that we should mark the vital role that Britain played a century ago in helping to create a homeland for the Jewish people. 

Thus spake Theresa May the other day as she welcomed members of the Jewish community to 10 Downing Street. But by focusing on creating a homeland for the Jewish people shes also celebrating the hell that Balfours Declaration created for the gentle Palestinians and for the rest of the region. Born of that letter, the pen of Balfour, and of the efforts of so many people, is a remarkable country, said May, apparently blind to the reality.

Proud of unspeakable misery, dispossession and displacement

Right now were on the run-up to the centenary of what is arguably the biggest foreign policy blunder in British history: the Balfour Declaration. In 1917 Arthur Balfour, Foreign Secretary, bowed to Zionist demands for a homeland for the Jews in Palestine and gave an undertaking that set the world on course for long-term turmoil and, for the native Palestinians, unspeakable misery, dispossession and displacement. It was a criminal conspiracy. And Balfour was an A-list idiot who bragged that he wasnt even going to consult the local Arab population about this theft of their homes and lands.

Yet he remains a hero of the Conservative Party which, led by Theresa May, plans to celebrate this hundred-year running sore as Lord Sydenham called it in great style, inviting Israels prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu to the festivities. Thats if the mad-dog warmonger isnt under arrest by then on imminent charges of corruption back home.

I will always do whatever it takes to keep our Jewish community safe, May added. Through our new definition of anti-Semitism we will call out anyone guilty of any language or behaviour that displays hatred towards Jews because they are Jews. We will actively encourage the use of this definition by the police, the legal profession, universities and other public bodies.

The Silencing of Dissent Rigged Game

By Chris Hedges and cross-posted from Truth Dig

The ruling elites, who grasp that the reigning ideology of global corporate capitalism and imperial expansion no longer has moral or intellectual credibility, have mounted a campaign to shut down the platforms given to their critics. The attacks within this campaign include blacklisting, censorship and slandering dissidents as foreign agents for Russia and purveyors of fake news.

No dominant class can long retain control when the credibility of the ideas that justify its existence evaporates. It is forced, at that point, to resort to crude forms of coercion, intimidation and censorship. This ideological collapse in the United States has transformed those of us who attack the corporate state into a potent threat, not because we reach large numbers of people, and certainly not because we spread Russian propaganda, but because the elites no longer have a plausible counterargument.

The elites face an unpleasant choice. They could impose harsh controls to protect the status quo or veer leftward toward socialism to ameliorate the mounting economic and political injustices endured by most of the population. But a move leftward, essentially reinstating and expanding the New Deal programs they have destroyed, would impede corporate power and corporate profits. So instead the elites, including the Democratic Party leadership, have decided to quash public debate. The tactic they are using is as old as the nation-statesmearing critics as traitors who are in the service of a hostile foreign power. Tens of thousands of people of conscience were blacklisted in this way during the Red Scares of the 1920s and 1950s. The current hyperbolic and relentless focus on Russia, embraced with gusto by liberal media outlets such as The New York Times and MSNBC, has unleashed what some have called a virulent New McCarthyism.

The corporate elites do not fear Russia. There is no publicly disclosed evidence that Russia swung the election to Donald Trump. Nor does Russia appear to be intent on a military confrontation with the United States. I am certain Russia tries to meddle in U.S. affairs to its advantage, as we do and did in Russiaincluding our clandestine bankrolling of Boris Yeltsin, whose successful 1996 campaign for re-election as president is estimated to have cost up to $2.5 billion, much of that money coming indirectly from the American government. In todays media environment Russia is the foil. The corporate state is unnerved by the media outlets that give a voice to critics of corporate capitalism, the security and surveillance state and imperialism, including the network RT America.

US, South Korea, China and Russia Practice for War off Coast of North Korea Rigged Game

Cross-posted from The Anti-Media.org

East Asia  This week started off with what Reuters called a flurry of military drills in East Asia following the latest missile test by Kim Jong-uns regime. From the news agencys piece on Monday:

The U.S. military staged bombing drills with South Korea over the Korean peninsula and Russia and China began naval exercises ahead of a U.N. General Assembly meeting on Tuesday where North Koreas nuclear threat is likely to loom large.

The flurry of military drills came after Pyongyang fired another mid-range ballistic missile over Japan on Friday and the reclusive North conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on Sept. 3 in defiance of United Nations sanctions and other international pressure.

In a press release announcing the United States joint exercises with the South exercises that also involved elements from the military of Japan Captain Cassandra Gesecki of U.S. Pacific Command made it clear the drills were directly related to the Norths most recent launch:

United States Air Force and Marine Corps aircraft joined Japan Air Self-Defense Force and Republic of Korea Air Force aircraft in a sequenced bilateral show of force over the Korean Peninsula September 17, in response to North Koreas launch of an intermediate range ballistic missile (IRBM) over Japan on September 14.

According to Gesecki, the drills were executed using two U.S. B-1B bombers from Andersen Air Force base in Guam, four U.S. F-35B jets from the Marine Corps, four South Korean F-15K fighters, and four F-2 jets from Japan.

At the same time, China and Russia are conducting coordinated exercises of their own in the region. From The Independent:

Russia and China have begun major military drills less than 100 miles from the North Korean border, amid continuing tensions over the isolated states nuclear ambitions.
