How This Jewish Doctor Became An Agent For Qatar

It seems that The Jewnited States has forgotten that the Law should be EQUALLY applied to all its citizens. Not just to the Goyim! Under the Logan Act, what this ‘doctor’ is doing is illegal. This is what the Logan Act states: “Under the Logan Act, a US law passed during the infancy of the country by President John Adams, American citizens cannot negotiate with foreign officials without the authorization of the country. According to the text of the Logan Act of 1799, ‘Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.” Have anyone seen this happen to Doctor Frager alias the Qatari agent?. Oh! We forgot! He is a Jew! So he is above the Law!!

“How This Jewish Doctor Became An Agent For Qatar,” Source: forward.com

By day, Dr. Joseph Frager is a gastroenterologist with a conspicuous mustache who is frequently listed as one of New York’s top doctors. But when he’s not seeing patients, he’s a powerful political operator, one of the most prominent and well-connected lay leaders of the Orthodox Jewish community in New York.
Frager is a major fundraiser for Israeli settlements, the organizer of the popular annual Israel Day concert in Central Park and an arranger of trips to Israel for prominent conservative politicians like Mike Huckabee and Rick Perry. He’s used his perch to develop close ties with multiple members of the Trump administration, including National Security Advisor John Bolton and U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, both of whom he has described as close friends.
But according to government records, from September 2017 through February 2018, Frager was also something else: a paid agent of the nation of Qatar.
Qatar is a mega-wealthy Arab monarchy in the Persian Gulf, whose vast oil and natural gas reserves allow it to throw its weight around in international politics — to the chagrin of its neighbors like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, who don’t like Qatar’s periodic overtures to Iran. Qatar is a putative ally of the United States and hosts a key U.S. Air Force base, but it has also been criticized for its support of Hamas, the organization that has vowed to destroy Israel and is listed by the United States as a terrorist group.
The rivalries between Qatar and its neighbors have spilled over in the past year into multiple arenas, leading to Saudi Arabia and the UAE blockading its rival last year. The inter-Arab fight has led to both sides spending gargantuan sums of money on lobbying prominent Americans, including key Jewish figures, to support one side over the other — leading not only to bitter splits within the Jewish community but even eventually drawing the attention of special counsel Robert Mueller. This is the firestorm that Frager inserted himself in when he signed his Qatari contract.
Frager filed a document with the Department of Justice in April admitting that he had been paid $50,000 to “consult with Qatari officials on strengthening U.S.-Qatar relations.”
Frager’s contract was arranged by Stonington Strategies, a lobbying group under contract with the Qatari embassy that has concentrated on outreach to the Jewish community. (Nick Muzin, the owner of Stonington, announced on Wednesday that his firm was no longer representing Qatar). Several prominent Jewish advocates for Israeli policies, like lawyer Alan Dershowitz and Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice president of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, have visited Qatar since Stonington’s contract was signed.
The junkets to the country have angered many Jews and have been publicly repudiated by the Israeli government itself. “Meeting with Qatar condones murder,” celebrity rabbi Shmuley Boteach declared in a New York Times ad.

Frager’s disclosure was in accordance with the Foreign Agents Registration Act, a law that requires people who act “at the order, request, or under the direction or control” of foreign governments to disclose the nature of such arrangements and any contacts they have had with government officials and journalists. Lawyers who specialize in FARA told the Forward that they had never heard of a doctor – or indeed anyone who wasn’t a full-time lobbyist or PR professional – file a FARA disclosure.

“Having a doctor as a professional appears to be unusual, but at the same time, any person with great connections in a community for the particular purposes of a contract like this could be tapped for these objectives,” Amos Jones, a Washington, D.C. attorney who specializes in FARA, told the Forward.

Another FARA expert, who asked not to be named because he didn’t want even more people asking him to explain the law to them, told the Forward that it may be fitting that it was a gastroenterologist who filed the unusual disclosure: “FARA has given stomachaches to people.”

Frager did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

‘Joe Frager is a hero to me’

Frager, 63, was born in Philadelphia, the son of a synagogue president. He graduated undergrad from Yeshiva University in 1976 and the University of Pennsylvania’s medical school four years later. His main practice for more than 37 years has been at the Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, but he lives with his wife Karen in the Queens neighborhood of Jamaica Estates, where he’s been a longtime lay leader at Young Israel of Jamaica Estates, an Orthodox synagogue. He has been a longtime supporter of Israeli settlements, going back to working as a 19-year-old building the first fence around Ofra, one of the first West Bank communities, with only his brother to help him.

In addition to his busy medical practice, he wears many hats in the Jewish community, serving on the boards of many right-wing institutions, like the National Council of Young Israel, the hawkish umbrella group of the Young Israel synagogue movement, and American Friends of the Bet El Yeshiva Center, which raises money for institutions in that West Bank settlement, one of the largest. He’s also a frequent blogger for Israel National News, the Bet El charity’s popular right-wing news organization, and a frequent organizer of trips to Israel for right-wing pundits and politicians.

For his work, he’s been profiled in the New York Daily News and numerous local Jewish publications.

“Joe Frager is a hero to me,” New York state Assemblyman Dov Hikind, the city’s most well-known Orthodox politician, said in 2013. (Hikind’s wife is the executive director of a charity, American Friends of Ateret Cohanim, for which Frager is the chair of the executive council.)

“He should be an example to all of us that you can do whatever you do in life – be a doctor, a lawyer, or whatever else, and you can still do remarkable things for the Jewish people,” Hikind added.

Trump ties

Notably, given the interest shown in him by Qatar as a conduit to strengthen U.S.-Qatar relations, Frager has claimed close ties with several people within or close to the Trump administration, whom he could have conceivably have given the Qataris information about.

Frager has described Friedman, a member of a different Young Israel synagogue on Long Island before Trump picked him as ambassador, as a “great friend.”

Last June, a few months after he was confirmed as ambassador, Friedman appeared at an annual charity 5K organized by Frager’s synagogue to raise money for Israeli terror victims. At the race, Friedman said that he had spent time with Frager before the election. “A year ago, I was hanging out with Frager, speaking about what could be if there was a Republican president,” Friedman said. “What a difference a year makes!”

Both Frager and Friedman have served on the board of American Friends of the Bet El Yeshiva Center, which reportedly raises about $2 million a year for the settlement. Friedman once served as the organization’s president, and Frager was honored at the organization’s December 2017 annual gala as the winner of the “Shomer Eretz Yisrael” award – Guardian of the Land of Israel.

Frager is known to have met with Friedman at least once during his Qatar contract.

“Ambassador Friedman is acquainted with Dr. Frager through his efforts to support U.S.-Israel relations but has no knowledge of his alleged connection with Qatar,” a U.S. embassy spokesperson told the Forward.

Frager’s official biography at the Bet El gala said that he had “forged close friendships” with Bolton, who was named as Trump’s national security advisor in March. “Mazel tov, old friend, on your well-deserved appointment,” Frager said in a statement at the time.

Frager has interviewed Bolton for Israel National News, and Bolton has given public addresses to four institutions for which Frager was listed as the event’s organizer or honoree: Young Israel of Jamaica Estates, the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce, the Israel Day concert and the 2017 Bet El gala, when Frager won his award.

Bolton’s office did not respond to a request for comment.

Frager has also bragged about his close relationships with Fox News contributor Pete Hegseth, whom Trump reportedly considered for the Secretary of Veterans Affairs position, and Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, who was one of Trump’s first political supporters and is the father of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Frager has organized multiple trips to Israel for Huckabee and Hegseth. Both American leaders have met with Friedman on their trips.

Huckabee went on to visit Qatar in January, praising the “surprisingly beautiful, modern, and hospitable Doha,” the country’s capital.

Frager interviewed Hegseth for Israel National News at the Central Park concert on Sunday. Hegseth took the opportunity to promote his interlocutor.

“People need to know the dedication that you have to the relationship between America and Israel,” Hegseth told Frager.

Huckabee and Hegseth did not respond to requests for comment.

The Qatar connection

Qatar’s outreach to the Jewish community has been led by Nick Muzin, the owner of Stonington Strategies. Muzin, himself an Orthodox Jew and the former deputy chief of staff of Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, has been paid $300,000 per month by the Qatari embassy to “develop and implement a government relations strategy for the State of Qatar.” Half of that money is designated for subcontractors.

Zionist Organization of America president Morton Klein, who harshly criticized other Jewish leaders’ Qatar trips before embarking on his own independent journey to meet the country’s rulers, told the Forward in January that part of Qatar’s Jewish outreach strategy is based on stereotypes: “They believe like so much of the world believes that we are the most influential group when it comes to Congress.”

“They asked me to go to congressmen and talk about my trip,” he added. “They asked me to go to Congress to urge them to go to Qatar, to see how they are trying to liberalize.”

Muzin’s FARA filings show that he and many of his subcontractors, most of whom are also lobbyists, arranged meetings with members of Congress and their staffs to discuss U.S.-Qatar relations. All of this is legal, lawyers say, so long as the lobbyists marked their meetings and correspondences in their disclosures, which they appear to have done.

The briefing materials the lobbyists distributed in those meetings, which are also on file, include basic information about the country and its leadership. But they also include a printout of an op-ed for Israel National News written by Frager in November, when his Qatar contract was still in effect, criticizing the United Arab Emirates for not allowing the Israeli national anthem to be played when hosting an international judo tournament there.

The article does not mention Qatar or disclose Frager’s ties to the country. Israel National News did not respond to a request for comment.

Muzin’s efforts to bring American Jewish leaders closer to Qatar has been heavily criticized within hawkish segments of the Jewish community.

“It is sad to see American Jewish leaders bolstering anti-Semitic stereotypes by ignorantly intervening in internal conflicts that do not concern them, complex inter-Arab conflicts which are difficult to assess even as observers,” wrote Yigal Carmon of the Middle East Media Research Institute.

“In all my years of Jewish communal activism, I have never seen an effort of this scope, with this much resources, to influence the U.S. Jewish community to scrub clean the terror financing record of an Arab government,” Boteach, the prominent rabbi, told The Jerusalem Post. (Muzin has claimed that Boteach had been eager to engage with Qatar until the royal family crossed him off their invite list).

But those who have met with the Qataris tell a different story.

Rabbi Shmully Hecht, the leader of the Shabtai society at Yale University (Muzin’s alma mater), wrote in the Times of Israel that engagement is the best way to steer Qatar in a pro-Israel direction.

“Many prominent Jewish leaders have flown to Qatar and have spent quality time with the country’s leadership,” Hecht wrote. “There they have discussed their concerns, built personal relationships, and have made suggestions about how the Qataris can improve their relationship with the United States and Israel. And from what I’ve heard, the Qataris have begun to listen and engage. That’s more than can be said for many other countries in the region.”

And Klein has claimed that his conversations with Qatar’s rulers helped squash the broadcast of an Al Jazeera documentary about Israel advocacy groups, which the ZOA had described as a “viciously anti-Semitic” project. (He has since had second thoughts about the country, telling Politico on Wednesday, “I’ve lost confidence that they’re at all serious about changing.”)

Even after announcing that Stonington was no longer representing Qatar, Muzin was unapologetic. “I am proud of the work we did to foster peaceful dialogue in the Middle East, to increase Qatar’s defense and economic ties with the United States, and to expand humanitarian support of Gaza,” he wrote on Twitter.

Farley Weiss, the president of the National Council of Young Israel, told the Forward in a statement that Frager, operating independently of his organization, met “several months ago” in New York “with a member of Qatar at their request and did so to raise the issue of bringing back the bodies of Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul,” two dead Israeli soldiers whose bodies were captured by Hamas in 2014. Weiss said that the Qatari representative was meeting with other members of the Jewish community. Tablet has reported that Muzin arranged meetings in New York last September between Jewish leaders and Qataris in town for the United Nations General Assembly.

“Subsequently,” Weiss continued, “it is our understanding that Dr. Frager accepted a fee from a consulting firm for consulting work. This was a private matter and it is our understanding that Dr. Frager properly reported receipt of the income in compliance with U.S. laws.

“As can be seen by a review of our organization’s press releases and official statements, none of them had anything to do with Qatar, nor were they influenced in any way by Dr. Frager’s private actions or meetings. Dr. Frager never suggested during this time for us to take any position in relation to Qatar and has always acted professionally and with tremendous devotion to the National Council of Young Israel.”

What does $50,000 buy?

It remains unclear what exactly Frager did for Stonington as part of his work “consult[ing] with Qatari officials on strengthening US-Qatar relations” — he, Muzin and the Qatari embassy did not respond to requests for comment.

But the large payment appears to indicate significant assistance, according to Jones.

A $50,000 contract with a non-agent of a foreign principal” – that is, someone who isn’t a Qatari citizen or embassy employee – “suggests that there is considerable work on behalf of that foreign principal,” he said. “Otherwise there would be no need for that name to appear.”

The timing of Stonington’s disclosures indicates a possibly illegal discrepancy. Stonington’s biannual disclosure report says that Frager was under contract from September 2017 to February 28, 2018. But Frager only filed his own personal disclosure on April 30 – more than two months after his contract ended, and far later than the law requires.

“He needs to file within 10 days” of signing his original contract, the FARA lawyer who wished to remain anonymous told the Forward.

But, the lawyer continued, Frager will likely escape trouble with the law: “The only way to be prosecuted under FARA is ‘willful violation,’ and chances are, it wasn’t willful.”

Although some on the left and the right have called on Jewish organizations like AIPAC that lobby for Israeli interests to be forced to file under FARA as agents of the Israeli government, Jones said that there was a big difference between what activists like Frager voluntarily do for Israel and what Frager did for payment for Qatar.

“There is a very bright line between voluntary political activities of an American, and operating as an agent of a foreign principal,” Jones said. “It’s all about control. Which is almost always determined by the payment of money.”

Even if he wasn’t getting paid, the other lawyer said, Frager would have still had to register if he was acting as “an agency of the Qatari government” and was following their orders.

Unlike other Stonington contractors, Frager did not disclose contacts with American government officials or journalists on the subject of Qatar. But he was not required to disclose discussions of Qatar-adjacent issues like Hamas, or disclose Qatar-related contacts with prominent non-government figures like American Jewish leaders or Bolton (who was a private citizen until March).

“Lobbying lines can blur where there was pre-existing schmoozing,” Jones explained in a follow-up email. “It is quite often the case that official contacts had been friends of a person later hired by a foreign principal prior to the person’s eventual contracting as an agent, and/or prior to the targeted official’s ascent into an official status in which he would be influential enough to be lobbied. If, in his contact with U.S. officials, an agent were not acting on behalf of a foreign principal, a reporting requirement is probably not triggered. Even agents of foreign principals are allowed to keep ordinary friendships with people who happen to become importantly of interest to foreign principals.”

Caught in the middle of Mueller

The Jewish community is far from the only focus of Qatar’s public relations campaigns. Its desire to lift the Gulf blockade and improve its standing in the United States has led Qatari state entities to sign agreements with 25 lobbying and public relations firms, reportedly to the tune of at least $20 million.

Qatar’s efforts have to a certain extent been successful – the country’s ruler had a successful visit to the White House in April, where President Trump praised their efforts fighting terrorism and called them “a very big advocate, and we appreciate it.”

But Qatar has also been caught in Mueller’s probe of foreign interference in the 2016 election.

NBC News reported in March that Qatar had acquired evidence of improper influence by the UAE, its rival country, on presidential advisor/son-in-law Jared Kushner, but hid it from Mueller’s team in order to preserve the country’s relationship with Trump.

Additionally, one of Mueller’s focuses has been on the efforts of Elliott Broidy, a prominent Republican Jewish businessman and political donor, to influence White House foreign policy in an anti-Qatar direction – and whether he was paid to do so by a businessman tied to the UAE’s ruling family. Broidy has sued the state of Qatar and Muzin himself for allegedly hacking the emails disclosing his diplomatic efforts and leaking them to journalists.

Two of the key figures in the Mueller probe, Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn, have been charged with violating FARA, with Flynn already having pleaded guilty. Before last year, there had only been three indictments under FARA since 1966, according to the Department of Justice. The Mueller effect has led to increased compliance with the law, experts say.

“Historically, before the campaign of 2016 and back to 2014, we did not have a lot of this activity being registered, though it should have been,” Jones said. “There’s heightened sensitivity and more compliance than I’ve ever seen in my entire career, thanks to the notoriety of the prosecutions under it.”

Jones said that Frager filing his FARA disclosure in accordance with the law was ultimately a good thing.

“The whole purpose is transparency,” Jones said. “The policy behind FARA is, yes, lobbying will happen. The key is for the American people to know when it comes to foreign influences, who’s pulling the strings.”

 

False Flag

COMMENTARY: Alert – The “Iranian 9/11″ War Ploy (+ Trump’s Speech And Xi’s Fate)

There is no doubt that a war or a major event has already been planned, which will help the tribe make some drastic moves towards the New World Order. It’s becoming very difficult to trust media that we used to trust. As we move closer to this ‘major event’ things will get even more confusing. That is the idea. They know some of us are aware of the plan, but they insist on distracting us. The following analysis of current events is very interesting and, even though the expecting timing could change, what is predicted, looks quite plausible. 

False Flag

“ALERT: The “Iranian 9/11″ War Ploy (+ Trump’s speech and Xi’s fate),” Source redefininggod.com

[Note: 11 October 2017 – Will North Korea’s threatened nuke test over the Pacific be done with a short-range SCUD missile? Will “hackers” release details of Xi Jinping’s overseas money stashes to undermine him before the Party Congress? Will the “Deep State’s ‘Iranian’ false flag” take the form of a missile attack on Al Udeid Air Base (in Qatar) launched from Yemen (supposedly using one or more Soumar ground-launched cruise missiles)? More on this in the morning…] [Update 2 – 12 October 2017] – Trump’s speech and Xi’s fate

News came out last night that Trump’s Iran speech will be postponed until tomorrow…

…from CBS News

Does this mean that Friday the 13th has been abandoned as a potential strike date, or do they want the provocation and the strike to occur on the same day? More likely it’s the former. But I will not stop my overwatch of the situation tomorrow. Since the Chinese Communist Party Congress will start on the 18th and continue for a week, I’ll keep going until it’s over. If the globalists miss the opportunity to replace Xi with Li Keqiang at the Congress, it will be a satisfying frustration of their efforts.

Speaking of this replacement, I was noodling last night over what the globalists could do in such a short period of time to justify Xi’s departure from leadership. I concluded that they’d have to hit him with a double-barreled shotgun blast: 1) a catastrophic loss of face on the international stage and 2) a major ethics scandal at home.

To provide the international loss of face, having Kim Jong Un detonate a hydrogen bomb off the coast of China would be a start. Following it up with a quick, catastrophic Chinese military engagement would be a nice finish.

To provide the major domestic scandal, a credible charge of gross corruption would do nicely. The easiest way to achieve this would be a detailed online data dump on his secret financial holdings. After running so many other Party officials out of office on corruption charges, such a revelation would make him look like a huge crook and hypocrite.

Will the Party Congress allow a crook who has humiliated China on the global stage to lead the nation?

More details on these scenarios and the “Iranian” false-flag in the morning…

[Update 1 – 11 October 2017] – Maintaining the Trump Illusion

Will Trump “fall for the Deep State trap” tomorrow?…


…from CNBC/Reuters

By expanding the Mideast war using the method outlined in this entry, the globalists will leave Trump’s phony Anti-Establishment image intact. This is how the controlled alt-media will explain what happened…

“Since Trump refused to allow the Pentagon to attack Russia and its allies in Syria, the Deep State decided to trick him into war. They convinced him to take the seemingly low-risk actions of decertifying the nuclear deal and declaring the Revolutionary Guard as terrorists in order to put pressure on the Iranian ballistic missile program. He was told that these measures wouldn’t cause any real harm because Congress wouldn’t pass new sanctions.

Little did Trump know, though, that the Deep State would use Iran’s rhetorical threats of a ‘crushing response’ as cover for launching a false flag against our own troops. And once he and the public believed Iran had attacked our boys in uniform, his hands were tied. He was compelled to unleash the Pentagon to do what it wanted.”

The speech on Iran is supposed to happen tomorrow, so let’s see if they have the balls to go through with it. If they do, keep an eye on Ukraine also. They’ll probably launch an offensive “to retake Crimea” once the US and Russia go head-to-head in Syria. And if the globalists hope to fulfill their goal of replacing Xi Jinping at the Chinese Communist Party Congress next week, something dramatic will have to happen in the North Korea / South China Sea area too. Will we go from zero-to-sh*tstorm in the next few days, or will they retreat yet again?

NOW HERE’S THE BEGINNING OF THIS ENTRY>>>

The globalists are attempting to escalate the Middle East war as early as Friday the 13th. This is the outline of their plan…

1) Have the neocon-neolib-zionist deep state pressure Trump into decertifying the Iran nuclear deal and declaring the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist group. This is currently scheduled to happen on Thursday the 12th.

2) Have the Iranians make war threats to deter Trump’s action. This has already occurred…

…from Google News

3) Use the war threats as cover for a “deep state” false-flag targeting Americans (to be blamed on Iran). This attack could come as early as Friday the 13th, and it will most likely target American military forces (Gulf of Tonkin-style). Israeli involvement will later be uncovered.

4) Retaliate against the “terror attack” by striking the Iranians, probably with Israeli military support, in Syria and other places.

So why would they do this, you ask? If you’ve been watching the news, you may have noticed the tsunami of articles proclaiming Putin’s imminent victory in Syria and his reshaping of the entire Mideast. Here is just one example…

…from The Spectator

According to the globalist script, which is playing the “good guy” East against the “bad guy” West in order to set up the New World Order, this means the Western/Israeli bad guys plan for Syria and the rest of the Mideast is on life support. So the only way to save it is to move beyond the proxy war and go head-to-head against Syria, Iran, and Russia. An “Iranian terror attack on Americans” will do nicely to get it started.

We must also watch for concurrent escalations vis-a-vis North Korea, so I’ll append my previous entry to the bottom of this one. I will be monitoring the situation from this alert entry for the remainder of the week.

By the way, keep an eye on Incirlik Air Base in Turkey. At some point, the globalists will want to bring the American nukes there into play. Under one of their contingency plans, Erdogan is scripted to seize control of them and turn Damascus into “a ruinous heap.”

[Note: Keep in mind that there is a new US-Turkey diplomatic confrontation that could escalate into the Incirlik nuke scenario, and Turkish forces have entered Syria’s Idlib Province during the last 24 hours. So if the globalists proceed with their plan, Syrian, Russian, and Iranian forces in Syria could face a Turkish offensive from the north, a US-Kurdish offensive from the east, and an Israeli offensive from the south. Putin is scripted to be the ultimate victor, though.]

Zero Hedge and the Hazardous Week of October 9 – 13, 2017

Zero Hedge is one of the leading faux-truther / controlled-opposition propaganda sites on the Web. And judging by the elephant walk of NWO propaganda that paraded across their front page yesterday, this could be an eventful week.

First, there are the Trump threats to North Korea…


top article link, bottom article link

So Trump is saying that this is the “calm before the storm” and that force is the only thing that will work with North Korea. And he’s doing this just days after the CIA forecast that Kim will stage a provocation on Columbus Day…


…from US News

And all this is happening at the same time as this…


…from The Wall Street Journal. As I warned in a previous entry

If the official story of the shooting is allowed to fall apart quickly and dramatically, it could set the stage for an imminent war with North Korea. The faux-truthers will say, “The deep state took us to war with North Korea to distract people away from discovering their role in the Las Vegas Massacre.”

Simultaneously, the Russians continue to expose the “deep state’s” connection to ISIS terror…

…from Zero Hedge

So with the “deep state’s” involvement in the Las Vegas shooting going viral, with their backing of ISIS threatening to go viral, and with the crossover between the two stories (ISIS’s claim that the attack was one of theirs), the rationale for flipping the script with a new North Korea crisis is established.

What we have with all these reports is theater for the masses, and it’s the type of show that can lead into the globalist-planned Washington / New York sneak attack I’ve been warning about. But how will they get it going?

On the North Korean side, they supposedly have multiple ICBMs in launch position. So they could either fire off one per day this week, or we could see them fire four at the waters around Guam. And there’s a good chance one of them will be a “full test package” that results in a thermonuclear explosion over the Pacific. This would then trigger Trump’s response and Trump’s response would trigger the sneak attack.

On the American side, keep an eye out for Trump to stage a provocation by forcibly boarding and seizing North Korean merchant ships. The recent news about North Korean rocket launchers headed for Egypt may serve as his justification for doing so. See the September 20 postscript (which is near the top) of this entry for more background information on this scenario.

The 9th, 11th and 13th are the most dangerous days of this hazardous week. And if you see the UN Security Council calling an “emergency meeting” on North Korea, that’s a good day to get out of Manhattan and Washington, DC.

Beyond this teasing of war provocations, a number of other NWO themes were presented yesterday. I’ll cover those as the day goes on.

~ Continued 1 ~

Two other NWO themes that were touched upon yesterday by Zero Hedge were the “people’s revolution” theme and the “smaller units” of government theme…


top article link, bottom article link

The globalists abandoned their first attempt to start people’s revolutions in the EU back in 2015. They intended to use “the birthplace of democracy,” Greece, as the starting point. The Greeks were meant to defect from the overbearing EU to the “freedom-fighting” BRICS, and that model would have then spread among the EU peripheral states until it destroyed the EU in 2016. Now it appears that they’ve substituted Catalonia for Greece and are trying it again.

The people’s revolution that will dismantle the EU is part of the globalists’ broader strategy of breaking large nations into less self-sufficient pieces. Since the smaller nations will lack the capacity to maintain a modern standard of living and a strong national defense on their own, they will become dependent on the globalists’ multilateral institutions for their prosperity and security.

You can read more about the globalists’ plans for revolution and smaller units of government in Globalist Agenda Watch 2015: Update 19 – The Greek “People’s Revolution” and the New European Renaissance, brought to you by the NWO.

~ Continued 2 ~

Another notable article I saw on Zero Hedge’s front page yesterday was this propaganda piece out of Moscow…

article link

It talks about the ongoing changes in the Middle East in terms of the NWO’s phony narrative of opposing “multipolar” and “unipolar” forces. And it is part of the overall media effort to portray Vladimir Putin as having “masterfully outmaneuvered” the West in the Middle East. Just have a look at the barrage of articles on the subject…

…from Google News

Vladimir Putin is the globalists’ chosen leader of the New World Order system, and they are doing everything possible to set him up as “the Prince of Peace” and “the most geopolitically brilliant statesman of this age.” Read Understanding the NWO Strategy to inoculate yourself against these clumsy attempts to build his cult of personality and narrate a battle between the “evil West” and the “benevolent East.” The “Unipolar World Order” is the globalists’ Left Hand and the “Multipolar World Order” is their Right Hand, and they are using Both Hands to build the NWO.

Much love…

 

[P.S. 10 October 2017] – This week is also dangerous on account of what the US will do to Iran. Read this alert for details…

This is how you set up true democracy…

1) I take responsibility to reach out to the neighbors on my street or in my apartment building, and I’ll set up a time and place where we all can meet weekly to discuss our concerns and hopes. Only a few might show up at first, but if I keep notifying everyone of the time and place of the weekly meeting, more will show up when things start getting rough. And at times of real crisis, ALL will likely come. This will be the beginning of my block council.

After I set up my block council, I’ll reach out to everyone I know and encourage them to do the same where they live. I’ll also take responsibility to reach out, face-to-face, to the people on the next block until I recruit an organizer who will get their block together. In this way, the community-building will spread.

2) Once block councils form, each one can elect a representative to meet with the representatives of the neighboring block councils. They can then discuss the concerns and hopes of the people on their blocks. Ideas will be shared and consensus will start to form. This will be the beginning of the community council.

3) Once community councils form, each one can elect a representative to meet with the representatives of the neighboring community councils. They can then discuss the concerns and hopes of the people of their communities. Ideas will be shared and consensus will start to form. This will be the beginning of the local council.

4) Once local councils form, each one can elect a representative to meet with the representatives of the neighboring local councils. They can then discuss the concerns and hopes of the people of their localities. Ideas will be shared and consensus will start to form. This will be the beginning of the area council.

5) Once area councils form, each one can elect a representative to meet with the representatives of the neighboring area councils. They can then discuss the concerns and hopes of the people of their areas. Ideas will be shared and consensus will start to form. This will be the beginning of the regional council.

6) Once regional councils form, each one can elect a representative to meet with the representatives of the other regional councils. They can then discuss the concerns and hopes of the people of their regions. Ideas will be shared and consensus will start to form. This will be the beginning of the global council.

This simple process of individuals talking to their neighbors to form a community, and those communities reaching out to form broader communities, can cover the entire global population in just these seven steps:

1) Asserting individual sovereignty.
2) Forming block councils.
3) Forming community councils.
4) Forming local councils.
5) Forming area councils.
6) Forming regional councils.
7) Forming a global council.

And each council at each level would need no more than 70 people, and this allows everyone at each level to know each other well. It also allows the voice of every single person to truly matter.

With this seven-tired council structure, the entire population of the Earth, if it were evenly distributed, could be represented by councils no larger than 45 people…

individual (1) x block (45) x community (45) x local (45) x area (45) x regional (45) x global (45) = total people (8.3 billion)

Since populations in different regions (and different blocks) can vary, though, the sizes of the councils at each level would vary. For instance, populous nations such as India and China, if treated as regions, would need councils of up to 70 people…

individual (1) x block (70) x community (70) x local (70) x area (70) x regional (70) = total people (1.68 billion)

And the United States, if treated as a region, would need councils of about 50 to cover the entire population…

individual (1) x block (50) x community (50) x local (50) x area (50) x regional (50) = total people (312.5 million)

As I expand and enhance this article, I’ll explain the very simple rules that would make this system work, and I’ll go into the many benefits it offers. I call this system of government “fractal democracy,” and it is based on the concepts of personal human relationships, anti-hierarchy, decentralization of power, and self-organizing collectivization. It is a way that humanity can cooperate and unite on a global level without the need for artificial states or a troublesome ruling elite.

It’s also as simple as the boogers in your nose, and it has to be that simple in order for people to actually understand it and do it.

Till later, much love….

While everyone was distracted by the NFL shenanigans and the fireworks show in Vegas, North Korea has reportedly moved multiple ICBMs into firing position. So we could see the globalists restart the war provocation spiral at any time, and the Vegas shooting could potentially play into it.

Regardless of whether the Las Vegas shooting was real or crisis-acted, it’s quite predictable where they’re going with it. The controlled alt-media will claim it is yet another mass shooting orchestrated by the neoliberals of the “deep state” to push through gun control measures, and it will be interesting to see how far the globalists allow them to go in picking apart the official story.

If the official story of the shooting is allowed to fall apart quickly and dramatically, it could set the stage for an imminent war with North Korea. The faux-truthers will say, “The deep state took us to war with North Korea to distract people away from discovering their role in the Las Vegas Massacre.”

So one scripted fireworks show could lead to a much larger one. Friday the 13th is just 9 days away.

Qatar

COMMENTARY: The Qatar/Gulf Crisis Explained

So who is behind all this mess again? Israel. The Trump family is deep up their necks with Israel and will not stop till we go to war with Iran. That is the end goal here, besides taking all the oil from the Middle East while destroying all Arab countries. Qatar is a piece of the puzzle and these moves, show us how dirty these people play.

In reality, like any other geopolitical bombshell there may be one specific incident that sparks the powder keg,… but there are a number of different factors that compel each of the players at the table to act for their own interests.

So what does a geopolitical bombshell look like, exactly? Well, something like what took place this past week in the Gulf. Namely:

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.), Bahrain, Egypt, Mauritania, Yemen, and the Bayda-based so-called “eastern” government in Libya (and Maldives, don’t forget Maldives!) all cut diplomatic ties with Qatar this week.

The governments of Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Egypt, and Bahrain have ordered all Qatari citizens out of their respective countries within the next two weeks.

Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Egypt, and Bahrain have also banned all sea and air travel to and from Qatar, with Saudi Arabia shutting down the embattled states’ only land border.

The U.A.E. has made it illegal for any of its citizens to even voice support for Qatar, punishing offenders with hefty fines and up to 15 years in jail.

Egypt is trying to get the U.N. to investigate Qatar for a 2015 incident where the Qataris allegedly paid $1 billion to a terrorist group in Iraq to free 26 hostages, including members of the Qatari royal family.

Egypt issued a 10-point ultimatum with a 24-hour deadline calling on the Qataris to sever diplomatic relations with Iran, expel members of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, close down Al Jazeera and end support for terrorist organizations, among other items.

Turkey’s parliament, meanwhile, has fast-tracked legislation allowing troops to be deployed to a Turkish base in Qatar in an apparent show of solidarity with its regional ally.

That, my friends, is a geopolitical bombshell.

Now, as out-of-the-blue as all this might appear to casual observers of the region, it is important to put these events into the larger historical context of tense relations between the State of Qatar and its Arab neighbors. Saudi Arabia, U.A.E., and Egypt had a months-long diplomatic dispute with the Qataris just three years ago that involved the withdrawal of those countries’ ambassadors from Doha over its support of the Muslim Brotherhood and other non-Saudi-approved extremists. And Saudi Arabia has closed Qatar’s land border during upheavals in the past.

But still, this particular dust-up is clearly an order of magnitude above previous tiffs and is magnified by the precarious nature of a region already on the knife edge in so many ways.

So the obvious question is why? What line was crossed that necessitated a reaction like this? And why now?

The official position, expressed in the avalanche of official notices announcing the cutting of diplomatic ties on Monday, blamed Qatar for  destabilizing the governments of its Gulf neighbors, manipulation of public opinion via its Al Jazeera mouthpiece,  supporting terrorists, financing groups linked to Iran, denying previous commitments, and “disregarding the principles of good neighborliness” (yes, that’s a thing in international law).

Of course, these are nothing but vague generalities and pot-calling-kettle-black level hypocrisy, and absolutely no one (MSM, think tank, independent media or assorted others) are taking these statements at face values.

But still, there has to be something more to this story than just long-simmering tensions over Qatari support for various groups that the Saudis are not fond of. And there certainly is “something more” here, or, to be more precise, several things more.

So what is this bombshell really about?

Well, it isn’t hard to see why there’d be some resentment of Qatar amongst its Arab “allies”(?) in the region. When Gaddafi’s compound in Libya fell during the 2011 decimation of that country, it was a Qatari flag that was flown over the bombed out building. Al Jazeera has not only been blamed for helping to incite the so-called “Arab spring,” their own personalities brag about it openly, pointing to the ouster of Mubarak in Egypt as an example of how the Qatari network has helped shape the region. And support for Iran? It was a report about the Qatari emir criticizing the other Gulf states and speaking in defense of Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood that was the immediate cause of this latest brouhaha in the first place.

As an incredible phantasmagoric sidenote to the main kerfuffle, the story of that alleged report about the Qatari emir’s comments is a whopper. Long story short: The report appeared on QNA (the Qatari News Agency) and was pulled down within half an hour. The Qatari foreign ministry issued a statement that the report was a fabrication planted on the QNA site by hackers. Can you guess how long it took before the FBI (yes, the US’ Federal Bureau of Investigations) turned this highly unlikely cover story into a chance to blame “Russian hacker” boogeymen?

And Saudi Arabia has not been shy about its own bid to become the dominant player in the region, not only using the infamous, infinitely meme-able orb-opening of its Riyadh-based “Center for Combating Extremism” and $100 billion+ US arms deal/bribe as a way to ensure it remains in the regional driver’s seat in the coming years, but flexing its fledgling military muscle by massacring Yemen (with US backing) and floating various versions of a Saudi-dominated “Islamic Military Alliance” (or maybe an “Arab NATO“?) with Iran and its defenders firmly in its crosshairs.

Another intriguing reason for why this is all coming to a head right now presents itself in the form of collusion between a close associate of Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner and a neocon think tank. Specifically, leaked emails from the U.A.E. Ambassador to Washington, Yousef Al Otaiba (who, it must be noted, is “in almost constant phone and email contact” with Kushner) reveal that Otaiba has engaged in a year-long campaign to discredit Qatar in the U.S. He has received support in this campaign from The Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), a group of neocons who lobby extensively for Israeli “security” matters in Washington. The foundation is very close to Bibi Netanyahu himself and boasts members like John Hannah, a former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney. The FDD hosts events by the likes of former Defense Secretary Robert Gates and has received funding from GOP kingmaker and staunch Zionist Sheldon Adelson. The leaked emails show how Otaiba coordinates and disseminates anti-Qatari talking points with FDD associates and others of influence in Washington circles.

In his article on the drama in the Gulf this week, Pepe Escobar observes that both the U.A.E. and the Saudis are angling to position themselves near the top of the heap in what could be a Trump-approved, Washington-backed, Riyadh-led anti-Iran alliance. As Escobar notes, “Unlike Qatar, the House of Saud and the UAE are one step away from establishing diplomatic relations with Israel – the sine qua non-condition imposed by Washington to insert Israel in an anti-Iran Arab NATO guided by Riyadh.”

In reality, like any other geopolitical bombshell, there may be one specific incident that sparks the powder keg (like the mysterious “hacked”(?) QNA report), but there are a number of different factors that compel each of the players at the table to act for their own interests.

Perhaps the most important question is where this is all headed. Some are speculating that this is heading toward military confrontation. Given that Qatar is currently host to the largest US military base in the Middle East, coupled with the fact that NATO-member Turkey is sending troops in an overt display of military support, this is almost unthinkable in the short term. But it is a dramatic move by the Saudi-led faction to remove Qatar from the table and plant itself firmly in the center of a Gulf alliance against Iran. Given that Qatar’s power primarily comes from its immense petroleum wealth and its ability to influence events in the region through Al Jazeera, it is unclear what Qatar can do to regain any semblance of an upper hand. Closing down surrounding air space and preventing the thousands of trucks that supply the country with food and goods on a daily basis from crossing the Saudi land border puts Qatar at an extreme disadvantage in this situation.

And meanwhile, Iran looks on from afar, surely sensing that it is the ultimate long-term target of all this maneuvering.

ISIS

COMMENTARY: This Is The Real Story Behind The Economic Crisis Unfolding In Qatar

The real purpose behind everything that is happening in the Middle East is to destroy the area, convert it into proxy states which will be ruled by Israel, spread terror so they can take away our freedom under the excuse that they are doing it to ‘protect us’, steal the oil in the area and continue with the drug trade. That is the real story behind all this mayhem. ISIS is a Mossad creation and the tribe has been able to infiltrate the different governments who claim to be ‘fighting’ against ISIS.

ISIS

The Qatar crisis proves two things: the continued infantilization of the Arab states, and the total collapse of the Sunni Muslim unity supposedly created by Donald Trump’s preposterous attendance at the Saudi summit two weeks ago.

After promising to fight to the death against Shia Iranian “terror,” Saudi Arabia and its closest chums have now ganged up on one of the wealthiest of their neighbors, Qatar, for being a fountainhead of “terror”. Only Shakespeare’s plays could come close to describing such treachery. Shakespeare’s comedies, of course.

For, truly, there is something vastly fantastical about this charade. Qatar’s citizens have certainly contributed to Isis. But so have Saudi Arabia’s citizens.

No Qataris flew the 9/11 planes into New York and Washington. All but four of the 19 killers were Saudi. Bin Laden was not a Qatari. He was a Saudi.

But Bin Laden favored Qatar’s al-Jazeera channel with his personal broadcasts, and it was al-Jazeera who tried to give spurious morality to the al-Qaeda/Jabhat al-Nusrah desperadoes of Syria by allowing their leader hours of free airtime to explain what a moderate, peace-loving group they all were.

Saudi Arabia cuts ties with Qatar over terror links

First, let’s just get rid of the hysterically funny bits of this story. I see that Yemen is breaking air links with Qatar. Quite a shock for the poor Qatari Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, since Yemen – under constant bombardment by his former Saudi and Emirati chums – doesn’t have a single serviceable airliner left with which to create, let alone break, an air link.

The Maldives have also broken relations with Qatar. To be sure, this has nothing to do with the recent promise of a Saudi five-year loan facility of $300m to the Maldives, the proposal of a Saudi property company to invest $100m in a family resort in the Maldives and a promise by Saudi Islamic scholars to spend $100,000 on 10 “world class” mosques in the Maldives.

And let us not mention the rather large number of Isis and other Islamist cultists who arrived to fight for Isis in Iraq and Syria from – well, the Maldives.

Now the Qatari Emir hasn’t enough troops to defend his little country should the Saudis decide to request that he ask their army to enter Qatar to restore stability – as the Saudis persuaded the King of Bahrain to do back in 2011. But Sheikh Tamim no doubt hopes that the massive US military air base in Qatar will deter such Saudi generosity.

When I asked his father, Sheikh Hamad (later uncharitably deposed by Tamim) why he didn’t kick the Americans out of Qatar, he replied: “Because if I did, my Arab brothers would invade me.”

Like father, like son, I suppose. God Bless America.

All this started – so we are supposed to believe – with an alleged hacking of the Qatar News Agency, which produced some uncomplimentary but distressingly truthful remarks by Qatar’s Emir about the need to maintain a relationship with Iran.

Qatar denied the veracity of the story. The Saudis decided it was true and broadcast the contents on their own normally staid (and immensely boring) state television network. The upstart Emir, so went the message, had gone too far this time. The Saudis decided policy in the Gulf, not minuscule Qatar. Wasn’t that what Donald Trump’s visit proved?

But the Saudis had other problems to worry about. Kuwait, far from cutting relations with Qatar, is now acting as a peacemaker between Qatar and the Saudis and Emiratis. The emirate of Dubai is quite close to Iran, has tens of thousands of Iranian expatriates, and is hardly following Abu Dhabi’s example of anti-Qatari wrath.

Oman was even staging joint naval maneuvers with Iran a couple of months ago. Pakistan long ago declined to send its army to help the Saudis in Yemen, because the Saudis asked for only Sunni and no Shia soldiers; the Pakistani army was understandably outraged to realize that Saudi Arabia was trying to sectarianize its military personnel.

Pakistan’s former army commander, General Raheel Sharif, is rumored to be on the brink of resigning as head of the Saudi-sponsored Muslim alliance to fight “terror”.

Five things to know about Qatar’s first 2022 World Cup stadium

President-Field Marshal al-Sissi of Egypt has been roaring against Qatar for its support of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood – and Qatar does indeed support the now-banned group which Sissi falsely claims is part of Isis – but significantly Egypt, though the recipient of Saudi millions, also does not intend to supply its own troops to bolster the Saudis in its catastrophic Yemen war.

Besides, Sissi needs his Egyptian soldiers at home to fight off Isis attacks and maintain, along with Israel, the siege of the Palestinian Gaza Strip.

But if we look a bit further down the road, it’s not difficult to see what really worries the Saudis. Qatar also maintains quiet links with the Assad regime. It helped secure the release of Syrian Christian nuns in Jabhat al-Nusrah hands and has helped release Lebanese soldiers from Isis hands in western Syria. When the nuns emerged from captivity, they thanked both Bashar al-Assad and Qatar.

And there are growing suspicions in the Gulf that Qatar has much larger ambitions: to fund the rebuilding of post-war Syria. Even if Assad remained as president, Syria’s debt to Qatar would place the nation under Qatari economic control.

And this would give tiny Qatar two golden rewards. It would give it a land empire to match its al-Jazeera media empire. And it would extend its largesse to the Syrian territories, which many oil companies would like to use as a pipeline route from the Gulf to Europe via Turkey, or via tankers from the Syrian port of Lattakia.

For Europeans, such a route would reduce the chances of Russian oil blackmail, and make sea-going oil routes less vulnerable if vessels did not have to move through the Gulf of Hormuz.

So rich pickings for Qatar – or for Saudi Arabia, of course, if the assumptions about US power of the two emirs, Hamad and Tamim, prove worthless. A Saudi military force in Qatar would allow Riyadh to gobble up all the liquid gas in the emirate.

But surely the peace-loving “anti-terror” Saudis – let’s forget the head-chopping for a moment – would never contemplate such a fate for an Arab brother.

So let’s hope that for the moment, the routes of Qatar Airways are the only parts of the Qatari body politics to get chopped off.
