Contradictions

"Conspiracies Pushed by Atlantic’s Editor Excluded From Atlantic’s Denunciation of Conspiracy Theories".  I'm still wondering whether the new ownership has policies on employing concentration camp guards.

"Bomb threat suspect in Israel offered services on dark web - U.S. authorities".  This seems to be an effort to make him look less Mossad.

"Turkey bombs Tel Abyad border gate after visit of US delegation to northern Syria".  Aiming at Americans.

"The Kurdish Connection: Israel, ISIS And U.S. Efforts To Destabilize Iran".  "The Kurds: Washington’s Weapon Of Mass Destabilization In The Middle East".  This is Iranian propaganda, but there is quite a bit of truth in it.  There are strong contradictions in Kurdish nationalism, largely directed through Zionist influence.  The good news is that the Turks are going to force the Syrian Kurds to choose wisely.

"CALM DOWN: We're not even close to nuclear war with North Korea".  We're still in the sweet spot where angry rhetoric serves all sides better than war.

"The Real Reason Washington is Worried about North Korea".  The deterrence of being able to strike back against an illegal American attack, something that Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, etc., etc., etc., all, sadly, lacked.  Escobar:  "Pyongyang’s nuclear arsenal represents the deterrent against regime change that Saddam Hussein and Gaddafi could not count on."

"Krieger Asks: Is Google A Search Engine Or 'Deep State' Organ?".  From Assange's book.  The oddly quick firing of Damore is pure identity-politics virtue signalling that it remains firmly in the neoliberal camp.

"Trump deportations lag behind Obama levels".

"#FireMcMaster, explained".  This is odd:  "Fire McMaster" (Raimondo).  "An NSC Staffer Is Forced Out Over a Controversial Memo".  "Ex-Breitbart staffer booted from National Security Council as far-right nationalists lose influence". Contradictions within both Zionism and Bannonism are being clarified by Trumpism.

"These two developments are part of a larger battle between McMaster and Bannon, who fundamentally disagree on a number of key issues, including at least two with a direct connection to Israel: the re-location of the American embassy to Jerusalem (Bannon supported the idea, McMaster and the NSC warned against it), and the Iran nuclear deal, which Bannon and his supporters pushed the president to scrap, against the advice of McMaster and other senior administration officials who urged Trump to keep it. For the time being, McMaster has won both battles."

The main contradictions of Bannonism (which perhaps should be called Mercerism), which will keep popping up, are that 1) Bannon pretends to be a MAGA isolationist while maintaining a warmongering attitude towards both China and Iran (but not Russia as it is thought to be a 'white'/Christian outpost of civilization), and 2) his extreme anti-immigration stance, which could be MAGA (in a twisted way), is tainted with a strong irrational Islamophobia which comes right out of the extremes of the alt-right, and of course is fostered with considerable effort and money by Zionists like Gaffney.

"What We Talk About When We Talk About Gorka".  The contradictions are moving The Tablet in some hilarious directions.  See also, the e-x-t-r-e-m-e-l-y clarifying:  "Is the ACLU Still Committed to Free Speech?".

"Secretive search for man behind Trump dossier reveals tension in Russia inquiry".  This represents part of the potential backfire on the Clintonistas of Russiagate, leading directly to discussion of Ukrainian efforts to influence the American election result.  See:  "Watchdog Files Complaint Against DNC For Colluding With Ukraine During The Election".

"German Bombshell Bestseller Exposing CIA Media Control Blocked in US".  Ulfkotte's name keeps popping up, just below the radar.  It is useful to have a reasonable explanation for why the German government seems so hell bent on policies against the interests of the German people.

"Newsbud Exclusive- Israel’s Mossad Replaces CIA as Handler of Libyan Strongman Khalifa Haftar".  Very tenuous sourcing here, and Haftar remains very enigmatic.

"Yemeni mercenaries fight and die to protect Saudi border".

""None Of It Was True": 103 Years Later, The FT Admits It Lied And Colluded With The Bank of England".

Maradona has always been a good guy.
