The Morning Report 3/12/24

Good morning, kids. As horrendous as the abject disasters of American foreign policy during the Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants and Obama years are, they are sadly not limited to their time on top of the dung heap of their creation. The ideologically-driven incompetence, or incompetent ideology is the product of several generations of navel-gazing ivory tower eggheads whose self-inflating egomania sees American exceptionalism, as embodied in our forefathers and forebears who conceived and actually built this country, as the root cause of the world’s problems, especially post 1945. 

A glittering jewel of this insanity is a woman by the name of Victoria Nuland. After several decades at Foggy Bottom, she has decided to hang up her cat o’nine tails, leaving behind a slime trail of deceit, corruption and tragically, mounds of dead bodies including a few thousand American servicemen as a result of her and her compatriots desire to shove the world into a globalist meat grinder.

Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland is retiring. It’s not certain to me whether she’s being pushed out of the Biden [junta] because she will be a convenient scapegoat for Ukraine’s imminent defeat or whether she is frustrated that she has not yet provoked a nuclear war with Russia – but that is a moot point really. 

She has wreaked her damage.

Over the decades, the sunny-faced state department staffer grew darker and heavier in every sense of the word. She not only spoke about war like it was merely diplomacy by other means, she began to look like she enjoyed the prospect of men and women dying on the battlefield. . . 

. . . We are literally watching the hatching of the Third World War on two fronts – Ukraine and the Middle East – because Biden refuses to talk to Russian President Vladimir Putin; because Biden won’t consider peace when there are armaments to ship to Ukraine; and because [so-called quote-unquote “president”] Joe Biden has absolutely no idea what kind of settlement he would like to broker between Israel and its growing number of adversaries.

Diplomacy is dead under the demented and dilapidated Biden largely because people like Nuland have been dictating an aggressive foreign policy that seeks war at every opportunity and doesn’t seem to even contemplate the possibility or wisdom of peace. American presidents could sit down with the worst despots that Soviet tyranny offered but Biden won’t even pick up the phone and chat with Putin – the man with his finger on the largest nuclear arsenal in the world and who is talking about using it if NATO continues to expand and comes closer by the day to deploying troops and to directly engaging with Russia in Ukraine. . . 

. . . Under Nuland’s blessing and direction began the endless martial odyssey of Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and just about any real estate where another U.S. military base could be constructed. 

As long as Americans were being killed in foreign lands and coming home in body bags or in pieces, Nuland could pretend that this somehow represented American global hegemony or at least the ascendancy of American ideals. 

Nuland always appeared so cocky, so sure of herself and her mission of permaconflict that she evolved into an exquisitely literal picture of government arrogance. 

Remember how she essentially revealed to the world that the United States was going to blow up the Nord Stream 2 pipeline on Jan. 27, 2022? . . . Did she retire because she knows Ukraine will soon lose a war with Russia that could have been ended with a peace treaty that Biden and NATO did not want? Yes, it might be a tad difficult to argue at the end of this carnage that at least 300,000 Ukrainians might have died but just remember what a glorious opportunity this war was for the defense contractors. 

While David Krayden’s defenestration of this bloated pig’s record of blood and tears is thorough, I am surprised he omitted Nuland’s complicity in what has come to be known as “color revolution.” That is, America’s penchant for overthrowing duly elected foreign governments because they don’t align with our foreign policy interests. One can reasonably make the case that removing Marxists and fools like Salvador Allende or Mohammad Mosaddegh was and is a good thing. The problem is is that our own government is now chock full of the same kind of communists and tyrants that we used to remove, who now have a hard-on to crush governments and movements that are anti-globalist and nationalist in nature (I no longer consider the word nationalist as an epithet).

Looking at the two-year bloodbath that is Ukraine, one of the reasons for Putin’s invasion – regardless of his own record of brutality and oppression – was the overthrow of a duly elected pro-Russian government back in 2014 and the installation of a regime that was more in line with that of the American administration at that time, led by none other than the mutt-eating mutt Barack Obama. And one of the key architects of that act of direct interference in the affairs of a foreign government was none other than Victoria Nuland.

NOTE: The link and pull quote are from a far-left site called Truthout. Total Marxist psychos, but despite their Tourette’s spouting of “neo-con” (as an anti-Jewish epithet) in every other sentence, the reportage about Nuland and her role in the 2014 overthrow of Viktor Yanukovych is spot on. So I link it here for lack of being able to find a more normal source in time:

Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs “Toria” Nuland was the “mastermind” behind the Feb. 22, 2014 “regime change” in Ukraine, plotting the overthrow of the democratically elected government of President Viktor Yanukovych while convincing the ever-gullible US mainstream media that the coup wasn’t really a coup but a victory for “democracy.”

Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs Victoria Nuland, who pushed for the Ukraine coup and helped pick the post-coup leaders.

To sell this latest neocon-driven “regime change” to the American people, the ugliness of the coup-makers had to be systematically airbrushed, particularly the key role of neo-Nazis and other ultra-nationalists from the Right Sektor. For the US-organized propaganda campaign to work, the coup-makers had to wear white hats, not brown shirts. . .

. . . Much of what has happened, of course, was predictable and indeed was predicted, but neocon Nuland couldn’t resist the temptation to pull off a “regime change” that she could call her own. Her husband (and arch-neocon) Robert Kagan had co-founded the Project for the New American Century in 1998 around a demand for “regime change” in Iraq, a project that was accomplished in 2003 with President George W. Bush’s invasion. . . In Ukraine, Nuland and her neocon and liberal-interventionist friends saw the chance to poke Putin in the eye by encouraging violent protests to overthrow Russia-friendly President Yanukovych and put in place a new regime hostile to Moscow.

It’s not that Nuland manipulated the media into publishing anti-Yanukovych propaganda. They likely worked directly and eagerly to do so, knowing full well that what they were printing was total bullshit. And the State Department works hand in hand with the CIA. And we all know what happens when propagandist media, the CIA, DOJ and the entire bureaucracy join forces. They rig elections and/or overthrow legitimately elected popular governments that are antithetical to their goals. Hello Trump and 2020. Hell, they openly crowed about it in that Molly Ball essay in Time Magazine.

And now, here we are in 2024, and after America as founded and those of us fighting to restore even a scrap of the Constitutional republic that was, Foggy Bottom’s greatest enemy is the State of Israel. Forget the embarrassment of not being able to help Ukraine defeat Putin. While that would be a black mark for Victoria Nuland, perhaps she is about to engineer a swan song and go out on a high note. For her, not the world.

U.S. intelligence agencies are claiming that they “expect” protests to bring down the Israeli government and replace Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been an obstacle to President Joe Biden’s plans for the Middle East.

The claim emerged in the latest “Annual Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Community,” and was published by both the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times Monday evening, suggesting a coordinated leak to the media.Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has publicly stated his opposition to postwar diplomacy with the Palestinian Authority (PA) toward territorial compromise.Netanyahu’s viability as leader as well as his governing coalition of far-right and ultraorthodox parties that pursued hardline policies on Palestinian and security issues may be in jeopardy. Distrust of Netanyahu’s ability to rule has deepened and broadened across the public from its already high levels before the war, and we expect large protests demanding his resignation and new elections. A different, more moderate government is a possibility.

. . . Many observers have long suspected the Biden [junta] of working to bring down the Netanyahu government through a “color revolution.” A State Department-funded group was at the core of opposition to Netanyahu’s judicial reform, and then-Ambassador Tom Nides was described as the “arsonist-in-chief,” as he openly supported the Israeli opposition movement and the protests. President Biden also froze Netanyahu out, refusing to meet him for months.

Polls suggest that the vast majority of Israelis support Netanyahu’s positions — opposing a Palestinian state; backing the continuation of the war until Hamas’s complete defeat; and preparing for possible war against Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon. Polls also indicate that the vast majority of Americans support Netanyahu’s approach to the war — and oppose Biden’s approach, which has sought to appease terror and dissenting left-wing and Muslim-American voters.

You might recall that Obama directly interfered with Israeli elections in a failed attempt to oust Bibi back in 2015. Along with Kenya, Macedonia, Libya, Honduras, Egypt, and of course the United States of America in 2016.

Bibi Netanyahu and now a vast swathe of the Israeli populace now understand that while in times before Obama, American politicians were perhaps at worst misguided in their attempts to solve the unsolvable problem of a Muslim world that seeks to wipe out Israel and all Jews. Now, it is obvious for all who have eyes to see that this government in DC seeks exactly that. And that is why Bibi and company are openly defying Biden and will likely go all the way (RIP Eric Carmen) in its attempt to wipe out Hamas.

That of course cannot stand. Not with an election in November where the hardcore Marxist Democrat base is up in arms and Donald Trump might well do the impossible and actually overcome rigged elections and kangaroo courts and return to DC. 

I imagine Bibi understands this and is prepared to deal with what Nuland, Foggy Bottom, Langley and Kalorama might hurl at him. Yet again.
