Anti Judo

Faked Out,

This article from Oriental Review starts out as Trump-plays-5D-chess, which we see sometimes, but it is worth going just a bit farther, because there is a lot to corroborate the view that Rump is something like a political Houdini, holding his breath and making a lot of weird movements, which actually break the imperial system. They figure he has found a way to coordinate with Putin to bring down the relocated-since-WW-2 UK global financial empire, fought previously by Presidents Jackson and Lincoln.
It's quite lovely, if even half true.

Judo master, known for his conservative pronouncements...
Vladimir Putin: "The Dollar Enjoyed Great Trust Around The World. But For Some Reason It Is Being Used As A Political Weapon, Imposing Restrictions. Many Countries Are Now Turning Away From The Dollar As A Reserve Currency. US Dollar Will Collapse Soon."

Bolivia’s Self-Declared 'Interim President' Believes Indians Are 'Satanic,' Shouldn’t Be Allowed in Cities
"I dream of a #Bolivia free of Indigenous satanic rites, the city is not for 'Indians,' they better go to the highlands or El Chaco," Senator @JeanineAnez said on her Twitter account about her country where more than 65% of the population is Indigenous.  

​Paul Craig Roberts:
​ ​Jeanine Anez, one of the Bolivian Spanish elite, has declared herself the President of Bolivia. She is one of the elite allied with Washington who accused Evo Morales of rigging his reelection. But the CIA’s Bolivian lackeys who forced Morales to resign his presidency don’t bother with elections. They just declare themselves president like Juan Guaido, the CIA creep in Venezuela, who hoped to unseat Maduro, the elected president, by declaring himself president. Neither Anez nor Guaido ran for the office. They just self-appointed themselves president. The organization of American States, a CIA front organization, accepted the unelected presidents as rightful rulers. President Trump declared the CIA coup to be an increase in freedom and democracy.
​ ​As Trump approves of the attempted coup against Venezuela’s Maduro and the successful coup against Bolivia’s Morales, how can he complain about the CIA/DNC ongoing coup against him?
Live by the sword and die by the sword.


​Evo Morales is the only legal President of Bolivia, even if one disputes his re-election. His term is not over. These people know they are facing fascist dictators now. This story from "the beeb".
​ ​The death toll in Bolivia continues to rise after violent clashes between security forces and supporters of former President Evo Morales.
​ ​On Friday, security forces opened fire on supporters of Mr Morales in Sacaba, killing at least eight people.
A doctor in the city told the Associated Press that most of those killed and injured had bullet wounds.
The country's national ombudsman said a total of 19 people had died since the disputed election on 20 October.

N​ext generation of journalists is taught which side the bread gets buttered on. Thanks Helen.
​ A renowned journalism school’s paper recently apologized for ‘traumatizing’ students by posting photos of their participation in a public protest. Is protecting people from the consequences of their actions now the media’s duty?
​ ​The purpose of journalism is “comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable,” according to a quote frequently attributed to newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst. At Northwestern University – home to a renowned journalism school – the profession’s task seems to be comforting the comfortable, while belittling the afflicted.
​ ​University paper The Daily Northwestern printed a fulsome apology for “contributing to the harm students experienced” as they protested an appearance by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions at a campus College Republicans event. The nature of that harm? Reporters assigned to cover the event photographed the protesters and posted the photos on social media – a breathtakingly normal act of journalism that they realized only afterwards was “retraumatizing and invasive,” according to the apology.
​ ​The obsequious screed apparently took eight people to write, including the paper’s “Diversity and Inclusion Chair.”

​The empire has more where she came from...
WikiLeaks lawyer Jen Robinson said Lady Emma Arbuthnot, the judge presiding over Julian Assange’s extradition proceedings who is embroiled in a conflict of interest, will no longer be sitting on the case.

​The French majority is dispossessed, those outside of the cities. Gilets Jaunes one year on.​
​ ​The 2017 election was supposed to be a watershed moment. France had rejected populism and had instead embraced a new centrist politics. Emmanuel Macron was held up as a liberalising reformer, an adept technocrat and a popular anti-populist. The former Rothschild banker was to be the saviour of France and of the EU. The Economist, the bible of liberal centrists, celebrated his election victory by depicting him as a modern-day Jesus: literally walking on water.
​ ​But beneath the headlines, disenchantment with the political class was clear. Some 10million people expressed their anger by voting for Marine Le Pen, the leader of the far-right Front National (re-named National Rally in 2018). According to IPSOS polling, the only socioeconomic category to back Le Pen over Macron was blue-collar workers. Among voters who said they found it ‘very difficult’ to cope financially at their current income level, 69 per cent voted for Le Pen.
​ ​Though many voters might have relished giving the establishment a bloody nose, clearly Le Pen’s unpalatable politics was not a price worth paying. Abstentionism was perhaps a more acceptable outlet for voters’ frustrations. In the second round of the presidential election, there was a record three million votes blancs (expressing a preference for neither candidate). The legislative elections that followed had the lowest turnout in the history of the Fifth Republic.
It took the emergence of the gilets jaunes to galvanise members of forgotten France. Around the time of the first yellow-vest protests, just 25 per cent of French voters said they approved of President Macron. In contrast, 73 per cent told pollsters they supported the gilets jaunes.


​RT has story and some illustrative video clips:
A shopping mall and several bus stops were vandalized when the protesters vented their anger over what they deem as government inaction towards their demands, made throughout a full year of weekly demonstrations.
