“Iran Must Begin Acting Like A Normal Nation,” Says Totally Normal Nation

The government which runs a globe-spanning empire led by a reality TV host keeps talking about the lack of normality in the nation of Iran.

“What we want all countries to join in,” said State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus in a recent Fox News interview, “is to help us not only to de-escalate any tensions with Iran, but to help us bring Iran to a place where they are ready to stop their terrorist and malign behavior, and where they are ready to discuss with the United States, with Europe, with everyone, about how they can change their behavior to act like a normal nation.”

“We want Iran to simply behave like a normal nation,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a press statement the other day. “We believe that the sanctions we imposed today further that strategic objective.”

These would be the additional sanctions which have been expanded to include virtually the entire Iranian economy, deliberately targeting Iran’s already sanction-starved populace, with the explicit goal of fomenting a civil war in that nation.

Which is of course a perfectly normal thing to do, from a perfectly normal nation.

This would be the same Iran whose cultural heritage sites were threatened with destruction if it retaliated for the totally normal assassination of its top military official via flying robot. The same Iran whose financial system was just threatened with destruction using the totally normal hegemony of American central banking. Perfectly normal, perfectly healthy.

So what can Iran do to become a “normal nation”? Well, since it’s the United States making this demand, we can safely assume that it’s the model Iran should look to.

In order to become a normal nation, Iran will need to expand its interests from the region and begin toppling noncompliant governments and invading nations all around the world.

In order to become a normal nation, Iran will need to circle the planet with hundreds of Iranian military bases.

In order to become a normal nation, Iran will need to obtain thousands of nuclear weapons, and actually use a couple of them.

In order to become a normal nation, Iran will need to become the most dominant military, economic and cultural force in the world, and then use that dominance to destroy any government, political party, ideology, faction, movement or person who stands in its way.

In order to become a normal nation, Iran will need to arm violent extremist factions all around the world with the goal of eliminating all governments that refuse to bow to its interests.

In order to become a normal nation, Iran will need to become the dominant producer of films, music and TV shows and use this influence to propagandize its power structure’s ideology to every possible cultural sphere.

In order to become a normal nation, Iran will need to begin meddling in scores of democratic elections all around the world and then crying for years at the possibility of any nation returning the favor.

In order to become a normal nation, Iran will need to shore up economic control of the world so that it can crush any sort of disobedience by starving civilians and depriving them of medical care while pretending that it’s a force for peace.

In order to become a normal nation, Iran will need to indefinitely occupy a vast region on the other side of the planet with thousands upon thousands of troops and trillions of dollars in military equipment, to no benefit of a single ordinary Iranian, and against the will of the people who live there.

In order to become a normal nation, Iran will need to create a presidency led by a reality TV star oligarch who is only supported because Iran’s populace is so disgusted with the status quo of their government.

I am kidding, of course. The US government does not want Iran to become like the US. The US government does not want any nation to become like the US. The US likes its abnormality among nations just the way it is, thank you very much. The US is the exception to all its own rules. That’s how American exceptionalism works. This is one of those “do as I say, not as I do” situations.

The US doesn’t want Iran to be like America. The US wants Iran to be like the other nations which have allowed themselves to be absorbed into the blob of the US-centralized empire.

The US would be perfectly happy for Iran to begin acting like Saudi Arabia: arming terrorist factions, beheading heretics, committing war crimes and deliberately creating humanitarian disasters for geostrategic convenience, yet aligning fully with US military, financial, and resource control agendas.

The US would be perfectly happy for Iran to begin acting like Israel: a nuclear-armed military outpost which constantly bombs adjacent nations, interferes in the US and other nations’ politics to shore up support, works toward the slow extermination of its indigenous population and fires upon protesters with live ammunition.

The US would be perfectly happy for Iran to begin acting like Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand or the EU: obedient military/intelligence assets who function as extra American states when it comes to foreign policy and international affairs.

That is what the US means by acting “normal”. Not acting moral. Not acting healthy. Certainly not acting like the US. It means acting obedient, compliant, and enslaved.

Which is precisely what Iran is resisting.

  • Some people don’t seem to know the difference between a “nation” and a “government”.

  • WSWS: YouTube, Facebook and Twitter remove accounts and content opposing the illegal assassination of Iranian General Suleimani


  • NO Puppet Goverment can act normally if it is controlled by the clergy. Just think back in history about all the “holy” wars.

  • normal? do they mean be like the United States? hmm out of the 193 countries recognized by the UN,. the US has intervened, attacked and injected itself into 190 out of the 193 countries,. that’s a staggering 98.5% of ALL COUNTRIES ON THE PLANET.. The THREE countries that haven’t been a victim of the US, are Andorra, Bhutan, and Lichtenstein..
    So by that metric, Iran must attack, intervene and interject it’s military into 190 countries to become “NORMAL”

  • The Tulsi Gabbard campaign is claiming, in a fund-raising email, that they have a poll showing them only 3 pts behind Warren in New Hampshire. Wouldn’t it be something if the American people backed an anti-war candidate? It would not be a shock, as the last two presidents both won by claiming to be against the wars. Its the antiwar position that keeps getting the support of voters. Who knows, if we keep trying maybe eventually we’ll elect one that isn’t lying.

    • Many years ago in Australia we had a popular minister of foreign affairs who was anti-war. Henry Kissinger popped over for an overnight visit. Australia was back on the warpath again.

  • How can I contact Caitlin? There is an important area of research which the dynasty of elite European rulers and their paid agents have been working for millennia to hide and keep out of focus for the general population. They did that by means of assassinations, destroying ancient historical records, misrepresenting history and trying to hide evidence and facts about a bold and influential leader who started leading a revolutionary movement nearly 2000 years ago. His novel and brilliant strategy was aimed at precipitating a global socio-economic and political crisis which will culminate in the formation of a new and much better world order. The worldview and philosophy of life which inspired and guided that revolutionary movement is potentially devastating to the status quo. In fact, when first taught, accepted and practiced among supporters of the revolution, the rulers and their agents acted quickly to arrest, torture and execute the leaders and intimidate their supporters into abandoning their commitment to the movement. Instead the movement went underground. The Liberator’s unique and brilliant strategy for leading a revolution and defeating the rulers of this civilization and their agents was encrypted in His lectures, parables and records compiled by His followers who proclaimed Him as God’s Chosen One, destined to become King of kings and Ruler of the earth. The illustrious title “Ruler of the earth” is premature but nevertheless fitting for a man of His calibre, intelligence, wisdom and empathy.

    After the movement went underground, the rulers sent their agents as spies to infiltrate among supporters of the revolution. The spies were smart academics, commissioned to influence, coerce and mislead. They identified the key leaders, had them secretly arrested and executed and then the academics usurped the authority of those original leaders, hijacked the movement and brainwashed the remaining naïve, intimidated and confused supporters. This brainwashing and coercion succeeded and concluded with the formation of the Roman Catholic Church in alliance with the so-called “Holy Roman Empire.” The revolution was almost defeated by those sinister tactics but not completely and there’s much more to this story!

  • This comment from the Duran to expound on US normality:

    Comment: [“Yanks…time has come for you folks to go home and stay home. You have created enough mayhem all over the globe. You’ve got more than enough that needs cleaning up in your own backyard.”]

    Reply: [“No kidding! The US is worse now than it was four years ago.

    In 2016, as another presidential election approached, Americans were able to claim the following distinctions:

    • One in six were taking prescription psychiatric drugs such as antidepressants or anti-anxiety meds.

    • More than 16 million adults and more than 3 million adolescents were suffering from significant depression.

    • More than 1.9 million Americans were regularly using cocaine, with a half million hooked on heroin and 700,000 on methamphetamine.

    • That year opioid overdoses killed 46,000, a new record.

    • Binge drinking had reached epidemic proportions, with one in six US adults binge drinking several times a month and consuming seven drinks per binge; according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, bingeing was especially common among younger and more affluent Americans.

    • Nearly 45,000 were taking their own lives annually, the national suicide rate increased by 24% since 1999; within the previous decade the suicide rate of teenage girls had doubled and of boys had jumped by 40%.

    • Smartphone addiction was joining more traditional compulsions, with the average person checking their smartphone 110 times a day, impelled by Fomo – a fear of missing out.

    • Compulsive-buying syndrome, AKA shopping addiction, afflicted an estimated 6% of the population; a comparable number were compulsive hoarders.

    • On a daily basis, 11 million Americans, mostly women, struggled with eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, while roughly 40% of adults and nearly 19% of children and adolescents were obese.

    • Cosmetic surgeons were performing more than 17m procedures annually, with buttock augmentation and labiaplasty enjoying a particular spike in popularity.

    • Forty-million Americans were regularly visiting online porn sites.

    • The number of Americans infected with sexually transmitted diseases in 2016 surpassed 2 million, according to the CDC, “the highest number ever”.

    • An estimated 24.7 million children were growing up in fatherless households, with such children substantially more likely to drop out of school, abuse drugs and alcohol and kill
    themselves; girls raised without a father present were four times more likely to get pregnant as teenagers.

    • Although difficult to quantify with precision, 676,000 American children in 2016 were victims of abuse or neglect.

    • Exercising their right to choose, American women were terminating around 650,000 unwanted pregnancies each year, despite the widespread availability of contraceptives.

    • Exercising their right to bear arms, Americans had accumulated more than 40% of the planet’s small arms; the US arsenal in private hands was larger than that of the next 25 countries combined.

    • Meanwhile, more than 33,000 Americans were being killed in firearms-related incidents annually.

    • Year in and year out, the US had the world’s highest incarceration rate, no other developed nation coming anywhere close.

    •Polling data showed that social trust – how Americans felt about government institutions and their fellow citizens – had sunk to an all-time low. Perhaps for that reason, when it came to voting, most Americans couldn’t be bothered; voter turnout in the US lagged behind that of most other developed countries.

    • In an increasingly networked society, with two-thirds of Americans on Facebook, chronic loneliness afflicted a large portion of the population.

    • In a phenomenon described as “deaths by despair”, the life expectancy of white working-class American males was dropping, a trend without historical precedent.

    • The nation’s birthrate had fallen below the rate needed to sustain a stable overall population; America had ceased to reproduce itself.

    • Not to be overlooked, in their pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness, Americans were polluting, wasting food and generating trash with abandon, leading the world in each category.

    So, yes, the one trillion plus dollars spent annually on smashing up other countries would be better spent on cleaning up the mess in its own backyard (and I don’t mean Latin America!).

    • That is a tragic description of what can happen when a once great nation falls into zombified complacency. Their education system has failed miserably (or succeeded, depending on which way you look at it) so I doubt whether there are enough people in the USA who are capable of challenging and bringing down the status quo.
      Other than complete disintegration, the only hope is for a massive spiritual awakening to occur. By spiritual I do not mean religious. Religions are filters that have been placed between each individual person and the Creator. These filters are now completely choked up with detritus. The whole of society needs to become enlightened and do no evil. Obeying the ten commandments would be a good start. Thou shalt not kill is a pretty good rule and it means though shalt not kill ANY of God’s creatures. Having dead corpses in one’s intestines is probably not going to help if enlightenment is desired.

      • A large part of this campaign over the last 50 years has been constant attacks on public education and teachers. We’ve once had a public education system where money was not to be the obstacle to getting to college. Now we’ve got a system of charter schools and expensive colleges that create a lifetime of debt. A century ago, America knew that public education was a foundation stone of a real democracy, so for the last 50 years education has been under attack. Its not a coincidence.

  • Iran needs to step up & distribute bump stocks for there country & western music festivals

  • You forgot to mention how the totally normal nation applied totally normal sanctions to Iraq, resulting in the totally normal deaths of over 500,000 children, and then announced that it was worth it, just like any totally normal person would have.

    • Just what is the criteria for becoming Secretary of State? I can think of some who while in office exhibited a disregard and contempt for human life makes the Roman Emperors seem like quite nice chaps.

  • Well done Caitlin. Nobody does righteous indignation like you.

  • LOL. Now the Trump regime is threatening China with serious economic sanctions if they don’t stop purchasing Iranian oil, as though Trump is China’s dad and determines who all their friends and trading partners can be.

    Time for China to start imposing reciprocal sanctions on the running dogs and paper tigers of Mordor, Inc. And I don’t mean putting an embargo on fortune cookies, but more like the critical missile parts and other electronics absolutely essential to the US war machine which China supplies. You remember, the deals that Slick Willie initiated decades ago. Shit, America wouldn’t even be self-sufficient in rubber bands or paper clips if it came to a crunch.

  • Almost from its beginning, the CIA established an assassination program, which included the preparation of an assassination manual. The manual trained CIA personnel in the art of assassination and, equally important, in ways to prevent people from recognizing the assassination as being state-sponsored. Making killings look like accidents was one of the methods in which CIA assassins would be trained. Please read this article here:

  • In order to be a normal nation, Iran needs to build a lot of jails because they’ll need to imprison a higher percentage of their own people than anyone else on earth.

    I suppose at least in one way, Iran is already a normal nation, as they are also one of a short list of nations who execute people.

    • Why not run with the trope? If I were the King of Iran, I would suggest that _all_ nations should act like a ‘normal’ nation, and propose a world conference to make specific and explicit what a ‘normal nation’ is supposed to act like. It would, of course, immediately become a propaganda orgy, but still, something interesting might come out of it.

    • You need to quit harping on the number of people in our jails. Look instead at the number of people executed. If we executed everyone in our jails that are executed for similar crimes in Iran, Malaysia and Thailand we would have alot less people in our jails.

      • A normal nation executes people for being black.

        • Not everything is about race. Oh wait, that is a racist microaggression to say that. Oh well, screw free speech.

  • Raise World Empathy!
    Support and protect empathy whenever you come across it, as if it were a precious and beautiful flower. 🙂

  • Behind the rhetoric, there is nothing that the ruling elites of both countries want than to deescalate things:


    Ruling elites want everything to stay the same because this world of lies serves them perfectly by maintaining a statu quo giving them power, money and social status and maintaining other people miserable and under their control.

    Watch for all the volcanoes currently waking up. It seems that a global natural disaster is coming.

    We are in the days of Noah just before the Second Coming of Jesus and I pray the Rosary to hasten His Glorious return because I have seen enough bullshit.

    • I’d imagine that the more intelligent of the American elites know they walk a fine line. That they want tensions and crisis to drain more and more money into ‘defense’ and ‘spies’ and ‘police’. The massive state welfare programs in such areas feed many fat cats. But, nobody, not even an elite oligarch, benefits from global nuclear war. They won’t sell many smart phones and apps after nuclear winter arrives, and that Rembrandt in the vault will be worth less than a sack of potatoes in a starving world.

  • It’s a very sad commentary on the state of world affairs in general, and the consciousness of the western population in particular, that this article and others like it should even be necessary. But as Cait has often pointed out, the most effective propaganda is that which is delivered to those who don’t know they are being, and have always been, propagandized.

    • Back when I used to let CNN into my home, I used to argue with them on some items that I was reasonably educated and knowledgeable about. But, what was really scary was the way that CNN could implant thoughts on areas where I didn’t shout back at the TV.
      I’d shout back at the silly notion that Saddam was building nuclear bombs in his basement, but then some day down the line I’d say something about some completely different topic. Only to listen to myself and think that this was not me, that I’d said something on a specific issue that went completely against my core values. I’d try to trace back just why in the heck I would say such a thing, and the trail would lead back to some story on CNN. It was the stuff where I wasn’t directly arguing with the tv set that was the most dangerous.

  • Brilliant article! Hopefully readers here will post this on their Facebook pages. This needs to go viral. Corporate news hacks need to read it to understand what they should have been saying but lacked the courage. https://www.facebook.com/larry.payne.3348

  • Caitlin, you have captured the “Do as I say, not as I do” US foreign policy perfectly. There is nothing more to say, nothing to add. For anyone who has any doubts about how US foreign policy operates, just read this post. No more words need to expended. What does need to be figured out, however, is how to beat back the imperial beast, since the US has such a tight, seemingly impenetrable stranglehold and has the flexibility and power to withstand relatively minor challenges to its totalizing hegemony–economic, militarily, and culturally. In the “Iron Heel” Jack London wrote in this marvelous fictional work about the eventual liberation of humankind that it would take 7 centuries to finally defeat the oligarchy. I am not sure we have the luxury to wait that long.

  • Unfortunately, the US is a normal nation. Throughout history, the Sociopaths In Charge of all nations are exactly as despotic, destructive, inhumane, murderous, etc. as their resources allow. The US currently has the most resources, so they are exhibiting the most insanity. Those resources are on the verge of catastrophic failure. That failure will have dramatic effects world wide, since a huge slice of the world economies are dependent on that of the US. Let us pray we don’t get irradiated to death as they fall. If we survive, the world may become more rational, as there won’t be any gang of Sociopaths In Charge with enough resources to dominate the world. It won’t be a pleasant transition, but hopefully a beneficial one. Perhaps we will learn to govern ourselves instead of allowing monsters to govern us.

  • The premise of this article is flawed.

    The administration never said the USA was a normal nation. Quite the opposite, in order to hold elected office in the USA, you must firmly believe, with every fiber of your being, that the USA is The One Exceptional Nation.

    This requirement is even in the US Constitution, er, i dunno, prob somewhere near the end…

  • I wrote this to a dear Iranian friend: I am so sorry all this is happening to your country. The US acts like Iran is a little pipsqueak, totally oblivious that it is a great civilization, an elder among the humanities of the world, whereas the U.S. is just a young male in puberty with uncontrollable hormones.

  • Well said. Spot on.

  • Caitlin. Very good article. America is like Britain in the 19th century. Once the Sterling no longer dominated the world currency their empire fell. It was replaced by the dollar and subsequently American empire. History tells us the dollar must fall from reserve status before the empire collapses.

  • I guess “normal nation” is the new rhetoric for what they used to call “political moderates” like Saudi Arabia.

  • If a country, say Argentina, or South Africa was militarily so powerful than the US then would it be behaving exactly as the US now? I do not know! I wish the answer was ‘No’ but fear the answer is ‘Yes’. Look at Iran itself – it obviously exercises some influence on its neighbours (this is the sole purpose of the Quads whose chief was Soleimani): they support the Houti rebels in Yemen, has proxies in Irak and Syria. So they do behave like a ‘normal’ country however within their capabilities. This by no means excuses the killing of Soleimani – hell no.
    But if we assume the Iran leadership is of the same sociopathic nature as the US’s then it really could be that Rouhani coluded with US for the killing of Soleimani:
    1. Rouhani got rid of the most popular person in Iran, ergo he shaked off the most potent rival. Iran is a totalitarian state by all means so they do have their game of thrones version playing out at some level.
    2. The killing of Soleimani stopped the popular unrest in Iran and the population flocked around the leadership – definitely positive for Rohani.
    Not saying this really happened, but it is possible. This changes nothing about the US involvement there, but we should allow for this possibility. Rivals making shadowy deals while acting as enemies is by no means a new thing. This will continue to be so until we stop embracing representatives to decide on our behalf. In a direct democracy the sociopaths will be a minority and shit like wars will become much more rare.

    • The answer is in your own question: in order for a country to get as militarily as the US it would have to behave exactly as the US is now. Or even worse. It’s the same with the mafia; if you want to be as bad as the mafia you have to behave as bad as the mafia.

      • Well behaving like the US by no means ensure that you will also get there. My point is that the incentives for such a behavior are borne in the representative democracy we have now. More so the totalitarian states, but in my view both are uncomfortably similar.

  • Narcissism is normal in the US government

    • And all the others. They are all Sociopaths, at the extreme end of narcissism.

  • “The number of people killed by the uninterrupted series of wars, coups d’État and other subversive operations executed by the United States from the end of the War in 1945 until now — a number estimated at 20 to 30 million victims.”

  • Mike Pompeo to Iran: “We want you to become a normal nation.”

    The catch is that “normal” is defined by Crazytown, USA (aka Washington DC).

  • Caitlin and Tim, bravo!
    What I have found difficult to cope with, day after day after day for the last 54 years of my adult life is that no matter how horrible the US government behaves abroad, and no matter how obvious that horrible behavior is, as you have so astutely pointed out, absolutely NOTHING changes. There was a chance for change in the mid 1970s, but it never reached fruition. Since then the horror that is the US has not only gone on and on, but it has gotten worse and worse. For example, relatively recently (to an old fart like me, anyway), The Global War ON Terror soon turned into The Global War OF Terror by the now-greatest terrorist nation on planet earth.
    Do you want to experience some serious “mixed feelings”? Whenever the “normal” US does something particularly horrible, like bombing a wedding, a hospital or destroying a city, or killing a leader of a nation whose only “crime” was trying to improve the lives of his people, imagine some outside force doing the exact same thing to a large US hospital, city, wedding party or leader (for example of the latter, the one with the big orange head and Mussolini-like facial expressions and rage-inducing demeanor). We have already seen what the US has done to the world ever since some planes flew into a couple of buildings in NYC, killing almost three thousand people. Imagine what the US would do to the world should that hypothetical role-reversal happen. See what I mean by “mixed feelings”?
    The shocking reality is that something horrible is probably going to have to befall the US in order to finally stop it from doing to the world what it has been doing for a very, very long time.
    FDR died on April 12, 1945. Adolf Hitler died on April 30, 1945. In other words, FDR died before knowing with absolute certainty that Germany and Japan would be defeated. Nor did he ever know that the atomic bomb would actually explode, let alone that it would be dropped on two Japanese cities by a stupid, bible-kissing successor. As I approach the end of my life in the near future, I debate in my head whether or not I want to witness “the end” of the US empire, knowinng full well that the process of that end, and almost certainly its aftermath, might very well be a living nightmare the likes of which I have been lucky enough to avoid my entire life. Again, “mixed feelings”. Luckily, I have no choice in the matter.

  • War of the Hominids
    > I recently read Michael Bradley’s 4th essay [Chapter 4] of Esau’s Empire [http://www.peuplesawa.com/downloads/460.pdf]. Bradley, a Canadian anthropologist who passed in 2017, was a prolific writer with 20 published books, several writing awards, an honorary PhD and is listed in Canada’s Who’s Who since 1993. Interestingly enough, there is no Wikipedia entry–do a Google search and there’s virtually nothing. As an anthropologist, Bradley took note of the Semitic monotheistic religions [Judaism, Christianity and Islam] and the continued presence of a no-nonsense monotheistic God, who has never relinquished control—very much an anomaly in most of humanity’s creator scenarios. In brief– the Neanderthal demonstrated [The Neanderthals, Dr. Erik Trinkaus, Univ of New Mexico] specific traits, as follows: High aggression and very tight group cohesion [control or elimination of other], psychosexual ambivalence [anti-feminine], sexual dimorphism and numerical competency, high brow and nasal construction, short legs and long torso, and unusually hairy body. Bradley opined that the greater preponderance of aggression for the Neanderthal may have resulted from an interbreeding [Homo habilis] with Ethiopia’s fierce Gelada Baboon—known to have collectively attacked native villages.
    > Back in the day–several human sub-species of Hominids walked the earth–with most of them disappearing into the evolutionary ether–leaving two dominant [Homo] human sub-species: The Neanderthal and the Cro-Magnon [Homo Sapiens]. The Neanderthals appeared on the scene some 200,000 years ago with the more modern Cro-magnon [allegedly a sea faring group] showing-up approximately 40,000 years ago. The Neanderthals began to diminish in numbers approximately 35,000 years ago with Cro-magnon becoming the undisputed dominant species–approximately 15,000 years ago. The “disappearance” of the neanderthal has not been fully understood–while it is assumed that they were either eliminated by Cro-magnon, interbred with Cro-magnon to the point of obscurity or simply died-off due to maladaptive survival skills.
    > Bradley [a Jew] was considered an anti-Semitic because he claimed that the Jews of Middle East seemed to have the preponderance of Neanderthal traits. His Caucasus Middle East region contains the whole of the Middle East and extends into Central Asia. In May of 2010, an anthropologist from Harvard produced an article in “Science” which increased the percentage of the human population with Neanderthal DNA from 1 to 4% to 6%. Six-percent of 7 billion people is approx 420,000 people world-wide–while most live in the Caucasus Middle East– with population percentages in certain regions as high as 70% Neanderthal. In should be noted that there are many nationalities included within the region–to include the Arabs. Bradley referred to those living specifically the Middle East as Neanderthal-Semitic people and concluded that: “70% of the present crisis on this planet can be fairly attributed to the machinations of the Neanderthal-Semitic elements of the human population against the Cro-Magnon majority of the human population.”
    > Someone from an email group sent the following web site link in reference to the Soleimani killing: [http://redefininggod.com/]. The fellow who owns this site is either a deep state agent, is using AI or he is just one hell of a researcher and dot-connector [go thru his linear dissertations and look at his predictions dating back to 2018] who predicted: Soleimani martyrdom, digital technologies for control and acquisition [Cyrus Parsa’s 12/16/19 lawsuit] and the rise of Tulsi Gabbard–as prescient examples. In Islamic eschatology, the end of history culminates with the coming of the Imam AL-madhi [the Prince], the false messiah [ad-dajjal] and the true Messiah [Jesus]. Ken suggests that Neanderthals-Semitics are preparing for the apocalyptic end [return of the Messiah] and must initiate the Tribulation to effect the 1000 years of peace. He is also suggesting that the Imam-to-be [Soleimani] may have been replaced with a double [2 hour delay on his flight schedule] and is now “occulted”, as Islam eschatology requires [savior of Islam and humanity].
    > Bradley suggested that there is an inter-species conflict taking place between Islam and Judaism–with the US called in to support the Israeli side of the conflict. Once the neanderthal inter-species conflict is “resolved” the Neanderthal-Semitic tribes then collectively reassert the attack against the real enemy– the Cro-Magnon [aka Gentile]. What I find most interesting about the site is that the owner [Ken] believes that the deep state controls both sides of the conflict [surprise, surprise]. Both Ken and Bradley imply that every one is on the same apocalyptic script–with the end game–the one government NWO–controlled by the Deep State. Dave Janda, a well respected blogger who seems to be very well connected with insiders within the US government, recently suggested [https://beforeitsnews.com/war-and-conflict/2020/01/president-trump-takes-the-gloves-off-great-dr-dave-janda-video-2472305.html] that Soleimani was the primary Middle East deep-state operative [so who’s the deep state?].
    > So where am I going with all of this–I’m suggesting that we [the USofA] are being pulled into an inter-species conflict which once “resolved” then becomes our conflict–in other words we [Homo Sapiens] are being set-up by the Neanderthal-Semitic tribes–both Arabs and the Jews. I further postulate—that the Soleimani “martydom” may have been as much about drawing in the Gentile, as it is about Israel setting a score with an historical inter-species rival—that the Arabs/Islam must, ultimately, be in league with Israel–against the Cro-magnon [Gentile]–with Christ’s people–the Palestinians–serving as the sacrificial Arab lambs.
    > So what do we do in the midst of this apocalyptic eschatological operation that ends with the Tribulation and the Prince of Peace [the Neanderthal narrative]? I say we get in front of it and stop it before we vanquish the planet and all of biological life. Undoubtedly, there are many traitors in the building, those who are part of the Deep State agenda, and it’s ultimate End Game: A significant reduction in human population and complete digital control of those who remain [https://theaiorganization.com/google-facebook-neuralink-sued-for-weaponized-ai-tech-transfer-complicity-to-genocide-in-china-and-endangering-humanity-with-misuse-of-ai/].
    > I say we deal with the traitors first. Alexander Solzhenitsyn describes– in his yet to be officially translated-to-English book, “200 Years Together” [http://www.renegadetribune.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Solzhenitsyn-200-Years-Together-Encrypted.pdf]–how he and his fellow Gulag prisoners dealt with the internment camp’s informants—who were making life in the camps unbearable. They [the informants] were subsequently identified and brutally eliminated—which greatly improved the lot for those white Christians– imprisoned by the feral Bolsheviks—eventually leading to the break-up of the camps and the release of the “revolution’s” prisoners.
    > I don’t know where the “Orange Jew” fits into this scenario—but will say that Trump’s “decision” to take-out Soleimani [whether real of imagined] was a stupid mistake [he may have had a gun to his head] opening up– both he and the American people to Neanderthal-Semitic retribution. As I and others have said—this is not just about Israel and Iran—this is about Neanderthal-Semitic’s singular vengeful G-d—and America’s ensuing Bolshevik Devolution: This is a battle between real cave dwellers–and may the best informed Hominid win.

    • Wild speculation! I attribute the aggression and inability to integrate or at least cooperate with other tribes to something more simple and recent. The practice of circumcision is a primal, pre verbal betrayal of trust that often results in hyper aggressive, narcissistic personality traits. Alternatively, some may manifest this betrayal by those who should protect the tender babe in more submissive ways, but still be driven to psychological problems. It probably served a positive, survival function in the distant past, but has deadly and global consequences now.

      • Yes I’m sure such a barbaric betrayal of trust so soon after being born has given rise to a plethora of emotional problems.
        In some cultures the circumcision takes place when a boy is about to enter manhood, so at least the boy knows what is going on.

  • The whole scene is bizarre – here in Australia straight-faced national ABC news readers speaking of a few hundred shouty-faces apparently in Teheran and supportive – how more bizarre – of the murderous rogue US Trump regime! As if shouting for the entire nation – a tragic shoot-down of a passenger ‘plane which would never have happened had Trump not just prior murdered an important figure hen threatened to blow up 52 key sites right across fabulous historic Iran. Trump is one truly responsible and should of course turn himself in to the International Court in The Hague – though like all noisy twittery cowards – he will not. Caitlin, along with ElkoJohn I say, brava, bravissima!

    • …murdered an important figure then threatened…

    • The Australian public broadcaster does create some very good programs however their international news coverage is a mouthpiece for the warmongers. I personally lost all faith in the ABC when once during the lead up to an election I heard the phrase “..on a two party preferred basis…”
      Who exactly is preferring two parties?

  • LOL. Aren’t sociopaths the most lovable people in the world? Who else can think like them?

    • Psychopaths

      • Sociopathy is a subset of psychopathy, with a narcissistic bias.

  • Once again Ms Johnstone you hit the nail directly on the head and pounded it in with one stoke. The ” Owners and Masters ” running these United States of America want everyone and everything the entire world over to obey their orders immediately, if not sooner. President Donald Trump is a perfect ” hood ornament ” for this ” Evil Empire ” exposing the hypocrisy, contempt, and in your face satanism of a pure devil government.

  • Iran is perfectly normal in that the people at the top – in this case Rouhani and his mates – collude with the US – just like those at the top of most other countries. This is evidenced by the fact that the crash of Ukrainian Airlines flight PS-752 was obviously faked indicating that there was collusion between Rouhani, the US, the Ukraine and Canada at the very least. (There was considerable multi-nation collusion in 9/11, the massive Full-Scale Anti-Terrorist exercise pushed out as a real event where the only major realities of the day were damage to and destruction of buildings.)
    Evidence for the fakery on my comment on Caitlin’s previous post: https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2020/01/12/iran-and-other-notes-from-the-edge-of-the-narrative-matrix/
    As the Dutch former high finance operative, Ronald Bernard, says:
    “At the top, they’re all in in it together.”
    Ronald Bernard is a must-watch – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHVkQBrEIOg
    And as Antony Sutton said (although I believe he was controlled opposition nevertheless these people can speak an awful lot of truth).
    “Sooner or later people will wake up. First we have to dump the trap of right and left, this is a Hegelian trap to divide and control. The battle is not between right and left; it is between us and them …​”

  • A swing , , , and she knocks it out of the park again.
    my dearest **CJ**
    I don’t know where you get your moxy, perseverance
    and extraordinary intellect with humor from,
    but you’re the closest reincarnation of Malcolm-X
    that I have encountered since he was gunned down.
    Just amazing , , , you help keep me sane.
    Thank you.
