Join The Unthanks in a mass singalong as part of this year’s Home Gathering weekender in Newcastle – ChronicleLive

August is usually the quietest period for touring acts on the club/concert scene as it is in the peak festival season.

It does, however, offer an opportunity to take a breather and look a little further ahead. A three-day festival next month looks likely to consolidate its position on the roots music calendar.

Home Gathering is an annual event curated and presented by the highly-successful Tyneside act, The Unthanks, and this years assembly the third such showcase has a brilliantly eclectic line-up.

The three day jamboree from Friday, September, 15 to Sunday, September 17, offers a rolling cast of quality performers across two stages in Newcastles Hoults Yard, a rejuvenated former pottery/ industrial site which is situated just off City Road and a short walk across Glasshouse bridge from the Ouseburn.

There will be an exclusive, once only performance of The Bairns (The Unthanks second release from 2007) by Rachel Unthank and The Winterset, marking the 10th anniversary of the Mercury nominated album.

Before that there is a cracking line-up which includes a solo performance from New Yorks Joan Wasser, better known as Joan As Policewoman, the unmistakeable folktronica hybrid which has made Beth Orton such a unique musician.

One of the tightest bands on the UK scene, The Blockheads, bring some stellar songs and musicianship and continue to fly the flag for the work of the late former leader, Ian Dury.

The Blockheads, however, are a terrific unit in their own right and boast two proud Geordies John Turnbull (guitars) and Mick Gallagher (keys) as well as Wilko Johnson bassist, Norman Watt-Roy, powerhouse saxophonist Gilad Atzmon and Chaz Jankel, Davey Payne, Terry Edwards and John Roberts, too.

Out front is the irrepressible showman, poet and wit, Derek The Draw. All band members have solo/collaborative credits which far and away exceed the column space here.

Gallaghers, for example, includes the Animals (he replaced Alan Price back in the 60s before Dave Rowberry was drafted in), Paul McCartney and The Clash.

The ever-busy band celebrate the 40th anniversary of their defining album, New Boots and Panties, but their last album, Same Horse Different Jockey, sums up the transition from backing band to self-contained unit.

The former Specials vocalist/toaster, Neville Staple, and his eight-piece band will bring a batch of new material but there will surely be room for some old Two Tone hits A Message To You Rudy, Ghost Town, Too Much Too Young, Free Nelson Mandela, etc. The Stockport quartet, the Dutch Uncles, are also on the bill as is the Wolverhampton folk-rock singer/songwriter, Scott Matthews.

More overtly folky are Londons Lisa Knapp, Welsh songstress (and Fernhill singer) Julie Murphy and there is Chris Wood, too. All three have made a lasting mark with some outstanding albums in recent years.

There is comedy in the shape of Henry Normal (writer for Alan Partridge, Royal Family) and Graham Fellows (John Shuttleworth, Jilted John)

Saturday night will bring another special performance when the The Unthanks 10 piece line-up will enjoy some impromptu session singers! As their PR explains, there are plans to have the band augmented at points by 100 singing weekenders in the audience, primed through morning harmony workshops to create what in the past two years have been spine tingling, unique moments.

Having sung with just Rachel and Becky Unthank in workshops, the 100 strong choir dotted in the audience havent heard what the band are going to do, and the band havent heard the singers.

The Unthanks band respond intuitively to the singers, who are gradually joined in song by the whole 1,000 capacity audience, to create a wall of harmonic sound – an experience unique and belonging to everyone present.

Although the two previous years were hosted by local promoters, SSD, the Unthanks are now steering Home Gathering in characteristically independent style, with no funding or backing. We have a hand in every detail to ensure that despite our own largely miserable music, it will be a party from start to finish, says Unthanks pianist and producer, Adrian McNally.

Having covered a lot of musical ground ourselves as The Unthanks, we know we are very lucky to have an open-minded and venturesome audience, ready to trust and join us on our journeys. We have treated the chance to host our own festival with the same multifarious, magpie-like approach, and what we hope most of all is that people will go home having loved something they werent expecting to.

Its great that theres such diversity of art form and genre to be found at festivals these days, but so often the poetry is in the poetry tent, the comedy is in the comedy tent, the big bands are on the big stage etc.

We cant help thinking that its getting like the live equivalent of the internet, with people gravitating to what they know they already like. We want to run a festival that is billed more confidently and randomly, mixing up the audience experience so that good times end up full of enriching surprises.

To paraphrase Mark Twain, Home Gathering is like the weather, just wait a few minutes and it will change.

There is a variety of ticketing arrangements early bird, day-specific, full weekend etc. Concessions are available, too. For full information and to book tickets, visit www.homegathering.co.uk

All enquiries to Lee Etherington, Operations Director for The Unthanks: operations@the-unthanks.com and media partner The Quietus, www.thequietus.com .

Next week, it is the turn of another summer regular the Jumpin Hot Clubs Country Cantina at Acklington (Northumberland) Village Hall – which takes place on Saturday, August 12.

Trump’s Choices. Russian Military has Concluded that Washington is preparing a surprise Nuclear Attack on Russia – Center for Research on…

Donald Trump as President of the United States was humanitys hope, or, I should say, the hope of that part of humanity aware of the danger inherent in provoking conflict between nuclear powers. For two decades, the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes have thrown sticks, stones, and nasty words at the Russian bear. The US has broken and withdrawn from security agreement after security agreement and has compounded the threat that Russia sees by conducting war games on Russias borders, staging a coup in Ukraine, a province of Russia for centuries, and by a continuous stream of false accusations against Russia.

The result of this irresponsible, thoughtless, and reckless policy toward Russia was the announcement a few weeks ago (ignored by the US media) by the Russian high command that.

This is the most alarming event of my lifetime. Now that Washingtons criminally insane have convinced Russia that Russia is in Washingtons war plans, Russia has no alternative but to prepare to strike first.

During the Cold War both sides received numerous false alarms of incoming ICBMs, but because both sides were working to reduce tensions, the alarms were disbelieved. But today with Washington having raised tensions so high, both sides are likely to believe the false alarm. The next false alarm could bring the end of life on earth, and for this there is no one to be blamed but Washington.

Trumps emphasis on normalizing relations with Russia was a great relief to people sufficiently intelligent to understand the consequences of nuclear war. But none of these people are in Washington, the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, the military/security complex, or among the presstitutes that pass for a media in America. All of these people want to destroy Trump because he wants to make peace with Russia.

Of the 535 members of the House and Senate, 530 voted in support of a bill that violates the separation of powers and prevents President Trump from removing sanctions on Russia. As the vote is so overwhelming that it is veto proof, the White House has announced that Trump will sign the bill, thus surrendering and giving up on his goal of restoring normal relations with Russia.

The White House believes that as the bill is veto proof, all that Trump could achieve by a veto is to prove the charges that he is a Russian agent and is using his office to protect Russia, and this could easily be turned into an impeachment proceeding.

However, there are things Trump could do, and since defusing the threat that Russia sees is essential to the avoidance of war, it is imperative that Trump do everything he can to prevent the military/security complex and its servants in Congress and the media from locking America into deadly conflict with Russia.

As I wrote yesterday, Trump could take his case to the American people in a major speech and point out that Congress is violating the separation of powers, hamstringing the power of the presidency, and making it illegal for him to reduce the dangerous tensions that previous administrations have created with a major nuclear power.

Trump could also tell Congress that their law is unconstitutional and that he wont sign or veto the bill, and if Congress persists he will take it to the Supreme Court.

Trump could also get on the telephone with the German politicians and corporate CEOs who have denounced the sanctions as illegal and intended to serve US business interests at the expense of Germany. He should tell them to force Merkel to announce that Germany will not accept the sanctions. The EU leadership also denounces the sanctions. Trump, with a little effort, can organize so much European opposition that he can tell Congress that as the President of the United States he cannot permit a collection of mindless morons, which is what Congress is, to destroy Washingtons empire by driving Europeans out of it. If Trump can get the Europeans to act, he can defeat the bill, which is really nothing but Congress service to its political campaign contributors in the military/security complex and the US energy industry.

Trump is a fighter. And this is Trumps fight. He has everything to gain by rising to the challenge, and so do the rest of us. The entire world should get behind Trump as there is no one else to defuse the tensions that are leading to nuclear war.

I have been amazed at the stupidity and mendacity of the American liberal-progressive-left, who have fallen in line with the military/security complexs effort to destroy Trump, because peace with Russia takes away the orchestrated enemy so essential to the budget and power of the military/security complex. Of course, America no longer has a left. The left has been displaced by Identity Politics, a Zionist creation, as Gilad Atzmon explains in his books, that is proving effective in destroying the goyim by teaching them to hate one another. In Identity Politics, everyone is the victim of white heterosexual males, whom Identity Politics defines as misogynist, racist, homophobic gun nutsHillarys Trump deplorables. As the deplorables voted for Trump, the liberal-progressive-left hate Trump and are helping the military/security complex destroy him even it it means nuclear war.

As I predicted would be the case, Trump had no idea how to appoint a government that would be on his side, and obviously failed completely. He is continually contradicted by his UN ambassador, his Secretary of State, his National Security Advisor, his Secretary of Defense. Trump is alone in his government.

So, he might as well fight. Address the American people. Organize the angry Europeans. Take the fight to criminally insane Washington before the criminals destroy the world in war.

Already in the 21st century Washington has destroyed in whole or part seven countries, producing millions of refugees who, together with immigrants claiming refugee status, are altering the populations of European countries and wiping Europe off of the face of the earth.

This is Europes reward for being Washingtons vassal.

Trump should say to Europe: It is time to tell Washington that you have had enough!

If Trump doesnt fight and is led away by the morons advising him into the camp of the ruling oligarchs, Trump, in order to perform in a leadership role will lead American wars against the world. As a war leader he will be supported by the ruling oligarchy, and the dumbshit liberal-progressives, having helped the military/security complex defeat Trumps initiative for peace with Russia, will have not a leg to stand on.

Here is my prediction. Trumps personality compels him to be a leader. Trump, having been defeated in his peace initiative by the military/security complex, the liberal-progressive-left, the corrupt Democrats, the corrupt Republicans, and the whores who pass for a media will regain leadership via wars and aggression against foreign enemies.

Trump has already put illegal sanctions on Venezuela, hoping to overthrow Venezuelan democracy and restore Washingtons rule through the small group of right-wing Spanish who have traditionally dominated Venezuela.

Russia and China had a chance to come to Venezuelas aid and to prevent the coming overthrow of the democratically elected government by Washington, but both countries lacked the necessary vision. Once Washington overthrows the Venezuelan government, Washington will overthrow the government in Ecuador and have Julian Assanges diplomatic asylum revoked. Once Assange is tortured into claiming that Wikileaks is a Russian/American organization financed by Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, Assange will be put to death, and the dumbshit Americans will cheer. Then Washington will overthrow Bolivia and have a purge conducted in Brazil against all political leaders who are not on the CIAs payroll.

Then Washington will brand Russia and China outlaw nations and surrounded as they will be with US nuclear missiles and ABM sites, Washington will demand surrender or destruction.

It all seems a fantasy, doesnt it. But it is very real.

This summer we’re bringing you daily posts from our sister site, Jewcy.com, edited by Gabriela Geselowitz. You can … – Tablet Magazine

This summer were bringing you daily posts from our sister site, Jewcy.com, edited by Gabriela Geselowitz. You can find more from Jewcy here.

If the Trumpian Julius Caesar wasnt enough controversy for this summer, another theater piece came and went on July 2 in New York: Romeo and Jewliet, spelled exactly thus. Its a modern ballet of the Shakesperean love story set in Vienna, 1938, back in town after its debut three years ago. It is a work of the small independent ballet company, American Liberty Ballet. Predictably, with that setting, it features a romance between a Nazi soldier and a Jewish woman. The venue for this performance was Theater 80, the same place that hosted Gilad Atzmon, the ex-Jewish conspiracy theorist, just two months ago.

Are you noticing a theme?

My thought on when I heard about the ballet was mostly was a wordless scream of rage and disgust, summed up by this image:

But I decided to give it a chance, and let the piece speak for itself. Well, the ballet itself from an artistic standpoint, was strange. The musical choices ranged from the Beatles and Depeche Mode to orchestral pieces, and the dancing was often out of sync. I was not sure if this was a deliberate choice, but I suspect at least some of the time, the dancers were meant to be leaping in unison, but failed to achieve it. Maybe modern ballet just isnt for me.

I wish my frustrations lay only with my ignorance of the genre of modern dance, and not with the material itself. But lately, goyim seem to like to write stories that have Jews and Nazis falling in love with each other. Never is any Jew involved in creating these stories, because the thought of a romantic connection with someone who wants to turn us and our families into ash is not just revolting, it is impossible, and indeed sometimes the plot demands that the Jew convert, obtain false papers, and live under a new, false name. Love requires parity, and you dont get parity when the other person doesnt consider you human.

Ew. Thats some slave/master love story shit, said a friend of mine, Marisa Zimmerman, an African-American woman. Shes correct: the same dehumanization and impetus for slavery and extermination were present in the antebellum south and the Shoah both, and therefore these love story setups are equally revolting for the same reason. People who conceive of these stories are universally from outside our communities, and not only have no sense of our trauma, but no respect for it.

The director and sole choreographer of show is a white woman named Valerie Mae Brown, a classically trained ballet dancer from San Diego. She freely admits she has no Jewish or Roma ancestry, and no connection to the Holocaust at all, merely a life-long fascination with the subject. It was my mom who suggested I set a show in this era! she told me, and I wanted to give my lead [dancer] a present, you know, and she said: Romeo and Juliet.

Thats it. Thats how we get this anti-Semitic garbage fire. Well-meaning ignorance and an utter disregard for the kind of trauma and society-deep sickness that genocide both causes, and requires.

Valerie doesnt strike me as a bad person. She was smiley, sincere, and bouncy, and willing to answer any question. She created her ballet company to provide opportunities for dancers who were between companies or productions, and about half her dancers have professional backgrounds. The other half are new, or mid-level. She also expressly stated her commitment to having multiple body types cast, which is an issue in the theater and dance world, which sharply limits your opportunities if youre a woman of color, or too tall, or curvy, or somehow dont fit a very specific mold. She is genuinely trying to create more opportunity not just for the arts, but for the women and men who face more barriers within the field.

But in her desire to push her creative envelope, Valerie revealed her deep paucity of knowledge about the Holocaust and about Jews as living people, despite her life-long fascination with the subject. Its a failure of intersectionality and the Jews all over again, which is a running theme these days. Is there anything more cringe-worthy than naming your heroine Jewliet, to indicate her Other-ness? Maybe only by having her love interest be a Nazi.

Who do you write for? she asked me. Jewcy. Just like Jewliet!

Yes. Just like that.

Censors attack False Flag Weekly News, Gilad Atzmon …

By Kevin Barrett on April 29, 2017

Watch FFWN above; click HERE for links to the stories, and HERE to support FFWN and my work.

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

This weeks False Flag Weekly News broke two huge storiesabout efforts to shut down False Flag Weekly News!

First story: My lawyer Bruce Leichty just sent a demand letter to GoFundMes CEO Robert Solomon, and VP of Customer Happiness Greg Smith. The letter serves notice thatGoFundMe must reinstate my account (including my donor database), return the more than $1000 they stole, compensate me for damages to my independent media operation, and apologize to me and my donors. GoFundMe appears to have committedbreach of contract, conversion of property, civil rights violations, and an unlawful larcenous act (within the definition of grand theft under California penal code) among other crimes and torts.

GoFundMe nuked my fundraising platform two weeks ago, apparently in response to the tremendous success of False Flag Weekly News and its new fund-raiser. They vaguely cited unexplained terms of service violations.

Second story: Professor Tony Hall has finally obtained what appears to be a copy of the complaint lodged against him last fall by his own University of Lethbridge Administration, apparently led by Mike Mahon under the guidance of Bnai Brith to the Alberta Human Rights Commission (AHRC). In essence, the complaint argues that it is a crime in Canada to study and discuss false flag terrorism, especially inrelation to Israel. The evidence against Tony Hall is basically a very long list of out-of-context items from False Flag Weekly News.

The Alberta Human Rights Commission unsurprisinglyruled in favor of Tony Hall. So now the unnamed complainants may be trying to purge the AHRC, insert their own people, and appeal. Talk about chutzpah!

Bottom line: They are obviously trying to kill False Flag Weekly News by destroying Tony Halls career and livelihood as a tenured full professor, and my career and livelihood as an alternative journalist and independent scholar.

Meanwhile, the efforts to silence Gilad Atzmon continue. Bill Weinberg and co.s failed witch-hunt against Gilads New York appearance tomorrow night is a case in point.

Closer to (my) home, another attempt to silence Gilad has been stymied. The University of Wisconsin has canceled my room reservation for what was originally going to be a private Debate Gilad Atzmon event. Apparently the Madison, WI equivalentsof Bill Weinberg heard about the event, complained to the University, and convinced them to cancel the reservation.

So now, instead of being a private event, Debate Gilad Atzmon will be 100% public no RSVPs necessary! Just show up at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 2, in the Rathskeller of the U.W.-Madison Memorial Union. Parking is available in the State St. Campus Garage. More information HERE.

And if you cant make it to Madison, Wisconsin, you can still listen to Gilads live jam with the psychedelic chill improv ensemble Abandon Control. Itshappening Monday, May 1, 7:30 to 11 pm at an undisclosed location, live-streaming via AbandonControl.com and the bands Facebook page.

Truth, beauty, and the questioning of hidebound orthodoxies cannot be silenced! The more they try to shut us down, the harder we will work to get the message out.

Palestinian Expo 2017: The UK Government and the Lobby – MWC News

|Print|E-mail

Tuesday, 27 June 2017 13:42

Over the last decade, Palestinian solidarity has been hijacked by many Jewish organisations – JVP, IJAN, J-BIG and also by other insipid left-leaning groups that in practice have reduced Palestinian solidarity into a paradigm that is lame, meaningless and leads absolutely nowhere.

This loose collective of tribal and Identitarian merchants has managed to reduce the magisterial Palestinian call for Right of Return into a squalid and self-serving Jewish internal debate about the Right to BDS. The discourse of the oppressed is now defined by the sensitivities of the oppressor.

Palestine Expo 2017, scheduled to take place on the weekend of July 8-9 at the QE2 centre, could have been an attempt to re-instate the meaning of Palestine: its culture, its politics and its call for liberation. It could have reinvigorated resistance and, most importantly, put the Right of Return at its heart. It could even have attempted to redefine and solidify the Palestinian conditions for peace in the region.

But it didnt aspire to do any of those things. Featuring Jewish anti-Zionist voices, and endorsed by various Jewish organisations, it instead attempts to give voice to the most politically-correct and Jewish-friendly vision of solidarity available. And guess what, it didnt work. Instead of welcoming this Zio-friendly approach, British Jews, utilising all their lobbies and employing every trick in the Hasbara playbook, have act institutionally and aggressively to cancel the event

Yesterday, we learned from theJewish Chroniclethat the British Government in the person Sajid Javid, the Communities Secretary, has threatened to cancel the Palestinian cultural festival in central London next month over the organisers Friends of Al-Aqsas (FOA) support of Hamas.In a letter sent to FOA on June 14, Mr. Javid said he was considering calling it off, citing: “concerns that your organisation and those connected with it have expressed public support for a proscribed organisation, namely Hamas, and that you have supported events at which Hamas and Hezbollah also proscribed have been praised.

I guess that the recent election results havent taught the Tories the necessary lesson, that people are sick and tired of these manufactured terror concerns, especially when they know that it is actually the British government that has been launching, one after the other, immoral and criminal Zio-con wars.

According to the notoriously Zionist Jewish Chronicle, Ismail Patel, founder of Friends of Al-Aqsa, is closely linked to several Islamic organisations and has openly expressed support for Hamas in the past, calling the group “no terrorist organisation.” Needless to say, Patel is spot on. Hamas is a democratically-elected body which, against all odds, manages with some success and without being their fault, the biggest open-air prison known to humankind, and whose militancy should be understood only in the context of its resistance to Israeli blockade, oppression and occupation. Anyway, as far as I can see, the conference is not voicing any particular support for Hamas.

The JC then goes on to list further crimes of the FOA. It has actively promoted boycotts of Israel and has hosted anti-Semitic musician Gilad Atzmon and Holocaust denier Paul Eisen on its website. Well, as far as supporting boycotts is concerned,surely boycotting Israel is an entirely peaceful act, so if the British Government is really so fearful of terror, boycotting Israel may well be the way forward.

As for yours truly, I have nothing to do with this event and naming me as an anti-Semite means very little unless one of these Jewish institutions that does this on a daily basis stands up and defines exactly what it is that I am not allowed to say. What exactly is the crime of which I am accused? As things stand, I have never been questioned about any of my views or statements by a single law enforcement authority around the world. If the JC really believes I am guilty of any hate crime, then it really ought, once and for all, say what it is. The JC also doesnt much like Paul Eisen, one of the very few authentic humanists around and who is repeatedly labelled a Holocaust denier just because he insists that the Holocaust be treated as an historical narrative rather than as a religion. Is this really a crime in the UK?

By now, British Jewish institutions should surely have grasped that these old, recycled anti-Semitic/Holocaust denier labels have lost their power. After all, they tried it with Corbyn and as we know, if anything, it only contributed to his popularity and near victory in the last election.

In a letter replying to the Secretary of State, Mr. Patel correctly states that the government is interfering unlawfully in this event and added that ministers had “failed to provide any satisfactory reason as to why they have chosen to cancel an event which seeks only to celebrate Palestinian culture and heritage.”

I would have liked to think that the Tories, now accused of BBQ-ing hundreds of working Brits and Muslims in Grenfell Tower, would have learned their lesson and behaved sensibly for a change. And here is the good news, they certainly did! As I was about to post this article I learned from the Jewish press that despite the Jewish lobby relentless pressure Palestine Expo 2017 is going ahead.

A spokesman for Mr. Javid said: We have worked with the QEII Centre to carry out checks following concerns raised about the Palestine Expo 2017. Following these checks, we have agreed the event can take place as planned. Seemingly calls to Boycott Israel and posting Gilad Atzmon and Paul Eisen articles is still a kosher adventure in the eyes of British law.

I guess that the British government may have learned its lesson after all. With a bit of luck, it may even subscribe to Athens against all odds and turn its back to Jerusalem

Being In Time: Gilad Atzmon’s journey through post-modern crises

In Being In Time, author and musician Gilad Atzmon explores the historical and psychological basis for the many crises gripping the western world.

Many of the same people lament the state of a broad, however amorphous western society that has succumbed to the trends of hyper-identity politics, political and economic sectarianism, brutal financial capitalism and the death of industry and censorship in societies that still preach the self-righteous yet vague cause of freedom.

InBeing In Time, author Gilad Atzmon offers a philosophical explanation for how these divergent trends are actually systematic outgrowths of societies simultaneously bewitched and confused by the abject failures of the three domineering ideologies of the 20th century: communism, fascism and liberalism.

Atzmon approaches how an uneasy calm in mid-20th century western states has given way to a world where the dams of free speech, prosperity and political predictability have been burst open leading to a flood of insecurity, third world style poverty and perhaps most importantly for Atzmon, the poverty of ideas.

Atzmon who has previously written about his personal struggles with and opposition to Jewish identity politics inThe Wandering Who, takes his dialectical approach further, subjectingmany contemporary and post-modern trends to the same scrutiny.

Such trends include, post-modernism, Cultural Marxism, post-Freudian social theory, the sexual identity agenda, post-modern attitudes to race and religion and the so-called populist political phenomena of Brexit and Donald Trump.

Atzmon calls his book a post-political manifesto, but it could equally be called a post-dogma manifesto. Atzmon laments a western world that has forsaken the Socratic method of embracing wisdom based on a combination of logic and ethics. Instead, Atzmon sees a western society obsessed with legal minutiae that he traces to strict Talmudic jurisprudence.

The book is very much in the tradition of the great secular conservative leaning sceptics and metaphysicists of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Those who have read Nietzsche or Spengler will recognise familiar diagnosis to modern problems combined with Atzmons unique world view shaped by the rejection of the Zionist creeds of his Israeli place of birth.

One might be so bold as to say that a great deal of geo-political philosophical commentary in the 21st century is largely shaped by people trying to either debunk or revise the manifestly ludicrous hypothesis ofFrancis Fukuyama.

At the dawn of the 1990s, Fukuyama inThe End of History and the Last Man stated that history had ceased to move forward and was comfortably numbed to the neo-liberal realities that everyone had accepted.

The problem is that not everyone accepted them and even those who did, have largely been failed by them both materially and spiritually.

Atzmon doesnt merely lacerate the post-Fukuyama developments in themetaphysical crisis currently gripping an increasingly hysterical liberal western establishment, but instead explains the root of these problems from the perspective of an historic prism illuminated through a combination of late-modern cultural analysis and Atzmons own unique trials and tribulations with the crises inherent in intra-Zionist Jewish identity.

I personally rarely recommend such books. I highly recommend this one.

Western Europe | Will the British government finally cancel a … – European Jewish Press

LONDON (EJP)—A minister in the British government has threatened to cancel a major Palestinian cultural festival in central Londonin July because of the organizers support for Palestinian terror group Hamas, The Jewish Chronicle reported.

The two-day festival, entitled Palestine Expo 2017, is to be held at the Queen Elizabeth II Center in central London on July 8 and 9. It is set to provide a platform to a group of activistsknown for their consistent hate speech against Jews and Israel including one speaker who has described Jews as sleazy thieves.

The clear support for Hamas of the organizers the Friends of Al-Aqsa (FOA), an Islamist organization based in Leicester led government minister Sajid Javid, who is in charge of communities and local government, to warn in a letter to the organizers that he was considering canceling the event citing: “concerns that your organisation and those connected with it have expressed public support for a proscribed organisation, namely Hamas, and that you have supported events at which Hamas and Hezbollah also proscribed have been praised.

Ismail Patel, founder of Friends of Al-Aqsa, is closely linked to several Islamic organisations and has openly expressed support for Hamas in the past, calling the group “no terrorist organisation.”

Aedon Cassiel, "Jewish Survival Strategies: An Interview …

2,359 words

Editors Note: This interview was recently conducted by e-mail between Aedon Cassiel and Gilad Atzmon. Atzmons latest book, Being in Time: A Post-Political Manifesto, is being released tomorrow (May 24).

In your work, who do you consider yourself to be speaking to? If you dont have a specific audience in mind, then my question is: if only one group of people could hear your message, who would you choose, and what would you have them do about it?

This is important to me. I do not intend to speak to people of any specific persuasion. I am not an activist and have zero interest in political involvement. I am engaged in an intellectual search. Jews fascinate me their troubled history, their survival strategies, their overrepresentation in media, politics, banking, the Manhattan Project, the list of the one hundred worst landlords in New York City, academia, and their dominance in political lobbying. I am trying to identify the cultural roots at the core of all that. In short, I am interested in the metaphysics that forms the Jew rather than the Jew himself. I am after culture and ideology.

The final third of Being in Time focuses on the idea of controlled opposition specifically, on the idea that Jews tend to both lead and manage criticism of Jews, even of criticism promulgated by other Jews, which has the effect of pushing non-Jews out of the sphere of the debate. Are your efforts another form of attempting to create a controlled opposition? Why or why not?

Thanks for raising this crucial point. If Jewish survival strategy is as sophisticated as I try to suggest, then you and others must take extra caution with Jewish ideologists and ideologies. And yes, I suppose this applies to me, too. My work must be subject to criticism, including the criticism the book itself applies, and hopefully it will stand the test of reflexivity.

What do you mean when you say that Jews are certainly not a race, nor even an ethnicity? What do you understand these two terms to mean? Is it that Jews consist of too many different unrelated groups to be fairly considered as a single collective, or do you mean to suggest that race and ethnicity are meaningless categories in general?

Despite the fact that many Jews insist that they belong to one race and share one father, it is more likely that Jews have not formed a single continuum as far as ancestry, genetics, or biology are concerned. However, it is clear to me that despite the fact that Jews do not form a racial continuum, their politics are always, and I really mean always, racially oriented.

You ask whether I believe that race and ethnicity are meaningless categories in general? Not at all. However, I am not an evolutionary scientist or an anthropologist, and the study of race or ethnicity isnt my domain. I dig into some philosophical questions having to do with Jewish identification.

You discuss at length the sociological implications of extensive cognitive partitioning in Jewish society over time, and as a historical cause of this phenomena you talk about the practice of selective breeding in Jewish rabbinical culture. In fact, this is one of the key points to which your work repeatedly comes back. Yet, you seem to want to shy away from claiming that genetic influences are part of the explanation behind why these patterns persist. How could the cognitive partitioning in Jewish society involve genealogy without involving genes? It seems odd to specifically identify breeding patterns as being responsible for this development, and yet as you seem to deny that heredity is the method of transmission. What, then, do you think is the mechanism behind this phenomenas historical persistence?

I have no doubt, as I state in Being in Time, that the European Jewish rabbinical meritocratic system can be understood as a eugenic project. I would be delighted to find out that an evolutionary scientist has decided to look into my theoretical model and produce a scientific study that would verify or refute my theoretical assumptions. Kevin MacDonald has produced the most important work on this topic to date, and the gross animosity he is subject to suggests that he is an Athenian truth-teller a critical philosophical mind.

You prefer to talk about ability as a general term rather than using IQ as a specific instance or measurement of ability. What theories do you have about what is at the core of the superior average ability of Jews?

In my work I do not provide facts or statistics. I am raising issues and you, the reader, my listener, are the facts. I produce an interpretation or analysis of a given situation, a set of problems in our current reality, and it is down to you to examine it, play with the ideas, and eventually make a judgment.

I am troubled by IQ measurement without regard to scientific debate over how to measure IQ. Ability can be judged by a persons achievements or merits. John Coltrane achieved more than any other saxophonist. I do not need to see his IQ results. Would Donald Trump score a higher result than Hillary Clinton on an IQ test? I doubt it somehow. Yet he was certainly more able to win the election. The reason I refer to ability is because for me, the crucial insight made by Richard Herrnstein and The Bell Curve was that they discerned that America was heading towards a cognitive partitioning. Herrnstein was an academic genius with significant ability. The Bell Curve could have saved the American people, but the book was effectually burned by the favorite Left icons: people like Noam Chomsky, academic fraudster Stephen J. Gould, and others. I allow myself to argue that Gould, Chomsky, and those others who trashed The Bell Curve bear direct responsibility for the dystopia in which we live. For me, the issues of the validity of IQ measurement and comparisons between races were side matters. The Bell Curves prophetic warnings about cognitive partitioning addressed a topic that has become the core of the oppressive reality in which we live.

Would you say that its rational for Jews of higher ability to want to keep their society focused towards increased cognitive partitioning?

I find it hard to verify whether it is the result of any conscious decision. What I argue in Being in Time is slightly different. I contend that since America and the West have evolved into cognitively divided environments, and since (Ashkenazi) Jews are accustomed to these conditions, it is hardly surprising that the Jewish Ashkenazi elite is prominent.

In the book, you frequently express a wish to see a return to manufacturing. I agree that this has to be a part of the picture, but presumably you wouldnt advocate sending academics out to work in factories and fields, for example. So in your view, what precisely would the full dissolution of cognitive partitioning entail, in practical terms? What would we have to do, and how long would it take, and what would the main difficulties be?

I believe that the structure of society will change radically. I do not think that society needs millions of unemployed Gender Studies graduates. For society to be functional, production and agriculture must be reinstated. Higher education must be free for those who are qualified. A functional society must decide what are its primary needs, e.g., how many new doctors are needed, how many engineers, philosophers, feminist scholars, or saxophonists? Academia should be set to provide this education for free and at the highest possible level. This would mean planning. This also suggests that academia wouldnt continue to operate as a self-serving industry. And yes, if industry, manufacturing, and production are starting to roll, we may find some very intelligent people involved. I do not see this as a negative development. Quite the opposite; society will once again be diverse for real. Isnt that what the progressives have been promising us for decades?

How extensive do you think the historical influence of identity politics would have been in an American society that never invited Jews in?

Good question, but unfortunately I have no answer. However, I would mention that identity politics operates as a cosmopolitan, revolutionary ideology. In other words, you do not need to be present in a place to spread the ideology.

Would American society have freed the slaves, or given women the vote as quickly, without the influence of Jews? Would feminism have become as radical and divisive?

We have to be careful here. We have to differentiate between political acts that unite us as humans and those which break us up into tribes. The abolition of slavery was an American political project that was partially motivated by ethical reasoning. The same applies to womens rights. However, radical feminism and lesbian separatism are as separatist as Jewish identity politics (Zionism as well as anti). They are biologically-oriented identitarian thoughts that are set to maintain a fragmented, sectarian social environment.

Without identity politics, would black-white relations hold as much tension as they do today? And if Jews both helped press the legitimate form of early identity politics to achieve their aims faster, and held on by the skin of their teeth as identity politics outlived its purpose and became toxic, how can we even begin to analyze the net impact of these two diverging phenomena?

I guess that this is exactly what I attempt to do in Being in Time: I try to dissect the corrosive factors that broke us into sectors.

Your analysis seems to be that Jews have been a leading force in promoting identity politics as a conscious or subconscious means to divide and fracture society in order to normalize the sense of homelessness throughout society that they feel, to ensure that no one else is allowed to have any stronger sense of belonging than they do. If the root behind the effort to promote this kind of division is the Jewish sense of homelessness, then why isnt giving Jews a home to take away that underlying feeling of homelessness not a viable answer to the situation?

I actually believe that allocating a national homeland for the Jews was a great idea. I argue that early Zionism was a consistent and coherent movement that was highly effective in its ability to diagnose the Jewish problem and cultural symptoms. Yet, the failure of Zionism suggests that planet Earth may not be a suitable place for such a homeland. Zionism has proven that, despite its initial promise to turn the Jews into people like all other people, the Israelis didnt manage to develop an empathic notion of otherness. Their treatment of the Palestinians proves this point beyond doubt. Israel also fails to love its neighbors. In fact, along with its dedicated Jewish lobbies (AIPAC, CRIFF, CFI, etc.), it relentlessly pushes for global conflicts (Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran, etc.). Let me make it as clear as I can, though I am accused by some Zionists of reopening the Jewish question: I fully acknowledge that I do not have a solution for the problems above, nor am I going to try to solve these problems.

Lets talk about how intentional you think these Jewish tendencies towards fomenting division are. For instance, Tim Wise is an anti-racist activist who travels around lecturing about giving up white privilege, and challenging everyone else to give up their privileges as he has given up his own. Wise never openly identifies as a Jew, and he speaks about himself as if he were of white European origins. Is it meaningful to talk about someone like Tim Wise, who is of Jewish descent but identifies himself neither religiously nor politically as a Jew or as Jewish?

In The Wandering Who?, I restricted my analysis to those who identify themselves primarily as Jews. This was a relatively easy task, and it helped to clarify that the Zionist and the so-called anti are one. In Being in Time, I extended my scope. I am, once again, talking about the Athens/Jerusalem dichotomy. Jerusalemites always know what is kosher and who is treif (basket of deplorables). Progressives behave as a bunch of Jerusalemites who subscribe to secular chosenism. They attribute to themselves a special sense of superiority and at the same time look down on the so-called reactionary. Tim Wise and other prog-preachers should self-reflect. He should ask himself why he thinks in racial categories. He should wonder why he subscribes to binary thinking that resembles the Jew/Goy, Kosher/Treif. Can he love his white neighbor? While Jerusalem is a form of obedience, Athens is a task, it is a hard job. It involves constant dynamic conceptual shifting intellectually, mentally, spiritually, and ethically.

Do you think someone like Tim Wise is either consciously aware of, or consciously intending, to create the divisive outcomes caused by his style of identity politics? To what extent is any of this conscious?

I really do not know. My role as a philosopher is to refine the questions rather than dictating answers. I certainly believe that these are the kind of questions that Wise should ask himself and that others are entitled to ask of him. In fact, these are the kind of questions each of us ought to ponder.

This question isnt as focused inside your main line of argument as my others are, but it crossed my mind as I was reading. Is there any reason why Jewish influence over divisive forms of feminism, for example, would be as significant as it was, and yet Jews have not or to my knowledge, they havent yet co-opted the so-called mens rights movement, or mens rights activism? Why would involvement in feminism serve Jewish interests, but not involvement in MRA ideologies?

Great question. Otto Weininger insisted that the Jewish man was actually a woman. Maybe this is the answer to your question. Maybe the reason I decided to stop being a Jew was because I didnt want to be a woman. I probably have to look into that for a while.

Brother, you cant imagine how much I enjoyed addressing your insightful questions. Peace.

Join The Unthanks in a mass singalong as part of this year’s Home Gathering weekender in Newcastle – ChronicleLive

August is usually the quietest period for touring acts on the club/concert scene as it is in the peak festival season. It does, however, offer an opportunity to take a breather and look a little further ahead. A three-day festival next month looks likely to consolidate its position on the roots music calendar. Home Gathering is an annual event curated and presented by the highly-successful Tyneside act, The Unthanks, and this years assembly the third such showcase has a brilliantly eclectic line-up. The three day jamboree from Friday, September, 15 to Sunday, September 17, offers a rolling cast of quality performers across two stages in Newcastles Hoults Yard, a rejuvenated former pottery/ industrial site which is situated just off City Road and a short walk across Glasshouse bridge from the Ouseburn. There will be an exclusive, once only performance of The Bairns (The Unthanks second release from 2007) by Rachel Unthank and The Winterset, marking the 10th anniversary of the Mercury nominated album. Before that there is a cracking line-up which includes a solo performance from New Yorks Joan Wasser, better known as Joan As Policewoman, the unmistakeable folktronica hybrid which has made Beth Orton such a unique musician. One of the tightest bands on the UK scene, The Blockheads, bring some stellar songs and musicianship and continue to fly the flag for the work of the late former leader, Ian Dury. The Blockheads, however, are a terrific unit in their own right and boast two proud Geordies John Turnbull (guitars) and Mick Gallagher (keys) as well as Wilko Johnson bassist, Norman Watt-Roy, powerhouse saxophonist Gilad Atzmon and Chaz Jankel, Davey Payne, Terry Edwards and John Roberts, too. Out front is the irrepressible showman, poet and wit, Derek The Draw. All band members have solo/collaborative credits which far and away exceed the column space here. Gallaghers, for example, includes the Animals (he replaced Alan Price back in the 60s before Dave Rowberry was drafted in), Paul McCartney and The Clash. The ever-busy band celebrate the 40th anniversary of their defining album, New Boots and Panties, but their last album, Same Horse Different Jockey, sums up the transition from backing band to self-contained unit. The former Specials vocalist/toaster, Neville Staple, and his eight-piece band will bring a batch of new material but there will surely be room for some old Two Tone hits A Message To You Rudy, Ghost Town, Too Much Too Young, Free Nelson Mandela, etc. The Stockport quartet, the Dutch Uncles, are also on the bill as is the Wolverhampton folk-rock singer/songwriter, Scott Matthews. More overtly folky are Londons Lisa Knapp, Welsh songstress (and Fernhill singer) Julie Murphy and there is Chris Wood, too. All three have made a lasting mark with some outstanding albums in recent years. There is comedy in the shape of Henry Normal (writer for Alan Partridge, Royal Family) and Graham Fellows (John Shuttleworth, Jilted John) Saturday night will bring another special performance when the The Unthanks 10 piece line-up will enjoy some impromptu session singers! As their PR explains, there are plans to have the band augmented at points by 100 singing weekenders in the audience, primed through morning harmony workshops to create what in the past two years have been spine tingling, unique moments. Having sung with just Rachel and Becky Unthank in workshops, the 100 strong choir dotted in the audience havent heard what the band are going to do, and the band havent heard the singers. The Unthanks band respond intuitively to the singers, who are gradually joined in song by the whole 1,000 capacity audience, to create a wall of harmonic sound – an experience unique and belonging to everyone present. Although the two previous years were hosted by local promoters, SSD, the Unthanks are now steering Home Gathering in characteristically independent style, with no funding or backing. We have a hand in every detail to ensure that despite our own largely miserable music, it will be a party from start to finish, says Unthanks pianist and producer, Adrian McNally. Having covered a lot of musical ground ourselves as The Unthanks, we know we are very lucky to have an open-minded and venturesome audience, ready to trust and join us on our journeys. We have treated the chance to host our own festival with the same multifarious, magpie-like approach, and what we hope most of all is that people will go home having loved something they werent expecting to. Its great that theres such diversity of art form and genre to be found at festivals these days, but so often the poetry is in the poetry tent, the comedy is in the comedy tent, the big bands are on the big stage etc. We cant help thinking that its getting like the live equivalent of the internet, with people gravitating to what they know they already like. We want to run a festival that is billed more confidently and randomly, mixing up the audience experience so that good times end up full of enriching surprises. To paraphrase Mark Twain, Home Gathering is like the weather, just wait a few minutes and it will change. There is a variety of ticketing arrangements early bird, day-specific, full weekend etc. Concessions are available, too. For full information and to book tickets, visit www.homegathering.co.uk All enquiries to Lee Etherington, Operations Director for The Unthanks: operations@the-unthanks.com and media partner The Quietus, www.thequietus.com . Next week, it is the turn of another summer regular the Jumpin Hot Clubs Country Cantina at Acklington (Northumberland) Village Hall – which takes place on Saturday, August 12.

Trump’s Choices. Russian Military has Concluded that Washington is preparing a surprise Nuclear Attack on Russia – Center for Research on…

Donald Trump as President of the United States was humanitys hope, or, I should say, the hope of that part of humanity aware of the danger inherent in provoking conflict between nuclear powers. For two decades, the Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes have thrown sticks, stones, and nasty words at the Russian bear. The US has broken and withdrawn from security agreement after security agreement and has compounded the threat that Russia sees by conducting war games on Russias borders, staging a coup in Ukraine, a province of Russia for centuries, and by a continuous stream of false accusations against Russia. The result of this irresponsible, thoughtless, and reckless policy toward Russia was the announcement a few weeks ago (ignored by the US media) by the Russian high command that. This is the most alarming event of my lifetime. Now that Washingtons criminally insane have convinced Russia that Russia is in Washingtons war plans, Russia has no alternative but to prepare to strike first. During the Cold War both sides received numerous false alarms of incoming ICBMs, but because both sides were working to reduce tensions, the alarms were disbelieved. But today with Washington having raised tensions so high, both sides are likely to believe the false alarm. The next false alarm could bring the end of life on earth, and for this there is no one to be blamed but Washington. Trumps emphasis on normalizing relations with Russia was a great relief to people sufficiently intelligent to understand the consequences of nuclear war. But none of these people are in Washington, the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, the military/security complex, or among the presstitutes that pass for a media in America. All of these people want to destroy Trump because he wants to make peace with Russia. Of the 535 members of the House and Senate, 530 voted in support of a bill that violates the separation of powers and prevents President Trump from removing sanctions on Russia. As the vote is so overwhelming that it is veto proof, the White House has announced that Trump will sign the bill, thus surrendering and giving up on his goal of restoring normal relations with Russia. The White House believes that as the bill is veto proof, all that Trump could achieve by a veto is to prove the charges that he is a Russian agent and is using his office to protect Russia, and this could easily be turned into an impeachment proceeding. However, there are things Trump could do, and since defusing the threat that Russia sees is essential to the avoidance of war, it is imperative that Trump do everything he can to prevent the military/security complex and its servants in Congress and the media from locking America into deadly conflict with Russia. As I wrote yesterday, Trump could take his case to the American people in a major speech and point out that Congress is violating the separation of powers, hamstringing the power of the presidency, and making it illegal for him to reduce the dangerous tensions that previous administrations have created with a major nuclear power. Trump could also tell Congress that their law is unconstitutional and that he wont sign or veto the bill, and if Congress persists he will take it to the Supreme Court. Trump could also get on the telephone with the German politicians and corporate CEOs who have denounced the sanctions as illegal and intended to serve US business interests at the expense of Germany. He should tell them to force Merkel to announce that Germany will not accept the sanctions. The EU leadership also denounces the sanctions. Trump, with a little effort, can organize so much European opposition that he can tell Congress that as the President of the United States he cannot permit a collection of mindless morons, which is what Congress is, to destroy Washingtons empire by driving Europeans out of it. If Trump can get the Europeans to act, he can defeat the bill, which is really nothing but Congress service to its political campaign contributors in the military/security complex and the US energy industry. Trump is a fighter. And this is Trumps fight. He has everything to gain by rising to the challenge, and so do the rest of us. The entire world should get behind Trump as there is no one else to defuse the tensions that are leading to nuclear war. I have been amazed at the stupidity and mendacity of the American liberal-progressive-left, who have fallen in line with the military/security complexs effort to destroy Trump, because peace with Russia takes away the orchestrated enemy so essential to the budget and power of the military/security complex. Of course, America no longer has a left. The left has been displaced by Identity Politics, a Zionist creation, as Gilad Atzmon explains in his books, that is proving effective in destroying the goyim by teaching them to hate one another. In Identity Politics, everyone is the victim of white heterosexual males, whom Identity Politics defines as misogynist, racist, homophobic gun nutsHillarys Trump deplorables. As the deplorables voted for Trump, the liberal-progressive-left hate Trump and are helping the military/security complex destroy him even it it means nuclear war. As I predicted would be the case, Trump had no idea how to appoint a government that would be on his side, and obviously failed completely. He is continually contradicted by his UN ambassador, his Secretary of State, his National Security Advisor, his Secretary of Defense. Trump is alone in his government. So, he might as well fight. Address the American people. Organize the angry Europeans. Take the fight to criminally insane Washington before the criminals destroy the world in war. Already in the 21st century Washington has destroyed in whole or part seven countries, producing millions of refugees who, together with immigrants claiming refugee status, are altering the populations of European countries and wiping Europe off of the face of the earth. This is Europes reward for being Washingtons vassal. Trump should say to Europe: It is time to tell Washington that you have had enough! If Trump doesnt fight and is led away by the morons advising him into the camp of the ruling oligarchs, Trump, in order to perform in a leadership role will lead American wars against the world. As a war leader he will be supported by the ruling oligarchy, and the dumbshit liberal-progressives, having helped the military/security complex defeat Trumps initiative for peace with Russia, will have not a leg to stand on. Here is my prediction. Trumps personality compels him to be a leader. Trump, having been defeated in his peace initiative by the military/security complex, the liberal-progressive-left, the corrupt Democrats, the corrupt Republicans, and the whores who pass for a media will regain leadership via wars and aggression against foreign enemies. Trump has already put illegal sanctions on Venezuela, hoping to overthrow Venezuelan democracy and restore Washingtons rule through the small group of right-wing Spanish who have traditionally dominated Venezuela. Russia and China had a chance to come to Venezuelas aid and to prevent the coming overthrow of the democratically elected government by Washington, but both countries lacked the necessary vision. Once Washington overthrows the Venezuelan government, Washington will overthrow the government in Ecuador and have Julian Assanges diplomatic asylum revoked. Once Assange is tortured into claiming that Wikileaks is a Russian/American organization financed by Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, Assange will be put to death, and the dumbshit Americans will cheer. Then Washington will overthrow Bolivia and have a purge conducted in Brazil against all political leaders who are not on the CIAs payroll. Then Washington will brand Russia and China outlaw nations and surrounded as they will be with US nuclear missiles and ABM sites, Washington will demand surrender or destruction. It all seems a fantasy, doesnt it. But it is very real.

This summer we’re bringing you daily posts from our sister site, Jewcy.com, edited by Gabriela Geselowitz. You can … – Tablet Magazine

This summer were bringing you daily posts from our sister site, Jewcy.com, edited by Gabriela Geselowitz. You can find more from Jewcy here. If the Trumpian Julius Caesar wasnt enough controversy for this summer, another theater piece came and went on July 2 in New York: Romeo and Jewliet, spelled exactly thus. Its a modern ballet of the Shakesperean love story set in Vienna, 1938, back in town after its debut three years ago. It is a work of the small independent ballet company, American Liberty Ballet. Predictably, with that setting, it features a romance between a Nazi soldier and a Jewish woman. The venue for this performance was Theater 80, the same place that hosted Gilad Atzmon, the ex-Jewish conspiracy theorist, just two months ago. Are you noticing a theme? My thought on when I heard about the ballet was mostly was a wordless scream of rage and disgust, summed up by this image: But I decided to give it a chance, and let the piece speak for itself. Well, the ballet itself from an artistic standpoint, was strange. The musical choices ranged from the Beatles and Depeche Mode to orchestral pieces, and the dancing was often out of sync. I was not sure if this was a deliberate choice, but I suspect at least some of the time, the dancers were meant to be leaping in unison, but failed to achieve it. Maybe modern ballet just isnt for me. I wish my frustrations lay only with my ignorance of the genre of modern dance, and not with the material itself. But lately, goyim seem to like to write stories that have Jews and Nazis falling in love with each other. Never is any Jew involved in creating these stories, because the thought of a romantic connection with someone who wants to turn us and our families into ash is not just revolting, it is impossible, and indeed sometimes the plot demands that the Jew convert, obtain false papers, and live under a new, false name. Love requires parity, and you dont get parity when the other person doesnt consider you human. Ew. Thats some slave/master love story shit, said a friend of mine, Marisa Zimmerman, an African-American woman. Shes correct: the same dehumanization and impetus for slavery and extermination were present in the antebellum south and the Shoah both, and therefore these love story setups are equally revolting for the same reason. People who conceive of these stories are universally from outside our communities, and not only have no sense of our trauma, but no respect for it. The director and sole choreographer of show is a white woman named Valerie Mae Brown, a classically trained ballet dancer from San Diego. She freely admits she has no Jewish or Roma ancestry, and no connection to the Holocaust at all, merely a life-long fascination with the subject. It was my mom who suggested I set a show in this era! she told me, and I wanted to give my lead [dancer] a present, you know, and she said: Romeo and Juliet. Thats it. Thats how we get this anti-Semitic garbage fire. Well-meaning ignorance and an utter disregard for the kind of trauma and society-deep sickness that genocide both causes, and requires. Valerie doesnt strike me as a bad person. She was smiley, sincere, and bouncy, and willing to answer any question. She created her ballet company to provide opportunities for dancers who were between companies or productions, and about half her dancers have professional backgrounds. The other half are new, or mid-level. She also expressly stated her commitment to having multiple body types cast, which is an issue in the theater and dance world, which sharply limits your opportunities if youre a woman of color, or too tall, or curvy, or somehow dont fit a very specific mold. She is genuinely trying to create more opportunity not just for the arts, but for the women and men who face more barriers within the field. But in her desire to push her creative envelope, Valerie revealed her deep paucity of knowledge about the Holocaust and about Jews as living people, despite her life-long fascination with the subject. Its a failure of intersectionality and the Jews all over again, which is a running theme these days. Is there anything more cringe-worthy than naming your heroine Jewliet, to indicate her Other-ness? Maybe only by having her love interest be a Nazi. Who do you write for? she asked me. Jewcy. Just like Jewliet! Yes. Just like that.

Censors attack False Flag Weekly News, Gilad Atzmon …

By Kevin Barrett on April 29, 2017 Watch FFWN above; click HERE for links to the stories, and HERE to support FFWN and my work. By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor This weeks False Flag Weekly News broke two huge storiesabout efforts to shut down False Flag Weekly News! First story: My lawyer Bruce Leichty just sent a demand letter to GoFundMes CEO Robert Solomon, and VP of Customer Happiness Greg Smith. The letter serves notice thatGoFundMe must reinstate my account (including my donor database), return the more than $1000 they stole, compensate me for damages to my independent media operation, and apologize to me and my donors. GoFundMe appears to have committedbreach of contract, conversion of property, civil rights violations, and an unlawful larcenous act (within the definition of grand theft under California penal code) among other crimes and torts. GoFundMe nuked my fundraising platform two weeks ago, apparently in response to the tremendous success of False Flag Weekly News and its new fund-raiser. They vaguely cited unexplained terms of service violations. Second story: Professor Tony Hall has finally obtained what appears to be a copy of the complaint lodged against him last fall by his own University of Lethbridge Administration, apparently led by Mike Mahon under the guidance of Bnai Brith to the Alberta Human Rights Commission (AHRC). In essence, the complaint argues that it is a crime in Canada to study and discuss false flag terrorism, especially inrelation to Israel. The evidence against Tony Hall is basically a very long list of out-of-context items from False Flag Weekly News. The Alberta Human Rights Commission unsurprisinglyruled in favor of Tony Hall. So now the unnamed complainants may be trying to purge the AHRC, insert their own people, and appeal. Talk about chutzpah! Bottom line: They are obviously trying to kill False Flag Weekly News by destroying Tony Halls career and livelihood as a tenured full professor, and my career and livelihood as an alternative journalist and independent scholar. Meanwhile, the efforts to silence Gilad Atzmon continue. Bill Weinberg and co.s failed witch-hunt against Gilads New York appearance tomorrow night is a case in point. Closer to (my) home, another attempt to silence Gilad has been stymied. The University of Wisconsin has canceled my room reservation for what was originally going to be a private Debate Gilad Atzmon event. Apparently the Madison, WI equivalentsof Bill Weinberg heard about the event, complained to the University, and convinced them to cancel the reservation. So now, instead of being a private event, Debate Gilad Atzmon will be 100% public no RSVPs necessary! Just show up at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 2, in the Rathskeller of the U.W.-Madison Memorial Union. Parking is available in the State St. Campus Garage. More information HERE. And if you cant make it to Madison, Wisconsin, you can still listen to Gilads live jam with the psychedelic chill improv ensemble Abandon Control. Itshappening Monday, May 1, 7:30 to 11 pm at an undisclosed location, live-streaming via AbandonControl.com and the bands Facebook page. Truth, beauty, and the questioning of hidebound orthodoxies cannot be silenced! The more they try to shut us down, the harder we will work to get the message out.

Palestinian Expo 2017: The UK Government and the Lobby – MWC News

|Print|E-mail Tuesday, 27 June 2017 13:42 Over the last decade, Palestinian solidarity has been hijacked by many Jewish organisations – JVP, IJAN, J-BIG and also by other insipid left-leaning groups that in practice have reduced Palestinian solidarity into a paradigm that is lame, meaningless and leads absolutely nowhere. This loose collective of tribal and Identitarian merchants has managed to reduce the magisterial Palestinian call for Right of Return into a squalid and self-serving Jewish internal debate about the Right to BDS. The discourse of the oppressed is now defined by the sensitivities of the oppressor. Palestine Expo 2017, scheduled to take place on the weekend of July 8-9 at the QE2 centre, could have been an attempt to re-instate the meaning of Palestine: its culture, its politics and its call for liberation. It could have reinvigorated resistance and, most importantly, put the Right of Return at its heart. It could even have attempted to redefine and solidify the Palestinian conditions for peace in the region. But it didnt aspire to do any of those things. Featuring Jewish anti-Zionist voices, and endorsed by various Jewish organisations, it instead attempts to give voice to the most politically-correct and Jewish-friendly vision of solidarity available. And guess what, it didnt work. Instead of welcoming this Zio-friendly approach, British Jews, utilising all their lobbies and employing every trick in the Hasbara playbook, have act institutionally and aggressively to cancel the event Yesterday, we learned from theJewish Chroniclethat the British Government in the person Sajid Javid, the Communities Secretary, has threatened to cancel the Palestinian cultural festival in central London next month over the organisers Friends of Al-Aqsas (FOA) support of Hamas.In a letter sent to FOA on June 14, Mr. Javid said he was considering calling it off, citing: “concerns that your organisation and those connected with it have expressed public support for a proscribed organisation, namely Hamas, and that you have supported events at which Hamas and Hezbollah also proscribed have been praised. I guess that the recent election results havent taught the Tories the necessary lesson, that people are sick and tired of these manufactured terror concerns, especially when they know that it is actually the British government that has been launching, one after the other, immoral and criminal Zio-con wars. According to the notoriously Zionist Jewish Chronicle, Ismail Patel, founder of Friends of Al-Aqsa, is closely linked to several Islamic organisations and has openly expressed support for Hamas in the past, calling the group “no terrorist organisation.” Needless to say, Patel is spot on. Hamas is a democratically-elected body which, against all odds, manages with some success and without being their fault, the biggest open-air prison known to humankind, and whose militancy should be understood only in the context of its resistance to Israeli blockade, oppression and occupation. Anyway, as far as I can see, the conference is not voicing any particular support for Hamas. The JC then goes on to list further crimes of the FOA. It has actively promoted boycotts of Israel and has hosted anti-Semitic musician Gilad Atzmon and Holocaust denier Paul Eisen on its website. Well, as far as supporting boycotts is concerned,surely boycotting Israel is an entirely peaceful act, so if the British Government is really so fearful of terror, boycotting Israel may well be the way forward. As for yours truly, I have nothing to do with this event and naming me as an anti-Semite means very little unless one of these Jewish institutions that does this on a daily basis stands up and defines exactly what it is that I am not allowed to say. What exactly is the crime of which I am accused? As things stand, I have never been questioned about any of my views or statements by a single law enforcement authority around the world. If the JC really believes I am guilty of any hate crime, then it really ought, once and for all, say what it is. The JC also doesnt much like Paul Eisen, one of the very few authentic humanists around and who is repeatedly labelled a Holocaust denier just because he insists that the Holocaust be treated as an historical narrative rather than as a religion. Is this really a crime in the UK? By now, British Jewish institutions should surely have grasped that these old, recycled anti-Semitic/Holocaust denier labels have lost their power. After all, they tried it with Corbyn and as we know, if anything, it only contributed to his popularity and near victory in the last election. In a letter replying to the Secretary of State, Mr. Patel correctly states that the government is interfering unlawfully in this event and added that ministers had “failed to provide any satisfactory reason as to why they have chosen to cancel an event which seeks only to celebrate Palestinian culture and heritage.” I would have liked to think that the Tories, now accused of BBQ-ing hundreds of working Brits and Muslims in Grenfell Tower, would have learned their lesson and behaved sensibly for a change. And here is the good news, they certainly did! As I was about to post this article I learned from the Jewish press that despite the Jewish lobby relentless pressure Palestine Expo 2017 is going ahead. A spokesman for Mr. Javid said: We have worked with the QEII Centre to carry out checks following concerns raised about the Palestine Expo 2017. Following these checks, we have agreed the event can take place as planned. Seemingly calls to Boycott Israel and posting Gilad Atzmon and Paul Eisen articles is still a kosher adventure in the eyes of British law. I guess that the British government may have learned its lesson after all. With a bit of luck, it may even subscribe to Athens against all odds and turn its back to Jerusalem Subscribe via RSS or Email:

Being In Time: Gilad Atzmon’s journey through post-modern crises

In Being In Time, author and musician Gilad Atzmon explores the historical and psychological basis for the many crises gripping the western world. Many of the same people lament the state of a broad, however amorphous western society that has succumbed to the trends of hyper-identity politics, political and economic sectarianism, brutal financial capitalism and the death of industry and censorship in societies that still preach the self-righteous yet vague cause of freedom. InBeing In Time, author Gilad Atzmon offers a philosophical explanation for how these divergent trends are actually systematic outgrowths of societies simultaneously bewitched and confused by the abject failures of the three domineering ideologies of the 20th century: communism, fascism and liberalism. Atzmon approaches how an uneasy calm in mid-20th century western states has given way to a world where the dams of free speech, prosperity and political predictability have been burst open leading to a flood of insecurity, third world style poverty and perhaps most importantly for Atzmon, the poverty of ideas. Atzmon who has previously written about his personal struggles with and opposition to Jewish identity politics inThe Wandering Who, takes his dialectical approach further, subjectingmany contemporary and post-modern trends to the same scrutiny. Such trends include, post-modernism, Cultural Marxism, post-Freudian social theory, the sexual identity agenda, post-modern attitudes to race and religion and the so-called populist political phenomena of Brexit and Donald Trump. Atzmon calls his book a post-political manifesto, but it could equally be called a post-dogma manifesto. Atzmon laments a western world that has forsaken the Socratic method of embracing wisdom based on a combination of logic and ethics. Instead, Atzmon sees a western society obsessed with legal minutiae that he traces to strict Talmudic jurisprudence. The book is very much in the tradition of the great secular conservative leaning sceptics and metaphysicists of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Those who have read Nietzsche or Spengler will recognise familiar diagnosis to modern problems combined with Atzmons unique world view shaped by the rejection of the Zionist creeds of his Israeli place of birth. One might be so bold as to say that a great deal of geo-political philosophical commentary in the 21st century is largely shaped by people trying to either debunk or revise the manifestly ludicrous hypothesis ofFrancis Fukuyama. At the dawn of the 1990s, Fukuyama inThe End of History and the Last Man stated that history had ceased to move forward and was comfortably numbed to the neo-liberal realities that everyone had accepted. The problem is that not everyone accepted them and even those who did, have largely been failed by them both materially and spiritually. Atzmon doesnt merely lacerate the post-Fukuyama developments in themetaphysical crisis currently gripping an increasingly hysterical liberal western establishment, but instead explains the root of these problems from the perspective of an historic prism illuminated through a combination of late-modern cultural analysis and Atzmons own unique trials and tribulations with the crises inherent in intra-Zionist Jewish identity. I personally rarely recommend such books. I highly recommend this one.

Western Europe | Will the British government finally cancel a … – European Jewish Press

LONDON (EJP)—A minister in the British government has threatened to cancel a major Palestinian cultural festival in central Londonin July because of the organizers support for Palestinian terror group Hamas, The Jewish Chronicle reported. The two-day festival, entitled Palestine Expo 2017, is to be held at the Queen Elizabeth II Center in central London on July 8 and 9. It is set to provide a platform to a group of activistsknown for their consistent hate speech against Jews and Israel including one speaker who has described Jews as sleazy thieves. The clear support for Hamas of the organizers the Friends of Al-Aqsa (FOA), an Islamist organization based in Leicester led government minister Sajid Javid, who is in charge of communities and local government, to warn in a letter to the organizers that he was considering canceling the event citing: “concerns that your organisation and those connected with it have expressed public support for a proscribed organisation, namely Hamas, and that you have supported events at which Hamas and Hezbollah also proscribed have been praised. Ismail Patel, founder of Friends of Al-Aqsa, is closely linked to several Islamic organisations and has openly expressed support for Hamas in the past, calling the group “no terrorist organisation.” FOA has actively promoted boycotts of Israel and has hosted anti-Semitic musician Gilad Atzmon and Holocaust denier Paul Eisen on its website.

Aedon Cassiel, "Jewish Survival Strategies: An Interview …

2,359 words Editors Note: This interview was recently conducted by e-mail between Aedon Cassiel and Gilad Atzmon. Atzmons latest book, Being in Time: A Post-Political Manifesto, is being released tomorrow (May 24). In your work, who do you consider yourself to be speaking to? If you dont have a specific audience in mind, then my question is: if only one group of people could hear your message, who would you choose, and what would you have them do about it? This is important to me. I do not intend to speak to people of any specific persuasion. I am not an activist and have zero interest in political involvement. I am engaged in an intellectual search. Jews fascinate me their troubled history, their survival strategies, their overrepresentation in media, politics, banking, the Manhattan Project, the list of the one hundred worst landlords in New York City, academia, and their dominance in political lobbying. I am trying to identify the cultural roots at the core of all that. In short, I am interested in the metaphysics that forms the Jew rather than the Jew himself. I am after culture and ideology. The final third of Being in Time focuses on the idea of controlled opposition specifically, on the idea that Jews tend to both lead and manage criticism of Jews, even of criticism promulgated by other Jews, which has the effect of pushing non-Jews out of the sphere of the debate. Are your efforts another form of attempting to create a controlled opposition? Why or why not? Thanks for raising this crucial point. If Jewish survival strategy is as sophisticated as I try to suggest, then you and others must take extra caution with Jewish ideologists and ideologies. And yes, I suppose this applies to me, too. My work must be subject to criticism, including the criticism the book itself applies, and hopefully it will stand the test of reflexivity. What do you mean when you say that Jews are certainly not a race, nor even an ethnicity? What do you understand these two terms to mean? Is it that Jews consist of too many different unrelated groups to be fairly considered as a single collective, or do you mean to suggest that race and ethnicity are meaningless categories in general? Despite the fact that many Jews insist that they belong to one race and share one father, it is more likely that Jews have not formed a single continuum as far as ancestry, genetics, or biology are concerned. However, it is clear to me that despite the fact that Jews do not form a racial continuum, their politics are always, and I really mean always, racially oriented. You ask whether I believe that race and ethnicity are meaningless categories in general? Not at all. However, I am not an evolutionary scientist or an anthropologist, and the study of race or ethnicity isnt my domain. I dig into some philosophical questions having to do with Jewish identification. You discuss at length the sociological implications of extensive cognitive partitioning in Jewish society over time, and as a historical cause of this phenomena you talk about the practice of selective breeding in Jewish rabbinical culture. In fact, this is one of the key points to which your work repeatedly comes back. Yet, you seem to want to shy away from claiming that genetic influences are part of the explanation behind why these patterns persist. How could the cognitive partitioning in Jewish society involve genealogy without involving genes? It seems odd to specifically identify breeding patterns as being responsible for this development, and yet as you seem to deny that heredity is the method of transmission. What, then, do you think is the mechanism behind this phenomenas historical persistence? I have no doubt, as I state in Being in Time, that the European Jewish rabbinical meritocratic system can be understood as a eugenic project. I would be delighted to find out that an evolutionary scientist has decided to look into my theoretical model and produce a scientific study that would verify or refute my theoretical assumptions. Kevin MacDonald has produced the most important work on this topic to date, and the gross animosity he is subject to suggests that he is an Athenian truth-teller a critical philosophical mind. You prefer to talk about ability as a general term rather than using IQ as a specific instance or measurement of ability. What theories do you have about what is at the core of the superior average ability of Jews? In my work I do not provide facts or statistics. I am raising issues and you, the reader, my listener, are the facts. I produce an interpretation or analysis of a given situation, a set of problems in our current reality, and it is down to you to examine it, play with the ideas, and eventually make a judgment. I am troubled by IQ measurement without regard to scientific debate over how to measure IQ. Ability can be judged by a persons achievements or merits. John Coltrane achieved more than any other saxophonist. I do not need to see his IQ results. Would Donald Trump score a higher result than Hillary Clinton on an IQ test? I doubt it somehow. Yet he was certainly more able to win the election. The reason I refer to ability is because for me, the crucial insight made by Richard Herrnstein and The Bell Curve was that they discerned that America was heading towards a cognitive partitioning. Herrnstein was an academic genius with significant ability. The Bell Curve could have saved the American people, but the book was effectually burned by the favorite Left icons: people like Noam Chomsky, academic fraudster Stephen J. Gould, and others. I allow myself to argue that Gould, Chomsky, and those others who trashed The Bell Curve bear direct responsibility for the dystopia in which we live. For me, the issues of the validity of IQ measurement and comparisons between races were side matters. The Bell Curves prophetic warnings about cognitive partitioning addressed a topic that has become the core of the oppressive reality in which we live. Would you say that its rational for Jews of higher ability to want to keep their society focused towards increased cognitive partitioning? I find it hard to verify whether it is the result of any conscious decision. What I argue in Being in Time is slightly different. I contend that since America and the West have evolved into cognitively divided environments, and since (Ashkenazi) Jews are accustomed to these conditions, it is hardly surprising that the Jewish Ashkenazi elite is prominent. In the book, you frequently express a wish to see a return to manufacturing. I agree that this has to be a part of the picture, but presumably you wouldnt advocate sending academics out to work in factories and fields, for example. So in your view, what precisely would the full dissolution of cognitive partitioning entail, in practical terms? What would we have to do, and how long would it take, and what would the main difficulties be? I believe that the structure of society will change radically. I do not think that society needs millions of unemployed Gender Studies graduates. For society to be functional, production and agriculture must be reinstated. Higher education must be free for those who are qualified. A functional society must decide what are its primary needs, e.g., how many new doctors are needed, how many engineers, philosophers, feminist scholars, or saxophonists? Academia should be set to provide this education for free and at the highest possible level. This would mean planning. This also suggests that academia wouldnt continue to operate as a self-serving industry. And yes, if industry, manufacturing, and production are starting to roll, we may find some very intelligent people involved. I do not see this as a negative development. Quite the opposite; society will once again be diverse for real. Isnt that what the progressives have been promising us for decades? How extensive do you think the historical influence of identity politics would have been in an American society that never invited Jews in? Good question, but unfortunately I have no answer. However, I would mention that identity politics operates as a cosmopolitan, revolutionary ideology. In other words, you do not need to be present in a place to spread the ideology. Would American society have freed the slaves, or given women the vote as quickly, without the influence of Jews? Would feminism have become as radical and divisive? We have to be careful here. We have to differentiate between political acts that unite us as humans and those which break us up into tribes. The abolition of slavery was an American political project that was partially motivated by ethical reasoning. The same applies to womens rights. However, radical feminism and lesbian separatism are as separatist as Jewish identity politics (Zionism as well as anti). They are biologically-oriented identitarian thoughts that are set to maintain a fragmented, sectarian social environment. Without identity politics, would black-white relations hold as much tension as they do today? And if Jews both helped press the legitimate form of early identity politics to achieve their aims faster, and held on by the skin of their teeth as identity politics outlived its purpose and became toxic, how can we even begin to analyze the net impact of these two diverging phenomena? I guess that this is exactly what I attempt to do in Being in Time: I try to dissect the corrosive factors that broke us into sectors. Your analysis seems to be that Jews have been a leading force in promoting identity politics as a conscious or subconscious means to divide and fracture society in order to normalize the sense of homelessness throughout society that they feel, to ensure that no one else is allowed to have any stronger sense of belonging than they do. If the root behind the effort to promote this kind of division is the Jewish sense of homelessness, then why isnt giving Jews a home to take away that underlying feeling of homelessness not a viable answer to the situation? I actually believe that allocating a national homeland for the Jews was a great idea. I argue that early Zionism was a consistent and coherent movement that was highly effective in its ability to diagnose the Jewish problem and cultural symptoms. Yet, the failure of Zionism suggests that planet Earth may not be a suitable place for such a homeland. Zionism has proven that, despite its initial promise to turn the Jews into people like all other people, the Israelis didnt manage to develop an empathic notion of otherness. Their treatment of the Palestinians proves this point beyond doubt. Israel also fails to love its neighbors. In fact, along with its dedicated Jewish lobbies (AIPAC, CRIFF, CFI, etc.), it relentlessly pushes for global conflicts (Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran, etc.). Let me make it as clear as I can, though I am accused by some Zionists of reopening the Jewish question: I fully acknowledge that I do not have a solution for the problems above, nor am I going to try to solve these problems. Lets talk about how intentional you think these Jewish tendencies towards fomenting division are. For instance, Tim Wise is an anti-racist activist who travels around lecturing about giving up white privilege, and challenging everyone else to give up their privileges as he has given up his own. Wise never openly identifies as a Jew, and he speaks about himself as if he were of white European origins. Is it meaningful to talk about someone like Tim Wise, who is of Jewish descent but identifies himself neither religiously nor politically as a Jew or as Jewish? In The Wandering Who?, I restricted my analysis to those who identify themselves primarily as Jews. This was a relatively easy task, and it helped to clarify that the Zionist and the so-called anti are one. In Being in Time, I extended my scope. I am, once again, talking about the Athens/Jerusalem dichotomy. Jerusalemites always know what is kosher and who is treif (basket of deplorables). Progressives behave as a bunch of Jerusalemites who subscribe to secular chosenism. They attribute to themselves a special sense of superiority and at the same time look down on the so-called reactionary. Tim Wise and other prog-preachers should self-reflect. He should ask himself why he thinks in racial categories. He should wonder why he subscribes to binary thinking that resembles the Jew/Goy, Kosher/Treif. Can he love his white neighbor? While Jerusalem is a form of obedience, Athens is a task, it is a hard job. It involves constant dynamic conceptual shifting intellectually, mentally, spiritually, and ethically. Do you think someone like Tim Wise is either consciously aware of, or consciously intending, to create the divisive outcomes caused by his style of identity politics? To what extent is any of this conscious? I really do not know. My role as a philosopher is to refine the questions rather than dictating answers. I certainly believe that these are the kind of questions that Wise should ask himself and that others are entitled to ask of him. In fact, these are the kind of questions each of us ought to ponder. This question isnt as focused inside your main line of argument as my others are, but it crossed my mind as I was reading. Is there any reason why Jewish influence over divisive forms of feminism, for example, would be as significant as it was, and yet Jews have not or to my knowledge, they havent yet co-opted the so-called mens rights movement, or mens rights activism? Why would involvement in feminism serve Jewish interests, but not involvement in MRA ideologies? Great question. Otto Weininger insisted that the Jewish man was actually a woman. Maybe this is the answer to your question. Maybe the reason I decided to stop being a Jew was because I didnt want to be a woman. I probably have to look into that for a while. Brother, you cant imagine how much I enjoyed addressing your insightful questions. Peace.
