#DonaldTrump accused of launching US version of #HitlerYouth

It seems the UK’s Johnson government isn’t the only political organisation copying whole chapters from the Nazi playbook.

US President Donald Trump has announced a plan to set up what critics have already dubbed his own version of the Hitler Youth – the scheme that was used to indoctrinate millions of German youngsters into Nazism in the 1930s and 40s.

The plan was announced in a Constitution Day speech at the White House Conference on American History at the National Archives Museum. Here’s CNN:

“We must clear away the web of twisted lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world,” Trump said.

The President also called The New York Times’ 1619 Project, a Pulitzer Prize-winning project aimed at teaching American students about slavery, “toxic propaganda.”

In an apparent countering of the project’s narrative, Trump announced that he would be establishing a “national commission to promote patriotic education” called the 1776 Commission.

Apparently he said he wanted to counter “the liberal indoctrination” – mark that word – “of America’s youth”. But isn’t “indoctrination” exactly what he’s planning to do to them?

That’s another classic ploy of the Johnson government – doing something questionable but accusing somebody else of the crime.

It didn’t work – as these tweets demonstrate:

It seems Trump wants to create a new generation of stormtroopers for his far-right ideology.

Hitler’s version of that was nicknamed the Brown Shirts.

Perhaps we could call anyone who signs up to this the “Brown Shorts”?

In all seriousness, though, this is a terrifying development.

It shows that the most powerful nation on the planet is on the brink of totalitarianism. Will its citizens choose sanity in the election this November?

Nazanin to go back before Iranian court to face new charges – linked to Johnson’s blunder

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe: this wrongly-jailed woman has become a pawn in an international power struggle.


Just when it seemed Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s Iranian prison ordeal was coming to an end, she’s being dragged back into court.

And that country’s officials have taken great pleasure in letting us know that her plight is due to blundering Boris Johnson, the UK’s prime muppet.

Johnson was the idiot who blurted out in Parliament – in 2017, when he was Foreign Secretary – that Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe had been “training journalists”.

She had been doing nothing of the kind.

A project manager with the Thomson Reuters Foundation, she had been doing nothing more sinister than visiting her family for the Persian New Year celebration when she was arrested in 2016.

But the Iranian authorities seized on Johnson’s idiotic remark and threatened to use it to add five more years to her five-year prison sentence.

Now – three years after Johnson misspoke, it seems they have decided to follow through on the threat:

Richard Ratcliffe said his wife will appear in court on Sunday accused of “spreading propaganda against the regime” in Iran.

Apparently that’s how they describe the teaching of journalism – which she wasn’t doing in any event.

Of course we all know that Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s imprisonment has more to do with the £400 million that the UK government owes to Iran.

It could not be paid before because of international sanctions – but when Boris Johnson’s career was in danger, it seems such concerns evaporated.

How contrary, then, for us to find that the money has not been paid, apparently because Johnson doesn’t want to upset Donald Trump.

Johnson, it seems, wanted to wait until after the US presidential election on November 3 because he wanted to know whether Trump would still be US president before taking action.

So the Iranian decision to go back to court now has put him in a particularly sticky situation.

Will he pay up and get Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe back?

Or will he delay, to stay on the right side of Donald Trump?

I think we all know the answer to that. Johnson is the runt of international politics.

When powerful people squabble, it is always the innocents who suffer.

Is it true that Boris Johnson won’t help free Nazanin for fear of offending Donald Trump now?

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe: Boris Johnson has botched attempts to have her released for most of her wrongfully-imposed five-year prison sentence.

Boris Johnson can say what he likes but it is starting to seem that he has some kind of grudge against Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

The British-Iranian woman, who was imprisoned in Iran in April 2016 on an apparently trumped-up charge, has been seeking the UK government’s help to release her for years.

But in this effort, Johnson seems to be her nemesis.

In November 2017, as foreign secretary, he told MPs Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe had been imprisoned for “simply teaching people journalism” – boneheadedly suggesting that she had committed the very act for which the Iranian authorities had imprisoned her.

In fact, Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe was a project manager with a charity and was in Iran to visit her family for Nowruz, the Persian New Year. She is not a journalist and has never trained them.

As a result of Johnson’s imbecility, she was dragged back to court and threatened with a further five years in jail.

Soon after, it was announced that the UK would pay Iran £400 million that is owed to that country but could not be paid because of international sanctions.

That money suddenly became available, in the opinion of many, because Johnson’s career was in danger and it might make the Iranian authorities more open to the idea of releasing Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

Now we discover that after almost three years, the money has not moved – and that Johnson might be stalling because he fears offending Donald Trump.

What does he have to do with it?

Lawyers for Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe say a High Court hearing on whether the payment may be carried out has been delayed until November 3 – the day after the US presidential election.

This suggests that Johnson wants to know whether Trump will still be president before taking any action.

According to The Independent:

Donald Trump has taken a hard line against Iran, including breaking an international agreement on the country’s nuclear programme signed by his predecessor. The US also takes a dim view of its allies working with Iran and has moved to try and section [I think it means sanction] European companies that do business there.

So Boris Johnson is admitting that, as long as he is prime minister, the UK will be an international weakling.

Perhaps he thinks that Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe has spent so long in prison now – her sentence is due to end in April next year – that it won’t make much of a difference.

One wonders whether he bothered to think of her in prison, while he enjoyed his luxury holiday in the tropics last Christmas – or even if he spared her a thought while he was “glamping” (I believe it is called) in Scotland. It seems doubtful. He is far too interested in himself.

Previous – Tory – prime ministers would have threatened war against any nation holding a British subject prisoner if they felt it was unwarranted, and have done so.

But Johnson is happy to throw his fellow Brits to the dogs so he can suck up to someone he thinks is bigger than he is.

Supine Sunak set to axe ‘Facebook tax’ because he’s scared of big, nasty Donald Trump

Rishi Sunak: ‘Please don’t force us to eat your diseased chicken, Mr Trump! Look – we’ll cancel our tax on your tech companies! They can take as much money as they like from operating in our country and we won’t ask for a penny! Will that persuade you, Mr Trump? Mr Trump? Are you there..?’

Could there be a more blatant display of the UK’s newfound powerLESSness in the world?

The UK imposed a tax on tech companies like Facebook last year, expecting to bring in £500 million per year from firms that make more than £25 million each and would otherwise pay very little indeed.

But now Rishi Sunak is reportedly planning to axe it, in the hope that doing so will encourage Donald Trump not to insist on sending chlorinated chicken to the UK.

Sunak doesn’t even have the bargaining power to say he’ll do it on condition that Trump relents on his determination to foist food poisoning on the United Kingdom.

The justification to the rest of us? “Oh, it’s more trouble than it’s worth.”

I don’t know about that. £500 million is a lot of money to most of us.

The whole situation is pathetic.

The Johnson government, in the footsteps of Theresa May and David Cameron, has reduced Britain from Greatness to a state that can only be described as Little.

George Floyd death: asphyxia finding creates potentially catastrophic collapse of trust

Trump: while all this is going on, he’s been sitting in a White House bunker, writing incendiary tweets that could burn down his country.

People in the United States cannot trust their police or the services who work for them, after a private post-mortem found that he was asphyxiated by Minneapolis police officers.

The county medical examiner had previously claimed that the death of George Floyd was caused by the combined effects of being restrained, underlying health conditions, including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease, and potential intoxicants in his system.

Now we hear that this was not true.

It means the people of the United States cannot trust the officers they appoint to keep the law – either to enforce it properly or to tell the truth about it when others have failed in that duty.

In such circumstances, they cannot afford to trust in those who provide the services they fund. People of colour must feel particularly at risk.

This has happened in the term of exactly the wrong president.

Whereas Barack Obama (for example) might have agreed that there are serious problems with the authorities in Minneapolis, authorised an investigation and promised to get to the bottom of it, Americans have to face whatever decision Donald Trump makes instead.

He is likely to try to brazen it out – pretend that the county medical examiner’s finding was right and threaten action against anyone who says otherwise. In other words, he is likely to make a terrible situation disastrous.

If he’s not careful – and we know he isn’t – Trump could turn every US citizen against their neighbours. People across that country have already participated in violent confrontations over this.

There’s nothing to stop Trump from escalating that violence catastrophically. For example:

How is that helping?

And then there’s the fact that this is happening in the middle of the worst disease pandemic in a century.

If Trump is stupid enough to turn the American people against each other, then they’ll probably spread the virus like wildfire.

And – thanks to Trump’s daft-headed policies – the death count in the States is already higher than anywhere else in the world.

D-Notice over Skripal poisoning suggests the information we’ve been given was false

Yulia Skripal (right) and her father Sergei: Attacked to hide lies about Trump?

Isn’t it interesting that the news media were told to hide the fact that an intelligence officer dealing with the Skripals worked for Orbis Business International!

It’s also interesting that the D-Notice was ineffective as a person who never received it – former UK ambassador Craig Murray – gave the game away on his blog.

He wrote: “There is no doubt that Skripal was feeding secrets to MI6 … and at the the time that Pablo Miller, another member of Orbis Intelligence, was also an MI6 officer in Russia and directly recruiting agents. It is widely reported on the web and in US media that it was Miller who first recruited Skripal. My own ex-MI6 sources tell me that is not quite true as Skripal was “walk-in”, but that Miller certainly was involved in running Skripal for a while… It is again widely alleged on the web that [Miller was] a consultant for Orbis Intelligence and a consultant to the FCO and – wait for it – with an address in Salisbury.

“It was of course … Orbis Intelligence who produced for the Clinton camp the sensationalist dossier on Trump links with Russia … that is a key part of the “Russiagate” affair gripping the US political classes. The extraordinary thing about this is that the Orbis dossier is obvious nonsense which anybody with a professional background can completely demolish… [The] motive was, like Skripal’s in selling his secrets, cash pure and simple.

“I do not know for certain that Pablo Miller helped knock together the … dossier on Trump, but it seems very probable given he also served for MI6 in Russia and was working for Orbis. And it seems to me even more probable that Sergei Skripal contributed to the Orbis Intelligence dossier on Trump… Who better to lend a little corroborative verisimilitude in these circumstances than … old source Skripal?”

So we now have several possible reasons for the Skripal poisoning – and they point to the United States – not to Russia.

Did it happen to cover up the source of the information in the Trump-Russia dossier?

Did it happen to hide the possibility that the information in the dossier was false?

Was it revenge for Skripal feeding the intelligence services a pack of lies in return for a fat wodge of cash?

And why has there been no new information on the Skripals in weeks?

The Defence and Security Media Advisory Committee (DSMA) – a Governmental body – issued a so-called D-Notice requesting the censorship of numerous mainstream media outlets regarding the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in Salisbury on the fourth of March this year, allegedly by Russia, using the Novichok nerve agent. Sergei Skripal was a double agent for the UK who was obtained and brought to Britain under a ‘spy-swap scheme’ in 2010. The circumstances surrounding his alleged poisoning have been translucent at best, and altogether weird.

It now appears to be the case that the media was censored in how and what it reported of the Skripal poisoning in the days following its revelation.

A D-Notice is, essentially, an instruction issued by the DSMA to the media not to publish matters of certain sensitivity.

The D-Notice issued on 7 March 2018, three days after the Skripal poisoning happened, stated the following:

“Private and Confidential: Not for Publication, Broadcast or for use on Social Media TO ALL EDITORS The issue surrounding the identify of a former MI6 informer, Sergei Skripal, is already widely available in the public domain. However, the identifies of intelligence agency personnel associated with Sergei Skripal are not yet widely available in the public domain. The provisions of DSMA Notice 05 therefore apply to these identities. DSMA Notice 05 inter alia advises editors against the: ‘inadvertent disclosure of Sensitive Personnel Information (SPI) that reveals the identity, location or contact details of personnel (and their family members) who have security, intelligence and/or counter-terrorist backgrounds, including members of the UK Security and Intelligence Agencies, MOD and Specials Forces.’”

The D-Notice instructs the media not to report on matters surrounding security personnel associated with Sergei Skripal.

The individual to whom the D-Notice refers is in fact one Pablo Miller. He is a former MI6 operative. The Telegraph has also previously published that Miller worked for Orbis Business International, a corporate intelligence consultancy.

Calls for Donald Trump to resign as US President reach crescendo

He isn’t welcome in the UK either: Anti-Trump protesters gathered outside Parliament as a debate took place on whether he should make a state visit to the UK [Image: AFP/Getty].

On the day the Trump administration announced it was disbanding the climate change advisory committee (Trump doesn’t believe in it), online calls for his resignation have been building to a crescendo.

His supporters are being told they are liars when they appear on television:

In response to the President’s comments about Charlottesville, this happened to his star on the Hollywood walk of fame:

What the Trump? US president defends Nazis and white supremacists

“Trump and Theresa new best friends,” tweeted Diane Abbott a few months ago. “Be afraid world. Be very afraid.”

This Writer is going to keep a decent stockpile of photographs showing Theresa May holding Donald Trump’s hand, because after this week, that’s all we’ll need to defeat the Conservatives in a UK general election.

It took Mr Trump – who is, let’s remember, the President of the United States and leader of the so-called “free world” – 60 hours to denounce the nazis and white supremacists who caused havoc, injury and death at a demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia at the weekend.

Then he held a press conference and said this:

So he has rowed back on everything he said before and is now defending the indefensible with a claim that the people protesting against their violence, bigotry and hatred were also to blame.

How do we feel about that, Twitter?

Here’s a good exchange:

https://twitter.com/marthasydenham/status/897557529701613570

And what about Trump’s claim that there were “fine people” on both sides?

I’m with Gorgeous George on this. Moving on:

Ah, but they’re not Nazis in today’s politically-correct world. They’re the “alt-right”. What do we think about that?

That’s already happened, in fact:

https://twitter.com/CarlBeijer/status/897554684277252096

Trump in fact equated the “bad” right-wingers with the “violent” left (and who says they were left-wing, anyway? You don’t have to be a socialist to hate nazi-saluting morons).

Here’s the reception he got:

More incisive, perhaps, are the following, which cut to the heart of the matter with satire.

https://twitter.com/theyearofelan/status/897618856084205568

In fairness, Trump did receive some praise for the new position he has taken. It came from the Ku Klux Klan:

Here’s the connection with Theresa May:

Last word goes to Rav Danya Ruttenberg, for obvious reasons, considering this:

In fact, congregants at the Charlottesville synagogue were put in fear for their safety by people apparently wearing the uniform of a white supremacist group.

There is strong language in this final tweet so those of you who don’t like that sort of thing might want to stop reading now.

I wait with baited breath for Trump’s abject apology to his country’s Jewish community.

All of the above may mask a deeply unpleasant truth, though – which is that the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave is increasingly becoming the very enemy it defeated in 1945.

Ethnic minorities – including Jews – are being persecuted.

And the political leader of the country is speaking up for the aggressors.

We know where this ends, if it is allowed to continue.

Let’s put a stop to it right now.

America, the world is waiting for you to do what must be done.

Fraud lawsuits relating to Trump University settled for $25m – but it doesn’t disprove guilt

Former students who filed the suit said they were lured by false promises to pay up to $35,000 to learn Donald Trump’s real estate investing ‘secrets’ [Image: Bebeto Matthews/AP].

Settling a lawsuit out of court doesn’t disprove a case against a defendant, you know.

That’s especially true if the defendant said – as Donald Trump did, in March this year – that he never settles lawsuits out of court.

I’ve seen a few tweets about this that should put the case into context. Here’s just one:

Fair enough?

Donald Trump has settled fraud lawsuits relating to Trump University for $25m, removing a legal headache despite having pledged to fight the cases to the bitter end.

Lawyers for the president-elect settled the three lawsuits on Friday, averting the prospect of him testifying in a courtroom showdown which threatened to reveal more troubling details about the now defunct real estate course.
