Will Trump set the Mideast on fire to avoid treason charges?


By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

“Why now?”

That was the question the studio production guy asked me as he was wiring up my microphone for my debate with Richard Hellman. He was referring to Trump’s threat to set the Middle East on fire by declaring Jerusalem the eternal capital of Israel.

I explained that Trump is about to go down on treason charges. He is planning to burn down the Middle East to deflect attention away from Mike Flynn’s revelation that the Trump team, led by arch-Zionist Jared Kushner, committed treason by undermining the US position on the December 2016 UN Security Council Resolution 2334 condemning Israeli settlements. At that point Trump was not yet President. But acting treasonously on behalf of the State of Israel, Trump/Kushner ordered Flynn to lean on the Russians to get them to veto the same resolution that the US government, headed by Obama, was tacitly supporting.

This is what Mike Flynn lied to the FBI about. It’s called treason. No need to even bother with the Logan Act.

The Flynn prosecution offers America a much-need chance to clean house.

Every so-called “American” acting treasonously on behalf of Israel—starting with the White House and Congress, moving down through AIPAC, the Zionists infesting the mainstream media, the 500,000-strong Zionist Power Configuration (ZPC), all the way down to the bottom feeders like my mentally and emotionally challenged debate opponent Richard Hellman— needs to be prosecuted, sentenced, and summarily dealt with. Got that, Hellman? The real patriots are coming for you. Sooner or later, in this life or the next, you genocidal scumbags are going to pay for your crimes. And now it’s looking like it just might be sooner.



  1. Some factual references

    Israel’s 1980 annexation of East Jerusalem was unanimously rejected by the UN Security Council in Resolution 476 (June 30, 1980): “all legislative and administrative measures and actions taken by Israel, the Occupying Power, which purport to alter the character and status of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal validity and constitute a flagrant violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.”

    In accordance with the 1949 Fourth Geneva Convention, ratified by Israel, and further underscoring the illegality of the settlements, Part 2, Article 8, section B, paragraph viii of the Rome Statute of the International Court (1998) defines “the transfer directly or indirectly by the Occupying power of parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies ” as a War Crime, indictable by the International Criminal Court.

    On 24 February 2004, the U.S. State Department reaffirmed its earlier position in a report entitled Israel and the Occupied Territories, Country Reports on Human Rights Practices: “Israel occupied the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights after the 1967 War…. The international community does not recognize Israel’s sovereignty over any part of the occupied territories.”

    In its 2004 ruling, the International Court of Justice unanimously ruled that “No territorial acquisition resulting from the threat or use of force shall be recognized as legal.” The World Court denoted this principle a “corollary” of the U.N. Charter and as such “customary international law” and a “customary rule” binding on all member States of the United Nations.

    US Secretary of State, John Kerry: “The US views all of the settlements as illegitimate.” (13 August 2013, Reuters Video)

    British Foreign Secretary William Hague regarding Jewish settlements in the West Bank (5 April 2011): “This is not disputed territory. It is occupied Palestinian territory and ongoing settlement expansion is illegal under international law…”

    UN Security Council Resolution 2334, December 23, 2016: “Guided by the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, and reaffirming, inter alia, the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by force,
    “Reaffirming the obligation of Israel, the occupying Power, to abide scrupulously by its legal obligations and responsibilities under the Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, of 12 August 1949, and recalling the advisory opinion rendered on 9 July 2004 by the International Court of Justice,
    “Condemning all measures aimed at altering the demographic composition, character and status of the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, including, inter alia, the construction and expansion of settlements, transfer of Israeli settlers, confiscation of land, demolition of homes and displacement of Palestinian civilians, in violation of international humanitarian law and relevant resolutions,….”
    “1.Reaffirms that the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace;
    “2.Reiterates its demand that Israel immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem, and that it fully respect all of its legal obligations in this regard;
    “3. Underlines that it will not recognize any changes to the 4 June 1967 lines, including with regard to Jerusalem, other than those agreed by the parties through negotiations;..”

    There is no special provision in international law (e.g., the UN Charter, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, The Fourth Geneva Convention, the Rome Statute, which are binding on all UN members and came about in large measure as a result of horrors of WWII, including the slaughter of 6 million Jews) that enables Israel to violate it with impunity.

  2. Treason is as American as apple pie. When Reagan/Bush got away with their “October Surprise”, remember that doozy. Negotiated the release of Americans held in Tehran by promising weapons to Iran all purchased with cocaine profits. This was conducted before the November presidential vote. No one cared then, and not now. For all Reagan’s help he was rewarded with an assasination attempt designed by George Bush Sr. A crime also ignored. WTF?!!!

  3. The Moderator is a wonderful intelligent lady who should have a switch to cut off either side interrupting the other. Unindicted War Criminal Israel has violated all the rules and laws but been rewarded with State status while the Palestinians were given the shaft and still blamed for all the daily land thefts by Israel and other atrocities like the Israel police officer killing a captured person in cold blood and more. Israel has over played its hand. Sometimes it is better to keep one’s mouth shut. If the U.S. were pressured by its citizens to finally stop supporting this rogue international outlaw called Israel, the Arab countries could demolish it in a week or less. Does anyone really believe Israel would abide by any peace agreement without external armed force being applied to them?

  4. There were two grouping in the ancient Holy Land. Israel with Ten Tribes and Judea with two and the Levites. Israel dispersed to the ends of the earth and Judea moved with their Kabbalah and Talmud through Spain and Poland and New York, hooking up with the Turkic/Mongoloid Khazars along the way.

    Now the prescient Marist Catholic Order correctly identified the End of The Earth and declared a lovely spot up the Whanganui River in NZ/Aotearoa to be Jerusalem and so the Capital of Israel. Just google that to see and it has been there for 200 years. The National Anthem is called “God Defend New Zealand”, so keep your fingers crossed, we haven’t been invaded yet.

  5. Trump is going down and he knows it. The entire White House is in full panic mode as it appears Jared the jue will be next. Trump neither cares nor is he willing to admit he does wrong, the characteristic of a malignant narcissist. Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem will indeed spark more violence in the middle east but should Trump care? America has gotten itself waist deep in the big muddy and the big fool says to push on.
    The claims made by the zionists are entirely false and delusional. They have no claim to Jerusalem let alone to Palestine. The rest of the world knows this. It is a claim made into prophecy by the Talmudic zionists who obviously have been smoking something pretty darn powerful.
    I couldn’t even stand to listeb to that fat, bloated Washington, D.C. sewer dweller. Barret is correct. All those who signed the loyalty oath to israel are traitors and should be treated as such. Traitors all!
    Washington is digging its own grave, unfortunately it may also end up digging the world’s grave.
    Trump is clueless. A dangerous megalomaniac, lacking any moral fiber and corrupted to the core. This president needs to be impeached and removed ASAP. Otherwise he may just burn the rest of the planet. The what will all his little ignorant, brain dead trumpettes have to say?
    This is why nullification and secession is now necessary. The states need to secede from Washington and declare a new government. A non centralized government with nearly no power except that which is specifically spelled out in the Constitution.
    America needs to free itself from zionism and israel. The only thing these two understand is violence. let’s give them a double dose.

  6. Let us suppose that Trump is impeached. Would Pence be an improvement? Would any of the people on this list of Presidential Successors be an improvement? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_line_of_succession

    What, exactly, will improve if Trump is gone? I didn’t vote for Trump. I don’t support Trump. But is he really that much worse than any of the other clowns who have occupied the office in the last fifty years? More to the point, NONE of the successors is an improvement, and a couple would be far worse. So what is going to be achieved by removing Trump from office? If the idea is that the “rightful” president is Hillary “Corruption” Clinton, and she will be restored to her throne… It won’t happen.

    • The impeachment of Trump would have to be followed by the removal of Pence, the religious extremist.
      It would be better if a new election were held. One that would indicate whether or not any confidence in Washington still exists.
      I’m willing to bet there isn’t any.

    • Trumps only value is as a catalyst. When that purpose is no longer bearing fruit, then yes he must be removed. The power he has, and what he is doing with it, could leave a stain for decades or longer. There are no perfect answers, but if we are trying to stop a runaway train, then the last thing we want is someone stepping on the gas. Even Nixon was less harmful. If we are looking for a complete change then grass roots will be the focus, not the rotted fruit. Pence can be controlled and certainly is conversing through back channels by design from the onset.

  7. US Presidents have been setting the Middle East on fire for the cause of Greater Israel since the days of LBJ. Trump is just the latest in a long line of bipartisan asshats to kowtow to the Israel Lobby, and spend US blood and treasure to “Make Israel Great Again” (though a complete lack of evidence suggests that ancient Israel was little more than a collection of mud huts occupied by goat molesting savages).

    • Since the days of LBJ? A lot longer than that my friend. Israhell was a concoction of the Corp. of London who wanted the precious . . . the oil, the black gold of the middle east and GOD forbid, the Muslims have all of it! Better get them Jews back in there to act as hall monitor. At least the Jews, Khazar throw-backs, AskeNAZI, eastern Jews . . . were “westernized.” That Manifest Destiny filled a lot of white male preachers’ pulpits on both sides of the pond, and it has worked to foster Israhell’s delusions for well over 100 years. Your last sentence sums up the mind-set to a tee. You do realize, however, that “ancient Israel,” would include many of the prophets. They were part of the “collection of mud huts occupied by goat molesting savages.” God have mercy on the brain dead.

  8. Republicans commit very strongly to push US over the edge every time they occupy the White House. However putting Middle East on fire is hardly something we can imagine other than what has been going on precisely over there for the past 15 years or so. It is on fire perpetually since 9/11, this is just one of the final cards revealing, the Jerusalem recognition would most probably put US on fire, rather than already Middle East which is in flames and ashes. Let’s try to explain setting Middle East on fire by Jerusalem recognition to some Syrian family surviving now in Istanbul dormitory and awaiting its second deportation (after watching their Syrian house pulverized and relatives slaughtered) based on EU ‘quota management’. Nobody in the US establishment will like this move if it happens as it is a dark territory so far unexplored. But maybe it will finally make a distinction between sheeps and goats within the US administration.

  9. He’s probably in too deep to volunteer anything. It would take some serious leverage, immunity, and financial support for him to turn whistleblower.

    That mechanism you speak of would be the type that is used inside CIA black sites on foreign soil. Or maybe Guantanamo Bay.

    You have my approval.

  10. I haven’t watched news casts or anything like this in a long time. It was pretty shocking. Just obnoxious. Why do grown adults talk over each other like children. The guy on the right kept repeating the same phrase over and over.

    I was waiting for the “i’m rubber; you’re glue”.

    Kevin was alright, but the other two were obnoxious children.

    • I take that back. Kevin just made a crack about his name. Everyone depicted should grow up. I’m about done with VT.

    • I would agree with you if there were no coherent arguments being expounded and it was JUST name-calling and interrupting. But this episode actually has a nice balance of reasonably well-structured (and important, and incendiary) arguments, all from one side of course, AND lots of hot-headed back-and-forth. As a neutral, unbiased TV critic, who recognizes that what audiences love most is professional wrestling, “survivor,” etc., I think this is damn good TV. Where else are you going to see people with such wildly opposing viewpoints going at it? Bravo, Press TV!

    • Kevin, the only thing missing are the masks worn by certain wrestlers and the choreographed take downs.
      And in this corner………Kevin Barret, the masked Avenger from Madison!
      Bring back the Sheik!

  11. Ran out of bandwidth, but highly approve of the strongly worded post, Doc.

    Top Drawer stuff.

    If Trump doesn’t give in to one form of leverage, like the impeachment threat, then I’m sure some other form, like exploits with Epstein, will twist his arm.

    I hope cooler heads prevail, but that everyone is braced for impact. Maybe Netanyahu will be taken out before it comes to war. Taken out by his corruption probe, that is…

    I doubt Trump wants to do much more than count and belly flop into his ill gotten gains, (((Scrooge MacDuck))) style.

    He’s a sociopath who will do and say anything to get what he wants.

    Typical Politician.

    Stay safe and keep up the good work.

    PS Do you think the 96 year old dude who writes for the Brodhead Paper about his exploits with Aramco drilling a dry well in the 60s, George Blakslee, is CIA?
