About that White Nationalist Dirty Bomb

It doesn’t get much more absurd than this. 

The hyper-exaggerated threat of white supremacy has taken a serious turn—the racists now want a dirty bomb and are working in that direction with their very own Atomwaffen. 

It doesn’t get much more absurd than this. 

In 2004 and 2013, according to a report posted by Foreign Policy, “the FBI arrested two white supremacists interested in acquiring and detonating a dirty bomb.”

Moreover, these are not “lone wolves.” They are part of an extremist network bound by white supremacist ideology, far-right hate, and online indoctrination. And there is no shortage of evidence that they want to acquire their own radioactive weapons.

The evidence? Two disparate incidents nearly a decade apart by accused white supremacists allegedly in possession of radiological material and instructions for constructing a dirty bomb. 

This is a repeat of what the national security state said about Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda: they worked on a dirty bomb. There is absolutely no evidence al-Qaeda ever had nuclear material, same as there is no evidence Saddam had WMDs. Both of these lies were used to escalate and project the manufactured war on terror. 

The idea is to instill a pervasive fear in the populace. How do they know that white guy with a tattoo at Walmart isn’t a terrorist “radicalized” by the internet and conspiracy theories. 

The idea is to make us afraid of each other and forget the real source of our problem—a ruthless Machiavellian corporate state using high-tech propaganda, staged and orchestrated events, black and white ops and fronts to shape the sociopolitical landscape and dominate global economics. 

Although Donald Trump is a total failure and predictably jettisoned most of his campaign promises the moment he took office, the reaction to his victory by the establishment demonstrates how seriously they take the interruption and audacity of this crude outlier and his basket of deplorables. 

And the deplorables? They’re white nationalists, formerly white supremacists, before that KKK, prior to that under a rock somewhere. This point is driven home continually in The New York Times and The Washington Post: Trump is a racist, his supporters are racist, every single one a race supremacist, misogynist, redneck living and breeding dangerously in flyover country.

In fact, the average deplorable—and just about everybody else—works harder and longer while the middle-class shrinks and wealth is sucked upward into the coffers of corporations and banks. The average deplorable is sick and tired of an expensive, inefficient, scandal-wracked, partisan and politically divided government ignoring the people. They’re afraid of the future because that future terminates in endless debt owed to cover for today and yesterday’s bankster gambling debts, wars, and the ever-ongoing production of killing machinery. 

Maybe a few thousand out of millions and millions are white supremacists and a small number of them are criminals, same kind of dynamic in any other ethnic group. 

For obvious political purpose, many non-white ethnic groups were systematically given special status by the state decades ago. It’s argued this special status is required because the various racially collectivized groups are endangered by the majority. 

Due to this, it is no longer simply in bad taste to denigrate a government-designated special status group. It is now a red flag indicating probable terrorist activity, which can then be prevented in precrime fashion by the state and its national security apparatus. 

After 9/11, that enemy was over there, and although the propaganda media pounded home the narrative that Americans would become the targets of terrorists at any given moment, most Americans didn’t really give the idea too much thought as the country moved away from September 11. Polls show the economy and healthcare as the primary concern. Part of the failure is due to the fact the Muslim-Arab threat engineered by the government was perceived as something over there, not here at home. 

Now we’re told it is here. If the state can convince America there is a white nationalist problem, then nobody is safe. Paranoia becomes a tool for shaping public perceptions through corporate mass media. Lawmakers make laws outlawing “hate speech” based on vague description (for instance, “white nationalist” could be anyone who is white and perceived as patriotic and supporting the Americanized version of European civilization, which is portrayed as racist, sexist, colonialist, and white-entitled by some of the ethnic groups with special rights granted by the state for political reasons). 

The political discussion in America, if we can call it that, is strident and polarized to the extreme. It’s worse than it was during the Vietnam War. I witnessed all of that and this is far worse, especially with an economic tsunami bearing down on us. 

Both Democrats and Republicans are going to pile on this white nationalist thing—which is nothing but another psyop on the American people. The state and military and law enforcement agencies down to militarized local police are gearing up to confront an organized white menace looking for revenge on the victimhood special status folks—and in the process, as usual, missing the real source of their growing misery.

Ever since the national security state took over after the Second World War, we have weathered a series of evil adversaries—Stalin,  Khrushchev, the entire Red Menace for more than thirty years, Castro, then the intrepid Viet Cong, followed by Saddam, Osama bin Laden, various spin-offs on the Wahhabi theme, and now the Hitler-loving Nazis, white supremacists, nationalists, nativists, deplorables.  

The psychopathic elite and their national security state juggernaut of death and suffering are in constant and insatiable need of enemies and two minutes hate. How better to put the finishing touches on a full-blown surveillance and police state than crowing repeatedly about the terrorist who may be your next-door neighbor.

FBI Orchestrated Terror Plots to Frame Patsies as White Nationalist Terrorists

COINTELPRO-esque fake terror plots to take out counter-narratives.

Now that distrust of government narratives—the prime example being 9/11—make you a far rightwing white nationalist terrorist, according to the FBI, let’s look at what we can expect in the weeks and months ahead.

The FBI, America’s secret political police, is known for arranging fake terror attacks to alarm the public and keep the war on terror moving along and dominating headlines. Recall the case of Jerry Drake Varnell, a 23-year-old diagnosed schizophrenic, the FBI tried to turn into a rightwing terrorist back in 2017. 

From PCMD News: 

In a June meeting with the agent, according to FBI documents, Varnell described himself as a believer in “Three Percenter” ideology, a right-wing group claiming to be committed to standing against and exposing corruption and injustice.

The plan was to replicate the Oklahoma City bombing and have the FBI rush in at the last minute and save the day. In order to do this, the patsy would be of diminished capacity. 

Varnell’s family issued the following statement in August of 2017:

We as a family are extremely distraught about this situation with our son Jerry Drake Varnell, but what the public must understand is that he is a paranoid schizophrenic and is extremely susceptible to different types of ideology that normal people would deem immoral. Underneath his condition, he is a sweet-hearted person and we are extremely shocked that this event has happened. However, what truly has us flabbergasted is the fact that the FBI knew he was schizophrenic. The State of Oklahoma found him mentally incompetent and we, his parents have legal guardianship over him by the Court. These documents are sealed from the public, which is why no news media outlet has been able to obtain them. The FBI clearly knew that he was schizophrenic because they have gathered every ounce of information on him. 

The fact Varnell is mentally ill and incapable of building a bomb was buried by screaming headlines praising the FBI for preventing a fake terror attack it engineered. 

It’s obvious what we are seeing here. The ill-defined terms “white nationalist” and “conspiracy theorist” are being equated with hatred and violence, thus a national security threat. 

Because “white supremacist” violence is minor when compared to the far larger danger of violence in Chicago and other American cities, scary news reports, exaggerated statistics, and the image of goose-stepping and torch-bearing Nazis are required, along with FBI entrapment operations, to get consensus on breaking down doors, planting evidence, dispatching informers, and instigating violence like it did during COINTELPRO some forty-odd years ago. 

Somewhere along the line an FBI bomb will detonate, as it did during the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and this will shape-shift into consensus to crack down on “white nationalists,” now conflated to include Alt-righters, conspiracy theorists, and just about anybody who doesn’t believe slap-dashed government narratives on a variety of issues.

The FBI, of course, will not be knocking down the door of every Alt-righter posting on social media. It will persecute the figureheads and this will send the message that disagreeing and exercising the right to free speech will get you locked in the crosshairs of the state and its media.

Rep. McCaul Struggles to Keep War On Terror Alive

If the “war on terror” is to continue the AUMF must remain in the NDAA

Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas, minority leader of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, is struggling to keep Bush’s unconstitutional AUMF in place. If the no-end-in-sight “war on terror” is to continue and the AUMF is to remain embedded in the NDAA, McCaul must defeat the enemies of forever war.

In other words, a single committee, not a majority of Congress, will decide what country to invade and under what false pretext, never mind the presence on the committee of that troublesome freshwoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Somali woman Trump told to get the hell out of his version of a MAGA-ified America.

If we follow the logic here, the power to declare war is reserved for the majority leader, Rep. Eliot Engel, your standard liberal on social issues and a “hawk” (read: neocon) on foreign policy. Engel is one of Israel’s boldest advocates of theft and human rights abuse.

Back in January during a fundraiser hosted by Helene and Robert Rothenberg in Woodmere, New York, Engel “reassured the some 40 attendees that bipartisan support for Israel would be maintained in the 116th Congress” and said the “Golan Heights is part of Israel and should remain part of Israel for strategic purposes,” according to The Times of Israel.

Robert Rothenberg is an executive board member of of the America–Israel Friendship League, a “non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening ties between Americans and Israelis based on [selectively] shared democratic values. The AIFL brings Americans of all faiths to Israel, and Israelis of all faiths (Jews, Christians and Muslims) to the United States,” according to Wikipedia. It was created by neocon mentor Senator “Scoop” Jackson and Nelson Rockefeller.

So there is no question about the loyalty of the financial elite in regard to Israel, it should be noted that “AIFL leaders were among those who rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange when the exchange celebrated its fifth annual Israel Day.”

This is a standard boilerplate—“enemies that continue to threaten our nation, our people, and our allies,” a supposed threat to the people of America being virtually nonexistent (despite efforts by the FBI) and the allies in question happen to be Israel and its unlikely partner, Saudi Arabia.

Both al-Qaeda and its ancestor the Islamic State were handcrafted by the CIA and US military intelligence. I’ve covered this territory on numerous occasions, but if you need a primer, read Garikai Chengu’s “America Created Al-Qaeda and the ISIS Terror Group.

With Engel in the majority position and McCaul in the minority, we can expect some rickety unconstitutional framework to be slapped into place to keep the war on terror (the war against Israel’s enemies) going until it finally and inevitably crashes, either through economic collapse or a final and decisive military defeat. I believe the former will arrive before the latter. Either way, the American people will be spectators in the bleachers.

Finally, so as there isn’t a question of where McCaul’s loyalty lies, consider the following tweet.
