US State Department official’s 19 seconds of stupefied silence after questioned why Iran’s democracy is criticized when US supports Saud family dictatorship claiming to own a whole country, joining 3 previous tragic-comedies attempting to hide ongoing US rogue state empire

Career “diplomat” and twice US Ambassador to Middle East countries, 58-year-old Assistant Secretary of State Stuart Jones took 19 seconds to invent an “official” response to a press conference question of how the US can criticize Iran’s democracy while praising the dictatorial Saud family who claims to own a country. Video with James Corbett’s analysis:

Truthstream Media’s 8-minute analysis, including a history of such State Department official double-speaks:

Context: President Trump lies for more illegal Wars of Aggression on Syria, Iran

Trump, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and Stuart Jones traveled to Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Rome. President Trump addressed the Saud family and associated vassal states in a literal fire and brimstone speech that repeated criminal threats on Iran and Syria:

It (Iran) is a government that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing the destruction of Israel, death to America, and ruin for many leaders and nations in this room.

Among Iran’s most tragic and destabilizing interventions have been in Syria. Bolstered by Iran, Assad has committed unspeakable crimes, and the United States has taken firm action in response to the use of banned chemical weapons by the Assad Regime—launching 59 tomahawk missiles at the Syrian air base from where that murderous attack originated.

Those nuclear punchlines, thick in irony and psychological projection:

The following day, Trump held a press conference with Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel, who summarized the “chosen” position:

I believe that together we can roll back Iran’s march of aggression and terror in this region, and we can thwart Iran’s unbridled ambition to become a nuclear weapon state.

Trump affirmed: “…facing the threat of an Iranian regime that is threatening the region and causing so much violence and suffering.”

Iran’s Foreign Minister responded to the irony of Trump defending Saudi Arabia when its citizens were the majority of 9/11 terrorists in the official story, in agreement with an American 9/11 widow. Iran’s government could make stronger statements, of course, and one has to wonder at their lack of leadership in such an Emperor’s New Clothes condition.

This article explains, documents and proves Trump’s criminal lies and threats that continue illegal Wars of Aggression and Crimes Against Humanity of Presidents Obama and W. Bush (further history here, and my article series of such “official” fake news for war on Iran; explore here for Syria).

Context: repeated tragic-comic State Department statements revealing illegal rogue state empire

From August 2016Mark Toner is the US State Department’s Deputy Spokesperson (#2 to John Kirby) for the Bureau of Public Affairs. Yesterday, he opened their press conference with:

“Welcome. Good to see you in this exercise in transparency and democracy.”

Mr. Toner then exploded in wild laughter.

A reporter’s retort: “Is that what this is? I thought it was an exercise in spin and obfuscation”:

Five minutes of Toner’s boss, John Kirby, proving spin and obfuscation:

Another tragic-comic minute of Kirby (explanation here) refuting transparency and democratic commitment for truth:

The millions killed, billions harmed, and trillions looted make this farce criminal, not a laughing matter.

Professionals can easily explain, document, and prove US rogue state crimes are no joke, with the following providing a definition then a “top ten” list of state crimes requiring arrests in a constitutional republic:

  1. Introduction to define ‘rogue state’ as perfect match with US illegal Wars of Aggression, Crimes Against Humanity, dictatorial government
  2. The US violated ~600 treaties with Native Americans to steal Native American land. A treaty is signed by a US President, approved by 2/3 vote of the US Senate, and under Article VI of the US Constitution becomes US “supreme Law.” These ongoing “in your face” violations of “supreme Law” became the precedent to typical hypocritical and unlawful US policies of the present.
  3. US President Polk lied to Congress (with their approval) to initiate War of Aggression on Mexico. The result was the US illegally stealing 40% of Mexico in 1848. Congress opposed Abraham Lincoln’s crystal-clear explanation as a member of Congress that the Adams-Onís Treaty placed the so-called “border dispute” 400 miles within land forever promised to Mexico and forever promised as outside any US claim.
  4. The US violated our treaty with Hawaii and stole their country in 1898.
  5. The US reneged on promises of freedom after the Spanish American War to impose colonialism on the Philippines, and install US-friendly dictators in Cuba. US military slaughtered resisters, calling them yesterday’s version of “terrorists.”
  6. The US entered WW1 upon no national security threat to the US, and imprisoned the 3rd party presidential candidate for challenging “official reasons” for war.
  7. The CIA had several covert wars; perhaps most important in today’s context of war on Iran: “Operation Ajax” that overthrew Iran’s democracy and installed a US-friendly and brutal dictator.  When that dictator was overthrown and Iran refused another, the US aided Iraq to unlawfully invade and attack Iran from 1980-1988; killing up to a million Iranians. If the US lied and acted twice to unlawfully overthrew Iran’s democracy within many of our own lifetimes, shouldn’t we assume first another lie-started unlawful war today?
  8. The Vietnam War followed US permission to cancel the election to unify the country. The US stopped democracy to keep a friendly government, and perhaps to have ongoing live weapons testing and development. War escalated with the Gulf of Tonkin incident,  deliberate provocation to manipulate a false-flag event for “defensive” war.
  9. Perhaps most disturbing is the King Family civil suit that found the US government guilty in the assassination of Dr. King (and here). Corporate media, including our text publishers, omit this history. The King family’s conclusion is that Martin was assassinated to prevent his “Occupy DC” plan beginning for the summer of 1968 to end his version of today’s wars.
  10. We now know from Congressional reports that all “reasons” for war with Iraq were known to be false as they were told.
  11. The two “reasons” for war with Iran are as false as the “reasons” for war with Iraq: Iran never threatened Israel, and Iran’s nuclear energy and medicine programs are IAEA-verified as completely safe and lawful.

Demanding arrests as the required and obvious public response:

The categories of crime include:

  1. Wars of Aggression (the worst crime a nation can commit).
  2. Likely treason for lying to US military, ordering unlawful attack and invasions of foreign lands, and causing thousands of US military deaths.
  3. Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing intentional policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).

US military, law enforcement, and all with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, face an endgame choice:

In just 90 seconds, former US Marine Ken O’Keefe powerfully states how you may choose to voice “very obvious solutions”: arrest the criminal leaders (video starts at 20:51, then finishes this episode of Cross Talk):

    Again, I must give the answer for all mankind

    I have been banned on every message board, for nothing, except the contents of this post. You can archive my posts here and see that there is next to nothing ban worthy. Therefore, I must Credit my enemy, the US government, because they must be watching? I am honored, because it is a Badge of Honor.


    Put 1-million Angry Protesters on WALL STREET and Short the Exchange to ZERO! Demand Change,Don`t Ask! Americans have full constitutional Authority: Rights to Bear Arms, Militia, Protest, Free Speech and Expression, And Citizens Arrest ( which, includes use of Force). Wall Street is Checkmate for the NWO.

    Do it and You will get “Anything and Everything” you Demand. The Founders of said movement will be made RICH off the MASSIVE SHORT, alone! YOU, America, Will Control the Worlds Stock Market. You will set the Price! You, the People, will have all the POWER!

    However, if you fail, America, and the “Above is your only Chance,” than in the End, they WILL BLAME YOU. A Government “by and for the people” ( you pay tax voluntarily: This is a Legal Matter) will blame the people for all the LOOTING, MURDER, WARS and Crimes committed under the name and seal of the US government. And, before Almighty GOD, well, Christians it may be enough to TAKE YOU WITH HIM ( SATAN) FOR SUPPORTING, AIDING and ABETTING!

    You can think I am Crazy, Fine, however, it is common for mankind to respond to solutions with such nonsense. They thought Jesus, Einstein, And Most Other Revolutionaries Crazy: Take your Pick. You all have to put aside your petty differences and work together or you will “all” hang “alone” and in darkness.

  • Forebearance

    No wonder everything is unraveling in the US: we have a government of overpaid incompetent boobs who can’t give a straight answer to any question.

  • Zartan

    Iran produces a lot of oil and just like Iraq, those who control the US government want to loot. If the American people do not topple this government it will cause their end. Nuclear war will come as a result of this lunatic government doing anything it pleases. Vladimir “the poodle” PUTIN cannot live forever.

    • blue579

      Iran is already in a state of NWO deep capture, western educated Rouhani, his PhD dissertation at a Glasgow university “The Flexibility of Sharia Law”, signed onto Agenda 2030 pledging to phase out fossil fuel use with major milestones goals to be reached at certain inflection points.

      The state of deep capture goes way back with IMF and BIS all over Iran for decades. As well, Khomeini had been a US asset since at least 1963, official documents and cables confirming this were released last year further bolstering the claims of whistle blowers that the embassy hostage crisis was a joint US-Iran operation.

      It’s Kabuki theater. Alt is not giving us the full context, the big pic.

      • Carl_Herman

        I agree, with many Persian friends certain of black state control and deals to keep Iran a patsy boogie man. As I wrote in the article:

        “Iran’s Foreign Minister responded to the irony of Trump defending Saudi Arabia when its citizens were the majority of 9/11 terrorists in the official story, in agreement with an American 9/11 widow. Iran’s government could make stronger statements, of course, and one has to wonder at their lack of leadership in such an Emperor’s New Clothes condition.”

        • blue579

          Well, a deep geopolitical researcher, imo, would eventually come to realize they are all in bed together and I wouldn’t even call Iran a patsy (assuming I understand the connotation here). As global mafia members having no problems with the TPTB behind the curtain, Iranian elites know what game is being played. Just as the Soviets knew why Kissinger, serving as Sec of State and NSA under Nixon, transferred advanced classified missile tech to USSR absurdly claiming, in reverse logic, the move would tame their expansionist ambitions. Then we have Hillary doing exactly the same, transferring advanced classified military tech to Skolkovo. Kissinger and Bill Clinton are members of the Trilateral Commission and Skolkovo is arguably a Trilateralist project with the assistance of Microsoft (Gates) and many other very powerful globalists with a focus on Silicon Valley.

      • Zartan

        Phasing out fossil fuels is a pipe-dream. The Technology does not exist, and the cost to re-tool, perhaps, after a Nuclear War? Iran will be Sacked Just like Iraq and puppets installed to divide the spoil.

        • blue579

          Tehran is already a UN Sustainable Smart City, connecting to the global smart grid, putting the finishing touches on BIS Basel II compliance with BIS and IMF committee members getting Iran up to speed to enter the new paradigm.

          Of course, the 2030 “post carbon”, “climate change” memes are ruses to create an Orwellian global police state prison planet.

          No nuclear war, that’s not how this elite n-dimensional chess game is being played. Iran was already a NWO asset when the Clinton admin ‘accidentally’ transferred classified nuclear weapon designs to Iran during Operation Merlin, which accelerated its program.

          There’s also the ‘inconvenient truth’ that for years both the US and Israel were quietly sending Iran advanced military parts and weapons (mostly for fighter jets) despite the sanctions and despite the absurd “axis of evil” label. In turn, these items were being transferred to Syria. (link below)

          US And Israel Quietly Provide Military Support And Parts To Iran, Which In Turn Is Arming Syria

          • Zartan

            Nobody plans a nuclear war it is the consequences of infighting and greed. They will eventually fall upon their own swords. Putin could be replaced or killed. Anything can happen. Their plans will fail. They will make fatal mistakes.

          • blue579

            You’re right, not all out nuclear, that’s Strangelovian. Although, there are mini nukes (James Perloff wrote something about this last year) and a possible demonstration nuke somewhere remote to scare the bejeezus out of the world and force them to submit to world govt – which was actually the theme of a Tennyson poem carried by Truman in his pocket for decades when he ordered nuclear weapon drops on Japan. However, I doubt that is likely.

            You have a terrific optimistic outlook and I kind of think along those lines in the very long run, an unwinding from hubris driven overreach. In the meantime, I’m very concerned about more horrific damage being done to societies and Mother Earth. Know your enemy, as Sun Tzu advises. It never hurts to be wise to what’s taking place behind the curtain and prepare for any and all curve balls. That would be London now, false flags providing cover for May to implement heavy censorship of the internet, as she proposed right before the terrorist strikes began.


          • Snow Monkey

            TY for identifying May’s call for control of the internet. That was the entire key to the event.

          • blue579

            Sure. …btw, an independent somewhat known blogger reported May’s moves before the recent spate of attacks (first link) and then we have to wonder about what’s being done while our eyes are focused elsewhere such as the recent big WTO trade treaty that alt didn’t report, until a Corbett follower tipped him off, Corbett’s write up in the second link.

            UK Government Moves Aggressively to Censor and Control the Internet

            The Globalist Trade Agreement You Didn’t Hear About

          • Zartan

            I agree and boy are these people sick. I would not doubt that they ( government officials) are paying ( using our money) for terror attacks. The attacks are too lame and tailor fit to benefit their planned tyranny. I actually herd some Idiot ( that bitch may, I think) saying the internet needs censored because of this nonsensical attack in London. Today, there were 6 people shot and killed in a workplace dispute in Orlando, Florida. I would not call London a Terror Attack! DUI, Possibly?

            The Governments ( and those who control them need Stopped) and mankind must stop supporting them and allowing their rule. Will this ever happen? I doubt it, so I am getting myself out, completely. When I get my TOTAL RETURN ( God Willing) I am getting out of America, and heading to some more civilized place, as far away from civilization as I can get: Back to the Swamp!

          • blue579

            Best of luck to you, Zartan. Word to the wise, though, the globalists are dead serious about putting everyone on the planet (chipped and tagged) into their stack and pack Agenda 21 / 2030 prison cities (‘urban’ areas). This is happening in a big way now in China, where the govt is in the process of moving 100 million peasant farmers into their ghost cities and recently removed 170,000 people from an area they want to designate as an exclusive zone for pandas. I’m all for responsible stewardship of the earth, but I doubt that’s what the big driver is for the control freaks running the show. Hope you find safety and sanity wherever you go.

          • Zartan

            Thank-You Blue 579. I wish you good fortune, safety and sanity as well. Yes, I agree, the filthy 1-percent would love to chip and put everyone in a concentration camp. However, if you look at the society we live in here in America, an Angry cop on every corner, it is no much different than a concentration camp. Millions of Laws … All written to Persecute the common slave. No … I would rather leave this godforsaken land before it gets any worse. There are still places on earth where the US government cannot go. Government comes messin around in My Swamp and I feed them to the Alligators!

          • blue579

            Anytime you want whatever small amount of ‘intel’ I’ve scooped up as a 15 year amateur geopolitical researcher that might advise to the trajectory of a region you’re eyeing, feel free to tap me on the shoulder on my Disqus stream, Zartan. I do OK and sometimes surprisingly well reading the tea leaves. I approach the conundrums with the help of my experience as a former professional medical neuroscientist / researcher. The combo makes for some weird “Aha!” moments combining the two. LOL 😉 Take care and hopefully I’ll bump into you again sometime in the comment forums.

    • blue579

      BTW & FYI, a final note : The highest levels of the US govt essentially report to supranational bodies, e.g. BIS, FSB, Trilateral Commission, etc and that’s where major policies, economic and geopolitical are decided.

      Many years ago Chomsky explained the role of POTUS has become ceremonial, and this would have begun in a more formal manner with Carter and his cabinet ALL being members of the Trilateral Commission.

      Regarding Congress, Clinton’s Sec of Labor Robert Reich famously said “The dirty little secret is that both houses of Congress are irrelevant. … America’s domestic policy is now being run by Alan Greenspan and the Federal Reserve, and America’s foreign policy is now being run by the International Monetary Fund.

      • eddysachs

        …All compliments of USURY….nailed that one Blue…Cheers

  • blue579

    Imagine TPTB held a war and nobody showed up.

    Imagine TPTB rattled their sabers and the gatekeepers could no longer hide the fact that supposed nemeses such as Iran, Russia, and China were, in fact, members of the New World Order in good standing and the leaders of those nations were knowingly engaging in Kabuki theater with the United States.

    The masses would turn away not only from war machination but also TPTB’s global control grid.

    • eddysachs

      Simple to understand & absolutely true (imo)…but still the sleep walkers can’t wake up from their conditioned somnambulism…time to Wake Up! & break out of the ‘spell’ that’s been cast over you….sleepy heads…the MSM is propaganda based Kabuki Theater of the Absurd.
