This is too ridiculous, too obscene and too obviously grotesque, to be true. But yet it is. The AngloZionists got so mad at the US defeat (by Qatar) and victory by Russia in the competition to host the 2018 football/soccer World Cup and by the fact that FIFA agreed to have a vote on the Israeli membership, that they ordered a worldwide series of arrests of FIFA officials. The British are now “offering” to host the 2018 World Cup.
The pretext for the arrests? Corruption of course! (like that never EVER happened before).
And the date for the arrests? Just before tomorrow’s FIFA meeting, what else?
I can tell you right now that I don’t give a damn about big corporate sports events, much less so about soccer. As far as I am concerned, the next World Cup could be played on the dark side of the moon, or at the bottom of the Mariana Trench – I don’t care one bit.
Neither do I doubt that the FIFA elites are, like all the other so-called “elites,” 100% corrupt. You can arrest them all and throw away the key – I couldn’t care less.
Finally, I am not surprised one bit by the abject subservience of the Swiss to the Diktats from Washington: since the Swiss paid 300 million dollars in protection money to the racketeers of the World Jewish Restitution Organization, the World Jewish Congress, they have become the faithful and spineless agents of the AngloZionist Empire.
No, what amazes me is the fact that only Putin seems to notice that the USA is taking yet another major step toward extending its jurisdiction worldwide. Everybody else is pretending like “no big deal”, it’s just “business as usual”. Which it is, of course, for the AngloZionists: combine a rejection of a US bid, add a Russian victory, throw in Israel and big money and you will get all of Washington in a pre-apoplectic state.
But why is everybody else humbly looking away?
As I said, I don’t give a damn about soccer. But I sure hope that tomorrow, Sepp Blatter gets re-elected and that the rest of the (yet non-arrested) FIFA bosses show some balls (pun fully intended). If not, I will really start believing that soccer is for sissies…
The judicial base to interfere as claimed by the US Department of Justice is the use of the US dollars, a.k.a. Federal Reserve Promissory Notes, in conducting all of the FIFA’s bank transactions.
Essentially, it’s a judicial precedent to claim anyone on earth a subject of the US Domestic Criminal laws, as long as this anyone has at least a dollar bill in his/her/its pocket.
Hmmm — that would make the US’s use of “counterpart” funds in every country in which they have a military facility a reason to subject US officials to the laws of every country in which they (we, unfortunately) have a military facility.
Maybe not such a bad precedent to have set, after all . . .
The US have signed agreements with countries they have bases in to prevent any US soliders being prosecuted. Surely you know that?
Yes, you’re right about the agreements, but that’s got nothing to do with US dollar (the US also wants to ensure none of their servicemen that get caught doing (or get entrapped into doing) something illegal can be turned into foreign agents due to judicial blackmail/plea-bargaining in the host country – it’s standard practice with non-NATO countries too).
Speak of Judicial blackmail, doesn’t this incident stink of a baldfaced attempt to implement a coup in FIFA? Some people are speculating that that’s what this is all about.
Here some points/observations:
– This is definitely looks like it’s aimed at trying to steal/cheat/reverse Russia’s bid victory for 2018.
– They are definitely trying to force the Jordanian choice onto everyone. Why? see first point.
– Nowhere did Putin mention the FIFA Israel vote so I don’t believe that this is an issue.
– Only point Putin did mention is that it cannot be acceptable that a country can extend it’s jurisdiction to the entire world; i.e. for the US to try to prosecute people for alleged crimes that never even occurred in the United States nor against the United States.
– This move has a strong chance of backfiring and accelerating the de-Europeanization of international bodies.
– China has a lot to gain (in the medium to long-run) from this idiotic and unsophisticated move by the Swiss and the US administration: Who’s going to feel safe in any international body if it is located in the judicial “banana-republic” of the EU and Switzerland? Ergo, people/bureaucrats are going to push to move these institutions to the territory of a more subtle and mature power that will forcefully not tolerate violations of it’s sovereignty. – Macau, Hong Kong and Shanghai are excellent locations with facilities that make Europe’s look used and out of date.
– VISA credit services threatening FIFA is an excellent opportunity for the Chinese UnionPay system to gain global recognition and expansion. FIFA should call VISA’s bluff and dump them for MasterCard or set-up a bid for UnionPay. FIFA should learn from this incident and have counter clauses against their sponsors if the sponsors help damage FIFA’s brand.
-The Europe is starting behave like 3rd-world countries did, they cannot be trusted to uphold rule of law and independent impartial judicial systems: If they don’t have the capacity to offer safe-harbor and independent hearings towards delegates/members of international organizations operating on their soil, who’s going to want to locate or stay there?
-Switzerland is no victim here at all, they are part and parcel (leadership) of the system that so many here complain about. You’ll note that Switzerland was not attacked by the Nazi’s during WW-2, they were strangely left unscathed by all of the warring parties; this is the heart of where a large chunk of the inhuman psychopaths, financiers and planners that muck the world up live. You’ll notice that no criticism of gun-ownership ever emanated from the Anglo-media and idiot-liberal-left euro-media against Switzerland’s mandatory requirements that men that have passed thru obligatory military service must keep guns in their homes. Yet…. lot’s of EuroLiberal propaganda against the right to bear arms in America. —> So many anomalies are not a coincidence.
– Don’t you find it strange (shameless, funny, extremely funny) that the US attorney general is going after individuals that alleged stole money in the range of $100 Million while she openly fraternizes with individuals who stole trillions of dollars from the global economy via the Bank bailouts and money printing?
– Isn’t it funny to see corrupt billionaires throw corrupt millionaires (Corrupt embezzling, bribe taking FIFA officials) under the bus? You know what’s going to be even funnier? When we see the Trillionaires throw the Billionaire front men (like Soros) under bus in the near future.There truly is no honor amongst thieves.
Overall, increased tension is their usual Hegelian methodology: problem; conflict; resolution. The resolution is the NWO, which can be brought in only after they’ve frightened/frustrated us to death.
Just like the conditions post-WWII caused sovereign countries to give up control over their currencies to vest that control in the IMF, BIS, etc.
Just as many Muslims don’t see they’re being manipulated to kill each other, are ignorant of the geopolitical aims– many of us cannot entertain the possibility that this clash between the “West” and Russia/China has a definite resolution in mind.
Russia/China need to stop fighting for control of centralized structures; idea is not to take them away from the West, but to de-construct them: Decentralize power.
The FIFA bit is only a tiny bit of the same overall tension-building. Sure got a lot of people’s attention.
One interesting thing not many people remember also, since you mention BIS, is that according to the Brettonwoods agreement BIS was supposed to be eliminated. Obviously, it never was – just another org. that US ended up controlling when it originally was not even a founder of the BIS.
The BIS and the people who control it, control the USA, not the other way around.
The fratricidal war in the Middle East, deliberately fomented by Israel, the USA and various Sunni thug regimes, can proceed with a few thousand selected and trained psychopathic butchers, organised in death-squads, heavily equipped and enthused with the evil Wahhabist genocidal doctrine. The vast bulk of populations wish only to live in peace. The same Satanic policies were used by the USA in Yugoslavia, with assistance from Germany, the Vatican and NATO. Any multi-ethnic or multi-faith state can be turned into a charnel-house if the evil monsters in Mordor-on-the-Potomac so decide.
yours is an excellent post.
It somehow reminds me a previous reference (quite a while ago) in which Kat Kan made reference to a “benign” trillionaire.
My argument was that such an entity does not currently exist and, by definition, could not be benign.
Do you infer that trillionaire’s do currently exist – or is your’s a vision of the near future?
“Do you infer that trillionaire’s do currently exist?”
What do you think the Rothschilds are?
And bear in mind:
the Rothschilds are not ”the ones”. They are from their beginning in Frankfurt the accountants of THE Elite. The wealth which was stolen and accumulated through the ages since Babylon by the Black Nobility, was “given” to the Rothschilds for one purpose: to infuse it in the then newly emerging banking systems, to “transform” it by this and to make it more fluid and flexible for the international arena. They planned the “Globalization” even back then…
“What do you think the Rothschilds are?”
I don’t doubt that although I have a feeling that Kat Kan will ask you for their balance sheet to prove it.
@Anonymous re: Trillionaire
A trillionaire does not necessarily have to be a human, it can be a financial conglomerate, a holding company of holding companies, etc. In such a case, the behaviour of such an entity will by definition be psychopathic; psychologists/psychiatrists allege that all corporations (and government bureaucracies) manifest the behaviour of a psychopath (i.e. they have the psychological profile of ruthless psychopath). The larger and more abstract the corporate entity, the more divorced from humanity and moral accountability its behaviour; ie Banks, holding companies, holding companies that own banks, etc.
So, you are likely right, that a Trillionaire is unlikely to be benign (corporate or otherwise). In the case of a human Trillionaire, we would have seen evidence of benign behaviour by now: The power an entity with so much money would dwarf nations and would be able to emancipate and financially empower large sections of the world, to the point that the current system of enforced scarcity, imposed poverty and accelerating national wealth concentration into the hands of the least productive and least competent would be stopped dead in its tracks and reversed. Instead, we see the exact opposite trends across the globe.
As far as I can see, no benign behaviour, so far, is visible, neither from the vast majority of the billionaire class, neither from corporate entities that are orders of magnitude larger than individual billionaires nor, by entension, would we likely see benign behaviour from an alleged Trillionaire.
You’ll note I used the term “not likely” (not the term impossible) because with humans, an exception is always possible.
@3 Cents. Very good. The Trillionaire to dwarf all others is the pension fund industry. Your pension and mine.
“– Don’t you find it strange (shameless, funny, extremely funny) that the US attorney general is going after individuals that alleged stole money in the range of $100 Million while she openly fraternizes with individuals who stole trillions of dollars from the global economy via the Bank bailouts and money printing?”
In short: NO.
It was always so. Hang the small fishes, let go the big ones…
It is sad, but you are right.
Agree with most of that except the gun ownership thing. The United States media is so dominant that it spews American domestic issues across the world like we should all give a fuck what Americans do with guns in america (personally I don’t give a damn… I live in a country where I don’t need to own a gun in order to feel safe in my own home, and if it’s the government you’re worried about- well owning a few automatic rifles isn’t going to change the fact that a government can continue to escalate violence far longer than any band of camo-wearing-compound-dwelling-kooks can).
Anyway, in Switzerland gun-ownership is obviously not a big political issue, they have a culture that anyway depends far less on the mechanics of fear, and they don’t have a media that stretches across the world to let us all know about every single development in their gun issue as if we should all care how many Americans the Americans shoot every year in America.
Isn’t a silly thing to do when large parte of status come from dollar being reserve currency? I mean why anyone would do that.
And I was wandering what FBI is doing in Zurich. Does it mean, if one has one dollar bill in a piggy bank in Kamchatka, technically they can get a warrant?
Scott that is not the basis for this fake blackmail indictment, the position the US took is they ‘think’ they can prosecute anyone that used US Banks and institutions to commit the alleged crimes. This has nothing to do with using the US dollar.
This is the fruit of NSA private data and communications theft. This seems like a clear attempt at blackmailing those they didn’t arrest to change their vote or to tow the line going forward. If it is it’s quite pathetic because it’s making the blackmail too obvious (because of the timing – 2 days before the election). What’s worse, it’s happening in a so called “sport” that US is not interested in, and utterly useless & weak at playing, but a “sport” that the rest of the World is very keen on. (btw. commercial sports are BS distractions for the average man so that they don’t think too much about real competition of life where the parasitical class screws the economy (bread and circuses for the dupes).
This has the potential of becoming a PR disaster for the US, because the masses in Latin America, Africa, etc can resent somebody who can’t win on the pitch hijacking a game that doesn’t belong to them – unfortunately for Russia, as usual, they’ll be too inept to seize this opportunity and pull-off a well orchestrated campaign to play up this resentment across the globe – 3-rate RT English/Spanish won’t be able to pull it off; they’re infiltrated by either real agents or the incompetence of some their well-meaning left-wing liberal staff in Washington DC.
I think the most salient point in all this is what Putin brought up: the world cannot and will not tolerate any country extending their judicial system into other countries for alleged crimes committed in other countries. The rest is unimportant minutia regarding fake commercial sports.
“(btw. commercial sports are BS distractions for the average man so that they don’t think too much about real competition of life where the parasitical class screws the economy (bread and circuses for the dupes)”
“Panem et circenses”, like in old Rome…
Common thinking amongst people, who begin their quest for truth.
Unfortunately on your way of awakening you will find out that this is nothing that is forced upon us by a Elite. It is a need of the unconscious masses. It is a tool for “emotion-management” for the unconscious masses. All the positive and negative emotions which aren’t recognized, allowed and lived by the unconscious ones, must find a channel.
To channel them through such sport activities is the lesser of two evils.
When the US broke the back of Swiss Secret Bank Accounts (must have had some juicy pedophile or sexual blackmail on the top officials of government and banking industry), the Swiss lost their sovereignty.
All they have left is chocolates and cuckoo clocks. They have lost everything by capitulating on the one asset they had.
They are Uncle Sam’s bitches now.
Look for little Swiss children being peddled to Thailand where the degenerates cluster (mostly from European nations like Germany).
It’s all how deep you look for the truth.
I expect Pope whoever will be blessing the US for its ‘charitable works’.
The US banks have been the center of all corruption in the world laundering money for every oligarch and corrupt organization. Yet no prosecution of the big 5. Slap on the hand, fines (where the money goes no one knows) and back to business for Lloyd and Jaime, and the other criminals (banksters).
And the corruption was from 20 years ago!
But now, just by chance, the U.S. government ordered the Swiss police to raid the hotel where the main FIFA functionaries are residing to arrest some of them on corruption charges going back to the early 1990s. The U.S. wants these to be extradited to face a U.S. court.
This may not turn out to be cut and dried for the AngloZios. The richest power bloc within FIFA is UEFA who, amongst other things, have a long term sponsorship deal with Gazprom for the Champions League club tournament, the most lucrative club competition out there, with regular appearances from Russian club teams. UEFA will not be happy about anything that could jeopardize this income. Attempts to destabilize FIFA will leave UEFA untouched and possibly in a position of greater power within world soccer administration. Conjecturing some more, my guess is UEFA would support the continuation of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Are you serious? UEFA is actually leading the charge in this alongside the U.S. Government.
None of the regular commentators on this site are serious.
Penelope was the first one on this site to bring this issue up. She gave us the link :http://www.moonofalabama.org/ , where they explained that it was all about vote on Israel in FIFA.
Another theory is that it is about Russia hosting the World Cup in 2018.
Let’s see how will this develop further.
I don’t think it is necessarily an “either, or” . I see the Empire as “multi-tasking”,hit Russia and support Israel in one wack.
But I wonder why the world in not informed about Israel vote ?!
I see it as backdoor Israeli/ZPC political maneuvering as usual. Using the USA to do its bidding against the Palestinians and Russia. people often forget most of the leadership of the 5th column in Russia have israeli passports.
As the Supreme Beings in the Universe, ‘Gods on Earth’, ‘The Eternal People’ etc (one could grow tired listing all the examples of narcissistic self-adulation), they see themselves as being above mere ‘Goy Law’. The Yesha Council of Rabbis and Torah Sages made that plain in 2006 as Israel destroyed Lebanon. According to these worthies, and they are massively influential inside Israel as allies of the Judaic Taliban, the so-called ‘settlers’, under Judaic Law killing civilians is not just permissible, but is a religiously sanctified good deed, or mitzvah. International Humanitarian Law to the contrary was contemptuously dismissed as mere ‘Christian morality’. Heaven help the Palestinians under the jack-boot of creatures like these, apparently, as far as the slave states of the West are concerned, forever.
you should care about football. its a highly political thing, just as any other major sport event. controlling those events is a major asset for politival propaganda and coercion.
the problem with FIFA was that it was *not corrupt enough* to be bribed into becoming a us-organization.
blatter of course took some money, had a good life, and payed himself a pretty good salary. but this in no where near “normal” CEO-territory. but he had a vision where football would become *the* global sport, not just a european thing (with the us joining in and taking over now).
its also a demonstration that us “law” applies everywhere on the world, to everyone. of course, only very selectively. and international law does not apply to us-citizens, of course.
and this is the clear warning that the us will use this as a weapon against those they can’t bribe.
the FIFA does not have to cancle russias WM, but installing a puppet (like the jordanian prince they want to become president), would laos allow them do a hell lot of propaganda during the WM (“uncovering corruption”, active sabotage of construction projects to get dem delayed, everything is possible- and yes, even planting a “chechen bomb” in a stadion gets much easier).
If or when Blatter is voted back in. Move the headquarters of FIFA to Hong Kong. Problem solved.
For Saker’s sandbox:
Did you know that about 3 square miles of sand to build up some islands is not feng shui, but US battleships & patrolling aircraft are?
China said it was “deeply concerned” on Wednesday about a reported U.S. proposal to consider sending naval ships and aircraft toward man-made islands in the South China Sea as tensions escalate between the two nations over the vital waters.
“Reclamation isn’t necessarily a violation of international law, but it’s certainly violating the harmony, the feng shui, of Southeast Asia, and it’s certainly violating China’s claim to be a good neighbor and a benign and non-threatening power,” Daniel Russel, assistant secretary of state for East Asia, said in a telephone interview.
Typical of the US to lecture China on what is feng shui.
“…a benign and non-threatening power,…” is something the self-proclaimed United States don’t know a lot about either.
Does the Great Wall ruin the Feng shui of northern China as well?
So when the UAE did the very same thing it was feng pui?
This American snakeis talking about “feng shui” and being a “non-threatening neighbor”?!?
That’s hilarious coming from the same America that has invaded or attacked multiple nations throughout the Middle East, Africa, and South-Central Asia, slaughtering millions of people as a result.
There is something pathologically sick about the American people, as they instinctively project their criminal tendencies onto others.
America should be more concerned about another Eastern concept: Karma.
As they say, karma can be a hella b!tch.
Americans will find that out the hard way.
So, this opens the way for Prince Ali bin al-Hussein to be elected as President, even if Blatter digs in his heels and refuses to resign.
Who benefits from a Jordanian at the head of FIFA?
He’s been VP since 2010, and what does Wikipedia say about him?
“Ali was one of a number of FIFA officials to call for the publication of the Garcia Report into allegations of corruption surrounding Russia and Qatar’s bids for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cups.[”
Ah yes. There you go. Long-standing alleger of corruption by Russia.
I do not think this is aimed at Russia. More Quatar. Russia has every right to host the world cup as it is a country with a long established league and stadium system, Quatar does not because it is too bloody hot there to play football.
It is also about Russia-2018:
There you go, saying things that make sense. What would sense have to do with politics, now?
Are you seriously that naive? Seriously?
See, this is not about what is right or sensible. It is about what USA wants, because it’s a bully and doesn’t want Russia to have anything. They’re afraid of Russia, trying to knock it down now before it gets too strong. But the Russian bear, instead of snarling back, just sits quietly. More and more countries can see USA poking the bear and the bear acting nice, so it’s gaining a lot of friends.
We are all hoping all arguments can be solved in peace, as a war would not be good with both sides having nukes.
Yes, really, Russia can destroy the whole planet many times over with her nuclear arsenal. It is so silly to speak of her weakness and trying to goad her into military action, like she is somehow insecure about her world image. She will keep her nukes in tiptop shape and present a friendly face to the world. She has nothing to lose by remaining peaceful. All these things are provocations to get a negative reaction out of Putin. He wisely sidesteps them. The Russian people are smart enough to support his policy of non-confrontation.
They are hoping Russia will react enough that they can do a bit of bombing or a bit of land war. COUNTING on Russia’s decency to not use nuclear weapons. Or make Russia hated enough to become totally isolated. Actually they fell for their own “Russia is weak” propaganda and seriously thought a few sanctions and dropping oil prices would bring her to her knees.
The only time in history Russia was close to being on her knees was when the Western loans+austerity+privatisation robbing her assets nearly worked. In 1998 she had to default on her loans and could not get any more. In 17 years, from being roughly in the position Greece is in now, Russia built back up to a vibrant economy, enough industry to not rely on imports for everything, a growing population and a growing middle class. And a growing well-equipped military.
I keep posting this and I don’t think anybody’s ever looked at it, but PLEASE look. Look how after the West moved in with loans and “free market” people could not afford to have children.
Numbers on the left are the age groups today ; work out from that what year the patterns change. Change the year to 1950 or so, and see how much thinner the male side of the graph is….all the war losses You’ll see the same on Ukraine. And the same no-children-born in the 1990’s in every ex-Soviet country.
Kat Kan, this is an extremely useful visualization. I saw it last time you posted it & have put it in my “Hoax: De-Population Is Necessary” file. The beauty of the link is that you can use it for any country.
Thanks for posting it.
Qatar can afford lots and lots of air-conditioning. Don’t they have indoor ski resorts?
My guess is they’ll go after ping pong next.
Mark, you’ve taken leave of your senses. This is all about Russia and punishing FIFA for daring to countenance any anti-Israeli vote.
Like Yukio Amano at the IAEA-a total stooge of the Divine Empire. The salient feature of US Exceptionalism, which reflects the dominance of Jews in US power structures, is a totalitarian supremacism which hates any social, economic of power structure anywhere that the Chosen People, the divine US-Israeli global ruling elite, does not totally dominate. The USA is No1…and don’t you forget it! If they cannot control it and call the shots, they will destroy it, if only out of spite. That the USA is rubbish at the world’s greatest sport only increases their desire to shit all over it.
Repost of comment from another blog entry as it is about this subject.
Has the FIFA corruption crisis saved Israel from vote to expel it from world football?
One consequence of the US order to the Swiss police, on 27 May 2015, that it arrest and extradite seven FIFA officials for alleged corruption, could be that a vote to kick Israel out of world football for its racism towards Palestinians will now not take place. The vote was due to be held by the FIFA annual congress on 29 May and expected to win majority support among the delegates. Below Geoff Lee from Palestine Solidarity Campaign explains why the vote should go ahead.
THERE IS a unique situation in the Middle East: in that one country, Israel, is deliberately hindering another – Palestine – from playing football, and exhibits racism and discrimination against Palestinians within its own jurisdiction.
Due to this, Palestinians are demanding action which is perhaps slightly belated, but nonetheless, as urgent as ever. On 20 March 2015, the Palestinian Football Federation (PFA) submitted a motion for debate at the upcoming 28-29 May FIFA annual congress in Zurich. The motion calls for the suspension of the Israeli Football Federation (IFA) from FIFA until the following conditions are satisfied:
The article then continues listing the conditions and provides background about each of them. It’s fairly comprehensive about what the vote is about and what Israel has been doing that make their expulsion necessary.
100% spot on BOT TAK.
THIS IS ABOUT ISRAEL …
1. Timing is about imminent vote to boot Israel out of the world cup
2. US wanting the event, a cudgel on Russia is secondary to the very urgent potential booting of Israel … which would potentially put their atrocities in view of billions of soccer masses
Not arresting Sepp is surely strategic to make sure he has a Sword of Damocles ensuring the ‘correct decisions’ are made ….
One would think the FBI have as many big corrupt sporting and other fish to fry at home … but soccer becomes their international jurisdiction … in a nation that barely features as soccer players.
Johnathan Cook wrote a good piece :
Anyone who doubts how seriously Israel is taking the threat of being ousted from FIFA and how actively its supporters are working behind the scenes at the world body should read the comments of Avi Luzon, Israel’s representative to UEFA, European football’s governing body. Ominously, he says UEFA’s support for Israel is sown up and suggests that UEFA will prevent Israel’s suspension whatever the outcome of the vote.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: UEFA will not let Israel be harmed, especially as there is no reason for it. An agreement has been reached on a four-point draft that is acceptable to [Israeli PM Benjamin] Netanyahu, [UEFA president Michel] Platini, [FIFA president Sepp] Blatter and now [Palestinian soccer chief] Jibril Rajoub.
In the worst case scenario, if the Palestinians do not agree to pull the proposal and the congress is held as planned, UEFA will prevent the suspension of Israel in a very clear way. From the conversations with important people, face to face here in Warsaw, I can say without a doubt that concern over Israel’s suspension through a vote will not happen.”
– See more at: http://www.jonathan-cook.net/…/us-arrests-as-fifa…/…
An Pepe Escobar gets it right too :
“No question FIFA is a monster racket, absolutely disgraceful to the sport. But there are myriad other agendas at play.
Timing. Why now? This could have happened much earlier, since Condie Rice asked for Iran to be excluded from the World Cup – and she was denied; the demand was part of a monster sanctions package against Iran.
FIFA this Friday would deliberate, among other items, on Israel being expelled.
There’s a major US lobby hell bent on stripping Russia of the 2018 World Cup. And virtually every Western big shot wants “moderate rebels in Syria” Qatar out of the 2022 World Cup.
Don’t forget slave labor practitioners in the desert won against the US for 2022. It’s AMERICA that should host the World Cup:
Now the FBI has a sterling opportunity to look gorgeous. And what fabulous P.R. – the US “saving” global football/soccer from a bunch of evil sharks. The big prize: not “justice”, but a lotsa corporate money US World Cup in 2022.
@…”Has the FIFA corruption crisis saved Israel from vote to expel it from world football?”…
Is the pope catholic?
Anyhow, this will be interesting as there are some “doublewhoopers” included, see: https://farsight3.wordpress.com/2015/05/28/8ung-28-5-2015/
The one is Qatar – the other are the Clintons, who received a huge pot of “donations” from the FIFA…
Usually I would agree with you, but I cannot stand Blatter. I would rather see an egg govern FIFA than Blatter. Mr Platini would be my first choice though.
Whilst I do agree that the timing is rather suspect, I would like to see them all locked up. Who awards a football tournament to a country where the temperatures are over 50C in the summer. Insanity. Why not play in Antartica? It makes as much sense. Russia 2018 was a fair choice and they are a proper football playing country, unlike the US of A. This tournament should always be given to countries where they can use the tournament to help develop infrastructure etc.
Platini is the WORST!
Interesting to see Cuddles Kolomoiski amble up after his defeated team to try to buttonhole Platini in Warsaw…A first. Shame the POV was immediately switched….
I found that funnier than I should have…
I do not know in other countries, but here in Brazil the Yankees are being hailed by the media as executors of justice … And in the main news site, Putin’s repulsion is placed in order to induce people to believe that he is concerned about the situation, as if somehow involved. And, in the comments, several “fakes” criticizing Putin and Russia, something strangely common a couple of months now in various page news about Russia, including sites from other countries …
No one “remembers” the request of US senators, months ago, that the World Cup to leave Russia.
Only one person without the slightest notion of geo politics (and unfortunately are the majority) think the Yankees – who hate soccer, suddenly cares about the honesty of sport in the world.
Goes to show they truly control the media everywhere. Actually the worldwide coordination on this FIFA scandal is stunning
Brazil can never be a free country until they control their 5th column elements.I don’t see that happening until someone is in office pushing that.Its all well and good for Brazil to be a BRICS member and all.But as long as the Empire controls it it won’t progress to freedom.And that is true of most of Latin America.The Empires craws are very deep there.Until they are ripped out I don’t have much faith in those countries futures.
The Brazilian MSM like all Western MSM is a Rightwing sewer of lies and hatred.
The Extra-territorialization of US “law” is illegal, but has somehow managed to gain traction. Such behavior must be destroyed.
question is HOW?
I see the major stumbling block as people ALL OVER THE WORLD still have “trust” in western MSM. Until that changes, these MSM can twist all “stories” to the Hegemon liking. All other truths/values be damned, as people will not even know they exist!
It could start by Russia and China saying its illegal and must never happen again.And the next country doing it be sanctioned by Russia and China.No gas,oil,and trade of any kind from those countries.And if Russian or Chinese citizens are taken you send a GRU team to rescue them.Declare you consider that kidnapping and that’s how you deal with kidnappers.Diplomatic protests and comments are as worthless as toilet paper for this situation.
Outlaw, one of the frequent topics of the Chelsea Manning Wikileaks US diplo-thuggish cables was US pressure applied to the judiciary in stooge states, like Germany and Spain (I’m sure there were others)to drop charges against US thugs involved in rendition kidnappings and intellectual property theft. The US is, in fact, the most totalitarian terror state ever, not just subverting countries around the world, spending billions to interfere in other countries’ politics through the NED et al and a collection of ‘private’, arrogant, interfering, NGOs, invading countries contrary to international law and murdering millions, but also ignoring any International Convention or Treaty it cares to, even those it has signed and ratified, including the Torture Convention. Add to that the psychopathic arrogance, not just of the ruling elite but even the poorest loser in his brainwashed stupour, that the USA represents not just the most moral society possible, but bears God’s direct imprimatur, and you have the greatest, most maniacally determined, intolerant, genocidal and destructive force in history. In fact, as the USA crumbles into the sewer of its own moral, economic, intellectual and spiritual collapse, its elites are, as expected, reacting to its decline and the rise of China et al, with psychotic fury and insanely reckless aggression.
That’s the thing, though: they are throwing the entire kitchen sink at Putin, but he does not hit back.
А ведь, голубчик: нет сильнее тех двух воинов, терпение и время
What makes you think he isn’t hitting back?
You only see what you are allowed to see and only know what the gatekeepers allow you to know
[MOD: trans: But dear, there is nothing stronger than those two warriors – patience and time ]
Hitler was very very impatient, and look where that got him.

Thank you, Anon, for recognizing that the best way to kill the bank is to learn from others that made the attempt. You deserve a medal.
Like everything it today’s world this is part of the war against Russia (and China).I fully expect to see Russia stripped of the 2018 tournament.It doesn’t do any good to “notice” it,unless you intend to fight these actions.Russia,China,and other countries that are friendly (or at least neutral) should be working to split away from FIFA and forming their own organization.If Russia,China,Serbia,Iran,Brazil,Argentina,Belarus,Armenia,Cuba,Venezuela,India,South Africa,etc,broke away to a form a new organization it might wake some people up to what needs to be done to reform a strictly non-political organization.
US Trying to Block Reelection of Blatter as FIFA President – Putin
The United States is attempting to stop the reelection of FIFA head Joseph Blatter as the president of the association which is a crude breach in the principles in the functioning of international organizations, Russian President Vladimir Putin told journalists Thursday.
“I don’t doubt a bit that this is a clear attempt to not allow the reelection of Mr. Blatter to the post of FIFA president, and this is a crude breach in the principles in the functioning of international organizations.”
The arrest of FIFA officials on the initiative of the United States is strange, Vladimir Putin said.
Following the announcements, US Sen. Bob Menendez said that the indictment of FIFA officials shows that a new president is needed for the federation, adding that he has “long been concerned about FIFA’s selection of Russia” for the 2018 World Cup.
This is not the first time Menendez called on the FIFA congress to reconsider reelecting Blatter. Menendez and Sen. John McCain asked the football governing body in a statement Tuesday to elect a president who would strip Russia of 2018 World Cup.
On April 20, Blatter told Russian President Vladimir Putin that politicians who are dissatisfied with Russia hosting the World Cup can stay home.
And by a strange coincidence, simultaneous with the arrests, AIPAC’s tools McCain and Menendez, went on the offensive again:
FIFA Should Oust President for His Support of ‘Putin Regime’ – US Senators
The International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) should prevent President Sepp Blatter from serving a fifth term because of his support for Russia hosting the World Cup in 2018, US Senators John McCain and Bob Menendez said in a press release, issued on Tuesday.
Blatter is running for a fifth term as president of the international governing football body, with the election scheduled to take place at the 65th FIFA Congress in Zurich on May 29, the release explained.
“We strongly encourage you to elect a [FIFA] president who will…work to deny the [Russian President Vladimir] Putin regime the privilege of hosting the 2018 World Cup.”
Hosting the World Cup would provide Russia, the senators claimed, with economic support that would violate US and EU sanctions imposed on Moscow for its alleged involvement in Ukraine’s crisis.
On April 20, Blatter told Putin that politicians who are dissatisfied with Russia hosting the World Cup can stay home as Russia stages the biggest world championship in football.
The event could help foster global unity and regional stability, Blatter added.
The FIFA president said that holding the World Cup in Russia would help stabilize the tense situation in Ukraine and urged everyone not to mix military conflict with sport.
Russia’s preparations for the forthcoming event were flawless, Blatter said.
On April 2, a FIFA spokesperson rejected a call by 13 US Senators to strip Russia of the honor of hosting the Cup. History has shown, the FIFA spokesperson explained, that boycotting sporting events and policies of isolation are not the most effective ways to solve problems.
This is very interesting, what is also interesting is Greece.
Greece’s moment of truth – and Turkstream/ Greekstream’s moment of truth is approaching quickly in the next 2 months. Will Putin/ Russia/ China provide Greece with the help they need in this hour of need. Be strong and be public and be forthright in backing Greece?
Or will they allow Greece to remain in bondage to EU/ECB/IMF/US/UK/NATO etc.?
I don’t know how it will go, but surely Putin/Russia/China realise the importance of striking back at some point in a non-military way?
Julian, Russia’s already offered help: advance transit fees for gas. Seems Greece’s new “leaders” are shying back from providing real leadership. Their campaign promises were apparently remaining in the Eurozone AND relieving austerity. Not possible, since EU won’t cooperate in changing the conditionalities of the loans. They needed to Grexit BEFORE they repaid practically their last $2 billion.
Now I understand why the communiist party refused to coalition w them: they said it was a farce & they wouldn’t associate themselves w it. They were right.
Yes I know Russia has offered to help, but they need to get more open about it. Lead a delegation of Russian & Chinese officials to Greece and make some announcements with Tsipras about exactly how they will offer solutions that benefits ordinary Greeks as opposed to the ECB/EU/IMF solutions that impoverish Greeks.
Really force the message down the throat of the Greek populace.
Otherwise they will end up with nothing and Turkstream/ Greekstream will die a death of a thousand cuts.
Hell – didn’t they learn anything from the parade of US politicians who went to Maidan, Kiev to stir up trouble. What the hell were Nuland, McCain, Biden, Brennan and all doing in Ukraine! I mean really.
Both Russia and China prefer low-key diplomacy over media spectacles. Besides, how important are the masses in this case anyway? The coup in Kiev was due to a coup, not public support or lack of support. The Maidan was really just a PR cover.
Turkstream may well fail, because it still has to get to Europe, and all those countries are under Western control with almost no Russian power. The only power has been Gazprom and they try to hide and pretend that they aren’t Russian.
At the end of the day, Syriza wants less austerity and to stay in the euro. Since they can only have one of the two, it is likely they will stay in the euro, and their party will collapse in popularity. That is what they deserve. In fact, it might get worse. They and Greece may collapse and then get thrown out of the euro in a total mess. This, too, they deserve in the sense that you can’t say your policy is to want to both have a cake and eat it.
It’s easy for us to talk in airy generalities when we aren’t there. Not so easy when the course of action you take is going to result in people dying. The EU elites’ power isn’t going to go away because Syriza wishes it, nor is the Greek people’s desire to stay in the EU. If they hadn’t endorsed that they simply wouldn’t have been elected. But it’s understandable; it’s amazing the Greek people managed to think independently enough of the mass media etc. to elect Syriza at all. But before Syriza was elected, with the media generally seeing Grexit as a catastrophe and the public broadcaster taken off the air for not being slavish enough to government propaganda lines, it’s understandable that the Greek people, in a catastrophic situation, would be reluctant to let go of the EU security blanket–even if in reality, that’s just what they need to do. Greeks may back a Grexit if it is clearly the final resort, but probably not before then. One thing Syriza may well be working on is simply bringing their voters around to the idea that they’ve tried everything short of a Grexit and the EU is determined to crush Greece and refuses to allow any recovery, therefore Grexit is necessary. To do that and get the people behind them, they need to be seen to have tried everything.
Even if it’s basically the best move, a Grexit would cause a huge amount of instability and uncertainty in the short term–and if that chaos was bad enough, Syriza could lose control, the vultures would take over, and Greece would never reach the new better equilibrium that an exit would make possible. Syriza have to deal with the practice, not just the theory; both the Greeks who would be hurt in the short term and the threat of things going off the rails if they don’t get it right.
Advance transit fees for gas sounds nice, but it is somewhat beside the point. There is only one bottom line: The ECB and the IMF control Greece’s ability to continue operating fiscally. Right now they are leaning on the Greek government, seriously impairing its ability to do normal day-to-day financial transactions. It’s transparent blackmail. But if they really put the hammer down, Greece will see complete banking failure and move from “Great Depression” to “Somalia” in an amazingly short time. And the European Commission and the Germans have been pretty damn blunt about their willingness to do exactly that if the Greeks don’t obey. It’s a tough threat to buck, and I think people are way too dismissive of Syriza’s difficulties dealing with it.
The only outside help that would be worth much for Greece would be a pledge to buy their bonds at normal-country interest rates and help them move funds via the new SWIFT alternatives. Unfortunately, I’m not sure the latter are ready for international deployment–which may well be one reason Syriza has been doing a lot of stalling. If they’re going to do a Grexit or a default or even just fully defy the Troika they will need to have a plan, in place, ready to implement, indeed ideally already mostly implemented by the time they go public.
At the same time, it may well be that both Syriza and Putin, and for that matter the Chinese, have it more together behind the scenes than they are letting on. As I say, before they come out with a decisive break, they need to have their ducks in a row. Until that time, it is best for Syriza to look as if they are on the ropes and have no alternatives, so the Troika doesn’t take countermeasures. Hence, it is better for them if Putin appears to be doing, not nothing because that would be implausible, but supporting them too tepidly to give them an out. I was reading about Syriza years before they were elected. One thing that I took from that reading was that Syriza, both at the leadership and the activist level, were well aware even then that should they take power there would be a concerted effort from both the local and European establishment to undermine them and kick them out again. I strongly suspect that they had some plans beyond just “Negotiate in good faith” for how to deal with that. But for many government plans, you need to get control of the levers of power and be able to set things in motion before you can put the plan into action. So my suspicion is, much of what Syriza has been doing up to now has been stalling until they are ready to do . . . something. I don’t know what. And it may well be that Putin is ready to back their play when they make it.
I never cease to be amazed by the hypocrisy of my (the American) government and the level of cognitive dissonance shown by my countrymen.
The levels of chicanery and fraudulent results of the WWF (“professional’ wrestling) and in NBA matches is off the scale. The lack of sporting outcomes is generally acknowledged concerning “wrestling,” yet, millions religiously follow and watch it. It’s pure entertainment, not sport.
While the results of NBA matches is generally decided by biased officiating that is blatently obvious, its fans choose to look away.
The mote in the eye of North America is the size of the General Sherman redwood.
Problem is no matter how hypocritical or ridiculous the Hegemon actions have been/are, THEY GET AWAY WITH IT, and so will continue doing the same, and MORE!
If making big claims please give actual LINKS to where you got them from, not just order readers to hunt for it themselves. The site you mention, btw, has bee known to boast half of what they write is just made up. NO NUKES have been used in Syria or Yemen.
Isn’t it time to edit this junk. Publish the rational stuff and strip out the completely idiotic stuff like “neutron bombs”. These are bozos who don’t deserve the privilege of participating.
I saw this nonsense sweeping the Twitter world last night. It is moronic.
You don’t have to censor all their post, but for sanity’s sake, spare us reading this drivel.
Between the trolls and the haters we don’t need the mental midgets to be here. There is a standard and it rises each day in some parts of the vineyard. In fact, it has been an awesome month for comments as well as articles.
Cull the morons, please.
Cull the morons, please.
I tend to agree. The Veterans Today bullshit is really aggravating.
The mods can decide, but I suggest that the next time somebody reports nukes going off in Lebanon or Yemen the post get sent to trash ASAP.
My 2cts :-)
U.S. VETERAN REVEALS ATOMIC BOMBS PART II
In fact, the blokes had just nuked Iraq. According to U.S. military sources, the first detonation of a nuclear weapon against another country since 1945 took place approximately 11 miles east of Basra, sometime between February 2 and February 5, 1991.
With the city of Basra resounding to gigantic explosions, and engulfed in “a hellish nighttime of fires and smoke so dense that witnesses say the sun hasn’t been clearly visible for several days at a time,” a 5-kiloton GB-400 nuclear bomb exploding 11 miles away under the desert attracted no notice.
Or Geiger counters. In the heart of Baghdad, Christian Science Monitor reporter Scott Peterson waved a radiation-detecting wand over a small pile of jet-black dirt near a group of playing children – only to jump back in alarm when the instrument registered 1,900 times the normal background radiation.
“Two strange phenomena have come about in Basra which I have never seen before,” testified Dr. Jawad Al-Ali before the 2003-2004 Citizen’s Tribunal in Japan. “The first is double and triple cancers in one patient.
Solon, Your name-calling isn’t exactly edifying either. A person can’t know something before they know it. It’s perfectly possible to be fooled by a site. Our comments explaining that it’s not a reliable site help that person & others.
It’s not really so obvious that it didn’t happen. Look at Fallujah, Iraq. We know that there is tremendous sickness & so many malformed births that doctors have advised the residents not to have children! I have seen testimony by an American scientist that the radiological readings aren’t compatible w only depleted uranium bombing– that something more was used. No I don’t have the link handy.
Depleted uranium isn’t radioactive. It is very very dense and very hard and cuts into armour. The dust doesn’t blow around. It is very very dense. If you can quote such rubbish why not other people?
Yes it is radioactive.
Briefly it is about 60% as radioactive as uranium. Powder produced on impact can spread around a considerable area and remains radioactive mixed with the soil. It has been officially linked to birth defects.
No one but morons would waste their time reading and commenting here anyway. Yes. This is self referential.
One man’s moron – say Zak, is another man’s hero. (Sorry Jane, man is pithier).
Ignorance goes a long way, when it comes to believing dangerous nonsense being posted by proven liars.
Gordon Duff has several times boasted he makes up AT LEAST 25% of what he writes, up to 50%. I suggest you read this Wikipedia entry about nuclear bombs — it comes with some good pictures of REAL ones.
and some images
Those images are a joke. I have seen bigger and brighter explosions from a simple CAR GAS TANK exploding. A nuclear bomb of any size will suck up what it blew up, before mushrooming; these are not higher than a building and all flame. Not nuclear.
The main way to pick a nuclear explosion from a distance is that is sprays RADIATION everywhere. This drifts very quickly to a very big area. The world is full of MONITORS for radiation Thousands of them. And thousands of people watch them and blog about it when they go up even just a little bit. Too many of them to all be kept quiet. THEY didn’t see radiation clouds from Syria, so that is 100% proof no nuclear bombs were used there. It’s that simple.
“Gordon Duff” isn’t his real name. His real name is said to be “Bob Foote”
‘Duff-Man’- says it all, really, for any Simpsons fan.
Cheers for what you have said, these are not postulated as traditional atomic nuclear weapons though, but neutron bombs – clearly not as destructive.
I guess we could ask a further question – would you consider depleted uranium weapons as nuclear weapons? Most would i suggest.
A nuke starts with a blinding flash (many millions of degrees) which incinerates anything nearby. So no nuke. Even fireworks sometimes form small mushroom clouds.
well, maybe nuclear has begun already. I would, however date it back to the empire shooting up the former Yugoslavia with DU.
A neutron bomb is a bit different but there wasn’t one.
You want me to tell you? the answer is NO NO: NO.NOT NUCLEAR.
Educate yourself for crying out loud, instead of believing every panic merchant lying idiot that wants to scare you… and make money off your page views. .
Look at THIS
This was put down as nuclear, too. It was just a Tochka U rocket. There are several views of it, from all the cameras that recorded it. COUNT how long before you hear the bangs and the windows break. Every second is 1 mile., Any nuke that close, the camera and person holding it would be turned into dust. Especially note the last picture, the cheapo black and white, and note how most of the screen is washed out by the light from the explosion, making it look a lot bigger. Cheap low resolution lenses, such as in security cameras as this one is, always do that with bright lights.
That is the CRATER that explosion made. NOTE all the trees are broken and blackened, but they are still standing. A nuke would have turned them to dust.
We don’t have time in our lives to keep telling you this over and over. Learn it THIS ONCE. Any further posts about nukes going off anywhere will be deleted (as per instructions of Saker above).
I dont dispute the high noise level at VT in particular regarding delicate matters like unofficial uses of nukes.
But bunkerbuster nukes are an entirely different matter.
Experts claim the Us used 5 in Iraq and Afghanistan
Detonations And Deceit

Maybe have a read of these links – or just watch the video and make what you will of it.
It’s postulated as a neutron bomb and it certainly looks strange.
[MOD: NO. Just no. We have already stated our opinions on that site and on Mr Duff in particular. Those opinions are based on detailed knowledge of his material. If you think “certainly looks strange” is a good reason to believe everything you are told, how about believe US instead of HIM? Look at links we’ve left to huge explosions in Donetsk. Then research FACTS to have a more scientific idea of what looks “strange” and what looks like different known common things.]
Hey, you can call me whatever. I am long past the time being called names and worrying about it. Usually it is the caller who is the one exhibiting the qualities he is accusing me of. Anyway, I am not naïve as some suggest here and I have my brush ups with Mr. Gordon as well. I do not take anyone words for granted. Yet, in this case I do trust his opinion. Some call him cook and it is true from time to time. Yet again, when it comes to nukes, he knows his stuff. If you doubt it just read some articles related to WTC nuking on 911. You might believe whatever you want but when you see the picture of HUGE ROUND BLAST HOLE CARVED IN SOLID ROCK in the WTC basement you can’t convince me it was created by plane hitting the building 200 meters up in the air. I don’t need Mr Duff to tell me it was nuke. I know it when I see it so should anyone with the IQ above room temperature (in Celsius). It’s self evident.
It is also self evident when you see the characteristics of the explosion on the video clip. You have radiation effects in the camera, you have huge temperatures of the fire ball well beyond anything standard bomb can do. And yes, that huge blast in Donietsk was also nuke based. The picture of both blasts are nearly identical. If someone tells me that Ukies hit ammo dump there he is a moron. There were no secondary explosions there and the size of the blast was way above anything Ukies could deliver. Also, I do believe that discotheque bombing in Mali was mini nuke as well. And no, it was not Mr. Duff who mentioned it first.
Now, last thing I want to say. When one has no answers he in most cases uses derogatory ad hominem attack to discredit interlocutor. Mr. Saker is no different in this case. Also, Mr.Saker is no expert when it comes to nukes, Duff is.
In the end I want to remind everybody that when you stick your head in the sand, your ass is way up in the air.
Cogito ergo sum. Most people just follow.
For those who follow football (not soccer dear Saker) and geopolitics at the same time they would have noticed that ever since Russia successfully bid the 2018 World Cup, the AZ media started bitching about corruption at FIFA and UEFA. They also begun a smear campaign against Sepp Blatter (who I am certain is as corrupt as it gets) for that very reason. Corruption is the oil that greases the capitalist machinery and allows it to function. Simply put, as long as there is a global market economy, there will be global corruption.
But the problem here is a very obvious one. Corruption only becomes annoying when western countries start losing out to others, and secondly, what Putin said. The US are treating the rest of the planet as their own jurisdiction, something which is beyond scandalous and humiliating for the Europeans, but do they care about anything like that anymore?
I think that the Russia World Cup will go ahead in the end. The US and the UK will be left fuming.
If Russia should somehow lose their bid, well the general public should be glad actually.
Look what it brought South Africa and Brazil. 15 minutes of fame (and a whole lot of moaning about what’s wrong with the country from a western perspective) at the cost of billions of taxpayer dollars put into useless single-event prestige objects.
Don’t let them tell you otherwise about loss of commercial revenue and all that crap.
It’s all about the big brands, their sponsors, the commercials and their utterly corrupt fifa budies.
Yet the average morron from next door living on social benefits is cheering his lungs out when his favorite multi-millionaire teenager scores the equalizer.
Nope, I disagree, it is no longer about the sport, it is about the fact that the Hegemon is getting away with more bully tactics on other countries ! This is more than any issue with the sports of football.
To start with, I don’t give a damn either about FIFA and/or soccer games either.
But I DO give a damn about Putin selling out Syria and Bashar Assad now. For those who don’t know, Putin almost completely ceased military aid to Assad in the time of greatest need of that country.Yet, he still sells armor to Iran and Iraq even if those countries are in much better shape fighting common war with Anglo/Zionist ISIS criminals.
Inquiring minds want to know if there is any connection with Egypt buying huge amount of Russian weapons it is certainly not able to pay for.(i.e. who really pays the bribe…Qatar? Saudi Arabia?). Maybe Turks did the horse trading with Russians like “you dump Assad, we let you Mr. Putin to run your blue stream pipeline trough Turkey”?
I DO give a damn when Putin stays quiet when Israeli bomb Yemen with neutron nukes for a third time.
I DO give a damn when Israelis nuked Syria few times already and there was no peep from Putin either.
Why I do have a nagging thought that Putin is selling out rebels from LPR and DPR for the sake of increasing his leverage in the future Ukraine or whatever is going to be left out of it?
Why Putin displays such dubious behavior?
But what about you Mr. Saker, do YOU give a damn?
Any answers to those IMPORTANT questions?
Somehow I doubt it.
Prove me wrong Mr. Saker!
Please try to make your point without constant use of hostile words. Your totally off topic accusations about other people have been removed; any more of it WILL get you banned, which you currently are not.
Hmmm. Let me guess: VeteransToday.com?
Do not forget what is happening here.
Members of international institution (yes) therefore immune in state hosting most of these institutions are arrested by power of another state claiming some global rights.
Cause of the arrest was using dollars and us banks in a deal called a bribe.
There was not any trial yet but they are already convicted.
What do you think will be the members of all the other international bodies think about these things during their sleepless nights recently.
I would be not very happy if i was a US elite responsible for this attack.
International sport events enrich corporate parasites, and impoverish host countries.
First, I saw the story floated on ESPN TV that the FIFA election has been postponed.
Now, I come across this story just now ( that the election is on ):
Could they have ” found ” the anti Blatter votes and prompted whoever to move forward with the elections? So much mis and dis information…
On the subject of “Putin should be doing more”, which seems to come up quite often.
There seems to be something large quietly cooking in the background.
Rather than just China /Russia v US, perhaps China /Russia/ India v US.
As time goes on, US and Israel are openly displaying their contempt for the rest of the world. India seems a bit divided but with the nuclear armed US/Israel becoming openly rouge India may be looking to unite in a solid front with China and Russia. (Moscow parade, BRICS security meeting?)
Also talks between Russia/Japan and China/Japan. No idea what will happen there but seems to be a big diplomatic effort going on.
A race against time to put together a team before Syria falls and Iran is attacked?
UNSC seems to be as obsolete as the league of nations. As there are now alternative financial structures put in place, an alternative UNSC in the making?
I have real trouble imagining India’s elites joining up with Russia/China. They’re neoliberal to the core, a dedicated bunch of sub-imperialists, and they get along with Israel just fine. And Narendra Modi is both a racist, semi-fascist bastard and a solid neoliberal imperialist. If the Congress party are like US Democrats, clinging to the shreds of an image of once upon a time half-heartedly supporting some social justice even though they don’t any more, Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party are Republicans, brought in to take a wrecking ball to everything useful in government that Congress didn’t neglect to death yet and hand over the scrap to the rich, with muscle from religious fanatics (in this case Hindu rather than evangelical).
Modi may or may not bow to the United States as such, but he sure as hell bows to Monsanto.
AngloZionists 1 : World 0 – final score?
That’s too pessimistic.
Followed it intensively on television tonight, but neither in Germany, nor Britain, nor Holland does anybody expect that Blatter is NOT going going to be reelected on Friday.
The FUKUS coalition tries hard to torpedo Blatter and Russia-2018 and Qatar-2022, but they are going to fail.
F-France is probably send by the Americans, via Hollande to put extra pressure on Blatter, but he refuses to
UK-would love to steel the world championship from Russia
US-want to torpedo Russia-2018
The howler is that it was “Sarko the American” as he is nicked in France was the one who was really behind Qatar-2022. FIFA obeyed:
“No, what amazes me is the fact that only Putin seems to notice that the USA is taking yet another major step toward extending its jurisdiction worldwide. ”
Indeed, listen to what Joe Biden said earlier this week: “there are no spheres of influence anymore”:
But Biden can say what he want, nobody is going to extradite people from Switzerland to the US.
This is going to be another majestic failure for FUKUS.
Q; This is going to be another majestic failure for FUKUS.
R: I wish, but have you forgotten about Bolivian president’s plane forced to land in Austria in hunt for Snowden?
Unca Sammy might be on

Never underestimate your adversary. Ever.
I learned that the hard [arrogant] way.
There is one who have accepted voluntarily to be extradited(I guess in exchange for something?),the 6 remaining did not accept.
It is impossible that Blatter was not involved.FIFA has a special status in CH,they do not pay a single franc of taxes.
I guess Putin has a solid contract with these FIFA people,it is possible that there is a huge penalty(beyond FIFA means)to pay if they cancelled Russia 2018?
But the contracts don’t have value anymore in the west,since the mistral story.If necessary the US will provide some dollars to give to FIFA(just print some more valueless dollars).
Propaganda of the day for friday from the AZ MSM(in french only sorry).
See how AFP manage to talk about Navalny and Ksenia Sobtchak (noboday care about those two idiots in RF).
Anonymous, How long has Blatter had his position? Is it 15 years, I think? The corruption that forms the basis of this US grandstanding dates back to early ’90s– 1992, I think. So I guess it took the FBI 20 years to complete their investigation. Source: Moonofalabama.org
I’d declare the FIFA to be a ‘closet enemy combatant,’ to get the ball rolling… here’s how you do that… no [soccer] stars left.
For euronaive citizens sleeping and watching reality shows on tv,this is only the beginning of what is in store for Europe and for the pacific area with TAFTA and TIPP.Anyone in the future,once these two traitees are voted by the eurotraitors called EU politicians(right and false left),anyone will be eventualy sued in justice before the US junta courts,even for acts not committed in the US.Enjoy fascism 2.0 soon at a theatre near you.
This total BS has already be preapproved today in a total silence,I just saw this tiny article.
Not a single reaction,presstitude being bought and corrupted of course will say nothing about tafta,for one very good reason,this thing is classified ‘defense’..imagine if this must be very democratic?
They vote on texts they did not even read.
Greece needs to escape in the next two months and provide an example for the rest of Europe.
The clock is ticking – D-Day will arrive at the latest on July 20.
7 weeks to go……..
Will Russia/ China step up to the plate or let Greece be silenced?

Gosling added that FIFA is “one of the last big institutions that is not controlled by the West,” and it was no surprise to see how the West was backing Prince Ali of Jordan to become the new head of world football’s governing body.
Prince Ali Bin Hussein, a major general in the Jordanian army and married to a former CNN journalist, garnered much support from the West in his bid to unseat the incumbent Blatter.
“This guy sounds like a perfect pliable stooge for the West. He is a puppet kind of character. But the timing again is a dead giveaway for me as I am reminded about all the FBI’s arrests when the terror attacks were taking place in the United States,” Gosling added.
In his Strategic Culture Foundation article US Cries FIFA Foul to Penalise Russia Finian Cunningham observes:
“… US secretary of state John Kerry’s «respectful» attendance at a World War Two memorial in Russia’s Sochi earlier this month, along with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, may have suggested that Washington was paring back its covert aggression toward Moscow in a tacit admission of failure on that front.
However, having not been able to gain much traction from hybrid war against Russian interests in Ukraine, it appears that Washington is shifting tactical gears in its regime-change objectives against Vladimir Putin’s government. Spoiling Russia’s World Cup plans will endeavour to hit Moscow with heavy economic costs, as well as to undermine the country’s global reputation.
But the US-instigated corruption probe at FIFA is, in footballing terms, more like a shabby dive by the Americans with the real aim being to penalise Russia. It’s a risky tactic that may well backfire on Team America. …”
Hit back, and keep hitting back.
It’s always better to die on your feet than live on your knees.
Its not that most here don’t share your outrage at what is happening over there,I think we do.Its just that it isn’t nuclear weapons.What they are is vile bombing from insane lunatics killing innocent people.And that is horrible in its own right.
Russia-insider piece: Putin not keeping quiet!
What else likely happens? Following some dramatic procedural changes, Russia loses the hosting of the 2018 World Cup.
One thing that is certain not to happen: Qatar will keep the 2022 World Cup venue. Why? Because as we showed yesterday, the Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee had donated between $250,001 and $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation. And that is all it takes to buy the silence of the US DO”J”.
do not forget mister Saker, of the dark day of 29 May of 1453 …. the day that the city of the cities, Constantinople fall under of Muslims aggression ….. ¨η Πόλη εάλω¨ – the city had fall …… and the people cry since then ……
dear Saker do not forget to mention of that …… as long as you are an Orthodox Christian you have to remember this….. η Πολή εάλω – the city had fallen …..
and extended version of Sranoudakis ……
Cogito sed non sum.
Rather “Sum sed non cogito”.
“AngloZionists 1 : World 0”
How did you figure that?
Friday will see presidential elections in Zurich, as it carries on with “business as usual” despite the upheavals of recent days. It will be a secret ballot by Fifa’s 209 member states who have a vote each.
There are two candidates:
1 Sepp Blatter is seeking a fifth term as Fifa president.
2 Jordanian Prince Ali bin al-Hussein. He has been the head of his country’s football association since 1999 and is founder of the West Asian Football Federation.
None of the candidates are Anglo or Zionists as far as I know.
Bin Hussein is 100 pct sold to the US as UEFA is via Platini(friend of sarkozy responsible for the lobbying for the Qatar WC in 2022).Wife of Bin Hussein is a former CNN journalist..no need to say more.
But what I don’t understand,is usually Qatar is totaly sold to the AZ maffia usually,why are they against them on this FIFA thing?Maybe to destroy RF in 2018 they will use Qatar as collateral damage to be able to say to the press:”look we are not against RF ONLY as we are ALSO against Qatar”.
Qatar will not care anyway,they have plenty of money,so much as they don’t know how to spend it.
2018 going to the UK and 2022 to the US.
And of course Israel will stay in FIFA.Who cares?It is a terrible team,they never won anything.
Imagine that Israel is playing in the UEFA league,I did not know that Israel was an European country??Since when??Did you check where they are located?Why not Ethiopia then in Europe or maybe easter island?
“But what I don’t understand,is usually Qatar is totaly sold to the AZ maffia ”
These folks are already anticipating the victory of the Caliphate and are slowly moving away from ZOG.
We are witnessing the very real face of US/West since time immemorial. I think this is the kind of face or rather much more draconian they showed to American Indian and hence their almost extinction or their Ghetto condition at present. The most recent event in FIFA is just another form of US desperate and very ugly attempt to show their diktat. These are kind of lesson for the citizen of the world to know IN FACT “What kind of Land the WEST is!!” Sometimes the rich and super rich of WEST think that they are untouchables, so here is a wonderful show. And it is good what is happening. It would be a very good PR of freedom etc…..My prediction is more and more this kind of thing will occur to boil the situation so that the culmination of WW3(WW2 continuation as a matter of fact) takes place.
It would be and it must be because in my view the truce of WW2 made the entire Europe(East/West) hostage to the “US dem” or you can say enslavement to US and partly to USSR system. The end of the cold war has made the situation even worse. The so called freedom is the ennslavement to west which are already enslaved to US or whatever you could say the Democracy etc etc. In fact at the moment the entire EUROPE neck/everything is in the hand of US. It is really beautiful show of freedom and democracy. The culmination of the WW2 or WW3 you can call anything what you want would really bring the freedom to Europe/Japan/Korea and many others.
Hence what we are witnessing is the end times of the so called super draculian power. Hence the restlessness among them is very evident.
As I mentioned in my previous comment somewhere on Saker blog that a great power doesn’t act in this way. They are full of wisdom and greatness, and with great generosity.
I feel very blessed that I am experiencing this cosmos in this lifetime so that I could share this with completeness to the many generation as per my capability.
If the WAR has to happen for preserving the Righteousness then it must happen and we must face it bravely. However it should be delayed as much as possible to show the real face of devil as much as possible.
O J Simpson was arrested on the Sunday night prior to the opening of the World Cup. The media storm unleashed resulted in zero visibility for the event in USA. The victims had hundreds of defensive wounds indicating they were fighting for their lives for an extended duration. OJ had a little cut on one hand. Hardly evidence of a man involved in a death fight of such a kind. At the time a protracted series of labour disputes involving US men’s basketball, gridiron (I can’t quite recall) and or baseball had prevented these sports being played and there was a huge chance for football (soccer) to cement a top line place in US sports consumers appetites. OJ was set up and the arrest managed such to blunt that chance it would seem.
This is interesting. While RT is covering the Israel vote angle, while, as far as I’ve seen, Sputnik isn’t. Though both, obviously, are covering the anti-Russian angle.
FIFA’s corruption scandal: Behind the scenes
Israel to remain in FIFA due to scandal?
Conveniently, the intervention by the US order to Swiss police to arrest the FIFA officials for corruption came just days before members of world football’s governing body were due to vote on whether to kick Israel out of the organization over alleged racism towards Palestine.
The vote is scheduled for Friday and needs a two thirds majority of the 209 members to succeed.
The allegations regarding FIFA have proved to be very damaging; however, for Israel they could prove to be a savior. Until Wednesday, much of the media coverage from the FIFA congress in Zurich was concerning whether the delegates would vote to ban Israel from international football.
“Now, with FIFA’s boat already rocking, member states will probably be loath to pile one controversy on another. FIFA President Sepp Blatter, already opposed to Israel’s suspension (he met last week with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas) is probably looking to avoid two crises on his hands at once,” the Times of Israel stated.
Despite all the controversy facing Blatter, John Goodbody, a UK-based sports journalist, thinks it is impossible to look any further than Blatter getting a fifth term as FIFA President.
“The widespread belief is that Blatter will win very easily indeed. He will win very easily for the simple reason that he gives the voting delegates exactly what they want, which is more money. They get the money because of the success of football. Despite all the criticism that he has received, I would very much doubt if he will stand down at this stage,” Goodbody said.
I have not yet checked Russian language media to see what they are saying and whether any are discussing the vote to bounce the Israelis.
This RT article has more info on the Israeli attempts to shut down, or failing that, get enough support (by bribes, blackmail – the usual zionazi/mafia tactics) to defeat the expulsion measure.
Israel struggles to avert FIFA ban vote
As the moderator already said, VT is completely unreliable. Gordon Duff himself has admitted to it, listen here:
Gordon Duff admits to VT disinfo
The funniest part is when he states he must do it or else he’d be killed! buhahaha
Initially, I thought VT was for real, but soon I began having doubts, what with Duffs absurd stories re 9-11, which appear aimed at discrediting the great research done by many serious people, which shows the official dossier to be false. I.e, VT appears to try to discredit serious 9-11 research by publishing their bizarre disinformation.
I became fully convinced Duff and that other dude, Jim dean(?), were both very disingenious individuals when both, quite hysterically, began to support the illegal NATO war against Lybia. Several commenters turned on them and were banned. To one of them, Duff angrily retorted in the comment section that NATO was ZUSA – which it is – and therefore being against the NATO war was unamerican!!
Bizarrely enough, Iranian PressTv used to have articles from and interviews with the dynamic duo.
What to take from things like this? Have your BS detector on at all times. There is propaganda everywhere and from all sides.
Pro-government Syrian sources I follow state Russia continues to deliver weapons. IF Putin sells out Assad, it will be indeed very disappointing. No signs of that for now.
The israelis have not nuked Syria nor Yemen. They have, however, on several occasions, carried out illegal airstrikes against Syria during the proxy war there under various pretexts.
Conclusion: G.Duff is a sad little liar…
Regarding Veterans Today, I wonder if you have all heard about this major falling out at Veterans Today:
Now I realize some of these individuals have also been accused of being disinfo., like pretty much everyone in alternative media. Personally I have a lot of time for Jim Fetzer. I’m more dubious of the others.
(And re: Jade Helm, I think it’s something to be concerned about, at least as a possible dry run for martial law and further domestic repression, but I am not at all convinced the government is going to start locking dissidents up this summer! Still, I can see how there would be many opportunities to use Jade Helm to provoke a response that would justify a crackdown, depending on how it is actually carried out.)
I still am not sure exactly what Veterans Today is up to, but I treat it with a great deal of suspicion. It always looked ridiculous to begin with, but sometimes I can forgive that sort of thing as perhaps some sort of smoke screen.
Checked out the links.All I can say is….
What a snake pit..LMFAO
VT appears to try to discredit serious 9-11 research by publishing their bizarre disinformation.
I became fully convinced Duff and that other dude, Jim dean(?)
Yes,you probably mean Jim Fetzer,an associate editor at “Veterans Today”.I’ve watched him over the years get kicked off every forum that he joins,not only for his dis-information,but also because he always ends up being the big school yard bully.
And,also beware that VT will send their fools over here to try to discredit this site,which already seems to be happening…..just sayin’
check out this song about 9/11…its got Fetzer the clown juggling between thermo nano blah blah and minnie nukes…https://youtu.be/H2dI-yRkFXY
VT. Post Traumatic stress syndrome. Similar to McCain.
Surely there is some meds that will help?
The funniest part is when he states he must do it or else he’d be killed! buhahaha
Right, because telling the truth totally won’t get you killed. LOL… -_-
… Duffs absurd stories re 9-11, which appear aimed at discrediting the great research done by many serious people, which shows the official dossier to be false.
Thermite vs. nukes vs. DEWs, planes vs. holograms vs. CGI, etc. is for the advanced class in 9/11 Truth. Once you pass the basics, you’re not going back to the official story anyway. Discussing the nuances does not change that.
“The exaggerated need to control all aspects of the message is working against us. We have become so preoccupied with cleansing the movement of harmful thoughts that we spend an unhealthy amount of time attacking each other instead of the official story and the media cover-up.”
Pro-government Syrian sources I follow state Russia continues to deliver weapons. IF Putin sells out Assad, it will be indeed very disappointing. No signs of that for now.
Admittedly, that claim is pretty suspect. I don’t even see the strategic sense in slowing/stopping weapon deliveries to Syria. Iran will not sit back and let Syria crumple, and Russia likely can’t afford to lose the support of both countries. Anti-bankster regimes are on a pretty short list.
Still, I can see how there would be many opportunities to use Jade Helm to provoke a response that would justify a crackdown, depending on how it is actually carried out.
The thing is: A response can simply be made up. The Empire can just deploy ISIS, a militia, or some other stooge sqaud, make the drill go live, and we’ve got a fresh false flag for the long-planned American crackdown. Kevin Barrett mentioned “martial law through the back door,” so VT is not completely useless yet. Duff and Dean? Maybe, but not the entire site.
Russia sent their only aircraft carrier as well as missile defense destroyers when the US wanted to bomb them. There were almost 10 Russian ships covering the Syrian coast. If Russia can do that, do you think Putin will now back down? We never see the serious side of Russia as they don’t seem to make any loud threats, they just do.. Did we hear about the S300’s that were activated all through southern Russia and Crimean when they had the referendum? Any passing satellite could see they were active and tracking. This was not a bluff but to say if nato sent an expeditionary force to cause trouble, they will find it. Why do you think Ukraine not fly some trouble makers into the place to cause havoc and disrupt the voting process. How about using the Russian forces to surround the Ukrainian military bases so they could not get out. The big guns were kept out of sight but those Ukrainian soldiers knew there were heavy caliber guns trained at them but the soldiers facing them appeared unarmed and were not even carrying weapons. Losing Syria means Russia not only losing the chance to develop the gas and oil fields in the Mediterranean basin but also a naval power projection base to protect Russia’s access into the black sea. Other wise a single US aircraft carrier could block the Russian fleet inside, especially if Turkey sides with the US.
Syria’s problem seems to be that half the population has left the country, The Sunni majority carrying on with the fight are tired and just want it to end and everywhere they look, the Saudi’s and Qatari’s and others are waving wads of money if they just surrender.. The free Syrian army are not free, they got millions in Swiss bank accounts to defect. If Syria did not have a secular base for hundreds of years, they would have already given up. All they have to do would be to betray their Christian and Shia brothers living next door.. When you kids are in danger, there are powerful incentives to decide what is important.. After a while you begin to not care about others.. Look how fast Iraq lost its secular character.. It had many Christians and Jews and almost none remain there now. Pakistan is also losing a ton of them.
There were almost 10 Russian ships covering the Syrian coast. If Russia can do that, do you think Putin will now back down?
Exactly. I would also chalk up Putin helping defuse the chemical weapon false flag. And that had to have stung for the banksters; the Kiev coup was whipped up about six months later.
After a while you begin to not care about others.. Look how fast Iraq lost its secular character.. It had many Christians and Jews and almost none remain there now. Pakistan is also losing a ton of them.
I wouldn’t really say “secular character” so much as “moral character.” As worshipers of Big Brother, the Almighty Dollar, and similar not-gods aptly demonstrate, being secular and immoral still helps the Empire.
“A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.”

Yes, definitely of interest. I had not known the zionazis were running one of their disgusting smear campaigns against Alison Weir. Thanks.
The Onion nailed it down. Enjoy!
FIFA Frantically Announces 2015 Summer World Cup In United States
Global Soccer Tournament To Kick Off In America Later This Afternoon
ZURICH—After the Justice Department indicted numerous executives from world soccer’s governing body on charges of corruption and bribery, frantic and visibly nervous officials from FIFA held an impromptu press conference Wednesday to announce that the United States has been selected to host this summer’s 2015 World Cup. “We are thrilled to reveal that, for the first time in 21 years, the World Cup will finally return to America, with matches set to kick off today at 5 p.m. local time in Los Angeles,” said FIFA president Sepp Blatter, smiling broadly before unveiling the tournament’s official logo, a hand-drawn stick figure kicking a soccer ball with “USA 2015!” hastily scribbled in black marker above its head. “With world-class venues in cities across the country and a rapidly growing passion for the sport, the U.S. is the perfect choice—really the only choice—for this summer’s tournament. Everyone at FIFA is certain that the 2015 World Cup in America will be a tremendous success, and billions of fans from around the world will, in just a few hours, come together to enjoy this wonderful display of soccer over the coming weeks.” At press time, the U.S. national team was leading defending champions Germany in the World Cup’s opening match after being awarded 12 penalties in the game’s first three minutes.
Looks like the exceptionals lost the Onion. :D The corruption running this [cough] investigation is so transparently obvious the Americans are already being ridiculed.
CogitoMan, I know Veterans Today carries immensely persuasive articles– but they are frequently inaccurate– especially when they are by Gordon Duff.
It’s not a good site. Sorry. I’m not saying that it for sure didn’t happen, but you need to confirm it from a different site that isn’t simply echoing Veterans Today.
Well for sure I agree with that – however there is video there from Arabic TV on VT which is obviously not created by VT – an independent source.
It is certainly more to that than the infantile and inane comments of NYT or CNN about “Nothing quite grates on Mr. Putin and Russians generally than the fact that the nation’s loss of superpower status opened up greater opportunities for the United States to act with impunity anywhere in the world. Mr. Putin’s pronouncements on this issue have won him a global fan club as the man who stands up to American bullying. His strategy might backfire in this case, however, because FIFA is widely perceived as being riddled with corrupt officials and Mr. Putin could be seen as defending them.”
The elephant in the room!
Netanyahu: Effort to hurt Israel will destroy FIFA
Prime minister warns global soccer organization and Blatter that Israel would resist Palestinians’ suspension proposal ‘unequivocally’.
Latest Update: 05.28.15, 23:01 / Israel News
Even as the global soccer federation FIFA handles a shocking scandal that included arrests of senior officials, Israel has been preparing for one of the most important votes in the history of both the Jewish State and the body governing world football.
On Friday, the Palestinian Authority will propose a resolution at the FIFA Congress in Zurich to suspend Israel from international competition. Despite the unfolding scandal rocking the organization, the controversial vote remains on the agenda.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the proposal, claiming a threat to Israel was a threat to FIFA. “The effort to hurt Israel will destroy FIFA because if they start with one country they will move on to another and it will collapse the organization. The effort to suspend Israel is severe and we will resist it unequivocally.”
Netanyahu mentioned his remarks to FIFA president Sepp Blatter, who is up for re-election at the Congress and facing calls for his retirement: “I told Blatter that if he allows the suspension of Israel he will have allowed for the destruction of FIFA.”
So, is it about “another blatant attempt by the United States to extend its jurisdiction to other states” or some other “entity” (not that there is much difference between them)?
So, is it about “another blatant attempt by the United States to extend its jurisdiction to other states” or some other “entity” (not that there is much difference between them)?
I’m leaning towards the latter. I think the anti-Russian gambit, is the secondary goal, and which is also to draw attention away from an attempt to squash or manipulate the Israel expulsion vote so Israel doesn’t get the boot they so richly deserve. The use of McCain & Menendez (very, very loyal AIPAC traitors) to make anti-Russian noises reinforces that speculation. I wouldn’t be surprised, either, if Netanyahu threatened Blatter a lot worse behind the scenes, when they met, than he did in the media.
It is reminiscent of the 2001 World Conference against Racism (WCAR), also known as Durban I (31 August to 8 September 2001), which was about to state that “Zionism is a form of racism.” The United States and Israeli delegations withdrew from the conference. “Several countries were unhappy with the final text’s approach to the subject, but all for different reasons. Syria and Iran were unhappy because their demands for the language about racism and Israel had been rejected by the Conference, the latter continuing its insistence that Israel was a racist state. Australia was unhappy with the process, observing that ‘far too much of the time at the conference [had been] consumed by bitter divisive exchanges on issues which have done nothing to advance the cause of combating racism’. Canada was also unhappy” (as Wikipedia remembers it).
All the way towards the conference the press was making a strong case of the “irrelevance” of UNO, which should have been dismantled!
Then followed 9/11!
RT finally put up an article about Israel vs FIFA:
Seems Blatter is fave to win the presidential vote. Many MSM outlets now toning down and some even focusing on the banks involved……if some of these US corporates are questioning FIFA – let them go as sponsors and get other non- US sponsors – I am sure there are many lining up.
My deepest concern is the jurisdictional/legal issues of the US’s behaviour in this whole matter. That is the most worrying factor not a corrupt organisation in Switzerland.
The BDS movement is gaining serious traction:
this is a high-profile attempt at roll-back, proving AIPAC/CFR Zionists control Washington foreign policy.
Look beneath everything and its clear what’s coming down the line.
A division of Ukraine between Poland and Russia – with perhaps a sliver given to Hungary.
Poland gets the West, Russia gets the East, South & Kiev, Hungary gets Transcarpathia.
The imminent implosion of the Kiev Junta is making this likelihood more and more inevitable by the day.
History rhymes but never repeats.
Russia-Germany and Poland (Molotov-Von Rippentrop)
Russia-Poland and Ukraine (Putin-Duda).
The election of Duda has made this a certainty. I predict it will happen in the same month as well – September.
Heard it here first folks (first since Duda’s election I mean).
Julian, Interesting idea the artitioning of Ukraine, but we heard it first many moons ago from Pepe, complete w a nice map.
Yes – its been raised before (I’m certainly not the first to raise it) – I’m saying that the election of Duda is the key. If Pepe mentions Duda, well good on him (I’ll read his piece).
Although Duda is said to be anti-Russian, he can still cut deals with them – particularly a deal that on face value looks so good for Poland – reclaiming former territories of Poland that have been ‘stolen’ by Stalin (Polish narrative).
Just consider – how popular was Putin after the reunification of Crimea? And how much of a boost to his personal (Duda’s) popularity would it be to reunite Galicia into Poland?
If Ukraine slides further and further into disharmony and trouble doesn’t this possibility just grow and grow and grow? Particularly if the West/ EU/ US truly abandon Kiev to its well-deserved fate of self-destruction.
The difference though was the population.Crimea was 60% Russian,over 90% Russian speaking.And most of the others were “Russian World” loyal.Now Galicians aren’t Polish.Most don’t speak Polish (or at least very well).And I’m not sure how “Polish World” most of the Bandera there are.But,hey,if it gets the real Ukraine reunited with Russia,I’m all for it.Lets have Poland see how they like living with Galician fascists.Somebody buy the popcorn for that one.
The other thing is – there is no way Poland will agree to cede any territory to Germany – why should they? They aren’t the ones directly causing trouble (although their fingers are all through the pie in reality – but this isn’t really widely known now is it).
Yes of course England would “offer” to host 2018 World Cup. They are still angry about losing the bid. Looks like they will try anything to get it.
Below are excerpts from two articles from 2010 right after England lost out to Russia.
“A late final lobbying push led by the prime minister David Cameron, David Beckham and Prince William and a well-received final presentation was not enough to avoid a humiliating exit and spark huge recriminations.
The England bid team went into today’s vote believing they had secured enough votes to make it through the first round and could see “a path to victory”.
Instead, Russia – the long-time favourites backed by the Fifa president Sepp Blatter – won the race with their pitch to open up new markets.”
England beaten as Russia wins 2018 World Cup bid – http://www.theguardian.com/football/2010/dec/02/england-russia-win-2018-world-cup
Vladimir Putin, arriving in Zurich on Thursday night to meet with Sepp Blatter, accused the British media of running an “unacceptable” campaign.
“These countries blame people of corruption, they blame people without any grounds or evidence, it can be seen as putting pressure on Fifa members, and then they put it in their mass media all over the world.”
2018 World Cup bid voting:
First round: England 2 votes. Belgium-Holland 4. Spain-Portugal 7. Russia 9. (England eliminated)
Second Round: Belgium-Holland, 2. Spain-Portugal, 7. Russia, 13. (Russia wins with an absolute majority)”
The author of this article compares the attacks (media and “legal”) on Blatter with the tactics used against Strauss-Kahn, who got “excommunication/herem” from the ZPC/NWO.
Уже не игрушки
(Yandex – partial) Remember, the West has already played that card in the story of Dominique Strauss-Kahn?
It seems to me Switzerland signed their suicide note. I wonder if they will manage to survive on chocolates and watches.
Some seem to be doing a good job in helping their adversaries build the foundations of their house.
Don’t forget they also have cheese and army knives. I am a fan of both these items.
Yes, and their cheeses have holes in them — sold by weight, but marketed by volume.
You don’t understand, guys. This is how Switzerland survived the last two, three hundred years – as a ‘Club Med’ for the rich & famous, spies and mafiosi, the oligarchs & aristocrats.
Clean streets, fresh air, nice flowers everywhere. Everybody loves it – and tips accordingly. And as they say: the show must go on.
My definition of Switzerland’s neutrality:
Why takes sides, when you can make business with all parties?
The funniest part was that Zurich’s two major newspapers (whose headquarters are both in walking distance from the Baur au Lac, the hotel where the arrests took place) were taken by surprise and had to quote from the New York Times when the story broke. The New York Times on the other hand was at 6 am with a camera team at the hotel. Just in time for the arrests… :-)
It is clear Switzerland had been thoroughly infiltrated with CIA spies, and still is.
Ed Snowden was there for 2 years or so, and it is during that time that he discovered all the dirty tricks CIA and NSA has been doing over there, and changed completely his perspective as an American.
LOL: if the US gives up its empire
BIG IF. Only fools would think the chance of this IF is better than slim to none.
Yes I am in full agreement . Up until now I looked forward to the day that Blatter would receive his long overdue come-uppence but in these particular circumstances I hope he gets re-elected. The USA has been a minor player in the soccer scene but suddenly the FBI feels the need to begin prosecuting corruption. I think the the growing insecurity of Washington is beginning to show.
While the arrogance of the US to claim jurisdiction over non nationals, acting outside the US, doing stuff (even if corrupt) that has nothing to do with the US, is stunning to say the least. There is of course a precedent. The US has been doing this for some time already in their sweeping up of ‘terror’ suspects anywhere in the world, and dropping such hapless suspects into a black hole of endless incarceration, without any legal rights or due process of law.
Maybe if they can’t get the accused FIFA officials extradited Obama can order a drone strike to take them out.
re: Why is everybody else looking away?
One big reason is that people want to see if standing up against the Anglo system is possible. Russia has tried it, and may be about to be smashed. We hope not, but it is far from obvious that Russia can survive with an economy based on selling natural resources and not even having a semi-independent financial/banking system. And, unfortunately, over the last 15 years, Putin has done little to de-oligarchize Russia. And that is one of the reasons for the disaster in the Ukraine. Russia’s oligarchs are buddies and otherwise have lots of relations with Ukrainian oligarchs.
The world is ruled by force, and only reasonably equal power groups can have diplomacy and law and all that the way Russia wants. Carl Bildt said something along the lines of “The troubles have come about since Russia wanted to be treated as an equal. That isn’t how NATO and the EU can work.” To say nothing of the US. Nigeria is not an equal of the EU or US, and neither is Russia. Not technologically, and not economically. The complication is nukes.
The immediate reaction of the Western MSM sewer showed that this provocation was pre-planned. The target is plainly the 2018 Russian World Cup, and Qatar, Uncle Satan’s ally in destroying Syria is just ‘collateral damage’. And the Western presstitutes did not dare mention that Israel was in danger of being expelled from FIFA for its racist barbarities against Palestinians. All in all, another example of how barking mad as well as evil the Western elite are, and how recklessly and viciously aggressive.
Having just finished reading this thread, there are some interesting comments.
One comment mentioned 209 votes in a secret ballot,which reminded me of the number of countries in the world today.
“Membership within the United Nations system divides the 206 listed states into three categories: 193 member states, two observer states, and 11 other states. The sovereignty dispute column indicates states whose sovereignty is undisputed (190 states) and states whose sovereignty is disputed (16 states).”
Overwhelmingly the world nations loath and despise the US,the UK, France,Isreal and Nato…
The nations of the world seek a leadership,one that will defeat the post WW2 Hegemony, i.e. the IMF,World Bank and the ‘Exorbitant Privilege’ of the US $.
Russia and China have shown that leadership and will continue to enjoy overt and covert support from the weaker,more vulnerable nations.
True there are some ‘weak reeds’, but one only has to look at how quickly countries, normally aligned (joined at the hip) with the US, jumped ship to join the AIIB recently.
The ‘World Terrorist Organisation’ aka WTO is to be superceded by the TTIP in europe and the TPP in Asia.
These ‘new improved treaties’ /sarc off, classified as secret ‘eyes only’ stuff,are so detrimental to national sovereignty, that they cannot be debated or discussed in public.
Last year China stated that they would no longer buy US treasuries and doubled down on an enormous building spree,bridges,canals,rail projects and pipelines everywhere.
Part of the ‘De-dollarizing’ the world & ‘spend it while you can’ mode is the national and state attitude towards gold. The chinese remember the Anglo/US destruction of their silver money, as do the Indian people.
In the early 1920’s Britain set about destroying the Silver Rupee, replacing it with paper currency, and millions starved(again!).
With vast amounts of monetary silver dumped on the market by the US/UK governments,silver lost 50% against the US $ & the British Pound.
In turn this became a calamity for chinese people and forced monetary change on China, probably worse than the opium wars, when the british would only accept silver for their opium,grown in India.
The 70th aniversary victory parade showed the entire world where the long term interests lie for a sane, prosperous world, the ‘west’ is bankrupt and it’s fraudulent monetary / financial system exposed for all to see.
Before the next crash the elites want to exchange all those trillions of digital dollars,pounds,euros etc etc, for something tangible like, every airport,seaport, all the harbours and cranes,everything Real .
For decades the buzzword has been ‘privatization’…but noone wants rubbish….and the latest buzzword is ‘cashless’ societies where all you have is ‘credit’……
“Good Luck With That One”
And yet, if we take the British case, there are 53 countries in the British Commonwealth out of about 65 that were in the Empire depnds when and what you count – stuff like Gibraltar and Falklands is excluded. (53/65 = 82% So 82% clearly did not loathe Britain & some of the Moslems, like Kuwait, UAE and Oman are Commonwealth in all but name). Compare this with Russia. Excluding Yugoslavia, China, North Korea, Cuba and Vietnam, there were 21 countries under direct SU control. Only 4, maybe 5 are joining the EEU. 5/21= 24% . Include the exclusions and it is 19%. You need to adjust your rantings to reality.
By signing the controversial Debt Moratorium Law yesterday, “Shokoshenko” has started a new front in the provocations against Russia! https://farsight3.wordpress.com/2015/05/29/8ung-29-5-2015/
This is like throwing a glove in the face of the contrahend – a bit lesser than spitting in ones face directly…
If executed, it will leave Russian banks alone exposed with € 25 Bill. while the totally outstanding debt from Kiew towards Moscow sums up at € 40 Bill.. Interestingly, Ukraine plays the same card that Varoufakis pulled out of his sleeve some weeks ago – and it’s called “odious debt”.
Moreover the IMF will be “settled” most possibly, what means this Wall Street dominated institution of global supression is to be paid out on her outstanding loans against Ukraine.
How will Russia react?
Swiss police confirm bomb threat received at FIFA congress in Zurich
Well, that was not unexpected. The Irgun-Mossad (theory) terror gang cannot receive the torrent of bad publicity that would follow and expulsion.
Saker, I got turned on to your site awhile back through Zero Hedge. It is excellent and although I am broke lately, I will certainly contribute when I have money.
You must be a fellow American, since you call it soccer. I am a fan of football (not hand-egg–thanks Dymitri). The reason the empire’s incursion into football is important is two-fold (1) soccer is the #3 or #4 sport in the US, unlike the vast majority of the world and (2) Football (soccer) is the “world sport” for a reason. Go to a slum in Lagos or Manila and which sport do you think the kids will be playing? Football of course. Agreed that FIFA is a totally corrupt organisation. But this is just one more attack by the US on the rest of the poor, mostly brown-colored world.
What difference would it make if Ali would substitute Sepp in this smoke screen saga?
Wow, the MSN could not have been better coordinated: “Evil FIFA” is the new “Putin is Hitler”. No restraint, no subtlety.
The Palestinians withdrew their bid to have Israel expelled:
Palestine drops motion to suspend Israel from FIFA
The chance that Israel will faithfully observe the compromise agreement worked out is nil, though.
RT is reporting Ali has withdrawn his bid for prez, so Blatter is reelected. Ali was losing pretty badly, even with all the zio-media efforts to smear Blatter.
Dear The Saker and Community,
Sepp Blatter has won the vote and will have another 4 years – phew! A bit of a slap to the USA/EU who thought they could put their stooge in place.
Let’s now see EU and US boycotting Russian World Cup….
Also the vote on Israel was dropped by the Palestinians.
Even a bomb threat couldn;t stop the vote.
Let us now look at the banks who laundered the money – hmm……
About the one -and hopefully only- time I’ve actually cheered for Sepp Blatter to be re-elected. I know he’s not -how can I put this?- pristine and innocent of backroom deals, to say the least, but I just couldn’t accept the US ruling over FIFA. And please, the correct term is football. It involves a ball, two goals and 22 pairs of feet. Football.
Feel inspired to post this obscure 80s “oldie” (with political punch) here.
We have seen this juvenile petulance from Barrack Obama in the past. We have heard it in the language used by both Nuland and Pyatt when discussing the US sponsored coup in Ukraine last year. Now we have further petulance over sporting events. This year it is soccer tournaments. Last year it was the F1 race in Sochi but they were, quite rightly, ignored.
It seems that US foreign policy, in all spheres of influence, is carried out on the basis of and at the level of a bunch of hormone imbalanced, sub-average IQ, teenagers playing a computer game with our lives.
Laws, principles, ethics are all ignored if there is already (or can be bought) sufficient influence on the governments and institutions of the west, and unfortunately there are plenty of these.
God help us!
Sepp Blatter has been re-elected!
Take that USA/EU… Not everyone is buying their rubbish or their threats. Good to know.
Dear The Saker,
It looks like the US and the EU can’t accept a democratically elected FIFA President and will continue their witch hunt. There is real sour grapes still from UK and the UEFA President too:
Saker, I would also change your title to AZ 0 World 1
Please keep politics out of sport. The AZ’s treat this as a regular coup d’etat scenario.
Sorry the title of article is misnomer.
it is anglo versus the rest of the world.nothing to do with jews -they are small fry in english plots of evil.
more than that it shows how much england has control over american foreign ,defence and domestic polices.
do you think USA cares about foot ball or corruption?
england has been after blatter for last 6 years. the last time english were promoting the qatari corrupt man to be rival candidate as stooge of English to be president of fIFa,
but blatter won. now typical of the english when they lose in democratic election, they start crying faul and then do attempts to undermine the election result,
english ,having been unsuccessful in attempts to demonize fIFa and blatter asked their stooge usa to do to fIFa through american tactics of extra judicial bullying in which usa as msucle man of england is good at.
English always works like that
that is the typical way their regime change plan works
that is why Napoleon was stupid not to have invaded england and killed all English plotters then
that is why hitler was stupid to have believed english in their support against Russia
putin must destroy that evil england by political ,means and must resort to measures against propaganda of anglos journalists,
it is the english journalists who supplied the papers to FBI to initiate the proceeding against fifa officials.
please rmmeebr that.
all english journalists are british spies who must be culled on sight.
Nice effort to deflect attention from Israel in this issue.
For me, it sounds like the typical Hasbara.
no, he is always against England in everything

no, he is always against England in everything
how do you say that when all the overwhelming evidence points to british involvement in most of the plots.
also here it was the english journalists from uk who took credit for giving documents to FBI in order to prosecute those FIFA officials.
as if the British have any jurisdiction to put blame on someone anywhere in the world and get things done by american arms-that is always the presumption by the British .
and english media and football association =who all live off stolen money from abraod and not only from Russia-were the main ones pressing the issue. Why would USA be interested in soccer?
all to help the english .it is not about russia. it is about evil engalnd which tries to get aways from all crime. it ran olympics 2012 despite its crime in making wear on syria and libya. while it was instrumental in boycotting sochi olympics on ground that Russia does nto encourage children to know about homosexuality-such a sad excuse!
as for black money laundering –less said about the english role in money laundering
you keep blaming or crediting “the english” for actions clearly planned and carried out by the USA or NATO or EU. You need to start showing proof that “england” causes these actions. Something vaguely similar in previous centuries does not count as proof. eg how does “england” force USA to bomb other countries?
Missed you, “anonym”! You really must read the website Reformation.org. It is the repository of all things English and nefarious. Napoleon was a British agent, by the way. You will die laughing reading it, it is so funny. Did you know that Wallis Simpson was MI6 and a man? And the High Five was invented at Lord Kitchener’s funeral, he was so hated around the world. That is, if he HAD a funeral. Winston Churchill sent him out to sea and made sure he never came back.
Which reminds me of this HILARIOUS video: youtu.be/JmZMvRpYHmk
Did you see in the media how the english football association and English media jumped up at the impossible chance to hsot 2018 world cup like a hungry greedy dog?
that corrupt british govt. had temerity to talk about corruption-libor and gutter of city of london and tax haven is forgotten the very center of money laundering is kept under carpet?
I always said that putin was stupid to have gone twice to london olympics-he should have led a coalition to boycott london olympics 2012 because england was attacking libya and syria iraq that time worse crime than what happend in Afghanistan which was excuse to boycott mnoscow 1980. but Russian being such a fool they never learn.
now they are elft withg their partners attacking thgem afrom all sides and stupid lavrov was talking about usa being amenbale to friendship with russia again.
unless some patriot sort out this foreign minsiter traitor lavrov ,russia is in big trouble because russia is delusional.
england is the main enemy and villain which Russia must destroy by any means.
Don’t forget that Putin jailed Khodorkovsky, one of the many Oligarchs who had raped Russia’s resources after Glasnost, nationalised his oil and gas fields and paid off the debts of the Russian Federation in 5 years. Just before his arrest Khodorkovsky wired all his money to Jacob Rothschild who runs the corrupt City of London, without proper financial regulation, so that 60% of the UK GDP is fraud.
Gangster Bankers: Too Big to Jail
February 15, 2013
Source: Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone
he U.S. Justice Department granted a total walk to executives of the British-based bank HSBC for the largest drug-and-terrorism money-laundering case ever. Yes, they issued a fine – $1.9 billion, or about five weeks’ profit – but they didn’t extract so much as one dollar or one day in jail fro===================
Cecil von Renthe-Fink is a mere footnote in the pages of history. A Prussian aristocrat who joined the Nazi Party in 1939, Renthe-Fink however has a claim to fame. In August 1943, he drafted a memorandum proposing a European economic union with a common central bank and currency. But there was a caveat – if the new union was to be a success, Britain must be kept out because according to the German diplomat it was “the continent’s ancient enemy”.
Today several nations, especially Russia, would agree with that assessment. With 66,000 of its nationals on the run from justice, and a large number of them having found asylum in Britain, Russia is the most affected by Britain’s policies.

“You may have heard of the Libor scandal, in which at least three – and perhaps as many as 16 – of the name-brand too-big-to-fail banks have been manipulating global interest rates, in the process messing around with the prices of upward of $500 trillion (that’s trillion, with a “t”) worth of financial instruments. When that sprawling con burst into public view last year, it was easily the biggest financial scandal in history – MIT professor Andrew Lo even said it “dwarfs by orders of magnitude any financial scam in the history of markets.”
That was bad enough, but now Libor may have a twin brother. Word has leaked out that the London-based firm ICAP, the world’s largest broker of interest-rate swaps, is being investigated by American authorities for behavior that sounds eerily reminiscent of the Libor mess. Regulators are looking into whether or not a small group of brokers at ICAP may have worked with up to 15 of the world’s largest banks to manipulate ISDAfix, a benchmark number used around the world to calculate the prices of interest-rate swaps.” From rolling stone magazine.
Federal and state authorities have chosen not to indict HSBC, the London-based bank, on charges of vast and prolonged money laundering, for fear that criminal prosecution would topple the bank and, in the process, endanger the financial system.
“In 1839, the Chinese Emperor launched an anti-opium offensive, which included the confiscation of all opium stocks in the hands of Chinese and foreign merchants. The merchants put up a fight, but were ultimately forced to concede, turning in their opium stocks after being indemnified against losses by British officials.
In response, however, the British launched a propaganda campaign against China, accusing it of violating Britain’s right to “free trade.” Britain sent its fleet to China, to force the Chinese to capitulate to the opium trade. The action, known as the First Opium War, resulted in the Treaty of Nanking in 1842, under which China not only capitulated to the opium trade, but also agreed to pay reparations to the opium runners and gave the British control of the island of Hong Kong. However, the treaty did not specifically legalize opium, so the British launched a second Opium War, which resulted in the 1856 Treaty of Tientsin, which legitimized the opium trade and opened China up to foreigners even more.
As the opium and other trade with China expanded, Britain’s new territory of Hong Kong became a major imperial commercial center. The opium dealers gathered together to form a bank, the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank, as the financial flagship of the British opium trade. Over time, the bank—now known as HSBC—would extend its reach into the drug fields of the Middle East and Ibero-America, as befitting its role as the financial kingpin of Dope, Inc.
According to the IMF, the global elite are holding a total of 18 trillion dollars in offshore banking havens such as the british controlled the Cayman Islands.
England as pirate rogue state today and yesterday.
Just as Britain is the save heaven for all kinds of wanted top political and financial criminals.
60% of the UK’s GDP is financial fraud, dabbling in stolen money from the third world with help of british approved dictators in those nations.-otherwise humanitarian bombing is coming your Way!
Money laundering is the business of English -they never graduated from the piracy days.
The global money laundering system Britain put in place as its colonies dwindled is the core element of its new Empire. It consists of a string of tax havens around the world operating with London [ Images ] as a global hub. The system now caters to all sorts of criminals, ranging from super-rich tax evaders and corporate bigwigs hiding the proceeds of mispricing of trade to mafiosi engaged in garden variety organised crime.
The tax haven system washes an estimated $2 trillion annually into the “legitimate” world economy. According to a recent report from Washington-based Global Financial Integrity, an NGO headed by a former World Bank economist, it also drained about $6 trillion out of poor countries over the last decade. Adding up the estimates made by a number of experts indicates that the total of illicit assets in tax havens is some $30 trillion, double the GDP of the United States.
That massive pool of money generates the multi-billion dollar “hedge funds” that have made a travesty of free market mechanisms, especially commodity markets.
Indians struggling with the ever increasing cost of petrol and diesel can blame it on hedge fund manipulations that have kept oil prices over $100 per barrel amidst the worst recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s. They can also blame the system for India’s pandemic of mega scams: without a convenient way to stash black money the corrupt would not dare do such massive fraud on their people.
In the defence of its imperial interests it has precipitated two World Wars and is now presiding over an empire of crime that drains the poorest countries of their hard earned wealth. During the days of Empire and now, treachery has been a staple in Britain’s international relations.”
Americans and british are running Afghanistan opium trade and London is the centre of money laundering.
“Corruption: An essential part of British life
Corruption has always been part of British life although the British deluded by their sense of entitlement have portrayed the foreigner as immoral while depicting the Briton as bearing the burden of honesty.
The British politics and policies have always been the stumbling block for the creation of a Greater truly UNITED Europe with Russia, aspiring to control Europe by using America. “America has lost its independence to British Financial Empire City of London.” So America is actually controlled and run by the england.
Western imperialism guided by Pentagon but ordered and planned by england , has attacked and invaded over 30 countries,since WWII. Started by killing 4 millions in Korea,and she hasn’t stopped or shown any regrets for the past sixty years. Should we continue to witness these genocides by USA&Co for another sixty years,or ask for the formation of a new international court,approved by NAM ,SCO and BRICS ,to demand justice for the citizens of this global village of ours.
Nato was created by england .Troops in Germany were to keep the Germans down & the Russians out”now Russians are gone but parasite anglos including English coward troops are still there.!
