É sempre refrescante ler Shamir. E embora eu não partilhe, por profissão, do seu inoxidável optimismo, devo reconhecer que neste seu artigo abundam umas quantas verdades óbvias, duras como punhos.O breve elenco de algumas delas:
« Mainstream media easily outperformed by producing so many “fake news” stories that Putin could never compete. Just by virtue of Putin’s approval? Do they think a Russian agent gets a service magic wand to bend American minds?
Nothing wrong, mind you, with trying to influence elections. It is done all the time. My countrymen Israelis have their mighty AIPAC for such a purpose, and they are usually successful. (And yes, they read your emails). They succeeded in blocking the second terms of Jimmy Carter and George Bush, Sr. They said no man or woman could get elected to the Senate or Congress without paying obeisance to the AIPAC and receiving their blessing. If you object, or even notice their meddling, you would be called an antisemite and expunged from the polite society.»
Tradução: Seria um escândalo de lesa-exclusividade que os russos (ou quaisquer outros unicórnios de arremesso) ousassem influenciar a eleição dos presidentes americórnios: afinal, esse, como tantos outros, é um direito exclusivo dos pencudos e da sua máquina de ruídos infernais (vulgo mainstream mérdia - MSM).
«It happened that a group of like-minded individuals controls all the mainstream media of the West. Nobody can compete with the NY Times, and the Washington Post and Reuters, Hollywood and the Guardian and Le Monde, and all this media has been united behind La Clinton. What is more important, these Masters of Discourse are fully integrated with an obscure world-embracing entity behind the visible power. This entity influences every election in the world, and it is used to winning. This time they lost, and they can’t still believe it and accept this defeat.»
Tradução: A Máquina de Ruídos Infernais não é perfeita. E a saturação acarreta efeitos secundários e danos colaterais. Ou de como não se pode enganar toda a gente durante todo o tempo.
«What is this obscure entity, and why is it so hostile to Donald Trump? I’ll tell you. In my young son’s class there was a bully. A silly, but big and strong boy who made the life of other kids, including my son, quite miserable. He enjoyed beating the weak ones, and there was not a nasty trick that he did not try. The bully had a sidekick, a minnow of a boy, who could not harm a baby. We paid little attention to him. It happened that the sidekick was transferred by his parents to another school, as they moved to a far away suburb. And to my great surprise, the big boy ceased to bully other kids. Moreover, he became a good friend of my son and of other classmates. It turned out that the sidekick was actually the evil spirit behind the big boy’s shenanigans. As he was gone, the big boy turned out to be a rather good fellow, real sport, and even his academic marks improved drastically.
The obscure entity integrated with the mass media is the evil spirit that gained possession of the fine strong body of America. And they meddled in, influenced, or subverted many elections in many countries from the days of The Quiet American.»
Tradução: Neoconas à cabine. Entre outros...
«A few days ago, in Cincinnati, Ohio, the President-Elect had vowed that the US will stop trying to overthrow world governments. No more regime changes, he said. This is a sea change.
That is why Trump has been attacked by the CIA, the most evil organisation in the known universe. Assassinations, revolutions, civil wars, bribery, drug industry are the CIA daily tasks. They are the weapon of choice in the hands of the Obscure Entity, their Nazgul. The CIA is anti-American: American soldiers fight in Afghanistan, while the CIA produces, buys and sells the bulk of Afghan opium trade.
The CIA spoils relations between Americans and people of the earth. The CIA gives lessons of torture to the darkest regimes. The CIA stood by at 9/11, and it pushed the US into new wars since then. The CIA organised and supplied the Middle East terrorists of the Islamic State and al Nusra. They are the guys that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and steamrolled the Iraq War.
If you doubt where do you stand regarding Trump, after the CIA attack on him there should be no doubt.»
Tradução: A CIA é uma organização global, senão mesmo a epítome-mor de todas elas. Para efeitos de confeitaria de regimes o território dos Estados Unidos não se distingue de qualquer outro no planeta. Por via das coisas, mesmo antes da investidura (e ainda durante a própria campanha eleitoral) , o Trump foi sendo ungido de todos os requisitos que podem justificar (isto é, que podem constituir num "imperativo de segurança nacional" - vá, não riam) o seu "processamento democrático". As formas de remoção do corpo indesejável são múltiplas e variáveis.
«Forget about Democrats and Republicans, this is a fake distinction. There are two parties, the Party of Real Economy (builders) and a Party of Virtual Economy (destroyers), or, if you prefer, people who love their countries and their working people – and agents of the Obscure Entity. Virtual Economy includes finances, military industry, and other no-gooders. Trump is a man of Real Economy who needs no war, but peace for rebuilding his country the USA to make it productive and good for its working people. So he chooses a good practical man of real economy to do his diplomacy.»
Tradução: da Obscure Entity e dos seus agentes sabiam, de cátedra, os medievais. Pena que estejam cada vez mais esquecidos e ostracizados. Compreende-se porquê. Espero, a terminar, que o optimismo do bom Shamir tenha alguma âncora na realidade futura.
