Shocking: Jim Fetzer turns against Trump in favor of Bernie Sanders because of Soleimani assassination

On January 3, at the direction of President Trump, missiles shot from American drones assassinated Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad, Iraq.

Soleimani was a major general in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps  and commander of its Quds Force, a division primarily responsible for military and clandestine operations outside of Iran. He was described by an ex-CIA operative as “the single most powerful operative in the Middle East today” and the principal military strategist and tactician in Iran’s effort to combat Western influence and promote the expansion of Shiite and Iranian influence throughout the Middle East.

The air attack that killed Soleimani and four members of Iraqi militias followed attacks on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad on December 31, 2019, by supporters of an Iran-backed Iraqi militia.

The U.S. Defense Department said Soleimani had approved the attacks on the American embassy and was planning further attacks on American diplomats and military personnel. Trump justified the assassination on the grounds that Soleimani posed an “imminent threat” to American lives. But the assassination was not approved by Congress, nor did it have the consent of the Iraqi government, leading to controversy regarding the legality of killing an Iranian military leader over Iraqi airspace.

It is not just Democrats and Hollyweirdos who are in an uproar over President Trump’s greenlighting of the drone assassination. Shockingly, Jim Fetzer has joined the anti-Trumpers, convinced that the Soleimani assassination signifies Trump’s caving in to Israel.

Note: James Fetzer is a professor emeritus at the University of Minnesota-Duluth, and the author and editor of countless volumes on conspiracies and false flags, including the banned-by-Amazon.com Nobody Died at Sandy Hook: It Was a FEMA Drill to Promote Gun Control, which is available free in PDF format.

On January 4, 2020, Fetzer wrote these comments on his blog:

After having tolerated his previous pro-Israel moves–the Embassy to Jerusalem, Golan Heights to Israel, defunding the UN Palestinian-refugee effort and the expanded definition of “anti-Semitism”–this for me is the last straw. I can no longer support this Netanyahu-stooge for President of the United States. I am going to have to find a more suitable candidate, which will be tough sledding. But I am fed up with the Trump disaster.

On January 5, 2020, Fetzer wrote these comments on his blog:

I am distraught. He [Trump] appears to have gone stark raving mad.

Actually, I believe he has virtually destroyed his prospects for reelection at a single blow. He was supposed to get us out of these wars in the Middle East, not start new ones. And now the Democrats have a bona fide reason to impeach him, which even I would support. I can no longer stand with this gullible sap who should have known better. He allowed himself to be played by [Israeli Prime Minister] Bibi [Netanyahu]. I would rather have a real American president than an Israeli stooge. I can no longer endorse him. Bernie [Sanders], ironically, may be our best bet, especially were he to run with Tulsi, where their foreign policies are virtually indistinguishable and she strengthens him in ways no other running mate could. A stunning 2020 reversal.

Latest reports are that Trump’s poll numbers are UP. I am dismayed but the American people are extremely ignorant of history, even relatively recent history. This is more than embarrassing. I can no longer support him.

In other words, Fetzer no longer supports Trump because he believes Trump is an Israeli stooge. Instead, Fetzer declares his endorsement of Bernie Sanders for the presidency — a socialist Jew who volunteered in an Israeli kibbutz for several months when he was 22, supports gun control, and who will collapse the U.S. economy with his multitrillion-dollars Medicare-for-all and the climate-change Green New Deal.

I’d like to help with a few more facts and questions: 1. As we all have learned, so much of what we’re told is the opposite of the what independently-verifiable and objective data reveal. 2. Israel engages in open warfare upon the world’s most populated and dense concentration camp: Gaza. Trump supports Israel. Worthy of public support or dissent? 3. Iran had their democracy overthrown by the US in 1953 by CIA Operation Ajax, installing the Shah as US puppet. CIA trained the Shah’s black police (SAVAK) to terrorize and torture Iranians for reclaiming their democracy. Here’s the White Paper… Read more »

Then, Pearl, you’re in great shape as so many people now threaten the “hostile government” that the US is with forever illegal Wars of Aggression.

Seriously, how can you justify the US as a “non-hostile government” when it is the US who overthrew Iran’s democracy in 1953, then supported Saddam/Iraq to kill a million Iranians in that war from ’80-88?

I’m sorry, but supporting Bernie Sanders, however reluctantly, remains the act of an unprincipled actor. Period. There are no mitigating factors; there can be no appeal to ignorance, from a person who is presenting himself as a thought leader. Some things are non-negotiable. What’s your motive in defending this, though? Your understanding of the shortcomings of American foreign policy should not blind you to evils perpetrated by others whose motives are no more altruistic and are certainly more detrimental to Americans.

Killing enemy soldiers in combat or criminals in self-defense are examples of non-wrongful but deliberate killings that are not murder. The status of the fetus is the crucial issue.

Not all women have that victimhood mentality. Some realize they have the God-given capability to create the miracle of life. Along with that blessing comes the responsibility for the consequences of your actions.

The ability to create and produce human life is very empowering. The ability to abort a BABY via reproductive choice is progressive newspeak for murder.

The present Iranian government had considerable support from Mossad in overthrowing the Shah. He had turned against Israel and actually provided support for Egypt in the Yom Kippur war. Ironically the Shah himself had supported the mullahs in taking down Mohammed Mossadegh in 1953. Shortly after assuming power he began programs of modernization and pursued a course that is unacceptable to the zio/globalist elites, that of independence and nationalism. So he had to go. The Iranian theocracy is utterly corrupt and is involved in, among many other things, massive drug trafficking, mainly heroin/opium from Afghanistan, again with assistance from Mossad/CIA.… Read more »

And there are dozens of them in the House & Senate. Of course, all are Democrats except for one. Dual citizens should be ineligible to hold any elected US office. Period. End of story.

IMO there is little question as to where the first loyalty of dual-citizens lies. It is with the “other state”. Sanders maintains that he is not a dual citizen, that he is American. Fine. I still think his primary loyalty is to that other state. He may say otherwise but I’ve noticed that politicians lie. My opposition to him is more fundamental. He is, IMO, for all intents and purposes, a zio-Marxist carpetbagger with a Brooklyn accent who slithered into a socialist/progressive niche in VT.

What have you done that you consider “thick”? “thin”? Curious because he takes out #1 bad guy and then you want to go all socialist. How much about Iran do you know? I know a lot. If you have some secret intel or something I would like to see it. I’m just trying to understand why a person would want to support a socialist. By the way,… Read more »

He isn’t alone in his “rush to judgment” — Trump has been president for 3 years now, so there’s been plenty of time to judge him and whether he has lived up to his campaign rhetoric, or even tried to, including and especially his rhetoric about ending long-standing, pointless, and expensive, in lives and money, foreign entanglements — and now this reckless extrajudicial murder of a foreign military commander, which is only the last/latest straw, not a “rush to judgment” — the fact you describe it that way shows, more than anything, how divorced from reality you are about all… Read more »

Any time the question of which Candidate to vote for arises,the answer,to ME,is obvious. Either Trump or NOBODY. So far,I’ve seen nothing that would sway me to NOT vote,for THAT merely endorses the Socialist-Left. Voting for anyone but Trump reaches the same end result,in MY book. Since President Trump has brought America FAR more good and success than any President (or president,in Obama’s case) in the last 25 years,or more,sometimes in SPITE of some at-the-time questionable methods (which instincts turned out to be “on the money” later on),It’s unlikely I’d consider voting for anyone except Trump. As I’ve said before,there’s… Read more »

If this article is correct as I belive it is, Trump Has committed a War Crime and Murdered a man operating under a Flag of Truce.. and Trump most certainly has alligned all America with the historic relic destroying ISIS savages. What Trump is doing is removing ALL “social norms and ethical, moral boundaries” Trump tears up Treaties, Geneva Conventions, and leaves Civilization in ruins.

Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani had flown into Baghdad on a normal carrier flight, carrying a diplomatic passport. He had been sent by Tehran to deliver, in person, a reply to a message from Riyadh on de-escalation across the Middle East. Those negotiations had been requested by the Trump administration. So Baghdad was officially mediating between Tehran and Riyadh, at the behest of Trump. And Soleimani was a messenger. Adil Abdul-Mahdi was supposed to meet Soleimani at 8:30… Read more »

“Once again: it does not matter whether the assassination
order was issued by President Trump, the US Deep State or the usual suspects – or when.” Is this not another way of saying that regardless of who the president is the result would have been the same? Which leads us to “the usual suspects”

I think it well established historically that the askenazi fakes who have hijacked the heritage of the true Hebrews, have had, and do have, grievous influence with in the U.S., and with U.S. presidents since at least the mid 19 century. Not to mention the power they wield through out the globe with their control of the world bank.

Knowing that there are many more commenting here, much more educated on the matter than I, I can only ask, if not Trump, how could any fool feel more at ease with any single one of the alternatives?

FOTM world has not been the same without Lophatt, his humanity and razor-sharp intelligence, his sardonic LOL one-liners. Now a conspicuous silence. I’ve been experiencing the same for awhile now, on and off health issues, caring for those saying their last goodbyes. Time takes a toll, life is life, but our work is not yet finished. My prayers for you and your mother. 94 – God bless her

I don’t know if Fetzer was ever behind Trump or just an interested observer. As a harsh critic of Israeli influence re: American Mideast policy it’s almost impossible to believe that he would now support a pro-Israel Jewish Marxist for president. I don’t see how it’s possible to swivel that wildly. I suspect something else is going on

Look. I like Tulsi. But I would rather have a President who is a Jew but puts American first than a President who is not but puts Israel first, which I’ve been forced to conclude is Trump.

I have no objection to a Jew being president, none whatsoever. A Sanders presidency, however, I am convinced would be the final nail in the coffin of this once-great country. Israel has a very firm grip on the levers of power in this country. There have been no presidents in my memory who have not “put Israel first”. They wouldn’t have been elected otherwise. JFK was one exception but his forceful opposition to Israel acquiring nuclear weapons probably contributed to his untimely demise. Trump understands realpolitik, I’m certain he has made his deal with the Synagogue of Satan. Only time… Read more »

Sorry, Jim Fetzer. You haven’t won me over with this reasoning. When I voted for Donald Trump, it was for the lesser of 2 evils. What good has come of it is clear. But why be surprised at the man’s weaknesses? And how can you endorse Bernie Sanders, a 21st century Bolshevik?!!! If Bernie is elected, the very moment it happens, the economy would immediately suffer a fatal heart attack. Remember that this is what happened when Obama was elected. Not when Obama took office, but when the election results came in. Risk takers are not willing to invest their… Read more »

Thanks, Will. You understood me correctly.

I am a huge fan of Eowyn, but I am not of some of those posting here. Keep up the good work. Nice to have some who take the time to appreciate what others are saying before they go on the attack. You are a thoughtful guy. Thanks.

“acting like” or directly calling someone “jerk, stupid, etc” is usually considered an act of condescending judgement. Directly calling a person a “jerk” is insulting who they are, what they are, what you think of them. “Acting like jerks” is an insult of their behavior, how they are acting in the present. Which is worse? They both are insults about the person. Is one insult better them the other? How does a person become a jerk. Just standing there doesn’t make you a jerk. A person can only be a jerk if they did something that earns the name. A… Read more »

The bifurcated view of left and right as two mutually exclusive default positions is limited thinking. One should be able to take what is useful from each side without wholly rejecting the other. For instance, the medical establishment was set up early in the 20th century by the AMA to restrict access to the profession in order to profit from the monopoly. They could see the enormous profits made by the marketing of aspirin, the first pharma product, and folded that profession into their business plans. Their objective was to separate the caregiver from the patient, and make doctors into… Read more »

We have something approximating single-payer here in MA with MassHealth. It was originally dubbed RomneyCare when that schmuck was governor although he vetoed the bill, which was easily overridden by the demonoid legislature. It was the template for Obamacare. So everybody here has access to health care. Not that we have a choice, if you don’t have health insurance here you’re a criminal. And I don’t see that the overall health of the people here has improved as a result. Wherever I look I see grotesquely obese formerly human monstrosities.

Yes, anything can work if done right. The idea with MassHealth was that by making health insurance mandatory it would cause premiums to decline, which of course it didn’t. The State, meaning the taxpayers, picks up the considerable slack. And Masshealth covers everything including “gender reassignment” which is ridiculous. I think that as a society we have a responsibility to provide care for people who are unable to care for themselves but we really need to tighten up our definition of disability. In the UK the NHS used to allow people to opt for private insurance. It wasn’t perfect but… Read more »

Yes, autism used to be quite rare, now commonplace. 50 percent by 2050 – astounding. Unfortunately I can believe that.

As for the candidates and the upcoming election, I am a realist/fatalist.

In choosing candidates to support there is no point in insisting on ideological purity,… Read more »
