“I fought for nothing.”

For a while there, I was a real star. High up in my class at West Point, tough combat deployments in two wars, a slew of glowing evaluations, even a teaching assignment back at the military academy. I inhabited a universe most only dream of: praised, patted and highly respected by everyone in my life system and viewed as a brave American soldier. It’s a safe, sensible spot. For most, that’s enough. Too bad it was all bunk. Absurdity incarnate.

The truth is, I fought for next to nothing, for a country that, in recent conflicts, has made the world a deadlier, more chaotic place. Even back in 2011—or even 2006, for that matter—I was just smart and just sensitive enough to know that, to feel it viscerally.

Still, the decision to publicly dissent is a tough one. It’s by no means easy. Easy would be to go on playing hero and accepting adulation while staying between the lines. Play it safe, stick to your own, make everyone proud. That’s easy, intellectually immature—the new American way.

When you take the journey of dissent, you lose friends, alienate family, confuse confidants and become a lonely voice in your professional world. I’ve spent years sitting in military classrooms from West Point to Fort Knox to Fort Leavenworth as the odd man, the outlier, the confusing character in the corner. It’s like leaving the church, becoming an atheist, all while still living in the monastery. Still, the truth is that the military is more accommodating than one might suspect. I wrote a critical book, published some skeptical articles, but it’s not as though anyone ever outright threatened me. The pressure is different, more subtle: veiled warnings from superiors, cautious advice from mentors

I waited too long. I admit as much. Maybe I needed a decade to stew, or perhaps my brief sojourn in civilian graduate school shook something loose. Nonetheless, a few years back, the emotional weight was unbearable and out poured the dissenting waves.

Looking back, I can just about see my own path—what I saw, how it felt—and trace the guideposts and way points on the road to a spiritual and intellectual rebirth. The images flicker, mental fragments that explain my wayward trek to dissension.

In Baghdad, I saw chaos unleashed, watched a sectarian civil war unfold, witnessed the strife our ill-advised, unprepared invasion unleashed. We were terrified voyeurs to the tragedy playing out before us. Militias left gruesome bodies in the streets for us to find. The Sunnis cut off heads, the Shiites preferred power drills to the temples and joints. Both sides attacked us. Through it all, locals treated us to stories of how matters had been better under the secular brutality of Saddam Hussein.

Then there were the patrols. So many patrols. They were mostly useless, of course. Show presence, provide security, don’t get blown up. Then our kids started getting hit. It comes in flashes. Scrubbing your sergeant’s blood out of the Humvee so you can patrol the next morning. Cleaning up another soldier’s skull, fatally penetrated by a copper slug, his face frozen in a look of terror, trash from the filthy east Baghdad street beside his cheek.

The aftermath of car bombs in the marketplace. The haze of smoke and stench of burning flesh. Ordinary Iraqis: the usual victims.

Leaving the war zone. Back home. Alcohol. My driver’s suicide, hanging from a belt in his closet.

Time passes, another mate dead—overdose, prescription pills. Dead kids, my boys, and the wives and mothers I did not have the courage to face for years.

Nothing improved. Not really. The end state was Islamic State, fracture, more death, Trump, a new American crusade on the Euphrates.

—  §  —

Next was Afghanistan, the unwinnable war. The 13th-century irrigation system. Realizing the locals don’t want to live in our image, don’t yearn to be Americans. Knowing most villagers—at least down south—generally agreed with the basic contours of the Taliban agenda. “Allied” sheikhs and “friendly” Afghan government officials who grew the illegal poppy our patrols slogged through. Obtuse American colonels who wanted to wall off or barb-wire Afghan villages as if we were in Baghdad, South Africa or worse.

Discerning, eventually, as I sat on the sandbags of my small outpost—the Alamo of Kandahar province—that we only really held the ground we stood on. Nothing else. Turning down invitations from Afghan “partners” to attend their regular hash-smoking buggery parties. Explaining to US-trained Afghan officers—outsiders from the north who didn’t even speak the local language—that they must stop torturing their own deserters. Appearances and all.

Watching young men lose limbs and lose lives to pad the resumes of aggressive majors who want to be colonels and colonels who want to be generals. Some could hardly spell “Afghanistan.” Still, they mostly succeeded in promotion. Maybe they’ll run the next war.

Seventeen years, thousands of Americans still there, and the Taliban control more of the country than at any time since Uncle Sam’s invasion. We may never leave.

Through it all was the guiding question: Has anything I’ve done—or we’ve done—made Americans’ lives any better? More importantly, has it measurably improved the world? What if we’ve made it worse?

On a day in Afghanistan in 2011, I realized everything I was doing, and the only thing I still cared about was damage control, protecting our troops from needless death. I basically was phoning it in and should have known it was time to quit, lest I lose more of my soul.

Even so, the easy path beckoned.

Of course, I’d tried to convince myself, as so many do, that staying in the military is courageous, that it’s possible to change the system from the inside, and that good people, critical thinkers, need to stay the course rather than jump ship. Maybe that’s true, maybe it’s fantasy. Who knows?

This business damages you, takes something from you, a permanent loss. It affects everyone differently. Probably, I’m a distant outlier.

Anyway, nowadays my heart is with the Rohingya in Myanmar, Palestinians in Gaza, places, oftentimes, where I’ve never even been, people I’ve never met. It’s a sad world once you’re that inside yourself.

Still, life trudges along. My wife shops for paint colors for our new house, engages with the kids, lives in the moment. I struggle with such practicalities, because, in so many ways, I’m not here. Not most of me. I’m in Baghdad, staring in wonder at the aftermath of a truck bomb. In Afghanistan, delivering a memorial address for one of my dead troopers, a kid, to be honest, that I hardly knew.

I’ll likely die a sad man. This much I know.

But for now, I can give voice to a different path, a nobler cause, a chance, at least a chance, of common sense, sober strategy and, just maybe, a semblance of peace—something a whole generation has never known. In my own minuscule way, I’ll try.

We, the few of us who care to question, owe at least that much.

  1. No, do not finish your life sad Danny. Rejoice, for even the blind man said, “One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!”

    It is clear that the people here think from a base of life experience, unpleasant as it can be, and some no doubt were once blind too.

    Stay where you are. Find like minded people. Keep in touch with them. Stay optimistic. I have a bad feeling that we are all going to need your particular life experience soon, but put to a better cause.

    1. Retired General Wesley Clark was told by a serving officer:-

      “We’re going to take out seven countries in 5 years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran”

      General Clark was stunned by this and asked “Why?

  2. I noticed he is still in the army, still working for the jews. He didn’t retreat in a monastery to overthink his sins. Does he want absolution by writing this article?
    No so this is another article about soldiers who made a good career, good salary and killing for the jews. He chooses to be a soldier as he did when he started.
    I have no respect for soldiers who fight for the jews.

    1. @ Marcus

      I have no respect for soldiers who fight for the jews.

      You forget that he is “disillusioned” soldier. Is he to be condemned for regretting that he got caught up in the charade? What do you expect him to do? Return his army pension to the government? Become a homeless tramp? Let his wife and children starve to death with him?

      Get real!

      Are YOU to be condemned just because you married a woman in good faith and later on divorced her for cheating on you? Of course not! One does things … and later on regrets them.

      1. There are still a couple of old SADF soldiers fighting in the US army. They have a good reputation. They have the same problem. In post 1994 South Africa no one wants to employ them, and they have families to feed. I had a colonel as a friend, who resigned post 1994 from the new Defense Force, and where he once was a commander over 1000 subordinates, he today is a pauper living from the income of his son. His retirement package was embezzled by another South African, who defrauded an US investor in South Africa and my friend, and today sits in jail.

        Then you get a few aspiring heroes of the younger generation who look up to us old veterans and want to be heroes themselves in a country where the old SADF does not exist anymore. So they then join the US army, just to burn their fingers like the US major above. They all start young and idealistic, looking for a cause to fight for. We all were like that. The problem is when politicians start to lie to these young men. The big wake up call is when the first casualties start flowing in. Then it is not a game anymore.

        I have no words for this tragedy. We at least still fought for a clear cause with great success. The direct visible threat of communism on our borders just a shout away, not in some foreign country thousands of miles away. Lots of us are still bitter that everything has since been given away by characterless politicians. So I can emphathize with this major.

        My son hears my tales, sees YouTube and suddenly himself develops ambitions. I told him to stay far away from joining a military, except if a direct threat like we had back then confronts the country. In all other kind of wars one just becomes cannon fodder for interest groups non-related to national security. These interest groups play on your feelings of patriotism and abuse your innocence and lack of experience. In return you end up with missing body parts and then suddenly everyone has forgotten you.

  3. His disillusionment was caused by the death of his troopers not because he was complicit with the death of millions of innocents. The world will be a much better place if this clown suicides himself.

    1. i agree with you. He should commit suicide as soon as possible. Cry baby cry. You knew from the beginning that your bosses are jews who don’t care about laws and human rights as you also didn’t care, ‘soldier’. Even now you don’t care being still ‘ soldier’.

    2. The draft for Vietnam ended just before I came of age and not knowing any better I would have been stupid enough to go and this man did what he was brainwashed into doing not knowing any better and just trying to do the “right thing”. Don’t judge, criticize or accuse unless you have walked in that man’s shoes, it takes great courage to come “out” as he has.

      1. Agreed!! In 1966, I was going to be drafted, so I joined the submarine navy. I got a draft notice in the mail in boot camp. HA!!

  4. The major wrote:

    “…a semblance of peace—something a whole generation has never known.”

    So…. even though he wrote he was “High up in my class at West Point”…. he never learned there has never been any peace once the London jew Bankers’ US Military moves in. He still does not thoroughly acknowledge that fact. That’s the shame of it.

    1. @ Pat

      I think the bankers answer to the rabbis. The will to rule the world has been the essential thought of the Jewish religion for 4000 years, in my opinion. Interest on loans is just the primary method by which they work for this

      Is it a shame that you have never realized this? I think it’s great that you are doing as well as you are. The same goes to this military officer.

        You wrote:

        “..in my opinion.”
        “..in my opinion.”

        “Is it a shame that you have never realized this?”

        Please make some sense. You are a completely illogical trans-sexual. It is impossible for me to “realize” YOUR “OPINION”… or to “realize” anyone else’s “opinion”, for that matter. It would be more logical for you to write, “It is a shame you don’t agree with my opinion.” And then, I would not do so, since it is your “opinion”, not mine. I was not there. 🙂

      2. Jews, or rather the top Jewish Merchant-Bankster families, have ruled the world for at least 200 years — see it as the culmination of the Age of Discovery 😉 The US was a project of the globalist Jewish Oligarchy from the beginning.

        If this is news to you, then please allow me the dubious pleasure of welcoming you to the Old World Order — it has been like this for quite some time. The “New World Order” nonsense is to keep us waiting around for a change in circumstances that has already happened.

  5. I loved this article because – IT CAN’T, IT JUST CAN’T- DEFINITELY INFER in a conclusive way THAT these wars are or were for israel!
    The wars by the anglo on Arabs for example are because of oil, greed and empire.
    I have a question for those who are inclined to believe that we in Israel somehow “convince” the wasp to go to wars and die for us…
    Did us Jews convince the wasp to start the crusades?
    No, we didn’t .. right?
    If i tell you to go jump from from a ten story building,,, would you do it?
    no, right?
    was the war on Vietnam for Israel?
    no, right?
    did the wasp drop the atom bomb on Hiroshima because the Jews told them to?
    no, right?
    let’s use the words a black man said not too long ago in Brooklyn
    -“the white man will do anything for money”-
    that is it!
    go ahead -person who is inclined to believe the above article- ponder on my argument and while you do don’t forget the yellow ribbons and the rest of the paraphernalia you wave when you go to wars.
    there you have it

    (((POST IF YOU DARE)))

    1. I urge everyone reading this to watch the Russian movie The 9th Company about the Judaeocommunist efforts in Afghanistan and their abandonment of troops there.

      And now – Arch Stanton’s rebuttal to Avatar’s Yarmulke

      I have a question for those who are inclined to believe that we in Israel somehow “convince” the wasp to go to wars and die for us…

      No! Jews force white men to fight their wars. Like cowardly, schoolyard bullies, Jews get others to fight their battles for them, even as their soulless, mindless, American military golem is doing at present in the Near East. Jews force the white man to fight their wars by means of their vast network of economic, political and legal channels. Look at the insidious manipulation of an inflated economy with few well paying jobs, leaving young people with little other option than to join the military.

      Jews leave goyim no choice but to do their bidding with the specter of harsh legal and economic measures for anyone resisting their genocidal efforts. Jews are cowards, abject cowards, too afraid to even admit their Jewish identities; at least until their power is so overwhelming they can murder whomever they please with impunity. Then, and only then, do Jews make a sham show of bravery.

      Look what happened to Bradley Manning. Jews turned him into a whiny, little tranny bitch for resisting the Jews’ effort to require military personal to take an oath to the Jews U.N. instead of swearing allegiance to American national sovereignty. The shot of the huge, buck Negro “escorting” a handcuffed Manning to prison was an intentional subliminal message for anyone else considering thoughts along the same lines. Who else but the depraved, homosexual Jew would think of turning a male soldier into their butt-fuck toy as revenge for not sucking them off at their command? Jews are sick, twisted, sexually depraved perverts that lead the way to every sexual perversion of which one might even consider. That is why they control more than 90% of the porn industry. That is why we have all the sexual perversions being mainstreamed among goyim children, against the will of their parents.

      Were you ever on any battle lines? Did you join the IDF? How many have you killed in hand-to-hand combat in the name of achieving global Zionism, like the white man that wrote this article? Jews are disgusting cowards. The only thing more disgusting than their cowardice is their willingness to have others die for their self-serving ambitions.

      Did us Jews convince the wasp to start the crusades? No, we didn’t .. right?

      Wrong! It was Judaeo Christians, imbued with the Jews’ murderous, psychopathic mindset, that forced stupid goyim to march off to the Crusades and die fighting their hated, historical Arab enemy. What other reason might any European have had outside the Judaeo Christians’ murderous psychopathic intolerance of other religions? And say, isn’t that the very same religious intolerance Judaism shows towards all other people and their religions? Might I also remind readers that it was a Temple authority – A Jew prosecutor, a persecutor and murderer of Jesus’ followers that invented Christianity with a vision not unlike those stated by Auschwitz Jews claiming to see smoke belching from non-existent chimneys. As the saying goes, “Jews set ’em up and Jews knock ’em down.”

      Was the war on Vietnam for Israel?

      No. The war was for American Jews that wanted war and created a false flag to achieve it. The war had some very beneficial effects for the Jews’ destruction of American culture. The war was responsible in helping to create the opposition of youth that eventually tore American culture asunder. Remember Bob Dylan, né Zimmerman, and his popular anti-war songs? Remember the anti-war protestors with its Jew supporters wielding bullhorns from well behind the battle lines, urging the gullible goyim to get their heads broken for resisting the very war Jews created in the first place?

      I do, I was there on both sides at various points in my life.

      And where are all those anti-war, Jew mamzers today? Why not a peep out of anti-war protestors? Could it be that war now weighs heavily and directly in the Jews’ favor? And who was in charge of ramping up a war that eventually led to the deaths of 60,000 killed-in-action, over 150,000 wounded, and some 1,600 missing. Dead goy are all good for the Jews. So who was in charge of the Vietnam war?

      LCDR Johnson, March 1942

      “Lyndon Johnson was appointed a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Naval Reserve on June 21, 1940. While serving as a U.S. Representative, he was called to active duty three days after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941. His orders were to report to the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations in Washington, D.C. for instruction and training. Following his training, he asked Undersecretary of the Navy James Forrestal for a combat assignment. He was sent instead to inspect shipyard facilities in Texas and on the West Coast. In the spring of 1942, President Roosevelt decided he needed better information on conditions in the Southwest Pacific, and to send a highly trusted political ally to get it. From a suggestion by Forrestal, Roosevelt personally assigned Johnson to a three-man survey team covering the Southwest Pacific.

      Johnson reported to General Douglas MacArthur in Australia. Johnson and two U.S. Army officers went to the 22nd Bomb Group base, which was assigned the high risk mission of bombing the Japanese airbase at Lae in New Guinea. Johnson’s roommate was an army second lieutenant who was a B-17 bomber pilot. On June 9, 1942, Johnson volunteered as an observer for an air strike mission on New Guinea by eleven B-26 bombers that included his roommate in another plane. While on the mission, his roommate and his crew’s B-26 bomber was shot down with none of the eight men surviving the crash into the water. Reports vary on what happened to the B-26 bomber carrying Johnson during that mission. Johnson’s biographer Robert Caro accepts Johnson’s account and supports it with testimony from the aircrew concerned: the aircraft was attacked, disabling one engine and it turned back before reaching its objective, though remaining under heavy fire. Others claim that it turned back because of generator trouble before reaching the objective and before encountering enemy aircraft and never came under fire. This is supported by official flight records. Other airplanes that continued to the target came under fire near the target at about the same time that Johnson’s plane was recorded as having landed back at the original airbase. MacArthur recommended Johnson for the Silver Star for gallantry in action: the only member of the crew to receive a decoration. After it was approved by the Army, he personally presented the medal to Johnson.”

      “For gallantry in action in the vicinity of Port Moresby and Salamaua, New Guinea, on June 9, 1942. While on a mission of obtaining information in the Southwest Pacific area, Lieutenant Commander Johnson, in order to obtain personal knowledge of combat conditions, volunteered as an observer on a hazardous aerial combat mission over hostile positions in New Guinea. As our planes neared the target area, they were intercepted by eight hostile fighters. When, at this time, the plane in which Lieutenant Commander Johnson was an observer, developed mechanical trouble and was forced to turn back alone, presenting a favorable target to the enemy fighters, he evidenced marked coolness in spite of the hazards involved. His gallant actions enabled him to obtain and return with valuable information.”

      “The gallantry displayed must have taken place while in action against an enemy of the United States, while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing foreign force, or while serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the United States is not a belligerent party. The Silver Star Medal is awarded for singular acts of valor or heroism over a brief period, such as one or two days of a battle. Air Force pilots and combat systems officers and Navy/Marine Corps naval aviators and flight officers flying fighter aircraft, are often considered eligible to receive the Silver Star upon becoming an ace (i.e., having five or more confirmed aerial kills), which entails the pilot and, in multi-seat fighters, the weapons system officer or radar intercept officer, intentionally and successfully risking his life multiple times under combat conditions and emerging victorious.”

      A Silver Star for “gallantly” riding on an airplane? Sounds about right for a Jew “hero.”

      “An unknown number of servicewomen received the award in World War II. Four Army nurses serving in Italy during the war—First Lieutenant Mary Roberts, Second Lieutenant Elaine Roe, Second Lieutenant Rita Virginia Rourke, and Second Lieutenant Ellen Ainsworth (posthumous)—became the first women recipients of the Silver Star, all cited for their bravery in evacuating the 33rd Field Hospital at Anzio on February 10, 1944. Later that same year, Corporal Magdalena Leones, a Filipino American, received the medal for clandestine activities on Luzon; as of 2016, she is the only female Asian American to receive a Silver Star.”

      And to think all they had to so was climb on an airplane!

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ § ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      A few months ago, the Associated Press reported that newly released tapes from US president Lyndon Johnson’s White House office showed LBJ’s “personal and often emotional connection to Israel.” The news agency pointed out that during the Johnson presidency (1963-1969), “the United States became Israel’s chief diplomatic ally and primary arms supplier.”

      But the news report does little to reveal the full historical extent of Johnson’s actions on behalf of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. Most students of the Arab-Israeli conflict can identify Johnson as the president during the 1967 war. But few know about LBJ’s actions to rescue hundreds of endangered Jews during the Holocaust – actions that could have thrown him out of Congress and into jail. Indeed, the title of “Righteous Gentile” is certainly appropriate in the case of the Texan, whose centennial year is being commemorated this year. Appropriately enough, the annual Jerusalem Conference announced this week that it will honor Johnson.

      Historians have revealed that Johnson, while serving as a young congressman in 1938 and 1939, arranged for visas to be supplied to Jews in Warsaw, and oversaw the apparently illegal immigration of hundreds of Jews through the port of Galveston, Texas….

      A key resource for uncovering LBJ’s pro-Jewish activity is the unpublished 1989 doctoral thesis by University of Texas student Louis Gomolak, “Prologue: LBJ’s Foreign Affairs Background, 1908-1948.” Johnson’s activities were confirmed by other historians in interviews with his wife, family members and political associates.

      Research into Johnson’s personal history indicates that he inherited his concern for the Jewish people from his family. His aunt Jessie Johnson Hatcher, a major influence on LBJ, was a member of the Zionist Organization of America. According to Gomolak, Aunt Jessie had nurtured LBJ’s commitment to befriending Jews for 50 years. As young boy, Lyndon watched his politically active grandfather “Big Sam” and father “Little Sam” seek clemency for Leo Frank, the Jewish victim of a “blood libel” murder of his thirteen year old employee, Mary Phagan, in Atlanta. After three different court convictions, Frank was finally lynched by a mob in 1915, and the Ku Klux Klan in Texas threatened to kill the Johnsons. The Johnsons later told friends that Lyndon’s family hid in their cellar while his father and uncles stood guard with shotguns on their porch in case of KKK attacks. Johnson’s speechwriter later stated, “Johnson often cited Leo Frank’s lynching as the source of his opposition to both anti-Semitism and isolationism.”

      Already in 1934 – four years before Chamberlain’s Munich sellout to Hitler – Johnson was keenly alert to the dangers of Nazism and presented a book of essays, ‘Nazism: An Assault on Civilization’, to the 21-year-old woman he was courting, Claudia Taylor – later known as “Lady Bird” Johnson. It was an incredible engagement present.

      FIVE DAYS after taking office in 1937, LBJ broke with the “Dixiecrats” and supported an immigration bill that would naturalize illegal aliens, mostly Jews from Lithuania and Poland. In 1938, Johnson was told of a young Austrian Jewish musician who was about to be deported from the United States. With an element of subterfuge, LBJ sent him to the US Consulate in Havana to obtain a residency permit. Erich Leinsdorf, the world famous musician and conductor, credited LBJ for saving his live.

      That same year, LBJ warned Jewish friend, Jim Novy, that European Jews faced annihilation. “Get as many Jewish people as possible out of Germany and Poland,” were Johnson’s instructions. Somehow, Johnson provided him with a pile of signed immigration papers that were used to get 42 Jews out of Warsaw. But that wasn’t enough. According to historian James M. Smallwood, Congressman Johnson used legal and sometimes illegal methods to smuggle “hundreds of Jews into Texas, using Galveston as the entry port. Enough money could buy false passports and fake visas in Cuba, Mexico and other Latin American countries. Johnson smuggled boatloads and planeloads of Jews into Texas. He hid them in the Texas National Youth Administration. Johnson saved at least four or five hundred Jews, possibly more.”

      During World War II Johnson joined Novy at a small Austin gathering to sell $65,000 in war bonds. According to Gomolak, Novy and Johnson then raised a very “substantial sum for arms for Jewish underground fighters in Palestine.” One source cited by the historian reports that “Novy and Johnson had been secretly shipping heavy crates labeled ‘Texas Grapefruit’ – but containing arms – to Jewish underground ‘freedom fighters’ in Palestine.”

      On June 4, 1945, Johnson visited Dachau. According to Smallwood, Lady Bird later recalled that when her husband returned home, “he was still shaken, stunned, terrorized, and bursting with an overpowering revulsion and incredulous horror at what he had seen.” It is notable that the “horror” Johnson supposedly witnessed was later proven to have been staged by Jewish/American military psyops agents. Dachau was later officially “downgraded from “Nazi death camp” to mere “concentration camp” in the 1970s.

      A decade later while serving in the Senate, Johnson blocked the Eisenhower administration’s attempts to apply sanctions against Israel following the 1956 Sinai Campaign. “The indefatigable Johnson had never ceased pressure on the administration,” wrote I.L. “Si” Kenen, the head of AIPAC at the time. As Senate majority leader, Johnson consistently blocked the anti-Israel initiatives of his fellow Democrat, William Fulbright, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Among Johnson’s closest advisers during this period were several strong pro-Israel advocates, including Benjamin Cohen (who 30 years earlier was the liaison between Supreme Court justice Louis Brandeis and Chaim Weizmann) and Abe Fortas, the legendary Washington “insider.”

      Johnson’s concern for the Jewish people continued through his presidency. Soon after taking office in the aftermath of John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, Johnson told an Israeli diplomat, “You have lost a very great friend, but you have found a better one.” Just one month after succeeding Kennedy, LBJ attended the December 1963 dedication of the Agudas Achim Synagogue in Austin. Novy opened the ceremony by saying to Johnson, “We can’t thank him enough for all those Jews he got out of Germany during the days of Hitler.” Lady Bird would later describe the day, according to Gomolak: “Person after person plucked at my sleeve and said, ‘I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for him. He helped me get out.’” Lady Bird elaborated, “Jews had been woven into the warp and woof of all [Lyndon’s] years.”

      The PRELUDE to the 1967 war was a terrifying period for Israel, with the US State Department led by the historically unfriendly Dean Rusk urging an evenhanded policy despite Arab threats and acts of aggression. Johnson held no such illusions. After the war, he placed the blame firmly on Egypt: “If a single act of folly was more responsible for this explosion than any other, it was the arbitrary and dangerous announced decision [by Egypt that the Strait of Tiran would be closed [to Israeli ships and Israeli-bound cargo].”

      Kennedy was the first president to approve the sale of defensive US weapons to Israel, specifically Hawk anti-aircraft missiles. But Johnson approved tanks and fighter jets, all vital after the 1967 war when France imposed a freeze on sales to Israel. Yehuda Avner recently described on these pages prime minister Levi Eshkol’s successful appeal for these weapons on a visit to the LBJ ranch. Israel won the 1967 war, and Johnson worked to make sure it also won the peace. “I sure as hell want to be careful and not run out on little Israel,” Johnson said in a March 1968 conversation with his ambassador to the United Nations, Arthur Goldberg, according to White House tapes recently released.

      Soon after the 1967 war, Soviet premier Aleksei Kosygin asked Johnson at the Glassboro Summit why the US supported Israel when there were 80 million Arabs and only three million Israelis. “Because it is a right thing to do,” responded the straight-shooting Texan.

      The crafting of UN Resolution 242 in November 1967 was done under Johnson’s scrutiny. The call for “secure and recognized boundaries” was critical. The American and British drafters of the resolution opposed Israel returning all the territories captured in the war. In September 1968, Johnson explained, “We are not the ones to say where other nations should draw lines between them that will assure each the greatest security. It is clear, however, that a return to the situation of 4 June 1967 will not bring peace. There must be secure and there must be recognized borders. Some such lines must be agreed to by the neighbors involved.” Goldberg later noted, “Resolution 242 in no way refers to Jerusalem, and this omission was deliberate.” This historic diplomacy was conducted under Johnson’s stewardship, as Goldberg related in oral history to the Johnson Library. “I must say for Johnson,” Goldberg stated. “He gave me great personal support.”

      Robert David Johnson, a professor of history at Brooklyn College, recently wrote in The New York Sun, Johnson’s policies stemmed more from personal concerns – his friendship with leading Zionists, his belief that America had a moral obligation to bolster Israeli security and his conception of Israel as a frontier land much like his home state of Texas. His personal concerns led him to intervene when he felt that the State or Defense departments had insufficiently appreciated Israel’s diplomatic or military needs.”

      President Johnson firmly pointed American policy in a pro-Israel direction. In a historical context, the American emergency airlift to Israel in 1973, the constant diplomatic support, the economic and military assistance and the strategic bonds between the two countries can all be credited to the seeds planted by LBJ.


      Lyndon Johnson’s maternal ancestors, the Huffmans, apparently migrated to Frederick, Maryland from Germany sometime in the mid-eighteenth century. Later they moved to Bourbon, Kentucky and eventually settled in Texas in the mid-to-late nineteenth century.
      According to Jewish law, if a person’s mother is Jewish, then that person is automatically Jewish, regardless of the father’s ethnicity or religion. The facts indicate that both of Lyndon Johnson’s great-grandparents, on the maternal side, were Jewish.

      These were the grandparents of Lyndon’s mother, Rebecca Baines. Their names were John S. Huffman and Mary Elizabeth Perrin. John Huffman’s mother was Suzanne Ament, a common Jewish name. Perrin is also a common Jewish name.

      Huffman and Perrin had a daughter, Ruth Ament Huffman, who married Joseph Baines and together they had a daughter, Rebekah Baines, Lyndon Johnson’s mother. The line of Jewish mothers can be traced back three generations in Lyndon Johnson’s family tree. There is little doubt that he was Jewish.

      “the white man will do anything for money”

      And who maintains tight control over the purse strings? The goddamned Jew, that’s who! Or are you going to try telling us the Federal Reserves’ central bank is not run solely by a cabal of Jew money men? For all the Jews’ pretentious blather about “women’s equality,” when it comes to controlling money, like their historical Temple brethren, Jews are thoroughly patriarchal in nature; no women allowed at the top of their control pyramid. But then patriarchal Jews are also master of the slave trade they exercise over European white women lured to Israel with lies about nonexistent opportunities. Lying, murdering, psychopathic slime, thy name is Jew.

      Ponder your “argument”? Don’t make me laugh. I do not have the Jewish penchant for blind hatred. Such vicious hate, “neffer forgotten and neffer forgiven” is simply not in my goy nature, but if it was, Jews would be first on the list.

      1. I like that slogan NEVER AGAIN! … WARS FOR THE JEWS (I mean) – and not whatever the Jew who came up with it meant.

      2. We again ask ourselves, now that South Africa has become free (a free for all) – where are all those anti-apartheid town criers of this world, the rent-a-crowd lot, denouncing the new unjustices in South Africa? They have served their purpose, they have disappeared into the thin mist. Nobody misses them. Stupidity is part of mankind.

    2. Hi Avatar,
      The big oil companies want peace. They can’t make money in a war zone.

      Peace brings prosperity. War brings death, disease and chaos.

      1. JK –

        War zones still produce oil.

        War brings in military contractors – mercenaries – and construction contractors. They take over the oil fields, banks and poppy fields every time. Heroin & other drugs produce MORE profit to the London Bankers than does oil. Oil companies are in the drug business as well. Diversified portfolios!! 🙂

      2. This 2007 article shows, with pictures, this hard to believe reality. It says a few words on the killing of Pat Tillman, he was very popular, a guy that could threatens the official narrative.


        Not just Oil companies, the US Government! The London Bankers did it already in China, in the nineteen century. The Jewish Sassoon family known as “Rothschilds of the East” was running the show. There were two Anglo-Chinese wars, the First Opium War (1839-42) and the Second Opium War (1856-1860).

        We don’t know the magnitude of the dollar-drug business, billions or trillions?
        The FED has a huge problem, its “pumping” too much dollars, the Pentagon missing trillions are an example. The dollar loses some of its value in this process; it’s a law of nature, thermodynamics if you want. The petrodollars has a similar function as the “poppydollars”, if there is a world demand for heroin, or drugs, and it is sold in dollars, this trade increases the demand for US dollars worldwide, with increases its value.

        (((They))) are doing their best to pretend the fiat money inflation is just 2% a year. Food products are becoming smaller without changing the price. Often, the inflation calculus methodology is changed; some guy on Zerohedge (I couldn’t find the article) did an inflation calculus with the 1980s methodology, his results: 10% year inflation! One final remark of no less importance: when faking the inflation rate it is possible to pretend there is economic growth (GDP). There is no growth, what we have is an increase in prices.

    3. If USA and its allies didn’t meddle in the Middle East, Israel wouldn’t last a week.

  6. @ Sickofit & Marcus,

    Your comment that this admirable man should commit suicide is absolutely dreadful! That you should have such sentiments, who are you compared to him?

    1. I did not kill people in OTHER countries! For the jews!
      So he should kill himself or repent deeply AND get out the jewish miltary. He chose voluntary to work for the jews. No mercy he didn’t have mercy for others in foreign countries. He is just a willing accomplice as are many in the jewmarican army.

      1. @ Marcus

        It is intentions that determine the morality of actions, not their material consequences, according to Christian thinking. The officer’s intention was to serve his country, and what could be more admirable than that?

      2. @ Kendra Blewitt

        It is intentions that determine the morality of actions, not their material consequences, according to Christian thinking.

        Apparently he’s still in the army, right? No morally competent person would want anything to do with the U.S. military. Therefore I agree with Marcus.

  7. The bolsheviks infested in Dirty City fired general MacArthur a long time ago.. it’s too bad he didn’t run for president like general Patton was doing..
    I wonder what they threatened MacArthur with…
    Korea, Vietnam, everything since – all wars now are orchestrations… it’s not about victory anymore..
    What are we doing?
    We’re forcing the globalists’ neocon version of geopolitics on the rest of the world…
    First rule of the NWO – everybody will be subject to the rothschilds version of the central bank..
    Next comes the full on super surveillance mind control state…
    Zionist bankster wars really are for suckers now…
    If you want to get involved, form up a constitutional militia and get one of your guys elected sheriff…

    1. Bark –

      There are no common law sheriffs anymore. They are COMMERCIAL entities.

      The sheriffs have been kidnapped by the NWO’s invention of total control… the UCC.
      It was formerly the SIC(Standard Industrial Classification), and now NAICS(North American Industry Classification System).

      The sheriffs’ COMMERCIAL corporation business codes are applicable in the 92 series.

    Yes I know that… there are no real sheriff’s or judges anymore… it’s all been corporatized.. some states don’t even have sheriffs… Connecticut, Alaska, Hawaii, right?
    But you notice I said form a ‘constitutional’ militia.
    How’s that work?
    You build your card carrying membership of constitutionalists up to the point where between them and their friends you have a majority in your county…
    They all have radios, they all have guns.
    You will have a HQ, maybe the old VFW, which is also a public access TV media center…
    All the hillbillies are ready for it…
    One of you runs for sheriff on constitutional platforms… city council, mayor… the mayor appoints the chief of police…
    kinda like trump with his resonant issues about fake news, the border security, domestic manufacturing..
    But you go further than a mazaltavy NYC schmutz like him ever would…
    First thing – you make it plain you will be sticking to the bill of rights and that no federal mfers will be doing anything in your county unless you say so..
    Your militia will back you up and if they want to fight about it that’s fine.
    Make it plain if they kill you like they did James traficant, former sheriff and rep. from Ohio, somebody will pay…
    If I ever decided it was time for me to start killing my enemies, I sure wouldn’t have to go halfway around the world to find them..
    You will denounce the funny money, the fed bank, IRS… Let it be known and watch em flock in.
    Article 1, Section 10… lawful money only…
    You will support only Trial By Jury. Judges will be informed they are only referees, the jury’s in charge of the courtroom…
    You’ll be getting rid of all electronic voting…
    You kick all the jew-Jesuit masons and catholic subversives the hell out of everywhere you can…
    You will incarcerate any illegal aliens for deportation and arrest anyone who hires them..
    Unconstitutional courts – can all go to hell…
    Somebody tell trump that….

    1. Bark –

      “You build your card carrying membership of constitutionalists up to the point where between them and their friends you have a majority in your county…”

      In US law – The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard. So what??????

      I know those who have tried it in Houston & Tampa in the 80s. It will not work. The tracking of organizations is greater today than in 1770s.

      As soon as anyone organizes they are targets. The Republic of Texas founders were all killed by law enforcement and/or imprisoned.

      These are a few who tried and failed before Google’s expert tracking:
      The Alabama Constitutional Militia and the Michigan Militia.
      Militia of Montana and the Texas Constitutional Militia and the Republic of Texas.
      The Sons of Liberty Alabama also.

      Tells Specter about jews:

      As soon as anyone uses firearms against others their whole family is destroyed. I have seen it happen dozens of times.

      Not a good idea to make yourself a known target.


      Republic of Texas – May 1997:


      A member of the militant secessionist group known as the Republic of Texas was shot and killed today in a gun battle with the Texas authorities in the Davis Mountains here.

      The man was one of two group members who fled on foot on Saturday, as the police held their fire and as the republic’s leader and four other followers were surrendering. He was killed after both fugitives fired at a state police helicopter overhead and at several redbone hounds that had been tracking them. The other fugitive was not captured.

      At least three of the hounds were shot by the fugitives. One was killed, two were expected to survive, and a fourth was missing late tonight, the authorities said.

      In Dallas today, a 25-count Federal indictment was unsealed against the group’s leader, Richard L. McLaren, on charges related to phony Republic of Texas checks.

  9. The author got wise – he “fought for nothing”…
    Imagine general Patton – he “fought the wrong enemy”….
    What’s the moral –
    Be careful who and what you fight about…
    Most people won’t fight at all..
    Most don’t want to know, and can you blame them?

  10. I remember GWB saying those militias were “illegal”.. that from a guy who was appointed president by the supreme court…
    He’s probably right, they probably are “illegal”…
    but we know what that means…
    I see no militia activity where I live in California…
    It was all stamped out pretty well under Bush and Cheney in the USA.
    Of course nobody really put up the kind of fight it would take.. the average American hasn’t been driven nearly that far yet… probably never will be..
    There was a chance for a wave from the alternative media but a couple more years of Google working on censorship and that’s probably all over too..
    Trump turns out not good enough…
    He was a slim shot anyway..
    Gun ownership is the one issue that might trip them up, if they tried to push it too far too fast… most likely they’ll keep chipping…
    AOC green new deal going nowhere, except it fractures the dems… this happening at the same time Muslim migrants mouthing off on Zionism from the Congress now… interesting, but is it hopeful it might lead to the Jews losing control…
    Seems a long shot but anti Zionism sentiment getting deeper all the time out there…

    1. Bark –

      “It was all stamped out pretty well under Bush and Cheney in the USA.”

      Most were destroyed before Bush & Cheney. It was mostly done under Clinton.

      I followed all of those groups closely. I spoke to Randy Weaver face to face on several occasions. He told me he had to take the money, $1Million, or his daughters would be in danger, even set up & killed. He established a trust for them, and they got to live in peace.

      I also spoke with Bo Gritz & Jack McLamb in person and on the phone many dozens of times over the years, especially after Waco & Ruby Ridge. Finally learning they were whipped by the ‘justice boys’, they set up a city which was a refuge for ‘constitutionists’ in Idaho. They called it Almost Heaven – located near Kamiah, Idaho. They had to remove themselves from society. They became isolated prisoners. Prisoners in their own social and physical construction. —– That’s not fore me!

      IT FAILED…. “BIGGLY” – even with the most decorated Green Beret officer in history as the leader.

      Almost Heaven started in the early 1990s with just under 1,000 acres on the rim of the plateau overlooking the Clearwater River. Gritz, a former military man who describes himself as the inspiration for “Rambo,” envisioned a place where like-minded constitutionalists could live, free from excessive government control and safe from crime and other dangers.

      Residents of Almost Heaven would simply have to agree to the community covenant, which required that they be God-fearing Christians who would stand and fight with one another should any resident’s constitutional rights be threatened.

      “When you’re fishing and everything is running smooth, when you make a great cast, sure as hell when you reel in your line there’s a knot. These guys were a constant irritant,” said Gritz, who no longer lives in Almost Heaven. “There were about six individuals who were looking for Armageddon, and if it didn’t come, they were going to cause it.”

      Some residents filed documents with the Idaho County Courthouse, renouncing their U.S. citizenship and claiming to be “sovereigns” of the “Idaho State Republic.”

      Others started a militia group called the Idaho Mountain Boys. The group was later accused of plotting to kill U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge, and member and former Almost Home resident Larry Raugust eventually pleaded guilty to 15 counts of making bombs. He was accused of planting land mines around the foreclosed property of a friend near Almost Heaven. Two other militia members were convicted of a 1999 plot to blow up a propane tank farm near Sacramento, Calif.


      SPLC knows & follows ALL of the groups TODAY:

      The antigovernment “Patriot” world has lost one of its most ardent conspiracy theorists.

      Gerald “Jack” McLamb, 69, a military veteran, retired Phoenix police officer and longtime promulgator of Patriot conspiracy theories, died on Saturday (Jan 2014), according to a post at Republic Broadcasting, where he hosted a radio show. An earlier post noted that McLamb collapsed on Jan. 9 at his home in Indiana and was placed on life support. He had numerous “physical disabilities,” noted one of the announcements, though what those were or whether they contributed to his death is unknown.



    It is intentions that determine the morality of actions, not their material consequences, according to Christian thinking.

    This reformed “Christian” version of morality is the greatest lie on Earth.

    Putting “feelings”/”intentions” ahead of consequences, absolving “sin” by blathering in a booth, blaming feelings for one’s situation ( psychoanalysis) is the principle reason we are in the mess we are in.

    1. Flan –


      Kenrda claimed to have had a sex change operation. ‘IT’ would be eligible to be part of the the “Good Fellas” or ‘The Outfit’ in Chicago. They all murder during the week and confess on Sunday. That action is OK or them…. and Kendra.

      Communists know… graveyards are very peaceful. “BIGGLY!!” So, in the name of promoting peace… it is OK to kill…. even millions at a time.

    2. @Flan O’Brien
      Feelings are one thing, intention is another. Intention is in the will and involves free choice, feelings are emotions. We will be judged by God according to out intention, not our feelings, which are not always under our control or free choice. As for “blathering in a booth,” Christ gave His apostles and their successors the power to forgive sins in His name when they are confessed sincerely and with a firm resolve to amend, with the help of God’s grace. (John 20: 22-23) Even the 12 step programs have come to see the liberating and healing effects of “admitting to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.” As for Psychoanalysis, it is a bogus and pernicious jewish pseudo-science. See Degenerate Moderns by E Michael jones, or some of his videos on youtube.

      1. And you do believe the jewish myth of ‘ christianity’’?I think ‘ we’ the goyim need something to believe in even if ‘ christanity’ is a jewish invention. The human mind can’t live without a filled void even if it is a myth. I can live with that ‘ compromise’. but the smart ones know it is just a jewish fabrication, dialectic judaism- christianity, capitalism- communism etc etc

  12. “Communists know… graveyards are very peaceful. “BIGGLY!!” So, in the name of promoting peace… it is OK to kill…. even millions at a time.”
    too bad the end still justifies the means..
    when the means are the end, we’ll be over it…
    is it even possible to get to that point working with competitive capitalism?
    or is it a trap forever?
    you know what the gunnery sergeant said – “it’s always a trap, the question is for who”?

    1. There’s a question I like to pose to those who start to moralise when discussing ideologies: “Who has killed more people: Nazis/Fascists, Communists/Socialists, or Democrats/Liberals?”. Nobody has tried to answer it and I wonder why. It just seems to shut many up – I suppose they have to do their mental arithmetic and then don’t wish to blurt out the answer as it may come as a surprise.


    And where is the anti-war protest movement such as the one against the war in Vietnam these days? Nothing similar was seen during US wars on Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya. These youngsters are always blaming the boomer generation for their current problems but why don’t they mount an anti-war movement to rival, or surpass, the one during the Vietnam war?

    1. CM –

      “why don’t they mount an anti-war movement to rival, or surpass, the one during the Vietnam war?”

      WHY??? Because there is NO DRAFT to catch them & toss them into the grinders, like in the 1960s!!

      Their ‘wimped-out’ movement is done on Facebook & other social media. 🙂

      1. PAT,

        Yes I know, out of pure selfishness and self-interest, not out of altruism or humanitarianism. Now if only they were so selfish and self-interested not to go and fight and die for Israel and the Jews. But OK, the US Army is now just a mercenary army, and you probably don’t even have to be a US citizen to join up. And the Russian army too is apparently open to foreigners these days.

    2. It would be a quite interesting exercise to find out what they are doing today, now that their prime backer, the Soviet Union, does not exist anymore. I would not be suprised if quite a few of them (in the case of the USA) sit in well-paid professoral chairs and preach liberalism to their students. Perhaps most of them today vote for the Democrats (guesswork). I am not so fit in US politics (I have not lived there) but I reason that certain South African trends will also hold true for the USA.

      Those that agitated in South Africa today write their memoirs and brag about their limpet mines and weapons smuggling, used to blow up civilians of all race groups, with the blacks being the biggest victims. They brag brazenly and openly on the web, and no police inspector ever investigates them for murder. Some of them have found a new job in Hellen Zilles (look up her background!) DA party.



      1. One of the leaders of the anti Vietnam war protest movement, Jerry Rubin, even became a Wall Street stockbroker. Another similar one in Europe, Daniel Cohn Bendit, became an EU politician, and even supported western military intervention in Bosnia contrary to the policy of his party, the German Greens. Yes, many of those old pacifist protesters have become academics, mainstream politicians, and warmongers.

        I am not familiar with that Hellen Zilles but I briefly glanced at her wikipedia page after you mentioned her. But she can’t be all that bad, I like that she proposed charging those who spread AIDS with murder, and that she was labelled a “xenophobe” for blaming foreigners for drug trafficking in SA, as well as having led campaigns against “educational refugees” flocking to the Western Cape and against criminals in politics (LOL) – of course all unsuccessful. I don’t think you’ll find former anti-Apartheid activist turned politicians in the West being so controversial.

  14. Yeah blah blah blah, soldier boy.

    You were a mercenary for the kikes and it would seem that you still haven’t really figured it out.

    Name the jew, bud and then you can atone for your ‘sins’ and we can call you courageous.
