WHO RULES AMERICA?
When President Reagan nominated me as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy, he told me that we had to restore the US economy, to rescue it from stagflation, in order to bring the full weight of a powerful economy to bear on the Soviet leadership in order to convince them to negotiate the end of the cold war. Reagan said that there was no reason to live any longer under the threat of nuclear war.
The Reagan administration achieved both goals, only to see these accomplishments discarded by successor administrations. It was Reagan’s own vice president and successor, George Herbert Walker Bush, who first violated the Reagan-Gorbachev understandings by incorporating former constituent parts of the Soviet Empire into NATO and taking Western military bases to the Russian frontier.
The process of surrounding Russia with military bases continued unabated through successor US administrations with various “color revolutions” financed by the US National Endowment for Democracy, regarded by many as a front for the CIA. Washington even attempted to install a Washington-controlled government in Ukraine and did succeed in this effort in former Soviet Georgia, the birthplace of Joseph Stalin. The President of Georgia, a country located between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, is a Washington puppet. Recently, he announced that former Soviet Georgia is on schedule to become a NATO member in 2014.
Those old enough to remember know that NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, was an alliance between Western Europe and the US against the threat of the Red Army overrunning Western Europe. The North Atlantic is a long, long ways from the Black and Caspian Seas. What is the purpose of Georgia being a NATO member except to give Washington a military base on the Russian underbelly?
The evidence is simply overwhelming that Washington—both parties—have Russia and China targeted. Whether the purpose is to destroy both countries or merely to render them unable to oppose Washington’s world hegemony is unclear at this time. Regardless of the purpose, nuclear war is the likely outcome.
ARMAGEDDON APPROACHES . . .
The presstitute American press pretends that an evil Syrian government is murdering innocent citizens who only want democracy and that if the UN won’t intervene militarily, the US must in order to save human rights. Russia and China are vilified by US functionaries for opposing any pretext for a NATO invasion of Syria.
The facts, of course, are different from those presented by the presstitute American media and members of the US government. The Syrian “rebels” are well armed with military weapons. The “rebels” are battling the Syrian army. The rebels massacre civilians and report to their media whores in the West that the deed was done by the Syrian government, and the Western presstitutes spread the propaganda.
Someone is arming the “rebels” as obviously the weapons can’t be purchased in local Syrian markets. Most intelligent people believe the weapons are coming from the US or from US surrogates.
“DIVIDE ET IMPERA” — DIVIDE AND RULE
The object is to fragment Syria into petty sectarian statelets forever at each others’ throats. Ideally, this will be accomplished by a war that will do for Syria what has already been done so spectacularly for Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, i.e., destroy their infrastructures and leave them in ruins. When Syria is destroyed and more of its land annexed to Israel, adding to the territory already stolen in the water-rich Golan Heights, the next step will be the fragmentation of Iran and the plunder of its oil and gas resources. Iran is the big one. Syria is the small one on the way to Iran. As the neoconservative chickenhawks in Washington keep saying: “Real men go to Tehran!” (LD)
(For more on Israel’s role in the Syrian situation, see ‘Israel, Master of Puppets in Syria Unrest.’)
So, Washington has started a civil war in Syria, as it did in Libya, but this time the gullible Russians and Chinese have caught on and have refused to permit a UN resolution like the one the West exploited against Gaddafi.
To get around this roadblock, fish out an ancient Phantom fighter jet from the 1960s Vietnam war era and have Turkey fly it into Syria. The Syrians will shoot it down, and then Turkey can appeal to its NATO allies to come to its aid against Syria. Denied the UN option, Washington can invoke its obligation under the NATO treaty, and go to war in defense of a NATO member against a demonized Syria.
What was that Turkish plane doing sniffing around Syrian airspace? — It was begging to be shot down! So that Turkey could give NATO its casus belli, its pretext for an all-out attack on Syria in violation of international law. The warmongers in Washington have only one way of making a living nowadays — and that is by selling arms to war-torn countries and then systematically looting their resources. (LD)
The neoconservative lie behind Washington’s wars of hegemony is that the US is bringing democracy to the invaded and bombed countries. To paraphrase Mao, “democracy comes out of the barrel of a gun.” However, the Arab Spring has come up short on democracy, as have Iraq and Afghanistan, two countries “liberated” by US democratic invasions.
What the US is bringing is civil wars and the breakup of countries, as President Bill Clinton’s regime achieved in former Yugoslavia. The more countries can be torn into pieces and dissolved into rival factions, the more powerful is Washington.
Russia’s Putin understands that Russia itself is threatened not only by Washington’s funding of the “Russian opposition,” but also by the strife among Muslims unleashed by Washington’s wars against secular Muslim states, such as Iraq and Syria. This discord spreads into Russia itself and presents Russia with problems such as Chechen terrorism.
When a secular state is overthrown, the Islamist factions become free to be at one another’s throats. The internal strife renders the countries impotent. As I wrote previously, the West always prevails in the Middle East because the Islamist factions hate one another more than they hate their Western conquerors. Thus, when Washington destroys secular, non-Islamist governments as in Iraq and now targeted in Syria, the Islamists emerge and battle one another for supremacy. This suits Washington and Israel as these states cease to be coherent opponents.
The Russians are only too aware that the projected wars against Iran and Syria are proxy wars against them. The Chinese know that they, too, are being covertly targeted by these attacks on their Iranian and Syrian allies. Russia and China therefore have a stark choice: either to intervene and stop the planned destruction of Iran and Syria by the US, Israel and their camp followers in NATO and the Muslim world — or else be next on the hit list. (LD)
Russia is vulnerable, because Putin is demonized by Washington and the US media and because Putin’s Russian opposition is financed by Washington and serves US, not Russian, interests. The turmoil that Washington is unleashing in Muslim states leaks back to Russia’s Muslim populations.
It has proved to be more difficult for Washington to interfere in China’s internal affairs, although discord has been sowed in some provinces. Several years from now, the Chinese economy is expected to exceed in size the US economy, with an Asian power displacing a Western one as the world’s most powerful economy.
Washington is deeply disturbed by this prospect. In the thrall and under the control of Wall Street and other special interest business groups, Washington is unable to rescue the US economy from its decline. The short-run gambling profits of Wall Street, the war profits of the military/security complex, and the profits from offshoring the production of goods and services for US markets have far more representation in Washington than the wellbeing of US citizens. As the US economy sinks, the Chinese economy rises.
Washington’s response is to militarize the Pacific. The US Secretary of State has declared the South China Sea to be an area of American national interest. The US is wooing the Philippine government, playing the China threat card, and working on getting the US Navy invited back to its former base at Subic Bay. Recently there were joint US/Philippines military/naval exercises against the “China threat.”
AMERICA believes it has a right to establish bases all over the Pacific Ocean, threatening Chinese interests . . . but would America like it if China established Chinese bases all over the Atlantic Ocean, threatening America? (LD)
The US Navy is reallocating fleets to the Pacific Ocean and constructing a new naval base on a South Korean island. US Marines are now based in Australia and are being reallocated from Japan to other Asian countries. The Chinese are not stupid. They understand that Washington is attempting to corral China.
For a country incapable of occupying Iraq after 8 years and incapable of occupying Afghanistan after 11 years, to simultaneously take on two nuclear powers is an act of insanity. The hubris in Washington, fed daily by the crazed neocons, despite extraordinary failure in Iraq and Afghanistan, has now targeted formidable powers—Russia and China. The world has never in its entire history witnessed such idiocy. The psychopaths, sociopaths, and morons who prevail in Washington are leading the world to destruction.
The criminally insane government in Washington, regardless whether Democrat or Republican, regardless of the outcome of the next election, is the greatest threat to life on earth that has ever existed.
AMERICA, YOU WILL DO AS I SAY!
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the REAL President of America — the man who runs the American Madhouse with the help of AIPAC and America’ s Zionist organizations . . .
Edited extracts from this article by Justin Raimondo,

“There is no freedom, no democracy, and no government accountability in Amerika, a fascist state.” — Paul Craig Roberts
Hitler and Stalin, move over!
Your respective countries
are about to be eclipsed by
a new emerging dictatorship.
STEP FORWARD, AMERICA!
In a revealing series of interviews on Amy Goodman’s “Democracy Now” program, three individuals targeted by the American surveillance state — William Binney, former top NSA official, Jacob Applebaum, an internet security specialist who works with WikiLeaks, and Laura Poitras, an Oscar-nominated documentary film-maker whose work has brought her to the attention of US authorities and led to her harassment by US government agents — give compelling evidence that America is no longer a free country.
Binney resigned his position with the National Security Agency (NSA) after 40 years in protest at the government’s increasingly totalitarian methods of data-collection and retention, without judicial oversight. The government has targeted him: in 2007, his home was invaded by FBI agents after he went to the Senate Intelligence Committee with revelations about illegal NSA spying on American citizens: they pointed guns at him, and warned that he would “not do well” in prison.
Applebaum and Poitras have been detained, searched, and interrogated every time they have re-entered the US from abroad — Poitras over 40 times — and had their laptops seized and presumably copied.
None of these individuals have been charged with a crime.
The degree to which our constitutionally-protected liberties have been usurped is shockingly described by Binney:
AMY GOODMAN: Do you believe all emails, the government has copies of, in the United States?
WILLIAM BINNEY: I would think — I believe they have most of them, yes.
GOODMAN: And you’re speaking from a position where you would know, considering your position in the National Security Agency.
BINNEY: Right. All they would have to do is put various Narus devices at various points along the network, at choke points or convergent points, where the network converges, and they could basically take down and have copies of most everything on the network.
While this level of surveillance started during the Bush administration, under President Obama, Binney says:
The surveillance has increased. In fact, I would suggest that they’ve assembled on the order of 20 trillion transactions about U.S. citizens with other U.S. citizens.
AMY GOODMAN: How many?
WILLIAM BINNEY: Twenty trillion.
What are they doing with all those emails? They’re targeting their enemies, domestic as well as foreign, and combining this information with “meta-data” — i.e., financial records, credit card transactions — to create comprehensive profiles of those on their enemies list.
There’s nothing to stop them from “leaking” this information to anyone, for any purpose — because it all takes place in the dark. And if they want to find something on you, they will find it and use it.
This, in short, is what it means to live in a police state.
Glenn Greenwald wrote about this in a recent column, and he said something very important that we should all focus on:
So just look at what happens to people in the U.S. if they challenge government actions in any meaningful way — if they engage in any meaningful dissent. We love to tell ourselves that there are robust political freedoms and a thriving free political press in the U.S. because you’re allowed to have an MSNBC show or blog in order to proclaim every day how awesome and magnanimous the President of the United States is and how terrible his GOP political adversaries are — how brave, cutting and edgy! — or to go on Fox News and do the opposite. But people who are engaged in actual dissent, outside the tiny and narrow permissible boundaries of pom-pom waving for one of the two political parties — those who are focused on the truly significant acts which the government and its owners are doing in secret — are subjected to this type of intimidation, threats, surveillance, and climate of fear, all without a whiff of illegal conduct.
AMERICA’S “FIRST JEWISH PRESIDENT”
A controversial quote from an article in the Czech Republic newspaper, Prager Zeitungon, has recently been translated into English and is made available here for the first time. This quote says it all:
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their President.”
With Fox News and MSNBC braying at one another, and the airwaves filled with corporate-funded political ads detailing the dirt on this or that candidate, the illusion of liberality persists. Yet all one has to do is challenge the “national security” prerogatives of an ever-expanding American empire — as Binney, Applebaum, and Poitras did — and suddenly one is transported into the world of It Can’t Happen Here, Sinclair Lewis’s masterful evocation of what a distinctively American dictatorship might look like, Orwell’s 1984, or some other dystopian vision of a totalitarian future.
BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU!
“The commitment to civil liberties ended suddenly on September 11, 2001. In eleven years the Bush/Obama Regime repealed 800 years of human achievements that established law as a shield of the people.Today Americans and citizens of other countries can be confined to torture dungeons for the duration of their lives, or they can be shot down in the streets or exterminated by drone missiles.” — Paul Craig Roberts, How Liberty was Lost
Take Orwell’s classic work which posited a world in a state of perpetual warfare (check!), where constant and universal surveillance is the norm (check!), where “thoughtcrime” is ruthlessly punished, and where most ordinary people (the “proles”) are basically left alone, with totalitarian methods of repression directed almost exclusively against rebellious elites (check!)
With the left co-opted, and the right pushing for an even more draconian crackdown on what is left of our constitutionally-protected rights, we are left with only Ron Paul holding up a copy of the Constitution and demanding its restoration.
Unfortunately, even that voice will be stilled.
What this means is that the authoritarian trend in American politics will continue, unabated and unopposed.
“Once Washington confirmed that the American public was both too ignorant and too inattentive to pay any attention to events that would alter their lives and jeopardize their existence, every thing else followed: the PATRIOT Act, the suspension of the Constitution and destruction of civil liberty. Homeland Security has quickly extended its gestapo reach from airports to train stations, bus terminals and highway road blocks. It has criminalized dissent, equating critics of the government with supporters of terrorism. It has mandated the home invasions of antiwar protesters and their arraignment before a grand jury. It has prosecuted whistleblowers who reveal government crimes. And the list goes on and on.”
“You are with us or against us” is taking on threatening instead of reassuring connotations, implying that anyone who opens his or her mouth in any dissent is thereby transformed into an “enemy of the state.”
— Paul Craig Roberts, here. (Edited)
In this context, it is appropriate to recall the warning of John T. Flynn, former New Dealer-turned-constitutionalist, a financial writer purged from The New Republic and polite liberal society for his vocal opposition to the policies of Franklin Delano Roosevelt:
Fascism will come at the hands of perfectly authentic Americans…who wish to commit this country to the rule of the bureaucratic state; interfering in the affairs of the states and cities; taking part in the management of industry and finance and agriculture; assuming the role of great national banker and investor, borrowing millions every year and spending them on all sorts of projects through which such a government can paralyze opposition and command public support; marshaling great armies and navies at crushing costs to support the industry of war and preparation for war which will become our greatest industry … all to be done under the authority of a powerfully centralized government in which the executive will hold in effect all the powers, with Congress reduced to the role of a debating society.
There is your fascist state!
And the sooner America realizes this dreadful fact the sooner it will arm itself to make an end of American fascism masquerading under the guise of the champion of democracy.
They are not disturbed: because they know that they will never burn books, and they will never hound the Jews or the Negroes.
What will turn up in their hands will be a very genteel and dainty and pleasant form of fascism which cannot be called fascism at all because it will be so virtuous and polite.
Those words were published in 1944, and they are truer today than on the day they appeared in print.
. . . a very genteel and dainty and pleasant form of fascism . . .
. . . which cannot be called fascism at all
because it will be so virtuous and polite . . .
Les Visible’s “In Search of Rest” (10 mins)
Read by Patrick Willis
Les Visible is a gifted poet, musician, recording artist and controversial political commentator. He has maintained a lifelong love affair with the hermetic sciences, the martial arts, and mysticism. A collection of his works in various media can be found
Les Visible’s mystical poem “In Search of Rest”, recited here superbly by performance artist Patrick Willis, has been described by Lasha Darkmoon as “a priceless gem of beatitude, a work of pure genius that grows on you the more you listen to it.”

“If you come down from the cross, we will accept you as our Messiah.” — The Jewish high priests Annas and Caiphas to Jesus
If what is left of the WASP establishment wants to do something effective in the culture wars, they will have to understand just who the enemy is.
In order to understand this, they will have to go back well beyond the 1960s. In fact, they will have to go back beyond the 18th century: to be precise, 1800 years before that, right back to the opening shot in the culture wars.
This war began 2000 years ago at the foot of the cross, when the Jewish high priests, Annas and Caiphas, said to Jesus Christ, “If you come down from the cross, we will accept you as our Messiah.”
Needless to say, Jesus did not come down from the cross. And because he didn’t, the Jews rejected Him. Instead, they chose Barabbas, a bandit who had been condemned to death for his revolutionary activities.
At once, by doing this—by preferring a notorious criminal to a man of spotless innocence who had come to redeem them—the Jews became revolutionaries themselves: condemned to seek heaven on earth by following one false Messiah after another from Simon bar Kokhbar to Shabbetai Zevi, from Alex Portnoy to Paul Wolfowitz.
As my friend Sam Francis used to say, Who is the real enemy?
To answer that question, we need to turn first to Professor Kevin MacDonald’s analysis of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored Peoples (NAACP), the premier organization of the Jewish-Black alliance.
Kevin MacDonald, America’s premier racial theorist, says pretty much the same thing as Benjamin Ginsberg in an article on the Jewish-Black alliance which appeared in Race and the American Prospect, the book my friend Sam Francis was editing before he died:
The record [MacDonald writes] shows quite clearly that Jewish organizations as well as a great number of individual Jews contributed enormously to the success of the movement to increase the power of blacks and alter the racial hierarchy of the United States. (p. 221).
Jews have played a prominent role in organizing blacks beginning with the founding of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909. The NAACP was founded by wealthy German Jews, non-Jewish whites and blacks led by W.E.B. Dubois. The Jewish role was predominant.
By mid-decade, the NAACP had something of the aspect of an adjunct of B’nai B’rith and the American Jewish Committee. . . . By 1920, Herbert Seligman was director of public relations and Martha Greuning served as his assistant. . . . Small wonder that a bewildered [Black Nationalist leader] Marcus Garvey stormed out of NAACP headquarters in 1917 muttering that it was a white organization.
The NAACP, in other words, purportedly a black organization for the advancement of black civil rights, was in fact a Jewish organization.
It was a Jewish organization that mobilized America’s blacks to fight racial discrimination insofar as this was congruent with Jewish goals. Benjamin Ginsberg is remarkably frank in discussing the terms of the Jewish-Black alliance:
By speaking on behalf of blacks as well as Jews . . . Jewish groups were able to present themselves as fighting for the abstract and quintessential American principles of fair play and equal justice rather than the selfish interests of Jews alone. This would not be the last time that Jewish organizations found that helping blacks could serve their own interests as well.
[LASHA DARKMOON SAYS: A valued correspondent, Dick Chardet, has this morning sent me the following extremely apt 1912 quotation by ISRAEL COHEN which reinforces all the points made above. At his request, I add the quote here:
We must realize that our party’s most powerful weapon is racial tensions. We will aid the Negroes to rise in prominence in every walk of life, in the professions and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and begin a process which will deliver America to our cause.
— Israel Cohen, ”A Racial Program for the Twentieth Century”, 1912.
Also in the Congressional Record, Vol. 103, p. 8559, June 7, 1957]
It turns out, then, that there is much more to this Black/Jewish alliance than that of simply fighting discrimination.
By allying themselves with the blacks, the Jews found that they could covertly attack the people they perceived as their main political enemies and weaken if not destroy their political influence, i.e., the power and cultural values of the WASPs—an ethos based on 2000 years of Christianity.
And so the real enemy, it turns out, was the old enemy who has dogged our footsteps for the last 2000 years: The Revolutionary Jew
* * *
The Revolutionary Jew, it must be emphasized, is not our enemy because of some occult racial inheritance. The Revolutionary Jew is our enemy because he has rejected Logos. This means that Jews, to the extent that they honor and revere Logos, are not our enemies.
Note. “Logos” may be defined as the Christ Principle, or the rule of law in a divinely ordered universe. Thus the Logos would seem to be an intrinsic feature of all the great world religions with the notable exception of Judaism—especially in its bizarre Talmudic manifestation. (LD)
There are Jews who accept Logos fully by sincerely accepting baptism, and there are Jews who accept it in some lesser capacity by their docility to the truth. We all know Jews like this, and they should not be excluded from our fellowship, especially since many of them have suffered at the hands of “the Jews” themselves.
As the Gospel of St. John makes clear, the Jews became “the Jews” the minute they rejected Christ. As such, their only identity is negative. The minute they rejected Logos, which means reason, order, speech, and word, they became revolutionaries, determined enemies not only of Christ and the Christian social order, but any order in any society not of their own revolutionary making.
Thirty years after rejecting Christ, the Revolutionary Jew rose in rebellion against Rome. Seventy years later they united under Simon bar Kokhbar, one of their many messiahs, and tried the same thing again. Having failed to destroy Rome, they attempted to destroy the Europe which St. Benedict created out of the ruins of the Roman Empire and to replace it with one of their many deadly Utopias.
What does Jerusalem under Simon bar Kokhbar—what does the Soviet Union under Trotsky, Zinoviev, Kamanev, and Radek—what does the short lived Soviet Republic of Bavaria under Kurt Eisner and Eugene Levine—what does Hungary under Bela Kun—what does the racial apartheid state known as Israel under terrorists like Menachem Begin or Itzhak Shamir—what does the neocon Never-Never Land known as the “free and democratic Iraq”—what do all these miserable abortions have in common?
Death is what they have in common!
Lots of people have to die to bring about the Revolutionary Jew’s version of heaven on earth.
Key figures in the Bolshevik Revolution (1917), and the subsequent Soviet Union of the Stalinist era, which claimed the lives (according to Solzhenitsyn) of 66 million Russian Christians between 1917-1953.
“With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders.” — WINSTON CHURCHILL.
(Note. Churchill was unaware that even Lenin was partly Jewish).
* * *
The West which we seek to preserve is based on docility to Logos, the order of the universe which makes discourse possible. The essence of Jewish Messianic politics which seeks to create heaven on earth, is rejection of Logos. It has nothing to do with DNA.
The essence of this Jewish rejection of Logos is found and known in the Talmud, which is anti-Logos in every sense of the word, from hatred of Christ all the way down to rejection of the practical logos known as morality.
We saw a good example of Talmudic thought in action during the Israeli invasion of Lebanon (2006) when Charles Krauthammer and the Jewish rabbinic council attacked the Just War theory—in particular its ban on killing noncombatants and the principle of proportionality. This was apparently a “Christian” ideal and therefore non-applicable to Jews.
Christians, if they choose, may spare the lives of civilians and kill their enemies in a restrained manner—“proportionality”—but there is no obligation on Jews to copy the compassionate Christians.
Charles Krauthammer, torture advocate, argues in the Weekly Standard (December 5, 2005) that it is not only permissible to hang a suspect up by his thumbs to extract information from him, but that it is a “moral duty” to do so, provided Israel’s security and the lives of a million imaginary people are at stake. Alan Dershowitz, Harvard law professor and torture expert, would have approved. He suggests it might be a good idea to torture suspects, even the innocent ones, by sticking needles under their fingernails.
The principles of the Just War theory are of course the basic principles of civilized conduct, the bedrock of human decency. Those who refuse to abide by these basic rules are barbarians and deserved to be treated as such. No country can implement Talmudic thought—as America has—and not suffer the catastrophic consequences of Logos rejection: that is to say, the rejection of reason, human rights, and the fundamental ethical principles that are inseparable from civilized behavior.
In France, in 1890, in the wake of the one hundredth anniversary of the French Revolution, the Jesuits who wrote for Civilta Cattolica explained how widespread rejection of Logos, in the form of the French Revolution, led to bondage: in particular, bondage to Jews.
The same thing is true of our country in the wake of the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s. We swallowed the bait of sexual liberation and ended up being enslaved by our enemies.
Lest anyone misunderstand me, I am saying that the Jews are our enemy insofar as we are partisans of Logos and they are not. They are the enemies of Logos, because their religion is based on hatred of Logos. And nothing makes this clearer than the Jews’ “holiest” book, the Talmud, a compendium of the most diabolical principles ever conceived by the mind of man.
Opening the Talmud at random, here are a dozen pearls of wisdom the impressionable young student is likely to encounter: (1) “It is permitted for Jews to cheat Gentiles. All lies are good.” (2) “If a Jew has stolen something from a Gentile and the Gentile discovers it and demands it back, the Jew should simply deny it all. The Jewish court will stand by the Jew.” (3) “A Jew need not pay a gentile the wages owed him for work.” (4) “When a Jew murders a gentile, there will be no death penalty. What a Jew steals from a gentile he may keep.” (5) “Gentile girls are in a state of niddah (filth) from birth. Gentiles prefer sex with cows.” (6) “Adam had sexual intercourse with all the animals in the Garden of Eden.” (7) “A Jew may have sex with a child as long as the child is less than nine years old … When a grown-up man has intercourse with a litte girl it is nothing.” (8) “A Gentile girl who is three years old can be violated … A Jew may violate but not marry a non-Jewish girl.” (9) “A Jewish man is obligated to say the following prayer every day: Thank you God for not making me a gentile, a woman or a slave.” (10) “When the Messiah comes, every Jew will have 2800 slaves.” (11) “Jesus is in hell, being boiled in hot excrement.” (12) “If a Jew is tempted to do evil, he should go to a city where he is not known and do the evil there.”
(For all these quotes and more, see Elizabeth Dilling’s The Jewish Religion: Its Influence Today. (Formerly titled “The Plot Against Christianity”). See also Michael Hoffman’s monumental 1100-page Judaism Discovered: A Study of the Anti-Biblical Religion of Racism, Self-Worship, Superstition and Deceit.)
Lytton Strachey and his friends once referred to the subversive movement we call Bloomsbury as the “higher sodomy.” Taking a page from his book, I will refer to Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular as the “higher Logos.”
Those of us who follow the higher Logos know, however, that the only proper response we can make to our enemies is to love them, and the clearest manifestation of that love is our desire to bring them to the Truth, otherwise known as the Logos.
We should therefore work for their conversion to the Higher Logos.
* * *
At this point, it should be obvious that I am not just talking about Jews as the enemies of Logos. I am also talking about Christians who want to live and act like Jews. And lest this statement of mine be distorted and presented as evidence of my “anti-Semitism”, let me add that I firmly believe that there are many Jews who are better Christians than quite a few Christians are!
The Puritans spring immediately to mind as “bad Christians”, thanks to the toxic Judaizing influence they had on America from the moment of its birth.
I am also thinking of the many non-Jewish character assassins and apologists for usury, pornography and other Jewish forms of social control. Their name is Legion. They earn their money by poisoning the public mind.
I am thinking of the likes of Alfred Kinsey, a nominal Christian, who to my mind was a far more evil influence than Sigmund Freud, an atheist Jew. (See “The Case Against Kinsey”, here).
I repeat: the revolutionary Jew is our enemy because he is a rejecter of Logos, not because of his DNA.
We are not anti-Semites because we oppose the machinations of the Revolutionary Jew. No, we are true Christians because of that, as the Church from the time of St. Peter onward has proclaimed.
Like St. Peter and St. Paul, we are suffering at the hands of the Jews, “the people who put the Lord Jesus to death, and the prophets too. And now they have been persecuting us, and acting in a way that cannot please God and makes them the enemies of the whole human race” (1 Thess 1: 15).
We are now engaged in a war which has ebbed and flowed over the centuries, but the sides in this war have not changed. What has changed are the odds. The Jews have never been stronger. The Christians, specifically the Catholics, have never been weaker.
The outcome of this particular war however—and the war for the soul of the West, as Tolkien knew, is a spiritual war—is rarely predictable, no matter what the odds are.
If St. Paul, representing the Christian position, has to say, “When I am weak, I am strong,” (2 Corinthians 12:10) then the Revolutionary Jew, representing the opposite polarity, has to say, “When I am strong, I am weak.”
We are outgunned on every front in the culture wars, but that is no reason for despair.
If we follow the Logos that St. Paul followed, who was outgunned by the Jews too, outgunned but not undone, we can say with St Paul: “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down but not destroyed.” (2 Corinthians 4:8)
And so, as Theoden said, “We come to it in the end, the great battle of our time, in which many things will pass away. But at least there is no longer need for hiding.” (See Lord of the Rings, here.)
Nor, we might add, is there any place to hide.
Many of us are have already had our careers destroyed by the Revolutionary Jew and his goyische front men. The Jews spy on us through our computers. They suborn fellow Christians to betray us, get us fired, prevent us from speaking out.
Our backs are to the wall. We have never been weaker. And our enemies have never been stronger. But that is no reason for despair, because as Elrond says, “this quest may be attempted by the weak with as much hope as the strong.” And why is that? Because “such is the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.” (See Lord of the Rings, here.)
We have no common past. We have no royal family waiting in the wings. We have no established religion which can act as a source of order and identity. We have no racial identity. We have no common DNA. I am almost tempted to say that we have no We. We are a nation of nations, and that is all we have ever been.
All we have is various ethnic traditions and communities, united by the frail bonds of Logos, as perceived by the human soul beset by human passions.
If our souls are weak, remember that Logos is not. Logos is the glue that binds the universe together.
And so it is strong enough to unite us as Americans—whether it be the higher Logos which acknowledges Christ as Lord of the universe, or the lower Logos which honors him by detecting order in the works of creation and beauty in the moral law.
We are the party of Logos, and it is only as such that we can think of surviving.
If we do not survive, how can we hope to prevail over our enemies?
“What does not destroy me, makes me stronger.”— Friedrich Nietzsche
A US Marine Corps veteran and author asserts that Israel masterminded the 9/11 attacks, saying if Americans were informed of this, they would exterminate the Zionist regime.
“I have had long conversations over the past two weeks with contacts at the Army War College, at the Headquarters Marine Corps, and I have made it absolutely clear in both cases that it is 100 percent certain that 9/11 was a Mossad operation. Period,” Alan Sabrosky, writer and consultant specializing in national and international security affairs, said in a clip appearing on the public video-sharing website You Tube.
“It is 100 percent certain that 9/11 was a Mossad operation.” — Dr Alan Sabrosky, former Director of Studies at the US Army War College.
Sabrosky said his colleagues who are still serving in uniform initially react with incredulity to his assertions but upon his explanations regarding the controlled demolition of the buildings their disbelief gives way to rage.
“First is disbelief, and what I show them immediately afterwards is an interview with a Danish demolitions expert named Danny Jowenko, and it shows the third building at the World Trade Center going down – WTC7.”
“The thing that’s necessary is to tell people:
(1) THREE buildings went down.
(2) The third was NOT hit by a plane, it was wired for controlled demolition.
(3) Therefore, ALL of them were wired for controlled demolition.
And at that point the reaction is rage. First disbelief, and then rage,” he added.
Sabrosky said if the Americans were apprised of the truth behind the attacks, they would not hesitate to eliminate Israel without any consideration for the costs involved.
“If Americans ever know that Israel did this, they are going to scrub them off the earth,” he said.
On September 11, 2001, a series of coordinated attacks were carried out in the United States, reportedly leaving nearly 3,000 people dead.
The US government claimed that 19 terrorists, allegedly affiliated with the shadowy, Afghanistan-based al-Qaeda group, had hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners to carry out the attacks.
The official US account of the September 11 events has, however, been widely challenged by various quarters in the US and worldwide.
The US, under the administration of former President Bush, invaded Afghanistan in 2001 after claiming that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by the members of al-Qaeda harbored by the then Taliban regime in Afghanistan.
The US also attacked Iraq in 2003, insisting that the oil-rich country was in possession of weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
In his September 22, 2011 address to the UN General Assembly, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called for an independent international probe into the 9/11 incident, saying the attacks provided the US with a convenient excuse to wage wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
“The Zionists are playing this as truly an all-or-nothing exercise, because if they lose this one, if the American people ever realize what happened, they’re done,” Sabrosky concluded.

Part 2: IRAN NOW BEING ACCUSED OF DOING 9/11 BY SAME ZIONISTS WHO DID 9/11!
The latest US allegation against Iran, accusing Iran of being involved in the 9/11 incident, is utterly “preposterous,” a respected political analyst tells Press TV.
James Fetzer, founder of Scholars for the 9/11 Truth, questioned the legality of a Thursday ruling by a US federal judge in Manhattan, alleging Iran’s involvement in the terrorist attacks. He described the judicial ruling as “quite preposterous.”
In an extraordinary move, the court also withdrew Saudi Arabia from the ten-year-old case, even though 15 of the 19 September 11 attackers were Saudi nationals.
Fetzer pointed to multiple investigations on the 9/11 incident by independent journalists, including Alan Sabrosky, Christopher Bolyn, Wayne Madsen, as well as other websites exclusively devoted to probe into the issue, insisting all those researches have revealed that “Israel, the MOSSAD, have played a key role in 9/11.”
The political analyst also made reference to the proposal by Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during his address to the UN General Assembly, calling for an independent international probe into the 9/11 incident.
In his September 22 speech, Ahmadinejad said the US government has been involved in the 9/11 attacks or has allowed them to happen to find an excuse to wage wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Fetzer referred to Washington’s massive media campaign to put the blame of 9/11 on al-Qaeda in the wake of Ahmadinejad’s proposal, and questioned, “So who was it — Iran or al-Qaeda?”
On September 11, 2001, a series of coordinated attacks were carried out in the United States, reportedly leaving nearly 3,000 people dead.
The US government claimed that 19 terrorists, allegedly affiliated with the shadowy, Afghanistan-based al-Qaeda group, had hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners to carry out the attacks.

The US then attacked Iraq in 2003, insisting that the oil-rich country was in possession of weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
This turned out to be the first Big Lie of the 21st century.

Part 3: INTERVIEW BETWEEN MARK GLENN and DR ALAN SABROSKY (2010). EDITED AND ABBREVIATED BY LASHA DARKMOON.
MARK GLENN: Alan Sabrosky (Ph.D, University of Michigan) is a ten-year US Marine Corps veteran and a graduate of the US Army War College.
Now, not only that – Dr. Sabrosky correct me if I’m wrong here – not only are you a graduate of the US Army War College, but you were a director of studies there for some period of time – is that correct?
Dr ALAN SABROSKY: That’s correct. For five-and-a-half years.
MARK GLENN (MG): Dr. Sabrosky, I cannot think of an article that I have read in recent memory that basically sums up the problem that we are dealing with right now as accurately and as succinctly as this essay that you have written.
You have, for all intents and purposes, nailed this thing on the head.
I guess the reason why I got so excited over this article, Dr. Sabrosky, is because one of things that I have noted about the problem that we’re dealing with – in terms of Zionism, the power of the Jewish lobby, and what-not – is that everything is shrouded in some type of confusion or mystery, and I think deliberately so. I think one of the biggest components to this powerful foreign interest being able to get as far as it has.
I mean, let’s face it: it got away with attacking a United States ship for close to two hours killing 34 men – this was an act of war, they got away with it.
Not only did they get away with it, they were rewarded with three-billion dollars a year minimum.
When we look at the two wars that the United States finds herself in, and on the cusp of at least two others, and all of this for the benefit of a certain foreign country sitting on the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea – they have been wildly successful at bringing all of this about and I think one of the main components of this is the fact that very few people really understand the nature of the problem – and I think that your article here basically lays out the problem, which is that when you have people that try to make this claim that they are loyal to America and, at the same time, loyal to a foreign government, it is a lie.
ALAN SABROSKY (AS): It is, and it’s more than that, Mark. What we need to stand up and say is that not only did they attack the USS Liberty, they did 9/11. They did it.
I have had long conversations over the past two weeks with contacts at the Army War College, at the Headquarters Marine Corps, and I have made it absolutely clear in both cases that it is 100% certain that 9/11 was a Mossad operation. Period.
9/11 has led directly to 60,000 Americans dead and wounded, God knows how many hundreds of thousands of people in other countries that we’ve killed or wounded or made homeless, and it’s an on-going sore. It’s not your sore from the USS Liberty, it’s not my sore from Vietnam. Both of us have those, both of us care about. But this is an open wound.
And what Americans need to understand is that they did it. They did it. And if they do understand that, Israel’s going to disappear. Israel will flat-ass disappear from this Earth.
I sent a film to one of my colleagues and it basically had Americans grieving over their dead coming back. And I showed one of them — it was a woman — just wrenched by grief over her dead soldier. And I said, you know, if Americans ever know that Israel did this, they’re going to scrub them off the Earth, and they’re not going to give a rat’s ass — forgive my language — what the cost is.
Phil Tourney: Your article needs to be shipped off to the library of congress immediately.
AS: Well, I can tell you it’s being read by some people in Headquarters Marine Corps and at the Army War College. I sent it off to them this past week and I’ve had some long discussions with people up there, and there’s some really, really unhappy people.
MG: What are they saying, Dr. Sabrosky?
AS: Astonishment. The first thing, Mark, is astonishment. They didn’t know. They truly didn’t know. And these are not unintelligent people. They really didn’t know.
And the next statement is rage. Real rage. And the Zionists are playing this as truly an all-or-nothing exercise, because if they lose this one, if the American people ever realize what happened, they’re done.
And if this explodes, I’m going to go down with the rest of them [as a Jew myself]. And I know this. I flat-out know this. But if that was the price for making America whole again….But if that’s the price, then that’s the price I’ll pay. I mean that.
Phil Tourney: You struck me very, very hard just a second ago when you talked about 911. You’re very willing to say that, yeah, they did it: 911. Yes, they did. And, you know, my heart broke.
MG: Just for the record, Dr. Sabrosky, it was about three years ago…and I made a prediction on the air….Someday, maybe a lot sooner than any of us realize, the United States is going to find herself at war with Israel. And I mean a real, live shooting war.
Now, technically speaking, we ARE at war with Israel because she is at war with us. She is out to destroy us. We just haven’t figured that out yet.
My personal prediction is that probably – again, sooner than any of us realize or would like to envision – Israel is going pull off another 9-11. She’s going to pull of another USS Liberty. Obviously, some pretty powerful people in some pretty prominent places, such as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Mike Mullen, believe this is a possibility because he cut short a trip he made to Europe a few years ago to hastily fly to Israel to meet with his counterpart and warn him in no uncertain terms how important it was that there not be another USS Liberty part two.
I think that Israel has been watching all of this and has been saying, “We need to kind of let things cool a little bit for now — if we try to pull another one off right now, then that’s it: we’re going to blow our cover.”
AS: It’s not only a matter of blowing our cover. If Americans ever truly understand that – they’re history. It’ll be a bloody, brutal war – and they’re gone. I mean, it’s not even going to be a close contest. And they know that.
What they understand, I think, as well, is that their leverage is on the political appointments. Their leverage is not in the uniformed services…..the military has not been bought. The military is loyal but it has not been bought….I mentioned to a contact in Headquarters Marine Corps, I said, “You know they did 9/11…” and it was, “You don’t mean it.” I said, “Absolutely”.
And if they ever understand that, these people [the Jews] are history.

Pandora Pushkin comments on the scary situation
Posted by MIKE GILLIAM PIX11.com | @pix11mike
NEW YORK (WPIX)—
The New York Police Department (NYPD) has talked to more than a dozen people with ties to Iran caught photographing New York City landmarks that could be terrorist targets, and that is raising major security concerns.
This is really scary! I am canceling my trip to New York next week!
With coordinated attacks from Thailand to India to Georgia the intelligence community believes the covert war between Israel and Iran is underway and it’s now touching New York.
This is NOT good news! I am utterly spooked. I have a granny who lives in New York City and I’m keeping my fingers crossed, like, she’s gonna be okay. Why are these evil Iranians picking on innocent American citizens who just want to get on with their lives? Why can’t Iran and Israel sit down and settle their problems, like, amicably, without involving peace-loving Americans in their disputes?
The NYPD says it believes Iran has people on the ground covered by diplomatic rights conducting reconnaissance missions and photographing possible targets like landmarks and infrastructure in the City. The fear is that information is going directly to Iran’s Hezbollah faction.
I think all New Yorkers should keep an eye out for these evil Iranians prowling round our streets and, like, “up to no good”, if you know what I mean.
If you happen to see any guys with interesting noses, drawing swastikas on walls, ignore them! They’re the good guys. On our side. They just like drawing swastikas on walls for fun. They’re talented graffiti artists.
“Hezbollah is a threat to this country, a growing threat and it has gone from terrorist financing to being capable of fully operational terrorist activities,” said Republican Representative Peter King of Long Island, the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.
Yeah, Hezbollah is evil. No doubt about that. It’s defending evil Lebanon from the nice Israelis who are only trying to expand their borders a bit by occupying south Lebanon up to the Litani River. Nothing wrong with that, is there? I mean, c’mon! Evil Hitler wanted Lebensraum, if you know what I mean, so why shouldn’t nice Jews help themselves, like, to a bit of extra land in evil Lebanon?!?
After all, the whole Middle East (except for valiant little Israel) is full of Islamofascist terrorists. Brainwashed by the Koran into wanting to conquer the world! Yeah, and they wanna force young women like me to stop wearing miniskirts! Honestly, I’d go crazy if some horrid Muslim forced me to wear a veil and ankle-length dresses! I’d never be able to go into a bar again and, like, pick up a nice guy, know what I mean!?! So banning miniskirts is dead wrong!
Another thing. Have you ever met a Hezbollah terrorist? I have. I met one in Beirut once, on a bus, and I will NEVER forget the way he looked at me! He called me a “Western whore”. And just because I was wearing a miniskirt and a tight low-cut blouse with one shoulder strap, like, hanging loosely off my shoulder, like I wear when I go to that disco in Manhattan!
These guys have no tolerance and lassy-fair. (Spelling?) They smell of garlic! They live with goats! They don’t even use underarm deodorant! And of course they’re extremely, like, anti-feminist. They want to ban makeup, miniskirts, and sex toys. Heck, they don’t even approve of porn!!! So what I say is, our government is right. These guys are dead evil and they should be killed on sight.
The landmarks range from the Brooklyn Bridge to Grand Central Terminal and other infrastructure and an NYPD intelligence official says since 2005, 13 people with connections to the Iranian government have been interviewed for taking pictures in the city. They could have been tourists but the NYPD is being cautious.
I think this presents a really scary picture! People sneaking around doing surveillance and taking pictures of landmarks like the Brooklyn Bridge. All this kinda reminds me of what happened just before 9/11…if you remember. Only on that occasion it was nice Israelis, wasn’t it? Driving round in white vans and doing, like, high fives…as the Twin Towers came crashing down.
Anyone remember what happened to those guys? They beat it right sharpish, didn’t they? Skedaddled pronto. Hopped on a plane to Tel Aviv and became national heroes on Jew TV!?! Well, what I’m saying is…if the cops can let those Jewish guys get away so easily, I really don’t see how they’re gonna catch these sneaky Iranian terrorists in time?!?
Yeah okay, that sounds a bit, like, “unpatriotic”. No point saying bad things about our cops now they’re trained, like, to do their jobs in Israel!
Hey, read this fantastic new article if you have some time: it’s called “The Israelification of American Domestic Security.” Looks like nice Jews from Israel are now running our police forces across the country… helping our cops do surveillance of nasty Americans and taser them good and proper if they, like, misbehave! Frankly, that’s the best news I’ve heard in a long, long time!!!
Why? Well, seems those Jews have a much higher IQ than us dumb Americans do, Jewish average of 115 compared to our national average of only 98, so I’m damn relieved a smarter race is helping to run our police forces! Know what I mean, like?
Hey, don’t get me wrong! I’m not saying, like, our cops are STUPID! No way! I’m just saying they gotta be pretty smart to call in the Jews to run the show! Know what I mean? No? Never mind! (Guess you’re stupid too, like).
The heated battle between Iran and Israel could easily spill over to the streets of New York with it’s very large Jewish population.
Jiminy crickets, why didn’t I think of that? I’ll have to warn all my nice Jewish friends to get out of New York real quick. Heck, it’s safer right now for Jews in Iran!!! Looks like Jews are really HAPPY in Iran — and you can’t even PAY them to GO TO ISRAEL!!!
So that’s one solution if you’re an American Jew who feels threatened by evil Iranian terrorists in New York City: just HOP ON A PLANE TO TEHRAN!!! Yeah, Iranian Jews feel really safe in Iran!!!
In recent days a gunman has killed seven in France including three children and those brutal attacks have lead to the NYPD to ramp up security here according to police commissioner Ray Kelly who said, “We put in additional coverage using our critical response vehicles around synagogues and other Jewish locations you might say in the city.”
I’m glad they shot that evil antisemitic sonofabitch before he was caught and put on trial. The thing with these guys is this: it’s very dangerous, like, to put terrorists on trial. Cos it gives them just what they want: the oxygen of publicity. I mean, you can’t have them getting up there in the dock, in full view of the world, denying their guilt! And denying the Holocaust!!! And spouting a whole bunch of crap from the Protocols! Nosir, that’s just not on!
So what I say is, like: Kill ’em first, like, and DON’T ask questions later…know what I mean?!?
My personal hero Norman Podoretz writes: “Their first priority, as repeatedly and unequivocally announced by their president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is to “wipe Israel off the map”—a feat that could not be accomplished by conventional weapons alone….Israel would be destroyed in a nuclear exchange, but Iran would survive.”
I WANT TO WIPE ISRAEL OFF THE MAP
AND DRIVE ALL THE JEWS INTO THE SEA!
WOW! Israel wiped off the map and all the nice Jews driven into the sea! That would make the FIRST Holocaust look like a kiddie’s picnic!
As a result of these dreadful threats, Norman Podoretz wants to wipe Iran off the map before Iran wipes Israel off the map! That makes sense to me. (See The Case for Bombing Iran.)
Look, they’re now threatening to, like, nuke NEW YORK! That’s even MORE serious than wiping Israel off the map!!! I can no longer visit my granny in Brooklyn or buy bagels at the corner store like I used to do. It’s praying on my mind. Or should that be “preying”? Not quite sure, but “praying” will do, cos I’m praying real hard that Obama gets his finger out and starts nuking Iran RIGHT NOW!
The sooner these guys are wiped off the map, the better.
So far the NYPD says there are no known terror threats.
Whew, thank G-d for that! Yippeeeee! WORLD SAFE AGAIN!!!
PANDORA PUSHKIN is a writer of satirical spoofs and claims to have an average American IQ. “I’m doing my best to educate myself by reading the New York Times and watching Fox News,” she says, “but I guess I’m dumb like most Americans!”
The official line for the atrocity carried out in Kandahar has now been clearly established: a US soldier went off base alone in the night and proceeded to kill 16 civilians in a nearby village before setting fire to the bodies.
Tensions were already inflamed over the burning of the Quran by American soldiers, and following on from the revelation of “kill teams” collecting body parts as “trophies” and the leaked footage of troops urinating on dead Afghans.
The latest line from the US government on the killings has been to discuss at length the mental state of the gunman. Initially, he was described as being possibly “deranged” at the time of the shootings; then, it was stated that he had suffered a “mental breakdown”, yet another soldier from Fort Lewis-McChord to have buckled under the strain of warfare and gone on a killing spree — a considerably more common trait for US soldiers than their NATO allies.
Additional reports have since emerged pointing to a “traumatic brain injury”.
So far, nothing seems out of the ordinary with this narrative – until you include the eyewitnesses.
According to PakTribune: “One Afghan father who said his children were killed in the shooting spree accused soldiers of later burning the bodies.” Reuters were told by witnesses that “a group of US soldiers” arrived at the village and were responsible for the killings.
Resident Haji Samad said:
They [the Americans] poured chemicals over their dead bodies and burned them … I saw that all 11 of my relatives were killed, including my children and grandchildren.
A neighbour, Agha Lala, added, “They were all drunk and shooting all over the place.”
The official response from the US came shortly after: “Based on the preliminary information we have this account is flatly wrong,” the official said. “We believe one US service member acted alone, not a group of US soldiers.”
No information has been provided to refute the testimony of the eyewitnesses, who also described shots being fired from several directions.
As Afghan lawmaker Abdul Rahim Ayubi observed,
It is not possible for only one American soldier to come out of his base, kill a number of people far away, burn the bodies, go to another house and kill civilians there, then walk at least 2 kilometers and enter another house, kill civilians and burn them.
Local Panjwai councilman, Abdul Ghani, corroborated the unlikelihood of a single shooter, stating, “The villagers said they were hearing machine gun fire and pistol fire from different directions.”
Afghan President Hamid Karzai to America: “You killed our children!”
While objectively-speaking the evidence would point towards multiple shooters, once again the media have taken the pronouncements of unnamed “US officials” as gospel truth.
The official line has been set in stone: in print and on the TV news channels.
As for the eyewitness accounts of drunken troops killing over a wider area, firing wildly, urinating on the dead bodies and then burning them—that, predictably, has been expunged from the record and gone down the Orwellian memory hole.
It never happened.

Pandora Alexandrovna Pushkin is a Russian-American academic and human rights activist.
Comment offered by Northerntruthseeker:
I have been just as disgusted as everyone else has been over the last week since learning of the attack on a group of 16 innocent Afghan civilians by some 20 US soldiers in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan.
That brutal attack, in which some nine women and children were needlessly slaughtered, was bad enough, but now today come new allegations that at least two of the women were raped by these US soldiers before being killed.
Two members of the fact-finding mission, Hamidzi Lali and Shakila Hashemi, told the general meeting of Afghanistan’s parliament on Saturday that the American troopers raped two Afghan women before starting the massacre.
It is no wonder that the people of Afghanistan are all up in arms over this latest senseless murder by the American occupiers of their country. There have naturally been new calls for the immediate withdrawal of all American and NATO forces from the country. The Americans have been in Afghanistan for ten years now—and they have definitely overstayed their “welcome”.
For the last few days, I have been watching the US news media outlets try to spin this latest act of cold-blooded murder, as they vainly try to get America off the hook. They have failing miserably. Instead, they have turned themselves into laughing stocks.
The real farce is that the US Government is continuing to spin this story as an act committed by a “lone gunman”. All the evidence shows otherwise.
The simple fact is again that America and NATO shouldn’t even be in Afghanistan in the first place. They were only sent there on command of their Rothschild Jewish masters to have the Opium poppy fields put back into production — this for the financial benefit of Lord Rothschild.
Now, 10 years later, they have literally destroyed Afghanistan. They have left it irradiated with depleted uranium—for the next four billion years! They have killed thousands of innocent Afghan civilians. They now have the impudence to suggest that, when they leave the country officially, they will nevertheless leave behind some of their troops as permanent “peace keepers”.
This latest act of murder by psychopathic American soldiers underlines an obvious point. America is not interested in peacekeeping. The Afghan people want America to leave. Every single American. Right now. They see the Americans as the rest of the world sees them: as brutal occupiers.
The 20 or so American soldiers responsible for this atrocity must be brought to justice immediately.
The US must not only apologize to the Afghan nation for this latest massacre, but it must withdraw its forces from Afghanistan at once.
I was not impressed at all with the Israeli Prime Minister Benji Netanyahu’s address to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee [AIPAC] Annual Policy Conference.
Netanyahu came to Washington for two reasons: (A), Secure presidential pardon for the convicted Jewish spy, Jonathon Pollard and (B), enlist U.S. comittment to bomb Iran. While US mainstream news media gave his rhetoric about Iran extensive coverage, not mentioning his request for Pollard’s release, whom Natanyahu visited in 2002. The release of Pollard was reported by Israeli daily Ynet. Pollard was a civilian intelligence analyst before being convicted of spying for Israel and who is serving a life sentence.
According to 16 US intelligence agencies and IAEA inspectors, Iran has no nukes, but Israel does. Iran has signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and Israel (with nuclear weapons) refuses to sign and refuses to allow AEIA inspectors into their nuclear facility.
This begs the question, why is it Iran–and not Israel–being subjected to strangling sanctions? Iran has never threatened Israel, America, or any of its neighbors, whereas Israel is threatening to bomb Iran every day and has a long history of attacking and invading many Arab countries.
Israel is now making life a hell on earth for Palestinians in Gaza, the West Bank and Jerusalem as I write this.
Where is the outrage, threats of sanctions and the calls for Israel to adhere to the rules of civilized nations?
Thankfully, this time president Obama stood his ground and showed this arrogant and ungrateful guest some back bone. Netanyahoo (by all appearances) left America empty-handed. He did however succeed to a ceratin extent. As Dr. Hassan El-Najjar, the editor of Aljazeera, put it:
“Netanyahu succeeded in putting the illegal Jewish settlements and the theft of Palestinian lands on the back burner.”
If I had to rate Benji’s barking–absurdly known as his ‘speech’ at the AIPAC conference—it deserves about a 3 out of 10.
Dull, boorish, and completely uninspired.
He was so overconfident in his actions, yet the words he spoke were plainly unconvincing. In general, it was a bad performance — even for this Israeli Drama Queen!
I believe Netanyahu’s demeanor throughout his speech will damage his likeability even amongst the faithful crowds at these AIPAC soirees. He showed us an ego that even the great hall couldn’t contain; the two body guards only reinforced that notion.
The way he leaned on the podium, holding those two letters aloft, revealed a sloppy and overconfident speaker. I will give him credit for begging for assistance, without really needing it. All the Congress knows what he came for. It will certainly please AIPAC.
The bit about walking like a duck and quacking like a duck, and pushing the audience to engage in the final ‘it must be a duck’, was very tacky and undignified for a supposed statesman. The man seemed intoxicated with his own power.
In truth, no one should support a man like this. He is only a self-deceiving beggar who happens to have nuclear weapons. He wants a foreign state, America, to sacrifice its citizens for HIS war.
This isn’t about Jewish survival. It’s about the “clean break strategy” that was implemented many years ago.
Netanyahu’s real objective is to get the American war machine to do his bidding through his congressional proxies. If this is the type of speech that excites the pro-Israel crowd, they are a sad and pathetic bunch indeed.
AIPAC speaks only for Israel, not for Jews — and certainly not for America.
AIPAC calls for war and not for diplomacy: one more war for Israel. A dirty and disastrous war: a war that neither they nor their children will be fighting.
Good red-blooded Americans should be screaming: no more dirty wars for Israel!

In order to clearly see our future, we must clearly see our past. As it stands now, our collective past disappears into a confusing fog of garbled legends all claiming to be the ultimate truth. Preachers of all these myths have one thing in common: the survival of their chosen creed is far more important to them than the message they preach.
At some point, for peace of mind, we are all compelled to either accept the ultimate truth of our lives on faith (learning from guides we have chosen to trust) or suffer the debilitating dysfunction of doubt.
Ever more steadily the world is learning—through constant revelations of sexual and financial debaucheries—that the doctrines and dogmas upon which we base our moral principles are riddled with falsehoods, hypocrisies, and provable misinformation.
The choice for all who seek to rid themselves of this unhealthy perversion of their thoughts is to undertake the arduous journey of self-knowledge, to find out who we are and why we chose the path we did.
The moment we choose to do that we realize that the Bible was written to cover up the real history of human society.
Yahweh is quoted as telling his fellow Elohim as they confounded the tongues of humanity at the Tower of Babel “so they would not become just like us”.
Though the priests of posterity built divine legends around them, in reality Yahweh and his crew were descendants of a worldwide tribe of seafaring plunderers who brought civilization to illiterate tribes with the magic of language and science, all done, of course, while relieving the primitive locals of their valuables.
Prehistoric legends of Viracocha, Thoth, Hermes and Odin invariably describe red haired white giants who—while they weren’t slaughtering feckless enemies—worked metal and planted crops, which were technological marvels thousands of years before the time of Christ.
In appreciative awe and subservient wonder, the Neolithic natives from whom we are descended called them gods.
Plato’s last essay told the tale of a Western land, a superior civilization that was destroyed by a cataclysm in extremely ancient history. A major philosophical industry has grown up around the Atlantis legend, but the subject as a whole has been largely excluded from mainstream history, cut off from the mind of man when it was erased from the mainstream by the establishment of the so-called Son of God in Rome.
That was when humanity was hoodwinked into worshipping a manipulated abstraction aimed at totalitarian control of the masses, which succeeded beyond anyone’s worst nightmares.
But before all that happened, human civilization had a very ancient history twice as long as the distance in time from the heyday of Rome to our present brink of World War III status. All this history is what the insane Christians burned in the Library of Alexandria or hid in the Vatican Library.
Plato’s Atlantis legend is very much infused with specific details from the Minoan civilization on the Mediterranean island of Crete which was destroyed by the great Thera volcano c. 1500 BC, precisely at the time the most ancient traditions of Egypt, Babylon and the Ionian legends began to be recorded. At that time, Crete and the seafaring Phoenicians controlled the known world. The famous Invasions of the Sea Peoples are what destroyed Egypt; the alphabet we use today comes from the Phoenicians; all the Greek gods derived from Crete.
But Plato insisted that the great island civilization was located beyond the Gates of Hercules, i.e., in the Atlantic Ocean. Although it may yet be a transcriber’s error, Plato placed the event of the great planetary destruction ten thousand years earlier.
And here is where Atlantis scholarship will forevermore change the way you think about the ancient history of your ancestors. This is the great secret they have covered up all these centuries, and probably is the basis of most of the secret societies in the world today.
For a period of about twenty years up until the late 1940s, a respected British newspaper editor named William Comyns Beaumont touted his theory that fragments of a great comet destroyed the fabulous civilization of the Hyperboreans, which he located somewhere between Scotland and Scandinavia.
In his epic “The Riddle of Prehistoric Britain”, Comyns Beaumont makes the astounding assertion that the written records of human civilization — Egypt, Sumer, Mycenaean Greece, the Indian subcontinent and South America — were all first established by giant white seafaring Nordic refugees from the great comet that destroyed their home in 1332 BC.
The sun turns black, | earth sinks in the sea,
The hot stars down | from heaven are whirled;
Fierce grows the steam | and the life-feeding flame,
Till fire leaps high | about heaven itself.
— Snorri Sturlason, AD 1315, Voluspo: The Wise Woman’s Prophecy
The work of Comyns Beaumont forms the basis of everything written by Immanuel Velikovsky (“Mankind in Amnesia”) and Michael Tsarion (“The Irish Origins of Civilization”), as well as dozens of other suppressed and forgotten scholars (Gerald Massey) who produced amazingly unpolluted versions of empirical ancient history.
Comyns Beaumont writes of the catastrophe in the the north that sent survivors sailing for safety all over the world. He finds the real story in a surprisingly late version of very ancient history, the Icelandic legends.
(p. 12) This occult verse, a sacred saga of the skalds [poets], describes how Surtur, known elsewhere as the Mighty One, flashed a flame with the power of sunlight with grim results. It describes a catastrophe when mountains collided, heaven itself was rent in twain, and how the race of Giants was hurled into Hell. The giants in the epic are related to the Scandinavian fabled city of Asgard.
When Odin and his gods went from Asgard to Scandinavia, they taught the natives everything. They even played chess.
“Mythology was never purposeless,” Comyns Beaumont writes. “It was skillfully devised to survive as folklore. A connection may be found between the city of Asgard, that of Knossos, the ‘divine’ city of Crete, or Ur of the Chaldees, and of the capital of Atlantis, all related to the flood epoch . . . .”
The authors’ contention — and the contention of the many who have followed his sensational research — is that the ancient Greek myth of Phaeton, who flew too close to the Sun and crashed is the tale that has perpetuated the story of the comet that destroyed the civilization known as Atlantis.
The academic pettifoggery known as the Ice Age is demolished by Comyns Beaumont — “a tremendous convulsion of nature, which had the most direful effect on the peoples of Britain, Scandinavia and northern Asia.” It also made the Earth’s orbit 5 1/4 days longer.
(p.16) . . . sudden, devastating, appalling in its destructiveness . . . a celestial impact of an immense cometary body . . . rained or distributed rocks, stones, boulder clay, till, gravel, sand . . . over great areas . . it created islands, drowned others, caused immense tidal waves, swallowed up coastal lands, consumed huge spaces with electric waves [fires], set up volcanoes, and swept away cities . . . almost in a flash. It disorganized civilization for a lengthy period and its residual effects are experienced to this day. . . . Its coming is preserved for the information of humanity on the Golspie Stone . . . The Catastrophe . . . was the Flood of the Scriptures.
Irish legends match the Icelandic ones. The Athenians wrote of the war between the Gods of Olympus and the Titans. A later version of the tale is the Biblical story of the fallen angels in the Book of Enoch.
As it happened, right after I read Comyns Beaumont’s ‘Riddle’ about real ancient history, I serendipitously opened a book from the Welsh Heritage Series, titled “A History of the Red Dragon.”
As I read through it, and the author droned on about what kind of mythological beast the dragon could have possibly represented, I kept saying out loud, “It’s the comet, you ninny!” But he never made the connection. Listen to what he said.
(p. 18) The dragon has sometimes been seen as one of the many fictitious beasts of the ancient Near East, a region rich in monsters . . . [!] To this region we owe, for example, the unicorn and the many races of weird wild men which, in the Middle Ages, were associated with India.
There is a broad consistency in the image, the habits and functions of dragons from China and India through Mesopotamia and the West which is difficult to account for except by diffusion from a common source. But such diffusion of beliefs about the dragon is more likely to have passed between peoples who already knew the monster and had strong feelings about him . . .
The dragon pictures and beliefs found in pre-Columbian America, in Australasia and in the Pacific Islands show that some kind of indigenous dragon had been pre-existent in those cultures long before they became accessible to cultural diffusion from the Near East.
[p. 20] The original dragon was not copied directly either from nature or from neighbors. It was created everywhere in the minds of archaic peoples who felt a frightening awareness of some great and dangerous force . . .
The enemies of humankind
Lurk in the human heart, you’ll find:
Here fly the dragons of the mind.
— Anonyma, The Book of Hidden Things
But this author never made the connection to the ancient comet that changed everything and blotted out the Sun before destroying large parts of the planet — it changed the Earth’s orbit so that astrologers had to rejigger their calculations, it destroyed numerous lives and civilizations, and embedded a terror in the minds of all who lived that, to this day, has never completely left us.
The dragon is the comet, and the comet is the wrathful God of every religion ever invented on Planet Earth.
There were giants in the earth in those days:
and also after that, when the sons of God
came in unto the daughters of men,
and they bare children to them,
the same became mighty men
which were of old, men of renown.
— Genesis 6:4
The Nephilim are major players in the Old Testament. They were the Giants of old.
Their strength was prodigious and their appetites immense. Upon devouring all of humankind’s resources, they began to consume humans themselves. The Nephilim attacked and oppressed humans and were the cause of massive destruction on the earth. <http://www.nephilim.nl/>
The Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls chart a succession of huge people gradually getting smaller over time as the giant genes were eventually diluted.
Two texts of central import to the story of the Nephilim, the Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls, mention several names for the Nephilim. The diverse kinds of these giants are cited in several passages. They are variously referred to as Emim, or “Terrors” (Gen. 14:5; Deut. 2:10), Rephaim, or “Weakeners” or “Dead Ones” (2 Sam. 23:13; 1 Chron. 11:15), Gibborim, or “Giant Heroes” (Job 16:4), Zamzummim, or “Achievers” (Deut. 2:10), Anakim, or “Long-necked” (Deut. 2:10; Josh. 11:22, 14:15), and Awwim or “Devastators” and “Serpents.”
Other giants are mentioned in these texts as well, such as Goliath (2 Sam. 21:19), a giant with twelve fingers and twelve toes who is mentioned as one of the Rephaim (2 Sam. 21:20), and a tall Egyptian (1 Chron. 11:23). The passage of Numbers 13:26-33 recounts the Nephilim of Canaan that Joshua and the other Hebrew spies saw. Furthermore, according to Judaic lore, a certain one of the Nephilim, Arba, built a city, Kiriath Arba, which was named for its builder and is now known as Hebron.
The wickedness of the Nephilim carried with it a heavy toll. Genesis 6:5 alludes to the corruption that the Nephilim had caused amongst humans and themselves: “The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become…” Their evil rebellion had incurred both the wrath and grief of God.
God instructed the angel Gabriel to ignite a civil war among the Nephilim. He also chose Enoch, a righteous man, to inform the fallen angels of the judgment pronounced on them and their children. God did not allow the fallen angels any peace, for they could not lift their eyes to heaven and were later to be chained. The end of the Nephilim came about in the war incited by Gabriel, in which the giants eventually annihilated each other. <http://www.pantheon.org/articles/n/nephilim.html>
There’s that false official version of history again. Oh, they killed each other after an angel went to see them, typical Biblical nonsense. Sounds a lot like what Hillary Clinton says when she goes to Pakistan. Any resemblance to current political tactics is not coincidental.
In Biblical historical texts, the Amorites are most frequently mentioned in connection with the Nephilim and the Nephilim-based tribes. Sayce, among other historians, have uncovered historical references to the Amorite-based Nephilim as being of light complexion, being blue-eyed, and possessing dolichocephalic traits (aka: “long-headed”). <http://www.nephilimskulls.com/Articles.asp?ID=142>
The Nephilim are major players in the Old Testament. They were the Giants of old.
The Norse legends are full of stories about Giants, but they all revolve around the Twilight of the Gods and the Armageddon caused by the comet called Surtur, which is chiefly known in the 21st century as a bad ass Marvel comic book character with a blazing sword. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surtur_(Marvel_Comics)>
The conclusions of Comyns Beaumont and the reams of scholarship on the same theme that have followed in his wake all point to this event as the critical link to the foundations of our civilization. For one thing, it explains how all the ancient civilizations arrive in written history fully formed in their institutions, practices and achievements.
Contemplate for a moment, if you will, that all the history you have ever learned is false and that according to Comyns Beaumont, civilization did not come to Europe from the East: it was spread to the far corners of the world by white giants who has mastered the sea and a written language that made them seem like extraterrestrial gods to the primitive natives whom they plundered.
And that leads us to an even more momentous question about the origin of rivalries that led to wars on this planet.
If white giants who fled the wrath of the great comet all those years ago founded or guided all the ancient civilizations in their practices and rituals, how does it come to be that we are now divided up into so many warring factions once united in our mutual compassion about that mind boggling terror from the sky?
Is it not the same con game that has continued since even before the dawn of civilization, with the more powerful and smarter whites exploiting feckless natives perpetually in the dark about everything? The same thing that’s happening today?
White giants with awesome weapons and unfathomably sophisticated language pretend to be the benefactors of the less enlightened with all sorts of technological attractions, but why are these countries always plundered and turned to rubble? Since the dawn of time.
How odd would it be if it were me, a serious chronicler of Jewish depredations throughout history, who absolved the Jews of their collective guilt for the crimes they continue to commit, because he discovered that all the religions of the world have their roots in the genes and teachings of giant white barbarian druids from Scotland who colonized the entire world before anything was ever written down?
In my life, two of the people I respect the most have both disagreed with me about blaming Jews for the condition of the world. R.D. Willing, author of “Money: the 12th and Final Religion”, tried to tell me it was the Brits who were running the Jews, but he hadn’t read Comyns Beaumont.
And when I asked Eustace Mullins, foremost chronicler of Jewish perfidy in world history, whether it was the Sanhedrin or the Queen who really ran everything, he replied without hesitation, “The Queen.” But Eustace hadn’t read Manetho, the Egyptian historian who reveals the Hebrew invasion of ancient Egypt, nor did he know about the comet.
How odd would it be if Richard and Eustace were right for the wrong reasons, because the basis of all world cultures was seeded so very long ago by the white giants of prehistoric times so vividly depicted in the Icelandic legends?
Maybe somebody somewhere will print out this story and file it in a drawer that somehow will wind up in a cave centuries into the future that will accurately explain what happened to us as a species and caused what is about to happen to us now to happen at all. (Short answer? Priests.)
The gods that came down from heaven were actually fragments of a comet that destroyed significant parts of the planet. That’s what first got people to analyze the sky, and read human portents into its activities, and eventually fantasize deities whose wrathful temper ruled the lives of men.
Those who survived this cataclysm began the civilization that we know today, as those who survive the many contrived cataclysms that approach us now will, in a similarly haphazard way, begin the civilization of tomorrow.

From you I wanted a great and noble gesture,
A revelation of the infinite generosity of the universe
That has allowed such a petty creature as man to exist.
I wanted in you a fearless embrace of the beauty
Of the moment, a sovereign self-disregard,
The supreme sense of air between five fingers
That knows that nothing lasts, knows it cannot hold,
But with its hand plays the game of passion to the end,
And finishes by wiping off its own hot tears,
While honoring, in a few words, all that was lost.
I wanted this from you! — I wanted you to love me
For what I could almost see in you, and sensed,
And poured out in words – Come, come!
You did not come. You could not see me
Slipping away between the spaces in your hand
As you stood and waved goodbye — perhaps
Your hands were light, had not felt the weight of tears.
Writers who are critical of Washington’s illegal wars and the overthrow of the US Constitution could soon find themselves in indefinite detention. This is because criticism of Washington’s policies can be alleged to be aiding Washington’s enemies—which might include charities that provide aid to bombed Palestinian children and flotillas that attempt to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza.
The Bush/Obama regimes have put the foundation in place for imprisoning critics of the government without due process of law. The First Amendment is being all but restricted to rah-rah Americans who chant USA! USA! USA! Washington has set itself up as world prosecutor, forever berating other countries for human rights violations, while Washington alone bombs half a dozen countries into the stone age and threatens several more with the same treatment, all the while violating US statutory law and the Geneva Conventions by torturing detainees.
Washington rounds up assorted foreign politicians, whose countries were afflicted with civil wars, and sends them off to be tried as war criminals, while its own war crimes continue to mount. However, if a person exposes Washington’s war crimes, that person is held without charges in conditions that approximate torture.
Bradley Manning is the case in point. Manning, a US soldier, is alleged to be the person who released to WikiLeaks the “Collateral Murder” video, which, in the words of Marjorie Cohn, “depicts U.S. forces in an Apache helicopter killing 12 unarmed civilians, including two Reuters journalists. People trying to rescue the wounded were also fired upon and killed.”
One of the Good Samaritans was a father with two small children. The video reveals the delight that US military personnel experienced in blowing them away from the distant skies. When it became clear that the Warriors Bringing The People Democracy had blown away two small children, instead of remorse we hear an executioner’s voice saying: “that’s what he gets for bringing children into a war zone.”
The quote is from memory, but it is accurate enough. When I first saw this video, I was astonished at the brazen war crime. It is completely obvious that the dozen or so murdered people were simply people walking along a street, threatening no one, unarmed, doing nothing out of the ordinary. It was not a war zone. The horror is that the US soldiers were playing video games with live people. You can tell from their commentary that they were having fun by killing these unsuspecting people walking along the street. They enjoyed killing the father who stopped to help and shooting up his vehicle with the two small children inside.
This was not an accident of a drone, fed with bad information, blowing up a school full of children, or a hospital, or a farmer’s family. This was American soldiers having fun with high tech toys killing anyone that they could pretend might be an enemy.
When I saw this, I realized that America was lost. Evil had prevailed.
I was about to write that nothing has been done about the crime. But something was done about it. An American soldier who recognized the horrific war crime knew that the US military knew about it and had done nothing about it. He also knew that as a US soldier he was required to report war crimes. But to whom? War crimes dismissed as “collateral damage” are the greatest part of Washington’s 21st century wars.
A soldier with a moral conscience gave the video to WikiLeaks. We don’t know who the soldier is. Washington alleges that the soldier is Bradley Manning, but Washington lies every time it opens its mouth. So we will never know.
All we know is that retribution did not fall on the perpetrators of the war crime. It fell upon the two accused of revealing it–Bradley Manning and Julian Assange.
Manning was held almost two years without charges being presented to a court. In December’s pre-trial hearings all Washington could come up with was concocted accusations. No evidence whatsoever. The prosecutor, a Captain Fein, told the court, if that is what it is, that Manning had been “trained and trusted to use multiple intelligence systems, and he used that training to defy that trust. He abused our trust.”
In other words, Manning gave the world the truth of a war crime that was being covered up, and Washington and the Pentagon regard a truth teller doing his duty under the US military code as an “abuser of trust.”
Captain Fein could not have put it any clearer. If you tell the truth and reveal Washington’s war crimes, you have aided the enemy. Captain Fein’s simple sentence has at one stroke abolished all whistleblower protections written into US statutory law and the First Amendment, and confined anyone with a moral conscience and sense of decency to indefinite detention and torture.
According to American officials, Manning is treated with kindness and consideration. This treatment consists of the following:
(1) Solitary confinement in a small cell for 23 hours a day, forcibly naked and without his prescription glasses so that he is effectively blind. He is allowed his glasses only when reading; but if he pauses for a moment to muse on what he has read, his glasses are confiscated in case he attempts to commit suicide with them. (2) Being hassled every five minutes with the infuriating question “Are you okay?” and being forced to answer “Yes.” (3) One hour of “exercise” a day which involves walking round in circles in the prison yard with heavy shackles round his legs. His exercise is stopped instantly if he stumbles or pauses even for a second. (4) He is not allowed to exercise in his cell to make up for his spitefully confiscated exercise while in the prison yard. (5) At the whim of his jailers, he is forced to stand naked outside his cell while other prisoners are paraded past and allowed to mock his sufferings.
There is no record of Bradley Manning having been waterboarded so far, but future American detainees now face this additional prospect under the draconian National Defense Authorization Act passed by Obama on December 31, 2011.
On June 2, 2010, George W. Bush proudly confessed, “Yeah, we waterboarded…I’d do it again.”
President Barrack Obama appears to be equally unconcerned about the torture of American citizens. When recently asked about the prosecution of Bush administration officials for torture, he answered evasively, “I’m a strong believer that it’s important to look forward and not backwards.”
Washington, in a brazen display of hypocrisy, accuses other countries of human rights abuses, while Congress has passed and President Obama has signed an indefinite detention and torture bill that US Representative Ron Paul says will accelerate America’s “slip into tyranny” and “descent into totalitarianism.”
In signing the Bill of Tyranny, President Obama indicated that he thought that the tyranny established by the bill did not go far enough. He announced that he was signing the bill with signing statements that reserved his right, regardless of any law, to send American citizens, deprived of due process and constitutional protection, abroad to be tortured.
This is the US government that claims to be a government of “freedom and democracy” and to be bringing “freedom and democracy” to others with bombs and invasions.
The past year gave us other ominous tyrannical developments. President Obama announced that he had a list of Americans whom he intended to assassinate without due process of law, and Homeland Security, itself an Orwellian name, announced that it had shifted its attention from terrorists to “domestic extremists.” The latter are undefined and consist of whomever Homeland Security so designates.
None of this was done behind closed doors. The murder of the US Constitution was a public crime witnessed by all.
Local and state police forces have been militarized not only in their equipment and armament but also in their attitude toward the public. Despite the absence of domestic terror attacks, Homeland Security conducts warrantless searches of cars and trucks on highways and of passengers using public transportation. A uniformed federal service is being trained to systematically violate the constitutional rights of citizens, and citizens are being trained to accept these violations as normal. The young have no memory of being able to board public transportation or use public roadways without intrusive searches or to gather in protest without being brutalized by the police. Liberty is being moved into the realm of myth and legend.
In such a system as is being constructed in public in front of our eyes, there is no freedom, no democracy, and no liberty. What stands before us is naked tyranny.
While America degenerates into a total police state, politicians constantly invoke “our values.” What are these values? Indefinite imprisonment without conviction in a court. Torture. Warrantless searches and home invasions. An epidemic of police brutality. Curtailment of free speech and peaceful assembly rights. Unprovoked aggression called “preemptive war.” Interference in the elections and internal affairs of other countries. Economic sanctions imposed on foreign populations whose leaders are not in Washington’s pocket.
If the American police state were merely an unintended consequence of a real war against terror, it could be dismantled when the war was over. However, the evidence is that the police state is an intended consequence. The PATRIOT Act is a voluminous and clever attack on the Constitution. It is not possible that it could have been written in the short time between 9/11 and its introduction in Congress. It was waiting on the shelf.
The dismantling of constitutionally protected civil liberties is purposeful, as is the accumulation of arbitrary and unaccountable powers in the executive branch of government. As there have been no terrorist events within the US in over a decade except for those known to have been organized by the FBI, there is no terrorist threat that justifies the establishment of a political regime of unaccountable power. It is being done on purpose under false pretenses, which means that there is an undeclared agenda. The threat that Americans face resides in Washington, D.C.
I suspect that turning things around internally through the political system is not in the cards. Our chance to resurrect liberty might come from Washington’s hubris. Imperial ambitions and drive for power can produce unmanageable upheavals and a loss of allies. Overreach abroad with a demoralized, unemployed and downtrodden population at home are not the ingredients of success.
How much longer will the Russian government permit NGOs funded by the US Endowment for Democracy to interfere in its elections and to organize political protests? How much longer will China confuse its strategic interests with the American consumer market? How much longer will Japan, Canada, Australia, Britain, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, and the Middle East oil states remain US puppets? How much longer can the dollar retain the reserve currency role when the Federal Reserve is monetizing vast quantities of debt?
America’s salvation will come when Washington suffers defeat of its hegemonic ambitions.
The American public has no way of knowing whether tortured detainees are terrorists or political opponents. Why are Americans prepared to take the word of a government that told them intentionally the lie that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and was a threat to America?
Power attracts the worst kind of persons. As Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo prove, democracies are not immune to the evil use of power. Indeed, identical inhumane treatment of prisoners goes on inside the US prison system for ordinary criminals.
Over-fed goon cops taser little children and people in wheel chairs. They body slam elderly grandmothers. The police are a horror. They represent a greater threat to citizens than do criminals.
Punishment without crime is now the American Way.
In one decade the US has been transformed from a free society into a police state. The American population, to the extent it is aware of what has occurred, has simply accepted the revolution from the top.
Americans seem to welcome the era of tyranny into which they are now entering.

What my heart longs for, my conscience would forbid—
Here’s two thousand years of history, neatly said.
In our late abandonment, we lie along the road—
Too long and hard!—and wonder why we bothered.
Scratching at free love, we found its claw to differ
When it shoved into our throats the gloved hand of power.
So nothing was what it seemed, we said then—
It was a way of getting round this bitter, bitter bend.
Love will have a conscience, else all will be dead—
The flower springing from the past opens at the head,
Or else it springs, and withers prematurely.
And we are there by now—even past it, surely.
Caryl Johnston is a poet and writer/editor who lives in Philadelphia. Here is one of her blogs. The above poem is taken from her book Indulge Me Once (www.lulu.com).
Over a year ago, Dr Lasha Darkmoon wrote an article called Germany Then, America Now, in which striking parallels were drawn between pre-Hitler Germany and contemporary America. Darkmoon was to conclude that America—for seven reason she lists in this expanded article here—is now in a far worse condition than Germany was before the ascent of Hitler to power in 1933. The same point is now made, but with further facts and fascinating details, in a recent article called Weimar Meets America: A Study in National Collapse. Brother Nathanael Kapner of Zionist Watch is interviewing ex- Green Beret Joe Cortina, a special operations officer and US Army Training Center commander. — John Scott Montecristo, Editor
Joe Cortina: Yes. The similarities of the situation are a warning direct from the wisdom of philosopher George Santana, “Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.”
Br Nathanael: Let’s look at that history. Americans are hard pressed today. Was there anything like this among the Germans prior to the coming of the Third Reich in 1933?
Joe Cortina: The Germans of the Weimar period were in a horrible situation: out of work—declining purchasing power of their currency—starved— humiliated—robbed of land and dominated by Jews to much the same extent as we now see in America.
The Germans of that period were virtually all Christians with strong family values and a Christian work ethic.
This is the case in America. However, with the media occupied by Jews—the courts controlled by Jews—and finance under the reign of Jews—all Christian expression is either stifled or ridiculed, and all opportunities for an expression of a White Christian work ethic has been shipped overseas by Jewish investment bankers.
Br Nathanael: Let’s start with the media. Any parallels between Weimar and America today?
Joe Cortina: Weimar’s media was controlled almost exclusively by Jews.
The two largest German newspapers before 1933 were in Jewish hands: Leopold Ullstein, August Scherl, and Rudolf Mosse. These Jews had a virtual monopoly on the German press.
Their chief publication was the Berliner Tageblatt which for many years was looked upon abroad as representative of German public opinion.
The editor of this paper was Theodor Wolff, a Jew, who also took a prominent part in politics. All editorials, all policy, all thought was totally under Jewish control—America’s sad state today.
Br Nathanael: How about parallels in employment?
Joe Cortina: There were no ‘unemployed Jews’ in the midst of mass unemployment since Jews would not get their hands ‘dirty’ to do honest hard work.
The Jews led privileged lives of luxury while the average German struggled to keep his family fed. The Jewish statistician, Alfred Marcus, estimated the average Jewish income for 1930 as three times the average income of the rest of the population. Sound familiar?
Br Nathanael: How about parallels in finance?
Joe Cortina: Once again the Jew dominated and strangled the working German.
First of all, the Jewish banker, Max Warburg, represented fallen Germany at Versailles and was instrumental in forming the Weimar Republic. Hugo Pruess, a Jew, wrote Weimar’s constitution.
The result was that between 1925 and 1929 four of the six members of the controlling board of the Reichsbank directors were Jews including Jakob Goldschmidt and Rudolf Havenstein.
With unpatriotic Jews at the head of Germany’s monetary policy, whose ties with international Jewry took precedence over Germany’s interests, hyperinflation set in and the German Mark became worthless. America is now about to experience its own “Weimar Moment.”
Br Nathanael: And last, any similarities regarding moral degradation?
Joe Cortina: The floodgates were opened for Jewish depravity when all barriers in the form of censorship during the monarchy were removed after Germany’s defeat in 1918.
Then a torrent of immoral literature, films and plays poured into Germany, primarily nourished by Jews. Weimar Jewish poet, Stefan Zweig, feared a backlash against Jewry when he termed the transformation of Berlin “into the Babylon of the World.”
“Even the Rome of Suetonius has never known such orgies as the pervert balls of Berlin,” observed Zweig, “where hundreds of men costumed as women and hundreds of women dressed as men danced under the benevolent eyes of the police.”
Zweig had written to Martin Buber, saying, “It’s disgusting how Jews are taking everything by storm. Should it not be our responsibility to anticipate the justified Anti-semitic indignation and call our people back to their senses.”
Br Nathanael: Can you be more specific regarding immoral literature, films and plays produced by German Jewry?
Joe Cortina: Publishing houses like Benjamin Harz, Leon Hirsch, and Jacobsthal & Co, were putting out books that undermined Christian sexual mores.
The titles say it all: “Sittengeschichte des Lasters” (History Of Morals and Vices), “Bilderlexikon der Erotic” (Picture Lexicon of Eroticism), “Sittengischichte des Geheime und Verbotene” (History of the Secret and the Forbidden).
Jews, by the way, waged an energetic campaign for free abortion. Jews such as Dr Max Hodann, Dr Lothar Wolf, Martha Ruben-Wolf, and Alfons Goldschmidt wrote numerous articles encouraging abortion and birth control.
Br Nathanael: Film and theatre?
Joe Cortina: Leading the film and theatre business in Weimar were Jews such as Josef von Sternberg, Bertolt Brecht, Erich Pommer, and a host of other Jewish purveyors of filth.
A random choice of film and theatre titles sheds light on the spirit of Jewish-produced depravity during the Weimar period: “Sundige Mutter” (Sinful Mama), “Wenn Ein Weib Den Weg Verliert” (When A Woman Loses Her Way), “Zieh Dich Aus” (Get Undressed) – “Tausend Nackte Frauen” (One Thousand Naked Women).
But once Hitler came into power, he put an end to the endless filth coming out of the Jewish film and theatre industry. But for now there’s no end to the filth coming out of Jewish Hollywood.
Br Nathanael: Can you sum it all up for us?
Joe Cortina: What the Jews did to the Germans during the Weimar period they are now doing to the American people.
They have stolen our wealth—our freedoms—our prosperity—our traditions— our moral character—our honor, our wholesomeness, and our Christian heritage.
Should a strong new voice of clarity and conviction appear and convince me and my family that he could and would lead us out of this occupation by aliens and unite our people in a just cause—ending Jewish influence—I would follow him since there is no other choice—no other hope—you’re damn right I would.
Perhaps Jewry would do well to learn a lesson from Weimar and how it was addressed by the Third Reich—because next time it just might be the whole world screaming for justice and an end of Jewry’s evil. This time, once and for all!
