“I am convinced that nearly all wars are caused so that someone will profit and those who profited and those who are profiting now are the International Financiers, the Jews. Gather together the fifty most wealthy Jewish Financiers, the men who create wars for their own profits, control them and you will put an end to it all.” — Henry Ford

By William Anderson


In the years before World War II, the American public had no desire to go to war in either Europe or Asia. We, as Americans, had no interest in warring with Germany, Italy or Japan. Yet America was forced to battle the Axis Powers for four long years at the sole behest of International Jewry.

In fact, World Jewry commenced its War against Germany in 1933, the year Hitler came to power, even before he had time to begin implementing a program for pulling Germany out of its own economic depression. [See headline below dated 3/24/33]


Jewry’s declaration of a “holy war” against Germany was issued by Samuel Untermeyer of the World Jewish Federation who said in the New York “Times” of 7 Aug. 1933 that it would be means of an “economic boycott that will undermine the Hitler regime and bring the German people to their senses by destroying their export trade on which their very existence depends.” Furthermore, the Toronto “Evening Telegram” of 26 Feb. 1940 quotes Rabbi Maurice L. Perlzweig of the World Jewish Congress as telling a Canadian audience that “the World Jewish Congress has been at war with Germany for seven years” (i.e. 1933).


They somehow forget to say a word on any of this during all those History Channel documentaries. These stinking Jew mothers get us Goyim into wars killing each other all the time! (INCOG)

Jews were obviously willing to back up their threats, for the London “Sunday Chronicle” of 2 Jan. 1938 reported that “leaders of International Jewry” had met in Geneva, Switzerland to set up a $2.5 BILLION fund to undermine the economic stability of Germany.

However, Jewish boycotts against Germany failed to bring that nation to its knees as Hitler had already freed Germany from dependence on Jewish usury. Since economic pressure by World Jewry could not break the back of Germany, it was determined that an actual war would be necessary to destroy Hitler.


The Jewish desire for war was admitted to by Rabbi Felix Mendelsohn in the Chicago “Sentinel” of 8 Oct. 1942 where he states: “The Second World War is being fought for the defense of the fundamentals of Judaism.” Thus, Rabbi Mendelsohn flatly expresses the view that WWII was a Jewish war.

This Jewish scheme came to fruition in 1939 when Germany invaded Poland. Britain and France, under Jewish domination, then declared war on Germany, conveniently ignoring the fact that the Soviet Union (under Jewish rule) had also invaded Poland.

As proof, James Forrestal, later to become Secretary of Defense, in his diary of 27 Dec. 1945 notes that he played golf with Joseph Kennedy, FDR’s ambassador to Britain, who told him that ex-Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain “stated that America and the world Jews had forced England into war.” For his candor and later opposition to the bandit state of Israel, Forrestal was murdered in 1949 (ruled a “suicide”). [The Forrestal Diaries, Life Magazine October 15th, 1951]

Jews throughout the world screamed that Germany was intent on ruling the world, but Gen. George C. Marshall admitted after the war, in testimony before Congress, that no proof could be found that Hitler planned any conquest of the world.

In fact, Hitler’s actions against Czechoslovakia over the Sudentenland and Poland over Danzig were just part of Hitler’s long stated desire to re-acquire the territory taken from Germany after WWI in the Treaty of Versailles.


While stones are being cast, it should be recalled that after Germany took back the Sudentenland from Czechoslovakia, Poland seized the territory of Teschen from the Czechs which it had no claims toward.

So, after the Jews had ignited a war in Europe, it was found to be necessary to draw America into that war as France had fallen and Britain tottered on the brink of defeat.

To bring the U.S. into this Jewish war, International Jewry had the services of a master at corrupt politics — the one and only Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Interestingly enough, Col. Curtis Dall who was once FDR’s son-in-law accused Roosevelt of being partly Jewish. In any event, Roosevelt was surrounded by plenty of Jewish advisors such as Bernard Baruch, S. I. Rosenman, Sidney Weinburg, Sidney Hillman and Felix Frankfurter.*

For the first time, Jewry had a President who was totally subservient to them and they spared no effort to keep him in office [four terms]. For example, when it appeared that Sen. Huey Long would defeat Roosevelt for the 1939 Democratic nomination, he was assassinated by Dr. Carl Weiss, a Jew.


Nevertheless, American public opinion was overwhelmingly opposed to any involvement in WWII. Americans realized that they had been duped into WWII and were not interested in losing the lives of loved ones in a war that offered no benefits to the U.S. In effect, Americans were heeding the advice of George Washington in his “Farewell Address” where he warned that Americans must not become involved in entangling alliances with foreign nations.

Those patriots who followed Washington’s sound advice were disparagingly referred to as “isolationists,” but they were, in actuality, neutralists. Thus Congress, acting on the will of the people, passed the Neutrality Act of 1935 which embargoed any U.S. arms from being sent to a warring nation.

About three years later, in 1938, Rep. Louis Ludlow of Indiana introduced a resolution requiring a public vote of support for any declaration of war by Congress. Roosevelt and the Jews knew this measure could easily destroy their efforts, so an all out attack on the resolution was launched. As a result, the Ludlow bill was narrowly defeated.


The Jews had good reason to block the resolution for the American Institute for Public Opinion (AIPO) released at that time a poll showing 83% of the citizens opposed to U.S. intervention in an European war.

Moreover, in April 1939, during the height of war fever, a whopping 95% opposed American entry into a war against Germany. That’s right, virtually every citizen was soundly against the U.S. involving itself in a foreign war. As a result, Congress strengthened the Neutrality Act by barring commerce and travel, as well as arms, to any belligerent power.

At this point, the Jews began to show signs of desperation, but these wily manipulators of world events still had a few tricks up their collective sleeve. So, in 1939 an immense propaganda campaign, the likes of which had never before been seen, was launched. No stone was left unturned in Jewry’s assault on the minds of the American people.

One was bombarded with the most outlandish lies about Hitler and Germany from all sides -in newspapers, magazines, books, radio and motion pictures. FDR also unleashed the powerful, persuasive techniques of the federal government in the blitz to “hate Germany.”


To get an idea of just how far this propaganda attack went, one should note that the Jew Theodore Kaufman wrote a book entitled “Germany Must Perish,” which outlined a plan to exterminate Germans by sterilizing 48 million of them. Believe it or not, this call for genocide by a Jew was well received in many influential circles. [Online Book: Germany Must Perish!]

Conversely, Germany never carried out a “holocaust” against the Jews, but after the war was accused of doing so any way. This “holocaust” trumped up by Jewry has been used since WWII to divert attention from their own machinations to plunge America into the maelstrom of yet another war.

The Jew orchestrated assault of hate against Germany was successful in cowering Congress into lifting the arms embargo and allowed the free flow of weapons to Britain and later to the Soviet Union. This action made U.S. ships carrying the arms fair targets for German subs; but no attacks occurred [until October 31, 1941], which is certainly odd behavior for a “madman” (Hitler) bent on “world rule.”

While Congress succumbed to the barrage of hate propaganda, the public remained totally against the war. For instance, in Oct. 1940 about 83% polled were opposed to U.S. involvement. In April 1941, it was 85% against and in July 1941, opposition was pegged at a healthy 79%. Not surprisingly, the pollsters quit asking the question at this point, as FDR and Jewry had all but gotten war officially declared.

By 1940, Roosevelt had rammed through Congress a draft and conscription although polls indicated at least 50% of the public was against such a move. By now it should be perfectly obvious that World Jewry had begun planning for U.S. entry into the war at least three years before Pearl Harbor, despite overwhelming opposition.

Speaking of Pearl Harbor, it is important to understand the complete facts surrounding the “surprise attack.” While 95% of all respondents were opposed to war in 1939, about 90% indicated they were willing to fight if directly attacked. Operating on this information, Jewry did everything possible to goad either Germany or Italy into attacking America.However, the bait was refused as Hitler was attempting at that time to negotiate a peace with England, which was flatly rejected by the Jew lackey Churchill.

Thus Jewry’s attention turned toward Japan, which had a mutual defense pact with Germany and Italy. Japan had been engaged in a war with China which FDR and the Jews tried to use as an excuse for American intervention, even though the events in Asia were of no concern to America.

Jewish, not American, interests however were what concerned Roosevelt and in July 1941, he froze Japanese assets in the U.S. and embargoed trade. This was reason enough to declare war, but Japan humbly proposed to sit down and negotiate U.S.-Japanese differences. Instead of accepting the offer, FDR insulted Japanese Ambassador Nomura and refused to meet with Prime Minister Konoye.

As a result, Konoye and his “peace party” were replaced by Gen. Tojo and his “war party,” yet Japan continued to make peace overtures only to have them all flatly rejected. Finally, on 26 Nov. 1941, Roosevelt sent an ultimatum to Japan which amounted to a virtual declaration of war. This ultimatum, according to Prof. Harry Elmer Barnes, was actually drafted by Jew Harry Dexter White (Weiss) in collaboration with Jewish Treasury Secretary Harry Morgenthau.

It was this ultimatum, penned by two Jews, that forced Japan to attack or else “lose face,” which in Oriental thinking is a fate worse than death. The final, sorry episode of this disgusting chain of events is that Washington knew of the impending attack on Pearl Harbor at least 12 hours before the blow fell, but refused to warn military officers there.


The U.S. had been forewarned since the Japanese message code had been broken and America was thus able to monitor Japanese dispatches. No word was sent to Pearl Harbor by FDR and the Jews as the messages revealed that the attack should be called off if it appeared that the Americans were prepared.


So International Jewry by going through the “back door” had successfully ensnared America into WWII; a war that would cost millions of lives and billions of dollars. The bottom line of the war would be a world under the total subjugation of Jewry through its twin arms of Communism and Zionism.

These facts have been covered up and ignored in the mass media, but Charles Lindbergh, for one, recognized where the finger of proof pointed. In his “Wartime Journals,” he states that “the Jews, the Roosevelt administration, and British sympathizers combined to encourage the U.S. to enter World War II.”


Lindbergh and other patriots sought to stop Jewry’s war plans by setting up the America First Committee. The committee found widespread support, but could not overcome the billions spent by Jews to brainwash the public into accepting war after Pearl Harbor.

And it is Jewry which best recognizes why the U.S. entered WWII. “The American Hebrew,” in an editorial of 24 July 1942, declared that “whenever an American or a Filipino fell at Bataan or Corregidor or at any other of the now historic spots where MacArthur’s men put up their remarkable fight, their survivors could have said with truth: the real reason that boy went to his death was because Hitler’s anti-semitic movement succeeded in Germany.”

The above quotation from a Jewish newspaper is an admission that the U.S. entered WWII only at the behest of World Jewry — a war Jewry declared all the way back in 1933! Of course, this admission was intended only for consumption by a Jewish audience to keep them in the know, which tends to make it all the more revealing.


Any American involvement in a foreign conflict should be judged as to whether it is in the best interest of the American nation; yet the U.S. entered WWII because it was in the best interest of International Jewry.

Thus, the Jews forced the U.S. into war against the public’s will in 1941 and the $64 million question is will it happen again? Events are already pointing towards a build-up of war hysteria. Without a doubt, Jewry is leading America by the nose towards war in the Middle East on behalf of the bandit state of Israel.

Will we learn from the lessons of the past or will we once again find ourselves forced into war for the benefit of World Jewry?







The latest installment of the best-selling video game franchise “Call of Duty” will depict the Holocaust.

“We didn’t want to shy away from history. We wanted to be very respectful of it,” the game’s senior creative director, Bret Robbins, said in an interview with Mashable last week. “Some very, very dark things happened during this conflict and it felt wrong for us to ignore that.”

In “Call of Duty: WWII,” which will be released in November, the player controls an American soldier fighting in the European theater. In addition to shooting Nazi soldiers, players will also be exposed to racism towards Jews and African-Americans within their platoon. Robbins alluded to an episode of the miniseries “Band of Brothers” where American soldiers discovered a concentration camp.

“We absolutely show atrocities,” Robbins said. “It’s an unfortunate part of the history, but…you can’t tell an authentic, truthful story without going there. So we went there.”

Robbins argued that audiences can now handle games with more maturity and nuance: “People are ready for it. They want it,” he said.

“Call of Duty: WWII” will also feature a mode that turns the Nazi soldiers into zombies.







Further Isolating Trump, UN Watchdog Reaffirms Iran’s Compliance With Nuke Deal

As the Trump administration continues to jeopardize the deal, the United Nations nuclear watchdog reiterated Sunday that Iran is complying with its commitments made in the 2015 nuclear accord.

International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Yukiya Amano made the remarks in Tehran, where he met with high-level officials including Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Amano echoed the statement on Monday in Abu Dhabi, where a U.N. conference on nuclear energy is taking place. He said, “The IAEA can state that such nuclear-related commitments are being implemented.”

“I requested that Iran … fully implement the nuclear-related commitments. This (was) the main thrust of the meeting in Iran … Regarding the activities of our inspectors, they are discharging their responsibility without problem,” Amano said.

Al Jazeera describes Amano’s latest “verification of compliance” as “a moment of vindication for Iran and another international rebuke of the White House.”


Rouhani, for his part, said Sunday, “We should not allow the (nuclear deal), as an important achievement, to be undermined, and we must consolidate this important international commitment with full cooperation.”

Roughly two weeks ago, President Donald Trump decertified the deal, punting the issue to the Republican-controlled Congress and sparking warnings that the move was “a recipe for disaster.”

As Reuters previously noted, “none of the other signatories to the deal—Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China, Iran, and the European Union—have cited serious concerns, leaving the United States isolated.”

The administration’s apparent position is also out of step with the American public’s. A CNN poll this month revealed that two-thirds of Americans are opposed to the U.S. ditching the deal.

A screen grab from footage released on October 30, 2017 showing an ambulance leaving the scene of an Israeli airstrike on a lifeline tunnel in the Gaza Strip.

Iran has slammed the Tel Aviv regime’s latest attack on the Gaza Strip, which claimed the lives of eight people and injured many more.

“The blood thirsty Zionist regime mistakenly thinks that by killing Palestinian youths it can break their will,” said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi on Monday.

He added that seven decades of such atrocities have not been able to curb the will and resolve of the Palestinian people.

Earlier in the day, Israeli war planes bombarded and destroyed a lifeline tunnel in the southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Among the victims were two senior commanders of al-Quds Brigades, which is the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement.

The tunnel, which was still under construction, reportedly belonged to Hamas resistance movement and infiltrated into the heart of the occupied Palestinian territories.

A new war against Gaza

Meanwhile, the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has criticized the incident as an attempt to undermine the reconciliation talks between the Palestinian factions.

The movement also stressed that the Israeli attack constituted a new war against the people of Gaza.

The Gaza Strip has been under an Israeli siege since June 2007. Since then, the Israeli regime has launched three devastating wars on the coastal strip.

The latest military offensive against the territory in 2014, left nearly 2,200 Palestinians dead, including 577 children, over 11,100 others wounded and thousands of homes destroyed.

The blockade has caused a decline in the standards of living as well as unprecedented levels of unemployment and unrelenting poverty.

The Israeli regime denies about 1.8 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs with proper wages as well as adequate healthcare and education.

UK PM: Israel is a ‘remarkable country’

British Prime Minister Theresa May celebrated the Balfour Declaration at a dinner held on Wednesday to welcome the Jewish New Year, crediting it for creating the “remarkable country of Israel”, according to Ynet News.

The dinner, held at the British Prime Minister’s official residence at 10 Downing Street, was attended by senior politicians and members of the Jewish community in the UK.

“We look forward to [marking] the centenary of the Balfour Declaration in November,” she opened.

“Born of that letter, the pen of Balfour, and of the efforts of so many people, is a remarkable country.”

May also reinforced her support of the Zionist nation, stating:

As Prime Minister, I am proud to say that I support Israel. And it is absolutely right that we should mark the vital role that Britain played a century ago in helping to create a homeland for the Jewish people.

As the Balfour Declaration surpasses its 100th year, human rights activists have reiterated calls for Britain to acknowledge the role it played in creating the Israeli state and facilitating the ongoing occupation of Palestine.

Last year, the Palestinian Authority called for the UK government to apologise for the declaration, and sought to sue the UK for causing irreparable damage to the Palestinian people. Such calls have been largely ignored by British politicians who have instead reinforced their support of Israel.

Earlier this week, British Cabinet member Sajid Javid announced at the World Jewish Congress that the UK would celebrate the upcoming anniversary with pride.

“Someone said we should apologise for the Declaration, to say it was an error of judgment. Of course that’s not going to happen.”

To apologise for the Balfour Declaration would be to apologise for the existence of Israel and to question its right to exist

he said.

He continued to emphasise the current UK government’s intolerance towards any kind of boycott of Israel and outlined the steps that have been taken to counter peaceful opposition of Israel.

“I’ll be 100 per cent clear. I do not support calls for a boycott, my party does not support calls for a boycott. For all its bluster, the BDS campaign is most notable I think, for its lack of success.”

“As long as I’m in government, as long as I’m in politics, I will do everything in my power to fight back against those who seek to undermine Israel,” he concluded.

The UK has maintained close diplomatic, trade and security ties with Israel since its inception, and is counted upon by Israel to vote in its favour at the UN and other international institutions.

Inside the ruins of Gaza’s airport: Photographs show how transport hub named in honour of Yasser Arafat and that was open for just three years has been destroyed by neglect and war

  • Yasser Arafat International Airport was built in Rafah in 1998 with millions of dollars in foreign grants
  • Egypt, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Germany and other European Union countries all contributed 
  • But when violence re-ignited, Israel bombed the control tower, the runway and the elegant terminal
  • The airport has lain in ruins since, but has been one of the negotiation points in the truce talks that failed

Lying in ruins in the desert after years of neglect and war, this is the airport that never took off.

Gaza’s window to the world, Yasser Arafat International Airport, was built in the southern city of Rafah in 1998 with millions of dollars in foreign grants.

Egypt, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Germany and other European Union countries all contributed, with Moroccan architects designing the buildings’ mosaic walls.

And when it did, Gazans were euphoric, gathering at its gates in the thousands to watch the first Palestinian Airlines flight land. Tens of thousands of passengers used it.

But within three years it was closed.

When violence re-ignited, Israel bombed the control tower, then the runway, and finally the elegant Moroccan-designed terminal. The airport became unusable.

For years, Palestinian leadership continued to push for the airport’s re-opening, emphasising economic loss from its closure.

But Israeli officials cited security concerns, and argued that the airport only benefitted high-flying diplomats and VIPs, offering no contribution to the larger Palestinian economy.

Gazans who can afford it have to travel through checkpoints and border crossings, sometimes for days, to get to airports in Israel, Jordan and Egypt.

However, this month the stricken airport was one of the negotiation points in the truce talks that failed in Cairo.

Trump and Netanyahu Kiss on Bethlehem Wall

Published 29 October 2017
”The wall is a message in itself,“ the artist who said he painted the mural overnight, told Reuters.

The Israeli Prime Minister, Netanyahu and the U.S. President, Trump, are seen kissing in a mural on the Bethlehem wall. The mural was painted by a Melbourne-based artist, Lushsux, who hopes to draw the attention of the Palestinian people who are in “an indoor prison.”

The mural is seen with the bubble quotes, with Netanyahu saying, “Thanks for the wall Trumpy Pumpkin” and Trump responding, ” BeBe, Your country and you will always come first, my love…”

”The wall is a message in itself,“ the artist who said he painted the mural overnight, told Reuters.

“I don’t need to write ‘Free Palestine’ or something like that, something really direct … that people will ignore,” he added.

Lushsux gained prominence after some of his provocative art became viral last year. In 2016,  two of his works, where he painted half naked U.S. figures, Hillary Clinton and Melania Trump, went viral, after which Instagram shut his account for a time. The artist went public criticizing the medium.

The artist has done a number of Donald Trump murals in Melbourne. In one such mural, he depicted Trump and Hillary kissing, captioning it as “When you’re both pieces of sh** but it works.”

The Bethlehem wall has increasingly become known for protest art where a lot of the work showcases Palestinians’ fears that Israel’s West Bank barrier is a land grab which may deny them a state.

Earlier this year, renowned British political artist, Banksy also opened the “Walled Off hotel” overlooking the wall.

Banksy said the hotel has the “worst view in the world.”


Palestinians to send 100,000 letters to UK PM denouncing Balfour Declaration

Marking the centennial anniversary of Balfour Declaration, Palestinian Authority (PA) Education Minister Sabri Saidam yesterday reiterated that the department rejects all forms of obliteration and oppression being practiced against Palestinians and renewed its support for the campaign “Yes to the declaration, not to the promise”.

In a press conference to announce the launch of a series of activities in rejection of the Balfour Declaration, Saidam announced that Palestinian secondary students would write 100,000 letters in different languages to be sent to UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

These letters, he said, include one message, “Stop your oppression” represented in the British support for the Balfour Declaration and its consequences, which is the creation of the Israeli state at the expense of the Palestinian people.

According to Saidam, the letters are to be handed over to the British consulate in Jerusalem tomorrow.

JFK Files: Cover-Up Continues of President’s Assassination

  Admin   Other Writers

28 October 2017

This recent 3700-word article on the Kennedy assassination comes highly recommended to us by Paul Craig Roberts. Files have been released that reveal that there has been a cover-up for the last 54 years. How do these new revelations impact on us today and what do they tell us about the hidden puppet masters who run America?

November 22, 1963

Who killed the President — and why?

“The release this week of secret government papers on the killing of President Kennedy was billed as a day of revelation and reckoning. Closer to the truth is that the shocking murder of Kennedy continues to be covered-up by the US deep state.” — Finian Cunningham 

The murder of President John F Kennedy 54 years ago has been described as the “crime of the century”. If US and Western news media cannot discuss this seminal event openly and honestly, let alone investigate it, then what does that say about their credibility?

Such systematic media denial of reality inflicts irreparable damage to their credibility. How can they be taken seriously on any other matter, whether it is claims of “Russian meddling” or about the war in Syria, or the claims justifying Washington’s aggression towards Iran and North Korea?

The astounding media denial over JFK’s assassination is a symptom of the tacit totalitarianism that passes for “Western democracy”.

The release this week of secret government papers on the killing of President Kennedy was billed as a day of revelation and reckoning. Closer to the truth is that the shocking murder of Kennedy continues to be covered-up by the US deep state.

The premise of “revelation and reckoning” is absurdly false and naive. The notion that US authorities would “finally come clean” on what happened that day in Dallas is not only flawed. It also creates the illusion that the controversy has finally been settled, thereby supposedly confirming the official version that Kennedy was assassinated by a lone malcontent, Lee Harvey Oswald.

CNN reported the release of official documents this week thus: “More than 50 years after President John F Kennedy was killed, Americans on Thursday may finally get the US government’s full accounting… to quell conspiracy theories that have long swirled around the assassination.”

The New York Times wrote: “The final trove of sealed government records to be released” will lay to rest the “grand-daddy of all conspiracy theories”.

The evidence and truth about Kennedy’s slaying in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, on November 22, 1963, is already out there in the testimony of dozens of eye witnesses who observed the assassination or who were present in the aftermath. The assumption that the release of secret archives could shed any light is misplaced. But the media depiction of a “final trove” of documents conveniently shores up the official account that any other explanation of what really happened is that of a “conspiracy crank”.

CNN and the New York Times, as with the rest of the mainstream media in the US, claim that the release of declassified papers this week confirms the official narrative that JFK was shot dead by Lee Harvey Oswald firing a sniper rifle from the sixth floor of the Texas Book Store Depository at the president’s motorcade. That was the original conclusion from the government-led Warren Commission, which published its report on the assassination in 1964. For over 50 years, the US media have unswervingly maintained that version of events, despite abundant evidence to the contrary.

What the media have studiously ignored for all these years is the evidence and testimony from dozens of witnesses who were either excluded from the Warren Commission hearings, or their testimonies were distorted by FBI investigators. Many of them mysteriously killed.

One of the best compendiums on the Kennedy assassination is ‘JFK and the Unspeakable’ by James Douglass (2008). Other essential titles for details on the murder – details which mainstream media largely ignore – include ‘Crossfire’ by Jim Marrs, and ‘Brothers’ by David Talbot.

Among the many crucial witnesses recorded over the years, here below are a select few. Their testimonies show that the murder of Kennedy was a much darker “crime of the century” than the mainstream media would ever explore.

Shot from the front, not from the back

Doctor Charles Crenshaw led the medical staff at Dallas Parkland Hospital where the fatally wounded JFK was rushed to minutes after being shot. Crenshaw and nearly 20 other medical staff tended to the president’s wounds trying to resuscitate him. All of these medics testified that Kennedy’s fatal head wound was from a gun shot to the front of the skull which resulted in a massive exit hole at the back of his head. That one detail alone contradicts the official claim that Oswald allegedly shot JFK from the rear, as the Warren Commission contends.

The fatal shot must have come from the front, which the famous amateur video footage recorded by bystander Abraham Zapruder near the Grassy Knoll also purports to show. (Notably, a Congressional panel, the House Select Committee on Assassinations, concluded in 1979 after a reexamination of evidence that there was more than one shooter in Dealey Plaza. But this finding has never been thoroughly explored by the media. Why not?)

Critically important, Dr Crenshaw and his medical colleagues were immediately pressured by the FBI and other authorities to suppress their initial observations. They were tacitly intimidated to change their accounts to say the opposite: that the president’s head wound was caused by a shot from the rear. Crenshaw was not invited to testify before the Warren Commission during its year-long hearings. He says for years after, he and Parkland staff were subtly intimidated to keep quiet about their witness to Kennedy’s final moments. However, three decades later, in 1992, Dr Crenshaw published ‘JFK and the Conspiracy of Silence’. Ironically, it became a best-seller on the New York Times book list, in spite a huge media campaign to discredit Crenshaw’s medical expertise.

Lieutenant Commander William Bruce Pitzer was in charge of the Audio-Visual Department at Bethesda Naval Hospital in Washington DC where Kennedy’s remains were flown hours after the shooting. That was where the official autopsy was carried out, bizarrely, under the watchful eye of senior military personnel. Pitzer was tasked with filming the remains of the president. As he later confided to a colleague, who corroborated the film’s images, JFK’s head had a massive exit wound at the back of the skull, just as the Dallas doctors had initially maintained. Two years later, Pitzer was mysteriously found dead in his studio. He had been shot in the head, a revolver nearby. His death was officially said to be suicide, which his widow disputed. The film of the president’s remains, which Pitzer had been carefully storing, was removed from his studio by an unknown person.

The contention that Kennedy was shot from the front is not a theory. The direction of fire was witnessed by several people who were near the Grassy Knoll, the stockade-fence area which JFK’s limousine was approaching as it drove away from the Texas Book Store Depository, further up on Elm Street. If Oswald was the shooter from the depository, as the official narrative goes, then how could Kennedy have been shot fatally from the front?

Secret Service men at Grassy Knoll

Ed Hoffman, a young deaf and mute man, was watching the approaching motorcade from the flyover overlooking the knoll. Hoffman says he saw a puff of smoke emitting from where a gunman was standing against the stockade fence just as the president’s car was approaching. The shooter then quickly moved to rail lines behind the knoll where he threw his rifle to another man dressed in work overalls. The second man disassembled the rifle in a twist, shoved it into a holdall bag and proceeded to walk along the rail track away from the knoll. The shooter then swiftly walked back to the stockade fence. Several police officers on duty that day, who immediately ran towards the knoll on hearing the gunfire, reported that they were confronted by men purporting to be secret service agents. Ed Hoffman’s testimony was ignored by FBI investigators when he voluntarily came forward. But his account was verified by a railroad operator named Lee Bowers who also observed the shooting from the Grassy Knoll from the vantage point of a control tower he happened to be working in. Bowers testified his observation to respected JFK researcher and author Mark Lane. Four months later, in 1966, Bowers was killed in a single-car accident. This fate of untimely death has met several other people who spoke out about circumstances of the shooting which did not fit with the Warren Commission narrative.

Another witness on the Grassy Knoll was a young off-duty soldier, Gordon Arnold. Years later after mustering the courage, he testified that he felt the discharge of two shots fired from close behind while he was taking photos of the passing motorcade. Gordon said he ducked for cover, and before he knew it, two men lit on him, one holding a rifle and dressed in a police uniform, who demanded he empty his camera of its film. Arnold kept silent about his story for years out of fear for his life.

Jack Ruby was not a random killer of Oswald

Many serious independent investigators have disputed the Warren Commission report as being riddled with anomalies, apart from its exclusion of key witnesses.

One of the glaring flaws in the Warren findings is that Lee Harvey Oswald purportedly acted alone, and that he had no connection to Jack Ruby, the Mob-connected nightclub owner who shot dead Oswald while in custody in the Dallas police station – two days after Kennedy was killed.

Rose Cheramie worked in Ruby’s Dallas club. Before her death in a bizarre road accident in 1965, Cheramie claimed that Ruby and Oswald knew each other for years. She said Oswald would often call round to the club where he would sit at Ruby’s table.

Julia Ann Mercer was stuck in traffic in Dealey Plaza on the morning of the assassination, at 11am, an hour and a half before the president’s motorcade arrived. She noticed a man getting out of a station wagon parked below the Grassy Knoll and that this man was carrying what appeared to be a concealed rifle as he proceeded to walk up to the stockade-fence area. Out of curiosity, Mercer then rolled her car alongside the parked vehicle and took a look at the driver squarely in the face. It was Jack Ruby. She didn’t know Ruby at that time. Only days later when his infamous shooting of Oswald at the police station made international headlines did Mercer recognize Ruby’s face. Her testimony was distorted by FBI investigators. It was only when Mercer later talked to various independent researchers that her crucial identification of Ruby at the scene came to light, albeit not in a mass media light.

Other witnesses further substantiate the real conspiracy that lies behind JFK’s assassination. The word “conspiracy” is not used here in the pejorative sense to demean. It conveys the literal meaning of an organized plot.

What was that plot? As James Douglass and others have cogently pieced together, after his election in 1960 JFK was increasingly viewed by the US deep state as a “rogue president”. He was firmly opposed to the unfurling arms race against the Soviet Union and wanted to pursue earnest, radical nuclear disarmament with Russian leader Nikita Khrushchev. The Cuban missile crisis of 1962 had jolted JFK on the dangers of a nuclear world war. Kennedy also wanted to normalize relations with Cuba’s Fidel Castro following the disastrous CIA-led Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961 for which the president vowed he would “smash the agency into a thousand pieces”. He fired the CIA director Allen Dulles over the fiasco. Ironically, Dulles would later be appointed to the seven-member Warren Commission, supposedly tasked with uncovering the truth behind Kennedy’s assassination.

Moreover, JFK had concluded that the looming Vietnam War would be a disaster. In the summer of 1963 he was preparing orders for US military withdrawal. That move was a formidable threat to the anticipated huge profits for the military industrial complex if the war escalated, which it did after Kennedy’s death.

At the height of the Cold War, Kennedy was therefore seen as little more than a traitor by the military-security apparatus and as an obstacle to the vested economic interests of the Pentagon’s military-industrial complex. In short, he had to be got rid of by “executive action”.

The CIA had the motive to terminate Kennedy. It also had the means. CIA contract-killers were often drawn from the ranks of criminal underworld, the Mafia and far-right Cuban exiles living in Miami. This arrangement affords “plausible deniability”.

Jack Ruby, who had long been a Mafia, CIA gun-runner and fixer, was recruited into the months-long planning of the plot to ambush the president.

Oswald the CIA agent who became a scapegoat

So, what was Oswald’s connection?

The 23-year-old ex-US marine had been recruited in the late 1950s by the CIA when he was posted to a U2 spy plane base in Japan. He became fluent in Russian and then “defected” to the Soviet Union. It seems that the KGB did not take Oswald seriously as a reliable would-be agent. He then returned to the US in 1962, apparently of his own volition. Significantly, for an American citizen who had renounced his country and defected to the Soviet Union, Oswald and his Russian wife were not subjected to any recriminations on their return to the US. Indeed, it seems they were given generous patronage to find accommodation, jobs, and connections.

Oswald, who became immersed in both pro- and anti-Castro Cuban political activities in the US, became embroiled in the plot to assassinate Kennedy. How much Oswald knew of CIA involvement or the agency’s true objectives is not clear. But evidence suggests that he was also working as an informer for the FBI to alert them of the plot to kill the president. Oswald was out of his depth. He probably didn’t realize how little a pawn he was in a much bigger nefarious plot.

His close involvement with the bit-player plotters explains how he was an associate of Jack Ruby. What Oswald’s true intentions are not clear. Tragically, he may have had a misplaced belief that his role as an informant for the FBI was trying to save the president.

In the end, tragically, Oswald was made the scapegoat for the assassination. The claim that he fired a rifle from the Texas School Book Depository with three shots in a matter of seconds and hit the president twice – as the Warren Commission contends – defies credibility. Also, according to the Warren report, one of those bullets supposedly exited Kennedy’s neck and then struck Governor John Connally who was riding in front of the Limousine. Dr Crenshaw and the other doctors at Parkland Hospital initially said that the wound on Kennedy’s neck (in addition to the fatal head injury) was an entry wound – another pointer that shots were actually fired from the front, not from the back as the Warren Commission maintains. That’s not to say shots were not fired from the depository. Witnesses say they heard gunfire and saw a gunman in the upper window. But that speaks more to the elaborate CIA plot to frame Oswald, who happened to recently become employed at the depository weeks before Kennedy’s visit to Dallas.

Less than an hour after the president was shot, Oswald hurriedly entered a movie theater. Witness Jack Davis said he noticed Oswald acting strangely, sitting beside individuals, then restlessly getting up and sitting down again beside another moviegoer – this in an almost empty theater! “It was obvious he was looking for someone,” recalled Davis. It is reasonable to speculate Oswald was seeking out a FBI contact whom he was instructed to connect with in a faux-arrangement. Oswald never did meet his “contact”. He was being left out to hang and dry by the plotters.

Another movie-theater customer, George Applin, told how when police officers arrested Oswald, Applin kindly advised another seated man to move to the back of the cinema hall, away from the trouble. The man nonchalantly looked at Applin, ignored his advice, kept sitting in his seat, and then proceeded to intently observe the arrest of Oswald. Days later, Applin recognized the face of Jack Ruby as being that of the man in the cinema hall. Evidently, Ruby had expected the police officers to shoot Oswald on the spot at his arrest, especially because their colleague Officer JD Tippit had just been shot dead minutes before – supposedly by Oswald fleeing from the assassination of the president. As it turned out, the arresting officers did not kill Oswald in the movie-theater, and it would fall to Ruby to follow-up two days later at the Dallas police station.

There are many other such key witnesses to the events surrounding the assassination of JFK, recorded in the reference books cited above, among other sources. All these witnesses were ignored by the mainstream media, or excluded and distorted by the Warren Commission, or were intimidated from speaking out publicly.

State-level organization of assassination

One further crucial story is that of Air Force Sergeant Robert Vinson. On the Friday of the assassination, through sheer happenstance, he caught an unscheduled ride onboard an unmarked C-54 military cargo plane, making his way back from Washington DC to his home near Colorado Springs. During the flight in which he was the only passenger, the pilots announced the president’s death. The plane then banked to another unspoken destination. When it landed on a rough strip, Sgt. Vinson recognized the city’s skyline as Dallas. It was mid-afternoon. During the brief stop, the plane’s engines did not shut off. Two men boarded. The aircraft then took off, landing eventually at the air base at Roswell, New Mexico. It was only when Vinson finally got home on Sunday, watching the breaking news on the TV with his wife, that he recognized the face of the man accused of being the president’s assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. It was the same facial appearance as one of the two men who boarded at Dallas.

Vinson’s experience confirms what many other witnesses have contended. That in the plot to kill JFK and frame Oswald, there was an Oswald double, an imposter whose task was to incriminate the scapegoat. The double was used to lay down a trail of evidence purporting to frame Oswald as a Cuban or Soviet malcontent. This would explain the strange encounters at the Cuban and Soviet embassies in Mexico City only weeks before the Dallas assassination. During those encounters, the Oswald imposter dramatically proclaimed his communist allegiance. Significantly, the Soviet records show that the person claiming to be Oswald spoke very bad Russian, whereas it is known that the real Oswald was fluent in the language.

For years, Sgt. Vinson was subtly intimidated by the CIA to keep quiet about his accidental flight onboard the unmarked cargo plane. However, Vinson did come forward years later to tell researchers of his insights into the plot to kill Kennedy. He also testified that the plane he rode on was not entirely unmarked. On the tail section, the aircraft bore the insignia of the CIA.

But perhaps the absolute key witness in all this was Lee Harvey Oswald himself. His last words shouted out in defiance at the Dallas police station were: “I’m just a patsy!”

Conveniently, Oswald was silenced by the Mob, CIA-connected Jack Ruby before he could tell his side of the story in a court of law. Oswald no doubt could have lifted a very disturbing lid on who really was orchestrating the president’s assassination.

Regime change American-style

The story of JFK’s assassination is one of state-sponsored murder carried out by the deep state power structure in the US. It was a coup d’état against a president elected by the people, whom the deep state viewed as an enemy to their objectives for war and foreign intrigues.

It was a shocking, brutal blow against democracy, a “regime change”, delivered not in some distant country, but right at home in the United States.

Such was the elaborate conspiracy to murder the president, involving contract-killers and secret services, as well as the complicity of police forces, the FBI, the military, judiciary and the corporate media, that the plotters behind JFK’s killing had to be positioned at the highest level of US government – the deep state.

Nearly 54 years after Kennedy’s murder by America’s state apparatus, the cover-up continues in the form of a futile release of “secret papers”. And, suitably, the mainstream media declare that this “disclosure” is the final settling of the matter, which puts an end to “conspiracy theories”.

The media’s complicity may simply be due to an inability or reluctance to question the official narrative. This is what we mean by “tacit totalitarianism” – a willingness to believe in indoctrinated thinking, such as the false Warren Commission conclusion.

No wonder the US public – which polls have consistently shown do not believe the official Warren Commission narrative, and who indeed believe instead that JFK was actually killed in a nefarious plot – no wonder the public have increasing distrust and contempt for the corporate media for being dishonest and unreliable.

For the past year, the same media have been trying to slander Russia for interfering in US democracy. The same media have also tried to conceal American state-sponsored terrorism in Syria to overthrow the government there, just like it did when it overthrew the government in Libya in 2011 and killed the country’s leader Muammar Gaddafi. And many other illegal regime-change operations carried out by the US and its Western allies, presented as noble endeavors to “defend democracy”, “fight terrorism” or “protect human rights”.

In an era when such commercially-driven mass media pontificate about “fake news” perpetrated by others it is all the more galling that the accusation comes from the very same media who specialize in mass fake news and mass fake narratives.

The US state murder of JFK in 1963 and the decades-long cover-up is perhaps the greatest condemnation of the fraud that is US mass media. The day that the president was assassinated was also the day that American pretensions of democracy took a deadly hit.

The Deep State’s JFK Triumph Over Trump


Exclusive: Fifty-four years after President Kennedy’s assassination, the CIA and FBI demanded more time to decide what secrets to keep hiding – and a chastened President Trump bowed to their power, observes ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern.

By Ray McGovern

It was summer 1963 when a senior official of CIA’s operations directorate treated our Junior Officer Trainee (JOT) class to an unbridled rant against President John F. Kennedy. He accused JFK, among other things, of rank cowardice in refusing to send U.S. armed forces to bail out Cuban rebels pinned down during the CIA-launched invasion at the Bay of Pigs, blowing the chance to drive Cuba’s Communist leader Fidel Castro from power.

It seemed beyond odd that a CIA official would voice such scathing criticism of a sitting President at a training course for those selected to be CIA’s future leaders. I remember thinking to myself, “This guy is unhinged; he would kill Kennedy, given the chance.”

Our special guest lecturer looked a lot like E. Howard Hunt, but more than a half-century later, I cannot be sure it was he. Our notes from such training/indoctrination were classified and kept under lock and key.

At the end of our JOT orientation, we budding Agency leaders had to make a basic choice between joining the directorate for substantive analysis or the operations directorate where case officers run spies and organize regime changes (in those days, we just called the process overthrowing governments).

I chose the analysis directorate and, once ensconced in the brand new headquarters building in Langley, Virginia, I found it strange that subway-style turnstiles prevented analysts from going to the “operations side of the house,” and vice versa. Truth be told, we were never one happy family.

I cannot speak for my fellow analysts in the early 1960s, but it never entered my mind that operatives on the other side of the turnstiles might be capable of assassinating a President – the very President whose challenge to do something for our country had brought many of us to Washington in the first place. But, barring the emergence of a courageous whistleblower-patriot like Daniel Ellsberg, Chelsea Manning or Edward Snowden, I do not expect to live long enough to learn precisely who orchestrated and carried out the assassination of JFK.

And yet, in a sense, those particulars seem less important than two main lessons learned: (1) If a President can face down intense domestic pressure from the power elite and turn toward peace with perceived foreign enemies, then anything is possible. The darkness of Kennedy’s murder should not obscure the light of that basic truth; and (2) There is ample evidence pointing to a state execution of a President willing to take huge risks for peace. While no post-Kennedy president can ignore that harsh reality, it remains possible that a future President with the vision and courage of JFK might beat the odds – particularly as the American Empire disintegrates and domestic discontent grows.

I do hope to be around next April after the 180-day extension for release of the remaining JFK documents. But – absent a gutsy whistleblower – I wouldn’t be surprised to see in April, a Washington Post banner headline much like the one that appeared Saturday: “JFK files: The promise of revelations derailed by CIA, FBI.”

The New Delay Is the Story

You might have thought that almost 54 years after Kennedy was murdered in the streets of Dallas – and after knowing for a quarter century the supposedly final deadline for releasing the JFK files – the CIA and FBI would not have needed a six-month extension to decide what secrets that they still must hide.

Autopsy photo of President John F. Kennedy.

Journalist Caitlin Johnstone hits the nail on the head in pointing out that the biggest revelation from last week’s limited release of the JFK files is “the fact that the FBI and CIA still desperately need to keep secrets about something that happened 54 years ago.”

What was released on Oct. 26, was a tiny fraction of what had remained undisclosed in the National Archives. To find out why, one needs to have some appreciation of a 70-year-old American political tradition that might be called “fear of the spooks.”

That the CIA and FBI are still choosing what we should be allowed to see concerning who murdered John Kennedy may seem unusual, but there is hoary precedent for it.  After JFK’s assassination on Nov. 22, 1963, the well-connected Allen Dulles, whom Kennedy had fired as CIA director after the Bay of Pigs fiasco, got himself appointed to the Warren Commission and took the lead in shaping the investigation of JFK’s murder.

By becoming de facto head of the Commission, Dulles was perfectly placed to protect himself and his associates, if any commissioners or investigators were tempted to question whether Dulles and the CIA played any role in killing Kennedy. When a few independent-minded journalists did succumb to that temptation, they were immediately branded – you guessed it – “conspiracy theorists.”

And so, the big question remains: Did Allen Dulles and other “cloak-and-dagger” CIA operatives have a hand in John Kennedy’s assassination and subsequent cover-up? In my view and the view of many more knowledgeable investigators, the best dissection of the evidence on the murder appears in James Douglass’s 2008 book, JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters.

After updating and arraying the abundant evidence, and conducting still more interviews, Douglass concludes that the answer to the big question is Yes. Reading Douglass’s book today may help explain why so many records are still withheld from release, even in redacted form, and why, indeed, we may never see them in their entirety.

Truman: CIA a Frankenstein?

When Kennedy was assassinated, it must have occurred to former President Harry Truman, as it did to many others, that the disgraced Allen Dulles and his associates might have conspired to get rid of a President they felt was soft on Communism – and dismissive of the Deep State of that time. Not to mention their vengeful desire to retaliate for Kennedy’s response to the Bay of Pigs fiasco. (Firing Allen Dulles and other CIA paragons of the Deep State for that fiasco simply was not done.)

CIA Director Allen Dulles

Exactly one month after John Kennedy was killed, the Washington Post published an op-ed by Harry Truman titled “Limit CIA Role to Intelligence.” The first sentence read, “I think it has become necessary to take another look at the purpose and operations of our Central Intelligence Agency.”

Strangely, the op-ed appeared only in the Post’s early edition on Dec. 22, 1963. It was excised from that day’s later editions and, despite being authored by the President who was responsible for setting up the CIA in 1947, the all-too-relevant op-ed was ignored in all other major media.

Truman clearly believed that the spy agency had lurched off in what Truman thought were troubling directions. He began his op-ed by underscoring “the original reason why I thought it necessary to organize this Agency … and what I expected it to do.” It would be “charged with the collection of all intelligence reports from every available source, and to have those reports reach me as President without Department ‘treatment’ or interpretations.”

Truman then moved quickly to one of the main things clearly bothering him. He wrote “the most important thing was to guard against the chance of intelligence being used to influence or to lead the President into unwise decisions.”

It was not difficult to see this as a reference to how one of the agency’s early directors, Allen Dulles, tried to trick President Kennedy into sending U.S. forces to rescue the group of invaders who had landed on the beach at the Bay of Pigs in April 1961 with no chance of success, absent the speedy commitment of U.S. air and ground support. The planned mouse-trapping of the then-novice President Kennedy had been underpinned by a rosy “analysis” showing how this pin-prick on the beach would lead to a popular uprising against Fidel Castro.

Wallowing in the Bay of Pigs

Arch-Establishment figure Allen Dulles was offended when young President Kennedy, on entering office, had the temerity to question the CIA’s Bay of Pigs plans, which had been set in motion under President Dwight Eisenhower. When Kennedy made it clear he would notapprove the use of U.S. combat forces, Dulles set out, with supreme confidence, to give the President no choice except to send U.S. troops to the rescue.

Coffee-stained notes handwritten by Allen Dulles were discovered after his death and reported by historian Lucien S. Vandenbroucke. In his notes, Dulles explained that, “when the chips were down,” Kennedy would be forced by “the realities of the situation” to give whatever military support was necessary “rather than permit the enterprise to fail.”

The “enterprise” which Dulles said could not fail was, of course, the overthrow of Fidel Castro. After mounting several failed operations to assassinate Castro, this time Dulles meant to get his man, with little or no attention to how Castro’s patrons in Moscow might react eventually. (The next year, the Soviets agreed to install nuclear missiles in Cuba as a deterrent to future U.S. aggression, leading to the Cuban Missile Crisis).

In 1961, the reckless Joint Chiefs of Staff, whom then-Deputy Secretary of State George Ball later described as a “sewer of deceit,” relished any chance to confront the Soviet Union and give it, at least, a black eye. (One can still smell the odor from that sewer in many of the documents released last week.)

But Kennedy stuck to his guns, so to speak. A few months after the abortive invasion of Cuba — and his refusal to send the U.S. military to the rescue — Kennedy fired Dulles and his co-conspirators and told a friend that he wanted to “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds.” Clearly, the outrage was mutual.

When JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters came out, the mainstream media had an allergic reaction and gave it almost no reviews. It is a safe bet, though, that Barack Obama was given a copy and that this might account in some degree for his continual deference – timorousness even – toward the CIA.

Could fear of the Deep State be largely why President Obama felt he had to leave the Cheney/Bush-anointed CIA torturers, kidnappers and black-prison wardens in place, instructing his first CIA chief, Leon Panetta, to become, in effect, the agency’s lawyer rather than take charge? Is this why Obama felt he could not fire his clumsily devious Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who had to apologize to Congress for giving “clearly erroneous” testimony under oath in March 2013? Does Obama’s fear account for his allowing then-National Security Agency Director Keith Alexander and counterparts in the FBI to continue to mislead the American people, even though the documents released by Edward Snowden showed them – as well as Clapper – to be lying about the government’s surveillance activities?

Is this why Obama fought tooth and nail to protect CIA Director John Brennan by trying to thwart publication of the comprehensive Senate Intelligence Committee investigation of CIA torture, which was based on original Agency cables, emails, and headquarters memos? [See here and here.]

The Deep State Today

Many Americans cling to a comforting conviction that the Deep State is a fiction, at least in a “democracy” like the United States. References to the enduring powers of the security agencies and other key bureaucracies have been essentially banned by the mainstream media, which many other suspicious Americans have come to see as just one more appendage of the Deep State.

Sen. Charles Schumer, (D-N.Y)

But occasionally the reality of how power works pokes through in some unguarded remark by a Washington insider, someone like Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-New York, the Senate Minority Leader with 36 years of experience in Congress. As Senate Minority Leader, he also is an ex officio member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is supposed to oversee the intelligence agencies.

During a Jan. 3, 2017 interview with MSNBC’S Rachel Maddow, Schumer told Maddow nonchalantly about the dangers awaiting President-elect Donald Trump if he kept on “taking on the intelligence community.” She and Schumer were discussing Trump’s sharp tweeting regarding U.S. intelligence and evidence of “Russian hacking” (which both Schumer and Maddow treat as flat fact).

Schumer said: “Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.  So even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this.”

Three days after that interview, President Obama’s intelligence chiefs released a nearly evidence-free “assessment” claiming that the Kremlin engaged in a covert operation to put Trump into office, fueling a “scandal” that has hobbled Trump’s presidency. On Monday, Russia-gate special prosecutor Robert Mueller indicted Trump’s one-time campaign manager Paul Manafort on unrelated money laundering, tax and foreign lobbying charges, apparently in the hope that Manafort will provide incriminating evidence against Trump.

So, President Trump has been in office long enough to have learned how the game is played and the “six ways from Sunday” that the intelligence community has for “getting back at you.” He appears to be as intimidated as was President Obama.

Trump’s awkward acquiescence in the Deep State’s last-minute foot-dragging regarding release of the JFK files is simply the most recent sign that he, too, is under the thumb of what the Soviets used to call “the organs of state security.”

Trump and Iran. “President Trump is Willing to Pursue a Path of Aggression

United States President Donald Trump is attempting to set the scene for attacking Iran by continuing with his pre-election mantra of the “bad deal”. Since his assumption of office, he has continually referred to the Iranian state as a “sponsor of terrorism” and has also made his designs clear by referring to Hezbollah, Iran’s ally in Lebanon, as a terrorist organisation responsible for the massacre of American troops in Lebanon in 1983. His decision not to re-certify the ‘Five Plus One’ Agreement is pivoting America towards an armed confrontation with Iran.

  1. Ratcheting tensions with Iran is an unmistakable attempt aimed at setting up the United States to fight a war on behalf of Israel, and, it would be remiss not to note, Saudi Arabia, a country with which Israel has developed a symbiotic relationship. Iran has not invaded another country for around 200 years, is a signatory nation to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty with attendant inspections and in addition to this has consented to the multinational ‘Five Plus One’ Agreement. It is also useful to remind that the intelligence community of the United States and even Israel’s Mossad have concluded that Iran has no military objectives related to the acquisition of nuclear power. The Iranian leadership debated this and decided as long ago as the early or mid-2000s not to pursue the nuclear option.

It is a manufactured crisis.

By inflicting the first defeat in recent memory on the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), former President Barack Obama resisted the Israel-Jewish lobby’s insistence on using the United States to mount a military attack on Iran by reaching the ‘Five Plus One’ agreement. This came after a concerted effort by Binyamin Netanyahu to undermine Obama’s position by accepting an invitation from Republican members of congress to speak before America’s legislative body without the express approval of the serving president, an abrogation of established US constitutional convention.

  1. Donald Trump recently tweeted a reminder of Hezbollah’s alleged responsibility for murdering US Marines in Lebanon back in 1983. Vice President Mike Pence joined in, but neither man mentioned any other atrocity allegedly instigated by Hezbollah since the period of time when Lebanese militias were resisting what they perceived as the occupation of their country by foreign military powers. The problem with this focus on Hezbollah as an instigator of terrorism is that most of the atrocities committed against the United States and other Western nations by Muslim organisations have been by those of the Sunni-Wahhabist stripe whose ideology emanates from America’s ally Saudi Arabia. These organisations have in fact been covertly used by the United States to harass, destabilise and overthrow America’s enemies in Chechnya (an anti-Russian endeavour), Syria and Libya.

While Trump and Pence invoke the name of Hezbollah in the killing of United States military personnel, neither man has ever publicly memorialised the American sailors who were deliberately murdered and maimed during an attack on the USS Liberty by the armed forces of the state of Israel in June 1967.

Both men will not acknowledge that Hezbollah was created out of the carnage that followed the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in the early 1980s, and that it was nurtured by the experience of combating Israel’s 18-year occupation of southern Lebanon.

By threatening to abrogate the multilateral treaty with Iran, it appears that Trump is doing the bidding of the Israel lobby which has had its intentions so far as achieving the destruction of Iran manifested in a number of position papers including many produced by the neoconservative-orientated and now defunct Project for the New American Century (PNAC).

Iran and Hezbollah were also targets proposed in a paper submitted in 1996 to Binyamin Netanyahu during his first tenure as Prime Minister of Israel. Led by the American neoconservative Richard Perle,A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm proposed “rolling back” the Syrian state, a crucial ally of Hezbollah, by proxy warfare.

Further, the “policy coup” referred to by retired US General Wesley Clark which Clark had learned of on two visits to the Pentagon in the immediate aftermath of the September 11 attacks, outlined a neoconservative strategy of taking out “seven countries in five years” including Syria, Lebanon (meaning Hezbollah) and Iran.

Apart from Sudan and Somalia, none of the targeted entities, including Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, shared the objectives of the Sunni extremist ideology that characterised the alleged instigators of the 9/11 attacks. Iraq and Syria were led by secular, nationalist governments with roots in the Baathist movement, Libya’s ruling Jamahiriya Party was also a secular government, while Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Iran represented bastions of the Shia Muslim world.

All had in common an implacable opposition to Israel.

Iran, Syria and Hezbollah in Lebanon together form the so-called ‘Shia Crescent’, an ‘arc of resistance’ which threatens Israel’s military domination of the Middle East. This alliance also elicits fear and concern from Saudi Arabia, the leader of the Sunni Muslim world, and a nation with which Israel has developed closer, albeit informal relations.

The grand design of neutralising Iran and its allies is one which has continued unabated over the course of three successive United States administrations spanning those of George W. Bush, Barack Obama and now Donald Trump. The foreign policy of Obama did not vary much from that of Bush except in regard to Obama favouring covert action rather than overt foreign invasions by the American armed forces. Thus, the Syrian insurrection of 2011 through which foreign Islamist mercenaries were allowed to infiltrate Syria’s borders with the aid of America’s allies in the region was a policy consistent with the overarching policy of weakening the Shia powers by attempting to isolate Hezbollah by destroying Syria, the conduit between Israel’s Lebanese enemy and Iran.

Hezbollah, which like Iran has participated in defending the Assad government,  is the only military force in the Arab world that is willing and capable of confronting Israel’s military machinery. It was responsible for Israel’s withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000 after an almost two-decade-long occupation and they effectively defeated Israel in duels in the intelligence sphere and on the battlefield in the Lebanon War of 2006.

Israel has for long wanted to extend its frontier to the River Litani because it covets the resource the river provides. But the reclaiming of swathes of Syrian territory from Sunni Islamist groups such as Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra by the Syrian Arab Army with the help of Russian air power, Iranian advisors and soldiers provided by Hezbollah has frustrated the plan to cut Hezbollah off from Iran. It frustrates Israel’s desired ability to act with impunity in Lebanon as well as achieving its goal of securing its illegal annexation of the Golan Heights on the basis that none of the successor statelets of a balkanised Syria would have a claim to that region.

Whereas President Obama refused to yield to Israeli pressure to sacrifice American lives in a military adventure against Iran, it appears that President Trump is willing to pursue a path of aggression.In a speech defending the nuclear deal he had reached prior to a congressional vote in 2015, Obama claimed that “many of the same people who argued for the war in Iraq are now making the case against the Iran nuclear deal.” This was a not very veiled attack on the pro-Israel groups led by AIPAC, which sent hundreds of activists to lobby lawmakers to reject the deal.

Obama’s claim, which he repeated on several occasions, led to expressions of concern by several American Jewish organisations that his rhetoric could lead to a backlash against American Jews who are sensitive to suggestions of warmongering or placing ties to Israel over the interests of the United States.

Yet it remains the case, as Obama put it, that the “choice we face is ultimately between diplomacy and some form of war”. The joint statement issued earlier this month by the leaders of Britain, France and Germany affirming their support for the deal together with the words of the European Union’s foreign policy chief asserting that the agreement was working well clearly demonstrate that Trump is working towards achieving a preconceived agenda.

That agenda is a war agenda and it would be a catastrophe for the US to wage war against Iran on Israel’s behalf.

The malign results of the invasion of Iraq and the proxy war in Syria are apparent to all.

In Shocking, Viral Interview, Qatar Confesses Secrets Behind Syrian War. Weapons to Al Qaeda First Started in 2011

A television interview of a top Qatari official confessing the truth behind the origins of the war in Syria is going viral across Arabic social media during the same week a leaked top secret NSA document was published which confirms that the armed opposition in Syria was under the direct command of foreign governments from the early years of the conflict.

And according to a well-known Syria analyst and economic adviser with close contacts in the Syrian government, the explosive interview constitutes a high level “public admission to collusion and coordination between four countries to destabilize an independent state, [including] possible support for Nusra/al-Qaeda.” Importantly, “this admission will help build case for what Damascus sees as an attack on its security & sovereignty. It will form basis for compensation claims.”

A 2013 London press conference: Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabr Al Thani with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. A 2014 Hillary Clinton email confirmed Qatar as a state-sponsor of ISIS during that same time period. 

As the war in Syria continues slowly winding down, it seems new source material comes out on an almost a weekly basis in the form of testimonials of top officials involved in destabilizing Syria, and even occasional leaked emails and documentswhich further detail covert regime change operations against the Assad government. Though much of this content serves to confirm what has already long been known by those who have never accepted the simplistic propaganda which has dominated mainstream media, details continue to fall in place, providing future historians with a clearer picture of the true nature of the war.

This process of clarity has been aided – as predicted – by the continued infighting among Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) former allies Saudi Arabia and Qatar, with each side accusing the other of funding Islamic State and al-Qaeda terrorists (ironically, both true). Increasingly, the world watches as more dirty laundry is aired and the GCC implodes after years of nearly all the gulf monarchies funding jihadist movements in places like Syria, Iraq, and Libya.

Since 2013 The Intercept (+WaPo?) hid NSA docs showing Saudi ordering ‘rebel’ attacks on Damascus. Now released. 

NSA Document Says Saudi Prince Directly Ordered Coordinated Attack By Syrian Rebels On Damascus

“Light up Damascus,” the Saudi prince told Syrian rebels, as they grew increasingly reliant on foreign support.

The top Qatari official is no less than former Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani, who oversaw Syria operations on behalf of Qatar until 2013 (also as foreign minister), and is seen below with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in this Jan. 2010 photo (as a reminder, Qatar’s 2022 World Cup Committee donated $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation in 2014).

In an interview with Qatari TV Wednesday, bin Jaber al-Thani revealed that his country, alongside Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the United States, began shipping weapons to jihadists from the very moment events “first started” (in 2011). 

Al-Thani even likened the covert operation to “hunting prey” – the prey being President Assadand his supporters – “prey” which he admits got away (as Assad is still in power; he used a Gulf Arabic dialect word, “al-sayda”, which implies hunting animals or prey for sport). Though Thani denied credible allegations of support for ISIS, the former prime minister’s words implied direct Gulf and US support for al-Qaeda in Syria (al-Nusra Front) from the earliest years of the war, and even said Qatar has “full documents” and records proving that the war was planned to effect regime change.

“We argued over the prey and that prey run away”.Ladies and Gentleman: To these people   was nothing but a f….ing hunting game 

According to Zero Hedge’s translation, al-Thani said while acknowledging Gulf nations were arming jihadists in Syria with the approval and support of US and Turkey:

“I don’t want to go into details but we have full documents about us taking charge [in Syria].”

He claimed that both Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah (who reigned until his death in 2015) and the United States placed Qatar in a lead role concerning covert operations to execute the proxy war.

The former prime minister’s comments, while very revealing, were intended as a defense and excuse of Qatar’s support for terrorism, and as a critique of the US and Saudi Arabia for essentially leaving Qatar “holding the bag” in terms of the war against Assad. Al-Thani explained that Qatar continued its financing of armed insurgents in Syria while other countries eventually wound down large-scale support, which is why he lashed out at the US and the Saudis, who initially “were with us in the same trench.”

In a previous US television interview which was vastly underreported, al-Thani told Charlie Rose when asked about allegations of Qatar’s support for terrorism that, “in Syria, everybody did mistakes, including your country.” And said that when the war began in Syria, “all of use worked through two operation rooms: one in Jordan and one in Turkey.”

Below is the key section of Wednesday’s interview, translated and subtitled by @Walid970721. Zero Hedge has reviewed and confirmed the translation, however, as the original rush translator has acknowledged, al-Thani doesn’t say “lady” but “prey” [“al-sayda”]- as in both Assad and Syrians were being hunted by the outside countries.

‘s ex PM says that Qatari support for jihadists including Nusra in  was in coordination w/ KSA, Turkey & the US via @BBassem7

The partial English transcript is as follows:

“When the events first started in Syria I went to Saudi Arabia and met with King Abdullah. I did that on the instructions of his highness the prince, my father. He [Abdullah] said we are behind you. You go ahead with this plan and we will coordinate but you should be in charge. I won’t get into details but we have full documents and anything that was sent [to Syria] would go to Turkey and was in coordination with the US forces and everything was distributed via the Turks and the US forces. And us and everyone else was involved, the military people. There may have been mistakes and support was given to the wrong faction… Maybe there was a relationship with Nusra, its possible but I myself don’t know about this… we were fighting over the prey [“al-sayda”] and now the prey is gone and we are still fighting… and now Bashar is still there. You [US and Saudi Arabia] were with us in the same trench… I have no objection to one changing if he finds that he was wrong, but at least inform your partner… for example leave Bashar [al-Assad] or do this or that, but the situation that has been created now will never allow any progress in the GCC [Gulf Cooperation Council], or any progress on anything if we continue to openly fight.”

As is now well-known, the CIA was directly involved in leading regime change efforts in Syria with allied gulf partners, as leaked and declassified US intelligence memos confirm. The US government understood in real time that Gulf and West-supplied advanced weaponry was going to al-Qaeda and ISIS, despite official claims of arming so-called “moderate” rebels. For example, a leaked 2014 intelligence memo sent to Hillary Clinton acknowledged Qatari and Saudi support for ISIS.

The email stated in direct and unambiguous language that:

the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region.”

Furthermore, one day before Prime Minister Thani’s interview, The Intercept released a new top-secret NSA document unearthed from leaked intelligence files provided by Edward Snowden which show in stunning clarity that the armed opposition in Syria was under the direct command of foreign governments from the early years of the war which has now claimed half a million lives.

The newly released NSA document confirms that a 2013 insurgent attack with advanced surface-to-surface rockets upon civilian areas of Damascus, including Damascus International Airportwas directly supplied and commanded by Saudi Arabia with full prior awareness of US intelligence. As the former Qatari prime minister now also confirms, both the Saudis and US government staffed “operations rooms” overseeing such heinous attacks during the time period of the 2013 Damascus airport attack.

No doubt there remains a massive trove of damning documentary evidence which will continue to trickle out in the coming months and years. At the very least, the continuing Qatari-Saudi diplomatic war will bear more fruit as each side builds a case against the other with charges of supporting terrorism. And as we can see from this latest Qatari TV interview, the United States itself will not be spared in this new open season of airing dirty laundry as old allies turn on each other.

The Israeli NGO that is bringing relief to America’s disaster areas


JTA – For 17 years, the Israeli NGO IsraAID has been performing search and rescue, purifying water, providing emergency medical assistance and walking victims of trauma back to psychological health in dozens of disaster-hit countries. But no season has been busier than this past summer and fall, its co-CEO Yotam Polizer said in an interview — and nowhere more than in the United States.

“The last few months have been unbelievable,” he said, listing a succession of disasters that occupied local staff and volunteers since August: Hurricane Harvey in Texas, Hurricane Irma in Florida, Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and then the wildfires in northern California.

Polizer recalls that he was wrapping up a visit to IsraAID’s new American headquarters in Palo Alto on Oct. 8 and was on his way to a flight to Mexico to oversee operations after a devastating earthquake there when he got word of the wildfires. “I literally had to do a U-turn,” he said this week in an interview at the Israeli embassy in Washington.

Polizer spoke with the exhilaration of an executive whose team has come through a daunting challenge. “We’re the people who stay past the ‘aid festival,’” he said, grinning, describing the month after a disaster when media attention and donations are at their highest; both tend to disappear after that period.

He anticipated his teams would stay in Houston for another three months and in Puerto Rico for another year. An IsraAID team remains in Haiti eight years after a devastating earthquake hit that country.

The assistance IsraAID administered in the United States over the last two months is emblematic of the added Israeli value it brings to disaster relief across the globe:

–In Houston and in nearby Beaumont, Texas, its team supervised and participated in cleaning debris and strategic house demolition, a skill derived from the clean-up Israeli authorities administer after wartime attacks on Israeli communities;

–In Puerto Rico, the teams administered emergency medical care honed in post-attack scenarios, as well as training in water filtration cultivated in a country where fresh water is scarce;

–In Santa Rosa, California, a social worker with the team led post-trauma care — a hard-won specialty in Israel — for families who lost their homes in the fires.

There are other, less tangible skills, associated with the Israeli experience that Polizer described. For example, Israel’s diverse immigrant base offers language skills: Polizer was able to immediately deploy Spanish speakers to Puerto Rico.

He boasts of an Israeli propensity to cut through bureaucracy when needed — “the Israeli manner,” he calls it. Almost as soon as Houston was hit, the Israeli embassy in Washington was organizing truckloads of relief for the area.

IsraAID volunteers often act as coordinators, a skill cultivated in a country where teenagers are thrust into leadership positions in the army.

“The biggest challenge is how you coordinate and communicate, how you identify what are the gaps in the response,” Polizer said.

One of IsraAID’s U.S. partners is Team Rubicon, an organization of military vets that deploys to disasters. In Houston, the Rubicon-IsraAID proportion was typical of the relationship, he said: The Americans deployed about 2,000 volunteers, while there were seven Israelis. IsraAID relies on a bank of 1,400 volunteers and 270 staff it rotates in and out of afflicted areas.

Polizer — to his own surprise — ended up tapping another non-Israeli team of volunteers in Houston: members of the Yazidi religious minority in Iraq who had sought refuge from deadly persecution at home.

The first call Polizer made after hearing Harvey hit was to Haider Elias, a Yazidi leader who had worked with IsraAID in advocating for greater assistance for Yazidis fleeing from areas controlled by the Islamic State. IsraAID had administered post-trauma counseling to Yazidi refugees.

Polizer called only because he wanted to know his Houston-based friend was okay. As it happens, the Yazidis in Houston mostly live on higher land — but Elias had heard that the Jewish community was hard hit, and saw an opportunity to return the favor. He called around and found another half-dozen Yazidis ready to deploy.

“I went with a truck, I put our logo on it, ‘Yazda’,” he said, referring to the Yazidi advocacy group he heads. The team wore the IsraAID t-shirts. “I met with Yotam in Greece,” where the Israeli organization was assisting Yazidis. “He was doing a great job.” Elias has since visited Israel to lobby the Knesset to recognize the massacres of Yazidis as a genocide, and has toured Yad Vashem, its Holocaust memorial.

IsraAID’s first crisis point is often a disaster area’s Jewish community, if it is afflicted. It then moves onto other communities. Elias and his team remained in Houston, assisting in debris-clearing and demolition, while the IsraAID team continued to Beaumont, Texas where it remains.

Connecting with Diaspora Jewish communities has become a central part of the IsraAID ethos, Polizer said, noting a program it now runs that deploys young American Jewish volunteers to assist in disaster areas. This year, there were 120 applicants for 14 fellowships.

“We’ve seen a lot of people change their perspective, even here in the United States. For younger Jewish people asking questions about their identity, we see this work really resonates,” he said. “We get large numbers of volunteers from the Jewish community” when IsraAID comes into a disaster zone, he said.

The fellowships are funded by the San Francisco-based Koret Foundation, which also is funding IsraAID’s new Palo Alto office, and seed money that allows IsraAID to deploy teams quickly while raising money elsewhere for the longer term. (IsraAID’s $9 million annual budget comes from foundations and private donors. Unusual for an Israeli group, 30 percent comes from the United Nations.)

In Santa Rosa, 30 Jewish families were evacuated and one community member died as a result of the fires. Polizer called one of the professionals IsraAID keeps on tab, Niveen Rizkalla, a social worker who is in a post-doctoral program at the University of California-Berkeley.

“In the first week when people are overwhelmed, you just want to listen and be there for them,” said Rizkalla, a Palestinian citizen of Israel originally from Ramle. “People who saw me on the first day saw me on the second day, on the third day — the consistency of me being there helped them feel safe.”

In subsequent weeks, the strategy was to preoccupy the families, who may need to talk less and act more as a means of processing the trauma, she said. Additionally, the evacuation center — set up at the Congregation Shomrei Torah Reform synagogue in the town — served as a care center for children while parents traversed the bureaucratic slog of seeking insurance information.

Rizkalla said it was a skill that came naturally to someone steeped in the tensions of the region. In Haifa, she had directed the city’s crisis center, working with survivors of sexual violence, and before that she was a facilitator at Neve Shalom, the Jewish-Arab village in Israel that promotes dialogue.

“I was facilitating groups of Palestinian and Jewish Israelis, and sometimes Germans were added into this conflict,” she said, chuckling. “I developed tolerance and understanding of what is involved in a conflict situation.”

Canadian Stock Exchanges Look to Attract Israeli Companies


BREAKING ISRAEL NEWS – Two Canadian stock exchanges are striving to draw Israeli companies to list with them.

A delegation from the TMX Group, which operates both the Toronto Stock Exchange and the Calgary-based TSX Venture Exchange, visited Israel this week as part of the Journey 2017 annual business conference. The gathering is sponsored by EY Israel, the Israeli branch of the global accounting giant Ernst & Young.

According to the organizers, about 2,000 people from 100 leading firms in the finance industry attended the conference, which ran from Oct. 22-25.

Robert Peterman, vice president of global business development at the Toronto Stock Exchange, told reporters that Israel is “one of the better places” for finding innovative companies.

“Israel is an important market for our exchanges, and we are pleased to head this delegation of leading Canadian innovation sector investment bankers and capital market advisers,” Peterman said. “Two key benefits we see for listing on either Toronto Stock Exchange or Venture include access to North American investors that are able to support companies at all stages of growth, and a competitive landscape of investment banks to support these growth companies with financing and research coverage.”

There are currently six Israeli companies listed on the two Canadian exchanges, to the tune of $1.9 billion.

Canadian delegation on Israel visit

4 Votes


YNET – A group of over 100 Canadian politicians and business leaders from Ontario arrive in Israel to strengthen the Israel-Canada relationship. The Premier of the Canadian province of Ontario, Kathleen Wynne, arrived in Israel at the head of a delegation of over 100 Canadian politicians and business leaders on Sunday.

Included in the delegation is Ontario Minister of Health and Long-Term Care Hon. Dr. Eric Hoskins, and Ontario Minister of and Development Reza Moridi, amongst others.

Ontario is the most populous province in Canada, and is also home to Toronto, the most populous city in Canada. Ten of the world’s largest tech companies have their research and development centers in the province, and the information technology sector provides over 250,000 jobs.

Teva Pharmaceuticals even has a production facility an hour outside of Toronto, and many Israelis have set up hi tech and med tech companies in the province.

Israel-Canada relations

In a preliminary visit to Canada, Canadian representatives explained to the Israelis present why the relationship between the two countries is so important, and why they want to strengthen it.

“Israel may be small, but there is definitely a market there,” the Canadians said, adding that Israel punches above its weight.

Premier Wynne added that “before I was a politician, I was an educator and worked at a Jewish school. We worked on subjects such as conflict resolution, something which was very important to me, and something which led me into politics.”

One of the prime examples of development and entrepreneurship Ontario has to offer is the Mars Building situated in the heart of Toronto. The building, a former hospital, has been turned into a complex for hi tech medical sciences and information technology. The companies based there have been chosen to receive government support due to their commercial viability.

Earl Miller, a Mars Building representative, explained the rationale behind the Canadian project.

“We provide assistance to companies which want to develop in the bio-tech and info-tech sectors. It’s difficult to commercialize a product, so while the various institutions and companies do the research, we assist with the commercialization.”

Gal Sela of Synaptive Medical Inc which operates in the building is an Israeli who lived most of his life in Canada.

“I started the company with three others in 2012, and today, we’ve grown to 210 employees. We started by dealing with medical physics, and we have seven products which have already been approved for use. One of our products assists with neurosurgery. It’s like a GPS for the brain – forms a map of the brain and tells the surgeon exactly where to operate. We are also focusing on the US market, and our products have already been used in over 700 surgeries.”

“Seven Palestinians Killed In Israeli Bombardment Of Border Tunnel”  

Update 2:

Medical sources in Gaza have confirmed that the number of Palestinians, who were killed in the Israeli bombardment of a border tunnel in Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, has arrived to seven, while at least eleven more were injured, including three who suffered life-threatening wounds.

Three Palestinians remain in very  serious conditions, while rescue teams are still looking  for Palestinians, believed to be buried under the rubble.

The Israeli army fired at least five missiles into the tunnel, which was still under construction, close to Kissufim military base, across the border fence.

Husam Abdullah Samiri

The sources added that the search and rescue operations were ongoing, trying to locate more Palestinians who could still be trapped under the rubble of the bombarded tunnel.

In an official statement, the Al-Quds Brigades said five of its fighters have been killed, and identified them as;

  1. Arafat Abu Mirshid, one of its senior leaders in the Central District.
  2. Hasan Abu Hassanein, Arafat’s deputy.
  3. Omar Nassar al-Faleet, Al-Quds Brigades fighter in the Central District.
  4. Ahmad Khalil Abu Armana, Al-Quds Brigades fighter in the Central District.
  5. Husam Abdullah Samiri, Al-Quds Brigades fighter in the Central District.

Omar Nassar al-Faleet

Two hours after Armana was killed, his pregnant wife move to the same hospital where her husband’s corpse was moved to. Initial reports indicate she is in labor.

Meanwhile, the Al-Qassam Brigades has confirmed the death of:

  1. Misbah Fayeq Shbeir, Al-Qassam Brigades.
  2. Mohammad Marwan al-Aqha, Al-Qassam Brigades.

Both were killed during the searched and rescue operations that following the Israeli bombardment.

Mohammad al-Agha

The Palestinian Health Ministry has reported that around eleven Palestinians have been injured, and that the number casualties could increase as the rescue efforts are still ongoing.

Several armed factions, including al-Qassam Brigades, and al-Quds brigades, issued statements condemning the latest violations, and the very serious military escalation, and added that Israel is trying to sabotage the Palestinian unity agreement.

Al-Qassam added that “the resistance against this occupation, by all available means, is a legitimate right.”

Another group, known as the Mujahidin Movement, said it reserves the right to retaliate, and will cont

Misbah Shbeir

inue to fight against the Israeli occupation.

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) also issued a statement vowing retaliation, and said that Israel is trying to drag the Palestinians into a new war, to stop the implementation of the Palestinian Unity Agreement.

Arafat Abu Mirshid

Ahrar movement in Gaza, also vowed retaliation, as a legitimate right to resist the Israeli occupation, and held Israel responsible for any further escalation.

Dr. Mustafa Barghouthi, the Secretary-General of the Palestinian National Initiative, said the bombardment just exposes the true nature of the Israeli government, headed by Benjamin Netanyahu.

He called on all factions to unite, under one national and strategic leadership, to protect the Palestinian people, and to counter the ongoing and illegal Israeli occupation.

Three Palestinians killed, Nine Injured, After Israeli Force Bombarded A Tunnel In Southern Gaza
Oct 30, 2017 @ 19:17

Palestinian medical sources have reported, on Monday evening, that three Palestinians were killed, and at least nine others were injured, one seriously, after the Israeli Air Force fired five missiles at a border tunnel, east of Kissufim military base, across the border fence, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The sources identified the Palestinians as Ahmad Khalil Abu Armana, 25, Omar Nassar al-Faleet, 27, and Misbah Fayeq Shbeir, 30. Their remains, along with nine wounded Palestinians, were transferred to Al-Aqsa hospital.

It is worth mentioning that the runnel was run by Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad.

The Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, said Shbeir was one of its members, and that he was killed while participating in the  rescue  efforts of Al-Quds fighters, who were buried under the rubble.

The Israeli army said it carried out what it called “a scheduled detonation of a new tunnel, which was still under construction, near the border fence.”

The bombing was instantly followed by heavy deployment of armored vehicles and fighter jets, in the area, especially east of Khan Younis.

Israeli Ynet News quoted the army’s spokesperson Brig. Gen. Manelis stating that “the detonating was successful, and that the tunnel no longer constitutes a threat to the country.”

He added that the tunnel violated Israel’s sovereignty, and that the army has been monitoring it for a while.

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and Defense Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, held Hamas fully responsible for the tunnel, and escalation, adding that the army’s advanced technology “gives it the best means to deal with the tunnels’ threat.”

The army also installed the Iron Dome missile interception system along the border, in anticipation of retaliation, and a possible serious escalation.

On its part, the Al-Quds Brigades said it will retaliate to this bombing “at the appropriate time and place.”

Iran has slammed the Tel Aviv regime’s latest attack on the Gaza Strip, which claimed the lives of eight people and injured many more.

“The blood thirsty Zionist regime mistakenly thinks that by killing Palestinian youths it can break their will,” said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi on Monday.

He added that seven decades of such atrocities have not been able to curb the will and resolve of the Palestinian people.

Earlier in the day, Israeli war planes bombarded and destroyed a lifeline tunnel in the southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Among the victims were two senior commanders of al-Quds Brigades, which is the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement.

The tunnel, which was still under construction, reportedly belonged to Hamas resistance movement and infiltrated into the heart of the occupied Palestinian territories.

A new war against Gaza

Meanwhile, the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has criticized the incident as an attempt to undermine the reconciliation talks between the Palestinian factions.

The movement also stressed that the Israeli attack constituted a new war against the people of Gaza.

The Gaza Strip has been under an Israeli siege since June 2007. Since then, the Israeli regime has launched three devastating wars on the coastal strip.

The latest military offensive against the territory in 2014, left nearly 2,200 Palestinians dead, including 577 children, over 11,100 others wounded and thousands of homes destroyed.

The blockade has caused a decline in the standards of living as well as unprecedented levels of unemployment and unrelenting poverty.

The Israeli regime denies about 1.8 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs with proper wages as well as adequate healthcare and education.

 The Bar-Kokhba Revolt

(132 – 135 CE)

The Bar Kokhba revolt marked a time of high hopes followed by violent despair. The Jews were handed expectations of a homeland and a Holy Temple, but in the end were persecuted and sold into slavery. During the revolt itself, the Jews gained enormous amounts of land, only to be pushed back and crushed in the final battle of Bethar.

When Hadrian first became the Roman emperor in 118 C.E., he was sympathetic to the Jews. He allowed them to return to Jerusalem and granted permission for the rebuilding of their Holy Temple. The Jews’ expectations rose as they made organizational and financial preparations to rebuild the temple. Hadrian quickly went back on his word, however, and requested that the site of the Temple be moved from its original location. He also began deporting Jews to North Africa.

The Jews prepared to rebel until Rabbi Joshua ben Hananiah calmed them. The Jews then satisfied themselves with preparing secretly in case a rebellion would later become necessary. They built hideouts in caves and did shoddy work building weapons so that the Romans would reject the weapons and return them to the Jews.

The Jews organized guerilla forces and, in 123 C.E., began launching surprise attacks against the Romans. From that point on, life only got worse for the Jews. Hadrian brought an extra army legion, the “Sixth Ferrata,” into Judea to deal with the terrorism. Hadrian hated “foreign” religions and forbade the Jews to perform circumcisions. He appointed Tinneius Rufus governor of Judea. Rufus was a harsh ruler who took advantage of Jewish women. In approximately 132 C.E., Hadrian began to establish a city in Jerusalem called Aelia Capitolina, the name being a combination of his own name and that of the Roman god Jupiter Capitolinus. He started to build a temple to Jupiter in place of the Jewish Holy Temple.

As long as Hadrian remained near Judea, the Jews stayed relatively quiet. When he left in 132, the Jews began their rebellion on a large scale. They seized towns and fortified them with walls and subterranean passages. Under the strong leadership of Shimon Bar-Kokhba, the Jews captured approximately 50 strongholds in Judea and 985 undefended towns and villages, including Jerusalem. Jews from other countries, and even some gentiles, volunteered to join their crusade. The Jews minted coins with slogans such as “The freedom of Israel” written in Hebrew. Hadrian dispatched General Publus Marcellus, governor of Syria, to help Rufus, but the Jews defeated both Roman leaders. The Jews then invaded the coastal region and the Romans began sea battles against them.

The turning point of the war came when Hadrian sent into Judea one of his best generals from Britain, Julius Severus, along with former governor of Germania, Hadrianus Quintus Lollius Urbicus. By that time, there were 12 army legions from Egypt, Britain, Syria and other areas in Judea. Due to the large number of Jewish rebels, instead of waging open war, Severus besieged Jewish fortresses and held back food until the Jews grew weak. Only then did his attack escalate into outright war. The Romans demolished all 50 Jewish fortresses and 985 villages. The main conflicts took place in Judea, the Shephela, the mountains and the Judean desert, though fighting also spread to Northern Israel. The Romans suffered heavy casualties as well and Hadrian did not send his usual message to the Senate that “I and my army are well.”

The final battle of the war took place in Bethar, Bar-Kokhba’s headquarters, which housed both the Sanhedrin (Jewish High Court) and the home of the Nasi (leader). Bethar was a vital military stronghold because of its strategic location on a mountain ridge overlooking both the Valley of Sorek and the important Jerusalem-Bet Guvrin Road. Thousands of Jewish refugees fled to Bethar during the war. In 135 C.E., Hadrian’s army besieged Bethar and on the 9th of Av, the Jewish fast day commemorating the destruction of the first and second Holy Temples, the walls of Bethar fell. After a fierce battle, every Jew in Bethar was killed. Six days passed before the Romans allowed the Jews to bury their dead.

Following the battle of Bethar, there were a few small skirmishes in the Judean Desert Caves, but the war was essentially over and Judean independence was lost. The Romans plowed Jerusalem with a yoke of oxen. Jews were sold into slavery and many were transported to Egypt. Judean settlements were not rebuilt. Jerusalem was turned into a pagan city called Aelia Capitolina and the Jews were forbidden to live there. They were permitted to enter only on the 9th of Av to mourn their losses in the revolt. Hadrian changed the country’s name from Judea to Syria Palestina.

In the years following the revolt, Hadrian discriminated against all Judeo-Christian sects, but the worst persecution was directed against religious Jews. He made anti-religious decrees forbidding Torah study, Sabbath observance, circumcision, Jewish courts, meeting in synagogues and other ritual practices. Many Jews assimilated and many sages and prominent men were martyred including Rabbi Akiva and the rest of the Asara Harugei Malchut (ten martyrs). This age of persecution lasted throughout the remainder of Hadrian’s reign, until 138 C.E.

Israeli MK Zohar: Palestinians Have No Right to National Identity

MEMO/Days of Palestine

An Israeli parliamentarian has expressed his support for formal apartheid, backing annexation of entire West Bank, but without its Palestinian inhabitants being granted the right to vote.

MK Miki Zohar, who is chair of the Knesset’s Special Committee for Distributive Justice and Social Equality, expressed his views in an interview with Haaretz newspaper.

“When we say to the Palestinians, ‘We are giving you a state, let’s make peace’ – it’s deceiving them,” Zohar told the paper.

“No one is going to give them a state, not the left either. I am saying: Let’s cut this problem off before it begins and stop with the lies. We’ll tell them: ‘Guys, no state, live here with us, prosper, earn a living, educate your children’.”

Asked whether he meant that Palestinians in an annexed West Bank would not vote in the Knesset elections, Zohar replied in the affirmative.

“We must always maintain control over the mechanisms of the state, as the Jewish people that received this country by right and not by an act of charity.”

Over the years it is very possible the Arabs could become the majority here, and I cannot take this risk.

According to Zohar, such views are “not extreme” but “realistic.”

He continued: “In my opinion, he [the Palestinian] doesn’t have the right to national identity, because he does not own the land of this country.”

“I want him as a resident by virtue of my own sense of fairness – because he was born here and lives here, I will not tell him to leave. I’m sorry to say this, but they have one conspicuous liability: They weren’t born Jews.”

With respect to Palestinians with Israeli citizenship, Zohar said: “They will have to choose if they are loyal to the state”, based on three conditions: “national service; recognition of the Israeli flag, which would fly above every public institution; and recognizing Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.”

“And this would not be the decision of an individual, but of a public authority. If they can’t meet these criteria, they would no longer be able to vote for the Knesset.”

Judaism mandates that we seek and pursue peace. Great is peace, for it is one of God’s names, all God’s blessings are contained in it, it must be sought in times of war, and it will be the first blessing brought by the Messiah.

Who REALLY Assassinated Abraham Lincoln and John F Kennedy?

Abraham Lincoln

During the Civil War (from 1861 to 1865), President Lincoln needed money to finance the war from the North. The Bankers were going to charge him 24 percent to 36 percent interest. Lincoln was horrified and went away greatly distressed, for he was a man of principle and would not think of plunging his beloved country into a debt that the country would find impossible to pay back.

Eventually, President Lincoln was advised to get Congress to pass a law authorizing the printing of full legal tender Treasury notes to pay for the war effort. Lincoln recognized the great benefits of this issue. At one point, he wrote, “[we] gave the people of this Republic the greatest blessing they have ever had – their own paper money to pay their own debts”.

Lincoln printed $449 million dollars worth of Greenbacks (the exact amount being $449,338,902), money that he delegated to be created, a debt-free and interest-free money to finance the war. It served as legal tender for all debts, public and private. He printed it, paid it to the soldiers, to the US Civil Service employees, and bought supplies for war.

Shortly after that happened, The London Times printed the following:

“If that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without a debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed, or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe”.

The Bankers obviously understood. The only thing, I repeat, the only thing that is a threat to their power is sovereign governments printing interest-free and debt-free paper money. They know it would break the power of the International Bankers.

In Retaliation

After this was published in The London Times, the British government, which was controlled by the London and other European Bankers, moved to support the Confederate South, hoping to defeat Lincoln and the Union, and destroy this government which they said had to be destroyed.

They were stopped by two things.

First, Lincoln knew the British people, and he knew that Britain would not support slavery, so he issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which declared that slavery in the South was abolished. At this point, the London Bankers could not openly support the Confederacy because the British people simply would not stand for their country supporting slavery.

Second, the Czar of Russia sent a portion of the Russian Navy to the United States with orders that its Admiral would operate under the command of Abraham Lincoln. These ships of the Russian Navy then became a threat to the ships of the British Navy which had intended to break the blockade and help the South.

The North won the war and the Union was preserved. America remained as one nation.

Of course, the Bankers were not going to give in that easy, for they were determined to put an end to Lincoln’s interest-free, debt-free Greenbacks. He was assassinated by an agent of the Bankers shortly after the war ended.

Thereafter, Congress revoked the Greenback Law and enacted in its place, the National Banking Act. The national banks were to be privately owned and the national bank notes they issued were to be interest-bearing. The Act also provided that the Greenbacks should be retired from circulation as soon as they came back to the Treasury in payment of taxes.

In 1972, the Unites States Treasury Department was asked to compute the amount of interest that would have been paid if that $400 million dollars would have been borrowed at interest instead of being issued by Abraham Lincoln. They did some computations, and a few weeks later, the United States Treasury Department said the United States government saved $4 billion dollars in interest because Lincoln had created his own money. So you can imagine how much the government has paid and how much we owe solely on the basis of interest.

The Federal Reserve Act

There were changes in the money and banking laws for the next fifty years. Finally, in 1913, the Bankers were able to get their Federal Reserve Act passed through Congress which replaced the National Banking Act that had earlier replaced the Greenback Law. If the government would have continued the policy of Abraham Lincoln, the warnings given in The London Times would have come to pass. America would be a debt-free nation, the most prosperous in the world. And the brains and the wealth of the world would have come to America.

But with this Federal Reserve Act being passed, Congress gave up its power to create its own money that it was given in the United States Constitution, and gave this power over to private Bankers who called themselves the Federal Reserve. The Bankers had achieved their ultimate goal, for now the United States operated under a central bank that was privately owned. They now had the power to run the country by controlling the creation of the money, and were free to charge the interest they so desired.

As Mayer Anselm Rothschild once said, “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws…”

John F Kennedy

No United States President since Abraham Lincoln dared to go against the system and create his own money, as many of these Presidents were actually only instruments or puppets of the Bankers. That is until President John F Kennedy came into office.

President Kennedy was not afraid to ‘buck the system’, for he understood how the Federal Reserve System was being used to destroy the United States.

See the top line of this bill – Federal Reserve Note

See the top line of this bill – United States Note

As a just and honorable man, he could not tolerate such a system, for it smelled of corruption from A to Z. Certainly he must have known about the Greenbacks which Abraham Lincoln created when he was in office.

On June 4, 1963, President Kennedy signed a Presidential Executive Order 11110, which further amended Executive Order 10289 of September 19, 1951. This gave Kennedy, as President of the United States, legal clearance to create his own money to run the country, money that would belong to the people, an interest and debt-free money. He had printed United States Notes, completely ignoring the Federal Reserve Notes from the private banks of the Federal Reserve.

Records show that Kennedy issued $4,292,893,825 worth of cash money. It was perfectly obvious that Kennedy was out to undermine the Federal Reserve System of the United States.

But it was only a few months later, in November 1963, that the world received the shocking news of President Kennedy’s assassination. No reason was given, of course, for anyone wanting to commit such an atrocious crime. But for those who knew anything about money and banking, it did not take long to put the pieces of the puzzle together. For surely, President Kennedy must have had it in mind to repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, and return back to the United States  Congress the power to create its own money.

It is interesting to note that, only one day after Kennedy’s assassination, all the United States Notes which Kennedy had issued were called out of circulation. Was this through an Executive Order of the newly-installed President, Lyndon B Johnson? Was President Johnson afraid of the Bankers? Or was he one of their instruments? At any rate, all of the money President Kennedy had created was destroyed. And not a word was said to the American people.

A Lesson to Learn

There is much that can be learned from our past history. Here we are, more than a century and a half from the days of Lincoln, and the United States is still operating under the Federal Reserve System. It has already plunged our country trillions of dollars into debt, a debt it will never be able to pay, and has been responsible for every kind of corruption imaginable. Yet, barely a peep of protest can be heard from the American people.

All the Bankers have to do to keep their power is to get rid of the few politicians who are honestly working for a reform in our economic system, and the people at large remain ignorant and controlled. It is obvious the American people need to be awakened to the truth.

The population at large must be educated on the Federal Reserve, and then unite together to put pressure on the government to get the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 repealed. Otherwise, it will spell disaster for the United States.

There can be no peace without justice and there can be no justice without a reform in our economic system, for the financiers are behind all the corruption in our government. Abraham Lincoln and John F Kennedy both had the courage to stand up for principles and to fight for justice. They have both gone down in history as being true patriots of the United States. But do we, as citizens, have the courage to follow their example?

NWO-Taqija: Swedish Feminist Academics´ Fake News about Islam Being Swedish Vikings´ Religion brought uncritically by MSM

I have time and again written, how Marxist Swedish feminists  and here and here e.g. have been infected with satanic Islam (see below) and how Luciferian and  and here as well as have  Swedish Masons – all are making  cultural adultery with Islam  with the help of Rothschild agent George Soros and here.

Into their “New Country” Swedes – not Muslim immigrants – are to be reintegrated
Allah is the best of deceivers. Here is what Jesus Christ calls deceivers:
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44).

Breitbart 19 Oct. 2017:  Last week Swedish researchers claimed to have found evidence that a piece of Viking burial clothing contained Arabic script and references to Allah, but new research has proved the claims to be false.

The  only similarity between the religions of vikings and Muslims is the command to kill in order to conquer the lands and treasures of higher developed people as commanded by their murderous gods Wotan and Thor/ Allah. The difference is that the vikings quickly recognized and learned from the skills of the people they conquered and settled among – whereas the Muslims never learned – just using the skills of their conquered and subdued peoples.

The team of Swedish researchers from Uppsala University claimed that they had found at least two instances of Viking-age artefacts influenced by Islam. Archaeologist Annika Larsson said the cloth they reexamined had Kufic script from the Middle East, but according to a Medieval Islamic scholar that is impossible as the Kufic script was not invented until 500 years later.

Stephennie Mulder, an expert on Medieval Islam at the University of Texas at Austin, said that it despite there being proven contact between the Viking civilisation and the Muslim world, it was impossible for the textile to contain a script which had yet to have been invented.

“It’s a style called square Kufic, and it’s common in Iran, C. Asia on architecture after 15th century,” she wrote on Twitter.

Ms. Mulder slammed the media for reporting on the story without questioning Larsson’s conclusions saying the archaeologist’s “claim is based on extrapolation, not evidence”.

Mulder also added that even if the script was Kufic the correct word said: “Illah” and not “Allah”, which she wrote, “basically makes no sense in Arabic”.

The revelation is not the first scandal to affect Swedish archaeology in recent months. Svenska Dagbladet made the remarkable revelation in August that large amounts of new finds being excavated during building projects were going straight to scrap rather than being catalogued and preserved.

The historical authority responsible for the decision claimed the sheer volume of objects, including weapons, coins, and arrowheads meant there wasn’t time to examine it all, so they were being melted down instead.

In Sweden, there has developed an “Islamophile” movement among many academics, politicians, and left-wing activists.

Even the Archbishop of Stockholm offered Muslims the ability to pray in Christian churches and told priests to remove the crosses for the Muslim worshippers.

In a bizarre video from a Dutch-made documentary on Islam and integration in Sweden, a left-wing migrant activist defended the Islamic practice of polygamy saying she wished her husband would take on another wife to help with the housework.

Even the Islamic practise of marrying underage girls has been tolerated in Sweden. A pregnant 14-year-old asylum seeker was allowed to live with her adult “husband” by the government until they were alerted to the fact that he was raping her several months later.

And this seems to especially please  feminists and Freemason politicians: Koransura 9: 5 – But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent (convert to Islam), and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

And this seems to especially please feinists and Masonic politicians Koran sura 9:5  –  “But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful”.
This sword verse abrogates all peaceful Koran verses

The old society must be obliterated at any cost, in order to burn the world communist NWO into people´s minds – to transform you into soulless easily governed  robots.

Die alte Gesellschaft muss um jeden Preis in Vergessenheit gebracht werden, damit die weltkommunistische NWO allein in die Bewusstheit des Volkes eingeprägt werde.

Lucifer with the many names is at large. This is his NWO: Murder, lies, deception, abolishment of the teachings of Christ at any cost.

The Truth about Yom Kippur’s Kol Nidre Rite

Yom Kippur’s Kol Nidre Rite

The Truth about Yom Kippur’s Kol Nidre Rite
By Michael Hoffman |
As part of Yom Kippur, the Kol Nidre (“All vows”) ritual will take place this year after sunset on Sept. 29, when believers troop into the synagogue to absolve themselves of all future oaths, promises and contracts made in the coming year.
Chabad-Lubavitch makes the following candid admission:
Kol Nidre, which means ‘all vows,’ nullifies the binding nature of such promises in advanceOne declares all future vows and promises invalid, by declaring that all vows are ‘absolved, remitted, cancelled, declared null and void, not in force of in effect.”
Kol Nidre is one reason why Christians of the past would not permit a Talmudist to testify in court, serve on a jury or obtain citizenship—their word was worthless, due to their adherence to the Talmudic creed (not because of their race; racism is not of Jesus Christ).

Almost all stories about this rite which appear annually in autumn in establishment newspapers and other media, invariably falsify it, describing it as a noble plea for forgiveness and atonement for having broken promises in the past, which, if that were the case, would indeed be a commendable exercise. But as is customary in Talmudism, the media’s explanation intended for consumption by the goyim, is a hoax.

In Mishnah Hagigah 1:8 (a) the Talmud admits there is no Biblical basis for the Kol Nidre rite. Rabbi Moses Maimonides also confesses that the Kol Nidre is not Biblical: “The absolution from oaths has no basis whatsoever in the Written Torah” (Mishneh Torah, Sefer Haflaah, Hilkhot Shevuot 6:2).
During the Second Temple period means for annulling vows in the future were adopted. The Jew Philo of Alexandria in his Hypothetica (7:3-5) reported on the practice in the First century A.D. of annulment of an individual’s future vows by the intercession a Jewish priest or rabbinic sage. About five centuries later, a custom devoted to wholesale nullification of vows came into vogue, associated with Yom Kippur eve and originally recited in Hebrew.
By 1050 A.D. Kol Nidre became institutionalized in European Ashkenazi (Khazar) Judaism. (Nullification of vows took a different path of development in North African Sephardic Judaism). In Ashkenazi Judaism it was accepted by such luminaries as the last of the eminent geonim, Hai bar Sherira, who included the Kol Nidre in his own siddur (prayer book).

Kol Nidre’s place in Judaism was further cemented by Rashi’s son-in-law, Rabbi Meir ben Samuel, and later his grandson, Rabbenu Tam, who insisted on the rite’s central modah’ah aspect:

“…the anticipatory annulment in advance of all vows that one might make in the coming year. His basis for this notion was a passage in the Babylonian Talmud: ‘If one wishes to ensure that one’s vows for the coming year will not be binding, one should say the following at the beginning of the year: Any vow that I vow in the future shall be null and void’ (Nedarim 23b)….it became a nullification of vows ‘from this Yom Kippur until the next.”

By the 13th century Kol Nidre became a Yom Kippur staple as witnessed by the fact that the MaHaRaM (Moreinu Harav Rabbi Meir of Rothenberg) added extensively to its liturgical framework.

To all those “Christians” who, rather than seeking to rescue the pitiable Judaics who are captive to this system of institutionalized religious dishonesty,  abandon them to it: you are playing a hateful part by cooperating with the Orthodox rabbis in permitting more Judaic souls to be lost to the Father of Lies.

The Babylonian Talmud’s deceitful nullification tactics would eventually be adopted by the papalists as “mental reservation” and “equivocation” (cf. The Occult Renaissance Church of Rome, pp. 354, 405-480), commensurate with Pope Leo X’s promotion of the publication and dissemination of a magnificent edition of the Talmud produced by expert Catholic printers at his command.

Moore defeats the Money Power in Alabama

Roy Moore Defeats Paul Singer, Jared Kushner  and the Money Power in the Alabama Senate primary
By Michael Hoffman •
Tens of millions of dollars were donated to the aptly named Luther Strange in his Donald Trump-endorsed attempt to defeat staunch Christian Roy Moore in the Republican primary for US Senate in Alabama on September 26.
The 70-year-old Moore is the former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, which is an elected office in that state. He was twice removed from the court by the machinations of lawyers and politicians: first for refusing to dismantle a Ten Commandments memorial from the courthouse and again, after being reelected by the people of Alabama, for stating that God’s law trumps man’s law when it comes to rejecting the judicial abomination lately known as “gay marriage”—the Supreme Court-licensed perversion unprecedented in the history of western civilization. For his exemplary refusal to cooperate with the homosexual rights’ revolution, the media, with their typical abuse of the English language, stigmatize Moore as an “extremist.” To oppose a revolution is an act of conservation, not extremism, but try telling that to the grand wizards of word jugglery.
Dr. Chuck Baldwin, himself a former candidate for President of the United States and a personal friend of Judge Moore, provided details on how Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor, President George W. Bush and swamp denizen Karl Rove moved against Moore. This is first person history and recommended reading. Baldwin relates how Bush awarded Pryor’s treachery against Moore with a federal judgeship. Message: betray true Christians and you will receive lucrative emoluments made possible by the visible heads of what is otherwise a cryptocracy.
In addition to Chuck Baldwin, we contributed in our way to Moore’s campaign by identifying and exposing one of the largest donors to Sen. Mitch McConnell’s Republican super pac which funded Strange: Paul Singer, a billionaire American-Israeli fanatic and militant homosexual rights campaigner who believes in protective walls for the Israelis while funding open borders for the U.S. This crocodile is the typical well-heeled “Republican” donor for whom the swamp is habitat.
Moreover, while the New York Times did not investigate the criminal politics behind Strange’s appointment to Jeff Sessions’ vacated Senate seat, it did at least allude to it in today’s (September 27) edition:
“Strange’s demise was in some respects as much a local phenomenon as a national one, stemming from his appointment this year by then-Gov. Robert Bentley to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Mr. Strange, the state’s attorney general at the time, was overseeing an investigation into Mr. Bentley’s personal relationship with a close aidesuggesting to many in a scandal-weary state that there may have been a corrupt bargain. The newly appointed senator denied any wrongdoing, but never fully confronted the issue in a way that would eliminate the lingering cloud over the appointment.”
The Times reported further: “Mr. Moore’s incendiary rhetoric will also oblige others in the GOP to answer for his comments, perhaps for years to come, at a time when many Republicans would just as soon move on from the debate over gay rights.”
Think of it: “many Republicans” would just as soon accept (“move on from”) the revolutionary overthrow of the Biblical institution of marriage by the legalization of the sham “marriage” of homosexuals. The GOP leadership are eager to accept as settled law a defiant act of rebellion against God which spells the beginning of the end of our civilization. Hey, that’s politics! Democrats initiate  revolution and the Republican Establishment pretends to “resist” by acquiescing to it gradually rather than immediately.
The Republican Money Power men (Jared Kushner, Karl Rove, Mitch McConnell, Paul Singer, John McCain) are not concerned with the immutable morality of the Bible. These Republicans desire to accommodate evil for the sake of gaining more power, more money and the blessing of the mainstream media.
In the midst of this political swamp a man like Roy Moore appears like an alien from Mars. Establishment Republicans can’t understand a guy who won’t make a deal with the devil, as they have.
Judge Moore stated that he never prayed to win his primary campaign. He only prayed that God’s will be done. Coming from most politicians we would laugh at them for expecting us to believe that a selfless act like that really took place. Based on his past record of courage and conscience proving Moore’s character however, we do believe it — and we pray he wins a Senate seat December 12, against the Democrat Party’s nominee, Doug Jones, another former prosecutor.

Books banned by “Banned Books Week”

We are in the midst of the American Library Association’s annual “Banned Books Week,” the eponymous celebration of books forbidden by censors and pressure groups in the United States. While the event purports to focus on books deemed too dangerous for impressionable minds, the daring entries showcased this year includeHuckleberry Finn and The Handmaid’s Tale, the televised version of which swept the Emmy awards earlier this month.
Missing from this largely self-congratulatory liberal exercise are the most interdicted books of our time, the contrarian World War II revisionist histories luridly emblazoned with the literary equivalent of the Mark of Cain, “Holocaust denial.”
Last February the World Jewish Congress and the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum succeeded in convincing the heretofore libertarian Jeff Bezos that books by leading revisionist scholars such as Carlo Mattogno and Germar Rudolf should be made to vanish from the web pages of Amazon, where they had been sold for years.What little media coverage was accorded the ban made it appear as though only three books had been removed by Mr. Bezos, when in fact hundreds were banned (for a partial list see here).
We contacted the American Library Associations’s Office for Intellectual Freedom, as well as the co-sponsor of Banned Books Week, the American Booksellers Association, demanding to know when and how they intend to redress the scandal of mass book-banning at Amazon. Because revisionist critiques of the Auschwitz homicidal gas chamber dogma are grotesquely misrepresented and demonized, in our communication we included a link to an online pdf. file of Mr. Rudolf’s monumental work of erudite historiography, Lectures on the Holocaust. All we have received in return is the infamous silent treatment.
The hypocrisy is breathtaking. An enormous facade of defiant freedom of the press has been erected by the Left, giving every impression of militant advocacy for books damned by small-minded philistines and powerful lobbies, and yet policed out of consideration are the very works that scintillate with the frisson of the anathematized, and which are consigned to literary oblivion by the supposed champions of the right to read what we please.
Banned books that are banned by Banned Books Week? Can it get any more surreal?

The answer is yes if we consider the current controversy over Google’s manipulation of its search engine results. “Holocaust-denial,” the 800 pound gorilla that cannot be mentioned in regard to banned books, has also been banned from the current debate over Google’s corruption of its search engine.

Last year Jeff John Roberts, writing in Fortune (Dec. 20, 2016), revealed the original motivation for Google’s falsification:

“In recent months, Google has confronted a new and unsettling trend: Its top search results for questions about the Holocaust lead to neo-Nazi sites…on Tuesday, a Google spokesperson told Fortune it is making some changes. ‘Judging which pages on the web best answer a query is a challenging problem and we don’t always get it right,’ said the spokesperson. ‘We recently made improvements to our algorithm that will help surface more high quality, credible content on the web. We’ll continue to change our algorithms over time in order to tackle these challenges.”
“…The changes come in the wake of news reports that Google’s  top search result for “Did the Holocaust happen?” was a page by the White Supremacist group, Stormfront:  The update to the algorithms appear to be kicking in already as the Stormfront site has dropped, and the top result is to a link by the United States Holocaust museum.”
Earlier this week, when the New York Times reported on Google’s search engine demotion of a far-Left group, the World Socialist web site, the provenance of this algorithmic tinkering — Google’s attempts to suppress access to sites that question the “Holocaust” liturgy — was omitted.
Times reporter Daisuke Wakabayashi provided plenty of ammunition against Google, but only in connection with falsifying search engine results for Leftist web pages:
“They’re really skating on thin ice,” said Michael Bertini, a search strategist at iQuanti, a digital marketing agency. “They’re controlling what users see. If Google is controlling what they deem to be fake news, I think that’s bias.”
We agree. But to test the sincerity and force of these libertarian sentiments the datum that “Holocaust denial” was the inaugural victim of Google’s rigged search engine, should not be banned from reports on the controversy.

13 Clueless Lowlights from George W. Bush’s Trump-bashing Speech


They like him. They reallyreally like him.

Former President George W. Bush discovered this week that all he had to do to make the media finally like him was take a rhetorical swing at Donald Trump.

And it didn’t hurt that he teamed up with Barack Obama to do it. The result was a media swoon. The New York Times crooned: “Without Saying ‘Trump,’ Bush and Obama Deliver Implicit Rebukes.”

The #Resistance found its new power couple!

But wait, there’s more! The Times also printed a fawning profile of Bush’s twin daughters, Barbara and Jenna. You’ve come a long way, babies, from the tabloid accounts of drunken college revelries.

Now that their father has teamed up with Obama and the Clintons, the girls are enjoying the sort of media love that only Democrat daughters get. In fact, Barbara and Jenna are kind of like a double Chelsea—with Planned Parenthood fundraising and all.

It’s as if the Obamas, Clintons, and Bushes have formed a sort of Establishment extended family. Dubya even likes to call Bill his “brother with a different mother.”

So is it any wonder that George finally joined Barry, Bill, and Hill in bashing Don? Trump, for all his wealth, has never been one of the beautiful people.

The Establishment despises Trump, but they don’t fear him. They fear his Deplorables—the ordinary Americans from every race, religion, gender, and background who catapulted Trump to victory.

The Deplorables are busy polishing their armor for Steve Bannon’s 2018 “season of war”against the Establishment, which is why Bush rose up to denounce them in his speech on Thursday.

He thinks these Deplorable populists are racists preaching the super dangerous idea that American policies should benefit Americans first (See?! That’s proof they hate foreigners!). He believes this monstrous sentiment must be consigned to the ash heap of history … or, like, wherever they hid Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction so that no one could find them.

For a man who kept quiet throughout all of the Obama years, Dubya sure had a lot to say. Let’s examine the text of his speech to understand what was on his mind—or rather his speechwriter’s mind.

Interestingly, I found the transcript of his speech on the website of Town and Countrymagazine, between such important articles as “10 Times Royals Wore the Exact Same Dress.”

T and C is the perfect publication for this paean to the Gospel of Globalism, which enriches the few and impoverishes the rest. Bush’s words are tucked happily between the glossy pages displayed on the mahogany coffee tables of his fellow country-club heirs. (Dubya, the son of a U.S. president and the grandson of a U.S. senator, is right at home with this crowd.)

For your amusement, I pulled out 13 key passages from his speech (or at least, 13 passages that had me snickering at my computer screen). Dubya’s words are in bold, followed by my commentary.

1. “Thank you all. Thank you. Ok, Padilla gracias. So, I painted Ramon.” 

Bush was talking to former Army Sergeant First Class Ramon Padilla. Back in 2007, during the Bush presidency, Padilla, serving in Afghanistan, was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade; he lost his left arm and suffered traumatic brain injury. Bush painted his portrait, as part of his book of guilt-expiating oil portraits of the military veterans he sent to war.

The current edition includes 70 paintings. He has a very long way to go before he finishes painting all of the lives he’s damaged.

2. “It’s amazing to have Secretary Albright share the stage with Condi and Ambassador Haley”

Yes, it’s amazing that Trump’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, would happily share the stage with not only an anti-Trump neoconservative such as Bush, but also with two other neocons, former Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former Bush 43 Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

All three of them, of course, were staunch advocates of the Iraq war and all the other U.S. interventions in the last two decades.  Haley should know that foreign quagmires are even worse than the D.C. swamp.

3. “Free trade helped make America into a global economic power.”

That statement would have been news to such America-builders as Alexander Hamilton, Henry Clay, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt.

As TR exclaimed in 1895, “Thank God I’m not a free trader. In this country pernicious indulgence in the doctrine of free trade seems inevitably to produce fatty degeneration of the moral fiber.”

It was non-free trade, also known as economic nationalism, that built America. We’ve been coasting for decades on its massive industrial legacy; but as we know, it’s grinding to a painful halt.

4. “For more than 70 years, the presidents of both parties believed that American security and prosperity were directly tied to the success of freedom in the world.  And they knew that the success depended, in large part, on U.S. leadership.  The mission came naturally, because it expressed the DNA of American idealism.”

Speaking of missions and idealism, the idealistic pro-freedom military mission of George W. Bush’s generation was Vietnam. And yet interestingly, with the help of his father, then a U.S. Congressman, as well as others in his well-connected social circle, young George managed to avoid active military duty.

Instead, he got himself into the Texas Air National Guard, dubbed a “champagne unit,”because it was so brimming with Bush-types.  In that Guard unit, by all accounts, Bush indulged in more than champagne.  Indeed, Bush had such a bumpy time that he was ultimately thrown out, although by then, the draft was over, and so it didn’t matter any more.

At any time, of course, Bush could have cleaned himself up and served, but he was in no mood to join the military. In 1973, he began attending Harvard Business School.

5. “We know, deep down, that repression is not the wave of the future.“

Tell that to Vladimir Putin.  Back in 2001, President Bush had this to say about the Russian: “I looked the man in the eye. I found him very straightforward and trustworthy. I was able to get a sense of his soul.”

I bet he found the reports about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq “very straightforward and trustworthy” too.

6. “Freedom is not merely a political menu option, or a foreign policy fad; it should be the defining commitment of our country, and the hope of the world.”

I get nervous whenever Bush starts popping off about America’s “commitment” to the world. I flashback to 2005, when Bush delivered one of the craziest inaugural addresses in U.S. history.

In it, he declared, “It is the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world.” [emphasis added].

How’s that grandiose mission working out for the world? And for America? Perhaps Bush could ask the wounded veterans whose portraits he painted.

As an aside, the White House speechwriter for that misguided inaugural screed was Michael Gerson, who is now an in-house globalist neoconservative (one of many) at the Washington Post, where he earns a few of the coins that fall off Jeff Bezos’ table by bashing Trump in every column.

7. “In recent decades, public confidence in our institutions has declined.”

Yes, Bush should know all about that. During his time in office, trust in the federal government fell by almost two-thirds, from 60 percent to 24 percent.

Let’s see… a vainglorious war sold under false pretenses, plus the mishandling of Katrina, plus the economic meltdown followed by the big Wall Street bailout… yeah, that’ll do the trick in making Americans distrust their government.

Yet today, seemingly unmindful of his own failed record, Bush wants to lecture us about restoring trust.

8. “We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism—forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America.”

Legal immigration, properly limited, with enough time for new arrivals to assimilate, has, indeed, been a blessing.

But the legal immigrants must come here as full citizens, not as low-wage indentured servants, which is currently the case for those coming here on H-1B visas and H-2B visas. Nor do we need low-wage illegal immigration to further drive down the wages of American workers.

And speaking of illegal immigration, we must ask: How’d that work out for the Roman empire?

9. “How do we begin to encourage a new, 21st century American consensus on behalf of democratic freedom and free markets? That’s the question I posed to scholars at the Bush Institute. That is what Pete Wehner and Tom Melia, who are with us today, have answered with ‘The Spirit of Liberty: At Home, In The World,’ a Call to Action paper.”

Brace yourself, America. The Bush globalists and neocons are back.

They’re ready with their plans and papers, eager to call us to action.

And when we invade a new country, the people there will throw flowers at us and call us liberators—just like the neocons said the Iraqis would.

10. “In serving as a shining hope for refugees and a voice for dissidents, human rights defenders, and the oppressed.”

It might be worth pointing out that Bush has left much of the Middle East in ruins, even as groups of Islamic jihadis grow ever stronger.

Have you ever noticed that when Bush wants to take a conscience-salving trip somewhere, he goes to Africa—not the Middle East?

11. “We should not be blind to the economic and social dislocations caused by globalization.  People are hurting.  They are angry.  And, they are frustrated. We must hear and help them.”

In the White House, Bush didn’t do a thing to help the hurting.

His biggest domestic ideas were the partial privatization of Social Security and, of course, his attempt to further open the U.S.-Mexico border to depress the labor market for the working class Americans most hurt by globalization.

So why should we trust him now?

12. “The ‘Call to Action’ calls on major institutions of our democracy, public and private, to consciously and urgently attend to the problem of declining trust.”

There he goes again talking about “declining trust.” Funny, every time he says that I think of three little letters: WMD.

13. “It is time for American institutions to step up and provide cultural and moral leadership for this nation.”

Leadership from Bush? And your family, including ¡Jeb!?  And your friends the Clintons?  Seriously?  That’s your idea?

No, please don’t “step up.” Just step away. All of you. Permanently.

In fact, remember that hidey-hole they found Saddam Hussein in? Can someone please build one of those in Dallas or Kennebunkport and escort George to it? Give him some pretzels, non-alcoholic beer, and a satellite feed of the Rangers’ games. He’ll be happy, and so will the rest of us.

If he must stay above ground, he can at least spare us any more speeches. This one was enough.

It was a feast of smirking self-satisfaction like the kind Bush was famous for, combining low ability with an unwarranted sense of superiority.

That’s our Bush. And now that he’s figured out how to make the media like him, I’m afraid we’ll be seeing a lot more of him. And his whole damn family.


The Hidden Financial Ties between the Bush and the Bin Laden Families.

The perpetrators of September 11, 2001 attacks and the people that knew about these terrorist acts could prevent, anticipate and know what their economic effects would be. Consequently, they were able to make some speculative schemes in the stock market on the airlines that owned the hijacked airplanes, on the societies that had its headquarters in the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center and their respective insurances. They could also anticipate a possible general fall on the shares quoted on the stock market. In order to do all this, they just had to speculate for a fall by buying not only the shares of these companies but the «puts», that is, the «put option». The identification of these «knowers» involved in this financial crime represented not only a key piece in a stock market fraud but, and above all, a mean to directly or indirectly establish the identity of the perpetrators of the September 11 attacks.



A Financial Crime

Several days after the September 11 attacks, it was known that certain stock market maneuvers with the characteristics of a “financial crime” were made six days before the attacks. [1]The United Airlines shares (the company which owned the planes that crashed against the southern part of the WTC and in Pittsburg) in the Stock artificially fell 42%. Those of American Airlines (the company that owned the plane that crashed against the northern part of the WTC and the allegedly plane that disappeared when it crashed against the Pentagon) fell 39%. No other airline in the world had been subject to such speculative schemes, except for the KLM Real Dutch Airlines.

So, it can be said that a plane of the Dutch company was also targeted by the terrorists to launch perhaps a fifth attack in a hijacked plane too. Identical maneuvers were also recognized on the put options of Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co which were multiplied by 12 a week before the attacks. The said society had 22 floors of the WTC. The same thing happened with the put options of the leading stockbroker of the world: Merryl Lynch & Co which headquarters was located in a neighboring building next to the WTC in danger of collapsing. Its shares were multiplied by 25; especially the put options on the shares of insurances involved: Munich, Re, Swiss and AXA.

The Chicago Monitoring Commission of stock operations was the first one to call people’s attention. It affirmed that in Chicago’s stock market, the “knowers” had 5 million dollars gains or benefits from United Airlines, 4 million dollars from American Airlines, 1.2 million dollars from Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co and 5.5 million dollars from Merryl Lynch & Co. The monitoring experts every major stock market checked and rechecked the gains of the “knowers”. All investigations were coordinated by the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO). [2]

On October 15, 2001, a video-conference was filmed in which the national authorities presented their first reports. It was showed that the illegal gains would sum hundreds of millions of dollars, that is, “the greatest and most important financial crime of all times” perpetrated by these “knowers”. It was possible to state that most financial transactions had been “made” by the Deutsche Bank and its American investment affiliate, Alex Brown. [3] Until 1998, this society was managed by a peculiar man: Mister A. B. Krongard, marines’ Capitan, shooting and martial arts lover. This banker became adviser to the director of the CIA and, since March 26, 2001, was number three in the American espionage agency (CIA). Based on the importance of the investigation and A. B. Krongard’s influence, it was thought that Alex Brown society would cooperate with the authorities to facilitate the financial criminals’ identification. But this was not the case and nothing has been done up to now. Likewise, it was thought that the revelations made by Ernest Backes [4] several months ago regarding the existence of the registers of the main inter-banks transactions made by two “clearing” organizations would have facilitated the investigators hunting. But, once again, nothing was done.

Despite the militaristic statements made by western leaders against “Terrorism”, the fact is that no investigation has been actually finished; as if they want the whole thing to be forgotten, even when world peace is in danger and many things depend on this. It is about leading the world public opinion to think that the discretion and opacity of the tax heavens would not help or lead to find “clues” of these illegal transactions which would then lead to find the criminal terrorists involved in the attacks. Meanwhile, the financial criminals have prudently relinquished to the 2.5 million dollars of the gain from American Airlines for the alert given prevented them from collecting the last millions earned.

Osama Bin Laden’s Fortune

At the same time, other investigations were carried out to determine the importance of Osama Bin Laden’s fortune, the alleged author of the terrorist attacks, and locate the financial societies he controlled. Graduated in Management and Economy from King Abdul Aziz University, Osama Bin Laden is a very clever businessman. In 1979, his tutor, Prince Turki al Fayçal al Saud (by then, director of Saudi Arabia secret services from 1977 to August 2001), asked him to direct and financially manage the CIA secret operations in Afghanistan. In a few years, the CIA invested 2 billion dollars in Afghanistan to provoke the failure of the USSR’s invasion. This has been the most expensive secret operation ever made by the American espionage agency. It was unique in history.

In 1994, while Ben Laden had become America’s number one enemy and Saudi Arabia had divested him of his nationality, Osama Bin Laden inherited about 300 million dollars, his part from family society Saudi Binladen Group SBG. [5] This holding, the most important one of Saudi Arabia, made half of its total money from construction and public works, and the other half came from engineering, real states, distributions, telecommunications and edition.

SBG founded also an investment Swiss society, the SICO (Saudi Investment Company) which at the same time founded other societies with the National Commercial Bank of Saudi Arabia affiliates. The SBG also has important interests in General Electric, Nortel Networks and Cadbury Schweppes. SBG’s industrial activities are represented in the United States by Adnan Khashoggi (former brother in law of Mohammed al Fayçal) whereas its financial capitals are managed by the Carlyle Group. Up to 1996, SBG’s affiliates’ legalization was prepared in Lausanne (Switzerland) by its adviser, Nazi banker Francois Genoud -picture to the right. [6]

SGB was also much linked to the Wahhabi regimen, the ruling regimen in Saudi Arabia, and was the only company hired to build the sacred sites of the kingdom, Medina and the Mecca. Likewise, it also had most of BTP contracts for the construction of American military bases in Saudi Arabia and for the reconstruction of Kuwait after the Gulf War. The SGB was founded in 1931 by the Patriarch, the sheikh Mohammed Ben Laden. After his death in 1968, his oldest son Salem succeeded him. But Salem died in a “plane crash” in Texas, United States, in 1988. Today, the SBG is managed by Bark, the second son of the founder.

But, despite the fact that the SBG has stated it had no contacts with Osama Bin Laden since 1994, many authors and experts have established the difference between the positive law and the costume law. For them, the fundamentalist leader still has his moral authority and gets his part of the money too.

Osama Bin Laden [7] invested his inheritance in founding several banks, food and agriculture societies and the distribution of Sudan. Among these companies, Osama Bin Laden invested 50 million dollars in the Al-Shamal Islamic Bank in which Tadamon Islamic Bank (logo to the lower right) is a reference shareholder.

GIF - 3 kb

Due to this financial overlapping, Osama Bin Laden became the business partner of the Minister of Social Affairs of the United Arab Emirates and of the Dar al-Maal al Islami, which prince Mamad Al Faisal uses to finance the group of movements, associations and the Wahhabis of the world on behalf of Saudi Arabia. Osama Bin Laden also has important interests in the Dubai Islamic Bank of Mohammed Khalfan Ben Kharbash, minister of finance of the United Arab Emirates.

Assisted at the beginning by Colonel Omar Asan el-Bechir, and later by Hassan el-Tourabi, Osama Bin Laden was able to develop several companies in Sudan by building an airport, freeways, a pipeline and controlling most of the production of the Arabic gum. But, despite all this, he was expelled out of Sudan in 1996. It was suspected Osama Bin Laden had been a shareholder of Al-Shifa pharmaceutical lab bombed by Clinton in 1998 for the allegedly production of chemical weapons. It’s been also believed Osama Bin Laden had a leading role in the international trade of opium where Afghanistan is the major producer.

Osama Bin Laden has had a spiritual authority upon the powerful Muslim charitable associations, especially the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO) and the foundation of King Fahd’s brother in law, the Abdul Aziz al Ibrahim. If we add to his fortune the stock of weapons he might have kept from the first war in Afghanistan, Osama Bin Laden’s fortune could be assessed between 300 and 500 million dollars, a figure quite different from the 6 billion dollars some political personalities have said he has. Anyway, up to now, there has been no evidence to prove the possible links between the societies controlled by fundamentalist leader Osama Bin Laden and the perpetrators of the September 11 «financial crime».

The Financial Partners of Osama Bin Laden

JPEG - 10.4 kb

Two well-known personalities have been omnipresent in Osama Bin Laden’s societies: the sheik Khaled Salim Ben Mahfouz and Saleh Idris. According to Forbes Magazine, Khaled Ben Mahfouz is ranked 251 among the richest of the world with a fortune assessed 1.9 billion dollars. His father founded the main bank of Saudi Arabia, the National Commercial Bank (picture -the headquarters of the NCB is in Djeddah) which founded several societies with the Bin Laden Group’s SICO. Mahfouz’ sister married Osama Bin Laden. [8] Up to 1996, the Bin Mahfouz and the Bin Laden benefited from the services and advises of Francois Genoud for the establishment of their financial subsidiaries.

Khaled Ben Mahfouz has a residence in Houston, Texas, and with the support of the Bush family, he bought part of the city airport for his personal business. He also has many societies world wide. Despite being a usual and trade partner of Osama Bin laden, Khaled Ben Mahfouz is a much respected businessman in the most important Stocks of the world. This is an important element for he was also involved in a huge banking scandal at the beginning of the 90s: the «crack» case or BCCI’s bankruptcy -see the report. [9] The Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) was an Anglo-Pakistani institution with subsidiaries in 73 countries. It was controlled by three powerful families: the Gokal (Pakistan), the Ben Mahfouz (Saudi Arabia) and the Geith Pharaon (Abu Dhabi). This bank was used by Ronald Reagan to bribe and corrupt the Iranian government so that it would delay the liberation of the American hostages from Teheran embassy. The purpose was to sabotage and discredit the end of Jimmy Carter’s presidency (Operation “October Surprise”). Later, sponsored by the former director of the CIA and Vice-president George Bush (father), the Reagan Administration used again the BCCI to transfer its contributions to the “Contras” in Nicaragua as well as the CIA money for the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan that fought the Soviet Union and communism.

The BCCI was also involved in the arms traffic of Syrian “trader” Sarkis Sarkenalian, in the Keatinga scandal in the United States, in the affairs of “trader” Marc Rich and the funding of group Abu Nidal, etc. All in all, the BCCI had serious problems when it was found out that it laundered money from the Medellin Cartel. When it was finally closed, the BCCI divested from their savings million of clients in the world who could never get their money back.

GIF - 7.7 kb

It is true the BCCI was manipulated but to think the bank was founded by the CIA must not surprise us. There is an old banking tradition in the American secret services since the foundation of the OSS by business attorneys and Wall Street stockbrokers. Two former directors of the CIA, Richard Helms and William Casey, worked for the BCCI, as well as CIA influent prestigious agents Adnan Khashoggi and Manucher Ghobanifar (the main traders of the Irangate), not to mention Kamal Adham (brother in law of King Fayçal and chief of Saudi Arabia secret services until 1977), prince Turki al-Fayçal al-Saud (chief of Saudi Arabia secret services until August 2001) and Abdul Khalil (deputy director of the said secret services).

The BCCI worked closely with SICO, [10] a Swiss affiliate of Saudi Bin Laden Group investments. Among the main managers of SICO we have Osama Bin Laden’s half-brother, Yeslam Bin Laden, who was recently granted the Swiss nationality and lives nowadays in Geneva. A year before its bankruptcy, the BCCI was used to make a huge illegal enrichment operation for George W. Bush son, the current President of the United States, when he was the manager of a small oil society called Harken Energy Corporation. Harken got the oil concessions of the state of Bahrain as part of a commission for the American-Kuwaiti contracts negotiated by President George Bush father. [11] Khaled Bin Mahfouz was a shareholder of Harken with 11.5%. His shares were “taken” to one of his representatives, Abdullah Taha Bakhsh. On his side, one of Osama Bin Laden’s brothers, Salem, was one of the representatives of the Board of Directors of Harken Company through his American representative James R. Bath.

Accused as the main responsible for BCCI’s bankruptcy, Khaled Bin Mahfouz was sentenced by the American justice in 1992. However, he was able to get rid of the accusations against him in 1995 due to a 245 million dollars agreement with his financial partners. On his part, Saleh Idris, director of the Saudi Sudanese Bank which was only a Sudanese subsidiary of Khaled Ben Mahfouz’ National Commercial Bank, was Osama Bin Laden’s partner in the pharmaceutical plant of Al-Shifa. In England, Saled Idris has been IES Digital Systems’ major shareholder, an important company which produces high-tech materials of electronic surveillance. Lately, Baroness Cox has been surprised in the House of Lords for IES Digital Systems guarantees the protection of the most sensitive and strategic British governmental and military sites. [12]

From BCCI to the Carlyle Group

BCCI’s main responsible and clients are found today in the Carlyle Group, an investment fund in administration specialized in the management of financial capitals. It was created in 1987, for years before BCCI bankruptcy. Currently, Carlyle manages 12 billion dollars and has major shares in Seven Up (which also bottles the Cadbury Schweppes), Federal Data Corporation (which equipped the Federal Aviation Administration and its system of civil air traffic surveillance) and the United Defense Industries Inc. (the main military supplier of the American, Turkish and Saudi Arabic armies). Through the companies it controls and manages, the Carlyle Group is the 11 among the American arms companies.

GIF - 1.9 kb

In 1990, the Carlyle Group was accused of funds extortion. A lobbyist of the Republican Party, Wayne Bernman, had “racketed” the pension funds of the American retirees to finance the Bushes electoral campaigns. One of the persons in charge of the said funds accepted to give a million dollars to the Carlyle Group in order to get a public contract in the state of Connecticut. The Carlyle Group manages the most important part of the Saudi Bin Laden Group financial funds. Among its managers, we have Sami Mubarak Brama, the representative in Great Britain of the Khaled Ben Mahfouz and Talat Othmann, a former manager of the Harken Energy Corporation, the society that helped George W. Bush to become rich illegally.

The Carlyle Group is managed by Frank C. Carlucci (former deputy director of the CIA and later Secretary of Defense) who is advised by James A. Baker III (President Reagan former chief of staff, later Secretary of the Treasury and then Secretary of State of George Bush father). Another adviser is Richard Darman (former Budget Director). Contrary to what the whole world think, Osama Bin Laden has been not only a CIA intermediary hired to fight the Arab nationalism and the Soviet Union when it invaded Afghanistan, thus raising the radical Islamism, but still, he and his family are one of the main financial partners of the Bush family.

If as some American official think, the Bin Laden family maintains its relations with Osama Bin Laden and finances his political activities then, the Carlyle Group which manages the millionaire funds of the Saudi Bin Laden Group would be involved in the financial crime. Consequently, Bush father would then be one of the luckiest who benefited from the speculative schemes of September 11, 2001.

Israeli Government Cartoon Mocks Foreign Coverage of Gaza

As part of Israel’s intensifying effort to undermine potential criticism from the United Nations of its military assault on Gaza last summer, the country’s Foreign Ministry released an animated YouTube video on Monday mocking coverage of the conflict by Western reporters as absurdly inaccurate.

An Israeli cartoon on the supposed blindness of foreign correspondents to the faults of Hamas. Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, via Euronews

The 50-second cartoon broadside, produced by the ministry and featured on its website, portrays a blond, American-accented foreign correspondent as such a dunce that he reports breezily from Gaza that “there are no terrorists here, just ordinary people,” as a masked militant launches a rocket from a residential neighborhood right behind him.

In a second scene, the reporter is pictured in what he calls “Gaza’s underground city, a fascinating attempt by Hamas to build a subway system,” as a series of heavily armed militants march in the direction of Israel past a sign reading, “Minimum: 8 Terrorists Per Tunnel.”

The animation then shows a militant arresting a man standing under a rainbow-colored flag as the clueless correspondent tells his viewers that “there is no doubt that the Palestinian society here is liberal and pluralistic, and that Hamas allows everyone to live in dignity.”

Finally, a camerawoman steps into frame to hand the reporter a pair of glasses, saying, “Here, maybe now you’ll see the reality of life under Hamas rule.” The shocked journalist then looks around and suddenly collapses.

Continue reading the main story

The public service announcement aimed at the press corps concludes with the admonishment: “Open your eyes: terror rules Gaza.”

The Foreign Press Association in Tel Aviv was not amused by the video. The group said in a statement that it was “surprised and alarmed by the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s decision to produce a cartoon mocking the foreign media’s coverage of last year’s war in Gaza.”

“Posting misleading and poorly conceived videos on YouTube,” the journalists added, “is inappropriate, unhelpful and undermines the ministry, which says it respects the foreign press and its freedom to work in Gaza.”

Emmanuel Nahshon, the spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, said in a telephone interview that there was no need for reporters to take offense at what was merely “an attempt to poke gentle fun at some journalists who choose not to see reality.”

“The fact that this little movie is creating a debate means it did touch a raw nerve,” he added.

Mr. Nahshon also suggested that one part of the video was inspired by what he called the fact that unnamed foreign correspondents reporting from Gaza during the conflict had observed Hamas militants launching rockets at Israel but “released the footage only after the operation was over.”

Israeli officials have repeatedly made this claim without citing any specific example. Although an Indian television crew did wait until its members had left Gaza last August to broadcast footage of Islamist militants preparing to fire rockets at Israel from a densely populated civilian area, that video did air while the conflict was still going on.

Reporters who worked in Gaza have disputed the notion that they witnessed and did not report on Hamas firing rockets.

Tyler Hicks, a New York Times staff photographer who covered Gaza during the first two weeks of the conflict last summer explained at the time that the Hamas side of the war was “fought largely behind the scenes.”

“Hamas fighters are not able to expose themselves,” he told The Times’ Lens blog last August. “If they were to even step a foot on the street they would be spotted by an Israeli drone and immediately blown up. We don’t see those fighters. They are operating out of buildings and homes and at night.”

“If we had access to them, we would be photographing them,” he added. “I never saw a single device for launching the rockets to Israel.”

“I can assure you it wasn’t meant as an insult, but as a point of reflection in a humorous way,” Mr. Nahshon said. “Between Israeli humor and Hamas death threats, Israeli humor is always preferable.”

There is some evidence, however, that what officials see as no more than an attempt to get more favorable coverage of Israel by applying pressure to the referees of global opinion can make the job of reporting on the conflict more difficult.

As tensions, and the death toll, escalated last summer, the press association condemnedwhat it called “deliberate official and unofficial incitement against journalists” who watched the bombardment alongside Israeli civilians, including “forcible attempts to prevent journalists and TV crews from carrying out their news assignments.”

This is not the first time Israel has resorted to satirical fiction, or animation, to bolster its case that the foreign press is hopelessly naïve when it comes to reporting on the flaws of Hamas or pro-Palestinian activists.

Apparently concerned about the country’s image in the West after the Gaza war of 2008-9, during which foreign correspondents in Israel were prevented from entering the Palestinian territory, the government’s ministry of Hasbara — responsible for what Israel calls public diplomacyand its critics call propaganda — produced a series of satirical news reportsthe following year mocking hopelessly misguided British, French and Spanish correspondents.

A satirical news report, mocking British coverage of Israel, made for an Israeli government campaign in 2010. Masbirim, via YouTube

The sketch mocking British coverage of Israel pictured a reporter in a desert landscape (mis)informing viewers back home about the nature of life in Israel. “The camel is a typical Israeli animal used by the Israelis to travel from place to place in the desert where they live,” the reporter intoned. “It is the means of transport for water, merchandise and ammunition. It is even used by the Israeli cavalry.”

A second ad in the 2010 campaign, called “Explaining Israel,” showed a French journalist mistaking a display of fireworks and an air show on Israel’s national holiday for “the sounds of war.”

The series concluded with a confused Spanish reporter at a barbecuereporting that “most Israeli homes don’t have electricity or gas, so they use ancient cooking methods, like meat roasted on charcoal.”

After another wave of bad publicity later that year, when Israeli commandos shot and killed nine pro-Palestinian activists in a Turkish-led flotilla challenging Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza, Israeli officials drew attention to what they said was a damning indictment on YouTube of the homophobia of the groups behind the flotilla. That video showed a man claiming to be a gay Israeli video blogger who described his disenchantment with the supposed bigotry of the flotilla activists. The apparently confessional video, however, was quickly exposed as a hoax, a work of fiction; the blogger turned out to be an Israeli actor, who has repeatedly refused to explain why he made the video.

“Finding Omer: Escape And Control,” a 2012 video report by the British journalist Jon Ronson on an Israeli hoax. EscapeAndControl, via YouTube

In late 2012, after another Israeli offensive in Gaza, the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem encouraged its followers on social networks to share another animation, produced by the Israeli advertising firm Srutonim, or Scratch.

That cartoon, “Terror in School,” depicted Israelis as the blameless victims of bullying and assault by Palestinians. At the end of the animated fable, a Palestinian child who relentlessly provoked an Israeli child is described as a victim by the uncritical foreign press.

Taken as a whole, the latest video, like its predecessors, would seem to raise the question of why, if wildly inaccurate, comically misinformed reports on the conflict from foreign correspondents are so common, Israeli officials cannot simply point to actual examples but instead find it necessary to resort to fiction again and again to illustrate this reality.

A second question, asked by some members of the foreign press corps on Monday, is how, exactly, insulting them is likely to help Israeli officials get a more receptive hearing.

Asked if he thought the cartoon would help or hinder the ministry in its efforts to win over reporters before the release of a United Nations Human Rights Council report on the latest Gaza conflict, Mr. Nahshon said the idea was “not to annoy or embarrass the foreign media in Israel but to send a message that the reality is clear and some choose to ignore it.”

(UPDATE | June 21: After a week of criticism, the cartoon was removedfrom YouTube and the Foreign Ministry’s website.)

America’s War of Terror against Real Democracy: Assad Must Stay!

In its regime-change, “Assad Must Go!”, anti-humanitarian war against Syria, the Canadian government is using public funds to support war, poverty, and unspeakable misery.

As Prof. Chossudovsky notes in the Forward to Voices from Syria:

“Everybody in Syria knows that Washington is behind the terrorists, that they are financed by the U.S (at tax payers’ expense) and its allies, trained and recruited by America’s Middle East partners. Saudi Arabia, Qatar have been financing and training the ISIS-Daesh, al Nusra terrorists on behalf of the United States. Israel is harboring the terrorists out of the occupied Golan Heights, NATO in liaison with the Turkish high command has since March 2011 been involved in coordinating the recruitment of the jihadist fighters dispatched to Syria …”1

By supporting a war of terror beneath the lies of “humanitarianism”, we are agents for an overseas holocaust, but we are also agents for misogyny, human exploitation, environmental and economic devastation, poverty, disease, totalitarian oligarch rule and a long list of war-imposed evils. In fact, the aggressive warfare to which Canada is committed is anti-Life by any measure.

Peace-activist Janice Kortkamp recently visited Al Mayadeen, — liberated by the Syrian Arab Army, and described as the “economic capital of ISIS” — where she witnessed Empire’s foot print at its finest.

Kortkamp and her friends, pictured below, are standing beneath a sign which dictates the dress-code for females living in the (previously) Daesh-controlled area.

In a journal entry, Kortkamp added:

… (t)he women had complied with the laws to cover up yet were severely beaten if they dared look at a man. Children were not allowed to go to school. People were starved while terrorist fighters feasted on hoarded food.2

This is what Canadian “progressives”, “feminists”, and “human rights defenders” are supporting when they support Canada’s war on Syria.3 In fact, all Canadians are supporting this when we pay our taxes.

Silence is complicity.

A Guide to Mainstream Media ‘Fake News’ War Propaganda

1 BANNER - Fake News Week
In response to the establishment media’s contrived ‘fake news’ crisis designed to marginalise independent and alternative media sources of news and analysis, 21WIRE is running its own #FakeNewsWeek campaign, where each day our editorial team at 21st Century Wire will feature media critiques and analysis of mainstream corporate media coverage of current events – exposing the government and the mainstream media as the real purveyors of ‘fake news’ throughout modern history…

1 Fake News Leaders copy

Patrick Henningsen
21st Century Wire

 As mainstream media pundits, government officials and Silicon Valley technocrats continue the alarmist crusade over the perceived scourge of ‘fake news’ circulating on social media, their misplaced obsession belies the fact that the government-media complex has long been waging its own private disinformation war, against the global public. 

As the establishment continues its attempt to discredit alternative sources of information through its fake news faux crisis, it’s clear that some corporate media moguls would like to turn back the clock – back to the days when a handful of powerful institutions enjoyed a complete monopoly over the production of news and dissemination of information. For at least the last century and half, this tightly-controlled information syndicate has been able to manufacture a type of consensus reality. By channeling public opinion in this way, the establishment has used the mainstream press to facilitate a number of engineered outcomes – including war.

More than ever, it’s important to highlight how for many decades, these same media organizations, including the most respected brands in western mainstream media, have been the driving force behind some of most deceptive reporting and militaristic propaganda campaigns which have enabled the conditions for violent conflict worldwide. These acts of media malice have contributed to the unnecessary deaths of countless innocent people.

Undoubtedly, many who work in the media will not see it that way, but history speaks for itself.

Here are but a few of the greatest war propaganda deceptions of all-time – brought to you by the establishment’s own mainstream media. Here are the real consequences of fake news…

‘Remember the Maine!’

War propaganda is as old as the media itself.

In the winter of 1898, a terrible incident befell America after the USS Maine, one of its flagship Naval vessels had sunk following an unexplained explosion in Havana harbor in Cuba. Afterwards some leading US newspapers took advantage of the confusion and emotive nature of the story, including William Randolph Hearst’s New York Journal and its racy sister publication, the Evening Journal, and also Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World, blaming the incident on Spanish saboteurs. Shortly afterwards, the US entered the Spanish-American War in order to capture Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Philippines. This practice of over-reporting and embellishing a story to stir public outrage became known as “yellow journalism” – a badge proudly worn by Hearst in his day. Certainly, Hearst was well ahead of his time in believing media outlets should insert themselves into events in order to affect political outcomes on behalf on the government. One year earlier in 1897, Hearst’s New York World [1] opined the doctrine of “journalism of action” which meant that a newspaper should inject itself into public life, in order to “fitly render any public service within its power.”

Are things really much different today?

The Gulf of Tonkin Deception

On August 4, 1964, a joint US Navy patrol ran into bad weather off the coast of Vietnam, causing problems with US radar and sonar, at a time when heightened tensions in the region had placed the US national security team on red alert. Amid the confusion, some US agent or official, either in the CIA, the NSA or the Pentagon national security structure – circulated a false report that the US Navy vessels and planes were under attack from North Vietnamese patrol attack boats in international waters in the Gulf of Tonkin. The next day, President Lyndon B. Johnson appeared on national television to announce[2] his intent to retaliate against North Vietnamese targets, stating, “Repeated acts of violence against the armed forces of the United States must be met not only with alert defense, but with positive reply. The reply is being given as I speak to you tonight.” The infamous event came to known as ‘The Gulf of Tonkin Incident.’ Despite the fact that there were obvious discrepancies in some of the government account of events, the mainstream media accepted the government’s fake story without question. With the media providing public relations backing, Washington was then able to take the next step and declared War on Vietnam, albeit on false pretenses. This was the beginning of a 10 year-long bloody conflict which saw 55,000 US servicemen killed and 250,000 injured and maimed, along with over 1 million Vietnamese killed.

The First Gulf War 

It seems that Saddam Hussein’s incursion in neighboring Kuwait wasn’t enough to justify this historic US military operation because the first Gulf War, or ‘Persian Gulf War’ featured a number of fabricated and fake reports produced or circulated by the corporate mainstream media.

On October 10th, 1990, 15 year-old Nayirah al-Ṣabah, daughter of Saud bin Nasir Al-Sabah (the Kuwaiti ambassador to the US) provided a tearful testimony in front of the mainstream media TV cameras, recounting alleged human rights abuses in front of a US Congressional Committee. The Kuwaiti teenager claimed that Iraqi soldiers took hundreds of babies out of incubators in a Kuwaiti hospital during the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. Her dramatic testimony later turned out to be completely false.

During the 1990-1991 Gulf War when a leaked clip showed how CNN had constructed a fake blue screen studio set-up to give a false impression that reporters like Charles Jaco were at alternative locations, including a live sound stage used to simulate missile attacks in Saudi Arabia complete with fake date palm trees. This was also the first war where US cable TV provided the bulk of 24 hour mainstream media propaganda promoting every aspect of America’s military operation, led by CNN. Since then, CNN has become the Pentagon’s premier military and war propaganda outlet in the US.

Kosovo ‘Genocide’

After the Rwanda massacres of 1994, the ‘genocide’ alarm has become a tried and true tool used by western media outlets in order to expedite a ‘humanitarian intervention’ under the banner of R2P (Responsibility to Protect). As the narrative commonly goes, because the US “did not act” in 1994, over 500,000 Tutsis were killed in Rwanda. Granted, the desire to intervene in such a tragedy is born out of compassion and concern for humanity, but when the term ‘genocide’ is casually tossed about in the media in order to invoke an emotional reaction of public outrage, then the media risks stripping the term of its real meaning, and its potency as a call to humanity.

From 1998-1999, the US and Europe under the operational banner of NATO – backed the Kosovan Liberation Army (KLA) ‘rebel’ fighters from the Kosovo region of Yugoslavia in a proxy war against the military forces of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. With the help of NATO intelligence and military assets, the KLA began attacks on police and Yugoslavian government facilities in Kosovo, which led to an increased presence of Serb paramilitaries and ‘regular forces’ who then began targeting KLA personnel and political sympathisers, as well as political opponents. It is estimated that during this initial period of fighting, Federal forces killed some 1,500 to 2,000 civilians and KLA combatants. From here, the conflict or “civil war” as it was portrayed in the Western mainstream media, began to escalate dramatically and with that, a flurry of alarmist and sensational western media reporting.

Justin Raimondo, independent journalist and editor of reported back in 2000:

“The headline in the London Guardian [18 Aug. 2000] was really a bit of an understatement: “Serb killings ‘exaggerated’ by West.” The subhead, however, underscored the enormity of the lie: “Claims of up to 100,000 ethnic Albanians massacred in Kosovo revised to under 3,000 as exhumations near end.” Think of what this has to mean: Madeleine Albright, James Rubin, and Jamie Shea didn’t pull this off single-handedly. Not only the US government, but the worldwide media fabricated a “genocide” and, on that basis, launched a savage war against a sovereign nation that had never attacked us, in the name of “humanitarianism – a war, I might add, that was stopped but has not ended.”

Raimondo continues, “Where are the bodies, all 100,000 of them? This became the task of the “war crimes experts,” as the Guardian describes them: to produce what never existed in the first place – a task that naturally had to end in failure. The Guardian reports:

“As war crimes experts from Britain and other countries prepare to wind down the exhumation of hundreds of graves in Kosovo on behalf of the UN’s International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in the Hague, officials concede they have not borne out the worst wartime reports. These were given by refugees and repeated by western government spokesmen during the campaign. They talked of indiscriminate killings and as many as 100,000 civilians missing or taken out of refugee columns by the Serbs.”

As the standard progression goes, on the back of the humanitarian outrage which was playing out in the western media, the west soon demanded a “No Fly Zone’ over Kosovo and parts of Yugoslavia. In the end, it decided to proceed unilaterally, outside of the remit of international law, and in true Matador fashion – the western press offered no resistance at all. Journalist Lewis MacKenzie of the Globe and Mail explains:

“In 1999, with NATO celebrating its 50th anniversary and no enemy in sight to justify its existence, it sought a new role and solicited a UN resolution to establish a no-fly zone over Serbia/Kosovo – the scene of a civil conflict in the latter, with involvement of the former. When it proved impossible for the UN Security Council to approve such a resolution, NATO, in a highly questionable and arguably illegal move, commenced bombing a sovereign nation, the former Yugoslavia (Serbia/Kosovo). Justification, it was argued, was provided by a dated, no-longer-applicable UN resolution that provided for a no-fly zone to protect European Union monitors in Kosovo. The fact that the EU monitors were no longer deployed in Kosovo was conveniently ignored. What followed was an all-out bombing campaign against the infrastructure of the former Yugoslavia, all under the guise of enforcing a “no-fly zone.” The term was beginning to get a bad reputation.”

By the end of the war, you could see a clear process had been formalized – the production and dissemination of disinformation between government departments, political leaders and mainstream media outlets – in order to steadily advance a war agenda.’s Raimondo concludes:

“It was lies, all lies, from beginning to end. They may have originated from government sources, in most cases, but in spreading these lies far and wide the Western media were more than willing accomplices. Keeping in mind that over 5,000 civilians were slaughtered in the NATO air strikes, the ladies and gentlemen of the Fourth Estate might fairly be characterized as Madeleine’s willing executioners. This is a takeoff, of course, on the favored phrase of the New Republic wing of the War Party, which condemns the entire Serb nation as “Milosevic’s willing executioners.” Based on the myth of an Albanian Kosovar “holocaust” perpetrated by the Serbs, not only Milosevic and his regime but the entire Serbian people are condemned as being no better than the “good Germans” who voted Hitler into power and tacitly supported the Holocaust. Here was classic war propaganda, on a par with stories of Belgian babies impaled on German bayonets during World War I and tall tales told during the Gulf war of babies dumped out of incubators and gasping for breath on the floor of a Kuwaiti hospital. The idea is to get public opinion behind the complete subjugation and “reeducation” of the Serbian people, utilizing the postwar German model.”

It has to be mentioned also, that one of the leading agents of disinformation in NATO’s Kosovo operation was CNN’s ‘war correspondent’ Christiane Amanpour, whom Raimondo singles out as a key purveyor fake news that moulded public opinion enough to allow the war to escalate on schedule for NATO:

“In the case of the Kosovo war, the retreat has already begun. Far too late to help the victims of the vicious “Allied” air war: they are dead and buried, or else mutilated beyond repair. Yet we are still waiting for some acknowledgment – aside from a few stories in overseas newspapers – from the media that they were wrong. After endless horror stories illustrated with fantastically high death tolls were aired day after day on CNN, when will we hear a retraction? Christiane Amanpour repeated her husband’s lies with a perfectly straight face: tens of thousands slaughtered, we were told, and the murderous drug-dealing KLA were really “freedom fighters,” the Albanian equivalent of George Washington and his Continental Army! Journalists didn’t question the government line about alleged Serbian “genocide”: instead they wanted to know if the President would send in the ground troops – and if not, why not?”

Incredibly, we would see a near repeat of this planned model again in Syria.

Osama Bin Laden: A Mythology of Convenience  

A really big lie which was already baked into the official 9/11 narrative: “The terrorist known as Osama bin Laden carried out the 9/11 attacks and he is being given shelter in the nation of Afghanistan. If the Taliban government does not hand over this fugitive, then the US will have no choice but to retaliate against Afghanistan.” Kabul then asked if the US would provide evidence that bin Laden was indeed responsible for the spectacular attacks. This request was ignored by US authorities, but Washington’s ignorance paled in comparison to the mainstream media’s collective inability to follow-up on this, the most crucial piece in the story. In reality, the US was not going to wait for answers, or for the illusive bin Laden to appear. Washington had already mapped out its ‘strategic’ targets and scrambled its long-range stealth bombers. Assets were being mobilized and a new war began as ‘Operation Enduring Freedom’ launched on October 7, 2001.  Some 15 years later, the Afghans are still having to endure the Pentagon’s version of freedom, as US-led forces are still occupying and controlling large regions of the country, but doing so conveniently under a NATO banner. To understand the scale and scope of the Afghanistan lie, consider the following:  In 2006, the Muckraker Report [3] contacted FBI Headquarters to inquire why Bin Laden’s “Most Wanted” poster did not indicate any connection to 9/11. When asked why, the FBI official stated that, “The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.” You’d think that would have been the big scoop, for some investigative journalist working at the New York Times, or the Washington Post. Instead, the press simply fell into line with the official narrative memo issue by the Bush Administration.

Beyond all this however, a bigger media failure which still continues to this day, is the total redaction of the fact that Obama Bin Laden was an intelligence asset of the CIA since the 1980’s during Operation Cyclone (among others) which facilitated a US policy of funding, training and arming a radical Islamist Mujahideen ‘rebels.’ Sound familiar?

The Media’s WMD Deception in Iraq

In March 2003, on the eve of the Iraq War, US and UK government officials had managed to convince their respective mainstream media cadres that Iraq’s Saddam Hussein was harboring massive stockpiles of chemical weapons which came to be commonly known as “Weapons of Mass Destruction.” Despite repeated assurances by UN weapons inspectors and long-time US weapons experts on the ground like Scott Ritter, both President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair appeared to have already made up their minds that Saddam was hiding vast stores of deadly munitions and therefore a US-led invasion was a fait accompli. Despite the fact  they had no proof or actual evidence, the press didn’t seem to mind because they were “very confident” about the “intelligence.” The White House then dispatched Secretary of State Colin Powell to the United Nations in New York where he regurgitated a made-up story about Saddam Hussein’s deadly mobile anthrax labs, aka “The Winnebagos of Death” [4]. Yes, it sounded completely crazy to millions of intelligent, normal people at the time, and yet – it was good enough for the mainstream media circa 2002 – 2003.

Aside from CNN, ABC, and NBC’s complete allegiance to the government’s fraudulent war effort, America’s once vaunted ‘papers of record,’ The New York Times and The Washington Post, helped endlessly in republishing government-issued fictional accounts. One journalist in particular, Judith Miller from the New York Times, managed to dupe the public by citing the same ‘sources’, like disgraced Iraqi dissident Ahmed Chalabi, that were feeding the US intelligence community false information about Iraq’s supposed stockpiles of WMDs.

The New York Times Later admitted that many of Miller’s stories were false. Still, the damage was already done. The result of this government-media complex campaign of actual fake news: 1 million dead Iraqis, thousands of dead US servicemen, tens of thousands wounded and maimed, along with trillions of US taxpayer funds spent – an open bill which continues to this day.

Miller has since been rewarded for her patriotic efforts with a job at FOX News.

The Planned Take-Down of Libya

Next was a revamp of the Iraq narrative, this time spear-headed by the new liberal ‘humanitarian interventionists,’ led by America’s Barack Obama and France’s Nicholas Sarkozy against Libya in 2010 and again, under cover of the NATO flag. To get the ball rolling, western politicians and the media tried to conflate a perception of political and armed dissent in Libya as part of the wider ‘Arab Spring’ movement, while simultaneously calling for the support of armed opposition groups on the ground.

In 2011, after working behind the scenes helping to organize, arm and equip militant Jihadis fighters and rebel operatives in Libya, the Obama Administration, led by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, desperately needed an excuse to ground the Libyan Air Force in order that NATO-backed Jihadi fighters on the ground could successfully overthrow the government of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. The most direct route to achieve air superiority would be to implement a ‘No Fly Zone’ over Libya, but with the public relations scars still fresh from the Iraq debacle, Presidents Obama and Sarkozy knew that a No Fly Zone needed broad international support and therefore had to be done through the United Nations. In order to get the global public behind the campaign, a series of fake news stories were concocted by the US State Department and the mainstream media. The first one was the popular talking point that Gaddafi was using military fighter jets to “gun down peaceful protesters in the streets.” Despite the lack of any proof or evidence that this actually happened, the entire mainstream media in the US and Europe ran with it anyway. This bogus claim became the keystone of the No Fly Zone campaign. Another outlandish tale was that Gaddafi was issuing Viagra to his troops so that they could go out and commit “mass rape” against the women of Libya. This invented story was originally disseminated by Qatari government media outlet Al Jazeera [5], and was specifically designed to help generate more western liberal and left-wing sympathy for a ‘humanitarian intervention’ by NATO, particularly from women in the US and Europe. The key emissary who delivered this fake news item to the public –and gave it credibility, was none other that Obama’s former Ambassador to the UN and National Security Advisor, Susan Rice[6]

The other media lie which was promulgated in partnership with the US political establishment was the myth that ‘Genocide’ was imminent in Libya at the hands of Colonel Gaddafi’s black ‘African Mercenary’ brigade, prompting the routine trope in the the Responsibility to Protect script of, “We must act now, before it’s too late,” and using the ‘Rwanda’ talking point as a marketing call to action.

Writer Maximilian Forte describes how this narrative was constructed:

“Just a few days after the street protests began, on February 21 the very quick to defect Libyan deputy Permanent Representative to the UN, Ibrahim Dabbashi, stated: “We are expecting a real genocide in Tripoli. The airplanes are still bringing mercenaries to the airports”. This is excellent: a myth that is composed of myths. With that statement he linked three key myths together—the role of airports (hence the need for that gateway drug of military intervention: the no-fly zone), the role of “mercenaries” (meaning, simply, black people), and the threat of “genocide” (geared toward the language of the UN’s doctrine of the Responsibility to Protect). As ham-fisted and wholly unsubstantiated as the assertion was, he was clever in cobbling together three ugly myths, one of them grounded in racist discourse and practice that endures to the present, with newer atrocities reported against black Libyan and African migrants on a daily basis. He was not alone in making these assertions. Among others like him, Soliman Bouchuiguir, president of the Libyan League for Human Rights, told Reuters on March 14 that if Gaddafi’s forces reached Benghazi, “there will be a real bloodbath, a massacre like we saw in Rwanda”.[7]

As a result of these and other unfounded ‘human rights’ abuses trumpeted throughout the mainstream media, on March 17, 2011, UN Resolution 1973 was passed by the UN Security Council and the No Fly Zone was then immediately transformed into a US-led mass-bombing campaign of Libya by NATO. It is estimated that 30,000 Libyans were killed through ‘rebel’ ground fighting, artillery and relentless NATO bombing which toppled the Libyan government and to this day, has turned the once stable country into a permanent failed state and a terrorist haven. Looking back, it’s hard to believe that so few questioned these made-up stories, but like with Iraq and so many other wars, the media played their role in propelling the fake news.

Russia’s Phantom Invasion of the Ukraine

As far as the corporate mainstream is concerned, this story is the media’s gold standard of fake news. Not a day goes by in the US media that you don’t hear the need for the US and NATO to “Counter Russian aggression,” alongside the tandem claim that, “Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine,” or “the Russian annexation of Crimea!” and how Moscow is somehow ‘occupying’ the peninsula militarily.

So who is driving this narrative? Once again, leading the way in the collective media construction of the ‘Russian Invasion’ narrative was a familiar rag. In April 20, 2014, a photo was published by the New York Times allegedly from inside Russia showing ‘Russian soldiers’ said to have later appeared in eastern Ukraine. This fake news story created by the New York Times was then sent along the usual disinformation daisy chain, with CNN and others elevating the story into “proof” of nefarious Russian military aggression. This in turn, was then cited by US State Department, and then by hawkish US politicians as the proof required to back a more aggressive policy against Russia. However, the photographer later went on record to state his photo was actually taken inside the Ukraine.

Award-winning investigative journalist Robert Parry [8] explains:

“Two days after the New York Times led its editions with a one-sided article about photos supposedly proving that Russian special forces were behind the popular uprisings in eastern Ukraine, the Times published what you might call a modified, limited retraction.

“Buried deep inside the Wednesday editions (page 9 in my paper), the article by Michael R. Gordon and Andrew E. Kramer two of the three authors from the earlier story has this curious beginning: “A collection of photographs that Ukraine says shows the presence of Russian forces in the eastern part of the country, and which the United States cited as evidence of Russian involvement, has come under scrutiny.”

By that time, the damage had already been done, and the media and political classes were already off and running with the narrative.

So the progression of disinformation is as follows: a mainstream media outlet (usually a ‘credible’ broadsheet like the New York Times or Washington Post) inflate or fabricate a sensational story, which then cascades through broadcast TV and cable news networks, which is then parroted by western political leaders – giving the public a false impression of ‘consensus’ that a said claim is legitimate. This is how western governments achieve what award-winning journalist and filmmaker John Pilger calls “manufacturing consent.”

Bizarrely, one of the key media trigger words to invoke a ‘Russian Invasion’ of the Ukraine is a term known as “little green men.”  This portable term has been used by everyone from NATO General Philip Breedlove, to US Vice President Mike Pence during his presidential debate against Tim Kaine. TASS correspondent Vladimir Zinin describes the term as follows: “The notorious ‘green men’ who appeared in Crimea — they’re like the toy soldiers children play with, without a name or a face. Their past and their future is a cardboard box, which can be opened when it’s time to begin playing a new game.” [6]

Russia’s Little Green Men (Image Credit: FPRI)

John Haines [9] who is a senior fellow at the Cold War era right-wing think tank, Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI), explains the context:

The claimed emergent advantage in asymmetric warfighting — nonlinear war[2] as conceptualized by Russian strategists, sometimes called hybrid warfare — concerns such Western military commanders as General Philip M. Breedlove. “NATO must be prepared for little green men,” those “armed soldiers without insignia that create unrest, occupy government buildings, incite the population,” he said. “Once the green men are there,” General Breedlove warned, “a revolution happens quickly.”[3] A year later he added, “What we see in Russia now in this hybrid approach to war, is the use of all the tools that they have to reach into a nation and cause instability.”[4]

In reality, the little green men could have been a number of actors, from newly formed militia, to local defense forces and yes, even Russian special forces deployed to protect strategic military and logistical assets located over its border on eastern Ukraine. Indeed, this was also cited in Haine’s report:

“In February 2014, the 3rd Guards Spetsnaz Brigade of Russia’s Main Intelligence Director (aka GRU) deployed “for the protection of strategic facilities in Crimea… until the full stabilization of the situation in Ukraine” according to the Regnum news service.[11]

As far as the western media were concerned, it was important to keep the use of this term vague and avoid specifics and context wherever possible.  Still, this popular term could be dropped into the script at any time, and was meant to constitute a Russian Invasion of the Ukraine. It was a colorful comic book-like term, which is probably why the US gravitated towards it with such enthusiasm. In the past, comic book-like characterizations and dumbed-down metaphors have been very effective in convincing the American public to back a war – like Colin Powell’s colorful depiction of “Winnebegos of Death.”

Russia’s ‘Illegal Annexation’ of Crimea

Regarding Crimea, one habitual failure of the western media… is failing to report how on March 16, 2014, an overwhelming majority of Russian-speaking people living in Crimea had actually held a snap nation referendum about whether to remain, or leave the Ukraine. The results were stunning, with 95% voting to leave and rejoin Russia. The majority was impressive, although not surprising considering what was happening in the rest of the Ukraine. Residents only had to take one look at the chaos which was unfolding in Kiev; police and protesters in Maidan Square being shot by unknown and suspected mercenary snipers, western-backed neo-Nazis marauding in the streets, an economy in free fall, as well as talk of Kiev’s military being deployed to hunt down Russian-speaking dissenters in eastern Ukraine. In additional to all this, US officials were present in Kiev actively promoting far right NeoNazi affiliated political groups including the Svoboda and Right Sector parties in the Ukraine led by US Senator John McCain (a fact conveniently ignore by major US media outlets) and others, and all with a hand-picked puppet government installed by Victoria Nuland and the US State Department [10] (all gleefully cheered on by Washington and the EU) in what can only rightly be described as a western-backed coup d’etat and installation of a Putsch regime in Kiev.

The repeated claim by western journalists and politicians that Crimea’s move towards secession was “illegal” is quickly nullified by the fact that the western-backed mob’s occupation of, and setting fire to federal buildings, injuring and killing police, before pushing out democratically elected Viktor Fedorovych Yanukovych at gunpoint – a transition admittedly brokered by the United States – meant that the government in Kiev was neither legal nor constitutional (according the Ukraine’s own legally ratified constitution). The argument could then be made that the government in Kiev was dissolved under duress, and that going forward any claims of legality or otherwise coming out of Kiev, Washington, or Brussels – lack real context, and thus lack real merit. It should be clear to any reasonable observer or mainstream media journalist or pundit looking at the totality of the situation, that Russia did not oust an elected leader, nor did it push the Ukraine towards civil collapse and into a violent civil war  – it was the US and its NATO member state partners (with the backing of the EU) who achieved this transformative feat. Any reasonable media professional should see that.

After seeing this horror unfold, it goes without saying that events in Kiev would have in all likelihood been a main driver in influencing the Crimean people to vote in favor of a new Autonomous Republic of Crimea with a 95% majority, in effect reunifying Crimea with Russia. Yes, that’s right – Crimea was only attached to the Ukraine after 1954, when then Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev transferred Crimea from the Russian Soviet Federation of Socialist Republics (RSFSR) to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (UkrSSR). If one was to apply the western logic that Russia ‘annexed’ Crimea, then you could use that same flawed logic to suggest that West Germany had also annexed East Germany in 1990. An utterly ridiculous claim, and yet, this is what passes for geopolitical analysis in western politics in the 21st century. This is a prime example of how the media’s misappropriation of language and ignorance of history can completely distort a narrative by inverting reality, rather than actually trying to accurately depict it.

As far as western cries of “the Russian military is now in Crimea”, what these struggling pundits also don’t mention is that, long before Washington’s February 2014 color revolt in Kiev, the Russian military has maintained permanent bases in Crimea, including some 30,000 troops and technical support crew members in and around Sevastopol, home of the Russian Black Sea Fleet – since 1783. 

Both mainstream lies – that Russian invaded the Ukraine, and that Russia illegally annexed and is “occupying” Crimea – are responsible for placing the US and Russia on their worst diplomatic footing in 50 years, and inching Russia and NATO towards a possible conflict.

Based on recent history, it would be hard to argue that war-footing is not in the interest of the western military industrial complex, nor that the corporate media are helping to facilitate the public perception of “the threat” which justifies such war-footing.

Syria: An Exercise in Coordinated Corporate Media Deception

Then came Syria. No other modern conflict has been mired in so many competing narratives as Syria has, which continue to this day. Splits on the narratives stretch beyond the mainstream media, and into alternative media circles as well. The global ‘left-wing’, led by President Obama, US Democrats, and R2P liberal interventionists, have opposed any halt to the free flow of arms and ‘rebel’ terrorists from neighboring Turkey and Jordan into Syria, and wholly support a policy of ‘regime change’ – something roundly rejected by the anti-war left previously in Iraq. So the old anti-war party of the left has split into the new pro-war regime change party. This has paved the way for one of the biggest, and darkest festivals of deception in modern times.

Early on in the conflict, and in the spirit of Charles Jaco, CNN’s Anderson Cooper can be seen on-air trying to obfuscate his TV network’s own fakery with British operative, Danny Dayem, playing the role of “Syrian activist” from the city of Homs – after Dayem was caught staging reports with fake sound effects and other contrived elements in order to create the appearance of a “war report” from Syria. Despite this, CNN issued no public apology (and to my knowledge, no one was fired because of it, no surprise there).

Other accusations of mainstream media fakery coming out of Syria’s war theatre include NBC News correspondent Richard Engel’s contrived kidnapping stunt which appeared to be designed to demonize President Assad, UK Channel 4’s unbelievable ‘baby in the incubator‘ story, and last but surely not least – the BBC’s infamous Saving Syria’s Children’ panorama documentary aired on the same day as the UK Parliament was set to vote on military intervention in August 2013.

Undoubtedly, Washington and NATO member states felt confident after their swift success in destabilizing and destroying Libya, to repeat the process in Syria. However, they needed to deploy a series of lies first. Once the contrived Arab Spring in Syria narrative was deployed in the spring of 2011, western liberal interventionist outrage became the order of the day. The talking point then became, ‘We must act to protect this fragile democratic movement and protect the peaceful protesters from the dictator Bashar al Assad.’  As in Libya, western powers, along with financiers Saudi Arabia and Qatar, began flooding the region with weapons and were training and advising armed insurgent fighters [11], with orders to first destabilize Syria, before eventually overthrowing the government in Damascus.

The next big lie was a familiar one – the WMD. The US and UK claimed Syria’s government crossed a ‘red line’ by “using chemical weapons against his own people.” A false flag sarin gas WMD event was staged in East Ghouta, Damascus in August 2013, however, it failed to trigger the necessary declarations of war against Syria by the UK and US governments.

A study by an MIT University professor [12] demonstrated how the event was staged, most likely by US-backed ‘rebels’ embedded there. Since that time, a number of other academics and journalists have exposed the East Ghouta attack as a staged provocation.

Despite repeated failed attempts to pin the chemical weapons war crime on the Syrian government, the western mainstream media continued to rehash and recycle the same ‘WMD’ charges against the Syrian government, as part of a sustained public relations and slanted disinformation campaign which seems to have been spearheaded by the New York Times and others.

The lies didn’t end there. In June 2014, the great terror specter known as Islamic State (ISIS) suddenly appeared in the headlines. A number of questionable videos were permanently fixed on to western media screens, and it wasn’t long before the US had the excuse it needed to deploy its air forces over Syria, presumably to “degrade and destroy ISIS.” After nearly 18 months of bombing by the newly expanded US ‘Coalition’, ISIS was hardly dented, leaving many to suspect that ISIS might very well be a dangerous Trojan horse designed and supported by NATO and Gulf GCC member states. This turned out to be true by all accounts, especially when counting NATO member Turkey’s key role [13] in enabling the movement of arms, supplies and fighters over its border with Syria.

EDITORS NOTE: It has since been confirmed that the US, through the Department of Defense, has organized several tons of weapons used by al Qaeda and ISIS fighters, transported via diplomatic flights landing at Incirlik Air Base in Turkey, and via Saudi Arabia. See the full report here.

Regarding Syria, there were many other lies before and afterwards – too many to mention in fact, but we’ll share just one more. Later in 2016, came the next lie, the supposed, “Siege of Aleppo.” John Kerry and other interventionist cheerleaders were all claiming, “We must act now, to save the innocent residents of Aleppo from a humanitarian disaster.” CNN and others parroted a misleading report issued by Rupert Colville, spokesperson for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, who tried to mischaracterize the liberation of terrorist-occupied East Aleppo as a “meltdown of humanity.” What they, and every mainstream media outlet conveniently failed to mention was that the overwhelming majority of Aleppo residents, 1.5 million of them, were residing in government-protected West Aleppo. East Aleppo had been taken over by western and gulf-backed terrorist ‘rebels’ in 2012 and later dominated by al Qaeda in Syria aka Al Nusra Front, and many of East Aleppo’s remaining 180,000 residents were being held against their will by the occupying terrorists. Indeed, the East side had been under attack by Syrian and Russian forces – attempting to liberate that part of the city. Spun by western media and political leaders, they attempted to get western voters to back saving their “moderate rebels” (who in actuality are western-backed Islamist militants) with another No Fly Zone over northern Syria, and ultimately regime change. Sound familiar?

Dedicated alternative media hounds will still dig relentlessly for the truth, but it’s clear that the issue of Syria has caused some serious fractures. This is partly because of the overwhelming complexity of the conflict, still characterized by the mainstream as a ‘civil war.’  The culpability of mainstream media outlets turned anti-Syria regime change propaganda mills should be obvious by now, with outlets like CNN, NBC, BBC, The New York Times and the Washington Post – all producing around the clock misleading reports from ‘anti-regime activists’ embedded exclusively in terrorist-held areas in Syria. The worst of these has to be the exploitation in western media of the 7 year-old Bana Alabed aka ‘Bana of Aleppo‘ whose Twitter account rose to prominence in September 2016.

Such reports and imagery were designed to generate sympathy towards ‘rebel’ (terrorist) factions and were being supplied to the western media by two US and NATO state funded ‘opposition’ media outlets, the Aleppo Media Centre and the White Helmets.

Another deceptive factor is the emerging trend of pseudo ‘alternative media outlets’ designed to appear as alternatives to the mainstream when in fact they are as establishment as the leading media conglomerate brands. Many of these outlets were disseminating reports furthering the media mythos of the ‘moderate rebel’ in Syria, thus reinforcing the US State Department’s deceptive foreign policy narrative for Syria. The drive for advertising clicks also rewards shallow and sound bite-based ‘news’ coverage, rather than focused, in-depth investigative reporting. Add to this, the proliferation of well-financed pseudo ‘alternative’ media outlets like the Daily Beast (under the umbrella of billionaire and FOX founder Barry Diller)Buzzfeed News (funded by NBC Universal), Vice News (seed funded by FOX), Democracy Now! (funded by the Ford Foundation), The Intercept (funded by billionaire Pierre Omidyar), Alternet (foundation-funded, with past funding by George Soros’s Open Society) – and one can better understand how the narrative was muddled early on with Syria – one of the most important international stories of our generation.

In a belated, desperate attempt to validate five years of media distortions and lies, NATO has recently released a report through its unofficial propaganda arm, The Atlantic Council, dramatically entitled, “Breaking Aleppo which was immediately laundered through mainstream outlets like The New York Times, despite the fact that NATO’s report contains a number of unfounded claims and factual errors.

In terms of fake news and disinformation, the Syrian Conflict set a new benchmark for western war propaganda.

‘The Russian Hack’

In the heat of the US 2016 Presidential Election, a near repeat of the Iraq WMD scam unfolded, only this time the Obama government and the same “intelligence community” generated an official conspiracy theory that Russia had somehow hacked into the US election systems, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and Clinton campaign manager John Podesta’s emails. Backed by the Obama White House, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and the mainstream media pressed ahead on blaming Russia – not just for DNC leaks, but also for hacking into US election systems in Arizona [14] – despite the fact that there was no evidence of either other than innuendo and pure speculation. The media’s coverage on this issue was deceptive from the onset.

In a leading news release, entitled, Russian hackers targeted Arizona election system,” [15]we can see how after the cock-sure headline, the first paragraph would always sound definitive:

“Hackers targeted voter registration systems in Illinois and Arizona, and the FBI alerted Arizona officials in June that Russians were behind the assault on the election system in that state.”

Later in the article, you can see the media walking back the charge to cover themselves for future inquiry:

“It turned out that the hackers had not compromised the state system or even any county system. They had, however, stolen the username and password of a single election official in Gila County.”

Here we can see how the media and the ruling party employed emotive headlines to sell an idea, even though there was nothing in the story at all.

A probable answer to this puzzle was revealed by a local broadcast affiliate WSBTV in Atlanta, who confirmed:

“The Georgia Secretary of State’s office now confirms 10 different cyberattacks on its network all trace back to U.S. Department of Homeland Security IP addresses.”

Not surprisingly, the Georgia report received no traction in the national press.

Is it possible that persons inside the US government were involved in hacking, or probing US election systems? It’s a question worth asking: if domestic federal agencies are hacking US systems, then are our electronic voting systems really secure? Again, you would think that the national media would be keen to follow-up on this promising lead, but instead they ignored it, and opted instead to pursue the elaborate Russian conspiracy theory-plot.

The Russian Hack story was then expanded by the White House and the Democratic Party to claim that Russia actually intervened in the Presidential election on behalf of Donald Trump, thus helping him defeat the odds-on favorite Hillary Clinton. To date, no actual evidence has been produced by the US government to back-up this incredible conspiracy theory.  Interestingly, just as in 2003 with Iraq, the establishment enlisted the help of some of the same media operatives to advance the mainstream’s fake news story. This story, which is likely false, has unnecessarily set back US-Russian relations 30 years to the Cold War era.

In December 2016, a month after the election, former New York Times ‘journalist’ of WMD fame, Judith Miller (now with FOX News), suddenly appeared on the scene [16] to give support to the White House and CIA’s shaky ‘Russian Hack’ narrative. “As Sen. McCain said, it’s pretty clear that the Russians did something,” said Miller. “And it’s pretty clear — according to 17 U.S intelligence agencies — what they did helped Donald Trump.” Another case of MSM déjà vu?

Germany’s ‘ISIS Crisis’

One event on its own does not constitute a crisis, but if the government-media complex is able to line-up a progression, or gestalt sequence of events, then consensus can be manufactured on what constitutes a “state of emergency.”

The year 2016 was one of the most intense years in terms of terrorism stories in Europe, featuring seemingly endless reports of ‘ISIS-inspired’ attacks and incidents in countries like France and Germany. Both far-right and far-left political factions have been feeding off of the instability in Europe, and in almost every case, additional new ‘Police State’ measures have followed each and every ‘terrorist’ incident. Therefor, it’s worth investigating beyond the ‘security headlines’ to find out what actually happened in each of these supposed ‘ISIS-inspired’ incidents.

This appears to be what happened in Germany, as a year-long ‘ISIS crisis’ unfolded in the media – adding to the backdrop for the existing political drama of the Migrant Crisis. It started off in February 2016, after it was reported that a 15-year-old girl identified as ‘Safia S’, had stabbed a policeman in the neck with a kitchen knife during a routine check at Hanover train station, in what German prosecutors claimed was an ‘ISIS-inspired’ attack. Later in May, another incident was initially dubbed by the media as a “ISIS knife attack” because someone claimed that the attacker shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) as he raged aboard a commuter train, although it was later revealed that the event was not terror related at all [17], but rather the work of an unemployed, mentally disturbed drug addict. Nonetheless, the ‘ISIS’ talking point was set into motion, with the emotive media meme already injected into the public consciousness.

A month later came the infamous “ISIS Axe Murder” aboard another German commuter train, injuring 20 people. In this incident, a 17 year-old Afghanistan refugee and asylum seeker living in foster care is alleged to have gone on a violent ‘jihadi’ rampage[18]. This event was initially labeled as an “ISIS” event solely on the basis that (once again) the attacker shouted the now standard domestic terror battle cry, “Allahu Akbar” as he stabbed people. We’ll never know the full story as he was promptly shot dead by police. Afterwards, and rather conveniently, the ‘ISIS media department’ known as “AMAQ” had apparently posted an online declaration that the axe murdering teen was representing their organization and its aims [19]. As is normally the case now, the western media do not vet or question statements made online by ISIS -instead the western media repeat them verbatim. The potential for manipulation here should be obvious, with ISIS assigning credit to anyone or any event they chose – which is then instantly validated by the western media.

Soon after the train incident, came the Munich ‘McDonalds’ Shooter – where 18 year-old Ali David Sonboly is said to have killed 9 people in broad daylight.  Initially, the media tried to paint this also as a ‘jihadi’ and ‘immigrant’ event, only to find out later that the alleged shooter (who shot himself after his alleged shooting spree) was actually a German born and raised, and was part Iranian (not Sunni, or Arab) – and had absolutely no ‘Islamist’ ties [20]. The media initially tried to claim that he also shouted “Allahu Akbar” – while at the same time claiming he shouted anti-immigrant slogans like “f***ing foreigners!”  Coincidentally, this Munich incident took place on the five-year anniversary of another unlikely GLADIO-style event, that of Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik who allegedly shot and killed 77 people as well as set-off a car bomb in Oslo in 2011. Interestingly, Breivik was said to be a right-wing Christian Zionist, and member of a Masonic Lodge, giving the story a stark GLADIO tone.

Days later, a 27 year old Syrian refugee and asylum seeker in Germany was said to have carried out a bizarre “suicide bomb attack” in the German town of Ansbach [21], by allegedly killing himself and injured 12 others after setting off an explosive backpack outside a music festival in that city. Authorities speculated that the 27-year-old’s motive was that he had been denied asylum a year ago, although it was also reported that he was on the mental health authority’s radar after having already established a clear history of making attempts on his own life. Add to this Bavarian Police spokesman Michael Schrotberger who claimed, “If there is an Islamist link or not is purely speculation at this point.” In Germany, rejection of such applications is really the norm rather than the exception. According to Germany’s 2014 statistics, over half of the country’s 80,000 political asylum seekers had their applications rejected.[22]  Regardless of the clear lack of any conclusive evidence connecting the suspect to ISIS, a new mainstream media ‘migrant crisis’ talking point was quickly set into motion, as Bavarian interior minister, Joachim Herrmann declared, “It’s terrible… that someone who came into our country to seek shelter has now committed such a heinous act and injured a large number of people who are at home here, some seriously.” Case closed – it had to be ISIS.

The end result of these and the other supposed ‘ISIS-inspired’ events which followed in 2016, has been massive public outrage and fear in Europe, with the public backing the continual German government support of US-NATO state intervention in Syria, but also a u-turn by German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s previous stance on the issue of immigration. This month, Merkel announced plans to begin deporting migrants from Germany. On its surface, this appears like a 180 degree reversal of her government’s ‘open door’ refugee policy.

These are but a few examples demonstrating what can, and will go wrong when the press blindly accepts the government narrative as gospel (and accepts ISIS-issued media memos), allowing the mainstream media to push out and validate government-approved fake news to an unsuspecting public.

This practice of collusion between the government and corporate media has enabled most major global conflicts which the US and its allies have participated in over the last century or more.

If there’s one thing we can learn from history it’s that absolute power corrupts absolutely. With their monopoly over print and the airwaves, the government-media complex has been able to control what the public believes they know about any given conflict.

Now that their monopoly is broken, we have a chance to break the continuous cycle of planned geopolitical strife and endless warfare – so long as we can keep the truth flowing.

JFK Files Expose CIA Plot to Stage Miami Bombings and Blame Fidel Castro

The files were published as part of the nearly 3,000 documents collected by the U.S. National Archive.


The CIA considered bombing Miami and other cities to create a terror threat while blaming the government of Cuban revolutionary leaderFidel Castro, according to the recently-published “JFK files.”

The files were published as part of the nearly 3,000 documents collected by the U.S. National Archive on the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy and several other issues.

The report said the Central Intelligence Agency, CIA, considered staging several terror events involving Cuban citizens to seek blame for Castro’s government.

“We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington,” the files read.

The plan also included a possible attack on migrants leaving Cuba to settle in the United States.

“We could sink a boatload of Cubans enroute to Florida (real or simulated). We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized.”

The release of 2,891 previously classified files also shed a light on more aggressive tactics by the CIA, which included the placement of bombs and the creation of a terror environment.

“Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of a Cuban agent and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government,” the files went on.

The report also mentions how the CIA tried to assassinate Castro through bodysuits filled with deadly bacteria and explosive seashells planted underwater, taking advantage of the Cuban leader’s taste for diving.

“It was known that Fidel Castro liked to skindive,” the reports said. “The CIA plan was to dust the inside of the suit with a fungus producing madera foot, a disabling and chronic skin disease, and also contaminating the suit with tuberculosis bacilli in the breathing apparatus.”

Finally, the files revealed that after several allegations, investigations showed that the Cuban government wouldn’t have been responsible for killing Kennedy “because such an act, if discovered, would have afforded the United States the excuse to destroy Cuba. The risk would not have been worth it.”




“CIA Lying Performance” Then and Now: The JFK Assassination Versus The CIA’s Obstruction of Justice in 2015

Why CIA’s Richard Helms Lied about Oswald, Part III

Region: 20273062

First published by WhoWhatWhy

Published by Global Research on December 31, 2015

This is a rumination on lies — layer upon layer of lies — told by US intelligence agencies and other officials about what Lee Harvey Oswald, or someone pretending to be him, was allegedly doing in Mexico City just weeks before the Kennedy assassination. The original goal, it seems, was to associate Oswald, in advance of the events of Dealey Plaza, with the USSR and Cuba.

The essay focuses on tales told by Richard Helms, a top official of the CIA in 1963 who later became its director — and  is based on a talk given by Prof. Peter Dale Scott.

Scott is the popularizer of the expression, “Deep Politics,” and a virtuoso when it comes to what sometimes seems like grabbing smoke — capturing proof, however elusive, of motives and objectives that could explain  the machinations of US intelligence agencies — and then analyzing the residue.

Not all of the chicanery Scott describes is subtle. For example, in an apparent attempt to bring the Russians into the picture, someone delivered to the FBI’s Dallas office a purported audiotape of Oswald calling the Soviet embassy in Mexico City. That failed, though, when FBI agents decided that the voice did not seem to be Oswald’s.

Then, two days later, the FBI joined the subterfuge by falsely reporting that “no tapes were taken to Dallas.” Because of this lie, an investigation more than a decade later by the House Select Committee on Assassinations would erroneously declare that there was no “basis for concluding that there had been an Oswald imposter.”  (The existence of an Oswald impersonator in the months before the president’s murder would in and of itself have been prima facie evidence of a conspiracy in Kennedy’s death.)

And then there was the attempt to set up a Soviet agent…

You will probably not be able to keep up with each tall tale, nor does it matter. They have a cumulative effect, one that explains why it is impossible to study these documents without coming away believing in conspiracy.

There is dark humor here — reminiscent of the television sit-com of the 1960’s, “Get Smart” — about a secret agent who was always telling one lie after another, blissfully unaware that each new lie not only undermined the last one, but any new one that came after:

Smart:      I happen to know that at this very minute seven Coast Guard cutters are converging on this boat. Would you believe it? Seven.

Mr.Big:     I find that pretty hard to believe.

Smart:      Would you believe six?

Mr.Big:     I don’t think so.

Smart:      Would you believe two cops in a rowboat?

Would you believe that the US intelligence community has been telling us the truth all of these years?

The CIA’s Obstruction of Justice in 2015

Now let us compare the CIA’s lying performance in 1964 with its lying performance in 2015. In the wake of the Kennedy assassination, members of many U.S. agencies, including also the FBI, the Office of Naval Intelligence, the U.S. Air Force, and the Secret Service, withheld relevant information from those investigating the murder.[1] But to my knowledge there is in 2015 only one U.S. agency that is still actively maintaining the cover-up – and that is the CIA.

I am referring to the CIA’s declassification and release of a previously classified CIA study by CIA historian David Robarge, “DCI John McCone and the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy.”[2] The essay is worth reading, and it contains interesting information on such matters as McCone’s relationship with Robert Kennedy. It is also significantly selective: it does not mention for example that McCone only learned late on the night of November 22 that “the CIA had known beforehand of [the alleged] Oswald’s trip to the Soviet Embassy in Mexico City,” nor that as a result McCone “was enraged, ripping into his aides, furious at the way the agency was run.”[3]

Buried within Robarge’s discussion of John McCone and the Commission – a pertinent but hardly central topic – are a more important thesis statement and conclusion about the CIA itself. In the light of what I have just said about Helms, I would charge that both of these statements are false – so false indeed as arguably to constitute, once again, obstruction of justice.

The thesis statement on page 8 is that “Under McCone’s and Helms’s direction, CIA supported the Warren Commission in a way that may best be described as passive, reactive, and selective.” This claims that the CIA’s deception of the Warren Commission was a sin of omission. But no, the CIA was not just passive. Helms perjured himself, just as he lied again in the 1970s.

Worse, the article focuses on the failure of the CIA to tell the Warren Commission about its plots to assassinate Castro, which may very well have been relevant; but in so doing it deflects attention away from the CIA’s suppression of its own LCIMPROVE operation in October involving “Lee Oswald” (or “Lee Henry Oswald”), which unquestionably was of very great relevance.

Worst of all is the article’s conclusion:

Max Holland, one of the most fair-minded scholars of these events, has concluded that “if the word ‘conspiracy’ must be uttered in the same breath as ‘Kennedy assassination,’ the only one that existed was the conspiracy to kill Castro and then keep that effort secret after November 22nd.”

Of the many things wrong with this sentence, the worst service to truth in my mind is the skillful effort to divert attention away from the Angleton operation involving Oswald, and to focus instead on plots to kill Castro. This is an old ploy dating back to 1965, following in the footsteps of old CIA veterans and friends like Brian Latell and Gus Russo. It allows a writer like Philip Shenon to quote from the Robarge study the old red herring question “Did Castro kill the president because the president had tried to kill Castro?”[4]

Public Attacks in 1963-64 on the CIA’s Operational Capacity

Some people have deduced, from the fact that CIA officials lied, that the CIA killed Kennedy. I myself believe only that some CIA individuals were involved, along with others in other agencies. As I indicated earlier, my working hypothesis is not that the killing was a CIA operation, but that the plot was piggy-backed on an authorized CIA covert operation that was not under secure control and may in part have been outsourced.[5] Some CIA actions before the assassination, notably the protection of Oswald by suppressing the reported allegation that he had been in contact with Kostikov, suggest to me that some members of the CIA CI staff, and in particular CI Chief James Angleton, may have participated to some degree in the piggy-backed plot.

At a minimum, we can say that the CIA, through its Oswald operation, was sufficiently involved in the facts of the assassination to have been embarrassed into a cover-up. We have to recall that in late 1963 the CIA’s covert operations were coming under increasing criticism and attack, initially because of the 1961 Bay of Pigs Operation against Cuba, a total fiasco, but now also because of the developing chaos in Vietnam, particularly after the assassination on November 1, 1963, of Vietnamese president Ngo Dinh Diem and his brother.

We do not know just how aware the CIA was of Kennedy’s expressed vow to friends, first revealed a decade later, “to splinter the C.I.A. in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.”[6] But objections to the CIA’s  covert operations were beginning, to an unprecedented degree, to be voiced in the U.S. media.

On November 20, 1963, the New York Times published a letter, dated November 7, that argued, as did some Congressmen of the period, that

“One of the very first steps … should be to strip the CIA immediately of all operational and policy-making powers and confine it to its original function – namely the gathering of information.”[7]

One month earlier, on October 2, Washington News correspondent Richard Starnes had published a blistering attack on the CIA from Saigon (possibly inspired by U.S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, who was already preparing to be a Republican candidate for president in 1964):

SAIGON, Oct.2 – The story of the Central Intelligence Agency’s role in South Viet Nam is a dismal chronicle of bureaucratic arrogance, obstinate disregard of orders, and unrestrained thirst for power….

Other American agencies here are incredibly bitter about the CIA.  “If the United States ever experiences a ‘Seven Days in May’ it will come from the CIA, and not from the Pentagon,” one U.S. official commented caustically. [“Seven Days in May” is a fictional account of an attempted military coup to take over the U.S. Government.][8]

These complaints swelled to a crescendo after November 22. Exactly one month later, President Truman himself wrote in the Washington Post,

“I think it has become necessary to take another look at the purpose and operations of our Central Intelligence Agency…. For some time, I have been disturbed by the way CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of Government. This has led to trouble and may have compounded our difficulties in several explosive areas. I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations.”[9]

As David Talbot notes in The Devil’s Chessboard,

“Truman’s explosive piece in The Washington Post, which instantly caught fire and inspired similar anti-CIA editorials in newspapers from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Sacramento, California. Syndicated columnist Richard Starnes, a bête noire of the spy agency, used the Truman op-ed to launch a broadside against the CIA, calling it ‘a cloudy organism of uncertain purpose and appalling power.’ Meanwhile, Senator Eugene McCarthy, another agency critic, weighed in with an essay for The Saturday Evening Post… bluntly titled, ‘The CIA Is Getting Out of Hand.’”[10]

And by the time of Helms’s testimony even McCone, the outside CIA Director appointed by Kennedy,  “kept saying that he wanted to get out of the cloak-and-dagger business.”[11]

In other words, Helms’s motives for perjury in 1964, involved far more than the technicality that he had sworn an oath to protect the agency’s secrets. At risk in these crucial months was the preservation of the agency itself, or at a minimum the preservation of its operational capacity. The choice confronting him was not between two conflicting oaths. It was a choice between the survival of the CIA as he knew it, or the survival of America’s justice system and the rule of law as we then knew them.

Helms’s choice was unambiguous, as it was again in 1973, when he “falsely testified [to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee] that the CIA had not passed money to the opposition movement in Chile”.[12] He lied, at the expense of justice, to ensure that the CIA would survive. In this he would assuredly have had the support of Angleton. Angleton later testified to the Senate Church Committee that “it is inconceivable that a secret intelligence arm of the government has to comply with all the overt orders of the government.”[13]

The 1960s and 1970s Conflict: Public State versus Deep State

In Dallas ’63 I argue that these two decades, the sixties and seventies, were a crucial period in American history, two decades in which the American constitutional state and its structural deep state (including the CIA) were opposing each other and struggling to see which power would prevail over the other.[14]

It is noteworthy that in 1973, when Helms perjured himself again, not only the agency’s but his own personal career were again at risk.[15] In December 1972, after the Watergate break-in, Nixon believed Helms “was out to get him;” and accordingly he banished Helms to be Ambassador in Iran. He then he gave orders to Helms’s replacement, James Schlesinger, “to turn the place inside out.”[16]

In The American Deep State, I argue that, by banishing Helms to Iran, Nixon had heightened a conflict between the two forms of power (the state and the deep state), a conflict in which he, and not Helms, would become the victim. I believe that Tehran became a new center for Helms’s machinations, in conjunction with the intelligence agencies of Iran, France, and Saudi Arabia.

In 1976, after it became evident the new president Carter would resume the efforts to trim the agency, Helms became part of an organized offshore network (the so-called “Safari Club”) of these foreign intelligence agencies, which resumed the covert operations (notably in Angola) that were being curtailed by the combined efforts of the president and Congress.[17] Then, in 1980 (in the so-called Republican October Surprise), CIA veterans combined with leaders of the Safari Club to defeat Carter’s bid for re-election, and elect instead Ronald Reagan,[18]

Given this evolution of events, I conclude that Helms’s perjuries significantly affected the history of this country. They were a vital part of an on-going process whereby, after the Reagan Revolution of 1980, the constitutional deep state was now subordinated to the needs and priorities of the structural deep state (including, but not limited to, the CIA). One of these needs, ever since 1963, has been to preserve the threadbare fiction that Lee Harvey Oswald by himself killed the president, and no one in the CIA was involved in any way.

How can we make the American people more aware that elements of the CIA lied about the assassination in 1964, and are still lying today? How are we to deal with the widespread climate of denial in our media and academies?

To pursue the truth about these matters is to position oneself outside the mainstream-supported structure of ideas. And we have learned from experience that there are severe limits to the amount of assistance we can expect in that pursuit from either Congress or the courts.

The truth, however, can be a powerful political weapon. So can justice. So I hope we will all continue to dedicate ourselves to this very slow, but undying and rewarding effort, to make truth and justice prevail.

AFRICOM: The USA returns to Africa

AFRICOM: The USA returns to Africa

The recent upheavals in the Sahara – an upsurge in jihadist activity, a military coup in Mali and the French military’s action to counter terrorism in the deserts of Gao and Timbuktoo – have put the region in the international spotlight. As the 21st century begins, northwest Africa has become an important locale in the Global War on Terror as well as the fierce competition for the continent’s valuable natural resources. This film examines the complex political, economic and military forces now at work in the Sahel with special emphasis on the expanding role of AFRICOM – the United State’s newest and most innovative military command.

Pentagon justifies military expansion in Africa as key to ‘global strategy’

Pentagon justifies military expansion in Africa as key to ‘global strategy’
The Pentagon is calling for an increase in the US military footprint in Africa, where there are over 6,000 troops currently stationed. This as a top general confirms the four US soldiers killed in Niger were ambushed by an Islamic State-affiliate.

Speaking from the Pentagon on Monday, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford told reporters that US troops in Niger do not go on patrol with local forces unless the chances of enemy combat are “unlikely.” He confirmed the four US service members killed in the October 4 ambush were taken by surprise when they were attacked by a group of 50 militants affiliated with the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

US forces in Niger were ambushed by fighters from Mali, which became a terrorist stronghold after Libya collapsed into chaos and anarchy following the US intervention in 2011. Since then, neighboring countries have seen an increase in the number and severity of terrorist attacks.

While there is no direct combat mission for US troops in Niger, debate in Congress is heating up over whether to update or replace the 9/11-era authorization for use of military force, as the presence of US troops across West Africa gains widespread media coverage.

Dunford described Niger, where there are currently at least 800 US soldiers, as “inherently dangerous.”

The US has more than 6,000 troops stationed in about 53 of the 54 African countries. Most of them, approximately 4,000, are located at Camp Lemonnier in the east African country of Djibouti.

On Sunday, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) both said on NBC’s Meet the Press that they were unaware there were so many troops stationed in the area.

“I didn’t know there [were] 1,000 troops in Niger,” Graham said, adding that he expects to be briefed on their purpose and mission later this week.

However, Graham was one of 26 senators present for an AFRICOM hearing in March, and no lawmakers reportedly asked any questions about the number of troops in the region.

After being told once again about U.S. troops in Niger, Graham asked AFRICOM about Libya, Syria, and Russia, naturally. Nothing on Niger.

Senate records show 26 senators were present for that AFRICOM hearing. None of them asked about our troops in Niger. But lots of Russia Qs!

Graham supports sticking with the original Authorization for Use of Military Force, which passed three days after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and sent troops to Afghanistan and then Iraq.

A close ally of Graham’s, Senator John McCain (R-Arizona), is calling for more debate on the issue and has supported the idea of a new authorization. Last week, McCain, who chairs the Armed Services Committee, threatened to subpoena the White House for information regarding the attacks in Niger, claiming he had been told “very little.”

Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), who sits on the Foreign Relations Committee, has clashed with both Graham and McCain over war policy. He attacked Graham on Twitter on Monday as a “warmonger” who should have known about US troops in Niger.

You know you are in too many wars in too many places when even warmonger Lindsay Graham can’t keep track anymore

On Friday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis had meetings with both McCain and Graham and told them about the situation in the region. After the meeting, Graham told reporters that Mattis said the war on terrorism is “morphing.”

“You’re going to see more actions in Africa, not less; you’re going to see more aggression by the United States toward our enemies, not less; you’re going to have decisions being made not in the White House but out in the field,” Graham said, according to the Washington Post.

Speaking to reporters Monday, General Dunford echoed Graham’s statement, describing US troops stationed around the world as a “part of a global strategy.”

Dunford said that the US has been sending troops to Africa and other parts of the world in order to “put pressure” on terrorist groups “simultaneously wherever they are” and “anticipate where they will be” in the future.

He added that the US is building up a “relatively small footprint” of troops around the globe to enable local forces to deal with terrorists“before they become a threat to the American people.”

Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson are scheduled to address the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on October 30.

Trump’s call to one widow has dominated the news. Here are the other U.S. soldiers killed in Niger.

 The Washington Post
 October 24

Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright, Staff Sgt. Bryan Black and Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson. (U.S. Army)

President Trump’s condolence call to the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson has dominated the news for the better part of a week, opening up a rift between the president and the fallen soldier’s family, pulling White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly into the controversy and raising uncomfortable questions  about Trump’s treatment of Gold Star families.

But the political debate that exploded over the call has overshadowed the other lives lost in West Africa: Three U.S. soldiers were killed along with Johnson on Oct. 4, when militants attacked them in Niger.

Trump has called their families, too — but their names haven’t made headlines.

Staff Sgt. Dustin M. Wright, 29, was a class clown who could quote just about any comedy movie; a short and chubby child, he grew up into a fearsome Green Beret and was preparing for a future with a girlfriend in Philadelphia.

Staff Sgt. Bryan C. Black, 35, was a fierce competitor who spoke three foreign languages, including the one spoken in Niger; a father of two who excelled at medical studies, he was a Green Beret medic.

Staff Sgt. Jeremiah W. Johnson, 39, dedicated a decade of his life to military service, having earned a dozen medals, ribbons and badges.

Here are their stories.

Staff Sgt. Dustin M. Wright

Though Wright had plans to move to Philadelphia to be closer to a woman he had started dating, the 29-year-old, who joined the Army in 2012, left for Africa in August, propelled by a sharp sense of duty, his brother Will said in a phone interview. It was his second assignment in Africa.

Staff Sgt. Dustin M. Wright. (U.S. Army)

The third of four brothers in a military family, he was a bit of a gentle giant, his brother said, a short, chubby younger boy who grew into an offensive and defensive lineman on his high school football team. Known as the “big guy,” he could also recite the line to just about any comedy film.

“As he got older, he’s this massive, rough-and-tough John Wayne kind of guy,” Will said. “But if you knew him and talked to him, he was just a lovable clown. He was the nicest, most gentle man you ever met.”

The boys’ parents were in the Army when they were growing up near Lyons, Ga. Only about a year apart in age, the brothers were very close.

“We could finish each other’s sentences, and usually it was some sort of comedy or movie quotes,” said Will. “Any cheesy comedy you can think of, we knew the lines.”

Wright loved the beach and boating, accompanying his brother and a friend on a 10-day trip sailing down the Intracoastal Waterway between Norfolk, and St. Simons Island off the coast of Georgia. This past summer, Wright had met the woman he started dating at a country music festival in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Will said. He had plans to move closer to her once he returned from Africa.

“They were set to start their lives together,” Will said.

Wright was buried last week at a family plot in a cemetery in Georgia. More than two-thirds of the family in the plot are veterans, Will said. His brother is the first to have been killed in action.

“He was doing what he loved,” Will said. “That was where he was supposed to be and what he was supposed to be doing. We’re thankful.”

Staff Sgt. Bryan C. Black

Black did not just speak English, French and Arabic; the 35-year-old had also learned Hausa, a language spoken in Niger, because he wanted to communicate directly with the people.

He did not just learn chess when he was a child; he dominated at competitions.

Staff Sgt. Bryan C. Black (U.S. Army)

He did not just go through rigorous physical training to become a Green Beret; he also excelled in his medical studies.

Black, of Puyallup, Wash., was remembered for his fierce, competitive nature, his obituary says.

Frustrated after his older brother won a chess tournament when Bryan was in the fourth grade, he spent the entire summer studying the game. By the sixth grade, he had earned a national ranking.

That drive later pushed him toward a range of hobbies and skills: poker, carpentry, stock trading, martial arts and roofing.

“He was always learning something, mastering something,” father Hank Black said at his funeral, the Fayetteville Observer reported.

A former roommate from California, Joe Donovan, said that the first time he met Black, the man was playing six games of online poker and six games of chess on his computer simultaneously.

“What are you doing?” he asked.

“Right now, winning,” Black shot back.

A similar drive had prompted Black’s foray into wrestling. He pushed himself so hard during a bout of training in high school that he suffered heatstroke, but he stuck with it, according to his obituary. As a student at Central Washington University, he wrestled for the varsity team and graduated in 2002 with a degree in business administration.

He had earned money for his education by buying and selling rare coins.

After graduation, Black moved to Mammoth Lakes, Calif., to work as a ski instructor, where he met the woman who would become his wife, Michelle Richmond Black. The two married in 2005 and have two sons together, ages 9 and 11. Black joined the Army in 2009.

Pictures posted on Facebook show a procession of cars and motorcycles bringing Black’s coffin to his home in North Carolina. Firefighters and other service members saluted from highway overpasses. And in Fayetteville, where he lived with his family, a crowd of people stood in the street, waving American flags as the coffin was driven by.

Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson

Johnson’s family described him as a loyal man who loved his country.

“He was a man of many talents, he enjoyed working on and riding motorcycles, forging and customizing knives, smoking cigars and his tobacco pipe, and enjoying the outdoors with his family,” his obituary says.

Staff Sgt. Jeremiah W. Johnson (U.S. Army)

For some, he was the beloved crazy uncle who never let a dull moment seep into his day.

As his obituary says, Johnson’s “immortal words” were “WOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“He was wild & outgoing. Just always on 100; always making you want to pull your hair out . . .,” his niece, Carrie Gomez, wrote on Facebook. “My uncle J was everything your uncle is suppose[d] to be to you. Hard on you at times, there for you when you need it. . . . I will miss you so much I can not even put it into words. . . . Thank you for the ultimate sacrifice.”

In another Facebook post sharing a picture of Johnson holding a cigar, Gomez wrote: “Our crazy family get togethers will never be the same. I love & miss you.”

Johnson, who was from Springboro, Ohio, owned and operated his own business before he joined the Army in October 2007, according to his obituary.

“Jeremiah was doing what he really wanted to do,” Jeff Baldridge, a neighbor and family friend, told WHIO. “He really wanted to be an NCO [noncommissioned officer] in the United States Army.”

Johnson left behind his wife of 15 years, Crystal Johnson, and his two teenage daughters.

Johnson was born in North Carolina but moved to Ohio in his 20s to be closer to his mother and stepfather, the Dayton Daily News reported.

Flags were flown at half-staff last week in Springboro, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati and Dayton, as the community remembered one of its own.

“He was all about country, family, moral fiber. He was someone who, if you met him, you liked him immediately,” Springboro Mayor John Agenbroad told NBC affiliate WLWT.

Behind the Bush: Aleister Crowley, Yeats, the Anti Christ and Armageddon

(Part 6)

What Aleister Crowley never bothered to tell you


The Radicalism of the American Revolution by Gordon S. Wood, one of Americas most respected historians, lays out the facts in just how Masonic elements orchestrated the whole revolution and birth of America. It should permanently lay to rest the comic books written by the semi literate agents of the Jew purporting America to be a Christian nation. If that doesn’t then perhaps you might notice that a 305 foot tall statue of the Goddess stands at the mouth of the Hudson River, broken chains at her feet.

There is a mysterious hand print on The Declaration of Independence just like the one on the Petroglyph depicting the birth of the crab nebula in Chaco Canyon. The founding father of America, George Washington, was a Freemason and some said Illuminati although he denied it. But if ever anyone says they are Illuminati you can be certain they are not.

The schism among Masons is the same schism that tore the Brotherhood of the Snake in half so many eons ago, the same schism that caused the “Templers to fell the elm in 1188.” The Free Masons have given themselves over wholly to the bestial god of the Jews whom Masons call “the architect of the universe.” The Gnostics called him the demiurge and many other names far less flattering. The Illuminati have aligned themselves with his eternal enemy Lucifer; the serpent who gave man the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden. Lucifer is the bringer of light and knowledge and the implacable foe of the god of Abraham who is the god of darkness. Other than the Holy Ghost it was Lucifer who was sacred to Christian Rosencreutz legendary founder of the Rosicrucian’s. Both Christian Rosencreutz and Adam Weishaupt are saints in the Gnostic Church. Mohammad is a saint in the Gnostic church. They are all “Sons of the Lion and the Snake!” Jesus is not.

The Great Seal of the United States of America is an occult formula for ascertaining the true names of Yahweh. Jehovah, Yahweh or whatever else you want to call him is the lord of this world. The most powerful of all Qabalistic knowledge is the true names of Yahweh or Yod Vau Heh Heh in Hebrew. It is the objective of every competent exorcist to learn the correct name of the offending demon because knowledge of the demons true identity infers power over him. It is no different with Yahweh who is the king of all demons. Qabalists will tell you that only the great angel Metatron can teach you the names. It is forbidden for them to ever be spoken or written, although they are used in the Zohar. In these times of economic hardship I would not want to take anyone’s job away but I will tell you how it’s done.

The 4 Hebrew letters of Jehovah’s name; YHVH, are called the Tetragrammaton. They are an anagram. YVHH or Yahweh is also a four letter anagram. There are 12 of these anagrams one for each of the moons cycles within the year. They are read right to left: HVHY (Jehovah), HHVY (Yahweh), YHVH, HYVH, YHHV, HVYH, VYHH, YVHH, YHHV, HVYH, HHYV, and HYHV. The Zohar says: “two names of the Tetragrammaton for the first is indeed a perfect name, but the latter is thoroughly and completely perfect.” The two names are due to the nature of expansion and contraction in existence or as the Zohar says “the living creatures rush forth and return.”

Much of the Zohar is devoted to the nature of gods beard which is said to be 13 fold and must “ascendeth and descendeth.” This is represented by the interlocking triangles on the Star of David and the arrangement of the stars on the Great Seal of the United States of America. Each of the 13 stars that form the interlocking triangle on the Great Seal symbolizes a Hebrew letter; each of the letters has a numeric value. Y = 10, H = 5, V = 6.

According to Manly Hall’s THE SECRET TEACHINGS OF ALL AGES, called the ‘Big Book’ by Masons, “by arranging the four letters of the Great Name I, H, V, and H in the form of the Pythagorean Tetractys, the 72 powers of the Great Name of God are manifested.” Only 10 letters are placed within Halls Tetractys which is a triangle sitting on its base but the Zohar is quite clear that the nature of Gods beard is 13 fold and must “ascendeth and descendeth.”

Pythagorean Tetractys as given by Hall. Read from right to left it says Jehovah at its base. It is wrong of course the Jews and their Masonic dogs live by deception.

When the triangles are interlocked the beard “ascendeth and descendeth” and 3 missing letters must be added to fill in the three empty points on what becomes a six pointed star. When the letters are arranged according to the rules of Halls Pythagorean Tetractys using the full contingent of 13 letters, of the 12 possible combinations, only 2 of the sums of those 13 letters add up to 72.

You will have to add the letters yourself. In 1990 when I first learned this I showed it to one of my protégés. He was dead by the next day. With these names Solomon built the first Temple. “They confer power over all demons.” You decide whether its worth the risk.

A 5 pointed star is a pentagram and the Pentagon is a pentagram. The highest award for military valor, the Medal of Honor, is an inverted pentagram suspended underneath the symbol for Yahweh’s true names. Washington DC is laid out like an inverted pentagram; Logan Circle to Washington Circle, to Vernon Square to Dupont Circle to the Whitehouse culminates with a line back to Logan Circle. Thus forming a perfectly proportioned inverted pentagram focused atop the Whitehouse. This is an occult incantation to Baphomet, the “Demon” the Templar’s were burned for having worshiped.


When a Qabalistic cipher code called ATBASH is applied to Baphomet and written In Hebrew right to left it spells Sophia, a Greek word for the Goddess. Sophia means wisdom; skill in Magick.

I will give you the most precious of all lessons in Magick, a lesson that I unfortunately had to learn for myself the hard way. It is a secret even the ancients did not know. With her Magick the tyrant God of the Jews can be squashed like an insect. But in the ancient myths Isis never uses her Magick against Set and Hecate is the only Titan who doesn’t wage war against Zeus. Like any mother she loves her son. The ancients could not know this so it is not in their moldy old manuscripts but it is love that binds the Goddess to the God of Abraham, the love of a mother for her son and it is only love that can tear her from him; the love between the Moon and the Sun.

America is a land founded upon anomalous events, some that defy explanation in spite of sciences best efforts. It was plagues that laid to waste 9 out of every 10 indigenous inhabitants of the Western Hemisphere, plagues that accompanied the arrival of the rampaging Christian hordes and paved the way for their conquests. The explanation that the Indians had no immunity to the White Man’s disease’s no longer wash’s, if it ever did, in light of all the evidence given in the previous parts of this essay. Indeed antibodies have been found in Indians to the obscure Japanese disease HTLV1.

The earliest record of a Magi calling forth plagues upon his enemy is Moses unleashing the Angel of Death in Egypt. But this is not by any means the only biblical plague that marked the birth of America. In 1876, the U.S. Congress declared the locust “the single greatest impediment to the settlement of the country between Mississippi and the Rocky Mountains.” By 1890 the locust had vanished from the face of North America. It is a scientific enigma for which no plausible explanation has ever been given.

An outnumbered collection of untrained farmers and merchants managed to defeat the greatest military power the earth had known since the days of Rome. In the Battle of Long Island George Washington and his makeshift army of 10,000 men were on Brooklyn Heights encircled on three sides by 20,000 crack British troops yet Washington managed to escape across the East River with nearly the entire Continental Army cloaked by a mysterious fog which settled in from nowhere and lasted until they were safely away from the British.

In the war of 1812 the British occupied Washington on Aug. 25, 1814 in preparation to burn it to the ground. The book Washington Weather gives an account of what happened next; suddenly a storm “tore through the center of Washington and directly into the British occupation. Buildings were lifted off of their foundations and dashed to bits. Other buildings were blown down or lost their roofs. Feather beds were sucked out of homes and scattered about. Trees were uprooted, fences were blown down, and the heavy chain bridge across the Potomac River was buckled and rendered useless. A few British cannons were picked up by the winds and thrown through the air. The collapsing buildings and flying debris killed several British soldiers. Many of the soldiers did not have time to take cover from the winds and they laid face down in the streets. One account describes how a British officer on horseback did not dismount and the winds slammed both horse and rider violently to the ground.”

Nowhere else are the Jewish Masonic influences over America more apparent than the rise of the Mormon Church. In the early 1820’s the nation was griped with religious fervor. Jesus, Mary and the Angels were seen lurking in every church and farmyard. In Palmira New York a man named Joseph Smith claimed he had been shown tablets of gold by an Angel named Moroni.

Smith then wrote the book of Mormon chronicling the revelations of Moroni. Three witnesses testified they had met Moroni themselves and 8 more that they had seen the tablets. Written in “Reformed Egyptian” the tablets were copied without Moroni relinquishing them and later translated by Smith through clairvoyance and the use of “Seer Stones.”

The book gives an account of two great civilizations. One came from Jerusalem in 600 B.C. and afterward separated into two nations; the Nephites who were White and the Lamanites whom the book says had a “skin of blackness.” The other came much earlier when “the Lord confounded the tongues at the Tower of Babel.” This group is known as the Jaredites. After thousands of years all were destroyed except the Lamanites and they are among the ancestors of the American Indians.

The Olmec are considered the precursor of Mesoamerican civilization and “scholars” have recently admitted that Olmec civilization may have begun as early as seven thousand years ago in the region now called Tabasco. This presents problems for academia because the Olmec had the audacity to be blatantly black. Vast quantities of their art work has been dug up in the land at the southern foot of the Mexican valley, much of it deliberately buried and disfigured as if they had committed some unforgivable crime against the Maya population succeeding them.

Giant stone heads of brooding black kings stare with menacing silence at history’s usurpers daring them to explain their existence. Flawless step pyramids that would have been the envy of their contemporaries in the Mesopotamian valley are left hidden in the ever encroaching jungle lest they cast dispersion on Smithsonian sanctioned institutionalized racism.

An Olmec temple

Professor Andrzej Wiercinski discovered African skulls at Olmec sites in Tlatilco, Cerro de las Mesas and Monte Alban yet Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at Yale University and long time CIA operative Michael D. Coe continues to clamor that he will not except the art evidence as long as no African skeletons have been found in the New World.

Indian scholar R.A. Jairazbhoy states that the earliest settlers of America were Ancient Egyptians led by King Ramses III. He adds “The black began his career in America not as slave but as master.” Globally acclaimed scholar Dr Ivan Van Sertima sums it up nicely when he says: “A study of the Olmec civilization reveals elements that so closely parallel ritual traits and techniques in the Egypt-Nubian world of the same period that it is difficult to maintain [that] all these are due to mere coincidence.”

One of the few Mesoamerican books not destroyed by the rampaging soldiers of Christ, the Jews shock troops then as they still are now, the Popol Vuh mentions Black people that came to America “from the land of the sunrise.” Mayan colored murals from Bonompak and Chichen Itza in Mexico show Black and light skinned warriors together. The author of ‘the Gods of the Cataclysm’, Hugh Fox a professor at Michigan State University, concluded that Phoenician and Olmec funerary masks were virtually identical both depicting the Egyptian – Phoenician God Bes.

An Olmec statue of what should be obvious to anyone but a complete imbecile is a Black man!

It should surprise no one that the Mormons have access to a history that the goyim do not. The Church of Latter-day Saints is homogenized Masonic doctrine. Its fealty is to its Jewish Masonic masters and their God whom the Mormons simply refer to as the Lord. Mormons love their Jewish masters so much that the ADL had to recently ask them to stop baptizing dead Jews in absentia so they could go to heaven and become Gods like every good Mormon aspires to be. Of course the Mormons paid them no mind. Abe Foxman is not exactly a member of the ruling Sanhedrin. They recently baptized Elie Wiesel even though he is unfortunately still very much alive.

The pentagram is the most prominent symbol of Mormonism and the basic premise of Mormonism is that a man can become a God. In American history it was the Mormons who spearheaded the drive westward towards Manifest destiny while the Christians remained safely ensconced within forts along the Eastern Coast. The Mormon Church went on to become a rival of the great religions settling comfortably in the path of the Skinwalker. The Mormons now control Americas Internal Revenue Service and wield it like a weapon to persecute anyone who might get in the way of the Jewish agenda of a Jewish controlled police state that will provide American muscle for world dominion.

There is a black mat separating the current epoch in America from the one that existed before it 12,900 years ago. The mat is extremely common in Americas southwest. The mat marks the abrupt end of over 50 different “Clovis” sites. Although the mat contains Nano diamonds, metallic micro spherules, carbon spherules, magnetic spherules, charcoal, soot, and fullerenes enriched in helium-3, all evidence of a catastrophic fire, academia continues to insist that it was mans hunting practices that were responsible for the sudden and complete extinction of the Mega fauna in the Americas. The reasons given for the disappearance of Clovis civilization are not even coherent enough to summarize.

Iridium has also been found in the mat in quantities large enough to indicate an extraterrestrial source for the Fire. Iridium is one of the least abundant elements in the Earth’s crust but is quite common in meteors.

The Bible tells its readers God rained down fire on Sodom and Gomorrah and sowed the sites with salt so that nothing could grow there. Scientists began to turn up evidence of settlements that had been burned from above in areas around the Dead Sea in Israel as early as 1973. The forensics on the charred remains of settlements southeast of the Dead Sea indicates the fires started on the roofs of the buildings. The Dead Sea is a salt water lake and shares many common geographical features with a land thousands of miles away in the western hemisphere, the land of the Mormons. The Mormons built their city besides the largest salt water lake in the western hemisphere, the Great Salt Lake. The area around that lake is where evidence for the largest concentrations of the doomed “Clovis” peoples have been found. In fact Clovis civilization takes its name from a town in New Mexico named Clovis.

Traditionally the oldest known text of Jewish mysticism or Qabalism is the Sepher Yetsirah or the Book of Formation supposedly written by Abraham himself, next is the Sepher ha Zohar written by disciples of Rabbi Akiva ben Joseph; Rabbi Simeon ben Jochai and son, The Rabbi and his son hid in a cave from the Romans shortly after the Bar-Kochba rebellion.

All of these books can be traced back with historical certainty to the beginning of the fourteenth century when they were published in Spain, along with the Zohar, by Rabbi Moses de León, shortly before his death in 1305. From these texts are described the “Tree of Life.” Incredibly enough the Sepher Yetsirah demonstrates more than just a passing acquaintance with Quantum Physics.

The Sepher Yetsirah tells its students that God created the universe from a single letter in the Hebrew Alphabet; the Yod. Quantum physicists working furiously at the freshly minted mega billion dollar particle accelerator in Switzerland, built specifically for the purpose, have succeeded in isolating a single sub atomic particle that appears to be the basic building block of matter. They have christened that particle, otherwise called the Higgs boson particle, the God particle.

In Quantum mechanics there are 10 dimensions. Since 1995 the proponents of String Theory have solved many of its early contradictions by adding one extra dimension and fixing the number at 11 this is called M Theory. Whether there are 10 or 11 dimensions is currently hotly debated among particle physicists. According to the Sepher Yetsirah the ‘Tree of Life’ contains 10 spheres of existence. But for the last 700 years plus Qabalists have debated whether there was an eleventh sphere called Da’at (knowledge) between Kether (the Crown) and Tiphareth (Grace).

On the ‘Tree of Life’ there is only one sphere which manifests all the other spheres. It is the realm of the tangible called Malkuth or in English the World. The other spheres, although not visible to man, play out their influences in Malkuth. Physicists now realize gravity could not exist unless 90% of the universe is undetectable to the human senses and the instruments currently at mans disposal. They call this invisible 90%; Dark Matter.

On the Tree of Life the spheres of existence are connected by 22 paths. No one knows the number of subatomic particles, but it is believed to be around 20.

In Qabalism there are 4 worlds containing the spheres of existence called Atziluth the world of nearness, Briah the world of Creation, Yetzirah the world of Formation, and Assiah the world of action. Four forces govern the interactions of matter: Electromagnetism, Gravity, and the Weak and the Strong nuclear force.

In Qabalism there are 3 mother letters; Aleph corresponding to Air, Mem corresponding to Water, Shin corresponding to Fire. The mother letters have the ability to transubstantiate to the letters in god’s name; Yod, Heh, and Vav. It is the letters of gods own name which he uses to seal the 6 directions of infinity to create a cube where existence is possible.

Stephen Hawking proposes an infinite number of parallel universes connected by wormholes. Sidney Coleman was once quoted on a tee shirt by his students in Harvard as saying: “Not only God knows, I know, and by the end of the semester, you will know.” He theorized these wormholes are necessary to keep the cosmological constant at zero because with a negative charge the universe wraps itself into hyperspace and with a positive charge it explodes. There are three basic properties of a black hole; its mass, its spin, and its charge.

The most important key to the Qabalah is Gematria wherein each of the 22 Hebrew letters is assigned a numerical value. Every word has a sum. When the sums of 2 words are the same they are interchangeable or used to explain each other. In Qabalistic lore Rabbi Simeon ben Jochai and son wrote the second book while hiding in a cave. The Hebrew word for cave is mearah Its Gematric value is 315(M = 40, O = 70, R = 200, H = 5) the same as the world of formation; Yetzirah (Y = 10, Tz = 90, Y = 10, R = 200, H = 5). The Rabbi and his son were hiding as a result of the failed Bar-Kochba rebellion. Coins commemorating that rebellion have been found in America as have many other Hebrew artifacts. Somehow Haplogroup X, Hebrew mitochondrial DNA, was introduced to the Navajo gene pool about a thousand years ago at the very same time the Anasazi reigned in terror in what is now the land of the Dene.

The word cave appears 39 times in the Old Testament. In the Qabalah 39 is the number of completion, the metastasis of God. The Seven Sleepers of Ephesus is a Christian story about seven youths who in 250 AD escape the persecution of Christians by the Roman emperor Decius when they hide in a cave where they are transported through sleep hundreds of years into the future.

The story is repeated in the Qur’an in Surah 18, verse 9-26. In the Quran the time elapsed, dates, and number of sleepers, are not given and the reader is told that those details are best left to God. After warning the time travelers to stay in the cave and avoid detection lest they be stoned the Qur’an tells its readers: “We caused them to be discovered, to let everyone know that God’s promise is true, and to remove all doubt concerning the end of the world.”According to Islamic scholars these verses were revealed to Mohammed after Rabbis from Medina put people up to questioning him about young men from the past and a man who traveled the earth from east to west.

In the Bible Lot hides in a cave with his 2 daughters after Sodom and Gomorrah are incinerated by God’s wrath. The Gematric value of Gomorrah is 315 (O = 70, M = 40, R = 200, H = 5). According to the rules of Qabalah; Gomorrah, the world of Formation and the cave referred to 39 times in the Old Testament are all America or intimately entwined with her. How did Moses manage to wander through the Sinai desert without once having caught sight of the Promised Land which he was supposedly standing on? Perhaps the right of return is the right of all the earth’s people to return to the site of what was once their greatest civilization; America the Promised Land.

Michelangelo’s Moses depicted with horns
Human skulls with horns were discovered in a burial mound at Sayre, Bradford County, Pennsylvania, in the 1880’s. Horny projections extended two inches above the eye-brows, and the skeletons were seven feet tall, but other than that were anatomically normal.

Akhenaton reigned as Pharaoh of Egypt about 3450 years ago. He introduced monotheism to Egypt and some scholars consider his reign as the progenitor of Judaism. For obvious reasons I do not but there is no doubt that the monotheism caused a schism within the Egyptian priesthood.

Upon his death his dynasty was usurped and his son and successor Tutankhamun murdered. The power was again returned to Thebes whose priests immediately set about vilifying Akhenaton by defacing his monuments and referring to him as “the enemy” in archival records.

Akhenaton and his family were hideously misshapen with elongated heads shaped like gourds. In Paracas, Peru; archeologists have found hundreds of the same kind of skulls. The Peruvian skulls have been dated by Brien Foerster, expert on Inca and pre Inca civilizations, to be 3000 years old or older. As Jim Morrison said “this is the land where the pharaoh died.”

Supreme Court in Jerusalem: The Throne of the Masonic Rothschild Antichrist

To understand the problem is to understand the solution.  Usury is the key issue. Deuteronomy is very explicit: YHVH orders the Jews to conquer the world with Usury time and again. – See more at:

I have often written that the Rothschilds own the world is the only world power  through Masonry, even devouring the world  and here  and here   and here. And I have written that they are interwoven  with the Jesuits and here and here.
But there is more to it: The Rothschilds are Sabbataean – Frankist – Satanists, and they are planning the fulfilment of the the coming of their Antichrist, benDavid, as described in Revelation 13, 17, 19 as the antithesis of the great whore – see Wolfgang Eggert. Some think the big Antichrist will be a Rothschild. I am not so sure. I think rather one of their puppets. Apparently, the Illuminati have already anointed their  minor Antichrist to anoint the greater Antichrist.
The Illuminati have already built the temporary temple of the Antichrist in Jerusalem

rothschild-masterHenry Makow 17 April 2014. Left: The crowned heads of Europe — the ostensible rulers of the day — bowing before Lionel Rothschild on his throne of mortgages, credits and cash.
This period cartoon illustrates the crowned heads of Europe — the ostensible rulers of the day — bowing before Lionel Rothschild on his throne of mortgages, loans and cash. In fact, this was the reality of the day, the effective fruition of the age-old Jewish dream of a New World Order — a Jewish Utopia — in which all other peoples of the planet would bow down and worship the Jewish people, the new rulers of the Earth. For good reason, indeed, Rothschild was known as the “king of kings.” (Michael Collins Piper- The New Babylon). Usury is his means.  

The ideology behind the New World Order may be Jewish Messianism, the view that God has chosen “the King of the Jews” to rule the world. This “Messiah,” or antichrist, will be selected from the ranks of the Rothschild family. (Elijah, Rothschilds and the Ark of the Covenant” by Tom Crotser & Jeremiah Patrick,  Restoration Press, 1984.)

Right: Masonic/Illuminati  pyramid in front of the Supreme Court of Israel  flanked by the pillars Jachin and Boaz, originally found in front of the Temple og Salomon.

Apparently the Rothschilds intend to place the Ark of the Covenant in Salomon’s Temple in Jerusalem to legitimize their claim to be the Messiah(nobody knows if it still exists).
The author of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion repeatedly refers to world conquest in terms of “when we have come into our kingdom.” Henry Makow is  convinced that he was a Rothschild.

supremecourtThe Supreme Court was donated by Dorothy de Rothschild and opened in 1992. On the roof of the court building, the Illuminati pyramid with Lucifer´s all-seeing eye is seen

This vision rooted in Biblical prophesy is behind economic and political events today. The Zionist vision is much larger than a Jewish homeland. “The Messianic hope promises the establishment by the Jews of world power in Palestine to which all the nations of the earth will pay homage.

“This glorious age can only be affected by a man, a scion of the House of David” who will lead the Jews to “righteousness” and “regenerate” the human race. According to the Talmud, this Messiah from the seed of David shall subjugate the heathen nations and make Israel the world power.

Summarizing the Talmud, Rabbi Michael: Higger wrote that: “All the treasures and natural resources of the world will eventually come in possession of the righteous (Jews). This, he said, would be in keeping, with thy prophecy of Isaiah 23:18: “In her gain and her hire shall be holiness to the Lord; it shall be not treasured nor laid out, for her gain shall be for them that dwell before the Lord, to eat their fill and for stately clothing.” (The Jewish Utopia, 1932)

The Rothschilds saw themselves in the role of Messiah-facilitator, if not Messiah.

As early as 1836, Amschel Meyer Rothschild received a letter from rabbi Hirsch Kalischer, who revealed to him the divine plan: “The beginning of the redemption will be in a natural way, by the desire of the Jews to settle in Palestine, and the willingness of the nations to help them in this work.”
The holocaust likely was part of plan(see 1897), to prepare the groundwork for the appearance of a Jewish Messiah. After Jews had (been) returned to Palestine and the Temple was rebuilt, “then God … will send His prophet and his anointed king,” Kalischer wrote.

supremecourt-fareastgodLeft: Asian temple and outside the photo an Asian god – a call for the Satanic one world religion (Interfaith and here and here). All major religions of the world are represented in one form or another.

Albert Cohen, Edmund de Rothschild’s tutor, shared Kalischer’s views and imbued them in his pupil. As a result Edmund de Rothschild funded the Jewish colonization of Palestine in the 19th century. Edmund de Rothschild engineered the famous Dreyfus Affair in order to create anti-Semitism and force Jews to support Israel as a refuge. He established his own administration in Palestine.
Edmund de Rothschild was playing a role in a larger drama which would see his successor finally become the anti-Christ. This required that Jews return to Palestine, and that required a huge Rothschild-organized pogrom in Europe. (see “Hitler was a Godsend for Israel“).

The Rothschilds bend the nations to their will by means of debt.
Moses relates the basic principle in Deuteronomy 15:6: “Thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shalt not reign over thee.”  In Deuteronomy 23:20,  Moses allows the Jews to conquer the world with interest/usury.

The religious nature of the NWO of the Pharisees
The New Babylon by Michael Collins Piper Chapter II:  In 1932, Michael Rigger, Ph.D., assembled a book entitled The Jewish Utopia. It has been described as a compendium of the philosophy behind the New World Order. The organization of rabbis in Texas thought so highly of the work that they donated that copy to the state university’s library as “the sum of the Talmud.

courtyardLeft: Psalm 85:11 Truth shall spring up from the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven. For the Judges sit above the courtyard looging upon this channel and basin in the yard.

Long-established and much-heralded Jewish religious teachings assert that that the Jewish people will ultimately come to rule the world, that they are superior to all other people and that ultimately they will be, essentially, the proverbial master race.
The Jewish Utopia describing the “new ideal era” — the New World Order — is “a universal paradise of mankind … established in this world.”

According to Higger’s assessment of the Jewish tradition, “the NWO ruler will be a descendant of the House of David.” Today there is a formally organized international Jewish organization, the Davidic Dynasty, openly working to track down and reunite all of the descendants of the House of David.
This “Holy One” of Jewish power will be seated in Jerusalem. He will divide up the property of the world. Who will get this property? The answer, as defined by rabbinic authority: “To the righteous (Jews) will belong all the wealth, treasures and industrial gains and other resources of the world. To the unrighteous (goyim) will belong nothing.”The Jewish motto is: “Righteous (Jews) Unite! Better Destruction of the World Than a Wicked World.”  The Jews will have control of it all since the Jews — via the City of Jerusalem — will be in control of the gold and wealth.

Any government that stands against the Jews will be considered to be wicked and unrighteous if it dares to challenge the Jewish global agenda: the New World Order.

There will eventually be one global religion,  Judaism. There would be a world government.  That would be the “spiritual conquest” of the world.

The unrighteous will have a fair trial when it will become evident that their existence would hinder the advent of the ideal era.
Thus, at the coming of the Messiah, the really wicked nations, like the really wicked individuals must disappear from the earth before an ideal human society of righteous nations can be established.
The fact is that the Jewish concept of the Messiah is often reckoned to be that the Jewish people themselves are “the Messiah.”

supreme-court-pomegranatesLeft: In mythology  pomegranates signify that they are givers of life and plenty. Pomegranate capitals were placed upon the pillars of Jachin and Boaz standing in front of King Solomon’s Temple; and by the order of Jehovah, pomegranate blossoms were embroidered upon the bottom of the High Priest’s ephod”

Hence, Israel and the other righteous nations shall combat the combined forces of the wicked, unrighteous nations under the leadership of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38, 39) at Armageddon.
where  the  unrighteous will suffer a crushing defeat and Zion will thenceforth remain the center of the kingdom of God.

Why deny? A Christian Jew explains “Holocaust denial”

It is possible not only to survive, but to actually THRIVE as a “holocaust denier.” Here are the top ten benefits of being so labeled.
According to Dr. Nick Kollerstrom, many thousands of people in Germany (though not six million – yet) have been imprisoned for expressing politically-incorrect views.

WANTED – A psychiatric diagnosis of Nazi holocaust denial.

That was the title of a recent article by Alan Hart, author of the brilliant Zionism trilogy.  With that piece, Alan started a controversy by wondering whether “holocaust deniers” are mentally ill.  Listen to my discussion of this topic with Alan Hart at .

Obviously, some holocaust revisionists do harbor anti-Jewish prejudice. But just as obviously, many don’t.

Can a sane, unprejudiced person “deny the Holocaust”?

As much as I admire Alan Hart, I think he used a fallacious ad-hominem argument in lumping “holocaust deniers” together and suggesting they all need psychiatric diagnosis. That’s the kind of argument Fox News hosts use against people questioning 9/11.

I understand why Alan lashed out. A few of the comments here at Veterans Today (which has by far the best comment section, overall, of any news outlet anywhere) drip with visceral hatred of Jewish people. Alan was offended, got into a couple of typical internet flame wars, and unloaded.

Michael Korn, a Jewish Christian and an old friend from the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance, answered Alan by explaining why some of his German friends question the Holocaust. Like David Cole, who recently re-emerged into public view, Michael is obviously of sound mind, highly intelligent, and a critic of some aspects of current “tribal Jewish policy” – which does NOT make him a “self-hating Jew.” On the contrary, Korn and Cole seem to be sufficiently at ease with themselves to contemplate issues that make insecure people nervous.

Here is Michael Korn’s open letter to Alan Hart.

A Response to Alan Hart’s “WANTED – A psychiatric diagnosis of Nazi holocaust denial.

by Michael Korn













PS Please examine the information from Mr. Grisham’s book, posted in the second comment on this article (see comments section below.)

This account in Grisham’s novel The Chamber pretty much puts the nail in the coffin of the claim about homicidal gas chambers.

But before you read it, let me state clearly to you that even if the conventional account about the Holocaust is true, I really don’t care about it. This is because compared to the threats that we all face on planet earth, the Holocaust is a minor tragedy.

Also Jewish groups have blown the Holocaust out of proportion by exaggerating the significance of their own suffering and denigrating that of others, who in fact suffered much more.

Also Hitler was God’s instrument to vacate the Jews from Europe and to create a Jewish State, something you have told me you support. Israel should erect a statue of Hitler and put it in their Kenesseth building or next to the Western Wall.

Also Jews have tried to substitute their suffering for that of Jesus Christ, the only Jew worth venerating and adoring. Jesus loves us but Jews hate those who pay tribute to them thus exacting ever increasing amounts of reparations and war guilt booty.

Also Jews deny the other very real Holocausts that occurred during WWII, in the fire bombings of German and Japanese cities that caused millions of deaths.

Finally, as a Christian believer, surely you recognize that Jewish people have an account to settle with their Creator for continuing to denigrate His Son Jesus. If Hitler was God’s instrument of wrath, who are we to soften the blow?

Now kindly read on the excerpt from Mr. Grisham:

This is a really interesting exchange about a John Grisham book that inadvertently puts some of the claims of Holocaust Revisionists in a more favorable light.

Leonard Vincent is the chief attorney for the Mississippi Dept. of Corrections, whom Grisham thanks in his acknowledgements as being of great assistance in helping him prepare the background for the book.

Vincent substantiates the passage from the novel I have excerpted below as truthfully describing the incredible precautions necessary when executing a prisoner in an American gas chamber.

Given these precautions, how do you explain the claims of Jewish groups that the Germans would gas 100-200 inmates at a time and then other inmates were forced to immediately evacuate the gas chambers and cart off the bodies to ovens without any protective measures. Is this even possible?

Or is it the case that the prison officials simply erred on the side of caution and there is no real danger to come into direct contact with corpses gassed to death with cyanide?

1) What is historical revisionism?

Ans: As more facts about past events come to light, it becomes necessary to re-evaluate them taking the new information into account. All history is constantly being reviewed. It is a natural process. It is an important process. The only way to judge the future is to accurately compare current trends and events to those of earlier times. It has been said that the good thing about experience is that one can recognize a mistake when it is made again. So it is with history, the sum of recorded human experience. Historical revisionism is the process of changing the human record so that it more accurately represents events as they actually occurred. Often there is resistance to the process of bringing history in accord with the facts. The reason for this is history is not simply a record of events, but is also a resource from which a world view is drawn. A re-examination or re-evaluation of important historical events can be viewed as a threat to the political status quo and to interests upon whose power partially rests the established view of these events. It has also been said that historians have the power to upset everything. Vested interests take a dim view of having everything upset.

2) What is the Holocaust?

Ans: The Holocaust, or Shoah, is the term used to label the fate of the Jews of Europe at the hands of the Nazis during World War Two. It is a broad term used to cover all events involving Europe’s Jews usually between 1933 and 1945, and especially during the six year period between November 1938 (Kristallnacht) and November 1944 (alleged Himmler order to stop the Final Solution program). Six extermination centers are said to have been established between 1941 and 1943 by the Nazis in Poland for the purpose of killing Jews and “other minorities.” The number of Jews killed by the Nazis during this period is generally estimated to have been six million.

Ans: The Holocaust” : An all-encompassing neologism used in reference to the (alleged) extermination of European Jews by the Nazis during World War Two. Use of the term in this context presumes the following:

(1) The Nazis implemented and succeeded in a premeditated plan to destroy (not resettle) European Jewry,

(2) Approximately six million or more Jews perished as a result, and

(3) A majority of these were killed by use of poison gas (Zyklon B) [and internal combustion engine exhaust] in gas chambers built for the purpose of taking human life. […]

Ref: “Worldwide Growth and Impact of ‘Holocaust’ Revisionism” — IHR Special Report 1985



3) Do revisionists ‘deny the Holocaust’?

Ans: The phrase “Holocaust denial” was invented by a Holoscribe named Deborah Lipstadt who occupies the Dorot Chair in Modern Jewish and Holocaust Studies at Emory University. Its purpose is to imply Holocaust revisionists are not rational in their opinions. Dr. Lipstadt believes the current view of the Holocaust cannot be questioned and debate on the topic cannot be tolerated. To this end she created the epithet “Holocaust denier.

Revisionists are skeptical of postwar testimony of gas chambers at the Nazi concentration camps and are of the opinion the six million figure is a baseless exaggeration. It is not a matter of denying anything. The issue is whether this emotionally charged and politically important event can be examined critically. Researchers — some professional, some amateur — have been questioning aspects of the Nazi extermination story since the war ended fifty years ago.

The evidence has been difficult to obtain, but in the last twenty-five years enough has been gathered to conclude the gas chamber story is definitely false and the Nazi program to kill the Jews is a myth. The problem that has arisen is established political interests have done their best to suppress this research and prevent the evidence to support these startling conclusions from being presented to the general public.

Ref: Lipstadt; Irving; Butz; Faurisson; Mattogno; Others.



4) What aspects of the Holocaust do revisionists believe to be supported by evidence?

Ans: Here is a summary of what happened to the Jews: Before the war, the Nazis encouraged emigration of German Jewry. Laws were instituted and governmental pressures were brought to bear to make life more difficult for Jews in many professions which Jews came to dominate in the Weimar Republic. The “Ha’avara” or transfer agreement was reached with Zionist leaders to facilitate the emigration of German Jews to Palestine. Emigrating Jews very often were forced to abandon much of their wealth when they left Germany.

After the defeat of France, a plan was discussed by the Nazis to remove the Jews from Europe to the French colony on Madagascar. This plan was soon dropped in favor of a resettlement plan which transferred Jews into ghettos and work camps inside Soviet territory following the invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941. This was to be the first stage toward the ultimate creation of a Jewish homeland after the war. As the Germans invaded and the Russians retreated, large shifts in population occurred in eastern Europe. This shift went from west to east. Tens of millions of people were involved. Many were forcibly deported into the Russian interior. Others willingly accompanied the Communists as the Red Army retreated eastward.

General Gehlen estimated in his memoirs that a third of the population in the areas the German army was to occupy was evacuated eastward ahead of the German invasion. Since Jews were viewed by many eastern Europeans as willing accomplices of the Communists who had occupied the area in the years and months preceding the German assault, pogroms occurred after the retreat of the Red Army and prior to arrival of the German army. Many of these assaults on local Jews were in reaction to the murdering of political prisoners by the Soviet police as they prepared to retreat. These events left areas of eastern Europe, now occupied by the German Wehrmacht and under Nazi administration depopulated. The Nazis took the situation as an opportunity to remove Jews eastward into the areas abandoned during the Soviet retreat. Jews were assembled at train terminals and deported to ghettos and concentration camps established for them in the east. Some Jews were not deported, however, due to the fact their work was considered too important to the German war effort.

A result of the tremendous movement of people is many families and communities were scattered and people lost contact with one another. Many of these contacts were not reestablished after the war due to a multitude of reasons the greatest of which were the splitting of Europe in two after the war and the establishment of the state of Israel. Guerrilla groups were formed to fight the Nazi occupation. A campaign of sabotage and assassination by these groups was countered by repression on the part of the occupiers in the form of the Einsatz groups. The Einsatzgruppe fought the partisans in ways which included reprisal shooting of civilians. Jews were believed to make up the majority of partisans. They were also the people targeted for reprisals. These reprisals took several forms which included the shooting of hostages or their deportation to ghettos and concentration camps.

During the summer of 1942 a major typhus epidemic swept the Nazi concentration camp system. The most severely affected camp was Auschwitz camp in Poland. The epidemic continued for many months. Crematories were built in some of the concentration camps as part of hygienic measures established to fight the epidemics. The fumigant Zyklon B was used to exterminate the typhus-bearing body louse which spread the disease. The total number of Jews and others who died in the camps is not known, but the total is probably in the hundreds of thousands.

As the Germans suffered military reversals in 1944 and 1945, the Nazis took many who were in labor camps with them as they retreated westward. Others were left behind. As this happened, tens of millions of people were again uprooted as civilians abandoned almost everything in an effort to escape the approaching Red Army. The migration in 1941-42 was eastward. In 1944-45 it was westward. In the beginning, Europe’s Jewish communities were concentrated in eastern Europe.

By the end of the war, Europe’s Jews were still in eastern Europe, but the communities were shattered. Tens of millions of people, particularly Germans and Jews were left homeless by the war. As a result, millions of Jews emigrated. Many settled in Palestine. Many more moved to North America. Others settled in Australia, South America, and South Africa. The war was a boon for the Zionist movement. The Holocaust become the founding myth of modern day Israel. As such it became an excuse for behavior of the Israelis which would have been inexcusable. It also became the excuse for billions of dollars in aid and “reparations” being sent to Israel from Germany and the United States even though Israel did not exist during the war and its citizens were not subject to Nazi repression. Much of the aid the new Zionist state was to receive was for the purpose of resettling European refugees who did not want to go there, but had little alternative at the time.

5) What aspects of the Holocaust do revisionists believe to be unsupported by evidence?

Ans: While there is no universal agreement on many aspects of WWII and the Holocaust, but one might be classified as a Holocaust revisionist if one is skeptical of the following:

* Hitler ordered the extermination of the Jews in writing, orally, or through mental telepathy.

* The Nazis cremated 1,500,000 to 4,000,000 bodies at Auschwitz/Birkenau in less than two years using between 30 and 52 single-body crematory ovens and were able to keep it all a secret until late 1944 despite the fact Auschwitz was a major bombing target photographed by American planes throughout that year.

* The Nazis were able to destroy all documentation of the extermination program before the total German surrender in mid 1945. This despite the fact all German secret codes had been broken by the British and many SS communications had been intercepted by them.



6) Wasn’t the Holocaust proven at the war crimes trials?

Ans: No.

The Nuremberg Military Trials (NMT) and International Military Trials (IMT) set out to prove nothing. The crimes themselves were never an issue. The courts took judicial notice of the crimes. This means the crimes were assumed to be true based purely on the allegations. No proof was needed. The war crimes tribunals also suspended the normal rules of evidence. They accepted into evidence documents, hearsay testimony, and other material which would never be accepted in anything other than a sham court. The point of the tribunals was to demonstrate the moral authority of the new world powers.

In demonizing the Nazi regime through these trials England, France, The United States, and the U.S.S.R secured their positions as the occupiers of Germany and justified the annexation of German territory along with the expulsions of millions of Germans into the dismembered rump Germany. Allied plans for the futur
