George Galloway has been sacked by talkRADIO after sending an allegedly anti-Semitic tweet.

The former MP posted on the social media site after the Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham on Saturday night.

He praised Liverpool’s win, before adding: “No #Israël flags on the Cup!” – appearing to reference Tottenham’s strong links with the Jewish community.

On Monday, the radio station said it had terminated his weekly show.

Mr Galloway hit back at his former employer, tweeting: “See you in Court guys.

The original tweet from Mr Galloway on Saturday night saw the former Labour and Respect MP face a backlash on Twitter.

Presentational white space

He defended the comment, claiming a number of Tottenham fans were flying the flag of Israel in the crowd and it showed an affiliation to a “racist state”.

But he was accused of being racist himself, including by Tottenham itself.

In a statement, the club said: “It’s astounding in this day and age to read such blatant anti-Semitism published on a social platform by someone who is still afforded air time on a radio station on which he has previously broken broadcast impartiality rules.”

On Monday morning, talkRADIO said it had cancelled Mr Galloway’s show, adding: “As a fair and balanced news provider, talkRADIO does not tolerate anti-Semitic views.”

Presentational white space

Board of Deputies of British Jews President Marie van der Zyl thanked Tottenham for “calling out” Mr Galloway and talkRADIO for “taking this poisonous and divisive figure off air”.

She added: “His attempt to bring hatred into a wonderful occasion for English football has attracted the derision it deserves.”

Taking to Twitter again, Mr Galloway said he’d been given a “red card” by the station for “over-celebrating” Liverpool’s success.

Mr Galloway has hosted The Mother of All Talk Shows show since 2016 and has breached Ofcom rules twice – once after discussing anti-Semitism accusations in the Labour Party and once after a show on the Salisbury poisonings.

Who is George Galloway?

The 64-year-old came to prominence in the 1980s as a member of the Labour Party, representing Glasgow as an MP.

But in 2003 he was expelled from the party after he was found guilty of four of the five charges of bringing the party into disrepute – including inciting Arabs to fight British troops, inciting British troops to defy orders and backing an anti-war candidate in an election.

In 2004, he became a member of the Respect Party and continued to protest against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2005 took the Bethnal Green and Bow seat from Labour.

However, many members of the public remember him for his appearance in Celebrity Big Brother in 2006 and his impression of a cat while on the show.

In 2012, he returned to Parliament as an MP for Bradford West and has run several campaigns since, including an unsuccessful campaign to become London Mayor.

But his controversial comments about the Israel/Palestinian conflict, Syria and the poisonings of the Skripals in Salisbury have been the main reason for attracting headlines in recent years.

talkRADIO has terminated George Galloway’s weekly show with immediate effect.

As a fair and balanced news provider, talkRADIO does not tolerate anti-semitic views.

‘blatant racism’

In a statement, Spurs said: “It’s astounding in this day and age to read such blatant anti-semitism published on a social platform by someone who is still afforded air time on a radio station on which he has previously broken broadcast impartiality rules.”

Galloway has been the host of “The Mother of All Talk Shows” on talkRadio since June 2016, broadcasting on Friday evenings.

@georgegalloway

Congratulations to the great people of to the memory of the socialist miner to the fallen #96 to those who fought for justice for them and to the Liverpool dockers. No flags on the Cup!

Galloway fired

The News UK-owned station said Galloway had been fired.

“talkRADIO has terminated George Galloway’s weekly show with immediate effect. As a fair and balanced news provider, talkRADIO does not tolerate anti-semitic views,” the company said.

Ofcom previously found that Galloway breached impartiality rules during discussions on the Labour Party and anti-Semitism.

He had said anti-semitism claims against Jeremy Corbyn were “bogus” and had materialised because of the Labour leader’s “success”.

Sorry 2hear that Mr Galloway: No point in listening 2 Talk Radio now – unless one wishes to listen to only the right-wing Julia Hartley-Brewer.
What were you sacked for – standing up against Israel’s inhumanity towards ?
Hold your head high Mr Galloway.

Galloway’s tweet read: “Congratulations to the great people of Liverpool to the memory of the socialist miner Bill Shankley [sic] to the fallen 96 to those who fought for justice for them and to the Liverpool dockers. No Israel flags on the Cup!’”

Sue threat

Galloway responded to his sacking by threatening to sue talkRadio.

He shared a tweet from a supporter asking why talkRadio employed the “right-wing” commentator Julia Hartley-Brewer.

Following his removal from the Labour Party in 2003, Galloway went on to join the Respect Party and was elected MP for Bethnal Green and Bow (2005-2010) before representing Bradford West from 2012-2015. He also served as a leader of the Respect Party until it dissolved in 2016.

@georgegalloway

I’ve been given a Red Card from @talkRADIO for “over-celebrating” famous victory over Spurs. Not sure it’s the wisest move Mr Murdoch’s team ever made given the history and all.

A long-term opponent of Israel and promoter of anti-Jewish conspiracy theories, Galloway has also appeared on Russian state-backed channels including RT.

An earlier Ofcom ruling found that a Galloway programme breached broadcasting rules in a segment about the poisoning of Sergei Skripal.


The Australian Jewish News

Why I campaigned to ban David Icke

David Icke.

IT’S no easy feat to defeat antisemitism, but as always, it is a fight worth having.

When I discovered that David Icke, a serial hate-monger and conspiracy theorist who says that Jews played a starring role in spreading evil around the world, was visiting our shores to deliver sold-out shows, I knew that we had to sound the alarm bells.

We could not run from this issue, because denial has never been our strategy. We had to stand up and call it like it is, because combating the normalisation of antisemitism has to begin with the Jewish community.

We were going to delegitimise David Icke, name the blood libels and ancient pathological prejudices that he mouths, and say that he has no business being here. We were determined to disrupt his dangerous speech, and to ensure that he does not misuse our freedoms to travel around with a bullhorn, spouting his putrid lies.

The easy thing would have been to sweep this under the rug and to turn a blind eye. After all, he had been here before.

But complacency is never in order when dealing with a man who has made mendacious, demonising, dehumanising allegations about Jews.
Especially not in these supercharged times when all forms of assaults against Jews have skyrocketed, when once taboo trip-wires are being crossed, and when boundaries of mainstream expression are transgressed.

As history has taught us, polite silence is acquiescence, and acquiescence is complicity. As Bonhoeffer said, before being murdered by the Nazis, “Not to speak is to speak. Not to act, is to act.”

Avoiding a conflict and the kind of abuse I know would rain on me, could not come at the expense of our community’s wellbeing and sense of security. We had to fight the darkness that Icke spews with light, and the lies he delivers with truth. Ignoring this individual with his poisonous rhetoric, would have signalled to everyone that we find it acceptable, okay and normal to defame Jews.

As always, I thought of the victims and the Holocaust survivors, who would wake up in the morning knowing that a man who claims that the Jews funded Hitler is free to roam here and to spread his harmful and contemptuous canards. And so, we launched a public media campaign, calling on the government to revoke Icke’s visa.

Icke’s antisemitism is often cloaked by trading sound bites about his ‘lizard theories’. I knew that we had to provide the government with a smoking gun, with irrefutable evidence. Though it made my skin crawl, I delved into the cesspool of his speeches and writings, and analysing, page by page, his book And The Truth Shall Set you Free.

Looking through this dark text, it provided me with a truckload of quotes that demonstrated, beyond doubt, Icke’s antisemitism.
For the first time ever, I can reveal parts of the information that we provided to the government in making our ironclad case.

Here is some of what Icke claims: The Jews are responsible for WWI, WWII, the Russian Revolution and, “financed Hitler to power in 1933 and made the funds available for his rearmament”; the Jews wrote The Protocols of the Elders of Zion; violent neo-Nazi organisations like the “‘far-right’ group, Combat 18, is a front for the sinister Anti-Defamation League, the United States arm of the Israeli/Rothschild secret service, Mossad”; Jews are responsible for the slave trade and control the Ku Klux Klan; Jews are behind antisemitic attacks such as desecration of graves, assaults and terrorists attacks; Jews bankrolled Hitler and the Holocaust; the Global Elite (the Jews) along with the Mossad were responsible for the Oklahoma bombing; Holocaust denial should be taught at schools, and those who deny the Holocaust are not Nazis or apologists for Hitler.

This decision was a victory for decency and for our core values of equality and respect for all, and I applaud the Minister for Immigration, David Coleman, for the admirable act of unflinching moral courage. It reaffirmed that freedom of speech has to be balanced with the need to limit hate, and that being safe from racial and religious vilification is a core guarantor of any democracy.

I am also heartened that the Liberal and Labor candidates for Macnamara, Kate Ashmor and Josh Burns, locked arms with me in joining the chorus of voices advocating for a ban.

It’s been a tough week for the three of us as the sewer lids have been taken off. We have been rocked by a flood of blood-chilling messages and threats, most too horrifying to reprint. These unvarnished displays of venom tell us that we are not home yet, that there is a long road ahead in ensuring that antisemitism never becomes deeply embedded in the inner core of Australia’s culture.

I’m also gratified by the scores of phone calls and messages, from people across the social, ethnic and political spectrum, and from around the world, who have saluted our stance.

Let’s face it, no one stomped on Icke’s freedom to express his noxious views. He can do so from England and on his social media. But not here.

Words of hate and incitement matter, and often escalate into thuggish intolerance and real-life violence.
When people are told that Jews are bad and malevolent, members of a shadowy cabal responsible for the world’s ills, they feel empowered to harass, demean, degrade and carry out attacks against them.

This cancer invalidates our dignity, it says that we are not Australians, that we are not worthy of respect, that we should go back where we came from. It makes our kids, in particular those who proudly wear their Judaism on their hearts and sleeves, feel less safe and less comfortable walking the streets or in school.

And to those who still wishfully think that we are somehow immune from the lows of Europe, I say, “We should not wait until Australia becomes another Malmo, Brussels, Toulouse, Copenhagen.”

At the end of the day, this righteous decision communicates the message that Australia stands for better, that it will continue to be a safe haven for us all, and that the likes of David Icke are not welcome here. And may it always be so.

Proof That Liberalism Is A Cult – Amazing Polly


What is ‘Liberalism’?

Renegade Editor’s Note: Please do not take this as an endorsement of conservatism, by either this site or the author of this piece, as we routinely reject the fraud of the right-wing.

By Revilo P. Oliver

An excerpt from Dr. Oliver’s book America’s Decline: The Education of a Conservative (Londinium Press, London, 1981)

“Liberalism” is a succedaneous religion that was devised late in the Eighteenth Century and it originally included a vague deism. Like the Christianity from which it sprang, it split into various sects and heresies, such as Jacobinism, Fourierism, Owenism, Fabian Socialism, Marxism, and the like. The doctrine of the “Liberal” cults is essentially Christianity divested of its belief in supernatural beings, but retaining its social superstitions, which were originally derived from, and necessarily depend on, the supposed wishes of a god. This “Liberalism,” the residue of Christianity, is, despite the fervor with which its votaries hold their faith, merely a logical absurdity, a series of deductions from a premise that has been denied.

The dependence of the “Liberal” cults on a blind and irrational faith was long obscured or concealed by their professed esteem for objective science, which they used as a polemic weapon against orthodox Christianity, much as the Protestants took up the Copernican restoration of heliocentric astronomy as a weapon against the Catholics, who had imprudently decided that the earth could be stopped from revolving about the sun in defiance of Holy Writ by burning intelligent men at the stake or torturing them until they recanted. Pious Protestants would naturally have preferred a cozy little earth, such as their god described in their holy book, but they saw the advantage of appealing to our racial respect for observed reality to enlist support, while simultaneously stigmatizing their rivals as ignorant obscurantists and ridiculous ranters.

The votaries of “Liberalism” would have much preferred to have the various human species specially created to form one race endowed with the fictitious qualities dear to “Liberal” fancy, but the cultists saw the advantage of endorsing the findings of geology and biology, including the evolution of species, in their polemics against orthodox Christianity to show the absurdity of the Jewish version of the Sumerian creation-myth. The hypocrisy of the professed devotion to scientific knowledge was made unmistakable when the “Liberals” began their frantic and often hysterical efforts to suppress scientific knowledge about genetics and the obviously innate differences between the different human species and between the individuals of any given species. At present, the “Liberals” are limited to shrieking and spitting when they are confronted with inconvenient facts, but no one who has heard them in action can have failed to notice how exasperated they are by the limitations that have thus far prevented them from burning wicked biologists and other rational men at the stake.

It is unnecessary to dilate on the superstitions of “Liberalism.” They are obvious in the cult’s holy words. “Liberals” are forever chattering about “all mankind,” a term which does have a specific meaning, as do parallel terms in biology, such as “all marsupials” or “all species of the genus Canis,” but the fanatics give to the term a mystic and special meaning, derived from the Zoroastrian myth of “all mankind” and its counterpart in Stoic speculation, but absurd when used by persons who deny the existence of Ahuru Mazda or a comparable deity who could be supposed to have imposed a transcendental unity on the manifest diversity of the various human species. “Liberals” rant about “human rights” with the fervor of an evangelist who appeals to what Moses purportedly said, but a moment’s thought suffices to show that, in the absence of a god who might be presumed to have decreed such rights, the only rights are those which the citizens of a stable society, by agreement or by a long usage that has acquired the force of law, bestow on themselves; and while the citizens may show kindness to aliens, slaves, and horses, these beings can have no rights. Furthermore, in societies that have been so subjugated by conquest or the artful manipulation of masses that individuals no longer have constitutional rights that are not subject to revocation by violence or in the name of “social welfare,” there are no rights, strictly speaking, and therefore no citizens — only masses existing in the state of indiscriminate equality of which “Liberals” dream and, of course, a state of de facto slavery, which their masters may deem it expedient, as in the United States at present, to make relatively light until the animals are broken to the yoke.

“Liberals” babble bout “One World,” which is to be a “universal democracy” and is “inevitable,” and they thus describe it in the very terms in which the notion was formulated, two thousand years ago, by Philo Judaeus, when he cleverly gave a Stoic coloring to the old Jewish dream of a globe in which all the lower races would obey the masters whom Yahweh, by covenant, appointed to rule over them. And the “Liberal” cults, having rejected the Christian doctrine of “original sin,” which, although based on a silly myth about Adam and Eve, corresponded fairly well to the facts of human nature, have even reverted to the most pernicious aspect of Christianity, which common sense had held in check in Europe until the Eighteenth Century; and they openly exhibit the morbid Christian fascination with whatever is lowly, proletarian, inferior, irrational, debased, deformed, and degenerate. This maudlin preoccupation with biological refuse, usually sicklied over with such nonsense words as ‘underprivileged [!],’ would make sense, if it had been decreed by a god who perversely chose to become incarnate among the most pestiferous of human races and to select his disciples from among the illiterate dregs of even that peuplade, but since the “Liberals” claim to have rejected belief in such a divinity, their superstition is exposed as having no basis other than their own resentment of their betters and their professional interest in exploiting the gullibility of their compatriots.

In the Eighteenth Century, Christians whose thinking was cerebral rather than glandular, perceived that their faith was incompatible with observed reality and reluctantly abandoned it. A comparable development is taking place in the waning faith of “Liberalism,” and we may be sure that, despite the cult’s appeal to masses that yearn for an effortless and mindless existence on the animal level, and despite the prolonged use of public schools to deform the minds of all children with “Liberal” myths, the cult would have disappeared, but for the massive support given it today, as to the Christian cults in the ancient world, by the Jews, who have, for more than two thousand years, battened on the venality, credulity, and vices of the races they despise.

There is one crucial fact that we must not overlook, if we are to see the political situation as it is, rather than in the anamorphosis of some ‘ideology,’ i.e., propaganda-line, whether “Liberal” or “conservative.” The real fulcrum of power in our society is neither the votaries of an ideological sect nor the Jews, clear-sighted and shrewd as they are, but the intelligent members of our own race whose one principle is an unmitigated and ruthless egotism, an implacable determination to satisfy their own ambitions and lusts at whatever cost to their race, their nation, and even their own progeny. And with them we must reckon the bureaucrats, men who, however much or little they may think about the predictable consequences of the policies they carry out, are governed by a corporate determination to sink their probosces ever deeper into the body politic from which they draw their nourishment. Neither of these groups can be regarded as being “Liberal” or as having any other political attitude from conviction. The first are guarded by the lucidity of their minds, and the second by their collective interests, from adhesion to any ideology or other superstition.

Bureaucracies contain, of course, ambitious men who are climbing upward. One thinks of the bureaucrats who, shortly before the “Battle of the Bulge” in the last days of 1944, were openly distressed “lest a premature victory in Europe compromise our social gains at home,” meaning, of course, that they were afraid that peace might break out before they had climbed another rung on their way to real power. After the defeat of Japan, one of them, a major in the ever-growing battalions of chair-borne troops, too precious to be distressed by such nasty things as fighting battles, frankly lamented his hard luck: if only the war had lasted another three months, and a suitable number of Americans been killed, he would have been promoted to colonel and would also have a “command” that would have qualified him as the foremost expert in his field and thus assured his prosperity after the evil day on which he would have to face the hardships of peace. This attitude may not be admirable, but it is quite common and a political force of the first magnitude, which it would be childish to ignore. It is not, of course, peculiar to the United States. When the National Socialists came to power in Germany, they had many enthusiastic adherents of the same type, who, after the defeat of their nation, did not have to be tortured to become witnesses to the “evils of Nazism” and endorse any lie desired by the brutal conquerors. The attitude, furthermore, though especially prevalent in our demoralized age, is not peculiar to it. One thinks of the Popes who are reported to have told their intimates, “How much profit this fable of Christ has brought us!” And the same realistic appraisal of the main chance was doubtless present in many ecclesiastics who did not reach the top or did not have so much confidence in the discretion of their immediate associates.

Unmitigated egotism, which is necessarily a prime factor on all the higher levels of society in a “democracy,” is a political force with which one cannot cope directly; one can only attack the masks that are worn in public. It is, however, an obstacle that can be circumvented and one which could become an asset. The only strategic consideration here is represented by the truism, “nothing succeeds like success” — a crude statement, which you may find elaborated with elegance and sagacity in the Or culo manual of the great Jesuit, Baltasar Gracián. Our formidable enemies today will become our enthusiastic allies tomorrow, if it appears that we are likely to succeed. I speak, of course, only of members of our race, but the most competent and acute “Liberals,” who today declaim most eloquently about the “underprivileged” and “world peace,” could become tomorrow the most eloquent champions of the hierarchical principle (with which they secretly agree) and a guerre l’outrance against our enemies, if their calculations of the probable future were changed. And, as the Jews well know, the great humanitarian, whose soul shudders today at the very thought of insufficient veneration of the Jews, could become tomorrow grateful to the Jews only for the wonderful idea about gas chambers that was incorporated in the hoax about the “six million,” and he would probably find a real personal satisfaction in putting the idea into practice at last. As Gracián says, the prudent man will ascertain where power really lies, in order to use those who have it and to spurn those who have it not.

If one wishes to talk about principles or even long-range objectives to the representatives of this extremely powerful political force, one should wear motley and cap with bells; the only arguments that will be cogent to them are of the kind that always taught the Reverend Bishop Talleyrand precisely when it would be profitable to kick his less nimble associates in the teeth. Some historians claim, and it may be true, that Talleyrand had principles. If so, he never let them interfere with his conduct. He was a man of great talent and perspicacity, and he always found the right moment and right way to join the winning side in time for it to boost him yet higher. When age at last forced his retirement, he was equally adroit in conciliating impressionable historians by simulating regret for the methods by which he had attained eminence. He is one of the comparatively few perfect models for brilliant and pragmatic young men today.

Many of my conservative readers will find this fact disagreeable or even depressing, but I trust they will not dream of resuscitating an etiolated religion, and will not count too heavily on the spiritual effects of a possible restoration of racial self-respect and sanity. If the fact is unpleasant per se, it is also the basis for some cautious optimism, since it leaves open the possibility that movement on behalf of our race, if it ever seems likely to succeed, could quickly become an avalanche. In certain circumstances — not likely, perhaps, but possible — the despised “racist” of today could be astounded by the discovery that an overwhelming majority of the bureaucracy and of the White men in power above it had always been with him in heart. The sudden conversions will not necessarily be hypocritical, for it is quite likely that there is now such a majority which, ceteris paribus, would prefer to belong to a virile race rather than a dying one. But remember the proviso, ceteris paribus: no personal sacrifices, no risks.


How Liberalism Taken Seriously Leads to White Nationalism

I’ve always thought that the difference between modern Liberals and us is just a matter of degree and not of nature. In this age of mediocrity even Liberalism has become half-hearted and I am convinced that if we follow Liberal arguments and ideals to their most profound conclusions they would more easily support White Nationalism than Multiculturalism.

Classical liberalism is a political ideology that values the freedom of individuals — including the freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, and markets — as well as limited government.

Liberalism nowadays has nothing to do with “Liberty”, rather they are very close minded about morality; they say we are evil, just as a Victorian old woman would condemn two adolescents who kiss outside a Church.

Liberalism has nothing to do with having courage because “liberal” views are the cherished ones by the media. Liberalism has nothing to do with “standing up” against oppression, rather it’s like “sitting down” protected by the shadow of political correctness. This is not heroic, it’s just pathetic, mediocre and lazy!

The moment in which the creativity and sensibility of Liberals unite with the practicality, intelligence and self-assertion of Nationalists into a White Movement, we will become invincible.

I believe the reason Liberalism has hijacked the minds of our young people is because they use art in order to promote it. Naturally if you put so much money and effort into something, you will always find the way to create an appealing container, even if the content is perverse and ugly.

In order to get people to join us, we must appeal to our people’s Liberal and spiritual sensibilities, not just using rational and practical arguments. That’s why I decided to write this article.

Imagine you, as a White activist, are invited by the Jewish media for a televised interview. Obviously their only goal is to ridicule your ideas and portray you as a primitive bigot. But what if you start to answer all the interviewer’s attacks and destroy his arguments with Liberal ideas, just taken to a deeper level?

It would take too much space to recreate a realistic interview, therefore I will only roughly outline the basis of the arguments to get the point.

Interviewer: “You Nationalists have a racist, discriminatory, exclusionary program”

Well, there are honorable and dishonorable ways for fighting for people’s support in the political arena, we only ask to be allowed to use the same weapons as you.

Interviewer: “What does that mean?

Well, promoting Multiculturalism and the mixing of races is in itself a racial program which discriminates against people who prefer not to mix. This program of racial selection for a mixed population carries the assumption that to coerce people into mixing races is morally right. We can think of it as a breeding program driven by fanatic moral opinions.

Interviewer: “Wait a second, we are just promoting freedom and we coerce no one”

Social condemnation is a form of coercion. Which form of coercion is more inhumane – to kick someone’s ass or to exclude him from social life? You can easily make the case that the latter is worse because you can recover from a beating and continue with your life, but if you are ostracized from society and your source of income is taken from you, you cannot survive. That’s evil.

Interviewer: “So you think other races are inferior and must be exterminated?”

We prefer a White society, the same that you prefer a mixed race one. We just want the possibility to fight for people’s support using the same methods as you. If you think there is nothing immoral in asking White people to sacrifice themselves for a mixed race society and to prompt White people not to have White children, we want to do the same. We want to try our luck convincing people that it is moral to sacrifice themselves for a White society and prompt other races not to have children in our societies. You don’t have better morals than us.

Interviewer: “But you know this will have dire consequences for other races [here can go a long list of records of oppression and racism]?”

Anyone who says a medicine has no side effects is a liar” goes a famous saying in the medical profession. Any doctor will tell you that there doesn’t exist a substance in nature which has no side-effects, you just have to choose one whose effects you are willing to tolerate. The same applies to politics; your breeding program for a Multicultural society will have as many dire consequences for at least the same number of people. We just want to be allowed to inform the public about that and let them decide.

I’ll end the interview here to comment about the side effects of NAZI Germany. If tomorrow the Capitalist/Zionist regime were dethroned and we were to scrutinize all the private records and all the inner secrets (as we do now with Hitler’s regime) we would be shocked and dumbfounded about the intrigues, lies, persecutions, injustices, murders, genocide, and plain evil and inhumanity. Even if we considered the lies told about Hitler as true, they would fall short in comparison.

Every regime has dirty secrets, what is surprising is not that Hitler did some morally questionable things; what is surprising is how clean his record is considering the amount of responsibility and the possibility for corruption (that every political entity affords). What is surprising is that after considering human weaknesses, Hitler’s regime created more Beauty and good and had more practical and realistic views than The Hellenistic Empire, The Roman Empire and Modern Capitalism combined. Instead of incessantly repeating Hitlers peccadilloes in order to make them sound bigger than they were, our media could have more new crimes to tell everyday (real ones) from the dethroned Zionists than we can digest in a lifetime.

Liberals are irreverent. They don’t take conventional morals and authorities seriously; they make fun of them and I admire that. So it’s time to show them how to be irreverent about Jewish power, to make fun of the politically correct authority, and not to take “morality” seriously when it comes to other races.

Since many Liberals are so oriented toward Art and Beauty, we can attempt to show them that in the transcendental, objective morals don’t exist; only Beauty and ugliness exist. We show them that we cannot avoid choosing (no one can do everything and be everything), and we should choose Beauty. We can show them the fact that only Beauty can inspire progress, and if we advance it using humanitarian and non-traumatic methods, we can have a chance to win their support.

I myself was as Liberal as one can be, and only after liberating myself (no pun intended) from the yoke of morality I had the courage of taking Liberalism to its final conclusion – the Beauty and creativity of the Aryan race – free of the yoke of Christian/Marxist humanitarian morals, which now, in my mind are only associated with Ugliness, mediocrity and the non-White races.

Chris Hedges: Why America’s smartest are being silenced

Chris Hedges, host of “On Contact” on RT America, joins Rick Sanchez to discuss the falling ratings on establishment networks. He argues that news consumers feel as though “the reality show is over” and that corporate media will have to find a “new trick” if they want viewers to reengage. He points out that “salacious gossip” and “the chattering classes barking at each other” are not actual journalism.

IT’S no easy feat to defeat antisemitism, but as always, it is a fight worth having.

When I discovered that David Icke, a serial hate-monger and conspiracy theorist who says that Jews played a starring role in spreading evil around the world, was visiting our shores to deliver sold-out shows, I knew that we had to sound the alarm bells.

We could not run from this issue, because denial has never been our strategy. We had to stand up and call it like it is, because combating the normalisation of antisemitism has to begin with the Jewish community.

We were going to delegitimise David Icke, name the blood libels and ancient pathological prejudices that he mouths, and say that he has no business being here. We were determined to disrupt his dangerous speech, and to ensure that he does not misuse our freedoms to travel around with a bullhorn, spouting his putrid lies.

The easy thing would have been to sweep this under the rug and to turn a blind eye. After all, he had been here before.

But complacency is never in order when dealing with a man who has made mendacious, demonising, dehumanising allegations about Jews.
Especially not in these supercharged times when all forms of assaults against Jews have skyrocketed, when once taboo trip-wires are being crossed, and when boundaries of mainstream expression are transgressed.

As history has taught us, polite silence is acquiescence, and acquiescence is complicity. As Bonhoeffer said, before being murdered by the Nazis, “Not to speak is to speak. Not to act, is to act.”

Avoiding a conflict and the kind of abuse I know would rain on me, could not come at the expense of our community’s wellbeing and sense of security. We had to fight the darkness that Icke spews with light, and the lies he delivers with truth. Ignoring this individual with his poisonous rhetoric, would have signalled to everyone that we find it acceptable, okay and normal to defame Jews.

As always, I thought of the victims and the Holocaust survivors, who would wake up in the morning knowing that a man who claims that the Jews funded Hitler is free to roam here and to spread his harmful and contemptuous canards. And so, we launched a public media campaign, calling on the government to revoke Icke’s visa.

Icke’s antisemitism is often cloaked by trading sound bites about his ‘lizard theories’. I knew that we had to provide the government with a smoking gun, with irrefutable evidence. Though it made my skin crawl, I delved into the cesspool of his speeches and writings, and analysing, page by page, his book And The Truth Shall Set you Free.

Looking through this dark text, it provided me with a truckload of quotes that demonstrated, beyond doubt, Icke’s antisemitism.
For the first time ever, I can reveal parts of the information that we provided to the government in making our ironclad case.

Here is some of what Icke claims: The Jews are responsible for WWI, WWII, the Russian Revolution and, “financed Hitler to power in 1933 and made the funds available for his rearmament”; the Jews wrote The Protocols of the Elders of Zion; violent neo-Nazi organisations like the “‘far-right’ group, Combat 18, is a front for the sinister Anti-Defamation League, the United States arm of the Israeli/Rothschild secret service, Mossad”; Jews are responsible for the slave trade and control the Ku Klux Klan; Jews are behind antisemitic attacks such as desecration of graves, assaults and terrorists attacks; Jews bankrolled Hitler and the Holocaust; the Global Elite (the Jews) along with the Mossad were responsible for the Oklahoma bombing; Holocaust denial should be taught at schools, and those who deny the Holocaust are not Nazis or apologists for Hitler.

This decision was a victory for decency and for our core values of equality and respect for all, and I applaud the Minister for Immigration, David Coleman, for the admirable act of unflinching moral courage. It reaffirmed that freedom of speech has to be balanced with the need to limit hate, and that being safe from racial and religious vilification is a core guarantor of any democracy.

I am also heartened that the Liberal and Labor candidates for Macnamara, Kate Ashmor and Josh Burns, locked arms with me in joining the chorus of voices advocating for a ban.

It’s been a tough week for the three of us as the sewer lids have been taken off. We have been rocked by a flood of blood-chilling messages and threats, most too horrifying to reprint. These unvarnished displays of venom tell us that we are not home yet, that there is a long road ahead in ensuring that antisemitism never becomes deeply embedded in the inner core of Australia’s culture.

I’m also gratified by the scores of phone calls and messages, from people across the social, ethnic and political spectrum, and from around the world, who have saluted our stance.

Let’s face it, no one stomped on Icke’s freedom to express his noxious views. He can do so from England and on his social media. But not here.

Words of hate and incitement matter, and often escalate into thuggish intolerance and real-life violence.
When people are told that Jews are bad and malevolent, members of a shadowy cabal responsible for the world’s ills, they feel empowered to harass, demean, degrade and carry out attacks against them.

This cancer invalidates our dignity, it says that we are not Australians, that we are not worthy of respect, that we should go back where we came from. It makes our kids, in particular those who proudly wear their Judaism on their hearts and sleeves, feel less safe and less comfortable walking the streets or in school.

And to those who still wishfully think that we are somehow immune from the lows of Europe, I say, “We should not wait until Australia becomes another Malmo, Brussels, Toulouse, Copenhagen.”

At the end of the day, this righteous decision communicates the message that Australia stands for better, that it will continue to be a safe haven for us all, and that the likes of David Icke are not welcome here. And may it always be so.

A Message from the Inner Earth to Humanity

While this may see “out there” for some, the following is a mind transmission I received over the course of a dream and three meditations which began on a journey to the Mount Shasta in California. The message I received felt to be of such great importance that I decided to share it.

Traveling from Berkeley to Mount Shasta, I felt something in my life was shifting. There was an inner feeling that something had shifted and that the energy from the subtle realm was going to transpose down into 3D reality into manifested actuality.

What I didn’t know was that I was going to have an experience that would leave me with a message to share to humanity that was as timely as it was timeless. While much of this message should be already understood by awake people, there is a particular topic that was brought up that I see is often ignored entirely.

In dreamtime, during my first night at Mount Shasta where I was staying at a charming and magical place, I “met” an inner earth that seemed to be from under that sacred mountain whose name sounded like Fotuula.

I was unsure whether this being exists in physical form or in a subtler density version of Earth, so I opened up a channel between myself and the inner Earth collective earlier today and received the message that it is both.

Sometimes they prefer being in the dense 3D version of Earth, but oftentimes they are in a subtler density of Earth.

There are legends that go back to at least 11,000 years to around the time of the Younger Dryas (Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods,  has plenty of supported evidence if you are interested in learning about the comet impact theory that ended an advanced civilization that existed and led to the Great Forgetting).

Native American have talked about the mystical properties and significance of Mount Shasta for a long time, so this is not some modern creation, but rather something that has a long history.

Artwork by Vashta Narada

Fotuula had milky white skin, long white shimmering hair, and a kind and pure presence, while being down to earth. He looked similar to these two beings, although his face was gentler and his build was much stockier than these two. In these images, the artist Vashta Narada states the female is an inner Earth being whereas the male is a Lyrian.

However, at the core of it all, we are all fractals of the Source consciousness so it doesn’t really matter what physical avatar we are embodying in any given moment if we are streaming Source consciousness through us.

Fotuula sat down to speak with me in the dream, as if I was interviewing him, but I woke up before we could talk. Later that day, I drove up with my partner as far as we could up the mountain (there was over 10 feet of snow at higher elevations so most of the way up was closed) and parked at the base to meditate.

I received further information about the inner earth details but I was unable to directly communicate with Fotuula. The next morning when I was back home, I sat in meditation and opened up a channel of communication with him and this time we had a mind transmission that was very insightful and something I feel I am meant to share, on the behalf of Fotuula and the consciousness collective he represents.

A Message to Humanity

I asked him what does he have to say to the surface-dwelling humans? He said that we should purify our avatars and keep our space pure (meaning our physical, mental, emotional, and energetic), as well as surround ourselves with others who are pure in thought, word, and action.

He then said something that is largely ignored by most people in the conscious community from what I’ve see and what I felt was the primary purpose of him speaking with me. He said to avoid becoming a part of groups that appear to appease to the Earthbound conscious community (the awakened ones), but are not pure in their intentions.

He said they act as gatekeepers and blockades so that the consciousness cannot raise past a certain point. These groups corral those who awoke into a place where they can be controlled and whose future actions towards raising individual and collective consciousness can be predicted, thwarted, capped, and hindered.

There is an unseen hyperdimensional aspect to this, that manifests as a “second net” and which is not even known to be an influencing factor by most people in the conscious and spiritual communities, although I have noticed that there is increasing awareness of it. My friend Bernhard Guenther goes deeper into this topic if you are interested in learning more.

This is extremely important, because people who are “awake” seem to still be using, for the sake of ease as one example, online communication platforms that are limiting their ability to productively co-create meaningful and actual solutions and assistance to others.

We should use our inner wisdom and be discerning and intuitive before agreeing to something. Something may look good on the surface, but this may just be a charming false front. Be wise. Be discerning. Be aware.

He also advised to forge alliances with those of pure intention and create a coalition collective in order to accelerate and magnify our positive impact. I feel this is key in this critical in this time of transition. There are thousands of groups focused on helping people and establishing a new conscious paradigm, but they are so fragmented and sometimes unwilling to work with others.

This is self-defeating, because as humans, we are part of the same interconnected family on the same planet. It is in our best interests to put our egos in the back seat and work together; otherwise the active darkness, which knows how to strategize and work effectively and sagaciously, will call the shots.

Are we going to agree to them doing that or will we show that we actually practice what we preach and can work together towards a common goal? This is not to say that we shouldn’t work on an individual level, because that is important as well. However, as humans, we are relational beings and most of us enjoy working with others towards the common good.

As Pierre Teilhard de Chardin once said, “there is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe.”

His final words were that they are reaching out because they believe in us and our ability to break free and co-create our self-defined path into the future present.

Applying the Message

I share this in the hope that this message gets across to others who are awake, but may be agreeing to be part of things that are either intentionally or unintentionally hindering personal and collective evolution. We are in a transition cycle within what is called ‘time‘ where the rubber meets the road… and what an exciting and amazing time it is to be here!

Pornhub joins Twitter users targeting Nunes with #YachtCocaineProstitutes hashtag trending

Rep. Devin Nunes has filed a $150 million lawsuit against McClatchy for derailing his probe into Clinton campaign corruption and ‘Russian interference’ with claims about prostitutes and cocaine, sparking extreme Twitter trolling.

The suit filed in a Virginian state court on Monday court alleges a McClatchy reporter conspired with Republican consultant Liz Mair, in order to impede Nunes’ efforts to investigate “corruption by the Clinton campaign and alleged ‘collusion’ between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential election.”

Mair is accused of conspiring with reporter MacKenzie Mays to spread misleading smears, including reports that Nunes (R-CA), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, “was involved with cocaine and underage prostitutes” at a fundraising event on a yacht.

Most Americans have not had the time nor inclination to make a deep dive into how many federal agencies and employees were involved in the attempted coup of Donald Trump.

Even fewer have considered the ramifications of what such a widespread, inter-agency operation may mean to their own constitutional protections. They should care because our Republic has been gravely imperiled by these deep state actors.

If they can get away with this level of corruption with the intent to incriminate a president, what chance does an ordinary citizen have once they’re targeted?

Call it the Shadow Government, the Deep State, or the Permanent Bureaucracy, it all amounts to the same thing.

A group of indeterminate size, and virtually unremovable because of laws that protect their employment, they make the decisions about policy and who gets elected to implement those policies, not you.

Holy Land – Euro-Med Pushes UK Government To Stop Arming Israel

 June 30, 2019 6:52 AM  Ali Salam Gaza SiegeGaza StripIsraelNews ReportNon-violent action 0

30 JUN
6:52 AM

Expressing deep concern over the British Government’s decision to continue to exporting arms and ammunition to Israel, the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor (Euro-Med) wrote a letter to members of the British parliament, WAFA News reported.

The Geneva-based rights organization noted that in May of 2018, the United Kingdom earned £14 million in arms sales to Israel, while the Israeli regime was simultaneously using lethal force in response to the Great Return March protests in the Gaza Strip.

Addressed to Jeremy Hunt, MP, UK Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, and Tom Tugendhat, MP, Chairman of the Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, the letter claims that the U.K. has not stopped the export of arms, despite knowing that the weapons sold may be used in war crimes or crimes against humanity. The letter went on to say that arms exporting countries are either unaware of the full consequences of the use of these weapons, or deliberately ignore the consequences.

Selin Dyson, Euro-Med’s media and communications officer, declared that arms sales to countries, like Israel, accused of war crimes should be prohibited. Furthermore, she declared that an arms embargo should be applied to Israel, citing the UN investigation published in February 2019, which proclaimed that Israeli soldiers may have committed war crimes in the context of the Great March of Return demonstrations.

Euro-Med’s letter to British parliamentarians calls attention to Article 2-4 of the 1945 Charter of the United Nations, which states ; ‘all Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state’. The only exception to the rule is in the case of self-defence from an armed attack, as stated in Article 51 of the Charter. Palestinian protestors at the Gaza/Israel border are fully unarmed, therefore Israel has no defence.

Euro-Med demanded that the British Government consider the recent ruling in the UK Court of Appeal, which concluded that the sale of arms to Saudi Arabia is ‘irrational and therefore unlawful’ in light of Saudi Arabia’s repeated violation of international humanitarian law during military operations in Yemen.

The letter Euro-Med stated that it believes that Israel’s use of British-made weapons, to shoot unarmed Palestinians in the occupied territories, necessitates an arms embargo.


It’s all about Israel

A recent comment circuitously led me to this post:

And, for that matter, exactly what are the Marines and the rest of our military forces doing in the Middle East? At the very least, shielding Israel from its enemies, and it’s fair to say that they’re fighting Israel’s battles in their place.  Really, does our government give a damn about the fate of any other people in the Middle East?  Hardly.  It’s all about Israel.  You can tell that from how the Presidential candidates fall all over each other assuring Israel and the Israel-Firsters here of their “staunch support” for Israel.

http://ex-army.blogspot.com/2012/02/dumping-on-troops.html

It’s true that I criticize the USA’s troops a lot — mostly because they don’t uphold their oath to obey their Constitution and their own laws of war. But that aside, I still get upset by various other things that they do (like legally-permitted torture and drone strikes that mostly kill non-targeted civilians, among other things).

But as much as I criticize USA troops, I have even MORE criticism for the USA and Israeli civilians who send  USA troops to kill for Israel.  The details below are just a small sample of the history of Israel giving orders to its slaves in Washington, D.C.  Regardless of how glorious USA fighting-men might be, there is no glory that can excuse an ostensibly national military for serving a sometimes-hostile foreign power.

The following is quoted from Bilzerian; it originally appeared at the link:

http://thebilzerianreport.com/the-us-israel-special-relationship-timeline-that-aipac-doesnt-want-you-to-see/

May 14, 1948– Official Recognition- The United States of America becomes the first country to officially recognize Israel as an independent nation.

1949-1973- US-Israel Aid Commences– The United States gives Israel an average of $122 million per year in foreign aid payments.

Summer 1954– Lavon Affair– Israel recruits Egyptian Jews to blow up American and British targets in Egypt. Israel planned on blaming the murderous false-flag attacks on the Muslim Brotherhood in an effort to garner support from the US and Britain. After officially denying any involvement, the Israeli government finally admitted their role in the incident in 2005 by honoring the surviving agents with a certificate of appreciation.

1955-1970- Israel Steals American Uranium to Build It’s First Nuclear Weapons In 2011, the Institute for Research on Middle Eastern Policy examined hundreds of newly de-classified documents from the FBI and CIA and discovered that Israeli spies in collaboration with American Jews stole hundreds of kilograms of weapons grade uranium from US stockpiles and shipped it to Israel. Although Israel does not officially acknowledge the possession of nuclear weapons, their nuclear arsenal is estimated at between 200-300 nuclear weapons. (Source)

1963– AIPAC Formed– The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) “America’s Pro-Israel Lobby” is formed, but refuses to comply with US law and register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. AIPAC has been in violation of federal law for nearly 50 years, but through political contributions and connections, AIPAC officials have remained above prosecution for their many violations of Federal law, including espionage (as addressed later).

June 8, 1967– USS Liberty– Israeli jets and torpedo boats attack the American naval ship USS Liberty with the intention of murdering every sailor on board and then blaming the attack on Egypt. Israel’s goal was to draw America into the Israeli-Arab War. Israel has officially claimed the attack was an “accident,” but every survivor of the USS Liberty claimed that it could not possibly have been an accident given that Israeli jets flew directly over the ship hours earlier on several occasions and one pilot flew so close that he waved to the US sailors, and the sailors waved back. Given the proximity of the jets and the surrounding facts of the incident, there is no question that Israel knew whose ship it was. Lt. General Marshall Carter, the director of the NSA, told congress the attack, “couldn’t be anything else but deliberate.” A later coverup ensued, and in 2002, Captain Ward JAGC senior counsel for the court of inquiry claimed that the court of inquiry’s findings were intended to coverup what was a deliberate attack by Israel on a ship it knew to be American.

1975–  Oil Guarantee-  The Jewish US Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, secretly brokered a deal in which the United States of America guaranteed Israel’s oil supply in the event of a crisis. The 1975 Israel-United States Memorandum of Understanding (see the full text here) required the United States to maintain an oil reserve for Israel and guarantee the shipping of that oil to Israel in times of emergency. This deal has cost the United States more than a hundred billion dollars since it was first enacted. The most troubling aspect of this deal was not the cost however, but the stipulation that in case of an oil emergency in which both the US and Israel needed oil, the US would give its oil to Israel. Section 3 (b):

 If the oil Israel needs to meet all of its normal requirements for domestic consumption is unavailable for purchase in circumstances where’ quantitative restrictions through embargo or otherwise also prevent the United States from procuring oil to meet its normal requirements, the United States Government will promptly make oil available for purchase by Israel in accordance with the International Energy Agency conservation and allocation formula as applied by the United States Government, in order to meet Israel’s essential requirements. If Israel is unable to secure the necessary means to transport such oil to Israel, the United States Government will make every effort to help Israel secure the necessary means of transport.

This is oil that would have been used to heat homes during the winter, power ambulances, and provide the fuel for tractors to farm America’s agricultural lands. To put this into perspective, in the event of an oil crisis, the fuel that Americans would need to heat their homes, get them to work, and produce food would go to Israel. This agreement very well could have starved tens of thousands of Americans in order to save Israelis if an oil crisis would have taken place.

1978– US Starts Paying Egypt $1.3 Billion Annually In Exchange For Maintaining Good Relations With Israel- John McCain admitted in a CNN interview that US-Egyptian aid was essentially a bribe to maintain good relations with Israel. The aid was pledged during a US-brokered peace negotiation between Egypt and Israel, and began to be distributed just after the signing of the Egypt-Israel peace accord.

1980-1981- Israel Teams Up With Republicans to Defeat Jimmy Carter- During the Iran hostage crisis of 1979-1981, Israel, upset at President Jimmy Carter’s attempt to create a peaceful two-state solution in Palestine, used its clandestine operations in Iran to prevent American hostages from being released before Carter’s re-election bid. Carter wrote in his White House Diaries that Israel was purposefully thwarting the peace process with Palestine so it could continue to settle on Palestinian land. History has certainly proven Carter right, and Peter Beinart, the author of The Crisis of Zionism confirms this fact by investigating every major Israeli-Palestinain peace negotiation, and pointing out Israel’s efforts to subvert them. According to Consortium News, Israel used its operatives in Iran to ensure that US hostages were not released before the election, which doomed Carter’s chances for re-election. The hostages were released immediately after Reagan’s inauguration, and Israel was subsequently caught shipping US weapons to Iran after an Israeli chartered plane crashed in the Soviet Union. Israel claimed to have the Reagan administration’s approval for the transfer. As the Consortium article points out, recent discoveries make the cooperation between the Israelis and Republicans to remove a US President by using American hostages as political pawns, impossible to ignore.

1980-1990- Israel Steals American Technology and Equipment at Unprecedented Levels- According to the Israeli newspaper Hareetz, “It is worth mentioning that in the 1980s, regardless of Jonathan Pollards’ espionage activities for Israel, Israeli companies and individuals were involved many cases of  technological espionage, stealing U.S. secrets, technology and equipment. The most outstanding case involved Milco, a U.S. based company owned by Israeli tycoon Arnon Milchan, which bought and shipped equipment with which could have also been used as triggers for nuclear weapons.” Recently released FBI documents revealed that current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was integrally involved in the Milco incident.

1982- Sabra and Shatila Massacres– The Israeli military purposefully allowed a right-wing Lebanese militia to enter two Palestinian refugee camps, which were under Israel’s control, and rape, murder, and dismember 800 civilians. Nearly all of the dead were women, children, and elderly men. In 1983, an Israeli investigation concluded that then Defense Minister Ariel Sharon bore “personal responsibility” for failing to prevent the massacre. The New York Times recently uncovered de-classified transcripts of conversations between US officials and Israeli officials, in which Israeli officials misled the Americans about the events in Beirut, and bullied them into accepting outrageous accusations that the Palestinian women and children were “terrorists,” and therefore deserved to be massacred. According to the New York Times, “The Sabra and Shatila massacres severely undercut America’s influence in the Middle East, and its moral authority plummeted.” Only a year later, in 1983, the US marine barracks were bombed in Lebanon, in which 241 marines were killed.

1985– Jonathan Pollard Incident– A Jewish American named Jonathan Pollard was caught stealing American secrets and selling them to Israel. At first, Israel denied any involvement in the incident, but later admitted complicity in 1998. The wife of Pollard’s handler, Avi Sella, worked for the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), and Pollard later admitted that a prominent ADL member was deeply involved in the spying. Like AIPAC, the ADL does not register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act as per the law, even though it works closely with the Mossad, and has been caught spying on Americans for Israel. Amazingly, the ADL even had the gumption to shamelessly appeal to President Clinton in 1993 to commute their spy’s sentence. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has also campaigned for Pollard’s release.

1987– Israel Starts Receiving Regular Payments of More Than $3 Billion Per Year. The real US-Israel aid is estimated to be $15-$20 billion per year when valuable military equipment deemed “scrapped”, loan guarantees, under the table aid, and preferential contracts are factored in.

1990– First Gulf War. Saddam agreed to withdraw from Kuwait if Israel complied with international law and withdrew from Palestine. Instead of encouraging Israel to abide by international law, the US launched an attack on Iraq, even though Iraq did not threaten America’s oil supply nor pose any danger to US interests. Israel did not send any troops or material support for the invasion.

1993- ADL Spying Scandal– San Francisco newspapers broke the story that the Jewish Anti-Defamation League, which has close ties to Israel, had been paying American police officers for confidential information, illegally wire-tapping phones, and even dumpster diving to acquire  private information on American citizens. The Anti-Defamation League later sold the information to the Israeli and South African governments. Among the individuals the ADL spied on were civil rights activists deemed “anti-Israel”, Congressmen such as Nanci Pelosi, reporters, labor unions, the NAACP, African National Congress, and the Rainbow Coalition. Presumably the ADL was going to use any damning material acquired during their spying efforts to blackmail these politicians and influential people into changing their negative stances on Israel. Just one of their spies, Roy Bullock, had compiled files on more than 9,800 Americans and 950 organizations spanning three decades. After the search of the ADL offices, the San Francisco District Attorney said the ADL was conducting a “national spy network.”

1993– AIPAC President David Steiner Caught on Tape Bragging About his Organization’s Incredible Power in America. Steiner first admitted to manipulating the US Secretary of State into giving Israel more foreign aid. Steiner said he, ”met with [Secretary of State] Jim Baker and I cut a deal with him. I got, besides the $3 billion, you know they’re looking for the Jewish votes, and I’ll tell him whatever he wants to hear … Besides the $10 billion in loan guarantees which was a fabulous thing, $3 billion in foreign, in military aid, and I got almost a billion dollars in other goodies that people don’t even know about.”

In the same conversation, Steiner said he would support any politician who has been good to Israel over his own brother. He also discussed his efforts to get Jewish, and pro-Israel candidates re-elected, even by paying for a rigged poll. Steiner was attempting to raise money for dozens of pro-Israel candidates through his position at AIPAC, even though the organization claims that it doesn’t engage in such behavior. In the conversation, Steiner asked a potential Jewish donor to get his children to write checks in order to subvert political donation laws.

Steiner also said, “We gave two employees from AIPAC leave of absences to work on the [Clinton] campaign. I mean, we have a dozen people in that campaign, in the headquarters….and they’re all going to get big jobs. We have friends. I also work with a think tank, the Washington Institute. I have Michael Mandelbaum and Martin Indyk being foreign policy advisers. Steve Speigel—we’ve got friends—this is my business.”

“I talked to Bill Clinton [and he made a commitment that] he’s going to be very good to us.” ”One of my officers, Monte Friedkin, is one of the biggest fund-raisers for them [Clintons]. I mean, I have people like that all over the country.”

When asked if he knows who Bill Clinton would put on the Supreme Court if elected, Steiner replied, “We’re talking now. We don’t have no commitments yet. We’re just negotiating. We’re more interested right now, in the Secretary of State and the Secretary of National Security Agency. That’s more important to us.” He also said, “we are negotiating” who will be Secretary of State.

1993- Israel Caught Selling US Military Secrets to China– Israel sold $2-3 billion worth of sensitive US military technology to China. This was technology that the US had specifically forbidden to be delivered to China in anyway shape or form, as it would undermine America’s national security. Read this link for the full story.

1996 GAO Spy Report The Government Accountability Office reported that Israel spies on the US more than any other ally.

2000-2003 Iraq Sanctions-  In 2000, AIPAC distributed a letter asking AIPAC members to put pressure on the US Congress and the President to ramp up sanctions on Iraq and block the oil for food program, which was providing Iraqi civilians with much needed food and medicine. In 2003, AIPAC attempted to block a bill that would have allowed US companies to export food and medicine to Iraqi civilians. AIPAC took the position that the food and medicine would not help the Iraqi people, which is obviously untrue, and that the bill would hasten Saddam’s effort to procure weapons of mass destruction. Saddam was of course not building weapons of mass destruction, and the AIPAC efforts ended up murdering thousands of Iraqi civilians.

September 11, 2001– Five Dancing Israelis– The terrorists who perpetrated the worst attack on America in its history stated on record that their motivation was America’s unabashed support for the apartheid regime of Israel. Five dancing Israelis were actually caught filming the world trade center attacks and dancing in celebration afterwards. When the Israelis were caught in a van that had contained explosives, they said we are all on the same side now against the Palestinians. The dancing Israelis later admitted on an Israeli talk show that they were there to document the event. Before the US government classified all information on Israel’s involvement in 9-11, the FBI officially concluded that Israel had to have known of the attack before 9-11-2001 and didn’t warn the US. After the attacks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “We are benefitting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq.” He also said, “these events have swung American public opinion in our favor.”At best, Israel knew of the attacks before hand and did not warn America because of the strategic support against the Palestinians that it would bring. At worst, Israel had a hand in planning the attacks.

2001- Israeli Spies Deported– More than 60 Israeli spies were arrested and detained. Most of them failed lie-detector tests about their spying activities on the US and their connection to the September 11, 2001 attacks.

 

2002- Harvard Economist Estimates Total US-Israel Aid At $3 trillion. Dr. Thomas R. Stauffer, a world renowned economist who taught economics and Middle East studies at Harvard, as well as serving twice in the Executive Office of the President on a task force for oil imports and controls, estimated that as of 2002 (in 2002 dollars) Israel has cost the US $3 trillion. His estimate took into account direct military aid, political support, oil price increases as a result of conflicts, and peripheral/hidden foreign aid.

In Stauffer’s estimation, US aid to Israel costs 275,000 American jobs per year due to unfair trade imbalances and sanctions on Israel’s enemies. In one example of under the table aid, Stauffer pointed out that the US actually gave Russia and Romania billions of dollars in undeclared aid to facilitate Jews moving to Israel. The US has also spent hundreds of billions in the region to secure friendly relationships with Israel. John McCain admitted in an interview that US aid to Egypt is really just a bribe so the Egyptians will maintain friendly relations with Israel. The US has also given Turkey and Greece billions for the same purpose.

A summary of Stauffer’s breakdown can be found here: 

2003– Iraq War–  In January 2003, AIPAC executive director Howard Kohr stated, “quietly lobbying Congress to approve the use of force in Iraq” was one of AIPAC’s successes over the past year.” Jeffrey Goldberg reported during a profile piece of AIPAC’s policy director Steven J. Rosen that, “AIPAC lobbied Congress in favor of the Iraq war.”

In addition, the US media, which by this point was almost completely controlled by Jewish American supporters of Israel (see this link for proof), refused to investigate the validity of the government’s accusation of Iraq’s possession of weapons of mass destruction. The mainstream media then went a step further by criticizing anti-war activists and even called them traitors who were against the troops. Many Americans leaders and reporters came out after the war and criticized the media for its pro-war propaganda, but very few spoke of the Israeli connection for fear of being labeled anti-Semitic.

Even though Israel aggressively lobbied America to attack Iraq, they committed no troops or resources to the struggle.

2005– AIPAC Spying Scandal– A pentagon analyst pleads guilty to passing military secrets to two AIPAC employees en route to Israel. After some political wrangling, all charges were dropped against the two Jewish AIPAC employees in 2009, even though the analyst agreed to testify against the AIPAC employees, and the government had overwhelming evidence to prosecute. It was later reported by Time magazine that Jane Harman, a Jewish congresswoman, was bribed by AIPAC to lobby the Department of Justice to drop the spying charges against the AIPAC employees. In 2009, CQ politics reported that Harman was caught on a NSA wiretap telling an Israeli agent that she would lobby the Department of Justice to drop the case.

2008-2009- Israel Fires White Phosphorous Shells Into Civilian Locations, Including a Crowded Refugee Camp. At first, the Israeli army categorically denied the use of white phosphorous gas on civilians (a war crime), but then later admitted it when video footage made it impossible to deny. These weapons were made in the USA.  The entire planet criticized the barbaric and internationally illegal war crimes, but President Bush and the United States supported the Israeli atrocities, which hurt America’s standing in the world.

2010- Israel is Caught Stealing America’s Nuclear Triggers– The United States Bureau of Industry and Security released a report concluding that nuclear triggers were illegally exported to Israel. (Source)

2010– Israel Bribes US News Outlets for Biased Stories– Newly declassified files prove that Israel has actually been covertly paying American media outlets tens of millions of dollars to publish pro-Israel stories. Among other things, the documents revealed that Israel paid the Atlantic magazine $50,000 to disrupt a US peace proposal that would have allowed Palestinian refugees to return to their homes in Israel. These documents came from a Senate hearing, which ended up being censored by American politicians who received significant campaign financing from non-gentile sources. The bribed senators even went as far as sealing the most damning documents from the investigation.

 

January 13, 2012- Atlanta Jewish Times Owner Claims the Mossad is Considering Assassinating President Obama- Andrew Adler, the owner of the Atlanta Jewish Times, writes an article stating that Israel has three options in order to defend itself. 1. Attack Hezbollah and Hamas 2. Defy the US and attack Iran 3. “give the go-ahead for U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place, and forcefully dictate that the United States policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies.” He went on to say, “Yes you read three correctly. Order a hit on a US President in order to preserve Israel’s existence.” He claimed to know for sure that this option was already “being discussed in Israel’s most inner circles”, and given his high powered Israeli friends, you can bet that he is correct.

April 18, 2012- The Bilzerian Report Estimates the Total Cost of America’s Relationship with Israel, Adjusted for Inflation and Including the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, to be in Excess of $5 trillion, or $16,000 per American.

July 28, 2012– CIA Reports that Israel is the Largest Spy Threat in the Middle East. The report details numerous incidents of Israeli spies breaking into American diplomats’ homes and offices to steal sensitive material.


UN Human Rights Official: Any Peace Plan Will Fail without Framework of International Law

30 JUN
6:52 AM

Michael Lynk, the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in Palestine, said in a statement, yesterday, that without the framework of international law, any peace plan is destined to fail.

“Without the framework of international law, any peace plan, including the forthcoming proposal from the United States, will crash upon the shoals of political realism,” Lynk was quoted by the official Chinese press agency, Xinhua.

“Prior plans for Middle East peace over the past five decades have all failed, in large part because they did not seriously insist upon a rights-based approach to peace between Israelis and Palestinians,” he added, according to WAFA.

The Special Rapporteur said that international law, on the principles of humanitarian protection, human rights, equality, and justice, has been expressed in hundreds of United Nations resolutions on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

He said that Palestinians and Israelis are entitled to the individual and collective human rights enshrined in international law, including the rights to equality, movement, expression, and association, as well as freedom from discrimination.

“The present international consensus supports a two-state solution, which requires a viable, contiguous and fully sovereign Palestinian state, based on the June 1967 boundaries, with East Jerusalem as its capital, and a meaningful transportation link between the West Bank and Gaza,” he remarked.

He further noted that Israeli settlements across East Jerusalem and the West Bank are a “flagrant violation” of international law, according to the United Nations Security Council resolutions.

“The settlements would have to be removed, both to comply with international law and to enable a viable and sovereign Palestinian state to emerge. ”

Well, it’s happened. It’s real. Mr. Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and Senior Advisor of President Trump has delivered 136 pages of lies, suppositions and conjuring tricks to seduce or compel us Palestinians to accept our fate and surrender our rights. What rights? As far as this document is concerned, Palestinians have no rights whatsoever, and, as for a Palestinian perspective, what is that?

The Palestinians were not even invited to Manama, let alone considered. What about the Israelis? Were they there? Were they invited? On the face of it, no. But, in reality, they were amply represented. What is Jared Kushner if not the team captain for the Greater Israel Project? After all, he is Jewish, an ardent Zionist, an investor in the illegal settlements in Palestine and an advocate, par excellence, for Israeli survival and supremacy.

The Lie Of The Century, as I call it, is just that. A lie. From beginning to end, every word, every supposition of this long-winded deception is to ensure that the Greater Israel Project will advance unhindered, and we, the Palestinians, are to accept the crumbs off the table of our land-lords. Or perish.

But, hang on a minute. How could an occupier who seized our land by brute force be made a legitimate land-lord over us? The answer is simple. In the Trumpian universe, all that matters are power and Mammon. Isn’t this what the ‘Deal of The Century’ is all about? American/Israeli power exercised over us Palestinians without mercy? And, what about the money? Oh, yes. There is money, but it is not American nor Israeli money. It’s Arab money — to be extorted from despotic, Arabic regimes in the Gulf, as per usual. Trump demands and the Arab Regimes of the Gulf and Saudi Arabia oblige. If they don’t, as Mr. Trump intimated, their shaky thrones wouldn’t last a week without US protection.

Mr. Kushner promised $50 billion in Arab money to be divided between Palestine, Jordan and Egypt. Nowhere in the document was there any mention of Palestinian political rights, the right of return of the Palestinian refugees or even the Israeli occupation of Palestine. All was conveniently kicked into touch because it doesn’t matter, you see. What matters is Israeli survival and supremacy and the continued, rapid march of the Greater Israel Project.

I say ‘rapid march’ because who is to stop it? The Palestinians do not have an army, an air force, a navy or even a coalition to stop this march. Jordan has already succumbed to American threats and promises of prosperity. The same goes for Egypt, especially under the hand-picked President Abdul Fatah Alsisi, whose sole purpose is to neuter Egypt and serve as a facilitator for American and Israeli hegemony in our area.

Syria? Western powers, Israel and despotic Arab/Muslim states have made sure that Syria is taken out of the equation by embroiling it in a 7-year long devastating war.

The Gulf States? Saudi Arabia? Instead of stopping this advance of Greater Israel they are facilitating it by making a frantic rush towards normalization with Israel and to form a coalition of the willing to combat a perceived threat from another Muslim country, Iran. The honorable exception is the State of Kuwait, who refused to attend this farce and reaffirmed their total support of Palestinian rights and aspirations.

Let’s look closely at the word, ‘surrender’. Many of you might remember an article I wrote recently, entitled, ‘Surrender Or Die’. It didn’t take too long for the Israelis to prove me right. There it is. From the Grand weasel’s mouth, none other than Danny Danon, the Israeli Ambassador to the UN. In an article entitled, ‘What’s Wrong With Palestinian Surrender”, published in the New York Times on June 24th, one day before the Manama ‘Workshop’. “Surrender”, he wrote,” is the recognition that in a contest, staying the course will prove costlier than submission.”

There you have it. To the victor the spoils.

And, then, comes the other Grand Weasel, Mr. Jared Kushner, to deliver the message of surrender to a room full of weasels. All of these aforementioned weasels, who have been gnawing at our heels for over a century, omitted to consider one vital point: The Palestinian character and pride.

Surrender is not in our character. We’d rather die standing up, defending our rights than exist, kneeling at the feet of our self-appointed land-lords and benefactors.

Just in case any of those weasels calling for our surrender might have any interest in what we Palestinians want, here is how Executive Member of the PLO, Dr. Hanan Ashrawi, put it:

Google: The Monster That Has To Be Destroyed

Google: The Monster That Has To Be Destroyed

Google & YouTube have violated the public trust by lying to official representatives about their company wide censorship and political bias. They continue to lie to their users and content creators. They are involved in ongoing election meddling in the United States and several other countries. Google needs to be cut off from corporate welfare and they should not have special immunity under section 230 of the communications decency act. It’s time to break up Google and recognize the danger they pose to countries that value truth, trust and freedom of speech.


Here’s What Jewish Google and Jewish Facebook Know About You

A slice of the data that Facebook keeps on the author: ‘This information has millions of nefarious uses.’

WANT TO freak yourself out? I’m going to show just how much of your information the likes of Facebook and Google store about you without you even realising it.

Google Knows Where You’ve Been

Google stores your location (if you have location tracking turned on) every time you turn on your phone. You can see a timeline of where you’ve been from the very first day you started using Google on your phone.

Click on this link to see your own data: google.com/maps/timeline?…

Here is every place I have been in the last 12 months in Ireland. You can see the time of day that I was in the location and how long it took me to get to that location from my previous one.

Google Knows Everything You’ve Ever Searched — and Deleted

Google stores search history across all your devices. That can mean that, even if you delete your search history and phone history on one device, it may still have data saved from other devices.

The Data Google Has on You Can Fill Millions of Word Documents

Google offers an option to download all of the data it stores about you. I’ve requested to download it and the file is 5.5GB big, which is roughly 3m Word documents.

This link includes your bookmarks, emails, contacts, your Google Drive files, all of the above information, your YouTube videos, the photos you’ve taken on your phone, the businesses you’ve bought from, the products you’ve bought through Google …

They also have data from your calendar, your Google hangout sessions, your location history, the music you listen to, the Google books you’ve purchased, the Google groups you’re in, the websites you’ve created, the phones you’ve owned, the pages you’ve shared, how many steps you walk in a day …

‘A snapshot of the data Facebook has saved on me.’

Facebook Stores Everything From Your Stickers to Your Login Location

Facebook also stores what it thinks you might be interested in based off the things you’ve liked and what you and your friends talk about (I apparently like the topic “girl”).

Somewhat pointlessly, they also store all the stickers you’ve ever sent on Facebook (I have no idea why they do this. It’s just a joke at this stage).

They also store every time you log in to Facebook, where you logged in from, what time, and from what device.

And they store all the applications you’ve ever had connected to your Facebook account, so they can guess I’m interested in politics and web and graphic design, that I was single between X and Y period with the installation of Tinder, and I got a HTC phone in November.

(Side note, if you have Windows 10 installed, this is a picture of just the privacy options with 16 different sub-menus, which have all of the options enabled by default when you install Windows 10)

They Can Access Your Webcam and Microphone

The data they collect includes tracking where you are, what applications you have installed, when you use them, what you use them for, access to your webcam and microphone at any time, your contacts, your emails, your calendar, your call history, the messages you send and receive, the files you download, the games you play, your photos and videos, your music, your search history, your browsing history, even what radio stations you listen to.

Here are Some of the Different Ways Google Gets Your Data

I got the Google Takeout document with all my information, and this is a breakdown of all the different ways they get your information.

‘My Google Takeout document.’

Here’s the search history document, which has 90,000 different entries, even showing the images I downloaded and the websites I accessed (I showed the Pirate Bay section to show how much damage this information can do).

‘My search history document has 90,000 different entries.’

Google Knows Which Events You Attended, and When

Here’s my Google Calendar broken down, showing all the events I’ve ever added, whether I actually attended them, and what time I attended them at (this part is when I went for an interview for a marketing job, and what time I arrived).

‘Here is my Google calendar showing a job interview I attended.’

And Google Has Information You Deleted

This is my Google Drive, which includes files I explicitly deleted including my résumé, my monthly budget, and all the code, files and websites I’ve ever made, and even my PGP private key, which I deleted, that I use to encrypt emails.

Google Can Know Your Workout Routine

This is my Google Fit, which shows all of the steps I’ve ever taken, any time I walked anywhere, and all the times I’ve recorded any meditation/yoga/workouts I’ve done (I deleted this information and revoked Google Fit’s permissions).

And They Have Years’ Worth of Photos

This is all the photos ever taken with my phone, broken down by year, and includes metadata of when and where I took the photos.

Google Has Every Email You Ever Sent

Every email I’ve ever sent, that’s been sent to me, including the ones I deleted or were categorised as spam.

And There is More

I’ll just do a short summary of what’s in the thousands of files I received under my Google Activity.

First, every Google Ad I’ve ever viewed or clicked on, every app I’ve ever launched or used and when I did it, every website I’ve ever visited and what time I did it at, and every app I’ve ever installed or searched for.

‘They have every single Google search I’ve made since 2009.’

They also have every image I’ve ever searched for and saved, every location I’ve ever searched for or clicked on, every news article I’ve ever searched for or read, and every single Google search I’ve made since 2009. And then finally, every YouTube video I’ve ever searched for or viewed, since 2008.

This information has millions of nefarious uses. You say you’re not a terrorist. Then how come you were googling Isis? Work at Google and you’re suspicious of your wife? Perfect, just look up her location and search history for the last 10 years. Manage to gain access to someone’s Google account? Perfect, you have a chronological diary of everything that person has done for the last 10 years.

This is one of the craziest things about the modern age. We would never let the government or a corporation put cameras/microphones in our homes or location trackers on us. But we just went ahead and did it ourselves because — to hell with it! — I want to watch cute dog videos.

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook and ‘Holocaust Denial’

by Karl Radl

I WROTE in the edition of the ‘Jewish War on Free Speech’ of 25/07/2018 (1), published at Semitic Controversies, that the building pressure

has been counter-signaled – to my surprise – by Mark Zuckerberg this week after he rejected demands that he actively censor so-called ‘Holocaust Denial’ from Facebook. Zuckerberg’s argument was simple enough in that while he believes that ‘Holocaust Deniers’ – see how the use of weasel words is meant to make you believe they are inherently evil people – are wrong, they are not ‘intentionally doing so’ and thus it is better to allow relatively free discussion rather than simply censoring it as ‘wrong think’. (2)

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t think Mark Zuckerberg is genuinely interested in free speech, but rather because Facebook is facing the beginning of a crisis with users abandoning the site. (3) To enforce yet another draconian ban and kicking yet further users from his website is hardly in Zuckerberg’s business interests in such a situation.

Yet, the Jews have been shrieking like bats out of hell across the political spectrum that Zuckerberg is ‘enabling Holocaust Denial’, (4) is actively putting ‘Holocaust Denial’ at the top of search results (5) and/or that he is ‘anti-Semitic’ himself. (6)

Despite this and claims that Zuckerberg’s executives at Facebook want to censor all ‘Holocaust Denial’ on the social media platform (7), Zuckerberg has strongly defended his position and refused to cave in (8) as has his sister Randi. (9)

Zuckerberg’s reasons are obvious enough and are driven by his business priorities, but yet one has to wonder: what are the Jews afraid of?

Those who fear discussion fear the truth.

It is gratifying to be able to reveal that further evidence has since emerged that, in the days following my article, shares in Facebook tumbled a whopping nineteen percent in one day following a significant slowing of its growth, and whipping one hundred billion dollars off of Facebook’s value. (10)

Zuckerberg directly tied this slowing growth – as I predicted was the case – to the ‘increased security measures’ that have been demanded – primarily by Jewish organizations as well as those affiliated with the state of Israel – and somewhat implemented by Facebook. (11) It is therefore not difficult to see the truth of my contention that Zuckerberg was afraid that increased censorship of the political right would result in the slowing and possible reversal of Facebook’s growth as well as declining profitability.

This, despite bold assurances by mincing soy-boys – such as the BBC’s ‘North America Technology Reporter’ David Lee – that:

Facebook is worried that banning InfoWars would provide fuel to the fire that it silences right-wing voices. It’s not wrong – it would create outrage in some quarters. But for how long?

The social media platform has helped create a lightning-fast news agenda that moves on at an alarming pace. The dramatic stock price hit it suffered in the wake of its biggest crisis, the Cambridge Analytica scandal, has been wiped out.

This too would pass – pretty quickly, I’d wager. More damaging, long-term, will be Facebook’s failure to take the scourge of fake news seriously. (12)

The reality on the ground however doesn’t mesh with Lee’s ideologically-driven fantasies, as is pointedly demonstrated by the fact that he uses the example of Alex Jones – whom he states has two million followers on Facebook – (13) but then thinks that angering two million users – or even say just five hundred thousand of them – by unceremoniously booting Jones off of Facebook wouldn’t impact Facebook.

This is typical of the arrogant out-of-touch attitude common to the liberal Jewish elite – many of whom are pleased to claim to be ‘principled conservatives’ – across the western world. They think that the plebs will just carry on consuming no matter what said elites do to them, because… well… dopamine.

The reality is that this will – and has – trigger anger across the Internet; if there is one thing that the unfiltered discussion board that is the Internet is united about, it is that governments and corporations will not decide what can and cannot be said or discussed. Only the users will do that.

What wins on the Internet is not ‘Fake News’ – as the Left is pleased to claim – but rather a facility of facts. You can have the facts and lose – which is incidentally your fault for losing with a winning hand – but if you facilitate people engaging with those facts – and thus your case — then you will win.

This is what people like David Lee ignore about people like Alex Jones: the latter is extremely adroit at presenting his facts, even if the Internet in general doesn’t take him particularly seriously. Whatever you may think of Alex Jones – and I view him as an amusing snake oil salesman, personally – the fact is that he has the common touch, unlike David Lee.

Or, for that matter, the horde of emotional hand-wringing institutional rags – such as Deutsche Welle, (14) the Daily Mail (15) and the Sun (16) – and leftist politicians – such as Paul Packer in the United States (17) and Yvette Cooper in the UK (18) – as well as Jewish hacks like Jeffrey Salkin. (19)

The simple fact of the matter is that the bourgeois snobbery of the liberal Jewish elite concerning what the goyim shall – and shall not – be able to talk about will backfire and already has as shown by Facebook’s declining growth, profitability, and popularity.

One of the few sane voices in the media on this subject has been Danish editor Flemming Rose, who argued in an Op-Ed for the Washington Post that censoring ‘Holocaust Deniers’ would turn them into ‘martyrs’ and backfire massively. (20)

Rose, who cites Deborah Lipstadt as an ‘expert’, instead advises combating ‘Holocaust Denial’ with debate and facts – which, as a ‘Holocaust Denier’ myself, I welcome – , but doesn’t know enough about the topic to know that the reason the Jews want to make ‘Holocaust Denial’ illegal is not because ‘Holocaust Deniers’ can be ‘refuted with facts’, but rather that the Jews can’t win because we have the facts and the proponents of the ‘Holocaust’ don’t.

Three words: bring it on.

Venezuela: AI Amnesty International in Service of “Empire”

Uncle Sam has a problem in his South American “backyard” with those uppity Venezuelans who insisted on democratically electing Nicolás Maduro as their president instead of by-passing the electoral process and installing the unelected US asset Juan Guaidó. No matter, Amnesty International has come to the rescue with a full-throated defense of US imperialism:

“Faced with grave human rights violations, shortages of medicines and food and generalized violence in Venezuela, there is an urgent hunger for justice. The crimes against humanity probably committed by the authorities must not go unpunished.” – Erika Guevara-Rosas, Americas director at Amnesty International

Amnesty International fails in its broadside to put its claims against the Maduro government in the context of a concerted regime-change campaign, which amounts to war, by the bully from the north. The US is waging an illegal war against Venezuela and Amnesty International’s broadside leaves out this inconvenient fact, egregiously even omitting any mention of sanctions.

As human rights activist Chuck Kaufman of the Alliance for Global Justice noted about Amnesty International (AI): “They don’t seem to even care about their credibility anymore.” A more credible and honest account of what is unfolding in Venezuela, than the hatchet job presented in AI’s May 14thVenezuela: Crimes against humanity require a vigorous response from the international justice system, would have also noted along with the alleged transgressions of the Maduro government:

  • Grave human rights violations. Economists Mark Weisbrot of the Center for Economic and Policy Research and Jeffrey Sachs of Columbia University recently reported that US sanctions on Venezuela are responsible for tens of thousands of deaths. This is the price being exacted on Venezuela, with a prediction for worse to come, for the regime change that AI is implicitly promoting.
  • Shortages of medicines and food. Since 2015, when US President Obama first instituted them, the US has been imposing ever more crippling illegal sanctions on Venezuela expressly to create misery for the population in the hope that it would then turn against their own democratically electedgovernment. The sanctions are specifically designed to suffocate the economy so that Venezuela cannot address its problems. The US government boasts about the impacts of sanctions. Playing the good cop to the US role as bad cop, AI laments the very conditions they are tacitly promoting in asking for ever increasing “punishments.” New US sanctions on Venezuela were imposed on May 10th.
  • Generalized violence. The US government has repeatedly and unapologetically threatened military intervention in Venezuela if the elected government doesn’t abdicate. Short of attacking militarily, the US has waged war against Venezuela by economic and diplomatic means, not to mention low-intensity warfare such as cyber attacks. The extreme rightwing opposition has called for the extra-legal overthrow of the government and has eschewed electoral means for effecting political change. AI is correct in noting that since 2017 new violence has been inflicted on the Venezuelan people but fails to note the role of the opposition in provoking that violence with their guarimbas and other actions. Meanwhile Guaidó, whose popular support in Venezuela is bottoming out, is reported sending his envoy to meet with the US Southern Command to “coordinate.”

How is it possible that an organization purporting to stand for human rights and global justice can so blithely ignore facts that do not fit into their narrative and so obsequiously parrot the Trump-Pompeo-Bolton-Abrams talking points? Why would AI go so far as to meet with the self-appointed Guaidó and then within days issue a report condemning the Maduro government, without also investigating the other side in the conflict?

Unfortunately, this is not the first time AI has shown an imperial bias as it has regarding US-backed regime-change projects in IraqLibyaSyria, and Nicaragua.

Objectively deconstructing the many allegations (e.g., “more than 8,000 extrajudicial executions by the security forces”) made against Venezuela in the AI broadside and its accompanying report remains to be done. Unfortunately, the Empire has a surfeit of resources to churn out propaganda compared to the ability to counter it by genuine humanitarian groups. AI alone has an annual budget of over $300 million. According to sources cited by Wikipedia, AI receives grants from the US State Department, the European Commission, and other governments along with the Rockefeller Foundation.

To conclude, AI’s broadside calls for justice about as often as it calls for punishment with the subtext that punishment of the Empire’s victims is justice. Were AI truly concerned about justice, rather than justifying another US regime-change operation, they would champion the following:

  • Ending the unilateral sanctions by the US on Venezuela, which are illegal under the charters of the United Nations and the Organization of American States.
  • Supporting dialogue between the elected government and the opposition as has been promoted by Mexico, Uruguay, Pope Francis, and most recently by Norway.
  • Condemning regime-change activities and interference in Venezuela’s internal affairs and actively rejecting the US government’s aggressive stance as articulated by US VP Pence: “This is no time for dialogue. This is time for action.”
  • Respecting the sovereignty of Venezuela and restoring normal diplomatic relations between the US and Venezuela.

Sorting Out Reality from Fiction About Venezuela

Last April marked a special anniversary for Cuba but one that we should all reflect upon given the current events in Latin America, particularly in Venezuela. In mid-April 1961 three cities in Cuba were bombed at the same time from the air. Immediately the US government claimed that Cuban defectors carried out the action with Cuban planes and pilots. The media quickly “confirmed the actions”.

These were false flag attacks organized by the US.

In a large mass rally in Havana the next day Fidel Castro pronounced a very important speech where he called John Kennedy and the media liars. That was the speech where Fidel declared the “socialist character” of the Cuban revolution.

US interventions, military and parliamentary coups have been relentless before and since in Latin America. Often they are preceded by outright disinformation in order to misrepresent events and demonize the target government as a prelude to legitimize a more aggressive intervention.

Fast-forward to the 21st Century, pan quickly over the Middle East, and zoom into our Western hemisphere today and you will see Venezuela. Not the country that most Venezuelans want you to see, but the country that the US government and its allies – Canada at the forefront – want you to see. Reportedly, one that needs a regime change.

The level of disinformation about Venezuela has been widely exposed by political analysts like Dan Kovalik and media groups like Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), which indicated that corporate media in the United States has undertaken “a full-scale marketing campaign for regime change in Venezuela”.

In an article last April Time magazine said, “Venezuelans are starving for information”. Venezuelanalysis.com writers responded that, “Creative reporting about Venezuela is ‘the world’s most lucrative fictional genre’“, and it goes on to show how there are three private TV channels, a satellite provider that covers FOX News, CNN and BBC. Anti-government print media is also widely accessible as well as online outlets.

The truth is that people outside Venezuela are starving for reliable information.

The New York Times printed, “Venezuela’s Collapse Is the Worst Outside of War in Decades” with barely a reference to the impact of US sanctions and the billions of dollars stolen from Venezuela as if irrelevant.

Perhaps there is no conventional war in Venezuela, but there is a devastating economic war imposed by unilateral coercive measures, media warfare or infowar. Venezuelans call it guerra mediática. In 2009 Chavez even spoke of “media dictatorship.”

It kills people just the same by virtue of curtailing vital trade, investment and imports in a capitalist world that reacts and panics very quickly at a minor sign of insecurity. Capital flees, leaving the country at the mercy of political imperial attacks.

The US government and its embedded corporate media become the jugglers of disinformation, or equivalently they display what I call a choreography of disinformation.

When it comes to Venezuela papers like the Washington Post, the NYT, the Globe and Mail and others are no different from tabloids. How else would you interpret the NYT information that Hezbollah is in Venezuela? It is a dangerous insinuation just because the Minister of Industry of Venezuela is of Lebanese descent and his great-uncle allegedly was associated with the Ba’athist Party of Iraq. The NYT would never make such an outlandish insinuation that the neo-Fascists are in Canada because Chrystia Freeland had a distant relative associated with Nazism in the Ukraine.

If we skip over the most obvious media lies, the bulk of disinformation can be reduced to two main categories of accusations laid against Nicolas Maduro: 1) Maduro is not a legitimate president; and 2) Maduro has broken the constitutional order of Venezuela.

Is Maduro an illegitimate president? Let’s remember that Maduro obtained irrefutably almost 68% of the valid votes on May 20th, and that Juan Guaidó appointed himself as “interim president” in a street rally.

Further, an analysis of the electoral process based on the established international standards shows that all the recommended elements for a legitimate election were followed in Venezuela and confirmedby many international observers.

More importantly, five candidates participated in the elections representing different ideologies. One of them, Henri Falcon, was even threatened with sanctions by the US if he decided to participate. The most radical rightwing opposition did not participate in the elections and did so by their own free will boycotting the process.

Did Maduro break the constitutional order? Former Canadian ambassador to Venezuela Ben Rowswell (2014-2017) recently lied in an interview with CTV stating that Maduro “suspended” the constitution. That never happened as it has been widely documented.

We cannot deny the economic crisis in Venezuela caused by the “guerra económica” (economic war) waged by the US. The last conservative figure for the cost of US sanctions to Venezuela is US$130 billion. But the US government and the corporate media want you to believe that the economic crisis in Venezuela is due to the Maduro government mismanagement, totally disregarding the impact of the unilateral coercive measures.

The reality is that the government of Venezuela is responding with full commitment to the constitution, and the international commitment to its “responsibility to protect” the well being of the population by maintaining its social programs under harsh circumstances. The people are at the centre of all programs.

Perhaps the most important government program is the Local Supply and Production Committees (CLAP-Comité Local de Abastecimiento y Producción) that guarantees delivery of boxes of food and other items in order to cover the basic needs. The program covers about 6 million families.

The US is currently threatening the Venezuelan CLAP program with sanctions, alleging that it finances or is a cover up for drug trade. This is the most vile deceit at the cost of starving Venezuelans. Not even in time of war is such a callous crime allowed.

Concluding remarks

It is obvious that the US government is after the control of Venezuela’s oil resources based on its unfounded claim over its “backyard”. Canada has joined with its own claim to protect its mining sector corporations with interests in Venezuela. Neither country has any interest in the people of Venezuela, despite their rhetoric.

It is also quite obvious that the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela centers on the protection of its people and on preventing any pillage of its resources based on its legitimate claim on sovereignty, independence and self-determination, supported by the majority of people.

There lies the true nature of the US/Canada attacks against Venezuela.

However, that is the pragmatic reason. The more political and ideological reason is that the US corporate interests that govern the country will never allow any other ideology that hints or resembles any form of socialism, even in its embryonic form. Canada’s foreign policy today is quite attuned with US foreign policy.

It is interesting to note that the constitution promoted by Chavez does not have a single mention of the word “socialism”. It speaks frequently of “social democracy” but never of socialism.

Chavez coined the phrase “Socialism for the 21st Century” in 2005, six years after the new constitution was approved. And yet he was already slated for a US-sponsored coup in 2002. The coup failed but that must have made Chavez’s anti-imperialism discourse much more urgent. His speeches rejecting capitalism, imperialism and neo-liberalism, as causing oppression of the population, became much more open, explicit and forceful.

The policies of his government also became much more progressive as indicated by the law passed in 2006 establishing communal councils as units of direct democratic self-government, and the law of 2010 establishing the creation of communes as institutions that would bring together the communal councils with local productive units. These laws were in compliance with Article 184 of the constitution.

However, the new constitution being drafted by the National Constituent Assembly needs to formalize the close to 3,000 Communes in Venezuela by giving them constitutional ranking.

It would not be totally surprising to see a more prominent place for the “21stCentury Socialism” in the new constitution. Perhaps, we may witness a formal Venezuelan declaration of the “socialist character” of the Bolivarian Revolution.

Today we can infer that the corporate media war is not just against Maduro but it is against Chavismo as the living ideology of the Bolivarian Revolution.

We are currently witnessing a race between two forces in our hemisphere: 1) the US and Canada imperial forces that support the Venezuelan rightwing opposition in order to produce a regime change, and 2) Venezuela’s popular majority forces determined to build an independent socialist path.

This is not a race where we can stand at the margin and say, may the best win. This is a race in which we are all involved. We must be involved. Today’s geopolitical reality makes us all vulnerable. Sorting out reality from fiction is the essential task.

‘Russia, China, N. Korea eager to find common ground, but US push for superiority ruins everything’

‘Russia, China, N. Korea eager to find common ground, but US push for superiority ruins everything’
Donald Trump said a lot of good things on Russia, China and North Korea during the G20 summit, but there’s no guarantee he won’t announce that he’s changed his mind in a tweet next week, analysts have told RT.

“The outcomes are always good whenever President Trump meets world leaders, be it Putin, Xi Jinping or North Korean [Kim Jong-un],” political analyst Andre Vltchek commented, speaking on the outcome of the high-profile gathering in Osaka but noting that, in a week or a month, Trump could wake up and tweet something on Venezuela, North Korea that completely contradicts his earlier words.

“There was a lot of theatrics going on” at the G20, Paul Ingram, executive director of the British American Security Information Council, pointed out.

Donald Trump was saying a lot of things that were clearly designed to make the headlines. But what’s really going on underneath here is anybody’s guess.

Regardless of what path the US leader chooses next, it’s already important that Moscow and Washington are talking, especially, on such important issue as arms control, Ingram said. With the US already withdrawing from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) and considering ditching the New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty), “the likelihood is that we could easily have deployments of new nuclear-capable missiles in Europe, which is terrifying many European countries right now.”

ALSO ON RT.COMA daunting agenda… sprinkled with wisecracks: Highlights from the Trump-Putin G20 talksTrump pulling out of those landmark non-proliferation deals shows that there’s “no awareness in the US president’s head about how much effort it takes to negotiate these treaties,” he added.

After the INF withdrawal, “I don’t know how much Russia can still trust the US,” Vltchek cautioned.

Obviously, Russia has no other choice but to try its best, for the sake of its own people and for the sake of the world, to push the US to negotiate.

Vltchek believes that “the most important [thing now] is to keep Donald Trump as optimistic for at least one year, until the next ‘great’ meeting between him and Putin will happen, on May 9, 2020.” During the G20, Vladimir Putin invited his US counterpart to come to Moscow for next spring’s Victory Day celebrations, and Trump reportedly “responded very positively” to the idea.

ALSO ON RT.COM‘Great guy’ Putin had ‘good’ meeting with Trump: Russia & US leaders applaud their G20 meetingWhile in Osaka, Trump again declared his willingness to solve the US-Korea deadlock, even saying that he wanted to meet Kim at the demilitarized zone between the South and the North of the peninsula. the Korean settlement “requires more than chummy personal relations between the [Trump and Kim],” Ingram warned, noting the process needs “understanding the pathways that lead a country like north Korea to acquire nuclear weapons.”

Washington’s behavior in the Korean negotiations is the same behavior that prevents resolution of other disputes worldwide, Vltchek stressed. “All the doors are open – from Russia, from China, from North Korea… their leaders are willing to negotiate. It’s always the US which backs up and starts to push for its either economical superiority or – I hate to use the word – for its imperialist interests.”

ALSO ON RT.COM‘Time will tell’: Trump not sure he is ready to stop China trade war, despite ‘excellent’ Xi meeting“Diplomacy is much better than war or conflict… but behind the rhetoric is always national interests,” political analyst Andrew Leung pointed out. The aspirations of Washington, Moscow and Beijing are different, so “common ground [must be found], but then, of course, the Trump administration believes that America has dominating strength on many fronts and it’s prepared to use this strength to push the envelope for ‘America first.’”

“Trumping this kind of attitude that the strong dictates the policies and the weak has simply to obey doesn’t sit well with many other countries,” Leung warned.

‘Excellent results’? Trump-Putin G20 meeting sounds like Helsinki summit that saw relations sour

‘Excellent results’? Trump-Putin G20 meeting sounds like Helsinki summit that saw relations sour
President Donald Trump described his G20 meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin as “excellent.” As the media scrambled to slate Trump for cosying up to Putin, it’s worth asking, does friendly rhetoric change anything?

Putin and Trump talked for an hour and a half on Friday, in a meeting Trump described as “interesting” and “excellent.” The Kremlin echoed the sentiment, with spokesman Dmitry Peskov calling the chat “intensive,” and promising to officially invite Trump to Moscow for World War II Victory celebrations next year.

Both presidents certainly seemed comfortable in each other’s presence, with Trump jokingly wagging his finger at the Russian leader with the instruction “don’t meddle in the elections please,” and the pair toasting each other at dinner later that evening.

ALSO ON RT.COMTrump trolls press, ‘orders’ Putin not to meddle in US elections (VIDEO)Predictably, American politicians and pundits went into overdrive. “He called the Russian president by his first name!”CNN’s Chris Cuomo gasped. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) claimed that Trump was “basically giving Putin a green light to interfere in 2020,” and former US ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul called the encounter “disappointing but no longer shocking.”

Cuomo Prime Time

@CuomoPrimeTime

“Fact is stranger than fiction these days.”@ChrisCuomo responds to President Trump casually instructing his Russian counterpart, Vladmir Putin, not to meddle in the upcoming US election. https://cnn.it/2KFXLlr 

Pundits calling out collusion seemed to have forgotten the outcome of last year’s Helsinki summit. Then, like now, Trump heralded his meeting with Putin as “great,” and said that both leaders “got along very well.” Again, the media flipped with Trump for “believing Putin’s word” on election meddling, and castigated the president for “kowtowing to the Kremlin,” as the Washington Post put it.

But did things go better between the two countries?

Trump returned home and announced that he had mis-spoken, and that he did in fact trust the assessment of (some of) the US intelligence community that Russia had interfered in the 2016 election. A month later, Washington imposed a ban on arms sales, US government credit, and exports of national-security-sensitive goods to Russia.

The Trump Administration also continued its policy of pounding Russia with economic sanctions. Three months before this year’s G20 summit, Washington sanctioned Moscow over a standoff with Ukrainian vessels in the Kerch Strait near Crimea last November. Just one month ago, the US sanctioned a group of Russian individuals over alleged human rights abuses.

ALSO ON RT.COMRussiagaters’ darkest hour: Trump may come to Moscow for 2020 Victory Day celebrationsMoreover, while CNN’s Wolf Blitzer declared that the “Russians must be high-fiving each other” following the Helsinki summit, Trump followed the meeting up by discussing the possibility of building a new, permanent US military base in Poland to counter alleged ‘Russian aggression.’ With the planned base still a bone of contention between Washington, Moscow, and Warsaw, Trump also set the stage for this year’s Osaka meeting by inking a $414 million arms deal with Poland in February and announcing the deployment of 1,000 troops to the Eastern European country earlier this month. Hardly cause for cheer in the Kremlin.

Up to the present day, Trump has continued to pursue a business-as-usual policy of aggressive anti-Russia maneuvers. The US’ withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty this year only deepened the rift between Washington and Moscow, and raised fears of another Cold War-style arms race between the two superpowers.

With an agenda featuring arms control, trade and, according to Trump, “a little protectionism,” both leaders had a lot to talk about on Friday, and limited time in which to do so. As for outcomes, we will have to wait and see if actions line up with words.

Jewish Museum Berlin director steps down after a tweet misfires

Germany’s Council of Jews said Peter Schäfer “lost the trust of the Jewish community”

The director of the Jewish Museum Berlin stepped down on Friday after raising hackles among members of the Jewish community with a retweet that appeared to question the German parliament’s condemnation of groups that favour boycotts and sanctions against Israel.

Peter Schäfer, who has served as director since 2014 and whose contract was extended for a year in April, has come under intensifying fire for taking what critics say is an overly political position for his role as head of a cultural institution funded by the German government. He offered his resignation to Culture Minister Monika Grütters “to avoid further damaging the Jewish Museum Berlin,” according to a statement sent by the museum.

The museum’s official account on 6 June retweeted a report from the left-leaning Berlin newspaper, Tageszeitung, which described a letter signed by 240 Israeli and Jewish scholars who rejected a motion condemning BDS as an anti-Semitic movement adopted by the German lower house of parliament.

BDS, which stands for Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions, aims to use economic pressure on Israel to defend Palestinian interests in the Middle East. The museum used the hashtag #mustread in its retweet and added a quote from the letter: “Parliament’s decision doesn’t assist the fight against anti-Semitism”—without using quotation marks. The museum later defended its retweet, saying it was intended to provoke discussion rather than reflect a political stance.

But it was the final straw for Josef Schuster, the president of Germany’s Central Council of Jews. Last year, the Jewish Museum Berlin came under fire from the Israeli government for its exhibition Welcome to Jerusalem, which it accused of presenting a pro-Palestinian and Muslim narrative. Schäfer was also criticised for inviting Iran’s top culture official to the museum, a decision he later conceded in an interview with Spiegelmagazine was “stupid.”

“Enough is enough,” Schuster tweeted on 11 June. “The Jewish Museum Berlin seems to have spun completely out of control. Under these circumstances, we have to consider whether the term ‘Jewish’ is still appropriate. The museum leadership has lost the trust of the Jewish community.”

The museum’s executive director, Martin Michaelis, will take over from Schäfer with immediate effect. Grütters, who is the president of the foundation that oversees the museum, said she respects Schäfer’s decision and a search committee will seek a new director.

Located in a spectacular building designed by Daniel Libeskind, the Jewish Museum Berlin has become a city landmark since opening in 2001. It is structured as a foundation directly under the control of the federal government, which provides three-quarters of its funding. Future projects include a new permanent exhibition and a children’s museum modelled on Noah’s Ark to open across the road from the existing building later this year.

Director of Jewish Museum Berlin resigns

The director of the Jewish Museum Berlin, Peter Schäfer, has resigned following criticism from the Central Council of Jews. At issue were a museum exhibition and a tweet seen to be critical of Israel’s occupation policy.

Berlin’s Jewish Museum said its director, Peter Schäfer, had resigned Friday to “prevent further damage” to the city’s drawcard that attracts 700,000 visitors annually and describes itself as a “place for reflection” on Jewish history and culture, migration and diversity in Germany.

The museum was criticized for the exhibition “Welcome to Jerusalem,” which focused on daily life, religion and politics in the city. Some said the exhibit was biased in favor of the Palestinian point of view.

The museum was also denounced this week when its Twitter account linked to a news article about Israeli academics who condemned a German parliament resolution that called the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement “anti-Semitic.”

German lawmakers said BDS uses anti-Semitic methods to promote its political goals — a claim firmly rejected by the movement, which calls for a boycott of Israel over its policies towards Palestinians and an end to the occupation of the West Bank, Golan Heights and East Jerusalem.

Schäfer, a well-known Jewish studies scholar and the museum’s director since 2014, told Berlin daily Tagesspiegel on Tuesday that he regretted the tweet, adding that the museum had never had the task of taking sides in current political debates. In a second tweet,  the museum said it did not intend to take a position against the parliamentary resolution but to point out the input from the academics.

Netanyahu demanded exhibition closure

Schäfer defended the museum’s “Welcome to Jerusalem” exhibition, say it took neither an anti-Israeli nor pro-Palestinian line.

Last December, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wrote to German Chancellor Angela Merkel demanding the closure of the exhibition. At the time, the daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung quoted Schäfer as describing Jerusalem as a “place of longing for Jews, Christians and Muslims.”

Netanyahu’s assertion that the exhibition, which ran until April, amounted to a one-sided “Palestinian-Muslim view” was rejected as political interference by Schäfer and Monika Grütters, the German government’s commissioner for culture and the media.

On Friday, Schäfer again defended the special exhibition, saying it had not produced anti-Israeli nor pro-Palestinian propaganda.

Departure ‘respected,’ says Grütters

Grütters, who chairs the board of the museum’s foundation, on Friday said she respected Schäfer’s decision to step down.

“All those responsible must help ensure that the Jewish Museum Berlin can again concentrate on its important work in terms of content,” said Grütters.

Central Council of Jews in Germany chairman Josef Schuster, who earlier this week said the museum seemed “totally out of control” and questioned whether it could still call itself “Jewish,” said Schäfer’s resignation as director of the museum was “an important step in averting further damage to the institution.”

Schuster told Saturday’s edition of Berlin’s Tageszeitung newspaper that Judaism should in the future have “more influence” and that he would welcome a Jewish director for the federally funded museum.

In April, the museum’s board extended Schäfer’s contract for a further year, with Schäfer saying he was working on the opening in May 2020 of a new permanent exhibition and a museum branch for children.

In its statement Friday, the museum said its manager Martin Michaelis would head the facility until a successor was found.

Funded by federal budget

The Jewish Museum in Berlin opened in 2001 as a combination of old and new structures designed by architect Daniel Libeskind.

It was funded with €15 million annually from Grütter’s budget, the foundation stated at the time.

Since its opening in 2001, its initial exhibition of nearly two millennia of German-Jewish history has drawn 1.4 million visitors.

  • The Reformation aimed to reform the church by the power of the gospel. This rarely gave rise to a new way of regarding the Jews. The Reformers operated within a tradition of anti-Judaic thought patterns, the roots of which reached back to the early church.
  • It is our responsibility to clarify how we deal with the anti-Judaic statements made during the Reformation period and the history of their impact and reception. We ask to what extent they fostered a generally anti-Judaic attitude in Protestant churches and how this can be overcome today. Engaging with Martin Luther’s attitude towards the Jews takes on exemplary significance in this process.
  • Luther linked central insights of his theology with anti-Judaic thought patterns. His recommendations for dealing with Jews in practice were contradictory. First he argued for a friendly, persuasive approach to Jews, and then resorted to invective, demanding that they be deprived of their rights and expelled.
  • In the lead-up to the Reformation anniversary we cannot bypass this history of guilt. The fact that Luther’s anti-Judaic recommendations in later life were a source for Nazi anti-Semitism is a further burden weighing on the Protestant churches in Germany.

A distressing legacy

  • Luther’s early statements and his late writings from 1538, with their undisguised hatred of Jews, show continuity in his theological judgment. He regarded the Judaism of his time as a religion that had missed its own calling. It was guided by the meritoriousness of works and refused to read the Old Testament as leading up to Jesus Christ. According to Luther, the suffering experienced by the Jews was an expression of God’s punishment for their denial of Jesus Christ.
  • Luther’s judgment was bound up with the western tradition of hostility towards the Jews. At first he rejected widespread slanderous tales such as the charges of desecrating the Eucharistic host and of ritual murder, stating that they were lies and fabrications. Later he returned to obsolete stereotypes and remained blinded by irrational fears and resentments.
  • Luther believed that Christians could only live alongside Jews on a temporary basis, and in the hope of converting them. In 1523, in a clear critique of the customary Jew-baiting, he expressed the hope that “if one deals in a kindly way with the Jews and instructs them carefully from Holy Scripture, many of them will become genuine Christians.” [1] (That Jesus Christ was Born a Jew). In 1543 he composed On the Jews and Their Lies. For fear that tolerating the Jewish religion could bring down the wrath of God upon the Christian community as well, he ended this treatise by recommending that the temporal authorities e.g. burn synagogues, destroy Jewish houses, confiscate their Talmuds and prayer books, prohibit them from trading and draft them into forced labor. If that did not help, he advised driving out the Jews “like mad dogs”. [2]
  • For centuries, people had recourse to Luther’s advice. On the one hand, with reference to his attitude of qualified friendliness in 1523, they argued for tolerating Jews but also for a more intensive mission to the Jews. On the other, they appealed to Luther’s late writings in order to justify hatred and persecution of Jews, in particular with the emergence of racist anti-Semitism and at the time of National Socialism. It is not possible to draw simple continuous lines. Nevertheless, in the 19th and 20th century, Luther was a source for theological and ecclesial anti-Judaism, as well as for political anti-Semitism.

Renewing relationships

  • After 1945, the churches embarked upon a learning curve about their culpable failure regarding Judaism – hesitantly at first, and this process is not yet complete. The Evangelical Church in Germany redefined its relationship with Judaism in theological terms, rejecting any form of hostility to Jews and calling for encounter with Judaism. Statements to this effect were included in the constitutions of many EKD member churches.
  • According to our present understanding, Luther’s view of Judaism and his invective against Jews contradict his faith in the one God who revealed himself in Jesus the Jew. Luther’s judgment upon Israel therefore does not correspond to the biblical statements on God’s covenant faithfulness to his people and the lasting election of Israel.
  • In theology and church life we face the challenge of rethinking central theological doctrines of the Reformation and of not falling into disparaging anti-Judaic stereotypes. This particularly concerns the distinctions ‘law and gospel’, ‘promise and fulfillment’, ‘faith and works’ and ‘old and new covenant’.
  • We acknowledge the need to deal critically with our Reformation heritage when interpreting Scripture, in particular the Old Testament. We recognize that “the Jewish exegesis of the Holy Scriptures of Israel [Tanakh] contains a perspective which is also not only legitimate but even necessary for the Christian interpretation” (Church and Israel, Leuenberg Documents 6, II, 227). We can explore the richness of Scripture more profoundly when we are aware of Jewish biblical interpretation.
  • We recognize the part played by the Reformation tradition in the painful history of ‘mismeeting’ (from Martin Buber’s ‘Vergegnung’) between Christians and Jews. The far-reaching failure of Protestant churches in Germany with regard to the Jewish people fills us with sorrow and shame. The horror at such historical and theological aberrations and the awareness of our share of guilt in the continued suffering of Jews give rise to a special responsibility to resist and oppose all forms of enmity and inhumanity towards Jews today.
  • “When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said, ‘Repent,’ he willed the entire life of believers to be one of repentance” (Martin Luther). The Reformation anniversary in 2017 is an opportunity to take further steps of repentance and renewal.

Martin Luther

Quotes from Martin Luther
‘On Jews and their Lies’ – Index

The theology of Martin Luther has had a profound influence over modern day Protestant Christianity, in particular Luther’s interpretation of ‘Salvation by faith’ which remains the driving ideological justification for the type of Christian evangelism we are so familiar with today. Luther’s ‘faith’ however has a dark side, intolerance and the damnation of dissent and difference and this aspect of both his character and his theology are clearly revealed in one of Luther’s less celebrated works ‘On the Jews and their lies’, justifiably believed to have contributed much to the Nazi Holocaust during the Second World War. Luther’s ‘salvation by faith’ included a doctrine of ‘damnation for not believing’ and in his case this even included damnation for ‘having faith’ in doctrines which differed from those doctrines in which Luther had faith. While much emphasis is placed on Luther’s doctrine of ‘no salvation by works’ in truth, an examination reveals that Luther’s doctrine of ‘faith’ was in greater part ‘salvation by faith in doctrines’ and this leads directly to the modern saying by certain Christian sects that ‘I am not without sin, just forgiven’ (in otherwords ‘works’ and ‘deeds’ are not the criteria used to determination ‘salvation’ in this expression of the Protestant faith, but rather a person is ‘saved’ by ‘believing doctrine’ and it is this belief in correct doctrine that is emphasized by Luther and thus defines what is meant by ‘faith’. For example you will hear evangelists teaching that you will be saved ‘based on how you answer this question – Who was Jesus’ and in the end one is saved by believing certain doctrines (thus having ‘faith’) and one can also ‘claim to be a Christian’ but nevertheless ‘go to hell’ for believing ‘incorrect doctrines’). The totalitarian nature of Luther’s doctrine of ‘faith’ and its stubborn insistence on correct ‘doctrine’ (‘faith’) is clearly illustrated in Luther’s anti-semetic attack on the Jews. The better part of the first half of his essay concentrates on the correct doctrinal interpretation of scriptural passages, interpersed with attacks on the Jewish people for deviating from these orthodox interpretations. In the mid section of his essay Luther gives his advice on how to treat Jews, all of which was put into literal practice by the Nazis during the Holocaust, and in the final section of his essay Luther concentrates on railing at the Jews for not being Christians and for deviating from ‘faith’ in Christian doctrine (the true means to salvation ‘by faith’ in the Protestant system Luther developed – salvation by faith in correct beliefs, which explains the Protestant intolerance for deviation in doctrine and the emphasis on ‘believing doctrines’ which is the defining characteristic of so much protestant religion to this very day).

for incorrect interpretation of scripture 

Luther’s Advice for dealing with the Jews

Luther’s Christianity and his judgment
and condemnation of the Jews

One the Jews and their Lies
The Complete Text

1. Introduction

2. Jewish ancestors
Luther attempts to keep the authority of the Bible, while at the same time denying the Jews any connection to the stories of their ancestors, such as Abraham. In general, Luther will rely on Paul’s argument from Romans that ‘not all Jews are really the children of Abraham’.

3. Circumcision
Luther attacks the Jews for boasting about circumcision as ‘the sign of their covenant with God.’ Once again Luther will be recycling Paul’s argument from Romans as well as other similar letters…

4. Moses
Luther attacks Jews based on certain passages where Moses also criticizes Jews in an attempt to carry on the argument that ‘today’s Jews are not real Jews but rather devils.’

5. Canaan
Luther attempts to nullify claims Jews were making to the promises of God as illustrated in the Canaan stories.

6. Prophecy
Luther quarrels with Jews over traditional Christian interpretations of prophecy.

7. Jacob and David
Once again Luther attempts to make the case that promises made to Jacob or David have nothing to with the Jews of his time.

8. Jeremiah
Jeremiah was a Christian, and not Jewish, according to Luther.

9. Eternally
Once again Luther is recycling the argument from Romans, in this case insisting that Jews have no right to insist that the passages regarding an ‘eternal covenant’ have anything to do with the Jews of his time.

10. Goyim
Luther accuses the Jews of being bigots.

11. Haggai and the temple
Luther once again quarrels with the Jews over the traditional Christian interpretation of prophecy.

12. Daniel
Luther quarrels with the Jews over the interpretation of the book of Daniel, using arguments that remain standard fare to this day.

13. Poor Jesus
Luther accuses the Jews of persecuting Jesus and his ‘poor Mother’ for no reason.

14. Jews persecuting Christians
Luther insists that Christians must endure wide spread persecution, bigotry and oppression at the hands of the Jews. These sorts of arguments will be recycled centuries later by Hitler.

15. Luthers final solution ot the Jewish problem
Point by point Luther gives advice to the political leaders and the pulpit on how to go about persecuting Jews. His advice will be taken literally by Hitler and the Nazi party resulting in the Holocaust.

16. New Testament
Luther reveals the true nature of his doctrine of ‘justification by faith.’ Faith means belief in orthodox doctrines, as Luther reveals when he attacks the Jews for not believing in the Church Testament, which is continuation of his earlier attacks on the Jews for not interpreting the Jewish Testament according to Orthodox Christian belief.

17. The final solution reprised.
Luther repeats his demands for persecution of the Jews by the political powers and from the pulpit, on the pains of eternal damnation for sharing in their unbelief by tolerating their differences in faith (the flip side, the dark side, of Luthers doctrine of ‘justification by faith’ which in practice means justification by belief in certain doctrines).

18. Jewish Messiah is a sow
Using a deliberately insulting analogy to ‘pork’ (an ‘unclean food’) Luther insists that belief in the Jewish Messiah makes one a sow, in otherwords an ‘unclean pig’.

19. Miracles and conclusion
Luther goes on about the miracles constantly being done by the church, and then concludes his diatribe.


Anti-Semitic ‘Jewish Sow’ relief may be removed from Luther’s church

Medieval sculpture on façade of Unesco World Heritage site in Wittenberg is one of around 30 similar pieces across Europe

The so-called Judensau relief on the façade of the Wittenberg church where Martin Luther preached

The so-called Judensau relief on the façade of the Wittenberg church where Martin Luther preached

Church leaders and art historians are debating whether to remove an obscene 13th-century anti-Jewish relief from the façade of the heritage-protected church where Martin Luther once preached in the German city of Wittenberg.

The sandstone relief depicts Jewish people drinking from a sow’s teats while a rabbi lifts her tail to inspect her hindquarters. In response to a court complaint filed by a member of the German Jewish community and an online petition, the Evangelical Church is now discussing its removal and alternative display options.

“The proposal to take down the medieval sculpture and integrate it into a new monument seems convincing to me,” Irmgard Schwaetzer, the president of the synod of the Evangelical Church in Germany, said in a statement sent by email. “It expresses pure hatred of Jews. A centre of education that finds acceptance beyond the parish should be established here. This also means considering the feelings that this place awakens in our Jewish brothers and sisters.”

Around 30 “Judensau” (Jewish Sow) images still exist in medieval churches around Europe, primarily in Germany. The oldest surviving example, dating from 1230, is in Brandenburg. Their intention was to dehumanise Jewish people, provoking scorn and ridicule by associating them with a beast considered impure and dirty.

Until now, the church has shown no willingness to consider the removal of the Wittenberg relief, says Richard Harvey, a British theologian specialised in Jewish-Christian relations and the author of an online petition which has garnered 10,000 signatures advocating its relocation. Heritage experts have also argued against taking it down.

“We can’t allow this to lead to a kind of iconoclasm,” the art historian Insa-Christiane Hennen said in an interview with Deutschlandfunk radio station. “The problem of modern-day anti-Semitism cannot be solved by removing these medieval objects.”

A legal complaint demanding the removal of the Wittenberg relief filed by Michael Düllmann was rejected by a regional court on 24 May. Düllmann had argued that the church was abusing and insulting him and other Jews. The court ruled that the fact that the church had not removed the relief could not be considered abuse.

“We have lost the first round,” says Hubertus Benecke, the lawyer representing him. “My client plans to appeal. We will also be watching to see how the discussions develop.”

Harvey says the Wittenberg relief is “the most egregious example” of a “Judensau” because it is located on the façade of the church in full public view. It is also in the church where Luther preached and married—a Unesco World Heritage site. A post-Reformation script on the image echoes an anti-Jewish text by Luther, implying that the Rabbi inspecting the sow’s behind is trying to read the Talmud. The parish added a plaque and an explanation in 1988, when Wittenberg was still behind the Iron Curtain.

“I have tremendous respect for what they were trying to do,” Harvey says. “But these days, more needs to be done. The sculpture continues to cause offence and defame Jewish people and their faith. I want it to be relocated to a museum or study centre so it’s removed from sacred space and from public social space.”

If Assad Is “Killing His Own People” Why Are They Rushing Back To Him?

By Brandon Turbeville

As the mainstream corporate press attempts to guilt Westerners over making Syrian refugees return home, Western outlets are, in fact, deconstructing their own propaganda narrative for all to see.

For instance, according to the International Organization for Migration, more than 600,000 Syrians have returned home to Syria since the beginning of 2017, more than the number of returning refugees in the entire year of 2016.

IOM reports that the majority of those Syrians going home were internally displaced people. After that, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq followed respectively.

The typically pro-imperialist NPR attempted to suggest that the return of the internally displaced to their homes are being forced to relocate back home by the Syrian government. That claim, while largely nonsensical, is also contradicted by reports from other mainstream agencies.

IOM is worried that the “appropriate measures” to ensure safety to those Syrians returning home are not yet in place.

Of course, the real question that needs to be asked here is simple: “If Assad is killing his own people, why are Syrians running back to him in droves?” After all, when African refugees were being labeled Syrian two years ago, we were told that these people were fleeing the “brutal Assad,” the dictator “killing his own people.” So why would people who were being slaughtered by their own government rush back to it at the earliest possible opportunity?

Perhaps because they actually prefer to live in Syria than some other country. Perhaps their government isn’t killing them like Americans are being told they are.

It is also important to point out that the rate of return for Syrian refugees has increased directly with the amount of territory liberated by the Syrian government. In other words, as the Syrian government liberates more territory, more Syrians return to their homes in government-controlled territory. Obviously, if Syrian refugees were fleeing Assad, we would be seeing an increase in refugees.

Regardless, it is clear to all who are not being paid to see otherwise that Syrians are returning home because America’s terrorists are losing territory and, thus, they now have the ability to return to their homes under government control.

While alternative media researchers have been pointing this out since the beginning of the conflict, mainstream media now has no choice but to admit that Syrians are willingly returning to the country run by the man these same outlets have attempted to demonize and destroy for six years.

Slowly but surely, the mainstream media’s narrative surrounding Syria is unraveling in front of everyone’s eyes.

Democratic candidates on Israel/Palestine – a guide (updated regularly)

It’s anybody’s guess how this will play out, but it’s going to be a long, wild ride.

Overwhelmed by the crowd of candidates for President? The issue of justice for Palestinians – in which almost everyone bows to the Israel lobby – is the ultimate litmus test for integrity. Find out where everyone stands. (This guide will be updated often.)

Keep in mind that since Palestinians in Gaza began weekly unarmed demonstrationsfor their internationally recognized rights on March 30, 2018 through March 22, 2019, Israeli forces killed over 271 demonstrators and injured 29,187 Gazans (6,000 of them children). During that time 2 Israelis were killed and 56 injured. A Timeline of Palestinian and Israeli deaths is here

By Kathryn Shihadah

Democratic Candidates 1-24

1. MICHAEL BENNET (D)

(New York Times interview questionDo you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19) Yes. I’ve said this before and I believe it: Israel is the one essential country on the planet. I say that because of my family’s history during the Holocaust, and that doesn’t mean Israel’s perfect. Where we have disagreements, we should be able to articulate those disagreements, and I do articulate the disagreements I’ve had with Benjamin Netanyahu over the years.

(Twitter 5/6/19) “We stand behind Israel’s right to self-defense against rocket attacks by terror groups inside Gaza,” he said on Twitter. “Launching rocket attacks against innocent civilians is unacceptable and we mourn the lives lost. A cessation in violence is a necessary step toward de-escalation and stability.”

2. JOE BIDEN(D)

(Remarks at Saban Forum, 12/7/14)“Send a message to Bibi. I love him.” Even if he drives me crazy, Biden said. The love message came in 2014 a few months after the Gaza slaughter, in which Israel killed 500 children.

(Remarks at Yeshiva Beth Yehuda 75th Anniversary Dinner 11/15/11) About 18, 20 years ago, I was speaking to the Zionist Organization of Baltimore.  And I said, I am a Zionist, for I learned you do not have to be a Jew to be a Zionist…[I]t was no surprise to my friends when I was elected to the Senate in a state less than 1 percent of the Jewish — less than 1 percent of the population is Jewish, that I got so deeply involved early on in the Senate with the business of Israel.

(Remarks at AIPAC Policy Conference 3/4/13) We opposed the unilateral efforts of the Palestinian Authority to circumvent direct negotiations by pushing for statehood and multilateral organizations like UNESCO. We stood strongly with Israel in its right to defend itself after the Goldstone ReportGaza flotillain 2010, [I spent a lot of time] going to the United Nations directly by telephone, speaking with the Secretary General, making sure that one thing was made clear, Israel had the right — had the right — to impose that blockade.

3. BILL DE BLASIO (D)

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19) I believe in the state of Israel…the one true democracy in the Middle East, and they do respect the rights of all people. There’s always more work to be done…it begins with a strong commitment to Israel…I’ve been to Israel 4 times, I’ve spent a lot of time seeing the threats that Israel faces. I firmly believe that we have to defend the state of Israel, and we have to fight against the movements that would undercut Israel, like BDS…The current administration has made a lot of mistakes that have hindered the peace process…

(Remarks at Hampton Synagogue in Westhampton Beach, 8/20/16) I think [BDS – Boycott, Divest, and Sanction is] one of the most ahistorical things I’ve ever seen…Defending Israel is a matter — from my point of view as a progressive — is a matter of being consistent with progressive values.

(Remarks at AIPAC Policy Conference, 3/25/19) As a progressive, here’s what I see when I’m in Israel. I see a multi-racial democracy. I see universal healthcare, free college, a strong labor movement. You’ve often heard it said that Israel’s America’s closest ally in the Middle East and a great center of innovation, and although that is true, I’m moved by something more than that. Israel at its core is there to shelter an oppressed people. That is why I am here to make a simple, clear, progressive case for the state of Israel. So here’s a straightforward definition for you. Progressives fight oppression. Progressives shelter those in danger. We embrace inclusion. We fight against exclusion.

4. CORY BOOKER (D)

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19) We have a problem right now in America with the way we are debating issues surrounding Israel and Israel’s security…My commitment right now is affirming Israel’s right to exist and affirming Israel’s right to defend itself against enemies which they have virtually surrounding them, but also to affirm the dignity and self-determination of the Palestinian people.

(Senate floor speech 11/29/18) Mr. President, today I wish to add myself as a cosponsor of S. 720, the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, and urge my colleagues to support this important legislation in its modified form. I have long and staunchly opposed the BDS movement and associated efforts to unfairly isolate Israel in international forums.

[Secretly recorded meeting with New Jersey AIPAC members 3/26/19) Israel is not political to me. It’s not political. I was a supporter of Israel well before I was a United State Senator. I was coming to AIPAC conferences well before I knew that one day I would be a federal officer. If I forget thee, o Israel, may I cut off my right hand. [Applause]

[Booker assured a questioner he’s always been for more money to Israel:] Unequivocally 100 percent absolutely [yes] to the 3.3 billion [a year]. I have been on the front lines every time an MOU is up to make sure Israel gets the funding it needs. I even pushed for more funding.

5. STEVE BULLOCK (D)

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19) I think that Israel’s a trusted partner, a trusted friend to our country, and will continue to. I think that there have been certainly in the territories there have been challenges with decisions that currently Netanyahu has made…we could get things back on track, work with our allies, and get to a 2-state solution.

(Signatory of Governors Against BDS, an initiative of the American Jewish Committee, 12/17/17, which reads in part:) We, the undersigned Governors, reject efforts to demonize and delegitimize Israel—America’s democratic ally in the Middle East— through the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. The goals of the BDS movement are antithetical to our values and the values of our respective states…They malign a trusted ally that, while forced to defend itself against repeated and ongoing attempts to annihilate it, has consistently extended its hand in peace to its Palestinian neighbors and to states across the Middle East and around the world. Significantly, the BDS movement would also undermine peacemaking by suggesting that economic and political pressure on Israel can replace real negotiation…

6. PETE BUTTIGIEG (D)

(Comment on American Jewish Committee podcast after returning from an AJC Mayors’ trip to Israel – recorded 4 days after 60 mostly unarmed Palestinians were killed by Israeli sharpshooters, 5/18/18) “Seeing the way that a country can be on the one hand very intentional, very serious, and very effective when it comes to security and on the other hand not allowing concerns about security to dominate your consciousness,” he said, “I think that’s a very important lesson that hopefully Americans can look to when we think about how to navigate a world that unfortunately has become smaller and more dangerous for all of us.”

(Remark in speech at Indiana University, 6/11/19) “If Prime Minister Netanyahu makes good on his threat to annex West Bank settlements, he should know that a President Buttigieg would take steps to ensure that American taxpayers won’t help foot the bill,”

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19) Israel’s human rights record is problematic and moving in the wrong direction under the current rightwing government…I’m very worried, especially with some of the latest talk about annexation of the West Bank, that their government is moving away from peace…

7. JULIÁN CASTRO (D)

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19)  I believe that Israel, like a lot of countries, wants to do the right thing, that they can get better. I do believe that we need to recognize and respect the human rights of Palestinians…Israel has to choose: it’s going to be a Jewish state or a democratic state…I recognize that [a 2-state solution] has been made harder over the years through the increase in settlements…

(Remark at Castro’s Conversations About America’s Future, Austin TX, 3/10/19) Support Israel, remain strong allies, but recognize the value of Palestinians and that they should be treated in a way that we can support on behalf of the country.

(Tweet 4/8/19) In abandoning our position as a good faith partner in the Middle East peace process, the Trump admin has enabled reckless actions like [West Bank annexation] from Netanyahu. US support for a two-state solution is on the line in November 2020.

8. JOHN DELANEY (D)

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19)  I think Israel does meet international standards of human rights. I think Israel’s in a very difficult situation, when they’re surrounded by countries who are effectively threatening their existence, and don’t believe they have a right to exist. So I think that puts them in an exceedingly difficult situation in many respects. It’s always in the best interest of Israel to make sure their response to people who are threatening them is as measured and appropriate as possible.

(Remark before a trip to Israel as a candidate for Congress, 7/27/12. The visit included holy sites, Israeli officials and business leaders)  After speaking with community leaders, faith leaders, and voters, across the District during my campaign, I came to understand that visiting Israel was necessary to obtain a full and proper perspective on our relationship with our strongest ally in the Middle East. I felt that it was vital to gain a first-hand understanding of the issues. Israel is a force for greater democracy and stability in the Middle East, and we must support its right to exist in peace and security…As a member of Congress, I will work to ensure that the US-Israel partnership remains strong” said Delaney.

9. TULSI GABBARD (D)

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19) I think that there are some challenges with Israel that need to be addressed. I think that ongoing issues that we continue to see in the conflict between Israel and Palestine are complicated, but there needs to be progress made, ultimately to make sure that both the Israeli people and the Palestinian people are able to live in peace and security.

(Tweet following Gaza protest on 5/14/19, in which 60 mostly unarmed Palestinians were killed by Israeli sharpshooters) Israel needs to stop using live ammunition in its response to unarmed protesters in Gaza. It has resulted in over 50 dead and thousands seriously wounded.

(Statement after declining to condemn UN Security Council resolution critical of Israeli settlements, 1/3/17) I know how important our enduring alliance with Israel is,” she wrote. “My vote upholds my commitment to maintaining and strengthening this alliance, as well as my long-held position that the most viable path to peace between Israel and Palestine can be found through both sides negotiating a two-state solution. While I remain concerned about aspects of the UN resolution, I share the Obama administration’s reservation about the harmful impact Israeli settlement activity has on the prospects for peace.”

10. KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND (D)

(Statement released after more than 200 rockets were fired into Israel from the Gaza Strip, which were in retaliation for Israel’s breaking a ceasefire and killing 14 Palestinians in one night, 11/12/18)The escalation in violence on the Israel-Gaza border is deeply disturbing, and I am relieved that Israel’s missile defense programs were able to avert civilian fatalities from this disgraceful terror attack. I urge calm so the situation does not further escalate, and I still remain hopeful for a long-term, peaceful solution to this tragic conflict. But the only way we will accomplish that is through negotiations that create conditions for safety and economic security — not through rocket attacks or any other acts of terrorism.

(Statement, 1/11/16Last week, I led a trip with seven of my Senate colleagues to meet with top government officials and military leaders about security concerns in Israel and our other partners in the Middle East. We heard from Israel’s leaders about the constant threat of terrorism they face, and we reaffirmed to them our commitment to supporting and protecting our closest ally and the only democracy in the Middle East.

mike gravel11. MIKE GRAVEL (D)

(In a piece for Mondoweiss, 6/19/19[T]he two-state solution is dead, and we have killed it. The signs of its expiration are all around us. More than half a million Israeli settlers live (illegally) in Palestinian territory, and it would be politically, and logistically, impossible for them to be removed peacefully. The increasingly entrenched Israeli hard right—led by toxic figures like Ayelet Shaked and Naftali Bennett—openly advocates annexing “Area C,” which constitutes most of the West Bank…It is also apparent that a two-state solution would likely not be worth the bloodshed and chaos it would cause. So why keep up the charade?

The most obvious and humane path forward is the creation of a secular, democratic, binational state with equal rights for all. That is the model the U.S. government, with its partners in the region, should work toward and publicly highlight as the ideal outcome. This, like any real solution, would disappoint many, both those who want an official Palestinian national homeland and those who want an official Jewish homeland. But this is necessary.

Of course, the sheer power of the Israel lobby in the United States is the main hurdle to such a radical departure from traditional blind support for Israel. Thus the Israel lobby should be restricted; it is time to free American policy from the shackles of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee), ZOA (Zionist Organization of America), and other groups…The first step should be mandating that AIPAC register as a foreign lobby under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

Next, the U.S. should end military aid to Israel, citing the Israeli military’s complicity in crimes against the Palestinian people. It should call for a gradual demilitarization of Israel and Palestine, and should be clear with the Israeli government that the days of Israel-right-or-wrong are over.

And the U.S. should refuse to take unconstitutional steps to stifle BDS.

It’s time for a mature relationship with Israel, free of the cloying sentimentalities and tired banalities (“Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East”) that infest our political discourse surrounding it. America’s wanton indulgence of the whims of Benjamin Netanyahu and his fellow rightists will only redound to the harm of Israelis and Palestinians years down the line.

12. KAMALA HARRIS (D)

(Statement 1/1/16)The people of the Middle East need a durable peace, and one that protects Israel’s security and interests. In the U.S. Senate, Kamala will be a staunch supporter of Israel.

(1/11/19So having grown up in the Bay Area, I fondly remember those Jewish national fund boxes that we would use to collect donations to plant trees for Israel,” she said at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in 2017. “Years later when I visited Israel for the first time, I saw the fruits of that effort and the Israeli ingenuity that has truly made a desert bloom.”

(New York Times interview questionDo you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19)  Overall, yes. I think Israel as a country is dedicated to being a democracy and is one of our closest friends in that region, and that we should understand the shared values and priorities that we have as a democracy, and conduct foreign policy in a way that is consistent with understanding the alignment between the American people and the people of Israel.

13. JOHN HICKENLOOPER (D)

(Comment after flareup in border violence, 5/7/19The random rocket fire by Hamas into Israel must stop. My heart goes out to the families of the Israelis killed, and those wounded in these grievous attacks. I call on all parties to show restraint and de-escalate this situation immediately.

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19)  Again, there are instances when you can find in almost every country places where there is disagreement for how they treat people or how they resolve internal conflicts. I continue to look at Israel as one of our strongest allies, they have been partners with the United States for a long time. Our challenge is to build on that foundation and help them be able to move towards that two-state solution that, which again, I think almost every Israeli believes is the ultimate goal.

(Interview with Jewish Insider, 6/25/19) We don’t always approve of the decisions of [the] Israeli government but most of us recognize Israel is ally of long standing, one of our strongest allies and even when someone criticizes certain activities of [the] Israeli government, it doesn’t mean we are in anyway diminishing our presence and long term support of the country.

14. JAY INSLEE (D)

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19) I’m a longtime supporter of a democratic Israel, and I believe we have to have a two-state solution. And I would work with all parties to make sure we have that we have that; of justice for people in Palestine and democracy in Israel. And that depends on a two-state solution and I would work with everyone to achieve that. I think that all countries can improve in all respects. Certainly our ability to foster a future for the Palestinian people needs all of us to up our game. I do not believe that the present government of Israel has followed policies, and those policies can improve to encourage the ability and maintain the access of the future to a two-state solution, and we all need to be dedicated to that.

(Signatory of Governors Against BDS, an initiative of the American Jewish Committee, 12/17/17, which reads in part:) We, the undersigned Governors, reject efforts to demonize and delegitimize Israel—America’s democratic ally in the Middle East— through the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. The goals of the BDS movement are antithetical to our values and the values of our respective states…They malign a trusted ally that, while forced to defend itself against repeated and ongoing attempts to annihilate it, has consistently extended its hand in peace to its Palestinian neighbors and to states across the Middle East and around the world. Significantly, the BDS movement would also undermine peacemaking by suggesting that economic and political pressure on Israel can replace real negotiation…

15. AMY KLOBUCHAR (D)

In February, The Times of Israel called Klobuchar “the candidate most closely aligned with AIPAC.”

New York Times interview questionDo you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19) Yes [Israel meets human rights standards]. I think Israel, however, under Prime Minister Netanyahu has been doing things that are not helpful to bringing peace to the Middle East. The way that he came out in favor of annexing the Golan Heights, what he has done when it comes to the settlements, the fact that we are not engaging in serious discussions for a two-state solution, our country and the Palestinians and the Israelis, I think that this is setting us back. And so what I would do is to reach out to restart those negotiations again. I think that President Trump has politicized this issue and has not helped in terms of American support for Israel. Israel is our beacon of democracy in the Mideast, and we have a role to play here that is very important and it shouldn’t be politicized the way the Trump administration has politicized it. And when Israel does things that I think are against public policy and international policy, I will call them out on it and I will work with them.

(Tweet following the announcement of Netanyahu’s rightwing coalition, which included radical racists, 2/27/19)This is wrong and has been rightly condemned. To quote the American Jewish Committee, ‘[The views of Otzma Yehudit] do not reflect the core values that are the very foundation of the State of Israel.

16. WAYNE MESSAM (D)

(After returning from an independent trip to the Middle East, 4/8/19) I just recently returned from an independent fact-finding mission to Jerusalem, Ramallah, Hebron, and Tel-Aviv, meeting with top leaders from both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I met with the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Deputy Speaker of the Knesset, a mayor of one of the largest settlements, and the executive director of B’Tselem – a leading human rights organization. I also met with the top negotiator on the Palestinian side who negotiated the Oslo Accords and the first woman elected to the Palestinian National Council…Over and over again, Israeli and Palestinian leaders made clear to me their desire to negotiate directly for peace. And it’s not just high-profile figures like the Deputy Speaker of the Knesset or the top negotiator for the PLO. It’s also the everyday Israeli and Palestinians – the people I met in Ramallah, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv – who quietly shared their hopes for a two-state resolution and fears of what would happen if the region were to disintegrate into an all-out religious war.

There was the Israeli cab driver, so overcome with emotion that he had to pull over, swearing his love for his Palestinian neighbors and describing how their families care for each other. Then there was the Palestinian shopkeeper, who despite living under harsh conditions in the occupied territories, displayed both compassion and understanding towards Israelis. Regular people are suffering and deserve American leadership, not misguided ideology and partisan talking points. The actions of the United States in resolving this conflict should not just reflect the interests of a small minority of right-wing, ideological voices.

We are not truly secure when our long-time friend and dear ally, Israel, feels threatened to the point of occupying and securing land as a permanent solution, instead of peace. We are not secure when the Palestinians – have been fully disenfranchised, undermining effective diplomacy, yet this is what happens when a real estate developer leads an insular negotiations process that prioritizes right-wing voices over all others…We are not secure when 53 percent of Palestinians live in poverty, including over 400,000 children.

17. SETH MOULTON (D)

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19)  Israel often does but not always [meet international standards of human rights]. And it’s incumbent on us as an ally to hold them accountable. And I have done that in Congress. I have signed legislation that is sometimes controversial, to say that we will not supply Israel with weapons and goods if they do not uphold standards for the treatment of Palestinian kids in prison for example. Now it’s not that hard for them to do this, and Israel is our most important ally in the Middle East. Now they’re a democracy that we have sworn to protect and we should. But we also have to hold our friends and allies to the same standards that we should uphold ourselves.

(Remark on HR4391, No Way To Treat A Child, 5/27/19) For decades, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has endured despite efforts by leaders within the region and throughout the world to find peace…Despite the challenges, I still believe peace is achievable if parties recommit to negotiations towards a two-state solution that allows both nations to safely live side-by-side.

H.R. 4391 would express a Sense of Congress that any abusive or unnecessarily harsh conditions or treatment of Palestinian children during their detention by the Israeli military is a violation of international law and counter to U.S. and international human rights standards.

H.R. 4391 also prohibits the use of U.S. funds to support any abusive or inhumane detention of children…A 2013 UNICEF report showed that Israeli forces arrest, interrogate, and detain approximately 700 Palestinian children a year. While experiences vary, the Israeli military has been documented subjecting children to harsh and sometimes abusive interrogation methods, without an attorney present, that often include forced confessions signed in Hebrew. America should not support these undemocratic practices. That is why I support H.R. 4391, and I believe it will contribute towards a peaceful resolution to this complex conflict and a lasting two-state solution.

18. BETO O’ROURKE (D)

(Explaining why he voted against a House resolution to refute U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334, condemning illegal Israeli settlements, 1/5/17) We should be aware of the fact that the U.N. is dangerously preoccupied with Israel…That is of great concern to me—as are other manifestations of this bias, including the Boycott Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement. There is not enough pressure applied to the Palestinian Authority and those who have leverage with its leadership to refrain from acts of terror, incitement to terror, and the cultural context (including in textbooks) that provides part of the moral underpinning for terror to thrive.

However, the settlement problem is putting at risk the very viability of the two-state solution. And I think that it is in our interest and in Israel’s interest for those settlements to cease if there is to be any hope for lasting peace; and that if settlement construction does not stop, a two-state solution will be unobtainable and Israel will lose the ability to be both a democratic and Jewish state.

19. TIM RYAN (D)

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19) You know I think it’s a very complicated relationship that Israel obviously has with Hamas and dealings with the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. And I think the United States needs to play a much bigger role in trying to resolve that problem. I think the president has been very disengaged and we need to be a neutral broker, but recognizing the importance of Israel and the relationship we have with them for all of the other relationships we have in that region. Well, I think they could do a better job, and I think we all need to participate in the discussion. The United States needs to maintain in some its ability to broker these peace agreements. The problem today is we are not even really trying.

(After traveling to Israel as part of a House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee delegation, 3/30/16) I was honored to have the opportunity to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss and reaffirm the important strategic relationship between our two nations. I remain committed to using my position on the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee to strengthen partnerships with our allies around the globe, including our most steadfast ally in the Middle East, Israel. Touring the Iron Dome battery further emphasized the importance of this relationship, the need for increased collaboration moving forward, and the value of close friends in the region.

20. JOE SESTAK (D)

(Interview with Philadelphia Jewish Exponent, 5/19/10) I strongly support Israel’s security, having visited Israel more than half a dozen times during my naval career. I believe that Israel serves as a vital ally to the United States and that the unique U.S.-Israeli friendship must be preserved and strengthened for generations to come. It is also my firm belief that the successful negotiation of a two-state solution will advance Israel’s security in the region.

The settlements dispute [details here] should not have occurred between the United States and Israel, two stalwart allies. The way it was handled by both nations has not helped bring about a positive engagement. The United States must keep in mind that if Israel does not feel secure, then it is less willing to take risks for peace, and we must continue to ensure that Israel’s security in the region is our No. 1 goal.

Sestak, a retired Navy admiral and 2-term Democratic Pennsylvania congressman, criticized Israel’s blockade of Gaza. He then ran in a Senatorial primary bid against Arlen Specter, the Israel partisan who had just switched from Republican to Democrat. The Dem establishment, including Obama, backed Specter, but Sestak won the primary. Conservative pro-Israel groups spent millions targeting Sestak, who then narrowly lost the general election to Republican Pat Toomey…

(2/24/08) I am proud to have visited Israel at least five times and to have seen firsthand the courage and steadfast resolve of its people. Throughout Israel’s nearly 60-year history, Israelis have fought overwhelming odds to reestablish the birthplace of the Jewish People, and today it remains the only democracy in the Middle East. Surrounded by challenges on all sides, Israel is steadfastly working towards its goals of peace and security.

21. ERIC SWALWELL (D)

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19) Israel is a country that needs to work with the Palestinian people to find a two-state solution. I support putting the US back into the UN Commission on Human Rights. I support increasing aid to the Palestinian people. And I’m going to fire Jared Kushner on day one, because he has no business being on the job of seeking a two-state solution or finding peace in the Middle East. It requires serious scholars and a serious leader committed to making it happen. That’s what I’m going to do on day one.

I would like to see Israel not conduct any further settlements into the West Bank. I don’t oppose any geographical changes in either region, Israel and the Palestinian area, until we have a two-state solution. So I would press both sides; for the Palestinians to sort out who speaks for them, whether it is the PA or Hamas, and for the Israelis to negotiate and have a partner on the other side to seek that two-state solution. But I’m more interested in the future, I’m not going to go back into the past, because the future depends on a stable and secure Middle East.

22. ELIZABETH WARREN (D)

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19) I think that Israel is in a really tough neighborhood. I understand that. They face enormous challenges, and they are our strong ally. We need a liberal democracy in that region and to work with that liberal democracy. But it is also the case that we need to encourage our ally, the way we would any good friend, to come to the table with the Palestinians and to work toward a permanent solution. I strongly support the two-state solution, and I believe that a good friend says to the Palestinians and to the Israelis: come to the table and negotiate. The United States cannot dictate the terms of a long-term settlement for the Palestinians and the Israelis, but what it can do is urge both of them to go there and to stay out of the way — to let them negotiate the pieces that are most important to them for a lasting peace.

(Remark after 2nd week of Great March of Return, 4/12/18. Over 30 mostly unarmed Palestinians had been killed by Israeli sharpshooters.) I am deeply concerned about the deaths and injuries in Gaza. As additional protests are planned for the coming days, the Israel Defense Forces should exercise restraint and respect the rights of Palestinians to peacefully protest.

(Letter from Warren and 9 other Senators to PM Netanyahu, 11/29/17) We write today to urge your government not to demolish the Palestinian village of Susiya and the Bedouin community of Khan al-Ahmar. The displacement of entire communities would be an irreversible step away from a 2-state solution, and we urge your government to abandon its efforts to destroy these villages.

(Also read this – Warren voted $225 million to Israel while it was in the midst of its 2014 invasion of Gaza. This year she cosponsored legislation to give Israel $38 billion.)

23. MARIANNE WILLIAMSON (D)

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19) I think there are many countries  including the Untied States that behaves in ways that don’t always meet international standards of human rights. As president of the United States I would have an equally robust commitment to both the legitimate security concerns of Israel and the human rights of the Palestinians and the economic hopes and opportunities and dignity of the Palestinian people.

(Remarks during CNN interview, 4/14/19) With me as president, they will know that they have in the United States a president who listens deeply and totally hears; the leaders of the Palestinian authority will know I listen very deeply. In me, you would have a president who says those settlements are illegal. I would rescind the president’s affirmation of sovereignty of Israel over the Golan Heights…[My] love for Israel is second only to my love for the United States…The alliance of the United States with Israel is extremely important. It should be extremely important to all of us. If I’m president of the United States, the world will know, our greatest ally is humanity itself.

24. ANDREW YANG (D)

(New York Times interview question, Do you think Israel meets international standards of human rights? 6/19/19) Israel is a very very important ally of the US. Certainly, some of the actions that are being taken there are deeply problematic and run afoul of some of the standards we’d like to see countries meet. I’d hesitant to say they are in violation of those standards.

…and one lone Independent

BERNIE SANDERS (I)

The killing of Palestinian demonstrators by Israeli forces in Gaza is tragic. It is the right of all people to protest for a better future without a violent response. I’m extremely concerned by reports that President Trump plans to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel. There’s a reason why all past U.S. administrations have avoided making this move, and why leaders from all over the world, including a group of former Israeli ambassadors, have warned Trump against doing it: It would dramatically undermine the prospects for an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement, and severely, perhaps irreparably, damage the United States’ ability to broker that peace. What the U.S. should be doing now is bringing adversaries in the Middle East together to seek common solutions, not exacerbating tensions in this highly volatile region.

Israel is not, cannot, just simply expand when it wants to expand with new settlements. I think if the expansion was illegal, moving into territory that was not their territory, I think withdrawal from those territories is appropriate. I happen to think that those expansions were illegal.

I think most international observers would say that the attacks against Gaza were indiscriminate and that a lot of innocent people were killed who should not have been killed. Look, we are living, for better or worse, in a world of high technology, whether it’s drones out there that could, you know, take your nose off, and Israel has that technology. And I think there is a general belief that, with that technology, they could have been more discriminate in terms of taking out weapons that were threatening them.

(3/21/16) To my mind, as friends — long term friends with Israel — we are obligated to speak the truth as we see it. That is what real friendship demands, especially in difficult times…But it is important among friends to be honest and truthful about differences that we may have…I am here to tell the American people that, if elected president, I will work tirelessly to advance the cause of peace as a partner and as a friend to Israel. But to be successful, we have also got to be a friend not only to Israel, but to the Palestinian people, where in Gaza unemployment today is 44 percent and we have there a poverty rate which is almost as high. So when we talk about Israel and Palestinian areas, it is important to understand that today there is a whole lot of suffering among Palestinians and that cannot be ignored. You can’t have good policy that results in peace if you ignore one side.

(5/06/17) If a two-state solution fails, Takruri asked Sanders, would he support “one-state with equal rights for Israelis and Palestinians alike, and equal citizenship?” “No, I don’t,” he said. “I mean, I think if that happens, then that would be the end of the state of Israel, and I support Israel’s right to exist.” 

Sanders has gone back and forth on Palestine. Unless his progressive base pushes him, he may continue to straddle the fence.

The Political Lynching of Marc Lamont Hill: What You’re Not Being Told

Renegade Editor’s Note: Marc Lamont Hill and his supporters are definitely not going to stand up for the rights of White people, who are being targeted for genocide and ethnic cleansing by the same forces who are oppressing the Palestinians. Instead they will constantly equate jewish supremacism with apartheid, to make Israel just seem like an extension of “White supremacy.” However, this piece does go to show what we already know, that both sides of the political spectrum are completely controlled by powerful jewish interests who demand complete obedience.

By 

(MPN— After his UN Speech marking the International Day of Solidarity with Palestine last week was twisted so as to smear him as an anti-Semite, Marc Lamont Hill was subjected to a “political lynching” that saw him fired from his role as a political commentator on CNN and will now see Temple University — his other employer — investigate whether and how to reprimand him for his statements.

During his speech, Hill had called for solidarity with Palestinians and drew on the history of African Americans’ struggle against slavery and apartheid in the United States as an inspiration for the solidarity. Hill then noted that “if we are to operate in true solidarity with Palestinian people, we must allow the Palestinian people the same range of opportunity and political possibility” that were afforded African Americans, including “self-defense” and other tactics that do not fit neatly with “non-violence.”

However, the part of Hill’s speech that has been deemed the most controversial was his concluding call for a “a free Palestine from the river to the sea,” which recognizes the reality that the area historically known as Palestine is, in fact, not free, as Palestinians in the territory are currently under siege from a decade-long blockade, under military occupation, or under an apartheid legal system. Yet Hill’s detractors have directed their outrage at that single line, twisting it to mean the destruction or “genocide” of the Israeli state, while also failing to recognize the genocide of Palestinians that accompanied the creation of the state of Israel in the first place.

Since he was dismissed from his role at CNN, many of the same voices that pressured the news organization to fire Hill are now pushing for Temple University to do the same. On Tuesday, Temple University’s newspaper — The Temple News — published a story reporting that the university is set to “investigate” Hill and is determining whether he can be “reprimanded” by the university for the statements that he had made at the United Nations. The university had previously stood by Hill. Notably, many of the strongest voices that have been calling for Hill to be fired first from CNN and now from Temple University have close ties to the Israeli government, top U.S. Israel lobby organizations, or pro-Israel stalwarts with ties to the U.S. political establishment.

Trouble at Temple

Last Friday, the Philadelphia Inquirer published an article in which it noted that one of the people pushing for Hill to be fired from Temple University was Leonard Barrack, who was described as a “Temple trustee and major donor to the university.” Barrack, who is also a Temple alumnus and former finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), was quoted as saying that “He [Hill] called for the destruction of the State of Israel in code words. I am very upset about it. I think it was anti-Semitic.”

However, the article fails to note that Leonard Barrack is also former president of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia,which regularly hosts events in Philadelphia with American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), arguably the most influential Israel lobby group in the U.S., and StandWithUs, an Israel lobby group whose activities on U.S. college campuses were exposed in a recently leaked documentary.

Even though the article mentions the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia immediately below where it quotes Barrack, it does not mention this connection between the two nor does it note that the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia or the Israel lobby groups it collaborates with promote Israeli colonialism, the apartheid system imposed on Palestinians by the Israeli state ,and the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from historical Palestine.

Barrack, given that he is a Temple trustee as well as a major donor who is also politically influential, clearly made his outrage heard, as evidenced by recent statements from the chairman of Temple’s board of trustees, Patrick O’Connor, who told the Inquirer, “the board’s not happy. The administration’s not happy. People wanted to fire him right away. We’re going to look at what remedies we have.” Both O’Connor and Barrack are prominent lawyers in Philadelphia in addition to being Temple trustees.

Another Temple University alumnus with connections to the Israel lobby pushing for Hill to be fired is the President of the Zionist Organization of American (ZOA), Morton Klein. Klein went even further than Barrack in expressing his outrage over Hill’s speech, calling for the university to fire Hill, whom he called a “Bigot Jew-hater.” Klein also condemns Hill for his past statements on Palestine, including voicing his support for Ahed Tamimi — whom Klein calls a “convicted Palestinian-Arab terrorist” — and for denouncing “settler encroachment” and the “systematic abuse of Palestinian children,” which Klein equated to “blood libel.”

Klein concludes his long statement on Hill, which was quoted by numerous news outlets, by stating:

As a Temple University alumnus from where I received two degrees, I am especially shocked, embarrassed and ashamed that Mr. Hill teaches at my alma mater and has a named Chair no less. His working at Temple can only hurt fundraising and support for the University.”

Like Barrack, Klein has considerable political pull in this situation, not because of his ties to Temple University necessarily, but because of his ties to the Trump administration and Trump’s largest political donor, Sheldon Adelson. Klein, who is also close to former Trump advisor Steve Bannon, was instrumental in installing John Bolton as National Security Adviser by leading the campaign to have Bolton’s predecessor, H.R. McMaster, fired over alleged “anti-Israel” beliefs. Bolton is a close confidant of Sheldon Adelson, the largest donor to Trump and the Republican Party. Adelson also funds the organization Klein leads, ZOA.

Hill’s head sought by pro-Israel right and left

In addition to ZOA, other notable Israel lobby groups, such as the American Jewish Committee (AJC), have been vocally calling for Hill to be fired. For instance, AJC’s “chief storyteller,” Avi Mayer claimed that Hill’s speech called for the “violent annihilation” of Israel and mischaracterized Hill as a Hamas supporter for opposing U.S. funding of Israel’s Iron Dome defense system. The U.S. gives Israel over $3 billion annually in military aid, which is set to top $3.8 billion this year.

Embedded video

Avi Mayer

@AviMayer

On Tuesday @CNN aired a devastating report on antisemitism in Europe. Today CNN’s @marclamonthill echoed Jihadist calls for Israel’s violent annihilation, calling for “resist[ance]” to achieve “a free Palestine from the river to the sea.” Not a great look.

Notably, prior to working for AJC, Mayer worked as a “foreign media liaison” for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). He has also worked in the Israeli embassy in Washington and for AIPAC.

AJC claims to be very different from ZOA in the sense that AJC seeks to cater to “liberals” while ZOA is focused more on Republicans and conservatives. However, both are equally committed to promoting Zionism. Indeed, AJC was instrumental in promoting the Israel-centric definition of anti-Semitism that seeks to define certain criticisms of the Israeli state as anti-Semitism. The group is exceptionally well-funded, with an annual income of over $49 million, most of which comes from private donors.

Notably, a subsidiary of AJC, UN Watch, has also been very vocal in its condemnation of Hill. UN Watch is frequently quoted by media outlets on a variety of issues related to the United Nations and its alleged bias towards Israel. However, the fact that it is a “wholly owned subsidiary” of AJC is rarely noted, with the outlets only sometimes noting that UN Watch is a “pro-Israel monitor.”

In crosshairs of “fiercely Zionistic” National Council of Young Israel

Another important and controversial Zionist organization pushing for Hill to be fired from Temple University is the National Council of Young Israel (NCYI). NCYI’s call to have Hill fired was widely quoted by both Israeli and U.S. media outlets.

NCYI Young Israel@NCYIYoungIsrael

The is calling on @cnn @templeuniv to fire Marc Lamont Hill following his highly offensive & virulent anti-Semitism remarks. They’re abhorrent, & his senseless promotion of violence against Israel is repugnant.
He can’t be given a platform to serve as a pundit or professor!

NCYI, essentially an umbrella group for over 100 smaller organizations spread throughout different areas of the United States, has a storied history, having been founded over 100 years ago.

As an example, NCYI boasts on its web page that, prior to Israel’s founding in 1948, it funneled weapons to Zionist terror groups like Irgun. Irgun, which NCYI calls a “defense force” on its website, began bombing and attacking Palestinian civilian targets in 1938, 10 years before Israel’s founding. It is best known for the bombing of the King David hotel in Jerusalem, which killed 91 people, as well as the Deir Yassin massacre, which killed over 100 Palestinian civilians as part of a self-described “cleansing” campaign.

Irgun’s leader, Menachem Begin, was called a terrorist and fascist by Albert Einstein and many other prominent Jewish American intellectuals in an open letter published in the New York Times in 1948. He went on to found the precursor to today’s Likud political party. Notably, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, which has strongly condemned Hill’s speech and smeared him as “anti-Semitic,” recently hosted an event celebrating Begin’s legacy, bizarrely likening Begin to Martin Luther King Jr.

In addition to considering its past support of terror groups as a point of pride, NCYI also led the effort to commute the sentence of convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, who had given top-secret classified U.S. government information to Israel and other countries. Pollard was imprisoned in the late 1980s and released in 2015.

NCYI, which describes itself as “fiercely Zionistic,” now promotes anti-BDS initiatives on U.S. college campuses, including Temple University. Owing to its decentralized nature, there is little information on the group’s finances and donors.

A skirmish in a larger war to silence pro-Palestinian advocacy

The firestorm of criticism around Marc Lamont Hill’s speech was undeniably engineered, particularly given the fact that the outrage centered on a single phrase at the end of the lengthy speech and the fact that the subsequent campaign against Hill employed prominent figures and organizations in the Israel lobby, many of whom hold extremist positions and are openly racist.

Ultimately, the controversy that has resulted from Hill’s speech is just the latest iteration of a larger effort to silence advocacy for Palestinian rights in the United States, particularly at a time when Israel’s right-wing government is seeking to annex Palestine’s West Bank and when the Gaza Strip is approaching its breaking point as a result of the inhuman decade-long blockade of the enclave by Israel. It also comes at a time when the Trump administration is set to reveal its Israel-centric “peace plan” that is set to be a disaster for Palestinians and major give-away to Zionist interests.

The Israel lobby that represents extreme political Zionism in the United States is seeking to make an example of Hill in order to avoid having to discuss the important issues he brought up in his speech. These critics of Hill have claimed that he implicitly called for the destruction of Israel as a state. Though Hill did not make that claim, the alarm raised by these critics is ironic given that Israel is currently — and has been for decades — seeking to ethnically cleanse the historic land of Palestine of all of its indigenous inhabitants.

The 8 Worst Pieces of Advice Medical Doctors Give Their Patients

Just one century ago in America, all of the most popular chronic diseases and disorders that we know so well today barely existed, including cancer, diabetes type 2, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s and heart disease.

Still, nearly every medical doctor in the United States blames hereditary genes for these preventable health problems, as if somehow a few generations of humans changed hundreds of thousands of years of evolution basically “overnight.”

Doctors don’t receive training or coursework in nutrition during their 8 to 16 years of college and field work, so of course they’re not going to have any real consumption recommendations for preventing or reversing what IS preventable and reversible.

The once reliable “peer review” process now a myth completely debunked

When medical doctors and their shill scientists want to compete with the advice of nutritionists and Naturopathic Physicians, they always use the same old tired argument – “is their advice coming from peer-reviewed medical journals and research?”

But what if you found out today that hundreds, if not thousands, of medical science research studies and “peer review” papers were based on lies and many were retracted due to fraud? Here come the facts – an avalanche of fake-reviewed papers.

This past spring, the journal Tumor Biology retracted over 100 research papers after discovering the authors FAKED the entire peer review process, and this came on the heels of finding more than 50 other faked papers last year in seven different journals.

Top Scientist, Two Time Nobel Prize Winner: ‘Most Cancer Research is Largely a Fraud’

In a massive sweep and clean-up of faked science, medical journals are being forced to retract papers for multiple reasons, including manipulation of the peer-review process, inappropriately allocating authorship, plagiarism, and attempts to subvert the whole peer review and publication system in order to hire industry shills to write whatever corporations want in order to sell experimental, dangerous drugs.

Some “reviews” are even sent to fake e-mail addresses but use the names of actual researchers, all while pharma hucksters do the bidding (just enough to make it look plausible).

Retraction Watch experts say their team of investigators expect to turn up much more “journal” dirt from the past. That’s right folks, science, allopathic medicine and faked “peer review” research is on sale in America, and it’s been that way for over a century.

The CDC, the AMA and the FDA run a racketeering operation with Big Pharma and the vaccine industry to create chronic sick care customers for life.

Make no mistake about it. For years now, the quacks have been calling nutritionists frauds. Now we know exactly why. Chemical medicine is a racket based on lies and faulty research.

That’s why we are bringing you the truth, so you can distinguish between good advice and really bad advice. Here are the 8 WORST pieces of advice a medical doctor can ever give their patients.

BAD ADVICE #1. Most health problems are hereditary and all we can do is manage them with medications

That’s just a big lie. Most health problems develop after childbirth and are a result of consuming processed, chemical-laden foods and laboratory-made medicine.

Allopathic medicine is all about managing symptoms rather than preventing or reversing disease and disorder. It’s all about the money.

BAD ADVICE #2. Get the flu shot

Influenza vaccines are the most dangerous inoculations of all, and the “proof is in the pudding.” The vaccine industry has paid out over $3 billion in settlement monies to vaccine-injured families, and the majority of that money is for flu shots.

BAD ADVICE #3. All (high) cholesterol is bad

Want the low-down on all cholesterol and how doctors distort the facts to sell you experimental medications with horrific side effects? Learn from Mic the Vegan right here, right now in this short  seven minute educational video.


BAD ADVICE #4. Chemotherapy is your best chance at beating cancer

Did you know that 75 percent of medical doctors and oncologists would refuse any chemotherapy because of its ineffectiveness and its devastating and debilitating effects on the entire human body?

If Chemotherapy Fails 97% of the Time, Why Do Doctors Recommend it?

Here’s what doctors who know better say:

“The majority of the cancer patients in this country die because of chemotherapy, which does not cure breast, colon or lung cancer. This has been documented for over a decade and nevertheless doctors still utilize chemotherapy to fight these tumors.”

BAD ADVICE #5. There is no need to test your blood for heavy metal toxins

Many health problems begin with acute and/or chronic heavy metal toxin overload in the body, including lead, aluminum, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, nickel, chromium and tungsten.

These are often found in conventional food, over-the-counter medications, vaccines and prescription medicines. Nary an MD in America uses a “metal panel” to test their patients for these, which can cause multiple organ damage, even at low levels of exposure.

BAD ADVICE #6. Take aspirin daily to prevent heart attacks

Daily aspirin causes thousands of deaths every year from internal bleeding. If you’re looking for natural remedies to prevent heart attacks look into a plant-based diet and supplement with resveratrol.

BAD ADVICE #7. Avoid organic food or “it’s all the same quality” as conventional food

The fewer chemicals (including pesticides, GMOs and heavy metal toxins) you consume through food, water, medicine and personal care products, the healthier you will be. Period! Use common sense here.

NCI Shocking Admission: Tens of Millions of ‘Cancer Cases’ Aren’t Cancer at All

BAD ADVICE #8. All vaccines are safe and effective

No vaccine in the history of vaccines has ever been proven completely safe or effective. To the contrary, many contain known carcinogens, heavy metal toxins, other animal’s blood, genetically modified organisms, and combinations of live disease strains. Be careful! Consult a naturopathic physician before injecting known neurotoxins.

Breaking: Google Just Scrubbed Natural Health Websites From Its Search Results; Whistleblower Explains How and Why

by Sayer Ji, GreenMedInfo

Earlier this month, in one devastating algorithmic stroke, Google removed many of the top natural health and health freedom websites from their organic search results — some losing as much as 90% of their traffic.

In fact, the term “organic” should no longer be used to describe Google’s referral traffic, as a jaw-dropping undercover investigation by Project Veritas reveals: Google surreptitiously manipulates its search results and auto-suggestions to conform to a very specific set of sociopolitical and economic agendas intended to manipulate elections and promote private interests.

We live in amazing times, albeit intense, filled with incredible darkness and light.

But thanks to the power of the internet, we have a level of freedom of information never enjoyed before by any previous generation on Earth — and that information is the very life’s blood of democratic ideals, and the necessary ingredient for informed consent and health freedom, our primary advocacies.

But what happens when the gate-keepers of the content that flows through this incredible invention, like Facebook and Pinterest, censor and shadow ban certain of its users or content, or their ability to send you messages via email service provider platforms like MailChimp, as we’ve recently experienced on GreenMedInfo.com? Where do we go for information then?

Why not skip the social media filtering and email platform censorship and go back to using Google, you might ask. Aren’t they the very archetype and modern-day oracle of fairness, having become synonymous with looking for and finding objective answers.

After all, wouldn’t you expect that if you typed in turmeric research, GreenMedInfo.com would come up on the first page, given we have the world’s largest, open access resource on the topic which curates over 2,700 peer-reviewed studies relevant to over 800 diseases, on the topic? Whereas a few years ago, our search traffic was growing, today it’s as if we don’t exist on the internet any longer (unless you specifically search for us by name).

Instead, today, you find first page google results on turmeric like: “Turmeric May Not Be a Miracle Spice After All” from Time.com, or “Turmeric: Uses, Side Effects, Interactions, Dosage, and Warning” from WebMD.com, which overlook much of the research we have gathered, and make turmeric sound like it’s just another drug that you have to be very careful take.

Apparently, this is entirely by design!

On June 3rd, in fact, Google rolled out its latest core algorithm change, which obliterated the organic search results for the majority of the top sites in the natural health and health freedom advocating sector of the internet. Sites like DrAxe.comKellybroganmd.com (stats depicted in the image below), and Naturalnews.com saw most of their traffic removed overnight.

Mercola.com, perhaps the most heavily hit of all, broke the story in its two-part report: “Google buries Mercola in their latest search engine update, Part 1 and 2.”


Mercola.com has been a source of whistle-blowing information about Big Pharma and Big Tech collusion for decades, so it is no surprise why Google would take this action against his platform, and similar ones.

In fact, signs of the coming purge came back in 2016, when GlaxoSmithKline signed a $715 million contract to partner with Google, and with increasing partnerships with pharmaceutical companies in 2019 like Sanofi.

Google’s parent company Alphabet is heavily invested in a vaccine company, Vaccitech, founded by scientists at Oxford University. Google, it appears, has become a pay-to-play operation, and contains a specific sociopolitical and economic agenda that is built directly into its search algorithms.

Amazingly, on the same day of Mercola’s report, June 24th, an investigative reporter by the name of James O’ Keefe, founder of Project Veritas, released an undercover video of a top Google executive and a whistleblower from within Google, revealing how the company is manipulating search results to unduly influence elections, but how they are applying an Orwellian-type narrative to the autosuggestions, search results, and google news aggregator feed used by billions daily.

This is a must watch video, and was almost immediately removed by YouTube (owned by Google), further validating how badly they don’t want the information to get out there.

Amazingly, the timing of this video could not be worse for Google. As reported by the Wall Street Journal on June 24th, the Justice Department is preparing an antitrust case against Google.

Additionally, on June 19th, Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) introduced Senate Bill 1914, “A bill to amend the Communications Decency Act to encourage providers of interactive computer services to provide content moderation that is politically neutral,” which would strip Big Tech companies of the immunity they presently enjoy from lawsuits for exactly the type of political manipulation Project Veritas’ video above exposed.

Until Google is held accountable for their actions, and there is industry reform, it will be difficult to get around their full spectrum dominance (Gmail, Google, YouTube, Google Calendar, Google Documents, etc.) unless we find better, privacy-secured, platforms.

And there are quite a few you may not have heard about, including the internet browser alternatives to Google Chrome, such as Brave Browser and Opera, search engines like Startpage.comDuckduckgo.com or Ecosia.org, and email programs like ProtonMail.com. You can also use the communications app Signal or Wire, which provides a level of encryption that may be the best out there.

UPDATE: VIMEO PULLED THE VIDEO, JOINING GOOGE/YOUTUBE’s CENSORSHIP EFFORTS – FURTHER EVIDENCE OF JUST HOW DAMNING THIS REPORT IS. WE ARE LEAVING THE VIMEO TAKE DOWN MESSAGE BELOW.

A back up the video was preserved on the Project Veritas website and is embedded below:

Vimeo provided the Project Veritas team the following explanation for the removal of the video. You be the judge if you believe their reasons were justified.

ADDENDUM: TESTING THE HYPOTHESIS THAT GOOGLE IS MANIPULATING THEIR RESULTS

In order to confirm that O’ Keefe’s accusations against Google are correct, and that they are engaged in manipulating search term auto suggestions, I typed into Google “Vaccines cause…” to see what results it would retrieve. This is the result:

In order to ascertain what the actual search volume for the term in question is, we went to another Google product called Google trends which allows you to see the volume, and what people are searching for, over time. So, we compared the searches: “Vaccines Cause Adults” with “Vaccines Cause Autism.” You’ll see the profound disparity in volume between the two, in favor of the latter.

You can visit the Google trends search and see for yourself here.

Amazingly, Google states that the auto-suggestions are “predictions, not suggestions.” Here’s their official statement:

“You’ll notice we call these autocomplete “predictions” rather than “suggestions,” and there’s a good reason for that. Autocomplete is designed to help people complete a search they were intending to do, not to suggest new types of searches to be performed. These are our best predictions of the query you were likely to continue entering.

“How do we determine these predictions? We look at the real searches that happen on Google and show common and trending ones relevant to the characters that are entered and also related to your location and previous searches.”

Clearly, this demonstrates with Google’s own data that they are intentionally removing certain auto-suggestions from their search to cover up the truth about what people are actually searching for. This also corroborates the hypothesis that they are censoring sites critical of vaccines, or which question vaccine safety; namely, natural health and health freedom promoting websites like our own.

Chemtrails – According to the Swedish newspaper Katrineholms Kuriren, Hagberg is the first major political leader to speak out on the issue of these mysterious trails banding across the sky. 

Swedish Official Admits ‘Chemtrails’ Are Real, Not A Conspiracy

If you suspected that those white streaks lining otherwise pristine blue skies in the wake of unmarked planes are not just your average contrails that are made of pure water vapor, you’d be right.

At least, that’s what the Swedish Green Party leader, Pernilla Hagberg, seems to believe.

According to the Swedish newspaper Katrineholms Kuriren, Hagberg is the first major political leader to speak out on the issue of these mysterious trails banding across the sky.

Unlike normal contrails, these streaks do not fade away into the atmosphere easily. Hagberg has openly stated that these chemtrails — as she herself referred to them — are actually a toxic mix of metals, viruses and chemicals.

In what Hagberg describes as a joint effort between the Swedish government and two U.S. agencies; the CIA and the NSA, the two countries have combined forces to modify atmospheric conditions.

According to the United Nations, deliberately employing these aerosol sprays in the atmosphere is one way in which they hope to control climate change and stabilize our weather.

The thought process here is that spraying aerosols into the atmosphere will help block the sun’s rays and help to cool down the earth, and prohibit global warming.

Of course, when it comes to chemtrails, every excuse for their existence has been used. Whether it’s saving the polar ice caps, blocking out harmful rays from the sun or other weather-based manipulation, it’s clear we are actually the ones being manipulated .

There is great concern over what the potential health affects and risks may be associated with the spraying of aerosols into the air. Also known as geo-engineering, it is a practice that has far too many potential risks.

One of the major concerns is when these chemicals do come to ground, they unleash damaging effects to humans and the environment.

For example, abnormally high levels of toxic materials such as barium and aluminum, have been found in the soil and many water supplies.

This can drastically alter the pH balance found in the soil and literally destroy plant life and be very harmful to other inhabitants of the ecosystem.

Geo-engineering has many perceivable downfalls, never mind all the potential catastrophic effects that people haven’t even thought of yet. One thing is for sure though, if the government came up with it, it’s probably not a good idea.

The Federal Reserve Cartel: The Roundtable and the Illuminati

According to former British intelligence agent John Coleman’s book, The Committee of 300, the Rothschilds exert political control through the secretive Business Roundtable, which they created in 1909 with the help of Lord Alfred Milner and South African industrialist Cecil Rhodes.

The Rhodes Scholarship is granted by Cambridge University, out of which oil industry propagandist Cambridge Energy Research Associates operates.

Rhodes founded De Beers and Standard Chartered Bank. According to Gary Allen’s expose, The Rockefeller File, Milner financed the Russian Bolsheviks on Rothschild’s behalf, with help from Jacob Schiff and Max Warburg.

In 1917 British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour penned a letter to Zionist Second Lord Lionel Walter Rothschild in which he expressed support for a Jewish homeland on Palestinian-controlled lands in the Middle East. [1]

The Balfour Declaration justified the brutal seizure of Palestinian lands for the post-WWII establishment of Israel.

Israel would serve, not as some high-minded “Jewish homeland”, but as lynchpin in Rothschild/Eight Families control over the world’s oil supply.

Baron Edmond de Rothschild built the first oil pipeline from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean to bring BP Iranian oil to Israel.

He founded Israeli General Bank and Paz Oil. He is considered by many the father of modern Israel. [2]

Roundtable inner Circle of Initiates included,

  • Lord Milner
  • Cecil Rhodes
  • Arthur Balfour
  • Albert Grey
  • Lord Nathan Rothschild

The Roundtable takes its name from the legendary knight of King Arthur, whose tale of the Holy Grail is paramount to the Illuminati notion of Sangreal or holy blood.

John Coleman writes in The Committee of 300,

“Round Tablers armed with immense wealth from gold, diamond and drug monopolies fanned out throughout the world to take control of fiscal and monetary policies and political leadership in all countries where they operated.”

While Cecil Rhodes and the Oppenheimers went to South Africa, the Kuhn Loebs were off to re-colonize America.

Rudyard Kipling was sent to India. The Schiffs and Warburgs manhandled Russia. The Rothschilds, Lazards and Israel Moses Seifs pushed into the Middle East.

In Princeton, New Jersey the Round Table founded the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) as partner to its All Souls College at Oxford.

  • IAS was funded by the Rockefeller’s General Education Board
  • IAS members,

…created the atomic bomb. [3]

In 1919 Rothschild’s Business Roundtable spawned the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) in London.

The RIIA soon sponsored sister organizations around the globe, including

  • the US Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
  • the Asian Institute of Pacific Relations
  • the Canadian Institute of International Affairs
  • the Brussels-based Institute des Relations Internationales
  • the Danish Foreign Policy Society
  • the Indian Council of World Affairs
  • the Australian Institute of International Affairs

Other affiliates popped up in France, Turkey, Italy, Yugoslavia and Greece. [4]

The RIIA is a registered charity of the Queen and, according to its annual reports, is funded largely by the Four Horsemen. Former British Foreign Secretary and Kissinger Associates co-founder Lord Carrington was President of both the RIIA and the Bilderbergers.

The inner circle at RIIA is dominated by,

  • Knights of St. John Jerusalem
  • Knights of Malta
  • Knights Templar
  • 33rd Degree Scottish Rite Freemasons

The Knights of St. John were founded in 1070 and answer directly to the British House of Windsor. Their leading bloodline is the Villiers dynasty, which the Hong Kong Matheson family married into. The Lytton family also married into the Villiers gang. [5]

Colonel Edward Bulwer-Lytton led the English Rosicrucian secret society, which Shakespeare opaquely referred to as Rosencranz, while the Freemasons took the role of Guildenstern. Lytton was spiritual father of both the RIIA and Nazi fascism.

In 1871 he penned a novel titled, Vril: The Power of the Coming Race.

Seventy years later the Vril Society received ample mention in Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf. Lytton’s son became Viceroy to India in 1876 just before opium production spiked in that country.

Lytton’s good friend Rudyard Kipling worked under Lord Beaverbrook as Propaganda Minister, alongside Sir Charles Hambro of the Hambros banking dynasty. [6]

James Bruce, ancestor to Scottish Rite Freemason founder Sir Robert the Bruce, was the 8th Earl of Elgin.

He supervised the Caribbean slave trade as Jamaican Governor General from 1842-1846. He was Britain’s Ambassador to China during the Second Opium War. His brother Frederick was Colonial Secretary of Hong Kong during both Opium Wars.

Both were prominent Freemasons. British Lord Palmerston, who ran the Opium Wars, was a blood relative of the Bruce monarchy, as was his Foreign Secretary John Russell, grandfather of Bertrand Russell. [7]

Children of the Roundtable elite are members of a Dionysian cult known as Children of the Sun.

Initiates include,

  • Aldous Huxley
  • T. S. Eliot
  • D. H. Lawrence
  • H. G. Wells

Wells headed British intelligence during WWI.

His books speak of a “one-world brain” and “a police of the mind”. William Butler Yeats, another Sun member, was a pal of Aleister Crowley.

The two formed an Isis Cult based on a Madam Blavatsky manuscript, which called on the British aristocracy to organize itself into an Isis Aryan priesthood.

Most prominent writers of English literature came from the ranks of the Roundtable. All promoted Empire expansion, however subtly.

Blavatsky’s Theosophical Society and Bulwer-Lytton’s Rosicrucians joined forces to form the Thule Society out of which the Nazis emerged. [8]

Aleister Crowley formed the British parallel to the Thule Society, the Isis-Urania Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

He tutored LSD guru Aldus Huxley, who arrived in the US in 1952, the same year the CIA launched its MK-ULTRA mind control program with help from the Warburg-owned Swiss Sandoz Laboratories and Rockefeller cousin Allen Dulles-OSS Station Chief in Berne.

Dulles received information from the Muslim Brotherhood House of Saudi regarding the creation of mind-controlled Assassins. Dulles’ assistant was James Warburg. [9]

The Atlantic Union (AU) was an RIIA affiliate founded by Cecil Rhodes- who dreamed of returning the US to the British Crown.

In 1939 AU set up its first offices in America in space donated by Nelson Rockefeller at 10 E 40th St in New York City. Every year from 1949-1976 an AU resolution was floored in Congress calling for a repeal of the Declaration of Independence and a “new world order”.

Another RIIA affiliate was United World Federalists (UWF) – founded by Norman Cousins and Dulles assistant James P. Warburg. UWF’s motto was “One world or none”. Its first president Cord Meyerstepped down to take a key position in Allen Dulles’ CIA.

Meyer articulated UWF’s goal,

“Once having joined the One-World Federated Government, no nation could secede or revolt…with the atom bomb in its possession the Federal Government would blow that nation off the face of the earth.”[10]

In 1950 James Warburg, whose elders Max and Paul sat on the board of Nazi business combine IG Farben, testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee,

“We shall have world government whether or not you like it- by conquest or consent.”

The AU and UAF are close to the CFR and the Trilateral Commission (TC) – founded by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski in 1974. [11]

The TC published The Triangle Papers which extended the “special relationship between the US and Western Europe” to include Japan, which was fast becoming creditor to the rest of the world. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker was TC Chairman.

TC/CFR insider Harvard Professor Samuel Huntington, who most recently has argued for a “Clash of Civilizations” between the West and the Muslim world, wrote in the TC publication Crisis in Democracy,

“…a government which lacks authority will have little ability short of cataclysmic crisis to impose on its people the sacrifices which may be necessary.” [12]

The Illuminati

The Illuminati serves as ruling council to all secret societies.

Its roots go back to:

  • the Guardians of Light in Atlantis
  • the Brotherhood of the Snake in Sumeria
  • the Afghan Roshaniya
  • the Egyptian Mystery Schools
  • the Genoese families who bankrolled the Roman Empire

British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, who “handled” mafia-founder and 33rd Degree Mason Guiseppe Mazzini, alluded to the Illuminati in a speech before the House of Commons in 1856 warning,

“There is in Italy a power which we seldom mention. I mean the secret societies. Europe…is covered with a network of secret societies just as the surfaces of the earth are covered with a network of railroads.” [13]

The Illuminati is to these secret societies what the Bank of International Settlements is to the Eight Families central bankers. And their constituencies are exactly the same.

The forerunners of the Freemasons — the Knights Templar — founded the concept of banking and created a bond market as a means to control European nobles through war debts.

By the 13th century the Templars had used their looted Crusades gold to buy 9,000 castles throughout Europe and ran an empire stretching from Copenhagen to Damascus.

They founded modern banking techniques and legitimized usury via interest payments.

Templars’ bank branches popped up everywhere, backed by their ill-gotten gold. They charged up to 60% interest on loans, launched the concept of trust accounts and introduced a credit card system for Holy Land pilgrims.

They acted as tax collectors, though themselves exempted by Roman authorities, and built the great cathedrals of Europe, having also found instructions regarding secret building techniques alongside the gold they pilfered beneath Solomon’s Temple.

The stained glass used in the cathedrals resulted from a secret Gothic technique known by few. One who had perfected this art was Omar Khayvam, a good friend of Assassin founder Hasan bin Sabah. [14]

The Templars controlled a huge fleet of ships and their own naval fleet based at the French Atlantic Port of La Rochelle. They were especially cozy with the royals of England.

They purchased the island of Cyprus from Richard the Lion Heart, but were later overrun by the Turks.

On Friday October 13, 1307 King Philip IV of France joined forces with Pope Clement V and began rounding up Templars on charges ranging from necromancy to the use of black magic. Friday the 13th would from that day forward carry negative connotations.

“Sion” is believed to be a transliteration of Zion, itself a transliteration for the ancient Hebrew name Jerusalem.

The Priory of Sion came into public view in July 1956. A 1981 notice in the French press listed 121 dignitaries as Priory members. All were bankers, royalty or members of the international political jet set.

Pierre Plantard was listed as Grand Master. Plantard is a direct descendant, through King Dagobert II, of the Merovingan Kings.

Plantard, who owns property in the Rennes-le-Chateau area of southern France where the Priory of Sion is based, has stated that the order has in its possession lost treasure recovered from beneath Solomon’s Temple and that it will be returned to Israel when the time is right.

He also stated that in the near future monarchy would be restored to France and other nations.

The Templars claim to possess secret knowledge that Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene, fathered children to launch the Merovingan bloodline and was the son of Joseph of Arimathea. [15]

Joseph was the son of King Solomon. Solomon’s Temple is the model for Masonic Temples, which occur without fail in every town of any size in America. It was a place of ill repute where fornicating, drunkenness and human sacrifice were the norm.

Accorder to British researcher David Icke, it’s location on Jerusalem’s Mount Moriah may have also been an Anunnaki flight control center. The Anunnaki are the reptilian/aliens revealed by the Sumerian clay tablets – the oldest written accounts of humankind known.

The Crusader Knights Templar looted their huge store of gold and numerous sacred artifacts from beneath the Temple. King Solomon was the son of King David- who during his 1015 BC reign massacred thousands of people.

Icke calls King David “a butcher” and asserts that the king wrote a good chunk of the Bible. His son Solomon killed his own brother to become King. He advised Egyptian Pharaoh Shiskak I, marrying his daughter.

Solomon studied at Akhenaton’s Egyptian Mystery Schools, where mind control was rampant. The Grand Lodge of Cairo spawned a network of secret societies including Assassins, Cabalists, Freemasons and the Afghan Roshaniya.

Those who pass through to the highest levels become Illuminati.

Icke claims the Canaanite Brotherhood was headed by the god/king Melchizedek, who may have been an Anunnaki.

The King focused on a Hebrew understanding of the Ancient Mysteries. The Order of Melchizedek became the secret society associated with the Cabala.

King Solomon developed his vast wisdom studying the Sumerian Tables of Destiny which Abraham had possessed. Abraham may have also been of Anunnaki origin.

Both he and Melchizedek had been tutored by the Sumerian Brotherhood of the Snake, whose name may have something to do with the Biblical creation story, where Adam and Eve are tempted from a bountiful garden of Eden (a hunting and gathering existence?) into a world of “sin and servitude” by a snake.

When the Bible says that the first couple ate the forbidden fruit, could it mean that Eve was impregnated by the snake – an Anunnaki serpent (the Nephilim of the Book of Genesis) – thus damning all Adamus to a life of toil under serpent king bloodline control?

The basis of the Sumerian Tables of Destiny which Abraham possessed became known as Ha Qabala, Hebrew for “light and knowledge”.

Those who understood these cryptic secrets, said to be encoded throughout the Old Testament, are referred to deferentially as Ram. The phrase is used in Celtic, Buddhist and Hindu spiritual circles as well.

The Knights Templar brought Cabbalistic knowledge to Europe when they returned from their Middle East Crusade adventures. [16]

The Knights created the Prieure de Sion on Mt. Zion near Jerusalem in the 11th century to guard such holy relics as the Shroud of Turin, the Ark of the Covenant and the Hapsburg family’s Spear of Destiny – which was used to ‘kill’ Jesus Christ.

The Priory’s more important purpose was to guard Templar gold and to preserve the alleged bloodline of Jesus – the royal Sangreal – which they believe is carried forth by the French Bourbon Merovingian family and the related Hapsburg monarchs of Spain and Austria. [17]

The French Lorraine dynasty, which descended from the Merovingans, married into the House of Hapsburg to acquire the throne of Austria.

The Hapsburgs ran the Holy Roman Empire until its dissolution in 1806, through King Charles V and others. The family traces its roots back to a Swiss estate known as Habichtburg, which was built in 1020. The Hapsburgs are an integral part of the Priory of Sion.

Many researchers believe that Spain’s Hapsburg King Philip will be crowned Sangreal World King in Jerusalem. The Hapsburgs are related to the Rothschilds through Holy Roman Emperor Frederick Barbarossa’s second son Archibald II.

The Rothschilds – leaders in Cabala, Freemasonry and the Knights Templar – sit at the apex of the both the Illuminati and the Eight Families banking cartel.

The family accumulated its vast wealth issuing war bonds to Black Nobility for centuries, including,

  • the British Windsors
  • the French Bourbons
  • the German von Thurn und Taxis
  • the Italian Savoys
  • the Austrian and Spanish Hapsburgs

The Eight Families have also intermarried with these royals.

Author David Icke believes the Rothschilds represent the head of the Anunnaki Serpent Kings, stating,

“They (Rothschilds) had the crown heads of Europe in debt to them and this included the Black Nobility dynasty, the Hapsburgs, who ruled the Holy Roman Empire for 600 years. The Rothschilds also control the Bank of England. If there was a war, the Rothschilds were behind the scenes, creating conflict and funding both sides.” [18]

The Rothschilds and the Warburgs are main stockholders of the German Bundesbank.

Rothschilds control Japan’s biggest banking house Nomura Securities via a tie-up between Edmund Rothschild and Tsunao Okumura. The Rothschilds are the richest and most powerful family in the world. They are also inbred.

According to several family biographers, over half of the last generation of Rothschild progeny married within the family, presumably to preserve their Sangreal. [19]

The 1782 Great Seal of the United States is loaded with Illuminati symbolism. So is the reverse side of the US $1 Federal Reserve Note, which was designed by Freemasons.

The pyramid on the left side represents those in Egypt- possibly space beacon/energy source to the Anunnaki- whose Pharaohs oversaw the building of the pyramids using slave labor.

The pyramid is an important symbol for the Illuminati bankers.

They employ Triads, Trilaterals and Trinities to create a society ruled by an elite Sangreal few presiding over the masses – as represented by a pyramid.

The Brotherhood of the Snake worshiped a Trinity of Isis, Osirus and Horus – who may have been Anunnaki offspring.

The Brotherhood spread the concept of Trinity to,

  • Christian (Father, Son and Holy Spirit)
  • Hindu (Brahma, Shiva and Krishna)
  • Buddhist (Buddha, Dharma and Sangha) faiths [20]

The reptilian eye atop the pyramid depicted on the $1 bill is the all-seeing eye of the Afghan Roshaniya, known alternately as The Order and Order of the Quest – names adopted by Skull & Bones, Germanorden and the JASON Society. [21]

Take a magnifying glass and look at the eye’s pupil. There is an image of an alien inside the pupil. I’m not kidding.

Novus Ordo Seclorum appears beneath the pyramid, while Annuit Coeptis appears above the all-seeing eye. Annuit Coeptis means “may he smile upon our endeavors (Great Work of Ages)”.

Above the eagle on the right side of the note are the words E Pluribus Unum, Latin for “out of many one”.

The eagle clutches 13 arrows and 13 olive branches, while 13 stars appear above the eagle’s head. America was founded with 13 colonies. Templar pirate Jaques deMolay was executed on Friday the 13th.

The numbers 3, 9, 13 and 33 are significant to the secret societies. 33rd-degree Freemasons are said to become Illuminati.

According to the late researcher William Cooper, the Bilderberger Group has a powerful Policy Committee of 13 members. It is one of 3 committees of 13 which answered (until his recent death) to Prince Bernhard – member of the Hapsburg family and leader of the Black Nobility.

The Bilderberg Policy Committee answers to a Rothschild Round Table of 9. [22]

Putin May Look Like an Ethno-Nationalist, But He’s Far Too Cozy With Certain Jews and Muslims

  

THERE IS AN unfortunate tendency in right-wing dissident circles here in America to view Vladimir Putin through rose-colored glasses. There is no question that Putin is not generally beholden to deeply anti-White, frequently Jewish oligarchs, in the same way Western leaders are. There is also no question that Putin is far less hostile to traditional Western ways of thinking (he apparently links them to Christianity, though) than Western leaders are. Similarly, as a geopolitical strategist, Putin is head and shoulders above most Western political leaders.

Nevertheless, all is not green on the other side of the fence. Putin may not be nearly as foolish and incompetent as our leaders, but he is not all good either. Many ignore the fact that Putin is more pragmatist than populist, that he is more than willing to placate or even abet the enemies of the White race, ethnic Russians included, when it suits his political interests. He may not hate Whites and Christians, as many Western leaders clearly do, but he is not immune to pressure from powerful business interests, precarious compromises, back-dealing, and outright corruption. He is no rightist ideologue. He is equal parts Orban and Berlusconi. That can be a good thing in certain contexts, but it carries with it some very serious perils.

Putin’s tolerance of large-scale immigration from the Caucasus and Central Asia speaks to his practical nature. He is understandably concerned about low birthrates among ethnic Russians and the economic stagnation that can accompany a lack of laborers. The cost of his practicality here is not trivial, however. Importing Islam from Central Asia and the Caucasus means tolerating non-Russian ethnic enclaves with alien political and moral values. It also means a significant uptick in the terrorism threat. Central Asian militants, like Chechen militants, are known to blow up apartment buildings and train cars on occasion. This is not an insignificant price to pay for more cheap labor for businesses and more cannon fodder for the Russian military.

Of course, it must be noted that Muslim immigrants from Central Asia are not typically as problematic as Muslim immigrants from the regions the rest of Europe imports them from (North Africa, South Asia, and the Middle East). Central Asians have 5-10 IQ points on ethnic Arabs and South Asians and are simply not as inclined to radicalism. Radical religious thinking is not really part of their heritage. Rampant radical Islam seems dependent upon both bad ideas and bad genes. Islam alone is not sufficient. The Kazakhs and Albanians, for example, are not really inclined to Islamism and terror. Albania in particular, despite being predominantly Muslim, is a fairly irreligious and overall religiously tolerant country. A sufficiently high native IQ and a healthy diversity of non-Sunni Islamic sects (Alawite, Twelver, Bektashi, Ismaili) seem to act as buffers against Islamism among Muslims. [Some of these Muslims on the Russian border areas are, for all practical purposes European genetically. Many others are half or or predominantly European. But half or predominantly European is not the same as European. — Ed.]

Moreover, many of Islam’s greatest minds come from Central Asia. The regions just south of the Eurasian Steppe (specifically Khorasan and Khwarezm) are without question the most intellectually prolific predominantly Muslim regions. Multiculturalists like to point to men like Avicenna and Al-Khwarizmi as great Middle Eastern polymaths, not knowing that both were not really Middle Eastern at all, and neither were Arab. Both were actually essentially “steppe” Persians from modern-day Uzbekistan (historically “Kharasan” to Iranians). Even the greatest Iranian poet of all time, Rumi, was from greater Khorasan, in either extreme northern Afghanistan or extreme southern Tajikistan. So was Zoroaster himself in all likelihood.

Nevertheless, it is hard to argue that an influx of Muslim workers from Central Asia will promote stability or tranquility in Russia, will make Russia genuinely wealthier or better off in the long-term, or will serve to preserve Russian traditions and mores. Yet Putin, supposed defender of White, Western peoples, is happy to crack down on dissidents who point this hard reality out. Fundamentally totalitarian Cultural Marxist hate speech codes are enforced just as zealously in Russia as they are in Germany, Sweden and the UK. Indeed, Germany’s hate speech provisions were the template for Russia’s! How can Russians oppose the Islamization of Russia if they can’t even mock Muhammad or criticize Islam?

Russia is fortunate that it is not a top destination for desperate and poor 3rd world populations, but this is primarily a result of certain economic and cultural factors. It has little to do with Putin or his policies. Moreover, although Muslims have been a part of Russian society for many centuries, there is a big difference between a 5% Muslim minority and a 25% Muslim minority. A 25% Muslim minority will radically transform the fundamental character and social fabric of Russia. Moreover, it’s hard to see a 25% Muslim minority not increasing from there.

Although nominally speaking Russia is a nation where church and state are separate, the Russian Government has a long history of funding religious structures and meddling in religious affairs. The Russian government uses soft power to control and direct the content of religious sermons and the official stances of large religious organizations, especially in the Muslim community. Although the voices of Tatarstani clerics like Valiulla Yakupov and Ildus Faizov are Muslim voices to be cherished by all infidels, in that they take a hard stand against Jihad and Islamism, they likely had some links to the Kremlin.

We see a similar phenomenon here in America. It is not a coincidence that American evangelicals are hardcore Zionists. The religious propaganda they consume daily is financed heavily by Jewish oligarchs and powerful Zionist entities connected to the DC swamp. The silly ideas they are constantly bombarded with are not just indirectly compromised, but directly compromised, by the the interests and values of the [Jewish-dominated] US power structure.

High-profile moderate clerics (like Yakupov and Faizov) are probably largely sincere about their desire for peaceful interfaith relations within and without Russia, but their notoriety is often no accident. Indeed, the perception within the Muslim community that Yakupov and Faizov might be compromised by outsiders/infidels probably contributed to their being targeted by radicals in 2012. The Kremlin has the means to thrust certain Islamic scholars into the fore and render them influential, just as the US power structure has the means to make porcine imbeciles like Meghan McCain and insufferable blowhards like Max Boot politically influential. Miraculous how those who serve the interests of the powerful somehow always become powerful themselves. Both the US Government and the Russian Government are willing and able to co-opt political and religious groups/movements to advance the interests of their respective empires.

At the end of the day, Putin may feel that he can import millions of Muslims and yet tame, contain, and control Islam, along with the adverse consequences of importing it, through a combination of clever campaigns to compromise religious clerics and religious movements, and by heavy-handed police state tactics, including widespread surveillance and harsh counter-terror laws. I am not so sure, however. The long-term consequences for Russia of cozying up to Islam could be quite bad, even dire. Only time will tell if he is right. Putin is a capable strategist to be sure, but no one, not even Magnus Carlsen, is entirely immune to major blunders and missteps.

One can be full of kindness and love, or in Putin’s case self-mastery and cunning, but one can not sleep next to a mad dog.

Israel Sentences Palestinian to 9 Months for Facebook Posts

Arrestedfor.Facebook

THE FORMER secretary-general of Fatah in Jerusalem has been sentenced to nine months in an Israeli prison for activity on social media. (ILLUSTRATION: One of eight Palestinian men detained in December 2014 in East Jerusalem under the same charges…. During his interrogation, it emerged that he was under suspicion because he had written “forgive me” on Facebook.)

The Israeli magistrate’s court in Jerusalem handed the sentence to Omar al-Shalabi after he was convicted of inciting anti-Jewish violence and supporting “terror” in posts and comments on Facebook.

Al-Shalabi was one of eight Palestinian men detained in December 2014 in East Jerusalem under the same charges.

Their indictment said that Israeli intelligence had monitored the men’s Facebook postings since last June, after three Israeli settlers were kidnapped and killed in the occupied West Bank.The intelligence said that their online comments had raised tensions across Jerusalem and encouraged acts of “terrorism.”

They cited in particular postings on the murder of 16-year-old Muhammad Abu Khdeir, who was kidnapped and killed by a group of Jewish extremists in July, as well as on a spate of Palestinian attacks on Israeli military and civilians that mostly took place in occupied East Jerusalem.

The indictment included details of the Facebook postings such the number of “likes,” “shares” and “comments” by friends on Facebook.

Last month, two of the groups arrested along with al-Shalabi –Adnan Ghaith,the current secretary-general of Fatah in Jerusalem, and Islam al-Natsheh– were released from an Israeli prison following five months without trial.

Separately in April, Israeli police arrested a 17-year-old for a week for a posting on Facebook.Hadi al-Ajlouni, who was released from prison after paying a fine of 1,000 shekels ($254), told Ma’an he was detained while leaving his house in the Old City on suspicion of planning an attack on Israelis.

During his interrogation, it emerged that he was under suspicion because he had written “forgive me” on Facebook.

The teenager had written the post following an argument with his brothers, he told Ma’an.Israelis on social media routinely and openly incite violence against Palestinians, especially during heightened periods of tensions such as this summer’s military offensive on Gaza, but none have yet faced prosecution.

In recent months, the Palestinian Authority has also arrested Palestinians over postings on Facebook.

In November 2014, it was reported that Ayman Mahariq, a journalism student at Al-Quds University, was arrested and beaten for posting remarks critical of the security forces, while in January, Bara al-Qadi, a media student at Birzeit, was arrested for postings criticizing the Palestinian Authority.

ADL Calls on Google to Take Action After Revelations That Deniers Included in ‘Holocaust Historian’ Search Results

avatarby Rachel Frommer

Google image bar results for a search of “Holocaust historian” lists David Irving, among other Holocaust deniers. Photo: Screenshot.

An Anti-Defamation League (ADL) cyber-hate expert has called on Google to take action following revelations that Holocaust deniers are included in the image bar results for a search of “Holocaust historians.”

Jonathan Vick — the ADL’s associate director of investigative technology and cyber-hate — said he was certain that Google would edit the algorithm for the search results to ensure the exclusion of deniers and antisemites.

“[Google has] been confronted with this sort of issue in the past, and there is no real question of how they will respond,” Vick said. “These are unintended and painful consequences of an algorithm that clearly needs human intervention.”

The very first “historian” listed is David Irving, with other results including David Hoggan, author of The Myth of the Six Million, and one-time Columbia University historian Harry Elmer Barnes, who wrote a 1964 article titled “The Zionist Fraud,” in which he claimed Israel manufactured the Holocaust to squeeze reparations from Germany.

All three individuals were discussed in Deborah Lipstadt’s Denying the Holocaust, published in 1993 and considered by many to be a seminal text in the study of Holocaust denial. This was the book that triggered Irving’s failed 1996 libel suit against Lipstadt, a case immortalized last year in the film, “Denial.”

Vick said he was highly concerned by the fact that “we don’t know how long this issue has been up, and it would’ve been nice if someone had noticed earlier.” He noted that having misinformation “like deniers being included in a list of legitimate scholars” readily available across the internet “certainly impacts Holocaust education.”

Google press representatives did not respond to repeated requests for comment.

In 2013, it was exposed that auto-fill suggestions on the search engine for “Jews should” included a host of disturbing antisemitic phrases. Google subsequently edited that algorithm to exclude the most offensive statements from appearing in the auto-fill feature.

UPDATE: The Google search results for “Holocaust historian” have now been updated to exclude the image bar entirely.

How to Reclaim the Sovereignty of Your Mind

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

As the mainstream matrix of society approaches becoming completely out of sync with the nature of the original Spark, our instruments (mind, body, spirit) are purposely being made out of tune with the organic source of life.

The evolution of human consciousness through artificial and synthetic means is promoted over natural ways. This can eventually lead to the creation of a completely controlled culture and humanity. A restrictive education system and the media’s so-called news facilitate the molding of our opinions by misinforming and dis-informing (truth mixed with lies makes for the most convincing manipulation).

There is a reason why imagination is not encouraged in schools. The rewards are directed to people who will play the game, not those who dream outside of it. The goal appears to be the controlling of our consciousness, directing our energy and thought-forms away from us and towards a parasitic matrix. However, the siphoning only works if you agree to it, consciously or unconsciously.

Would you like to be free and reclaim your sovereignty? Then let’s co-create a new culture and stay mindfully aware of elements that will undoubtedly do their best to co-opt it and farm it for their benefit and our loss. And by a new culture I mean a truly new culture.

It appears that sometimes even the so-called Alternative Community that believes it’s disclosing secrets of the repressive matrix doesn’t realize it is selling the propaganda better than the opposing consciousness could because of its appearance as a grassroots movement to uncover the truth of our reality.

Mindfulness and awareness-expanding meditation can assist us in being aware of masterful manipulations and I highly suggest it as a powerful tool to reclaim the sovereignty of your mind.

Humans are easily influenced. Most of us fall into the first net of psychological manipulation, which is the mainstream cultural matrix mentioned earlier. However, there is a second net that is as powerful as the first, if not more.

This second net catches those who have become awakened to the lies that have been fed to them their entire lives. It catches those who have rejected the misleading and the polluting of their minds. However, those who have rejected that matrix have accepted a new matrix that they have invested their trust in.

The reason is a human one, so it is not difficult to understand why this happens but it’s important to realize it does happen. Those who reject anything from the mainstream but openly accept almost anything that comes out of the alternative community are being played by a sophisticated construct or program that has been specifically crafted to work for those who have fell through the holes of the first net.

People caught in this net believe with great conviction they have discovered the truth but by not employing the tools they have been given (reasoning & critical thinking, for example), they become so convinced that it is difficult for them to see they are being fooled and supporting the consciousness that feeds on them to survive.

The repressive system is well aware of this psychological underpinning and uses it to its benefit as to cover all bases. Masterful manipulation indeed.

It is very difficult for someone who feels they are enlightened to be open to the possibility that they have only been cleverly convinced they are enlightened. For example, by attaching a benevolent group of non-terrestrial beings to the original agenda it becomes re-infornced.

Those who actively yearn for seeing reality the way it is, or hope it is, are captured into the matrix control system of the corrupted opposing consciousness that thrives by taking away our power and sovereignty.

This is not to say that those who are active voices in the alternative culture necessarily have ill intent. After all, your parents didn’t tell you that the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, and Santa Claus were real because they had a nefarious agenda to advance.

If you believe there are benevolent non-terrestrial beings out there, then understand that if they were the enlightened beings you see them as they would probably be aware of the natural universal laws, free will, and karma which would bar them from trying to “save you” from yourselves.

The way we become liberated is by standing up and refusing the System’s control and guidance and instead accepting the responsibility of our thoughts, emotions and actions for ourselves. All the information you need is out there. What is not out there is within you. And remember, the details matter less than what you do with the lessons.

We are strongest when we are fully in our power, because the power we contain within is part of the same power that is the reason this beautiful reality exists in the first place. We are only powerless if we believe we are. We are born with free will and it’s our duty to stand up and liberate ourselves.

We have voluntarily accepted and, in a way, enjoyed being controlled and (mis)guided for so long that no group or individual is going to help us anymore than they already have. We’ve been given all the tools we need to understand how we are being suppressed, used, and manipulated. Now is the time for us to withdraw our consent from these controlling forces.

Have courage to blaze your own path, because the only ones who will take you by the hand to guide you are those who will do so towards their own self-serving desires. The game was designed to be unwinnable. The way you win is to not play. Ultimately, you control you. The choice of action is still yours. You can take back control.

It was 200 years ago during another major transition phase in human evolution that Enlightenment philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau declared that “Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains.” Today, this statement still rings true when we look at all the various systems of control humans have constructed from their imaginariums and imprinted into human society.

Place yourself in the position of an extraterrestrial species conducting an anthropological study of humans living on Earth.

What do you think their conclusions will be? If we take a step back and look at the violations of our sovereignty over the span of our recorded history, we will see that the path of our actions has been leading to a future where it may be better to not even imagine the level of dystopia, yet it is a very real possibility if we don’t make different choices moving forward.

This is especially poignant considering our level of technology has surpassed our level of maturity in using it.

Let’s get really lucid for a moment. Will we choose the path to our own survival as a species or will we choose extinction? Regardless of our level of perception, spiritual beliefs, political beliefs or affiliations, culture or any other variable, this is a choice we are all faced with…the survival of a species… of humanity.

Humanity is at a Choice Point. Do we have the courage to throw away the shackles of oppression? If we truly wish to transition into an egalitarian society and an enlightened age then the choice is obvious. It’s time to end the collective hallucination.

We need to wake up and smell the coffee. The physical universe is an extremely hostile environment to us. If we don’t maintain the safe cultivation zone that is Earth, then that’s the end of human existence. This is certainly not a comfortable thing to consider but riding into the future on a burning freight train with guns ablazing believing everything will work itself out is foolish.

Fear and love are the two major motivators of our actions. We have the choice to either listen to fear when it tells us to cut off the bad parts or we can listen to love when it tells us to heal the bad parts. Will we be constructive or destructive?

Again, it’s our decision to make and hopefully we will not succumb to our primal aspects dictating our actions. The world around us is a reflection, a mirror showing us who we are. To change our world, we must change ourselves.

We need to get a good look at the wounds we still have as a collective consciousness, otherwise we will repeat the mistakes of the past and this time, the consequences may be lethal.

Take a look back at entirety of recorded history and feel the gravity of the statement that this is the most transformational period in our history on this blue marble. This is the time of transition into a new paradigm.

Live presently in a way that elevates the peace, love, and happiness and reduces suffering on this planet. We’re on this galactic starcraft together and during our time on it why not do what we can to activate the hyperdrive towards a harmonious and enlightened existence?

Within all of us is the power to determine the course we will take. It all starts with our free-willed conscious choice. The choice we make then inspires. The inspiration then spreads through the collective consciousness.

Once it permeates, we visualize and actualize a redirected course, a different way. The dawn of the new day can be an incredibly bright one, but we need to individually and collective take an active role in creating that bright future present.

Ole Dammegård at the Open Mind Conference 2017

At the Open Mind Conference 2016, Ole Dammegard discussed the templates and methods normally used in false flag operations. This year, he is back again with another angle on the subject. Ole has been a returning guest at the Open Mind Conference since 2013. The reason for this has been because of the recurring alleged terror attacks in Western Europe and the USA. As an expert, he has been able to debunk the official stories behind many of these alleged terror attacks, such as the Copenhagen shootings, the mass shooting in Norway, the Nice, Charlie Hebdo, Bataclan and Brussels airport attacks, to mention but a few.

This year, he will talk about the Berlin, Istanbul, Jerusalem, Fort Lauderdale and Melbourne attacks. Prepare yourself for some explosive information. Ole Dammegård is an author, inventor, former journalist and investigator who has dedicated some 30 years of his life into researching global conspiracies. His main focus has been finding out the real truth behind the assassinations of the Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, John Lennon, Lady Diana and the truth behind 9/11, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Boston Marathon bombings etc. Ole has discovered very strong links between the terror attacks e.g. identifying people that he alleges are linked to both the JFK and Olof Palme murders. The global elite seem to have used the same ‘skilled mechanics’ for decades who do their dirty jobs for them. Ole has been a special guest on many programmes, such as The People’s Voice, Red Ice Creations (10 hours) (Sweden/USA), Project Camelot, (USA), Veritas Radio (USA), The Real Deal with Prof. Jim Fetzer (USA), No Lies Radio with Dr Kevin Barrett (USA), Super Woo Radio (Australia), Global Peace Radio (UK), Open Your Mind Radio (Ireland), Talk Radio Europe (Spain), Freedom Radio (Denmark) and Freedom Reigns, Australian Phi in the Sky. He has also had articles published on prominent websites such as Veterans Today. His books include Coup d’etat in Slow Motion, Shadow of Tears, Re-Mind Me and Yolanda Yogapanda. Ole was awarded the Prague Peace Prize as an investigator researching the truth and is considered a leading expert on false flag operations. He has been a speaker at many international conferences, including the recent JFK Conference, Dallas, in 2016.


How to create a short targeted yoga practice to change your mental state

5

When you want to change the way you think or feel at any given moment, the first thing you need to do is identify what exactly it is that you are experiencing right now. Are you tired? Irritated? Frazzled? Impatient? Sad? Disappointed? Something else? The simple act of acknowledging how you feel is a useful therapeutic tool for decreasing the emotional charge. It works because your limbic system (more emotional part of the brain) and your prefrontal cortex (more rational part) tend to work like a seesaw – stronger activation in one area diminishes activation in the other. “When your limbic system becomes aroused, the resources available for your prefrontal cortex decrease. However, this works the other way, too. Increasing the arousal of the prefrontal cortex can dampen down the arousal of your limbic system. You can make this switch happen by trying to find the right word to identify an emotional sensation, a technique that is called symbolic labeling.” (1) This will serve as a jump off point for your yoga practice.

Here is a simple template for creating a short yoga practice to change your mental state. Let’s use it to create a practice to deal with strong emotions.

1. Identify the state that you are currently in – point A – and where you would like to end up (realistically) – point B. In this example we will try to move from being mildly irritated (point A) toward feeling more balanced and clear (point B).


2. Think of a main theme for your practice that could help you move from point A to point B, and which meditation/reflection would cultivate that theme. If you find yourself lost in the sea of possibility, or if nothing at all comes to you, it is always useful to fall back on the images of basic elements and their qualities: fire can be purifying and clarifying, water is flowy and powerful, air is light and spacious, earth is nourishing and essential to growth. You can also use images from nature, like trees (that are grounded via roots, yet can move with the wind), mountains (that are sturdy and peaceful), sun (which is warming and life-giving), and even hurricanes (that spin fast, yet have a very quiet place in the center). In our example, the main theme will be purification, and we will use the image of fire. Since we are dealing with emotions, we will want to use the energy of emotion as fuel for an imaginary fire to purify and bring more clarity. We will use the fire to purify the three main sites of the body where you might experience an emotion: head, chest and belly.


3. Assess the energetics of your practice. Will this be a Brhmana, Langhana or Samana (balancing) practice? The choice should be directly linked to your theme. This will guide your selection of poses and breath patterns. (Our practice will be Samana because we want to both purify (Langhana quality) and enhance (Brhmana quality). So we will use the elements of both practices and add Kapalbhati (purification Kriya).


4. Think of how you can anchor your main theme in your body with poses and symbolic gestures. Pick two-three poses where you will manifest that idea. These will be your Core Poses. (We will use the gesture of touching the head, chest and belly with hands to bring attention to those areas. We will do this gesture in Sukhasana, Vajrasana and part of Virabhadrasana 1.)


5. Pick two-three Compensation Poses for your Core Poses that can also be used to support the main theme. (We will use Cat-Cow and Uttanasana to mentally follow the air as it moves through the head, chest and belly).

Change your mental state with yoga
And that’s it! You can change your starting and ending position, but generally speaking, for mind-centered practice it is best to start and end in a comfortable sitting position (on the floor, bolster, blanket or chair). This allows you to establish your theme and to deepen the breath at the very beginning of the practice, and then to observe the effect of the practice at the end. If you choose other starting and/or ending positions, you need to have good reasons for it.

Whatever you do, be sure to stay present with your experience for the entire practice. At the end of the practice take time to assess whether or not you were able to get to your target state, and analyze which elements seemed to work and which ones didn’t. It’s always best to be honest with yourself about your findings. You can use that information next time to fine-tune your practice. Next week we will feature a 25-minute yoga practice to deal with irritability or any other strong emotion using this template. Tune in!


OSHO: Mind Is Always Afraid

Paris or New York or any other place, “Fear” is the big word everywhere. Fear of terror attacks, fear of refugees, fear of the fact that the world is changing– fear is holding everybody in its grip. Osho explains to us the underlying structure of our fears based in the mind. “Mind is very much afraid of love. Mind is very much afraid of trust. Mind is very much afraid of anything that has to do with the heart. The heart is naturally the master…”

GILAD ATZMON – On “Chosen”-Mess

On Chosen-Mess

 RSS  

A few days ago the BBC reported on an extraordinary French identity theft scam. For two years starting in late 2015, an individual or individuals impersonating France’s defence minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, scammed an estimated €80m from wealthy French patriots.

The victims of this fraud were tricked into believing that they were being contacted by France’s Defence Minister who was requesting money to help pay ransom for journalists held hostage by Islamists in the Middle East. Since France officially does not pay ransom to terrorists, the fake minster assured the victims that payments could not be traced and asked for the funds to be wired to a bank in China.

The BBC deemed the operation “one of the most outlandish and successful rackets of recent times.”

You may not be surprised that the accused evil genius behind this con is a French-Israeli character of Tunisian Jewish background named Gilbert Chikli. Chikli grew up in the working-class Belleville neighbourhood of northeast Paris.

In 2015, Chikli was found guilty of scamming money from French corporations by pretending to be their chief executive. By the time the verdict was reached, Chikli was safely ensconced in the Jewish State, which refuses to extradite its nationals.

Chikli’s luck ran out in August 2017 when he made the mistake of travelling to Ukraine where he was arrested at the request of the French police. Chikli told police he was on a pilgrimage to the tomb of a well-known rabbi. But a search into his phone’s communication revealed that he went to Ukraine to buy a silicone mask

The alleged crime saga didn’t end there. Recently reports began to arrive at French embassies around the world that once again a fake Le Drian, now French foreign minster, was trying to squeeze money out of influential ‘friends of France’. In February, three French-Israeli citizens were arrested near Tel Aviv in connection with this new swindle.

Chikli’s racket is astonishing, creative; criminologists may decide that it borders on genius. Although Chikli didn’t invent the art of the swindle, he ratcheted it up to a higher level.

What I find remarkable about Chikli’s operation is not the stunning amounts of money, the sophistication, or even the chutzpah involved: it is the fact that Chikli ’s scam was dependent upon the humane compassion of others. He banked on the fact that humans feel and care for each other. We are dealing with a disgraceful blow against the most precious aspect of humanity, that which sustains kindness and brotherhood.

It is not surprising that some very wealthy and influential people fell for Chikli’s racket and for the obvious reason: decent humans would find it hard or even impossible to imagine the extent of Chikli and his friends’ deception.

And Chikli is not alone in his practices. In recent years we have seen a number of instances of gross misbehavior and abuse and on a spectacular scale. And as is the case of Chikli we find Jews and Israelis at the centre of these embarrassing sagas.

In 2010 an Israeli court ruled that seven Israelis suspected of scamming tens of millions of dollars from U.S. pensioners in a so-called ‘Nigerian scam’ could be extradited to the United States to face trial there. Israel has bought itself a reputation as the location of some of the most horrendous crimes such as organ trafficking (look here and here), and is notorious as a hub of human traffickingblood diamondcrypto currency criminalsthe binary options scam, and the scope of gross unethical behavior extends well beyond the borders of the Jewish State.

In 2012 Britain was shocked to discover that one of its most popular TV stars was a serial pedophile who had committed sex crimes against children throughout his 50 year career. Jimmy Savile raped children in the BBC’s dressing rooms, in orphan homes and in institutions that cared for the disabled. No one bothered to defend Jimmy Saville. Yet when Lord Janner faced similar allegations, the British establishment was somehow hesitant and confused. Despite the fact that Lord Janner was suspected of sexually abusing more than 30 children from the mid-1950s until the late 1980s the British judicial system found itself struggling.

Janner, a former Leicester MP (Labour) was the chairman of the Board of Jewish Deputies (BOD), a body that claims to represent British Jewry and the founder of the Holocaust Educational Trust (HET). To date, neither the BOD nor the HET has expressed any regret for its past association with Janner who died at age 87 before a trial could take place.

Lord Janner’s family is taking good care to restore their father’s reputation. Soon after the Lord passed away we learned from the British press that Janner’s three grown-up children asked “to take part in the investigation into his alleged crimes.”

Outside the investigation’s London headquarters, Lord Janner’s son, Daniel Janner QC, attacked the “shambolic and discredited inquiry” (into his father alleged crimes).

He claimed there had been a “total failure” to acknowledge “our late father’s good character and legal status as innocent”

In February 2018 we learned that Lord Janner’s son vowed to bring a private prosecution against the man who initiated the Westminster child abuse claim s, who has himself been charged with paedophile offences.

I am not in a position to verify whether Lord Janner was guilty of the crimes he was accused of but I can confirm that the enquiry into his suspected sex abuse has collapsed. In all, 33 men and women accused Lord Janner of abusing them. Their plight has been forgotten. One of the most embarrassing chapters in Britain’s past remains untouched.

Lord Janner is hardly alone as a suspect in an abusive sex scandal. For the last two years we have been learning about another Zionist enthusiast who left more than 80 victims traumatized, abused and humiliated.


Jeffrey Epstein’s story is similarly abusive. The convicted sex offender prostituted dozens of underage girls and should have spent the rest of his life in jail. Again this is no ‘one-off’ abuse of an underage child, he was a serial sex predator.In October 2017, The New York Times and The New Yorker reported that tens of women came forward and accused Harvey Weinstein, formerly head of Miramax Films and The Weinstein Company (TWC), of rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse over a period of at least three decades. More than 80 women in the film industry have since accused Weinstein of such acts. Weinstein denied “any non-consensual sex”.

According to Joseph Recarey, the lead Palm Beach detective on the case, Epstein was essentially operating a “sexual pyramid scheme.”

The Vox writes that the girls and women who reported abuse by Epstein, meanwhile, were markedly powerless. Most of them “came from disadvantaged families, single-parent homes or foster care,… Many of the girls were one step away from homelessness.”

In November 2017 the genius comedian Larry David was criticized in the Jewish press for admitting on Saturday Night Live that many of those accused of sexual harassment in Hollywood are Jewish.

Jews often brag about their genius gene pool and about the fact that so many Nobel Prize winners are Jewish (20%). Jews frequently boast about their power in politics, media and finance. “Jews must never be afraid to use their well-earned power” was the title of a recent article by Alan Dershowitz, who was a member of Epstein’s legal team and was later accused by one of the victims’ lawyers of himself participating in the sex trafficking ring.

This raises the obvious question of whether the same ‘gene-pool’ that created so many spectacular Jewish minds is also responsible for the list of gross misconduct as illustrated above. I am not a biologist nor an evolutionary scientist, but I admit I am not a great believer in the notion of a ‘Jewish gene.’

I contend that Chikli, Janner, Weinstein and Epstein have something else in common. Their actions display a dismissal of others that verges on complete contempt for humanity. This is the crux of choseness. To be chosen is to see oneself as an exceptional creation. It entails blindness to otherness. It is a form of impunity. To be chosen often involves a near or total lack of empathy. Such lack is often defined in terms of acute narcissism and psychopathy.Chikli is clearly aware of the human inclination for empathy, it is that impulse that he allegedly exploited to his own benefit, he just lacks that empathic quality himself.

Not every Jew identifies him or herself as chosen. None of the Jews in my social circuit displays any of the horrid symptoms described above. As a reader of early Zionist texts, I know well that Zionism was born to emancipate Diaspora Jews from their exceptionalist cultural traits and to make them ‘ I am also aware that some rabbinical Judaic interpretations of choseness are somehow different from the contemporary Zionist secular Jewish political interpretation of Jewish exceptionalism. Nor is choseness limited to Zionists or Israelis. Choseness has become the pillar of Jewish self identification. Choseness is what binds Jews together. This includes anti Zionist Jews boasting about the precious contribution of the so-called ‘Jews in the movement’ and the Israelis and Zionists who celebrate their choseness at the expense of the indigenous people of Palestine.

Like an early Zionist, I would have liked to see Jews liberate themselves from the choseness prison but I accept that such a shift can not occur in the form of a collective or political movement. The escape from choseness to the ordinary must be an individual struggle, a surrender to self-contempt that eventually matures into a genuine search for peace and harmony with the universe, with the soil and with one’s neighbours.


Jews Are Not Israel Or The Chosen People


The Eleventh Commandment

First, they came for the artists…

An article last week in the French version of the Times of Israel laments the fact that school teachers in France are experiencing increasing difficulty when trying to “educate” students on the “Holocaust”. Predictably, the finger is pointed at the French Muslim community. In order to remedy the situation, public education policy will now ensure that teachers undergo special workshops and in-training days.

My first thought when skimming through the article was French comic Dieudonné’s contribution to the Revisionist cause. The enemy, neatly assisted by the likes of ex-PM Manuel El blanco Valls, severely shot themselves in the foot trying to censor him: 8,000 people turned up at a recent show in Marseilles and the comic’s success has never been more widespread.

As I’ve often stated on radio shows and elsewhere, Dieudonné was one of my main influences. His work led me to discover and study the Revisionists’ achievements, notably those of Professor Robert Faurisson, who was invited by Dieudonné to appear on stage more than a decade ago in order to receive the Prize for Insolence and Infrequentability, presented by Dieudonné’s co-star, Jacky, dressed in a pair of striped pyjamas with distinguishing badge.

The appearance of Dieudonné and Faurisson together on stage resulted in another criminal proceeding against Dieudonné for incitement under the 1990 Gayssot Act, with the comic being found guilty. An appeal to the European Court of Human Rights invoking Article 10 and the right to freedom of expression was rejected on the grounds that such a performance amounted to a political meeting and was therefore not a theatrical comedy show…

God must have forgotten to tell Moses about The Eleventh Commandment:

XI: Thou shalt not offend God’s chosen people.

The above legal case is cited in the recent ruling by District Judge John Zani who found me guilty of causing ‘gross offence’ for singing satirical songs about Jewish power and the “Holocaust”. Reiterating the sentiment of Italian Revisionist, Carlo Mattogno, any attempt by the System to further set in stone the orthodox “Holocaust” narrative “is simply an honour paid to me personally…” [Carlo Mattogno: Auschwitz: A Three-Quarter Century of Propaganda, p. 100.]

The enemy has seen the counter-productive result of censorship tactics against Dieudonné. Therefore, are we to deduce from my own case that I must be silenced at all costs, preventing my work from gaining prominence? One reasonable explanation is that my songs are simply too effective: the official “Holocaust” doctrine clobbered in just a few minutes’ worth of musical entertainment; an effective weapon of mass destruction, as proven by my recent guilty conviction for offending God’s “chosen elite”, as is the case with similar proceedings brought against Dieudonné in France.

My conviction, the first of its kind in the UK – one which the Crown Prosecution Service was initially reluctant to pursue, only changing tack after severe bouts of arm-twistingfrom my accusers (whose loyalty is to an illegitimate foreign state and not to Britain) – is merely another stepping stone along the way to breaking the myth of the six million. Even if I am eventually sent to prison, this will not change the fact of the matter that there simply is no evidence any such “genocide” actually took place.

The Jewish Talmud preaches that “Even the best of the ‘goyim’ should all be killed.” (Soferim 15). Our predators, assisted by controlled media, can wheel out all the weasel words they like: Neo-Nazi, anti-Semite, Holocaust denier, amateur musician, etc., etc. I’m still breathing, still writing, still composing; Dieudonné is still touring; Prof Faurisson, now 89 years old, is still making speeches; Germar Rudolf and Carlo Mattogno are still publishing Revisionist works; Mike Walsh is still putting out real news. We believe in our Cause and, in the end, that is all that matters.

Thank you for your support.

Most Democratic Candidates Still Afraid to Criticise Israel’s Violations of Palestinian Rights

The attitudes of Democratic voters toward the Palestinian-Israeli conflict have become decidedly more balanced in the past two decades. Favourable attitudes toward Palestinians are up, while attitudes toward Israel appear to be in decline. While overall views of Israel remain positive, substantial numbers of Democrats are opposed to Israeli policies, namely illegal settlement construction and violations of Palestinian rights. Israel’s leader, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is also viewed negatively by most Democrats.

These shifts in opinion have placed many Democratic presidential candidates in a bind, especially those who have served in Congress or as governors. As conscious as they may be of their base’s changing mood, they have also been schooled not to alienate pro-Israel donors or cross Israel’s lobbyists, who can, if aroused, distract their campaigns with a barrage of protests.

It was against this backdrop that I watched the results of a months-long New York Times project, in which they interviewed 21 of the Democrats running for president on a range of foreign and domestic policy issues that will confront the next president. There were questions on Afghanistan, handguns, healthcare, immigration and the death penalty.

Most intriguing to me was question no. four: “Do you think that Israel meets international standards of human rights?” because it was deeply revealing about each of candidates’ principles and their understanding of and readiness to deal with the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

It was disturbing how few of the candidates appear to have given the matter any serious thought. With the notable exceptions of Senator Bernie Sanders, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and congressmen Eric Swalwell and Seth Moulton, most of the elected officials stumbled about like frightened high schoolers being asked a test question, for which they had not prepared.

Only a handful found the inner strength to suggest that Israel was, in fact, violating human rights. Most respondents hedged their replies noting the challenges Israel faces or “Israel attempts meet human rights standards… but could do a better job.” A few, senators Kamala Harris and Michael Bennet,Mayor Bill de Blasio and Congressman John Delaney, actually indicated that they believed that Israel was upholding human rights. Some, instead of addressing the question, shifted to a more comfortable critique of the failings of President Donald Trump or Prime Minister Netanyahu, as if to suggest that problems began with these two leaders.

Additionally, those who hedged their answers implying that Israel’s record was less than perfect offered, as their way out of appearing to be critical of Israel, something like, “Israel’s trying to do the right thing, but sometimes they fail and need our help.” Finally, other than the few that mentioned illegal settlement expansion, most failed to consider other human rights violations that occur in occupied Palestine. The only Democrat who did was Seth Moulton, who cited his earlier support for legislation calling for “not supplying Israel with weapons and goods if they do not uphold standards for the treatment of Palestinian kids in prison”.

As they awkwardly struggled to get out of the challenge foisted upon them, you could almost see the wheels spinning inside their heads weighing their need to assert their pro-Israel bona fides with the newly-felt need to be relevant to the changing mood of the Democratic electorate. It was for many “a damned if they do, damned if they don’t” situation.

What became painfully clear was the extent to which most of the candidates, either because they were loath to offer any criticism of Israel or because they simply had no idea how to answer this question, found themselves forced to recall comfortable, though irrelevant, talking points.

The top-of-mind reply of a majority of the respondents was a variation of “Israel is our most important ally” or “Israel is a liberal democracy”, completely dodging the question asked. Equally off-topic was the support a majority of the candidates expressed for a “two-state solution”.

You can read the transcripts of their comments, but far more interesting was watching their faces as they struggled to answer this simple question. First, there was the obvious discomfort at being called upon to talk about a topic they would rather avoid. Then, you could see them fumbling about trying to remember talking points and looking for a safety net. At one point, you can see the lights go on when they recalled the magical “two-state solution” formula. It was as if at the end of a long and gruelling half-baked answer to an unwanted question, they remembered “Ah ha! Two states, that is the way out of this mess.” Then without any connection to the question or anything they had said up until that point, they would shift into their comfort zone and say “we should be doing more to press the parties to negotiate a two-state solution”, end of answer and smile, as if they were saying “Phew! Did I get out of that one?”

What is especially troubling about this “fall back” two-state solution answer, in addition to the fact that it had nothing to do with the question that was asked, is that most seemed to act as if just saying they supported two states absolved them of needing to say or do more, for this reason, I have come to refer to it as “the two-state absolution”. The notable exception here was Congressman Julian Castro, who acknowledged that illegal settlement expansion made the goal of two states “harder”.

Most disappointing was the non-response of the usually thoughtful Senator Elizabeth Warren, who said that she would urge the Israelis and Palestinians to “come to the table and negotiate” and then “stay out of the way to let them negotiate”, as if that had never been tried before and as if the ascendancy of far-right in Israel is not hell-bent on doing everything they can to avoid an independent Palestinian state.

The bottom line is that most of the Democrats running for president have a long way to go to in dealing with Israel/Palestine. The reason is simple. Because of the pervasive presence and power of pro-Israel forces, elected officials have long taken a “hands-off” approach to dealing with this issue. Many have learned that stepping “out of line” brings painful results, calls that tie up their office phones and angry e-mails that fill up their inboxes, leading them to avoid this issue like a disease. The result is what I called “willed ignorance”. They focus on “their issues”, the ones that got them elected and ignore those that can only bring trouble. Therefore, they do not receive or even request briefings on this critical question.

But the situation is changing. The evolving attitudes of the electorate, especially key blocs of Democratic voters and the disgust of many Democrats with Netanyahu’s policies and the Trump/Netanyahu “love-fest”, all point to the fact that this will not be the last time uncomfortable questions about Israel-Palestine will be asked. It is time for those who hope to lead us to take the time to learn about this issue that has vexed every US president for 70 years.

Flyers to Expose White Genocide in South Africa

I recently posted a new documentary, which I was glad to see get a lot of traction around the internet.

As I am currently unable to organize a militia to go down and protect my fellow White people from the genocide they face, the next best thing I can do is raise awareness. I was asked by someone to create a flyer to post around, so I took a few minutes to design this:

Download the PDF

Now all you have to do is download the flyer, print it, and post it up around town. It is black and white, so it won’t cost you much.

The website linked at the bottom is for the only documentary that actually tells the real history of White people in South Africa. It also calls out the sinister tribe who funded and led the Communist terrorists in the ANC. This crucial information is almost always omitted from presentations.

If you would prefer to link to a different site or think you have a better idea for a flyer, get to work and post a link in the comment section! Even if you don’t have good graphic design skills, you can use an online service like canva.com to create good-looking flyers. I also encourage you to take some video and/or pictures of your flyering to inspire others to do the same. By raising awareness of White genocide in South Africa, we not only help our racial kinsmen there, we also plant seeds about the ongoing program of White genocide all across the world.

Refugees Welcome and Europe´s “Final Solution”

Europe and the Final Solution

A common topic is how to deal with the refugee crisis. It is perfectly understandable that Europeans, mindful of their security and their children’s future, should be concerned. Unsurprisingly, getting rid of the unwanted non-Europeans is seen to be the priority concern. Here, some suggest putting the horse in front of the cart.

It would never enter the heads of aliens to presume residential rights in China, Russia, Saudi Arabia or Japan. Why Europe? Admittedly, a strong incentive is to expect sustenance as compensation. After all, had Europe not bombed their countries back to the Stone Age, there wouldn’t be need for them to set foot outside their own habitat. The problem for ordinary decent Europeans is not just the expulsion of their double-crossing political and media elite. The difficulties of an unwanted non-European presence are aggravated by a small minority of raucous self-hating white renegades.

Any debate and solution must deal with the problem of self-hating White renegades. Most decent Europeans are sickened by the cringing welcome given to those shuffling along Merkel’s red carpet. In the opinion of some there is an obvious solution which must be seized. Europeans, directly or indirectly involved or assisting in Europe’s troubles must be identified. Their personal details collated and filed, should there be future occasion to enact legislation under which the race-traitors be brought to account.

Investigations should follow the lives of miscreants and employment status of race-reprobates taken into account. One traitor’s cap size doesn’t fit all; there will be a vetting procedure to provide an equitable solution to those involved. Many culprits carelessly caught up in the conspiracy to commit indigenous Europeans to a process of genocide might expect terms of re-education. It is doubtful if offenders would be permitted to work in public service, employed by media, publishing or broadcasting, or to take part in political life.

There will of course be worse case miscreants whose nationhood and race loyalty has been severely compromised. There can be only one solution; for renegades whose servile loyalty to those of alien race has been amplified at the expense of their own sorely-pressed racial kin. These race-delinquents’ must be expelled from Europe. Their relatives, in cases where there is no wish to accompany outcast kin, must be re-educated, kept under surveillance and subject to extensive screening in job applications.


Auschwitz Chemistry: How Science Proves The ‘Final Solution’ Was Systematically Gassing Lice Infested Clothing To Save Lives

By John Wear

Above: “Gassing Clothing”. Left: Healthy inmates at work sterilizing clothing. Right: Healthy prisoners at Auschwitz working in one of the larger clothing disinfestation chambers in the camp.

Above: The Auschwitz camp employed a number of delousing stations, which used steam and Zyklon-B to kill lice in prisoner clothing. This picture shows autoclave number 2, seen from the “dirty” clothing side. Infected clothing was put on hangers attached to a trolley and pushed inside the chamber. Dirty clothes were put on hangers on a trolley which was pushed into the chamber on two short rails. The disinfection stations were constructed with double doors so that the infected and cleaned clothes would not be mixed together. This picture was taken while the camp was operational.

The Chemistry of Auschwitz/Birkenau

Defenders of the Holocaust story have attempted to discredit scientific reports which disprove the existence of homicidal gas chambers at German camps during World War II. For example, Deborah Lipstadt’s defense attorney, Richard Rampton, referred in court to The Leuchter Report as “…a piece of so-called research which is not worth the paper it is written on…”[1]

Dr. Richard Green states about Germar Rudolf:

Owing to the fact that he actually has some understanding of chemistry, many of his deceptions are more sophisticated than other Holocaust deniers…Ultimately, he engages in the same deceptions and specious arguments as [Fred] Leuchter and [Walter] Lüftl , but the case he makes for those deceptions and arguments involves more difficult chemistry.”[2]

This article will discuss attempts by chemists to discredit scientific reports which disprove the existence of homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz/Birkenau during World War II.

Historical Background

In 1988, the Canadian government put Ernst Zündel on trial a second time for the criminal offense of knowingly disseminating false news about “the Holocaust.” As part of his defense in this trial, Zündel commissioned the American gas-chamber expert Fred Leuchter to make a scientific examination of the alleged homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz, Birkenau and Majdanek. The resulting Leuchter Report is the first scientific study of the alleged German homicidal gas chambers.[3]

In addition to reporting that the alleged homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz, Birkenau and Majdanek were structurally unsuitable for gassing, Leuchter researched the chemical properties of the Zyklon B fumigant. Leuchter found that Zyklon B is a highly toxic compound that releases deadly hydrogen cyanide gas. The released hydrogen cyanide gas clings to surfaces and  reacts chemically with materials containing iron, forming ferrocyanide compounds that have a distinctive blue color called Prussian Blue. Since building materials normally contain a certain amount of rust (iron oxide, usually between one and four percent), repeated exposure to hydrogen cyanide gas would result in Prussian Blue staining on the walls of the alleged gas chambers.[4]

Leuchter took forensic samples from the alleged gas chambers at the visited sites and a control sample from the delousing facility at Birkenau. The samples were analyzed by an independent laboratory in the United States. The laboratory found no significant ferrocyanide compound traces in the samples taken from the alleged homicidal gas chambers, but the sample from a wall of the Birkenau delousing facility had heavy concentrations of the ferrocyanide compounds. Leuchter concluded that this result would be impossible if the alleged homicidal gas chambers had been repeatedly exposed to hydrogen cyanide gas.[5]

Germar Rudolf, a certified chemist, expanded on Leuchter’s work by writing the Rudolf Report in the spring of 1992. The Rudolf Report, which has been updated and revised several times, focused on engineering and chemical aspects of the alleged homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz and Birkenau. Rudolf observed in his on-site examinations that all of the delousing facilities at Auschwitz, Birkenau, Stutthof and Majdanek have one thing in common: their walls are permeated with Prussian Blue. Not only the inner surfaces, but also the outside walls and the mortar between the bricks of the delousing facilities have Prussian Blue staining. Nothing of this sort can be observed in any of the alleged homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz and Birkenau.

Rudolf also took samples from the alleged homicidal gas chambers and the delousing facilities at Auschwitz and Birkenau. Similar to Leuchter’s samples, the alleged homicidal gas chambers exhibit only insignificant traces of ferrocyanide residue on the same order of magnitude found in any other building. The samples from the delousing chambers, however, all showed very high ferrocyanide residues. Rudolf determined that, if mass execution gassings with hydrocyanic acid had taken place in the alleged homicidal gas chambers, the rooms in the alleged homicidal gas chambers would exhibit similar ferrocyanide residue as the delousing chambers. Therefore, Rudolf concluded that mass gassings with Zyklon B did not occur in the alleged homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz and Birkenau.[6]

Kraków Institute of Forensic Research

The Kraków Institute of Forensic Research published results in 1994 that attempted to refute the Leuchter Report. The team from this forensic institute led by Dr. Jan Markiewicz claims not to have understood how it was possible for Prussian Blue to have formed in walls as a result of their being exposed to hydrogen cyanide gas. The researchers therefore excluded Prussian Blue and similar iron cyanide compounds from their analyses, resulting in much lower cyanide traces for the delousing chambers. Their analysis made it practically impossible to distinguish between rooms massively exposed to hydrogen cyanide and those which were not: all would have a cyanide residue of close to zero. The Kraków researchers concluded from their analysis that since the gas chambers and delousing facilities all had the same amount of cyanide residues, humans were gassed in the gas chambers.

Germar Rudolf gave the Kraków researchers irrefutable proof that Prussian Blue can be formed in walls exposed to hydrogen cyanide gas, citing a case document in expert literature.[7] The authors of the Kraków report refused to change their report and admit they made a mistake. Rudolf writes:

The only ‘scientific’ attempt to refute Frederick A. Leuchter’s most intriguing thesis turns out to be one of the biggest scientific frauds of the 20th century. How desperate must they be—those who try to defend the established version of the Holocaust, i.e., the alleged systematic extermination of Jews in homicidal ‘gas chambers’, that they resort to such obviously fraudulent methods?”[8]

British science historian Dr. Nicholas Kollerstrom also refuted the Kraków Institute of Forensic Research report, as succinctly summarized by the retired professor of the philosophy of science Dr. James H. Fetzer:

When the Auschwitz museum was confronted with the fact that the innocuous delousing chambers at Auschwitz have blue walls–due to being saturated with blue iron cyanide compounds–but the alleged homicidal gas chambers have not, they commissioned their own chemical research. Instead of testing wall samples for the chemicals that had caused the blue stains, the researchers they commissioned simply excluded those chemicals from their analysis by employing a procedure that could not detect them. They justified this measure with the claim that they did not understand exactly how these compounds could form and that they might therefore be mere artifacts. Researchers who don’t understand what they are investigating have no business becoming involved. In this case, however, it appears to be deliberate. They have deliberately ignored an obvious explanation–that Zyklon B was only used for delousing–which would have remedied their lack of comprehension. As a result of this failure to adhere to the principles of science, they produced a report of no scientific value, which they used to arrive at a predetermined conclusion.[9]

Dr. Arthur Robert Butz writes in regard to the Kraków Institute of Forensic Research report:

The argument, to the extent that it was intelligible enough to be summarized at all, was that they did not understand how the iron-cyanide compounds got to be there, so they decided to ignore them in reaching their conclusions. I don’t understand how the moon got there, so I will ignore all effects associated with it, such as tides. I hope I don’t drown.”[10]

Dr. James Roth

Dr. James Roth testified at the 1988 Ernst Zündel trial that he received samples from Fred Leuchter in his capacity as an Analytical Chemist at Alpha Analytical Laboratories. The purpose of the tests was to determine the total iron and cyanide content in the samples. Dr. Roth testified that the Prussian Blue produced by a reaction of the iron and hydrogen cyanide could penetrate deeply in porous materials such as brick and iron.[11]

Dr. Roth later changed his testimony in a documentary movie titled Mr. Deathproduced by Errol Morris. Dr. Roth states in this movie:

Cyanide is a surface reaction. It’s probably not going to penetrate more than 10 microns. Human hair is 100 microns in diameter. Crush this sample up, I have just diluted that sample 10,000; 100,000 times. If you’re going to go looking for it, you’re going to look on the surface only. There’s no reason to go deep, because it’s not going to be there.[12]

Dr. Nicholas Kollerstrom writes that Dr. Roth’s statements in Mr. Death are wrong:

The 1999 film about Leuchter features an interview with the chemist [Dr. James Roth] who had done the analysis of his wall-samples back in 1988. He had done this “blind,” i.e. with no knowledge of where they had come from, which was correct scientific procedure. During the second Zündel trial in Toronto in 1988 he testified under oath concerning the method used and what Leuchter had sent him. He said back then that hydrogen cyanide can easily penetrate into brick and mortar. But then, when he was interviewed again by Morris for his documentary, he suddenly stated that the results were quite meaningless, because the cyanide could only have soaked a few microns into the brickwork. Wow, that was quite a whopper. Mortar and brickwork are highly porous to hydrogen cyanide, obviously so because the delousing chambers were more or less equally blue inside and out, it had soaked right through. But you can watch him on video explaining this, as if he were confusing brick and mortar with rock. The latter will only absorb cyanide to a few microns of its surface.[13]

Germar Rudolf writes in regard to Dr. Roth’s statements in Mr. Death: “It can be shown that Prof. Dr. James Roth is wrong for the following reasons:

  1. It is a fact that the walls of the disinfestation chambers in Auschwitz, Birkenau, Stutthof, and Majdanek are saturated with cyanide compounds, and this not only superficially, but into the depth of the masonry, as I have demonstrated by taking samples from different depths of the wall. Compare in this regard my mortar and plaster Sample Pairs 9 & 11, 12 & 13, 19a & b…, which were each taken at the same spot but at different depths, as well as Sample 17, taken from below the overlying lime plaster (which is thus similar to 19b). These values prove that hydrogen cyanide can rather easily reach deep layers of plaster and mortar. But even the other samples taken from the surface prove that Prof. Roth’s allegation is wrong: Provided that most of the cyanide detectable today is present in the form of iron cyanide (Iron Blue and other cyanoferrates), as Prof. Roth assumes himself, his thesis would mean that 10% to 75% of the iron content of these samples are located in the upper 10 micrometers thin layer of the samples (0.010 mm), i.e., they are located in less than 1% of the entire sample mass. The rest of the samples, however, would have been massively deprived of iron. How this migration of a major portion of iron to a thin surface layer would have happened is inexplicable to me. Fact is that this simply could not happen.
  2. Furthermore, expert literature is detailed about the following:
    1. Hydrogen cyanide is an extremely mobile chemical compound with physical properties comparable to water…
    2. Water vapor can quite easily penetrate masonry material, and thus also hydrogen cyanide…
    3. Hydrogen cyanide can easily penetrate thick, porous layers like walls…
  3. In addition, it is generally known that cement and lime mortar are highly porous materials, comparable for instance to sponges. In such materials, there does not exist anything like a defined layer of 0.01 mm beyond which hydrogen cyanide could not diffuse, as there can also be no reason, why water could not penetrate a sponge deeper than a millimeter. Steam, for example, which behaves physically comparable to hydrogen cyanide, can very easily penetrate walls.
  4. Finally, the massive discolorations of the outside of the walls of the disinfestation chambers in Birkenau and Stutthof, as shown in this expert report, are clearly visible and conclusive evidence for the fact of how easily hydrogen cyanide and its soluble derivatives can and do penetrate such walls.

As a professor of analytical chemistry, Prof. Roth must know this, so one can only wonder why he spreads such outrageous nonsense. That Prof. Roth is indeed a competent chemist can be seen from what he said during his testimony under oath as an expert witness during the above mentioned Zündel trial..: ‘In porous materials such as brick or mortar, the Prussian blue [hydrogen cyanide] could go fairly deep as long as the surface stayed open, but as the Prussian blue formed, it was possible that it would seal the porous material and stop the penetration.

…It is also revealing that Prof. Roth mentioned during this interview that, if he had known where Leuchter’s samples originated from, his analytical results would have been different. Does that mean that Prof. Roth manipulates his result according to whether or not he likes the origin of certain samples? Such an attitude is exactly the reason why one should never tell an ‘independent’ laboratory about the origin of the samples to be analyzed, simply because ‘independence’ is a very flexible term when it comes to controversial topics. What Prof. Dr. Roth has demonstrated here is only his lack of professional honesty.”[14]

Dr. Richard Green

Dr. Richard Green, who has a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Stanford University, agrees with Germar Rudolf that the Prussian Blue found in the delousing chambers is the result of gassings with hydrogen cyanide. However, Dr. Green offers a possible alternative explanation for why the outside walls of the delousing chambers having blue staining. Green writes: “…the discoloration on the outside of walls [of the delousing chambers], ought to make one consider what possible processes could have taken place outside of the delousing chambers. For example, is it possible that materials that had been soaked with aqueous solutions of HCN were leaned against the outside of the buildings? Not enough is known, but it is premature to conclude that the staining on the outside of buildings owes its origins to processes that took place within those buildings.”[15]

Dr. Green’s speculation is absurd. Why would the Germans lean materials that had been soaked with aqueous solutions of HCN against the outside walls of the delousing chambers? Dr. Green is desperate to find an alternative reason for the heavy blue staining on the outside walls of the delousing chambers.[16]

Germar Rudolf writes in regard to Dr. Green’s speculation:

One major rule of science is that it is impermissible to immunize a theory against refutation, here in particular by inventing untenable auxiliary hypotheses to shore up an otherwise shaky thesis…This is exactly what Dr. Green is doing: coming up with a ludicrous attempt at explaining a fact which does not fit into his theory. Yet instead of fixing his theory, he tries to bend reality.”[17]

Dr. Green also challenges the possibility of formation of any noticeable quantities of Prussian Blue in the alleged homicidal gas chambers. Dr. Green writes: “The difference in total cyanides (Prussian blue + non-Prussian blue) owes to the fact that Prussian blue formed efficiently in the case of the delousing chambers but not in the homicidal gas chambers, and Prussian blue once formed is likely to remain.”[18]

Dr. Green is not able to provide any convincing evidence why Prussian Blue would not form efficiently in the homicidal gas chambers. For example, Dr. Green states that masonry in the alleged homicidal gas chambers has a neutral pH value which does not allow for the formation of cyanide salts. Germar Rudolf writes: “But if that were true, how come huge amounts of cyanides did accumulate in the walls of the disinfestation chambers?”[19]

Rudolf has documented with expert literature on the chemistry of building materials that the cement mortars and concretes used in the alleged homicidal gas chambers are noticeably alkaline for many weeks, months, or even years. These walls would have been very much inclined to accumulate cyanide salts and to form Prussian Blue, even more so than the lime plaster of the disinfestation chambers.[20]

Conclusion

The alleged homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz/Birkenau could not have been used to exterminate hundreds of thousands of people as described in pro-Holocaust literature for numerous reasons: 1) they did not have escape-proof doors and windows; 2) they did not have panic-proof equipment; 3) they did not have technically gastight doors and shutters; 4) they had no provision to quickly release and distribute the poison gas; and 5) they had no effective device to ventilate or otherwise render ineffective the poison gas after the execution.[21]

By contrast, Germany built highly sophisticated and expensive disinfestation facilities at Auschwitz/Birkenau to kill lice and save inmate lives. By one estimate, the SS at Auschwitz spent almost $1 billion in today’s values to bring the typhus epidemics raging there under control.[22] An enormous amount of information exists concerning these German delousing facilities[23], but no similar information exists regarding the alleged homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz/Birkenau.[24]

The roof of the semi-underground Morgue #1 of Crematorium II at Birkenau, which is said to have been the building’s homicidal gas chamber, remains intact to some degree today. Contrary to eyewitness testimony, that roof has no Zyklon-B-introduction holes. This has been acknowledged by pro-Holocaust researcher Robert Jan van Pelt. Since it is impossible to close holes measuring 70 x 70 cm from a concrete roof without leaving clearly visible traces, it is certain that no Zyklon-B-introduction holes ever existed at Crematorium II. Consequently, Zyklon B could not have been introduced through the roof at this morgue as alleged by pro-Holocaust supporters.[25]

As documented in this article, chemists adhering to the orthodox Holocaust narrative have failed to explain why the walls of the delousing facilities at Auschwitz/ Birkenau are permeated with Prussian Blue, while nothing of this sort can be observed in any of the alleged homicidal gas chambers. The only reasonable explanation is that Zyklon B was never used in the alleged homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz/Birkenau. Nicholas Kollerstrom writes:

…for any alleged human gas chamber found in a German World War II labour camp let us merely measure cyanide in the walls: if it’s not there, it didn’thappen.”[26]
