JUDAH BENJAMIN, the Confederacy and the Jewish Slave Trade

“Judah P. Benjamin was known as “the brains of the Confederacy,” its “court Jew,” “the statesman of the Lost Cause,” and even “the Confederate Kissinger. As, successively, Attorney General, Secretary of War and Secretary of State in the Confederate Cabinet, he was President Jefferson Davis’ closest and most trusted adviser.”

– The New Orleans Times Picayunne / ‘The Confederate Kissinger’ / April 20, 2010

Based on Excerpts from Planet Rothchild / Volume 1

When we think of the Confederacy, the big names that automatically come to mind are the three legends carved into the side of Georgia’s Stone Mountain: PresidentJefferson Davis, General Robert E. Lee and General Stonewall Jackson. Significant figures for sure, but in the grander power-scheme of things, these men, including President Davis himself, were outranked by Judah P. Benjamin. The fact that Benjamin’s name is so relatively unknown is, ironically, testament to the awesome “behind-the-scenes” power that he wielded. Unfortunately for the South (and the North), Benjamin’s influence served neither of the Americas. His loyalties were elsewhere – in Rothschild’s London!

Benjamin’s image never made it to Stone Mountain, but his ‘mug-shot’ did appear on Confederate currency and bonds!

 

Before and during the War Between the States, there is Jewish influence supporting both the cause of Northern Unionism and Southern Secession. Louisiana Senator John Slidell is not Jewish (at least not outwardly), but his family ties to elite European Jewry run deep. Slidell’s daughter is engaged to Baron Frederic Erlanger, a French Jewish financier based in Paris. Erlanger helps to fund the Confederacy, gouging the South with usurious interest rates and fees too! (here)

Erlanger’s financing of the South, as confirmed even by contemporray New York Times articles, is directly linked to the House of Rothschild(here)  Pappa-in-Law Slidell would later serve the Confederate States government as foreign diplomat to Great Britain and French Emperor Napoleon III. Now the niece of the influential Senator is married to northern financier August Belmont (Schönberg)– Rothschild’s Jewish boy and Democrat boss supporting the Northern cause, at least at first. After the war, “Confederate” Slidell will make his “Unionist” nephew-in-law Belmont his political protégé.

Also hooked up with Senator Slidell in this tangled North-South-Rothschild  knot of financial-political intrigue is fellow Louisiana Senator Judah Benjamin, the Jewish big-shot who goes on to become the Confederacy’s  Attorney General, then Secretary of War, and then Secretary of State. Through the shadowy fog of 150 years of elapsed history, we can now discern a pattern of divide & conquer, balance of power conspiratorial actions being played upon both sides – and with tragic consequences.

Senator Slidell – His Jewish Son-in-Law Erlanger – His Jewish Northern Nephew-in-Law Belmont, and Jewish fellow Senator Benjamin form an incestuous North-South connection with direct links to the House of Rothschild.

BATTLE OF BULL RUN / SOUTH WINS; BUT FAILS TO FOLLOW-UP WITH ‘KNOCK-OUT BLOW’

If the South is to have any chance of gaining independence, it will have to win early, before the more industrialized and populated North can outlast them. The first battle of the war at Bull Run (Manassas, Virginia) is therefore critical. To make a long story short, the rebels force a Union retreat that soon turns into a full rout. The Battle of Bull Run will soon be referred to by some as “The Battle of Yankee Run”.

The Union Capital, Washington DC, is just miles away and now essentially undefended. It is the South’s for the taking. The capture of DC and other parts north would have delivered a huge psychological blow to the North. Because many northerners aren’t in favor of the war anyway; the capture of DC might very well have ended the war that same year. But instead of finishing the job, someone has decided to spare the Capital – a decision that inflames the Southern press and leads to bitter finger-pointing.

The ‘fall-guy’ for this blunder will be War Secretary Leroy Walker. But in reality, it is the ex-war hero, ex-War Secretary and current Confederate President Jefferson Davis who calls the shots, not the young Walker. But it is also known that Davis relies heavily on the advice from the man whose intelligence and gift-of-gab he is awed by – Jewish Attorney General and former Louisiana Senator Judah Benjamin, referred to by critics as, “Davis’s pet Jew”. (here)

Was it Judah Benjamin, the man so admired by Solomon de Rothschild(here) who may have whispered poison in Davis’s ear, telling him not to take DC and thus blowing the chance to win the game early for the South? And after Walker has been made the scapegoat and fired; who replaces him as War Secretary? None other than Judah Benjamin!

.

1 & 2 – After Bull Run turned into a rout, Washington DC – just 30 miles away – could have been captured. Whose idea was it to halt? That of  Davis — or his trusted “adviser” Benjamin?

3 – Engraved portraits (from 1861) of the South’s chieftains depict Judah Benjamin at the very top (!) with Jefferson Davis in a bigger circle but down lower. Sleazy Slidell with the Rothschild agents for in-laws is to the left of Davis.

Could the new War Secretary Benjamin’s subsequent 1861 interference with the Generals, – acts so controversial that they would force a Congressional investigation – and his bizarre refusal to supply them as requested have been a ploy designed to prolong the war until Rothschild could bury both sides in debt, before sending the Family’s British and French hit-men to divvy up’ America into two spheres?

Establishment historians will later claim that Benjamin’s stubborn defiance of the Generals was due to a lack of supplies in the South. But given how early it was in the war, the claim that supplies were low seems like a cover story. If “lack of supplies” had been the cause of Benjamin’s decisions, Generals Stonewall Jackson and P. G. T. Beauregard would not have had reason to dislike Benjamin as they did.

Such a delaying scenario would fit perfectly with a Rothschild plan to have a longwar, one in which both sides could be indebted and weakened before the British & French can arrive.

http://redpillmedianetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/615.jpghttp://redpillmedianetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/HenryWise.gif

Generals Jackson, Beauregard and Wise all hated Judah Benjamin.

That in mind, let’s take a closer look at the shady Mr. Benjamin. Outwardly, the esteemed Jefferson Davis is the ‘top dog’ of the South – the President of the Confederate States of America. But behind the scenes, Judah Benjamin, with his European connections, ‘gift of gab’ and impressive intellect is, in the grand scheme of things, more powerful than Davis. What the banking agent Alexander Hamilton had been to George Washington, the trusted Benjamin is to Davis, and then some. Like Hamilton, Benjamin was also born a British subject (West Indies)There is simply no exaggerating the influence of Judah Benjamin.

Biographer Eli Evans wrote that Benjamin:

“…achieved greater political power than any other Jew in the nineteenth century — perhaps even in all American history.” 

Historian Charles Curran, in a 1967 issue of ‘History Today” wrote:

“Judah Philip Benjamin must be bracketed with Disraeli, who was his contemporary, as the ablest Jewish politician ever born under the British flag. But his career outdid Disraeli’s in audacity. Benjamin lived three lives in one.”

Judah is a plantation owner, slave-owner and originally a Senator from Louisiana – as was the aforementioned and equally European-connected John Slidell. Although he has no military experience, Benjamin is named the South’s Secretary of War in 1861, after having served as Attorney General for several months. Many in the South will come to loath and mistrust Benjamin.  The great General  Jackson once threatened to resign over conflicts with Benjamin (here– who was commonly referred to in the South as “Mr. Davis’s pet Jew”. (here)

But certain people in Europe had a much higher opinion of Benjamin. In 1861, Salomon de Rothschild – grandson of dynasty founder Mayer Amschel Rothschild – during a visit to Louisiana describes Benjamin as: “the greatest mind in North America.” (here) That pretty much tells us all we need to know about the “southern rebel” Judah Benjamin!

In the fall of 1859,  de Rothschild, the son of Baron James de Rothschild of Paris, had come to the United States as a tourist. His travels in the North and South are recorded in a series of letters to his cousin Nathaniel in London.

Rothschild met with prominent politicians (surely with Benjamin!) and commented  on the issues of the day. His views were “pro-Confederate” and his letters urged cousin Nathan to use the family’s influence to gain the recognition of the Confederacy by the European powers.

http://redpillmedianetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/pes_124004.jpgNathaniel de Rothschild.PNG

Rothschilds for Dixie? – Sing it! – “Oh I wish I were in the land of Matzo…”

Solomon Rothschild (l) urged Nathan Rothschild (who resembles Judah Benjamin) to support the South. 

EXCERPT: “The European states should indeed intercede in order to avoid bloodshed which would be useless and very detrimental to their commerce…..

What is astonishing here, or rather, what is not astonishing, is the high position occupied by our co-religionists, or rather by those who were born into the faith and who, having married Christian women, and without converting, have forgotten the practices of their fathers.

Judah P. Benjamin, the Attorney General of the Confederate States, is perhaps the greatest mind on this continent. H.M. Hyams, the lieutenant governor of Louisiana, Moyse, the Secretary of the Interior, etc. And what is odd, all these men have a Jewish heart and take an interest in me,because I represent the greatest Jewish house in the world.”  (here)

JUDAH BENJAMIN’s EUROPEAN PLOT

In 1862, Benjamin, under intense Congressional pressure, is forced to resign as War Secretary. Jefferson Davis then appoints his beleaguered adviser as the South’s Secretary of State! In this position, Benjamin will work with Slidell and Slidell’s French Jewish son-in-Law Erlanger to secure not just financing from the Rothschild syndicate, but also to induce the direct involvement of Rothschild’s Britain & France into the war, on the side of the South.

A joint British & French entry into the war would have tipped the scales in favor of the South, and ultimately led to two American nations, both under foreign influence. Lincoln and his Secretary of State, William Seward block Judah Benjamin’s scheme by turning to Russia for help.

In a clear message to his old Rothschild-funded foes from the Crimean War, Czar Alexander II stations the better part of his Pacific fleet in San Francisco, and a portion of his western fleet in New York. The British & French instigators of the Crimean War get the message and are forced to back off. Judah Benjamin and the Rothschild financiers are thus thwarted. Together, Alex and Abe have defied the London Bankers and will both pay a heavy price for it.

After the war, in recognition of, or payback for, Russia’s help in keeping Britain & France out of the war; Seward will arrange for the purchase of Alaska from Russia after the war – an act dismissed at the time as “Seward’s Folly”. But now we know the reason for the “folly”.

1- The presence of Russian fleets in San Francisco and New York kept Judah Benjamin’s British and French attack dogs at bay.  

2- Seward’s Folly was Union payback to Russia.

 

OCTOBER, 1864

THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE ACCUSES AUGUST BELMONT AND THE  ROTHSCHILDS OF PLOTTING AGAINST THE UNION

On 16, October 1864 on page 2, The Chicago Tribune reported,

BELMONT’S CONFEDERATE BONDS (Excerpt)

“It is perhaps somewhat flattering to our national pride to know that the Rothschilds, who hold up every despotism in Europe, have concluded that it would be cheaper to buy up one of our political parties (Democrats), and in that way secure the dissolution of the Union, than to have their agents in England and France interfere and fight us.

But Irishmen and Germans have a something, which for brevity we will all a ‘crop,’ and this fact sticks in their crop, that the oppressors of Ireland and Germany, the money kings of Europe, not daring to carry out their first pet project of breaking down this Government by the armed intervention, of England and France.

Let Belmont state over his own signature, if he can that he and Rothschilds have not, directly or indirectly, in their own name, or in that of others, operated in Confederate stocks during this rebellion. Until he can face the music in that style it matters little what tune any of the Copperhead penny whistles may be authorized to blow, as they are very seldom authorized to state anything that is true.”

ALL CONNECTED! 

DID JUDAH BENJAMIN KILL LINCOLN?

In the closing days of the American Civil War, a massive conspiracy to decapitate the U.S. government results in the assassination of President Lincoln by an actor with ties to secret societies. John Wilkes Booth shoots Lincoln in the back of the head as Lincoln and his wife watch a play at Ford’s Theatre. Booth escapes.

On the same night of Lincoln’s murder, Lewis Powell, an associate of Booth, attacks Secretary of State William Seward in his home. Seward is stabbed in the face and neck before other men in the house subdue Powell. Seward’s wife Frances dies two months later from stress caused by seeing her husband nearly killed.

Vice President Johnson and General Ulysses S Grant were also to have been killed. The “conspiracy theorists” of the day point the finger at Judah Benjamin, (here) who burns the official papers of the Confederate Secret Service right about this time. (here) Thanks to Bennie the Burner, the full story of Confederate clandestine services, and most likely the Lincoln assassination, may never be known.

1 & 2: Abe and Alex both paid with their lives for defying the Rothschilds. Judah Benjamin was suspected of engineering the Lincoln assassination.

3 – “Extremes Meet” – British Press mocks Abe and Alexander’s cooperation.

http://redpillmedianetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/614QfuXZkzL._SY344_BO1204203200_.jpghttp://redpillmedianetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/4686.jpg

http://redpillmedianetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/c436fr.jpg

Lincoln’s alliance with the Rothschild family’s most hated enemy, Russia, and his printing of interest-free ‘Greenbacks” to finance the war were big “no-no’s” that got him killed. John Fazio’s ‘Decapitating the Union’ supports the belief of many during that time that Judah Benjamin was the mastermind of the plot.

BENJAMIN BUGS OUT

As the south collapses, Benjamin stays in the home of a Jewish merchant in South Carolina while final surrender negotiations drag on. Here, Benjamin abandons President Davis’s plan to fight on, telling him that the cause is hopeless. When negotiations fail, Benjamin remains part of the group around Davis that moves on with the President.

At one point, Benjamin (under suspicion for involvement in Lincoln’s assassination)tells Davis that he needs to separate from the Presidential party temporarily, and go to the Bahamas to be able to send instructions to foreign agents. He reassures Davis that he will rejoin him in Texas.  According to historian William C. Davis, “the pragmatic Secretary of State almost certainly never had any intention of returning to the South once gone”.  (here)

When he bades Postmaster Reagan goodbye, the Postmaster asks where Benjamin is going. Benjamin replies: “To the farthest place from the United States, if it takes me to the middle of China.” (here)

While other Confederate leaders, including the trusting fool Jefferson Davis, are being jailed and abused, Benjamin arrives in London before traveling to Paris – where his wife and daughter had been sent to live years before the war had even started.  Benjamin then moves back to England and will enjoy a very profitable career and “second life” as an attorney, until his death in 1884. Congressman John Wise, son of Confederate General and Virginia Governor Henry Wise, wrote a highly popular book about the South in the Civil War in 1899, The End of an Era. In it, he stated:

“(Benjamin) had more brains and less heart than any other civic leader in the South … The Confederacy and its collapse were no more to Judah P. Benjamin than last year’s bird’s nest.” (here)

Unfortunately for historians, and fortunately for the Rothschilds, Benjamin, exactly as he had done with papers pertaining to the Confederacy’s secret services in 1865, also burned his personal papers shortly before his death in 1884. 

http://redpillmedianetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/150px-John_S._Wise.jpghttp://redpillmedianetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/51D927WGEWL._SX331_BO1204203200_.jpghttp://redpillmedianetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/judah-benjamin-barristerjpg-ecc88241d379efa5_medium.jpg

1 & 2 – John Wise’s ‘End of an Era’ expresses the true Southern feeling toward the fleeing scoundrel Judah Benjamin, to whom the South was like “last year’s bird’s nest.”

3 – After abandoning his Confederate colleagues and the people of the South, Benjamin the “British” Barrister went on to enjoy a hugely successful 2nd career in Rothschild’s London — where he was a contemporary of Karl Marx and Benjamin Disraeli.

Now that you know the story of “The Confederate Kissinger” — the reason his name is so little known should no longer be a mystery.

Gilad Atzmon Expains the Murder of the West by Identity Politics

Introduction by Paul Craig Roberts

Strange, isn’t it, that one Jew, Gilad Atzmon, understands the dire situation of the Western World far better than does the entirety of the Western intellectual class, including its large Jewish component.

Read this and if you are successful in doing so, that is, not too handicapped by the low level of education to which Western “education” has degenerated, you will understand very much.

It is likely that Identity Politics has put the Western World into a situation from which recovery is impossible. All the rest of the world need do is to wait.

http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/2017/8/15/being-in-virginia-in-time

By Gilad Atzmon
In my recent book Being in Time – a Post Political Manifesto, I pointed out that the West and America in particular have been led into a disastrous Identity (ID) clash. This week in Virginia we saw a glimpse of it.

In the book I argue that the transition from traditional Left ideology into New Left politics can be understood as the aggressive advocacy of sectarian and divisive ideologies. While the old Left made an effort to unite us all: gays, blacks, Jews or Whites into a political struggle against capital, the New Left has managed to divide us into ID sectors. We are trained to speak ‘as a…’: ‘as a Jew,’ ‘as a black,’ ‘as a Lesbian.’ The new left has taught us to identify with our biology, with our gender, sex orientation and our skin colour, as long as it isn’t ‘White’ of course.

In Being in Time, I noted that it was a question of time before White people would also decide to identify with their biology. And this is exactly what we saw in Virginia last weekend.

Tragically, ID politics is a vey dangerous political game. It is designed to pull people apart. It is there to introduce conflict and division. ID politics doesn’t offer a harmonious vision of society as a whole. Quite the opposite, it leads to an increasingly fractured social reality. Take, for instance, the continuous evolution of the LGBT group. It is constantly expanding to include more and more sectarian sexually oriented social subgroupings (LGBTQ, LGBTQAI and even LGBTQIAP ).

In the New Left social reality, we, the people are shoved into ID ghettos that are defined by our biology: skin colour, sexual orientation, the Jewish mother, etc.

Instead of what we need to do: fight together against big money, the bankers, the megacorporations, we fight each other, we learn to hate each other. We even drive our cars over each other.

I am opposed to all forms of ID politics, whether it is White, Black, Jewish, Gender or sex oriented. But, obviously if Jews, Gays and others are entitled to identify with their ‘biology’, white people are entitled to do the same. I think that universalism is what we used to call it when we still cared about intellectual integrity.

The problem created by ID politics is extremely grave. ID politics doesn’t offer a prospect of peace and harmony. Within the context of ID politics, we cannot envisage a peaceful resolution of the current ID clash. Can anyone foresee the LGBT community embracing KKK activists into their notion of ‘diverse society?’ The same can be said about the KKK, are they going to open their gates to cultural Marxists?

ID politics equals ID clash, an irreconcilable conflict with no end, the complete destruction of American and, to a certain extent, Western civilisation.  This may explain why George Soros and his open society are invested in this battle. As long as the working people are fighting each other, no one bothers to challenge the root cause of our current dystopia, namely the banks, global capitalism, wall street, Mammonism and so on.

The remedy is clear. America and the West must, at once, break away from all forms of ID politics. Instead of celebrating that which separates us, we must seek what unites and makes us into one people.  I am advocating a radical spiritual, ideological and metaphysical transition. Whether or not we like to admit it, these moments of unity are often invoked by waves of patriotism, nationalism and religious figures. But they could also be inspired by the spirit of justice, equality, compassion and love.  Neither the New Left or the Alt Right offers any of the above. They are equally invested in Identitarian ideologies. The electoral success of Trump, Corbyn and even Sanders or Le Pen points at a general human fatigue.  Readiness for change is in the air.

The Identitarian Shift & the Primacy of the Symptom
(Being in Time – a Post Political Manifesto  pg. 49)
ID politics manifests itself as a set of group identification strategies. It subdues the ‘I’ in favour of symbolic identifiers: the ring on the appropriate ear, the nose stud, the type of skullcap, the colour of the scarf and so on.

Within the ID political cosmos, newly emerging ‘tribes’ (gays, lesbians, Jews, Blacks, Whites,vegans, etc.) are marched into the desert, led towards an appealing ‘promised land’, where the primacy of the symptom (gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, skin colour etc.) is supposed to evolve into a world in itself. But this liberal utopia is in practice a sectarian and segregated amalgam of ghettos that are blind to each other. It has nothing in common with the promised universal, inclusive cosmos.

‘The personal is political,’ as the common feminists and liberal preachers have disseminated since the 1960s, is a phrase designed to disguise the obvious; the personal is actually the antithesis of the political. It is, in fact, the disparity between the personal and the political that makes humanism into an evolving exchange known as history. Within the Identitarian discourse, the so-called ‘personal’ replaces true and genuine individualism with phony group identification – it suppresses all sense of authenticity, rootedness and belonging, in favour of a symbolism and imaginary collectivism that is supported by rituals and empty soundbites.Why are we willing to subject ourselves to politics based on biology, and who wrote this new theology found in pamphlets and in the growing numbers of ID Studies textbooks? Is there a contemporaneous God? And who created the ‘pillar of cloud’ we are all to follow?

It is clear that elements within the New Left, together with Jewish progressives and liberal intelligentsia, have been at the heart of the formation of the ideological foundation of ID politics. At least traditionally, both Jewish liberals and the Left were associated with opposition to any form of exclusive political agenda based on biology or ethnicity. Yet, one may wonder why does the New Left espouse such an exclusivist, sectarian and biologically driven agenda?

US Senator Warns Of A ‘Powder Keg’ And The ‘Next Charlottesville’ As More Evidence Emerges Hillary And George Soros Are Funding A ‘Domestic Terror Agenda’ To Overthrow America

 

– And Remember, Hillary And Obama Funded ISIS, Too!

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die

‘Racism is a tool of the collectivist. The goal is to dismantle American society‘.

According to this August 14th story over at the Washington Free Beaconfailed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has sent at least $800,000 from her campaign funds to her new political action group according to the Federal Election Commission. Clinton announced her intent to be “part of the resistance” in May with the formation of Onward Together, a political action group that will fund a number of established “resistance” groups that can quickly counter President Trump with direct action and protests.

Soon after the election, Hillary announced her intentions to stay involved with ‘resisting’ President Trump’s agenda and as anybody paying attention to ‘real news’ knows, for many years, she was also part of the efforts being made to arm ‘anti-Assad’ rebels in Syria, many of whom turned out to be the same ISIS terrorists who are now killing people around the world, including Americans. So why would Hillary Clinton send nearly a million dollars to ‘resistance’ groups such as Antifa, a group which many, including the New Jersey Department of Homeland Security, have deemed a ‘domestic terror group’?

Antifa-1.jpg

As Susan Duclos reported on Sunday on ANP, Antifa is planning a nationwide terror attack on November 4th in an attempt to drive President Trump out of office and as with all of the recent ‘Antifa protests’, those paying attention warn we’re now witnessing an ongoing communist attempt to overthrow the duly elected government of the United States. Epoch Times reported recently that there are undeniable links that show ‘Antifa’ has communist origins, including promoting a communist dictatorship in Germany on Soviet Union’s behalf, and labelled all ideologies other than communism as ‘fascism’.

Sound familiar? And while I’m quite sure I’ll be called a ‘Nazi’ or a ‘fascist’ for calling out these antifa frauds, as Dilbert cartoon strip creator and popular blogger Scott Adams recently pointed out, millions of Americans are buying into this ‘everyone who doesn’t agree with me is a fascist hysteria’. However, whether or not they should be labeled as a ‘terrorist group’ shouldn’t even be debatable as they claim in their own methods as also seen in more detail below:

We will gather in the streets and public squares of cities and towns across this country, at first many thousands declaring that this whole regime is illegitimate and that we will not stop until our single demand is met: This Nightmare Must End: the Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!

Our protest must grow day after day and night after night—thousands becoming hundreds of thousands, and then millions—determined to act to put a stop to the grave danger that the Trump/Pence Regime poses to the world by demanding that this whole regime be removed from power.

According to Cornell Law School, the definition of ‘domestic terrorism’ is:

(5) the term “domestic terrorism” means activities that— (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended— (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.

Should Antifa’s threats to use force and violence to remove President Trump be considered domestic terrorism? Over 175,000 people have signed a White House petition to have them declared domestic terrorists and in the 2nd video below, we hear the so-called ‘alt left’ chanting ‘death to America’. Case closed. If anybody had ever made such threats to remove Barack Obama, martial law would have been declared and America would have been locked down. What hypocrites reside within US politics and the mainstream media.

devious_psychopathic_murderer.jpg

We’re warned that what we’re now witnessing is the operational phase of an attempted takedown of the President Trump’s duly elected government, one that the globalists hope will lead to civil war which could very quickly end up facilitating the invasion of the US from within and without and the destruction of America.

While the mainstream media won’t utter a word about Senator John McCain’s KKK ancestry or how he helped to put neo-nazi’s in charge in the Ukraine, helping to push those screaming ‘race’ every chance they get to the breaking point, it’s becoming more and more obvious we’re watching an anti-white, anti-America and hate-driven agenda being pushed by the msm.

And as The Hill recently reported, we’re now witnessing the far left turn their hatred towards cops and the ‘thin blue line’ after many came out, allegedly to ‘peacefully protest’ according to the msm, and threw bottles of urine and stones at officers while carrying signs like the one seen below tweeted by actor James Woods. As Dinesh D’Souza recently reported over at WND, while the msm is reporting upon the rise of fascism on the right, it’s already firmly entrenched on the left as seen exemplified by one elderly woman carrying an American flag in Boston being brutalized.

dem_violence.png

And while those on the left and much of the msm recently rejoiced over the release of Steve Bannon from the White House position he held for 7+ months, such rejoicing was likely akin to those who were sitting in prime seats on the Titanic, right before it went down.

As Gateway Pundit recently reported, with Bannon no longer handcuffed by sitting in such a politically correct position within the White House, we expect with the knowledge he accumulated about ‘America’s enemies within’ that all hell is about to break loose. As Raheem Kassam recently stated, now Bannon knows who the enemies of the American people are. Calling Bannon a literal ‘killing machine’ within the GP story, if we soon see ‘heads a rolling’, we’ll know his ‘nuclear war’ against America’s ‘globalist enemies within’ had begun. As one former Breitbart employee recently said, Bannon’s ‘firing’ is the globalists worst nightmare come true.

We also pray that Steve Bannon has the Hand of God watching over him in the days, weeks and months ahead as we all remember what happened to Andrew Breitbart and it’s clear to much of America that the ‘enemies within’ which America faces now have many of the same names and faces as we faced back when Andrew Breitbart was still alive, tweeting about the likes of John Podesta.

And as anyone paying attention knows, ‘Clinton enemies’ die like flies with a body count stretching well into 2017 that has still never been adequately investigated by anybody other than the independent media and certainly not by law enforcement, some who for 8 years had their ‘commander in chief’ as none other than Bill Clinton himself.

the_killing_machine.jpg

As I stated above, while I’m sure there are some out there who will call me a ‘Nazi’ and claim that I’m against the right to protest for being against the protesting methods of Antifa, anybody who knows me knows how far that is from the truth as I firmly believe that all lawful protest must be peaceful, with Anonymous giving an excellent breakdown of the proper and lawful way to do so in this excellent video called ‘Anonymous Code of Conduct’.

Notice, PEACEFUL protest is highlighted again and again.

Yet a visit to the Facebook page of Antifa seen via screenshot below shows them espousing violence and DISCOURAGING ‘pacifism’ by specifically stating ‘your pacifism will be a liability’. Why does Facebook allow posts such as that, which specifically call for violence to be used against other human beings yet they’ll quickly ban ‘hate speech’?

And since they’re espousing violence, why are Antifa, and the ‘other terrorists’ ISIS, getting a free pass on Facebook, which deletes so-called ‘hate speech’ while allowing terrorist videos and child pornography that had been flagged to stay? Every day, Facebook, Google and YouTube more clearly show their true colors. Language warning on post below.

not_pacifists.png
.

According to this new story over at the Independent, they report that President Trump is only 6 Senate votes away from a possible impeachment by Congress, just the latest ‘pipe dream’ being pushed by the left in attempting to get President Trump out of office by any way that they can. And as we hear in the final video below featuring Amerigeddon producer Gary Heavin and Pastor Rodney Howard Brown, part of the deep state agrees with Missouri Senator Maria Chappelle-Nidal, who sickeningly recently stated that she’d like to see President Trump assassinated.

Will the ‘deep state’ attempt to ‘take out’ President Trump? Trump’s enemies are clearly a confederacy of cowards.

While according to this recent poll from Gallup, President Trump has a job approval rating of below 40%, Gallup also recently determined that Congress’s approval rating is at a ‘below dismal’ 16% proving to us that as much as some Americans dislike President Trump, more than twice as many Americans despise those within the US Congress. .

And as we read in some of the comments left upon the Independent story, if the Congress and their horrid approval rating attempts to impeach President Trump without any crimes or misdemeanors existing to do so lawfully, there will be hell to pay if they try.

With some going so far as warning ‘there’ll be people swinging off trees’, we remind you that we are only reporting what others are saying and strongly condemn unlawful acts of violence being taken by anybody. However, as Republican Senator Ben Sasse from Nebraska recently stated, his constituents are angry and Sasse and many of them feel like violence is coming.

From Senator Sasse’s Facebook post.:

THE NEXT CHARLOTTESVILLE
Over the last week, many Nebraskans have told me some version of this: ‎“There are lots of us here who are ‎scared about where the country is headed. I think more violence is inevitable.”


That much seems obvious. Less expected was where some of them went next.
One of my constituents, a fairly energetic Trump supporter and a middle-aged man, told me:


**”To be clear, I think the alt-Right are a bunch of a**holes.”‎
**”And we should admit that the President has done a bad job getting us through this.”
**But “when the next rounds of violence come, I’ll bet you most of it will come from the left.”
**”And then some folks I know will respond in kind. It’s gonna be a powder-keg.”

Will the US Congress attempt to impeach President Trump, knowing that they have a much lower approval rating than him and the HUGE majority of the American people are sick of them? What we’ve been watching from Congress for many years now is the very reason term limits should be imposed as the American people have been completely sold out.

Between the lunatic left and the RINO’s, who the Intercept basically admitted are ‘one party’, and George Soros and Hillary Clinton, the American people have been sold down the river and as the very same haters attempt to hijack history, former Presidential candidate Patrick Buchanan recent asked “In This Second American Civil War, Whose Side Are You On?”

While we pray it never gets to that point, there’s no doubt which side we are on, the ‘right side’ of history. Truth will always eventually conquer ‘the empire of lies’. As Steve Quayle recently said via SQnote while linking to this story, “civil war plays out before our eyes as our nation’s history, they do despise, ruled by ‘the father of lies’ and funded by George Soros, (Beelzebub?), the ‘lord of the flies'”.

 

Tech companies banishing extremists after Charlottesville

[Ed Note: Antifa has been named a Domestic Terrorist Group, (a George Soros production) by the Department of Homeland Security…yet the Alt-Left Media and Tech Companies, (owned by the the same suspects) have all but declared them the founding fathers of the new American Soviet!]

NEW YORK (AP) — It took bloodshed in Charlottesville to get tech companies to do what civil rights groups have been calling for for years: take a firmer stand against accounts used to promote hate and violence.

In the wake of the deadly clash at a white-nationalist rally last weekend in Virginia, major companies such as Google, Facebook and PayPal are banishing a growing cadre of extremist groups and individuals for violating service terms.

What took so long? For one thing, tech companies have long seen themselves as bastions of free expression.

But the Charlottesville rally seemed to have a sobering effect. It showed how easily technology can be used to organize and finance such events, and how extreme views online can translate into violence offline.

“There is a difference between freedom of speech and what happened in Charlottesville,” said Rashad Robinson, executive director of Color of Change, an online racial justice group. The battle of ideas is “different than people who show up with guns to terrorize communities.”

A SLOW REACTION

Tech companies are in a bind. On one hand, they want to be open to as many people as possible so they can show them ads or provide rides, apartments or financial services. On the other hand, some of these users turn out to be white supremacists, terrorists or child molesters.

Keegan Hankes, analyst at the Southern Poverty Law Center’s intelligence project, said his group has been trying for more than a year to get Facebook and PayPal to shut down these accounts. Even now, he said, the two companies are taking action only in the most extreme cases.

“They have policies against violence, racism, harassment,” said Hankes, whose center monitors hate groups and extremism. “The problem is that there has been no enforcement.”

Case in point: The neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer has been around since 2013. But it wasn’t effectively kicked off the internet until it mocked the woman killed while protesting the white nationalists in Charlottesville.

SHIFTING LINE

PayPal said groups that advocate racist views have no place on its service, but added that there is a “fine line” when it comes to balancing freedom of expression with taking a stand against violent extremism.

Other companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google struggle with the same balancing act. The fine line is constantly moving and being tested.

Ahead of the rally, Airbnb barred housing rentals to people it believed were traveling to participate. Before and after Charlottesville, PayPal cut off payments to groups that promote hate and violence. GoDaddy and Google yanked the domain name for Daily Stormer following the rally. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are removing known hate groups from their services, and the music streaming service Spotify dropped what it considers hate bands.

“Companies are trying to figure out what the right thing is to do and how to do it,” said Steve Jones, a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago who focuses on communication technology. What happens from here is “partly going to depend on the individual leadership at these companies and company culture — and probably resources, too.”

CAT AND MOUSE

While traditional brands such as Tiki had no way of knowing that their torches were being bought for the rally, tech companies have tools to identify and ban people with extremist views.

That’s thanks to the troves of data they store on people and to their ability to easily switch off access to users. Airbnb users can link to social media profiles, and the company said it used its existing background checks and “input from the community” to identify users who didn’t align with its standards.

Yet these services also allow for anonymity, which makes their jobs more difficult. Banned people can sign up again with a different email address, something they can easily obtain anonymously.

Facebook spokeswoman Ruchika Budhraja said hate groups also know the site’s policies and try to keep things just benign enough to ensure they are not in violation.

For instance, the event page for the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville looked fairly innocuous. Budhraja said there was nothing on the page that would suggest it was created by a hate organization. It has since been removed.

Facebook’s technology is designed to automatically flag posts that are on the absolute extreme and clearly violate the company’s policies. They are sometimes removed before users can even see them. What Facebook can’t leave to automation are posts, events and groups in that ever-growing gray area.

THE BROADEST REACH

The First Amendment offers hate groups a lot of speech protection, but it applies only to government and public settings. A private company is typically free to set its own standards.

Christopher Cantwell, a self-described white nationalist who has been labeled an extremist by the Southern Poverty Law Center, said he was banned from Facebook, Instagram and PayPal because the companies are trying to silence him for his views.

“Everybody is going through extraordinary lengths to make sure we are not heard,” Cantwell told The Associated Press .

Even Cloudflare, a security company that prides itself on providing services regardless of their content, terminated Daily Stormer on Wednesday. This appears to be the site’s final blow.

Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin said in an email to the AP that these private companies are “de facto monopolies and oligopolies” and should be regulated as “critical infrastructure.”

The Daily Stormer and other banned groups could move to darker corners of the web, where extreme views are welcome. But this won’t help with recruitment and won’t allow them to disseminate their views as broadly as they could on Facebook or Twitter.

“These are the platforms everyone is using,” Hankes said. “They don’t want to be pushed to the margins because they want influence.”

Because of that, the industry’s efforts might just be a game of whack-a-mole, with extremist views returning, perhaps in different guises, once public outrage dies down.

Parents Catch FBI In Plot To Force Mentally Ill Son To Be A Right Wing Terrorist

By Matt Agorist

It’s become a near-weekly occurrence. Somewhere in some state, the FBI will announce that they’ve foiled yet another terrorist plot and saved lives. However, as the data shows, the majority of these cases involve psychologically diminished patsies who’ve been entirely groomed, armed, and entrapped by FBI agents. Simply put, the FBI manufactures terror threats and then takes credit for stopping them.

While many of these cases have garnered attention and been exposed in the alternative media, a recent case out of Oklahoma sets a new low for FBI and exposes how insidious these plots can be.

Through the hundreds of ‘foiled terror plots’ the FBI has ‘busted’ over the years, many of them have been focused on people of Middle Eastern descent or people associated with ISIS or Al Qaeda. This time, in the case of Jerry Drake Varnell, the 23-year-old diagnosed schizophrenic, accused of attempting to bomb a bank, the FBI fomented terror from a right wing dialogue.

In a June meeting with the agent, according to FBI documents, Varnell described himself as a believer in “Three Percenter” ideology, a right wing group claiming to be committed to standing against and exposing corruption and injustice.

According to federal documents, Varnell drove what he believed was a stolen van containing a 1,000-pound ammonium nitrate bomb on Saturday morning to blow up an Oklahoma City bank. Vile, indeed.

However, if we backtrack just a bit, to when the FBI began grooming their would-be right wing militia terrorist, the vileness comes directly from the government.

“The FBI knew he was schizophrenic,” Varnell’s parents declared on Wednesday in an open letter bravely published by NewsOK.

Underneath his condition, he is a sweet-hearted person and we are extremely shocked that this event has happened. However, what truly has us flabbergasted is the fact that the FBI knew he was schizophrenic.The State of Oklahoma found him mentally incompetent and we, his parents have legal guardianship over him by the Court. These documents are sealed from the public, which is why no news media outlet has been able to obtain them. The FBI clearly knew that he was schizophrenic because they have gathered every ounce of information on him.

Yet they knowingly continued to groom him, despite the clear immoral implications.

When they began grooming him, according to the family, the FBI knew that Varnell was declared mentally unfit to live by himself and that he was a paranoid schizophrenic. Without their criminal informant and the FBI tactics playing mind games with this vulnerable man, the idea of him committing an act of terror would have likely never materialized.

What the public should be looking at is the fact that the FBI gave our son the means to make this happen. He has no job, no money, no vehicle, and no driver’s license, due to the fact that he is schizophrenic and we; his parents do everything we can possible to keep him safe and functional…..  He has suffered through countless serious full-blown schizophrenic delusional episodes and he has been put in numerous mental hospitals since he was 16 years old. The FBI came and picked him up from our home, they gave him a vehicle, gave him a fake bomb, and every means to make this happen none of which he had access to on his own. 

The parents noted that during the setup they suspected something was going on and Jerry’s father told the informant to stay away from their son. However, according to the parents, the informant “continued to sneak onto our residence. The FBI paid him to continue this operation and I believe they have cleared his criminal record.”

Because they knew Varnell had severe mental disabilities, the FBI should have had stopped their plans to do this and immediately sought an option of hospitalization. However, they pressed on.

The FBI should have filed conspiracy on our son and had him committed to a mental institution. They should not have aided and abetted a paranoid schizophrenic to commit this act. There are many more facts that I will not make public that will support my son and the disturbing acts made by the FBI.

I realize that many will say my son could have found another person to commit this act. Yet, any person that has access to the materials and the state of mind necessary to bomb a building would not have any need for a schizophrenic who has no resources to contribute.

Clifford and Melonie Varnell, Jerry’s parents make a powerful point. No one — other than the FBI — would’ve attempted to get a schizophrenic man with nothing to contribute to do their bidding as it would most likely be a futile effort — unless you are the FBI looking for an easy patsy to keep fear alive.

David Steele, a 20-year Marine Corps intelligence officer, the second-highest-ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine services case officer, had this to say about these most unscrupulous operations:

Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.

Indeed, we’ve become a lunatic asylum.

WAKE UP, people! Alt-Left and Alt-Right are run by the same forces… the goal is “divide and conquer”

Image: WAKE UP, people! Alt-Left and Alt-Right are run by the same forces… the goal is “divide and conquer”

(Natural News) We’re all being played. The so-called “Alt-Left” and “Alt-Right” are all rooted in elaborate, deadly street theater being played out on the national stage with real consequences (such as killing innocents on camera).

If you have been swept up into the engineered hatred of all this, you’ve been suckered by the globalists who are running this entire show. In truth, most people in America aren’t filled with hatred for others of different skin color, races, religions or genders. Most people just want to get along. But the goal of the Alt-Left and Alt-Right movements is to divide and conquer America through hatred and media lies that push false narratives for political gain.

As evidence of all this, note that Jason Kessler, the organizer of the Charlottesville event, actually worked for Obama and the Occupy movement just a few months ago. This man is a professional activist and social engineer who whips up big events on the world’s stage in order to achieve highly visible outcomes that can be seized by the mainstream media to condemn Trump supporters by labeling them all racists and “KKK.”

Much of the organized Left is funded either directly or indirectly by George Soros, the same radical left-wing operator who undercut freedom and liberty across numerous European countries. He’s the funding source behind ThinkProgress and 200+ other radical left-wing groups that constantly lie, defame and smear conservatives in order to sow hatred and division. Radical Alt-Right groups, similarly, are led by operatives who are very often working directly for the CIA and FBI. Nearly all the KKK racism you see on the news is contrived, elaborate theater carried out by these operatives. Some of the racism is real, however, as actual racists follow the “leadership” of the contrived KKK social engineers who are merely acting. (The KKK, by the way, was founded and run by Democrats.)

Case in point: Read this article: Racism RIGGED by A&E: KKK “documentary” was entirely scripted; A&E provided Nazi flags and wooden crosses to burn; actors paid cash to say “ni@@er” on camera which reminds us:

The KKK leaders who were interviewed by Variety detailed how they were wooed with promises the program would capture the truth about life in the organization; encouraged not to file taxes on cash payments for agreeing to participate in the filming; presented with pre-scripted fictional story scenarios; instructed what to say on camera; asked to misrepresent their actual identities, motivations and relationships with others, and re-enacted camera shoots repeatedly until the production team was satisfied.

The production team even paid for material and equipment to construct and burn wooden crosses and Nazi swastikas, according to multiple sources including Richard Nichols, who is one of the featured subjects of the documentary series as the Grand Dragon of a KKK cell known as the Tennessee White Knights of the Invisible Empire. He also said he was encouraged by a producer to use the epithet “nigger” in interviews.

“We were betrayed by the producers and A&E,” said Nichols. “It was all made up—pretty much everything we said and did was fake and because that is what the film people told us to do and say.”

Meanwhile, the media is using the hatred and division to try to dethrone President Trump, and Antifa is using the chaos to push for its goal to terrorize America while overthrowing the government and installing communism. This has all happened before in Mao’s communist Cultural Revolution that mass-murdered liberty-oriented Chinese citizens to install a communist dictatorship that continues to this day.

Don’t be suckered into the emotional puppetry. You are all being played by the powers that be. You are nothing more than a pawn in their script. I say #ExitTheScript and rise above the programmed hatred and media lies that are attempting to divide and conquer America.

Neocons Leverage Trump-Hate for More Wars…

– Consortium News Exclusive: The enactment of new sanctions against Russia and Iran – with the support of nearly all Democrats and Republicans in Congress – shows how the warmongering neocons again have come out on top, reports Robert Parry.

By Robert Parry

A savvy Washington observer once told me that the political reality about the neoconservatives is that they alone couldn’t win you a single precinct in the United States. But both Republicans and Democrats still line up to gain neocon support or at least neocon acceptance.

A scene from “Dr. Strangelove,” in which the bomber pilot (played by actor Slim Pickens) rides a nuclear bomb to its target in the Soviet Union.

Part of the reason for this paradox is the degree of dominance that the neoconservatives have established in the national news media – as op-ed writers and TV commentators – and the neocon ties to the Israel Lobby that is famous for showering contributions on favored politicians and on the opponents of those not favored.

Since the neocons’ emergence as big-time foreign policy players in the Reagan administration, they also have demonstrated extraordinary resilience, receiving a steady flow of money often through U.S. government-funded grants from organizations such as the National Endowment for Democracy and through donations from military contractors to hawkish neocon think tanks.

But neocons’ most astonishing success over the past year may have been how they have pulled liberals and even some progressives into the neocon strategies for war and more war, largely by exploiting the Left’s disgust with President Trump.

People who would normally favor international cooperation toward peaceful resolution of conflicts have joined the neocons in ratcheting up global tensions and making progress toward peace far more difficult.

The provocative “Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act,” which imposes sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea while tying President Trump’s hands in removing those penalties, passed the Congress without a single Democrat voting no.

The only dissenting votes came from three Republican House members – Justin Amash of Michigan, Jimmy Duncan of Tennessee, and Thomas Massie of Kentucky – and from Republican Rand Paul of Kentucky and Independent Bernie Sanders of Vermont in the Senate.

In other words, every Democrat present for the vote adopted the neocon position of escalating tensions with Russia and Iran. The new sanctions appear to close off hopes for a détente with Russia and may torpedo the nuclear agreement with Iran, which would put the bomb-bomb-bomb option back on the table just where the neocons want it.

The Putin Obstacle

As for Russia, the neocons have viewed President Vladimir Putin as a major obstacle to their plans at least since 2013 when he helped President Obama come up with a compromise with Syria that averted a U.S. military strike over dubious claims that the Syrian military was responsible for a sarin gas attack outside Damascus on Aug. 21, 2013.

Subsequent evidence indicated that the sarin attack most likely was a provocation by Al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate to trick the U.S. military into entering the war on Al Qaeda’s side.

While you might wonder why the U.S. government would even think about taking actions that would benefit Al Qaeda, which lured the U.S. into this Mideast quagmire in the first place by attacking on 9/11, the answer is that Israel and the neocons – along with Saudi Arabia and other Sunni-governed states – favored an Al Qaeda victory if that was what was needed to shatter the so-called “Shiite crescent,” anchored in Iran and reaching through Syria to Lebanon.

Many neocons are, in effect, America’s Israeli agents and – since Israel is now allied with Saudi Arabia and the Sunni Gulf states versus Iran – the neocons exercise their media/political influence to rationalize U.S. military strikes against Iran’s regional allies, i.e., Syria’s secular government of Bashar al-Assad.

For his part, Putin compounded his offense to the neocons by facilitating Obama’s negotiations with Iran that imposed strict constraints on Iran’s actions toward development of a nuclear bomb and took U.S. war against Iran off the table. The neocons, Israel and Saudi Arabia wanted the U.S. military to lead a bombing campaign against Iran with the hope of crippling their regional adversary and possibly even achieving “regime change” in Tehran.

Punishing Russia

It was in that time frame that NED’s neocon President Carl Gershman identified Ukraine as the “biggest prize” and an important step toward the even bigger prize of removing Putin in Russia.

Former Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs Victoria Nuland, who pushed for the Ukraine coup and helped pick the post-coup leaders.

Other U.S. government neocons, including Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs Victoria Nuland and Sen. John McCain, delivered the Ukraine “prize” by supporting the Feb. 22, 2014 coup that overthrew the elected government of Ukraine and unleashed anti-Russian nationalists (including neo-Nazis) who began killing ethnic Russians in the south and east near Russia’s border.

When Putin responded by allowing Crimeans to vote on secession from Ukraine and reunification with Russia, the West – and especially the neocon-dominated mainstream media – denounced the move as a “Russian invasion.” Covertly, the Russians also helped ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine who defied the coup regime in Kiev and faced annihilation from Ukrainian military forces, including the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion, which literally displayed Swastikas and SS symbols. Putin’s assistance to these embattled ethnic Russian Ukrainians became “Russian aggression.”

Many U.S. pundits and journalists – in the conservative, centrist and liberal media – were swept up by the various hysterias over Syria, Iran and Russia – much as they had been a decade earlier around the Iraq-WMD frenzy and the “responsibility to protect” (or R2P) argument for the violent “regime change” in Libya in 2011. In all these cases, the public debate was saturated with U.S. government and neocon propaganda, much of it false.

But it worked. For instance, the neocons and their liberal-interventionist sidekicks achieved extraordinary success in seducing many American “peace activists” to support the “regime change” war in Syria by sending sympathetic victims of the Syrian government on speaking tours.

Meanwhile, the major U.S. media essentially flacked for “moderate” Syrian rebels who just happened to be fighting alongside Al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate and sharing their powerful U.S.-supplied weapons with the jihadists, all the better to kill Syrian soldiers trying to protect the secular government in Damascus.

Successful Propaganda

As part of this propaganda process, the jihadists’ P.R. adjunct, known as the White Helmets, phoned in anti-government atrocity stories to eager and credulous Western journalists who didn’t dare visit the Al Qaeda-controlled zones for fear of being beheaded.

A heart-rending propaganda image designed to justify a major U.S. military operation inside Syria against the Syrian military.

Still, whenever the White Helmets or other “activists” accused the Syrian government of some unlikely chemical attack, the information was treated as gospel. When United Nations investigators, who were under enormous pressure to confirm the propaganda tales beloved in the West, uncovered evidence that one of the alleged chlorine attacks was staged by the jihadists, the mainstream U.S. media politely looked the other way and continued to treat the chemical-weapons stories as credible.

Historian and journalist Stephen Kinzer has said, “Coverage of the Syrian war will be remembered as one of the most shameful episodes in the history of the American press.”

But all these successes in the neocons’ “perception management” operations pale when compared to what the neocons have accomplished since Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton last November.

Fueled by the shock and disgust over the egotistical self-proclaimed pussy-grabber ascending to the highest office in the land, many Americans looked for both an excuse for explaining the outcome and a strategy for removing Trump as quickly as possible. The answer to both concerns became: blame Russia.

The evidence that Russia had “hacked our democracy” was very thin – some private outfit called Crowdstrike found Cyrillic lettering and a reference to the founder of the Soviet KGB in some of the metadata – but that “incriminating evidence” contradicted Crowdstrike’s own notion of a crack Russian hacking operation that was almost impossible to trace.

So, even though the FBI failed to secure the Democratic National Committee’s computers so the government could do its own forensic analysis, President Obama assigned his intelligence chiefs, CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, to come up with an assessment that could be used to blame Trump’s victory on “Russian meddling.” Obama, of course, shared the revulsion over Trump’s victory, since the real-estate mogul/reality-TV star had famously launched his own political career by spreading the lie that Obama was born in Kenya.

‘Hand-Picked’ Analysts

According to Clapper’s later congressional testimony, the analysts for this job were “hand-picked” from the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency and assigned to produce an “assessment” before Obama left office. Their Jan. 6 report was remarkable in its lack of evidence and the analysts themselves admitted that it fell far short of establishing anything as fact. It amounted to a continuation of the “trust us” approach that had dominated the anti-Russia themes for years.

Much of the thin report focused on complaints about Russia’s RT network for covering the Occupy Wall Street protests and sponsoring a 2012 debate for third-party presidential candidates who had been excluded from the Democratic-Republican debates between President Obama and former Gov. Mitt Romney.

The absurdity of citing such examples in which RT contributed to the public debate in America as proof of Russia attacking American democracy should have been apparent to everyone, but the Russia-gate stampede had begun and so instead of ridiculing the Jan. 6 report as an insult to reason, its shaky Russia-did-it conclusions were embraced as unassailable Truth, buttressed by the false claim that the assessment represented the consensus view of all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies.

So, for instance, we get the internal contradictions of a Friday column by Washington Post columnist David Ignatius who starts off by making a legitimate point about Washington groupthink.

“When all right-thinking people in the nation’s capital seem to agree on something – as has been the case recently with legislation imposing new sanctions on Russia – that may be a warning that the debate has veered into an unthinking herd mentality,” Ignatius wrote as he questioned the wisdom of overusing sanctions and tying the President’s hands on when to remove sanctions.

Lost Logic

But Ignatius failed to follow his own logic when it came to the core groupthink about Russia “meddling” in the U.S. election. Despite the thinness of the evidence, the certainty about Russia’s guilt is now shared by “all right-thinking people” in Washington, who agree that this point is beyond dispute despite the denials from both WikiLeaks, which published the purloined Democratic emails, and the Russian government.

Russian President Vladimir Putin meets with U.S. President Donald Trump at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, on July 7, 2017. (Screen shot from Whitehouse.gov)

Ignatius seemed nervous that his mild deviation from the conventional wisdom about the sanctions bill might risk his standing with the Establishment, so he added:

“Don’t misunderstand me. In questioning congressional review of sanctions, I’m not excusing Trump’s behavior. His non-response to Russia’s well-documented meddling in the 2016 presidential election has been outrageous.”

However, as usual for the U.S. mainstream media, Ignatius doesn’t cite any of those documents. Presumably, he’s referring to the Jan. 6 assessment, which itself contained no real evidence to support its opinion that Russia hacked into Democratic emails and gave them to WikiLeaks for distribution.

Just because a lot of Important People keep repeating the same allegation doesn’t make the allegation true or “well-documented.” And skepticism should be raised even higher when there is a clear political motive for pushing a falsehood as truth, as we should have learned from President George W. Bush’s Iraq-WMD fallacies and from President Barack Obama’s wild exaggerations about the need to intervene in Libya to prevent a massacre of civilians.

But Washington neocons always start with a leg up because of their easy access to the editorial pages of The New York Times and Washington Post as well as their speed-dial relationships with producers at CNN and other cable outlets.

Yet, the neocons have achieved perhaps their greatest success by merging Cold War Russo-phobia with the Trump Derangement Syndrome to enlist liberals and even progressives into the neocon drive for more “regime change” wars.

There can be no doubt that the escalation of sanctions against Russia and Iran will have the effect of escalating geopolitical tensions with those two important countries and making war, even nuclear war, more likely.

In Iran, hardliners are already telling President Hassan Rouhani, “We told you so” that the U.S. government can’t be trusted in its promise to remove – not increase – sanctions in compliance with the nuclear agreement.

And, Putin, who is actually one of the more pro-Western leaders in Russia, faces attacks from his own hardliners who view him as naïve in thinking that Russia would ever be accepted by the West.

Even relative Kremlin moderates such as Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, are citing Trump’s tail-between-his-legs signing of the sanctions bill as proof that the U.S. establishment has blocked any hope for a détente between Washington and Moscow.

In other words, the prospects for advancing the neocon agenda of more “regime change” wars and coups have grown – and the neocons can claim as their allies virtually the entire Democratic Party hierarchy which is so eager to appease its angry #Resistance base that even the heightened risk of nuclear war is being ignored.

Must armed citizens enforce the law and end the tyranny of their elected representatives?

What is the citizenry to do when the national government will not enforce the laws and has abandoned any intention of maintaining the rule of law and the equality of all Americans before the law?

On 3 August 2017, the media reported Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury to investigate the already debunked charge that the Trump campaign worked with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton. In doing so, Mueller has established himself as a stinking offense to the idea of fairness and equality before the law. Mueller must have nearly a dozen conflicts of interests, any one of which should terminate his status as the special counsel. He has staffed his organization with Democratic Party-aligned attorneys, and  is reported to have coached witnesses, including James Comey and Andrew McCabe, on how to testify when the time comes. As I understand them, the statutes governing a special council’s conduct requires Mueller to immediately step down because of his personal conflicts of interest, which have turned this investigation into something of which the producers of Stalin’s show trials would be proud.

Notwithstanding this fact, both parties in Congress are working together to try to pass a piece of bipartisan legislation that will protect Mueller by giving him an appeal process if he is fired for ignoring the law pertinent to his position and/or his numerous conflicts of interest. In addition, Mueller’s empaneling of a grand jury is obviously the act of a dastardly coward, which is meant to throw another obstacle in the path of executing the law and ordering his dismissal. Mueller is a disgrace to the legal profession — if that is possible –and the almost complete lack of any criticism of Mueller from within his peers surely speaks to their inherent lawlessness and political partisanship.

Now, if the lynch mob Mueller is running was the only abuse of the law that is now apparent to the citizenry, patience might be the citizens’ best response. It could be used as yet another chance for Americans to see how resolutely the governing elite ignores the law in their pursuit of power and lucre; beneficially augment their hatred for politicians; and motivate them to go to the gun shop and purchase a few hundred additional rounds of ammunition. But the time for such patience is just about past.

Americans have been extraordinarily patient in waiting for the national government to enforce the republic’s laws. Citizens have seen the Clintons rape, lie, commit espionage, murder, and sell American interests to Russia and other foreigners for personal gain. They have seen Obama illegally divert money from Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac to prop up a medical care system that was intended to fail so as to produce a medical system that would be administered by bureaucrats like those who sentenced Charlie Gard to death and gloated as he lay dying. Americans also saw Obama alter congressional legislation without the approval of Congress; indeed, without the supine Congress even effectively objecting to that impeachable act.  They also saw Obama and Eric Holder refuse to prosecute Black Panthers after they intimidated voters; fail to investigate IRS officials who used their power to obstruct the growth of the conservative political movement; and facilitate the illegal entry of aliens, criminals, and terrorists into the United States. In their spare time, Obama and Clinton passed weapons to Mexican narco-traffickers who later used one of them to kill a U.S. Border Patrol officer.

More recently, they have learned that  Obama and a still growing number of the senior officials in his administration used the power and talents of the US intelligence community to identify (unmask) their political opponents and intercept their conversations. Obama, Holder, Susan Rice — whose security clearances H.R. McMaster is said to have continued, John Brennan, Ben Rhodes, James Clapper, Loretta Lynch, and Samantha Power are all indictable for the manner in which they deliberately and illegally abused their power for political gain; have corrupted the U.S. political system; and have undermined the incoming Trump administration they detested. There also is the authoritarian and promoted-beyond-their competency traitors like Brennan-the-communist, Clapper-the perjurer, and the bloated buffoon Al Gore publicly encouraging a coup against a legitimately elected president, while, at the same time, the Democratic vermin who masquerade as journalists, actors, academics, and comedians call for the death of the president. Finally, there is an espionage ring of Pakistanis — who appear to have drained an ocean of security-related data from congressional computers and sold it to other nations — that was hired, overpaid, and protected by Democratic representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose apparently deliberate crimes are now being investigated by her brother.

Likewise, Americans have seen war-mongering cretins like Senators McCain and Graham work to involve the republic in other peoples’ wars, or, if none were available, to send U.S. forces to intervene in a country irrelevant to the republic’s interests and start one of their own. They also have experienced the obvious but still extraordinary fact that nearly all of our presidents, senators, and representatives have been monetarily suborned by the Israel-adoring, Jewish-American community, and the media it controls and directs, to shamelessly dance a jig to whatever tune the disloyal Israel-Firsters call. In recent months, this reality has included their extortion of $38 billion of U.S. taxpayer dollars for Israel, which is a premier leach-state preying on the American treasury in the company of such other big-league leaches as NATO, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Egypt.

There also is a pending, 1st Amendment-killing, bipartisan bill in Congress that bans Americans from economically boycotting Israel or even advocating that action. If it becomes law, it will penalize those who ignore the law’s elimination of free speech with a “minimum civil penalty of $250,000 and a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in prison”. (1) (NB: Readers will recall George III did not imprison Americans for boycotting British goods, as U.S. senators and representatives are now eager to do to their fellow citizens.)  Finally, the Republican establishment and its congressional contingent sat like silent and useless asses for eight years while Obama shredded the constitution, facilitated the entry of criminal aliens who murdered, raped, and otherwise assaulted U.S. citizens, and launched wars that completed the globalization of Islamist insurgency. Indeed, so stupid are the Republicans that they watched Obama, after the Russian hacking story broke, display a laser-like focus on repeatedly assuring Americans that Russia had not tampered with voting machines. He obviously did so because he and his advisers did not want a thorough examination of U.S. voting machines because the inspectors would have found a large number of them rigged for Hillary Clinton by the Democratic Party and George Soros.

Patience, it is said, is a blessing, but, in this case, much more than an additional bit of patience will kill the republic. Americans have watched for far too long the lawlessness of both the bipartisan governing elite and the absolute unwillingness of their elected representatives to enforce and abide by the law. As patience runs out, the question becomes what to do?

Do Americans sit back as if they are addled and neutered cattle — like the British, French, Germans, and Canadians — and let both parties continue to do as they will, bankrupting the country; eradicating Christianity; destroying American culture, history, and nationalism; starting more wars to kill and maim their children; and deliberately create a mongrel population of peasants that is devoid of thinking, self-sufficient, liberty-loving adults and is dominated by the illiterate, non-English-speaking, and government-worshiping scum of Third World?

Or, do citizens perform their duty as Mr. Jefferson, the other founders, and their 2nd Amendment defined it, and risk all in an effort to slay the hardening tyranny and its champions, a tyranny that seems to be the overriding goal of most members of both parties, their prized, pampered, favored, and often deviant minorities, the media, the lawyers, and the academy?

Perhaps now, more than ever before, the decision of whether the republic is to survive must not be left to a corrupt, lawless, and effeminate national government and its acolytes. This decision must be grasped from them by an armed citizenry that is ready, when the time comes, to administer quick and decisive justice to those who have knowingly brought the republic to this lawless and utterly intolerable pass.

North Carolina’s James Iredell, a too-little-known member of the Founding fraternity, wrote an essay in 1775 — that is,before Jefferson’s Declaration — called “To the Inhabitants of Great Britain and Principles of an American Whig.” In the essay, Iredell stated that

government being only the means of securing freedom and happiness to the people, whenever it deviates from this end, and their freedom and happiness are in great danger of being irrevocably lost, the government is no longer entitled to their allegiance, the only consideration for which it could be justly claimed or honorably pledged being basely and tyrannically withheld.” (2)

Iredell reviewed the totality of the baseness and tyrannical intent contained in the Crown’s policies and actions toward British North Americans, and concluded that the time was fast approaching when a  rebellion by His Majesty’s subjects would be required if English liberties were to be restored. All honor to Iredell for his words and courage, but his generation of Americans did not experience anything close to the tyranny and baseness that today’s citizenry has endured for decades at the hands of their lawless bipartisan governing elite and the party establishments they have created.

What to do citizens do now?  Well, stockpile additional ammunition and give Trump a little more time and see if all of the above named enemies of the republic are indicted. While waiting, it seems not only appropriate but just, for the deplorables to begin to draft lists of those who can be properly called the “expendables”. Start with those named above — if they are not indicted — and then flesh out this list of the lawless, globalist, and corrupt with others who stand out so clearly as the enemies of the rule of law and the concept of equality before the law. We all can pray that the citizenry does not have undertake its constitutional duty of rebellion to destroy tyranny, but that prayer may not be answered without a fight.

This is fair enough. After all, God helps those who both pray and help themselves. Risking life, limb, wealth, and kin to eliminate this plague of expendables — as the Founders intended, if the government they created became a tyranny — seems a necessity based on the duties that citizens owe to those who gave them this republic; to themselves, their families, and their countrymen; and to their posterity. “The liberties of our Country, the freedom of our civil constitution are worth defending at all hazards,” Samuel Adams wrote in late 1771,

And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have receiv’d them as a fair Inheritance from our worthy Ancestors: They purchas’d them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood; and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle; or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men. Of the latter we are in most danger at present: Let us therefore be aware of it.

Let us contemplate our forefathers and posterity; and resolve to maintain the rights bequeath’d to us from the former, for the sake of the latter. — Instead of sitting down satisfied with the efforts we have already made, which is the wish of our enemies, the necessity of the times, more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude, and perseverance. Let us remember that “if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom.” It is a very serious consideration, which should deeply impress our minds, that millions yet unborn may be the miserable sharers of the event. (3)

It is not at all surprising that words written in 1771 to motivate resistance to tyranny can be just as pertinent, inspiring, and instructive in fighting tyranny in 2017.  More evidence, I suppose, that human nature, and the politics it produces, never change for the better, and so tyranny is always just around the corner, ready to enslave those who have neither studied nor learned from history’s relentless repetitiveness.

Behold, A Pale Horse: Its Rider Is Named Neocon And Hell Follows Him

Glenn Greenwald finds the implications of the reunion of the Democratic Party with the neoconservatives to be “profound and long-term.” Essentially, it means more expensive wars for Americans who lack health care and pensions, leading to direct military confrontation between the US and Russia and China, which will mean the end of the world. As the Rubio, McCain, Lindsey Graham wing of the Republican Party is also united with the neoconservatives, there is no existing political force, excepting the Bernie Sanders part of the Democratic Party, to counter the neoconservative war agenda.

As Greenwald writes: “Neocons have done far more damage to the U.S., and the world, than any other single group — by a good margin. They were the architects of the invasion of Iraq and the lies that accompanied it, the worldwide torture regime instituted after 9/11, and the general political climate that equated dissent with treason.

“With the full-scale discrediting and collapse of the Bush presidency, these war-loving neocons found themselves marginalized, without any constituency in either party. They were radioactive, confined to speaking at extremist conferences and working with fringe organizations.

“All of that has changed, thanks to the eagerness of Democrats to embrace them, form alliances with them, and thus rehabilitate their reputations and resurrect their power and influence. That leading Democratic Party foreign policy officials are willing to form new Beltway advocacy groups in collaboration with Bill Kristol, Mike Rogers, and Mike Chertoff, join arms with those who caused the invasion of Iraq and tried to launch a bombing campaign against Tehran, has repercussions that will easily survive the Trump presidency.

“Perhaps the most notable fact about the current posture of the establishment wing of the Democratic Party is that one of their favorite, most beloved, and most cited pundits is the same neocon who wrote George W. Bush’s oppressive, bullying and deceitful speeches in 2002 and 2003 about Iraq and the war on terror, and who has churned out some of the most hateful, inflammatory rhetoric over the last decade about Palestinians, immigrants, and Muslims. That Bush propagandist, David Frum, is regularly feted on MSNBC’s liberal programs, has been hired by The Atlantic (where he writes warnings about authoritarianism even though he’s only qualified to write manuals for its implementation), and is treated like a wise and honored statesman by leading Democratic Party organs.”

Look Who’s Saying: “Trump’s Right, the Constitution Is ‘Archaic’

Is the Constitution archaic, as President Donald Trump implied recently in an interview with Fox News? The answer is a resounding yes — if you’re an originalist, as Trump claims to be. The president unwittingly hit on the best possible justification for a living Constitution, which evolves to meet changing times. That evolution, of course, needs to take account of the fundamental elements necessary for life — such as the separation of powers. And it would be a disastrous idea to amend the First Amendment, as Chief of Staff Reince Priebus hinted in another recent interview. But broadly speaking, the way to avoid archaism is to recognize that the Constitution is alive, and like every living thing, must adapt to changing circumstances.

Let’s start with precision, something not always present in Trump’s remarks or liberal criticism of them. Trump didn’t literally say the Constitution was archaic. Instead, he referred to “politics” generally:

It’s a very rough system, it’s an archaic system. You look at the rules of the Senate, even the rules of the House, but the rules of the Senate and some of the things you have to go through, it’s really a bad thing for the country in my opinion. There are archaic rules and maybe at some point, we’re going to have to take those rules on because for the good of the nation things are going to have to be different.

You might think that Trump is saying it’s archaic for Congress to vote before passing a law. But that radical statement can’t fairly be attributed to him. Read closely, Trump’s concerns seem to be mainly about Senate rules like the filibuster.

Notably, the filibuster isn’t in the Constitution. In fact, the filibuster is seriously undemocratic, because it allows a Senate minority to block the majority. And for the record, Trump is entirely right to think of the filibuster as archaic. Not only is it old, it has a shameful history of being used to block civil-rights legislation in the Senate.

The only thing that makes the filibuster constitutional is that, like other rules of the House and Senate, it falls within Congress’s power to make its own internal rules. Article 1, Section 5 of the Constitution says that “each house may determine the rules of its proceedings.”

That means the president can’t constitutionally do anything about such rules. When Trump said, “We’re going to have to take those rules on,” the term “we” must be interpreted pretty loosely. The most Trump can do is use his bully pulpit to criticize.

In fact, the filibuster has been shrinking in recent years, as both Democrats and Republicans have used the so-called nuclear option to eliminate its use for judicial nominees. The filibuster is still in place for legislation, however. For it to be eliminated would mean further evolution in legislative procedure.

Indeed, such evolution is desirable and necessary in constitutional affairs more generally. Take the administrative state, about which Trump’s Supreme Court appointee, Neil Gorsuch, has written critically.

The administrative state isn’t in the Constitution, strictly speaking. Independent agencies weren’t contemplated by the founders. Neither was the ability of many agencies to enact regulations that have the force of law, or their broad capacity to adjudicate. It’s a commonplace of administrative law that agencies exercise these quasi-legislative and quasi-judicial functions despite the fact that they nominally belong to the executive branch.

This governmental evolution requires constant updating. A case in point: the Congressional Review Act of 1996, which gives Congress 60 legislative days to reverse administrative orders issued by a previous presidential administration. Trump has signed 13 bills reversing Obama policies. That’s 12 more times than the law had ever been used before.

The idea behind the act is that Congress has the inherent lawmaking authority to review and reverse decisions made by the apparatus of the administrative state. Actually rolling back regulation may be unwise, but the Congressional Review Act itself represents a creative, evolutionary component of making the administrative state into a functioning part of the U.S. constitutional structure.

Because Congress has the power to reverse regulation, the authority of the agencies to make those regulations in the first place is rendered more legitimate.

It’s worth noting that the Congressional Review Act was passed by a Republican Congress as part of the “Contract With America” — and signed by President Bill Clinton. In some general way, the law may be better for Republicans than Democrats, because Democrats tend to favor more regulation than Republicans. Yet it reflects an underlying democratic model of lawmaking, in which Congress and the president who signs the law must take responsibility for the regulations they roll back.

Eliminating the administrative state on originalist grounds would be absurd — and archaic, to use Trump’s words. A functioning constitutional system needs agencies. Those agencies in turn need to be part of a broader constitutional ecosystem that includes both judicial and legislative oversight.

The upshot is that it’s nice Trump has discovered that there are archaisms in the Constitution. That’s why it needs to evolve, and why originalism is a seriously mistaken constitutional philosophy.

The separation of powers, however, isn’t archaic. Neither is the First Amendment. They are the spine and lifeblood of the Constitution. Take them out, and the system will end. Never forget: The opposite of the living Constitution is a dead one.

Why Not a Probe of ‘Israel-gate’?

Special Report: As Official Washington fumes about Russia-gate, Israel’s far more significant political-influence-and-propaganda campaigns are ignored. No one dares suggest a probe of Israel-gate, says Robert Parry.

By Robert Parry

The other day, I asked a longtime Democratic Party insider who is working on the Russia-gate investigation which country interfered more in U.S. politics, Russia or Israel. Without a moment’s hesitation, he replied, “Israel, of course.”

Which underscores my concern about the hysteria raging across Official Washington about “Russian meddling” in the 2016 presidential campaign: There is no proportionality applied to the question of foreign interference in U.S. politics. If there were, we would have a far more substantive investigation of Israel-gate.

The problem is that if anyone mentions the truth about Israel’s clout, the person is immediately smeared as “anti-Semitic” and targeted by Israel’s extraordinarily sophisticated lobby and its many media/political allies for vilification and marginalization.

So, the open secret of Israeli influence is studiously ignored, even as presidential candidates prostrate themselves before the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both appeared before AIPAC in 2016, with Clinton promising to take the U.S.-Israeli relationship “to the next level” – whatever that meant – and Trump vowing not to “pander” and then pandering like crazy.

Congress is no different. It has given Israel’s controversial Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a record-tying three invitations to address joint sessions of Congress (matching the number of times British Prime Minister Winston Churchill appeared). We then witnessed the Republicans and Democrats competing to see how often their members could bounce up and down and who could cheer Netanyahu the loudest, even when the Israeli prime minister was instructing the Congress to follow his position on Iran rather than President Obama’s.

Israeli officials and AIPAC also coordinate their strategies to maximize political influence, which is derived in large part by who gets the lobby’s largesse and who doesn’t. On the rare occasion when members of Congress step out of line – and take a stand that offends Israeli leaders – they can expect a well-funded opponent in their next race, a tactic that dates back decades.

Well-respected members, such as Rep. Paul Findley and Sen. Charles Percy (both Republicans from Illinois), were early victims of the Israeli lobby’s wrath when they opened channels of communication with the Palestine Liberation Organization in the cause of seeking peace. Findley was targeted and defeated in 1982; Percy in 1984.

Findley recounted his experience in a 1985 book, They Dare to Speak Out: People and Institutions Confront Israel’s Lobby, in which Findley called the lobby “the 700-pound gorilla in Washington.” The book was harshly criticized in a New York Times review by Adam Clymer, who called it “an angry, one-sided book that seems often to be little more than a stringing together of stray incidents.”

Enforced Silence

Since then, there have been fewer and fewer members of Congress or other American politicians who have dared to speak out, judging that – when it comes to the Israeli lobby – discretion is the better part of valor. Today, many U.S. pols grovel before the Israeli government seeking a sign of favor from Prime Minister Netanyahu, almost like Medieval kings courting the blessings of the Pope at the Vatican.

During the 2008 campaign, then-Sen. Barack Obama, whom Netanyahu viewed with suspicion, traveled to Israel to demonstrate sympathy for Israelis within rocket-range of Gaza while steering clear of showing much empathy for the Palestinians.

In 2012, Republican nominee Mitt Romney tried to exploit the tense Obama-Netanyahu relationship by stopping in Israel to win a tacit endorsement from Netanyahu. The 2016 campaign was no exception with both Clinton and Trump stressing their love of Israel in their appearances before AIPAC.

Money, of course, has become the lifeblood of American politics – and American supporters of Israel have been particularly strategic in how they have exploited that reality.

One of Israel’s most devoted advocates, casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, has poured millions of dollars in “dark money” into political candidates and groups that support Israel’s interests. Adelson, who has advocated dropping a nuclear bomb inside Iran to coerce its government, is a Trump favorite having donated a record $5 million to Trump’s inaugural celebration.

Of course, many Israel-connected political donations are much smaller but no less influential. A quarter century ago, I was told how an aide to a Democratic foreign policy chairman, who faced a surprisingly tough race after redistricting, turned to the head of AIPAC for help and, almost overnight, donations were pouring in from all over the country. The chairman was most thankful.

The October Surprise Mystery

Israel’s involvement in U.S. politics also can be covert. For instance, the evidence is now overwhelming that the Israeli government of right-wing Prime Minister Menachem Begin played a key role in helping Ronald Reagan’s campaign in 1980 strike a deal with Iran to frustrate President Jimmy Carter’s efforts to free 52 American hostages before Election Day.

President Jimmy Carter signing the Camp David peace agreement with Egypt’s Anwar Sadat and Israel’s Menachem Begin.

Begin despised Carter for the Camp David Accords that forced Israel to give back the Sinai to Egypt. Begin also believed that Carter was too sympathetic to the Palestinians and – if he won a second term – would conspire with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat to impose a two-state solution on Israel.

Begin’s contempt for Carter was not even a secret. In a 1991 book, The Last Option, senior Israeli intelligence and foreign policy official David Kimche explained Begin’s motive for dreading Carter’s reelection. Kimche said Israeli officials had gotten wind of “collusion” between Carter and Sadat “to force Israel to abandon her refusal to withdraw from territories occupied in 1967, including Jerusalem, and to agree to the establishment of a Palestinian state.”

Kimche continued, “This plan prepared behind Israel’s back and without her knowledge must rank as a unique attempt in United States’s diplomatic history of short-changing a friend and ally by deceit and manipulation.”

But Begin recognized that the scheme required Carter winning a second term in 1980 when, Kimche wrote, “he would be free to compel Israel to accept a settlement of the Palestinian problem on his and Egyptian terms, without having to fear the backlash of the American Jewish lobby.”

In a 1992 memoir, Profits of War, former Israeli intelligence officer Ari Ben-Menashe also noted that Begin and other Likud leaders held Carter in contempt.

“Begin loathed Carter for the peace agreement forced upon him at Camp David,” Ben-Menashe wrote. “As Begin saw it, the agreement took away Sinai from Israel, did not create a comprehensive peace, and left the Palestinian issue hanging on Israel’s back.”

So, in order to buy time for Israel to “change the facts on the ground” by moving Jewish settlers into the West Bank, Begin felt Carter’s reelection had to be prevented. A different president also presumably would give Israel a freer hand to deal with problems on its northern border with Lebanon.

Ben-Menashe was among a couple of dozen government officials and intelligence operatives who described how Reagan’s campaign, mostly through future CIA Director William Casey and past CIA Director George H.W. Bush, struck a deal in 1980 with senior Iranians who got promises of arms via Israel in exchange for keeping the hostages through the election and thus humiliating Carter. (The hostages were finally released on Jan. 20, 1981, after Reagan was sworn in as President.)

Discrediting History

Though the evidence of the so-called October Surprise deal is far stronger than the current case for believing that Russia colluded with the Trump campaign, Official Washington and the mainstream U.S. media have refused to accept it, deeming it a “conspiracy theory.”

President Ronald Reagan, delivering his Inaugural Address on Jan. 20, 1981, as the 52 U.S. hostages in Iran are simultaneously released.

One of the reasons for the hostility directed against the 1980 case was the link to Israel, which did not want its hand in manipulating the election of a U.S. president to become an accepted part of American history. So, for instance, the Israeli government went to great lengths to discredit Ben-Menashe after he began to speak with reporters and to give testimony to the U.S. Congress.

When I was a Newsweek correspondent and first interviewed Ben-Menashe in 1990, the Israeli government initially insisted that he was an impostor, that he had no connection to Israeli intelligence.

However, when I obtained documentary evidence of Ben-Menashe’s work for a military intelligence unit, the Israelis admitted that they had lied but then insisted that he was just a low-level translator, a claim that was further contradicted by other documents showing that he had traveled widely around the world on missions to obtain weapons for the Israel-to-Iran arms pipeline.

Nevertheless, the Israeli government along with sympathetic American reporters and members of the U.S. Congress managed to shut down any serious investigation into the 1980 operation, which was, in effect, the prequel to Reagan’s Iran-Contra arms-for-hostages scandal of 1984-86. Thus, U.S. history was miswritten. [For more details, see Robert Parry’s America’s Stolen NarrativeSecrecy & Privilege; and Trick or Treason.]

Looking back over the history of U.S.-Israeli relations, it is clear that Israel exercised significant influence over U.S. presidents since its founding in 1948, but the rise of Israel’s right-wing Likud Party in the 1970s – led by former Jewish terrorists Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Shamir – marked a time when Israel shed any inhibitions about interfering directly in U.S. politics.

Convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard in the photo from his U.S. Naval Intelligence ID.

Much as Begin and Shamir engaged in terror attacks on British officials and Palestinian civilians during Israel’s founding era, the Likudniks who held power in 1980 believed that the Zionist cause trumped normal restraints on their actions. In other words, the ends justified the means.

In the 1980s, Israel also mounted spying operations aimed at the U.S. government, including those of intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard, who fed highly sensitive documents to Israel and – after being caught and spending almost three decades in prison – was paroled and welcomed as a hero inside Israel.

A History of Interference

But it is true that foreign interference in U.S. politics is as old as the American Republic. In the 1790s, French agents – working with the Jeffersonians – tried to rally Americans behind France’s cause in its conflict with Great Britain. In part to frustrate the French operation, the Federalists passed the Alien and Sedition Acts.

Wanted Poster of the Palestine Police Force offering rewards for the capture of Stern Gang terrorists: 1. Jaacov Levstein (Eliav), 2. Yitzhak Yezernitzky (Shamir), 3. Natan Friedman-Yelin

In the Twentieth Century, Great Britain undertook covert influence operations to ensure U.S. support in its conflicts with Germany, while German agents unsuccessfully sought the opposite.

So, the attempts by erstwhile allies and sometimes adversaries to move U.S. foreign policy in one direction or another is nothing new, and the U.S. government engages in similar operations in countries all over the world, both overtly and covertly.

It was the CIA’s job for decades to use propaganda and dirty tricks to ensure that pro-U.S. politicians were elected or put in power in Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa, pretty much everywhere the U.S. government perceived some interest. After the U.S. intelligence scandals of the 1970s, however, some of that responsibility was passed to other organizations, such as the U.S.-funded National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

NED, USAID and various “non-governmental organizations” (NGOs) finance activists, journalists and other operatives to undermine political leaders who are deemed to be obstacles to U.S. foreign policy desires.

In particular, NED has been at the center of efforts to flip elections to U.S.-backed candidates, such as in Nicaragua in 1990, or to sponsor “color revolutions,” which typically organize around some color as the symbol for mass demonstrations. Ukraine – on Russia’s border – has been the target of two such operations, the Orange Revolution in 2004, which helped install anti-Russian President Viktor Yushchenko, and the Maidan ouster of elected pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych in 2014.

NED president Carl Gershman, a neoconservative who has run NED since its founding in 1983, openly declared that Ukraine was “the biggest prize” in September 2013 — just months before the Maidan protests — as well as calling it an important step toward ousting Russian President Vladimir Putin. In 2016, Gershman called directly for regime change in Russia.

The Neoconservatives

Another key issue related to Israeli influence inside the United States is the role of the neocons, a political movement that emerged in the 1970s as a number of hawkish Democrats migrated to the Republican Party as a home for more aggressive policies to protect Israel and take on the Soviet Union and Arab states.

In some European circles, the neocons are described as “Israel’s American agents,” which may somewhat overstate the direct linkage between Israel and the neocons although a central tenet of neocon thinking is that there must be no daylight between the U.S. and Israel. The neocons say U.S. politicians must stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel even if that means the Americans sidling up to the Israelis rather than any movement the other way.

Since the mid-1990s, American neocons have worked closely with Benjamin Netanyahu. Several prominent neocons (including former Assistant Defense Secretary Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, David Wurmser, Meyrav Wurmser and Robert Loewenberg) advised Netanyahu’s 1996 campaign and urged a new strategy for “securing the realm.” Essentially, the idea was to replace negotiations with the Palestinians and Arab states with “regime change” for governments that were viewed as troublesome to Israel, including Iraq and Syria.

By 1998, the Project for the New American Century (led by neocons William Kristol and Robert Kagan) was pressuring President Bill Clinton to invade Iraq, a plan that was finally put in motion in 2003 under President George W. Bush.

But the follow-on plans to go after Syria and Iran were delayed because the Iraq War turned into a bloody mess, killing some 4,500 American soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. Bush could not turn to phase two until near the end of his presidency and then was frustrated by a U.S. intelligence estimate concluding that Iran was not working on a nuclear bomb (which was to be the pretext for a bombing campaign).

Bush also could pursue “regime change” in Syria only as a proxy effort of subversion, rather than a full-scale U.S. invasion. President Barack Obama escalated the Syrian proxy war in 2011 with the support of Israel and its strange-bedfellow allies in Saudi Arabia and the other Sunni-ruled Gulf States, which hated Syria’s government because it was allied with Shiite-ruled Iran — and Sunnis and Shiites have been enemies since the Seventh Century. Israel insists that the U.S. take the Sunni side, even if that puts the U.S. in bed with Al Qaeda.

But Obama dragged his heels on a larger U.S. military intervention in Syria and angered Netanyahu further by negotiating with Iran over its nuclear program rather than bomb-bomb-bombing Iran.

Showing the Love

Obama’s perceived half-hearted commitment to Israeli interests explained Romney’s campaign 2012 trip to seek Netanyahu’s blessings. Even after winning a second term, Obama sought to appease Netanyahu by undertaking a three-day trip to Israel in 2013 to show his love.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Still, in 2015, when Obama pressed ahead with the Iran nuclear agreement, Netanyahu went over the President’s head directly to Congress where he was warmly received, although the Israeli prime minister ultimately failed to sink the Iran deal.

In Campaign 2016, both Clinton and Trump wore their love for Israel on their sleeves, Clinton promising to take the relationship to “the next level” (a phrase that young couples often use when deciding to go from heavy petting to intercourse). Trump reminded AIPAC that he had a Jewish grandchild and vowed to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Both also bristled with hatred toward Iran, repeating the popular falsehood that “Iran is the principal source of terrorism” when it is Saudi Arabia and other Sunni sheikdoms that have been the financial and military supporters of Al Qaeda and Islamic State, the terror groups most threatening to Europe and the United States.

By contrast to Israel’s long history of playing games with U.S. politics, the Russian government stands accused of trying to undermine the U.S. political process recently by hacking into emails of the Democratic National Committee — revealing the DNC’s improper opposition to Sen. Bernie Sanders’s campaign — and of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta — disclosing the contents of Clinton’s paid speeches to Wall Street and pay-to-play aspects of the Clinton Foundation — and sharing that information with the American people via WikiLeaks.

Although WikiLeaks denies getting the two batches of emails from the Russians, the U.S. intelligence community says it has high confidence in its conclusions about Russian meddling and the mainstream U.S. media treats the allegations as flat-fact.

The U.S. intelligence community also has accused the Russian government of raising doubts in the minds of Americans about their political system by having RT, the Russian-sponsored news network, hold debates for third-party candidates (who were excluded from the two-party Republican-Democratic debates) and by having RT report on protests such as Occupy Wall Street and issues such as “fracking.”

The major U.S. news media and Congress seem to agree that the only remaining question is whether evidence can be adduced showing that the Trump campaign colluded in this Russian operation. For that purpose, a number of people associated with the Trump campaign are to be hauled before Congress and made to testify on whether or not they are Russian agents.

Meanwhile, The Washington Post, The New York Times and other establishment-approved outlets are working with major technology companies on how to marginalize independent news sources and to purge “Russian propaganda” (often conflated with “fake news”) from the Internet.

It seems that no extreme is too extreme to protect the American people from the insidious Russians and their Russia-gate schemes to sow doubt about the U.S. political process. But God forbid if anyone were to suggest an investigation of Israel-gate.

Israel Celebrates 50 Years as Occupier

Nazareth.

Israel is to hold lavish celebrations over the coming weeks to mark the 50th anniversary of what it calls the “liberation of Judea, Samaria and the Golan Heights” – or what the rest of us describe as the birth of the occupation.

The centrepiece event will take place in Gush Etzion, south of Jerusalem. The West Bank settlement “bloc” enjoys wide support in Israel, not least because it was established long ago by the supposedly left-wing Labour party, now heading the opposition.

The jubilee is a potent reminder that for Israelis, most of whom have never known a time before the occupation, Israel’s rule over the Palestinians seems as irreversible as the laws of nature. But the extravagance of the festivities also underscores the growth over five decades of Israel’s self-assurance as an occupier.

Documents found this month in Israel’s archives reveal that, when Israel captured East Jerusalem in 1967, its first concern was to hoodwink the international community.

The foreign ministry ordered Israel’s ambassadors to mischaracterise its illegal annexation of East Jerusalem as a simple “municipal fusion”. To avoid diplomatic reprisals, Israel claimed it was necessary to ease the provision of essential services to the occupied Palestinian population.

Interestingly, those drafting the order advised that the deception was unlikely to succeed. The United States had already insisted that Israel commit no unilateral moves.

But within months Israel had evicted thousands of Palestinians from the Old City and destroyed their homes. Washington and Europe have been turning a blind eye to such actions ever since.

One of the Zionist movement’s favourite early slogans was: “Dunam after dunam, goat after goat”. The seizure of small areas of territory measured in dunams, the demolition of the odd home, and the gradual destruction of herding animals would slowly drive the Palestinians off most of their land, “liberating” it for Jewish colonisation. If it was done piecemeal, the objections from overseas would remain muffled. It has proved a winning formula.

Fifty years on, the colonisation of East Jerusalem and the West Bank is so entrenched that a two-state solution is nothing more than a pipe dream.

Nonetheless, US president Donald Trump has chosen this inauspicious moment to dispatch an envoy, Jason Greenblatt, to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

In a “goodwill” response, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has unveiled a framework for settlement building. It is exactly the kind of formula for deception that has helped Israel consolidate the occupation since 1967.

Netanyahu says expansion will be “restricted” to “previously developed” settlements, or “adjacent” areas, or, depending on the terrain, “land close” to a settlement.

Peace Now points out that the settlements already have jurisdiction over some 10 per cent of the West Bank, while far more is treated as “state land”. The new framework, says the group, gives the settlers a green light to “build everywhere”.

The Trump White House has shrugged its shoulders. A statement following Netanyahu’s announcement judged the settlements no “impediment to peace”, adding that Israel’s commitments to previous US administrations would be treated as moot.

Effectively, the US is wiping the slate clean, creating a new baseline for negotiations after decades of Israeli changes stripping the Palestinians of territory and rights.

Although none of this bodes well, Egypt and Jordan’s leaders met Trump this month to push for renewed talks between Israel and the Palestinians. The White House is said to be preparing to welcome the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas.

Some senior Palestinians are rightly wary. Abbas Zaki, a Fatah leader, fears Trump will try to impose a regional solution on Arab states, over Abbas’s head, designed to “eliminate the Palestinian cause altogether”.

David Ben Gurion, Israel’s founding father, reportedly once said: “What matters is not what the goyim [non-Jews] say, but what the Jews do.”

For nearly a quarter of a century, the Oslo accords dangled an illusory peace carrot that usefully distracted the global community as Israel nearly quadrupled its settler population, making even a highly circumscribed Palestinian state unrealisable.

Now, that game plan is about to be revived in new form. While the US, Israel, Jordan and Egypt focus on the hopeless task of creating a regional framework for peace, Israel will be left undisturbed once again to seize more dunams and more goats.

In Israel, the debate is no longer simply about whether to build settler homes, or about how many can be justified. Government ministers argue instead about the best moment to annex vast areas of the West Bank associated with so-called settlement blocs such as Gush Etzion.

Israel’s imminent celebrations should lay to rest any confusion that the occupation is still considered temporary. But when occupation becomes permanent, it metamorphoses into something far uglier.

It is past time to recognise that Israel has established an apartheid regime and one that serves as a vehicle for incremental ethnic cleansing. If there are to be talks, ending that outrage must be their first task.

Donald Trump May Well Be Jewish -THAT Would Explain A Great Deal…

In his biography The Art of the Deal, Trump lied about his grandfather’s country of origin, stating it was Sweden instead of Germany. So if you think these people wouldn’t lie about their ancestry, you need to explain that whopper.

Trump was brought up in Jamaica Estates, Queens, which has a large Jewish population. He went to Kew-Forest School, ditto. Its other notable alumni include Katherine Weber, Jewish, Gideon Yago, Jewish, and Hank Azaria, Jewish. Googling on “attended Kew-Forest” brings up mostly Jewish names. Trump’s father was on the Board of Trustees at Kew-Forest. By the way, it is very expensive.

His genealogy is a total mirage. I’ll show you where to look. First go to his mother at Geni.com

Family Tree & Family History at Geni.com
Create your family tree and invite relatives to share. Search 170 million profiles and discover new ancestors. Share photos, videos and more atGeni.com.

She is Mary Anne MacLeod. So they want you to think she is Scots. Then click on her father, Malcolm MacLeod. Then click on his mother, Anne MacLeod. She is the wife of Alexander MacLeod, so that is her married name. What is her maiden name? Whoops, it is also MacLeod, because her father is also named Alexander MacLeod. So both her father and her husband have the same first and last names? Did she marry her own father? Also, her birthyear is given as 1833. Note the 33. [Geni also fails to mention what we have to learn from the DailyMail: the name Trump was originally Drumpf.]

That can’t be right, can it? So let’s check the other genealogies. The second listed on a Google search is at About.com
The largest source for Expert content on the Internet that helps users answer questions, solve problems, learn something new or find inspiration.

.But it has nothing to say about this. It stops just short of the Anne MacLeod problem.
But it does tell us something interesting: both Trump’s parents died at Long Island Jewish Medical Center.
Wikitree matches Geni.

So let’s return to Friedrich Drumpf, Donald’s great-grandfather. Two of his sisters are listed as Elisabetha Freund and Syblia Schuster. Oi-vay! Those are both Jewish surnames. We just saw the name Schuster in my paper on Engels published two days ago. I reminded you there that Max Schuster, founder of Simon&Schuster, is now admitted to be Jewish. The Schuster in the Socialism project with Engels was also shown to be almost certainly Jewish. As for Freund, see Michael Freund, Moshe Aryeh Freund, Wilhelm Freund, Yoav Freund, Leopold Freund, and too many others to mention. So at least two of Trump’s great-aunts married Jewish men. This reminds us that his daughter Ivanka married a Jewish man, Jared Kushner. We are told this is an anomaly, but it isn’t. What is an anomaly is that Kushner admits he is Jewish.

Friedrich Drumpf’s mother is named Katarina Kober. Not only is that possibly Jewish, but it lead to another suspicious scrubbing of the genealogy. Her father is given as Johann, but he has no parents. He is the only one in that generation whose parents are unknown. Even his wife’s parents are known. I suggest the name isn’t Kober, but Kolber. We have seen the genealogies being whitewashed this way again and again. Changing one letter is often the best way to do it. It is the most subtle, so it draws the least attention. Kolber is very often Jewish.

With more study, we find that Trump’s aunt Elizabeth married William O. Walter. That name is also possibly Jewish. We find a William Walter as Director of Jewish Family Services in York, PA. Also a William Walter just buried at Jewish Memorial Chapel of Long Island. Also a William O. Walter marrying a Cora Neuhauser in Lebanon, PA, in 1924. That name is also probably Jewish. And most curiously, a William Walter, Esq. listed in the Jewish Missionary Intelligence of June, 1896. More research discovers his firm were the honorary stockbrokers of this London Jewish society in 1900. That is interesting because it directly ties to my previous paper on Friedrich Engels and Robert Owen. Owen’s brother in-law was James Haldane Stewart, who worked for the Jews’ Society in the 1830s and 40s, a precursor of this Jewish Missionary Intelligence. At any rate, this may be our William Walter or his father, given that date. His father is scrubbed at Geni. The names Walter and Walters were chosen by Jews entering the US, as a new name, as we see from Barbara Walters. Her father Louis Walters was original Louis Abrahams.

Both Trump and his father ran with top Jews in New York, including Samuel Lindenbaum and his father Abraham (Bunny), and Roy Cohn. These guys weren’t just their attorneys, they were their enablers. As the NYT says in the 2012 obituary of Samuel Lindenbaum:

Mr. Lindenbaum cultivated a scholar’s knowledge of the Zoning Resolution, the arcane document that governs development in New York. As a result, he was able to bend the resolution to his clients’ will without breaking it. And because his clients were major builders and landowners — among them Harry B. Helmsley, Harry Macklowe, Larry A. Silverstein, Jerry I. Speyer, Leonard Litwin, Steven Roth and Donald J. Trump; the Fishers and Tisches and Rudins and Roses. . .

Notice anything about that list? Everyone on it “except” Trump is admitted to be Jewish. Curious, no?

Ivana is also Jewish.  Geni.com lists her father’s name as both Knavs and Zelnícek. I’ll give you a hint: drop the second “e”. You get Zelnick. It is Yiddish for haberdasher. Clothier. It’s Jewish, too. See Robert Zelnick, Strauss Zelnick, Bob Zelnick, etc. Robert was a fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford. Strauss was President of 20th Century Fox. Bob was ABC News producer. Also Friedrich Zelnik, silent film producer. Also David O. Selznick, whose name was originally Zeleznick, or, alternately, Zelnick. He and his father were major Hollywood producers.

So he married a jew, that makes his children jews and his adult children have married jews,  his aunt’s married jews,  his great aunt’s married jews, yada, yada, yada.

Kushners Belong to Jewish Supremacist Doomsday Cult

April 9, 2017

! jared Chabad.jpg

(Jared & Ivanka visit the Chabad Rebbe for a pre-election blessing Nov. 5, 2016)

 
Is Trump’s Jared Kushner connection to
the Chabad Lubavitch sect the cause for his dramatic U-turn?
The sect is deliberately fomenting a prophesied Third World War. 
It believes Jews are God’s chosen people and everyone 
else is trash.  In the book Gatherings of Conversations” 
Rebbe Schneerson tells his followers that Jewish people are an extension
 of God and Gentiles are destined to serve the Jews.
Historian Wolfgang Eggert says this is the real face of the Illuminati; the Rothschilds belong to this cult. He says this cult intends to initiate a nuclear holocaust in order to fulfill biblical prophecy and hasten the return of the Messiah:
 
“History and politics are a big movie, and they are the directors, bringing old-testament-prophecy into reality. They captured freemasonry by building up the illuminati (through Rothschild/Jacob Frank/Weishaupt); they made a pact with the British monarchy when they financed William III to become king; they placed the British royals at the head of the Freemasons; they made the modern banking system and the Fed (through Rothschild); they made Zionism, the world wars, the European union and so on. They reign through their puppets Rothschild (whose ancestors had been part of the chassidic cult) and Rockefeller, who were the guiding force behind Bilderberg, the trilaterals etc. We are now in the “End Times”; they are trying to foment a “prophesied” Third World War.”
Chris Bjerkness agrees: Redemption requires the “King of the Jews” (the Rothschilds)  to rule the world after a nuclear holocaust.
Jared Kushner attended Chabad House at Harvard.  “Israel wasn’t a political discussion for him; it was his family, his life, his people,” said Hirschy Zarchi, rabbi at the Chabad House at Harvard.

Between 2003 and 2013, his family foundation donated a total of $342,500 to various institutions and projects associated with the movement. Especially endowed was

 the Chabad center at Harvard University, which received $150,000 in 2007 (the foundation’s single biggest donation to a Lubavitch-affiliated enterprise) and then another $3,600 in 2013.  In addition, the Donald J. Trump Foundation has donated $11,550 to three Chabad institutions.
In 2006, Kushner’s father Charles was sentenced to 24 months in prison for making illegal campaign donations & witness tampering.

Chabad Lubavitch is a nasty Jewish supremicist cult that serve the Illuminati. Despite only having 200,000 followers, it has intimate ties to nearly every powerful government leader on earth.

Chabad’s power derives from two services they provide the Illuminati:

1. They work with Israeli intelligence in criminal and intelligence operations.

2. They promote a supremacist ideology that encourages Zionists to do  dirty deeds.

CHABAD IS A HERETICAL CULT

Founded in 18th century Russia, Chabad is a branch of Hasidic Judaism, a form of Orthodox Judaism that promotes Jewish mysticism as the path to enlightenment. Chabad Lubavitchers study the Kabbalah, the satanic creed that erases moral absolutes and believes God is ‘subjective’.

obama-and-chabad-leader-levi-Shemtov.JPG(Left, Barry Soetero with Chabad DC chieftain, Levi Shemtov)

Chabad came to prominence under the guidance of ‘The Great Rebbe’ Menachem Mendel Schneerson. His policies led Chabad through a period of great expansion establishing institutions in 900 cities around the world.

‘The Great Rebbe’ gave regular talks on the coming of the messiah. Over time, Lubavitchers began to realize that he meant himself. The belief that Schneerson was the Messiah was first openly professed by Rabbi Shavom Dol Wolpo in a 1984 book and quickly gained acceptance.

Absurdly, even though he died in 1994 ‘The Great Rebbe’ is still the official leader of Chabad, like ‘Great Leader’ Kim Il-Sung is the leader of North Korea.

In Chabad schoolhouses children chant and salute the invisible Rebbe.

RACIAL SUPREMACISTS

Chabad believes Jews are God’s chosen people and everyone else is trash.  In the book “Gatherings and Conversations” the Great Rebbe tells his followers that Jewish people are an extension of God and Gentiles are destined to serve the Jews.

“Two contrary types of soul exist, a non-Jewish soul comes from three satanic spheres, while the Jewish soul stems from holiness.”

“A Jew was not created as a means for some [other] purpose; he himself is the purpose, since the substance of all [divine] emanations was created only to serve the Jews.”

Rabbi Ginsburgh, a leading Chabad Rabbi, has argued that because Gentiles are genetically inferior to Jews, a Jew should be able to take Gentiles organs if he needs one. He was recorded saying, ‘As for the goyim… Zalman’s attitude (was): “Gentile souls are of a completely different and inferior order. They are totally evil, with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.”

‘If every single cell in a Jewish body entails divinity, is a part of God, then every strand of DNA is a part of God. Therefore, something is special about Jewish DNA.’

‘If a Jew needs a liver, can you take the liver of an innocent non-Jew passing by to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has an infinite value.’

The Jewish Daily Forward reported a talk given by Chabad Rabbi Mani Friedman.

Asked how he thinks Jews should treat their Arab neighbors Friedman responded, ‘The only way to fight a moral war is the Jewish way: Destroy their holy sites. Kill men, women and children (and cattle).’

ZIONIST APOLOGISTS

Chabad’s extremism makes them perfect apologists for Israeli crimes. A perfect example is Alan Dershowitz, a Chabad member.

Dershowitz is the premier Zionist apologist rolled out in front of the mainstream news cameras across the world to explain that Israelis are the victims of every massacre they carry out. An unhinged and creepy individual, during a recent speech he gave at Oxford University he took off his glasses and told the students that he has “Zionist eyes” as do all “reasonable people”, Dershowitz is one of many Jewish extremists in sheep’s clothing who lead mainstream political discourse in the West.

As further evidence that Wikileaks is an intelligence operation, Dershowitz recently joined Julian Assange’s legal team.

INFLUENCE

One of the policies of the Chabad is to send Rabbis across the world to set up Chabad houses. This movement, known as shilchus, has given Chabad a global support network.

chabadleaders2ax.jpgLubavitchers mix with the upper echelons of each host country. Their influence in each country varies.

The Canadian government recently gave the cult $800,000 for the building of a Chabad center in Montreal. Relations with Russia are less warm; the Russians recently refused to hand over two major collections of Chabad texts seized by early Soviet governments.

Where is Chabad’s influence the greatest? You guessed it- the US.

Rabbi Shemtov is Chabad’s Washington representative, and his enormous influence was illustrated when he lobbied successfully for the Great Rebbe to be posthumously awarded the congressional gold medal in 1995, the only religious leader ever to be given the award.

Rabbi Shemtov is an all-pervasive presence in D.C. Sue Fishkoff, author of ‘The Rebbe’s Army: Inside the World of Chabad-Lubavitch’, writes: “It’s not enough that Chabad’s man in D.C. knows the name and phone number of just about every congressman, senator and foreign ambassador in the nation’s capital — he also knows their legislative assistants, their secretaries and the people who clean their offices.”

Shemtov says that the vast network of shelichim  inside the US generates his political power. “We have shelichimin forty-seven states and in [at least] 310 districts. … People sometimes view the world of shelichim as three thousand people, but it’s not only three thousand people, it’s three thousand interconnected networks. So we can place a call from a constituent to almost any member of Congress.”

“Most shelichim have good connections with their senators, congressmen and governors, who represent the most remote places in the United States. For example, when Sarah Palin, a Republican, burst onto the scene, she had already known about Jewish issues and Chabad specifically from Rabbi Yosef Greenberg in Alaska.”

Members of the cast of ‘Friends’ recorded a piece for a Chabad telethon. Bob Dylan appeared on another.

CRIMINAL AND TERROR ENTERPRISES

Chabad is a criminal organization with ties to Mossad. Chabad houses provides safe houses and storefronts for Israeli intelligence and criminal activity. This includes everything from terrorism to money laundering, drug running to prostitution.

chabad (1).jpgFor instance, in March 1989 U.S. law enforcement rounded up a criminal network in Seattle, Los Angeles, New Jersey, Colombia, and Israel that involved a Chabad House that was involved in money laundering and currency violations.

Wayne Madsen writes: ‘In Bangkok, Israeli military pilots and drivers who stay at the Chabad House there train Thai Army commandos, divers, and pilots who are fighting a Muslim secessionist movement along the southern border with Malaysia.

‘Bangkok police have long suspected Chabad House as a center for the Israeli Mafia, which runs its Ecstasy and Ice trade from Bangkok for all of Southeast and East Asia. The Israeli Mafia also reportedly runs heroin labs in Myanmar, where an Israeli military officer serves in Myanmar’s feared military counter-intelligence agency.’

Retaliation against the Chabad mafia can be seen in the Mumbai terrorist attacks when Lashkar-e-Taiba militants took hostage of the Mumbai Chabad house and murdered nine Jews, including Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg.

Wayne Madsen has reported that mafia overlord Dawood Ibrahim ordered the attacks partly in response to Israeli mafia attempts to take over his Mumbai drug trade.

‘[Wayne Madsen Report] has learned from Asian intelligence sources that the Russian-Israeli gangsters operating out of Chabad House tried to take over Mumbai’s drug trade with the help of local Jewish mobsters so Ibrahim, while settling scores with India, the CIA, and Britain, decided to have his subcontractor LET terrorists pay a visit to Chabad House and “collect on a debt with high interest.”‘

Chabad are allowed to exist as a powerful international force because they serve Israel in two ways: working with them in intelligence and criminal activities, and a source of extremist ideology to fuel Zionist crimes.

Historian Demands Action on Powerful Doomsday Cults
http://aanirfan.blogspot.ca/2016/11/jared-kushner-kissinger-murdoch.html
FIRST COMMENT FROM SID GREEN
There’s a missing link there which is Sabbataen movement. Whatever Chabad’s influence etc. it is because of their link to Jacob Frank, Frankism, and the religion of Edom expressed in Frank’s psychotic demoniac ramblings. To call “Rothschild” a member of “the cult” is intellectually hilarious. Does Rothschild go around with a black hat or say Shma Yisrael in the morning? Hell no. Rothschild is a Frankist, not a Hasidic Chabadnik. Chabad is a SABBATAEN INFLUENCED branch of Illuminati influence which has access to influencing Hasidic- oriented Jews. But their main thing is based on Frankism and Sabbataenism, Chabad itself is not behind the Illuminati, Frankism is
Scholem has written droves of info distinguishing Hasidism from Sabbataenism.
It’s the small intellectual errors made by certain contributors that get to me because I see it as a complicity in the confusion of the dialectic. Selling multiple brands (the contributor)  of the same story does nothing to synthesize a correct big picture of whats going on. Sabbataen movement was Judaism’s final descent into pure Satanism. Chabad is quasi-Orthodox quasi Sabbataen quasi this quasi that. They are also quasi college party. People go to their gatherings for free food and free vodka.
There’s a difference between that and sacrificing  babies while sodomizing each other (the Frankist life)
One of the main differences it that overt Luciferian scum does not dress up like Hasidic Jews, like really they don’t.
They just wear pajamas that they wore after passing out of their latest blood fest of rape and degeneracy.

Trump’s Double Cross: Where Have We Seen this Before?

April 8, 2017

trump-hitler-meme.jpgHitler was elected to make Germany great again. 

The bankers had something else in mind. Total destruction and devastation.
 
Donald Trump betrayed most of his core supporters by using a lame pretext to attack Syria.  In this article written before the election, I asked if Trump was “the real deal?”
I compared him to Hitler who  was false opposition , a creation of the bankers he condemned. Whether Trump leads the US to destruction, like Hitler did to Germany, we shall see.  But he is definitely false opposition in the sense that he and Hillary were
in the same camp all along.
Trump will Win — But is he the “Real Deal?”  Oct 27, 2017

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

I believe Donald Trump will win the Presidential election November 8. However,  I am hesitant to think that his victory will be a setback for the New World Order. I have a nagging suspicion that he is false opposition, and that the Illuminati have found a way to advance their agenda by electing him instead of Hillary. I am just not sure yet what that is.
Here is why I am wary of Trump but think he will win.
Cvt-A3DUAAAhIP9.jpg1. The hysteria exhibited by the elite media and Wall Street gives Trump credibility. The Illuminati bankers have a record of pretending to be against their own agents. In 1932, they organized a coup just to give FDR credibility. In 1912, they pretended to be against the legislation that established the Federal Reserve.
2.  Look at what happens to Presidents who represent an actual threat to the Illuminati bankers. They are assassinated (i.e. JFK, Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley.) So are Presidential candidates like Huey Long, George Wallace and RFK.  Or they are poisoned. (Harding, Harrison, Taylor.) Or they are framed (Nixon.)
3.  Donald Trump has been part of the Masonic Jewish (Illuminati) Cabal all his life. He is a crypto Jew and he is surrounded by Jews. His children married Jews. He is constantly making Masonic hand signs. He pretends he doesn’t know who is behind ISIS, terror and 9-11. He prostrates before the rogue state Israel. (Is that only a strategic necessity?) Let’s just say, I’d feel a lot better if Trump came from a different, uncompromised background.
4. Look who’s supporting Trump to the hilt? Alex Jones whose credibility has been questioned. Breitbart, a Jewish neo con group. Newt Gingrich?
5. Hillary will lose because she is a weak candidate. She is unlikely to get the votes of Bernie Saunders Democrats. Everyone knows she is corrupt and a liar. The Clinton Foundation is a giant kickback machine. The private server disguised her influence-peddling. Blaming the Russians for Wikileaks is pathetic. Hiring people to disrupt Trump rallies is pathetic. The heterophobic smears vs. Trump are pathetic. Her health issues are a big question mark. She is not trusted by the minorities she appeals to for support.
At the Goldman Sachs Builders and Innovators Summit, Clinton responded to a question from chief executive Lloyd Blankfein, who quipped that you “go to Washington” to “make a small fortune.” Clinton agreed with the comment and complained about ethics rules that require officials to divest from certain assets before entering government. “There is such a bias against people who have led successful and/or complicated lives,” Clinton said. (source)
How could anyone vote for her? Obama only beat Romney by 3% in 2012. Hillary is a much weaker candidate than Obama, and Trump much stronger than Romney.
hand-sign-hitler.jpeg(left, Donald the decoy)
6. Hitler was put into power by the Illuminati to destroy Germany, establish the state of Israel by martyring anti-Zionist Jews, and to kill six million German anti-Semites as well as 55 million other assorted goyim. Hitler was a traitor assigned to lead Germany to destruction. Hitler also is believed to have Jewish (possibly Rothschild) blood. We know how this turned out for Germany.
The question is: How would a Trump victory advance the Illuminati Jewish (Satanist) program for one world government tyranny?
I appeal to my readers for help imagining this scenario.  The obvious answer is that Trump could go back on his word. Both Woodrow Wilson and FDR campaigned on a promise to stay out of world wars.
 The Masonic Jewish bankers could use his election as an excuse to precipitate an economic crisis and depression to punish recalcitrant Americans and blame Trump and everything he represents. Jeb Bush calls him “the chaos candidate” as in order out of chaos? There could be a drift toward fascism or a run on the dollar and the US role in the world could be diminished in favour of world government.  I’m just guessing here; I need your input.

Trump-Clinton-wedding.jpg

(It’s a cult and you ain’t in it.)
In the Protocols of Zion 1, the author says they conquer by “force and make-believe.” Make-believe = their magick = deception/ lying. Can we deny this election campaign has an air of make-believe? Who better to headline it than the former star of a Reality Show?
Nevertheless, voting for Hillary is like inmates voting for the Warden. If I were an American, I would vote Trump and pray he does “drain the swamp.”

First Comment by Dan- 
 
You now have the opportunity you’ve been waiting for to get to many readers that supported Trump because he was the only option they gave us that hadn’t already stabbed us in the back like all the rest of them.
This is a good position for you, but please please don’t squander it with another silly Hitler comparison.  Just don’t.
Yes, we’ve seen this before.  WOODROW WILSON, April 6th, 1917. You know, the President who signed the Federal Reserve Act in 1913.   If you think comparisons will help people, please use the right one.
The parallel between Wilson’s betrayal of campaign promise to ‘keep us out of war’ and Trump’s Centennial repeat is so uncanny as to be a sick joke.

(Reply, and there is FDR too. The parallel is that Hitler led Germany to destruction. Wilson just broke his word.)
Wade– I strongly supported Trump and voted for him. The attack on Syria was exactly what he said he would not do during the campaign. It is also exactly  what I believe Hillary would have done.

This attack on Syria could be the beginning of a process towards nuclear war with Russia and China. Many of those who voted for Trump thought we were averting the threat of nuclear war by not letting Hillary occupy the White House. Now we don’t know what to think!!

The people of the USA are so under informed and brainwashed that the vast majority do not realize that the bombs we dropped on Japan in WWII were “pop guns” compared to the nuclear weapons of today. We are talking about one nuclear bomb that could destroy half the state of New York. And we are not discussing the weapons that exist that we know nothing about.

Avoiding war with Russia and China should be job one for Trump, and all Americans need to understand this fact. THEY DO NOT!! God help us is the correct sentiment.

Television as Mass Deception

TVTruth.jpg

With the advent of the popularity of television in the 1930s and 1940s, 
for the first time in history, the banksters had an instrument through which 
the masses could be controlled effectively, immediately, and effortlessly.  
British author, John Hamer says, “Television is by far the most devastating 
brainwashing device ever unleashed upon humanity.”
 
by John Hamer
(henrymakow.com)
Ironically, the BBC, upon which Orwell modelled his ‘Ministry of Truth,’ became one of the pioneers of television, the ultimate newspeak/doublespeak medium.
When Orwell died in January 1950, there were only 100,000 TVs in Britain and 5 million in the United States. Today, there are almost as many TVs as there are people in the western world.
Most people do not realize that when they turn on the television in their home, what they see as a constant flow of images is actually flickering and although we do not recognize this consciously, the repetitive pattern of flickering images creates a state that is similar to hypnosis in the television viewer.
Studies by researcher Dr. Herbert Krugman have shown that within 30 seconds of television viewing, brain waves switch from predominantly beta waves, indicating alert and conscious attention, to predominantly alpha waves, indicating an unfocussed yet receptive lack of attention. The brain’s left hemisphere, which processes information logically and analytically, tunes-out whilst a person is watching TV, whilst the right hemisphere of the brain, which processes information emotionally and non-critically, is allowed to function without hindrance.
 Due to this phenomenon, television transmits information, which is not actively recognized at the time of exposure, much like hypnosis and therefore when viewing TV, we do not consciously rationalize the information at the time of transmission and we become more open and suggestible.  Because of this passive, hypnosis-like viewing of television, as well as its predominance in our homes, television is one of the most powerful tools of control, today.

MONOPOLY
Cabalist Jews Bill Paley and David Sarnoff fronted for the central bankers in the establishment of CBS, NBC and ABC. During World War II, CBS founder Paley served as director of radio operations of the Psychological Warfare branch in the Office of War Information at Allied Force Headquarters in London, where he held the rank of colonel.
As of 2015, only five companies controlled all of the major media outlets (of all forms) in the United States.
The media giants work hand-and-glove with our bankster-controlled governments and corporations to disseminate carefully planned messages. They instruct us in what to think, what to worry about, what to laugh at and what to be scared of and have completely ‘sold’ the public on the idea of the newscaster being an extension of the family, a trusted father-figure who encourages the acceptance of the information being presented as true and accurate.

willy-12.jpeg

In 2012, the Pentagon spent more than $3 billion compensating major media outlets for disseminating their ‘public relations’ messages which are deceptively presented to the television viewer as news, produced by the television station, not as propaganda from the Pentagon.  In the same year, pharmaceutical companies paid television outlets more than $5 billion for advertising, which included Video News Releases (VNRs,) specially tailored pieces that appeared within the nightly news disguised as being the result of research by the local stations.  No other industrialised nation in the world even allows drug ads on television, let alone these cleverly disguised VNRs hidden within the ‘news.’
The public has been totally duped into placing all their trust into the major media outlets, believing that the mainstream media reports only strictly objective news, whilst any information delivered from alternative sources should always be questioned.  Somehow the public has bought into the idea that the TV would never lie to them and many people will not pay any regard to information that is not covered by the major media.
Most people simply believe that they are just being informed or entertained, but they do not realise that their way of life is being shaped for them and their opinions are actually being given to them. They are being familiarized with ideas, concepts, and fear so that they will not question future events.  Through the subtle use of propaganda, TV imprints messages in our minds, instructing us in what to believe and how.  But why would they do this?
INFORMATION IS POWER
When someone or something controls information, they also control the people absorbing that information.  The manufactured and controlled information on TV could be referred to as the ‘signal’ and that constant signal is what shapes and guides the masses to form their ‘own’ conclusions.

quote-shortly-the-public-will-be-unable-to-reason-or-think-for-themselves-they-ll-only-be-zbigniew-brzezinski-82-48-78 (1).jpg

News of no consequence or importance is constantly debated, dissected and analysed, and as we listen-in to the conversations of people around us, we will thereby realise that most are simply ‘robots,’ repeating as fact what they have heard on the news or in ‘documentaries.’  This is exactly what bankster-puppet Zbigniew Brzezinski referred-to in his book ‘Between Two Ages,’ (Left).
 
Today, the average American over the age of 2, spends more than 34 hours a week watching live television, plus another three to six hours watching recorded programmes.  Staggering really.  Children aged 2-11 watch an average of 24 hours of TV a week. That number dips to 22 hours for teens, ages 12-17 then, goes back up to 25 for 18-24 year-olds.  After that it rises steadily until people over 65 average 48 hours a week, or nearly seven hours a day.  And we wonder why no-one can grasp or is even interested in what is really happening in the world today?
Television in fair and balanced hands, could have become one of the best things to ever enlighten mankind.  A means to both inform and inspire but instead, it has been developed as both a weapon of mass distraction, deception, and destruction!  A weapon that the Zionist banksters have owned and controlled from the very beginning.  Everything it broadcasts, is from a Zionist perspective. From sitcoms to social dramas, from so-called educational documentaries to the nightly news… a Zionist perspective that is always hidden behind an innocent Jewish front.
No, television has never ‘helped’ the Palestinian, Islamic people, or even the Jewish people, but it has made the Zionist’s job to fool everybody, very easy.  As a result, you never, ever see on TV, anything that is critical of the banksters, Israel or Zionism and if you do hear even a slight piece of truth, it is usually labelled as anti-Semitic or ‘hate speech,’ and dismissed immediately.
There is no open debate on the holocaust, Eisenhower’s death camps, the Zionist-Jewish control of everything, unlawful taxation, the creation of money, wars, you name it…  You will never see any truthful documentaries about the firestorms of Hamburg and Dresden, the holocausts of Nagasaki and Hiroshima or the Rhine Meadows killing-fields or indeed anything at all that does not show Nazi Germany in a bad light and/or the Allies in a good light – period!  Truth and freedom of speech is not the purpose or remit of television, radio or newspapers, or indeed any other means of mass communication.
Television is first, second, third and lastly… all about control of the masses.
John Hamer is a British researcher and author.  His books may be found here.
 
Makow Comment- The organs of mass deception are owned by Cabalist bankers who believe in inverting reality. Thus, society suffers from cognitive dissonance. For example, heterosexual Christian institutions like marriage and family are under relentless vicious attack but this is portrayed as progress, i.e. “sexual liberation,” women’s and gay rights.
The mass media no longer pretends to be truthful, objective or give two sides. We have adopted the Communist model where the “Party” (Masonic Jewish bankers) is always right. For example, the media is parroting the transparent lie that Assad would gas his own people, a flimsy pretext for Western aggression.

1 Thessalonians 5:20
“Despise not prophecies.”
“Lastly, he shall arrive, the most wicked of men, and, helped by the Jews, he will fight against the whole world;”
Prophecies of St. Bridget of Sweden (d. 1373)
This little dynamo of a saint was witness to many visions and revelations. She was very instrumental in Church reforms in the courts, abbeys and episcopal palaces and even with the Holy See. She also founded the Religious Order of the Most Holy Savior. The Secrets of Heaven were manifested to her in her many revelations. She made many pilgrimages to the sanctuaries of Italy and Palestine with her daughter St Catherine.
“The time of Antichrist will be near when the measure of injustice will overflow and when wickedness has grown to immense proportions, when Christians love heresies and the unjust trample underfoot the servants of God.”
“At the end of this age, the Antichrist will be born. As Christ was born from the highest type of womanhood (Virgin), so Antichrist will be born from the lowest (prostitute). He will be a child-wonder at birth. His mother will be an accursed woman, who will pretend to be well informed about spiritual things, and his father an accursed man, from the seed of whom the Devil shall form his work. The time of this Antichrist, well known to Me, will come when iniquity and impiety shall above measure abound, when injustice shall have filled the measure to overflowing, and wickedness shall have grown to immeasurable proportions.
It is not in the time described by the brother whose books, thou has seen. Before, however, Antichrist arrives, the gate of Faith will be opened to some nations, and Scripture shall be verified. People without intelligence will glorify Me, and deserts shall be inhabited. Hence, when many Christians will be lovers of heresies, and wicked men will persecute the clergy and trample spirituality and justice under foot, this should be the sign that Antichrist shall come without delay.”
” Lastly, he shall arrive, the most wicked of men, and, helped by the Jews, he will fight against the whole world; he will reign during three years, and shall have dominion over the whole earth; he will make every effort to abolish from the earth the Christian name, and very many Christians shall be killed.”

PRESIDENT TRUMP OPTS FOR MIGA by Tom Mysiewicz

PRESIDENT TRUMP OPTS FOR MIGA

by
Tom Mysiewicz
 

I gave him the benefit of the doubt but President Trump–with his unprovoked, probably illegal (under the UN Charter and other international law) and possibly un-Constitutional attack on Syria–has made his policy orientation crystal clear: his real intention is to Make ISRAEL Great Again (MIGA.)  Although I hoped to be proven wrong, this change was predicted by me in articles such as the following:http://www.boldfacenews.com/has-america-been-punked/

http://www.renegadetribune.com/brexit-bucket-cold-water/

At this point I’m wondering if  Hillary was created as an ogre to stampede middle-class Americans into voting Trump and if the attacks and the outrageous anti-Trump propaganda in the media were designed to garner sympathy for Trump and support for American involvement in the partition of Iraq and Syria (and very likely direct involvement in a coming Israeli attack on Lebanon, which itself is destined to become part of “Eretz” or greater Israel under the Yinon Plan?)  Bloomberg News, which has lead the charge against Trump, today spoke glowingly of Trump’s “first term”!

With this attack, without even a flimsy pretense under international law except some unproven appeals to RTP (responsibility to protect,) President Trump has finished off the world order created after WWII and, quite possibly, finished off another chunk of the U.S. Constitution.  Don’t hold your breath for the Democrats to hold him to account for bypassing Congress.  Most of them also gave Bibi Netanyahu standing ovations and enjoy the support of organized Zionist interests.  They will do little or nothing unless there is another 2013-like groundswell of public opinion against the machinations of the Neocons.

To find out where this is all going to end, I suggest two of my articles:

(1) “Chess in the Age of ISIS”
http://thesaker.is/chess-in-the-age-of-isis/

and

(2) “War With ISIS: Multiplexing a New World Order”

Illuminati Jews Double Cross Americans Once Again
 
  by Lynda
 
 
 
It is impossible to have any reality based opinion on the subject of The Political unless one has studied The Protocols of the Elders of Zion as the template of Revolutionary history.
Of Trump, it should  be clear to the White nationalists like Smoloko that they have been played. Now is the time to reach out.
Protocol 12:11. “We shall set up our own, to all appearances opposition, which at least in one of it organs will present what looks like the very antipodes to us.  Our real opponents at heart will accept this simulated opposition as their own and will show us their cards.”
It was essential to create the Trump phenomenon to identify the opposition to the globalist project at the grassroots in the American ZOG.  The Owners are now much better acquainted with their ‘homegrown’ opposition.  Trump has served this purpose so now he can nail his colours to the mast.
Zionism is definitely one of the infernal columns of the war that is shaping up. . The Jews who think they will have some kind of victory under the ideology of Theodore ‘the Jews must suffer more’ Herzl are delusional.  The Gentiles who think that ZOG can be can reformed by democratic means or that some form of White nationalism can rival that of The Crown and the Judaic supremacy are even more so.  People need an organization that recognizes and respects the identity of national heritage but is not based on it.
———
The USSR, the Nazi national socialism, the USSA/EUSSR were all precursors of the Revolution (inaugurated 1789) in its global, totalitarian phase.  This would be Communism proper as set out in Marx’s vol 3 of The Kapital. In the USSR and National Socialist model – the Owners own the state and administer the bank through the state.  In the latter model of USSA monopoly capitalism, the Owners own the bank which administers the state. Two models created by the same architect/s.
In the Communist phase what is needed to globally consolidate the wealth of all national assets are world wars.  Who owns the Bank of Russia?  Does the Russian state own the BoR or do the Owners of the Bank of International Settlements?  When we look at post USSR Russia vs the Zionist imperium: GOG and the ZOGs what we are seeing is the Grand Chessboard alignment that has been organised by the Masonic Agentur for WWIII.  The take-out of 7 nations in 5 years mandate, of which General Wesley Clark spoke in his famous interview, is one of the possible flashpoints. The Ukraine is another.  The gold backed Russian and Chinese currencies are another.
