Independence Day: Just Another Day for the “Patriotic” Masses to Worship the Military

NINTCHDBPICT000502771527

I’ve noticed over the years, especially over the past couple of years since Donald Trump has become president, the unabashed WORSHIP of the military on Independence Day. Since when has this day been about the commemoration of the standing army that our Founding Fathers vehemently warned us about? I have to say, at the risk of sounding like a liberal, I find Trump’s “Salute to America” military parade pretty nauseating and a total waste of taxpayer money. Today is about remembering the birth of this nation, the separation from the tyranny of England, and the principles and ideals of liberty. It’s about remembering the great men that put everything on the line for their posterity so that each citizen could be a sovereign king or queen in his or her right. It was never about the military. This stunt in Washington D.C. today is just another way that our government is thumbing its nose at the world and showing off its military capabilities on full display as if to say: “Who can make war against the Beast?” In reality, it’s all about government supremacy. How ironic it is that a holiday that is supposed to be a celebration of secession from statists and standing armies has now morphed into something that is all about statism and standing armies.

Stop perverting the Independence Day holiday. It’s not about the military and it never was. If what I wrote above angers you, then you have fallen for the politically correct form of patriotism that is prevalent in modern-day America. You are drinking out of a large pitcher of Kool-Aid flavored with red, white, and blue bullshit, and I suggest you put it down and wake up.

They Risked Everything

1200px-Declaration_of_Independence_(1819),_by_John_Trumbull

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons in the revolutionary army, another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the revolutionary war.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

What kind of men were they? Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners, men of means, well educated. But they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers or both, looted the properties of Ellery, Clymer, Hall, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. The owner quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished. A few weeks later he died from exhaustion and a broken heart. Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates.

These men risked everything, some of them losing everything including their lives. How many people in America today have even half of the guts that these great men had? Our sense of rebellion and fire for liberty is being bred out of our DNA these days. Apathy and ignorance have gained a stranglehold on our population today. To be a patriot now in America means to wear an American flag shirt once a year and pop fireworks. An ignoble population now lives comfortably ignorant and enslaved, all while giving up the fruits that our Founders fought and bled for. It literally costs nothing to be “patriotic” in America today. But in 1776, it cost them everything. We owe a serious debt to these men.

Seriously, how many of you have the guts to risk everything, to forsake the comforts of this life, to forsake your homes, your possessions, your wealth, and your families to fight a guerilla war against those that are actively trying to take away your liberty and enslave you and your posterity? How many of you would leave everything behind to live in the woods with just your rifle and your provisions for an extended period of time? Americans have grown soft over the generations. They lack the grit and testicular fortitude that it took to go up against the most powerful empire and standing military of the time. There’s only a handful of us left that are truly ready to do what our ancestors had to do. I find comfort and hope that it only took a handful, 3-5% of the total population, to win independence from Great Britian. I’m afraid, however, that in the not so distant future we will find out who is ready and willing. There will come a terminal point in the next few years, and every single American will have no choice but to decide how much they are willing to risk in order to be free. Something to think about.

Happy Independence Day.

Question everything the government and the media are telling you about this drone shot down today. They are building a case to act militarily against Iran. How do we know this wasn’t in Iranian airspace, and if it was, do you not think that the U.S. or Israel would do the same thing? But it’s okay if the U.S. does it to other countries, right? Also, question Iran, they’re not innocent either. It has been revealed that the picture released by the Iranian government of the drone going down is actually a two-year-old photograph from Yemen.

Iran Shoots Down U.S. Drone – Tehran Warns Washington Has ‘Crossed Red Line’

Older article but still relevant. Remember, every Middle Eastern country that has dumped the U.S. dollar has met the wrath of America’s military forces.

https://www.rt.com/news/425497-iran-drops-dollar-war/

Only 3 countries left without a Rothschild controlled central bank. Iran is one of them. When NATO went into Libya in 2011, a Rothschild central bank was quickly established right after Gaddafi’s government was overthrown. Do the math, study history. It’s repeating.

There Are Only 3 Countries In The World Without A Rothschild Owned Central Bank…

Patriots, it’s time to wake up to the fraud in the White House and admit that you’ve been had:

A VERY SPECIAL MESSAGE TO THE PATRIOT MOVEMENT: Donald Trump is NOT who we thought he was

Folks, Iran is not Iraq. This is not going to be something that will be over within a month, then see the president in a leather bomber jacket with a “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED” banner hanging over the carrier deck. This will be a very costly and destabilizing war. Many of our troops will be coming home in flag-draped coffins if this happens. I predict that the casualties will be unlike anything we have seen since Vietnam. Though the U.S. will most likely win, Iran has a very strong military that is backed up by Russia and will put up a fight.

https://www.globalfirepower.com/country-military-strength-detail.asp?country_id=iran

Again, I admonish all military age men and women to stay away from the recruiting offices. They are going to send you off to die as cannon fodder in order to make the ultimate sacrifice to their pagan gods. Protect your youth and protect your lives. They are going to send you into battle for an unworthy cause. War is a racket.

DO NOT ENLIST.

Anybody who is cheerleading this war but yet has nothing invested in it, including the politicians and administration cabinet members, all I have to say to you is that you are COWARDS. If you’re willing to send somebody else’s son or daughter off to war, you had better be prepared to go yourself. That means you, John Bolton, you draft dodging piece of garbage. I doubt you people would be so eager for war if you were the first one into battle.

Also, just imagine if the tables were turned and Hillary Clinton was president. I wonder how many “patriots” would be up in arms right now about going to war with Iran? Again, I’ll I hear are crickets.

WordPress Suppressing View Count

So I’ve noticed a pattern whenever I write about Israel, Zionism, or the wars in the Middle East; my view count drops off completely. Now I would chalk this up as a coincidence except for the fact that it happens EVERY time I write about these subjects. And I know people are reading my blog because I’ve just picked up two more subscribers within the last 12 hours. Sorry WordPress, but you’re not going to censor or suppress me. I’m on to you fools, and your antics just confirm that I’m hitting the mark with what I’m saying on this blog. Like I’ve said before, I will not be censored by the Zuckerberg Ziofascist tech gurus. You can kick me off this site, but I’ve backed up all posts and will make another site. You will not silence me, you will not run me off. As long as I have an internet connection and as long as the government is keeping the web online, I will continue to speak out against this tyranny.

6/19/19 Newslinks and Commentary on the Rapture, Zionism, End-Times, 501c3 “Churches”

rapturehatch

I’m going to go on a tangent here, because I just can’t be silent on this issue that greatly needs to be addressed regarding modern American Christians, Israel, and the end-times. I recommend reading this article first:

Rapture Christian Pompeo Believes US War on Iran Would Be Helping Out God

These Zionist “Christians” like Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are extremely dangerous and a threat to the entire world. They believe that they can “help” God and the Second Coming of Christ by starting Armageddon in the Middle East. These people are the real threat to humanity, not Iran. They are willing to spill so much blood in the name of Israel in order to “speed up the Second Coming”, as if God needs any help from man. These Zionist zealots falsely believe that they are doing God’s work, but are really in the service of Satan’s legions on earth. They think they will be spared of Judgement, but boy they will be surprised. On a side note, I used to subscribe to this false Zionist belief system in my late teens and early 20’s. It was part of the reason why I joined the military when I left high school. Like Pompeo said, I wanted to do my part and “get in the fight”. I went to a Zionist church when I was a teenager and I distinctly remember the pastor telling the congregation that a great battle between Christians and Muslims would ensue before the Rapture would come. This was after 9/11, probably around 2002-03 or so. It was only through the Grace of God that I found the truth that this is probably Satan’s greatest deception that is being played against American evangelicals. Most American Christians are overjoyed when they see the state of the world today. They believe that Jesus is coming back soon and that they will all be “raptured” out of the world before the Great Tribulation. I’ve come to find out that most people propagating this doctrine are highly degreed Freemasons that have infiltrated the churches including many pastors themselves. There is much evidence that Tim LaHaye, one of the authors of the popular Left Behind series of books, was a Freemason and used a lot of Masonic symbolism on the covers of his books including the cross and the crown. Not to mention all the Left Behind movies were all released on Satanic holidays. Coincidence? I think not.

More links about Tim LaHaye’s Masonic symbolism and the Left Behind series:

https://libertytothecaptives.net/tim_lahaye.html

https://watch.pairsite.com/lahaye.html

Folks, read the Word for yourselves and do not let these pastors and authors do your thinking for you. Remember what Jesus said in Matthew 24:36:

“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” Matthew 24:36 KJV

And again in Acts 1:6-7:

“When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom of Israel?

And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.”

You see folks, it is not for us to know. We do not know when this is going to happen and there’s is not a person on earth that can even pretend to know or prophesy when this will all take place. Turn off Trinity Broadcasting Network, John Hagee, and all these other “end-times prophets”. They don’t know anything and I firmly believe that they are playing a role to pacify Christians in order to get them docile so they will not resist en masse the coming New World Order. Those that practice the hidden religion of Mystery Babylon absolutely hate all Christians. I have read several of their own books and writings and they make no bones about what they want to do in order to “perfect humanity” for the future world. In the New World Order, Christians will either renounce Christ and bow down to whatever anti-Christ world leader they present to them, or they will be exterminated. These people were behind all of the revolutions in Europe since the French Revolution. Their track record can be measured by the length of the rivers of blood they let flow throughout history. I don’t understand why spoiled rotten American Christians believe that they will be spared of tribulation. There are millions of Christians across the globe that are under tribulation right this very second. What about the Christians that are being slaughtered in the Middle East, or the Christians in Sudan? What about the Christians in China? What about the early Christians that were fed to the lions in the Roman colosseums? Did God not love those Christians? What makes American Christians believe that they will be spared? I find it very arrogant for us to believe that we’ll be spared of tribulation while those across the world are under great tribulation right now. Fellow Christians, it’s time to wake up!

I would also like to mention that one of the only righteous pastors in America that is teaching the truth about this false Zionist dispensationalism theology is Pastor Chuck Baldwin in Kalispell, Montana. You can go to his website here:

https://chuckbaldwinlive.com/

I first discovered Pastor Baldwin in 2014 when I was thoroughly done attending these so-called “churches” that dot the landscape across America. He was the first preacher that I’ve ever heard openly speak out against the New World Order at his pulpit. Much of his research on these subjects mirrored my research and I greatly admire that the man has the guts to talk about it during his sermons. I’ve discovered through Pastor Baldwin that most churches are 501c3 non-profit organizations and are actually recognized as corporations via the IRS. They are government churches and they put the state above God in order to get a kick back from Uncle Sam. Since they contracted with Uncle Sam, they have to follow his rules, so there are certain things that pastors of these 501c3 “churches” cannot talk about at their pulpits. They are leaving their congregations in the dark, and I echo what Pastor Baldwin says about them; these pastors are cowards and they’ve sold not only their congregations out but their entire country through their muzzled silence in order to get their Babylonian shekels via an IRS tax-exemption. Chuck Baldwin states emphatically that the preachers in America are greatly at fault for the national abandonment of the Natural Law principles that this country was founded on. I firmly agree with Pastor Baldwin when he states that if pastors would quit being silenced by giving up their 1st Amendment by the 501c3 muzzle, then we could turn this country around for the better. Just imagine if most Christians in America understood the truth instead of the lies and propaganda that spews out of the mouths from the likes of John Hagee, Jerry Falwell Jr., Joel Osteen, and Rick Warren. Christians would truly be a force to reckon with. Instead, most of them are pacified, liberalized, feminized, and unarmed spiritually, mentally, and physically to deal with what is coming.

Ron Paul: No one believes Pompeo on Iran attack… And why should we? Remember, this great “Christian” man bragged, “We lied, we cheated, we stole…”

Mark my words, we keep going down this road we are going to see a day when pedophilia will be normalized and regarded as merely a “sexual orientation”. Pedophiles will be openly marching in the streets demanding their “rights” like you’re seeing with the LGBT community. Don’t think it won’t happen.

More families demanding an independent investigation about the Virginia Beach shooting. They’re not buying it. I’m sure they smell a rat:

I smell a cover-up:

Am I the only person that wonders why there so much convolution surrounding these mass shootings? Why everything is so tight lipped and the public always left scratching their heads. And there’s never a motive found. Gee, I wonder why? Maybe we should ask the CIA.

 

A Question For Everyone to Ponder…

EF-VDC-00035(Black)

Why is the Jewish Holocaust the only genocide we are taught about in school? As a child, I went to the public school system much to the detriment of my education. It took me many years to realize that public “education” is really just government indoctrination designed to create a society and a future of people that are just smart enough to be consigned to live as mere worker bees in order to pay their taxes to their slave masters in government. Original thought and innovation is detrimental to those that belong to the ruling class. Remember, our nation was a product and the culmination of the Enlightenment era. It was called “The Great Experiment” and our Founders looked up to men such as John Locke and Baron de Montesquieu. The principles of our Declaration of Independence and Constitution were directly inspired by these men as well as others from the Enlightenment era. Enlightenment is not what our rulers want today, for true enlightenment would once again give rise to rebellion among the people, thus leading to the overthrow of the ruling class. Vladimir Lenin, the leader of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia said:

“Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world.”

There is so much truth to that statement looking at my generation of young people. I look at my peers and I see a thoroughly indoctrinated generation of unquestioning automatons who do not think for themselves nor have any original thought. Some of us fell through the cracks, though we are not the norm and we often find ourselves in a Twilight Zone living amongst the walking dead. It was by the grace of God that I came to terms with the reality of our world by the time I turned 25. Most of my graduating high school class will live their entire lives sound asleep, caught up in the activities of their daily lives, never contemplating anything outside the realm of which keeps their matrix intact. They fall in love, marry, have children, then take Junior to basketball practice while the hidden hand steers the ship, never realizing the course that has been set nor even realizing that the ship is sinking. Some of them may be politically active, but almost all of them will fall into the camp in which they were indoctrinated to support. They will regurgitate the talking points and views of their side and vote accordingly. Like their parents and grandparents before them, the cycle continues. This simple fact proves the effectiveness and insidious stealth of the Silent Weapons that have been used against the American population over the years.

I’m digressing a bit here, so I want to get back to my original question. Why were we only taught in school about the German atrocities against the Jewish people from 1933-1945? That was the only mass genocide that was ever mentioned when I went to school. I was taught that Stalin and Soviet Russia was our ally and helped us tremendously during World War II. Why were we never taught about the atrocities carried out by the Russian communists, the Chinese communists, the Cambodian communists, the Polish communists, ect? Why were we never taught anything about Stalin’s purges, mass starvation in China under Mao’s Agrarian Reform, or the mountains of skulls piled up by Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge? The mass murder carried out during the Holocaust is a drop in the bucket compared to the mass murder carried out under the red banner of communism, but yet only the Holocaust gets any recognition. Does anybody know why? I welcome your comments, I want to hear what my readers have to say.

News and Headlines 6/17/19

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is a real gem: “When I was the CIA director, we lied, we cheated, we stole…” This man is the most disgusting individual in Trump’s cabinet, maybe John Bolton being a close second. And for him to say that it reminds of him of the American Experiment is infuriating. Sorry sir, but the American Experiment was built upon the virtues of liberty, honor, and the Natural Law, things that you and your scum sucking ilk are completely devoid of. This man calls himself a “Christian” and supposedly keeps a Bible on his desk. Mike Pompeo is a lying deceiving Zionist hypocrite whose actions completely counter the virtues that Christ taught. Remember that when you hear him speak.

In Our Hands

clutches_dees1

This article was originally published by Joseph Sobran on June 13, 1996, in response to Ari Shavit’s article published in the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz and the New York Times titled How Easily We Killed Them. I will post both articles here along with their original links. If you have any doubts that Zionism and the Israeli Lobby have enormous clout within the U.S. government and the media, these two articles will make you think otherwise. Even though both of these articles were written 23 years ago, they are still relevant to today’s situation.

I will start with Ari Shavit’s orginal article How Easily We Killed Them that talks about the slaughter of 170 Lebanese civilians in 1996:

We killed 170 people in Lebanon last month. Most were refugees. A good number were women, children and the elderly. Nine civilians, including a 2-year-old and a 100-year-old man, were killed at Sachmor, a village. Eleven civilians, including seven children, were killed at Nabatiyeh, a town. At the United Nations compound at Qana, a village, 102 were killed. We killed all these people not in a fit of inflamed passion, not because of messianic extremism or nationalist fervor.

We killed them under the umbrella of a peace campaign. Under the leadership of a peace Government and in the midst of an election campaign that features peace. We killed them so that peace could be re-elected. We killed them because our peace coalition needed to prove it is just as tough as the opposition.

How easily we killed them — without shedding a tear, without establishing a commission of inquiry, without filling the streets with protest demonstrations. And without the carnage claiming a place as an election issue.

It would seem we have matured quite a bit, for this time we shot and did not weep. This time, we killed with yuppie efficiency. We were meticulous in our cold calculations and matter-of-fact considerations. Meticulous in emptying out the villages in an orderly, precise manner. Meticulous in killing only from a distance. And we did it all in a secular way — ignoring the archaic concepts of sin, of God’s image, of “Thou shalt not kill.”

Our one big alibi was this: The responsibility is not our own; it is Hezbollah’s. But this is a somewhat bogus alibi. For when we decided to carry out a large-scale offensive in civilian regions in southern Lebanon (at a time when no mortal danger was posed to Israel), we decided in fact to spill the blood of X number of civilians. When we decided to remove half a million people from their homes and to shell those remaining behind (at a time when in Israel there was not a single civilian victim), we decided in fact to execute dozens.

What allowed us to make such cruel decisions without perceiving ourselves as scoundrels was their anonymous, statistical character. For we did not know that we would kill precisely that mother in Nabatiyeh and her seven children, all buried under the ruins of their home. We did not know we would kill precisely the three children of the Diib family and five children of the Belhas family, whose parents harbored the mistaken belief that the United Nations site at Qana would protect them from us.

All we knew was that a large-scale killing of civilians was inseparable from the futuristic combat style the Israel Defense Forces have chosen. All we knew was that it could be assumed that the operation would kill 100 civilians, give or take a few.

Still, it is important to be precise. We did not kill them with prior intent. We killed them because it was not important for us not to kill them. Because the yawning gap between the unlimited sacrosanct importance we attribute to our own lives and the very limited sacred character we attribute to the lives of others allowed us to kill them.

We killed them out of a certain naive hubris. Believing with absolute certitude that now, with the White House, the Senate and much of the American media in our hands, the lives of others do not count as much as our own. Believing we really have the right to instruct 400,000 people to leave their homes within eight hours. And that we have the right, when those eight hours have passed, to treat their homes as military targets. And that we have the right to drop 16,000 shells on their villages and small towns. And that we have the right to kill without being guilty. (Emphasis Mine. This admission should make you sick. He’s telling the whole world that the U.S. government does not belong to We the People, but instead the Zionist State of Israel. This is why we have a “Right to alter or to abolish” this government to quote the words of Jefferson written in the Declaration of Independence. We must restore our Constitutional Republic and kick these Zionists out of the halls of our government, media, and especially our churches. Most Christians in America falsely revere the State of Israel to the point of elevating it above our own country. This is based on false dispensationalist theology that has been promoted over the last 100 years and is now firmly rooted within just about every evangelical church across America. He stated that the lives of the civilians they slaughtered do not count as much as their own. Zionism at its core is all about racial superiority. They believe that they are “God’s chosen people”. When I read this filth, I can’t help but think of what Hitler said about the Aryan race. It’s the same thing! And I will call it out as such and I don’t care if this gets me labeled as “anti-semitic”. Israel hides its Zionist philosophy and war crimes behind the cloak of Judaism and the Holocaust.)

An Israeli massacre can be distinguished in most respects from an Arab massacre in that it is not malicious, not carried out on orders from High Above and does not serve any strategic purpose. It contrasts with Israel’s declared national policy and its accepted cultural norms. Yet, while these distinctions are valid they mitigate neither the gravity of the massacre nor our responsibility. For an Israeli massacre usually occurs after we sanction an unjustifiable degree of violence so that at some point we lose the ability to control that violence. Thus, in most cases, an Israeli massacre is a kind of work accident. Such was the case in Qana.

The mortars and Katyushas that caused us to kill 102 people were fired 12 minutes before we killed them. Twelve minutes is a very long time on the battlefield. It is enough time to look at the map and see that the place from which the Katyushas were fired was some 300 yards from a large United Nations compound. Enough time to clarify whether this camp, like most, was being used by dozens or hundreds of refugees. Enough time to recall that for days U.N. officers had warned that shells were landing too close.

Enough time to recall that, despite its great sophistication, our radar has problems precisely identifying the spot from which Katyushas are fired. Enough time to recall that the margin of error for the first shellings in a series by our howitzers is well over 1,000 feet. Thus, 12 minutes is more than enough time to think twice and conclude that the prospect of firing at Qana and hitting only Hezbollah fighters is relatively slight, whereas the prospect of shelling Qana and harming hundreds of innocent civilians is much too great.

Twelve minutes is enough time to expose the fact that if the shelling was carried out according to the procedures and orders of Operation Grapes of Wrath, something must have been deeply wrong with those procedures and orders. Something not completely humane. Something bordering on the criminal.

But the system worked extremely well. The public backed the media, which backed the Government, which backed the Israel Defense Forces’ Chief of Staff, who backed the review officer, who backed the commanders, who backed the soldiers who fired the three rounds of shells that killed 102 people at Qana.

With the election not far off, neither the peace movements, nor the human rights activists, nor the left-of-center press rocked the boat and presented the military-political complex with harsh questions that needed to be asked. What would have been unthinkable during the years the peace elite was in the opposition now occurred without a murmur of protest.

It was very important to us that the victims stay faceless, nameless people. People who are quite unreal. Who had the misfortune of finding themselves on the wrong side of our superior technology? Who had the misfortune of finding themselves on the wrong side of our Jewish and democratic values? Who had only the blue-clad soldiers from the Fiji Islands to collect them into body bags.

So now Qana is part of our biography. Precisely because we have tried to deny and ignore the outrage, it remains affixed to us. And just as the Baruch Goldstein massacre of praying Muslims in Hebron and the murder of Yitzhak Rabin were extreme manifestations of some rotten seed planted in the religious-nationalist culture, it now seems that the massacre at Qana was an extreme manifestation of rotten seeds dormant in our secular Israeli culture: Cynicism. Arrogance. Egocentrism of the strong. A penchant to blur the distinction between good and bad, the allowed and the forbidden. A tendency not to demand justice, not to be adamant about the truth. Eighteen years ago, I happened to be in Qana. It was no big deal — only a limited military action. First, we shot at the village with machine guns, then we entered in one column of armored vehicles and two columns of infantry. Finally, we found three terrorist youths and stormed them in the most idiotic way possible, losing two of our own.

I have not stopped thinking about Qana. Its place is in our lives. Our lives are in it. I recall how we appeared on its horizon in 1978, leaving some casualties behind and vanishing. And then we came back.

In Our Hands

By Joseph Sobran

   One isn’t supposed to say this, but many people believe that Israel now holds the White House, the Senate, and much of the American media in its hands. This is what is known as an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.

    The odd thing is that it is held by many Israelis. In an essay reprinted in the May 27, 1996, issue of the New York Times Ari Shavit, an Israeli columnist, reflected sorrowfully on the wanton Israeli killing of more than a hundred Lebanese civilians in April. “We killed them out of a certain naive hubris. Believing with absolute certitude that now, with the White House, the Senate, and much of the American media in our hands, the lives of others do not count as much as our own….”

   In a single phrase — “in our hands” — Mr. Shavit has lit up the American political landscape like a flash of lightning.

   Notice that Mr. Shavit assumes as an obvious fact what we Americans can say publicly only at our own risk. It’s surprising, and refreshing, to find such candor in an American newspaper (though his essay was reprinted from the Israeli paper Ha’aretz).

   The prescribed cant on the subject holds that Israel is a “reliable ally” of the United States, despite Israel’s long record of double-dealing against this country, ranging from the killing of American sailors to constant espionage and technology theft. The word ally implies that the relationship exists because it’s in the interests of this country, though Israel’s lobby is clearly devoted to the interests of Israel itself, and it’s childish to suggest otherwise.

   You expect that from the Israel lobby; lobbies are lobbies, after all. But it’s unnerving that the White House, the Senate, and much of the American media should be “in our hands,” as Mr. Shavit puts it. Bill Clinton, a lover of peace since his college days, raised no protest when the Israelis drove 400,000 innocent Lebanese out of their homes this year in “retaliation” for rockets launched into Israel (wounding one Israeli) by a faction over whom those 400,000 had no control.

   Congress of course, was supine as usual at this latest extravagance of Israeli “defense.” Congress too is “in our hands.”

   A recent article in the Washington Post likened the Israel lobby’s power to that of the gun and tobacco lobbies. But there is one enormous difference. Newspapers like the Post aren’t afraid to criticize the gun and tobacco lobbies. They will say forthrightly that those lobbies seek goals that are dangerous for this country. They don’t dare say as much of the Israel lobby.

   But much of the press and electronic media are “in our hands” in a more active sense: they supply misleading pro-Israel propaganda in the guise of news and commentary, constantly praising Israeli democracy and ignoring Israel’s mistreatment of its non-Jewish minorities — mistreatment which, if any government inflicted it on a Jewish minority, would earn it the fierce opprobrium of our media.

   No decent American would think of reducing American Jews to the status of Palestinians in Israel. The idea is almost absurd. Yet Americans are taxed to subsidize the oppression of Palestinians, on the flimsy pretext that they are helping an “ally” in America’s own self-interest, as if it were in our interest to be hated and despised by the whole Muslim world.

   All this is interesting less for what it tells us about Israel than for what it tells us about America. Frank discussion of Israel is permitted in Israel, as Mr. Shavit’s article illustrates. It’s rarely permitted here. Charges of anti-Semitism and a quiet but very effective boycott will be the reward of any journalist who calls attention to his own government’s — and his own profession’s — servitude to Israeli interests.

   Very few in America are doing anything to change that sorry state of affairs. Mr. Shavit wrote his article in the desperate hope of turning back his countrymen and his government from a morally and politically perilous course. At least he can hope. It’s harder for us, when our own government isn’t in our hands.

Iran Persian Gulf Tensions

Oil tankers torpedoed in the Gulf of Oman. This will be blamed on Iran in 3… 2… 1…

Jared Kushner and Mike Pompeo at the elite’s Bilderberg meeting in Switzerland. Are you surprised? Jared Kushner reminds me of Edward Mandell House the senior advisor of President Woodrow Wilson. He never speaks but is always standing there in the background with a insidious look.

Remember what I’ve been saying over the past month, folks. They’re going to do something in the Gulf and make it look like Iran did it. Do not believe Trump, Bolton, Pompeo or any of these lying warmongers in the government. They are itching to start a new war with Iran to accomodate Israel’s wishes. Iran would not benefit from firing the first shots. Remember, the U.S. and Israel must present themselves as having the moral high ground. No major war has ever been started without the U.S. or its interests being attacked first, either by provocation such as the case of Pearl Harbor and the Japanese or by false-flag like the Gulf of Tonkin and 9/11. Remember the USS Liberty, a Navy ship that was set up by President Lyndon Johnson and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara to be sunk by unmarked Israeli aircraft in order to frame the Egyptians and thus gain public support to go to war alongside Israel against the Arabs in 1967. Only by the grace of God did their machinations fail. Johnson was seeking reelection in 1968 and needed to gain popularity via a new conflict even though Vietnam was in full swing. Bush did the same thing with Iraq in 2003. Historically, wars have been used to bolster a president before reelection. Next year is an election year and history is repeating itself.

This is the question that everybody needs to ask about the oil tankers in the Gulf: WHO BENEFITS? Read this article:

https://news.yahoo.com/iran-little-gain-oman-tanker-093901847.html

“There is another group that will benefit from the incident – the people who want to see the U.S. step up its campaign against Iran and move from an economic war to a military one. There are plenty of those, both in the U.S. and among its allies in the Persian Gulf and wider Middle East regions.”

You see, I’m not the only one saying it.

 

News and Headlines for 6/12/19

I’m going to start adding news links along with my commentary to this blog on a regular basis. We live in perilous times so I will do my best to share intel as often as I can.

Federal spending tops $3 trillion in May for fiscal year 2019. So do you Trumpsters still believe he’s a “conservative”?

It’s amazing that even a warmonger like Sen. Lindsey Graham is rebuking Trump’s emergency declaration to send the Saudi’s arms. He voted along with other Senators to block the deal. Seriously, Congress needs to impeach and remove this would-be emperor from office (not that Pence would be any better). Trump is dangerous not only to our freedom but to the stability of an already volatile Middle East. We are on a collision course with World War III if this continues.

Virginia Beach victim decided it would be best to forsake her Natural Right to self-defense in order to comply with the city’s gun free zone and paid for it with her life. How many other people in America are currently 6 feet under for following the same bullshit rules? And why are there so many conflicting reports on the perpetrator? Is the Virginia Beach city managers trying to cover something up? Hmm…

Your masters want you in a state of perpetual fear. Fear of the world ending from ‘climate change’, or nuclear war, ect. A fearful public is more willing to give up their liberties in exchange for security. Society is still living in a state of Millennium Fever. Most Christians are expecting the “Rapture” to happen any day now. We truly live in the Age of Deception.

We’re in an age of ‘apocalypse anxiety’ and will never stop worrying about doomsday

More trash from the Masonic controlled entertainment industry to distract the herd and turn their moral compass upside down. Seriously, why would anybody let this sewer pipe into their homes? Dear Christians, why do you watch Game of Thrones??

Don’t forget that Julian Assange is rotting in a cell while Trump, who once hailed WikiLeaks, is now trying to extradite him from the UK and pursue espionage charges.

Yeah, Israel “has a right to defend itself”… By bulldozing homes, slaughtering Palestinians, and annexing land in violation of just about every UN resolution, treaty, and international law. But the U.S. supports them, so I guess it’s OK.
