JEWS AROUND THE WORLD PROTEST ISRAEL
One of the largest demonstrations is taking place in Tel Aviv. A fundamental piece of Israeli propaganda is that all Jews, around the world, support all of the actions of the Israeli government. Not only is that not true, but it isn't even true in Israel.
All people with a conscience decry the wanton slaughter of innocents, no matter who they are. So, today, in cities around the world, Jews are saying “enough”. Despite the best efforts of our respective government masters, there are good people and bad people in all walks of life. That includes Arabs, Jews, Palestinians, Russians and Americans.

Jews Stage Massive Anti-War Protests In Tel Aviv, New York and Elsewhere
Posted on July 26, 2014 by WashingtonsBlog
Opposing Israeli Policy Does Not Make One a “Self-Hating Jew”
A huge anti-war protest is being held tonight by Jews in Tel Aviv:
(Jews and Palestinians have been holding anti-war protests throughout Israel, but the mainstream media has refused to cover them.)
Jews also protested the Gaza war in New York City yesterday:
Anti-war protests have also been held in other cities throughout the world.
Indeed, many Jews oppose Israeli treatment of the Palestinians:
Postscript: Many devoutly religious Jews oppose Zionism. So opposing an Israeli policy does not make anti-Semitic … or a “self-hating Jew“.
And we salute Israelis protesting against the war, especially since dissent may subject them to death threats.

ISRAEL GOBBLES UP ADJACENT LAND
Since Israel became a nation in 1948, that government has been in a non stop program to expand its' borders and take over land belonging to their neighbors. The ongoing invasion of Gaza is nothing more than a continuation of a policy that is as old as the nation itself.
The subject article and map show this. The reasons and excuses for continual war never end, but a look at the land grab over the past 60 plus years, shows the real reason. Most in the Israeli government believe they have a god given right to the land occupied by ancient Israel under Solomon. Well, this Israel is not, in any way, related to that Israel and Netanyahu is no Solomon.

Israel Creates ‘No Man’s Land’ in Gaza, Shrinking Strip by 40 Percent
To protect itself from Hamas rockets and tunnels, Israel is forcing tens of thousands of people out of their homes, turning their old neighborhoods into a no-man’s land.
BEIT HANOUN, Gaza — This narrow strip of land that used to be called “the Gaza Strip,” already one of the more densely populated places on Earth, is growing dramatically smaller. The Israeli military, relentlessly and methodically, is driving people out of the 3-kilometer (1.8 mile) buffer zone it says it needs to protect against Hamas rockets and tunnels. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the buffer zone eats up about 44 percent of Gaza’s territory.
What that means on the ground is scenes of extraordinary devastation in places like the Al Shajaya district approaching Gaza’s eastern frontier, and Beit Hanoun in the north. These were crowded neighborhoods less than three weeks ago. Now they have been literally depopulated, the residents joining more than 160,000 internally displaced people in refuges and makeshift shelters. Apartment blocks are fields of rubble, and as I move through this hostile landscape the phrase that keeps ringing in my head is “scorched earth.”
It’s not like Israel didn’t plan this. It told tens of thousands of Palestinians to flee so its air force, artillery and tanks could create this uninhabitable no-man’s land of half-standing, burned-out buildings, broken concrete and twisted metal. During a brief humanitarian ceasefire some Gazans were able to come back to get their first glimpse of the destruction this war has brought to their communities, and to sift through their demolished homes to gather clothes or other scattered bits of their past lives. But many were not even able to do that.
When Rania Haels got within 60 feet of the debris that was once her family home in Al Shajaya on Saturday, a machine-gun on top of a nearby Israeli Merkava tank started firing. Probably these were warning shots pumped in her direction, but the 42-year-old mother of seven ran for her life. Now she stays with her family in an overcrowded parking garage in Gaza City and spends her days sitting in a public park full of refugees displaced by the Israeli push. Normally these would be festive times, the end of Ramadan is at hand and celebrations akin in spirit to Christmas festivities are beginning. But holidays have a way of intensifying tragedy. There is no place for Haels’ family to gather to give gifts and eat Palestinian sweets. There is, in fact, no place for them at all.
“We lost our homes and so now we live in the streets,” said Haels, holding a toddler in her arms who clings to her pastel-patterned hejab. “This war has destroyed me.” She says at least she knew where her home was. Some of her neighbors could not find their homes as they walked down streets made unrecognizable by the wreckage and horrifying by the presence of death.
The desert of demolition only becomes more vast as I get closer to the Israeli border.
Rashid al Delo and his 11 children were, like Haels, blocked by Israeli machine-gun fire when they tried to return to their home near the bombed-out Wafa Hospital in Al Shajaya. But despite the dire reality, al Delo, who used to work in Israel but has been unemployed these last 15 years, is determined to salvage his life.
“We will rebuild Gaza again and again, despite the force of the Israelis,” he said with confidence as he stood below the Gaza City apartment that belongs to his in-laws and houses, now, 30 members of their extended family.
In Beit Hanoun the systematic destruction mirrors Al Shajaya. I walk past old men and teenagers trying to lift cinderblocks and slabs of stucco with their bare hands, sometimes in search of a mattress and other times in search of a relative.
The desert of demolition only becomes more vast as I get closer to the Israeli border. Individually razed homes and stores give way to gray and white plains of obliterated walls with hills of contorted iron bars and broken-up slabs. Here the bodies are hidden under the new landscape and it will take more than a brief pause in fighting to unearth the gruesome extent of the town’s suffering.
“Scorched earth,” historically, means destroying land to deprive the encroaching enemy of its use. Israelis shy away from using the phrase to describe what they are doing because, in Israel, it brings to mind the strategy of the Nazi retreat from Russia at the end of the Second World War.
According to Hebrew University political scientist and longtime analyst of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Yaron Ezrahi, with or without the phrase, the idea does have a certain logic. Ezrahi says there is a military and political calculation behind this devastation. Some in the Israeli government believe it will create enough Palestinian suffering so that Gazans will rise up against Hamas or force the leaders to come to terms with Israel when they come out of hiding.
But that is an assumption that greatly underestimates the resolve of Gazans to see an end to their seven years of Israeli blockade and rid themselves of the Israeli presence that controls the strip like guards positioned around a prison yard.
At the same time, said Ezrahi, the practice of systematically flattening neighborhoods is focused on saving the lives of Israeli soldiers, who might otherwise be more exposed to hit-and-run attacks.
“Israel is more sensitive than any other country in the West to the death of its soldiers,” said Ezrahi. “The death of [Palestinian] civilians is a moral crisis but is without political impact.”

BULLET HOLES FOUND IN MH17 COCKPIT
German experts investigating the cause of the crash of Malaysian jet MH17 have discovered bullet holes having entered and exited the cockpit originating from the outside. They have also found a certain type of shrapnel damage which can only be caused by air to air missiles.
These facts together with eyewitness reports lay the blame for the shoot down at the feet of Ukrainian government forces. In this day and age it is becoming more and more difficult to get away with false flag events. As the facts continue to come out, early suspicions on this being a false flag are being confirmed.

NEW MH17 SENSATION: German experts point finger at Ukrainian air-force jets.
July 28th, 2014
Share1 Tweet7 0 Share0
BY JOHN WARD
Surface to air missile attack ruled out as calibre of cockpit bullet holes puts Ukraine pilots in the frame for MH17 murders
This is what a German pilot-cum-air technology expert Peter Haisenko
has just published on the subject of the MH17 disaster (my emphases):
‘The misfortune of the Malaysian MH 017 is known to all. The flight
recorder is in England and is being evaluated. What can come of this?
May be more than you want to accept….if you look at the image of
Cockpit-Fragments, this picture is certainly shocking.
Entry And Exit holes from bullets in the area of the Cockpit. This is not speculation, but analysis of clear facts: the cockpit
shows clear evidence of bullet holes. You can see the entry holes and
some exit points. The edges of the bullet holes are bent inwards,
these are much smaller and round in shape. A 30mm calibre. The exit
holes are less well formed and the edges are torn outwards.
Furthermore it is visible that the exit holes have torn the double
aluminium skin and bent them outwards. That is to say, splinters from
inside the cockpit blew through the outside of the cabin. The open
rivets have also been bent outwards….There is only one conclusion one can make, and that is that this: the
aircraft was not hit by a missile. The damage to the aircraft is
exclusively in the cockpit area….
Armour-Piercing Ammunition. Russia has published radar data that a
Ukranian SU 25 was close to MH 017. this corresponds with Spanish air
traffic control that two Ukranian fighter aircraft were in direct
contact with MH 017. Examine the weaponry of the SU 25: it is fitted
out with a 30mm cannon Type GSch-302 /AO-17A, with 250 rounds of
splintering exploding bullets on a belt – shrapnel rounds. The cockpit
of MH 017 was hit from TWO sides, as there are entry and exit holes on
the same side….’
Very compelling stuff, is it not?
this (also German) article by defence expert Bernd Biederman, who offers equally sound reasons why the
shooting down could NOT have been from a surface to air missile:
‘ the shooting down of the Malaysian
Boeing on July 17 in the Eastern Ukraine “could not have been hit by a
surface to air defense missile” .
This is the assessment of retired Colonel Bernd Biedermann in an
article for the daily newspaper published in Berlin “new Germany”
(Thursday edition). Had splinters from a surface to air missile hit
the plane, it would have immediately caught fire, argues the NVA
anti-aircraft missile specialist. His reasoning is because of the
“enormous frictional heat that the splinters generate on penetrating
the fuselage. A single splinter contains the same kinetic energy as a
40-ton freight car hitting the buffers at 60 kilometers per hour.” In
the case of the Malaysian Boeing, scattered fires had broken out after
the impact with the ground, because hot debris from the aircraft had
come in contact with combustible materials.
Biedermann is familiar with Soviet and Russian air defense technology,
he led units in the duty officer system in East Germany and taught at
the Military Academy in the field of anti-aircraft missile troops.’
Articles are beginning to appear across the Web to the effect that Angela Merkel is disturbed by (and growing tired of) the incessant US propaganda being emitted in favour of its energy agenda….and so we must perhaps in turn view these articles in the light of her alleged new agenda concerning the creation of an alternative bloc to that of America. (More on this here in the near future).
But spin or not, these analyses make sense. The US State Dept has now shifted its position from ‘Russian atrocity’ to ‘tragic accident’. The above opinions suggest that neither are true: they suggest strongly that the Ukrainian air force took out MH17.

TIME TO CUT ISRAEL OFF
I know this is a sensitive subject for a lot of well meaning Americans. Believe me. I was one of those. Back in 1967, I cheered Golda Meir as she launched a “preemptive” attack on Egypt, Jordan and Syria. I, like so many, believed all Moslems and all the residents of the middle east were crazy. They all deserved to die. I no longer believe any of that.
The subject video covers Miko Peled. Miko Peled was born in Jersusalem into a famous and influential Israeli Zionist family. His father was a famous General in the Israeli Army, of which Miko also served his time. Slowly, but surely, more and more of us are shamed to admit, we have been had. Most of the enormous information coming out of our country and many others, is simply not true. The latest invasion of one of the poorest areas of the world by a modern, 21st century military, brings this home. No race, nationality or tribe deserves to be killed just because of their connection to that group.
Israel has made it their right to enforce their superiority to another nationality or tribe, through any means which they deem necessary. This is exactly the philosophy of Nazi Germany from which their parents and grandparents suffered persecution. This was the philosophy under which American Indians were killed and their land stolen. This was exactly the philosophy under which those who were of dark skin were killed or enslaved just because they were of the Negro race. This philosophy has no place in 2014 America and has never had any place among those who call themselves Christians.

IT'S BECAUSE THEY'RE LOSING THE WAR
It's been a week since the downing of the Malaysian Airliner. Before that incident, there had been several reversals on the ground for the armed forces of the Kiev junta, as well as losing a couple of aircraft. On Wednesday, it was reported 2 fighter jets belonging to the junta, were shot down. Also, this week, a brawl took place in the Ukraine Parliament and today, the entire government resigned.
All of these events are related and can be traced to the realization that this government in Kiev, is losing the civil war. When the current President was installed, he bragged that the resistance would be crushed within days. That didn't happen. Now, on top of all the military reversals, it has been rumored that the Kiev army has endured massive desertions. This can be born out by the fact that the government is resorting to dragging young men out of their homes to fight in that war.
Knowing all of this, it is reasonable to assume that the only way this government can survive in the long term is to drag NATO (the U.S.) into it. Then comes the shoot down of that civilian plane. This week, right on cue, Obama announced that the U.S. will send military advisers to the Ukraine. Vietnam anyone?

Rebels shoot down two Ukrainian fighter jets days after downing of MH17
Ukrainian military spokesman says planes were brought down about 16 miles from site of Malaysia Airlines crash

Pro-Russia rebels have shot down two Ukrainian fighter jets in eastern Ukraine just days after the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, a Ukrainian military spokesman has said.
"Two Sukhoi Ukrainian fighter jets have been shot down. The fate of the pilots is not known," a spokesman, Oleksiy Dmytrashkivsky, said, adding that the planes had been brought down about 16 miles (25km) from the MH17 crash site.
A second military spokesman, however, said insurgent rocket fire had brought the jets down at a different location. The two pilots managed to parachute out, he said, giving no further details about their condition.
"Today in the south of the Lugansk region close to the village of Dmytrivka, pro-Russia fighters shot two Su-25 jets from a missile system," the spokesman Vladislav Seleznev said.
"The pilots took evasive action … but the planes were hit," he said.
A spokesman for the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic said its fighters had shot down the two aircraft. An AFP crew trying to reach the scene was turned back by rebels, who fired shots near their car about six miles from Dmytrivka.
The downing of the fighter jets comes just six days after the insurgents were accused of shooting down the Malaysian passenger plane using a surface-to-air missile, killing all 298 people on board.
Pro-Russia rebels battling government troops in the east had previously taken out a string of Ukrainian military aircraft during the conflict. Rebels have denied that they downed flight MH17, accusing the Ukrainian military of being responsible.
The latest incident came after a ceasefire was declared by both sides in the immediate vicinity of the Boeing 777 crash site, where Malaysian experts and international monitors were examining the wreckage on Wednesday.
Earlier, the first 40 bodies recovered from MH17 were flown out of the government-held city of Kharkiv to Eindhoven in the Netherlands, where they were met by bereaved families and members of the Dutch royal family.
Obama administration sending military advisers to Ukraine within weeks
Published time: July 23, 2014 16:31

Military, USA, Ukraine
The United States is reportedly preparing to send a team of military advisers into Ukraine to assist with revamping forces there in the midst of the ongoing crisis between government-loyal troops and an anti-Kiev militia.
On Tuesday this week, the Washington Times reported that a spokesperson for the US Department of Defense confirmed plans to put Pentagon advisers in Ukraine.
“Within the next few weeks, a group of Defense Department representatives who specialize in strategy and policy will head to Kiev to evaluate specific programs that the United States may want to help bolster,” reporter Maggie Ybarra wrote for the Times.
The newspaper says that Army Col. Steve Warren, a spokesperson for the Pentagon, told the Times that the objective of sending DoD advisers overseas is to “shape and establish an enduring program for future US efforts to support the Ukrainian military through subject-matter expert teams and long-term advisers.”
RT reported previously back in early June that US military advisers were being offered to Kiev “to help Ukraine build highly effective armed forces and defense institutions” and to “shape and establish an enduring program for future US efforts to support the Ukrainian military through training, education and assistance.”
Last month’s announcement came after the White House approved more than $23 million security assistance to Ukraine in a matter of weeks. As the crisis in eastern Ukraine intensifies, however, particularly in the aftermath of last week’s tragic plane crash that cost the lives of nearly 300 civilians, the US is once again reportedly offering assistance, this time by way of providing Pentagon advisers.
“Clearly, we have an interest in what happens in Ukraine and it’s far better to have an idea of where we can maximize any support we are willing to provide,” Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-California) told the Times this week.
“It’s important to keep in mind that one of the reasons we’re sending people over there now to help them establish enduring programs is because they don’t have enduring programs,” one defense official told the paper on condition of anonymity. “So two months ago, when they generated their request list, that list wasn’t a result of a well-established defense strategy.”
On Wednesday this week, The Daily Beast went even further by alleging that those earlier requests made by Kiev to the Pentagon were for “sensitive equipment to jam the radars that Russian anti-aircraft systems use to lock their missiles on planes.”
According to Eli Lake at the Beast, a former senior US official said on condition of anonymity that Kiev officials last month specifically “requested the radar jamming and detection equipment necessary to evade and counter the anti-aircraft systems Moscow was providing the country’s separatists.”
Col. Warren, the Pentagon official who confirmed to the Times that DOD advisers were being sent abroad, told the Beast that “The Ukrainian government has requested support, but we’re not going to detail the types of support they have requested.”

RAND PAUL REVEALS HIS TRUE COLORS
Over the past few years many in the alternative media have pinned their hopes for a revival in America to Kentucky Senator, Rand Paul. The son of a great Libertarian, Ron Paul, Rand Paul isn't even close – just another phoney politician.
In the subject video, Paul places the blame for the shoot down of MH17 on Russia. He knows better, but hopes you don't. Let's do a quick review: There were no Russian forces in the area. There were no Russian missiles in the area, except those operated by the government of Ukraine. There were no fighter jets in the area except those operated by the government of Ukraine. Paul then goes on to lay the blame for the slaughter of innocent men, women and children, in Gaza at the feet of Hamas, leaving Israel totally blameless.
I have also included a video of Rand Paul avoiding questions on his support for his father's political opponent, Mitt Romney, from Luke Radowski, founder of We Are Change. Don't support him. Don't give him a nickel. If you really want to give him something, give him and all the other phoney politicians, the “heave ho” out of the Capitol and out of our lives.

The “it” to which I am referring is, the US government, my government, is comprised of pathological liars. As the verified history of just some of their false flags shows, they will do anything to get us into war. They then cash in while we spend our money and blood and the blood of our loved ones to fight wars that they start, but will not fight themselves.

AMERICA'S GODS. GAMES, SPORTS AND WAR
Christopher Hedges wrote an article that could have been pulled right out of my brain. In this article he pointed out that you cannot attend any sporting event in America without being subjected to a non stop barrage of glorification of our military state.
You will sing the National Anthem. Many will sing “God Bless America”. Sometimes you will recite the pledge of allegiance. We are subjected to military personnel in uniform and fly overs from fighter jets. And we cheer and sing and cry, because we all love war so much and everyone who wears a military uniform is a hero.
Really? Isn't a hero someone who performs a heroic act? Does every single soldier, sailor and airman, perform heroic acts? Are all of our wars good? After 12 years in Afghanistan and watching our soldiers guard poppy fields there, is that fighting for freedom? What about that war in Iraq? Remember the weapons of mass destruction and the non existent alliance between Saddam and Al-Qaeda? How about the phoney gas attack in Syria last year? Americans have been turned into non thinking sheep. So we sing and cheer and cry – over nothing. And those who control us ridicule our stupidity. It's been done before in other empires. They're gone. Soon we shall join them.

How America's Sporting Events Have Turned into Mass Religious Events to Bless Wars and Militarism
The religious reverie—repeated in sports arenas—is used to justify our bloated war budget and endless wars.
Boston - May 30: Memorial Day festivities before the Red Sox game against the Chicago White Sox at Fenway Park on May 30, 2011 in Boston, Massachusetts.

July 8, 2014 |
BOSTON—On Saturday I went to one of the massive temples across the country where we celebrate our state religion. The temple I visited was Boston’s Fenway Park. I was inspired to go by reading Andrew Bacevich’s thoughtful book “Breach of Trust: How Americans Failed Their Soldiers and Their Country,” which opens with a scene at Fenway from July 4, 2011. The Fourth of July worship service that I attended last week—a game between the Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles—was a day late because of a rescheduling caused by Tropical Storm Arthur. When the crowd sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” a gargantuan American flag descended to cover “the Green Monster,” the 37-foot, 2-inch-high wall in left field. Patriotic music blasted from loudspeakers. Col. Lester A. Weilacher, commander of the 66th Air Base Group at Massachusetts’ Hanscom Air Force Base, wearing a light blue short-sleeved Air Force shirt and dark blue pants, threw the ceremonial first pitch. A line of Air Force personnel stood along the left field wall. The fighter jets—our angels of death—that usually roar over the stadium on the Fourth were absent. But the face of Fernard Frechette, a 93-year-old World War II veteran who was attending, appeared on the 38-by-100-foot Jumbotron above the center-field seats as part of Fenway’s “Hats Off to Heroes” program, which honors military veterans or active-duty members at every game. The crowd stood and applauded. Army National Guard Sgt. Ben Arnold had been honored at the previous game, on Wednesday. Arnold said his favorite Red Sox player was Mike Napoli. Arnold, who fought in Afghanistan, makes about $27,000 a year. Napoli makes $16 million. The owners of the Red Sox clear about $60 million annually. God bless America.
The religious reverie—repeated in sports arenas throughout the United States—is used to justify our bloated war budget and endless wars. Schools and libraries are closing. Unemployment and underemployment are chronic. Our infrastructure is broken and decrepit. And we will have paid a crippling $4 trillion for the useless and futile wars we waged over the last 13 years in the Middle East. But the military remains as unassailable as Jesus, or, among those who have season tickets at Fenway Park, the Red Sox. The military is the repository of our honor and patriotism. No public official dares criticize the armed forces or challenge their divine right to more than half of all the nation’s discretionary spending. And although we may be distrustful of government, the military—in the twisted logic of the American mind—is somehow separate.
The heroes of war and the heroes of sport are indistinguishable in militarized societies. War is sold to a gullible public as a noble game. Few have the athletic prowess to play professional sports, but almost any young man or woman can go to a recruiter and sign up to be a military hero. The fusion of the military with baseball, along with the recruitment ads that appeared intermittently Saturday on the television screens mounted on green iron pillars throughout Fenway Park, caters to this illusion: Sign up. You will be part of a professional team. We will show you in your uniform on the Jumbotron in Fenway Park. You will be a hero like Mike Napoli.
Saturday’s crowd of some 37,000, which paid on average about $70 for a ticket, dutifully sang hosannas—including “God Bless America” in the seventh inning—to the flag and the instruments of death and war. It blessed and applauded a military machine that, ironically, oversees the wholesale surveillance of everyone in the ballpark and has the power under the National Defense Authorization Act to snatch anyone in the stands and hold him or her indefinitely in a military facility. There was no mention of targeted assassinations of U.S. citizens, kill lists or those lost or crippled in the wars. The crowd roared its approval every time the military was mentioned. It cheered its own enslavement.
War is not a sport. It is about killing. It is dirty, messy and deeply demoralizing. It brings with it trauma, lifelong wounds, loss and feelings of shame and guilt. It leaves bleeding or dead bodies on its fields. The pay is lousy. The working conditions are horrific. And those who come back from war are usually discarded. The veterans who died waiting for medical care from Veterans Affairs hospitals could, if they were alive, explain the difference between being a multimillion-dollar-a-year baseball star and a lance corporal home from Iraq or Afghanistan. At best, you are trotted out for a public event, as long as you read from the script they give you, the one designed to entice the naive into the military. Otherwise, you are forgotten.
All religions need relics. Old uniforms, bats, balls, gloves and caps are preserved in the Baseball Hall of Fame, like the bones of saints in churches. In that Cooperstown, N.Y., museum you walk by glass cases of baseball relics on your way to the third-floor display bearing the words “Sacred Ground: Examining ballparks of the past and present, this exhibit takes a look at America’s cathedrals of the game.” At ballparks the teams display statues of their titans—there is one of left fielder Ted Williams outside Fenway Park. And tens of thousands of dollars are paid for objects used by the immortals. A 1968 Mickey Mantle jersey was auctioned in May for $201,450. Team minutiae and statistics are preserved, much as monasteries preserve details of the lives and deaths of saints. Epic tales of glory and defeat are etched into the permanent record. The military has astutely deified itself through the fans’ deification of teams.
The collective euphoria experienced in stadiums, especially among those struggling to survive in the corporate state, gives to many anxious Americans what they crave. They flock to the temples of sport while most places of traditional religious worship in the United States are largely deserted on the Sabbath. Those packed into the stadiums feel as if they and everyone around them speak the same language. They believe those in the crowd are one entity. And they all hate the same enemy. To walk through Fenway Park in a New York Yankees shirt is to court verbal abuse. To be identified as a Yankees fan after a game in one of the bars outside the park is unwise. The longing to belong, especially in a society where many have lost their sense of place and identity, is skillfully catered to by both the professional sports machine and the military propaganda machine.
Many sports devotees return after the games to dead-end jobs, or no jobs, to massive personal debt, to the bleakness of the future. No wonder supplicants at Fenway Park part with such large sums of money to be entranced by fantasy for a few hours. And no wonder it is hard to distinguish the fantasy of a game from the fantasy of the military. Life in the Army or the Marines begins to look like spending a few years at Fenway. And that is why the military invests so much in sponsoring sporting events. Between innings Saturday, the screen above my head flashed segments called “U.S. Army Presents Top Prospects” that showcased promising ballplayers. Recruitment ads appeared at intervals. And the logo “Discover a Stronger Future. There’s Strong. There’s Army Strong” was ubiquitous. The Pentagon spends some $4.7 billion a year on recruiting, advertising, public affairs and psychological operations, according to a 2009 report published by The Associated Press. And much of that is targeted at the audiences of professional sports.
The owners of coal companies at the turn of the 20th century in southern West Virginia found that by funding local baseball teams they could blunt the solidarity of workers. Towns and coal camps rallied around their individual teams. Workers divided themselves according to team loyalty. Sport rivalries became personal. The owners, elated, used the teams to help fracture the labor movement. And the infernal logic is no different today. The players on a baseball team—who usually do not come from the city they represent—are used to promote a provincial chauvinism and a false sense of belonging and empowerment. And the financial, emotional and intellectual energy invested by fans in these well-choreographed spectacles keeps the onlookers docile and supine.
The Boston Globe and the Knight-Ridder media chain reported in 2005 that Phillip H. Morse, a minority partner of the Boston Red Sox, chartered his private jet to the Central Intelligence Agency, which used it to pick up terrorism suspects in the Middle East and Europe and fly them to Guantanamo Bay. The plane was spotted in Cairo on Feb. 18, 2003, according to Knight-Ridder. The imam of Milan, Hassan Mustafa Osama Nasr, also known as Abu Omar, had been kidnapped the day before on a Milan street by the CIA and the Italian Military Intelligence and Security Service. He was then flown clandestinely to Egypt. It is nearly certain that Morse’s plane was used for that flight. The imam was allegedly beaten and tortured in an Egyptian-run “black site.” The Gulfstream jet, the Globe reported, rented for $5,365 an hour, which, it calculated, worked out to $128,760 for a 24-hour day, or about $900,000 a week. Not even the highest-paid star on the Red Sox makes that much money.
The use of the Morse jet to carry out extraordinary rendition exposes the dark side of professional sports, how it is used by oligarchs and the military to manipulate and control us. The Red Sox logo that normally adorns the plane was missing. But the logo in any case would not have been visible to the imam, whose head would have been covered with a hood. The only difference between the imam and the rest of us is that we don’t require blindfolds.

UKRAINE PLANNED FALSE FLAG
The subject article covers a story from back in May where it was exposed that Ukrainian government authorities were planning a false flag against Russia. The prediction was for Ukraine soldiers dressing up as Russian soldiers and killing a bunch of innocent people. That didn't happen ---yet. Of course yesterday's tragic shooting down of a passenger airline appears to be a good substitute.
After the subject article I published an article about the Northwoods document. This was a plan put to the President written by the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff. In it they suggested killing John Glen, hi-jacking planes, shooting down civilian airlines and other such sadistic actions. They would then blame U.S. enemies for the terror.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Our government, and most governments, continually lie to their citizens. A good rule of thumb is to listen to what our government has to say on any subject and believe the opposite.

Kiev Plans False Flag Against Russia
by Stephen Lendman
Intense Russia bashing persists daily. It's official US policy. Resolving Ukraine's crisis diplomatically is systematically prevented.
Media scoundrels march in lockstep with what demands condemnation. Stoking conflict is prioritized. Russia is irresponsibly blamed for US-orchestrated Kiev crimes.
Orders come from straight from Washington. Coup-appointed putschists salute and obey.
On May 6, Voice of Russia (VOR) headlined "Ukrainian forces prepare provocation against Russia in Donetsk."
False flags are a longstanding US tradition. They go way back. They used often. Previous articles discussed them.
Wars followed. The 9/11 attack was the mother of all false flags. It's the biggest of Big Lies of our time. It launched over a decade of imperial wars.
They rage out-of-control. They continue after US forces withdraw. They persist at home. They target Muslims, Latino immigrants, whistleblowers, dissidents, activists of all stripes and other Americans.
They target independent nations lawlessly. They eliminate outlier foreign leaders. They aim to remove all challengers to US global dominance.
They prioritize conflict and instability. They create enemies where none exist. According to VOR, a false flag provocation against Russia is planned.
"Russian military uniforms and fake IDs of Russian officers have been taken to the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk," said VOR.
A staged attack on Ukrainian border guards is planned. It's reminiscent of how WW II began.
Nazis impersonated alleged Polish terrorists. They attacked the Gleiwitz radio station in Upper Silesia, Germany.
It bordered both countries. It was pretext to attack Poland. WW II followed.
Is Obama risking No. III? Is he mad enough to try? Is he beholden to crazies that extreme?
A Ukrainian official said on condition of anonymity: "The task is to stage an attack on Ukrainian border guards by people dressed in Russian military uniforms and make a video of it."
"The SBU (Ukraine Security Service) has transferred about 20 personal bodyguards of Dnepropetrovsk Region governor (Igor) Kolomoisky from Kiev to Donetsk."
"(T)he group" will team with (neo-Nazi) Right Sector" hoodlums. It'll "accompan(y) a cargo of about 200 sets of Russian military uniforms and about 70 (blank]) IDs of Russian military officers."
At issue is crushing Eastern Ukrainian resistance. It's eliminating freedom fighters for justice. It's smashing all opposition.
It's solidifying hardline rule. It's blaming its crimes on Russia. It risks igniting a major East/West confrontation.
It risks potential global war. It risks what no responsible leader would dare.
Sergei Lavrov is a world class diplomat. He's a bigger-than-life figure. He forthrightly stands tall.
He shames is Western counterparts. He makes John Kerry look illegitimate by comparison.
He's gone all-out to resolve Ukrainian crisis conditions diplomatically. He wants conflict contained. He wants it ended. He wants it kept from spinning out-of control.
He's deeply worried. He sees fascism reemergent in Ukraine. It took millions of Soviet Russian lives decades earlier.
"For many years, Europe has been turning a blind eye to the fact how this ideology is acquiring new supporters, how former Waffen SS legionaries found as war criminals at the Nuremberg Trials stage marches," he said.
In Ukraine, they're "already not just marches with slogans glorifying Nazi criminals, but a 'live' manifestation of fascism."
"What happened in the city of Odessa on May 2 is a sheer act of fascism, and we will not permit to sweep the facts under carpet as the ruling coalition tries to do so, concealing the investigation from the public."
"We will seek for the truth, will seek for all evidence which was produced by eyewitnesses and which show that current Kiev authorities are hushing up consciously the scale of tragedy and will seek for all the truth to be investigated and made public."
"We will not permit…fascism (again) in Europe (nor) in Russia," Lavrov added.
He accused Western countries of "turning a blind eye to the true causes of" Odessa's massacre. They suppressed neo-Nazi Right Sector crimes.
They irresponsibly accused Russia. They blamed victims for their own deaths. Extremists behind Friday's massacre "didn't hide that they were celebrating the victory of Russians," he said.
"We have witnessed a frank display of fascism. None of the radical nationalists who committed this terrible crime has been arrested."
"The Kiev authorities have vaguely expressed condolences, declared a mourning and opened (a less than serious) investigation."
"(N)ot many people will be surprised if" it's (whitewashed the same way as) fatal sniper shooting(s) in the Ukrainian capital in February."
"(S)uch a fate was prepared for Crimea, but its multinational people with Russia's support defended their future."
Last Friday, Odessa clashes erupted. Neo-Nazi Right Sector thugs provoked them. Slaughtering 46 activists followed. Scores of others were injured.
Dozens remain missing. They're unaccounted for. They're either dead or in ruthless Right Sector hands. They'll likely never be seen again alive. Fascists operate this way.
Right Sector hoodlums and likeminded extremists are some of the worst. Washington uses them advantageously. It does so to crush all opposition. It's to solidify unchallenged control.
Russia's Foreign Ministry was clear and unequivocal. It called what happened "criminal irresponsibility of the Kiev leadership indulging insolent nationalist radicals, including Right Sector, who are staging a campaign of physical terror against supporters of federalization and real constitutional changes in Ukrainian society."
Lavrov said America and rogue EU partners ducked commenting on diktats straight from Washington and Brussels.
They ordered harsh crackdowns against Ukrainians wanting to live free.
"In the midst of February Maidan confrontations in Kiev, Nato Defense Ministers and Secretary General stated the inadmissibility of intervention of the armed forces of Ukraine in the political process, and insisted on the neutrality of the army," said Lavrov.
"Today Washington and Brussels affirm the bogus legitimacy of so-called "anti-terrorist operation(s)."
Neo-Nazis thugs terrorize their own people. They're praised for committing mass murder. Washington wholeheartedly endorses their ruthlessness.
"In the midst of February Maidan confrontations in Kiev, Nato Defense Ministers and Secretary General stated the inadmissibility of intervention of the armed forces of Ukraine in the political process, and insisted on the neutrality of the army," said Lavrov.
"We don't do regime change. We don't do color revolutions, let alone brown-hued ones like those in Ukraine," he added.
At the same time, Russia is "not walking away from contacts with our Ukrainian counterparts, and one result of such contacts was the Geneva Statement of April 17."
"Practical steps can be taken only by the Ukrainians themselves if they are not restrained from cooperating with each other. Alas, our Western partners are not ready to agree to the equitable participation of southeastern Ukraine in the national dialogue."
"We honestly speak about that, in particular, with our American and European colleagues. They claim this is not so."
If not, "then anything is possible and let us not tear Ukraine apart between the East and the West but pool efforts and help start the dialogue, which can coordinate practical steps towards the fulfillment of all agreements and statements."
Lavrov is resilient. He's extraordinarily patient. He matches the best of Job.
Despite daily irresponsible Russia bashing, he persists seeking responsible conflict resolution.
He want all sides represented in forthright dialogue. He urges compromise to settle things.
He wants four-party Geneva agreement terms observed. He urges more diplomatic discussions.
He wants all Ukrainians treated fairly and equitably. He wants each showing respect for others
He wants Kiev to stop using its military, National Guard and Right Sector thugs against its own people.
"(T)he first and obvious step is to cancel the order to use the army and the National Guard for suppressing (legitimate) protests," he said.
He calls presidential elections held under conflict conditions unrealistic. Resolving conflict conditions equitably come first.
Prioritizing geopolitical ambitions above responsible governance assures continued conflict. It means no end of fighting.
It keeps Ukraine on the boil. Perhaps doing so longterm. Maybe escalating things out-of-control.
A previous article profiled Lavrov. It called him a true peace champion. His efforts represent the best of responsible conflict resolution.
He persists tirelessly for peace. He deserves Nobel award recognition. He's polar opposite Kerry. Previous articles compared them.
Kerry represents the worst of America's dark side. He mocks legitimacy. He's an unindicted war criminal. He shames the office he holds.
Demagoguery punctuates his comments. It exceeds the worst of Cold War rhetoric. He's been caught red-handed lying numerous times.
He disdains rule of law principles. He supports war. He deplores peace. He's indifferent to human suffering. He's a monument to wrong over right.
He disgraces his country, position and humanity. He belongs in prison, not high office. On May 6, he met with EU foreign policy chief Katherine Ashton.
They're partners in crime. We "covered a lot of ground," he said. We "shared strategy." They discussed Ukraine.
He lied saying Russia "fail(ed) to live up to the very plain and simple, easy-to-interpret commitments that were made in Geneva."
"Ukraine's government, literally before the ink was dry, started to implement on that agreement. And they have held up their end of the bargain."
"Ukraine has shown remarkable restraint. Almost immediately coming out of that meeting in Geneva, they ordered a cessation of any kind of counterterrorism activity, any effort to remove people from buildings based on the notion that both sides were going to work to bring people out of those buildings."
"And the fact is that they have been committed in Kyiv to trying to move their country forward through nonviolence, through constitutional reform, through dialogue, and by reaching out to the disaffected parts of Ukraine."
Fact: Russia fully complies with agreed on Geneva terms.
Fact: Washington systematically violated them straightaway.
Fact: So did coup-appointed Kiev fascists.
Fact: They launched aggression against their own people the next day.
Fact: They're murdering them in cold blood.
Fact: They deployed neo-Nazi Right Sector thugs.
Fact: They ordered them to kill, torture and otherwise abuse Eastern Ukrainian freedom fighters.
Fact: The Odessa massacre followed.
Fact: Expect much worse ahead.
Fact: Orders to commit mass murder come straight from Washington.
Fact: Kerry fools no one paying attention.
Fact: His game is coverup and denial.
Fact: It's pointing fingers the wrong way.
Fact: It's blaming Russia for US-ordered Kiev crimes.
We're "very concerned about efforts of pro-Russian separatists in Donetsk, in Luhansk to organize, frankly, a contrived, bogus independence referendum on May 11th," said Kerry.
It's "the Crimea playbook all over again and no civilized nation is going to recognize the results of such a bogus effort."
Fact: Eastern Ukrainian activists aren't separatists.
Fact: They're not militants.
Fact: They're freedom fighters.
Fact: They're ordinary people.
Fact: They're factory workers, miners, farmers, store clerks, and defenders of right over wrong.
Fact: They're acting entirely on their own volition.
Fact: They want their fundamental rights respected.
Fact: They want local autonomy.
Fact: They don't seek separation from Ukraine.
Fact: Their planned referendums are entirely legitimate.
Fact: They deserve worldwide support.
Fact: Expect all "civilized nation(s)" to recognize their results.
"(I)f Russian elements continue to sabotage the democratic process and prevent Ukraine from holding a free and fair election 19 days from now on the 25th, then we stand ready to implement additional sanctions," said Kerry.
"And the 'we' is Europe and the United States together."
Fact: So-called upcoming elections have no legitimacy whatever.
Fact: So-called "Russian elements" don't exist.
Fact: Washington and rogue EU partners disagree sharply on sanctions.
Fact: European nations have valued political and economic ties to Russia.
Fact: They won't let Washington jeopardize them.
Fact: They won't impose sanctions harming their own self-interest.
Fact: Washington is largely isolated on its own imposing harsh ones if planned.
"We are not going to sit idly by while Russian elements fan the flames of instability, instead of fulfilling the commitments that we made," said Kerry.
"(W)e came together in a real spirit of trying to de-escalate. And we weren't playing a game."
"Regrettably, (it) was not met with reciprocity."
"So the choice is really Russia's. The United States, the EU, and our allies have made our choice very, very clear:"
"We are going to stand together united not just in support of Ukraine, but united in support of de-escalating; united in support of a peaceful, diplomatic solution…"
Facts on the ground are polar opposite Kerry's scenario. Big Lies infested his comments.
He twisted truth to fit US policy. At issue is advancing America's imperium. It's controlling Ukraine.
It's incorporating it into NATO. It's targeting Russia. It's eliminating a major rival.
It's transforming it into a subservient vassal state. It's plundering its resources. It's exploiting its people.
It's violating fundamental international, constitutional and US statute laws doing so.
It's waging war on humanity for unchallenged global dominance. It's recklessly risking WW III.
Kerry is Obama's geopolitical front man. It bears repeating. He represents the worst of America's dark side.
He supports war. He deplores peace. He risks possible WW III. At stake is humanity's survival.
Policies he furthers risk what no responsible official would endorse. The worst of all possible outcomes may follow.

US PLANNED FAKE TERROR ATTACKS ON CITIZENS
TO CREATE SUPPORT FOR CUBAN WAR
From BODY OF SECRETS, James Bamford, Doubleday, 2001, p.82 and following.
Scanned and edited by NY Transfer News
...In [Joint Chief's chair] Lemnitzer's view, the country would be far better off if the generals could take over. [JFK assassination legend has it some general presided over the fudgy JFK autopsy. --Mk]
For those military officers who were sitting on the fence, the Kennedy administration's botched Bay of Pigs invasion was the last straw. "The Bay of Pigs fiasco broke the dike," said one report at the time. "President Kennedy was pilloried by the super patriots as a 'no-win' chief . . . The Far Right became a fount of proposals born of frustration and put forward in the name of anti-Communism. . . Active-duty commanders played host to anti-Communist seminars on their bases and attended or addressed Right-wing meetings elsewhere."
Although no one in Congress could have known it at the time, Lemnitzer and the Joint Chiefs had quietly slipped over the edge.
According to secret and long-hidden documents obtained for Body of Secrets, the Joint Chiefs of Staff drew up and approved plans for what may be the most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S. government. In the name of antiCommunism, they proposed launching a secret and bloody war of terrorism against their own country in order to trick the American public into supporting an ill-conceived war they intended to launch against Cuba.

Code named Operation Northwoods, the plan, which had the written approval of the Chairman and every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called for innocent people to be shot on American streets; for boats carrying refugees fleeing Cuba to be sunk on the high seas; for a wave of violent terrorism to be launched in Washington, D.C., Miami, and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did not commit; planes would be hijacked. Using phony evidence, all of it would be blamed on Castro, thus giving Lemnitzer and his cabal the excuse, as well as the public and international backing, they needed to launch their war.
The idea may actually have originated with President Eisenhower in the last days of his administration. With the Cold War hotter than ever and the recent U-2 scandal fresh in the public's memory, the old general wanted to go out with a win. He wanted desperately to invade Cuba in the weeks leading up to Kennedy's inauguration; indeed, on January 3 he told Lemnitzer and other aides in his Cabinet Room that he would move against Castro before the inauguration if only the Cubans gave him a really good excuse. Then, with time growing short, Eisenhower floated an idea. If Castro failed to provide that excuse, perhaps, he said, the United States "could think of manufacturing something that would be generally acceptable." What he was suggesting was a pretext a bombing, an attack, an act of sabotage carried out secretly against the United States by the United States. Its purpose would be to justify the launching of a war. It was a dangerous suggestion by a desperate president.
Although no such war took place, the idea was not lost on General Lemnitzer But he and his colleagues were frustrated by Kennedy's failure to authorize their plan, and angry that Castro had not provided an excuse to invade.
The final straw may have come during a White House meeting on February 26, 1962. Concerned that General Lansdale's various covert action plans under Operation Mongoose were simply becoming more outrageous and going nowhere, Robert Kennedy told him to drop all anti-Castro efforts. Instead, Lansdale was ordered to concentrate for the next three months strictly on gathering intelligence about Cuba. It was a humiliating defeat for Lansdale, a man more accustomed to praise than to scorn.
As the Kennedy brothers appeared to suddenly "go soft" on Castro, Lemnitzer could see his opportunity to invade Cuba quickly slipping away. The attempts to provoke the Cuban public to revolt seemed dead and Castro, unfortunately, appeared to have no inclination to launch any attacks against Americans or their property Lemnitzer and the other Chiefs knew there was only one option left that would ensure their war. They would have to trick the American public and world opinion into hating Cuba so much that they would not only go along, but would insist that he and his generals launch their war against Castro. "World opinion, and the United Nations forum," said a secret JCS document, "should be favorably affected by developing the international image of the Cuban government as rash and irresponsible, and as an alarming and unpredictable threat to the peace of the Western Hemisphere."
Operation Northwoods called for a war in which many patriotic Americans and innocent Cubans would die senseless deaths, all to satisfy the egos of twisted generals back in Washington, safe in their taxpayer financed homes and limousines.
One idea seriously considered involved the launch of John Glenn, the first American to orbit the earth. On February 20,1962, Glenn was to lift off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on his historic journey. The flight was to carry the banner of America's virtues of truth, freedom, and democracy into orbit high over the planet. But Lemnitzer and his Chiefs had a different idea. They proposed to Lansdale that, should the rocket explode and kill Glenn, "the objective is to provide irrevocable proof that . . . the fault lies with the Communists et al Cuba [sic.]"
This would be accomplished, Lemnitzer continued, "by manufacturing various pieces of evidence which would prove electronic interference on the part of the Cubans." Thus, as NASA prepared to send the first American into space, the Joint Chiefs of Staff were preparing to use John Glenn's possible death as a pretext to launch a war.
Glenn lifted into history without mishap, leaving Lemnitzer and the Chiefs to begin devising new plots which they suggested be carried out "within the time frame of the next few months."
Among the actions recommended was "a series of well coordinated incidents to take place in and around" the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. This included dressing "friendly" Cubans in Cuban military uniforms and then have them "start riots near the main gate of the base. Others would pretend to be saboteurs inside the base. Ammunition would be blown up, fires started, aircraft sabotaged, mortars fired at the base with damage to installations."
The suggested operations grew progressively more outrageous. Another called for an action similar to the infamous incident in February 1898 when an explosion aboard the battleship Maine in Havana harbor killed 266 U.S. sailors. Although the exact cause of the explosion remained undetermined, it sparked the Spanish-American War with Cuba. Incited by the deadly blast, more than one million men volunteered for duty. Lemnitzer and his generals came up with a similar plan. "We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba," they proposed; "casualty lists in U.S. newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation."
There seemed no limit to their fanaticism: "We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington," they wrote. "The terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States.
We could sink a boatload of Cubans en route to Florida (real or simulated). . . . We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized."
Bombings were proposed, false arrests, hijackings:
*"Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of Cuban agents and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government."
*"Advantage can be taken of the sensitivity of the Dominican [Republic] Air Force to intrusions within their national air space. 'Cuban' B-26 or C-46 type aircraft could make cane burning raids at night. Soviet Bloc incendiaries could be found. This could be coupled with 'Cuban' messages to the Communist underground in the Dominican Republic and 'Cuban' shipments of arms which would be found, or intercepted, on the beach. Use of MiG type aircraft by U.S. pilots could provide additional provocation."
*"Hijacking attempts against civil air and surface craft could appear to continue as harassing measures condoned by the Government of Cuba."
Among the most elaborate schemes was to "create an incident which will demonstrate convincingly that a Cuban aircraft has attacked and shot down a chartered civil airliner en route from the United States to Jamaica, Guatemala, Panama or Venezuela. The destination would be chosen only to cause the flight plan route to cross Cuba. The passengers could be a group of college students off on a holiday or any grouping of persons with a common interest to support chartering a non-scheduled flight."
Lemnitzer and the Joint Chiefs worked out a complex deception:
An aircraft at Elgin AFB would be painted and numbered as an exact duplicate for a civil registered aircraft belonging to a CJA proprietary organization in the Miami area. At a designated time the duplicate would be substituted for the actual civil aircraft and would be loaded with the selected passengers, all boarded under carefully prepared aliases. The actual registered aircraft would be converted to a drone [a remotely controlled unmanned aircraft]. Take off times of the drone aircraft and the actual aircraft will be scheduled to allow a rendezvous south of Florida.
From the rendezvous point the passenger-carrying aircraft will descend to minimum altitude and go directly into an auxiliary field at Elgin AFB where arrangements will have been made to evacuate the passengers and return the aircraft to its original status. The drone aircraft meanwhile will continue to fly the filed flight plan. When over Cuba the drone will be transmitting on the international distress frequency a "May Day" message stating he is under attack by Cuban MiG aircraft. The transmission will be interrupted by destruction of the aircraft, which will be triggered by radio signal. This will allow ICAO [International Civil Aviation Organization radio stations in the Western Hemisphere to tell the U.S. what has happened to the aircraft instead of the U.S. trying to "sell" the incident.
Finally, there was a plan to "make it appear that Communist Cuban MiGs have destroyed a USAF aircraft over international waters in an unprovoked attack." It was a particularly believable operation given the decade of shoot downs that had just taken place.
In the final sentence of his letter to Secretary McNamara recommending the operations, Lemnitzer made a grab for even more power asking that the Joint Chiefs be placed in charge of carrying out Operation Northwoods and the invasion. "It is recommended," he wrote, "that this responsibility for both oven and covert military operations be assigned to the Joint Chiefs of Staff."
At 2:30 on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 13, 1962, Lemnitzer went over last-minute details of Operation Northwoods with his covert action chief, Brigadier General William H. Craig, and signed the document. He then went to a "special meeting" in McNamara's office. An hour later he met with Kennedy's military representative, General Maxwell Taylor. What happened during those meetings is unknown. But three days later, President Kennedy told Lemnitzer that there was virtually no possibility that the U.S. would ever use overt military force in Cuba.
Undeterred, Lemnitzer and the Chiefs persisted, virtually to the point of demanding that they be given authority to invade and take over Cuba. About a month after submitting Operation Northwoods, they met the "tank," as the JCS conference room was called, and agreed on the wording of a tough memorandum to McNamara. "The Joint Chiefs of Staff believe that the Cuban problem must be solved in the near future," they wrote. "Further, they see no prospect of early success in overthrowing the present communist regime either as a result of internal uprising or external political, economic or psychological pressures. Accordingly they believe that military intervention by the United States will be required to overthrow the present communist regime."
Lemnitzer was virtually rabid in his hatred of Communism in general and Castro in particular "The Joint Chiefs of Staff believe that the United States can undertake military intervention in Cuba without risk of general war" he continued. "They also believe that the intervention can be accomplished rapidly enough to minimize communist opportunities for solicitation of UN action." However; what Lemnitzer was suggesting was not freeing the Cuban people, who were largely in support of Castro, but imprisoning them in a U.S. military-controlled police state. "Forces would assure rapid essential military control of Cuba," he wrote. "Continued police action would be required."
Concluding, Lemnitzer did not mince words: "[T]he Joint Chiefs of Staff recommend that a national policy of early military intervention in Cuba be adopted by the United States. They also recommend that such intervention be undertaken as soon as possible and preferably before the release of National Guard and Reserve forces presently on active duty."
By then McNamara had virtually no confidence in his military chief and was rejecting nearly every proposal the general sent to him. The rejections became so routine, said one of Lemnitzer's former staff officers, that the staffer told the general that the situation was putting the military in an "embarrassing rut." But Lemnitzer replied, "I am the senior military office--it's my job to state what I believe and it's his [McNamara's] job to approve or disapprove." "McNamara's arrogance was astonishing," said Lemnitzer's aide, who knew nothing of Operation Northwoods. "He gave General Lemnitzer very short shrift and treated him like a schoolboy. The general almost stood at attention when he came into the room. Everything was 'Yes, sir' and 'No, sir.'
Within months, Lemnitzer was denied a second term as JCS chairman and transferred to Europe as chief of NATO. Years later President Gerald Ford appointed Lemnitzer, a darling of the Republican right, to the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. Lemnitzer's Cuba chief, Brigadier General Craig, was also transferred. Promoted to major general, he spent three years as chief of the Army Security Agency, NSA's military arm.
Because of the secrecy and illegality of Operation Northwoods, all details remained hidden for forty years. Lemnitzer may have thought that all copies of the relevant documents had been destroyed; he was not one to leave compromising material lying around. Following the Bay of Pigs debacle, for example, he ordered Brigadier General David W Gray, Craig's predecessor as chief of the Cuba project within the JCS, to destroy all his notes concerning Joint Chiefs actions and discussions during that period. Gray's meticulous notes were the only detailed official records of what happened within the JCS during that time. According to Gray, Lemnitzer feared a congressional investigation and therefore wanted any incriminating evidence destroyed.
With the evidence destroyed, Lemnitzer felt free to lie to Congress. When asked, during secret hearings before a Senate committee, if he knew of any Pentagon plans for a direct invasion of Cuba he said he did not. Yet detailed JCS invasion plans had been drawn up even before Kennedy was inaugurated. And additional plans had been developed since. The consummate planner and man of details also became evasive, suddenly encountering great difficulty in recalling key aspects of the operation, as if he had been out of the country during the period. It was a sorry spectacle. Senator Gore called for Lemnitzer to be fired. "We need a shake up of the Joint Chiefs of Staff" he said. "We direly need a new chairman, as well as new members." No one had any idea of Operation Northwoods.
Because so many documents were destroyed, it is difficult to determine how many senior officials were aware of Operation Northwoods. As has been described, the document was signed and fully approved by Lemnitzer and the rest of the Joint Chiefs and addressed to the Secretary of Defense for his signature. Whether it went beyond McNamara to the president and the attorney general is not known.
Even after Lemnitzer lost his job, the Joint Chiefs kept planning "pretext" operations at least into 1963. Among their proposals was a deliberately create a war between Cuba and any of a number of .n American neighbors. This would give the United States military an excuse to come in on the side of Cuba's adversary and get rid of "A contrived 'Cuban' attack on an OAS [Organization of Americas] member could be set up," said one proposal, "and the attacked state could be urged to 'take measures of self-defense and request ice from the U.S. and OAS; the U.S. could almost certainly obtain necessary two-thirds support among OAS members for collective action against Cuba."
Among the nations they suggested that the United States secretly were Jamaica and Trinidad-Tobago. Both were members of the Commonwealth; thus, by secretly attacking them and then blaming Cuba, the United States could lure England into the war Castro. The report noted, "Any of the contrived situations de above are inherently, extremely risky in our democratic system in which security can be maintained, after the fact, with very great difficulty. If the decision should be made to set up a contrived situation it be one in which participation by U.S. personnel is limited only to the most highly trusted covert personnel. This suggests the infeasibility of the use of military units for any aspect of the contrived situation."
The report even suggested secretly paying someone in the Castro government to attack the United States: "The only area remaining for ration then would be to bribe one of Castro's subordinate commanders to initiate an attack on [the U.S. naval base at] Guantanamo." The act suggested--bribing a foreign nation to launch a violent attack American military installation--was treason.
In May 1963, Assistant Secretary of Defense Paul H. Nitze sent a the White House proposing "a possible scenario whereby an attack on a United States reconnaissance aircraft could be exploited toward the end of effecting the removal of the Castro regime." In the event Cuba attacked a U-2, the plan proposed sending in additional American pilots, this time on dangerous, unnecessary low-level reconnaissance missions with the expectation that they would also be shot down, thus provoking a war "[T]he U.S. could undertake various measures designed to stimulate the Cubans to provoke a new incident," said the plan. Nitze, however, did not volunteer to be one of the pilots.
One idea involved sending fighters across the island on "harassing reconnaissance" and "show-off" missions "flaunting our freedom of action, hoping to stir the Cuban military to action." "Thus," said the plan, "depending above all on whether the Cubans were or could be made to be trigger-happy, the development of the initial downing of a reconnaissance plane could lead at best to the elimination of Castro, perhaps to the removal of Soviet troops and the installation of ground inspection in Cuba, or at the least to our demonstration of firmness on reconnaissance." About a month later, a low-level flight was made across Cuba, but unfortunately for the Pentagon, instead of bullets it produced only a protest.
Lemnitzer was a dangerous-perhaps even unbalanced-right-wing extremist in an extraordinarily sensitive position during a critical period. But Operation Northwoods also had the support of every single member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and even senior Pentagon official Paul Nitze argued in favor of provoking a phony war with Cuba. The fact that the most senior members of all the services and the Pentagon could be so out of touch with reality and the meaning of democracy would be hidden for four decades.
In retrospect, the documents offer new insight into the thinking of the military's star-studded leadership. Although they never succeeded in launching America into a phony war with Cuba, they may have done so with Vietnam. More than 50,000 Americans and more than 2 million Vietnamese were eventually killed in that war.
It has long been suspected that the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident-the spark that led to America's long war in Vietnam-was largely staged or provoked by U.S. officials in order to build up congressional and public support for American involvement. Over the years, serious questions have been raised about the alleged attack by North Vietnamese patrol boats on two American destroyers in the Gulf But defenders of the Pentagon have always denied such charges, arguing that senior officials would never engage in such deceit.
Now, however, in light of the Operation Northwoods documents, it at deceiving the public and trumping up wars for Americans to fight and die in was standard, approved policy at the highest levels of the Pentagon. In fact, the Gulf of Tonkin seems right out of the Operation Northwoods playbook: "We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba . . . casualty lists in U.S. newspapers cause a helpful wave of indignation." One need only replace "Guantanamo Bay" with "Tonkin Gulf," and "Cuba" with "North Vietnam" and the Gulf of Tonkin incident may or may not have been stage-managed, but the senior Pentagon leadership at the time was clearly capable of such deceit.

WHO SHOT DOWN MALAYSIAN AIRLINER?
I would suggest that one should read about the sinking of the Maine, which led to the Spanish American war and the sinking of the Lusitania, which led to America's involvement into World War One. The best way to get a reluctant citizenry into supporting an unpopular and unnecessary war is to blame your opponent for the slaughter of innocent civilians.
Now on to this tragedy. It has been determined this civilian aircraft was shot down by a surface to air missile. There is only one nation in the area of the shoot down that has missiles capable of shooting a plane at 30,000 feet. That nation is Ukraine. There may be some among the separatists who would like to have these weapons, but there is no evidence whatsoever that they have them. Furthermore, ALL of the nations that have received these weapon systems from Russia have also had Russian experts sent with them to teach the technicians on how to operate them. In the case of Syria, for instance, making these missiles operational takes several months.
So, if the separatists wanted to shoot down a plane, it sure wouldn't be a civilian plane flying at 30,000 feet. All of the hostile actions against the rebels have been low altitude-- no where close to 30,000 feet. No, it's Ukraine. Maybe not on orders from anyone up high, but it's them. They are the only ones with anything to gain. Certainly, Russia would be insane to kill innocent civilians. If they wanted to start a war, they would just attack the Ukraine military.

In what is now the second curious incident involving a Malaysian airlines flight, a Malaysian airlines Boeing 777 has crashed over Ukraine. The flight was traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur with 295 people on board. The flight crashed in East Ukraine close to the Russian border.
The flight was allegedly downed by a missile.
According to USA Today “Anton Gerashenko, the adviser, says on his Facebook page the plane was flying at an altitude of 33,000 feet when it was hit Thursday by a missile fired from a BUK launcher, the Associated Press reports.”
AP Journalists are claiming to have seen a similar style missile in the eastern Ukrainian town of Snizhne on Thursday.
USA TODAY describes the BUK missile system, also known as the SA-17 GRIZZLY as “a mobile anti-aircraft system mounted usually on a tracked vehicle or truck that can simultaneously track and strike six targets flying from different directions and at different altitudes.”
Yet while the Western press is wasting no time to suggest that the plane was shot down either by Ukrainian separatists backed by Russia or even Russia itself, both the separatist leaders and the Russian government have denied any involvement in the downing of the plane.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has also denied shooting down the plane.
It is not yet decidedly clear which forces would have actually had control over such types of missile launchers as the BUK system since the territory from where the missiles were allegedly launched is an active battlefield between Kiev fascists supported by NATO and Ukrainian separatists who are receiving support from Russia.
The Donetsk regional separatist government stated that the plane crashed near the village of Grabovo, a separatist-controlled area. However, the fact that the plane crashed near Grabovo does not indicate blame as to who fired missiles or if any missiles were indeed fired.
Separatists deny that their forces even have the capability to shoot down the Malaysian flight at the altitudes specified. Separatists are labeling the incident a “provocation by the Ukrainian military,” according to USA Today and the Russian Interfax news agency.
Alexander Boroday, Chairman of the Council of Ministers in the Republic of Donetsk stated that “Self-defense forces have no air-defense which could target transport aircraft at that height."
Russia’s military also claims that none of its military planes have flown close to the Russian-Ukrainian border on Thursday according to a report citing an unidentified military official by RIA Novosti.
Indeed, there is little evidence to suggest that the Ukrainian separatists have such missile launching capabilities. There has been no indication that separatists have seized this type of sophisticated military weaponry or that Russian has provided it to them.
However, there is evidence pointing toward the location of such missile launching systems in Ukraine.
According to ITAR-TASS, a Russian news agency, Ukraine’s armed forces actually moved the BUK anti-aircraft missile delivery system battalion to the area around the city of Donetsk on Wednesday. The source quoted by ITAR-TASS suggests that another battalion of the BUK missile launching system is being moved to the area of Kharkov, a city in East Ukraine but northwest of Donetsk.
The source also stated that a plane could only be shot down at 10,000 meters by a system that is at least as sophisticated as the BUK or S-300 missile systems.
The report states,
Ukraine’s armed forces dispatched the Buk anti-aircraft missile system battalion to the area of the city of Donetsk on Wednesday, a well-informed source said referring to the data recording system.
Another battalion of the same weapons is said to be in the process of embarkation in the city of Kharkiv, northwest of Donetsk, the source said adding that the aircraft at an altitude of over 10,000 meters could be shot down only with the weapons of the S-300 or Buk (Beech) missile systems.
Indeed, the BUK system, which requires transportation and mounting on a tracked vehicle or large truck, is not likely to be in the hands of rebels surviving on Russian small arms and other basic forms of military and tactical aid. BUK is much more the type of system that would be property of a national government.
This incident comes only a day after claims by the Ukrainian military that Russia shot down a Ukrainian jet fighter over Ukrainian territory.
It also comes only days after the Western media seized on reports suggesting that the Russian government was considering targeted strikes inside Ukraine in order to protect the Ukrainian people, ethnic Russians, and Russian interests.

Malaysia Airlines plane crashes in Ukraine 60 km from Russian border
MOSCOW, July 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s armed forces dispatched the Buk anti-aircraft missile system battalion to the area of the city of Donetsk on Wednesday, a well-informed source said referring to the data recording system.
Another battalion of the same weapons is said to be in the process of embarkation in the city of Kharkiv, northwest of Donetsk, the source said adding that the aircraft at an altitude of over 10,000 meters could be shot down only with the weapons of the S-300 or Buk (Beech) missile systems.
In the meantime, militias of the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk have said they do not possess armament systems of this class.
Militias of the self-proclaimed republics in Ukraine's east are not armed with the Buk anti-aircraft missile systems, the press service of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic said in comments on the Ukrainian authorities' statements about a possible involvement of the Donetsk and Luhansk militias to the downing of the Malaysian plane.

WHO ARE THE JEWS OF ISRAEL?
The subject article goes into great detail as to whom those in Israel claiming ancestry back to Abraham, actually are. I have spoken often of American apathy. This apathy plays right into the hands of the imposters who have settled in Palestine as the “chosen people”. In order to sort through this, one must be able to define “chosen people” and “Israel”. It's not what most think.

Are Jews the Israelites of the Bible?
July 14, 2014 by biblicisminstitute 3 Comments
A Special Report by Biblicism Institute
The number one biblical verse used by Zionist Jews and Zionist Christians alike to justify dispossessing the Palestinians of their land is this one, Genesis 15:18:
‘On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates….”
By descendants God definitely meant the same biological bloodline, the same DNA, actual grandchildren of Abraham. Not spiritual progeny. Unfortunately, as even a cursory study would show, the great majority of today’s Jews are not bloodline descendants of Abraham.
They are in fact the non-Semitic, non-Israelite Ashkenazim and Sephardim who in later times joined small numbers of different races that converted to Judaism: Polish, Russians, Ukrainians, Germans, etc. These latter ones form a minority known as European Jews who when coupled with the Ashkenazim constitute a majority against the darker-skinned Sephardic and African Jews. These European and African Jews are not of Abraham’s bloodline either.
However, it is very important to understand what the bible and history have to say about the majority of today’s Jews, the people known as Ashkenazim and Sephardim while bearing in mind that Abraham was a descendant of Shem – hence the term Semite or Shemite – and that his scion Jacob and his twelve sons were the true biblical Hebraic Israelite nation which no longer exists.
This is what the Bible has to say about the Ashkenazim:
“Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
3 And the sons of Gomer: ASHKENAZ, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
4 And the sons of Javan: Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.” (Genesis 10: 1-5) (Emphasis Added)
Today’s Ashkenazi Jews, or descendants of Ashkenaz, are some of the GENTILES the bible speaks of. Why then do Ashkenazim call Christians and other non-Jews Gentiles while pinning on themselves the term Chosen People? Ignorance? Deception? Who knows? But, in their mind it’s pure re-branding. The ultimate Chutzpah!
Consider the terrible irony! A majority of Jews are themselves the Gentiles that many rabbis warn their congregation not to marry. To further the re-branding, they also call themselves Semites or Shemites when they’re JAPHETHITES which means they’re not Hebrews either. This re-branding is much like the way most of them – if not the majority of them – keep changing their last names every time they settle in a new country. The reason is simple and quite pragmatic. It’s a survival mechanism. The Ashkenazim are a resilient roaming Turkic people that keep reinventing themselves throughout history.
They first surfaced as the notoriously barbaric Scythians or Sakadeans depending on regional phonetic. The word Scythian or Sakadean comes from the word Saka – with its verbal root Sak meaning to roam. The Scythians settled Central Eurasia which they conquered with their Gentile brother Togarmath and various other cousins expanding across a vast track of land that encompassed but was not limited to parts of present day Turkey and Iran. Their Gentile brother Riphath along with their uncle Javan’s descendants settled in Greece.
Later on, the Ashkenazim went on to settle a land they would call Khazaria – from the word Qaz meaning to roam – following the break-up of the western Turkish Steppe Empire and where the country converted en masse to Judaism sometime between 740 and 920 AD just so they could remain independent of the two competing empires of that time: Christianity and Islam. Then the Russian Sviatoslav of Kiev destroyed Khazaria around 1048 and absorbed it into what would become the Russian Empire where they were kept under tight control and even oppressed. Something the Ashkenazim never forgave Russia.
Just think of the heinous Bolsheviks during the Soviet era who killed 66 million Russian Christians and destroyed thousands of churches according to famed Christian Russian writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Many of the Bolsheviks were Russian Jews such as Vladimir Lenin, Leon Trosky, Lev Kamenev, Gregory Zinoviev, Yakov Sverdlov and Grigory Sokolnikov and were financed by Ashkenazi bankers from New York and London such as Rothschild Bank, Jacob Schiff of Kuhn and Loeb & Co. who themselves championed the destructive ideology of the Ashkenazi Karl Marx and found it profitable to invest in Communism’s disastrous conquest of Russia while making a few bucks in the process by plundering the country via well placed agents who would later be known as ‘oligarchs’. Thus, they did fulfill in bringing Russia to its knees. Revenge Round 1 done.
Think also of the current Ukraine crisis initiated by the Ashkenazi Victoria Nuland in the US State Department with her neo-con Ashkenazi husband Robert Kagan working in the background via powerful organizations such as Project for a New American Century, the Brookings Institution and Council on Foreign Relations. The Ashkenazi George Soros also contributed financially to the Ukrainian Maidan ‘Revolution’. In the end their sole purpose is to destroy Russia once again because Russia has had the gall to rise from its still warm Ashkenazi-induced ashes and because Russia has had the temerity to arrest their well placed thieving agents known as ‘oligarchs’ with some fleeing the country. Revenge Round 2 in progress.
After the destruction of their last country, the Ashkenazim scattered throughout Russia and Europe and called themselves Errant Jews – meaning Roaming (Khazarian/Sakadean or Scythian) Jews. And that label had nothing to do with a longing for Palestine but a longing for Khazaria or perhaps a longing for a new land, any new land. Here’s an excerpt from Wikipedia:
In 1903 Theodore Herzl presented the British Uganda Program at the Sixth Zionist Congress in Basel.
In the late 1930s, the British Zionist League considered a number of other places where a Jewish homeland could be established. The Kimberley region in Australia was considered until the Curtin government (in office: 1941–1945) rejected the possibility.
With the support of the then Premier of Tasmania, Robert Cosgrove (in office from 1939), Critchley Parker proposed a Jewish settlement at Port Davey, in south west Tasmania. Parker surveyed the area, but his death in 1942 put an end to the idea.
The Jewish Autonomous Oblast set up in the Russian Far East in 1934, represented a Soviet approach to providing a Jewish homeland.
Now note that all these attempts were being orchestrated by mostly Ashkenazi Jews. Subsequently a great number reluctantly assimilated themselves throughout the Americas and Palestine now known as Israel. In their adoptive countries including Europe the Ashkenazim have become financial and influential powerhouses not because they’re Jews – at heart the majority of them are really not religious at all and could care less – but because they’re a smart and tough people who have learned much from their roaming throughout history. They assimilate themselves fast and hard. They’re the ultimate Nomads.
Now, could it be that, after two successive ideological failures in the forms of Communism and the current slow motion destruction of Zionism, somewhere deep inside the minds of die-hard Ashkenazi leaders lies a plan for a new re-invention? The re-conquest of their Khazar Khaganate maybe? A land that is now situated deep inside Russia and encompasses Ukraine and Crimea? Is that why Putin suddenly reattached Crimea to Russia? Will they be okay with just Ukraine?
? Jamais deux sans trois.
Sephardim is derived from the word Sephard or Sepharad. It appears only once in the Bible in a prophecy by Obadiah to Edom:
“And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel shall possess that of the Canaanites, even unto Zarephath; and the captivity of Jerusalem, which is in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south.” Obadiah 1:20
No one knows for certain where Sepharad was located. It is strongly believed that it was in Mede where Iran is today. Therefore, people from Sepharad were not descendants of Abraham either because the Medes of Northwest Iran were not Semites but Madaites, of Madai son of Japheth, uncle of Ashkenaz. Therefore the people from Sepharad or Madaites or Medes now know as Sephardic Jews are JAPHETHITES not Semites. This is why when Modern Israel was founded in 1948, the only Muslim countries to have recognized it first were the non-Semitic, non-Arab countries of Turkey and Iran because the people of these two countries share the same bloodline as both the Ashkenazim and the Sephardim. It would also explain why the biggest Jewish community in the Middle East outside the ‘non-existent’ ever-expanding borders of the modern Zionist state is in Iran where all of them refuse to emigrate to Israel since they consider themselves to be Iranians who just happen to be Jews instead of Muslims or Christians. Basically, the Iranian Jews did not buy into the brainwashing the other Jews who voluntarily relocated to Israel fell for.
The ancient Judahites of Jerusalem, Capital of the tribe and of the land/state of Judah, were in captivity in Sepharad, but the Lord had promised them deliverance which did occur in biblical times soon after Obadiah’s prophecy to Edom sometime in mid-fifth century B.C. So, the captive biblical Judahites in Sepharad did return to their homeland in Judah, one of the 7 lots of the Hebrew Kingdom (Joshua 14-19). However, many people from Sepharad converted to the religion of their ancient captives and many Judahites also stayed back mixing it up with the locals as was often the case throughout Biblical Israel’s history when God would send them into exile. Eventually, many Sephardic Jews emigrated. A lot of them went to Europe, especially to Spain and Portugal where they made a new home on the Iberian peninsula which was itself originally settled by Madai’s brother Tubal, also son of Japheth. Blood calls unto blood, doesn’t it?
It seems that people today have forgotten that Ancient Israel, unlike Modern Israel and much like Biblical Israel’s offspring, the Christian Church, was a proselytizing nation which wanted people all over the world to know and pray to the true God of the Universe. Let’s hear Jesus:
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.” Matthew 23:15
When these folks converted, they didn’t miraculously become Hebrews. How could anyone? The people of Sepharad like all the others who converted to the religion of the ancient Judahites only professed to worship the God of Abraham and to adhere to the various rules of the faith. They maintained their own cultures and identities. Much like all the nations that converted to Christianity.
As a matter of fact, ‘Jew’ is not a biblical word. It is an indicative and descriptive term which points to someone who follows and adheres to the faith of the ancient Judahites. Much like those who believe in Christ are called Christians in honor of the one whom they follow. Nowhere in the Bible is the word Jew or Jewish uttered. In both the Old Testament Hebrew and the New Testament Greek the translated word is always meant to be Judahite(s), of the physical tribe and stock of Judah, not of the converted. The Bible translators hired by King James VI and I of England to produce the King James Bible are the ones who mistranslated Judahites as Jews since during that time ‘Jews’ were living in their midst and therefore erroneously thought these were the same people. All other bibles since then followed suit.
According to Jewish traditions, even the prophet Obadiah himself who prophesied about the ancient Judahites in Sepharad was a convert. He was an Edomite, not a Hebrew. Now, Edom was the brother of Jacob or Israel. His country was situated on portions of both present day Jordan and Palestine. So why did God pick an Edomite preacher and not a Hebrew one? Because God knows very well that a prophet is never accepted in his own home – ask Jesus. And because God wanted Edom to pay for what he had done to his brother Jacob He called on an Edomite prophet to warn them knowing the homegrown prophet would be rejected. Otherwise, he would have sent an Israelite like he did with Jonah the Hebrew in Nineveh (Modern Iraq) where they all repented to Jonah’s chagrin. As expected, Edom did not repent and suffered the consequences. But Judah did return home. God did the same thing to the Hebrews. He sent them one of their own, Jesus, so He could get revenge for all the prophets they had killed, Jesus included. But the Church was born.
Today many virulent Zionist Jews hate Arab Muslims, especially Palestinian Muslims, even though they both worship the same God, the God of Abraham, just like all Jews supposedly do and just like ancient converts by the Hebrews used to do. The converts of old used to live amongst the Hebrews with no problem. God even commanded it.
“If a stranger lives as a foreigner with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. The stranger who lives as a foreigner with you shall be to you as the native-born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you lived as foreigners in the land of Egypt. I am Yahweh your God.” Leviticus 19:33-34
But modern-day Israeli leaders refuse co-existence because the whole conflict is about their thirst for land. And more land. One would think that because of the many similarities they have with the Muslims such as circumcision and the like and because of the fact that Judaism and Islam are – like Catholicism and Protestantism – two different branches of the same faith that the Zionists would concede to live in harmony. But they don’t want to. And that’s because it’s not about faith. It’s not about God and the Bible or God and His promises and commandments. It’s about land. And more land. They want the whole enchilada. The whole pie. It’s an Ashkenazi obsession which they have successfully spread to their co-religionists. And that obsession has turned an entire people toward a malignant racism that has morphed into an Apartheid system worse than the one that took shape in South Africa. So much so that the whole country is openly talking about the genocide of the Palestinians living among them, mistreating them or killing them or bombing them at will in the hope they will leave the land in disgust.
Ironically, though Islam and Judaism are similar in many ways, where they differ greatly is in their belief of who Jesus Christ was. Muslims believe that Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit and of the Virgin Mary, was a prophet to the ancient Israelites, was not crucified to death, went to heaven without dying and is expected to return soon. However, according to Talmudic Jews, Jesus was a demon-possessed liar who is now boiling in excrement in hell. From Wikipedia, according to the Talmud:
In Gittin 56b, 57a a story is mentioned in which Onkelos summons up the spirit of Yeshu [or Yeshua (Jesus)] who sought to harm Israel. He describes his punishment in the afterlife as boiling in excrement.
In addition, at the 1240 Disputation of Paris, Donin presented the allegation that the Talmud was blasphemous towards Mary, the mother of Jesus (“Miriam” in Hebrew) and this criticism has been repeated by many Christian sources. The texts cited by critics include Sanhedrin 67a, Sanhedrin 106a, and Shabbath 104b.
“Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the Lord swore unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.” Deut 1:8
Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jews are not of the seed of Abraham and especially not of Jacob’s. European and African Jews are not either. Therefore they can’t be the Chosen People since they are not of the Semitic lineage of the 12 Hebrew tribes and for that matter can’t claim the inheritance of the land of Palestine which they have settled. In a just court of law, their self-ascribed right to hold on to the land would be thrown out. Besides, most religious Jews follow the man-inspired Talmud and not the God-inspired Old Testament where God’s promise and commandments are recorded. Only Torah Jews follow the Old Testament and most of them believe that Jews should not be occupying Palestine. They recognize only the current Palestinian government.
Furthermore, the seed of Jacob mentioned in the Bible is prophetically applied to seed, singular, which seed is Jesus Christ who was repeatedly called the Son of David, himself a descendant of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
At first glance, if anyone is to inherit Palestine, it should be Christians, spiritual descendants of Jesus, the seed of Jacob. That understanding was in fact used to execute the evil Crusades of the Middle Ages. Needless to say it is a perverted comprehension of what that particular inheritance means. The true Israel of God is now those who throughout the earth adhere to the New Covenant of Christ. They are called by the new name Christians. Their new promised land is the heavenly paradise promised to Christ’s true followers with their Capital city, the new Jerusalem, being from above. Hence, they are the new Chosen People. Chosen to love and to do good to all and not to lord over anyone.
“Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.” Revelations 3:12 (Emphasis Added)
So now when the Old Testament admonishes us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, we must filter it through the New Covenant. It presently means ‘Pray for all Christians that they may overcome and be part of the peace of the new Jerusalem from above which is encompassed in the new promised land: heaven.’ God is working from a new script, not the obsolete one. Here’s the Apostle Paul’s conclusion on the First (Old) Covenant, Hebrews 8:13: “God has made the first obsolete!” And by the way, obsolete really means obsolete. Done. Kaput. Finito.
The so-called Christian pastors and teachers who impart that the Old Testament favoritism of one particular group of people still applies today do so only to spit and trample on the works of Christ. These wolves in sheep clothing who clamor the drivel that there are two covenants simultaneously at play are only digging themselves deep into hell’s volcanic fire. Christians, stay away from these men! For their whole purpose is to deny the work of Christ and his new covenant which is freely available to all the nations of the earth without respect to color, race, geographical demarcation or spiritual condition. In other words, they want to destroy the new covenant whose aim is to forge a spiritually egalitarian brotherhood of man throughout the earth with Jesus as the loving big brother.
If one is dead set on applying ancestry and racial stock as to who should inherit the land of Palestine, then the Arabs clearly win – the Palestinian Arabs to be more precise. For Arabs of the Middle East, which include cultural Arabs such as Chaldeans, Assyrians, Aramaics, Phoenicians and Syriacs, are the only living bloodline descendants of Abraham and the only true Semites, not converted Jews.
The Palestinian Arabs have inhabited the land for close to 2000 years since the destruction of Judah/Israel by Rome in AD 70. That famed destruction is known as the Apocalypse or Armageddon or the Great Tribulation or the End of the Age as prophesied by Christ Himself and by the Apostle John throughout the entire book of Revelations (see The Days of Vengeance and/or The Great Tribulation both by David Chilton for an in-depth expose). That particular destruction saw the end of the Hebrew race except for those converted to Christianity who fled the country before the great tribulation and massacre as recorded by Josephus in The Jewish War. If there are any Christian Hebrews left, they’d be cultural Arabs by now living in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan or Palestine. But chances are they’ve intermarried with other Semitic Christians in the area.
Before the End of the Age of the Hebrews, the entire exercise or raison d’être of the 12 chosen Biblical Tribes was just God’s way of nurturing a people so He could arrive on earth in the person of the Messiah Jesus. He distributed them across 7 lots throughout the land of Canaan (Joshua 14-19) and kept track of them through endless censuses even when they were in exile. That whole endeavor was God building Himself an earthly home and family for when He finally decided to visit. And once that was done, He loved it so much He decided He now wanted the entire human race to be His new family. To those Hebrews who accepted Him, he warned them to leave the land as judgment was about to fall on those who rejected and crucified Him – hence the Armageddon or the destruction of an entire people.
That is why today the 12 Hebrew Tribes are no longer around. And they can’t and won’t be ‘found’ either. God would have been very capable of keeping track of them as He has done before. Besides when was the last time you heard of a Jewish prophet whom God sent to anoint a King over modern Israel as He used to do in the old days? What of the animal sacrifices? What of the lamb to be killed and eaten during Passover like Jesus did when He established the new covenant with his disciples, a lamb that was killed and eaten in a private home? The sacrifice of the Passover Lamb in the Hebrew home was God’s very contract with each individual ancient Hebrew and that’s why Jesus repeated it with his disciples in order to introduce the new contract. Do today’s Jews kill a lamb for Passover in their own homes to keep the old contract alive? Is modern Israel divided into 7 lots as God directed Joshua with each tribe settling on his own parcel? Are the bloodline descendants of the Levites still around to restock a future Temple because no other Hebrew tribe can?
To today’s Jews – and the rest of the non-Christian world, Muslims included – we say come on over to Messiah Jesus’ side. It’s about time for true peace, the peace that passes all understanding. Leave obsolescence behind and join the spiritual brotherhood of mankind in Christ Jesus.
To all Israelis, we say denounce and renounce your Zionist leaders for just as they sold you out to Hitler and his 150,000 Jewish soldiers, they will sell you out once more to be butchered. Do not think for a minute that they have your best interest at heart. No government in the world has the best interest of their people at heart. Otherwise why have they led you into a country under false pretense and brainwashed you to hate all your Muslim neighbors when you are surrounded on all sides by these very neighbors? Where will you run to when all hell breaks loose? Into the sea? Isn’t that what they’ve been telling you over and over that ‘they’ want to run the Jews into the sea? By that meme they’re getting you accustomed to that very idea for when it actually happens. The sea is the only place where they have not created enemies for you and they would if they could. They want to watch you flail and drown while they fly away in their private jets to Switzerland after they have stolen all your money and transferred it to some tax haven only to reinvent themselves somewhere else. Ask George Soros how he did it during World War 2. If you still don’t believe it, then remember why and how you got to Palestine.
1900 years after that fateful event called The Apocalypse, Ashkenazi Zionists, under the same pretext as that used by the so called ‘Christian’ Crusaders, flooded into Palestine armed with terror and violence and backed by the imperial might of England. Many political analysts and historians of that time saw the Jewish invasion of Palestine as an English imperial project, this time using Zionist Jews as cannon fodder much like Zionist ‘Christians’ were used during the Middle Ages when the Europeans’ goal was to plunder the area and control the Mediterranean.
Now, the English empire wanted a beachhead to keep the Middle East in turmoil and divided so as to conquer and control the Arabs who control the oil while keeping their own hands on the wells’ spigots. It was a mutually beneficial arrangement: the Ashkenazim got their land and the Empire got an outpost. But, the empire not only wanted to keep the Arabs divided, they also wanted to Keep Israeli society divided and weak. So the Israeli leaders delivered: Ashkenazim and European Jews discriminate against Sephardic and African Jews as Ashkenazim and European Jews control most everything in the country – Russian Jews who mostly are pretend Jews escaped the Soviet Union courtesy of the US and now constitute a fifth column – Orthodox Jews hate all the non-religious Jews and vice versa – Israeli Arabs are kept as third-class citizens with Sephardic and North African Jews as second class and Black African Jews as no class – Most Israeli Jews hate the Palestinians either in the occupied territories or within Israel itself and would love to excise them from the land while the Palestinians under the weight of over 60 years of occupation would love to see the Jews finally leave so they could become free of Apartheid. To say the whole country is a mess is an understatement.
Unfortunately today, imperial America is somewhat loosely controlling this Sparta-like project called Israel. And they’re doing so without regard for the people in the region and what it will cost innocent Jews, Muslims and Christians. The time is fast approaching when Israel will no longer be of use to a defunct imperial power. That’s how it was in the past and that’s how it’ll be soon. And frankly the empire is not the real culprit here. That’s how empires always act especially after they collapse. Use and discard. Besides, how many times did America try to coax Israel into making peace and Israel’s leaders always turned intransigent? There are so many times you can bite the hand that feeds you, especially if the feeding is to the tune of billions of dollars a year.
The mostly Ashkenazim and European Zionist leaders are to blame. There are too many red flags. Have they forgotten the stain that the Crusades left on Christianity? Do they not remember how the Christian Crusades ended? Have they no knowledge of history to understand how empire after empire lost Palestine? Do they even ask themselves what their own Crusade will leave behind this time? Have they not witnessed what happened to Apartheid South Africa? And most importantly why do they not make a just and lasting peace with all of their neighbors even if they lose considerable land? Isn’t peace better? Frankly, these leaders don’t give a hoot.
Together with imperial America, the Zionist leaders have ignited the suffering of millions of innocents, Christians and Muslims, who are presently living in torment not only in Palestine but throughout the Middle East. This has been orchestrated in order to create a cauldron they hope to pour on all the inhabitants of the area, Israelis included.
CONCLUSION: A LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12
The Beast Satan is hell-bent on making the land of Palestine suffer for having brought about Jesus, the Prince of Peace. He’s been tormenting that land for over 2000 years with the ultimate goal of punishing Abraham’s only biological descendants, the Arabs. That’s his way of trying to eliminate that entire bloodline so as to remove any physical vestige of the kinsmen of the One who beat him on the cross. He sees these Arabs, especially the Arab Christians, as representing a line in the sand, a true embodiment of the obsolete First Covenant which Satan cleverly used to kill Christ but is now rendered void by the resurrected Messiah. By somewhat ‘reconstructing’ the First Covenant on its original land he has pushed the Middle East on the edge of the abyss in order to deplete the area of Christians and to kill as many real Semites as he can. All these interminable conflicts are causing Christians to leave in droves and destroying the future of millions. And if you still doubt the hate that has been carefully nurtured and managed against Arabs, especially in the past decades, then you’ve been living in a hole.
To Satan’s horror when Jesus rose from the dead, that old cunning Dragon started running amok. He realized he had been defeated. He thought he could kill God on earth so he could run the show. And just like he deceived the Ancient Hebrew leaders into killing Christ, he’s now playing the Ashkenazim leaders like a fiddle – he’s the real fiddler on the region’s roof. No peace. Just endless war. After all peace reminds him of the Prince of Peace. Can’t have that. So now, he has his eyes set on bringing his play to the next level: finish off the real Semites and devour the Western world which Christian civilization has brought about. And the way he wants to proceed is through a major nuclear war he hopes to start in the Middle East. Basically kill two birds with one stone.
But to make the war real big and engulf all Christendom he has to involve the Ashkenazim’s arch nemesis: Russia, which holds an arsenal of about 8,000 nuclear missiles. And the way to do that is through Syria or Iran since they both have a mutual defense pact while at the same time setting fire in Russia’s underbelly, Ukraine, hoping the fire will spread throughout Russia, Europe and the US. But even Satan knows this is something the Israelis can’t bring to fruition by themselves. So better get the Israelis’ slaves to do it. In other words, better goad the Russian bear by wagging the American dog. The dog can’t really say no because AIPAC has got it by the balls. And remember, AIPAC is controlled by powerful Ashkenazim-American business leaders. Are you getting the full picture now?
This future nuclear war Satan wants so bad is being called World War 3 or the War to End all Wars. A war that would leave the Middle East and the Western world in nuclear ashes. That’s why Satan’s demon-possessed mammonish minions and warmongers are endlessly blabbing in the mainstream media about defense spending, terrorists, preemptive wars, war on terror and nuclear first strikes. But wait, there might still be hope. We can change things. Remember how we stalled the last attempted American attack on Syria which was planned and pushed by AIPAC? We can still have the victory. Unless you sit and do nothing. Then this would kick in: WW3. Jamais deux sans trois.
“And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.” Revelations 15:2

GEORGE GALLOWAY EXPOSES THE SHAME OF AMERICA
This is hard to listen to, especially for someone like myself who was raised to admire America as the land of the free and the home of the brave. We believed that America was there to be a shining light to a world embroiled in darkness. We fought for the little guy, opposed tyranny and were available to help wherever help was needed.
It's not easy to let a British MP lecture us on the atrocities of Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and other nations. It's not easy to accept the fact that the U.S. government not only does not fight for freedom, but most often opposes it. It's not easy to be confronted with millions of dead at our hands over the years.
Most Americans do not want to see this. Apathy is our refuge. If we don't see it or hear it, then it doesn't exist. It is that apathy which is responsible for a government gone insane. It's that apathy which has doomed America to the same fate as Rome, Greece, Egypt, Germany and the Soviet Union. As we study those past empires, it becomes more and more difficult to see how we are different. Well, I suppose we can sing God Bless America or chant “USA” over and over again. Yeah, that will make it all O.K.

RUSSIA THREATENS MILITARY RESPONSE AGAINST UKRAINE
The Ukraine civil war has spilled over on to Russian territory as the Army of Ukraine has shelled Russian territory. 1 resident was killed and 2 were injured in the attack. This is a difficult situation for President Putin and the Russian government. They have done their best to stay out of this civil war as sooner or later this Ukraine junta is bound to fail.
Maybe that's why the government in Kiev is doing all they can to provoke a Russian response. To be sure, Ukraine would have no chance whatsoever, of prevailing in a military war with Russia, but maybe they are hoping for a wider war. If Russia responds militarily, NATO may also become involved. Of course NATO means the United States.
So, if these “insaniacs” get their wish, it could lead to that nuclear war these nuts want. Maybe there's no way out. As I have said many times, the American public seems like they will put up with anything. I guess that includes a nuclear war, but---- would a nuclear war disrupt TV shows, or baseball or football or basketball or movies or gaming or texting? Now we're talking about a disaster.

Russia doesn't rule out 'selective' strikes on Ukraine – media reports
© Collage: Voice of Russia
Moscow is considering a possibility of "pinpoint strikes" on Ukraine to retaliate against the bombardment of suburbs of Donetsk, Rostov region, Kommersant daily said, citing a source close to the Kremlin. The source said Russia "knew exactly where the gunfire was coming from." He noted that would not be a massive action but pinpoint strikes on the positions from where they were firing on Russia.
A similar idea has been suggested by Federation Council Vice-Speaker Yevgeny Bushmin, a representative of the Rostov region. In his opinion, precision weapons are able to stop shooting from the Ukrainian side.
The suburbs of Donetsk, Rostov region, came under fire early on Sunday morning when the Ukrainian army and the militia were fighting for control over the Izvaryno border checkpoint. A shell fired from Ukraine blew up in the yard of 47, Baltiyskaya Street. The explosion killed local resident Andrei Shulyatyev born in 1967.
Another shell hit a nearby house and injured a mother and a daughter. The 82-year-old woman was taken to a hospital. Her condition is serious: she has bone fractures and a concussion.
Moscow considers shelling another aggressive act by Kiev against sovereign territory, Russians
The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned Ukraine's charge d'affaires in Russia on Sunday to present a strong protest over the shelling of Russian territory from the Ukrainian side of the border. The incident may have "irreversible consequences," the ministry warned in an official statement released on Sunday. Russia regards Sunday's provocation as "yet another act of aggression on the part of Ukraine against sovereign Russian territory and citizens of the Russian Federation," the statement says.
Earlier, shells fired from Ukrainian side hit several houses in the border town of Donetsk in Russia's southern Rostov region, killing one person and injuring two others.
Russia vows tough measures against Ukraine after shooting incident in Rostov region - Foreign Ministry
Russia is considering a tough response in the wake of a shooting incident in its southern Rostov region where a shell fired from the Ukrainian side of the border hit a house, killing one person, Deputy Foreign Miniser Grigory Karasin said on Sunday.
"We are investigating the incident. It's a sign of a dangerous rise in tension on the border. This is a qualitatively higher degree of danger to our citizens… Therefore, our demarches will be tough and precise. But first, we need to clarify all the circumstances of the incident," the diplomat said.
On Sunday morning, one person was killed and two others wounded after shells fired from the Ukrainian side hit several houses in the town of Donetsk in Russia's southern Rostov region, bordering Ukraine.
Russia's Investigative Committee has launched a criminal case in relation to the death of a man in the Donetsk district of the Rostov region after a shell from Ukrainian territory exploded, spokesman for the committee Vladimir Markin told Interfax on Sunday.
The investigative department of the committee for the Southern Federal District launched a criminal group murder enquiry into the case of two or more persons acting in a manner dangerous to the public, he said.
Markin said that a shell flew into the yard of a private homestead in the town of Donetsk, Rostov region, on July 13, killing a man who was born in 1968. In addition, a woman was injured by the shock wave.

ISRAELIS PICNIC AS MILITARY BOMBS GAZA
The subject picture shows some Israelis watching the bombardment of Gaza from a hilltop as they picnic. Yesterday, I posted a few verses from the Talmud describing Palestinians (and all non Jews) as animals, among other things. Apparently, those who seek an entertaining evening, can add the killing of non Jews, to the merriment.
I have paid careful attention to the media coverage of this military adventure. They make it a point to draw attention to the “rockets” fired from Palestinian controlled areas. It should be pointed out that these “rockets” are junk. They often explode in mid air and have yet to kill a single Israeli.
I have also posted a quick synopsis of Israel military strength. Keep in mind the Palestinians have no aircraft, no tanks, no space age missiles, no nuclear weapons, no official army, no phosphorous
warheads, no depleted uranium munitions and no navy. So, of course, it makes perfect sense that they would want to start a war with Israel.

MURDER AND TERROR IN GAZA
Last month 3 teenagers were found murdered in Israel. There is no conclusive evidence as to who did it. The story from the Israeli government has been brought into question as there are many contradictions, yet that government has chosen to go on a killing rampage in Gaza.
Those of us who have been educated in the U.S. school system, have all learned about the Holocaust committed by elements within the government in Nazi Germany. These events were a main impetus for the formation of what is now called, Israel. Because of those events those residing in Israel have been given special consideration not available to the vast majority of those residing in other nations. The Israel government is given billions of dollars in aid as well as state of the art military weapons. The State of Israel has been allowed to develop and deploy between 400 and 600 nuclear weapons. The State of Israel has been allowed to ignore scores of UN resolutions. The State of Israel has been allowed to avoid signing the international nuclear proliferation treaty.
On top of all of that, the State of Israel has been allowed to shell, bomb, oppress and attack civilians in the West Bank and Gaza for any reason they want. Of course, Israel always claims they are provoked. In this latest case, even if some in Gaza killed these boys ( and there is no evidence whatsoever that it happened that way), is it right to launch attacks on hundreds of thousand of civilians? There is much more to say, but let me add this: As a Christian and as an American, It was not my intention to enable the new nation state of Israel to become the new Nazis of the middle east. As despicable as the actions of the Nazis were in the 1930's and 1940's, the actions of the Israeli government is no better. Murder is murder and racism is racism --- no matter who does it.

A View from Gaza: We Hug the Children as the Bombs Fall
GAZA – Written Between 3 am and 4 am early Wednesday morning, July 9, 2014.
I do not know what is going on and I can hear successive bombing. I am thinking of all the people I know tonight, especially my colleagues at the hospitals who are working under severe pressure and lacking basic medical supplies. Stay strong.
I heard they bombed the area around the European hospital east of Khan Younis in Southern Gaza… Then the hospital was directly targeted. The hospital wall was damaged at 1 am due to the strong shelling. Then shelling continued with approximately 30 airstrikes.
Israeli forces killed six children when a missile struck a residential building in the southern Gaza city of Khan Younis on Wednesday, July 9, 2014. (Photo: Defense of Children International-Palestine)
When civilians took refuge at the hospital, they targeted it again.
The roof of the intensive care unit was damaged and the windows were blown out. Now at around 3 am, six patients inside the intensive care unit and 20 children inside the pediatric ward have had to be evacuated.
At the hospital, two injuries were reported, including one nurse.
I do not have any comment… I leave it to you to comment. For me, this is nothing new. This is normal behavior of the Israeli army.
Human rights violations against health centers and workers have always been the case when Israel invades.
On a personal level, I am thinking of all people, especially my cousins, who took refuge in the hospital.
At 4:15 am, there were explosions very close to my apartment. The Gaza port was just hit with at one least bomb. Nobody in Palestine is asleep tonight.
Oh no! It is next to my building, so loud I am on the floor with neighbors and children, who are so terrified and shocked.
Shattered windows terrify the children… These are vicious attacks… We are all on the floor.
An hour later, we hug each other while the children cling to adults… The bombs are so close.
Now, after a few minutes, I distract the neighbors’ kids by showing some nice drawings sent with love and solidarity from Canada and Australia. The children laugh. I say, at this moment life is stronger than death. One day justice will prevail.
Dr. Mona El-Farra, Director of Gaza Projects for the
Middle East Children’s Alliance, is a physician by training and a human rights and women’s rights activist by practice in the occupied Gaza Strip. She was born in Khan Younis, Gaza and has dedicated herself to developing community based programs that aim to improve health quality and link health services with cultural and recreation services all over the Gaza Strip. Dr. El-Farra is also the Health Chair of the Palestinian Red Crescent Society of the Gaza Strip and a member of the Union of Health Work Committees. Dr. El-Farra has a son and two daughters.

Sarah Palin: 'It's Time to Impeach' President Obama
Wow! I actually agree with Sara Palin. This, in itself, is a miracle. The subject covers the massive influx of illegal aliens promoted by the Obama administration. Just today, the President asked for almost $4 billion dollars to cover some of these expenses. What he didn't cover is the fact that we don't have $4 billion dollars. We, as a nation, are trillions of dollars in debt. That debt increases by over $2 billion dollars a day. And that's without this latest adventure.
Having said all this and taking in the comments by Sara Palin, this Congress will never impeach Obama. It doesn't matter what he does, they won't do it. Most of them are criminals themselves, including most of Palin's Republican contemporaries. They only answer is “They have to go”, all of them. This includes the upper level bureaucrats and the Supreme Court. Once they go, we can have new elections under the Constitution, forbidding current office holders from participating.
Before you roll your eyes on this, remember 2 things. This solution was called for in the Declaration of Independence and was later endorsed by Thomas Jefferson. The second thing to remember is, what if we don't get rid of them? That answer is easy. The United States collapses, bedlam ensues, millions die and this, once great nation goes on to the ash heap of history. Now, which path should we take?

Sarah Palin: It Is Time To Impeach Obama
by Sarah Palin 8 Jul 2014, 8:05 AM PDT
Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, “no mas.”
Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It’s the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for America’s exceptionalism over our history, he’s given false hope and taxpayer’s change to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally. Because of Obama’s purposeful dereliction of duty an untold number of illegal immigrants will kick off their shoes and come on in, competing against Americans for our jobs and limited public services. There is no end in sight as our president prioritizes parties over doing the job he was hired by voters to do. Securing our borders is obviously fundamental here; it goes without saying that it is his job.
The federal government is trillions of dollars in debt; many cities are on the verge of insolvency; our overrun healthcare system, police forces, social services, schools, and our unsustainably generous welfare-state programs are stretched to the max. We average Americans know that. So why has this issue been allowed to be turned upside down with our “leader” creating such unsafe conditions while at the same time obstructing any economic recovery by creating more dependents than he allows producers? His friendly wealthy bipartisan elite, who want cheap foreign labor and can afford for themselves the best “border security” money can buy in their own exclusive communities, do not care that Obama tapped us out.
Have faith that average American workers – native-born and wonderful legal immigrants of all races, backgrounds, and political parties – do care because we’re the ones getting screwed as we’re forced to follow all our government’s rules while others are not required to do so. Many now feel like strangers in their own land. It’s the American worker who is forced to deal with Obama’s latest crisis with our hard-earned tax dollars while middle class wages decrease, sustainable jobs get more scarce, and communities become unrecognizable and bankrupted due to Obama’s flood of illegal immigration.
Who’s looking out for the American workers? Who has their backs? Who fights for them?
President Obama’s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here. It’s not going to get better, and in fact irreparable harm can be done in this lame-duck term as he continues to make up his own laws as he goes along, and, mark my words, will next meddle in the U.S. Court System with appointments that will forever change the basic interpretation of our Constitution’s role in protecting our rights.
It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.
The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.

CURRENT MAP OF IMMIGRANT INVASION
The subject article, video and map covers the different places around the U.S. where illegal aliens are being located or are attempted to be located.
The question remains, What will Americans tolerate from their government masters? The answer remains, ANYTHING. We keep hoping that Americans by the millions will demonstrate they are fed up. Indeed, as the video shows, some pockets of resistance to the current invasion of illegals are beginning to spring up.
Where in history, is there an example of blatant lawlessness on the part of the federal government? Yes, there are some things out there, like the antics of Richard Nixon, but that was exposed and dealt with. As near as I can tell, the events of the past 10 or 15 years are the first of its' kind in American history --- and it keeps getting worse. Maybe this last fiasco will do it. I hope so.

The Obama administration is illegally relocating illegal immigrants all over the United States.

Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death
Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775.
No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The questing before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.
I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House. Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free-- if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending--if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained--we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!
They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable--and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

WOULD AMERICANS CHOOSE FREEDOM TODAY?
The subject article puts forth this question in comparing the choice made in 1776 by our ancestors, to today. Sadly, we Americans are only a faint shadow of those who led our move to independence in 1776 and the war of independence thereafter.
Victor Hugo said “Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters”. We, in America, have been blessed with unrivaled prosperity over the past 150 years. Instead of using these blessings to create a better society, we have used it to create decadence. The spirit of 1776 is gone. Most in America don't even know what it stands for. This 4th of July, we are being treated to one military display after another, as if that is what 1776 was all about.
Quite the contrary. In the Declaration of Independence, courageous men publicly proclaimed their opposition to this type of military empire and being subject to it. They backed up their opposition with everything they had – their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. Even as recently as 50 years ago, hundreds of thousands of Americans took to the streets to oppose the military empire and coming police state being created then. They succeeded, albeit temporarily. Today, as the police state has reared its' ugly head, today's Americans can barely muster a whimper. This is why nations fail. More often than not, they don't get conquered from outside, they rot from the inside.
Bruce New World Order News
238 Years Later, Would Americans Still Choose Freedom Over Slavery?
Imagine living in a country where armed soldiers crash through doors to arrest and imprison citizens merely for criticizing government officials. Imagine that in this very same country, you’re watched all the time, and if you look even a little bit suspicious, the police stop and frisk you or pull you over to search you on the off chance you’re doing something illegal. Keep in mind that if you have a firearm of any kind while in this country, it may get you arrested and, in some circumstances, shot by police.
If you’re thinking this sounds like America today, you wouldn’t be far wrong. However, the scenario described above took place more than 200 years ago, when American colonists suffered under Great Britain’s version of an early police state. It was only when the colonists finally got fed up with being silenced, censored, searched, frisked, threatened, and arrested that they finally revolted against the tyrant’s fetters.
No document better states their grievances than the Declaration of Independence. A document seething with outrage over a government which had betrayed its citizens, the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776, by 56 men who laid everything on the line, pledged it all—“our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor”—because they believed in a radical idea: that all people are created to be free.
Labeled traitors, these men were charged with treason, a crime punishable by death. For some, their acts of rebellion would cost them their homes and their fortunes. For others, it would be the ultimate price—their lives. Yet even knowing the heavy price they might have to pay, these men dared to speak up when silence could not be tolerated. Even after they had won their independence from Great Britain, these new Americans worked to ensure that the rights they had risked their lives to secure would remain secure for future generations. The result: our Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the Constitution.
Imagine the shock and outrage these 56 men would feel were they to discover that 238 years later, the government they had risked their lives to create has been transformed into a militaristic police state in which exercising one’s freedoms is often viewed as a flagrant act of defiance. Indeed, had the Declaration of Independence been written today, it would have rendered its signers terrorists, resulting in them being placed on a government watch list, targeted for surveillance of their activities and correspondence, and potentially arrested, held indefinitely, stripped of their rights and labeled enemy combatants.
Indeed, as I document in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, a cursory review of the true state of our freedoms as outlined in the Bill of Rights shows exactly how dismal things have become:
The First Amendment is supposed to protect the freedom to speak your mind and protest in peace without being bridled by the government. It also protects the freedom of the media, as well as the right to worship and pray without interference. In other words, Americans cannot be silenced by the government. Yet despite the clear protections found in the First Amendment, the freedoms described therein are under constant assault. Whether it’s a Marine detained for criticizing the government on Facebook, a reporter persecuted for refusing to reveal his sources, or a protester arrested for standing silently in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, these are dangerous times for those who choose to exercise their rights.
The Second Amendment was intended to guarantee “the right of the people to keep and bear arms.” Yet while gun ownership has been recognized as an individual citizen right, Americans continue to face an uphill battle in the courts when it comes to defending themselves against militarized, weaponized government agents armed to the hilt. In fact, court rulings in recent years have affirmed that citizens don’t have the right to resist police officers who enter their homes illegally, mistakenly or otherwise.
The Third Amendment reinforces the principle that civilian-elected officials are superior to the military by prohibiting the military from entering any citizen’s home without “the consent of the owner.” Unfortunately, the wall of separation between civilian and military policing has been torn down in recent years, as militarized SWAT teams are now allowed to burst into homes unannounced in order to investigate minor crimes such as marijuana possession and credit card fraud. With domestic police increasingly posing as military forces—complete with weapons, uniforms, assault vehicles, etc.—a good case could be made for the fact that SWAT team raids constitute the forced quartering of soldiers within the private home, which the Third Amendment was written to prevent.
The Fourth Amendment prohibits government agents from touching you or placing you under surveillance or entering your property without probable cause and even then, only with a court-sanctioned warrant. Unfortunately, the Fourth Amendment has been all but eviscerated in recent years by court rulings and government programs that sanction all manner of intrusions, including giving police carte blanche authority to break into homes or apartments without a warrant, conduct roadside strip searches, and generally manhandle any person in manner they see fit. Moreover, in the so-called name of national security, intelligence agencies like the National Security Agency now have the ability to conduct mass unwarranted electronic intrusions into the personal and private transactions of all Americans, including phone, mail, computer and medical records. All of this data is available to other government agencies, including local police.
The Fifth Amendment is supposed to ensure that you are innocent until proven guilty, and government authorities cannot deprive you of your life, your liberty or your property without following strict legal guidelines. Unfortunately, those protections have been largely extinguished in recent years, especially in the wake of Congress’ passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which allows the president and the military to arrest and detain Americans indefinitely without due process.
The Sixth Amendment was intended to not only ensure a “speedy and public trial,” but it was supposed to prevent the government from keeping someone in jail for unspecified offenses. That too has been a casualty of the so-called war on terror. Between the NDAA’s indefinite detention clause and the Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) legislation, which has been used as justification for using drones to kill American citizens in the absence of a court trial, the Sixth Amendment’s guarantees become meaningless.
The Seventh Amendment guarantees citizens the right to a jury trial. However, when the populace has no idea of what’s in the Constitution—civic education has virtually disappeared from most school curriculums—that inevitably translates to an ignorant jury incapable of distinguishing justice and the law from their own preconceived notions and fears.
The Eighth Amendment is similar to the Sixth in that it is supposed to protect the rights of the accused and forbid the use of cruel and unusual punishment. However, the Supreme Court’s determination that what constitutes “cruel and unusual” should be dependent on the “evolving standards of decency that mark the progress of a maturing society” leaves us with little protection in the face of a society lacking in morals altogether. America’s continued reliance on the death penalty, which has been shown to be flawed in its application and execution, is a perfect example of this.
The Ninth Amendment provides that other rights not enumerated in the Constitution are nonetheless retained by the people. Popular sovereignty—the belief that the power to govern flows upward from the people rather than downward from the rulers—is clearly evident in this amendment. However, it has since been turned on its head by a centralized federal government that sees itself as supreme and which continues to pass more and more laws that restrict our freedoms under the pretext that it has an “important government interest” in doing so. Thus, once the government began violating the non-enumerated rights granted in the Ninth Amendment, it was only a matter of time before it began to trample the enumerated rights of the people, as explicitly spelled out in the rest of the Bill of Rights.
As for the Tenth Amendment’s reminder that the people and the states retain every authority that is not otherwise mentioned in the Constitution, that assurance of a system of government in which power is divided among local, state and national entities has long since been rendered moot by the centralized Washington, DC power elite—the president, Congress and the courts. Indeed, the federal governmental bureaucracy has grown so large that it has made local and state legislatures relatively irrelevant. Through its many agencies, the federal government has stripped states of the right to regulate countless issues that were originally governed at the local level.
Thus, even on those rare occasions when the courts provide us with a slight glimmer of hope that all may not be lost, those brief reprieves of judicial sensibility are quickly overwhelmed by a bureaucratic machine that continues to march relentlessly in lockstep with the police state.
This brings me back to those 56 men who risked everything—their fortunes and their lives—to speak truth to power in that sweltering Philadelphia heat 238 summers ago. Of those 56 signers, 9 died during the Revolution, 5 were captured by British soldiers, 18 had their homes looted and burned by the Red Coats, 2 were wounded in battle and 2 lost their sons during the war. Remarkably, these men—who were community leaders, business owners, judges, lawyers and inventors—sacrificed their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor so that you and I could live freely in a nation where we have the right to stand up and speak out against tyrannical government. In the face of torture and even death, they did not waver.
The choice before us is clear. In the words of Patrick Henry, will we choose dangerous freedom or peaceful slavery?

COLLECT WATER IN A BARREL? GO TO JAIL.
Ridiculous? In America? Guess again. An Oregon man is going to jail for collecting rain water on his own property. The U.S. now has more people in prison than any other country on earth. That includes China--- population 1.5 billion, and India---population 1 billion. There are so many laws on the books in the U.S., that no one actually knows how many there are or what they are, but rest assured, every day you break the law.
I have repeatedly asked how much Americans will tolerate. Apparently, there is no limit. For our government masters, anything goes. Kill, steal and destroy, it's all good now for those in power, and we here, will do absolutely nothing about it.
So where does it end? Knowing the apathy of the average American, we cannot even see the bottom.

(CNSNews.com) – Gary Harrington, the Oregon man convicted of collecting rainwater and snow runoff on his rural property surrendered Wednesday morning to begin serving his 30-day, jail sentence in Medford, Ore.
“I’m sacrificing my liberty so we can stand up as a country and stand for our liberty,” Harrington told a small crowd of people gathered outside of the Jackson County (Ore.) Jail.
Several people held signs that showed support for Harrington as he was taken inside the jail.
Harrington was found guilty two weeks ago of breaking a 1925 law for having, what state water managers called “three illegal reservoirs” on his property. He was convicted of nine misdemeanors, sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined over $1500 for collecting rainwater and snow runoff on his property.

The Oregon Water Resources Department, claims that Harrington has been violating the state’s water use law by diverting water from streams running into the Big Butte River.
But Harrington says he is not diverting the state's water -- merely collecting rainwater and snow melt that falls or flows on his own property.
Harrington has vowed to continue to fight the penalty, stating that the government has become “big bullies” and that “from here on in, I’m going to fight it.”
“They’ve just gotten to be big bullies and if you just lay over and die and give up, that just makes them bigger bullies, Harrington said in an interview two weeks ago with CNSNews.com.
"We as Americans, we need to stand on our constitutional rights, on our rights as citizens and hang tough. This is a good country, we’ll prevail,” he said.
His release is expected in early September.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS WARS
Before you send your son or daughter to fight in another war or before you yourself go to fight another war for “freedom” or before you rise to your feet to applaud anyone who wears a U.S. military uniform or before you sing a patriotic song, you need to read this expose'.
As one studies history it becomes obvious that the common denominator in all large wars is money. No, not for you. It's for the international bankers. Just yesterday, the head of the IMF, (a group of international bankers) said they will give the thugs ruling Ukraine a big pile of money if they'll go out and kill their own citizens. Today, dozens of Ukraine citizens are dead.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS!
NEW! PODCAST OF 'ALL WARS ARE BANKERS WARS' FROM JANUARY 14TH, 2013 RADIO SHOW.
By Michael Rivero
"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain
I know many people have a great deal of difficulty comprehending just how many wars are started for no other purpose than to force private central banks onto nations, so let me share a few examples, so that you understand why the US Government is mired in so many wars against so many foreign nations. There is ample precedent for this.
The United States fought the American Revolution primarily over King George III's Currency act, which forced the colonists to conduct their business only using printed bank notes borrowed from the Bank of England at interest.
"The bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing." -- William Paterson, founder of the Bank of England in 1694
After the revolution, the new United States adopted a radically different economic system in which the government issued its own value-based money, so that private banks like the Bank of England were not siphoning off the wealth of the people through interest-bearing bank notes.
"The refusal of King George 3rd to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the revolution." -- Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father
Following the revolution, the US Government actually took steps to keep the bankers out of the new government!
"Any person holding any office or any stock in any institution in the nature of a bank for issuing or discounting bills or notes payable to bearer or order, cannot be a member of the House whilst he holds such office or stock." -- Third Congress of the United States Senate, 23rd of December, 1793, signed by the President, George Washington
But bankers are nothing if not dedicated to their schemes to acquire your wealth, and know full well how easy it is to corrupt a nation's leaders. Just one year after Mayer Amschel Rothschild had uttered his infamous "Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws", the bankers succeeded in setting up a new Private Central Bank called the First Bank of the United States, largely through the efforts of the Rothschild's chief US supporter, Alexander Hamilton. Founded in 1791, by the end of its twenty year charter the First Bank of the United States had almost ruined the nation's economy, while enriching the bankers. Congress refused to renew the charter and signaled their intention to go back to a state issued value based currency on which the people paid no interest at all to any banker. This resulted in a threat from Nathan Mayer Rothschild against the US Government, "Either the application for renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war." Congress still refused to renew the charter for the First Bank of the United States, whereupon Nathan Mayer Rothschild railed, "Teach those impudent Americans a lesson! Bring them back to colonial status!" The British Prime Minister at the time, Spencer Perceval was adamently opposed to war with the United States, primarily because the majority of England's military might was occupied with the ongoing Napoleonic wars. Spencer Perceval was concerned that Britain might not prevail in a new American war, a concern shared by many in the British government. Then, Spencer Perceval was assassinated (the only British Prime Minister to be assassinated in office) and replaced by Robert Banks Jenkinson, the 2nd Earl of Liverpool, who was fully supportive of a war to recapture the colonies.
Click for larger image of the Geneva Gazette for July 1, 1912, reporting on the assassination of Spencer Perceval together with the declaration of the War of 1812.
"If my sons did not want wars, there would be none." -- Gutle Schnaper, wife of Mayer Amschel Rothschild and mother of his five sons
Financed at virtually no interest by the Rothschild controlled Bank of England, Britain then provoked the war of 1812 to recolonize the United States and force them back into the slavery of the Bank of England, or to plunge the United States into so much debt they would be forced to accept a new private central bank. And the plan worked. Even though the War of 1812 was won by the United States, Congress was forced to grant a new charter for yet another private bank issuing the public currency as loans at interest, the Second Bank of the United States. Once again, private bankers were in control of the nation's money supply and cared not who made the laws or how many British and American soldiers had to die for it.
Once again the nation was plunged into debt, unemployment, and poverty by the predations of the private central bank, and in 1832 Andrew Jackson successfully campaigned for his second term as President under the slogan, "Jackson And No Bank!" True to his word, Jackson succeeds in blocking the renewal of the charter for the Second Bank of the United States.
"Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out!" -- Andrew Jackson, shortly before ending the charter of the Second Bank of the United States. From the original minutes of the Philadelphia committee of citizens sent to meet with President Jackson (February 1834), according to Andrew Jackson and the Bank of the United States (1928) by Stan V. Henkels
Shortly after President Jackson (the only American President to actually pay off the National Debt) ended the Second Bank of the United States, there was an attempted assassination which failed when both pistols used by the assassin, Richard Lawrence, failed to fire. Lawrence later said that with Jackson dead, "Money would be more plenty."
President Zachary Taylor opposed the creation of a new Private Central Bank, owing to the historical abuses of the First and Second Banks of the United States.
"The idea of a national bank is dead, and will not be revived in my time." -- Zachary Taylor
Taylor died on July 9, 1850 after eating a bowl of cherries and milk rumored to have been poisoned. The symptoms h displayed are consistent with acute arsenic poisoning.
President James Buchanan also opposed a private central bank. During the panic of 1857 he attempted to set limits on banks issuing more loans than they had actual funds, and to require all issued bank notes to be backed by Federal Government assets. He was poisoned with arsenic and survived, although 38 other people at the dinner died.
Of course, the public school system is as subservient to the bankers' wishes to keep certain history from you, just as the corporate media is subservient to Monsanto's wishes to keep the dangers of GMOs from you, and the global warming cult's wishes to conceal from you that the Earth has actually been cooling for the last 16 years. Thus is should come as little surprise that much of the real reasons for the events of the Civil War are not well known to the average American.
"The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests." -- The Rothschild brothers of London writing to associates in New York, 1863
When the Confederacy seceded from the United States, the bankers once again saw the opportunity for a rich harvest of debt, and offered to fund Lincoln's efforts to bring the south back into the union, but at 30% interest. Lincoln remarked that he would not free the black man by enslaving the white man to the bankers and using his authority as President, issued a new government currency, the greenback. This was a direct threat to the wealth and power of the central bankers, who quickly responded.
"If this mischievous financial policy, which has its origin in North America, shall become endurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains, and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe." -- The London Times responding to Lincoln's decision to issue government Greenbacks to finance the Civil War, rather than agree to private banker's loans at 30% interest.
In 1872 New York bankers sent a letter to every bank in the United States, urging them to fund newspapers that opposed government-issued money (Lincoln's greenbacks).
"Dear Sir: It is advisable to do all in your power to sustain such prominent daily and weekly newspapers... as will oppose the issuing of greenback paper money, and that you also withhold patronage or favors from all applicants who are not willing to oppose the Government issue of money. Let the Government issue the coin and the banks issue the paper money of the country... [T]o restore to circulation the Government issue of money, will be to provide the people with money, and will therefore seriously affect your individual profit as bankers and lenders." -- Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
"It will not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate as money any length of time, as we cannot control that." -- Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
"Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power, and chattel slavery destroyed. This, I and my European friends are in favor of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care for the laborer, while the European plan, led on by England, is for capital to control labor by controlling the wages. THIS CAN BE DONE BY CONTROLLING THE MONEY." -- Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
Goaded by the private bankers, much of Europe supported the Confederacy against the Union, with the expectation that victory over Lincoln would mean the end of the Greenback. France and Britain considered an outright attack on the United States to aid the confederacy, but were held at bay by Russia, which had just ended the serfdom system and had a state central bank similar to the system the United States had been founded on. Left free of European intervention, the Union won the war, and Lincoln announced his intention to go on issuing greenbacks. Following Lincoln's assassination, the Greenbacks were pulled from circulation and the American people forced to go back to an economy based on bank notes borrowed at interest from the private bankers. Tsar Alexander II, who authorized Russian militarey assistance to Lincoln, was subsequently the victim of multiple attempts on his life in 1866, 1879, and 1880, until his assassination in 1881.
James A. Garfield was elected President in 1880 on a platform of government control of the money supply.
"The chief duty of the National Government in connection with the currency of the country is to coin money and declare its value. Grave doubts have been entertained whether Congress is authorized by the Constitution to make any form of paper money legal tender. The present issue of United States notes has been sustained by the necessities of war; but such paper should depend for its value and currency upon its convenience in use and its prompt redemption in coin at the will of the holder, and not upon its compulsory circulation. These notes are not money, but promises to pay money. If the holders demand it, the promise should be kept. -- James Garfield
"By the experience of commercial nations in all ages it has been found that gold and silver afford the only safe foundation for a monetary system. Confusion has recently been created by variations in the relative value of the two metals, but I confidently believe that arrangements can be made between the leading commercial nations which will secure the general use of both metals. Congress should provide that the compulsory coinage of silver now required by law may not disturb our monetary system by driving either metal out of circulation. If possible, such an adjustment should be made that the purchasing power of every coined dollar will be exactly equal to its debt-paying power in all the markets of the world. --James Garfield
"He who controls the money supply of a nation controls the nation. -- James Garfield
Garfield was shot on July 2, 1881 and died of his wounds several weeks later. Chester A. Arthur succeeded Garfield as President.
In 1896, William McKinley was elected President in the middle of a depression-driven debate over gold-backed government currency versus bank notes borrowed at interest from private banks. McKinley favored gold-backed currencies and a balanced government budget which would free the public from accumulating debt.
"Our financial system needs some revision; our money is all good now, but its value must not further be threatened. It should all be put upon an enduring basis, not subject to easy attack, nor its stability to doubt or dispute. Our currency should continue under the supervision of the Government. The several forms of our paper money offer, in my judgment, a constant embarrassment to the Government and a safe balance in the Treasury." -- William McKinley
McKinley was shot by an out-of-work anarchist on September 14, 1901, in Buffalo, NY, succumbing to his wounds a few days later. He was suceeded in office by Theodore Roosevelt.
Finally, in 1913, the Private Central Bankers of Europe, in particular the Rothschilds of Great Britain and the Warburgs of Germany, met with their American financial collaborators on Jekyll Island, Georgia to form a new banking cartel with the express purpose of forming the Third Bank of the United States, with the aim of placing complete control of the United States money supply once again under the control of private bankers. Owing to hostility over the previous banks, the name was changed to "The Federal Reserve" system in order to grant the new bank a quasi-governmental image, but in fact it is a privately owned bank, no more "Federal" than Federal Express. Indeed, in 2012, the Federal Reserve attempted to rebuff a Freedom of Information Lawsuit by Bloomberg News on the grounds that as a private banking corporation and not actually a part of the government, the Freedom of Information Act did not apply to the "trade secret" operations of the Federal Reserve.
"When you or I write a check, there must be sufficient funds in our account to cover the check; but when the Federal Reserve writes a check, there is no bank deposit on which that check is drawn. When the Federal Reserve writes a check, it is creating money." -- From the Boston Federal Reserve Bank pamphlet, "Putting it Simply."
"Neither paper currency nor deposits have value as commodities. Intrinsically, a 'dollar' bill is just a piece of paper. Deposits are merely book entries." -- "Modern Money Mechanics Workbook" � Federal Reserve of Chicago, 1975
"I am afraid the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can and do create money. And they who control the credit of the nation direct the policy of Governments and hold in the hollow of their hand the destiny of the people." -- Reginald McKenna, as Chairman of the Midland Bank, addressing stockholders in 1924
"States, most especially the large hegemonic ones, such as the United States and Great Britain, are controlled by the international central banking system, working through secret agreements at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), and operating through national central banks (such as the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve)... The same international banking cartel that controls the United States today previously controlled Great Britain and held it up as the international hegemon. When the British order faded, and was replaced by the United States, the US ran the global economy. However, the same interests are served. States will be used and discarded at will by the international banking cartel; they are simply tools." -- Andrew Gavin Marshall
1913 proved to be a transformative year for the nation's economy, first with the passage of the 16th "income tax" Amendment and the false claim that it had been ratified.
"I think if you were to go back and and try to find and review the ratification of the 16th amendment, which was the internal revenue, the income tax, I think if you went back and examined that carefully, you would find that a sufficient number of states never ratified that amendment." - U.S. District Court Judge James C. Fox, Sullivan Vs. United States, 2003.
Later that same year, and apparently unwilling to risk another questionable amendment, Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act over Christmas holiday 1913, while members of Congress opposed to the measure were at home. This was a very underhanded deal, as the Constitution explicitly vests Congress with the authority to issue the public currency, does not authorize its delegation, and thus should have required a new Amendment to transfer that authority to a private bank. But pass it Congress did, and President Woodrow Wilson signed it as he promised the bankers he would in exchange for generous campaign contributions. Wilson later regretted that decision.
"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit. We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." -- Woodrow Wilson 1919
The next year, World War One started, and it is important to remember that prior to the creation of the Federal Reserve, there was no such thing as a world war.
World War One started between Austria-Hungary and Serbia, but quickly shifted to focus on Germany, whose industrial capacity was seen as an economic threat to Great Britain, who saw the decline of the British Pound as a result of too much emphasis on financial activity to the neglect of agriculture, industrial development, and infrastructure (not unlike the present day United States). Although pre-war Germany had a private central bank, it was heavily restricted and inflation kept to reasonable levels. Under government control, investment was guaranteed to internal economic development, and Germany was seen as a major power. So, in the media of the day, Germany was portrayed as the prime opponent of World War One, and not just defeated, but its industrial base flattened. Following the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was ordered to pay the war costs of all the participating nations, even though Germany had not actually started the war. This amounted to three times the value of all of Germany itself. Germany's private central bank, to whom Germany had gone deeply into debt to pay the costs of the war, broke free of government control, and massive inflation followed (mostly triggered by currency speculators) , permanently trapping the German people in endless debt.
When the Weimar Republic collapsed economically, it opened the door for the National Socialists to take power. Their first financial move was to issue their own state currency which was not borrowed from private central bankers. Freed from having to pay interest on the money in circulation, Germany blossomed and quickly began to rebuild its industry. The media called it "The German Miracle". TIME magazine lionized Hitler for the amazing improvement in life for the German people and the explosion of German industry, and even named him TIME Magazine's Man Of The Year in 1938.
Once again, Germany's industrial output became a threat to Great Britain.
"Should Germany merchandise (do business) again in the next 50 years we have led this war (WW1) in vain." - Winston Churchill in The Times (1919)
"We will force this war upon Hitler, if he wants it or not." - Winston Churchill (1936 broadcast)
"Germany becomes too powerful. We have to crush it." - Winston Churchill (November 1936 speaking to US - General Robert E. Wood)
"This war is an English war and its goal is the destruction of Germany." - Winston Churchill (- Autumn 1939 broadcast)
Germany's state-issued value based currency was also a direct threat to the wealth and power of the private central banks, and as early as 1933 they started to organize a global boycott against Germany to strangle this upstart ruler who thought he could break free of private central bankers!

As had been the case in World War One, Great Britain and other nations threatened by Germany's economic power looked for an excuse to go to war, and as public anger in Germany grew over the boycott, Hitler foolishly gave them that excuse. Years later, in a spirit of candor, the real reasons for that war were made clear.
"The war wasn't only about abolishing fascism, but to conquer sales markets. We could have, if we had intended so, prevented this war from breaking out without doing one shot, but we didn't want to."- Winston Churchill to Truman (Fultun, USA March 1946)
"Germany's unforgivable crime before WW2 was its attempt to loosen its economy out of the world trade system and to build up an independent exchange system from which the world-finance couldn't profit anymore. ...We butchered the wrong pig." -Winston Churchill (The Second World War - Bern, 1960)
As a side note, we need to step back before WW2 and recall Marine Major General Smedley Butler. In 1933, Wall Street bankers and financiers had bankrolled the successful coups by both Hitler and Mussolini. Brown Brothers Harriman in New York was financing Hitler right up to the day war was declared with Germany. And they decided that a fascist dictatorship in the United States based on the one on Italy would be far better for their business interests than Roosevelt's "New Deal" which threatened massive wealth re-distribution to recapitalize the working and middle class of America. So the Wall Street tycoons recruited General Butler to lead the overthrow of the US Government and install a "Secretary of General Affairs" who would be answerable to Wall Street and not the people, would crush social unrest and shut down all labor unions. General Butler pretended to go along with the scheme but then exposed the plot to Congress. Congress, then as now in the pocket of the Wall Street bankers, refused to act. When Roosevelt learned of the planned coup he demanded the arrest of the plotters, but the plotters simply reminded Roosevelt that if any one of them were sent to prison, their friends on Wall Street would deliberatly collapse the still-fragile economy and blame Roosevelt for it. Roosevelt was thus unable to act until the start of WW2, at which time he prosecuted many of the plotters under the Trading With The Enemy act. The Congressional minutes into the coup were finally released in 1967 and became the inspiration for the movie, "Seven Days in May" but with the true financial villains erased from the script.
"I spent 33 years and four months in active military service as a member of our country's most agile military force -- the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from second lieutenant to Major General. And during that period I spent more of my time being a high--class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. "I suspected I was just a part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service. Thus I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-12. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that the Standard Oil went its way unmolested. During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. I was rewarded with honors, medals and promotion. Looking back on it, I feel I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three city districts. I operated on three continents." -- General Smedley Butler, former US Marine Corps Commandant,1935
As President, John F. Kennedy understood the predatory nature of private central banking. He understood why Andrew Jackson fought so hard to end the Second Bank of the United States. So Kennedy wrote and signed Executive Order 11110 which ordered the US Treasury to issue a new public currency, the United States Note.

Kennedy's United States Notes were not borrowed form the Federal Reserve but created by the US Government and backed by the silver stockpiles held by the US Government. It represented a return to the system of economics the United States had been founded on, and was perfectly legal for Kennedy to do. All told, some four and one half billion dollars went into public circulation, eroding interest payments to the Federal Reserve and loosening their control over the nation. Five months later John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas Texas, and the United States Notes pulled from circulation and destroyed (except for samples held by collectors). John J. McCloy, President of the Chase Manhattan Bank, and President of the World Bank, was named to the Warren Commission, presumably to make certain the banking dimensions behind the assassination were concealed from the public.
As we enter the eleventh year of what future history will most certainly describe as World War Three, we need to examine the financial dimensions behind the wars.
Towards the end of World War Two, when it became obvious that the allies were going to win and dictate the post war environment, the major world economic powers met at Bretton Woods, a luxury resort in New Hampshire in July of 1944, and hammered out the Bretton Woods agreement for international finance. The British Pound lost its position as the global trade and reserve currency to the US dollar (part of the price demanded by Roosevelt in exchange for the US entry into the war). Absent the economic advantages of being the world's "go-to" currency, Britain was forced to nationalize the Bank of England in 1946. The Bretton Woods agreement, ratified in 1945, in addition to making the dollar the global reserve and trade currency, obligated the signatory nations to tie their currencies to the dollar. The nations that ratified Bretton Woods did so on two conditions. The first was that the Federal Reserve would refrain from over-printing the dollar as a means to loot real products and produce from other nations in exchange for ink and paper; basically an imperial tax. That assurance was backed up by the second requirement, which was that the US dollar would always be convertible to gold at $35 per ounce.
Of course, the Federal Reserve, being a private bank and not answerable to the US Government, did start overprinting paper dollars, and much of the perceived prosperity of the 1950s and 1960s was the result of foreign nations' obligations to accept the paper notes as being worth gold at the rate of $35 an ounce. Then in 1970, France looked at the huge pile of paper notes sitting in their vaults, for which real French products like wine and cheese had been traded, and notified the United States government that they would exercise their option under Bretton Woods to return the paper notes for gold at the $35 per ounce exchange rate. Of course, the United States had nowhere near the gold to redeem the paper notes, so on August 15th, 1971, Richard Nixon "temporarily" suspended the gold convertibility of the US Federal Reserve Notes. This "Nixon shock" effectively ended Bretton Woods and many global currencies started to delink from the US dollar. Worse, since the United States had collateralized their loans with the nation's gold reserves, it quickly became apparent that the US Government did not in fact have enough gold to cover the outstanding debts. Foreign nations began to get very nervous about their loans to the US and understandably were reluctant to loan any additional money to the United States without some form of collateral. So Richard Nixon started the environmental movement, with the EPA and its various programs such as "wilderness zones", Roadless areas", Heritage rivers", "Wetlands", all of which took vast areas of public lands and made them off limits to the American people who were technically the owners of those lands. But Nixon had little concern for the environment and the real purpose of this land grab under the guise of the environment was to pledge those pristine lands and their vast mineral resources as collateral on the national debt. The plethora of different programs was simply to conceal the true scale of how much American land was being pledged to foreign lenders as collateral on the government's debts; eventually almost 25% of the nation itself.

With open lands for collateral already in short supply, the US Government embarked on a new program to shore up sagging international demand for the dollar. The United States approached the world's oil producing nations, mostly in the Middle East, and offered them a deal. In exchange for only selling their oil for dollars, the United States would guarantee the military safety of those oil-rich nations. The oil rich nations would agree to spend and invest their US paper dollars inside the United States, in particular in US Treasury Bonds, redeemable through future generations of US taxpayers. The concept was labeled the "petrodollar". In effect, the US, no longer able to back the dollar with gold, was now backing it with oil. Other peoples' oil. And that necessity to keep control over those oil nations to prop up the dollar has shaped America's foreign policy in the region ever since.
But as America's manufacturing and agriculture has declined, the oil producing nations faced a dilemma. Those piles of US Federal Reserve notes were not able to purchase much from the United States because the United States had little (other than real estate) anyone wanted to buy. Europe's cars and aircraft were superior and less costly, while experiments with GMO food crops led to nations refusing to buy US food exports. Israel's constant belligerence against its neighbors caused them to wonder if the US could actually keep their end of the petrodollar arrangement. Oil producing nations started to talk of selling their oil for whatever currency the purchasers chose to use. Iraq, already hostile to the United States following Desert Storm, demanded the right to sell their oil for Euros in 2000 and in 2002, the United Nations agreed to allow it under the "Oil for food" program instituted following Desert Storm. One year later the United States re-invaded Iraq, lynched Saddam Hussein, and placed Iraq's oil back on the world market only for US dollars.
The clear US policy shift following 9-11, away from being an impartial broker of peace in the Mideast to one of unquestioned support for Israel's aggressions only further eroded confidence in the Petrodollar deal and even more oil producing nations started openly talking of oil trade for other global currencies.
Over in Libya, Muammar Gaddafi had instituted a state-owned central bank and a value based trade currency, the Gold Dinar. Gaddafi announced that Libya's oil was for sale, but only for the Gold Dinar. Other African nations, seeing the rise of the Gold Dinar and the Euro, even as the US dollar continued its inflation-driven decline, flocked to the new Libyan currency for trade. This move had the potential to seriously undermine the global hegemony of the dollar. French President Nicolas Sarkozy reportedly went so far as to call Libya a “threat” to the financial security of the world. So, the United States invaded Libya, brutally murdered Qaddafi ( the object lesson of Saddam's lynching not being enough of a message, apparently), imposed a private central bank, and returned Libya's oil output to dollars only. The gold that was to have been made into the Gold Dinars is, as of last report, unaccounted for.
According to General Wesley Clark, the master plan for the "dollarification" of the world's oil nations included seven targets, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran (Venezuela, which dared to sell their oil to China for the Yuan, is a late addition). What is notable about the original seven nations originally targeted by the US is that none of them are members of the Bank for International Settlements, the private central bankers private central bank, located in Switzerland. This meant that these nations were deciding for themselves how to run their nations' economies, rather than submit to the international private banks.
Now the bankers' gun sights are on Iran, which dares to have a government central bank and sell their oil for whatever currency they choose. The war agenda is, as always, to force Iran's oil to be sold only for dollars and to force them to accept a privately owned central bank. Malaysia, one of the new nations without a Rothschild central bank, is now being invaded by a force claimed to be "Al Qaeda", and with the death of President Hugo Chavez, plans to impose a US and banker friendly regime on Venezuela are clearly being implemented.
The German government recently asked for the return of some of their gold bullion from the Bank of France and the New York Federal Reserve. France has said it will take 5 years to return Germany's gold. The United States has said they will need 8 years to return Germany's gold. This suggests strongly that the Bank of France and the NY Federal Reserve have used the deposited gold for other purposes, most likely to cover gold futures contracts used to artificially suppress the price of gold to keep investors in the equities markets, and the Central Banks are scrambling to find new gold to cover the shortfall and prevent a gold run. So it is inevitable that suddenly France invades Mali, ostensibly to combat Al Qaeda, with the US joining in. Mali just happens to be one of the world's largest gold producers with gold accounting for 80% of Mali exports. War for the bankers does not get more obvious than that!
Mexico has demanded a physical audit of their gold bullion stored at the Bank of England, and along with Venezuela's vast oil reserves (larger than Saudi Arabia), Venezuela's gold mines are a prize lusted after by all the Central Banks that played fast and loose with other peoples' gold bullion. So we can expect regime change if not outright invasion soon.
You have been raised by a public school system and media that constantly assures you that the reasons for all these wars and assassinations are many and varied. The US claims to bring democracy to the conquered lands (they haven't; the usual result of a US overthrow is the imposition of a dictatorship, such as the 1953 CIA overthrow of Iran's democratically elected government of Mohammad Mosaddegh and the imposition of the Shah, or the 1973 CIA overthrow of Chile's democratically elected government of President Salvador Allende, and the imposition of Augusto Pinochet), or to save a people from a cruel oppressor, revenge for 9-11, or that tired worn-out catch all excuse for invasion, weapons of mass destruction. Assassinations are always passed off as "crazed lone nuts" to obscure the real agenda.
The real agenda is simple. It is enslavement of the people by creation of a false sense of obligation. That obligation is false because the Private Central Banking system, by design, always creates more debt than money with which to pay that debt. Private Central Banking is not science, it is a religion; a set of arbitrary rules created to benefit the priesthood, meaning the owners of the Private Central Bank. The fraud persists, with often lethal results, because the people are tricked into believing that this is the way life is suppoed to be and no alternative exists or should be dreamt of. The same was true of two earlier systems of enslavement, Rule by Divine Right and Slavery, both systems built to trick people into obedience, and both now recognized by modern civilizatyion as illegitimate. Now we are entering a time in human history where we will recognize that rule by debt, or rule by Private Central Bankers issuing the public currency as a loan at interest, is equally illegitimate. It only works as long as people allow themselves to believe that this is the way life is supposed to be.
But understand this above all; Private Central Banks do not exist to serve the people, the community, or the nation. Private Central Banks exist to serve their owners, to make them rich beyond the dreams of Midas and all for the cost of ink, paper, and the right bribe to the right official.
Behind all these wars, all these assassinations, the hundred million horrible deaths from all the wars lies a single policy of dictatorship. The private central bankers allow rulers to rule only on the condition that the people of a nation be enslaved to the private central banks. Failing that, said ruler will be killed, and their nation invaded by those other nations enslaved to private central banks.
The so-called "clash of civilizations" we read about on the corporate media is really a war between banking systems, with the private central bankers forcing themselves onto the rest of the world, no matter how many millions must die for it. Indeed the constant hatemongering against Muslims lies in a simple fact. Like the ancient Christians (prior to the Knights Templars private banking system) , Muslims forbid usury, or the lending of money at interest. And that is the reason our government and media insist they must be killed or converted. They refuse to submit to currencies issued at interest. They refuse to be debt slaves.
So off to war your children must go, to spill their blood for the money-junkies' gold. We barely survived the last two world wars. In the nuclear/bioweapon age, are the private central bankers willing to risk incinerating the whole planet just to feed their greed?
This brings us to the current situation in the Ukraine.
The European Union had been courting the government of the Ukraine to merge with the EU, and more to the point, entangle their economy with the private-owned European Central Bank. The government of the Ukraine was considering the move, but had made no commitments. Part of their concern lay with the conditions in other EU nations enslaved to the ECB, notably Cyprus, Greece, Spain, and Italy. So they were properly cautious. Then Russia stepped in with a better deal and the Ukraine, exercising the basic choice all consumers have to choose the best product at the best price, dropped the EU and announced they were going to go with Russia's offer. It was at that point that agents provocateurs flooded into the Ukraine, covertly funded by intelligence agency fronts like CANVAS and USAID, stirring up trouble, while the western media proclaimed this was a popular revolution. Snipers shot at people and this violence was blamed on then-President Yanukovich. However a leaked recording of a phone call between the EU's Catherine Ashton and Estonia's Foreign Minister Urmas Paet confirmed the snipers were working for the overthrow plotters, not the Ukrainian government. Urmas Paet has confirmed the authenticity of that phone call.
This is a classic pattern of covert overthrow we have seen many times before. Since the end of WW2, the US has covertly tried to overthrow the governments of 56 nations, succeeding 25 times. Examples include the 1953 overthrow of Iran's elected government of Mohammed Mossadegh and the imposition of the Shah, the 1973 overthrow of Chile's elected government of Salvador Allende and the imposition of the Pinochet dictatorship, and of course, the current overthrow of Ukraine's elected government of Yanukovich and the imposition of the current unelected government, which is already gutting the Ukraine's wealth to hand to the western bankers.
Flag waving and propaganda aside, all modern wars are wars by and for the private bankers, fought and bled for by third parties unaware of the true reason they are expected to gracefully be killed and croppled for. The process is quite simple. As soon as the Private Central Bank issues its currency as a loan at interest, the public is forced deeper and deeper into debt. When the people are reluctant to borrow any more, that is when the Keynesian economists demand the government borrow more to keep the pyramid scheme working. When both the people and government refuse to borrow any more, that is when wars are started, to plunge everyone even deeper into debt to pay for the war, then after the war to borrow more to rebuild. When the war is over, the people have about the same as they did before the war, except the graveyards are far larger and everyone is in debt to the private bankers for the next century. This is why Brown Brothers Harriman in New York was funding the rise of Adolf Hitler.
As long as Private Central Banks are allowed to exist, inevitably as the night follows day there will be poverty, hopelessness, and millions of deaths in endless World Wars, until the Earth itself is sacrificed in flames to Mammon.
The path to true peace on Earth lies in the abolishment of all private central banking everywhere, and a return to the state-issued value-based currencies that allow nations and people to become prosperous.

911 SPECIAL “ONCE UPON A TIME”
September 11, 2012 in Uncategorized Edit this entry
ONCE UPON A TIME…………
Once upon a time there were 19 bad men. Some were from Saudi Arabia, some were from the United Arab Emirates, one was from Egypt and one was from Lebanon. One day as they were wandering around Afghanistan, they went into a cave where the mean Osama was living. They all decided it would be fun if they would go to the U.S., learn how to fly Boeing 757′s, go to airports, get on 4 different planes, take them over and fly them into buildings, setting the buildings on fire, thus causing them to collapse. The wise and evil Osama agreed.
But there were problems. One said “how can we get into the U.S. since most of us are on terrorist watch lists”? The wise and evil Osama said, we will pray that Allah will cause those in charge in the U.S. to intervene and allow you into the U.S. Another said, “Since none of us know how to fly, how will we fly the 4, Boeing 757′s”? The wise and evil Osama said “you will go to the Pensacola Naval Air base and they will teach you how to fly a single engine plane”. “How will we take over the planes’? ” You will each carry a box cutter. Once you show the box cutter, then the several hundred passengers will cower in terror as you take over the planes”.
After they did as they were told and all of the pieces fell into place, they did, indeed take over 4, Boeing 757′s, only carrying box cutters. And after only becoming mildly proficient in flying small engine planes and not being able to perform any complex maneuvers, the pilots miraculously performed aerobatic maneuvers that not even the most experienced jet pilots are able to perform. After they had taken over these 4 planes, they were all allowed to fly these planes around Washington, D.C. and the entire east coast without any challenge from the U.S. military. The wise and evil Osama arranged for NORAD to run a drill at the exact same time, with the exact same scenario, calling for a complete stand down of the U.S. air defense.
Once they crashed their planes into buildings, more miracles happened. The jet fuel from 2 of the planes, normally burning at a maximum at 1800 degrees, magically heated up to almost 3000 degrees and melted not only the 47 steel columns in the core of the buildings, but all of the exterior steel as well. This was being done while people, braving the 3000 degree temperatures, still healthy and alive in the buildings, were begging for help at the blown out windows. Not even their clothes were burned. Then, as if by magic, first one, then the other skyscraper, fell down in 12 seconds.
Meanwhile, the wise and evil Osama had still more miracles planned. The third plane performed an impossible maneuver and crashed only a few feet above the ground into the Pentagon building. Even though the plane was 125 feet wide, it managed to slam into a wall of the building and leave only a 16 foot hole. Then the evil and wise Osama made that plane disappear without a trace of debris. He even managed to preserve a book and a wooden table without any burns right next to the exploding jet fuel. He then arranged for more than 40 cameras that recorded the crash to either malfunction or be taken by the authorities.
But the wise and evil Osama wasn’t through. The fourth plane was still flying around un opposed when brave passengers took over the plane. No, Osama didn’t explain why the brave passengers didn’t resist the evil man with the box cutter in the first place, but no matter. The wise and evil Osama then arranged for cell phone calls to be made from this jet liner flying at 500mph and cruising at 30,000 feet. This was indeed another miracle since this was never done before, nor since. Those brave passengers then decided not to try to fly the plane, they decided to crash it into a field. But the wise and evil Osama performed still another miracle. Even though the 4th plane crashed into a field, the plane’s debris was spread over 5 miles — almost as if the debris came from the sky above and not the ground below.
Oh, but the wise and evil Osama had one more trick up his sleeve. Back in the city, where 2 steel skyscrapers had collapsed in their own footprint due to fire, a third skyscraper in the area also had a moderate fire going in a couple of its’ floors. This time the evil and wise Osama would announce his next evil miracle. He caused both the BBC and CNN to announced that this 3rd building had collapsed due to fire, even though it would not collapse for another 23 minutes. Then it did collapse, but to show the evil Osama was not totally evil, he arranged for this building with fires almost totally out, to collapse in its’ own footprint, so not to damage the surrounding area.
There is a happy ending. All of the King’s soldiers and all of the King’s police and all of the King’s airport security officers and all of the King’s swat teams and all of the King’s stooges and all of the King’s dupes, lived happily ever after.
