The Tea Party And America’s Return To The “Good Ole Days”

*  “Outlaw Governors” Take On America
*  “The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.”
— Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

In Wisconsin, State Police cars are searching for missing legislators. The fist pounding on the door in the middle of the night, reminders of Germany, 1936.

A state governor is tape recorded taking orders from an Israeli billionaire. Children in state after state are being packed like cordwood into crowded classrooms as schools close. Not just teachers but police and firemen also, await pay cuts, elimination of health insurance and even firing as state governments seem to be declaring war on their own people.

Government services across the Midwest are slated to virtually disappear. Government protections, fire, safety, air, water, workplace and protection from frauds and financial abuses are on the chopping block. The very roots of civilization, even law and order are being sabotaged.

A region the size of France and Germany faces a bizarre hybridization, half fascism, half feudalism, open warfare, rich against poor, powerful preying on the weak.

Is there more to the political battle in the Midwest than just workers’ rights and closing schools and rationing health care? Have the new “extremist” state governors, Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan and Indiana, gone too far, combining huge tax breaks to their friends while closing schools, firing teachers and gutting public services? What if the inflammatory measures taken by “reformist” Tea Party governors are, as many now believe, evidence that those who promised to “fix the system” are really tasked with a broader and more destructive agenda, that of bringing America to its knees?

Who would want America’s government weak and compliant, divided, perhaps even under foreign domination yet with her military intact, ready to lash out in response to phony intelligence, imaginary threats or a new 9/11 style false flag attack, one we hear predictions of daily?

Is there evidence that the Tea Party “reformers” are, as is so often the case nowadays, a solution “chosen to fail?”<br/

The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.”
— Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

Are those who gravitate toward cynicism and conspiracy simply “situationally aware” and no longer a paranoid fringe? Have things in Washington deteriorated so far that only a handful of elected officials aren’t being bribed, blackmailed or both? Are there that many?

The media has rushed to defend the Koch Brothers, tied to the Israeli lobby AIPAC with its spy scandals and heavy handed agenda of pushing for war on Iran, bagmen and conduits for the Zionist move against the Obama administration, now believed by Israel to be an unenthusiastic “partner.”

Obama may “veto” on demand to save Israel from U.N. sanctions for human rights violations but has not met expectations on Iran. It will take a shipload of cluster bombs to do that, perhaps a bit more.

The “Koch boys” are tasked with closing that deal. America will be broken, this is what is believed. Thousands of Americans in the streets are saying a resounding “NO!”

As juicy a target as Iran may be, isolated, no air force, oil and gas wealth beyond imagination, America may well be easier to take down.

Defending the “Federal reserve franchise,” the gaggle of banks, many Rothschild controlled, that have repeatedly crushed America’s economy since 1913, the illegal and unconstitutional monstrosity that bleeds America dry, that is another task for Israel’s Tea Party commandos.

Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan were never the real target of AIPAC with its media arms, the Murdoch/Fox empire and Wikileaks. Drowning America in debt and war is, while Israel drowns in another way, in American cash and defense contracts.

Wikileaks is a sinister part of that empire too. Wikileaks is regrouping, hoping the public will quickly forget their alliances with the media giants and their special “sensitivity” to the needs and desires of Israel’s covert intelligence organization, the Mossad. Julian Assange says “sensitivity.” We say “alliance.”

In today’s world of game theory warfare, where “psy-ops” are “politics as usual,” an American political scene that is increasingly global and increasingly brutal. The “spin doctors” of the 80’s and 90’s have given way to “covert operatives” and “disinformation specialists,” products of the “War on Terror” years who are as quick with a gun or bomb as their predecessors were with briefcases filled with cash.

For years, Americans had been distracted by “boogeyman” terror scares, now appearing more than a bit overly “coincidental.”

Giving The Fox The Henhouse Keys

America is broke, most people know that but don’t understand what it means. One day Americans will wake up and money will be worthless. When this happens — and it is “when” and not “if” — a nuclear apocalypse would be an afterthought.

This will be the morning you wake up and find why the Department of Homeland Security was created.

What most Americans also know is that America is broke because of bank fraud, interest payments on debt caused by huge deficits run up under the Bush administration and the bloated military budget. The two wars, that are still going on and on, paying for them and the interest on 15 trillion dollars in national debt accounts for 99% of the waste.

America didn’t get this far gone by accident. The greatest minds money could buy, insidious, evil, twisted, planned this every step of the way starting with Reagan’s “trickle down” economics.

Without a middle class and a viable industrial economy, America simply doesn’t exist. America is now a nation of extremes, the very rich and the “less than poor,” a former middle class buried in debt and a working class with no jobs, a nation heading for disintegration, a nation posed for even more tyranny, more control and less and less freedom.

Feudalism:  Thank The Supreme Court

The last insult, defiling the corpse of America, the Supreme Court granted international corporations (with a U.S. registered agent) unlimited access to buy and sell elected officials. Drug money from Mexico and Afghanistan, profits from defective vaccines, price fixed oil, “bail out” money, has flooded into the political system of America ending the last hope for freedom and progress, over $200 million during the last midterm election alone, enough to swing 100 key races.

It is guaranteed, it is truly written, life in America will all be down hill from now on, phony terror attacks, endless wars, new laws, restrictions, new humiliations. Expect the ultimate tax, runaway prices for everything, food, gas, utilities, tuition, more to pay with money now totally impossible for the average American to get.

Today we are drowning in money. That will end. Ask anyone who lived during the “great depression.” Movies cost 5 cents.

Nobody had 5 cents.

The new ploy has a first step, divide and conquer. The tool used, the Tea Party governors, now proven to be employees of the Israeli-American Koch brothers, tasked with orchestrating “the crash.”

“First we break the unions…”

Twisted Patriotism

When America’s patriotic resistance, those wanting a new 9/11 investigation and an end to illegal wars, massive debt and draconian rule at home formed the Tea Party, they created the means of their own destruction. As soon as the network publicity machines, starting with Fox, went into gear and the money began to flow, It was all over.

Real funding was not small donations from “grass roots” believers but “Israeli firster” bucks, the billionaire Koch brothers tied to Israeli ultra-nationalist Likudists picking up the bill.

“Them who pays, names the tune to be danced to.”

The Tea Party agenda went from ending constitutional abuses of the Patriot Acts, investigating the 9/11 cover-up and ending massive federal deficits to “samo-samo” Neocon drivel, but with a twist.

Despite the Neocon appearance to the Tea Party, it is something entirely different. There is nothing remotely conservative about feudalism.

Remember, there can be no feudalism without serfs. Being a serf “sucks”… wait and see.

America, at her weakest since the “great depression” has been singled out for destruction, destabilization, “balkanization” and class warfare. America’s Midwest is the target zone, rolling back the clock in state after state, plunging what had been America’s industrial heartland into generations of poverty and decline. We have seen the bank failures. Will breadlines be next?

Are breadlines “socialism?”

No business will stay in, no business will move to a region with closed schools, no reliable police and fire departments, crumbling highways, a region pre-staged for social unrest, outbreaks of crime, a region pre-staged for class warfare. This is no accident, not hardly. Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin are only a beginning.

Wisconsin, from the folks who brought us Gaza…

Who could hate America this much? Who profits from debt, from social unrest, from war, who makes money when Americans are sick, hungry, afraid and oppressed?

Our “Bestest Friend” In The Whole World

Has anyone noticed that the Tea Party didn’t just forget about its beginnings as a 9/11 Truth movement? Did anyone notice that the Tea Party, not the minor “Ron Paul wing” but the “Koch Brothers’ Tea Party,” the real “Tea Party” is totally silent on the following issues:

· The wars can go on forever despite the fact they are bleeding America dry and are morally despicable

· Wiretapping, torture, airport groping, secret prisons, suspended habeas corpus, those “constitution” issues talked about so much, seem to have been forgotten

· The biggest financial ripoffs, oil and pharmaceutical price fixing, military-industrial racketeering, Wall Street… not a word

· If trillions were stolen, yes trillions, not billions, why isn’t anyone talking about arrests? Isn’t stealing illegal anymore?

The number one issue is Obamacare? Say what????

The Case:  Divide And Destroy

Their theory is that of the spiral, entropy, debt, depression and discord. Decades of “dumbing down,” inferior schools, degenerate pop culture, propaganda and fear mongering are the tools.

The prize?

A population that hates, itself, each other, believes in nothing, trusts no one, fears everything, every group ready to enslave the other.

Orwellian.

Destroy public education and America is permanently derailed, relegated to third world status, a “Soviet Union” for the 21st century, dumb as hell and armed to the teeth.

The political answer being sold to Americans is one most are very familiar with. The “hate” list is getting out of hand. Topping the list is the old standby, African Americans, the underpinnings of American politics for 150 years. Every discussion of government spending, not counting the 80% stolen by banksters and the military industrial complex, is a “nod and wink” about “them.”

The race hatred from America’s shameful era of slavery is alive and well. The unbridled hatred spewed at President Obama originates from geography every American knows very well. “Red States” are where they hate “black people.” (and Jews)

Sadder still, the greatest social advancement “some” people of color have achieved in recent decades has been brought about by the refocused hated since 9/11, “Islamophobia.” It is though America, as a nation, existed as a macrocosm of an elementary school playground.

Should African Americans feel relief because the media is now relentlessly focused on bashing Muslims, gays and Hispanics?

Now we have added trade unions to the list, another danger to public order, or so we are told by those who want to return to the past:

·  Millions of laborers in America lived in actual slavery. Coal miners made $5 a week, lived in hovels rented from mine owners, shopped at the “company store.”

·  Milk in the United States was made with chalk. Crackers used axle grease for shortening. Bread was made from sawdust.

We forget how fragile our nation is. Americans live as though things were always as they are. But then, how are they? Between 20 and 30 million homes are vacant, each housed an American family, over 80 million Americans cast adrift.

Where are they now?

Between 2 and 3 million Americans are in prison with another 7 million on parole or probation.

The Soviet gulags were never so full.

No one is asking why.

Over a million Americans serve in the armed forces, some with more deployed time than any military force in our history. Most would leave the service if they didn’t face starvation.

Veterans from Vietnam, Gulf War I (Operation Desert Storm) and Gulf War II share the endless wait for veterans disability processing, some for illnesses and injuries over 40 years old. 3 generations wait, poisoned, vaccinated and irradiated to death.

They were last month’s target, before the move against the trade unions.

They will be targeted again. They are weak, they are vulnerable. They are expendable.

Will the children be next? Of course they will.

GORDON DUFF: Mysterious Death Of American Ally, Reagan Friend, In Pakistan

January 24, 2011 Comments off

[Blogmaster note:  I posted the news of Col. Imam’s death in my Newsmarks column — and sent it out via RSS almost as fast as it hit the Pakistan newswire. Not too many folks clicked on the link, which attests that Col. Imam was largely an unknown figure among my readers. Gordon Duff offers a fitting tribute.]

*  “Colonel Imam” Kidnapped By Taliban Group Believed “Mossad” Backed

Colonel Imam (Photo: G. Duff) may have been the single driving force that pushed Russia out of Afghanistan. A modern day “Lawrence of Arabia,” Imam or Sultan Amir Tarar, a Pakistani Brigadier General, trained with American Rangers and Special Forces at Ft. Bragg, was as instrumental as Lech Walesa in bringing down the Soviet Union.

The group that kidnapped Imam 10 months ago along with Khalid Khawaja, who was murdered and a British journalist, has been misrepresented as former Pakistani intelligence who have joined a rebel Taliban faction from Punjab. This is disinformation. The group, the “Asian Tigers” is a terrorist group funded and organized by the substantial Israeli/Indian operational forces in Afghanistan, the Mossad/RAW. These groups organize terrorism inside Pakistan, working to destabilize that nation, support the heroin trade in Afghanistan and simulate “Al Qaeda” terrorists when needed.

They are an international terrorist organization, one proven to exist, one proven tied to Israel, one responsible for the killing of, not only Pakistani citizens by the hundred but American and NATO military and U.N. aid workers as well.

Without this organization, the “Asian Tigers” and similar groups, casualties in the Af/Pak theatre would diminish significantly.

However, no reports of this ever reach the western media, this information, intelligence contained in reports withheld by Wikileaks, censored, not only by Julian Assange and the New York Times but the CIA as well. These groups, though they attack Americans also, are protected just as the opium crops are, at the direction of the highest authorities in the American command.

It isn’t just Julian Assange and his New York Times partners that get their directions from Tel Aviv.

In briefings I received in Pakistan and Washington, estimates of these forces and their activities varied but one thing was for certain, they exist, they are a threat and they are being lied about. Whether India or Israel or both, Americans are dying at the hands of friends profiting from war, drugs and corruption in, not only American politics but the Pentagon establishment as well.

Colonel Imam, an American hero without equal, died at the hands of such an organization.

Col. Imam

I met the Colonel at the home of General Mirsa Aslam Beg, former Chief of Staff of Pakistan’s Army. With me were, among others, author Jeff Gates and VT [Veterans Today] editor, Raja Mujtaba. The Colonel was attired in a white turban and military field jacket. The patches, U.S. Ranger and Special Forces. The surprising part, his accent. It was, not only American but clear “old South.” This was a Georgia boy!

Despite the accusations thrown at the Colonel and General Beg, accusations also thrown at VT editor Lt. General Hamid Gul and others, of working with terrorists or supplying the Taliban, there was always one thing in common, the quest for peace and stability in the region. Where others are called “war criminals” by those profiting from continual conflict, the attacks against Colonel Imam always fell on deaf ears.

Few non-Americans have ever had the respect and friendship he enjoyed, not only in Congress, but among the special operations community who knew him to be fearless and loyal. I saw that immediately.

Colonel Imam was a gentle and honorable person, decent and kind. He died in captivity, said from “cardiac” problems. He died at the hands of terrorists, real enemies of the United States, real enemies of the people of Pakistan, real enemies of the people of Afghanistan, real enemies of all humanity.

He will be missed.

[End.]

GORDON DUFF: Rogue America, The Quiet Mutiny

Rogue America, The Quiet Mutiny

*  How Privatization, Religion And Constitutional Abuses Have Created A ‘Shadow’ State

A little over 2 weeks ago, John Wheeler III, former Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force, a man whose Washington resume put him in contact with presidents, was found in the back of a garbage truck. Two weeks later, there is no police investigation, no cause of death, no questions from the press, just silence, deafening silence.

Nothing is said of Wheeler’s career, a high profile Vietnam veteran, a man much admired, even loved. Work, bio-chem warfare, nuclear programs, now totally blacked out. All that remains is a moment or two of video, very inexplicable, Wheeler, the consummate disciplined professional drifting in what seems to be an LSD induced haze. There, the curtain was drawn, the door was closed, no further cover story, no prepared lie, the “imagineers” responsible for such things caught off balance, this time at least.

John Wheeler was clearly, “The Man Who Knew Too Much.”

Wheeler was also a “contractor,” part of the army of private citizens that now control everything that the Department of Homeland Security does not. We call this “privatization.”

Privatization And Accountability

“Privatization,” another word for “parallelization” put control of most defense and intelligence functions into the hands of unaccountable “no-bid” private contractors, invariably politically partisan and many uniquely willing to engage in criminality on a level heretofore unimagined.

What the marriage between a private sector, tasked with the most sensitive functions of national security, those requiring the most oversight, those subject to the most hideous abuses and an administration no longer clearly in control of the reins of government, have done to the world is a disaster, unique even by 20th century standards.

The largest military power in the history of man would become a defacto mercenary force, virtually seizing Central Asia, pre-staging it for systematic enslavement, for stripping it of resources. The economic model is amazing in scope. $300 billion a year are spent in Afghanistan. $200 billion of that is stolen. The only result of America’s military action? Destruction of the region, impoverishment of America and $65 billion in heroin production.

Wheeler’s death leads us down several avenues. They twist, they turn, they interweave, but they all end up one place, one inexorable place, another factoid making up the mosaic, the pattern revealing the fact, now unavoidable to so many, that a secret government exists. Government may be the wrong word, as “chaos” is hardly “government” and chaos is where that mosaic is taking us. A senseless and almost childish alternative reality has been created by the press and pop culture, groups that Helen Thomas would tell us are one in the same.

Hiding behind a veil of secrecy, protected by Kafkaesque bureaucracies, one upon another, shielded by a total breakdown of societal responsibility, each sector, be it public education, finance, news and media, government and defense, each more complicit than the last, an overwhelming hunger for truth and a feeling of solidity, of “believability” has driven millions to follow conspiracy as the new religion.

Even that, itself, is now managed, Wikileaks and its “press partnerships,” the alternative media drowned in a cacophony of rubbish, co-opted, infiltrated, influenced and bought.

1963 Thru Reagan

Since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963, there have been continual whispers about a “shadow government” running the United States. This cabal is said to have taken America into Vietnam, its most disastrous war and planned, with Israel, the “false flag” USS Liberty attack in 1967 to push America into invading the Middle East.

The first undeniable public signs of a “shadow government” came to light under Reagan with Iran Contra, when a White House based group, selling arms to our enemies, running drugs on a massive scale, was discovered. Dozens of top officials were tried, convicted, some convictions were overturned on manufactured technicalities, others, including a Secretary of Defense, received presidential pardons. The claim was “fighting communism in Central America.” The truth, the communists left power after losing free elections, ones the communists, themselves held, while our “patriots,” the secret government, filled our cities with crack cocaine by the ton, lined their own pockets and built an organization that would later be used to rig elections and derail America’s freedoms.

Coup By Lewinski

Normally, the ‘shadow government’ is never spoken of. We saw the hand of a shadow government when, then “first lady” Hillary Clinton talked about a “vast right wing conspiracy.” She was immediately crushed by the press for this and her attempt to break the stranglehold the pharmaceutical industry has on congress, one recently re-instituted with vigor. It was the shadow government that unleashed Monica Lewinsky and later used private financing to impeach President Clinton.

Hillary, in an act of incredible bravery, had stepped on the real “third rail” of American power. No, it isn’t the typical sacred cow, Israel. Today we say that Carter was “anti-Israel” but it was Reagan that had the character to stand up to them, a power long disappeared from American politics.

Hillary threatened the pharmaceutical industry, then at the height of its influence. Today, with up to 40% of America’s military forces on anti-psychotic medications, the dream of mind control and “MK Ultra” has been exceeded beyond any but the wildest imagination. With typical “side effects” being suicidal ideation, chemical castration, tremors, delusion, loss of will, loss of judgement, loss of employability, generations of “zombies” walk, drive, stumble, many in a semi-dreamlike state, through America’s 21st century landscape.

Censorship and secrecy are needed less and less as pharmacology and “dumbed down” public education takes its inevitable toll.

Overthrow

The “shadow government” gained form in 2000. The Republican nomination was rigged, John McCain was crushed by manufactured scandals, all with one purpose, to put the team of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, cohorts since the Nixon years, into power. The vehicle was the hapless dupe, George “W” Bush.

The 2000 election, rigged voting machines, a “strict construction” Supreme Court picking a president based on a “wildly liberal” interpretation of the Constitution’s “equal protection” theory, was the opening salvo in a war, the “globalists” against humanity. Implementation of the agenda began with 9/11 and the phony terror wars.

The mechanism of entropy, corruption, economic collapse and the drug empire in Afghanistan, there is little doubt anymore. Forces well outside any political system envisioned by the Founding Fathers control America, forces capable of side-stepping or overruling any elected official or any law, up to and including, even especially, the Constitution of the United States of America.

Normally, the “shadow government” covers its tracks well, as members of the 9/11 Commission have been shouting from the rooftops for years. Even when it doesn’t, secrecy and censorship step in, always “protecting” the public from the problems created by, well, created by censorship and secrecy.

Minot-Barksdale, The Forgotten Mutiny

In August 2007, at least 6 nuclear warheads were stolen from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota. The moment they were loaded, they disappeared from America’s nuclear inventory, “location unknown,” something that is not supposed to happen. There is no possible “misinterpretation” of orders, no mistake, no “wrong label” issue. These weapons were stolen, pure and simple. Discussions of individual commanders having authority to deploy weapons, stories of accidents, confusion or political alignments within the Air Force are “red herrings.”

Nothing is more controlled, more secure, more restricted, more classified, more protected than the nuclear arsenal of the United States. However, on that fateful day in 2007, a half dozen or more, hydrogen bombs, were plucked out of a secure bunker with no paperwork, no orders, nothing.

This is the military. People are jailed for losing flashlight batteries.

They were loaded into the weapons bay of a B-52 long range bomber for transport to places unknown, for purposes unknown. The plane had no orders, was part of no mission, operated under no legal command structure, in fact, the moment the weapons were loaded, was no longer an American plane at all. A mission, even under the most innocent possible circumstances, that would have required the knowledge of the President and his staff, certainly the Joint Chiefs of Staff and likely the National Security Council as well, seems to have authorized itself, out of “thin air.”

Though the plane later landed at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana, there is no evidence supporting this as the intended destination, far from it.

The theft, hijacking, you pick the term, these are the best two so far, happened outside the command authority of the United States government, contravening all protocols for the storage, handling and deployment of nuclear weapons. The incident was also a violation of treaties requiring America to safeguard her stockpile of nuclear weapons, not just from environmental disasters but, as with this incident, from a mutiny by members of the military and civilian branches of our government, acting outside authority, acting as civilians, an act of piracy, mutiny, an act of insurrection.

All the things Israel warns America about every day, radical groups in Iran and Pakistan getting control of nukes really happened, but not with Muslim radicals and not in the Middle East, it happened here at home. The radicals were Christians, of a sort at least, possibly intent on Armageddon, maybe planning to sell the weapons to Iran or North Korea or, more likely, tucking them away for “a rainy day.”

The Minot-Barksdale “incident” demonstrated, not only that a secret government exists but it is capable of waging, not only foreign policy but of mounting a credible thermonuclear threat to the world.

A “Not So Coincidental” Coincidence

When a planeload of nuclear weapons is hijacked by an extremist organization tied to the highest levels of power in America, we might ask, why then? What was going on in America in August 2007? Did something happen then? Why were 6 nuclear weapons stolen at the exact same time America suffered the largest financial collapse, became the victim of the largest financial crime in world history? Is this a coincidence?

We know these things for sure:

·  This was the 11th hour, the last minutes of the 11th hour, the last chance to begin a war with Iran. Iraq had been temporarily “stabilized” by massive bribes paid out under General Petraeus’ “Sunni Awakening” program, a ‘band-aid’ fix that would soon come apart, Afghanistan had become a hopeless quagmire and the public had turned on President Bush, giving him the lowest approval ratings of all time, leaving his presidency failed and discredited.

·  What had begun as a minor mortgage crisis had revealed a deeper disease, the “toxic derivitives” schemes that would collapse America’s entire financial system. Only 5% of the mismanaged funds were mortgage related, 95% was a massive Ponzi scheme by “banks” that had taken to creating wealth out of thin air, underwriting the entire American economy, bond and stock markets, corporate earnings, pension plans, all backed by nothing at all. The money most American’s thought they had wasn’t even the “counterfeit” trash spewed by the Federal Reserve. It was, in fact, imaginary, soon to be gone, “poof!”

How could 6 nuclear weapons, providing this was the only theft, something we may never learn, be used to cover the crimes of America’s entire financial community? What use of weapons of mass destruction would have changed the public’s perception, a public increasingly suspicious of the other great coincidence of all time, 9/11?

Were weapons to be taken outside the country to attack others or to be brought back, a container in a seaport, a vending machine in a stadium, atop a missile, brought home? For years, the front men for the secret government, the ones easily recognized, had done little but prepare America for such an eventuality. With $12 trillion dollars “missing,” would the incineration of an American city be enough?

Means, Motive And Opportunity

Professional law enforcement personnel, where such things still exist, look at any criminal act in three stages, Means, Motive and Opportunity. Means and motive are not obvious at all, not unless one is willing to accept that top commanders of the United States Air Force are traitors.

Let’s take a second to examine a frightening trend that may have led to this seeming vulnerability. How could the United States Air Force have been infiltrated with commanders loyal to a power structure outside any accepted norm? What kind of values would make this possible? To understand the breakdown in command in the Air Force, we must look at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.

The “Talibanization” Of The Air Force

Several months ago, Veterans Today was contacted by a delegation of officers candidates attending the Academy. They told us that the Academy was run by a religious cult, known as Dominionists. This group, this cult, violent, predatory, accused of “brain washing” recruits, tormenting, intimidating, is rapidly gaining total control of the officers corps of the United States Air Force. Their agenda is a strange version of Evangelical Zionism, subservience of women, bizarre beliefs in nuclear apocalypse and, worst of all, a total disregard for Constitutional authority and legal command structure.

Is this group capable of stealing nuclear weapons which might be used against the United States? The only answer is a resounding “Yes!”

Can the beliefs of a bizarre religious cult constitute motive for nuclear theft? Does this cult have enough “means” and “opportunity” to attempt this kind of operation, one possibly meant to bring about a nuclear apocalypse and trigger the ‘end times’ as required by their beliefs?

What America has proven to the world, at least those nations with a free press and a people still capable of critical thinking is that, not only is the nuclear arsenal of the United States the most vulnerable, those guarding it are the most radicalized and the most prone toward acts of terrorism.

America’s nuclear arsenal has been guarded by a Taliban for decades. What could the motive for this be?

The Taiwan Question And More

An American B-52 was forced to land and hand over its cargo of nuclear weapons at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana and 80 Air Force personnel were forced to resign. Problems with “discipline” were listed as the reason. The Air Force calls the incident a “bent spear,” a simple violation of procedure.

Despite the public whitewash, the “bent spear” was clearly, not only a “broken arrow” but as Senator Levin indicated, “no breach of nuclear procedures of this magnitude has ever occurred.” Senator Bill Nelson called it “sloppy.” What it wasn’t was the first time such a thing has happened.

In 2006, what we are told were “nuclear fuses” for the Minuteman III missile were sent to Taiwan, packaged as “helicopter batteries.”

At that time, the Minuteman was undergoing major upgrades, not only in safety mechanisms but in targeting capability also. The “fusing” units that were available for shipment weren’t simply fuses, they were designed to upgrade our aging fleet of Minuteman missiles, America’s state of the art targeting technology for our most important deterrent system.

What really happened? Certainly not what we were told. Does Taiwan have the technology, having adapted it to systems they have purchased elsewhere, nuclear triggers, perhaps they have one or more of the nuclear weapons believed to be missing from the Israeli-South African arsenal? Did they keep the technology or sell it to China or India? Was this another accident?

In October, 2010, 50 Minuteman III missiles, 1/9th of those in America’s arsenal, went “walkabout” for 45 minutes, under the control of, well, we don’t really know. We only know that the official government of the United States didn’t have them, enough megatonage to turn Europe into a cinder.

A month later, an ICBM was launched from a submarine 35 miles off Los Angeles. The U.S. claimed it was an airplane, a weather balloon but missile technicians identified it as a large ICBM, unknown origin, unauthorized and, as with the murder of John Wheeler III, something Americans are asked to overlook, forget, pretend never happened.

The Shadow “In Plain Sight”

Normally, hubris, the ego that makes criminal sociopaths want their work appreciated, whether it is looting banks or raping and murdering busloads of small children, has negative consequences. When Vice President Cheney established a special operations command inside his own office, one that directed military and intelligence operations without budget approval or legal oversight of any kind, he was demonstrating the hubris of a criminal psychopath.

Look at the legality, even by Alberto Gonzales’ standards.

It is one thing for a nation state to resort to torture, kidnapping or even acts of military aggression, backed by attempts at justification such as those seen in 2003 by Colin Powell at the United Nations. Powell lost his career, the respect of the world and America was branded a rogue nation and aggressor.

When an elected official, such as the Vice President, an office tasked with attending funerals and, in actuality, nothing else, begins, not only formulating policy outside the office of the presidency but conducting military operations on its own authority, an authority that does not exist, no law, certainly not the Constitution, then the individual holding that office is in insurrection against the government of the United States.

The vice president can’t order kidnappings, killings by the dozen, maybe hundreds or more, can’t command troops in the field, the vice president is the Commander in Chief of nothing whatsoever. There is no command authority of any kind, real or implied, in that office nor can any be assigned or transferred there unless the President of the United States is incapacitated.

The 25th Amendment to the Constitution, ratified in 1967, contains the following language:

Section 3.  Whenever the President transmits to the President pro-tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President.

Section 4.  Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

Outside of these specific circumstances, the Vice President acts in an advisory capacity only with no authority other than that outlined in the Constitution, which specifies that the Vice President presides over the Senate and may cast tie-breaking votes if and when circumstances dictate.

The issue of Vice President Cheney is only germane based on his public assumption of clear presidential and super-presidential authority, extra-constitutional authority, during the administration of George W. Bush. The actions involved, aggressive war, operation of secret prisons, assassinations and more are capital crimes as outlined during the Nuremberg War Tribunals and subject to international jurisdiction.

Do these acts, the ones Cheney (and Rumsfeld) publicly acknowledge, the ones we can prove, combined with coincidences, so many of those, give adequate reason for us to assume a conspiracy, a secret globalist cabal, is acting in place of the intended government of the United States? Has the brush of history, itself, left little room for assumptions otherwise?

Murder In Arizona – Moral Flexibility And Relativism

*  Please, No More “Lone Gunmen”

Tucson, gunfire in the streets, a member of congress set for public execution, the proverbial bullet to the back of the head. Victim two, for good measure, a federal judge, his life threatened hundreds of times, dead. The collateral damage, regular people, let’s be honest, “little people” no consequence to the press, nothing special, simple “window dressing.”

What is the story here? Politics gone bad, gun nuts or another of the seemingly endless string of “Manchurian Candidates,” another “three name killer” to add to the string of equally artificial “just add water” terrorists.

Imagine what our government has in store for us now. A press story about printer cartridges, later proven false, turned air travel into a nightmare of radiation and sexual groping. My gut feeling tells me that there wouldn’t have been a shooting at all unless there was a draconian New World Order scam in the offing. Give it a week or two, let’s see how good a guesser I am.

Gun Crazy Or Special Operations “Street Theatre”

Lone gunman, misfit, or someone selected for “mind control” as his videos allude to, picked out while undergoing testing during his unsuccessful attempts to join the military? Does anyone doubt that the shadow government started “red tagging” fruitcakes like him long ago, hundreds ready to be thawed out for just such an occasion? How many have we seen so far? You don’t think Timothy McVeigh really blew up the Federal Building in Oklahoma City, do you?

The press, now 80% supposedly “independent” and “alternative” will have a field day with this one. The “alternative media” largely funded and controlled by moneyed political groups is tasked with “roadblocking” any serious investigative journalism. They will be blaming “liberals” and “socialists.”

Some of it hit immediately, before the blood on the parking lot was congealed. Yesterday’s media spin focused on Antisemitism. If you didn’t see it, those of us in the press did. Our email was filled with news stories and press releases. This is where “moral relativism” comes in. Give me a moment with this.

“Moral Relativism” And Political Expedience

We all agree, Gabrielle Gifford is an “innocent,” a decent woman, progressive and caring. When faced with political defeat, Gifford, a “pro-choice” liberal with strong credentials for taking the honorable side on issues, “found” a Jewish relative and “converted” to Judaism. Finding a Jewish relative and “unfinding” Christ is a form of “moral relativism.” Anyone who doesn’t see that the link between genealogy and revelation is purely financial is lucky to have lived long enough to read these words.

A number of things can drive one when faced with a moral decision, one that defines character. “Relativism” is when you make a decision for “the greater good,” a decision which with many is little more than rationalization. Sometimes it isn’t, thus, when Jesus talks about those without sin casting the first stone, he is defining “relativism.” (Matt: 7:1 “Judge not, lest Ye be judged…”)

In the process, however, Gifford had to also, not only “unfind” Christ. She also had to find herself ready to answer the phone and do what she was told when the call came in and it comes in, over and over. It isn’t all “goodness and light,” sending unlimited money to Israel or weapons, depleted uranium and white phosphorous to be used on Gaza. It also involves keeping silent when asked. Let’s take a look at how well “moral relativism” worked in making 9/11 possible.

Relativism and flexibility is how people the Nazi’s put into concentration camps can now, 65 years later, be running one ten times the size of anything Hitler imagined. Gifford is “right with that” and has stated it repeatedly. Won’t she be surprised if she learns she may not have been the victim of a “random act of violence.” Did we have a “little Mumbai” in Arizona?

9/11 And “Moral Relativism”

If you only recently learned about 9/11, Jesse Ventura proving the Pentagon was blown up by a missile or Judge Napolitano proving our government knew “9/11” was coming years in advance, that those sworn to protect us on 9/11 “stuck it to us,” you must have been under a rock for awhile. The word is out, the government did 9/11, Bush, Cheney, Israel and a cast of others, sociopaths, fanatics, “relativists” showing us their moral flexibility.

“It may cost the lives of a few million people and collapse the world economy but, in the end, I am going to get that second vacation home I dreamed of.” (definition of Moral Relativism)

The real “9/11″… there were no hijackers or phone calls, no passengers storming the cockpit, no throats cut with box cutters. It was all made up.

No, Barb Olsen never made the famous cell phone calls to her husband. No, there were no “seat back phones” on the plane, the call never happened, all proven years ago to be, well, part of a systematic cover-up of the conspiracy 9/11 is. This is where Jesse Ventura got it right, Barb Olsen, right wing pundit and wife of the lawyer who put Bush into office, making 9/11 possible, Barb Olson’s death on 9/11 will be what blows 9/11 wide open.

The irony may well be that Barb Olsen herself will be there to see it.

The real story could have been simple. Mossad teams were in New York. One was captured filming the attack, arrested by NYPD because they were stupid enough to be dancing in the streets celebrating the murder of 3,000 Americans. In Israel they are considered national heroes. If you get the chance while visiting, ask why. Make sure you have no weapons, no sharp objects nearby.

Have you ever wondered what Israel was going to do with videos of 9/11? Wait a minute, aren’t the companies that always find those terror videos online Israeli? Is this irony or, perhaps, something a bit more sinister?

Were we going to see these videos just like the ones where Americans are killed by snipers or people get their heads cut off. Connect these dots and see where they take you.

Go back, in your mind, to September 11, 2001.

With one of the terrorist squads responsible for 9/11 in custody, the FBI went on an immediate nationwide manhunt for more, not Arabs, but Israelis. Remember hearing about FBI agents trying to catch a plane before it left the country?

America was locked down, “tight as a tick,” all air traffic grounded, all borders closed, checkpoints set up everywhere, the most massive police operation in world history. Every American was watching, hunting, fearful and suspicious.

Why would a plane have to fly to Israel, under the personal orders of the President of the United States? Was the FBI on the trail of another of the teams? I think we all know who was on the plane.These were the terrorists, those responsible for the operation. It was either get them to Israel or throw them down a well.

We now know the planning was done in the Pentagon and White House. For 9 years it has been pieced together. If Jesse and Geraldo, all unchallenged and unrefuted, continue to be ignored by authorities, it will be more than “moral relativism.”

Ask the dead from 9/11 or the families of the thousands of American soldiers dead, the 400,000 wounded and disabled and the 2.4 million Muslims and Christians killed in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Who can deny the use of the word “holocaust”? Conspiracy, mass murder, millions dead, gangsters, extremist freaks, ask anyone, ask Julian Assange. This is the America he revels in exposing, America, the “fall guy” for Israel.

When Moral Relativism Bites Back

If the “lone gunman” or the “box cutter” hijackers were always who we were told they are, there would be no question of “moral relativism.” In a world where an imaginary hijacker can murder 3,000 people or buildings cynically demolished on hundreds of “first responders” and the outcome is predictable, no questions asked, no inconvenient “truth tellers,” talkative insiders are jailed, gagged, murdered, others are silenced more creatively, even less publicly.

Only a week ago, a top defense insider, popular with veterans groups, up to his neck in germ warfare and military secrets was murdered and thrown into a garbage truck. A week later, for all the public knows, he might have been hit by a meteorite. No one in the news has asked anything, nor will they.

I am suggesting that they, “they” meaning our media “overseers” got the word, “hands off.”

This time, “lone gunman”… “loner”… “malcontent”…

The media is alerted, marshaling their forces, shills, disinformants, provocateurs, assets, “sayanim,” pundits, a colonel here, a general there, the “just add water” thieves and liars brigade.

What is murder when you can invade countries, kidnap, and torture or steal trillions? AIPAC wants Jonathan Pollard released, not because he has been in prison so long but they seem to be bothered by the absurdity of jailing spies anymore. Jail is for whistleblowers only nowadays.

No Sign This Is A Tea Bag Hit

The Palinites, also known as the Tea Party, are little but Fascist wannabee’s, former playground snitches and mama’s boys. They aren’t going to kill anyone with their misspelled signs “pickup truck” anarchism. The only thing a TP is a threat to is the “taters and gravy” section of a $5 buffet.

Why A Conspiracy?

We now live in a world where conspiracy is Occam’s Razor. When can you get a member of congress and federal judge in a parking lot, middle of town, public rally, both under death threats, no police in ten miles, no U.S. Marshals, no video cameras (Gifford always brings a video team)?

Kennedy warned us that secrecy would bring us tyranny.

GORDON DUFF: Zionism’s “Anti-Semitism” Ploy, A Dangerous Game

Zionism’s “Anti-Semitism” Ploy, A Dangerous Game

*  Making The World Fear And Hate Jews A Dreadfully Wrong Policy

When the rabbi advising Prime Minister Netanyahu goes on television claiming “goyim,” all non-Jews, only are allowed to stay alive as beasts of burden, serving Jews who are ordained by g-d to “bask in luxury” from the work of others, it isn’t an accident. He had a job. That job was to make people hate Jews. If people forget to hate Jews, Israel will have no purpose, it won’t need nuclear weapons or the continual wars it has convinced the United States to fight in its stead.

When Antisemitism began to disappear and Jews were no longer reviled because of primitive prejudices, Zionists lost a valuable weapon. The real problem is that the weapon, meant to serve expansionist Israel is also a weapon that has in the past sacrificed the lives of millions of Jews.

When a synagogue is burned, a Zionist lights the fire. When an Antisemitic slogan is painted on a wall, the offending hand is that of a Zionist. The world would have long forgotten its bizarre ideas of Jews as Christ killers and moneylenders were it not profitable for political extremists with no real religious views at all to renew them and give them life.

We are seeing a resurgence in Antisemitism, hatred of Jews as human beings, because of Zionism. America, in economic collapse, tired after 10 years of war and a total loss of faith in government is now being forced into two more wars, Korea and Iran. The hand of the ultra-nationalists, the Likudists in Israel and the ADL and AIPAC, their American “fifth column” is obvious to everyone. The terror attacks on 9/11 are now branded as “false flag” and even the most dull witted are seeing the hand of Israel.

American Jews, long convinced that Israel stood vulnerable to attack, subjected to constant terrorism are now questioning. It doesn’t take a genius to see that the stupidity of Israel, the blatant human rights violations in Gaza, the ties to long discredited neocon extremists in America, the attack on the Freedom Flotilla and the continual drum-beating for war on Iran, is going to have consequences. It is already happening.

An American public, dumbed down by decades of censored press, substandard education and propaganda is only inches away from becoming a violent mob. The rage against Islam, created for profit, created as a screen for oil and arms thievery and the looting of trillions of dollars from the American economy, has run its course. Hundreds of thousands of veterans have returned from war, reporting only corruption in their own leadership. The terror training camps, the bunker complexes, Osama bin Laden, all never found, perhaps they never existed at all. This is what is being said.

In 1940, Adolf Hitler was the most popular man in America. His hatred of Jews was seen as one of his best characteristics. Hitler had accused Jews of financial attacks on Germany, of building world communism. His proof was a few documents, unclear as to origin and yet, most of the world chose to follow him. Today, Israel under its current leadership spits in the face of nearly every nation, its academic leaders threaten Western Europe with nuclear attack, its religious leaders speak of American troops as “donkeys” to be sacrificed, no accusation made against Iran comes close to the things Israel publicly announces about itself.

Who could be this stupid? We know it is a game, building hatred of Jews so as to keep national victimhood status. Israel, or rather key groups claiming to be Israel, have made billions on this game.

Fomenting hatred for the Jewish people for financial gain, for political gains, spreading fear, all part of a childishly obvious globalist ploy is insane.

Mikey Weinstein and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation picked up on the problem early on. The love affair between the American right, the Christian Zionists, quickly turned to its Antisemitic roots when Jewish cadets at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs complained about persecution at the hands of supposed “Zionist” Christians.

The thrall followers of pro-apocalypse preacher, John Hagee, Israel’s “bestest” friend in America, have always been “strange bedfellows” for any minority, particularly Jews with their history of valuing education and support for progressive causes. Hagee and his followers represent primitive and backward beliefs, violent, racist, extremist in every way.

Christian Zionism, as a religious doctrine, looks on Judaism as an abomination. Though it supports the return of Jews to Israel, it also supports the destruction of Israel and the forced conversion of all Jews to Christianity. They simply jumped the gun a bit at the Air Force Academy.

Nazi Zionists

One of the hidden undersides of Hitler’s policies toward the Jews was his alliance with Zionists. With all current battles pitting one version of the Holocaust against another with historical revisionists claiming that the holocaust is a myth created to further a Hitleresque “Greater Israel” plan, those things that are well within known history are sometimes pushed aside. One of those things is the strange relationship between Zionists and Hitler, a relationship even a “revisionist” has to admit had unpleasant consequences.

Lenni Brenner, in Counterpunch, writes of his discovery of this dark and shrouded period in history, a period when Zionist Jews in Germany came to an agreement with Hitler. He would call them to control Jewish life in Germany, eventually settling Jews in Palestine in a pro-German Nazi state. Zionist Palestine, allied with Hitler, was meant to offset British and German influence in the Middle East, a policy almost identical with the American Middle East Strategy a generation later. In fact, Israeli policies, first seen as “apartheid” and now more closely resembling the ethnic cleansing of the Serbs, also seems to have a truly “Hitleresque” aspect.

Following the odd history of the relationship between the Zionists and Hitler’s Nazi party, Jews cheering Wehrmacht victories, Jews shocked and dismayed at the Stalingrad defeat, a bitter pill for historians who have to fit this well documented mainstream scenario into a more fanciful historical narrative.

The clear note here, of course, Zionism isn’t Jews and opposing Zionist policies should have nothing to do with labeling anyone, race, religion, ethnicity, not damning them or their children. However, in our imperfect world, those who too often let greed and ambition blind them from the baser aspects of the human soul do so often misjudge. Believing that only you can hate, can deceive, can connive, is the height of arrogance. The Greeks call that hubris.

We call such people fools, perhaps something worse.

GORDON DUFF: The Wiki Hoax

The Wiki Hoax

*  The Global Conspiracy Behind The Boyish Grin…

True colors, we are seeing them now. Those still trying to peddle the Wikileaks myth, the boyish grin concealing the powerful conspiracy, espionage and treason at the highest levels of American society, these are the real enemies of the information age.

There are two opinions of Wikileaks. The world’s intelligence services all, every single one, believes Wikileaks is simply an intelligence agency playing games. They say this to each other, Vladimir Putin and Zbigniew Brzezinski have announced it to the world and others are following suit.

Nobody, at least nobody typically “answerable” will say the word “Israel” but it is what they mean when they say “intelligence agency.” They mean Israel. Every Wikileak does something to help Israel in a different way at a different time. If Israel has a problem, a Wikileak is there, part of the solution. This time, Secretary Clinton was in the way and Wikileaks showed up to gut the State Department and give Israel the usual “buff and polish” job they usually do.

There is another group, not a group that actually believes Wikileaks is real, few but the “Joe Six-Pack” crowd buys that, but a group that loves Wikileaks like an addict loves a fix. The press loves Wikileaks. I even love Wikileaks. Wikileaks is pushing readership through the roof, not just America but worldwide. Wikileaks is a news marketing phenomenon like any disaster. There is a reason the media are compared to vultures and hyenas.

Killing Wikileaks as the hoax it is, and not a harmless hoax, not by a long shot, is like killing the golden goose. Wikileaks sells news, pulls up website traffic to unimaginable levels, even crashes servers from overload. There isn’t just one story, teaching the world how bad America is, there is also the daytime TV drama, the soap opera of Julian Assange.

I wonder when the public will pick up on the endless stream of carefully posed, carefully staged photos. Just imagine meeting Assange, hiding from Interpol, running for his life, the CIA hunting him down, angry “date rape” victims lurking the streets of London and Amsterdam. He always has time for the media, never misses an interview.

“Julian, look to the side, leer a bit… look threatening. OK, another one, this time… softer… something the gay community will like. OK, that was great.”

Wikileaks would be funny if it weren’t getting people killed, something almost everyone agrees on. Those with a powerful desire to “buy in,” the disaffected, the overt and “closet” America haters and, most of all, the bored. Wikileaks is perfect for people with nothing to do, nothing to talk about and absolutely no knowledge about foreign policy or defense. There is something for everyone in Wikileaks, rape, gay sex, car chases, everything but truth.

Nasty Truth

Why call Wikileaks a hoax? Many have now pointed out that some things don’t make sense, that selected very nasty information seems to have been dug out, all “one sided,” and very much not simple “leaks.” Wikileaks is propaganda sold as truth. Are the things in Wikileaks lies? Here is a good analogy for Wikileaks:

There are three houses on a street for sale. One man, a neighbor down the block, puts up a website claiming a murderer and child rapist lives on the street. The website is correct, as are Wikileaks, there is a murderer and child rapist living on the street, but as we might guess, this isn’t the entire story.

Property values plummet. More homes go up for sale. Nobody will buy there and those who are there all want to leave.

The three houses go into foreclosure and more on the way. The man who puts up the website buys them for half their value, the families who owned them are now living in a public shelter for the homeless.

What the website doesn’t say is that the person who put it up is the murder and child rapist. Welcome to Wikileaks and “warfare through deception.”

The FBI And AIPAC

We are supposed to believe that Julian Assange and Bradley Manning have outwitted the FBI, made fools of them. Ann Coulter is beating that drum, part of her crusade against gays in general. What’s not to hate? Seldom overweight, nicely dressed, financially successful, better educated than most, certainly not a demographic that would appeal to Ann Coulter, hardly the kind of Americans she caters to.

Selling the “Bradley Manning” myth, that accused serial rapist Assange’s “gay lover” looted the Pentagon of its least vital secrets, bringing America’s evil Fascist dictatorship to its knees… the myth. There is also the minor problem that Manning was in jail when the other leaks occurred. The excuse given, Assange has been sitting on the information for months, simply doesn’t hold water.

Judy Woodruff of PBS, while interviewing former national security advisors Zbigniew Brzezinski and Stephen Hadley, made an attempt to sell the Bradley Manning myth. Watch Brzezinski and Hadley shut her down like an alarm clock stuck on a “rap” station:

JUDY WOODRUFF:  But a lot of these documents have been in the hands — haven’t they been in the hands of WikiLeaks for some time?

ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI:  We don’t know that for a fact.

JUDY WOODRUFF:  …because of — because of this private who is in jail and accused, Army private?

STEPHEN HADLEY:  We don’t know it!

Publicly, the FBI is silent, choosing ignominy and survival. Highly placed sources indicate the AIPAC spy scandal, now shoved under the rug, was 10 times the extent of the infamous Pollard affair. We are told there is solid evidence of widespread espionage extending to the highest levels of, not only Defense but the Executive branch as well. Arrest warrants were being prepared for more than several Bush officials and several currently serving President Obama. With two presidents being blackmailed because their administrations had been totally penetrated by spies, the FBI was called off.

Grant Smith discusses the Rosen v. AIPAC lawsuit that threatens to bring Washington to its knees with an espionage scandal of unimagined proportions:

Steven J. Rosen’s defamation lawsuit against the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is now entering a critical phase. A series of cross-filings stakes out the critical court terrain. Rosen intends to show that obtaining and leveraging classified U.S. government information in the service of Israel is common practice at AIPAC. He claims it was unfair for AIPAC to fire and malign him in the press after he was indicted on espionage charges in 2005.

On March 2, 2009, Rosen filed the civil lawsuit against his former employer, directors, and an outside public relations firm for libel and slander. Rosen, AIPAC’s former foreign policy chief, seeks $5 million in damages from AIPAC, and punitive damages of $500,000 from each former board member, for a total claim of $21 million. AIPAC made statements to the news media Rosen believes were “knowingly false and defamatory and issued in reckless disregard.” AIPAC fired Rosen and fellow employee Keith Weissman after they were criminally indicted under the 1917 Espionage Act in 2005. Both were caught up in an FBI sting operation receiving classified information from Department of Defense employee Col. Lawrence Franklin, who pled guilty and turned state’s witness.

Rosen’s legal counsel David H. Shapiro gruffly advised AIPAC’s attorney Thomas L. McCally that he would be seeking “serious discovery” on Rosen’s behalf during a status hearing on June 5, 2009. It is this sort of public intrusion guided by knowledgeable insiders, following already devastating FBI raids, that AIPAC probably wants to avoid at all costs.

Ironically, Rosen’s civil lawsuit, like the failed government prosecution, hinges on proving that circulating classified information is common practice inside AIPAC.

What FBI insiders have alluded to is that the the case should have been allowed to follow the investigation which had led, not just to a vast Israeli spy ring operating through AIPAC but to falsifying the intelligence reports used to justify the ill fated U.S. invasion of, not only Iraq but Afghanistan. Sources indicate that Wikileaks is seen as an attempt to duplicate the espionage and treason of 2001 and 2003, but this time aimed at Iran.

Wikileaks As An Entertainment Commodity

There is little doubt that the primary purpose of Wikileaks has always been to clear the way for an attack on Iran. If one ignores what Zbigniew Brzezniski calls “seeding” with “pointed intelligence,” what he says is proof Wikileaks is an intelligence operation, the Wikileaks saga can be appreciated for drama alone. Would anyone be surprised to see Assange on Skating with the Stars? After all, Bristol Palin had a very successful season on Dancing with the Stars and Assange may actually be a less controversial figure.

Is Julian Assange going to be arrested and sentenced to counseling for sex addition? Can anyone imagine Assange making a public apology? That would be worth staying up late for.

Anyone in the industry recognizes a few basic things about Assange. Everything is staged, everything is managed. Anyone who doesn’t see the handiwork of a professional publicist and agent, the “personal assistant,” the body guards and all the other trappings of Britney or Lindsay, is, well, part of the act themselves. Assange is just a shill, a “carny.” Britney deserves better than the comparison.

The 500 Pound Gorilla

Calling Wikileaks a simple hoax is a kindness. Maybe we can call 9/11 a hoax also. Will the families of the dead feel any better? History will prove Wikileaks, 9/11, the invasion of Iraq, the mindless and seemingly eternal fiasco of Afghanistan are all acts in the same play, certainly a tragedy but hardly Shakespearean.

Bradley Manning isn’t the “Wikileaker,” not by a long shot. If the FBI’s assertions about AIPAC are correct and there is no reason to believe otherwise, Wikileaks could easily be the small army of “dual citizens,” the only possible suspects. There is no other group able to silence and shelve the FBI, able to pull documents out of databases at Defense, State, foreign embassies. The sad attempts to blame Manning or the Chinese, certainly victims of the recent revelations, are acts of desperation.

Wikileaks the hoax isn’t an area for rumination. You accept the fact or show your colors, red white and blue, or blue and white.

That time is here, the debates are long over. Assange a hero? Assange a victim? Where you see those questions, look behind them. You will see the smiling face of treason, not for the first time.

Wikileaks, A Touch Of Assange And The Stench Of AIPAC

*  “recent admissions that the Israeli lobby, AIPAC, routinely receives masses of classified information makes them suspect #1 for being the source of Wikileaks”

Wikileaks is like a TV show that never gets off the ground. We started with a “shoot ’em up” in Iraq, the helicopter slaughter soon forgotten and move on to, well, what? We got a deluge of material from Afghanistan, carefully gleaned to point fingers at Pakistan. When it came down to backing any of it up, it went nowhere.

Considering the massive corruption and drug scandals, even the revelations that President Karzai has been in negotiations with pranksters pretending to be the Talbian, all the really juicy stuff from Afghanistan must have been in another drawer. Then we got Iraq. Ah, Iraq. There, we could check. We know the people who wrote the leaked material. They told us Wikileaks edited it, altered it, redacted it more than the Pentagon.

The “Iraq War Log” was, well… phony. There is one thing that has been consistent about Wikileaks and our prediction is that this next batch, reputed to be millions of highly sensitive documents, will prove our point. Wikileaks is Israel.

Wikileaks is an intelligence operation to weaken and undermine the American government, orchestrated from Tel Aviv, using dozens of operatives, dual citizens, some at the highest authority levels, spies for Israel. Through leaking carefully selected intelligence along with proven falsified documents, all fed to a controlled press, fully complicit, Wikileaks is, in fact, an act of war against the United States.

How Can Israel Sift Through Defense Documents?

This last week, in a lawsuit over an AIPAC, (Israel’s lobby) employee reputedly fired for being caught spying against the U.S., news stories across the United States reported that, as part of that $20 million civil case, evidence will be presented that masses of classified material come to AIPAC and Israel continually. Is AIPAC Wikileaks? The only evidence of any massive leak discovered in the Pentagon is AIPAC. Last week’s Washington Post story was buried quicker than a carp in a playground: Jeff Stein, at the Washinton Post, reports the following:

Rosen says his actions were common practice at the organization. He said his next move is to show that AIPAC, Washington’s major pro-Israeli lobbying group by far, regularly traffics in sensitive U.S. government information, especially material related to the Middle East. “I will introduce documentary evidence that AIPAC approved of the receipt of classified information,” he said by e-mail. “Most instances of actual receipt are hard to document, because orally received information rarely comes with classified stamps on it nor record’s alerts that the information is classified.”

But Rosen said he would produce “statements of AIPAC employees to the FBI, internal documents, deposition statements, public statements and other evidence showing that [the] receipt of classified information by employees other than [himself] … was condoned … for months prior to being condemned in March 2005 after threats from the prosecutors.”

How does this apply to Wikileaks? The answer, if we bother to put the pieces together, is staring us in the face. The proof, the ultimate proof, however, will be in the current batch of documents that have already been prepared, weeks of work by dozens with access to classified documents, and only one group has that access and can operate with impunity, as was shown in a recent story in Veterans Today:

AIPAC is a sham. The group has, over the years, destroyed anyone who has tried to have it named what it really is, a dangerous foreign lobby and nest of spies. AIPAC is the most feared organization in Washington and most powerful, above any law. A former employee of AIPAC, Steve Rosen, who AIPAC claims was a spy, more appropriately a “caught” spy, now claims his former employer does nothing but spy. Rosen stands to get $20 million in his defamation lawsuit against AIPAC.

He isn’t without motive but we have also learned that Rosen has considerable documentation of AIPAC receiving and disseminating classified information, received from, well, we have to call them traitors, inside the U.S. government. We know that a vast spy ring operates in Washington and that Israel is the center of it.

We also know that Israel, Turkey, India, Pakistan, China and Russia trade American secrets back and forth like baseball cards. We know that AIPAC is deeply involved in this spying. We know that AIPAC claims to hold signed letters of unconditional support from 80% of the members of congress, all of whom received campaign contributions arranged by AIPAC, with many elections financed almost entirely by AIPAC, a group involved, according to the Washington Post and Steve Rosen, in spying on the United States with seeming complicity by the FBI itself.

What Do We Look For, How Can We Prove Israel Or AIPAC May Be Behind Wikileaks?

Were we to ask author Jeff Gates, he would point to the “storytelling” aspect of Wikileaks, Assange and his “on again-off again” rape charges or that someone that manages to make it to continual television interviews can’t be found by police or security services. We call this “storytelling” and Jeff Gates tells us that Israel, the power behind Hollywood and the American press, is the “storyteller” of all time.

There are better ways to “prove,” a word as subjective as any of the storytelling around the Wikileaks myth itself. The proof, always depending on who accepts the proof, and as is almost always the case, dependent on whether the press itself chooses to report it, which if Israel is involved, is more than a bit predictable itself. Lack of reporting potential Israeli complicity in Wikileaks, knowing AIPAC and Israel have the longest history of accessing classified information and, by far, the strongest agenda for leaking information, could be seen as conclusive proof itself.

What Will Be In Wikileaks?

If dual citizens who make up much of the Pentagon’s leadership are working with Israel or AIPAC to formulate Wikileaks, as seems to be the case, then the upcoming leak will serve a pro-Israeli agenda, even if it damages the United States, as other Wikileaks have. These are Israeli agenda items:

·  Discrediting Obama foreign policy in order to weaken the president’s influence with congress to push for a halt on new settlements in Palestine and the forced removal of Islamic property owners.
·  Accusations involving Turkey, now feuding with Israel over the killing of Turkish citizens on the Mavi Marmara, now recognized as a purely humanitarian mission. These accusations against Turkey may include weapons being supplied to terrorists in Iraq, a fanciful abuse of reality. What will not be reported, if this story is “leaked” either through Wikileaks or the other Israeli sources, “Debka”… “Stratfor”… “FamilySecurityMatters.org”… or the infamous “IsraelNationalNews.com” is Israel’s 40 years of complicity in the very acts they now accuse Turkey of.
·  More importantly, is the issue of blaming Turkey for the actions of the terrorist group, PKK, long funded by Israel and now claimed to be allied to Al Qaeda, is vital to Israel’s strategy against Turkey.
·  Expect Pakistan to be hit, as usual. An Islamic nuclear power with a top rate million man army that outclasses Israel hands down, Pakistan, primary competitor for U.S. aid dollars, a country that actually has agreements with the United States and real troops fighting alongside Americans, will get their usual Wikileaks bashing.

Wikileaks Is Chickenfeed Meant To Cover Israel’s Tail

Is it a coincidence that documents regarding Israel, their spying, influence peddling, suspicions of complicity in terrorism, Yemen, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, across Europe and even the Detroit bombing, those reports are there, they are classified but you will never see one on Wikileaks. In fact, they are the only classified information that never gets out to the news. Is that because, as we have learned, the borders of Israel extend well into Washington DC, well into the Pentagon? What won’t we see in Wikileaks:

·  Nothing in Wikileaks will accuse anyone, even Pakistan or Afghanistan, or complicity in narcotics trafficking nor mention the huge new narcotics industry operating in Iraq. Ask yourself why.
·  One of the biggest areas of complaint in the Pentagon, more classified White Papers have been written on this than anything else: “How Israel is Endangering the United States”
·  In fact, the biggest “classified” debate in America is what supporting Israel, a nation with incredible wealth and utterly obnoxious leaders costs the United States. Rumors of such issues aren’t rumors at all. When General Petraeus presented his now famous power-point presentation to Admiral Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, outlining how Israel is undermining American foreign policy, he wasn’t operating without tens of thousands of pages of intelligence behind him. Not one page, not one word of these studies will be in Wikileaks.
·  When Vice President Joe Biden said the following to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu:

“This is starting to get dangerous for us, what you’re doing here undermines the security of our troops who are fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. That endangers us and it endangers regional peace.”

Are we to believe these statements were taken out of thin air? In fact, Petraeus, Mullen and Biden are only the tip of the iceberg. Admiral Mullen, America’s top military leader under the Commander in Chief, has repeatedly cited Israel and America’s relationship, as, not only a liability but something far worse, so much worse that:

As public statements by Admiral Mullen, Vice President Biden, General Petraeus and others, citing America’s relationship with Israel as a military disaster, are obviously “watered down” for public consumption, can you imagine what classified reports are saying?

Why President Obama Is Afraid And Why America Is Paralyzed

The greatest fear any president has, even more than impeachment, is the fate of Jimmy Carter. Carter, now pegged as an “Anti-semite” and “enemy of the state” in Israel, is still being sold to Americans as something quite the opposite of reality. Friends in Israel, if they want to start a row, something not too difficult in Israel as you might guess, will walk around carrying one of Jimmy Carter’s books under their arm. A Yasser Arafat t-shirt and suicide vest are considered only marginally worse. Carter left office under mysterious circumstances. Several disasters, high interest rates, the hostage crisis and the failed rescue attempt showed signs of conspiratorial meddling. His real crimes were:

·  Pushing Israel for a durable and lasting Middle East peace
·  Monetary policies that kept America out of debt…
·  Support of Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid
·  Unwillingness to engage in military adventure

When the defense and oil lobby joined with Israel and Wall Street to crush the Carter presidency, the writing was on the wall. Interest rates, the “October surprise” and the military sabotaging the hostage rescue attempt, these things destroyed President Carter who might, otherwise, have suffered an “accident” like the Kennedy brothers. Today, millions of Americans who should be praying to return to Carter’s foreign policy and fiscal conservatism, are taught to look on him as a failure. However, more and more, historians are seeing Carter as the last American president. Every leader since has been dictated to by Israel.
