Latest Middle East War Scheme Revealed

January 2, 2020

 

One mercenary’s death is used to force new wars upon Iraq, Iran and Syria. The US political leadership demonstrates what Christmas is not about, by bombing several sites over the holidays. Reportedly the U/S killed 19 Iranians and Syrians, wounding some 50 on the last, sad days of 2019. How many of those killed were civilians is not disclosed.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo let us know the Arabs had it coming, having killed an “American contractor” three days prior.  He stated, “the strikes send the message that the US will not tolerate actions by Iraq that jeopardize American lives.”

A spokesman for the Iraqi government claimed that top officials had “pleaded with the United States”not to go ahead with the threatened Sunday night airstrikes. But to no avail.

Associated Press reported that three days later, on Dec 31, Iraqi protesters burned property in front of the US Embassy compound in Baghdad, Iraq.

“Dozens of angry Iraqi Shiite militia supporters broke into the US Embassy compound in Baghdad on Tuesday after smashing the central door and setting fire to a reception area, prompting tear gas and sounds of gunfire. There were no reports of casualties.”

US Press, from the New York Times to the Nashville Democrat, have all reported on the bombings and the follow-up assault on the US Embassy, but this author has yet to see anybody raise two vital questions:

First question: Why does the US military attack a country where we maintain an actively staffed embassy? Is not our embassy a symbol of peace and cooperation? What can be the motives of politicians who direct military raids that kill dozens in a country with whom we have diplomatic relations? Is this a scheme to force new wars?

Second question: We are told the US deadly military raids were in response to Iraq killing a single American “military contractor.” But Is a “contractor” in fact a war mercenary, hired by a private company, and paid to carry out often questionable legal acts?

Our President tweeted that he will “protect all Americans.” Should this include mercenary warriors on unknown missions paid by private companies, many of which companies are weapon makers? And is not the purpose of “contractors” to carry out clandestine, politically questionable tasks, some that US military would not or could not legally do? The individual’s name has not been released, nor has the contracting company and its mission when he was killed!

We are correct in calling this unnamed warrior a “mercenary”. Our Secretary of State and President are using this contractor’s death as the latest but weakest excuse for a new war with Iraq, Iran and Syria. He has yet to be named, nor have we been told the circumstances of his death, how much he was paid, what his orders were, and who issued them. It is unlikely we ever will.

His employer is not required to tell us what he was doing or why. But we ask, why do we taxpayers pay contractors more money to do secret jobs in undeclared wars than we pay our own Marines? Because they carry out the political agenda of our President and others!

Only The Atlantic took note of the push for war. Use of mercenaries is not an isolated case; it is the norm against the oils rich Middle East. Atlantic points out that, as of June 2011, 554 private contractors died in the first Iraq war. And of those 254 were Americans and 59 Britons.

Contractors hire former military-trained Americans, who become mercenaries, flying below the radar of accountability under the US military code of conduct. No wonder it is so easy to get into the wars. Leaders, including our present administration, have for years privately agitated for war that results in slaughter of victims, using excuses like this one.

The US President has already ordered 14,000 Marines be dispatched (at taxpayer expense) to Iraq because of the minor breach of security (no injuries) at the US Embassy

We Hold These Truths has always taught that war is a business, maintained by those who profit from it. War must be hidden from us less we revolt! This is why the mercenary military is such a big, secret part of creating endless wars. US Marine Corp Major General Smedley Butler said it best when he wrote “War is a racket.”


Charging Interest is Immoral and Unchristian for Certain Types of Loans

December 16, 2019

Apparently the bible references usury several times. And if you do an internet search (with Google), you’ll get over 6 million results. So people have a lot to say about it.

Hilaire Belloc had something to say about usury and I’ve copied from the Russian Faith website (probably because I’m too lazy to look it up myself).

 

This article is an excerpt from Hilaire Belloc’s book: Economics for Helen – A Brief Outline of Real Economy.

Usury, the last subject but one on which I am going to touch in this book, is one which modern people have almost entirely forgotten, and which you will not find mentioned in any book on Economics that I know. Yet its vital importance was recognised throughout all history until quite lately, and it is already forcing itself upon modern people’s notice whether they like it or now. So it is as well to understand it betimes, for it is going to be discussed very widely in the near future.

All codes of law and all writers on morals from the beginning of anything we know about human society have denounced as wrong the practice of USURY.

They have recognised that this practice does grave harm to the State and to society as a whole, and must, therefore, as far as possible, be forbidden.

Now what is Usury, and why does it thus do harm?

Modern people have so far forgotten this exceedingly important matter that they have come to use the word “usury” loosely for “the taking of high interest on a loan.” That is very muddled thinking indeed, as you will see in a moment. The character of Usury has nothing to do with the taking of high or low interest. It is concerned with something quite different.

Usury is the taking of any interest whatever on an UNPRODUCTIVE loan.

Jews Demand Obedience, Apologies From Church of England

December 9, 2019

The following is a long review of a new book,“God’s Unfailing Word,” (2019) published by the Church of England, and I like Dr. Andrew Joyce’s review of it.

If it can be said that Europeans are today largely blind to Jewish aggressions, then Christians are among those fumbling around in deepest darkness. Historian Jonas Alexis once remarked that, contrary to older Christian anger at depictions of Jesus and Christianity in the Talmud, no such reactions are evident in relation to modern the Jewish comedy in which “Jesus, Christians and the cross are routinely mocked, even obscenely treated.”[1]

Jewish aggression against Christianity is, of course, nothing new. In the fifth century, edicts had to be pronounced banning Jews from burning and desecrating crosses, and Socrates Scholasticus reported in Historia Ecclesiastica that Jews had taken a Christian boy during Purim and crucified him.[2] In his Princeton-published Reckless Rites: Purim and the Legacy of Jewish Violence (2006), Elliott Horowitz pointed out multiple cases of Jews urinating on, and otherwise exposing their genitals to, crosses from 12th-century Germany and 13th-century England.[3] Even today, Daniel Rossing, a former advisor on Christian affairs to Israel’s religious Affairs Ministry, has commented on anti-Christian violence in Israel, which peaks during Purim. “I know Christians who lock themselves indoors during the entire Purim holiday,” he says. And yet, while Christians are spat upon and assaulted in Israel, and mocked and obscenely treated in the [Christian] Diaspora, the majority of Christians remain among the most guilt-ridden and philosemitic of Europeans, applauding Zionist wars that kill their sons, and lauding a people that has done more than any other to overturn traditional Christian moral values. It is one of the most glaring contradictions in this age of contradictions.

The Deep Christian Faith of Tchaikovsky, Russia’s Greatest Composer

November 7, 2019

I listen to Tchaikovsky in my car every day, and it lifts my spirit. mw

Every year, in the Church of Joy of All Who Sorrow on Bolshaya Ordynka, before and on the day of the namesake feast, the All-Night Vigil and the Divine Liturgy are celebrated to the music of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

No one can say exactly how music affects a person’s faith: it’s all very subjective. However, I remember a story that I read somewhere about a female musician who was very vocal in her opposition to the restitution of the building of a church that had been closed during the Soviet era and in which the city orchestra was housed. The building was returned to the Church, and everything calmed down, but after a while the woman turned to the priest and asked him to listen to her confession and to give her communion for the first time. She said that she owed her conversion to faith to Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, or rather, to the finale of his Sixth Symphony.

The Church of Joy of All Who Sorrow on Bolshaya Ordynka

At one point, she noticed the colloquial tone of the composer’s musical phrases, and she was amazed to hear the following phrases behind the main melody of the finale of the symphony: “Have mercy on me. Have mercy on me. Have mercy, mercy, forgiveness and mercy…”

It is a well-known fact that Tchaikovsky was born into an Orthodox family, and that his heavenly patron was Apostle Peter. However, when his mother died, his attitude towards religion changes, he lapses, and speaks ironically about all matters related to faith and church life. Everything changes after his failed marriage, and Pyotr Ilyich returns to seeking God. In his letters to his friend N. F. von Meck, he expresses his religious convictions of that time, which are contradictory, as is usually the case with those people who are looking for their lost inner support, who respect the believers and love the Church, but do not regard themselves as Christians.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

His return to the faith and thoughts about God affects the work of Tchaikovsky, and he writes his first spiritual piece, The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, followed by All-Night Vigil. His unbelief was soon shattered by the death of his close friend N. Rubinstein, and Pyotr Ilyich writes in his letter to von Meck:

“I often pray to Him with tears (where is He, who is He? – I don’t know, but I know that He exists) and ask Him to give me humility and love, I ask Him to forgive me and instruct me, and most importantly, I sweetly say to Him, “Lord, may Your will be done”, for I know that His will is holy. […] I want to love God always, both when He sends me happiness and when the trials come. For there must be a kingdom of eternal happiness somewhere, to which we aspire in vain on earth. There will come an hour when all the questions that are beyond our grasp will be resolved and when we will understand why God finds it necessary to send us trials. I want to believe that there is a future life.”

Tchaikovsky approaches the last stage of his creative activity in a very different mood: his need for repentance and atonement of sin is growing. This may have caused the composer’s rapid spiritual growth in the 1880s and 1890s.

For Tchaikovsky, the period from 1885 until the end of his life is associated with particularly frequent visits to church. He usually marks Saturdays and Sundays in his diaries next to the dates and also writes that he attended the All-Night Vigil and went to the Divine Liturgy.

It is well-known that in the last years of his life Tchaikovsky begins his scores with “Lord bless me” and ends them with gratitude to God: “Lord, thank you! Today, on March 24, I finished the drafts completely! (referring to the drafts of the Sixth Symphony); “Thank God. I finished my opera, having started it on January 19/31 at 6:30 a.m. March 3/15” (drafts of the opera “Queen of Spades”); “Glory and gratitude to God!” (drafts of the ballet “Sleeping Beauty”), etc. There is also a record in his diary: “After a prayer, I started the instrumentation”.

Finally, on the verge of his own death, Tchaikovsky creates his Sixth Symphony, in which he reflects on tragic questions and doubts, hopes and insights, happy moments, losses, distress and sad reconciliation of his entire life.

The composer died nine days after the premiere of the symphony, on the 6th of November, the feast day of the Joy of All Who Sorrow icon.
