A Hypocrite’s Prayer, Self-Proclaimed Prophets, and Other Anomalies

A PROFILE OF RICK PERRY’S ‘PRAYER’ SUPPORTERS

Three days ago I posted The Hypocrite’s Masquerade, an article I wrote on Texas Governor Rick Perry and his somewhat dubious “prayer and fast” rally held August 6 at a sports stadium in Houston. The article covered Perry’s apparent devotion to the state of Israel and ended with the observation that his daylong ecclesiastical clambake, known as “The Response,”  was little more than “a masquerade ball of hypocrites and false prophets,” as I termed it at the time. Apparently I was closer to the truth than I realized. Now comes a story in the Texas Observer on a group of “radical Christians and self-proclaimed prophets,” some of whom played leading roles in organizing the event and who have, apparently quite avidly, thrown their support behind the Texas governor, now a formally-declared presidential candidate. From the story:

On September 28, 2009, at 1:40 p.m., God’s messengers visited Rick Perry. On this day, the Lord’s messengers arrived in the form of two Texas pastors, Tom Schlueter of Arlington and Bob Long of San Marcos, who called on Perry in the governor’s office inside the state Capitol. Schlueter and Long both oversee small congregations, but they are more than just pastors. They consider themselves modern-day apostles and prophets, blessed with the same gifts as Old Testament prophets or New Testament apostles. The pastors told Perry of God’s grand plan for Texas. A chain of powerful prophecies had proclaimed that Texas was “The Prophet State,” anointed by God to lead the United States into revival and Godly government. And the governor would have a special role.

According to the story, the two pastors are members of the New Apostolic Reformation, a group which the Texas Observer describes as “a little-known but increasingly influential movement at the periphery of American Christianity.” The movement was founded by one C. Peter Wagner, who evidently sees himself at the vanguard of “the most radical change in the way of doing Christianity since the Protestant Reformation.” Eight people affiliated with the organization played roles on The Response “leadership team,” the newspaper avers. The article is a fairly respectable piece of journalism, though it suffers the flaw of including a quote from the rather discredited Southern Poverty Law Center. Be that as it may, if you go to the Texas Observer website you can read how some New Apostle members claim to have predicted earthquakes in Japan and have managed to convince themselves  that Perry is anointed by God to play “a leadership role beyond Texas.” And of course, there is the inevitable Christian Zionist infatuation with Israel:

Claims of such powers are rife among Wagner’s followers. Cindy Jacobs—a self-described “respected prophet” and Wagner protégée who runs a Dallas-area group called Generals International—claims to have predicted the recent earthquakes in Japan. “God had warned us that shaking was coming,” she wrote in Charisma magazine, an organ for the movement. “This doesn’t mean that it was His desire for it to happen, but more of the biblical fulfillment that He doesn’t do anything without first warning through His servants.”… …Last year Jacobs warned that if America didn’t return to biblical values and support Israel, God would cause a “tumbling of the economy and dark days will come,” according to Charisma. To drive the point home, Jacobs and other right-wing allies—including The Response organizers Lou Engle and California pastor Jim Garlow—organized a 40-day “Pray and Act” effort in the lead-up to the 2010 elections. Read more

hop over to the Charisma website also turns up an article entitled Muslim Extremists Threaten to Burn Christian Women, dated August 8, as well as a separate article, also dated the 8th, on the Palestinian statehood issue. A comment from one “Rickd”, accompanying the latter, asserts that “this is clearly an end times issue. We need to pray against the UN move.” A tip of the hat is in order to Greg Bacon at the Goon Squad blog for posting much of this information. Click hereto peruse his entire post on the matter, which includes a video of an Amy Goodman interview with Forrest Wilder, the reporter who wrote the Texas Observer story. Also included is a video of Jacobs giving a talk in which she suggests a connection between the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” and the blackbird die-off in Arkansas. As I’ve written a couple of times previously, Christian Zionists do not worship Jesus, they worship Jews. My own take on all this? With such leaders as these in its midst, Christianity may well be at its most serious crossroad in its 2000 year history. What is happening to the Christian faith strangely mirrors what is happening to America. Both in a sense are being decimated from within.

‘Promise Keepers’ Guidebook Written By Religious Terrorism Expert

August 14, 2011

by Mystery Worshiper

A month ago I was invited to a “Men’s Fellowship” hour at a local church. Because I live in the same small community, I know many of the fellows who attend, although I do not attend their community church. While in attendance, the only thing that surprised me was that they showed a film produced by Promise Keepers (PK). I was surprised because I had read some unfavorable things about the origin of PK. The following snippet is allegedly taken from Masculine Journey, a guidebook ghost-written for PK by Dr. Robert Hicks.

“Jesus was also very much zakar, phallic….Jesus was very much masculine, and masculine means being male, and bring male means having a penis. There’s no way around it. Some in church history could not tolerate the exposure of the Son of God’s genitalia. Therefore, you will never find a portrait of the crucifixion of Jesus with penis exposed even though it was a common Roman custom to crucify criminals naked. Even the Gospel writers tell us that Jesus’ outward. garment was torn into four pieces, leaving the inner tunic, which was then gambled for intact …That left nothing. No underpants. Nothing.”

That’s not the only eye-popping thing I learned, the rest is here. A good critique of Masculine Journey is here (pdf) and another here. At this point I’m thinking the outfit’s name ought to be ‘Penis Keepers’ but I’m not into that.

On a more sickening note, take a look (if you don’t throw up) at this religionist and how he “spiritualizes” sucking a baby’s mutilated penis. And the government authorities don’t call it child abuse. Come on!


Canadian criminologist says Al-Qaeda doesn’t exist

August 13, 2011

In 2008, World Public Opinion polled 17 countries to find out what people thought. Was Al-Qaeda behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States? Almost 50 percent of people thought Al Qaeda was behind the attacks (the blue lines on the chart).

But was it? Is there even a real outfit called Al Qaeda? Wikipedia thinks so, saying it “is a global militant Sunni Islamist group founded by Osama bin Laden sometime between August 1988 and late 1989.”

Canadian criminologist R.T. Naylor of McGill University and author of Wages of Crime, says:

Al Queda itself does not exist, except in the fevered imaginations of neo-cons and Likudniks, some of whom, I suspect, also know it is a myth, but find it extremely useful as a bogeyman to spook the public and the politicians to acquiesce in otherwise unacceptable policy initiatives at home and abroad. By those terms, Al Queda is cast like “the Mafia” and similar nonsense coming from police lobbies.

Former French intelligence officer, Pierre-Henri Bunel, observed:

The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the ‘TV watcher’ to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US and the lobbyists for the US war on terrorism are only interested in making money.

So the next time you hear “Al Qaeda” on CNN or FOX News, think of this formula: CIA + Mossad + MI5 = Al Qaeda. And you might be right.


Norway Shooter Anders Breivik: a Judeo-Masonic Terrorist

August 12, 2011
by Michael Hoffman
In the aftermath of crimes perpetrated by the Cryptocracy’s “lone nuts,” the controlled media seek to muddy the waters with competing theories, motives, background, ideologies and affiliations acribed to the shooter. In the case of Lee Harvey Oswald he has been presented as pro-Castro and anti-Castro; a CIA agent and a Soviet agent; a pawn of the Mafia and a stooge of the FBI. The JFK assassination itself has been presented as a military coup, a mafia hit, a CIA hit, a right wing hit, a left-wing hit etc. The same game has been played with the source of the cancer pandemic in the United States. It is exacerbated by drinking coffee; on the other hand, coffee prevents cancer; cancer is caused by junk food; on the other hand studies show there is no link between junk food and cancer. The point of all of this deliberately seeded confusion is to discourage us from seeking the real causes of cancer and the actual perpetrators of conspiracy. The end result of this misdirection is that the people tend to beieve that “everything causes cancer;” therefore they continue with their status quo lifestyle. The assassination of John F. Kennedy has been so muddied that there is the tendency to think, “everyone killed Kennedy.” Of course if everyone did it, then no one did; at least no one we can trace or indict or bring to justice.

Israel’s Hidden Faces, A Long Day’s Night for Us All

Why Do Most Americans Know Nothing About These Issues

by Dr Alan Sabrosky (Ph.D, University of Michigan), a ten-year US Marine Corps veteran and a 1986 graduate of the US Army War College. [Dedicated to Christian Zionists who worship the State of Israel. mysteryworshiper]This is not intended for those who follow these issues, but as a primer  for a general public (especially Americans) who do not follow them, and in fact are not even aware that they are issues!  Hoping that others may also find useful material in it.   Far too often, issues involving Israel and its actions are addressed in a sophisticated and complex manner, often with little or no linkage among them. This is fine for professionals who are well versed in the subject matter, and can infer detail and linkages where none is explicitly given or made. But it is NOT so for a general public, most of whom are not even aware that these issues exist, and have been exposed to a steady diet of pro-Israel propaganda throughout most if not all of their lives. This can be used in many ways, but I would focus on state and local officials, newspapers and radio and TV stations, and veterans groups. The classic “grass roots” approach is the only way to circumvent the virtual lock the Zionists have at the national level in the political realm and the media. So let us begin.

Towards a Changing View

I began as a supporter of Israel. I knew nothing of ‘the Nakba’ (Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in 1948) and wouldn’t have cared much if I had heard of it. In the years of death, ethnic cleansing and resettlement of peoples during and after WWII, it just didn’t matter. And with the USSR supporting most of the Arab countries, US support of Israel (like Iran under the Shah) made sense. It was only in the aftermath of the Six Days War (1967) that things changed.

Israeli Attack on the USS Liberty

On June 8, 1967, early in the Six-Day Middle East War, Israeli aircraft and motor torpedo boats attacked the USS Liberty, a US Navy intelligence ship off the coast. Over 200 sailors and Marines were killed or wounded. Israel declared it had mistaken the ship for an Egyptian horse transport, and the US Government accepted that explanation. So did I, until 8 years later. Then I learned. Separate attempts by the two carriers with the US 6th Fleet to launch aircraft to come to the rescue of the USS Liberty were recalled: The first by Defense Secretary Robert McNamara; the second personally by then-President Lyndon Johnson. Either rescue effort would have prevented most of the US casualties. It is interesting to know that even then, the US Commander-in-Chief valued Israel more than the lives of Americans in uniform. And isn’t it a pity that nothing has changed?

But the Killer is 9/11, orchestrated by Israel

We have all heard of 19 named Arabs in 4 planes, bringing down the two tallest buildings at the World Trade Center, striking the Pentagon, and putting one plane into a Pennsylvania field. We have not heard the rest of the story. It begins with WTC7,and creates an evidentiary trail leading directly to Israel and its cohorts in the US.

WTC7  – so much more than the proverbial  “smoking gun”

The 47-story WTC7 collapsed straight down into its own footprint the  evening of 9/11, even though it was not hit by a  plane. This map depicts  the layout of the World Trade Center, and the path of debris from the  impacting  aircraft. Note that smaller buildings  closer to the Twin Towers did not collapse in that manner, even though at  least one was hit by debris from  a plane and others by debris from  WTC1 & WTC2. A striking video involves  an interview on Dutch TV with a Dutch  demolitions expert named Danny Jowenko.

It  should be seen in its entirety:

YouTube – Veterans Today –

Some key images follow:

The Implications of WTC7

  • First, the controlled demolition of WTC7 means if one building at the WTC was wired for a controlled demolition, then all three were.
  • Second, the impacting civilian airliners were intended to provide a gruesome and shocking distraction that would facilitate the actual destruction of the buildings by other means.
  • Third, any successful operation of this type requires expertise, access to the target(s), and effective local support to facilitate post-attack escape & evasion.
  • Fourth, neither the 19 named Arabs nor any of their possible supporters in the US or elsewhere had the expertise, access and local support needed to do that.
  • Fifth, only Israel had the required expertise, access and local support – inside and outside of the US Government – and a positive incentive to bring down those buildings, which was to enrage the American public and bring the US into war against Israel’s enemies.

So much links Israel to 9/11 – Only a public confession is missing, e.g.

  • Many key Bush Administration officials came from PNAC (Project for a New American Century). All were Zionists (Israeli partisans). They wrote about the need for a “catalytic event” to mobilize the American people.
  • Eight months after coming into office, they got their catalytic event on 9/11, followed by the wars their agenda required.
  • The company providing 24/7 electronic & personal security to the WTC, Kroll Associates, was owned & operated by Zionists, as was the WTC itself as of July 2001.
  • The owners and their immediate relatives seem to have been uncharacteristically absent on the morning of 9/11. Hundreds of American Jews died at the WTC & the Pentagon, but as best as can be determined, only 3 Israelis out of some 4,000 normally there, plus 2 more on the planes.
  • The senior fatality among WTC personnel was a retired Irish-American FBI agent in his first days on his job as Director of Security.
  • A private Israeli-owned security company called ICTS, registered in the Netherlands, provided security services (sometimes through a wholly owned subsidiary) to all three airports from which the four hijacked planes departed.
  • ICTS also provided security at the airports in Paris & Amsterdam, from which the so-called “shoe” & “underwear” bombers respectively departed.
  • Bergen, NJ residents saw five people on a white van filming the attacks and visibly celebrating. They had set up their cameras before the first plane hit. Police arrested them. All were Israelis. Bomb-sniffing dogs reacted as if they had detected explosives, although officers were unable to find anything. The FBI seized the van for further testing.
  • All 5 were later released at the instigation of Israeli & American Jewish leaders, some in the US Government. Details are still classified.

A second van was stopped on the approaches to the George Washington Bridge. As CBS’s Dan Rather said in his live report:

“Two suspects are in FBI custody after a truckload of explosives were discovered around the George Washington Bridge. That bridge links New York to New Jersey over the Hudson River. Whether the discovery of those explosives had anything to do with other events today is unclear, but the FBI, has two suspects in hand, said the truckload of explosives, enough explosives were in the truck to do great damage to the George Washington Bridge…“

Those suspects and the incident then seem to have disappeared from the record.

  • NORAD (North American Air Defense command) and its fighters were conspicuously tardy. They should have intercepted the 4 aircraft within minutes but did not do so, due to a linked series of failures to (1) get timely FAA reports of the deviating aircraft, (2) scramble fighters from the closest bases, (3) intercept at maximum speed, and (4) redeploy already airborne fighters to do the intercepts.
  • Several PNAC alums and their counterparts were in positions to affect that outcome.

And as for the 9/11 Commission…

  • A fatally flawed commission, not least because of its pro-Israel staffing.
  • Many implausible details were accepted or allowed to stand without comment, such as the delivery by a well-dressed man of an intact passport to a detective at the base of the Twin Towers – a passport used to identify one of the named hijackers, that somehow survived the plane’s impact, the ensuing explosion and fire, and an 800-foot fall unaffected by wind.
  • The 9/11 Commission’s Executive Director Philip D. Zelikow evidently ensured that nothing deflecting attention from the 19 named Arabs, or toward Israel, would make the final report, whose reading defies belief.
  • He also told an audience at the University of Virginia on September 10, 2002 that the real reason for his urging war with Iraq regardless of 9/11 was “the threat against Israel.” His concerns and loyalties are at least consistent.

So just what is the US supporting?

  • History, policy, and governmental actions tell only part of the story, of course.
  • The attitudes and values prevalent in Israel are also important, and almost unknown in the US.
  • Here are some of both that speak volumes.

Attack on Gaza: Israel’s Way of War

  • The Israeli assault on Gaza in December 2008 – January 2009 is a classic case in ruthlessness applied to a densely populated urban area. In the operation, some 1,400 Palestinians were killed – nearly a third of whom were women and children who had no conceivable military role – and approximately 5,400 more were wounded.
  • Israel denied any excesses or significant casualties among noncombatants. The evidence says otherwise.
  • Differing estimates are presented here from: (1) B’Tselem, an Israeli Human Rights organization; (2) its Palestinian counterpart; and  (3) the official Israeli military estimate.

You will note that the Palestinian organization has a lower figure of combatants killed than the other two, but is still very close to that of B’Tselem. Both consider police officers to be different from combatants, while the Israeli military makes no such distinction. Also the two Human Rights groups have nearly identical counts of women and children killed, while the Israeli military minimizes those losses, perhaps considering families of dead police officers to be militants, too.

The first Israeli attacks

Israel opened its attack on Gaza with simultaneous strikes on numerous Palestinian police stations, including the graduating class of a Palestinian police academy. Nearly a third of the so-called “militants” killed were police officers and young cadets. I was reminded of my own graduation from Marine boot camp, standing there in my new uniform with my family and friends across the parade ground. It was a time of celebration. But in Gaza, the Israeli strike force – mostly American-made, with American munitions – came, and left this carnage. Had I survived something like this at my Marine Corps graduation, I would want the perpetrators (to quote Rahm Emanuel) dead, dead, dead…

Then there were the “militants” who disguised themselves as children….

....compounded by the widespread use by Israel of white phosphorus and cluster bombs (both provided by the US) in a densely populated urban area, the former a war crime – and therefore its Israeli perpetrators war criminals. The image on the left below is a UN school under attack; the other is a woman whose husband and baby daughter were killed by the white phosphorus shells that burned her. A Jerusalem Tribunal seems to be in order… 

And we wonder why they, and so many others, hate the US

Every international tribunal and agency that investigates Israel and Palestine, including one headed by a Jewish judge from South Africa, has strongly condemned Israel for this onslaught, among many others. Joining the condemnation are many traditional US allies. This, too, few Americans understand. But the US Government continues to exercise its veto in the UN Security Council to protect Israel from any international sanctions. On February 18, 2011, the US used its veto against all 14 other members. This happens often. In recent years, the US has used its veto power more than the other 4 permanent members combined – almost always on behalf of Israel.

An article of faith

A key issue is the extent to which an orthodox or ultra-orthodox version of Judaism permeates an otherwise largely secular Israeli society. The former Israel Defense Forces’ chief rabbi, Brig. Gen. Avichai Rontzki, told students in a pre-army yeshiva program in 2009 that soldiers who “show mercy” toward the enemy in wartime will be “damned”. His views were controversial, but he was NOT repudiated by the Israeli government, and he completed his full 4-year term. His replacement is somewhat less extreme, but Rontzki’s views are still popular in Israel, especially with Jewish settlers and the ultra-orthodox.

So this is faith? (An Israeli girl inscribes her own message of hate) 

One of the most extreme examples to emerge is a controversial book called The King’s Torah, written by two settler rabbis. One chilling edict is that: The prohibition ‘Thou Shalt Not Murder’ applies only “to a Jew who kills a Jew,” write Rabbis Yitzhak Shapira and Yosef Elitzur of the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar. Non-Jews are “uncompassionate by nature” and attacks on them “curb their evil inclination,” while babies and children of Israel’s enemies may be killed since “it is clear that they will grow to harm us.” Many in Israel condemned it. Many also supported it. Most Americans heard nothing about it. Guess why…

Then there is the Wall…

One of the great ironies is that two decades after the Berlin Wall fell, Israel has been constructing an “Apartheid Wall” around and within occupied Palestine, to protect Jewish settlers and contain Palestinian resistance. It has been noted that The most obvious historical parallel to the barrier is the Berlin Wall, which was 96 miles long…. Israel’s barrier, still under construction, is expected to reach at least 403 miles in length… The average height of the Berlin Wall was 11.8 feet….compared with the maximum current height of Israel’s Wall — 25 feet… four times as long and in places twice as high as the Berlin Wall. For the US, what was bad in Europe is fine in Palestine, if Israel wants it.  

…And the Jewish Settlers

  There are perhaps a half-million Jewish settlers, many from the US & Russia, in Palestine. Not all are religious fanatics, racist or violent. But the most extreme ultra-orthodox beliefs, blatant racism and an affinity for violence have fertile ground in the settlements, all of them on Palestinian lands illegally, except, of course, to Israel and the US Government. Their influence in Israel is significant and rising, the tip of an Israeli society that is far more racist, militarist and intolerant than South Africa during apartheid – a point many black South Africans have made repeatedly, but which somehow is never considered “newsworthy” by the mainstream media (MSM) in the US.

And as if that were not enough, here is the Israel we support and enable

Israeli expansion of settlements continues in East Jerusalem and the West Bank. Their usual practice is for armed police to enter a Palestinian area at night and evict the residents, then bring in Jewish settlers and protect them. This is what happened to the woman in the picture and her family, losing a home of nearly a half-century. She and friends returned the next day to try to salvage something from the ruin of their life. This is what she met; the picture was taken by a friend. Lovely, right? This is what the US protects with its pledges of eternal support for Israel… The face of an Israel it dares not let Americans see.

So why do most Americans know nothing about these things?

  • Accurate portrayals and graphics that leave no doubt about what Israel has done, to the US and to others, are rarely seen in the US.
  • The US Government generally, like the 9/11 Commission itself, studiously avoided any evidence pointing to Israeli involvement.
  • Few in Washington, D.C.– any branch, either party or independents, elected or appointed — dare stand up & criticize Israel for anything.

And just WHO is in charge here?

 Few Americans therefore even suspect what much of the world knows: Israel, through the ownership of the mainstream media (MSM) and the leverage exercised by a hydra-headed pro-Israel lobby, effectively controls the US Government, especially the Congress. Indeed, the Congress has for decades accurately been described as “Israeli occupied territory.” This is particularly true of candidates for the Presidency. No one today can be a serious contender for President from either major party without what have become obligatory pledges of fealty to Israel and laudatory appearances before major Jewish audiences. But I remember when that was not so, and when our President was expected to serve US & not Israeli interests… 

The same holds for the Administration, no matter which party is in power

Almost all of the key US officials dealing with the Middle East were and are Jewish, many with dual citizenship. (The “neo-conservatives” began as Jewish Democrats dissatisfied with President Carter, but now include some who are not Jewish.) Those who are not are strongly pro-Israel, a virtual condition of their appointment, confirmation and support by a Congress whose members compete for Israeli approval – or keep silent Ha’aretz, an Israeli newspaper, remarked in late 2009 that “Every appointee to the American government must endure a thorough background check by the American Jewish community.“No surprise to Israelis, nor to anyone in the US policy community, but a great surprise to most Americans – if they ever heard or read about it. Anyone in the US pointing this out, or even criticizing Israel in any way, is immediately assailed as an anti-Semite or (if Jewish) a self-hating Jew, no matter how ridiculous the charges might be in reality. This is not surprising. Israel’s politicians and supporters have no choice. Like lawyers who find themselves defending a hopelessly guilty client with both law and evidence against them, they pound the table and hurl vile accusations, hoping to quiet the accusers. But it is important to understand that the current concept of anti-Semitism has nothing to do with bigotry towards Jews or Judaism. Indeed, the entire debate over Israel is not one of “Jew versus anti-Semite” as Israel’s supporters would have everyone else believe. It is one of Zionists (supporters of Israel, not all of them Jewish) versus Israel’s critics, a growing number of whom are themselves Jewish, including some Israelis. What “anti-Semitism” means now is any criticism of Israel, or its foreign or domestic policies and actions, or its treatment of Palestinians, or of any individual in the US or elsewhere who supports Israel. The “new” charge of anti-Semitism is therefore intended to shield Israel in the face of activities that, to Israel & its supporters, are “existential threats” to “delegitimize” it, and not an elementary quest for justice and peace, which to most Israelis means only their hegemony.

So what is this about the Zionist control of the US mainstream media (MSM)?

Information is power, and the overwhelmingly Zionist-owned MSM makes sure that Americans see, hear and read what Israel wants them to do. This, plus the enormous financial leverage provided by a brigade of Jewish political action committees (PACs) in the US, gives them effective control of both public opinion and the US Government.

This is what it looked like in 2001-2002…

Mainstream Media 2001-2002

 CEOs and Directors of companies can change as often as Boards of Directors vote. But if we could “freeze frame” the CEOs of the largest U.S. Media companies in mid 2002, covering the aftermath of 9/11, the attack on Afghanistan and the lead-in to the war in Iraq, we would find that ten outspoken Zionists ran the vast majority of U.S. television networks and other media companies including movies, radio, and publishing at that time. Note that all except Rupert Murdoch are Americans and Jewish; Murdoch is an Australian, apparently with one Jewish grandparent, but a fervent & influential Zionist nonetheless.

….Zionist control has visibly increased today: Media conglomerates owned or led by Zionists in 2011 control:

  • •All of the major networks (ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX, NBC).
  • •All of the major national newspapers (New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, USA Today).
  • •All three weekly news magazines (Time, Newsweek, US News & World Report).
  • •All major political journals (Nation, National Review, New Republic, Weekly Standard).
  • •Most of the major film studios in Hollywood and New York City.
  • •Most of the major publishing houses.
  • •Many ISPs (internet service providers).

The silence of the media on WTC7 and so many of the anomalies associated with 9/11 is deafening. The natural tendency of the media is to investigate any alleged governmental misdeeds with relish, seeing therein prestige and profits.That the media did NOT do that with 9/11, and has generally either ignored or disparaged other efforts to do so, is because its ownership and management knew, suspected or feared that any evidentiary trail would lead directly or indirectly to Israel and its US support base.

And lobbies, lobbies everywhere…

  • Israel has so many PACs and supporting groups that it has a “Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations” to coordinate the activities of its current list of 51 members.
  • AIPAC (the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee) which focuses on the US Government (especially the Congress), is just one of those 51 members, although arguably the most potent because of its focus on Washington.
  • The Israeli Government sponsored ICIC Hasbara (public diplomacy) offers a wide range of services.
  • The Hasbara Fellowships program extends this to campuses.
  • “StandWithUs” continues this, with a strong pro-settler spin.
  • The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) assails any effort to hold Israel accountable for its actions, seeing “anti-Semites” (their own witches, perhaps?) everywhere.
  • Campus Watch
  • Jihad Watch
  • UN Watch
  • Plus a host of funded “policy” and “research” centers, often at otherwise legitimate Institutes and study centers, in Washington and elsewhere, catering to both liberals and conservatives of any and all political persuasions

Epilogue: Costs & Consequences

 The price the US pays…

For the joy and satisfaction of providing unlimited and unquestioning support of Israel, we have had a national tragedy (9/11); have waged two needless wars (Afghanistan & Iraq); and are being goaded into a third equallyneedless war against Iran (with Syria to follow) by the same people who brought us the others. As of 2/2011, these wars have cost the US some $1.2 trillion, exclusive of the losses at the WTC and the assistance we have provided Israel. Our casualties to date are approximately 67,000 killed and wounded. Both figures will rise sharply following an attack on Iran. And there is the erosion of our freedom under the misbegotten “Patriot Act” and its offspring…

And what we have done to others

  • Our price does not include all of the death & suffering & destruction we have caused at Israel’s instigation.
  • We have shattered two countries already, and aside from the internal damage to them, there are literally millions of dead, wounded & dispossessed refugees in Afghanistan & Iraq, more of them in Pakistan, and of course the long-suffering Palestinians.

Where we go…

  • Depends on what kind of a legacy we wish to leave to our grandchildren and to posterity:
  • The US can be a protector, enabler and ally of first and last resort to an Israel few would support if they truly knew what is was and did, spending our lives and treasure in support of its ambitions; or
  • The American people can realize that they have been misled & betrayed from within and without, take back their government, and treat Israel as the rogue it is – a criminal state we have fostered.

Black-Op SEALS Won’t Be Talking Now

31 American military personnel were killed when the Boeing Chinook helicopter in which they were flying crashed in Afghanistan.

Of the thirty-one killed, twenty were members of SEAL Team 6.

More importantly, I’ve been reliably informed (by a retired Colonel, US Army intel) that these very same operatives were the men who allegedly killed Usama bin Laden recently in Abbottabad.  [NB: Seal Team 6 is an ultra-elite group of “black” operatives who exist outside military protocol, engage in operations that are at the highest level of classification, and often outside the bounds of international law.]

The official story is that the Taliban shot down the chopper. I have my doubts (as do many others far more savvy than yours truly).

[Remember Pat Tillman, the Pro Football star who forsook a megabuck contract and volunteered to go fight in Afghanistan in the heat of the post-9/11 patriotic frenzy? The official story is that Tillman was killed in a friendly-fire incident. According to reports from several US military personnel (a few of whom I know), Pat Tillman was assassinated by his own government. Reportedly, Tillman, the quintessential poster-boy for military recruitment, was waking up to the 9/11 lie, and was beginning to get a little too loose-lipped for his own good. Word traveled up the chain fast. Three bullets to the head fired at close range killed him. Friendly-fire indeed.]

“We are never deceived; we deceive ourselves.” – Goethe

Usama’s “recent death” brings to mind photos that made international headlines during the Iraq invasion.

Remember that iconic image of cheering Iraqis helping bring down the statue of Saddam? A Marine I know told me he had a friend who was actually there, on the ground, in that town square. Evidently, there were no more than 50 Iraqis in that “cheering crowd” — and virtually all of them were paid to participate in the photo shoot. [Did you happen to notice there was only one tightly cropped shot from just one camera angle? The rest of the square was virtually empty, save for US military personnel and equipment.]

Then there was that other classic shot, of a bearded and bedraggled Saddam crawling out of a hole with his hands pathetically held up in the air in a gesture of utter defeat. Remember that one?

Again, rigged. I’m personally acquainted with a former Marine who knows one of the guys who actually helped stage that sordid affair.

Truth is, Saddam was finally cornered in the home of one of his friends, and he fought valiantly to the last bullet. He was eventually nabbed, mussed up further (he apparently didn’t look great to begin), physically forced into the hole, and dirt thrown on him for good measure to ensure a Hollywood-grade image. That photo’s singular intent was to demoralize the Iraqi populace by showing their leader cowering in abject defeat.

Usama bin Laden’s REAL Death

It is generally known by military insiders (and others who look to alternative sources for their news) that Usama bin Laden died of natural causes in 2001. He had just returned to Pakistan from Dubai following medical treatment at the American Hospital.

As early as March, 2000, Asia Week expressed concern for bin Laden’s health, describing a serious medical problem that could put his life in danger because of “a kidney infection that is propagating itself to the liver and requires specialized treatment.”

Having taken off from Quetta in Pakistan, bin Laden arrived in Dubai and was transferred to the American Hospital. He was accompanied by his personal physician and a ‘faithful lieutenant’ (possibly al-Zawahiri). Usama was admitted to the well-respected urology department run by Dr. Terry Callaway, an American gallstone and infertility specialist.

Bin Laden was checked into one of the hospital’s VIP suites. While there, he received visits from many members of his family as well as prominent Saudis and Emiratis. During the hospital stay, the local CIA agent, known to many in Dubai, was seen taking the main elevator of the hospital to bin Laden’s floor.

A few days later, the CIA man bragged to a few friends about having visited bin Laden. Reliable sources report that on July 15th, the day after bin Laden returned to Quetta, the CIA agent was recalled to headquarters.  [NB: Contacts between the CIA and bin Laden began in 1979 when, as a representative of his family’s business, he began recruiting volunteers for the Afghan resistance against the Soviet Red Army.]

The LAST ‘Death’ of bin Laden

What the world has been told about the recent “Death of Usama bin Laden” is pitiful and laughably absurd (especially the parts about no forensic tests having been performed, and the body quickly dumped into the sea. That last doctored photo was the clincher).

Truth is, bin Laden’s bin dead a long time.

The charade in Abbottabad was one massive a psyop to provide soothing peace of mind for the American public subject to full-throttle media propaganda, while continuing, unabatedly, one of the greatest, deadliest, and most expensive hoaxes of all time: 9/11 and “The War on Terror.”

And now, every single SEAL Team 6 member who was involved in the ‘assassination’ psyop is dead.

Incidentally, I had to smile when I saw one particularly amusing headline re Usama’s latest death, in the US publication Business Insider: “Meet The ‘Seal Team 6’, The Bad-Asses Who Killed Osama Bin Laden”

Well, all those hapless ‘bad asses’ are now dead.

And dead men don’t talk.


Glenn Beck and John Hagee: False Prophets Profit Racist Israel

Beck's fake tears

BECK, HAGEE: FALSE PROPHETS FOR ISRAEL

By Rev. Ted Pike
25 July 11

The Guardian reports that during a dinner with British Prime Minister Tony Blair in 2002 Rupert Murdoch said “he didn’t see what the Palestinian’s problem was.” Yet his son James (now head of Murdoch’s News Corp.) replied it was because “they were kicked out of their f—ing homes and had nowhere to f—ing live.”

James Murdoch’s speech reveals a spiritually darkened soul. Yet his mind was capable of clearly understanding the thorn that has made the Mideast bleed: the 1948 expulsion by Israel of 800,000 Palestinians into concentration camps.

Last week 5,000 evangelicals gathered in Washington D.C. at the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) conference to agree with televised Prime Minister Netanyahu who said, “When you support Israel, you don’t have to choose between your interests and your values; you get both.” He encouraged the attendees to think of Israel as “indistinguishable” from America. Also, Haaretz says:

“News commentator Glenn Beck worked the audience into a frenzy, decrying the historical persecution of Jews, insisting that Israel cannot cede control over territories it controls, and calling upon the conference attendees to declare that they, too, are Jewish… Beck repeated a refrain that Netanyahu had introduced earlier, appealing to audience members to self-identify as Israelis and Jews themselves. He exhorted, “When we see Israelis not as part of us, but as us, we can move to the next level as human beings,” adding, “Let us declare ‘I am a Jew,’ they cannot kill all of us.”

What these two demagogues are really recommending is that millions of evangelicals, restricted both genetically and theologically from ever becoming fully Jewish, give themselves mind, soul and body to total identification with and support and unconditional approval of Israel.

Prior to the CUFI conference, Beck said, “[Christian Israel supporters] see tragedy coming down the pike unless we take a stand…Many of us were asleep for a long time…We are waking up to what could be on the horizon: . . .the vaporization of Israel and the end of the Western way of life as we know it,”…Beck said the way to prevent such a tragedy was to stand together, be righteous and decent and protect one another.”  (These may be values Israel attempts to implement to fellow Jews but emphatically do not apply to Palestinians.)

Beck also said that it’s time to “get the Christian community in America to wake up and start standing up [for Israel].” Again, there is a problem: Israel stands by its sordid record of human rights abuses unapologetically, especially against the people of Gaza today. How can evangelicals support a nation perpetuating injustice? It can’t be done by asserting that it has been God’s will to imprison millions of Palestinian refugees for more than half a century under inhumane conditions of human rights deprivation, boycott and outright murder.

Instead, Israel-first evangelicals, following Beck and Hagee, opt to express their support for the pariah state through emotional extravaganzas and simplistic, pseudo-Biblical rhetoric that flatters Israel. Several attendees at the CUFI conference are quoted as affirming the following, which they believe are solid biblical grounds for unquestioning support of Israel.

  • God promises to bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse (criticize) Israel.
  • God promises to the Jews rights to own and occupy Israel unconditionally forever.
  • Israel does no wrong worthy of criticism. Even if a few Israelis did bad things, no sin of any magnitude can change their status as God’s chosen, “the apple of His eye.”

Such pablum is repeated by Hagee, Beck and their pro-Zionist followers as if it were biblical law. Hagee: “The truth is not what you think it is – it’s what the Bible says.” In reality, such evangelical, Zionist Bible-thumping is only righteous-sounding, Zionist propaganda. Unable to counter criticism of Israel rationally, Israelophiles have just one recourse: to go on the flattery offensive, further corrupting Israel. This is what Beck plans for late August when evangelicals worldwide will participate via satellite in his “Restoring Courage” conference in Jerusalem. “He said the event would be attended by 30 American political figures, 70 international politicians and citizen delegations from 100 countries around the world. . .” Already scheduled are 700 evangelical viewing parties of the gala event.

This will be a gathering of false prophets and their devotees, much like the 850 false prophets in ancient Israel who gathered on Mount Carmel against Elijah (I Kings 18:19). Those desired to establish their defiant premise that the nation could reject Jehovah (Jesus) and worship Baal and yet dwell in the land under divine blessing. Little has changed today as Beck, Hagee, and Israel persist in their claim that nearly six million Israelis can dwell in Palestine in rejection of Christ.

Yet the Jehovah-rejecting northern tribes found out differently. In 722 B.C., God enforced His terms of “no obedience, no occupation.” The entire northern kingdom went into captivity under the Assyrians and eventually was blown into oblivion across the arid Mideast sands.  Scripture says a similar fate will befall disobedient Israel today when a new “Assyrian,” the Anti-Christ, expels false Israel (Is. 10:5). God will rain judgment on the Great Harlot, Babylon, and her false prophets, who, like Beck and Hagee, prophesy peace to a nation which should be scouring its conscience with self-doubt and remorse, leading to repentance. “There is no peace, says the Lord unto the wicked.” (Is. 48:22) (See, “Babylon the Great’ is Israel“)

Is constructive criticism of Israel really cursing God’s chosen people? Is it really anti-Semitism?  Scripture says, “The wounds of a friend are faithful.” If Beck and Hagee were really the friends of Israel, they would be hosting an international conference not to flatter Israel but to encourage the Jewish state to end the free speech restrictions and persecutions of Christians and Palestinians which cause Israel to be increasingly despised by the world.

Instead, millions of evangelicals this summer will further corrupt Israel by flattery, only strengthening her and PR surrogate ADL/B’nai B’rith to create hate laws. Such laws increasingly plague the very Christians who believe Israel can do no wrong.

Since I began to publicly speak out concerning the Zionist threat in 1984, I have yet to receive an intelligent and systematic rebuttal from any evangelical. Instead, the truth I present is usually responded to by very short bursts of defamation of me as “anti-Semitic.” Any system of thought that cannot rationally defend itself but must habitually respond with emotion or defamation is condemned to a relatively brief life in the history of ideas. That is, unless it is artificially kept alive by massive media or cultural empowerment. Such, unfortunately, is the advantage of Israel and its evangelical sycophants, whose fanaticism and vast numbers continue to help outrace oblivion.

Unprepared by reason or true Scriptural authority to respond to massive worldwide criticism of Israel, evangelicals have floundered on the defensive in the last several years. Yet, Beck and Hagee, working intensely to revive pro-Israel ardor in the days ahead, could help create a tidal wave of unprecedented pro-Israel zeal, taking many evangelicals to a new level of spiritual adultery with the Great Harlot.
