Dahlia Wasfi: America Under Israeli Occupation

Dahlia Wasfi explains in very clear, easy to understand terms, who controls the US’s Middle East policy, how, and for what reason. Of course, the depth of corruption and control are much deeper, but understanding these basic issues should be enough to anger and invigorate those just coming to the realization that they lie to us brazenly and without end.

Ariel Sharon: “We, the Jewish People, Control America, and The Americans Know it“!

Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA)dvisory board includes such notable figures as Michael Ledeen, Richard Perle, and R. James Woolsey, while Vice President Dick Cheney, former U.S. Representative to the United Nations John Bolton, and former Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith were all on JINSA’s Board of Advisors before they entered the Bush administration

Jason Vest, writing in The Nation,alleges that JINSA, along with Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy, are “underwritten by far-right American Zionists” and both believe strongly that “‘regime change’ by any means necessary in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian Authority is an urgent imperative.”

How is it acceptable to any American citizen that high level members of Israel’s Likud party (under Netty Yahoo) are allowed to come here  (dual citizens, all) and become high level members of the Bush Administration… carrying out the very same plan of Middle Eastern takeover they drafter in Israel? Is it ok with America that we have been taken of our loved one’s lives, our reputation, and ALL THE MONEY???

What Nutty Yahoo Really Meant and What He Should Have Said


That was what the nutbag really meant, but Greg Bacon at Goon Squad shows us what the maniac SHOULD have said:

“Today, my fellow members, I come to you with a heavy heart and broken soul, to ask for your forgiveness.

Since Israel was illegally created by a bribed and intimidated UN back in 1947, the Khazars and Commie Russian thugs that have moved into Palestine and stolen large chunks of the indigenous Palestinians land thru force; deception, thuggery and outright murder, all in an insane dream called Eretz Israel.

To that end of making an Israel that would stretch from the River Nile to the River Euphrates, Israel and it’s fellow Zionist travelers, along with sold-out politicians in the USA, Britain, France and Germany have been sowing misery, death and destroying around the world, then getting our Zionist owned MSM to blame our bloody acts on Muslims, vilifying Islam.

From our craven, sneaky unprovoked attack on the USS Liberty in our 1967 War of Aggression, to the FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB of 9/11, it was Israel behind those acts of treachery, that we then blamed on Islamic nations, like Iraq, so we could have our pit bull, the USA, go into those nations we castigated and have them destroyed,all to benefit Israel and Israel alone.

We stand guilty of a multitude of crimes, like wrecking the world’s economy after our 9/11 attacks against the USA. We had our Zionist friends at the Federal Reserve and those ‘Too Big to Fail’ Wall Street banks loot, pillage and plunder trillions of dollars from the world’s economy, because we knew that most Americans would be too damn scared of our fiction, al Qaeda, to notice that slippery set of fingers stealing their life savings.

We also stand guilty of numerous crimes against humanity, especially against the Palestinians in Gaza, were we have been operating the world’s largest concentration camp.

Another of our convenient scams is making people think 6 million Jews were killed by Germany during WWII, when anyone who investigates this matter can easily see it was the world’s biggest scam, designed to engender sympathy and money, lots and lots of money, to help Israel have a non-stop supply of wealth from other nations.

The list of our crimes against the world would fill a book, so I will conclude my ‘Mea Culpa’ by asking the world’s forgiveness and vow to NEVER AGAIN let this happen and to ensure we don’t remain the #1 threat to world peace, I am ordering that all our nuclear weapons be neutralized and that the enriched uranium and plutonium be delivered to Russia and the USA.

I am also ordering the dismantling of AIPAC, so that organization will stop running the USA and buying politicians.

I also ask that the International Criminal Court begin and immediate of our crimes, and to lock me and my cabinet members away, awaiting trial.

Thank you”

Maybe Not So Far Fetched

 

Gallup Poll: Rural Whites Prefer Ahmadinejad To Obama

h/t The Onion

CHARLESTON, WV—According to the results of a Gallup poll released Monday, the overwhelming majority of rural white Americans said they would rather vote for Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than U.S. president Barack Obama. “I like him better,” said West Virginia resident Dale Swiderski, who, along with 77 percent of rural Caucasian voters, confirmed he would much rather go to a baseball game or have a beer with Ahmadinejad, a man who has repeatedly denied the Holocaust and has had numerous political prisoners executed, than spend time with Obama. “He takes national defense seriously, and he’d never let some gay protesters tell him how to run his country like Obama does.” According to the same Gallup poll, 60 percent of rural whites said they at least respected that Ahmadinejad doesn’t try to hide the fact that he’s Muslim.

B’Man’s Hypocrite Watch: Iran versus Israel and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty


Know the hypocrisy regarding Iran’s agreement/participation in the nuclear non-proliferation treaty and Israel’s downright denials.

Who is the problem here? Iran or Israel?

If you still support the criminal regime in Israel and believe the lies told you regarding Iran, you are part of the problem. The very basic fact contained in this video should be all you need to know regarding who the real problem is in this world (and it sure as hell isn’t Iran). If Israel was genuine, they would sign the same non-proliferation treaty that Iran signed. But not only will they NOT sign it, they stole the technology from us and thumb their noses at anyone who calls them out for their obfuscation and obvious lies.

It Would Be An Honor To Serve My Country, Return With PTSD, Sit On A Mental Health Care Waitlist, Then Kill Myself

 

It Would Be An Honor To Serve My Country, Return With PTSD, Sit On A Mental Health Care Waitlist, Then Kill Myself

By U.S. Army Pfc. Edwin Quinones
August 15, 2012 | ISSUE 48•33

Ever since I was a kid I dreamed of joining the Army. So as soon as I could, I went down to my local recruiter and enlisted, knowing full well that I’d probably be sent to Afghanistan. Now, with my first deployment less than a week away, there’s only one thing on my mind: how incredibly proud I’ll be to fight for my country, experience crippling psychological trauma, wait indefinitely for the proper health care, and then eventually become so depressed and mentally ill that I commit suicide.

It’s what I’ve always known I was born to do.

It’s a matter of principle, really. From a young age I was taught that throughout our history, Americans have had to stand up and fight for the freedoms we enjoy. I always knew that when the time came, I would serve with honor and nobly suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder until my only recourse was to end my own life. So it’s with eager anticipation that I head off to the battlefield to defend, be ignored by, and then—left all alone, with my personal demons closing in—kill myself for the land I love so dearly.

Honestly, it would be my distinct pleasure and privilege to not get the medical help I need for injuries suffered while risking my life for my country.

That’s why we take the oath, isn’t it? To do our jobs with humility and valor, and to come home haunted by visions of our commanding officer, who promised he’d bring everyone back alive, being blown to bits by a cleverly disguised roadside bomb? In my mind it doesn’t matter what unspeakable horrors I witness, I’ll just be grateful for the privilege of having to wait at least six months to see a VA psychologist and in the interim turn toward alcoholism and drug addiction until I decide the only path to relief is putting a bullet in my head.

I know no greater honor than relying on an agency with a backlog of more than half a million claims that can’t get its shit together enough to transfer its paper files to a central computer.

HOO-ah!

I’m reminded of all the patriotic men and women who came before me. Those who had the chance to accidentally breathe Agent Orange in Vietnam and never get a proper diagnosis, only to become estranged from society, spiral downward into homelessness, and eventually freeze to death in an alley alone. And let’s not forget the thousands who nobly returned from Desert Storm with a mysterious illness the Army never fully admitted or identified the cause of, a syndrome resulting in chronic pain that prevented so many from ever being able to hold down a steady job.

Knowing about the care they deserved but didn’t receive fills me with great pride for my country. And it would be a true honor—this soldier’s duty, really—to follow in their footsteps.

But let’s remember that behind every soldier are the loved ones whose sacrifices are no less important. You’d better believe I’m looking forward to coming back from war and having to drink a fifth of Jack Daniel’s every night just to fall asleep, and even then having nightmares so powerful my wife has to shake me awake. Lying in bed racked with anxiety, she’ll no doubt see her husband as a hero whose untreated illness puts her at constant risk of being physically harmed.

And to see the look on my child’s face as he watches his own father, fresh off the battlefield, crying in a fetal position in the corner of his living room because he can’t get the help he needs, even though he’s been calling doctors for three straight months—tell me, is there any feeling greater than that? I don’t think there is.

So when I finally can’t take it any longer and decide to check into a hotel to end my own life, please know that I have but one simple request: My agonizing struggle and tragically preventable death should be the last thing on anyone’s mind. Because the only thing that’s important for someone like me, who will be dedicating his life to serving his country, is that my government lets me waste away until I become a shell of my former self.

That’s what being an American soldier is all about.

The Other Side of the Sanctions

 

The Other Side of the Sanctions

 

 

Iran has been pushed into a corner and is fighting for its life. The safest weapon in its arsenal is an economic strategy; and it is the one point where the United States is vulnerable.

There is no doubt about it. Section 1245 of the National Defense Authorization Act that was signed into law by President Obama on December 31, 2011 is having the intended effect upon Iran.

Unlike previous sanctions, Section 1245 attacks the foundation of the Iranian economy. The provisions of the law seek to stop the sale of crude oil and to block transactions between the Iranian central bank and the rest of the world. About fifty percent of the national budget is funded from the sale of exported crude oil that provides eighty percent of the foreign exchange.  “Crude (oil) sales are a trap which we inherited from the years before the (1979 Islamic) Revolution,” Khamenei told a gathering of researchers and scientists at the end of July.

An immediate consequence of the legislation has been the plunge in the exchange rate of the Iranian Rial that has lost half its value against the U.S. dollar. A combination of devalued currency and a break down in international bank transfers has created shortages of imported products, including basic food grains. The result is seen in an official inflation rate of 25 percent and an unemployment rate of 12.3 percent.

Before the implementation of the sanctions, Iranian oil exports were the second largest in OPEC at 2.2 million barrels per day.  Today, the current level is around 1.1 million barrels, but that does not take into account the oil leakage through the sanction barriers. A friendly government in Baghdad makes Iraq one of the easier routes to the world market. Shipments of gold bullion through Turkey to Iran indicate that the Iranians are selling to someone.

After nearly thirty years of dealing with American sanctions, the Iranians have developed methods of evading some of the restrictions, but the current application goes far beyond anything faced earlier. The National Iranian Oil Company has been forced to relinquish its monopoly of sales and authorized private traders to market the crude. The Oil Products Exporters Union expects to manage a fifth of exports and claims to have completed arrangements with refiners in Europe.

In spite of the evasive measures that are being employed, The Iranian treasury is still losing about thirty billion dollars per annum, a decline from seventy-two billion in 2011. Beyond that, reduced exports are causing a problem of what to do with the surplus.  On shore facilities have been filled. Seven million barrels are being held at Sidi Kerir in Egypt.

That leaves the tankers as the only other storage choice. Half the Iran tanker fleet of forty-seven ships is already sitting at anchor with tanks full and no place to go.

The less attractive possibility is for the National Iranian Oil Company to continue shutting down wells. Already, production has declined from 3.5 to 3.3 million barrels per day.

Once they are shut down and the pressurizing of the aging neglected wells stopped, salt water seepage will make it costly and difficult to reactivate them.  When they are reopened, production is likely to be reduced.  This is the long term damage that the sanctions will have upon the economy.

How long can they endure the losses?  That is the question that the Ayatollah has to be asking.

So far, there are no signs that people are starving from food shortages, and there is no indication that people are taking their grievances into the streets.  Regardless, Tehran cannot ignore the long term damage to the economy and the potential for social disorder.

Right now, the bombs are not falling.  Sooner or later, though, the risk of war must be resolved.  They cannot ignore that Section 1245 is a declaration of war; and must be treated accordingly.  The Ayatollah has said, “Threat for threat.”

Ayatollah Khamenei compares the present situation of Iran to Mohammed and his early followers who were besieged for three years in the desert of Saudi Arabia.  When there seemed to be no hope, they struck the surrounding superior army and defeated it at Badr and Kheybar.

He sees Iran is also surrounded by an enemy.  They are being confronted by two carrier battle groups with a formidable destructive capacity that Iran cannot hope to stop or to match; the repeated threats from politicians in the United States and Israel to attack Iranian nuclear facilities; the newest sanctions that are slowly strangling the economy; and Khamenei believes that it is all for the sole purpose of regime change.

That raises the question.  How does a minor military power contend with the forces available to the United States?  The leaders in Tehran talk about closing the Straits of Hormuz and developing new missiles.  It is all bravado that Khamenei hopes will calm anxieties at home and frighten potential aggressors.

Over the three decades of the Islamic Republic, the Iranians have been careful about pushing Washington to the point that it would retaliate militarily.  The Ayatollah is not going to provoke the U.S. to destroy the theocratic regime and his political career.

“….to defend ourselves we will attack on the same level as the enemies attack us,” Khamenei said on television in March.  Section 1245 is economic warfare.  That is most likely to be the battlefield that Khamenei will choose and it fits perfectly into the strategies employed over the centuries by the persecuted Shia minority

Where is the United States vulnerable economically?  It is the draconian character of the sanctions.

At the end of June, Washington did what was expected.  All twenty of Iran’s regular buyers were granted six month wavers that will push the next decision beyond the November election.  To have found any of the twenty governments to be in violation of the sanction restrictions would have compelled Washington to deny access to the U.S. financial system.  That would have Sparked an economic war with countries taking sides in support or in opposition to the United States.

It is no secret that many governments object to the sanctions and are willing to deal outside of normal channels for a reduced price.  If the Iranians should use the new private traders to dump a few million barrels of oil onto the market at a sharply discounted price, they just might encourage one of these governments to openly defy the United States for a bargain.  Should the United States imposes restrictions upon the offender, that could trigger an unwanted trade war,  while ignoring the challenge would render the sanctions meaningless and invite everyone else to go bargain hunting.

As a persecuted minority, the Shia have learned that the weaker in a conflict must employ cunning rather than muscle,. The philosophy is the core principle of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard that focuses upon the use of asymmetric warfare.  Employing economic tactics is just another form of the asymmetric warfare.

It is the inherent weakness of the alliance that is Iran’s strength. The unwillingness of Washington to pressure supposed allies and the simple fact that there are buyers willing to defy the sanctions secretly reveals the cracks in the system. If the Iranians can break through the weak point in the American siege, they will be able to repeat without firing a shot the triumph of Badr and Kheybar.

Support Your Local Terrorist Government

This graphic says it all:

How many of you can honestly argue that our government is not terrorists?

Of course it is so much bigger than Iran. The Empire’s lust for Iran is really as much of a side issue as anything else. The real enemies in our sights are much bigger and badder.

Even out former elected officials are saying such (according to Washington’s Blog). Lt. Gen William Odom said:

Because the United States itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics, the slogans of today’s war on terrorism merely makes the United States look hypocritical to the rest of the world.

To have any American insist that we are not an Empire or that we are justified in what we do because we are America (or whatever insane idea you might have), if you simply put the shoe on the other foot, you will quickly notice how hypocritical that notion is. We would never allow anyone to tell us what to do and how to act (except when it comes to the bidding of Israel). It is worldwide and don’t think for a second that our neighbors won’t be getting some soon.

Steve Lendman explains that Chavez is next on our side of the world:

Just read thru the list of accusations that America has sided Venezuela with and I challenge you to see if these accusations are really us looking at a mirror. The fact is that no matter how much the MSM and the criminals in charge of our politics tell us how bad Chavez and Venezuela is, the truth is that America is the world’s only real threat. We would do good to emulate what Venezuelans have done over the past decade.

In highlighting Venezuela’s Constitution, Steve lets us know what the agenda for that true, democratic country (as opposed to the Fascist state we live in) is. Maybe we should change ours, since the criminals have now made it basically null and void. we could start with their preamble:

Its Preamble “establish(ed) a democratic, participatory and self-reliant, multiethnic and multicultural society in a just, federal and decentralized State that embodies the values of freedom, independence, peace, solidarity, the common good, the nation’s territorial integrity, comity and the rule of law for this and future generations.”

It also “guarantees the right to life, work, learning, education, social justice and equality, without discrimination or subordination of any kind; promotes peaceful cooperation among nations and further strengthens Latin American integration in accordance with the principle of nonintervention and national self-determination of the people, the universal and indivisible guarantee of human rights, the democratization of imitational society, nuclear disarmament, ecological balance and environmental resources as the common and inalienable heritage of humanity….”

Sounds to me that Obama (or any of the current criminal elite) could learn something from these people.

Oh Say Can You See, That Americans Are Blinded By Bullshit?

We’ve been told by the maniacs and murderers that the towel heads hate us for our freedoms and want to stop freedom from occurring in America. At least, this is one of many reasons for the American Empire given to the stooges who still believe the bullshit.

OK.

So, who in the world “loves us” for those very same freedoms?

(Crickets chirp as I await that answer)

How many Iraqis do you think love us and our brand of “freedom”? Afghanis? Libyans? Egyptians? Iranians? Chinese? Russians? Others dominated by the “Empire of Freedom” (which includes what turns out to be the entire globe, with just a handful of exceptions, including Israel)?

I used to be patriotic. I used to believe the crap. Then I truly began to pay attention and saw the lie almost immediately. So, why aren’t you paying attention?

For the love of “freedom”

I wonder how many rednecks have stood in line to enjoy the above taint-show personally? Not worried? So, will you submit at the TSA highway stop or the mall crotch search when you are looking for that perfect Christmas gift? Of course you will.

Why?

Only you can put a stop to it.

Noor gives us a good understanding of what American “Freedom” really is at her latest post, “Are You A Slave Of The System?”

Dr Paul Craig Roberts expresses just how lost Americans are on this “hot air day” in his post, “Can Americans Escape Deception?“.

In a single word answer, Dr Roberts…

No.

What You Don’t Know Won’t Hurt You – Will It?

If you still don’t know, you cannot trust a damn thing that your government says or does. Even if they are seeming to do something beneficial, it is generally something they use to their advantage and certainly ends up as no good for us… the ones that pay them. You see, they write stuff that seems to be one thing, but use it in radically different ways. They also use their Ministry of Propaganda to make you believe that they love and care for you, all the while, are watching your every keystroke and are determined to undermine any dissent by insisting they are protecting you from Terrorists (that they arm and make into patsies, since they can’t find any real ones).

This Day – One Day shared another Young Turks video that also coincides with a new End The Lie post where Senators Ron Wyden and Mark Udall are coming out publicly to address the Patriot Act directly to Attorney General Eric Holder.

“Plain Reading Of The Text”

In the letter that they wrote to Holder and was contributed to the public by Charles Savage of the New York Times, they make it plain that there are secret interpretations of laws made that the general public (and even their colleagues) have no idea what is really meant. To a point that they wrote,

there is now a significant gap between what most Americans think the law allows and what the government secretly claims the law allows.”

The argument is that we can’t let the terrorists know what we do, but after the past decade and continuous lies and purposeful thwarting of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, any sane person would have to question their motives. But why is this a problem, the patriotic redneck might ask:

“This is a problem, because it is impossible to have an informed public debate about what the law should say when they public doesn’t know what its government thinks the law says.”

One thing that needs to be understood is that this does not appear to be political R vs D posturing or fighting to sway the public, for both Senators are Democrats addressing and Democratically appointed AG (Holder is Obama’s man). Why would I think that? Because they wrote:

“We would also note that in recent months we have grown increasingly skeptical about the actual value of the ‘intelligence collection operation discussed in the Justice Department’s recent court filing regarding the pending lawsuits. This has come as a surprise to us, as we were initially inclined to take the executive branch’s assertions about the importance of this ‘operation’ at face value.”

Now, I must say that Cenk tells us that the motive is because Obama does things for political motivations. In my estimation, that is partially the reason. I don’t know why Cenk doesn’t go all the way and say the obvious. To me, Obama (or whomever is POTUS at this time of our nation’s history) are intentionally bringing this country down and will implement some sort of global hierarchy in which the Constitution and Bill of Rights are rendered null and void. Hell, this isn’t a stretch to think this, either, if you simply pay attention to the actions that have been taken. As a matter of fact, to simply think this is political posturing or whatever seems the height of ignorance at this point.

I also must say that I do not trust Sen Wyden implicitly, for he has co-sponsored the ‘Sense of the Senate‘ resolution with that Lubavitch Zionist Jew & Israeli dual citizen scumbag war mongering liar, LIEberman, which seems to be calling for all out war against Iran for defying, “its international obligations and engaged in a well-documented pattern of illicit and deceptive activities surrounding its nuclear program“. If Wyden knows something we don’t know about Iran’s nuclear “weapons” then let’s see a letter about that. And speaking of hypocrisy’s finest: let him sponsor (and get his fellow Jew, LIEberman to co-sign) the same type of resolution against Israel, which not only has openly thwarted their, “deceptive activities surrounding its nuclear program“, but also threaten to use them at any and every opportunity they get (while the crickets in the Senate chirp LOUDLY).

You know: the standard Goose and Gander stuff.

USS Enterprise FALSE FLAG WAR with IRAN

Naval exercises and War Games play a role in determining the fate of American forces in various hypothetical scenarios. One such hypothetical scenario was called the ‘2002 Millennium Challenge‘. In this exercise American forces were defeated and in a real conflict would have resulted in the deaths of over 20,000 service personnel from destruction by a massive salvo of cruise missiles that overwhelmed one aircraft carrier, ten cruisers and five of six amphibious ships. In the end the War Game was redrawn / re-scripted and American forces were victorious which meant that “$250 million was wasted” disproving the initial outcome.

Flash forward a few years … It’s now 2007. War with Iran has been on the minds of many a neocon. Even today [2012] you hear the war drums beat for the destruction of Iran by many a democrat and republican. Back in 2007, Michael E. Salla wrote an article and titled it The Neoconservative Agenda to Sacrifice the Fifth Fleet – The New Pearl Harbor. I had posted this article on my now defunct website, Not Another CONspiracy. I was unable to retrieve it through the WayBAck Machine. The link above goes to Information Clearing House. Anyway … bear with me ….

Last week I caught wind that the USS Enterprise (CVN-65) was now going to be deactivated and decommissioned sooner than planned. Previously this was to have happened in 2014 or 2015. Now she will be deactivated on or about December 1 2012. This is strange as the USS Enterprise (CVN-65) in the past few years has seen many modifications and upgrades including refueling the 8 Nuclear Reactors in her hull, at the cost of ‘Billions of Dollars’. See Here & Here for a short list. Both links reside on Defense Industry Daily website.

So why do we spend Billions and as recently as 2010 Millions [$660 million] only to retire the USS Enterprise (CVN-65) early by the end of 2012 ?????

Now comes an interesting area of thought …..

Back in the days of George W. Bush the war drums were about beat to death. Many a leading service man was replaced by others who would continue kowtowing G-Dubya’s wishes. I wrote back in the day of many a naval officer being replaced by some who would bow to G-Dubya. You can read it here via the WayBack Machine Coincidence- More Naval officers fired – Posted 12 May 2008. SO what does that have to do with this ? As mentioned, many a good man was outed or ousted from lucrative naval careers. In that piece linked above 5 naval officers were relieved of duty in a short time span. The given reason: ‘Loss of confidence in their ability to command’.

And now this, the most recent or should I say, the most troubling Naval Officer to be ousted. Owen Paul Honors, Jr., a United States Navy captain who served as commanding officer of the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Enterprise before being controversially relieved of his command due to videos he had made and shown aboard the same vessel while he was serving as executive officer. The videos were broadcast on the carrier in 2006 and 2007. Honors remains in the Navy in an administrative role.

So now we have the commanding officer of the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Enterprise relieved of duty in 2011. Possibly another person who would not agree with what may come in the future.

Have I made any sense thus far hahaha.

So we have naval officers in the past and present relieved of duty. We have an aging aircraft carrier with 8 nuclear reactors to be retired before her due date. We have many a chicken hawk wanting war with Iran. Oh, did I mention, we also now have the USS Enterprise (CVN-65) on her final deployment as of March 11 2012 and she is headed to the U.S. Navy’s 5th and 6th Fleet areas of operation. The Fifth Fleet of the United States Navy is responsible for naval forces in the Persian Gulf, Red Sea, Arabian Sea, and coast off East Africa as far south as Kenya. Since 2005, the Sixth Fleet ships have increasingly been operating around Africa, particularly in the Gulf of Guinea. See here for 5th and 6th fleet components – http://navysite.de/navy/fleet.htm

So .. what better way to save millions of dollars in the deconstruction of an aging Nuclear Aircraft Carrier and her 8 reactors than to sacrifice her to the War Gods.

With that I give you USS Enterprise False Flag!!

Oh, and about those Israeli Subs mentioned in the video, I do have material on that as well. I’m having trouble with an aging computer [not this one] and cant get to it right now, which is why I found some stuff on the Wayback Machince.

The Madness Of March – Updated Twice

March of 2012 could turn out to be quite crazy for the world. I know that personally I see it as having a potential for disaster. My buddy Korn Likker is having that surgery on March 7 that could be extremely difficult. My Mom is having major dental surgery on that day, as well. Dec 7th is potentially a day for something quite big elsewhere, too.

With the obvious goings on in the Middle East, there is a potential powder keg ready to blow. It seems that Israel’s crazies are ready to light the fuse, but they want to use America as their torch. I doubt that it is necessary to strong arm our government officials since they are seemingly owned by the Zionist bastards who control most of what is happening. But even so, the Zionists are saying that they will attack with or without America’s blessing (as IF we actually control anything they do). Sure, this just could be more rhetoric used to scare people, but maybe not. And why not?

Because there are those that believe much of this is related to Purim, the Jewish celebration of mass genocide (something the Judaic God seems to relish). Allow me to point out several articles that I think one should read and learn about. First is Zen Gardner’s essay, “Purim: Why War On Persia (Iran) Could Start March 7th“. Read it all, but notice that using Purim’s dates for attacking others is nothing new. Zen points out:

  • -The Iraq war of 1991 ended prematurely exactly on Purim day, immediately following the savage slaughter of 150,000 surrendering Iraqi troops during the Purim dates. Decidedly montrous in any estimation.
  • -The next Iraq war began on Purim 2003, with a wreckless, sensationalized death-dealing bombardment of Iraqi civilians. The war went on dealing millions of needless deaths and continues to this day.
  • -To top it off, the merciless  Libyan invasion began on Purim 2011…just one week after the Japan earthquake and tsunami.
  • -There were also massive earthquakes on Purim, a 7.8 in Chile in 2008 and an 8.8 in China in 2010.–HAARP and other technologies in the hands of these extremely evil forces?

Update:

Snordelhans offers Zen’s above post via video. Nicely done:

This may come as a surprise to all you fellow Bible Belters who seem to embrace the Old Testament more than you do the New one (you know, the one that contains the red letter words of that “Prince of Peace”), but Purim is a “religious” celebration that descends into the depths of depravity, lust and murder. They are encouraged to get so drunk that they cannot tell the difference between good and evil. They even offer special ear-shaped “cookies” to their children, so they can ritualistically cannibalize their enemy. The entire spectacle should be enough for any real Christian to completely distance himself from any “Judeo” part of their Christianity.

A second article is from Video Rebel’s blog called, “Purim 2012 Red Alert: Fun For Netanyahu Might Not Be Good For You“. In this article, the author points out that there are some significant things happening just before and after Purim this year:

Benjamin Netanyahu will confer with President Obama at the White House on March 5th to discuss an attack on Iran. On March 8th the FBI plan to shutdown and scrub 4 million computers for an alleged DNS virus. You do not have to be paranoid to think that either a war or a false flag Gulf of Tonkin type of attack on an American ship near the Iranian coast would best be staged at a time when the computers of 4 million anti-war and anti-Zionist activists are shutdown.

Should anyone be surprised if something goes down during this timeframe? If you are, why?

It is apparent that everything is falling apart here and all around the world. You’d have to be watching Fox News and all the other Zionist propaganda outlets to not know how close to devastation we find ourselves. Its not like they won’t do ANYTHING to lie to you:

I must say that more than anything in the above clip, I was most impressed by the fact that the guy said he would hope that his 13 year old brother would grab a weapon to defend him, should the same thing happen here in America. However, to most Bible Belt Christians, defense against an occupying force is little more than terrorism (the hypocrisy is sickening).

What you are experiencing at your house is certainly what is being experienced by most Americans, no matter what lies are spewed via the complicit media. It is real and it is not your fault, nor the fault of any poor people. It tells me that the thieves have taken about as much wealth as they can and its time to bring this thing to a head.

And how might they do it? Maybe this is what is in store? Sure, Americans (the poor ones, anyway) have had enough of war. We see how it is ruining our way of life and how it strips us of our few remaining liberties. we are beginning to see how we have ravaged and maimed hundreds of thousands of innocents… displaced them and have taken over their resources. Any sane person wouldn’t want that to happen to their own family, but somehow we are still supporting the monsters who do it to others in our name. But since we are awakening (slowly but surely), the PTB need something else to convince us (AGAIN) that we need MORE war. More carnage.

The Iranians have thousands of guided missiles with fuel air explosive warheads. A 1,000 fuel air explosive has as much destructive capability as a 4,000 pound conventional bomb. Fires and explosives require oxygen. A fuel air explosive sends fuel out in all directions gathering oxygen so it can ignite and explode. It has a greater blast radius and creates much more deadly blast waves than a conventional bomb that must take its oxygenate with it in the warhead. It would only take a handful of these guided missiles with fuel air explosives to destroy an American military base leaving a few survivors to be captured or killed by the Iranians or their allies. Within minutes every military base in Central Command will cease to exist. It seems the men and women on those USAF, Marine and Army bases will serve the same purpose as the Persian Gulf and Mediterranean fleets. They will sacrifice their lives not to attack Iran because they will be dead before they can do any harm to any Iranian civilians. They are there to die so the folks back home will be absolutely convinced that World War III is a really good idea.

Previously, I wrote an essay entitled “The Bankers Want America To Lose World War III”. The bankers passed NAFTA and ratified the WTO treaty to send 50,000 manufacturing plants overseas. The Lords of Wall Street do not serve in the armed forces. So they had their professors with Foundation grant money figure out that if America’s supply lines were stretched 8,000 miles to China on a dodgy credit card to China, the Americans will lose World War III. To ensure an American defeat they decided to attack two nations with strong ties to Russia and China. There are no accidents when you are dealing with bankers.

If you are a normal person, you might wonder why anyone would want to start World War III only to intentionally lose it. You must realize by now that the bankers are not normal people and that they despise you. They have stolen over 30 trillion dollars from you. They are covering their tracks by having Ben Bernanke hyperinflate the currency which will soon hyperinflate prices. Between now and the collapse of the dollar, the bankers have to either get you killed or put you in a lockdown prison called a National Security State. The bankers are in the process of stealing the last few dollars from our pensions and savings. When prices go sky high, they will have stolen your last few dollars, pounds and euros. You will be of no further use to them and it will be time for you to die. The most likely scenario is a series of plagues that the bankers imagine will kill from 6 to 6.5 billion people.

Still not convinced? Maybe the fact that the bankers are jumping ship in mass might help. Again, I suspect that many know that they have rung about as much wealth from us as possible and they are running to hide as the shit hits the fan.

I should also point out that we are being met with warnings from other world powers. If this goes down, you can bet your sweet bippy that it will be the beginning of WWIII:

On a completely different note, what if the madness of March is to include another HUGE earthquake? Read the following post/video that ARF turned me on to. It appears that every 188 or 189 days an enormous earthquake occurs somewhere in the world.

The liklihood that there will be another megaquake and axis shift on march 22, 2012 is very high. In my opinion, the cause of these shifts is a massive celestial object moving inward from the 9 o’clock orientation of the solar system/ springtime/ constellations Leo-Orion.

The effects on the planet are directly correlated to Earth’s orientation relative to the massive object, with shifts of Earth’s axis occuring every 377 days, and significant Earthquakes every 188-9 days.

As a matter of fact, dutchsinse also suspects that a very large earthquake is due (not necessarily for the same reason).

Use the links below to monitor the earthquake developments globally.

monitor earthquakes on a global basis:

Link to DOZENS of Volcano webcams:

http://sincedutch.wordpress.com/2012/01/02/112012-all-the-volcano-webcams-of-…

The signs of unrest are showing — volcanic activity increasing (just like last year before the Japanese massive earthquake) …. global earthquake swarm activity showing obvious signs (again like last year)… and now we’re seeing a localized 5.0M+ earthquake swarm in and around Japan proper (just like last year as well).

Put that all together, and you get a REAL POSSIBILITY of another large earthquake off the coast of Japan …. soon (weeks not months)

All areas around the ring of fire, all areas that are KNOWN earthquake prone.. and all areas that ARE NOT earthquake prone… all these areas where people reside — you need to have a plan and be prepared. We’re going to be seeing earthquakes occur in places that don’t normally see much earthquake activity ….

Areas like Canada, the northeast USA , midwest and south USA —– areas like Central Europe , France, Germany, England, Belgium, Netherlands — be alert as well.

Russia, China, India —- BE ON HIGH ALERT — the whole area of Russia/China/India is also showing movement and buildup (the recent 6.8M in siberia for instance plus DOZENS of 5.0M+).

North american Craton as well — states of Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and the entire area of New England (connecticut, delaware, maryland, new york, pennsylvania, new jersey, washington DC, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Maine, and Ohio (several more states are included in the outskirts of the main craton edge — basically this puts the ENTIRE USA under a potential earthquake threat in the near term (weeks).

If the activity dies down over the next few weeks, we can all take a deep sigh of relief.. but until things calm down globally.. THE TIME TO PREPARE WAS YESTERDAY !!!! Get your plans together… food, water, clothing, communication, transportation, and self defense … know the plan and be ready (just in case).

The drug war continues…er excellerates.

Been doing a lot of poking around the drug war blogs. What I’m seeing isn’t good. Its happening just as I told folks it would back when the med pot question ramped up.I kept tell folks.”Ya, start you dispensaries. Put your names on lists as med patients. Down the road when things are ripe, the Feds WILL come down on everyone getting involved. They will have your names and numbers.” well…here we are….they are cracking down. But they don’t care about people like Korn Likker or my family members and friends. The facts are out there that show our government has lied and continues to lie about cannabis. It doesn’t matter. McCarthyism and Jim Crow are standing tall these days.

Theres a good discussion over at alternet:

Oh ..by the way… we may be headed into a ‘war’ in..you guessed it..Syria.

B’Man’s Guest Post Sabbath Watch: The Fruit Of Lies And Hypocrisy

Submitted by Don Lucas (please reference the original article found at WSWS.org):

Brothers and Sisters

 

Lies are lies, and they all bear bad fruit. This is not going to be another little history lesson. Below is what happens when lies are told. This actually happened and it is NOT an isolated case. I have sent several articles on this subject and if you have read them you will know that what happened in the copied  article below is common. You just won’t find it on the news unless for some reason it develops a life of its own.
“Common” i.e. “it happened all the time” is how this incident was described by Major General Steve Johnson. I will have a few brief words to say at the conclusion of the article.

No prison time for Marine charged in Haditha massacre

By Naomi Spencer
25 January 2012

As part of a plea deal, Staff Sergeant Frank Wuterich, leader of a Marine squad responsible for the 2005 slaughter of 24 Iraqi civilians, will spend no time in a military prison. Wuterich, 31, pleaded guilty on January 23 to a single charge of negligent dereliction of duty for his role in the massacre in Haditha and its subsequent cover-up.

The Marine faced a sentencing hearing Tuesday at Camp Pendleton, California. Previously indicted on unpremeditated murder charges in 19 of the 24 civilian deaths, counts carrying a maximum sentence of 152 years in prison, Wuterich was allowed to walk free. He still faces possible reduction in pay and rank. (OMG, not a possible reduction in pay and rank!! Jeez, it was only 24 innocent civilians.) During proceedings Monday, the court did not discuss a discharge for Wuterich, who has remained on active duty since the massacre.

The Haditha case was the longest running criminal prosecution against military personnel involved in the Iraq War and Wuterich was the last man among the original eight facing charges in the case. Six other Marines had charges dismissed, and one Marine was acquitted.

The plea agreement of Wuterich brings the three-and-a-half-week long court martial to a close, thereby suppressing more details about the killings, one of the worst atrocities committed by US soldiers against civilians since the My Lai massacre in Vietnam. (Remember, My Lai was a common occurrence too. It just happened to make the papers, the same as this atrocity)

As in other atrocity cases related to the US occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan—among them the Abu Ghraib torture case, the Blackwater killings of Baghdad’s Nisour Square, the Afghan “kill team,” and others—the outcome of the Haditha killings absolves higher level military and government figures of any responsibility for the consequences of policies (CYA) that low-ranking military personnel carry out.Like the massacre itself, the outcome of the case underscores the criminal character of the wars and the political establishment behind them.

Wuterich pleaded guilty to the minor charge of negligent dereliction of duty for ordering the squad to “shoot first and ask questions later” on the night of November 19, 2005.

Although the rampage began after a convoy in which the Marines were traveling was struck by a roadside bomb, testimony of the men make clear that Wuterich and others were knowingly slaughtering innocent bystanders with no provocation.

Sergeant Sanick Dela Cruz, a young corporal at the time of the massacre, testified earlier this month that he witnessed Wuterich order four teen aged students and a taxi driver out of a passing cab, then execute them as they knelt in a position of surrender. Dela Cruz, who had been granted immunity in exchange for his testimony, said he and others riddled the victims with bullets as they lay on the ground, then urinated on their corpses. Afterward, Dela Cruz told the jury, Wuterich ordered him to lie about the killings, concocting a story involving the victims running away and coming under fire by Iraqi soldiers.

After the street shooting, Wuterich ordered the squad on a sweep of three nearby houses, where families including many women, children, and elderly residents had been sleeping. The Marines went room by room, throwing grenades and opening fire on the unarmed occupants. Nineteen civilians were killed. At no point were the Marines engaged by return fire.

Squad member Colonel Stephen Tatum had testified that in one dark bedroom, he joined Wuterich in firing upon small silhouettes. (FYI-’small silhouettes’ are children) Facing the court Tuesday, however, Wuterich insisted he “never fired any weapon at any women or children that day.” He also stated that although he was entering a guilty plea, he rejected the suggestion that it was an acknowledgement of wrongdoing by his squad or the chain-of-command. “In no way should my acceptance of responsibility ever be considered an indictment of the Marines or the commanders.” (If murdering God knows how many innocent men, women, and children, is not an indictment of the Marines, they what, pray tell is? Dropping two atomic bombs on innocent civilians? No, that was the Army/Air Force, not the Marines).

“The case doesn’t end with a bang, it ends with a whimper and a pretty weak whimper at that,” former Marine Corps prosecutor and judge Gary Solis commented to the Associated Press. “When you have 24 dead bodies and you get dereliction of duty, that’s pretty good defense work.” (FYI- that is not ‘pretty good defense work”, that is a cover up from the very top)

The announcement of the plea deal provoked outrage and statements of condemnation from Iraqis. “This is a disgraceful sentence for an inhuman crime that lines up with the Abu Ghraib scandal and the Nisour Square massacre,” Hussein Ali, an engineer in Baghdad, told Reuters. “History will mention this sentence and will show how the Americans have a black history that disrespects human blood.” (Imagine if you will, the reverse happening here in the US. How do you think you would feel if 24 men, women, and children were massacred out of pure vengeance? Especially knowing that the massacre and wanton killing of civilians, even if only a few at a time, were a common occurrence in the “liberated” town you lived in. Imagine if that was your wife and children, murdered in their beds. Just a thought.)

Khalid Salman, lawyer for the victims’ families in Haditha and cousin of one of those killed in the attack, said he was in disbelief over the sentence and had to double-check the news. “This is not a traffic felony,” he said. (No, because had it been a traffic penalty he would have paid a fine.) Another Haditha resident and relative of one of the victims told Reuters, “This sentence gives us the proof, the solid proof that the Americans don’t respect human rights… This is an insult to the victims and an insult to all Iraqis.” (Like it or not, this is how “they” see “us/US”, and how they view Christians.)

The outcome of the trial completes the effort of the military to tamp down the implications of the case. From the beginning, the story was presented as one of a chaotic firefight involving insurgents and an embattled Marine squad. After an outcry from relatives and witnesses, the military offered relatives settlements of $2,500 per victim. ($2,500, is adding insult to injury) The military regards civilian casualties as a cost of doing business, and that the Marines need to get “the job done” no matter what it takes, a 2007 investigation into the Haditha killings by Army Major General Eldon Bargewell concluded.This perspective, codified in official military policy, found expression in widespread killings of civilians. Indeed, over the eight years of official occupation, well over a million Iraqi civilians were killed.

Documents found in an Iraqi dump, retrieved by the New York Times last month as they were being burned, bear out Bargewell’s findings. Among the papers were statements given by military personnel on the Haditha massacre. “I mean, whether it’s a result of our action or other action, you know, discovering 20 bodies, throats slit, 20 bodies, you know, beheaded, 20 bodies here, 20 bodies there,” Col. Thomas Cariker, a commander in Anbar Province told investigators, describing the scope of the carnage.

Major General Steve Johnson, who was commander of US forces in Anbar Province at the time, stated dismissively that “it happened all the time … it was just the cost of doing business on that particular engagement.” Civilians were routinely shot down at checkpoints, other officers explained, when the men stationed as guards got edgy or confused. “I had Marines shoot children in cars and deal with the Marines individually one on one about it because they have a hard time dealing with that,” one officer testified. (A “hard time”? As I’ve said before, PTSD is a result of soldiers witnessing, and/ or actually killing innocent human beings. It also involves seeing and/or doing all of the horrors of war. It is especially doing these things which they do in clear violation of their God given conscience. It’s not “counseling” they need, but confession and repentance.

Brief Commentary

To those among you or even to those you know, be they friends or family, if you cast your vote for any of the Presidents and/or Representatives who voted for Iraq War 1, Iraq War 2, Afghanistan War (10 years and counting), Libya and the rest of the Middle East (CIA fomented) and now it would appear the soon bombing/missile attacks, and very possibly a “targeted nuclear attack” on Iran’s “alleged” nuclear weapons facilities, please search your heart and the scriptures (which I have reiterated scores of times) to see if you have any culpability in this endless loss of life and destruction of whole countries.

The answer to this is simple if you base your conclusion on scripture… Yes. If the answer is yes, then please repent and tell your brethren who voted for these war criminals do all they can to bring scripture light and truth to others as well. I will not belabour the point, but if you find yourself searching the Old Testament and even the New Testament for scriptures that would seemingly contradict Gods Royal Law of Love to all men (think John 3:16 as a starting place), then you are wrestling the scriptures to your own destruction.

Jesus does not authorize the death and destruction innocent life. You will find nothing in the New Testament that authorizes Christians i.e. those who in truth follow Jesus and keep His commandments, to kill innocent people. Knowing these truths, if you fail to repent of your support for these Satanic Wars of Aggression and to Warn your brethren who through ignorance (as is the case with most) have supported said War Criminals and Agents of Satan, their blood will be upon your soul in the Day of Judgement. You yourself will not be held blameless, if you have not repented and washed your Garment of Righteousness in the Blood of the Lamb which is the ONLY THING that can save you.

If you are guilty of these sins and do not repent (or even if you do repent) and then blithely go on your way thinking that by “leading others to Christ” and “making disciples of them” (which usually ends up being “regular church attenders and especially 10% tithers), you are FAILING to Warn them of the very things which can and will Destroy their eternal souls. It is not enough to get someone saved and then watch them align themselves with the Satanic evils of this world and say NOTHING. How can you stand before God with clean hands and a pure heart if you countenance these things by your SILENCE?

If you think it is enough to get them delivered from the evils of Hollywood and sexual sins, to rail against homosexuality, to rant about those “evil Democrats”, and not warn them of the dangers of supporting war criminals and ipso facto all of the Death and Evil they perpetuate, you are walking in Deception. Am I going too far? Look at the photos attached and into the faces of the recipients of Americas wars and the Christians who support them, in its multitude of other rapacious sins which I don’t have time to go into, and ask yourself…Am I innocent? It their life as valuable as mine?

Your comments are welcome.

God bless you,
