Kentucky Judge Olu Stevens: Shvooga In A Black Robe


A Kentucky judge blamed two parents for their young girl’s “constant fear of black men” after an armed robbery she witnessed, local reports said.

The parents argued for a tougher sentence for the man convicted of busting into their Louisville home at gunpoint while their daughter watched “Spongebob Square Pants,” according to the Courier-Journal.

Judge Olu Stevens blasted Jordan and Tommy Gray’s victim impact statement at a court hearing in February and again recently in a Facebook post he later deleted.

“Whenever we are running errands, if we come across a black male, she holds me tight and begs me to leave,” Gray wrote in February of her daughter. “It has affected her friendships at school and our relationships with African-American friends.”Stevens, who is a black man, was “deeply offended.”

“This little girl certainly has been victimized, and she can’t help the way she feels,” Stevens said, according to video obtained by the Courier-Journal. “My exception is more with her parents and their accepting that kind of mentality and fostering those type of stereotypes.”

Stevens contends the statement played no role in his decision to sentence the robber, 27-year-old Gregory Wallace, who pleaded guilty to the March 21, 2013, crime, to only five years’ probation. He defended his actions, grounded with five years on the bench, with a statement early Saturday that said he “will not be intimidated” by negative backlash.

“As for my “wrath”, I had none. I leave wrath to the Commonwealth’s Attorney and others disgruntled by the ultimate decision. I did not criticize the child. I cautioned the parents against racial stereotyping,” Stevens wrote on Facebook. “If necessary, I will stand alone. I have no animus toward anyone. I have consistently been here for over five years. I look forward to continuing to see you on this medium and in court.”

Supporters of the parents are reportedly calling for Stevens to be removed from office.

What’s the moral of the story? Personally, it proves my own personal experiences of liking a few black folks, but despising niggers. This judge is a nigger. He just happens to be black, too.

Sorry. It had to be said. Let’s hear the claims of racism and white supremacy as he lives in his $2,000,000 home and owes $500,000 in back taxes (telling me that he probably doesn’t even know anyone like the guy he let off: certainly wouldn’t hang with them).

Fast Tracking Free Trade Agreements

ccsplBIG

We have a dismal, lying failure for a president (yeah, what else is new?). So, why in the world would the US citizenry want this intellectually deprived person negotiating free trade agreements in lieu of Congressional debate?

Why would we even consider free trade agreements at all, after what NAFTA and other agreements have done to our economy and way of life? 57,000 manufacturing facilities have left the US, taking their millions of jobs with them, yet we want more? Really?

Why would we allow these things to be discussed and planned in secret?

Thank this bastard and his predecessor

Thank this bastard and his predecessor

Under the US constitution, Congress has the right to engage in trade agreements prior to this, and to set negotiating parameters. For example, Congress might insist on parameters to protect the environment or public health.

But under Fast Track, Congress more or less relinquishes this right (and responsibility), letting the President negotiate at will instead. And, once the agreements are completed, you can no longer make any amendments. Congress simply votes for the agreement or against it, in its entirety.

They are going to ram even more, job depleting, right’s erasing agreements down our throats. Don’t think for a second this will benefit Americans in any way whatsoever. It benefits the large multinational corporations.

Right now there are two huge trade agreements being negotiated, both of which will have a major impact on the US economy and other aspects of public and environmental health:

  1. Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) which involves the United States and 11 other countries around the Pacific Rim. Japan, Malaysia, and Vietnam are some of the bigger countries involved
  2. Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) which is an agreement between the US and Europe

There’s a lot at stake here, as these two trade agreements are negotiating rules around medicines, local food programs, food safety programs, and even labor rights. According to Lilliston, there’s simply too much at stake to allow the President to negotiate these agreements on his own, and not be able to amend the agreements once completed.

 

SHAFTAI know many of you can’t help but believe the lying liars when they utter their nonsense on TV, but just think back to the jobs lost due to the NAFTA giant suck (and the other “SHAFTA’s“) and think to yourself about how much that actually helped you. The fact is that all of this is purposeful, with an intent to change America into some third world-like country with lower wages (we will accept the lower wages when we are all starving and then the jobs will come back, slowly).

In the above link I wrote:

And what does this mean for me (or you)? It means that I, a guy who has “pulled his boot straps” up COUNTLESS times and thought he found the answer by going back to college at 26, working hard (making the President’s List… 4.0… almost every semester, the Dean’s List… 3.9 the only other semester) to obtain THREE degrees, one specifically sought due to its expected long-term, high technology field (robotics and automated manufacturing technology), worked for decades to build my engineering and sales skills, become successful, own the big home and fine cars and do anything and everything I so desired…

… just to have it all sucked away for some world order scheme.

It means that others who did less or accomplished less have even LESS of a chance to do more than “get by”. It means that me and my family are being forced into poverty and those who have/had less are going to hurt even worse.

What I am saying is that it doesn’t matter how much you plan, how hard you work, if you are in or out of debt, if you go to college or not… what matters is “are you Big Money”? Are you one that will sell your soul for gain, knowing that you will profit while others will suffer?

This is nothing new and something I have ranted about for years. I wish I could reach more people and have influence.

Letter to a Court Historian about Forrestal’s Death

Letter to a Court Historian about Forrestal’s Death

by DC Dave

H_L_Mencken

H.L. Mencken

H.L. Mencken aptly called them “the timorous eunuchs who posture as American historians.” That was in 1920, but little has changed. It might be a freshly minted Ph.D. from TCU, teaching at a backwater university in Texas like Matthew A. McNiece, or the man often described as the foremost historian of the Cold War, Yale history professor John Lewis Gaddis, but the fake authoritativeness and the real pusillanimity are at least as evident today as they were in Mencken’s day. That is certainly the case when it comes to their writing about the very important subject of the violent death of the U.S. government’s leading opponent of the creation of the state of Israel, Secretary of Defense James Forrestal.

photo-herken-gregg

“the timorous eunuchs who posture as American historians”

Now comes a man who has achieved a station in the profession that, but for his inability to write coherent English, young McNiece might aspire to, University of California at Merced professor emeritus Gregg Herken. You know that Herken has made it with the ruling establishment when you see that his new book on the movers and shakers who lived in the Georgetown district of Washington, DC, during the Cold War era got reviewed by The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, the New Yorker, the Weekly Standard, and numerous other publications. That he has the stamp of approval as a certified court historian is further evidenced by the fact that for 15 years he was chairman of the Department of Space History at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum.

What strikes one in listening to his presentation about his book at Washington’s Politics and Prose bookstore is his apparent lack of any sense of outrage over the very cozy relationship that existed (and still exists, we must presume) between prominent putative journalists and people at the very highest levels of America’s intelligence community, that is to say, our secret government.

People so completely in bed with the most sinister people in the government can hardly be proper watchdogs upon them.

One might say the same thing about professional historians. The government kept its own inquiry into Forrestal’s death secret for over 55 years and this fact seems not to have troubled our professional history community in the slightest. They continued with the snap suicide conclusion reached by the local coroner, the head of Bethesda Naval Hospital, and the news media, even when the summary results of the inquiry, released nearly a half year late, reached no conclusion as to what caused Forrestal’s fall from a 16th floor window. Townsend Hoopes and Douglas Brinkley, in their often-cited biography, Driven Patriot: The Life and Times of James Forrestal, managed to leave out the information that there had ever even been such an inquiry, much less that it had been kept secret. And when this writer was able to pry it loose through use of the Freedom of Information Act in 2004, our neutered arbiters of historical truth unanimously dummied up about it and have kept their silence right up to the present day.

Herken is comfortably in that mainstream, ignoring completely everything that we have learned since the initial reporting on the May 22, 1949, fall in his brief mention of Forrestal’s death. His offense is worse than most, because we know he knows better. One of his references, as I note in the March 28 email that I was moved to write to him (below), is to the article in which I reveal the phoniness of the transcription of the morbid poem that was sold to the public as a sort of suicide note:

Dear Professor Herken,

I was impressed by the scholarship that you demonstrated in your letter to The New York Review of Books, reinforcing with new evidence your already persuasive argument that Robert Oppenheimer was an active member of the Communist Party of the United States.  I was especially disappointed, then, to see how completely your scholarly skills seemed to have deserted you when you wrote about the death of our first secretary of defense, James Forrestal, in your most recent book, The Georgetown Set: Friends and Rivals in Cold War Washington:

Dismissed from his Pentagon post by Truman in March for his intransigence in the defense budget debate, Forrestal suffered a nervous breakdown weeks later and was confined to a secure wing of the navy’s hospital in Bethesda, Maryland.  During the early morning hours of May 22, 1949, after a restless night spent copying lines from the chorus of Sophocles’s play Ajax, Forrestal fell to his death from the window of his room on the hospital’s sixteenth floor.

He would be the first senior-ranking American casualty of the Cold War. (pp. 94-95)

Taking your small inaccuracies first, Forrestal did not fall from “the window of his room.” There were at least three windows in his room, but Forrestal, according to the official record, did not go out any of them.

He went out the window of the kitchen across the hall from his room.

No diagnosis of “nervous breakdown” was made by any of the doctors examining Forrestal at Bethesda Naval Hospital.  You can search the transcript of the official “investigation” of Forrestal’s death and find that the word “nervous” appears only once, in the endorsing letter of Dr. James Strecker in which he states his own qualifications on the subject of nervous disorders.

It is also unwarranted to state flatly that Truman sacked Forrestal because of his “intransigence in the defense budget debate.” There are any numbers of reasons why Truman replaced Forrestal with Louis Johnson, but by giving that sole reason you do manage to make your insupportable conclusion that Forrestal was a “casualty of the Cold War” sound somewhat plausible.  Arnold Rogow’s carefully hedged-in conclusion is much more supportable, which is why I lead off with it in “New Forrestal Document Exposes Cover-up.”

However history may ultimately judge his opposition to the establishment of Israel, by 1949 it was clear that Forrestal was, in a sense, one of the casualties of the diplomatic warfare that had led to the creation of the Jewish state.

All these inaccuracies are relatively slight, though, compared to your statement about Forrestal’s restless night spent copying those lines from Sophocles.  You should have told your readers, as all the other promoters of the suicide thesis have, that the poem in question reflects a bleak and despairing state of mind.  More importantly, though, you should have shared with readers the evidence that most of those other writers did not have, that is, that the handwriting of the transcription doesn’t resemble Forrestal’s in the least and that the corpsman on duty looking over Forrestal said that in those last two hours of Forrestal’s life when the corpsman was on duty the lights were off in his room and he did no reading or writing, and that no book was entered into evidence during the official investigation.

You then proceed to compound your error in the endnote that accompanies the quoted passage:

Internet conspiracy theorists have suggested that Forrestal was actually murdered by Soviet spies, or possibly by Mossad agents, because of his opposition to creation of the state of Israel.  While some of Forrestal’s “paranoia” turns out to have been justified—he was right in believing that the U.S. government had been penetrated by Russian spies—his personal papers at Princeton leave little doubt that he was deeply depressed for some time prior to his death.

Since the Mossad would not exist until a half year after Forrestal’s death, not even those people you tar with the meaningless pejorative “Internet conspiracy theorists” have ever, to my knowledge, suggested that that organization had anything to do with Forrestal’s death.  That pro-Israel and pro-Communist partisans within the Truman government were, however, behind Forrestal’s death has been suggested—by me in particular.  You have referenced my work so you must know that I name the powerful White House aide David Niles as the most likely culprit in the plot to murder Forrestal.  He was identified in the Venona intercepts as a person cooperating with Communist agents and he was eventually dismissed by Truman for passing important military secrets to Israel.

Because you specifically cite Part 3 of my “Who Killed James Forrestal?”—by web address though not by name—you know as well that I am on the firmest of ground when I say that the Sophocles transcription was not in Forrestal’s handwriting.  That is the article, after all, in which I revealed the dissimilarity between the handwriting in the transcription and several Forrestal handwriting samples: http://www.dcdave.com/article4/041103.htm.

Surely you must agree that nothing that might be found among Forrestal’s personal papers that is suggestive of his suicide can compare in significance to the evidence that I have presented in this short email that is suggestive of his murder.  The lead doctor at Bethesda, Captain George Raines, after all, said that he was suicidally depressed (although his second in command, Captain Stephen Smith, seems to have disagreed rather vigorously), but that evidence of suicide hardly compares to the physical evidence of murder:  the ginned-up “suicidal transcription,” and broken glass on the bed and the laundered crime scene that I discuss in Part 2 of “Who Killed James Forrestal?”

I would very much like to hear what you might have to say in defense of what you have written about Forrestal’s death in light of the facts that I have presented.  Should I hear nothing I shall take it as a concession that what you have written is, as it seems to me on its face, indefensible.

Sincerely,

David Martin

March 28, 2015

Ten days have now passed and, predictably, I have had no response from Professor Herken. No doubt he has concluded that a person with a mainstream approval rating like his need not be bothered by anything so trivial as the truth. Nobody who might threaten his aerie, in his judgment, has said anything about his errors concerning Forrestal’s death, after all, so he needn’t be bothered.

As Mencken would have anticipated, he is in good company. Douglas Brinkley has brushed me off more than once as have the entire stable of historians at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center and a host of others.   Frankly, I don’t know how they live with themselves, or at least how they can refrain from spitting at what they see in the mirror when they shave in the morning.

“Hijacker” Instructor Described Woeful Skills

“Hijacker” Instructor Described Woeful Skills

Guest column by Hugh Turley

An edited version of this article was published in the September 2008 Hyattsville (MD) Life and Times.

This month at the Pentagon a memorial will be dedicated to the 184 victims who died on September 11, 2001. One of those victims was my high school ROTC instructor, Max Beilke. On March 29, 1973, Max Beilke was the “official last man” to leave Vietnam when the United States was ending its direct military presence in Vietnam.

When tragedy struck the morning of September 11 people wondered what had happened.   The names and the number of victims would not be known for weeks.natsios-flight77

The following day The Washington Post described how American Airlines Flight 77 approached the Pentagon, “The unidentified pilot executed a pivot so tight that it reminded observers of a fighter jet maneuver…aviation sources said the plane was flown with extraordinary skill. Someone even knew how to turn off the transponder, a move that is considerably less than obvious.”

Within days the names of 19 terrorist hijackers were publicized.

On September 16, Hani Hanjour was named as the hijacker and pilot aboard American Airlines Flight 77. The Washington Post said, “Federal records show Hani Hanjoor [sic] obtained a commercial pilot’s license in April of 1999 with a rating to fly commercial jets”.

When Hanjour’s name appeared in the press, Marcel Bernard, the chief flight instructor at the Freeway Airport in nearby Mitchellville, Md., contacted authorities and reported that Hanjour had visited the airport.

hanjour

Hani Hanjour

Hanjour went into the air in a Cessna 172 three times with instructors in August of 2001, a scant month before the attack on the Pentagon, for a “check out” to rent an airplane, Bernard told the Hyattsville Life and Times. “Insurance requires that a person must be checked out before they can rent a plane at the airport,” Bernard said. “Hanjour’s skills were so poor we would not rent a plane to him.”

The Prince George’s Journal [Sept. 18, 2001] reported that Hanjour did not finish a flight school in Arizona in 1996 “because instructors felt he was not capable.” Bernard recalled that Hanjour did have a commercial pilot’s license that had been issued in Arizona, but he was certain Hanjour did not have what is called a “Type Rating,” which is necessary to fly commercial jets.

Not only are the requisite piloting skills different, but a certified commercial jet pilot must be proficient in English. Bernard said that Hanjour’s English speaking skills were so poor he “could barely understand him on the telephone.”

Bernard said it is possible a person with some flying experience, even a poor pilot like Hanjour, could steer a plane in the air and crash it into a building. But, he said,

“[Hanjour’s] skills were so poor he may have been aiming for the White House when he hit the Pentagon.”

Bernard was asked about the Post’s report that “aviation sources said the plane was flown with extraordinary skill” and executed a pivot that “reminded observers of a fighter jet maneuver.”

“That’s difficult to believe,” he responded. “I don’t believe a lot that I read in the newspaper.”

He then asked rhetorically, “Whose opinions are those, and who are the unnamed aviation sources?”

It is fitting that a memorial should be dedicated to all the innocent victims who perished on that fateful day. It is also proper that all of our questions be answered.

How To Stand Up For Your Rights- Make Money- And Be An Inspiration Too

Cops get owned! Arrest Leads to Legal Financial Settlement from town in rural New England

Dash cam video of a police interaction that I had from October 0f 2013. I did get arrested (for protecting the rights these idiots took an oath to uphold). The whole ordeal was about two hours, BUT, I was awarded damages and at my request, the town’s entire police department had to undergo special training on “Terry Stops” (proper search and seizure essentially). This is not to mention that I got to school these rogue “police officers”.
Also, just to mention, this was settled without going to any courts and without the town or police department/employees admitting any guilt… of course!!!
The volume begins at about the one minute mark and is garbled for the first few seconds. It’s activated when the public servant employs the (false)emergency lights. If by chance you see or hear anything in the video that sounds like editing, it was not done by me. I posted this in it’s entirety, as it was given to me. That would be aside from any typed narration of course.

Now I must say that I am not 100% convinced that this is real, but even not, it is an outstanding example of how to assert your rights as a citizen.

Chosin

A Review

by DC Dave

81v9MbGmOqL._SL1500_

Imagine that you were able to interview a number of the survivors of Custer’s battle at the Little Big Horn.  Imagine further that some film had been taken of the battle and you were able to get your hands on it.  Imagine, as well, that a very realistic Hollywood movie had been made about the battle and you were able to get some choice footage from it.  Then you locate a fine composer who can establish just the right mood, as you weave it all together into a documentary movie.

tom-ricks-chosin-reservoir

That comes close to what Brian Iglesias and Anton Sattler have accomplished with Chosin, a film about General Douglas MacArthur’s much bigger and more recent debacle.  It is known as the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, and it took place in the far reaches of northern Korea in the early winter of 1950, only five months after the Korean War began.  As a truly horrible experience, though, Chosin Reservoir was Little Bighorn on steroids.  It was anything but a short, sharp decisive battle.  It lasted for 17 days, sometimes in driving snow and always in bitter, sub-zero temperatures.  The American soldiers were surrounded and vastly outnumbered by several divisions of Chinese soldiers, and, in spite of strong evidence of what was about to happen, their leaders had been taken completely by surprise.  Listening to the compelling stories that the interviewers were able to elicit from a truly extraordinary collection of veterans, one is, by turns, heartbroken and inspired.  Particularly inspiring, as well, was the actual footage of the rescue of some 98,000 civilian refugees—many of them Christians—who faced almost certain slaughter at the hands of the Communists who suspected them of collaboration.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I attended a premier showing of Chosin at the U.S. Navy Memorial in Washington, DC.  There was a panel discussion afterward with the two film makers, both of whom are U.S. Marine reserve officers and combat veterans of the first Gulf War and of Iraq, and two Chosin Reservoir battle survivors.  All agreed that the fact that the filmmaker/interviewers were themselves combat veterans explained, to a large degree, how they were able to draw out the stories of the battle survivors so well.

Korean_War_Wall6

They are probably right.  But what might have been a crucial factor in making this movie an artistic triumph makes it, to my mind, somewhat dubious politically.  Little Bighorn is now universally recognized as a military disaster born of extreme hubris, the folly of one inadequate leader, General George Armstrong Custer.  Chosin Reservoir was General MacArthur’s Little Bighorn, except that it was far, far worse in almost every way imaginable.  By the usual military measure, it was a crushing defeat.  From positions that they occupied deep in the country, the United States Army and Marines were driven out of North Korea, never to return.  The makers of Chosin commendably avoid politics or appearing to espouse any particular point of view, for the most part.  But war is by its very nature political; it is not just another tragedy or act of nature.  Politics is unavoidable in a war story.  In “avoiding politics,” the filmmakers end up depicting Chosin Reservoir as a battle for survival.  If the Americans escape their encirclement and make it back to the port and onto the waiting ships, they “win.”  They do and they do, at least all the ones we see on the screen.  We never have to worry if those individuals that the viewers get attached to are going to make it, because there they are, alive, telling their stories.  To be sure, we get to hear them tell about the gruesome deaths of some of their closest buddies, but those are not people that the viewers have come to care about.

Reunion of the First Marine Division’ s Reconnaissance Company that was at the Battle of Chosin

 

In this regard, fiction is a superior medium for imparting the greater truth.  In the splendid Korean War movie, Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War, for instance, the viewers grow strongly attached to one of the characters who does what she has to do to survive during the Communist occupation of Seoul, but then, because of that, she is shot as a collaborator by the South Koreans when they retake the city.  The full senseless horror of this war and war in general is thus better revealed.

 

The Dead Have No Voice

Gray Bell

Gray Bell

The documentary makers are hamstrung, to a degree, by their method.  It is one that they share with all compilers of history who depend upon the accounts of the survivors.  They can’t interview the dead.  But they might have escaped the charge that they are unduly glorifying a costly defeat, and glorifying war in general, if they had interviewed, say, some of the widows or other loved ones of those who were killed.  My late mother, who never quite got over the loss of her drafted younger brother in that war, would have made a good interview subject.  Also, I should think that there would have been plenty of expressions of understandable bitterness toward their leaders by many, if not most, of the interviewees.  Virtually all we get to see are the brief complaints that captured Chinese soldiers are being ignored as evidence that the Chinese might have come into the war in force. (One of the survivor panelists called it the biggest failure of military intelligence in our history and said that he learned upon meeting with a Chinese veteran of the battle that the Chinese had been deployed to Korea for a full month before the actual mass attack.)

Perhaps it was because I saw the screening in a very military setting, and perhaps it was because the young film makers, like so many of their cohorts, flaunted their Marine background so strongly, but the movie, even with all the horror it depicted, to me came across as a bit too pro-war.  I can imagine General Buck Turgidson of Dr. Strangelove fame being pleased with it as an illustration of the American military “can-do” spirit instead of the needless blood-let that it was, resulting from political and military bungling.

With all the talk these days about anyone in uniform as a “hero,” selflessly serving the cause of freedom, one could easily lose sight of the fact that many of those who paid the ultimate price at Chosin Reservoir and in the Korean War were draftees, or joined to get a better deal than they would get when they were inevitably drafted.  There’s a certain irony in seeming to depict that as a glorious sacrifice for the cause of “freedom.”

maxresdefault1

All in all, this is a very powerful and important movie that repeatedly brought tears to my eyes. I fear, though, that it will be misused and the wrong message will be sent.

I Just Don’t Believe David Cole-Stein

ColeBottle

David (Stein) Cole getting shitfaced? Or just part of the scam?

The title is something I have said to myself, but was restated in writing by Eric Hunt in his Response to David Cole found at the HolocaustHoaxMuseum website.

I have said here numerous times that I look for the Decent Jew (the ones that call out the actions of the tribe and are willing to discuss the lies of the HoloHoax without the anti-Semite canard… whom are virtually impossible to find). One sure fire way to know a tribe member is their knee-jerk reaction to the old lie with further lies or name calling.

As Anthony Clifton often points out in comments found here, a Jew doesn’t have to be a Jew (whether it is a real moniker or not). The fact is that a being a Jew is slowly morphing back into what many over the centuries have felt about them; that they are  murderous, thieving, supremacist scumbags intent on controlling the world (you and I) because of their Talmudic brainwashing. Sure, there are still some of you who believe the lies of how loving and caring they are about the planet and the rest of mankind. But when it comes down to the nut-cuttin’, a Jew will believe the tribal lies (and support their Talmudic masters in Israel) over any rational or sane thought progression.

One example of how these tribe members spread the lies to other tribal folks is via the media.

When you watch this video, if you can stop yourself from laughing hysterically at the bullshit or cry because so many believe this in the face of all the evidence that easily proves it untrue, try to pick out the obvious misdirection (and then consider who with a brain would ever believe such nonsense):

I made it to the 2:07 mark and it was already so chock full of total, obvious lies that I was steaming considering all the idiots who probably will believe it because the “comedian” said it.

Seriously, Stein has the chutzpa to say that the media is anti-Semitic, when it is owned, run and controlled by Jews? And that Bill Kristol is an example of “very good” media? That Nixon was the most pro-Israel President?

How can it be that this dumb ole redneck sees the real Semites being murdered by the fake Semites and I can distinguish between the two, and so many others still swallow the garbage?

The point I am trying to make is that no matter how hard I try to find a trustworthy Jew; one that I feel is truly about caring for the world (Jew or not), I keep finding things that cause me to rethink those that might somewhat resemble a “decent Jew” (like I once thought of David Cole).

This guy had a great deal of coverage back in the 90’s (even getting TV time). Much of the work he did back then helped prove the HoloHoax was a lie. But then he disappeared, supposedly beaten several times by the JDL (Jewish Defense League) and threatened with death (as the spaghetti eating SIX MILLION LIES worshiper said above).

A short while back, he was supposedly “outed” by a girlfriend and voila, he is back… front and center.

But this ain’t the same guy, meaning he now is contradictorily suggesting that there WERE gas chambers and “death camps (at least Treblinka) and also in some obscure camp where some freak Doctor was gassing Jews and collecting their brains.

He pops up outta nowhere and now is seemingly in the middle of assisting in the divide of the revisionist movement.

I don’t trust him.

Ry Dawson's Fag Selfie

Ry Dawson’s Fag Selfie

He spent some time with another Jew lover and defender (at least that was one reason why I was banned from the faggot, Ry Dawson’s YT

channel) and one that I don’t trust, either (although Foon1e at Mami’s has himself a crush on the fag). Since that ban by Foon1e’s lover, Ry has opened up somewhat towards the Jewish rule, but has publicly stated that he hates Nazis more than Zionists and was defending the Jews at every chance he got. Funny, though, Dawson’s own blog deleted the interview (at least the Mami’s link is bad).

Side note: Foon1e, at Mami’s Shit, deleted my comment where I said “Fuck Ry and fuck his Jewish mama”. Hence the removal of the link from my sidebar and I have informed the Ry sycophantic ass-kisser phenom that I will never comment at the site again (simply because of the hypocrisy, since a courtesy perusal of the site shows significantly worse language than I used… even though mine was somewhat in jest to piss off the fag, Ry, as I did here, too, but over his fawning slobber for Grampa Paul.)

Back to Cole: Why would anyone trust him? He told off on himself when he wrote:

“So what’s a knowledgeable but disgraced Holocaust revisionist to do? Play both sides. And make some decent scratch. I created two pseudonyms – one to sell books and videos to Holocaust studies departments around the world, and one to sell books and videos to revisionists.”

– David Cole, Republican Party Animal

Chapters 7-8 as reported by Friedrich Töben

Cole, to me, is working both sides, just as any opportunistic Jew does. Fag Ry is playing the same game. Avoid them both, like the plague (and Mami’s, too, for that matter, for I don’t know who of the group can be trusted).

Other Cole quotes from Friedrich Töben’s review of Cole’s book of obfuscation:

“The truth is, I neither denied the Holocaust, nor did I ever spread hate (except when referring to Nazis, who I do, indeed, hate).”
“There are two principles I live by when I decide I want to accomplish something successfully. The first principle is, ‘just do the fucking work.’… The other principle by which I live is the old saw ‘in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.’ I find it best to work in fields where I’m surrounded by ninety percent idiots, because I can accomplish more that way. The field of Holocaust history, as I found it in 1990, and politics, as I found it in 2008, were perfect for me. My one eye beat most of the tin cup holding blindies who populated those fields.”

Thus far, what you have read is a fairly old draft that has been lingering in my Drafts folder for a several months. But yesterday, I found one of my favorite sources on these subjects (I suggest people follow his work) had addressed David ColeStein’s obvious manipulations. He is Karl Radl of Semitic Controversies. I appreciate his style:

David Cole, the infamous jewish holocaust revisionist, has been in the news a bit lately following the discovery that he had been living under a pseudonym (David Stein) and was a celebrated (orthodox) ‘holocaust’ promoter in Hollywood and among the hawkish neo-con element of the Republican party. Naturally all his former set, like Andrew Breitbart, have been shunning him because his revisionist past is completely incompatible with their slavish pro-Israel sycophancy (to Cole’s evident chagrin).

The irony to me is that Cole, who to be fair to him was brutally attacked three times by the Jewish Defense League (1) (inspired by the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, who has adroitly been called ‘Israel’s Ayatollah’), (2) is now pushing an extremist pro-Israel/pro-jewish agenda that has more than a passing similarity to the teachings of Rabbi Meir Kahane just without the Messianism and the advocacy of the use terrorism to achieve its desired ends.

Cole, for example, argues that, in terms of the concept of ‘hate speech’, there is a categorical differentiation to be made between jews and Muslims in regards to how they desire to suppress speech they don’t like. He asserts that while Muslims use shootings and bombings; jews use legal means to attempt to suppress that with which they disagree. This he judges makes talking about the ‘holocaust’ in an even vaguely critical manner far more preferable (because you’ll only go to prison/be socially ostracized) while if you make fun of Mohammed (while referring to his sexual preference for goats) then you are liable to be murdered by Muslims. (3)

This is superficially all fine and dandy, because I am sure a lot of people would rather go to prison/be isolated than murdered in cold blood by an unhinged fanatic. That said however Cole’s argument assumes that the immediate consequences are the only consequences. What Cole doesn’t talk about is the fact that while at the moment jews are criminalizing critical discussion of the ‘holocaust’; they are already paving the way for stronger punishments than simply fining and/or imprisoning their enemies.

Indeed there is an increasing medicalization of the whole concept of having a critical opinion of jews/Israel (as has been noted by Andrew Joyce) (4) and it is not unreasonable to suppose that in the next decade or two (if nothing changes) then criticism of jews and Israel will be considered ‘delusional’ and, as such, grounds for sectioning an individual, because they are evidently not right in the head.

Nor does Cole consider the fact that Muslims going mad over ‘hate speech’ directed at them is used by jewish organizations to push the boundaries of control on freedom of speech (as seen after the Charlie Hebdo case) so that the forces of law and order are increasing forced to prioritize political crimes over crimes of property and the infliction of bodily harm. (5)

This is hardly without harm especially as it is these very laws that Muslims exploit in order to justify their rampages since, after all they like the jews are a ‘persecuted minority’ trying to gain equality in a ‘racist system’. It is frankly dishonest for Cole not to even mention the fact that while Muslims may pull the trigger it is jews; who have enabled them to do it (viz. the creation of special anti-racism laws and the removal of selective immigration laws), gave them the gun and justified the acts after the fact (as being caused by ‘systematic racism’ and ‘Islamophobia’ leading to ‘alienation’ and ‘radicalization’ of the Muslim population).

Cole’s dishonesty is even more apparent on the subject of Israel when, for example, he claims, with typical chutzpathic aplomb, that jews don’t commit terrorist attacks or political violence. The fact is that they do and they have very, very long history of it.

In fact if you read the Torah, rabbinic commentaries, the story of the Shtetl and (especially) the history of Israel then you find it is actually one very long history of terrorism and political violence (often dressed up in religious garb no less).

As Elliot Horowitz, Ami Pedahzur and Arie Perliger have all noted in their work; asserting that the jews have been a meek and non-violent people is quite literally nonsense. (6)

This is thrown into stark relief when we note that only just recently an Israeli political columnist who writes for a mainstream right-wing Israeli news outlet actually advocated immediately exterminating all of Germany and Iran by nuking them. (7) When you take into account that the same threat is known to be part of Israeli policy (well actually it is just nuking the whole of Europe in ‘revenge’ for the ‘holocaust’ if Israel ever is losing a major war) and has been made on the political stage by Israeli leaders before; (8) then the idea that jews are a lesser threat then the legions of Islam to Europe is thrown into sharp relief as simply absurd.

That said Cole is partly right; the two threats are different.

The primary threat of the legions of Islam to Europe is on a primarily demographic, but it is felt more by the man on the street for the simple reason that most Islamic violence is low-level thuggery interspersed with more catastrophic (although mere pin pricks in the greater scheme of things) terror attacks.

The jewish threat on the other hand is of a whole different magnitude altogether, because while the Islamic threat is very visible as it affects people’s lives in obvious ways. The jewish threat is barely felt at street-level, because it exists in much higher arenas.

Where, for example, jews disproportionately help form and norm anti-nativist ideas, while absolutely insisting on nativism for Israel (for example Tim Wise and Barbara Spectre). It is also the state of Israel with its 200 nuclear weapons (and extensive biological and chemical arsenal) (9) and the, as we have seen, expressed desire to wipe Europe off the map at the first available opportunity. As Kevin MacDonald has rightly pointed out recently; jewish radicalism is increasingly the norm in Israel and as such Israel is going to get only ever more extreme and genocidal if current trends continue. (10)

Move over Ahmadinejad; you’ve got nothing on Netanyahu.

So the jewish and Islamic threats are different; the Muslims want a global caliphate, which has the only benefit that you might live through it. While the jewish threat by contrast is seeking the ultimate extermination of Europeans in ‘revenge’ for the ‘holocaust’, which you more than likely won’t live through.

Speaking of the ‘holocaust’ I couldn’t really mention Cole and not bring it up. From the above I think we can agree that Cole isn’t exactly ‘on our side’ and is actually shilling for Israel over at Takimag as well as trying to make the jews look like a lesser threat than the forces of Islam (I wonder why?).

Now everyone knows Cole made a ‘revisionist documentary’ about Auschwitz and the almost obscene lack of evidence (or even specifics from the ‘experts’) there is behind this charge in the mid-1990s.

Fair enough; he also got death threats from the Jewish Defense League (JDL) and was beaten up by them.

However ironic as it may seem; Cole actually downplays the very people who beat him up as a bunch of odd exceptions and small-time (if rather violent) thugs. The fact is that the JDL, the Kach organization and the modern equivalent, the Jewish Defense Organization (JDO), were, and are, fairy hard-core terrorists as can be ascertained by merely reading a book about them. (11)

Just a little chutzpah there, but it does give a good idea that Cole has strongly ideologically tinted lens to his work as well as being extremely egoistic.

He readily admits for example that, from 1997 until he was found out fairly recently, he was a knowing ‘holocaust scammer’ and profited personally from the ‘holocaust’ industry. (12) That said we at least owe him a nod in regard to his honesty about it, but it is worth bearing in mind that Cole, having been found out, is now seeking to carve out a new career niche for himself.

After a mensch has got to eat: hasn’t he?

I quote Cole’s own words about what he believes:

For the record, I never denied the Holocaust. My position was that Auschwitz was not an extermination camp, and the buildings displayed there as gas chambers are Soviet fakes. I never denied mass exterminations of Jews at camps like Treblinka and Sobibór.’ (13)

Cole is being typically disingenuous here, because he ‘denies’ that Auschwitz was used as a death camp. He claims Treblinka, Sobibor and (presumably) Belzec were ‘death camps’ and that he has ‘never denied this’. This is rank lunacy of the first order for the simple reason that the ‘evidence’ for these camps being part of a ‘mass extermination program’ targeted specifically at jews (aka the ‘holocaust’) is actually worse than the ‘evidence’ for Auschwitz, which Cole ‘denies’ was a ‘death camp’.

To be specific:

A) There is no physical evidence of such a homicidal purpose at the camps.

B) The ‘survivor’ testimony is even more insane and contradictory than the ‘survivor’ testimony at Auschwitz. I mean gassing people with the fumes of a captured Russian submarine’s diesel engine or killing them with electrical frying pans is hardly likely to be true in the first place let alone with the absence of other evidence (rather like the infamous ‘vacuum chambers’): is it?

C) The ‘survivors’ shouldn’t have survived a pure death camp according to the official narrative and simple applied logic.

D) The transit/logistics records directly contradict the whole claim (i.e. huge numbers of jews can be shown to have transited through these ‘pure death camps’ came out alive and been sent on to work camps a few days later).

Cole has got to know this given that the numerous book length revisionist studies that have come out since he was around (and are freely available on the internet) that his position is frankly laughable, but hey it is all about being ‘respectable’ and reinventing his career.

After all if Cole was really interested in historical truth; he’d be speaking about why serious scholars, in the true sense of the term, of the ‘holocaust’, such as Jurgen Graf, Thomas Kues and Carlo Mattogno, are wrong and he is right.

But hey it is easier to go and bash out easy-reading copy for Takimag than dare debate those three scholars than a comedian with a PhD like Michael Shermer. (14)

That’s of course after you try to argue for a European-American alliance with Israel, downplay and misrepresent jewish terrorism (historic and current) and try and make everyone feel sorry for your personal trials and tribulations in general.

Karl provides all references for the above here.

Now for the punchline: The Times of Israel has banned ColeStein from his blog posting there. Seems that Jews don’t trust his duplicity and obvious scumbaggery, either. At least he has his gig at TakiMag… at least for the moment.
