Looking back with hindsight fifteen years after the transformative events of September 11, 2001, the quality of life for most people has significantly declined since 9/11. Beginning immediately on the very day of infamy, the forces of authoritarian reaction began to ramp up the power of unbridled militarism abroad and greatly expanded police powers at home, all in the name of combating Islamic terrorism. But what really happened on 9/11? Who did what to whom? Who is telling the truth and who is lying?

In the fifteen years since 9/11 a vast and multi-faceted citizens’ movement has done much of the investigative work that our thoroughly corrupted governments refused to do on our behalf. Why have there been no genuine investigations by officialdom into the originating event of the Global War on Terror? How was the federal investigation of the 9/11 crime transformed into a federally orchestrated cover up?

The outcome of the people’s inquiry points compellingly to the conclusion that the real culprits behind the 9/11 attacks were not a group of Islamic jihadists acting alone out of no other motivation than religious zealotry. Rather, the dominant group directing the 9/11 false flag event was composed primarily of Israel First neoconservatives who sought to demonize Muslims in order to create the necessary malleable enemy required for their purposes. The real culprits of 9/11 used the event to create a replacement enemy meant to revitalize the vast military and national security apparatus that was fast becoming obsolete following the end of the Cold War with the demise of the Soviet Union.

One of the objectives of the 9/11 criminals was to traumatize whole populations thereby making them more compliant and subject to manipulation. From the opening hours of the 9/11 debacle, the murder and mayhem was immediately blamed, without any forensic investigation whatsoever, on Muslim extremists said to be hostile to the West. The event was thereby framed within a pre-existing geopolitical concept already dubbed by Samuel Huntington as “a clash of civilizations.” The effect of the instant interpretation was to cast the Jewish state’s regional enemies as part of a larger Islamic conspiracy to undermine “the West.”

Huntington_Clash_of_Civilizations_9eb86

Huntington’s Clash of Civilizations was meant to signal that the core political economy of the USA, the so-called permanent war economy, should continue even though the Cold War had ended. The fabricated story line introduced on 9/11 was consistent with Huntington’s assessment that the new post-Cold War conflicts would cut across religious and cultural spheres of human interaction. With Huntington and Bernard Lewis as their guides, the authors of the 9/11 psychological operation have developed a false concept of “the West” as an exclusively Judeo-Christian construct. This post-9/11 interpretation has involved the creation of a false assumption that the history of Islamic religion, culture and philosophy is entirely external to the history of Western Civilization.

The characterization of Islam as a new and aberrant strain of influence in Europe and throughout the so-called “West” misrepresents the deep history of cross-cultural interaction. The Zionist-directed campaign to mischaracterize Muslims as a recent and alien injection into Western Civilization fails to take into account the importance of Islamic advances in mathematics, architecture, medicine and art in the genesis of the European Renaissance. As Edward Said has reminded us, there is an especially rich heritage in the Iberian peninsula of cross-fertilization between Jewish, Christian and Muslim scholars. Their collaborative exchanges flourished especially in Cordoba, the Iberian jewel of the Islamic caliphate of Al-Andalus.

Since 2001 the culprits of 9/11 have hired, armed, organized, and directed various mercenary proxy armies that fight under Islamic flags. With assistance being channeled especially through the CIA and Mossad safe haven of Saudi Arabia, these mercenary forces have done the bidding of their Zio-American patrons. Western-supported mercenary forces, including al-Qaeda and its supposed antagonistic cousin the “Islamic State” [ISIL, ISIS, IS, Daesh], have been deployed in a series of false flag terror events designed to keep alive anti-Muslim fear and loathing in Western minds.

Moreover, units of the so-called “Islamic State”, which funnel stolen oil to the European Union through Turkey, are regularly deployed throughout the Grand Chessboard of Eurasia. The aim is to give justification for Western military operations aimed ultimately at preparing the ground for the expansion of Greater Israel. The world’s dominant military-industrial complex has been covertly harnessed to this project of expansion. A crucial part of this network of military-industrial power lies in the Zionist-controlled mainstream media and institutions of higher education. These agencies have been co-opted to become instruments of the Islamophobic propaganda so crucial to preparing Western public opinion for aggressive invasions of Muslim countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya and most recently Syria.

The deceptive façade of the Global War on Terror is meant to disguise this military and psychological system of aggressive warfare combined with engineered pollution of the mental environment with the toxin of hyped up Islamophobia.

Dr. Kevin Barrett has characterized the Global War on Terror as a global war on Muslims for Israel. Noam Chomsky disagrees. He has made himself a very significant nemesis to Kevin Barrett. Barrett is one of the most unrelenting researchers and publicists in the 9/11 Truth Movement. So far Chomsky has been quite effective in deploying his enormous prestige to prevent the citizens’ investigation on 9/11 from receiving a fair hearing, but especially in the foundation-funded platforms of progressive, Left, and anti-war activism.

This opening part introduces my essay, “9/11 and the Zionist Question: Is Noam Chomsky a Disinfo Agent for Israel?” In due course the larger paper will be published in its entirety here at American Herald Tribune. This essay explores the antagonisms between Kevin Barrett and Noam Chomsky with particular emphasis on the research and scholarship on false flag terrorism and especially on the contested events of 9/11. The argument is advanced that Prof. Chomsky has quite purposely promoted an agenda of cover up on 9/11, reducing himself to the level of crude propagandists and paid proponents of the dominant 9/11 narrative such as Jonathan Kay and Michael Shermer.

In the fifteen years since 9/11 the concerted and continuing cover up of the truth has become an enormous element of the overall 9/11 crime. Growing understanding of the role of mass media and institutions of higher learning in maintaining this cover up is fast eroding the credibility of these strategic agencies. The health of free and democratic societies depends on an informed citizenry who more often than not are deceived by the very agencies supposed to be responsible for public education.

“Noam Chomsky as the Left’s Trojan Horse” will appear in the next part.

Between a Rock and a Hard Place: The Oregon Standoff. Part I.

By Scott Bennett

The metal flavor of blood and the hard truth of silence was all the dusty denim-clad rancher had won as the double courtroom doors closed behind the exiting attorneys fondling his family’s case.

 January, 8th, 2016

full-pg-31-oregon-1-ap-1452263896

He was alone, and felt it deeply, like a far echo sounding in an immensely vast cavern.  He tilted his Stetson to the ground, looked at the burgundy courtroom carpet, and thought…and thought…and thought some more.

How could it have come to this?  Did he miss something? What just happened?  After all, his family had worn the military uniform for a hundred years and pridefully accented their walls and desks with the old pictures, medals, framed citations, and faded ribbons, along with the music of heroic, quiet, and laughing stories of men acting like boys during war, which always changed rooms and lives.

He recounted the basic facts, biting his lip and squinting at floor as he strained his thoughts slowly, and re-ordered in his mind every step taken — every action, every word said, every judgment hammered.

Let’s see, for the last ten years, he thought to himself, somehow he had been — although he didn’t know it — connected to bearded Middle Eastern, Arabic chanting terrorists firing machine guns in shopping malls and bombing marathons; then grimacing at the thought’s odor and shaking his head in bemusement.  Oh please, come on, of course it was insane.  Surely no one in their right mind could think a cowboy boot wearing, beer drinking, rodeo-howling rancher was a danger to children, his people, his town, his country…but yet this was precisely what the Department of Justice lawyer had so many times inferred in his loud, angry syllables and resentful tone as he repeated the terrorism statute definition used to box-in the rancher.   So it had been said, and since words make law, they mean something, regardless.

It would have been surreal and laughable if it wasn’t so repugnantly real and deadly serious.  After all, men with guns and blue windbreakers were soon coming to force him back into a jail cell, then turn around and push his wife and their history of existence off the farm; and perhaps eventually erase him from life as his years faded.  That is, unless he did something.  But what was he to do now?

How do you get back on the roller coaster after being told to exit to the right, other than refusing to get out of your seat?  That’s it, he thought, he just wouldn’t move and let them come to him, so he could  explain it all over again.  This time, he would tell them what they missed the first time…yes, that must have been the reason for their screw up and slandering of them.  But then again, he knew human lust and desire for power and laziness — the opiates of politics — and when combined with government authority, it became a deadly and paralyzing tonic.

He shivered again, and felt the anger begin to rise like it never had before.  Suddenly his jaw clenched as he heard a familiar drill sergeant somewhere in his mind calling out numbers in his head and speaking the words:

One!…Lighting strikes land, starts fire.

Two!…Boy follows dad’s orders and ignites a counter-action fire

to contain the burn, and save the feed and animals from starving.

Three!…Bureau of Land Management staff file complaint, alleging a crime.

Four!…No crime found, charges dropped by District Attorney.  Five years go by.

Five!…Somehow, Department of Justice thinks they know better, contact him by letter, then file another court action—this time accusing him of terrorism activity in relation to the fire, and calling it arson instead of a controlled burn.  Strange, and wrong.  But…

Six!…Goes to court, judge keeps out key facts, attorney falls apart—or intentionally throws him under the buss—and somehow the jury get find him and his son guilty.  Cold shock, gaping mouth amazement…but there has to be some kind of fix or appeal… surely.

Seven!…Goes into sentencing, lies told, confusion, hustled off to jail.

Eight!…Now another letter demanding a second bite of the apple and more time added unto father and son’s sentence? 

Something deep in his instincts founded in the primordial passion to defend wife and children began to growl, and the thought cleared…Now the real agenda: theft of property and destruction of life.  Isn’t this war?  And in war, aren’t you either alive and victorious or dead and defeated?

He would not bow down without a fight.

His blood ran in the creeks and fed the grass and cows and had nourished the land and lives there for over one hundred years….this was beyond life, beyond body, beyond government, this was his time to stand, and show his ancestors what they created in him.  For his God and for everything right and true and good, he had to.  To fail to, was not just un-American, it was inhuman.

He would get a few hits in, that’s for sure, if for nothing else than for his ancestors who first settled the ranch and planted their blood in the communality.  Time would tell.

Most likely these, or something like them, were the thoughts in the minds of the Oregon Rancher father-and-son duo now surrounded by friends and strangers wearing guns and camouflage, and grimly nodding their commitment to him through low country drawls about God and country.

If anything encapsulates the unfolding Oregon drama, this might.

No doubt these may have been some of the thoughts, images, memories, and emotions that rushed and pounded through the minds of the rancher and his son in Oregon as they pondered their fates, and that of their family.

There are three things to consider in order to understand this: the full dramatic history of this event, the laws and interests involved, and the possible future scenarios being prepared.  After all, there are global implications, not just American, should an American civil war percolate.

The Temper of Democracy

Over the past couple of days, a seemingly small mole hill has suddenly transformed into a violently erupting volcano, to the terrifying surprise of almost every shallow journalist, Constitutional lawyer, and plastic smiled politician in Washington DC.  In short, it has instantly and irrevocably changed America’s constitutional perspective, by forcing Americans to see fellow citizens — branded and prosecuted and imprisoned as terrorists — in a a kind of “perfect storm” of ignorance, government abuse, and lawlessness—and I use the term lawlessness multidimensionally.

It is easy to be blown away on the strong howling winds of terrorist fears and intimidated silent by the thunderous cachophy of tyrannical patriotism.  But we are not kites, we are men.  And as a military man myself, I am by training and temperament inclined to instinctively not back down or retreat from a rising challenge, but instead meet it head on, either to harmonize and diplomatically engage, or to conquer and destroy.  In the gladiatorial arena of willpower, either the citizen is master over the government, or the slave—there is no other role.

If Americans have a right to engage in civil disobedience, then government has an obligation to endure that civil disobedience.  That’s how the process of “making known and seeking the redress of grievances” works in a Democratic Republic, and it is essential for government agencies and actors to be willingly compliant with this.  And if they refuse to be compliant, this means by definition they are tyrants—which warrants civil war or death.  One or the other.

To fully understand and resolve the Oregon stand-off situation, requires that we analyze the history and dynamics of the problem, the competing parties, and the friction between their competing interests. The parameters of the discussion must be justice and law, with human life, liberty, happiness, being the justification for the discussion.

In America, we pride ourselves on the notion of “law and order”, but admittedly our own past examples of engaging them diplomatically have ended badly:  the Whiskey Rebellion, the Civil War, the Branch Davidians at Waco Texas — are just a few of the motley crew of memories in our Republic’s vaults.

Now we see and hear at most every corner journalists scrambling to brand the Bundy occupiers and protesters as right wing, gun wielding, hillbilly, backwoodsmen, bark eating, whiskey still running terrorists.  The facts show otherwise, but nevertheless the caustic language and propaganda indicates a larger menace: the agenda of a police state crushing all forms of dissent in the United States.  Make no mistake about it.  This is a political tug of war, with one winner, and the law itself is the rope.  The only thing keeping the protesters alive is the incompetence of the Obama Administration, and the conviction of the patriots standing in the shadows.

Brainwashing: 911 & the Holohoax by Alfred Schaefer (Video)

911BrainwashingHoloHdr
9/11 Brainwashing part 1
9/11 Brainwashing part 2
ATSmlEdScreenshot
Editor’s Note: Brainwashing: 9/11 & the Holohoax – a two part video by German producer Alfred Schaefer – is, without a doubt, one of the best visual productions to date outlining the massive deceptions on the part of the Zionist Jew criminal cartel now in control of the majority of Western civilization. Via its powerful media control, its control of western political leaders, and the power of its purse to wreak havoc across the globe using whatever ruthless tactics it so desires in order to create chaos, confusion and fear in the minds and hearts of the common people, these two videos give the viewer a comprehensive overview of just how the masses have been brainwashed over the past seventy years.
Schaefer’s 2-part video is amazingly well done and packed full with extensive footage relating to 9/11 and to the evidence surrounding the Holohoax that was revealed to the world during the famous Ernst Zundel trial in Canada throughout the 1980’s and ’90’s.
Brainwashing: 9/11 & the Holohoax reveals the endless deceptions, the blatant lies of the Zionist Jew media and those who labour to maintain the deception surrounding both these two world-changing events – the false claims of 6 Million Jews purported to have been gassed and “holocausted” in ovens during WW2 and the subsequent attack upon the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001.
Using footage related to the 9/11 false flag where those complicit attempt to divert attention from the skeptical public’s questioning by equating them with “Holocaust deniers” Schaefer is then able to show viewers the striking similarities between these two Zionist false flags and clearly outline why 1+1=2 and not 3.
These videos illuminate with increasing intensity the dark shroud of lies that the Zionist criminal cartel continually uses to cover up their own diabolic actions and one cannot watch them without coming away feeling that all which Schaefer has presented as further evidence of these two massive cover-ups makes perfect sense in light events that have transpired since 1945.
Viewers are urged to pass these videos on to friends and those who are still in doubt about both these cataclysmic events that are driving the world further and further to the brink of global disaster.

US and ‘partners’ launch airstrikes on ISIS targets in Syria

Published September 23, 2014

RadicalNewsHdr

 The US military and partner nations from the anti-ISIS coalition have launched the first attacks on Islamic State targets in Syria, the Pentagon has confirmed.

The airstrikes against the Islamic State targets are currently underway in Syria, according to a Pentagon official.The strikes on targets in Syria reportedly involve a mix of fighter, bomber, and tomahawk land attack missiles.

“I can confirm that US military and partner nation forces are undertaking military action against ISIL (ISIS/IS) terrorists in Syria using a mix of fighter, bomber and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles,” Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby said in a statement.

US military & partner nation forces have begun striking ISIL targets in Syria using mix of fighters, bombers and Tomahawk missiles.

6:30 PM – 22 Sep 2014Arlington, VA, United States

“The decision to conduct theses strikes was made earlier today by the US Central Command commander under authorization granted him by the commander in chief. We will provide more details later as operationally appropriate,” he added.

According to NBC News, the US military is planning to attack up to 20 targets in Syria, including “training sites, headquarters of Sunni fighters and troop encampments.”

A US official told ABC News that up to 20 locations have been targeted in the airstrikes in and around Raqqa. Tomahawk missiles have been fired from at least one ship in the Red Sea. The source also said that Arab nations participating in the airstrikes will be dropping bombs. According to Jonathan Karl, chief White House correspondent for ABC News, five Arab nations are taking part in the first round of airstrikes in Syria: Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.

In the meantime, a US official speaking to Reuters confirmed the participation of Arab partners in the attack, but refused to specify who those partners are.

CENTCOM says the decision to conduct airstrikes was made under authorization granted by the US president.

Given that these operations are ongoing, we are not in a position to provide additional details at this time.

6:39 PM – 22 Sep 2014

The attack follows President Obama’s speech earlier this month, during which he said that the US was prepared to “conduct a systematic campaign of airstrikes” against Islamic State terrorists “wherever they are.”

“That means I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL (ISIS/IS) in Syria as well as Iraq,” Obama said on September 10. The US military has already carried out over 200 strikes on Islamic State targets in Iraq.

The Syrian government was willing to cooperate in coordinating strikes on Islamic jihadists which the country has been battling against for over three years, but US officials rejected any possibility of such cooperation. Any strikes on Syrian soil without Damascus’ consent will be considered an act of aggression, Syria has warned.

Washington should respect the sovereignty of Syria in its attempts to deal with the Islamic State, Russia has warned repeatedly. Moscow previously expressed concern that US airstrikes may target not only the Islamic State, but also government forces loyal to President Assad.

Kourosh Ziabari Interview with Canadian Professor Denis Rancourt – Fars News Agency

KouroshInterviewRancourtHdr

RPEdNew400 copy

Editor’s Note: The following interview with Professor Rancourt is undoubtedly one of the finest contributions toward a greater understanding of how the West has been slowly taken over by the Zionist agenda. Whether we wish to view it (as Professor Rancourt appears to), as the American Empire using Israel for its own greater hegemonic agenda or whether we tend to see it as World Jewry’s take-over of the American government via stealth in order to commandeer its resources and exploit them for Zionism’s global conquest, Rancourt’s analysis of how this process has unfolded to the ongoing detriment of the Palestinian people is superlative.
 
The interview also succinctly explains the depth and degree of collusion which the various Zionist forces and their sycophants here in Canada went to in order to illegally remove Professor Rancourt from his academic position at the University of Ottawa and then to further exacerbate his unjust treatment by pursuing him with a defamation suit that basically bankrupt the man. Such extremely vexatious acts on the part of Allan Rock and the University of Ottawa, aided and abetted by Canada’s Zionist-controlled media, border on sadism and are a vivid reminder of just how cruel and criminal the Zionist cartel can be when it comes to protecting its own racket of death and destruction at any cost should Canadians have the audacity to exhibit their lawful constitutional right to freedom of expression. In this case Professor Rancourt’s only “crime” was to question the right of Israel’s ongoing genocide of the Palestinian people.
 
I suppose Denis Rancourt might be expected to consider himself lucky that he wasn’t also slapped with a sec. 319(2) Criminal Code of Canada “Hate Propaganda” charge on top of all the other woes he’s been subjected to by the Zionist-controlled judiciary here in Canada. I’m sure that they would love to send him to jail for a couple of years just as they are trying to do to me in order to reinforce their intimidation and threats to all of Canada’s academia never to question their authority or their evil designs.
 
Professor Rancourt has taken a courageous stand and like myself he needs your help in order to defend himself against all of these spurious charges that have resulted from his expressing his opinions on matters relevant to Canada’s democratic principles.

Kourosh Ziabari – Fars News Agency: A Canadian scholar and academic, who was fired from the university where he was teaching because of his pro-Palestinian viewpoints, believes the US government is funding and supporting Israel for its continued bloodletting in the Middle East.

According to Prof. Denis Rancourt, Israel’s plan in the Middle East is ethnic cleansing and the total obliteration of Palestine and its citizens in order to realize a colonial, imperial agenda backed by the US military, economic and finance empire.

“Israel’s program is to eradicate or neutralize all Palestinians who make claim to a home in Palestine. This is exactly what Israel has been doing since before its artificial creation,” said Prof. Rancourt in an exclusive interview with Fars News Agency.

“Israel’s program is planned incremental dispossession and an ongoing attempted genocide. This has been repeatedly and explicitly expressed by the Zionist architects and executioners,” he noted.

Prof. Denis Rancourt has also praised the resistance movement in the Gaza Strip for its steadfastness against the Israeli aggression during the past two months, maintaining that it was awe-inspiring that Hamas could kill some 70 invading Israeli soldiers.

Denis Rancourt is a former professor of physics at the University of Ottawa. In the fall of 2008, he was removed from all teaching duties under the pretext that he had granted A+ grades to 23 students in one course during the winter 2008 semester; however, it’s quite clear to everybody that his outspoken criticism of Israel and his pro-Palestinian activism had triggered his dismissal from the university. Prof. Rancourt’s classes were always attended by tens of students and he was considered as one of the popular university professors at the Faculty of Science.

Rancourt has published more than 100 academic papers. He was a member of Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Physics and the Ottawa-Carleton Geoscience Centre. He is the author of the book “Hierarchy and Free Expression in the Fight Against Racism.”

During the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip that just ended on August 26 following the victory of Hamas and the declaration of ceasefire between the Israeli regime and the resistance movement, FNA did an interview with Prof. Denis Rancourt on the influence of the Israeli lobby over the media, politicians and universities in the West, the history of Israel-Canada relations and the international reactions to the recent Israeli war on Gaza. The following is the text of this in-depth interview.

Q: What’s your viewpoint regarding the influence of the Israeli lobby on the universities and academic unions in the West, especially in the North America? The case of your dismissal from your position as a professor at the University of Ottawa was simply one of numerous instances showing that the Israeli lobby can easily manipulate the university officials in the West into making illegal decisions and expelling the disobedient academicians, just like the Prof. Steven Salaita who has been recently fired from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for his comments criticizing the Israeli massacre in the Gaza Strip. How has Israel gained such an influence over the academic institutions in the West?

A: The Israel Lobby has the role of chief-whip for the US military-economic-finance empire; Empire, for short. That is, the Lobby ensures doctrinal discipline among Western, that is, US-aligned politicians, intellectuals, and the media, regarding the Empire’s Middle East policy. I mean “intellectual” in the broad sense of any professional who has influence, and “media” in the broad sense of anyone who communicates to others.

The Empire’s main geopolitical focus presently is the Middle East, where the Empire is dedicated to actively and continuously prevent liberation and coalescence of Arab nations, so as to keep control of the territory and the energy resources. To achieve this, the Empire’s main policy in the Middle East is Israel, which is charged with continual war and sabotage against all Middle Eastern entities that would vie for independence from the Empire.

Thus, the Empire, via Israel, is embarked on a vicious and murderous project without an end in the Middle East, and this unsavory project must be sold to the Empire’s home populations, including both managers and ordinary citizens. That is the role of the Israel Lobby; to sell Israel and the continuous and deliberate carnage as acceptable and unavoidable.

That is why the Israel Lobby is actively engaged is creating Islamophobia, in exaggerating anti-Semitism, in constructing Nazi-holocaust remembrance, in suppressing academic freedom, in suppressing freedom of the press, in “finding” and pursuing alleged “terrorists”, in developing anti-speech [or] “anti-hate” laws, in promoting cultural ties with Israel, in attacking Muslim associations, and so on.

As such, the work of the Israel Lobby includes hundreds of ongoing campaigns to intimidate, discipline, fire, and vilify academics who dare to be critical of Israel or of US Middle East policy. The list of shut-out and targeted academics is a long one and includes the well-known cases of Joel Kovel, Ward Churchill, Norman Finkelstein, James Petras, Terri Ginsberg, William Robinson, David F. Noble, Steven Salaita, Iymen Chehade, and many others. The more an academic is threatening to the Lobby, the more aggressively that academic is attacked.

My own case is also an example. I was a tenured Full Professor of physics at the University of Ottawa in Canada’s capital city. I am an internationally recognized researcher and I taught in both the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Arts. I was publicly critical of the university president’s paid trip to Israel. I invited Palestinian speakers into my classrooms to talk about Gaza, and geopolitical analysts who were critical of Israel. These moves led to condemnation of me in the Zionist mainstream media, and to discipline, which was overturned. In 2008, a new university president – Allan Rock – who is a staunch and unconditional supporter of Israel and who had been Canada’s Zionist ambassador to the UN, became immediately motivated to fire me, tenure or not, and irrespective of my popular courses and my large science research funding.

A.RockMug

With the help of an entire team using specially-hired union-busting lawyers, after contriving for years including intensive covert surveillance of me using a hired-student spy to monitor my every spoken and written word and my every activity on campus and at other university campuses, the university finally settled on the false pretext for dismissal of alleging that I had improperly assigned high grades to all 23 students in an advanced physics course. They needed a “clean” pretext that they hoped would be supported by public opinion and that would not bring out all of their dirt. When public opinion and some mainstream media sided with me instead, a high-profile Zionist columnist at the New York Times suddenly wrote not-one but two articles to discredit me, and was invited to Canada to falsely defame me, regarding my teaching, on a trend-setting Canadian TV talk show whose producers are Zionists.

Even after I was fired, as I continued to be publicly critical of the institution, the university funded a large defamation lawsuit against me which, after almost four years, has entirely washed-out my personal savings, and over which I was ordered to pay a total of legal costs and damages in excess of one million dollars, that I can never pay. I am presently struggling to generate the funds to pay the costs of court-transcripts for the appeal that has been filed. My funding campaign is endorsed by the Ontario Civil Liberties Association, which also has a campaign that condemns the university’s unlimited funding of the lawsuit against me using public money.

Although the university had many and mixed unstated and illegitimate reasons for wanting to fire me – such as my defiance and outspokenness in several areas, my popular courses and public events, and my support of student and community activism, I have no doubt that I was fired because the new Zionist university president Allan Rock – former Ambassador to the UN, and former Canadian federal government minister – wanted me out and silenced at any cost, and knew that he could count on support from the Zionist establishment. Under cross-examination, the dean testified that the pre-dismissal lockout of my graduate students and I from our laboratory was directed from above by Allan Rock. This president knew my firing would be seen as a good deed by the powerful Zionist establishment that he is part of. Years before I was ultimately fired, it had already been pronounced in the media that my firing was necessary and was desirable because of the “anti-Semitic” nature of my courses, to the great dismay and protests of many of my students.

After I was escorted off campus in handcuffs by police and charged with “trespassing” while I was still a tenured professor, and since my firing in 2009, Allan Rock has been systematically transforming the University of Ottawa into an institutional instrument at the service of Canada’s accelerating “globalist” agenda, and at the service of legitimizing Israel’s role in that agenda — rather than actually prioritizing the learning environment for students in Ottawa, an environment that is in dire need of an overhaul.

Allan Rock needed me out of the way. The Empire needs critics of the Empire out of the way. And the Israel Lobby needs anyone who threatens the acceptance of Israel’s crimes out of the way.

Q: Why has the criticism of Israel become so costly in the West? Why are the academicians, media personalities and other public figures who dare to question the policies and practices of Israel being immediately vilified and denigrated as anti-Semitist? Moreover, why don’t the mainstream media in the West ever give coverage to the viewpoints critical of Israel or exposing its violations of international law?

A: The mainstream media is a highly perfected arm of the Empire’s propaganda apparatus, as are Hollywood, the music industry, video games, and so on. The barely-maintained illusions of freedom of the press and of artistic freedom only make the propaganda more effective.

The propaganda apparatus is an integral part of the Empire’s military structure. The Israel Lobby is an added structure for direct and forceful control of politicians and intellectuals concerning the role of Israel as the Empire’s main thug in the Middle East.

The Empire’s Israel-based violent control in the Middle East, in turn, gives control over energy and wealth, via both the energy itself and energy transportation routes, and helps to ensure that the US-dollar remains the petro-dollar and, thus, the World currency, which the US prints at will.

In this way, the Empire both maintains its main instrument of global exploitation, namely finance-extortion based on the US-dollar and enforced with military might, and suppresses the development of its main competitors by strategically controlling the energy market via sanctions, pricing, and directed profits. That is the Empire’s working theory, which is realistically achievable thanks to absolute military dominance.

Within this scheme, the Israel Lobby at home is in a symbiotic relation with the Empire. The two are inseparable as long as the Empire’s main geopolitical focus is the Middle East, and as long as the Empire’s main policy in the Middle East is Israel. This is why one finds a strong and visible Israel Lobby satellite in every Western nation that is aligned with the Empire: Canada, France, Australia, and so on.

The two elements that give the Israel Lobby its raison d’etre – namely, the Empire’s main geopolitical focus on the Middle East, and Israel as the Empire’s main policy in the Middle East – are not necessarily good for the Empire. But the Israel Lobby has gotten too powerful; to the point of being able to largely dictate the Empire’s geopolitical priorities, and the Empire’s goals.

Thus, the Israel Lobby has to a large extent overrun the US democracy. It is not presently possible for US politicians to objectively and freely discuss Israel’s role and the Empire’s foreign policy. Virtually no US politician has the backbone to do so. US critics of Israel who are sufficiently threatening are crushed, and the US establishment fully participates in these mobbings.

When the stakes are so high, it is impossible for the Israel Lobby to relax its aggressive stance against all ideological threats. The Lobby considers its intimidation campaigns to be necessary for its own survival. It uses bribery, extortion, and propaganda at every level to discipline all who need to be reminded of which peoples most need to be killed on the planet.

Q: Canada has usually been one of the major advocates and supporters of the Tel Aviv regime since its establishment in 1948, either financially, politically or militarily and has always justified its racist policies in the Occupied Territories publicly. Somewhere in a 2011 article, you noted that Canada does not have much significant trade ties with Israel, and is a net exporter of oil and gas itself. So, why do you think the Canadian politicians continue to offer their “unwavering support” to Israel and rationalize its atrocities against the besieged people of Gaza? Why does Canada always lobby to dissuade world countries from voting against Israel in the UN resolutions? In what ways does Canada benefit from backing Israel?

A: Interestingly, it was Allan Rock – the same man who engineered my firing from the University of Ottawa – who, in 2004, under Paul Martin’s Liberal government and as Canada’s Ambassador to the UN, changed Canada’s longstanding position on Israel from abstaining on human rights resolutions for Palestine to being one of the few countries in the World that vote with the US and Israel against UN human rights resolutions for Palestine.

The complete selling of Canada to the US started prior to Martin, notably at the hands of Conservative Prime Minister Brian “free trade” Mulroney who thereby destroyed the Conservative party for more than a decade. Martin continued the job of selling Canada. Paul Martin engineered a takeover of the Liberal Party of Canada from the last Prime Minister Jean Chrétien who was moderately independent, or wanted to appear to be, and Martin proceeded to wreck that party into oblivion, with the help of other Zionists such as Rock and Harvard-based import Michael Ignatieff who also wrote academic arguments to legitimize torture “in an age of terror”, and others. At present, all three major parties [of] Conservative, NDP, and Liberal are led by ultra-Zionists, which is no accident. Harper, in particular, vehemently demonizes Iran, in what can only be understood as a criminally irresponsible call for a war of aggression, in line with a well-known Israeli desire.

The reason that Canada gives unconditional diplomatic support to Israel is the same as with all states aligned with the Empire. There is no choice on that issue because Israel is a major component of the Empire’s World-domination apparatus. The Israel Lobby is existentially committed to keeping things that way. The widespread tolerance and political adoration of the anti-democratic Israel Lobby in the US suggests that it is now not unreasonable to entertain an analysis of the Empire as a US-Israel Empire, as though the elite-bosses that run the global military-finance exploitation enterprise had effectively merged across US-Israel lines.

The other main Western states vie to align themselves in order to be on the receiving side of the Empire’s global exploitation project. This alignment is the most disgusting and vicious enactment of global racism in human history – largely surpassing its immediate predecessor that was the British Empire – that directly targets indigenous populations in the developing and emerging world, whether or not these populations support resistance movements. In this regard, a color-coded world map of diplomatic stance regarding Israel is identical to a world map of the global exploitation by the states aligned with the Empire.

Canada, in particular, is more than aligned. Canada is truly a vassal state of the US, with virtually complete integration in the political, corporate, security, military, cultural, and intelligentsia spheres. It is not uncommon for high-ranking “Canadian” politicos to have been trained at Harvard. The entertainment and sports enterprises are seamlessly the same, except for Quebec to some degree. This deepening integration has been accompanied by a loss of Canadian nationalism, a dramatically increased Israel Lobby presence, a dumbing down of the provincial education systems, an abandonment of natural-resources ownership, a near-total loss of resistance to foreign corporate ownership, frightening mimicry in the cultural, political, statutory, military, police, etc., fields, and so on.

Years ago, as one personal anecdote, I was shocked to find that the airport security in Ottawa, for an internal flight in Canada, was being managed by a US firm, that the security employees were US citizens, spoke with heavy US accents, and did not speak French – Canada is bilingual, and Ottawa is its capital. I was on stolen Canadian soil being processed by US security personnel. That is now the norm. Canadian citizens have a lot of work to do if they want to effectively oppose US and Israeli crimes against humanity.

Of course the local Canadian establishment needs to benefit from Canada being a vassal state of the Empire. So your question of how does Canada benefit is a fair one. The first answer is that Canada is allowed to share in the plunder practiced by the Empire, to a limited and controlled degree. In addition, Canada is given a share of the Empire’s military economy, in terms of military manufacturing contracts, and is temporarily allowed to have a First World standard of living, even though it must permit its natural resources to be plundered.

Also, Canada is a major producer of oil from tar sands that are relatively expensive to exploit. Wars and imposed sanctions in the Middle East increase the price of oil, which serves the Canadian energy sector well, in terms of political benefits. The price of gas is also increased, which inadvertently serves Russia. Thus, Russia must be sanctioned and cut off from the European market. Enter Ukraine, etc. Energy is geopolitics and Canada, as a major energy producer, “chooses” to be on the side of the big guns.

Q: What do the ordinary Canadian citizens, and the young generation of Canadian people think about Israel and its ongoing campaign of carnage and genocide in the besieged Gaza Strip? Do they sympathize with the major Canadian parties, including the Conservatives, Liberals and the NDP in their unwarranted support for Israel?

A: Political participation in Canada is a farce. By statute – thanks to former Liberal Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau – all local political candidates must be approved and certified by the party leader. Therefore, unlike in the UK where local party members can choose their representatives and where parliamentary rule actually means something, there is no representative democracy whatsoever in Canada. It does not take a PhD in political science to understand this. The employment and career of each Member of Parliament depends on obeying party discipline, and the party bosses are selected and positioned by powerful private interests predominantly represented by the Israel Lobby.

Ordinary Canadians, young and old, understand that politics does not include them. Consequently, political participation is low. The smaller the citizen’s possible influence, the less [they] participate, logically. In Canada – like in most places where citizens do not feel overly threatened by their governments or by foreign influences or by war – effective political allegiance is hired directly using widespread partisan employment, by the government, the public institutions, the private corporations, the hired lobbies, and the non-government organizations. In addition, superficial popular acceptance of fake agendas is bought via disguised propaganda projected by the “educational” system, the media, and the hired “experts” from all sectors. This works brilliantly because most professional workers are fully indoctrinated into the system.

Among aware Canadians, however, there is great concern about Israel’s crimes in Gaza. This concern and resulting outrage are significant, as is evident from the massive media and public-relations counter campaigns to legitimize Israel’s war crimes.

Canadian civil society is recognizing and organizing against the Israel genocide that continues to unfold. There has been a significant backlash against the public positions of the leaders of the three major parties, and this backlash has caused the NDP in particular to do some damage-control. A Member of Parliament even resigned from the NDP over the issue, which is a first in Canada. Furthermore, in reporting the carnage in Gaza, the mainstream media was feeling the pressure to not completely follow the most absurd dictates of the Israel Lobby regarding media strategy.

The recent public demonstrations in support of Gaza, held in every major Canadian city, were massive, by Canadian standards. The pro-Palestine demonstrations that I attended in Ottawa had hundreds and thousands of participants and were among the largest that I have ever witnessed. More importantly, the demonstrators were from across Canadian society and were profoundly moved and committed, more than I have ever seen for any broad Canadian foreign policy matter. Consequently, the mainstream media was forced to report these demonstrations in a somewhat balanced fashion, under the threat of losing credibility.

Thus, there is a significant enough gap, between the extreme Zionism of the political party leaders and public opinion on Gaza, that it is possible that there could be a large and lasting popular backlash that would change the public political discourse and force the Lobby to be less overt. I more than hope that this backlash will be of formidable magnitude and that it will occur at an accelerated pace, in order to create and recover the dignity of Canadians, to bring Canadians into the World, and to bring maximum support to the Palestinian resistance.

Q: During its more than 50 days of incursion into the Gaza Strip, Israel continually bombed the civilian areas, hospitals, mosques and schools. The deliberate targeting of the civilians is a crime under international law. Why is Israel persistent on violating international law while its leaders know what they’re doing is not humane and defendable? Is it because Israel has been enjoying immunity from accountability thanks to the public diplomatic, political and financial support it receives from the United States?

A: It is criminally and morally disgusting that Israel continued to bomb Gaza during the negotiations for the agreement that led to a halt to further Israeli attacks for an “unlimited period”. It is utterly disgusting that Israel murdered the wife and a daughter and a son of the Hamas military commander Mohammed Deif during negotiations. Israel continued to murder Hamas opponents during negotiations. This is abominable. It is difficult to comprehend this degree of disregard by Israel for basic human decency, not to mention international law. This tells us that Israel never negotiated in good faith, and that the “negotiated” agreement cannot possibly represent any measure of interim justice.

The Palestinian resistance in Gaza is awe-inspiring, having killed some 70 invading soldiers that were part of one of the most technologically advanced militaries in the World, and Gazans having sustained unspeakable civilian death, displacement, and destruction. However, Israel is in fact mainly contained by the global political and popular reactions to its crimes. The US cannot afford to convince the World that it is a genocidal-maniac nation, whether it is or not. This would seriously impair the Empire, domestically, with allies, and in its arenas of exploitation.

This is why the Empire funds and supports Israel for the constant bloodletting in the Middle East, and covertly trains and funds proxy thugs wherever it cannot sell a direct intervention, such as in Syria. Make no mistake, the US runs a global empire, with over 1,000 military bases spread in every corner of the globe, but it cannot be perceived in Western circles as an outright purveyor of ruthless and unlimited terror. Just don’t ask Latin Americans what they know from lived experience.

In this regard, a reality that protects the world from US-Israeli ravages is the fact that, more and more, there are Muslim, Latin American, etc., populations in the US and in the aligned countries, such as the Muslim citizens of the UK, and the Latin Americans in the US. This, in turn, explains the growing government fixations on preventing immigration and systemically targeting profiled refugees for deportation. It also explains the police-state occupation and incarceration in the US of the Black and Hispanic less-integrated social classes.

Basically, all the survival, self-defense, and liberation struggles against and from-within the Empire share a common oppressor. These struggles can greatly benefit from Western middle class allies, and from Western middle class indignation. The elite management class has connections to the professional class, which is largely from the middle class, and so on. In this way, “public opinion”, beyond simply most members of the public having some superficial opinion, can pressure towards rejecting the most egregious abuses of the Empire.

Q: In response to Israel’s deadly military operation against the Gaza Strip, the United States simply said that Israel has a right to defend itself, and a right to exist. Are these rights, including a right to exist, contingent upon the destruction of the entire civilian infrastructure in a coastal territory that has been under siege for some 7 years, and the blowing up of its unarmed citizens? Do the US politicians really think this way or are pretending that they’re not aware of the realities of Gaza on the ground?

A: The “right to exist” and “right to defend itself” postures of Israel are ridiculous sophistries that a child can recognize as such. Israelis have a right to not be displaced arbitrarily without a just process. That process must weigh all the facts related to Israel’s long-term genocidal policies and actions of population cleansing and annexing of territory. It must also respect international law, and respect unrescinded UN resolutions. And, it cannot reward continued violations by Israel of the said UN resolutions regarding territorial lines.

The Israeli spin concocted to justify Israel’s gruesome crimes of war is so insulting to the intellect that in itself it could be considered a crime, a crime of language, if it made any sense to have such a category of crimes. Indeed, if it were advisable to condone the development of a criminal law for “hate speech”, then Israel’s spin, uttered in the context of its massacres in Gaza, should certainly qualify as “hate speech”.

As usual, Israel turns everything on its head. The Israel Lobby seeks “hate speech” laws to be enacted in all the aligned states, to prevent criticism of Israel, as being “anti-Semitic” speech of course. This explicitly exists in France, and persists in Canada, where one elderly Canadian citizen was sent to jail in Germany for years for printed publications denying “the” holocaust. Here, the Lobby finds allies in well-meaning middle-class advocates of purified language who wrongly and self-servingly believe that racism can and should be reduced by strict language and social behaviour codes.

If it were serious about discussing rights, Israel would admit the Palestinian rights of return and of self-determination. It would respect the right to life and liberty enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It would respect the Geneva Conventions on military occupation. It would release all of its Palestinian prisoners. It would stop using its mass-killing machine against civilians, and so on. After that, it would also agree to be judged independently in making substantial reparations to all Palestinians, especially those occupied and the refugees.

Q: The United Nations has just appointed a fact-finding committee to probe into Israel’s possible war crimes during its recent military operation against the Gaza Strip. Do you see the political will and determination in the United Nations to really hold Israel accountable and investigate its criminal conduct in an impartial and fair way?

A: We’ll see. The more interesting question is whether citizens will provide a significant backlash if the commissioners do not properly do what must be done. And, will Israel and the Empire succeed in derailing this UN commission of inquiry into Israel’s war crimes?

Will this commission allow the UN to salvage some credibility? Will the Lobby succeed in its personal attacks against the commission’s chairman? Will anything significant on the ground come from the legalistic exercise?

Nothing significant has come from the UN in the past. This Gaza massacre was as criminal and as evil as the previous one. The only evolution has been the development of the remarkable Gazan military resistance, from killing three invading soldiers in the previous land incursion, to some 70 Israeli soldiers this time. We can only hope that this progression will continue, enough to deter Israel.

Q: What do you think is the reason for Israel’s obduracy in keeping the blockade of Gaza Strip in place and its continued refusal to lift it? Is the siege going to serve certain purposes, such as the demonization of Hamas and turning the residents of Gaza against it?

A: Israel’s program is to eradicate or neutralize all Palestinians who make claim to a home in Palestine. This is exactly what Israel has been doing since before its artificial creation. Israel’s program is planned incremental dispossession and an ongoing attempted genocide. This has been repeatedly and explicitly expressed by the Zionist architects and executioners.

Over 300 Nazi Holocaust survivors and their descendants recently signed an open letter, published as an advertisement in the New York Times, calling what Israel is doing what it is, genocide. Israel’s attempted genocide of Palestinians is also expressly cheered-on by many Israeli citizens and by members of the Zionist diaspora of all religions.

Therefore, the Israeli apartheid is not meant as a sustained apartheid. It is an increment in the attempted genocide that accompanies the racist pillaging of land and resources. The massacres in Gaza and the collective punishments against Gazans can be understood only in this context.

As such, Israel will continue the gruesome intimidations of all sorts, which are Israel’s history, and which are intended to cause Palestinians to flee from Palestine. Israel wants Gaza. And, Israel wants all Palestinians out of the greater Israel that it is creating.

The US accepts Israel’s crimes against Palestinians because the US “accepts” Israel’s conviction that this is necessary for Israel’s “security”. The US acceptance of the Zionist genocide is part of the negotiated understanding between the Empire and Israel. The US propaganda about seeking restraint is purely deflection and risk management for the Empire.

Furthermore, Israel knows that a real impediment to its greater design, its final solution, is Palestinian armed resistance, presently limited to Gaza. Israel, therefore, has an illegitimate military objective to strangle the armed resistance and to murder its leaders and closest enablers, and the Zionists willfully disregard international law to pursue this aim. It is a classic dirty war of extermination of popular armed resistance. If Israel cannot kill the armed resistance, then it plans to expel and kill the population that supports the resistance. In any case, it wants Gaza.

Within this criminal mentality, there is no way that Israel will voluntarily relax the blockade. The fight to dissolve the blockade, and even just to have Israel respect the general language of the ceasefire agreement to ease restrictions at the Gaza border crossings, will be continuous and arduous.

This is what Israel does. It strangles Palestinians. Only real pressures can slow Israel and, one day soon, turn it around. Things can happen. Populations can enforce democratic rule. Leaders can side with popular movements. Anything is possible when resisters everywhere become committed and determined. It happened in the recent past with liberation struggles everywhere when the British Empire was forced to retract, and with civil rights and democratized institutions in the 1960s. It’s happening in Latin America now. It’s happening on the streets. It can happen again and everywhere.

The peace they promise is never-ending war by John Kaminski

The peace they promise is never-ending war

 BELIEVING WHAT YOU READ IN THE NEWSPAPER WILL LEAD YOU TO AN EARLY GRAVE

By John Kaminski

If there were such a crime as treason by ignorance, most Americans would be guilty of it. But the worst kind of treason comes from those who know the truth but don’t speak it.

Throughout its history, but even more vividly in recent days, the United States has revealed itself to be a warmongering liar, with a president who is a proven criminal directing a heartless staff of homicidal maniacs, invading one defenseless country after another, blaming others for crimes the U.S. commits, and wreaking destruction and chaos that kills innocent people in one-sided wars that never seem to end.

Our leaders, with deliberate intent paid for by foreign special interests, are destroying our own country, by implementing measures unquestionably harmful to the interests of American citizens, while simultaneously praised by writers with big salaries in quest of fame and fortune at the expense of the truth. The latest atrocity is an Army document that calls for snipers to shoot the principal organizers of dissident political rallies <http://www.globalresearch.ca/police-state-us-military-plans-to-crush-dissident-political-groups-target-leaders-with-sniper-fire/5398485> which mainstream media will never touch.

That the American people have not risen up and jailed these leaders who have deliberately destroyed the country is a sure testament to their mental incapacitation due to an array of debilitating processes that have not only lowered their IQs but undermined their will to challenge the lies they are constantly told. Even as the government steals everything they have, those who can recognize the scams being played on them are terrified into silence at the prospect of losing the meager possessions they still possess.

Intelligent or not, the average American citizen not only has no input or effect on what the U.S. government does, he or she has absolutely no way to meaningfully communicate with any department of the American government, failing the critical requirement of being able to place at least tens of thousands of dollars into the hands of some elected representative who will at least pretend to plead your case to his peers.

But even worse than that is the realization is that most Americans have no desire to even protest the criminal maneuvers that have eroded and polluted the quality of life they possessed when they were children. This paralysis has been made possible by famous TV talking heads who defend government lies and repeat false assertions concocted by spinmeisters while being paid handsomely to dupe the public and increase the bankers’ ill-gotten gain.

Due to the effects of electronic hypnosis through media, diminished brain function caused by debilitating chemicals in food and in the air, and the inestimable harm caused by a medical profession that values profits over optimal health — all reinforced by public media owned by the same people who are committing these crimes — Americans are no longer capable of distinguishing fact from fiction, or the truth from the lies that are now destroying all life on this planet.

How else can you explain the danger that our elected and appointed officials have put us in? Were those children in Sandy Hook actually killed? Did they ever really exist? Do you think you know the answer?

How else can you explain ISIS, funded by U.S. government money, run by an Israeli posing as a Muslim dissident, then bombed by the U.S. military as it pretends to defend the puppet government it installed in Iraq?

What perverse program enabled many thousands of Central American residents posing as homeless children to cross the U.S. border and be welcomed with open arms by a government that values their welfare far above that of taxpaying Americans who are suffering from the loss of jobs throughout the country? One school in Massachusetts reported that its new students from south of the border appear to be older than some of the teachers!

Tonight as you read this, the U.S. government is preparing to start World War III in the Ukraine over lies they have created that would never be believed by a society functioning at normal mental capacity. Today’s headline in USAToday accused Russia of lying about what it is doing in Ukraine, when the reality of the situation is that the USA started this extermination program, replaced the Ukrainian government with its own Israeli hit men, and now seems eager to start a war that would destroy much of the world, lying every step of the way about what is really happening.

How could normal Americans, if any remain, ever put up with this pathological behavior?

The hazards to your health have never been more serious, and the situations have been deliberately created by the people supposed to protect you.

It’s unsafe to put your children into public schools. If the poisoned medicines they are prescribed don’t ruin their lives, the deliberately misleading information they are taught will.

It’s unsafe to buy your food at the supermarket. Due to corruption at the highest levels of government food inspection and the takeover of virtually all farms by megacorporations who own the government, there is no incentive to provide healthy foods, only to seek healthy profits, and the result is the constant poisoning of the consumer, which benefits the following profession.

It’s unsafe to go to a doctor. The move afoot to ban vitamins and traditional medicines combined with the forced popularity of procedures known to be harmful such as radiation and chemotherapy guarantee that your life will be shortened and your wallet emptied by relying on allopathic medicine to maximize your longevity. Instead of curing diseases, mainstream doctors working for the government are busy inventing and perpetuating them for profit.

It’s unsafe to believe what you read in mainstream media. With all media outlets now owned by only six corporations, which are all owned by the same ethnic group, the chances of getting objective and healthful information from any one of them is absolutely zero.

It’s unsafe to challenge any public official for fear of reprisal, fear of attack by the IRS or private mercenary group. The government has quashed the Freedom of Information Act and conducts most of its business in secret so that members of the government might illegally profit from secret negotiations that are never revealed to the public. The highest art form of this technique occurs when the police are able to steal your property without ever charging you with a crime, which happens frequently in every state.

It’s unsafe to point out crimes by cops and the military. You can expect retaliation, discrimination and perhaps the loss of your life if you attempt such a maneuver.

And most critically, it is supremely unsafe to note the fact that Jews control every aspect of our society — TV, universities, book publishing, you name it — which is why all these other maladies have turned America from an open hearted compassionate society to a self-focused regiment of brain dead zombies ready to sell out their neighbors for a few bucks.

We are bludgeoned into keeping our mouths shut at the constant and increasing crimes by our government by a perverted phalanx of pathetic journalists who are compelled to assist the lies of a government intent on destroying the country.

Who are this nation’s famous journalists? In order to gain fame, they have to keep the secret that has destroyed this country and is destroying the world.

One by one you’ve seen those who try to tell the truth ridiculed and banished from the public eye. Helen Thomas. Rick Sanchez. Joe Sobran. Douglas Reed. Ezra Pound. Each of them ruined for trying to tell the truth. The suppression of the truth that they tried to tell you about has destroyed America, and has enabled the plastic, pre positioned politicians to work their sabotage on the republic.

When politicians say peace, they really mean war. The reporters and editors who repeat their words opposing the facts they know to be true are principally responsible for this confusion that has muddled the minds of Americans, and by their deliberately selfish actions have committed the worst kind of treason to humanity.

The choice of all writers is fame vs. truth. Truth brings poverty and disdain. Fame is bought by the lies writers choose to tell, lies that erode the stability of America.

The disease that ails America and infects the entire world with its ruinous double meanings and insidious corruption is Jewish influence, which has totally ruined the principles of honest dealings with our fellow human beings with this poisonous supremacist claptrap that it’s OK to screw your neighbor, kill your parents and prostitute your children as long as you make a lot of money out of the deal.

Tragically, this is what most people believe and it is why life on this planet is about to come to a sorry finish. The natural forces that have been unleashed by this malevolent bunch of kosher psychopaths to gather the wealth of the world into their own pockets and to hell with everybody else are about to cost every living thing on this planet the one thing they value most, and the one thing that they cannot replace under any circumstances.

Which in case you can’t figure that out would be your life.

For you to remain silent about the Jewish threat that has ruined the functional and rewarding lives that we have lived is akin to committing suicide, and the majority of the brain damaged American citizens appear intent on doing just that.

It would be a simple matter to stop this slide into ruin. Simply recognize what the Jews are doing to every society they can get their hands on, and stop them from doing it in a definitive and permanent way.

Otherwise, compassionate, sensible and thoughtful humans have no future whatsoever, only an endless stretch of the big sleep with their eyes wide open.

ANTHEM FOR DISSENT
By Ann Onimus, John Boncore/Splitting The Sky and Ron Bankley

United in fear we trade freedom, our prize for the Patriot Act as united we securitize
United in power over patriarchy, we misogynize
United in self-righteous arrogance, we imperialise
United in degenerate genital mutilation, we circumcise
United we consume and spend, and, united, we capitalize
United in greed we exploit, as united we multinationalize
United we commit economic suicide as, united, we globalise
United in beligerent violence, we waste trillions as, united, we militarize
United we massacre millions and think we’re so brave, united we fantasize
United we bomb, destroy, maim, mass murder, slaughter and terrorize
United in massive denial we look the other way, as united, we atrocitize
United in ‘might makes right’, we dominate and, united, we hegemonize
United we pillage the third world and then, united, we moralize
United we covet their resources and, united, we monopolize
United in total denial we deny that, united, we brutalize
United we believe without question the star spangled propaganda our leaders so unceasingly televise
United we, so very obediently, swallow the many fabricated red white and blue lies
United we’re so blind, with closed eyes except wide-eyed Ashcroft spies
And in the many resource rich countries that, united, we occupy and we colonize, and united we impoverish and victimize
Yet another corporate billion is pried and yet another heart broken mother cries and yet another star spangled bomb drops
And yet another innocent child heinously dies
Yet another example of united we collateralize
Just U.S. business as usual, as united we privatize
United we stand completely deranged
Global terrorist in our ‘freedom and democracy’ disguise
As united we stand apathetic and complicit in American terrorism
As united we turn on TV to de-sensitise
As united we stand in massive denial
As united we ignore the innocent pleas of the innocent ones we exterminate
As united we stand inanely pledging allegiance to the flag of facist terrorism
As their blood on it dries
As united we stand, surrendering our freedom to the real ‘axis of evil’ Corporation, CIA, and Military guise
As united we stand with our heads in the sand, as the American Fourth Reich is born
And freedom dies
As united we stand so comfortably numb and deniably dumb
That united we don’t have sense to realise
That united we stand on the brink of the New World Order totalitarian police state
United we are so……Blind

THANK YOU CANADA AND NATO: You Murdered My Precious Family

[Editor’s Note: By the time I had put together all the photos, uploaded them and got the text of the article checked over I was pretty well exhausted and overcome emotionally and mentally by a gnawing, nauseating sense of the grossly sordid and evil nature of what Canadian has done to the innocent, gentle people of Libya. I have never felt so ashamed of my country in my entire 65 years of living here. The utter disgust and loathing that I now feel for Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and all those MPs who voted to go along with the criminal, Zionist-controlled North Atlantic Terrorist Organization (NATO) agenda of war and destruction goes beyond any descriptive words that I could possibly dredge up from the darkest, foulest thesaurus in existence.

Harper’s actions, as the so-called “leader” of this once semi-civilized nation, have so degraded the country in the eyes of the non-NATO world that I am literally embarrassed to call Canada my home any longer. Such absolute repugnance for another human being I never thought possible until the reality of what he and his governing party of psychopathic war criminals have done to the once prosperous and peaceful nation of Libya finally sunk in to my heart and mind.

I can only wonder and stand in awe and silence at the horrible intensity of grief that Khaled El Hamedi must feel knowing that his precious, loved, pregnant wife and his sweet, darling babies were all blow to pieces in a split second because of the monstrously evil and deliberately vile terrorist decisions of our elected officials in Ottawa. And I include every single one of those miserable excuses for members of parliament who never spoke out against Harper and his Zionist, boot-licking traitorous sycophants.

Every MP in Ottawa who didn’t have the courage and heart to vote against the decision to join NATO in its wanton killing spree stands accused of complicity in committing war crimes. Each and every one of them ought to be arrested and then given a fair and just trial and hopefully found guilty. And once convicted the whole worthless lot of them should either be strung up from the nearest and tallest tree available on Parliament Hill or else sent to Iraq or Libya  or Afghanistan to spend the remainder of their destitute days doing penance by having to remove, bare handed, all the DU contaminated rubble now littering the landscape of those innocent nations!

This former nation of “peacekeepers” Canada has, thanks to the criminal insanity of the Harper Conservatives and their lackeys, plummeted to the lowest depths of demonic depravity ever and those responsible for this degeneracy deserve to be treated by all peace-loving, decent Canadians as a hostile, renegade, traitorous and alien power.

Never has this country ever had such a sick mind leading it. If Harper were a dog it would be time to put him out of his misery. It’s little wonder that he’s forever suck-holing and groveling at the feet of the leader of that racist, war-mongering shitty little piece of stolen real estate in the middle of Palestine called “Israel”. Between himself and his unctuous, fat-assed side-kick Jason Kenney they’ve both managed to drag the (now) bloodstained country I once proudly called home down to the same gut-wrenching, nauseous level of savagery as the psychopaths from Tel Aviv.

At this point all I can say is WAKE UP CANADA! Wake up before this seditiously sick, Zionist-worshipping excuse for a human being destroys Canada once and for all. And yes, I know my words may appear to some unduly harsh but God knows they are all I have available at this point to voice the intense loathing for what this national disgrace has done to my former democratic, peace-loving nation. We once held in our hands a priceless pearl of beauty and now this traitor in Ottawa has thrown it to the swine of deception, greed, murder and destruction.]

Return to Sorman – Anatomy of a NATO war crime

Franklin Lamb
Sorman, Libya

It was a warm early Monday morning along the Libyan coast on June 20, 2011.

At approximately 0200 GMT the next day in NATO Headquarters in Brussels and 30 minutes later in its media center in Naples, staffers finished tabulating NATO’s 92nd day of aerial attacks on Libya and began to post the data on its website (www.nato.int).

Nato

Twenty four hours earlier an Atlantic Alliance command unit, located approximately 30 miles off the Libyan coast, in a direct line with Malta, and NATO’s targeting unit had signed off on 49 bombing missions for June 20th, the last day of spring and the last day of NATO’s original UN bombing mandate.

Tripoli
NATO carnage in Tripoli

The authority for NATO’s bombing, which far exceeded earlier estimates, killing or wounding of between 90,000-120,000 Libyans and foreigners, and the displacement of more than two million Libyans and foreign workers was claimed from the hastily adopted UN Security Council Resolutions 1970 and UNSCR 1973. UN resolutions 1970 & 1973 gave NATO UN Chapter 7 authority to enforce a no-fly zone over Libyan airspace, initially for 90 days which ironically ended the day before  its bombing at Sorman.

The two UN Security Council Resolutions were insisted upon by their main sponsors, France, the UK, Italy and the US who claimed that ”a limited no-fly zone would protect Libya’s civilian population from the wrath of the government of Libya’s leader, Muammar Gadhafi.” NATO requested and was granted two additional 90 days extensions to continue its Libyan mission which gave its air force until the end of 2011 to continue Operation Unified Protector.

It was early Monday morning, June 20, 2011.

Sorman Libya. A quiet and peaceful Libyan town, Sorman is located 45 miles west of Tripoli, near the Mediterranean coast, in the Zawiya District of the Tripolitania region in northwestern Libya. Many of the town’s children grew up exploring the 3rd Century truly magnificent Roman Ruins at nearby Sabratha.

sabratha

Some archeologists consider Sabratha, located almost in direct line with Rome across the Mediterranean, and built on a high cliff above the sea, as the most complete extant Roman architecture  with only a small part of this large Roman city having been excavated. This observer has visited Sabratha a few times since the mid-1980 and each visit presents more awe. Families from Sorman and nearby villages regularly visit and picnic there.

In the early hours of June 20, 2011 it was dark in Sorman except for some muted half-moon light. A few dim street lights and some partially illumined homes in provided some light as residents began to rise and prepare for the Al Fajr (“Dawn”) prayers.

Khaled el Hamedi
Khaled El Hamedi, President of the International Organization
for Peace, Care and Relief

At the homestead of Khaled K. El Hamedi, the 37 year old President of the International Organization for Peace, Care & Relief (IOPCR), one of Libya’s most active social service organizations everyone was asleep following a rambunctious birthday party for his three year old son. The Hamedi family members included Khaled’s three year and one day old son Khweldi, four and one half year old daughter Khaleda, his beautiful pregnant wife Safa, his aunt Najia, and his six year old niece Salam, among others.

At NATO’s Control and Command Center, the 49 bombing missions planned for early morning of June 20, included a target at Sorman, which would push the number of NATO reconnaissance sorties over Libya to 11,930. This number would become 26,500 by midnight on October 31, when NATO would end its air campaign. The days bombing sorties would also bring the tally of rocket and bombing targets to 4,521. This figure would increase to more than 11,781 by late fall, when NATO was instructed to end OUP (Operation Unified Protector).

NATO’s prepares to bomb Dorman’s “command and control center”

Before the bombs were fired at Khaled K. el-Hamedi compound, NATO staff conducted a six step process the first of which was surveillance using the MQ-9 Reaper UAV, which sometimes is also used to fire missiles. Also above Sorman was the Predator drone with full-motion video. During June 19 and the early hours of June 20, the drones locked on the Hamedi homestead target and relayed updated information to NATO’s command center.

The Hamedi home was not what NATO labels a “time-critical target” so there was plenty of time for its staff to transmit information about the site from unmanned reconnaissance aircraft to intelligence analysts. Almost certainly, according to a source at Jane’s Weekly, NATO UAV’s watched the Hamedi compound over a period of days and presumably observed part of the birthday party being held for three old Huweldi, the day before the order to bomb was  issued.

NATO Rules of Engagement for Operation United Protector, constitute a set of classified documents which present specific and detailed instructions about what is a legitimate target and who can approve the target, whether pre-planned or “on the fly” when a pilot happens upon a target of opportunity.

The Sorman attack on the Hamedi home was planned as part of what NATO calls its “Joint Air Tasking Cycle (JATC). A target development team put the Hamedi home on the June 20th daily list of targets.

The team used a report from NATO intelligence analysts who determined that retired officer Khaled al Hamedi’s father, one of the original members of the Gadhafi led 1969 coup against King Idris in 1969, and a former member of the Al Fatah Revolution’s Revolutionary Command Council was living on the property. His assassination had been ordered by NATO because they hoped to weaken the regime in some way even though the senior Hamedi was retired and had no decision making role in Libya.

On June 19, the day before bombing attack on the Hamedi family at Sorman, NATO was obliged by its own regulations and by the international law of armed conflict to conduct a“potential for collateral damage review” of this mission.

There is no evidence that this was every done.

A requested US Congressional NATO Liaison Office review of the Sorman bombing, initially requested from Libya on August 2, was completed in early September 2011 and found no documentary evidence or other indication that Bouchard or anyone in NATO’s Target Selection Unit, evaluated, discussed, or even considered the subject of potential civilian casualties at the Hamedi home in Sorman.

Following Bouchard’s green light to bomb the Hamedi home, the coordinates were fixed at 32°45′24″N 12°34′18″E . Specific aim points on the Hamedi property were chosen and eight bombs and missiles were readied and attached to the strike aircraft.

At Sorman, NATO used a variety of bombs and missiles including the “bunker busting” BLU-109 (Bomb Live Unit) which is designed to penetrate 18 feet of concrete. NATO also used the American MK series of 500 lb, (MK 81) 1000 lb, (MK-82) and the 2000 lb (MK-84) that Israel  used so widely during its 2006 invasion of Lebanon. The MK series and the BLU-109 are reportedly being stockpiled in Israel is preparation for both countries anticipated next war in this region.

BunkerBuster

Following the infernal at Sorman, NATO denied responsibility but the next day NATO admitted carrying out an air strike somewhere in Sorman but denied that there were civilian deaths even as its drones filmed the scene close up. NATO’s media office in Naples issued a statement claiming “A precision air strike was launched against a high-level command and control node in the Sorman area without collateral damage.” NATO spokespersons also told Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch that “the facility was a legitimate military target and that all necessary precautions were taken before conducting the strike which minimized any potential risk of causing unnecessary casualties”.

The official NATO record of its bombing of Libya for June 20, 2011 reads as follows and remains unchanged:

“Allied Joint Force Command NAPLES, SHAPE, NATO HQ.
Over the past 24 hours, NATO has conducted the following activities associated with Operation UNIFIED PROTECTOR:
Air Operations Sorties conducted 20 JUNE: 149
Strike sorties conducted 20 JUNE: 52

Key Hits

20 JUNE: In the vicinity of Tripoli: 1 Command & Control Node, 8 Surface-To-Air Missile Launchers,
1 Surface-To-Air Missile Transport Vehicle. In the vicinity of Misratah: 3 Truck-Mounted Guns, 2 Self-
Propelled Anti-Aircraft Guns, 1 Tank. In the vicinity of Tarhunah: 1 Military Equipment Storage Facility. In the vicinity of Al-Khums: 1 Military Vehicle Storage Facility. In the vicinity of Zintan: 1 Rocket Launcher.”

Oddly, NATO records for June 20th as well as subsequent reports of bombing attacks listed for June 20th and June 21st in its daily logs have never included the bombing attack on Sorman or the attack on the Al-Hamedi residence which indisputably killed 15 civilians.

Just before the bombs hit, eye witnesses, reported seeing red specks in the sky and then flashes of intense light, immediately followed by thunderous ear splitting blasts as eight American bombs and rockets pulverized their neighbors homestead.

In an instant Khaled El Hamedi’s family was dead. The children were crushed, blown apart or shredded into pieces, along with friends and extended family members who had slept overnight.

The attack resulted in killing a total of 13 people and injuring 6 people with severe injuries:

Killed:
1 – Eng./ Safa Ahmed Mahmoud, wife of Eng. Khaled El Hamedi
2 – Child / Khaleda Khaled El Khweldi El Hamedi (4 and half years). (Daughter)
3 – Child / El Khweldi Khaled El Khweldi El Hamedi (3 years and one day ). ( Son)
4 – Child / Salam Mohamed Nouri El Hamedi (6 years). the niece of Eng. Khaled ElHamedi
5 – Njie Belkacem El Hamedi, the aunt of Eng. Khaled El Hamedi
6 – Child / Amnha Issam Jomaa (8 years). The daughter of the neighbor
7 – Child / Amira Issam Jomaa (8 months). The daughter of the neighbor
8 – Mohammed M’hamed El Hamedi . The cousin of Eng. Khaled El Hamedi
9 – Imad Abu Aoueigila Trabelsi. The house guard
10 – Abdullah Al Nabi. The house guard
11 – Bashir Isaac Ali (Sudan). Working cook at the house
12 – Aisha Al Cleih (Morocco). Housekeeper
13 – Bushra Yali (Morocco). Housekeeper
Injured:
1- Mr. Khweldi El Hamedi badly injured in his leg (Father )
2- Mrs. Khweldi El Hamedi badly injured in her arms and joints (Mother )
3- Msra Khweldi El Hamedi, student at Medical College, badly injured and had a
complicated surgery in her mouth (Sister)
4- Ayaa Mahmoud ( Cousin )
5- Fathiya , badly injured and lost her leg ( Babysitter from Morocco)
6- Moftah Elgmatti , several injuries in his legs and had a number of operations (driver)

Khaled was working late, attending meetings with displaced Libyans driven from their homes and urgently in need of IOPCR help. As he returned home, Khaled saw from his car window the sky light up and heard exploding bombs. He was frozen in horror as he entered his property and observed rescue workers frantically digging and futilely trying to move the thick concrete slabs of his home hoping against hope that they would miraculously find survivors.

Funeral

HamediHouseDestr

KhalidMourning

Libyan government spokesman Mousa Ibrahim announced the death of 13 people, including six children,  who were killed at Sorman. He slammed the NATO bombing as a “cowardly terrorist act which cannot be justified.” Investigators, who visited Sibratha hospital 10 kilometers from Sorman, saw nine bodies, including three young children. They also saw body parts including a child’s head.

For those who visited the El Hamidi family compound back in June following the NATO bombings, as this observer did less than a week after the crime as part of an international delegation, the scene was one of total devastation.

Collapsed and blown apart concrete and tiled homes, small body parts, and bits of family belongings and memorabilia, trees, some blown over, others bending and nearly denuded of their foliage, dead, terrified and dying petting zoo animals, including exotic birds, Ostrich, Deer, small animals and large moose killed or left near death and most in a blind stupor staring blankly from what remained of their shelters while dying of wounds and from trauma.

HamediBombedHome

Outside one of the bombed houses I noticed crushed cartons of spaghetti pasta and cans of tomato sauce, stockpiled for distribution to the needy as part of the work of IOPCR during the summer and in preparation for the coming Holy month of Ramadan observances which includes doing performing charitable works and individual humanitarian acts.

Under growing pressure from the international community including NATO member states, NATO HQ claimed equipment malfunction, missed target, poor intelligence and pilot errors. Finally US Defense secretaries Gates and his replacement, Leon Panetta admitted that NATO lacked effective intelligence on the ground to identify military targets with certainty. Former Defense Secretary Gates, in criticizing NATO’s operation in Libya implied that NATO used a ‘bomb first ask questions later’ paradigm in Libya. And this appears to have been the case.

These excuses in no way absolve NATO and its 28 NATO member states of responsibility.

Canadian Lieutenant General Charles Bouchard insists to this day that only Libya’s military was targeted: “This important strike will greatly degrade Gadhafi regime forces’ ability to carry on their barbaric assault against the Libyan people,” he told the media from his office in Brussels. The civilian deaths at Sorman came just hours after NATO acknowledged that one of its missiles had gone astray early on Sunday, hitting a residential neighborhood of Tripoli.

At the request of Khaled El Hamedi, himself being sought by Libya’s new government, and aware that I was going to return to Sorman, I felt honored as I made my way to his loved ones’ grave sites on the family homestead where he and I first met, in order to deliver a message from him to his loved ones.

Picking my way through debris in the dark, under the cold and suspicious eyes of a couple of local militiamen, I stood at the same spot, where on June 27th his family’s freshly dug graves bore witness to what Khaled was describing to our shocked delegation concerning the details of the horror and hellfire that NATO unleashed upon his family.

Back in June I had moved to the rear of our group as Khaled spoke to us about the loss of his babies, his beauties and his precious pregnant wife. I was embarrassed because for some reason, uncontrollable tears would not stop streaming down my face and, despite averting my eyes, I saw that Khaled noticed. I was touched when this young man, to whom I was a total stranger, came to me and put his arm around my shoulder in comfort. Clearly he understood that each of us can feel the pain of others, even of strangers, as well as connect them with our own losses of loved ones in life.

Later, as I learned more about Khaled’s family and saw their most expressive and revealing photos, I came to believe that with respect to the wanton criminal aggression that caused thousands of needless deaths of innocents over the period of nearly nine months against this simple, gentle society, that Najia, Safa, Salam, Khaleda, and Khweldi, and the others slaughtered at Sorman, are forever iconic representatives of all the innocent civilians who were slaughtered in Libya since March 2011.

During my recent visit to Sorman, I stood at the same location as last June. I surveyed the area and then approached the graves of Najia, Safa, Salam, Khaleda, and Khweldi. In the cold darkness it was and the piles of rubble still in place it was eerie.

I knelt close, felt a strange source of warmth and looked over my shoulder.

I whispered in the silent night that I had a message from your loving Husband, Father, Uncle and Nephew that he asked me to deliver to you.

I read to them the message entrusted to me. And I left a copy in Arabic, pinned to a bouquet of flowers:

The message read:

“Please say a very big hello to them and tell them I am coming.
Please tell them “I won’t leave you alone
And I miss each of you so very much.”
And please write them each a note.
Najia, Safa, Salam, Khaleda, and Khweldi.
Franklin, Tell them, “You are my life.
You are my love.
I miss you very, very much.
Life without you is so painful, so hard and completely empty.
I won’t stay and live away from you. I promise.
I’ll return and be close to you. Baba will be back.
I love you.

As I made my way back to the main road in search of a taxi, a militiaman stopped me and interrogated me about why I was there, confiscated my camera and ordered me to leave the area at once.

I paused for a moment and looked back toward what had been a loving family home, a petting zoo and bird sanctuary that had delighted the children in this neighborhood.

A little boy and girl, perhaps siblings, maybe six or seven years old, approached me with their Ethiopian nanny and asked: “Wien, (where is) Khaleda? Wien Khweldi? metta yargeoun ila Al Bayt (when will they come home?)
“When will they come home?”

Unable to speak, I kissed and patted their sweet heads and continued on my way.

——

Nato's child victims

Khaled K. Al-Hamedi is strong, deeply religious, and fatalistic. He has pledged to family and friends around the world that he will continue his work with the International Organization for Peace, Care & Relief in spite of the life shattering loss of his loved ones.

An honorable family, a peaceful and welcoming town, a devastated country, and a shocked and angry international community demand justice from those who sent ‘Unified Protector’ and NATO’s no-fly zone to destroy Libya in order to “protect the civilian population.”

JB Campbell: Anti-American

USflag

The leakers are being called “anti-American.”

What decent person, anywhere in the world today, is not anti-American? Is there anyone more dangerous than our typical ignorant, arrogant American “citizen,” who very likely couldn’t find America on a marked map of the world? Well, yes: the American military man, who is the most dangerous son of a bitch on the planet. And I don’t mean that in a good way.

I’m anti-American. I really wasn’t until I returned to Rhodesia in January, ’73 to join up and help in their struggle against Communist terrorists. I’d been down there in ’71 for discussions with the government on bringing Americans and others wanting to be part of a new country project based on a book by my boss, Michael Oliver, called A New Constitution for a New Country. The plan was to have a minimum of a hundred square miles with no taxes and no draft, replacing the former tax-haven in Freeport, Bahamas. Thousands of productive Americans and others were ready to relocate.

Mike’s real name was Olitsky and he was a Lithuanian Jew who’d fled into Germany to escape Stalin’s Red Army. He wound up in Dachau for four years. He introduced me to Holocaust Revisionism when I ventured to ask him about his experience. He shrugged and said, “It was a factory. We worked during the day and stayed in a dormitory at night.”

“But what about the, uh, the—”

“The what?”

“You know, the killings.”

“I never saw any of that.”

Four years in Dachau, never saw any of that. Okay. He did see the US Army “liberate” the camp in April, ’45. The SS and Alpine troops recuperating there had negotiated a surrender to the Americans, who entered the camp and started shooting the guys who thought they were surrendering. Then the Americans marched the surviving soldiers (all the prison guards had fled days earlier) up to a wall near the hospital and set up a machine gun. Three hundred forty-six German soldiers on R&R were slaughtered in a few minutes, five hundred twenty in all that morning. George Patton handled the cover-up and protected the war criminals. The army doctor on the scene, Col. Howard Buechner, described it in his book, Dachau: Hour of the Avenger. Of the 32,000 inmates freed, about 1,200 were Jews, including Mike.

The Military Solution

Photobucket

By J. Bruce Campbell

Friday, July 29th, 2011

As a Rhodesian anti-terrorist in the early ‘70s, I figured that the combination of normal African cruelty with Jewish Communism was the ultimate in political sadism. The atrocities I witnessed were shocking and revolting.

It turned out that my education was incomplete. I was not fully aware of what America had done or would do in the decades to come. It took a few years after returning home to see what the future held for us Americans.

The American military has up to the present date not covered itself in glory. Military glory can only be obtained in the defense of the nation from unprovoked military attack by another country. Let’s disabuse ourselves of smug ideas that Ft. Sumter and Pearl Harbor were unprovoked attacks.

There have been no unprovoked attacks since the War for Independence from England. Starting in 1861 and ever since, the American military has been the aggressor, controlled and exploited by American politicians on behalf of private bankers.

We Americans were born in a country founded on a violent and treacherous land grab from the original inhabitants, who themselves did not deal in real estate sales or mortgage fraud. Virtually every treaty made by the US government was broken by the US Army, which conducted the first modern extermination program, today known as “ethnic cleansing.”

The legal system of a country based on African slavery and extermination of its natives can only be an exercise in fraud and hypocrisy.

The behavior of the American military in the 20th Century and now in the 21st has been shockingly savage and sadistic, with scores of millions of dead foreigners who threatened us not in the least. The suffering of the survivors cannot be calculated.

The American wars of the 20th and 21st Centuries were fought and are being fought for Jewish profit and for the artificial Jewish enclave known as Israel. This Jewish enclave appears to exert total power over the American military.

Back in 1979 I spoke with the former Wall Street banker and congressional investigator for the Reece Committee, Norman Dodd. In 1953 Mr. Dodd elicited the statement from Rowan Gaither, then president of the Ford Foundation, that his and the other tax-exempt foundations were committing their subversion to alter life in the US so that this country could be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.

Mr. Dodd’s impatient first words in 1979 were, “We have over-diagnosed the problem.” These soon became this writer’s sentiments, which led to an attempt to form the basic resistance movement ten years later which I for political purposes called “the militia.” All of my contributions to VT have offered solutions rather than mere analysis, thanks to Norman Dodd’s advice.

The militia was a movement with a narrow window of opportunity to attack the Council on Foreign Relations and other Jewish agencies before the movement was infiltrated by FBI, military and police agents who would ultimately slaughter scores of federal employees and their children to stop this armed and potentially powerful phenomenon.

The merger contemplated by the Ford Foundation is obsolete in the literal sense. But the fact is that America has become the Soviet Union, so that an official merger became unnecessary.

The US Army is now the Red Army. The US Army and the Red Army were military partners from 1941 to 1945 and worked closely for another three years to slaughter millions of helpless Germans and Jew-wise Europeans until the lucrative Cold War was started. Suddenly, the partners became “enemies.” In a few decades, the Soviet Union had served its purpose and was dissolved. America then became the Communist monster with no counter-balance.

1948 was also the year that Palestine’s name was changed and that sad country became the poisonous Jewish headquarters for war, treachery, repression and chaos.

Obviously, this writer is anti-military. Anyone who would start a civilian resistance movement is anti-military. But there is only one organization that can remove Israel as the number one threat to life on this planet. That organization is the US military.

Now, Israel has not slaughtered millions of Iraqis or untold numbers of Afghans, Pakistanis and Libyans. Israel did not slaughter millions of Germans after World War II. The American military has done that, due to some mysterious control of it by American and Israeli Jews.

Again, the US military has not covered itself in glory. It is covered by Jewish slime. The US military is a disgrace and has always been a disgrace. It must be purged of its subversive agents of Judaism.

American and Israeli Jews exercise control of the US military via Freemasonry and homosexuality, both of which are rampant in the senior officer class of the Army, Marine Corps, Air Force and Navy, according to the courageous revelations of Kay Griggs, the former wife of Marine Colonel George Griggs. The colonel revealed to his wife that the senior officer class participates in the vilest forms of “male bonding,” done for the purposes of mind control and obedience to illegal orders, which include assassination.

Israel, with American Jewish permission, has threatened to unleash its weapons of mass destruction on the capitals of Europe. Reports persist here that Israel has planted nuclear weapons in American cities that will be detonated if Israel is not obeyed.

Other credible reports indicate that Israel was responsible for the Japanese nuclear disaster in retaliation for Japan’s support of the Palestinians in the UN. Also that Israel attempted to kill Germany’s president for the same reason (sabotaged helicopter) and that the Norwegian slaughter of children was for that country’s pro-Palestinian position.

This level of threatened and actual mass murder can only be thwarted by the masters of mass murder, the US military, which has been under the Jewish spell since at least 1861. There is only one way that the US military can redeem itself and rescue the world from the fruit of its sadistic behavior on behalf of Judaism. Judaism must be removed as a threat to life on this planet and prevented from ever rising again.

It is time that the US military cleanse itself of Jewish agents, Freemasons and homosexuals, all of whom serve Jewish finance capitalism and the state of Israel. The US military’s routine slaughtering of foreigners who are in the way of Jewish plundering must stop.

The US military must remove all weapons of mass destruction possessed by Israel, as demanded by John F. Kennedy in the months leading up to his assassination.

Humanity will never be safe until artificial Jewish domination is ended.

America must inevitably experience a military coup to rescue itself from Jewish Rule, which has saturated our political, social and legal systems. Jewish Rule is why America is so sick and degenerate and overrun by aliens.

This is not far-fetched, as we can plainly see with the sudden and unexpected fall of the House of Murdoch. This Jewish propaganda machine is self-destructing. The rest of the Hollywood /New York axis must also be dismantled. Jews must not be allowed in any positions of power or influence, ever again.

We can see what has happened in the past once this effort is begun. Jewish retribution comes in the form of mass annihilation. In those days, the true nature of Judaism was not understood. The “newspaper of record,” the New York Times, deliberately concealed from its readers the truth of what a bunch of New York Jews did to the Russian, Ukrainian and other peoples, with American help, starting in 1917.

Most Americans did not understand the Jewish declaration of war against Germany in 1933, or what it would lead to. Some did, the members of the America First Committee, but they were silenced by the FDR-contrived attack on Pearl Harbor.

The American military is the key to survival, just as it has been the key to Jewish Rule. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and an even more dangerous master. And, as with everything else in life, it depends on good men in charge – always a problem.

There just might be enough good men in the American military who have the guts and the brains to seize control of the murder machine and arrest the traitors who have been propelled to the top by bootlicking, degeneracy and moral cowardice.

You lieutenants and captains and majors who aren’t on the make can seize control and end the slaughter and torture of innocents. You know damn well that no one in Guantanamo is guilty of anything other than resisting American barbarism. And that’s if he’s not just some cab driver you stupidly bought for three grand.

Think back on the disgrace of Abu Ghraib and reflect on how such a thing could happen. Abu Ghraib, Bagram, Guantanamo, prison ships, renditions, torture, mass murder, depleted uranium munitions that have produced deformed babies of your own, not to mention the horrors in Iraq. You are in total disgrace for your participation in crimes against humanity.

Of course, you were just following orders given by draft-dodging pukes in DC. You still are. Honestly, how could you take orders from a soft piece of chicken-shit such as Dick Cheney? Or an obvious lying spook such as Barack Obama? Are you that delusional? That impotent? Maybe not.

America is dead, and much of the blame comes from the crimes of the US military in the 19th, 20th and 21st Centuries. We can bring it back to life, which will take a while, but it can’t be done without the revolt of the US military and the overthrow of the war lords, the finance lords and the propaganda lords headquartered in Washington DC, New York and Tel Aviv.

The J-factor

By J  Bruce Campbell STAFF WRITER

Veteran’s Today Network

January 31, 2011

The uprisings in Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen are the inevitable results of the J-factor, which destroys everything. As I was told by a Saudi army general many years ago, all Arab countries are secretly controlled by Israel, including his own. (I hadn’t known back then that the Saudi “royal family” are themselves descendants of converts to Islam from Judaism and my partner didn’t tell me.) It is Jewish control of Arab countries that was the exact reason the Russian Jews were forced into the region following WWI: to destabilize Arabs and eventually control their huge oil resources.

Anwar Sadat was assassinated in 1981 by the Muslim extremists Tanzim al-Jihad for making a treaty with the most infamous Jewish terrorist, Menachem Begin, a couple of years earlier. His tyrannical successor, Mubarak, has made himself very useful to Israel and the CIA ever since, which is the reason the Egyptians hate him so and why Leslie Gelb, president emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations, just said that Mubarak should stay in power. Gelb says Mubarak must be supported to prevent the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) from coming to power. Netanyahu is also afraid that the MB may take over the Egyptian government, so they are reportedly planning to invade and seize the huge Sinai Peninsula again while the Egyptian army is distracted. Gelb is Jewish and Netanyahu is Jewish. Does it matter to us which one says the same thing? Yes. What matters is who controls the money, and that is Gelb’s gang. Netanyahu’s gang gets our money as a result of US policy made by Gelb’s gang.

For some crazy reason, Ron Paul’s fortunate son has just pulled a Kennedy-style double cross and called for ending foreign aid to Israel, after running on a support-Israel position! The Kennedys did that to their Mafia supporters, too. But the point is, foreign aid CAN be cut off, especially in our ludicrous debt position. It will be decided by Gelb’s gang. Israel has always performed a very important job for the oil bankers and has been given the widest possible latitude to perform that job. They have been given that latitude by the mysterious super-Jews who control our money system, so it has seemed that America is actually controlled by Israel. This is just a part of the ongoing deception and disinformation program of the masters of deceit.

Up until 2006, Jewish thought-control of Internet content was still quite strong – strong enough to induce self-censorship by the various bloggers and webmasters. The word “Jew” pretty much had to be replaced with some euphemism, usually “Zionist.” I was writing for Rense.com and produced something I called “Jewish Rule.” Jeff Rense initially rejected the piece, saying he couldn’t run it unless I softened it with other words for “Jew.” So I added some reasons why Jews should be called Jews. Jeff ran it without changes. Judicial-inc added pictures and that website has since been attacked and taken down. It’s available on Gnostic Liberation Front.

This piece broke the dam and led to what has become a flood of anti-Jewish material on the Internet. “Zionist” and “Zionism” are very good and legitimate words and should be used to describe the practice of Russian Jews, descendants of converts to Judaism, emigrating from Russia to Palestine and sadistically occupying that ancient country and re-naming it “Israel,” whence they would run the World Jewish Revolution. Some of my friends don’t like to use the word “Zionist” for any reason, but I disagree. It should be used in the strict meaning of the word.

One of the most deceptive phrases the Jews have is “anti-Semitism.” But it’s very easily sidestepped. On a special radio show in LA hosted by Susan Estrich she entitled “Anti-Semitism,” I called in and confronted her and her guest, Alan Dershowitz, the Harvard law professor and expert on “anti-Semitism.”


“Does either of you have one drop of Semitic blood in your body?”

Dershowitz quickly answered, “I must admit, I’m uncomfortable with the term…”

“Then why do you use it?”

“I just think there should be a better word.”

“But you didn’t say that on this show called ‘Anti-Semitism’ until I asked you that.”

Susan Estrich to the rescue: “So you don’t want to be called an ‘anti-Semite…” You just hate Jews.”

“I do think we need to be Jew-wise.”

“’Jew-wise?’ Well, I’m ending this call right now!”

But that’s how to deal with someone calling you an “anti-Semite.” If I can make Alan Dershowitz shut up with one little question, you can see how powerful it is. The accusation of “anti-Semitism” has a dual-use. The first is to suggest very subtly that Russian Jews have some blood right to invade and occupy Semite-land. No Ashkenazi Jew will ever say that he is a Semite, if you ask him or her. That would be a very offensive idea. But you’re an “anti-Semite” if you criticize Jews. So the second use is to make you shut up. A total deception.

Anyway, the real Semites are revolting, all over Semite-land. The anti-Semites in Tel Aviv are getting ready to reap what they have sown since 1948. The Semites have nothing left to lose, which means they’re free. They’re free to rise up and kill the tyrants installed by Jews in the United States. Soon they will be free to remove the Zionist cancer from the page of history. Will the Israeli Jews nuke them to save themselves? Maybe not. I suspect that they will prefer to live out their days in Hollywood, Phoenix and Miami rather than go Samson Option. The Jewish Problem will continue for us, even if the Forever Persecuted Ones have to decamp once more for friendlier lands, meaning here.

Radicals for Peace By William T. Hathaway

WarIsOver
                   Radicals for Peace

WilliamHathaway
               By William T. Hathaway

It costs 50 million dollars to kill each Taliban, but when dead he becomes a martyred hero to recruit new replacements, so the numbers of Taliban are increasing. In Iraq the terror our invasion unleashed still rages unabated, with hired mercenaries and local soldiers unable to stop it, as our troops before them were unable to. Yet  we continue the fighting, and Obama the peace candidate has morphed into a war president. We are trapped in endless war.

To break out of this death trap, peace activists have turned to radical tactics. They’ve moved beyond demonstrations and petitions into direct action, defying the government’s laws and impeding its capacity for mass murder. Some of them have become domestic insurgents, helping soldiers to desert, destroying computer systems, trashing recruiting offices, burning military equipment, and sabotaging defense contractors. As criminals for peace, they are defying the Patriot Act and working underground in secret cells to undermine the US military empire. They are convinced the only way to bring peace now is to bring the system down.

They tell their first-person experiences in a new book, RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War, just published by Trine Day. Noam Chomsky called it, “A book that captures such complexities and depths of human existence, even apart from the immediate message.”

The book profiles several saboteurs. Trucker is the code name of a man who burns military vehicles. He sees his sabotage as nonviolent because it doesn’t harm human beings, only things. He states, “It’s only because our culture worships property that we see destroying war machines as violence. What I’m doing is depriving the military of their tools of violence. I’m decreasing their ability to harm people. Since they refuse to disarm, I’m doing it for them. I’d never set fire to a building because someone might be inside. I even look inside the trucks to make sure no one is sleeping there.”

RADICAL PEACE also profiles a janitor who has destroyed computers at a defense contractor with electrical surges. “I’m sure the lost work and equipment has set back the war effort,” he states, “and I’m looking forward to my next surge for peace.”

A college student relates how she threw a rock through the window of an army recruiter after her friend returned from Iraq crippled. She plans to do it again but says, “I wouldn’t throw a rock at the recruiter. I don’t have anything against him as a person.”

Other domestic insurgents are cutting phone and electricity wires into recruiting offices, slashing their tires, painting over their billboards. At universities they are attacking military research projects and ROTC offices: stealing their mail, squirting glue into their door locks, hacking into their computers. An autonome tossed a log under the wheels of an arms train and derailed it, but he was careful to do it in the middle of the train so no one would be injured.

The saboteurs in the book agree that such resistance must be nonviolent, that it not injure living creatures. Setting bombs and burning buildings where people could be inside can’t achieve anything worthwhile. It just reproduces the same mentality that we’re trying to change.

Rather than randomly smashing windows and torching autos, they restrict their activities to institutions that support or profit from the war. Their goal is to make the war too expensive to continue. A few acts of sabotage won’t do that, but thousands can. Government and corporate resources are limited. Taxes and the deficit are already so high that they’re crippling the economy. Every dollar the government has to spend keeping things running here is one they can’t spend killing people overseas.

The militants believe that direct actions like these aren’t a substitute for traditional organizing, but in critical situations like the present they can supplement it. Sabotage won’t build a new society, but it can help weaken the old one so the new one can be built.

Chapters of RADICAL PEACE are posted on the publisher’s website at http://media.trineday.com/radicalpeace.

The State and Local Bases of Zionist Power in America/James Petras

NewRadLogo3

[Editor’s Note: I received an email from Splitting the Sky aka John Boncore, inquiring as to the overall intent and purpose of James Petras’s September 1, 2010 article posted below. 

In response to this query from STS I wrote to him the following letter which I feel puts Petras’s article into a Canadian perspective]:

Dear Splitting the Sky,

I finally found the time to take a serious look at Petras’s article. I found it to be exceedingly brilliant and interesting as well as invaluable in terms of identifying the scope and magnitude of Zionist influence in the USA.

I’ve highlighted (for you) in red/bold some of the more poignant comments that Petras makes with respect to their unwarranted power and influence and the mechanisms which they use to destroy any and all dissidents who oppose them.

My sense though is that Petras isn’t bypassing the type of struggles that I and others here in Canada are facing. His main focus is the USA but for me at least I find that it’s very easy to extrapolate from the US situation to that of Canada. Here of course we don’t appear to have people who’ve thus far been able to research and dissect the Canadian body politic in order to show and explain to fellow Canucks how this very same subterfuge and seditious activity is taking place within our own government, judiciary and society.

I, in my limited capacity and time, have been trying to alert fellow Canadians to the problem but my resources are (as you well know) extremely limited and prohibitive when it comes to taking the time to do the indepth research required to identify the culprits and show how they’re all linked together to the very same agenda that the US is in terms of Israeli influence.

Obviously Harper and Jason Kenney are the most blatant examples of this underlying process of infiltration and power politics by Tel Aviv and its minions of sayanim here in Canada but I’m convinced that they are only the tip of the iceberg and that the network is much more complex.

In terms of my battles with B’nai Brith Canada and the Canadian Human Rights Commission and Tribunal that scenario is one which does highlight to a limited degree the basic problem but it’s one that still requires much more fleshing out in order to expose the matrix of madness and subterfuge that exists on all levels throughout Canada.

The recent conference in Ottawa on “anti-Semitism” instigated by Irwin Cotler and his Zionist sycophants is the most recent example of this egregious behaviour on the part of the Zionist traitors to Canada and it exemplifies their obvious intentions which is good as it also exposes their agenda (as limited as this might be) and allows Canadians to see and contemplate their objectives in light of the growing awareness globally of the vile and racist actions of the Zionist state of Israel.

Had I the resources to investigate this network of nincompoops further I’m sure I could prove and provide similar background information on the Zionists who are daily doing the identical bidding of the Israeli state here in our own country. Identifying the enemy John is crucial to disabling their lines of defense and diffusing their hidden agenda.

Hope this helps to explain my thoughts on Petras’ article.

Peace bro,

The State and Local Bases of Zionist Power in America

by James Petras / September 1st, 2010

Any serious effort to understand the extraordinary influence of the Zionist power configuration over US foreign policy must examine the presence of key operatives in strategic positions in the government and the activities of local Zionist organizations affiliated with mainstream Jewish organizations and religious orders.

There are at least 52 major American Jewish organizations actively engaged in promoting Israel’s foreign policy, economic and technological agenda in the US (see the appendix). The grassroots membership ranges from several hundred thousand militants in the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) to one hundred thousand wealthy contributors, activists and power brokers in the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). In addition scores of propaganda mills, dubbed think tanks, have been established by million dollar grants from billionaire Zionists including the Brookings Institute (Haim Saban) and the Hudson Institute among others. Scores of Zionist funded political action committees (PAC) have intervened in all national and regional elections, controlling nominations and influencing election outcomes. Publishing houses, including university presses have been literally taken over by Zionist zealots, the most egregious example being Yale University, which publishes the most unbalanced tracts parroting Zionist parodies of Jewish history.1 New heavily funded Zionist projects designed to capture young Jews and turn them into instruments of Israeli foreign policy includes “Taglit-Birthright” which has spent over $250 million dollars over the past decade sending over a quarter-million Jews (between 18-26) to Israel for 10 days of intense brainwashing.2 Jewish billionaires and the Israeli state foot the bill. The students are subject to a heavy dose of Israeli style militarism as they are accompanied by Israeli soldiers as part of their indoctrination; at no point do they visit the West Bank, Gaza or East Jerusalem.2 They are urged to become dual citizens and even encouraged to serve in the Israeli armed forces. In summary, the 52 member organizations of the Presidents of the Major American Jewish Organizations which we discuss are only the tip of the iceberg of the Zionist Power Configuration: taken together with the PACs, the propaganda mills, the commercial and University presses and mass media we have a matrix of power for understanding the tremendous influence they have on US foreign and domestic policy as it affects Israel and US Zionism.

While all their activity is dedicated first and foremost in ensuring that US Middle East policy serves Israel’s colonial expansion in Palestine and war aims in the Middle East, what B’nai B’rth euphemistically calls a “focus on Israel and its place in the world”, many groups ‘specialize’ in different spheres of activity. For example, the “Friends of the Israel Defense Force” is primarily concerned in their own words “to look after the IDF”, in other words provide financial resources and promote US volunteers for a foreign army (an illegal activity except when it involves Israel). Hillel is the student arm of the Zionist power configuration claiming a presence in 500 colleges and universities, all affiliates defending each and every human rights abuse of the Israeli state and organizing all expenses paid junkets for Jewish student recruits to travel to Israel where they are heavily propagandized and encouraged to ‘migrate’ or become ‘dual citizens’.

Response to Prime Minister Harper’s demand to NDP Libby Davies to resign by Arthur Topham

RadLogo&Pic

Webmaster Michael Rivero of WhatReallyHappened.com has the following commentary to make:

“The US is not the only nation whose government has been subverted by Israel, and here is a warning to Canadians. When parasites kill their hosts they simply jump to a new host, and as the United States edges closer to collapse, Israel will simply hop across the border and make Canadians their new cash cow. Obviously the groundwork has already been laid by Israel’s subversives.

Note that Libby Davies stated a factual truth; that Israel has been occupying other peoples’ lands all along, and the maps prove it! But Israel has hit the panic button and have launched a program to “cleanse” all media and government of anyone who would dare speak the truth to their power!”

Dear Radical Reader,

Here, in this audacious demand by Canada’s PM Harper, we see the full, hideous face of the farce known as Canada’s federal government. For all intents of purpose Harper might as well be an Israeli Jew. He behaves like one as does Liberal foreign affairs critic Bob Rae who is, in fact, a crypto Jew. They, along with any other Canadian politician who pig-headedly and unquestioningly defends the indefensible when it comes to the racist, supremacist, apartheid state of Israel, is a traitor to Canada and should be removed from any position of power they might currently hold.

These complicit, submissive, sickening Zionist lackeys of Israel are a massive disgrace and an inherent danger to this country and symbolize the degree to which Canada has been infiltrated by the Zionist Jews over the last century. Due of course, also, to the blatant fact that the Jewish International Media Monopoly (JIMM) controls all of our information, the general population of this country lives in abject ignorance of what is truly going on behind the scenes both internationally and domestically.

Bob Rae is a treasonous hypocrite just like Stephen Harper and anyone else who willfully attempts to justify the supreme chauvinistic and brutal sadism that represents the modus operandi of the Jews-only state of Israel. They must be challenged from every quarter on their duplicity and continuing complicity in furthering the lies and the slaughter of innocents by this rogue, illegitimate state.

I, for one, can unconditionally state with a clear conscience and with sufficiently good reasons, that the so-called state of Israel was conceived in subterfuge and deceit and deception from day one by the Rothschild banking consortium decades prior to its illegal inception and that it has no moral or legal right to exist. Two major world wars were instigated by the Rothschild syndicate in order to justify its creation and it’s actions over the past 62 years clearly illustrate the fact that it was brought into existence in order to foment war, death and chaos within the Arab world and also to provide a beachhead (they called it, in typical Zionese deceptive language a “spiritual homeland”) wherein all the most unsavory and bigoted scoundrels in the world could find refuge, set up their citadel of Evil and man their ramparts of repression with three hundred nuclear weapons for immediate use if threatened by the truth.

The state of Israel is the ultimate manifestation in reality of what the terms Big Brother and Terrorism imply and it must be dismantled and removed from the Middle East for good if the world is ever to achieve any semblance of global peace, security and environmental harmony. Any unbiased study of the actions of this so-called “democratic” state will fully expose the fact that death and destruction and environmental degradation have followed in the wake of its creation and will continue to do so until it is dissolved.

The ongoing use of Zionist-Jew created falsehoods such as “anti-Semite” (a contraction in terms in itself) in order to silence anyone who is cognizant of this glaring hoax parading itself around the world as a democracy has got to stop. For years now I’ve been personally battling these very viperous forces here in Canada doing my damnedest to outline and show Canadians the extent to which these serpentine sleuths have permeated our very essence in terms of infrastructure, our judiciary, our supposed “free” press, our publishing companies, academia, churches and most importantly and essentially, our political parties.

JIMM, the global Jew media, coupled with their malicious and overwhelming influence and ability to instill fear in people by accusations of anti-Semitism against any person who voices displeasure with their heinous actions and lies both in Palestine and throughout the world, is the #1 enemy of true freedom and democracy and peace everywhere.

All that NDP Libby Davies stated is true beyond question for anyone who has actually removed the blinkers from their eyes and awakened to the fact that the world has been mesmerized by JIMM into believing that somehow Israel is a legitimate nation and one that is fully deserving of unqualified support regardless of its litany of war crimes and slaughter over the past six decades and more.

Only a population of mind-controlled morons could possibly view the situation and not figure out what the hell’s been going on and that, not surprisingly, is the primary purpose of JIMM – to keep the illusion alive until the day comes when they’ve gained control over all the nation states of the world and introduced legislation under the guise of “hatred toward Jews” so they can then hunt down and incarcerate and imprison anyone who has the audacity to speak the truth about this hideous Beast that calls itself a democracy yet stalks the planet like some blood-soaked Godzilla wreaking death and destruction in its wake..

The gloves have got to come off and people have got to begin speaking the truth about JIMM and the negative effect that it is having upon the freedom of people everywhere to speak their minds and think their own thoughts and express their opinions without fear of being attacked by whatever Jewish lobby group happens to pick up on their words. B’nai Brith Canada and the Canadian Jewish Congress are the two worst examples now existing here in Canada of this clandestine, seditious phenomenon; their efforts over decades having centered on creating the illusion and the lie that somehow Israel is God’s chosen nation and whatever it does to its Arab citizens and its neighbouring nations must be legitimate and justified and unquestioned.

I’ve stated this numerous times in articles that these two Rothschild creatures of cunning and deceit are anathema to a well functioning Canadian government (or any government for that matter) and to the existence of an open and informed electorate. Time and continuing examples of Israel’s evil (yes, evil) ways only further exacerbates the situation for the defenseless and persecuted who are victim’s of this global megalomania; a sickness of the mind and soul symbolizing a psychotic state being perpetually presented to the world as somehow legitimate, honorable and an ideal to be lauded and strived for.

It’s for reasons such as these that “lobby groups” like B’nai Brith and the Canadian Jewish Congress here in Canada and in the USA the ADL (Anti Defamation League) ought to be outlawed and anyone who stridently objects to their dismantling should be sent to Gaza or the West Bank or Iraq or Afghanistan (preferably in areas saturated with depleted uranium) to do community service for the victims of Zionist aggression.

Federal NDP Leader Jack Layton, in making his monumentally ignorant comments about how the NDP would never “ever deny that Israel not only has a right to exist but a right to exist in secure borders in a safe context,” has exhibited his own vastly uniformed knowledge of how Israel actually is constituted and operates. He speaks about “secure borders” in total ignorance of the fact that Israel has no defined borders and never did (Israel is Rothschild is Zionism and their objective is a world without borders for the simple reason that they will control it all). He also speaks as if Israel has a defined and written constitution (which it doesn’t) and assumes that their ongoing “right” to steal land from the Arabs and call it their own is somehow clearly understood and beyond dispute. For a federal leader of one of Canada’s three major political parties to be so misinformed and outrightly stupid is a poignant illustration of just how deep and widespread this fable of Israel truly is.

Once again for the finale.

Israel is controlled by the Jewish Rothschild banking cartel and has been from day one. Period. The information is out there on the net for anyone who seriously wishes to find out the truth. One good place to start might be the archives of RadicalPress.com. There’s no excuse beyond the fear that’s been instilled in Canadians for multiple decades that to question the Jews’ lies is to be “anti-Semitic,” “hate mongering” and “racist.” This is a gargantuan ruse designed to thwart any honest investigation into the foundations that support this false messiah known as Zionism and is exempified in the Canadian legislation known as Sec. 13, a Jew-created law to silence all that I’ve been speaking of here in this article.

I propose otherwise. If you wish to know the truth and be set free of this morbid, demeaning bondage to the delusions of those who, in their ignorance and insecurity, bow down repeatedly in obeisance to this racist, sadistic entity known as Israel, then you must, personally and with conviction, face the fact that your government, your media and your legal systems are all presently in the hands of these vipers. Their generation has come to the fore and like all vicious entities who have gained control over others they will not willingly remove themselves from their positions of power and exploitation. It’s going to take a concerted effort by the majority of Canadians to stand up, show some conviction and courage and demand that their license to kill, destroy and poison, be revoked forever.

The time to do this is yesterday.

Shine your Light for Love, Peace & Justice for All,

Calls for NDP MP to resign after Israel comments

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Read more: http://www.cbc.ca/politics/story/2010/06/15/libby-davies-israel.html#ixzz0r2R7Q6ka

Prime Minister Stephen Harper called on NDP MP Libby Davies to resign as her party’s deputy leader after she suggested Israel has been occupying territory since the country came into existence.

“Mr. Speaker, this is a fundamental denial of Israel’s right to exist,” Harper said in the House of Commons on Tuesday. “It repeats the kind of comments that were made by Helen Thomas on which she was forced to resign and the member of the NDP who said those should be forced to resign as well.”

Thomas was the veteran White House correspondent who resigned after saying Jews in Israel should “get the hell out of Palestine” and “go back to Poland, Germany, America and everywhere else.”

Liberal foreign affairs critic Bob Rae also denounced Davies’ comments.

“To deny the state of Israel’s right to exist and to propose an international campaign of boycotts, divestments and sanctions against a legitimate member of the world community for over 60 years is to reveal a  level of hostility and ignorance that is truly breathtaking,” Rae said in a written statement.

In a media scrum later, Rae argued that Davies’ comments were not simply a slip of the tongue and called for her to step down as deputy leader.

Earlier this month, Davies was interviewed at a rally in Vancouver and asked if she believes the occupation in Israel began in 1948 or 1967. After hesitating, she answered:

“Forty-eight. I mean, it’s the longest occupation in the world. But I mean, I’m not going to argue numbers. It’s too long, right?” She went on to say, “I mean, this is the longest occupation in the world. People  are suffering. I’ve been to the West Bank in Gaza twice so I’ve seen for myself what’s going on.”

The state of Israel was established in 1948.

In the video, Davies is also asked if she supports the international campaign of boycotts, divestments and sanctions against Israel (known as the BDS movement).

“I haven’t even actually gone that far. You gotta understand, I’m probably the strongest supporter in Parliament. There is virtually no information in the political arena or understanding about the BDS movement. People are actually afraid to speak out on this issue.… Elected people who are sympathetic are actually afraid to speak out,” Davies answers.

Later in the video, Davies says she personally supports the BDS movement, adding, however, that she’s not “someone who’s there” but is instead a Canadian politician demanding the Canadian government speak out more on the issues.

The interview was posted on YouTube.

Since her comments were made public, Davies has posted on her website a letter she sent to the editor of The Ottawa Citizen.

“My reference to the year 1948 as the beginning of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory was a serious and completely inadvertent error,” she wrote. “I apologize for this and regret any confusion it has caused. I have always supported a two-state solution to the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict and have never questioned Israel’s right to exist and the Palestinians’ right to a viable state.”

NDP Leader Jack Layton defended Davies Tuesday.

“Libby Davies has apologized and did so immediately around the serious mistake about a date. She has never and our party has never, nor would we ever deny that Israel not only has a right to exist but a right to exist in secure borders in a safe context,” he said.

Layton added that the party does not support the BDS proposal.

Citizen’s Arrest of War Criminal George W. Bush: Court Case in Canada
Anti-Bush Protester Handed Fine, One-Year Probation

by Daryl Slade

Global Research, June 10, 2010

CALGARY — A Chase, B.C., man will not go to jail after being convicted of obstructing a peace officer while protesting former U.S. president George W. Bush’s visit to Calgary last year.

Provincial court Judge Manfred Delong handed a conditional discharge Monday to John Pasquale Boncore, 58, and placed him on probation for a year.

Boncore — who also goes by the name of Splitting the Sky — must make a $1,000 donation to a charity of his choice and pay a $50 victim fine surcharge as conditions of his probation.

Court heard Boncore, who wanted to have Bush arrested as a war criminal, tried to cross a line of city police officers providing security as the former president spoke at the Telus Convention Centre on March 17, 2009.

Boncore told the judge before sentencing that if being fined $1,000 “for trying to apprehend a war criminal of the Bush administration, and possibly stop torture and murder,” then “bring it on.”

Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, who has worked for many years in aboriginal rights with Boncore, a former resident of Buffalo, N.Y., gave a strong character reference on the man’s behalf during Monday’s hearing.

Outside court, Clark condemned the Bush administration for “the most unspeakable aggression” since the Second World War in starting conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. He insisted there shouldn’t be a problem with protesting something you believe in.

“It’s important people see that side of (Bush’s regime),” said Clark. “If (the U.S.) continued this war aggression, it’s going to be a short and difficult future for everybody.”

A defiant Boncore told the judge before sentencing he wasn’t there to incite violence but that he “(believes) in my heart that George W. Bush is a war criminal.”

Crown prosecutor Tracy Davis, who did not seek any jail time, nevertheless called Boncore’s actions that day a well-planned and deliberate action.

Defence lawyer Charles Davison had sought a discharge for his client, who had no prior criminal record and has a good standing in his community.

Delong said the issue did not have anything to do with Boncore’s beliefs but rather what he had done that day.

He called the obstruction a relatively minor offence compared to similar cases.

Former US Attorney-General Ramsey Clark to Speak at the University of Calgary’s Peace Consortium in Defence of Splitting the Sky The Man Who Attempted a Citizens’ Arrest on George W. Bush

Joshua Blakeney
Media Coordinator of Globalization Studies
University of Lethbridge

“George Bush hasn’t suffered at all over the monumental suffering, death, and horror he has caused…no matter how many American soldiers have died on a given day in Iraq (averaging well over two every day), he is always seen with a big smile on his face that same or next day”

Vincent Bugliosi, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, 2008

Ramsey Clark will arrive in the Canadian oil-patch city of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, this coming June 6th and 7th, mounting pressure on attempted a citizen’s arrest on George W. Bush on March 17, 2009 when the former US president was addressing an audience of business people at the TELUS Convention Centre in the downtown of Calgary.2

In his March 2010 trial STS invoked the Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes legislation, which was enacted by the Canadian parliament in 2000, to submit to the court that he was implementing the law by seeking to apprehend Bush, and was unjustly arrested by police who were in effect “aiding and abetting a credibly accused war criminal.”

Former US Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney came to Calgary to attempt to testify in the March trial but was prevented from doing so as the judge shut down the trial earlier than anticipated. Instead McKinney spoke at the University of Calgary in support of Splitting the Sky.3

It is hoped by supporters of justice that the arrival of Ramsey Clark in Calgary will help to publicize this unprecedented case in Canadian legal history, the knowledge of which the state and their media accomplices have made a concerted effort to suppress and censor from the public domain.

Ramsey Clark has a long history of being a thorn in the side of those political elites who would seek to apply the law expediently rather than unanimously. Born in Dallas, Texas, the son of prominent jurist Tom C. Clark, Ramsey Clark witnessed as a young man the Nuremberg trials following World War II. Clark would go on to graduate from the University of Chicago law school and become Attorney General of the United States under the administration of Lyndon Johnson.

Clark has worked tirelessly throughout his career as an outspoken civil rights attorney advocating for many prominent activists and political dissidents. After the 1971 Attica Prison debacle Clark replaced William Kunstler as Splitting the Sky’s legal advocate. STS’s charges were acquitted as a result of Clark’s relentless advocacy.

On April 3, 2010 Clark was elected at a meeting of over 150 lawyers, legal scholars and human rights campaigners, to be the chairperson of a new international campaign to investigate the alleged crimes against humanity committed by the Bush regime.

Global Research reported: “Ramsey Clark emphasized that it is the imperative responsibility of the American people to relentlessly pursue this investigation, and to seek prosecution and indictment inside of the United States…Ramsey Clark made the point that all the war crimes and crimes against humanity flow from the commission of the most supreme crimes which he identified as the Crimes against Peace. This was the finding at the Nuremberg trial, and it is enshrined in the Nuremberg Principles.”6

Clark’s reference to precedents set at Nuremberg, a German city, encourages those of us who would like to see Calgary’s image in the world evolve from one of Harperite cowboys and vulture-capitalists into a city where law enforcement agencies set precedents in human rights jurisprudence and international law with the support of the polity’s residents.

Perhaps such a paradigm shift would ignite a necessary atonement for the state-endorsed despoliation of the Indigenous Peoples of the region’s ancestral resources, lands and waters which has been unpardonably gifted to mainly Texas-based oil and gas conglomerates.

How Judge Manfred Delong will be influenced by Clark’s arrival in Calgary is yet to be seen. Will Judge Delong compound the Culture of Impunity afforded to credibly accused war criminals emanating from Anglo-America – which the Harper-minority government and their equivalents around the world have supported – by “setting an example” and sentencing STS to spend two-more years of his life behind bars and burdening him with a fine of up to $5000? Or will he realize the broader implications of this trial and dismiss the case before the court that STS “obstructed a police officer”?

The more citizens who mobilize in solidarity with STS the less able the state and their media accomplices will be to sweep the profound juridical questions being raised by STS, Clark and others, under the carpet.

The proceedings are as follows:

Ramsey Clark arrives in Calgary, June 6, 2010. He will speak at the University of Calgary, Murray Fraser Hall Room 164, 4pm – 6.30pm.

The sentencing of Splitting the Sky commences on June 7, 2010 at the Calgary Courts Centre.

Iraq in context: Ongoing coverage of Iraqi Election & Aftermath

[Editor’s Note: The following record and analysis of the recent Iraq elections is taken from Layla Anwar’s blog called, An Arab Woman Blues. All I have done is reversed the order of the entries so that the reader can follow the chronological sequence of events without having to read backwards and guess at what Layla wrote in her previous entries.

For most western readers, even those who have already figured out the Zionist media and their endless deception, it is still a major problem for them to discern what is actually occurring in Iraq. I ran into this problem with regard to the Palestine/Israel situation and for many, many years just simply turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to what was going on there because intuitively I knew that all the bullshit in the press was NOT what was actually taking place and without any contrary information (there was contrary information but I had no knowledge of or access to it) I simply shunned trying to figure out what was going on.

This is why I feel that Layla’s longstanding coverage of the results of the 2003 invasion of her country is so vital to the ongoing Iraq dialectic; one that is much more complex and difficult to understand than even that of the surreptitious, supremacist state of Israel. Actually, the cyber underwear of the demon “Israel” have long since dropped, exposing to the world at last the appallingly ugly and disgusting image of a calculated, circumscribed lie that Internet readers now are able to view in all its naked wonderment!

One is tempted to even question whether or not the preoccupation (no pun intended), to the degree that it is emphasized in the leftist literature of today regarding Palestine is deliberate* and premised on creating within the western world a convenient psychic smoke-screen that blocks readers from attempting any serious investigation into or discussion of what is and has been occurring in Iraq since the Zionist/US invasion of March 21, 2003. This would coincide well with Layla’s assessment of the whole Iran v. Israel/USA scenario as well.

I sometimes fear that Layla’s blog is a Vox Clamantis in Deserto so to speak yet it appears to me to be one of the very few glimmers of light and truth and compassion emanating forth from the hellish remnant of what was once the cradle of Western civilization. God grant her continued courage and strength to keep on keeping on.

Please pass this post along to other truth seekers.]

Iraq’s Elections Results — FINAL RESULTS

UPDATE 2 – Final Results – rushed transcript

After much waiting and too many speeches from the HEC, half of which had strong Farsee accents and one Western one from UN/UNAMI who congratulated the Iraqis on their election celebrations and purple revolution – mentioning that there were many intimidations as well as irregularities, but the UN in its “objective and impartial role” did not notice any major fraud and that those irregularities were part of the election process…oh really ?!

Anyways, about 5 guys had to give the election results, a bunch of politically immature clowns, and here are the results:

Splitting the Sky Versus the War Criminals

Edna Spennato

On 17 March 2009 in Calgary, Canada, Splitting the Sky (aka John Boncore) was arrested and charged with obstruction (as he fully expected) when he tried to serve George W. Bush with a citizen’s warrant, and to arrest him to stand trial for war crimes and torture. In doing so, he sacrificed himself for ALL of us who are concerned with Truth, Peace and Justice. His trial took place on 8 and 9 March, and judgment will be passed on 7 June 2010.  The trial was closed down by the state after 2 days, though he was originally given 5 days to present evidence of war crimes and torture, as well as the involvement of the Bush regime in the events of 9/11, to justify his actions under the legal principle of “civil resistance”.

STS needs our support… Updates on the trial at his home page and blog.

Citizen’s Arrest of George W. Bush for War Crimes – The Trial of “Splitting the Sky”

by Prof. Anthony J. Hall

Who and What is on Trial?

When Splitting the Sky broke through police lines in his attempt to conduct a citizen’s arrest of former US president George W. Bush, the Mohawk freedom fighter pierced a thick wall of tyranny. He broke through a tight phalanx of state protection for the perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and crimes against the peace.

With his courageous act, Splitting the Sky announced the unwillingness of millions of global citizens to tolerate any longer the culture of impunity that places a small, interlinked global plutocracy above the law….

9/11 Truth is “Splitting the Sky”

by Peter Zaza

…John Boncore was born in Buffalo, New York on January 7, 1952. His Mohawk name, Dacajeweiah, translated into English means “Splitting the Sky”. From the age of seven he endured many years in New York foster homes and youth detention centres where he was ill-treated. Eventually he would become the only man convicted as a ringleader of the infamous 1971 Attica State Prison rebellion in upstate New York, in the course of which 43 inmates were killed. This event has inspired several movies — “Against the Wall” (1994) starring Samuel L. Jackson, and “Attica” (1980) starring Morgan Freeman — and documentaries including “Attica” (1974), and “The Ghosts of Attica” (2001). He was listed by former UN Ambassador Andrew Young of the Carter administration as the number one political prisoner in the USA in 1975.

Splitting the Sky founded an organization to unite all Indigenous Peoples into a great confederation called the League of Indigenous Sovereign Nations of the Western Hemisphere (LISN). In 1995 he was the Sun Dance Chief at Gustafsen Lake, British Columbia, during the Gustafsen Lake Standoff, which was precipitated by a rancher who attempted to evict the Sun Dancers from what he claimed was his property. The incident turned into a major protest against the occupation of unceded native land. Splitting the Sky was an outspoken critic of the government’s handling of the incident and was among those who raised the question of so-called “Aboriginal Title” under international law. Specifically, aboriginal title is enshrined under the Royal Proclamation of 1763, which is validated as an aboriginal right in section (35) of the Canadian Constitution.

On September 10th, 2001, Splitting the Sky and his family were checking out of the Marriott Hotel one block from the World Trade Center in New York. Had he stayed an extra day or two, as was originally planned, he and his family might have suffered the fate of 400 others at that location who lost their lives during the 9/11 tragedy. As if by some intuition, he and his wife decided to cut short their stay and get out of New York City. While many researchers for 9/11 Truth deal with the never ending incongruities and falsehoods of the government’s story regarding 9/11, or the various examples of forensic evidence proving controlled demolition, Splitting the Sky has studied the complex web of people and organizations he believes to be the authors of this crime. Through careful deconstruction of the financial entities involved, as well shining the light on those specific figures who occupy the principle seats of power within those structures, he follows the age old maxims of criminology which compel us to “follow the money”, as well as determine “who benefits”….

A RadicalPress Exclusive Interview with Splitting the Sky

(Editor’s Note: The following Two Part interview with Splitting the Sky aka John Boncore took place via telephone conversation back in September of 2000. Due to the limited extent of the newspaper’s coverage back during that period the interview did not make it onto the Internet. Today, with Splitting the Sky back in the news online after his dramatic attempt this past September to make a citizen’s arrest of the War Criminal, ex-President of the USA, George W. Bush in Calgary, Alberta, it seems appropriate to re-issue this dramatic activist’s interview with Radical Press.

Readers are bound to find it an exciting, informative, provocative, highly enlightening and spell-binding expose of a life of one of today’s foremost radical activists. Ed.)

A Radical Interview with John Splitting the Sky, Gustafsen Lake Defender

Vol. 3 No. 3 The Radical October, 2000

 

By Arthur Topham

 

©RadicalPress.com

 

Part One

 

(The Radical is most appreciative for having the opportunity to present the following interview with John Splitting the Sky Hill. As readers are about to realize Mr. Hill has led a most remarkable life; one fraught almost from the onset with challenges, dangers and responsibilities that the average person would cringe at the thought of having to endure.

 

For all of John’s trials though, he has emerged- tempered by the fires of life- as a leading spokesperson for native sovereignty issues and a living example of the persevering spirit of resistance that has kept the aboriginal people of this continent strong.

 

This interview will be covered over the next two issues of The Radical due to it’s length.

In short it’s an abbreviated odyssey, an epitomizing epic of one man’s struggle to maintain his dignity and spirit in a world where native traditional values are no longer given the respect and honour that they once knew. John Splitting the Sky Hill’s story of how he survived a brutal prison system in New York state only to end up playing a major role in the Gustafsen Lake Stand off during 1995 will surely come as a major surprise to readers who only heard the one-sided reports that came from the corporate press during that time.

 

It’s a riveting tale with a message as relevant today as it was almost thirty years ago. Ed.)

 

RAD:   John it’s now been almost 10 years since the Oka uprising occurred and 5 years since the stand-off at Gustafsen Lake just west of 100 Mile House, B.C. The  incident at Gustafsen Lake in many ways marked a turning point here in British Columbia for the manner in which our provincial government conducted itself toward native disputes. You and Wolverine, aka William Ignace or Jonesy were to play some major parts at Gusfafsen Lake. Hopefully this interview will allow Radical readers to gain a much clearer insight into what was going on behind the corporate media’s blockade of information that the general public were subjected to back then. But prior to getting into that I would like to ask you if you could talk about your own personal history and how it was that a native rights activist like yourself, originally from New York state, USA ended up running a Sundance ceremony at Gustafsen Lake.

 

While in Vancouver for the Under the Volcano festival in mid-August I heard

you speaking in a workshop. At that time you mentioned that you had been directly involved in the infamous Attica Uprising in New York back in 1971 and ended up being the only player in that incident that did time. Let’s begin then with some background on how it was that at the ripe old age of 19 you became involved in one of America’s most bloody uprisings of the last century.

 

StS:   Well, at the time of this talk I’m 48 years old and I’ll be 49 next January. I was born in Buffalo, NY. My mother is from the Mohawk Nation in Branford, Ontario and so my roots are basically here in Canada. As well my Grandmother was a Cree woman from Fort Qu’Appelle,  Saskatchewan. So like I said my roots are in Canada but my mother married my father who was from Buffalo, NY. He passed away though in 1957. He worked for U.S. Rubber and had been commissioned by the company, along with ten other men, to spray paint one of their utility tanks, these massive tanks that they had at the plant there. They had been told by the company that they didn’t need gas masks but all the eleven men ended up dying from toxic inhalation.

 

RAD: Oh, Christ!

 

StS:  And so eleven of them died and it wasn’t too long after that the child welfare department in Buffalo came and snatched up me and my sisters and put us into the foster care system.

 

RAD:  How old would you have been then?

 

StS:  Well I was 7 years old then and my sisters were like 6, 5, 4 and 3 respectively. And from that point on we were all separated into different foster homes.

 

I then went through a number of boarding school situations and orphanages. The boarding schools were like the residential schools here in Canada in fact the residential schools pretty much got their ideas from the boarding schools in the states.

 

So having gone through those schools for a number of years and resisting the kind of abusive treatment and brutality that existed within these joints I began to gain a reputation for being what you would say was an “incorrigible” person. I detail a lot of this information in my soon to be released Autobiography of  Splitting the Sky Along With My Wife Sandra Bruderer subtitled: From Attica to Gustafsen Lake.

Zionist-controlled Calgary Court shuts down Splitting the Sky v. War Criminal G.W. Bush proceedings in day two of trial

Calgary Police “taking down” Splitting the Sky while attempting to make a citizen’s arrest of War Criminal George W. Bush in Calgary, Alberta on September 17, 2009.
________________________________________________________________________________

Arthur Topham RP Publisher

Editor’s Note:

It’s fairly evident from the manner in which this case was handled that the Zionist-controlled media in Canada and elsewhere doesn’t want the issue of Bush the Barbarous brought to the attention of the general public. A protracted trial in which credible authorities might offer evidence in the defense of the accused and, God forbid, Splitting the Sky is given an opportunity to actually voice his convictions, is not the Zionist way of doing business. Better to just quash the whole damn thing and once the issue has filtered out of the public’s mind then bring in a ruling further down the road to tyranny and censorship.

Splitting the Sky

It’s my humble, yet considered opinion, that Canada’s judiciary, like the msm, is so infiltrated, permeated and manipulated by these Zionist/Jew lobbyists and their lawyer henchmen and women, that our courts today are as likely to spawn honest and just decisions as the Zionist-controlled msm is likely to present information that hasn’t first been run through the Orwellian Double Speak wringer prior to general publication.

Both these institutions (and others) bear witness to the fact that our civil and legal infrastructures are firmly in the hands of foreign, seditious entities who are using them for power and control and manipulation of the collective mindset of the Canadian public while their subsidiary organs of control, i.e. the multinational corporations, be they oil or ag or pharma or cult or whatever, drain this country of its natural resource wealth and human potential.

Due to the Zionist’s inordinate and immoral power via their financial and media influences men like Anthony J. Hall are forced to equate the machinations of the courts and the police and media to secondary and tertiary linguistic labels such as “oil conglomerates” all in order to escape the deadly-poisoned arrows of the Zionists who let fly their “anti-Semitic,” “racist,” and “hate”-tipped barbs at anyone who comes near to calling a spade a spade or a Zionist a Zionist.

War Criminal psychopath G.W. Bush, like his War Criminal psychopathic partner in crime, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, are mere puppets to the Israeli Jew lobby; flunkies and lackeys and cretins of the most despicable type who, under their false pretense of being “Christians,” carry out the dirty work of slaughtering the sons and daughters of American and Canadian citizens in imperialist wars of aggression against innocent foreign nations all for the benefit of these Zionist interlopers who haunt and invade our very lives via their omnipresence throughout the media and Canada’s judiciary.


More than just a touch of levity as War Criminal Harper reaches out to G.W. Bush
_________________________________________________________________________

Well, these traitorous intruders have been releasing their bolts of vituperative lightning at me, my family and my publishing business for over two years in a relentless attempt to silence my voice and the voices of countless others whose opinions and views I carry via RadicalPress.com and the Yahoo group site known as Anti-Zionist Canada. For the Full Monty on the complaint case involving RadicalPress.com and B’nai Brith Canada please see: http://www.radicalpress.com/?page_id=995 . They literally hate to see views and opinions and ideas and truths that conflict with their own morbid, draconian and hate-filled mission of destroying every nation state on the face of this globe in order to replace them with their “International” aka Zionist New World Order template of global governance.

What should have been a media bonus for the 911 Truth movement and the supporters of Palestinian sovereignty and a solid, direct hit on the forces of darkness that now control the global political and financial marketplace of ideas and opinion has once again been nullified and thwarted thanks to the machinations of those within the system as it now exists.

If we are ever to gain ground in this protracted battle with the Zionist forces we’re going to have to sooner than later face the fact that we must call these misfits by their real name and publicly identify them and the organizations through whom they operate in order to infiltrate our governmental, civic and social/cultural structures. Pussy-footing around this salient and critical factor because of fear and doubt will only prolong the time when the shyte must inevitably hit the proverbial fan and all fecal hell breaks loose.

Let us try our best in the interim time period to keep Splitting the Sky’s courageous efforts alive.

Shine your Light for Love, Peace & Justice for All,

Bush League Justice in Judge Manfred Delong’s Calgary Court


Anthony J. Hall
Professor of Globalization Studies
University of Lethbridge
10 March, 2010

Judge Manfred Delong shut down the trial of Splitting The Sky versus George W. Bush on the second day of proceedings. The court denied STS his frequently emphasized request to have two witnesses give evidence in his defense. Those witnesses were myself and Cynthia McKinney. The trial came to an end just as Ms. McKinney arrived in Calgary from London. The US-based oil conglomerates active throughout Alberta form the core business constituency of the Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who represents a Calgary riding in Parliament.

The court accepted two documents as evidence for the defense. One is Gail Davidson’s widely disseminated legal opinion for Lawyer’s Against the War. STS and I studied this document closely in the days leading up to my friend being arrested for his arrest attempt. LAW’s legal opinion highlighted some of the evidence, statutes and treaties to brand Bush as a “credibly accused war criminal” that should not be allowed into Canada. Prior to Bush’s touching down in Calgary to address an audience of oil executives, Davidson’s documentation was distributed widely to officials of the Harper government and Canada’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

The other exhibit for the defense was my own paper that I originally presented at an invited academic venue at the University of Winnipeg. It has been published under a variety of titles on the Internet, including at Global Research.ca, 911 Blogger.com, 9/11 Truth.org and Voltairenet in both French and English. My initial title for it is “Bush League Justice: Should George W. Bush Be Arrested in Calgary Alberta and Tried for International Crimes?”

Delong will deliver his ruling on June 7. The case for the prosecution both revealed and obscured much about the new police strategies being employed throughout North America to monitor, manage, divide and spin doctor demonstrators seeking to call attention to their political dissent. In my opinion the Crown’s chief agent of prosecution, Tracy Davis, acted more as an advocate and defender of the police rather than as a representative of the Canadian people through Her Majesty as she is required to do according the constitutional tradition of the British Commonwealth.

Splitting the Sky v. War Criminal G.W. Bush – Calgary, Alberta March 8, 2010

http://www.splittingthesky.net/
http://splittingthesky.blogspot.com/

Editor’s Note:

I first met John “Dac” Boncore, aka Splitting the Sky while covering the 11th Annual Under the Volcano festival in North Vancouver back in August of 2000.

On the Saturday prior to the main Sunday event in Cates Park Dac, as he usually goes by with friends, was giving a talk at the Brittania Community Centre on Commercial Drive in East Vancouver and I was there manning a booth and selling my alternative monthly newspaper The Radical.

Splitting the Sky’s talk centered on the events surrounding the 1995 shoot out at Gustafsen Lake. Since that time he’d spent the ensuing years doing extensive research and writing on the goverment and military involvement in the incident. As he said, “The RCMP – with the blessings of the provincial NDP’s Attorney General, and now Premier, Ujjal Dosanjh – moved in with 400 police with dog teams, airplanes, helicopters, armoured personel carriers, grenades, landmines, M16 and C7 assault rifles, hollow point bullets (prohibited by the Geneva Convention) and 50-calibre machine guns.”

They were out to kill Wolverine Ignace Jones and himself but their grandiose plot never worked out and now Dac was coming back to haunt them with their litany of lies and cover-ups all exposed in a new video he had just produced called, Above the Law – part 2.

I had not seen such a dynamic speaker/performer in years. Dac held his listeners spellbound as he retold the incidents at Gustafsen Lake with drama and precision of thought and humour. Here, I said to myself, is a man strong, proud and keenly aware of who he is and what he’s struggling for.After his talk we chatted and agreed to get in touch for an extensive interview which later appeared in a Two-part series in the October and November editions of The Radical. In my introduction to Part One of the interview I wrote:”The Radical is most appreciative for having the opportunity to present the following interview with John Splitting the Sky Hill. As readers are about to realize Mr. Hill has led a most remarkable life; one fraught almost from the onset with challenges, dangers and responsibilities that the average person would cringe at the thought of having to endure.

For all of John’s trials though, he has emerged – tempered by the fires of life – as a leading spokesperson for native sovereignty issues and a living example of the persevering spirit of resistance that has kept the aboriginal people of this continent strong.

Those who read Dac’s interview published by The Radical Press would not be surprised in the least that this same courageous person would take it upon himself to try and make a citizen’s arrest of the notorious War Criminal George W. Bush Jr. when he came to Calgary on September 17, 2009.

Tomorrow, March 8, 2010 in a law court in Calgary, Alberta Splitting the Sky will be on trial once again, this time as STS has stated, for performing an act which Canadian government authorities should have taken responsibility for fulfilling.

In a speech given at the December 5, 2009 forum hosted by Montreal 9/11 Truth Anthony J. Hall, Professor of Globalization Studies at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta Canada and a longstanding supporter of Splitting the Sky’s activism stated:

“When Splitting the Sky broke through  police lines in his attempt to conduct a citizen’s arrest of former US President, George W. Bush, the Mohawk freedom fighter pieced a thick wall of tyranny. He broke through a tight phalanx of state protection for the perpetrators of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and crimes against the peace.

With his courageous act, Splitting the sky announced the unwillingness of millions of global citizens to tolerate any longer the culture of impunity that places a small, interlinked global plutocracy above the law. By breaking police lines, the Attica brother and American indian movement activist scouted a route of liberation for those of us seeking to get out from under the weight of complicity in international crime committed in our name. We are deeply implicated in the state terror permeating the 9/11 wars because it is our tax dollars taht fund these imperial assaults.

Splitting the Sky’s action in Calgary highlights the abject failure of law enforcement agencies to do their job. It highlights the unwillingness of police and those who direct them to apply the law equitably and independently.

When he broke through police lines last March, Splitting the Sky built on the message of Muntadar Al-Zaidi, the Baghdad journalist who fired his shoes at the departing US President. Al-Zaidi’s symbolic shot was seen and applauded around the world. By dramatizing the role of so-called law enforcers as protectors of international crime, Splitting the Sky highlighted that many millions of global citizens have seen more than enough evidence to understand that Georg W. Bush and his war cabinet are credible accused war criminals. If we lived in a world where the integrity of law prevailed over the power of money, political corruption and military might, the Cheney-Rumsfeld-Bush syndicate of war profiteers would have been apprehended long ago to face charges in a properly constituted court of international law.

When Splitting the Sky presents himself this coming March to a provincial court in Calgary, Alberta to face criminal charges for obstruction of justice, who and what is really on trial? Whose sense of of justice was really obstructed? I predict that the light of future history will cast the trial of Splitting the Sky as an important point of departure for a process of people’s jurisprudence directed at bringing to justice those responsible for the highest order of international crime.”

YEARS OF DECEIT: US OPENLY ACCEPTS BIN LADEN LONG DEAD
December 5, 2009

by Gordon Duff/STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

Gordon Duff

BIN LADEN NEVER MENTIONED IN McCHRYSTAL REPORT OR OBAMA SPEECH

“HUNT FOR BIN LADEN” A NATIONAL SHAME

Conservative commentator, former Marine Colonel Bob Pappas has been saying for years that bin Laden died at Tora Bora and that Senator Kerry’s claim that bin Laden escaped with Bush help was a lie.  Now we know that Pappas was correct.  The embarassment of having Secretary of State Clinton talk about bin Laden in Pakistan was horrific.  He has been dead since December 13, 2001 and now, finally, everyone, Obama, McChrystal, Cheney, everyone who isn’t nuts is finally saying what they have known for years.

However, since we lost a couple of hundred of our top special operations forces hunting for bin Laden after we knew he was dead, is someone going to answer for this with some jail time?  Since we spent 200 million dollars on “special ops” looking for someone we knew was dead, who is going to jail for that?  Since Bush, Rumsfeld and Cheney continually talked about a man they knew was dead, now known to be for reasons of POLITICAL nature, who is going to jail for that?  Why were tapes brought out, now known to be forged, as legitimate intelligence to sway the disputed 2004 election in the US?  This is a criminal act if there ever was one.

In 66 pages, General Stanley McChrystal never mentions Osama bin Laden.  Everything is “Mullah Omar”now.  In his talk at West Point, President Obama never mentioned Osama bin Laden.  Col. Pappas makes it clear, Vice President Cheney let it “out of the bag” long ago.  Bin Laden was killed by American troops many many years ago.

America knew Osama bin Laden died December 13, 2001.  After that, his use was hardly one to unite America but rather one to divide, scam and play games.  With bin Laden gone, we could have started legitimate nation building in Afghanistan instead of the eternal insurgency that we invented ourselves.

The Many Faces of Al-Qaeda

by Layla Anwar

January 5, 2010

A daring title but one well worth pondering…

This topic has been on my mind with a growing urgency and now is the time to face it head on…

It is no easy subject as so much has already been said about who and what constitutes Al-Qaeda. Tons of literature and films have been produced since 9/11, all claiming to know who Al-Qaeda is.

I don’t know for sure who Al-Qaeda is nor do I have immediate answers…but what I do know is how to link dots…I love linking dots. Don’t you ?

So I spend my thinking time linking dots…picking details here and there, gathering them together to get the bigger picture that will take me closer to the Truth…I am no investigative journalist, but I do love detective work.

So who is Al-Qaeda ?

Wrong questions give wrong answers. The question to ask is – Does Al-Qaida as an ORGANIZATION really exist ?

Now that is a much smarter question to start speculating with…

“Christmas” in Iraq. By Layla Anwar

“Christmas” in Iraq
By Layla Anwar

December 25, 2009

The Christians of Iraq have had it REAL BAD since 2003. They have had it as bad as the Arab Sunnis, this group that has seen its population dwindle in Baghdad alone from 45% to around 15 % due to  ethnic cleansing, torture, arbitrary arrests, exile and targeted killings.

The number of Christians in Iraq has also dwindled to a mere 400,000 left. Many were killed, and a whole lot exiled… They have had their clergy assassinated, their churches bombed and have been excluded from important posts in the sectarian Shiite government put in place by none other than a so-called Christian superpower – the swamp of criminality and filth called America and not so great Britain.

There are virtually no Christians left in Iraq. They were the first inhabitants of this land and the first community of people to receive the message of Christ and embrace Christianity. The Chaldeans followed by the Assyrians are one of the most ancient Christians of the Middle East.

There are only a very few Christian families left in Southern Iraq, a handful in Baghdad, and those in the North, like the Nineveh province, where the majority of Chaldeans live, are being evicted from their homes, harassed daily, killed and pushed into exile.

Only yesterday, 2 churches in Mosul have been bombed again and the Archbishop of Mosul has not ceased sending out messages to the puppet government  with “please save us”, “please protect us”….

Many Iraqi Christians lay the blame on the puppet sectarian government and on the Kurdish warlords for their plight. And rightly so.

The Christians of Iraq have never experienced a level of discrimination, harassment and violence like they have since 2003. It is truly unprecedented.

And each time I hear of one more attack against the Iraqi Christian community, my blood boils with rage and my heart breaks with more sadness… and in my mind the major culprit remains that piece of shit called America.

I am no longer into Christmas myself. I used to buy a tree and decorate it, visited family and friends, bought presents and sent cards… not anymore. The same applies to the Muslim Eid. All these festivities have become devoid of meaning for me.  I go through the motions on each occasion but inside I feel nothing…

I feel nothing because there is no longer a sense of community, and even those of us in the diaspora of the mass exodus, are having a very tough time re-creating it.  Our families are split apart, dispersed, some have been imprisoned, some tortured, some kidnapped, some in need, some killed… and around these “holiday” seasons, the sore wounds re-open, glaring us in the face…

Yet, as an act of defiance, my family insisted on having the traditional Christmas eve dinner. So I went along with it…I ate and watched TV. That was my Christmas eve.

I zapped and zapped to the annoyance of everyone else and stopped zapping when a whole mass ceremony was aired live from Iraq on Al-Sharqiya TV, who dedicated this whole evening to the Christians of Iraq. I was most pleased with this TV station for doing so.

I love listening to the liturgy in Arabic mixed in with some Aramaic. Mass usually puts me to sleep but not this kind of mass. I watched eagerly the faces of those seated. What they were wearing, their facial expressions, the look in their eyes, any sign for me to interpret…

The women had their best clothes on, most had their heads covered with a thin veil made of dentelle, and they sat separate from the men, on one aisle, while the men, mostly in suits, sat on the other…I noticed they were fewer men than women and the men all seemed to be either above 55 or below 20. In other words the age group of 20 to 50 were absent. I wondered what had happened to them…

It was a Chaldean mass. The bishop had to borrow St John the Baptist church from the Assyrian community to conduct this Christmas eve mass and it was in Erbil, Northern Iraq.

The commentator said that in Baghdad and Mosul, the Christians were keeping a low profile this Christmas, “out of respect for Ashurra”. Ashurra is the month that commemorates the killing of Imam Hussein and is considered by the Shiites as a month of grieving and “repentance”, accompanied by the traditional self flagellation….

Since when do the Christians of Iraq stop attending Christmas eve mass because of Ashurra ? This is unheard of before… Clearly, they feel threatened enough not to conduct mass on Christmas and in an act of self protection they have abstained from celebrating the birth of Christ.

The priest then gave a short sermon/speech, praying for all those who were killed, and all those who could not attend because they did not have the means to travel to Erbil, and all those who are not being employed because of their faith and all the students who have been kicked out of schools because of their faith…He prayed that Allah guides those responsible, he also said that Christmas is not about eating and drinking, and buying and celebrating, Christmas is about contemplating what Allah’s message to the world is all about with the virgin birth of Jesus.

The priest used the word ALLAH, and asked Allah to protect the Christians of Iraq, all believers and Iraq herself.

I am stressing on the fact that the priest used the word ALLAH, because a lot of westerners are totally ignorant about Arab Christians and their use of the language when it comes to God. They think ALLAH is only the God of the Muslims – which of course is absolute nonsense.

Listening to this mass and the sermon made me even sadder…

Memories rushed before my eyes, and I remembered my grandmother with her veil and rosary and my grandfather and many others…and I remembered our gatherings, the warmth, the joy…the meaning…the love.

I also remembered Tariq Aziz, the loyal, righteous, faithful, kind man who is still in an American jail in IRAQ, very ill, and now in his 70’s. I remembered him and his family in exile. And I don’t know if they read me or not…but if they do — know that I have not forgotten you.

And I felt the irony, the derision, the utter hypocrisy of the West…the Christian West who through its occupation crusade has totally devastated the first Christians of this world, the Christians of the East, the Christians of Iraq.
