Revisiting Israel’s Terror War on Gaza

By Steve Lendman

Revisiting Israel’s Terror War on Gaza

Despite no legitimate provocation, Israel began terror bombing Gaza on December 27, 2008. Invasion followed, attacking innocent civilian men, women and children for over three weeks, using missiles, bombs, shells, and illegal weapons against defenseless people. Mass slaughter and destruction ensued.

Brazen crimes of war and against humanity were committed. No culpable officials were held responsible. Security Council no-fly zone protection wasn’t ordered. International community leaders approved or were silent. Washington was complicit by supplying Israel with weapons, munitions, and encouragement. Obama acts the same as Bush, waging a quartet of lawless wars and using proxies in others.

Operation Cast Lead remains one of history’s greatest crimes. Yet Israel was green-lighted to wage it with impunity, what it’s done numerous times in its history, besides terrorizing Palestinians by:

— illegal military occupation;

— collective punishment and intimidation;

— air and ground attacks;

— isolating Gaza illegally under siege;

— intermittently bombing and shooting its residents, including noncombatant farmers, fishermen and children;

— regular residential neighborhood incursions;

— bulldozing homes;

— dispossessing residents;

— land seizures;

— arbitrary arrests;

— torture as official policy, including against women and children;

— targeted assassinations;

— denying refugees their right of return;

— movement and free expression restrictions;

— violence, not peaceful coexistence;

— confrontation, not diplomacy;

— war, not peace; and

— denying Palestinian sovereignty, as well as equal justice, human rights and civil liberty protections.

Israel is a rogue terror state, a democracy in name only affording rights solely to Jews. Remember Cast Lead, one of history’s greatest crimes. Justice Richard Goldstone documented them convincingly in his 575 page report titled, “Human Rights in Palestine and Other Occupied Arab Territories: Report of the United Nations Fact Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict.”

It covered Operation Cast Lead, the Gaza siege, the impact of Israel’s West Bank military occupation, and much more, including:

— events between the “ceasefire” period from June 18, 2008 to Israel’s initiated hostilities on December 27, 2008;

— applicable international law;

— Occupied Gaza under siege;

— an overview of Cast Lead;

— obligations of both sides to protect civilians;

— indiscriminate Israeli attacks on civilians, causing many hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries;

— “the use of certain weapons;”

— attacking “the foundations of civilian life in Gaza: destruction of industrial infrastructure, food production, water installations, sewage treatment plants and housing;”

— using Palestinians as human shields;

— detention and incarceration of Gazans during the conflict;

— the IDF’s objectives and strategy;

— impact of the siege and military operations on Gazans and their human rights;

— the detention of the Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit;

— internal Gaza violence – Hamas v. Fatah;

— the Occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem;

— Israel’s treatment of Palestinians in the West Bank, including excessive or lethal force during demonstrations;

— Palestinians in Israeli prisons;

— Israeli violations of free movement and access rights;

— Fatah targeting Hamas supporters in the West Bank, and restricting free assembly and expression;

— rocket and mortar attacks against Israeli civilians;

— repression of dissent, access to information, and treatment of human rights defenders in Israel;

— Israeli responses to war crimes charges;

— proceedings by Palestinian authorities;

— universal jurisdiction;

— reparations; and

— conclusions and recommendations.

It collected enough information “of a credible and reliable nature….to make a finding in fact.” It established clear evidence of crimes, determining they were deliberate or reckless. An accompanying press release said:

“(T)here is evidence indicating serious violations of international human rights and humanitarian law were committed by Israel during the Gaza conflict, and that Israel committed actions amounting to war crimes, and possibly crimes against humanity.”

It explained that Israel falsely used the pretext of rocket attacks to attack “the people of Gaza as a whole” illegally.

Palestinian Centre for Human Rights Report Remembers Cast Lead

In its December 2010 report titled, “The Illegal Closure of the Gaza Strip: Collective Punishment of the Civilian Population,” the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) remembered Cast Lead, saying it exacerbated isolation:

— killing over 1,400 Gazans, mostly civilians;

— injuring thousands more, many seriously; and

— causing “extensive destruction of houses and civilian infrastructure, including schools, hospitals, and industry.”

Moreover, Israel violated Security Council Resolution 1860 (January 8, 2009), calling for “full withdrawal of Israeli forces,” as well as “unimpeded humanitarian assistance” for Gazan victims. As a result, deepening crisis ensued.

On April 1, Richard Goldstone’s Washington Post op-ed headlined, “Reconsidering the Goldstone Report on Israel and war crimes,” saying:

“Our report found evidence potential war crimes and possibly crimes against humanity by both Israel and Hamas.” The latter ones, in fact, were minor by comparison, responding only to Israeli provocations.

Israel’s, however, “were based on the deaths of and injuries to civilians in situations where….evidence (pointed to no) other reasonable conclusion.”

Goldstone, however, softened his initial condemnation by commending Israel’s Cast Lead inquiry, ignoring how all its internal investigations whitewash crimes of war and against humanity – most recently the Gaza and May 2010 Freedom Flotilla massacres.

According to PCHR:

“Rather than uphold the rule of law, the Israeli investigative and judicial system is artfully manipulated to provide an illusion of investigative and judicial rigour, while systematically perpetuating pervasive impunity” for crimes too extreme to ignore.

Whitewash Examples

On April 29, 2009, IDF Chief of Staff, General Gabi Ashkenazi authorized publication of the findings of five military investigate teams. Unsurprisingly, they concluded that:

“(T)throughout the fighting in Gaza, the IDF operated in accordance with international law. The IDF maintained a high professional and moral level while facing an enemy that aimed to terrorize Israeli civilians whilst taking cover amidst uninvolved civilians in the the Gaza strip and using them as human shields.”

It continued at some length justifying brazen Israeli crimes of war and against humanity. In contrast, a year after hostilities ended, Human Rights Watch called Israeli attacks “indiscriminate, disproportionate (and) at times seemingly deliberate, in violation of the laws of war,” condemning IDF investigations as no “substitute for impartial and thorough investigations into laws-of-war violations” they whitewashed.

In his April 1 op-ed, Goldstone failed to explain and denounce them. Instead, he defended the indefensible.

Netanyahu’s (Jacob) Turkel commission investigation of Israel’s Freedom Flotilla massacre also produced lies, distortions, omissions, false conclusions, and exoneration of cold-blooded murder, ordered by top government and military officials who got off scot-free like Cast Lead criminals.

Specifically, it concluded that Israel’s (illegal siege) does not break international law….(and) there were clear indications that the flotilla intended to break the naval blockade….By clearly resisting capture, the Mavi Marmara had become a military objective,” despite on board activists having no weapons and offering no resistance. Saying so was a lie.

In contrast, an independent UN Human Rights Council investigation “concluded that a series of violations of international law, including international humanitarian and human rights law, were committed by the Israeli forces during the interception of the flotilla and during the detention of passengers in Israel prior to deportation.”

It added that Israel’s attack:

“was unnecessary, disproportionate, excessive and inappropriate and resulted in the wholly avoidable killing and maiming of a large number of civilian passengers.”

Also that at least six of the dead were killed by “extra-legal, arbitrary and summary executions,” some shot multiple times in the head at close range.

Moreover, similar tactics were used before, during, and after Cast Lead, facts Richard Goldstone knows and should have explained instead of suggesting civilians may not have been “intentionally targeted as a matter of policy.”

Indeed they always are under Israel’s “Dahiya Doctrine,” targeting civilians as official policy. Named after the Beirut suburb IDF attacks destroyed in the 2006 Lebanon war, it’s how all Israeli wars are waged. IDF Northern Commander Gabi Eisenkot explained, saying:

“What happened in the Dahiya quarter of Beirut in 2006 will happen in every village from which Israel is fired on. We will apply disproportionate force at the heart of the enemy’s weak spot (civilians) and cause great damage and destruction. From our standpoint, these are not civilian villages (towns or cities), they are military bases. This is not a recommendation. This is a plan. And it has been approved.”

It also prioritizes damaging or destroying assets, economic interests, and centers of civilian power, requiring long-term reconstruction even though international law prohibits attacking civilians and non-military related targets. Israel spurned international law in Cast Lead, against humanitarian Flotilla activists, and in all its belligerent confrontations.

Instead of condemning this policy, Goldstone softened his criticism, contradicting his detailed findings, replicated by other reputable human rights studies, unequivocally accusing Israel of crimes of war and against humanity.

A Final Comment

On March 25, the UN Human Rights Council adopted a resolution, urging the General Assembly address Israel’s Cast Lead impunity by asking the Security Council to request investigation, action and resolution by the International Criminal Criminal Court (ICC).

For over two years, justice for thousands of Palestinian victims has been denied. Gaza remains illegally under siege. Meaningful action is demanded. Crimes this great can’t be tolerated.

Under Chapter VII of the UN Charter, the Security Council can request ICC action. Washington’s veto, of course, looms. Nonetheless, it’s high time other members demanded, shamed, and did whatever it takes to assure long-suffering Palestinians justice. Then do it for other victims of injustice instead of authorizing war on Libya when it should have acted resolutely to prevent it.

There is no Fate but what we Make

(ASSOCIATED PRESS VIA ABC NEWS, DET. GREG SEMENDINGER)

By Jon Bourn

We are told that airplanes filled with jet fuel melted two towers that primarily consist of steel at temperatures that are not possible with jet fuel. Even stranger, we are told an array of Saudi’s (a country we did not retaliate against) used utility knifes as weapons to murder and take-over airline pilots which was enough to fumble down NORAD among other national defense systems. We are told fighters were grounded, we are told a gigantic airplane disappeared inside the Pentagon and into a hole in Pennsylvania, we see buildings turned into dust that had no previous damage based on a logic that has never before occurred. Why would so much dust appear without implosion? How can towers fall so perfectly as building seven (third tower that fell that day) at free fall speed without implosion? Why was this tower not included with the commission report?

 

Why have we not been provided answers to these questions that are part of an thorough investigation? The photo shown was obtained by ABC with a Freedom of Information request, view gallery photos shared here.

Please take a long and thoughtful glance at the photo and begin to ask the following questions. If steel has melted, then where did the momentum derive from? Where is the fire? The fires were apparently about to go out when the buildings fell. Where are the core steel beams as we know jet fuel is not hot enough to melt at less than 3000 degrees, a temperature never reached? Wouldn’t there have been some steel bending and flying around? Concrete does not pulverize itself completely when falling, it stacks up, and there would be visible chunks. Look at all the other fires and disasters where buildings fall on others. Look at how buildings fall when they are imploded called (controlled demolition). Have you ever seen a building fall that was not imploded, the tallest buildings in the world let’s say, and fall in only 10 seconds without any pancake resistance? Why do we only see plumes of dust in controlled demolitions? Why were there so many reports of explosions going off inside the buildings? Are we to believe that all this is simply possible by visiting Home Depot’s tool department?

How is it possible to identify the not-so-dead terrorist so quickly when they are not on any of the passenger manifests? The amount of coincidence involved and passively accepted in relation to the 9/11 pearl harbor event, one that has catalyzed war against invisible terror has significant Zionist influence as the enemies of elite bigotry and choosiness have already declared war on life in general through immense racism and lack of compassion for multiculturalism. The countries that have been destroyed represent strategic interests that are contrary to Zionism and Jewish influence in America which has been built out of the great void as the food to feed on and this is the ability to strive as a community. Apartheid only works on one side of the fence, the other is rejected. The insane ideology of divide and conquer rots from the inside, as the delusion of being chosen as an excuse to plunder and destroy a living Palestinian community.

There is no way to set your heart straight without addressing all of these issues together and in a context that reveals the truth. It is not a conspiracy theory for a crime to have been committed. They happen all the time. What has grown out of this event has changed the face of America and aligned it with Zionism in America as a way of living, it has already begun. To live in fear and to build walls around a consecration and illusion that poor people are bad, and their out to get you. It is all a lie as food for the great void of sleeping while awake. Once you’re awake, you can begin to breathe and avoid the collective unconscious who feed on our freedom by abusing the social and evolutionary premise of peace on earth, and humanity to living beings with religious beliefs. You would expect this as much. How many wars must be fought to prove we can’t see the real enemy? How many children must die, how many women raped and tortured, to set your heart straight? Isn’t the big thing about wars the end? Why haven’t we declared that?

The truth has begun to reveal itself in the Arab world as we see countries are not really at war with America, they are in fact seeking a similar path as Americans, one of a civil society presently where factions are entwined into the fabric of economic feudalism fitted for the Zionist profile, such as the control of resources. Supply is now what ever you can steal, as prices have nothing to do with sustainability or regulation by those who are forced to pay for their rightful use. All these interests are acquired as in Iraq and Afghanistan as privileges arranged in the warring puppetry. We may see that the twists and turns in the spin have lost their zeal of foolery.

There was no great enemy only an event of unconscious arrival that has set forth a campaign of death especially to those who are opposed to Zionism and the oppression and ridicule of a culture that is particularly opposite the apartheid affairs stemming out of Israel. They want the basic human rights that have been exposed, they are not our enemies in the least. To begin to see all of the elements in a context of who benefits the most the confession war has long been a racket, but it has never been a way of life. There is no fate but what we make.

Chomsky: It’s not radical Islam that worries the US – it’s independence

By Noam Chomsky

It’s not radical Islam that worries the US – it’s independence

The nature of any regime it backs in the Arab world is secondary to control. Subjects are ignored until they break their chains.

‘The Arab world is on fire,” al-Jazeera reported last week, while throughout the region, western allies “are quickly losing their influence”. The shock wave was set in motion by the dramatic uprising in Tunisia that drove out a western-backed dictator, with reverberations especially in Egypt, where demonstrators overwhelmed a dictator’s brutal police.

Observers compared it to the toppling of Russian domains in 1989, but there are important differences. Crucially, no Mikhail Gorbachev exists among the great powers that support the Arab dictators. Rather, Washington and its allies keep to the well-established principle that democracy is acceptable only insofar as it conforms to strategic and economic objectives: fine in enemy territory (up to a point), but not in our backyard, please, unless properly tamed.

One 1989 comparison has some validity: Romania, where Washington maintained its support for Nicolae Ceausescu, the most vicious of the east European dictators, until the allegiance became untenable. Then Washington hailed his overthrow while the past was erased. That is a standard pattern: Ferdinand Marcos, Jean-Claude Duvalier, Chun Doo-hwan, Suharto and many other useful gangsters. It may be under way in the case of Hosni Mubarak, along with routine efforts to try to ensure a successor regime will not veer far from the approved path. The current hope appears to be Mubarak loyalist General Omar Suleiman, just named Egypt’s vice-president. Suleiman, the longtime head of the intelligence services, is despised by the rebelling public almost as much as the dictator himself.

A common refrain among pundits is that fear of radical Islam requires (reluctant) opposition to democracy on pragmatic grounds. While not without some merit, the formulation is misleading. The general threat has always been independence. The US and its allies have regularly supported radical Islamists, sometimes to prevent the threat of secular nationalism.

A familiar example is Saudi Arabia, the ideological centre of radical Islam (and of Islamic terror). Another in a long list is Zia ul-Haq, the most brutal of Pakistan’s dictators and President Reagan’s favorite, who carried out a programme of radical Islamisation (with Saudi funding).

“The traditional argument put forward in and out of the Arab world is that there is nothing wrong, everything is under control,” says Marwan Muasher, a former Jordanian official and now director of Middle East research for the Carnegie Endowment. “With this line of thinking, entrenched forces argue that opponents and outsiders calling for reform are exaggerating the conditions on the ground.”

Therefore the public can be dismissed. The doctrine traces far back and generalises worldwide, to US home territory as well. In the event of unrest, tactical shifts may be necessary, but always with an eye to reasserting control.

Are We Witnessing the Start of a Global Revolution?

By Gavin Marshall

Are We Witnessing the Start of a Global Revolution

In 1967, Martin Luther King, Jr., said in his famous speech “Beyond Vietnam”:

I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a “thing-oriented” society to a “person-oriented” society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.

An uprising in Tunisia led to the overthrow of the country’s 23-year long dictatorship of President Ben Ali. A new ‘transitional’ government was formed, but the protests continued demanding a totally new government without the relics of the previous tyranny. Protests in Algeria have continued for weeks, as rage mounts against rising food prices, corruption and state oppression. Protests in Jordan forced the King to call on the military to surround cities with tanks and set up checkpoints. Tens of thousands of protesters marched on Cairo demanding an end to the 30-year dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak. Thousands of activists, opposition leaders and students rallied in the capitol of Yemen against the corrupt dictatorship of President Saleh, in power since 1978. Saleh has been, with U.S. military assistance, attempting to crush a rebel movement in the north and a massive secessionist movement growing in the south, called the “Southern Movement.” Protests in Bolivia against rising food prices forced the populist government of Evo Morales to backtrack on plans to cut subsidies. Chile erupted in protests as demonstrators railed against rising fuel prices. Anti-government demonstrations broke out in Albania, resulting in the deaths of several protesters.

It seems as if the world is entering the beginnings of a new revolutionary era: the era of the ‘Global Political Awakening.’ While this ‘awakening’ is materializing in different regions, different nations and under different circumstances, it is being largely influenced by global conditions. The global domination by the major Western powers, principally the United States, over the past 65 years, and more broadly, centuries, is reaching a turning point. The people of the world are restless, resentful, and enraged. Change, it seems, is in the air. As the above quotes from Brzezinski indicate, this development on the world scene is the most radical and potentially dangerous threat to global power structures and empire. It is not a threat simply to the nations in which the protests arise or seek change, but perhaps to a greater degree, it is a threat to the imperial Western powers, international institutions, multinational corporations and banks that prop up, arm, support and profit from these oppressive regimes around the world. Thus, America and the West are faced with a monumental strategic challenge: what can be done to stem the Global Political Awakening? Zbigniew Brzezinski is one of the chief architects of American foreign policy, and arguably one of the intellectual pioneers of the system of globalization. Thus, his warnings about the ‘Global Political Awakening’ are directly in reference to its nature as a threat to the prevailing global hierarchy. As such, we must view the ‘Awakening’ as the greatest hope for humanity. Certainly, there will be mainy failures, problems, and regressions; but the ‘Awakening’ has begun, it is underway, and it cannot be so easily co-opted or controlled as many might assume.

The Adversary

By Jon Bourn
Editor of Jericho Rendezvous Blog

The Adversary

If you thought you were going to have a debate to solve your problems, you would want to have that debate with the dumbest most ignorant being on the planet, one that has no defense. This way you’d win right? That’s the game that is being played, and you my friend are the instrument.

Satan is so stupid that he can’t even count, he just eats and he needs you to help him.

After thousands of years his reign has become supreme, and he is finalizing his plans for the big show down. After the battle, Satan’s reign will be no where on Earth. We will be left wondering ‘What Happened’.

You may wonder, who is Satan? This will be easy, just replace the word Satan with the word money and you’ll be home free. Satan is born into the life of every baby as soon as they are born. Satan will be with you for your entire life, and if you do not obey Satan, you will literally die.

Satan has all your children as his whim. He has your mother. He has your father. He has everyone you know. This does not make Satan ok, it tells us that his reign is now, and that you are not only his slave, but it is you and I and everyone else that makes his day possible.

A world without Satan is not beyond our thinking or beyond our capability.

In fact, it is quite possible. However, to remove Satan and finally be saved as they coin it, Satan will have to go away, and those who are his puppets will not let go of Satan so easily. They would rather see everyone on Earth die first, then they will let Satan go because they know his power is a complete farce. As long as they can have more than others, your death will continue as scheduled. Some of the affects of his reign are obvious, and they are beginning to surface more readily in the news.

Living in the lost world as explained by Chris Hedges leaves the working people, and the majority of the population scratching their heads wondering why we even have a government in the first place. Academic discipline is transmuted into an anonymous propaganda as far as the eye can see. Chris highlights on the Real News Network how Satan digs in deep into the lifeblood of our globally adverse bound society.

Satan can’t get enough, he wants it all. He makes you think that if you obey his command, that things will only ‘get better’, and the life he has will keep you warm at night. Satan has a vast empire of conglomerations and option packages to keep you busy thinking he is not in charge. Step by step, he moves closer to his goal and that goal is to make you suffer ‘sucker’ because you were as ignorant as he is and those who love him the most are now getting paid off according to his plan. Those who represent Satan will by no means cut back on the promotion and branding of Satan, the master of the universe, that which heals all surface wounds, the true god of trust in America. On the contrary, we see what Satan has done not only to America, but to the world.

His power is relentless, it care for no life, only death, the key to his success. His mission is also vague but simple, its main ingredient is suffering in all forms of oppression, this is his food.

Earth is transformed into property, food is unnecessary, Satan has no use for it, and it will be phased out over time. Although, many who are possessed by Satan are not fully aware of this, those who are will make considerations for slavery to process their Satan blessed food substances. As Satan expands his empire, his presence will continue to creep into the psyches of those who have access to his power, they themselves will become his puppets. Our leaders are possessed by Satan and what he has to offer as a god, they act like they care about you while behind closed doors they laugh and giggle at how ignorant you have become. The facts be that they have learned how to caress Satan and keep him hard for their desires, and to send out chills of domination.

Satan must continually possess all that life has to offer. The art of caring is a crime, no one must be cared for unless Satan is fed first. If someone is starving to death, “kill them”, Satan replies. If you have no water, “Then die”, Satan blurts while sipping on his wine. These are just a handful of some the comparisons that exemplify our current demise. His greatest art is that of the enemy, because this is his name. It isn’t rocket science, all wars are started by Satan, and all your enemies are actually just people who truly have no link to Satan whatsoever, as Satan is a complete abstraction. His only power is in getting you to count him.

Imagine a world without him, it is worth the ride. Everything in the world would be free. Of course, everything in the world we have is already needed or people would not be making it right? People do not want to sit around the house all day watching TV, mostly, but seriously, what would everyone do? They would keep doing what they are doing now to some extent.

Corporations who elected people as labor would have to be nice, as everyone would be hiring, or if too many workers showed up, some could go elsewhere and be elected. Government would be built into the system, not a full-blown outside organization that provided no real benefit. It would all have to go and be rewired into citizenship. If we can spend just a little time thinking about it, you will immediately see that all the so-called impossibles become possible. It would immediately destroy the enemy and if the entire world agreed, Satan would die in one day, and bartering would begin.

Here are a few of the ideas that have kept me up at night and are only designed to get you thinking about living in a Satan free world. We start with the basics.

No one would be allowed to use Satan.

Satan’s aparthied would be banned for life.

All forms of Satan would be destroyed.

Anyone caught with Satan would be fined education.

All weapons would be destroyed.

Killing would for the better part stop, although fights would still need to be dealt with appropriately.

Knifes, and stabbing devices would be restricted by residence, and caretakers.

Countries would be forced to localize their freedoms.

The security apparatus would be diverted to all the paraphernalia that is materially made, and that of transportation to monitor safety, distribution flow, and availability. Instead of wiring ourselves for Satan, we wire him instead, and knowing his power flows as greed.

The drug wars would end as individual monitoring evolves.

Everyone would have to work, unless they are crippled, or over 50. At 50, everyone in the world would retire, or work as caregivers if they wish.

Everyone would be allowed to have a decent home, there are plenty of vacant ones that could be saved in America, but also understanding that the current environment is in need of much reform based on transportation excess, which is an unwise planetary alignment. People need people more than they need a home. The closer people are, the closer they will be also understanding that having space is a sacred practice. Those without homes will have them built for free.

Electricity will be free, although massive reform is needed to sustain life and prevent disease.

Food and water will be free to all. Obviously, people will not stop growing food, but their reasons for growing it will change, and be more in line with citizen rule.

Countries refusing to go free will be boycotted both in travel and goods.

They will have to be sealed off if necessary. However, their visiting citizens may remain and lose their citizenship’s in those countries.

All other countries will immediately set up bartering plans, although no other type of trade will be allowed forcing those countries which are too dependent on others to enforce their sustainability or relocate to a better Earth zone through free approval.

There would be no war, ever!

All of our perceived enemies would be in celebration and looking forward to peaceful times finally arriving.

To get those who hold out on weapons, free wide-screen TV’s can be handed out to anyone bringing them in for melting. (Just an idea)

Also to get people to relinquish their ultimate Satan’s, food caregivers would have to record data on all people, not to harass, but to track individuals until all forms of weapons have been confiscated. Manufacturing facilities would have to be destroyed worldwide. This would take much coordination, but its premise is no more difficult than let’s say, economics.

The truth however would be much more difficult, and it is Satan that is the problem. Over time, Satan’s power will gradually diminish and allow the world to continue to destroy his power, eventually destroying all traces.

This is like anything else, you have to work at it and promote it.

There would be no banks. These are just dens for Satan. Financial terrorism would end.

No credit cards. Everyone has credit.

No PR firms or advertising other than free.

There would be so much that was free, we might even begin to realize that all that we really want is each other, and we would begin to settle down, and have that Earth seance we’ve been waiting for.

I get excited about learning how to do things that I never had the opportunity to do and could get free lessons, for instance, Washington would have to go. So we get some truckers to wheel up some Cats to Washington, and we can give free lessons on removing garbage from the environment.

There would be no congress.

There would be no president.

There would be no house of representatives.

There would be no supreme court.

There would be only caregivers, and of course academic organizers.

Peace makers would be necessary.

There would be no prisons, only health facilities and healers.

There would be no way to kill another except for those chances that are woven into the daily routine which would be monitored by peace makers.

Peacemakers will answer to caregivers.

Caregivers will answer to academic organizers.

Academic organizers will answer to Peacemakers.

If this doesn’t work, try something similar.

Imagine a world that was truly focused on education and learning.

All churches would be turned into libraries and the promotion of truth and stories of Satan’s power from long ago.

No one in the world would have to suffer.

No one would have to be locked up, well, maybe, for a little while.

Religions would finally see the light and finally know who had been their enemy for so long.

Conflicts would be more easily solved, as more options would exist. Remember, Satan was stupid, so we’ll just use all the options he once had for ourselves.

Those in their castles will probably kill themselves and make our jobs much easier in removing their dead bodies.

You see, they won’t have any reason to be here.

This is how you kill Satan without lifting a finger.

All we have to do is set a date and tell the world. The constitution allows it. Then, the paperwork will be distributed to all organizations in preparation for the final date of transformation where all armies are automatically reverted to new authorization and to confiscate all traces of Satan on the entire planet, paper and minted anomalies to be burned and melted or stored for various manufacturing needs that correlate new commands.

Of course, everyone will immediately be notified of the free law.

The biggest change will be the Internet. Google will not be as needed, goodbye Google. We will only need social networks and academic writing hives where people can learn and find out about other learning venues where networks provides information about where to find free food, water, clothing, and support materials from other bee hives around the world. The Internet will open as a galaxy with stars drenched in the Milky Way.

I also envision based on the current environment that the world would abound in those of Shamanism and those who spend all their time caring for others. This world would break all bounds before it, and would meet god.

A signal would be sent out across the galaxy that Earth was finally free.

What’s the difference between this world and the one we live in now?

S a t a n.

The adversary.

Just think about how much he has screwed up your life and how much effort you have put into him while he pulls your strings.

All those who presently abuse the system would automatically receive their due, instantly.

Pharmaceutical companies would immediately have to prove everything beyond a shadow of any doubt and used only in emergencies to save a life from near death.

Preventing accidents would be a top job, above CEO, which would no longer exist other than citizen management.

Those that were heavily dependent on Satan would vanish in a cloud.

We might have to get used to going without for awhile, but Inter-Galactic would be free and we could spend our time learning and helping others find things to share.

Postal service would be principally Galactic, except for Trans-line rail service stop points.

There would be no taxes. You should already know this by now.

The Republicans have wanted to get rid of government for years.

The Democrats have wanted to get rid of the Republicans for years.

The idea of a free world is so good, I could write ideas forever.

Art and Music would EXPLODE. And, it would all be free.

It may seem odd, but biblical text defines Satan quite clearly in Revelation Chapter Six when referring to the Black horse, and a perceived scale of balance that he has inherited, and when he offers to trade his wears in verse Six. The only ingredient missing in this horror show is you.

Today, information takes on his presence, and soon he will want to mark you for that presence in the new Satan security apparatus. When this is completed, there will be no escape from him. While we are blinded by Google, he will move in for the kill, which is happening now. The paperwork trail is being set to his pulse. Eventually, all information will be his, and you will be a part of Satan forever, from birth, to death. In forcing engines to the hives, the beast is devoured.

Since Satan is stupid, he requires others to assimilate him, and these information handlers are there to collect for him so that he can grow.

Since all data is instantly dead, he is upset and wants to reach out so to speak. Satan will only grow more powerful until we all die, or a majority die and a few are left to forget him, as he is only in your mind.

All of our hate is his food, and we hate because he requests it.

I will leave the reader to ponder the possibilities and to ask a serious question to our hearts. Why haven’t we grown up?

Global BDS Against Israel Is Working

By Steve Lendman

Blobal BDS Against Israel is Working

In July 2005, a coalition of 171 Palestinian Civil Society organizations created the Global BDS movement for “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel Until it Complies with International Law and Universal Principles of Human Rights” for Occupied Palestinians, Israeli Arabs, and Palestinian diaspora refugees.

The Tel Aviv-based Reut Institute (RI) provides “real-time strategic decision-making” support in areas of national security and socioeconomic policy. Its new report titled “The Gaza Flotilla: The Collapse of Israel’s Political Firewall” suggests it’s working. It followed an earlier one on “creating a political firewall” against Israel’s “delegitimization challenge,” recommending sabotage and subterfuge against growing global forces it fears, not an equitable solution it rejects.

Focusing now on the Gaza Flotilla, it called it “the tip of the iceberg” attempt along with the BDS movement and Durban conference against racism to cause “tangible and significant damage to Israel.” Unmentioned was how expert Israel is in self-inflicting it by decades of occupation and crimes of war and against humanity.

Clearly they’re having an effect, RI saying opposition “momentum is gaining,” its aim “to delegitimize Israel in order to precipitate its implosion, inspired by the collapses of” apartheid South Africa and the Soviet Union. Calling the challenge global, systemic and political, RI blames two cooperating forces:

— the Iran/Hamas/Hezbollah “Resistance Network;” and

— the “Delegimization Network” based in cities like London, Brussels and San Francisco.

Their “constantly adapting” strategy requires Israel to adopt “a comprehensive systemic treatment” of the challenge it faces.

RI gave its version of the Gaza Flotilla interdiction, specifically against the Mavi Marmara mother ship, a “grave incident devlop(ing) during the takeover (when) Members of the Turkish IHH organization attacked Israeli forces with knives and metal bars, and in some cases with live fire. In the ensuing confrontation, nine Israeli soldiers were injured and nine Turkish activists killed.”

An earlier article discussed the truth, not RI’s revisionism, accessed through the following link:

http://sjlendman.blogspot.com/2010/05/brave-israeli-commandos-slaughter-aid.html

Israeli commandos (trained killers), planned and executed a premeditated attack in international waters against nonviolent, unarmed humanitarian activists, trying to deliver essential to life aid to besieged Gazans – to break Israel’s attempt to suffocate and starve them.

RI ignored the crime, focusing instead on world outrage, including anti-Israeli demonstrations in dozens of major cities, increased BDS efforts, international investigations, and the “stronger perception of cooperation between Israel’s Arab citizens and the Resistance and Delegitimization Networks.” Turkey also “exploited” the incident, “deepen(ing) the crisis with Israel.”

Israel followed with two inquiry commissions, an IDF one under reserve Major General Giora Eiland and another under retired Supreme Court Judge Jacob Turkel, both mandated to whitewash the crime, what RI won’t admit, instead saying:

“The mandates of both commissions reflect the mindset that mistakes surrounding the Gaza Flotilla were technical-operational or tactical-political in nature. The commissions are thus focused on the reasonableness of the actions taken by decision-makers on existing laws, regulations, and accepted practices.”

In addition, RI is conducting its own inquiry, “based on a methodology of systemic policy analysis and on its conceptual framework for confronting the delegitimization challenge….to contribute to understanding the strategic significance of the event and to suggest principles for preventing similar occurrences in the future.”

RI, of course, means preventing world outrage from boiling over, followed by actions harming Israeli interests, not its repeated crimes of war, against humanity, and high seas outrages. It worries instead about a new challenge because of two developments:

— Hamas’ “increased sophistication and efficiency and the Resistance Network’s ‘Logic of Implosion.’ ” It aims to precipitate Israel’s collapse from overstretch, benefitting from the unpopular occupation, promoting its delegitimization, and engaging in asymmetric tactics against Israeli civilians; and

— the Delegitimization Network’s evolution, aiming to portray Israeli as a pariah state, gaining support from “the Western liberal progressive elite (through) a variety of means aimed at blurring its true intentions.”

In recent years, the Resistance and Delegitimization Networks have created connections able to accelerate the following dynamics:

— “Promoting the one-state paradigm;” and

— Foiling Israel’s ability to contain or deny legitimacy to Hamas and Hezbollah.

Both lead “a systemic and systematic attack against Israel’s political and economic model, which has already had strategic consequences and may become existential if ignored or inadequately addressed.” In addition, Israel hasn’t developed an effective response to this challenge.

Hamas gained “agility” from 2006 electoral victory. Israeli “rigidity” followed – policies unable to change Hamas’ positions or precipitate its demise. “On the contrary, Hamas went from strength to strength” despite Israel’s imposed siege and Cast Lead. It continually adapts to new circumstances, “demonstrating a relatively clear strategic logic….while strengthening its domestic and international status” and ability to promote Israeli delegitimization.

The Gaza Flotilla and others planned are “the latest manifestation of a systemic and systematic attack” to undermine Israel’s legitimacy with considerable support from the BDS campaign, the “lawfare” war against senior Israeli officials, and effect of the Goldstone Commission.

The Flotilla was “a first-of-its-kind collaboration” between Hamas and the Resistance and Delegitimization Networks. Turkey’s involvement was the “difference that made the difference.” In addition, its organizers’ ability to gain Western progressive elite support turned Israel’s interdiction into a “global and politically explosive event.” RI called it a “clash of brands,” Israel tarnished and defeated in the eyes of world public opinion.

Indeed so but not enough. Still RI concludes that Israel’s firewall is eroding because it’s increasingly viewed as not “genuinely striving for peace, consistently and honestly committed to ending control over the Palestinians, or concerned with alleviating the humanitarian situation in Gaza.”

Israel doesn’t understand the gravity of the delegitimization threat, and hasn’t addressed it effectively. The campaign promoting it will continue, perhaps in new forms. RI urges confronting it strategically by “systematically collect(ing) intelligence (and) identif(ing) key (delegitimization) catalysts,” as well as adopting a:

“consistent and honest….commitment to end….control over the Palestinians, advance human rights (at least rhetorically), and promote greater integration and equality for its Arab citizens….”

“It takes a network to fight” one, says RI. Disrupting it is job one by training Israeli diplomats to work in delegitimization hubs, developing its own network, re-branding itself to promote a new image, and engaging “liberal progressive elite(s).” The objective – delegitimize, isolate and marginalize the delegitimizers and BDS movement.

Its earlier “delegitimize challenge” report recommended sabotage and subterfuge against growing forces it fears. Perhaps now it’s softening but not enough. It omitted the right of return, East Jerusalem as Palestine’s capital, the logic of a one-state solution, the renunciation of conflict, an admission of Israeli crimes of war and against humanity, accountability for those responsible, demilitarization as a show of good faith, legislation granting all Israeli citizens equal rights, an occupation end date, a full commitment to the rule of law, and restitution to compensate victims for decades of crimes and destructive harm for starters.

Short of fundamental change, Israeli delegitimization will prevail over half-hearted measures, more rhetorical than substantive the way they’ve always been for decades.

After the JFK Assassination–a True Coup d’état: Is the Current US Government Legitimate?

© unknown

August 3, 2010: By Dr. J. P. Hubert, MD FACS

After the JFK Assassination–a True Coup d’état: Is the Current US Government Legitimate?

It is now beyond reasonable doubt (BRD) that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by his own National Security State in what was a violent coup d’état that is, an overthrowing of the legitimate elected government of the United States by force through the use of the clandestine black-ops services of the CIA, elements of the Secret Service, the US military, the FBI and organized crime.[1]

Probability and Statistics:

Various scientific calculations have been done which indicate that there is less than 1 chance in a trillion that JFK’s death was the result of one man acting alone. There were at least 15 separate violations made by the US Secret Service in their handling of Presidential Security in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963.[2] These were unprecedented breaches in protocol. It would have been unusual if even one of these breaks in procedure had occurred let alone 15 during one Presidential visit. It defies credulity to think that such a scenario could have occurred on the basis of chance alone. Obviously the Secret Service “stood-down” so as to facilitate the conspirator’s killing teams in accomplishing the dastardly deed.[3] This means there was an extremely well orchestrated conspiracy to kill the President.

Perhaps even more astoundingly, during the 3 year period following the assassination of JFK and the murders of Lee Harvey Oswald and Officer J. D. Tippit, some 17 witnesses who were involved either directly or peripherally died, 72% of which were unnatural deaths, 52% being murders. The probability that even 15 of the 17 witnesses would be dead by 1967 is 100 quadrillion to 1 or 10(-17).[4]

The 35th President of the United States was murdered at essentially high noon on a bright autumn day in the middle of an American city while his security detail looked on and did nothing. The conspirators’ message was simple; “we’re in charge and there is nothing you can do about it.” Within the first hour after the Assassination, a pre-arranged “patsy” who had been placed in position at the Texas School Book Depository[5] was hunted down and apprehended long before any agency should have even suspected that he might have been involved. Lee Harvey Oswald–who as a result of the FIA[6] and the JFK Records Act[7] is now known to have been an American intelligence operative[8]–whether wittingly or by some last minute ruse played the part of the “fall-guy. During the entire time Oswald was in custody he denied killing President Kennedy and Officer J. D. Tippitt. There exists more and more evidence that Oswald was not involved in the killing of either JFK or Officer Tippitt.

Before being given the opportunity to disclose his role as an intelligence operative and what he might have known about the conspiracy to kill JFK[9], Lee Harvey Oswald was murdered on national TV in a room full of police and FBI agents whose only responsibility was to protect him. The night before his killing, the Dallas Police Department received 2 separate calls from unknown person(s) who reported that Oswald was to be murdered. Despite the warning, the Dallas Police made no attempt to prevent the killing of ostensibly the most important prisoner in US custody at the time. It defies all logic to believe that both JFK and Lee Harvey Oswald were killed by lone “deranged” gunmen.

Metaphysical Certainty:

In light of all of the cumulative JFK Assassination evidence now available, there exists metaphysical certainty that JFK was killed by a massive conspiracy with the power not only to murder the President but to successfully perpetrate a cover-up of monumental proportions which included securing massive medical fraud in the forensic evidence.[10] David Lifton, Douglas P. Horne and Dr. David W. Mantik and others have amply documented the details of how the medical fraud was accomplished.[11] The absolutely critical concept to understand is that no foreign or domestic entity would have had the access, power and requisite technological expertise to direct and accomplish the cover-up other than the American National Security State including US military physicians, 3 of which conducted the sham autopsy at Bethesda Naval Hospital.

Shadow Government in Control:

Unless and until the United States publicly discloses to the citizenry that its duly elected government was overthrown in 1963 and that since then the replacement/imposter government has been at least technically/legally speaking illegitimate[12] it will likely be impossible to reverse the increasingly rapid disintegration of America. The reality is that since the murder of President John F. Kennedy, there has been an extra-constitutional imposter “government” in place which prior to that time existed only in the shadows. It has been given many different names including the “war party” the MIMIC (media, intelligence, military, industrial complex) the secret government, the shadow government etc. That entity or “Regime” as a result of the JFK assassination appears to have profoundly altered the trajectory of the United States by placing the country on a constant war footing and building and sustaining an enormous foreign military base presence throughout the world which serves to project American power and enlarge the “empire.”

Beginning with the Lyndon B. Johnson administration and his reversal of John F. Kennedy’s NSAM # 263 (within 4 days of the JFK Assassination) calling for an end to all US presence in Vietnam by 1965[13], the course which the US took was that of increasing militarization and empire-building rather than the move toward peace, nuclear disarmament and ending of the cold war begun by JFK in the wake of the Cuban Missile Crisis.[14] As should be readily apparent, the result has been catastrophic for the United States and much of the world. Since the death of President Kennedy, the confidence of the American people in their government has been drastically reduced suggesting that at a subliminal level at least, Americans are aware that something extremely troubling has transpired. Moreover, the polarization of the major political parties which now exists can be traced to the Johnson administration’s prosecution of the Vietnam War and its terrible sequelae.

Hegelian Dialectic and the Manipulation of US Population:

A form of Hegelian dialectic[15] is currently being utilized successfully by the oligarchical “Regime” to control the masses through an artificial binary division of reality[16] into a politics of left vs.: right in combination with the unrelenting “bread and circus” entertainment extravaganza being foisted upon the people the latest incarnation of which is the absurd reality TV phenomenon. Most Americans are too busy attempting to survive to be able to sort through the maze of distractions. They seek refuge in meaningless electronic games, TV shows and sporting events as a way to escape from the dismal realities of their increasingly hopeless lives. For those with more time and the requisite interest in politics and current events, the shadow government provides a steady diet of right vs.: left diatribes carried out by various “experts”, talking heads and partisan political hacks many of whom function as US intelligence assets and “cut-outs” of various kinds.[17] Few Americans realize that this left/right dichotomy is totally artificial and contrived so as to limit the universe of acceptable public discourse.

Effect of Dumbing-Down of America:

Americans have been “dumbed-down” for over 50 years such that as an aggregate entity we are no longer capable of reason or for that matter intellectually sound individual thought. The completely artificial bi-polar division between right and left, liberal and conservative so dominates the public discourse that one would think that it totally exhausts the entire panoply of possibilities. This of course is the sine que non of the Hegelian dialectic which is served up on a nightly basis in the form of cable “news” TV shows which attempt to promote an endless debate over which political worldview is best while demonizing its opponent. The idea that on many topics the position of neither left nor right is credible–seems to have been totally missed by most Americans.

The Left/Right Divide and the Hiding of the Truth:

For example, we have become accustomed to there being only 2 possibilities in any given dispute over issues of public policy; the position of the liberal (progressive) left and that of the neoconservative right.[18] How many Americans understand that the neoliberal left and the neoconservative right are but artificial constructs in the Hegelian tradition, designed to allow for the appearance of debate all the while serving to disguise the truth that the resolution/synthesis has already been predetermined by the oligarchical Regime currently in charge? The Regime has as its greatest weapon the fact that no one wishes to believe the truth. For most of us it is simply too painful, unnerving and overwhelming. As many propagandists have indicated, “the bigger the lie the more readily it will be believed.” It is viscerally more comfortable to believe the lie that our government exists of, by and for the people rather than for an elite few who wield all the power and influence and for whom everyone else exists only to be utilized, abused and discarded. The mercenary (all volunteer) US military is a perfect example of the latter being made up almost exclusively of the offspring of impoverished Americans. This has been the case since the draft was ended in the 1970’s.

Theater of the Absurd:

Every four years the Regime treats us to another “theater of the absurd” in which US citizens are allowed to vote for one of 2 Presidential candidates, each of whom has been vetted by the oligarchy such that from its standpoint it matters little which one is elected. Irrespective of what campaign promises are made, once in power, the new Presidential administration hues to the wishes of the not so hidden “shadow government.” It should be intuitively obvious that no serious candidate for high office could rise to that level without demonstrating a willingness to regurgitate the “party line” of their respective political affiliation. As a result so-called third-party candidates are virtually never successful when running for the highest office in the land. The only real opportunity for rank and file US citizens to effect change in their government is to elect a Representative to the US House who is committed to representing their views. Unfortunately, the mega corporations now appear to enjoy monopoly control[19] due to the campaign finance laws which allow for virtually unlimited contributions to candidates.[20] The practical effect is to nullify the political power of the average citizen.

The Political Process is Broken:

The current political process then is broken. So what can we do? It is obvious that under the current set of circumstances, it makes no difference who is elected President and what major political party has the White House or Congress for that matter. To say this of course is considered heresy among the pundit/ruling class who earn their livings by pretending the system is legitimate. Unfortunately however, it is true and they are wrong. There are simply too many powerful individuals and multinational corporations who have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. Examples include the banking, health care, munitions and energy industries and their lobbies and individual pundits who make up the afternoon and evening chattering class on cable TV such as Chris Matthews, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Glen Beck, Ed Schultz, Keith Oberman and others.[21]

All of the above individuals to one degree or another represent special interest groups across the political spectrum. None are truly independent thinkers. They owe their jobs to their willingness to hue a particular political line as representatives of the media entity to which they belong. For example, O’Reilly, Hannity and Beck regurgitate the Neoconservative party line for Fox News with very little difference in their messages that is, there are differences in style but not substance.

Matthews (frequently repeats the claim that JFK and RFK were both killed by a lone deranged individual and he accepts/advertizes the poor work of scholarship that is Pozner’s “Case Closed” which is easily debunked), Oberman (who also accepts Pozner’s conclusions in “Case Closed”) and Schultz largely follow the left or liberal party line with minor differences in substance and major differences in style. All advance the liberal political views of MSNBC.

CNN on the other hand touts itself as simply reporting the facts without an obvious political orientation. However, the most powerful CNN pundit is Wolf Blitzer who is essentially an Israeli (Zionist) intelligence cut-out all the while presenting himself as a non-editorializing straight-up journalist. CNN is completely loyal to Zionist Israel and the Zionist Lobby. It never criticizes the genocidal policies of the Jewish state so in that sense at least it is completely biased in favor of the Israeli Jews and against the Palestinian Arabs. It has failed to report the Apartheid nature of modern Israel where the human rights granted to Jews are denied to Arabs.

The Power of the Israel Lobby:

Not one of the above cable entities or individual pundit’s dares to criticize the Israeli government or its immoral policies however. In fact no major network or cable entity is willing to risk doing so due to the power of the Zionist (Israel) Lobby. Only in foreign venues or on the internet among bloggers does one find a willingness to question Israel’s Apartheid/genocidal policies or the actions of the Zionist Lobby. There is a complete symbiosis between the corporate oligarchy in control of the US government and the Israeli neo-Fascist entity whose interests are protected by the extensive Zionist Lobby which has infiltrated virtually every branch of the US government, most major ‘think-tanks” and much of US academia. There exists only a very small Jewish minority in the United States who admit that the actions of the modern state of Israel are not only immoral but counterproductive to the ultimate survival of the Jewish state. Fortunately, in Israel, Jewish intellectuals and academics such as Ilan Pappe have begun to break the strangle hold that radical Zionist’s such as Benyamin Netanyahu, Igor Lieberman and others have held over successive Israeli governments.

Is there a Solution?

While the internet is still relatively unregulated, it behooves every US citizen to peacefully but actively spread the truth that in the wake of World War II/the creation of the CIA and the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the constitutional representative democratic republic which was brought into being in 1789 was replaced[22] with a not so secret shadow government which does the bidding of the elites and is antithetical to the needs, desires and goals of everyone else.

This effort should include organizing at the state and local levels. It should include electing to the US House of Representatives individuals who cannot be purchased by the multinational corporations and special interest groups. Finding such highly morally committed individuals will not be easy.

Finally, interested and committed individuals of like-mind should ban together for the purpose of pooling their various resources in order to better oppose the corporate media and their relentless attempts to “brain-wash” the public. Time is short for the survival of the American experiment. Please help Spread the word!

[1] The evidence is simply overwhelming. For those who are not yet familiar with some of the seminal works they include but are not limited to those in the selected reference section appended to this essay.
[2] Philosopher of Science Professor James H. Fetzer performed a calculation assuming that the probability that any one of them would be breached was only 10% which is more than likely too high. For even 12 to be breached at the same time yields a probability of 10(-12).
[3] Evidence now strongly suggests that there were likely at least “3” teams, one in the TSBD, one behind the fence at the grassy knoll, and one at the southwest end of the overpass in the storm drain. It is also possible that a 4th team was positioned at the southeast end of the overpass and another in the Dal-Tex building fairly close to ground level. The exact identity and number of the assassin’s is of course irrelevant to the issue of whether a conspiracy existed.

[5] Only someone in the US Secret Service would have been privy to the last minute change in the Dallas parade route which took the motorcade directly past the TSBD on Elm Street rather than down Main Street which had been the published route up until that point. The “last-minute” change was no doubt arranged to lessen the number of witnesses who would see the shooting and to be certain that Oswald was placed in the correct strategic position to be framed.

[9] Judyth Vary Baker who alleges a romantic affair with Lee Harvey Oswald in the summer of 1963 while the two worked under-cover at the Reilly Coffee Co. of New Orleans also claims that Oswald discovered the plot to kill Kennedy and had hoped to derail it but was unable to do so. Oswald apparently suspected that the result might be his own death as well as President Kennedy’s. Please see the extensive set of interviews on this site in which Judyth Baker is questioned in detail about Oswald.
[10] This included altering the wounds on the body of JFK prior to the “official” autopsy, substituting a different brain, falsifying the location of the alleged back wound in order to make the magic bullet hypothesis plausible, altering the skull X-rays and photographs of the head etc. See Douglas P. Horne, Inside the Assassination Records Review Board: The U.S. Government’s Final Attempt to Reconcile the Conflicting Medical Evidence in the Assassination of JFK, Volumes I-V. (2009).

[12] We have lost the legitimate succession of power from one Presidential Administration to the next by direct “propagation” due to the violent removal of President John F. Kennedy from office and the resultant complete turnabout in policy that Lyndon B. Johnson ordered and presided over.

[17] See for example Carl Bernstein. “The CIA and the Media.” Rolling Stone, October 20, 1977 for a discussion of the many media personages who are under the control of the national security state.
[18] The traditional or Paleoconservative “right” no longer exists for all practical purposes in that the neoconservatives have taken over the right wing of the US political spectrum. Neoconservatism has its roots in Trotsky and its branches in Nazism/Fascism. Newt Gingrich and former Vice President Dick Cheney are illustrative of the more radicalized Neoconservative right.
[19] The Health Insurance Lobby was the major beneficiary of the recently passed Health Reform Bill, the Banking Lobby virtually wrote the Banking Reform legislation.
[20] “Bundling” of funds by large corporate donors is a favorite tactic.
[21] One possible exception is the courageous Dylan Ratigan who has been willing to speak truthfully about the reality of the present circumstances at least with respect to the various lobbies which control the Congress. He has not to date challenged the Zionist Lobby which presumably would result forthwith in his dismissal from MSNBC.
[22] A true violent Coup d’etat. I specifically use this term recognizing that Peter Dale Scott disagrees with the use of that term when applied to the JFK Assassination.
