Mark Dankof on the New Zealand Massacre for Tasnim News Agency of Iran

dankofwarwithrussia

Mark Dankof:  “Who’s promoting War With Russia, War With Iran, and the MSM Spin on the New Zealand Tragedy?”

 

TasnimNewsAgency

Javad Arabshirazi of Tasnim News Agency:  Reporting the Mark Dankof Take on the Zionist-MSM Narrative on the New Zealand Massacre.

 

Tasnim: One gunman killed 49 people and wounded more than 20 during Friday prayers at two New Zealand mosques in the country’s worst ever mass shooting, which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern condemned as terrorism. What’s your take on this?

Dankof:  Clearly we have a case of mass murder on our hands.  The question is why, and how this event is being spun in context and meaning by a Zionist-controlled mass media in the West.

     Brenton Tarrant’s publicized profile is eerily reminiscent of Legends spun by mass media on Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged assassin of President John Kennedy; James Earl Ray, the alleged assassin of Martin Luther King; Sirhan Sirhan, the alleged assassin of Robert Kennedy; and Arthur Bremer, who shot Governor George Wallace of Alabama in May of 1972.  As time passed, and more research has been undertaken on these individuals and their alleged motives, the Cracks in the Mainstream Media Canvas are now all too apparent to reasonable, thinking people.  The information on Oswald, his background, his associations, his movements prior to November 22, 1963 chronicled by Anthony Summers in Not In Your Lifetime, and Michael Collins Piper in Final Judgment, are but several of a number of excellent books on the subject that absolutely perforate the Warren Commission account of the event.  The research of King attorney William Pepper on James Earl Ray and the murder of King in Memphis in 1968 expose the holes in the official narrative of that murder.  In the case of Sirhan Sirhan, your readers will want to examine Shane O’Sullivan’s The Real Manchurian Candidate and the Washington Post account of Tom Jackman on June 4, 2018 on the 50th anniversary of Robert Kennedy’s death at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.  Two salient additional facts must be mentioned here:  The official autopsy conducted by LA Coroner Thomas Noguchi indicated that the fatal shot was fired behind Kennedy’s right ear at point blank range.  Sirhan was in front of RFK during the entire shooting.  The second fact relates to the proof from videos, published years later, that CIA agents connected to the anti-Castro JMWAVE operation were in the Ambassador ballroom that night.  Why?

NWO01

     All of this brings us back to Mr. Tarrant.  Your Press TV Iran and The Times of Israel report that he spent time in Israel in 2016 arriving from Turkey.  That same year, he spent time in Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, Croatia, and Hungary.  His published manifestos before the shooting, his strange trip of 2016, and the comparisons of his Legend to those of Oswald, Ray, Sirhan, and Bremer make anyone give pause for thought.  I would pause even longer and wait for responsible research over time to take over in examining these coincidences and these convenient narratives currently being repeated as Truth Mantras by those whose record of truth and responsible investigative journalism is absolutely shoddy.  At the same time, I would caution against any rush to judgment on the part of those who immediately proclaim their knowledge of the real facts on Tarrant and the inside story on possible outside handlers, when there is so much work to do on the part of a handful of people committed to investigating this as Summers, Piper, Pepper, and O’Sullivan have in these other killings. I freely admit my bias in my suspicions based on ancient history.  In this regard, your readers will be interested in Laurent Guyenot’s article of almost 10,000 words in the Unz Review entitled, “Did Israel Kill the Kennedys?”  Also add the reminder from Mark Glenn of The Ugly Truth about the uncovering of the Mossad Spy Network operating in New Zealand in the context of the 2011 Christchurch Earthquake, and the IntelBrief post entitled, “The Transnational Network That Nobody is Talking About,” which links Tarrant to the right wing Azov Battalion in the Ukraine.  Has anyone noticed who and what was backing the Azov Battalion in the events leading to the coup d’etat in that country in February of 2014? Answer:  Victoria Nuland, Robert Kagan, Hillary Clinton, Israel, the EU, and the Zionist-oriented Western banks.  The point is this:  All of us need to dig much deeper into research and through time before accepting MSM spin on anything:  The Kennedy Assassination, 9-11, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Ukraine, Putin’s Russia, Iran, or New Zealand and the other massacres of recent years.  If Tarrant is the Neo-Nazi, White Supremacist nutcase portrayed in MSM on what happened to innocent Muslims in their mosque worshiping peacefully as usual in Christchurch, how and why was he so easily admitted to Israel and allowed to stay for days? These are the questions that will never be asked, much less answered by the nonsense being presently promoted in a Zionist-Controlled media on the subject. Mike Pompeo connects Zionists, LBTQ/LGBTI, and Ukraine on the official U. S Embassy Ukraine web site when he declared LGBTI Pride Month proudly for the Ukrainian people.  Let’s ask him about how Brenton Tarrant fits into a bigger picture with his travels to Tel Aviv, Kiev, and New Zealand.

     Look at this Zionist narrative in this tragic event.  Blame “white supremacism,” people who voted for Trump, and anyone concerned about the way in which multiculturalism and globalism have deliberately changed the demographics of the West along with a largely Jewish-inspired Culturally Marxist pollution of subverted cultures in the UK, Europe, and the United States previously impacted by some version of Christianity historically. Examine the role of Zionist organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in being used by these outlets to reinforce the already arrived at conclusions and solutions of Mainstream Media.  Paul Craig Roberts points out the $60 million dollars paid out in out-of-court settlements for libel and slander by the SPLC.

PatBuchananDankofSanAntonio

Pat Buchanan and Mark Dankof in Olden Days.

     This is not an accident.  Pat Buchanan demonstrates a few of the lies in his latest essay, “Who Spawned the Christchurch killer? ” Take a look at the real statistics on crime in the United States and globally, which contradict the Mainstream Media Predictable Spin on the New Zealand murders.  A different picture emerges.  And on the usual Mainstream Media lies about gun ownership and their accompanying globalist gun control narrative, see the article of my good friend, Erich Pratt of Gun Owners of America, on the falsehoods promoted in the wake of the New Zealand murders.  It is entitled, “What Media Won’t Tell You About the New Zealand Massacre.” Erich Pratt can hold his own with anyone, by the way.  See his debate with CNN’s Richard Quest, or his conversation with Guns and Gadgets.

Tasnim: According to reports, the Australian-born suspect has published a manifesto citing US President Donald Trump and Anders Breivik, the Norwegian white supremacist who murdered 77 people in Norway in 2011. He has dubbed the US president as “a symbol of renewed white identity”. What are your thoughts on this?

RussiaInsider20

Who Really Killed JFK?

Dankof:  This is all too convenient for me to accept at face value.  Keep in mind the Legend narratives mentioned in my first answer.  In the case of Breivik, it appears that his primary motivation for mass murder was a warped radical Zionist worldview.  His statements also fit in beautifully with Mainstream Media Narratives that people concerned about targeted demographic change aimed at the West, abortion, the LGBTQ movement, and a brand of globalism designed to destroy the culture, history, and institutions of sovereign individual nation states, are all potential Breiviks ready to go off like ticking time bombs armed with weaponry and irrational hatred of all Muslims and people of color.  Look at the Jerusalem Post article published at the time. In the case of Trump, the so-called “symbol of renewed white identity” is actually an ardent Zionist being urged on by Zionist Neo-Conservative advisors to militarily attack Iran in the interest of Greater Israel.  This war crime will involve the continued use of many American whites in the military to fight as surrogates for the Zionist cause, Netanyahu, the Israeli Lobby 5th Column operating in American government and media, and the Central Banks. Turning again to Brendon Tarrant, if he actually believes in his supposed manifesto and stated motive for mass murder in the New Zealand, he, like Breivik, Sirhan Sirhan, and Arthur Bremer, can be assigned status as an obvious psychiatric case par excellence or—be under suspicion as a programmed Manchurian Candidate.  I cannot say which.

Who Backs LGBTQ in Ukraine and the Azov Battalion in Kiev Simultaneously?  Ask Mike Pompeo!

Tasnim: Certain media outlets in west and Europe described the tragic incident as “shooting” not an act of terrorism. How do you see the role of western media in inciting a war between the west and Islam?

Dankof:  Western Mainstream Media is Zionist Media.  In the West, the governments of the United States, the UK, and Western Europe, are Zionist Occupied Governments (ZOG).  There is an obvious symbiotic relationship between the two.  Understood this way, a war between the West and Islam, the so-called War of Civilizations promoted by Zionist Neo Conservatives, will make both legitimate American and European nationalists opposed to the New World Order and their Islamic counterparts, the ultimate losers in the enterprise.  In other words, these seemingly diametrically opposed constituencies have a mutual interest in recognizing who is pitting them against one another as the hidden hand moving the chess pieces in an evil game largely misunderstood by the vast majority.

Mark Dankof on The Monica Witt USAF/OSI Spy Defection Case and Marzieh Hashemi of Press TV/Iran

CultureWarsNewNewWorldOrder

Gareth Porter at the New Horizons Conference in Iran with Marzieh Hashemi of Press TV in 2014. Hashemi and New Horizon NGO are now fingered in the Monica Witt Spy Case.

 

     One has to be oblivious to international and national news stories not to be aware of the breaking Monica Witt spy/treason/defection case involving this young lady Texan in the United States Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations (OSI).  News agencies are reporting en masse that “Individual A” in the 27 page Federal Grand Jury Indictment in United States District Court is thought to be Marzieh Hashemi, the Press TV News Anchor in Tehran.

     Hashemi is the former Melanie Franklin of New Orleans and still an American citizen.  When she was recently arrested in St. Louis at the airport and subsequently detained without charges in Washington, D. C., I and others wrote honest op-eds in defense of her work as a journalist.  Mine may be accessed on this very website.  It will remain there.

     Nonetheless, articles emerging in places like Clearance Jobs prove increasingly damning to both Witt and Hashemi.  The case for espionage and treason by two American citizens on behalf of a foreign power seems powerful.  I have read the entire 27 page Grand Jury indictment with an eye on the media reports.  None of it is good.  All of this will soon be discussed publicly on National Bugle Radio on the Republic Broadcasting Network with host Dr. Patrick Slattery.

     The New Horizon NGO of Iran is also under the official sanction of the U. S. Treasury Department as having been a willing front in this espionage/treason affair aimed at the United States.

     This is especially interesting to me, given the multiple invitations issued to me by this organization in years past for journalistic conferences in Tehran, including the time Monica Witt was in attendance in 2012.  But the Iranian government always managed to never issue me a visa, despite the fact that all of the official paperwork was submitted on time.

     I chalked this up to the fact that my status as a member of the NRA and a critic of  the Marxist-oriented Black Lives Matter, an organization Marzieh Hashemi has been working closely with, didn’t fit what the New Horizon Conference organizer, Reza Montazemi, was aiming for.  I also suspected my late Father’s past as an Air Force logistics advisor in Iran for the Shah’s Air Force in the last 5 years of the Pahlavi regime might have made the Iranian government suspicious of my own possible links to American intelligence.

     But 2014 confirmed that it went way beyond that, with the catastrophic public relations nightmare that befell Iran and the New Horizons NGO in the so-called Gareth Porter/BuzzFeed/New Horizons/Reza Montazami debacle.  Dr. E. Michael Jones of Culture Wars wrote the real inside story on that insidious mess in the December 2014 issue.  It was all stripped bare for all to behold in the cover story, entitled The New New World Order.  Yes, that’s Marzieh Hashemi, a.k.a. Melanie Franklin on the cover with Gareth Porter, whose own nefarious role over 4 years ago in Tehran is completely exposed in Culture Wars.

     Marzieh Hashemi took personal charge of making assurances to me that my visa wouldn’t fall through the cracks again in 2014, as it had repeatedly for a series of years in the past.  But it didn’t happen.  And she disappeared without a subsequent trace or apology to me.

     Nonetheless, I can understand how she was caught up in things that year that went well beyond her authority or ability to make right.

     [I can also understand why Reza Montazemi of New Horizon NGO stopped talking to me after a 2014 conference call he set up with Mark Glenn and Mark Dankof with Ken O’Keefe as intermediary with video and sound.  Montazemi later brought Mark Glenn to Tehran in an attempt at reconciliation.  E. Michael Jones later made it after the Culture Wars cover story he penned on the Gareth Porter/BuzzFeed/New Horizon/Reza Montazemi incident.  I never did.  I must confess what I told Montazemi to his Skype video face in that conversation, albeit true, did not comport well with being a Lutheran pastor (smile).  But he knew I was finished with him, and subsequently he with me.]

hashemi02

Free Speech Advocate or IRI intelligence operative in the Monica Witt Spy Case.  Is Marzieh “Individual A?”

     But in 2019, allegedly being involved as an American citizen as a knowing operational liaison between Islamic Republic of Iran intelligence and an American USAF/OSI technical sergeant from Texas bent on betraying her country and her oaths, Marzieh Hashemi has lost all credibility with me as a human being and an independent journalist and activist. Her dropping of all communication with me after the Gareth Porter/BuzzFeed/New Horizons/Reza Montazemi circus of late 2014 takes on new meaning with what continues emerging in the Monica Witt spy affair.

     I want to make it clear that I am proud of my past appearances on Press TV, and the things I and other honest American journalists have been allowed to bring forth globally there over the past decade on the New World Order, Zionism, and the hijacking of the American government by the Israeli government and its Lobby in the United States.  I do not apologize for any of it.  But much as I am sickened by the sellout of the people of the United States by who it is that controls the globalist American political elite enamored of fiat money; wars for Israel; false flag operations; and illegitimate aggression against Iran, Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Palestine, Libya, and Venezuela among others, I cannot endorse work in a journalistic context with people involved in espionage and treason against my own country and ironically enough, what was their own. If I could, I’d work for the Israelis.  Their pay scale is much better.  They have a good retirement plan also.

     Marzieh Hashemi has given the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Israeli intelligence, the Bolton/Pompeo/Elliott Abrams War Party, The Daily Beast, BuzzFeed, and the entire Neo-Conservative American MSM a propaganda field day.  She has betrayed Americans across the political spectrum who risked their lives and livelihoods to speak the truth to the people of the United States and the world on what was involved in 9-11 and in all the events that followed by appearing on Press TV. Her recent attempt to paint her detention in Washington as a case of white racism against all black folks and Muslims is straight out of the Black Lives Matter playbook.  It is also, sadly enough, now a transparent case of complete bullshit.

     That shall be the ultimate irony of this entire episode, with future innocent victims on both sides in the war that is coming an absolute guarantee.

Father Joseph Gleason of Russian Faith: Follow Him Out of Dodge If You Can

PolycarpofSmyrna

Polycarp of Smyrna and Christian Martyrdom: One of Mark Dankof’s icons on his studio/library wall.

 

     It goes without saying that Father Joseph Gleason of Russian Faith is making his mark in the world for the Kingdom of God in Jesus Christ.  His theological journey has finally taken him into the priesthood of the Russian Orthodox Church.  Geographically, the journey he and his family have embarked upon has taken them from the United States to Russia and a place called Rostov-The-Great.  His is a story worth following on an ongoing basis.  I sense his personal odyssey may prove larger in history than he or anyone else imagines right now.

  His most recent entry on the Russian Faith website is entitled, “Homosexuals Persecuting Christians in America:  Do You Feel The Walls Closing In?” This marvelous piece is 5,050 words long.  My succinct initial response to his labors before even reading the essay itself was–and is–a simple “Yes.”

     I do not come to this conclusion quickly or without study and engagement.  Since 9-11, I have set aside most of the rest of my life to attempt to bring the people of America to an awareness of how late the hour is, and the perilous state of both individual souls and a collective people that has turned its back on God in favor of an Empire built on narcissism, militarism, usury, and sodomy.

RussiaInsider08

     But the painful truth is that I have failed.  I have lost 17 years of my life in the process. I admitted as much some years ago in a well publicized essay entitled, “Why We’re Finished.”  Later, I found myself being pilloried by the Jerusalem Post and the international Jewish press for telling Press TV Iran the truth after the infamous Obergefell Supreme Court decision of 2015 about who played a pivotally disproportionate role in bringing this latest advance of Cultural Marxism to pass in the United States, as was the case in the Roe v Wade decision of January of 1973.  Joseph Biden said the same thing I did, only he hailed the development as a new dawning in America.  I didn’t.  Thus, I was in the crosshairs of the usual suspects.  Not one of my Lutheran colleagues in the United States came to my public defense.  I was on my own and I knew it, just as I have been for years in these circles for discussing 9-11, Empire foreign and military policy, the Kennedy Assassination, and the abortion and LGBTQ issues among many others.

     Nothing in the last 4 years has changed the equation.  I said as much in an essay entitled, “A ‘Communist’s’ Thoughts on the 4th of July,” appropriately retitled, “Russia is a Beacon of Promise for a Christian Future” for Russia Faith and Russian Insider readers.  The thousands of hits on those sites revealed I had struck a chord or a raw nerve depending on the perspective of the reader, which is why editors like Charles Bausman and Father Joseph Gleason have increasingly come under attack by MSM rags in the United States like The Daily Beast as agents of the Kremlin, which assaulted me well before it did these fine people.  I wore that as a badge of honor. I still do.

AncientofDays

The Ancient of Days (Daniel 7) on Mark Dankof’s radio studio/library wall.

     Which brings me back to Father Gleason’s latest post.  His conclusions about what the LGBTQ movement and the power elite’s goals are in both the United States and globally in regard to authentic Christianity and its adherents are no different than what Rod Dreher wrote in Time Magazine after the Obergefell decision, only sharper in focus in the implications.  This sharpening of focus leads the American Christian who prayerfully contemplates the reality of the homeland advances of the New World Order to examine his or her position very carefully as the Holy Spirit of God leads and directs.

     For the record, after examination over time, I humbly conclude personally that: 1) Father Joseph Gleason has made the right decision for himself and his family in moving to Russia; 2) Recent developments in that country and elsewhere make it clear to me that Orthodoxy is especially being used of God in the proclamation of the Gospel in an age of advancing heresy and apostasy–not declining Lutheranism, Catholicism, or a Protestant Evangelical movement overcome with worship of Zionism and increasing pop accommodation to cancerous American and European cultures headed for absolute shipwreck;  3) For young believers around the world including a couple I have recently read about in Brazil, and young American Christians feeling bewildered and embattled as they Feel the Walls Closing In, examine the Lord’s will very closely in regard to the beckoning of Father Gleason and his migrating minions to the place that the Triune God is restoring at this eschatological hour in history to counter the evil plans of a Western Globalist and Zionist movement bent on using moral and sexual perversion, mass media manipulation, consumerism, economic sanctions, and overt military aggression to achieve Satan’s final victory in this present realm;  4) The latest actions of the United States in the Ukraine in sewing discord in the Orthodox Church only underscore the depths to which the political leadership in America will go on behalf the objectives of the New World Order, along with the entire spectrum of moves being made by The Empire against Iran, Syria, Russia, and Venezuela;  5) When all of this is understood in discernment by the Christian believer in the West in terms of prophetic developments, those of us whose circumstances mandate remaining in our earthly homeland in exile must do so only in the clear understanding that the outcome is not merely an exilic experience of alienation and marginalization, but one which promises martyrdom itself.

RussiaInsider04

     My last public address to a Lutheran group discussed this.  I’m still not sure those in the lecture hall in upstate Wisconsin last year really had the foggiest notion of what I was trying to say in the Lord to them.  But Father Joseph Gleason knows of what I speak, and so do most of his readers at Russian Faith. There are a few Christian homeschoolers in Texas who certainly understand. For those in the United States and the West in a position to make choices for themselves and their families on the basis of their individual circumstances and Christian witness for the truth in history, follow him to higher ground.  Get out of Dodge while you can.

     I believe God has truly raised this man up at this most critical and final hour in world and redemptive history. Consider his witness and his words carefully. That is my best advice to you.  The clock is ticking to midnight.

The War on Free Speech Escalates: The American Arrest of Press TV Anchor Marzieh Hashemi

dankofwarwithrussia

What the hell? Let’s have a war with Russia, Iran, China, Venezuela, the Constitution of the United States, and any American who believes in the Bill of Rights, all at the same time!

     The assault on freedom of speech, freedom of association, and the right to oppose Israeli crimes and wars in the Middle East courtesy of American arms, money, and Zionist political support, has reached a new and ominously draconian level this week with the arrest and Federal detention of Press TV Iran’s anchor Marzieh Hashemi. Of the international news agencies who have covered the story since this past January 16th, Fox News would seem to have the most details presently known in this murky affair being conducted in the netherworld of the American National Security Police State.  Hashemi is an American citizen, and was attempting to fly from St. Louis to Denver to visit a brother terminally ill with cancer, when arrested at Lambert International Airport.  According to Fox, the FBI subsequently transported her to a presently unknown Federal detention facility in Washington.

hashemi01

An American citizen arrested and Federally detained without legal charges brought forth.  What was Marzieh Hashemi’s real offense?  Allowing free international TV discussion of Israel and 9-11, the Lavon Affair, the Lansky-Ben Gurion-Dimona link to the Kennedy Assassination, the USS Liberty attack, the Pollard spy case, the MEK assassinations of Iranian scientists, and the use of Al-Qaeda and ISIS against Assad?

     I will state again the summary of what I told Iran’s Press TV on this matter on open international TV on January 17th, on National Bugle Radio on the Republic Broadcasting Network with Dr. Patrick Slattery on the same date, and in subsequent conversation with Jonas E. Alexis of Veterans Today:

hashemi02

Locked Up Because She Spoke Up:  Take note, American Anti-Zionist, Anti-New World Order dissidents.

     First, the arrest of Marzieh Hashemi of Press TV and her subsequent detention is a violation of International Law and the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution.

     Second, the significance of the arrest and detention without charges is heightened by her status as an American citizen.  Every American should understand that what is directed against her now could and will be targeted at he or she tomorrow.

     Third, I am telling my responsible colleagues on the American Alt Right and Left that this arrest, in conjunction with the actions of the American National Security State against domestic activists in Alternative Media in working with Facebook, Google, Twitter, You Tube, and their “experts” at the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith (ADL) and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to hinder freedom of expression in matters related to the Zionist State of Israel, the domestic Jewish Lobby in the United States, and the marriage of the advocates of War for the American Empire with the Zionist Beast, represents a level of desperation and lawlessness not seen at any previous time in American history.

RussiaInsider23

Solzhenitsyn identifies the ultimate perpetrators of the Marzieh Hashemi arrest and Federal detention without charges in Washington.

     Fourth, this level of desperation and lawlessness indicates that the desire of the Zionist New World Order Beast to facilitate a war with Iran and possibly Putin’s Russia, now knows no boundaries.  In conjunction with the employment of the MEK to assassinate Iranian scientists on Iranian soil, the illegitimate cancellation of the P5+1 deal with Iran, the subsequent illegitimate imposition of economic sanctions on that country, and the employment of ISIS and Al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria against the Assad regime, the Marzieh Hashemi arrest and detention suggests 2019 will bring a level of escalation against the Tehran government by the Netanyahu government in Israel and Jewish Neo-Conservatives in the United States to the brink of actually achieving the war they have desired for so long.

hashemi03

Marzieh Hashemi of Press TV: Fair to all, tough as nails, articulate, of keen mind, dedicated to freedom of speech, and a threat to Washington, Tel Aviv, and Riyadh because of it.

     There are four wild cards that can and will bring down the New World OrderOne: An Iranian military capability and national will to fight consistently stronger than is understood in the United States, Israel, or the West generally.  Two:  A military intervention on behalf of Iran by Mr. Putin’s Russia.  Three:  Ongoing political and economic bankruptcy in the United States in a new phase of armed conflict which will exacerbate both. (For openers, David Stockman predicts a $40 trillion dollar national debt for the Washington Regime by the end of the decade.)  Four:  The Anti-Zionist, Anti-NWO American Right will move into a new phase of resistance, along with their counterparts on the American Antiwar Left, once the real shooting commences in the launching of a wider global conflict leading to World War III.  For real Christians in America not enamored of the American political elite, Zionism, or wars launched by both, I have recently warned of this in an essay on Christian Martyrdom and the American Empire.  The bumpy road for Marzieh Hashemi this week is about to be everyone’s bumpy road as the countdown to conflict continues apace.

     The clock is ticking to midnight.

The most evil gameplan in human history must be stopped.  Marzieh Hashemi and Colleagues understand this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christian Martyrdom and The American Empire: Mark Dankof On The New World Order

(Lutheran Pastor Mark Dankof was invited to a private session of Texas homeschoolers and their parents in a secluded home in San Antonio, to speak on a critically important subject deliberately avoided in American schools, including the Christian academies, and especially in IRS tax exempt 501(c)3 churches drenched in the doctrines of American and Israeli Exceptionalism. Readers of Russia Insider and Russian Faith may find the greatly edited version interesting in revealing serious truths about the present situation in the United States for the Christian believer.)

DankofBroadcastStudio

Have Show, Will Travel:  Press TV Iran, David Duke on Rense, National Bugle Radio on RBN, Andrew Carrington Hitchcock on EuroFolkRadio, CII International’s Global Dynamics, American Free Press Radio.

     It is a Saturday night here in the Alamo City, also known both in this country and outside it as Military Town USA.  It is noteworthy and more than understandable that I have been invited to speak on this topic in a private home, devoid of any advance or subsequent publicity, and without the sponsorship of any educational or church organization in this 7th largest city in the continental United States.  There is ample reason for this.  We unfortunately live in a climate of fear where tonight’s topic is concerned, a climate which produces only occasional furtive glances and whispers in rooms with darkened shades among those who sense as Christian believers that something is deeply wrong in our land, so wrong that our educational and religious leaders have not only maintained sustained silence on a healthy discussion of a topic that shall not go away, but in many cases have served as sycophantic cheerleaders for that which I believe to be evil.  For some, it is the desire to be popular in the community.  For others it is the danger of being libeled and slandered that is paramount.  For yet others, it is the fear of losing a tax exempt status courtesy of the IRS and the Federal Surveillance State which is well represented in this city. Many pastors and teachers sadly confuse Empire Deification and Emperor Worship with Biblical faith and American “patriotism,” which suggests that the core lessons and warnings of the Prophets Jeremiah, Amos, and Daniel, along with John’s writings on Patmos during the reign of Domitian (81-96 A. D. ), continue to be missed, along with the basic teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ about what really constitutes the Kingdom of God and who the Israel of God is really comprised of.

PatmosAegeanSunset

Exile on Patmos: An Aegean Sunset.

     I pray we shall not miss what I truly believe to be the teachings of the Holy Spirit of God conveyed by these Biblical writers, or what I believe is being conveyed about both Martyrdom and Empire.  So we quite rightly gather on a Saturday night on our own time to examine that which is not being examined elsewhere around San Antonio this evening, as the days and nights continue to unfold before the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

     My opening premise tonight is this:  The American Empire and its linkage to the Zionist State of Israel is intrinsically evil.  These entities are at the center of the drive to the New World Order, which in turn encompasses the ideology of world government; central banking; a controlled news media; the Culturally Marxist ideologies of radical feminism, abortion-on-demand, the LGBTQ agenda, societal acceptance of pornography, and an inherent opposition to authentic Christianity.  These entities seek to enslave the entire globe with this Satanic ideology, utilizing internal subversion, wartime economic sanctions, a global surveillance police state, and overt threats of military force against nation-states who do not acquiesce to the Beast.  Iran and a post-Communist Russia being revitalized by Russian Orthodox Christian spirituality and culture are but the latest targets. The symbols of the Christian Cross and the American Flag and Constitution shall be those chosen to sell lies to the American public and the American churches as to what this coming battle is about.  Make no mistake about it.  The New World Order is about neither.  It is the avowed enemy of both, no matter how many United States Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Navy recruitment ads appear during NFL games suggesting otherwise.

AncientofDays

The Ancient of Days (Daniel 7: 9, 13, and 22) on the Mark Dankof Library and Radio Studio Wall.

     I have not come to this conclusion lightly or without personal study or sacrifice.  I will simply invite you to peruse a recent article of mine, “ACommunist’s Thoughts on the 4th of July,” both because of a young man I discuss in that essay who is a microcosm of the deception of millions of Americans who believe they are following Christ in this arena when in fact I believe the opposite is true, and also because that essay contains many links to presentations and articles I have been preparing since 9-11, often times at considerable risk over these years.  Read these articles; listen to many TV and radio broadcasts since The War on Terror began 17 years ago.  My work will lead you to that of many others of equal or greater importance than I.  Begin this journey in earnest and you will encounter a world deliberately being withheld from you by your schools, your churches, most of your textbooks, as well as the news media most of you encounter when at all. I simply ask all of you to follow the dictum of Francis Bacon:  “Read, not to believe and take for granted, nor to contradict and confute, but to weigh and consider.” Bacon’s prescription, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God, is a portion of the Full Armor of God available to the believer in an unprecedented age of evil, deception, and mass communications technology designed to disguise Satan as an Angel of Light ( 2 Corinthians 11: 14) on both a national and global basis.

     After all, how many of us have really examined the historical “truths” in our textbooks and presented on television about the Federal Reserve Board, the World Wars, Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy Assassinations and that of Martin Luther King?  Have you ever heard of Deir Yassin?  The Lavon Affair?  The USS Liberty Attack?  The Pollard Spy Case?  The real story on 9-11?  Or these Gulf Wars which began in earnest with Desert Storm under George Herbert Walker Bush in January of 1991?  What is really the truth about why our government has taken such a bellicose stance on Iran and Russia in recent years? Why has our government supported ISIS and Al-Qaeda affiliates in destroying Syria?  Why are we supporting the genocidal war of Saudi Arabia in Yemen?  Who is really behind the Pussy Riot desecrations of the Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Moscow and why?

 My second premise is this:  The American Empire today is a 21st Century repristination of the empires God has judged throughout history.  If you believe your homework assignment as a homeschooler with parents curious to find out more about about a demonized Christian pastor and commentator named Mark Dankof ended with my own recommended articles, you’re wrong (smile).  I assign you to take a closer look at the conditions mentioned by the Prophet Amos during the reign of Jeroboam II, and his prophesies about the coming judgment of the Northern Kingdom of Israel at the hands of the Assyrians who would sack Samaria in 722 B. C.  I also assign you to read the relevant Old Testament texts about God’s impending judgment upon the Southern Kingdom of Judah (605 B. C. to 586 B. C.) and the reasons for it.  Lastly, take a look at the words of our Lord in the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21) as they pertain to the pronouncement of judgment upon Judah coming in the form of the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem by Titus and the Romans in A. D. 70, or the character of the evil Ancient Roman Empire which serves as the backdrop of the martyrdoms of Peter and Paul, and the exile of St. John to Patmos described in Revelation for his refusal to venerate Emperor Domitian as the virtual Incarnation of God on earth.

     Think about itIf my analysis is correct as the Spirit of God has guided me over many years, why drape the American Empire in the Christian Cross and the American Flag?  More importantly, why should Christian parents, pastors, and churches urge the participation of our kids in killing, wounding, and displacing millions of innocent people overseas who threaten neither our faith nor our real homeland security, but whose sole transgression is failing to acquiesce in a New World Order which identically threatens Christianity itself, both in the United States, in Putin’s Russia, and on a global basis generally?  I believe this is a repudiation of the words of the Lord Jesus Christ about the nature of the Kingdom of God, and a repudiation of the Just War Theory of St. Augustine which has guided Western Christian thought for centuries on the issue of when and why a believer in Jesus Christ may take up armaments.  Perhaps even more significantly, an Empire which has become largely Antichrist in its society and in its political leadership and apostate churches, cannot possibly invoke God’s name or His blessed protection in unjustifiable and aggressive conflict and expect righteous victory to come its way.  God Bless America in the current situation in this country presumably carries absolutely no weight with the Holy Trinity, a situation which as already mentioned mirrors the worst conditions of the aforementioned empires in Biblical history recommended for study and examination.

     I am no pacifist.  I believe in St. Augustine’s Just War Theory.  I come from a lifelong Air Force family.  I am no stranger to weaponry. I would fight for the legitimate defense of the United States against domestic criminals and foreign aggressors as I would for the innocent in our own community in San Antonio whose lives are being threatened and who are defenseless.  As a personal example 3 years ago, I almost had to shoot a criminal malefactor to death who was in the process of beating a woman to death in the parking lot of my apartment complex in San Antonio, even as a 3 month old infant lay injured underneath the couple’s car.  I truly thank God everyday that circumstances that prevented that justifiable development from having to happen did take place.  You may read about it briefly hereThe point is thisWhat the American Empire and the Zionist State of Israel it supports in the Middle East have been doing for years has no such similar Biblical, moral, and legal justification.  Take a close look at the grim reality of this truism in Palestine, Gaza, the Occupied Territories, and East Jerusalem, along with Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Southern Lebanon, or Ukraine.  The coming war with Iran and Putin’s Russia will bring this evil New World Order agenda to an apocalyptic crescendo.  Christians should refuse to take up arms on behalf of this, and protect the rights of their children and church members to tell Caesar he shall not have that which belongs to Christ and Christ alone. Period. This is not Augustine’s Just War Theory operating in what we are examining here.  It is mass murder, past, present, and undoubtedly future, largely for an entity that claims a divine right to Palestine and surrounding territories, even though it rejects the Gospel of Christ in favor of a doctrine of racial supremacy, world government, a kingdom of this world not the next, and a kingdom whose instruments are not love and brotherhood but armaments of mass destruction and mass surveillance in the interest of theft by terror and death. It bears no resemblance to the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, but to Barabbas and the Jewish mob clamoring for his release at the expense of He who knew no sin. This Satanic counterfeit of the Israel of God shall even set the stage for the appearance of Antichrist, and his usurpation of the temple of God to show himself as God (2 Thessalonians 2). St. Paul warns us in this very chapter of Satanic power, signs, and wonders, and God’s sending of a strong delusion upon those who have already rejected His Son for His Son’s very antithesis.  This delusion will lead to the destruction of those who believe the lie.

     Let me add one sobering thought for your long term consideration tonight. My final premise is this:  It may not simply be enough to refuse to kill innocents on behalf of the American Empire and its Emperors.  The Lord may require that we be willing to die a death of Martyrdom Witness by the hand of this Empire at a time of His choosing.  Stephen, Peter, and Paul come to mind instantly as New Testament examples.  Revelation 2: 8-11 and The Cry of the Martyrs found in the 5th Seal of John’s Apocalypse in Revelation 6: 9-11 are verses which accompany these Saints of God in constant reverberations within the heart, the mind, and the soul of those in closest union with Christ.

PolycarpSmyrna02

St. Polycarp of Smyrna, rejecting Emperor Worship and the Synagogue of Satan (Revelation 2:9) for Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ Only, Forever and Ever.

     And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.  . . .

     And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

     And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

     And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

     I believe these cited verses, among others, provide us with a New Testament doctrine of witness and faithfulness unto death.  It is not an accident in redemptive history that the first example this post-apostolic faithfulness unto death proves to be St. Polycarp of Smyrna.

     Polycarp (A. D. 69-155) is one of the 3 chief Apostolic Fathers, along with Clement of Rome and Ignatius of Antioch.  His name translates into Greek as “much fruit” (Πολύκαρπος).  The two chief works which enable us to have some access to his life and death in Christ are The Martyrdom of Polycarp (Μαρτύριον του Αγίου Πολυκάρπουand his Letter to the Philippians (Επιστολή προς Φιλιππησίους). You are assigned each of these for reading and contemplation, as your parents work these into your homework schedules.  Of the many things that are exciting about homeschooling, the experience of an entire family learning together is chief among them.  So shall it be here also.

Logos02

The Lord Jesus Christ to the Church of Smyrna and The Israel of God Through the Ages:  “Be Thou Faithful Unto Death, and I Will Give Thee the Crown of Life.”

     Irenaeus indicates that he heard Polycarp in his youth.  Tertullian informs us that Polycarp had been a disciple of John the Apostle, our author of the Gospel of John, 1st-2nd-3rd John, and the Revelation on Patmos.  Jerome later conveys to us the fact that John had ordained Polycarp the Bishop of Smyrna.  Keep in mind that the Church of Smyrna in Revelation 2 was the economically poor but spiritually rich church, the church in Asia Minor warned specifically about the Synagogue of Satan, and the church instructed to be faithful unto death against the backdrop of an evil Roman Empire.  It is the prototype of the remnant Israel of God at the end of history, as the people of Christ watch spiritual darkness and apocalyptic political developments engulf the planet while clinging to the Word of God, the Holy Sacrament, and the testimony of Prophets, Apostles, and Saints.

     Lutheran scholar turned Orthodox, Jaroslav Pelikan notes this backdrop of the execution of Polycarp in Credo:  Historical and Theological Guide to Creeds and Confessions of Faith in the Christian Tradition, page 223:

     When, in the first postbiblical account of a Christian martyrdom, The Martyrdom of Polycarp, the Roman proconsul, Statius Quadratus, the political and spiritual descendant of Pontius Pilate and the representative of Emperor Antoninus Pius, orders the aged Polycarp, “Swear by the fortune of Caesar!” Polycarp instead confesses “with boldness, ‘I am a Christian.  And if you wish to learn what the doctrines of Christianity are, appoint me a day, and you shall hear them.'”  And so he went to his death.  The twentieth century, which saw the rise of both Nazi and Communist totalitarian regimes that were inimical to Christianity, also therefore produced several such confessions that were political acts in this special sense. [see Barmen Declaration of 1934]

     And so we come to the end of the hour with the question of the day being this:  While virtually everyone here will accept at face value the evil character of Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon, the Ancient Roman Empire, or the Hitler and Stalin regimes, is the American Empire somehow a beacon of light and hope to the world as our educational system, pastors, and churches often insist that it is, or is the verdict of the Activist Post more devastatingly accurate over 7 years ago in its essay, “10 Reasons America Will Be Judged as the Most Brutal Empire in History?”  Put another way, will our young people be doing the will of the Lord in serving in The Empire’s War on Terror, or is the way of Polycarp, the way of Peter and Paul, and the exilic path of John, Solzhenitsyn, Sununu and Assange, His will for the lives of those who gathered here tonight if the situation so requires?

American Christians:  Shall They Support the New World Order’s War on Putin’s Russian Orthodox Christian Renaissance?

     For the Christian living in the United States, that question will not go away.  I hope each person here tonight will avail himself or herself of the links to articles and broadcasts over time necessary to examine the question at hand, and to search the Scriptures prayerfully and diligently.  I am thankful that a remnant of people in this city have sought to examine the evidence for themselves and to allow the Lord to lead them in the truth over time as He wills.  And in these dark days and nights, with the eschatological time clock of God ticking to the end of this present cosmos and the beginning of eternity, let us think tonight not only of our own families and friends, but those around the world already mentioned as among those most presently persecuted and endangered.  The Lord’s admonition of Revelation 2:11 echoes once again in our hearts, our minds, and our souls:  “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. . . .

     And so we close tonight with that prayer.  May we have ears to hear.  May we hear what the Spirit says to the churches.  May we overcome.  May we be spared the second death in the Lake of Fire.  For the end fast approaches.  Amen.
