Mark Dankof Salutes Herman Otten: There Was a Time When Giants Walked the Earth

The Theological Credo of the Lutheran Reformation and Herman Otten of Christian News

      My longtime friend in the Confessionally Lutheran Faith and fellow journalist, Herman Otten of Christian News, has gone to be with the Lord Jesus Christ in eternity as of two days ago, April 24th, 2019.  Love Him or Hate Him, count me as one always in Herman’s corner in life when we first occasionally began working together over decades.  His place in Lutheran history and in the history of cutting edge Alternative Media in a pre-technological/pre-Internet era is absolutely guaranteed, regardless of what one would say about him now.  As for his considerable number of enemies, Otten loved publishing their original works of trash with complete glee and sarcastic wit.  Two items of hilarity for him in the current media would have been the tragi-comedic posts of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency entitled “A Chicago Space for LGBTQ Jews Becomes a ‘Queer Jeshiva for Everybody’,” and the Russia Today post on Sonalee Rashatwar entitled “‘Fat Sex Therapist’ Compares Fitness to Nazism, Dieting to Rape.” Herman would have noted editorially that Sonalee’s Seminar was delivered at St. Olaf’s “Lutheran” College in Minnesota.

     At the same time, he loved me on the radio and quietly followed my pathway there.  Herman likely missed my On-The-Air work this past week.  He’s listening now from Above. And making notes.  . . . He is probably also viewing the You Tube video of highlights of his life and his family’s ministry to him in his final days of this temporal existence, put together by his son Tim.

Herman Otten Loved This Meme of Israel’s “Christian” Bitch-in-Chief.

     The evidence of his personality and journalistic omnipresence is everywhere, ranging from the Lutheran Logia journal which gives him a qualified Thumbs-Up to liberal Matthew Becker of Valparaiso University and Day Star, which gives him an unqualified Thumbs-Down.  The latter was finally removed from the clergy roster of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod after a lengthy investigation which would never have occurred had the bureaucracy of that Synod not been hounded by the public exposure of Becker’s views over a very long period of time by–you guessed it–Herman Otten.

     An additional 1992 read which underscores his pivotal role as a watchdog of Missouri Synod machinations and Synodical Presidential elections over decades can be accessed as well, courtesy of a Chicago Tribune repost from Victor Volland of the St. Louis Post Dispatch. It is entitled, “Lutheran Journalist Plays Role of Spoiler.”  This sample is but a microcosm of his role as Editor of Christian News since 1962.  Another is the essay of Robert Benne, Director of the Center on Religion and Society at Roanoke College for Richard John Neuhaus’s First Things, entitled “The Trials of American Lutheranism.” While Dr. Benne’s ideological bias is revealed in his fine article, it does illustrate what James Adams, Religion Editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch wrote in his pivotal work, “Preus of Missouri and the Great Civil War” about the role of Herman Otten and Christian News in bringing down John Tietjen and a majority liberal faculty at Concordia Seminary in February of 1974.  Adams correctly observed that when historians would chronicle the ugliness of that Civil War over decades, the pivotal role of Otten in making it happen would be forever remembered.

    Another brief and poignant remembrance of the great man I have always thought of as the H. L. Mencken of Christian Journalism has just been posted on April 25th by Dr./Pastor Karl Fabriziius of Gottesdienst:  The Journal of Lutheran Liturgy.  It is entitled “Remembering Herman Otten.” It is yet another reminder of the place of Herman Otten and Christian News in the annals of American Lutheran history.

     As far as Richard John Neuhaus and First Things go, Christian News reported the truth:  Neuhaus had received $8.5 million dollars in contributions from Jewish Neo-Conservative sources for his long-time service to the State of Israel and Zionist Wars.  It wasn’t all about Hagee, Robertson, and Falwell.  The Synagogue of Satan had also skillfully covered its bets with a Lutheran turned Roman Catholic, who knew how to keep his printing press going and with great Mainstream Media reviews.

     Herman knew too much and was willing to speak and write about what he really thought.  People in power feared him, as he could not be compromised or purchased because of his faith and his commitment to a bedrock subscription to the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions. Because of this, he would be the target of relentless ad hominem attacks and demonization for decades. Each punch thrown his way was met by his shifty footwork and public journalistic counterpunch.  He instinctively understood that the world was both a cruel place to an honest man, and not the final stop, but only a fleeting transition for a brief moment to the blessed home in eternity awaiting the Christian believer.  What remains forever unfathomable is that he was simultaneously an effective parish pastor over the same period of temporal time, and had the absolute support of wife Grace, his kids, and his grandchildren in everything he was doing at the Lord’s behest.  Otten’s personal call to a ministry of Word and Sacrament proclaimed in his pulpit each Sunday was also his personal call to combat on the other 6 days of the week what he saw as an insidious threat to Biblical orthodoxy, culture, and morality via his pen and typewriter.  In his “spare” time, he participated for years in triathlons.

Otten to Dankof:  “Are You Keeping Your Bedside Devotions Active Every Night?”

     My conversations with the legendary Editor of Christian News over decades all began flooding back to me the day after his passing in New Haven.  I’ll relate the last one we had in 2015 that involved an incredibly serious matter involving Yours Truly with the ability to laugh with Herman about it later.

     Bottom line:  I almost had to legitimately shoot a man to death beating a woman in my apartment complex parking lot in San Antonio on Columbus Day that year.  My account of this may be accessed here.  I told my long-time friend about the details you may now read about.

     I was explaining to the good Pastor and Editor about my choice of firearm, the particular load in the magazine and chamber, and the Combat Handgunning technique of the Defensive Two-Tap to the upper torso (“Bang, Bang” best enacted with a semi-automatic and two lightning squeezes of the trigger, not jerking). I did so only because he was asking all the questions about the particulars. Herman then spoke of a theoretical headline only Otten could come up with instantly for Page One had I actually been forced to use the weapon: “Christian News Exclusive: Dankof’s Defensive Two-Tap and Walther’s ‘Proper Distinction Between Law and Gospel.'”

     For those who follow me now on Press TV/Iran, National Bugle Radio on RBN, Duke on Rense Radio Live, the American Free Press, Don Wassall’s Nationalist Times, Russia Insider, Russia Faith, Russia News Now, the Andrew Carrington Hitchcock Show in the UK, Al Ansaar Radio, CII International Radio of Johannesburg/Durban, Culture Wars, Dankof with Jonas E. Alexis of Veterans Today, BATR/SARTRE, and countless other places in the last two decades, history will reveal that I was originally elevated to my level of visibility in the last 19 years by two things.  One was my run for the U. S. Senate in 2000 in Delaware against William Roth and Tom Carper as the nominated delegate of the Constitution Party.  Even more importantly, my foray into Alternative Media for the Old Right was launched by my book review for Herman Otten and Christian News that made it into the 9-11 Commemorative Issue only days after September 11th, 2001.  The book reviewed was Gordon Thomas’s Gideon’s Spies:  The Secret History of the Mossad. Mr. Thomas himself contacted me from Ireland after seeing it.  That would have been impossible in a pre-Internet age.

Otten08

The Post 9-11 launch of Mark Dankof into Alt Right Action was because of Herman Otten of Christian News on September 17th, 2001.  The Fallout from that Book Review continues to this day.

     I had occasionally contributed to Christian News since the late 1980s, but the Thomas book review published after 9-11 changed the course of my life.  I could never have foreseen any of this, but on occasion Herman published a handful of items under my byline that bear special reiteration:  My memorial to the great Pastor Dale Crowley, Jr. was one of them.  My interview with Howard Phillips for Christian News was subsequently run by World Net Daily in its entirety.  My Page One interview with Dr. James Montgomery Boice is no longer online anywhere, but Christian News Encyclopedia will have it. My tribute to my academic advisor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Dr. Harold O. J. Brown, was another Otten editorial publish that also made it into wider evangelical circles that found him too tough on the Bad Guys in their midst otherwise.  I am informed that the TEDS faculty actually posted the Christian News original in the faculty lounge after the Brown death for a period of days.  I found this amusing:  The implication was that Dankof had written a terrific tribute to Joe Brown, but having Trinity students encountering both Dankof and Herman Otten in print with reference to the seminary was a potentially inflammatory risk.  For the record:  Harold O. J. Brown loved Christian News.  He read every issue.  I made sure he made it when he preceded Pastor Otten in the Kingdom of God.

     These lovable Protestant Evangelicals could not quite handle the Otten style of sardonic-to-the-point-of-inflicted anguish humor always brandished when absolutely warranted.  A classic example of this was the “prophetic vision” of Montanist Charismatic Guru Jamie Buckingham in the late 1980s.  It related to Buckingham’s direct unmediated message from the Holy Spirit to the former that Jamie would receive a Supernatural Healing and Deliverance to Claim and Proclaim from the sad case of cancer affliction he had encountered.  Charisma magazine and other Montanist outlets were playing it up big at the time and using it to sell other Charismatic Montanists on the idea of simply naming and claiming their physical deliverance from dreaded disases and suffering by clinging to Jamie’s received revelation. Only Herman Otten had the guts at the time to publish the dangers to Christians of accepting such transparent and heretical nonsense at face value from these self-anointed Evangelical Superstars.

The Flag of Israel-First Evangelicals, Capitol Hill, the ADL, the SPLC, Aryeh Tuchman of J-Hate, Joe Biden, and LGBTQ. Herman Otten was their Eternal Adversary.

     Jamie Buckingham sadly died 3 years later.  Christian News published the news story on his passing and obituary, alongside what Charisma had published some 36 months before on his Supernatural Healing of Deliverance to Claim and Proclaim message courtesy of the Holy Spirit’s person-to-person call that Buckingham asked everyone to believe actually transpired.  There was no editorial comment from Herman Otten.

Otten Answers the ADL Chief On The Line:  “Don’t Like Dankof’s Last Op-Ed?  His Dog is More Well Read Than You Are, You Jerk.”

     Message:  Only Christian News will remind people of the entire context of this sad story.  Christian News isn’t making light of a man’s illness, suffering, and death.  But false teaching and a heretical Montanism being passed off as Biblical doctrine and praxis has to be held accountable to the truth.  Buckingham was a heretic.  Everybody else is tap-dancing around this.  We Won’t.  We Never Will.

     Pastor Herman Otten lives today with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  That was and is his message to you.  I loved him in life.  I love him now.  I and all believers will yet encounter Herman and his manual typewriter, printing press, subscriber snail mail list, and Enemies Now in the Lake of Fire List in the Kingdom of God (Romans 10:9).

     Requiescat In Pace, Thou Who Hast Been Faithful Unto Death (Revelation 2:10).

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.

ZionistMarxistQueerflag

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.

     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.

     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.

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:

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.

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.

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.
