Dear Sir (s):

 

In regard to the question raised by W. James Antle in As Goode as it Gets:  The Constitution Party Has a Nominee, But Does it Have a Future? in the June 2012 The American Conservative, the answer is clearly yes.  But that future is consigned to the ash heap of history.

 

I was the Constitution Party candidate for the U. S. Senate race in Delaware against Thomas Carper and Bill Roth in 2000.  I believe in retrospect that the Party has no effective future, for reasons related both to the stacked deck against all 3rd parties in America, and the self-inflicted gunshot wounds suffered by the Constitution Party in particular. In regard to the stacked deck, prohibitive ballot access laws, lack of money, and lack of corporate media access have consigned all of the 3rd party movements in the United States to the political realm of Outer Darkness.  This is a grossly unjust reality.

 

In regard to the self-inflicted gunshot wounds of the Constitution Party itself, there has been an ongoing inability to recognize how effective national political coalitions are built over the long haul.  While the Party platform has historically been excellent on issues of foreign policy, war and peace, fiat money, fractional reserve banking, and the Fed, the reinforced perception of the Constitution Party has consistently been one of a fringe constituency tinged with Christian Reconstructionist ideology and mired exclusively in the abortion and school prayer controversies, to the exclusion of the proclamation of its total package of party platform positions.

 

There is one additional reason for the Party’s failure.  While the Constitution Party’s history suggests an America First-Pat Buchanan orientation on foreign policy, there have been ominous mixed messages sent in this critical area. This not only involves Alan Keyes’ past dalliance with the Party as cited by Mr. Antle, but Party founder and ex-Conservative Caucus Chairman Howard Phillips’ public promotion of pro-Zionist, neo-Conservative Jerome Corsi as a Constitution Party candidate for President in 2008; and Mr. Phillips’ recent involvement with pro-Zionist, neo-Conservative Kenneth R. Timmerman of Accuracy in Media (AIM)in a piece entitled, Tehran TV Loves Ron Paul.” This essay is available online, along with my observations and rebuttal.  The clear attack on America First conservatives who have appeared on Tehran’s Press TV to denounce a Zionist-run American foreign policy and the disproportionate influence of the Israeli Lobby in American politics generally, is obvious in the Timmerman AIM preemptive airstrike accomplished with Howard Phillips’ clear participation.  One surmises that Richard Mellon Scaife and the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) crowd approve.  Mr. Scaife, of course, has financed both AIM and PNAC. And the false statements made about me in the article, and the nature of my past relationship with Mr. Phillips and his Party have never been retracted or apologized for. 

 

By extension, the Timmerman/Phillips handiwork is clearly aimed not only at me, but at The American Conservative’s own Dr. Philip Giraldi, who has been a past guest on my radio show, and at Mark Glenn of The Ugly Truth, both of whom have joined me from time to time at Press TV/Iran.

 

The Constitution Party’s clear cooptation and compromise as evidenced by the Timmerman/Phillips AIM broadside, stands as a warning to the Tea Party and Ron Paul movements as well, even as the recent endorsement of Mitt Romney by Rand Paul is but the latest example of the art of political opportunism and mixed messages, one apparently mastered by Howard Phillips in his long-standing public relationship with the likes of Benjamin Netanyahu, Dr. Jerome Corsi (“Atomic Iran“), Kenneth R. Timmerman, and the Council for National Policy (CNP).

 

Beware.

I feel sorry for Tiger Woods. Why are we talking about this when we’re sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan?  You’ve got this history-changing event going on and we’re talking about Tiger’s private life and golf injuries.  He’s being used as a diversion and it just drives me crazy.”

Mel Gibson in the UK Daily Mail, 2010

And I, Daniel, fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king’s business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.”

The Biblical prophet, Daniel, chapter 8, verse 27

     The March 2nd Republican primary in Texas is now history.  The showcase event was the gubernatorial contest, where Globalist par excellence and Israeli lobby asset, Rick Perry, otherwise known as Mr. NAFTA Superhighway, defeated fellow central banking icon Kay Bailey Hutchison.  Populist, paleo insurgent Debra Medina received 18% of the ballots cast, cause for crowing among the remnant of the shrinking Paul-Buchanan wing of the GOP in the Lone Star State. 

     Two salient facts continue to underscore the ongoing ideological bankruptcy of the Republican Party in Texas, as well as nationally.  First, Medina’s vote totals remind the perceptive that 82% of “conservatives”  in the Texas gubernatorial race placed their imprimatur on two candidates symbolizing the Neo-Conservative hijacking of the electoral process in the GOP.  The Bush family, the Carlyle Group, and AIPAC are surely smiling in concert.

     But more importantly, the 18% who voted for Debra Medina, are in many cases largely clueless as to who and what is really behind the demise of their country, and their Party.

     This cluelessness apparently includes Mrs. Medina herself.  Like 2008 Presidential candidate, Ron Paul, Mrs. Medina attempted to finesse the 911 Truth Movement question posed to her by Glenn Beck on Fox News, and to avoid an aggressive attack upon the Israel First Neo-Conservatives who have hijacked the Republican Party.

     This is clearly a mistake, especially in light of the deliberate kidnapping of the Tea Party movement by the same suspects who have now moved into fourth gear in their promotion of an American/Israeli preemptive military attack on Iran.  Sarah Palin’s jingoistic keynote address at the recent Nashville conclave of deluded patriots underscores the gravity of the situation, both for an American conservative movement infiltrated by Tay-Sachs disease, and for the nation as a whole.

    My friend, Victor Thorn, described the sickening scene in Nashville for the March 1st American Free Press.  Before Palin’s Likudnik address, Thorn describes how the convention meal was blessed by Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president of the Christian-Zionist organization, Proclaiming Justice to the Nations.  Moore proclaimed, “If we do not defend the United States, who will defend Israel?  I would like to think that Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu is watching tonight.  And I want Bibi Netanyahu to know that the Tea Party nation is going to stand strong for Israel.”

     Someone like Debra Medina or Ron Paul needs to engage in an ideological frontal assault on this transparent, palpable garbage, with no punches pulled.  Where are these people when the country and the world are now on the edge of the precipice? 

     Try this one on for size.  What would have transpired in Nashville if someone with access to podium as a scheduled speaker had said something  on the order of the following?

     “Ladies and gentlemen, why is the domestic and foreign policy of the modern American conservative movement and the Republican party being defined by a view of Biblical prophecy unheard of until the 19th century, and largely promoted worldwide by the House of Rothschild’s distribution of the Scofield Reference Bible through its Oxford University Press?  Why are we in an alliance with a nation that has repeatedly committed crimes against the United States, including the Lavon Affair, Mossad involvement in the Kennedy assassination, the premeditated attack on the USS Liberty in June of 1967, the Pollard spy case, participation with Communist China in the theft of American nuclear secrets at Los Alamos through the PROMIS affair, and the more recent Ben Ami Kadish and AIPAC/Rosen/Weissman spy cases?

     “Why are we in an alliance as American conservatives with a domestic Jewish lobby which has militantly supported and financed the radical feminist, abortion, and homosexual lobbies most of us are sworn to oppose?

     “Why are we, as a pro-life movement, committed to policies of genocide against the Palestinians and the advocacy of the mass murder of Iranians, at the behest of an ‘ally’ which is the chief nuclear, biological, and chemical military power in the Middle East, and a non-signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) signed, however, by Iran?

     “And why, pray tell, are people here today in Nashville, talking about recovering American domestic liberty, in the context of ongoing obeisance to the chief players in a central banking cabal which has handed to us the direct federal income tax, the Federal Reserve Board, $13 trillion in national debt, and every globalist trade treaty that has destroyed American sovereignty and the manufacturing sector of our economy?   Is Bernard Madoff going to show up next year as a Tea Party keynote speaker?

     “And are Sarah Palin, Dick Armey, William Kristol, Mary Parker Lewis, Alan Keyes, Lou and Phillip Sheldon, Connie Hair, Judson Phillips, Mark Skoda, and Andrew Breitbart concerned that Israeli intelligence is promoting agitation-propaganda through the Rupert Murdoch News Corp chain designed to begin a Third World War?

     “Frankly, ladies and gentlemen, there is only one word to describe these activities on the part of those who claim to speak for America, its Constitution, and its people, but who have been bought off by what I have just described.  That word is treason.”

     Nashville clearly would have exploded.  It should have.  And the longer America First patriots delay the exposure of the Trojan Horse within the gates that should have transpired in Tennessee, the greater likelihood of the destruction of the Republic at the hands of the House of Rothschild, and the envelopment of the planet in the flames of a Third World War, courtesy of the Neo-Conservative dream of a “Clash of Civilizations.”

     One clear voice of reason in this madness is Philip Giraldi, former CIA station chief in Turkey, CIA counterterrorism official from 1976-1992, and Middle Eastern consultant for Pat Buchanan’s The American Conservative.  In his recent post for Antiwar.com entitled, “Many Voices Calling for War with Iran,” Palin’s Nashville Tea Party appearance is sadly chronicled.  And had anyone in Nashville read Giraldi’s critique of last December 14th’s Times of London story on the Iranian nuclear program, neatly summarized in Gareth Porter’s “US Intelligence Found Iran Nuke Document Was Forged, ” they would have found the key paragraphs which encapsulate what has happened to their movement, and their country.

     “The Rupert Murdoch chain has been used extensively to publish false intelligence from the Israelis and occasionally from the British government,” Giraldi said.

     “The Times is part of a Murdoch publishing empire that includes the Sunday Times, Fox News and the New York Post. All Murdoch-owned news media report on Iran with an aggressively pro-Israeli slant.”

     Fox News really digs Sarah Palin, Dick Armey, William Kristol, John Bolton, William Kristol and Company.

     Get the picture, Tea Party Turds?
