A Prophet of the Old Right on MLK Day: ‘Free at Last’ in the American Warfare-Welfare-Surveillance-and Perversion State


Mark Dankof’s presentation at the American Free Press conference in Austin, Texas on Nov 9th, 2013 wasn’t entitled, “Free at Last.”

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.

—Jesus Christ to the Church of Smyrna in Revelation 2:8-10

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

—Revelation 13: 16-18

And as he sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

—Jesus Christ in Matthew 24:3-5

     There was an ice storm accompanied by howling winds in San Antonio late tonight on this January 15th, 2018 that will continue into the wee hours of the pre-dawn morning.  I wasn’t sleeping but thinking, as I stared out the bedroom window at the dreary darkness enshrouding the Alamo City, known in many circles as Military Town USA because of the overwhelming presence of the United States military and intelligence establishments here, including the NSA’s Global Internet Surveillance Headquarters.

     In my Night Thoughts, my mind was spinning with a kaleidoscope of Articles and Broadcasts Past, as Charles Dickens would put it.  There were bits and pieces of the last 16 years, ranging from thoughts of Pearl Harbor and FDR, to the Kennedy Assassination9-11, Marquis McCants, the American Sniper , and the interview on the Closing of the Zionist Mind  I granted to Jonas E. Alexis almost two years ago.  Painfully, I remember colleagues and friends who have departed this life while fighting the good fight with and for me, especially Pastor Dale Crowley, who was truly faithful to Christ unto Death.  Much farther back, there were two mentors I never knew, who collaborated on the creation of Human Events years before the latter’s corporate takeover by Regnery/Phillips and then Salem Communications, with the usual subsequent implications for Corporatist, Neo-Conservative and Zionist hijacking of a once great newspaper.  You’d never know it now, but Human Events was originally dedicated to what the American Right was when it was high on principal, ideas, civility, and free domestic and international discourse and exchange.  Frank Chodorov and Felix Morley are virtual unknowns to the denizens of Fox News and a statist Republican Party.  What a shame.  How revealing. True Prophets tend to be forgotten, ignored, rejected, and reviled fellows.  Just ask Jeremiah, or Christ Himself. I’m proud I haven’t forgotten any of them, or their legacy. I can still read by the grace of God.


Hess to Dankof in an Inside the Beltway Pub:  “Kid, it’s all a crock of shit in the end.”

       And then there’s my old friend, the legendary Karl Hess.  The last time I saw him was in a pub in Washington, D. C. where we agreed to meet once last time for an assessment of life’s journeys and some of the stories only Hess could tell.  Who else can one name who at various stages of The Quest worked with Barry Goldwater, Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), Tricky Dick and Jerry Ford, and the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), before moving on in time to the Black Panthers and Students for a Democratic Society (SDS)?

     I told him that I loved Dear, America (1975). Our only major parting of the ways, among good friends who had frank exchanges, is that his related experiences moved him to a position of resolute atheism.  Mine over many years moved me closer to Jesus Christ.  I hope the Lord had a good talking with Karl before he was called home.  As for the rest of the book and the Hess conclusions, I can’t argue with most of the rest of it.

     When I think of him now, years after his passing, I’m reminded of my favorite Tom T. Hall ballad, “Old Dogs and Children and Watermelon Wine.”  He told me on that last memorable encounter that he had discovered in the end that “It was all a crock of shit.  And most of the people in this business are swimming in it.”

     In my Night Thoughts, I imagine Hess and me in a San Antonio bar earlier this evening with some German beer after following and observing the MLK Marchers here.  I suspect I know what he would have said.  “Kid, I was on a search my entire life, like most of these folks.  But I don’t think any of them could find their Butts with Both Hands. You and I know what will lead them down the sinkhole since you’ve read Chodorov.  I can still recite him from memory.  ‘The State is the great predatory enemy of the human race; The State is, in its very being, the organization and regularization of predation, exploitation, and robbery.  The State is a profoundly anti-social institution, the canker in the heart of any attempt at peaceful cooperation by free individuals in society.’  Let’s have one more for the road and get the hell out of here, after we toast the end of The Empire and every useful idiot and sheep herder in it.

     Then my mind was deluged with a kaleidoscope of recent productions, ranging from two recent efforts by Dr. Philip Giraldi of the Council for the National Interest, entitled, “Expect Even Less Freedom of Internet in 2018” and “What’s Wrong with Liberal Jews?” to the latest from Father Stephen Sizer, the latest from Jonas E. Alexis on “False Flags, Covert Operations, and American Exceptionalism,” and even my own recent chat about the obvious with Tasnim News Agency on New US-Israeli Scheme to Destabilize Iran with Sanctions and Black Operations which is now reposted amazingly enough, by the Times of Islamabad. This last offering has been buried by American search engines like Google as near as I can discern, but the Russian Yandex search engine reminds the world that such a character as I continues to barely exist, armed only with a Word Processor and my Biblical, Theological, and Prayer Volumes in my darkened bedroom during another ice storm and bout with winter winds in South Texas. I am strangely reassured somehow, that both Google and Yandex agree on the merits of “The Church of Smyrna Speaks to the Confessing Church of Christ in this Darkening Hour.”


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.

     Now back to my brief nocturnal observations on Martin Luther King Day in San Antonio on this January 15th which has now become the beginning of January 16th in the darkness and cold.  Like other major cities in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave, the theme of Free at Last, I’m Free at Last was the recited mantra of the collective, both in the Alamo City and around the country, along with an enthusiastic and sycophantic Corporate Media.


Free at Last? Or so The True Believers think in San Antonio on January 15th, 2018 during the MLK March.

     As an admitted Dinosaur and aging Prophet of the Old Right well into the 21st century, I really wonder how many of these largely well-meaning folks really believe this sort of thing.  Are they, or most of the rest of us Free at Last?  Or are we all in individual and collective bondage to the demonic American Warfare-Welfare-Surveillance-Perversion State?


Is America “Free at Last” as it raises a New Flag as United We Stand?

     Clearly, my own ideas are a part of the public record over time.  I reflect tonight on such dated but relevant Night Thoughts of the past like “Obama and the Jews:  Social Engineering in the American Military and the Coming War with Iran,” what I said about the Ceremony of the 4 Chaplains on February 11th, 2001 here in San Antonio, and my conclusions reached in America the Beautiful, Why We’re Finished. I reflect on the things David Stockman just penned on the economic serfdom awaiting so many of the folks who think they’re Free at Last, or Charles Bausman’s reflections on why certain taboos need to be dropped and replaced with open conversation and examination of the present and the past, as well as the future.   Maybe some of the best of the MLK Marchers in San Antonio who are decent folks and able to converse with the ideas of others in a living room or a quiet table in an out-of-the-way restaurant or cafe might be interested in what Dr. Thomas DiLorenzo has told us about the mythology of The Empire on Saint Abraham Lincoln and the American War Between the States.  The encyclopedic works of Ray McGovern may well suggest to the MLK celebrants that they aren’t Free at Last in any sense of the repeatedly chanted mantra, but are in fact the coming cannon fodder of The Empire in expanding American military operations for the America’s Ashkenazic Reich in Central Banking, the Israeli Lobby, the Frankfurt Institute’s Institute of Social Research, George Soros, and the armaments manufacturers. Sheldon L. Richman’s “The Old Right Was Right” for the Mises Institute deserves being added to a good reading list at night when average Americans of every skin tone and ideological stripe have the deepening and ominous sense that something is desperately wrong and worsening.  And I did write my aforementioned treatise on Marquis McCants as a special warning of a friend to dispossessed Americans of every color and creed with all of these Night Thoughts over the passing years in mind.  I guess they missed it at the time here in San Antonio, where the funeral and the burial of a fine young man needlessly sacrificed were held.  I hold it out again to the best of the folks here who participated in the MLK March as one who admits that I generally march to the tune of a different drummer and have for most of my life. I dance neither with the Central State and The Empire, or those who beat the drums for both in Hollywood and on MSM. I wish these participants could sit down with Frank Chodorov and Karl Hess, and the best we can still offer them still in the fight while there is but a brief moment in time.  But I suspect it is too late for the Masses.

     As for the Masses and the tragedy of assassinations, coup d’etats, and wars past and present, the folks joyously posing for the MLK Marches on television around the country being eagerly covered by a fawning MSM may want to ask the deeper question of why CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Newsweek and other Corporate Puppets haven’t asked the questions or presented the disturbing data on the murder of their Messiah posted by Craig McKee in Truth and Shadows and re-posted by Lew Rockwell today.  Spending some time researching taboo topics listed at the National Security Archive at George Washington University and elsewhere may also produce a reassessment of the commitment of these Marchers to a leviathan government and its far reaching tentacles.

     And then there is Biblical eschatology. Brother Nathanael attempts to reissue his latest video warning to all who will hear and discern.  He and I have the same perspective on this subject and how the clock is ticking in these final days.  Warnings on deception, wolves, demonic forces, and the impending unveiling of Antichrist provide the wisdom of the Apostle John in his Apocalypse on Patmos to people both in Ancient Rome and throughout history who embrace Empire Worship, even if they don’t know it yet.  To the folks of the MLK March in San Antonio who truly believe they are Free at Last, I beg them to hear what I believe are the Lord’s voices calling from the desolate wilderness of an American national scene heading at breakneck speed for the Abyss. Being truly Free at Last comes only when Christ returns, Antichrist and his followers are consigned to the Lake of Fire, and the Lord’s people are with him in the New Jerusalem and the New Earth forever and ever.


We’re Free At Last!  We’re Defending Their Freedoms! We Have the Responsibility to Protect (R2P)! Thank You for Serving!

     The Clock is Ticking My Fellow American Masses, whatever Cardboard Saviors or mythological lies one happens to cling to as the freezing rain and the howling winds commence during an ugly nightfall in South Texas harshly announcing the end of Martin Luther King Day. in the Alamo City. As Karl Hess would tell you in a pub or in Dear, America, believing that you’re Free at Last is the sort of thing generally found on the floor of Mr. Trump’s horse stable.  It’s piled in copious amounts on top of We’re Defending Their FreedomsWe Have the Responsibility to Protect (R2P), and Thank You for Serving!

Mark Dankof Interview with the Habilian Association: On Israel, the MEK, and Iran

Mark Dankof: "The Mujahedeen-e-Khalq: The Intersection of the CIA-Mossad-Saudi Nexus Against Iran"

The Habilian Association of Iran talks to American conservative and Taft-Buchanan Republican Mark Dankof about Israel, American foreign policy in the Middle East and Asia, and the role of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK/MKO/PMOI) in both.  A past Republican Party District Chairman in Seattle, Washington; U. S. Senate candidate in Delaware in 2000 for Howard Phillips’s Constitution Party; and radio voice in recent years with Lebanese-American Mark Glenn of The Ugly Truth, Dankof also serves as a Lutheran clergyman in San Antonio, Texas and theological graduate student.  His last academic degree’s thesis will deal with the subject of Christian Zionism and the latter’s role in shaping a pro-Israel American foreign policy.  Mr. Dankof’s recent appearances on Iran’s Press TV are augmented by his opinion-editorials, which include, “The Red Ladies:  Sara Flounders and Debra Sweet,” “Mark Dankof’s Final Word on Michael Collins Piper’s ‘Final Judgment’ on Israel and the Assassination of JFK,” “The Bank Markazi Blacklist Proposal:  Straight out of the McCollum Memorandum and the FDR Playbook for War,” “2012 Options for The Real Right:  But is it Too Late? ,” and “Rapture Rick Perry of Texas:  Israel’s Stealth GOP Presidential Candidate?

Habilian AssociationTell us about Intelligence collaboration between the MKO and the Israeli Mossad over Iran’s nuclear case.

Mark Dankof:  Information from non-classified sources is circumstantial but overwhelmingly strong.  Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal-State Fullerton, probably the leading authoritative source in the United States on the MEK, and its presently functional relationship with the Israeli Mossad and elements in the American intelligence community, has publicly stated via his own sources that the MEK is the leading tool of Israeli intelligence and American Neo-Conservatives in the latter’s espionage agencies in launching acts of destablization and violence directed at Iran’s current government and conducted illegally within Iranian borders.  Foote identifies the PJAK, the offshoot of the Kurdish separatist PKK, and the Jundallah, as the other elements in this dangerous game.  The MEK’s fingerprints in Tehran are joined by what seems to be a cooperative relationship with PJAK directed against the Iranian government in efforts launched from northeast Iraq and the Qandil Mountains and directed against Iranian Azerbaijan.  And suspicious terror activities in Khuzestan and Diyala Provinces in recent years seem to be augmented by bomb blasts and terror killings in Balochistan Province in Iran where it appears that the MEK’s partner-in-crime is the Jundallah based in Pakistan.  But again, the Hidden Hand is comprised of the obvious, bigger ultimate players and assets.  The increase in PKK attacks on Turkey since May 2009 coincides exactly with the corresponding time frames of the Turkish government’s public beefs with Israel over the Mavi Marmara shoot-up and other formal Erdogan government protests against the actions of the Netanyahu regime in Gaza and elsewhere.  What does this tell any of us?  But for the Israeli Mossad, the American CIA, the British MI6, and their respective Commanders-in-Chief, the operative concept is “plausible deniability.”

     Mainstream American governmental and media sources confirm publicly that the MEK is the source of the information being used by pro-Israeli American Neo-Conservatives to argue for a military attack on Iran to preemptively strike the latter’s alleged weaponized nuclear program and its suppposed desire to use it against Israel.  It is noteworthy that this “information” contradicts the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) report prepared by the 16 intelligence agencies of the American national security establishment regarding Iran and its nuclear program.  Worse yet, there have been repeated allegations in the international press corroborated by Israel’s critics in the American intelligence community that these MEK-generated reports and the lies in them being repeated incessantly by every War Party news agency from CNN to Fox News, World Net Daily, The Weekly Standard, NewsMax, and National Review, are in fact nothing more than the Israeli government’s brokering of deliberate agitation-propaganda to the voluminously gullible and ignorant consumers of these well-packaged charades which employ the MEK as the broker.  I believe Philip Giraldi of the Council for the National Interest and Buchanan’s The American Conservative, and former CIA station chief in a couple of different places over the years, is among those making this charge.  In essence, it would appear to be the case beyond a shadow of a doubt that the MEK is playing the same Judas Goat role for the American and Israeli intelligence establishments that the Iraqi National Congress (INC) and Ahmad Chalabi did with their brokered nonsense before the last American invasion of Iraq that Saddam Hussein possessed “Weapons of Mass Destruction.”  This is a critical angle to this present story involving the MEK.  Why should the people of the United States and honest policy makers in Washington (all 10 of them?) now believe sources on Iran in 2011 with every motive for lying and a past record of doing so, especially in the last ten years?

     After the last assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran, Newsweek magazine all but confirmed the role of the Mossad and the MEK in that murder (and the previous episodes as well).  The coverage was preposterously positive regarding these killings.  To put into perspective just how this ruthless game is played, your readers may find it interesting that when the late Sidney Harman owned Newsweek, his wife was California Democratic Congressman Jane Harman, a member of the House Intelligence Committee.  According to Pat Buchanan, Mrs. Harman was overheard on an American National Security Agency (NSA) wiretap assuring some Israelis at the other end of the conversation that she would use her considerable and covert influence on Capitol Hill to have American prosecutors drop their espionage case against Weissman and Rosen of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) for illegally obtaining classified National Security Council (NSC) documents on Iran from one Larry Franklin, so-called NSC expert on Iran.  This is just one example of how American financial, political, and media power always seems to intersect when it comes to the subject of Israel.  And since Israel and the MEK are now full business partners in directing their animus at Iran, the MEK will draw an increasingly free pass in the American media and government, as long as they are doing the Mossad and Israeli Lobby’s bidding.

     All of this of course, increases the moral bankruptcy of this policy mix exponentially, when considered in conjunction with the clearly established fact that Israel is the weaponized nuclear monolith of the Middle East; has never and presumably will never submit to any form of international inspection of its nuclear program, not to mention its known stockpile of every biological and chemical warfare agent known to humanity; while the Zionist State’s policies in Occupied Territories and Gaza, as evidenced by its military assault on the civilian Mavi Marmara humanitarian flotilla in international waters in May of 2009, and the earlier Operation Cast Lead in Gaza, are the acts of an increasingly desperate entity led by a criminal cabal of sociopaths.  If the United States is worrying about nuclear weapons in the hands of the wrong people, it should start with taking a hard look at our leading “ally” in the region.  But the money trail will keep that from ever happening.  . . .

Habilian Association: What do you know about further Israeli support for Mujahedin-e Khalq, I mean financially, logistically…?

Mark DankofOne presumes that the Israeli and American money trails going to and from the MEK are closely guarded black-operational intelligence secrets not necessarily even known in details and numbers by the denizens of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees.  Or shall we say, at least not known to anyone on those Committees of Alleged Oversight not in the back political and financial pocket of the Israeli Lobby.  That in and of itself, raises a related issue—the amount of PAC money going into American elections from approximately 30 PACS known to have direct or disguised links to the Israeli monolith in this country, as chronicled by Janet McMahon and Hugh Galford of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA).

     One recent news article is most suggestive, however.  That is Elizabeth Rubin’s New York Times op-ed of August 13th, “An Iranian Cult and its American Friends.”

     This article, in the most Corporate Establishment, pro-Zionist newspaper in America (along with The Washington Post), underscores that the MEK is exactly what the Habilian Association, Mark Dankof, Ed Blanche of The Middle East desk in Beirut, and the RAND Corporation say it is:  a totalitarian cult which not only possesses a warped “Islamic-Marxist” ideology that is inherently contradictory, but is led by Miryam and Masoud Rajavi in a fashion reminiscent of that which governed the Reverend Jim Jones’ leadership of his demonic religious cult at Jonestown a generation ago in Guyana.  Even more significantly, the Elizabeth Rubin expose provides a laundry list of people in the American military, intelligence, and political establishments who are fraudulently working to have the MEK removed from the State Department terrorist organization list and subsequently legitimized.  This would be bad enough, but they are doing it for money—plenty of it, to the tune of $25,000 to $50,000 a speaking engagement on the MEK’s behalf.  (see the excellent RAND Corporation report on the MEK at RAND_MG871 MEK PAPER )

     Most critically, Rubin’s essay is potent for what it doesn’t say, and is patently obvious to anyone familiar with the subject:  These paid American denizens of pro-MEK activities and plans have Israel’s fingerprints all over them.  The names in her article overlap with the Israeli oriented think tanks Inside the Beltway, and the Israeli money on Capitol Hill documented by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA).  One does not have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what is going on here.  This is ultimately the Israeli Lobby and the government of Benjamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman at work for apocalyptically nefarious purposes.

     The Elizabeth Rubin New York Times expose also mentions the “millions” at the disposal of the MEK for its current public relations campaign in the United States, using these bought-and-paid for players in the American establishment.  It begs the question:  Where do Miryam and Masoud Rajivi and the MEK get this kind of money?  On what basis does Elizabeth Rubin cite the ambiguous but potent term “millions” to describe their financial power?  How many “millions” are we talking about specifically?  And what rag-tag “Islamic-Marxist” cult presently camped out in Paris and Camp Ashraf can have “millions” to dispense on political hired guns in America without major outside sources of funding?  And who are these outside sources of this kind of cash?  Oil and banking come to mind as possible places to look.  Beyond that, one doesn’t have to look too much further to find Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Israel Lobby in the United States, and international oil consortiums, as the chief targets of suspicions as to who and what really constitutes the force behind the attempted renovation of the MEK’s image and fortunes in the West.

     Rubin’s New York Times piece of August 13th is also noteworthy for what it doesn’t mention or explain:  The MEK’s most well-heeled and connected American power broker is the Iran Policy Committee of Dr. Raymond Tanter of Georgetown University, his colleague Clair Lopez of the Central Intelligence Agency, and the assortment of Israeli oriented think tanks and individuals who shadow the Iran Policy Committee, including the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) strongly linked to Dr. Tanter.  This picture is abundantly clear, despite the reticence of The New York Times, at least to this point, to cover the real players and angles in the story.

Dr. Raymond Tanter: The Intersection of Georgetown University, the MEK/MKO/PMOI/NCRI, and the Israeli-influenced WINEP

     Perhaps the most spicy and inflammable aspect of the story of Dr. Raymond Tanter, Clair Lopez, and the Iran Policy Committee involves the explosive divorce of Raymond Tanter from his ex-wife, Constance Tanter.  Mrs. Tanter alleges a most incredible tale of international intrigue that resulted in the targeted demise of her marriage, career, and personal life, up to and including the specific charge that at the direction of her ex-husband, the MEK and Clair Lopez forcibly held Constance Tanter captive; transported her against her will to Paris, France; and subjected the Georgetown University professor’s wife to a coercive interrogation in the French capital designed to extort a signed capitulation to a divorce settlement characterized by Mrs. Tanter as literal robbery at gunpoint.  If Constance Tanter is telling the truth, Madam Rajavi was personally present for her interrogation and forced capitulation to a dictated divorce decree introduced into the American court system after the fact.

     Are the charges true?  Outsiders who have heard the allegations are at one level incredulous, yet uncommitted because of the cultic history of the Rajavis chronicled by Ed Blanche of The Middle East and other internationally credible sources.

Constance Tanter: Targeted by Raymond Tanter, Israeli Intelligence, and the MEK/MKO/PMOI in divorce settlement proceedings?

Alban Towers in Washington: DC Headquarters of The Iran Policy Committee and Denizens of Israeli Intelligence and the MEK

     One thing is crystal clear:  Mrs. Tanter is taking her allegations to The New York Times and other outlets who have already covered the MEK’s activities up to this point.  Her allegations are buttressed by a thick file of papers, diary notes, photostatically reproduced copies of Iran Policy Committee documents, and a complete list of the Iran Policy Committee’s e-mail contacts by name and accompanying e-mail addresses.  That list represents a virtual Who’s Who of the American Neo-Conservative, pro-Zionist Right; major figures in the Israeli government and intelligence community; MEK assets around the globe; and major players in a number of world governments and media outlets who seem to have more than a passing involvement with what Elizabeth Rubin terms, “An Iranian Cult.”  This story continues to unfold.

Habilian Association: What’s the role of Israel in the Iranophobia project and the creation of a false dichotomy between Iran and its neighboring countries? What would Israel find beneficial in playing a role in this ?

Mark Dankof:  This one is easy.  Any Internet search on the Iranophobia and Islamophobia projects internationally leads straight to Israel and its assets in the American Neo-Conservative Right.  The Center for American Progress report is among those that lead straight to the key players in the creation, funding, and dissemination of the Iranophobia and Islamophobia seeping out of Daniel Pipes, Pamela Geller, Frank Gaffney, Kenneth R. Timmerman, Stephen Emerson, and the Israeli foundations, PACS, and media outlets.  This is a no-brainer.  The way these jokers spun the Breivik murders in Norway is a primer for the way they do business in virtually everything else.  I keep waiting for these kosher Ken and Barbie Dolls to explain Zionism’s history with the United States going back to the relationship of the Meyer Lansky Crime Syndicate to the Jewish Haganah’s blowing up of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, the Lavon Affair, the Kennedy Assassination, the USS Liberty attack, the PROMIS affair, the Pollard spy case, and the recent AIPAC spy cases.  Frankly the Pipes, Geller, Gaffney, Emerson crowd reminds me of the old Colt 45 malt liquor TV commercials in the United States, where the guy sitting at the cafe table by himself in the middle of the bullfighter ring is oblivious to the real wars taking place all around him that constantly get closer to enveloping him while he quietly sips his drink.  The pro-Zionist American Right and Left are just like this:  focusing on an exaggerated and falsified threat, while ignoring the major player in the destruction of their national security, culture, political integrity, and economy.  It is pathetic.

     This is a $42 million dollar industry, the production and dissemination of the constant stream of anti-Iranian, anti-Islamic propaganda in the United States and Europe.  Someone is paying for it, and finds it profitable to continue paying for it.

     By the way, the classic example for our discussion is this:  Who produced and paid for the anti-Iranian propaganda film, Iranium, being promoted by Eric Cantor, Sam Brownback, Joseph Lieberman, and the usual suspects on Capitol Hill?  I don’t yet have the facts, but the promotional film available on the Internet is connected to Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy.  The television spokesperson for the film is none other than Clair Lopez of the Iran Policy Committee and the Central Intelligence Agency.  Get the picture?

Habilian Association:  What is your estimation of the recent American accusation of Iran’s attempt to kill the Saudi Arabian ambassador to US?

Mark Dankof:  I believe the accusation is absurd on its very face.  As I told Press TV the other night, the nature of this alleged plot presupposes that the Supreme Leader of Iran, the Guardians Council, President Ahmadinejad, and the leadership of the Islamic Republican Guard Corps are all idiots.  They clearly are not.  There is no way that anyone acquainted with the intelligence and shrewdness of these Iranian leaders would buy for one minute the notion that they would commission a plot as reckless as this one, with two Iranian individuals representing the unstable profiles of the accused, and in conjunction with an unproven asset in a Mexican drug cartel (who proved to be an American DEA informant).  This is straight out of the Keystone Cops.

     And when we ask who might have benefited by a false-flag operation of this type pinned on Iran, the clear answer is Israel and its Neo-Conservative agents of influence in the American government angling for a wider war in the Middle East.  Israel does not want any regional power in the Middle East threatening its absolute hegemony in the region, especially Iran.  Simultaneously, they need an international PR diversion from their illegal activities in Gaza, the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and elsewhere, where the Zionist State is clearly losing catastrophically in international opinion in every known venue outside that of the United States.  Even in the case of the latter, there are evidences of cracks in the canvas where the Netanyahu government is concerned.  And between the ominous downturn in the American national economy, and the upcoming Presidential election in 2012 where Obama and his GOP opponents are tripping over each other to demonstrate which has the most absolute fealty to American Jewry and the Israeli Lobby’s entrenched position on the Hill, the aggregate picture suggests the identity of the leading candidates for using this so-called Saudi Envoy Assassination Plot for their own non-publicly-advertised purposes and agendas.

     And now that there is a published allegation that Interpol in France has established an MEK-link and affiliation for the second terror suspect now in custody, the odor becomes even more pungent.  Yesterday’s New York Times made reference to this allegation, but only in a small strip column on page A8.  Where is Elizabeth Rubin on this one?  Or is the Israeli scent to the trail one her bosses have told her not to follow?  We shall see.  Mrs. Rubin’s July 13th, 2003 essay, “The Cult of Rajavi,” taken in tandem with her story of August 13th this year on the MEK, fills in many blanks.  Will she fill in the rest of them, and connect the rest of the dots for the composite portrait on the canvas?  If she should do so, some sordid people will run pell mell for the exits.  If she doesn’t, American Corporate/Zionist media will have failed the acid test one more time.

Habilian AssociationAfter all these many years, you should visit in Iran again.

Mark Dankof:  Time and political developments will determine whether or not God will grant me that special privilege.  If I do get the chance to come, it is my intention to also visit Yerevan and some of the Christian monsteries in Armenia, maybe in conjunction with another pilgrimage to the Armenian Christian Festival of St. Thaddeus at the Church of St. Stephanos in Azerbaijan Iran.  My own feelings about your country are best expressed by your 10th century poet, Ferdowsi.  I understand that chiseled on his stone tomb at Tus is an inscription of his immortal words which state, “Let not this body live if there is no Iran.”

Rapture Rick Perry of Texas: Israel’s Stealth GOP Presidential Candidate?

Mark Dankof: Perry's Financed Junket to Israel: Financed by the Doheny Global Group and Irwin Katsof's Global Capital Associates. What are the Real Implications?

“Wow!  Not even a whiff of a notion of the Presidency, and his lips are already lotioned to kiss ass.”

—Iranian-American Facebook blogger on Governor Rick Perry’s Zionist-inspired impending Presidential run

     P. T. Barnum aptly observed that there is a “sucker born every minute.”  In the case of the Tea Party activist movement, the birth rate may be one every second.  The prospects for the movement, and the country, are identically both abysmal and comedic.  Perhaps tragedy is truly the flip side of comedy.

     What is presently happening in 2011 in the Republican Presidential sweepstakes can be understood against the backdrop of the 1996 GOP wars.  15 years ago, the International Central Bankers, Neo-Conservatives, anti-Catholic bigots, and the ever present Christian Zionist nutcases were having collective heart failure over the prospect of a Pat Buchanan nomination.  For the most part, Buchanan wasn’t rising above 30% of the vote in any given primary (save Michigan after the battle had already been decided), but in the early going those figures packed considerable clout in a multi-candidate field, resulting in a victory in the Louisiana caucus that finished Phil Grimm, and a first-round victory in the kickoff New Hampshire primary.  It was clear that Tricky Dick’s ex-speechwriter was terrifying the power brokers.

      It became necessary for these brokers to develop a playbook to destroy Pat Buchanan.

     The playbook that successfully accomplished this purpose included the following three components:  1) enlisting Israeli-asset Alan Keyes, William Kristol’s roommate at Harvard, to enter the Iowa caucus to divide the conservative vote and ensure Bob Dole’s ensuing victory and subsequent drive to the nomination;  and 2)  tapping the Christian Coalition’s Ralph Reed as Dole’s liaison to the Religious Right, ensuring the Faithful that Dole was a Pro-Life Evangelical (a crock) and a 10th Amendment man (another crock).

     Reed’s enlisted effort for this political fraud was successful, despite the clear voting paper trail of Dole in the U. S. Senate, and the problematically untidy issue of the Senator’s impregnation of a campaign worker while running for President in 1980 against Reagan.  Conservative Caucus Chairman Howard Phillips printed the evidence on this latter scandal, compounded in damage potential by the published proof that Dole Chief-of-Staff Craig Fuller had taken the lady to an abortionist in Kansas City named Dr. William Crist.  Ralph Reed helped to insure that this information never came to light in Evangelical circles. His service to Dole and the New World Order establishment lurking in the darkness behind the senior Senator from Kansas, went a long way toward the development of the client list and the greenbacks for his current Creative Consultants operation, which has included business with such Godly people as Jack Abramoff.

     Climatically, Reed’s slimy presence was augmented in the playbook by the third ingredient in the carefully devised game plan, 3) the entrance of William F. Buckley’s pro-Zionist National Review into the 1996 GOP Presidential forayemployed in a joint effort with the mainstream Time, Newsweek, and U. S. News and World Report magazines, in collectively assailing Pat Buchanan on cue as an anti-Semite whose views were totally outside the mainstream of the Republican Party.

     The pivotal importance and critical significance of the William F. Buckley angle to the Israeli Lobby’s assault on Pat Buchanan is given its proper historical context by Dr. E. Michael Jones of Culture Wars, in his April 2007 essay in that publication entitled, “The Death of Conservatism.”  The Jones piece is a review of the late Murray Friedman’s magnum opus, “The Neo-Conservative Revolution:  Jewish Intellectuals and the Shaping of Public Policy” [Cambridge:  Cambridge University Press, 2005].  There, Jones informs us via Friedman, that National Review was essentially run by the Jews who employed it and financed Bill Buckley, for the express purpose of hijacking the American conservative movement for the “ruling class internationalist establishment” and its accompanying Zionist interests, in the process destroying the careers of prominent spokesmen in the movement not co-opted by the hidden hand.  These careers included the late Joe Sobran and Sam Francis, and, of course, Patrick J. Buchanan.  Jewish activists like Frank Meyer, Frank Chodorov, Morrie Raskin, Willi Schlamm, and Marvin Liebman were the power behind the emerging William F. Buckley persona on the national political scene, especially Schlamm, who drew up the publication’s financial plan, and Liebman, the guru of subscriber recruitment and financing.  Jones notes the specifics of the Marvin Liebman biography for the purpose of contextualizing The Lobby’s unfurling plan of deployment of both Buckley and his flagship magazine over the decades to follow:

     “What conservatism lacked in philosophical coherence, however, it made up for in effective political organizing techniques which its ‘founding Jewish fathers’ remembered from their days in the Communist Party.  Or from their days in Zionist terrorist organizations.

     “In terms of organization, the most influential of [William F.] Buckley’s ‘circle of Jews’ was a former communist who came to conservatism via Zionism, in particular via the terrorist organization known as Irgun Zvai Leumi.  His name was Marvin Liebman and in addition to serving as publisher of National Review, he created the fund-raising technique known as direct mail, which would play a major role in the political movements surrounding Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan.

     “In 1946 Liebman was captured trying to smuggle Jews into Palestine and held in a British detention camp on Cyprus for 15 days.  . . .”

     Buckley’s National Review thus became the prototype of other front publications and outlets making their appearance on the American Right in the years that followed, including William Kristol’s The Weekly Standard, Christopher Ruddy’s NewsMax, Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News, the Unification Church’s Washington Times, Human Events, and Joseph Farah’s Internet-based World Net Daily.  Along with the Israeli-controlled American Religious Right print and broadcasting operations, ranging from the Scofield Reference Bible to John Hagee’s syndicated television show, these opinion makers have enabled the Zionist State and its domestic American power brokers to effectively gain a stranglehold on the promotion of Republican political candidates who reflect Tel Aviv’s interests exclusively, even as Israel’s real record of performance since 1948 is systematically withheld from unsuspecting grassroots American conservatives who vote in Republican primaries.

Pat Buchanan: The Anti-Defamation League Inspired Hit Job of 1996 is Joined by Buckley's National Review

     Now fast forward to 2012.  It is clear that the only candidate in the GOP Presidential field not totally co-opted by multi-national corporate interests, the New World Order, and the Christian Zionist zealots being used skillfully by the first two constituencies, is Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX/14th Congressional District).

     Paul’s strong suits are the ability to raise money, and the role he plays as the sole candidate in the field talking about the dangers of a Federal Reserve-run monetary policy and an interventionist foreign policy.  His weaker points involve less strength than desired as a television media candidate, and his advancing age (75).  There is another vulnerability, noted in my op-ed of last week:  the fact that the Congressman has finessed the eternal question of the Zionist State of Israel, and its accompanying American domestic Jewish lobby, despite the fact that his expressed views on major topics would seem to lead, inexorably, to an inevitable public discussion of this matter in the developing Presidential primary campaign in the Republican Party.

     How The Lobby and its Neo-Conservative agents of influence handle the Paul candidacy in the coming months will make for one of the more interesting stories of the 2012 campaign for the American Presidency.  With a primary campaign season that is deliberately front-loaded, one may anticipate the early nomination of an internationalist Republican Presidential candidate by Super Tuesday next year and the quick fade of a Ron Paul candidacy that is now in its third cycle since his initial run on the Libertarian ticket in 1988.

     But if Paul surprises the pundits and achieves early electoral successes akin to those of Pat Buchanan in 1996, he needs to get ready for an assault similar to that launched on Nixon’s speechwriter 15 years ago.  Arguably the Congressman makes a far more difficult target for slander and character assassination than Buchanan did at the hands of Abe Foxman and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith (ADL), but this fact will not preclude what will come if the Representative of Texas’s 14th Congressional District confounds conventional political wisdom and gets out of the starting gate early as a contender for the Presidential nomination of the GOP.  As Iran’s Press TV reports, Ron Paul’s enemies already plan to gerrymander him out of business.  The playbook’s gameplan in 2011 will escalate well beyond that beginning venture, if future circumstances dictate.  Watch your back, Good Doctor.

     This then begs the obvious question.  If The Lobby is successful as usual in preempting the candidacy of a candidate who threatens it, who among the bought-and-paid for wannabes in the Republican Presidential Sweepstakes will emerge as The Anointed for the fall of 2012?

Rapture Rick Perry: Tapped by the Ghosts of Marvin Liebman and Willi Schlamm as Likud's Man for the White House?

     Stated another way, who has been put forth by the cover of National Review this year as a GOP Presidential option, along with the identical suggestion of Newsweek Magazine in the same time frame?

     The answer:  Rapture Rick Perry, the Governor of Texas.

     Perry’s heightened visibility recently seems to coincide with Netanyahu’s recent Washington trip.  It was abundantly obvious to any informed observer that the Israeli PM was sending a clear message to Barack Obama and the Democratic Party that The Lobby had other options if the President’s Middle East policy proved to be less than a total lock for AIPAC and Friends.

     And the Texas Governor’s credentials with the Zionist State, bankers, military contractors, and the Christian Right prove absolutely impeccable.  Perry’s stop in Los Angeles today to assail Mr. Obama  on the latter’s position on abortion is tailor made to appeal to the constituency left panting by Mike Huckabee’s mysterious withdrawal from The Sweepstakes, and the failure thus far of alternatives ranging from Michelle Bachmann to Sarah Palin to catch early fire with the followers of Pastor John Hagee of Cornerstone Church/San Antonio, and the odious Christians United for Israel (CUFI) front.

Is the Fix In? Newsweek joins National Review: Rapture Rick As The Lobby's GOP Anointed?

     Those credentials were solidified in a June 2007 junket to Israel, paid for by Irwin Katsof’s Global Capital Associates and the Doheny Global Group which includes Tom Ridge as a Strategic Limited Partner.  This trip, and its financiers, provide the Rosetta Stone necessary to decipher the forces behind the sudden media ascendancy of Rick Perry approaching 2012.

     And not coincidentally, June 2007 was the same month and year according to Democratic Underground, that Governor Perry was an invited guest of the shadowy international Bilderberg Group.  Paul Burka, columnist for Texas Monthly reported then that the Texas Governor was joined by:

      “Kathleen Sibelius, governor of Kansas; Kristen Silverberg, Assistant Secretary of State; Ross Wilson, ambassador to Turkey; Paul Wolfowitz, World Bank;  Philip Zelikow, ex-“9/11” Commissioner; Richard Holbrooke, Perseus LLC; Vernon Jordan Jr., Lazard Freres & Co.; Henry Kravis, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR); Henry Kissinger, Kissinger & Associates; Richard Perle, Ex-Defense Policy Board, and several others.”

     Burka then went to note that:

     “. . .  Gov. Rick Perry is headed to Israel to receive the Friend of Zion Award for his ‘leadership in homeland defense, border security, and economic development.  . . .  Gov. Rick Perry and First Lady Anita Perry today left on a seven-day trip to visit the Middle East nations of Israel and Jordan. In Israel, Gov. Perry will receive the ‘Friend of Zion Award’ from the Global Leadership Council   for his leadership in homeland defense, border security and economic development. The award, which is given to ‘leaders who have played key roles in promoting the close alliance between America and the Jewish state,’ will be presented during a ceremony in Jerusalem at the historic Western Wall Square.

     “Perry is also scheduled to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, former Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and former Prime Minister and newly elected President Shimon Peres. In addition, he will meet with the Israeli Chief Scientist, Dr. Eli Opper, and several representatives of the aeronautics, defense systems, homeland security and biotechnology industries.  . . .”

No Man Can Serve Two Masters: Governor Perry's is Israel.

     One thing is absolutely sure in Campaign 2012:  No one will ask Perry in Corporate Media about his chats with these Israeli intelligence and scientific moguls against the backdrop of the charge recently made by Philip Giraldi on Iranian Press TV that Israel engages in more spying and technology theft against the United States than any other American “ally.”  Giraldi is the ex-CIA Station Chief in Turkey, Executive Director of the Council for the National Interest , and columnist for The American Conservative.  How much of Israel’s espionage operation targeting the United States may involve Global Capital Associates, the Doheny Global Group, and the Perry-backed Texas-Israel Chamber of Commerce would make for an interesting research project for Mr. Giraldi and his Council.

     And as for the American Presidential “debates” promulgated by CNN and Fox News, here are a few suggestions for material to be directed toward the Governor of the Lone Star State when his hat is thrown into the ring:

     “Governor Perry, how do you feel about a fiat American currency, a direct Federal income tax, usurious interest rates, endless foreign wars, a morally polluted American culture, an economic globalism which has destroyed the once-vaunted American manufacturing economy, and the imposition of a domestic technological surveillance structure that threatens to replace the freedoms of our beloved Old Republic with a repristinated Stalinism?

     “Governor Perry, 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?  Secondly, 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?

Even Rapture Rick Perry Has to Cover his Face at John Hagee's Love-In for Israel.

     “Governor Perry, given your recent attacks on Barack Obama in Los Angeles over the President’s position on abortion, why are we in an alliance as American conservatives and evangelical Christians 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?

     “Governor Perry, 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, Governor Perry, are you here today talking about recovering American Constitutional Principles, 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, $14 trillion in national debt, and every globalist trade treaty that has destroyed both American sovereignty and our economic vitality?       

     “Governor Perry, why are you not concerned with Philip Giraldi’s charge that Israeli intelligence is promoting agitation-propaganda through the Rupert Murdoch News Corp chain designed to begin a Third World War?  Why are you silent about the charges of our ex-CIA Station Chief in Turkey regarding Israeli infiltration of our intelligence agencies, our Homeland Security Department, our Transportation Safety Administration (TSA), and our telecommunications industry?

     “Governor Perry, should AIPAC and John Hagee’s Christians United for Israel be forced to register as agents of a foreign government?

     “And Governor Perry, do you support the utilization of nuclear weapons against Iran and its people?”

     The American people would await the answers in these upcoming Presidential debates, if only they knew what the real questions of the campaign are.  . . .

     Does Ron Paul?
