“And therein we find, neglected by us, the simplest, the most accessible key to our liberation: a personal non-participation in lies! Even if all is covered by lies, even if all is under their rule, let us resist in the smallest way: Let their rule hold not through me!“
My feelings about the irresponsible character of American and NATO policy vis a vis Vladimir Putin and Russia are a matter of public record. One can go back to my essay entitled, “America the Beautiful: Why We’re Finished” to review my published remarks several years ago on the machinations of the United States in this regard. I have also touched upon this briefly in my recently published remarks on the Brexit vote now reposted at Al Jazeerah, in occasional conversations with Press TV, and in previous work with both Patrick Slattery on RBN radio and you in a recent publish on Veterans Today.
My feelings are apparently shared by Mr. Putin himself. The Russian government has quite rightly began moving against the NGO’s linked to George Soros and other well-heeled subversives in the largely Jewish Tribal establishment promoting the toxic brew of Zionism, Central Banking, and Cultural Marxism which has completely enveloped the West and destroyed the older European Christian influences of both Europe and the United States eradicated by both World Wars in the 20th century and their aftermath. The economic sanctions, cultural subversion, and hourly global agitation-propaganda campaign aimed at the Putin regime and the Russian nation are now joined by the methodologies of black intelligence operations in places like Ukraine in February of 2014, and the overt military threat posed by the continued deployment of NATO and American military assets in Eastern Europe ever closer to Russian borders, augmented by the ongoing recruitment of countries on the Russian periphery for membership in NATO, including overtures to Montenegro, Ukraine, and Georgia. Given the specifics of Article V of the NATO charter, and the clear possibility of Russian military activity to legitimately protect their own backyard, the spectre of the likelihood of a NATO and American military conflict with Russia is made even more probable by these provocative and unjustifiable moves which have nothing to do with the Cold War doctrine of deterrence. The Guardian’s post on the recent Anaconda 2016 NATO war games in Poland, and the recent switching on of the U. S. ballistic missile shield in Deveselu, Romania, have brought the breaking of Bush 41’s promises to Gorbachev and the later unilateral American cancellation of the provisions of the ABM treaty to an entirely new level of dishonesty and recklessness.
My perspective on this and that of the Russian President and his Foreign Minister is shared by a number of other people. I would commend Eric Margolis’ “War With Russia is Coming.” Ex-CIA Station Chief and head of the Council for the National Interest, Dr. Philip Giraldi, has a July 13th release for Pat Buchanan’s The American Conservative entitled, “Russian Harassment and Other Fables.” Dr. Giraldi’s post for The Unz Review on June 28th, “The Magnitsky Hoax? Who Stole the Money?” adds to the mix. Finally, Robert Parry at Consortium News has an article out July 14. See “NATO Reaffirms its Bogus Russia Narrative.”
All of these gentlemen underscore two essential ingredients inherent in American and NATO policy where Russia is concerned: Duplicity and absolute madness. The Parry piece notes the absolutely Orwellian character of the recent Warsaw Summit Communique of the Western powers which condemn “Russian aggression” by noting the non-existent intelligence data and supporting analysis for the mantras of the Communique which repristinate memories of the Weapons of Mass Destruction fraud in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, the constant glossalalia of top officials of NATO and American Neo-Conservatives on the subject of Putin and Russia, and the incessant drone of falsehoods repeated daily in the lapdog mainstream Western media.
He states unequivocally:
“The leaders – at least the key ones – know that there is no credible intelligence that Russian President Vladimir Putin provoked the Ukraine crisis in 2014 or that he has any plans to invade the Baltic states, despite the fact that nearly every ‘important person’ in Official Washington and other Western capitals declares the opposite of this to be reality.
“But there have been a few moments when the truth has surfaced. For instance, in the days leading up to the just-completed NATO summit in Warsaw, General Petr Pavel, chairman of the NATO Military Committee, divulged that the deployment of NATO military battalions in the Baltic states was a political, rather than military, act.
“It is not the aim of NATO to create a military barrier against broad-scale Russian aggression, because such aggression is not on the agenda and no intelligence assessment suggests such a thing,” Pavel told a news conference.
“What Pavel blurted out was what I have been told by intelligence sources over the past two-plus years – that the endless drumbeat of Western media reports about ‘Russian aggression’ results from a clever demonization campaign against Putin and a classic Washington ‘group think’ rather than from a careful intelligence analysis.”
It is critical to understand that the lies and agitation-propaganda being spun by the official American governmental and media narrative on who the aggressor and malefactor is in the present crisis mirrors the official line on how 9-11 happened and who was responsible for bringing it about. It mirrors the official line on American Neo-Conservative and Zionist untruth about Iran and the historical tragedies in the American relationship with that country since 1953. It mirrors the falsehoods of the United States and Israel about what really happened in Palestine in the late 1940s. It mirrors the official lies perpetrated about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the Kennedy Assassination. For that matter, one can reach farther back in the linear historical stream to the official line perpetrated on Abraham Lincoln and the American War Between the States held so dear by American Neo-Conservatives and Lovers of Empire.
Mr. Putin’s frustration with the duplicity of the United States and NATO is compounded by the inherent madness in the direction taken by the West in all of this. This comes forth very clearly in the brief clip of his airing of frustrations aimed at the Western media after the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum of June 17th. What is breathtaking is their full participation not simply in the lies, but in their stupefying failure to see the slope toward world war and apocalypse obviously steepening in the continued pushing of the envelope by the United States, NATO, and the EU in making global conflict and some form of nuclear exchange likely. And over what? It certainly isn’t the legitimate national defense of the United States and Western Europe. It has everything to do with the ongoing exportation of a brand of coercive globalism and World Government which threaten Russian autonomy as a sovereign nation-state free of the tentacles of the Beast. The implication may well be that failure to subdue the Bear by economic sanctions, demonization, and cultural subversion, will leave overt military aggression as the weapon of final resort.
Duplicity is more than matched by literal madness and insanity. Does the American Cabal of Empire and New World Order truly believe Russia will fail to defend its national honor, history, culture, autonomy, and homeland from this unfolding onslaught? Has The Cabal and its fawning paid agents in the Western media forgotten that Russia, unlike Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, and Iran, is a nuclear power with a bona fide army and navy to match? Putin’s directed remarks to foreign correspondents on June 17th in St. Petersburg underscore his disbelief in the Pavlovian dogs of Western media. The tone of his voice, his facial intonations and body language give special power to the desperately heartfelt statements in that press conference, like “I don’t know how to get through to you people. . . . How do you not understand that the world is being pulled in an irreversible direction? . . .“
This “irreversible direction” can only be reversed by a wholesale domestic American and European revolt against The Cabal. It has not yet happened despite the wholesale destruction of the demographic, economic, cultural, spiritual, and political fortunes of millions in the West in the last 100 years of history. What remains to be seen is whether or not the threat of fire raining down on European and American cities will be enough to produce sufficient will and resolve to resist the tyranny of The Cabal and the seemingly irreversible and insane course it has charted toward cataclysm, or whether the Culture of Death and the nihilism produced by that culture for those entrapped in addictions to sexual decadence, drugs, and worship of technology will render meaningful resistance impossible.
Solzhenitsyn seems ominously prophetic when he tells us that “We are approaching the brink; already a universal spiritual demise is upon us; a physical one is about to flare up and engulf us and our children, while we continue to smile sheepishly and babble.“
Mark Dankof’s Open Invitation to Rabbi Aryeh Tuchman of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith in New York: Come Out of the Closet and Join Us
Rabbi Aryeh Tuchman
Director, Library and Research Center
Assistant Director, Civil Rights Division
Headquarters: The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith/New York
RE: Your anonymous Internet posts at “J-Hate” on Mark Dankof, Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal State-Fullerton , Mark Glenn, Michael Collins Piper, Mark Weber of the Institute for Historical Review (IHR), and Press TV/Iran
Dear Rabbi Tuchman:
You have been positively identified by IPS address and e-mail research/trace as the person posting materials anonymously on the Internet on all the individuals and entities mentioned above, including me, on a website entitled, “J-Hate.”
I have begun researching you on the Internet since discovering your specific interest in me. Max Blumenthal’s April 13th, 2010 essay at Mondoweiss, entitled, “Propagandistic Anti-Semitism Report Raises The Linkage Issue,” links your name to that specific effort. Blumenthal’s research and spin tells me a great deal on an initial basis, even as I continue to learn more ongoingly.
As chronicled in my previous essay, “J-Hate: Yes, Hate, but Also Cowardice,” you indicated to me via a message sent to my Word Press blog that it was your desire that I not discover your real identity. The J-Hate site also failed to publish my comments e-mailed to it, in response to the initial posts that involved my name.
Now that I am fully apprised as to your actual identity and role in all of this, I must say that I am mystified as to why you and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith in New York would feel it necessary to engage in such cowardly and clandestine activity on the World Wide Web, especially since all of the figures targeted by your efforts are amenable to cordial and public conversation and debate about your perceptions and concerns.
Personally, I find free and fair exchange of ideas in an honest forum and format to be eminently preferable to the utilization of innuendo, guilt-by-indirect-association, ad hominem attacks, and downright deliberate falsehood, especially when employed by someone of your stature who is dishonorably operating in a darkened closet (or is it a running subterranean sewer system?) in both New York and Tel Aviv.
Proper, peaceful, and lawful exercise of Constitutionally-guaranteed First Amendment rights and freedoms in the public arena among people of good will with diametrically opposed political positions used to define the United States of America as the bedrock foundation of its government, its people, and its institutions. What is happening in this country, Rabbi, as conveyed by actions like yours? Perhaps more importantly, why is it happening?
The ADL has a history too lengthy to recount here, but its fingerprints (and those of its sister organizations, the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Israeli Mossad) are all over several recent publicly outlandish embarrassments that are most suggestive of where this country is headed.
The first is the public leak of the existence of the now-infamous Missouri Action Information Center (MIAC) report of several years ago, which your organization played a direct role in producing in conjunction with our Federal Homeland Security Department. As chronicled in the Americans for Legal Immigration’s (AIPAC) advisory on MIAC, the SPLC, and your ADL:
ALIPAC is issuing a national advisory to all local, state, and Federal law enforcement agencies and officers, along with all DHS Fusion Centers, a warning against any reliance upon faulty and politicized research issued by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and Anti Defamation League (ADL).
A national scandal emerged in Missouri, after their MIAC Fusion Center issued an eight page document which made many false claims. The documents attempted to politicize police and cast suspicion on millions of Americans. The ‘Missouri Documents’, as they came to be called, listed over 32 characteristics police should watch for as signs or links to domestic terrorists, which could threaten police officers, court officials, and infrastructure targets.
Police were instructed to look for Americans who were concerned about unemployment, taxes, illegal immigration, gangs, border security, abortion, high costs of living, gun restrictions, FEMA, the IRS, The Federal Reserve, and the North American Union/SPP/North American Community. The ‘Missouri Documents’ also said potential domestic terrorists might like gun shows, short wave radios, combat movies, movies with white male heroes, Tom Clancey Novels, and Presidential Candidates Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and Chuck Baldwin!
The Southern Poverty Law Center was cited as a research source for the ‘Missouri Documents’. Furthermore, the attempt of these documents to cast suspicion of violent and life threatening behavior on millions of Americans who are concerned about these issues is consistent with the regularly released political materials of both the SPLC and ADL.
A second and related incident crops up in the State of Kentucky, where it emerges at the Daily Paul site that Mr. Baldwin’s Constitution Party was similarly libeled as a “hate group.” Surely you are aware that the Constitution Party was founded by ex-Nixon cabinet member Howard Phillips, of Jewish background, who also serves as chairman of Washington’s Conservative Caucus. Phillips has been a Washington insider held in high personal esteem by both his friends and adversaries Inside-the-Beltway for decades. The Constitution Party’s last two Presidential nominees, Michael Peroutka of Baltimore, and Chuck Baldwin of Pensacola, are an attorney-at-law and Baptist pastor respectively. Like their counterparts Howard Phillips, Pat Buchanan, and Ron Paul, no sane person could detect anything about these men in ideological persuasion or personal life, that could possibly be used to support the notion that they and their political parties and followers represent any notions of racism, bigotry, violence, or advocacy of behaviors designed to threaten the Constitutional Republic each has dedicated his life to restoring. The irresponsible characterizations and canards emanating from the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith and the Southern Poverty Law Center about all of this will not stand up to even cursory inspection and examination.
And by now of course, you are also undoubtedly aware that I was the Constitution Party’s U. S. Senate candidate against Thomas Carper and the late William Roth, in 2000. Since Senator Carper is friendly to the Jewish lobby and Israeli interests up on the Hill, why not pick up the phone and ask him what he knows about me personally? Be sure to tell him what you and the ADL are up to in terms of updating your dossiers on me, along with Phillips, Peroutka, Baldwin, Buchanan, and Paul. He can advise you accordingly on what to do with me in particular, once the raucous laughter dies down in his office. . . .
Finally, the ADL’s ongoing attempts to label Pat Buchanan as an “anti-Semite” are a matter of most interesting public record available for additional closer inspection. I notice that Eric Margolis, long-time international correspondent and contributor to the Toronto Sun and other syndicated outlets, has positively reviewed Buchanan’s book on the Second World War. Is Margolis now going to be pilloried for flirtations with advocates of “extremism” and “hate” ? And what about millions of Americans and people world-wide who have concluded that Buchanan is a more than credible academic voice and historian in chronicling what has gone wrong with with the government, economy, and foreign policy of the United States? Will all of these folks become a part of the computerized data base being developed by your office in New York?
And speaking of the Toronto Sun, I have apparently been on your office’s radar screen since writing a Letter-to-the-Editor of that newspaper some years ago, in rebuttal of one Michael Coren, whose missal advocating the mass murder of Iranians via preemptive nuclear attack had been previously published there. My rejoinder was re-posted by the Jewish Foundation of Greater Toronto.
I’m curious, Rabbi Tuchman. Are my ideas in this letter to the Toronto Sun really beyond-the-pale, or do they not only reflect the point of view of millions of Americans if the truth be both known and told, but even the concerns of people in your own camp historically, as evidenced by the Los Angeles Times’ recent essay entitled, “In Israel, Growing Intolerance,” and Jerome Slater’s 2007 missal in Tikkun, “The Need Not to Know: The American Jewish Community and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict ?“
Or, conversely, are the dangerous neo-Nazi legions and denizens at the Los Angeles Times and Tikkun now joining Mark Dankof, Pat Buchanan, Ron Paul, Howard Phillips, Mark Glenn, Mark Weber, and Paul Sheldon Foote as future targets of a covert Hasbara Project operation of discreditation on your part, and that of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith?
And for the goyim among us, there may be an additional question of clarification: When does a mere sayan become a kidon? And will the intended victims of what is developing be given the chance to purchase an additional bit of life insurance?
One thing would seem not to be in doubt upon examination of the evidence. The Old American Republic is being traded in for its replacement by an ominously repristinated Stalinism, both in domestic and foreign policy. Mark Weber’s essay at the Institute of Historical Review on the old Russian model and revolution may be applicative here.
Let’s face it. Like Old Uncle Joe’s predecessor version, we now have in the post-9/11 era in America, a proliferation of warrantless wire tapping and break-ins; accompanied by circumvention of the FISA court by several Chief Executives; and an entirely new version of American jurisprudence documented by James Bovard’s essay, “Assassin Nation,” where a Justice Department lawyer named Douglas Letter argued last November 9th in Federal Court that the President of the United States has the authority to order the extra-judicial killing of American citizens, and that no Judge has the right to be “looking over the [Obama] Administration’s shoulder” where this program is concerned.
Given this environment, what unease should be felt by law-abiding citizens of our land who express dissent from our government’s policies, including those American conservatives defamed in the MIAC report? What about the fears of decent Arab-Americans and Iranian-Americans who live in an age of burgeoning Islamophobia?
Notably, this loyal dissent by many profiled Americans left, right, and center, has involved explicit criticism of the Israeli Lobby, of which the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith is but one component, and the government of the Zionist State of Israel.
I, for one, do not support handing $10 billion a year to Israel in American taxpayers’ money, to continue enabling the latter to illegally occupy territories denied to it by international law. I don’t support the continuation of the laughable campaign finance laws in this country that have allowed some 30-odd PACs connected to the Israeli Lobby to flood the American electoral process with money guaranteed to enable a foreign power to exert its undue influence in our Congress, especially by packing its hand-picked emissaries in disproportionate numbers on Committees and Sub-Committees related to Intelligence, Foreign Policy, Homeland Security, and Appropriations (as chronicled by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs).
I especially protest Israel’s criminal attack last May on the Mavi Marmara Freedom Flotilla in international waters, and the murderous policies being pursued in Gaza which culminated in this atrocity. I do not support Israel’s resort to “targeted, extra-judicial killings” (read “assassinations”), anymore than I support these practices when used by any government on the planet, including my own. And despite recent the endorsement of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK) by Rudolph Giuliani, Frances Townsend, Clare Lopez, Dr. Raymond Tanter, Tom Tancredo, and other American Neo-Conservatives with connections to Israel’s Lobby and its intelligence agencies, I continue to affirm what the record shows—that the MEK is indeed a Marxist terror organization with a long history of shed blood, and that its recent claims of responsibility for various acts of murder and mayhem in Tehran, and in the Diyala, Balochistan, and Azerbaijan provinces in Iran, reveal the less-than-hidden hand of the Israeli Mossad and American CIA in these events. Is murder truly murder, and terror truly terror, regardless of the identity of perpetrators and victims, or shall it be excused by the Israeli Lobby and its agents of influence in the American government in this situation, as it was in the Irgun’s bombing of the King David Hotel in 1946, and in the subsequent celebration of this latter criminal event by Mr. Netanyahu and Company as chronicled in the Sunday Times?
Finally, in the wake of the Jonathan Pollard and Rosen-Weissman spy cases (see ex-CIA station chief in Turkey Philip Giraldi’s new article on the latter), the Lavon Affair, the PROMIS affair, and Israel’s premeditated attack on the USS Liberty (a judgment shared by Dean Rusk, Richard Helms, and Admiral Thomas Moorer), I most certainly oppose the American government’s inexplicable, ill-advised, and little-examined policy of sub-contracting lucrative and sensitive business related to the functions of domestic and international telecommunications; Homeland and TSA-related airport security operations; legitimate American military and intelligence agency work; and essential domestic law enforcement and investigatory projects and functions at both the Federal and State level, to Israeli-owned and affiliated front groups and companies.
For reasons that should be painfully obvious by now, that includes our government’s ill-fated involvement with the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith and Southern Poverty Law Center in profiling and demonizing honest American citizens, as both your clandestine role with the JHate web site and the aforementioned MIAC report fiasco illustrate. Taken in conjunction with Mr. Giraldi’s new research on the AIPAC spy case, it is clear to many that both your organization and the latter should be defined as registered agents of a foreign regime under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), and forced to comply with the spirit and the letter of its stipulations.
One additional recent public revelation that illustrates the point should be included. This involves the role of the Mossad-affiliated Institute of Terrorism Research and Response organization (with headquarters in Philadelphia and Tel Aviv) in conducting officially commissioned profiling of American citizens in the State of Pennsylvania for covert investigative purposes. The tragic-comedic results of this contractual relationship are available for all to see through Google search, including the official apology of Governor Ed Rendell for the actions of ITRR while on his State’s payroll. It is my understanding that the contract has since been canceled. But it begs the question: Is your activity at J-Hate, and ITRR’s activity in Pennsylvania, the tip of the iceberg?
I join, however, with colleague Michael Collins Piper, once the subject of an ADL spying operation, in calling for our new Republican Homeland Security Subcommittee Chairman, Representative Peter King of your home state of New York, to lead an investigation in Congress of this entire insidious spider web, and for the subsequent results of his Committee’s work to be made openly available to the American people. This includes names of companies, financial figures, how specific contracts were granted to the organizations and individuals in question, and how the entire problem developed in the first place. It should make for interesting reading.
Finally, Rabbi Tuchman, I offer two (2) sincere invitations. The first is for you to be a special guest on Mark Glenn’s The Ugly Truth for sure, and perhaps on Press TV/Iran as well, to discuss many of these issues related to our respective views and concerns, in an open and fair atmosphere of civility and charity. It would be our intention to include Howard Phillips of the Constitution Party; Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal-State Fullerton; Mark Weber of the Institute of Historical Review (IHR); Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX); Patrick J. Buchanan; and Dr. Paul Craig Roberts in these on-air chats, which may well prove stimulating enough for a multiple number of shows and appearances to be scheduled and produced for the international listening and viewing audiences. I reiterate that this invitation is heartfelt and sincere. I have sent this open letter to the folks at Press TV/Iran in the hope that they might consider an invitation to you in this identical spirit.
The second invitation is issued clergyman-to-clergyman. I invite you to repent of the practice of posting questionable materials on the Internet anonymously, and to consider the condition of your own heart, and that of colleagues like Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, when it comes to automatically assigning malignant motives rooted in racial and religious bigotry and malicious hatred to those who disagree with the Zionist agenda for both America and the world, while seemingly excluding the live possibility that this may well explain many of Israel’s actions in the Middle East since the late 1940s and those of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith, both in the United States and worldwide.
Come out of the closet and join us. Let us reason together even as our disagreements are likely to remain deep and potentially unbridgeable.
