Fort Sumter, False Flags, and The Empire’s Coming Crusade Against Iran

Mark Dankof in Washington, D. C. in November of 2011

     It is no accident that Michael Gerson, a major schill of the Establishment Corporate Media’s (ECM) chorus for a Zionist-inspired war with Iran, has stepped forward in the Washington Post to broadside Congressman Ron Paul of Texas, and to concurrently publish a breathtaking synthesis of ignorance and duplicity regarding the American War Between the States in the 19th century.  Gerson is joined in his transparent machinations for the Israeli Lobby against the Presidential campaign of the Texas Republican Congressman by fellow agents Wolf Blitzer and Dana Bash of CNN, who pulled the plug on U. S. Army Corporal Jesse Thorsen during an on-air interview with the Corporal on the night of the January 3rd Iowa Caucus.  It seems the young man’s comments on why the United States didn’t need to be a surrogate military force in the Middle East for the Jewish State were too much on target to be placed before the American people for honest examination and consideration.  George Orwell lives.  The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA), which has ruthlessly exposed the backgrounds of Blitzer and Bash, has the video of the latest version of the Hasbara Project online.  Check out the following synopsis from WRMEA:

Blitzer is a former employee of AIPAC, Israel’s behemoth Washington, DC lobby (see former Sen. James Abourezk’s “Wolf Blitzer, AIPAC, and the Saudi Peace Initiative” in the July 2007 Washington Report, p. 16, also posted on our Web site). The CNN anchor also is the author of Territory of Lies: The Exclusive Story of Jonathan Jay Pollard: The American Who Spied on His Country for Israel and How He Was Betrayed (the title seeming to imply that it was Pollard, rather than his native country, who was betrayed).

Senior congressional correspondent Bash joined CNN as Dana Schwartz, her maiden name. Her father, Stu Schwartz, is a senior broadcast producer at ABC News and her mother, Frances Weinman Schwartz, is, according to Wikipedia, “an educator in Jewish studies and author of the book, Passage to Pesach, and co-author with Rabbi Eugene Borowitz of two books, Jewish Moral Virtues and A Touch of the Sacred.” In 1998 the CNN correspondent married her first husband, Jeremy Bash, chief of staff to Leon Panetta in his capacities as both defense secretary and former CIA chief. The son of the chief rabbi of the Arlington Fairfax (VA) Jewish Congregation, Bash was chief minority council to the House Intelligence Committee when the pro-Israel Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA) was its top Democrat prior to the 2006 elections. The Bashes divorced in 2007. The following year Dana Bash married fellow CNN congressional correspondent John King, who converted to Judaism prior to their marriage.

     But we are not to worry.  There was no conspiracy to silence Corporal Thorsen on international television on January 3rd.  And there is nothing to the allegation that Jews disproportionately control major American and world media outlets.  . . .

     We return to Dr. Thomas DiLorenzo, the author of The Real Lincoln. He dissects Michael Gerson this week in print, exposing the latter for the historical ignoramus he truly is.  Di Lorenzo’s post is essential reading, as is my review of his magnum opus on Lincoln penned during the beginning of King George’s War on Terror which commenced a decade ago and continues to unfold as a tragedy with eschatological dimensions under King Barack.

     The essential point clinched by DiLorenzo is this: The pattern of Presidential duplicity, criminality, and mythologically-wrapped spin which legitimized unnecessary state-sponsored violence and war, was foundationally established by the 16th President of the United States, a pattern which was expanded in relentless application by Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt as the typological 20th century Presidents of the American Empire.   Wilson and Roosevelt, in turn, have strengthened the hand of either the 44th or 45th President of the United States in the 21st century in launching the genesis of World War III, at the behest of Benjamin Netanyahu and the cabal of central bankers and Zionist agents utilizing the American government as their personal instrument in the achievement of global conquest and the solidification of the New World Order.

     The pattern of Lincoln, Wilson, Roosevelt, Bush, and Obama has essential components and ingredients.  Chief among these are: 1) The understanding of each of these Presidents that their continuance as a Chief Executive of the United States necessitated the furtherance of the power agenda of a central banking cabal; 2) This furtherance would require the involvement of their nation in a war; 3) Hostilities would commence courtesy of a false flag incident, used to disguise the identity of the real perpetrators and their agenda;  4) The war would of necessity involve the employment of mass media in legitimizing the rationale for the conflict among the masses with a barrage of viscerally powerful images and metaphors soaked in notions of moral crusade, absolutism, the sanction of Divine Providence, blind nationalism, and religious visions containing distorted notions of Manifest Destiny, messianic fervor, and millennial fanaticism; 4) Legitimate dissent from the Crusade, rooted in sounder notions of Constitutional restraint, diplomacy, and what Jesus Christ actually teaches about the Kingdom of God, would be met with demonization, economic impoverishment, persecution, imprisonment, and death.  What worked for Lincoln in this final regard, is being arranged nicely for Obama in the form of the National  Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), as demonstrated recently by Jonathan Turley in The Guardian (UK).  Building on the foundations of the two Patriot Acts, the Military Commissions Act of 2006, the jettisoning of Posse Comitatus laws, the National Security Agency’s warrantless wiretap program, and the circumventing of the  Federal Court established by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the NDAA has formally codified George W. Bush’s observation that the Constitution of the United States is nothing but a “Goddamned piece of paper.”  Presumably the lives and liberties of American citizens, not to mention The Empire’s victims abroad, fall into the identically condemned status and subsequently fateful demise.

     Thomas DiLorenzo (“The Lincoln Myth“) and Frank Conner, author of The South Under Siege 1830-2000:  A History of Relations Between the North and the South, largely agree on the fundamental causes of the War Between the States and the agenda of Abraham Lincoln and the banking/mercantilist cadre which instigated its ignition.  Conner’s contribution is especially valuable in outlining the path of America’s 16th President in arranging for the “First Shots” at Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861, an installation on an island in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina.  As for DiLorenzo, he reminds his readers of what they are not likely to have ever been told in an American grade school, or by Michael Gerson and Wolf Blitzer, about Lincoln as the prototype for Bush and Obama and their ongoing war with Persia.  The Loyola College professor debunks the six (6) most prominent myths about the most mythologized Chief Executive in American history as follows:

Myth #1: Lincoln invaded the South to free the slaves. Ending slavery and racial injustice is not why the North invaded. As Lincoln wrote to Horace Greeley on August 22, 1862: “My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and it is not either to save or destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it . . .”

Congress announced to the world on July 22, 1861, that the purpose of the war was not “interfering with the rights or established institutions of those states” (i.e., slavery), but to preserve the Union “with the rights of the several states unimpaired.” At the time of Fort Sumter (April 12, 1861) only the seven states of the deep South had seceded. There were more slaves in the Union than out of it, and Lincoln had no plans to free any of them.

The North invaded to regain lost federal tax revenue by keeping the Union intact by force of arms. In his First Inaugural Lincoln promised to invade any state that failed to collect “the duties and imposts” and he kept his promise. On April 19, 1861, the reason Lincoln gave for his naval blockade of the Southern ports was that “the collection of the revenue cannot be effectually executed” in the states that had seceded.

Myth #2: Lincoln’s war “saved the Union.” The war may have saved the Union geographically but it destroyed it philosophically by destroying its voluntary nature. In the Articles of Confederation, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution, the states described themselves as “free and independent.” They delegated certain powers to the federal government they had created as their agent but retained sovereignty for themselves. This was widely understood in the North as well as the South in 1861. As the Brooklyn Daily Eagle editorialized on Nov. 13, 1860, the Union “depends for its continuance on the free consent and will of the sovereign people of each state, and when that consent and will is withdrawn on either part, their Union is gone. The New York Journal of Commerce concurred, writing on Jan. 12, 1861, that a coerced Union changes the nature of government from “a voluntary one, in which the people are sovereigns, to a despotism where one part of the people are slaves.” The majority of Northern newspapers agreed.

Myth #3: Lincoln championed equality and natural rights.. His words and, more importantly, his actions, repudiate this myth. “I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between the white and black races,” he announced in his Aug. 21, 1858 debate with Stephen Douglas. “I, as well as Judge Douglas, am in favor of the race to which I belong having the superior position.” And, “Free them [slaves] and make them politically and socially our equals? My own feelings will not admit of this. . . . We cannot, then, make them equals.”

In Springfield, Illinois on July17, 1858 Lincoln said, “What I would most desire would be the separation of the white and black races.” On Sept. 18, 1858 in Charleston, Illinois he said: “I will to the very last stand by the law of this state, which forbids the marrying of white people with negroes.”

Lincoln supported the Illinois Constitution, which prohibited the emigration of black people into the state, and he also supported the Illinois Black Codes which deprived the small number of free blacks in the state any semblance of citizenship. He strongly supported the Fugitive Slave Act, which compelled Northern states to capture runaway slaves and return them to their owners. In his First Inaugural he pledged his support of a proposed constitutional amendment that had just passed the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives that would have prohibited the federal government from ever having the power “to abolish or interfere, within any State, with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State.” In his First Inaugural Lincoln advocated making this amendment “express and irrevocable.”

Lincoln was also a lifelong advocate of “colonization” or shipping all black people to Africa, Central America, Haiti – anywhere but here. “I cannot make it better known than it already is, “he stated in a Dec. 1, 1862 Message to Congress, “that I strongly favor colonization.” To Lincoln blacks could be “equal,” but not in the U.S.

Myth #4: Lincoln was a defender of the Constitution. Quite the contrary: Generations of historians have labeled Lincoln a “dictator.” “Dictatorship played a decisive role in the North’s successful effort to maintain the Union by force of arms,” wrote Clinton Rossiter in Constitutional Dictatorship. And, “Lincoln’s amazing disregard for the Constitution was considered by nobody as legal.”

James G. Randall documented Lincoln’s assault on the Constitution in Constitutional Problems Under Lincoln. Lincoln unconstitutionally suspended the writ of Habeas Corpus and had the military arrest tens of thousands of Northern political opponents, including dozens of newspaper editors and owners. Some 300 newspapers were shut down and all telegraph communication was censored. Northern elections were rigged; Democratic voters were intimidated by federal soldiers; hundreds of New York City draft protesters were gunned down by federal troops; West Virginia was unconstitutionally carved out of Virginia; and the most outspoken member of the Democratic Party opposition, Congressman Clement L. Vallandigham of Ohio, was deported. Duly elected members of the Maryland legislature were imprisoned, as was the mayor of Baltimore and Congressman Henry May. The border states were systematically disarmed in violation of the Second Amendment and private property was confiscated. Lincoln’s apologists say he had “to destroy the Constitution in order to save it.”

Myth #5: Lincoln was a “great humanitarian” who had “ malice toward none.” This is inconsistent with the fact that Lincoln micromanaged the waging of war on civilians, including the burning of entire towns populated only by civilians; massive looting and plundering; rape; and the execution of civilians (See Mark Grimsley, The Hard Hand of War). Pro-Lincoln historian Lee Kennett wrote in Marching through Georgia that, had the Confederates somehow won, they would have been justified in “stringing up President Lincoln and the entire Union high command” as war criminals.

Myth #6: War was necessary to end slavery. During the 19th century dozens of countries, including the British and Spanish empires, ended slavery peacefully through compensated emancipation. Among such countries were Argentina, Colombia, Chile, all of Central America, Mexico, Bolivia, Uruguay, the French and Danish Colonies, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. (Lincoln did propose compensated emancipation for the border states, but coupled his proposal with deportation of any freed slaves. He failed to see it through, however). Only in America was war associated with emancipation.

In sum, the power of the state ultimately rests upon a series of myths about the alleged munificence of our rulers. Nothing serves this purpose better than the Lincoln myth. This should be kept in mind by all who visit the new Lincoln statue in Richmond.

     The essential connection of the dots provided by DiLorenzo with contemporary events is this:  Just as Lincoln’s war of aggression against the South had nothing to do with the moral issue of slavery, but the agenda of the Northern banking cabal, the ideology of British economic mercantilism, Henry Clay’s “American System,” and the preservation of Lincoln’s personal power, the coming war with Iran has nothing to do with any credible military threat against the United States.  It has everything to do with preserving Israel’s regional supremacy in the Middle East; forcing Iran at gunpoint to fully integrate its banking system into that of the Globalist Cabal’s; protecting the status of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency; and purloining oil and natural gas deposits and pipelines for energy consortiums.  It is inextricably linked with the money trail which bankrolls American Presidential and Congressional elections, and Establishment Corporate Media (ECM).

      Discerning readers worldwide have already concluded that the American-Israeli conflict with Iran is based on the overt aggression of the former, and being perpetrated for publicly stated reasons that are palpable falsehoods soaked in mythology and the American commitment to “democracy,” the “rule of law,” “human rights,” and the  “security of the international community.”  These convenient canards are belied by the employment of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK), the Kurdish PJAK, and the Jundallah terrorist organizations for bomb detonations and assassinations of Iranian citizens within their borders, acts of criminality etched with the fingerprints of the Israeli Mossad. Covert incitement of ethnic/tribal tensions by Western intelligence in Iranian Azerbaijan, Khuzestan, and Balochistan Provinces is a supplement to this strategy.  Violation of Iranian airspace with American drones will continue.  As Ron Paul has underscored, the economic sanctions aimed at the Iranian banking and oil sectors are additional overt acts of war.  It is also crystal clear that the American Fifth Fleet in Bahrain is being publicly touted as the ace in the hole of the War Party in an escalating war of words that may well make the Strait of Hormuz a 21st century Fort Sumter.

     And for what?  To remove the “threat” of an Iranian weaponized nuclear program, an accusation unsupported by the last American National Intelligence Estimate on this issue and the ambiguity of recent International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reports?  Even as Israel, a non-signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), sports a nuclear monopoly in the region with supplemental chemical and biological stockpiles and the area’s premier conventional military?  The smell of the putrid stench of Ahmad Chalabi, the Iraqi National Congress (INC), and their “substantiation” of Saddam Hussein’s “Weapons of Mass Destruction” is in the air.

     And for Americans who dissent from their government’s policies in the Middle East, especially in the last decade, Lincoln’s 19th century Crusade against the Constitution of the United States stands as a warning.  Chapter Six (6) of The Real Lincoln warns us that America’s 16th President launched an invasion of the South without consulting Congress, as required by the Constitution; declared martial law; blockaded Southern ports; suspended habeas corpus for the duration of his administration; imprisoned without trial thousands of Northern citizens; arrested and imprisoned newspaper editors critical of him; censored all telegraph communication; nationalized railroads; created several new States without the consent of the citizens of those States; ordered Federal troops to interfere with elections in the North by intimidating Democratic voters; deported United States Congressman Clement L. Vallandigham of Ohio for criticizing the administration’s income tax proposal at a Democratic Party rally; confiscated private property; confiscated firearms in violation of the 2nd Amendment; and eviscerated the 9th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution.

     DiLorenzo puts a 19th century historical perspective on the current vulnerability of those Americans who oppose the codification of the suspension of habeas corpus by Barack Obama and a complicit American Congress in the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA):

Secretary of State William Seward established a secret police force that made thousands of arrests on mere suspicion of ‘disloyalty,’ broadly defined as disagreement with Lincoln’s war policies.  Prisoners were not told why they were being arrested, no investigations of their alleged ‘crimes’ were carried out, and no trials were held.  There was no legal process at all, and many Northern citizens were imprisoned for such alleged infractions as ‘being a noisy secessionist,’ selling Confederate trinkets, or ‘hurrahing for Jeff Davis.’  An Episcopal minister in Alexandria, Virginia was arrested for omitting a prayer for the President of the United States in his church services as required by the Lincoln Administration.  A New Orleans man was executed by General Benjamin Butler for merely taking down a U. S. flag. [The Real Lincoln, page 138]

     And as the Loyola College professor ominously reminds us, Fort Lafayette in New York Harbor came to be known as the ‘American Bastille’ [read Guantanamo] because it housed so many political prisoners during the Lincoln Administration [more than 13,000 is the consensus among historians].

     I will say again on this day of the New Hampshire Republican Primary:  World War III is coming; it will be accompanied by a catastrophic destruction of American citizens domestically whose lives and Constitution will be eradicated forever by its ignition in an unjustifiable attack on Iran; and the not-so-hidden Hand behind it all is the government of Israel and the domestic Zionist lobby in the United States which owns the American Presidency, the Congress, the Judiciary, and the Establishment Corporate Media [ECM].

      Ron Paul:  Will you finally connect the dots and step up to home plate on this in your remaining time in this Presidential campaign, or will your equivocation and obfuscation continue?  The clock is ticking toward midnight.

      The clock is also ticking toward the ultimate irony and tragedy in human history, if the 44th President of the United States, from The Land of Lincoln and mythologically “emancipated” by the 16th President, proves to be the ultimate consummation in history of the utilization of capricious and usurped powers that destroy the Constitutional freedoms of his countrymen, even as the planet itself is engulfed in mass murder and death.  We may live to see the fateful lifting of the Seventh Seal.

The Bank Markazi Blacklist Proposal: Straight Out of the McCollum Memorandum and the FDR Playbook for War

Mark Dankof having a Texas Breakfast before assisting Saeb Sha'ath in discussing Israeli settlements on Press TV.

     Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern makes two prescient observations about the Zionist-Central Banking-War Party’s drive to incite an American-Israeli conflict with Iran, aside from the sheer insanity and immorality of the proposition itself.

     The first is that Fawning Corporate Media (FCM), as McGovern aptly tabs it, virtually never covers the real story, or gets it right.  The late William Colby told me much the same thing over 30 years ago, in greater detail.  Colby flatly stated in the late 1970s that Corporate Media is totally at the behest of the American National Security Establishment, Central Banks, and Multinational Consortiums.  Once it is understood who the Masters of Fawning Corporate Media (FCM) are, the methodology and the game plan become clearer.  Seen through these lenses, FCM’s failures in covering what the public has a right to know are no longer attributable to sheer incompetence, but to deliberate demonic design.

     Any analysis of an FCM newspaper, television show, magazine, or Internet site will reveal the basics of how the game is played.  FCM either: 1) fails to report the real story of any given day or week; 2) buries the real story without comment or explanatory context on the back page of the paper/magazine or in the filler section of a telecast; or 3) reports the real story with the prominent lead story status it deserves, but with a manipulation of the data and a false spin on what the data means, provided by news anchors, columnists, and editors, whose handsomely paid corporate salaries depend on serving as a conduit for the deliberately deceptive, proffered at the direction of The Masters.

     The Monday, August 8th, 2011 Wall Street Journal is a classic exhibit of the FCM phenomenon.  On page one, the lead stories are the economic downturn in the financial markets in the aftermath of the debt ceiling negotiation controversy, and the CH-47 Chinook helicopter shootdown in Afghanistan complete with 38 casualties.  Arguably, neither story is given its real context in the larger scheme of what is happening both in the United States and globally, but the real story is on page A10.  It is entitled, “Senators Press Obama On Iran’s Central Bank,” and is penned by Jay Solomon.

     Mr. Solomon reports that 90 members of the United States Senate (90% of the Senate) have signed a letter to President Barack Obama pressing him to sanction Iran’s central bank, with some threatening legislation to force the move, “an outcome that would represent a stark escalation in tensions between the two countries. [emphasis added]”

     The kicker is in paragraphs 2 and 3:

     “Such a measure, if effectively implemented, could freeze Iran out of the global financial system and make it nearly impossible for Tehran to clear billions of dollars in oil sales every month, said current and former U. S. officials [emphasis added].

     “Many Americans view the blacklisting of Bank Markazi as the ‘nuclear option’ in Washington’s financial war against Tehran [emphasis added].  Some Iranian leaders have said they would view such a move by the Obama Administration as an act of war. [emphasis added]”

     The unnamed Iranian leaders cited by the Wall Street Journal are correct.  It is.

     But what the paper conveniently fails to contextualize is what the entire world, including the Iranians, knows.

     Israel, the Jewish Lobby worldwide, the Central Bankers, and the energy/gas consortiums, are the driving force behind making this war happen.  Jay Solomon’s story indeed notes that Senator Mark Kirk (R., Illinois) and Senator Charles Schumer (D., New York), are the co-sponsors of the letter, in a “sign of bipartisan support for tougher financial measures against Iran.  . . .”  What the Wall Street Journal omits, of course, is that Kirk received more Israeli/Jewish PAC money for his initial election to the Senate, than any other candidate in the last election cycle, and that Schumer’s pockets have been lined historically with reams of the same levels of financial largesse for doing the bidding of the Zionist State.  We might also draw the legitimate and documentable conclusion that Kirk, Schumer, and their colleagues in both houses of Congress, demonstrate the stranglehold that Israel has on both major political parties, as demonstrated each year by Hugh Galford and Janet McMahon of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs in Washington.  The numbers provided annually by Galford and McMahon provide the quantitative proof of what President Obama told Ha’aretz in his last trip to Israel:  that Obama himself could not possibly have been elected to the U. S. Senate in Illinois (the seat now held by Kirk, by the way), or the American Presidency, without the amount of Jewish money and political support that came his way.  Presumably, the President is saying something about the larger political system and the way it works systemically.  Follow the money trail.  And the Bankers.  And the number of Israeli assets in the GOP Presidential sweepstakes (the exception is Ron Paul) who have never met a surrogate war they didn’t like, including the one on the drawing board now they will assiduously promote if The Masters should decide that Mr. Obama needs replacing in 2012 for insufficient sycophancy.

     The average American reliant on FCM for information is also operating minus other information, including all of the specifics of the lies told by Mr. Obama’s predecessor and his Neo-Conservative advisors, regarding why the United States intervened in Iraq and Afghanistan militarily, and who was really behind these ill-advised commitments of thousands of conventional forces into Central Asia.  Mr. or Mrs. Middle America has never learned about the laundry list of American physicists with Ph. D.s from the most famous scientific institutes in the world, who question the official version of what happened in New York on September 11, 2001.  Or the related implications of the cases involving the Israeli Art Students involved in spy networks in the United States before 9-11, and the Dancing Israelis arrested in New Jersey filming the burning Towers on 9-11 prior to their mysterious release by American authorities and subsequent deportation to Israel.  The name Larry Silverstein continues to go unreported in FCM in the United States, both in terms of the conditions behind his assumption of ownership of the World Trade Center (WTC) towers before 9-11, his longtime relationship with Benyamin Netanyahu and the Israeli government, or the amount of insurance profit he accrued in the aftermath of the attacks.  The name of the Israeli security company operating at Logan International Airport in Boston that day has been similarly buried to public purview and examination, along with the role of Israel’s Odigo instant messaging service on the day of the attacks.    What does it all really mean?

     Middle America has subsequently never learned the truth about the numbers of casualties in both the Iraqi and Afghan theatres of conflict, even as the truth behind the NATO intervention in Libya continues to be withheld from the public by a Fawning Corporate Media (FCM).

     And in the case of Iran, the average American knows nothing of ongoing violations of Iranian airspace by Western intelligence services, the ongoing American-Israeli-British paramilitary operations of the last decade in Iranian Azerbaijan, Diyala Province, Khuzestan Province, and Balochistan Province, not to mention targeted assassinations of scientists in Tehran clearly marked with the fingerprints of the usual players.  Mr. or Mrs. John Q. Public has similarly never heard of the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK/MKO, PMOI), the Kurdish PJAK and PKK, and Jundallah, and the criminal activities of these organizations on behalf of Israeli, American, and British Intelligence, as chronicled by Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal State Fullerton, and Philip Giraldi of the Council for the National Interest.  We may well ask, why are such activities unprovoked acts of war and state sponsored terror when allegedly undertaken by one of the adversaries of the American-Israeli nexus, but perfectly legitimate when employed by the latter?  Is it really a case of “Heads I Win, Tails You Lose?”

Pals of the Mossad and the CIA: The Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK)'s recent murder of an Iranian Scientist. Do 90 United States Senators Behind the Bank Markazi Blacklist Proposal Consider This an Act of Terrorism?

     And Mainstream America is not asking itself a most obvious question:  Why is Israel, a non-signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and armed to the teeth with nuclear bombs and the most lethal arsenal of chemical and biological weapons in the region (in violation of international law), our “ally” in isolating and attacking Iran?  By way of comparison, Iran is a signatory to the NPT, has the right in international law to enrich uranium to certain levels, and according to our own National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) is not pursuing a weaponized nuclear program.  To make matters even worse according to Philip Giraldi, one organ of FCM, the Rupert Murdoch News Corporation, has deliberately been disseminating false stories about the Iranian nuclear program courtesy of Israeli intelligence in a classic cooperative effort between a pro-Zionist international news consortium and the Jewish State’s National Security Establishment.  This of course, includes the infamous Fox News in the United States, hawking the Presidential candidacies of the Rick Perrys, Michelle Bachmanns, and Sarah Palins of the universe.

     And what if Mr. or Mrs. Middle Western or Southern American knew the truth about how Israel’s own weaponized nuclear program came into existence?  Will the Wall Street Journal inform us of the Zionist State’s intelligence operation that purloined the raw materials from the NUMEC nuclear plant in Apollo, Pennsylvania in the 1960s?  Will it even once mention the role of Israel and the late Robert Maxwell of the UK Daily Mirror in the black-ops alteration of PROMIS software by the Israeli LAKAM, which lifted American nuclear secrets and technology from the computers of the Los Alamos Nuclear Laboratory in New Mexico in coordination with the Communist Chinese?  Will we ever be told in the United States that the Mossad subsequently assassinated Maxwell at the order of Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir?  And what was the real role of the Meyer Lansky Organized Jewish Crime Syndicate in the United States in the most secretive affairs of the Jewish State, even aside from that Syndicate’s acknowledged role in providing massive funding and money laundering operations for the Haganah and Irgun in the late 1940s, along with arms running for both in conjunction with the Sonneborn Institute?  Some Hints:  1) Meyer Lansky worked for the Office of Strategic Services (OSS)[the forerunner of the CIA], and the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), in World War II; 2) As Michael Collins Piper chronicles it in Final Judgment, Lansky and his Jewish mob money, plus the brokered support of Huey Long, were the difference in the eventual nomination of Franklin Delano Roosevelt at the Democratic National Convention in 1932; 3) Meyer Lansky would become Franklin Roosevelt’s liaison to Cuban strongman, Fulgencio Batista.  This began Lansky’s massive instigation of the Jewish Crime Syndicate’s criminal empire building in Havana.

Philip Giraldi of the Council for the National Interest: Israel Spying and Technology Theft is Threatening American National Security.

     The Lansky criminal assets in Havana included Carlos Prio Soccaras, a business partner in gun running activities with one of the Lansky Syndicate’s most notorious henchman.  This latter individual had been a mechanic in the American Army Air Corps in World War II.  After World War II, this Air Corps mechanic resettled in Dallas, Texas, and became a part of gun running operations out of the Lone Star State for Israel through the Sonneborn Institute, operations supervised by an Israeli intelligence officer.  Like Lansky, he would have provable connections to the Guy Banister–Carlos Marcello network in New Orleans linked for years to the Kennedy Assassination by authors like Anthony Summers and Jim Marrs.

     The Lansky Syndicate henchman in question would later become the operator of the Carousel Club in Dallas.  He would achieve notoriety for the execution style killing of accused Kennedy assassination Lee Harvey Oswald.  His name:  Jack Rubinstein, a.k.a. Jack Ruby.  Like fellow partner in Lansky Crime Syndicate operations in Cuba, CIA and anti-Castro operative Frank Sturgis of JFK Assassination and Watergate fame, the connections of Ruby are indeed suggestive.  We learn not only from Michael Collins Piper, but from Frank Sturgis’s new biography penned by his nephew and entitled, “Warrior,” that Sturgis was also in the Army Air Corps in World War II and served on General Lucius Clay’s honor guard detail in postwar Germany.  Sturgis, began his clandestine career, however, courtesy of a Jewish girlfriend who was simultaneously sexually involved with a Colonel on Clay’s staff.  She was an operative with the Zionist Haganah, and recruited Sturgis in the late 1940s as a courier for the underground terror organization, at the same time Meyer Lansky and the Sonneborn Institute were providing the Haganah with money, arms, and international contacts.

     Taken in tandem with the knowledge we possess now about J. F. K.’s secret conflict in 1963 with David Ben Gurion over the issue of international inspection of Israel’s nuclear program at Dimona, and the Israeli Prime Minister’s relationship with Lansky, is there yet another reason why Israel continues to refuse to release Mordechai Vanunu?  Is there still concern over what Vanunu has already revealed about the nuclear program of the Jewish State, or are his statements about events in the United States in 1963 what must continue to remain in relative darkness as far as the Israeli government and intelligence community and their allies in the United States are concerned?

     I reiterate without apology what I told Iran’s Press TV last week in a discussion on Israeli settlements with Saeb Sha’ath and pro-Zionist London film producer Carol Gould.  The entire history of Israel since 1947/48 underscores the ongoingly criminal character of the Zionist enterprise, ideologically rooted in the racial supremacist doctrines of the Talmud.  That linear historical line traces from Deir Yassin and the ethnic cleansing of Palestinian Arab villages to Menachim Begin and the Irgun’s blowing up of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem.  It includes the assassinations of Lord Moyne and Swedish Count Bernadotte.  One continues through the Lavon Affair; the Kennedy Assassination; the attack on the USS Liberty by Israel in 1967; the Sabra and Shatila massacres in southern Lebanon in 1982; the PROMIS affair and the Robert Maxwell murder; the Pollard spy case, including the murder of Shabtai Kalmanovich in Moscow; the Ben-Ami spy case; the AIPAC spy case; the murder of Rachel Corrie; the utilization of white phosphorus and depleted uranium munitions in Lebanon and Gaza; the Operation Cast Lead in Gaza which killed 1400 Palestinian civilians; and the May 2010 criminal assault on the Mavi Marmara Freedom Flotilla in international waters, which are only the highlights.  It all began in earnest, however, with stealing the land of 750,000 Palestinians in a 51%-49% “deal” arranged by UN Partition in 1947.  That 49% is now down to 9% and shrinking for the Palestinians, including the obvious attempt to purloin East Jerusalem by Israeli settlers and their financiers.  But as I said on Press TV, one must contextualize all of this by reiterating the operative Zionist doctrine of “Eretz Yisrael” or Greater Israel, which stakes a claim on Jewish control of all the territories between the Nile River and the Tigris-Euphrates.  This was the vision of not only Herzl, but his predecessor as the Father of Zionism, Christian businessman and Dispensational prophecy guru William E. Blackstone of Chicago.  Blackstone foundationally established the political, economic, and military application of his Scofield Reference Bible eschatology to the facilitation of the actual creation of the State of Israel, in a way understood by few modern Zionists or Christians.  John Hagee primarily carries the water for this ongoing effort now.

     But these past criminal highlights pale in comparison to launching a preemptive military assault on Iran, or inciting the United States to do so.  The potential not only for massive loss of life but creating the genesis of World War III, is inherently obvious.

     Ray McGovern warns us that Israel may well embody the wounded animal syndrome.  Like the wounded and cornered animal who becomes irrationally ferocious in a final fight to the death, Israel’s conduct is likely to become more, not less reckless, in the days ahead.  As the days count down to what may well be the UN General Assembly’s decision to unilaterally declare a Palestinian State, and as the grip of the United States continues to loosen on its own economy and its Wars of Empire, desperation may facilitate the ultimate False Flag Incident designed to deliberately frame Iran for an event in the world which rejuvenates the comatose American public’s appetite for war in the Islamic world on behalf of Israel.  It is a dangerous period of time that now approaches.

     With this context in mind, we return full circle to the proposal of the U. S. Senate for sanctions on Iran’s Bank Markazi.  It is clear that this latest offensive has upped the ante in American-Israeli attempts to economically and politically isolate the Islamic Republic, even as black operational paramilitary actions continue to occur in conjunction with criminal terror organizations presently on the CIA-Mossad payroll in the Middle East and Central Asia.  These tactics, along with continued attempts at altering the domestic Iranian political landscape with Western intelligence funding for NGOs advocating “reform“, are intensifying even as the verdict is still out on their ultimate effectiveness.

     The historic context for what is happening now is seven decades past, in the days between October 4th, 1940 and December 7th, 1941, and the machinations of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the Oval Office.

     George T. Eggleston’s  compendium on the forces behind FDR’s war plans is but one place to turn for the beginning of the explanation of the historical context involved in what happened.  But several facts are not in doubt.  Roosevelt’s desire for provoking war with Japan was not simply to gain backdoor access for American involvement in the European war he yearned for, it was also a desire to protect the Soviet Union from a pincer attack on the part of both Germany and Japan.  The Tyler Kent case is illustrative of what was going on, and what was being systematically concealed from an unsuspecting American public both then and now.

     Roosevelt, like Barack Obama, could also read poll numbers.  The American public wanted no part of another Great War in Europe.  Thus, Roosevelt knew that he would have to lie the American public into the conflict. He manipulated events to insure that it would happen in a fashion designed to fan war fever from coast-to-coast.  And he did so while publicly assuring the masses in the Presidential election of 1940 that he would never send young American boys into harm’s way in Europe, even as the New Deal’s vaunted economic stimulus package of programs was failing to jump start the American economy out of the Great Depression.

     The Rosetta Stone, as chronicled by Robert Stinnett in Day of Deceit:  FDR and Pearl Harbor, was the McCollum Memorandum.  Lieutenant Commander Arthur McCollum was head of the Far East desk of the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI).  His code name was F-2.  He oversaw the routing of communications intelligence to FDR from early 1940 to December 7th, 1941.  Every intercepted and decoded Japanese military and diplomatic report destined for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue went through the Far East Asia section of ONI, which McCollum supervised and directed.  His office was an element of Station US, a secret American cryptographic center located at the main naval headquarters at 18th Street and Constitution Avenue, N. W., about 4 blocks from the White House.

     The McCollum Memorandum of October 7th, 1940, provided Roosevelt’s blueprint for inciting the war he fervently sought.  Point 9 of the Memorandum contained the 8 point formula for war in the Pacific sought by the President, as well as the rationale for pursuing the strategy commended by the Lieutenant Commander. From October 7th, 1940 to December 7th, 1941, Roosevelt diligently pursued them to the letter, with the endgame being the attack on Pearl Harbor.  It would not be until January 24, 1995, that Robert Stinnett would discover the Memorandum in Box 6 of a special US Navy collection in RG 38 in the Military Reference Branch of Archives II.

     McCollum’s direct unfolding of the pathway to war is bone chilling prose 70 years later.  He writes:

     “Point Nine:  It is not believed that in the present state of political opinion the United States government is capable of declaring war against Japan without more ado.  [emphasis added] . . .  Therefore, the following course of action is suggested:

     “1.  Make an arrangement with Britain for the use of British bases in the Pacific, particularly Singapore.

     “2.  Make an arrangement with Holland for the use of base facilities and acquisition of supplies in the Dutch East Indies.

     “3.  Give all possible aid to the Chinese Government of Chiang-Kai-Shek.

     “4.  Send a division of long range heavy cruisers to the Orient, Philippines, or Singapore. [emphasis added]

     “5.  Send two divisions of submarines to the Orient. [emphasis added]

     “6.  Keep the main strength of the U. S. Fleet now in the Pacific in the vicinity of the Hawaiian Islands. [emphasis added]

     “7.  Insist that the Dutch refuse to grant Japanese demands for undue economic concessions, particularly oil. [emphasis added]

     “8.  Completely embargo all U. S. Trade with Japan, in collaboration with a similar embargo imposed by the British Empire. [emphasis added]

     “Point 10:  If by these means Japan could be led to commit an overt act of war, so much the better [emphasis added].  At all events we must be fully prepared to accept the threat of war.

     “[Signed] A. H. McCollum

     Fast forward to August of 2011.  The American government continues to rhetorically threaten Iran, as does the Netanyahu-Lieberman phalanx in Israel.  Overt military preparations ranging from base acquisitions and arrangements in Central Asia to aircraft carrier task force deployments and military exercises continue.  Covert black operations inside Iran procede apace, along with the adjacent American conventional military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan.  The Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz watch for signs of overt American or Israeli naval actions.

     In an impending election year, the American economy continues to flounder courtesy of national debt, overreaching military commitments, ballooning federal budget deficits, a moribund manufacturing economy, burgeoning foreign trade deficits, fractional reserve banking, an unemployment rate close to 22%, and a dollar perhaps soon to be history as the world’s reserve currency.  No one in power has any answers, just as Roosevelt had none in 1940.  Like the political scene then, the poll numbers now indicate an American public sick of never ending wars of occupation and counter-insurgency in Central Asia, even as more Americans are beginning to sense that their government’s monolithic support of the Jewish State and its policies in Palestine is creating more enemies exponentially, and arguably the most hostile international climate faced by the United States in its entire history.  Zionist Neo-Conservative zealots criticize this turning of public opinion tide against spending 10-12 billion a month in Afghanistan, a total of 1 trillion thus far in both Iraq and Afghanistan with the meter running, and 10 billion in year in subsidizing Israel.  Thanks to an Internet technological era not seen in previous epochs in history, more Americans are finding out about the real truth of past and present.  It may be harder for the War Party to raise the curtain as effectively this time.

     But try they will.  Obama is faced with a dilemma.  He must either revitalize his sub-40% approval poll numbers and his flagging economic program with action approved by The Master Plan of His Masters, or risk replacement with a GOP mannequin more than willing to do The Masters bidding.  Bona fide American populists and a declining middle class are caught in the crossfire of the Hegelian dialectic, with options in 2012 fading and time running out.

     The next phase in this escalation by The Masters is clearly the Bank Markazi blacklist proposal being foisted upon Obama by the U. S. Senate.  But this is not the endgame.  The endgame is war.  The preferred method of starting it is to do what General George Patton advocated in post-war Europe [against the Soviet Union], to “. . .  get us a war with those sons of bitches and make it look like it was their fault.”

     Who will win this war?  Will it be the Central Bankers, the Israeli Lobby, the Multinational Energy Consortiums, and the armaments manufacturers?  Or will the American public finally wise up and reclaim their own country again?  Does the spirit of Charles Lindbergh still live?

     Who are the wild cards?  One is clearly an Iran more resilent than those who consistently misunderstand and underestimate it in the West.  Two others are China and Russia.  What will the Chinese do with American debt instruments on the open market if we undertake the most catastrophically idiotic preemptive war in history?  Will the Chinese and the Russians merely standby militarily?  How does the larger Islamic world react to these events as they continue to reach a climax?

     One thing is clear.  Israel needs a diversionary event to refocus attention away from Gaza, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem, while jump starting their flagging domestic political support in Europe and the United States.  The American government needs one to jump start domestic support for their Imperial Wars and to divert attention from an economy in free fall.  It is Winner-Take-All for the Central Banks and the Federal Reserve.

     The creation of an external enemy, followed by a manufactured incident with The Masters behind the curtain, is one of the oldest tricks of the trade in history.  When you hear a new version of Remember Pearl Harbor playing on the radio after an American-Israeli war with Iran commences, either before November of 2012 or after a Presidential inauguration in 2013, remember the warning you are reading this day.

     As for the American people, if they want a real war the enemy is not Iran and the Iranian people.  If there is a fight worth fighting, it is in reclaiming our nation’s political, cultural, and economic landscape from the same sorts of thieves who have been robbing Palestinians blind since 1948.  They have been robbing Americans of their Old Republic throughout the 20th century, with nary a domestic uprising.

     Will The Masters pull it off again?

Memorial Day from San Antonio: The Final Resting Place of Marquis J. McCants and the Death of the American Republic

     For my readers and broadcast listeners worldwide:
 
     I was in attendance on February 27th, 2011 at the Chapel of the Four Chaplains award ceremony in San Antonio, Texas, where the presentation involved two (2) mainline clergyman, a lady Jewish rabbi serving as a Captain in the United States Air Force, an African-American United States Air Force chaplain/retired, and the United States Army’s chief official for personally notifying family members at Fort Sam Houston/San Antonio of more American casualties in what was Mr. Bush’s War, and is now Mr. Obama’s War
 
     Since I was asked by several people about my views on the war after the end of the Chapel of the Four Chaplains event in San Antonio, let me be absolutely clear that my 2007 essay on the death of Army Specialist Marquis J. McCants remains definitive in articulating what I feel about the American military’s War for Empire in the Middle East.  Since that time, the tragedies of thousands of additional deaths, the Gaza and Mavi Marmara debacles, the deepening quagmire in Afghanistan, and a running money meter on the Iraq/Afghanistan conflicts which has now arrived at $1 trillion dollars and counting, simply underscore why I wrote what I did in 2007.
 
     In this 2007 essay, I warned of the False Flag Incident of the Century.  I sound that warning again in early 2011.  Israel’s machinations for preemptive war with Iran have reached new heights and depths with their employment of the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK) to undertake a series of terrorist actions in that country, which includes the internationally publicized cases of the assassinations of Iranian scientists in the last two years, and other acts of violence in Tehran, and Azerbaijan/Diyala/and Balochistan Provinces.
 
     The recent spread of revolutionary fervor throughout the Middle East, chiefly aimed at sleazy regimes in league with Israel and its Neo-Conservative agents for war in the American National Security Establishment, now combines with flagging domestic American political support for the War for Empire and Eretz Yisrael.  While these developments are essentially positive, they have ominously created a level of desperation among the denizens of the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI) and its lapdogs in the American government and media, which may lead these servants of the Hidden Hand to a new and terrifying level of employment of the unthinkable to achieve their diabolical objectives.
 
     Mark my words.  Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s McCollum Memorandum of October 1940 is now underway again in this new historical and political context of the 21st century.
 
     Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul Republicans must unite as never before in exposing and opposing this great evil, which threatens the American Republic and our Constitution, even as it threatens the innocent around the planet.

Marquis J. McCants: Killed in Iraq in 2007, but the War for Empire Continues Apace

 

 Memorial Day Weekend

May 2007

      It has been a sultry, oppressively humid day on this Saturday morning of Memorial Day weekend. The overcast character of the south Texas sky seems to be a precursor of violent thunderstorms and threateningly high winds.

     The physical conditions in the Alamo City suggestively match the spiritual pallor which seems to enshroud Military City U. S. A. There is a lurking threat of ongoing death and tragedy here, matched only by the reticence of most of the denizens of the American military’s leading domestic metropolis to speak of it openly. The silence breaks the sound barrier.

     Its grim implications are everywhere evident: there are far fewer Bush-Cheney 2004 and United We Stand bumper stickers on vehicles transversing the construction-riddled major highways. There is a painful irony in Star Spangled Banner-laced store advertisements reminding people that Memorial Day is a special time to remember the sacrifice of the men and women of the Armed Forces of the United States who lie still beneath the ground’s green, manicured surface at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery. After all, San Antonio seems to be a city in transition. It now seems less an American city, more of a Mexican one. The Communist Chinese now occupy a sector of what was Kelly Air Force Base on the Southside. And the Trans-Texas Project (TTP), part of the globalist schema to enact a North American Union and the subsequent end of the United States as a sovereign nation-state, will come roaring right through San Antonio’s famed I-35 corridor from the west coast of Mexico on its way to Austin, Dallas, Kansas City, Duluth, and Canada. Something is clearly wrong.

     Change, death, and tragedy came to San Antonio in another palpable way on this 2007 Memorial Day weekend. At Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery, they laid to final rest a young African-American man from the Alamo City named Army Specialist Marquis J. McCants. He was killed by an IED explosion and accompanying small arms fire in Iraq last week. McCants, known to family members and friends as “Marq,” was 23 years old. He left behind grieving parents, a wife, and 3 children. His death was the 28th suffered since March of 2003 by a silently sorrowful pro-military constituency in what was once one of America’s proudest cities. His uncle, Pastor Elder McCants of Holy Cross Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod) on San Antonio’s Southside, is one of the community’s most precious gifts in pastoral ministry.

     Marquis McCants represents a disturbingly familiar profile to those who have studied the personal histories and demographics represented by the most obvious victims of Mr. Bush’s war in Iraq. He is an African-American, who after graduation from O’Connor High School in San Antonio, discovered the impossibility of supporting a wife and 3 children on a salary generated by a service-economy job at Sam’s Club. Enlistment in the U. S. Army seemed to be a viable alternative. When he enlisted, Marq chose advanced training as a combat medic assigned to airborne duty with the famed 82nd Airborne Division. He is reported to have explained this choice at the time by saying, “I want to be able to save my friends.”

     Reaction to his death in Babylon has been swift, especially from the Army Specialist’s father, Savage McCants. The latter is notably a retired United States Air Force master sergeant with 25 years of active-duty service. His remarks to the San Antonio Express News this week have shattered the local conspiracy of silence about Mr. Bush and the Iraqi quagmire in a way which may be suggestive of things to come, both in the Alamo City and nationally.

     “As far as I’m concerned, this war is a personal agenda for the president,” said the senior McCants. “I never did agree with the war. We’re not winning anything. We have no real mission over there. The only thing that’s keeping me from losing my mind over this is my faith in God.”

     Savage McCants is correct. The United States is losing this needless war of counter-insurgency in the Middle East and Central Asia. There is no purposeful mission which meets the Constitutional and America-First litmus test for military conflict. American intelligence reports claiming the possession of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) by Saddam Hussein, utilized by Mr. Bush and his errand boy, Colin Powell, to generate domestic public support for an attack on Iraq, have been shown to be provably fraudulent. Mr. Bush, who recently described the Constitution of the United States as a “goddamn piece of paper,” managed to prove his point in March of 2003 by failing to procure a Congressional Declaration of War before launching the nation into the mindless abyss.

     The results are as tangible as they are catastrophic: 650,000 Iraqi civilians are dead, according to the British Lancet medical journal report. 3400-plus Americans have lost their lives. King George’s $50 billion dollar war has suddenly metastasized to $500 billion with no end in sight. Iraq is now a cesspool of unending conflict between Sunnis, Shiites, and Kurds. The political blowback against the United States throughout the Islamic world is overwhelming.

     The winds of a wider war with Iran are blowing ominously across the frozen tundra of the international landscape. Savage McCants is mistaken in one significant respect. The war, prosecuted by an out-of-control Chief Executive of the United States, and acquiesced in by a comatose Legislative Branch on Capitol Hill, is not simply the pursuit of Mr. Bush’s personal agenda fueled by a demonically driven psychosis. It is, in the words of Lt. General William Odom, the greatest strategic and tactical military blunder in the storied history of an American Republic turned Empire.

     Compounding the horror, the deceived and the bereaved must now face another tortuous truth: the driving force behind this war is the government of Israel, the Israeli Lobby, and the forces both entities control within the American Establishment. This includes the government of the United States, Corporate Media, the National Security Leviathan, and the educational institutions funded and administered by the Central State.

     That this is the case is not seriously in question. Commentators as diverse as Justin Raimondo of Antiwar.com, Michael Collins Piper of the American Free Press, Dr. Stephen Sniegoski of The Last Ditch, John Pilger, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote, and James Petras, have repeatedly shown the Zionist State’s direct connection to Jewish neo-conservatives bearing direct responsibility for planning and directing the disaster at hand. Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, David Wurmser, and Richard Perle are but the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The sinister trail of connections leads to the Project for a New American Century paper trail of the late 1990s, and the present calamity of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) spy plot designed to purloin American intelligence secrets pertaining to Iran. Add to this the public statements of a laundry list of Israeli governmental and intelligence officials on the subject in The Tribe’s own media, principally The Jerusalem Post and Ha’aretz, and the outline of the truth becomes unmistakable: The armed forces of the United States have become a surrogate janissary force for Zionist and multinational corporate interests in the Middle East. Period. End of story.

     Mr. Bush, properly perceived, merely becomes one of a series of front-men in this cynical conspiracy and end-game. In this regard, he is joined by the puppets of both major American political parties, the Zionist-controlled American media talking chieftains, and international central bankers. It is not an accident that the consequence is an America which increasingly resembles the society of its Masters in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, both in the development of a domestic police state apparatus, and an increasingly militant foreign policy based in the jettisoning of reasonable diplomacy and an accompanying first-resort employment of military coercion and covert operations in the subterranean world.

     Mr. Bush’s War for American Empire and Jewish Hegemony has killed more than fine young men like Marquis J. McCants. The legacy of Washington, Madison, and Jefferson also lies buried somewhere beneath the green lawns of sacred, tree-lined sanctuaries like Fort Sam Houston and Arlington National Cemeteries.

     No sane and intellectually honest analysis can conclude that they live, in an age where the President’s pen strokes have authorized a first-use of nuclear weapons against Iran (National Security Presidential Directive 35 in support of CONPLAN 8022); the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus; the ongoing use of warrantless surveillance and black-bag operations against American citizens within the continental United States; and a Presidential usurpation of powers that enables Mr. Bush to declare a State of Emergency anytime he desires, without the consent and review of Congress, and for a duration of time to be determined by the President alone (see the May 9th National Security Presidential 51, also known as Homeland Security Presidential Directive 20).

     One presumes that Israeli citizen and intelligence asset, American Homeland Security Director Michael Chertoff, approves. The May 9th Executive Order makes him Mr. Bush’s point-man in the administration of the coming American Police State. Stay tuned. The False-Flag Incident of the Century may be lurking just around the corner.

     In the meantime, may the loss of Army Specialist Marquis J. McCants and his compatriots draw us closer to God and His Son in the midst of unspeakable grief on this especially poignant and dreadful Memorial Day. And may their absence drive us to a renewed pledge to reclaim this country from the despots and moneychangers who have pilfered it, even as the clock toward apocalyptic disaster continues to count down to the final gun signaling the end of history and the physical cosmos itself.
