“Mark Dankof’s America” Joins Mark Glenn, Paul Sheldon Foote, and Chuck Carlson

The Liberty Hour Podcast, the creation of long-time political activist Mark Glenn, and USS Liberty survivor Phil Tourney, announces the addition of Mark Dankof’s America to the new network’s offerings.  Initially, the show will air once-weekly, with each production being two hours in length.
 
Mark Dankof , long-time host of Mark Dankof’s America on the Republic Broadcasting Network (RBN), made the decision to move his show to the new network.  A past member of the Pat Buchanan wing of the Republican Party, he became the Constitution Party’s insurgent candidate in the 2000 U. S. Senate race in Delaware, opposing Thomas Carper and William Roth.  A Lutheran clergyman, he presently serves as pastor of San Antonio’s Immanuel Lutheran Church.  He is an endowed member of the National Rifle Association, and a life member of the Texas State Rifle Association.  He was once tabbed by the late neo-conservative Republican Congressman, Jack Kemp, as The Rubber Ball of the American Right.
 
The move by Dankof to the Liberty Hour Podcast, is accompanied by his addition to the show of two co-hosts, Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote, and long-time anti-Zionist activist and Christian pastor, Chuck Carlson.
 
Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote is a professor of accounting at Cal State Fullerton, a Vietnam veteran, and acknowledged Middle Eastern expert as a past independent contractor for the American Embassy in Tehran in the 1970s.  He is a member of Academics for Ron Paul.  Dr. Foote’s web sites include Traitors USA and offerings on You Tube.
 
Dankof and Foote have teamed up before on radio, with the former interviewing the latter on the Mujahedin-E-Khalq (MeK/MKO), the “Islamic-Marxist” terror organization which originated with leftist university students in Tehran in 1965.  That initial production worldwide may be accessed on the World Wide Web through the auspices of The Nejat Society and Iran-Interlink.  Dr. Foote’s research on the Mek/MKO has also been chronicled on the Iran-based Habilian Association web site.
 
Chuck Carlson is the long-time print and electronic voice of We Hold These Truths, the venerable news and analysis agency for Christians and Protestant Evangelicals in opposition to the teachings and political slant of Christian Zionism.  Carlson’s sponsorship of Project Strait Gate Vigils in front of Christian Zionist churches around the nation, including John Hagee’s Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, has drawn attention to the controversial political activities of the Christian Zionist movement in America, including Hagee’s “Christians United for Israel” (CUFI).  As for the Liberty Hour Podcast, Carlson has already served as a guest for Mark Glenn and Phil Tourney on December 17th, 2009, in a show entitled, “The End of Christian Zionism, Or Just a Facelift?
 
Mark Dankof’s America represents Mark Dankof’s first team effort in radio news hosting.  He explains his choice of both Paul Sheldon Foote and Chuck Carlson as co-hosts, as a strategic move.
 
Basically“, says The Rubber Ball of the American Right, “Dr. Foote represents a goldmine for me–and my listeners—in radio news broadcasting.  Dr. Foote is an academic par excellence, a combat veteran, a Middle Eastern and Iran expert, and a first-rate radio presence on the air.  He also shares my conviction, and that of the Buchanan-Paul wing of the American conservative movement, that pro-Zionist, Israeli-lobby advocacy has hijacked our movement and our country.  He believes, as I do, that Neo-Conservative ideology threatens our national sovereignty, our foreign policy, our economy, and our Constitutional freedoms at home.  He is simply, to put it mildly, a national treasure.”
 
As for Chuck Carlson, he is the leading voice of Protestant Christianity in America in registering principled, articulate, Biblically-based opposition to the dangerous heresy of Christian Zionism.  We Hold These Truths has been demonstrating the heinous consequences of American foreign policy in Palestine, Gaza, Mesopotamia, Persia, and Afghanistan, even as it has alerted the Confessing Church to the domestic dangers inherent in an unthinking alliance with the Israeli Lobby.” 
 
I will be assisting Pastor Carlson with a film media project scheduled to open new doors for all of us with international television outlets in the Middle East and around the world.  The sky is the limit, for both our print and radio broadcast outreach, in the days aheadI suspect we will be doing some globetrotting in the next two years, as events warrant.”
 
The show will be available once a week on Thursday evenings, beginning January 28th.  Each pre-recorded show is of two hours duration, covering the spectrum of subjects with selected guests to be regularly featured and announced.  The show is scheduled to expand in weekly offerings, in the coming year.
 
Mark Glenn and Victor Thorn are the co-authors of a new book on Israel’s deliberate attack upon the USS Liberty on June 8th, 1967.  It is entitled, “Ship Without a Country.”

Mark Dankof on Blessings in the Midst of Enshrouding Darkness

     As we close out 2009, I reflect upon God’s richest blessings to me, in spite of the dark developments that continue to enshroud our nation and the world.  The dark developments clearly continue to involve the machinations of both the Israeli Lobby and the War Machine of the American Empire in pressing for an expansion of the evil madness presently being perpetrated in Palestine, Mesopotamia, and Afghanistan.  The economy continues to tank; our Constitutional liberties continue to evaporate.

     My blessings are also clear, and too numerous to mention in any comprehensive way.  But I especially mention my family; my closest friends in the Patriot and Constitutional movements in America; my international friends garnered over a period of decades; and the denizens of Immanuel Lutheran Church  in San Antonio, who have ministered to me in unspeakably powerful ways, even as I have attempted to minister to them as a pastor.

     I am voluntarily leaving the Republic Broadcasting Network (RBN), without rancor or regret.  I will be involved in a new broadcasting endeavor in the coming year that involves a new Network launched by my close friends, Mark Glenn and Phil Tourney.  I have invited Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote to join me on my show on a regular basis.  More on all of this later.

     Finally, many of you write or call me from around the world with disheartening news of varying topics and descriptions.  Some ask me to articulate what I continue to believe in during these blackened days of exponentially increasing evil and demonic manifestation.  The reassuring truths I offer you are not my own, but those of the Lord of the Confessing Church, the true Israel of God, as expressed in the words of the Athanasian Creed of millennia ago.  Read them, and believe them.  Do not deny these truths, but affirm them as all of us approach another New Year.

Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the catholic faith. Which faith except everyone do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly. And the catholic faith is this, that we worship one God in Trinity and Trinity in Unity. Neither confounding the Persons nor dividing the Substance. For there is one Person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost. But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost is all one: the glory equal, the majesty coeternal. Such as the Father is, such is the Son, and such is the Holy Ghost. The Father uncreate, the Son uncreate, and the Holy Ghost uncreate. The Father incomprehensible, the Son incomprehensible, and the Holy Ghost incomprehensible. The Father eternal, the Son eternal, and the Holy Ghost eternal. And yet they are not three Eternals, but one Eternal. As there are not three Uncreated nor three Incomprehensibles, but one Uncreated and one Incomprehensible. So likewise the Father is almighty, the Son almighty, and the Holy Ghost almighty. And yet they are not three Almighties, but one Almighty. So the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God. And yet they are not three Gods, but one God. So likewise the Father is Lord, the Son Lord, and the Holy Ghost Lord. And yet not three Lords, but one Lord. For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity to acknowledge every Person by Himself to be God and Lord, So are we forbidden by the catholic religion to say, There be three Gods or three Lords. The Father is made of none, neither created nor begotten. The Son is of the Father alone, not made nor created, but begotten. The Holy Ghost is of the Father and of the Son, neither made nor created nor begotten, but proceeding. So there is one Father, not three Fathers; one Son, not three Sons; one Holy Ghost, not three Holy Ghosts. And in this Trinity none is before or after other; none is greater or less than another; But the whole three Persons are coeternal together and coequal, so that in all things, as is aforesaid, the Unity in Trinity and the Trinity in Unity is to be worshiped. He, therefore, that will be saved must thus think of the Trinity. Furthermore, it is necessary to everlasting salvation that he also believe faithfully the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ. For the right faith is that we believe and confess that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is God and Man; God of the Substance of the Father, begotten before the worlds; and Man of the substance of His mother, born in the world; Perfect God and perfect Man, of a reasonable soul and human flesh subsisting. Equal to the Father as touching His Godhead and inferior to the Father as touching His manhood. Who, although He be God and Man, yet He is not two, but one Christ: One, not by conversion of the Godhead into flesh, but by taking the manhood into God; One altogether; not by confusion of Substance, but by unity of Person. For as the reasonable soul and flesh is one man, so God and Man is one Christ; Who suffered for our salvation; descended into hell; rose again the third day from the dead; He ascended into heaven; He sitteth on the right hand of the Father, God Almighty; from whence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. At whose coming all men shall rise again with their bodies and shall give an account of their own works. And they that have done good shall go into life everlasting; and they that have done evil, into everlasting fire. This is the catholic faith; which except a man believe faithfully and firmly, he cannot be saved.
