Mark Dankof Salutes Herman Otten: There Was a Time When Giants Walked the Earth

The Theological Credo of the Lutheran Reformation and Herman Otten of Christian News

      My longtime friend in the Confessionally Lutheran Faith and fellow journalist, Herman Otten of Christian News, has gone to be with the Lord Jesus Christ in eternity as of two days ago, April 24th, 2019.  Love Him or Hate Him, count me as one always in Herman’s corner in life when we first occasionally began working together over decades.  His place in Lutheran history and in the history of cutting edge Alternative Media in a pre-technological/pre-Internet era is absolutely guaranteed, regardless of what one would say about him now.  As for his considerable number of enemies, Otten loved publishing their original works of trash with complete glee and sarcastic wit.  Two items of hilarity for him in the current media would have been the tragi-comedic posts of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency entitled “A Chicago Space for LGBTQ Jews Becomes a ‘Queer Jeshiva for Everybody’,” and the Russia Today post on Sonalee Rashatwar entitled “‘Fat Sex Therapist’ Compares Fitness to Nazism, Dieting to Rape.” Herman would have noted editorially that Sonalee’s Seminar was delivered at St. Olaf’s “Lutheran” College in Minnesota.

Otten: “We Need a Stick-it-in-His-Ribs Rebuttal.  Call San Antonio.”

     At the same time, he loved me on the radio and quietly followed my pathway there.  Herman likely missed my On-The-Air work this past week.  He’s listening now from Above. And making notes.  . . . He is probably also viewing the You Tube video of highlights of his life and his family’s ministry to him in his final days of this temporal existence, put together by his son Tim.

Herman Otten Loved This Meme of Israel’s “Christian” Bitch-in-Chief.

     The evidence of his personality and journalistic omnipresence is everywhere, ranging from the Lutheran Logia journal which gives him a qualified Thumbs-Up to liberal Matthew Becker of Valparaiso University and Day Star, which gives him an unqualified Thumbs-Down.  The latter was finally removed from the clergy roster of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod after a lengthy investigation which would never have occurred had the bureaucracy of that Synod not been hounded by the public exposure of Becker’s views over a very long period of time by–you guessed it–Herman Otten.

Lutheran Pastor Mark Dankof and Reformed Baptist Pastor Dale Crowley, Jr. both named on the Christian News roster of “Soldiers of the Cross.”

     An additional 1992 read which underscores his pivotal role as a watchdog of Missouri Synod machinations and Synodical Presidential elections over decades can be accessed as well, courtesy of a Chicago Tribune repost from Victor Volland of the St. Louis Post Dispatch. It is entitled, “Lutheran Journalist Plays Role of Spoiler.”  This sample is but a microcosm of his role as Editor of Christian News since 1962.  Another is the essay of Robert Benne, Director of the Center on Religion and Society at Roanoke College for Richard John Neuhaus’s First Things, entitled “The Trials of American Lutheranism.” While Dr. Benne’s ideological bias is revealed in his fine article, it does illustrate what James Adams, Religion Editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch wrote in his pivotal work, “Preus of Missouri and the Great Civil War” about the role of Herman Otten and Christian News in bringing down John Tietjen and a majority liberal faculty at Concordia Seminary in February of 1974.  Adams correctly observed that when historians would chronicle the ugliness of that Civil War over decades, the pivotal role of Otten in making it happen would be forever remembered.

    Another brief and poignant remembrance of the great man I have always thought of as the H. L. Mencken of Christian Journalism has just been posted on April 25th by Dr./Pastor Karl Fabriziius of Gottesdienst:  The Journal of Lutheran Liturgy.  It is entitled “Remembering Herman Otten.” It is yet another reminder of the place of Herman Otten and Christian News in the annals of American Lutheran history.

     As far as Richard John Neuhaus and First Things go, Christian News reported the truth:  Neuhaus had received $8.5 million dollars in contributions from Jewish Neo-Conservative sources for his long-time service to the State of Israel and Zionist Wars.  It wasn’t all about Hagee, Robertson, and Falwell.  The Synagogue of Satan had also skillfully covered its bets with a Lutheran turned Roman Catholic, who knew how to keep his printing press going and with great Mainstream Media reviews.

     Herman knew too much and was willing to speak and write about what he really thought.  People in power feared him, as he could not be compromised or purchased because of his faith and his commitment to a bedrock subscription to the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions. Because of this, he would be the target of relentless ad hominem attacks and demonization for decades. Each punch thrown his way was met by his shifty footwork and public journalistic counterpunch.  He instinctively understood that the world was both a cruel place to an honest man, and not the final stop, but only a fleeting transition for a brief moment to the blessed home in eternity awaiting the Christian believer.  What remains forever unfathomable is that he was simultaneously an effective parish pastor over the same period of temporal time, and had the absolute support of wife Grace, his kids, and his grandchildren in everything he was doing at the Lord’s behest.  Otten’s personal call to a ministry of Word and Sacrament proclaimed in his pulpit each Sunday was also his personal call to combat on the other 6 days of the week what he saw as an insidious threat to Biblical orthodoxy, culture, and morality via his pen and typewriter.  In his “spare” time, he participated for years in triathlons.

Otten to Dankof:  “Are You Keeping Your Bedside Devotions Active Every Night?”

     My conversations with the legendary Editor of Christian News over decades all began flooding back to me the day after his passing in New Haven.  I’ll relate the last one we had in 2015 that involved an incredibly serious matter involving Yours Truly with the ability to laugh with Herman about it later.

     Bottom line:  I almost had to legitimately shoot a man to death beating a woman in my apartment complex parking lot in San Antonio on Columbus Day that year.  My account of this may be accessed here.  I told my long-time friend about the details you may now read about.

     I was explaining to the good Pastor and Editor about my choice of firearm, the particular load in the magazine and chamber, and the Combat Handgunning technique of the Defensive Two-Tap to the upper torso (“Bang, Bang” best enacted with a semi-automatic and two lightning squeezes of the trigger, not jerking). I did so only because he was asking all the questions about the particulars. Herman then spoke of a theoretical headline only Otten could come up with instantly for Page One had I actually been forced to use the weapon: “Christian News Exclusive: Dankof’s Defensive Two-Tap and Walther’s ‘Proper Distinction Between Law and Gospel.'”

     For those who follow me now on Press TV/Iran, National Bugle Radio on RBN, Duke on Rense Radio Live, the American Free Press, Don Wassall’s Nationalist Times, Russia Insider, Russia Faith, Russia News Now, the Andrew Carrington Hitchcock Show in the UK, Al Ansaar Radio, CII International Radio of Johannesburg/Durban, Culture Wars, Dankof with Jonas E. Alexis of Veterans Today, BATR/SARTRE, and countless other places in the last two decades, history will reveal that I was originally elevated to my level of visibility in the last 19 years by two things.  One was my run for the U. S. Senate in 2000 in Delaware against William Roth and Tom Carper as the nominated delegate of the Constitution Party.  Even more importantly, my foray into Alternative Media for the Old Right was launched by my book review for Herman Otten and Christian News that made it into the 9-11 Commemorative Issue only days after September 11th, 2001.  The book reviewed was Gordon Thomas’s Gideon’s Spies:  The Secret History of the Mossad. Mr. Thomas himself contacted me from Ireland after seeing it.  That would have been impossible in a pre-Internet age.

Otten08

The Post 9-11 launch of Mark Dankof into Alt Right Action was because of Herman Otten of Christian News on September 17th, 2001.  The Fallout from that Book Review continues to this day.

     I had occasionally contributed to Christian News since the late 1980s, but the Thomas book review published after 9-11 changed the course of my life.  I could never have foreseen any of this, but on occasion Herman published a handful of items under my byline that bear special reiteration:  My memorial to the great Pastor Dale Crowley, Jr. was one of them.  My interview with Howard Phillips for Christian News was subsequently run by World Net Daily in its entirety.  My Page One interview with Dr. James Montgomery Boice is no longer online anywhere, but Christian News Encyclopedia will have it. My tribute to my academic advisor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Dr. Harold O. J. Brown, was another Otten editorial publish that also made it into wider evangelical circles that found him too tough on the Bad Guys in their midst otherwise.  I am informed that the TEDS faculty actually posted the Christian News original in the faculty lounge after the Brown death for a period of days.  I found this amusing:  The implication was that Dankof had written a terrific tribute to Joe Brown, but having Trinity students encountering both Dankof and Herman Otten in print with reference to the seminary was a potentially inflammatory risk.  For the record:  Harold O. J. Brown loved Christian News.  He read every issue.  I made sure he made it when he preceded Pastor Otten in the Kingdom of God.

     These lovable Protestant Evangelicals could not quite handle the Otten style of sardonic-to-the-point-of-inflicted anguish humor always brandished when absolutely warranted.  A classic example of this was the “prophetic vision” of Montanist Charismatic Guru Jamie Buckingham in the late 1980s.  It related to Buckingham’s direct unmediated message from the Holy Spirit to the former that Jamie would receive a Supernatural Healing and Deliverance to Claim and Proclaim from the sad case of cancer affliction he had encountered.  Charisma magazine and other Montanist outlets were playing it up big at the time and using it to sell other Charismatic Montanists on the idea of simply naming and claiming their physical deliverance from dreaded disases and suffering by clinging to Jamie’s received revelation. Only Herman Otten had the guts at the time to publish the dangers to Christians of accepting such transparent and heretical nonsense at face value from these self-anointed Evangelical Superstars.

The Flag of Israel-First Evangelicals, Capitol Hill, the ADL, the SPLC, Aryeh Tuchman of J-Hate, Joe Biden, and LGBTQ. Herman Otten was their Eternal Adversary.

     Jamie Buckingham sadly died 3 years later.  Christian News published the news story on his passing and obituary, alongside what Charisma had published some 36 months before on his Supernatural Healing of Deliverance to Claim and Proclaim message courtesy of the Holy Spirit’s person-to-person call that Buckingham asked everyone to believe actually transpired.  There was no editorial comment from Herman Otten.

Otten Answers the ADL Chief On The Line:  “Don’t Like Dankof’s Last Op-Ed?  His Dog is More Well Read Than You Are, You Jerk.”

     Message:  Only Christian News will remind people of the entire context of this sad story.  Christian News isn’t making light of a man’s illness, suffering, and death.  But false teaching and a heretical Montanism being passed off as Biblical doctrine and praxis has to be held accountable to the truth.  Buckingham was a heretic.  Everybody else is tap-dancing around this.  We Won’t.  We Never Will.

Mark Dankof on The Monica Witt USAF/OSI Spy Defection Case and Marzieh Hashemi of Press TV/Iran

CultureWarsNewNewWorldOrder

Gareth Porter at the New Horizons Conference in Iran with Marzieh Hashemi of Press TV in 2014. Hashemi and New Horizon NGO are now fingered in the Monica Witt Spy Case.

 

     One has to be oblivious to international and national news stories not to be aware of the breaking Monica Witt spy/treason/defection case involving this young lady Texan in the United States Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations (OSI).  News agencies are reporting en masse that “Individual A” in the 27 page Federal Grand Jury Indictment in United States District Court is thought to be Marzieh Hashemi, the Press TV News Anchor in Tehran.

     Hashemi is the former Melanie Franklin of New Orleans and still an American citizen.  When she was recently arrested in St. Louis at the airport and subsequently detained without charges in Washington, D. C., I and others wrote honest op-eds in defense of her work as a journalist.  Mine may be accessed on this very website.  It will remain there.

     Nonetheless, articles emerging in places like Clearance Jobs prove increasingly damning to both Witt and Hashemi.  The case for espionage and treason by two American citizens on behalf of a foreign power seems powerful.  I have read the entire 27 page Grand Jury indictment with an eye on the media reports.  None of it is good.  All of this will soon be discussed publicly on National Bugle Radio on the Republic Broadcasting Network with host Dr. Patrick Slattery.

     The New Horizon NGO of Iran is also under the official sanction of the U. S. Treasury Department as having been a willing front in this espionage/treason affair aimed at the United States.

     This is especially interesting to me, given the multiple invitations issued to me by this organization in years past for journalistic conferences in Tehran, including the time Monica Witt was in attendance in 2012.  But the Iranian government always managed to never issue me a visa, despite the fact that all of the official paperwork was submitted on time.

     I chalked this up to the fact that my status as a member of the NRA and a critic of  the Marxist-oriented Black Lives Matter, an organization Marzieh Hashemi has been working closely with, didn’t fit what the New Horizon Conference organizer, Reza Montazemi, was aiming for.  I also suspected my late Father’s past as an Air Force logistics advisor in Iran for the Shah’s Air Force in the last 5 years of the Pahlavi regime might have made the Iranian government suspicious of my own possible links to American intelligence.

     But 2014 confirmed that it went way beyond that, with the catastrophic public relations nightmare that befell Iran and the New Horizons NGO in the so-called Gareth Porter/BuzzFeed/New Horizons/Reza Montazami debacle.  Dr. E. Michael Jones of Culture Wars wrote the real inside story on that insidious mess in the December 2014 issue.  It was all stripped bare for all to behold in the cover story, entitled The New New World Order.  Yes, that’s Marzieh Hashemi, a.k.a. Melanie Franklin on the cover with Gareth Porter, whose own nefarious role over 4 years ago in Tehran is completely exposed in Culture Wars.

     Marzieh Hashemi took personal charge of making assurances to me that my visa wouldn’t fall through the cracks again in 2014, as it had repeatedly for a series of years in the past.  But it didn’t happen.  And she disappeared without a subsequent trace or apology to me.

     Nonetheless, I can understand how she was caught up in things that year that went well beyond her authority or ability to make right.

     [I can also understand why Reza Montazemi of New Horizon NGO stopped talking to me after a 2014 conference call he set up with Mark Glenn and Mark Dankof with Ken O’Keefe as intermediary with video and sound.  Montazemi later brought Mark Glenn to Tehran in an attempt at reconciliation.  E. Michael Jones later made it after the Culture Wars cover story he penned on the Gareth Porter/BuzzFeed/New Horizon/Reza Montazemi incident.  I never did.  I must confess what I told Montazemi to his Skype video face in that conversation, albeit true, did not comport well with being a Lutheran pastor (smile).  But he knew I was finished with him, and subsequently he with me.]

hashemi02

Free Speech Advocate or IRI intelligence operative in the Monica Witt Spy Case.  Is Marzieh “Individual A?”

     But in 2019, allegedly being involved as an American citizen as a knowing operational liaison between Islamic Republic of Iran intelligence and an American USAF/OSI technical sergeant from Texas bent on betraying her country and her oaths, Marzieh Hashemi has lost all credibility with me as a human being and an independent journalist and activist. Her dropping of all communication with me after the Gareth Porter/BuzzFeed/New Horizons/Reza Montazemi circus of late 2014 takes on new meaning with what continues emerging in the Monica Witt spy affair.

     I want to make it clear that I am proud of my past appearances on Press TV, and the things I and other honest American journalists have been allowed to bring forth globally there over the past decade on the New World Order, Zionism, and the hijacking of the American government by the Israeli government and its Lobby in the United States.  I do not apologize for any of it.  But much as I am sickened by the sellout of the people of the United States by who it is that controls the globalist American political elite enamored of fiat money; wars for Israel; false flag operations; and illegitimate aggression against Iran, Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Palestine, Libya, and Venezuela among others, I cannot endorse work in a journalistic context with people involved in espionage and treason against my own country and ironically enough, what was their own. If I could, I’d work for the Israelis.  Their pay scale is much better.  They have a good retirement plan also.

     Marzieh Hashemi has given the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Israeli intelligence, the Bolton/Pompeo/Elliott Abrams War Party, The Daily Beast, BuzzFeed, and the entire Neo-Conservative American MSM a propaganda field day.  She has betrayed Americans across the political spectrum who risked their lives and livelihoods to speak the truth to the people of the United States and the world on what was involved in 9-11 and in all the events that followed by appearing on Press TV. Her recent attempt to paint her detention in Washington as a case of white racism against all black folks and Muslims is straight out of the Black Lives Matter playbook.  It is also, sadly enough, now a transparent case of complete bullshit.

     That shall be the ultimate irony of this entire episode, with future innocent victims on both sides in the war that is coming an absolute guarantee.

The War on Free Speech Escalates: The American Arrest of Press TV Anchor Marzieh Hashemi

dankofwarwithrussia

What the hell? Let’s have a war with Russia, Iran, China, Venezuela, the Constitution of the United States, and any American who believes in the Bill of Rights, all at the same time!

     The assault on freedom of speech, freedom of association, and the right to oppose Israeli crimes and wars in the Middle East courtesy of American arms, money, and Zionist political support, has reached a new and ominously draconian level this week with the arrest and Federal detention of Press TV Iran’s anchor Marzieh Hashemi. Of the international news agencies who have covered the story since this past January 16th, Fox News would seem to have the most details presently known in this murky affair being conducted in the netherworld of the American National Security Police State.  Hashemi is an American citizen, and was attempting to fly from St. Louis to Denver to visit a brother terminally ill with cancer, when arrested at Lambert International Airport.  According to Fox, the FBI subsequently transported her to a presently unknown Federal detention facility in Washington.

hashemi01

An American citizen arrested and Federally detained without legal charges brought forth.  What was Marzieh Hashemi’s real offense?  Allowing free international TV discussion of Israel and 9-11, the Lavon Affair, the Lansky-Ben Gurion-Dimona link to the Kennedy Assassination, the USS Liberty attack, the Pollard spy case, the MEK assassinations of Iranian scientists, and the use of Al-Qaeda and ISIS against Assad?

     I will state again the summary of what I told Iran’s Press TV on this matter on open international TV on January 17th, on National Bugle Radio on the Republic Broadcasting Network with Dr. Patrick Slattery on the same date, and in subsequent conversation with Jonas E. Alexis of Veterans Today:

hashemi02

Locked Up Because She Spoke Up:  Take note, American Anti-Zionist, Anti-New World Order dissidents.

     First, the arrest of Marzieh Hashemi of Press TV and her subsequent detention is a violation of International Law and the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution.

     Second, the significance of the arrest and detention without charges is heightened by her status as an American citizen.  Every American should understand that what is directed against her now could and will be targeted at he or she tomorrow.

     Third, I am telling my responsible colleagues on the American Alt Right and Left that this arrest, in conjunction with the actions of the American National Security State against domestic activists in Alternative Media in working with Facebook, Google, Twitter, You Tube, and their “experts” at the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith (ADL) and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to hinder freedom of expression in matters related to the Zionist State of Israel, the domestic Jewish Lobby in the United States, and the marriage of the advocates of War for the American Empire with the Zionist Beast, represents a level of desperation and lawlessness not seen at any previous time in American history.

RussiaInsider23

Solzhenitsyn identifies the ultimate perpetrators of the Marzieh Hashemi arrest and Federal detention without charges in Washington.

     Fourth, this level of desperation and lawlessness indicates that the desire of the Zionist New World Order Beast to facilitate a war with Iran and possibly Putin’s Russia, now knows no boundaries.  In conjunction with the employment of the MEK to assassinate Iranian scientists on Iranian soil, the illegitimate cancellation of the P5+1 deal with Iran, the subsequent illegitimate imposition of economic sanctions on that country, and the employment of ISIS and Al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria against the Assad regime, the Marzieh Hashemi arrest and detention suggests 2019 will bring a level of escalation against the Tehran government by the Netanyahu government in Israel and Jewish Neo-Conservatives in the United States to the brink of actually achieving the war they have desired for so long.

hashemi03

Marzieh Hashemi of Press TV: Fair to all, tough as nails, articulate, of keen mind, dedicated to freedom of speech, and a threat to Washington, Tel Aviv, and Riyadh because of it.

     There are four wild cards that can and will bring down the New World OrderOne: An Iranian military capability and national will to fight consistently stronger than is understood in the United States, Israel, or the West generally.  Two:  A military intervention on behalf of Iran by Mr. Putin’s Russia.  Three:  Ongoing political and economic bankruptcy in the United States in a new phase of armed conflict which will exacerbate both. (For openers, David Stockman predicts a $40 trillion dollar national debt for the Washington Regime by the end of the decade.)  Four:  The Anti-Zionist, Anti-NWO American Right will move into a new phase of resistance, along with their counterparts on the American Antiwar Left, once the real shooting commences in the launching of a wider global conflict leading to World War III.  For real Christians in America not enamored of the American political elite, Zionism, or wars launched by both, I have recently warned of this in an essay on Christian Martyrdom and the American Empire.  The bumpy road for Marzieh Hashemi this week is about to be everyone’s bumpy road as the countdown to conflict continues apace.

     The clock is ticking to midnight.

ZionistEndgame

The most evil gameplan in human history must be stopped.  Marzieh Hashemi and Colleagues understand this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christian Martyrdom and The American Empire: Mark Dankof On The New World Order

(Lutheran Pastor Mark Dankof was invited to a private session of Texas homeschoolers and their parents in a secluded home in San Antonio, to speak on a critically important subject deliberately avoided in American schools, including the Christian academies, and especially in IRS tax exempt 501(c)3 churches drenched in the doctrines of American and Israeli Exceptionalism. Readers of Russia Insider and Russian Faith may find the greatly edited version interesting in revealing serious truths about the present situation in the United States for the Christian believer.)

DankofBroadcastStudio

Have Show, Will Travel:  Press TV Iran, David Duke on Rense, National Bugle Radio on RBN, Andrew Carrington Hitchcock on EuroFolkRadio, CII International’s Global Dynamics, American Free Press Radio.

     It is a Saturday night here in the Alamo City, also known both in this country and outside it as Military Town USA.  It is noteworthy and more than understandable that I have been invited to speak on this topic in a private home, devoid of any advance or subsequent publicity, and without the sponsorship of any educational or church organization in this 7th largest city in the continental United States.  There is ample reason for this.  We unfortunately live in a climate of fear where tonight’s topic is concerned, a climate which produces only occasional furtive glances and whispers in rooms with darkened shades among those who sense as Christian believers that something is deeply wrong in our land, so wrong that our educational and religious leaders have not only maintained sustained silence on a healthy discussion of a topic that shall not go away, but in many cases have served as sycophantic cheerleaders for that which I believe to be evil.  For some, it is the desire to be popular in the community.  For others it is the danger of being libeled and slandered that is paramount.  For yet others, it is the fear of losing a tax exempt status courtesy of the IRS and the Federal Surveillance State which is well represented in this city. Many pastors and teachers sadly confuse Empire Deification and Emperor Worship with Biblical faith and American “patriotism,” which suggests that the core lessons and warnings of the Prophets Jeremiah, Amos, and Daniel, along with John’s writings on Patmos during the reign of Domitian (81-96 A. D. ), continue to be missed, along with the basic teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ about what really constitutes the Kingdom of God and who the Israel of God is really comprised of.

PatmosAegeanSunset

Exile on Patmos: An Aegean Sunset.

     I pray we shall not miss what I truly believe to be the teachings of the Holy Spirit of God conveyed by these Biblical writers, or what I believe is being conveyed about both Martyrdom and Empire.  So we quite rightly gather on a Saturday night on our own time to examine that which is not being examined elsewhere around San Antonio this evening, as the days and nights continue to unfold before the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

     My opening premise tonight is this:  The American Empire and its linkage to the Zionist State of Israel is intrinsically evil.  These entities are at the center of the drive to the New World Order, which in turn encompasses the ideology of world government; central banking; a controlled news media; the Culturally Marxist ideologies of radical feminism, abortion-on-demand, the LGBTQ agenda, societal acceptance of pornography, and an inherent opposition to authentic Christianity.  These entities seek to enslave the entire globe with this Satanic ideology, utilizing internal subversion, wartime economic sanctions, a global surveillance police state, and overt threats of military force against nation-states who do not acquiesce to the Beast.  Iran and a post-Communist Russia being revitalized by Russian Orthodox Christian spirituality and culture are but the latest targets. The symbols of the Christian Cross and the American Flag and Constitution shall be those chosen to sell lies to the American public and the American churches as to what this coming battle is about.  Make no mistake about it.  The New World Order is about neither.  It is the avowed enemy of both, no matter how many United States Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Navy recruitment ads appear during NFL games suggesting otherwise.

AncientofDays

The Ancient of Days (Daniel 7: 9, 13, and 22) on the Mark Dankof Library and Radio Studio Wall.

     I have not come to this conclusion lightly or without personal study or sacrifice.  I will simply invite you to peruse a recent article of mine, “ACommunist’s Thoughts on the 4th of July,” both because of a young man I discuss in that essay who is a microcosm of the deception of millions of Americans who believe they are following Christ in this arena when in fact I believe the opposite is true, and also because that essay contains many links to presentations and articles I have been preparing since 9-11, often times at considerable risk over these years.  Read these articles; listen to many TV and radio broadcasts since The War on Terror began 17 years ago.  My work will lead you to that of many others of equal or greater importance than I.  Begin this journey in earnest and you will encounter a world deliberately being withheld from you by your schools, your churches, most of your textbooks, as well as the news media most of you encounter when at all. I simply ask all of you to follow the dictum of Francis Bacon:  “Read, not to believe and take for granted, nor to contradict and confute, but to weigh and consider.” Bacon’s prescription, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God, is a portion of the Full Armor of God available to the believer in an unprecedented age of evil, deception, and mass communications technology designed to disguise Satan as an Angel of Light ( 2 Corinthians 11: 14) on both a national and global basis.

     After all, how many of us have really examined the historical “truths” in our textbooks and presented on television about the Federal Reserve Board, the World Wars, Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy Assassinations and that of Martin Luther King?  Have you ever heard of Deir Yassin?  The Lavon Affair?  The USS Liberty Attack?  The Pollard Spy Case?  The real story on 9-11?  Or these Gulf Wars which began in earnest with Desert Storm under George Herbert Walker Bush in January of 1991?  What is really the truth about why our government has taken such a bellicose stance on Iran and Russia in recent years? Why has our government supported ISIS and Al-Qaeda affiliates in destroying Syria?  Why are we supporting the genocidal war of Saudi Arabia in Yemen?  Who is really behind the Pussy Riot desecrations of the Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Moscow and why?

 My second premise is this:  The American Empire today is a 21st Century repristination of the empires God has judged throughout history.  If you believe your homework assignment as a homeschooler with parents curious to find out more about about a demonized Christian pastor and commentator named Mark Dankof ended with my own recommended articles, you’re wrong (smile).  I assign you to take a closer look at the conditions mentioned by the Prophet Amos during the reign of Jeroboam II, and his prophesies about the coming judgment of the Northern Kingdom of Israel at the hands of the Assyrians who would sack Samaria in 722 B. C.  I also assign you to read the relevant Old Testament texts about God’s impending judgment upon the Southern Kingdom of Judah (605 B. C. to 586 B. C.) and the reasons for it.  Lastly, take a look at the words of our Lord in the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21) as they pertain to the pronouncement of judgment upon Judah coming in the form of the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem by Titus and the Romans in A. D. 70, or the character of the evil Ancient Roman Empire which serves as the backdrop of the martyrdoms of Peter and Paul, and the exile of St. John to Patmos described in Revelation for his refusal to venerate Emperor Domitian as the virtual Incarnation of God on earth.

     Think about itIf my analysis is correct as the Spirit of God has guided me over many years, why drape the American Empire in the Christian Cross and the American Flag?  More importantly, why should Christian parents, pastors, and churches urge the participation of our kids in killing, wounding, and displacing millions of innocent people overseas who threaten neither our faith nor our real homeland security, but whose sole transgression is failing to acquiesce in a New World Order which identically threatens Christianity itself, both in the United States, in Putin’s Russia, and on a global basis generally?  I believe this is a repudiation of the words of the Lord Jesus Christ about the nature of the Kingdom of God, and a repudiation of the Just War Theory of St. Augustine which has guided Western Christian thought for centuries on the issue of when and why a believer in Jesus Christ may take up armaments.  Perhaps even more significantly, an Empire which has become largely Antichrist in its society and in its political leadership and apostate churches, cannot possibly invoke God’s name or His blessed protection in unjustifiable and aggressive conflict and expect righteous victory to come its way.  God Bless America in the current situation in this country presumably carries absolutely no weight with the Holy Trinity, a situation which as already mentioned mirrors the worst conditions of the aforementioned empires in Biblical history recommended for study and examination.

     I am no pacifist.  I believe in St. Augustine’s Just War Theory.  I come from a lifelong Air Force family.  I am no stranger to weaponry. I would fight for the legitimate defense of the United States against domestic criminals and foreign aggressors as I would for the innocent in our own community in San Antonio whose lives are being threatened and who are defenseless.  As a personal example 3 years ago, I almost had to shoot a criminal malefactor to death who was in the process of beating a woman to death in the parking lot of my apartment complex in San Antonio, even as a 3 month old infant lay injured underneath the couple’s car.  I truly thank God everyday that circumstances that prevented that justifiable development from having to happen did take place.  You may read about it briefly hereThe point is thisWhat the American Empire and the Zionist State of Israel it supports in the Middle East have been doing for years has no such similar Biblical, moral, and legal justification.  Take a close look at the grim reality of this truism in Palestine, Gaza, the Occupied Territories, and East Jerusalem, along with Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Southern Lebanon, or Ukraine.  The coming war with Iran and Putin’s Russia will bring this evil New World Order agenda to an apocalyptic crescendo.  Christians should refuse to take up arms on behalf of this, and protect the rights of their children and church members to tell Caesar he shall not have that which belongs to Christ and Christ alone. Period. This is not Augustine’s Just War Theory operating in what we are examining here.  It is mass murder, past, present, and undoubtedly future, largely for an entity that claims a divine right to Palestine and surrounding territories, even though it rejects the Gospel of Christ in favor of a doctrine of racial supremacy, world government, a kingdom of this world not the next, and a kingdom whose instruments are not love and brotherhood but armaments of mass destruction and mass surveillance in the interest of theft by terror and death. It bears no resemblance to the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, but to Barabbas and the Jewish mob clamoring for his release at the expense of He who knew no sin. This Satanic counterfeit of the Israel of God shall even set the stage for the appearance of Antichrist, and his usurpation of the temple of God to show himself as God (2 Thessalonians 2). St. Paul warns us in this very chapter of Satanic power, signs, and wonders, and God’s sending of a strong delusion upon those who have already rejected His Son for His Son’s very antithesis.  This delusion will lead to the destruction of those who believe the lie.

PolycarpofSmyrna

St. Polycarp of Smyrna, an icon on the wall of Mark Dankof’s Library and Radio Studio.

     Let me add one sobering thought for your long term consideration tonight. My final premise is this:  It may not simply be enough to refuse to kill innocents on behalf of the American Empire and its Emperors.  The Lord may require that we be willing to die a death of Martyrdom Witness by the hand of this Empire at a time of His choosing.  Stephen, Peter, and Paul come to mind instantly as New Testament examples.  Revelation 2: 8-11 and The Cry of the Martyrs found in the 5th Seal of John’s Apocalypse in Revelation 6: 9-11 are verses which accompany these Saints of God in constant reverberations within the heart, the mind, and the soul of those in closest union with Christ.

PolycarpSmyrna02

St. Polycarp of Smyrna, rejecting Emperor Worship and the Synagogue of Satan (Revelation 2:9) for Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ Only, Forever and Ever.

     And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.  . . .

     And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

     And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

     And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

     I believe these cited verses, among others, provide us with a New Testament doctrine of witness and faithfulness unto death.  It is not an accident in redemptive history that the first example this post-apostolic faithfulness unto death proves to be St. Polycarp of Smyrna.

     Polycarp (A. D. 69-155) is one of the 3 chief Apostolic Fathers, along with Clement of Rome and Ignatius of Antioch.  His name translates into Greek as “much fruit” (Πολύκαρπος).  The two chief works which enable us to have some access to his life and death in Christ are The Martyrdom of Polycarp (Μαρτύριον του Αγίου Πολυκάρπουand his Letter to the Philippians (Επιστολή προς Φιλιππησίους). You are assigned each of these for reading and contemplation, as your parents work these into your homework schedules.  Of the many things that are exciting about homeschooling, the experience of an entire family learning together is chief among them.  So shall it be here also.

Logos02

The Lord Jesus Christ to the Church of Smyrna and The Israel of God Through the Ages:  “Be Thou Faithful Unto Death, and I Will Give Thee the Crown of Life.”

     Irenaeus indicates that he heard Polycarp in his youth.  Tertullian informs us that Polycarp had been a disciple of John the Apostle, our author of the Gospel of John, 1st-2nd-3rd John, and the Revelation on Patmos.  Jerome later conveys to us the fact that John had ordained Polycarp the Bishop of Smyrna.  Keep in mind that the Church of Smyrna in Revelation 2 was the economically poor but spiritually rich church, the church in Asia Minor warned specifically about the Synagogue of Satan, and the church instructed to be faithful unto death against the backdrop of an evil Roman Empire.  It is the prototype of the remnant Israel of God at the end of history, as the people of Christ watch spiritual darkness and apocalyptic political developments engulf the planet while clinging to the Word of God, the Holy Sacrament, and the testimony of Prophets, Apostles, and Saints.

     Lutheran scholar turned Orthodox, Jaroslav Pelikan notes this backdrop of the execution of Polycarp in Credo:  Historical and Theological Guide to Creeds and Confessions of Faith in the Christian Tradition, page 223:

     When, in the first postbiblical account of a Christian martyrdom, The Martyrdom of Polycarp, the Roman proconsul, Statius Quadratus, the political and spiritual descendant of Pontius Pilate and the representative of Emperor Antoninus Pius, orders the aged Polycarp, “Swear by the fortune of Caesar!” Polycarp instead confesses “with boldness, ‘I am a Christian.  And if you wish to learn what the doctrines of Christianity are, appoint me a day, and you shall hear them.'”  And so he went to his death.  The twentieth century, which saw the rise of both Nazi and Communist totalitarian regimes that were inimical to Christianity, also therefore produced several such confessions that were political acts in this special sense. [see Barmen Declaration of 1934]

     And so we come to the end of the hour with the question of the day being this:  While virtually everyone here will accept at face value the evil character of Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon, the Ancient Roman Empire, or the Hitler and Stalin regimes, is the American Empire somehow a beacon of light and hope to the world as our educational system, pastors, and churches often insist that it is, or is the verdict of the Activist Post more devastatingly accurate over 7 years ago in its essay, “10 Reasons America Will Be Judged as the Most Brutal Empire in History?”  Put another way, will our young people be doing the will of the Lord in serving in The Empire’s War on Terror, or is the way of Polycarp, the way of Peter and Paul, and the exilic path of John, Solzhenitsyn, Sununu and Assange, His will for the lives of those who gathered here tonight if the situation so requires?

RussiaChurch13

American Christians:  Shall They Support the New World Order’s War on Putin’s Russian Orthodox Christian Renaissance?

     For the Christian living in the United States, that question will not go away.  I hope each person here tonight will avail himself or herself of the links to articles and broadcasts over time necessary to examine the question at hand, and to search the Scriptures prayerfully and diligently.  I am thankful that a remnant of people in this city have sought to examine the evidence for themselves and to allow the Lord to lead them in the truth over time as He wills.  And in these dark days and nights, with the eschatological time clock of God ticking to the end of this present cosmos and the beginning of eternity, let us think tonight not only of our own families and friends, but those around the world already mentioned as among those most presently persecuted and endangered.  The Lord’s admonition of Revelation 2:11 echoes once again in our hearts, our minds, and our souls:  “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. . . .

     And so we close tonight with that prayer.  May we have ears to hear.  May we hear what the Spirit says to the churches.  May we overcome.  May we be spared the second death in the Lake of Fire.  For the end fast approaches.  Amen.

The Jam-e Jam (Iran) Interview with Mark Dankof on the U.S.-Iran Standoff

Jam-e Jam Newspaper

Jam-e Jam newspaper in Iran

RussiaInsider23

Who are the real adversaries of Iran, Russia, Syria, and American Nationalists?  Solzhenitsyn knew.

 

Alireza Hashemi of Iran’s Jam-e Jam Daily chats with Mark Dankof about the U. S.-Iran standoff and its implications.  

Alireza Hashemi: The 40-year standoff between Tehran and the US has entered a new phase. Washington has just reinstated the remaining part of anti-Iran sanctions suspended under the nuclear deal, with US officials describing anti-Iran punitive measures unprecedented in history.

Apparently, Washington likes Iran to be stuck between two choices: Caving into US demands or starving to death and probably suffering a subsequent US military invasion.  

The Iranian Leader, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, has said Iran will by no means enter into talks with the US and that Washington will never dare to attack the country.

There are calls inside and outside the country that Iranian officials would do well to get real about the US demands and drink the cup of poison sooner rather than later. They say the US “maximum pressure campaign” has already inflicted acute strains on Iran’s economy. What’s your view? What should Iran do? Will Iran prove capable of enduring the sanctions?

Mark Dankof: Let me say at the outset what a privilege it is to speak with you and the people of Iran from my heart about this terrible situation.  Your newspaper, the Fars News Agency, the Tasnim News Agency, IRIB radio, and Press TV have all been most gracious to me and a handful of others in the United States who have spoken out against the Zionist New World Order and the menace it poses to both of our nations.  Quite some time ago, it was my privilege to grant an interview with Reza Saidi of the Tasnim News Agency on a letter to youth written by your Supreme Leader on Western duplicity.

This duplicity has only worsened since the unilateral and illegitimate cancellation of the JCPOA/P5+1 nuclear treaty with Iran and the subsequent wartime sanctions on Iran placed upon it by an American government clearly under the heel of the Zionist Lobby which controls both the Executive and Legislative Branches of the Government of the United States and the 6 Media Consortiums under Zionist control which came together due to the American Communications Act enacted during the Clinton Administration in the 1990s.

Those of us on the Alternative Right in the United States who are anti-Zionist, and unalterably opposed to the New World Order have been most effective since September of 2001 in circumventing Zionist control of the airwaves and print publications by developing our own networks and utilizing social media to get the word out regarding what has happened and is happening in the West generally, and America specifically.  We have been so effective that in the last year, the draconian economic, political, and military actions being taken by the United States against Iran and Russia are now being directed against American dissidents opposed to these policies.  It is now a matter of public record that the Israeli Government, Israeli Intelligence, and Jewish-controlled organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith (ADL) have been working hand-in-glove with Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, YouTube, and Google to eradicate broadcasts and articles from these entities that expose the Zionist entity’s plans for further war in the Middle East, and the destruction of elements both in the United States and around the world that have stripped them naked for the entire world to see without Mainstream Media Blinders of Deception.

A classic example of this is a recent broadcast I did with Dr. Patrick Slattery of National Bugle Radio on the Republic Broadcasting Network that was subsequently uploaded to You Tube.  It is entitled, “Saraqib as Sarajevo?: Constellis and the Olive Group in the False Flag Shadows in Syria.”  Using mainstream publicly available sources, that radio show underscored the identity of these organizations working with the so-called White Helmets in Syria to pull off a chemical weapons incident that would falsely be blamed on the Assad regime.  Within 24 hours of the posting of that broadcast, YouTube banned it from something like 40 countries in the world with no explanation of why.  You and your readers will know why.  Another broadcast undertaken by us for the Republic Broadcasting Network told the truth about the real John McCain right after his death, along with the plans of Zionist John Bolton to ignite a war with both Russia and Iran.  That broadcast suffered the same YouTube censorship.  This week, Dr. Slattery and I discussed the implications of the fine video by Alison Weir of If Americans Knew entitled, “Israel’s Censorship War.”  I suspect it will also be negated by Israeli censors working obviously and publicly in the United States and globally.

I go into this detail with you and the readers of Jam-e Jam to explain what it is that I and others are up against in getting the word out about what is going on and what is being planned.  There are other things I cannot discuss openly, which you may imagine.  It is bad enough that I am actually writing about the grave possibility of eventual martyrdom of Christians in the United States who oppose the New World Order for Russia Insider and Russian Faith.

Alireza HashemiUS officials have openly talked about the need for regime change in Iran. It seems they currently hope that the Iranian people will distance themselves from their government and enact pressure for change from within the country that will yield the results desired in Washington. Are such hopes realistic? Will the US see the end of the Islamic Republic without shooting even a single bullet?

Mark Dankof:  Iran can defeat the New World Order.  There are a number of reasons I say this.  First, the attempt to declare war on Iran by covertly backing acts of terror in your country by the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK/MKO) and the Sunni Wahhabic terror groups operating in Syria courtesy of the United States, Israel, and Saudi Arabia, shall only strengthen the resolve of Iranians across the political spectrum to oppose these obviously criminal acts and conspiracies being directed from abroad.  Secondly, the American military is obviously floundering in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria.  The public in the United States is getting increasingly restive about these miserable wars and the seemingly endless character of them.  Iran has a much stronger military capability than any of these countries.  I believe Iran does possess the will and the means to block the Strait of Hormuz in the event of an American-Israeli war of aggression.  That would tank the global economy, cause a skyrocketing price in oil per barrel, and send the American Petrodollar into the proverbial dumper.

Last but not least, it is Putin’s Russia and China who are the wild cards in this entire matter.  They both understand that what is targeting Iran illegally, illegitimately, and immorally is yet to be aimed at them.  Look at these outrageous NATO military exercises in the Black Sea, the Baltic, on Mr. Putin’s borders, and the CIA-coup launched in Ukraine.  Look at the American Navy’s popup cruises in the South China Sea.

I feel that President Putin will call Washington’s military bluff if there is an attack on Iran.  American aircraft carriers and their task forces might be blown out of the water by the new and highly touted Russian hypersonic missile assets.  The actions of BRICS to marginalize the American Petrodollar as the Reserve Currency of the World will be intensified by Russia and China for the sheer survival of countries resisting the Zionist-Globalist game plan.  At that point, a United States Government which will have a $40 trillion dollar national debt by the end of the decade, and a deeply divided country politically, culturally, economically, and demographically, will begin to come apart like a cheap suit.  And last but not least, as Paul Craig Roberts has hinted, the real American Right which is as much of a Zionist target as Iran and Russia are, will take up arms to attempt a Second American Revolution and the restoration of the Old American Republic.  The Zionist Bully will get its comeuppance at the hands of both international resistance and the rising up of the phenomenon Dr. Roberts referred to in a recent article.

Alireza Hashemi: Many members of the international community oppose the US withdrawal from the nuclear accord and its restoration of anti-Iran sanctions. Europeans seem to be serious about keeping JCPOA in place. Some other countries, notably Turkey, have openly censured the US sanctions and seem to be ready to defy them. The US government was forced to exempt 8 countries from oil sanctions, despite earlier announcements that no country will get such exemptions.

Will other countries heed to US demands? Is Washington still the sheriff in the town?

Mark Dankof:  Washington is still the Sheriff in Town but not for long. It is obvious that Europeans and others under the thumb of the Zionist New World Order being directed from Washington up to now have begun to figure out how deeply they and their people will lose it all if this lunacy planned by a Zionist Occupied Government, as Pat Buchanan so aptly puts it, is put into its final phases of operation.  When domestic American political opinion finally turns on their Zionist leadership, these guys are finished.  Properly speaking, those who love the Old American Republic and want to destroy the 5th Column in their own country, recognize that Putin’s Russia, Iran, and Syria are their partners and their friends.  Together we can put this Beast out of business once and for all, but at an admittedly terrible price.  That price, however, is nothing compared to the price and the blood to be exacted by appeasement of an evil entity that will stop at nothing short of its own annihilation in history.

Alireza Hashemi:  Some believe Iran and its allies will be able to shape the New World Order in case they manage to resist the US pressure and pass the current stage of crisis. What’s your take on that?

Mark Dankof: Iran will manage to resist the Zionist New World Order as it has no choice but to do so.  A post-Communist Vladimir Putin led Russia, experiencing a pre-Communist renaissance of nationalism guided by a return to Russian Orthodox Christian Culture, has no other choice.  Mr. Assad and the Syrian people have already paid an awful price in lives and destruction in resisting these demonic people and their global plan for a World Government they control.  They are not about to quit now. And the anti-Zionist, anti-New World Order American Right that wants its country back understands what is at stake as well.  Together, we must unite in complete resolve to defeat a Global Zionist Beast which has as its foundation a cancerous Culturally Marxist, fascist Multi-National Corporate Conglomeration held together by its coercive Central Banks, accompanied by a desire to destroy anyone and anything in its path. With our unequivocal resolve, we can and will annihilate them.
