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

MarkDankofAFPAustinNov2013

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

And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

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

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

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

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

—Revelation 13: 16-18

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

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

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

—Jesus Christ in Matthew 24:3-5

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

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

KarlHess01

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SAMLKFreeAtLast

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

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

ZionistMarxistQueerflag

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mark Dankof to the Foundation to Defend the First Amendment: Sincere Thanks for Your Selection

Mark Dankof: Thanks to the Foundation to Defend the First Amendment.

Mark Dankof: Thanks to the Foundation to Defend the First Amendment.

5 February 2013

The Honorable James P. Tucker, Jr., Chairman
Foundation to Defend the First Amendment
645 Pennsylvania Avenue, S. E.
Suite 100
Washington, D. C. 20003
 

Dear Mr. Tucker:

I wanted to thank the Foundation to Defend the First Amendment and Mr. Willis A. Carto, personally and publicly, for naming me on February 1st, 2013 as one of the recipients of your annual award for my “outstanding efforts to exercise your [my] First Amendment right of Freedom of Speech” in the year 2012.

This past year has been an especially busy one for me.  In addition to my radio show on The Ugly Truth, I have ventured to South Africa for fact finding and some radio appearances, and have had some significant opportunities with Press TV/Iran, the Habilian Association of Iran, and Kourosh Ziabari of the Fars News Agency in that country. One of those conversations has involved the topic of Israel and 9-11, a topic renewed in December in my radio chats with Al Ansaar Radio in Durban, South Africa.

As a Man of the Old American Right, I have continued to work with sincere American patriots who have been ongoingly but understandably misguided in their confusion of the American Republic with the American Empire, and the true American national interest with that of the Zionist Lobby and their allies in the International Banking Cabal working toward the establishment of the New World Order.  An article I submitted to the American Free Press some years ago continues to get constant review by both my advocates and detractors in this larger conflict.  That article, “Memorial Day from San Antonio:  The Final Resting Place of Marquis J. McCants and the Death of the American Republic,” was read just today by an American family whose loved one is in residence at San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC) as the result of the War in Afghanistan.  It may not be a coincidence that this contact with me on the Internet comes on the same day as news of your award to me.  It suggests that despite the mutual difficulties we encounter in what we do, we occasionally hit the target and accomplish something on behalf of our countrymen and countrywomen who need our message the most.

You may be interested that I have joined such luminaries as Michael Collins Piper, Hesham Tillawi, Mark Glenn, and your own Willis Carto, in being assailed publicly by an increasingly shrill Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith for my work with Press TV/Iran.  The Foundation to Defend the First Amendment may well enjoy my formal response to the ADL, along with the recent observations about Hasbara Project machinations made by United States Ambassador Charles Freeman in a piece entitled, “Hasbara and the Control of Narrative as an Element of Strategy.”

The point we agree on is this:  We are not in this for money, prestige, or ease of lifestyle, but to save our nation and our beloved Constitution from The Beast.  Three short paragraphs from your letter of February 1st are worth repeating to a wider readership:

The Foundation to Defend the First Amendment (FDFA) believes that every citizen in this great country has an obligation to use the First Amendment in defense of our Constitutional liberties.

America is unique in that freedom of speech and freedom of thought is guaranteed by our fundamental law.  Philosophers know that without this basic right, no other rights can be of value.  If we do not have the right to make political criticisms, we are at the mercy of whoever has seized the reins of political power.

In the name of the Foundation, its Board of Directors and thousands of supporters throughout America, you are encouraged to continue your individual assertion of your First Amendment right.

I am indeed encouraged by your Foundation today.  I will continue in this often quixotic endeavor for reasons sometimes known only to God.  In continuing, my agenda this year is as follows:  To continue with my radio broadcasting to the extent that I can; to write articles when I have something to say or add that contributes significantly to a legitimate debate; to resume my research on my thesis on Christian Zionism and  theological German language study this year; and to travel once more outside our nation on a First Amendment project of note.  It was Malaysia two years ago; South Africa this past calendar year.  The next stop in my itinerary is yet to be determined.  I will keep you posted.

Sincerely yours,

Mark Dankof

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

    

Mark Dankof in University of Texas/Austin colors on a frigid day in northern Idaho. November, 2010.

 
 
 
 
     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.
