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


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.


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.”


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.

     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.


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?


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 Interview with the Habilian Association: On Israel, the MEK, and Iran

Mark Dankof: "The Mujahedeen-e-Khalq: The Intersection of the CIA-Mossad-Saudi Nexus Against Iran"

The Habilian Association of Iran talks to American conservative and Taft-Buchanan Republican Mark Dankof about Israel, American foreign policy in the Middle East and Asia, and the role of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK/MKO/PMOI) in both.  A past Republican Party District Chairman in Seattle, Washington; U. S. Senate candidate in Delaware in 2000 for Howard Phillips’s Constitution Party; and radio voice in recent years with Lebanese-American Mark Glenn of The Ugly Truth, Dankof also serves as a Lutheran clergyman in San Antonio, Texas and theological graduate student.  His last academic degree’s thesis will deal with the subject of Christian Zionism and the latter’s role in shaping a pro-Israel American foreign policy.  Mr. Dankof’s recent appearances on Iran’s Press TV are augmented by his opinion-editorials, which include, “The Red Ladies:  Sara Flounders and Debra Sweet,” “Mark Dankof’s Final Word on Michael Collins Piper’s ‘Final Judgment’ on Israel and the Assassination of JFK,” “The Bank Markazi Blacklist Proposal:  Straight out of the McCollum Memorandum and the FDR Playbook for War,” “2012 Options for The Real Right:  But is it Too Late? ,” and “Rapture Rick Perry of Texas:  Israel’s Stealth GOP Presidential Candidate?

Habilian AssociationTell us about Intelligence collaboration between the MKO and the Israeli Mossad over Iran’s nuclear case.

Mark Dankof:  Information from non-classified sources is circumstantial but overwhelmingly strong.  Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal-State Fullerton, probably the leading authoritative source in the United States on the MEK, and its presently functional relationship with the Israeli Mossad and elements in the American intelligence community, has publicly stated via his own sources that the MEK is the leading tool of Israeli intelligence and American Neo-Conservatives in the latter’s espionage agencies in launching acts of destablization and violence directed at Iran’s current government and conducted illegally within Iranian borders.  Foote identifies the PJAK, the offshoot of the Kurdish separatist PKK, and the Jundallah, as the other elements in this dangerous game.  The MEK’s fingerprints in Tehran are joined by what seems to be a cooperative relationship with PJAK directed against the Iranian government in efforts launched from northeast Iraq and the Qandil Mountains and directed against Iranian Azerbaijan.  And suspicious terror activities in Khuzestan and Diyala Provinces in recent years seem to be augmented by bomb blasts and terror killings in Balochistan Province in Iran where it appears that the MEK’s partner-in-crime is the Jundallah based in Pakistan.  But again, the Hidden Hand is comprised of the obvious, bigger ultimate players and assets.  The increase in PKK attacks on Turkey since May 2009 coincides exactly with the corresponding time frames of the Turkish government’s public beefs with Israel over the Mavi Marmara shoot-up and other formal Erdogan government protests against the actions of the Netanyahu regime in Gaza and elsewhere.  What does this tell any of us?  But for the Israeli Mossad, the American CIA, the British MI6, and their respective Commanders-in-Chief, the operative concept is “plausible deniability.”

     Mainstream American governmental and media sources confirm publicly that the MEK is the source of the information being used by pro-Israeli American Neo-Conservatives to argue for a military attack on Iran to preemptively strike the latter’s alleged weaponized nuclear program and its suppposed desire to use it against Israel.  It is noteworthy that this “information” contradicts the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) report prepared by the 16 intelligence agencies of the American national security establishment regarding Iran and its nuclear program.  Worse yet, there have been repeated allegations in the international press corroborated by Israel’s critics in the American intelligence community that these MEK-generated reports and the lies in them being repeated incessantly by every War Party news agency from CNN to Fox News, World Net Daily, The Weekly Standard, NewsMax, and National Review, are in fact nothing more than the Israeli government’s brokering of deliberate agitation-propaganda to the voluminously gullible and ignorant consumers of these well-packaged charades which employ the MEK as the broker.  I believe Philip Giraldi of the Council for the National Interest and Buchanan’s The American Conservative, and former CIA station chief in a couple of different places over the years, is among those making this charge.  In essence, it would appear to be the case beyond a shadow of a doubt that the MEK is playing the same Judas Goat role for the American and Israeli intelligence establishments that the Iraqi National Congress (INC) and Ahmad Chalabi did with their brokered nonsense before the last American invasion of Iraq that Saddam Hussein possessed “Weapons of Mass Destruction.”  This is a critical angle to this present story involving the MEK.  Why should the people of the United States and honest policy makers in Washington (all 10 of them?) now believe sources on Iran in 2011 with every motive for lying and a past record of doing so, especially in the last ten years?

     After the last assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran, Newsweek magazine all but confirmed the role of the Mossad and the MEK in that murder (and the previous episodes as well).  The coverage was preposterously positive regarding these killings.  To put into perspective just how this ruthless game is played, your readers may find it interesting that when the late Sidney Harman owned Newsweek, his wife was California Democratic Congressman Jane Harman, a member of the House Intelligence Committee.  According to Pat Buchanan, Mrs. Harman was overheard on an American National Security Agency (NSA) wiretap assuring some Israelis at the other end of the conversation that she would use her considerable and covert influence on Capitol Hill to have American prosecutors drop their espionage case against Weissman and Rosen of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) for illegally obtaining classified National Security Council (NSC) documents on Iran from one Larry Franklin, so-called NSC expert on Iran.  This is just one example of how American financial, political, and media power always seems to intersect when it comes to the subject of Israel.  And since Israel and the MEK are now full business partners in directing their animus at Iran, the MEK will draw an increasingly free pass in the American media and government, as long as they are doing the Mossad and Israeli Lobby’s bidding.

     All of this of course, increases the moral bankruptcy of this policy mix exponentially, when considered in conjunction with the clearly established fact that Israel is the weaponized nuclear monolith of the Middle East; has never and presumably will never submit to any form of international inspection of its nuclear program, not to mention its known stockpile of every biological and chemical warfare agent known to humanity; while the Zionist State’s policies in Occupied Territories and Gaza, as evidenced by its military assault on the civilian Mavi Marmara humanitarian flotilla in international waters in May of 2009, and the earlier Operation Cast Lead in Gaza, are the acts of an increasingly desperate entity led by a criminal cabal of sociopaths.  If the United States is worrying about nuclear weapons in the hands of the wrong people, it should start with taking a hard look at our leading “ally” in the region.  But the money trail will keep that from ever happening.  . . .

Habilian Association: What do you know about further Israeli support for Mujahedin-e Khalq, I mean financially, logistically…?

Mark DankofOne presumes that the Israeli and American money trails going to and from the MEK are closely guarded black-operational intelligence secrets not necessarily even known in details and numbers by the denizens of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees.  Or shall we say, at least not known to anyone on those Committees of Alleged Oversight not in the back political and financial pocket of the Israeli Lobby.  That in and of itself, raises a related issue—the amount of PAC money going into American elections from approximately 30 PACS known to have direct or disguised links to the Israeli monolith in this country, as chronicled by Janet McMahon and Hugh Galford of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA).

     One recent news article is most suggestive, however.  That is Elizabeth Rubin’s New York Times op-ed of August 13th, “An Iranian Cult and its American Friends.”

     This article, in the most Corporate Establishment, pro-Zionist newspaper in America (along with The Washington Post), underscores that the MEK is exactly what the Habilian Association, Mark Dankof, Ed Blanche of The Middle East desk in Beirut, and the RAND Corporation say it is:  a totalitarian cult which not only possesses a warped “Islamic-Marxist” ideology that is inherently contradictory, but is led by Miryam and Masoud Rajavi in a fashion reminiscent of that which governed the Reverend Jim Jones’ leadership of his demonic religious cult at Jonestown a generation ago in Guyana.  Even more significantly, the Elizabeth Rubin expose provides a laundry list of people in the American military, intelligence, and political establishments who are fraudulently working to have the MEK removed from the State Department terrorist organization list and subsequently legitimized.  This would be bad enough, but they are doing it for money—plenty of it, to the tune of $25,000 to $50,000 a speaking engagement on the MEK’s behalf.  (see the excellent RAND Corporation report on the MEK at RAND_MG871 MEK PAPER )

     Most critically, Rubin’s essay is potent for what it doesn’t say, and is patently obvious to anyone familiar with the subject:  These paid American denizens of pro-MEK activities and plans have Israel’s fingerprints all over them.  The names in her article overlap with the Israeli oriented think tanks Inside the Beltway, and the Israeli money on Capitol Hill documented by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA).  One does not have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what is going on here.  This is ultimately the Israeli Lobby and the government of Benjamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman at work for apocalyptically nefarious purposes.

     The Elizabeth Rubin New York Times expose also mentions the “millions” at the disposal of the MEK for its current public relations campaign in the United States, using these bought-and-paid for players in the American establishment.  It begs the question:  Where do Miryam and Masoud Rajivi and the MEK get this kind of money?  On what basis does Elizabeth Rubin cite the ambiguous but potent term “millions” to describe their financial power?  How many “millions” are we talking about specifically?  And what rag-tag “Islamic-Marxist” cult presently camped out in Paris and Camp Ashraf can have “millions” to dispense on political hired guns in America without major outside sources of funding?  And who are these outside sources of this kind of cash?  Oil and banking come to mind as possible places to look.  Beyond that, one doesn’t have to look too much further to find Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Israel Lobby in the United States, and international oil consortiums, as the chief targets of suspicions as to who and what really constitutes the force behind the attempted renovation of the MEK’s image and fortunes in the West.

     Rubin’s New York Times piece of August 13th is also noteworthy for what it doesn’t mention or explain:  The MEK’s most well-heeled and connected American power broker is the Iran Policy Committee of Dr. Raymond Tanter of Georgetown University, his colleague Clair Lopez of the Central Intelligence Agency, and the assortment of Israeli oriented think tanks and individuals who shadow the Iran Policy Committee, including the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) strongly linked to Dr. Tanter.  This picture is abundantly clear, despite the reticence of The New York Times, at least to this point, to cover the real players and angles in the story.

Dr. Raymond Tanter: The Intersection of Georgetown University, the MEK/MKO/PMOI/NCRI, and the Israeli-influenced WINEP

     Perhaps the most spicy and inflammable aspect of the story of Dr. Raymond Tanter, Clair Lopez, and the Iran Policy Committee involves the explosive divorce of Raymond Tanter from his ex-wife, Constance Tanter.  Mrs. Tanter alleges a most incredible tale of international intrigue that resulted in the targeted demise of her marriage, career, and personal life, up to and including the specific charge that at the direction of her ex-husband, the MEK and Clair Lopez forcibly held Constance Tanter captive; transported her against her will to Paris, France; and subjected the Georgetown University professor’s wife to a coercive interrogation in the French capital designed to extort a signed capitulation to a divorce settlement characterized by Mrs. Tanter as literal robbery at gunpoint.  If Constance Tanter is telling the truth, Madam Rajavi was personally present for her interrogation and forced capitulation to a dictated divorce decree introduced into the American court system after the fact.

     Are the charges true?  Outsiders who have heard the allegations are at one level incredulous, yet uncommitted because of the cultic history of the Rajavis chronicled by Ed Blanche of The Middle East and other internationally credible sources.

Constance Tanter: Targeted by Raymond Tanter, Israeli Intelligence, and the MEK/MKO/PMOI in divorce settlement proceedings?

Alban Towers in Washington: DC Headquarters of The Iran Policy Committee and Denizens of Israeli Intelligence and the MEK

     One thing is crystal clear:  Mrs. Tanter is taking her allegations to The New York Times and other outlets who have already covered the MEK’s activities up to this point.  Her allegations are buttressed by a thick file of papers, diary notes, photostatically reproduced copies of Iran Policy Committee documents, and a complete list of the Iran Policy Committee’s e-mail contacts by name and accompanying e-mail addresses.  That list represents a virtual Who’s Who of the American Neo-Conservative, pro-Zionist Right; major figures in the Israeli government and intelligence community; MEK assets around the globe; and major players in a number of world governments and media outlets who seem to have more than a passing involvement with what Elizabeth Rubin terms, “An Iranian Cult.”  This story continues to unfold.

Habilian Association: What’s the role of Israel in the Iranophobia project and the creation of a false dichotomy between Iran and its neighboring countries? What would Israel find beneficial in playing a role in this ?

Mark Dankof:  This one is easy.  Any Internet search on the Iranophobia and Islamophobia projects internationally leads straight to Israel and its assets in the American Neo-Conservative Right.  The Center for American Progress report is among those that lead straight to the key players in the creation, funding, and dissemination of the Iranophobia and Islamophobia seeping out of Daniel Pipes, Pamela Geller, Frank Gaffney, Kenneth R. Timmerman, Stephen Emerson, and the Israeli foundations, PACS, and media outlets.  This is a no-brainer.  The way these jokers spun the Breivik murders in Norway is a primer for the way they do business in virtually everything else.  I keep waiting for these kosher Ken and Barbie Dolls to explain Zionism’s history with the United States going back to the relationship of the Meyer Lansky Crime Syndicate to the Jewish Haganah’s blowing up of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, the Lavon Affair, the Kennedy Assassination, the USS Liberty attack, the PROMIS affair, the Pollard spy case, and the recent AIPAC spy cases.  Frankly the Pipes, Geller, Gaffney, Emerson crowd reminds me of the old Colt 45 malt liquor TV commercials in the United States, where the guy sitting at the cafe table by himself in the middle of the bullfighter ring is oblivious to the real wars taking place all around him that constantly get closer to enveloping him while he quietly sips his drink.  The pro-Zionist American Right and Left are just like this:  focusing on an exaggerated and falsified threat, while ignoring the major player in the destruction of their national security, culture, political integrity, and economy.  It is pathetic.

     This is a $42 million dollar industry, the production and dissemination of the constant stream of anti-Iranian, anti-Islamic propaganda in the United States and Europe.  Someone is paying for it, and finds it profitable to continue paying for it.

     By the way, the classic example for our discussion is this:  Who produced and paid for the anti-Iranian propaganda film, Iranium, being promoted by Eric Cantor, Sam Brownback, Joseph Lieberman, and the usual suspects on Capitol Hill?  I don’t yet have the facts, but the promotional film available on the Internet is connected to Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy.  The television spokesperson for the film is none other than Clair Lopez of the Iran Policy Committee and the Central Intelligence Agency.  Get the picture?

Habilian Association:  What is your estimation of the recent American accusation of Iran’s attempt to kill the Saudi Arabian ambassador to US?

Mark Dankof:  I believe the accusation is absurd on its very face.  As I told Press TV the other night, the nature of this alleged plot presupposes that the Supreme Leader of Iran, the Guardians Council, President Ahmadinejad, and the leadership of the Islamic Republican Guard Corps are all idiots.  They clearly are not.  There is no way that anyone acquainted with the intelligence and shrewdness of these Iranian leaders would buy for one minute the notion that they would commission a plot as reckless as this one, with two Iranian individuals representing the unstable profiles of the accused, and in conjunction with an unproven asset in a Mexican drug cartel (who proved to be an American DEA informant).  This is straight out of the Keystone Cops.

     And when we ask who might have benefited by a false-flag operation of this type pinned on Iran, the clear answer is Israel and its Neo-Conservative agents of influence in the American government angling for a wider war in the Middle East.  Israel does not want any regional power in the Middle East threatening its absolute hegemony in the region, especially Iran.  Simultaneously, they need an international PR diversion from their illegal activities in Gaza, the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and elsewhere, where the Zionist State is clearly losing catastrophically in international opinion in every known venue outside that of the United States.  Even in the case of the latter, there are evidences of cracks in the canvas where the Netanyahu government is concerned.  And between the ominous downturn in the American national economy, and the upcoming Presidential election in 2012 where Obama and his GOP opponents are tripping over each other to demonstrate which has the most absolute fealty to American Jewry and the Israeli Lobby’s entrenched position on the Hill, the aggregate picture suggests the identity of the leading candidates for using this so-called Saudi Envoy Assassination Plot for their own non-publicly-advertised purposes and agendas.

     And now that there is a published allegation that Interpol in France has established an MEK-link and affiliation for the second terror suspect now in custody, the odor becomes even more pungent.  Yesterday’s New York Times made reference to this allegation, but only in a small strip column on page A8.  Where is Elizabeth Rubin on this one?  Or is the Israeli scent to the trail one her bosses have told her not to follow?  We shall see.  Mrs. Rubin’s July 13th, 2003 essay, “The Cult of Rajavi,” taken in tandem with her story of August 13th this year on the MEK, fills in many blanks.  Will she fill in the rest of them, and connect the rest of the dots for the composite portrait on the canvas?  If she should do so, some sordid people will run pell mell for the exits.  If she doesn’t, American Corporate/Zionist media will have failed the acid test one more time.

Habilian AssociationAfter all these many years, you should visit in Iran again.

Mark Dankof:  Time and political developments will determine whether or not God will grant me that special privilege.  If I do get the chance to come, it is my intention to also visit Yerevan and some of the Christian monsteries in Armenia, maybe in conjunction with another pilgrimage to the Armenian Christian Festival of St. Thaddeus at the Church of St. Stephanos in Azerbaijan Iran.  My own feelings about your country are best expressed by your 10th century poet, Ferdowsi.  I understand that chiseled on his stone tomb at Tus is an inscription of his immortal words which state, “Let not this body live if there is no Iran.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

     The kicker is in paragraphs 2 and 3:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

     “[Signed] A. H. McCollum

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

     Will The Masters pull it off again?

Mark Dankof to Christian Science Monitor: The Republic Broadcasting Network and Fringe Right Extremism






Letter to the Editor
Christian Science Monitor
Dear Sir (s):
     As a Lutheran pastor and ex-host of “Mark Dankof’s America” on the Republic Broadcasting Network, I wish to respond to your recent articles by Patrik Jonsson, entitled “Guardians of the free Republics Tied to Texas Radio Station,” and “Guardians of the free Republics:  Could Threats Spark Violence?”
     It is clear that Sam Kennedy of the “Take No Prisoners”  show on the Republic Broadcasting Network, was clearly irresponsible in his reported actions taken in conjunction with the Guardians organization, apparently inextricably linked to the “sovereign citizens” ideology.  Much like its first cousin, the so-called Christian Identity movement, such groupings simply serve to discredit a larger American populist movement that has many legitimate grievances, and an equal number of intellectually respectable adherents.
     During my tenure with the Republic Broadcasting Network, a number of people in this latter category were guests on my show.  These people include Mark Weber of the Institute for Historical Review; Dr. Ron Larsen of Liberty Calling in Austin, whose possession of a Ph. D. in physics from Cornell University made him uniquely qualified to address issues related to the government’s official version of the events surrounding September 11, 2001; Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, assistant secretary to the Treasury under President Reagan; Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal State Fullerton University, an expert on the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (Mek/MKO); and Dr. David Duke, presently teaching history in the Ukraine.  Allowing these individuals to speak directly to my audience for themselves, and to be unfiltered by the lenses of American corporate media’s interpretation of their public personas and positions, was an invaluable exercise I do not apologize for.
     I had a much larger grouping of guests as well, including the ex-CIA station chief in Turkey, Philip Giraldi, now a Middle East consultant for Pat Buchanan’s The American Conservative; Ray McGovern of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) and preparer of National Intelligence Estimates (NIE) for the President of the United States; Dr. Ilan Pappe, author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine; Dilip Hiro, author of The Iranian Labyrinth and The Essential Middle East, and Middle East consultant for the BBC and The Economist; world renowed military historian Barrett Tillman, author of LeMay for the Palgrave Great Generals Series; and Ms. Jennifer Lowenstein, Middle East peace activist with academic connections at both the University of Wisconsin and Oxford University in England.  One presumes Mr. Giraldi may agree with some of my views; it is a safe bet that these other guests sharply deviate from my ideas in many areas of public policy.  Yet they have all been on my broadcast, much to the edification of my listeners.
     There is one other item of note that I hope you will not edit from my letter to your fine publication:  the clear benefit derived by the Southern Poverty Law Center and its sister organization, the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith (ADL), from the demonstrated irresponsibility of the Republic Broadcasting Network in providing an assist to Mr. Kennedy and the loon mentality of the “sovereign citizens” movement, in distributing the recent letter to American governors around the country, including Governor Rick Perry here in Texas.  This letter is a moral, political, and intellectual embarrassment to the respectable American populist and anti-neo-conservative Right, and should be repudiated unequivocally and without ambiguity.
     How does this faux pas benefit the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith?  In one obvious way–it assists these far-left organizations, working in conjunction with misguided elements of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Homeland Security, in demonizing law-abiding and faithful Americans who in fact, are tired of the disproportionate influence of the Israel lobby in formulating our nation’s foreign policy and unduly influencing corporate news media in the United States; who see the over-extended character of the American military posture abroad, including our present quagmires in Iraq and Afghanistan, as a long-term threat to both true American national security interests, and economic stability at home; who do not support the preemptive utilization of American and Israeli military force against Iran; who view the draconian expansion of federal budgets, debt, and foreign borrowing as a sword pointed at the throat of our Republic; who have watched globalist trade treaties facilitate the exportation of the previously formidable American manufacturing economic sector overseas; who understand with increasing alarm, the dangerous implications of warrantless NSA spying and other post 9-11 programs of federal intelligence and surveillance operations left unchecked by the Constitution, the Congress, and the FISA court; and who want the worse excesses of the Federal Reserve Board and the central banking system eliminated, and its perpetrators held accountable.
     John Stadtmiller of the Republic Broadcasting Network, and Sam Kennedy of the “Take No Prisoners” radio show, have handed these enemies of our movement, a serious propaganda coup in the national public embarrassment generated by the events of recent days.  Such situations that have occurred from time to time at that Network contributed to my own decision to vacate the premises, along with colleagues Mark Glenn and Phil Tourney of The Liberty Hour, who like me can only breathe a sigh of relief at the wisdom of our voluntary disaffiliation for other confines.
