JEFF GATES: Will Israel Assassinate Barack Obama?

Will Israel Assassinate Barack Obama?

 

Below is the fifth installment in a 5-part series by Jeff Gates, author of Guilt By Association. http://criminalstate.com/guilt-by-association/

Israel's Next Move?

To assassinate an American president with impunity requires pre-staging. For Israel to succeed would require an Evil Doer on whom the deed could plausibly be blamed. The emerging fact patterns suggest that such pre-staging is well underway and that a Pakistani could be the perceived culprit. The recent history of Evil Doer branding offers insight into what to expect.

Over the course of several years, Saddam Hussein, a brutal tyrant, morphed from a loyal and valued U.S. ally to the leader of a state portrayed as a member of the Axis of Evil ready and able to deploy weapons of mass destruction on a moment’s notice. Though that depiction was a lie; a plausible lie sufficed in the creation of a credible Evil Doer to help justify the invasion of Iraq.

Similarly, the Taliban in all its many forms have long been religious fundamentalists with an intolerant streak exceeded only by their ferocity in defense of their severe version of Islam. During the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, they were celebrated as the fierce Mujahideen and heralded as heroic freedom fighters by President Ronald Reagan.

In the run-up to the provocation of 9-11, that positive “branding” abruptly changed when, six months prior to that mass murder, Afghanistan’s ancient Buddhas at Bamyan were destroyed. When the Taliban took responsibility, they were rebranded worldwide as certifiably evil for what mainstream media portrayed as a “cultural holocaust.” When staging such power-of-association operations, timing is everything. By 9-11, the Taliban were seen as world-class Evil Doers.

A similar pre-staging is underway in the U.S as manipulated impressions become the mental building blocks to create a plausible culprit from an Islamic nation. Keep in mind that repeated reports of Iraqi WMD created a generally accepted “consensus” truth—regardless of the facts.

In a similar fashion, oft-repeated reports of the threat of Iranian WMD have steadily created the impression of a nuclear weapons capability with no basis in fact. But facts are not the point when pre-staging an Evil Doer. The point is what a targeted population can be induced to believe.

Five Muslim students in the U.S. traveled to Pakistan in mid-December, setting off a flurry of reports about the threat of “homegrown terrorism.” Every report mentioned the recent shootings at Fort Hood, Texas by a Muslim psychiatrist. A series of other incidents helped enhance the plausibility of a violent event traceable to the requisite Islamic Evil Doer.

The Justice Department announced this month that the trial of a 9-11 suspect will be held in Manhattan, with a second trial in nearby Brooklyn. In explaining the projected $150 million cost, local officials likened the extensive security to what is required for a New Year’s Eve celebration—only lasting for months. These trials are akin to a high profile publicity campaign certain to keep Americans on edge while enhancing the plausibility of “Islamic” violence.

Insecurity, Plausibility & Accessibility

Yet how could an assassin reach the most closely guarded president of modern times? The plausibility of a security breach has already been pre-staged. At the first state dinner by Obama, two aspiring contestants for a reality television show foiled White House security to come within handshake distance of the president. Though no one has yet conceded how that could have happened, both the president and the First Lady have an Ashkenazi chief of staff.

Bodyguards were protecting Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin when in November 1995 a Likud Party member shot him at close range. Assassin Yigal Amir invoked a concept from ultra-orthodox Judaism to justify his murder of Rabin as a threat to Jews living in the settlements. Likud Party leader Benjamin Netanyahu led a series of rallies that Rabin described as provoking violence. Netanyahu was elected Prime Minister in June 1996 and immediately sought to inhibit implementation of the Oslo land-for-peace process agreed to by Rabin.

That same year, Richard Perle led a Jewish-American team to prepare for Netanyahu a new policy titled A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm (i.e., Israel). Then a member of the U.S. Defense Policy Board, Perle became its chairman in 2001. The central theme of A Clean Break: Israel should halt the return of Palestinian land and instead pursue an aggressive strategy that included as a priority the removal of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

Should pro-Israeli extremists detect an inclination by Barack Obama to endorse a return of Palestinian land to the Palestinians, the likelihood of his assassination will greatly increase. For his death to appear plausibly due to an Islamic source requires pre-staging akin to what is now ongoing. To displace facts with what the public can be induced to believe requires a period of mental preparation in order to make misdirection believable.

In July 2006, for instance, authors Jim Gilchrist and Jerome Corsi published Minutemen claiming that Hezbollah terrorists are sneaking across the Mexican border and plotting another 9-11. Minutemen was launched at Ground Zero, the site of the 9-11 attack, 14 days after Israel invaded Lebanon—in pursuit of Hezbollah. Had the U.S. suffered another attack, Iran-backed Hezbollah would have been the perceived culprit, providing a plausible rationale attack Iran.

Corsi remains a prolific source of prepare-the-minds publications, including Atomic Iran released in early 2005 and calling for either the U.S. or Israel to preemptively bomb the “mad mullahs of Iran.” His latest release is The Obama Nation. With a first print run of 475,000, his attack on the presidential contender immediately topped The New York Times nonfiction bestseller list. Should Obama be murdered, Corsi’s book will provide an incremental component of plausibility that the assassin was opposed not to his changed policies on Israel but to his “socialism.”

An Agenda in Need of a Crisis

Other recent incidents enhance the plausibility that an assassin could enter the U.S. from abroad. Homeland Security conceded this month that a sensitive transportation security screening manual was posted on the Internet. The ordering of more troops to Afghanistan enhances the plausibility that extremists will be driven across the border into Pakistan, only to travel from there to the U.S.

Obama’s Nobel Prize associated him with peace laureate Martin Luther King Jr. Were Obama also to die at the hands of an assassin, his “brand” has now been sufficiently enhanced that he would become an iconic figure. If Zionist extremists fail to provoke a crisis in the Middle East or South Asia, the murder of America’s first Black president would suffice as an attention-diverting crisis—particularly if those who produced his candidacy use his death to catalyze hatred between whites and blacks in the same way that they now market hatred for Muslims.

So long as Barack Obama continues to serve Israeli interests, he will continue to live a charmed life. Should he hint that justice—say for the Palestinians—is a worthy goal, the pre-staging is in place to eliminate that threat. Likewise should he seek to shut down the ongoing oligarch-ization of America and the steady piling on of disabling debt.

Should his death provoke race riots, the Department of Homeland Security is prepared to protect the agent provocateurs—under the guise of defending the perpetrators from anti-Semitism.

Would Israel assassinate a U.S. president? What kind of world would we now inhabit if Senator William Fulbright and Attorney General Robert Kennedy had succeeded in 1962 in forcing the Israel Lobby to register as a foreign agent? How would the world be different if John F. Kennedy had succeeded in 1963 in forcing international inspections of Israel’s nuclear facility?

When Robert Kennedy announced for the presidency in 1968, Tel Aviv did not know if he would revive JFK’s campaign to prevent Israel from igniting a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. Nor did anyone know if he and Fulbright would again seek transparency for Israeli operations disguised as domestic lobbying.

When RFK was murdered in June 1968, the gunman was Palestinian. That lesson should not be lost on Pakistan. In dealing with Washington, Islamabad should also recall Senator Fulbright’s candid assessment in 1973: “Israel controls the U.S. Senate.” He was gone by 1974, thirty-five influence-imbedding years ago.

  1. Scary. The book “JFK Copnspirary of Silence” by surgeon Charles A. Crenshaw, M.D. makes some curious points about the assassination. Who really was Jack Ruby (real name Rubenstein)? He and Oswald knew each other. The only words that were said to have been recorded from Oswald’s mouth was that he was a patsy. And as Oswald was shot by Rubenstein, Oswald mouthed “Oh No, Jack.” Why were some of the films by onlookers taken by so-called FBI but never returned or shown? Rubenstein was an ardent zionist who hated the Kennedy’s because of the senior Kennedy. Strange. Jackie Kennery, after divorce from Onassis, took up with a Mr. Tannenbaum, Jewish and they lived together for years. And Caroline is married to a Jewish man. Another book pointed out that JFK, as a senator visited some of the concentration camps where Palestinians had been forced and he promised them if he became president he would push for repatriation and/or compensation. Ben Gurion wrote that he would see that never happened. Later JFK had reconnaisance flights over the Negev where Israel was creating nuclear weapons – he did not want that to happen. There was never a clear decision on who killed JFK – the surgeon who was at the scene when JFK was rolled into the ER, viewed a far different neck wound than was later shown after the body had been sent for autopsy. The view the surgeon saw showed a front entrance wound, small and exiting at the back, a larger wound. He was very familiar with GSWs he said. When it was shown again, the surgeon was shocked to see a much larger neck wound. He wrote a book about it years after it happened, not earlier because of fear for his hospital job and he said Lyndon Johnson (not known for being a wonderful person) had given him a warning and all the hospital people were told not to speak about the situation. Another surgeon, Dr. Malcolm O. Perry 11 had been asked about the wound and he had said it could have been either exit or entrance. Friends have the book published in 1992 by Signet, and an article they emailed that ended with: “Friends said that whenever the subject of the assassination came up, Dr. Perry refused to talk about it with anybody.” Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper 12-12-2009 “Surgeon treated dying JFK.”

  2. Jeff Gates is a well known Looney Tune. And Jew hater. He has been a professional failure in all his careers, and the anger that causes impels him to a perverse trade to gain notoriety. I think the colloquial expression for that is ” sick “

  3. Wow. Jeff Gates really hate Jewish People and the nation of Israel. Maybe he should go live in a Muslim country and try to speak his mind. Get a life Mr. Gates.

  4. Thanks for the comments. As first published, the article included a more specific question. See http://www.opinion-maker.org/navigation.do?mode=showArticles&id=1193 For those who choose to accuse rather than deal with the facts, I urge a review of Guilt By Association (available on the Criminal State website) with close attention to the chapter titled “The New Anti-Semitism” (i.e., anyone critical of Israeli policy no matter how extreme their behavior). This trans-generational criminality can now be stopped provided people can engage the facts and jettison what they have been deceived to believe, including the false belief that this “state” is an ally — of any country.

  5. great stuff Mr. gates. yes its possible that the spooks in our fine country have a plan just like they did for 9/11 and all the other past deeds covered up since post WWII.can’t let the tax payers get lulled into complacency were due some sort of a surprize soon.

  6. It appears that certain established facts and realities do not shock at best and alert at worst, the American People. The fact that this President has received more death threats than any other; that citizens parade at Presidential appearances with sidearms and assault rifles and that at a recent State Dinner for the leader of the world’s largest Democracy, the potential threat to the security of both Heads of State put flesh on the bones of the unthinkable. In my lifetime, I have seen the State of Israel go from a haven for a people recovering from their closest threat to genocide in 3,000 years and a recipient of American aid and patronage, to the most repressive and Machiavellian state on earth is appalling. The fact that 9-11 was more than convenient to Likud Foreign Policy, and enriched a corporation with close ties to the sitting Vice-President along with the decimation of the ranks of the finest military force on earth; should be a clarion call of a Tragedy that would greatly overshadow the cover-up of November 22, 1963 in Dallas.

  7. Anyone who touches even a hair on his head; will be dealt with, severally.
    I don’t want to, but I’m starting to think that you’re one of those closet racist.
    Who get off by declaring a lot of discontent among the faithful.

  8. Wey to go Rey! (But I’d unlock your Caps or the Tea Pot will think you are shouting. We already know he is very sensitive!)

  9. DENNIS ACCUSING THIS ARTICLE TO BE WRITTEN BY A “RACIST PIG” IS IGNORANT, OR POLITICALLY NAIVE, OR A ZIONIST BLINDLY SUPPORTER OF ISRAEL NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO.
    EITHER WAY HE OBVIOUSLY DOES NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT RACISM IS
    THIS ARTICLE DEMONSTRATES FACTS WHICH CAN BE FOUND IN DECLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS
    TERRORISM,POLITICAL ASSASSINATIONS ETC, ARE FOR THE VAST MAJORITY SECRETLY SPONSORED BY GOVERNMENTS AS COVERED OPERATIONS (BLACK OPS). TODAY THE BATTLE FIELD IS THE MIDDLE EAST IN THE PAST IT WAS EUROPE, RACE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT, POLITICAL INTRIGUES FOR POWER CONTROL (AND ACCESS TO RESOURCES) IS THE REAL REASON.
    LONE GUNMAN (USEFUL IDIOT MANIPULATED BY INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES), FALSE FLAG ATTACKS
    (BOMBING OR TERRORIST ATTACKS USING MERCENARIES POSING AS SOLDIERS OR TERRORISTS OF A TARGETED COUNTRY FOR INVASION) HAVE BEEN USED FOR CENTURIES.
    NAZI GERMANY IS THE PREFECT EXAMPLE, NOT TO LONG AFTER ADOLF HITLER WAS ELECTED AND TOOK OVER, AN EXPLOSION FOLLOWED BY A FIRE DESTROYED A PART OF THE GOVERNMENT BUILDING (REICHTAG) IT WAS IMMEDIATELY ANNOUNCED THAT THE CRIMINAL “TERRORISTS ACT” WAS COMMITTED BY JEW COMMUNISTS AND A MAN WAS ARRESTED, THEN NEW LEGISLATIONS WERE PASSED (OVER RIDING MOST OF THE GERMAN CONSTITUTION, LIKE OUR PATRIOT ACT DO)
    MORE SECRET POLICE “GESTAPO” (IN ENGLISH HOMELAND SECURITY POLICE) WERE SENT ….
    IT WAS DISCOVERED LATER THAT HITLER’S SECRET AGENTS PLACED THE FIRE BOMB THEMSELVES
    IN ORDER TO JUSTIFY AND LEGALIZE THE POLICIES WHO FOLLOWED…(WE KNOW WHAT THEY WERE CONCERNING THE JEWS AND COMMUNISTS AS POTENTIAL ENEMIES OF THE STATE)
    IS STATING THESE FACTS IS “RACIST-ANTI GERMAN ?
    ISRAEL IS VERY WELL KNOWN FOR USING “FALSE FLAG” METHODS TO JUSTIFY THEIR POLICIES TOWRAD MUSLIM COUNTRIES (OR CREATING CONFLICTS USING ARABS IN COVERED OPERATIONS IN ORDER TO PROVOKE THE U S TO REACT, THE USS LIBERTY IS AN EXAMPLE , NOW DECLASSIFIED
    DOCUMENTS ON THE ISRAELI MILITARY OPERATION “SINAI” EXPOSE THE FALSE FLAG ATTACK AGAINST OUR SHIP KILLING AMERICANS IN ORDER TO PUSH THE UNITED STATES AT WAR WITH EGYPT IN 1967. I GUESS THE DECLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS FROM NSA, CIA AND MOSSAD ARE RACISTS AND ANTI SEMITE ACCORDING TO DENNIS I
    NOT TO MENTION THE ISRAELI AIR FORCE PILOT WHO TESTIFY , EXPLAINING THAT HE REFUSED THE ORDER TO SHOOT AT THE AMERICAN BOAT WHICH WAS OBVIOUSLY FRIENDLY.
    NOTHING IS ALL “BLACK OR WHITE”, OR “GOOD GUY BAD GUYS”….A LOT OF GREY AREAS IN POLITIC !.
    THE SCENARIO IN THIS ARTICLE IS ABSOLUTELY REALISTIC, AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RACISM BUT WITH HUMAN NATURE GREED FOR POWER AND CONTROL.
    DENNIS SHOULD TAKE THE TIME TO GOOGLE “OPERATION NORTHWOODS” AND READ THE FULL CONTAIN OF THE DECLASSIFIED DOCUMENT (DATED 1962) AND LEARN WHAT GOVERNMENT, MILITARY OR INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES DO SOMETIME…. AND THEY STILL DO

  10. Mr Gates continual rant about the Israel conspiracy thoery sounds very much like the new world order crowd. Anecdotal evidence can be colected an weaved together to support any point oview, and Mr Gates being the attorney that he is has mastered the art of a word smith. I expect he will continue to serve up fantasy’s for his gullible followers.

  11. The three words missing from the beginning of the title might be ‘How and when’. Obama will be allowed to remain alve as long as the question ‘Is he good for the Zionist agenda?’ can be answered more in the positive than the negative. People as sharp and cynical as the Mossad Molochs are not going to be without a contingency plan if he goes off-message.
    A suggestion for Dennis the Tea Pot, if this site is full of ‘racist crap’, why do you return on such a regular basis, like a dog to its vomit, or is that your brief? As opposed to tribalism, race is a matter of colour. What colour are Zionists that Americans, or indeed any critics of Zionist ambitions, are not? Ask the Mad Hatter to remind you what the dormouse said, Tea Pot.

  12. What a bunch of crap!! Just another racist artilce that this site supports.

    Racist Pigs…

  13. i hope so-along with other politicians!political change comes at the end of a barrel of a gun!
