Rick Perry, Glenn Beck and Alan Dershowitz: Meshugener or Shmucks?

by Eileen Fleming

 

Mishugener is a Yiddish word meaning insane or crazy. A Schmuck is Yiddish for a self-made fool- but it also refers to male only anatomy.

Beck is a Mormon with close ties to the Tea Party and fundamentalist Christians. A fundamentalist is best understood as one who is so attached to their point of view that they have quit thinking!

Beck has been in Israel for more than a week preparing for his “Restoring Courage” rally which was attended by some of the 81 US Congressional Representatives who are in Israel on a junket paid for by the American Israel Education Foundation, an affiliate of AIPAC.

“One week before announcing his candidacy for president, Texas Governor Rick Perry led an all-day prayer rally in a stadium in Houston. Don Finto led the prayer for Israel and openly called for Israelis and all Jews to accept Jesus in order to bring “a great revival to the entire world.” [1]

Don Finto is the author of Your People Shall Be My People, which provides instructions in how to avoid overt proselytizing and emphasizes that Christian Zionists are Israel’s only friends.

True friends tell you the truth and the truth is that Christian Zionists are NO friend to the people of Israel or America!

As Mordechai Vanunu, the Whistle Blower of Israel’s WMD program explained to me in 2005:

“The time has come for the United States to see the truth of Zionism. It began as a secular nationalist movement, not a religious one. Then some Christians believed that when Israel became a nation, it was the beginning of the second coming. They are deluded if they believe peace will come through atomic weapons. Atomic weapons are holocaust weapons. Christians should be the first people against them. The Christians in America should be helping the Christians here. America needs to wake up to this fallacy that Jesus will come back by nuclear war. America needs to wake up to the fact that the Palestinian Christians here have no human rights. Aren’t Christians supposed to be concerned about other Christians? Aren’t Christians supposed to be concerned about all the poor and oppressed?” [2]

On August 22, 2011, Alan Deshowitz wrote: “Should Israel Welcome Glenn Beck’s Support?” Which was published first @ www.hudson-ny.org/2374/glenn-beck-israel

What follow his quotes are my rebuttals.

Deshowitz: “All decent people, whether on the left or the right, should support Israel’s right to exist as the democratic nation state of the Jewish people.”

All decent people, whether on the left or the right, should support Palestine’s right to exist and Israel is NOT a democracy!

In the May 28, 1993 edition of Yedioth Ahronoth, Ariel Sharon explained:

“The terms ‘democracy’ or ‘democratic’ are totally absent from the Declaration of Independence. This is not an accident. The intention of Zionism was not to bring democracy, needless to say. It was solely motivated by the creation in Eretz-Isrel of a Jewish state belonging to all the Jewish people and to the Jewish people alone. This is why any Jew of the Diaspora has the right to immigrate to Israel and to become a citizen of Israel.”

Jeff Halper, American Israeli, co-founder and coordinator of Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions and Professor of Anthropology wrote:

“An ethnocracy is the opposite of a democracy, although it might incorporate some elements of democracy such as universal citizenship and elections. It arises when one particular group-the Jews in Israel, the Russians in Russia, the Protestants in pre-1972 Northern Ireland, the whites in apartheid South Africa, the Shi’ite Muslims in Iran, the Malay in Malaysia and, if they had their way, the white Christian fundamentalists in the US-seize control of the government and armed forces in order to enforce a regime of exclusive privilege over other groups in what is in fact a multi-ethnic or multi-religious society. Ethnocracy, or ethno-nationalism, privileges ethnos over demos, whereby one’s ethnic affiliation, be it defined by race, descent, religion, language or national origin, takes precedence over citizenship in determining to whom a county actually ‘belongs.'” [3]

Deshowitz: “All decent people should support Israel’s right to defend its civilians from terrorist attacks.”

Indeed and decent people should also be able to read this chart courtesy of ifamericansknew.org

Deshowitz: “All reasonable people should favor a just peace that assures Israel’s ability to thrive in a dangerous neighborhood and to defend its borders.”

Israel has NO declared borders and reasonable people should also be able to read a map-but they will not find the over 500 Palestinian villages and towns that were wiped [ethnically cleansed] from the so called holy land beginning in 1948, when Israel became a State:

Dershowitz: “The Jewish state is demonized by the hard left in America, by virtually the entire left in much of Europe, and by most of the left and right in Ireland, Norway and Sweden. Its right to exist is denied by a high proportion of Arabs and Muslims, and most of the Arab and Muslim nations do not have diplomatic relations with Israel.”

President Harry Truman crossed out the word “Jewish state” on the draft of the Establishment of Israel that was cabled him and substituted the “State of Israel” before he signed onto it.

Israel’s establishment was also contingent upon upholding the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Read more…

Dershowitz: “In many circles, anti-Zionism easily morphs into anti-Semitism.”

According to Webster’s Dictionary a SEMITE is a member of any of a number of peoples of ancient southwestern Asia including the Akkadians, Phoenicians, Hebrews, and Arabs or a descendant of these peoples, thus Palestinians are as much a Semite as any Jew!

Dershowitz: “The general assembly of the United Nations has become the world’s new Der Sturmer, whose podium hosts, and many of whose audience members cheer, virulent anti-Semites such as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.”

In 2006, Virginia Tilley, Professor of political science wrote:

“In his October 2005 speech, Mr. Ahmadinejad never used the word ‘map’ or the term ‘wiped off.’ According to Farsi-language experts like Juan Cole and even right-wing services like MEMRI, what he actually said was ‘this regime that is occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time.’

“In this speech to an annual anti-Zionist conference, Mr. Ahmadinejad was being prophetic, not threatening. He was citing Imam Khomeini, who said this line in the 1980s-a period when Israel was actually selling arms to Iran, so apparently it was not viewed as so ghastly then.

“Mr. Ahmadinejad had just reminded his audience that the Shah’s regime, the Soviet Union, and Saddam Hussein had all seemed enormously powerful and immovable, yet the first two had vanished almost beyond recall and the third now languished in prison.

“So, too, the ‘occupying regime’ in Jerusalem would someday be gone. His message was, in essence: ‘This too shall pass.'”

Dershowitz: “One need not accept all of Beck’s positions on Israel—and I certainly do not—in order to agree with him that support of Israel is one of the great moral issues of the 21st Century.”

Indeed it is a moral issue and as Jeff Halper also explained:

“This conflict impacts the global community and especially everyone in the USA.
“Tony Blair said 70% of all the conflicts in the world can be traced back to the Israeli Palestinian conflict. If we do fix this conflict it would be a tremendous step forward in global reconciliation. This whole issue is based on Human Rights and it is a global issue requiring global intervention.

“It has been said that the Israelis do not love this land, they just want to possess it. There have been three stages to make this occupation permanent. The first was to establish the facts on the ground; the settlements. There are ½ million Israeli’s and four million Palestinians here. They have been forced into Bantustan; truncated mini states; prison states. It is apartheid and Bush and Hillary are both willing collaborators.

“In 1977, Sharon came in with a mandate, money and resources to make the Israeli presence in the West Bank irreversible. The second stage began in April 2004 when America approved the Apartheid/Convergence/Realignment Plan and eight settlement blocs. This is just like South Africa!

“The Bush Sharon letter exchange guaranteed that the USA considers the settlements non-negotiable. The Convergence Plan and The Wall create the borders and that is what defines Bantustans. Congress ratified the Bush plan and only Senator Byrd of West Virginia voted no and nine House Representatives.

“Israel has set up a matrix of control; a thick web of settlements guaranteed to make the occupation permanent by establishing facts on the ground. Israel denies there is an occupation, so everything is reduced to terrorism. It is our job to insist upon the human rights issue, for occupied people have International Law on their side.” [4]

Dershowitz: “I welcome the support of religious Christians who love Israel for religious reasons. I abhor the ignorant and misguided efforts of other Christians, such as Jimmy Carter and Desmond Tutu, who misuse their faith against the Jewish state. I hope that more Christians will follow in Beck’s footsteps and take the time to visit Israel. They will see Christianity thriving in Israel.”

In 1947, 20% of the total population of the Holy Land was Christian.

Today, less than 1.3% of the total population of that troubled piece of real estate is Christian and unless things change very soon, Holy Land churches will soon be nothing more than museums for the Christian Exodus coupled with their low birth rates may be the end of Christianity in the Holy Land.

Jimmy Carter’s Plan for Peace in the Holy Land calls for President Obama to courageously address the complex conflict with details resolved by the two sides but which follows the following framework:

1. A demilitarized Palestinian state, with Israeli forces being replaced by an international security force that will allow freedom of peaceful movement and that will respond to any violence from either side.

2. Mutually acceptable modifications, with land swaps to the 1967 border which allows Israelis in and around Jerusalem to remain, but a withdrawal of all other settlers from the West Bank.

3. A shared Jerusalem that will be the capital of both states.

4. The right of Palestinian refugees to return to the West Bank and Gaza and compensation to those with proven claims to the land.

ON April 29, 2002, South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu spoke about how “very deeply distressed” he was by what he observed in his recent visit to the Holy Land, “It reminded me so much of what happened in South Africa.”

The Nobel peace laureate saw “the humiliation of the Palestinians at checkpoints and roadblocks, suffering like us when young white police officers prevented us from moving about. Referring to Americans, he added, “People are scared in this country to say wrong is wrong because the Jewish lobby is powerful—very powerful. Well, so what? The apartheid government was very powerful, but today it no longer exists.” [5]

Dershowitz: “Consider Nelson Mandela’s alliances with some of most brutal dictatorships (Libya, Cuba, Syria) and supporters of terrorism (P.L.O., Iran) while he was engaged in his just struggle against the evils of apartheid. I do not recall the left condemning Mandela for doing what he had to do. But the same left was unforgiving in Israel when it was forced to make some strategic military deals with South Africa, while strongly opposing its apartheid policies.”

“An apartheid society is much more than just a ‘settler colony’. It involves specific forms of oppression that actively strip the original inhabitants of any rights at all, whereas civilian members of the invader caste are given all kinds of sumptuous privileges.” [6]

On May 14, 1948, The Declaration of the establishment of Israel affirmed that, “The State of Israel will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel: it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion it will guarantee freedom of religion [and] conscience and will be faithful to the Charter of the United Nations.”

However, reality intrudes, for “The truth, which is known to all; through its army, the government of Israel practices a brutal form of Apartheid in the territory it occupies. Its army has turned every Palestinian village and town into a fenced-in, or blocked-in, detention camp.”- Shulamit Aloni, Israeli Minister of Education, quoted in Yediot Acharonot , December 20, 2006.

In 1953, South Africa’s Prime Minister Daniel Malan became the first foreign head of government to visit Israel and he returned home with the message that Israel could be a source of inspiration for white South Africans.
In 1962, South African Prime Minister Verwoerd declared that Jews “took Israel from the Arabs after the Arabs had lived there for a thousand years. In that I agree with them, Israel, like South Africa, is an apartheid state.”

On August 1, 1967, Israel enacted the Agricultural Settlement Law, which bans Israeli citizens of non-Jewish nationality- Palestinian Arabs- from working on Jewish National Fund lands, well over 80% of the land in Israel.

Knesset member Uri Avnery stated: “This law is going to expel Arab cultivators from the land that was formerly theirs and was handed over to the Jews.”

On April 4, 1969, General Moshe Dayan is quoted in the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz telling students at Israel’s Technion Institute that “Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You don’t even know the names of these Arab villages, and I don’t blame you, because these geography books no longer exist. Not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either… There is not one single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population.”

On April 28, 1971: C. L. Sulzberger, writing in The New York Times, quoted South African Prime Minister John Vorster as saying that Israel is faced with an apartheid problem, namely how to handle its Arab inhabitants.

Sulzberger wrote: “Both South Africa and Israel are in a sense intruder states. They were built by pioneers originating abroad and settling in partially inhabited areas.”

On September 13, 1978, in Washington, D.C., The Camp David Accords were signed by Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and witnessed by President Jimmy Carter.

The Accords reaffirmed U.N. Resolutions 242 and 338, which prohibited acquisition of land by force, called for Israel’s withdrawal of military and civilian forces from the West Bank and Gaza, and prescribed “full autonomy” for the inhabitants of the territories.

Prime Minister Begin promised Carter to freeze all settlement activity during the subsequent peace talks.

Once back in Israel, however, the Israeli prime minister continued to confiscate, settle, and fortify the occupied territories.

On September 13, 1985, Rep. George Crockett (D-MI), after visiting the Israeli-occupied West Bank, compares the living conditions there with those of South African blacks and concluded that the West Bank is an instance of apartheid that no one in the U.S. is talking about.

In July 2000, President Bill Clinton convened the Camp David II Peace Summit between Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat.

Clinton—not Barak—offered Arafat the withdrawal of some 40,000 Jewish settlers, leaving more than 180,000 in 209 settlements, all of which are interconnected by roads that cover approximately 10% of the occupied land. Effectively, this divides the West Bank into at least two non-contiguous areas and multiple fragments. Palestinians would have no control over the borders around them, the air space above them, or the water reserves under them.

Barak called it a generous offer. Arafat refused to sign.

On August 31, 2001l in Durban, South Africa, up to 50,000 South Africans marched in support of the Palestinian people.

In their “Declaration by South Africans on Apartheid and the Struggle for Palestine” they proclaimed:

“We, South Africans who lived for decades under rulers with a colonial mentality, see Israeli occupation as a strange survival of colonialism in the 21st century. Only in Israel do we hear of ‘settlements’ and ‘settlers.’

“Only in Israel do soldiers and armed civilian groups take over hilltops, demolish homes, uproot trees and destroy crops, shell schools, churches and mosques, plunder water reserves, and block access to an indigenous population’s freedom of movement and right to earn a living.

“These human rights violations were unacceptable in apartheid South Africa and are an affront to us in apartheid Israel.”

October 23, 2001: Ronnie Kasrils, a Jewish Minister in the South African government, co-authored the petition “Not in My Name” which was signed by some 200 members of South Africa’s Jewish community and reads:

“It becomes difficult, from a South African perspective, not to draw parallels with the oppression expressed by Palestinians under the hand of Israel and the oppression experienced in South Africa under apartheid rule.”

Three years later, Kasrils went to the Occupied Territories and concluded:

“This is much worse than apartheid. Israeli measures, the brutality, make apartheid look like a picnic. We never had jets attacking our townships. We never had sieges that lasted month after month. We never had tanks destroying houses. We had armored vehicles and police using small arms to shoot people but not on this scale.”

American academic, Sasha Polakow-Suransky, wrote in “The Unspoken Alliance: Israel’s secret alliance with Apartheid South Africa” that Israeli officials “formally offered to sell South Africa some of the nuclear-capable Jericho missiles in its arsenal” and that PW Botha, South Africa’s defense minister asked Shimon Peres-who was then Israel’s defense minister-for nuclear warheads.

Peres offered them “in three sizes” which are understood as conventional, chemical and nuclear weapons.

The two signed a broad-ranging agreement governing military ties between the two countries that included a clause declaring that “the very existence of this agreement” was to remain secret.

On 4 June 1975, Peres and Botha met in Zurich and by then, the Jericho project had been renamed Chalet. The top-secret minutes of that meeting recorded that:

“Minister Botha expressed interest in a limited number of units of Chalet subject to the correct payload being available…Minister Peres said the correct payload was available in three sizes. Minister Botha expressed his appreciation.” [7]

Botha did not go ahead with the deal because of the cost and the fact that final approval was dependent on Israel’s prime minister.

South Africa did build its own nuclear bombs and also provided much of the yellowcake uranium that Israel required to develop its nuclear arsenal.

The documents also confirmed that former South African naval commander, Dieter Gerhardt admitted there was an agreement between Israel and South Africa called “Chalet” that involved an offer by Israel to arm eight Jericho missiles with “special warheads” understood as atomic bombs.

“Some weeks before Peres made his offer of nuclear warheads to Botha, the two defense ministers signed a covert agreement governing the military alliance known as Secment. It was so secret that it included a denial of its own existence: ‘It is hereby expressly agreed that the very existence of this agreement shall be secret and shall not be disclosed by either party.’”

That ‘secret’ military agreement signed by Shimon Peres and P W Botha of South Africa can be seen here:

  • Revealed: how Israel offered to sell South Africa nuclear weapons

Come this September, the U.N. General Assembly will vote on whether to recognize Palestine as an independent and sovereign state with full rights in the United Nations.

The UN was the body that carved up the so-called holy land.

Here’s hoping that come this September the UN will do justice for Palestine which requires that Israel be held accountable to its promises.

Here’s hoping that we the people of the world will never forget that all life is interconnected and that what is good for Americans is good for Israelis, Palestinians, and Everyone in the World:

  1. As I have said, this is a small business tool. It’s not just a miracle piece of equipment. It could easily develop into one more expense if you do not put the effort and time into finding out how to take advantage of it.

  2. This is very interesting, You are a very skilled blogger. I’ve joined your rss feed and look forward to seeking more of your fantastic post. Also, I’ve shared your site in my social networks!

  3. Is it spelt schmuck or is it shmuck?
    Shmuckology needs correct spelling or Schmuckology.
    We goys used this term all the time on streets of brooklyn,NY-we wuz Irish,Italian,anglo,german,pole,lebanese,jewish,czech,chinese

  4. So by definition does Dershowitz qualify as a schmuck? I do know he is a prick (common Brooklyn term).

    • Dershowitz is so freakin rabid he doesn’t even know. The guy is a supine, sycophantic, boot licking, cancer. He’ll do anything no matter how absurd to promote zionism.

  6. Good news is – all three of them are very very affraid of United States turning into an Islamic State and Europe turning into a Muslim-majority continent.

    As ‘good Christians’ and a ‘true Jew’ – all three want the anti-Muslim world to protect Israel from run over by Islamic Republic of Iran – or Lebanese Islamic Resistance Hizbullah.

    Gordon Duff should be glad to know that all those three Ziocons hate Qaddafi as much he does!

    Back to my Coca-Cola bottle!!

    • Sniff this:

      My friend-an American in Syria emailed me that the Philippine government has called for all their nationals to leave the country.

      He also spoke to the British council and was told the British government is gearing up to evacuate all Brits to Turkey at a days notice and the money had already been sent and deposited.

      My friend added:

      “With September right around the corner I have no doubt that something very bad is brewing and will probably be here before the U.N. vote for Palestinian statehood.”

      MUCH MORE on this story coming asap!!!

  7. But this is the same tired drivel from Eileen that all anti-Semites drool.

  8. Great post Eileen. Keep up the good work.

  9. If my rudimentary yiddish understanding from a german background still works- they are both stupid and pricks?

    • I do so miss Yiddish. Hebrew sounds like shit in comparison. Yiddish is a real Jewish language with feeling. Hebrew….like Arabic with a mouth full of rocks.
      g

      • I can’t get behind it, stolen mongrel language if you ask me. I live in south Fla and I cringe when I hear it. One of the downsides of being a history nut.

  10. it was a perfect gathering, according the the Guradian. Many empty seats, bunch of US congressman purchased by AIPAC and a love fest of religious freaks with the hard core zionists who view their “christian zionist brothers” as goyim, a second class citizen. They are happy, though that these useful idiots would use American tax payer money and soldiers to fight their wars.
    What is going to happen when America is broke and Israel has not other friends left?

    • They’ll just turn on their US benefactor like they did Germany and flee to another host nation probably China. Meanwhile the US and its citizens are on the hook for all the global damage we’ve been involved in on their behalf over the last sixty years.

  11. Nice piece, Ms. Fleming, very strong. With regard to Christian zionists, however, I think you still haven’t really got it, yet.

    Christians are divided into two basic camps:

    1.) Those who realize that the US has been played by Israel into fighting its wars in the ME and who believe that we should end our support for Israel, at the very least or declare war on Israel as the enemy of the US, at most.

    2.) Those who realize that the US has been played by Israel into fighting its wars in the ME but who believe that God will eventually send the zionists back to Hell, where they came from, but that in the meantime, fate is immutable and can’t be changed by mortal men, so they’ll wait for Christ to send the “Jews” packing for a long, very hot, vacation.

    Either way, Christians know who did it and know who will suffer the consequences. They don’t agree on the details of how Israel is goin’ down, but they know it is OVAH for the zionists.

    Seems to me it’s about as relevant as arguing whether Obama is working for the zionists directly or is just so weak that he won’t stand up to them. Either way, the effect is almost identical.

    Thanks for stepping up to the plate. This piece was a solid hit.

    • Thanks DaveE, but please know there is another Christian camp: ANARCHISTS and we take Jesus very seriously but we QUESTION and follow our conscience, and thus we DISSENT from Government and Institutional authorities.

      Anarchy is best understood as Rebellion against UNJUST laws.

      The Yang/male force of anarchy resists authority and causes disorder and is socially and politically incorrect by the norms of the status quo for it seeks the higher ground of justice.

      The Yin/feminine force of anarchy births a new order out of the chaos and chaos is creativity in action.

      Christian anarchists know inner freedom comes by way of doing the teachings of Jesus, for Christianity is more than a religion, it offers a new vision of life and a wide awake way of living it!

      Christian anarchists are critical of all outer authority, be it Church or State.

      Good and evil cut through every human heart and all Free Will means is that we get to choose which rules.

      All individuals have free will and thus all are free to choose whether or not to also seek and knock on the door of our own heart that Jesus stands behind and that is the door of Conscience!

      Jesus envisioned a society based on love and tolerance, which is completely incompatible with war and all violence.

      When Jesus was mocked, whipped and nailed to a cross and remained NONVIOLENT he was over throwing the status quo of violent retaliation and eye-for-an-eye mentality.

      Not many of his ‘followers’ have been able to drink from that cup of The Prince of Peace, which is another name for Jesus Christ who commanded his followers to LOVE all people and to forgive ones enemies in order to be forgiven-NOT bomb, shoot at, torture or militarily occupy them!

      If there be a Christian Manifesto beyond the Sermon on the Mount, it is Leo Tolstoy’s “The Kingdom of God Is Within You” and as Dorothy Day, a 20th century Christian Anarchist [and 'patron saint' of my website] understood God is LOVE and “Love is not the starving of whole populations. Love is not the bombardment of open cities. Love is not killing. Our manifesto is the Sermon on the Mount, which means that we will try to be peacemakers.”

      And so, I offer my spin on that Manifesto:

      About 2,000 years ago, when Christ was about 33, he hiked up a hill and sat down under an olive tree and began to teach the people;

      “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.”

      In other words: it is those who know their own spiritual poverty, their own limitations and ‘sins’ honestly and trust God loves them in spite of themselves who already live in the Kingdom of God.

      How comforted we will all be, when we see, we haven’t got a clue, as to the depth and breadth of pure love and mercy of The Divine Mystery of The Universe.

      God’s name in ancient Aramaic is Abba which means Daddy as much as Mommy and He/She: The Lord has said, “My ways are not your ways. My thoughts are not yours.” -Isaiah 55:8

      Christ proclaimed more: “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”

      The essence of meek is to be patient with ignorance, slow to anger and never hold a grudge. In other words: how comforted you will be when you also know humility; when you know yourself, the good and the bad, for both cut through every human heart.

      “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, they will be filled.”

      In other words: how comforted you will be when your greatest desire is to do what “God requires, and he has already told you what that is; BE JUST, BE MERCIFUL and walk humbly with your Lord.”-Micah 6:8

      “Blessed are the merciful, they will be shown mercy.”

      In other words: how comforted you will all be when you choose to return only kindness to your ‘enemy.’

      “For with the measure you measure against another, it will be measured back to you” Christ warns his disciples as he explains the law of karma in Luke 6:27-38.

      “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they see God.”

      In other words: how comforted you will be when you WAKE UP and see God is already within you, within every man, every woman and every child. The Supreme Being is everywhere, the Alpha and Omega, beginning and end. Beyond The Universe -and yet so small; within the heart of every atom.

      “Blessed are The Peacemakers: THEY shall be called the children of God.”

      And what a wonderful world it would be when we all seek peace by pursuing justice; for there can be none without the other.

      “Blessed are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires, theirs is The Kingdom of Heaven.”

      And one fine day the lion will lie down with The Lamb and man will make war no more; and create the Kingdom of God on planet earth.

      PS: The only ‘sin’ is selfishness.

      • And the powers that be love to see that. I don’t ever want to offend people like yourself but, Karl rove and the rest of the think tank ass*oles are depending on you for just those beliefs. If I were anything, it’s closest to Bhudism, and I know they shoot back (mortars at minimum). Ghandi held those beliefs as well. If the meek inherit anything it will be for the fact that the opposition ran out of bullets and politicians. With respect, I’m sincere in respecting your beliefs Eileen.

        • And most sincerely I say the best Christians ARE Buddhists!

          Thomas Merton, Trappist monk, poet, social critic, and mystic, said: “I see no contradiction between Buddhism and Christianity. I intend to become as good a Buddhist as I can.” [Steindl-Rast, 1969, "Recollection of Thomas Merton's Last Days in the West"]

          The sorry state of US Christianity today is its lack of depth and a rigid fundamentalism [meaning one who has closed off to new thought] that see non-Christians as targets for conversion.

          Merton understood that Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Islam all shared his belief that we all are searching for the ultimate truth.

  12. Don’t forget the big phony, Rush Limbaum as well.

    • And don’t forget that we the people are suppose to be the government and we have rights we have NOT yet realized and seized:

      “We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all [people] are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights…that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among [people] deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; and, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the RIGHT of the people to ALTER or to ABOLISH it.” -July 4, 1776, The Declaration of Independence.

  13. And don’t forget to add Paul Harvy wannabe Mike Schmuckabee to the list

  14. http://mantiqaltayr.wordpress.com/2011/08/23/congressman-erik-paulsen-is-in-israel – 90% of so-called “Jews” are ashkenazim TURKO-MONGOLIAN proselytes to Talmudic Judaim, an Anti-Israelite/Anti-Israel “Religion” literally a stool sculpture deity cult, Dershowitz being the poster boy for this psychopathic cult…of Truth Haters.

  15. I remember some time ago watching a video with Beck in it and noticing his huge Skull and Bones Cumber bun with #322 on it. Beck to me appears to be a 9/11 Salesman, he quickly starts using liberal tactics when 9/11 is mentioned to him. My quick do you want the NWO to control your life test. (1) Do you support the war on Drugs, (2) Do you support the war on Terror, (3) Do you support the war on Poverty. Notice all 3 are non winnable wars, and all involve you loosing lots of rights or money or both in the process

    • Beck is a “Gatekeeper.” He starts out heading for the truth, then stops well before it as to say, “Nothing to see here citizens, keep on walking.” Beck, like O’Reilly are terrified of the truth about 9/11. They both suck up the US Regime’s story like pigs at a toilet. O’Reilly even called us “Pinheads” for questioning the bogus laughable impossible story of 9/11. As for these three issues: 1. The war on drugs is a charade for public consumption. The drug trade is run from the top-down, starting with the crown of England. Where do people think they get all of their billions?
      2. The war on terror is a figment of Bush’s imagination to cause non-existant bogeymen to dance in Americans and others heads. Hello Patriot act, airport scanners and going to second base with TSA cronies.
      3. There is no war on poverty, only a very long and calculated plan to cause poverty. TPTB want all of us to be a third world country eating scraps out of their hand = NWO.

      • You all give me hope that Edward R. Murrow’s prediction might just NOT be the final word.

        In 1958, Murrow warned that as television became more about entertainment and not about shows of enlightenment, this republic would be dumbed down;

        Only an informed and engaged citizenry can preserve a democracy, which thrives on dissent and I THANK ALL dissenters of the status quo- which must go and GODSPEED on THAT!

      • These people aren’t stupid, they know exactly what they are doing. Bush knew what he was doing at the end of the day, he just couldn’t speak well. The feigned stupidity by congress, senate, is for your consumption. They have so many people surrounding them to make sure there isn’t a wrong foot planted anywhere it’s ridiculous. Bush is in office for a few months and he immediately takes August off!?!? That was purely preperation for Bush to absorb what was going to happen on 9-11. The war on terror is surely not a Bush idea, that’s pure Zbignew Bresinski, CFR stuff. Poppey Bush is smart enough to manage things but not smart enough to have those kinds of ideas, to paraphrase Nixon. The thousands of think tanks are the “cloud mind” of CFR, Bilderberger, etc. Right now in the computer world it’s called “Turking”. Getting the minions to drill down or boil down the conclusions of a set of questions for the larger group. Drug running for profit, slavery in the new world, end times scenarios, these are all farmed. Fusion centers in your neighborhoods are exacting these conclusions as you read this. Spend a day reading about fusion centers, I dare you. That’s where the flesh meets the ground. Pure Gestapo. Checka. Erich Honecker. Sleep tight :)

    • Remember this, Beck made almost no money working for FOX news, very little. He was surfing the venue and it didn’t work out, not because FOX didn’t like his drivel, but because it couldn’t be supported by the pukes who watched it. In other words he’s was allowed to find his set on FOX. He was being carried to espouse his platform. Where he lands after that tells you who the enemy is. The fact that Beck made millions from FOX news is not true at all, he rode profit on a contract for his venom that was bought in advance and it worked. That’s called going long on an investment. FOX got their poison across and Beck “Operation Mockingbird” got exposure. Worked famously for them. Trivial it is, but also true. New breed of disinfo artists. The seperation from FOX makes it look like he’s moderate and not crazy, FOX knew blowback was comming from England and he took his leave to continue his BS. “Fruit of the poison tree”, lawyer lingo for all you barristers out there. Murdoch is smart, which pisses me off.

  16. Oops, can do NO wrong……typo, B

  17. Thank you Eileen, but I don’t know which is worse-the atrocities you accurately described or the worlds perpetual denial of them………..Here in America, the I$raelis can do now wrong, they are portrayed as the planets penultimate ‘victim’ in every case…………..sad…B

  18. Nice piece of work.

  19. http://rt.com/usa/news/rick-perry-porn-movie/

    A recent report reveals that Perry invested upwards of $10,000 into Movie Gallery stock, whom, while releasing a bit more family-friendly titles, also helped bring pictures like “Teend Never Say No” to a broader audience by releasing them to their rental stores.

    While that flick hasn’t officially made its way around the offices at RT, we are willing to bet that it might not be the best glowing example of the “abstinence only” sex-education that Perry was pushing in Texas high schools.

    And that’s not even the big finish. It has also been unearthed that Perry signed onto a bill as Texas governor that would protect porno companies from facing “tort suits” for putting products across state lines. That meant higher profits for porn, higher profits for Movie Gallery and, thus, higher profits for Perry.

  20. (Also pertaining to the sad saga of “Weiner’s Weiner”), a more precise term would be “schmeckel”, Eileen. Unfortunately, you can’t cover up a real peckerhead with a kippah, (no matter how hard Beck tries). http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/67544/sundown-beck-announces-jerusalem-syndrome-march/
