Lessons From the USS Liberty

by Bob Johnson

Today, June 8, 2016, is the 49th anniversary of the cowardly and deadly Israeli attacks on the USS Liberty. The repeated Israeli attacks from the air and sea on the American Navy ship killed 33 American sailors and Marines and one American civilian while wounding 174 Americans. This tragic case is offering every American lessons regarding the Jewish state of Israel and US politicians.

After repeatedly attacking the USS Liberty from the air and from the sea, once Israel realized the crew of the USS Liberty had been able to get a message off to the Sixth Fleet that they were under attack, Israel lied and said it was an accident. The survivors know that Israel is lying and that the repeated and deadly attacks by the Jewish state were very deliberate.

US military brass (bureaucrats in uniform) ordered the survivors to remain completely silent about Israel’s war crime. The Commander in Chief at the time, Lyndon Johnson, immediately accepted Israel’s irrational excuse that the attack was a mistake. Johnson even lied about the USS Liberty attack in his autobiography by claiming 10 men were killed instead of 34 and lowering the number of wounded from 174 to 100. (It’s interesting and revealing of LBJ’s complete lack of courage and character that he lied about being under enemy fire and received a Silver Star for gallantry based on that lie.)

It is clear that a lesson being taught to us by the USS Liberty is to never trust politicians or bureaucrats in uniform.

During the attack, Israeli torpedo boats machine-gunned life rafts that the crew of the USS Liberty were putting in the water. This demonstrates a cold-heartedness of Biblical proportions. It’s reminiscent of Deuteronomy 7:2, in which the Jews who wrote the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament claimed God told the Jews,

“And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them;” (Jewish superiority as found in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament is a very harmful and destructive idea.)

The USS Liberty is teaching us about the heartless Jewish state of Israel and that it cannot be expected that such a state that is based on such a twisted mindset as is found in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament would be any different than it is. This cruel way of being is also plainly evident in Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine.

Why would Israel knowingly attack an American Navy ship on June 8, 1967 in international waters? The answer to why Israel attacked the USS Liberty and why politicians in the US government covered it up is probably found in this article from the Navy Times. It states:

Some allege Israel wanted the spy ship sunk to ensure it did not pick up communications showing Israel was planning to seize the Golan Heights from Syria. Others say it was to prevent Liberty from intercepting communications dealing with an alleged Israeli massacre of Egyptian POWs in the Sinai.

Some Liberty survivors and supporters claim the U.S. government covered up the incident to avoid a conflict with Israel that could have cost the Johnson administration support among Jewish voters and supporters. Subsequent administrations and Congresses have avoided a thorough airing of the incident for the same reasons, they say.

Since the war crime Israel committed against the USS Liberty and her crew and against America herself, things have gotten much worse. US politicians from both parties have sold out the US and its people for political gain and selfish advancement. They’ve been stealing tens of BILLIONS of tax dollars from Americans for decades and giving them to the Jewish state.

Just yesterday US National Security Adviser Susan Rice bragged in a speech to the American Jewish Committee Global Forum that under Obama the “single largest military assistance package – with any country – in American history” has been worked out in which US political whores will take from the American people and give to the Jewish state over the next 10 years between $37.5 and $40 BILLION!

In addition to US politicians stealing from Americans and giving to Israel (kind of like a kosher Robin Hood), US politicians started the war against Iraq for Israel’s benefit. This war crime had its roots in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament based neocon movement.

We should never forget the human faces of those the US military and politicians sacrifices for their own selfish benefit and for the benefit of Greater Israel. Here is a link so you can see them and learn about their lives.

    Truth, that’s the opposite of the bureaucrat.

    USS Liberty cover-up is the direct result of israel, AIPAC and jewish lobby’s control of the USA government. The US government still places American service men and women in harms way to protect israel’s interest.

    Since 2008, approximately 120 service men have been stationed at Mount Keren, israel under the pretext operating a radar station that is too complex for the Israelis to operate. Meanwhile israel is supplied with the most sophisticate weapons we possess. Mt Keren is near the Damon nuclear reactor a prime retaliatory target if israel attacks another country. Could the real reason be US soldiers are “human shied” to protect israeli’s interest and that congress is willing to sacrifice for their isreali masters?

    I used to think that these officers, and the ones I have had to deal with, were a disgrace to their uniforms. Until it dawned on me that these types were EXACTLY what the establishment wanted. Then the more history I was able to read (such as the vets encampment in DC razed by Macarther and seconded by Eisenhower) that this has always been the case. Washington was the exception that proved the rule. You could be a good guy and be a good officer, as long as you were on top to start with. Once the entire process became subverted, you would never see a good officer. This truism had to take a back seat in WWII, out of sheer necessity, but came back with a vengence afterward. All this culminated in Nam, when a large number of people “got the word”, and bad officers were getting fragged left and right. The really bad ones never came near enough to the front lines to get at. They knew the score. They stayed in the rear with multiple levels of security to protect them from… us.

    just one small of many (t)reasons why DC needs a wall built around it to keep criminals IN.
    people DO NOT understand it is a foreign country residing within our borders,
    that does not consider its warfare against US as being anything treasonous.
    it has NO REASON to exist, and NO RIGHT to dominate the 50 states.
    just look at the ass clowns in office, and what we’re being allowed to “vote” for!

    Of course LBJ lied. He didn’t want to end up like his predecessor… or Lincoln. You can tell who the good presidents were because the banksters saw fit to bump them off.

    “Have designs already been formed to sever the Union? This great and glorious Republic would soon be broken into a multitude of petty States, without commerce, without credit… loaded with taxes to pay armies… trampled upon by the nations of Europe.”
    ~ President Andrew Jackson, 1837; 1st president with an assassination attempt (officially)

    As bad as Lincoln reuniting the Union by force was, being militarily dominated by England would have been a whole lot worse. Note that anti-serfdom Russia supported Lincoln, and like Lincoln, Tsar Alexander II also wound up assassinated…

    another lesson ….that they will stop at nothing…..and face it folks its all one big scam… Hitler was a Rothschild …it took 2 full blown world wars to construct this counterfeit israel….and they all bow and scrape before an altar of outright evil…a 3rd WW to kill off and cover their tracks…the Supreme Court, the Knesset, Rothschilds Ranch… the money changers that must be thrown out of the temple….get their filthy hands off Jerusalem

      You realize there were legitimate reasons to want “Jews” shipped out of Germany, right? Like how the mostly “Jewish” Bolsheviks had already wrecked Russia and the other Soviet countries…?
      veteranstoday.com/2013/07/24/bolshevism-and-zionism-are-ideologically-indistinguishable/

      By the end of the first world war, the US was chained to the Federal Reserve, Germany was under the NWO’s Weimar Republic, and Tsarist Russia had fallen to the Bolsheviks and eventually the Soviet Union. The game could have been over at that point; however, no plan survives contact with the enemy. When Germany kicked away the Weimar Republic and opposed being ”a colony of slaves at the service of the stranger,” the banking cartel needed a second world war.

      And now that Russia has kicked away the Soviet Union and is again challenging the dystopia, the cartel needs a third world war.
