“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”—George Santayana, Spanish writer and philosopher
…by Jonas E. Alexis
James Madison, back in 1795, prophetically underscored a central point that must be echoed here at this critical time in our history, when the debt ceiling crisis has already reached a point of no return.
Madison declared that “the testimony of all the ages forces us to admit that war is among the most dangerous of all enemies of liberty.”
He moved on to say that “good citizens” must “keep a watchful, tho’ not censorious eye, over that branch of the government which derives the greatest accession of power and importance from the armies, offices, and expenses, which compose the equipage of war.”
Madison perceived that any society that uses “the terror of the sword” to get things done will end up supporting “a real domination of the few, under an apparent liberty of the many. Such a government, wherever to be found, is an imposter.”
Madison, of course, did not know that he was writing the panorama of the twenty-first century, when the dreadful few took over America by a political storm.
It therefore behooves us to ask an important question right here at the outset: who are those people who are pushing America into perpetual wars? Who are those dreadful predators who never seem to get tired of manipulating U.S. foreign policy and politics?
They are the neo-Bolsheviks/Zionists/neoconservatives in Israel and in America. Those predators are largely Jewish political and intellectual cells which have progressively become the number one enemy of America and much of the Western world. They became almost politically invincible when “The Modern Age” has inexorably become “the Jewish Age” and the “Jewish Century.” Now the West is paying a huge price.
Contrary to what James P. Farwell and Rafal Rohozinski of the National Interest have recently propounded, Mexico is not America’s number one threat.
If there is a country that has internally destroyed America’s politics and economy and social status in the world, if there is a country that has continued to play double standards in the face of evidence, that country is Israel. And if there is a political force on earth that has created havoc in much of the Western world, that force is the Zionist/neoconservative movement.
Yes, the U.S. has had and still has problems with Mexico, but who is spreading drugs like wildfire in that country? Who is igniting terrorist activities in order to keep the rotten corpse of Zionism alive? Who is violating the law in order to produce a stench in the nose of virtually every American? It is none other than Jewish bankers and subversive vampires such as Goldman Sachs.
Moreover, who is stealing your email contact list? Is it Mexico? The answer is the NSA, another Israeli cell. The Washington Post itself declared:
“During a single day last year, the NSA’s Special Source Operations branch collected 444,743 e-mail address books from Yahoo, 105,068 from Hotmail, 82,857 from Facebook, 33,697 from Gmail and 22,881 from unspecified other providers… Those figures, described as a typical daily intake in the document, correspond to a rate of more than 250 million per year.”
As Snowden recently declared, the NSA’s predatory activity is what makes Americans less safe.
Farwell and Rohozinski rightly documents that Mexico’s criminal activities, most specifically with drugs, “generate perhaps $30 to $40 billion a year in illicit profits. And the price has been horrendous. Between 2007 and 2012, around 47,000 Mexicans were killed in the drug war.”
But Farwell and Rohozinski do not want to tell us the deep and ideological forces that control the drug trafficking business between the U.S. and Mexico. Farwell and Rohozinski write,
“As neighbors, we should be concerned. But there’s even more to it than that: The drug cartels pose a direct threat to American and Canadian security.”
Keep in mind that Farwell and Rohozinski are both scholars. But it seems that both individuals are running away from the actual root of the problem, namely, the Jewish forces behind the drug cartels.
Taking care of the symptom does little to fixing real the problem itself. Once Goldman Sachs has been dethroned from their economic pedestal, drug problems with Mexico will plummet. But Farwell and Rohozinski did not even suggest that Goldman Sachs is behind the drug industry. Let us hope that they did this ignorantly.
MADISON WAS RIGHT
If you think that Madison’s assessment is not meticulously accurate, think about the war in Iraq. Back in 2008, some economists thought that the Iraq invasion would cost only $3 trillion.
Yet it has been estimated that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan could cost at least $6 trillion. Just two wars! The million-dollar question is this: Who is going to pay for all of this? George W. Bush? Dick Cheney? Donald Rumsfeld? Condoleezza Rice? Barack Obama? John McCain? Lindsey Graham? The neoconservative hawks?
No. People like Bush were used as puppets, and they all became best-sellers, marshalling lies after lies and saying that both wars were inevitable. So who is actually going to pay for the wars?
Let us turn to Bob Dreyfuss of The Nation:
“Your children, and your grandchildren, will be paying billions upon billions of dollars for George W. Bush’s criminally misguided wars and for Barack Obama’s ill-advised escalation of the war in Afghanistan…”
In other words, America’s children and grandchildren are going to beg the dreadful few for a piece of bread in the future—unless a drastic action takes place, unless the dreadful few are removed from their political post, unless America stops sending the Zionist regime in Israel at least $3 billion every year, and unless the Western world stops listening to Netanyahu’s bold lies.
We have said again and again that the West needs to wake up precisely because Jewish revolutionaries seriously think that if the goyim are not reduced to abject servitude, Judaism’s goals cannot be accomplished. Baruch Levy, one of Karl Marx’s correspondents, put it quite bluntly:
“The Jewish people taken collectively shall be its own Messias…In this new organization of humanity, the sons of Israel now scattered over the whole surface of the globe…shall everywhere become the ruling element without opposition….
“The governments of the nations forming the Universal or World-Republic shall all thus pass, without any effort, into Jewish hands thanks to the victory of the proletariat….
“Thus shall the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, that, when the Messianic epoch shall have arrived, the Jews will control the wealth of all the nations of the earth.”
If you think that Levy was just having a bad day, once again pay close attention to what Rabbi Ovadia Yosef said before he passed away. Yosef was never challenged for explicitly declaring that the goyim were created to serve Jews.
In fact, the Times of Israel tells us that “over 800,000 pack Jerusalem to mourn Yosef’s passing.” But if Levy’s and Yosef’s testimonies are not enough, let us take a look at some of the political events that took place last year.
JEWISH MESSIANIC POLITICS
Both the neoconservative machine and AIPAC literally handcuffed U.S. officials to either stop Iran from acquiring nuclear energy or face another war in the Middle East.
Yet more than five million of decent Americans were out of job by the end of spring of 2012; what is infinitely incredible, the government told them that they would cut their unemployment funding.
Some experts had hoped that the end of May 2012 would have been a relief for many, but it was shown that unemployment rose from 8.1 percent from the previous month to 8.2 percent.
Moreover, entire schools or programs at major universities such as the University of California had to be cut because there was not enough money. In 2011, State education officials asked the financial manager for Detroit Public Schools to shut down half of the existing schools.
Meanwhile, tuition kept increasing, and class sizes kept doubling at major universities. New York City officials also did plan to shut down three charter high schools that have had a long history of financial and management problems. On top of that, young people with college degrees found it hard to get a decent job.
In other words, useless and detrimental wars in the Middle East were more important than the average American.
In the political realm, when the IAEA was making progress toward having some serious conversation with Iran, Israel and the Zionist machine kept saying that Iran was deceiving the West, despite the fact that both U.S. intelligence and Israeli communities kept repeating that Iran was not developing nuclear weapons.
Netanyahu, for his part, blamed Western powers for even trying to come up with a reasonable proposal with Iran. Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya’alon said something similar, declaring that Iran was playing game with the West while it was secretly building nuclear bombs.
During a particular talk among diplomats, Iranian officials meticulously crafted their argument on the Non-Proliferation Treaty, a treaty that has been acknowledged by all Western powers. The Treaty acknowledges “the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination.”
Iran also made it clear that its nuclear program will not exceed 20 percent, which is right in line with the Treaty itself. Yet the Zionist regime both in Israel and America said that Iran was being unreasonable.
This was no surprise at all, for Iran has tried to reach out to the Zionist regime in Israel and in America back in 2004 and 2005; Iran was even ready to compromise its nuclear program and even convert all its nuclear energy to fuel rods if the U.S. and much of the West would support such an enterprise.
Under such a program, the IAEA would be free to come and check any undeclared facilities. Some officials in England were even willing to admit that Iran was certainly reaching out to the West. British representative to the IAEA and member of the British delegation to Paris Peter Jenkins declared, “All of us were impressed by the proposal.”
But the U.S., under Bush, dismissed the offer and wanted Iran to shut down all its nuclear programs . England followed suit. Jenkins declared,
“The British objective was to eliminate entirely Iran’s enrichment capability. I remember we couldn’t even allow Iran to have 20 centrifuges for R&D (research and development) purposes, because we ourselves had mastered the technology with even fewer than that.”
After months of propaganda by the Zionist machine both in Israel and America, Western powers denied Iran the right to even keep the 20 percent uranium for medical and power plant purposes. Iranian officials, then, refused to give up that 20 percent for good reason, saying that
“We have no reason to cede on 20 percent, because we produce only as much of the 20 percent fuel as we need. No more, no less.”
Right after the second-round talk with Iran, one unidentified U.S. official declared, “Obviously that was not something we were prepared to do.” That “something” was giving Iran the right to have uranium up to 20 percent, even though this is not against the Non-Proliferation Treaty.
In order to maintain that position, the IAEA in particular had to come up with the idea that Iran wass building hundreds of enrichment machines to increase their uranium capabilities. The IAEA finally sided with the Zionist regime, that Iran was being unreasonable.
Obviously that declared that the Zionist regime was not really interested in any diplomatic dialogue. Some Western officials saw the illogical leap of this but they remained silent. The only country that was quite vocal in their stand against going to war on a sovereign country such as Iran was Russia.
Moreover, it has been reported that 20 percent of “highly enriched uranium” is not enough to build nuclear weapons. 90 percent or more is needed, and there was no rigorous evidence which even remotely suggested that Iran was in the process of reaching that number.
Some scientists, like Clinton Bastin, argue that Iran cannot reach that number at all. Bastin, the head of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, is a nuclear scientist who also served as a Marine in World War II. Bastin declared that Iran wanted to use uranium to build nuclear power point, and it even wanted to buy five nuclear plants from the United States in the 1970s.
The United States promised they would sell them, but later denied to do so. As a result, Iran cancelled its deal with the United States and looked elsewhere, particularly to Russia, which was more than happy to help.
Ever since, Iran has been committed to building its own nuclear power plant, but the Zionist regime in Israel tried to persuade the entire Western world that Iran was building nuclear weapons, despite the fact that U.S. intelligence officials and even some Israeli officials and intelligence agencies, including the Mossad, have repeatedly declared that Iran has not continued to work on nuclear weapons.
And even by March 2012, U.S. intelligence agencies continued to believe that Iran was not working on nuclear weapons.
Bastin also declared that many of the inspectors at the IAEA are not scientists and are not familiar with nuclear chemicals, and they are more likely to be driven by ideology than actually evidence.
It must be clear that the 20 percent uranium is legitimate and legal under the Non-Proliferation Treaty, which again Iran has signed and Israel has not.
Catherine Ashton, foreign minister for the European Union, made it very clear that Iran indeed had a right “to the peaceful use of nuclear power.”
Here is the interesting fact: in the 1960s the United States sold Iran a research reactor and weapons-grade uranium to set up nuclear fuel along with atomic power plants in Iran. The same reactor “still operates, supplying isotopes used in the medical treatment of 800,000” of Iranians every year.
Since the reactor itself was dependent upon other fuel reactors, which the United States could and still can provide, Iran asked the United States for help in 2010. Bad move. In response, the United States asked for more sanctions, even though Iran’s intention was to use that scientific enterprise for medical research.
INDIA, NORTH KOREA, AND THE ZIONIST REGIME
It just so happened that within the same period, India tested its nuclear weapons. They faced no serious challenge from the international community for doing so. India’s missiles, we were told, were able to reach even China.
Pakistan did the same thing by the end of May of 2012. Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf declared then, “We don’t want war, but we are ready for war.” Not even the neoconservative warmongers were concerned about this.
What was interesting was that before North Korea launched their failed attempt, they even invited a number of Western representatives and journalists to witness it.
On top of that, within a few days North Korea sent a dire message to South Korea saying that they would reduce the South to “ashes.” The North declared that they will use “unprecedented peculiar means and methods of our own style,” which they say would take only a few minutes.
The North also relentlessly lambasted the then South Korean president, Lee Myung-bak, calling him names like “rats.” The North declared that “The special actions of our revolutionary armed forces will start soon to meet the reckless challenge of the group of traitors.”
With respect to America, the North declared that their “powerful mobile weapons” could strike the U.S. “at a single blow.”
The North Korean act was indeed condemned by the U.S. and Britain. But no neoconservative even remotely suggested that the U.S. ought to have bombed North Korea.
By the end of spring of 2012, North Korea once again declared that it would continue to “boost nuclear deterrent” despite sanctions.
It was reported by Amnesty International that North Korea has routinely brutalized, tortured and shot at political prisoners even without trials. The report declared in 2012:
“Credible reports estimated that up to 200,000 prisoners were held in horrific conditions in six sprawling political prison camps, including the notorious Yodok facility.
“Thousands were imprisoned in at least 180 other detention facilities. Most were imprisoned without trial or following grossly unfair trials and on the basis of forced confessions.
“Men, women and children in the camps were tortured and ill-treated, including by being forced to work in dangerous conditions. The combination of hazardous forced labour, inadequate food, beatings, totally inadequate medical care and unhygienic living conditions, resulted in prisoners falling ill, and a large number died in custody or soon after release.
“The government continued to deny the existence of political prison camps. In July, there were unconfirmed reports that the authorities had either executed by firing squad or killed in staged traffic accidents 30 officials who had participated in inter-Korean talks or supervised bilateral dialogue.
“On 10 March, the Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions wrote to the government regarding 37 reported cases of executions between 2007 and 2010 for ‘financial crimes.’”
South Korea’s government put out a report documenting torture and brutality on firsthand accounts from escapees.
But once again there was no hawkish call by the neoconservative machine and the Zionist regime to strike North Korea. In fact, the Zionist regime was largely silent. Basically no one took India and North Korea to task and said that we needed to go ahead and strike them.
The toppling of Kim Jun Un did not even appear in the neoconservative vocabulary list. As a matter of fact, right after North Korea’s failed missile attempt, they vowed to continue their program and refused to allow inspections by the IAEA. No one neoconservative came out and declared that North Korea is an existential threat to the West and the world.
Yet during the same period Obama imposed more sanctions on Iran, even though Iran did not give any indication that it would pursue nuclear. Even Israeli Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz—who kept saying that Iran could be an existential threat—declared that Iran was not going nuclear.
In short, the Zionist machine is more interested about Iran which does not even possess nuclear weapons. Bill Keller of the New York Times wrote an article in the summer of last year in which he screamingly declared that Iran must be bombed.
Yet when it came to North Korea, the same Bill Keller preferred diplomatic pressure and sanctions, even though Keller described in details that the North Korean regime has kept thousands of individuals in slave labor camps!
SOME PRACTICAL AND PERSONAL MEASURES
First of all, it has to be clear by now that there is no swift way to stop the Zionist logjam, which will continue to get on the nerve of any serious thinking person. If Alexander Solzhenitsyn is right, that “one word of truth outweighs the world,” then truth will eventually triumph.
In other words, let the truth fall like a mighty stream and it will slowly but surely vaporize the Zionist intelligentsia. I personally have corresponded with many Zionist historians and intellectuals who are a lot smarter than I am but their arguments always fall short precisely because they do not side with the truth.
One particular and noted writer and public intellectual even threatened me not to publish our interactions because he perceived that it would reveal that the Zionist emperor has no clothes.
In fighting against the Zionist empire, it is always prudent to stick with reason, logical and historical arguments, and ultimately with truth as much as possible. Moreover, it is also realistic to “be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”
Be wise, in this instance, means one ought to use prudent discretion when dealing with a mortal enemy, and harmless as doves means that one always ought to stay away from physical violence against any precious human being, including “the Jews.”
Unless prudent actions are taken, the six-trillion dollar war is just the beginning; unless Western politicians and serious thinkers take the Zionist empire to task, blood will continue to flow from the corpses of precious Muslims in the name of democracy and freeing the Muslim world from the shackles of backwardness. This is actually the assessment of Jewish neoconservative David Horowitz. Horowitz declared:
“In four years, George Bush has liberated nearly 50 million people in two Islamic countries. He has stopped the filling of mass graves and closed down the torture chambers of an oppressive regime. He has encouraged the Iraqis and the people of Afghanistan to begin a political process that give them rights they have not enjoyed in 5,000 years…”
If that is not Satanic in its metaphysical form, if you’ll pardon the language, then nothing is. Both the Bush and the Obama administrations have killed multiplied thousands of civilians under the name of fighting despotic regimes, but that is freedom to Horowritz.
Journalist John Glaser has recently documented that
“A new study says the U.S. invasion and subsequent war in Iraq killed an estimated 460,800, higher than most of the estimates frequently cited in the mainstream media, but lower than the controversial 2006 Lancet study that estimated between 400,000 and 655,000 excess deaths.”
This messianic politics certainly ought to stop, and America and much of the West need to stop swallowing the neoconservative and Zionist pills. As Stephen Walt of Harvard has argued, if a person tricks you and you ended up losing something like $2 billion, you certainly would not trust that person anymore.
Here the neoconservative/neo-Bolshevik/Zionist establishment, AIPAC, and other groups of the same ill pushed America into useless wars in the Middle East which have led to massive lost jobs, massive debt and deaths, massive depression among soldiers and so on, and no one in the government seems to say enough is enough. Is the West that unreasonable and blind?
The answer to that is a resounding no. The simple fact is that the West has been taken captive by the dreadful few, who are covert agents of the theological temple called “The Synagogue of Satan.”
A war against the covert activities of the dreadful few is a good war. And as long as the dreadful few continue to rule, there will always be a need to keep an eye on them.
The dreadful few gave us Guantanamo Bay, which Amnesty International had branded “the gulag of our times.” Remember that it was Jewish Bolshevism that gave us the gulag in the Soviet Union.
Now the dreadful few are furious about destroying Iran specifically. The Associated Press itself declares that
“Israel on Tuesday urged the world to avoid a partial deal with Iran which could see a relaxing of sanctions, just hours before a new round of nuclear talks.” Both AIPAC and even pro-Israel groups are currently threatened America not to get talk with Iran.
Netanyahu accused Iran “of institutionalized anti-Semitism,” but Jews in Iran do not abide by the wild rhetoric of this irresponsible man.
If the West is to survive Netanyahu and his Zionist dream of heaven on earth, the West has to ignore this man–or to put it humorously, the West has to douse him with a bucket of water.
