How many billionaires does it take to buy a government?
Just three, says Kevin McCarthy, the House Majority leader.
And why should money moguls have the power to seize our Constitutionally-established Congress?
Because money glazes over high crimes and misdemeanors with a honey-dipped brush.
[Clip: “For the longest time, the Democrats try to say they were the party of the American worker. And yet, when you look at the donations from individuals into the Republican Party, you are beating, you are beating the Democrats in that regard, but they’ve got a handful of big, deep-pocketed donors like a Michael Bloomberg, like a Tom Steyer.” “Just think of the three individuals who are funding the Democratic Party. George Soros. You’ve got Michael Bloomberg, not just 80 million into the House, but he put in another 20 million to try to win the Senate. Then Tom Steyer, more than 120 million dollars he has spent trying to win. But his main goal is to try to impeach President Trump. He brags that his impeachment list is bigger than an NRA list. Those three individuals are trying to buy our government in this process. It’s very disturbing.”]
Soros, Bloomberg, Steyer.
Sounds like a law firm that will ransack the Constitution and fleece a nation out of its last dime.
Buy the House, and they buy the government’s pocket book, and spend it for their own game.
And just what is their game?’
Soros is all about ‘opening up societies,’ where caravans of illegals, transvestites and cross-dressers, and abortions on demand, will wrench open a closed society of Traditional values and throw it into a hellhole that even a Fellini flick could never depict.
And what’s Bloomberg’s gig?
It’s all about gun control and stripping the goys of their last defense against government tyranny—of which he wants to be the chief tyrant.
[Clip: “It sounds like in your description on the climate front you see a real vacuum of leadership. Do you see that on some of these other issues that you have been quite active on?” “Well, I think there’s no leadership on keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, minors, and people with psychiatric problems which this country should be ashamed we’re not doing. I think the Second Amendment gives you the right, and I’m happy it does, I suppose, that we have the right to bear arms.”]
He who hesitates is…pretending.
We either have a Bill of Rights, or we don’t.
There’s no ’suppose.’
And Steyer’s stunt?
He’s just a regular kind of guy—a mass millionaire—who shows up at Town Hall meetings.
[Clip: “It’s my pleasure to introduce to you, Tom Steyer.” “Back on October 20th, the very first day we launched our petition, six people from Lansing signed on to impeach the president.” “The American people, definitely we’re sending a message. And that message was, ‘We’re not being heard.’ And that message is really what we are talking about today, returning power to the American people.” “My name is Heather Ryan from Des Moines, Iowa. And I believe that Donald Trump needs to be impeached because he’s treasonous. And that’s reason enough.” “My name is John West. I think we need to impeach the present president. We need a leader who does not lie.” “I’m Tony Davis from Des Moines, Iowa. I’m here because Donald Trump should be impeached because they don’t call him Don the Con for nothing.”]
“Don the Con?” “Leaders who don’t lie?” C’mon Steyer! Are those the best lines you can feed them? But like his big-bucks buddies, he’s got no positive thrust.
[Clip: “Well, Democrats chance of winning back the House appears to be growing. If that appears — if that actually happens, there’s a chance they may move to impeach President Trump. But one man, a billionare investor named Tom Steyer, he doesn’t want to wait. He’s already started a full-fledged war to get President Trump out of the White House. Bloomberg Businessweek Max Abelson wrote a profile of Steyer and he joins me now. Ok, I’m going to start off, if you can just explain to folks who don’t know him, who is he?”
“Of course, so the answer is interesting. I mean he’s like a classic Wall Street guy. Started at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, then he had a hedge fund. And not just like a small hedge fund, I mean truly one of the biggest hedge funds in the world. He became a finance billionaire. But he kind of had like a reawakening. First he became an environmentalist. Then, honestly, he basically had a second reawakening about six months ago and he turned into this American political figure. You might recognize his face from TV. He’s basically funding an ad campaign to impeach Donald Trump.” “You do see him out on television a lot. But you know, Max, what was really sort of surprising to me was according to disclosed donations, Steyer actually spent more than the Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson, Robert Mercer during the last two election cycles. How is that possible? What do you make of that?” “That’s absolutely right. Well, just — it’s important to keep in mind that there is also dark money, the donations that billionares make, and we just can’t see because it’s dark. But when it comes to disclosed donations, and there are a lot of them, Tom Steyer is the biggest donor in America in 2014, 2016, and he might be the biggest donor again in 2018. And that’s because he’s spending so much money on impeachment, and he’s also spending a lot of money to bring Millennials to voting booths in November. The thing about it is, though, he doesn’t like see himself as like just another billionaire cutting checks, you know, to buy influence. He really sees himself, and part of our business story is about, and its a big story, is he sees himself as this leader of a movement. He thinks, you know, that America is in this crisis, this cosmic crisis, and he’s the kind of man who can help save the day.”]
If ‘Steyer Saves,’ or Soros, or Bloomberg, ‘Saves,’ then I say, put your money where your mouth is.
Let’s shackle the money moguls with Campaign Finance Reform with restrictions and caps that will purge their dark money by full disclosure for every dollar spent.
That way their deep pockets will only be deep enough to fit in their mouths.
Talk about election meddling!
Remember the song, ‘Money Can’t Buy Me Love?’
Well, they’ll give all they’ve got to give and the Dems will love them too.
They sure have a lot to give but what they got won’t go to you.
Instead, their bucks will buy a Republic whose Constitutionally-enacted democratic process will shrink into the agenda of a chosen few.
Thank you once again for a thought-provoking and, at the same time, satirical Video about how our elections are bought and sold and our constitutional government and Congress is up for auction by political arsonists for the biannual Fire Sale.
Oh, sure. Unlike the two other chosen billionaires, Steyer is just ‘one of us’, a regular working guy who lives like a neo-feudal lord in Coastal California while the rest of us serfs work and live (often middle-class homeless) Inland, who rolls up his sleeves to signal how much he works on his billionaire’s vanity impeachment campaign.
All it actually does is signal Steyer’s probable effort to run for president in 2020.
Your emphasis on censorship and self-censorship by resorting to bleeping is hilarious, mocking the ADL’s Online Hate Index and Algorithm Deity, the SPLC, the MSM, the Big 3 Social Media, and of course the Bleeps as the Video does.
YT doesn’t bleep. They constrict or completely delete a Video.
The most sensitive, intimate, personal and private feelings are attacked by them. Whether it’s their TMI toilet paper commercials, or sexuality, etc. I mean what’s more embarrassing and despicable than to SHAME someone about their very natural human behavior..?
Or to deceive someone by trying to incorporate two sexes into one human by saying it’s “OK” — it’s “OK” to have two breasts and still have a penis, or to have a mustache/beard and a vagina… :/
All orchestrated by their evil agenda leading them down a path of moral sabotage to their souls utter destruction. The embarrassment of waking up after everyone has had their laughs to find out that they have been “had,” made a fool of - it’s their idea of their greatest accomplishment.
Whether it be politics, sexuality, finances, religion, or even friendship.
I really believe that they DO in fact know that their is NO Salvation for their Jesus CHRIST - killing/denying souls without repentance, and in this spiteful FACT have decided by ANY means to make this life for non-Jews on Earth - Our Hell, and their time on Earth -to be their Heaven, as they will certainly end up in Hell in the end, and we in Heaven+.
The “preemptive” strike IS the Jews “Go To” strategy - ALWAYS!
Their other “Go To” strategy is shame baiting! They alone perpetuate their own hatred from other and create their own isolation, pity garnering by gullible Yidiots!
This is where they try to convince themselves they are the “chosen ones”. If and when that doesn’t work the crying/lying - shaming/blaming starts up all over AGAIN!
Will they ever accept their accountability and simply be HONEST! They, more than anyone, should’ve FINALLY learned that there is no such thing as the perfect lie!
Some time after this midterm election I wish you would do a summary of your guesses about what really drives Trump.
My own analysis right now is that he is a Zionist before he is an American. You can’t be for both Americans first and Jews or Israelis first.
He seems to go for the latter. But maybe he’s pretending until the danger of impeachment has gone. If so, it’s some heavy pretending he’s been doing so far.
Big Jews everywhere. Goldman Sachs and Israel. He seems to be an anti-American’s liar, a pseudo-nationalist Zionist who’s done less against immigration that undermines ordinary Americans more than even Obama.
Foxjews reports that Trump is sending thousands of troops to the border in response to the immigrant invaders.
If so, the troops will probably just provide shelter, food, water, accommodations, instead of repel the invaders.
Trump is just another Zionist controlled puppet politician, but the red-kool-aid masses believe his BS more than they believe most politicians.
The Zionists have the Goyim divided, polarized, hateful of each other, now more than ever. Foxjews leads the red-kool-aid people to hate the blue-kool-aid people and the rest of the Jews Media lead the blue-kool-aid people to hate the red-kool-aid people.
Satan and his children are destroying the old Christian Order so they can replace it with Satan’s Jew World Order.
Daily Caller: TOM STEYER RUNS FACEBOOK AD COMPARING PRESIDENT TRUMP TO SADDAM HUSSEIN
Left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer is running a Facebook ad comparing President Donald Trump to former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
The ad features a three-minute long video that accuses the president of following a “dictator’s playbook” modeled by tyrants like Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, in addition to Hussein.
The ad describes Trump as a “malignant narcissist” and claims he is perpetuating “systemic misogyny.” The video claims Trump’s support for a border wall and attacks on the media make him comparable to dictators like Hussein and Chavez.
Steyer first published the Facebook video on Friday and on Monday began running ads promoting it, Facebook’s ad archive shows.
A spokesperson for Steyer did not return a request for comment on the video.
“This disgusting ad has no place running on Facebook and the absurd comparison should be condemned by all Americans,” Republican National Committee (RNC) spokesman Steve Guest said in a statement. Guest is a former Daily Caller reporter.
Steyer is spending $10 million promoting the possibility of impeaching Trump and is spending a $120 million overall to boost Democrats ahead of next week’s midterm elections.
As part of that effort, Steyer is flooding Facebook with political ads.
Between May 1 and Oct.27, Steyer spent $2.1 million promoting 5,600 different ads, Facebook’s ad archive shows. (RELATED: Tom Steyer Says The Mail Bomber Is Partly Why Americans Should Vote For Democrats)
The left-wing billionaire is considered a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate.
I just wonder how many people here have gone into M. S. King’s website, TomatoBubble.com, and read his latest article on Trump vs. the Pirhana Press?
Well, if you haven’t, now’s the chance to do so. Trump’s been having a field day accusing the New York Slimes, Commie News Network, and the rest of the Pirhana Press of producing Fake News. What’s so amazing about it all is that it’s practically all true.
The Pirhana Press has either deliberately covered up the march of the caravan migrants from Honduras and El Salvador through Guatemala and into Mexico, or lied about the 95% or more being members of vicious gangs such as MS-13 and MARA-18, robbers, pedophiles, other sex offenders, murderers as well as drug dealers.
In contrast, alternative media sources such as RT and Sputnik have exposed the Pirhana Press’s lies about this caravan and photographing only women, children and elderly, who made up only a small fraction of the caravan.
Only RT, Sputnik and other alternative media have reported the truth about the extremely high number of violent criminals and extremely low numbers of women, children and elderly, as well as photographing them.
All I can say about this immigration crisis is this: Trump has backed his warnings with action by deploying 5,000 military support personnel forces to the US-Mexican border.
He still has the authority under executive order to completely shut down this border, if necessary.
PJ Media: SPLC Leads Soros-Funded Groups in ‘Orwellian’ Attempt to Ban ‘Hate Speech’ on Social Media
Last week, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) teamed up with five other groups funded by George Soros to pressure tech companies to “reduce hateful activities on their platforms.”
While this sounds like a noble goal, mainstream conservative and Christian groups that have fallen afoul of the SPLC warned that these liberal organizations have an “Orwellian” definition of hate that most Americans would disagree with. Worse, social media companies already seem biased against conservatives, and this SPLC campaign would only embolden that bias.
On Wednesday, the SPLC led a coalition of groups in releasing “Change the Terms,” aiming to convince Big Tech to “reduce hateful activities on their platforms.”
The coalition warned that “white supremacist and other organizations that incite hate are using online platforms to organize, fund, recruit supporters for, and normalize racism, sexism, religious bigotry, as well as anti-LGBTQ and anti-immigrant animus, among other activities.”
While the overwhelming majority of Americans abhor wicked ideologies like white supremacy, the SPLC boldly associates its political opponents with similar “hate,” smearing them as “hate groups” to be compared with the KKK.
“It’s obviously concerning that they want to censor free speech, and of course their definition of ‘hate speech’ is not what most people think of as hate speech,” Mat Staver, founder and chairman of the Christian legal nonprofit Liberty Counsel, told PJ Media.
“Most people think of hate speech as somebody encouraging physical violence,” Staver argued. Groups like the SPLC “extend it to anybody who doesn’t accept their view on LGBT issues, same-sex marriage, abortion, immigration, or Islam.”
Indeed, the SPLC paid $3.375 million to settle a defamation lawsuit from Maajid Nawaz, a Muslim reformer the SPLC had branded an “anti-Muslim extremist.”
Following this settlement, Staver told PJ Media that 60 groups like Liberty Counsel — which has been branded a “hate group” by the SPLC — were considering separate defamation lawsuits against the smear factory.
Staver argued that the SPLC’s definition of “hate” reminds him of the outright lying associated with George Orwell’s famous classic 1984. “Their definition is Orwellian,” he said. “Their definition is no different than Bill Clinton’s, ‘It depends on what the definition of is is.’”
Tech companies have already targeted Liberty Counsel for adverse treatment thanks to the SPLC’s “hate group” list. “We had Norton Security software attempt to block us,” Staver recalled. “We sent a demand letter, and they withdrew the block. When they did their own review, they concluded that we were not a hate group.”
If tech companies consider “Change the Terms,” they should also examine the source.
“Tech companies should be aware that the Southern Poverty Law Center was connected in federal court to domestic terrorism when the shooter who attacked the Family Research Council in 2012 pled guilty to the crime while confessing that he relied on the SPLC’s discredited ‘hate map’ to target the FRC,” Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin, executive vice president at the Family Research Council (FRC), told PJ Media.
Indeed, the convicted terrorist who attempted to kill everyone in the FRC’s Washington, D.C., office admitted that he used the SPLC’s “hate map” to find his target. Even so, the SPLC has not reconsidered its “hate group” designation for FRC, and outlets like CNN plastered the SPLC “hate map” online, with no caveats.
Boykin warned that “the SPLC is a political defamation machine that has little respect for freedom of thought and expression. The SPLC is calling on tech companies to sacrifice free speech on the altar of political correctness.”
“To demand that social media platforms push past First Amendment principles to pursue nothing but the strictest forms of content-based regulation on free speech is to throw decades of jurisprudence on the fires of history,” Boykin argued. “The SPLC’s requests are nothing more than a demand to acquiesce to Neo-Marxism.”
The SPLC and its coalition would likely respond that the proposed terms do not violate the First Amendment. In a set of Frequently Asked Questions on the “Change the Terms” website, the groups argue that “hateful activity” means “activities that incite or engage in violence, intimidation, harassment, threats, or defamation targeting an individual or group based on their actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, immigration status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.”
“Because of the strict definition of hateful activity found in the terms of service, these policies will not block free speech,” the site claims. The First Amendment does not bind a private company, but it also does not protect all speech. “We carefully wrote the definition of hateful activity to cover types of speech that courts have said are not protected as free speech: incitement, violence, intimidation, harassment, threats, and defamation.”
The difficulty comes, however, in the application of these terms. “Change the Terms” calls on tech companies to “allow for individuals and organizations — but not government actors — to flag hateful activities, as well as flag groups and individuals engaged in hateful activities,” and to “create a trusted flagger program for vetted, well-established civil and human rights organizations to expedite review of potential hateful activities.”
Monitoring content on massive social media sites is difficult, so the SPLC and its Soros-funded allies are here to help! Just who would these “civil and human rights organizations” be?
The coalition includes the Center for American Progress (CAP), a left-wing group whose former president served as chief of staff for both Bill and Hillary Clinton. CAP admits receiving more than $1 million from Soros’ Open Society Foundations, but the Media Research Center put the number at $10 million — back in 2015!
CAP and the SPLC also teamed up with Free Press (which received $350,000 from Open Society Foundations in 2009), Color of Change (whose co-founders are Van Jones and a former MoveOn.org director, and which received $550,000 from the Open Society Foundation), the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law (a group that opposed Robert Bork in 1984 and received more than $900,000 from Soros groups), and the National Hispanic Media Coalition (which took $450,000 from Open Society Foundations in 2016).
Not to be left out, the SPLC also received a $75,000 grant from Open Society Foundations in 2016.
(Note: All Americans should condemn the bombing attempt against George Soros, but that attack does not make the Leftist donor any less liberal. His money machinations have brought down governments and he has directed funds to fundamentally change America.)
Jennifer Roback Morse, a leader at the Ruth Institute (which lost its credit-card processor thanks to the SPLC’s “hate group” label), told PJ Media that “‘Change the Terms’ seems to be a coalition of well-funded hard-Left organizations intent on shutting down even small opponents.”
Lamentably, “the people behind ‘Change the Terms’ appear to be completely oblivious to their own biases,” Morse noted. She warned that “independent thinkers should not allow groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center to censor the Internet.”
Even so, many tech companies seem to have the right kind of biases to fall for the SPLC’s rhetoric. A survey earlier this year found that conservatives working for Silicon Valley companies live in fear of their political opinions being exposed.
Studies have found massive support for Democrats over Republicans at Apple, Amazon, and Google. Making matters worse, these companies already cite the SPLC’s “hate group” list, with Amazon removing D. James Kennedy Ministries and Alliance Defending Freedom from its Amazon Smile program, and Apple partnering with the SPLC.
In August, Facebook censored conservative articles, marking them as “spam.” It also censored the popular conservative video nonprofit PragerU, and when the employee responsible became known, Facebook did not fire him. PragerU has already sued Google and YouTube over “intentional censorship” of their videos.
Matthew Taylor, director of the new film “The Creepy Line,” told PJ Media he found “Change the Terms” “deeply concerning and potentially dangerous.”
“As we have seen, these companies are not ideologically neutral and already they see themselves as censors of ideas they deem against their world view,” Taylor noted. “While this is bad for innovation and the development of thought, it becomes more dangerous when this plays out in a free society.”
This is a civilian Customs & Border Patrol operation with the US Army mobilizing for a supporting role for CBP and assisting the 2,100 National Guard troops already along the border.
Mattis’ authorization last week allowed the military to provide “mission-enhancing capabilities” to Customs and Border Protection to help build temporary barriers and housing, probably tent cities. Their mission is authorized through mid-December, a date that could be extended.
It is deemed not in violation of Posse Comitatus as they will not be acting either as civilian law enforcement personnel or conducting military “kinetic” (lethal) operations.
Instead Northern Command is sending engineers, pilots and other support staff including some that may be able deal with crowd control on the American side of the border.
Some construction materials are already being moved to the border, including barriers.
Military units will be armed with light weapons for self-defense purposes.
Pentagon: More Troops Deploy to Support DHS/CBP Southwest Border Mission
OCT. 29, 2018
Air Force Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, the commander of U.S. Northern Command, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin K. McAleenan, announced plans today to increase the amount of troops assisting the CBP mission on the Southwest border.
1 - DOD will deploy more than 5,000 active-duty personnel to aid the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Customs and Border Protection to harden the southern border.
2 - The mission is named Operation Faithful Patriot.
3 - Today, we have about 800 soldiers who are on their way to Texas — coming from Fort Campbell and Fort Knox, Kentucky.
4 - By the end of this week more than 5,200 soldiers will deploy to the Southwest border, joining 2,092 National Guardsmen participating in Operation Guardian Support.
5 - The troop deployment will be in support of law enforcement with Customs and Border Protection.
**CBP has requested aid in air and ground transportation, and logistics support, as well as engineering capabilities and equipment to secure legal crossings, and medical support units.
[Kevin K. McAleenan, U.S. Customs and Border Protection] commissioner said there are two caravans that the agency is watching.
One has already made illegal entry across two international borders, and the second – still in Guatemala – “has deployed violent and dangerous tactics against Guatemalan and Mexican border security teams,” he said.
“Accordingly, we are preparing for the contingency of a large group of arriving persons intending to enter the United States in the next several weeks.
Operation Faithful Patriot will harden the U.S. border with Mexico.
“In a macro sense, our concept of operations is to flow in our military assets with a priority to build up Southern Texas then Arizona and then California,” [Air Force Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, commander of U.S. Northern Command] said.
“We will reinforce along priority points of entry to enhance CBPs ability to harden and secure the border.”
Members of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will bring their experience to the border, the general said.
They will be joined by three combat engineer battalions with expertise in building temporary barriers and fencing.
The battalions will bring their heavy equipment “which as we speak is long hauling toward Texas,” the general said.
Military planning teams are already engaged with CBP counterparts.
The military is also providing three medium lift helicopter companies and military police units. There are already three C-130 Hercules and one C-17 Globemaster III aircraft standing by to provide strategic airlift for CBP.
1. Don’t put much faith in RT. They’re copying the Western news outlet format.
Especially gratuitous sex stories; but they ARE better at covering geopolitical angles… between sex articles. They also push a confusing narrative in an attempt to sow division among the NATO countries.
2. The mail bomb story seems to have fizzled out.
3. Now the synagogue shooting story is changing. Did the alleged shooter use an AR15 or an AK47? Inquiring minds want to know.
There’s no way anyone with two brain cells to rub together could get it wrong.
And where are the body cam videos from all those SWAT cops who reponded to the call?
4. If you haven’t phoned your pols to let them know your thoughts on these things, now is a good time.
Not too much talk about the Saudi Arabia journalist killing on here, or on the WWE still deciding to go ahead and have their pay per view in Saudi Arabia.
I for one am totally fine with it. I’m not outraged by the Saudi thing.
A week before that happened the Bulgarian government raped and killed a female journalist who was investigating misappropriation of EU funds. Why no international outrage?
Michael Hastings in 2013 was investigating…he tells his friends and family that he’s working on this story and his life is in danger… blows up the next night in his car…an American journalist…in America…and nobody cares.
Those pushing for a Third World War want to cut ties with Saudi Arabia because they said if there are sanctions on Saudi Arabia they’ll raise the price of oil to $200 a barrel, and take the billions they would’ve spent on American weapons and buy them from Russia and China and they’ll have a Russian military base set up in their country…
Importing your voter base is a big help. Such humanitarians they are.
Such a beacon of light onto the world. Thanks Juden!

Vesti News: Day of Remembrance: Ordinary Russians Remember Countless Victims of Brutal Bolshevik Repression
On the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Political Repressions in Russia, they remember by naming the political prisoners who had to go through the camps during a difficult period of our history.
The all-Russian campaign “Bell of Memory” united those who came to the memorial service on that day from Magadan to the Butovo Shooting Range and the Wall of Grief and visited memorial services in churches.
After months of searching on and off, I’ve found Christian Zionism: It’s History, Theology and Politics by Rev. Stephen Sizer is the best and most comprehensive work of its kind spanning over 400 years.
It can be found in PDF form here:
“Why we republish this text : The rev. Stephen Sizer has done an immense service to mankind, and to the peoples of the Middle East in particular, in analyzing what is called, in the US, “Christian Zionism”, a purely American phenomenon, with a direct impact on the genocide practiced in Palestine by the Israeli authorities.
“‘Stephen Sizer’s Christian Zionism : Road Map to Armageddon? is essential reading for any western evangelical trying to understand the religious dimensions of American support for Israel. Sizer writes as an insider within the church, not as a critic watching from afar. And he shows with exacting clarity how evangelical eschatology has now embedded itself in a modern political ideology.
“‘One quick read of this book will change anyone’s perspective on the Middle East permanently.’ — Professor Gary M. Burge, Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College & Graduate School, Wheaton (author of Whose Land, Whose Promise? What Christians Are Not Being Told About Israel and the Palestinians).
“Stephen Sizer’s work on Christian Zionism is the most important and comprehensive on the subject to date, and should be read by all students of the Middle East and by Christians concerned about a just resolution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Christian Zionism raises vital theological and political challenges that must be addressed head-on by Christians in the West, particularly evangelicals.
“‘The impact of this terribly misguided movement is increasingly putting Christians in the Middle East at risk, and it seems a far cry from the witness and message of Jesus Christ.’ — Professor Don Wagner, North Park University, Chicago (author of Anxious for Armageddon & Dying in the Land of Promise).:
“Are the Jews only enemies of the Christians? Or the whole human race?”
The whole human race - but especially Christianity. Jewry’s liege lord, Satan, hates all humans, who are made in God’s image. But he isn’t threatened by paganism or Judaism. Maybe a bit by Islam. But he definitely fears and hates Christianity - though not all Christianity equally: for example, Protestant Evangelicals happily do his bidding.
“I am new to this Jew studies. I have many questions.”
Welcome aboard! You’ve come to the right place.
“Please explain how Jews are in every race. I mean aren’t they mixed with all races already?”
Jews spread throughout the world mainly through their business dealings. They maintain a separate identity from those they live among and are very aware of themselves as being separate. The first Jews into a nation soon invite their relatives to come over too. More and more move in and before long they start scheming up ways to increase their power - which they do through bribery, blackmail, threats, injury and murder.
They stay hidden in the shadows and work through others until they start feeling secure enough to come out into the open. They always target the Gentile leaders first - because as the old (Jewish?) saying goes: “Turn the head and the (rest of the) ass follows”.
“How can they forget that we will pray to God and love Jesus even more as they try harder and harder to mock Jesus?”
Because most “Christians” are lukewarms who worship Jesus with their lips; Evangelical Protestants for example. Jewry is very aware of this. Most “Christians” are actually functioning atheists; they live as if God doesn’t exist. Therefore bad Christianity is worse than devout paganism.
“Keep up the work, sir.”
Spend a year or two here and you’ll have a veritable PhD in Jewry. Best of luck!
The head of the Russian Orthodox Church said, “when it comes to Orthodox families, and cases where the Church can vouch for someone, then I think we could start some negotiations with the authorities, so that such people could quickly fulfill their dreams and settle in Russia.”
Thank you for the replies, even though only recently I found about Jews, I discovered a lot, a lot! Thanks to people like Brother Nathanael.
Yes, I am an Indian, who only just discovered there are Jews in India!! and continuous search led me through pewdiepie controversy (yes, there are people in India who don’t even know what a Jew is, camouflage is the greatest asset of the serpent - that is true.).
It is hard to believe but Jews have very strong connection to Hinduism, Indian politics, cinema, etc., and the good news is more and more people are becoming aware of the snakes.
Even though you said Jews preserve their “clan purity,” I believe there are certain bastard offspring of the snakes are out there, in every country, every race, but carefully pretending to be natives.
Funny thing is, my history lessons in school taught me Hitler was as evil as possible, yet I developed a respect for him, even when I wasn’t aware of the existence of Jews!! So now I know, truth will prevail no matter what.
As an Indian, now I like his ideology of opposing world Jewry and every race must struggle to become ubermensch. Now I know about bad “white supremacists” and evil “neo-nazis”.
When I saw Brother Nathanael’s video of Elena Kagan, it was a spot on exposure!
The way she tried to avoid the direct question, the brilliance of the guy who asked “No, I just asked where were you at Christmas?” and the the shrieking fake laugh, the extreme uncomfortable wrath she tried to hide at the mere mention of Christ, that mic grab, that sudden laugh to serious face…everything was just exposing! Exposing!! Kudos to that guy!!!
Now I am a born Hindu, Now I know about what Christ was all about. There are a lot to talk. Thank you guys for fighting the ultimate enemy.
Yes, you are not a brave man even of you fight off 10 lions bare handed, till you fight the great serpent!
Information Clearing House: Occupation Of The American Mind - Israel And US Public Opinion
A look at the information wars waged by Israel and its supporters to win the hearts and minds of the American people.
An occupation of American media and the American mind by a pro-Israel narrative that’s deflected attention away from what virtually everyone recognises as the best way to resolve this conflict: end the occupation and the settlements so that Palestinians can finally have a state of their own.
The Israeli perspective dominates the American media and pro-Israel talking points are repeated by the highest government officials and recycled endlessly by the media.
How, if at all, can propaganda be uncovered if the mainstream point of view is so dominant?
Over the past few years, Israel’s ongoing military occupation of Palestinian territory and repeated invasions of the Gaza strip have triggered a fierce backlash against Israeli policies virtually everywhere in the world — except the United States.
The Occupation of the American Mind takes an eye-opening look at this critical exception, zeroing in on pro-Israel public relations efforts within the U.S.
Narrated by Roger Waters and featuring leading observers of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and U.S. media culture, the film explores how the Israeli government, the U.S. government, and the pro-Israel lobby have joined forces, often with very different motives, to shape American media coverage of the conflict in Israel’s favor.
From the U.S.-based public relations campaigns that emerged in the 1980s to today, the film provides a sweeping analysis of Israel’s decades-long battle for the hearts, minds, and tax dollars of the American people in the face of widening international condemnation of its increasingly right-wing policies.
Isn’t there already an exposure documentary about the Jewish infiltration in UK politics? Especially about complete compromise of the Labour Party?
There was this Jew called ‘Shai’ or something who then got sacked. There was clips of people getting encouraged to smear Islam as violent. One guy was even screaming ‘your religion is violence’ again and again like he was on meth (or in this case Jew money.)
To be honest, Jews now fear Islam as much as Christianity because they respect Christ more than some Christians themselves these days. You won’t believe how so-called ministries in South Asia are taking people for fools and promoting jewish “innocence” and hide the deicide!
The message is clear : our Lord Jesus Christ said to the Pharisees :”if you were sons of Abraham you would have done the deeds of Abraham, your father is the father of lies who is a murderer since the beginning”.
In Genesis, the Serpent lied to Adam and Eve, Adam and Eve believed in the words of the Serpent instead of believing in the words of God so that they were lead to death. When they ate from the forbidden fruit they introduced in themselves a foreign element : sin, incompatible with the sanctity/purity necessary to be allowed to live with God in the Garden of Eden/Haeven, so they have been expelled from it and became mortal.
The serpent which appeared in the Wailing Wall which is the central place of devotion of the religious Jews, represent sin and death, and its appearing warn all the Christians not to fall in the tricks of the father of lies, the cursed Serpent.
It indicates that the 3rd Temple which the religious Jews want to build in that place, is in fact the house of the Serpent, the father of lies, and that Christians should not help or contribute to its building at any cost because of the danger to lose eternal life.
The bird which was on the wall and escaped flying represents the Christians who should repent, depart from believing lies/heresies and participating in deeds of death.
The Antichrist (the false Messiah of the Jews) will sit in that 3rd Temple, as prophetised in the Revelation/Apocalypsis, and will ask to be worshiped and adored as God!
So, beware! The end is very near! Lord have mercy on us all! Amen!
It’s soooo pathetically hellarious to see the Jew-controlled media outlets post FAKE NEWS stories about racism towards blacks, Hispanics, & anything else in an attempt to generalize/minimalize the hatred towards them, and at the same time try to “buddy up” with what they refer to as “shooks” and “border brothers,” manipulating them into the fight, while yet again, the Jew Worms rob the till in their distractions.
People see you now, Jews! The jig is up! There will be no place you will be welcome, albeit the ridiculously stupid, NOT funny Jew owned SNL shows, or the liberAhole puppet Jimmy Kimmel show.
You Worms are toast NEVER to return as anything viable! Hurry up now, go false flag something/kill someone in order to make you the “victims” or the “heroes” = YIDIOTS!
The major platforms are under fire for influencing the elections by suppression of conservative viewpoints.
In an act that has many people thinking, ‘finally!’ the Federal Election Committee has received a complaint asking for an investigation into Google, Facebook, and Twitter’s election interference.
The Americans for Legal Immigration PAC has requested that an investigation be conducted concerning the suppression of certain political views and general Silicon Valley bias, which is a violation of free speech.
The letter states, “companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google are violating US 11 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) sections § 114, § 114.2, and § 114.9, which prohibit corporations and corporation employees from contributing any services or anything of value to elections and campaigns.”
The letter contains a 12-page report to Congress, outlining the specific actions the trio has taken against ALIPAC.
The group sites at least 85 other conservative groups that have been targeted in a similar manner, and charged, “Facebook, Google, and Twitter are clearly engaged in a pattern of abuse and manipulation targeting conservative voices from the center to right of the spectrum of American politics in an effort to use their powerful companies and technology to influence the outcome of elections in favor of Democrats and pro-Amnesty Republicans.”
Specifically they argue that Google and YouTube, “allowed or instructed their employees to destroy the contents of our YouTube channel ALIPAC1 on January 15, 2015, through administrator access and then refused to answer any of our requests to restore the videos and links to the account.”
“The account contained numerous popular videos that were influencing US elections and legislation efforts in favor of our political positions and against the immigration issue positions of Google.”
The group charges that the “vandalism of our account from within Google constitutes a great contribution of value to candidates and groups who oppose the candidates and groups backed and endorsed by ALIPAC.”
Many people agree and are sick of the power wielded by the tech giants.
Gilad Atzmon: Being in Midterm Election
November 05, 2018
Ahead of the American Midterm Election I reprint a short segment from Being in Time - a Post Political Manifesto.
It seems to me as if most political commentators are yet to grasp the post-political transition: the growing divide that extends far beyond politics, ideology, ethnicity and class.
“America is divided into two camps: the Americans and the Identitarians.
The Americans are those who see themselves primarily as American patriots. They are driven by rootedness and heritage. For them, the promise to make ‘America great again’ confirms that utopia is nostalgia and that the progressive and liberal offerings are nothing short of an ongoing disaster.
The Identitarians, on the other hand, are those who subscribe to liberal and progressive politics. They see themselves primarily as LGBTQ, Latino, Black, Jewish, feminist and so on.
Their bond with the American national or patriotic ethos is secondary and often even non-existent.
But the Identitarian agenda backfired.
It was only a question of time before the so-called ‘Whites’, ‘rednecks’ ‘deplorables’ and ‘reactionaries’ grasped that their backs were against the wall and they too, started to act and think as an Identitarian political sector. For these folks, the American flag became their symbolic identifier as well as unifier.
Those of us who have critically examined the evolution of New Left, progressive, liberal and Identitarian politics were unsurprised by Donald Trump’s success.
Indeed, the defeat of the Remain camp in the UK Brexit poll had previously exposed a similar fatigue amongst British working people. But what is the nature of this fatigue?
Our urban financial quarters are now saturated with glass skyscrapers metaphorically designed to convey transparency as well as fragility. But when you stand close to these glass towers you realize that the wall in front of you is no window but a mirror.
And when you attempt to peep in, all you see is yourself standing outside. Being in Time is an attempt to grasp that sense, that ‘post-political’ condition of being left outside.” (Being in Time - A Post Political Manifesto pg 7)
LA Times: These are the billionaires hoping to influence elections that will determine control of Congress
Photo composite caption: The top political donors of the 2018 midterm election are a bipartisan and varied lot.
Top, from left: Sheldon Adelson, Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg. Middle: S. Donald Sussman, George Soros and Stephen Schwarzman. Bottom: Jeff Bezos, Fred Eychaner and Kenneth Griffin.
One is the world’s richest person, another has been described as a “chain-smoker who often dresses without socks,” and yet another has changed political parties twice, most recently this year.
With the election just around the corner and their party on the defense, Republicans have railed against Democratic billionaires pouring big money into this year’s midterm. But the top political donors of the closely watched battle for control of Congress are a bipartisan and varied lot.
Of the top dozen individuals or family donors, half fund Democrats, five support Republicans and one, Jeff Bezos, has chosen to put nearly all of his contributions toward nonpartisan groups, according to data compiled by the nonprofit Center for Responsive Politics.
The amount of money flowing in this year’s election is jaw-dropping. Driven mostly by seven- and eight-figure amounts from super PACs, spending has already surpassed $5.2 billion, making it the most expensive midterm election in American history.
The massive contributions, particularly from ultra-conservative donors such as Las Vegas billionaires Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, are helping even the playing field for Republicans in a year in which a wave of Democratic energy has fueled record fundraising for candidates on the left.
“A $50-million contribution can go a long way in covering some of the gaps in fundraising we see in these local races,” says Alex Baumgart, a researcher at the Center for Responsive Politics.
Here are the top 12 political donors of 2018, based on total personal and trackable contributions they made to candidates, committees and outside groups.
(These figures do not include dark money, or money contributed to and spent by nonprofits like 501(c)(4)s, which sometimes disclose their donors in annual Internal Revenue Service filings. Those filings won’t be due until months after the election, and the Trump administration recently relaxed requirements on such groups to disclose donors.)
1. Sheldon✡ and Miriam Adelson✡ — $113 million
Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his physician wife are two of the most prominent Republican super-donors, with an estimated net worth of $34 billion. Adelson is chairman and chief executive of Las Vegas Sands Corp., which owns the Venetian casino and hotel and the Sands Expo and Convention Center.
This year, the Adelsons have broken the record for the largest sum any individual or family has spent on federal elections.
The largest chunk, $50 million, went to the Congressional Leadership Fund, the biggest conservative group trying to help the GOP retain control of the House.
The previous record was theirs, too: They dropped $92 million on GOP candidates and committees in 2012.
Despite expressing initial reservations about Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, the Adelsons wound up contributing $20 million toward the main super PAC supporting his presidential bid.
The Adelsons, who are Jewish and staunch supporters of Israel, have been credited with pushing President Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Two years ago, Sheldon Adelson helped launch a multimillion-dollar effort to promote Israel on college campuses, starting with six California schools.
In 2015, Adelson purchased the Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper in a secret deal that was later revealed.
2. Michael Bloomberg✡ — $61.3 million
The businessman and former mayor of New York City is a Democrat turned Republican turned Democrat again.
Bloomberg made his fortune through his namesake media company and is worth an estimated $46.1 billion. He has donated billions to gun control efforts and to fighting climate change.
Most of his money this year has gone to Independence USA PAC, a group he is bankrolling that recently dropped $9.5 million for ads supporting Democrats running against Republican Reps. Dana Rohrabacher of Costa Mesa and Steve Knight of Palmdale.
Bloomberg has said he would spend $100 million on this midterm election, which includes spending from Independence USA — the political action committee has spent $45.2 million in independent expenditures as of Nov. 2

3. Tom Steyer✡ and Kathryn Ann Taylor — $59.8 million
Steyer is an environmentalist and former hedge fund manager at Farallon Capital who made his fortune “picking diamonds out of the dust,” as one magazine put it.
In 2012, Steyer walked away from his company to focus full time on political activism and philanthropy. He and his wife, Taylor, have an estimated net worth of $1.6 billion and have become top Democratic donors.
Steyer launched an online petition urging Trump’s impeachment that has garnered 6.1 million signatures and made establishment Democrats uneasy. He opted not to donate any money to Democratic Party committees this year after Democrats in Congress voted to reopen the government despite failing to reach an immigration deal.
Steyer has pledged to spend nearly $120 million in the 2018 midterm campaign, including $70 million to NextGen America, his nonprofit focused on climate change that is helping register and turn out young voters and people of color.
Speaking to a student on the Cal State Fullerton campus this fall, Steyer said, “You can change this world, or it can be run by a bunch of arrogant, entitled, rich white old men.”
A spokesman for Steyer says much of the money he spends won’t be documented by campaign finance filings submitted to the Federal Election Commission but in IRS filings due next year.
4. Richard and Elizabeth Uihlein — $39.1 million
Richard Uihlein is founder and CEO of shipping supply giant Uline. The Uihleins have been longtime donors to conservative politics in their home state of Illinois and nationwide, particularly aimed at achieving a more conservative judicial system.
The couple were major backers of Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner and failed U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore, and they bankrolled Janus vs. AFSCME, a Supreme Court case that succeeded in banning mandatory fees funding public employee unions.
The candidates and groups the Uihleins have backed are among the most conservative in the GOP, opposing abortion and transgender rights.
Uihlein and his wife maintain a low profile, rarely giving interviews.
5. S. Donald Sussman✡ — $22.9 million
A Florida native, Sussman founded New China Capital Management and the Paloma Fund, which was described in 2016 as a $4-billion hedge fund.
Sussman is a longtime donor to Bill and Hillary Clinton and was a prominent donor to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
This cycle, his biggest contributions have gone to Democratic behemoth Priorities USA PAC and the Senate Majority PAC, which is working to flip control of the Senate.
He has also given to efforts to expand voter access and has said he is driven by a desire to elect candidates who will bring about campaign finance reform.
“It’s very odd to be giving millions when your objective is to actually get the money out of politics,” he told the Washington Post in 2016.
6. James✡ and Marilyn Simons✡(nee Kantor) — $18.9 million
James Simons was a mathematician and onetime U.S. code-breaker who founded hedge fund giant Renaissance Technologies in 1982. He’s estimated to have a net worth of $16 billion.
He has been a major donor to Democratic groups and candidates and has also backed environmental efforts.
The Simons family is the biggest donor this cycle to the House Majority PAC, a group with ties to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi that is spending millions to flip California House districts.
Described in a 2016 profile as “a chain-smoker who often dresses without socks,” Simons ran the firm with conservative mega-donor Robert Mercer. “He’s excellent at his job, and we don’t talk politics,” Simons said.
Simons retired in 2010 but still plays a role in the fund, which manages an estimated $57 billion.
7. George Soros✡ — $17.4 million
Soros, who has pumped billions of dollars into progressive foundations, campaigns and causes, is a favorite bogeyman of the far right.
He was one of several prominent Democrats who recently received pipe bombs at their homes or offices or had such packages addressed to them.
Days later, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Bakersfield) deleted a tweet urging voters to support Republicans in the upcoming midterm, saying, “We cannot allow Soros, Steyer and Bloomberg to BUY this election.”
Trump then claimed he “wouldn’t be surprised” if Soros was funding a caravan of Central American migrants making its way to the border between the U.S. and Mexico; he offered no evidence.
Soros was born in Hungary and is a survivor of the Holocaust.
After working in London as a railway porter and waiter, he moved to the U.S. in the 1950s and made his fortune as an investor.
Most of his philanthropic and political advocacy runs through his Open Society Foundations, which supports education and refugee relief programs worldwide.
8. Stephen✡ and Christine Schwarzman — $12.8 million
Stephen Schwarzman founded the global private equity firm Blackstone Group with fellow billionaire Pete Peterson and still serves as its chairman and CEO. His wife, Christine, is an intellectual property lawyer.
The New York couple gave $3.4 million this cycle to the Congressional Leadership Fund, one of the main super PACs dedicated to protecting the GOP majority in the House.
Stephen Schwarzman contributed to a PAC supporting presidential candidate Jeb Bush and later became a generous donor to Trump, who has granted him such access as an advisor that he has been called the president’s “de-facto China whisperer.”
9. Fred Eychaner✡ — $12.2 million
Eychaner is the chairman of the Chicago-based Newsweb Corp. The multimillionaire owns radio stations and a printing press that produces alternative, college and ethnic newspapers.
He has been one of the top donors in the country to Democratic campaigns, gay rights groups and arts organizations.
The media executive supported Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential bid over his home-state senator Barack Obama. He later contributed money to Obama’s campaign and held a fundraiser for him at his home.
This year, Eychaner was found to be part of a tiny group of wealthy donors who have contributed more than one-fifth of the $4.5 billion collected by super PACs since their inception in 2010, according to a Washington Post analysis of data from the Federal Election Commission.
Eychaner, who is openly gay, helped fund pro-gay-marriage groups in a successful battle for the right to marry in Illinois.
He is the founder and president of the Alphawood Foundation, which provides grants to nonprofits dedicated to gay rights, AIDS and HIV issues and other causes.
10. Kenneth and Anne Griffin — $11.1 million
Kenneth Griffin, the founder and CEO of the global investment firm Citadel, is one of the highest-earning hedge fund managers in the world and a Republican mega-donor.
He was previously married to another hedge fund manager, Anne Griffin, founder and CEO of Aragon Global Management.
Kenneth Griffin, a self-labeled Reagan Republican, became more involved in politics after the 2008 financial crash and what he has decried as his industry’s falling out with government.
He takes a conservative view of regulation and subsidies, particularly in the financial markets he engages in.
He has backed Democrats and Republicans, but the Griffins’ contributions this cycle have gone to the GOP.
Speaking at the annual Milken Institute Global Conference in Los Angeles last year, Griffin praised the president’s efforts in his first 100 days in office, including attempts to overhaul the tax system and repeal the Affordable Care Act.
11. Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos — $10.2 million
The founder of Amazon and his wife, MacKenzie, made their first major political donation this September to a nonpartisan fund dedicated to helping elect veterans of all stripes to Congress.
They have since tried to toe the middle road, handing $10.8 million to Democrats and $16.2 million to Republicans this cycle. Their top individual recipients have been Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.).
Bezos, the world’s richest person, has faced criticism from both Republicans and Democrats.
Trump has attacked him via Twitter over his ownership of the Washington Post; Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) criticized him over the wages he pays his Amazon warehouse employees.
The Bezoses’ other top financial contributions this cycle have been to nonpartisan political action committees connected with Amazon and Blue Origin, his rocket company.
12. Timothy Mellon — $10.1 million
The chairman of Pan Am Systems, a transportation company based in New Hampshire, is a member of the influential Mellon family tied to Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
The investor, now in Wyoming, made a surprising $2,700 donation to New York Democratic House hopeful Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from the Bronx and gave the rest to the GOP, including $10 million to the Congressional Leadership Fund.
Mellon, who first developed a computer-programming business in the 1960s, has in the past contributed $1.5 million to a legal fund set up by then-Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, to defend a controversial state law on immigration.
It permitted law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of anyone they suspected to be in the country illegally; the U.S. Supreme Court ultimately struck down provisions that raised civil rights violations.
There’s only the ever-grinding tightening up of censorship against anything having to do with the Palestinians, their resistance to the brutal Israeli military occupation (whose heroes are the Jewish terrorists of the 1930s and ’40s) and activism in America especially on college campuses, and anyone else challenging the Jews’ lies.
One thing that jumped out at me was the Jews’ knowledge that in terms of “optics” — the broadcasting of images of Palestinian casualties and of IDF aggressions — worked against them. So what has happened is that the MSM and Big Data now will not broadcast or allow publication of Israel’s blood baths and war crimes committed by a high tech military against a resistant people armed with insignificant weapons and having no military.
A major component of the ‘Occupation of the American Mind’ is the Hasbara Fellowship on American campuses:
Hasbara Fellowships is a leading pro-Israel campus activism organization working with universities across North America.
Spearheaded by Aish HaTorah in 2001, Hasbara Fellowships brings hundreds of students to Israel every summer and winter, giving them the information and tools to return to their campuses as educators about Israel.
So far, Hasbara Fellowships has educated over 3,000 students on over 250 campuses. Upon returning from the program, Hasbara Fellows receive continuous support from our staff, as well as access to various campaigns, programs, and speakers.
Back in the days when Catholics had popes worthy of the title there lived a Roman nun who’d acquired a saintly reputation.
It was being said she had the gifts of vision and prophecy among others.
The pope heard about her and decided to have the matter investigated. He asked a priest whom he knew well and trusted to go to the convent and speak with her and those who could vouch for her.
It was raining when the priest set out and by the time he got to the convent he was soaked and muddy. The nun was brought in and made a good impression. The priest asked her to help him take his muddy boots off. The nun declined but said they had a maid in the convent who would do so.
The priest immediately stood up, put his wet cloak back on, said farewell and headed back out the way he came.
Can anyone here say what happened to make him do that?
The ads were using a well known trope used all over the world depicting money clutched in someone’s hand as a symbol for greed which were attacking American Democrat politicians who happen to be Jewish and their policies, not ethnicity.
As one Haaretz commentator said: “Like it or not, corruption and privately financed campaigns happens to be a hot topic in America these days. Indeed, it was a Jew, Bernie Sanders, who really gave the issue the attention it deserved.
“Many American politicians happen to be Jewish. If it is suspected that they, like gentile politicians, place a higher value on the money of their donors and value of their stock options than they do on the well being of their constituents and the American polity, then they can be and should be depicted as greedy, irrespective of their religion.
Politicians who cant take such heat, should get out of the kitchen. My $.02!”
Methinks the Jew doth protest too much.
JTA/Haaretz: Republicans in Several States Run Ads Depicting Jewish Opponents Clutching Money
From Alaska to North Carolina, Republicans are either not commenting or denying anti-Semitic intent
Republicans in Alaska, Washington state, Connecticut, North Carolina and California have run ads showing Jewish Democrats handling cash. In Pennsylvania, a candidate married to a Jewish man is depicted similarly.
In Alaska, Republican Women of Juneau ran an ad targeting State Sen. Jesse Kiehl showing a man sticking a wad of cash into his inner jacket pocket.
In North Carolina, the state Republican Party ran an online ad denouncing what it called the radical agenda of Democrats.
It featured the Senate minority leader, Democrat Chuck Schumer of New York, clutching a wad of cash. Neither Hillary Clinton, the party’s 2016 presidential nominee, nor Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader, are shown with cash.
The Juneau Republican group did not return calls from The Post seeking comment. The Washington and North Carolina state parties denied anti-Semitic intent but did not say whether they had run similar ads against non-Jewish candidates.
In Pennsylvania, State Rep. Todd Stephens ran a TV ad featuring challenger Sara Johnson Rothman clutching a wad of cash. Rothman’s husband is Jewish. The illustration dropped her maiden name, Johnson, even though she routinely uses it.
Additionally, a Stephens mailer depicts a woman receiving a wad of cash from a donor. Johnson Rothman serves on the Upper Dublin school board in suburban Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Inquirer quoted Stephens as denying anti-Semitic intent. The newspaper quoted a spokeswoman for the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia saying that she did not perceive anti-Semitism, but also quoted the president of the city’s Board of Rabbis as saying the ad was “disturbing” and, inadvertently or not, used anti-Semitic tropes.
Ads targeting Jewish candidates for state office in California and Connecticut depicting the candidates clutching wads of cash were previously reported.
Ed Charamut, a Republican running for Connecticut State Senate, sent out a mailer showing his opponent, Democratic State Rep. Matt Lesser, grinning while clutching $100 bills. The mailer went out on October 30, three days after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting that left 11 worshipers dead.
Lesser told The Hartford Courant that people called him about receiving “an anti-Semitic flier.”
“I thought there was a mistake,” he told The Courant. “Someone showed it to me and I think it would be a gross understatement to say I was surprised.”
Charamut at first denied that the leaflet was anti-Semitic, but three days later his campaign posted an apology on Facebook.
“The entire campaign committee, which includes members of the Jewish community, never discussed or considered Mr. Lesser’s ethnicity, race, religion or any other personal characteristic of Mr. Lesser and it was never our intention for the mailer to be anything more than a reflection of Mr. Lesser’s policy record,” the post read.
“However, it is clear now that the imagery could be interpreted as anti-Semitic, and for that we deeply apologize as hate speech of any kind does not belong in our society and especially not in our politics.”
The flyer went out Sunday. Nine Jewish Democrats in the Assembly sent a letter in protest, saying the image reflected “anti-Semitic tropes.”
“At best, this attack ad reflects an extreme lack of sensitivity,” the letter said. “At worst, it’s bigoted and anti-Semitic. Either way, the mailer is offensive and raises serious questions about Tyler Diep’s fitness to serve in the Legislature.”
Diep’s campaign denied that the image was anti-Semitic, invoking Diep’s own ethnic heritage.
“Tyler is Vietnamese and fled Communist persecution – he is highly sensitive to attempts at exploiting stereotypes to score political points,” the campaign’s statement said, according to The Los Angeles Times.
The 2018 campaign ended with a flurry of other ads and messages that drew criticism for playing on implicit or explicit anti-Semitism. Some of them were issued after the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, which led to a national outpouring of support for Jewish people.
A Green Party congressional candidate in the Cincinnati area launched a radio ad blaming “anti-American Communist Jews like George Soros” for fixing elections. The candidate, Jim Condit Jr., faced a Republican incumbent and was not supported by his own party.
“These massive Trump crowds are the real polls,” the ad says. “Not the fake lying polls put out by the big TV networks all controlled by billionaire Communist Jews.
“These same anti-American Communist Jews like George Soros also direct the three computer election vendors, which have connived their way into counting 95 percent plus of our votes on their secret computer programs, with no effective checks and balances …. They fix close elections if they think they can get away with it.”
The manager for the two radio stations running the ad told The Cincinnati Enquirer that he is legally obligated to run campaign ads, even if they have racist or anti-Semitic content.
Condit has railed previously against Zionist control of world politics and claimed that Jews had a role in the 9/11 attacks in 2001.
The Republican Party has also put out a number of ads singling out Soros, a leading liberal donor, that do not mention his religion. In one, he is shown alongside a pile of money.
Ohio Rep. Steve Stivers, chairman of the National Republican Campaign Committee, denies that the ads are anti-Semitic.
A robocall sent to Georgia voters Friday impersonating Oprah Winfrey featured what The Washington Post called “60 seconds of racism” and anti-Semitism.
The call was an attack on Democrat Stacey Abrams, a black woman, who is vying with Republican Brian Kemp, who supports President Donald Trump, for governor there.
“This is the magical negro, Oprah Winfrey, asking you to make my fellow negress, Stacey Abrams, the governor of Georgia,” the robocall said.
“Years ago, the Jews who own the American media saw something in me: the ability to trick dumb, white women into thinking I was like them and to do, read and think what I told them to.”
The robocall was produced by TheRoadToPower.com, an anti-Semitic video site that’s targeted divisive political campaigns, according to The Post.

RT: Amid [US-UK-Fr backed] Saudi-led bombing, Pompeo pins responsibility for starvation in Yemen… on Iran
The result is what some observers openly call a man-made humanitarian disaster, with millions of Yemenis estimated by the UN to be on the brink of starvation, and dozens dying each day from malnutrition and preventable disease.
But according to US State Secretary Mike Pompeo this is, to a large degree, Iran’s fault.
Much of the harm that’s taking place there comes from the fact that the Iranians continue to supply weapons and missiles to the Houthi rebels that are fighting there in Saudi Arabia. They are responsible for the starvation in Yemen as well.
Pompeo voiced the accusation on Fox News on Sunday as he was advocating a ceasefire in Yemen. The US believes that the Houthis should lay down arms first, after which the Saudi-led coalition may do the same.
The latter, which receives arms, air refueling and intelligence from Washington, reportedly responded to the calls of ceasefire by intensifying attacks on its Houthi opponents. Riyadh maintains, however, that its planes are hitting “legitimate military targets”
Despite what politicians and mainstream media may lead their audiences to believe, the support the Houthis receive from Iran is a far cry from what the Saudis claim, investigative journalist Max Blumenthal told RT.
“They had re-commandeered billions of dollars of weapons that the US supplied to the deposed and dead dictator [Ali Abdullah] Saleh and worked alongside the Yemeni army, which was formerly supported by the US, not Iran. Iran is supplying some political and media support, but not the weapons that our government and the Saudis claim. So the idea of a proxy war is false.”
RT (Video): Saudi-led Yemen strikes destroy UK aid with British bombs – Oxfam slams London’s ‘incoherent’ policy
UK charity Oxfam has expressed alarm at coalition-led air strikes repeatedly hitting British aid projects in Yemen. An Oxfam representative brands Britain’s approach to Yemen ‘incoherent’, adding that the humanitarian crisis there continues to worsen with medical facilities and water supply systems being targeted. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6zS2dfnsWg
Fighting Russia, China and al-Qaeda simultaneously requires more money
Some believe that the Cold War ended in 1991, when the Soviet Union fell apart. In retrospect, many observers also believe that a golden opportunity was missed to heal the wounds inflicted by over 45 years to hostility between the Washington and Moscow.
Rather than encouraging development of a Russia that would adhere to Western European norms for elections, transparency and individual liberties, some in Europe and America instead sought to steal the country’s natural resources and other assets, a process that went on for some years under President Boris Yeltsin.
The looting went hand-in-hand with particularly inept political moves on the part of President Bill Clinton, who ignored end of Cold War agreements to not use the break-up of the Soviet Union as an excuse to bring its former member states in Eastern Europe into NATO or any other military alliance hostile to Russia.
The process of NATO expansion continues to this day, together with military maneuvers and the placement of new missile systems right along the Russian border, increasing Moscow’s justifiable paranoia about its security.
The military moves have been accompanied by a political deep freeze, particularly ironic as President Donald Trump during his campaign for office pledged to improve relations with Russia.
They are now at their lowest ebb since the hottest days of the Cold War, including as they do the totally bogus sanctioning of Russian government officials under the maliciously conceived Magnitsky Act and the ongoing saga of Russiagate, which blames Moscow for interference in America’s 2016 election, so far without any real evidence being provided.
For those who think all of this is theater, think again. Some critics are beginning to recognize that the United States has become a country addicted to war and one need look no farther than the federal budget, where everything is being cut except military spending, which is set to increase even though there is no country or group of countries in the world that genuinely threaten the U.S.
Two recent stories in particular demonstrate just how far Washington has gone towards accepting that war has more-or-less become a natural condition for the United States of America.
The first is an article “After years of fighting insurgencies, the Army pivots to training for a major war” that has largely been ignored, regarding how the U.S. military is changing its doctrine and training to enable it to fight a major war against a powerful national opponent.
Previously, the armed forces were emphasizing countering non-government hostile agents like al-Qaeda and ISIS, the so-called counter-insurgency doctrine or COIN.
According to Pentagon spokesmen, the shift is in recognition of the fact that over the horizon major conflicts are no longer as unthinkable as they once were.
According to the article, U.S. commanders are now beginning to emphasize the type of training that prevailed during the Cold War, tanks against tanks, artillery bombardments, and use of close air support.
The change in doctrine derives from the 2018 National Defense Strategy assessment, which identified four national players that might go to war with the United States. They are major powers Russia and China, supplemented by nuclear North Korea and conventionally armed Iran.
The transition was discussed by former and current senior officers at the recent annual meeting of the Association of the U.S. Army, with particular concern being expressed that the “lessons learned” from the past seventeen years of insurgency warfare not be lost as the military returns to a more conventional model.
There was also concern that the army is insufficiently resourced to continue to fight insurgencies while also taking on a major conventional component.
Some officers believed that the army can handle both jobs simultaneously, but others were not so sure, observing that one really needs two distinct armies, one trained for conventional warfare and the other trained for insurgency operations, which are far more likely to occur and which are more difficult to manage.
Between Petraeus’ comment on “big” resources and Swan’s on enemies to be killed as “high-end competitors” one might well begin to understand what today’s bloated defense establishment is all about.
More money and business school jargon to euphemize wars and killing, with little regard for the possible consequences, including those competitors’ possession of nuclear weapons and the ability to deliver them on target.
Russia has already warned that if it were attacked by a superior force (NATO) it would used tactical nuclear weapons as a first resort to defend itself. So much for learning tank gunnery.
The second article, also little commented on, made plain that the “competitive” army that is now evolving won’t be just some pretty toy sitting on a shelf unused.
The former US commander in Europe from 2014-7 retired Lt. General Ben Hodges spoke at the Warsaw Security Forum on October 24th, where he told NATO allies that they would have to increase defense spending because the United States will not be able to protect them against a “resurgent Russia” while it is fighting China.
He predicted that the U.S. will probably be at war with China within 15 years to protect its interests in the Pacific region.
Hodges cited increasing tension between Washington and Beijing in the South China Sea, China’s alleged “constant stealing [of] technology,” and Beijing’s perfectly legal purchasing of infrastructure in Africa, Latin America and Europe through the funding of and investment in projects.
There was no mention of China actually threatening the United States and those were presumably Hodges’ reasons for going to war against a powerful nuclear armed nation.
Hodges is currently a strategic expert with the Center for European Policy Analysis, a Washington-based think tank that is heavily funded by globalists, NATO governments, and democracy promoters.
Supporters include the U.S. government funded National Endowment for Democracy, the U.S. Mission to NATO, the NATO Public Diplomacy Division, the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of State, the Lockheed Martin Corporation, the Raytheon Company, the European Defense Agency, the Chevron Corporation, Bell Helicopter, Textron Systems and BAE Systems.
Oh yes, and also the neocon heavy United States Institute of Peace. The Center’s “experts” and staff are top heavy with Eastern Europeans who are focused on the threat from Russia, as is the institute. Donations to the Center are fully tax deductible by the IRS.
Palestine Chronicle: Israel is Afraid of Khalida Jarrar because She Shatters Its False Democratic Image
[And she’s been imprisoned without charges in Israel under harsh conditions by the cowardly, malevolent Jews since 2015 - Kj]
By Ramzy Baroud
When Israeli troops stormed the house of Palestinian parliamentarian and lawyer Khalida Jarrar on April 2, 2015, she was engrossed in her research.
For months, she had been leading a Palestinian effort to take Israel to the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Her research on that very evening was related directly to the kind of behavior that allows a group of soldiers to handcuff a respected Palestinian intellectual, throw her in jail with no trial and have no accountability for their action.
Jarrar was released in June 2016 after spending more than a year in jail, only to be arrested once more, on 2 July last year. She remains in an Israeli prison to this day. On 28 October, her “administrative detention” was renewed for the fourth time.
There are thousands of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, most of them held outside the militarily-occupied Palestinian territories, in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention.
Nearly 500 of these Palestinians are held with neither charge nor trial and detained for six-month periods that are renewed, sometimes indefinitely, by Israeli military courts with no legal justification whatsoever.
Jarrar is one of those “administrative detainees”.
The parliamentarian is not pleading with her jailers for her freedom.
Instead, she is keeping herself busy, educating her fellow prisoners about international law, offering classes and issuing statements to the outside world that reflect not only her refined intellect but also her resolve and strength of character.
Jarrar is relentless. Despite her failing health — she suffers from multiple ischemic infarctions and hypercholesterolemia, and was hospitalized due to severe bleeding resulting from epistaxis — her commitment to the cause of her people has not, in any way, weakened or faltered.
The 55-year-old lawyer has championed a political discourse that is largely missing amid the ongoing feud between the Palestinian Authority’s largest faction, Fatah, in the occupied West Bank, and Hamas in besieged Gaza.
As a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) and an active member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Jarrar has advocated the kind of politics that is not disconnected from the people and, especially, from the women who she strongly and uncompromisingly represents.
According to Jarrar, no Palestinian official should engage in any form of dialogue with Israel, because such engagement helps to legitimize a state that is founded on genocide and ethnic cleansing; a state that is currently carrying out various types of war crimes, the very crimes that Jarrar tried to expose before the ICC.
As such, she rejects the so-called “peace process”, a futile exercise that has no intention or mechanism aimed at “implementing international resolutions related to the Palestinian cause and recognizing the fundamental rights of the Palestinians.”
20 Palestinians Injured as 1,000 Settlers Storm Nablus
A thousand Israeli settlers raided the occupied West Bank city of Nablus last night to perform Jewish religious rituals in Joseph’s Tomb in the Balata neighborhood, the Palestinian news agency Wafa Palestinian reported.
Israeli occupation forces prevented Palestinians from accessing the area while the settlers were there.
Palestinians who attempted to block the roads to stop settlers trespassing were targeted by occupation forces who used live ammunition, rubber bullets, and teargas canisters to disperse them, injuring 20. One of those who sustained injuries was hit with a live round.
Joseph’s Tomb is located in Area A of the West Bank, which – under to the Oslo Accords – is under the full control of the Palestinian Authority.
In spite of this, occupation forces regularly provide settler protection to storm the area and carry out prayers there, limiting Palestinian movement and targeting those who stand in the way of the Jewish visit.
The left is useing words like “gun control” to gaslight the rest of humanity. We hear these words, and we think of “guns” or of “self-defense.”
But the left uses the words “gun control” as a smokescreen for building a police state based on a database of the psychological profile of each citizen. “Gun” control does not have anything to do with “guns.” it’s a codeword used by the left, for building a police state, controlled by the left.
“Gun control” really means POLICE STATE! based on a database on the psychological and political profile of EVERY citizen.
Fr. Sergei Sveshnikov: “A more perfect union”: Thoughts on the Election Day
Posted in Reflections, Uncategorized by Fr. Sergei Sveshnikov on 8 November 2018
I went to vote last Tuesday. Many people did. And as I cast my vote, I remembered something that happened a very, very long time ago—almost too long ago to remember, something that almost seems as if it were from a different life.
I was a child growing up in the Soviet Union. It was an election day there as well. I was too young to vote, but an election day was a big deal, and I recall that very clearly.
It was late in the evening, and my parents were talking about getting ready to go to the polling place before it closed. The place was very close—only about 300 meters-or-so away, at the school where I attended.
While they were talking about getting dressed, our doorbell rang. It was the police officer assigned to our precinct. No, he was not rude, he did not shove an AK47 into my parents’ faces. In fact, I remember him being very polite and professional.
Nonetheless, the police came to our door because my parents had not yet voted. They had to go.
As we all entered my school’s auditorium where the polling place had been set up, I remember it being festive, brightly lit, with red (of course, red!) carpets and table cloths, and with a large red box that had a gold emblem of the Soviet Union on the front (that easily-recognizable round one, with amber sheaves of grain surrounding the map of Eurasia from sea to shining sea).
I remember the ladies, the poll workers, all dressed up, one blond with a hairdo that she had clearly paid a lot of money for earlier that day at some salon, smiling and being very happy and polite. At least, I thought they were happy and polite.
They gave my parents their ballots and directed them to a private booth. I suppose, my parents wanted to give me a lesson in civic duties as they showed me their ballots, let me touch them, and explained what the different parts were.
The ballots were printed on thick, fancy paper, with gold embossed letters and emblems at the top—much, much fancier that what I was given on Tuesday at my local polling place in Portage, Wisconsin.
In very high quality jet-black ink, printed on the ballot, was one name of one candidate and a box to check next to his name. I very clearly remember that, as I remember my father smirking meaningfully when he showed it to me. Apparently, that was how it almost always was.
I was too young and it was too long ago for me to remember now what kind of an election it was or who was on the ballot. But the next day it was announced that the candidate won by a landslide—with almost 100% of the electorate voting to elect him.
I am not quite sure why it was ‘almost’ 100%, except that to announce on national news that it was 100% would have been awkward and incredible. Maybe, some people just didn’t check the box rightfully assuming that it did not matter.
This was a “long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away,” I was young, there are surely things I do not remember correctly. But let us not forget what we have here in the United States, let us not take it for granted, and let us not become complacent.
No our union and our system are not perfect. I always made fun of the phrase from the Preamble “a more perfect union”: “How can something be more perfect? It is either perfect, or it is not.” But now I see the wisdom of those who chose to use this term over any other.
The ultimate perfection is likely unattainable—not by us, not in this life. But what we have is so good in comparison to so many other systems that it could be called “as perfect as we could make it, and we can make it even more perfect, if we work at it.” (There is a reason why caravans are moving toward the United States, not away from it—not even to Canada, not after Obama was elected, and not after Trump was elected.)
Perfection—not heavenly perfection, but our, earthly, often less perfect, perfection—can indeed be a sliding scale. Things can indeed be more perfect, as long as we remain of the proper scale (unlike men, not all scales are created equal) and keep moving in the right direction.
We should not stop; we should keep trying to make our union “more perfect… and to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
