BARACK OBAMA’S STUDIED APPROACH to his media-informed 2008 presidential campaign has given him a leading edge over the plain and pale John McCain.

Particularly disturbing is Obama’s use of children in his media campaign in which Obama draws upon Hitleresque imagery. On October 2 2008, News Busters presented an Obama media ad which featured a group of children dressed in paramilitary uniforms ritualistically shouting out their praise for Obama. View Entire Story Here.

This use of children by Obama’s campaign staff, in a methodology reminiscent of ‘Hitler’s Youth,’ was a follow-up to a previous media ad which showed children chanting a tribute to Obama with fists high in the air, shouting out, “Obama, Obama!” View Entire Story Here.

Obama is indeed utilizing Hitler’s Youth program to create a “youthful” enthusiasm for his presidential bid. But not only this, the ad showing children dressed in paramilitary uniforms is a propagandizing “suggestive method” to prepare American youth for Obama’s compulsory ‘home service.’


BY A PROCESS OF GRADUALISM, Barack Obama will establish a ‘home service’ contingent made up of 14 to 24 year old American children patterned after ‘Hitler’s Youth.’

Do not be fooled by Obama’s call for “voluntary service.” Obama’s youth programs will be compulsory as stated within the text of his Web Site outline.

Obama plans on beginning with a program entitled, Green Job Corps, an energy-focused youth program, which will demand a mandatory & compulsory “50 hours of community service a year” for junior high and high school students — and “100 hours per year” for college students. Obama, the fascist puppet of his enablers, David Rockefeller & Zbigniew Brzezinksi, will thus bring our American youth under complete state control.

Following this “gradualism,” of what appears on the surface as an innocuous “energy-focused” youth program, Obama plans on establishing a mandatory paramilitary youth program which he dubs, The Ameri Corps. In this program, Obama will demand that American youth from ages 14 to 24 “serve” the needs of “defending America” as an adjunct to the US military.

Is it any wonder then that Obama is presenting himself as a Hitleresque role model for his coming fascist state? Voters beware!

    Appeal From Brother Nathanael:

    Dear Readers & Friends,

    To keep Real Jew News online, incurs much expense. This is now my 4th Web Hosting Company as the Simon Wiesenthal Center intimidated my 1st Web Co and the ADL, my last two. To change over so many times has put me in the hole by over $2000.

    This is not to mention the day to day costs of running Real Jew News. And not to mention the hours upon hours I dedicate to presenting factual and reader-friendly articles. The REAL COSTS of maintaing this Web Site which now averages close to 200,000 visits per month, include *Web Hosting,* a *Web Manager,* (again, on Saturday, Real Jew News went down for 7-8 hours), *band width costs* for text & mostly PICS, *research materials from,* (Today I had to CANCEL an order for 2 important books due to financial straits), and I also need help to keep the Street Evangelism going, which has suffered due to ADL incurred costs, as I had to CANCEL all travel plans, including DC.

    I have elected NOT to advertise. I want to keep a CLEAN looking and CLASSY site. BAND WIDTH is an important Web Site term. I have to pay for BAND WIDTH both in text and MOSTLY in pictures because of the MANY hits. The 200,000 per month HITS does NOT include MULTIPLE page visits which EATS into band width.

    I do not accept advertising on Real Jew News. I could, with a new Web format but I will not do it. So I am asking all of you to consider helping out… (Many commenters love to comment but do NOT donate, sad to say.)

    A DONATE button is at the TOP of every article and BOTTOM as well. Or a check/money order, Euros, dollars, can be sent to:

    Have you read this article, Br. Nathanael?

  5. Nicolae October 24, 2008 @ 6:07 am

    God bless you and kepp you Nathanael,yes America,this is going to be the last president of the country call America.The Federal Reserve Private Institution from 1913 has destroy this country.

    Can you people smell Revolution against The Synagogue of Satan when the dollar is going to colapse?Two years from now life in this country is going to be bad.Powell-There’s Going To Be A Crisis On The 21st,22nd Of Jan.Zionist Biden,Mark my words,there is going to be crisis in the first 6 months of Obama’s presidency.What????

    What kind of crisis??Another terorist atack like the 9/11 and blame it on Iran??O yes.On Monday Sep 30,we receive an e-mai from a trusted propfet about an imminent terrorist attack on America.Her vision revealed that it hits New York,it;s done by Arabic countries,the bloodshed will be worst than 9/11& she saw the American flag at half mast for many days.

    Maybe she is a zionist propfet to,haw nice to blame the Muslims.Why God never mention in the most important book of the Bible about this?Why God doe’s not say anything about the muslims in the Book of Revelation?

    Why God mention in Revelation 2;9:3;9 that the so call jews are the Synagogue of Satan.I’t going to be done by the same people that did the 9/11.They want to destroy Iran,but,this time is not going to work.The whole world knows that the cave man were not smart enouf to fly the plane.It will backfire on America.

    This is my personal believe,Putin is going to destroy America,i can see it.America has become the most evil,corupt,demon poses country on the face of the world.Revelation 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice,saying,BABYLON the great is fallen,is fallen,and is become the habitation of devils,and the hold of every foul spirit,and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

    18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of Her fornication,and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with Her,and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of Her delicacies.Read the whole chapter of Revelation 18 to understand the end of America. Zechariah 1:20 And the Lord shewed me four carpenters. 2:1 I LIFTED up mine eyes again,and looked,and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand. 2:2 Then said I,Whither goest thou?And he said unto me,To measure Jerusalem,to see what is the breadth thereof,and what is the length thereof. 2:3 And,behold,the angel that talked with me went forth,and another angel went out to meet him.

    2:4 And said unto him,Run,speak to this young man,saying,Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein. 2:5 For I,saith the Lord,will be unto HER a wall of fire round about,and will be the glory in the midst of Her. So,for you out there people that believe in the zionist deception of the KAZARS Chosen People that now live in IsraHell,think again.God is not a lier,the Synagogue of Satan are.Palestine=6 milion Kazars,i’t a prison camp with high walls,no cattle,no prosperity,no future,nothing.We are Israel,Where they migrated after they were taken captives?Europe,Caucasia,Danemark,Danube,Uk, etc.The real people of the tribe of Juda are the Palestinian.

    You are deceive by those zionist,pimp,prosperity criminals like Benny Hinn,Creflo Dollar,Joel Osteen,Kenneth Copeland,Robert Tilton,T.D Jakes,Rod Prsley,Kenneth Hagin,Rick Warren,Paul Crouch,Jesse Duplantis,Paula White,Brian McClaren,Tod Bentley,JOHN HAGEE(AIPAC)Wake up people,wake up you that are the real chosen people of God.Jesus die for all of us,we don’t need to believe that some mongols,turkis people from Caspian See basin that Sacrifice Chichens are God chosen.

    God bless you all and keep you.

    I’m going to send some money next weak Nathanael.God bless you.

    Hitler came unto the scene, before WWII, in exactly times as these. The manipulated economy by the banksters, had inflated the German mark to the point of almost no value-just as our monetary system is becoming more hyper inflated through the orchestrated stock market crash.

    As the “federal reserve” prints more valueless dollars, inflation will continue it’s rise, destabilizing the “global economy”.Combined with the pinch felt deep in the common man’s pocket, an “American fuhrer” is soon to rise from the ashes, like a phoenix,whose coming is after the workings of Satan.

    The experiment of Hitler’s Germany finds fruition in the “last days”, as this false prophet from “the earth, having two horns like a lamb,speaking as a dragon”(revelation 13:vs 11): promotes fascism/atheistic communism, as the cure for not only national and global terrorism; but a fading economy as well! This charismatic answer man has the answers, because he is PART OF THE PROBLEM!

    Make no mistake about it, “evil hides behind a mask of flesh”, having no “racial boundaries”. Jew, gentile, black or white,”he(the devil)causeth ALL, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads”.(rev.13:16)

    Alliance with this “beast” rewards it’s adherents with a “blood bath”(“as many as would not worship the image of the beast,SHOULD BE KILLED”.Rev.13:15); and eternal damnation! (Rev.14:9-11)

    Do you see? With the Devil, there are always strings attached with his rewards-punishment, for he hates all men created in the “image of God”. His goal is not to save the world, but destroy it. Believing world peace is obtained through globalization, without the true God, is deception that dupes the masses of humanity.

    This deception is terminal NOW. The “great apostasy” is NOW. Antichrist is NOW! My advice to all reading is this: “wake up though that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee life!”

    This is nice,America is very desperate.

    USA introduces more sanctions against Russia’s defence export enterprise.

    Ria Novosti.U.S Imposes sanctions against Russian state arms exporters. Zionist,criminal, Babylon, Israhell, Prostitute(America), impose sanction on Russia?

    They think Russia is Iraq, the zionist think Putin is Castro???

    While everyone is going about the business of attacking Barak Obama and his “Blackness,” many are overlooking the fact he is not a Black American via the Black experience in America. He is “African” American as he is borne of an “AFRICAN father and a White American Mother. hence his “BLACK” experience is entirely different from those of Black America.

    African AMerican is a corruption of the term Black American and many can fit into the African American tag as proven by Thersea Kerry when she announced she too was “African Amerian” because she was borne in Mozanbique…Obama hinself does not identify with Black Americans.

    Also take note that “Black Americans” are in charge of nothing in America with few “allowed” to fully participate in the “American Dream.” And if they forget their place, they will simply be put back to whence they came, broke, broken and ostracized by both Blacks and Whites alike i.e. O.J./Michael Vick etc 😉 In Obamas case what we are seeing is the illusion of being large and in chage but much like the story of the Wizard of OZ, pull back the curtain and you will see the true instigators(s)/leader(s) of this Facist movement towards a One World Order.

    As for the age of his youth corp…This is the prime age for brain washing of children as they are easily impressionable at age 14, an age when they are seeking self identity. It will be up to the parents of these children to circumvent this “SERVICE” of their children which has nothing to do with education but more to do with raising an unthinking, order taking zombie corp who will do the bidding of those in charge.

    In comparison, they will be like soilders who in basic training are brain washed into giving up self identity and forming a group mentality, ready to act at the whim of their appointed leaders. Imagine a corp of these youth if you will: Young, strong, with a belief they are invincible (as all youth think at that age)and brain washed.

    They will be running around turning on family, friends with an over zealous approach. Scary….Very Scary indeed. As stated: This is a page out of Hitler’s play book.

  13. Ed October 24, 2008 @ 10:46 am

    My hope is that Obama is merely the last gasp of post-Christian left-liberalism before Christian order is restored to Western civilization.

    Just look at our trajectory: Christianity mixed with the Greco-Roman tradition of technology, science, inquiry and philosophy combined to create the greatest civilization in the history of man: Western civilization. One component was essential for the operation of the other, and the success of the whole.

    Then Western Civilization allowed the Judeofascists and the atheistic socialist/communist/left-liberals to gain a foothold, and they undertook overt (Communism) and subversive (socialism, hyper-capitalism) wars against the Christian component. There was a brief period of prosperity built upon science and technology (post WWII) before our current rapid decline, which is the result of the destruction by Judeofascists, Zionists (both Christian and Jewish) leftists and materialists of the Christian component.

    Either we can continue to stand idly by and watch Judeofascists and their left/right materialists allies in our midst undermine and erode Christianity until Western civilization declines to final collapse, or we can run them out on a rail — and begin by deporting the treasonous nation of Zion to its home base in Israel.

    God is order; Judeofascists, leftists and money-worshippers are chaos. We have a responsibility to impose order on chaos. Anything less is a betrayal of God, and is in fact a denial of Him. Those who defy God are ultimately always on the losing end of history. Those align themselves with His order will win, and gain the world.

    No doubt many Americans will fall , in their minds it will be a good day for them to die.
    but they will not prevail for the stars and the moon have aligned against the present day situation.
    they will exclaim
    is it true that you have forgotten me”
    but neither their machinations or pleas for help will be heard.
    For a nation that has turned it’s back on the creator has but themselves to blame.
    All chance was given to a NAtion of men to be responsible and to walk upright.But look around you at the degradation of the human spirit and soul,the crime so rampant that men will attack other men for the littlest thing as being brushed by another when walking down the street ,the killing of a shop clerk for 40 $ etc….
    The sin of man is to be judge by the creator and not or you or I. However this state of degradation must give way to another system of things and must be imposed as the people will and its unwillingness to effect change has come to a head.
    The financial situation in America has triggered these events. Naked shorts causing companies to be closed down
    ,jobs lost has reached epic proportions .
    A result of evil men who covet money at the expense of million of jobs .
    A new paradigm with new partnership is coming every thing around you will is worthless you money will turn to dust
    everything is lost America has no choice to implement these changes .We can debate
    freedom until the cows come home, but men with machine guns and kids with revolvers is a thing of the past.
    Whether you embrace this or not is not open for discussion those are for the things of the past .
    Americans have a foggy idea of reality they
    have endured an occult past and a rigorous
    propaganda regiment.
    the day of the locusts are upon America,the dire situation facing Americans
    is not a financial hiccup they are systemic what is know as a general break is a situation where continual degradation is in effect.
    You can decide to live free and independent and live in a sty of the third world or reach a settlement with others to lift the spirit of man
    No doubt Americans that live in million dollar mansions can afford to have a sty built up around them but for the ghetto
    dwellers this is intolerable. in a projection of 50 years all of America will be a ghetto with tiny islands of wealth
    the American people will not allow that to happen.
    A myopic view is often a very sensible course but it leads to inevitable futures
    and your nations future under a such a myopic view is one of a hell on earth.

    We can continue with the present day system
    to the land of Sodom and Gomorrah
    or leave the land of nod and join with others in a more equitable system for all
    where dignity is in all the people
    we can still have wealthy people but not at the expense of a dignified existence
    for all mankind.
    make all the billionaires you want but no man is without enough money to live and roof over his head.
    as a system in Canada can provide and will provide.Many people cringe and call me crazy when I drop the remark Americans will live under Canadian laws.
    But it does not change your future nor the facts.the days of racist view belligerency,rampant crime,greed at the expense of dignity,etc.. are in it’s last throws.
    You will come to love the new system more than the old one in time.
    It will not be a prefect one but it will be a better one.
    and will negate the general break down now in place in America.

    the obama youth system may frighten some but
    the boy scouts are also a youth system wearing uniforms and with secret hand signs
    Do not judge on a cursory glance

    Being a white anglo Of Canada who’s Family has
    been here prior to your nation being founded
    I can say that This time Change is really going to come
    whether by electronic machine or by other means
    the new president has been decided on
    trying to convince people who to vote for is an utter waste of time

    your leaders will not heed your calls will not heed the constitution will not heed the laws of the land for they are not and never were your servants,they are merely there to give illusions of freedom.

    As tempting as it is to jump to conclusions based on the potential and actual capacities of various parties to bring death, destruction and chaos upon the world, predictive attempts are often not accurate, or are completely off.

    We won’t know what is truly well hidden until we are looking back upon it. As well meaning as our host is in warning of the likely possible outcomes, it would be wrong to attempt to draw conclusions ahead of the facts.

    We should all perhaps look close to home to see if we are ready ourselves to make a positive difference in the uncertain future that lies ahead.

    Prepare to protect yourself, and to stand up for what is right before God, and pray for his guidance. Who knows, we may still find real hope in the days to come. If there is not individual hope and stability, there will be none for society.

    Hold your fire until you see the whites of their eyes, when they come, and pray. Peace.

    This analysis is plain silly.

    Obama is not remotely comparable to Hitler.

    One was a despiable hater and genocidal murderer, the other is a man that even his political opponents call “decent,” and the promoter of unity and good-will among his fellow men.

    Check out this commo rap song by Obama supporters in Philadelphia …

    The crypto-Marxist Obama is hardly another National Socialist like Hitler; but is he another Kerensky? If he is, America should watch out for the one who succeeds him if he gets assassinated. I don’t think it’ll be Biden.

    Kerensky has been described as having the “heart of a lion and the brains of a sheep”, and he even looked a bit like Obama in another colour.

    What do you think of this encyclopedic entry …

    “Kerensky adopted a policy that isolated the right-wing conservatives, both democratic and monarchist-oriented. His philosophy of “no enemies to the left” greatly empowered the Bolsheviks and gave them a free hand, allowing them to take over the military arm or “voyenka” of the Petrograd and Moscow Soviets …

    His arrest of Kornilov and other officers left him without strong allies against the Bolsheviks, who ended up being Kerensky’s strongest and most determined adversaries, as opposed to the right wing, which evolved into the White Movement.”

    For the White Movement see …

  21. Visitor2 October 24, 2008 @ 4:35 pm

    I would be more concerned about those behind Obama to whom he is totally obedient. The media portrays him as a leader, but that is not the case. He is a face on a set of prepared radical changes to the United States. That he was selected to implement this changes just shows how radical they are to be: any resistance will be labeled racism, and that is Obama’s only purpose.

    Obama: Man of the World
    Published: March 6, 2007
    Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

    Obama: Muslim Call to Prayer “One of the Prettiest Sounds on Earth at Sunset”, Chants Prayer in Arabic Accent

    In a free-ranging interview with the New York Times, Obama described the Muslim call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.” The Times’ Nicholos Kristof wrote Obama recited, “with a first-class [Arabic] accent,” the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer. The first few lines of the call to prayer state:

    “Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!

    I witness that there is no god but Allah

    I witness that there is no god but Allah

    I witness that Muhammad is his prophet… ”

    Blessings of Our Lord with Brother Nathanael and you all!

    I want to make a general statement. The most dangerous is not an ignorance, but half knowledge. This caused and continue to cause all troubles in the world. All former world political leaders, like lenin, stalin, hitler etc. had some knowledge, yeah they were very educated for their time, yeah right, but they all lack one thing, the most important spiritual integrity and freedom. I think this is the problem of their master, whom they slavishly serve, lucifer itself, “light bearer”, light of half knowledge. Because True Knowledge, The Way, The Truth and Life, Filling Everything in All is Only Jesus Christ.

  27. Orthodox Russian October 24, 2008 @ 11:43 pm

    Did you know that mother of Obama is probably Jewish?

    This article in Judicial Inc makes it seem so. If those really are his grandparents that are shown there they definitely look Jewish, & his mother looks pretty Jewish. If so, that would mean that Obama is a CryptoJew. This may be a reason why he’s been selected to be the Democratic nominee from the looks of things probably the president in ’08? & if it is true, why has this information evaded the attention of even the anti-Zionist movement?

  28. triston October 25, 2008 @ 8:22 am

    Mc SHAME is a more of a threat than obama, he has a documented record of lawlessness, TREASON lies, coruption,and criminal activity that has lasted 40 years–

    the merchants of DEATH–in the zionist controled republic—RAT party–have run this country into the ground—at the bidding of thier evil hook nosed jew controlers

    jaun mc shame is a traitor–and a cockeyed lying DEVIL—HE and his edomite zionist mafia–pose a real threat to ALL OF HUMANITY

    your story is very unfair to obama–at least he seems to be intelligent–and is more likly to seek peace— and he does not have a 50 year record of lawless -unlike the jew-controlled $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ puppets in the republican–mafia

    “Obama is not remotely comparable to Hitler.

  31. Michael K. October 25, 2008 @ 12:36 pm

    Dear Brother Nathanael,

    After mulling this over some more, I agree within the context of the overall spiritual forces which both draw upon for their charm. It is clear to me that “Ericksonian Hynotherapy,” which Obama is alleged to use, is the confirmation of my gut impression of him, colloquially, as the “Magic Mullato.” He is altogether using a type of ‘magnetism,’ which, depending upon his true motives may be a real sin.
    The spiritual similarities are many, and I see what you mean. Whether ‘They’ will succeed this time I want to call into question…

  32. Orthodox Russian October 25, 2008 @ 5:53 pm

    @ KathJuliane,

    I always greatly enjoy reading all your comments. Blessings of Our Savoir with you. I even gathered your comments in one and was trying to systematize it. In my opinion you could write excellent theological articles defending true Orthodox Faith.

  33. Hoff October 25, 2008 @ 6:14 pm

    How do he jew mafia control the majority?

    Louis Marshall is head of the American Jewish Committee |AJC], and the American Jewish Committee is head of all official Jewish activity in the United States.

    “Over 100 years later, AJC continues its efforts to promote pluralistic and democratic societies where all minorities are protected.

    AJC is an international think tank and advocacy organization that attempts to identify trends and problems early – and take action. Our key areas of focus are:”

    “AJC delegationled by Louis Marshall plays leding role in the Paris Peace Conference [1919] dicision to include minorty-protection provision in post-World War I peace treaties.”

    As you see the jew mafia is behind all the “minority rights” in the whole world. Nobody – but the jew mafia – is pushing for “minority rights”.

    Immigrants rights, Gay rights, Gay marriage, Feminism, Queer-Transexual rights, Pedophile’s rights, … take any minority and the jew mafia is behind, all the propounders are jews. Every single person that is pushing “minority rights” are jews.

    – But there are non-jews that are pushing for minority rights? Of course there are – because the jew mafia that owns all of the “media” is ALLOWING those non-jews. You would never have heard one singel word from thos “Minoritys rights activist” non-jews if the jew mafia diden’t give them airtime. Those non-jews are nobodys, village idiots = Dumbing down the (m)asses.

    What this “minority rights” is all about is to install: The Dictatorship of Minority.

    “Democracy” is a flat earth thinking. America has population 300 million, one third, 100 million vote and who decide in the end? There are 435 in congress and 100 in senate, one Vice President and one “president”. If you can take control of those 537 people – you control America.

    Well, you don’t even have to control the 537, it’s enough to control 270 of those people, do that and you control America.

    The jew mafia don’t hang around and wait for you to give them “power” by casting your ballot, your vote every fourth year, the jew mafia Takes Power.

    And this is one of many differences between the stupid, gullible goyim and the jew mafia: Goyim – Can you give me? The Jew mafia: We take what we want!

    The jew mafia: How can we control America? We take over all the major papers, tv and radio stations, then we can push anything we decide and we take control of 270 people in office, then we control America.

    “Democracy” is not about how the majority can control the minority, “democracy” is about how a small minority can control the majority.

    If a mionority can rul the majority, then you have Dictatorship of the Minority. That’s why the jew mafia is pushing “minority rights”. Tje jew mafia is crying, whining and whining about how much they love and care about “minority rights”, when the truth is that the only minority they care about is themself.

    How do you as a minority control the (m)asses? By legislation, you write the laws and turn the whole judicial and police apparatus against the majority, and that is what the jew mafia did in Soviet and are doing today in the whole western world – The Dictatorship of Minority.

    A small group of mafia jews controls the minority that we, the stupid goyim think is in control because we cast a not with an X every fourth year. Real power you don’t get, real power yuo take. And that’s what the jew mafia is doing – they take power!

    The jew mafia: How do we take power? We push Minority rights! The
    Dictatorship of Minority!

    Back to headline: How do he jew mafia control the majority?

    ADL has long been in the forefront of national and state efforts to deter and counteract hate-motivated criminal activity. Hate crime statutes are necessary because the failure to recognize and effectively address this unique type of crime could cause an isolated incident to explode into widespread community tension.

    In June 1993, the United States Supreme Court upheld a Wisconsin hate crime statute that was based on model legislation originally drafted by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in 1981.1

    Minority rights anyone?

    Dear Hoff, you are right on the money. Now what does the word
    “white american” mean when they
    talk about his mother? Nothing.
    just trying to mask, smoke screen reality: she was a jewess
    and still is a jewess and nobody
    can change that. so he is in the same leage with all other (half-blood) “heros”: 1/2 and 1/2 –
    lenin, stalin, hitlr, goebl, borman, churchl, clntns,attatrk,
    franko, musslni, thatchr, -legions and legions. all supers, selected by their folks.
    There is no way anybody can have
    any debate with them without
    medical authorities certifying
    their sanity.everything else is just Dust. good luck.

    Greetings in the Lord from No Cal US of Talmudistan,

    The crypto-Communist Hillary Clinton wrote: “It Takes A Whole Village to Raise a Child”.

    KathJ says: “It takes one person to be the Village Idiot.”

    The following is NOT predictive at all. It is simply an interesting story pattern with certain spiritual dimensions that came to me regarding the delusional, ecstatic frenzy around the Village Idiot.

    The Obama-rama Charmfest is taking on the resemblance of a Haman-esque Carnival with echoes of the ancient winter Saturnalia. In Italy, France, and Spain, where the influence of pagan Rome was deepest and most lasting, a conspicuous feature of the Carnival is a burlesque effigy personifying the festive season, which after a short career of glory and public dissipation is publicly burnt, shot, or otherwise destroyed, to the feigned grief or genuine delight of the populace. Such characters were the King of the Bean on the Twelfth Night and the mediaeval Bishop of Fools, Abbot of Unreason. If the view here suggested of the Carnival is correct, then this grotesque personage is no other than a direct successor of the old King of the Saturnalia, the ancient Lord of Misrule, a mock king once put to death as a representative of Saturn in an earlier and more barbarous age.

    It was the universal practice in ancient Italy, wherever the worship of Saturn prevailed, to choose a man who played the part and enjoyed all the traditional privileges of Saturn for a season, and then died, whether by his own or another’s hand, whether by the knife or the fire or on the gallows-tree, in the character of the “good god” who gave his life for the world. In Rome itself and other great towns the growth of civilization had probably mitigated this cruel custom long before the Augustan age, and transformed it into the more benign shape it wears in the writings of the few classical writers who bestow a passing notice on the holiday King of the Saturnalia. However, in the frontier areas the story was more darkly sinister.

    But no feature of the festival is more remarkable, which struck the ancient writers themselves, was the license granted to slaves at this time. The distinction between the free and the servile castes was temporarily abolished. The slave might rail at his master, intoxicate himself like his betters, sit down at table, and not even a word of reproof would be administered, when at any other season the slave might have been punished with stripes, imprisonment and even death. Masters actually changed places with their slaves and waited on them at table. So far was the inversion of ranks carried, that each household became for a time a mimic republic in which the high offices of state were discharged by the slaves, who gave their orders and laid down the as if they were indeed invested with all the dignity of the consulship, the praetorship, and the bench.

    In later antiquity, freemen at the Saturnalia cast lots at the same season for the mock kingship. The person on whom the lot fell enjoyed the title of mock king, and issued commands of a playful and ludicrous nature to his temporary subjects.

    When we compare this comic monarch of the gay, the civilized metropolis with his grim counterpart in a rude soldier’s camp on the Danube, we find the life of the Holy Martyr Dasius. The Holy Martyr Dasius, a Roman soldier, lived during the third century in the city of Dorostolum on the Danube River. The inhabitants of the city were preparing for a festival in honor of the pagan god Saturn. By custom, thirty days before the celebration they selected a handsome youth, dressed him in fine clothing, and accorded him royal honors, and he would go forth in public made up like Saturn. For thirty days, he would indulge in wicked deeds and immoral pleasures. On the day of the feast he was brought before the idols and either cut his own throat on the altar as a sacrifice to Saturn.

    The choice of his pagan Roman compatriots fell upon St Dasius, since in the city there was not a more handsome youth. Learning of this, the saint refused to play the part of the pagan god and soil his last days with debauchery. The threats and arguments of his commanding officer Bassus failed to shake his constancy. He said, “If I am fated to die, then it’s better to die for Christ as a Christian.” He openly confessed his faith in Christ before his fellow citizens and refused to take part in the shameful ritual. He denounced the impiety and error of the idolaters and converted many of them to Christ. Therefore, on the orders of the emperors Diocletian (284-305) and Maximian (305-311), he was beheaded after cruel tortures.

    Saturn [Heb STVR=60+400+6+200=666] = Nimrod =Rebel

    Satan has set up a burlesque of Christ in the Obama-rama.

    Thank you for flying Air Talmud

    ILLUSION (sometimes ‘delusion’): according to the Fathers, literally means wandering astray, deflection from the right path; hence error, beguilement, the acceptance of a mirage mistaken for truth; the literal sense of sin as ‘missing the mark’.

    @ Michael K- Some book recommendations: ~ The First Created Man~ by St. Simeon the New Theologian (11th century), translated from St. Theophan the Recluse Russian translation of the Greek texts with an introduction by Fr. Seraphim Rose. St. Symeon is one of the only three great Fathers whom the Church has granted the title of “Theologians” or speakers about God par excellence.

    Fr. Seraphim Rose wrote an important expose ~Nihilism: the Root of Revolution in the Modern Age~ a slim volume of about $9.00 but very penetrating. He could write about this pernicious spirit, the spirit of nihilism, because he lived intoxicated by it before his conversion to Russian Orthodoxy.

    This brief expose describes that which drives modernity and is really a sign post for those genuinely searching for Truth from a philosophical angle. He describes the philosophy from his Orthodox Christian worldview, the modern, worldwide, cultural, philosophical, spiritual formation of the satanic Revolution that can only be understood as a clear indicator of the world’s place in history now, a time referred to in the Holy Scriptures as the Apostasy (Revolt). Something I found interesting was Father Seraphim’s reference to Hitler as simply a ‘magician.’ Nazi Germany (as well as the communist experiments) for Father Seraphim, was a massive and shocking manifestation of the spirit of nihilistic praxis, a manifestation that will culminate at the end of time in the person of the antichrist, who will also have magical, demonic powers to manipulate his following. Father Seraphim’s book teaches us of the present to remind us of Truth, and warns us of the future, a darker, and more malignant image of today. It’s worth the read, if you are inclined.

    Also useful for more building blocks of your “catholic consciousness”, [which I’m guessing was something of an apophatic process like Chesterton] ~The Philokalia~ as another, which is a collection of saying-texts written between the 4th and the 15th centuries by spiritual masters of the Orthodox Christian tradition (Latin and Greek Fathers, btw), and one of the mainstays of practical “ascetic theology” of Christian invisible warfare. It was first published in Greek in 1782, translated into Slavonic and later into Russian, and then English about 1981. Particularly useful should be the glossary at the back of any one of the five volumes as a primer of concise definitions and contexts underlying the Orthodox “Greek” thought of spiritual warfare.

    In Volume 2, we find St. Maximos the Confessor (580-662) and his extreme importance to Orthodox spiritual tradition is indicated by the fact that no other writer is assigned so much space in the ~Philokalia~. A member of the Byzantine Roman aristocracy, after receiving an elaborate education St. Maximos served at first in the civil service, perhaps as secretary to Caesar Heraklios. About 614 he became a monk at the monastery Phillipikos near Constantinople .

    In his numerous writings St. Maximos discusses almost all aspects of Christian truth, including the interpretation of Scripture, the doctrine of the incarnation, ascetic practice, and the Divine Liturgy. He insisted upon the close link between dogma and prayer.

    I’m still mulling the content of your post on Reich. However, St. Maximos writes: “God who created all nature with wisdom and secretly planted in each intelligent being knowledge of Himself as its first power, like a munificent Lord gave also to us men a natural desire and longing for Him, combining it in a natural way with the power of our intelligence [reason, and intellect-or ~nous~., as two parts of the mind]. Using our intelligence, we struggle so as to learn with tranquility and without going astray how to realize this natural desire. Impelled by it we are led to search out the truth, wisdom and order manifest harmoniously in all creation, aspiring through them to attain Him by whose grace we receive the desire.

    @ KathJuliane:

    There’s a lot of things in the Saturnalia/Sacrificial King tradition that fit Obama, I agree. Interesting, because I have been thinking of him, in the limo with Larry Sinclair trading sex and lines of coke, as a kind of kamikaze, who knows his mission is suicide, and lives in a state of acceptance, and abandonment to life’s fleeting rewards. He is so truly that king of Saturnalia. Have you heard of the “Cherry Blossom Squadrons,” of WW II Japanese kamikaze fame. They were reportedly treated to all things pleasurable in the times between their ominous missions. This is Obama, man of the Talmudic “Cherry Blossom Squadron.” He is tragic, though not heroic, except through the lens of NIHILISM.
    Clearly the intent is to sink the ship of State of the enemy, the Christian American, with his “God Given Rights,” and his “Land of The Free, and Home of The Brave.” Clearly his intent is to unleash race war, division, tumult, chaos, and a national catastrophe of unthinkable depth.
    Thanks for your benevolent guidance in the way of the study of the Orthodox tradition. I think the devil is mad because you guide me to the faith of the Apostles. His night is not the 31st, but more properly the 28th, night of the New Moon closest to the cross quarter day. On this darkest of nights the forces of Hell and Death will be closest to the world of the living, so don’t let your spiritual guard down, thinking its really going down on the observed ‘Halloween.’ I feel him raging against the awareness of the truth of the real church, and of the Saviour. It reflects to me what you said about the cathecumen being thrashed by the devil. But, as in all, God shall prevail. The peace of Christ be with You.

    @ KathJuliane,

    A friendly advice:

    The word Philokalia means in Greek: “the love of good” The Philokalia is a collection and excerpts from the Holy and Desert Fathers who gave guidance and instructions or advise to the monastics only, it is not for the layman to read it, especially for a non-orthodox Christian. For example: in the Philokalia you find the Desert Fathers saying to the monks, “If you see a woman, know that that’s the devil.” What were they refering to here; that women are devils? No! Of course not! Like I said these writings are excerpts and not complete. The monks were reporting to their spiritual fathers that they see the devils appearing in the form of beautifull women in order to tempt them, so that is why the Fathers made the above statement. So you see, for someone with out theological training/spiritual guidance from a priest would not know this.Philokalia is strictly for monastics.

    Peace & Blessings from God.

    To KathJuliane : ~~ I read recently that 666 is actually a mistranslation… in 1895 there was found a collection of ancient (over 1500 yr. old) papyrus in a garbage dump outside the city of Oxyrhynchus, in Egypt. ~~~~ Previously being mostly unreadable – advanced imaging techniques have allowed Oxford scholars to translate the original Greek texts – among which were found the oldest known passages from Revelation (at least 100 years older than any other version). According to them, the number is actually 616. ~~~ Grand Rapids, Michigan – we’re watching you !

    @Russian Orthodox,

    God bless you RO, and blush, don’t make me proud, Lord have mercy on us all. The labors of our dear Brother Nathanael in his God-inspired “holy foolishness” for Christ’s sake in taking the Cross in battle to the American Street is what resonates in my soul. If we have “eyes to see”, then BN is teaching us many things in spiritual warfare, and I humbly hope only to contribute to his just and righteous cause. So, I write what comes to mind, hoping that there is good seed that the Lord can broadcast.

    “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” (1 Cor 1:18). Why is the message of the cross foolishness to unbelievers? St. John Chrysostom answers that “it is a mark of them that perish not to recognize the things which lead to salvation.” We who bear witness to Christ must not be discouraged when those outside of Him mock, for so did once even Paul himself. ~Being saved~, present tense, refers to the process by which the Cross transforms us with the power of God.

    Whatever good comes from me really comes from the Lord through my feeble prayers for the prayers of our Holy Fathers. Orthodoxy is Christian America’s heritage, too, and as an American it is my hope that Protestants and Catholics will each find the living water in this land of very dry spiritual wells in their own way, using Orthodoxy as a prism to shed light and pure colors from “the Father of lights” on what they know and believe in faith.

    Faith through Reason by itself, as Pope Benedict asserts, cannot work. Faith is Belief and Trust in God. Reason may point the way to Faith, but by itself it results in the pagan philosopher’s Logos, and not the living and Divine Logos that St. John the Evangelist and Theologian knew and witnessed in the Person of Jesus the Christ and His Passion. Theology is Divine Revelation from Holy Scripture and Holy Tradition, while philosophy is the rational study of the ontology of things through human reason and may be used for the higher questions of life, but the two cannot and should not be confused.

    Brother Nathanael is our symbolic “mustard seed” to remind us of our own mustard seeds of faith.

    Every sensible, right-believing Christian at least get this straight about the spiritual winds of this age building up towards false ecumenism of the syncretic NWO global Babylonish Synagogue of Satan/NeoGnostic “Church” of Anti-Christ, and we are all pretty jittery and suspicious about it, including the Orthodox. A wary eye is kept on the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, for example and the WCC, but as the Orthodox Church is “collegial” and “concillar” through the office of the Bishop, and not monolithic like the Latin Papacy, the Bishop of Constantinople is subject to his peers and “peer review” among the Bishops of the East. As the Ecumenical Patriarch, his voice is an authoritative OPINION, not an authoritarian BULL. As readers will see from the following list, “peer review” in the College of Bishops is rather robust just in terms of the heads of the commonwealth of local Orthodox Churches in communion with each other. Virtually all listed have distinct “jurisdictions” in the Americas. (**) means the ancient Apostolic Sees of the Byzantine Church Pentarchy besides the Patriarchate of Rome.

    The true path of faith which has always been carefully preserved in the history of the Church, from old was called ~straight~, ~right~, in Greek, ~orthos~–that is “orthodoxy”. In the early Christian literature there is constant mention f the keeping of “the rule of faith, ” the “rule of truth.” The very term “orthodoxy” was widely used even in the epoch before the Ecumenical Synods, then in the terminology of the Ecumenical Synods themselves, and in the Fathers of the Church both of the East and of the West.

    The Roman Catholic Church kept the name, but the Orthodox Church has kept the teaching. We are the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, but to avoid confusion we long ago assumed also the name “Orthodox Church”.

    The best description of the Orthodox perspective of “ecumenical activity” comes from Archbishop Iakovos, Greek Archbishop of North and South America for thirty five years, who retired in 1996, and was an active leader in the ecumenical discourses between the Lutheran West and Orthodoxy in the twentieth century. Writing in the late 1950’s in a Lutheran journal on the topic of ecumenical dialogue, he first defines his concept of Orthodoxy as: “…the Christian Church’s doctrine, order, worship and tradition of the first eight centuries of united Christendom…” then discusses what he believes to be the scope of Orthodoxy’s contribution to any ecumenical dialogue:

    “The common use of the term “Orthodox” to signify the church of the East should signify to the churches of the West that the Eastern Church is committed to maintain the genuine characteristics of the one true Church of Christ. Orthodoxy, being true to her history and traditions and compelled by the consciousness of her God-ordained task, is present and intends to be present and participate actively in all ecumenical conversations as long as their aim is to restore the disrupted unity of Christendom. Orthodoxy’s principal aim in participating in the ecumenical movement is to make known the riches of her faith, worship and order, and of her spiritual and ascetic life and experience.”
    –Archbishop Iakovos, “The Contribution of Eastern Orthodoxy to the Ecumenical Movement” Lutheran World September 1959, Vol VI No. 2 p. 140.

    Following the Russian involvement in the WCC, they are adhering to strict Orthodoxy in the sense that Archbishop Iakovos so admirably stated it, and present themselves more as teachers of patristic doctrine available to the rest of Christendom. There are things the Orthodox clergy refrain from any involvement at all in terns of “liberal dialog”, and were instrumental in actually changing syncretic faith liturgies during agenda sessions by quietly raising objections. Now the inter-faith conferences are such that each faith individually conducts a liturgy according to particular rite, and then others are free to join or refrain as listed on the agenda. It was pleasing to read that WCC actually wrote language like “due to Orthodox sensibilities, the WCC will be changing…”

    For readers not familiar with the basic structure of the Orthodox Church, there are four “Royal Orders” in Church government that are bound by Holy Scripture itself: the Laity, the Deacons, the Presbyters (Priests), and the Bishops (overseers). Authority is resident in all four orders, with the individual bishop providing the center of unity for diocese flock. His authority is not over the Church, but within her. Each bishop is a living icon of Jesus Christ, “the Shepherd and Overseer [lit “Bishop”] of your souls” (1 Pet. 2:25). Church leadership is not one or more of the orders functioning without the others. Rather the Church, with Christ as Head, is conducted like a symphony orchestra, a family, the body of Christ, the household of the Lord, where all the members of their given offices work together as the dwelling place of the Holy Trinity.

    The Orthodox find it somewhat inconceivable to have a church that is run by just one of the four orders, as we believe all must present for the Church to function. If the ecclesiastical hierarcy are “the Teachers of the Faith”, it is the Laity that is “the Defender of the Faith” and gives rise to the ordained orders.

    If anyone wants some Scriptural citations for the “Four Royal Orders”, I’ll be happy to post them.

    Essentially this means that while the Orthodox Church requires obedient sheep, she also requires intelligent sheep. As it is understood that the Holy Spirit is active throught the entire Church of “four orders”, the Laity have the reservation and voice to question and challenge the ecclesiastical hierarchy on important issues, beginning with our own particular bishop, and includes ordination of the clergy.

    The most interesting sheep in the world to me are the “Barbados sheep”. They are named “Barbados” because having a goatish digestion, they were early imported to the Barbados islands to eat the sugar cane stubble. Here in California they are sometimes used for pasture maintenance and rural landscaping, as they will eat poison oak and the “pest plant” star thistle if it is young enough. They keep together as a sheep flock, but they are plucky and smart enough to butt a dog out of the yard if one gets in.

    I like it. Sheep with an attitude.

    Air Talmud is grounded today. I’m still working out a theory for Michael K. God bless all.

    [The Military is calling it “dwell-time” in the Homeland. Let me get this straight. Federalized state National Guard units are sent out to wage war in Afghanistan, Iraq and probably Iran, who are supposed to deal with internal state domestic crises; while a battalion of the regular Federal Army is rotated back to the US for “dwell-time” and used in the National Guard’s place. What happened to the Posse Comitatus Act when no one was looking?]
    Brigade homeland tours start Oct. 1

    3rd Infantry’s 1st BCT trains for a new dwell-time mission. Helping ‘people at home’ may become a permanent part of the active Army
    By Gina Cavallaro – Staff writer
    Posted : Tuesday Sep 30, 2008 16:16:12 EDT

    The 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team has spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle, helping restore essential services and escorting supply convoys.

    Now they’re training for the same mission — with a twist — at home.

    Beginning Oct. 1 for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks.

    It is not the first time an active-duty unit has been tapped to help at home. In August 2005, for example, when Hurricane Katrina unleashed hell in Mississippi and Louisiana, several active-duty units were pulled from various posts and mobilized to those areas.

    But this new mission marks the first time an active unit has been given a dedicated assignment to NorthCom, a joint command established in 2002 to provide command and control for federal homeland defense efforts and coordinate defense support of civil authorities.

    After 1st BCT finishes its dwell-time mission, expectations are that another, as yet unnamed, active-duty brigade will take over and that the mission will be a permanent one.

    “Right now, the response force requirement will be an enduring mission. How the [Defense Department] chooses to source that and whether or not they continue to assign them to NorthCom, that could change in the future,” said Army Col. Louis Vogler, chief of NorthCom future operations. “Now, the plan is to assign a force every year.”

    The command is at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado

    In the meantime, they’ll learn new skills, use some of the ones they acquired in the war zone and more than likely will not be shot at while doing any of it.

    They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.

    Training for homeland scenarios has already begun at Fort Stewart and includes specialty tasks such as knowing how to use the “jaws of life” to extract a person from a mangled vehicle; extra medical training for a CBRNE incident; and working with U.S. Forestry Service experts on how to go in with chainsaws and cut and clear trees to clear a road or area.

    The 1st BCT’s soldiers also will learn how to use “the first ever nonlethal package that the Army has fielded,” 1st BCT commander Col. Roger Cloutier said, referring to crowd and traffic control equipment and nonlethal weapons designed to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals without killing them.

    The package is for use only in war-zone operations, not for any domestic purpose.

    Why is a U.S. Army brigade being assigned to the “Homeland”?

    [And how the Posse Comitatus Act was stealth bombed by Congress, the President, and who knows who else.]

    For more than 100 years — since the end of the Civil War — deployment of the U.S. military inside the U.S. has been prohibited under The Posse Comitatus Act (the only exceptions being that the National Guard and Coast Guard are exempted, and use of the military on an emergency ad hoc basis is permitted, such as what happened after Hurricane Katrina). Though there have been some erosions of this prohibition over the last several decades (most perniciously to allow the use of the military to work with law enforcement agencies in the “War on Drugs”), the bright line ban on using the U.S. military as a standing law enforcement force inside the U.S. has been more or less honored — until now. And as the Army Times notes, once this particular brigade completes its one-year assignment, “expectations are that another, as yet unnamed, active-duty brigade will take over and that the mission will be a permanent one.” [Go to link for rest of story.]
