Denmark could face attack if joins NATO shield: Russian

Copenhagen (AFP) - Russia's ambassador to Denmark said Saturday that the NATO country's navy could be targeted
by nuclear missiles if it joins the Western alliance's anti-missile shield.
The threat made by Ambassador Mikhail Vanin in an opinion piece he wrote for the Danish daily Jyllands-Posten
sparked an angry reaction and came amid an increasingly Cold War-style standoff between Moscow and the West.
"I do not think that the Danes fully understand the consequences of what happens if Denmark joins the US-led missile
defence," Ambassador Mikhail Vanin wrote in the daily.
"If this happens Danish warships become targets for Russian nuclear missiles."
Russia has long opposed NATO's missile shield -- launched in 2010 and due to be fully operational by 2025 -- in
which member countries contribute radar and weaponry to protect Europe against missile attacks.
Denmark has pledged to supply one or more frigates equipped with advanced radar to track incoming missiles.
The chairwoman of the Danish parliament's foreign affairs, Mette Gjerskov told AFP that the comments were "very
threatening and not necessary" as the missile shield was simply an "intruder alarm" and no danger to Russia.
"This is a way of escalating the verbal tone between Russia and NATO," she said, adding that the comments were also
aimed at Russian public opinion.
"But it doesn't change the fact that we're not afraid."
Denmark's Foreign Minister Martin Lidegaard said the remarks were "unacceptable rhetoric" and "completely out of
"One should not threaten such serious things as the ambassador has done here," he told news agency Ritzau.
Tensions between Russia and the Nordic countries have risen in recent years with reports of increased Russian airforce
incursions in the Baltic region.
Holger K. Nielsen, defence spokesman for the Socialist People's Party, which is opposed to Denmark's involvement in
the NATO shield, called the ambassador's comments "crazy".
"His opinion is based on the assumption that a war has broken out and in that case Denmark, as a member of NATO,
would already be a target," he told Jyllands-Posten.
NATO's European missile defence system is headquartered in Ramstein Germany since 2012.
It includes US missile destroying warships in Spain, Patriot anti-missile systems in Turkey, ship borne radar systems
carried by several member countries and planned missile interceptors in Romania.

Translated from Russian by J.Hawk
All Airborne Forces formations have
established rapid reaction units capable
of deploying within 24 hours. “The can be
used to perform missions both on the
territory of the Russian Federation as
well as outside its borders,” noted Airborne Forces commander General Vladimir Shamanov.
“Due to this initiative, we have sharply increased the intake at the Ryazan Airborne Forces Academy. Last year we
accepted 540 applicants for the higher professional development course, and 570 for the middle professional
education course. The first lasts five years, the second 2 years and 10 months,” the general said.
J.Hawk’s Comment: Since these days the basic building block of the Russian Army, including the Airborne Forces, is
the brigade/regiment, this would imply each brigade or regiment places one of its battalions on high alert, deployable
anywhere within 24 hours. Obviously this is not a new measure, since Shamanov is referring to officer (the 5-year
course) and sergeant (2-year course) training regimens that were already adopted last year. But it is notable
Shamanov felt obligated to make the Airborne Forces’ ability to respond rapidly to crises right now.
In other possibly related news, the 33 Guards Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade has changed its permanent garrison
from Dagestan to the Rostov Region—which just happens to border the Donbass. These moves, along with the 15 th
Gds MR Bde “peacekeeping forces” trolling and other very recent military moves, suggest the Russian government is
preparing for all possibilities or…it already knows what’s coming. Given the current state of the UAF, I very much
doubt anything its generals or their civilian leadership conceives stays a secret for very long.

In the wake of Crimea's independence referendum, Hillary Clinton says Russian President Putin is a "new
Hitler." Zbigniew Brezezinski, former National Security Advisor agrees, calling Putin not just another Hitler,
but also a thug, a menace, a Mafia gangster, and a Mussolini. The Western mainstream media echoes this
childish name-calling.
Why is the whole Western foreign policy establishment so afraid of Putin?
Because Putin is standing up against Western aggression – not only in Ukraine, but also in Syria and Iran. Ongoing
Western attempts to destabilize these and other countries are just the most recent examples of a decades-old pattern
of aggression. The long-term goal: Total destruction of traditional nations and values, and the creation of a New World
Order global dictatorship.
Since the 1953 CIA-MI6 coup in Iran, the West has been using the same formula to overthrow legitimate but
uncooperative leaders: First, sabotage the country's economy. Then bribe corrupt military officers and thugs and pay
rent-a-mobs to create chaos in the streets. Next (this step is optional) incite violence by paying snipers to fire into
crowds – and maybe set off some bombs. Finally, send the corrupt military units and gangsters to overthrow the target
nation's legitimate leader, murder or imprison his supporters, install a Western puppet in his place – and announce
that "order has been restored."
The CIA did it to Iran's democratically-elected Prime Minister Mossadegh in 1953, to Indonesia's President Sukarno in
1965, and to Chile's Prime Minister Allende on September 11th, 1973. They did the same thing to Ukraine's legitimate
president, Viktor Yanukovych, a few weeks ago. Neocon regime-change apparatchik Victoria Nuland (The assistant
US secretary of state,) got caught admitting that the US had spent five billion dollars to overthrow Ukraine's
democratically-elected government; and EU Foreign Affairs Chief Catherine Ashton was heard on tape discussing the
"news" that the Maidan Square snipers were part of the US-sponsored coup.
The people of Ukraine should be worried. US-sponsored coups can turn very bloody very quickly.
The CIA's 1965 Indonesia coup was one of the biggest holocausts in history. According to Princeton history professor
Bradley Simpson, as cited by the Jakarta Globe: "The US and British governments did everything in their power to
ensure that the Indonesian army would carry out the mass killings" of more than one million people following the coup
against Sukarno. Most of the victims were tortured before they were murdered. The list of names of people to be
tortured and murdered was provided by the CIA to their hired Indonesian thugs. While this was going on, five-year-old
Barrack Obama was living in Indonesia with his stepfather Lolo Soetoro, who was working for the American mass
That's right: Obama's stepfather was a holocaust perpetrator.
In 1971, following the CIA's coup in Chile, the American stooge Pinochet murdered 3,000 people and tortured 30,000.
These actions were fully supported by Pinochet's American sponsors, who trained and paid the thugs and torturers.
The hecatomb in Syria, too, is best understood as yet another US-sponsored coup attempt.
The NWO-driven Americans and their Western allies have killed tens of millions in these coups, interventions,
destabilization campaigns, and undeclared wars. According to André Vltchek and Noam Chomsky's book On Western
Terrorism, the total number killed is over 50 million since World War II. If we add to this the number of people tortured,
brutalized, falsely imprisoned, forced to become refugees, or who had their lives ruined by Western terrorism, the
number of victims reaches the hundreds of millions.
Today, the American terrorists and their NATO allies seem less interested in installing puppet governments than in
reducing entire nations to chaos. The CIA-NATO coup against Gaddafi has destroyed Libya as a modern nationstate. Western-backed false-flag terror in Iraq is splitting up that country. Syria is being decimated by a Westernbacked attempt to overthrow Assad. Venezuela, too, is being destabilized by a CIA-backed coup effort.
In short, the New World Order – a shadowy group of global banking oligarchs bent on establishing a one-world
dictatorship – is trying to overthrow every leader on earth who resists. Russian President Putin is resisting. That is
why the Western propaganda machine is calling him names.
It is worth noting that Russia and Iran – the two nations most successfully resisting NWO regime change – are doing
so in the name of God.
According to Catholic intellectual E. Michael Jones, the 1979 Iranian Revolution was the opening salvo of a global
backlash against secularism's destruction of traditional values. Like the 1980 election of Ronald Reagan (driven by
Americans' disgust with the so-called sexual revolution) and the rise of Poland's Solidarity movement (which opposed
communist atheism), the establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran was a landmark event signaling an end to the
20th-century wave of militant secularism and atheism – and a revival of traditional religion.
President Putin enjoys overwhelming popularity in Russia due to his defense of traditional religious values. In his
State of the Nation address last December, Putin said: "Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their
roots, including Christian values… Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a
same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan."
Putin's reference to Satanism was a pointed rebuke to the New World Order elites, who – though they push militant
secularism on the societies they are trying to undermine – are closet Satanists. Anyone who doubts this should run
the name "Lt. Col. Michael Aquino" through a search engine. Aquino, an avowed Satanist and credibly-accused mass
child abuser, was rewarded for his crimes against children with an appointment as Chief of Psychological Warfare for
the US military. (For background on the satanic international banking elite, and its near-total control of Western
institutions, read Nick Bryant's book The Franklin Scandal alongside the work of Canadian scholar Henry Makow.)
The shock troops of the NWO's war against religion and tradition (and Russia and Iran) are the neoconservatives.
Operation Gladio terrorist Michael Ledeen explains: "Creative destruction is our middle name, both within our society
and abroad. We tear down the old order every day, from business to science, literature, art, architecture, and cinema
to politics and the law. Our enemies have always hated this whirlwind of energy and creativity which menaces their
traditions (whatever they may be) and shames them for their inability to keep pace ... We must destroy them to
advance our historic mission."
Putin is stopping New World Order "creative destruction" in Syria and Ukraine. He is part of a growing coalition
opposing the NWO – not just religious traditionalists, but also progressive anti-globalization forces, including Hugo
Chavez inspired anti-imperialists in Latin America.
We are facing an epic struggle between those who espouse sacred values such as justice and decency versus those
who wish to destroy all values.
God bless President Putin, who is putting the fear of God into the New World Order.
Infowars » NATO Declares Information War On Russia » Print

The Supreme Commander of NATO, Gen. Philip Breedlove, said on Sunday the West must
engage in an information war with Russia in order to counteract its "false narratives" on
social media.
“We need as a western group of nations or as an alliance to engage in this informational warfare. The way to attack
the false narrative is to drag the false narrative into the light and expose it,” Breedlove said.
In July, NATO announced a concerted effort to counter the Russian narrative on Ukraine. According to UK
ambassador Adam Thomson, the response includes “military steps.”
“Nato needs to be able to pop the Russian myths that are propagated about Nato itself… it needs to be able to look
after its own equity in this, if you like,” Thomson said during a NATO summit in September.
In July Latvia, Estonia, Germany, Italy Lithuania, Poland, and the UK signed a memorandum agreeing upon the
establishment of a StratCom Centre of Excellence in Riga, Latvia.
StratCom is short for the United States Strategic Command. It is the combat command run by the Pentagon
responsible for information warfare and other operations.
“The conflict between Russia and Ukraine clearly shows how important an information campaign can be in gaining
the upper hand in a military conflict. Strategic communication is also becoming increasingly important in the context
of NATO-led operations,” said said Latvian Minister of Defense Raimonds Vejonis during a visit to Norfolk, Virginia.
State Department Runs Social Media War Against Russia
The U.S. State Department is currently engaged in a social media propaganda war against Russia. For instance, on
Twitter, the U.S. has established the Russian language UkrProgress account and claims 14,000 people follow it,
most from the Russian Federation.
In June, Marie Harf, the deputy spokesperson for the State Department, tweeted about UkrProgress:
The mission of UkrProgress is to counter what the United States considers Russian propaganda on the conflict in
“This account has criticized Russia's actions in a much freer style than the official statements” issued by the U.S.
State Department, writes the Russia & India Report. “For example, the photos of so-called ‘American mercenaries’ in
Ukraine published by the Russian media have been labelled by UkrProgress as ‘a cheap trick by the Kremlin’.
UkrProgress often retweets American diplomats and embassies around the world, including the U.S. embassy
account in Moscow (which has 23,000 subscribers).”
There are a number of videos “on YouTube on Ukrainian-Russian subjects, filmed by order of the State Department,”
the website continues.
Unmentioned by Breedlove is the fact the United States or its proxies in Ukraine have initiated DDOS (denial of
service) cyber-attacks against the Russian Foreign Ministry website and social media channels. These attacks are in
response to the growing popularity of Russia’s Twitter and Facebook accounts.
The German and Ukrainian government accuses Russia of similar behavior. In January the Ukrainian CyberBerkut
hacker group claimed responsibility for a series of DDoS attacks that took down German government websites after
the announcement of a meeting between German chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian prime minister Arseny
CyberBerkut specializes in attacks on NATO websites and U.S. private military companies.
Russia Rebounds, Despite Sanctions
This article originally appeared at Bloomberg View
Sanctions meant to punish Russia for snatching Crimea from Ukraine one year ago were supposed to hurt Russian
business. And they did. Russian stocks, bonds and commodities had the worst performance in 2014 of those in any
emerging market.
That was then. Now the picture is changing, with investors starting to favor Russia in 2015. The ruble, which became
the world's most volatile currency last year after President Vladimir Putin's land grab, is stabilizing. The swings in its
value narrowed this year more than any of the other 30 most-traded currencies.
Investors in Russian government securities denominated in rubles have earned the equivalent of 7 cents on the dollar
so far this year, as measured by the Bloomberg Russia Local Sovereign Bond Index. In contrast, anyone holding
similar government debt in emerging markets across-the-board has lost 1.1 percent in 2015.
The picture is even rosier for Russia's corporate bondholders; they've had a 7.3 percent total return in 2015, leading
the gains in the index for emerging market corporate bonds compiled by Bloomberg. And while shareholders in the
global emerging market stocks measured by the MSCI Emerging Market Index gained 1.7 percent this year, the 50
Russian stocks in the Micex index are up 11.9 percent -- better than the Standard & Poor's 500 or any other North
American market.
The ruble's relative value helps explain why there are some signs of confidence in Russia. Although the ruble remains
the most volatile of the 31 most-traded currencies this year, its swings are narrowing. This is visible in implied
volatility, a measure of traders' bets on how much the currency's value will change day-to-day. After surging in late
2014 amid the widening Ukraine crisis, the ruble now is fluctuating the way it did in 2009.
Business also appears to be on the rebound. Some 78 percent of the Russian companies in the Micex index showed
greater annual sales growth than their global peers, even though the shares of these Russian companies lagged
behind their international competitors, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That's consistent with a two-year
improvement in the relative value of Russian companies.
One possible reason for the growth? Sanctions. With foreign goods unavailable, Russians had to choose homegrown
products and services.
For all the disruption caused by the sanctions, Russian companies represented in the Micex index are more profitable
measured by Ebitda margins (earnings before taxes, depreciation and amortization) than the rest of the companies
included in the global MSCI Emerging Market Index.
A number of Russian companies are outperforming their global peers. Magnit PJSC, which operates a chain of
discount supermarkets with a market capitalization of $16 billion, is one worth noting. The retailer's one-year revenue
growth was 31.66 percent, overwhelming the 0.87 percent increase in sales from its global competitors. Novatek
OAO, a $22.8 billion independent producer of natural gas in western Siberia, is another. The company saw its sales
increase 19.5 percent, compared with 0.76 percent from its global sector. And then there's Rosneft, a $41 billion
international brand with production in western Siberia, Sakhalin, the North Caucasus and the Arctic, which reported
an 18.26 percent annual sales growth when its international competitors disclosed a revenue increase of just 0.76
percent. By any conventional measure, the shares of these companies are cheap.
Are global investors optimistic about corporate Russia's continued resilience? It seems so. The shares outstanding of
the largest U.S.-based exchange traded fund tracking Russian companies -- more than 90 percent of the companies
in the ETF are Russian -- surged 5 percent so far this year. At the same time, an ETF that's a proxy for money flows
into and out of Russian equity shows a 27 percent increase. Putin's Ukraine adventure has led to instability in the
region and frayed relations with the West; what it hasn't destroyed is confidence in corporate Russia.
Young Russian immigrant starts a one-woman crusade to WAKE
UP America
A young immigrant whose family had lived a subjugated life under communism is taking action and urging fellow
Americans to wake up.
Rita Makrusina and her parents immigrated to the U.S. when Rita was 11-years-old.
“We did it 100 percent legally,” she told The College Fix.
Rita’s family had little money, and the spare earnings her parents did muster while living in Russia were spent on
English lessons for their daughter. Her family knew a much better life awaited them within the wide wings of freedom
that existed in America.
When the opportunity to come to the U.S. finally arrived they
needed to borrow money from a friend to pay for the citizenship
“To us at the time, $2,000 was like $2 million. We did not have it
all. We borrowed from a friend,” Rita said.
The small family moved into a hotel and her parents got busy
starting their own businesses. As for Rita, she worked diligently
at school and eventually earned a full scholarship to the
University of Southern California.
Facebook photo of Rita and her dad.
“I am very grateful to this country to get a higher education,”
Rita said. “I believe I am the perfect example of the American Dream.”
No doubt, it will likely be a lonely road for this young Californian who lives in a sea of liberalism – but every noble
cause must begin somewhere.
Rita said she’s seeing the American Dream fleeting fast under the Obama administration. She believes that America
is starting to resemble the communist country that is all too uncomfortably familiar to her family.
“He is implementing programs that scream ‘big government, big government, let me help the masses, everybody
should have this, everybody should do this, everybody needs to be this,’” Rita said.
“Excuse me. This is not a dictatorship, this is a democracy.”
Rita has decided to take her fight to the steps of the White House on March 31, where she’d like to host a peaceful
She is trying to garner attention with a petition that not only urges her peers to vote in the next presidential election,
but to wake them up to the fact that their freedoms are being eroded away every day.
Citizens of the United States,
In December of 2014, our National Debt passed the $18 trillion dollar mark. Class Warfare has been
ignited between American citizens across the country. ISIS is slaughtering men, women and children
without loosing any sleep over it. There is poverty and addiction on the streets. The President has not
taken initiative to create positive policy.
America once worked, and it will work again. I believe if we come together and remind Barack Obama
that family, safety, faith, health, and service are very important to the people of the United States of
America, we will succeed…
Rita posted her petition to her Facebook page and admitted she has a ways to go in terms of support for her “wake
up” event. Although according to The College Fix, she remains steadfast and unfazed.
Rita mentioned the family friend who had given them the money to come to America, has since passed away.
But not before Rita’s family fulfilled his one-and-only request in exchange for his generous contribution – he joined
them for a barbeque in the family’s American backyard, with the “white picket fence” and everything.
Greece to play the Russian card?
Opinion: Greece ready to play the Russian card
EU intransigence may force Tsipras to seek aid from Putin
By Darrell Delamaide
Reuters Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras
20 March, 2015
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Greece is ready to play the Russian card, bringing a new geostrategic dimension to
the euro crisis.
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras moved up his planned visit to talk to Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow
to early next month instead of in May.
Faced with intransigence by the European Union and its other creditors in rolling back austerity and alleviating its
debt burden, the Greek government is quietly dangling the prospect of turning to Russia for aid.
The Greek economy may represent an insignificant portion of the EU’s overall gross domestic product, but its location
at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and the Middle East continues to be of considerable geostrategic importance.
Those who like to think that Putin is on the ropes and that Russia has enough problems of its own to spare
any thought for poor little Greece are underestimating the un-blinkered strategic vision of the Russian
This is why the U.S. worked so hard in the postwar period to keep Greece from drifting into the Soviet camp and has
supported Greece as a linchpin of NATO.
Many already blame EU ham-handedness for sparking the crisis in Ukraine by insisting that Kiev make an either-or
choice between Brussels and Moscow.
Now, with its blinkered focus on its arbitrary euro parameters, the EU appears willing to not only eject Greece from
the euro EURUSD, +1.50% — with unpredictable consequences — but also to undo 70 years of effort to keep the
country firmly in the Western camp.
Tsipras continues to defy the bullying by Brussels authorities, as Greek officials stonewalled a teleconference this
week to discuss “technical” details of the country’s compliance with EU terms of a bailout pending a chance to reach
a political solution.
Greek leaders are trying to take the crisis out of the narrow realm of contractual law regarding debt and deal with it in
the context of European solidarity and the very real humanitarian crisis that exists in Greece.
Tsipras is to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President François Hollande, as well as the
heads of the European Central Bank and the European Commission, on the sidelines of this week’s EU summit to
plead his case.
He is also going to Berlin next week to consult again with Merkel and other German officials. He still seems to hold
out some hope of being able to budge them from their piggybank view of economics to a set of policies that can put
Greece back on the road to growth.
Merkel, however, wasted no time dashing these hopes, telling the German Parliament on Thursday that “no one can
expect a solution to Greece’s problems this evening or Monday evening.”
Which brings us back to the Greek leader’s visit to Moscow on April 8.
Syriza leaders are not shy about reminding people that Tsipras and other members of his Coalition of the Radical Left
have their political roots in Marxism and the Greek Communist Party. Moreover, there are strong ties and sympathy
between Russia and Greece because of their bond through the Orthodox Church.
The U.S. finally had to step in to take a leadership role in quelling the violence in the former Yugoslav republics and
may yet have to take a direct role in getting Europe to come to its senses with regard to Greece.
With NATO on high alert regarding the Baltic states and Poland after Russia’s incursion into Ukraine, there has to be
growing concern in Washington about Moscow extending its influence on Europe’s southeastern flank.
In fact, Victoria Nuland, assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, was in Athens earlier this week
as part of a swing through this very region. A widely circulated photo of her having a relaxed chat with Tsipras is no
doubt intended to impress Brussels and Berlin with the attention being paid by Washington.
Preoccupied as it is with Ukraine and the nuclear deal with Iran, the U.S. is not likely to intervene directly, but rather
continue to apply pressure on the Europeans to resolve this issue in a way that does not expose the continent to
economic or political instability.
There is little reason for optimism, however, given the EU track record in political myopia.
In Ukraine, as earlier during the messy breakup of Yugoslavia, European leaders seemed oblivious to the realities of
geopolitics as they pursued their own narrow national interests and responded to the not-in-my-backyard pressures
of their domestic voters.
The U.S. finally had to step in to take a leadership role in quelling the violence in the former Yugoslav republics and
may yet have to take a direct role in getting Europe to come to its senses with regard to Greece.
Berlin has tried to cow the Greeks by playing as if it holds all the aces. It turns out, however, that Tsipras has an ace
in the hole and may be ready to use it.
De-Dollarization Accelerates as Switzerland Quietly Wields a Big
Bank Stick by Joining the Chinese Founded AIIB
by John Galt
March 21, 2015 08:45 ET
The statement from the Swiss Federal Council on Friday was crystal clear and a shot across the bow of the US
administration (and probably Federal Reserve also) efforts to blunt the creation and expansion of a non-US controlled
Asian banking entity to counter the American financial control of the IMF and World Bank:
Switzerland to participate in foundation process of Asian Infrastructure Investment
Bern, 20.03.2015 – The Federal Council has decided that Switzerland will
participate in the foundation process of Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank
(AIIB), which is to promote sustainable economic development in Asia.
Switzerland is one of the first countries in western Europe to take this step. It can
thus be involved in the preparation of this important new financial institution’s
articles of agreement. Moreover, it will enable Switzerland to be well positioned in
the new institution from the outset. Finally, this move will help to strengthen
relations with China and with Asia in general.
The purpose of AIIB is to promote sustainable economic development in Asia, concentrating
on the region’s poorer countries. The focus is on providing financing for energy, transport and
telecommunications infrastructure, urban and rural development and the environment. The
bank will have an authorized capital of USD 100 billion. It will provide support by granting
loans, investing in equity or providing guarantees. The new institution will work closely
together with the existing multilateral development banks and complement their activities.
The bank has the potential to become an important new part of the international financial
architecture and play a major role in the financing of urgently needed infrastructure in Asia.
The bank’s foundation was first proposed by China. Currently, a total of 27 signatory countries,
particularly from the region, have declared their intention to establish the bank. Moreover,
several other western European countries have announced that they will participate. In order
to be able to participate in the preparatory process that is under way, Switzerland submitted
the necessary letter of intent already last week, making it the third country in western Europe
to take this step.
Subject to approval by the existing signatories, Switzerland will become a prospective
founding member of the AIIB. Participation in the foundation process will give it a unique
opportunity to work on this new institution’s articles of agreement and to position itself well.
Switzerland believes that it can play a significant role in ensuring that the new bank complies
with the international standards in terms of its operating activities and development
cooperation. The country’s many years of experience and its credibility in multilateral
development banks will benefit it in this regard.
The AIIB’s articles of agreement should be adopted this year. Only after they have been
approved will Switzerland decide on definitive membership of the bank. Before then, it will also
have to decide the extent of its financial participation. A parliamentary decision is required for
joining an international organisation.
While this might not seem alarming to the average person, Business Insider/Reuters had an article yesterday
highlighting the US concerns and efforts to block our “allies” from joining in this new Chinese banking system:
Japan and Australia are ignoring warnings from the US not to join China’s new bank
The map of founding members not including Switzerland reads like a who’s who of the world financial system looking
to have an alternative to the US dominance via the Federal Reserve and the dollar:
With Switzerland joining the AIIB initiative, one has to wonder if there is a growing concern about our financial system
impacting the rest of the world in a disproportionate fashion. The Swiss Franc has stood as a stable currency versus
the current world reserve currency structure and there is growing concern that the United States will abuse this
privilege by attempting to drag the rest of the world economy down with it, as our national debt explodes and
corruption continues to be exported via our financial sector. Should the United States create another financial crisis, it
would appear that Asia, Europe, and the Middle East have decided not to go down with our ship this time.
Day Golfing, Watching B-Ball
Posted by Kristinn Taylor on Saturday, March 21, 2015, 2:15 PM
The foreign policy of President Barack Obama took a devastating blow on Saturday as news broke of
the last U.S. troops fleeing Yemen as the terrorist group Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula
attacked the city of al-Houta near their base.
The BBC reported the troops were training the Yemen military to fight AQAP at al-Anad air base
While US troops were humiliated yet again under Obama, their commander-in-chief was goofing off.
Obama attended a NCAA women’s basketball tournament game at College Park, Maryland Saturday
where his niece Leslie Robinson was serving as a benchwarmer for Princeton.
Before Obama headed out for the game, the news media broke reported on the evacuation of about
100 U.S. troops, including Special Forces, from Yemen.
Following the game, Obama went directly to Joint Base Andrews to play golf.
The actor Charlie Sheen ripped Obama this week for putting his obsession with the NCAA
basketball tournament ahead of looking out for the country.
The U.S. Embassy in Yemen was abandoned last month as the Yemeni government collapsed in a
civil war. U.S. Marines were ordered to disarm themselves and destroy their weapons before
leaving the country, a decision that sparked outrage.
The evacuation of the U.S. troops took place on Friday, but the U.S. and international media
completely missed on reporting it.
Apparently the Obama administration did not make an announcement, but a Yemeni on Twitter,
Haykal Bafana, posted about it on Friday.
“Al Anad airbase, evacuated en masse by US soldiers earlier today, is barely 20km NW of Al Houta.
AQAP just chased the US out of #Yemen.”
While Obama Watches Basketball, Pentagon Loses Track Of $500
Million In Weapons, Aircraft And Equipment Given To Yemen
And we had to pull out our special forces in inglorious retreat. All our weapons and equipment, next stop, al-Qaeda…
Via WaPo:
The Pentagon is unable to account for more than $500 million in U.S. military aid given to Yemen,
amid fears that the weaponry, aircraft and equipment is at risk of being seized by Iranian-backed
rebels or al-Qaeda, according to U.S. officials.
With Yemen in turmoil and its government splintering, the Defense Department has lost its ability to
monitor the whereabouts of small arms, ammunition, night-vision goggles, patrol boats, vehicles and
other supplies donated by the United States. The situation has grown worse since the United States
closed its embassy in Sanaa, the capital, last month and withdrew many of its military advisers.
In recent weeks, members of Congress have held closed-door meetings with U.S. military officials to
press for an accounting of the arms and equipment. Pentagon officials have said that they have little
information to go on and that there is little they can do at this point to prevent the weapons and gear
from falling into the wrong hands.
“We have to assume it’s completely compromised and gone,” said a legislative aide on Capitol Hill who
spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.
BOOM: Egypt Sentences Obama’s Right Hand Man to Death
Well this calls for a round of golf!
(Conservative Tribune) Egypt’s President, Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, continues to make massive progress in the fight
against radical Islamic terrorism. Now news has broken that he has sentenced twenty-one members of the Muslim
Brotherhood to death.
Among the group of members who were sentenced to death is Mohamed Badie, chief of the Muslim Brotherhood. All
twenty-one sentenced, including the chief, will die by hanging, according to reports.
They were found guilty on multiple charges, including the organization of an “operations room,” which served as a
headquarters to plan violent terrorist attacks against el-Sissi’s government and spread chaos around the country.
The group of MB terrorists were also found guilty of planning attacks on police stations, churches and other types of
private property.
Some of the other men involved in the sentencing were high-level MB operatives and leaders, including Mahmoud
Ghozlan, Saad El-Hossainy, Salah Soltan and Fathy Shehab.
It’s too bad for them that they weren’t sentenced in the United States, as President Barack Obama would probably
have sent them on a nice little vacation to a minimum security federal prison before releasing them back to their
home country shortly thereafter.
While Egypt’s president continues to slay the bad guys, Obama continues to hire them into his administration.
There are multiple examples of this, including Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy
development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; and Rashad Hussain, the
U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, to name but a few (H/T Freedom Outpost).
El-Sissi has sentenced hundreds of MB members to death over the past year and a half, making a real dent in
the war on Islamic radicals .
Meanwhile, Obama has played some really good golf courses.
We salute President el-Sissi for his no-nonsense method of dealing with dangerous terrorists. Perhaps he’ll consider
advising the Obama administration on basic leadership principles.

Marine Corps Urges 'Vigilance' After ISIS Online Threat
The US Marine Corps on Sunday urged "vigilance" among staff after the Islamic State group published the alleged
names and addresses of 100 military personnel and urged supporters to kill them.
"Vigilance and force protection considerations remain a priority for commanders and their personnel," US Marine
Corps Lieutenant Colonel John Caldwell said in a statement.
"It is recommended Marines and family members check their online/social footprint, ensuring privacy settings are
adjusted to limit the amount of available personal information."
The warning came after a group calling itself the Islamic State Hacking Division put the allegedly hacked information
about members of the air force, army and navy, included photos and ranks, on the Internet, according to monitoring
group SITE Intelligence.
The hacking group said it took the information from government servers, databases and emails and called on its
followers to mount attacks.
A defense source, however, told The New York Times most of the information was in fact available in public records
and did not appear to have been hacked from government servers.
"With the huge amount of data we have from various different servers and databases, we have decided to leak 100
addresses so that our brothers residing in America can deal with you," the group wrote.
"Now we have made it easy for you by giving you addresses, all you need to do is take the final step, so what are you
waiting for?"
The self-proclaimed hackers said the 100 military staff had targeted the Islamic State group in Iraq,
Syria and Yemen.
A Defense Department official told AFP they were looking into the posting.
"I can't confirm the validity of the information, but we are looking into it," the official said.
The United States is leading an international coalition targeting the Islamic State group (ISIS) in Iraq and Syria, where
the Islamist militants have taken over swaths of territory.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for hacking attacks in the United States in the past, including against Central
Command, which oversees the air war against the ISIS group.
In January, the hacked Centcom Twitter feed posted what appeared to be an office phone directory of officers that
was slightly out of date, forcing the military to take down the command's Twitter feed for a period.
The words "CyberCaliphate" and "I love you ISIS" replaced Central Command's usual logo on Twitter and YouTube
before the pages were suspended.
This month, the FBI said it was investigating a string of hacks that defaced US websites with imagery from the Islamic
State jihadist group.
Websites including a racecar speedway in the state of Ohio, a Goodwill center in Missouri and a church in Canada
were defaced with the radical group's black flag.
Attacks against similar low-profile websites were also recorded in Montana, New York, Massachusetts and Minnesota.
The Islamic state group has relied on an aggressive propaganda campaign online to appeal to possible recruits to join
and support the violent Islamists in Iraq and Syria.
US commanders and senior officials have previously said the ISIS group has shown a great acumen for propaganda
and for promoting itself to potential jihadist recruits.
The group has called for lone wolf attacks in coalition countries, including the United States, Canada, Japan and Italy.
Obama Administration Keeps ‘Losing’ Weapons to the Enemy
When will the Obama Administration be held accountable?
“Property of the US Government” in the hands of the enemy. (Photo source:
By: Rachel Molschky
In at least three separate cases, the US government under Obama’s watch has lost track of weapons and other
military equipment. While the President is quick to point the finger at former President George Bush for the Iraq War,
he conveniently stays mum when it comes to his own administration’s negligence in allowing the enemy to gain
control of American weaponry.
The Washington Post reports:
“The Pentagon is unable to account for more than $500 million in U.S. military aid given to Yemen, amid fears that the
weaponry, aircraft and equipment is at risk of being seized by Iranian-backed rebels or al-Qaeda, according to U.S.
“… ‘We have to assume it’s completely compromised and gone,’ said a legislative aide on Capitol Hill who spoke on
the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.”
Accomplished military leader and former Congressman, Lieutenant Colonel Allen West writes:
“At a time when our debt is soaring, you’d think fiscal responsibility would have a preeminent position in the psyche of
the federal government. Furthermore, you’d presume maintaining control of aid and arms supplies in the Middle East
would be of highest concern. I’ve seen several photos of ISIS fighters with M4 Carbines in their possession, so this
story is particularly disconcerting.”
The US air dropped weapons meant for the Kurds to battle ISIS, but they fell into the hands of the enemy.
The Daily Beast:
“At least one bundle of U.S. weapons airdropped in Syria appears to have fallen into the hands of ISIS, a dangerous
misfire in the American mission to speed aid to Kurdish forces making their stand in Kobani.
“An ISIS-associated YouTube account posted a new video online Tuesday entitled, ‘Weapons and munitions dropped
by American planes and landed in the areas controlled by the Islamic State in Kobani.’
“The video was also posted on the Twitter account of ‘a3maq news,’ which acts as an unofficial media arm of ISIS.
The outfit has previously posted videos of ISIS fighters firing American made Howitzer cannons and seizing marijuana
fields in Syria.
“ISIS had broadly advertised its acquisition of a broad range of U.S.-made weapons during its rampage across Iraq.
ISIS videos have showed its fighters driving U.S. tanks, MRAPs, Humvees. There are unconfirmed reports ISIS has
stolen three fighter planes from Iraqi bases it conquered.”
This is in addition to the US-backed Syrian rebels who became ISIS as well as many other cases across the Middle
East when the wrong people were supported. Obama’s favored Muslim Brotherhood, for example, has now been
classified as a terrorist organization by both Egypt and Saudi Arabia (but still not by the US), yet during the Arab
Spring, MB President Morsi was portrayed by Obama’s Administration as a democratic leader, even as blasphemy
arrests and the persecution of Christians and other violence escalated under this wonderful example of democracy.
Furthermore, while the aid money the US sends to the Palestinian Authority is not supposed to be used for terrorism,
naturally, it is. The PA pays Palestinian terrorists in Israeli prisons, and some of these people have murdered citizens
of the nation which is supposed to be America’s closest ally. And the additional aid the US has pledged to help rebuild
Gaza is unlikely to rebuild anything but terror tunnels and restock the Hamas arsenal. Even Qatar is fed up with the
cement they’ve provided being sold on the black market, rather than being used to build homes- and this is Qatar, a
big supporter of Hamas.
The goal of Hamas is to destroy Israel, and of course it is a terrorist organization. But now terror group Hezbollah and
Iran, both enemies to the US as well as to Israel, have been taken off a report meant to inform the US Senate entitled
“Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Community,” written by James Clapper, the Director of
National Intelligence. In other words, Iran and Hezbollah are not considered to be threats.
Ignoring the threat will not make it go away. Arming the threat, albeit intentionally or unintentionally, is inexcusable.
And nothing can be worse than providing Iran with what it needs to create a nuclear weapon.
Obama has recently sent a taped message to Iran, in which among many things, he said, “… a nuclear deal now can
help open the door to a brighter future for you — the Iranian people, who, as heirs to a great civilization, have so
much to give to the world.”
The speech was part of an Iranian New Year’s message Obama had sent to one of America’s biggest enemies.
(Incidentally, only 11 percent of Americans view Iran favorably , and 77 percent see it as a critical threat. Arab
governments are also concerned about the deal.)
During Obama’s Presidency, the US has not only armed the wrong people in the Middle East, but also criminals next
Fast and Furious
LA Times:
“A federal operation dubbed Fast and Furious allowed weapons from the U.S. to pass into the hands of suspected gun
smugglers so the arms could be traced to the higher echelons of Mexican drug cartels. The Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which ran the operation, has lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which
have been linked to crimes, including the fatal shooting of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.”
Mexico is also demanding answers. At least 150 Mexicans have also been killed using these weapons provided to the
criminals, courtesy of the ATF.
“This is a serious violation of international law,” said lawmaker Carlos Ramirez Marin, a member of the opposition
Institutional Revolutionary Party and president of the Chamber of Deputies. “What happens if next time they need to
introduce trained assassins or nuclear weapons?”
Read Sharyl Attkisson’s New York Post piece entitled, “How Eric Holder Spun the ‘Fast and Furious’ Scandal to a
Lapdog Media,” and “Here Are 5 Things You Didn’t Know About Operation Fast and Furious” at The Blaze. (For a
preview, one fact is that the Cartel violence spiked during 2009 when the operation was “in full swing.”)
So what can we deduce from all of this? Negligence? Incompetence? Perhaps in certain cases. When it comes to the
Middle East, it gets more complicated. And when it comes to Iran, no one can accuse Obama of not being wellinformed. He refuses to listen to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, and he refuses to listen to his own Congressmen
who protest the Iran deal. Where this is all leading cannot be good.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney has recently stated that Barack Obama is the worst President of his lifetime.
Good point, but he will most likely go down in history as one of the worst Presidents of all time. He has compromised
the security of the United States, and the consequences are serious.
Malaysia’s Islamic Authorities Declare “Jihad” Against
Imam Kerry unavailable for comment.
KUALA LUMPUR, March 20 ― In its Friday sermon today, Malaysia’s federal Islamic authorities
warned that Muslims are now stuck between two extremes: the liberals, and militant jihadists Islamic
State (IS).
Accusing liberals of questioning and provoking the position of Islam in the country, the Malaysian
Islamic Development Department (Jakim) urged Muslims nationwide to initiate “jihad” by rejecting
such ideologies, referring to the “holy struggle” that is mandated of Muslims.
“We should reject the two extremisms … We believe the effort to curb these two extremisms which
are religious and liberalism extremists, is a major ‘jihad’,” the sermon said today.
“Especially when this involves the effort to preserve the position, upholding and exalting the position of
Islam as the religion of the state.”
The sermon accused liberals of being worried with the allegedly balanced and just implementation of
Islamic teachings and codes in the country, causing them to attack religious institutions by sowing
distrust and misperception against them.
Kerry in Wonderland - French May Take Lead & Pull Plug on
Iranian Nuclear Talks
1 hour
As children, many of us enjoyed the Lewis Carroll tale of Alice in Wonderland. We loved the talking animals, which
made no real sense. Everyone loves the Cheshire Cat and his circular logic. Yet, it is not half as fun when the Cat is
played by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. He would have us to believe that up is down.
Reuters reports:
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Saturday talks with Iran on curbing its nuclear program
have made "genuine progress" and it was time to make "hard decisions" to reach a framework accord.
"We are not rushing … but we recognize that fundamental decisions have to be made now and they
don't get any easier as time goes by," Kerry said.
Kerry has not mentioned the things that the Iranians need to do to come closer to a resolution. Did you catch that? It
was not, "We know that a lot needs to be done and we hope that Iran will make the hard decisions." John Kerry's
comments were not directed at the Iranians but at congress and the other members of the negotiations. Members
such as France.
I have always been a little suspect of the French. The reason is that in the 80' they would have sold the gun a robber
would need to hold up their mother. Most weapon technology the Iraq's developed had French influence. And the
French were ignoring sanction on Iraq just before Gulf War I. But, now that things have gone sideways with their
Muslim population, they seem to be changing their policies.
Reuters reported elsewhere:
France's foreign minister (Laurent Fabius) said on Saturday that his country wanted an agreement
over Iran's nuclear program that was sufficiently robust to guarantee that Tehran could not acquire an
atomic bomb.
Though the French have drank the pluralistic Kool-Aid, it seems they are waking from the fog of foolish dreaming.
Kerry and his leftist humanistic buddies have a false view of man. When you think that all men are, at the heart, good,
then you have to invent another reason for their wicked deeds. For the humanist, it is the idea that men rape, murder,
steal, and wage war on their neighbors because of two reasons: They are either uneducated or are controlled by
But this is not what the Bible teaches us on this matter. Men rape, murder, steal, and wage war on their neighbors
because they enjoy those activities. Their wicked heart delights in those things and I can prove to you that you suffer
from the same malady, even if it is to a lesser extent. What is your favorite movie or T.V. show? Is it not the ones with
the most violence?
As well, the Bible testifies against man. Genesis 6:5 reads:
Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the
thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
And it seems that if Kerry will not have the region and the world's best interest in mind, maybe Fabius will. He said
"This accord must be robust. Why? Because we have to protect ourselves from the eventuality of an
Iranian atomic bomb.
"But also if the accord is not sufficiently solid then regional countries would say it's not serious enough,
so we are also going to get the nuclear weapon, and that would lead to an extremely dangerous
nuclear proliferation."
While Kerry tries his hand at making all the world equal, hopefully France will stand strong. If not, we might be faced
with a world where the leader in terrorism has the bomb. God help us.
After Obama Slobbers All Over the Mullahs, Ayatollah Calls on
U.S. Youth to Join Jihad
-By Warner Todd Huston
On Friday, President Barack Obama slobbered all over himself to come to the aide of
the Iranian Mullahs–mostly to spite our Israeli allies. But on the very same day
Obama gave the Mullahs his undying love, the Ayatollah urged our own kids to join
the world wide movement of violent, Islamist jihad.
On Friday, Obama disgorged a “holiday” statement telling the Mullahs that he was
celebrating the Muslim holiday of Nowruz (this one a non-religious holiday). During
the statement Obama slobbered all over the wonderfulness of the Mullahs and
treated them as America’s true friend.
Yeah, these are the same people who kidnapped the American hostages in 1979, the
same people famed for their “death to America” rallies, the same people who have
exported terrorism all around the world and helped our enemies killing hundreds of
American soldiers in Iraq. These are the people Obama says are his friends.
I say his friends, because these Islamist terrorists are not America’s friends. Obama sure may love them, but they
don’t love us. And they never, ever will.
Anyway, even as Obama made such a fool of himself on this wunnerful, wunnerful Nowruz day, the very Ayatollah that
Obama said is our fast friend issued a statement of his own. In his statement, the Ayatollah called for our children to
join violent jihad and kill all of us.
This is Obama’s great friend.
If you can stomach this creep, here is his video statement:
Obama disgorged a series of lies in his Nowruz statement, but no paragraph was more filled with lies than this one:
As I have said many times before, I believe that our countries should be able to resolve this issue
peacefully, with diplomacy. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has issued a fatwa against the
development of nuclear weapons, and President Rouhani has said that Iran would never develop a
nuclear weapon. Together with the international community, the United States has said that Iran should
have access to peaceful nuclear energy, consistent with Iran’s international obligations. So there is a
way for Iran–if it is willing to take meaningful, verifiable steps–to assure the world that its nuclear
program is, in fact, for peaceful purposes only.
There are several lies, there, of course, but the biggest one is Obama’s claim that the Mullahs issued a “fatwa”
against nuclear arms. This is a flat out lie.
No Ayatollah, no Mullah, and no Iranian has ever issued any such fatwa.
As Andrew McCarthy wrote today, the whole claim is a lie.
The invaluable Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has done extensive research into
compilations of Khamenei’s published fatwas. (See here and here, and citations therein.) No such
fatwa has ever been published.
In a sharia state, particularly the one in Iran that is actually run by the country’s top sharia jurists,
fatwas are important statements of governing law, like statutes are in the U.S. Yet despite repeated
requests, Iran has never produced the purported anti-nuclear weapons fatwa from Khamenei.
McCarthy even notes that Islam is not incompatible with nuclear arms. After all Pakistan is one of the most strict
sharia states in history and it has had nuclear arms for decades.
Regardless, Iran has no fatwa on nuclear weapons despite Obama’s lies.
Finally, Obama delivered a final outrage in his Nowruz statement by saying that Republicans are exactly like the
Iran’s worst Islamist terrorists.
About the desire for diplomacy, Obama said this:
The days and weeks ahead will be critical. Our negotiations have made progress, but gaps remain.
And there are people, in both our countries and beyond, who oppose a diplomatic resolution. My
message to you–the people of Iran–is that, together, we have to speak up for the future we seek.

Holy Iranian Leader Khamenei BLASTS Obama – Accuses
US of Arming #ISIS on Twitter
Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, March 21, 2015, 1:53 PM
It seems like it was just yesterday Obama Obama was out rubbing the Iranian regime’s belly.
Today Khamenei returned the favor by blasting “arrogant” Obama and the US.
And he called Obama a liar.
He wasn’t through yet.
Khamenei also accused Obama of arming ISIS.
Khamanei followed that up with a tweet declaring God backs the Iranian nation’s resistance.
It sounds like those Iranian nuke talks are going swell, huh?
Who would have ever guessed that you cannot trust the Iranian regime?
Rep Louie Gohmert – It’s Time To Bomb Iran, Anything That
Resembles A Nuclear Facility With Centrifuges
Rep Louie Gohmert (R-TX) was interviewed on the “Washington Watch” program by host Tony Perkins on the March
18 th program, with the conversation turning to the Marxist agenda that is being promoted by the current occupant of
the White House.
They discuss how the regime is not only pressuring other nations to bend over backwards to adopt the prohomosexual posture being displayed in his White House, but how it is also failing to act in the persecution of
Christians and other minorities in the path of Islamic terrorist groups such as Boko Haram.
Perkins asks Rep Gohmert where the relationship between the United States, under this “president,” and Israel goes
from here. Rep Gohmert says he hopes that Israel’s right to defend itself might finally be recognized in the Congress
and offers his view that it’s time to take out Iran’s nuclear program militarily.
He points to the evidence that this is all little more than a rope-a-dope of sorts designed to buy Iran enough time to
develop their nuclear program while the rest of the world talks, hopes for the best and kids themselves. He notes how
the centrifuges have never even slowed down during this entire “negotiating” period.
He says, “This is serious stuff and I don’t think we ought to put Israel into the position of having to save both
themselves and the United States. I think it’s time to bomb Iran. Anything that resembles a nuclear facility with
centrifuges, it’s time to bomb.”
Rep Gohmert adds, “And we need to make it clear to Iran, you can play these silly games with our ‘president’ that
buys into them and our Secretary of State, but the American people aren’t buying it and you’re going to pay a price.
We have got to get that message across or there’ll never be a diplomatic solution, unless they know we’re serious
about coming and taking out what they’re trying to do.”

Iran Nuclear Deal | Negotiations
William A.
Saturday, March 21, 2015 at 10:31am
Last night we started a flash poll as to whether to laugh or cry as to Obama’s video message to Iranian youth for the
Norouz (Persian New Year) festival, in which Obama practically begged them to help reach a nuke deal.
As if Iranian youth have any say in it. When the youth of Iran rose up against the Mullahs in 2009, Obama was silent
for weeks, and then implicitly backed the continuation of the Mullah regime. Keeping the Mullahs in power has been a
prime goal of this administration.
News flash: The Mullahs are not interested in Obama’s speeches.
Iranian Press TV reports on a Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution,
delivered for Norouz. The first point Khamenei made on the nuclear negotiations was a rebuttal to Obama’s video
statement in which Obama suggested that hardliners in Iran, the U.S. and elsewhere (i.e., Israel) were against a deal:
Touching on the ongoing nucearl talks between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, the Leader
mentioned a few points on the negotiatons.
Ayatollah Khamenei said the first point is that the United States government is in dire need of nuclear
“Obama’s Norouz message included dishonest assertions and his claim of friendship for Iranian
people was not sincere,” the Leader said, noting that Obama’s claim that there are people in Iran who
do not want nuclear case to be resolved through diplomacy is a lie.
What the Iranian nation is resisting against is bullying approach of the United States, Ayatollah
Khamenei noted.
“They [the Americans] say [to Iranian negotiators] ‘you come here and listen to what we say and
implement them word for word’. But our nation will resist against it and will never accept this.”
Next, the Ayatollah rejected any attempt to tie regional issues (i.e., Iran’s expansion through proxies) into the nuclear
The second point, Ayatollah Khamenei said, negotiations with the United States are just about the
nuclear case and does not cover regional issues or issues related to Iran’s domestic issues, including
defense matters.
“Iran and the US have opposite views on regional issues. We want security and calm in the region, but
the Arrogant powers led by the America pursue the policy of sowing insecurity in the region, which is
quite the opposite of our goals.”
Last, the Ayatollah laid down a red line on lifting of sanctions:
The third point, as put by the Leader, was removal of anti-Iran sanctions, which should be discussed
as a part of nuclear talks, and should not be considered a result of those talks.
Ayatollah Khamenei added, “The America says ‘we sign the agreement and monitor [Iran's] behavior
and then remove the sanctions’. This is erroneous and unacceptable and Iran will never accept this.
This is the Americans’ ploy. Removal of sanctions should be part of any agreement.”
(added) The Ayatollah has just taken to Twitter (as this post went live) to drive home the point on sanctions:
Update: Khamenei calls ‘Death to America’ as Kerry hails progress on nuke deal:
Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called for “Death to America” on Saturday, a day after President
Barack Obama appealed to Iran to seize a “historic opportunity” for a nuclear deal and a better future,
and as US Secretary of State John Kerry claimed substantial progress toward an accord.
Khamenei told a crowd in Tehran that Iran would not capitulate to Western demands. When the crowd
started shouting, “Death to America,” the ayatollah responded: “Of course yes, death to America,
because America is the original source of this pressure.
Obama Begs Iran To Return Americans
Now that he’s buddying up to the terrorist Iranian regime by refusing to impose sanctions to stop its nuclear program,
on Friday President Obama called upon the "familial spirit" of the Persian new year to beg Iran to free three Americans
jailed there and find a fourth who is missing. Obama released a statement saying, “The spirit of family is deeply
woven into all of the rich cultural traditions of the Nowruz holiday. It is a time for reuniting and rejoicing with loved
ones and sharing hopes for the new year.”
The three Americans jailed are Saeed Abedini, an Iranian-American Christian pastor sentenced in 2013 to eight years
in prison for organizing churches in homes; Amir Hekmati, a former marine captured in 2011 when he visited his
family in Iran, later accused of espionage, and Jason Rezaian, the Washington Post’s Tehran correspondent since
2012, imprisoned in July of 2014.
Robert Levinson, retired from the FBI, disappeared from Kish Island in March 2007.
Obama concluded, “In honor of the familial spirit so strongly enshrined within this holiday and for the Abedini,
Hekmati, Rezaian, and Levinson families, I hope this new spring is filled with joyous moments for us all with all of our
loved ones by our sides.”
Obama has been sending love notes to Iran for years; in September 2013, he wrote Iranian President Hasan Rouhani
a "positive and constructive" letter congratulating him on his election, as Rouhani told NBC News. In October 2014,
he wrote a secret note asking for help in fighting ISIS and reassuring iran not to be concerned that he would
undermine the dictator President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, according to the Wall Street Journal.
In 2012, Obama sent a letter to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei through Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan
saying Obama could accept an Iranian civilian nuclear program after Khamenei had said Iran would “never pursue
nuclear weapons.” According to the Washington Post, Obama blustered to Erdogan “that the Iranians should realize
that time is running out for a peaceful settlement and that Tehran should take advantage of the current window for
Three years later, Obama is still “negotiating” with Iran.
Why is John Kerry Lying About A Nuke Fatwa?
The Obama administration may not have much use for federal law or for Congress’s constitutional role in providing
advice on, determining whether to consent to, and enacting any legislation necessary to implement international
agreements. But it exhibits cloying reverence for a fatwa — a sharia law edict — issued by a jurist who runs a regime
that is the world’s leading state sponsor of jihadist terror.
Even when the fatwa is a patent hoax.
Secretary of State Kerry, like his predecessor Hillary Clinton and his boss President Obama, took time out from his
tirades against Senate Republicans’ exposition of the Constitution to praise the fatwa the administration claims that
Iran’s top mullah, Ayatollah Khamenei, issued against nuclear weapons. As the Weekly Standard’s Jeryl Bier reports,
Kerry, in the course of addressing the administration’s negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program, told the press
during a visit to Egypt:
As you all know, Iran says it doesn’t want a nuclear weapon, and that is a very welcome statement that
the Supreme Leader has, in fact, incorporated into a fatwa. And we have great respect — great
respect — for the religious importance of a fatwa.
Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also sounded a hopeful note about this supposed fatwa in 2012, claiming to
have discussed it with “a number of experts and religious scholars,” as well as with Turkey’s Islamist then-prime
minister (now president) Recep Tayyip Erdogan. In 2013, President Obama himself proclaimed:
[T]he Supreme Leader [Khamenei] has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons,
and President Rouhani has just recently reiterated that the Islamic Republic will never develop a
nuclear weapon.
But the “fatwa” in question does not exist.
The invaluable Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has done extensive research into compilations of
Khamenei’s published fatwas. (See here and here, and citations therein.) No such fatwa has ever been published .
In a sharia state, particularly the one in Iran that is actually run by the country’s top sharia jurists, fatwas are important
statements of governing law, like statutes are in the U.S. Yet despite repeated requests, Iran has never produced the
purported anti-nuclear weapons fatwa from Khamenei.
Indeed, as MEMRI elaborates, Khamenei was directly asked about the purported fatwa in a 2012 Facebook
[I]s it also forbidden to obtain nuclear weapons, as per your ruling that their use is prohibited?
He refused to answer the question:
Your question has no jurisprudential aspect. When it has a jurisprudent [sic] position, then it will be
possible to answer it.
The notion that Khamenei actually believes nuclear weapons violate Islamic law and would issue a credible fatwa to
that effect should be seen as absurd on its face. Put aside that Pakistan, which incorporates sharia in its law, has long
had nuclear weapons. For over two decades, al-Qaeda has been trying to acquire nuclear weapons and has
enjoyed essential support from the regime in Tehran.
Oil-rich Iran has no need to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes. It has explicitly threatened to wipe
Israel off the map. It has been busily been developing weapons systems capable of delivering nuclear bombs
in conjunction with its uranium enrichment. It could not be more obvious that Khamenei’s regime, far from rejecting
nuclear weapons as anti-Islamic, seeks to acquire them in order to promote the imposition of its Islamic-supremacist
Moreover, as MEMRI further documents, there is a published fatwa on the subject of nuclear weapons from credible
Shiite sharia scholars. In 2006, it was reported that jurists in Qom had issued a fatwa explicitly stating that “sharia
does not forbid the use of nuclear weapons.”
Although the date seems to shift, Iranian officials began claiming in about 2005 that Khamenei had promulgated an
anti-nuke fatwa. The disingenuous suggestion was made in connection with Iran’s shrewd conclusion that the best
route to developing nuclear weapons internally was to pretend that its nuclear program was peaceful.
Obama administration officials, who are desperate to strike a deal with Iran and to convince themselves that Iran
might become an American ally in the Middle East, understand that the mullahs will never allow the kind of rigorous
inspection system that would make an agreement trustworthy. They are thus emphasizing the phantom fatwa as a
rationale for making an unacceptable deal: You are supposed to say to yourself, “We needn’t worry about the inability
to verify that the Iranians are not constructing nukes because the Islamic ruler has solemnly forbidden it.”
But even if you were inclined to such self-delusion, the fact is: Khamenei has not forbidden nuclear weapons.
As Breitbart’s Joel Pollak has observed, Kenneth Pollack, a serious national security expert who is particularly
influential among Democrats, discussed the purported Khamenei fatwa in his book Unthinkable: Iran, the Bomb, and
American Strategy. Pollack notes not only that the fatwa has never been formally issued but also that Iran disregards
fatwas when they prove inconvenient to perceived national interests. Thus did the founder of the Iranian jihadist state,
Ayatollah Khomeini, ignore his own fatwa against weapons of mass destruction during the long war with Iraq in
the 1980s.
It would be lunacy, in a matter crucial to American national security, to rely on a fatwa from the head of a jihadist-terror
state even if such a fatwa actually existed. But it doesn’t.
Obama and Kerry Seek to Finalize an Iranian Nuclear Deal as
Nuclear Conflict Draws Near
March 22,
By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
As a nuclear pact with
Iran draws near,
signed in blood by
John Kerry and
Barack Obama, Iran’s
Supreme leader Ali
Khamenei calls for
“Death to America” on
Saturday. Could it get
any more suicidally
insane? Obama is
urging Iran to seize an
‘historic opportunity‘
for a nuclear deal.
One that has death to
the Great and Little
Satans written all over
it. You betcha it’ll be
historic… he’s
ordering an
apocalypse. It doesn’t
get much more
historic than that.
Khamenei whipped up
Iranian throngs of
Twelvers in Tehran
declaring that Iran
would not give in to
Western demands.
Predictably, the crowd started shouting, “Death to America” and the ayatollah proclaimed: “Of course yes, death to
America, because America is the original source of this pressure. They insist on putting pressure on our dear
people’s economy,” he said, referring to economic sanctions aimed at halting Iran’s nuclear program. “What is their
goal? Their goal is to put the people against the system,” he said. “The politics of America is to create insecurity,” he
added, referring both to US pressure on Iran and elsewhere in the region. His comments were in contrast with those
of Iranian President Hassan Rohani, who said “achieving a deal is possible” by the March 31 target date for a
preliminary accord. True double speak from the Iranians. My money is on Khamenei being more forthright in their
feelings for the American infidels.
John Kerry proved once again that he was as dense as a box of rocks as he moronically chirped that we have an
opportunity to get this right. What? An opportunity to wipe Israel and America off the map once and for all? Is that the
opportunity you foresee? It certainly isn’t what you are mouthing… that it will prove to the world once and for all that
Iran has no interest in nuclear weapons. Because nothing could be further from the glaring truth and Obama and
Kerry know it. I don’t know how the world can think that Iran will get nuclear capabilities and not nuclear weapons that
they will relish using. It’s either the most serious case of denial in history or they just can’t face evil. Either way, it is
death on a cracker for the West.
Right now, the US and Iran are drafting elements of a deal that commits the Iranians to a 40 percent cut in the number
of machines they use to enrich. The Obama administration is seeking a deal that stretches the time Tehran would
need to make a nuclear weapon from the present two to three months to at least a year. What difference in the end
does that make? None – you still get a nuclear Iran. A genocidal, theocratic regime that believes in Armageddon and
in fact, wants to usher it in. They also have no problem lying to infidels, so how can you take their word on anything?
Much less whether they will light up the West or not. Fools and much worse are negotiating this farce. Obama is
throwing threats around that aren’t meant for Iran – he’s positing whether to launch a military attack on Iran or allow it
to reach nuclear weapons capacity if the talks fail. That’s a threat to America. Support an American signed deal with
Iran, or we go to war with Iran or let them become a nuclear power without standing in their way at all. He thinks his
threat holds water… it doesn’t. War is inevitable with Iran either way. The clock is ticking and Israel will have to act
soon. Iran will not voluntarily stop, so someone will have to put them down. It won’t be Obama.

Iran has planned America’s demise for many, many years.
American officials have confirmed that Iranian military brass have
endorsed a nuclear electromagnetic pulse explosion that would
attack the country’s power system. They made this discovery
while translating a secret Iranian military handbook, raising new
concerns about Tehran’s recent nuclear talks with the administration. That won’t deter Obama one bit though.
From the Washington Examiner:
The issue of a nuclear EMP attack was raised in the final hours of this week’s elections in Israel when
U.S. authority Peter Vincent Pry penned a column for Arutz Sheva warning of Iran’s threat to free
“Iranian military documents describe such a scenario — including a recently translated Iranian military
textbook that endorses nuclear EMP attack against the United States,” he wrote.
A knowledgable source said that the textbook discusses an EMP attack on America in 20 different
Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks, who is leading an effort to protect the U.S. electric grid from an
EMP attack, has recently made similar claims based on the document translated by military authorities.
It’s not just Iran… North Korea, China and Russia are stepping up nuclear threats as well. A very likely scenario for
an EMP attack is by a ship or ships who could launch missiles off our Eastern Coast or via a satellite. If they were to
actually target 20 cities and pull it off, our power grid would go down and millions would die in the aftermath. People
don’t have to believe that – it is just a stone cold fact.
From Pry:
Iran armed with nuclear missiles poses an unprecedented threat to global civilization.
One nuclear warhead detonated at high-altitude over the United States would blackout the national
electric grid and other life sustaining critical infrastructures for months or years by means of an
electromagnetic pulse (EMP). A nationwide blackout lasting one year, according to the Congressional
EMP Commission, could cause chaos and starvation that leaves 90 percent of Americans dead.
Iranian military documents describe such a scenario–including a recently translated Iranian military
textbook that endorses nuclear EMP attack against the United States.
Thus, Iran with a small number of nuclear missiles can by EMP attack threaten the existence of
modernity and be the death knell for Western principles of international law, humanism and freedom.
For the first time in history, a failed state like Iran could destroy the most successful societies on Earth
and convert an evolving benign world order into world chaos.
Let’s turn to Russia next. Russia is developing a long-range cruise missile that poses a new threat to the United
States, the commander of the US Northern Command warned this week. But don’t worry… a Red Dawn scenario is
just absurd. Right.
From Bill Gertz:
“Russia is progressing toward its goal of deploying long-range, conventionally-armed cruise missiles
with ever increasing stand-off launch distances on its heavy bombers, submarines, and surface
combatants, augmenting the Kremlin’s toolkit of flexible deterrent options short of the nuclear
threshold,” Adm. William Gortney, Northcom chief who heads the U.S.-Canadian North American
Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) said Thursday.
“Should these trends continue, over time NORAD will face increased risk in our ability to defend North
America against Russian cruise missile threats,” he said in prepared testimony to the House Armed
Services subcommittee on strategic forces.
A defense official said the missile that concerns the Northcom commander is the Russian KH-101
cruise missile which Russia has developed as a weapon to attack critical infrastructure in the United
States, such as the electrical grid.
The comments highlight what defense officials and military analysts say is the growing threat of longrange cruise missiles.
Cruise missiles pose unique threats because they can defeat defenses by flying at low altitudes,
avoiding radars, and hiding behind terrain. Some newer cruise missiles have radar-evading stealth
features making them even less visible to radar or infrared detectors.
The low-flying missiles also can overwhelm defenses by attacking with multiple missiles coming from
different directions and defeating air defenses at their weakest points. They also can fly circuitous
routes to reach targets, avoiding radar and air defenses.
Testimony by Gortney and other senior officials at the hearing raised concerns that growing missile
capabilities could overwhelm U.S. defenses.
Vice Adm. James Syring, director of the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency, testified that North
Korea’s missile development, in particular, is a major concern. Syring said because of funding cuts he
may have to advise Gortney that “the [missile defense] system is over-matched.”
Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Mike Rogers (R., Ala.) said he is very concerned about funding
shortfalls for missile defense.
“The United States of America is on its way to losing its military edge, not just in terms of the ability to
project power, but to even defend the homeland,” Rogers said. “This situation is intolerable.”
Gortney, in his testimony, said: “We remain concerned with the development of conventional cruise
missiles that could provide near peer adversaries with options to strike the United States without the
perceived risk of retaliation of a nuclear exchange.”
The threat was highlighted in early September, when two Russian Tu-95 strategic bombes conducted
practice cruise missile bombing strikes on the United States from launch areas off the coast of eastern
Canada, U.S. defense officials said.
American brass are getting very nervous and concerned over these developments. And they should be. Adm. Cecil D.
Haney said in testimony to the Senate Armed Services Committee Thursday, “The concept of mating advanced
weapon systems with commonplace items—such as surface-to-surface cruise missiles disguised as shipping
containers—blurs the line between military and civilian environments and complicates our deterrence calculus.” What
is being discussed is the Russian KH-101 missile. It is a 5,000-kilometer [3,106-mile] range conventional cruise
missile. The KH-102 is nuclear. The KH-101 is configured for launch on Russian strategic bombers. There have been
Russian press reports that a sea-based variant is deployed on Russia’s Severodvinsk-class nuclear attack
According to NASIC, Russia’s Club-K cruise missile is sold in a “container launcher” that looks like a standard
shipping container. The Club-K can launch cruise missiles from cargo ships, trains, or commercial trucks. China also
has a new long-range cruise missile called the DH-10 and Iran’s land-attack cruise missile is the 1,242-mile-range
Meshkat. Feeling warm and fuzzy yet? Still think war isn’t in the near future?
Finally, let’s have a look at the Hermit Kingdom – North Korea. China has massively upped their financial backing of
the NoKos. North Korea has nuclear missiles and is prepared to use them at any time, an envoy for the country said
in a recent interview. Now, they’ve been saying this forever, but there are new developments. Right now, they are
saying if we attack them, they will strike back. But who really trusts the whack job that is Kim Jung Un? Of course, the
US keeps playing this threat down. I wonder how many people believe that anymore?
From War is Boring:
North Korea is attempting to put nuclear weapons to sea, according to a longtime regime watcher.
Joseph Bermudez — an expert on North Korean weapons — believes the evidence is commercial
satellite imagery showing a submarine with possibly two vertical launch tubes. The regime also
appears to have constructed a test stand for launching sea-based ballistic missiles.
The two revelations may not be directly related.
For one, the vessel might not end up carrying nuclear-capable missiles. But Bermudez’s evidence is
highly suggestive. And if the North is planning to put nukes aboard submarines, this would make Kim
Jong Un’s atomic arsenal more survivable in case of attack.
In October 2014, Bermudez observed an unidentified submarine at North Korea’s South Sinpo
Shipyard. The shipyard conducts research and development for naval weapons and warship
According to Bermudez, the submarine appeared to weigh around 900 to 1,500 tons in displacement.
The analyst tentatively nicknamed the still-under-construction vessel the Sinpo, and noted a
resemblance to former Yugoslavian submarines.
Intriguingly, satellite imagery from July 2014 revealed an empty space near the conning tower.
Pyongyang could install one or two vertically-launched missiles in this space. The shipyard also has a
nearby test stand for the development of long-range ballistic missiles.
The stand is “the right size and design to be used for the research, development, and testing of the
process of ejecting a missile out of a launch tube as well as evaluating its compatibility with
submarines and surface combatants,” Bermudez wrote.
That’s probably not a coincidence.
North Korea would most likely use nuclear weapons as a deterrent at present. But what if… what if China, North
Korea, Russia and Iran decided the US was vulnerable? Which currently, we are. That ought to keep you up at night,
especially with Barack Obama at the military helm. So, while Obama and Kerry work to finalize a nuclear deal with the
murderous Mullahs of Iran, a nuclear conflict is on our doorstep and drawing closer every day. This time without a
mutually assured destruction clause. That doesn’t work when your enemy is not afraid to die and would welcome the
Mahdi ushering in the End of Days.
Poll: Only 23% Of Americans Think Obama Can Sign Nuke Deal
With Iran Without Congressional Approval…
As if he cares.
Via Rasmussen:
Voters remain lukewarm about the nuclear deal the Obama administration is negotiating with Iran, and
most think it needs to be approved by Congress. But they aren’t happy with the letter 47 Republican
senators sent to the Iranian government putting the current negotiations in question either.
Thirty-seven percent (37%) of Likely U.S. Voters favor the administration’s deal seeking a 10-year
freeze on Iran’s nuclear development program in exchange for lifting some sanctions on the Iranian
economy. But the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that slightly more (39%)
still oppose such a deal. Twenty-five percent (25%) are not sure. […]
While voters are almost evenly divided over the deal itself, 60% believe any agreement the Obama
administration makes with Iran regarding the Iranian nuclear program requires the approval of
Congress. Just 23% disagree, while 17% are undecided.
Petraeus Sides With Netanyahu Against Obama: Iran, Not ISIS, Is
The Real Enemy
So now you know why Petraeus really got the boot, he suffers from “truthfulness”, a fatal flaw for staying in the world
of Barack Obama.
Via National Review:
Don’t just rely on Benjamin Netanyahu’s passionate advice to Congress on his way to reelection that
Iran is our arch enemy. Now we have the counsel of retired general David Petraeus, who gave a
remarkable interview this week to the Washington Post. Petraeus agrees with Netanyahu: Iran, not
ISIS, is the real enemy.
His message: “I would argue that the foremost threat to Iraq’s long-term stability and the broader
regional equilibrium is not the Islamic State; rather, it is Shiite militias, many backed by — and some
guided by — Iran.” The general adds, “Longer-term, Iranian-backed Shia militia could emerge as the
preeminent power in the country, one that is outside the control of the government and instead
answerable to Tehran.” (Italics mine.)
Netanyahu is arguing against a bad U.S.-Iran deal that might end the economic sanctions and permit
Iranian nuclear development after ten years. (Of course, nobody believes Iran will wait for, or permit,
true verification.) But the thrust of the Petraeus interview is that unless U.S. military strategy
completely changes, Iran is going to take over Iraq.

Jerusalem: US ‘reassessment’ threat aims to distract attention
from Iran nuke deal
Some in Jerusalem viewed White House threats of 'reassessing' ties as a way of
putting Israel on the defensive, US House Speaker Boehner to visit Israel.

Jerusalem is concerned that Washington’s threat to reassess US policy toward the Middle East diplomatic process is
an effort to deflect attention from the Iranian nuclear negotiations as they approach a conclusion, diplomatic sources
said Saturday.
Despite a congratulatory phone call from US President Barack Obama to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
Thursday night, and Netanyahu clarifying in several US media interviews since his reelection on Tuesday that he
remains committed to the two-state solution, Washington continued to threaten to “reassess” its position on the
Mideast diplomatic process over the weekend, even as it continued to pledge continued security support for Israel.
Some in Jerusalem viewed this as a way of putting Israel on the defensive, and perhaps blunting Netanyahu’s
criticism of a possible deal with Iran.
Netanyahu’s comment on Monday, the day before the election, that a Palestinian state would not emerge as long as
he is prime minister, as well as his Election Day encouragement to his supporters to go to the polls ostensibly
because Arab voters were voting en masse, triggered fierce criticism in Washington.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at his daily press briefing on Friday that if Israel was no longer
committed to a two-state solution then that would impact on US policy decisions at the UN, a hint that the US may not
protect Israel down the line from what Jerusalem views as problematic UN Security Council resolutions calling for two
states. Any re-evaluation of policy, Earnest stressed, would “not include a reassessment of our strong and close
security cooperation with Israel,” which he said “will endure.”
Obama, in his first public comments on the election in an interview with the Huffington Post on Friday said of
Netanyahu's comment regarding a Palestinian state that “We take him at his word when he said that it wouldn't
happen during his prime ministership, and so that's why we've got to evaluate what other options are available to
make sure that we don't see a chaotic situation in the region.”
Regarding Netanyahu's comment about the Arab voters, Obama said that in his conversation with the prime minister
“we indicated that that kind of rhetoric was contrary to what is the best of Israel's traditions. “
Obama said that “although Israel was founded based on the historic Jewish homeland and the need to have a Jewish
homeland, Israeli democracy has been premised on everybody in the country being treated equally and fairly. And I
think that that is what's best about Israeli democracy. If that is lost, then I think that not only does it give ammunition to
folks who don't believe in a Jewish state, but it also I think starts to erode the name of democracy in the country."
Earnest said that if Israel were no longer committed to a two-state solution, this would impact US policy decisions at
the UN. This was a clear hint that the US may not protect Israel down the line from what Jerusalem views as
problematic UN Security Council resolutions calling for two states. Any re-evaluation of policy, Earnest stressed,
would “not include a reassessment of our strong and close security cooperation with Israel,” which he said “will
“But, now that our closest ally in the region, and one of the two parties who would be responsible for negotiating a
two-state solution, has withdrawn from their commitments to that ideal, it means that we need to rethink the kinds of
policy decisions that we’re going to have to make going forward,” he said.
Asked why the White House does not believe Netanyahu when he said in post-election interviews that he was still
committed to a two-state solution, Earnest said because “he said earlier this week that he wasn’t.” The spokesman
did not give a direct reply when reminded that Obama has reversed himself on policy matters over the years.
While the PMO did not issue a read-out of the call from the president, which came four days earlier than it did in
2013, when Obama waited six days to congratulate Netanyahu, the White House did issue a statement that said
Obama “emphasized the importance the United States places on our close military, intelligence and security
cooperation with Israel, which reflects the deep and abiding partnership between both countries.”
The statement said the two men agreed to continue consultations on a range of regional issues, “including the IsraeliPalestinian conflict,” and that Obama reaffirmed America’s “long-standing commitment to a two-state solution that
results in a secure Israel alongside a sovereign and viable Palestine.”
The statement said that, regarding Iran, Obama reiterated that Washington is focused on “reaching a comprehensive
deal with Iran that prevents Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon and verifiably assures the international community
of the exclusively peaceful nature of its nuclear program.”
In a related development, Netanyahu on Saturday gave his full backing to Israel’s ambassador to the US, Ron
Dermer, amid whispers in Washington that replacing Dermer may be necessary to restore a better working
relationship with the Obama administration.
A statement put out Saturday by the Prime Minister’s Office said Netanyahu made clear at the AIPAC conference
earlier in March that he “couldn’t be prouder to have Ron Dermer representing Israel in Washington.”
“That is as true today as it was then,” the statement read. “The prime minister has full confidence in Ambassador
Dermer, whose service to the people and State of Israel continue to reflect his extraordinary dedication,
professionalism, and passion.”
The statement came after Earnest was asked at his daily briefing whether work to repair the relationship could take
place with Dermer as ambassador.
Earnest said the decision about ambassadorial appointments “is the responsibility of the leaders of the country. And
so, obviously, Prime Minister Netanyahu will decide who is the person who is best positioned to represent his country
in the United States.”
Last week, The New York Times quoted administration officials as saying it would “improve the atmosphere” if Dermer
stepped down, though it would not change fundamental policy differences between Washington and Jerusalem.
Dermer, viewed by some administration officials since his appointment in September 2013 as too close to the
Republicans, sparked anger in the White House because it perceived him as being responsible for working with
House Speaker John Boehner to invite Netanyahu to address Congress on Iran.
Boehner, meanwhile, is expected to visit Israel before the end of the month. One government official, asked about the
wisdom of Boehner – a stalwart Obama political adversary – coming now at a point of great friction between
Netanyahu and Obama, said “If the speaker of the House of Representatives wants to come to Israel, he is a
welcome guest.”
Earnest was asked about the Boehner visit in his press briefing and said that it is “certainly not uncommon for
members of Congress in both parties to travel to Israel,” adding that “it doesn’t come as a surprise to anybody here.”

Chuck Todd: Obama Officials Pushing For Allowing U.N. To
Unilaterally Declare Palestinian State…
In my opinion Obama would do it in a heartbeat if he thought he could get away with it politically in America.
GUEST HOST ARI MELBER : Chuck, you follow these things closely and you know a lot of people at
the White House. In your view, is this the toughest it’s been in this relationship in the Obama era, even
tougher perhaps than right after the address?
TODD: It’s definitely the toughest. It’s not anywhere close. I mean right now, you have people inside
the White House in the administration that are very much calling for the U.S. to support potential —
any sort of U.N. action that might recognize an independent Palestine or that might try to attempt to
jump start and force a two-state solution in a way that – U.N. involvement is something the United
States has prevented for quite some time. And now you have basically a divided White House
internally on this question.
I think it is a generational divide when it comes to these things. I think some of the older folks in the
White House are saying, ‘hey, it is about Israel, not about an individual, so let things wait.’ But look, it’s
not good. And I think that’s why Netanyahu tried to backtrack as fast as he did.
White House Antagonism Toward Netanyahu Grows
WASHINGTON — The White House is stepping up its antagonism toward Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu despite his victory in this week’s elections, signaling that it is in no rush to repair a historic rift between the
United States and Israel.
The sharpened tone indicates that the Obama administration may be re-evaluating its relationship with its closest ally
in the Middle East, having lost patience with Mr. Netanyahu in the closing days of an election campaign in which he
spotlighted deep disagreements with President Obama over aPalestinian state and a nuclear deal with Iran.
“You reach a tipping point,” said Daniel C. Kurtzer, a former American ambassador to Israel and Egypt. “It’s the
culmination of six and a half years of frustration, including some direct hits at the president’s prestige and the office of
the presidency.”
The aggressiveness underlines a calculation by Mr. Obama that an international accord with Iran to rein in its nuclear
program is within reach despite Mr. Netanyahu’s adamant opposition, and that there is little value in being more
conciliatory toward him.

Netanyahu's History on Palestinian Statehood
And, domestically, the administration is risking the alienation of a core Democratic constituency of Jewish voters, in
part banking on the fact that many of them also are upset with Mr. Netanyahu.
“In a way, the administration has already won,” said Aaron David Miller, a former Middle East adviser to Democratic
and Republican administrations. “If you get agreement by the end of March, it will be historic in nature, it will have
demonstrated that the administration is prepared to willfully stand up to Republican opposition in Congress and to deal
with members of its own party who have doubts, and has withstood Israeli pressure.”
In a congratulatory call to Mr. Netanyahu on Thursday that Mr. Obama waited two days to place, the president chided
the prime minister for his pre-election declaration that no Palestinian state would be established on his watch.
Although Mr. Netanyahu has since tried to backtrack on those comments, Mr. Obama said that they had nonetheless
forced his administration to reassess certain aspects of its policy toward Israel, according to a White House official
who offered details of the call only on the condition of anonymity.
For the second consecutive day on Friday, the White House publicly questioned Mr. Netanyahu’s sincerity about the
Israeli-Palestinian peace process, suggesting that Mr. Obama did not trust him to back Palestinian statehood, a central
element of United States policy in the Middle East.
Asked why the president did not take the prime minister at his word about his support for a two-state solution, Josh
Earnest, the White House press secretary, quickly shot back: “Well, I guess the question is, which one?”
“The divergent comments of the prime minister legitimately call into question his commitment to this policy principle
and his lack of commitment to what has been the foundation of our policy-making in the region,” Mr. Earnest said.
He said Mr. Netanyahu had raised questions about his “true view” on a two-state solution. “Words matter,” Mr.
Earnest said.
On the call between the two leaders, the president also discussed the prime minister’s Election Day comments about
Israeli Arabs’ going to the polls in “droves,” which were interpreted widely as an attempt to suppress the Arab vote
and prompted outrage in Mr. Obama’s administration and around the world.
The tense conversation came on the same day the White House announced that Denis R. McDonough, Mr. Obama’s
chief of staff, would deliver the keynote address on Monday to the annual conference of J Street, a pro-Israel group
aligned with Democrats that has been fiercely critical of Mr. Netanyahu.
The moves confirmed that instead of acting quickly to smooth over tensions with Mr. Netanyahu that burst to the fore
in the weeks running up to the Israeli elections, the White House is stoking the acrimony.
What is less clear is whether the approach will lead to a lasting policy shift or was merely a public round of venting.
“You have a dysfunctional and unproductive relationship which is being played out publicly, and you’re now at the
point where there are two options, meltdown or dial-down,” Mr. Miller said.
So far, the White House has stopped short of concrete action to challenge Mr. Netanyahu, such as calling on him to
remove his ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer. An American-born former Republican operative, Mr.
Dermer angered the administration when he helped congressional Republicans arrange, without the White House’s
knowledge, the prime minister’s speech to Congress this month denouncing Mr. Obama’s efforts to strike a nuclear
deal with Iran.
Mr. Earnest said on Friday that it was up to Mr. Netanyahu to decide who should represent Israel in the United States,
and that the White House would maintain an “open line of communication” as it reassessed its policy.
Mark Regev, Mr. Netanyahu’s spokesman, said on Friday that the prime minister “couldn’t be prouder” of Mr. Dermer,
in whom he had “full confidence.”
Jeremy Ben-Ami, J Street’s executive director, said the Obama administration’s refusal to allow Mr. Netanyahu to
backtrack on his comments against a Palestinian state was appropriate, saying such statements should have
“In his actions, he’s not actually doing anything to repair the wound or to heal the wound that was opened by his and
the ambassador’s actions,” Mr. Ben-Ami said of Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Dermer.
At the same time, Mr. Ben-Ami added, the rift between Mr. Obama and Mr. Netanyahu “is built on policy and
substantive disagreement, and there’s no erasing that.”
Administration officials have suggested that they may now agree to passage of a United Nations Security Council
resolution embodying the principles of a two-state solution based on Israel’s 1967 borders and mutually agreed
exchanges of territory, a step that would be anathema to Mr. Netanyahu.
But Mr. Obama assured Mr. Netanyahu in the phone call on Thursday that the United States placed a high priority on
its security cooperation with Israel, which receives more than $3 billion a year in American military aid. On Friday,
Mr. Earnest said the reassessment of policy that Mr. Obama envisions would not threaten that cooperation.
The schism has exacerbated tension between the White House and the most powerful American pro-Israel group,
the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, with which sitting presidents have traditionally been in lock step.
Aipac, which like Mr. Netanyahu is vehemently opposed to the emerging nuclear agreement with Iran, on Friday said
the onus was on the White House to repair the breach.
“Unfortunately, administration spokespersons rebuffed the prime minister’s efforts to improve the understandings
between Israel and the U.S.,” the group said in a statement.
“In contrast to their comments,” the statement continued, “we urge the administration to further strengthen ties with
America’s most reliable and only truly democratic ally in the Middle East. A solid and unwavering relationship
between the U.S. and Israel is in the national security interests of both countries and reflects the values that we both

OBAMA Blasts Netanyahu Yet Again, Saying: His Comments
“Erode the Name of Democracy”
Barack Obama continued to attack the Jewish leader in a video that aired today saying Netanyahu’s previous
comments “erode the name of democracy.”
This comes from the same man who passed amnesty by executive
order and who forces poverty nuns to pay for birth control.
The Examiner reported:

President Obama issued tough criticism of Benjamin Netanyahu, saying in an interview published
Saturday that the Israeli prime minister’s campaign rhetoric “starts to erode the name of democracy.”
Obama also expressed pessimism about Israel’s willingness to recognize a Palestinian state in the
interview with the Huffington Post, and about the possibility of reaching a deal to prevent Iran from
obtaining nuclear weapons.
Following Netanyahu’s pre-election statement that there would be no Palestinian state if he were reelected, Obama “indicated to him that given his statements prior to the election, it is going to be hard
to find a path” forward on negotiations, Obama said.
Obama also said that he took issue with Netanyahu’s campaign trail warning that Israeli Arabs were
headed to the polls “in droves.” The White House “indicated that that kind of rhetoric was contrary to
what is the best of Israel’s traditions,” Obama said.
Ann Coulter told FOX and Friends Saturday: “Obama is treating Netanyahu like he’s a Republican .”

Obama Scolds Netanyahu: 'Hard to Find a Path' to Work Together
President Obama, who waited days to telephone Benjamin Netanyahu to congratulate him on his re-election, scolded
the Israeli prime minister on Saturday, saying "it is going to be hard to find a path" to work together.
In an interview with the liberal Huffington Post website, the president refused to take Netanyahu at his word that he
wants a two-state solution in the Middle East.
"We take him at his word when he said that it wouldn't happen during his prime ministership, and so that's why we've
got to evaluate what other options are available to make sure that we don't see a chaotic situation in the region," he
Well, I had a chance to speak to Prime Minister Netanyahu yesterday, congratulated his party on his
victory. I did indicate to him that we continue to believe that a two-state solution is the only way for the
long-term security of Israel, if it wants to stay both a Jewish state and democratic. And I indicated to
him that given his statements prior to the election, it is going to be hard to find a path where people are
seriously believing that negotiations are possible.
So we’re evaluating what’s taking place. I think Prime Minister Netanyahu still has to form a
government; we’ll be in close consultation with them. We're going to make sure, regardless of
disagreements we have on policy, that our military and intelligence cooperation to keep the Israeli
people safe continues and that cooperation also helps the American people stay safe.
But we are going to continue to insist that, from our point of view, the status quo is unsustainable. And
that while taking into complete account Israel's security, we can't just in perpetuity maintain the status
quo, expand settlements. That's not a recipe for stability in the region.
The reporter asked the president about his reaction to Netanyahu's Election Day warning about Arab voters heading
to the polls "in droves," which some U.S. pundits called racist.
We indicated that that kind of rhetoric was contrary to what is the best of Israel's traditions. That
although Israel was founded based on the historic Jewish homeland and the need to have a Jewish
homeland, Israeli democracy has been premised on everybody in the country being treated equally
and fairly. And I think that that is what's best about Israeli democracy. If that is lost, then I think that not
only does it give ammunition to folks who don't believe in a Jewish state, but it also I think starts to
erode the meaning of democracy in the country.
Obama said he didn't think Netanyahu's re-election -- which his administration secretly fought against
-- will have any effect on his "ability to sell any Iranian nuclear agreement to both the American public
and this Congress?
I don't think it will have a significant impact. Obviously there's significant skepticism in Israel generally
about Iran. And understandably. Iran has made vile comments, anti-Semitic comments, comments
about the destruction of Israel. It is precisely for that reason that even before I became president, I
said Iran could not have a nuclear weapon.
What is going to have an effect on whether we get a deal done is, number one, is Iran prepared to
show, to prove to the world that it is not developing a nuclear weapon, and can we verify that in an
intrusive, consistent way.
And frankly, they have not yet made the kind of concessions that are I think going to be needed for a
final deal to get done. But they have moved, and so there's the possibility.
The other thing is going to be me being able to show not just the American people or the Israeli people
but the world that, in fact, we have mechanisms in place that will prevent Iran from having a nuclear
weapon. And that the deal that is made not only is verifiable, but it also makes it much less likely that
Iran is able to break out than if we have no deal at all. And that's an argument that we are going to
have to make, if we have a deal. But we've still got some more to do.
While there have been reports that there is a draft deal circulating, Obama said it's not over till it's over.
There is no deal until everything is worked out. And I think that it's premature to suggest that there is a
draft out there. What is true is that there has been movement from the Iranian side. We are consulting
with the P5+1.
Negotiations have broken for a week because of the Nowruz holidays inside of Iran, which gives time
for us to make sure that everybody within the P5+1 is comfortable with the current positions that are
being taken. It allows them to consult. We'll be back in a week. Our goal though is to get this done in a
matter of weeks, not months.
Obama Pretends '67 Borders Policy Triggered By Netanyahu Win
President Obama and the Obama Administration, using the opportunity presented by the reelection of Israeli Prime
Minister to advance Obama’s apparent goal of destroying the Jewish state, are now saying that they might favor
returning Israel to the suicidal pre-1967 borders. Pretending that this policy represents a shift because of Netanyahu’s
statements decrying a Palestinian state that could become a military threat to Israel, Obama and his minions,
according to the New York Times, would consider a UN Security Council resolution "embodying the principles of a
two-state solution that would include Israel’s 1967 borders with Palestine and mutually agreed swaps of territory."
To put it baldly, Obama is lying when he pretends that this is a new policy for him. As the Times itself reported on May
19, 2011, “A day before the arrival in Washington of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, Mr. Obama
declared that the prevailing borders before the 1967 Arab-Israeli war — adjusted to some degree to account for Israeli
settlements in the West Bank — should be the basis of a deal. While the 1967 borders have long been viewed as the
foundation for a peace agreement, Mr. Obama’s formula of land swaps to compensate for disputed territory created a
new benchmark for a diplomatic solution.”
Obama’s desire to render Israel vulnerable to attack has been evident for some time, as he has denounced
Netanyahu while coddling the nuclear aspirations of the terrorist Iranian regime. In retrospect, Obama’s hypocrisy is
astounding; the same 2011 Times piece quoted him saying of Hamas, “How can one negotiate with a party that has
shown itself unwilling to recognize your right to exist? In the weeks and months to come, Palestinian leaders will have
to provide a credible answer to that question.”
Obama reportedly started secretly negotiating with Hamas at the beginning of 2014; months before Hamas went to
war with Israel; as Fox News reported in June of 2014, during the war between Israel and Hamas, Obama openly
said he would help act in negotiations between the two.
15 Ways To Say I Hate You: How Obama Has Metaphorically
Flipped Bibi The Bird
By Don
Mar 22nd,
Hat/Tip to Newsmax.
“How do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways…”
Well, it’s 15 different reasons that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu can’t stand our President, according to
Newsmax, anyway.
1. In 2010, Obama humiliated Netanyahu when he abruptly terminated a meeting with the prime minister and left
him at the White House while he went to have lunch with vice president Joe Biden. Netanyahu was not invited to join
2. At the same meeting, The White House refused to allow non-official photographers to record it, leading one
observer to remark that Netanyahu was being treated “as if he were an unsavory Third World dictator.”
3. Obama responded unprofessionally when French President Nicolas Sarkozy spoke with him at a G-20 summit
in Cannes. A hot microphone picked up Sarkozy saying, “I cannot bear Netanyahu, he’s a liar,” and Obama
responded: “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often than you.”
4. The Obama administration angered Netanyahu by suggesting the 1967 borders could be the starting line for a
peace deal and creation of a Palestinian state, and Netanyahu fired off an angry call to then-Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton to complain.
5. Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry has lobbied world leaders to support U.S. negotiations to create a
Palestinian state, distressing Netanyahu to the point that Haaretz reported: “Bibi hates Kerry and won’t listen to him.”
Netanyahu has ruled out creation of a Palestinian state.
6. The Obama administration has issued sharp denunciations of Netanyahu’s plans for new construction in East
Jerusalem and the West Bank.
7. Obama did not enthusiastically support Israel’s war in Gaza to halt terror attacks emanating from the Hamascontrolled enclave.
8. When Netanyahu traveled to the U.S. for an address at the United Nations in September 2012, the White House
said Obama would not meet with him, claiming “the president’s schedule will not permit that.”
9. Obama also snubbed Netanyahu when he recently came to Washington to deliver a speech before Congress
warning about administration efforts to forge a deal on Iran’s nuclear program, a deal Netanyahu maintains would
guarantee a nuclear-armed Iran. Obama termed the address “nothing new.”
10. In March 2014, Obama pressed Netanyahu to accept a peace deal with the Palestinians as the deadline
neared for both sides to sign on to a U.S.-brokered framework for a peace accord. If Netanyahu wasn’t happy with the
solution being suggested, Obama said, “he needs to articulate an alternative approach,” a remark that was reportedly
not appreciated by the prime minister.
11. In the wake of Netanyahu’s recent election victory, Obama’s Chief of Staff Denis McDonough scheduled a
speech to J Street, an Israel advocacy group that often criticizes the Israeli government and especially Netanyahu.
12. The Obama administration’s State Department allegedly gave taxpayer-funded grants to an American
nonprofit seeking to defeat Netanyahu in the recent election, triggering a probe by a U.S. Senate committee.
13. Netanyahu hinted at possible meddling by the administration when he said a coalition seeking to oust him is
funded by “foreign donors” who are also encouraging a high voter turnout among Israel’s Arab and left-wing voters.
Netanyahu commented about “Arab voters coming out in droves.”
14. Obama disturbed the Israeli leadership when he hosted a Feb. 24 meeting with the Emir of Qatar, which has
sent hundreds of millions of dollars to Gaza since Hamas took control there in 2007, and has been accused of
supporting terrorists.
15. The White House signaled Wednesday that it could reverse its decades-old policy of using its veto in the U.N.
Security Council to protect Israel, and refuse to veto resolutions related to the Palestinians, in particular those
condemning the Jewish state’s settlement policy in Palestinian territory.

If you want to understand the Israeli political landscape, you must read this. It's a fantastic summary:
"Since the left lost control of Israel, it has been hell-bent on destroying it. The PLO deal was one
step in a process meant to destroy Israel and return to the bi-national state that Ahdut HaAvodah, the
ancestor of the Labor Party, and Ben Gurion had been flirting with in the twenties and thirties."
"The Two-State Solution was always meant to end in a One-State Solution."
"The Israeli left has despaired of turning the country into the utopia that it wanted. There are still
plenty of bureaucrats and union monopolies, but children are raised by their parents and most of them
are born to the types of Jews that they hate."
Israel’s Leftist Losers
March 19, 2015 by Daniel Greenfield 123 Comments
For thousands of years the Jews dreamed of reclaiming their country. The left had another dream.
It dreamed of a country run by bureaucrats that worked only three days a week. It dreamed of unions
running monopolies that worked whenever they liked and charged whatever they wanted. It dreamed
of children raised on collective farms without parents and of government as a Socialist café debate.
Most of all it dreamed of a country without conservatives. It still hasn’t gotten that wish.
Netanyahu’s victory hit hardest in Tel Aviv where, as Haaretz, the paper of the left, reports, “Leftist,
secular Tel Aviv went to sleep last night cautiously optimistic only to wake up this morning in a state of
utter and absolute devastation.”
Tel Aviv is ground zero for any Iranian nuclear attack. Its population density makes it an obvious
target and Iran threatened it just last month. A nuclear strike on Tel Aviv would not only kill a lot of
Israelis, it would also wipe out the country’s left.
Haifa and Tel Aviv are the only major cities in Israel that the left won in this election. And it was a
close thing in traditionally “Red Haifa” whose union dockworkers these days are Middle Eastern Jews
who vote right. The left took a quarter of the vote in Haifa to a fifth for Netanyahu’s conservative Likud
In Tel Aviv however, the Labor coalition and Meretz, the two major leftist parties, took nearly half of
the vote. Amos Oz’s daughter told Haaretz that everyone in the left had been upbeat because
everyone they knew was voting for the left. Now the leftist elite is once again forced to come to terms
with the tragedy that much of the country doesn’t want to hand over land to terrorists, live on a
communal farm or turn over the country to Marc Rich’s lawyer and his American backers who make
Slim-Fast and KIND bars.
There are however days when they think Israel might be better off without certain parts of Tel Aviv.
The left doesn’t want a country. It wants a Berkeley food co-op. It wants a city with some ugly
modernist architecture. It wants a campus with courses on media studies and gender in geography. It
wants an arcade where unwashed lefties can tunelessly strum John Lennon songs on their vintage
guitars. It wants cafes with Russian Futurist prints on the walls. It wants to be about excited about
political change.
Its only use for Israel was as a utopian theme park. Its allegiance was not to Jewish history or
democracy, but to its crackpot leftist fantasies. Now its fantasies are dead and it wants to kill Israel.
The left spitefully alienated every immigrant group from Holocaust survivors to Middle Eastern Jews to
Russian Jews. It also had slurs for each of them. The Holocaust survivors were ‘Sabon’ (soap) and
the Middle Eastern Jewish refugees were ‘Chakhchakhim’. That particular slur at an election rally cost
Peres and Labor the 1981 election. Another slur at an election rally now hurt the left and boosted
But if you ask the left why it lost, it will blame Israeli racism.
The Israeli left slurred Middle Eastern Jews as “primitives” and used them as cheap labor to maintain
the Kibbutz collectivist lifestyle until they stood up for themselves and the experiment in ‘equality’
ended. It slurred Russian immigrants as “prostitutes”, Settlers in ’67 Israel as “bloodsuckers” and
Ultra-Orthodox as “parasites”.
Netanyahu’s likely coalition will lean heavily on parties that draw their support from Middle Eastern
Jews, Settlers, Russian Jews and the Ultra-Orthodox.
These groups are also known as the majority of the country. That’s why the left lost. Again.
The left wants its clubhouse back and it can’t get it back. Demographics and immigration turned the
ideal Israeli leftist, a wealthy secular Ashkenazi urbanite from an important family, into a minority. The
only reason the left still exists is because its phantom Apartheid State of media outlets, courts and
academics still maintains a death grip on the system.
The other reason that the Israeli left exists is that its malicious oppression of new immigrants
splintered them into warring groups, much as the Democratic Party’s Tammany Hall did in the United
States. The left couldn’t own them, but it did set them against each other in order to maintain a
dysfunctional political system in which the strongest form of central authority comes from an unelected
The left hasn’t managed to conquer Israel, but it has succeeded in dividing it. Every new group of
immigrants has been indoctrinated, not with allegiance to the left (that was a lost cause early on) but
with resentment of each other. The Russian Jews are told that they live badly because of the UltraOrthodox Jews. The Middle Eastern Jews are told that they live badly because of the Russian Jews.
The Ultra-Orthodox are told that they live badly because of the Settlers. There’s plenty of overlap
between these groups, but the tactic still works well enough for the left to stay in the game.
The real Apartheid State in Israel is this Deep State of the left. It’s the one you see on display when
former heads of the Mossad and Shabak denounce Israel and Netanyahu. It’s in the phony media
polls and exit polls that were skewed in favor of the left. It’s in the candidacy of a cretin like Herzog
with his high voice and his old guard last name promising to do whatever Obama and the left tell him
to do.
The left tried to sell Herzog, the errand boy for international leftist criminals like Marc Rich and Octav
Botnar, as the future of Israel. The public never bought it.
The left has no leadership. It has nothing to offer. It has no reason to exist except malice and spite.
Since the left lost control of Israel, it has been hell-bent on destroying it. The PLO deal was one step
in a process meant to destroy Israel and return to the bi-national state that Ahdut HaAvodah, the
ancestor of the Labor Party, and Ben Gurion had been flirting with in the twenties and thirties.
The Two-State Solution was always meant to end in a One-State Solution.
The Israeli left has despaired of turning the country into the utopia that it wanted. There are still plenty
of bureaucrats and union monopolies, but children are raised by their parents and most of them are
born to the types of Jews that they hate.
The more philosophical members of the left see the “peace process” that they illegally initiated and
passed as a cleanup operation that removes the failed experiment of Israel to make way for the
Muslim “decolonization/ethnic cleansing” of Israel. They usually have homes in France and tenure in
the US.
And the rest of the Jewish population that doesn’t have homes in France is meant to become Sabon.
The remainder had decided that the only hope for the leftist dream is to unite with their Socialist
comrades in the PLO and build a bi-national state using Muslim demographics to counter the
demographic growth of Middle Eastern and Ultra-Orthodox Jews. Israel will become Lebanon. The
Jews will become the Lebanese Christian minority in this utopian experiment and it doesn’t matter if
they get killed as long as some of them go on living in pricey neighborhoods and strumming guitars in
Tel Aviv.
It would be nice to think that the Israeli left was transformed into this twisted thing by the loss of its
utopian dreams, but it was always like this. It was never patriotic. It was forced to become patriotic by
the Muslim rejection of all its efforts at co-existence. It was never Zionist. Zionism was forced on it by
the anti-Semitism of its Russian Socialist colleagues. It never wanted to be Jewish. It was forced to
Muslim hate turned the Israeli left into the unwilling caretaker of a Jewish State. G-d kept Israel alive
despite the left’s incompetence, its treasons and its slavish instinct for appeasement.
Today the left can no longer even pretend that it has a vision. All it can do is howl about peace and
justice and how the Middle Eastern Jewish Schorim (blacks) and the Ultra-Orthodox Schorim (also
blacks, for their hats) and the Russians destroyed ‘their’ country.
Then it can go back to its French villas and have its bi-national Muslim state there.
Israel: Beware of Obama
By Michael
Modal Trigger
First he comes for the banks and health care, uses the IRS to go after critics, politicizes the Justice Department, spies
on journalists, tries to curb religious freedom, slashes the military, throws open the borders, doubles the debt and
nationalizes the Internet.
He lies to the public, ignores the Constitution, inflames race relations and urges Latinos to punish Republican
“enemies.” He abandons our allies, appeases tyrants, coddles adversaries and uses the Crusades as an excuse for
inaction as Islamist terrorists slaughter their way across the Mideast.
Now he’s coming for Israel.
Barack Obama’s promise to transform America was too modest. He is transforming the whole world before our eyes.
Do you see it yet?
Against the backdrop of the tsunami of trouble he has unleashed, Obama’s pledge to “reassess” America’s
relationship with Israel cannot be taken lightly. Already paving the way for an Iranian nuke, he is hinting he’ll also let
the other anti-Semites at Turtle Bay have their way. That could mean American support for punitive Security Council
resolutions or for Palestinian statehood initiatives. It could mean both, or something worse.
Whatever form the punishment takes, it will aim to teach Bibi Netanyahu never again to upstage him. And to teach
Israeli voters never again to elect somebody Obama doesn’t like.
Apologists and wishful thinkers, including some Jews, insist Obama realizes that the special relationship between
Israel and the United States must prevail and that allowing too much daylight between friends will encourage enemies.
Those people are slow learners, or, more dangerously, deny-ists.
If Obama’s six years in office teach us anything, it is that he is impervious to appeals to good sense. Quite the
contrary. Even respectful suggestions from supporters that he behave in the traditions of American presidents fill him
with angry determination to do it his way.
For Israel, the consequences will be intended. Those who make excuses for Obama’s policy failures — naive, bad
advice, bad luck — have not come to grips with his dark impulses and deep-seated rage.
His visceral dislike for Netanyahu is genuine, but also serves as a convenient fig leaf for his visceral dislike of Israel.
The fact that it’s personal with Netanyahu doesn’t explain six years of trying to bully Israelis into signing a suicide pact
with Muslims bent on destroying them. Netanyahu’s only sin is that he puts his nation’s security first and refuses to
knuckle under to Obama’s endless demands for unilateral concessions.
That refusal is now the excuse to act against Israel. Consider that, for all the upheaval around the world, the president
rarely has a cross word for, let alone an open dispute with, any other foreign leader. He calls Great Britain’s David
Cameron “bro” and praised Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood president, Mohammed Morsi, who had called Zionists, “the
descendants of apes and pigs.”
Obama asked Vladimir Putin for patience, promising “more flexibility” after the 2012 election, a genuflection that
earned him Russian aggression. His Asian pivot was a head fake, and China is exploiting the vacuum. None of those
leaders has gotten the Netanyahu treatment, which included his being forced to use the White House back door on
one trip, and the cold shoulder on another.
It is a clear and glaring double standard.
Most troubling is Obama’s bended-knee deference to Iran’s Supreme Leader, which has been repaid with “Death to
America” and “Death to Israel” demonstrations in Tehran and expanded Iranian military action in other countries.
The courtship reached the height of absurdity last week, when Obama wished Iranians a happy Persian new year by
equating Republican critics of his nuclear deal with the resistance of theocratic hard-liners, saying both “oppose a
diplomatic solution.” That is a damnable slur given that a top American military official estimates that Iranian weapons,
proxies and trainers killed 1,500 US soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Who in their right mind would trust such an evil
regime with a nuke?
Yet Netanyahu, the leader of our only reliable ally in the region, is repeatedly singled out for abuse. He alone is the
target of an orchestrated attempt to defeat him at the polls, with Obama political operatives, funded in part by
American taxpayers, working to elect his opponent.
They failed and Netanyahu prevailed because Israelis see him as their best bet to protect them. Their choice was
wise, but they better buckle up because it’s Israel’s turn to face the wrath of Obama.
It’s just like old crimes
Reader Stephen Shapiro agrees that the bad old days of “Taxi Driver” are coming back to Gotham. “Only last night, my
wife noted the same thing when walking up Broadway from the Theater District,” he writes. “The sidewalks were
packed with illegal sellers of cheap trinkets and maybe stolen goods. Like it was decades ago.”
Step right up, NYers
P.T. Barnum is credited with saying, “There’s a sucker born every minute,” but the sentiment applies better to Albany
than the circus. After all, who are the greater fools: ticket buyers who believe in sword swallowers and fire-eaters, or
taxpayers who believe Gov. Cuomo and legislators will clean up corruption?
School vow is more blah-blah-blasio
There he goes again. Mayor de Blasio is making promises that make no sense and saying things he can’t possibly
Putzie is so desperate to fend off state changes to his control of city schools that he is promising to apply crimecontrol techniques to educrats. “We’re going to hold every one of the principals to the same kinds of standards that our
precinct commanders are held to via CompStat,” he declared.
That’s crazy talk for two reasons.
First, he and Chancellor Carmen Fariña say repeatedly they don’t like mainstream educational standards, especially a
heavy use of standardized tests for evaluating students and teachers. Throw in their cutback of suspensions for
disruptive students and their willful expansion of union power, and it’s hard to see on what basis they will measure
principals’ performance.
Second, his reference to the Police Department as the gold standard of accountability would be valid — if de Blasio
weren’t mayor. He is taking away so many enforcement tools from the NYPD that shootings and murder are soaring
and evidence mounts that cops are under orders to ignore many quality-of-life crimes. With cops increasingly reduced
to responding to crimes already committed, it is unclear what standards de Blasio is using to measure police
I Sure Don't Envy Bibi Netanyahu!
Even though the Israelis voters spoke pretty clearly and do prefer Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for another
term of office, giving his Likud Party many more seats than they gave Herzog-Livni's, assembling a coalition won't be
easy for him. Besides Naftali Bennett who has made it clear that he firmly supports Netanyahu and hasn't leaked any
demands, all of the other party leaders are making it clear that they aren't in Bibi's pocket and expect a hefty
payment, meaning important cabinet position for them and most of their MK's.
Just a couple of years ago, Netanyahu invited Avigdor Lieberman's party, Yisrael Beitenu to run with Likud on a joint
list, which ended up to the benefit of Lieberman and detriment to Likud. This year, on its own, Yisrael Beitenu has lost
strength, but it still has the power to make or break a coalition. Lieberman is playing hard to get, insisting that
although he's leading one one of the smallest parties in Knesset, he still deserves a "senior position."
All during the campaign my feeling was that the Likud could not count on former Likudnik Kahlon at all in terms of
joining the coalition. He'd be like the classic "woman scorned," even though he was the one who left the ship. And
now the rumor is that he's going to play Bennett's old role dragging in Lapid as a "third and very unwanted wheel" as
a condition for his joining a Likud government.
"According to Israeli television, Kahlon will demand that Netanyahu also invite his rival and erstwhile
finance minister Yair Lapid into the government." (Jerusalem Post)
Yair Lapid's total lack of loyalty and discipline was one of the reasons Netanyahu had to declare new elections. And it
was also Lapid's rabidly anti-Chareidi conditions that Bibi accepted which seriously damaged Likud's relationship
with the Chareidi parties. And Netanyahu needs those MKs to form a coalition.
Nothing here is going to be easy. Voting and counting the votes are long over. The results are clear. The Israeli
electorate does not want a Herzog-Livni government, not even just Herzog. It wants to give Binyamin Netanyahu
another term of office, but the political leaders, MKs elected last week mostly have their own egos as priority, not the
good of the country nor the will of the people.
As I've written before, I predict instability, and I wonder if Netanyahu will succeed in this seemingly impossible task. If
he doesn't, then Herzog will get a chance to form a government coalition. And no matter who finally succeeds I doubt
that the government will last very long. There is also a possible scenario that no coalition will be formed, and we'll be
voting again this coming summer.
And don't forget that the media's rumor mill has been talking of President Ruby Rivlin pushing Netanyahu and Herzog
to come up with a "National Unity Government," like the one that had Shimon Peres and Yitzchak Shamir trading
places in the Prime Minister's office.
What do you think?
Islamic “NO GO” Zones: Already In A U.S. City Near You!
Mirror Images To Europe’s Nightmare…Commentary By
Adina Kutnicki
AS usual, too many refuse to believe that ISLAMIC “NO GO ” zones are already a part of the
U.S. (nightmarish) landscape, refusing to recognize the handwriting on the wall.
ON its face, their “infrastructure” is rooted inside America and it is growing by leaps and
bounds. Unimpeded. Law enforcement has been ordered: stand down!
Federal Bureau of Investigations documents detailing a 22-site network of terrorist training villages
sprawled across the United States. According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about
these facilities for about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department
has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA [Muslims of the Americas]/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a
Foreign Terrorist Organization.”
In other words, the FBI can not act because the President and the Department of Homeland
Security will not classify MOA, with known ties for decades to Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a Foreign
Terrorist Organization despite a mountain of evidence.
CONSIDER: what exactly are ISLAMIC compounds, if not “NO GO” zones? In this regard, start
your American ISLAMIC journey here: but
once you regain your equilibrium, well, continue…
BASTARD leadership…
HOW many know that ISLAMIC war camps – that’s really what they amount to – on U.S. soil
have been ongoing for years and they were exposed, in detail, from several non mainstream
sites? Hang on…
READERS may recall one of the initial commentaries at this site, back in mid 2012. If not, here
is a recap:
Jamat ul Fuqra are awash in infidel blood. Most infamously, they are the head choppers of
Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. They are particularly fond of beheadings. Say what?
Too close for many fellow New Yorkers (this investigative journalist’s home state) comfort, the group
receives some of their paramilitary training at their Islamberg compound in New York State. Not to
get too specific – as part of a “research” project in 2006 – I accompanied a trusted contact to
the outskirts of the compound, knowing full well that this was as far as we would get. No
matter. We came, we saw, we went…..hearing constant sounds of gun popping, and
intermittent shouts of “allahu akbar” – god is great – in broad daylight !! Roaming guards
dressed in (Islamic) combat fatigues, with watch towers on each side, were clearly visible.
Normal folks surely are wondering – how is it possible that terror compounds can exist in the land of
the free, the home of the brave? What is going on here?
To add insult, to grievous (US & Canadian) injury, Islamberg is one of 35 ! jihadi compounds in the
US. About half a dozen (which are known) exist in places such as Charlotte County in central Virginia,
Hancock, New York, and other rural confines all over the US…..
PLACING an additional nail in America’s coffin – as well as putting paid to the lie that “NO GO”
zones were a figment of certain folks hallucinations – well respected investigators duly
reported, yet they were derided as hysterics and worse. No matter.
“Nearly four years after our initial investigative report about a domestic terrorist group was
made public, we can provide readers the first in a series of exclusive comprehensive updates
about Jamaat ul Fuqra’s presence and activities in the U.S. and Canada. While much has been
written about this terrorist group and their ‘training compounds,’ the cold, hard facts are far
more disturbing than the Internet folklore they attract.”
Readers of Canada Free Press and the Northeast East Intelligence Network will recall our initial
report published in February 2006 about Jamaat ul Fuqra, an Islamic terrorist group operating under
the guise of legitimacy by adopting benign sounding identities such as the International Quranic Open
University and the Muslims of the Americas. The reality is that Jamaat ul Fuqra is a fully
operational Islamic terrorist organization firmly embedded throughout the U.S. and
Canada and led by top Pakistani terror leader Shiek Mubarek Ali Gilani of Lahore, Pakistan. Gilani is
most well known for his role in the death of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, a claim denied
by Gilani and the subject of an ongoing dispute among terrorism investigators.
Federal investigators confirmed that Jamat ul Fuqra members have been responsible for at least a
dozen murders, 17 bombings and fire bombings, and several assassinations and attempted
assassinations. The perpetrators of those terrorist acts received their paramilitary training at the
Islamberg compound in New York State. In the weeks preceding the 9/11 attacks, nearby
residents to the Islamic compound witnessed male residents of the compound, dressed in
military type fatigues, running in military style formation on the rural road adjacent to the
Muslim owned property. Other residents heard the sounds of gunfire and small explosions coming
from the depths of the expansive property.
In our 2006 report, the public was informed of specific activities of this terrorist organization that were
taking place on our own soil. Such activities included paramilitary training such as live-fire weapons
training, using an elementary school bus as a practice target for weapons and bomb training,
repelling, and various forms of urban assault training. It is critically important to understand that our
report was a product of a lengthy investigation performed by skilled, veteran investigators with
years of field experience in covert surveillance and investigative techniques.
To state that the publication of our investigative findings in 2006 report caused a stir domestically and
even internationally would be quite an understatement. Our report was met by a scathing, if
not delusional and inherently threatening response by Gilani himself, who claims that our report
was the product of a Zionist conspiracy to fuel a holy war by Jews and Christians against Muslims.
The report was printed and shown to Jamaat ul Fuqra leaders, who called it a product of “Kosher
kids,” and obviously denied every aspect of the report…..
OH dear…as always, the “Joos” had a hand in this and that…
YET, why confine ourselves to east coast war compounds, let’s segue to America’s
heartland…the southwest too:
UPDATE:Guerilla training of women at Islamberg, Hancock, N.Y.
YES, a Texas style alert!
EVEN so, the above is a piece of a larger puzzle and it must be recognized for what it is, before
it is too late. In reality, several areas, though not technically “compounds”, are already
ISLAMIZED, the step before actual “NO GO” zones become a done deal. This is one of
ONTO the Euro-style nightmare…
The Swedish police recently released a map of 55 no-go zones, where law enforcement in
effect have ceded control to predominantly immigrant gangs. When I reported it on my blog,
some readers expressed disbelief despite the source being readily available and supporting
every statement made in my post.
Well, now the Swedish ambulance union is demanding military grade protection gear to enter these
no-go zones, since the attacks are growing too frequent and too severe. The list of incidents ranges
from slashed tires and smashed windshields to physical violence with machetes and firearms.
Blinding drivers with green lasers in an attempt to make them crash is another popular pastime in the
no-go zones; this growing sport also frequently afflicts bus drivers, taxis, mailmen, fire trucks and

“We need the paramedics to be prepared when entering these hot zones,” said union leader Henrik
Johansson. “They need riot helmets, bulletproof vests, shin guards and holsterpacks. That’s the
equipment needed to work in this environment. Of course, they also [need to be] equipped with gas
“So they’ll look like riot police?” The reporter asked.
“No, I’d say military grade gear is called for.”
Attacking a person trying to save someone’s life is beyond morally repulsive. But what makes it
especially stupid is that since these ghettos are primarily populated by immigrants, the thugs are
ambushing ambulances on their way to save what might well be a relative.
But as for the doubters who claimed it couldn’t possibly be this bad in Sweden; if you don’t believe an
official report issued by the national police authority, will you at least listen to the people who have to
work in these areas?
Of course, you’re welcome to take an unarmed evening stroll through one of the no-go zones
whenever you feel like proving them wrong. Good luck…..
NOW that Sweden is in their vise-grip, why stop there…onto France…
Turkish Official: To End Extremism, Listen To Marie Harf, Give
Muslims Opportunity And Jobs…
Only way to stop the extremism is with extermination of the terrorists.
A Turkish government official says to eliminate a root cause of Islamic extremism, European countries
must give their Muslim residents greater opportunities and more reasons for hope.
Volkan Bozkir, Turkey’s minister for European affairs, said Saturday that many Muslims living in
Europe “now feel they are the other.”
Bozkir called that the leading reason for Islamic radicalization and terrorism. He said European
leaders should take action so their Muslim populations will stop feeling they are “outside the circle.”
The Turkish official spoke at a panel discussion in Brussels sponsored by the German Marshall Fund
on what should be done to counter the wave of Islamic extremism and terrorism affecting European
nations and other countries.
One Nation Under Allah ... and More
Friday, March 20, 2015
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author : The latest example of the multicultural virus infecting our schools just
erupted at Pine Bush High School in Pine Bush, New York. The school, to its credit, begins the day with the
recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance over the school intercom.
Recently, school administrators decided they could show their really cool progressive commitment to diversity by
directing that the Pledge be recited in Arabic -- including "one nation under Allah" instead of "under God."
The local community, including veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and many students were not amused.
The school has since apologized. Apparently they thought "under God" and "under Allah" were
synonymous. They are not.
The fact is there are many nations in the world that are "under Allah," and they generally are not pleasant places
for women, minorities, Christians and Jews -- or many Muslims for that matter.
There is only one country in the world built on the idea that liberty comes from God, the God of the Bible. That
nation is the United States of America. And that central idea of our founding is a reason why we have been a force
for good around the world and a haven for the world's persecuted.
Sadly, given the growing jihadist wave around the world and the likelihood of a nuclear-armed Iran, young men and
women like those at Pine Bush High School may be called upon in the years ahead to go off to battle those who
truly intend to make one world under Allah.
Obama Encourages Iran's Youth
President Obama is once again reaching out to Millennials -- Iran's Millennial generation. In a video message
wishing Iranians a happy new year, the New York Times reports that Obama is encouraging Iran's youth "to
pressure their leaders to accept the [nuclear] deal on the table."
I couldn't help but recall a little history here. The last time the youth of Iran in a meaningful way pressured their
government was in 2009. Hundreds of thousands of young Iranians took to the streets protesting corruption and a
rigged election and demanding an end to the Islamic regime.
If they had been successful, there probably would be a lot less worry today about that same regime building a
nuclear arsenal. But far from encouraging Iran's youth then, Obama abandoned the demonstrators, and today the
Islamic Republic is wreaking havoc across the Middle East.
Obama's Contempt
Sadly, even in this new year's greeting, Obama could not resist criticizing Americans who disagree with his bad
nuclear deal. He said: "There are people, in both our countries and beyond, who oppose a diplomatic resolution."
Obama is referring to conservatives like Senator Tom Cotton and the 46 senators who signed his letter. He is
referring to the millions of Americans who don't trust that he will get a deal that stops Iran's nuclear program. (We
have seen this movie before -- the last Democrat administration gave us a nuclear North Korea.)
The mullahs of Iran don't want a deal if it in any way limits their ability to develop nuclear weapons with which they
could annihilate Israel and threaten the United States.
Conservatives and a significant number of pro-Israel Democrats are trying to protect the country from a weak deal
they believe will enable the mullahs to develop nuclear weapons.
Yet Obama claims these diametrically opposite points of view are somehow equivalent. Moreover, his statement is
simply not true.
There is no one I know of who opposes a tough, verifiable deal. But few outside the cloistered confines of the
Obama White House believe this deal is tough or verifiable. History gives us little reason to trust the tyrants in
Tehran, the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism.
He then goes on to say, "Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has issued a fatwa against the development
of nuclear weapons."
He can't possibly believe that. If he does believe it, why have we wasted the last two years on these negotiations?
If the ayatollah's intentions are purely innocent, then why are the Iranians being so uncooperative -- burying their
centrifuges underground and in mountains, refusing to grant international inspectors access to Iranian scientists
and nuclear sites? In fact, there is no such fatwa and if there were it wouldn't be worth the paper it was written on.
It is hard to come up with words to describe the foreign policy this administration has implemented and
the damage that will last for years when and if we can try to clean it up.

Bad News For The Islamic Tribunal In Texas, Muslims Furious
There’s only room for one governing law in the United states, we will have no side show from the Islamist
who want Shari’a. If you ant Shari’a then pack your bags and join ISIS!
(Mad World) The first Islamic Sharia Court in the U.S. just got some very bad news, and Muslims are not happy.
In a close 5-4 vote, the city of Irving ruled to back the Texas state bill banning foreign law from the state. It basically
would slam the door in their faces, preventing them from spreading Sharia throughout the country. Now they are
accusing the city council of unfairly being targeted.
All four of the “voluntary” court’s lawyers were unlicensed in the state of Texas, a third degree felony.Mayor Beth Van
Duyne received several phone calls on the matter. It seems that the Islamic Tribunal not only was unlicensed, but
they failed to notify the city of their illegal court being operated in city limits. She promised to get to the bottom of it,
and she did.
By their own website’s admission, if U.S. law conflicts with Sharia law, “we follow Sharia law.” It also openly
admitted separate rules for men and women in their proceedings, discriminating and humiliating women which is
against the U.S. Constitution. The Islamic Tribunal also openly declared that they hope will “set a precedence that will
be emulated and duplicated throughout the country.”
The more the mayor looked into it, the more it was apparent that they were attempting to establish a foothold using
her city. She made a public Facebook post stating that she would back the new Texas law. She states that it was
apparent that Zia Sheikh, imam at the Islamic Center of Irving, and the other Imams were “bypassing American
courts” to make rulings under Sharia. Sheikh demanded an apology and wanted her Facebook post removed, which
stated she would “fight with every fiber of my being” if the group was violating basic rights.
Sheikh says he just “asked her to clarify a statement … which seemed very Islamophobic.”
“She flat-out refused,” he said. “She said, ‘My statement wasn’t inflammatory in any way, shape or
form.’” (Dallas Morning News)
Her office then asked for them to support the American Laws for American Courts bill and to abide by the Constitution.
Sheikh instead flew off the handle.
“We don’t care about the bill,” Sheikh said. “It’s not going to affect us in any way, shape or form. The
bottom line is the foundation of this bill is anti-Islamic.” (Dallas Morning News)
The meeting was filled by Muslims from the Council for American-Islamic Relations, a known terrorist organization.
They even tried to paint the vote as Islamaphobia and bigotry.
“This continues efforts by elected officials who seek to score points with their voting base by
demonizing Muslims,” Alia Salem, who directs the North Texas chapter of the Council on AmericanIslamic Relations, told the City Council before Thursday’s vote. She said it had a choice between
“diversity” and “hatred, fear and bigotry.” (Dallas Morning News)
The state bill doesn’t even mention Muslims or Islam. It states no specific foreign law. There isn’t even a mention of
Sharia. In the end, four Irving council members voted to oppose supporting the Texas bill — John Danish, Allan
Meagher, Joe Putnam and Dennis Webb. Danish, a Muslim council member, got up and addressed the crowd of
mainly Muslims before casting his no vote. READ MORE…

The Jade Helm 15 Drill is a Martial Law, Civil War and “Red List”
Extraction Drill
By Dave
March 19,
What does “Master the human domain” mean? Is it a euphemism for the complete subjugation of the civilian
population of the United States?
From July 15th to September 15th, 2015, the U.S. Army Special Operations Command is conducting a massive
military drill in an area covering the entire American Southwest. At first glance, I thought this drill was a response to
the massive military drills being conducted by Russia. I wrongly assumed that Jade Helm 15 was a drill designed to
protect the Southwest from an invasion by Russian-backed Latin American military forces (i.e. Red Dawn). However,
after reading the operational plan of Jade Helm, it is clear that this drill is about the brutal martial law subjugation of
the people of Texas, Utah and Southern California who have risen up against some unspecified tyranny. Further, this
drill is also about martial law being used as a preventative measure in states which “might” lean towards civil war
against the United States government (i.e. California, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico).
The operational elements and impact of Jade Helm 15 cannot be considered in isolation. A careful analysis reveals
how this drill is connected to Army policies associated with the confinement of detainees in what is commonly called
FEMA camps! This drill is undoubtedly the most frightening thing to occur on American soil since the Civil War.
Red Dawn or Martial Law Preparations?
Jade Helm’s Purpose Defined
“Jade Helm is a challenging eight-week joint military and Interagency (IA) Unconventional Warfare (UW)
exercise conducted throughout Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado.”
The term, “unconventional warfare (UW)” makes it clear that this exercise is not dealing with a Russian-backed “Red
Dawn” invasion of the Southwestern United States by Russian backed Latin American partners. UW speaks to the
guerrilla warfare (asymmetrical) nature of the anticipated and rehearsed conflict. Subsequently, it can be conclusively
stated that Jade Helm is not preparing for a Red Dawn invasion, rather, they are preparing for a Red, White and Blue
invasion. This is a massive rehearsal for martial law implementation as well as implementing the proverbial and much
rumored Red and Blue List and the “snatch and grab” extractions of key resistance figures from the Independent
Media as well as uncooperative political figures. The various provisions of Jade Helm make it clear just how
dangerous this drill truly is.
Composition of Jade Helm Forces Reveals the True Purpose of the Drills
Thomas Mead, the operations planner for the U.S. Army’s Jade Helm realistic military training has publicly stated that
“We have Army Green Berets, Navy Seals, Marine Special Operations Command, the 82nd Airborne Division and we
also have some of our interagency partners such as the DEA, FBI and the Joint Personnel Recovery
Agency (JPRA) that will be working with us.”
The use of Green Berets, Navy Seals and Special Operations Command forces speaks to the unconventional
composition of the overall makeup of this group. Among the many duties for these three Special Operations groups
include infrastructure raids, assassination of key enemy personnel, reconnaissance, and extraction of key enemy
personnel for detention and/or intelligence gathering. It is the latter duty that has me concerned as there has been
much discussion over the execution of a “Red List” in which key resistance figures would be kidnapped and “dealt
with” in advance of the implementation of martial law. A detailed analysis of the language of Jade Helm has convinced
me that we are looking at the implementation of the “snatch and grab” of key resistance figures to the coming marital
law. My sources have told me that in past drills of this nature, Red List extraction troops are helicoptered in the early
morning hours (e.g. 3AM) land, offload personnel and extract the intended targets, SWAT team style.
In the Jade Helm section entitled “What to Expect“, operation planners state that the public should anticipate
“Increased aircraft in the area at night“, and “May receive noise complaints“. What aircraft would be loud enough
at night to guarantee noise complaints? My vote would be the helicopters. And who would be on these helicopters at
night? What time are snatch and grab activities historically held? And who typically conducts snatch and grab arrests?
The answer to these questions would be the special operation forces, which in martial law, would be the Gestapo
version of the Green Berets, the Navy Seals and Marine Special Forces as they arrive at your home at 3AM.
Role players will be participating in Jade Helm. In fact, the same section goes on to state that “Some individuals (i.e.
civilian insurgents) may conduct suspicious activities…..” What would constitute a “suspicious activity for the
purpose of this drill? Would it consist of pretending to be dragged off to a FEMA camp? Would it be engaging in
simulated insurgency activities associated with guerrilla war strategies? There are so many possibilities and they are
all associated with civilian resistance against a tyrannical force.
Not only is the use of three special operations forces suspicious with regard to Jade Helm, but more notably
is the announced use of JPRA, and this is a frightening event. The Joint Personnel Recovery Agency (JPRA)
maintains a series of training school sites whose subject matter includes:
“Prisoners of war; hostages and DETAINEES (emphasis added); evasion and escape; search
and rescue; Prison survival techniques and experiences; geography and cartography, natural
science, ethnology, and country studies; terrorism; military and Naval science; natural and
emergency medicine.”
The majority of the above definition makes it clear that the intent of JPRA is to teach POW survival skills, at least until
they use the word “detainee”. Please allow me to call your attention to the term “detainee”. In layman’s language, the
term “detainee” simply means someone who is a prisoner of the military occupation force (U.S. government). To the
average person, the use of the term detainee would not raise an eyebrow, but to someone who is tune with the
connotations and denotations of military parlance, the term “detainee” holds specific meaning as evidenced by the
following document which is considered by many to be a blueprint manual, created by the Army, for martial law and
FEMA camp incarceration for political prisoners (e.g. dissenters).
Restricted U.S. Army Internment and Resettlement Operations Manual
May 2, 2012
FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations
In section 1-10 of 3-39.40, “A Civilian detainee is a civilian who is
interned during armed conflict, occupation, or other military operation for
security reasons, for protection, or because he or she committed an
offense against the detaining power.”
In section 3-56 of 3-39.40, the following draconian provisions are
applied to “detainees“:
“Develops PSYOP products that are designed to pacify and
acclimate detainees or DCs to accept U.S. I/R facility authority
and regulations (Author’s note: “PSYOP Products” such as the
use of torture such as water-boarding and sleep deprivation).
Gains the cooperation of detainees to reduce the number of guards needed.
Identifies malcontents, trained agitators, and political leaders within the facility who may try to organize
resistance or create disturbances.
Develops and executes indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes (i.e. brainwashing
of detainees).
Identifies political activists.
Plans and executes a PSYOP program that produces an understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and
The use of the word “detainee” is conspicuous and as the reader can clearly see, it has specific meaning
with regard to a Red List extraction action. In effect, this is the black site for political dissidents. Both Jade
Helm 15 and the FM 3-39.40 are both Army manuals written exclusively on dealing with civilian personnel in
martial law settings. Under the NDAA, designating select citizens as a detainee and holding them indefinitely
is legal under this unconstitutional legislation.
States Participating in Jade Helm
Jade Helm is an eight-week joint military and interagency unconventional warfare exercise that will be conducted in
Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado. A clearer copy of this map is available at this
This map contains the reason as to why we can be certain
that this is not a “Red Dawn” invasion emanating from
Latin America. The unconnected pockets of “hostile states”
is how we know this a martial law/possible civil war map.
The color codes of the states listed in the map presented
above, can be deciphered as follows:
-The Red States of Utah and Texas are listed as
hostile states as is part of Southern California.
These states are not geographically
contiguous. Subsequently, we are looking at
Jade Helm 15 as being the suppression of civil
resistance. The use of the 82nd Airborne is also
suggestive of the fact that the authorities
anticipate that there could be civilian militias
rising up, perhaps in combination with
veterans groups and possibly military units loyal to
the citizens of the United States.
Jade Helm 15 participants
- The Brown State of New Mexico is listed as leaning
towards being hostile.
-The Blue States of California, Nevada and Colorado
are listed as being loyal, “permissive”, to military
authority and martial law.
-The Light Blue State of Arizona is listed as
“unknown”, but leaning toward being friendly.
This reads like a civil war scorecard, similar to the one that President Lincoln must have constructed in 1861 after the
attack upon Ft. Sumter.
The Participation of Certain Interagency Partners Are Very Troubling
Repeated reference is made about the cooperation between the Department of Defense (DoD) and local law
enforcement (LEA) in the Jade Helm document. After reading this document, Program 1033 started to make a lot of
sense. Program 1033 is the militarization of local police with former military equipment (tanks, machine guns, etc.). It
is interesting to note that it was the NDAA legislation that created Program 1033. Obviously, the purpose of this is to
turn the local police into a martial law occupation force.
I am not surprised, but very concerned that DHS, listed as an
interagency partner, is a part of this drill for the following
reasons: I believe a significant number of American military will
NOT fire upon American citizens. Subsequently, this is the
reason for the Russian troop presence in our country and they
will fulfill the role of a martial law occupation force. When I have
previously mentioned this, the Russian media (e.g. Voice of
Russia) has attacked me in the past as if they have something
to hide and evidence of these attacks can be accessed here
and here.
What seems logical and something that should frighten all
“CNN and FOX propagandists have nothing on us.” Kate Zickel a
host for the Voice of Russia.
Americans is to wonder if DHS and the Russian partners will be
a part of Jade Helm 15? Again, I refer to the video production
put together by Sherrie Wilcox in which Russian soldiers have been seen in Tennessee traveling in DHS vehicles as
they entered into Western Kentucky. As this related to Jade Helm and martial law, this is ominous. Russian troops will
fire upon American citizens. Russian troops will extract American citizens from their beds in the middle of the night.
What do you want to bet that Russian troops will be included in Jade Helm 15? Russian troops were included in Grid
EX II and the RIMPAC war games, so why not Jade Helm. Yes, I am talking about treason and it is coming from the
Why would the Drug Enforcement Agency become involved in a martial law operation?This makes no sense unless
you read the connection of the compromised DEA to various Central and South American factions (e.g. the possible
5th column presence of MS-13) that I revealed in July of 2014.
With regard to the thematic components to this article, there is no conclusion, this is only the beginning. It is quite
clear that the Army fully believes, as do their superiors at the Pentagon and at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, that there
is the belief that there is going to be something so catastrophic that an American Civil War II will ensue. The reasons
behind this event(s) are not the focus of this article. However, I think it is a safe bet that it will have to do with the
seizure of bank accounts and retirement accounts. This is a topic that will be explored in a future article. Meanwhile,
Americans in the Southwest need to be concerned that this drill does not go live like so many of these drills seem to
in advance of a false flag drill. Every political activist, “uncooperative” politician and member of the Independent Media
needs to be thinking about where they want to be from July 15 to September 15. It would be best to be where “they”

FEMA 'Death Domes' Popping Up Across Texas Raise Alarm As
Jade Helm 15 Invades Southwestern America With Texas Listed
March 22, 2015
By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or
With Jade Helm 15 coming to Texas, Utah, California
and 4 more southwestern states for 'summer exercises'
between July 15 and September 15 this year, numerous
'FEMA Domes' that are being rushed to completion
across the state of Texas in locations such as
Lumberton, Brownsville, Pancho Maples and Kingsville
are raising alarm with many who view these structures
as potential 'FEMA death domes', used to house
'insurgents' following the red and blue list round-up of
gun owners, Christians and patriotic supporters of America and the US Constitution.
"Despite that many will perceive the domes to be cleverly-disguised “FEMA camps” – which could
potentially be used to shelter destitute populations during emergencies, such as a financial collapse –
they also provide ample opportunities for the feds to weasel into Smalltown, USA and squander its
Described by the New York Times as 'dual-use domes', most of the time filled with cheering high school
basketball fans (think Hillary Clinton's 'fun camps') but, 'come hurricane season', used as a 'nearly impenetrable
shelters from the weather,' the NY Times story tells us that 28 of these buildings are being built and there is
nothing standard at all about them: they'll have double-layer cinder-block walls reinforced by heavy-duty steel
bars and cement piers that plunge 30 feet into the ground. (Difficult to get out of if the goal is keeping a group of
people inside!)
While evidence PROVING that the use of these fully air-conditioned domes will be used to house 'insurgents' is
dubious at best and, according to the mainstream, they'll likely be used as command and control locations during
'emergencies', the urgency with which they are being built and the timing of Jade Helm 15 along with warnings of
imminent economic collapse in America and the ever-lasting memory of the govt 'protecting' the residents of
New Orleans at the Super-death-dome after Hurricane Katrina as shared in the 4th video below are a combined
cause for concern. The 1st video is a new update from Sgt. Joe Biggs and TheAlexJonesChannel about
SOCOM's plans to invade a 'hostile Texas' during Jade Helm 15.
These domes can be inflated quite rapidly as seen in the images and 2nd and 3rd videos below.
Military 'exercises' Jade Helm 15 have been receiving a lot of attention across the internet and features the
states of Texas and Utah as well as a pocket of Southern California as insurgent territories (hostile to the goals
of the NWO?)
You are the terrorist!
There is no subject that I have taken more grief over than the topic of martial law on American soil, especially
when the martial law will utilize foreign troops to enforce the martial law. And if one dares say the Russians will
form the vanguard of the martial law occupation force in America, then surely you must be wearing a tin foil hat.
I have written about martial law, produced martial law documents and have FEMA documents which speak to the
use of Russian troops on our soil, until I am blue in the face. Therefore, employing the wisdom that a “picture is
worth a thousand words”, I am presenting the undeniable images of martial law on American soil. We do not have
to wait for martial law to be declared, it is already here and is only waiting for the final switch to be flipped.

John B. Wells narrating:
I could go on and on, and on, and on, but you get the idea. Martial law has been incrementally imposed upon the
American people. As much as World War III is dominating our attention, this country will be placed under martial
law before any war will commence.
There are those that will say that this is not proof and that martial law is merely a figment of our imagination. To
those people I would say” happy landing”.
Hillary Clinton Calls For 'Re-Education Camps' For Americans As
NWO Moves One Step Closer To A Boot Stamping On A Human
March 21, 2015
By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die
In George Orwell's Dystopian novel classic "1984", political dissidents were forceably incarcerated in forced
labor camps, termed 'joycamps' in 'Newspeak,' as we now witness just the latest sign that America is rapidly
headed in that same totalitarian direction via recent remarks made by Hillary Clinton (heard in 2nd video
below) that American adults should be required to attend 'Fun Camps' where people will "have to come
together and actually listen to each other."
Not lost on many conservatives and those paying attention are the obvious connection between 'fun camp'
and 'joycamp', especially in this Orwellian day and age we now live in, and the warning that has long gone out
that forced reeducation camps will soon be coming to America, and be anything but 'fun'.
With Clinton once again exposing herself as a 'tool' for the 'New World Order' fascists attempting to overthrow
America in order to bring in a world government dictatorship and martial law driven 'police state', the fact that
Americans cheer for her suggestions in the 2nd video shows exactly how far down the road towards
dictatorship America has already come (remember that Germans cheered for Hitler as well!), the only thing
keeping the Republic alive being what still remains of the US Constitution and the 1st and 2nd Amendments.
Does anyone REALLY BELIEVE we'd still have the few remaining liberties we still have left without the 1st and
Alex Jones brings us this news in the 1st video below while you can hear Hillary speaking directly, with the
audience wildly applauding her suggestions, in the 2nd video.
As pointed out in the Tweet below from Rick Tapp, Hillary's 'fun camps' will be brought to us via generous
donations from Algeria, Oman and Saudi Arabia.
Justice Dept orders banks to CALL THE POLICE if you attempt to
withdraw too much of your own cash
March 21,
(ZH) Something stunning took place earlier this week, and it quietly snuck by, unnoticed by anyone as the “all
important” FOMC meeting was looming. That something could have been taken straight out of the playbook of either
Cyprus, or Greece, or the USSR “evil empire”, or all three.
This is how the WSJ explained it:
The U.S. Justice Department’s criminal head said banks may need to go beyond filing suspicious activity reports
when they encounter a risky customer.
“The vast majority of financial institutions file suspicious activity reports when they suspect that an account is
connected to nefarious activity,” said assistant attorney general Leslie Caldwell in a Monday speech, according to
prepared remarks. “But, in appropriate cases, we encourage those institutions to consider whether to take more
action: specifically, to alert law enforcement authorities about the problem.”
The remarks indicate that banks may be expected to do more than just file SARs, a responsibility that itself can be
expensive and time-consuming.
Some banks already have close relationships with law enforcement, said Kevin Rosenberg, chair of Goldberg
Lowenstein & Weatherwax LLP’s government investigation and white collar litigation group. Ms. Caldwell’s remarks
“speak to moving forward in a more collaborative way,” said Mr. Rosenberg.
A tip-off from a bank about a suspicious customer could lead law enforcement to seize funds or start an
investigation, Ms. Caldwell said.
What does this mean, and why is it so critical? Simon Black of International Man explains:
Justice Department rolls out an early form of capital controls in America
Imagine going to the bank to withdraw some cash.
Having some cash on hand is always a prudent strategy, and especially today when more and more bank deposits
are creeping into negative territory, meaning that you have to pay the banks for the privilege that they gamble with
your money.
You tell the teller that you’d like to withdraw $5,000 from your account. She hesitates nervously and wants to know
You try to politely let her know that that’s none of the bank’s business as it’s your money.
The teller disappears for a few minutes, leaving you waiting.
When she returns she tells you that you can collect your money in a few days as they don’t have it on hand at the
Slightly irritated because of the inconvenience, you head home.
But as you pull into your driveway later there’s an unexpected surprise waiting for you: two police officers would like
to have a word with you about your intended withdrawal earlier…
If this sounds far-fetched, think again. Because it could very well become a reality in the Land of the Free if the
Justice Department gets its way.
Earlier this week, a senior official from the Justice Department spoke to a group of bankers about the need for them
to rat out their customers to the police.
What a lot of people don’t realize is that banks are already unpaid government spies.
Federal regulations in the Land of the Free REQUIRE banks to file ‘suspicious activity reports’ or SARs on their
customers. And it’s not optional.
Banks have minimum quotas of SARs they need to fill out and submit to the federal government.
If they don’t file enough SARs, they can be fined. They can lose their banking charter. And yes, bank executives and
directors can even be imprisoned for noncompliance.
This is the nature of the financial system in the Land of the Free.
And chances are, your banker has filled one out on you—they submitted 1.6 MILLION SARs in 2013 alone.
But now the Justice Department is saying that SARs aren’t enough.
Now, whenever banks suspect something ‘suspicious’ is going on, they want them to pick up the phone and call the
“[W]e encourage those institutions to consider whether to take more action: specifically, to alert law
enforcement authorities about the problem, who may be able to seize the funds, initiate an investigation, or
take other proactive steps.”
So what exactly constitutes ‘suspicious activity’? Basically anything.
According to the handbook for the Federal Financial Institution Examination Council, banks are required to file a SAR
with respect to:
“Transactions conducted or attempted by, at, or through the bank (or an affiliate) and aggregating $5,000 or more…”
It’s utterly obscene. According to the Justice Department, going to the bank and withdrawing $5,000 should
potentially prompt a banker to rat you out to the police.
This may be a very early form of capital controls in the Land of the Free. This is the subject of today’s Podcast. You
can listen in here.
We Lost The Wars – To The Victor Goes The Spoils
To be right with God, is to be in trouble with Men – A.W.Tozer
For almost 250 years Christians in America were able to live in freedom, specifically freedom from being persecuted.
Our nation is built on the fact the peoples from Europe fled religious persecution so that they could embrace and
promote biblical values instead of government run religion and their values.
We are kind of an anomaly, we Christians in America. We have never seen persecution. Where believers the world
over regularly encounter persecution, many pay the ultimate price and are killed for their beliefs in God. It is estimated
that every 11 minutes a Christian dies at the hands of persecutors.
But for the past 20 years things have been slowly changing. So slowly that twenty years later and we look around and
ask ourselves, where did our country go?
We have not been paying attention and it is the “slow boiling frog” syndrome waking us up. Like it or not, we have
lost both the cultural and spiritual wars that were fought these past 20 or so years.
A spiritual climate shift has taken place and we are just starting to wake up to the fact and realizing it. You remember
the story of Rip Van Winkle, how he fell asleep against a tree to wake up twenty years later and not know anyone and
how everything has changed?
We as Christians today are experiencing the same Rip Van Winkle effect. We look around and ask ourselves where
did our country, our lifestyle, and our freedoms, where did they go to?
They are gone and will probably never return. Why do I say that?
Our nation has in fact become a pro-pagan, pro-humanist, pro-homosexual and anti-Christian anything society. Is there
tolerance for anything Christian? Not at all, forget it, it is gone and is willfully forgotten.
Once the two generations of baby boomers die all those traditional values and votes will go with them. Like it or not,
they were the last standard bearers of God, Jesus and His Word. Already the intensity of this shift in ideas is becoming
blatantly obvious in our day to day lives.
Pastor and author Erwin Lutzer stated the following…
We have crossed an invisible line and there are no signs that we are capable of turning back. Like a boat caught in the
mighty torrent of the Niagara River, we are being swept along with powerful cultural currents that just might put us
over the brink. Seemingly irrevocable trends put in motion forty years ago continue to gather greater momentum and
speed. Our Judeo-Christian heritage that gave us the freedoms we have enjoyed is for the most part gone, and in its
place is an intolerant form of humanism that can boast of one victory after another . The “cultural war” we used to
speak about appears to be over, and we have lost. (1)
The Outcome? Become Prisoners of War
As I stated, we lost both the cultural and spiritual war. When the victor wins, they often round up the losers and
imprison them or even execute them. In other words, the losers are persecuted.
When we often think of persecution we think of imprisonment or martyrdom, but it more.
Here is a great definition by Geoffrey Bromiley…
“Persecution is the suffering or pressure, mental, moral, or physical which authorities, individuals, or crowds inflict on
others, especially for opinions or beliefs, with a view to their subjection by recantation, silencing, or, as a last resort,
In other words, persecution is the social marginalization of believers with the end goal of eliminating their voice and
their influence. What we are witnessing today is Christians being “squeezed” into submission from all directions.
So when we think of persecution, we often look at martyrdom, where today, Christians in the US are already suffering
that “squeeze” of persecution.
What will happen next is that pressure will escalate to more laws to regulate our beliefs in business to the point that
having a business will prove futile instead of profitable. Physical attacks will increase, just look at the street preachers
being harassed and arrested today for just standing in a city park preaching the gospel.
The goal is silencing our voice. Why? Because we shed the light in the darkness and the darkness does not like it. In
the end, anyone who claims the name of Christ will eventually end up in the anti-Christian cross hairs.
The World Hates Us
Like it or not, believe it or not, the world hates Christians. The world does not tolerate us, even though “WE” are to be
tolerant of others. We are the surge of the earth so why should “THEY” tolerate us?
But why do they hate us? Hey, I’m a nice guy. I obey the law, pay taxes, volunteer and as much as I don’t like doing
so… yes I recycle my garbage. I am a good red, white and blue American. So why does the world hate me?
Easy… we are different.
Scripture says…
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have
chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
There it is, right there in black and white from Jesus’ own mouth. The world hates us because we are children of God
and not children of the devil.
That is the great divide that so many of us forget.
In today’s watered down churches it is taught that God loves everyone and that everyone is God’s children.
1 John 3:7-10 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was
manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed
remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the
children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
Jesus speaking to the Pharisees and scribes stated the following…
John 8:44Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the
beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:
for he is a liar, and the father of it.
So this idea that we are ALL God’s Children is an error.
This is also why the world hates us, we are His.
Folks, people are starting to wake up to the realization that things are getting bad. Not only are they getting bad in the
states for everyone, they are getting worse for those of us who are Christians and part of the body of Christ.
When things are bad, it is human nature to pick on someone and make them the scape goat.
In Nazi Germany, the scape goat was the Jews. Hitler worked very hard at punishing, persecuting and then eliminating
the scape goat. He was pretty successful and killed over 6 million Jews and several million bible believing Christians
who would not bow down to his rules.
Like it or not, the same thing is going to happen here. It is human nature and man constantly replays his own history.
This is an ugly topic to discuss. But it is something that needs to have attention brought to it.
In the coming months and years persecution of Christians will get worse. I mean let’s face it. Congress is not going to
fund all these FEMA camps and just let them sit and gather dust. They will eventually use them.
My question is, are you going to wait around till it is too late to finally come to the realization that you might be an
occupant of said camps?
Read the writing on the wall. Yes it is scary and it is totally battling with your normalcy bias. But these things are
going to happen.
Man repeats his history – just see --
There is a Russian proverb that says " When it happens you will know that it is true, by then it will be too late."
I will continue along these lines in future articles discussing what we should do knowing what the future holds.

Costa Rica we had our hands tied.
I have started an email list of people who are interested in learning about how to be an expat, live the expat life and
succeed at being an expat.

When You See A Sword Coming - Three Existential Threats Facing
Last month, I addressed the closing dinner of the National
Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville. Last
night, I addressed a conference of pastors and ministry
leaders here in Tucson. The message here was nearly
the same as at NRB. People have been asking me to
share my notes because of the urgency of the subjects I
discussed. So I am posting them here tonight.
The following is the formal message I prepared for the
NRB Convention. While I did not deliver the speech
verbatim, you will get the essential points I made that
Existential Threats Facing America
My text tonight is Ezekiel chapter 33, verses one through nine. It is a famous passage — one that you all know —
about the role of the “Watchman on the Wall.” I believe it is deeply relevant to our times.
33 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, speak to the sons of your people and say to them, ‘If I
bring a sword upon a land, and the people of the land take one man from among them and make him their watchman,
3 and he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows on the trumpet and warns the people, 4 then he who hears
the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, and a sword comes and takes him away, his blood will be on his
own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet but did not take warning; his blood will be on himself. But had he
taken warning, he would have delivered his life. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the
trumpet and the people are not warned, and a sword comes and takes a person from them, he is taken away in his
iniquity; but his blood I will require from the watchman’s hand.’
7 “Now as for you, son of man, I have appointed you a watchman for the house of Israel; so you will hear a message
from My mouth and give them warning from Me. 8 When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you will surely die,’ and
you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require
from your hand. 9 But if you on your part warn a wicked man to turn from his way and he does not turn from his way,
he will die in his iniquity, but you have delivered your life.
More than 2,500 years ago, the Lord spoke these words to the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel.
- A man of God
- Born in Israel
- Exiled and living in Iraq
- Amidst grave dangers rising
What was Ezekiel commanded to do? The text is clear.
- Listen to God
- Watch for threats
- Warn the people, come what may
This was a divine calling – an enormous responsibility. And God was clear. Some would listen to Ezekiel’s warnings.
Some would not. Ezekiel was not going to be held responsible for the decision others made to obey the Lord or not.
He would be held responsible for obeying the Lord, teaching people the Word of God and warning the people when
God told him to speak. Fortunately, Ezekiel was faithful to the task.
As followers of Jesus Christ — and as pastors and ministry leaders and religious broadcasters — each of you are, in
our modern times, also watchmen on the walls. In many ways, you have the same calling. The same responsibility.
- To listen to the Word of God, found in the Bible
- To speak the Word of God — to tell people the bad news and the good news according to the Scriptures
- To warn people of threats that are rising
- To speak the truth in love, come what may
God warned Ezekiel — as He warns us today — that if He speaks and we don’t share His Word with others, we will
be held to account. What’s more, if we see threats rising, and we do not warn people, we will be held to account.
Tonight, as I look out America, I see three existential threats.
Threat #1 — What if America is not simply in a season of decline but heading towards collapse, towards implosion?
Threat #2 — What if America is not simply at rising risk of attack by Radical Islam but heading towards the risk of
annihilation by Apocalyptic Islam?
Threat #3 — What if America is not simply entering a season of strained relations with Israel but heading towards total
abandonment of the Jewish State?
Let’s take those one by one.
Threat #1 — What if America is not simply in a season of decline but heading towards collapse, towards implosion?
In 2012, I wrote a non-fiction book called, Implosion: Can America Recover From Her Economic & Spiritual
Challenges in Time? I commend it to your attention because every passing day I believe the analysis is proving to be
true and its message is becoming more urgent. The nation – and the Church – must know how much danger we are
in. If we are silent, or if we soften it around the edges, we will be held to account before the Lord.
In the State of the Union address in January, the President covered a range of issues and challenges that we face,
but this was his central case. “No challenge — no challenge — poses a greater threat to future generations than
climate change.” (SOTU, January 20, 2015)
I respectfully disagree. There is a long list of reasons America faces implosion, but I can sum it up in one number: 58
Since 1973, Americans have aborted 58 million babies. Think about that — 58 million. It is a staggering number. And if
something doesn’t happen soon to change course, in less than two years we will hit 60 million.
If this happens, we as Americans will have murdered ten times more human beings than the number of Jews
murdered by the Nazis.
We know the judgment of God that fell upon Nazi Germany. What do we think is going to happen to a nation that
exterminates ten times more people than the Nazis?
The judgment of Almighty God is coming. There is no way out. The souls of 58 million babies are crying out for justice
– and they will get it.But for this to happen we need to be pleading with God to have mercy on us. We need to be
calling people to prayer, fasting and above all repentance.
I’m grateful for pastors like Ronnie Floyd, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, and Bible teachers like Anne
Graham Lotz who are calling the Church to precisely this. May their tribe increase.
As watchmen, are you warning America of the coming implosion? Are you calling the Church and nation to prayer and
fasting and repentance? Is there more that you can do? Let us be found faithful, for I believe our time is running out.
Threat #2 — What if America is not simply at rising risk of attack by Radical Islam but heading towards the risk of
annihilation by Apocalyptic Islam?
There are two core themes in my books, both novels and non-fiction:
- To misunderstand the nature and threat of evil is to risk being blind-sided by it.
- Evil, unchecked, is the prelude to genocide.
On December 7, 1941, we were blindsided by an evil we did not understand.
It happened again on September 11, 2001.
The 9/11 Commission Report stated that the attacks perpetrated by al Qaeda were “not a failure of intelligence but a
failure of imagination.” Despite all of the data that was pouring in, our leaders in Washington simply never imagined
that such an attack were possible.
Fourteen years later, we have a President who refuses to define “Radical Islam” as the source of the threat we face in
the Middle East and North Africa.
- Running in 2008, said Iran was a small country and did not pose a serious threat to us
- January 2014: said ISIS was a “jayvee” squad, not a serious threat
- August 28, 2014: “We don’t have a strategy yet” to defeat ISIS.
- January 20, 2015: didn’t mention Islam or Islamism or AQI in his SOTU address
My friends, we cannot defeat an enemy we refuse to define.
The threat of Radical Islam is a very serious threat to us and our allies.
Consider the words of Jordan’s King Abdullah, not only a Muslim but a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad.
- we are in a “Third World War”
- “This is a war inside Islam. So we [Muslims] have to own up to it. We have to take the lead. And we have to start
fighting back.”
- “This is a Muslim problem. We need to take ownership of this. We need to stand up and say what is right and what is
wrong.” (interview on CBS 60 Minutes, December 5, 2014)
The King and his senior advisors get it. They aren’t Radicals, but Reformers. And they are actively engaged in fighting
the Radicals militarily, diplomatically, politically, financially, and even theologically.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi also gets it. He, too, is a Muslim – and he, too, is engaging the fight on
multiple fronts.
Consider his speech on January 1, 2015 at Al Azhar University in Cairo:
- “Is it possible that 1.6 billion people [Muslims] should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants…so that they
themselves may win? Impossible.”
- “We are in need of a religious revolution. You imams are responsible before Allah. The entire world is waiting for
your next move.”
The President insists that we are not at war with Islam. Obviously. The vast majority of the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims
are not a danger. But research shows that 7% to 10% of Muslims worldwide do support violent jihad. That’s upwards
of 150 million people. If it were a single country — the Islamic Republic of Radicalstan — it would the world’s 9th
largest, just ahead of Russia (146 million).
But the threat we face is not simply from Radical Islam. Indeed, it not even primarily from Radical Islam at this hour.
The most serious threat we face in the Middle East and North Africa is what I call “Apocalyptic Islam.”
This is a term each of needs to become familiar with and begin to teach others.
For the first time in all of human history, we have not just one but two nation states who rulers are driven not by
political ideology — or even mere religious theology — but by apocalyptic End Times eschatology.
- The Islamic Republic of Iran today is ruled by an apocalyptic, genocidal death cult.
- So is the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.
- The former are Shia. The latter are Sunni.
- Both believe the End of days has come.
- Both believe their messiah – known as the “Mahdi” — is coming at any moment.
- Both are trying to hasten the coming of the Mahdi.
Yet each has entirely different strategies.
- ISIS wants to build a caliphate.
- Iran wants to build The Bomb.
- ISIS is committing genocide now.
- Iran is preparing to commit genocide later.
In the near term, ISIS is more dangerous. Why? Because ISIS is on a jihadist rampage right now. Robbing. Killing.
Destroying. Enslaving. Raping. Torturing. Beheading. As Americans, we dare not turn a blind eye to this threat. If we
don’t defeat the jihadists over there, they are coming here. We must act, and act now.
That said, as Christians we have different responsibilities. The government’s job is to defeat and destroy our enemies.
Our job as Christians is to love our enemies, and all those who are living under their reign of terror.
As followers of Jesus Christ, we must not be blind to the enormous suffering inside the Muslim world, nor deaf to their
cries for help, nor dull to the tyranny we face. Christ commands us to love them, to serve them, to bless them, to tell
them the good news that they may have life. We must act, and act now.
Longer term, Iran is the most dangerous, especially if the President approves this nuclear deal that is emerging.
Why? Because the apocalyptic leaders of Iran are biding their time to build a nuclear arsenal capable of killing millions
of people in a matter of minutes.
Far too few people in the West truly understand the nature and threat of Radical Islam, much less that of Apocalyptic
Islam. Indeed, many dismiss these concerns all together. But it is empirical fact that a deep and widespread belief
exists within the Islamic world that we are living in the End of Days.
According to a 2012 report by the Pew Research Center, “in most countries in the Middle East and North Africa, South
Asia and Southeast Asia, more than half or more of Muslims believe they will love to see the return of the Mahdi.”
That’s more than 750 million Muslims.
Egypt — 40% of Muslims believe the return of the Mahdi is imminent.
Jordan — 41%
Palestinians — 46%
Iraq — 72%
What’s more, the report found that an enormous number of Muslims believe that Jesus is coming back to earth (to
serve under the Mahdi.)
Jordan — 29% of Muslims believe Jesus is coming back to earth
Egypt — 39%
Palestinians — 46%
Iraq — 64%
Apocalyptic Islamic eschatology is a photographic negative of Biblical eschatology. The leaders of Iran and ISIS
believe the way to hasten the coming of the messiah to kill as many people as possible. The followers of Jesus Christ,
on the other hand, believe the way to hasten the coming of the messiah is to save as many people as possible.
(Matthew 24:14)
Which brings me back to you — the watchmen on the wall.
Are you warning the nation of the “coming sword” – the threat of both Radical Islam and Apocalyptic Islam — and
explaining to people their similarities and their differences?
Are you urging the Church to fulfill the Great Commission by preaching the gospel and making disciples of all nations,
including Muslim nations?
Let us not simply tell the bad news. Let us tell the good news. And there is much good news. Since 1979, more
Muslims have come to faith on Christ and renounced Islam than in the last 14 centuries of Islam combined.
So now is not the time to cower in fear. Now is the time to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy
Spirit — with courage and conviction — because “faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of Christ.”
Which brings me finally to Threat #3 — What if America is not simply entering a season of strained relations with
Israel, but we are heading towards total American abandonment of the Jewish State?
- Genesis 12:1-3 — God says He will bless those who bless Israel and the Jewish people, and curse those who curse
- Joel 3:2 — God warns the nations that He will judge all who divide the Land of Israel.
- Ezekiel 38-39 — God warns that a group of nations will attack Israel in the “last days” but no nation will come to
Israel’s defense.
- Revelation 16 — God warns that all nations in the End of Days will attack Israel.
The Bible teaches us that all nations will turn against Israel in the last days — and all nations will face judgment for it
— but woe into us if it happens on our watch.
Have we come to that fateful moment? It is not yet clear. Still, we are watching the President:
- negotiate an incredibly dangerous deal with Iran
- refuse to share the details of this detail with Israel, America’s most faithful and trusted ally in the region
- refuse to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister when he came to address a Joint Session of Congress on matters of
existential importance to both of our nations.
- send the VP and Secretary of State out of country to avoid seeing the Prime Minister
- send his political strategists and operatives to defeat the Prime Minister and his party in Israel’s elections
This is the most dangerous moment in the history of the U.S.-Israel relationship.
What do the next two years hold?
I’m not sure. But this much I know: on top of all America’s national challenges and sins, we dare not also abandon or
turn against Israel and the Jewish people. If we do, we will seal our fate with God.
Which brings me back to you — the watchmen on the walls.
Are you warning the nation and the Church of the dangerous road the President has us on vis-à-vis Israel?
Are you mobilizing Christians to love and bless and pray for and stand with Israel and the Jewish people in this critical
I am afraid I cannot tell you whether God will grant America a Third Great Awakening and/or raise up a King like
Josiah (see 2 Chronicles 34-35) and thus forestall the coming judgment.
I cannot tell you whether the American government will do its job to protect us and our allies from Radical and
Apocalyptic Islam before it’s too late.
Or whether the Church will do her job in fulfilling the Great Commission and standing with our persecuted brothers
and sisters in the epicenter.
Or whether America and the Church will stand with Israel and bless her and the Jewish people.
All I can tell you is that you and I have been called to be watchmen on the walls.
Our job is to:
- Listen to and study and know the Word of God
- Teach the Word of God
- Watch for threats
- Warn the people, come what may
We are not going to be held responsible if people do not listen to us or to the Word of God. We will be held to account
if we fail to speak and act when the Lord commands us to do so.
Much is hanging in the balance. May you and I be found faithful to the task.

The Largest, Best Funded Voter Fraud Operation in US History
Happening Before Your Eyes
Steven Ahle
Within the first couple of months of Obama’s illegal immigration executive , at least ninety thousand
Social Security cards were issued to illegal aliens. Now Republican Senators led by Ben Sasse and
Jeff Sessions are asking the Obama administration to answer questions on how many additional
social security cards were issued. The answer
is important because it will allow citizens to know
just how much money taxpayers are spending to
illegal aliens.
Social Security cards are keys of the kingdom to
illegal aliens. With them, they are able to access
a number of all sorts of benefits, including the
Earned Income Tax Credit, Social Security
disability payments or Social Security’s
supplemental income program. The senators
also want to know how much in benefits these
illegals have collected. The senators have yet to
connect the dots in Obama’s real scheme. Let
me help them out.
Social Security cards besides making illegals
eligible for benefits, can have a more profound
problem for the United States. The cards make it very easy for illegals to register to vote, even in states with voter ID
laws. One of the documents accepted for registering to vote is………….Social Security cards. This is dot number
one. But administration officials don’t dare instruct the illegals on how to vote and many might not trust them. The
Washinton Times explains how easy it would be to add millions of new voters through the democrat’s illegal amnesty.
So how do you get around this? Simple. You have La Raza do it. Yes, La Raza actually teaches illegal immigrants
where and how to register and vote. With the advent of so many illegals being able to vote and limited resources, La
Raza couldn’t possibly handle the volume or afford to spend the kind of money necessary to facilitate such a huge
Obama and congressional democrats along with a huge assist from Eric Holder may shed some light on this, too.
What if we add the former ACORN into the mix? No, they aren’t defunct, they just use the democratic playbook,
which calls for changing the name of ACORN to NeighborWorks America. That may answer the manpower problem
to a large extent, but what about the massive amount of money that would be needed?
Both NeighborWorks America and La Raza have found a huge funding source. The DOJ has sued several banks
and made settlements in which the banks have paid 24 billion in fines. One of the banks, CitiCorp was also ordered
to pay $50 million to La Raza and NeighborWorks America as part of the settlement. But wait, it doesn’t stop there.
Another clause in the agreement makes it possible for La Raza and NeighborWorks America to rake in even larger
amounts of money.
Of the remaining money the banks needed to pay in settlements, the banks were able to contribute additional money
to La Raza and NeighborWorks America. For every dollar they contribute, it reduces their debt to the government by
2 dollars. That’s some mighty powerful incentive to give generously.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and House Financial Services Chairman Jeb
Hensarling have questioned why this money was sent to the two organizations rather than to the alleged victims of
the bank’s crime. The administration of course declined to answer. here is part of their letter to Holder:
“It seems that the alleged victims are not the primary beneficiaries of these multi-billion dollar settlements.
Instead, the terms in the Justice Department’s two latest settlements look less like consumer relief and more
like a scheme to funnel money to politically favored special interest groups.”
“This makes donations to activist groups far more attractive to banks than providing direct relief to injured
consumers. As a result, the settlements appear to serve as a vehicle for funding activist groups rather than
as a means of securing relief for consumers actually harmed.”
So now, with Social Security cards, manpower and tons of money to go along with the two years before the next
presidential election, the largest and most successful voter fraud campaign may alter the course of the elections not
to mention the future of the United States.
Michelle O Mandates Weighing Children in Daycare
In accordance with Michelle Obama's Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA), the Department of Agriculture
published a proposal aimed at collecting weight measurements of children in daycare, as well as what they are
eating and their level of physical activity while at home and under others' care.
The title of the study is SNAQCS (think "snacks") -- Study on Nutrition and Wellness Quality in Childcare Settings.
The notice states:
Good nutrition is a key to proper childhood development, but not enough is known about the food
children are eating in childcare and related programs.
The intent of the study is to document the quality of meals and snacks offered in childcare facilities…
the types of activities that might promote or inhibit healthy weight and development… The study will
take place in the context of heightened concern about adequate nutrition, diet quality and obesity in
young children.
In addition, staff at childcare facilities are instructed to measure the height and weight of each child. It is also
requesting a "Child Food Diary" from the parents: one for a typical "childcare day" as well as from a "non-childcare
day." Parents are also required to complete a parent interview.
The new data collected will be in addition to previous data collected in 2010 after the initial passage of HHFKA. An
estimated 12,472 parents, young children, and childcare staff and sponsors will participate in the survey.

Police departments hiring immigrants as officers
Alan Gomez , USA TODAY 2:56 p.m. EDT March 21,
(Photo: George Walker IV, The (Nashville) Tennessean)
Law enforcement agencies struggling to fill their ranks or connect with their
increasingly diverse populations are turning to immigrants to fill the gap.
Most agencies in the country require officers or deputies to be U.S. citizens, but some
are allowing immigrants who are legally in the country to wear the badge. From
Hawaii to Vermont, agencies are allowing green-card holders and legal immigrants
with work permits to join their ranks.
At a time when 25,000 non-U.S. citizens are serving in the U.S. military, some feel it's time for more police and sheriff
departments to do the same. That's why the Nashville Police Department is joining other departments to push the
state legislature to change a law that bars non-citizens from becoming law enforcement officers.
Department spokesman Don Aaron said they want immigrants who have been honorably discharged from the military
to be eligible for service.
"Persons who have given of themselves in the service to this country potentially have much to offer Tennesseans," he
said. "We feel that ... would benefit both the country and this city."
Current rules vary across departments.
Some, like the Chicago and Hawaii police departments, allow any immigrant with a work authorization from U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Services to become an officer. That means people in the country on temporary visas or
are applying for green cards can join.
Colorado State Patrol Sgt. Justin Mullins said the department usually struggles to fill trooper positions in less
populous corners of the state, including patrol sectors high up in the mountains. He said immigrants from Canada, the
Bahamas, the United Kingdom, Mexico and Central America who are willing to live in those remote places have
helped the agency fill those vacancies.
"People that want to live there and build a family there and work there is a little more difficult to find," Mullins said.
"People moving from out of state, or out of the country, if they're willing to work in these areas, then that's great for
Other agencies, like the Cincinnati Police Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, require that
officers at least have a pending citizenship application on file with the federal government. And others, like the
Burlington, Vt., and Boulder, Colo., police departments, require that officers be legal permanent residents, or greencard holders.
With more immigrants moving to places far from the southern border or away from traditional immigrant magnets like
New York City or Miami, agency leaders say it's important to have a more diverse police force to communicate with
those immigrants and understand their culture. Bruce Bovat, deputy chief of operations in Burlington, said their
immigrant officers help the agency be more "reflective of the community we serve."
Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, said he has no problems with green-card
holders becoming police officers because they've made a long-term commitment to the country and have undergone
extensive background checks. But he worries about the security risks associated with allowing any immigrant with a
work permit to become an officer, especially considering that the Obama administration has given hundreds of
thousands of undocumented immigrants work permits.
"We're handing over a gun and a badge to somebody whose background we don't really know a lot about," Krikorian
Ali Noorani, executive director of the National Immigration Forum, said any immigrant authorized to work in the U.S.
has already undergone a thorough background check and will undergo even more screening in the police application
"The security risk is a straw man," he said. "This is about people who have gone through criminal background
checks, who are meeting the very high standards that we set as a country to stay here and who only want to serve
and protect their communities."
Anti-Semitic attackers yelling 'we will kill you' storm synagogue
in London
A group of approximately 20 youths attacked a local synagogue in the London suburb of Stamford Hill over the
weekend, yelling threats, beating worshipers and vandalizing property, according to IsraelHatzolah's official twitter
One witness belonging to the "Ahavat Torah" congregation described the mob as shouting "we will kill you" as they
proceeded to physically assault the worshipers inside the synagogue and tear apart prayer books.
Another Jewish local who had passed by the scene rushed inside, grabbing one of the suspects with the intention of
bringing him to the police, but was quickly overwhelmed by the other attackers and suffered strikes to the face, losing
a tooth.
Police confirmed that they were treating the attack as an anti-Semitic incident. Police were called to the scene early
on Sunday morning, just after 1 a.m. local time, when a group of intoxicated men, believed to have come from a
nearby party, tried to gain entry into the synagogue.
One man suffered injuries while trying to prevent the men from entering. Some of the group did succeed in entering,
eventually being removed by security staff.
Six men were arrested for disturbing public order and assault.
Police said that they had increased patrols in the area in order to provide reassurance to the community.
The assault on the north London synagogue comes days before the opening of a hotline dedicated to providing
advice and support to victims of anti-Semitism.
According to the CST, a charity meant to monitor and provide solutions to acts of anti-Jewish behavior in the UK, the
hotline, called the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism, is an answer to numerous anti-Semitic incidents that have
plagued Britain's Jewish community.
In February of 2014, the Community Security Trust issued a report that showed the number of anti-Semitic incidents
in the UK more than doubling from 1,168.
Apart from physical violence and damage to property, reports of anti-Semitism also included increased internet based
abuses such as hate speech on social media websites.
Close to 150,000 of Britain's estimated 286,000 Jews who live in and around London saw a 137% increase in antiSemetic incidents reaching 583.
Meanwhile the second-largest Jewish center, Manchester, had a 79% rise to 309 incidents. The CST also noted
anti-Semitic incidents in 89 other locations around the UK.

Pope Francis Excommunicates Conservative Bishop, While He
Tolerates Evil Priests Who Advance The Homosexual Agenda
By Theodore Shoebat
There was once a time when the Catholic Church was filled with justice, when it drove out heretics and uprooted all
that was contrary to true doctrine and orthodoxy. Now it has become almost like a club, where sodomite priests run
rampant and advance the most demonic homosexual agenda. While Pope Francis has done some good (and we
have specified them on this website numerous times), he has also done thing that are worthy of criticism.
He has commended Islam, prayed at the Blue Mosque in Turkey (the nation of the Antichrist), and kissed the hand of
Michele de Paolis, one of the most notorious homosexual activist in Italy.
Just recently Pope Francis excommunicated a conservative Catholic named William Richardson, an outspoken
critique of the modernist agenda that has infiltrated the Church so much. Now, Williamson is a Holocaust denier (and
this is evil), but, this is not why Pope Francis excommunicated him. He excommunicated him because he illicitly
appointed a man Brazil to be a bishop.
For this, he was excommunicated. The Vatican is excommunicating him, yet they are not excommunicating the
multitude of corrupt and evil bishops and priests who are running rampant throughout the Church. It is true that
Francis did excommunicate Fr. Greg Reynolds for teaching feminist and pro-homosexual views, but he needs to
clean the rest of these deviants out.
Richard Williamson
For example, Robert L. Kincl is a canon law judge for the Vatican who was appointed by Rome. He teaches that its
okay for two men to masturbate each other, and not only this, but he also defended a convicted child molester, Robert
I confronted Deacon Ron Walker, an official of the Vatican, asking why the Church has done nothing to punish Robert
L. Kincl, a priest and canon law judge who was appointed by the Pope himself, who teaches that if two men
masturbate each other they do not commit sin, and who himself defended confirmed child molester priest, Fr. Robert
Hrdlicka. This is after filed a complaint against Kincl after we caught him teaching us depravity.
Deacon Ron Walker and the Bishop of Austin, Joe Vasquez, and Vicar General Daniel Garcia, did nothing to have
Robert L. Kincl punished, even after they promised to take care of this evil. Why Pope Francis excommunicated
Bishop Williamson, why doesn’t he also excommunicate Robert L. Kincl? I did a whole video on this:
Not only this, but we also have Msgr. Michael Yarbrough, a priest who forced himself on a young man named Hector
Escelante and kissed him on the lips. Yarbrough is also a major donor to a homosexual activist group. Why hasn’t the
Pope excommunicated this deviant?
While we were doing some work in Texas we were told of a man named Msgr. Michael Yarbrough (also known as
Michael Yarborough), and how he is a deviant priest who forcefully kissed a young man named Hector Escalante on
the lips, and how he was supporting a pro homosexual group called Call to Action. Here is a photo of Msgr. Michael
Well, we decided that we were going to bait Msgr. Michael Yarbrough. I visited him in a confessional booth where I
told him my age and apparently it registered an interest and he asked me if I wanted to come and hang out with him.
He fell for the bait. I found it very odd that a priest of his high position, with a very busy schedule, would all of a
sudden want to spend time with me.
I accepted his offer, and gave him a call, and asked him if we would meet at a book store. He said that he preferred
that we meet in his office.
When I did research on Msgr. Michael Yarbrough, I found a 2002 report written in the San Antonio Express which
Hector Escalante complained that Monsignor Michael Yarbrough kissed him on the lips and groped him
in his office in 1998 when Escalante was 27, on his last day on the job as a St. Matthew’s Parish
Yarbrough admitted kissing him but said Escalante misunderstood the gesture, which the priest said
was common among men in his family. He denied groping Escalante.
Imagine, a man kissing another man on the lips as “common.”
I told Msgr. Michael Yarbrough that it would be better that we meet in a book store, to which he agreed. I asked him
how much time he had, and he said, as long as I wanted. After doing some more research, I also found out that on
top of kissing a young man on the lips, Msgr. Michael Yarbrough is a also a major donor to a pro homosexual group,
called Call to Action, and I found his name on a list made by Call to Action designated as “major donors”. I took a
snapshot of the list with Msgr. Michael Yarbrough’s name highlighted:
So, we had the meeting at the bookstore, and after some conversation, I busted him on his heresies and his
scandals, and also paid a visit to his church where I was eventually kicked out by his followers (who probably know
nothing on how evil this heretic is). Here is the video:
If your pastor says anything in favor for Islam and homosexuality, confront him, and do so with aggression. If you
attend a Christian school or university, and they have events in favor for homosexuality or Islam, go in there and
confront the entire event, and do so with aggression.
If our Lord entered the Temple with a whip, the least we can do is confront these devils, and do so with aggression,
and film them. Instill fear into their hearts, and horrify them into submission.
It is my aspiration that this video will begin an international movement I call Operation Whip. We must confront the
deviant and heretical ministers, and not only that, we must film them and post the videos on the internet. Its time to
apply the whip (peer pressure) on them.
This will break their will and put us, the zealous, in the position of power and advantage over them, and make them
submit to God and not to money and mammon.
The time for weakness and sycophancy is over, there must be a movement of zealots who will take up cameras,
confront these wicked ministers, and make them tremble.
For decades righteous Christians have been being mistreated and ignored by church leaders, and this is because so
many Christians have, innocently, placed themselves under the authority of the hirelings with the impression that they
are doing the right thing by being submissive, even when they are promoting evil and depravity.
St. Thomas Aquinas calls this indiscriminate obedience, which recklessly obeys all things regardless of how
destructive they may be. (Aquinas, Summa Theologiae, IIa IIae, 104, article 5). All tyrannies thrive on indiscriminate
obedience, for without those who think that submission to them is righteous, all of their power crumbles.
It is the same with cults and corrupt ministers. The reason why we have them is because of all the people who
support them, and agree with them. But even in churches where the minister is corrupt, you have righteous
congregants who do want to learn truth, but instead get nothing but the rubbish that springs from the superficial love
of mammon.
These righteous Christians will go to the pastor, try to talk to them, but will get nothing but a passing of the buck, some
nice words, some empty promises from the pastor that he will “think about it.” Or, they will try to set up a meeting with
the pastor, but will get continuous excuses such as “the pastor is very busy” or endless postponements.
The days of wasting time and struggling just to get a useless meeting with a pastor, are over. Now we are in the days
that obligate us to confront these wicked ministers, just as our Lord confronted those who were prostituting His
Father’s Temple with zeal and a whip.
These are the days of zeal, these are the days in which we must stand up to the hirelings to their faces, film it, and let
them fear and respect us, and not the other way around.
This is what Operation Whip is about, confronting pastors and teachers when they preach heresy and evil, get it on
film, expose them.
I ask you, confront any wicked pastor or teacher you know, film it, post it online, and send it over to with
proof of his evils, and we will make sure that its seen. We have to shift the battle against them.
If we can all do this, then we can clean out the Church in a matter of months.

Karl Rove Criticizes Glenn Beck Leaving the GOP, Beck Fires
Kim Quade
This past Wednesday, on his radio program, host Glenn Beck declared that he was “done” with the Republican Party.
“I’ve made my decision – I’m out. I’m out of the Republican Party. I am not a Republican; I will not give
a dime to the Republican Party. I’m out. I highly recommend – run from the Republican Party. They are
not good.”
He further explained his frustrations.
“They ran and they said they were doing all of these great things and they were going to stand against
Obamacare and illegal immigration – they set us up. They set us up. Enough is enough. They’re
torpedoing the Constitution and they’re doing it knowingly. They’re taking on people like Mike Lee and
Ted Cruz and they are torpedoing them. Knowingly.”
Republican political wonk and former GW Bush advisor Karl Rove basically blew off Beck’s denunciations on
Friday’s O’Reilly Factor on the Fox News Channel. He even brought his ubiquitous white board with him.
Beck was not about to take Rove’s brickbats. On Saturday he fired back on Facebook with an scathing open letter,
asking Rove if he wanted to “rumble,” and charging that GOP leaders “have the spine of a worm, the ethics of whores,
and the integrity of pirates,” while ‘apologizing’ to worms, whores, and pirates.
Glenn Beck was backed up by fellow radio host Mark Levin, who posted his agreement on Facebook with the single
word, “Yep.”
As far as the Rove/Beck kerfuffle is concerned, I say. . . meh.
I don’t trust Karl Rove. I find him to be a political opportunist rather than a patriot, concerned more with party victory
than promoting conservatism and the Constitution. As far as Glenn Beck goes, while he is a constitutional purist and
patriot, I find the timing of his pronouncement to be curious. After all, four years ago he told Newsmax that he
despised Republicans. “I hate them. I think they are just as much a problem as the other side.” In 2013 he appeared
on the O’Reilly Factor saying that he was “done” with establishment Republicans.
In fact, when I told my husband that Glenn Beck was leaving the Republican party he replied, “He’s been saying that
for years.”
I’m frustrated with the Republican party as well, but I won’t leave it. Here’s why.
I live in Kansas, a totally red state. We have a Republican governor, and all six Congressional members are
Republicans — both Senators and four House members. The Kansas statehouse in Topeka is dominated in both
chambers by Republicans. However, Kansas has one teensy little problem for conservative Pubbies who want
to leave the Grand Old Party.
Kansas has closed primaries — actually, closed for Republicans and semi-closed for Democrats. To vote in the
Republican primary, one needs to be a member of the party, although Democrats have decided to accept both
affiliated and non-affiliated voters in their primary elections. Conservative Republicans also have to deal with the
MainStream Coalition, a Kansas-based organization which touts itself as the “moderate” voice, when it’s actually
composed of liberals who seek to upset conservative candidates by endorsing the more liberal in a primary race. In
Kansas, therefore, if a conservative wants to keep his or her good state senator or house member in office, they must
maintain membership in the Republican party in order to support them in a primary.
Neither Glenn Beck, a resident of Texas, nor Mark Levin, from Virginia, need to deal with closed primaries. Both of
those states have open primaries.
I’m not asking that fellow conservatives remain in the Republican party. If conscience demands that you leave the
GOP, then by all means exercise your ability to do so. Just make sure there will be no unwanted consequences.
Conservative Lawmakers Push for Religious Freedom Legislation
Ahead of Supreme Court Hearing on Homosexual Marriage
A wave of legislation by conservative lawmakers
seeks to ensure protections for those who oppose
homosexual marriage at the state level even as the
Supreme Court prepares to establish what would
amount to a national standard on same-sex
Even in states such as Indiana and Nevada, where
same-sex couples have won the right to obtain a
marriage license, defiant lawmakers are pushing
scores of bills that would uphold their view that
marriage must only be between one man and one
The collection of measures is piling up, with at least
70 filed so far this year.
The wide-ranging bills would prohibit same-sex
parents from adopting; penalize government
employees who issue marriage licenses; and create
loopholes for what amounts to discrimination
against LGBT couples on religious grounds.
A state-by-state break down of controversial legislation.
They have been filed in more than one-third of the 50 states, including Texas, Florida, Arkansas and Alabama.
“Texas legislators are acting to make certain — if the outcome of (the Supreme Court’s ruling) is not palpable to Texas
— to not be impacted by the outcome,” said Rep. Cecil Bell Jr., a Republican member of the state House in the Lone
Star State whose package of measures would effectively supercede a federal ruling.
LGBT advocates are confident the majority of the laws will be voted down or tossed out in court challenges.
Still, they say, the message is being delivered loud and clear: opponents of same-sex marriage do not plan to go
down quietly.
“Why have those battles when these bills are so clearly flawed and full of animus?” said Sarah Warbelow, legal
director for the Human Rights Campaign.
The measures most likely to find traction – and possibly, enactment – are the Religious Freedom Restoration Acts
found in states like Michigan, Indiana and Georgia.
All are patterned after a federal law signed by former President Bill Clinton, which was intended to protect religious
freedoms. It’s now being twisted by what opponents say is to justify the denial of rights to same-sex couples by those
whose objections stem from their religious beliefs.
The federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act was meant to counteract a 1990 Supreme Court ruling in Department
of Human Resources of Oregon v. Smith, a case in which Alfred Smith and Galen Black had been fired and denied
unemployment benefits for smoking peyote in a Native American religious ceremony.
The Court ruled the state was justified in doing so, but the law guaranteed a new set of religious-based protections.
Now, conservative lawmakers want to use religion as a means to justify objections to same-sex marriage, though
marriage equality advocates call it a misguided bid.
“It was never intended to be used as a shield for discrimination against other people,” said Rose Saxe, a New Yorkbased staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union.
Opponents fear the latest round of statutes would give florists, photographers, caterers and other business owners
the latitude to deny same-sex couples their services, simply by citing religious beliefs.
The measures, if approved, would be increasingly difficult to prove unconstitutional due to federal precedent,
Warbelow said.
“It sounds like religious freedom, but it’s really about discrimination against people under the cloak of religion,”
Warbelow added.
Such policies have been attempted in 13 states this year, and have so far been defeated in five.
A bill under consideration in Michigan would allow adoption agencies to cite religious grounds in rejecting applications
by would-be gay parents.
Saxe fears the bills based on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act could have ramifications outside the realm of the
LGBT community, including religious challenges to child welfare cases and vaccination requirements.
Even presumptive Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush has come out in favor of so-called religious
discrimination measures.
“Religious freedom is a serious issue, and it’s increasingly so,” the former Florida governor said Thursday outside the
Georgia Statehouse. “And I think people that act on their conscience shouldn’t be discriminated against, for sure.”
Georgia state Sen. Joshua McKoon, author of what opponents have called the legislation with the gravest of
consequences, argues his policies have engendered scrutiny among “desperate” liberal groups citing a “laundry list of
absurd hypothetical situations that have never occurred in the real world.”
“It’s never been interpreted to protect against discrimination,” McKoon said.
Bell, the Texas lawmaker, said his bills reflect the state’s history of conservative values and are predicated on states’
rights to do so.
The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments next month in a challenge to state bans on same-sex marriage in
Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. A landmark ruling, which would effectively resolve the debate and establish
a national standard, is expected before the judicial term ends in June.
In the event the Court prohibits states from denying a marriage license to same-sex couples, Bell says lawmakers
have filed more than 20 bills that would insulate the Lone Star State from the mandate.
His Marriage and Religious Rights Ensured Act would grant “conscientious objector” status to anybody wishing to
deny services to same-sex couples on the basis of religious belief.
He cited the case of a florist in Richland, Wash., who was fined by the state for denying a gay couple service for their
“We don’t want that in Texas,” Bell told the Daily News. “It’s important that we allow all businesses in Texas to … have
the ability to not be put in that position.”
Bell’s proposals would also transfer the authority to issue marriage licenses in Texas from county clerks to the
Secretary of State’s office, and institute monetary penalties for any state official caught handing out a marriage
license to same-sex couples.
In Oklahoma, lawmakers – exasperated after the defeat of several bills – are moving to give members of the clergy
the responsibility of performing almost all marriages and issuing licenses (the state would still collect a fee).

BREAKING: It’s Happening… Ted Cruz Makes Major
It was only a matter of time before the first potential conservative presidential contender made it official — but no one
thought anything would come quite this early.
According to reports from his senior advisers, the no-nonsense, hard-hitting Texas Sen. Ted Cruz will announce
Monday his intentions of running for the position of President of the United States.
Cruz has taken a wild political ride since his rise to the Senate in 2012, backed by a ferociously patriotic tea party
base who were tired of weak Republicans not fulfilling promises and bowing down to President Obama and
Democratic leadership at nearly every turn.
But that’s not how Cruz rolls — in only three short years, he’s never backed down from the White House and has
been one of the most public, outspoken critics of the Obama regime.
He’s done it all, from 21-hour speeches opposing the rollout of Obamacare to calling for the resignation of both Sec.
of State John Kerry and outgoing Attorney Gen. Eric Holder.
Cruz wants them all gone and he’s built one heck of a strong following from his actions.
According the Houston Chronicle, he’s scheduled to speak at a convocation ceremony at Liberty University in Virginia
Monday, where he’ll announce his intention to run for president. His advisers said he will skip the exploratory
committee and launch a direct bid for the presidency.
There’s no doubt that the same tea party voters who hoisted him to an underdog victory in 2012 will have his back,
but the question remains if he’ll grab enough support from swing and undecided voters, along with hardcore,
establishment Republicans who, at this point, have to be tired of Speaker Boehner serving as Obama’s errand boy.
His critics, at this point, say he won’t be able to raise the big money he needs to get things moving. But it’s probably
fair to say that most Americans who would vote for Cruz aren’t doing so based on money raised, because as far as I
can tell, there’s nothing in the Constitution stating only the ultra-rich and well-funded can represent the people.
Over the past two months, Cruz has already stumped in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina — three states
that have the tendency to win general elections.
With Cruz being a massive critic of Obama’s illegal amnesty push, he should have no problem garnering support in
the south and from every American who’s sick and tired of Obama attacking our own country from within.
We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Cruz and wish him luck.
Share this on Facebook and Twitter if you think Cruz is making a smart, tactical decision by being the first to make a
presidential run official in a large field of potentially great candidates.

Report: Ted Cruz to Announce Presidential Bid Monday
United States Senator and Tea Party favorite Ted Cruz is expected Monday to confirm plans to run for president in
2016, the Houston Chronicle reported Saturday.
The Texas Republican will announce his presidential bid -- as opposed to forming a preliminary exploratory committee
-- at a convocation ceremony at Liberty University in Virginia, according to senior advisors speaking to the newspaper.
Cruz, 44, will be the first Republican to officially confirm plans to run in the next presidential election, though others,
including Jeb Bush, have signaled they could join the race.
The advisors told the newspaper that Cruz will aim to raise between $40 million and $50 million for his campaign, and
will rely on support from his Tea Party base that voted him in as senator in 2012.
The grassroots Tea Party favorite will run as a proud conservative and is eager to court voters that
share his values, the advisors said.
At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) last month, Cruz told the crowd that "2016 looks like it's going
to be a crowded race."
Republican Senators Rand Paul and Marco Rubio have also hinted at their own White House interests.
Cruz has raised hackles in his own party in recent years when he helped push the US government into shutdown
over budget fights, and for opposing Republican leadership on a series of issues.
He is an outspoken critic of Barack Obama's administration and its allies, and has already lashed out at potential
presidential competitors from the Democratic party, including Hillary Clinton, who he said "embodies the corruption of
On his website, Cruz is described as "a passionate fighter for limited government, economic growth and the
A CPAC straw poll conducted in February placed Cruz in third place as the party's pick for president, behind Kentucky
Senator Paul and Wisconsin governor Scott Walker.
Bush, former governor and the son and brother of former presidents, came in fifth.
Urban Death Project seeks to compost dead humans to feed the
crops: has it really come to this?
(NaturalNews) A Seattle architect named Katrina Spade has proposed a new solution for urban food production:
convert the recently deceased into nutritious compost to feed the food crops.
The project is called the Urban Death Project, and it describes the process of turning dead humans into food as
The Urban Death Project is a compost-based renewal system. At the heart of the project is a three-story core, within
which bodies and high-carbon materials are placed. Over the span of a few months, with the help of aerobic
decomposition and microbial activity, the bodies decompose fully, leaving a rich compost. The Urban Death Project is
not simply a system for turning our bodies into soil-building material. It is also a space for the contemplation of our
place in the natural world, and a ritual to help us say goodbye to our loved ones by connecting us with the cycles of
The Urban Death Project website describes the project as a 501(c) non-profit, and a fundraising effort is due to launch
March 30th on Kickstarter. The donate page explains, "Your gift supports the creation of a meaningful, equitable, and
ecological alternative for the care and processing of our deceased."
Human sewage is already used as compost for food crops
As a matter of full disclosure, I'm happy to say right up front that I am the developer of UltraClean Super Plant Food
sold at and that our plant food has NO composted dead people in it. (Perhaps I should add that to
the label?)
Nor does it contain human sewage waste as is frequently found in the majority of compost products sold at big box
stores across America. Those products are derived from so-called "biosolids" which are sourced from human waste
sludge mixed with other biomass sources such as dried leaves and plant waste.
Yes: in America today, if you buy compost from the big box stores -- or even directly from some cities -- you
are growing your garden vegetables in composted human waste. Lovely...
The Urban Death Project wants to take it one step further. Instead of just composting the feces and sewage from
humans, their idea is to compost the entire bodies of the deceased and turn them into nutrients for urban food
production. As Fellowship of the Minds reports, this sounds a whole lot like "Soylent Green."
On one hand, death is a natural cycle of life; but then again...
From an environmental perspective, of course, the idea of composting human bodies into nutrients for plants isn't as
strange as it might sound. In fact, the far more bizarre ritual is pumping dead bodies full of embalming fluids and
burying them in overpriced luxury caskets full of synthetic resins and fibers. Embalming fluids are extremely toxic to
the planet, and it seems far more respectful to put the body of a deceased person in the ground and let nature run its
After all, your body isn't YOU. The body is just a vessel for the non-material spirit (consciousness) which leaves the
body at the moment of physical death. If your time with your physical body is over, then why not return the body to
the Earth from which it came in as natural a state as possible?
So from that point of view, at least the intention of the Urban Death Project can't be faulted. The architect, Katrina
Spade, appears to be approaching this from what she sees as a holistic community solution. But she's so far missing
some huge problems with this plan, as I'll detail below. In fact, the Urban Death Project, if pursued as described on the
website, would actually accelerate the death of the very same population it claims to help sustain.
Composting does not eliminate heavy metals and toxic
To understand the contamination problem with the Urban Death Project, consider this Q&A on the project website:
Q: Is it safe to compost bodies?
ANSWER: Composting creates heat, which kills common viruses and bacteria. Research into mortality composting of
livestock has found that the temperature inside the compost reaches 140 degrees Fahrenheit, which is high enough to
kill off pathogens. Farmers are using mortality composting in order to safely dispose of their dead livestock, as well as
to control odor and runoff. The Urban Death Project is fine tuning this process to be appropriate and meaningful for
humans in an urban setting.
The problem with this explanation is that compost heat does not eliminate toxic heavy metals or toxic chemicals. It
also doesn't eliminate prions, the folded proteins associated with Mad Cow Disease.
The average urban dweller's body, it turns out, is a toxic stew of lead, cadmium, mercury, fluorine, pesticides and other
chemicals. To depict this, I created a Counterthink cartoon entitled Seafood Mercury Warning.
As the cartoon explains, sharks have been warned not to eat humans any longer because of all the toxic mercury found
in the teeth of those humans.
This is not a joke: A typical city-dweller living in America today has an atrociously high level of toxic mercury in
their teeth. On top of that, they have also bio-accumulated extremely high levels of lead, cadmium, arsenic and other
toxic heavy metals which persist during composting. Lead is often bound to calcium in the human skeletal system. As
those bones decompose, they release the lead which becomes part of the composted soil. This lead, in turn, is taken up
by plant roots and shuttled into the food crops to be eaten by other humans.
Composting human bodies, in other words, would concentrate the toxic heavy metals and chemicals which are
already causing a wave of degeneration and disease around the world. In fact, the mass of a modern human body
would be considered "environmentally hazardous" by the EPA if it were water. That's because humans bio-accumulate
and concentrate the toxins of modern agriculture, animal feed, toxic medicine and toxic home building materials.
The Urban Death Project advocates precisely the kind of activity which would concentrate these toxic heavy metals to
higher and higher levels in the urban food supply:
Loved ones are encouraged to take some compost back to their own yards and gardens. The compost is also used to
nourish the site, and city parks use it to fertilize plants and trees. In this way, the dead are folded back into the fabric
of the city.
I found scary high levels of heavy metals in human hair vs.
animal hair
As the science lab director of the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, I personally test food, water and environmental
samples for toxic heavy metals. The ICP-MS instrument I use is sensitive down to parts per billion concentrations
across most of the Table of Elements.
One of the things I have done with this instrument, mostly out of curiosity, is tested hair samples of willing
participants compared to hair taken from animals on my ranch. Hair from my ranch animals includes dog hair (from
brushing my dog), rabbit hair (from a recently deceased slow-poke rabbit my dogs caught), goat hair (from my happy
goats) and chicken feathers (from my free-range chickens).
What I found was very disturbing: for many elements, human hair had over 100 times the heavy metals of ranch
animal hair. This was especially noticeable for mercury, which is inhaled from mercury dental fillings (so-called
"silver fillings") and then eliminated by the body through hair, urine, feces and so on. Notably, I consistently found
very high mercury levels in the hair of people who had mercury fillings. That's no doubt because mercury fillings
cause mercury contamination of the bloodstream that feeds hair follicles.
(I may, in fact, re-do this entire experiment in the near future with a larger data set of willing people to find out just
how strong the correlation is between mercury fillings and mercury in your hair.)
But the point here is that if the Urban Death Project plans to use human bodies as compost, it's going to end up
growing extremely contaminated food that's loaded with toxic heavy metals and synthetic chemicals. This, in turn, will
unleash an accelerating death spiral as the next generation eats the toxic food grown in the toxic compost of the
previous generation. With each successive generation, the concentrations of toxic elements rises and becomes more
dangerous to the health of the community.
Contaminated food produces more dead bodies for the
It's not rocket science to realize that if you grow food using composted human bodies that are contaminated with toxic
heavy metals, then you get a toxic food supply that causes even more disease and death.
This is not in any way respectful of the natural cycles of life. In fact, it is really aspiral of toxicity and death that will
only concentrate the toxic heavy metals with each iteration of dead bodies being composting in the system.
From a scientific point of view, if a society is composting human bodies and human waste back into the food supply,
that same society is inadvertently accumulating toxic heavy metals into higher and higher concentrations with each
successive death. Over time, this creates an acutely toxic compost system giving rise to an acutely toxic food supply
that accelerates disease and death, thereby reinforcing a vicious cycle of poisoning and death.
Much like the Romans likely went mad because of lead in their aqueducts, the Urban Death Project might very well
end in a cascade of disease and death from lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic and possibly even copper (which drives
people mad when consumed in chronically high quantities) contaminating the food supply.
Who gets to drill out all the teeth?
From a practical standpoint, the Urban Death Project could theoretically eliminate a significant portion of toxic
elements from the system by drilling out the teeth of the deceased and separating teeth matter into a hazardous waste
containment system to be disposed of somewhere else. (The Nazis did this too, but they were looking for gold, not
However, even the process of drilling out these teeth -- which would be incredibly gruesome -- is also extremely toxic,
exposing the workers to airborne mercury particles which can be easily inhaled and absorbed into their bodies. When
they die a premature death from working as "mercury extractors," all their inhaled mercury is also added to the human
compost system.
Drilling out the teeth is only one step in this process, however, and it may not be enough. As I mentioned above, lead
tends to accumulate in bones. Cadmium accumulates in skin and arteries. Pesticides, pharmaceuticals and personal care
synthetic chemicals accumulate in skin, hair, nails and organ tissue. Unless the Urban Death Project plans to skin the
bodies of dead people, extract their large bones, shave off their hair and pull out all their nails -- a task that seems
incredibly gruesome and blatantly undignified to the recently deceased -- they are not going to be able to avoid the
accumulation of extremely toxic chemicals and heavy metals in the compost that feeds the food crops.
If you grow corn in the human body compost, in other words, you get TOXICORN laced with mercury, lead, cadmium
and whatever other chemicals or metals got absorbed by the corn plant. Who knows... this might even be worse than
eating GMO corn!
Truth be told, nearly all dead bodies in modern society as too toxic to recycle into food even if you wanted to. Sure, it
all sounds "Greenpeacy" and holistic and aligned with "circle of life" thinking, but if you look a little closer at these
bodies, you'll discover just how toxic modern humans really are in terms of total chemical burden.
And yes, I know there are some people who think you can pray over these dead bodies and transmute toxic chemicals
into loving chemicals (or whatever). Sorry to burst the bubble on this myth, but such ideas are pure bunk. You can
meditate all you want -- even for a lifetime -- and you'll never be able to change mercury into zinc. Or lead into gold,
for that matter. To get lead out of an ecosystem, you have to use physical solutions such as plant
remediation(growing plants that are especially good at latching on to certain toxic elements in soil). You can also use
ion-exchange technology, similar to what I incorporated into the invention of a dietary supplement called Heavy
Metals Defense (which binds and "captures" toxic heavy metals during digestion).
The Urban Death Project really is a death project after all
Thus, I propose the Urban Death Project, as much as it appears to be coming from a place of holistic intentions, is
nevertheless a bona fide "death project" that will cause widespread sickness and death if carried out as currently
This is not necessarily due to any failure in the thinking of the architect who designed the system, mind you. The
project is impractical because modern-day humans are simply too toxic to turn into plant food (even if you wanted
to). This Soylent Green, in other words, wouldn't be approved by the FDA for human consumption. (How's that for
hard core irony in a polluted world?)
If you think farm-raised shrimp is toxic, that's nothing compared to crops grown on modern-day human compost.
How composting could become forced euthanasia
And then, of course, there's the whole realm of ethics. In China, where black market organs are readily bought and
sold for profit, political prisoners such as Falun Gong members (a meditation group) are routinely arrested, imprisoned
and killed for their fresh organs. Corrupt members of the government commit false arrests for the purpose of padding
their own pockets with the profits of those organs as they are sold for black market transplants. (Anyone who thinks
there's no such thing as a black market for organ transplants has never looked into the medical history of Steve Jobs...)
In a society where the Urban Death Project provides a substantial portion of the nutrients needed to grow food that
keeps members of society well fed, it's not very difficult at all to imagine a young, hungry population invoking
"Democracy!" to achieve a majority vote for the forced euthanasia of the elderly so that their bodies can be tossed into
the composter. After all, today's society has already lost sight of the very concept of individual rights and human
rights as protected by the Bill of Rights. The push for vaccine mandates, for example, is predicated on the frightening
idea that the state owns and controls your body, and that any medical intervention desired by the brainwashed masses
can be forced upon people against their will... even if it's dangerous and sometimes deadly.
With all the human depopulation talk coming out of the mouths of people like Ted Turner and Bill Gates, it's also not
difficult to imagine a world where citizens are required to turn themselves over to the "recyclers" upon reaching the
age of 70. Or 65. Or whenever the government decides it can no longer afford to keep sending out social security
checks and Medicare reimbursements.
And that's how the Urban Death Project, despite being paved with good intentions, could very easily become the
Urban MASS Death Project that's used by the government to greenwash mass murder. What do you think about all this? Katrina Spade is into permaculture (yay!) and ecologically sound architecture. Does
her Urban Death Project idea have merit? Sound off with your comments below. But remember, your government is
now reading everything you post online, and politically incorrect comments will get you thrown into the urban
death composter vats ahead of schedule...

NOLA Airport Attacker Has Died, Was Carrying Bag With 6
Molotov Cocktails…
Three shots to deliver the tax payer relief shot. Update to this previous story.
The machete-wielding man who attacked two Transportation Security Agency workers at a New
Orleans airport was carrying a bag holding six Molotov cocktails, officials said.
Officials said they don’t know what suspect Richard White intended to do with the homemade bombs
or what triggered the incident.
“As you know this was unexpected incident involving a clearly troubled and disturbed individual,” said
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu at a Saturday afternoon press conference.
White, 62, chased the two Transportation Security Agency workers at New Orleans International
Airport with a machete and wasp spray late Friday. He was shot multiple times by an officer, police
Officials said they noticed White had been carrying a bag when they checked surveillance video after
the incident.
In the bag they found six half-pint mason jars with cloth wicks. The jars were filled with gasoline. The
bag also held a barbecue lighter, Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand said.
Normand said as the bag was being checked other investigators from the Bomb Squad were combing
through White’s car parked on the airport ramp. They found in the trunk an acetylene tank, a freon
tank and an oxygen tank.
Normand said investigators don’t know what White was doing with the tanks. He said White was

Pink Slips: 100,000 Jobs Wiped Out Amid Oil Price Collapse: “Spreading Like Cancer”

Low oil prices are good for America according to President Obama. In
fact, he has personally taken credit for the savings you’re experiencing.
In a normal economy lower prices at the pump would certainly help to
spur growth in other sectors. The problem, of course, is that the new
normal means that oil companies and banks leveraged heavily as prices
rose. They assumed, like real estate speculators ahead of the 2008
crash, that the price of oil could only go in one direction. As we’ve seen
in recent months, however, oil speculation is exactly that and despite
our dependency on black gold the energy industry is not immune from
massive price swings.
The consequences will be two-fold and the cracks are already starting
to appear.
First, according to a new report from Zero Hedge, over 100,000 jobs
have been lost globally as a result of lower oil prices and more are pink slips are coming:
The bloodletting among the oil majors and their vast web of ancillary services has of course
extended to the United States – which appears to be taking far more casualties than Saudi Arabia
in the battle for marketshare. In January oilfield services giant Baker Hughes said it will lay off 7,000 employees,
about 11 percent of its workforce; that number was rivalled only by its competitor, Schlumberger, which let go 9,000
workers. Shell, Apache, Pemex and Halliburton are among major oil companies to issue recent pink slips to the growing
army of unemployed oil workers. In the U.S., the worst pain is, not shockingly, expected to be felt in Houston. Assuming
a one-third reduction in oil company capital expenditures this year and 5 percent in 2016, the hydrocarbon capital of the
world could lose 75,000 jobs, in a city that has added 100,000 new positions every year since 2011, said a professor at
the University of Houston.
The oil jobs nightmare is in fact spreading like a cancer. According to Swift Worldwide Resources,
“the number of energy jobs cut globally has climbed well above 100,000 as once-bustling oil hubs in
Scotland, Australia and Brazil, among other countries, empty out,”Bloomberg reported recently.
Keeping in mind that the job growth seen in America since the 2009 recession came primarily from the oil and gas industry, the
fact that tens of thousands of high paying jobs are being eliminated does not bode well for the economy.
The American economy typically benefits from lower oil prices as consumers keep more change in their pockets when visiting the
gas pump. But these days those paltry savings don’t go very far considering that prices for food are rising and health care costs
are through the roof.
But job losses are only part of the story.
Earlier this year we warned that the rapid drop in prices could cause the most destructive economic situation since the Great
Depression, an argument explained in detail by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog:
The big Wall Street banks did not expect plunging home prices to cause a mortgage-backed securities implosion back in
2008, and their models did not anticipate a decline in the price of oil by more than 40 dollars in less than six months this
time either. If the price of oil stays at this level or goes down even more, someone out there is going to have to absorb
some absolutely massive losses.
It has been estimated that the six largest “too big to fail” banks control $3.9 trillion in commodity derivatives contracts. And a very large chunk of that amount is made up of oil derivatives.
By the middle of next year, we could be facing a situation where many of these oil producers have
locked in a price of 90 or 100 dollars a barrel on their oil but the price has fallen to about 50 dollars
a barrel.
In such a case, the losses for those on the wrong end of the derivatives contracts would be
Should the price of oil not rise in coming months it could well be the trigger for the next big collapse of the economy and stock
As we saw in 2008/2009, such a collapse could very quickly spiral out of control and create a negative feedback loop with more
job losses, panic in credit markets, significant drops in real estate, and more emergency measures from the government.
Even jobs that many consider to be recession- or depression-proof are at risk. That’s why unemployment preparedness ahead of a
personal disaster is absolutely necessary in the current economic climate.
Job loss is one of those personal emergencies that can strike without warning. Those who have been affected by
unemployment know all too well of the stress involved in this “personal economic collapse”. That said, steps can be
taken beforehand to buffer and prepare your household for this unexpected and unwelcoming disaster.
Via: Unemployment Prepping: What You Can Do Beforehand Even if oil does recover we’re still in a heap of trouble from an economic, fiscal and monetary standpoint. Start making preparations
today, because once disaster strikes it’ll be too late.
