The simple truth about John Bolton’s appointment to national security adviser is that the Republicans need Sheldon Adelson’s money in order to be competitive in the coming midterms, and John Bolton is a tool of Sheldon Adelson.

The appointment of course is a complete reversal of Donald Trump’s declaration during the campaign that the Iraq war – which Bolton pushed and still thinks is a great idea – was the biggest mistake ever, and he was against it from jump.

But Adelson was Trump’s biggest donor during the 2016 campaign, and Trump needs Sheldon Adelson’s money to keep Congress from flipping and cutting his throat.

It’s little wonder that any Republican with political ambition was quick to extol John Bolton. Politico reported in February that many of those “desperate” Republicans were trekking to Las Vegas and “gushing” over Adelson because they need him “ more than ever” to try and hold on to the House this year.

Confronting the potential loss of one or both chambers of Congress in the midterms, and struggling to raise money against an energized Democratic base, the party is desperate for Adelson’s millions….

That Politico article mentioned Israel only once, to say Adelson couldn’t attend the shindig because he was in Israel. It never mentioned Iran, either.

But Israel is all that Adelson cares about. Yes he’s pro-choice and socially-liberal, but Adelson supports rightwing Republicans because he is an extremist on Israel. He has been pushing for One Jerusalem and an end to the peace process for 20 years– and Trump duly rewarded his biggest donor by moving the embassy to Jerusalem. Adelson has pushed for the U.S. to bomb Iran. Bolton has pushed for the U.S. to bomb Iran.

Michael Wolff said it was all coming back in December 2016. From a dinner party relayed in his book, Fire and Fury:

Bannon plunged on with the Trump agenda. “Day one we’re moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. Netanyahu’s all-in. Sheldon” — Adelson, the casino billionaire and far-right Israel defender — “is all-in. We know where we’re heading on this … Let Jordan take the West Bank, let Egypt take Gaza. Let them deal with it. Or sink trying.”

That’s just what Bolton says too. Give the West Bank to Jordan, Gaza to Egypt.

The mainstream media have whitewashed Adelson’s agenda, and Bolton’s role as ventriloquist’s dummy. It’s not that they like Bolton, but they leave out the obvious connections to other powers.

This analysis of Bolton and Trump’s foreign policy, by David Sanger in the Times, says that it’s now inevitable that Trump will leave the Iran deal, but it says nothing about Adelson or Israel. MSNBC hosts also ignored the Adelson angle, in a long roundtable dsecribing Bolton as a fearful choice. Chris Hayes was strong against Bolton’s Islamophobia, but he will not touch the Israel lobby angle. On Lawrence O’Donnell’s show, Wendy Sherman warns about a possible “nuclear war” with Iran– and she then says the Bolton pick is an effort by Trump “to keep his base, to try to win reelection.” That’s pure disinformation. The base doesn’t want war, Adelson does.

Oh and Rachel Maddow wants to talk about Russia. Russia has corrupted John Bolton.

This article in the Times cites Senators Marco Rubio, Tom Cotton and Lindsey Graham cheering the appointment, but it would never bring up the Israel lobby’s role in Rubio and Cotton’s political careers. Cotton only got into the Senate with help from Adelson, and $1 million from the Emergency Committee for Israel. Rubio’s career was boosted by Norman Braman, whose big worry is that Israel won’t be around in 50 years.

The only place you will hear about Trump’s placating Adelson with the Bolton pick are on Lobelog and the American Conservative and Democracy Now!

At Lobelog, Jim Lobe and Eli Clifton say bluntly, the choice satisfied Trump’s biggest donor. “Adelson, a huge supporter of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, likely played a critical role in Bolton’s ascendancy.”

At The American Conservative, Gareth Porter says that Trump’s biggest donor scripted lines in his militaristic speech to the UN last October, using Bolton as a go-between.

More than anyone else inside or outside the Trump administration, Bolton has already influenced Trump to tear up the Iran nuclear deal. Bolton parlayed his connection with the primary financier behind both Benjamin Netanyahu and Donald Trump himself—the militantly Zionist casino magnate Sheldon Adelson—to get Trump’s ear last October, just as the president was preparing to announce his policy on the Iran nuclear agreement, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). He spoke with Trump by phone from Las Vegas after meeting with Adelson.

It was Bolton who persuaded Trump to commit to specific language pledging to pull out of the JCPOA if Congress and America’s European allies did not go along with demands for major changes that were clearly calculated to ensure the deal would fall apart….

There was a time when The New York Times was frank about the Adelson connection: when Bolton was under consideration for deputy secretary of state in December 2016.

[H]e enjoys a powerful ally in Sheldon Adelson, the casino magnate and Republican megadonor who favors the kind of hard-nosed posture that Mr. Bolton would bring.

Mr. Adelson’s backing has gone an especially long way with Mr. Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who is expected to take on an important but still undetermined role in the new administration.

But only leftwing and realist sites want to connect the dots today. The question is Why? Why won’t you see Adelson exposed as a pro-choice Israel firster who has caused Trump to flipflop on his antiwar position of the campaign? Because unlike the NRA, which any liberal Democrat proudly runs against (New Jersey governor Murphy, Jan Schakowsky , John Yarmuth), the Israel lobby is still very bipartisan. Adelson is not so different from Haim Saban on the Democratic side. They both are ardent Zionists; they both hate the boycott movement. Only Adelson buys Republicans and Saban buys Democrats.

The liberal media can’t talk about Israel as a driver of our foreign policy because their own executives love Israel. David Cohen threw fundraisers for the Israeli army. Now he runs Comcast, which owns NBC. Gary Ginsberg wrote speeches for Benjamin Netanyahu. He’s a high executive at Time Warner. If these guys were working for Russians, just think of the outrage. But it’s Israel. So it’s considered impolite, or coarse, or prejudicial, to mention these connections. Though the evidence is staring us in the eyes, just 12 years after The Israel Lobby was published. Remember that Barack Obama was accused of anti-Semitic conspiracy beliefs when in fighting for the Iran deal in 2015, he dared say that only one country in the world was against the Iran deal, Israel, but it would be an abrogation of his constitutional duty to think about Israel’s interest.

Now the deal is about to be rubbished by a party that is beholden to Sheldon Adelson, who has said he would rather have served in the Israeli army than the American one, and that influence can only be discussed in the margins.

The stakes couldn’t be higher. Lobe and Clifton warn about a war with Iran.

Adelson got his wish to move the embassy to Jerusalem, but he still hasn’t succeeded in pushing the U.S. into a military confrontation with Iran. Trump and the GOP’s biggest donor may now have installed their man in what is perhaps the most powerful foreign-policy position in the U.S. government, besides the presidency itself. As a result, the likelihood of a new U.S. war of choice in the Middle East has risen dramatically.

Col. Larry Wilkerson, who regrets his role in paving the way for the Iraq war, warns that Israel and the neocons are trying to suck us into a war with Iran, and that analysis doesn’t get reported. Wilkerson is invited on to MSNBC, but not to talk about Israel’s influence.

When he was running, Trump was sharp about Adelson’s money’s influence. He said that he would make Marco Rubio into “his perfect little puppet.”

But Trump needs Adelson’s money, so who’s the puppet now?

P.S. The neoconservatives are all scrambling, trying to distance themselves from Bolton. David Brooks said he’s not a neoconservative, he’s an American nationalist. Josh Rogin says it. So does Bill Kristol, though he’s a friend of Bolton’s and has been publishing him for years. From a Krisrol podcast:

[Bolton is] less interested [than neoconservatives] in democracy promotion abroad. More of a national interest first kind of guy, a little closer to Trump in that respect… John believes in a strong foreign policy, an internationalist foreign policy to be fair, a strong believer in our alliances, a strong believer in our friendship with Israel….but a little less interested as I say in the moral side, or the human rights side of foreign policy and more in the Let’s be tough for America, let’s not let international law constrain us too much.

There are three reasons neocons are saying this. First, they are moving over to Democrats now, in opposition to Trump, whose nationalism scares them ( as it does many Jews). They don’t need Adelson’s money to get ahead, they have other, less-crazed pro-Israel funders. Third, they know Bolton and he genuinely scares them. Even Kristol says Bolton makes him “nervous.” (But as Dylan Williams of J Street says, the difference between neocons and conservative hawks is “a distinction without a difference.”)

  3. Bolton is a great pick. He will remove the Obama holdovers that McMaster kept and will be tough on Iran and make sure we defend our greatest ally in the Middle East–Israel.

  4. Axios reported that Netanyahu told those two countries’ foreign ministers, who had been visiting Jerusalem, that he predicts with “very high probability” that the American president is, in fact, going to follow through on his threat to exit the accord on May 12, the next deadline to waive sanctions under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

    It would be nice to ask the president if he minds Netanyahu telling foreign ministers what the US intends on doing, with regards to ending the Iran deal? But we can’t do that for two reasons:

    One, Trump can’t take questions because he’s busy trying to avoid Mueller. Second–as this piece clearly shows–the press corps does not want to bring up the influence of Adelson and Israel on getting out of the deal. Any more than they did when the Israel lobby was making a full court press on the Bush Adm. to attack Iran in the wake of 9/11. They were silent then too.

    When you demand special privileges for yourselves: ethnic-based immigration policies, border walls, settlements and wars for your own foreign ethnostate, and tax dollars from Americans to pay for all of it, and when you demean Americans who request these very same things for themselves (like a wall) as “nativist” or “racist,” then there’s a word for your behavior: supremacist. When you’re by far the wealthiest group in a society, and you effectively control the politicians with your donations, and when you can destroy someone’s life and livelihood for even mentioning your power, you’re a supremacist and you’re far, far more powerful than anyone should be allowed to become. Americans don’t live in a White Supremacist society, they live in a Jewish Supremacist society. Philip’s been good, but when is he going to start calling things how they really are?

    It’s amazing to me that wealthy Gentiles, like Bezos, Gates and Buffett all take apparently zero interest in the fact that American foreign policy is being corrupted and turned against its own interests. Gates and Buffett are about the most respected men in the world, and they don’t say a thing. What happened to the American Gentile elite? Are they too mild mannered? Totally MIA. Here we are, potentially precipitating *another* war in the Middle East for Israel’s interests, paid for with American blood and borrowed money, and they don’t say or do anything? It’s incredibly irresponsible. But, I fear that they are as oblivious to reality as most Americans are, which is the sad consequence of having a media that is so dominated by one tiny group whose allegiance lies abroad.

  19. Note the Bolton appointment comes on the heels of the Skripal excuse for expelling all those Russians en masse. The real reason for appointing an extreme hardliner is how Russia spooked the West with Putin warning that military hegemony was now impossible due to the next generation of war fighting machines Russia has developed, warning the West to back off in its encirclement. Note that contrary to the story of being due to the Skripal provocation, the Russian consulate in Seattle was ordered shut down to deprive the Russians from knowing what’s happening in important local munitions corporations. Unfortunately we’ve been boxed in by earlier policy mistakes such as Full Spectrum Dominance and the plan to have all world financial transactions occur via Wall Street in a deindustrialized but financialized domestic economy. There really was no Plan B, so a doubling down is taking place as a perceived corrective against the leading resistor nations who won’t submit to U.S. authority. Thus the aggressive Bolton coming to the fore, an unconstructed belligerent who never backs down except on pain of war defeat. Unfortunately history shows that empire building by its nature is unsustainable once it begins to falter, so a likely outcome is hot war. The hardliners think there is no better time for that inevitable war than the present, since failure to act now will miss a window of opportunity that won’t exist later on due to the increasing economic and military strength of those U.S. rivals who are not effectively controlled as its inherited de facto occupied zones from the last world war.

    No doubt, Jews own the Democrat Party and the Republican Party.

    And what does anyone with a working brain and a basic knowledge of lifespans and cause and effect think would have been the eventual end result of a culture based on, determined by, a Judaizing heresy?

    That is WASP culture: Anglo-Saxon Puritanism was a Judaizing heresy. These are inherent fruits, arrived at by natural development, of WASP culture.

    Think you can turn back the clock enough to get to the pure WASP culture that had not been tricked by Jews?

    Mr Archetype WASP Oliver Cromwell will do. And he allied with Jews, taking Jewish money, granting Jews special rights and privileges. And he did so precisely so that he could keep warring against non-WASP natives of the British Isles as well of the Continent.

    The British Empire took that culture of Judaizing heresy around the globe. The US has continued that pattern.

    Basically, what Soros is to SJWism, Adelson is to Zionism.

    Zionist are social justice warriors too.

    Social justice is all about victim class supremacy, or supremacy of rights for special groups, and Israel is loaded with victim cult Jews who demand and receive superior rights from both the Israeli and US governments.

    “Israel refused to recognize an Israeli nationality at the country’s establishment in 1948, making an unusual distinction between “citizenship” and “nationality.” Although all Israelis qualify as “citizens of Israel,” the state is defined as belonging to the “Jewish nation,” meaning not only the 5.6 million Israeli Jews but also more than seven million Jews in the diaspora.

    Critics say the special status of Jewish nationality has been a way to undermine the citizenship rights of non-Jews in Israel, especially the fifth of the population who are Arab. Some 30 laws in Israel specifically privilege Jews, including in the areas of immigration rights, naturalization, access to land and employment.”

Trump promised great relations with Russia, how did that work out? Trump promised to make Japan, China, and South Korea defend against tiny North Korea, but instead has spent untold billions sailing ships around the ocean uselessly in a show of “might” to prevent peace from breaking out.

    Trump communism means Lockheed Martin – always hiring women, latinos, blacks and muslims – will never go a night without sleep since a surplus of fake gold plated missiles will be permanently manufactured night and day.

    Trumps support of Zionism has nothing to do with money as the thread author claims.

    {The Zionist elites thing (think) they can sit out a nuclear exchange with Russia in their DUMBs ie deep underground military bases…}

    Elites, Zionist and otherwise, do a lot of dumb things, but I doubt very much they think they can sit out a global all-out nuclear exchange between NATO/US and Russia. I mean assuming there is no direct hit and they survive the exchange in their underground bunkers, what are they going to come out of their bunkers to? And how long can they “live” (actually just exist) underground? They’ll go crazy in a few months.

    In the worst case scenario, all life on the planet surface will be destroyed and contaminated. You can’t drink the water, you can’t grow food, no bees, no fruit,……nothing. Probably for decades if not centuries.

    “The current carnage in Yemen began when President Obama made a Faustian bargain with the government of Saudi Arabia. The deal was: if you’ll accept our nuclear negotiations with Iran, we’ll support and enable your proxy war against Iran in Yemen.

    A key thing that makes the carnage in Yemen so hard to stop now is continued support of the carnage by many DC liberals. You could say, “support or acquiescence,” but my parents taught me that if you remain silent in the face of an atrocity that you could help stop, that’s a form of support for the atrocity. I can’t speak for what DC liberals were taught about this matter by their parents.”

    Why do Republican politicians run for office? To win, or just to provide big salaries to useless consultants. If their goal is to win, then a motivated base is far more important than a couple tens of millions from Adelson.

    The American people hired Trump to negotiate on their behalf for the America First platform.

    OH NO !!!…poor little Jews had their holocaust museum funding cut from $56,999,500 to $54,000,000.

    PDF]President’s Budget Request – United States Holocaust Memorial …

    May 23, 2017 – Introduction to the Budget Request. For FY 2018 the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) requests $54,000,000, a decrease of $2,999,500 below the FY 2017 enacted level of funding. The proposed decrease will assist in meeting the President’s budget objectives, while still providing …

    BUT NEVER FEAR…..our dear politicans have swooped in to demand the extra $2,999,500 be added back for the museum.

    Lawmakers are furious over Trump’s proposed cuts to Holocaust Museum

    ”A bipartisan group of lawmakers on Friday demanded that President Trump restore $3 million in funding he cut from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in his proposed budget.
    “In our view, the mission of the museum has never been more important, particularly as the number of anti-Semitic attacks around the world rises,” the 64 reps wrote in a letter to the Interior Appropriations Subcommittee, The Hill reported.
    “Now is not the time to cut funding for this national treasure.”
    The letter, spearheaded by GOP Syracuse Rep. John Katko, along with Reps. Stephanie Murphy, (D-Fla.), Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.), and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), acknowledges that Trump has hard choices to make after adding $54 million to defense spending.
    That boost resulted in deep cuts to the safety net and health programs in the president’s proposed spending plan, which has to be authorized by Congress.
    The cut would return the Washington, DC, museum’s budget to its 2016 level of $54 million, a 5 percent decrease, the website reported.
    “Attempts to cut funding for the museum are misguided, and this letter demonstrates a strong, bipartisan commitment to protecting the museum and the educational value it provides to all Americans,” said Sinema.
    Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, said the cut would be a mistake.
    “The US Holocaust Memorial Museum is the most important American institution preserving the memory of the six million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis and educating future generations about the importance of combating hate and bigotry,” he told The Hill”

    I qualify as a WASP. But I’m not sure that WASPs actually exist.

    ‘WASP’ is not a defining identity for most white Americans with a protestant background. We’re too diverse. Too disunified. And besides, most ‘WASPs’ are disconnected from their religious backgrounds.

    Moreover, WASPs cannot actually organize and operate politically as ‘WASPs’. It would be declared racist, parochial, and maybe even criminal.

    Interestingly, the term ‘WASP’ was coined by a Jew.

    For what it’s worth, WASPs do sometimes think religiously, sometimes racially, sometimes regionally, and sometimes politically, but we are a dispersed, disorganized mass with no strong collective identity; at least not today. Today’s ‘WASPs’ are declining in the face of unified, rising and resentful opposition.

    As for the Jews, I think that you are mistaking WASP deference and tolerance for Jews with imaginary WASP enthusiasm for Jews and Jewish domination.

    With the exception of some highly religious WASPs (And they are a minority) the Jews remain a highly ethnocentric (and alien) tribe in the eyes of most Americans, including WASPs–most of whom no longer hold any strong religious convictions.

    When I was a child, there were virtually no Jews in my WASPy neighborhood or my parent’s country club. Then, over 50 years ago, US supreme court rulings abolished ‘restrictive covenants’. Court-ordered desegregation that followed allowed Jews to rise rapidly in American life; and without giving up their strong Jewish identities. WASPs on the other hand gave away the store.

    Even the mild quotas on Jews that were in place at many of America’s top universities were abolished via court order just a half-century ago. This gave ambitious Jews an extraordinary opportunity in the academy. Ron Unz has explored what came next brilliantly.

    Ironically, as ‘quotas’ on Jews fell at Harvard and Yale, new ‘affirmative action’ policies were erected in their place. The winners?


    The losers?


    Nevertheless, even after these court rulings, fraternities at my college steered Jews towards all-Jewish fraternities. And those kosher frats remain.

    After college, the number of all-Jewish lobbies, federations, committees and organizations grew remarkably. Today, Jews slyly self-segregated across all facets of American life. WASPs (whites) do as well; but not in a way that comes even close to the buzz of Jewish activism and Jewish ethnic advocacy. In American life, WASPs been snookered and quietly demoted.

    Interestingly, the barriers between Catholics and WASPs in America are pretty much gone entirely. These new realities render the WASP acronym something of an anachronism.

    But WASPs (whites) remain–like most other Americans–wary of Jewish power and the sharp taboos that Jews manage so skillfully. Weiss generally misses these secondary elements. But these additional ‘facts in the air’ make Jewish power even more formidable than most people–including Weiss–dare to comprehend.

    Weiss, who does great work in general, nevertheless seldom explores Jewish domination of Hollywood and how it is used to advance Jewish supremacism and cultural Marxism as it wreaks havoc on white identity, white memory, and white influence. There’s a war going on, Mr. Weiss. And it’s not just happening in the Middle East.

    Indeed, Jewish power is not as simple as Sheldon Adelson dumping $25 million dollars into one election cycle. Not at all. Jews play not only a decisive role in Hollywood, but also in America’s Deep State. This further strengthens Israel’s artificial centrality in American life.

    Indeed, the case can be made that there is virtually no genuine, organic connection between WASPs and Jews (beyond the modern advent of fundamentalist Christian Zionism). After all, Christianity was a total break from Judaism. And Jews remain an endogamous people.

    The WASP-Jewish ‘alliance’ (if it does exist at all) mirrors the ‘special relationship’ between Washington and Israel. It’s one-way traffic on a Jewish toll road.

    Dazzling Jewish cohesion, planning, execution, and influence has knocked the old WASP establishment off its pedestal. What remains are white figureheads. But they know who’s in charge. This phenomena explains why support of Israel in Washington is both ‘bipartisan’ and unconditional. Jews own the town.

    The WASP-Jewish partnership is something of a myth. Deals have been cut, that’s all. Jewish ethnocentrism has always been, and will always be, a wall of separation between the Chosen People and the rest of humanity.

    I can’t disagree with this. It has a lot of features of an Imperial system, with the best parallel probably being the British in India. They had an internal and external system, consolidating British control of the Indian sub-continent with local alliances and powerful commercial links promoting British economic and political dominion.

    The Empire as such, grew over time with commercial and political dominance arriving piecemeal until it was finally recognized as the “Empire” with full control, and with the social aspects probably being the most interesting.

    The British in India were a small ethnic minority, who held power through an Indian Administration run from London and in alliance with local Indian princes. A whole caste of talented young British people were trained in Britain as Imperial Administrators and took up careers in India, where they joined small local groups of other ethnic British (commercial and administrative) in the “Raj” (e.g. the excellent “Jewel in the Crown” book/TV series). Their identity was 100% British, and quite separate from the natives, with their own society, arrangements for marriage, social rules etc, with the understanding that they were an elite – and that being part of the British elite had its advantages and obligations.

    The natives (the ethnic Indians – with their many castes and divisions) either cooperated with the British or opposed them. Economically, it was to their advantage to cooperate. The Empire was just a fact of life. British administrators and traders were not “evil” – quite the opposite – many were just taking up their reserved places in a system that had been running for generations and were quite well disposed towards Indians and Indian affairs in general, while still recognizing that they were themselves a caste apart.

    All good things come to an end. Imperialism went terminally out of fashion after WW1 and WW2, and British Imperial India went with it. Indian nationalism was already a growing force, with revolts and disturbances increasing in intensity from the mid 19th Century (for example “The Nightrunners of Bengal”, from John Masters’ great series of novels of Imperial India). The British were too few, with the mass disturbances too costly and uncontrollable, so for economic and security reasons the British eventually left India with Indian Independence.

    The ethnic British physically left the Indian subcontinent, although their echo is still there in language and traditions (and also, sadly, with a small group of Anglo-Indians experiencing active discrimination).

    Thank you, Geo. It should also be remembered that Martin Luther, founder of the Protestant Reformation, detested the Jews. This was 500 years ago.

    There is simply no historic or ideological basis for claiming a natural alliance between Jews and Protestants. The allegation is absurd. After all, Nazi Germany was full of Protestants.

    [A special bill to help Swope avoid payment of US income tax was] introduced into the house by Representatives Reed (Republican) and Keogh (Democrat) of New York was an amendment to section 2055 of the internal revenue code of 1945.

    … The bill was jumped over [“a log jam of 500 bills that had priority”] and passed both houses unanimously. There was still another obstacle. The secretary of the treasury, who had opposed the bill throughout, announced that he would advise the President to veto it. The veto could not be overridden because congress was in recess.“Tulin resorted to friends . . . (who) went to the White House. The amendment was signed and became law, Aug. 6, 1958.”

    Most American television news networks are owned by Jews and/or controlled by Jews (CBS, CNN). All except Fox, and Fox doesn’t exactly have a free editorial hand when it comes to Israel. When the ADL, CAMERA and the rest of the Jewish mafia perceives a story as harmful to Jewish or Israeli interests, they come down hard on you.

    Hey Jacques,

    Under M. Whitney’s article about the US Deep State, I mentioned the British cabal who came to control the state in Britain and the strategies they used to achieve domination.
    I also mentioned the Jewish component in the mix… it makes me laugh when some people here pretend that organized Jewry only acquired significant power in the West, after WW2.
    Such a notion is false:

    Count Jerzy Potocki, the Polish Ambassador in Washington, in a report to the Polish Foreign Office in January 1939, is quoted by British military historian Major-General JFC Fuller. Concerning public opinion in America he says “Above all, propaganda here is entirely in Jewish hands…when bearing public ignorance in mind, their propaganda is so effective that people have no real knowledge of the true state of affairs in Europe… It is interesting to observe that in this carefully thought-out campaign… no reference at all is made to Soviet Russia. If that country is mentioned, it is referred to in a friendly manner and people are given the impression that Soviet Russia is part of the democratic group of countries… Jewry was able not only to establish a dangerous centre in the New World for the dissemination of hatred and enmity, but it also succeeded in dividing the world into two warlike camps…President Roosevelt has been given the power.. to create huge reserves in armaments for a future war which the Jews are deliberately heading for.” (Fuller, JFC: The Decisive Battles of the Western World vol 3 pp 372-374.)

    Joseph P. Kennedy, U.S. Ambassador to Britain during the years immediately preceding WW2 was the father of the famous American Kennedy dynasty. James Forrestal the first US Secretary of Defense (1947-1949) quotes him as saying “Chamberlain (the British Prime Minister) stated that America and the world Jews had forced England into the war”. (The Forrestal Diaries ed. Millis, Cassell 1952 p129).

    Sir Nevile Henderson, British Ambassador in Berlin ‘said further that the hostile attitude in Great Britain was the work of Jews and enemies of the Nazis, which was what Hitler thought himself’ (Taylor, AJP: The Origins of the Second World War Penguin 1965, 1987 etc p 324).

    Syria’s shifting sands: RT’s Peter Lavelle interviews former MI6 spook and EU Diplomat, Alastair Crooke. At around 5:44 they start talking about Israel.

    “Trump will be punished by his base at the polls if he goes the militant path of crazy-stupid George W Bush.”

    Trump’s base consists only of zionist billionaires like Adelman. The dimwits who think of themselves as his base don’t even enter into his thinking.

    Well, well, well. Guess what I stumbled upon? It’s a feature length film called Marching to Zion.

    As we all know, one of the key pillars of support to The Lobby are the 50 million strong Christian Zionists. Well, this film delves into the origins of Christian Zionism and analyses the scriptural evidence to see if their claims are valid or whether they are based on distortions.

    While the results will definitely surprise most secularists, it may even surprise a few evangelicals, especially of the PEAbrain variety.


    The most pertinent exchange occurs @ 26:30 of the film. I’ve transcribed this segment for those who prefer the written form:


    Pastor Anderson: It doesn’t matter whether you’re listening to John Chrysostom, St. Augustine, Peter the Venerable, Martin Luther, John Calvin… you name the church father. You name the Protestant leader throughout history. They are all saying the same thing about the Jews: that they’re the Synagogue of Satan, that it’s a false religion. This doctrine that the Jews are still God’s Chosen People is a new doctrine.

    Text Marrs: You know, back before the late 1800s, everybody recognized what we’re talking about now, but something began to change, first with Dr. Cyrus Scofield.

    Pastor Furse: C.I. Scofield was a divorced man. He had trouble with alcohol. He was a lawyer turned preacher. He left his first wife Leontine Cerre in 1883. That’s the year AFTER he wrote his first book “Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth.” So in 1882 he writes his his first book “Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth,” and in 1883 he leaves his first wife, marries another lady, and then becomes a pastor in Texas – very famous, very popular. Scofield’s dispensational, premillennial Bible was edited with financial assistance from prominent businessmen, some of which had questionable religious ties.

    Texe Marrs: He had Jewish retainers who made him a member of a club called the Lotus club – sort of a secret society – and suddenly he had plenty of money. This corrupt lawyer who had abandoned his wife and was found guilty of numerous offenses as a corrupt attorney- but Scofield was given money, and the Oxford group out of England published his Bible. Why would they take a crooked lawyer and make him the editor of a Bible? And then suddenly they had millions of dollars to promote it. With that amount of money, the Bible took off, and it basically sealed the deal for the Jews.

    Pastor Anderson: The Scofield Reference Bible is very pro-Israel, very Zionist, and this book more than any other book changed the thinking of an entire generation of young preacher boys.

    Pastor Jimenez: Another belief that Christians have today, that is an incorrect belief, that is not found in scripture, is the belief that we should bless Israel. They go back to what they refer to as the Abrahamic covenant. They go back to Genesis 12, and they say, “We have to bless Israel if we want God’s blessing, we have to bless them.”

    Narrator: Genesis 12:1-3 is the key scripture where God calls and blesses Abraham. It reads, “Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

    Pastor Anderson: Now according to this scripture, God is making a covenant with Abraham, and he tells Abraham, “I will bless THEE.” The word “thee” is singular. He is speaking to Abraham. Well in Scofield’s notes on Genesis 12, he applies this blessing unto the future nation of Israel. That is not what the scripture teaches. Many evangelical Christians today do not get their doctrine on Israel from anything that’s written in the NT. They are getting it from the notes of the Scofield Reference Bible. When you’re reading these promises made to Abraham in the OT, you have to realize what the Bible teaches in Galatians 3:16, when it says: “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made…”

    Pastor Jimenez: Now if we stopped right there, all the Christians of today, or Zionists, or whoever, could say, “See! It was to Abraham and his seed, but the verse goes on. It says: “He saith not, And to seeds…” (with an “s” at the end, making it plural) “He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.”

    Pastor Anderson: So, according to the Bible, the promises made to Abraham were made unto Abraham and unto Christ, and the Bible says in verse 29: “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” According to the Bible, we as Christians, whether we be Jew or Gentile, are the heirs of the promises made to Abraham. Those today, who are in the ME in the nation of Israel, they are not in Christ. 99% of them do not believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ. Therefore, they are not the seed of Abraham. Therefore, Genesis 12:1-3 does not apply unto them.

    Pastor Furse: People will say, “Well, we’ve got to support Israel if we want God’s blessing on ourselves. If we want God’s blessing on our church, if we God’s blessing on our nation, we must support a physical Israel. Well, if you just count back the last 66 or 67 years of American history, do you find the blessing of God on our country?

    Hi L.K.,

    Today is Good Friday and I will pause to watch Peter Lavelle’s interview ’til tomorrow.

    Now a brief return to the crucifyer’s #1 global “business” undertaking:

    L.K. reflected and wrote # 101: “The real danger is the Zionists are hard at work to get the Zusa to sort things out for them…”

    Hi L.K.,

    Yes — “Hard work” but where’s the pulled pork?

    The real problem & deadly destiny in-store for powerful world Zionists, including U.S. Jewish billionaires & Lobbies, and of course their (semi-elected) government servants can be found in today’s reading of The First Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians (Ct. 1: 18-27). Thought provoking words!

    Below is my take on Paul’s epistle; I ain’t a saint and one can either take it or leave it.

    The foolish wisdom & corresponding crimes of AIPLouisAC’s exalted NeoconMen/Women are destined for “surprise, surprise…” The Almighty’s destruction.

    The 21st Century “Planetarchis” & minions will inflict extreme pain, punishment (up to death) upon, for example, Hezbollah, Palestinians, Iranians, Russian Orthodox and me, but “woe unto them” inevitably comes.

    P.S. L.K., as a reminder, about one year ago, you asked me to post my email address so that you could touch base with me. I posted it on a U.R. comment but the address became history. I am cool conversing as we are, but as you please, I can convey my email address without paranoid qualms. Thanks!

    Hi geokat,

    While enjoying conversatiom with L.K., I brought up the very descript & cool word “Planetarchis.”

    Remember when Greeks were getting punished by E.U. salvation, “austerity”?

    Well, below is a riotous excerpt from Conde Nast Traveler’s (Patricia Storace) interview with ex-ZUS “Planetarchis,” William Jefferson Clinton.

    “CNT: You know, the Greeks call you the “Planetarchis,” the ruler of the planet.
    Clinton: I didn’t know that. I’ve got a piece of marble that broke out of a wall in Athens when there were riots there when I was there when I was president. They weren’t rioting against me. I just happened to be there on the weekend they always riot about their political issues.”

    One can always take comfort in Clinton’s having gotten a piece of “marble” and not those of “Maples.”

    Wish you well!

  106. @L.K

    Hi L.K.,

    Admit to (juvenile) horsing around by inventing the term, “AIPLouisAC.”

    Just wanted to provoke some memory on Louis Freeh’s strange career, in particular 1997, when serving as FBI Director, he opened an office in Israel.

    Forgotten is how knowlegeable & patriotic Americans wanted to investigate Louis on the 9/11 event. I believe his job as the bureau Director was over June 2001.

    Should not do such corny stuff, L.K., and I apologize.

    So, what’s the point of this?

    Penultimate paragraph from Christian Zionism: The New Heresy that Undermines Middle East Peace:

    It is my contention after more than 10 years of postgraduate research that Christian Zionism is the largest, most controversial and most destructive lobby within Christianity. It bears primary responsibility for perpetuating tensions in the Middle East, justifying Israel’s apartheid colonialist agenda and for undermining the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.

    Well, I agree with that, too, although one could quibble with the primarily.

    But who needs “10 years of postgraduate research” to come to that conclusion? You posted a film about the origins of +Zios. That remedy of Thee this or Thee that seems pretty thin. If you have to argue with these Zombies (trust me, their eyes are glazed over by their belief in their ‘salvation’) on their own terms, why not use the heavy [and simple, and obvious] guns?

    If, in the course of assisting God in fulfilling His alleged prophecy…. [do we all see the fallacy there? If it’s really a prophecy, help isn’t required]… Anyway, if these guys are ‘helping’ by violating 4 of the 10 commandments –

    Don’t Kill
    Don’t Steal
    Don’t Lie
    Don’t Covet (your neighbors’ property)

    and the +Zios are abetting the Israelis in all these violations, supplying the ammunition for the killing, no less… and political support for settlements …

    So, when [if] their big Rapture comes, they won’t be going up, anyway.
    This is from grade school Vacation Bible School. No postgraduate research required.

    Jerusalem Post reported a Kuwait story about Israeli Stealth jet fighters having entered into Iran.

    What I’ve heard from people who follow that stuff is that the story is almost certainly a psy-op.

    – The source is, apparently, a well known Mossad mouthpiece.
    – Risking two F35s for a reconnaissance mission like that isn’t worth it.
    – If it happened, and the planes weren’t detected – as the story claims – there’d be more value in keeping the success secret instead of going public.

    My motivation for posting the video was the interesting background story about the Scofield Reference Bible and how the notes may have been distorted to promote a pro-Zionist narrative, something of which I, as most people I suspect, was completely unaware.

  112. anon # 184 wisely wrote: “– there’d be more value in keeping the success secret instead of going public.”

    Hi 184,

    For me, the Mossad is quite unique because it does intelligence & surveillance for its government that falsely claims to be the only M.E. democracy and the entire world knows that it is NOT.

    Throughout the Soviet Union’s history, NKVD & then KGB had no qualms about its citizens knowing they were being watched and subject to arrest. Up unto at minimum Stalin’s 1953 death, the Soviet people’s fear of the “secret police” was advantageously valued by the Politburo.

    Of course, Jonathan Pollard spied-on & conveyed U.S. military secrets to eternal ally Israel and he jail time until Zio pressure to set him free succeeded.

    Fear is a powerful thing.

    Also, within the Starr Report on President Clinton’s “scandalous” lying about Lewinsky’s frequent b.j.’s, it became PUBLIC knowledge that a foreign power had tapped White House telephone conversations. Intimidated, Ken Starr backed-off from naming what country did it! Why?

    So # 184, returning to your quote (above), and in comparison to KGB swagger, I am convinced that Mossad finds value in both their (public) espionage successes & failures in the “insouciant” U.S.A.

    Israeli “psy ops” are so insidiously empowered that it makes little difference whether Mossad operations are kept either secret or go PUBLIC. Today such is ZUSA Empire-subjects tragic fate.

    Thank you!

    Please explain why…….

    Israel is not a democratic country

    Ben White does a good job explaining it in his book, Palestinians in Israel: Segregation, Discrimination and Democracy.

    He provides a synopsis of the book’s thesis in his article, Beyond the ballot box: how Israel’s ‘Arab voters’ are second-class citizens:

    Finally, aside from the attempts to undermine the political representation of, and mobilisation by, Palestinian citizens – beyond the ballot box – Israel maintains a legal and political framework of racist privilege that Israel’s apologists would consider beyond the pale anywhere else.

    As I detail in my book, ‘Palestinians in Israel: Segregation, Discrimination and Democracy’, Palestinians are treated as second-class citizens in every area of life (and recall that for almost two decades after Israel’s creation, they were subjected to military law)…

    This is by no means a comprehensive list. To respond by saying ‘Arab Israelis can vote’, ‘there are Arabs in the Knesset’, or ‘an Arab is a Supreme Court judge’ is no response at all: it is cynical tokenism, or, at best, a demonstration of a profoundly shallow understanding of what constitutes ‘democracy’ and what defines the relationship between a state and a citizen.

    As Adalah’s summary of the Israeli elections put it, “racism was the most victorious ballot.” Contrary to what some have maintained, this is no betrayal of Israel’s ‘principles’ and ‘traditions’, but entirely consistent with them. Yes, Palestinian citizens can vote – and they are also second-class citizens in a ‘Jewish state’.

    The British empire flourished after the Jews arrived. Anti Jew, pro Jew, neutral on Jews, no one can deny that the GB empire began during the same century the Jews arrived.

    Post grad research about Christian Zionism?

    All you have to do is slouch in the couch and watch the religion TV channels and get on the “help the starving homeless old lady holocaust survivors in Israel and Russia” sucker list

    If you live in the south east or Texas, just go to the nearest baptist or evangelical Protestant church and listen to the preacher.

    This last month every TV channel has been inundated with “ celebrate Passover and Easter by sending money to feed and house the starving homeless clothed in rags old lady holocaust fraud survivors in Israel”

    Channel 17 in my area has 24/7 pro Zionist Christian pro Israel programming. It’s in California which is certainly not an evangelical baptist fundamentalist Christian Zionist state.

  121. Alden says:

    Israel has had several sponsors in the last 150 years. First Turkey, then Britain, for a short time Russia and since the death of president Kennedy in 1963 the idiot United States.

    Christian Zionism began around when the Israelis and AIPAC began giving the south east/ Texas Baptist fundamentalist and evangelical Protestant preachers millions of dollars and numerous trips to Israel.

    That was about the time the baptists holy rollers fundamentalists and evangelical southerners gave up their hatred of Catholicism and the devil in the Vatican and substituted Palestinians for the satanic Catholics they preached against for 500 years.

    The time was right and AIPAC money talked.

  122. Alden says:

    Can you post it on Christian Zionist bible study evangelical fundamentalist Baptist church of god etc websites?

    I sort of live in an atheist bubble. I find it hard to believe people believe that collection of myths and fairy tales based on the Mesopotamian story of Gilgamesh. But I guess they do

  123. Alden says:

    I think geo posted the video because it is anti Israel propaganda using the same bible that the Jews and Christian zionists use to defend Israel.

    It might be helpful to convince those Old Testament obsessed Protestants that god really didn’t want ancient judea recreated on the bones and blood and property of the Palestinians who are the actual descendants of the ancient Jews of bible times.

    Just look at the timeline of the Old Testament and one sees that the Jews had a Jewish kingdom for only about 200 years. The rest of the last 3,000 years israel was nothing more than a meager province in a foreign empire.

    1,000 BC. David conquers the canannanites, Solomon

    850 BC End of the Jewish kingdom becomes part of Assyria

    500s BC becomes part of Babylon

    325 BC becomexpart of the Greek Empire.

    50 BC becomes part of the Roman Empire.

    330 AD Constantine splits Roman Empire into Rome and Byzantium Palestine becomes part of Byzantium.

    650AD Muslim conquest Palestine ruled by Arab Muslims

    1100. Palestine conquered by Seljuk Turks. Couple hundred years later Palestine conquered by ottoman Turks.

    1922 AD Palestine becomes a British colony with an official separatist Zionist atheist communist Jewish Agency. The Jewish Agency is an organization of militant atheist communists who are ethnic Russian Jews

    Atheistic communists as long as they are Russian Jews are the heroes and saints of Christian zionists. Interesting.

    1948 AD Zionist American Jews swarm the United Nations bribing, threatening extorting and blackmailing the delegates to vote in favor of creating the modern Jewish state of Israel.

    Enough S American delegates accept the bribes and or succumb to black mail and extortion to supply the votes to recognize Israel.

    The delegates were threatened and bribed. The garmento and furrier New York Jewish mafia gave the S American delegates wives expensive clothes hats and mink coats to help the bribery along.

    Of all the Latin American wives, only the wife of the Cuban ambassador to the UN refused the monks and clothes.

    So dearly beloved Old Testament bible thumpers, that is how your adored Israel came into existence.

    1918 massive bribery of Winston Churchill to ensure British government approved settlement of a separatist group of Russian atheist communists in Palestine.

    1922 to present time massive murder and theft of property of Palestinians by Israeli Jews. I’ll note here that Christian Palestinians have been as badly treated as Muslim Palestinians.

    Indeed, it was a Greek Christian bishop who led the first uprising after the Russian atheist communist Jews took over Palestine.

    Many biblical and ancient history scholars claim that Judaism was created in Babylon cerca 500s BC.

    Martin Luther loved the Jews at first.

    In fact he often stated that in addition to founding a non catholic version of Christianity, another purpose of his reformation was to convert the Jews to his version of Christianity.

    It was only after years of attempting to convert the Jews that Luther turned viciously against them. Luther was also vicious towards the baptists and others who created their own versions of Protestant Christianity. After Munster was re taken, he demanded that all the Munster baptist rebels be executed. That was thousands of Baptists.

    Luther wrote that anti Jewish pamphlet because he failed to convert them to Lutheranism.

    Luther hated Catholics, Jews, Baptists and all other versions of Protestant including Henry 8 Church of England.
    Not all great men are good or nice.

    It’s interesting that Luther started his Protestant go back to the Old Testament
    movement shortly after a visit to Rome.

    Rome had a very large and influential Jewish community at the time. Given his early attempts to convert Jews and the Protestant emphasis on the Old Testament; I’ve always wondered if he contacted Jews when he was in Rome.

    Something for religion historians to explore.

    The “beginning of the end” of traditional Catholicism was sealed with the infiltration of the Catholic Church “Vatican II Ecumenical Council” of the 1960s by Jews and Protestants who were involved in the “modernization” of the Catholic Church.
    Much Catholic ritual and doctrine was discarded or changed, in order to reflect the “age” that we live in, as well as the promotion of the absolution of the Jews for Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and death, despite vitriolic Jewish hatred of Jesus Christ and Christianity which exists to this day. The fact is, the Jews DID get the Romans to crucify Jesus Christ and DID accept full responsibility for the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ. As is the case today, they got others (Pontius Pilate) do do their “dirty work” for them…
    Abandoning the use of Latin in the Mass destroyed its “universality”. Previous to Vatican II, one could attend Mass anywhere in the Roman Catholic world and understand the meaning of the Mass.
    Prohibition of the celebration of the Tridentine Mass (except by special ecclesiastical permission) pushed many Catholics away from the new “Modern Mass” and the New Church, in general…It took a brave Archbishop Lefebvre and the Society of St. Pius X to “push back” against Vatican II and re-legitimize the celebration of the pre-Vatican II Tridentine Mass and other Catholic rites.
    In pre-Vatican II times, the priest (celebrant of the Mass) was considered to be a part of the congregation, and a representative of the people.
    By turning the priest around to face the congregation, the priest was no longer a representative, but an “actor”, diminishing his status and importance.
    One area where the Catholic Church could improve itself involves celibacy, which is NOT Church “dogma” or doctrine. Celibacy was put in place during the middle ages in order to keep Church property from being inherited by family and relatives of priests and bishops. Celibacy was based on purely financial considerations–nothing more. It is interesting to note that Episcopal (Anglican) priests who convert to Catholicism can bring their families with them to the Church while Roman Catholic priests are denied marriage.
    It was a grave mistake by the Church to de-legitimize pre-Vatican II principles.
    Fortunately, there are Catholic organizations that subscribe to pre-Vatican II principles, one being the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX).
