Anticipation of the New

    Art by Christopher Ulrich


2012 is one of the most anticipated and hyped years in our lifetime. Expectations are that it's going to be a passionate ride and hanging on tight during this roller coaster excursion is all we can do when the bolts are coming loose and the big curve is just up ahead. "Interesting times" may be a curse to some but for many of us, it's exactly where we need to be.

Thanks to everyone who visited and contributed to this little 'sideshow' over the years. We are humbled by all those who through their words and actions are committed to making a positive difference in our world.

May the coming year bring you all much love and major steps forward towards the peace our hearts desire.
See ya there.



  In Memoriam {Ring out, wild bells} 

            by Alfred Tennyson
 Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
 The flying cloud, the frosty light;
 The year is dying in the night;
 Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

 Ring out the old, ring in the new,
 Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
 The year is going, let him go;
 Ring out the false, ring in the true.

 Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
 For those that here we see no more,
 Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
 Ring in redress to all mankind.

 Ring out a slowly dying cause,
 And ancient forms of party strife;
 Ring in the nobler modes of life,
 With sweeter manners, purer laws.

 Ring out the want, the care the sin,
 The faithless coldness of the times;
 Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,
 But ring the fuller minstrel in.

 Ring out false pride in place and blood,
 The civic slander and the spite;
 Ring in the love of truth and right,
 Ring in the common love of good.

 Ring out old shapes of foul disease,
 Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
 Ring out the thousand wars of old,
 Ring in the thousand years of peace.

 Ring in the valiant man and free,
 The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
 Ring out the darkness of the land,
 Ring in the Christ that is to be.

Leaving the Room





When the walls start closing in...
Some decide to leave the room.







Debs was an amateur artist. Trying to be creative is something we always respect in a person. It never matters how 'good' others may perceive their endeavors, it's the fact they made the attempt and that's good enough for me.

Debs was my deceased brother-in-law's 1st ex-wife. Their daughter in Florida called this morning saying that her mother 'left the room' Christmas Eve doing the overdose last walk and dance. She left a note. She also left 3 children, 4 grandchildren and one on the way. She had problems and chose the door of no return.

The whys are beyond our comprehension. If those around had understood, they may have been able to change course but that's hindsight, a too often guilty obsession with what could have been, thoughts that burn.


It's seems strange that we were mentioning the scourge of pharmaceuticals in the last post and then came word of Deb's demise. By her own admission she suffered with long term depression and was no stranger to the doctors' dope. She obviously had enough at hand to end the pain.

After the initial shock, anger and hurt ..... judgement of her most personal last action will fade. Forgiveness always makes for better memories.

We Are The Pez People



The candy has a dispenser. It is plastic and cheaply made but it looks cute and it's cool because everyone thinks so. It doles out the dope one sweet taste at a time in measured doses that slowly melt in our mouths so we don't overload. The effect is cumulative and we rarely notice.

The Pez has various versions. 




Looking at pharmaceutical statistics, which are probably low, we see the Pez dispenser with the most action to be Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen with over 131 million prescriptions a year. That's a lot of dope.

Too much acetaminophen can cause liver damage so the good dope scientists are coming up with a new hydro pill without it that's packing up to 10 times the amount of hydrocodone as existing 'medications' such as Vicodin. It's time released but we're already being informed not to worry because by crushing it we can get the full rush immediately. Since hydros are now being passed around like Pez candy, the lovers of this this type of 'pain relief' are licking their chops in anticipation of the new and improved.  Not that hydros can't have legitimate and perhaps positive uses for some folks but I'm looking at a brave new world of getting fucked up for the masses. Forgetting your troubles and cares is getting a powerful makeover. Overdoses create medical industry jobs and thinning the population is a plus so that's not a problem.

It's probably not a coincidence that the announcement of the coming availability of pure hydrocodone coincides with Omega Laboratories, Inc. announcing that it has become the first and only laboratory to receive 510(k) clearance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Extended Opiates Test that detects the use of Oxycodone and Hydrocodone through human hair analysis. For workplace safety of course and besides that the probation racket will love it. People pay by the week or month for being on probation and drug violations result in sometimes a jail sentence but more often an extension of probation that brings in more cash to the judicial scam.

I've mentioned before about a friend who has MS. He tested positive twice for marijuana at the local hospital's disability doctor and was told never to come back.  Violation of protocols. They were giving him a script for 240 hydros a month but self-prescribing medicinal weed which actually helped was not to be tolerated. Luckily he had the option of going to another doctor at Vanderbilt in Nashville who told him "Hey, if pot helps keep doing it." They let him keep the hydros too. The downside is that Acetaminophen liver damage from the Vicodin's probably won't put a 50 year old MS patient on disability at the top of the list for a transplant. As a useless eater funded by the government, he's disposable. The new 'pure' hydros may prevent early liver failure but I don't really think that's their main purpose. Might as well smoke the weed and have some sort of semblance of a life, don't you think? The Feds are buying off the local cops who take their side in the 'fight' against the medical marijuana industry in California so anyone who may benefit from this natural asset continues to be pegged as an enemy of big pharma and unconstitutional federal mandates trying to override state's rights. The government drug runners hate the competition.

A lady in our family is going into the hospital after the first of the year. The doc says it's to get her weaned off of some of the 21 drugs she's now taking daily. The Pez dispenser has been working overtime; Xanax, Paxil, hydros, blood pressure and cholesterol pills, etc. etc. She has been told she's in the early stages of Alzheimer's at 72 years old and has been falling a bit too often and has even been known to fall asleep during phone conversations among other anomalies.  Multiple legal drug abuse is killing her. The weaning off some of them will end up just substituting others. Pharma's Pez dispenser won't be emptied, only refilled with different flavors. A joint, a glass of wine and a natural organic diet would probably work better but of course that's not going to happen.


The big Pez dispenser is not just made for dope. It gives us frequency adjustments. As vibrating beings we are certainly affected by specific frequencies that we are inundated with; TV, phones, wi-fi. Perhaps just a little brain damage that keeps us pleasant and compliant, free of worry and anxiety, free of introspection and free of troublesome memories. "But we can't do without these frequency gadgets" the Pez people say. Maybe not but it comes with a price.

Speaking of TV, the media and their handlers want to control their own little Pez dispenser. Daily doses of toxic words and images handed out as candy, repetitive and refilled as needed. The remote has an off button but our fingers don't seem to find it. For many the tube is our only lifelong friend. It's always there for us. No critical thinking necessary.


The Pez dispenser spits out our politicians. Uniform, continuous clones of the last ones. GM corn syrup and additive laden.  Deadly and dangerous. Created on the assembly line of the damned. The fluoride water can't wash the taste out of our mouths but we pretend it's just the way it is and there's nothing we can do about it.


The Pez people aren't really dumb. They've just been manipulated and altered to be that way. We do have choices but we sometimes forget what they are and tend to keep pulling the Pez dispenser out of our pocket and flipping the lid out of habit.

They make a good collector's item as a reminder of how we pay for our own poison but perhaps it's time we quit buying the refills. Our mental, physical and political health will be much better off.

Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it


The title is words directly from Ron Paul taken from a video made by a supporter who tries to make a point about Paul's foreign policy of bringing the troops home. The video has gone semi-viral and although there is some truth is in it, the main concern and buzzword is blowback. It even early on shows one of the twin towers exploding - no building 7 footage though -  but the message is still that Arabs did the deed. Blowback is a valid concept in that we do create more enemies each time we occupy and kill in foreign lands but I'm just tired of hearing the 9/11 official story being repeated in one form or the other. It's infuriating. Paul and his supporters are so afraid of telling the whole truth in fear that it would spoil his electability. I do understand why they do it but it doesn't mean I'm happy about it. It's another example of the means justifying the end I suppose. Politics as usual.

Criticisms and support of Dr. Paul come from all over. In the alternative blogs we find James and AP discussing Paul's monetary policies and how they are somewhat misguided knowing what we know about who controls the gold, b'man is quite emphatic that we are being set up and aangirfan weighs in with the questions of why Paul would continue to be a Reagan apologist in the aftermath of the carnage since his administration. On the flip side we have Video Rebel , John Friend and WRH, among others, saying that Dr. Paul is the only hope we have to avoid World War III and the bankers new world disorder. I think it's safe to say that the only thing we're going to agree on is that all the rest of the candidates are proven traitors to this country, Obama included. Elections are painful instead of a celebration of democracy, the republic and hope for the world.

It's not a matter of who the American people want as president. It's who those in the background want. The bankers want a puppet who will allow the continuation of the plunder. The war contractors want a puppet who will keep their industry of death intact. Other major string pullers have their own agendas. The wild card is who does Israel want?

Who will continue the policies of A Clean Break and PNAC and the complete balkanazation of the Middle East? Israel has not gotten this close to their 'dream' to let it slip away. Iran, Syria and Lebanon are the missing pieces and if Venezuela and Cuba can be added to the mix so much the better for the neocons and zionists. The bottom line is that all the candidates will allow it to happen. In the unlikely event of Dr. Paul winning and following through with his threats to cut off Israel's aid and end the ongoing wars, it could force Israel's hand. One of the whores of Babylon, Michele Bachmann, made the observation that Paul would allow a nuclear attack on the U.S. before he would do anything because she knows that with their back to the wall, Israel would pull the false flag out again and the wars are on again. A big question is why Israel would think that they could survive a major war? Maybe they're not supposed to? The centers of power possibly could still exist without them, world population would be reduced and the narrative of 'victims' would add a new chapter to further the one world dictatorship. Slowly but surely a number of Israelis are waking up to the fact that unless they change direction they won't be around much longer anyway so the end game may need a push before that idea takes hold. Some jews have no problem sacrificing their own for the benefit of a few. Some Americans don't either. Those at the top of the planning always think they have an escape route. They may be wrong.

The splintering of the Republican party with the infighting and name calling brings up what could happen if no one comes out to be a clear cut leader with the potential of beating Obama. The convention could reject them all and draft someone else. Jeb Bush has been mentioned but that's a long shot. Michael Bloomberg is a possibility along with Chris Christie who continues to get face time in the MSM and his first official overseas trip as governor will be to Israel next year. As strange as things are getting, I wouldn't be surprised to see a drafted nominee who doesn't have the baggage of the primaries and would jump right into the debates with Obama with little time for a protracted analysis of their past. Still, any one of these would be Israel first, America second.

I see the last three presidential elections as having a designated loser. The winner was chosen in advance; Gore, Kerry and McCain were never meant to win. That brings up the question ... has Obama pleased his masters enough for them to want him back or will there be a new president? Only the electronic voting machines and those that control them know for sure.



A Ron Paul Christmas?

In a few days many of us will gather together with family and friends to celebrate something or the other and talk will turn to politics sooner or later. Even if some in the family want to enforce the 'rule' of no politics or religion on holidays like some in my family do, the 'rule' will be broken. The fussin' and cussin' about government and politicians is going to happen and Ron Paul will come up. What do we say? An undying adulation of the man probably won't change many minds but an honest critique of what he is saying might. We may also have to pick and choose what message will be effective. Around the dinner table is not the internet so sound bytes may have to suffice. I don't know about you but talking about usury, monetary policy, the Fed, a gold standard, contrived debt that can never be re-payed and so on are too often met with blank stares. Voodoo economics is actually a good term for it and not very many are knowledgeable in this type of voodoo. People understand the economy is screwed but the solutions are kept evasive and that's by design.

I'll just start with my standard; "Does the government and media ever lie to us?" I've never met a person who would answer that with a no. Perhaps then on to the wars and possible wars to come. "Aren't all wars based on lies and deceptions?" "Is the cost in lives and treasure worth it if it's all for lies?" Are we willing to risk World War III  or at the least 2, 3 or 4 hundred dollar a barrel oil if we attack Iran?" How will that effect us?" Is ending the 'War on Drugs' in our best interests or do we continue to allow government sponsored drug running and money laundering?" "Doesn't Christianity promote peace?" "Didn't Christianity negate the idea of the 'chosen ones' and their supremacist myths?"  "Does render unto Caesar mean we just ignore lies, fraud and killing?" "Does speaking out against the war mongering thieving government and their banking masters justify the possibility of be detained indefinitely without charges to silence us and as an example to keep the rest silent?"

Whew ..... getting a little wound up there. But maybe that's what it takes.

Will I promote a Ron Paul nomination to those who still vote within the system? Yes ... if only to keep the anti-war, pro-humanity narrative alive. Just to have the issue of Israel 'on the table' no matter how limited is worth it. No other candidate will dare to do anything but grovel at the jews feet and unfortunately Ron does a bit of that himself by recognizing Israel as a legitimate state and by not denouncing groups such as AIPAC and the ADL as foreign agents who work against the majority of Americans and their interests.  Where we think Dr. Paul is wrong, we'll point it out. Where he is afraid to go, we will go. We can expand the ideas beyond what any politician is willing to do. We have little to lose by doing so and it's getting late. The lessor of all evils is not the best option but please, someone point out what else we can do at this time besides not voting at all or opting out of the system entirely which for most is not going to happen.  Dr. Paul may be controlled opposition. He definitely is the designated dissenter of the moment. He is not the 'savior.' It really rests on our actions and to paraphrase ... "Citizen, heal thyself."

Black Swan

"Image by AZRainman.com"


Nassim Nicholas Taleb's book, 'The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable,' is an interesting take on the 'outliers' of history.

The short and sweet is:
A black swan is a highly improbable event with three principal characteristics: It is unpredictable; it carries a massive impact; and, after the fact, we concoct an explanation that makes it appear less random, and more predictable, than it was. The astonishing success of Google was a black swan; so was 9/11. For Nassim Nicholas Taleb, black swans underlie almost everything about our world, from the rise of religions to events in our own personal lives.

 Why do we not acknowledge the phenomenon of black swans until after they occur? Part of the answer, according to Taleb, is that humans are hardwired to learn specifics when they should be focused on generalities. We concentrate on things we already know and time and time again fail to take into consideration what we don’t know. We are, therefore, unable to truly estimate opportunities, too vulnerable to the impulse to simplify, narrate, and categorize, and not open enough to rewarding those who can imagine the “impossible.”
Taleb makes a lot of good points in his work and he's worth reading but his website title, Fooled by Randomness, does not speak for an ever growing number of folks. When it comes to manufactured 'events' for political and monetary gain, nothing is random. As far as I can tell, Taleb considers 9/11 a 'black swan' but still portrays it as an Arab 'terrorist' attack. Without including elements of rouge governments and 'hidden hands' as being the perpetrators of 'black swan' events, he falls short in telling the whole story.

9/11 certainly took most of us by surprise, it did have a massive impact and in hindsight we have put together a plausible and factual narrative to explain it but there was nothing random about it. Some of us realized on that day what it was even without having the answers and by July 7, 2005 with the London bombings, a great number knew without a doubt that the 'black swans' were out for another round.

The explosion of the internet in the last ten years has negated the concept that certain kinds of 'black swan' events are unpredictable. Speculations and predictions seem to have covered any event that could possibly happen when there is a political aspect.  No need to repeat them, you know what I'm talking about.

The mini 'black swans' are bothersome. They're continuous and so often transparent. but whose effect is supposed to be cumulative. The Breivik and Liege affairs are examples of late. These are slow change agents designed to work in the background long after the story has faded from the collective conscious.

Any major 'black swan' will be seen for what it is, a black flag, a false flag, a deception that only hopes to work on those who don't as yet care enough or are just too stuck in their mindset to see past the lies.  No matter. Some will be screaming out at what it really is, both online and out in the streets, telling everyone who will listen or not. This screaming along with some gentle persuasion as needed will have an effect. Everyone will not be fooled all of the time.

A big show 'black swan' perhaps can only be accomplished by shutting down portions of that pesky internet and controlling the message. That might work somewhat but would also confirm to even some fence sitters of a cover up in the works. Plans are being made to make sure that there are laws in place to censor whatever those who stage the events want. 

Lawless Internet is crushing U.S. creators says a congressperson. She should know. Her 'creators' are worried that their control is not yet complete. As long as we have a breath in us.....  it never will be.

History Lessons

Khazars




"In Khazaria, sheep, honey, and Jews exist in large quantities."
      Muqaddasi,
      Descriptio Imperii  Moslemici
      (tenth   century).






Dr. Ashraf Ezzat reminds us that the highest profile 'invented' people in history are the jews. Perhaps the highest profile 'invented' event in history is the holocau$t. Without an understanding of unvarnished history, how can we understand the present?

Just in case we may see an end to the internet as we know it, there are some pdf copies of important books that need to be saved for posterity. Buy them if you can afford it because they will be found in few libraries. If so inclined download while you can. Countering the myth of the 'chosen ones' is a basic tool in the battle to save humanity from the Khazarian deception.

Shlomo Sand and Arthur Koestler, both 'jews,' present impressive historical documentation refuting the tales of the Old Testament and any blood link between whatever Hebrews may have existed thousands of years ago to those of Israel today. One criticism of Sand may be that he has not delved into the actual history of the 'holocaust' and perpetuates the zionist exaggerations as evidenced by his statement "Today the descendants of the Jews of "Yiddishland" live mainly in the United States and Israel. The remains of millions of others are buried beneath the slaughterhouses constructed by Hitler in the twentieth century." {page 277} That said, his work remains a must read.

The Invention of the Jewish People by Shlomo Sand
The Thirteenth Tribe by Arthur Koestler


Excerpts from "The Invention of the Jewish People"
National mythology determined that the Jews—banished, deported or fugitive emigrants—were driven into a long and dolorous exile, causing them to wander over lands and seas to the far corners of the earth until the advent of Zionism prompted them to turn around and return en masse to their orphaned homeland. This homeland had never belonged to the Arab conquerors, hence the claim of the people without a land to the land without a people. 
This national statement, which was simplified into a useful and popular slogan for the Zionist movement, was entirely the product of an imaginary history grown around the idea of the exile. Although most of the professional historians knew there had never been a forcible uprooting of the Jewish people, they permitted the Christian myth that had been taken up by Jewish tradition to be paraded freely in the public and educational venues of the national memory, making no attempt to rebut it. They even encouraged it indirectly, knowing that only this myth would provide moral legitimacy to the settlement of the "exiled nation" in a country inhabited by others. 
History deals with books, not with things, a "patriotic" scholar might argue, having spent his or her entire life interpreting religious, governmental and ideological texts produced in the past by a paper-thin elite. This is true where the traditional study of the past is concerned. But the advent of anthropological history began, slowly but surely, to corrode the simplistic Zionist metahistories.
The construction of a new body of knowledge always bears a direct connection with the national ideology in which it operates. Historical insights that diverge from the narrative laid down at the inception of the nation can be accepted only when consternation about their implications is abated. This can happen when the current collective identity begins to be taken for granted and ceases to be something that anxiously and nostalgically clings to a mythical past, when identity becomes the basis for living and not its purpose—that is when historiographic change can take place. For now, it is difficult to predict whether the Israeli politics of identity will permit, in the early twenty-first century, the emergence of fresh paradigms for the investigation of the origins and history of Jewish faith communities.

 No Jew who lives today in a liberal Western democracy would tolerate the discrimination and exclusion experienced by the Palestino-Israelis, who live in a state that proclaims it is not theirs. But Zionist supporters among the Jews around the world, like most Israelis, are quite unconcerned, or do not wish to know, that the "Jewish state," because of its undemocratic laws, could never have been part of the European Union or one of Americas fifty states. This flawed reality does not stop them from expressing solidarity with Israel, and even regarding it as their reserve home. Not that this solidarity impels them to abandon their national homelands and emigrate to Israel. And why should they, seeing that they are not subjected to daily discrimination and alienation of the kind that Palestino-Israelis experience daily in their native country?

To understand current Zionist politics, replace the word "aliyah" with "diaspora." Today Israel's strength no longer depends on demographic increase, but rather on retaining the loyalty of overseas Jewish organizations and communities. It would be a serious setback for Israel if all the pro-Zionist lobbies were to immigrate en masse to the Holy Land. It is much more useful for them to remain close to the centers of power and communications in the Western world—and indeed they prefer to remain in the rich, liberal, comfortable "diaspora."

But if it is senseless to expect the Jewish Israelis to dismantle their own state, the least that can be demanded of them is to stop reserving it for themselves as a polity that segregates, excludes, and discriminates against a large number of its citizens, whom it views as undesirable aliens.

The Jewish supra-identity must be thoroughly transformed and must adapt to the lively cultural reality it dominates. It will have to undergo a process of Israelization, open to all citizens. It is too late to make Israel into a uniform, homogeneous nation-state. Therefore, in addition to an Israelization that welcomes the "other," it must develop a policy of democratic multiculturalism—similar to that of the United Kingdom or the Netherlands—that grants the Palestino-Israelis not only complete equality but also a genuine and firm autonomy. Their culture and institutions must be preserved and nurtured at the same time as they are brought into the centers of power of the hegemonic Israeli culture. Palestino-Israeli children should have access, if they wish it, to the heart of Israeli social and productive centers. And Jewish-Israeli children must be made aware that they are living in a state in which there are many "others."

 And now the last, perhaps the hardest, question of them all: To what extent is Jewish Israeli society willing to discard the deeply embedded image of the "chosen people," and to cease isolating itself in the name of a fanciful history or dubious biology and excluding the "other" from its midst?

In the final account, if it was possible to have changed the historical imaginary so profoundly, why not put forth a similarly lavish effort of the imagination to create a different tomorrow? If the nation's history was mainly a dream, why not begin to dream its future afresh, before it becomes a nightmare?

I'll Never Do It Again



Like a little kid who just got caught stealing and begs his mama not to spank him, Eric Holder stated in the House Judicial Hearing that "the tactics used during operation Fast and Furious would never be used again by the Justice Department" and that on the distinction between lying and misleading Congress, Holder said it was a matter of a person's "state of mind."

That's reassuring. 


Holder earned his stripes as a cover up agent in the Clinton administration working under Janet Reno to stifle the truth about the Oklahoma City bombing and the related murder of Kenneth Trentadue. Holder's role in Clinton's pardon of Mossad asset billionaire criminal Marc Rich shows how eagerly he will bow to Israeli lobbying and bribery. 

Holder was one of many to be interviewed in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 and as Attorney General continues the coverup of that event to this day. Commentary from this video:
Eric Holder was chosen because they planned to rape justice and Eric is the right kind of criminal. The person in charge of the Justice system in America is the same person that runs {aids} Al-CIAeda planning to attack Americans on Christmas in Portland or Detroit. The reason you will never see justice for the real crimes being committed against Americans is because Eric represents another form of "justice." Obama runs Al-CIAeda, and Eric Holder is Al-CIAeda's lawyer. Eric Holder protected the Mumbai mastermind with a fake trial in Chicago. Eric Holder staged a fake spy swap for the media, using the justice system as a game for a show. Eric Holder was part of the Lockerbie bombers legal paperwork "release." Eric Holder is a top "inside job" suspect, for 9/11, The USS Cole, and the Bombings at the US Embassy's in Africa, front and center starring in the whole Bin Laden show.
What is pathetic about the house 'furious' hearing is that some are using it as an agenda for more gun regulations against honest Americans in the name of stemming the flow of weapons to Mexico. Although Holder said he will pursue prosecutions of those under his watch if laws were broken, the administration's ultimate policy is to disarm citizens out of fear that one day they may feel the need to take a stand against the police state's disregard of the constitution and Bill of Rights and overall government criminality.

As serious as this 'gunwalker' issue is, and make no mistake - this was not a sting operation but deliberate trafficking for reasons yet not clear, the house hearing was a sham. We will not be seeing hearings about the money draining scam of the 'War on Drugs,' the ever expanding drug running of the CIA and other governmental agencies with protection of Afghan opium crops and heroin producing facilities, drug money laundering by all of the big banks and the kickbacks to politicians who allow it all to happen. We won't be hearing a word from Congress about Obama and Holder's promise to end the Bush-era attacks on sellers of medicinal marijuana and the patients who use it which turned into nothing but lies.

Holder and cronies make Rod Blagojevich look like an amateur. Few of the top criminals are even investigated much less go to jail.  'Walking' is what those do who are so entrenched in the corrupt system that they are above the law.  The 'gunwalking' is minor compared to wall street and war crimes in terms of both lives and theft.


Another crime boss, Jon Corzine, also testified before Congress today on the MF Global 'failure.' Not being under indictment he didn't exactly say he would never do it again but did blame it on his his predecessors' bad financial decisions, said that he never intended to break rules requiring to safeguard client funds and that he doesn't know what happened to an estimated $1.2 billion that went missing.

I think his testimony qualifies him to be the next chairman of the Federal Reserve.



There's one guy who will not say "I'll never do it again."  That would be the Newt. He will do it again and again, especially when it comes to his subservience to Israel and jewish money. 

He's working to free Jonathan Pollard, would relocate the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and promised to reappoint war whore John Bolton to the UN ambassadorship. Newt is falling all over himself to outdo Romney for more of the jewish pot of gold.


As with so many who have sold out and are Israel firsters, Newt has his 9/11 connection.

    From Michael Collins Piper:
Gingrich has an unusual connection to Larry Silverstein, a controversial figure whose name has been in the forefront of the circumstances surrounding the cover-up of 9-11.

While in Congress, Gingrich benefited from the lucrative Israeli-connected activities of his then-second wife, Marianne, who was on the payroll of the Israel Export Development Company (IEDCO), which promoted the importation into the United States of Israeli products—even as Gingrich was using his influence as a member of Congress to advance U.S.-Israeli trade.

The aforementioned IEDCO was an operation run by mob-connected Silverstein, the billionaire owner of the World Trade Center towers at the time of the 9-11 tragedy.

IEDCO’s Silverstein once even admitted to The Wall Street Journal that Gingrich was one of a number of members of Congress who was lobbied to support Silverstein’s company’s proposals—when his wife was on Silverstein’s payroll. more     {Marianne Gingrich Denies Israel Job Is a "Political Payoff" 1995}

Please ... someone reassure me that the primaries won't be rigged to give Gingrich the nomination, that Corzine won't walk free to steal again and that Holder and Obama and Congress will be held in check and not allowed to sabotage what's left of this country.

I know, you can't. The whole political system is a crime scene and for lack of a better answer ... it's our fault.

Old Pearl Harbor, New Pearl Harbor, Pearl Harbor's to Come



"When you realize just about everything you have been told all your life is a lie, you are on the right track."
         dublinmick




70 years since Pearl Harbor and many things stay the same. Wars are conspiracies. All wars are of lies. Wars are for profit. Few benefit, many die.

The so called 'greatest generation' was a great hijacking. Bodies for bankers. Planned destruction with the leaders in place to make sure it goes down. The rich get richer, the poor get dead. Repeated on and on.

Pearl Harbor was 'let it happen on purpose.' 9/11, the new Pearl Harbor was 'make it happen on purpose.' The next Pearl Harbor to lead us into more wars will also be a set-up, a death trap where 'the end always justifies the means' as the psychopaths say.

Butcher is a term used when it happens to Americans. When we dish it out ... Dresden, Hiroshima, Eisenhower's death camps, My Lai, Fallujah, etc. etc. etc., it is called a necessity of war or some sort of "Newspeak;"



We rounded up the Japanese Americans in the name of security.  We detained a number of Israelis after 9/11 then we let them go away. Muslims in Gitmo did not fare as well. American citizens could be  next with a few detainees to keep the rest in line. Many will stand by and watch hoping they will be spared and keep silent in despair for what else may be to come. 






History finds a few that speak up and try to stop the madness. After Pearl Harbor Jeannette Rankin was the only congressperson to do so. Before that, on September 11, 1941 (the same day as the ground-breaking ceremony for the Pentagon), Charles Lindbergh warned us in a speech to the America First Committee. Pearl Harbor trumped the anti-war talk. The term 'America First' is now mostly verboten in the globalist banker world but we'll keep using it as long as we can still draw a breath and not just for our own benefit but for the whole of humanity.

So what about the next Pearl Harbor? Can we stop it just by continuing to give the warnings that false flags are are the standard operating procedure of the ruling 'elite?' Or by repeating the truth of history that always repeats itself if we are not vigilant? Maybe not, but the killers and manipulators have to be a little worried that every day there are a few more catching onto their lies. The question is whether we will have what it takes to stop them. It will come first from our hearts and go from there.

Well Shut My Mouth



My favorite local news site to comment on has been The Tennessean. Until today.

Corporate parent Gannett has partnered with Facebook and has mandated on all their newspaper web sites that you must have a FB account to comment.

The article that announced the change had this title and byline:

More media outlets ban anonymous Web comments
Media outlets aim to tame discourse.


As of last night there were almost 500 comments at the article with at least 90% blasting The Tennessean and Gannett for their corporate big brother/sis move. They are all gone/deleted now with only a few facebookers leaving remarks.

As Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said in 2010:
“Facebook is only reflecting the changes that society is undergoing and the loss of privacy is part of that change.”
The 'rumor' that Facebook was seeded with CIA and NSA money and that they are in bed with them is apparently true despite the movie that conveniently left that part out as well as not identifying Zuckerberg as a jew and who actually controls the media, social and otherwise. No surprise there and it wasn't as if we didn't know.

The Gannett logo doesn't even try to hide their mission. "It's all within reach" is talking about data mining and of course censorship and social engineering.

Where the Gannett/Facebook merging has been implemented for awhile, comments have been reduced significantly, sometimes a hundredfold or more which obviously relates to much fewer page hits and you would think some loss of advertising revenue if it is based on the number of views. The financial incentives offered by Facebook to Gannett remain to be seen. We know our tax money is involved through this invasive spying network. We pay for the corporate government entities to gather our data which is sold for target marketing and to keep forever just in case it is ever needed.

We're under no illusions that whatever we say on the 'net can be traced back to who we really are but making it easier for the spooks is something we need to avoid if possible. Make them work for it, not just say "here I am, take me."

For all the respect I have for bloggers and legitimate alternative media it is often preaching to the choir. We have our support group but trying to reach outside this limited area is going to get harder and harder. Comments on the Tennessean previously could be anonymous and if kept relatively civil would not get censored. Heck, my photo for my screen name was building 7. Being one of few who would ever mention 9/11 as a false flag or supporting Palestine and leaving related links may not have ever influenced a single person but I always thought it was worth a try. With an up or down comment rating system I took it as a badge of honor to get a lot of thumbs down when addressing certain issues and bringing out the hasbara trolls from their holes. I don't have a Facebook account so that ends that. It's all about shutting us up. The repression of free speech moves on down the line. A question is just how far will the tentacles of Facebook eventually go?


The passing of Senate bill 1867 is another step to try and shut us up. The ambiguity in interpreting it is by design. Whether or not there will be detaining of citizens by the military is the subject of much talk but the initial purpose of the bill is to more firmly plant the seed of fear that what we say may be used against us.

This will work to silence more than a few. For the rest of us, we'll continue to take our chances.
Shutting up is not our option or in our best interests .... for now.

Cruisin' on the Good Ship Lollipop

 


"In an aspartame world, sweetness is just a cover for poison."











How sweet. A new group called Americans Elect expects to have a presidential candidate on the ballot in all 50 states. They want to 'appeal to voters who are tired of the left-right, red-blue polarization of American political life with an online nominating process to create a centrist, nonpartisan ticket to compete with the two major parties.' 
 
What they are hoping for is that few will dig into their funding and 'management' and what their true agenda may be. Spokesperson Elliott "Karate Chop" Ackerman is the son of AE's billionaire chairman Peter Ackerman, former right-hand man to Michael "Junk-Bond King" Milken, CFR member, chair of the Orwellian named 'International Center on Nonviolent Conflict,' and an Israel firster who may have played a part in manufacturing the Egyptian protests. With a Soros connection AE may be attempting to pull votes from the Repub side and assure Obama's reelection. Of course these globalist neocon neolib think tankers and NGO 'leaders' will 'swing both ways' as the need arises. Surely no American will fall for this Americans Elect scam? Will they?

Not so sweet. The "fun time has started" was what a state attorney said in an email about cracking down on Occupy Nashville. If I were cynical my impression would be that this little guy would be typical of a great number of bureaucratic worker bees that see themselves as above all the rabble rousing crowd.  In reality they are slopping at the trough of the plutocracy and are as expendable as a fattened little piglet.

LA cops not sweet enough? You think?



Ahh, the sweet smell of burning flags in the morning.  The media is glad to play it up, especially when the burners are in Iran. The story behind the story remains to be seen.




In Syria, between the UN, NGO's and Al Jazeera lies, it looks as if the sweet dreams of the gun may soon prevail in the breakup of yet another middle east state for the benefit of Israel. Who else benefits the most?



This guy looks to be in a sweet place but defining the sweet from the poison is all over the map in the good ole US of A.

Current TV (yeah I know, Al Gore's baby) has an excellent new documentary now showing. "The War on Weed" contrasts the medical and decriminalization states of Colorado, Washington and California to the stop and frisk Bloomberg policies in New York City.  It even gets into the O administration's use of the IRS and bank pressure to threaten to put dispensaries in California out of business. And what was up with the short interview with a self professed constitutional 'scholar' and medical marijuana 'expert' who stated that federal law trumps states rights. Well pluck my eye out, I must have read and understood the constitution wrong on that count. Good thing there's always an expert to set me straight. If you live in a backward state some of the 'high' points may be a little discouraging but overall a recommended watch.

The sweet tooth of the police state pushing for indefinite detention of American citizens, or domestic terrorists as some prefer to call them, by the military had a setback. Or did it? It's all so confusing. I suppose we'll just have to wait for the SWAT teams to bust down the door to find out. In one of those WTF moments, Hillary Clinton goes to press Myanmar leaders on lack of internal freedoms. Would that be theirs or ours?

Sweet Mother Of Jesus!!!  State of Israel Sues Occupied Wall Street Movement!  The term ‘occupied’ belongs to Israel exclusively, it's their copyright and no one is going to infringe on it!

The Federal Reserve, out of the sweetness of their heart, is going to print up barrels full of money out of stagnant air "to ease strains in financial markets" and save the world. The Dow surges in a frenzy, babies sigh, mothers cry in joy and the soup lines are put on hold as the pie is passed around. Yum.

The first sweet words from Herman Cain that weren't whispered in some white woman's ear ...  "Stupid people are ruining America." Hard to disagree with that but Herm is definitely one of the stupid ones and he's talking to himself. Not to be outdone by Cain, Newt Gringrich tried to explain his faults by saying  "I cheated on my wives because I love America too much."  Good one Newt, we'll all use that one when we get caught in inappropriate behavior. "Officer, I was smoking that joint because I love America too much." Yeah, that'll work.

"God's always got a custard pie up his sleeve."

End of a Small Era

Every road has an end


Everyone has heard a similar story. A small business, a working class entrepreneur trying to keep some semblance of a middle class existence continues to lose business through no fault of his own until there is no business. The recession turns into a depression for the little man who only wants to work for himself and not be a cog in some sort of corporate machine. Being your own boss means make or break.

For almost six years I've worked right alongside my son-in-law. He's been in business for about 15 years doing what he likes to do. Until 2008 there was never a time without a job waiting in the wings. So successful it seemed like it would never end except on his own terms. Pride in workmanship was never lacking. A bulldozer, a tractor trailer to haul it with and a four wheel drive dually with tools and fuel tank, all paid for, combined with independence, desire and drive should be a very practical situation but as the old say goes, "nothing lasts forever." Tomorrow the dozer is being sold.

The business is not ending because of competition. All the small time full time competition in the area went out over two years ago. Being essentially the local last man standing didn't make any difference. It wasn't because of shoddy work. The work done was equal or better than anyone else. It wasn't because of excessive rates or dishonesty. It was an honest business charging less than most.  No, it was an economic collapse that all along was designed to strip the middle class individual of not only the chance to work but to eventually take everything he had worked for.

These kinds of businesses don't show up in the statistics. There's no unemployment to be paid. It won't even be counted as one of the many small businesses to fall because those that do the counting won't even know. It will be as if it never existed except in the memory of a few.

The up close reasons for going out of business are few and simple. People don't have the money and if they do they are holding on to it for fear of needing it later. Retirees who made up a significant portion of the work and who had money in the stock market scams have lost a big portion of it and don't have it to spend. The unemployed can't afford any kind of work done. They just want work for themselves. Higher diesel and insurance costs cannot be passed on to customers who are barely making it themselves. Advertising was never seen as needed until 2008 and it was essentially a dead expense that brought in few clients in a dying economy.

The seemingly distant reasons are what we all know. The corruptions of Wall Street, government, the Federal Reserve and war are the basics. We are the ones paying for their theft and crimes. Some would say we are projecting blame. I call it as just stating the facts.

To add insult to injury, my son-in-law is selling out for less than the real value of the equipment to get cash to get by on until he can figure out what to do next but it doesn't end there. His tax lady says he will probably owe around 12% in federal income taxes on what he sells. Being forced to pay taxes for going broke should not happen. This is in a country where many billion dollar profit corporations get around paying anything. And where will his tax money go? Oh yeah, interest on debt to the federal reserve.

Myself, I escaped the corporate world after a near lifetime of it. I just didn't want to die in the cesspool that the big corporations had become. Even though I only made a fraction of what I used to, working outdoors was a refreshing relief. The sunshine, the fresh air, seeing things in the wilds of our area - waterfalls, caves, hilltops, forests, nature - that very few ever get to see was an adventure. Sometimes the work was easy, sometimes very hard. We had even expanded beyond excavation and earth construction into other areas just to try and stay busy. I'm going to miss it and don't any idea what I'm going to do next.


It's a fairly typical scenario. There will be no easy or quick solutions. People are not looking for sympathy or handouts. They just want to make a living and support their families. Maybe have a little fun in the process. Getting rich is not the goal for most. Happiness and love of what you do is not too much to ask for.

This is not just the end of an era for numerous individuals. It is the end of an era for the world. Things are changing, and fast, for all of us. What we make of it and what we do to effect positive change is our challenge.
We are up for it. I have faith.


*******

Nostalgia is sometimes looking back and wondering why it is that you have outlived a few of those who were younger and more talented in certain areas than you. 

Remembering some of the best musicians I've ever known. Mark and Alan ... rest in peace.

Criminals Count Their Blessings on Thanksgiving



The Wall Street 'elitists' are so thankful that most of them have not been indicted this year and that the OWS folks are a kinder and gentler group than they are that they will raise a toast with a few glasses of imported champagne for their luck to continue.

The top boys at MF Global give thanks that they can enjoy their turkey while the U.S. Attorney’s office decides whether or not the missing $1.2 billion was just sloppy bookkeeping and that they didn't really intend to steal the money. Jon Corzine's appearance before a US House of Representatives Subcommittee should clear it all up as he reminds them that they are all really brothers in the big scheme of things.

Members of congress are especially thankful that this was not an election. year and they've got a little time to counter the 'throw them all out' talk and co-op those pesky protesters. The end of the world was starting to look good to them.

Jack Abramoff counts his blessings instead of cellmates as he tours the country hawking his book and getting interviewed by all the media, even NPR who now calls him a Washington reformer. He's an expert in corruption and Jack is hoping that his 'confessions' will lift the public's perception of him as slightly better than Newt Gingrich. He doesn't speak of his possible 9/11 connections and a great number of people are thankful for that.

Most folks don't realize it but Israel celebrates Thanksgiving wholeheartedly although it's with a sneer for having to kickback some of the U.S. contributions they receive and they resent the costs of their blackmail campaigns. They seem to feel that it's all owed to them, perennial victims you know, so any thanks they may give is relative.

What might be some of the ways Israelis should be 'thankful?'
From The Council for the National Interest:
American taxpayers give Israel over $8 million per day

Additional financial costs: $3 trillion

On top of this are the costs of the Iraq war: hundreds of thousands of lives & over $3 trillion

Special-interest lobbying.

Israel partisans in the U.S. government and media

Campaigns by pro-Israel funders to engender Islamophobia: to create fear and hatred of Muslims

Israeli-centric news reporting by the U.S. media

Hollywood movies and television shows, which often play a significant role in shaping attitudes and beliefs.
All this and it's still never enough. It's hard to imagine just what it would take for them to say 'thank you.'

The Trolls of  Hasbara have had a good year and should be very thankful for their jobs. With the increase in anti-Israel, anti-zionist talk they have been busy and they should celebrate because the coming year will see even more opportunity for their 'work.'

Bush and Blair are extremely thankful that they have been found guilty of war crimes by the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal instead of in their home countries. They won't be vacationing there anytime soon.  

Obama pardons a couple of turkeys and gave thanks in hope that whoever is the next president will show the same mercy on him for his crimes against humanity. 




Military contractors have had a big year and so it's expected that they party down in thanks. Lots of their products got used up. The talk about cuts to their business have been fake. They continue to be number 1 in the world with exports on the rise.Their 'toys' are big sellers every season.




Big pharma is grateful that ONLY every 14 minutes, a person is killed by prescription drugs. Yippee, pass the pie!

The industrial prison system is blessing counting that the number of those incarcerated in the U.S. is going up, up, up. 2.3 million and rising. No end in sight. A big shout out to the neverending 'War on Drugs' is always in order.

The U.S. nuclear industry is overwhelming thankful that it was Fukushima and not one of their own. Despite the initial flush of reports of danger, the industry thanks the media and government for dropping the subject and for telling us thousands of times how deadly deep frying turkeys can be.

Last but not least, the mainstream media thanks congress and state legislatures for once again not passing any laws prohibiting them from lying about anything and everything they want to and are paid to do. 


For the rest of us just being alive and having friends and family to share some time and a meal with is about all we have left. Although we're thankful for that we still have this urge to shout for something better.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Blessings to all.

What If?




Just the other day I heard a woman say "You know what is the worst thing about growing old? It's looking back at all of the what ifs."

We've all had those moments. It does little good to dwell on them except in the faint hope that maybe we can learn something from them and apply them to the present.

That was then, this is now.


But we'll play along with this theme on this 48th anniversary of the assassination of John Kennedy. The 'what ifs' are monumental.

What if it had just poured down rain that Nov. 22th and the 'coup d'├ętat' had been delayed? What if Kennedy had rallied his protectors around him, thwarted his enemies and had lived?

What if the Vietnam War had been stopped in its tracks, the cold war had warmed, the Federal Reserve abolished, big bankers and secret societies banished to the dustbin of history,  the CIA broken up and Israel was denied its nuclear weapons, lobbying and blackmail powers? What if rule by sociopaths and psychopaths was no more?

What if not only JFK had lived but also RFK and John Jr.? What if 'Camelot' had grown and matured? Could a handful of men and their allies, perhaps those allies being not only the American people but all citizens of the world, have changed the course of history? We know that where we have ended up today is the result of a relatively handful of people so yes, it is possible that a few could have led us in a totally different direction. 

It wasn't to be. Collectively we failed. That doesn't mean history must be forgotten and that 'what ifs' as an exercise in thought should be discarded.

We are here now. We cannot count on a few entrenched in the system to lead us to anything that might resemble humanity . It has to be what we as the majority do from this moment on. Otherwise we will all die with too many 'what ifs' left on the table.

John F. Kennedy. We hardly knew you.

Teachings

Village Voice

Diogenes’ talent for undercutting social and religious conventions and subverting political power can tempt readers into viewing his position as merely negative. This would, however, be a mistake. Diogenes is clearly contentious, but he is so for the sake of promoting reason and virtue. In the end, for a human to be in accord with nature is to be rational, for it is in the nature of a human being to act in accord with reason. Diogenes has trouble finding such humans, and expresses his sentiments regarding his difficulty theatrically. Diogenes is reported to have “lit a lamp in broad daylight and said, as he went about, ‘I am searching for a human being’” (Diogenes Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers, Book 6, Chapter 41).

Diogenes was seized and dragged off to King Philip, and being asked who he was, replied, "A spy upon your insatiable greed." 

Once Diogenes saw the officials of a temple leading away some one who had stolen a bowl belonging to the treasurers, and said, "The great thieves are leading away the little thief."

When people laughed at him because he walked backward beneath the portico, he said to them: "Aren't you ashamed, you who walk backward along the whole path of existence, and blame me for walking backward along the path of the promenade?" 

One day Diogenes shouted out for men, and when people collected, hit out at them with his stick, saying, "It was men I called for, not scoundrels."

Diogenes was knee deep in a stream washing vegetables. Coming up to him, Plato said, "My good Diogenes, if you knew how to pay court to kings, you wouldn't have to wash vegetables."
"And," replied Diogenes, "If you knew how to wash vegetables, you wouldn't have to pay court to kings."


Diogenes was once invited to dinner by a wealthy man. During the evening, one of the guests became so outraged by Diogenes' general behaviour that he began to throw bones at him, calling him a "dog." Whereupon Diogenes got up, went to the guest, cocked up his leg and urinated on him.


"Dogs and philosophers do the greatest good and get the fewest rewards."


He was asking alms of a bad-tempered man, who said, "Yes, if you can persuade me." "If I could have persuaded you," said Diogenes, "I would have persuaded you to hang yourself."

Diogenes stood outside a brothel, shouting, "A beautiful whore is like poisoned honey! A beautiful whore is like poisoned honey! A beautiful whore . . . ". Men entering the house threw him a coin or two to shut him up. Eventually Diogenes had collected enough money and he too went into the brothel.


Diogenes was asked why he always begged. "To teach people," replied Diogenes. "Oh yes, and what do you teach?" people would ask him scornfully. "Generosity", he replied.


In the midst of serious discourse in the Craneum, Diogenes realized no one was listening. So he instead began to whistle and dance about to attract attention. Immediately, people flocked round him. Diogenes stopped and said, "You idiots, you are not interested to stop and pay attention to wisdom, yet you rush up to observe a foolish display."

"I have nothing to ask but that you would remove to the other side, that you may not, by intercepting the sunshine, take from me what you cannot give."


"The sun, too, shines into cesspools and is not polluted."


"We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less."


Diogenes was asked, "Tell me, to what do you attribute your great poverty?"

"Hard work," he replied.

"And what advice can you offer the rich?"

"Avoid all the good things in life."

"Why?"

"Because money costs too much. A rich man is far poorer than a poor man."

"How can that be?"

"Because poverty is the only thing money can't buy."

"Lions are not the slaves of those who feed them, but rather those who feed them are at the mercy of the lions: for fear is the mark of the slave, whereas wild beasts make men afraid of them."




"Most men are within a finger's breadth of being mad."










  


"It is not that I am mad, it is only that my head is different from yours."

An "Occupy" Moment - Rumsfeld Confronted at Nashville Stop on His Blood Money Tour





I call upon you to surrender yourself as a war criminal.” 


Well, that didn't work but it was a good thought.





Thanks to an anonymous donor, four folks from Occupy Nashville paid for the $125 a pop tickets and got to dress up and dine with Donald Rumsfeld on a stop on his blood tour to promote his revisionist history book and to raise money for 'conservative' groups  

All four got to say a few words of wisdom towards Rumsfeld but were quickly removed. No arrests were made.

Despite some of our concerns on how the "Occupy" movement is being co-opted, this was a step in the right direction. Getting out their tents and moving away from the 'designated' protest areas to confront individuals who are at the root of our problems and who dare to show their faces in public should be done at every opportunity. The press will eat it up and as the old saying goes "There's no such thing as bad publicity."

It would have been even better had there been a mention or two of Rumsfeld's role in 9/11 but maybe next time.

My comment left here ....
 Bravo to the "Occupiers." Striking back at the war machine and the trillions spent on the lies of the 'War on Terror' has to be a major point in the discussion of taking our country back from the criminals on both sides of the political aisle.

Anyone remember the news conference Rumsfeld held on Sept. 10, 2001 where he announced that $2.3 trillion was missing from the Pentagon? What happened to the investigation of the 'lost' money he mandated? Oh yeah, the accounting side of the Pentagon was 'hit' the next day, destroying evidence and killing more than a few of the accountants who came in to work that day to start the investigation. How convenient.

Rumsfeld was eyeball deep in the false flag of 9/11 and the cover up. Traitor is too nice a word for him.

The blood money tour and those who pay good money to dine with psychopaths speaks volumes on how deceived certain segments of the population truly are.

We're always being set up

Brigitte Gabriel

"When you find issues/controversies which people love to debate endlessly, which are emotionally inflammatory and which divide the masses into oppositional stances/groups - it is a pretty strong possibility that the controlling elites might be busy behind the scenes, fomenting these quarrels and keeping them alive."
                       a comment from here




There are numerous ways in which we are being set up for purposes of control and some of the main ones are the old divide and conquer techniques.

Nowhere is that more apparent than in our own middle Tennessee area where the building of mosques, lawsuits against them and anti-shariah conferences get not only a ton of local publicity but national as well.

The latest 'event' took place over this past weekend as the Constitution or Sharia Conference. Kicked out from a local hotel the organizers had previously booked, they found a sanctuary to hold it in none other than Cornerstone Church, Nashville's premier Christian zionist stronghold.

This would be the church that found its calling and money when it hired  Pastor Maury Davis, a convicted murderer from Texas. In a state that executes its killers left and right, Davis, who slit the throat of recent widow, a Sunday school teacher, nearly decapitating her for no apparent reason beyond just for the heck of it, walked with barely a slap on the wrist. Davis got lucky when a 'born again' confused deranged juror smelled devil possession and convinced the rest of the jury that a charge of manslaughter was sufficient and he was sentenced to 20 years. Lucky Maury was released after 8 1/2 years due to prison overcrowding and the 'redeemed' murderer began his path of preaching which eventually led him to Nashville becoming the Cornerstone pastor who built up his flock to over 3,000 attendees a week and with radio and TV shows and the subsequent salesmanship and begging for money that allows Davis to live large.

Not to dismiss the possibility that redemption and forgiveness is not possible in this world but one might think that the direction of this 'reformed' killer might be towards peace and brotherhood but it was not to be. Anti-Islam and pro-war with a touch of zionist perversion became the talking points.

Hosting the anti-Shariah conference was not Cornerstone's first foray with invited faux Christian speakers. Hate and war mongers Geert Wilders, Mike Huckabee and Oliver North were previously welcomed there and Huckabee returned the favor, having Davis on his own neocon, Israel first Fox News show.

Promoters of illegal wars find a place at Cornerstone but rumor has it that a parishioner, a terminally ill man whose doctor had told him it would be fine to smoke marijuana if it eased his pain, was kicked out of the church for doing so. So much for compassion being a virtue.

That's a little background on the host. We'll move on to the parasites who feed off the willing host.

The anti-sharia conference was led by Hanah Kahwagi Tudor, aka Brigitte Gabriel, founder of ACT! for America who laid the Islamophobia on thick. Others included Rick Scarborough, founder of Vision America  which seeks to mobilize pastors in the service of promoting 'Judeo-Christian' (code for zionism) values, who had another suggestion for the group. "The greatest grassroots opportunity of all is to get your pastor involved," he said.  Christopher Holton with the Center for Security Policy,  (whose founders include a number of neocon and PNAC figures including Frank GaffneyDouglas Feith and Richard Perle) spoke of legislative efforts in the pipeline including a law that would make it illegal for state pension funds to invest in a foreign company that does business in Iran. Nothing about the Koch Brothers bribery and dealings with Iran though.

Frank Gaffney, in an incredible display of chutzpah, used a Power Point to demonstrate the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood (CIA and MI6 funded/controlled?) into the highest levels of governments. Former FBI agent John Guandolo also presented aspects of the Muslim Brotherhood’s operation of influence on the George W. Bush and Barack Obama Administrations. Guandolo,  who resigned from the FBI when it was discovered that he had been sleeping with a key witness in the corruption case against former Congressman William Jefferson, also said regarding local mosques, “They do not have a First Amendment right to do anything.” and  “They exist to break the law.”   

ThinkProgress even had reporters in Nashville where they interviewed State representative Rick Womick, wild eyed republican from Murfreesboro, who called for all Muslims to be forced out of the U.S. military.

"Personally, I don't trust one Muslim in our military, because they're commanded to lie to us through the term called taqiyya. And if they truly are a devout Muslim and follow the Koran and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they're commanded to kill me."

Womick certainly has the terms down pat in order to make himself look educated in Islamic teachings instead of the hick pseudo politician that he is.

There was an out of state anti-zionist and anti-war Christian group, Strait Gate, who came to Nashville for a protest/educational vigil outside Cornerstone church. Their message of  "Choose Life, Not War"and "Who Would Jesus Bomb" stands in stark contrast to those at the conference. You can read a summary of their visit and confrontation with Pastor Maury Davis here.

The local news sites had a number of articles on the conference. There were hundreds and hundreds of comments posted.  A great number of anti-sharia sympathizers of course chimed in and were countered by many opposed to their bigotry but most of their arguments centered on first amendment rights and religious freedom. True in the constitutional sense and relevant although very very few mentioned that this was basically about divide and conquer. While 'Christians' argued about Muslims and with other 'Christians' and atheists complained about all religions, I saw no one who had anything to say about this all being a set up, years in the making.

Tennessee is a designated refugee relocation area with one of the largest Muslim populations in the country. We are not refugee bashers, many of our ancestors came to this land as refugees, and it would be hypocritical. to deny others the same opportunity but the question has to be asked. Why this area? I don't know for sure but there is a built in bigot population and a great number of folks whose only education on Muslims comes from their teevee screen, right wing talk radio and sometimes their pulpit and repetition is a major aspect of mind control. Were we set up to become a simmering pot of hatred, stirred as needed and used for control and diversions? A centralized location that puts a more rural face on the issue in contrast to urban areas like NY City? It sure seems like it to me.

There's a website, Refugee Resettlement Watch, which has a Nashville category. Warning ... it is biased and often ugly but includes a lot of links where if one is willing to wade through the muck there is some relevant information to be found. One obvious reason for the refugees in this area was for economic exploitation, specifically Tyson in Shelbyville, where there is another of those Bill Clinton connections. Another connection is with the Catholic Charities of Tennessee, Inc. that receives a ton of money from the federal government and the State of Tennessee for their refugee resettlement programs although it appears local communities and even the state have little say so on what refugees come in or where they go. Is any of this important to the discussion? Well, it does explain the numbers and brings in the role of NGO's who are an integral part in all kinds of social engineering agendas. Historically, we were warned about NGO's. The Dodd Report to the Reece Committee on Foundations in 1954 gave us a warning on the manipulation of NGO's, including the Ford Foundation and the ADL, on the education system. Norman Dodd's interview in 1982 with G. Edward Griffin confirmed it. The call for a permanent watchdog committee to keep an eye on these NGO's was squashed by the money behind them. Since then these types of organizations have multiplied beyond simple comprehension and are the force behind numerous nefarious activities including the anti-sharia front groups. We have been and are being set up.

The anti-sharia organizations are nothing more than a psyops. Besides American infighting which distracts from the blatant banker and corporate theft, one main purpose is to keep the middle east wars continuing, identify manufactured enemies for expansion of the wars and moving down the path to Eretz Israel. Voters who can't see through the propaganda put representatives in office who will walk lockstep with the agendas. Two of our own middle Tennessee reps, Diane Black and Marsha Blackburn, are typical examples.


Lastly, I want to point out a very transparent aspect to the Islamophobia talking points. At these conferences and on talk radio these people can go on for hours in their hate fest of Muslims and the rhetoric of Sharia Law coming to take us over. Threats of all sorts are tossed around that never have a chance of taking hold but the one aspect of Sharia that is a real threat to the status quo is never mentioned, never ... prohibition of Usury.

The idea that there could be a world without the slavery of interest on debt is taboo. What would the haters say? That we must protect the bankers? That usury is as American as apple pie? That it's only the crazy Muslims who would even consider prohibiting interest on loans?  Just to use the word in any kind of context might get some folks wondering what it's all about and if they find out that throughout most of Christian history usury was banned as the root of most evils it could lead to discussions that the bankers and their lackeys would not like. Alternatives to usury find the churches silent. It is never talked about in the schools and to even meet people who are aware enough to discuss it is rare. Occasionally there are voices that slip through in the media and it's almost a shock.

Wars are being fought as we speak and rumors of more wars are hyped to make sure usury is maintained. We should think about it. We should talk about it. Doing away with usury is a seed that needs to be planted despite the strong arm of the bankers saying "kill it before it grows."

Being set up at every turn is what we have to deal with. One advantage we have is that there are many who can see through the lies and have this sense of purpose to spread the word with the belief that it will make a difference. It will .....
