The Disclaimer

Because of the sensitive subject matter discussed here, i think it is prudent to preface this article with my standard disclaimer regarding racism:

I am not racist, nor do i hate anyone based on their religion, color, history, beliefs, appearance, etc., nor am i currently or have i ever been a member of any race-centric organization, including the Nazis, neo-Nazis, skinheads, KKK, white supremacists, etc., nor do i view my race as superior to another, nor do i view myself as superior to others. If you are familiar with the philosophies of people like Peter Joseph and Jacque Fresco, which is basically one of harmony with all others and the Earth, than you know essentially where i stand.

The Mafia

There exists a Sicilian Mafia. There exists a Russian mafia. Does speaking of these criminal organizations implicate the Italian or Russian people as a whole? Of course not! These organizations consist of a tiny subset of mostly Italians and Russians, respectively. Similarly, there are also Jewish criminal organizations. As with any other organized crime network, when i speak of the Jewish-Zionist criminal cabal, also referred to as the Khazarian Mafia by some, i am not implicating the Jewish people as a whole, but there is a most troublesome taboo regarding anything that could be remotely construed as being critical of Jewry that does not exist with other groups..

While one can openly criticize the Sicilian or Russian mafias, despite the fact that many Jews were key or well-known members, including Meyer Lansky, Jack Ruby, Hymie Weiss, Bugsy Siegel, Semion Mogilevich, Monya Elson, Marat Balagula, Vyacheslav Ivankov, Vladimir Ginsberg, Ludwig Fainberg and others, exposing the names and activities of the Jewish-Zionist criminal cabal is a very slippery slope that is laden with land mines. While using the words “Italian” or “Russian” to describe the criminal activities of a few Italians or Russians is acceptable, one must be extraordinarily cautious when using the words “Jew” or “Jewish” when associating a few Jews, or those calling themselves Jews, with similar activities. Even when one chooses their words with the utmost caution, there remains a very real risk of being targeted by powerful pro-Jewish, pro-Zionist organizations, such as the Anti-Defamation League or the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee, which are eager to label anyone critical of Jewry in general as being Jew-hating, Nazi-loving anti-Semites, unless it is a Jew doing the criticizing, in which case the label “self-hating Jew” may be applied.

The pressure applied by international Jewry upon the governments of many countries, including Austria, Belgium, Bosnia, Czech Republic, European Union, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Switzerland, has resulted in legislation which has placed limits upon free speech in those countries. Once one studies Jewish history and Zionist ideology, it becomes crystal clear why free speech is one of the most significant threats to the Jewish-Zionist criminal cabal who, in direct violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, lobbies to suppress free speech under the guise of preventing “hate speech”. Currently pressure is being applied in Canada, Italy, the United States and other countries to circumvent the peoples right of free speech. Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states:

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

I will close this section with the following quote from Kevin Alfred Strom:

To determine the true rulers of any society, all you must do is ask yourself this question: Who is it that I am not permitted to criticize?

The Forum

Project Avalon is a website run by Bill Ryan. The core of the site is the Project Avalon Forum where a wide variety of topics are discussed, many of which are related to the social and political problems we face today. Membership is restricted and involves submitting a lengthy application which asks for personally identifying information. This application is then reviewed by the moderator team and, i assume, Bill himself.

I once had a great deal of respect for Bill Ryan. He was a core member and, as i recall, co-founder of Project Camelot along with Kerry Cassidy, though they would later part ways. Project Camelot is rather well known among the alternative information and conspiracy communities for its large collection of video interviews with various whistleblowers, many of which are highly interesting and provocative. The interviewees consist of wide array of people alleging to be contactees, whistleblowers, people who worked in deep underground military bases (DUMBs), spiritual healers, intuitives, remote viewers, ex-government contractors, Illuminati insiders and others. The list is long and includes names like Steven Greer, Bob Dean, Jordan Maxwell, David Wilcock and Jim Humble. While the credibility of some of these people cannot be questioned, it is not so clear in other cases and Kerry will often readily admit this, thus leaving the viewer to decide for themselves. Much to their credit, Project Camelot has never retracted an interview unless forced to do so far as i am aware.

Project Camelot was instrumental in the earlier years of my research into a variety of subjects, the study of which eventually resulted in an awakening of sorts or, more accurately, a radical transformation of my entire world view. Kerry represents the spiritual side of Camelot while Bill, during his time there, seemed to be more of a science-based guy, but with a very open mind. He seems to have gravitated more toward the spiritual end of the spectrum at some point, which i think is great, except that he apparently left behind some basic principles of science and logic in the process, as i shall demonstrate later.

Together Bill and Kerry made an absolutely brilliant team in my opinion, complimenting each other perfectly. They were able to extract more information from a witness than either could have done alone. I didn’t know if there was a romantic element, but i thought they would have made a great couple; Kerry, the intuitive shamanic type who just might bare her teeth if provoked, and Bill, the rough, outdoorsy mountain climber and quintessential gentleman. Behind the scenes however, a tension was brewing that would eventually result in a parting of ways. I was quite saddened when i learned their paths would diverge and, as i’m sure many others did, i wondered whether Camelot would survive the loss of Bill, a crucial member.

At some point Bill Ryan created the Project Avalon Forum where he began to take a somewhat different direction than the Project Camelot platform. In the latter part of May, 2015, i decided to submit an application to join the forum and, after the obligatory approval process, i was quite pleased to have been accepted. Two days later my membership was terminated, making my stay at Avalon probably one of the shortest in the forums’ history.

The Event

Precipitating my demise at the Project Avalon Forum was a thread that was started by Paul, apparently a senior forum moderator, which he titled The Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ — and a call for a more benevolent leadership. Paul’s post referred to a paper written by Miles Mathis titled The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. I thought it was an interesting post but Mathis’ paper did raise a few flags in my mind and so i wrote a reply to his post (quoted at the end of this page) which pointed a finger at the Jewish-Zionist criminal cabal. I made it very clear, as i had done in an earlier post, that i was not targeting Jews in general:

were it just a history thing, i wouldn’t care, but the history given to us by the victors of WW2 and the Jewish criminal cabal (and i am not saying Jews in general) has had, and continues to have an unbelievable (literally) impact upon our lives […]

Because of my perceived quality of the forum, as well as the subjects covered, i had assumed that a), many Avalon members were probably aware of the enormous political and social influence wielded by the Jewish-Zionist criminal cabal who, though they make up a tiny minority of Jews, occupy a significant portion of what many currently refer to as “the 1%” and b), that an Avalon moderator was likely of a higher caliber than other forum moderators in general and would thus be far more fair and open minded. After all, topics in the forum include conspiracy theories, chemtrails, eugenics, population control, mind control, the secret space program, etc.. My assumptions were grossly inaccurate.

My post prompted an immediate backlash from Paul who split the original thread, removing my post and isolating it in a new thread which was not available to the public (it is reproduced below) where he then proceeded to subject me to a virtual water-boarding. In addition, Paul sent me a rather ominous private message stating that i was probably not a good fit for the forum. While it was readily apparent that something very strange had just happened, i wasn’t sure exactly what it was or why. Was Paul offended by my post because he may be Jewish? Or perhaps, like so many of us, he bought into the Jewish-Zionist-allied post World War II programming that we have been subjected to for the last seven decades or so. At any rate, i was stunned and wrote a lengthy rebuttal (also quoted below) to Paul’s nonsensical and baseless accusations in which he essentially pasted the infamous anti-Semite sticky-note square upon my forehead after twisting my words in a childish attempt to make it stick better. Considering the writing i have done regarding Germany’s role in World War II, Hitler, and the holocaust, other than a minuscule number of one-liner hate mails, virtually all of the feedback regarding my work has been either neutral or positive, making Paul’s attack the first real accusation of anti-Semitism that has been leveled against me. I suppose i’ve been christened. Paul’s answer to my lengthy rebuttal was to ignore every question, point and plea i had made:

Your abilities to rationalize your actions, and to misinterpret my warnings, are both considerable.

This is unfortunate.

Paul’s non-answer answer immediately reminded me of this quote:

“Care must be taken not to give a platform for deniers… or seek to disprove the deniers’ position through normal historical debate and rational argument” — Guidelines for Teaching about the Holocaust at the Stockholm International Forum, 2000

The Infiltration

So at this point it was pretty clear there was going to be a rift between Paul and myself and thus i started to question whether i wanted to remain a member of the Avalon community. Before finalizing my decision however, i decided to write the following private message to another moderator, Sierra, who i had picked at random since, other than Bill (and i didn’t see the need to bother him with this), i knew none of the moderators:

do i fit here at avalon?

so i’m “the new guy” and already i have managed to get myself in some “hot water” it appears

my purpose in messaging you is to ask that you direct the other moderators to this thread which explains the situation:
http://projectavalon.net/forum4/show…-Zion&p=963660

i am NOT asking anyone to back me – my statement speaks for itself – what i would appreciate is knowing whether you folks think i fit in with this community, nothing more

is the subject matter which i addressed too controversial for this forum? i guess that is the decision i am asking you folks to make

thank you

Sierra’s reply came a short time later. It was one of Impending Doom:

The moderator’s have seen your thread (it has been reported) and no I don’t think you fit. If you had replaced every single occurrence of the word “Jew” with “Zionist” you might have gained better traction in this moderated community, not to mention greater service to Truth.

Some of the very highest, and best people on Avalon are Jewish. We don’t encourage the ancient and tiresome Blame the Jews Game.

We don’t like the blame game period. Blame breeds hatred. Blame is the classic Illuminati tactic along with fear, to generate war, pain, suffering, and death. Blame is a complete (that’s the entire point) waste of time. If you are busy dealing out blame, you are not working on your own spiritual evolution, now are you?

Regards, Sierra

Ah, so it’s word games we must play; substitute “Jew” with “Zionist” since most people probably don’t know what Zionism is, and point the finger at the illusive Illuminati, whoever they are, rather than the real criminals right under our noses, negatively impacting our everyday lives and wallets, such as the international Bankers who have verifiable names and affiliations and who are at the very center of the Jewish-Zionist criminal cabal. Unfortunately, pointing out the obvious is obviously not allowed regarding certain topics at Avalon since the Jewish community there is tired of the “tiresome Blame the Jews Game“. I get it! Unfortunately i ‘got it’ a little too late. The writing was clearly on the wall and, had i not asked to have my forum account terminated, there is no doubt whatsoever that it would only be a matter of time until i was banned.

Far more importantly, i now had an answer as to why Paul attacked both myself and my post with such vigor; the Project Avalon Forum had been infiltrated by unethical, biased Jews with questionable agendas, or at least some of them fell squarely into this category. Or perhaps Bill knew their motives and took them on anyway. While the latter is pure speculation, he has since “thanked” Paul for his post. While i admit i may be wrong regarding an infiltration, either with or without Bill’s knowledge, i doubt this is the case, as i shall demonstrate.

One of the primary purposes of Project Avalon is to discuss and find solutions to some of problems facing the world today. These problems obviously include politics, finance and the media, all of which are all heavily influenced by Jewish interests. Who would be in a better position to steer the direction of conversation and deflect attention away from the Jewish-Zionist criminal cabal than those who are sympathetic to Zionist-criminal ideology? This is precisely what Sierra attempted to do when she/he made a laughable effort to shift the blame for war, pain, suffering and death upon the “the Illuminati” in her/his private message to me. This tactic of redirecting blame toward invisible foes is also used by people such as Alex “Bullhorn” Jones and other key players in the so-called ‘alternative media’ (and i am certainly not demonizing alternative media as a whole since it is clearly the only outlet for the truth in many cases). When Alex, who is either accidentally or willfully ignorant of historical facts, and i am quite certain it is the latter, is not busy demonizing Hitler and those “evil Nazis” for disarming the German population and putting fluoride in the public water supply to make them docile, as well as for the slaughter of six million Jews, he’s fingering the next best target, the ever-illusive “Illuminati”, a super-secret society that is often accused of running the world and which seems to morph into whatever demon best fits ones cause at any given moment. Of course this makes the Illuminati the perfect tool for deflecting criticism and inciting in-fighting since no one seems to be able to prove whether the group even exists today, much less attach verifiable identities to its alleged members.

There’s something else of importance here that i failed to point out in the Avalon forum thread; Paul’s original post was about a paper by Miles Mathis who Paul sees as “one of the best original thinkers of our time“. The title of the paper is The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and it was published in April, 2015. In it, Mathis attempts to make a case that The Protocols of the Elders of Zion were not authored by Jews at all, but rather by aristocrats, thereby absolving the Jewish elite of the dirty deed. Given what has already been revealed, i find that quite interesting; we have a forum where “Some of the very highest, and best people on Avalon are Jewish” in which a moderator who, at a minimum, is very protective of Jewry, is eager to shift the responsibility for authoring the protocols — a document that has been a constant thorn in the side of Jewry since it was exposed — to non-Jews. As far being “one of the best original thinkers of our time“, let’s consider what else Mathis has written in various articles:

4/17/15, Stephen Hawking died and has been replaced. I show lots of photographic evidence that Hawking died in 1985 and has been played by an impostor since then.

4/3/15, The Boston Marathon Bombing Trial. I show you that the trial, like the event itself, is fake. Included is a brief analysis of the Gabby Giffords shooting, which is related.

2/25/15, The Patty Hearst Kidnapping was Fake. Also related commentary on Clint Eastwood and Dirty Harry.

11/2/14, The O. J. Simpson Trial was Faked, and so were the murders. Lots of photographic and legal evidence.

8/26/14, The Zodiac Murders were Faked. And so were the Houston and Cottingham murders.

8/3/14, Proof John Lennon’s Death was Faked. Also includes a short analysis of Michael Jackson’s alleged death.

6/29/14, The Tate Murders were Faked. That’s right. Manson is another creation of the MATRIX. Over 80 pages of photographic evidence.

6/19/14, The Bikini Atoll Nuclear Tests Were Faked. Easy photographic evidence.

5/31/14, The Lincoln Assassination was another Manufactured Event. I take you through the whole thing, using both old and new evidence.

2/1/14, Your Fake Local News. Fake news, fake murders, and fake trials, in your hometown.

1/6/13, The Alleged Sandy Hook Tragedy. Another staged event.

His titles read like covers of The Enquirer and the above are but a small sampling of quite a long list of articles dating back to some time before 2003. While i will be the very first to freely admit that many things are not at all what they seem, and that i have only skimmed through a few of his papers and have not checked into his background, i suspect his articles are intended to act as distractions, just like The Enquirer, the “Illuminati” and, now, “the aristocrats”. It looks to me as though Miles Mathis, in Alex Jones fashion, is yet another attention grabbing, fear-mongering mouthpiece who provides just enough believable material to keep his fans coming back for more, but whose real intention is to shift focus away from relevant matters of actual importance, like the Jewish Rockefeller and Rothschild banking cabal.

In conclusion, it is my opinion that Bill Ryan and the members of Project Avalon have some important information to share, however i believe it is blatantly obvious that the Project Avalon Forum is heavily influenced by certain core members who are sympathetic to the aspirations of the Jewish-Zionist criminal cabal or, at the very least, have a strong desire to deflect any criticism of “gods chosen people”. In a community where i would have thought truth and honesty were welcome assets among intelligent, open-minded people, i instead found limitations upon the truth and extreme penalties for exceeding them.

The Orbs

Perhaps my debunking of Bill’s “Orbs” thread didn’t exactly win me any friends either…

Note that it is not Bill Ryan that i am singling out here, though admittedly i am casting a bit more light upon him since he is a), the Big Kahuna at Project Avalon and b), has a background in math and science. His “Orbs” thread was 12 pages long when i last checked and full of… orbers? Orbers are also found all over the web. I must also state very clearly that in no way, shape or form am i positing that the provable explanation i provide here for a particular type of “orb” explains every photograph of an orb, however there is no doubt in my mind that it does indeed explain the vast majority of “orb” photographs found on the web. Lastly, i am certainly not claiming to be the first to debunk this type of “orb” phenomenon, as many others have already done so, including some folks in Bill’s own “Orbs” thread, though it appears they were largely ignored since, as humans, we prefer a mystery rather than simple explanations, even when the latter is backed by bullet-proof evidence.

For those that don’t know what “orbs” are, well, it depends on who you ask but basically, for many people, they are anything other than what the type addressed here actually are: floating debris (dust) captured in photographs. Some insist they are spiritual beings, guardians, energetic entities, fairies, probes, etc.. Here is what Bill says in his opening post regarding his experience with “orbs”, emphasis added:

Earlier this summer, I visited a grove of Giant Sequoia in Yosemite National Park with a good friend, another Avalonian. As the sun was setting, we were able to find one magnificent tree – a real beauty – which was not fenced off from the public.

We took a few photos… and were rewarded by a quite dazzling display of orbs. The high-resolution images are linked below (too large to post here)… and the detail is fascinating.

This was not pollen or dust. Immediately afterwards, I took another photo of the same tree without either of us in the picture – and the orbs had completely disappeared.

Here’s one of the photographs Bill included in his post, showing him leaning against a tree, surrounded by “orbs”:

Bill Ryan surrounded by orbs

And here is a crop of a 6 MP image i captured in a darkened hallway by sprinkling baking flour in front of the camera lens. Exposure, ISO and flash were set to ‘auto’:

Orbs created with baking flour
Orbs created by sprinkling baking flour in front of the camera lens (click to enlarge)

Many of us have probably seen large amounts of dust floating through the air in our home when the lighting conditions were optimal, such as during late afternoon when a slice of bright sunlight is cutting through a room. Sometimes one can make out the actual fibers because your eye, unlike your camera lens, can focus on the dust that is illuminated by the bright light. Many “orb” photographs are captured with cameras in low light conditions when its flash is triggered, as both Bills’ and my photographs were, or there is another light source that is lighting up an area directly in front of the lens. In every case of this particular type of “orb” that i have seen, the tiny particles of floating debris appear to be very close to the camera lens, otherwise they would simply not be visible. Because they are so close to the lens, and the lens is focused on something in the distance, the particles are extremely blurred which has the side effect of making them look spherical in shape. Add to this the light they are refracting and you now have “orbs”. If you refer to the image with Bill in it, you will notice that all of the “orbs” are in front of him, rather than some being partially behind him as one would expect if he were surrounded by them.

This next one is an enlargement of the brightest “orb” in the above image. They can look quite interesting, even resembling a tiny, living thing. This one, like many, resembles a biological cell, complete with an outer membrane and nucleus:

A baking flour orb
A single “orb”, which is actually a tiny particle of baking flour

So much for “orbs”, at least those of this particular type. And i was sort of becoming fond of the little guys too :(

Sorry to stray, but i had a fun time capturing “orbs” in my experiments and wanted to share my findings, plus i think the topic is slightly relevant here.

The Disgruntled

While one may see this article as the result of a disgruntled forum member who was essentially given the boot, that is not the case and that is not what this is about. I think there are some very interesting and alarming things going on at Project Avalon and, if you read my other work, it is obvious that exposing hidden things is a sort of a passion of mine. I would also make the following points: 1), i was a member for only two days, so it’s not like i had a lot of time invested in the forum. 2), i was the the victim of a moderator’s wrath and because of the tension which was likely to persist, i wasn’t overly anxious to remain there. 3), i wasn’t banned by anyone until i requested that my account be deleted:

Request to be banned from Project Avalon Forum

The Post

This is Paul’s post which i would later comment on. Paul seems to be a key moderator at the Project Avalon Forum:

“The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” — and a call for a more benevolent leadership

Miles Mathis, in my view one of the best original thinkers of our time, has a new paper out on THE PROTOCOLS of the Learned Elders of Zion (pdf).

Miles (as he usually does) takes a fresh look at his chosen topic. He finds evidence within this renowned document that it was written at the behest of European royalty, in the late 1800’s, who were finding themselves on what would prove to be the losing end of an epic struggle with the Banksters (financially most powerful families). He reads the document as a defense of the benefits of rule by royalty, and an attack on the dangers of rule by financiers.

But then, after spending the first half of this modest (just 12 pages of quite readable prose) paper analyzing the protocols, Miles then takes a surprising (to me) and delightful twist, and proposes a way out of this mess … the first such proposal that I’ve seen that I find persuasive and plausible (sorry Wade F and Dennis L <grin> <hugs>.)

I recommend the above paper to your consideration.

You can find more such fine work at Miles’ website: The personal art and counter-criticism site of MILES WILLIAMS MATHIS. See especially his Updates page to get links to his latest papers and commentary.

The Reply

This is my reply to Paul’s post which prompted the backlash that i was to be subjected to:

“The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” — and a call for a more benevolent leadership

i like this guy – he seems pretty sharp – thanks for the post Paul

ok, so some feedback on this paper …

Mathis thinks that the the Jewish elites would not use the blunt language that is used in the protocols…

In the same way, the title “WE SHALL DESTROY GOD” is overplayed. Although I think the financiers have long been trying to destroy organized religion, I do not think they would put it this way in their own documents. They don’t need to “destroy God,” since they don’t believe in him. They might talk about destroying Christianity, or destroying belief in God, but not about destroying God. For them, that would be like saying WE SHALL DESTROY SANTA CLAUS.

not sure it’s at all important to argue the point, but i would argue the point

here are some quotes from various Jewish-Zionist elites – i have not verified some of these to the n’th degree, but i believe them to be authentic…

“The killing by a Jew of a non-Jew, i.e. a Palestinian, is considered essentially a good deed, and Jews should therefore have no compunction about it.” — Yitzhak Ginsburg ‘Five General Religious Duties Which Lie Behind the Act of the Saintly’, Rabbi Baruch Goldstein, ‘May his Blood be Avenged’

“There is only one power which really counts. The power of political pressure. We Jews are the most powerful people on earth, because we have this power, and we know how to apply it.” — Vladimir Jabotinsky, Jewish Daily Bulletin, July 27, 1935

“Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel. Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat. That is why gentiles were created.” — Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, head of Shas Council of Torah Sages during a sermon delivered Oct. 2010 in Jerusalem

“We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands. We will for ever destroy because we need a world of our own…” — Maurice Samuels, You Gentiles, 1942

then he gets into more into who wrote the document and the blame game…

they are trying to pin everything on the Jews, but we know that all the top financiers are not Jews. So why would the aristocrats imply they are? Because some of the top financiers are Gentiles who ditched the aristocracy and put their cards in with the new money. But since the aristocrats are all about blood, they don’t wish to attack their own.

i just think that’s an important point to remember for those that rail against the Jews, forgetting about everyone else, however there is something more interesting about this statement…

in spite of what i said about putting too much focus on the Jewish elites, they happen to be a very hot topic for me at this particular time – i don’t know where Mathis is from, but in the U.S. there is no doubt the Jewish elite enjoy an extreme degree of control and influence in all major areas, especially politics and finance – no way will one ever win a presidency without the approval and media coverage and financial contributions provided by Jewish lobby groups, period, and this goes back to, and includes, J. Kennedy who made deals with Israel to become pres, which was by a very slim margin as i recall – all went south when he started putting pressure on Ben-Gurion, Dimona and one of the Jewish lobby groups according to Michael C. Piper who wrote a very good book on the assassination which makes a strong, well referenced case for Israeli/Mossad involvement in the killing.

Mathis seems to be saying that the aristocrats are existentially using the Jews as a tool to divert blame, and given the overwhelming influence of the the Jewish cabal in the U.S. and elsewhere, i would have to question that, though, admittedly, i have sometimes wondered if what Mathis is implying is exactly correct, but how can he be correct given the blatantly obvious influence of the Jews in the U.S.?

continuing with the same paragraph…

In this way, they are like the Jews they criticize. For all of them, blood is blood, even after it has committed treason.

not sure i’m understanding this correctly, but if he’s implying that Jews stick together, rather than the aristocrats, he’s dead wrong according to my understanding – for example, there are a lot of anti-Zionist Jews, even in Israel, and many factions of Jews (actually, apparently 80-85% of the Jews calling themselves Jews in Israel aren’t Jews at all, but rather descendants of the Khazars)

If aliens are watching us—as some think—and if they were given permission to break the non-interference clause, they would change human society most quickly by targeting a few dozen people. If they replaced the right 50 people, say, with benevolent look-alikes, human history would reverse overnight.

well, something’s going to have to happen ’cause we ain’t gonna vote our way out

so then he continues with how to speed-up the inevitable by working with and educating (or re-educating) the elites – great, i’m all for it. here’s another solution: ignore them – plant a garden, don’t buy garbage, dump the boob-tube, take your shoes off and go play with the kids outside – the machine will grind itself to death without any assistance

either way, education is key; how can we educate the masses before the whole house goes up in flames?

OR…

are we doing EXACTLY what we are SUPPOSED TO BE DOING?

maybe we’re supposed to be killing and polluting and acting like idiots – maybe that is the entire reason for the human experience – maybe it’s true that there must be balance and you must have evil to have good

personally i think that’s a relevant question, however i also think that it is extremely dangerous to not know the correct answer and since i don’t know the answer, i have to do what feels right and it sure as hell doesn’t feel right so sit back and watch the world burn

The Wrath

Paul’s reply to my post:

Re: Split thread from “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”

My reasons for splitting the above three posts off from the original thread where they were posted, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” — and a call for a more benevolent leadership, are as follows.

That original thread presented a paper by Miles Mathis: THE PROTOCOLS of the Learned Elders of Zion (pdf).

Miles’ paper discusses a well known historical document entitled “THE PROTOCOLS of the Learned Elders of Zion” (which I will term “The Protocols”, below.) In Miles’ paper, he presents the position that The Protocols were commissioned by the European aristocrats who were at the time (late 1800’s) being defeated by some very powerful financial families, some of whom were Jewish. As Miles documents, The Protocols present these aristocrats in a favorable light, and these Jewish (some of them were Jewish) financiers in a dreadful light.

As Miles documents in his paper, The Protocols are (in his words) “a strange mixture of truth and propaganda, and you have to enter the bog with a pretty good map to make it to the other side.”

  • The opening post of this split thread confused a paragraph very specifically discussing whether Zionists would want to DESTROY GOD, with discussing whether Zionists would want to use strong language in general. There is no basis for that confusion in Miles’ paper – even the very paragraph quoted from Miles on this, in the opening post above, makes that very, very clear. Nonetheless, the opening post of this split thread did confuse the two, using the confusion to justify including several incendiary Zionist supremacist quotations. Such a flimsy excuse for such a blatant distraction is not appropriate in my book.
  • The PROTOCOLS of the Elders of the Zion were clearly written during and discussing events over a century ago in Europe, but the opening post of this split thread takes Miles’ paper to task for its lack of a more detailed discussion of Zionist influence on the US in recent decades, saying “how can he [Miles] be correct given the blatantly obvious influence of the Jews in the U.S.?”.The opening post of this thread then uses that confusion to justify introducing several hot button topics, such as JFK’s assassination, Jewish lobby groups, and a book by Michael C. Piper, that have in a time long after The Protocols were written. Such blatant confounding of the historical time line is not appropriate in my book.(Note also the opening post of this thread drops all qualifications such as “financiers” or “Zionists”, and out right targets “the blatantly obvious influence of the Jews in the U.S.”. I am not optimistic that such careless use of language was accidental.)
  • The opening post of this split thread presents the following quote from Miles’ paper:”In this way, they are like the Jews they criticize. For all of them, blood is blood, even after it has committed treason.“It (the opening post) then goes on to wonder whether the quote refers to the aristocrats or the Jews as sticking together “blood is blood”. An even slightly larger variant of that quote would make it transparently clear that Miles was saying that for the aristocrats, blood is blood:”But since the aristocrats are all about blood, they don’t wish to attack their own. In this way, they are like the Jews they criticize. For all of them, blood is blood, even after it has committed treason. Maybe they hope to turn these treasonous Gentile bluebloods back to the true path.“However, the opening post of this split thread uses the excuse that perhaps Miles means is “implying that Jews stick together” to take stabs at the lack of solidarity amongst Jews. Such blatant inability to read is not appropriate in my book.

This topic, perhaps as much as any is both (1) important to understanding our human predicament, and (2) a bog filled (quite deliberately) with numerous landmines.

Accurate reading and historical perspective are vital to these discussions, and to improving our human predicament.

Perhaps the opening poster said it best: “in spite of what i said about putting too much focus on the Jewish elites, they happen to be a very hot topic for me at this particular time”.

Please do not allow the heat of the topic to short circuit logic or discernment, especially on such important topics.

I will endeavor to keep discussions of important topics on this forum productive, and to keep out, by whatever measures are necessary, disruptions that are more driven by heat than by logic or discernment. Thread splitting, as I have done here, is just one of the several tools that we have available to us.

The Rebuttal

This is my rebuttal to Paul’s attack:

Re: Split thread from “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”

wow-wee – the iron hammer falls squarely upon e.Man’s head – have to say that i didn’t see that one coming

It seems to me however that your beef with my post is not about *what* i wrote or the several “infractions”, if you will, that you have pointed out, but rather *who* i wrote about. Please, allow me to elaborate…

Were we talking about the Italian mafia, and i said “Italian elites”, would you have taken such drastic action as to isolate my posts, chastise me publicly and send a rather threatening PM?

But the Jewish mafia, well that’s a whole new ball-game, isn’t it? As soon as the word “Jew” or “Jewish” comes into play, it is automatically hate speech and it seems pretty clear to me that this is essentially what i am being accused of, under the guise of not following protocol and straying off topic. There can be criticism of an Italian criminal cabal, but not of a Jewish criminal cabal, is that it? That is surely the sense i am getting here, as i think i can make clear.

Let me begin my defense by expanding upon a statement i made earlier, emphasis added this time…

were it just a history thing, i wouldn’t care, but the history given to us by the victors of WW2 and the Jewish criminal cabal (and i am not saying Jews in general) has had, and continues to have an unbelievable (literally) impact upon our lives, politics, the media, finance, etc., and i personally think that that it is important to understand the real history and motives in order to better access and develop solutions for the many problems we face

Let there be no mistake whatsoever regarding my overall position regarding Jews…

1. I am not racist, nor do i hate people based on their religion, color, history, beliefs, appearance, etc., nor am i currently, or have i ever been a member of any race-centric organization, which includes the nazis, neo-nazis, skin-heads, kkk, white supremacists, or any other hate-based or race-based org, nor do i view my race as superior to another, nor do i view me as superior to others.

2. Although i made it clear earlier, i think i’d better expand upon my statement “and i am not saying Jews in general”. Again, had the discussion been about any people other than the Jews, i would seriously question such a backlash would have occurred. Nevertheless, there are criminal organizations that are centered around races, religions and ideologies (the Italian mafia for example, right?). So what’s wrong with “the Jewish mafia”? Or the “Jewish criminal cabal”? Or the Jewish elites? Does speaking of the Italian mafia/cabal/elites imply all Italians? Of course not; it implies a tiny subset of Italians who happen to be criminals. There is no difference when i refer to the Jewish cabal/mafia. It is not the Jewish people at large that are remotely responsible for many of the problems we face today – quite the opposite – they themselves are perhaps the biggest victims of the Jewish-Zionist elite! I have no more of a beef with Jews or those who call themselves Jews or those who are Jewish anymore than i have with Italians or those who call themselves Italians or Christians.

We have problems in our social and political systems – lots of problems – and knowing who is responsible and why is, in my opinion, necessary to developing relevant solutions to those problems, not that the Jewish-Zionist elites are responsible for all the worlds problems by any stretch, but the fact is that they are responsible for a lot of the most significant problems (if you want to look at it that way – another way to look at is is that we, the 99%, allowed these problems to manifest).

Now if you want to accuse me of being critical of the Jews, fine; i stand absolutely guilty! But understand that i am not singling out the Jews; i am singling out the “1%”, Jewish or otherwise, who are the unethical criminals driving policy. Many, but certainly not all Jews, have been brainwashed into accepting the philosophy of their criminal leaders, just as many, but not all non-Jews have been brainwashed in a similar manner. In that vain, yes, i am critical of the Jews – and of all of the rest of us – for swallowing the poison doled out by the 1%.

You then go on to quote me:

Perhaps the opening poster said it best: “in spite of what i said about putting too much focus on the Jewish elites, they happen to be a very hot topic for me at this particular time”.

You criticize me as though focusing on a single topic is… what? bad? Or is it because Jewry is the topic? Should one be criticized for focusing your attention on your passion because of the subject matter? Or admitting that they are interested in a particular topic? I think your statement is based upon semantics and i think there is little doubt that it is the sensitive subject matter that is the core issue.

Here you state that i misinterpreted something written by Mathis. Again, semantics. My first question is whether my alleged misinterpretation is grounds for the rather brutal flogging i have been subjected to? Am i, or anyone, expected to interpret things as you interpret them? Of course not, but again, i don’t think the issue is my interpretation at all.

Emphasis added…

The opening post of this split thread confused a paragraph very specifically discussing whether Zionists would want to DESTROY GOD, with discussing whether Zionists would want to use strong language in general.

Did i really misinterpret what Mathis said? Well, let’s have a look – he states:

Why do I think the Protocols are fiction? Because they taste like fiction. They don’t read like the real minutes of a meeting, nor like a game plan, nor like a white paper. The psychology is all wrong. People don’t talk about themselves this way. Jewish leaders would whitewash their own actions far better than this, even talking amongst themselves. Despots never call themselves despots, for example. No matter how Machiavellian leaders are, they always try to sugarcoat their actions, especially to themselves. As an example, we can study Protocol 4:

WE SHALL DESTROY GOD
[…]

It is blatantly clear to me that Mathis is using this protocol to make a point regarding the language used in the protocols. The content of the protocol he quotes is completely irreverent.

My rebuttal to Mathis was to demonstrate that some Jewish-Zionist elites do, in fact, use such brutal and blunt language and therefore the accuracy of his statement is somewhat questionable in my mind.

Continuing with your opinions…

The PROTOCOLS of the Elders of the Zion were clearly written during and discussing events over a century ago in Europe, but the opening post of this split thread takes Miles’ paper to task for its lack of a more detailed discussion of Zionist influence on the US in recent decades, saying “how can he [Miles] be correct given the blatantly obvious influence of the Jews in the U.S.?”.

You’re reading into my statements something that simply isn’t there and, again, is staggeringly trivial. I never criticized Mathis for not writing more regarding the Jewish-Zionist influence – i simply asked a question. My full quote ( i see that “existentially” should have been “essentially”):

Mathis seems to be saying that the aristocrats are existentially using the Jews as a tool to divert blame, and given the overwhelming influence of the the Jewish cabal in the U.S. and elsewhere, i would have to question that, though, admittedly, i have sometimes wondered if what Mathis is implying is exactly correct, but how can he be correct given the blatantly obvious influence of the Jews in the U.S.?

As for your critique of my indiscriminate “influence of the Jews in the U.S.” statement, granted, i could have been more specific, however i would also argue that the Jews in general, because of this criminal cabal, enjoy some benefits in the U.S. that they may not otherwise have. It’s like being the white person on the bus; you may not hate blacks or agree that Rosa should be restricted to a particular seat, but nevertheless you benefit because you’re white in that you can sit wherever you wish.

This is really quite amazing to me – i can’t imagine anyone being targeted for the utterly trivial things i am being targeted for here. Your criticism of me is based almost entirely on semantics. Again, this strongly indicates to me that it is not the overall subject matter that i am being water-boarded for, but rather it is because you simply don’t like what i have to say. Were this thread about anything other than Jews and Zionism, would i really be taken to task over asking a simple question that is quite obviously very relevant to the topic? And what is wrong with taking Mathis to task, as you put it? Am i not allowed to challenge the statements people make? Or might it be that i am not allowed to question those for which you apparently have a great deal of respect for? I don’t [think] any of these is the issue. I think it’s my challenging a criminal cabal — the 1%, a healthy portion of which happens to be Jewish — and pointing out that they’re Jewish.

This is not about straying off-topic or criticizing people or my alleged misunderstanding of what Mathis wrote or minor infractions which are being blown way out of proportion; it is about me criticizing people who you do not wish to see criticized. Since you do not seem to have the hutzpa to admit this (and i’m sorry, i don’t know how else to out it), you are twisting what i have said to make it appear that i am antisemitic and, in turn, using that invented assumption against me in what is an obvious effort to have me ejected from this forum.

I understand why that is and i suspect it isn’t personal, but i had hoped that the moderators of this particular forum, even if they do not agree with someone, would not try to vilify and threaten those they do not agree with and do so under false pretenses.

This is a perfect example of what i mean (emphasis added):

The opening post of this thread then uses that confusion to justify introducing several hot button topics, such as JFK’s assassination, Jewish lobby groups, and a book by Michael C. Piper, that have in a time long after The Protocols were written. Such blatant confounding of the historical time line is not appropriate in my book.

Here it is glaringly obvious that you are attacking me for the reason that you perceive your knowledge of history to be accurate, while mine is not. Have you read Piper’s book? Have you seriously studied the history you claim i am blatantly confounding? Do you deny the overwhelming power that Jewish lobby groups posses in the U.S. political sphere? Really? Am i not allowed an opinion that you find objectionable?

Since my membership is apparently on the line here because “Such blatant confounding of the historical time line is not appropriate in my book” and other statements, i think it is only fair that i be permitted to request that you provide evidence that reinforces your opinion that my knowledge of the historical and current facts i have discussed in my original post are in error, including the power of the Jewish lobby groups in the U.S. and Zionist philosophy in general. Or that i be permitted to make my case.

I think the rest of your concerns with my post were pretty much addressed in what i have said thus far, so i won’t bother to comment upon them unless requested.

Lastly, i would welcome any and all moderators to read this post and make a decision as to whether i fit in here. If not, that is fine, but i prefer to know now rather than 6 months or a year down the road.

One of the primary purposes of this forum, according to my understanding, is to find ways to dig us out of the immense hole we have excavated for ourselves through complicity, politics, pollution, broken social, education and monetary systems, etc.. It is my opinion that, in order to best do that, it might be a good idea to have a clear understanding of the specifics that led to this mess in the first place. I am not saying that this is the only way or even the right way to solve our problems, but i think it is a possibly way and all i can do is what i think is right.

If we cannot discuss who caused these problems and name names, than it is my opinion that the effectiveness of any given solution may be compromised. If you get bit by a dog, there are all kinds of solutions that can be developed to avoid a future attack; you can stay indoors; you can avoid the area where you were bit; you can kill all the dogs, etc., but wouldn’t knowing which dog bit you be of great value in developing a relevant solution? How do you know that all dogs will act in the same way?

In this silly geo-political game today, there’s a lot of dogs. I happen to be focused on one of them at this particular time, more or less, and that dog happens to be the Jewish-Zionist criminal cabal that is, provably, blatantly and factually influencing our lives – your life. When we speak of the 1%, it is Jewish elites that make up a large portion of that 1%. Are we to assume there is no organization among them? It isn’t my fault – that’s the way it is. And avoiding taboo subject matter is not, to me, how you solve problems.

I am sorry, but i am not at all afraid to point out the obvious, i don’t give a rats ass who gets implicated. Let the chips fall where they may.

So i’m sure some will be wondering what my solutions might be? Simple; EDUCATION!

I don’t want to put the Bush’s, the Cheney’s, the Wolfiwitz’s or the Netanyahu’s in prison … well, ok, i sorta do, but i’d rather change their way of thinking. Karma, you know? What comes around, goes around, and violence (and i see imprisonment as violent) is not the best answer in my opinion.

The Jews as a whole are not the problem, but when there is a blatantly obvious effort by a Jewish-Zionist criminal cabal to screw the rest of us and the Earth for their own self-serving benefit, INCLUDING THE JEWISH PEOPLE, i’ll be damned if i’m going to refrain from pointing that out because it’s not politically correct to criticize Jews. How can you talk about the Italian mafia without mentioning “Italian”? And when you do talk of this, there are probably very few people that assume you are talking about the Italian people as a whole. But the Jewish mafia? Whole different story, isn’t it? Swap out ONE WORD and all of a sudden you’re an anti-Semitic, Jew-bashing neo-nazi skin-head who hates every Jew that was ever born, not that i’m accusing you personally of going that far in your written critique of me, but that does seem to be the implication, at least to some degree.

I’m not asking or expecting anyone to agree with me. I know full well the programming that we all have been subjected to for nearly 7 decades regarding Germany’s role in WW2 and the Jews. All i am asking is that you allow me the opportunity to make a case and, if i am not welcome to do that, then, by all means, dump me because i defiantly do not belong here.

I will close with this quote:

“To determine the true rulers of any society, all you must do is ask yourself this question: Who is it that I am not permitted to criticize?” — Kevin Alfred Strom

The End

Paul would counter my lengthy, heart-felt plea by ignoring it entirely:

Re: Split thread from “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”

Your abilities to rationalize your actions, and to misinterpret my warnings, are both considerable.

This is unfortunate.

HTML-CSS code

CSS: Image Text Overlay

This is a quick tutorial for adding overlay text to an image using only CSS and HTML. Although this tutorial is centered around WordPress, it is easily adaptable for usage on any other publishing platform.

I wanted to achieve the following goals with this little hack:

  • Hyperlink everything that is visible so it does not matter on which element the visitor clicks
  • The cursor should remain as a hand cursor only while over the visible elements
  • No element wrapping/floating

This is the result :

Hers is the HTML:

<div class="imgoverlaywrapper">
  <a href="http://12bytes.org/"><img class="imgoverlay" src="[image_path]" /></a>
  <p class="imgoverlaytxt"><a href="http://12bytes.org/">The overlay text...</a></p>
</div>

Here is how it needs to be pasted in the WordPress TinyMCE editor so it doesn’t get mangled:

<div class="imgoverlaywrapper"><a href="http://12bytes.org/"><img class="imgoverlay" src="[path to image]" /></a>
<p class="imgoverlaytxt"><a href="http://12bytes.org/">The overlay text...</a></p>
</div>

And here is the CSS you will need to add to your theme’s style sheet:

/* image text overlay */
.imgoverlaywrapper {
    margin: 5px 5px 5px 12px;
    position: relative;
}

.imgoverlay {
    margin: 0px !important;
}

.imgoverlaytxt a {
    background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5);
    border-radius: 5px 30px 30px 5px;
    color: #F5F5F5 !important;
    font: italic 22px verdana, tahoma, arial;
    left: -12px;
    margin: 0px !important;
    padding: 20px 60px 20px 40px;
    position: absolute;
    text-decoration: none;
    text-shadow: 2px 2px 5px #9B9B9B;
    top: 16%;
}

If you have trouble with the WordPress TinyMCE editor mangling your code, i would highly recommend installing the TinyMCE Advanced plug-in and activating the option to stop WordPress from removing the p and br tags in the text editor.

Pink Elephant in the Room

Rescuing Israel: The Holocaust – The Elephant

There is an elephant in the room!

If an authority figure — perhaps a parent or teacher — tells a young child an untruth, the child may believe without question the person whom he or she recognizes as someone important in their life. Even if the child has developed a capacity for logical reasoning and possesses accurate knowledge regarding the topic at hand, they may question their current understanding simply because they expect their superior to have a better understanding of the subject than they.

Children have an innocence and a degree of honesty that sometimes degrades in many of us as we age, but more importantly, a young child has not yet developed an ego which they feel compelled to defend at the expense of considering a view which opposes their own, even when the supporting evidence is compelling. Even if the child reasons that the hypothetical elephant is not in the room, they are probably more likely to look before arguing the point, whereas an adult is more likely to argue without ever having looked.

There are many widely accepted authorities regarding Germany’s role in World War II, Hitler and the Jewish holocaust, including our school teachers, the authors of our history books, our governments and the mainstream media. Perhaps the most effective and prolific are the writers and producers of movies and documentary films emanating from Hollywood and elsewhere, all of these provide us with a generally consistent version of the key events of the Second World War and the reasons for it. Many of us tend to blindly trust these historians and institutions because their knowledge is perceived as being more extensive and accurate than our own. We expect them to adhere to higher ethical standards since the information they disseminate can have a significant impact upon public opinion and politics. We expect them to tell us the truth. The obvious problem here is that all of these mainstream institutions have been caught perpetrating deceptions time and time again, often with very deadly consequences in terms of human lives and yet, regardless of the fact that most of us are aware of at least some of these deceptions, we somehow continue to trust them as though their past performance has no bearing upon the the information they disseminate in the present.

9-11 Falling Man

Afghan Poppy

Vietnam War - The Naked Girl

Dimona Plutonium Separation Plant

Damage to the USS Liberty

Many now realize that Iraq did not play a significant role in the terrorist attacks upon the United States on September 11, 2001; that Saddam Hussein’s Republican Guard did not extract babies from incubators and drop them on the floor to die; that Iraq did not possess biological weapons, nor did it have a nuclear weapons program. These facts, well known by at least some elements of the CIA and the Bush administration at the time, did not deter the U.S. government from committing its military to a preplanned, geopolitical war in Iraq which has resulted in millions of deaths and displaced people, leaving in its wake a ravaged and enslaved country littered with depleted uranium, broken families and continued violence.

One of the first objectives the U.S. military was tasked with in Afghanistan was securing the poppy fields, the cultivation of which the Taliban had largely eradicated. Because of the security provided by the U.S. government however, poppy production was quickly rejuvenated and the multi-billion dollar heroin industry, which continues to grow each year, has made an astonishing recovery. The poppy from Afghanistan is used to supply approximately 80% of Europe’s heroin market according to Sibel Edmonds, a former FBI translator turned whistle-blower who is known as the most gagged person in American history.

Many are aware of the recently declassified documents which clearly tell us that, at a minimum, the second attack upon a U.S. Navy vessel in the Gulf of Tonkin was a complete fabrication. This immense lie, told by the Johnson administration and parroted by the establishment news media, was leveraged to garner the support of a largely unquestioning U.S. citizenry which would then back the administration’s goal of escalating the conflict in Vietnam, a non-war war (congress never formally declared a state of war) which resulted in the deaths of over two million people, most of which were civilians.

Many are aware of the true purpose of Israel’s Dimona facility which is used in the manufacturing of nuclear weapons, an activity which John F. Kennedy tried to stop because of the threat a nuclear Israel posed to the stability of the Middle East. Kennedy’s policies regarding Israel, including inspections of Dimona and his insistence that the American Zionist Council register as a foreign agent, as well as a policy which signaled the end of the Vietnam war, were reversed by the pro-Israel Johnson administration shortly after the fatal shot was fired in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963. To this day Israel denies it possesses nuclear weapons and is therefore exempt from nuclear weapon peace agreements and inspections.

Many are aware of the incident that took place during Israel’s 1967, 6 Day War with several Arab nations when the Unites States’ closest ally deliberately bombed, torpedoed and machine-gunned the USS Liberty, an intelligence gathering vessel floating off the coast of Gaza in international waters. The attack took place on a bright, sunny day while a five by eight foot American flag flew stretched out in the wind according to witnesses, who also stated that the Israelis illegally jammed international distress frequencies and machine-gunned the lifeboats, presumably to ensure the crews demise. 34 dead and 174 injured. Israel still insists the attack was a case of mistaken identity, however audio recordings of Israeli military communications tell a very different story and further reinforce what many already knew; that Israel was well aware it had engaged a U.S. Naval vessel in international waters.

I could probably cite another 50 well documented examples of massive lies, distortions, corruption, false-flag operations and cover-ups by various governments and media outlets without breaking a sweat, but i hope i have made my point, which is that it is foolish to blindly trust what our governments, mainstream media and educational institutions tell us without ever vetting the information they provide.

Regardless of your current position regarding Germany’s role in World War II, the Jewish holocaust and Hitler, there can be no doubt that there are very powerful people and institutions that are dedicated to ensuring that a particular version of these historical events receives the lions share of the attention while those who oppose these establishment views are persecuted and even imprisoned. Perhaps the most troubling and clear evidence of this is the fact that it is illegal in many countries to challenge certain aspects of the holocaust. As Kevin Alfred Strom said, “To determine the true rulers of any society, all you must do is ask yourself this question: Who is it that I am not permitted to criticize?”.

With that said, i now address you, the reader who believes that the mainstream version of Germany’s role in the Second World War is generally accurate and that approximately eleven million people, six million of which were Jews, were systematically exterminated primarily in German controlled concentration camps throughout Europe simply because Adolf Hitler was a psychotic, power-hungry dictator who hated Jews. Are you willing to put your beliefs to the test by reexamining the evidence with an open mind? Maybe there is an elephant in the room after all. Are you willing to look?

The wealthy Jews control the world, in their hands lies the fate of governments and nations. They set governments one against the other. When the wealthy Jews play, the nations and the rulers dance. One way or the other, they get rich.” — Theodore Herzl, founder of Zionism, in Deutsche Zeitung (source)

There may be some truth in that if the Arabs have some complaints about my policy towards Israel, they have to realize that the Jews in the U.S. control the entire information and propaganda machine, the large newspapers, the motion pictures, radio and television, and the big companies, and there is a force that we have to take into consideration.” — Richard Milhous Nixon, 37th President of the United States, quoted by Leonard Dinnerstein in Antisemitism in America, Oxford University Press, New York, 1994, p. 232-233 (source)

I’ve never seen a President — I don’t care who he is — stand up to them. It just boggles the mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to the point where I wasn’t writing anything down. If the American people understood what a grip these people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms. Our citizens certainly don’t have any idea what goes on.” — Thomas H. Moorer, Admiral in the US Navy and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, from an interview with Mordecai Gur, 1973 (source)

But I believe that Israel has a powerful stranglehold on the American government. They control both members of the House, the House and the Senate. They have us involved in wars in which we have little or no interest. Our children are coming back in body bags. Our nation is bankrupt over these wars. And if you open your mouth, you get targeted. And if they don’t beat you at the poll, they’ll put you in prison. […] They’re controlling much of our foreign policy. They’re influencing much of our domestic policy. Wolfowitz as undersecretary of defense manipulated President Bush number two back into Iraq. They’ve pushed definitely, definitely to try to get Bush before he left to move into Iran. We’re conducting the expansionist policy of Israel and everybody’s afraid to say it. They control much of the media, they control much of the commerce of the country, and they control powerfully both bodies of the Congress. They own the Congress.” — James Traficant, former U.S. congressman, during an interview by Fox News, Sep. 10, 2009 (source)

I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22% of Americans now believe “the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews,” down from nearly 50% in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood.” — Joel Stein in Who runs Hollywood? C’mon, the Los Angeles Times, Dec. 19, 2008 (source)

Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel. Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap.

Several high-level military officers believed that the killing of JFK was in fact a coup d’état carried out by elements of the CIA working with the Israeli Mossad. Kennedy was attempting to halt the development of nuclear weapons by the Israelis, while simultaneously planning to disband the CIA and disengage our military troops from the Indo-China area. (Read Final Judgment by Michael Collins Piper for more details.)” — Colonel Donn De Grand Pre, former high-ranking official in the Pentagon, in Barbarians Inside the Gates – The Black Book of Bolshevism by Colonel Donn De Grand Pre (source)

Of one thing we can be reasonably certain: any society that attracts large numbers of Jews can expect within a few years to enter a spiral of decadence. Moral anarchy sets in. Sexual promiscuity throws open its Pandora’s box of evils. We saw it in Weimar Germany. We see it gathering pace in America today.” — Dr. Lasha Darkmoon in Sex and the Jews: Letter to a Jewish Correspondent by Dr. Lasha Darkmoon, 2010 (source)

We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands.

America and Americans are fully aware of the enormous power that is bestowed in the hands of just a few Jewish oligarchs within ubiquitous industries of media, finance, politics, and culture.” — Gilad Atzmon in Trump Whistles His Dogs, by Gilad Atzmon, Nov. 1, 2016 (source)

There remains now but to determine the best way, the most practical and expeditious manner in which the ultimate penalty must be levied upon the German nation. Quite naturally, massacre and wholesale execution must be ruled out. […] There remains then but one mode of ridding the world forces of Germanism — and that is to stem the source from which issue those war-lusted souls, by preventing the people of Germany from ever again reproducing their kind.” Theodore N. Kaufman discussing the mass-sterilization of the Germen people in his book, Germany Must Perish!, ch.7, Death to Germany, 1941 (source)

In high school I remember asking my history teacher that if the Jews were robbed of their wealth by the Nazis then how come there are no German bankers now. I was never given an answer. Plus that teacher hated me forever.” — left as a comment by ‘adhdferret’ on the social media website, Voat, Dec. 3, 2016 (source)

Quotes regarding the holocaust, World War I and World War II

Achieving our quest of a “new world order” depends on our learning the Holocaust’s lessons.” — Ian J. Kagedan, director of government relations for B’nai B’rith Canada, in Memory of Holocaust central to new world order by Ian J. Kagedan, Toronto Star, Nov. 26, 1991, p. A.17 (source)

Alone the fact that one may not question the Jewish “holocaust” and that Jewish pressure has inflicted laws on democratic societies to prevent questions—while incessant promotion and indoctrination of the same averredly incontestable ‘holocaust’ occur—gives the game away. It proves that it must be a lie.” — Gerard Menuhin in Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil by Gerard Menuhin, Oct. 2015, p. 303 (source)

Jewish huckstering is most obviously apparent in its frenzied compulsion to uphold the “holocaust” myth, whose exposure would not only refute the Jews’ claim to Palestine and to endless financial reparations and atonement for harm not done to them, it would also deliver Jews and their minions to the fury of a world deceived and victimized for centuries by their lies and conspiracies.” — Gerard Menuhin in Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil by Gerard Menuhin, Oct. 2015, p. 456 (source)

Whilst large sections of the German nation are struggling for the preservation of their race, we Jews fill Germany with our vociferations. We supply the press with articles on the subject of its Christmas and Easter. We ridicule the highest ideals of the German nation and profane the matters which it holds sacred.” — Dr. Manfred Reifer, well known leader of the German Jews, in Czernowitzer Allgemeine Zeitung magazine, Sep. 1933, as quoted in Witness to History by Michael Walsh (source)

When they asked me, couldn’t you give money out of the United Jewish Appeal funds for the rescue of Jews in Europe, I said, ‘NO!’ and I say again ‘NO!’ … one should resist this wave which pushes the Zionist activities to secondary importance.” — Yitzhak Greenbaum, Chairman of the Rescue Committee of the Jewish Agency, addressing the Zionist Executive Council in Tel Aviv, Feb. 18, 1943 (source)

Also, I saw no gas chambers, nor even heard of them until after my release.” — Esther Grassman, prisoner of Auschwitz and Buchenwald, quoted from the 26-Oct-1979 edition of Hutchinson News (Kansas) (source)

I was in the big concentration camps in Germany. I must truthfully state that in no camp have I ever seen anything that might have resembled gas chambers.” — Dr. Benedikt Kautsky, Austrian Social Democrat and Jewish prisoner of various concentration camps from 1938-1945, including three years in Auschwitz, quoted in Auschwitz — A Personal Account, p. 4 (source)

The only thing we know about Hitler is that he killed six million Jews which never existed in gas chambers which nobody ever saw.” — Dr. Roger Dommergue, Jewish professor, philosopher, essayist and revisionist, during an interview conducted by Ernst Zündel (source)

What few realize is that such “eyewitness” testimony is notoriously inaccurate, biased and, in many cases, blatantly and demonstrably wrong. Jewish historian Samuel Gringauz, for example, once pointed out that: “[…] most of the memoirs and report [of “Holocaust survivors”] are full of preposterous verbosity, graphomanic exaggeration, dramatic effects, overestimated self-inflation, dilettante philosophizing, would-be lyricism, unchecked rumors, bias, partisan attacks and apologies.” — John Cobden quoting Samuel Gringauz in An Expert on ‘Eyewitness”Testimony Faces a Dilemma in the Demjanjuk Case (source)

Let me explain that even though I had been in Auschwitz I did not know about the gas chambers. Can you imagine that?” — Marika Frank Abrams in Voices from the Holocaust, referenced during Mark Weber’s testimony before the Human Rights Commission, Toronto, Canada, Dec. 9, 1998 (source)

It is important that the legend regarding 6 million supposedly murdered Jews acquired a legal basis during the Nuremberg Tribunals, though in fact the court had not one document signed by A. Hitler ordering the destruction of the Jews.” — Dr. Petras Stankeras, a Lithuanian historian and government adviser, in Niurnbergo karo nusikaltimų tribunolas – didžiausias juridinis farsas istorijoje (The Nuremberg trials – the biggest legal farce in history), Nov. 14, 2010, translated from Lithuanian (source)

Hitler will have no war (does not want war), but we will force it on him, not this year, but soon.” — Emil Ludwig Cohn in Les Annales, June, 1934, as quoted in a 1943 edition of Das Stürmer (source)

The war now proposed is for the purpose of establishing Jewish hegemony throughout the world.” — Brigadier General George Van Horn Mosely in The Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, Apr. 7, 1939 (source)

The Second World War is being fought for the defense of the fundamentals of Judaism.” — Rabbi Felix Mendlesohn in the Chicago Sentinel, Oct. 8, 1942 (source)

Even if we Jews are not physically at your side in the trenches, we are morally with you. This war is our war and you fight it with us.” — Schalom Asch in Les Nouvelles Litterairres, Feb. 10, 1940

The millions of Jews who live in America, England and France, North and South Africa, and, not to forget those in Palestine, are determined to bring the war of annihilation against Germany to its final end.” — Central Blad Voor Israeliten in Nederland, Sep. 13, 1939

Germany is our public enemy number one. It is our object to declare war without mercy against her. One may be sure of this: We will lead that war!” — Bernard Lecache, president of the International League Against Racism and Anti-Semitism, in the Droit de Vivre (Right to Life) newspaper, Nov. 9, 1938

We are not denying and are not afraid to confess that this war is our war and that it is waged for the liberation of Jewry… Stronger than all fronts together is our front, that of Jewry. We are not only giving this war our financial support on which the entire war production is based, we are not only providing our full propaganda power which is the moral energy that keeps this war going. The guarantee of victory is predominantly based on weakening the enemy forces, on destroying them in their own country, within the resistance. And we are the Trojan horses in the enemy’s fortress. Thousands of Jews living in Europe constitute the principal factor in the destruction of our enemy. There, our front is a fact and the most valuable aid for victory.” — Chaim Weizmann, President of the World Jewish Congress, Head of the Jewish Agency and later President of Israel, during a speech on Dec. 3, 1942, in New York

[…] I am saying that the leaders of both the British and Jewish races, for reasons which are understandable from their viewpoint as they are inadvisable from ours, for reasons which are not American, wish to involve us in the war.” — Charles Lindbergh, from a speech given in Des Moines, Iowa, Sep. 11, 1941 (source)

The three most important groups who have been pressing this country toward war are the British, the Jewish, and the Roosevelt Administration.” — Charles Lindbergh, from a speech given in Des Moines, Iowa, Sep. 11, 1941 (source)

Played golf today with Joe Kennedy [Joseph P. Kennedy who was Roosevelt’s Ambassador to Great Britain in the years immediately before the war]. I asked him about his conversations with Roosevelt and Neville Chamberlain [Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from May 1937 to May 1940] from 1938 on. He said Chamberlain’s position in 1938 was that England had nothing with which to fight and that she could not risk going to war with Hitler. Kennedy’s view : That Hitler would have fought Russia without any later conflict with England if it had not been for Bullitt’s [William C. Bullitt, descendant of Hyam Salomon, then Ambassador to France] urging on Roosevelt in the summer of 1939 that the Germans must be faced down about Poland ; neither the French nor the British would have made Poland a cause of war if it had not been for the constant needling from Washington. Bullitt, he said, kept telling Roosevelt that the Germans wouldn’t fight, Kennedy that they would, and that they would overrun Europe. Chamberlain, he says, stated that America and the world Jews had forced England into the war.” — James Forrestal, Secretary of the Navy, first United States Secretary of Defense, in The Forrestal Diaries, Dec. 27, 1945 (source)

The world is aware how jealously the Jewish community guards the Holocaust, both as a memory and as a weapon.” — David Klinghoffer in Our Role in Promoting Holocaust Denial, Forward, Dec. 30, 2005, p. 9 (source)

Care must be taken not to give a platform for deniers — do not treat the denial of the Holocaust as a legitimate historical argument or seek to disprove the deniers’ position through normal historical debate and rational argument.” — Guidelines for Teaching about the Holocaust at the Stockholm International Forum, 2000 (source)

[…] there was a Holocaust, which is, by the way, more easily said than demonstrated.” — Raul Hilberg, considered to be the world’s preeminent scholar of the Holocaust, in Is There a New Anti-Semitism? A Conversation with Raul Hilberg, 2007 (source)

I describe incidents which may or may not have happened but which are true.” — Elie Wiesel, writer, professor, political activist, Nobel Laureate and alleged holocaust survivor, quoted from Elie Wiesel: Conversations, p. 33 (source)

Given the nonsense that is turned out daily by the Holocaust industry, the wonder is that there are so few skeptics.” — Norman Finkelstein, Jewish American political scientist, activist, professor and author, in The Holocaust Industry (source)

Every Jew, somewhere in his being, should set apart a zone of hate — healthy virile hate — for what the German personifies and for what persists in the German.” — Elie Wiesel, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, in Legends of Our Time by Elie Wiesel, 1986, p. 142

Then one day I realized that a false picture of the German camps had been created and that the problem of the concentration camps was a universal one, not just one that could be disposed of by placing it on the doorstep of the National Socialists. The deportees — many of whom were Communists — had been largely responsible for leading international political thinking to such an erroneous conclusion. I suddenly felt that by remaining silent I was an accomplice to a dangerous influence.” — Paul Rassinier, prisoner at the Buchenwald and Dora concentration camps from 1943 until the end of the war

We have no doubt about your bravery or devotion to your fatherland, nor do we believe that you are the monster described by your opponents.” — Mahatma Gandhi in a letter to Adolf Hitler, Dec. 24, 1940 (source)

After visiting these two places (Berchtesgaden and the Eagle’s lair on Obersalzberg), you can easily understand how that within a few years Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived. He had boundless ambitions for his country which rendered him a menace to the peace of the world, but he had a mystery about him in the way that he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him. He had in him the stuff of which legends are made.” — John F. Kennedy in Prelude To Leadership – The European Diary of John F. Kennedy, 1945, p. 74

Yes, Heil Hitler. I, too, say that because he is truly a great man.” — Lloyd George, UK Prime Minister, 1916-1922, in In the Service for Germany by K. Hierl, p. 163

What we have to do now is to make the public at large aware that what we’re looking at is not a historical event but — and I have to be brutal and I am going to say it — a racket. It is a racket which defrauds nations. The German nation was its first and principal victim, to the tune of 100 billion Deutsche marks plus.” — Ernst Zündel in an interview conducted by Kevin Alfred Strom, 1995 (source)

Quotes by Adolf Hitler

This conspiracy of democratic Jews and Free Masons dragged Europe into war two years ago. Arms had to decide. … Since then a struggle has been taking place between truth and lies and, as always, this war will end in the victory for truth. In other words, whatever lies British propaganda, international world Jewry and its democratic accomplices may concoct they will not change historical facts. And it is a historical fact that for two years now Germany has been defeating one opponent after another. … I did not want it. Immediately after the first conflict I again held out my hand. I have been a soldier myself and I know how difficult it is to win a victory. … My hand was rejected. And since then we have seen that each peace offer was immediately exploited by the warmonger Churchill and his confreres so that they could say it was proof of our weakness.” — Adolf Hitler in a radio broadcast from Berlin to the German people, 1941 (source)

If a government uses the instruments of power in its hands for the purpose of leading a people to ruin, then rebellion is not only the right but also the duty of every individual citizen.” — Adolf Hitler in Mein Kampf, James Murphy English translation, pg. 85

The fools among our bourgeois politicians do not mock at us on this point any more; for even those politicians now see – if they would speak the truth – that international stock-exchange capital was not only the chief instigating factor in bringing on the War but that now when the War is over it turns the peace into a hell.” — Adolf Hitler in Mein Kampf, James Murphy English translation, pg. 171

Because of the lack of productive capacities of its own, the Jewish Folk cannot carry out the construction of a State, viewed in a territorial sense, but as a support of its own existence it needs the work and creative activities of other nations. Thus the existence of the Jew himself becomes a parasitical one within the lives of other Folks. Hence the ultimate goal of the Jewish struggle for existence is the enslavement of productively active Folks. In order to achieve this goal, which in reality has represented Jewry’s struggle for existence at all times, the Jew makes use of all weapons that are in keeping with the whole complex of his character. Therefore in domestic politics within the individual nations he fights first for equal rights and later for superior rights. The characteristics of cunning, intelligence, astuteness, knavery, dissimulation, and so on, rooted in the character of his Folkdom, serve him as weapons thereto. They are as much stratagems in his war of survival as those of other Folks in combat. In foreign policy, he tries to bring nations into a state of unrest, to divert them from their true interests, and to plunge them into reciprocal wars, and in this way gradually rise to mastery over them with the help of the power of money and propaganda. His ultimate goal is the denationalisation, the promiscuous bastardisation of other Folks, the lowering of the racial levy of the highest Folks, as well as the domination of this racial mishmash through the extirpation of the Folkish intelligentsia and its replacement by the members of his own Folk.” — Adolf Hitler in Hitler’s Secret Book, New York, Grove Press (source)

Quotes about Zionism and Palestinian

Israel may have the right to put others on trial, but certainly no one has the right to put the Jewish people and the State of Israel on trial.” — Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon quoted from BBC News Online, Mar. 25, 2001

Ramallah is not Auschwitz. Israel is not the Third Reich. We have no death camps and we haven’t massacred one third of the Palestinian population in gas chambers. Therefore, everything we do is quite all right. We may fill the occupied territories with tear gas and blood, we may kill and injure and torture and blackmail and dispossess, we may surround millions by electric fences and tanks in tiny enclaves, we may hold them under siege and daily bombing, we may make pregnant women walk to hospitals, and we shoot ambulances too, don’t we. But as long as we fall even an inch short of the atrocities of Nazi Germany, it’s all fine and good, and don’t you dare make the comparison.” — Ran HaCohen in The Auschwitz Logic, Antiwar.com (4 January 2002).

We shall reduce the Arab population to a community of woodcutters and waiters.” — Uri Lubrani, Israeli Prime Minister and special adviser on Arab Affairs, in The Arabs in Israel by Sabri Jiryas

Everybody has to move, run and grab as many [Palestinian] hilltops as they can to enlarge the [Jewish] settlements because everything we take now will stay ours. Everything we don’t grab will go to them.” — Ariel Sharon, Israeli Foreign Minister, addressing a meeting of the Tsomet Party, Agence France Presse, Nov. 15, 1998

It is not our task to establish in Palestine a home for selected [Jewish] people, not even a state for a small portion of our people. The aim of our efforts is to organize a systematic massive Jewish evacuation from all the countries in which they live …” — Vladimir Jabotinsky, extremist/terrorist, founder of Zionist militia groups Betar and Irgun

Police Traffic Stop

Dealing With The Fuzz

“The history of totalitarian regimes is reflected in the evolution and perfection of the instruments of terror and more especially the police.” —  Carl J. Friedrich

There you are, driving along, when suddenly you see that dreaded flashing light flickering in your rear-view. Perhaps you were speeding, or maybe you rolled through a stop sign. Whatever the case, one of the first questions you may be asked is, “Do you know why i stopped you?”. It’s a common question when you are pulled over for a traffic violation, but why does the officer ask it?

This question is actually a tactic that is used by police to manipulate you into admitting that you broke the law. By admitting that, yes, maybe you were going a little too fast, you just incriminated yourself and your answer can be used as evidence against you should you decide to dispute the charge in court. Secondly, you are now virtually guaranteed of being cited or arrested for whatever wrongdoing you just admitted to.

Cops are sneaky; while you are expected to provide truthful, accurate information, they are legally allowed to manipulate and lie in order to obtain a confession or trip you up in some way. While it may seem more ethical to be honest and admit your wrongdoing, keep in mind that the police operate under a very different standard. You don’t have to lie, nor should you, but not answering their questions is not lying and is perfectly within your rights.

RULE #1: NEVER TALK TO THE POLICE!

Never answer any questions. Never admit anything. Like the babbling baboon Bill O’ Reilly says, “Shut Up!”. Whether you are innocent or guilty, it does not matter; anything you say may be used against you and so the only thing you can possibly do, in most circumstances, is undermine your position by volunteering information, regardless of how certain you are that the information will work in your benefit.

If you are an honest person and you know you are guilty, and wish to accept responsibility for your actions, you can always choose to do so after the initial encounter. There is no reason to give law enforcement any information that can only erode your position.

RULE #2: Remain calm

Always remain calm and courteous and never raise your voice or make any quick moves or threatening gestures. You want to play a very non-threatening role, but you want to do so without sacrificing your rights. You want to make it appear that the officer is in control by not challenging their ego which, in turn, will give you greater control. The instant you get angry or threaten or intimidate the officer, you not only relinquish control, but you will greatly increase the chance of an unfavorable outcome, especially when dealing with a cop who has an over sized ego which is very often the case.

RULE #3: Know your rights

You are never obligated to consent to a search of your person, or property, or any other requests for which you are given a choice. In many states you are not even required to produce identification unless you are suspected of committing a crime. You do not have to give your name. You are not legally obligated to give the police permission to do anything, nor are you compelled to answer any of their questions, but you may ask questions that they may be obligated to answer. For example, if there is any doubt as to why you were pulled over during a traffic stop, simply ask the officer why you were stopped. A polite “Hello officer. May i ask why you stopped me?” will do. If the officer does not provide a reason, then ask if you are being detained or are free to go. Unless you are being detained, you may end the encounter any time you choose, but you should always confirm with the officer whether you are free to go to prevent any possibility of a misunderstanding.

RULE #4: Never resist

Never refuse an officers direct order, regardless of whether that order is legal. The only questionable exception to this rule is when you are certain that the order is unlawful and will very likely result in the officer physically attacking you and you are sure your situation will be improved by resisting. In this instance you may want to consider the consequences of that order before obeying it, but even for these very rare occasions it is highly questionable as to whether you — usually the one without the gun — should resist a trained and armed police officer. Having said that, you are obviously not obligated to follow an illegal order, but we can clearly see why we may choose to do so regardless.

RULE #5: Record the encounter

Your child didn’t steal that cookie while you were looking, did she? Similarly, law enforcement officers are more likely to observe the law if they know their actions are being monitored. Regardless of what the officer may tell you, you are legally permitted to record encounters with the police. For your own protection you should always record every encounter with the police and, though you should not make a big deal of it by positioning your camera right in the officers face, which may provoke an aggressive response, you should not make a secret of it either. Keep it unobtrusive, but obvious. A record of the encounter will prove to be invaluable as evidence if you are forced to defend yourself in court or choose to initiate a legal action against the police.

If the officer demands that you delete the recording or tries to take it from you, understand that your recording may not be confiscated without a warrant, but also understand that they may not know or care about the law, especially if tensions are high. If it seems clear the officer may use violence to confiscate your property, let them have it. In the event the officer forcefully deletes your recording, or forces you to do so, don’t sweat it. The files on your recording media should remain intact as long as you only delete them and did not format the memory card. After deleting the recording, power off the device and remove the memory card. When you get home, use a utility such as PhotoRec to recover the “deleted” files.

Regardless of any threats the police may issue, you are legally allowed to share your recording publicly and certainly this option is well worth considering when you know your rights were violated and/or the police have broken the law. Public pressure resulting from videos of aggressive police encounters have had a significant impact in many instances.
