Memorial Day – Time to Ask Why

Time for a Different Activism


 …by  Gordon Duff, Senior Editor and USMC Combat Veteran


Why did I add that?  I am asking for something and it isn’t money.  We have some “activists” here, folks who are angry and at an end of their patience with injustice. 

They provide hope and balance for the fatal cynicism that comes from the intelligence community where our real depth is, over 32 nations now, many either writing or feeding info and confirmations in great secrecy.

We aren’t a whistle blower or “leak” sight.  We are just a voice and a platform where members of the clandestine community, activists, war veterans, tier one fighters can come together and share ideas, communicate back channel and close some of the gaps that have led to the last disastrous century.

Our general agreement, with dozens of wars, thousands of medals, top clearances or activists with decades of personal sacrifice, we are slowly coming together, but not so slowly anymore.

The financial games have turned all of us, they have been too transparent.  Now all of us, and I work hard to keep paid infiltrators and shills away. This is the wrong place for children to play with adults, if you get my meaning…best left unstated, are looking for justice.

We aren’t terrorists but free men and women but we want blood, the blood of the guilty just the same. We know war, we know politics, we know economics and we know lies when we hear them and we have listened to little else for so long we know of nothing else. All of it is a con. None of it fits.

What do I mean?

Let’s start with the wars, terror, Iran, Syria, Libya, the Balkans, the weapons races, all eating the resources of a planet we old guys were going to save, build for our grandchildren so they could live in peace and plenty, so they could look on a world we helped make and be proud of us.

We screwed up, killed the wrong people, fought the wrong wars, were too often on the wrong side, let ourselves be lied to and used.  Quietly, some feel shame, other anger and none that have honor don’t feel one, the other or both.

We are not just ashamed of those who sold out for money, who have kept the world impoverished, most below iron age, half at stone age, disease ridden, ignorant and starving, when we could so easily have done so much better, those who are silent on this many of us wish dead, have the skills to make it happen but then see the lesson.

We would be terrorists.

I have friends who are ranking officials, top officers who, when they talk, sound like freedom fighters, people who wish for the clarity that real honor would give, war to defend our families, not wars of profit and conquest that has stained our souls.

'Tim Osman' with Ziggy Brzezinski...when Tim was CIA

A decade ago, they were ready to wipe over a billion people off the face of the earth.  Then it came down to “contracting,” whether $600 a day or $2,000 a day.  All you had to remember was the mantra, “Al Qaeda is the threat, we must find Osama bin Laden.”

The evidence for “Al Qaeda” was the same sources Chalbi brought us on Saddam’s WMDs, all air and baloney.  There are no large terror rings other than those established during the Cold War, those underwritten by intelligence agencies.

Palestinians fought back, as too many of us know now, fought 62 years of genocide and apartheid that decades of Hollywood and Info-News fiction twisted into terrorism.

They were a people wiped from the face of the earth for trying to live in peace on land others had been given by a rehashed Hittite sun god and his imaginary pseudo-biblical cast of ancient sociopaths and mythologists.

It was Iran Contra that put the permanent stain on America’s intelligence community, some of it undeserved.  Key agencies, the few that existed then, deeply resented White House bungling and racketeering under Reagan and Bush.

While the “imagineers” watched the collapse of communism, the real watchers saw something else.  We saw a chessboard where America had made moves that, in the end, would “checkmate” the entire west, as we see today.

Angela Merkel - the former(?) communist

NATO is 99% America, drugs, intimidation, election rigging and organized crime. NATO, with the US and Europe are 5000% broke, busted and waiting for the crash and it was all engineered by those who lost the cold war, by the old line “commies,” by the East German Stasi, whose “queen,” Merkel rules Europe.

As Patton will tell you, we lost World War II, not coming in second, we didn’t finish at all, it finished us.

As payback for American support of the Mujahideen, the US was maneuvered into accepting what it thought was a “right wing” dictatorship what would make us rulers of the world.  It was easy.

Cheney and Rumsfeld, the “Darth Vader Duo,” had picked out a bungling malcontent, George Bush “the least” and a gang of “think tankers” they didn’t know were all Moscow/Tel Aviv puppets whose job it was to lead us to war, to civil unrest, to economic collapse and unrelenting domestic totalitarianism.

Ask Brzezinski about it.  He watched it all come together, helpless, while 9/11 was being planned around him.  One friend, working in the White House in 2001, talked today of an “off the cuff” conversation he had with several National Security Council members on August 23, 2001.  He told them how easy it would be to crash planes into the White House.

“Their faces turned white.  They told me, ‘If we hear a word of this, you will find yourself arrested or dead, do you understand?”

Like all of us, when the “planes” happened, no American fighters as with other hijackings or “off course” flights, we all knew and we all looked away, leaving David Ray Griffin and Mr. Bollyn the lonely job of being the conscience of the world.

Those that could have, that should have spoken up, silent for years and now, quite unavoidably, when it is too late, have finally figured it out.

Here is what we have learned:

While we were told to watch for “the left,” the “liberals,” a real totalitarianism came to us in wolves clothing from the right, behind every “neocon” is a Stalinist in disguise, hiding behind class envy or manufactured wars.

This is the old Comintern disguised as the Israel lobby or peddling “family values” and “Christian virtue,” all a sham, all a cocoon for what we now know to be as the real communist infiltrators, playing Americans like a broken fiddle this Memorial day like so many others.

This is the real Memorial Day, those who died beside me, who died for war after war, always the same reason, the dead, the maimed, the crushed of spirit, all for money from Pearl Harbor to Gettysburg to Concord Green to the Tet to Pork Chop Hill, every death for money alone.

We tell ourselves we gave because of those beside us.  Truthfully, we were duped, we were drafted, we were coerced, we were blackmailed, we were lied to and all any of us ever accomplished was to serve our masters and die quietly or kill the poor and innocent.

But World War II was different we are told, the holocaust, the camps, the crazy Nazi gangsters and the Japanese warring class.  But who told us?  You won’t like the answer.

Most of our history was written by communists, they dictated Churchill’s ghost written books, they gave us all those stories we retell day after day, our mythology of self righteousness.

This is the censored Patton.  Even I censor Patton as his words are now considered illegal, criminal acts in Germany, Canada, even America.  They are true just the same.

The video below is what is allowed to remain of him, public lies that still couldn’t keep him alive as he was murdered soon after.

Note the film is narrated by Reagan who personally took credit for liberating Auschwitz though Reagan did not serve in World War II.  Patton would have used Reagan for pistol practice.

 Patton was the single real military leader to come out of the war.  Here, Patton gives his version of events:

At the end of World War II, one of America’s top military leaders accurately assessed the shift in the balance of world power which that war had produced and foresaw the enormous danger of communist aggression against the West. Alone among U.S. leaders he warned that America should act immediately, while her supremacy was unchallengeable, to end that danger. Unfortunately, his warning went unheeded, and he was quickly silenced by a convenient “accident” which took his life.

Thirty-two years ago, in the terrible summer of 1945, the U.S. Army had just completed the destruction of Europe and had set up a government of military occupation amid the ruins to rule the starving Germans and deal out victors’ justice to the vanquished. General George S. Patton, commander of the U.S. Third Army, became military governor of the greater portion of the American occupation zone of Germany.

It was only in the final days of the war and during his tenure as military governor of Germany — after he had gotten to know both the Germans and America’s “gallant Soviet allies” — that Patton’s understanding of the true situation grew and his opinions changed. In his diary and in many letters to his family, friends, various military colleagues, and government officials, he expressed his new understanding and his apprehensions for the future. His diary and his letters were published in 1974 by the Houghton Mifflin Company under the title The Patton Papers.

Several months before the end of the war, General Patton had recognized the fearful danger to the West posed by the Soviet Union, and he had disagreed bitterly with the orders which he had been given to hold back his army and wait for the Red Army to occupy vast stretches of German, Czech, Rumanian, Hungarian, and Yugoslav territory, which the Americans could have easily taken instead.

On May 7, 1945, just before the German capitulation, Patton had a conference in Austria with U.S. Secretary of War Robert Patterson. Patton was gravely concerned over the Soviet failure to respect the demarcation lines separating the Soviet and American occupation zones. He was also alarmed by plans in Washington for the immediate partial demobilization of the U.S. Army.

Patton said to Patterson:

 “Let’s keep our boots polished, bayonets sharpened, and present a picture of force and strength to the Red Army. This is the only language they understand and respect.”

Patterson replied, “Oh, George, you have been so close to this thing so long, you have lost sight of the big picture.”

Patton rejoined:

“I understand the situation. Their (the Soviet) supply system is inadequate to maintain them in a serious action such as I could put to them. They have chickens in the coop and cattle on the hoof — that’s their supply system. They could probably maintain themselves in the type of fighting I could give them for five days. After that it would make no difference how many million men they have, and if you wanted Moscow I could give it to you.

They lived on the land coming down. There is insufficient left for them to maintain themselves going back. Let’s not give them time to build up their supplies. If we do, then . . . we have had a victory over the Germans and disarmed them, but we have failed in the liberation of Europe; we have lost the war!”

Patton’s urgent and prophetic advice went unheeded by Patterson and the other politicians and only served to give warning about Patton’s feelings to the alien conspirators behind the scenes in New York, Washington, and Moscow.

The more he saw of the Soviets, the stronger Patton’s conviction grew that the proper course of action would be to stifle communism then and there, while the chance existed. Later in May 1945 he attended several meetings and social affairs with top Red Army officers, and he evaluated them carefully. He noted in his diary on May 14:

“I have never seen in any army at any time, including the German Imperial Army of 1912, as severe discipline as exists in the Russian army. The officers, with few exceptions, give the appearance of recently civilized Mongolian bandits.”

And Patton’s aide, General Hobart Gay, noted in his own journal for May 14: “Everything they (the Russians) did impressed one with the idea of virility and cruelty.”

George all decked out

Nevertheless, Patton knew that the Americans could whip the Reds then — but perhaps not later. On May 18 he noted in his diary:

“In my opinion, the American Army as it now exists could beat the Russians with the greatest of ease, because, while the Russians have good infantry, they are lacking in artillery, air, tanks, and in the knowledge of the use of the combined arms, whereas we excel in all three of these. If it should be necessary to fight the Russians, the sooner we do it the better.”

Two days later he repeated his concern when he wrote his wife: “If we have to fight them, now is the time. From now on we will get weaker and they stronger.”

Having immediately recognized the Soviet danger and urged a course of action which would have freed all of eastern Europe from the communist yoke with the expenditure of far less American blood than was spilled in Korea and Vietnam.

It would have obviated both those later wars not to mention World War III — Patton next came to appreciate the true nature of the people for whom World War II was fought: the Jews.

Most of the Jews swarming over Germany immediately after the war came from Poland and Russia.

He was disgusted by their behavior in the camps for Displaced Persons (DP’s) which the Americans built for them and even more disgusted by the way they behaved when they were housed in German hospitals and private homes. He observed with horror that “these people do not understand toilets and refuse to use them except as repositories for tin cans, garbage, and refuse . . . They decline, where practicable, to use latrines, preferring to relieve themselves on the floor.”

Another September diary entry, following a demand from Washington that more German housing be turned over to Jews, summed up his feelings:

Henry Morgenthau, Jr.

“Evidently the virus started by Morgenthau and Baruch of a Semitic revenge against all Germans is still working. Harrison (a U.S. State Department official) and his associates indicate that they feel German civilians should be removed from houses for the purpose of housing Displaced Persons.

There are two errors in this assumption. First, when we remove an individual German we punish an individual German, while the punishment is — not intended for the individual but for the race.

Furthermore, it is against my Anglo-Saxon conscience to remove a person from a house, which is a punishment, without due process of law.”

Similarly, he expressed his doubts to his military colleagues about the overwhelming emphasis being placed on the persecution of every German who had formerly been a member of the National Socialist party. In a letter to his wife of September 14, 1945, he said:

“I am frankly opposed to this war criminal stuff. It is not cricket and is Semitic. I am also opposed to sending POW’s to work as slaves in foreign lands (i.e., the Soviet Union’s Gulags), where many will be starved to death.”

Despite his disagreement with official policy, Patton followed the rules laid down by Morgenthau and others back in Washington as closely as his conscience would allow, but he tried to moderate the effect, and this brought him into increasing conflict with Eisenhower and the other politically ambitious generals. In another letter to his wife he commented:

“I have been at Frankfurt for a civil government conference. If what we are doing (to the Germans) is ‘Liberty, then give me death.’ I can’t see how Americans can sink so low.”

And in his diary he noted:,

A pensive Patton...Thinking about the Russians?

“Today we received orders . . . in which we were told to give the Jews special accommodations. If for Jews, why not Catholics, Mormons, etc? . . . We are also turning over to the French several hundred thousand prisoners of war to be used as slave labor in France. It is amusing to recall that we fought the Revolution in defense of the rights of man and the Civil War to abolish slavery and have now gone back on both principles.”

His duties as military governor took Patton to all parts of Germany and intimately acquainted him with the German people and their condition. He could not help but compare them with the French, the Italians, the Belgians, and even the British. This comparison gradually forced him to the conclusion that World War II had been fought against the wrong people.

After a visit to ruined Berlin, he wrote his wife on July 21, 1945: “Berlin gave me the blues. We have destroyed what could have been a good race, and we are about to replace them with Mongolian savages. And all Europe will be communist. It’s said that for the first week after they took it (Berlin), all women who ran were shot and those who did not were raped. I could have taken it (instead of the Soviets) had I been allowed.”

This conviction, that the politicians had used him and the U.S. Army for a criminal purpose, grew in the following weeks. During a dinner with French General Alphonse Juin in August, Patton was surprised to find the Frenchman in agreement with him. His diary entry for August 18 quotes Gen. Juin: “It is indeed unfortunate, mon General, that the English and the Americans have destroyed in Europe the only sound country — and I do not mean France. Therefore, the road is now open for the advent of Russian communism.”

Later diary entries and letters to his wife reiterate this same conclusion. On August 31 he wrote: “Actually, the Germans are the only decent people left in Europe. it’s a choice between them and the Russians. I prefer the Germans.” And on September 2: “What we are doing is to destroy the only semi-modern state in Europe, so that Russia can swallow the whole.”

The Dufster in Nam...a tall but skinny target

There are few American families that didn’t suffer because of the war.  For decade after decade, we are told a mythology about our enemy.  I am limited by law in a dozen nations thought to be liberal democracies to write what I know to be fact about what Germany did and did not do during the war.

I am allowed, however, to take this time and thank those, who exactly like me, out of ignorance or curiosity or simply a need for acceptance, have taken part in wars against our brothers and sisters, led our friends to slaughter, destroyed civilizations in the name of Wall Street, Moscow, Tel Aviv and international communism.

Whether “Progressive” or “Reactionary,” the answer was always the same, invade, kill, steal, control and lie.

In 1917 we went to war to “make the world safe for democracy.”

95 years later, that world lives in virtual slavery, Americans are beginning to starve, look around you, Africa is still colonized, brutality and deception are the norm.

Please, point to one success, Britain proven a slave of Murdoch and Blair, a cabal of crime, Germany ruled by the Stasi “queen,” France and the rest of Europe in utter collapse, Africa, raped and slaughtered for profit, Asia, the land of sweat shops, Mexico, drugs, murder and human trafficking, a land of fear, very much a part of a continent in collapse.

This is what we fought to give our children. What we forgot to do is teach them right from wrong, who to kill, when to kill and why. We never learned that ourselves.

Next time we are asked to head across the world to steal oil, sell drugs and murder children, we might just head the other direction.  Think I am kidding?  Ask around.

One of the magical 'pretzel' Twin Towers beams

Next time an imaginary bin Laden melts a million tons of steel with a few gallons of kerosene, ain’t none of us buying a word of it anymore.  Next car bomb, suicide bomber, crashing plane, we know where to look and who to look for.

I passed 6 veterans yesterday while driving out for dinner, each with their version of “Will work for food” on a sign.  It was a warm day, I recognize 82nd Airborne on a tattoo when I see one.

I know the game, burn the records, refuse to help the homeless because “rules don’t let us give aid to homeless veterans who can’t prove 90 days residency.” (Ohio Veterans Commission Rule 5901.08)

This Memorial Day, every county across America has given an average of $500,000 each to aid veterans in addition to the budget of $140.3 billion from the Department of Veterans Affairs (based on President Obama’s estimate for 2013).

Less than 5% of that money will go to veterans, the rest will end up lining pockets of officials or be openly stolen.  Those responsible are, in many cases, veterans themselves, grown fat on the blood of fellow vets.

Many represent what they tell us is the real veteran’s leadership, bars, pool halls and bingo parlors backed by a few Washington lawyers. In truth, they represent nothing except a cog in the lie machine that has eaten the world.

It’s time, not just to quit but to “get even.”  We have been forgiving too long and have much to seek justice for, Americans and the millions, maybe billions around the world.

Memorial Day is a time to remind people that doing as you are told makes you a slave, not a free man.

    Gordon it is time for all good men to learn the law and win in the courtroom. Winning in the courtroom removes their power. The pen is definitely mightier than the sword. And the dragon vest. Please read this book. Published by the greatest Constitutional scholar that has ever lived. Paul Andrew Mitchell.

    Gordon if you want to win this fight without firing a shot you will read this book. If not then don’t read it. Published by Paul Andrew Mitchell. The greatest Constitutional expert that has ever lived.

  3. geoffreyfinn  May 29, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Excellent talk Gordon. There is only one way to win and that is in the courtroom. I can do it so I know you can too. Sadly too many otherwise good men are dependent upon this government and will not let go until they are dead. The jews will get their utopia and what is left of the ignorant goyim will be shining their shoes. I know this is a horrible thing to say but at this late stage there can be no other outcome. Learn how to win in the courtroom or lose what is left. I beat a jew judge twice and I now have their respect. Not that they still wont kill me if the time comes but they know I was not a coward and that scares them.

    What does your intel say about Putin? Is he another Merkel? A Stalinist/Bolshevik/neocon/zionist? I ask because our press seems to hate him. And he has been rebuilding Russia through many reforms. He seems like an ally against the Stalinists. Or am I wrong and he is yet another part of the Communist/neocon machine?

  7. DaveE  May 29, 2012 at 10:28 am

    swensongreg, I think you should tell your pal that his greatest blessing is the BRAIN that God gave him, a bigger brain than all other creatures on Earth. Maybe he ought to USE the brain that God so graciously provided. Tell him that NOT using his BRAIN is the biggest insult to God imaginable.

    Maybe then you can get to the subtleties, like how the Old Testament is not scripture, but propaganda, how steel cannot be melted by kerosene in an oxygen deprived environment, etc. etc.

  8. Chris  May 29, 2012 at 9:04 am

    I’m going to have to agree and disagree. It depends on the person. With some people honey will work better but the guy as described above in his own email seems so far out of it that I think a little bit tougher approach is needed. Of course I dont know the guy and if I did I may rethink that approach. It all depends on the person.

    Sometimes a harsher approach is more likely to work, sometimes a kinder one. This gentleman already knows that Greg disagrees with him. Simply saying that again likely wont change anything. Being a tad harsher, even incredulous just might make him rethink his own position, or at least cause him to look closer at 9/11 and Israels brutal policies and the power AIPAC etc.

    If being honest about topics like Israel and 9/11 is an attack on ones core ideology perhaps that ideology needs to be attacked. If he really is that far gone perhaps a guy like that just cant be swayed by any amount of evidence and both of our tactics would prove fruitless. I suspect thats most likely in this mans case.

  9. The Rahnameh  May 29, 2012 at 8:42 am

    Chris, there is eternal wisdom in catching more flies with honey. The Persians say, “cut their heads off with cotton balls”. Almost all cultures resonate this belief, almost like the golden rule.

    While you are 100% right, a simple reconfiguration of your tone would go much farther in convincing your words are important to someone who thinks a Bible with a King’s name on it is the word of God (verbatim). Empathy is a powerful tool. Let them know how they can serve God better rather than to try and convince them that their entire basic core ideology of existence is corrupted and they need to wake up.

    Otherwise, you’re going to find yourself fighting a long of futile uphill battles. This technique is like martial arts (using your opponents weight/momentum against them). You are on point with David Ray Griffin.

  10. The Rahnameh  May 29, 2012 at 8:30 am

    First, a step back. I am not sure how the conversation started, but as you may already know, it is always best to move forward on the basis of humor and iteratively. In other words, lightheartedly. Do not go to a person that is cookie cutter (regardless of faction) and expect them to swallow the facts when the facts can fill two Fort Knoxes. In order to accept the facts, they have to first eschew their false reality. This is an uphill battle, one you may inevitably lose.

    The better plan is to work within the individuals’ context – similarly to how the Zionist world plan uses Kabbalism to translate the Talmud/Marxist/One World Government decree for its Christian audience via Freemasonry. Ask him what happens to those who exploit Israel’s name and if it is at all possible. Then talk scripture with him. By logic, if God curses those who curse Israel, then those individuals are at least afforded the opportunity to curse Israel in the first place. Thus, it follows that there is a possibility for an ONGOING wrongdoing, an ongoing cursing of Israel. Indeed, your friend points out that you may be cursing Israel in an ongoing fashion with your “9/11 truth”.

    What you can tell him is that his principles stand valid, and what you are trying to reveal to him is simply that there are people currently cursing Israel by exploiting its name for factually provable criminal activities. What you can hope for is some compromise within his own context. But all you can do is hope. That is all “they” can do as well. No hardcore 10101010 binary mind programming exists in the world. No exorcisms. No demons. Just completely mangled psychologies illustrative of the human condition. Something the Rabbis know VERY well, while the rest are stuck in mental traps created by the same.

  11. Chris  May 29, 2012 at 8:12 am

    What is truly “Anti-American” is swallowing obvious lies meant to in part use the US military to fight another countries wars.

    As for Fox, they are the worst option out of a set of horrible options that is the CORPORATE(not at all liberal) media. Who tells you that the media is “liberal”? The media. Wake up. You are still thoroughly brainwashed sir, with all due respect.

    Thats my retort to your email friend. Short and sweet and the right dose of tough love. Also I would send him a few good links showing Israeli and US involvement in 9/11(Bollyn for one) and links showing the towers and WTC7 were demolished(and why-tell him what was in WTC7). Finally, direct him to the work of Christian theologian and 9/11 activist David Ray Griffin. He even has a 9/11 book aimed at religious people I believe.

  12. swensongreg  May 29, 2012 at 7:22 am

    Not sure how to respond to all this. No, I think that 911 was exactly what was reported. Osama on his own with the Taliban. There have been several conspiracy theories. Even a movie that can make people believe otherwise so to find supposed “facts” to support yet another theory is little more than anti-American rhetoric.
    As for Israel, I have to go to scripture and scripture alone as it remains the only infallible thing on earth. Israel as a Nation are Gods people. Scripture says “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you”. That said I also see Israel under attack throughout history and the enemy will easily lead people down a path to believe they are evil. He always has. I see that as yet another attack.
    As for FOX news, they are better than any other liberal media out there. I dislike their use of Catholics as an example of Christian thought and beliefs but it seems most media goes to that end.
    Greg as a Bible believing Christian I look and filter all news through how and if it is in line with scripture. Every real Christian needs to have a biblical world view. If it contradicts scripture I know I can dismiss it. I encourage you to use scriptural discernment to filter these things through. It will always be accurate and right on the money.

    Your thoughts? This was an email from a guy that I told 9/11 was an inside job. Help me tell him something REAL. He always uses his Christian rhetoric to me and it drives me mad that he is so blind to the real world. Can you please respond to his above letter to me? Thanks

  13. swensongreg  May 29, 2012 at 7:20 am

    Onawa, Got this reply from a person when I talk to him about Veterans Today Topics. This is how he responded when I told him Osama DID NOT DO 9/11. I need help from Veteran Today readers responding to this type of brainwashed reply. He states

    Momentum dictates it is time for an action plan given the foreseeable timeline ahead. Follow through on a POTUS re-election or, conversely, surviving another manifestation of Bush hell for four years should be planned in advance with special mind to the predictable reactions and consequences stemming from the execution of such a plan (in other words, a robust workflow). The plan needs only be a skeleton for others to follow and pitch in their contributions.

    I conceived this after reading the Protocols and realizing…hey, they beat me to the punch by a few centuries 😉 Bastids..

    They’ve prepared for dealing with this generation, I’ve read. The next generation will not know the difference. But underestimating what a common enemy does to the masses was a fatal flaw.

    Personally, I’ve boycotted MSM and feel that is a duty, a responsibility. The way I see it, not giving the masses an accurate portrayal of present day events has brought us here. We need a media (town crier) who is credible and precise. The rest will fall into place once the news is spread and a correction made in the form of outrage at local representatives. Then there will be elected politicians who stand beside their country and her citizens.

    Mr. Duff,
    It is impossible to comment on all the depth of this latest essay of yours. I hope lots of people read it, because it rings over and over again with truth. Especially the part directly pointing to coercion used to get men to fight. Anybody who thinks its a shiny democracy, and we are all voices steering our leaders is flat out wrong.
    Patton did indeed demand that the commies get dealt with immediately. It actually was the only sensible plan.
    He was right about the Soviets. Most of the East European Russians were long since dead by the end of the war. The Russian army that invaded Europe was primarily of Asian descent. They were conscripted by Stalin for the job.
    Stalin succeeded in his defeat of the German Wehrmacht primarily through the aircraft gifted to him via the Murmansk convoy. Gifted via American industrial might. Gifted over the thousands of dead merchant marine sailors. Even though Russian pilots were poorly trained, and no match for their German counterparts, they took to the skies as fighter/bombers, especially effective against dug in German positions. The Murmansk convoy was a shipping barrage, thousands of Kaisers’ welded together death traps loaded with planes, ammo, gas, you name it-all just given to the worst mass murderer in modern, if not all of Human history-Josef Stalin.
    Patton knew their was no coordination between Russian ground and air forces because he saw that their officer corps consisted of brutal, idiotic, dementos-the only types that escaped Stalin’s constant purges.
    Russian ground tactics were exactly what one would imagine. Russian ground forces massed and overwhelmed German forces by sheer numbers. They lost millions of men, thousands of tanks, countless aircraft, yet they would penetrate the thinly protected flanks of the German positions, and head directly to the German rear.
    This was the extent of Russian offensive action.
    Russian defensive action was myopically keyed to controlling the high ground. The commies could pack in massive amounts of firepower into very tight areas. It was this firepower that bled the German advance. While the commies, with their huge population could sustain massive casualties, the Germans simply could not.
    By the end of the war, the Russians did outrun their supplies. Stalin ordered 4 million, almost a quarter of his army, killed because he could not supply them.
    Despite the fact that Russia was huge, and Germany small, the Germans came mighty close to crushing the commies. Too bad for the world they couldn’t quite pull it off.

    A heavy dose of truth, a shock to the soul. Perhaps Senior Editor Duff’s best article ever. First time I have ever seen it laid out so clear. Gordon makes a strong argument that the NWO is just another form of the communism we helped set up under WW2 lend lease and afterwards. Had we listened to Gen. Patton, we wouldn’t have our own stasi queen Ms. J. Edgar Mary and her New American Gestapo. Many thanks for one of the best articles ever published anywhere. A fitting tribute to Memorial Day.

    Excellent piece. I posted it on my eclectic, but well trafficked Facebook page. To those of you here who believe that the country is lost, I tell you that it is just beginning to arise again. You may not see it from your vantage point, but it is happening. The thing is that most people won’t talk about it because they are quietly preparing for when things hit the skids. Right now, the Greeks are stripping their banks bare. When those banks are empty, that country will exit the euro zone IF they can get out the door past Spain and Italy. I am chatting to people over there daily. The awareness of the mess that we’re in is everywhere except possibly in Congress. There in D.C., they just talk louder and about sillier things in the hopes of keeping their farce going.

    I am convinced that things have to utterly collapse before real substantive change can occur. What used to be myopia among Americans has become a studied pretense of indifference. They are no longer willing to be “scared” into submission. Most of the people that I know are extremely angry. Right now, there are all kinds of traffic barricades going up in Texas in an effort to scratch the last bits of cash from an already strapped population. That is causing real anger there. I spoke to a friend in Arizona. She said that they had the barricades a couple of years ago. Now that there is absolutely no employment where she lives, the judges don’t even bother with fines. They can’t collect them.

    The stupidity of the current system will be its undoing. The million ways that they (the self-annointed “elite”) have found to steal via administrative fines, idiotic property taxes (we did not have those during the last Depression) and the other gouging that has gone on will just have to stop. There is no value to any of it anymore. These locusts in human clothing have stripped all the fields–NOW THEY HAVE NO CORN EITHER. Their stupidity is only exceeded by their greed.

    It was a great piece, Gordon.

    To those who wrote about the people from other lands who have died in our wars, I apologize on behalf of myself. To the mothers who lost children in those wars, I grieve with you. To those of you who served and were treated so badly when you returned, I am angry for you.

    It is up to all of us to make things change by DEFUNDING this abominable system. We need to stop buying from it, begin bartering and seriously disengage. They need us far more than we will ever need them. Duff is right. There would be no wars if nobody went.

    Great article, Gordon. By the way, you’re no longer a ‘ tall but skinny target ‘ but instead a highly visible source of truth with an army of vets beside you and behind you.

    If you like Jim Stone’s investigative reporting, help him continue his work with your donations or buy one of his CDs. He’s living hand to mouth at the moment and relies on his supporters sending him money.

  26. Soldat  May 28, 2012 at 10:40 am

    @ Gordon – yeah, I’ve known about the “fake” bin Laden for years. As soon as I saw the video BushCo released I knew we were being fed bullshit because the actor didn’t even remotely look like OBL..

    It’s depressing to see what has been done to our country – and no matter how persuasive the argument or how bullet proof the facts one uses the American lemmings simply ignore anything which doesn’t fit the pre-chewed goo (propaganda) they’ve been fed.

    I received a response to my cross posting this article – I was (again) accused of antisemitism. The fools refuse to hold the Israelis accountable for ANYTHING!

  27. boonie rat 70  May 28, 2012 at 10:05 am

    Mr.Duff ,thanks for posting another part of the puzzle . I served with the most decorated soldier in the Viet Nam War , Jorge Otero , who ,on his 5th tour , had become very ‘disenchanted ‘ with the brass and the mission ,and in many conversations in the bush, enlightened my 19 year old mind about War and Men . Later when i came across the Thomas Mitose story and the complicit activity between the Japanese and the U.S. before Pearl Harbor, using Mitose [ a personal friend of Ike Eisenhower ]as the messenger ,i became convinced darker forces were active under the surface . now, what to do .

  28. Gordon Duff  May 28, 2012 at 7:24 am

    I worked for Reagan in another capacity. I bore very personal witness to massive criminality as Washington built its own parallel CIA as the real one couldn’t run drugs well enough.

    But then, I am imagining this.

    We lack a name branded enemy now since bin Laden has been killed again….first he had to die despite all the medical care we had given him, American and Pakistani hospitals, then, a decade after his burial, we kill him again, now an 82 year old Pakistani whose body was supposedly thrown into the Indian Ocean after a thousand mile helicopter ride.

    Reminds me of one of the phony SITE Intelligence (Israeli) bin Laden’s. This one we tracked down to an auto repair shop in Haifa.

    He was almost a foot shorter than the real bin Laden but is responsible for at least one video made after 2001.

    Look this up..look for announcements from Leon Panetta and Robert Gates that “bin Laden has not been seen since 2001.)

    Take that as a clue.

    They said it.

  29. Gordon Duff  May 28, 2012 at 7:17 am

    He just left. Fetzer was here for breakfast.

  30. Soldat  May 28, 2012 at 6:58 am

    I took the liberty of re-posting this article on a bulletin board I frequent just to see if it would make a dent on the closed minds of the people on that board, while there are some very bright people there I have no illusion that it will penetrate the layers of lies and propaganda the people have absorbed. Most likely they will read to the point where Gordon said Patton would have used Reagan for pistol practice and then blow a gasket since most Americans have been trained to worship Reagan.

    I was serving in the U.S. Army during his presidency, though I was young and naive my first clue (and political awakening) came when the Marines in Beirut were murdered. (by the Israelis though at the time I didn’t realize it was them)

    Up to that point I had intended to do the full 30 years in service and retire, but when I saw Reagan’s response to the attack I lost faith in the government of the U.S. and realized that those Marines would never be avenged and that I too was just as expendable as they were.

    Over the last few months I’ve been working on organizing the local Tea Party and Occupy movements, my goal was to use fellow veterans as leaders and create a new political machine to take on the establishment. I have failed miserably as I’ve been unable to dent the false reality the Tea Party people live in and the folks from Occupy are just as short sighted.

    The “narrative” the American people have been fed is virtually bullet proof and it’s effect is insidious. Even though I’ve shown them how they have been played by the reptile minded overseers of this country they still refuse to acknowledge the truth of what I’ve said. (read “Black Boomerang” by Sefton Delmer to understand what’s been done to us)

    I still hold out hope though, mainly because I know there are other good men out there – the problem is finding them. Keep up the fight Gordon, without voices like yours there would be no hope at all.

    Amen to that specially all of the innocent people killed in Iraq, in Lebanon, in Palestine, in Afghanistan , in Vietnam, in Cambodia,and all the innocent civilians victims of wars.

  32. Charlotte NC Bill  May 28, 2012 at 5:00 am

    The military Rades flight path data is correct…the NTSB’s is the whole video…it explains what Dr. Fetzer’s been talking about…from another angle and is rather convincing…

  33. Youssef - Beirut  May 28, 2012 at 4:42 am

    May the soul of all those who died for this nation, AND the soul of all those who were killed by this nation, rest in peace.

  34. mpennery  May 28, 2012 at 4:28 am

    Yeah, when you get to the end of the road of destruction and turn and look back, the reality of what you’ve done causes you to find all kinds of reasons, justifications and excuses. Call me naive. Call me idealistic but you get what you choose. I still remember my choice. Fresh out of high school I was on the way to joining one of the academies. There was only one problem, I knew that doing so would eventually lead to being told to kill someone and I knew I never wanted to kill a person or be told to. That’s the choice where you failed. Someone handed you a gun and told you to point it at another person for reasons you had nothing to do with and didn’t understand and you took it and you did it. And now you want to blame someone else for your choice.
    I read all this and I can’t help but be reminded that most humans are primitive barbarians and if all of you had simply said “NO” when someone told you to go and kill, none of this shit would have ever happened and we wouldn’t be reading histories of how it all went wrong.
    Call me naive, I don’t care. It’s the damn truth. Stop following illegal orders. Stop killing for money. And it all ends.

  36. Sami Jamil Jadallah  May 28, 2012 at 2:44 am

    Thank you Gordon for this great moral piece. The American people who alway pay with blood and money the costs of these wars should know why and how and for whom we engaged in all these wars. Over $2 Trillions simply wasted on two useless wars, trillions that could have rebuilt our entire nation with Zero unemployment making America a true paradise. The thing I could never understand is why those responsible for these wars got away with it, got away with murder and fleecing of the treasury. I think the first change we need to do is Congress, the source of all evil and corruption in America. May the soul of all those who died for this nation rest in peace.

  37. Aletheia  May 27, 2012 at 11:46 pm

    Great article uncle Gordy.

    This is why some of us kids hang around at the corners just so that we can listen and learn from what the folk which has eaten more salt and has seen more sunlight, has experienced…. for the urgency of responsibility we have.

    Yes, VT isn’t a whistleblowers’ site. Some people may be too quick to label others and then start offering torture as is prescribed only in the documents that nobody else knows about. I’ll stop here, before I get into a harmless rambling-mode.

    Thanks much again VT. May God keep you and your families and fortify the causes you’re for.

    Best G Duff writing in months:

    “While we were told to watch for ”the left,” the ”liberals,” a real totalitarianism came to us in wolves clothing from the right, behind every “Neocon” is a Stalinist in disguise, hiding behind class envy or manufactured wars. This is the old Comintern disguised as the Israel lobby or peddling “family values” and ”Christian virtue,” all a sham, all a cocoon for what we now know to be as the real communist infiltrators, playing Americans like a broken fiddle this Memorial day like so many others.”


    The capstone on the project is the stratification of knowledge. While the world is in despair, the few advance their technologies to further separate their power disparity to lord over the peons.

    The Rothschilds sought to control the land of the Aryans, Iran, and now to destroy it. Instead, they find themselves playing an Iranian game — chess. In Iran, the virtual “Alamo” against the ZioBanking Cabal, America’s Cowboys have a strong international friend with potent resources. Cyrus the Great’s Bill of Rights looks remarkably similar to the one America’s greatest have died to upkeep. Iranians are admitted to love Americans for a reason, and it isn’t because the US Navy downed an Iranian airliner full of civilians and covered it up after the CIA overthrow the democracy in the country and send it into a, now, 60 year+ hell cycle. The reason is because Iranians believe in America, and that for which She stands. And now, Iranians and Americans share a proximate and common foe that works like a parasite entrenched in world governments.

    The psychopaths dictating world events will not give up power without great violence. They will only go down fighting and take as much of humanity with them as they can. Therefore change is unlikely without the participation of honorable and aware active-duty and veteran military and intelligence operatives worldwide.

    For this reason it’s uplifting to see that military veterans such as Gordon Duff and others are aware of the seriousness of our situation and are participating in these times of momentous change.

    Thank you and good luck to all of us.

  40. Charlotte NC Bill  May 27, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    Yup…And that’s what makes all the difference between a Webster Tarpley, wayne Madsen, Jim Stone, Gordon Duff, Dr. fetzer and a shill like Limbaugh…

    I took the oath longer ago than I care to remember. It means something to me that I can’t articulate. Not a pension or a bonus or a medal or a retirement check or PX privileges.

    We can’t afford to get it wrong again….

    Michael Stubbings:
    If you begin seeking truth, yet your journey ends once you reach Zionism, then you are not a truth seeker at all.

    What you allow yourself to become is, a validation of Programming seeker. Really, not much of a difference between you and those you claim suffer from Cognitive Dissonance. You do as well, you are just too blinded by well-crafted propaganda to realize it.

    You merely seek that which will uphold your Programmed illusion of truth. Your mind was already made up once you reached the level of Zionism, so you need that which confirms your established Programming..

    Truth is, truth needs no defense, for real and honest seekers of truth seek not to uphold or deny evidence.. We seek to evolve.

    Conformity and denial, are simply prisons for the mind.

  45. wolf  May 27, 2012 at 4:53 pm

    Gordon, I think you have come up with the perfect Memorial Day essay…thought-provoking, powerful and humbling. Thank you.

    Pat Tillman didn’t have a four-star rank or distinguished military career but he somehow comes to mind as a contemporary parallel to General Patton. Someone who enthusiastically signed up to fight for his country, only to learn the truth in the field…and was assassinated before he could return home and blow the lid off.

  46. DaveE  May 27, 2012 at 4:35 pm

    Great history, Gordon. All I’d like to add is that the “communists” from Russia are mostly just like us, stupid, naive suckers who have been duped into doing the dirty work for their puppet masters, members of the Chosen Race and their nasty little Bolshevik club.

    Their strategy is always the same: keep Muslims fighting Christians, Democrats fighting Republicans, “communists” fighting “freedom fighters”, the working class fighting the Unions (which they control through infiltration of the “bosses”) and on and on.

    This Memorial Day, I propose that we remember a.) Our freedom IS worth fighting for, with words certainly but with bullets if necessary. b.) exactly WHO it is that hates OUR freedom.

    Thanks for all you do.
