“‘And all arithmetic and calculation have to do with number?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘And they both appear to lead the mind towards truth?’ ‘Yes, in a very remarkable manner.’ Then this is knowledge of the kind for which we are seeking, having a double use, military and philosophical; for the soldier must learn the art of number or he will not know how to organize his army, and the philosopher also, because he has to rise out of the transient world and grasp reality, and therefore he must be an arithmetician.”
“Then my noble friend, geometry will draw the soul towards truth, and create the spirit of philosophy, and raise up that which is now unhappily allowed to fall down. Nothing will be more than likely to have such an effect.”–Plato, The Republic
For example, if both pairs of opposite angles of a quadrilateral are congruent, then it follows logically that the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. If one angle is supplementary to both consecutive angles in a quadrilateral, the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. If the diagonals of a quadrilateral bisect each other, the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. If one pair of opposite sides of a quadrilateral are both parallel and congruent, the quadrilateral is a parallelogram.
These are brute facts and cannot be tampered with. Geometry is filled with them, and they are so many that some students cannot keep up with them. But the simple fact is that we are to make connections in mathematics and other subjects but we are not to make connections when it comes to the real world!
For example, it is common knowledge that both Israel and America and much of Europe have been supporting the Syrian rebels. We know that they are largely terrorists. The Washington Times has finally joined a chorus of other news outlets such as the New York Times, the LA Times, the Wall Street Journal, and even CNN, saying that “several groups fighting with the FSA [Syrian rebel] are affiliated with al-Qaeda.” The article from which those words came is entitled, “The United States, and President Obama, Arm Terrorists.”
Moreover, the same terrorist groups which America and the neoconservative machine are currently supporting have been responsible for killing “large numbers of U.S. military personel.”
And Israel has constantly been watching the kind of weapons that Western nations send to the Syrian rebels, and “and it’s consulted with U.S. officials about which weapons they consider too sophisticated to be passed to the groups that are battling to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad, according to Israeli officials with knowledge of the situation.”
The CIA also did send weapons to the rebels through Turkey, and Turkey itself has supported terrorist groups. Yet, instead of calling the rebels terrorists, the Washington Post call them “moderates in the Free Syrian Army,” even though it is widely known by both Republicans and Democrats that the Syrian rebels are functions of terrorist cells.
More recently, the British newspaper The Independent has reported that at least one hundred British jihadists have gone to Syria to fight al-Assad. The same Syrian terrorist groups have routinely killed their captives.
Secretary of State John Kerry for example has vowed to provide $60 million to the rebels. Kerry declared, “We had a discussion about the types of weapons that are being transferred and by whom. We did discuss the question of the ability to try to guarantee that it’s going to the right people and to the moderate Syrian opposition coalition.”
This is not new at all. Both the U.S. and Britain (under the leadership of William Hague) had been transferring tons of weapons to the rebels. So far, at least 3,000 tons of weapons had been delivered to those terrorist groups. During the same week, the rebels detained at least 20 United Nations troops.
In other words, when the weapons go “to the right people,” they used the weapons to capture United Nations troops. Kerry and the Obama administration, by logical deduction, are accomplices in all this Zionist war. Whether they like it or not, they are “born-again neocons” who support terrorism.
Because of this Zionist war, “Around 7,000 to 8,000 Syrians are leaving the country daily,” and “With a million people in flight, millions more displaced internally, and thousands of people continuing to cross the border every day, Syria is spiraling towards full-scale disaster.”
Kerry, like Hilary Clinton before him, declare that Assad is “out of time and must be out of power.” Perhaps the Zionist regime both in Israel and America think that the Iranian and Syrian officials are just dumb. They expect rational people in the Middle East to believe that they are fighting terrorism while supporting terrorism.
The logic is now pretty clear: If you support terrorists and provide weapons to terrorist groups, does that make you a peacemaker? Doesn’t that make you a supporter—perhaps the supporter—or terrorism? Somehow the neoconservative machine thinks that everyone in the world is stupid. They keep saying that Iran is a terrorist state but the same neoconservative gangsters are supporting terrorism. How in the world is that logic compatible with the West? And how can they not see that this is madness (unless they are doing this deliberately)?
Aquinas declared that lust makes a person blind. The Zionist ideology in the twentieth century blinds politicians and smart people. Iranian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallen responded when it was announced that Kerry was going to support the Syrian rebels, “If they truly wanted a political settlement they wouldn’t punish the Syrian people and finance groups with so-called nonlethal aid. Who are they kidding?”
Despite all of that, Lee Smith and Max Boot of the neoconservative magazines the Weekly Standard and Commentary (respectively) insinuated that Kerry and the Obama administration were not doing enough to oust Assad. Boot in particular wants the entire Western world to arm the Syrian terrorists now:
“Providing a small amount of nonlethal assistance isn’t going to change the situation on the ground, but a major infusion of Western arms would do that. Even more significant would be a decision to send some Western Special Operations forces to work with the rebels, train them, and possibly even to call in airstrikes to aid their advance as was done in Libya in 2011 and in Afghanistan in the fall of 2001. The imposition of a no-fly zone would be another important step toward ending the Bashar Assad regime and stopping the civil war”
Even back in 2012, Lee Smith told the American people that “on Syria, follow McCain.” And what was McCain advocating? McCain declared that we as Americans ought to have supported the Syrian terrorists, despite the fact that McCain knew very well that they were and are still largely terrorists. Instead, McCain defended those terrorists by saying that they are “not fighting and dying because they are Muslim extremists.”
McCain continued, “We spend almost $1 trillion a year on the military. And we can’t take out air defenses of Syria? That is an horrific waste of the taxpayers’ dollars.” And Smith responded, “McCain is right.” McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Joe Liebermann were some of the gangsters who were pushing America into perpetual wars in the Middle East.
Boot, whether he likes it or not, is following the ideologies of Leon Trotsky and Vladimir Lenin. The Bolshevik Revolution was responsible for the death of millions, and Boot indirectly is exploring the same ideology in the Middle East.
The million-dollar question is simply this: where will Kerry get the money and transfer it to the Syrian terrorist groups? From the average American who is trying hard to support his family and from a failed economy. How much did the American economy grow within the last quarter of 2012? 0.1 percent. This is actually “far below the growth needed to get unemployment back to normal.”
More recently, when it was announced that a sequestration was about to take place and when just about everything would be affected that disaster, including even school lunch program, fifth column AIPAC was planning to send 13,000 of its representatives to Washington in order to make an exception for Israel. (Yes, Virginia, there is a Jewish Lobby.)
Even before it happened, Douglas Bloomfield of The Jewish Week declared that this could prove detrimental to the Jewish cause: “This could prove a very risky strategy at a time when millions of Americans will be feeling the bite of the sequestration debacle, from the defense budget to the school lunch program. But not aid to Israel, which will be untouched if AIPAC gets its way. This resolution could easily backfire and damage Israel far more than any cuts in its very generous grant aid program.”
As Jason Glaser rightly points out, “So grieving American families may have to wait longer to bury their loved ones who died fighting in Afghanistan, but Israel won’t suffer one bit.”
The city of Detroit in particular has been shown to be in “financial woes,” and Governor Rick Snyder himself declares that “There is probably no city that is more financially challenged in the entire United States. If you look at the quality of services for citizens it’s ranked among the worst. So we went from the top to the bottom over the last 50 or 60 years.”
The budget cuts will also affect military school districts, where class sizes will be almost double and teachers will have a horrible time trying to teach and discipline a vast number of students at the same time. This will more than likely make teaching unbearable. School administrators have already been panicked by this. Universities such as Johns Hopkins have already reduced their researchers working in laboratories.
On the second day of this month, Jackie Calmes of the New York Times told us,
“The latest budget impasse ushered in a new round of austerity on Saturday, with the nation facing reduced federal services, canceled contracts, job furloughs and layoffs… The spending cuts that began to take effect Friday, known as sequestration and totaling about $1 trillion through 2023, come on top of $1.5 trillion in reductions that Mr. Obama and Congress committed to in 2011, mainly from the accord that averted the nation’s first debt default.”
The article continued, “Private and government forecasters project that sequestration alone will cost about 700,000 jobs this year and will shave at least a half percentage point from economic growth. The Congressional Budget Office now forecasts a falling deficit but stubbornly high unemployment in coming years.”
On the same day, Michael D. Shear of the New York Times continued to emphasize that this sequestration will affect just about everything in the economic and political landscape. Moreover, our precious college graduates are still being buried beneath the avalanche of student loans, and most of those students are going to be in debt for the rest of their natural lives.
In other words, the average American has been ripped off—and AIPAC does not care whether you sent your precious sons and daughters to die in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, etc. Thousands upon thousands of precious Americans have been maimed, died for a lie, and that lie was concocted for Israel and for King Bibi. Recently, it has been declared that the U.S. will once again make Israel a “major strategic ally.” In other words, Israel lies to America all the time, but we still have to make the regime an ally.
AIPAC and the Zionist regime do not care if the economy is a dismal failure both in Europe and America; their concern is that you, your family, and the average American people and the rest of us ought to send our money to support a state that has sponsored terrorism on a large scale. And how does the American government plan to save money in the midst of the economic collapse? Some officials are setting free illegal aliens from detention centers!
Virtually every country in the world, including South Korea where this writer currently resides, has a tight security system. But in America illegal aliens will be set free from detention centers without any justification. And who is pushing this nonsense? Homeland Security Chairman Janet Napolitano, a Zionist shill.
Napolitano did an interview with the Jewish Daily Forward during which she declared that “Jews face special risks that require vigilance, though there is no ‘specific, credible threat’ against Jewish targets…”
How is that for common sense? There is no “specific, credible threat,” but there is a “special risk that requires vigilance”! Vigilance from what? From no specific, credible threat? One needn’t be an intellectual to see that this is generally dumb.
Napolitano is a lawyer, and here she has to drop her legal scholarship and embrace ideology. Once again, as Daniel J. Flynn points out, “when ideology is your guide, you’re bound to get lost.”
While this is still going on, America is yet to pay the full consequence of the war in Iraq. Jewish economist Joseph E. Stiglizt declared in 2008 that the war was going to cost at least $3 trillion. More recently, Brown University has done some studies on this very issue and has reported that the war is going to be more than $6 trillion with interest payments.
Here is again the million-dollar question: who is going to pay the bill? The neoconservatives? Bush? The oligarchcs?
You be the judge.
President Obama just went to Israel this past Thursday saying that “Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually develop a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close.”
We? Who’s “we”? Certainly not the intelligence community! And this “we” certainly resembles the voice of “King Bibi.” Last month, Iranian officials declared that Iran was not building nuclear weapons.
So we have to think a little here: two government officials are making contradictory statements. The neoconservative/Zionist regime has been telling us for years that Iran had been building nuclear weapons, and Iranian officials say they are not building nuclear weapons.
Who is actually telling the truth? The only way to find out is to look at history. The Zionist gangsters have been wrong for more than ten years, and Iran has been right about its nuclear program all along.
