Carnage in Norway – Refreshing the Narrative

War-making storylines tend to lose their steam. Sustained warfare requires more than just a plausible Evil Doer. A credible narrative is also essential. To remind us who to hate, who better than a murderous Nordic Muslim-hater?

Imbedded Crises

Those old enough to remember the promise of a post-Cold War peace dividend also recall how we segued seamlessly from a global Cold War to a global War on Terrorism.

Crisis by Consensus

Greece is in crisis because it has too much debt. The US is in crisis because it needs to issue more debt.

The U.S. Israeli Train Wreck

Today’s train wreck should have been foreseen when Weizzman lied to Truman about Zionist intentions. As with every U.S. president since, Truman was deceived. by Jeff Gates

Is Pakistan Being Cast as Next Plausible Evil Doer?

Conspiracy theorists assure us that Osama bin Laden was killed in December 2001 and his body put on ice in—of course—an undisclosed location. If the recent killing of bin Laden was a lie, who were the liars? All 79 members of SEAL Team 6, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the U.S. State Department, the White House and 16 U.S. intelligence agencies. All conspired to have us believe that he was killed in Pakistan.

The Hate Mongers Among Us

Hate is a harsh word. As the counterpoint to love, hate reigns supreme among those emotions that the faith traditions seek to expunge from the human heart.

Israel Strikes Back

The Seduction of the Knowledge-Based Society

The appeal of the Knowledge Society is apparent. Who could object to nations preparing their citizens for the 21st century? Yet unless knowledge is changed, the result could worsen an already dangerous situation.

Commonsense Money

Since 1913, debt has been the only way that we in the U.S. have known to create money. Choking on debt yet short on money, Americans are reeling from too much monetary theory and too little commonsense

WikiLeaks and the Sound of Silence

The scope and scale of WikiLeaks is a marvel to behold. Some praise it as the ultimate form of democracy. Others as the epitome of the most sacred of liberty’s principles: the right to know. Yet the real story here is not what’s revealed but what’s withheld. The marvel is not what we now know but what is already known that is left unsaid. And what is given an interpretive spin by those newspapers granted priority access.

Wikileaks: More Israeli Game Theory Warfare?

Hate Mongers Among Us (4 part video)


When Will We See the Next Mass Murder?

The legitimacy of Israel is no longer threatened. It’s already lost. Long gone. Kaput. Founded by extremists and terrorists, it’s been downhill ever since.

Playing the Never Again Card, Again

The phony intelligence used to induce our March 2003 invasion of Iraq has been dusted off. This time it’s being deployed to take us into Iran. Same scam. Same storyline. Same fraud—even featuring some of the same players.

John McCain: A Closer Look at Evil (Part 15)

If John McCain chooses not to resign, how do we as Americans protect national security from an agenda set by the transnational criminal syndicate that produced his political career?

John McCain: A Closer Look at Evil (Part 14)

John McCain has proven himself a remarkably effective Israeli asset since his election to Congress in 1982. That conduct continues a family tradition.

John McCain: A Closer Look at Evil (Part 13)

When treason charges are (belatedly) filed against John McCain, what will be his defense?

John McCain: A Closer Look at Evil (Part 12)

Given the consistently ruinous impact of McCain’s conduct on U.S. national security, he has gained strong (and thus far silent) opposition from within senior ranks of the U.S. military.

John McCain: A Closer Look at Evil (Part 11)

Now is the time to indict both John McCain and Joe Lieberman for treason. McCain escaped that charge the first time around.

John McCain: A Closer Look at Evil (Part 10)

At age 74, McCain has done enough damage. He may yet sell us on an invasion of Iran though Israel, not Iran, has a nuclear arsenal.

John McCain: A Closer Look at Evil (Part 9)

What can you say about someone whose profiled personality dysfunctions enabled him to be manipulated by others throughout the entirety of his tenure in public office?

John McCain – A Closer Look at Evil (Part 8)

The facts suggest that John McCain should not be in a federal campaign. He should be in a federal prison. Who has an even lower opinion of McCain than his fellow Senators? Answer: our senior military leaders.

John McCain – A Closer Look at Evil (Part 7)

Knowing McCain’s role in the psy-ops that took us to war, why would anyone anywhere want this classic asset back in the Senate? Why would the Senate allow it?

John McCain: A Closer Look at Evil (Part 6)

McCain’s political path to the U.S. Senate offers a case study in organized crime, American-style. The damage he’s done is being chronicled in this Evil Doer series.

John McCain: A Closer Look at Evil (Part 5)

McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform removed a key constraint on influence peddling by Zionists and organized crime. When you see one, you find the other hovering nearby.

John McCain; A Closer Look at Evil (Part 4)

With McCain’s help, Ashkenazi organized crime has steadily gained more political power. Its operatives already wield influence disproportionate to their numbers, indifferent to their place of residence and often contrary to America’s interests.

John McCain: A Closer Look at Evil (Part 3)

The political career of John McCain offers a case study in how organized crime operates in plain sight. When he was selling us on the war in Iraq, was he working for the same syndicate that sold us the subprime fraud?

John McCain: A Closer Look at Evil (Part 2)

Will John McCain resign and attempt to fade into obscurity? Or will he remain and be disgraced? Will he escape indictment? Or will informed Americans force him from office?

Is Phil Angelides Enabling the Pillaging of Veterans’ Pensions?

Now widely acknowledged as a cover-up, the findings of the 911 Commission have been thoroughly discredited.

The facts point to trans-generational organized crime as playing a key role in both cover-ups.

Sayanim: Israeli Operatives in the U.S.

Americans know that something fundamental is amiss. They sense—rightly—that they are being misled no matter which political party is doing the leading.
