Smoking is good for you?

 

 

Smoking is good for you?

 

Why do governments want to ban smoking? I mean, it’s not as if they actually care about their citizens’ health. If so, they would spend more on healing than killing. But, more to the point, they would address the far more personally and socially destructive effects of alcohol and refined sugar, (which of course, are one and the same) evidenced by alcohol fuelled late night violence and sex between drunken obese teenagers (and beyond), who cram casualty departments and make our city centres no-go areas until the sun comes up. Yet, regardless of this epidemic, because the sugar/alcohol multinationals’ influence is so powerful, health is a minor distraction – however, tobacco companies carry the same political influence, so this is not the reason. In addition, governments make billions annually from smoking: taxes, needless to say, but also in terms of unneeded pensions and the extraordinary savings in health care which escalate dramatically in old age.

Given this perspective, is it not strange that whilst not exactly pushing it, (they would not want to appear heartless now, would they?) governments do not offer smoking the same tacit approval they give to alcohol, junk food and gambling – all of which are many times more socially destructive?

So why do they hate smoking so much?

It was a question that had tumbled around in my head for months. The best I could come up with, was that they wanted to use the fields for a more lucrative crop. But what, barring illicit drugs, could generate such revenue? (Particularly with Heroin production back up to pre Taliban levels.) It just did not make sense.

Then, by chance i happened upon ‘Political Ponerology’ by Andrew Lobaczewski, which considers how wicked, power hungry people gradually take control over society. And he points out, that the last organised attempt to stifle smoking on the scale now under way in Europe and the United States was in pre-war Germany, under the Nazis. (P.156)

You see, what Nazi scientists discovered very soon into their research, was that carbon-monoxide, a central component of tobacco smoke, creates resistance to pathocratic influence: i.e. imbibers are more likely to question and less likely to blindly follow orders from psychopathic leadership (perhaps we could think of it as ‘attitude’, as symbolised by ’50s icons like James Dean and Marlon Brando). What is more, research also suggests ‘second-hand smoke’, as breathed by children of smokers, may in fact immunise them against the influence of psychopaths. Hardly useful, one would suggest, if the objective is filling heads with supremacist beliefs and obtaining undivided loyalty.

To Nazi leadership, with their early, unsophisticated attempts at propaganda, reducing peoples’ critical thinking and increasing their susceptibility to messages of hate and fear and identification were central to their objective. So while the government made supply of tobacco increasingly difficult, and smoking areas increasingly limited, the Nazi propaganda machine set about pushing the party line, vilifying and condemning “red-man’s weed” and persecuting those who would smoke it. It was a campaign begun in the mid 1930s and continued and intensified until they were finally overthrown. (The anti-tobacco campaign of the Nazis – http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/313/7070/1450 )

Today, when one considers the enormous advances in psychological warfare, be it for product sales, national/religious/corporate identity or fear of the other, and the increasingly sophisticated delivery techniques, the need for smoking to be eradicated becomes blazingly obvious. What government or corporation (or religion) in their right mind, whose primary goals are submission and association, cannot see the benefit of losing a few million in taxes, pensions, operations… for the benefit of a compliant, malleable ready made workforce, and market. From such a perspective, considering our current political and corporate leadership, it is clear, smoking never stood a chance.

What a good job we have a free and independent news media to stand up for the citizen, expose authoritarian lies and ensure governments and corporations cannot cynically manipulate and frighten people into servicing their nefarious goals… oh, err… looks like we’re in big trouble.

Better get puffing guys!

A day to remember from 1933

Posted by Ognir

http://conspiracycentral.info/index.php?showtopic=16153

Long before the Hitler government began restricting the rights of the German Jews, the leaders of the worldwide Jewish community formally declared war on the “New Germany” at a time when the U.S. government and even the Jewish leaders in Germany were urging caution in dealing with the new Hitler regime. The war by the international Jewish leadership on Germany not only sparked definite reprisals by the German government but also set the stage for a little-known economic and political alliance between the Hitler government and the leaders of the Zionist movement who hoped that the tension between the Germans and the Jews would lead to massive emigration to Palestine. In short, the result was a tactical alliance between the Nazis and the founders of the modern-day state of Israel – a fact that many today would prefer be forgotten.

For 40 years, the French government has been fighting a secret war in Africa, hidden not only from its people, but from the world. It has led the French to slaughter democrats, install dictator after dictator – and to fund and fuel the most vicious genocide since the Nazis. Today, this war is so violent that thousands are fleeing across the border from the Central African Republic into Darfur – seeking sanctuary in the world’s most notorious killing fields

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – North Korea pledged to detail its nuclear programs and disable all activities at its main reactor complex by year’s end, then signed a wide-ranging reconciliation pact with South Korea Thursday promising to finally seek a peace treaty to replace the 1953 cease-fire that ended the Korean War.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Il and South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun also said they would open regular links across their heavily fortified border under the deal struck a day after the North made its firmest commitment yet to nuclear disarmament.

They surrounded a monastery on Weiza Yandar Street. All the roughly 200 monks living there were forced to stand in a row and the security forces beat their heads against a brick wall. When they were all covered in blood and lay moaning on the ground, they were thrown into a truck and taken away. “We are crying for our monks,” said the man, and then he was gone.

Bush Justice Department embraces torture as a tool for collecting intelligence

by Scott Horton

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=7002

The Bush Justice Department does have an essential law enforcement mission, though sometimes it seems to behave much more like a criminal syndicate. It warmly embraces the crime of torture as a tool for collecting human intelligence notwithstanding both its manifest illegality and immorality and the uniform view of intelligence professionals that torture consistently produces corrupted, inherently unreliable information. In so doing of course it is engaged in a fairly primitive game of self-protection. It can’t acknowledge the fundamental criminality of its conduct, so it turns the Justice Department into its consigliere. Three different lawyers in the office of legal counsel have rendered formal opinions giving a stamp of approval to a universal crime. Indeed, this sort of legal dexterity now seems to be accepted as a rite of passage for “movement” lawyers–a fact which is very revealing of the new character of the “movement.” It has nothing to do with ideals, and everything to do with personal fidelity. In each of these cases, the opinion boils down to the fundamental principle of the authoritarian state, namely: if the Leader authorizes it, then it must be okay. I can’t wait to see the intellectual conversion that will occur on January 20, 2009, when the opposition party furnishes the Executive.

Why Not Impeachment?

by Robert Parry

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=7001

The disclosure that the Bush administration secretly reestablished a policy of abusing “war on terror” detainees even as it assured Congress and the public that it had mended its ways again raises the question: Why are the Democrats keeping impeachment of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney “off the table”?

Dangerous Crossroads: US Sponsored War Games

by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=6997

US Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) has announced the conduct of major war games under Vigilant Shield 2008 (VS-08).

Vigilant Shield 2008 (15 to 20 October, 2007) is designed to deal with a “terrorist” or “natural disaster” scenario in the United States. The operation will be coordinated in a joint endeavor by the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security.

Yet, VS-08, which includes a massive deployment of the US Air Force resembles a war-time air scenario rather than an anti-terrorist drill. The VS-08 war games extend over the entire North American shelf. Canadian territory is also involved through Canada’s participation in NORAD. (See Nazemroaya, October 2007)

These war games are being conducted at an important historical crossroads, amidst mounting US pressures and threats to actually declare a “real war” on Iran.

VS-08 is predicated on the doctrine of preemptive warfare, with a vie to protecting the Homeland. The war games are coordinated with anti-terrorist drills directed against presumed Islamic terrorists.

1) What is the origin of Blackwater?
Blackwater USA was formed in 1997 to provide training support to military and law enforcement organizations. In 2002 Blackwater Security Consulting (BSC) was formed. They are the single beneficiaries of government no-bid contracts due to the amount of military and intelligence insiders from the Pentagon and CIA. In the new world order of mercenaries Blackwater is one of a growing number of outsourced pseudo-military security companies such as Aegis, DynCorp, Triple Canopy, Intercon, Steele Foundation, American Security Group, Blackhawk, Wackenhut and an Israeli company called Instinctive Shooting International (ISI). The men work for ISI, which describes its employees as “veterans of the Israeli special task forces from the following Israeli government bodies: Israel Defense Force (IDF), Israel National Police Counter Terrorism units, Instructors of Israel National Police Counter Terrorism units, General Security Service (GSS or ‘Shin Beit’), Other restricted intelligence agencies.” The company was formed in 1993. Its website profile says: “Our up-to-date services meet the challenging needs for Homeland Security preparedness and overseas combat procedures and readiness. ISI is currently an approved vendor by the US Government to supply Homeland Security services”.

Blackwater is rapidly expanding its operations, creating a new surveillance-blimp division, fleet of 20 planes, launching new training facilities in California and the Philippines, and increasingly setting its sights on the lucrative world of DHS contracts. It is clamoring to get into Darfur and has also hired Chilean troops trained under the brutal rule of Augusto Pinochet in addition to South African commandos from the Apartheid era.

2) What is the background of Erik Prince, the founder and CEO of Blackwater?
Blackwater’s owner and founder is Erik Prince, a former Navy SEAL. Erik Prince attended the Naval Academy, graduated from Hillsdale College, and was an intern in George H.W. Bush’s White House. Prince has contributed $168,000 to the Republican National Committee since 1998, and also has supported the candidacies of politicians such as President George W. Bush and Senator Tom Coburn. A CIA source with whom I spoke said that Prince is very tight with top agency officials and has a “green badge,” the security pass for contractors who have access to CIA installations. “He’s over there [at CIA headquarters] regularly, probably once a month or so,” this person told me. “He meets with senior people, especially in the D.O.” (The D.O., or Directorate of Operations, runs covert operations; last year, it was absorbed by the newly created National Clandestine Service). Blackwater founder Erik Prince shares Bush’s fundamentalist Christian views. He comes from a powerful Michigan Republican family and social circle, and his father, Edgar, helped Gary Bauer start the Family Research Council.

3) There have been reports that Blackwater is involved with extraordinary rendition torture flights. Is there any substance to this?
An investigation by the European Parliment on the CIA using British airports to execute ‘torture flights’, has uncovered fresh evidence that a plane repeatedly linked to the controversial programme landed in the UK in June. Further details indicate that on June 2, 2007, at 4:36 pm, the CASA-212 Aviocar Flight touched down at RAF Mildenhall Airfield in Suffolk, UK. Its registration number N964BW, clearly visible on the fuselage, identified it as a plane which the European Parliament says has been involved in ‘ghost flights’ to smuggle terrorist suspects to shadowy interrogation centres abroad.

Records show the plane is owned by Blackwater USA, a CIA contractor described as “the most secretive and powerful mercenary army on the planet”. An eyewitness, who previously worked as an RAF electronic warfare expert, said that as the plane – a CASA-212 Aviocar Flight #N964BW – taxied to a stop on the runway it was met by a US military Humvee. The vehicle contained four US security policemen armed with M16 assault rifles, who accompanied the camouflaged crew to the airport terminal.

A report last November by a European Parliament committee placed the plane – registration number N964BW – is on a list of “companies and aircraft used by the CIA for extraordinary rendition flights”. The plane was previously registered with the Bolivian army, and has been pictured on the ground in the Afghan capital Kabul within the past year. The American Federal Aviation Authority lists the plane as being operated by two companies, Aviation World Wide Services and a sister company, Presidential Airways.

The European Parliament committee report describes these as shell companies operating as subsidiaries of Blackwater USA, “an important contractor for the CIA and the US military” which bases the planes in Malta. Research by a further group, The American Centre for Media and Democracy, claims that flight-tracking internet technology shows the plane landed at least twice in the first six months of 2006 at Camp Peary, the U.S. naval reservation in Virginia known as The Farm and widely alleged to be a CIA training facility. Another smoking gun in Blackwater’s involvement in “extraordinary rendidtions” regards their Vice-Chairman J. Cofer Black. Who is a thirty-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency and was one of the key CIA people in Africa throughout the ’70s and ’80s. Particularly in support of the Apartheid regime in South Africa. J. Cofer Black is reputed to have essentially run the extraordinary rendition program. He was a key figure in the extraordinary rendition program, the government-sanctioned kidnap-and-torture program, and he’s now a major figure at Blackwater USA.

3) What was Blackwater’s role in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina?
To establish a precedent of using pseudo-military mercenaries without accountability or oversight domestically within the U.S. At the behest and aegis of the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA. Deputized by Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco their role was to was to stop looters and confront criminals. Many of the mercenaries had gold Louisiana state law enforcement badges and confirmed that they’d been deputized.

Jeremy Scahill interviewed Cofer Black–the former head of counterterrorism at the CIA, and now one of the top people at Blackwater–at a mercenary conference, and he told me that they sent a helicopter and a bunch of their guys down there without any contracts at first. Within days of their guys deploying down there, Blackwater was handed a very lucrative $409,000 contract–literally to guard a morgue in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

4) There have been widespread reports from witnesses and insiders of Blackwater’s murderous escapades. What are they?
In an October 1, 2007 Congressional report, based on 437 internal Blackwater incident reports as well as internal State Department correspondence, says that that Blackwater’s use of force “is frequent and extensive, resulting in significant casualties and property damage.” It notes that Blackwater’s contract authorizes it to use lethal force only to prevent “imminent and grave danger” to themselves or the people they are paid to protect.

“In practice, however,” the report says, “the vast majority of Blackwater weapons
discharges are pre-emptive, with Blackwater forces firing first at a vehicle or
suspicious individual prior to receiving any fire.” Among the incidents cited in the
report:

On June 25, 2005, a Blackwater team in Hillah fatally shot an Iraqi man, a father of
six, in the chest. The victim’s family complained to the State Department, which said
in an internal report that the Blackwater gunmen initially failed to report the killing
and tried to cover it up.

On Oct. 24, 2005, Blackwater guards fired on a car that failed to heed a warning to
stop. In the gunfire, a civilian bystander was hit in the head with a bullet, but
Blackwater personnel did not stop.

On Nov. 28, 2005, a Blackwater motorcade traveling to and from the Iraqi oil
ministry collided with 18 different vehicles. According to an internal Blackwater report of the incident, the statements from employees were “invalid, inaccurate, and at best, dishonest.” Two Blackwater employees were dismissed, but there was no other apparent action taken as a result.

On Dec. 24, 2006, a drunken Blackwater employee shot and killed a bodyguard for Iraq’s Shiite vice president, Adel Abdul-Mahdi. The AP previously reported the contractor had gotten lost on the way back to his barracks in Baghdad’s Green Zone and fired at least seven times when he was confronted by 30-year-old Raheem Khalaf Saadoun.

The guard was terminated by Blackwater. Within 36 hours of the shooting, the department allowed the 26-year-old contractor to be transported out of Iraq, according to a staff report. An unnamed State Department official then recommended Blackwater pay the guard’s family $250,000 as an “apology.”

But the Diplomatic Security Service, the department’s own law enforcement arm, said that was too much money and might prompt other Iraqis “to ‘try to get killed'” in order to provide for their families, according to the report. “In the end, the State Department and Blackwater agreed on a $15,000 payment,” the report says. Initial news coverage by Middle Eastern media of the killing said a “U.S. soldier” was responsible.

In a company e-mail obtained by the committee, a Blackwater employee said the mistake in the news “gets the heat off of us.”

On Sept. 16, 2007, 11 Iraqis were killed in a shoot-out involving Blackwater guards protecting a U.S. diplomatic convoy in Baghdad. Blackwater says its guards acted in self-defense after the convoy came under attack. Iraqi witnesses have said the shooting was unprovoked. The convoy of four Blackwater vehicles drove into
the square about half an hour after a bombing prompted another Blackwater team that was guarding a U.S. diplomat to rush from the area and back to
the Green Zone, the enclave in Baghdad where U.S. and Iraqi government agencies have headquarters. The police officer, whom CNN is identifying only as Sarhan, said the Blackwater guards “seemed nervous” as they entered the square, throwing water bottles at the Iraqi police posted there and driving in the wrong direction. He said traffic police halted civilian traffic to clear the way for the Blackwater team. Then, he said, the guards fired five or six shots in an apparent attempt to scare people away, but one of the rounds struck a car and killed a young
man who was sitting next to his mother, a doctor.

Sarhan said he and an undercover Iraqi police officer ran to the car but
they were unable to stop it from rolling forward toward the Blackwater
convoy. “I wanted to get his mother out, but could not because she was holding her
son tight and did not want to let him go,” Sarhan said. “They immediately
opened heavy fire at us.” “Each of their four vehicles opened heavy fire in all directions, they shot and killed everyone in cars facing them and people standing on the street,” Sarhan said. The shooting lasted about 20 minutes, he said.
“When it was over we were looking around and about 15 cars had been destroyed, the bodies of the killed were strewn on the pavements and road.”
Sarhan said no one ever fired at the Blackwater team.

“They became the terrorists, not attacked by the terrorists,” he said. “I saw parts of the woman’s head flying in front of me, blow up and then her entire body was charred,” he said. “What do you expect my reaction to be? Are they protecting the country? No. If I had a weapon I would have shot at them.”
Mohammed Abdul Razzaq was driving into Nusoor Square with his sister, her three children and his 9-year-old son Ali at the same time the Blackwater team arrived.
“They gestured stop, so we all stopped,” Razzaq said. “It’s a secure area so we thought it will be the usual, we would stop for a bit as convoys pass. Shortly after that they opened heavy fire randomly at the cars with no exception.”
“My son was sitting behind me,” he said. “He was shot in the head and his brains were all over the back of the car.” The others ducked and were spared, he said. He later counted 36 bullet holes in his car, six in his sister’s headrest.
“Anyone who got out of his car would be killed,” he said. “Anyone who would move was killed. Anyone sitting in a car was killed.”
“I saw a guy in a small car who got out to flee, they shot him and he hit the ground,” Razzaq said. “They fired at him again and again with his blood flowing in the street, but they continued to shoot him.”

Blackwater has had to fire dozens of guards over the past three years for problems ranging from misuse of weapons, alcohol and drug violations, inappropriate conduct and violent behavior, says the 15-page report from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. A total of 122 Blackwater mercenaries ahve been terminated by Blackwater, and is roughly one-seventh of the work force that Blackwater has in Iraq, a ratio that raises questions about the quality of the people working for the company. Blackwater has been involved in 195 shooting incidents since 2005, or roughly 1.4 per week. In more than 80 percent of the incidents, called “escalation of force,” Blackwater’s guards fired the first shots even though the company’s contract with the State Department calls for it to use defensive force only, it said. In the vast majority of cases, Blackwater mercenaries fired their weapons from moving vehicles without stopping to count the dead or assist the injured, the report found.

6) The Bush administration has circumvented use of the military in the Iraq war by using military contractors such as Blackwater, who are intentionally beyond the scope of both international civilian and military law. What legal means are in place to keep forces like these in line and protect the rights and property of civilians?
Blackwater USA has 2,300 active personnel deployed in nine different countries around the world. The cost for each Blackwater mercenary in Iraq, is $445,000 per year. With 20,000 additional forces at the ready (as of March 2007), they have set their focus increasingly to getting these troops strategically positioned within the United States. Blackwater now has been seeking deployment in Illinois, California for military and law enforcement training, in addition to their active deployment in New Orleans during the aftermath of Katrina. However, the U.S. government has sidestepped the legal obstructions inherent in the Posse Comitatus Act by using mercenary contractors. For those who are unfamiliar, the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 prohibits the use of the Armed Forces as a Posse comitatus to execute the laws except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress. Since then there have been measures to malignantly reinterpret and subvert the intent of the original Act through means of surreptitiously passed Bills and Amendments. The ultimate goal being the clear use of the military in all domestic policing operations, with the police and the military being virtually indistinguishable. With the Bush administration effectively undermining the Posse Comitatus Act (John Warner Defense Appropriation Act for Fiscal Year 2007 (H.R. 5122.ENR) and nullifying it under color of law, that will be eventually achieved. Until then, the covert use of Blackwater and other contracted mercenaries for contrived wars and synthetic emergencies, has altogether sidestepped the obstructive Posse Comitatus altogether by using what amounts to sanctioned gang members to patrol and police. Effectively Blackwater has been placed above the law with no accountability, oversight or punishment mechanism for war crimes and criminality in general.

7) Have there been any reprisals against Blackwater for egregious behaviour?
Yes, on March 31, 2004, four Blackwater soldiers were ambushed and killed in Fallujah. Their bodies burned and disfigured and then hung from a bridge. After which the U.S. launched a now notorious campaign of revenge attacks on the city of Fallujah that killed and maimed thousands. Many were civilians and it caused a massive resistance against the occupation that escalated the war to where it sits festering right now. Over 800 Blackwater soldiers have been killed in the course of the war yet their deaths have deliberately not been counted along with the other U.S. military deaths. Injuries as well as war crimes are not calculated nor officially documented. In effect they are exactly like black ops soldiers working for any intelligence agency, with zero oversight or accountability, and sanitized logistical information.

8) The Department of Homeland Security plans to keep its contract with Blackwater for two to five years, what does that mean?
No one knows as not even members of Congress can see these contracts. One member of Congress said that she’s not even allowed to see any of the contracts in general, but when she is, she has to go into a padded room. She’s not allowed to bring in any kind of writing equipment or paper, and she’s not allowed to say what she saw in that room after she’s viewed the contracts.

The World of Blackwater: Private Wars for Public Money

{col. writ. 9/20/07} (c) ’07 Mumia Abu-Jamal

The news running off the wire was unexpected in its rarity: the Iraqi ‘government’ announced that the U.S. private security company, Blackwater, would no longer be able to function in the country, following the killing of over 20 Iraqis by Blackwater personnel.

According to published reports, the U.S. State dept. will essentially ignore the Iraqi order, announcing that Blackwater would continue to work in the country. Blackwater provides security for many Americans working in Iraq, as well as some of its chosen puppets. (So much for ‘a sovereign nation.’)

The recent Blackwater shootout wasn’t the first, and unless I miss my guess, it won’t be the last.

For folks who’ve been following the American security company (and others like them), it should surprise no one that this company was involved in the shooting of civilians.

According to some researchers and reporters, Blackwater was getting down similarly — in the U.S.!

Think back to 2005, when the winds, rains, and gushing waters from Lake Pontchartrain swept through New Orleans, another force beset the already besieged town.

Blackwater was one of the number of such companies, armed with automatic weapons and contracts from the Dept. of Homeland Security. They were allowed to play cowboy when people were suffering from this natural disaster.

Several years ago, writer and “Democracy Now!” correspondent, Jeremy Scahill reported a conversation he had with a man from one of those private security companies during the height of the Hurricane Katrina disaster.

Scahill described his conversation with a man named Michael Montgomery, who worked with an Alabama-based company known as Bodyguard and Tactical Security (BATS). This guy told Scahill that he was in New Orleans on the second night of the catastrophe. As Scahill explained:

They got stopped in the ninth ward. He said they came under fire from a group of people on an overpass that he described as black gang bangers. He said, “At the time I was on the phone with my business partner.” I said, “What did you do then?” He said, “I dropped the phone and opened fire.” I said, “With what kind of weapons?” –“AR-15 assault rifles and Glock 9’s.” Fired up at the people he described as black gang bangers on this bridge. I said, “Then what happened? Did you kill them?” He said, “Well, let’s just put it this way, I heard a lot of moaning and screaming, and the shooting stopped. Enough said. “

Scahill was making his remarks on the Friday, Sept. 23 rd, 2005 edition of the nationally broadcast program, “Democracy Now!”

According to Scahill, these and other such groups were functioning in Louisiana, without licenses to operate in the state. What they had were contracts from the Homeland Security Dept., and a letter from the Governor of Louisiana! Thus, armed with automatic weapons, they patrolled the property of the rich, while they waged war against the poor.

Scahill explained that after the shooting, army officers and Louisiana State Troopers came on the scene – but neither agency filed a report. Scahill continued:

So this is the climate of impunity…..[H] ow do we know that he was fired upon? How do we know what that incident was? Why wouldn’t law enforcement file any kind of report on a shootout in which this guy is openly bragging to having shot up a bunch of people he described as black gang bangers on an overpass?

There are almost as many contractors working in Iraq as there are U.S. soldiers — but the Blackwater people make a whole lot more money, and are better equipped.

That’s because they aren’t fighting for ‘democracy’, they’re fighting for good old American money. They are fighting for those who can afford them.

What do they care about Iraqis? What did they care about ‘Americans’ in the midst of the whirlwind and the storm?

Unholy Knights of the Red Shield

Unholy Knights of the Red Shield

The Rothschilds, we speak of them often and many don’t really know who and what they are. Sometimes one wonders whether there is some fable behind the shadowy crest that is the “Red Shield,” for which the families name is derived. Thoughts of mystery or some other novelty told to children around bed time, meant to keep them in bed, covers drawn over their faces. The Rothschilds are that wicked Cabal that forms the pupil in the eye on top of the pyramid. They are the dearth of humanity, fattened by greed and full of lust, destroying what little hopes humanity has for independence. Unlike the state sponsored education you’ve come from, here we practice reality in all its glorious horrors. During this Journey you won’t be fed the traditional rotten meat of fictitious fables, formed from the pens of perverted historical prostitutes. But instead have your eyes opened as history is rewritten to reflect what really happened as opposed to the bed time story you’ve come to know. It is not the premise of the author or this article to play to the status quo. We will delve and dive head long into revisionist history or more aptly put, return the facts back to their proper places. Let the journey begin

Lucifer Rising, time to answer the who and what that makes up the Rothschilds. To begin, we must first dispel with the claim that they are Jewish, this is important for two reasons: the first to show that their critics are not evil “Anti-Semites” and second to remove any historical ties to Ancient Judaism. It’s not important to show any religion at all with regards to the family, but if one is needed Luciferianism would be its name. Many look to the Star of David and falsely ascribe Hitler as its creator, however the story goes much deeper. Mayer Amschel Bauer (Rothschilds Patriarch) aka Mayer Amschel Rothschilds revived it, not out of thin air, but from a careful study of the Occult practices he followed. In the Bible the Star can be found in the worship of the dancing Israelites as Moses came down from the mount with the first set of Ten Commandants, this account is detailed in the book of Amos. That not being enough, we see it explained and named in the book of Acts, where it‘s called Remphan, an Egyptian god, also worshiped by other religions as the god Saturn. Pagan history aside, we see that what calls itself Jewish is not, its formation was in Egypt and probably even earlier (Straightway Truth). To further the divorcement of Rothschilds and “Jew“ we now go to the genetic proof: The Rothschilds claim to Jewish blood is also a myth. The explanation of which will take us to 9th century Turkey were we meet King Bulon of the Khazars. The King had a unique problem, he was surrounded by Muslims on one side and Christians on the other. This presented a huge issue for the king, as he rightly suspected invasion due to the lack of affiliation with either. His answer to this issue was to give his empire an identity that would protect it from the outside worlds interests. The solution came in the form of Judaism as it was determined that the Jews were able to deal well with both Muslim and Christian. From this conversion the Ashkenazi Jew was born (IM NIN’ALU). So now we come back to our illustrious Rothschilds, which are the posterity of this marriage of necessity. The important thing here to remember is that Jewishness of this family is a cover and it always has been.

Money Pit, fractional banking is what makes the Rothschilds world go round. It is the staple of debt creation and has afforded them the power to take down entire countries. This may sound odd, but something as simple as having an initial reserve of precious metal i.e. Gold or Silver and then attributing value to worthless paper that is supposedly represented by precious metal. On the surface this appears to be viable, as it would negate the necessity of caring around all that heavy metal; the problem happens when you start loaning out money for which there is no backing and then continue to do so with complete abandonment. This system of finance is what the Rothschilds have perfected. The idea for such a system is not their invention, and probably has its roots in the Templars, who used it as a means to gain wealth and power themselves throughout Europe. How Rothschild wields his way into the courts of Europe is not important, it is however worth noting that he did perfect the Government Loan and use this as the base for the creation of his initial wealth (Hitchcock).

Spies like us, Napoleon, Wellington, and the take over of Britain are the next phase of the growth of the family. Now without going to much into the battle at Waterloo itself it is important to note that through its interests in Europe the Rothschilds had developed the first intelligence agency and through a system of fast ships and couriers had created a mechanism for moving information at incredible speed. What happens next is the biggest case of market manipulation in history. The Rothschilds had already funded both sides of the War, Nathan Rothschilds funded Wellington in England and Jacob Rothschilds saw to Napoleon‘s needs in France. So they were going to win either way with this War, what makes this unique is that using the courier system they had in place Nathan Rothschilds was able to get the results of the battle before Wellington‘s own couriers could bring news of his victory over Napoleon. The significance here is that through this information Nathan began to sell Bonds (called Consuls at the time) seeing as everyone knew Rothschilds to be shrewd and have good inside information they assumed Wellington had lost the battle and began selling there bonds at near Pence on the Pound. When there was sufficient amount of bonds on the table Nathan made his move and bought them all up for nearly nothing. When news arrived the next day of Wellington‘s victory it was too late Nathan’s financial coup had already been complete, he now controlled the wealth of England for all intents and purposes (Hitchcock).

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Fascism & Communism two birds of a feather that the Rothschilds tied together. The Rothschilds created Fascism from the writings of Nietzsche. And at the same time Marx (real name Moses Levy Mordecai) was drafting the writings of Communism both funded by the Rothschilds, for the sole purpose of creating a dialectic (Hitchcock). This was the same plan to destroy religion and politics put forward by Adam Weishaupt in 1776 (also a Rothschild plant), but thwarted by the German Government in 1785 when the Illuminati was disbanded. It is at this time that Gutle Rothschild states before her death that, “If my sons did not want wars, there would be none” (of note Gutle is the patriarchal mother of the Rothschilds). It is with this knowledge that we must accept the fate of this world. No one can make statements like these without some form of knowledge to back it up. Mayer Rothschilds had some years back been kicked out of Russia by the Tzar and vowed revenge and now after his death his sons where bringing his threat to life. Just like with Wellington and Napoleon, both Communism and Fascism were funded to bring about the necessary boiling point needed for war (Hitchcock). And wars they created just like the currencies that now paid for them they were numbers created on a ledger. There was no real reason for them, the boundaries and catalysts that forged these conflicts where figments of the imaginations of the House of Rothschild. Every war since Napoleon can be traced back to an origin with a Rothschild name on it. Its not feasible without the need for many, many more pages to add the supporting material to substantiate and catalog these occurrences, but having known the scope of this undertaking before it was begun it was decided to supply the necessary reference material needed to complete the task of further investigation on ones own.

Planes, Trains, & Automobiles, everybody loves a monopoly right? Well this is a staple of the Rothschilds business ethic. Why divide and conquer in a true free market, when you can coheres and subvert the whole thing for yourself and take all the profits. This could go on and on like the previous section so for the sake of space and time we will look at Standard Oil, owned by the American arm of Rothschildss, our good friends the Rockefellers. These families are all intermarried and use this to cover their wealth and their name as to hedge suspicions of their monopolistic control. John D. Rockefeller, through his banking connections to the Rothschildss in Europe buys up all the competition and sets up the first monopoly in the United States (Hitchcock). What’s of note here is that the money doesn’t actually exist, the real desire of these families and their agents is not to empty your accounts, they already own those, but to take real property with the artificial money they’ve created. So in the end what was merely entries on a sheet of paper has through hypothecated slide of hand been turned into real assets. Estates, land, and utilities are all in the control of one of the Rothschildss front companies or an agent acting on their behalf.

Sex, Lies, & Video Tape, no financial takeover is complete without a political one. Soon after they there Bank set up they begin to seek out like minded people to further their cause on their behalf. Now most people have some sense of decency and as such sometimes a little persuasion is required to get the right results. When a particular Bill or other important legislation needed to be passed it was the job of agents to provide the necessary incentives for the votes they needed. If a politician could not be bought outright a little prostitution or blackmail goes a long ways to getting quick results. One such case of this is with Woodrow Wilson who has an extra marital affair and is coerced by Samuel Untermyer for the sum of 40,000 Dollars which was to be paid to the woman he slept with. Wilson didn’t have the money and Mr. Untermyer offered to pay the sum from his own pocket, which most certainly sealed the deal for any and all actions needed of the President for which a seat on the Supreme Court was sought (Hitchcock). Once again the recipe here was all part of the original Weishaupt formula back in 1776.

Weishaupt‘s full symphony of destruction reads like this:

1) Use monetary and sex bribery to obtain control of men already in high places, in the various levels of all governments and other fields of endeavor. Once influential persons had fallen for the lies, deceits, and temptations of the Illuminati they were to be held in bondage by application of political and other forms of blackmail, threats of financial ruin, public exposure, and fiscal harm, even death to themselves and loved members of their families.

2) The faculties of colleges and universities were to cultivate students possessing exceptional mental ability belonging to well-bred families with international leanings, and recommend them for special training in internationalism, or rather the notion that only a one-world government can put an end to recurring wars and strife. Such training was to be provided by granting scholarships to those selected by the Illuminati.

3) All influential people trapped into coming under the control of the Illuminati, plus the students who had been specially educated and trained, were to be used as agents and placed behind the scenes of all governments as experts and specialists. This was so they would advise the top executives to adopt policies which would in the long-run serve the secret plans of the Illuminati one-world conspiracy and bring about the destruction of the governments and religions they were elected or appointed to serve.

4) To obtain absolute-control of the press, at that time the only mass-communications media which distributed information to the public, so that all news and information could be slanted in order to make the masses believe that a one-world government is the only solution to our many and varied problems.

These official ingredients for subversion read off like something Orewll would have written if he had spent the time to explain how Big Brother came into being (Hitchcock).

Wag the Dog, no true takeover can be complete without the media right? Ever since Marlon Brando went on Larry King and said the Jews run Hollywood, people have wondered. Well media as well as entertainment is all part of the package and as such is in need of mention. Enter the Council on Foreign Relations created by the Rothschilds in France at Hotel Majestic and put together by Jacob Schiff in 1921 with a 1000 members made up of bankers and heads of industry and executed Colonel Edward Mandell House (Hitchcock). The CRF was than tasked with financially supporting those whose position matched their own for any office in the U.S. Government. It was decided that in order to further there efforts and contain information from the public eye newspapers and other forms of media should be acquired. This task was divided up between other powerful and influential Ashkenazi Jews of the time like: Kuhn Loeb, Goldman Sachs, the Warburgs, and the Lehmanns (Hitchock).

Happily Never After, The point of this essay was to introduce the reader to Zionism indirectly and attribute that term to its proper parent, the Rothschildss. One can not overlook the Cabalism in this families history, its the linchpin to the Occult nature of the family and probably supports the premise of its Zionistic goals for the start. These are the authors suppositions and not that of any of the sources. But since so much of modern Judaism is based on Cabala, the Talmud having already long since denounced the traditional Jewish Torah in favor of its own law. It wouldn’t be to ambitious to claim the precepts of the aforementioned belief system to be the hallmark of its thoughts and actions. The Rothschilds through birthright adopted an Occult religion, founded on the mysteries of Babylon and Egypt and through its teachings fomented a system from which with to take over the world. It has hijacked a religion for the sake of concealing another, all along claiming to be a disenfranchised party deserving protection and sympathy. It‘s a grand hoax from a Grand Lodge and one that has been played out for over a hundred years. In closing lets look at a direct quote from the Jewish Encyclopedia from 1925 it states of the existence of Ashkenazi Jews (who represent approximately 90% of so-called world Jewry), with the startling admission that the so called enemy of the Jews, Esau (also known as Edom, see Genesis 36:1), now actually represents the Jewish race, when on page 42 of Volume V it is stated, “Edom is in modern Jewry.” So what they’re basically saying is that these Ashkenazi Jews, who represent 90% of the so-called Jewish population, are actually gentiles or goyim themselves.
