New Years Eve special with E. Michael Jones: Are we winning the “culture wars” ?

E. Michael Jones and yours truly at the Hollywoodism conference in Tehran, Feb. 2013

E. Michael Jones, editor of Culture Wars magazine and author of many books, may be America’s leading Catholic intellectual. In this interview, he suggests that 2013 was the year in which spiritual people from many religious traditions joined forces against the New World Order materialists – picking up where the Polish Catholics and Iranian revolutionaries of 1979 left off.  The biggest victory of 2013, he asserts, was heading off war in Syria. An unlikely alliance of the Pope, the British Parliament, Russian President Putin, the Iranian government, and the American people stood up against the Zionist/NWO forces and stopped the US war on Syria in its tracks.

Jones is looking forward to more such victories, and more substantial interfaith cooperation in building a peaceful and spiritual world, in 2014!

First half-hour: Libertarian activist Rolf Lindgren and I argue about whether or not black-box voting machines are stealing elections (including Bob Bowman‘s congressional seat in 2006). Later in the show, we agree that NSA spying blatantly violates the Fourth Amendment, and discuss the legal wrangling around this issue that is heading for the Supreme Court.

Second half hour: Clint Curtis, an attorney and computer programmer, ran for Congress in Florida as a whistleblower in 2006 and 2008 against “vote fraud Congressman” Tom Feeney. During his 2006 campaign he got to know another whistleblower candidate: Dr. Bob Bowman. In 2010, he won the Democratic nomination and ran against Tom McClintock in California.

Is today’s USA is becoming a monolithic, monologic, totalitarian society intent on spreading its social model to every corner of the world…sort of like the bad old USSR, only worse?

Today’s show features ex-Soviet dissident Vladislav Krasnov a.k.a. George Krasnow
of the Russia & America Goodwill Association (RAGA).  Vladislav defected to Sweden, then the USA, during the Cold War – not because he was “defective” but because the USSR was. Today, he can relate to American defectors like Edward Snowden – and to dissidents like yours truly. As Western “democracies” like New Zealand incarcerate 9/11 skeptics in mental institutions, while Haliburton feverishly builds concentration camps, it almost seems like the USA and Russia have switched roles, with the USA becoming a totalitarian hellhole bent on exporting neocon-style revolution while Russia re-emerges as a beacon of freedom and moderation.

During this show we discuss Russia’s return to religion, the great Russian writers Dostoevsky and Solzhenitsyn, and the philosopher M.M. Bakhtin, the champion of dialogism and polyphony, as well as more overtly political topics.

Vladislav Krasnov’s books include:

Solzhenitsyn and Dostoevsky: A Study in the Polyphonic Novel (University of Georgia Press, Athens, GA, 1979)
Soviet Defectors: The KGB wanted List (Hoover Institution Press, 1985)

Edward Snowden has declared “mission accomplished”, which is clearly well deserved.  Snowden had created world-wide awareness of the NSA’s massive surveillance program, which was initially implemented in February 2001, but where other critics did not have the documentation to back up their allegations.  A federal judge has now issued a preliminary injunction against the program, which “almost certainly” violates the 4th Amendment. Not to be outdone for an excess of zeal or sheer incompetence, the CIA has come in for a lambasting for its failure to maintain an appropriate level of human intelligence (HUMINT), where technology and drones have lately replaced spies in the field who can gain understanding of current events.

The UK is now filtering the internet in a stunning display of paternalism, where unless David Cameron approves of it, you can’t see it.  Ruling out “hate speech” can be abused to curtain criticism of the actions of Israel, which is not anti-Semitic but is often treated as it it were.  Kevin and Jim diverge, where Jim favors a open approach but Kevin is more qualified. A group of northern California sheriffs are banding together to oppose the encroachment of the federal government by placing their obligation to uphold the Constitution over US efforts to dominate their counties, which is a sign that perhaps something can be done to slow down the conversion of America into a fascist state.

The privatization of prisons has converted the homeless and poor into a potential bonanza for companies, where when incarcerated, they can be worth $40-50,000 apiece and be fed food not fit for a dog.  It invites a vision of the future in which half the population is in prison and the other half is guarding them. Paul Craig Roberts believes that the US is already a totalitarian state, which receives confirmation from multiple sources. The Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, has compared the NSA spy program to the East German Stasi, widely regarded as the most efficient police state apparatus the world has known until now.

The Fukushima catastrophe appears to be extending its reach across the Pacific to beaches in northern California, where radioactivity readings are some 13 times greater than background.  Combined with an outbreak of thyroid cancers among the young in Japan, it is clear that
the effects of the nuclear disaster there are going to endure beyond the foreseeable future and possibly forever.  Also on the international scene, the UN has now passed a resolution condemning Iran for human rights violations, when Iran is overwhelmingly more respectful of human rights than Israel, which continued to abuse and kill the Palestinian people in the greatest human rights issue of the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

In a study that will be no surprise to most, the privatization of functions previously conducted by the government costs at least twice as much.  Indeed, earlier research has shown there is a 10% increase in cost for administering programs like Social Security, for the obvious reason that private companies are operating for profit.  And the privatization of the military has led to the formation of mercenary armies at vastly inflated cost to the American taxpayers to avoid having to reintroduce a draft. A Russia billionaire to made his fortune looting the former Soviet Union has declared his intention to assist political prisoners, but this appears to be for his own self-aggrandizement–not from a sincere desire to help. And the designer of the most reliable automatic weapon in the world, the AK-47, which will perform in spite of sand, dirt and water, has died.

Several stories suggest that the 9/11 Truth movement is not going away any time soon, where members of Congress are calling upon Obama to declassify 9/11 documents related to Saudi Arabia, which would shed new light on those atrocities. An A&E911 campaign is drawing favorable coverage, even where it is not expected.  And a march on Washington, D.C., rallied for 9/11 Truth.  The latest polls show that only 23% believe the “official account” of what happened to WTC-7.  Chomsky continues to confirm his role as a left-wing gatekeeper by demeaning 9/11 Truth.  Judge Hellerstein has finally cut off Larry Silverstein from making more money off of 9/11, which is as welcome as it is unexpected.

The Boston bombing Tsarnaev brothers have been portrayed as 9/11 Truthers, but no one has taken it seriously.  And a new study shows that conspiracy theorists are less hostile and more open-minded than those who unreflectingly accept what the government tells them. The Sandy Hook hoax has been blown apart by Sofia Smallstorm in her “Unraveling Sandy Hook”.  Jim has published “Sandy Hook + American gullibility = coming Gulag USA” on Veterans Today, which reinforces the scam.  And the latest research on the death of JFK now includes “The JFK War: The Challenging Case of Robert Groden”, “JFK at 50: The Who, the How and the Why” and the Santa Barbara 50th conference videos, which are available at jfk50santabarbara.com.

 

Christmas letter from a Muslim

ubaiChristmas
As-salaamu alaikum and a very Merry Christmas!

American Christians often send each other Christmas letters. Oddly, these letters rarely reference Jesus – or any of the other messengers of God, peace and blessings on all of them.

Christmas letters usually just provide a superficial summary of what the letter-writer and family have been doing during the previous year. Most of them are devoid of spirituality.

You’d think a Christmas letter would invoke angels,  blessings, self-sacrifice, holiness, purity, miracles, redemptive love, dreams and visions, divine healing, hopes of paradise and aversions to hellfire, and so on. You’d expect a Christmas letter to be written in the spirit of Jesus, that most radical of spiritual healers and miracle-workers, who taught a vastly expanded form of consciousness based on universal love – a form of consciousness capable of turning ordinary life into the Kingdom of Heaven.

Though you don’t see much of this in Christmas letters, a trace of it survives in small acts of kindness performed at this time of year. Another trace can be seen in the glorious play of colored Christmas lights glinting on the snowy black-and-white winter landscape. Aldous Huxley explained in The Doors of Perception that the luminous colors of gemstones and stained glass are capable of transporting us into the world as it actually is, before our minds’ “reducing valves” impoverish it – an expanded state of consciousness not unlike the Kingdom of Heaven that Jesus revealed:

“Thanks to glass, a whole building – the Sainte Chapelle, for example, the cathedrals of Chartres and Sens – could be turned into something magical and transporting.  Thanks to glass, Paolo Uccello could design a circular jewel thirteen feet in diameter – his great window of the Resurrection, perhaps the most extraordinary single work of vision-inducing art ever produced.”

Huxley suggests that the stained glass of cathedrals was so extraordinary in its multi-hued luminosity, compared to what medieval people experienced everywhere else, that it catapulted them into an altered state of consciousness in which they were capable of grasping Christianity’s “deep message.”  It was the contrast between the dull browns and greens of peasant life, and the resplendent rays shooting from colored glass, that did the trick.

Today, when the starkly black-and-white winter world is shattered by the dazzling colors of Christmas lights, you can get a taste of that kind of contrast.

Here in the snowy Wisconsin woods, a guy down the road has turned his yard into an amazing display of Christmas lights, complete with luminous Santas, shimmering reindeer, glowing Christmas trees, gleaming elves, and an elaborate and beautiful nativity scene. I wonder if he knows his Muslim neighbors appreciate his artistry…and love Jesus at least as much as most nominal Christians do.
If he watches Fox News, he probably thinks Muslims hate Jesus.

Muslims love Jesus and wish Christians would put Christ back in Christmas - but the Zionist media won't tell you that!
Muslims love Jesus and wish Christians would put Christ back in Christmas –
but the Zionist media won’t tell you that!

Even non-fans of Fox don’t seem to know, or care, that Muslims love Jesus and the story of his miraculous conception and birth. My wife tells me her liberal and progressive friends don’t seem to want to hear about Surat Maryam – regarded by Muslims and non-Muslims alike as one of the Qur’an’s most beautiful passages. Nobody celebrating the birth of Jesus could possibly find a more succinct and moving description of the Christmas story.

That’s right: The best short summary of the Christmas story is in the Qur’an. Christians might consider playing Surat Miryam – the most beautiful Christmas music imaginable – alongside “Silent Night” and the other classics.

Listen to Surat Miryam recited by Saad al-Ghamdi

But be careful: The truth about Muslims’ love of Jesus is dangerous. Congressman Mark Siljander, a saintly soul, was railroaded into federal prison for the crime of bringing Muslims and Christians together based on their shared love of Jesus (and the many other commonalities of the two faiths). Powerful forces don’t want Christians and Muslims to get along. The same powerful forces spread anti-Jesus sentiment through the media, and are bent on turning Christmas into a secular, materialist, consumerist hellhole of a holiday.

Jonas Alexis quotes Philip Roth on the Jewish subversion of Christmas:

“The radio was playing ‘Easter Parade’ and I thought, But this is Jewish genius on a par with the Ten Commandments. God gave Moses the Ten Commandments and then He gave to Irving Berlin ‘Easter Parade’ and ‘White Christmas.’

“The two holidays that celebrate the divinity of Christ – the divinity that’s the very heart of the Jewish rejection of Christianity –  and what does Irving Berlin brilliantly do? He de-Christs them both! Easter he turns into a fashion show and Christmas into a holiday about snow.
“Gone is the gore and the murder of Christ – down with the crucifix and up with the bonnet! He turns their religion into schlock. But nicely! Nicely! So nicely the goyim don’t even know what hit ‘em. They love it. Everybody loves it. The Jews especially. Jews loathe Jesus.
“If supplanting Jesus Christ with snow can enable my people to cozy up to Christmas, then let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!”

The simple truth is that Muslims love Jesus; while Jews (traditionally at least) hate him. Simply stating that universally-acknowledged truth can get you labeled an “anti-Semite.” That doesn’t make it any less true.

But hey, it’s Christmas, so let’s not talk about anything serious. We don’t want any family fights, do we? Especially not in the Family of Abraham.

So I will end by invoking the blessings of a certain secularist-materialist fat-guy who seems to have elbowed Jesus out from under the Christmas tree:

May Shaykh Santa, that jolly old Sufi, bring you the blessings of wisdom instead of all that plastic garbage from Wal-Mart you usually get.

Wayne Madsen: Suppressed report implicates Israel & Saudis in 9/11

Former NSA officer Wayne Madsen says the suppressed 28 pages of the 2002 Joint Congressional Report on 9/11 probably implicate Israel as well as Saudi Arabia in planning and executing the attacks. (I suggested the same thing in my new article “Why would AIPAC protect Saudis from 9/11 probe?”)

Wayne reminds us of many of the little-known and/or suppressed 9/11 stories he has broken, all pointing toward 9/11 as an inside job involving Bush Administration neocons. He also discusses the wave of assassinations that has helped cover up 9/11 and related crimes, what’s really going on in the Middle East, and much more!

Barry Kissin on re-opening the Saudi 9/11 connection!

 Guest: Barry Kissin, expert on the anthrax aspect of the 9/11-anthrax false flag attack.

Barry discusses the sudden convergence of events with the potential to blow 9/11 wide open:

*The failure of the August al-Ghouta false-flag, pushed into the mainstream by Seymour Hersh

*The push in Congress to declassify “shocking” 9/11 documents that implicate Bush and the Saudis

*The Second Circuit Court’s ruling reinstating 9/11 families’ lawsuits against Saudi Arabia

*The rapid re-alignment in the Middle East in which the US is distancing itself from Saudi Arabia and Israel and making peace with Iran

 Barry is excited and optimistic; he thinks the push to expose the Bush-Saudi 9/11 connection could re-open the case and expose the truth. Is he right? Tune in and decide for yourself!

Press TV: 9/11 attacks carried out by US, Israel and Saudi Arabia

Watch the Press TV interview

The September 11, 2001 attacks in the US were a “false flag” operation carried out jointly by the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia with “Zionists playing the lead role,” an analyst tells Press TV. 

On Thursday, a US federal court ruled that relatives of people who died in the 9/11 attacks can sue Saudi Arabia, reversing a lower court ruling in 2002 that had found the kingdom immune from lawsuits.

The complaint states that much of the funding for the al-Qaeda terrorists involved in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon came from Saudi Arabia.

Dr. Kevin Barrett, a member of the Scientific Panel for the Investigation of 9/11, rejects the official narrative, saying Saudi Arabia is a “puppet of the US and other Western governments.”

“There were no hijackers, there were no hijackings, this has been proved in many, many ways,” Dr. Barrett said on Saturday. “Ten of the 19 guys they blamed were still alive after 9/11,” he added.

Rather, he said, “Saudi intelligence was used by the real perpetrators of Sept. 11 to create a legend, to set up the patsies who would be blamed for this event.”

Dr. Barrett said a “suppressed” report by the Congressional Joint Inquiry of 2002 would shed light on the true perpetrators of the attacks, should it become public. The controversial document, however, has remained classified to this day.

Former Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.) who chaired the inquiry at the time has stated that the document includes information “implicating a foreign government,” Dr. Barrett said. “But there has been such a cover-up,” he added.

The September 11 attacks, also referred to as 9/11 were a series of four coordinated attacks upon the US cities of New York and the Washington, DC which killed nearly 3,000 people.
