Kennedyhttp://theduran.com/cia-urges-potus-trump-to-delay-release-of-3000-never-before-seen-documents-on-assassination-of-john-f-kennedy/ – “Roger Stone said in a post on his website: ‘They must reflect badly on the CIA even though virtually everyone involved is long dead.’ ”

Israel finds a welcome audience with Christian journalists – by Josef Federman – https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-finds-a-welcome-audience-with-christian-journalists/ – “The government this week is hosting a first-of-its-kind summit for Christian journalists, featuring softball questions, mutual admiration and a welcome respite for embattled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. His outreach to evangelical leaders reflects striking tactical parallels to his close ally and fellow media basher, US President Donald Trump.”

from the Danger-Danger-Will-Robinson Desk: U.S. Says Syrian Government Will Never Have Foothold In Raqqa, Acccuses Damascus & Allies Of Hindering Efforts To Liberate Cityhttps://southfront.org/us-says-syrian-government-will-never-have-foothold-in-raqqa-acccuses-damascus-allies-of-hindering-efforts-to-liberate-city/ – On October 18, the US Special Envoy for the US-led coalition Brett McGurk said during a meeting with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Raqqa Civil Council that the “Syrian regime will never have a foothold in Raqqa”, according to a report of the SDF official website… …after the end of Raqqa battle, the SDF will be able to redeploy a big force from Raqqa city to the front lines in Deir Ezzor countryside… With the help of the US-led coalition, the SDF will likely advance towards the strategic Omar oil fields.

“The Lobby” British Style – An undercover reporter secretly records how the Israeli Embassy directs local groups – by Philip Giraldi – https://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/the-lobby-british-style/ – “And Israeli interference in U.S. government and elections is also a given. Endorsement of Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election by the Netanyahu government was more-or-less carried out in the open. And ask Congressmen like Paul Findley, Pete McCloskey, William Fulbright, Charles Percy and, most recently, Cynthia McKinney, what happens to your career when you appear to be critical of Israel. And the point is that while Israel calls the shots in terms of what it wants, it is a cabal of diaspora American Jews who actually pull the trigger. With that in mind, it will be very interesting to watch the al-Jazeera documentary on The Lobby in America.”

According to The Intercept, Washington provides funds for a ‘vast constellation of global training exercises, operations, facilities, and schools — a shadowy network of US programs that every year provides instruction and assistance to approximately 200,000 foreign soldiers, police, and other personnel.’ Training takes place ‘at no fewer than 471 locations in 120 countries — on every continent but Antarctica — involving, on the US side, 150 defense agencies, civilian agencies, armed forces colleges, defense training centers, military units, private companies, and NGOs, as well as the National Guard forces of five states.’ ”

The Long Island Police came to Norman’s house last night, beat him up mercilessly and then shoved him inside a jail cell.

YouTube Bans SYRIANGIRL’s Video About Her Facebook Ban – for ‘Hate Speech’https://southfront.org/youtube-bans-syriangirls-video-facebook-ban-hate-speech/ – “Dear Mark Zuckerberg and whichever faceless Orks run Youtube, – some friendly advice – this thing is going to go nuclear if you two don’t wise up and back down. SYRIANGIRL is too well-known, liked, and respected by too many important people for this not to blow up into a major stink. She speaks at top level conferences, has been on all manner of TV – in her native Australia, to RT, to Alex Jones, and many others. A lot of big people will pile on. This will blow up in your faces unless you backpedal quickly.”

This led to a race to capture territory from retreating Islamic State fighters in a strategic and oil-rich border region, and is currently manifesting itself in the scramble to control Deir Ezzor.”

As you know, I’m an advocate of honest, local police, and it’s clear that the beat cops did a fantastic job helping people seek cover on the ground below. But I do have an issue with the 72-minute response time during a full-auto machine gun spree in a city where there are dozens of cops within a one-mile radius.”

Plastomics is growing the next generation of crops with agtech – by Christine McGuigan – http://siliconprairienews.com/2017/10/plastomics-growing-next-generation-crops-agtech/ – “Chloroplast traits are inherited only through seed, which simplifies breeding and eliminates trait escape via pollen, a key stewardship issue for certain crops. Plastomics’ chloroplast engineering platform is a fast, efficient and more predictable way to introduce multiple traits into important crops that can also reduce time to market… ‘One of the reasons that we have chosen to set up a company around this platform technology is that the technology has never been developed as an industrialized platform for commercial use in crops,’ said Berberich. ‘No one has been successful in setting this platform up for crops like corn, sorghum and wheat. No one has been able to engineer the chloroplasts in these crops except for [our] founder.’ ” – Comment: Danger, Danger Will Robinson…

Sheldon Adelson group changes how it’s selling Israel on campus – The Maccabee Task Force is quietly making inroads among college progressives who have been a focus for anti-Israel activity – by Ron Kampeas – https://www.timesofisrael.com/sheldon-adelson-group-changes-how-its-selling-israel-on-campus/ – ” ‘We are very grateful for the really impactful activities to change the conversation about Israel,’ said Sarita Bronstein, the Hillel director at San Jose State University. In 2015, the campus became among the first to pass a student resolution favoring BDS… San Jose was one of 20 campuses where the Maccabee Task Force sent a team of strategists and funders last year. That’s doubled to 40 this year, an official of the group said… Beneficiaries say that what sets the group apart is that it provides cash and tactical advice — but leaves the vision up to the students.”

Bloomberg panics: “Putin has succeeded in making Russia a factor in the Middle East” – Diplomat says: Russia a ‘nimble boxer’ vs musclebound U.S. – by Alex Christoforou – http://theduran.com/bloomberg-panics-putin-has-succeeded-in-making-russia-a-factor-in-the-middle-east/ – ” ‘Putin has succeeded in making Russia a factor in the Middle East. That’s why you see a constant stream of Middle Eastern visitors going to Moscow.’.. Success brings its own problems. As conflicting demands pile up, it’s not easy to send all those visitors home satisfied. ‘The more you try to adopt a position of dealing with all sides, the more you find that it’s hard to play that game,’’ Ross said.” – Comment: Ross doesn’t seem to note that Putin recently totally refused requests from Netanyahu for concessions…

What Did Washington Achieve in its Six Year War on Syria? – Well for one thing: “the military industrial complex could not have dreamed of a better scheme to rob the American people while enriching themselves!” – by Ron Paulhttp://russia-insider.com/en/politics/what-did-washington-achieve-its-six-year-war-syria/ri21128 – “The US is not about to leave on its own. With ISIS all but defeated in Syria, many in Washington are calling for the US military to continue its illegal occupation of parts of the country to protect against Iranian influence!.. Of course before the US military actions in Iraq and Syria there was far less Iranian influence in the region! So US foreign interventionism is producing new problems that can only be solved by more US interventionism?”

How I Got Fired (for Criticizing US Jewish Elites) – by Philip Giraldi – http://russia-insider.com/en/politics/how-i-got-fired-criticizing-us-jewish-elites/ri21132 – “This group of Israel advocates is as responsible as any other body in the United States for the deaths of thousands of Americans and literally millions of mostly Muslim foreigners in unnecessary wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria. It has also turned the U.S. into an active accomplice in the brutal suppression of the Palestinians… That they have never expressed any remorse or regret and the fact that the deaths and suffering don’t seem to matter to them are clear indictments of the sheer inhumanity of the positions they embrace… The friends of Israel rule by coercion, intimidation and through fear. If we suffer through a catastrophic war with Iran fought to placate Benjamin Netanyahu many people might begin to ask “Why?”.. But identifying the real cause would involve criticism of what some American Jews have been doing, which is not only fraught with consequences, but is something that also will possibly become illegal thanks to Congressional attempts to criminalize such activity. We Americans will stand by mutely as we begin to wonder what has happened to our country.”

Post-Equifax Breach, It’s Time for a Digital Universal ID – by Ben Algaze – https://www.extremetech.com/internet/256934-post-equifax-hack-time-digital-universal-id – “Given that the Aadhaar system stores physical identification data, as well as a host of demographic information, a major concern is that if it’s compromised, it’s really a single point of failure with disastrous consequences for the myriad services that depend on it. While Aadhaar employs state-of-the-art encryption, usually the compromise to such a system comes from a weaker link–an improperly designed or unaudited mobile or web app, or a phishing scam that steals a credential from someone with wide access to the system.”

Under-Siege Maduro Asks Russia, China to Help Him Strike Back Against the Dollar – He’ll sell his oil for remnibi and rubles but wants entire OPEC to follow – http://russia-insider.com/en/politics/under-siege-maduro-asks-russia-china-help-him-strike-back-against-dollar/ri21164 – “Maduro also insisted that Venezuela is dealing with its debt to Russia, currently in the billions, and that Rosneft’s deal with Venezuelan state oil producer PDVSA is “subject to negotiation.” “We fulfill all the obligations to Russia. If we get more favorable terms for restructuring the debt, this will be the result of a deal between the two governments,” said Maduro. It was unclear how Putin felt toward said proposal.”

Has The Israel Lobby Destroyed Americans’ First Amendment Rights? – by Paul Craig Roberts – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47956.htm – “Americans should think about the fact that Israel is the only country on earth that it is impermissible to criticize. Anyone who criticizes Israeli policy, especially toward the Palestinians, or remarks on Israel’s influence, is branded an “anti-semite.” Even mild critics who are trying to steer Israel away from making mistakes, such as former President Jimmy Carter, are branded “anti-semites.”.. The Israel Lobby’s purpose in labeling a critic an “anti-semite” is to discredit the criticism as an expression of dislike or hatred of Jews. In other words, the criticism is presented as merely an expression of the person’s aversion to Jewishness. A persistent critic is likely to be charged with trying to incite a new holocaust.”

Syria – Russia Issues Third Warning Against U.S. Cooperation With Terroristshttp://www.moonofalabama.org/2017/10/syria-russia-issues-third-warning-against-us-cooperation-with-terrorists.html#more – “There have now been three significant incidents against the Russian-Syrian alliance in which, according to Russia, U.S. malignancy played a role. Each time Russian officials warned of consequences. To some extend the U.S. hostility is incited by Israeli nagging. But the record shows that CentCom, the U.S. military command in the Middle East, is overtly aggressive and not always following Washington’s line. It is high time for the White House to get the situation under control.”

The Mystery of the Russia-gate Puppies – by Robert Parry – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47958.htm – “Yes, I know that some Democrats are still hoping against hope that they can ride Russia-gate all the way to Trump’s impeachment and get him ridden out of Washington D.C. on a rail, but the political risk to Democrats is that they will harden the animosity that many in the white working class already feel toward the party… That could do more to strengthen Trump’s appeal to these voters than to weaken him, while hollowing out Democratic support among millions of peace voters who may simply declare a plague on both parties.”

Britain Moves To Criminalize Reading Extremist Material On The Internet – by Jonathan Turley – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47964.htm – “What is particularly striking is that this new law seeks to create a new normal in a society already desensitized to government controls and speech crimes. There is no pretense left in this campaign — just a smiling face rallying people to the cause of thought control.”

WARNING: There Is Going to be an Attempted Communist Revolution on Nov. 4 – by Daisy Luther – http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/warning-there-is-going-to-be-an-attempted-communist-revolution-on-nov-4_10052017 – “Oh, wait – I forgot to tell you – they have a draft of a constitution with which they want to replace the governing document of America. It’s called, ‘The Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America.’.. The New Socialist Republic in North America is, like all states, a form of dictatorshipthe dictatorship of the proletariat–which means that, in its essential character and its basic principles, structures, institutions and political processes, it must give expression to and serve the fundamental interests of the proletariat, a class whose exploitation is the engine of the accumulation of capitalist wealth and the functioning of capitalist society and whose emancipation from its exploited condition can only be brought about through the communist revolution, with its goal of abolishing all relations of exploitation and oppression and achieving the emancipation of humanity as a whole….one of the principal aims is to eliminate the ownership of private capital and the resultant relations of exploitation in the form of wage labor; and while, for a fairly long period of time, it will be necessary for people employed in enterprises and other units of the socialist economy to receive remuneration–and to meet their various personal needs, to a significant degree–through the medium of money, it will be possible, and will be the orientation, to eliminate, in a much shorter period of time, conditions and situations in which individuals are forced to work for other individuals who own private capital. Accordingly, the private ownership of means of production and other capital, and the hiring of wage labor by owners of private capital, shall be prohibited. (source) (emphasis added by author of article) – Note: Also, BTW, Media independent of the (communist) government will require a license to operate.

The US proxy war against Russia in Syria is not being fought so much as it is being lost – How will the US respond to its inevitable loss in Syria? – by Adam Garrie – http://theduran.com/the-us-proxy-war-against-russia-in-syria-is-not-being-fought-so-much-as-it-is-being-lost/ – “Nor is it a coincidence that it is becoming increasingly apparent that mutual enemies of both Syria and Russia were responsible for leaking information to ISIS which resulted in the targeted killing of the martyred Russian officer Valery Asapov… While Russia has never deliberately targeted US proxies apart from jihadist groups, now it seems that all US proxies, including jihadist groups are systematically targeting Syrian and Russian troops. This is all the more apparent when one understands that Raqqa has been partly abandoned by the US and SDF in order to move troops and supplies to Deir ez-Zor.”

3 Ways the UN Can Keep Cities at the Center of Sustainability Goals – by Peter Calthorpe – https://nextcity.org/daily/entry/united-nations-urban-cities-sustainability-goals – “In the end, UN-Habitat must engage a broad range of groups and garner global attention and support to be successful. While cities are the nexus of many of our most dramatic challenges, they also represent the opportunity to resolve them with cross cutting policies, programs and urban design. In cities, individual actions can have multiple positive outcomes. The UN is the natural institution to lead the effort to create urban environments that are economically robust, environmentally sustainable, and socially just. A reinvigorated UN-Habitat is the means.”

‘All Sections of Syrian Society Should be Treated Equally Under the Syrian Flag’ – by Andrew Korybko and 21Wire – http://21stcenturywire.com/2017/09/27/sections-syrian-society-treated-equally-syrian-flag/ – “Syria must remain for all Syrians, not just for one minority. Voices who oppose this should be discouraged. The Syrian Constitution should continue to resist all ethnocentric religious-based parties. If there is a change to the Syrian constitution, it should be the removal of the word Arab from Syrian Arab Republic. In spite of the fact that the vast majority Syrians speak the Arabic language, the majority of Syrians are historically not ethnically Arab. All sections of Syrian society should be treated equally under the Syrian flag.”

Non-Lethal? Police Tasers Have Killed Over 1,000—Many With Mental Health Problems – by Rachel Blevins – https://www.activistpost.com/2017/09/non-lethal-police-tasers-killed-1000-many-mentally-ill.html – “In one example, police in Ontario, California, were called to address a disturbance at a home involving an unarmed man with mental health issues. Three officers arrived, and instead of taking the 57-year-old man to the hospital, as his wife requested, a veteran officer hit the man with a taser twice—once directly to the chest—and the man died as a result. Reuters noted that this is not an isolated incident… Ken Wallentine, former chief of law enforcement for the Utah Attorney General, told Reuters that ‘cops have been turned into mental health workers on the street,’ and he fears that ‘some police training and some police practices have allowed the crowding out of persuasion and the Taser has become the default tool.’ ”

Very Dangerous Escalation In Syria – by The Saker – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47907.htm – “The bottom line is that if the Americans think that the Russians and their allies don’t have options they are deeply mistaken. They also should seriously consider the consequence of having US SOF operating in forward positions. The Syrians are closing the distance fast and this might not be the best time to hunt Russian military personnel.”

A Crash Course on the True Causes of “Anti-Semitism” – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/a-crash-course-on-the-true-causes-of-anti-semitism/ – “A couple of crucial caveats here: there are many Jews out there (most, I would say) who are totally unaware of all this. Even “Conservative” and “Reform” synagogues don’t preach that too overtly (though sometimes even they do). This kind of religious racism is mostly taught in Orthodox Yeshivas and, of course, in various Haredi institutions in Israel. For these ignorant Jews any such explanations of the causes of antisemitism in world history are not only offensive (blaming the victim) but also completely unfair (“my family never said any such things!”).”

Russia’s Stand-Off Capability: The 800 Pound Gorilla in Syria – by Andrei Martyanov – http://www.unz.com/article/russia-the-800-pound-gorilla/ – “The Russian military contingent in Syria is not just some military base—it is the force tightly integrated with Russian Armed Forces that have enough reach and capability to make anyone face some extremely unpleasant choices, including the fact that it is Russia, not the US, who controls escalation to a threshold and that can explain a non-stop anti-Russian hysteria in US media since the outcome of the war in Syria became clear. Let us only hope that all described above remains merely speculation and has no basis in real life—if those scenarios do not become reality, it is all for the better.”

If Washington Wants Syria’s Oil, It’s Going to Have to Fight for It – US-backed SDF is trying to seize vital resources that are crucial to the Syria’s survival – by Mike Whitney – http://russia-insider.com/en/politics/if-washington-wants-syrias-oil-its-going-have-fight-it/ri21073 – “For three years ISIS had besieged Syrian troops in Deir Ezzor city and its airport. It had not once managed to successfully attack the Syrian headquarter or to kill high ranking officers. Now, as U.S. proxy forces “advised” by U.S. special forces, have taken position north of Deir Ezzor, “ISIS” suddenly has the intelligence data and precision mortar capabilities to kill a bunch of visiting Russian officers?.. That is not plausible. No one in Damascus, Baghdad, Tehran or Moscow will believe that…” (“Syria – U.S. CentCom Declares War On Russia”, Moon of Alabama)”

Apparently, our elected officials can’t be bothered to stand up for the rights of we the people or the Constitution they swore to protect. After all, the Fourth Amendment doesn’t exist, which protects Americans from unreasonable searches and seizures or anything. As Amash pointed out, the government will now be able to kick in the doors of any private property surrounding the border of the DC Metro Rail System without needing a warrant based on any probable cause.”

Foiling US Plans to Steal Syria’s Oil – An effective declaration of war on Russia in Syria by the US over the last two weeks has gone unnoticed in Western media. – How long can they keep this deception going? – by David Macilwain – http://russia-insider.com/en/politics/foiling-us-plans-steal-syrias-oil/ri21100 – “For Russia and Syria the gloves are clearly now off, both in Deir al Zour and in the “de-confliction zone” around Idlib, following the joint US-Al Qaeda operations in both areas. The scale and success of their attacks on some of the most notorious centres of White Helmets-Al Nusra operations such as Khan Shaikoun and Urm al Kubra has evidently disabled the insurgents’ media operations, forcing Al Jazeera to use footage from a week earlier.”

Control 101: Creating Consensus Reality – by Patrick Henningsen – https://www.newdawnmagazine.com/articles/control-101-creating-consensus-reality – “In today’s formative education, school textbooks and assigned reading material are powerful tools used to shape students’ views. Often what is imprinted in one’s memory is not particular details and facts but rather an atmosphere, an impression, or a tone. It can be argued this impression may be more influential in forming a pupil’s contextual world or nationalist view… Professor of Education Dr. Michael H. Romanowski, explains: ‘The authority of textbooks coupled with the ‘objectivity’ of the technical knowledge that they communicate encourages students to accept unquestionably the impressions and worldview created by the language of textbooks.’ ”

Israeli Website Claims ISIS Commander Revealed As Mossad Agent – by Whitney Webb – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47835.htm – “Given the reports of Benjamin’s arrest, last year’s strange-seeming statement by Israel’s military intelligence chief, Maj. Gen. Herzi Halevy, makes more sense. Halevy had stated that Israel does not want to see Daesh defeated and also had expressed concern about the recent offensives against Daesh territory, lamenting the “most difficult” situation the group had found itself in at the time. He further added that Israel would do “all we can so as to not find ourselves in such a situation” where Daesh faces defeat… In light of Benjamin’s arrest, part of Halevy’s concern for Daesh may have been born out of the fear that a Daesh defeat could put the lives of Mossad agents, as well as years of their work within Daesh, at risk.”

Yet it is not even headline news on any of the corporate media outlets’ home pages right now (seriously, check for yourself).”

And make no mistake, at the time, the world was standing in awe.”

First, the Russians clearly believe that this attempt to kill or capture a platoon of the Russian military police was planned by the United States. The fact that they are making this accusation officially shows the degree of irritation felt by the Russians about the duplicity of the Americans. Second, this is the first time, at least to my knowledge, that Russian Spetsnaz forces had to be sent in to rescue a surrounded Russian subunit. All Spetsnaz operators survived, but three of them were wounded in the operation (the Russians are not saying how badly). The close air support by very low flying SU-25 aircraft was obviously coordinated by Spetsnaz forward air controllers and probably saved the day. In other words, this was a close call and things could have ended much more badly (just imagine what the Takfiri crazies would have done, on video, to any captured Russian serviceman!).” (emphasis added)

Where is the equivalent of the Freeze Movement that filled the streets of Manhattan in the 1980s, demanding that President Reagan withdraw battlefield nuclear weapons from Europe?.. Today, according to secret NATO documents obtained by the German newspaper, Suddeutsche Zetung, this vital treaty is likely to be abandoned as “nuclear targeting planning is increased”. The German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel has warned against ‘repeating the worst mistakes of the Cold War … All the good treaties on disarmament and arms control from Gorbachev and Reagan are in acute peril. Europe is threatened again with becoming a military training ground for nuclear weapons. We must raise our voice against this.’.. But not in America. The thousands who turned out for Senator Bernie Sanders’ “revolution” in last year’s presidential campaign are collectively mute on these dangers.

The New Manhattan Project: Ongoing Research Reveals the Roots

The New Manhattan Project: Ongoing Research Reveals the Roots of Global Climate Control and the Massive Program Filling the Skies with Chemical Spray

by Bruce Tanner

On April 29, Peter A. Kirby did a presentation (video below) in San Francisco, outlining some of his research and theories on the Chemtrails we see in the sky above us almost every day in most parts of the Western world, and on how they got there.

In the Summer of 2016, Kirby published his comprehensive Chemtrails Exposed: A New Manhattan Project. For Peter, this marked the end of Phase 1 of what he sees as a long-term research project to document one of the most ambitious, and potentially devastating, scientific and industrial projects ever conceived by man. In his book, and in the lecture below, he outlines many, many of the institutions and documented players in the project, each of which has a past and a paper trail that can give us a deeper look into what’s been done and where we may be going. Peter has good reason to compare this with the gigantic and covert venture by the U.S. Deep State to create the Atom Bomb during WWII.

Starting in 2009, he began digging into books, magazines, libraries, government reports and the Internet to find information to explain the officially denied and yet in-your-face program of enormously extensive spraying of chemicals from planes being seen and documented all over the world. By the time Kirby started his research, there was, as he says in his book, already a problem, not of too little information but of too much. There were dozens of books and documents covering various aspects of a project that was obviously too big to sweep under the rug. But there was nothing that tied it all together and got to the bottom of what was going on.

Peter found, though, that there were smoking guns all along the trails of evidence, many in government and research papers, in professional journals, and in unbelievably candid statements made by scientists and project leaders, that piqued his curiosity and lead him deeper on the trail. He shares all this material, and his deductions from it in Chemtrails Exposed and in this video presentation.

Was the 1933 Berlin Reichstag fire a False Flag or not?

Today on TomatoBubble.com Mike King posted an article claiming vehemently that the Reichstag fire was really set by the partially blind leftist foreigner Marinus van der Lubbe, who was beheaded for the crime, and that anyone stating otherwise was lying. So I did a few searches and came up with the three articles below:

Historians find ‘proof’ that Nazis burnt Reichstag

By Tony Paterson in Berlin – 15 Apr 2001

THE first documentary evidence has emerged to support the view that the Nazis started the 1933 Reichstag fire that Hitler used as a pretext to establish a dictatorship.

While historians have agreed that there is no substance to Nazi claims that German Communists were to blame for the blaze, there has also been a lack of evidence to back the widely held belief that Hitler’s supporters burnt down the parliament building in Berlin.

After poring over 50,000 pages of hitherto unexamined documents from former East German and Soviet archives, four leading German historians have now concluded that the fire was a Nazi plot. Marinus van der Lubbe, 24, a pro-Communist Dutch labourer, was beheaded by the Nazis after admitting that he started the blaze alone to encourage a workers’ uprising.

The news magazine Der Spiegel backed this version of events in the 1960s after a wide-ranging investigation. Now, however, the four historians argue that Der Spiegel’s coverage was part of a cover-up by Nazi sympathisers to protect the culprits from prosecution. Their findings put them at odds with other leading academics.

They base their case on remarks by Adolf Rall, a thief and Nazi stormtrooper, whose body was found in woods near Berlin in November 1933. Rall is said to have told prosecutors of a meeting of the SA stormtroopers during which the SA leader, Karl Ernst, ordered them to enter the Reichstag through a tunnel and sprinkle flammable liquid inside.

Ernst is said to have told his men that an excuse was needed to begin attacking Communists. Hitler used the fire to justify the arrest and torture of 25,000 Left-wing activists and to pass an emergency decree establishing absolute Nazi authority.

According to the historians, a former stormtrooper working in the jail where Rall was serving a sentence, heard of his statement and tipped off the SA. Its leaders are then said to have arranged for the statements to be destroyed by accomplices in the prosecutors’ office and for him to be murdered.

His remarks however are said to have been referred to in other papers found in the archives. The four historians – Hersch Fischler, Jurgen Schmaedeke, Alexander Bahar and Wilfred Kugel – say Nazi complicity in the blaze was kept secret by ex-Nazi journalists after the war.

Der Spiegel’s investigation in the 1960s was led by the historical researcher Fritz Tobias. His findings have been backed by the historian Hans Mommsen and are supported by one of his British counterparts, Ian Kershaw, in his recent work Hitler 1889-1936: Hubris.

The historians – writing in the journal Historische Zeitschrift – accuse Mr Tobias of “wanting to dispel the odium of arson from National Socialism” through his claims. Mr Tobias has defended himself, saying: “I was born into a Social Democratic household and am the last person to want to exculpate Hitler and his consorts.”

Last week, Der Spiegel published a 10-page rebuttal of the four historians’ conclusions. It said: “The thesis which holds that van der Lubbe was the only arsonist involved remains the most plausible explanation.” Although Mr Tobias was not an ex-Nazi, the magazine conceded that other former members had been employed.

Adolf Rall

Adolf Rall, was the eldest of five children, was born in Berlin on 7th June 1905. After leaving school he became a locksmith. In the late 1920s he joined the Sturmabteilung (SA).

On 30th April, 1932, Rall was arrested for stealing cars in Dresden. He was found guilty and sent to prison. Soon after his release he was arrested again for car theft and was returned to prison. In April 1933, he was sentenced for stealing a Daimler sedan in Stuttgart. (1)

According to a German anti-Nazi newspaper, Pariser Tageblatt, published in Paris, Rall had information about the Reichstag Fire. (2) It was claimed that “a former stormtrooper working in the jail where Rall was serving a sentence”, discovered that he knew what had happened. (3)

It was stated that Karl Ernst and Hermann Göring were involved in planning the act of arson. Rall suggested that before the Reichstag fire broke out, he had been in “the subterranean passageway that connects the Reichstag assembly building to the building in which the government apartment of the Reich President Hermann Göring is located. Rall said that he had personally witnessed various members of his SA unit bringing the explosive liquids into the building”. Apparently, Ernst told Rall “that an excuse was needed to begin attacking Communists”. (4)

Adolf Rall died in his cell on 2nd November, 1933. It was reported in The Daily Telegraph that the leaders of the SA “arranged for the statements to be destroyed by accomplices in the prosecutors’ office and for him to be murdered.” (5)

Rudolf Diels and Hans Gisevius also provided information to support this story.

Book Review

 

The Reichstag Fire, 68 years on

Alexander Bahar, Wilfried Kugel: Der Reichstagbrand – Wie Geschichte gemacht wird (The Reichstag Fire – How History is Created), edition q, Berlin 2001, ISBN 3-86124-523-2, 864 pages, price: 68.00 DM

5 July 2001

On February 27, 1933—more than 68 years ago—the Berlin Reichstag, the seat of Germany’s parliament, was set on fire. Shortly after the fire began, the Dutch left-wing radical Marinus van der Lubbe was arrested at the scene of the crime, apparently as the sole culprit.

Even before his identity was established, the Nazi leaders accused the German Communist Party (KPD) of having committed arson. According to Nazi propaganda, the Reichstag fire was intended as a signal for a communist uprising that had long been planned—a claim for which there was not a shred of evidence. In actual fact, the KPD leadership was neither willing nor able to organize such an uprising, so the Reichstag fire could not have been a signal for it.

For the Nazis, who had been in power less than a month, since January 30, 1933, the Reichstag fire was the excuse for a hitherto unparalleled persecution of Communist and Social Democratic workers, intellectuals and party leaders. On February 28, 1933 alone, just one day after the fire, thousands of persons active in, or allied with, the workers movement were arrested. The first to be arrested also included writers Egon Erwin Kisch, Ludwig Renn and Carl von Ossietzky, later murdered by the Nazis in a concentration camp.

All left-wing newspapers, including the Social Democratic daily Vorwärts, the Communist Party press and the German Trotskyists’ newspaper Permanente Revolution, were confiscated and banned.

Two decrees put into effect only one day later, the “Decree on the Protection of People and State”, subtitled “against communist acts of violence endangering the state,” and the “Decree Against Treason of the German People and High-Treason Activities,” were used to annul practically overnight the essential basic rights incorporated in the constitution of the Weimar Republic. These so-called “fire decrees” stayed in effect until the end of the Third Reich and formed the pseudo-legal basis for the entire Nazi dictatorship.

In the days immediately following the fire, the Nazis used the opportunity to generally weaken the entire German workers movement and prepare its destruction, a pressing task since early Reichstag elections had been scheduled for March 5, 1933, and a Nazi election victory was by no means certain.

There were still millions of workers organized in the SPD (Social Democrats), the KPD and the trade unions who were prepared to fight against the Nazis. The results of the March elections made this clear: the SPD and the KPD were still able to garner a combined vote of 13.2 million, the same number of votes they had received during the last elections in 1932. The NSDAP (Nazis) received 17.2 million votes (compared to 11.7 million in the 1932 elections), but were not able to gain an absolute majority of votes on their own. This was only possible with the aid of their German Nationalist allies from the “Kampffront Schwarz-Rot-Weiss”.

It was the SPD leadership’s capitulation before the Nazis and the division of the workers due to the “social fascism theory” propagated by the leaders of the Stalinist KPD that prevented National Socialism from being stopped at the last minute and combated.

As early as 1931, Leon Trotsky already formulated the task at hand in his open letter to the members of the KPD, How Can National Socialism be Defeated?:

“The front must now be directed against fascism. And this common front of direct struggle against fascism, embracing the entire proletariat, must be utilised in the struggle against the Social Democracy, directed as a flank attack, but no less effective for all that.

“It is necessary to show by deeds a complete readiness to make a bloc with the Social Democrats against the fascists in all cases in which they will accept a bloc… We must understand how to tear the workers away from their leaders in reality. But reality today is-the struggle against fascism…

“The overwhelming majority of the Social Democratic workers will fight against the fascists, but–for the present at least–only together with their organisations. This stage cannot be skipped. We must help the Social Democratic workers in action–in this new and extraordinary situation–to test the value of their organizations and leaders at this time, when it is a matter of life and death for the working class.”(1)

As we know, history took a different turn: the Nazis were victorious, and the German and European working class suffered its worst and most devastating defeat. The authors leave no doubt as to the fact that the leaders of both the SPD and the KPD bear decisive responsibility for this defeat. This is made particularly clear in the authors’ portrayal of the so-called “Prussian coup,” the ouster of the SPD-led Prussian government in July 1932 by the Reich Chancellor (head of government) of the time, Franz von Papen. Although the majority of their members were only waiting for the word to offer massive resistance, the SPD and trade union leaders didn’t put up even the semblance of a fight against Papen’s “cold coup d’etat,” and thus paved the way for the Nazis.

Who were the arsonists?

To this very day, there is hardly any event in German history that has been debated as heatedly as the issue of who really set the Reichstag on fire.

In years of meticulous research, the two authors of the book, historian Alexander Bahar and physicist and psychologist Wilfried Kugel, carried out the first comprehensive evaluation of the 50,000 pages of original court, state attorney office and secret police (Gestapo) files that had been locked away in Moscow and East Berlin until 1990. The result is a remarkable and explosive, more than 800-page document that for the first time provides almost complete circumstantial evidence that the Nazis prepared and set the Reichstag fire themselves.

The authors have thus succeeded in disproving a hypothesis that even today is still fairly widespread: that the Dutchman Marinus van der Lubbe was the sole perpetrator. They “base their evidence largely on original documents that are stored in public archives, but have not been evaluated up to now… The book contradicts in many ways all of the research reports that have been published so far on the Reichstag fire, based on what the authors say is the first thorough evaluation of all presently available relevant sources… In summary, the authors have succeeded after years of work in presenting a comprehensive chain of circumstantial evidence—albeit one that will only have a conclusive character for those readers who are prepared to take on the intellectual challenge presented by the often highly complex and convoluted aspects of this case of political crime.” (2)

Bahar and Kugel describe the two contradictory hypotheses as to who was actually responsible for setting the fire as follows:

“As incontestable as it is that the Nazis benefited from the Reichstag fire and made skillful use of it in establishing their dictatorship, opinion remains divided as to who actually committed the deed. The communists accused by the Nazi authorities at the Reichstag Fire Trial in Leipzig were already ruled out in 1933 for obvious reasons: quite apart from the lack of evidence, the suicidal and thus nonsensical nature of such a deed was self-evident, despite Nazi propaganda to the contrary. So did Marinus van der Lubbe, the 75% vision-impaired Dutch left-wing radical communist arrested in the burning Reichstag set the fire on his own? Or were the culprits to be found among the Nazis?” (3)

As early as the summer of 1933, the Brown Book on the Reichstag Fire and Hitler’s Terror was published in Switzerland under the editorship of Willi Münzenberg. In this book, German emigrés attempted to provide proof that the Nazis had committed the crime in a secret operation run by Nazi leader Hermann Göring. And even before the Reichstag Fire Trial in Leipzig, the “Legal Commission of the International Investigation Committee” came to the conclusion that the Nazis had set the fire themselves. Up to 1949, this was the prevailing opinion of all serious contemporaries outside of Germany. “Everyone abroad was and remains convinced that the Nazis set fire to the Reichstag.” (4)

In Germany, however, the legend of Marinus van der Lubbe as the sole perpetrator was created after 1945 by the first head of the Gestapo, Rudolf Diels, and his former staff. Diels, who was in charge of the sweeping arrests carried out on the night of the fire, had every reason to exonerate the Nazi rulers after World War II, since he was deeply involved in the Reichstag fire himself. As the authors explain:

“six hours before the Reichstag fire, Rudolf Diels, head of the … Political Police since February 23, 1933 and subsequently head of the Secret State Police Office (Gestapo), wrote the following police radio telegram which was sent to all police stations in Prussia at about 6:00 p.m.: ‘Communists reportedly plan to carry out systematic raids on police squads and members of nationalist associations with the aim of disarming them.’ … ‘Suitable countermeasures are to be taken immediately, and where necessary communist functionaries placed under protective custody.’” (5)

“The arrests carried out the next night had thus already been initiated by Rudolf Diels, the Chief of the Political Police, on the afternoon of February 27.” (6)

The authors prove that it would have been impossible for Marinus van der Luppe to set on fire a building as large as the Reichstag on his own, by reconstructing in minute detail the course of the fire on the basis of countless testimony documents and investigation and court files (particularly in Chapters 2 and 4).

Their conclusion is that “the ‘culprit’ van der Lubbe had even less time to carry out his alleged act of arson than has hitherto been assumed, namely only 12 to 13 minutes… The view often expressed in historical literature that the Reichstag arson had taken Göring, Goebbels and Hitler ‘by surprise’ must now presumably be regarded once and for all as a myth.” (7)

In Chapters 5 to 7, the authors document the proceedings at the so-called Reichstag Fire Trial, which began on September 21, 1933 in Leipzig, and then present the circumstantial evidence for the guilt of the Nazis. The exact evaluation of all of the fire expert reports leads to one conclusion: “ All of the fire experts agreed that the fire in the Reichstag assembly hall had to have been set by several culprits. Van der Lubbe’s self-incrimination was thus proved to be a lie.” (8) (My emphasis – W.K.)

In the trial before the Leipzig Reichsgericht court, which the Nazis had originally planned as a show trial, the accused were “van der Lubbe and comrades.” The Dutchman’s alleged “comrades” were Ernst Torgler, the former chairman of the KPD parliamentary group in the Reichstag, and three Bulgarian communists who were living illegally in Germany: Georgi Dimitrov, who had been the head of the Berlin-based Western European Office of the Executive Committee of the Comintern (Third International) until early 1933, Blagoj Popov and Vasil Tanev. Despite coerced witnesses (including concentration camp prisoners), planted and forged “evidence,” and torture and terror against the accused, the Nazis never succeeded in proving the alleged guilt of the communists. Dimitrov’s undaunted conduct in court, in particular, added to the embarrassment for the Nazi leaders. The Reichsgericht passed its verdict on December 23, 1933: “The accused Torgler, Dimitrov, Popov and Tanev are acquitted.” Marinus van der Lubbe, the only “presentable” culprit, was sentenced to death and executed on January 10, 1934, despite the existing expert opinions and testimony which conclusively ruled out the Dutchman as the sole perpetrator.

Finally, the authors expose the Nazis as the only feasible culprits. Among the documentary evidence the authors base this verdict on is the testimony of SA member Adolf Rall (who was later murdered by the SA and the Gestapo). The emigré newspaper Pariser Tageblatt reported on December 24, 1933: “he (Rall) stated he was a member of the SA’s “Sturm 17” unit. Before the Reichstag fire broke out, he had been in the subterranean passageway that connects the Reichstag assembly building to the building in which the government apartment of the Reich President [Hermann Göring] is located. Rall said that he had personally witnessed various members of his SA unit bringing the explosive liquids into the building.” (10)

Hans Bernd Gisevius, who had worked as a junior lawyer for the political police from August to December 1933, made the following testimony at the Nuremberg War Crimes Trial in 1946: “It was Goebbels who first came up with the idea of setting fire to the Reichstag. Goebbels discussed this with the leader of the Berlin SA brigade, Karl Ernst, and made detailed suggestions on how to go about carrying out the arson. A certain tincture known to every pyrotechnician was selected. You spray it onto an object and then it ignites after a certain time, after hours or minutes. In order to get into the Reichstag building, they needed the passageway that leads from the palace of the Reichstag President to the Reichstag. A unit of ten reliable SA men was put together, and now Göring was informed of all the details of the plan, so that he coincidentally was not out holding an election speech on the night of the fire, but was still at his desk in the Ministry of the Interior at such a late hour… The intention right from the start was to put the blame for this crime on the Communists, and those ten SA men who were to carry out the crime were instructed accordingly.” (11)

Based on this testimony and a wealth of other circumstantial evidence, the course of this act of arson can be reconstructed as follows:

“On February 27, 1933, at about 8:00 p.m. a commando group of at least 3, and at most 10 SA men led by Hans Georg Gewehr entered the basement of the palace of the Reichstag President. The group took the incendiary substances deposited there, and used the subterranean passageway to go from the Reichstag President’s palace to the Reichstag building, where they prepared the assembly hall in particular with a self-igniting liquid they probably mixed in the hall. After a certain latency period, the liquid set off the fire in the assembly hall. The group made their getaway through the subterranean passageway and the basement of the Reichstag President’s palace (and possibly also through the adjacent basement leading to the machinery and government employees’ building) to the public street ‘Reichstagsufer.’ Göring entered the burning Reichstag building at 9:21 p.m. at the latest, presumably in order to provide a cover for the commando group’s retreat.

“Van der Lubbe was brought to the Reichstag by the SA at exactly 9:00 p.m. and let into the building by them. The sound of breaking glass which was noticed by witnesses and which was allegedly due to van der Lubbe breaking window panes to get into the building was probably only intended to attract the attention of the public. The Dutchman was sacrificed as the only available witness.” (12)

Almost all of the SA men involved in the deed (with the exception of Hans Georg Gewehr) and many accessories to the crime were later murdered by the Nazis, above during the so-called “Röhm putsch” on June 30, 1934.

Responsibility for the Reichstag Fire was a constant source of debate between German historians after the Second World War. In the early 1960’s, the attempt was made to establish the hypothesis of van der Lubbe as the sole culprit—in particular by Rudolf Augstein’s magazine Der Spiegel and the “amateur historian” and intelligence officer Fritz Tobias. To this very day, some prominent German historians base themselves on this hypothesis and still attempt to deny the guilt of the Nazis. With their new book Der Reichstagbrand, Alexander Bahar and Wilfried Kugel have provided authoritative evidence to finally dispel the longstanding controversy.

The nature of Judaism and the question of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion

Regarding The Protocols and Judaism and the accordant political “philosophy” Zionism, I highly recommend Gilad Atzmon’s “The Wandering Who.”

IMO, Judaism is the creation of the AI construct (possibly associated with the Draco reptilians) that has targeted Earth for thousands of years as part of “its” program of conquest in this sector of the universe. The idea of a “chosen” people is the ultimate expression of what Eckhart Tolle has called the psychopathology of the “garden variety ego.” The ego (everyone experiences the challenges of this phenomenon) is a sub-routine running in the mind that creates itself as some “thing” separate from all-that-is, and sets up military-grade psychological defense mechanisms to protect its illusion of separation. It has no interest or care for any other being it necessarily sees as separate from itself, except for the advantages that being can provide for its strategies of self-preservation, control and ego-gratification (imaginary psychological states).

Judaism was adopted by the Turkic Khazarian Kaganate in the second half of the the first millenium (which timeline may not be accurate, another story entirely) for the creation of political advantages and the pre-eminence of their empire over their neighbors. The psychopathology of the “chosenness” hook in the Judeo-tribal identity complex seems to have eventually dominated their mindsets. When the Khazars were eventually overrun by the Turkic Russ empire toward the end of the first millennium, the “religious” leaders of Khazar society refused to capitulate and be assimilated by the Russian culture.

It’s my theory that from the time of their defeat as an empire, elements of the Khazarian “shtetel” leadership operated an underground “secret council” that eventually spread throughout the lands populated by the Khazarian diaspora (i.e. Ashenazi Jews). IMO, this secret council created Sabbatean Judaism, the Rothschild financial empire, with its powerful intelligence arm that eventually emerged publicly as the Mossad, as well as the Bavarian Illuminati (with its connections to the Jesuits, another possible project of the proposed Khazarian secret council). The Illuminati went underground and penetrated all of the secret societies of the West, turning them to the task of implementing the grand agenda of world conquest.

Again IMO, The Protocols are an accurate reflection of the thinking of the secret council, leaked, intentionally (as part of their “religion’s” tenet of announcing their intentions – “predictive programming”), or not. The eerie accuracy of the way history has followed the path of implementation of The Protocols throughout the 20th Century to today, and the ways in which the strategies evident within the Global Imperium (the UN, Agenda 21, Social Marxism, domination of banking, the surveillance state, etc. ad nauseum) are a powerful indication of the reality of The Protocols.

A Conversation on “Gender Identity”

This is a set of comments on an article on Alternet: “White House to Public Schools: Let Students Use Whatever Bathroom They Want” (http://www.alternet.org/civil-liberties/obama-administration-directs-public-schools-let-students-use-whatever-bathroom-they) between myself and “FreethinkingWorldGuy,” inspired by one of his several comments below the article:

You characterize a call for sensible treatment of school kids “liberal self-righteousness”? So what should Obama do in your opinion? Send the schools a note urging them to continue creating similar “bathroom laws” around the country? Or just keep quiet, allowing disruptions and problems that these anti-transgender laws are causing to spread?
My first response, to comment above: @FreethinkingWorldGuy – Hey, kewl screenname, dood. Creates just the right impression to earn you a pass from the politically correct sheeple.

What should Obama do? Well, how about remaining within the bounds of the Constitution which clearly does not grant the authority to legislate to the “Unitary Presidency?” Not even the Congress has the power to dictate such policy to the 50 sovereign states. Are you down with creating One Big Brother Over All to dictate to us everything we can do to the End Of Time, amen?

Glad you like my screename! Weird stuff about what my it can do for me, but you’re certainly free to have your own opinion about that.

But to the matter at hand…

So is your beef with Obama is that he’s legislating unlawfully by sending the memo to schools? Not seeing it. Where do you stand re: the notorious “bathroom laws”?

Re: Big Brother, no, I’m a big privacy fan, which is EXACTLY why I am glad to see Obama taking a position and step to protect the privacy of school children.

I’m getting the sense that it is YOU who likes the idea of Big Brother–in the form of public school teachers and staff–policing children’s choice of bathroom.

Me: You seriously think that children have a problem with their choice of bathroom, do you? Like they thought it up on their own, just like they independently started worrying about what their “choice of gender” should be? So, then there’s no agenda going on to influence children’s identities, to keep them confused, to keep them on the Common Core bandwagon so they grow up confused about who they are or even how to think? So then the Fed administration has every right to dictate what people in all the 50 states have to do about their bathroom habits to protect the masses of poor suffering cross-gender kids and protect them from the mean local populations, school boards, teachers and staff?

Right, got you.

In general, no, I don’t think children have a problem with their choice of bathroom. For transgender people (including children), they didn’t have a problem either–until we started seeing “bathroom bill” laws pop up.

It is true that most of us self-identify with gender to match our anatomy. But it doesn’t line up that way for everyone. I discard black-and-white thinking about necessity that gender match anatomy for 100% of the population, or that gender identity is a choice.

There is a growing body of science to explain why alignment doesn’t always line up, and I have seen a number of compelling cases where children–even at a very young age (e.g. 4), self-identify with the opposite sex, regardless of efforts by some to “correct” them. Transgender people are clear about their own gender identity, regardless of some who might believe and/or claim to the contrary.

“So then the Fed administration has every right to dictate what people in all the 50 states have to do about their bathroom habits to protect the masses of poor suffering cross-gender kids and protect them from the mean local populations, school boards, teachers and staff?”

The concepts of equal treatment, including freedom from discrimination, goes to the very core identity of the United States, in particular as is laid out in the US Constitution. The 50 states you refer to should NOT be allowed to write laws that burden any group of people based on religion, race, sex, or gender. Moreover, the 50 states do, to varying degrees, accept federal funds–to the tune of many billions of dollars. Federal Title IX funds specifically forbids gender-based discrimination.

You write like there would be no fallout from “bathroom bill” laws. There already has been, and it will get worse if it isn’t nipped in the bud. Again, they cause problems were the weren’t any before.

@FreethinkingWorldGuy -You write like there would be no fallout from the increasingly arrogant actions of the clearly illegitimate Federal Administrative System which is increasingly normalizing its violations of the Constitution, of the American revolutionaries’ clear intention that the newly minted States were each nations in their own rights, and of due process.

“Transgender people are clear about their own gender identity, regardless of some who might believe and/or claim to the contrary.” While this may be true for adults, your assertion that 4 year olds are clear on this is, I’m quite sure, not backed up by anything but the writings of some psychiatrists and psychologists who are enrolled in the social engineering matrix of globalism and social engineering. Their “studies” and the “growing body of science” you tout are highly subjective and far from scientific.

In my personal experience, my next door neighbor was seduced by gay men on our block as a young teenager and “decided” that he was gay. My observation at the time was that this led to extreme difficulties, suffering, and confusion for him, and to the destruction of his family of origin. He was far from clear about how to manage the direction of his life.

“The concepts of equal treatment, including freedom from discrimination, goes to the very core identity of the United States, in particular as is laid out in the US Constitution.” Really? You, of course, are referring to where slaves are legitimized and deemed to count as 3/5 of a human being for the purpose of representation in Congress. Or perhaps you’re talking about the Native Americans, who were largely exterminated? The idea of “not burdening” people on the basis of “gender” is, I think, extremely strained, and has become weaponized against the stability of our cultures and of the family unit upon which the strength of human culture depends. The “government” cannot succeed in building strong human families, and, I think, has no intention to do so.

Your observation that the states are now dependent on Federal funding is very true and particularly insidious. This is, I think, by design. The Fed Admin. has access to essentially limitless hot money from the bankers at the Federal Reserve, borrowed against the will of the people, who will have no choice but to be saddled with this debt, to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars owed by American babies at birth. This hot money is also a weapon against honest Americans, and the working and middle classes are being driven by it to the wall. To force “gender equality,” a concept which is amorphous and ambiguous at best upon us as a consequence of a criminally distorted financial system is both tragic and wicked. If this is what you espouse as being a matter of course and something that is “good for us,” then I think you are complicit in this criminality.

“To force ‘gender equality,’ a concept which is amorphous and ambiguous at best upon us as a consequence of a criminally distorted financial system is both tragic and wicked.”

You are muddying up a lot of things here. So let’s sort things out, shall we? First of all, the primary issue that we disagree on is gender identity. Apparently, you believe that that is black-and-white, cut and dry. And you know what? For some people it is. But for others it is not. And here’s a kicker for you on that: Variation on this is NATURAL. It’s not, as you believe, linked to a “criminally distorted financial system”.

I stated earlier that transgender people are not confused about their gender identity, which is counter to what you believe. To be fair, I’ll admit that I oversimplified that a bit; there are some people who actually do go through a process of development and discovery, regarding gender their own identity and sexuality. And some people actually identify partly with BOTH genders. The main difference between you and I on this matter is that while you see this as confusion, I accept it as within normality of the human condition. People get confused when their instinct re: gender identity leads them (naturally) to have certain feelings and inclinations, but outside influences are telling them that such feelings are wrong. I could point you to science and/or case studies backing up early gender identity, but when you say things like:

“While this may be true for adults, your assertion that 4 year olds are clear on this is, I’m quite sure, not backed up by anything but the writings of some psychiatrists and psychologists who are enrolled in the social engineering matrix of globalism and social engineering”,

It is clear to me that you see everything through the prism of conspiracy. So I won’t bother.

“ ‘The concepts of equal treatment, including freedom from discrimination, goes to the very core identity of the United States, in particular as is laid out in the US Constitution.’ Really? You, of course, are referring to where slaves are legitimized and deemed to count as 3/5 of a human being for the purpose of representation in Congress. Or perhaps you’re talking about the Native Americans, who were largely exterminated?”

SERIOUSLY?

You’re going to bring up the 3/5 slave compromise and horrendous treatment of American Indians in the context of a contemporary discussion on gender identity? Okay, let me spell it out for you: The 3/5 compromise was bad (though not as bad as NO representation) and the treatment of Indians was horrible. At least we agree on this, right? We also seem to agree on perils of national debt, and likely on some areas of mismanagement by the federal government. But those topics can be discussed separately from a discussion about gender identity.

Me: “You are muddying up a lot of things here. So let’s sort things out, shall we? First of all, the primary issue that we disagree on is gender identity. Apparently, you believe that that is black-and-white, cut and dry. And you know what? For some people it is. But for others it is not. And here’s a kicker for you on that: Variation on this is NATURAL. It’s not, as you believe, linked to a “crim inally distorted financial system”.”

How is it apparent that I think gender identity is cut-and-dried? I know that it is a very difficult issue and experience for many. However, I also think that it has become a wedge issue for cultural Marxists who deliberately want to damage, particularly children, in order to destabilize and engineer society.

I do think that we humans are stronger if we cultivate our health, and that we are stronger when we accept our true gender at birth. When we accept our bodies as they are, we have access to biological guidance of our feelings and impulses. When children are actively encouraged, or even forced, to question their “inner gender preference” at the expense of actually experiencing who they are, that tragic outcomes potentially eventuate. It seems obvious that such outcomes actually may threaten the survival of humanity, and certainly threaten the well-being of society and culture.

I also think it should be obvious that “gender identity” is not an appropriate matter for government to arrogate powers over. Creating the synthetic idea that psychological gender identity rises to the levels of race or real gender as far as the need for protections of equality is, I think, a weaponized concept being fed to the population with powerful propaganda which constitutes real violence.

“Government” did push and protect slavery and genocidal violence against Native Americans when it served the interests of power. I don’t think it’s a stretch to question whether what is now being done with psychological gender identity is not the promotion of real damage against Americans in the interests of elite power. And the primary tool these interests are using to dispossess and cripple their “subjects” is the criminally distorted financial system. Keeping the sheeple confused, at odds with themselves, unable to think critically, and identified with cultural Marxist themes serves the interests of our owners in maintaining their abilities to harvest our wealth (and if you think this isn’t what’s happening, I welcome your alternative analysis and the evidence to back that up). I think it is of a piece.

You seem to imply that anyone looking through “the prism of conspiracy” is unworthy of being engaged in your laser-targeted debate on gender identity. But how do you think that “the national debt” came to be? How do you think 6 (or 5) corporate conglomerates have come to control 95% of the information that people in the West consume? (and what is the monumental effect of that?) If you think this has arisen by accident, then there is clearly little ground to continue a conversation.

Comment to Dane Wigington’s thesis that CO2 warms Earth and acidifies oceans

Hunter-Wigington

Comment to video interview of Dane Wigington on Greg Hunter’s USA Watchdog.com – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJAwxY4WEqM&feature=youtu.be :

I have been working on the Geoengineering issue for several years in Santa Cruz, California. I have previously been coached by Dane Wigington in how to work with Weather Modification and Aerosol Spraying skeptics. I have tremendous respect for all of his tireless work to wake people up to the disastrous effects of the spray programs, and, especially HAARP and SBX (Sea-Based X-Band) Radars and their ruinous cold-air down-bursts used for Weather Mod. The down-bursts also create massive UP-Bursts that shred the ionosphere and the ozone layer, leading to the insane levels of UV-B and even UV-C that are being measured now. The UV radiation is one of the most dangerous factors in this, killing the world’s forests, the plankton that maintains life in the oceans, and the coral reefs.

That said, I must emphatically disagree with Dane’s assertions that CO2 is warming the planet and acidifying the oceans. CO2, according to some scientists, is at a near starvation level for plants on Earth. There is evidence that the planet has been cool within regular variations over hundreds of millions of years, and has been cool at times when CO2 in the atmosphere was more than 10 times higher than it is today. This evidence is found in the shells of fossil brachiopods, which evidently had no problems forming shells at those high concentrations of CO2. More than this, shortly before James Hansen, prime “global warming” propagandist, retired from NASA, a group of scientists there did a major experiment with an instrument on NASA’s TIMED satellite named SABER that showed that CO2 and nitric oxide in the upper atmosphere shed massive heat from solar storms BACK INTO SPACE, cooling the planet.

As for “ocean acidification,” you might look at these links: 1. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2014/12/evidence_discovered_that_ocean_acidification_scare_may_be_as_fraudulent_as_global_warming.html – 2. https://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/01/10/ocean-acidification-chicken-of-the-sea-little-strikes-again/ – 3. https://www.masterresource.org/ocean-acidification/ocean-acidification-another-failing-scare-story/

From the last link: “Overall the SPPI report makes for a fascinating (although quite technical) read. I recommend it to anyone who wants to get into the nitty-gitty details of how marine organisms from corals, to phytoplankton, to fish respond to changes in the ocean’s chemistry as a result from atmospheric CO2 enrichment… In conclusion, based on the many real-world observations and laboratory experiments described above, it is clear that recent theoretical claims of impending marine species extinctions, due to increases in the atmosphere’s CO2 concentration, have no basis in empirical reality. In fact, these unsupportable contentions are typically refuted by demonstrable facts… Additionally, SPPI has just announced its release of a strong critique (http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/originals/acid_test.html) of the NRDC documentary (also based upon Dr. Idso’s efforts). Here is the summary: “So what’s the story here? Are coral reefs really in their  last decades of existence? Will the shells of other calcifying marine life also dissolve away during our lifetimes? The NRDC film certainly makes it appear that such is the case; but a little scientific sleuthing  reveals nothing of substance in this regard. In fact, even a cursory review of the peer-reviewed scientific literature reveals that an equally strong case – if not a more persuasive one – can be made for the proposition that the ongoing rise in atmospheric CO2 concentration will actually prove a boon to calcifying marine life. Sadly, however, the NRDC chose to present an extreme one-sided, propagandized view of ocean acidification; and in this critique we present the part of the story that they clearly don’t want you to know.”

Bottom line: There is enormous funding for pushing the ideas that CO2 threatens life on Earth for purposes of Social Engineering and finalizing Technocratic control of the world’s population under an oligarchic tyranny. This is being done by the same people who now have unbelievable power to control weather systems, to control food, and to bring drought to pesky non-compliant regions (i.e. California right now). They literally threaten all life on Earth, principally the forests and oceans, as Dane says. There a HUGE problem here. It just is not from CO2.
