Intro to ‘More Than A Threat’
Justin Smith writes one of the best essays he has ever written. So kudos to Justin!
Justin writes about the Joint Plan of Action (JPA) which is the appellation of Obama’s delusion of peace with Iran over nukes and in which Obama is also offering billions of dollars in “Sanction Relief” to Iran. All the U.S. and the other negotiating Security Council members plus Germany get in return from Iran is an unverifiable PROMISE.
Read the preamble to the JPA and ask yourself if Iran will even come close to its part of the agreement.
The goal for these negotiations is to reach a mutually-agreed long-term comprehensive solution that would ensure Iran’s nuclear programme will be exclusively peaceful. Iran reaffirms that under no circumstances will Iran ever seek or develop any nuclear weapons. This comprehensive solution would build on these initial measures and result in a final step for a period to be agreed upon and the resolution of concerns. This comprehensive solution would enable Iran to fully enjoy its right to nuclear energy for peaceful purposes under the relevant articles of the NPT in conformity with its obligations therein. This comprehensive solution would involve a mutually defined enrichment programme with practical limits and transparency measures to ensure the peaceful nature of the programme. This comprehensive solution would constitute an integrated whole where nothing is agreed until everything is agreed. This comprehensive solution would involve a reciprocal, step-by-step process, and would produce the comprehensive lifting of all UN Security Council sanctions, as well as multilateral and national sanctions related to Iran’s nuclear programme.
There would be additional steps in between the initial measures and the final step, including, among other things, addressing the UN Security Council resolutions, with a view toward bringing to a satisfactory conclusion the UN Security Council’s consideration of this matter. The E3+3 and Iran will be responsible for conclusion and implementation of mutual near-term measures and the comprehensive solution in good faith. A Joint Commission of E3/EU+3 and Iran will be established to monitor the implementation of the near-term measures and address issues that may arise, with the IAEA responsible for verification of nuclear-related measures. The Joint Commission will work with the IAEA to facilitate resolution of past and present issues of concern. (Copied from text version from The Guardian PDF posting of the JPA Agreement)
So who believes Iran will the kind of access this preamble insinuates? Just for clarity sake the “E3/EU +3” references these nations: USA, Russia, China/France, Germany and the UK.
No it is time to read Justin Smith’s brilliant essay.

“Now I am become Death, the Destroyer of worlds.” -Hindu scripture from the ‘Bhagavad Gita’
In the aftermath of the November 24, 2013 interim deal to halt Iran’s nuclear ambitions, which is called the Joint Plan of Action (JPA), Americans bear witness to an Iranian regime that has supported international terrorism, while waging war against the United States and Israel since 1979. We see Secretary of State John Kerry, with an anti-American bias in everything he approaches, purposefully and knowingly pave the way to ensure that Iran will soon acquire a nuclear weapon, while Tzipi Livni and Yair Lapid, two members of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s cabinet, long “to be in a situation in which the Americans listen to us the way they used to listen to us in the past”. And properly so, America heard Benjamin Netanyahu reiterate that “Israel has the right and the obligation to defend itself, by itself, against any threat”.
Vali Nasr, dean of John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, released one of the most naive and idiotic statements in regards to the deal between the U.S, Western powers and Iran. He suggested that Iran might now be helpful in brokering a postwar settlement in Afghanistan, between the U.S. and the Taliban.
Does anyone really believe Iran will ever stop attacking the U.S. and Israel and their interests across the globe, as long as the mullahs, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Islam… the mother of all totalitarianisms-theocracy… keep Iran in a stranglehold?
For 444 days the islamoNazis of Iran held Americans hostage after deposing the Shah, and the attacks against the U.S. continued into the present. Eighty-five percent of the improvised explosive devices used in Iraq in 2004 were furnished by Iran, according to Lt General Moshe Ya’alon, former Israeli Defense chief of staff. Thirty thousand Revolutionary Guard Corps and Quds Force were actively fighting coalition forces in Iraq; throughout the Afghanistan War, these same forces formed hunter-killer teams for the sole mission of killing U.S. soldiers, according to the 5th Special Forces command hierarchy.
And when will Iran’s proxy “holy warriors” of Hezbollah ever be brought to a day of reckoning for the murders of 283 U.S. Marines in Beirut, Lebanon on October 23, 1983? Marines on a “peace-keeping” mission. One must wonder over President Ronald Reagan’s decision not to mount a swift retaliation… the only real failure of his Presidency.
Now, it is surreal to see John Kerry as the chief negotiator striving to limit Iran’s nuclear ambitions, when this is the same radical antiwar activist who never met an enemy of the United States that he didn’t like. Kerry should be criminally charged for not registering as an Iranian agent, because he advocated giving Iran nuclear fuel during the first presidential debate in 2004, as “a test” of Iran’s “true intentions”. And, this is seen as especially egregious, once one finds that Hassan Nemazee, top Kerry fund-raiser and alleged “agent” for Iran, stated in a 2004 deposition, that he “would not trust this regime (Iran) on the nuclear issue to have any intentions other than a weaponized program”.
Last week, Ruhollah Hossinian, a hardline lawmaker, stated, “It (JPA) practically tramples on Iran’s enrichment rights”. This is reminiscent of 2006, when the UN Security Council had set an August 31 deadline for Iran to halt its nuclear enrichment programs or face sanctions. On August 31, Iranian President Ahmadinejad, in a televised appearance, stated, “They should know that the Iranian nation will not let its rights be trampled on”. And by March 2007, Iran had added 3000 new centrifuges capable of manufacturing weapons grade uranium to its facilities at Natanz.
The ‘New York Times’ characterized the JPA agreement as “a chance to chart a new American course in the Middle East”, although its reality is virtually the exact same policies America has witnessed liberal Democrats employ for decades. In 1979, A.Q. Khan, a nuclear physicist, gave Pakistan nuclear weapons, under the careless watch of Zbigniew Brzezinski; Khan promptly proliferated this technology, first to North Korea and then to Iran, along with blueprints of a Chinese designed warhead. Madeleine Albright failed to halt Kim Jong Il’s nuclear weapons program during the Clinton administration, and now we see Obama and Kerry falling in line with the advocates of appeasement.
What does it mean to Iran’s mullahs that Obama and Kerry are unwilling to concede an Iranian “right” to enrich uranium? Absolutely nothing. The mullahs want nuclear weapons and a dominant position throughout the Middle East more than they desire peace and prosperity for their people, so no amount of sanctions will achieve a satisfactory result.
Utilizing numerous deceptions, such as tramp steamers off the U.S. and European coasts or physically crossing porous borders, it would not be too difficult for Iran to target 29 critical sites in America and the West, identified numerous times by successive Iranian presidents. Iran’s Shahab-4 missiles have a 2500 mile range and can carry biological, chemical or nuclear warheads. The destruction of these sites would seriously cripple Western power, killing millions of innocent people in the process.
How many times and in how many different ways do we have to hear Iran’s leaders state their intent to destroy “the Great Satan” – America and “the Little Satan” – Israel before we believe them and take their words to heart?
Make no mistake. President Hassan Rouhani is no different from his predecessors, Khatami and Ahmadinejad, and while he couches his statements in ambiguous and subtle nuances, ultimately he hopes to foist an Iranian Islamic nightmare on the world.
A few years after taking power, Ayatollah Ruhollah Musavi Khomenei said: “I say let Iran go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world”.
The JPA is merely another delaying tactic for Iran’s mullahs, who are just mere weeks away from seeing their goal come to fruition. And, despite all the best efforts of those like Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) who asserts “…strong sanctions…brought Iran to the table”, Iran will have nuclear weapons soon.
The world stands at a critical crossroads, and unfortunately the only real solution is a war to destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities and possibly remove a rogue regime from power, one that should have been targeted long before Iraq or Afghanistan. Rife with cohorts to the jihadists desiring negotiations, no matter the cost, the Obama administration will not answer this call, and Iran fully realizes this due to Obama’s “red-line” failure with Syria. The weight of this solution, unfairly and even more unfortunately, sits on the shoulders of Israel.
In the early 1930s, many viewed Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’ as just rhetoric, although he clearly had laid out his program to exterminate the Jews. Sixty-one million deaths, including six million Jews, lay at the feet of Neville Chamberlain’s appeasement plan, because, as so eloquently stated by Winston Churchill, the world lacked the “democratic courage, intellectual honesty, and willingness to act”. Let America and the world not make this same mistake again with Iran.

Here are a couple of Tony Newbill emails that brings another angle President Barack Hussein Obama’s reasoning in desiring to attack Syrian Chemical Weapons. Theme spoiler: Syrian WMDs are from Iraq and Saudi Arabian Intelligence is manipulating the USA into a Middle Eastern war with the object of gaining regional hegemony rather than Iran.

Is the Syrian Limited Strike [option] to Cover up the Iraqi WMDs??? They Need to be Asking Clapper because Even James Clapper, now the Director of National Intelligence [DNI] and formerly the director of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency [NGA, Here and Here] , said [corroboration Link] in 2003 that he believed materials had been moved out [Here, Here, Here, Here, Here and yes Yellowcake for Nukes too] of Iraq in the months before the war and cited satellite imagery.
Oh they want to make sure this doesn’t happen!!!!!
If the Bashar al-Assad regime falls, and should the securing of the chemical and biological stockpiles of Syria be necessary, what would be the effect if some of those materials and munitions bear Iraqi markings?
James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence in the Obama Administration, thought so.
From the Daily Beast:
Whether or not sensitive weapons technology was moved to Syria is a hotly disputed question in the intelligence community.

You can see this is leverage for Assad and Russia, and why they just want what they are calling a Limited strike.
Why does Assad Trust Kerry then?? Did they have an agreement that [Iraq WMDs are] Now is about to be Exposed??? And How tight [lipped] Obama and Other Democrats were before now?? Are Russia and China using this Knowledge of Iraqi WMDs in Syria against the Democrats and Obama???
Assad in 2010: I Trust John Kerry
Saddam’s WMDs and Russia
In the 1970s and 1980s there were several indications about Saddam Hussein’s development of the WMD programs (biological, chemical and nuclear). The Israeli attack on the Iraqi French-made Osirak nuclear reactor in 1981 slowed down the progress of the Iraq’s nuclear weapons program but the biological and chemical WMDs were highly developed, due to the Soviet assistance, Iraqi scientists and a sophisticated system of procurement, organized by the Iraqi Intelligence in Western Europe and in other parts of the World. The nuclear weapons program was never abandoned by the regime, and before the first Gulf War (1991) Iraq was very close to producing its own nuclear weapons. (There is some evidence that Saddam could have purchased nuclear technology from Pakistan, through Dr. Khan’s network, and that he has tried to buy nuclear weapons or components from China). The war destroyed the technical base for the production. But the highly skilled scientific and technical personnel (over 200) remained in place, dispersed. The regime managed to save their nuclear fuel, many technical means of production and the blueprints of the nuclear weaponization. The after-war international (UN) control proved ineffective. Iraq also saved an essential part of its biological and chemical warfare technology, materials and personnel. Some of the WMDs, materials, specialists from Iraq have been transferred abroad to continue research and to organize the production abroad: mainly to Sudan, Libya and Algeria but also to the neighboring Syria (with a purpose to strengthen Syrian regime’s offensive capabilities against Israel).
Saddam regime’s WMD policy after the 1st Gulf War
The efforts of the Saddam’s regime to preserve and develop its biological, chemical and even nuclear weapons capabilities have been well documented in a report, submitted to the U.S. House of Representatives by Yossef Bodansky on February 10, 1998 (See: Task Force on Terrorism & Unconventional Warfare, “The Iraqi WMD Challenge — Myths and Reality”). From the very beginning, Saddam Hussein embarked on a policy of concealment and cheating of the UN inspection. Thus the elimination of the Iraqi strategic military programs and the destruction of their technical means have never been completed and fully effective. “Despite Baghdad’s protestations, Iraq does have a small but very lethal operational arsenal of WMD and platforms capable of delivering them throughout the Middle East and beyond.” — summarized Yossef Bodansky in 1998 [page 2 of the report]. This capability was possible due to the following actions: (1) dispersing and hiding of WMD materials, technical means, blueprints for the production and personnel in Iraq proper; (2) transfer of a large part of the Iraqi WMD arsenal, technical means, materials for the production and scientific-technological personnel to other countries, mainly to Sudan, Libya and Algeria, and partly to Yemen and Syria; (3) reviving of the sophisticated system of illegal procurement of WMD technology, sub-systems and strategic materials in Western Europe (mainly Germany, Austria and Switzerland), via other countries (Bulgaria, Belarus, the Ukraine, Poland) and in Asia (Pakistan, Iran, North Korea, China).
After reading the Front Page Mag article you can see the CONNECTION TO THE MBH!!!! Saddam was rallying together the factions that had MBH members all through them with Russia, and this was a Threat to the Dollar continuing to be the Petrol Settlement Currency for OPEC international markets. Obama was placed in Power to counter this Russian Influence by Bribing the MBH away from Russian Influence.
Syria’s Chemical Weapons Came From Saddam’s Iraq
War On Terror: As the regime of Bashar Assad disintegrates, the security of his chemical arsenal is in jeopardy. The No. 2 general in Saddam Hussein’s air force says they were the WMDs we didn’t find in Iraq.
King Abdullah of neighboring Jordan warned that a disintegrating Syria on the verge of civil war puts Syria’s stockpile of chemical weapons at risk of falling into the hands of al-Qaida.
“One of the worst-case scenarios as we are obviously trying to look for a political solution would be if some of those chemical stockpiles were to fall into unfriendly hands,” he said.
The irony here is that the chemical weapons stockpile of Syrian thug Assad may in large part be the legacy of weapons moved from Hussein’s Iraq into Syria before Operation Iraqi Freedom.
If so, this may be the reason not much was found in the way of WMD by victorious U.S. forces in 2003.
In 2006, former Iraqi general Georges Sada, second in command of the Iraqi Air Force who served under Saddam Hussein before he defected, wrote a comprehensive book, “Saddam’s Secrets.”
Anticipating the invasion, his job was to supervise the removal of such weapons and erase as much evidence of Russian involvement as possible.
The Russian-assisted “cleanup” operation was entrusted to a combination of GRU and Spetsnaz troops and Russian military and civilian personnel in Iraq “under the command of two experienced ex-Soviet generals, Colonel-General Vladislav Achalov and Colonel-General Igor Maltsev, both retired and posing as civilian commercial consultants.”
Washington Times reporter Bill Gertz reported on Oct. 30, 2004, that Achalov and Maltsev had been photographed receiving medals from Iraqi Defense Minister Sultan Hashim Ahmad in a Baghdad building bombed by U.S. cruise missiles during the first U.S. air raids in early March 2003. Apparently they did their job well.
An article in the fall 2005 Middle East Quarterly reports that in an appearance on Israel’s Channel 2 on Dec. 23, 2002, Israel’s prime minister, Ariel Sharon, stated: “Chemical and biological weapons which Saddam is endeavoring to conceal have been moved from Iraq to Syria.” According … (READ ENTIRETY – Syria’s Chemical Weapons Came From Saddam’s Iraq; By IBD Editorials; Investors Business Daily; 07/19/2012 07:02 PM ET)
And this dinner meeting by a Top Democratic leader who had been very Vocal about the WMDs in Iraq and Led the Democratic Party on this Chant in 2004 and beyond [about WMD] not being there, sure could be about making sure Assad keeps those weapons covered up, huh? I just keep hearing from the Congressional leaders that they just want a Limited attack to send a message when Regime Change was the priority by Obama before. So something’s missing here regarding the Mission, its different now, why???
Kerry’s Cozy Past with Assad, ‘He’s a Very Generous Man’ – See more at:
Secretary of State John Kerry is calling for the overthrow and murder of his friend, Syria’s president Assad, claiming definitively that he used chemical weapons against his own people.
John Kerry was a frequent visitor of Assad’s over the last few years. Perhaps no one in U.S. politics knows him better than Kerry who was complimentary of Assad as short as 2 years ago when he referred to him as a “very generous man”.
Kerry (America) has not provided the world with any proof other than grainy videos allegedly taken during the event and a declassified report which is probably as reliable as Bush’s Iraq 45 minutes to nuclear launch reports. Assad has emphatically denied the accusations and no independent source has yet confirmed America’s claims.

John Kerry, who is expected to be nominated as secretary of state later this afternoon, has made frequent visits to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.
Assad is now under fire for mass murdering his own civilians, as he fights an internal war to keep his position of power. Even Obama has called for Assad to go.
In February 2009, Kerry led a delegation there to engage Syria. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told visiting US members of Congress on Saturday that the United States should ‘move away from a policy based on dictating decisions.’ Assad’s guests on Saturday included US Senator John Kerry, who headed the third delegation this week to call on the Syrian president’s door as Washington reviews its policies toward countries the previous administration regarded as hostile. Assad told his visitors that future relations should be based on a ‘proper understanding’ by Washington of regional issues and on common interests, SANA news agency reported,” AFP reported at the time.
AFP followed up with this report after the visit stating that Kerry believes “Syria is an essential player in bringing peace and stability to the region”:
“President Barack Obama’s administration considers Syria a key player in Washington’s efforts to revive the stalled Middle East peace process, US Senator John Kerry said in Damascus on Thursday. ‘Syria is an essential player in bringing peace and stability to the region,’ Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in a speech after meeting President Bashar al-Assad. ‘Both the United States and Syria have a very deep interest… in having a very frank exchange on any differences (and) agreements that we have about the possibilities of peace in this region,’ he said in the statement.”
Later, a couple months later, Kerry met again with Assad. “US Senator John Kerry met Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for a second time in as many months on Saturday for talks on ‘regional issues,’ the American embassy in Damascus said,” reported the AFP.
And in 2011, when Kerry again wanted to go to Syria, his visit was blocked–by the Obama administration. “The Obama administration and France reportedly nixed a visit by U.S. Sen. John Kerry to Syria. Kerry (D-Mass.), the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has cultivated a relationship with the Syrian regime otherwise treated as a pariah in the West in the hope of drawing it away from Iranian influence. The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that Kerry had planned a visit last month, but the governments of the United States and of French President Nicolas Sarkozy blocked the visit out of concern that it would signal ‘Western weakness’ as … (READ THE REST - Kerry a Frequent Visitor with Syrian Dictator Bashar Al-Assad; By DANIEL HALPER; Weekly Standard; 12/21/12 12:26 PM)

I found this link someone posted and what is said below makes sense. The use of the Dollar and keeping Saudi loyal to its use is KEY to this Whole Mess!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s becoming clear that Obama has been using the Muslim Brotherhood in a Leverage position to keep Saudi Arabia from just walking all over the USA and EU interests. By Obama siding with other nations and possibly rejecting the dollar as the Trade currency for OPEC energy resources and trying to keep the dollar relevant in this Mess, but Egypt overthrowing the Brotherhood has now moved the goal posts to Syria to try and establish a front for the Brotherhood.
Has Saudi Arabia been behind the Middle Eastern War on Terror to Use the West and primarily the USA to TAKE over the Middle East????
Syrian War is a Saudi Intelligence Operation
Has Saudi Arabia been behind the Middle Eastern War on Terror to Use the West and primarily the USA to TAKE over the Middle East????
Just moments ago, I saw Secretary of State John Kerry admit that the Syrian War is a Saudi operation. And, I watched him squirm in his chair as he said it, because he KNOWS that this is what he’s admitting. I could hardly believe what I was seeing. Even more, he was tacitly admitting Saudi involvement in other interventions.
For those of us who have more than half a brain, and at least SOME knowledge of the Middle East… We’ve noticed the fingerprints of Saudi intelligence all over what’s going on in Syria. In fact, I was planning to write about the involvement of the Saudi General Intelligence Services (or, Al Mukhabarat Al A’amah) today, when John Kerry went and poured gasoline on my fire. (And, I must say, John, that you really, REALLY looked uncomfortable making that admission.)
So, America will go to war at the behest of their Saudi paymasters. This makes me sick, and it should make you sick, too. This will launch us straight into World War III, and it will be the Saudis that pulled the trigger.
For those of you who keep preaching ‘Zionist Conspiracy’, you are complete and utter fools. Furthermore, you have dragged others down with you, and THAT is inexcusable. [Editor: This an excerpt that Tony Newbill posted in this email. There is a lot more including videos. Here is a sneak peak of the rest of which the first sentence is actually the last sentence in which the author castigates Antisemitics that accuse of a “Zionist Conspiracy”:
God will protect Israel – although many, many Israelis will die – but, God will not protect YOU.
For a biblical introduction to what is happening, go to the website that I created to deal with this subject:

Here is an alternative Bible Prophecy thought for you. The USA will remain the most powerful military on Earth and will enhance its military position by embracing nationalism to a greater degree. Turkey will supersede Iran as the Islamic regional power. Hamas will look to Turkey as an arbiter of destiny. Israel and Hamas will reconcile with Hamas becoming the dominant organization over Arabs that call themselves Palestinians. Turkey’s Islamic domination will lead Muslims away from Arab nationalism to a kind of Islamic Universalism leading to the reestablishment of the Caliphate under Turkish auspices.
These are just some of the predictions from Walid Shoebat that seems to be the prophetic theme of a new book “The Case for Islamophobia: America’s Final Warning.”
I am guessing the prophetic essay “Prophecy: What Lies Ahead” is a preview of what is in Walid’s book. The essay goes against the grain of recent Biblical prophecy pundits and theologians with an emphasis that the book series “Left Behind” has it wrong.
I am certain Walid’s predictions will be criticized by both geopolitists and Biblical oriented prophetic writers. Nevertheless, the case is well presented and the only real critic will be the progression of time.

Is violent Islamic extremism at war with us?
The Obama Administration’s public answer, featured in our new advertisement, was NO, they are NOT at war with us. Click here to watch our new advertisement, “At War?” and share with as many people as possible that Obama refuses to recognize that our enemies are at war with us!
Obama STILL hasn’t personally called the recent attack on our Libyan consulate a terrorist attack, but this should be no surprise, as our advertisement points out that he refused to call terrorist Carlos Bledsoe’s attack that killed Army Private Andy Long in Little Rock, Arkansas a terrorist attack. He called it a criminal act.
How can we defeat our enemies if we don’t recognize them for who they are and why they want to destroy us?
Now in the course of preparing to post the “At War?” message which I highly hope all participate I ran into a Website called Losing Our Sons: An American Tragedy. This is a title of movie protesting the Obama Administration and the U.S. Army not providing Purple Hearts for American soldiers that have died on American soil in the line of duty under Islamic Terrorism because of the Left Wing fear that it is politically incorrect that tragedies like what happened at the Ft Hood Massacre and a recruiting office in Arkansas were acts of war by Islamic terrorists.
This all goes to Obama’s refusal to admit America is at war with Radical Islam because God forbid that we non-Muslims of America (of whom which a majority call themselves Christians) say we are at war with a religion that openly hates Jews, Christians AND Americans.
Frankly friends that is just plain stupid. I pray American voters wake-up to just how much stupidity exists to not understand that Radical Muslims consider themselves at war with America.
Trailer to Losing Our Sons:
Losing Our Sons is a documentary and here is the descriptive summary:
A searing true story from America’s heartland, Losing Our Sons tells of two American families whose lives intersected through a shattering act of violence. Melvin Bledsoe, a small business owner in Memphis, watched with pride as his son Carlos went to Tennessee State University in Nashville to better his life through education. Daris Long, an ex-Marine, felt honored that his son, Andy, chose to follow in his footsteps by joining the military. But when Carlos Bledsoe murdered Andy Long in Little Rock, Arkansas, both fathers are forced to confront a new kind of American nightmare. As Melvin traced the trail that led Carlos from Nashville to Yemen and then to Little Rock, Daris confronted an American government that seems to be in denial about what happened to his son. This powerful documentary provides a moment of clarity for Americans who care about their families and their country’s future.

On June 1, 2009, Private William “Andy” Long was killed and Private Quinton Ezeagwula was wounded outside a Little Rock Army recruitment center in a terror attack. It was the first Al Qaeda murder on US soil since 9/11. Andy’s killer, Carlos Bledsoe, who changed his name to Abdulhakim Mohammed when he converted to Islam, admitted to targeting US soldiers as part of what he termed his jihad.
Andy and Quinton were denied the Purple Heart award by the U.S Army because of “insufficient evidence”. The Justice Department decided not to bring federal terrorism charges and classified Andy’s murder as a street crime.
We call upon the U.S. Army to recognize the sacrifice made by Andy Long and Quinton Ezeagwula and award them the Purple Heart.

Report: Obama Administration Removed 9/11 Threat Memo From Website After Libya Attack
October 1, 2012 9:03 am ET
A new report alleges that the State Department removed from its website a memo from Sept. 6 that advised U.S. personnel overseas that there was no credible threat of a terror attack to coincide with the anniversary of 9/11.
The memo was reportedly scrubbed from the website by the State Department’s Overseas Security Advisory Council sometime after the Libya consulate attack.
Chris Horner, author of “Liberal War On Transparency,” joined Steve Doocy on Fox and Friends to discuss the bombshell allegation. He said the move is not surprising, given what he calls the Obama administration’s lack of transparency over the last four years.
“They’re not into transparency beyond it being a talking point. By destroying records, generally, and I’ve shown there is a cyber bonfire going on in this administration, they’re covering up,” said Horner, who pointed out that the Obama administration has moved increasingly toward using private email instead of government accounts.

Oops this was supposed to be posted before Interview with David Icke.
This section looks at the influence of Albert Pike who is more noted as a Ku Klux Klan big dog and a former Confederate General. Pike evidently was influential in Freemason thought as to using war to bring about the New World Order and One World Government. There is also a bit of an examination of a Conspiracy Theory I am not sold on which is that the Jewish Rothschild family is accused of running the shadows of European political power. In this Jews will take over the world conspiracy the Rothschilds are big dogs in the Illuminati elite. In my book this Rothschild demonization is Antisemitism. Since I am a huge supporter of Israel I tend to dismiss any blame the Jews Conspiracies.
Here is a third section from the Global Watch 2011 on the Illuminati New World Order.
WORLD WAR III: PREDLUE TO A WORLD ORDER
Having consolidated their financial grip on most of the European nations by the middle of the 1900s, the international bankers under the control of the Illuminati worked feverishly to extend their sphere of influence to the ends of the earth in preparation for their final assault on the United States – a nation which, through its unique Constitution, remained free. In the decades that followed it became apparent that, in order to achieve their goal of world domination, they would have to instigate a series of world wars which would result in leveling of the old world in preparation for the construction of the New World Order.
The plot for a series of world wars in the twentieth century which would culminate in triggering a third world war, which would pull in the Islamic world, was devised in the nineteenth century by Albert Pike [SlantRight Editor: Brief bio of Pike including book Morals and Dogma]. Albert Pike, Sovereign Grand Commander of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry and the top Illuminist in America sent a letter to Guisseppe Mazzini (who at the time headed the international expansion of the Illuminati agenda) dated August 15, 1871.
The letter he wrote based on his divination experiences graphically outlined plans for three world wars that were seen as necessary to bring about the One World Order, and we can marvel at how accurately it has predicted events that have already taken place. This is not because the devil has powers of prophecy, but because his agents have undertaken to manipulate political events to closely follow his designs.
Pike stated that the first world war was to be fomented in order to destroy Czarist Russia- and to place that vast land under the direct control of Illuminati agents. Russia was then to be used as a ‘bogey man’ to further the aims of the Illuminati worldwide.
World War II was to be fomented through manipulation of the differences that existed between the German Nationalists and the Political Zionists. This was to result in an expansion of Russian influence and the establishment of a state of Israel in Palestine.
Two of the first wars have already taken place but there is a third world war which is yet to happen. Notice again Pikes reference to this third world war in This letter graphically outlined plans for three world wars that were seen as necessary to bring about the One World Order, and we can marvel at how accurately it has predicted events that have already taken place.
This is not because the devil has powers of prophecy, but because his agents have undertaken to manipulate political events to closely follow his designs. For a short time, this letter was on display in the British Museum Library in London, and it was copied by William Guy Carr, former Intelligence Officer in the Royal.
The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion. We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”
It is thus clear to see that the scheduling of the global elitist agenda is one in which Islam is a means to their end, not that Islam is their end. Despite the recent political surface level attempts to build bridges with the Islamic World, ultimately this is only to further extend and consolidate the Illuminati aims in the Middle East.
Noted author, Henry Makow also acknowledges that dynamics between the Illuminati and Islam, he states,
“Likewise, the Illuminati claim that the Second World War pitted the Fascists against the “political Zionists” so as to build up International Communism until it equaled in strength that of the United Christendom. According to Illuminati plans, the Third World War, which is to be fought between the political Zionists and the leaders of the Moslem world, will drain the international community. The purpose of the creation of Israel and the invasion of Iraq is to colonize the Muslim world and eradicate Islam. Islam is the biggest stumbling block to the Luciferian world religion, secular humanism.”
This is why Islam so vehemently despises freemasonry. The College of Islamic Jurisprudence, in its session convened at Makkah on 15th July 1978, examined the issue of Freemasonry, of those affiliated with it and the legal Islamic judgment on it, after adequate study of this dangerous organisation, inclusive of the College’s own published documents, books, and newspaper and journal articles. Its resulting decision was that it considered Freemasonry one of the most dangerously destructive organizations to Islam and to Muslims. In 1978 the College issued a fatwa clearly defining the official stance of Islam on Freemasonry.
Before embarking on its plan for World War III, the Illuminati would first have to end the Cold War, by subduing the Soviet Union, to render America the remaining Western superpower to be pitted against the Muslim World. Therefore, in a Time magazine cover story, published on Jan. 15, 1979, Brzezinski proclaimed Iran, Afghanistan, and the Indian subcontinent as an “arc of crisis” that posed a grave challenge to the West, though one that could also spell doom for the Soviet empire.
Essentially, in the Illuminati agenda, the Arc of Crisis was used as a pretext to ignite a band of Islamic fundamentalism across Central Asia, that could be first be used to bankrupt and destroy the Soviet Union, and then to recruit and engage a wave of Islamic fundamentalists to later be used as the spectre of terrorism with which to frighten the Western world. This strategy was revealed in the 1998 interview which Brzezinski, present foreign security advisor for the present US administration.
A woman by the name Svali, who was raised in the Illuminati cult, began writing a monthly column for survivors of Illuminati ritual abuse at Suite101.com. In December 2000, H.J. Springer, the editor of CentrExNews.com contacted Svali and conducted an extended 18-part interview with her by email. Svali made a number of critical comments.
“…there are some very powerful Jewish people in this group. For instance, the Rothschild family literally runs the financial empire in Europe (and indirectly the States), and are a well-known Jewish family. I have also known people whose parents were Jewish diamond merchants in the group, and at every level. But to rise to power in the Illuminati, a Jewish person at night would be forced to renounce their faith, and to give their first allegiance to Lucifer and the beliefs of the Illuminati.”
“…these leaders are heads in the financial world, OLD banking money. The Rothschild family in England, and in France, have ruling seats. A descendant of the Hapsburg dynasty has a generational seat. Descendants of the ruling families of England and France have a generational seat. The Rockefeller family in the US holds a seat…. The financiers, dating back to the bankers during the times of the Templar Knights who financed the early kings in Europe, created the Illuminati.”
“Most [Jews] would oppose this Illuminati scheme if they understood it. No wonder they think anti-Semitism is irrational and feel resentment. They don’t appreciate that many Jewish leaders secretly play a dominant role in the Illuminati plan.”
In the final issue of the “History of the Illuminati,” next month, we will seek to explore what the intentions of the Illuminati will be during the aftermath of World War III and why Israel is such an integral aspect of their strategy for total global world domination with the power of Islam broken in the Middle Eastern region.

Caroline Glick has written an essay that begins with the U.S. Foreign Policy debacle of doing nothing to keep Mao Zedong (Mao Tse Dung) from his Communist conquest of China. Mao wrested control of the Chinese government from the Nationalist government of Chiang Kai-Chek who ended up fleeing to Formosa (Today’s Taiwan).
Glick compares Mao’s usurpation of power in China to allowing the Muslim Brotherhood Islamist President Mohamed Morsi of winning a close Egyptian election. Glick reports that Egyptian military authorities and generals have been fired and replaced with Muslim Brotherhood loyalists. Also Morsi has not called the Egyptian Parliament back (disbanded originally by Egyptian military) which Glick believes gives Morsi the power to write Egypt’s new Constitution. If Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood write the next Egyptian Constitution, this will probably instill dictatorial powers on the new Egyptian President. Glick believes these dictatorial powers will be on a larger scale than the Obama abandoned and deposed Hosni Mubarak’s power.
Glick then properly goes on to criticize Obama’s Foreign Policy of joining Turkey in supporting the Islamist rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Now I realize there will be really no difference in Israel-hate and American-hate from which ever Syrian broker eventually stabilizes control of Syria; however deposing Assad would throw a monkey wrench into the Iranian-Syrian military alliance at least for awhile. That actually would be to America’s benefit. Anything that sets Iran back with only a little resource involvement by the US is a plus for America.
If the Sunni-Islamists succeed in taking over Syria the animosity with Iran would only be temporary in my opinion. The one thing that unites and smoothes over the hatred between Sunni and Shia Muslims (Iran is a Shia Theocracy) is a mutual hatred for Jews and Israel.
I suspect if Israel attacks Iranian nuke sites the Sunni regimes of Turkey (Islamist government) and now Egypt (Muslim Brotherhood Islamist government) might begin to offer at the very least clandestine military aid to Iranian client Hezbollah and the Sunni-Islamist terrorists Hamas. Undoubtedly Hamas would join a Hezbollah attack from the north by making a southern military front against Israel. The Saudi Royal Family hates and fears the militant Shia Iran regime in becoming a regional hegemon. I believe it is a pretty good guess that the Wahhabi Clerics in Saudi Arabia would fully support the elimination of Israel’s existence. If the Saudi Royal Family does not want its own civil war it would probably support yet another invasion of Israel while working clandestinely with the USA to help thwart Iranian influence.
Israel’s existence is in volatile times. A nuclear armed Iran would be suicide for Israel. Israel must take the risk of regional war to stop the formation of nuclear warheads that can be placed on Iranian missiles that can easily reach Israel. If a regional war breaks out Israel would have to be harsh on the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians just to survive. I sense a President like Obama would condemn Israel for such self-preservation harshness against Palestinian Authority Arabs and Hamas governed Gaza Arabs. An Obama-like President might even desire to punish Israel by not helping the Jewish State to survive.
YOU DO KNOW what would happen to Jews in a defeated Israel, right? There would be a SECOND Holocaust that would either rival the Hitler-Nazi Holocaust or even exceed those dimensions of butchery.
American voters need to vote for a President that is Pro-Israel and willing to stand with Israel even if doing so is not Politically Correct to the rest of the Western World. Currently that man is GOP Nominee Mitt Romney. Standing with Israel will bring the blessings of God Almighty for blessing God’s Chosen People.
I am not Jewish; nonetheless I and other Biblical Christians support Israel because the Jewish State’s existence is prophetic. Eventually Jesus Himself will Return and the Jews will comprehend He is their Messiah as much as He is the Christian Messiah (i.e. the Christ) of Christian Believers looking for the fulfillment of God’s plans for His Creation. Salvation is of the Jews.
Yup, you pegged me: I am a Christian Zionist (SA Jewish Virtual Library). The kind of person Leftists, Muslims and erstwhile so-called Progressive Christians dislike immensely. Unfortunately many Liberal and Observant Jews distrust the motivation of Christian Zionists.
[SlantRight Editor Side Note: The distrust is in the Christian Zionist motivation to be a friend of Israel. Jews are not real hip to Christian proselytizing because of the unscriptural and horrid treatment Jews received at the hands of Christians taught to hate Jews as Christ-killers. The accusation was unfair in Christian history and it is unfair now.
For one thing polytheistic Romans were goaded into Crucifying Christ at the behest of power-station minded Jewish leadership (viz. the Sanhedrin monopolized by Pharisees but dominated by Greek mindset Sadducees).]
Well that is my two-cents. The analysis of Israel’s predicament and U.S. Foreign Policy is much more eloquently provided by Caroline Glick. You should READ IT.
Hmm … One really doesn’t read anything from the MSM relating to Iraq unless there is a story that arbitrarily insults the United States of America. You know though – I believe Iraq is still a nation that quite likely will split three ways when the last combat regiment leaves the region carved into a nation by the British (SA HERE) casting favors to tribal Arab allies during WWI.
In an instant Institute for the Study of War (ISW) email there is a news briefing about what is happening in Iraq as the American coalition of the willing downsizes its presence. Here a clue: The Syrian Civil War also includes Syrians other than Radical Muslim Sunnis that desire freedom from Shia Alawite President Bashar al-Assad.

Danny Jeffrey sent me the Reuters link in which the theme was America is ready for a military strike on Iran because of the WMD potential of uranium enrichment that is ongoing.
Now Danny has written an awesome essay that shines a light on President Barack Hussein Obama’s choices and agenda toward a military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
Just to get you started in the thinking realm. Does anyone really think Obama had any intention of using the military option on Iran after fairly definitive proof is unfolding of Iran’s agenda to make nuclear warheads? Danny suggests that Obama did not have a military intention in his bones; however it is also becoming clearer that Western nations and a few Arab nations are leery of a nuclear armed Iran and might look the other way if Israel sends their own attack force against Iranian nuclear facilities.
If Obama condemned such an action by Israel when proof is unfolding of Iran’s nefarious nuke agenda prior to Election Day 2012, there probably would political repercussions for Obama to face. Or perhaps Obama throws Israel under the bus after Israel takes an existential military move against Iran which undoubted will be followed by Hezbollah and Hamas and even maybe the Palestinian Authority (PA) attacking Israel in concert with an Iranian counter-attack.
Even after the anti-Israel propaganda from American-Leftists and Pro-Palestinian apologists there is still a lot of love for Israel in this nation. If Obama uses his butt to sit on his hands as a massive counter-attack takes place, Obama will lose reelection handily.
Obama is no political dummy, but he is politically evil in his transformation agenda for America. I think Obama will attempt to use a stall tactic learned from Iran to publicly get Iran to join further nuclear negotiations with a public rebuke of or else in a military response. If Iran is geopolitically savvy enough to take the Obama stall bait, it will allow Obama to push Israel further under the bus. However, if Prime Minister Netanyahu is geopolitically savvy enough he will abandon any Obama stall nuke negotiations with Iran and take the opportunity to force Obama to support Israel for political survival in the White House.
Now this is a good point for me to enlist you into Danny Jeffrey’s thoughts on a military strike on Iran and Obama’s agenda in such a strike. But before you go there read Jeffrey’s blog post “NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN…STILL HAUNTING THE HOPEFUL”. That post is about public wishful thinking versus preparation for the political stark reality. Then read Jeffrey’s “THE STRIKE ON IRAN AND ITS REPERCUSSIONS”.
Reuters produced this headline on May 17: “Plans to strike Iran “ready,” says U.S. Israel envoy”.
For me this was great news that Obama might actually do something other than totally selling out Israel to a Radical Islamic Theocratic nation like Iran. Then I read this in the short news story:
The United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany have been using sanctions and negotiations to try to persuade Iran to curb its uranium enrichment, which can produce fuel for reactors, medical isotopes, and, at higher levels of purification, fissile material for warheads.
The problem I have with that statement is that both Russia and China have been responsible for technological, military and/or nuke aid to Iran for some time now. Due to Russian-Chinese commitments to Iran I question any commitment by Russia and China to join the USA, UK, France and Germany to twist Iranian thumbs on Nuke weapons.

It is extremely politically incorrect to say we are at war with Islam. Things get a bit stickier in attempting to define the “we” that is at war with Islam. Is the “we” Western Culture? If the “we” is Western Culture, this would include Europe (Eastern and Western), Australia, North America and South America.
The part of Europe dominated by the European Union would go into apoplectic spasms at the suggestion that the EU was at war with Islam. Islam has made such enormous inroads into European culture that the doctrine of multicultural diversity makes it anathema to criticize Islam as inimical to a Christian influenced European culture.
As an amateur analyst (meaning more guessing than data) it appears Islam is not yet a multicultural diversity factor in most of Latin America (Mexico & Central America of North America and Central America & South America). Of the miniscule Muslims in Latin America there is significant Radical Islamic influence occurring in Latin America. The Radical Islamic influence is from overt Islamic terrorists (Like Hezbollah) or supporters of Islamic terrorism (Like Wahhabi Saudis, Muslim Brotherhood and Iran). The Islamic terrorist connection appears to be a hook-up with Drug Cartels. It is a good guess that Drug Cartels are clients of Radical Islamists that produce the poppy plants that are then turned into opiates (e.g. heroine) which the Drug Cartels sell to the North American addicts with money. The Islamic Terrorist/Drug Cartel symbiotic relationship is based on messing up America even if the reasons might be diverse.
Australia has shared Europe’s Multiculturalism; however Australia is experiencing a bit of an awakening toward Islam’s threat to Western Culture and even big dog politicians are hollering from the mountain tops about the dark side of Islam.
Then there is English speaking North America – USA and Canada.
Canada is still inflicted with Multicultural Diversity when it comes to Islam. A negative publication concerning Islam or a negative radio/TV piece on Islam will land you in jail, a fine or a civil suit for defaming a religion.
There are many people and organizations in America striving to educate Americans about the dark side of Islam. Brigitte Gabriel’s ACT for America is my favorite and the work of Pamela Gellar of Atlas Shrugs and American Freedom Defense Initiative/Stop Islamization of America (AFDI/SIOA) is excellent as well.
Islamic organizations are active in America to bring Islam to America. In this nation in which religious freedom is considered a preeminent freedom, it might sound odd that I raise the flag that there is an Islamic threat. After all Christianity is an evangelistic religion determined to follow the Great Commission of our Lord and Savior to share the Good News of Redemption by the Blood of Christ. The problem with Islam is that it is not merely a religion that is what Christians would call an evangelistic religion. Rather Islam is as much a socio-political ideology as it is a theo-religious faith. Islamic holy writings desire not only an inner struggle to follow the path of submission to Allah, but also an outer struggle to politically bring the Islamic religion to non-Muslims. Don’t be deceived by such attributions as there is no compulsion of religion in Islam.
There is no compulsion in Islam if the Sharia rules are complied with. Let us take a Christian nation or people in the cross hairs of an imperialistic conquest minded Muslim army. The socio-political instruments Islam developed a system to degrade non-Muslims to sweeten the deal of convert, dhimmi livelihood or death. Conquest was relatively quick by Muslim conquering armies but conversion to Islam was not. Islamic Supremacism, with the usage of humiliation of the non-Muslim, brought converts to Islam over the centuries to the point that Christians ended up as the minority. Additionally, the pockets of Christians allowed to survive became accustomed to the second class citizenship of a dhimmi; hence Christian communities in the lands conquered by Muslims actually developed the brainwashed concept that their humiliation and the jizya tax brought protection from persecution.
If you exclude what is left of Communist nations like, China, N. Korea and Vietnam; the primary persecutors of Christians globally are Muslims. This is where my ire begins to stir! The West is so invested in political correctness that if a Muslim or an Islamic belief is condemned, the Leftists and Muslim apologists come crawling out of the woodwork to cry victim insinuating that prejudicial hate-speech is being leveled. AND YET when Christians in Muslim nations (Middle East and Africa primarily but else ware as well) are beaten, the women raped, the children stolen, a convert to Christianity faces death for apostasy, Christians in general are murdered and sometimes slaughtered for just being Christian and on and on; then where is the moral outrage?
No European nations are standing up with threatening messages to Muslim nations to do something about persecution of Christians. Frankly I am not even hearing preachers, priests, Bishops, Cardinals or the Pope take a stand and have the guts to protest the heinous treatment of Christians in Muslim lands. THIS SILENCE IS REPREHENSIBLE!
Are “we” at war with Islam? Doggone it; we are at war with Islam because Islam is at war with the West. The problem is the West is too comfortable to admit we are at war with Islam. Western religious wars of yesteryear have made the admission that a theo-political religion like Islam would engage with the superior technology of the West causing the strife and the return to national pride that many Western nations have lost. The loss of cultural pride is particularly the case of Europe. The loss of cultural pride is a symptom of multicultural diversity that accepts the uniqueness of diverse foreign cultures rather than honoring the foreign culture and expects assimilation into the host culture.
If the West does not wake up soon, the same treatment Christians receive in Muslim lands will be the identical treatment in Western lands for Christians, Secularists and atheists alike.
Raymond Ibrahim inspired my thoughts on Islam and the West. A couple of days ago he posted an essay that examines the persecution of Christians by Muslims for just the month of October 2011. If you are a person that can feel righteous indignation beyond political correctness then you should read what Muslims have done to Christians in October alone.
