CHRISTIANS ALERT: Leftist Intrusion into Faith


John R. Houk

© October 11, 2018

 

There are critics within Christianity who demonize Christian Believers who support the inerrancy of the Word of God. I have never understood how a person who calls himself Christian can stir themselves to huge emotions of anger over what the Bible says on the Holy Spirit, speaking in Tongues (aka glossolalia), healing, prophecy, prosperity, homosexuality, and more.

 

I can understand Christians who criticize misuse of the Word of God to fake the Biblically described acts of the Almighty through the Name of Jesus. Such misuse does occur for some form of self-aggrandizement. The promotion of self rather than Jesus deserves criticism. Criticizing the Word of God because it does not your diluted morality or political agenda frankly borders on wickedness.

 

This post is about purported Christians that justify acts that God condemns as sin and exalting human doctrines (such as Secular Humanism and Marxist derivatives [Communism is anti-God]) as superior to the God-infused Word of God.

 

Of interest relating to God-infused Word of God:

Rick Renner explains Holy Spirit inspiration for our times, theopneustos. God’s breath released His Word which contained His creative and restorative power, His fragrance and it brought the music of heaven to man.

 

The point: Human agents should not – must not – discount Words infused by God Almighty.

 

Discounting God’s Word is EXACTLY what Leftist purported Christians are doing when they tell you portions of the Bible are irrelevant today because modern culture renders God’s Word as antiquated and archaic.

 

Geri Ungurean addresses this Left Wing thinking  in an important post ALL Christians should be made aware of: “Hijacking Evangelicalism: George Soros Funding Apostate Church Movements”.

Hijacking Evangelicalism: George Soros Funding Apostate Church Movements

 

By Geri Ungurean

OCTOBER 8, 2018

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

 

Red Letter Bible

 

It seems to me that myriad apostate church movements have come over America like a huge tsunami wave in the past few years.  I asked myself  “Could this have just happened spontaneously?”

 

Let’s look at just some of these movements:

 

  • Emergent church

 

  • NAR (New Apostolic Reformation)

 

  • Social Justice gospel

 

  • Chrislam

 

  • Red Letter Church Movement

 

I have researched on the internet for so many years for my articles.  There had to be a catalyst for the springing up of so many “churches” teaching doctrines of devils.

 

I realize that the Word of God warns of a Great Falling Away:

 

“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you,  not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,  who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God”  (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4)   (emphasis mine [i.e. Ungurean]).

 

Trouble in my spirit

 

Knowing that the prophetic Word of God is always fulfilled to the letter; I still searched for a common thread throughout this great apostasy.  And the Lord allowed me to find it.

 

George Soros

 

Through the years, I have written extensively about this wicked man. He uses his money and influence across the globe to push his Marxist/Socialist ideologies AKA “Progressivism.” He interferes geopolitically, always keeping in his warped mind, the goal – the One World Government and One World Religion.

 

Soros, along with his cronies in the Illuminati, will stop at nothing to achieve their goals.  And we know that these goals will come to fruition. We just don’t know when.

 

I am convinced that this man has many devils residing in him.

 

Could Soros be funding the so-called “Christian Left”?  If ever there was an oxymoron, “Christian Left” would have to top that list.

 

The Left have nothing to do with Biblical Christianity.

 

The many Leftist NGO’s owned and run by George Soros:

 

Founded or helped to found:

 

  • Open Societies Foundations  (open borders)

 

  • Central European University

 

  • Institute for New Economic Thinking   (Marxism)

 

  • Clinton Foundation

 

Soros Supporting:

 

  • Black Lives Matter

 

  • Media Matters for America

 

  • Planned Parenthood Action Fund

 

  • American Civil Liberties Union

 

  • Amnesty International

 

  • National Democratic Voting Rights Trust

 

  • America Votes

 

  • Immigrant Voters Win PAC

 

  • Every Voice

 

  • Occupy Movement

 

As you will read in this article, we can now safely add other movements to Soros’ Progressive resume.  But this is clearly the first time Soros has spearheaded “religious movements”

 

  • Red Letter Christians

 

  • Social Justice gospel

 

  • Emergent church

 

I believe that a common saying would be most appropriate  here:

 

“If you cannot beat them then join them.” And in the case of this demon filled man, he joined only to corrupt true Christianity.

 

From blottingoutgod.com – The following article was written during the Obama regime.

 

When someone believes social justice is more of a biblical priority than social issues, chances are their faith is based on the politics of man rather than the inspiration of God’s Word. Founded by Jim Wallis and Tony Campolo, Red Letter Christians are one such group of liberal progressives whose purpose is to counter the influences of the conservative Christian movement and traditional evangelicals.

 

Another founder, Catholic writer Richard Rohr, believes we need to earn our way to heaven. Still another, homosexual advocate Brian MacLaren [sic], refutes the inerrancy of Scriptures. Trying to appear apolitical, these opportunistic ideologues criticize Republicans and conservative Christians while pushing their own political agendas.

 

According to apologist, Richard Haas;

 

Another major problem with the Red Letter Christian movement is its cherry picking approach to the use of Scripture. This group will concentrate on certain parts of the Bible that promote their agenda while excluding other parts of the Bible that either contradict or do not fit the Red Letter Christians agenda… Groups like the Red Letter Christians while seeming tolerable and peaceful in their purpose are actually undermining and dishonoring Christ and His kingdom.

 

The following is an excerpt from the book, ERADICATE: BLOTTING OUT GOD IN AMERICA:

 

Every word in the Bible is written exactly as God wants it to be. Our faith in the integrity of Scripture begins with permanence:

 

The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever (Isaiah 40:8).

 

Bible publishers probably had good intentions when they highlighted the teachings of Jesus by printing them in red letters, but this has helped some emergent church leaders find another way to cast doubt on the entire Bible. Jesus Christ is the Truth and He is the Word – the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. Jesus came to fulfill the law, the Old Testament. Every letter the apostle Paul wrote points to the perfect person of Jesus Christ. The Old Testament, the Gospels, and the New Testament are all in complete agreement and harmony.

 

Red Letter Christians teach that the sayings of Jesus are somehow more holy, sacred, or inspired than the rest of Scripture, but we know the whole counsel of God is perfect.

 

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teach­ing, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).

 

One obvious agenda for this false teaching is to justify homosexual­ity [and minimize abortion].

 

These popular evangelical authors pit God and the apostle Paul against Jesus by telling their followers Jesus didn’t specifically address homosexuality. By this they imply Jesus must approve of that which He did not address directly. This is ludicrous and would also lead to the false conclusion that Jesus also approves of cannibalism, rape, or vampires since He didn’t specifically mention them. This is their logic.

 

These leaders argue that since Jesus taught about loving “the least of these,” how can we call someone that Christ commands us to love, sinful? Jim Wallis notes that the early church shared everything when he said,

 

“In those red letters, Jesus calls us away from the consumerist values that dominate contemporary American consciousness.”

 

Wal­lis and Campolo have gained cult-like followings by speaking against the Christian establishment and against Republicans as they make the rounds on the college circuit. They can disagree with parts of the Bible if they’d like, but what amazes me is that people fall for it.

 

For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished (Matthew 5:18).

 

Red Letter Christians advocate unrestricted big government, often equating the welfare state with the Kingdom of God.

 

Jan Markel of Olive Tree Views believes they are practicing a form of Neo-Marxism. Markel points out these leaders promote tolerance and mercy while claiming conservative evangelicals spend too much time worrying about abortion and homosexuality. Markell stated:

 

“Red-letter Christians champion ‘social justice’, the cause of illegal immigrants, environmentalism, high taxes, discrimina­tion issues, socialized medicine, and getting rid of the death penalty. …This crowd loves to spend other people’s money. They put down conservative Christianity when, in fact, it is conservative Christians who are first to step up to the plate whenever there is a disaster at home or abroad!”

 

Red Letter Christians profess to hate religion and love Jesus. Though there is not a clear statement of faith on their website, they do list the Apostle’s Creed and give a charge to follow the words of Jesus (not the entire Bible). Their list of contributors and recommended authors is a roll call of the progressive evangelical hall of shame.

 

When someone’s theology seems to be driven by a desire to justify and promote a political agenda or a sinful lifestyle rather than honestly interpret what Scripture teaches, that’s called handling the Word of God deceitfully. We must confront that which comes against truth.

 

We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5 ESV).

 

In June of 2010, Reverend Jim Wallis was asked if he believed abor­tion and homosexuality were sins. Christian radio station General Manager, Mike Le May, got the answer loud and clear: Wallis shouted at him, called him a “right-wing Kool-Aid drinking Glen Beck follower” and hung up the phone. I documented the divisive controversy that led to this exchange in my book, ERADICATE.

 

On Monday, Wallis – being faithful to the Democratic Party platform – openly admitted to supporting same-sex marriage. Not surprisingly, a spokesperson for Wallis’ Sojourners magazine could not say whether or not Wallis believes homosexuality is a sin.

 

Appointed by President Obama to his White House faith council, some say Wallis is a progressive evangelical because his primary support is from leftists.

 

In 2011, it was revealed by investigative journalists that Wallis’ Sojourners magazine received hundreds of thousands of dollars from radical socialist George Soros. Why would an anti-American financier like George Soros give large grants to Sojourn­ers?   (emphasis mine)

 

Jim Wallis first denied the Soros connection saying, “No, we don’t receive money from George Soros… Our money comes from Christians who support us and who read Sojourners.”

 

Soros is a corrupt billionaire from Hungary aiming to destroy America’s Christian ideals and freedoms that made us a great nation. His hatred for America fuels the financing (over $52 million) of left-wing media outlets and groups including those promoting abor­tion, atheism, homosexual activism, socialism, and government expansion. It’s no wonder Jim Wallis tried to hide the truth.

 

George Soros is working to destroy America’s system of capitalism and this connection between Wallis and Soros should not be ignored.  (emphasis added).

 

On their website, Sojourners quotes people like Gandhi, the Dalai Lama, new age leader Marianne Williamson and empha­sizes social justice, environmental activism, diversity, and immigra­tion.

 

Wallis seems to look at the Bible in light of the world around him rather than looking at the world in light of God’s Word. From his White House platform, he attacks Republicans while calling himself a “nonpartisan evangelical minister,” and is very popular among liberals who routinely vilify Christians for their involvement in political issues.

 

According to Wallis:

 

“As more Christians become influenced by liberation theology, finding themselves increasingly rejecting the values of institu­tions of capitalism, they will also be drawn to the Marxist analy­sis and praxis that is so central to the social justice movement.”

 

Early in his career, Wallis founded an anti-capitalist magazine called the Post-American which identified wealth redistribution and government-managed economies as the keys to achieving social justice. He changed the name to Sojourners in the early 1970s. During his college years at Michigan State, Wallis joined the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), a radical organization that aspired to overthrow America’s institutions. Wallis remains opposed to the free market system in America.

 

Over the years, Jim Wallis has been pro-Vietcong and actually celebrated America’s defeat in Vietnam, stating:

 

“I don’t know how else to express the quiet emotion that rushed through me when the news reports showed that the United States had finally been defeated in Vietnam”

 

In 1979, the journal Mission Tracks pub­lished an interview with Wallis, in which he expressed his hope that “more Christians will come to view the world through Marxist eyes.”

 

Wal­lis was listed as one of three “Religion and Socialism Commission co-chairs” in a 1982 Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) newsletter. He promotes equally distributed wealth, but this type of socialism has never been able to create the abundance needed to lift the poor out of poverty. Most importantly, his social justice politics cast aside the Great Commission of Christ – to make disciples of all nations – and can be confusing to people.

 

In 2005, Wallis was hired by Senate Democrats to help turn religious voters into Democrats in part by sprinkling references to God and faith into their speeches to dupe people into thinking they found religion.

 

The next year, in a 2006 radio broadcast, an interviewer asked: “Are you then calling for the redistribution of wealth in society?” Wallis replied, “Absolutely, without any hesitation. That’s what the gospel is all about.” Whose gospel?

 

According to 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, the true Gospel is about faith in Jesus Christ for eter­nal salvation:

 

Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, …For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures…

 

Author, editor-in-chief of World Magazine, and Provost of The King’s College, Marvin Olasky has debated Jim Wallis. Olasky writes:

 

“Biblically, justice – tied to righteousness – is what promotes faith in God, not faith in government… Learn about the biggest institutional hindrance to economic advancement for the poor: the government’s monopoly control of taxpayer funds committed to education and welfare.”

 

In a 2008 interview with Christianity Today, Wallis promised to “work very hard to make abortion reduction a central Democratic Party plank” for the first time. It’s been seven years since Wallis made that promise and over 1.2 mil­lion babies continue to be aborted every year. He claims “poverty and global inequality” are today’s fundamental moral issues.

 

The glaring hypocrisy of religious liberal and social activist Jim Wallis has again been exposed, and we should pray for those confused or deceived by this very “different gospel” the Christian Left promotes. source

 

Brethren, I am not blaming Soros for the leaders of the Apostate movements. I am simply showing the reader that once again we can “follow the money.”

 

I don’t believe that Soros is Antichrist, but he certainly is an evil force in this world who is a foreshadowing of the Wicked.  Each day when this man awakes – he is consumed with nefarious plans for Globalism.

 

The election of Donald Trump as our president in 2016 was a set back and a huge disappointment to Soros and his Illuminati cronies.   They were certain that they would see another Clinton in the White House.

 

Well, our God had other plans.   But don’t forget that for the world stage to be set for the appearance of AC – Globalism will be a reality.

 

But not today.

 

How Can I Be Saved?

 

Shalom b’Yeshua

 

MARANATHA!

Intro to Fatouros Post on Mass Acceptance of Globalist Totalitarianism


Intro by John R. Houk

Posted October 10, 2018

 

Dee Fatouros is a blogger I’ve always enjoyed following. I don’t know if Dee is a pseudonym, male or female. I read other blogs speak of the person as a female and a good friend. Yet if you Google the name “Dee Fatouros,” you find profile info or a photo. The person if a gal, really is protective of her anonymity. Yet her posts are quite prolific within the blogosphere. These days I find her posts primarily at The New Realistic Observer blog. (“New” because there was a “Realistic Observer” which last time I visited was having technical issues probably the result of some kind of hack. Just guessing. A recent visit today shows the old blog has been turned into an archive site.)

 

Some recent posts by Dee gives clues to her anonymity. The post “We are officially on the highway to Hell. Is there an off-ramp?” is very clear why all people who mistrust the government should all do something to protect their privacy which may lead many dissenters both Conservative and Liberal may choose anonymity.

 

The article Dee posts is by Brandon Smith and his post was originally found at AltMarket.com as “How Globalists Plan To Use Technology And Poverty To Enslave The Masses”. The post is about tyranny via technology and managed economics. Specifically the tyranny is a totalitarian government of which its citizens are fooled en masse to actually support. Here is a brief quote:

 

There are two tools that make this outcome possible: The first is controlled economic decline, the second is the integration of a technological gulag into every aspect of public life.

 

Interestingly as I was posting this, I ran into the exact same post entitled, “HOW GLOBALISTS PLAN TO USE TECHNOLOGY & POVERTY TO ENSLAVE THE MASSES” posted at the blog Sovereign Nations.

 

You may have read this post because Dee Fatouros promotes her posts quote effectively via social media (Hey, I do that too). As a result, my usual promotion efforts are going to be limited, so if this post engages the wonder of the old grey matter – do some of your own sharing.

The Key

 

The following article may not be as surreal as it seems. The censorship via the social media tech giants has become obvious.


Unfortunately, that is only the beginning. We are well on the road toward a dystopian society in which the “average” person will be regarded as a robot to be programed into endless servitude “for the greater good”.


Can the dynamics discussed in the following article be stopped?

How Globalists Plan To Use Technology And Poverty To Enslave The Masses
by Brandon Smith

 

Tyranny is often seen as a sudden and inexplicable development in a society; the product of a singular despot that rockets to power for a limited window of time due to public fear or stupidity. This is one of the great lies of the modern era.

The truth is that for at least the past century almost every historically despised “tyrant” was merely a puppet of a larger managerial cabal, and the construction of each totalitarian state was accomplished slowly and quietly over the course of decades by those same financial elitists. From the Bolsheviks, to Hitler and the Third Reich, to Mao Zedong, to most tin-pot dictators across the Middle East and Africa, there has always been an organized group of money men and think tanks fueling the careers of the worst politicians and military juntas of the epoch.

The rise of a tyrannical system takes extensive time, planning and staging. Human beings do not simply jump right into the arms of a dystopian nightmare regime impulsively at a moment’s notice. We have been told by popular media that this is how it works; that during hard economic or social conditions men with charismatic personalities and evil intentions suddenly rise to the surface and take power by promising a better world in exchange for public fealty. But where did those economic and social crises come from to begin with? Were they a natural consequence of the era, or were they deliberately engineered?

The reality is that people must be psychologically conditioned to trade freedom for the illusion of safety. Sometimes this takes generations. Every attempt at a totalitarian framework inevitably elicits a rebellion. Therefore, the most successful tyranny would be one that the public DEMANDS. They have to think it is their idea, otherwise they will eventually fight it.

Globalist financiers and power addicts need something more than mere military might or bureaucratic force to obtain their ideal slave society. They need 4th Generation warfare tactics. They need to con the masses into accepting their own servitude.

There are two tools that make this outcome possible: The first is controlled economic decline, the second is the integration of a technological gulag into every aspect of public life.

Economic Weapons Of Mass Distraction

It is no coincidence that dictatorial governments gain prominence as the global economy suffers; it is extremely difficult for people to remain vigilant to tyranny when they are completely distracted by their own survival. This is why my focus as an analyst has always been primarily on economics and solutions to fiscal disaster; it all begins and ends with the economy. If the public can be prepped to develop their own alternative economic systems before a crisis occurs, then they will be less distracted by the chaos and more apt to notice when the globalists offer tyranny as a fix-all.

Without alternative markets at the local level there is no redundancy, no protection from a crash. With most people dependent on the existing system for their livelihoods, the economy becomes a very useful weapon for the globalists.

Holding the economy hostage creates numerous advantages. Through deflationary pressure wages can be kept low while higher paying jobs disappear. Manufacturing can be phased out or outsourced overseas, as in the U.S. Small business ownership becomes difficult as taxes generally rise while financial conditions decline.

Through inflationary or stagflationary pressures, low wages and the inadequate job market are combined with exploding prices. This makes survival for many people untenable without government aid.

In this environment, the working public becomes reliant on the service sector, which provides no useful skill sets. Soon, you have entire generations of people with no production abilities whatsoever. They become drones working in meaningless office and retail jobs squandering away their days knowing that they are accomplishing nothing beyond a meager paycheck.

The lack of a greater purpose or mission in life and the nagging realization that the average person has no productive capacity creates a palpable atmosphere of desperation. They do not own their own work, and they have nothing much to show for their labor; nothing to point at and say, “I built that.” The public gets to the point that they may even welcome an economic collapse simply to escape the drudgery.

This is where movements to support totalitarianism come from — the subset of citizens that are fed up with fighting against the economy and have no sense of independence. These people do not know how to solve their own problems, they are always looking for someone else to do it for them. The globalists are happy to suggest their own predetermined solutions to the public once the financial structure hits a point of maximum pain.

However, after the economy is repaired in exchange for the submission of the citizenry, people might still decide one day that the trade was unfair. Thus, a deterrent is needed to keep them in line.

The Technological Fish Tank

It is important to understand that there is no major country in the western OR eastern world that is not building a digital control grid, and this helps to support my position that eastern nations are just as subservient to globalist demands as western nations. All the geopolitical drama surrounding events like the trade war, the Syrian war or various elections, etc.; none of this matters in the end. When determining if the strings of a particular government are being pulled by the globalist cabal, all you have to do is look at how quickly they are implementing oppressive systems that serve globalist interests.

For example, India’s government has been hitting the news feeds lately as their supreme court recently ruled that the controversial Aadhaar biometric program is legal. In a nation of 1.3 billion people, around 1 billion have already been biometrically profiled in a national database. This data can include fingerprints, iris scans and face scans.

I have heard it argued that India is a rather odd place to experiment with such a database, considering 60% of the population is under the poverty line and most people barely have basic amenities. But I would point out that this is why it is a PERFECT place for the globalists to start cataloging the world population on larger scale.

Again, financial desperation and a lack of productions skills tends to produce subservience. Hundreds of millions of poverty stricken people in India’s sprawling urban sewers are voluntarily giving up their biometric data in exchange for government aid programs.

For the people not anchored down by the poor economy India has instituted other measures, including requiring anyone accessing government services, opening a bank account or signing up for a mobile phone service also give up their biometrics to the government. In nations not yet impoverished at India’s level, more subversive measures have been instituted for surveillance of the population. Data is simply taken rather than traded.

In Russia, Vladimir Putin has put the Yarovaya laws he signed in 2016 into effect. All digital data from phone conversations to emails is now recorded and stored by telecoms for government access for a minimum of six months, this includes Facebook and Twitter posts. The 2014 bloggers law also requires any blogger with over 3,000 followers be put on government file and they cannot remain anonymous. Any business operating a public Wi-Fi network is required by law to identify users by ID, which is also stored for at least six months.

Russia’s FISA-style surveillance grid is vast, yet, many people in the liberty movement seem to ignore this reality with misplaced Putin-worship. As I have noted in numerous articles, Russia is heavily influenced by international financiers.

Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan are the largest investment banks in the country. Their central bank works closely with the IMF and the BIS. The Kremlin has in the past called for a global currency controlled by the IMF. And Putin even admits in his own biography First Person that he has been friends with New World Order salesman Henry Kissinger since before he became president of Russia. In a latest show of how globalist Russia really is, the Russian Foreign Minister recently criticized the U.S. in a speech to the U.N. general assembly over its “attacks” on the “international order,” including undermining the World Trade Organization and global climate change agreements.

With the above in mind, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Russia is playing right along with globalist efforts to identify and track every single living person. It should also come as no surprise that Donald Trump, surrounded by globalists within his own cabinet, is continuing and expanding FISA surveillance under his administration.

At the beginning of 2018 Trump signed a bill renewing the National Security Agency’s warrantless FISA mass surveillance of the American population. Leading Democrats happily supported the action. Despite all of Trump’s rhetoric against FISA recently, it was Trump that made FISA’s continuation possible.

Major social media companies are cooperating wholeheartedly with mass surveillance efforts as they share personal data with governments around the world regularly. Facebook alone saw an increase in government requests for data of over 33% in 2017, and the nature of most of this data sharing is not open to public scrutiny.

This is one reason why I’m rather bewildered by the recent conservative fury over social media discrimination – it’s as if personal liberty activists are being tricked with reverse psychology to DEMAND unhindered participation in media sites that spy on them. Why does anyone still want to sign up for these websites?

But where is this all going? How does the combination of poverty and digital surveillance translate to tyranny? I believe China’s “social credit” program is the answer. The system is based on the idea of “maintaining trust”, but whose trust? Well, the government’s trust, of course. Trust is measured using a social credit score that is tracked over a citizen’s life. Punished behaviors include anything from smoking in a no smoking area to publishing internet content that the powers-that-be disapprove of.

China is representative of the end game for the globalist ideal for civilization. With mass economic struggle leading to dependency on government welfare programs and employment opportunities, few citizens can afford to be “blacklisted.” China’s social credit system creates an environment in which any and every action on the part of citizens is tracked and then “rated” for acceptance or consequence. This includes how people express attitudes toward the government itself. Obviously, this is the ultimate control mechanism, very similar to the Cheka established by Lenin and Stalin in Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution, but on a massive digital scale.

This is why mass surveillance is evil, regardless of whether someone is breaking the laws or not. It gives government the power to dictate and mold behavior by inspiring self-censorship rather than holding people directly at gun point. It is tyranny enforced in a less obvious way; a prison in which the prisoners maintain the locks and the chains and the bars. Individuals do not dare do anything outside of collective norms for fear that it could be interpreted as socially negative. Punishment might include loss of access to the economy itself, and when most people are living from paycheck to paycheck, this could mean death.

How Globalists Plan To Use Technology And Poverty To Enslave The Masses -Brandon Smith

 

About The New Realistic Observer

 

We are being lied to on every front, both foreign and domestic. 

 

“We can ignore reality, but we cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.” Ayn Rand

 

While it is true that our “leaders” have been lying to us for decades, the current administration has elevated it to Orwellian proportions. The doublethink, news speak, prevarication, obstructionism, and outright perfidy that comes out of Washington D.C. is heart stopping.

Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Extortion 17 are just a few of the major lies and cover-ups pushed by D.C.

Executive overreach and Congressional abdication of authority over to the bureaucratic alphabet agencies is in itself a scandalous breach of trust with its constituents.

The unbridled national debt wrought upon us by those in office is Cloward Piven on steroids, and its ramifications will be devastating.

Last but not least is the use of the IRS as a tool for punishment and harassment of those who are on the wrong side of the administration’s political fence.

The harsh reality is that the America many of us grew up in and took for granted has now become a fascist state. We need to do our best to climb out of any boxes we may be in, thoroughly examine any assumptions we may be carrying, and search for the truth, bitter though it may be.

Knowledge is power. Even though we may feel powerless and may not see a restoration of our great country within our lifetime, we will hold and guard the truth so as to pass it on to future generations. They will then have the necessary knowledge to reclaim America when the time presents itself…

Bolton: ‘Palestine’ is not a state


National Security Advisor John Bolton stated the obvious about the Arabs pretending to be Palestinians; viz., Palestine is not a State.

 

The remarks came at a White House presser announcing the USA is no longer a party to the world body International Court of Justice (ICJ). The move primarily asserts that the United States will not lose its National Sovereignty to a world government body. And secondly the remarks thumb a news at those who interfere in Israel’s National Sovereignty by telling the Jewish State where and where not it can place its Capital City within the (true) Nation’s national borders.

It’s not a state now. It does not meet the customary international law test of statehood,” US National Security Adviser John Bolton stated.

 

US National Security Adviser John Bolton put the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) official status into perspective at a Wednesday press briefing when he announced that the United States would no longer be a signatory party to the United Nations’ International Court of Justice (ICJ).

 

“The president has decided that the United States will withdraw from the optional protocol and dispute resolution to the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. This is in connection with a case brought by the so-called state of Palestine naming the United States as a defendant [in the ICJ], challenging our move of our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” Bolton said.

 

White House reporters immediately jumped on the adjective, asking whether calling the Palestinian Authority (PA) a “so-called state” was “productive,” considering that President Donald Trump had said he was working towards a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

 

Bolton’s answer was unequivocal.

 

“It’s not a state now. It does not meet the customary international law test of statehood,” he said. “It doesn’t control defined boundaries. It doesn’t fulfill the normal functions of government. There are a whole host of reasons why it’s not a state.”

 

“It could become a state, as the president said, but that requires diplomatic negotiations with Israel and others,” he added. “So calling it the ‘so-called state of Palestine’ defines exactly what it has been. [That’s] the position that the United States government has pursued uniformly since 1988, when the Palestinian Authority declared itself to be the State of Palestine.”

Bolton might have been referring to the fact that 137 countries have recognized the PA as a state since that date. He reiterated the US rejection of this position on a bipartisan level.

 

“We don’t recognize it as a state… We have consistently, across Democratic and Republican administrations, opposed the admission of ‘Palestine’ to the UN as a state because it’s not a state.”

 

Although the PA is only a “non-member observer state” at the UN, it was allowed to formally join the International Criminal Court in 2015. Since the court’s decisions are binding, the US, by leaving the protocol, blocked the Palestinian case.

 

Bolton added that the withdrawal was part of a general effort by the Trump administration to protect US sovereignty from the reach of the international court.

 

“We will commence a review of all international agreements that may still expose the United States to purported binding jurisdiction dispute resolution in the International Court of Justice,” he said. “The United States will not sit idly by as baseless politicized claims are brought against us.”

Article by Ari Bussel

Posted September 19, 2018

Ari Bussel sent a bit of an editorial nearly a week ago. I just caught up the Bussel piece and offer my apologies for not catching it earlier. I am unsure if my primary email service is actively restricting some emails (which is possible) or if some emails go to spam and get deleted without notice. I found Ari’s article on my secondary email which I do not check as often.

 

I say all this because the article is awesome and informative for those of us residing in the USA.

 

In the article you will discover info on a Pro-Israel website – Canary Mission – which purposes to expose anti-Israel perpetrators maligning the Land of the Jews with hate-propaganda.

 

You will find info on what Ari will only reference as “The entity” which is working as a private organization in close relationship with an Israeli government agency called Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs. The Strategic Affairs’ purpose is to fight Boycott, Divest, Sanctions (BDS) hate movements attacking Israel.

 

Apparently, the Ministry of Strategic Affairs is contracting with private entities in its anti-BDS efforts to avoid revealing tactics and actions which Israel law holds that government operations be revealed. This is rubbing Israel’s Leftists and pro-Palestinian folks crazy.

 

After doing a little digging I think Ari’s “The entity” is Kela Shlomo which is translated to us American English speakers as Solomon’s Sling. If my guess is correct, the Times of Israel has some relevant info on the organization.

 

I am not quite sure where Ari Bussel stands on all these semi-secretive operations. I get the sense Ari admires the work of the Canary Mission but is a bit suspicious of Israel government funding going to private organizations as Kela Shlomo. There is always the chance of the abuse of power where transparency is lacking. But when an existential situation is present, perhaps a little secrecy is a good thing.

Canary Mission

 

By Ari Bussel

Sent Sep 12, 2018, 10:28 PM

 

“Nothing is more unnerving to the truly conventional than the unashamed misfit” JK Rowling

 

The Times of Israel last month published an article by JTA titledPro-Israel donor Adam Milstein denies report that he funds Canary Mission.”

 

The subtitle to the article readsPreviously un-aired Al Jazeera report names the donor as being behind anonymous site that aims to name and shame anti-Israel activists.”

 

Philanthropist Adam Milstein clearly has his reasons for wanting to distance himself from Canary Mission.  What was the reason that the article appeared, I do not know, but it does not serve our collective interests.

 

Adam Milstein

 

For some reason, the article singles out Milstein of all the local philanthropists and Canary Mission from all other pro-Israel organizations, many of which philanthropist Milstein supports and is proud about doing so.

 

As one example, Scholars for Peace in the Middle East touts “the work of our friends at the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation who work on strengthening US-Israel ties” as a resource and offers its readers and supporters “to sign up for their mailers and updates.”

 

One would expect any leading figure in the pro-Israel camp to be aware of Canary Mission work and to applaud it.

 

Canary Mission

 

A close friend of mine was a financial supporter of and very involved with Canary Mission from its very founding.  Canary Mission is not a clandestine operation of Israel’s intelligence services.  Rather, it compiles and presents readily available information about Israel’s detractors.

 

The reporting of Canary Mission from open sources is accurate, verifiable and to the point.  The truth, presented in a concentrated manner, is most potent.  And thus, this disturbs greatly those who like to act in the shadows and conduct their evil, intimidation and terror without any oversight or recourse.

 

In some ways, two other Jerusalem-based organizations, MEMRI and PMW act similarly, providing a compilation of open-source information to the public at large (the former translating it from Arabic and Farsi, the latter focused on Palestinian media and society).  In all three cases, the reflection in the mirror of those being reported is not much to their liking.  The translation of what they say and the ease of getting to the information stands contrary to the misleading public image they try to maintain in the West.

 

Israel’s detractors are neither ashamed nor hide what they do.  Quite on the contrary, they are very active and most visible in their fight to damage, vilify and try to eliminate the Jewish state.  They demand the right to spew their hatred while preventing anyone else from the right to express his or her opinion or to safely listen to others expressing their opinions.  They also use our own Western system and institutions to silence and intimidate anyone who does not think their way.

 

Canary Mission’s website states that it “documents individuals and organizations that promote hatred of the USA, Israel and Jews on North American college campuses.  Canary Mission investigates hatred across the entire political spectrum, including the far right, far left and anti-Israel activists.”

 

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center [Blog Editor: I have to disagree with Ari on the SPLC. The SPLC groups Christian Biblically moral institutions, Counterjihadists & Pro-Israel organizations (and individuals) that are Conservative in the same categories as Neo-Nazi & White Supremacists. NOT GOOD.] and the Anti-Defamation League  – the three oldest, most established and most respected civil-rights organizations in the USA — do the very same via their individual “fact-finding” departments.

 

Unlike these leading organizations, Canary Mission who uses a dot org suffix is not clear at all about what it is (apparently it is not a 510(c)(3) organization that provides a tax-write-off for its donors and in return has to have its books fully open to the public).  However, not giving tax-exempt status does not necessarily reduce or damage its credibility, and those who want to support it financially do so with after-tax money.

 

Canary Mission address, according to a Google search, is Parcels Plus, shipping and mailing service in Florida.  This is not surprising, given the nature of the individuals and entities being “exposed.”  The operators of Canary Mission may feel (and rightly so) threatened for their property, wellbeing, personal safety and lives, and the danger is translated into just caution.

 

Fighting Canary Mission

 

Canary Mission is a necessary outfit, crucial at this time and provides added value in the service of Israel.

 

The article appearing at The Times of Israel may provide a clue as to the success of Canary Mission.

 

According to the Forward, Israeli border control officers have used information from the site to bar activists from entering the country.  The site does not reveal who funds it or manages its activity.”

 

So this is what bothers Israel’s enemies.  They are being highlighted in a website, put in one place for the world to see and know.  In some circles that process is called “shaming,” although for Israel’s detractors it is a badge of honor.  Likely they would like nothing more than to take this site down and hurt anyone associated with it.  But they cannot do it easily, since our own system cannot be used against it.  Canary Mission is apparently not subject to rules and regulations of the Internal Revenue Service since it does not claim a non-profit status.  It can, however, be subject to a lawsuit, and these likely will start arriving.

 

Half a year ago, an outfit calling itself “Palestine Legalreported that Canary Mission Twitter account was suspended (for two days) and called its supporters and “victims of Canary Mission’s harassment to contact Palestine Legal and report any further violations of Twitter’s conduct rules directly to Twitter.”

 

Palestine Legal helps us understand why Canary Mission poses a threat.  Its content?  No.  Its existence – very much so:  the very audacity of Jews and Israelis not to be led to the slaughter like obedient sheep, the utter refusal to go to the ovens, amazing!

 

Palestine Legal is using Canary Mission as another tool in fighting Israel.  Let us read the way it describes/defines Canary Mission:  “Defamatory website that blacklists and harasses activists who support Palestinian rights.”

 

Palestine Legal continues to advise that “the website … now profiles over 1870 students, professors and community activists.  Canary Mission frequently harasses these individuals on Twitter with abusive and hateful messages ….  Blacklisted individuals have reported being questioned by current and prospective employers and schools about their support for Palestinian rights … they have been put on leave, denied bank accounts, received death threats, and been denied entry and Israeli-controlled entry points into Israel/Palestine.”

 

Palestine Legal is creating a full transposition:  Those who call to boycott, divest and sanction Israel claim to be “blacklisted” and “harassed.”  Those who advocate use of “any means” to bring about Israel’s demise are suddenly blaming the victims for issuing “death threats,” a preferred method by them.  And the constant accusation of “being denied entry into Israel” surfaces verbatim.

 

Fighting Back

 

Allow me, detractors of Israel and her devout enemies, to clarify and emphasize:  First, Israel has every right (and fiduciary responsibility) to prevent those who seek her destruction from coming in.  You may not like it, as you got used to free and complete access.  No more.  Israel has awoken, understanding such irresponsible behavior is hurting her.

 

Second, Israel does not need to rely on foreign or open sources for taking protective and corrective action.  Israel, a sovereign country with one of the best intelligence services and armed forces in the world definitely should not want to rely on a “shadowy-at-best source” unless it checked and verified and cross-checked and re-verified its contents.

 

Israel’s enemies are hurt and upset that they cannot do exactly as they please, that Israel has woken up and decided to start acting rationally.  And Canary Mission is becoming a visible obstacle.

 

Allow me to further assure you, Israel’s enemies and detractors:  Even without the existence or presence of Canary Mission, Israel will not revert to its old self of allowing you a free reign of terror.  You will still be questioned and you will still be denied entrance.  These are not unalienable human rights to which you are entitled.  There is an Israel; and she will do what is necessary to defend herself and ensure her continued existence.

 

Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs

 

An article that appeared earlier this year in The Forward and later was expanded upon in an Israeli investigative site The Seventh Eye provides the context which will yield a greater understanding.

Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs has created a full entity, like a military division, tasked with fighting BDS.  The entity [Blog Editor: I am guessing “The entity” is referencing Kela Shlomo (which in English translates as Solomon’s Sling)]  is headed by a Brigadier General (res.), and it has tried to exclude its sizeable budgets from the Israeli laws of transparency claiming national security.

 

It is this attempt that has attracted much attention to it (much like Milstein’s denial of having anything to do with Canary Mission, adding to the frustration of the enemies and to the aura of success and effectiveness of Canary Mission).  Also, the tens of millions of NIS earmarked to be spent fighting BDS have attracted the very keen interest of the very same organizations that failed to stop BDS as it grew and expanded and anyone else who sees a pot of gold and requires/demands access to enjoy the spoils.

 

It is this Ministry new division that has approached various non-profits in the USA and offered them funding.  Most refused – as it is not allowed under US law.  Most, but not all.

 

Alas, there are laws in the USA prohibiting exactly such activities.

 

Are all means sanctified by the objective?  Not in Israel, and definitely not in the IDF, that sacrifices its own soldiers for protecting its ethics code and the sanctity of life.

 

Israel, the past has taught us, is being held to a much different moral standard than any other nation and people in the world.

 

Fighting Honorably

 

The lesson here is likely very simple.  When fighting dirty, do not be surprised if the other side will use some of the same tactics and will follow a page from your own book.  Expect to be exposed; and expect the other side to fight back.

And Israel’s enemies do not like it.

 

Maybe they should take a lesson from the many pages practiced by the IDF – act honorably, above reproach.  Hide nothing.  Recognize that transparency and truth are amazing remedies.  Fight with conviction and with determination.  Help protect life, liberty and justice; help build and create.

Bolton Gets ICC and Palestinian Authority Attention


John R. Houk

© September 14, 2018

 

Here’s something in the news cycle you probably have not read or heard about due anti-Trump media bias and anti-Trump media platform bias.

 

National Security Advisor John Bolton issue a stern warning to the International Criminal Court (ICC) if they unjustly go after the USA or our nation’s allies – SUCH AS ISRAEL – with fake accusations of global crimes merely because the alleged crime is a thumbing of the nose to the evils of Multiculturalism or National self-preservation. AND in conjunction to the Bolton warning, the U.S. has booted the Palestinian Authority out of Washington DC and set up the U.S. Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem.

 

KEEP IN MIND there never has been a Palestinian nation or people of Arab ancestry in world history. The designation of a “Palestinian People” ONLY came as the now defunct Soviet Union and the Arab League nations created them as a result of failed multiple Arab nations invasions of Israel between 1948 (Israel reclaims their heritage via independence) and 1973.

 

The pretext for future Arab invasions of Israel was the of liberating Arab-Palestinians  from Israel. Hence the Arab League nations and the Communist USSR formed the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1964. The Arab nations NEVER had any intention of setting up a so-called Palestinian nation. They wanted to invade and fight over who got what land for their own nation’s National Interest. A great analysis of Arabs vs. Jews in what is now Israel is at Stratfor which should be read in entirety but for the purpose of this post – here is a tidbit of relevant info:

 

Palestinian nationalism’s first enemy is Israel, but if Israel ceased to exist, the question of an independent Palestinian state would not be settled. All of the countries bordering such a state would have serious claims on its lands, not to mention a profound distrust of Palestinian intentions. The end of Israel thus would not guarantee a Palestinian state. One of the remarkable things about Israel’s Operation Cast Lead in Gaza was that no Arab state moved quickly to take aggressive steps on the Gazans’ behalf. Apart from ritual condemnation, weeks into the offensive no Arab state had done anything significant. This was not accidental: The Arab states do not view the creation of a Palestinian state as being in their interests. They do view the destruction of Israel as being in their interests, but since they do not expect that to come about anytime soon, it is in their interest to reach some sort of understanding with the Israelis while keeping the Palestinians contained.

 

The emergence of a Palestinian state in the context of an Israeli state also is not something the Arab regimes see as in their interest — and this is not a new phenomenon. They have never simply acknowledged Palestinian rights beyond the destruction of Israel. In theory, they have backed the Palestinian cause, but in practice they have ranged from indifferent to hostile toward it. Indeed, the major power that is now attempting to act on behalf of the Palestinians is Iran — a non-Arab state whose involvement is regarded by the Arab regimes as one more reason to distrust the Palestinians. (The Geopolitics of the Palestinians; Stratfor Worldview; 5/15/11 05:00 GMT)

 

Israel Hayom posted a great editorial on John Bolton, the USA position, Israel and the pseudo-Palestinians (includes cut funding to UNWRA which aided Hamas terrorism in Gaza). I am cross posting from Israpundit where I discovered the editorial.

Putting the PLO in its place

 

By Ariel Kahana

Originally at Israel Hayom

September 14, 2018

Israpundit

 

Twelve hours and an ocean separated two important speeches this week. On Monday, U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton addressed the Federalist Society in Washington. The next day, European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini spoke before the EU Parliament in Strasbourg, France.

 

Bolton made an unprecedented attack on the International Criminal Court in The Hague, saying, “The United States will use any means necessary to protect our citizens and those of our allies from unjust prosecution by this illegitimate court,” he said.

 

“If the court comes after us, Israel or other US allies, we will not sit quietly,” Bolton said, adding that ICC judges and prosecutors could face personal sanctions from the U.S., including being banned from entering the U.S. and/or prosecution in the U.S. justice system.

Little was said about Bolton’s speech in Israel but the appreciation for it was as great as the silence about it. The ICC is a major concern for the country’s leaders. The threat of Israelis being tried in The Hague hangs like a sword over their heads. IDF soldiers and commanders could be tried for actions taken as part of their military service, and any approval of construction plans in Greater Jerusalem or on the Golan Heights or in Samaria, could be defined by the ICC as a war crime. This is the widely held position in the ICC, which is exactly where law and politics meet.

 

Over the years, Israel has taken steps to prevent ICC intervention, but as with any other legal measure, it is hard to know whether they were sufficient. Therefore, we need another level of defense, which Bolton and U.S. President Donald Trump have just supplied. The defense tactics of one small Middle Eastern country bear no similarity to explicit threats from the only superpower in the world. Because the ICC, like all international law, includes both law and politics, there is no doubt that the American threats are having an effect. For years, the ICC has been trying to increase its international legitimacy. Western Europe and Japan are behind it, but the U.S. is not a member, and plenty of other countries criticize its approach and policies.

 

The ICC might have responded to Bolton’s speech by saying declaring it would continue to work undeterred, but even in The Hague they know that while if you spit in America’s face, it gets wet, but if America spits back, you’ll drown.

 

Less than a day after Bolton spoke, Mogherini stood up before the EU Parliament. She also discussed justice, the law, and Israel, but took a slightly different line, saying: “The Israeli High Court last week rejected the petitions by the residents of the Palestinian village of Khan al-Ahmar. … [The demolition] would be contrary to Israel’s obligations under international humanitarian law [AK: a misleading statement, the High Court of Justice spent a decade reviewing the petitions and is obligated to international law]. … The demolition of Khan al-Ahmar, together with plans for further settlement expansions in the same area, would also severely threaten the viability of the two-state solution [AK: untrue].”

 

Mogherini added that the evacuation and demolition of Khan al-Ahmar would have “grave humanitarian consequences.”

 

Mogherini and Bolton are an ocean apart, and not only in the geographical sense. A thousand years would be insufficient for the continent in whose name Mogherini speaks to pay its historic debt to the Jewish people. And still, the EU foreign policy chief stands at the head of the anti-Israel front, mixing up politics with law and justice in accordance with traditional European hypocrisy. On the one hand, she allows illegal African migrants to drown at sea or be slaughtered by Libyan militias. On the other, she preaches morality to Israel. And only to Israel.

 

The Europeans, who owe us so much, bandy around some very lofty talk, but as usual are fanning the fires of hatred. The U.S., which doesn’t owe us a thing, is supplying us a shield the likes of which we have never enjoyed in the name of justice and freedom. That’s the unbridgeable gap between Europe and the U.S.

 

Under Trump, America and Europe are growing farther apart, and not only when it comes to Israel. In any case, we can predict who will win. America doesn’t need Europe. Europe, on the other hand, really does need the U.S. Sooner or later, the old country will call in the new one, as it did twice last century. We can only hope it won’t be because of World War III.

 

Mogherini’s hostile speech did, however, contain one accurate sentence. “The two-state solution is today under serious threat – more than ever before.” Indeed, the U.S. announcement that it was closing the PLO mission in Washington is a death blow to the Palestinian movement.

 

To understand how serious a move it was, we need to go back in history. From its founding in 1964 until now, the Palestine Liberation Organization (under Yasser Arafat and now Mahmoud Abbas) has sought international support. The hypocritical Europeans aligned themselves with it in the 1970s in what later turned out to be “protection” for the PLO not carrying out terrorist attacks on the continent. The U.S. was the only country who refused at the time to give legitimacy to the biggest killer of Jews since the Holocaust. As a nation of values, it saw terrorism as unacceptable and refused any ties with the PLO. Aside from one small “information office” in New York and, of course, intelligence ties, the American response to the organization was boycott.

 

The tough U.S. stance was effective and was one of the factors in Arafat declaring at the end of 1988 that he was turning away from terrorism and would recognize Israel. Then-President Ronald Reagan, who was at the end of his second term, fell into the trap.

 

“The initiation of a dialogue between the United States and PLO representatives is an important step in the peace process. … The United States’ special commitment to Israel’s security and well-being remains unshakable. Indeed, a major reason for our entry into this dialogue is to help Israel achieve the recognition and security it deserves,” Reagan declared on Dec. 14, 1988. The rest of that dialogue never happened, but the U.S. recognition of the PLO was already a fait accompli. Five years later, when the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin signed the Oslo Accords, the Clinton administration upgraded the PLO office to the status of an official delegation. In 2010 former President Barack Obama boosted it a step higher on the diplomatic ladder.

 

With a tailwind of support from Obama and the Europeans crossing their fingers, the Palestinians persuaded the entire world to turn around them. They were surrounded by economic aid and moral, political, and media support from every direction. This development hit two peaks: one when the U.N. General Assembly recognized Palestine as a nonmember state in 2012, and the other when the U.N. Security Council passed Resolution 2334, which condemned Israeli settlements as illegal and deemed the Western Wall “occupied territory,” to massive applause. This was the core of the Obama legacy, which tried to taint Israel and set parameters for any future peace deal.

 

Then Trump arrived. By the end of 2017, the president and then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson were already threatening not to extend the PLO’s mandated presence in Washington. They did so partly because of the Palestinian boycott of the administration, but also because the PLO had violated an American law that explicitly forbids the PA to appeal to international entities such as the ICC. But the Palestinians failed to heed the warnings and didn’t realize that Trump meant what he said.

 

Now Bolton has appeared and finished the job. By closing the PLO mission, Trump, Bolton, and all the rest of the president’s men have rolled the Palestinian issue 30 years back in time to where it stood in the 1980s. Things the Palestinians and the world as a whole took for granted – like a future Palestinian state or a demi-embassy on American soil – slipped from their grasp. Trump dropped them to the bottom of the barrel and has called the legitimacy of what has become known as the “Palestinian struggle” into question.

 

In all this, Israel is like a small child surrounded by toys he never thought he’d actually get. The U.S. recognition of Jerusalem last December and the relocation of the U.S. Embassy to the capital this year, as well as the U.S. cuts to funding for the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, cuts to money that goes to pay Palestinian terrorists, and a total hands-off policy when it comes to criticizing Israel – not to mention shutting down the PLO mission and threatening the ICC – are just a partial list, and Trump hasn’t even been in office for two years.

 

But a lot of the recent American steps went over Israel’s head, without it knowing about them or even despite some mild objections by its diplomatic officials. At the end of the day, the Trump administration is grinding all the paradigms of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict into dust. This daring approach leaves those who until recently were considered local experts on the conflict and peace process speechless.

 

It’s not only the people in the peace industry who are left embarrassed in the face of the lavish gifts from Uncle Sam. The Israeli Right, including those factions represented in the cabinet, doesn’t really know what to do with all this abundance. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is justifiably proud of withstanding the Obama currents, is finding it hard to ride the Trump wave.

 

Instead of walking around grinning, the government should lay a list of historic and irreversible steps in front of Trump that would anchor our vital interests in Judea and Samaria. The first should be to link Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim. Netanyahu, as well as his predecessors, recognized how crucial it is for Israel to build in E1 as a way of keeping a permanent hold on Jerusalem. Thus far, the government hasn’t presented the Trump administration with any plan of that kind, U.S. Ambassador David Friedman told Israel Hayom in an exclusive interview last weekend.

 

And it’s not only Jerusalem. The first Netanyahu government decided in 1988 to define the areas of Judea and Samaria that were of strategic importance to Israel. Now it’s time to lay them before the Americans. And we should also kill the idea of a Palestinian state. Trump declared when he first took office that he didn’t care if a peace deal entailed two states or one.

 

Because Trump’s “deal of the century” for peace between Israel and the Palestinians isn’t moving forward, and now that it’s been made clear that the president isn’t afraid to put the Palestinians in their place, it’s time for Israel to drop the two-state idea. Ever since Trump took office, Netanyahu has refrained from a clear statement on the issue, or from asking Trump to make a binding statement. But who knows when this opportunity will present itself again?

 

Trump has at least two years left in the White House. His successor could be as hostile to Israel as Trump is supportive. So Netanyahu needs to take advantage of the remaining time to diplomatically fortify Israel so that whoever comes after Trump won’t be able to harm us. But for that to happen, we cannot remain passive spectators. This time, Netanyahu must be proactive.

An anonymous source leaked an about hour video of a Google-wide meeting to Breitbart pertaining to Donald Trump’s 2016 election as President of the United States. Google leadership tells their rank-n-file of Google disappointment and try to assuage rampant discouragement that election may cause.

 

You can watch Google’s political bias at Breitbart. I wish I could embed the Breitbart copy of the video but I couldn’t figure out a Breitbart embed-share code.

 

I figured Google would delete any video upload that would expose the company’s Leftist adoration on Google-owned Youtube. I decided to look anyway.

 

Remarkably I FOUND SUCH A YOUTUBE VIDEO. A Youtube channel called merely “Curtis” has taken the first leap at sharing Google bias. Of course you can now always view Google bias at Breitbart, but viewing on any Youtube Channel might disappear.

 

Unfortunately Youtube is the easiest video platform to embed on a blog. In that vein here is the Youtube embed for my blog while it lasts:

 

VIDEO: Leaked video shows Google leadership’s political bias and conspiracy

 

Posted by Curtis

Published on Sep 12, 2018

 

In this leaked video from 2016, we can see Google leadership’s dismay over the results of the US election, and hear their discussing their conspiracy to provide “in kind” political efforts to one party to attempt to sway the outcome

 

SO, it is no surprise of the massive efforts by Google and Youtube to censor all things Conservative and Pro-Trump. The ideology of the Google power-lords is not only a destructive Leftism, but there is an apparent ideological inbred hatred that reaches beyond the scope of Free Speech disagreement with those who believe in a Great America based on the Original Intent on our Founders Documents.

 

So what should Conservatives do? Should we boycott Google and their powerful like-minded media platforms?

 

It might surprise you to know that I don’t think so. As long as these Leftist dingle-berries like for us to read, listen, and watch their paid advertisers products, the poor hapless souls against Capitalism are too addicted to the benefits of Capitalism – wealth and power – they will desire we Conservative and Patriot users of their products to continue using their media platforms.

 

Indeed, the Leftist Media moguls have a great fear. That one day an individual or individuals will innovate a media platform with an ease of usage dedicated to the Conservative point of view. Just as some News innovators realized there is a huge block of people who would embrace Conservative TV, Conservative Radio and Conservative Print; there will arise innovators who will invent media platforms with the same ease of use and stability of the greedy Leftist media platforms. On that day, when markets begin to advertise with Conservative platforms as much if not more, the Leftist greedy souls will feel a stab in their monied hearts as Conservative consumers  begin to leave behind the Leftist propaganda/censorship media platforms in droves.

 

ALREADY, there are operating attempts at media platforms aimed at attracting Conservatives. Those platforms still have to work out bugs to make comparable in stability and usage of the Leftist platforms, but you have to notice the alternative platforms are getting better and better. I look forward to the day when hypocritical Leftists who have used their platforms to manage the flow of ideas for decades all of a sudden lose the same money they used to manipulate the flow of digital media.

 

In case anyone wants my opinion, the MeWe platform is so far the closest to dethroning the Leftists such as Google, Twitter and Facebook. Perhaps one day Conservatives find something other than PayPal donation buttons on their websites and blogs that have no problem with Conservative ideology.

LEAKED VIDEO: Google Leadership’s Dismayed Reaction to Trump Election

 

[At Breitbart the leaked video is place HERE.]

A video recorded by Google shortly after the 2016 presidential election reveals an atmosphere of panic and dismay amongst the tech giant’s leadership, coupled with a determination to thwart both the Trump agenda and the broader populist movement emerging around the globe.

 

The video is a full recording of Google’s first all-hands meeting following the 2016 election (these weekly meetings are known inside the company as “TGIF” or “Thank God It’s Friday” meetings). Sent to Breitbart News by an anonymous source, it features co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, VPs Kent Walker and Eileen Naughton, CFO Ruth Porat, and CEO Sundar Pichai. It can be watched in full above. It can and should be watched in full above in order to get the full context of the meeting and the statements made.

 

It was reported earlier this week that Google tried to boost turnout among the Latino population to help Hillary Clinton, only to be dismayed as the usually solid Democratic voting bloc switched to the GOP in record numbers. This video shows a similar level of dismay among Google’s most high-profile figures.

 

These individuals, who preside over a company with unrivaled influence over the flow of information, can be seen disparaging the motivations of Trump voters and plotting ways to use their vast resources to thwart the Trump agenda.

 

Co-founder Sergey Brin can be heard comparing Trump supporters to fascists and extremists. Brin argues that like other extremists, Trump voters were motivated by “boredom,” which he says in the past led to fascism and communism.

 

The Google co-founder then asks his company to consider what it can do to ensure a “better quality of governance and decision-making.”

 

VP for Global Affairs Kent Walker argues that supporters of populist causes like the Trump campaign are motivated by “fear, xenophobia, hatred, and a desire for answers that may or may not be there.”

 

Later, Walker says that Google should fight to ensure the populist movement – not just in the U.S. but around the world – is merely a “blip” and a “hiccup” in a historical arc that “bends toward progress.”

 

CEO Sundar Pichai states that the company will develop machine learning and A.I. to combat what an employee described as “misinformation” shared by “low-information voters.”

 

Key moments from the video can be found at the following timestamps:

 

  • (00:00:00 – 00:01:12) Google co-founder Sergey Brin states that the weekly meeting is “probably not the most joyous we’ve had” and that “most people here are pretty upset and pretty sad.”

 

  • (00:00:24) Brin contrasts the disappointment of Trump’s election with his excitement at the legalization of cannabis in California, triggering laughs and applause from the audience of Google employees.

 

  • (00:01:12) Returning to seriousness, Brin says he is “deeply offen[ded]” by the election of Trump, and that the election “conflicts with many of [Google’s] values.”

 

  • (00:09:10) Trying to explain the motivations of Trump supporters, Senior VP for Global Affairs, Kent Walker concludes: “fear, not just in the United States, but around the world is fueling concerns, xenophobia, hatred, and a desire for answers that may or may not be there.”

 

  • (00:09:35) Walker goes on to describe the Trump phenomenon as a sign of “tribalism that’s self-destructive [in] the long-term.”

 

  • (00:09:55) Striking an optimistic tone, Walker assures Google employees that despite the election, “history is on our side” and that the “moral arc of history bends towards progress.”

 

  • (00:10:45) Walker approvingly quotes former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s comparison between “the world of the wall” with its “isolation and defensiveness” and the “world of the square, the piazza, the marketplace, where people come together into a community and enrich each other’s lives.”

 

  • (00:13:10) CFO Ruth Porat appears to break down in tears when discussing the election result.

 

  • (00:15:20) Porat promises that Google will “use the great strength and resources and reach we have to continue to advance really important values.”

 

  • (00:16:50) Stating “we all need a hug,” she then instructs the audience of Google employees to hug the person closest to them.

 

  • (00:20:24) Eileen Naughton, VP of People Operations, promises that Google’s policy team in DC is “all over” the immigration issue and that the company will “keep a close watch on it.”

 

  • (00:21:26) Naughton jokes about Google employees asking, ‘Can I move to Canada?’ after the election. She goes on to seriously discuss the options available to Google employees who wish to leave the country.

 

  • (00:23:12) Naughton does acknowledge “diversity of opinion and political persuasion” and notes that she has heard from conservative Google employees who say they “haven’t felt entirely comfortable revealing who [they] are.” and urged “tolerance.” (Several months later, the company would fire James Damore allegedly for disagreeing with progressive narratives.)

 

  • (00:27:00) Responding to a question about “filter bubbles,” Sundar Pichai promises to work towards “correcting” Google’s role in them
  • (00:27:30) Sergey Brin praises an audience member’s suggestion of increasing matched Google employee donations to progressive groups.

 

  • (00:34:40) Brin compares Trump voters to “extremists,” arguing for a correlation between the economic background of Trump supporters and the kinds of voters who back extremist movements. Brin says that “voting is not a rational act” and that not all of Trump’s support can be attributed to “income disparity.” He suggests that Trump voters might have been motivated by boredom rather than legitimate concerns.

 

  • (00:49:10) An employee asks if Google is willing to “invest in grassroots, hyper-local efforts to bring tools and services and understanding of Google products and knowledge” so that people can “make informed decisions that are best for themselves.” Pichai’s response: Google will ensure its “educational products” reach “segments of the population [they] are not [currently] fully reaching.”

 

  • (00:54:33) An employee asks what Google is going to do about “misinformation” and “fake news” shared by “low-information voters.” Pichai responds by stating that “investments in machine learning and AI” are a “big opportunity” to fix the problem.

 

  • (00:56:12) Responding to an audience member, Walker says Google must ensure the rise of populism doesn’t turn into “a world war or something catastrophic … and instead is a blip, a hiccup.”

 

  • (00:58:22) Brin compares Trump voters to supporters of fascism and communism, linking the former movement to “boredom,” which Brin previously linked to Trump voters. “It sort of sneaks up sometimes, really bad things” says Brin.

 

  • (01:01:15) A Google employee states: “speaking to white men, there’s an opportunity for you right now to understand your privilege” and urges employees to “go through the bias-busting training, read about privilege, read about the real history of oppression in our country.” He urges employees to “discuss the issues you are passionate about during Thanksgiving dinner and don’t back down and laugh it off when you hear the voice of oppression speak through metaphors.” Every executive on stage – the CEO, CFO, two VPs and the two Co-founders – applaud the employee.

 

  • (01:01:57) An audience member asks if the executives see “anything positive from this election result.” The audience of Google employees, and the executives on stage, burst into laughter. “Boy, that’s a really tough one right now” says Brin.

 

Update — After Breitbart News published this article, a Google spokesperson replied to a request for comment with the following statement:

 

“At a regularly scheduled all hands meeting, some Google employees and executives expressed their own personal views in the aftermath of a long and divisive election season. For over 20 years, everyone at Google has been able to freely express their opinions at these meetings. Nothing was said at that meeting, or any other meeting, to suggest that any political bias ever influences the way we build or operate our products. To the contrary, our products are built for everyone, and we design them with extraordinary care to be a trustworthy source of information for everyone, without regard to political viewpoint.”

SMOKING GUN MEMO LAID OUT LEFT’S ASSAULT ON CONSERVATIVES


On 8/29/18 I cross posted Joseph Farah’s email alert “The shocking Soros ‘speech code cartel’ memo”. Farah exposed a Leftist agenda under the support of George Soros a memo authored by David Brock with a game plan to undermine President Trump squelch Conservative voices online: “Full David Brock Confidential Memo On Fighting Trump”.

 

Matthew Vadum does more than talk about it. Vadum adds some detail on FrontPageMag.com.

SMOKING GUN MEMO LAID OUT LEFT’S ASSAULT ON CONSERVATIVES

While President Trump was being inaugurated, the Soros-funded Left was busy agitating.

 

By Matthew Vadum

August 30, 2018

FrontPage Magazine

 

George Soros

 

[To learn more about the Freedom Center’s recent victory over the Left’s censorship attempt, and its call for a coalition across party and ideological lines to defend free speech, click here.]

 

A strategy memo compiled by George Soros-funded activist groups as President Trump was being inaugurated last year foretold and seemed to lay the groundwork for many of the political difficulties Trump now faces and the politics-related strife now roiling the nation.

 

The memo takes on a heightened importance as the politically-driven censorship of conservatives by the gigantic, unregulated social media corporations controlled by the Left is moving into high gear while the crucial midterm congressional elections of Nov. 6 approach.

 

The intensely anti-conservative animus in the memo may have inspired MasterCard and WorldPay’s attempt on Aug. 21 to strangle the fundraising efforts of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, publisher of FrontPage, by refusing to complete its financial transactions. On that day MasterCard informed the Freedom Center that it would no longer process its transactions because it had been labeled a “hate group” by the radical leftist groups known as the Southern Poverty Law Center and ColorOfChange.org. The Freedom Center stood falsely accused of being “hateful in nature” and “advocating for violence.”

 

Only a massive outcry by conservative groups and prominent conservatives like Rush Limbaugh forced MasterCard to back down days later and restore the Freedom Center’s online fundraising facilities. But other conservative websites haven’t been so lucky. Many have been shut down or seen their traffic slashed as leftists have manipulated algorithms and limited the reach of conservative content.

 

The David Horowitz Freedom Center has since called for a coalition to be created across partisan and ideological lines to defend free speech.

 

The memo itself, “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action,” marked an escalation in tactics by the Left. It was first made public last year by Joe Schoffstall of the Washington Free Beacon around the time Donald Trump took the oath of office to become the nation’s 45th president. This smoking-gun planning document aimed at suppressing conservative voices on social media was ignored by the mainstream media at the time and in the more than a year-and-a-half since.

 

The document spelled out the Left’s plans for impeaching President Trump, filing lawsuits against the fledgling administration, and using social media to delegitimize Trump’s presidency and hurt Republicans. “Right now, our institutions are among the critical few that stand between the America we love and the abyss,” the memo stated. “We must protect and defend our democratic values. We will not back down. We will only move forward.”

 

WND founder Joseph Farah referred last week to the 49-page memo as a blueprint “revealing how George Soros operatives, including David Brock, were there at the genesis, the planning stages, with their hands on the ignition key, of the most concerted, well-funded, diabolical attack on free speech in the history of America.”

 

The document “was nothing short of a plan to turn Google, Facebook and other social media into hyper-partisan Democratic Party activists, promoters, cheerleaders, and off-the-books donors in an effort to turn the country into a one-party state.”

 

The memo outlined left-wing activist David Brock’s four-year plan to undermine the Trump administration and Republicans using Media Matters for America (MMfA), American Bridge 21st Century, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), and left-wing propaganda website Shareblue. All four organizations were either founded by Brock or are now controlled by him. Since 2008, leftist billionaire George Soros has given more than $1.5 million to MMfA and more than $1.1 million to CREW through his philanthropies.

 

Brock, who reportedly raised $65 million during the 2016 election cycle, began working on his plan more or less immediately after Republican Donald Trump unexpectedly trounced Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election in November 2016.

 

Brock and his comrades met in Palm Beach, Fla., as Trump assumed the presidency and Trump-hating Antifa rioted in the streets of the nation’s capital. “What better way to spend inaugural weekend than talking about how to kick Donald Trump’s ass?” Brock said in an email to left-wing mega-donors including Soros and Tom Steyer.

 

Whether Brock can take responsibility for all the leftist-inspired turmoil in the country is debatable, but many of the goals identified in the memo have already come to pass.

 

According to the memo, MMfA “will continue its core mission of disarming right-wing information.” This is what “success will look like,” the document states:

 

Serial misinformers and right-wing propagandists inhabiting everything from social media to the highest levels of government will be exposed, discredited.

Internet and social media platforms, like Google and Facebook, will no longer uncritically and without consequence host and enrich fake news sites and propagandists.

 

Toxic alt-right social media-fueled harassment campaigns that silence dissent and poison our national discourse will be punished and halted.

 

CREW will become “the leading nonpartisan ethics watchdog group in a period of crisis with a president and administration that present possible conflicts of interest and ethical problems on an unprecedented scale,” the memo states.

 

CREW “will demand ethical conduct from the administration and all parts of government, expose improper influence from powerful interests, and ensure accountability when the administration and others shirk ethical standards, rules, and laws.”

 

Success will take this form, according to the document:

 

Trump will be afflicted by a steady flow of damaging information, new revelations, and an inability to avoid conflicts issues.

 

The Trump administration will be forced to defend illegal conduct in court.

 

Powerful industries and interest groups will see their influence wane.

 

Dark money will be a political liability in key states.

 

The Shareblue website “will take back social media for Democrats,” the memo states. The group will “delegitimize Donald Trump’s presidency by emboldening the opposition and empowering the majority of Americans who oppose him.”

 

Success will be achieved when the following happens:

 

Shareblue will become the de facto news outlet for opposition leaders and the grassroots.

 

Trump allies will be forced to step down or change course due to news pushed by Shareblue.

 

Under pressure from Shareblue, Democrats will take more aggressive positions against Trump.

 

Shareblue will achieve financial sustainability while diversifying content offerings and platforms.

 

Top editorial and writing talent will leave competitors to join Shareblue.

 

Meanwhile, President Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday that social media giants Google, Twitter, and Facebook “better be careful” because they “are treading on very, very troubled territory” by favoring left-wing viewpoints.

 

Earlier that day he tweeted, “This is a very serious situation—will be addressed!”

 

“Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD,” he wrote. “Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal.”

 

Google CEO Sundar Pichai has indicated he will not testify at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Sept. 5. on social media and Russian meddling in American elections. Unlike Pichai, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg are expected to testify.

 

Whether Dorsey and Sandberg will tell the truth is an open question.
