Israel Wants World War III — Now

THIS excellent video was posted on Youtube by “Reason and Logic” with the quote:

“Creative destruction is our middle name, both within our own society and abroad. We tear down the old order every day, from business to science, literature, art, architecture, and cinema to politics and the law. Our enemies have always hated this whirlwind of energy and creativity, which menaces their traditions (whatever they may be) and shames them for their inability to keep pace.” Neocon Michael Ledeen


Trump’s Hypocrisy

April 8, 2017

THIRTEEN tweets that illustrate Trump’s hypocrisy on Syria.

In related news:

Iran’s president said on Saturday that “terrorists” were applauding his US counterpart Donald Trump for launching a missile strike on an airbase of his Syrian government ally.

But Hassan Rouhani backed calls for an independent inquiry into a suspected chemical weapons attack on a rebel-held town in northwestern Syria on Tuesday that Trump blamed on Damascus.

“This man who is now in office in America claimed that he wanted to fight terrorism but today all terrorists in Syria are celebrating the US attack,” Rouhani said in a speech on state television. Read More »

The Yinon Plan

April 8, 2017


IN 1982, Oded Yinon, a journalist for the Jerusalem Post and former senior official with the Israeli Foreign Ministry, outlined a plan for Israeli regional supremacy. It involved expansion into the area between the Nile and Euphrates Rivers. This domination would come about by inflaming sectarian divisions in Arab countries and breaking apart these states through managed civil wars.

The Yinon Plan provides essential background for the war in Syria. Read more here at Global Research.

Arrest these Journalists!

April 7, 2017

ROBERT PARRY writes at Consortium News:

With the latest hasty judgment about Tuesday’s poison-gas deaths in a rebel-held area of northern Syria, the mainstream U.S. news media once more reveals itself to be a threat to responsible journalism and to the future of humanity. Again, we see the troubling pattern of verdict first, investigation later, even when that behavior can lead to a dangerous war escalation and many more deaths.

Before a careful evaluation of the evidence about Tuesday’s tragedy was possible, The New York Times and other major U.S. news outlets had pinned the blame for the scores of dead on the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad. That revived demands that the U.S. and other nations establish a “no-fly zone” over Syria, which would amount to launching another “regime change” war and would put America into a likely hot war with nuclear-armed Russia.

Even as basic facts were still being assembled about Tuesday’s incident, we, the public, were prepped to disbelieve the Syrian government’s response that the poison gas may have come from rebel stockpiles that could have been released either accidentally or intentionally causing the civilian deaths in a town in Idlib Province.

The Non-Stop War of Terror

April 7, 2017



CHRISTOPHER BOLLYN writes at his site:

To understand why President Trump has launched military strikes against the Assad government of Syria one needs to understand that the master plan for Syria is to break the country up into ethnic statelets (i.e. Balkanize). This is the Zionist (Israeli) Likud plan, known as the Yinon Plan (1982), which calls for destroying the military forces of both Syria and Iraq and then breaking them up. To read more about the Zionist master plan for Syria, see yesterday’s posting:  Why trust Al Qaida terrorists about the gas attack?


Does this mean that Donald Trump’s cruise missiles were fired to help the Al Qaida terrorists, the same group he blames for 9/11, who are fighting to overthrow the government of Syria?

Yes, that is exactly what the result of the U.S. military action is. The U.S. is actually waging war against the elected government of Syria, illegally, on behalf of terrorists, which the U.S. designated as terrorists in March 2017! This is a “big mistake” for President Trump (and the U.S.) and proves the veracity of the expression, “The War on Terror is really a War of Terror.” Read More »


Neo-Conned Again

April 7, 2017

DONALD TRUMP started a new war in the Middle East yesterday — exactly one hundred years after the U.S entered World War I and less than three months into his presidency. He launched airstrikes against Syria late in the day, breaking his campaign promise to avoid foreign interventions and to put America first. Reports of an alleged chemical attack by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Tuesday, an allegation which defies belief, were the cause, Trump said. There was no time for investigation, certainly not for the level of investigation needed before going to war. [See CNN anchor berate Congressman Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky) for saying the perpetrators are not yet known.]

Trump is the neo con-man that some of us have always suspected him of being.

The Crown of Thorns

April 5, 2017


Christ with Crown of Thorns, Johann Meinrad Guggenbichler; 1682

Christ with Crown of Thorns, Johann Meinrad Guggenbichler; 1682

Reflect then, Christian reader, that our divine Savior is crowned with sharp thorns, to punish on his own head all your sinful deeds, but more especially the wicked thoughts, by which you have offended God, and have defiled his divine image impressed upon your soul. Numerous thorns pierce, and torture his divine head, because we have harbored in our mind many bad thoughts of different kinds. Our thoughts against faith and against hope, our thoughts of presumption, or despair, impious and blasphemous thoughts against God, have produced the longest and sharpest thorns that torment the most holy head of our divine Savior. Our habitual dissipation of mind, our forgetfulness of God’s holy presence, our voluntary distractions in prayer, are the reeds with which, like his cruel executioners, we strike and more deeply press his thorny crown. Uncharitable thoughts against our neighbors, rash judgment, envy and jealousy against our fellow Christians, are the cruel thorns that torture our Savior’s head. Those frequent thoughts of pride/ambition, vain-glory; that hypocrisy, that habitual disposition to overreach, and deceive our fellow men, so common in human society at the present time, those desires of revenge, sensuality and lust, have produced that terrible thorny bush from which the Crown of Thorns has been formed, that pricks and torment the head of the incarnate Son of God.

Whilst, Christian reader, you are considering the sufferings of your Savior crowned with thorns, enter into your heart and examine therein what are the evil thoughts that more frequently occupy your mind. Conceive a sincere sorrow for them. Ask with profound humility your Savior’s pardon; and firmly resolve for the future to watch over your heart, and promptly to banish from your mind every imagination or thought that may be displeasing to God, and calculated to increase the sufferings of your loving Redeemer, crowned with thorns as the King of Sorrows. It is only in this practical way that we can render our spiritual reading, or our meditation on the Passion of our dear Lord, pleasing to his Sacred Heart, and profitable to our souls.

— Fr. G. Rossi, C.P., The Mystery of the Crown of Thorns, 1879


John Vennari on the New Paganism

April 5, 2017

JOHN VENNARI, a traditionalist Catholic writer, died yesterday at the age of 59. May he rest in peace. Here is an excerpt from Vennari’s book The New Paganism and the War against Life:

What is the New Paganism?

There have been great men and women in the recent past who have warned in advance against the rise of the godless and anti-human period of history in which we now find ourselves.

One of the most keen-eyed warnings came from the renowned Catholic historian Hilaire Belloc, in a magnificent essay he wrote in 1931 called “The New Paganism”. He makes this point: the central aspect of the Old Paganism was deep respect for tradition, and the defining element of the post-Christian paganism is a revolutionary contempt for Tradition. Belloc wrote:

“The Old Paganism was profoundly traditional. Indeed it had no roots except in Tradition. Deep reverence for its own past and for the wisdom of its ancestry and the pride therein were the very soul of the Old Paganism; that is why it formed so solid a foundation on which to build the Catholic Church, and that is also why it offered so long a determined resistance to the growth of the Catholic Church. But the New Paganism has for its very essence contempt for tradition and contempt for ancestry. It respects perhaps nothing. But least of all does it respect the spirit of ‘Our Fathers have told us’.”1

Throughout history, our fathers have told us to respect human life; that human life is precious, that it is a gift from God, that we have a duty to protect the life of the most weak and vulnerable; that we may not treat human life as if it were merely animal life. Our great Fathers – whether they be the Fathers and Doctors and learned men of the Church, or great philosophers such as Aristotle, or truly upright statesmen who at least accepted the natural law – have told us these things. And they have told us these things not because it all sounded pretty and noble, but because these things are true.

The New Paganism, however, has no respect for what our Fathers taught us; and the New Paganism certainly has no respect for what Our Father Who art in Heaven taught us in the Commandments, “Thou Shalt Not Kill”. The central tenets of the New Paganism come from the forces of Organized Naturalism, warned often by the Popes of the past, especially by Leo XIII in his encyclical against Freemasonry, Humanum Genus, and by Father Denis Fahey. Cardinal Pie of Poitiers explained in strong, clear language, the insidious nature of this Naturalism: [cont.]

Plaque with the Descent from the Cross (detail), 1320-1340

Let him take up his cross, the one that is his. Let this man or this woman, rarely to be found and worth more than the entire world (Prov. 31, 10-31), take up with joy, fervently clasp in his arms and bravely set upon his shoulders this cross that is his own and not that of another; his own cross, the one that My Wisdom designed for him in every detail of number, weight and measurement; his own cross whose four dimensions, its length, breadth, thickness and height (Eph. 3, 18), I very accurately gauged with My own hands; his own cross which all out of love for him I carved from a section of the very Cross I bore on Calvary; his Cross, the grandest of all the gifts I have for My chosen ones on earth; his Cross, made up in its thickness of temporal loss, humiliation, disdain, sorrow, illness and spiritual trial which My Providence will not fail to supply him with every day of his life; his cross, made up in its length of a definite period of days or months when he will have to bear with slander or be helplessly stretched out on a bed of pain, or forced to beg, or else a prey to temptation, dryness, desolation and many another mental anguish; his cross, made up in its breadth of hard and bitter situations stirred up for him by his relatives, friends or servants; his cross, finally, made up in its depth of secret sufferings which I will have him endure nor will I allow him any comfort from created beings, for by My order they will turn from him too and even join Me in making him suffer.

Let him carry it, and not drag it, not shoulder it off, not tighten it, nor hide it. Let him hold it high in hand, without impatience or peevishness, without voluntary complaint or grumbling, without dividing or softening, without shame or human respect. Let him place it on his forehead and say with St. Paul: “God forbid that I should glory save in the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ” (Gal 6, 14) Let him carry it on his shoulders, after the example of Jesus Christ, and make it his weapon to victory and the scepter of his empire (Is. 9, 16)

Let him root it in his heart and there change it into a fiery bush, burning day and night with the pure love of God, without being consumed.

The cross: it is the cross he must carry for there is nothing more necessary, more useful, more agreeable and more glorious than suffering for Jesus Christ.

Lenten Eating Contest and Eco-Nuns

Did this young woman benefit from having the ‘right’ to make her own ‘decisions?’ This is an accident of course, but infuriating. I’ve always hated those stupid eating contests. I think Lawrence Auster once said that the legacy of liberalism is a pile of dead young women; or something to that effect.

The Bogus “Equal Pay” Holiday

April 4, 2017

MARK J. PERRY writes at the American Enterprise Institute:

The American Association of University Women (AAUW) and the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) are major participants in the feminist propaganda machine that mobilizes forces every April and engages in statistical misrepresentations to publicize the annual feminist holiday known as Equal Pay Day. According to the NCPE, Equal Pay Day will fall on Tuesday, April 4 this year, based on a 20% unadjusted difference in median annual earnings for women and men in 2015 when absolutely nothing relevant is controlled for that would explain income differences like hours worked, marital status, number of children, education, occupation, and the number of years of continuous uninterrupted job experience. Therefore, Equal Pay Day on April 4 this year misleadingly represents how far into 2017 a typical woman will allegedly have to continue working to earn the same income that her male counterpart earned last year for doing the exact same job.

In fact, looking closely at statistics, it is clear that men are paid more as a group largely because they tend to work in less safe occupations (incurring a far greater on-the-job fatality and injury rate), work longer hours, take less time off, work in physically more demanding jobs and take fewer jobs with hours convenient to caring for children.

The public face of the “Equal Pay” campaign this year is Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg, who shamelessly contradicts herself in her article today in USA Today. She loads the beginning of the piece with misleading statements and then reverses these farther on in the propaganda piece, where most readers will probably have already moved on. She writes:

Today is Equal Pay Day. This means that on average, women in the United States had to work all of 2016 plus this far into 2017 to catch up to what men earned last year.

She later explains that more than half of the differential is due to occupation choices. The average woman does not face the average man in a losing battle for pay. Sandberg never acknowledges that many of these women supposedly struggling to catch up are also supported financially by men.

The Equal Pay campaign has always been based on patently fraudulent premises. But that doesn’t matter, folks! Feminism is not about reality or facts. It’s a form of mass psychosis. Millions of men, we should note, sit around and passively accept these lies and slanders against them. Sandberg writes:

A world where women ran half of our companies and countries and men ran half of our homes would be a better world.

Our companies would be more successful,


The economy has gotten dramatically better under feminism!

our laws more just,

In other words, more fathers will be arrested.

More fathers will be arrested — even though they are paid so much!

and our children would gain from their fathers’ care as much as they do from their mothers’.


In Feminist America, both Mom and Dad are working and children have “learning experiences.”

Thanks for the fantasies, Sheryl, you anti-gentile, Commie con artist and control freak! Only a very sick woman — only a loser — gets her kicks from making men and women hate each other. There’s a special circle in hell for people like you. It’s marked: EQUAL PAY. Read More »

Auster on the Fraud of Darwinism

April 3, 2017

LAST WEDNESDAY was the fourth anniversary of the death of traditionalist writer Lawrence Auster. A few friends of his and I met at his grave that day to remember him and pray for his eternal happiness. We enjoyed some counter-cultural conversation afterward in fitting memory of our departed friend, whose wit and wisdom are missed by many.

Here in belated recognition of this anniversary is an excerpt from one of the many excellent entries, this one from February 11, 2009, that Mr. Auster posted at View from the Right on one of his all-time favorite subjects — Darwinism. The philosophical errors of the Darwinian theory, he believed, could never be exhausted:

As they work themselves into a proper celebratory frenzy over the bicentennial of the birth of the man who, they fondly imagine, successfully murdered God and who is thus himself the ultimate god of modernity, the priesthood of the Darwinian cult are engaging in the same doublethink that I have frequently noted before in their periodic boasts of triumph. The doublethink consists in the fact that right in the middle of their assured, oh-so-confident, sweeping-aside-all-doubts declarations of the absolute, unquestionable truth of Darwinism, that truth that is “the bedrock of modern biology,” and indeed of modern civilization itself and of all that is good and decent, that truth that no one but low IQ backwoodsmen and Christian bigots dares deny, the Darwinists quietly but clearly let on that the core and essence of Darwinism—the evolution of new species by means of random genetic mutations and natural selection—has not been proved. Repeat: the Darwinians openly admit that Darwinism has not been proved. Yet such is the hypnotic power of the Darwinian ascendancy over men’s minds that even as the emperor strips himself naked before the populace, no one notices that he is doing this. Read More »


Perverse Ad

I am forwarding a print ad that I came across in the April 3, 2017 edition of People Magazine, page 85. My instant impression of the ad was that it was bizarre and weird. Yes, it got my attention but so would other methods, so why this? The girl in the ad could get injured by her sadistic brother, yet she smiles as if enjoying the abuse.

(The ad also reminds me of the so-called “pizzagate” picture of the little girl with her hands duct-taped to a table. The picture was taken presumably in a pizzeria.)

Four Years with Chaos Frank

March 31, 2017


IN THE ARTICLE “Four Years with Francis, Supreme Blasphemer of the Vatican,” the pseudonymous author Miles Christi writes of “Pope” Francis:

When it comes to referring to the sayings and the facts of Francis, it is impossible not to find blasphemies scattered everywhere, whatever the subject addressed or the action performed. If I have decided to dedicate an article to some of his numerous blasphemies, it has been with the precise pedagogical purpose of highlighting the most outstanding, so that Christians, becoming aware of the unspeakable malice and impiety of this foolish man, may escape his diabolical schemes and not be seduced by the false gospel which he preaches, nor by the adulterated Christ which he deceitfully presents to the world, shielding himself in the immense prestige and considerable moral authority conferred upon him by his investiture.

Christi provides ample evidence that Francis is not even a believing Catholic, let alone a legitimate pope to whom Catholics owe submission.
