Understanding the Meron ‘Death Trap’ – the facts

4May2021 https://www.rivkalevy.com/understanding-the-meron-death-trap-the-facts/

Even regular visitors to Meron have been struggling to understand how 45 people could be asphyxiated to death there.

***More important updates below***

UPDATE:

There is a new video with new footage of what happened, that needs careful analysis.

PLEASE GO AND SEE WHAT REALLY HAPPENED, HERE:

Slide17-Understanding the Meron ‘Death Trap’ – the facts

====

The timings on the slides below appear to be wrong – the crush built up much faster, and seems to have been caused by 10 policemen and at least one policewoman blocking the exit, with or without gates.

The footage is conveniently ‘cut’ at the crucial part that would show why people suddenly stopped on the stairs.

You can see it for yourself HERE:

https://www.mako.co.il/news-israel/2021_q2/Article-249099ac79d3971026.htm

====

I’d been poring over media accounts for three days, and still couldn’t really understand how this was meant to have happened. So yesterday morning, I grabbed my camera and decided I had to go and see things for myself, to see if that would bring a bit more clarity to the picture.

In this post, I’m going to first bring the cold, hard facts – as much as they are knowable, with so many big parts of the puzzle still missing.

And then maybe in a different post, I’ll tell you more about some of the interesting things that were going on up in Meron, and more of what I heard from some of the people there.

Ready?

Let’s do it.

====

Identifying where the deaths occurred.

I’ve seen so many pictures of stairs next to white sheet metal fencing – that I totally didn’t recognise. So, the first job was to go and actually find the place where the 45 Meron Martyrs were killed al kiddush Hashem.

(More on how that actually happened below, after we get the cold, hard facts set down).

The following stills come from THIS drone footage of Meron, shot on April 30th, 2021.

(I’m working on doing this as a short video, too, if I can figure it out – see the update below.)

====

That’s how it happened.

Now, we can make more sense of the videos I posted up here in previous articles. Let’s explain them clearly, so you really get what happened beyond the shadow of a doubt, and can’t be misled by any more MSM-government-sponsored lies and ‘spin’.

This video below first shows the exit that was blocked.

It also seems to show that one Border Policeman had enough of a neshama to start trying to rip down the metal sheeting right next to the blocked exit, to try to relieve the pressure and give people more space.

But notice other policemen standing at the bottom of the stairs, still holding the crowds back.

====

Next, you see the ‘river’ of visitors coming down the fenced-in path with the metal ramp.

I suspect that fencing was also put up around the sides just for this L’ag B’Omer, but I haven’t been able to confirm that yet.

But you can clearly see from the drone footage, above, that usually this area was all open air.

So why close it in?

====

Next, the video goes to an overhead view, looking down at the stairs from the building above it, where you can see how people have now ‘collapsed’ down the stairs and been crushed to death.

This occurred after the police removed the barriers blocking the exit, which caused hundreds of people to topple down on each other.

You can see one or two ‘regular’ police at this point trying to pull people out of the pile, together with a few first responders.

But all those big, burly ‘Border Police’ guys who were blocking the exit have now left the area.

Why didn’t they stay, to try to rescue more of the people who had been crushed and asphyxiated to death?

====

Now that we’ve pinned this information down, there are more questions to be answered.

According to this eyewitness account, below, two police pulled a double-gate across this exit at approximately 12:30am.

(The audio is very quiet, but if you can listen to what he’s saying, it’s very useful information.)

Meron Tragedy 2021 – Personal account of what I saw happening

====

The gate was still in place almost half an hour later, at approximately 1am.

That means that the police let the crush build up on the metal ramp for approaching half an hour before the deaths occurred, without making any public announcement that people should try to find a different exit.

Why?

====

UPDATE:

Menachem Engel, the guy in the video above, contacted me to make it clear that he is not saying and doesn’t know if the gates were still in place at almost 1am. I’m happy to include this information.

And I also want to include this information, from another eye-witness, that was reported in Hebrew HERE,  that the single exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex was blocked by 10 burly policemen, plus at least one policewoman who were pushing people back up the stairs and the ramp, just before the ‘disaster’ (in Hebrew):

https://go.bhol.co.il/31eLuS

====

Google translated snippet:

“[Q]uite a few dozen seconds after we passed the entrance to the path, a lot of policemen and at least one policewoman came to the entrance to the path and blocked the exit.

Anyone who knows this area at the time of L’ag B’Omer, this year and every year knows that police officers do not walk around in the mehadrin area at all [i.e. the area cordoned off for just men]… And certainly there are no policewomen in the whole area.

Suddenly at least 10 policemen appeared in one shot?!?!

They were at the ‘disaster’ long before the first responders and Magen Dovid Adam !! And after the disaster – most of them (not all!) did not reach out at all… they were not determined and urgent to help, to say the least.”

====

Another thing that Menachem Engel states – corroborated by many others – is that the Toldos Aharon plaza was unusually and uncomfortably crowded, and that he felt ‘trapped’ in the complex as soon as he entered it.

Other eye-witnesses have said that the police blocked other exits out the Toldos Aharon plaza, leaving ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ – the metal ramp – as pretty much the only exit out of the area.

According to the eyewitness above, he was told by a ‘mystery chassid’ to try to find another route out of the Toldos Aharon Complex because there was so much overcrowding at the blocked exit.

He only managed to do that because he was joined by a group of 40 yeshiva bochurs who managed to ‘fight their way out’ of the crowds to go up past the bleachers, and to exit via the area containing the ‘back bleachers’ at the top of this picture:

Slide1 Understanding the Meron ‘Death Trap’ – the facts

====

Let’s try to sum up the list of specific questions here, to keep this as simple as possible:

1.Why were all other exits out of the Toldos Aharon complex blocked off by the police?

2. Why was the only real exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex blocked by gates for half an hour, while more and more people joined the crush on the metal ramp? –

UPDATE: More information is coming out about how the exit was blocked. It could have been gates, initially, but it could also have been the group of 10 policemen, plus at least one policewoman, who showed up shortly before the ‘disaster’ and physically prevented the crowds from leaving the steps.

3. Who gave the order for that exit to be blocked?

4. Why was that order given?

5. Why was no public announcement made to tell people that the exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex had been blocked?

6. If you are going to tell me that the police closed the exit to prevent more people entering the plaza to ‘prevent overcrowding’, why wasn’t the gate set up at the top of the metal ramp, instead of by the bottom at the stairs?

7. Why was that whole area enclosed with white metal sheeting on the morning of L’ag B’omer, making a narrow, confined space even more narrow and confined?

(Especially in ‘Covid times’, when the authorities have been making a big distinction between ‘indoor’ and ‘outdoor’ areas?)

8. Why did the police refuse to acknowledge that they had blocked the main exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex – and instead tried to blame the disaster on a mythical ‘stampede’ that never happened?

9. Why, immediately after the disaster at 1am, did the police put a message out on the public announcement system that everyone should leave the Rashbi complex immediately – which only added to the crush at all the blocked exits, and prevented ambulances from being able to drive up to the site of the fatalities?

(That’s why we saw so many pictures of people being carried out by hand on stretchers, then taken a long way down the mountain by people running with them – the ambulances couldn’t get up to the site.)

10. What other structures were built, what other bottlenecks were created, what other exits were blocked by the police at Meron before L’ag B’omer, to create so much dangerous and unusual overcrowding in the area?

overcrowding in the area?

====

There are way, way more questions about what happened.

We’ll get to those another time.

But in this post, I’m focussing-in specifically on the circumstances that led to the deaths of those 45 Meron Martyrs.

I’ve learned from experience that it’s when we focus in on the details, the nitty-gritty, that the truth inevitably starts to shake out.

I know they say the devil is in the detail, but invariably, I’ve found that the truth is in the detail – and once you pin the details down, they just can’t spin their lies about what happened in quite the same way.

====

BH, we’ve made a lot of progress since Friday, in figuring out what really went on here.

Now, that this part of the equation is figured out, we can turn more of our attention to who made these deadly decisions, who enforced them – and who stood to benefit from a ‘mass casualty’ event in Meron this year.

Make no mistake: this time around all of these questions will be answered.

And the people responsible for the murder in Meron will finally be exposed.

====

UPDATE:

On the Ynet (fake…) news site they had this article, about the safety report about the Toldos Aharon complex ahead of L’ag B’Omer:

Snippet:

Meron event organizers ignored major safety report days before disaster

Report ordered organizers of the festivities at the Toldos Aharon compound, where the stampede occured, to have 4 passageways if the number of participants exceeds 9,000; 20,000 were inside when stampede occured but only one exit was open.

====

Meron-fire-and-rescue-services-reports

====

That Ynet report is trying to shift the blame for the deaths to the Toldos Aharon chassidut.

But what I want to know is, who was responsible for deciding there should be only one exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex?

I don’t believe that the Toldos Aharon chassidut would only want one exit in and out of their complex – how would that be helpful to them, and their followers?

So who made that decision, in stark contravention of this report that there should be at least 4 exits?

And then, who made the decision to close the only exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex, and who else signed off on it?

Once we know that, I think we’ll know a lot more.

====

UPDATE 2: THE VIDEO

In a minute and a half, you can now grasp what the MSM / government / police have all failed to explain to us over the last 4 days, namely how this ‘tragedy’ really occurred.

BH, I’m working on doing this in Hebrew, too, so the truth can get out there:

How the Meron disaster really happened

====

UPDATE 3:

I got this comment from the eyewitness in the video above, who wanted to make it clear that he doesn’t say / doesn’t know if the gates were still in place half an hour later.

I’m after the truth here, so I’m very happy to keep updating the information as more of it comes to light. And I’m very happy to see the new footage on Channel 12, that apparently shows there were no barriers.

Which means, of course, all these poor people on the steps suddenly stopped there for no reason at all, and voluntarily suffocated and crushed themselves to death….

Doesn’t it?

====

Menachem Engel says:(Edit)

Hi. I’m the guy in the video you posted in this article. I really want to make it clear that I state in the video that I dont know if the barriers were still up 30 minutes later. I don’t know why you would twist my words like that. New footage has come out tonight that shows there were no police barricades there. check channel 12 news. Thank you.

====

UPDATE 4:

This is in Hebrew, but Google translate does a good enough job of giving you the gist. It sets out in detail how the regular exits in and out of the ‘Toldos Aharon’ complex were blocked this L’ag B’omer, in the name of ‘Coronavirus Restrictions’.

While the Health Ministry put no limits – at all! – on the number of people travelling to Uman this year; and as far as I could see, there weren’t even the regular park n’ ride facilities in place this year to help regulate the crowds, what they did do is block off every exit to the ‘Toldos Aharon’ complex with fences, leaving just the ‘Shvil Reb Dov’ exit – which was known from previous years to be dangerously overcrowded, even with the other exits open.

https://hm-news.co.il/153013/

That article is apparently based on hundreds of eye-witness testimonies.

I was going to bring one of the comments on that article, which brings more information and raises a bunch more disturbing ideas, but I realised it’s making this post too long. So I will do a new post with that information instead, BH.

VIDEO OF POLICE BLOCKING THE EXIT IN MERON

This video is already being flagged as ‘inappropriate’ – the first stage to them trying to remove it. So, if you can’t view it on Youtube, below, I’m also uploading it straight on the site.

It’s very upsetting, to see how the police caused this situation to happen, be warned.

But we can’t duck the truth. We have to face it head on – because otherwise, they will just keep doing what they are doing to religious Jews in Israel.

And I don’t want to see any more people being killed.

The disaster in Meron video is horrific 45 Dead,30April2021-האסון במירון וידאו מחריד

====

THIS IS WHAT THEY WERE AIMING AT, ALL ALONG:

“We need to close the holy site and limit the number of people.”

The State of Israel is waging an all-out war against religious Jews, and our beliefs and practices.

It’s going after everything holy.

But from all this, something very good is going to sprout.

Soon.

JerusalemCats Comments:
The Police caused “Stampede” was like shouting Fire in a crowded Theater with all the exits locked and guarded by the Police. This was a Police Pogrom against the Haredim. The “Whitewashing”, intimidation and the destruction of evidence has started already. Videos have been posted of what has happened YouTube will take them down,

Arutz Sheva http://www.israelnationalnews.com/

‘Police came with fire in their eyes’

Hasidim who were at Meron deadly disaster blame police for incident in which 45 people were killed.

Arutz Sheva Staff, 02May2021 https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/305409

David, a hasid who arrived in Bnei Brak today from Meron, harshly criticized the conduct of the police, which he claimed led to the disaster in Meron in which 45 people were killed.

“The celebration [at Meron] has been going on for more than a century. It is impossible to say that the very existence of the event is what brought about this disaster,” David noted in his opening remarks

“In recent years we see that the police have decided that they are going to put an end to this event. They have decided to harass [those whom attend] the event, to make trouble. They arrived as early as noon, sprayed tear gas, made snake tracks. You could feel in the air that something was going to happen,” he claimed.

He said, “It may have been necessary for a physical usher, someone of ours, to technically say ‘come-in-do not come in.’ When a policeman sees a haredi person he enters a certain frame of mind, where instead of ‘yes’ or ‘no’ it is suddenly tear gas. Just as haredi ushers do not come to supervise football events and everyone understands the same thing at the Hilula of the Rashbi, where there shouldn’t secular policemen who do not have any idea what is going on or how things should be.”

Menachem, a hasid from Tzfat, told of a violent clash he had with police not long before the disaster, and claimed that the police who secured the incident “came here with fire in their eyes.”

“My nephews saw policemen standing here a minute before the incident,” Menachem added, blaming the police for the disaster “as soon as it became crowded people started to leave. There was nothing out of the ordinary. People shouldn’t say ‘this is from heaven.’ There was murder here. I don’t know whether it was malicious or accidental, I do not judge anyone, for that there are the professionals to decide. But we don’t understand why the police who were here are not being detained until the end of the proceedings. If I had been involved in an accident in any way, I would have been arrested until the end of the proceedings.”

On the back foot

Things are starting to fall apart, for the government and the MSM that serve them.

Rebbe Nachman talks about how the Tzaddik is a ‘bone in the throat’ of the sitra achra, that then causes it to ‘throw up’ all the good it swallowed from the beginning of time.

We have the zchut of starting to see that happen, in front of our faces.

In the merit of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, and the 45 murdered martyrs who were killed this L’ag B’Omer, in Meron.

====

One of my friends sent me a photo copy of a page in Aramaic from the ‘Idra Rabba’.

This explanation of what that it comes from Zissel:

The Idra Rabba is a section of the Zohar inserted into Parshas Naso where Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai gathers nine of his students to reveal Kabbalistic mysteries he had refrained from teaching until then. During the Idra three of the Sages passed away including Rabbi Yossi ben Yackov who was then buried at this location.

====

I’m reproducing it here, then I’ll explain why it’s so significant:

TheIdraRabbais a section of the Zohar inserted into Parshas Naso where Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai gathers nine of his students to reveal Kabbalistic mysteries he had refrained from teaching until then. During the Idra three of the Sages passed away including Rabbi Yossi ben Yackov who was then buried at this location.

====

The underlined parts speak of 45 holy souls who are killed on L’ag B’omer.

This was written 2,000 years ago.

I don’t understand Aramaic, so I’m trying to find someone to translate the whole page, but I was told that it also explains that these 45 souls are actually ‘soul sparks’ of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai himself.

I’ll confirm or amend this statement, once I find someone to translate it, BH.

But knowing this information already started to reassure me – greatly! – that there is a much bigger, greater, good plan going on here, behind the scenes, to dismantle the evil in the world.

====

The True Tzaddikim are the ‘bones’ in the throat of the sitra achra.

And the 45 holy souls who were killed al kiddush Hashem in Meron this year mark the turning point, where all the lies are going to crumble away, all the bad people are going to start exposing each other, and destroying themselves in the process – and revealed good is finally going to reign, both here and in Israel.

====

Over on the RavBerland.com site, they also had an excerpt of a shiur given over by the Rav on April 11, 2021 – almost 3 weeks ago – where he explained this:

There was a decree of annihilation – and Rabbi Shimon saved us

Here’s a snippet:

Now, I read about the Pressburg Yeshiva, that 60 years ago a bus turned over on the return from Meron [on L’ag B’omer], on the Rosh Pina road, on the bends, on the turns.

And the Rosh Yeshiva and the mashgiach were killed, and another 40 students were seriously wounded.

The Rosh Yeshiva and the mashgiach ascended straight to Gan Eden….

….In the merit of Rabbi Shimon, all the gezeirot (negative decrees) will be cancelled now.

There was a decree that all of Am Yisrael would be wiped out.

====

That excerpt comes from a much longer shiur that I actually read on Shabbat.

BH, more of it will be translated, because the Rav was talking about a horrible decree that couldn’t be spoken about, and how it’s a greater ‘sin’ to run over a cat than it is to crush a human being to death, and a bunch more ‘clues’ that clearly showed he knew what was coming down the pipe.

But the point is: all this terrible loss of life in Meron is already starting to turn around for the good.

How do I know that?

Well, I can see the strange stories that are starting to appear in the MSM about what happened in Meron, and I can smell the government’s fear in the air.

Here’s a couple of examples:

====

Exhibit 1:

Government, police planning to blame Supreme Court for Meron disaster

Here’s a snippet:

Officials working in the Ministry of Internal Security have apparently already consulted with the Ministry’s legal adviser and are planning to shift blame toward the Supreme Court, which prevented, they allege, the then-Finance Minister in 2013, Yair Lapid, from wresting control of the Meron holy site from the religious bodies supposedly in control of it….

Ministry officials are not the only people in fear of what an inquiry might reveal.

Mako writes that police officers involved in the disaster are already taking legal advice and gathering evidence with the aim of absolving themselves of all guilt. Mako suggests that the various other bodies involved in the management of the site are likely following suit.

Meanwhile, internal police inquiries as well as the Police Investigations Department (PID) are refraining from questioning those officers who were present at the scene.

So far, no permission has been given to order the officers to give testimony, apparently because the police are waiting to see if an independent commission of inquiry will be established…

====

Gotta love the justice in Israel!!!

They are only going to ask the policemen who deliberately blocked the exits in Meron to testify if they know an independent

commission of inquiry will be established.

But the point is this:

Rabbi Nachman told us that at the end of days, the demonic, satanic ‘talkers’ take each other out.

They launch an all-out war against each other, and that is finally how they disappear off the face of the earth, and revealed good starts to rule.

We are seeing that happen in front of our faces – and it’s not going to be pretty.

====

Exhibit 2:

Another piece of so-obviously-fake-news from the Yeshiva World News website, that would be hilarious – except that it’s trying to cover-up how 45 holy Jews were deliberately murdered in Meron.

Here’s the ridiculous story the YWN site is now spinning, on behalf of the anti-Torah government and police in Israel:

A man collapsed after suffering an apparent heart attack. Participants who saw this, screamed for help from the police and from the medical teams who were present. They attempted to pick up the man while at the same time they stopped the masses from coming down the passageway.

This is what caused the bottleneck and the eventual collapsing wave of the people trampling one another to death.

According to these same eye-witness reports, the police were attempting to stop the throngs of people from trampling the man who had collapsed and those trying to help him and for that reason they closed part of the passageway.

This version of events makes a lot of sense with regard to how things developed and how such a stampede was possible while all of the barriers collapsed.

====

Is there anyone – ANYONE – in the whole world, who can read this story and believe it for even a second?

Surely, even YWN readers will have to balk at accepting that ‘this version of events makes a lot of sense’.

There were no reports made of anyone having a heart attack.

There is no evidence of that from the livestream video that you can see below (Yakov – is it possible to re-copy a section of this to Brighteon too, to stop this crucial evidence of what was really going on in the Toldos Aharon compound from being ‘disappeared’?).

Watch Live 24 Hours Lag Ba’omer in Meron 2021 שידור חי מאתרא קדישא מירון – לג בעומר תשפא

The crucial section starts around 3hrs 37 minutes, and continues on for the next half an hour or so.

It shows there was no stampede.There was no ‘terrible overcrowding’ in the Toldos Aharon compound- no more than any other year, when five times as many people are in Meron – and that people have space to move around and to dance.

And it also shows NO-ONE HAVING A HEART ATTACK ON THE STANDS.

====

Do you see what the YWN story did?

It took the blame off the police, and put it on the chareidim who were supposedly ‘blocking the passage’ by trying to help the mythical-man-with-the-heart-attack.

Those wonderful police!!!

They only shut all the exits down in the death-trap tunnel they deliberately constructed as a crushing bottle-neck leading out of the Toldos Aharon complex to stop that poor (pretend…) man with a heart attack from being crushed!!!

That makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?

====

But all this is actually positive.

The lies being told now are so very big, you would literally need to be a brain-dead, lobotomised, soul-less ghoul of a person to believe them.

And Baruch Hashem – that’s not the real Am Yisrael.

====

Yesterday, my kid showed me a clip of an Israeli football player scoring a goal, then turning to the camera to make a ’45’ sign with his hands, and then to point at the heavens and make a ‘pray for them’ sign.

That guy wasn’t wearing a kippa.

He’s not ‘religious’.

But what happened in Meron is bringing the real Jewish ‘good’ out of so many people, so many neshamas, at a fundamental level, and starting to bring more and more of us together again.

From all background. Across all divisions. Breaking down all fake ‘political’ and ‘religious’ divides.

Am Yisrael Chai v’Kayam!!!

And the rule of evil is on its last legs.

====

UPDATE:

I went back up to Meron today, with my camera, to try and pin more of the facts of what went on down, and BH I will do a big write up with pictures and maps and even drone footage (thanks Ch!) to show exactly where the fatal ‘crush’ happened.

While I was there, there were a lot of conflicting stories and accounts that I was overhearing, but all were in agreement that there was a barrier put up by the police, and that is what led to people dying.

But then, the details get fuzzy again.

I will BH pin down what is definite tomorrow, BH.

====

Now, re the ‘Idra Rabba’ quote, there are a few comments below that say it has nothing to do with the 45 martyrs in Meron, and that they are not soul-sparks of Rabbi Shimon.

Each person is very welcome to have their own opinion about this.

Personally, I’m coming from a place that says that EVERYTHING is a message from Hashem, so if a recording went viral making that connection between this Idra Rabba and what just happened in Meron on L’Ag B’Omer, that it still some sort of ‘message’ from Hashem – and still gives comfort.

At least, to me.

But people are entitled to live in a world where everything is apparently ‘random’, and there are no hidden messages from Hashem, and we can’t understand anything about how He’s governing the world, so we just have to sit here and wait for the next ‘unknowable, unstoppable, inexplainable’ blow to fall.

Personally, that sounds like a really horrible way to live life, but each person can choose their own path.

====

UPDATE 2: On this Idra Rabba:

Chaim posted the following up in the comments section below, which captures a lot of what I felt but didn’t have the words to express, together with more pertinent information:

====

One thing people need to understand about the Zohar is that it’s NOT PSHAT. You don’t just translate it and think you understood it.

Rav Kaduri used to read the entire Idra Rabba on Shabbat and say he had just reviewed the entire Kabbalah, because everything is included in it. The whole order of the formation of the worlds is described in great detail in the Idra Rabba, and it takes someone of that level to really understand what is being conveyed. Sometimes concepts that appear bad are in fact good, like the evil Lavan alluding to the extremely exalted level of the Lavnunit which Yaakov Avinu was zoche to receive.

I spoke with a serious (and real) Rabbi who learns and teaches Kabbalah (not, of course, on the level of Rav Kaduri but still) about the whole Meron incident.

He said that at first this passage might appear disconnected. However, since this episode with the 45 soldiers happened at the END of the Idra, this yinian is directly related to the end of the Seder Hishtalshelut and the end of the Tikkunim of the worlds.

The 45 holy Jewish men, according to this Rabbi, did something akin to what the 10 martyrs did (not on their level, of course), which is elevating Mayim Nukvin in order to prevent a much greater catastrophe.

He said, it was supposed to have many more dead, but because of the holiness of the day, the fact they were in Meron, and that they were holy, accepting the divine decree, they averted it.

This goes in line with the fact that one of the most fundamental rules of Kabbalah is that two concepts that have equal gematria are certainly connected, even more so since they appear on the same day (Lag Baomer and the Daily Zohar).

So the snippet brought here is ENTIRELY RELATED to what we are experiencing here at the END of times. The true meaning, however, we can’t know yet.

Also, 45 is Gematria Gimel Aleph Vav Lamed Heh = Geulah.

Next, another commentator shared a first hand video of someone who was there, explaining what he say in English.

It’s quiet audio, so pretty hard to hear, but still very worth the effort.

Meron Tragedy 2021 – Personal account of what I saw happening

If anyone has an email for him, or phone number, can you please let me have it via the contact form here?

I want to double-check a few things.

BH, the truth of what really happened will come out.

One thing the eye-witness said which I hadn’t thought of is that even though the overall numbers were much lower than usual, there were more people there earlier, because L’Ag B’Omer fell on a Thursday night, leading into Shabbat.

Another thing he said is that there WAS terrible overcrowding in the Toldos Aharon compound – although it doesn’t look like that on the livestream, posted above.

So, I want to try to check a few more of these details out in depth.

Tov, tomorrow I will post up the pictures and maps, so we will hopefully all have a better idea of what actually happened, and what really caused it.

Meron: The Agreement

In this penultimate part of the series about the Meron atrocity, we’re going to take a look at who signed off on what.

Because while the people who were operating the crematoria, and policing the gas chambers, were undoubtedly cruel and sadistic, they were still just murderous scum who were ‘only following orders’.

Same thing here.

Over the last few posts, we’ve been building up a picture of what was really going on in Meron that shows clearly that ‘blocking the exit’ by AREA 41 was only the final coup de grace in a meticulously planned operation to mass murder hundreds, and probably even thousands of Jews.

So now, let’s take a look at what ‘agreements’ were made; who signed off on what, to see if we can get an idea of whose orders were being followed, that terrible night in Meron.

With God’s help, let’s do this.

====

EXHIBIT 1:

The text below is a translation of THIS news story, that appeared on the ‘Bhol Chareidi’ news site, on April 29, 2021, the day before L’ag B’omer:

 

Government-agreements

====

Here’s a little of what it says:

(To ensure we have clarity, I will put the original Hebrew, then my English translation underneath.)

שעות לפני פתיחת אירועי הילולת הרשב”י במירון מפרסם פרויקטור הקורונה נחמן אש את המתווה המלא לאירועי ל”ג בעומר במירון תשפ”א. 

במסמך שהגיע לידי ‘בחדרי חרדים’ עולה כי בדיון שהתקיים אמש בהשתתפות שר הבריאות אדלשטיין, שר הפנים דרעי והשר לביטחון פנים אמיר אוחנה שם סוכם על מתווה האירוע בהר מירון על בסיס עבודת המטה שהתקיימה בין הגורמים הרלבנטיים בשבועות האחרונים.

בדיון סוכם שהמרכז הארצי לניהול המקומות הקדושים ומשטרת ישראל יעשו ככל הניתן על מנת ליישם את המלצת משרד הבריאות כדלקמן:

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

Just hours before the opening of the celebrations of the hiloula of the RASHBI in Meron, Corona Tzar Nachman Ash publicizes the full outline for the celebration of L’ag B’omer in Meron, 5781.

A document obtained by Behadrei Haredim states that in a discussion held last night with the participation of Health Minister Edelstein, Interior Minister Deri and Internal Security Minister Amir Ohana, the outline of the celebration on Mount Meron was agreed upon, based on the work done between the relevant parties in recent weeks.

At the meeting, it was agreed that the National Center for the Management of Holy Places and the Israel Police will do everything possible to implement the Ministry of Health’s recommendations as follows:

====

Let’s sum things up as we go along, as this is probably going to be an important post, with a lot of vital information.

We are being told here that the ‘health’ guidelines for how L’ag B’omer should be conducted this year, 5781, was agreed upon by the following ministers:

Yuli Edelstein, Minister of Health

Aryeh Deri, Minister of the Interior

Amir Ohana, Minister of Internal Security,

Nachman Ash, the ‘Coronavirus Tzar’.

And of course, the whole thing then went to Netanyahu for his agreement.

These politicians then tasked the police, and the  National Center for the Management of Holy Places, with implementing these dangerous ‘health’ guidelines – with deadly results.

====

The police we’ve covered in other posts, and their part in implementing the murder in Meron is obvious.

But let’s take a look at the ‘National Center for the Management of Holy Places‘, to see what we can learn about that organisation.

====

THIS article appeared on the horrible YNET site, shortly after the atrocity in L’ag B’omer.

 

Joseph-Shwinger-YNET

====

Here’s a relevant (translated ) snippet:

Going underground: Director General of the Center for the Development of Holy Places has remained silent since the Meron disaster.

Joseph Schwinger, director of the Center for the Development of Holy Places, has been the liaison between all the bodies involved in organizing the celebration for 20 years…

Around two hours before the terrible disaster in Meron, Yosef Schwinger, the director of the Center for the Development of Holy Places, and the person most identified with [organising] the hiloula of the RASHBI, removed responsibility [for the event] from himself.

[He said in interview]:

“The one who is responsible for operations in the field is the Israel Police, and it’s forbidden to let them run away from this matter.”

====

Doesn’t it strike you as odd, that TWO HOURS before the fatal crush in Meron, this guy was being interviewed live on TV blaming the police, and saying they were responsible?

Ynet explains this very strange occurrence like this:

“It is likely that Schwinger, nicknamed the “Meron Chief of Staff”, already felt something was wrong at the time. “I’m already waiting to get to the next day,” he said, and told [the interviewer] that he himself had been buffeted by all the crowds of people who were filling every spot in the grave complex.

“Children are almost being crushed, it’s a very unpleasant spectacle,” he said.

====

But as soon as the atrocity actually happened, Schwinger dropped off the radar.

So, we have the ‘Meron Chief of Staff’, head of the Center for the Development of Holy Places for 20 years, clearly aware that something bad is in the offing two hours before the fatal crush occurred – and he does nothing about it.

To be fair, we all know that all these so-called ‘religious Jews’ in the government are just window-dressing, with no real power. They are just ‘following orders’, same as everyone else.

They are the PM’s ‘religious-looking’ poodles, whose job is to keep persuading the religious public in Israel that they really do have some political power, someone in government who is really looking out for them.

But of course, Meron clearly showed us all that’s a total lie.

Let’s continue.

====

Here’s what else we can learn from that YNET article:

  • Schwinger is Aryeh Deri’s right hand man – and has been for 20 years.
  • Schwinger is the liaison between the police, the fire brigade, MDA and the other bodies involved in the L’ag B’omer celebration, and participates in their joint work.
  • He also gets an annual budget of about NIS 15 million, which is entirely dedicated to the L’ag B’omer celebration.
  • Schwinger doesn’t report to the Religious Affairs ministry, he reports directly to Deri, and the Center for the Development of Holy Places has none of the regulatory oversight you’d expect.

====

Let’s quote this next bit directly from YNET, Hebrew original first, then my translation:

השיטה הזו אפשרה למרכז להתנהל כאקס-טריטוריה גם בכל הנוגע לכספים. גורם בוועדת הכספים סיפר שמעולם לא היה פיקוח על האופן שבו חולקו מיליוני השקלים שהועברו למרכז לטובת ההילולה במירון. “שכונה”, אמר זאת הגורם. בניגוד לרוב הרשויות הממשלתיות, המרכז אינו מקבל תקציב רק מהמדינה אלא רשאי לגייס תרומות. “רק שלא ברור לאן הולך הכסף הזה”, אמר גורם אחר.

====

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

This shita enabled the Centre to operate as an ‘extra-territorial’ body, also in relation to funds.

A source in the Finance Committee said that there was never any supervision of the way in which the millions of shekels transferred to the Centre were distributed in relation to the celebration in Meron….

Unlike most government authorities, the Centre doesn’t only receive a budget from the state, but is also allowed to raise donations. “It’s just not clear where that money is going,” another source said.

====

Where it clearly WASN’T going was into improving the basic infrastructure of the site in Meron, for the pilgrims.

But that’s a post for another time.

I want to point out one more thing, that Schwinger had apparently been warning for years that the hiloula in Meron was not being managed in a safe way.

Why nothing was done about that is also a post for another time, but it brings us back to the point that the ‘religious Jews’ in the government here are just paper tigers. They are following ‘orders from above’, same as everyone else.

====

I was also really shocked to learn which ministers were supporting a full Independent State Commission into the atrocity, and who wasn’t.

Again, from YNET:

“Ynet contacted all government ministers to understand their position regarding the establishment of a State Commission of Inquiry.”

Most of the MKs who wanted a State Commission were from Blue and White, including Benny Gantz.

Nearly all of Likud, bar Tzachi Hanegbi, WANTED THE POLICE TO INVESTIGATE THEMSELVES.

And ‘religious’ ministers Aryeh Deri, Yaakov Litzman and  Rafi Peretz either dodged the question, or went totally underground.

This is so mind-boggling…. 45 people are murdered by police actions in cold blood in Meron, and our so-called ‘religious’ MKs simply don’t care about getting to the truth of what really happened?!

Why are they so scared of the truth being revealed?

====

So now, it’s time to turn our attention to ‘whose orders’ were being followed, that night in Meron.

There is an effective ‘dictatorship’ occurring in Israel – and this is has been going on for years.

There is one key person making the crucial decisions in this country, and that person then finds ‘patsies’ to hide behind, so there is some built-in ‘plausible deniability’.

I’m not mentioning names, but you all know who I’m talking about here.

And that person themselves is ‘taking orders’ from people behind the scenes, who really don’t have the Jewish people’s best interests at heart.

Let’s continue with the story of Meron.

====

While I was trawling through a million-and-one sites that last few weeks, trying to piece together the real story of Meron, I came across THIS blog site.

There, I read a weird reference translated from the Hasifot.com website about something called the ‘Pima police’, who were alleged to have been operating in Meron, on the day of atrocity.

This is the relevant snippet:

A commenter on Telegram, Becky Aloni, stated:

A commenter on Telegram, Becky Aloni, stated

“זה היה מתוכנן מאוד הם רצו להקרות ליהודים מי שולט פה כי רוב היו שוטרי משטרת ההסדר העולמי “פימא

“It was very planned they wanted to happen to the Jews who control here because most were policemen from the global police force Pima.”

I don’t know what “Pima” is, but were there people acting as police in Mt. Meron who were bad actors?

====

Well, my atuned journalist nose for ‘news’ started twitching when I read that, and I started trying to track down these ‘Pima police’, who were apparently in Meron this year.

I turned up nothing, nada, in my search for ‘Pima police’.

But then, I realised that the Hebrew had been mis-translated, and that the woman was really talking about ‘FEMA police.’

All of a sudden, things got interesting again.

But was there any demonstrable connection – at all – between the State of Israel and FEMA?

(For those of you who don’t already know, FEMA stands for ‘Federal Emergency Management Agency’.

Here‘s their website – and this agency has been figuring large in nefarious ‘New World Order’ type scenarios for decades.)

====

So, I type in ‘FEMA and Israel’ – and very quickly, I get to this, from March 25, 2020:

https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Israels-NEMA-to-work-with-FEMA-in-the-fight-against-coronavirus-622315

====

Here’s the relevant snippet:

Israel’s National Emergency Management Authority (NEMA) and its American Counterpart, FEMA, have established a cooperation mechanism to fight the coronavirus pandemic, Israel’s Defense Ministry announced on Wednesday.

According to a statement released by the defense ministry, the two agencies held their first joint discussion on Tuesday night with representatives of the health ministries of both countries, the National Security Council (NSC), US Department of Homeland Security and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). <

The discussion, which was part of the international cooperation initiative led by NEMA, was led by the Head of the Cooperation and Assistance Unit in NEMA, Mr. Kobi Wimisberg, Director of the International Department of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Ashi Shalmon, and the Head of the Foreign Policy Department in the NSC, Dr. Avner Golov. 

====

How about that.

Barely a year ago, FEMA and Israel’s NEMA (which I’d never even heard about, before this article) make an agreement to start ‘working together’ to ‘fight Coronavirus’.

In Meron this year, a whole bunch of people are mass murdered in the name of ‘Coronavirus regulations’ put in place by the Ministry of Health, and signed off on by Yuli Edelstein, Aryeh Deri, Amir Ohana, Nachman Ash, and of course, Benjamin Netanyahu.

All year, the State of Israel has been actively targeting the chareidi community in Israel as being ‘disease spreaders’ and ‘vectors of infection’, and openly demonising them in the press, and treating Chareidim as second-class citizens – also in the name of ‘fighting Coronavirus’.

After months of closing down every venue, every gathering, every religious place, the State of Israel suddenly decides to open up Meron for L’ag B’omer, with absolutely no limitations on the numbers of people attending.

And then, after a day replete with awful police brutality and life-threatening fences and over-crowding, 45 people ‘coincidentally’ die when the one remaining exit out of the Toldos Aharon complex is shut down by the police, following ‘orders from above.’

Then very soon after, we’re all bounced into another new ‘war’ to take our mind off investigating who gave those orders, and what really happened in Meron.

====

If you go HERE, you’ll find the official press release put out by Israel’s Ministry of Religious Affairs, about L’ag B’omer this year.

There, you’ll learn that the government was apparently expecting half a million people to attend the Meron festivities this year.

Way more than the 200,000 who actually tried to attend.

Here’s another snippet from that press release:

Seven government ministries are partners in preparing the celebration. 

This year, the Ministry of Religious Affairs will budget the celebration with about NIS 15.5 million, the Ministry of Internal Security, which took care of the influx of about 5,000 police officers who will secure the many immigrants. The police are equipped with modern technology.

The Ministry of Transportation, which allocates about 4,000 buses, which will make about 7,000 round trips….

The Ministries of Health and Justice were also partners in the discussions around the revelry.

====

Let’s just head back to the ‘guidelines‘ for Meron that were put out by Nachman Ash, on April 29th, 2021 – the same day this press release came out on the website of the Ministry of Religious Affairs.

Translated snippet, below:

1. Transport only or by shuttles from the parking lots. There will be no restriction on getting to the mountain area – anyone who wants to get there can do so.

2. Across the mountain, the existing crowd restrictions will apply – 20 people in a closed space and 100 people in an open area.

3. It was agreed that the lighting area would be conducted according to a special layout for the “tav yarok” (‘green passports’):

A. The organized ascent to the fires will be made by buses, which can only be used by those with a “green passport”, i.e. those who will be vaccinated and recovered, or with negative PCR tests up to 72 hours before the event, as coordinated by the Holy Places Administration and the Israel Police.

B. There will be no more than 3,000 people next to each lighting.

C. There will be three lightings in parallel – for a total of up to 9000 people at one go.

D. There will be up to 4 rounds of lighting.

E.  It was agreed and clarified that the “green passport” will not be checked at the entrance to the event.

====

How many glaring contradictions can 10 sentences of text contain?

On the one hand, they said:

“There will be no restriction on getting to the mountain area – anyone who wants to get there can do so.”

And the government was clearly expected half a million people to show up, as evidenced by the news release on the Ministry of Religious Affairs’ website.

But, with the next breath, they said:

“[E]xisting crowd restrictions will apply – 20 people in a closed space and 100 people in an open area” – which was clearly totally unrealistic and unworkable, right from the start.

====

Next, they said that people would only be allowed to board the buses to come to Meron, and to attend a bonfire, if they could show a ‘green passport’.

But then they contradicted themselves again by saying:

“The “green passport” will not be checked at the entrance to the event.”

And also, even having just 3,000 people per bonfire clearly contravened the Health Ministry’s own guidelines that shouldn’t be more than “100 people in an open area.”

====

This ‘agreement’ for Meron was a total farce.

It was designed to publicise a bunch of rules that were totally unrealistic, to guarantee that ‘when things went wrong’, it would be so easy to point the finger at the pilgrims for ‘not following the rules’.

And in the meantime, the authorities went all out to make sure L’ag B’omer was going to teach the chareidim a lesson they’d never forget, this year in Meron.

====

Let’s stop there.

I know this isn’t one of my more polished posts -I’m feeling pretty weird today, honestly, and that’s reflecting in my writing.

But I thought it was important to get more of this information out there, including the link between Israel’s ‘NEMA’, and the USA’s ‘FEMA’, and how that may also have something to do with what happened at Meron this year.

I’m sure there is much more that could be said about all this, but I’m going to leave it here for now.

The next post will focus on a spiritual response to Meron.

If more information surfaces in the meantime, I will share it with you, BH, and I will also try to write a conclusions post, to make it easier for readers to share the key facts we’ve discovered over the last 2 weeks.

But otherwise, I’m done for now.

You voted for ‘frum yidden’ – and you got Netanyahu

Uman-remember-this

Back in September 2020, against all the odds, I found myself in Uman for Rosh Hashana.

***Updates Below***

My blog had been hacked within a few days of me arriving, so I ended up writing about what was going on for the RavBerland.com site, HERE.

Towards the end of my stay there, when it was a day before Rosh Hashana, and it was obvious that despite all the effort, all the contortions, to follow the ‘Coronavirus Rules’ in Uman as set out by the ISRAELI government, they weren’t going to let anyone else into Uman, a bunch of leaflets got dumped all over the floor of Pushkina Street.

====

Here’s what they said:

*Voted for Shas or Gimmel (United Torah Judaism)? You got Bibi and Gamzu, who chased after, with anti-semitism and cruelty, the Rosh Hashana of Rabbenu in Uman. Breslov chassid: remember, and don’t forget!

====

*On the way to Uman for Rosh Hashana 5781: Thousands of Breslov chassidim experienced 20 days of exile and suffering in Belarus. And the ‘chareidi’ leaders in the Knesset, Deri, Litzman and Porush stayed silent. The chareidi newspapers, HaDerech, HaMevasar, HaModia, totally and utterly ignored the anti-semitic persecution of Breslov Chassidiut. Until when?? Breslov chassid: remember, and don’t forget!

====

* Myriads of Breslov Chassidim are pointing an accusing finger against the Chareidi parties, who abandoned us, and our request to fulfill the will of Rabbenu, our teacher, his merit should protect us, amen, to come to him on Rosh Hashana. And even, [they] joined in with the wicked, cruel, anti-semitic persecution, that was without parallel, at the hands of Bibi Netanyahu and the members of his government. It won’t be forgotten, and it won’t be forgiven!

====

* Deri, Litzman and Porush! Myriads of Breslov Chassidim have a pained, broken and ripped heart, from the decrees of Netanyahu and Gamzu. How could you totally ignore what was going on? Breslov chassid: Remember, and don’t forget!

====

When I wrote about all this back in September – how the ‘chareidi’ politicians, the ‘chareidi’ papers, the ‘chareidi’ movers and shakers totally turned their backs on thousands of pilgrims to Uman – and sided with the anti-semitic, evil government which was overtly and covertly persecuting them – I got some flack for that.

“Deri got you in to Uman….” I was told.

“UTJ went to bat for you. They did everything they could,” I was told.

I didn’t believe it then.

And I certainly don’t believe it now.

====

I’m totally a-political.

I’m not a leftist, or a rightist. I don’t vote. I believe all politicians are totally corrupt, and that the political system is a sideshow, a ‘distraction’ to make you and me feel like we really have some say in what’s going on.

Really?

Every single politician is bought and paid for.

Part of the system of ‘control from the top’. Anyone who can’t or won’t be ‘controlled’ doesn’t last very long, or get very far.

Politics is a dirty business, lest we forget, and just having a beard and a rebbe doesn’t change that.

====

So, I switched on my PC for the first time in days, and I saw this article that my friend sent me, from the Times of Israel:

Forty-five people died at Meron. Why are Haredi parties blocking a probe? 

WHY are they blocking an independent State Commission?s

The possible answers to that are terribly disturbing for ‘frum Jews’ like you and me – that’s why we have to keep fighting the tendency to shove all this under the carpet, and run away from it.

We have to look this monster in the face, for the 45 people who died in Meron – and also for ourselves.

====

Then, I read all these statements by ‘frum politicians’ trying to slay any opposition to Netanyahu and ‘the right bloc’ – and honestly, I am totally sickened by them.

I sit here, I put two and two together – and I understand that all these people are really the same. They are serving the same god – i.e. themselves, and their own vested interests – except one group has a beard and a rebbe, and the other group doesn’t.

45 people were deliberately murdered in Meron, on orders that came straight from the top.

And here we have ‘frum yidden’ who are not only going all out to cover that up, they are also actively praising the person who ultimately gave those orders as ‘the savior of Israel’.

====

uman-breslov poster

uman-breslov poster

Let’s update the stuff from Uman, for Meron:

* Myriads of frum Jews are pointing an accusing finger against the Chareidi parties, who abandoned us, and our request to fulfill the will of Rabbenu, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, our teacher, his merit should protect us, amen, to come to him on L’ag B’omer – in a safe and respectful manner.

And even, [they] joined in with the wicked, cruel, anti-semitic persecution, that was without parallel, at the hands of Bibi Netanyahu and the members of his government, that resulted in 45 people being murdered in a crush that was deliberately created by the police at the bottom of the ‘Reb Dov Shvil’ stairs.

It won’t be forgotten, and it won’t be forgiven!

====

I know it’s painful.

I know it’s so, so disturbing.

But the rot here goes so very deep, in every direction.

====

Yesterday night, I had a very powerful dream, where the atrocity at Meron was being ‘recreated’ – i.e. the same thing tried again, except in a different location.

I watched as all these ‘bad actors’ pretended to be this person and that person, all following their script, all playing their part in a perfectly-choreographed ‘drama’ that was again designed to kill as many frum Jews as possible.

Except this time, in my dream, someone sounded the alarm.

====

Someone went around telling all the innocent members of the public that there were demons in our midst, ‘dressed up’ to look a certain way to fool the public, but who were really just ‘bad actors’, playing their part in trying to trap, injure and kill religious Jews.

So, when those ‘bad actors’ showed up with their gates, and their blueprint for how to crush more Jews to death – we fought back.

We stood up to them.

We didn’t just ‘roll over’ and go along with what the ‘Police Actors’, and the ‘Politician Actors’, and yes, the ‘Rebbe Actors’ told us.

And  as soon as we did that, they – and the threat they really pose to Torah Jews and Judaism itself – disappeared just-like-that.

It was a good dream.

It came to teach a very important message.

====

Last week, one of my kids was a sadranit (usher) at a wedding for one of the big chassidic Rebbes, that got moved to the sports arena in Jerusalem, because it was ‘safer’ after what happened when the bleachers collapsed at the Karlin-Stolin shul in Givat Ze’ev.

She came home very disturbed by the whole experience.

She told me there were 10-11,000 people in the Arena – and every single one of them had a ‘Green Passport’ to flash, together with their entrance ticket.

My daughter has been an usher for quite a few different events the last few months, and even with ‘secular’ crowds, there is always a large contingent that doesn’t have a ‘Green Passport’.

And they are always let in, quietly, one way or another.

====

But that night, there was not a single person who wasn’t waving a ‘Green Passport’ to show they’d been cheerfully ‘vaccinated’ in her face.

She asked someone what was going on, and she was told:

The Rebbe said everyone needed to get a ‘Green Passport’ in order to come to the wedding, so we all did it.

Just like that.

Apparently with no questions asked.

====

Moshe Leon, the Mayor of Jerusalem, was guest of honor at the wedding.

And my daughter told me that all night, there were massive adverts going on all over the place for the different kupot, or health funds, that exist in Israel.

When she asked someone what was going on, she got told:

How do you think we pay for all of this?

Ah.

Big Pharma and the Ministry of Health are funding chassidic weddings in Jerusalem.

That starts to explain so much, doesn’t it?

====

The rot goes so very deep, and it can’t be labelled as a problem just for ‘secular’ people, or ‘leftists’.

Those ‘bad actors’ exist all over the place, they are on every side of ‘the argument’ – and usually, they are the ones who are leading all the machloket, and hatred of ‘the other’.

====

I have so much more to say on this subject.

But I’ve said enough for now.

We need to stop making excuses for ‘bad actors’ just because they have beards and rebbes.

When things don’t make sense – when they seem wrong, bad or dangerous – we need to find our courage and our voices, and to start speaking up and questioning what is really going on.

Pikuach nefesh – saving a soul, saving a life – is a massive mitzvah in the Torah.

There are people in the world who are mamash trying to kill us, just for wanting to live an authentic Torah life, and just for wanting to serve God and to believe in our True Tzaddikim.

And there are people with beards and rebbes who are ‘in bed’ with those evil people, and following the scripts they are being given to recite, to manipulate and control the people who believe they are really ‘frum yidden’.

But this time, when the gates go up again – when the bleachers ‘fall down’ again – we need to push back with all our might.

Remember this. And don’t forget.

====

UPDATE:

Yesterday, I went to see a good friend in Bet Shemesh I haven’t seen for ages.

We were talking about what happened at Meron, and she told me the story of her gannenet’s brother. (A gannenet is a kindergarten teacher.)

That brother had died in the crush at Meron.

People then came to his shiva, and explained how that brother had pulled them out of the crush, and saved their lives.

But then somehow, he was taken in an ambulance to hospital where he somehow – inexplicably – died.

Not only that, the hospital / Abu Kabir then refused to release his body to the family for two whole days.

My friend isn’t a news junkie like yours truly, but she found something about this whole situation with the gannenet’s brother terribly disturbing.

====

When I was discussing this with another friend, and telling her how Abu Kabir was refusing to hand over the autopsy results on the people who died to Lahav 443 – the police agency that is supposedly investigating what happened in Meron – my friend told me:

But we don’t do autopsies in Israel.

And I just looked at her incredulous.

Because, of course that’s what they were doing in Abu Kabir.

With or without the families’ consent, because don’t you know?

We live in a dictatorship, where things like ‘free choice’ and ‘human rights’ actually don’t exist, and especially not for religious Jews.

====

There are some very disturbing implications here, for how Zaka, and United Hatzolah are really operating hand-in-hand with the government, to do things that should not be done, according to Torah law.

(In case you didn’t know, Magen Dovid Adom is a government agency, just with a different name, so OF COURSE they are serving the State of Israel’s agenda. But United Hatzolah and Zaka are meant to be ‘independent’ charities. In theory.)

====

When I went back to Meron, I realised two things about United Hatzolah:

  1. There is a camera mounted on the wall of the ‘United Hatzolah’ command centre, directly at the bottom of the Reb Dov Shvil steps, were 45 people were deliberately suffocated to death behind a police barrier that the police are still claiming doesn’t exist.

That camera is pointed straight up the enclosed ‘alley’ built by the Ministry of Health especially for this year’s L’ag B’omer, and it for sure has footage of exactly how the exit was blocked, when, and by who – and the results of that action.

We know the police went through Meron disabling all the “independent” CCTV cameras in Meron the day before L’ag B’omer.

My gut is telling me that the United Hatzolah camera was still operating, and has a very important story to tell.

I want that footage to be made public.

====

2) The second thing I realised about ‘United Hatzolah’ is in plain view – and very disturbing.

And it is this:

That killer crush occurred RIGHT NEXT TO THEIR ‘COMMAND CENTRE’ IN MERON.

You see that brown / grey structure in the picture below, roofed with white sheeting?

That’s the permanent ‘United Hatzolah’ central command post in Meron.

Meron Picture-of-double-gate-morning-after-Area-42

permanent ‘United Hatzolah’ central command post in Meron.

====

The United Hatzolah ‘command centre is right at the bottom of those stairs, where 45 people died.

This makes it even more incredible to me, that a fatal crush developed over the course of 10 minutes – and it took 10 minutes before United Hatzolah ‘arrived on the scene’ to start helping people, and to put the call out about what going on.

How is this even possible?

Were the ‘United Hatzolah’ people in central command asleep, as that killer crush occurred right outside their window?

Why didn’t they get involved immediately, to force the police to remove the gates and release the suffocating pressure on the crowd?

How could ‘trained first-aiders’ not recognise what was developing, literally before their eyes, and NOT CALL FOR HELP FOR TEN MINUTES?

====

And then there are more first-hand accounts, like THIS, sent to me by one of my readers, written by a mother who had several children caught up in events at Meron, including by those stairs:

When I checked the news Sunday morning, it was like reading about a completely different event than the eyewitness reports I heard.

What those attending all said – that I didn’t see discussed at all in the English news – was that the sole exit from the Toldos Aharon hadlaka was blocked by a gate put up by the police. At the same time that more and more people were allowed in at the entrance, no one could get out, leading to a deadly crush and numerous people dying of suffocation.

====

Here’s another snippet from those eye-witness accounts:

When the announcement was made that people had died, the atmosphere at Meron changed in an instant. All music and dancing ceased immediately, replaced by tehillim, crying, screaming. Everyone was ordered to leave – at least 100,000 people.

But there was no plan, no clear evacuation directions. People were told to go in one direction and ran there, to be told they had to go in the other direction and then ran in that direction.

No cars were allowed in, no buses were allowed in. There was almost no cell coverage, people couldn’t call for help, look up directions, or contact family members whom they were separated from.

====

Whatever else the 5,000 police assigned to Meron were doing that night, ‘helping people’ and ‘maintaining safety and order’ was not on the priority list.

====

Dear readers, this is still only the tip of the iceberg.

Why are our ‘chareidi’ politicians – and the ‘religious leaders’ who are backing them – trying to quash an independent State Commission into Meron?

Why is it that a month on, the police haven’t even questioned the policemen and women who were directly involved in the incident, nor any other official?

This from HERE:

Kikar HaShabbat news site has stated that thus far the police are just conducting checks and have not yet investigated any police officer or official.

====

If all this isn’t setting off the ‘massive cover up’ alarm, then I don’t know what will.

The State of Israel – and all the ‘frum yidden’ who are working hand-in-glove with it, despite appearances to the contrary – want this story buried and forgotten about.

Because when the truth comes out, we’re all going to understand what we are really dealing with, and how much moral corruption of every stripe exists on all sides of this equation.

But the blood by those stairs in Meron is literally boiling.

And this story is not going to just ‘go away’, until real justice has been done, and those responsible for the murder in Meron are exposed, and brought to justice.

Pew:What happens when Jews intermarry?

By and
November 12, 2013 http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2013/11/12/what-happens-when-jews-intermarry/

American Jews have been debating the impact of intermarriage for decades. Does intermarriage lead to assimilation and weaken the Jewish community? Or is it a way for a religion that traditionally does not seek converts to bring new people into the fold and, thereby, strengthen as well as diversify the Jewish community? The new Pew Research Center survey of U.S. Jews did not start this debate and certainly will not end it. However, the survey’s findings on intermarriage, child rearing and Jewish identity provide some support for both sides.

For example, the survey shows that the offspring of intermarriages – Jewish adults who have only one Jewish parent – are much more likely than the offspring of two Jewish parents to describe themselves, religiously, as atheist, agnostic or nothing in particular. In that sense, intermarriage may be seen as weakening the religious identity of Jews in America.

Yet the survey also suggests that a rising percentage of the children of intermarriages are Jewish in adulthood. Among Americans age 65 and older who say they had one Jewish parent, 25% are Jewish today. By contrast, among adults under 30 with one Jewish parent, 59% are Jewish today. In this sense, intermarriage may be transmitting Jewish identity to a growing number of Americans.

Surveys are snapshots in time. They typically show associations, or linkages, rather than clear causal connections, and they don’t predict the future. We do not know, for example, whether the large cohort of young adult children of intermarriage who are Jewish today will remain Jewish as they age, marry (and in some cases, intermarry), start families and move through the life cycle. With those cautions in mind, here’s a walk through some of our data on intermarriage, including some new analysis that goes beyond the chapter on intermarriage in our original report. (We would like to thank several academic researchers, including Theodore Sasson of Brandeis University, Steven M. Cohen of Hebrew Union College and NYU Wagner, and Bruce Phillips of Hebrew Union College and the University of Southern California, for suggesting fruitful avenues of additional analysis.)

First, intermarriage is practically nonexistent among Orthodox Jews; 98% of the married Orthodox Jews in the survey have a Jewish spouse. But among all other married Jews, only half say they have a Jewish spouse.

In addition, intermarriage rates appear to have risen substantially in recent decades, though they have been relatively stable since the mid-1990s. Looking just at non-Orthodox Jews who have gotten married since 2000, 28% have a Jewish spouse and fully 72% are intermarried.

Also, intermarriage is more common among Jewish respondents who are themselves the children of intermarriage. Among married Jews who report that only one of their parents was Jewish, just 17% are married to a Jewish spouse. By contrast, among married Jews who say both of their parents were Jewish, 63% have a Jewish spouse.

Among Jews, the adult offspring of intermarriages are also much more likely than people with two Jewish parents to describe themselves religiously as atheist, agnostic or just “nothing in particular.” This is the case among all recent generations of U.S. Jews.

For example, among Jewish Baby Boomers who had two Jewish parents, 88% say their religion is Jewish; hence, we categorize them as “Jews by religion.” But among Baby Boomers who had one Jewish parent, 53% describe themselves as atheist, agnostic or having no particular religion, even though they also say they consider themselves Jewish or partially Jewish aside from religion; they are categorized as “Jews of no religion” in the table. Far fewer Jewish Baby Boomers who had two Jewish parents (12%) are Jews of no religion today.

A similar pattern is seen among Jewish Millennials: 51% of Millennials who have one Jewish parent are Jews of no religion, compared with just 15% of Millennials who had two Jewish parents.

Summing this up, it appears that the share of Jews of no religion is similar – and relatively low – among recent generations of Jews with two Jewish parents. It is much higher (and also fairly similar across generations) among self-identified Jews with only one Jewish parent.

But it is also important to bear in mind that the percentage of Jewish adults who are the offspring of intermarriages appears to be rising. Just 6% of Jews from the Silent Generation say they had one Jewish parent, compared with 18% of Jewish Baby Boomers, 24% of Generation X and nearly half (48%) of Jewish Millennials. The result is that there are far more Jews of no religion among younger generations of Jews than among previous generations, as shown in the survey report.

When we look at all adults who have just one Jewish parent – including both those who identify as Jewish and those who do not – we see that the Jewish retention rate of people raised in intermarried families appears to be rising. That is, among all adults (both Jewish and non-Jewish) who say they had one Jewish parent and one non-Jewish parent, younger generations are more likely than older generations to be Jewish today.

For example, among U.S. adults ages 65 and older who had one Jewish parent, 25% are Jewish today (including 7% who are Jews by religion and 18% who are Jews of no religion), while 75% are not Jewish (meaning that they currently identify with a religion other than Judaism or that they do not consider themselves Jewish in any way, either by religion or otherwise). Among adults younger than 30 who have one Jewish parent, by contrast, 59% are Jewish today, including 29% who are Jews by religion and 30% who are Jews of no religion.

Finally, it has often been assumed that Jewish women are less inclined to intermarry than are Jewish men. As Bruce Phillips, a sociologist at Hebrew Union College in Los Angeles, has written: “In American popular culture, intermarriage has been the [domain] of Jewish males. Starting with ‘Abbie’s Irish Rose’ and ‘The Jazz Singer’ following the turn of the century through ‘Bridget Loves Bernie’ and the ‘Heartbreak Kid’ in the early 1970s to ‘Mad About You’ in the 1990s, the plot is about a Jewish married man in love with a stereotypical [non-Jewish woman].”

But our survey finds that Jewish women are slightly more likely to be intermarried than Jewish men. Among the married Jewish women surveyed, 47% say they have a non-Jewish spouse. Among the married Jewish men, 41% say they have a non-Jewish spouse.

“How to Fight the Evil Regime” – Part 2

 25 Shevat 5781 07 February 2021 https://palmtreeofdeborah.blogspot.com/2021/02/how-to-fight-evil-regime-part-2.html

(Part 1)

 

“One aspect of Milchemes Gog U’Magog that’s even more serious than the physical battle is that it will be a spiritual battle royale between tumah and kedushah.” 

The End Illuminated by Rabbi Yisroel Moshe Sorotzkin

Kadosh means separated and that’s really our weapon….  People want to know how to fight the evil regime that is coming to annihilate us.  Only if you are holy.  If you are holy, nothing is going to touch you.                         — Rabbi Alon Anava

Continuing with Or Ha’Ra’ayon on Kedusha

 

Kedusha is the foundation of the world, because kedusha is perfection and purity, without a trace of abomination, spiritual baseness, selfishness, or bestial lust.  Kedusha involves preparation, readying oneself to become holy, to fill one’s soul with kedusha, as was said at Sinai, “Go to the people and sanctify them [וקדשתם-vekidashtam]” (Ex. 19:10), and Rashi comments, “Ready them so that they can prepare themselves.”  Kedusha means being ready for holiness and purity to enter the heart and soul.  The opposite of kedusha is chulin non-holiness, from the root chalal, a vacuum.  The irreligious Jew is an empty vacuum, whom kedusha has left.

Indeed, kedusha is the foundation of the world and of Israel, because the world was created for the sake of kedusha, and Israel – G-d’s emissary and anointed one on earth – was created, as well, for the sake of kedusha.  Israel are obligated to emulate G-d and imitate His attributes and ways, as an example and as a light unto mankind, in order to form a world that is totally good.  Our sages said (Torat Kohanim, Kedoshim, 1):

 If you sanctify yourselves, I will credit you as having sanctified Me.  If you do not sanctify yourselves, I will treat you as not having sanctified Me…  Abba Shaul says, “Israel are the King’s retinue, and they are required to emulate the King.”

In other words, Israel, as G-d’s retinue (The retainers or attendants accompanying a high-ranking person.), have the task of imitating Him, of being as similar to Him as is possible for a man to be similar to G-d, and of coming close to Him.  If they do so, then, so to speak, G-d, as well, ascends spiritually and becomes holier.  G-d decreed this upon Israel:  “Remember and keep all My commandments and be holy to your G-d” (Num. 15:40).  The Sifri comments (Shelach, 115), “This is the kedusha of all the mitzvot.”  In other words, through all the mitzvot, Israel become holier; and this is their task, because it was for the sake of this that G-d took them out of Egypt, as shall be explained below.

 It also says (Lev. 11:44-45):

 

For I am the L-rd your G-d, and since I am holy, you must also make yourselves holy and remain sanctified.  Therefore, do not defile your souls by eating any small animal that lives on the land.  I am the L-rd, and I brought you out of Egypt to be your G-d.  Therefore, since I am holy, you must also make yourselves holy.

 …We also learn (Torat Kohanim, Shemini, 12),  “Just as I am holy, so are you holy.  Just as I am set apart, so must you be set apart.”  Here we find kedusha defined:  It means separating oneself from the abominations, impurity and bestiality of the world, and instead clinging to purity and spiritual loftiness, goodness and the yoke of Heaven, intent on ascending and becoming holier.  The beast is a prisoner of physical drives and lust.  It cannot possibly separate itself from bestiality, for it is entirely bestial and was created to be precisely that in order to show man the behavior from which he must flee.

Breaking down one’s passions is Israel’s task.  That is why kedusha was commanded so many times in the realms of life fraught with lust and desire; namely, food and conjugal relations.  Regarding food, G-d stressed this in Leviticus (at the end of Ch. 11), and in Deuteronomy (14:2-3), where the section on food prohibitions begins as follows:  “You are a nation consecrated to the L-rd your G-d….  Do not eat any abomination.”  Ibn Ezra comments, “Anything that is abominable to the pure soul, like the crawling things of the earth,”* and Vayikra Rabbah, 13:3, teaches:  “‘These are the mammals that you may eat.

With this in mind, I find it very interesting that part of the Elites’ plan is to deny meat to the masses and put them all on a diet of insects instead [See And the Lab-Grown Meat Shall Go Forth From Yerushalayim; Insect Market To Explode: EU Gives Green Light To Eating Mealworm; Edible Insects Market to receive overwhelming hike in Revenues by 2018 – 2027.]

They do mean to create an underclass of sub-human beings by weakening the soul within.  This would no doubt result in a true Zombie apocalypse, but rest assured that humanity is not hefker.  The World has a Master and it is not these spiritual pygmies, themselves enslaved to the Satan.  The very fact that all of this is global in scope indicates that the End of the World As We Have Known It Until Now has finally arrived.

Why the Police Terrorize the Religious

We have brought everything upon ourselves with our own mistakes. But by acknowledging and correcting it, we can change everything for the good…

By: David Ben Horin

Update date: 1November2020, 17:05 https://www.breslev.co.il/articles/israel_and_society/current_affairs/why_the_police_terrorize_the_religious.aspx?id=36731&language=english

 

And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth has become full of robbery because of them, and behold I am destroying them from the earth” (Genesis 6:13).

The end of all flesh: According to Rashi, wherever you find promiscuity, a pestilence comes upon the world and kills both good and bad alike [from Gen. Rabbah 26:5].

There you have it. The plague is a plague of promiscuity.

For decades we loosened standards for what’s in bounds for using the bodies G-d gives us.

He warned us with AIDS. He warned us with the swine flu. He warned us with the bird flu.

We didn’t listen.

The West passed legislation making all forms of sodomy and sexual inversion legal.

The Supreme Court of Israel demanded the Knesset pass a law making sodomy legal. This hasn’t happened in Israel since the actual cities of Sodom and Gomorrah did so right next to the Dead Sea.

We all saw how that turned out.

Now we see what is happening here. A month after this decree, Corona struck.

Since the plague, our government appointed an open sodomite as Minister of Internal Security. He is directly in charge of the police in Israel. From the day he took office, Torah Jews have been targeted for violence by the very people who swore to protect them.

As residents of Tel Aviv walk the streets without masks right next to police cars, and thousands protest the government with no answer from the law, Torah observant families can’t even marry off their children – even as they follow all guidelines by the Health Ministry.

Torah Jews are beaten, bloodied, and thrown in jail by the sodomite led police force for no reason. It has gotten so bad that religious Jews are having their weddings in Arab towns.

Who is to Blame

According to the Tanya, if a certain sin bothers us to the very core of our being, it means we are doing something very wrong and the only place we should be looking is in a mirror.

Let’s turn inward and ask ourselves why suddenly the Israeli police are targeting G-d fearing Jews as if they are Palestinian terrorists . .  or cockroaches disloyal to her fuhrer:

1. We let them. 
Without the 16 Knesset seats that the religious Jews give the current government, it will fall to pieces and there will be new elections.

The Torah parties can even create a 61-seat government without the current Prime Minister and without elections!

Yet, we allow the party in power to appoint a sodomite over the police force who doesn’t seem to have a problem with his men breaking the arms and legs of those who love Hashem.

Are some extra stipends from the government worth allowing that government to enact policies that will destroy all of us? Do we, as G-d loving Jews, have the right to act as an accomplice to open sodomy?

2. We let everyone.  
Where is the protest against sexual immorality in general?

Where is the movement to restore purity to the Land? Where are the 2 million religious marching in the name of sexual purity for everyone – regardless of orientation? Where is the 2 million name petition to hold real standards for billboards, internet content, and dress code in general?

We don’t communicate to the nation the importance of the mitzvah to guard our sexual dignity, and as a result of our silence, we let the nation sin, and sin, and sin, and sin. Are the righteous punished along with the wicked because we didn’t stand up to this?

Is Hashem implying that if we fought this . . . He would grant us victory, and that if we don’t fight, that makes us as guilty as everyone else?

We must unite and speak up against what is destroying all mankind.

3. We are doing this ourselves. 
Let’s not be so ignorant as to think it’s just the secular.

Every public speaking Rabbi has called the breach of standards in this regard among the religious a pandemic.

The religious community has become infected with the plague of promiscuity. The difference between us and the secular is that we are supposed to know better!

We are not doing enough to stop this among our own. We are not doing enough to protect our children.

Hashem promised Abraham that if just 10 people were deemed righteous among the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, then everyone would have been spared. That means Hashem would let the millions of people continue to live in these cities even as they committed the worst abominations – in the merit of just 10 people fighting with all their hearts to fear Hashem by fearing sin.

Even if we are so far gone and we see no end in sight to this Evil Inclination that has gripped us in its nearly invincible vices, if we did all everything we could to resist, a sincere and ongoing effort can be enough to make a real change in the entire world.

We MUST fight, every moment of every day, to Guard the Covenant by policing our own choices. We must change the way we interact with members of the opposite sex, and stop dressing in a way that accentuates the body and attracts attention – men and women alike. We must put strong filters on the Internet and our own eyes.

This, and only this, will end the Corona Plague.

This plague didn’t come from China. It came from Hashem.

Rabbi Nachman teaches that there is no problem so great that you cannot fix it.

Now that we realize how guilty we, the religious, are of creating and spreading this deadly plague among Israel and the world. . . we understand that it is well within our ability to repent and Hashem will fix everything.

Protest in Jerusalem against death of Ahuvya Sandak turns violent

Mob trashes Arab car, police cruiser during Jerusalem protests

Watch: Protest in Jerusalem against death of Ahuvya Sandak turns violent, with protesters mobbing Arab car and trashing police cruiser.

חרדים משחיתים רכב ערבי שנקלע להפגנה לאחר מותו של אהוביה סנדק בירשולים Protest in Jerusalem against death of Ahuvya Sandak 31Decembewrer2020

A protest in Jerusalem overnight against the death of 16-year-old Ahuvya Sandak during a police chase last week turned violent, with mobs attacking police officers and an Arab vehicle.

Hundreds of protesters gathered in multiple locations across Jerusalem Thursday night to protest the police’s role in the fatal accident last week.

Protests were reported at the entrance to Jerusalem, the Chords Bridge, and at Bar Ilan Junction in the capital, with similar protests held overnight in Harish, Rosh Pina, Ariel, Ramla, the Bar Ilan Bridge in central Israel, and Nof Hagalil.

Clashes between police and protesters broke out at multiple sites in Jerusalem, with the police department reported stones being thrown at officers and police vehicles attacked by demonstrators.

At least one police cruiser was damaged by protesters at Bar Ilan Junction overnight.

After the protests had dispersed, at approximately 3:00 a.m. Friday, a group of roughly 20 demonstrators attacked an Arab car in the capital, hurling stones at it and using garbage cans, pieces of metal, and other objects to smash the windows before three people inside managed to flee.

Authorities also reported that protesters damaged public buses, torched dumpsters, smashed surveillance cameras and light posts, and caused damage to fences and local infrastructure.

Twenty demonstrators were arrested overnight and taken for questioning.

ISRAELI POLICE MURDER JEWISH CHILDREN

23 December 202014 Tevet 5781 http://palmtreeofdeborah.blogspot.com/2020/12/israeli-police-murder-jewish-children.html

UPDATE!

Erev Rav Decides Ahuvya’s Execution Was Both Deserved and Righteous

Their cruelty was on full display this week…
Dean Maughvet
Dec 28

The cruelty of the Erev Rav was on full display this week after the death of Ahuvya Sandak at the hands of the Israel Police.

Both from Israeli officialdom and so-called Jewish leaders from abroad – and from those who support them – the response was monolithic and Olympian:

“If they hadn’t been throwing rocks, they wouldn’t have been chased by the police.”

“Don’t break the law and you won’t put your life in jeopardy.”

“What kind of fool tries to run from the police without suffering consequences?”

And other such callousness that requires immediate redress.So here goes.

Israeli Police violence aganst Haredim

To begin, police officers can and do break the law.  How often it happens is anyone’s guess.  Unless you’re a police officer, or have been one, only you can tell.

The problem is, because of the enormous power they possess, they can regularly break the law with impunity.

Moreover, because in nearly every country on the planet there’s precious little oversight, the tendency toward internal whitewashings of their transgressions, large and small, is overwhelming.

Who’s Policing the Police?

In the State of Israel, the police and her affiliated, secret branches and intelligence agencies represent the hardest, most rotten core of the deep state.

It’s not, as many believe, the judiciary, where the kernel of the Erev Rav resides, but with the Shabak and the rest of their eavesdropping meddler cohort, who’ve been given carte blanche to operate beyond the framework of regulations and laws that guide the rest of the country’s citizenry.

It’s the Judiciary that receives their marching orders from the Shabak et al., rather than the other way round, as many errantly believe.

The fact that the two groups happen to share, by and large, the same elitist, anti-Jewish and pro-western values, norms and beliefs makes the relationship a very comfortable hand-in-glove fit.

Israeli Police violence aganst Haredim-2

Sharpening the Issue

In the case of Ahuvya Sandak, the point is not whether some teenager from Maoz Esther broke the law.  The courts are meant to decide that.

At stake is whether a police officer has the right to engage a suspect in a manner that will almost certainly lead to grievous bodily injury or death.

Period.

More specifically, at stake is whether a vehicular ‘take-down’ technique with twenty years of data behind it that is known to be lethal at speeds over 55 kmh (35 mph) was legally employed in this case, or was a rogue maneuver performed by an overly ambitious cop with either a chip on his shoulder for the hilltop youth, or a desire for adventure or advancement.

When Cops Get Stinky

There’s a long history of bad blood and egregiously unlawful behavior on the part of the Israel Police toward the hilltop youth – and a great deal of underhanded plotting and provocation to portray them in a bad light.

That activity includes Shabak agents dressing up as Arabs and attempting to steal Jewish flocks or destroy Jewish property, only to make arrests when the Jews inevitably defend themselves.

It’s a very dirty business, and it will all be exposed shortly.

It may also lead to a very violent reaction on the part of those same Jews who, for too long, have been at the receiving end of the Yasam and Magav jackboot.

To Sum

Everyone is equal before the law – or so we’re told.

And that means a bad cop must be prosecuted to the full extent if he transgresses.  Perhaps even more so.

As one charged with upholding the law, shouldn’t we expect from him a higher standard?

Whether that standard is adhered to, in any event, will depend on one thing only.

Public pressure.

The police have to feel like the public is out for their blood before they relent and turn their evil ones over for prosecution.

Prosecutors and judges, too, have to be shown the guillotine before the stiff chill of justice genuinely courses through their juridical veins.

There have been six straight nights of protests across Eretz Yisrael for the sake of Ahuvya Sandak, HY”D.

G-d willing, it continues.

With knowledge aforehand that the evil ones will receive the judgment they deserve,

Dean Maughvet

GUEST POST: “Third Temple Culture: The Ethos of The Hilltop Youth”

4 Adar 5781 16 February 2021
https://palmtreeofdeborah.blogspot.com/2021/02/guest-post-third-temple-culture-ethos.html

Third Temple Culture: The Ethos of The Hilltop Youth

A vigorous new worldview that moves beyond the State of Israel

“We are post-zionist, yes; but also adamantly halachic.”

The Hilltop Youth are not the same young fellows you read about in the mainstream media.

There, you’ll find endless stories about dropouts, vandals and ‘messianic zealots’.

And in the burgeoning academic literature, too, where every manner of anthropologist, sociologist and criminologist is tripping over himself to develop a convincing typology for the group, or to formulate some original model the better to render them, like Eliot’s butterfly, “sprawled and wriggling on a pin” – the target is missed altogether.

In the case of the journalists, it’s mostly laziness.

If you’re a secular reporter, what, after all, is your motivation to get ‘inside’ and really understand the heart of a movement that will eventually upend the course of modern Jewish history?

And besides, in contemporary journalism an agenda has to be pushed, so it’s easier to just stigmatize (or demonize) the group in order to advance your career, rather than run up against some woke editor who’ll consign you to proofreading the social page if you don’t conform.

As for the ‘academics’, it’s too often the case that papers are written in order to make policy proposals for politicians and law enforcement (alongside making a name for themselves as good students of these very bad Jews).

Ultimately, that means finding vulnerabilities in the group that can be exploited by well-meaning government types who just want to make the ‘problem’ go away.

In short, almost no one writing today about the Hilltop Youth is doing so in an honest, intelligent manner, or with a view toward knowing what truly animates them.

Very simply, the Hilltop Youth possess a single-minded yearning for the Third Temple – a desire so consuming and uncompromising that it has de facto created a separate and exclusive Hilltop culture – not only distinct from the shallow, mainstream zeitgeist of the Israeli sh’fela, but also from the spirit of those ‘settlers’ in whose midst they dwell.

Now, that’s a lot to parse, I know, so let’s try to unpack it.

Hilltop Bullet Points

We’ll start with this: the Hilltop Youth is not ‘Israeli’, in the normative cultural sense of the term.  They possess Israeli citizenship, yes, but…

  • They care nothing for the politics that enlivens the average Israeli. 
  • They care less for TzaHaL, over which most of the country still fawns.
  • High tech is the least of their ambitions.
  • And as for a life of ease – in the most vulgar, western understanding of the phrase (gadgets and holidays) – it’s nothing they pine for.
  • All of which places them in an entirely different galaxy from the average citizen of the so-called Jewish State.

Rather, the weltanschauung of the Hilltop Youth group is one of pure spirit.

Know, too, that there’s no organization here.

This is an entirely generational mindset that was absorbed via a number of disparate historical processes and phenomena that began in 1967.

It includes, among others – Rabbi Kahane, Oslo, Gush Katif, the broader settlement enterprise (and especially its conflict with the Minhal Ezrachi), Israeli judicial overreach, increasing police malfeasance, and a wholesale rejection of the statist politics of their elders.

Throw in an overwhelming love of the Land and People of Israel and you come up with a product that the state and its institutions truly regard as a mortal threat to their existence.

And they’re right.

But for the wrong reasons.

A New Vision

The dream of the Hilltop Youth is to lead a life of mesirut nefesh for the sake of the Land of Israel and the Jewish remnant that believes, as they do, that nothing short of the messianic vision of the prophets will suffice for them – or for G-d.

And so, in an unceasing effort to occupy the space that’s bound by their convictions, they have moved into that ‘place’ that is wholly Third Temple.

That is, they have dispensed with anything that does not comport with life as it is meant to be lived in Temple times, and have filled their days exclusively with the necessities of learning about and preparing for the temple sacrifice ritual as explained in the Mishna.

All else is superfluous.

Life is led as if the Temple might appear tomorrow, and the group will simply walk undisturbed into that new reality without so much as a blink.

What that means…

1.      It means that animals and crops are raised in a natural, organic manner for both sustenance and sacrifice.

2.      That the Israeli state as a political concept (and reality) is rejected in favor of a King and Sanhedrin that are now in their emergent stages.

3.      That the state, moreover, is considered to be the single biggest roadblock on the road to a Third Temple reality.

4.      That a complete repudiation of, and disengagement from the institutions and processes of the State of Israel — and all those who work for and support them — is therefore a categorical necessity.

5.      That economically, the abiding focus is on agriculture, artisanry and crafts that will eventually contribute to a full Third Temple existence – to the exclusion of all other occupations.

6.      Submission to an overall ‘primitivism’ (they’ve certainly been called worse), that considers trapping, gathering, preserving, spinning, dyeing, and excelling at all the fiber, metal- and wood-working arts as activities of the highest value — to be learned, taught and thoroughly promoted.

Third Temple Economy

The group is now engaged in developing a Third Temple economic infrastructure that is Torah and agriculture based.  The laws of shmittah and yovel are studied and implemented with great stricture.

The group sees guilds and apprentice-style learning groups emerging for crafts and tradesmen, along with

A barter system with designated weights and measures, and set locations for the effective commercial transfer of goods, based on the original Mishnaic Monday/Thursday market-day protocol.

A group of learned and trustworthy rabbis without any state affiliation – itinerant teachers of sorts – is now active across Yehuda and Shomron, visiting the various hilltops to teach the relevant laws of agriculture and trade and to ensure they’re adhered to.

Sympathetic legal experts have also been engaged to coach the group and instruct them in the methods of Erev Rav state trickery – and how to defend themselves against it.

This is Hitnatkut — Complete Disengagement

Willful and With Purpose

So much unlike the last one…

This de-coupling will form the underpinning of a new Jewish sensibility, a genuine Third Temple reality that will arise in the highlands between Hebron and Shechem in the years ahead.

And then spread beyond.

May you be zoche to find yourself among those who would partake of it.

GUEST POST: “HARDENED HEARTS”

Hardened Hearts

 By Rabbi Chananya Weissman

 

We read this week that Hashem hardened Pharaoh’s heart so that he would not free the Jews from slavery (Shemos 7:3). The commentators all grapple with how Hashem could seemingly take away Pharaoh’s free choice and then punish him for not listening.

 

There is a fascinating explanation offered by Ramban, Seforno, and others. According to them, Hashem merely hardened Pharaoh’s heart so that he would be able to bear the punishments. Otherwise, it is incomprehensible that Pharaoh could experience the miracles, plagues, and destruction brought against his nation and not give in. Rather than taking away Pharaoh’s free choice, Hashem was actually preserving it!

Indeed, Chazal teach that “בדרך שאדם רוצה לילך בה מוליכין אותו”, God leads people on the path they choose for themselves. Pharaoh had chosen the path of enslaving the Jews and defying God’s will. God hardened his heart so that he could remain on that path in spite of the punishments.

This teaching gives us a precious insight into human psychology and behavior. We all want to believe that we are objective and reasonable. In reality, most people are easily manipulated by internal biases and external forces. Their opinions and decisions can be predicted with a great degree of accuracy by algorithms, and influenced by those who know how to press the right buttons. It takes wisdom, self-awareness, integrity, and strength for one to be truly objective. Most people think and act based in large part on a path they have previously chosen for themselves.

With this in mind we can more easily understand how otherwise intelligent people have turned off their minds. We see many people insisting that a so-called vaccine, which isn’t really a vaccine at all, is perfectly safe, when that cannot possibly be known, and there have already been disturbing reports. We see people demanding that everyone wear masks at all times to stop the spread of microscopic coronavirus particles, when these masks cannot even stop the spread of cigarette smoke. We see Torah scholars comparing Covid-19 to smallpox, cholera, and the black plague, when the mortality rate of Covid-19 doesn’t qualify as a plague at all, and proper treatments – which are denied by the establishment – render it virtually harmless.

Most troubling, we see the reactions of family members, friends, scholars, Jews who take Judaism very seriously, when we even bring up the subject or try to share some information. They become unhinged. They become angry and agitated, hyper-defensive, irrational, and completely closed. They are unwilling to even look at new information or give any further consideration to matters of life and death.

They chose their path and they hardened their hearts.

The truth is that this could have been predicted. For example, American Jews who made aliya and live in Anglo-communities tend to have a particular mindset. They wish to show that they are flag-waving Zionists, and “good Israelis”. Their feelings may be sincere, but at the core their behaviors are driven largely by social expectations. Those “other” religious Jews are anti-Zionist, and it is important for these religious Jews to distinguish themselves from them.

As a result, people in these communities tend to completely support whatever guidelines and restrictions the government imposes on them. They will be dismayed, even infuriated, by those who flout them. They will make all sorts of arguments to defend the edicts, but deep down it stems not from an objective, reasoned analysis, but from the path they have chosen.

The YU types share the social need to display their blind allegiance to the Israeli government. In addition, they pride themselves on intellectualism and scholarship, and will recoil from beliefs that might render them fundamentalists or intellectually inferior “conspiracy theorists”. They always have to be on the side of the “experts”, and perhaps nothing gratifies them more than receiving approval from secular society. To be recognized as a Torah scholar, yet to also be admired by the goyim and to rub shoulders with the bourgeoisie is the ultimate fantasy of this type.

Hence, going against the establishment position on virtually anything is anathema to the YU type. If the establishment position is diametrically opposed to the Torah, they will look the other way, or even try to contort the Torah to find room for it. There is no way they will oppose masks, lockdowns, and so-called vaccines, and they will revile those who do. It is not because they considered both positions carefully and independently chose the one with greater merit. When push comes to shove, Torah and madda will not decide their positions, but will be called upon to justify them.

That is the path they chose, and their hearts are hardened.

The anti-Zionist types will automatically resist Israeli edicts, lest they appear to join hands with the enemy. They will only come on board if certain people can be influenced to share one-sided information with certain other people, ask a leading question, and receive the desired response. This will be widely publicized and framed as immutable Torah truth. There will be no nuance, no detailed teshuva outlining the information and thought process behind the conclusion, nothing that can be analyzed or – God forbid – challenged. There will be no further discussion on the matter. Those who raise the slightest concern are heretics. Here too, despite the religious virtue-signaling, most people’s beliefs and actions can be predicted based on social considerations.

That is the path they chose, and their hearts are hardened.

The anti-religious crowd saves the human race by conquering it and degrading it, lest humanity destroy itself with actual religion. They always have a cause to impose on others, which is really a panacea for their spiritual void. They call good evil and evil good. They sanctify the most heinous crimes against God and man in the most grandiose of terms, for that is their religious duty. Naturally, the anti-religious will virtue-signal by “following the science” and pretending to care about the lives of others, even as they grind these lives into the dust.

Whatever is left of their hearts is cold and hardened like stone.

Who is left? A small percentage of free-thinking people, many of whom don’t fit neatly into any category and value truth over social approval.

This persecuted minority tries earnestly to share information with those whose hearts are hardened. They do not get paid for this. They do not earn respect or social approval for the efforts – just the opposite. Yet they persist, until they are made to stop.

Moshe repeatedly warned Pharaoh to send out the Jews. The truth was clear for all to see, yet Pharaoh hardened his heart. He played the skeptic, denying God’s existence and Moshe’s authenticity. There was “no evidence”. His “experts” were superior.

Even when Pharaoh was forced to acknowledge the truth, he persisted in his evil ways. The punishments came and humbled him, but as soon as he found relief he continued marching on the path he chose for himself. More punishments came. His society was being brought to its knees. When Pharaoh could no longer harden his heart, Hashem hardened it for him so he could continue on the path he chose for himself.

We read this story and wonder what kind of fool Pharaoh must have been. But Pharaoh was no fool. He was a wise and cunning man. He simply chose his path, and nothing, but nothing was going to make him change it, so long as he had free will.

That describes the vast majority of the human race.

Over the last year I have completely changed my opinion on masks as I have learned more. I have changed my opinion on lockdowns and the non-vaccine as well. It is less important to receive the approval of those around us than it is to get these things right.

It is very disturbing that people are so emotionally attached to their opinions that they cannot rethink them. It is dangerous that people make life and death decisions based more on social considerations than knowledge and reason. It is tragic that people become agitated and angry when offered more information by those who care about them.

May God remove the heart of stone from inside our people and replace it with a heart of flesh.

GUEST POST: “TORAH OR TYRANNY”

30 Shevat 5781 12 February 2021 http://palmtreeofdeborah.blogspot.com/2021/02/guest-post-torah-or-tyranny.html
Rosh Chodesh Aleph
Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Parashat Mishpatim – Sheqalim

With thanks, once again, to Rabbi Chananya Weissman..

Torah or Tyranny

The history of the human race can mostly be summed up as follows: God creates the world and tells Man the rules. Man breaks the rules, then makes different rules that he thinks will work better or that otherwise suit his desires. Man fails every time.

We live in a generation that considers itself the most enlightened in history. This assertion goes largely unchallenged not because it is true, but because those who are most slighted by this sanctimonious claim – all previous generations – are no longer here to protest it.

While technology has advanced exponentially, it is difficult to argue that the moral state of the human race has advanced in kind, let alone reached historic heights. Consider the state of the world today:

South America is controlled by authoritarian governments and drug cartels. Those who oppose the ruling class tend to be assassinated.

North America is controlled by increasingly draconian governments who serve the interests of large corporations and foreign entities. Censorship and bullying is the norm. The fundamental freedoms citizens used to take for granted have been eroding for many years, and currently hang by a thread. Those who oppose the current ruling class are being branded “domestic terrorists” by the establishment, to justify war against them.

Western Europe is also controlled by increasingly draconian governments, though their citizens had fewer freedoms to begin with. When citizens make large protests, the government considers them the enemy, not a voice to be heard and respected. Those who oppose the ruling class are persecuted.

Eastern Europe is controlled by authoritarian governments and oligarchs. Those who oppose the ruling class tend to wind up in prison or suffer tragic accidents.

The Middle East is controlled by totalitarian governments and dictators.

Israel, which proclaims itself the only democracy in the Middle East, has followed the Western World as it generally does. Hence, its vague allegiance to “democracy” has also been replaced with a draconian government that serves the interests of large corporations and foreign entities. Citizens are pawns with the illusion of rights. More on this later.

Africa is controlled by dictators and powerful tribes.

Asia is controlled by authoritarian governments, totalitarian governments, and dictators. The Chinese totalitarian system seems to be the role model of Western governments.

The overwhelming majority of the human race lives in abject poverty, regular poverty, or is dangerously close. The governments of the world view their citizens as subjects to be exploited, pawns to be manipulated, threats to be eliminated, or nuisances to be controlled. World leaders view laws that restrict their authority not as sacred guideposts, but as obstacles to be wiggled around or removed.

This is the most enlightened generation? This is the result of thousands of years of “progress”?

Capitalism, socialism, communism, democracy, autocracy, and the rest seem very different on the surface, but they all have one thing in common: sooner or later the money and power will be in the hands of a privileged few. Everyone else will struggle to get by, and will live in fear of the establishment.

Even democracy – that great achievement of recent generations – is easy to subvert and corrupt, or simply to vote out of existence. Tyranny is inevitable in democracies as well; it merely takes longer to develop.

This week’s parsha contains a high percentage of the laws God gave the Jewish regarding the societal structure. It is beyond the scope of this article to discuss them in depth, but even a cursory reading of the parsha shows the great emphasis on protecting the weak from the strong, integrity of the justice system, and safeguards against corruption.

According to the Torah, leaders are not only equally accountable to the law, they are held to a higher standard than ordinary citizens. With greater power comes not just greater responsibility, but greater accountability. Only God created and – just as critically – enforces such truly just laws. Man-made systems pay lip service to this idea, even as those in power constantly remind us that they play by different rules, if any rules at all. Even in democracies, the ability of citizens to hold their leaders accountable for gross misdeeds is extremely limited at best.

According to the Torah, there is no such thing as the rich having any privileges over the poor. Wealth is a God-given blessing, and a responsibility to help those less fortunate in order to secure continued blessing. Wealth does not confer on people greater status, presumptions of wisdom, or power according the Torah. A wealthy businessman with a multi-million dollar court case must wait his turn if the pauper is there first. Judges are obligated by the Torah to fear no one, favor no one, and to adjudicate as if their own money and lives depend on getting it right, for in fact they do. While they are judging the people, God is judging the judges.

Indeed, fear of Heaven and dependence on God to be actively supervising society are built into our judicial system. A capital case can only be reopened to acquit one found guilty, but never the reverse. This is not because the Torah is against harsh punishment of criminals – just the opposite – but because we recognize that our powers to mete out punishment must be limited in certain ways, and that God is actively involved in the judicial process. We are constantly reminded that we are only servants of God, and our leaders are only custodians of the Torah, to safeguard us from tyranny.

It is no coincidence that man-made systems remove God for the purpose of engaging in tyranny, or co-opt a religious system to terrorize people in God’s name. No man-made system limits the power of its leaders specifically in the name of God, relying on God to pick up where our ability to mete out justice must be constrained. Only in the Torah do we find that the sections describing positions of authority, such as kings, judges, and prophets, are devoted almost entirely to limiting the power of those in these positions.

Couldn’t all of mankind use more of that right now? Why did we ever think we could do better?

Another unique feature of the Torah is that the laws are finite and inviolable. In fact, the prohibition of adding or removing a single commandment is one of the 613 commandments, and a supposed prophet who seeks to add or take away from the Torah is executed as an obvious fraud. Only God could create a system that would be suitable for all times, places, and circumstances. Only divine wisdom could create laws that are permanent and unalterable.

Many people wrongly believe that rabbis have the power to change the Torah, when in fact their role is to teach it, instruct us on how to behave in cases of doubt, and properly apply its inviolable laws to different situations. Our sages have the authority to enact laws only for the sake of safeguarding the Torah; they cannot change a single letter.

Man-made systems are malleable by definition. Whoever created the system has no innate superiority over those who come after him, who will be sure to add new laws and discard old laws as they see fit.

Those who enjoy power in these systems have little better to do with themselves than constantly create new laws, issue new decrees, create a jungle of laws that no one can keep up with, then selectively enforce them against those they wish to suppress. Whatever is a basic right today may very well be criminalized tomorrow. This happens in every man-made system, and it is reaching extremel levels all over the world in our time.

Moreover, man-made systems specialize in vague laws that can be broadly interpreted and selectively enforced for political reasons. Take, for example, laws against “incitement”. What is incitement exactly? Whatever the people in charge want it to mean. The same is true for “endangering national security”, “enemy of the people”, “hate speech”, “causing a public disturbance”, “endangering public health”, “spreading misinformation”, and so much more.

Laws such as these are intentionally obscure to enable those in power to interpret them and apply them as they see fit. Corruption and double standards are inevitable. Anyone can be criminalized at any time.

God’s system stands in direct opposition to this. The laws are not only finite, they are clearly and fully defined through tradition and the interpretive process that were given along with the Torah. While details of commandments are under dispute, there is a clear process for determining a prevailing opinion as well, and there are no vague laws for leaders to interpret to give advantages to some and persecute others. Even a king who wishes to punish someone for treason must submit to a rabbinical court.

In a Torah system, authorities must outright violate the Torah to engage in tyranny; there’s no subterfuge. In man-made systems, they simply call it something else and make it legal.

As we near the end of days, God is making it clear for all to see that there are only two choices: Torah or tyranny. Every world power, representing every system of government, has normalized tyranny all together. There can no longer be any illusions that one system or another will give mankind the freedom it wants and deserves. They can only turn to God.

Many people wrongly believe that the Torah constrains a person, and they prefer to be “free”. We are learning how right Chazal were when they taught that the only truly free person is one who lives according to the Torah. The only truly free system is one that is based on the Torah. Those who try to create a more “open” and free system inevitably descend into tyranny, and it doesn’t take long.

Back to Israel. The great hope of the Jewish people after thousands of years of exile and persecution, the great modern Jewish experiment, has unequivocally failed. Far too many Jews foolishly believed that simply returning to our land was good enough. Israel would be a refuge from the ravages of exile, a guarantee that it would never happen again. Yet now it is happening in Israel itself. The government has turned against its own people and normalized tyranny. The masks are off, and there is nowhere left for them to run.

Even religious Jews believed that settling the land and building Torah-observant communities was good enough. As long as the government basically left them alone, they didn’t need to concern themselves with the overall spiritual character of the country. Now they are learning that Torah needs to be the law of land, and they need to take responsibility to make Israel a truly Jewish state. They can’t just be concerned about themselves and their own four cubits.

Israel’s dysfunctional government, with its eclectic mix of right wing, left wing, religious, non-religious, anti-religious, and many additional factions has historically never agreed on anything. They hate each other. But right now, for the first time in history, they have all united around a single idea: medical tyranny is normal and moral.

People who do not constantly prove that they do not have the flu-like strain of the day should not be allowed in public. People who refuse to be injected with an experimental drug should be demonized and discriminated against. They should not be forced, of course; that’s illegal. But “force” is another one of those words that can be defined and redefined to suit the whims of those in power. The definition is changing on a daily basis. Those clever, man-made laws to prevent tyranny ultimately enable it.

All incumbent political parties openly support this; there is not a single voice of outrage. They differ only in the degree of terror they wish to inflict on non-compliant citizens – all for the greater good, of course. It’s always for the greater good.

This brings us to the final lesson from the Torah system. Only God can decide what is for the greater good. Only God can play God. The tyrants wish to own everything, know everything, control everything, decide who is essential, whose life has value, who should be allowed to participate in society, and to what extent, and turn every God-given human right into a privilege that must be constantly earned by conformity to their edicts.

They want to own the world and take God’s place. But God owns the world, He controls everything, and He doesn’t want to give up His business. The final war is between those who turn to God, and those who want to take God’s place.

All the man-made systems have reached their natural end. All man-made roads lead to tyranny. All of humanity now faces a straightforward choice, regardless of where they live.

It is Torah, or it is tyranny.

 

Whose side are you on?

They were cajoled into being slaves

GUEST POST: “The Longest Word in Tanach”

14 Adar 5781 25February2021 http://palmtreeofdeborah.blogspot.com/2021/02/guest-post-longest-word-in-tanach.html
Purim – Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Parashat Tetzaveh – Shushan Purim

The longest word in Tanach, tied with two others, is “והאחשדרפנים”, which appears in Megillas Esther 9:3.  We know the Achashdarpenim were officers of the Persian king, but their specific duty is unclear and generally unknown.

Remarkably, none of the commentators mention the following Midrashic source, which tells us exactly what they did. The word “אחשדרפניא” appears in Daniel 3:27, and the meaning of the word is the subject of a dispute between Rabbi Acha and the Rabbis in Shir HaShirim Rabba 7:9:

אֲחַשְׁדַּרְפְּנַיָא, רַבִּי אַחָא וְרַבָּנָן, רַבִּי אַחָא אָמַר אֵלּוּ הָאַרְכּוּנוֹת שֶׁהֵן נֶחְשָׁדִין וּפוֹנִין דִּין לְכָל צַד, וְרַבָּנָן אָמְרֵי שֶׁמְהַדְּרִין פָּנִים וּפוֹנִים דִּין.

Rabbi Acha says they were corrupt legal advisers who would turn the law in all directions.  The Rabbis say they show favoritism and turn the law accordingly.  These opinions appear very similar; in essence, their job was to twist the law to suit the purposes of the ruler.

My, how little things have changed in our “enlightened” generation.  The leaders of so-called democracies around the world are determined to wiggle around laws that exist to protect the rights of the people.  These laws are nothing but nuisances to them.  If they cannot revoke these laws, they create emergency laws that suspend them indefinitely, or they redefine words to render the laws meaningless.

The democracies of today are little different than the Persian monarchy.  Their kings too were restricted by laws, and they too massaged the laws to get away with anything they wanted.  Instead of allowing the law to restrain them from corrupt behavior, they used the law to sanitize their corruption.  First they decided what they wanted to do, then they deployed their Achashdarpenim to find a way to make it legal.

Once again, there is nothing new under the sun, and even an obscure word in Megillas Esther teaches us a timeless lesson.

*

The Zera Shimshon has a remarkable insight in his commentary on the Haggada, Chapter 7. He cites the Drasha that the Egyptians first enslaved the Jews by cajoling them, and then imposed backbreaking work on them.  He then asks as follows: “Why did they accept upon themselves in the end to do backbreaking work?  And why were the Egyptians not afraid of them that they might protest, being that the Jews were already a large and more powerful nation than them?  And the Zera Beirach asks the same question on this Pasuk.  And he answered that this was the scheme of the Egyptians to first enslave them in this way with mortar and bricks, in order to make foolish the wisdom of the Jews…”  He goes on to explain that this type of menial work demoralizes people and has a negative effect on their intellect.

Indeed, this helps explain how so many intelligent people all around us have lost their ability to think clearly, and have so readily forfeited their most basic freedoms.  How have the 99% been enslaved by the 1% of degenerate “elites”?  They were cajoled into being slaves “just a little bit”, then they were easily demoralized and lost their minds.  Once someone allows himself to be enslaved just a little bit, he is a slave all the way.

The degenerate people in power cannot possibly control the masses with force.  Their greatest fear is that the masses will realize this, unify, and take back their freedom together.  They prevent this from happening by demoralizing the people and dumbing them down, so they forget how much power they collectively have.

*

United Hatzalah to suspend all unvaccinated volunteers

It just gets crazier and crazier. How many people will die because of a drastic reduction of Hatzalah volunteers? What next? Will they only respond to calls from people who got injected?

*

Netanyahu: We will vaccinate children before summer vacation

Netanyahu made it clear that despite the vaccines, restrictions must still be maintained. “The masks? It will take more time. The children are a quarter of Israel’s population. We will have to develop another capability. We live in the age of viruses. I made sure that the State of Israel will be the world leader. Not only by purchasing – for the next vaccine, once a year or once every six months, but also by domestic vaccine production. I talk to the CEOs of the two companies, Pfizer and Moderna, about two essential factories. I want Israel to be a leader in this field as well. To make Israel a necessary link in the global supply chain of vaccines.”

Lord Gates and King Bibi have decided that all Israelis, including children, will have to be injected with new vaccines every few months forever and ever, and they will continue to be restricted forever and ever. Israel will be a leader in the field of lab rats for drug companies.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is not a “conspiracy theory”, it’s out in the open. These corrupt, inhumane tyrants no longer represent the Israeli people, and must be removed from power.

*

WATCH: Unarmed Yeshiva Student Fights Off Armed Terrorist

I thought this was someone from the Ministry of Health coming with a syringe for someone on King Bibi’s list. Just a bit premature.

*

Yesterday I passed through Machanei Yehuda. They had set up a place in the market for people to get injected. The IDF deployed two female soldiers to walk up and down the market with a bullhorn urging people to get “vaccinated”. I’m sure their parents and the crazy feminist organizations are bursting with pride.>We need a name for this impressive military operation on behalf of Bibi, Gates, and Pfizer.

Operation Guinea Pig? Operation Blazing Needles? Operation Safe and Effective? Operation Gates of Hell? Operation Operation?

Please vote for your favorite name from the list above or suggest your own.

GUEST POST: “Lessons From the Golden Calf”

20 Adar 5781 04 March 2021 http://palmtreeofdeborah.blogspot.com/2021/03/guest-post-lessons-from-golden-calf.html

Lessons From the Golden Calf

This week we read about the original golden calf. Many have compared the cult-like worship of masks, medical products dubiously referred to as vaccines, and establishment “experts” to the golden calf. This comparison is more apt than people realize.

We tend to look down on ancient idolaters as primitive fools. They were nothing of the sort. Idolatry was deeply intertwined with the prevailing science and philosophy of the times, and its proponents were intellectually sophisticated. Those who believe that people today are intellectually advanced compared to the people of ancient times are sorely mistaken. We compare favorably to them only in the realm of technology, and only because we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us. Intellectually, religiously, and morally we have nothing to brag about.

The Rambam in Moreh Nevuchim writes at length about ancient idolatry, based on their own books. The dominant belief at the time was that celestial bodies controlled the world, and Man’s survival depended on worshiping nature. They believed that physical idols could draw power from these celestial bodies to influence world events or give people prophetic dreams. They built temples for their presumed life-preserving rituals, offered sacrifices, planted idolatrous trees to draw power from the stars, and committed immoral acts while planting fields.

Idolatrous practices were outlined in scientific books about nature and agriculture. Science and idolatry were one and the same. Challenging idolatry was synonymous with challenging established science; it was considered a threat to public health and safety, and dealt with accordingly.

The Rambam explains in great detail that a high percentage of mitzvos in the Torah were given specifically to counter this and other false ideologies. Anything that smacked of idolatry or nature-worship was strictly prohibited, and the Jews were given positive commandments to do the exact opposite of the prevailing “science”.

They were also warned that engaging in these presumed life-preserving practices would only have the opposite effect. Idolatry would lead to plague, drought, famine, poverty, death, and destruction. Keeping the Torah – doing the polar opposite of the “science” of the time – would bring rain, prosperity, health, and protection.

This was demonstrated over and over again in real life as the nation vacillated between keeping the Torah and idolatry, but it never really clicked. Old habits die hard, especially when it means going against the majority. People will suffer almost anything to be accepted.

With this introduction in mind, let’s examine the story of the golden calf.

Moshe ascended Har Sinai to receive the Torah, and was supposed to return after forty days. Due to a misunderstanding of when the clock started ticking, the Jews believed the forty days had passed and Moshe was gone. The Erev Rav declared that Moshe was dead, and the Jews needed an immediate replacement to lead them. This replacement needed to be an intermediary between the Jews and God, just as Moshe was.

This replacement needed to be an idol.

The commentators all grapple with how the Jewish people, who had experienced the highest degree of human revelation just forty days ago, could fashion a golden calf and declare “This is the God that took you out of Egypt.” The very idea is ludicrous. How could anyone believe that an idol that was minutes old did anything for them in the past?

When we understand what idolatry really was, it’s far more sensible. The Jews still believed in God and everything that had happened. The golden calf was intended not to replace God, but to draw His power down into the world. This was an entirely accepted belief, one they had grown up with and experienced all their lives. In a time of crisis, it was natural to fall back on these deeply ingrained ideas, which they had only recently been taught to oppose.

So the first important comparison between the present situation and the golden calf is that in a time of uncertainty or crisis, people will naturally follow the most familiar, comfortable path.

This brings us to the next parallel. In hindsight, it is obvious to us that worshiping the golden calf was incredibly foolish. How could it be that the dor de’ah, the most enlightened generation of Jews, could so quickly succumb to such folly?

The answer is fear. When people are afraid they do not think rationally, and they will take extreme actions to assuage their fears – often at the expense of everything else. A day earlier the notion of worshiping a golden calf would have been preposterous, but once the Jews were afraid they immediately panicked and rushed to do it.

Compare to the current situation. In hindsight, when sanity is restored to the human race, people will look back and wonder how so many people could have behaved so foolishly. We are not the most enlightened generation, but no generation has been more educated and had greater access to information. Yet so many intelligent people quickly turned into hysterical zombies, taking extreme actions at the expense of everything else – just to assuage their fears. The outcome will be no better than what the golden calf turned out to be.

The third parallel is directly linked to the fear and panic. The Jews could not wait an extra moment to create the golden calf. What would have been the big deal to sleep on it, organize a panel to debate the pros and cons of the idea, and have a committee investigate if they counted the forty days correctly?

No. They had to create the golden calf now. Why? Because it was a matter of life and death. If Moshe was dead, then creating a replacement was an urgent need. It was an emergency situation. Otherwise they might die of thirst and hunger, or from the elements, or from the snakes and scorpions in the desert, or from an attack by enemies. It was a choice between creating a golden calf or the extinction of the Jewish people.

If only they could have calmed down, deliberated, and waited a few more hours, we would have been spared thousands of years of suffering that continues to this day. If only they could have realized that being calm and deliberating was actually a third valid choice.

Today there is the same phenomenon. We are being relentlessly urged that if we don’t take an experimental “vaccine” today we will die a horrible death from covid tomorrow and bring down the rest of humanity with us. There is no time to think or deliberate. No decent person who cares about human life would dare think and deliberate, we are told. This is an emergency! It’s a war on covid! Either you are a friend or you are a foe!

This leads to several more parallels. We would imagine that the suggestion to create a golden calf was quite controversial at the time. There were many righteous Jews who opposed the idea, and quite likely a healthy majority that was seriously disturbed by the idea even if they were unsure. How did the idolaters succeed in pushing the idea through so quickly and without opposition?

First of all, they engaged in brutal censorship. No less than Hur, the son of Miriam, objected to the idea, and they murdered him. We might have expected the righteous Jews to immediately rise up and avenge his death, but just the opposite occurred. They acquiesced. They were intimidated. The good guys lacked strong leadership and were unsure of themselves, while the bad guys were organized and determined. This enabled the bad guys to easily prevail, even though they were an extreme minority pushing a radical agenda. They made an example of Hur, no one else dared confront them, and the idolaters conquered the masses just like that.

This describes the current situation to a tee.

Next the Erev Rav idolaters needed to convince the masses to join them. This was a big change. The fear was powerful, but so was the inner turmoil about worshiping a golden calf. The Jews needed reassurance that it was okay, that it was more than okay, that it was the greatest idea.

The idolaters knew exactly what to do. They approached Aharon, the Kohen Gadol, and made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. Aharon played along, hoping to buy time until Moshe returned, but was unsuccessful. His participation provided critical legitimacy, a de facto rabbinic stamp of approval that no one would dare challenge.

The same propaganda tactic was vital to get religious Jews on board with the golden calf of today. Establishment rabbis have abused their positions and the public trust to become spokesmen for idolatrous behavior. One wonders what offers the purveyors of the golden calf made these rabbis, and if they were even slightly tempted to refuse. Considering the shallowness, deceit, and bullying that pervades the rabbinic pronouncements, it seems they needed little encouragement to jump on the bandwagon. At least Aharon tried to slow it down.

There was no classical Torah debate that covered the various sides of the issue in depth. These establishment rabbis have not been made to respond to serious questions. The public was simply bombarded with declarations from so-called “leading rabbis” (a propaganda term that has never been defined), and the social pressure took on a life of its own from there.

This brings us to the sixth parallel. It wasn’t enough to just make the golden calf kosher, or even a religious obligation. They needed to eliminate any nagging reservations people might have harbored about worshiping it. After all, the Jews understood that if they got this wrong, they were going to be in very big trouble with God.

The Erev Rav needed to make it fun.

Party time! Music, dancing, an ecstatic celebration! The idolaters wore down people’s moral reservations with fear, they nudged them forward with peer pressure, and they eliminated the last bit of hesitation by replacing the fear with ecstasy. How they manipulated people’s emotions to drag them down from the greatest of heights to the lowest of depths!

In present times we have seen exactly the same methods of manipulation. How can it be that so many people would line up to get injected with an experimental drug and not display the slightest concern? Even if they were convinced by the “science”, the “experts”, and the “rabbis” that it was safe, there is still so much that is unknown and no recourse if something goes wrong. How could any reasonable person not be even a little nervous?

Not only are they not nervous, they are ecstatic. They are high. The Erev Rav have turned an experimental medical procedure with grave risks into a big fun party. After a relentless diet of fear, everyone wants to join a big fun party. The doctors are dancing. The libations are flowing. Everyone is celebrating. How can this golden calf not be a good thing? Who would want to spoil the fun by worrying?

As the Rambam explains in Moreh Nevuchim, ancient idolaters convinced parents to sacrifice their children to Molech in exactly the same way. The prevailing science of the time was that a child needed to be offered so that the other children would be protected. A mother’s natural instinct is to fight like a tiger to protect her child. The idolaters used fear to wear down her natural instinct and actually corrupt it; destroying her child was the best way to protect her children. The idolatrous priests played loud music to replace the last vestiges of hesitation with celebration, while also drowning out the screams of the child being sacrificed. Instead of fighting like tigers, the mothers folded like paper tigers.

Today we see the same tactics being used to convince pregnant women to get injected with an experimental drug, no questions asked. A pregnant woman by nature constantly obsesses over doing whatever is best for her baby. She won’t take the slightest chance. But scare her enough and turn up the music, and this primary survival instinct can be corrupted.

The seventh and final parallel somehow escapes even “very religious” Jews. Where is the connection to God in all this? The Jews in the desert were facing what they believed to be an existential crisis. Moshe was seemingly gone, and they had to decide whether or not to worship a golden calf. Why did they not break their hearts, examine their ways, and cry out to God for guidance? The Jews were blessed to have real prophets among them. They could have sought a message from God, but they did not.

In the span or a few hours they went from fear and confusion to utter certainty that God wanted them to make a golden calf. They imposed their will on God, then claimed it was exactly what God wanted them to do.

Nothing has changed today. We lack prophets, and rabbinic guidance has unfortunately become unreliable in our generation, but we see no effort on the part of the average Jew to seek guidance from God in this time of confusion. Instead, we see them imposing their will on God – or simply kowtowing to others who do this on their behalf – and then claim that this is God’s will. God wants them to serve the golden calf, and this is the only way God will save them. God gave them the golden calf as a blessing just for this purpose, and will only save those who worship it. Everyone else is a heretic and a danger to society.

The following day Moshe descended, the party came to an abrupt end, and the entire nation faced annihilation. In the aftermath of the golden calf episode we can be confident that the people declared “Never again!” Never again would they behave so foolishly. Never again would they fall prey to sinister propaganda and diabolical schemes to erode their defenses.

Of course, their descendants created two more golden calves that were worshiped for generations, and idolatry filled the land of Israel until it was destroyed. Most people just refuse to learn from history, and they become outraged at those who observe the same warning signs repeating themselves. How dare we say it’s happening again? That’s disrespectful to the people who went through it. Of course, just the opposite is true. Dismissing the warning signs is the greatest slap in the face to those who lost everything just so we could be here and learn from them.

King Menashe was one of the greatest idolaters, before repenting in his later years. Many centuries later Rav Ashi, one of the editors of the Talmud, made a disrespectful remark about him to his students. That night Menashe appeared to him in a dream and demonstrated his vast superiority in Torah knowledge to Rav Ashi. Rav Ashi asked Menashe how someone so wise could have served idolatry. Menashe retorted: “Had you been there, you would have grabbed the edge of my garment and run after me.” Rav Ashi was chastened and thenceforth spoke of Menashe with respect. (Sanhedrin 102B)

Who among us is greater than Rav Ashi? Who among us, for that matter, is greater than Menashe?

Chazal teach us that the temptation to serve idols has been destroyed (Sanhedrin 64A). Nevertheless, the temptation to find substitutes for God remains unaffected, and the psychology behind idolatry is as strong as ever.

It is easy to scoff at those who served idols, engaged in bizarre rituals, and even murdered their own children “for the greater good”…but are so many of us not doing much the same? We are not really more advanced and intellectually sophisticated than our predecessors; we pale to them in so many ways. The people worshiping needles, masks, experts, the media, the “leading rabbis”, the hype, the fear, the propaganda, the peer pressure are serving a golden calf. Technically they are not worshiping idols, which is a capital crime, but they have succumbed to exactly the same spiritual and moral demons. In a desperate, panic-driven attempt to save themselves and others, they are actually destroying themselves and others.

As in ancient times, serving idols only brought the opposite of what people hoped to achieve. Every time it backfired, the people doubled down and hoped that this time it would bring salvation. Today people continue to get strung along the failed path of idolatrous behavior, moving the goalposts and intensifying the worship as the situation continues to deteriorate. It’s time to get off the merry-go-round and really turn to God.

One final lesson. Chazal teach us that instead of punishing the Jews in one shot for serving the golden calf, which would have destroyed the nation, God let them pay back their debt on the installment plan. The worst violaters were killed immediately, and the rest of the nation gets a little extra added on to every punishment to slowly expiate the ancient sin.

While this was most generous to those who served the golden calf, it seems quite unfair to all those who came after them. Why should we have to get punished for other people’s sins? Why should we have to pay back their debt?

The answer is also found in this week’s parsha, when Hashem taught Moshe the 13 attributes. Hashem only holds children partially accountable for the sins of their ancestors when they follow the same evil ways. It follows that we can only continue to get punished for the original sin of the golden calf if we continue to follow the same idolatrous path.

Considering the numerous striking comparisons between the present situation and ancient times, it seems much of the nation is doing just that. Much of our nation, even those who are “religious”, have allowed their minds to be corrupted by Erev Rav. They have seen Menashe running to serve idolatry, grabbed his garment, and begged him to take them along.

They have put all their hope and faith in evil, deceitful, godless people and their golden needles, and convinced themselves that this is exactly what God wants them to do. They have turned against their brothers and sisters who express hesitation, let alone opt out completely, and bared their teeth with murderous rage.

They have allowed their moral principles to become eroded, and what would have been unthinkable just a short time ago they now believe to be a mitzvah. The public good, as defined by godless people, has become the new god. The Torah has nothing further to say on the subject, except to follow along and follow orders. There is no room for doubt, or dissent, or how our sages taught us for thousands of years to respond to plagues and crises. Raise the music and drown out the screams. We’re saving lives.

I’m far from perfect, and pale to my ancestors, but I’ve learned this lesson. I will not serve the golden calf or any facsimile thereof. I will protest like Hur and give my life if necessary. I will wait patiently for Moshe, or Moshiach, to come and put an abrupt stop to the party. When he calls out “Whoever is for God, come to me”, I won’t have to think about it, because I already have. I never stopped thinking, and I never will.

When this is all over, there will be a truly great party, the greatest party of all time, celebrating the final deliverance of the Jewish people and all mankind. It’s worth waiting for, and it’s worth fighting for. Those who cling to the golden calf are not invited.

I hope to see you there.

GUEST POST: “Medical Intervention in the Torah”

2 Iyyar 5781 14April2021 http://palmtreeofdeborah.blogspot.com/2021/04/guest-post-medical-intervention-in-torah.html

 

Medical Intervention in the Torah: Part One

by Rabbi Chananya Weissman

This week’s double parsha, Tazria-Metzora, provides an excellent introduction into the Torah’s perspective on doctors. It should disturb us, but not surprise us, that the Torah’s perspective is quite different from what is generally accepted today. This leaves two options for those who desire at least the pretense of following the Torah: contort the Torah to support our desired outcome (what most people do), or recalibrate our perspective (what winners do).

Those with suspected cases of tzora’as are commanded to consult not a dermatologist, but a Kohen. The treatment for this skin disease is spiritual rehabilitation. Not only that, it is forbidden to cut out or deface the affected skin to circumvent the purification process (Devarim 24:8). One who violates this prohibition may well sabotage his chances of ever becoming pure (see Rambam Hilchos Tum’as Tzara’as Chapter 10).

The naysayers are already gearing up to argue that this is an exceptional case, and we cannot compare it to natural illnesses. The naysayers had best be still. While it is true that tzora’as is a spiritual-based illness from start to finish, it is also true that every illness has a spiritual cause. In fact, everything has a spiritual cause and effect. The fact that the Torah permits – and even, to a certain extent – obligates us to pursue physical treatments for other illnesses does not negate the fact that the root cause of both the illness and the healing is spiritual.

Chazal teach that in the olden days people did not normally become sick. When their time in this world was up, they would suddenly drop dead without warning. Yaakov asked Hashem to make people ill for two or three days before they died, in order that they should be able to settle their affairs. Hashem was pleased by this request, and started with Yaakov himself. Until the time of King Chizkiyahu, people did not become seriously ill and then recover (Bereishis Rabba 65:9).

The Maharzu notes the apparent discrepancy with Elisha, who lived earlier, becoming ill on three separate occasions, and explains that recovery from illness did not become an established norm until Chizkiyahu’s time.

The Yefeh To’ar similarly explains that the illnesses of Avimelech and his household centuries earlier were special divine decrees to chastise them. However, people did not become ill in the ordinary course of affairs until much later. He further explains that the medical intervention referenced in the Torah in Shemos 21:19, “ורפא ירפא”, refers to injuries, not illnesses affecting the entire body. This view is echoed by the Ibn Ezra on that pasuk.

This distinction is critical for understanding the Torah’s perspective on medical intervention. Illnesses are portrayed throughout Tanach as the direct effect of a spiritual cause, which can therefore only be healed through spiritual intervention. There is not a single case in Tanach of a doctor curing an illness. At best their services were complementary, but they had no power to heal without divine assistance, which the patient was expected to seek. Failure to seek God in a time of illness is a sin, which compounds the original spiritual cause of the illness itself (see Divrei Hayamim II 16:12).

The doctor’s position in the Torah is quite marginal, which stands in stark contrast to the vaunted position of doctors in later times to this day. The role of a doctor in the Torah is to facilitate healing from injuries, offer guidance on healthy living, tend to the sick, and provide proven remedies for illnesses when possible.

The Kli Yakar on Parshat Metzora 14:4 writes as follows:

לפי ששמירת הבריאות אינו צריך סם רק שהרופא מלמדו להועיל שיהיה נשמר מן הדברים המזיקים שלא יבא לידי חולי…אבל מי שכבר נפל אל החולי אז הוא צריך לסמים

To guard one’s health there is no need for a drug, only that the doctor should teach him positive measures so that he can protect himself from the things that cause harm, in order that he should not become ill…but one who has already fallen ill, then he has a need for drugs.

The “drugs” referenced here and in other sources are almost invariably natural remedies, with some unusual exceptions found in the Gemara. Although we have become used to artificial drugs in recent generations, and I am not suggesting we eliminate modern drugs, we should nevertheless recognize that this method of treating illness is a radical departure from everything the human race knew and learned from time immemorial. In light of this, it is absolute madness to rush headlong into any artificial treatment that has not been thoroughly proven, unless in truly extreme circumstances.

The Kli Yakar makes a point that is desperately needed in our time: A healthy person has no need for drugs, only for guidance on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The notion of injecting a perfectly healthy person with an artificial drug – all of which have side effects and can cause severe harm – to prevent a potential illness would have been unthinkable.

Granted, the technology did not yet exist, but the Torah’s perspective on medical intervention is reactive, not proactive. Even reactive intervention needed to be explicitly permitted by the Torah (Bava Kama 85A). We have a hands-off policy until otherwise demonstrated, and leave it to God to bring healing without drugs getting in the way, which they so often do. (See https://www.sefaria.org.il/sheets/26290?lang=bi, where some of the previous sources and others on the subject can be found.)

The claim that the Torah obligates the healthy masses to inject themselves and their children with artificial drugs as a proactive medical treatment is an incredible stretch. The Torah’s default position is that proactive medical interventions, with the risks they necessarily entail, are forbidden until proven otherwise. Even reactive interventions must be proven through transparent, thorough, unbiased studies, and have benefits that clearly outweigh the risks. Speculation, even by those with plaques on their walls, is no substitute for this.

In light of this, how can anyone declare that healthy people must undergo experimental gene treatments, especially with all the doubts and obfuscation surrounding the illness they are intended to alleviate – not even prevent – and with safer alternative treatments available? I defy them to provide clear Torah sources that even permit this, let alone obligate this for everyone or anyone. The general instruction to “guard our lives” is hardly a halachic argument, let alone one that favors this radical position. On the contrary, it is a clear warning to refrain from dubious medical treatments on healthy people that offer minimal, highly speculative benefits at best.

 

 

Medical Intervention in the Torah: Part Two

by Rabbi Chananya Weissman

Chizkiyahu’s illness, like all others mentioned in the Torah, had a direct spiritual cause: he had refrained from marrying and starting a family. The prophet Yeshayahu instructed him to give his final instructions to his household, for he was going to die (see Melachim II 20:1-11). Chizkiyahu replied: “Finish your prophecy and get out! I have a tradition from my forefather [King David], even if the point of the sword is on the neck of a man, he should not hold himself back from mercy.” (Brachos 10A)

Chizkiyahu immediately prayed and cried to Hashem from the depths of his heart. Before Yeshayahu could get far, Hashem spoke and told him to return with a message for Chizkiyahu. He would be granted another fifteen years of life and would witness miraculous salvation from the powerful Assyrian army that had besieged Jerusalem. (This could have been the ultimate redemption and Chizkiyahu could have been Moshiach, but the opportunity was lost [Sanhedrin 94A].)

Yeshayahu then instructed Chizkiyahu to place pressed figs on his inflamed skin, after which it healed. Chazal teach that such a treatment should have been harmful even to healthy skin, but Hashem performed a miracle within a miracle to show that He is in charge of all healing, and nature is really nothing more than a camouflage for His intervention (Melachim II 20:7, Rashi, Radak). This is one of the reasons we must engage in reasonable natural efforts, to maintain “plausible deniability” for those who wish to deny God’s intervention, and thereby preserve free choice (see Ralbag). Without the camouflage of nature, that would be impossible. Nevertheless, the true cause of illness and healing (unless one sabotages his own health) is entirely spiritual.

Deep down we all know this. Even those who trust doctors and scientists far more than they ever deserved nevertheless pray in times of medical distress. We do not pray for the plumber to find the cause of the leak and successfully repair it (though perhaps we should). Ditto with the auto repairman, the electrician, the tailor, and so many others whose services and expertise we rely upon to fix that which needs fixing. We know that there is a step-by-step process to their work, the outcome of which – short of negligence – can be entirely predictable.

Yet when it comes to curing an illness or healing the body, we innately understand that the outcome is never entirely predictable. No doctor has ever cured a patient. The most they can do is facilitate the body’s healing, with God’s permission for it to heal. This is why people are nervous even when they undergo “routine” procedures or take medication, and those with sense pray for it to be successful. The step-by-step process of medical treatment includes a lacuna that no doctor can control: the body’s response to treatment. Unlike repairing a car or a shoe, anything can go wrong.

Despite this, doctors have a vaunted belief in their own abilities (a big reason why “the best doctors go to hell[see below]), and most people place doctors on a pedestal. Faith in science and the abilities of doctors has become a religion unto itself, if not a cult. Even most religious people look to doctors with reverence, the sort of reverence that is given to great rabbis and few others. The stereotypical Jewish mother takes the greatest pride in her son, the doctor.

Chazal teach us that Chizkiyahu did six controversial things, three of which received the approval of the Sages and three of which did not (Pesachim 56A). The three which received approval all countered avoda zara: he dragged the bones of his father, an idolater, on a bed of rope, he pulverized the copper snake that Moshe fashioned (Bamidbar Chapter 21) which the Jews later began to worship, and he hid away the book of cures.

The latter is most intriguing. Rashi explains that people used this book of cures (which the Ramban in his introduction to Bereishis attributes to Shlomo Hamelech) to heal immediately, and they didn’t humble their hearts. Chizkiyahu hid it to compel the people to turn to Hashem.

The Rambam vehemently rejects this explanation (see his Pirush Hamishnayos). He suggests that the book of cures might have contained information about how to prepare various poisons from plants, what illnesses they would cause, and how to cure them. When Chizkiyahu saw that this scientific information was being used to murder people, he hid the book.

However, the Rambam’s preferred explanation appears in Moreh Nevuchim Part 3 Chapter 37. There he writes that the book of cures was based on the idolatrous ideology of the Sabeans, which dated back to the times of Avraham. This ideology was dominant at the time; it combined nature-worship, star-worship, and sexual perversity. Their cultish behaviors were not merely religion, but the accepted science of the time. Consequently, one who veered from their behaviors was considered a heretic, a science-denier, and a threat to society. The Rambam is adamant that the cures in the book were idolatrous and fraudulent.

The Talmud Yerushalmi’s version of the teaching refers to it as a tablet of cures (Pesachim 64A). The Pnei Moshe and Korban Ha’eida commentaries both explain that remedies based on astrology were engraved on the tablet, and it was a great sin for people to follow it. This is similar to the Rambam’s explanation.

When Chizkiyahu was deathly ill, he prayed for Hashem to remember that he had done what was good in God’s eyes. Both Rashi in Pesachim and Radak in Melachim say that this refers to hiding the book of cures. It’s interesting that they single out this action. Perhaps Chizkiyahu’s effort to turn the Jews to Hashem as the source of healing merited his own recovery.

Even more interesting, Chizkiyahu knew that hiding the book would indirectly cause some people to die. He reasoned that the book of instant cures was causing more spiritual harm than it was worth. Although this was most controversial, the Sages agreed with his decision. Did his miraculous salvation after turning to God – when the book of cures was no longer available – validate his decision?

According to Rashi, Ramban, and Radak, it was meritorious to suppress authentic medicinal cures because the people had put their faith in medicine over God. In our day, the cultish faith in modern science and medicine is on steroids (pun intended). This mindset is equated in the Gemara with actual idolatry, and warranted a swing to the opposite extreme – banishing the book of cures – to set people straight.

According to the Rambam, the book of cures was fraudulent, and therefore its banishment was no loss to the sick. If anything, removing this “misinformation” could only benefit them! It seems strange that Chizkiyahu’s decision to hide a book of false, idolatrous, presumably harmful medicines would be controversial. Perhaps the Sages needed to approve this obviously righteous act because Chizkiyahu might have ended the people’s dependence on the fake science without burying an important historical record.

Either way, the Jews of Jerusalem, with a Beis Hamikdash and true prophets in their midst, were so attached to fake science and cultish behavior that it took the brave action of a Moshiach-worthy king to put an end to it.

Stop and reflect on this as you compare to present times. Read the previous paragraph again, and just reflect on it.

Even if the science was authentic – even if it contained the wisdom of King Solomon – it was still appropriate for the book to be hidden, because the people relied on the science too much. When people give power and faith to science over God, it is idolatrous, and it is better for the science to be suppressed.

Compare to present times and reflect on that as well.

A reader recently emailed me the following remarkable comment: “I noticed a special fact today while reading the Torah. In the Greek translation (Septuaginta) I read that Pharaoh called his magicians to perform miracles. The word for magician in Greek is “Pharmacon” as you surely know [I didn’t]. These are the Pharmacists of today. They could only make some plagues worse but not take them away. How topical…So this biblical story from Egypt now gets a whole new perspective.”

If modern pharmacology does not have its actual roots in idolatry, the slavish worship of white coats, degrees, and establishment “experts” is clearly idolatrous. There is overwhelming evidence that the system is rife with corruption and that much of what is taken for granted as “scientific fact” is more akin to faith in cult leaders. Those who scorn religious faith have created a substitute that demands complete faith and ritual obedience.

Natural interventions are intended to be a camouflage for God’s intervention, not a substitute. This is even when the science behind them is indisputable, all the more so when it is shrouded in deceit, greed, politics, and conflicts of interest. Those who gamble their wellbeing and their lives on such science are certainly turning away from God and committing a great sin.

We pray three times a day in the Shemoneh Esrei for God to heal us, referring to Him as the רופא נאמן, the faithful healer. There are many doctors, but only God is the true healer, only God can be relied upon. If we must turn to doctors at times, we must do so with the understanding that they are nothing more than a camouflage for God’s healing. Their place in society deserves no special reverence, no more than anyone else who does a job and relies on God for the outcome to be successful. Doctors and medicine exist to provide a cover for God’s intervention, not to replace it.

We are blessed to live in a time when the idolatry of medical worship is being destroyed before our eyes and its priests exposed as frauds. Let us live according to the Torah, turn to God, banish the fear, and enjoy life.

The Best Doctors Go to Hell

by Rabbi Chananya Weissman

…The last Mishna in Kiddushin has a remarkable comment by Rabbi Yehuda in the name of Abba Gurya: “The best of the doctors will go to hell.” Not surprisingly, this has been explained in a variety of ways by the commentators. Here is a brief summary (some sources found with the aid of the Steinsaltz commentary and a post on talmudology.com):

1) He is overconfident in his ability to prevent illness through his knowledge of nutrition and science, and does not humble himself before God. (Rashi)

2) Sometimes he kills people through carelessness. (Rashi)

3) He does not treat the poor. (Rashi)

4) Sometimes he gives up on people’s lives too soon and does not bother to treat them, thereby causing their death. (Meiri)

5) Sometimes he does not try hard enough for a patient. (Meiri)

6) He does not admit when he doesn’t understand an illness and pretends to have expertise when he does not. (Meiri)

7) He thinks he is superior to everyone and does not consult with others for advice. (Maharsha)

8) He is engaged in matters of life and death, yet does not always appreciate the gravity of the situation. (Tiferes Yisrael)

9) Doctors are indiscriminate in their treatments; what heals one person will kill another, and treating everyone the same way is tantamount to malpractice. (Ramban)

10) A doctor who is not also knowledgeable in God’s Torah will see his practice as just a job, strictly a physical and material occupation with no higher purpose. (Maharal)…

… – the Torah explicitly authorizes them to practice, and they fill a clear need in society – …

At least doctors must demonstrate proficiency in medicine and science, must undergo years of training and apprenticeship, must maintain objective professional standards, must answer to certifying boards and regulators, and can be held accountable for sloppy work and poor results. In spite of all this, it is barely enough to keep doctors in check, and the best of them go to hell.

…One final commentator puts a positive spin on the Mishna. Those who have a gift for healing have a divine responsibility to use it, otherwise it is as if they are shedding blood and will surely go to hell. (Tur)

Snyder: “While Many On The Right Are Sleeping, Many On The Left Are Promising To Bring War To The Streets Of America”

Tyler Durden Wed, 06/27/2018 https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-06-27/while-many-right-are-sleeping-many-left-are-promising-bring-war-streets-america

Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

You might want to start taking the radical left seriously.  When they tell us “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet” and that “this is just the beginning”, they are making threats that they intend to back up.

 

There have been other times in modern American history when the left has resorted to physical intimidation and violence, but I believe that what is coming is going to far surpass anything that we have ever experienced before.  Of course not everyone agrees with me.

On Monday I authored a piece about the “civil war” that is rapidly approaching, and there were some that loudly criticized me for it.  They insisted that we didn’t have anything to worry about from the left and that I was blowing things out of proportion.  As you read the rest of this article, I hope that everyone will start to see that I am not exaggerating the threat one bit.

And what we should all be able to agree on is that the radical left is super energized right now.  Just look at what happened on Tuesday.  28-year-old radical socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez absolutely crushed 10-term congressman Joe Crowley in a Democratic primary in New York.  She was outspent 18 to 1, and in normal times something like that would never happen.

But these aren’t normal times.

While many on the right are in a deep state of slumber, the radical left is seething with anger.  Many of them truly believe that Donald Trump is the closest thing to Hitler that America has ever seen, and they also believe that anyone that supports Donald Trump is essentially a modern-day Nazi.

And if you take that line of thinking to the rational conclusion, any form of resistance against Nazi tyranny is justified, including the use of violence.

For a few moments I would like to examine an article that a progressive writer named Hamilton Nolan authored for Splinter entitled “This Is Just The Beginning”.  In his piece, he posed an ominous question to those of us that are conservatives…

Do you think that being asked to leave a restaurant, or having your meal interrupted, or being called by the public is bad? My fascism-enabling friends, this is only the beginning.

It doesn’t take much reading between the lines to figure out what he means by that.

In fact, later on in the article he tells us exactly what he meant

The U.S. had thousands of domestic bombings per year in the early 1970s. This is what happens when citizens decide en masse that their political system is corrupt, racist, and unresponsive. The people out of power have only just begun to flex their dissatisfaction. The day will come, sooner that you all think, when Trump administration officials will look back fondly on the time when all they had to worry about was getting hollered at at a Mexican restaurant.

For those of you that still don’t get it, he is openly telling us that domestic terrorism is coming to U.S. cities.

There are many on the left that actually crave a violent revolution, and they look back on Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground as inspiration.  The following comes from Art Moore

In the years 1971 and 1972 alone, according to the FBI, more than 2,000 bombs were planted throughout the United States by domestic terrorist groups. Among the chief culprits was the Weather Underground, led by Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dorn, who hosted a fundraiser at their home to launch Barack Obama’s political career. Among the Weather Underground’s targets were the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol.

Hamilton Nolan is not just some crank.  He has actually written an article for the New York Times, and he is quite popular in leftist circles.

In his piece for Splinter he was quite careful not to call for bombings himself, but at the conclusion of his article he did state that it was time to “start fighting” Trump and to begin treating members of the Trump administration as “criminals”

Stop working for this man. Stop enabling him. Stop assisting him. Start fighting him. The people who are responsible for what is happening are not going to get out of this with their happy wealthy respectable lives unscathed. This is a country that locks poor people in cages for decades for trying to make $20. This is a country that is “tough on crime.” Remember? And the ones who make the laws are not going to like what happens when America starts to regard them as the criminals.

So far, Nolan’s piece has been read more than 798,000 times.

And of course Nolan is far from alone.  This week radical leftists all over the country have been circulating a video on social media that seems to imply that Trump supporters should be gunned down at restaurants.

If this kind of hatred continues to be spewed relentlessly, it is only a matter of time before widespread violence breaks out.

Sadly, progressive leaders just continue to get more and more heated with their rhetoric.  For example, Michael Moore just compared Donald Trump to a rapist and his supporters to accomplices to rape

Grabien News reported filmmaker and frequent MSNBC guest Michael Moore likened Trump voters to accomplices to rape.

“If you hold down the woman while the rapist is raping her, and you didn’t rape her — are you a rapist?”

Moore added: “Anybody who enables, anybody who votes for and supports a racist is a racist. You are culpable, white America, I’m sorry.”

If you don’t believe that chaos is coming to the streets of America, just go hang out in places where radical leftists talk with one another on the Internet.

They are quite clear on what is ahead if they can’t take back control of America at the voting box, and it isn’t pretty.

And to a certain extent it has already started.  In a recent article, Kevin McCulloughsummarized just a few of the things that we have seen happen in recent days…

Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was literally shouted at until she left a dinner at an eatery near the White House. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders just Friday evening was told she would not be served (nor her family) at the Red Hen eatery of the Shenandoah Valley in Lexington, Virginia. She was told she was refused service was because she works for the President. Secretary Nielsen has had additional groups camped outside her house playing loud speakers, disturbing the peace of she and her neighbors. Entitled leftist celebrities like Robert De Niro bogart awards shows encouraging viewers to sexually violate the President. Washed up former TV stars like Tom Arnold claim they will harass the First Lady at her son’s school. And true Hollywood losers like Peter Fonda claim that Sarah Sanders’ as well as Melania Trump’s children should literally be raped by pedophiles and sex traffickers.

Sadly, the list keeps growing.  On Monday, a group of angry leftists ambushed Senator Mitch McConnell’s vehicle while he was leaving an event, and on Tuesday authorities in Los Angeles arrested 25 people that were protesting in anticipation of the arrival of Attorney General Jeff Sessions…

Arrests were made as hundreds of protesters gathered in downtown Los Angeles Tuesday ahead of a planned visit by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Twenty-five people were taken into custody after the peaceful organized protest was declared an unlawful assembly by Los Angeles police. Clergy were seen among those being arrested.

Crowds holding signs were given a five-minute warning to disperse by LAPD before the arrests took place, according to authorities.

All it is going to take is one large trigger event to set this country ablaze from coast to coast.

Anger and frustration are already at unprecedented levels, and this is happening even though the economy is performing relatively well.

Imagine if it wasn’t.

The Republican Party has just released a new video entitled “Unhinged”, and I recommend that you take a few moments to watch it.  If the radical left is this crazed now, what are they going to be like once things really start to go bad in this country?

For now, many on the right are ignoring this growing threat on the left, but I believe that is a huge mistake.

Chaos is coming to the streets of America, and it is going to be here a lot sooner than many conservatives would dare to imagine.

Headless Robespierre’s Cautionary Tale For The ‘Alt Left’ Unleashed On America

by Tyler Durden Sun, 07/08/2018 https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-07-08/headless-robespierres-cautionary-tale-alt-left-unleashed-america
Submitted by John Griffing,

America is on the cusp of something it has never truly experienced: mob rule.

To “feed” a mob, witch-hunts are essential. New enemies must be in constant supply to keep the mob moving. Problematically, witch-hunts never end well for the witch-hunters.

Just ask Maximilien Robespierre, one of the chief architects of the French Revolution and the infamous “Reign of Terror.”

It was 1794. Heads were rolling, literally, and “Madame la Guillotine” was more popular than ever. At first, the mob was content with the heads of King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette. The king bankrupted France by helping America win its independence with mountains of debt, all while a horrible famine ravaged the nation simultaneously. Many died of starvation. It was during the famine that the queen told her subjects, “Let them eat cake.”

With the king and queen gone, the mob’s appetite grew. They now required the heads of the aristocracy.

After the aristocracy was gone, Robespierre’s Committee on Public Safety (a massive misnomer) began sending anyone and everyone to the Guillotine — even other members of the committee itself — in order to satisfy the appetite of the mob. Georges Danton, the other influential thinker behind the French revolution, was executed by the committee.

Royals lurked under every rock and behind every tree, and unsupported suspicion was the only thing needed to deprive a person of their head.

In the ultimate twist of irony, the mob eventually required Robespierre’s head.

The lesson? For mobs, it’s never enough. And communities that passively surrender to mob rule in the face of civil unrest are like those who feed a crocodile, hoping to be eaten last.

Replace the revolutionary French with the “alt left,” and a disturbing pattern emerges. With the violence perpetrated by the “alt left” reaching barbaric levels, it is time to stop tolerating lies about their motives.

The“alt left” is not against racism or white nationalism. They are for anarchy — and that’s a big difference. In short, the “alt left” is a mindless mob.

And just like Robespierre’s “Reign of Terror,” the “alt left” mob may eventually accomplish its presumed objectiveforcibly removing President Donald Trump from office, one way or another. But that will likely not be enough to satisfy the moving target of “alt-left” bloodlust, because the stated objective is never the real objective.

For the mob, breaking stuff and hurting people (often for pay) is the real objective. And for Antifas, the ever-evolving “cause” is a facade to justify animal behavior unfit for a free and open society.

Sure, not all Democrats are Antifas, but all Antifas are undoubtedly Democrats. Consider that top Democrats — many of them seasoned public servants — now regularly incite violent riots and actively promote the president’s assassination.

Here’s a list of 133 savage acts of documented violence (or incitement) by far-left Democrats against Trump supporters, Republicans and White House officials, including actor Peter Fonda’s call to throw Trump’s 11-year-old son Barron in a cage with pedophiles, and the latest example of outright assault against a person wearing a MAGA hat — this time a young teenager.

The violence advocated by the far left makes them complicit in the breakdown of society and the subsequent rise of mob rule. And the advocates of mob violence are not just fringe radicals or a few nut-jobs. Their ranks also boast senior Democratic Party officials and members of former President Barack Obama’s administration.

Only a week ago, California Democratic U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters openly called for the “harassment” and physical intimidation of Trump officials. Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer condemned Waters, but it must be remembered that last year he told New York state to pull police protection from First Lady Melania Trump and Barron. Democratic 2016 vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine called for riots in streets after Trump’s victoryand was joined by former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who also called for riots.

Former CIA Director John “Benghazi” Brennan — a man who once voted for a Communist presidential candidate and may have converted to Islam — twice called for a coup against Trump. Obama’s Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Rosa Brooks went as far as putting a plan for a military coup in writing around the same time CNN was running hypothetical “what if Trump was brutally murdered before the inauguration?” segments.

Democratic-aligned mainstream media and left-leaning entertainment icons are also guilty of perpetuating the rise of mob rule. Former MSNBC heavyweight Keith Olbermann begged foreign intelligence agencies to overthrow the U.S. government, and did not see the irony. More recently, the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin asked mobs to harass Trump and White House officials for “life.”

And what about entertainers? Well, they are getting a lot less entertaining, and a lot more felonious. Bill Maher joked that Ronald Reagan shooter John Hinckley, Jr. should be released, so that he can kill Trump, and only a few months ago, comedienne Kathy Griffin photographed herself holding a life-like wax model of Trump’s severed head in the style of ISIS. Last week, far-left filmmaker Michael Moore said he would lead a citizen army of “one million people” to “surround” Washington, D.C. in order to prevent lawful Supreme Court nominations by Trump. Famous musicians are also promoting violence. Madonna said she is “thinking” of bombing the White House to kill Trump, Snoop Dog released a music video depicting Trump’s murder and singer John Legend applauded Rep. Maxine Waters for advocating violence, while subsequently making similar appeals himself.

Michael Moore: Fahrenheit 11/9 | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO)

By any measure, Democrats now support mob ruleEvery single time a Democrat advocates violence in place of discussion, they are supporting mob rule, not democracy, and they should be treated as potentially hostile.

When someone – anyone – starts a conversation with an assumption that the other person is evil, there can be no further conversation. Moreover, logical debate is not possible with violent mobs in ninja costumes viciously attacking those with whom they politically disagree.

History repeats itself, especially when mobs burn the pages on which it is written, and destroy monuments to the events history records. Tragically, Democrats only pay attention to history when it involves Nazis, and mostly fictional Nazis.

Robespierre speaks from the grave: mobs are never good, especially for the mobs.

Was Trump ‘The Mule’?

by Tyler Durden Wednesday, February 24, 2021 – 17:40 https://www.zerohedge.com/political/was-trump-mule

Authored by Jim Quinn via The Bunring Platform blog,

“Excellence, he is known as the Mule. He is spoken of little, in a factual sense, but I have gathered the scraps and fragments of knowledge and winnowed out the most probable of them. He is apparently a man of neither birth nor standing. His father, unknown. His mother, dead in childbirth. His upbringing, that of a vagabond. His education, that of the tramp worlds, and the backwash alleys of space. He has no name other than that of the Mule, a name reportedly applied by himself to himself, and signifying, by popular explanation, his immense physical strength, and stubbornness of purpose.” 

– Isaac Asimov, Foundation and Empire

The Mule and Trump

“The fall of Empire, gentlemen, is a massive thing, however, and not easily fought. It is dictated by a rising bureaucracy, a receding initiative, a freezing of caste, a damming of curiosity—a hundred other factors. It has been going on, as I have said, for centuries, and it is too majestic and massive a movement to stop.”

– Isaac Asimov, Foundation

In March 2017, a mere two months after the stunningly unexpected victory of Donald Trump over the Deep State hand picked representative of dark forces – Hillary Clinton, I wrote a three-part article based upon Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy, attempting to connect Trump’s elevation as the Gray Champion of this Fourth Turning to the plot of Asimov’s masterpiece. The three articles: Foundation – Fall of the American Galactic EmpireFoundation and Empire: Is Donald Trump the Mule?; and Second Foundation: Empire Crumbling, landed with a dud, generating few views and not many comments.

I thought it was a creative look at the fledgling Trump presidency, a Deep State intent on destroying him, integrated within the context of Asimov’s story of galactic subterfuge, controlling populations through mathematical mechanisms, and the rise of an individual upending the plans of elitists. I chalked up the dis-interest to the fact many people had never read the books, therefore could not relate to the comparison between Trump, the Mule, and Hari Seldon’s plan.

The other possibility was the fact I was already pondering Trump failing in his effort to defeat the Deep State and drain the Swamp. Trump supporters were still ecstatic with their victory, believing he could defeat the dark forces aligned against him, and resistant to the thought he might lose. Four years later, with the perspective of what has happened, we can honestly assess the suppositions I made in that article.

For those not familiar with Asimov’s trilogy, The Mule was a powerful mentalic mutant, warlord, and conqueror who posed the greatest threat to the Seldon Plan.

The plan involves the two Foundations. The First Foundation is the bastion of physical science and political order while the Second Foundation is a covert group of people hidden away who are experts in mentalics and psychohistorical prediction. Seldon’s science of psychohistory was outstanding at predicting the behavior of large populations but worthless in trying to predict what an individual might do.

The emergence of the Mule, a mentalic mutant with an acute telepathic ability to modify the emotions of human beings, could not have been predicted by the Seldon Plan, focused as it was on the statistical movements of vast numbers of peoples and populations across the galaxy. The Mule’s acute telepathic ability to modify the emotions of human beings derailed one of the basic assumptions of Hari Seldon’s psychohistory – that, in general, the responses of human populations to given stimuli will remain the same.

trump-asimove-the-mule

The Mule was the unpredictable variable in the equations of history and the greatest threat to the Seldon Plan. He disrupts the inevitability of the continued evolution of the First Foundation and potential early ending of the Dark Age. The Mule, through telepathic manipulation, defeats and takes over the Foundation’s growing empire, which has become increasingly control-oriented and out-of-touch with the outer planets in its rapidly expanding realm of influence.

The term mule invokes feelings of strength, stubbornness, and the ability to power forward despite obstacles. That description fits Trump perfectly and his ability to inspire millions of Americans through emotional appeals to patriotism and demonizing his left wing political and media enemies. His powers of persuasion weren’t mentalic, but his appeal to flyover country Americans was baffling to the liberal elites on the coasts and the RINOs who pretended to be conservative but were nothing more than grifters and neo-con warmongers.

Foundation-Cover-Header

I did not associate Hari Seldon with any particular person on the scene today when I wrote my article in 2017. Hari Seldon was an intellectual who created the Foundation, made up of other academic intellectuals. Then he set up a Second Foundation of even more talented intellectuals as a backup plan in case the Foundation failed. I saw Seldon and his ensemble of elitist academics and intellectual snobs as pompous control freaks on par with the Washington DC and Wall Street elitists like Pelosi, Schumer, McConnell, Yellen, Powell, Dimon and Buffet. They constitute the Foundation.

The Second Foundation was hidden in plain sight, operating in the shadows, unknown to the masses, and controlling the galaxy from behind the curtain. They were the Galactic Deep State.

I now see the Seldon character as Bill Gates, a college dropout geek who lucked into becoming a multi-billionaire with one decent idea, who now portrays himself as an expert in medical science, vaccines, farming, climate change, population right sizing, social media censorship and politics.

His billions entitle him to pontificate his psycho-babble propaganda on captured corporate media outlets, much like Seldon using his psychohistory to predict the future. Billionaire egos are immense. Gates flies on his private jet around the world spewing CO2 while preaching the gospel of lockdowns, drinking reprocessed piss, and forcing the masses to eat synthetic beef and bugs to save the planet.

Bill Gates drinking reclaimed water

I see the Second Foundation as representative of the Deep State. This amalgamation of the likes of Clapper, Comey, Brennan, Clinton, Soros, Bloomberg, Zuckerberg, Bezos, Dorsey, Cook, Schmidt, Schwab, and plethora of other sociopaths in the government, media, military, academia, and corporate world spent the last four years attempting to neutralize and neuter Donald Trump (aka The Mule). These affluent, highly educated, narcissistic, sanctimonious, malevolent scumbags, who believe they are the smartest men in the world, operate behind the scenes as the invisible government, manipulating the mechanisms of society and pulling the wires controlling the public mind.

There is virtually no difference between Seldon’s psychohistory and Bernays’ propaganda. These sociopaths believe they are entitled to run the world as they choose, with no input or resistance from the ignorant masses allowed. When the basket of deplorables rose up and elected Trump, the Deep State went into overdrive to nullify and defeat him. My prediction about his presidency came to be, with my ending question still up for debate:

His first two months in power will likely reflect his entire presidency. The Washington establishment and sinister Deep State players will attempt to thwart Trump’s every move. They have already impeded his immigration controls and attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare, while using their illegal surveillance state techniques to undermine his administration. The surveillance agencies, who are supposed to act on his behalf, are clearly trying to subvert his presidency. Leaks and fake news designed to sabotage the credibility of Trump and his administration will continue. Will the fear of retribution from mysterious surveillance state operatives convince Trump to fall into line and become a submissive lackey, no longer making waves for the Deep State?

Deep State capital building roots

The level of Deep State interference to undermine the Trump presidency reached extreme levels after those first two months of relatively minor meddling. What followed was a three-year Russia-gate farce as the DOJ, FBI and CIA conspired with Obama to unseat Trump by creating a fake Russia interference narrative based on a bullshit dossier, using it to have Comey weaponize the FBI against a duly elected president. Then his AG swamp creature allowed Mueller and his Hillary supporting cronies to torture Trump for two years before calling it quits with absolutely no charges. All along, the left-wing media cackled and crowed, producing a prodigious amount of fake news, which was duly called out by Trump.

The unrelenting negative coverage, despite successes on many fronts by Trump, revealed the true nature of the Deep State coup to overthrow a sitting president. The never-ending coup was ramped up again in 2019 as Pelosi and her flying monkeys – Chinese spy-shagger, Swalwell (aka the farter) and the socialist squad of hate mongers, drummed up a fake impeachment against Trump based upon a phone call regarding actual provable Biden family corruption in the Ukraine. The impeachment was a dead-on arrival political stunt to disparage Trump going into the election year.

But the Deep State coup de grace for cancelling and castrating Trump (aka The Mule) was the Covid conspiracy, which fell into the laps of Trump’s enemies through the accidental or purposeful release of a highly contagious, highly non-lethal flu virus from a Chinese bio-weapon lab, funded by Fauci and other U.S. governmental entities. After the impeachment charade imploded in January, and the Democrat presidential field of dementia patients, communists, whores, and morons pathetically made their case to replace Trump, a November victory seemed assured for Trump, as the economy was OK and the stock market was booming.

But then they were presented with a faux crisis, and as everyone knows – you can never let a good crisis go to waste. The Deep State, democratic governors, democratic mayors, the left-wing loving media, the Silicon Valley social media billionaire censorship tyrants, and Big Pharma combined forces to turn the nation into quivering cowering masked sheep, begging to be corralled and sheered by traitorous lying authoritarians demanding their acquiescence.

Covid-19 survival rates by age

Throwing in systematic racism, elevating violent felon scum to sainthood, encouraging BLM and ANTIFA terrorists to burn cities, assault police, storm the White House, and blaming it all on Trump was a genius move. By using the Covid hysteria as a cover for demanding unlimited and uncontrolled mail-in voting, with no signature verification or time limits on counting votes, the Democrats assured themselves of certain victory in the limited number of swing states.

And still, Trump was on his way to victory again as of midnight on election night. This is when a halt was called by the Deep State, Dominion voting machines were “re-programmed” and suitcases full of “newly discovered” mail-in ballots appeared, with 97% of the votes going to Dementia Joe. He truly had put together the best election fraud team in history. That is why he never needed to leave his basement during the campaign.

Despite hundreds of documented accounts of massive voter fraud, eye witness accounts of fraudulent mail-in ballots, statistical analysis proving what supposedly happened with voting machines could not possibly happen, and the absolute laughability of Basement Biden actually getting 80 million votes, the Deep State co-conspirators closed ranks and did not allow Trump and his team a fair day in court to make their case. They had successfully stolen the election and accomplished their four-year long coup.

In order to ensure Trump did not rise again, Pelosi and her compadres used Trump’s powers of persuasion against him, by exploiting his peaceful January 6 rally in DC, as a means to lure some of his useful idiot supporters into entering the Capitol (with the Capitol police opening the doors), enticed by a bunch of ANTIFA/BLM provocateurs and taking selfies, stealing podiums, and milling around, until one of them got shot.

This fake news “armed insurrection” (despite no firearms used or confiscated) was then weaponized by Pelosi and her useful idiot followers to conduct an even more farcical impeachment of a president who was already out of office, playing golf in Florida. This tempest in teapot clown show of idiocracy played out over a few days, breathlessly covered by the MSNBC dullards and CNN dimwits, until it died under its own weight of superficial lunacy, with the Chief Justice refusing to preside and Democrat prosecutors caught doctoring evidence.

Senate acquits Trump 2nd time

This failure to drive a stake through the heart of mule-headed Trump and insure he does not rise from the dead in 2024 to assume power once again, will not stop his vast number of enemies from keeping him stuck in Florida to live out his days on this earth as a failed president. Soros funded attorney generals across the land will hound Trump and his family with legal entanglements unless he promises to be a non-participant in government forever. Will the fear of financial retribution and consequences from a legal system that is stacked in favor of his enemies convince Trump to stand down? In my four-year-old article I asked these questions:

Will Trump’s reign resemble the reign of The Mule? The Mule’s conquest was astonishingly fast. He defeated the Foundation and established the Union of Worlds after only five years. The unpredictability of his arrival and rare mental talents befuddled the Foundation. Then he inexplicably paused in his campaign of conquests. Instead, he launched repeated expeditions in search of the Second Foundation. The Second Foundation, through unyielding pressure and generating fear of the unknown into the mind of The Mule, was able undermine his plans of conquest and turn him into a non-disruptive, toothless, nonthreatening, passive figurehead. As Trump’s best laid plans are obstructed, agenda foiled, and legislation hindered, will his enthusiasm for governance wane?

Washington DC Capital Building incurtion

Based on what I have seen since the January 6 staged event at the Capitol, it appears Trump’s will to fight has subsided, even though he will continue to do interviews and give speeches to burnish his image as an outsider, continuing to fight for his 75 million followers. His influence didn’t help win the two Georgia run-off elections. It is highly unlikely he runs for president again in 2024.

He will utilize his popularity to invigorate his real estate and potential media empire. It will be all about the Benjamin’s from here on out. He surprised himself with his unlikely victory in 2016 and will be busy writing his best- selling book about the adventure in the near future. Trump TV is practically a given, but he will not be anything more than a thorn in the side of the Deep State (Second Foundation) going forward. He will no longer be a legitimate threat to their Plan.

Trump was a disrupting factor, disturbing the best laid plans of the global elitist establishment and revealing the hidden agendas of the Deep State. He had no support from the GOP establishment. In most cases, they undermined his efforts. He hired them into his cabinet and they continuously stabbed him in the back. Having your supposed allies work against you, in cahoots with the Democrats, surveillance state apparatus, all the alphabet agencies, and 90% of the mainstream and social media propaganda machinery, and you come to the realization we are ruled by a Uni-party of globalist elite using their immense wealth to manipulate and control the masses.

Sociopaths like Gates, Soros, Schwab, and Obama believe they are the smartest men on the planet and can pull the strings, making the puppet masses do as they command. Based on the last year, it appears they are right. The neutralization of Trump has convinced themselves of their invincibility. Their hubris blinds them to the wisdom of the bible – Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.

US-Gross-National-Debt-2011-through-2021-02-16

Not only is the Great Reset, green new deal, communist doctrine implementation not going to reverse the downward spiral of the American Empire, but the last year of horrific political and financial decisions and imminent execution of the left-wing agenda through their empty senile vessel will accelerate the unavoidable collapse. MMT plus QE to infinity will surely solve all our problems.

The national debt went from $20 trillion when Trump was elected to $28 trillion today, and $30 trillion within the next year. It took 219 years to accumulate the first $10 trillion of debt, 9 years to accumulate the next $10 trillion of debt, and now less than five years to accumulate the next $10 trillion. Meanwhile, GDP has barely grown by 2% per year and household income has been stagnant for decades. Anyone who thinks this is sustainable, economically healthy, or representative of free market capitalism is either delusional or lying to promote their agenda of you owning nothing and being happy about it, while eating bugs and drinking processed piss.

Fed balance sheet-Chart-6-2

Asimov’s trilogy documents the fall of the Galactic Empire, based upon the Fall of the Roman Empire, and written during the fall of the Third Reich. Whether Trump delayed or accelerated the Fall of the American Empire is inconsequential, as no one can reverse the coming collapse at this point. Technology does not improve human nature, create wisdom, or provide understanding. Humanity is incapable of change. The same weaknesses and self- destructive traits which have plagued us throughout history are as prevalent today as they ever were.

Empires are created by corruptible men whose failings, flaws, and desire for power, control and wealth never change. Decades of blunders, awful decisions, incompetent leadership, dishonesty and unconcealed treachery have paved a pathway to ruin for the American Empire. The outward appearance of strength disguises the internal rot, which will be revealed when the coming storm arrives with suddenness and a surprising fierceness.

“Mr. Advocate, the rotten tree-trunk, until the very moment when the storm-blast breaks it in two, has all the appearance of might it ever had. The storm-blast whistles through the branches of the Empire even now. Listen with the ears of psychohistory, and you will hear the creaking.”

– Isaac AsimovFoundation

The American Empire is crumbling under the weight of military overreach; the totalitarian synergy between Big Tech and Big Gov.; destruction of the Constitution by traitorous surveillance state apparatchiks; the burden of unpayable debts; currency debasement; cultural decay; civic degeneration; diversity and deviancy trumping common culture and normality; pervasive corruption at every level of government; globalist agendas; and the failure of myopic leaders to deal with the real problems.

statue of liberty under water

In the last year we have crossed our proverbial Rubi-covid, willingly trading our freedom and liberties for the perception of safety. We’ve past the point of no return. Asimov’s analogy of the wolf, horse and man has never been more apt than now. In our present- day version, the wolf is a China flu with a 99.7% survival rate that only kills the old and infirm. The horse is the American public (and most of the global population) living in constant fear of a non-lethal virus killing them at any moment. No matter how irrational, they desperately want to believe “experts” who authoritatively declare the steps necessary to save the world from this scourge.

The man is an amalgamation of Gates, Soros, Fauci, and the petty authoritarian politicians (Cuomo, Newsom, Whitmer, Wolf, Murphy) wielding power across the land. The man offered to save the horse from the wolf on condition of being given the power to disregard the Constitution, lockdown the country, destroy small businesses, create mass unemployment, mandate masks, crush free speech (except during BLM and ANTIFA riots), suspend the 4th Amendment, force experimental vaccinations upon the masses, and create $10 trillion of new debt, giving most of it to Wall Street, mega-corporations, and Big Pharma. And as an added benefit, get rid of a president who did not cooperate with their Global Reset agenda.

“A horse having a wolf as a powerful and dangerous enemy lived in constant fear of his life. Being driven to desperation, it occurred to him to seek a strong ally. Whereupon he approached a man, and offered an alliance, pointing out that the wolf was likewise an enemy of the man. The man accepted the partnership at once and offered to kill the wolf immediately, if his new partner would only co-operate by placing his greater speed at the man’s disposal. The horse was willing, and allowed the man to place bridle and saddle upon him.

The man mounted, hunted down the wolf, and killed him. “The horse, joyful and relieved, thanked the man, and said: ‘Now that our enemy is dead, remove your bridle and saddle and restore my freedom.’ “Whereupon the man laughed loudly and replied, ‘Never!’ and applied the spurs with a will.” – Isaac AsimovFoundation

So, today we find ourselves one year into “15 days to slow the spread” and millions of “horses” have asked the “man” to remove their bridle and saddle and restore our freedom. Miraculously, cases, hospitalizations, and deaths have plunged since the insertion of Dementia Joe into the White House by his Deep State handlers. The vaccine and mask propaganda campaigns are being ratcheted up, emperor Gates is on TV every other day expounding on covid, climate, synthetic food, population control, and the need for more control by billionaires like himself.

As millions demand their freedoms back, Gates, Fauci, Soros and Schwab laugh loudly and proclaim we can never go back to the way it was. They will apply the spurs of the “New Normal” and “Great Reset”. We failed to heed the wisdom of Ben Franklin and will pay a heavy price for our cowardice and subservience to totalitarian global elitists. The Mule has been defeated.

“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” – Ben Franklin – 1775

Weimar Los Angeles: “You Can’t Go Home Again”

by Tyler Durden 06July2021 – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/weimar-los-angeles-you-cant-go-home-again

Authored by Roger Simon, op-ed via The Epoch Times,

When I saw video online of Antifa attacking demonstrators in front of the Wi Spa in Los Angeles’ Koreatown, I realized why, in the immortal words of Thomas Wolfe, “You Can’t Go Home Again.”

But unlike Wolfe, who, in his famous novel, was loath to return to his native Asheville, North Carolina, I am in the south, resistant to returning to California where I lived most of my adult life.

It was the homeless coming down in the morning from Mulholland Drive on the way to free food and not-so-free drugs, making even walking the dog a perilous activity, that had initially propelled our family out—at least in part.

But things have apparently only gotten worse since, considering what transpired at the Wi Spa. That was a place I knew because, in the eighties and nineties and into the first few years of this century, I had become an occasional habitué of LA’s Korean spas, excellent places to relax in the hot water, although I can only recall patronizing Wi once.

Nothing happened there then remotely similar to what occurred the other day—a man walking buck naked into the women’s only side, declaring his “gender identity” female, while not bothering to hide the contrary evidence in front of the assembled biological women and their children.

Later, a black woman expressed her justifiable anger at this display before management only to be herself confronted by a particularly obnoxious “woke” individual defending the right of the gender dysphoric to freak out kids. (This is also on video at the link, if you haven’t seen it.)

The next chapter had defenders of traditional human privacy (aka “normals” as my friend Kurt Schlichter calls them) protesting in front of the spa when they are confronted by the violent Antifa psychos who are apparently immune to any kind of serious prosecution by the district attorneys of Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle or, for that matter, our Department of Justice.

What are we to make of this other than it is all too predictable by now?

America, in its blue states at least, and they are doing their best to spread the poison elsewhere, has turned us into a land of the “woke” where near-total conformity rules the day, the populace terrified to speak up against the real intention behind this basic Marxist behavior—the destruction of the family as we know it.

When you look at the silent faces standing in the lobby of the Wi Spa while the “woke” spokesman pontificates, you see this fear and all you can say is “Welcome to Weimar Los Angeles.”

Indeed, the direction of our republic is eerily similar to that of Weimar, Germany, in everything from social mores to inflation.

One of the more interesting books that gives a sense of what it was like then is—doubly apropos since we are in the middle of Wimbledon—“A Terrible Splendor” about the epochal 1937 Davis Cup duel between America’s Don Budge and Germany’s Baron von Cramm—a handsome gay man who was under the thumb of the Gestapo at that time for his proclivities so that he would win against the Yankee.

Meanwhile, license prevailed for others in 1930s Berlin beyond anything we would even conceive of today.

What the self-described “progressives” of LA and elsewhere have to learn is this is not about whether you are pro or anti gay. There are plenty of gays on the right these days. Or how you feel about the transgendered. Personally, I’m live and let live.

It is about something much more basic we all learned in school when school really was school and not a Cultureal Revolution indoctrination camp. I’m going to put it in caps, lest it be forgotten:

RESPECT THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS!

Disrespecting others is what Antifa, BLM and virtually everyone else on the left is doing now at a level unknown since the Weimar Republic.

We all know how that ended.

The USA 2020 ‘Bolshevik Revolution’

Foreign influences are apparent in the Democrat jettisoning of American values, and jettison they did. Op-ed.

Kenneth S. Abramowitz , November 24 , 2020 7:21 PM http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/291905

In November 1917 in Russia, Vladimir Lenin seized power as leader of the Bolshevik (Russian Social Democratic Labor) Party, even though the party had received less than 25% of the votes in the October national election. How did Lenin and his communist agents accomplish this feat?

 

Evangelist and author John L. Kachelman, Jr. recently posted an article in the Gateway Pundit called “Democrats Are Using Tactics of the Marxists of 1917 in Russia to Disrupt 2020 Election”. He explained how Lenin did it, highlighting ten Bolshevik strategies:

 

1) “Conducting years of preparatory work in misleading information and propaganda.” Now Americans are suffering the consequences of 50 years of infiltration by communist ideology into our public life, the educational and cultural instutions, the media, and the entertainment industries.

 

2) “Contesting voting results.” Now Americans are suffering the consequences of poorly conceived mail-in ballot systems and rogue, vote-manipulating software, designed to influence the outcome.

 

3) “Claiming the poor are being deprived of their votes.” Now Americans are suffering the consequences of using the COVID-19 pandemic to scare ‘poor’ voters into using mail-in ballots because voting in-person would be ‘too risky’.

 

4) “Extending voting timelines to two months.” Now Americans are suffering the consequences of arbitrary and unconstitutional extensions of voting deadlines in Pennsylvania and other key states.

 

5) “Initiating division through widespread violence and slander.” Now Americans are suffering the consequences of allowing Antifa and BLM, both unofficial shock troops for the Democrat Party, to thrive, riot, and spew hatred.

Bread-Land-etc-Communist Promises

6) “Conducting delusional/cunning/conniving campaign with unrealistic promises.” Now Americans are suffering the consequences of promoting their socialist programs, like the Green New Deal, funding free college tuition, and pretending to root out the illusion of “systemic racism.”

 

7) “Stirring anger and mob violence against ‘privilege’, ‘possessions’, and ‘status’.” Now Americans are suffering the consequences of accepting BLM false narrative claims that whites are racist by definition, for which we must “apologize”.

 

8) “Deceptively persuading the ‘majority’ that they were robbed of their electoral victory.” Now Americans are suffering the consequences of purposely faked polls that forecasted a Biden victory by 10 points and the takeover of the Senate by 2-4 seats.

 

9) “Provoking a civil war at the end of the elections.” Now Americans are likely to suffer the consequences of an Antifa and BLM uprising, should Trump prove voter fraud and then go on to re-election.

 

10) “The dissolution of the old State and a ‘transformation’ of the new system promised to lead to real utopian socialism.” Instead, it produced the worst and longest-ruling tyranny in history.

 

Now we are supposed to believe that the false narrative quest for socialism/communism/equality/social-justice will lead to prosperity, for which there is no successful comparator in the history of the world. But, in reality, we may suffer the consequences of the left’s false promises that will “change America”, but for the worst.

In 1995, historian Dmitry Volkogonov in his book “Lenin: Life and Legacy”, added five more descriptions of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution:

 

1) “Lenin realized: ‘The main thing was to command huge virtually unwitting masses.” Now Americans have a hugely misinformed population, because of the sustained lies that have been broadcast by the mainstream media, television, and film.

Fake news

Fake news

2) “The Party had to control a ‘national’ newspaper that could assign tasks from a central authority and serve as a tool of inducement.” Now Americans have the New York Times and the Washington Post.

 

3) Lenin argued that political work (community organizing) would stir up action to “support the unemployed movement, peasant revolts, discontent….and popular indignation.“ Now Americans have Barack Obama and his new generation of community organizers.

Social Media

Social Media

4) Lenin also claimed that the manipulation of public opinion through propaganda meant “telling less than the truth, misleading and lying.” Now Americans have a mainstream media and social media acting as ‘thought police’. They are monitoring our language and censoring our social media posts.

 

5) “To increase their newspapers’ circulation, the Bolsheviks suppressed rivals by fomenting strikes, hijacking newsprint, and aggressively distributing their publications.” Now Americans have social media megacorps that are suppressing the conservative voices of those brave individuals who still believe in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Social Media censorship

Social Media censorship

Adding up and analyzing these 15 historical Bolshevik (Russian) strategies, it is not difficult to recognize the Democrat Party’s disgraceful behavior in the 2020 elections. Add to these the Maoist (Chinese) strategies of shaming and intimidation inherent in Antifa and BLM, and it is not a stretch to identify Russian and Chinese direct and indirect influence on the Democrat Party.

 

These foreign influences are also apparent in the Democrat Party’s jettisoning of traditional American values, which include belief in G-d, Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. They could not have gotten as far as they did without the complicity of most of the traditional media and social media.

In view of these events and the unfolding revelations of massive and widespread voting fraud, did the US have a free and fair election on November 3, 2020? The answer is clearly “no”!

President Trump’s legal team thinks that Biden’s campaign stole between two and five million votes. However, they must now prove his case in court.

This roller coaster ride is far from over. So buckle up and hold on tight!

Deprogramming, Defunding, Deplatforming and Soon-to-be the Delousing of FEMA Camp Detainees Represents the New Normal

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Sunday, January 31, 2021 – 12:14. https://thecommonsenseshow.com/agenda-21-conspiracy-economics/deprogramming-defunding-deplatforming-and-soon-be-delousing-fema-camp-detainees-represents-new

It is easy to recall the works of the communist prophet, Obama, when he called for a civilian military force that “was just as strong, just well-funded” as our regular military….”

What could America have been thinking when we did not challenge this “we need to create a secret police Stasi” to do our dirty work.” In the Presidential campaign of 2008, Barak Obama was clearly telling us what was coming. Obama’s entire presidency was about establishing policies that would enable Hillary Clinton to eliminate all opposition to a complete takeover of the modern-day communists. However, something unpredictable happened on the way to the polls in 2016, a candidate that was not on script swept America off her feet.

We thought that Trump need to arrest a few Deep State leaders and America would fully return to being a Republic for democracy again. However, Trump, and now most aware Americans realize, that our government, at all levels, is the Deep State. These communists are using pyramidal schemes of control based on bribery and blackmail to do their bidding. The organization pattern looks like a multi-level marketing firm. However, these communists are not selling AMWAY, they are imposing soon-to-be genocidal communism. However, there is no Hillary Clinton to take over as was the plan in 2016, we are witnessing a communist mandate by committee. We have the face of this Bolshevik takeover, Joe Biden, who is controlled by puppeteers who are largely faceless and nameless. The next and much more brutal puppet, Kamala Harris waiting in the wings and many are certain that she will be the one who will be judge, jury and executioner.

The puppet nature of this government is so obvious. For Biden to have created 40 Executive Orders (EO) in only his first 7 days, he would have to have worked 20 hour days. Biden is not capable of working a two hour days. His ringmasters are working overtime and are quickly erasing the culture, the economy and civil liberties of the present-day America though the EO’s that Biden rubber stamps. Sadly, most people do not see the coup that has been unleashed against America. However, all of this treason and sedition is so easily identifiable for those that have eyes to see. This is background for what is already underway.

The End Game

The end game goal is to establish a KGB, a Stasi, a Gestapo, a secret police force that will crush all resistance. The establishment puppets have all admitted to this as they repeatedly threatened the American people. Kamala Harris, Michelle Obama, AOC and Nancy Pelosi have all collectively said the following:

  1. Trump’s populism will never rise again.
  2. All conservative views will be eliminated. I would suggest that Big Tech is carrying the edict to eliminate free speech.
  3. Trump supporters are going on a list.
  4. If you have opposed us in the past, we are coming after you.

In other words, the Left is using the January 6th event as an excuse to use a secret police force that is just well funded and just as strong as our military to create an “enemy of the Deep State” list and then subsequently remove the people on the list without any due process under the NDAA enemy combatant provisions.

The Left’s statements, and more, have been leveled at Trump supporters. The Trump supporters are the new Jews and this is Nazi Germany and the list is already 80 million people long.

There are a number of developments that should concern America”

  1. Indeed is advertising for detention guards but they are not hiring through the government. This would qualify as Obama’s secret army he called for and it is presumed that they will be the secret police as well as the new FEMA camp guards.
  2. Six weeks ago I reported that a man with MAGA gear and an explosive devise was arrested in Portland. He was a known domestic terrorist, yet the Department of Justice ordered the man released and the case was dropped.
  3. Last week local police in Seattle arrested a man in MAGA gear who was disturbing the peace and trying to agitate protestors. He was arrested and was determined to be a known domestic terrorist. Rather than facilitate the arrest because the man had pipe bombs in his possession, the ATF, under the auspices of the FBI, ordered him released and his name was removed from the terror watch list.
  4. A Federal LEO informed me yesterday, that a pretend Trump supporter, was arrested and he was definitely prepared to carry out domestic terror as a fake Trump supporter. The FBI stepped in and ordered the terrorist released. This terrorist  was also removed from the terrorist watch list.
  5. Two days ago, I received a call from someone who said that they worked in a “high-level” position in the SEC. They self-identified as a Democrat, but that “I did not sign up for the harassment that is coming the way of the “Game Stop Robin Hood group that caused all the leverage of the elite to be brought to bear that shut down the platforms of this group. The full force of the federal government is going to be used to harass, intimidate and make an example of the leadership. Further, this group has announced that the silver market is in their sights and this is going to hasten the harassment. This just to show one that the Stock Market is a rigged game and when the wrong people make big money at the expense of the rich, even when the activity is legal, bad things happen to those that buck the system. This self-described SEC person said these peoples lives are going to be turned upside down. Does this happen in a Republic form of Democracy? Or is this more typical of an unfolding communist dictatorship?

There are other cases, such as these cases, that I have left on the proverbial cutting room floor. However, we have enough to form some coherent conclusions:

  1. A case for persecuting 80 million Americans is being made. DHS is receiving instructions from the Biden administration that the modern-day version MIAC report is going into effect. IF one is a conservative, Christian, Constitutionalist, someone who believes that Biden won through voter fraud, Trump supporters in general, a nationalist, believes in the Second Amendment then there is cause for concern and these people should be considered to be a domestic terrorist. Basically, it is now illegal to be an American
  2. FEMA camps are being activated.
  3. A secret police force is being enlarged from the group that was originally started by Obama and I believe that Obama may indeed play the role of the commandant of the underground Gestapo who will be pulling people out of their homes at 3AM.
  4. Many has documented the gathering of “smart” guillotines and we are about ready to find out why.
  5. We are already seeing an expansion of the no-fly list, the can’t publish list on social media, the “we will ruin” your business list for supporting Trump, etc. We are now about ready to experience the “no live” list. It is apparent that this will take many forms including those who refuse the untested vaccines. Those who will not take a future loyalty oath to the Biden administration will be a development as it always is in an emerging police state which is exactly what Tulsi Gabbard called Pelosi’s “enemies within” list comment. AOC’s calling Ted Cruz an attempted murderer for challenging the election results qualifies as police state tactics. And if Congress is going to be threatened in this manner, then what won’t the Left do to you?

My recommendation is that you get all of your preps in order as food and other critical resources will be used to break the will of the masses. Stay close to God and stay out of sight until there emerges an oppositional force to what is unfolding in America.

Rav Yehuda Zev’s Legacy

Thursday, 26 January 2012

http://lazerbrody.typepad.com/lazer_beams/2012/01/rav-yehuda-zevs-legacy.html

Rav Yehuda Zev Lebowitz of saintly and blessed memory was a Kabbalist and hidden tzaddik as well as a Holocaust survivor. Little is known of him, for he lived his life far away from spotlights. Yet, his word carried tremendous weight in the Heavenly realm. What many don’t know is that he was Rav Shalom Arush’s principle spiritual guide. Rav Yehuda Zev, a holy man with the eyes of a sonogram, could not stomach anything other than absolute holiness. Many big rabbis were therefore afraid to approach him, for he could smell if they were the real deal or not. He loved Rav Shalom. He didn’t leave much in the physical world, but he bequeathed his tefillin to Rav Shalom.

Before he died 0n the 27th of Elul, 5770 (6 Sep., 2010), he told Rav Shalom three things, the first two of which have materialized:

1. Uprisings and infighting will sweep through the Arab countries;

2. Bibi will want to attack Iran, but he won’t be able to; Hashem will use other means as He did with Sadaam Hussein.

I don’t want to repeat the third thing that Rav Yehuda Zev said, for it hasn’t materialized yet. But, I urge our cherished brothers and sisters outside of Israel to start praying and planning to make Aliya, the sooner the better.

Rav Yehuda Zev Leibowitz’s Third Prediction

Tuesday, 05 June 2018

http://lazerbrody.typepad.com/lazer_beams/2018/06/rav-yehuda-zev-leibowitzs-third-prediction.html

If I were running for office or attempting to win a popularity contest, I wouldn’t be writing this post. Many of our readers outside of Israel are not going to like this. But what can a person do if he doesn’t like the weather? Bury his head in the ground? Close the curtains and say that there’s no hurricane with killer winds outside? Once a person’s house becomes flooded, the closed windows and curtains don’t help anymore. There comes a time when one cannot escape the storm outside. Yet, once the storm is predicted, he doesn’t sit with folded arms until it washes him away. He can get in the car or on a plane and move to a more amenable climate.

Don’t forget that the inclement weather, as well as the inclement political climate, all come from Hashem and for a reason.

Be patient, I’m getting to the point. But first, I must preface and ask a question: Why are we so happy on Passover Seder night? Any 7-year-old will laugh and say, “What a dumb question! That’s when Hashem took us out of slavery in Egypt!”

Is it such a dumb question when I show little 7-year-old Chaimk’e and his parents that in the three days that preceded our Exodus from Egypt in the Hebrew year of 2448 (1282 BCE), eight million Jews died, and that’s according to the conservative figure. Some say it was 10 million. Rashi explains that only 1 out of 5 Jews left Egypt in the Exodus; the other 4 died during the three days of darkness. Since a minimum of 2 million left, that means that at least 8 million perished!

Why, therefore, do we not mourn during the three days that precede Pesach, and declare them as national Holocaust Days, when 33% more Jews died than during the entire six years of the Nazi Holocaust? Not only do we not mourn, we rejoice! What’s going on?

Our sages rule that we do not mourn anyone who denies the Redemption and refuses to be a part of it, just as we don’t mourn a heretic who denies the veracity of Moses’s prophecy and the Torah (Rambam, Laws of Teshuva, 3:8, and other places). This notion is even anchored in The Code of Jewish Law (see Shulchan Oruch, Yora Deah 345:5; Mishna Berura on Orach Chaim 126:1, letter b). Moses, in the Name of Hashem, told the Children of Israel to arise, we must quickly leave Egypt. 80% didn’t listen to him. They paid a steep price but we don’t mourn for them. They had become used to Egypt and had no desire – despite what Hashem wanted – to leave Egypt. Even though they were slaves, they liked the Egyptian culture, music, pastimes and food. Moses said no, we must go to our Promised Land. Egypt is not our home.

Moses’s voice saying, “We must go to our Promised Land”, echoes through all of our history.

The periodic “Golden Ages” of our Diaspora have always been followed by calamity. The Golden Age of Jewry in the Iberian Peninsula culminated in 1492, when the horrendous Inquisition began. Jews were either killed, exiled or forcefully converted to Catholicism. The Golden Age of German and Eastern European Jewry ended in Hitler’s Holocaust.

There is only one, true Golden Age in Judaism, and that’s when our exiles return home, Moshiach comes and our Holy Temple is rebuilt.

Hashem wants to redeem His people but in the meanwhile, He won’t until they come home. The sand of that “meanwhile” keeps is emptying out from the top of that 2,000 year hourglass. When a certain date comes according to Hashem’s timeline, He won’t wait anymore and Moshiach will come whether we like it or not or whether we’re here in Israel or not.

Rav Yehuda Zev, of saintly and blessed memory, lived through the Nazi Holocaust. He witnessed the slaughter of his parents, his siblings and his fiance. He never had children because of the torture that the satanic Nazis did to his body. He did not take the word “Holocaust” lightly – he lived through it and experienced it on his own flesh and in his own heart in the most excruciatingly painful way. Though scarred, completely, inside and out, he was a tzaddik of perfect emuna and not bitter in the slightest. He knew that everything was from Hashem. Yet, with all his heart, he did everything to prevent another Holocaust. He didn’t want Moshiach to come if the price would be tragic.

A tzaddik of Rav Yehuda Zev’s caliber has 20/20 spiritual vision because nothing in this world can fool, sway or tempt him. No wonder he was so accurate in predicting the Arab Spring and Bibi’s inability to attack Iran as we wrote on our No Go post from this past Friday.

A movie clip has now become public, where Rabbi Aharon Stern shlit’a from Bnai Brak, who was Rabbi Yehuda Zev’s personal attendant, reveals the tzaddik’s third prediction and says: “Before his death, Rav Leibowitz told me that the anti-Semitism in the United States is only going to continue to grow, until it gets to the point where the Jews will be forced to flee. They must come to Israel soon; if they wait too long, they’ll be lucky to exit with the shirt on their backs…come soon, the Redemption will be here in the Land of Israel, not anywhere else.” In case anyone doubts the veracity and authenticity of the quote, at the bottom of this post is the vid in Hebrew where you can see Rav Stern saying this (see minutes 2:48-3:40).

Hashem wants to redeem us, so He wants us all here. But what about those who for any number of reasons can’t come now? What about those with joint custody on children from a previous marriage or those with an elderly parent? (Plug in your own reason…)

Rav Shalom Arush shlit’a says that even if you can’t come now, you can do 2 things:

1) Pray daily for Aliya, so that you too can come home to the Land of Israel;

2) Spread emuna far and wide, in any way you can. This will protect you in the meanwhile, because the spread of emuna is also needed to expedite Geula, the full redemption of our people, speedily and in our days, amen!

George Soros’s Negative Interactions with the Jewish World

BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 1,786, October 26, 2020

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: From a Jewish and Israeli point of view, there are two main issues to look at when analyzing the activities of American Jewish billionaire George Soros. The first are his damaging statements and actions against Jews and Israel, and the second are antisemitic attacks on Soros himself. For Jews, the problems that arise around these issues require fine tuning of their reactions to Soros’s statements and actions.

George Soros is a complex figure about whom there is much debate. Many of his activities around the world have no impact on Jewish matters, so there is no reason for Jews to enter into public disputes over whether he should be classified as a major philantropist or a king of speculators.

What does concern Jews, however, is that Soros spreads lies about antisemitism. At a rare meeting in a Jewish environment, Soros spoke before the Jewish Funders Network Conference in New York in 2003. He was asked about antisemitism in Europe and said, “There is a resurgence of antisemitism in Europe. The policies of the Bush administration and the Sharon administration contribute to that… It’s not specifically antisemitism, but it does manifest itself in antisemitism as well. I’m critical of those policies…” He blamed the “resurgence of antisemitism in Europe” on Israel and insisted that “If we change that direction, then antisemitism will also diminish.”

Nobody present at the meeting took him to task for his extreme and false blaming of the victim. Soros was ignoring the basics of Europe’s extreme antisemitism conditions, which have existed for more than 1500 years.

Soros, a typical Jewish masochist, added that he himself bears some responsibility for the new antisemitism. To bolster this point, he quoted Malaysian PM Mahathir bin Muhammad, who said, “Jews rule the world by proxy.” Soros said, “As an unintended consequence of my actions, I also contribute to that image.”

Abraham Foxman, then national director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), called Soros’s comments on antisemitism “absolutely obscene.” Foxman said blaming the victim for Israel’s and the Jewish people’s ills was bigoted and biased.

Executive Vice Chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations Malcolm Hoenlein also responded to Soros’s comments, saying:

Antisemites don’t need excuses. If the quote is accurate, it reflects a fundamental misunderstanding about antisemitism. It’s ridiculous and unacceptable to say that attacks on Jews are related to Bush or Sharon’s policies, while ignoring the real reason: a deep antipathy toward Jews in the Arab world and the occasional indifference on the part of European governments. Antisemitism in Europe reached a peak during the Barak government, during the Camp David 2 and Taba negotiations.

In short, Soros has a big mouth on issues that he understands little to nothing about.

Soros foundations fund a variety of bodies, including many Jewish and anti-Israeli organizations. NGO-Monitor has written a report on these donations, which vary greatly. According to the report, the Simon Wiesenthal Center received $450 from Soros while the anti-Israel Human Rights Watch received $100 million.

One issue about which Soros is heavily criticized is his interference in the internal affairs of many countries. The declared objective of his Open Society Foundations (OSF) is to “work to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people.” That translates into the OSF intruding into both closed and democratic societies. These intrusions include the large-scale funding of political NGOs.

The OSF grants money to political NGOs in Israel through its “Arab Regional Office (ARO)–Palestinian Citizens of Israel” department. The ARO, headed by Ammar Abu Zayyad, is one of a number of funding mechanisms for Israeli and Palestinian NGOs in the OSF network.

Soros is also involved in such activities outside Israel, for example by assisting organizations that are permeated by antisemitism. Caroline Glick of the Jerusalem Post claimed in 2016 that Black Lives Matter received “$650,000 from Soros-controlled groups over the past year.”

Republican US Senator Tom Cotton, in a speech on the Senate floor, accused the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, a new think tank funded by Soros and fellow billionaire Charles Koch, of fostering antisemitism. Cotton did not provide details.

Criticism of Soros’s activities goes far beyond what has been listed here. The OSF made more than $1 billion betting against the British pound on Black Wednesday in 1992, for example—a speculation that forced the British government to pull out of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM). Another highly problematic move by Soros was his granting of more than £400,000 to a pro-EU group to help try and reverse Brexit.

Soros is also often criticized for bankrolling the successful campaigns of radical candidates for district attorneys in the US.

There is one Soros-related issue that the Jewish world cannot ignore. Many  articles about Soros attack him because he is a Jew. The Spanish-language Radio Television Marti network, for instance, which broadcasts pro-US content in Cuba, aired a report that called Soros a “multimillionaire Jew” of “flexible morals” who was the “architect of the financial collapse of 2008.”

In Europe, the effort to demonize him has been both fueled and harnessed by nationalist leaders like PM Viktor Orban of Hungary and politicians in formerly communist countries like Macedonia, Albania, and Russia.

“Antisemitism works by inversion. It works by lying. It works by conflating,” said Ruth Wisse, an emeritus professor of Yiddish literature at Harvard University and conservative writer. “And it’s so difficult to pull some of the threads apart. This is one of the most difficult situations one can be in: when you have a Jewish anti-Jew who is attacked by antisemites.”

For Jews, the problems that arise around these attacks on Soros require fine tuning. One person who ran into trouble on this was the Israeli ambassador to Budapest, Yossi Amrani, who condemned a Hungarian poster campaign attacking Soros. He said it encouraged antisemitism.

The next day, the Israeli Foreign Ministry came out with a statement that was highly critical of Soros, but did not explicitly say its ambassador had been wrong. The statement was an exercise in verbal acrobatics.

The FM’s statement said Soros was a legitimate target for criticism and that the ambassador had meant to denounce the campaign only as it could be seen as fomenting antisemitic sentiment. It then came down hard on Soros as anti-Israel, saying, “In no way was the statement meant to delegitimize criticism of George Soros, who continuously undermines Israel’s democratically elected governments by funding organizations that defame the Jewish state and seek to deny it the right to defend itself.”

This statement characterizes Soros’s activities very well. It means that Jews will have to go on confronting his many negative influences concerning Israel, stupid remarks on antisemitism, and so on.

Codex Alimentarius – The Planned Depopulation Project

Posted on June 9, 2013 by Public Awareness Network – by lesmoore http://altnewschannel.com/codex-alimentarius/

Codex Alimentarius – The Planned Depopulation ProjectThe Codex Alimentarius (Latin for “food book”) is a collection of internationally recognized standards, codes of practice, guidelines and other recommendations relating to food production and food safety. Its texts are developed and maintained by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, a body that was established in 1963 by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The main aims of the Commission concern the health of consumers and to ensure fair practices in the international food trade. The Codex Alimentarius is recognized by the World Trade Organization as an international reference point for the resolution of disputes concerning food safety and consumer protection. Codex Alimentarius exemplifies the type of pressure brought to bear upon weaker nations by the United Nations.

It was reported that in 1996 a German delegation put forward a proposal that no herb, vitamin or mineral should be sold for preventive or therapeutic reasons, and that supplements should be reclassified as drugs. The proposal was agreed upon, but protests halted its implementation. The United Nations, Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have stated that the guidelines are intended as a safeguard against vitamin and mineral food supplements overdose. The Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) has said that the guidelines call for labeling that contains information on maximum consumption levels of vitamin and mineral food supplements. The World Health Organization has also said that the guidelines ensure that consumers receive beneficial health effects from vitamins and minerals.

president for IG Farben, Codex – A Planned Depopulation ProjectCodex Alimentarius was revived by president for IG Farben – a huge German pharmaceutical company under the Rockefeller umbrella. During the Nuremberg trials, the president of IG Farben was convicted of war crimes. After serving out his sentence he pitched his ideas on food control to the United Nations control, claiming that those who control food, control the world. The history of the United Nations is really a history of a bunch of rich men who have formulated a globalist plan to control major sectors like intelligence (CIA) banking (The World Bank), trade agreements (WTO), drugs, mental and physical health monopolies (WHO) and dozens of other agencies in an effort to control every aspect of human life planet wide.

Any country that is Codex compliant automatically wins in the World Courts; so there is a race for each country to become Codex complaint. Codex Alimentarius is a trade organization not a health organization. Nutrients are considered foods in Shays yet Codex classified vitamins and minerals as poisons. In 23 years 10 people have died from vitamins and in the same time period drugs that are not limited or regulated kill over 10,000 people a year.

Codex – A Planned Depopulation ProjectCodex has raised the limits of toxins in foods – veterinary chemicals are now allowed. Codex has allowed 7 of the 9 most dangerous Persistent Organic Pollutants that were banned by the United States and 176 other countries. With Codex these toxins and the foods that contain these (mostly pesticides) will be forced on all countries worldwide and considered a trade violation if stopped.

Codex Alimentarius And Depopulation

According to the UN, initiating Codex will result in 3 billion deaths, one billion through starvation and the other 2 billion will die through preventable diseases. Those that have the money to afford clean food and medical treatment will live longer and they will experience a far greater quality of life. The United States failed to get the mandated two thirds majority to join the World Health Organization, mandated by US law, instead it was decided by Bill Clinton.

Countries need to take back their sovereignty from the United Nations which is moving ahead with its plans for globalization and the New World Order. An order that is built on the backs of the most economically oppressed populations on the planet while a small sliver at the top of the economic pyramid rake in fortunes.

Codex – A Planned Depopulation ProjectAnother example of the effects of Codex concerns a milk additive called Prosilac (Bovine Growth Hormone). Monsanto is the manufacturer of this additive and although it has been used in diary products in the U.S. Canada would not allow the chemical in their countries food supply. The dangers of Prosilac was written but never published due to pressures from Monsanto and owner of FOX News Rupert Murdock. The FOX reporters that did attempt to air the story were bribed but refused to compromise their integrity, which lead to their termination. Codex Alimentarius has included the Bovine Growth Hormone, which has clearly been proven to be destructive to an individuals health yet it continues to be added to all milk worldwide by international law at least in those countries that are Codex compliant.

The National Nutritional Foods Association and Council from National Nutrition members include Pfizer, Merck, Monsanto, Bayer, BASF, ADM, Eastern Chemical, Glaxo. These huge transnational chemical corporations bought into the nutrient business. Whether there is any interest in food or nutrients the rights of man, freedom and liberty are what is at stake here.

Nuremberg class action lawsuit against Davos Forum over Covid-19 scandal

Reiner Fuellmich With Other German Lawyers Class Action

21st February 2021 at 12:08 pm #99454

The greatest Nuremberg of all time is on its way (NB: translated from German)
17/02/2021
By Jean-Michel Grau

Right now, a second Nuremberg tribunal that is in preparation, with a class action lawsuit being set up under the aegis of thousands of lawyers worldwide behind the American-German lawyer Reiner Fuellmich, who is prosecuting those responsible for the Covid-19 scandal manipulated by the Davos Forum.

In this respect, it is worth recalling that Reiner Fuellmich is the lawyer who succeeded in condemning the automobile giant Volkswagen in the case of the tampered catalytic converters. And it is this same lawyer who succeeded in condemning Deutsche Bank as a criminal enterprise.

According to Reiner Fuellmich, all the frauds committed by German companies are derisory compared to the damage that the Covid-19 crisis has caused and continues to cause. This Covid-19 crisis should be renamed the “Covid-19 Scandal” and all those responsible should be prosecuted for civil damages due to manipulations and falsified test protocols. Therefore, an international network of business lawyers will plead the biggest tort case of all time, the Covid-19 fraud scandal, which has meanwhile turned into the biggest crime against humanity ever committed.

A Covid-19 commission of enquiry has been set up on the initiative of a group of German lawyers with the aim of bringing an international class action lawsuit using Anglo-Saxon law. Here is the summarized translation of the last communication of Dr. Fuellmich of 15/02/2021

“The hearings of around 100 internationally renowned scientists, doctors, economists and lawyers, which have been conducted by the Berlin Commission of Inquiry into the Covid-19 affair since 10.07.2020, have in the meantime shown with a probability close to certainty that the Covid- 19 scandal was at no time a health issue. Rather, it was about solidifying the illegitimate power (illegitimate because it was obtained by criminal methods) of the corrupt “Davos clique” by transferring the wealth of the people to the members of the Davos clique, destroying, among other things, small and medium-sized enterprises in particular. Platforms such as Amazon, Google, Uber, etc. could thus appropriate their market share and wealth.”

Status of the Covid-19 Committee investigation

a. Covid-19 as a diversionary tactic by corporate and political “elites” in order to shift market share and wealth from small and medium enterprises to global platforms such as Amazon, Google, Uber, etc.

b. Contribution of the Audiovisual Tax to the reconstruction of a new media landscape that offers truly independent information

c. Making regional agricultural structures secure

d. Making a secure regional currency to prevent a new currency from coming “from above” to be allocated in the event of good behaviour.

e. Psychological considerations of the situation: how did it come about?
Actions for annulment of the approval of a vaccination, filed against the European Commission, trial in New York of the status of PCR tests, German trials, Canadian trials, Australian trials, Austrian trials, trials at the International Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights.

“We have seen what has been confirmed time and time again: the degree of danger posed by the virus is about the same as that of seasonal flu, regardless of whether it is a new virus (wholly or partially manufactured) or whether we are simply dealing with a flu renamed “Covid-19 pandemic”. In the meantime, Drosten’s PCR tests cannot even tell us anything about contagious infections. To make matters worse, the health and economic damage caused by anti-covid measures has been so devastating that we have to speak of a level of destruction that is historically unique. »

“The fact that health has never been an issue is particularly obvious, except that injections of genetically experimental substances disguised as “vaccinations” are now cauing serious damage, including fatal consequences, on a mass scale. The world population has been used as guinea pigs for these experimental gene injections both gradually and extremely rapidly. In order to plunge the population into panic, dangerous and harmful containment measures (even according to the WHO) of compulsory, unnecessary and dangerous mask-wearing and social distancing, unnecessary and counterproductive, were introduced. The population was thus “ready” for the injections.”

“In the meantime, more and more people, not just lawyers – and rightly so – are demanding, in addition to an immediate end to these murderous measures, a judicial review by a truly independent international tribunal on the model of the Nuremberg trials. An example of such a demand and a moving excerpt from a speech by the English doctor Dr. Vernon Coleman can be found at the following link:(https://youtu.be/T3DNV7v5i74)

In addition, an interview with a whistleblower at a Berlin nursing home shows that out of 31 people vaccinated there, some of them by force, in the presence of Bundeswehr soldiers, and who tested negative before the vaccination, 8 have now died and 11 are subject to serious side effects.” (2020news.de/whistleblower-aus-berliner-altenheim-das-schreckliche-sterben-nach-der-impfung/)
Extraordinary meeting of the Berlin Covid Committee Wednesday 17/02/2021

“In this context, an extraordinary meeting of the Berlin Covid Committee will take place on Wednesday 17.02.2021, live and with many guests participating via Zoom.
From 14:00 onwards, the state of play will be summarised. In addition, it will be discussed how the contributions from the Audiovisual Licence Fee Tax can be kept and used for the reconstruction of a new media landscape that truly serves freedom of expression, and how the contributions already paid for the senseless propaganda of the last 11 months can be recovered through a formal notice.

There will be contributions and discussions on how the food supply can be secured, in particular by strengthening regional agriculture; but also by creating regional currencies, if necessary with the return of the EU to the EEC, on how to ensure that the policy of the “Davos clique”, based on printing money out of nothing, can be stopped and a return to stable currencies can be achieved.

Above all, experts will explain how it could happen that we find ourselves in this blackmail situation unimaginable even a year ago.

In the second part of the session, starting at 7 p.m., world-renowned and high-level personalities will comment on the state of current international legal disputes, including the various collective actions, as summarised above. But it will also be discussed how the main perpetrators, in particular political perpetrators, of the crimes against humanity committed here can and must be held accountable under civil and criminal law in the framework of a new International Court of Justice to be established in accordance with the guidelines of the Nuremberg trials with international distribution.”

The link to the special session of the Covid Committee announced here will be available on 17.02.2021 via the Committee’s website (corona-ausschuss.de).
Commentary :

To fully understand what is at stake with this new Nuremberg tribunal to judge the biggest tort case of all time, it is by pulling the thread of Dr. Drosten’s lie for falsifying the PCR testing protocol on behalf of the Davos clique, that everything will come to pass: the sponsors of the financial oligarchy, Klaus Schwab, the great architect of this gigantic hostage-taking, the politicians at the head of the EU, the armed arm of the execution of Drosten’s and WHO directives that led all Western governments yesterday to take the devastating decisions of containment, curfews, compulsory mask-wearing and social distancing, and today of lethal vaccines for the oldest among us.

“It is these truths that will bring down the masks of those responsible for the crimes committed. To the politicians who have had faith in these corrupt figures,” says Dr. Fuellmich, “the facts presented here are the lifeline that will help them to set the record straight and begin the much- needed scientific debate to avoid going down with these criminal charlatans.

Secondly, in the light of this latest communication by Dr Fuellmich, two proposals from the extraordinary meeting of the Covid Committee in Berlin are of particular interest:

Firstly, the way in which the food supply can be secured, which seems somewhat surreal given the current situation. According to Klaus Schwab’s planning for the Davos Forum, this is not the case. He has predicted a break in the food chain from the end of the second half of 2021 (nouveau-monde.ca/fr/la-quatrieme-phase-de-schwab/).

Secondly, the creation of regional currencies. There, it is clear that the Covid Committee of Berlin already anticipates the world stock market crash which is coming and which the financial oligarchy of the Davos Forum intends to take advantage of to set up the European digital currency in the expectation of a world currency to create a Chinese-style social credit on which the middle class of all the peoples ruined by the closure of their businesses, small and medium-sized industries and enterprises, cultural and tourist industries, sports facilities, etc. will become dependent.

These two aspects alone of the hostage-taking 2.0 of which the Western world has been a victim for almost a year should logically be sufficiently motivating to make us understand definitively that we are faced with a “populicide” that only asks to crush us if we remain inert, arms dangling without doing anything.

This is why each of us should do everything we can now to ensure that this international legal coalition can become operational as soon as possible. To this end, all those of us who wish to join the collective action of French lawyers to participate in this reconquest of our freedoms should already get in touch with the collective action by 21 February (francesoir.fr/opinions-entretiens/interview-me-virginie-de-araujo-recchia-avocate-au-barreau- de- paris). Our survival is at this price as well as the future of our children.

Germany’s Merkel Slams Twitter for Trump Ban

Posted by Monday, January 11, 2021 at 2:30pm

Merkel’s Spokesman: “…chancellor considers it problematic that the accounts of the U.S. president have now been permanently blocked.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel criticized Twitter for banning President Donald Trump.

 

The social media giant’s decision on Friday to permanently remove the U.S. president from the platform was “problematic,” Chancellor Merkel’s spokesman, Steffen Seibert, told reporters on Monday.

The decision to silence a sitting head of a state on the web should only be taken by the country’s elected representative and not by “the management of social media platforms,” Seibert said.

“This fundamental right can be intervened in, but according to the law and within the framework defined by legislators — not according to a decision by the management of social media platforms,” Seibert said. “Seen from this angle, the chancellor considers it problematic that the accounts of the U.S. president have now been permanently blocked.”

Politico covered the criticism of Twitter’s decision by Germany’s Merkel and other European leaders:

Twitter’s decision to suspend of U.S. President Donald Trump’s account is pushing European leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, to stress the need to regulate social media companies.

On Monday, a spokesman for Merkel said Twitter’s Trump ban was “problematic.”

“The fundamental right [of freedom of expression] can be interfered with, but along the lines of the law and within the framework defined by the lawmakers. Not according to the decision of the management of social media platforms,” government spokesperson Steffen Seibert said.

Still, “The German government is convinced that social network operators bear a very high level of responsibility … for ensuring that political communication is not poisoned by hatred, by lies, by incitement to violence,” Seibert added.

French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire, while condemning Trump’s “lies,” also expressed his disagreement with Twitter’s ability to unilaterally decide to remove the American president from the platform. “What shocks me is that Twitter is the one to close his account. The regulation of the digital world cannot be done by the digital oligarchy,” Le Maire said on France Inter Monday morning.

Le Maire oversees the ministry for digital affairs, whose junior minister Cédric O also raised questions over the weekend. “The regulation of public discourse by the main social media companies with regards only to their Terms and Conditions … seems, to say the least, a little short from a democratic point of view,” O tweeted on Saturday.

The comment comes days after Merkel blamed Trump for the Capitol Hill riots.

“I regret very much that President Trump not acknowledged his defeat since November and also again not yesterday. Doubts about the election outcome were stirred and created the atmosphere that made the events of last night possible.” she said on Thursday.

In the aftermath of the Capitol events, Merkel’s government has announced a new law to clamp down on “hate speech” on social media.

According to the proposed legislation, social media giants like Facebook and Twitter will hand over user data to German Federal Police based solely on the complaint. The police do not have to provide evidence of actual wrongdoing, the German media reported over the weekend.

While Merkel’s tone turned conciliatory, the German state media remain hostile to President Trump in its coverage. On Monday, Germany’s state-run Deutsche Welle ran an editorial titled “Stop Trump Permanently” in which the state broadcaster’s U.S. correspondent Ines Pohl demanded that President Trump “must be prevented from running for office ever again.”

Some officials and media in Australia also blasted Twitter’s actions.

“Donald Trump’s Twitter ban sparks political debate in Australia over censorship concerns,” the Australian Public broadcaster SBS reported Monday.

“I’m not in favour of censorship – I think if people don’t like what they see on Twitter – well don’t go onto that social media platform,” Australia’s Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack said.

Vonnegut’s Dark Vision Arrived 60 Years Early…

by Tyler Durden 02November2020 – 22:00  https://www.zerohedge.com/political/vonneguts-dark-vision-arrived-60-years-early

Authored by Jim Quinn via The Burning Platform blog,

“THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren’t only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.” – Harrison Bergeron – Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut’s short story – Harrison Bergeron – was written in 1961, and in Vonnegut’s darkly satirical style, portrayed America in 2081 as an disgracefully dystopian nightmare. Little did Vonnegut know what he considered outrageous and 120 years in the future, would be far closer to our current dystopian reality just 60 years later. The story was brought to my attention by my wife a week ago when we were talking about the absurdity of masks, their uselessness in stopping viruses, how they are nothing more than a means to control the population, being used to spread fear, and as a dehumanizing technique.

Harrison Bergeron

She remembered the name Diana Moon Glampers from reading the story in high school. Never has a story that takes 15 minutes to read, captured the evilness and depravity of a government demanding “equality” in a more succinct and brutal manner. Its parallels with our current government enforced lockdown, mandatory muzzles, mainstream media propaganda, and social media censorship is uncannily accurate.

The premise of Vonnegut’s story is George and Hazel Bergeron sitting on their couch watching TV, sometime after their fourteen-year old son Harrison had been taken away by the government and jailed for the crime of being strong, good looking, intelligent, and defiant against their ridiculous regulations and dictates. The mediocre minds of those in charge had taken the American Declaration of Independence’s phrase – “All men are created equal” to a ludicrous extreme.

Their warped interpretation of our founding document failed to acknowledge the term “independence”, and the unalienable rights of all men to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We are created equal in the eyes of God, but we have free choice to use our abilities to succeed or fail in life. Some people use their intellectual abilities to succeed, others use their athletic strength, and others their physical appearance and talents. The government should not dictate who should succeed or fail.

The totalitarian government in Vonnegut’s 2081 America coerces its citizens into being equal to one another in appearance, behavior, and achievements. To attain physical and intellectual equality among all Americans, the government torments its citizens through mandatory handicapping, enforced by the Handicapper General – Diana Moon Glampers.

Don't tread on me with Covid-19 mask

The beautiful must wear repugnant masks or disfigure themselves, the intelligent must listen to piercing noises that impede their ability to think, and the elegant and strong must wear weights around their necks. Removal of their government mandated handicaps results in huge fines and imprisonment. Vonnegut takes the “achievement” of total equality to its most absurd outcomes. The foolishness of handicapping the best and brightest citizens to achieve total equality is unnatural and wrong. Punishing the talented by forcing them to be unexceptional and compliant, results in a society of mediocrity and mendaciousness.

Harrison Bergeron is seven feet tall, three hundred pounds, athletic, graceful, handsome, intelligent and defiant. He is the embodiment of the alpha American male, making him a dangerous threat to a government dependent upon keeping its populace fearful, sedated, cowed, average and unmotivated to defy their dictates. The handicaps placed on Harrison were heavier than anyone had ever required.

“Instead of a little ear radio for a mental handicap, he wore a tremendous pair of earphones, and spectacles with thick wavy lenses. The spectacles were intended to make him not only half blind, but to give him whanging headaches besides. Scrap metal was hung all over him. Ordinarily, there was a certain symmetry, a military neatness to the handicaps issued to strong people, but Harrison looked like a walking junkyard. And to offset his good looks, the H-G men required that he wear at all times a red rubber ball for a nose, keep his eyebrows shaved off, and cover his even white teeth with black caps at snaggle-tooth random.” – Harrison Bergeron – Kurt Vonnegut

Despite these hinderances, he escapes from his jail cell, bursts into the studio where average ballet dancers, masked to hide their beauty, and weighed down by bags of birdshot, are joylessly giving an unexceptional performance in front of a nationwide audience of unthinking automatons, obediently following the orders of their overseers. The warning announcement from the government before he arrived at the studio said he was plotting to overthrow the government and should be considered extremely dangerous.

In this world of the “future”, anyone not toeing the government line and exercising their right to think differently or question the government narrative is considered a traitor and dangerous. Individuality is a crime. Thinking for yourself is a crime. Enjoying life is a crime. Not obeying masking rules is a crime. Does this remind you of anything in present day America? Harrison is brave and defiant, while the majority are cowardly and passive.

Harrison rips off his steel restraints and handicaps, revealing his physical strength and magnificence, reminding TV viewers that underneath their own restraints and handicaps, they too are individuals, capable of excelling and living life fully. He declares himself emperor and selects a ballerina as his empress.

The other dancers and musicians removed their handicaps and began to play and dance up to their God given abilities. This scene offered the potential for a revolution. As Harrison and his empress danced majestically, you could visualize the mental and physical binds breaking across the country. A spirit of excellence and independence could sweep across the land and the people could break free of their government mandated trusses.

Ballerina-A spirit of excellence

But it was not to be. Authoritarian governments, once they attain power and control, will not relinquish it without a fight. They will use violent means to keep the sheep docile and obedient.

“It was then that Diana Moon Glampers, the Handicapper General, came into the studio with a double-barreled ten-gauge shotgun. She fired twice, and the Emperor and the Empress were dead before they hit the floor. Diana Moon Glampers loaded the gun again. She aimed it at the musicians and told them they had ten seconds to get their handicaps back on.” – Harrison Bergeron – Kurt Vonnegut

Diana Moon Glampers, Then and Now

The governments of the future and the present cannot allow displays of individuality and defiance of authority, or they lose their power, control and wealth. Therefore, they will resort to extreme acts of violence to enforce their will upon their subjects. Governments want passive, unthinking, obedient serfs, who do as they are told and believe whatever narrative they are peddled.

In Vonnegut’s dystopian future the government achieved this mental state of distraction through externally applied handicaps, but in reality, they have been able to achieve this outcome through government school indoctrination centers, drugs to induce tranquility, and technology to mesmerize, distract, and propagandize an easily swayed populace.

Vonnegut was certainly warning his readers about the evils of equality as sold by the socialists/communists during the 1950s. Based on what have seen since his warning and the current drift of the country towards socialist authoritarian enforced equality – taking from the successful and giving to the failures – we have failed to heed the moral of his cautionary tale. We’ve chosen comforting lies over unpleasant truths.

People in line for Lies or Truth

Vonnegut’s two main themes were the dangers of government enforced total equality and the power of television/technology to control and manipulate our thoughts and feelings. Those with average intelligence required nothing more than to be entertained by the TV, but those with above average intelligence or abilities either willingly dumbed themselves down or hid their special attributes, to avoid the harsh handicaps inflicted by the government.

Fear of severe punishment intimidated the talented into docile submission. The quest for equality was achieved. The result was a nation of stupid, slow dullards, incapable of critical thought or achievement. Vonnegut’s question for his audience was, are we willing to sacrifice our liberty and freedom in order to achieve a government mandated and enforced level of warped equality?

Anyone with an iota of awareness and critical thinking ability can see the parallels with our current path of compulsory equality, enforced through government regulations, left wing academics, social media shaming, corporate virtue signaling, and socialist politicians. Rather than physically handicapping those with more talent and drive, they attempt to equalize for the inept and lazy by lowering the bar and heaping financial incentives upon the “disadvantaged”.

The entire BLM scam being jammed down the throats of white Americans is based on the falsehood of systemic racism and the perceived need to equal the playing field for blacks by giving them the ball on the five-yard line. We have universities ignoring SAT scores to allow minorities slots earned by Asians and whites. The entire educational system has been dumbed down to make the intellectually challenged (aka dummies) feel like they are equal to those who outperform and outwork them. Being educated at a university by academics who have never worked a day in their lives doesn’t make you intelligent, as we can plainly see by the level of ignorance in this country.

worthless degree

The narrative of victimhood has been flogged by the deceitful mainstream media, pandering politicians, and imparted by left wing professors to their oblivious indoctrinated students. This narrative is used to guilt those who worked for their success into volunteering their positions and supporting undeserved remunerations.

The trillions spent to alleviate the perceived disadvantages of blacks since LBJ’s Great Society implementation have done nothing but enslave millions in the chains of a welfare mentality and it’s never enough. Equality won’t be achieved until trillions of reparation bribes are paid and their criminal element are rewarded for their looting and rioting efforts in cities across the land.

The victim card is used by feminists for “equal pay”, even though the statistics they use are fake. The LGBQT movement demands special rights, rather than equal rights. Sports Illustrated now puts obese chicks and men pretending to be women in their swimsuit issue in order to be politically correct and woke. Those of a libertarian bent don’t care how others choose to live their lives, but trying to force abnormality upon the community through laws and regulations is a bridge too far. Bringing others down to further your agenda is not what this country is about. And the pushback is now commencing.

The most relevant parallel between Vonnegut’s dystopian future and 2020 has been the use of fear by the government, their media mouthpieces, and handsomely paid “experts” to herd the population into lockdown corrals, while forcing mandatory masking (muzzling) under threat of fines and imprisonment. This has been done to “save us” from a flu that will not kill 99.7% of us and is only a risk to the very old and infirm.

Even though the CDC, New England Journal of Medicine and numerous other medical authorities detailed the ineffectiveness of masks in combating viruses prior to this engineered pandemic, the authorities demand compliance and submission to mask mandates, even though the virus continues to spread despite compulsory masking around the world – except in Sweden.

In Vonnegut’s dark vision of the future, the handsome and beautiful are masked to make the ugly and average feel good about themselves. The intelligent and thoughtful are hampered by screeching sounds so they are dumbed down to the level of compliant dullards. The fear of reprisal and punishment keeps the population terrified and easy to manipulate and manage.

muzzle featured

Vonnegut’s totalitarian government behemoth sought to dehumanize its subjects, suck the joy from their lives, and create a nation of submissive serfs, unwilling to revolt against their masters. Our power-crazed autocrats, running the show, are jubilant at the success of their demonic experiment in convincing the vast swath of humanity to love their servitude, scurrying around like masked mice, avoiding each other as if there was a real plague engulfing the world.

The un-Constitutional lockdowns are a test drive for further authoritarian measures designed to make our lives joyless, bleak and controlled by a master class of oligarchs and their henchmen enforcers. Their goal is to turn us against each other, creating a nation of snitches and equally miserable slaves for the state. They haven’t resorted to shotgun blasts on national TV, but physically attacking the non-compliant has begun.

COVID-19 Stazi Police

Vonnegut’s entire story takes place with George and Hazel Bergeron planted on their couch watching TV. Vonnegut clearly believed the relatively new invention of television had become a hugely important part of our daily lives, with the potential capacity to be used by the government to sedate, rule and terrorize the population into doing what they were told. As Bernays noted almost 100 years ago, the manipulation of the habits and opinions of the masses through unseen propaganda techniques allow the invisible government to manipulate and control the minds of its citizens.

Television made this “necessary” molding of minds to the desires of the government dramatically easier. Vonnegut saw television as mainly a sedative for the masses, keeping them docile and distracted from thinking. It was also a means of coercion, as the news bulletin showed a photograph of Harrison with his good looks disfigured and strength dissipated as a visual example to viewers of what will happen to them if they do not stifle their own abilities and obey their overlords. The live executions on TV were used as a warning to everyone about the fate of revolutionaries.

Vonnegut had no idea how the power of television would be taken to the nth power with the onset of the internet, “smart” phones, and social media. The geniuses and techno-geeks assured us technology would enhance freedom and open the world to new horizons and discoveries. All the knowledge ever learned would be at the fingertips of everyone on the planet. A glorious future awaited. Sadly, for humanity, the glorious future never arrived. As Huxley predicted, technological progress has just provided a more efficient means of going backwards. Technology is used as a never-ending distraction for those with below average intelligence.

Couple watching TV

The unadulterated use of propaganda and fear has never been more evident than during this great reset pandemic scheme. The brightly colored Covid-19 case counters at the bottom of every MSM news channel screen are designed to scare the non-thinking math challenged noobs into believing mass death will sweep the nation unless they lockdown and mask-up. The government uses influencers (Hollywood idiots and sports heroes who can’t spell hero) and mass media advertising campaigns to make the plebs believe masks work and lockdowns will stop the virus. The level of willful ignorance is beyond comprehension, but a true credit to the propaganda powers of the state.

The truth is out there, but the billionaire Silicon Valley censorship police are doing their part as the enforcement arm of the invisible government overseers, to obscure, delete, and suppress any opinions not adhering to the approved Party narrative. There are thousands of medical professionals who know HCQ + zinc stops this virus dead in its tracks, but acknowledging that truth would not help enrich Gates, Fauci and the drug company complex. Therefore, it is ridiculed, scorned and banned from use by politicians and media pundits on the take. The current fear mongering has reached a new level this week as their final push to rid themselves of Trump enters the home stretch.

Social Media: Mind Control

The talking heads screech about new all-time highs in cases and hyper-ventilate about the coming wave of death unless we elect Biden, lockdown and enforce mandatory masking. What they do not tell you is testing reached an all-time high of 1.4 million yesterday, so with the same positivity rate (with at least 50% false positives), cases will always go up. The vast majority of those testing positive have no symptoms, meaning they aren’t sick. The only thing that should matter is deaths per case. How many cases lead to a death?

At the peak in April there were 2,113 deaths per day when cases were 30,000. That was a death rate of 7%. Two months ago, there were 922 deaths per day when cases were 41,000. That was a death rate of 2.3%. Today we have 809 deaths per day, with cases at 79,000 – a death rate of 1%. Have you heard an MSM propagandist joyously declare the death rate is now down 86% from its peak and down 57% in the last two months? That doesn’t fit the narrative of fear needed to keep you controlled, cowed and compliant.

Vonnegut was right, but he was far too optimistic on the timing. The totalitarians are on the warpath. They already have control over most governments and intend a great worldwide reset to implement their socialist/communist agenda of equality for all – except themselves. They want more wealth, more control, and more power. As Orwell predicted, they seek power for its own sake. They don’t care about our lives, liberties, or pursuit of happiness. They just want dumbed down obedient workers to do the menial jobs and passively accept their fate until death.

“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?” – 1984 – George Orwell

US-Capital-Dark-Clouds

Of course, the antidote to this new world order is written within our founding document. The government should derive its powers from the consent of the governed. Those in charge, whether elected or unelected, have destroyed our rights, freedom and liberty. Therefore, it is our right to abolish the existing form of government and institute a new government under our original founding principles. Those in control will not relinquish their power without violent conflict. That is how Fourth Turnings reach a climax. I have a feeling the fight will begin in earnest on November 4. Brace yourself and prepare to fight for the future of our country.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” – Declaration of Independence – 1776

Gulags are already forming under the Biden regime, with cruel and unusual treatment of protestors who have opposing political views

April 12, 2021 by:
https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-04-12-gulags-forming-under-the-biden-regime.html
Thought-Mind-Prison-Jail-Concept

(Natural News) After state election laws and ballot adjudication procedures were violated in the 2020 election; after Biden vote hauls were brought in post-election; after statistical anomalies and vote switching was found; and after the U.S. courts and the Congress refused to hear widespread evidence of election fraud and malfeasance; the Biden regime took control over the federal government. The Biden regime began its authoritarian reign with a small, phony celebration, protected by a large standing army and sprawling fences of razor. Before assuming power, the Biden regime labeled their political opposition “domestic terrorists” and “insurrectionists” even though an FBI review of the Capitol protest on January 6, 2021 found no evidence that the protestors of election fraud were armed. Moreover, security protocols were relaxed. Even more, property damage was instigated primarily by left-wing agitators who were admittedly present that day to frame Trump supporters.

DC prisons are becoming modern day gulags that brutalize people based on political beliefs

In the wake of the Capitol protest on January 6, 2021, D.C quickly transformed into a police state. The National Guard was called in to be a standing army indefinitely. Each National Guard member was ideologically probed and vetted to ensure that they agreed with the Biden regime and did not support any effort to investigate election fraud. Using the tactics of former dictators, the FBI feverishly began to investigate every person who occupied Capitol grounds on January 6th. Soon, one of America’s most left-wing cities would give birth to the first gulags of the Biden regime.

The D.C. jail that now holds several Capitol protestors is stewing with reports of brutality and psychological abuse of the protestors, among other forms of cruel and unusual punishment. The D.C. jail is slowly being converted into a modern-day gulag. The word “Gulag” is an acronym for Glavnoe Upravlenie Lagerei, or Main Camp Administration. The term gulag was first coined in Stalin’s Russia from 1920 to the early 1950s, and was used to imprison roughly 18 million people. These prisons included hundreds of labor camps that held anywhere from 2,000 to 10,000 people each. Political dissidents were brutalized in the camps and required to work up to fourteen hours a day. The glaring similarity between today’s D.C. prisons and Stalin’s gulags is the discriminatory abuse of inmates over political differences and the cruel, inhumane treatment.

Capitol protestors are being targeted, savagely beaten, and mentally tortured by left-wing correctional officers

Correctional officers in the D.C prison are targeting the Capitol protestors and beating them up at will. Capitol protestors continue to appeal to D.C judges that they are being held in cells with no human contact for 23 hours a day. One inmate, Ronald Sandlin, spoke about the brutality in court. Sandlin says Capitol protestors are being singled out, threatened, verbally harassed, and beaten by the guards.

“Myself and others involved in the Jan. 6 incident are scared for their lives, not from each other but from correctional officers,” Sandlin said during a bail hearing conducted by video before U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich. “I don’t understand how this is remotely acceptable,” he added, saying he was being subjected to “mental torture.”

Another Capitol protestor, Ryan Samsel, said he was “severely beaten by correctional officers” and suffers from a skull fracture and a detached retina that has left him blind in one eye. When the defendants speak out, they are often denied bail and beaten over and over again by correctional officers. This comes at a time when left-wing district attorneys and judges are letting left-wing rioters out of jail because of “covid” and “police brutality.”

For instance, the Iowa Capitol building was recently invaded and occupied by left-wing protestors. There is no mention of insurrection in the media and no charges of domestic terrorism. The left-wing attacks on a federal courthouse in Portland Oregon are not being called out as domestic terror, either. The arsonists and looters are not being charged, and they are the ones committing actual violence toward people and property! It is now clear that the law is being applied surreptitiously in a selective and discriminatory manner, punishing people for their political beliefs. The American prison system is now politically-motivated and is slowly becoming a gulag to further the anti-human rights agenda of the Biden regime.

If the Democrats Have Not Done Enough to Steal the Election, Here Are 21 Things That They Plan To Do To You

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Tuesday, November 3, 2020 https://thecommonsenseshow.com/education-health-martial-law/if-democrats-have-not-done-enough-steal-election-here-are-21-things-they-plan-do-you

antifa-this-is-war

An AOL-Time Warner poll indicates that the Left is claiming a 10 point lead over Trump. Not since Herbert Hoover lost to FDR in 1932 have we seen this type of separation. The Left clearly feels that they have done enough cheating to steal the election by a large margin. After all, they did mail out over 80 million ballots. This is why there are election records from early voting. They are ballots received from dead dogs, Democratic Party aborted fetuses, Arkancided Hillary victims, dementia patients from nursing homes, ghosts from Halloween, Democrats who received multiple ballots. In 331 county jurisdictions, as reported by Judicial Watch, there are more registered voters than there are people!

These kinds of articles are very difficult to write because there are so many moving parts.  I have gathered facts that I have been told by so-called “insider sources” about what is coming.  Some of the expected Deep State insurrection has been rehearsed by local, state and federal law enforcement. Much of what follows comes from these types of sources.

I want to emphasize that there are rehearsals that are currently being practiced by the traitors and their in-country foreign assets. However, most of what is anticipated in this properly labeled, Bolshevik Revolution, is assumed by the modus operandi of the embedded foreign assets in our country and what has constituted past practice.

It is looking more and more that the Democrats and their bullpen of corrupt judges have done enough to win the election going away. However, if there is indeed a silent Trump majority and Trump, by some miracle does win the election, Here are 21 things that you can expect to happen:

 

If It Is Anticipated That Trump Will Win On November 3, 2020, These Are the Anticipated Deep State Actions

Unbridled violence will be unleashed if Trump is declared the winner on election day. If the traitors steal the election, the violent response will be slower to come to fruition. There are certain parts of the military that will react.  Let’s break down what I have learned.

Traitor’s Strategies

One of the questions that I frequently ask many of media guests is “what do you think that the extremists will do to regain power over government?”  The most common answer I received is that “there is nothing that they will not do”.

  1. Here is a list of tactics that are expected on the part of the Democratic Party and their hired guns. Remember the objective is to start a civil war. This group kills after-birth babies, therefore, there is nothing they will not do.
  2. If the Democrats/Deep State determine that the Democrats cannot win. Extreme violence will be enacted in a nation-wide coordinated manner. I have been predicting this for 3 years. We will be living in 1992 Bosnia and 2014 Ukraine. There will be snipers on the roof. Random cars and people at events will be attacked with deadly precision. Randomized IED’s will be unleashed. Police in Aurora, CO. and Austin, TX., have caught Antifa rehearsing sniping events on top of tall buildings.
    MS-13 has been quiet but their day is coming. I have often thought about what would have happened to the four DC officers who rescued Rand Paul and his wife if MS-13 was active. Answer, they all would have been killed and for dramatic effect, I believe their trademark of machete-induced-deaths would have been employed. Alt media, opposition media, loyalist military officers, key politicians at all levels of government, most if not all Constitutional Sheriffs, conservative police chiefs, key conservative educators will be assassinated. Many of these lists have been intercepted and the targets are known. There are too many people to protect.  As I stated that a TET Offensives is coming. However, the government knows this and Continuity of Government has been enacted as key people will be isolated. In fact, and over 5 months ago, I reported that the military heads of Northcom and Southcom are basically quarantined.
  3. A series of mini-911 events are planned. They are being rehearsed in such places as the Portland Federal Building.
  4. Cartels will militarily move on small town police forces and execute all police officers that they can get their hands on. In print, 5 years ago I printed just such a warning from a high ranking and anonymous Texas Ranger. He concluded that we no defense against such an event.
  5. The security at nuclear power plants will be tested.
  6. Random and murderous home invasions will take place so the fight is carried to middle class and even rural America.
  7. The LA assassination of the two police officers was likely a beta test. No police officer on the street will be safe.
  8. In anticipated Democratic loss, and with the help of the CHICOMS, the gird will be brought down in a cyber attack, not an EMP.
  9. It is a strong belief in some federal agencies that the CHICOMs will supply terrorists with a tactical nuclear weapon for detonation in Washington DC. It is thought that this is how they will try to assassinate Trump. This will move the government operations to Denver which has been rehearsed several times going back to Operation Mountain Guardian in 2011.
  10. Retail and food delivery will stop. The Bolsheviks (ie the cartels, Antifa, BLM) will ambush trucks and the resulting fear will cause trucking to come to a complete standstill. A massive famine will come across America.
  11. No Republican, including Trump will be safe.
  12. As expected,  Christian churches will be attacked.
  13. Public schools, particularly elementary schools will be the site of mass murder. The younger the children the greater the emotional impact on the American people.
  14. Military personnel will be attacked when they come and go from a base.
  15. Oil fields will be burned in the same manner that has happened in three western states.
  16. I have been told that hospitals will be attacked and fire-bombed. I was told that the Chinese requested this move be made that will help prevent the medical treatment when the Red Dawn invasion occurs.
  17. The goal of these insurgents is start  to killing America.
  18. There are some in ARSOF that believe that Joe Biden will withdraw from the race prior to the coming violence. Kamala Harris and Pelosi will be the ticket. I have even been told that plans have been made by these traitors to isolate Harris as she directs an emerging civil war against the government. The Obama-appointed officers will spearhead the opposition. They will be headquartered Los Angeles. Some of these experts expect that this is when the UN and the embedded CHICOMS will be unleashed as soon as it is determined that America has been weakened by the terrorist onslaught.
  19. The CHICOMS are supplying BLM and Antifa with material support. Assault weapons are common and we can expect sniper stations in major Democratic run cities.
  20. If the blue-helmeted CHICOM soldiers representing the UN take to American streets, the goal will be to inflict maximum casualties. There will be no relocations and no prisoners will be taken.
  21. The purpose of the fires in California is now becoming clear. Yes, Newsom’s broke California needs federal disaster money from the deliberately set fires. However, the real purpose is has military implications. The communications centers are being threatened by the fires and if they go, local police department and sheriff’s offices will be trapped with no communications. This will assist an invading force and embedded terrorists to gain a foothold. California will the beachhead. It may not be the only one, but it will become the most important.
    I have been given 165 tips about what is expected by experts. I am publishing what I believe will be the top 21.

The polls can say what they want. However, based on crowd size at events, the Democrats do not stand a chance. I cannot for certain, but I believe it is likely that the civil war will commence in mid to late October. Additionally, there opposing two space forces. One is known and one is unknown and I expect the conflict to begin in space.

My advice is to get prepped as we live in unpredictable times. Food, water, guns, ammo, gold, silver, natural medicine, tools and allies. Stay in on election night and if you can get out of the city, do so.

Mounting Reports of a Simultaneous Coming Civil War and World War III Will Be Unleashed With An Unfavorable Election Result for Harris/Biden

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Sunday, October 25, 2020 – 15:25 https://thecommonsenseshow.com/activism-agenda-21-conspiracy/mounting-reports-simultaneous-coming-civil-war-and-world-war-iii-will-be-unleashed-unfavorable
Nobody wants to believe it, but more and more evidence keeps surfacing that our worst fears are about to be realized.

It is clear that key parts of Western Canada are being handed off to the CHICOMS. I maintain that Trudeau has struck a military deal with the CHICOMS. Why? With true north moving, melting ice caps has made Canada the unquestionable dominant power in freshwater supplies. With water levels in many world metropolitan areas dropping to 500 feet, freshwater will become a valuable commodity. Canada will become the 1980’s version of the Saudi Arabia, only the product will not be oil, it will be water. However, Canada does not have the military reserve to protect it supplies and transport going forward.

Trudeau should have reached out to the United States for this reason. But why didn’t they? Read the Deagel Report which says that 89% of Americans will be dead in just over four years. The Chinese obviously convinced Trudeau that China will be the only country left standing that can protect their water resources. This makes sense because America has enjoyed a tremendous relationship with Canada as the border represents the largest undefended border in the world.

I have also written about how China is initiating their “belt and road” strategy in in CANZUK (ie Australia (gone), New Zealand (going), UK (losing), and Canada (nearly lost).  Lost, losing nearly lost? This is the infrastructure of all 4 countries to the CHICOMS. It is clear that China is separating these four English speaking countries from America as a pre-emptive action to invasion. This is obviously being done to separate America from major trading partners and military allies. This also gives China control over the South Pacific. America is very close to standing alone.

If California falls after the election and leaves the union as CALEXIT threatens to do, Pearl Harbor would have to be abandoned. The CHICOMS will control Washington, Oregon, and California, all who have pledged to withdraw from America if they do not like the result of the election. This will provide a major beachhead for the CHICOMS.

One month ago, I showed one of my previous articles on this topic to a former military analyst and he said contingency plans to house West coast military facilities will be transferred to East coast control, are in existence but he did not know if they have been rehearsed. This is merely a status report on the anecdotal accounts of four Canadians acquired over an 8 week period. I believe these accounts to be accurate because there are other accounts similar to these, for example in the broadcasts of Sarah Westall. At that time of my discovery of CHICOM military in Canada, I stated that this story will obviously be continued as more information is acquired. Well, more information has been acquired on the same topic and much of it confirms what is written here.

Hal Turner wrote and article which encouraged all Americans to arm themselves and individually prepare for war as  China is massing “Tens-of-Thousands” of military troops in Prince Rupert and Vancouver Canada. Quite obviously, the CHICOMs are there for a reason. Further, the United States is responding by sending  moving self-propelled artillery to the border with Quebec, following the reports of uniformed Chinese troops in western half of Canada. At the same time, many Canadian military units have been moved to the Eastern half of the country.

The CSS has never received so many hateful emails on any one subject as the website is in its 9th year. Here is an example of the violent and profanity laced emails I have received since covering the CHICOM occupation of British Colombia:

Dear Dave Hodges

You are a lying sack of s____. There are absolutely no Chinese troops in Vancouver. How dare you denigrate Canadian citizens of Chinese extraction as being part of your so called Chinese military force ready to invade the United States. 

You and that lying bitch, Sara Westall are engaging in click bait for ratings. You are both pieces of _____. F___ you! You both and that a___hole Hal Turner are all paranoid and profiteering pieces of s____! I hope that some Chinese would take you all out!!   

We know that the CHICOMS flood our internet with provocative posts designed to influence opinions that are not censored out by Google, Youtube, Twitter and Facebook. This is what we are seeing here.

The CSS has also covered what is going on south of our border as CHICOM controlled forces are in the process of taking over the Northern states in preparation for a military invasion. In the past week, Sarah Westall and myself have added Hal Turner and Sam Honnold as sources that are validating our claims that we are about to be invaded.

Subsequently, to this new information coming to the forefront, I consulted with my two best sources who both have extensive military intelligence experience. With minor exceptions, these two sources agreed on the following:

  • If it appears that the American election is going be won by Trump, this will set into motion an invasion of Taiwan by China, while simultaneously using their terrorist assets inside the United States to attack infrastructure and any targets which would hinder the defense of the lower 48. 
  • As America allocates resources to the defense of Taiwan, India will attack China. China will roll their troops across both the Northern and Southern US borders. World War III will begin in earnest. By the way, China, Pakistan and China will engage in a nuclear exchange. However, America will not be nuked by China because they want to occupy an intact country with full access to existing resources. 
  • The most surprising aspect of this scenario is that both sources believe that the 3 most Western governors (ie Newsom, Brown, Inslee) will provide aid and comfort to our invaders. They both reasoned that all three governors have allowed undue CHICOM and their terrorist allies to flourish within their respective territorial control as evidenced by what has happened at the Long Beach Port, Seattle and Portland. 
  • Both sources agree, that based upon public statements made by senior Chinese officials, the United States can expect a “no quarter”, meaning no prisoners policy. Everyone in the West will be a front line participant. The irony, as one source stated, is that BLM and Antifa will be murdered along with the rest of America. 
  • To stop the attack, the US will have to deploy and use tactical nuclear weapons. This will unintentionally kill millions of innocent Americans. I was told by both that whatever measures needed will be used without regard to civilian casualties due to the genocidal nature of the attack. Therefore, it will be better to sacrifice some, rather than all. I was also told that the Chinese will have difficulty deaing with Continuity of Government tunnels in which heavy weapons, including theater nuclear weapons can be rapidly moved and brought into action. 
  • One source mentioned what Paul Preston has told me before: The dams in Southern Oregon and Northern California, all having ADM’s, and they will be detonated, by radio frequency, if the Chinese advance is not stopped.  The intent is stop the CHICOM advance out of Canada by the release of road-destroying massive amounts of water. (Editor’s Note: If the Oroville Dam were to be sacrificed 2 million people in the Central Valley of California will be in extreme danger). 
  • Nuclear ordinance will be used on our Southern border because the potential numbers of invading troops will be astronomical. The entire border region would likely become a wasteland, on both sides of the border. Northern Mexico might be uninhabitable for a generation.  
  • If Obama appointed command officers participate in the internal plot to overthrow America, America’s military response could be limited, thus, aiding in the CHICOMS being able to control both borders as they advance both north and south as they link up and prepare to move east. This is a major wild card. This is also why since, April, both Northcom and Southcom commanders are sequestered in protective custody. Obama’s actions to fire approximately 400 senior command military officers during his tenure, implicates him in a treasonous  plot against the United States. 

If the readers are stunned at the expected US military response, so was this author. I will save the best for last. I was told by both, that forces loyal to the United States, will be willing to expend their entire nuclear arsenal on our enemies and this includes our approximate 80 nuclear submarines that Obama loyalists do not control. What is most frightening is that this could happen this week or next year. All moves are in the CHICOM hands. By the way, “Richie From Boston”, videotaped massive American military movement throughout Wyoming. Heavily armed military, accompanied by “Federal Police”, helicopters and heavily armored vehicles, were transporting something inside of large trucks.I suspect that these massive trucks are theater nuclear weapons mentioned in this report. Everyone is a front line participant. Vote, hunker down and quickly finish your preparations. 

And to think that we did not even discuss the UN factor. They will play a role, but both my sources said that the UN will not be able to participate in the invasion of the United States because of division within its own ranks among member nations.

Ukraine Press Conference Explicitly Ties Hunter & Joe Biden To Corruption

by Tyler Durden Tuesday, December 29, 2020 – 9:55 https://www.zerohedge.com/political/ukraine-press-conference-explicitly-ties-hunter-joe-biden-corruption

Authored by Andrea Widburg via AmericanThinker.com,

A video from a press conference in Ukraine is going viral. It is the follow-up to a video press conference that Ukraine released over a year ago, in which Members of the Ukraine Parliament demanded that President Zelensky and President Trump investigate billions of dollars of corruption in Ukraine that is tied to the U.S. The newly released video is meant to provide documentary and eyewitness information about the corruption – and the Biden family figures prominently in the story.

The video is long – over an hour – and not all of it involves the Biden family. This post quotes those portions of the press conference that address Biden family corruption. The gist of it is that, while Democrats obsess about Trump’s purported criminality, despite the absence of any evidence, their chosen standard-bearer is extraordinarily corrupt.

Indeed, I would argue that Biden is one of the most corrupt politicians ever in America. In the past, corrupt politicians have confined themselves to playing dirty in their own back yard, making money from deals with fellow Americans.

I believe that Biden is the first person ever to serve in the highest reaches of government – the Senate and the Vice Presidency – who sold his country out to the highest foreign bidders. It’s an insult to everything America has stood for since its inception that massive election fraud might allow this person to set foot in the oval office.

With that intro, here’s the video, followed by quotations from the video regarding Joe and Hunter Biden. I recommend Nabu Leaks for more information, enlarged pictures of the relevant documents naming the Bidens, audios of phone calls between Biden and former President Poroshenko after Trump won the election, and the full transcript of the press conference.

Ukraine Press Conference December 27th 2020

From the introduction:

At one of the first press conferences about a year ago, we showed bank transactions for hundreds of thousands of dollars to the family of former US Vice President Joe Biden, namely to his son Robert Hunter Biden. The latter was a member of the board of directors of the infamous gas production company Burisma.

Burisma belongs to the fugitive Yanukovych-era minister Mykola Zlochevsky.

The inclusion of Biden in the Burisma leadership and payment for his services is nothing more than a political cover that protected Zlochevsky from the Ukrainian law, namely from the criminal code.

Two foreign witnesses whose identities are protected – Witness 1 and Witness 2 – came forward to testify about the facts of the case. Konstantyn Kulyk, the Head of the Group of Prosecutors of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine, explained what the witnesses offered:

One quote from a statement by a Witness:

All the described financial transactions were fictitious. And a lot of money was paid in Ukraine so that the state authorities turned a blind eye to it.”

[snip]

In the period from November 2014 to October 2015, the Witnesses noticed strange recurring payments that, at the direction of Oleh Nelin (Zlochevsky’s assistant in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine), were sent from the account of BURISMA HOLDINGS LTD, which was opened for the personal needs of Mykola Zlochevsky, in the Latvian PrivatBank AS to the account of the American company ROSEMONT SENECA BONAI LLC.

The witnesses drew attention to these payments since about 20 times the same uneven amount was recurring – $83,333.33 as payment for consulting services.

[snip]

In the period from November 2014 to October 2015, the money stolen from Ukrainians, located on account of BURISMA HOLDINGS LTD with the Latvian PrivatBank AS, was transferred to the account of ROSEMONT SENECA BONAI LLC in the American bank MORGAN STANLEY in payments in total amounting to $3.4 million for consulting services.

[snip]

This is a payment for the political “cover” that Biden provided to Zlochevsky.

The video offers a graphic image showing the flow of money and favors:

Ukraine Press Conference Explicitly Ties Hunter & Joe Biden To Corruption

Andrii Derkach picked up the narrative. He focused on Joe Biden’s conversations with Former President Poroshenko when Viktor Shokin, a prosecutor, started looking into Zlochevsky’s graft. As we all know, Biden openly boasted about holding up money from the U.S. unless Poroshenko fired Shokin.

The press conference included audio from a November 16, 2016 conversation between Biden and Poroshenko. Biden was wheeling and dealing for influence and money – and conducting foreign policy behind Trump’s back. The men spoke again in February 2017, at which time Biden smothered Poroshenko with fulsome compliments.

Ukraine’s government is gunning for Joe Biden. The Ukrainians know Biden helped prop up a corrupt government in their country and that he profited mightily from doing so. No wonder this video has gone viral.

V FOR VENDETTA

America Will Remember the 5th of November

By John Galt on 05November2020 https://johngaltfla.com/world-news/america-will-remember-the-5th-of-november/

Today will be remembered as the final nail in the coffin of the once great United States of America as the new Globalist Banana Republic is born.

At some point late this afternoon, the state of Nevada and possibly others, will give Joe Biden the phony victory using the same methodical voter fraud that Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan engaged in. The state controlled mainstream media will then declare Joe Biden the President-Elect. The calls will begin for Trump supporters and the President himself to act civil and accept the election results as the “will of the people.”

The will of the people has been suppressed however. The Democrat Party along with the international handlers who control our media are going to force the masses to believe that many states had 85%+ participation in this year’s election; a statistical impossibility. Along with the voter in Detroit, Michigan who voted for Mr. Biden who was born in 1823.

If anyone realistically thinks that the Supreme Court of the United States will help, I simply remind my readers of the event which accelerated our nation’s decline:

On June 28, 2012 Justice John Roberts decided to re-write the ACA in his stunning decision in NFIB v. Sebelius.

With this decision the case law for allowing judges to become legislators became a permanent part of remodeling the judicial role in society and that ideology has trickled down to the local and state level. Add in his recent action regarding the Pennsylvania Supreme Court this election cycle and it is apparent that there will be no Constitutional redress for the individual regarding election fraud in our nation.

Ever.

With the emergence of our nation as a full fledged Banana Republic, I suggest every patriotic American fly their U.S. flag upside down after the results are announced and leave them there until January 20, 2021. After that date, a more appropriate flag should be flown until our nation’s Constitution is restored:

FEC Chair Drops the Hammer: The Results Are ‘Illegitimate’

Trey Trainor reveals major bombshell regarding count

By: Jay Greenberg  |@NeonNettle
on 12th November 2020 @ 3.00pm https://neonnettle.com/news/13219-fec-chair-drops-the-hammer-the-results-are-illegitimate-

FEC Chairman Trey Trainor has dropped the hammer on the results

FEC Chairman Trey Trainor has dropped the hammer on the results

Federal Election Commission (FEC) Chairman Trey Trainor has dropped the hammer by declaring that the results are “illegitimate.”

Trainor has gone on record with a bombshell announcement, following investigations into the election ballot count in Pennsylvania.

The FEC chair says, based on the info gathered from PA and elsewhere in the country, this presidential election is illegitimate.

Trainor, the highest-ranking election official in the United States, confirmed that, in his professional opinion, “there has not been transparency in the election.”

The evidence produced so far has led him to determine that “this election is illegitimate,” Trainor added.

He dropped the bombshell on the liberal news media at Newsmax when he made the announcement, saying he believes “that there is voter fraud taking place in these places.”

Several allegations have been made about the ballot counts in multiple states

There is no legitimate reason at all for observers to be denied access to the ballot counting, Trainor confirmed, adding that the ballot counting must be considered “illegitimate.”

The announcement from Trainor, America’s top federal election official, is bound rock the boat of those who have declared victory for Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Speaking to Newsmax, Chairman Trainor highlighted the importance of election integrity:

“Despite winning a court order which allows the Trump campaign to send observers to watch ballot counting in Pennsylvania from six feet away ballot watchers ‘have not been allowed into the polling locations in a meaningful way.’”

“When observers have been permitted to watch, the goalpost has been moved away,” Trainor points out.

Simply put, “there has not been transparency in the election.”

“Our whole political system is based upon transparency to avoid the appearance of corruption,” Trainor insists.

“State law allows those observers to be in there. 

“If the law isn’t being followed then this election is ‘illegitimate.’”

Our whole political system is based upon transparency to avoid the appearance of corruption – Trainor insists

The Trump campaign held a press conference on Saturday to make a big announcement of their own.

They declared they will go to war over this in the courts.

As Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said, the media don’t get to decide who won the election — judges do.

Chairman Trainor, an old school gunslinger from Texas appointed by Trump, is behind them all the way.

What Team Trump is claiming are “very valid allegations,” he agrees.

The allegations need to be “fully vetted” by the court system.

He predicts that the charges are serious enough to “end up in the Supreme Court.”

The ‘Smartest Man In The Room’ Just Joined Sidney Powell’s Team

by Tyler Durden 29November2020 – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/smartest-man-room-just-joined-sidney-powells-team

Authored by Andrea Widburg via AmericanThinker.com,

In her Georgia complaint, Sidney Powell included the declaration of Navid Keshavarz-Nia, an expert witness who stated under oath that there was massive computer fraud in the 2020 election, all of it intended to secure a victory for Joe Biden.  Dr. Kershavarz-Nia’s name may not mean a lot to you, but it’s one of the weightiest names in the world when it comes to sniffing out cyber-security problems.

Voting Machine

We know how important Dr. Kershavarz-Nia is because, just two and a half months ago, the New York Times ran one of its Sunday long-form articles about a massive, multi-million-dollar fraud that a talented grifter ran against the American intelligence and military communities.  Dr. Kershavarz-Nia is one of the few people who comes off looking good:

Navid Keshavarz-Nia, those who worked with him said, “was always the smartest person in the room.” In doing cybersecurity and technical counterintelligence work for the C.I.A., N.S.A. and F.B.I., he had spent decades connecting top-secret dots. After several months of working with Mr. Courtney, he began connecting those dots too. He did not like where they led.

Not only does Dr. Kershavarz-Nia have an innate intelligence, but he’s also got extraordinary academic and practical skills in cyber-fraud detection and analysis.  The reason we know about his qualifications is that it takes seven paragraphs for him to list them in the declaration he signed to support the Georgia complaint.

His qualifications include a B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. in various areas of electrical and computer engineering.  In addition, “I have advanced trained from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), National Security Agency (NSA), DHS office of Intelligence & Analysis (I&A) and Massachusetts Institution of Technology (MIT).”

Professionally, Dr. Kershavarz-Nia has spent his career as a cyber-security engineer.

“My experience,” he attests,” spans 35 years performing technical assessment, mathematical modeling, cyber-attack pattern analysis, and security intelligence[.]” 

I will not belabor the point.  Take it as given that Dr. Kershavarz-Nia may know more about cyber-security than anyone else in America.

So what does the brilliant Dr. Kershavarz-Nia have to say?  This:

1. Hammer and Scorecard is real, not a hoax (as Democrats allege), and both are used to manipulate election outcomes.

2. Dominion, ES&S, Scytl, and Smartmatic are all vulnerable to fraud and vote manipulation — and the mainstream media reported on these vulnerabilities in the past.

3. Dominion has been used in other countries to “forge election results.”

4. Dominion’s corporate structure is deliberately confusing to hide relationships with Venezuela, China, and Cuba.

5. Dominion machines are easily hackable.

6. Dominion memory cards with cryptographic key access to the systems were stolen in 2019.

Although he had no access to the machines, Dr. Kershavarz has looked at available data about the election and the vote results.  Based on that information, he concluded

1. The counts in the disputed states (Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, Nevada, and Georgia) show electronic manipulation.

2. The simultaneous decision in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Arizona, Nevada, and Georgia to pretend to halt counting votes was unprecedented and demonstrated a coordinated effort to collude toward desired results.

3. One to two percent of votes were forged in Biden’s favor.

4. Optical scanners were set to accept unverified, un-validated ballots.

5. The scanners failed to keep records for audits, an outcome that must have been deliberately programmed.

6. The stolen cryptographic key, which applied to all voting systems, was used to alter vote counts.

7. The favorable votes pouring in after hours for Biden could not be accounted for by a Democrat preference for mailed in ballots.  They demonstrated manipulation.  For example, in Pennsylvania, it was physically impossible to feed 400,000 ballots into the machines within 2–3 hours.

8. Dominion used Chinese parts, and there’s reason to believe that China, Venezuela, Cuba interfered in the election.

9. There was a Hammer and Scorecard cyber-attack that altered votes in the battleground states, and then forwarded the results to Scytl servers in Frankfurt, Germany, to avoid detection.

10. The systems failed to produce any auditable results.

Based on the above findings, Dr. Keshavarz-Nia concluded with “high confidence that the election 2020 data were altered in all battleground states resulting in a [sic] hundreds of thousands of votes that were cast for President Trump to be transferred [sic] to Vice President Biden.”

This is going to be tough evidence for Democrats to counter.  Back when the naïve Democrats thought Trump would be the one to commit fraud, they held congressional hearings and wrote articles about the voting machines’ vulnerability.  And with the New York Times touting Dr. Keshavarz-Nia’s brilliance and his ability to sniff out fraud, they’ll struggle to that he’s not a reliable expert.  Things are getting fun.

Michael Flynn Says Coup Against Trump Still In Progress In First Public Remarks Since Pardon

by Tyler Durden 29November2020 – 15:20 https://www.zerohedge.com/political/michael-flynn-says-coup-against-trump-still-progress-first-public-remarks-pardon

Authored by Melanie Sun via The Epoch Times,

Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said there is “still a coup in progress” against President Donald Trump in his first public address since being pardoned by the president.

 

Flynn, who also served during the Obama administration as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency and then as Trump’s national security adviser, warned Americans on Saturday that there is currently an “assault” on our way of life that has been going on since the beginning of Trump’s presidency.

“They’ve upped their game,” Flynn said of certain figures in the Democratic Party, which he said was so “in name only” since its shift “way over on the left.”

“When they lost in 2016, I think that there was a decision to say, ‘We’re not going to allow this to happen again,’” Flynn said of the Democratic Party’s leadership.

He then pointed to the heightened political divisiveness during the entire four years of the Trump presidency, during which time the mainstream media alongside what he described as effectively the “Democratic Socialist Party of America” have been trying to remove Trump from office.

“I mean, I think what we experienced over the last four years—and certainly in the late 2016, early 2017 period—was a very strong effort to unseat a duly elected president,” Flynn said.

He said that Trump, as a non-politician from New York, faced an unprecedented onslaught of political, technological, and also financial pressure early in his tenure to force him to walk away from politics.

“I know there was some sentiment that maybe he’ll just … say, ‘You know what, I don’t need this stuff. I got better things to do,’ and leave.

“Thank God that he didn’t,” Flynn said.

But as Trump remained in office, Flynn said the political establishment and the media continued to go after him “in any way possible,” which played out publicly in “psychological operations” such as Russia probe and House Democrats’ impeachment effort, and more recently the politicization of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic.

Now, Flynn claimed, because the Democratic Party didn’t achieve the result in the vote it needed to secure its candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden, in the White House, America is seeing “theft with mail-in ballots” and “theft with this Smartmatic software and Dominion systems.”

“This is still a coup in progress,” he said.

He went further to say that the ideological cousin of America’s far-left political groups, the Chinese Communist Party, has interests in supporting such a coup.

“What we have seen is … over the last probably two decades … is a complete shift in how fast, I believe, that communist China in their long term plan decided to sort of move up their plans to become the sole global superpower on the planet.

“I believe when during the last 2016 election, when they didn’t get the candidate that they needed, and the kind of ideology that they they saw America moving towards, they were not going to allow 2020 to happen,” Flynn said, blaming the foreign-owned software systems used in the election for leaving the country vulnerable to foreign interference.

But he added, with the “hundreds and hundreds” of American patriots across the country coming forward to offer their witness testimony as affidavits to “warriors” on the legal battleground, like Rudy Giuliani and Lin Wood, “I believe we’re going to see some momentum changing here.

“There already is an undercurrent of momentum shifting for the president and I believe that at the end of the day, we’re going to find out that he won by a massive landslide and he’ll be inaugurated come this January,” Flynn said, referring to the numerous legal challenges currently pending or being considered by courts in battleground states and the supreme court.

Flynn made headlines in 2017 when he was targeted by the intelligence community for charges of “Russia collusion.”

While he pleaded guilty on Dec. 1, 2017, to one count of lying to the FBI over speaking to then-Russian ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak during Trump’s 2016 transition period, Flynn later withdrew his plea, saying that it was part of a deal with prosecutors over threats of charges targeting his son. The retired general also accused the government of misconduct related to his case.

His case was used by the media to push the unsubstantiated narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to sway the outcome of the 2016 election.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) of the Senate Judiciary Committee said on Nov. 10 that the FBI’s motivation for pursuing Flynn was “bogus political persecution and prosecution” by those who disagree “politically with President Trump.”

The Proof Is In: The Election Was Stolen

By
PaulCraigRoberts.org
December 1, 2020 https://www.lewrockwell.com/2020/12/paul-craig-roberts/the-proof-is-in-the-election-was-stolen/?fbclid=IwAR1ZrSmQiX-tdZIUReT8L-cWZSMYGctBeiSc9-pSkz-XRLwDiSWiBn-3KgU

I have read enough of the fraud reports, affidavits, and statements from election security and forensic experts to be comfortable in my conclusion that the election was stolen.  But I am not confident that anything will be done about the fradulent election. The American elite no longer believe in democracy. Consider, for example, the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset.  It is anti-democratic, as is globalism. Democracy is in the way of elite agendas.  Indeed, the reason the elite despise Trump is that he bases himself in the people. Judges will not even preserve the vote record so that it can be investigated. In Georgia a federal judge has refused to stop the Dominion voting machines from being wiped clean and reset UPDATE: Judge overturns his previous order and reinstates ban on wiping and reseting Dominion machines used in Atlanta. 

For those of you who find it too technical and volumnious to read through the massive evidence of election fraud, here is a brief summary:

Electoral fraud was organized in all of the states.  The purpose was not to try to steal the red states, but to make the vote look closer than the expected pattern in order to provide cover for extensive fraud in the critical swing states.

The voting machines were programmed to allocate votes with a bias toward Biden.  The result was to cut back Trump’s margin of victory in red states.  In swing states more extensive measures were used. The Biden bias programmed in the voting machines was raised.  As a backup, large numbers of fraudulent mail-in ballots were accumulated in the Democrat-controlled cities in the swing states—Milwaukee, Detroit, and Philadelphia.  Although Georgia is a red state, the same occured in Democrat-controlled Atlanta.  The reason voting was stopped in the middle of the night in these cities was to prepare the mail-in ballots necessary to overtake Trump’s sizeable lead and enter them into the count.  This is a time when poll watchers were told to go home, and it is a period when both Democrat and Republican watchers observed numerous acts of fraud of every description.  You can review the types of fraud in the references at the end ot this article.

There are proven votes from the grave, from unregistered people, from out-of-state people. There are back-dated mail-in ballots. There are mail-in ballots without a crease, that is, ballots never folded and placed in an envelop, and so on and on.  There are places where the vote exceeds the number of registered voters.

A number of independent unbiased experts have reported that the Biden vote spikes in the early hours of the morning are either impossible or so improbable as to have a very low probability of occurring.  For them to occur simultaneously in different states falls outside the range of believability.

It is clear that the voting procedures imposed by Democrats in Pennsylvania are in violation of the Pennsylvania state constitution. A Pennsylvania state judge has permitted that suit to go forward and gave her opinion that it would succeed. I am confident that the corrupt Pennsylvania state Supreme Court will overturn her ruling.

If following all of this is too demanding for your time and energy, fall back on common sense:

Consider that Joe Biden’s Twitter account has 20 million followers.  Trump’s Twitter account has 88.8 million followers.

Consider that Joe Biden’s Facebook account has 7.78 million followers.  Trump’s Facebook account has 34.72 million followers.

How likely is it that a person with four to five times the following of his rival lost the election?

Consider that Joe Biden, declared by the biased presstitutes to be president by landslide, gave a Thanksgiving Day message and only 1,000 people watched his live statement.  Where is the enthusiasm?

Consider that Trump’s campaign appearances were heavily attended and that Biden’s were avoided.  Somehow a candidate who could not draw supporters to his campaign appearances won the presidency.

Consider that despite Biden’s total failure to animate voters during the presidential campaign, he received 15 million more votes than Barack Obama did in his 2012 re-election.

Consider that Biden won despite underperforming Hillary Clinton’s 2016 vote in every urban US county, but outperformed Clinton in Democrat-controlled Detroit, Milwaukee, Atlanta, and Philadelphia, the precise cities where the most obvious and most blatant electoral fraud was committed.

Consider that Biden won despite receiving a record low share of the Democrat primary vote compared to Trump’s share of the Republican primary vote.

Consider that Biden won despite Trump bettering his 2016 vote by ten million votes and Trump’s record support from minority voters.

Consider that Biden won despite losing the bellwether counties that have always predicted the election outcome and the bellwether states of Ohio and Florida.

Consider that Biden won in Georgia, a completely red state with a red governor and legislature both House and Senate.  Somehow a red state voted for a blue president.

Consider that Biden won despite the Democrats losing representation in the House.

Consider that in Pennsylvania 47 memory cards containing more than 50,000 votes are missing.

Consider that in Pennsylvania 1.8 million ballots were mailed out to voters, but 2.5 million mail-in ballots were counted.

Consider that the presstitutes have zero interest in this massive list of improbables.

Consider that the pressititues, the Democrats, the social media and tech executives, and universities have far more loyalty to getting Trump out of office regardless of the means than they have to democratic outcomes and fair elections.  The massive fraud of the 2020 election was only possible because the liberal part of America has divorced American values and has no respect for them. The American liberal is no longer liberal. He has morphed into a fascist who suppresses speech and denies legitimacy to other opinions. Indeed, liberals are so hostile to electoral integrity that they want those who bring evidence of electoral fraud to be imprisoned.

It is educated Americans brainwashed by Critical Race Theory and Identity Politics who are liberals, not the working class who are the real Americans.  Red state people are Americans. Blue state people are not.  Blue state people demonize real Americans and have branded them racists and misogynists. Real Americans—the majority of the population—are “the Trump deplorables.”

The Real Americans have just had their democracy stolen from them by people who have no integrity and no honor.

If the stolen election stands, America falls.

But more than an election has been stolen.  The deep state, Democratic National Committee, and media whores did not steal the election because they don’t like Trump’s hair, or because he is a racist, a misogynist, a Russian agent or caused Covid, or for any of the other false accusations raised against him for four years.  Trump is hated because he is anti-establishment.  Trump opposes the elite’s sacrifice of Americans’ jobs and hopes to globalism and the elites’ own bulging pocketbooks. Trump opposes the elite’s erasure of American monuments and history, such as the New York Times 1619 Project that paints all white Americans racist.  Trump objects to the elite’s demonization of white Americans and the discrimination that elites enforce against heterosexual white males in schools and employment.  Trump stands against Identity Politics, the hate-filled ideology of liberal America. When liberals call Trump a racist, they mean he doesn’t share their demonization of white people.  If you don’t demonize white Americans, you are a racist.   

Trump is a populist, a president of ordinary people.  Trump is hated, because he was intent on rescuing ordinary Americans from subservience to the agendas of the elite.  Unfortunately, being a populist is not enough to overthrow an entrenched elite.  Only a revolutionary can do that, and Trump is not a revolutionary leader.

The elite are getting rid of Trump in a way that makes it clear to all presidential candidates in the future that their only choice is to represent the elite.  If somehow an anti-establishment person slips in, he will experience the same fate as Trump’s four years.  The Dominion machines and corrupt Democrat big city regimes will steal his reelection even if enough voters have escaped their intended brainwashing to defend their champion in the voting booths.

Trump’s Department of Justice has failed him. So has the FBI, CIA, NSA, and Homeland Security. This is easy to understand. These are establishment institutions. They protect the establishment, not law and justice. Will the judiciary be the next to fail the president and American democracy?

If the stolen election, which is a coup, stands, after Trump no presidential candidate will dare to attempt to represent the American people.

If this stolen election stands, there is no hope that government can be returned to the people.

Trump’s Counter Coup Against the Deep State, the Democrats and Their CHICOM Allies Is Underway

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Sunday, January 10, 2021 – 16:12. https://thecommonsenseshow.com/activism-conspiracy-tragedy/trumps-counter-coup-against-deep-state-democrats-and-their-chicom-allies-underway

As the Democrats move to silence conservative voice prior to the scheduled inauguration, Trump is stepping up his response the near total blackout of both him and his supporters. Never before has a President been silenced. This clearly signals the fact that the President is a marked man.

Yesterday, the existing evidence suggests that the President has a full-fledged response to the coup that has beset his nation. This country had better hope and pray that Trump is successful, because when the Democrats are done with the patriots that make up the majority of the people in this country, then it will be the CHICOM’s turn . America is about ready to experience both the nazification reminiscent of Hitler’s Germany and the mass killings of entire regions which was representative of Stalin’s approach to handling dissident pressure.

At present, Trump has secured the support of 40 Generals who represent a variety of command interests ranging from a theater of operations in foreign lands and base commanders. The Joint Chiefs do not support Trump. However, there is a possibility that this may change. As has been reported before, if Trump allows the US to engage Chinese in a minimum action of at least a regional war, the Deep State controlled military industrial complex, will force the Joint Chiefs to support Trump. The Joint Chiefs feel as if they are caught in the middle. Further, America’s Special Operations Forces are now under one command, under one commander he reports directly to Trump. They are capable of taking out the Pentagon and as such, pose a direct threat to the Joint Chiefs. Haven’t you noticed the blackout of comments from the Pentagon this controversy.

I was told, last night, that troops, in the tens of thousands at each site, have been deployed to traditional “blue cities” for riot control. For example, there are 7,000 troops in the nation’s capital. Below is a communication I was sent prior to the weekend’s end by Paul Preston, the President of the New California 51st State movement.

 

IT’S HAPPENING!

Military takedowns and arrests begin this wknd and will continue forward for the next 13 days/nights. Some international raids have already started. Italy has also been found complicit in our election fraud.

Everyone will be getting emergency 🆘 alerts on their phones, tv’s, radios & internet. It will override all other broadcasts and could last for several hours at a time. Do not to be scared of what’s coming as it is for the safety of our nation for this to unfold.

DO NOT travel to any large cities (especially Philadelphia) for the rest of the month. Military operations will be taking place in many of the major corrupt cities. People will start rioting once this intel breaks thinking Trump is a military dictator. He only has 13 days to put this dog down.

The implementation of the Insurrection Act began after the raid on the Capitol and was marked by Trump’s broadcast to the people to disband and return home. This broadcast wound up being blocked, for the most part, by the media. Nevertheless, his address fulfilled the requirements to initiate the Act.

Marines and National Guard troops are being moved as needed for the riots that will start after the national release of the intel. The intel will be dropped for everyone to see and hear in loops that will be several hours long. The system was just checked by the FCC a few days ago alerting ALL media that they cannot block the flow of intel under federal regs.

Trump will be moved continuously like a chess piece from now until the 20th in order to avoid any retaliation against him and family.

Trump had to exhaust ALL other means legally before this operation could commence. He gave everyone a fair chance to come clean and they refused.

His press release of a “smooth transition” did not include the word, “concede” as he has no plans to do so. Rather, there will be a smooth transition of power to his new cabinet, staff and Vice President, General Flynn.

Along these lines, former CIA officer, Robert David Steele, is reporting that the President of Italy has reportedly been arrested by Trump-supporting interests for Italy’s role in US voter fraud. Steele alleges that we can expect service disruptions with regard to credit card usage, cell phone use, etc. This would constitute an attack on the United States. Steele alleges that the military supports Trump. However, the CSS stands by the previous statement this is a counter-coup against Biden and his Deep State handlers led by 40 Generals. I agree with Steele’s assertion that some arrests have begun and more are coming. Steele also states that Biden will be arrested in phase two of this counter-coup operation.

The so called fiction team of the Deep State, the so-called fact-checkers have sprung into action immediately upon the release of the Steele statements and have vociferously tried to discredit him. As Shakespeare stated, “I think thou doth protest too loudly.”

The CSS will have an update on Mnuchin-Putin brokered deal later this afternoon which involves, Iran, Israel, Russia and Turkey. Before closing, it is important to get people to not that the blackout imposed on Pakistan is part of this deal as well. And now there are rumblings that North Korea may enter into this new alliance as well. In case the reading public has not noticed, this is called aligning before the war starts. China and the Eastern European contingent of NATO as well as France and the UK have aligned against Trump could comprise the heart, along with the CHICOMS of an international that will represent the UN which will enter America by request of Biden et al.

In closing this report, I want to be clear. This entire plan is predicated on the uncompromising support of these 40 Generals. If this coalition fragments and loses its will, the entire Trump counter-coup against the Deep State will fail. This plot has so many similarities with the Rommel-led plot to overthrow Hitler and this plot collapsed because some of the Nazi Generals lost their will.
