THE QUALITY OF HUMANS

by James Hufferd, Ph.D., Coordinator
911 Truth Grassroots Organization

_ _ _ _ _

The American “Founding Fathers” in assembly mutually pledged “our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor” in support of the Unanimous Declaration of Independence, a sobering, decidedly low-percentage gamble early in the war of the American Revolution, at a time when the father of them all, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania, waggishly warned that they had better “all hang together, or assuredly… all hang separately”. A serious prospect. Proof, if ever there was such a thing, that they meant exactly what they said. And their rank and file equals wore bloody rags on their feet in the winter snow, enduring. Together, these guys did their part, although others (or they themselves) may have fumbled later.

Now the question: Have you heard or seen any of the semi-concealed multi-billionaire, obviously super-arrogant Central Bankers who tighten a leveraged vice with undreamed-of levels of Torquemada-like torque to squeeze the world into humble submission, or warmonger Neocons, while pulling down regularly their millions and millions of dollars in blood money, out-of-sight overseas lucre (mostly from American taxpayers and extortionary prices, by the way), ever say (and/or be construed to mean) anything even remotely similar? You haven’t?

Then, how do they always seem to manage to keep the upper hand and continue to strangle us? 1) They’re tightly organized and disciplined, 2) They have all the money in the world – literally – to apply and buy whatever knowledge (note: not wisdom), skills, and technology required – reminiscent of the advantages the British held over the American colonists, 3) Generally speaking, they have no empathy or conscience to restrain them, understanding and valuing only, or primarily, money and power, which yield the benefit that they can do literally anything to forward their pursuit of control and ever-greater, by quantum degree, wealth. No matter who or how many die in whatever manner or how much pain, anguish, and calamity they cause others: just so they and they alone win. Which is precisely why and how those sordid willfully-controlling individuals, and not others, attain the positions they must fight to hold. At least nine times out of ten.

If you don’t think these are monsters, just look at what they’ve done, when everybody knows there’s a better way, at least for everybody else, the other 7 billion who share the planet. And then there’s the fact that we’re to swallow that whatever best suits them to tell us is the truth. Give me a break! Case closed.

That’s our enemy in a nutshell, which is where they belong. Instead, they hold sway. In the government. In the industries. In command of the battlefield. In the propaganda mills. A legend in their own mind.

Lots of people are on our side, in opposition to their tightening control, in favor of individual rights and evidentiary thinking and the ability to control each one her or his own life and be justly rewarded for meaningfully contributing and participating. Yearning to all live free of the terror and onus imposed by the craftily-organized powerful united cabal and deceitfully blamed on selected scapegoats and “enemies”. Lots of “enemies”. And lots on our side. Many talk the talk but, unfortunately, relatively few contribute much of anything to defeat and overthrow the deadly global organizers of the NWO. In other (actually the same) words: many know, and many talk the talk to each other. Which is free and easy.

To do more than that, and stand to make a difference in the long battle requires longsuffering determination. Requires ingenuity and lots of creative thinking, since our side isn’t at all tightly organized, with explicit marching orders, while they are.

It requires a heart for the rights, freedom, and happiness of ordinary people, no matter who they are or where they reside. It requires a dedication to the triumph and proliferation of real, verifiable truth and justice – for all. And, in the long run, it requires the ability to accept and encourage the contributions of others with whom you may not agree on even one single other thing.

If we sort out among ourselves and self-select on the basis of just those traits, replacing their ruthlessness and conformity with free expression and caring, dedicating and pooling our different skills, we will win the battle against oppression and madness, because we will have more powerful values, and because we are more. Most people on the planet are with us.

So, with effort, we should win against Washington the syndicate, like the army of Washington, an exemplary man, vanquished their predecessors in the dawning light of the modern age. The contrast in visions and prospects is just too astounding and, I believe, ultimately consequential. But it will take gumption.

Do I see any hands? Any Washingtons?

FBI Runs Another "ISIS Terrorist Jihad" Attack In San Francisco, Precedents

GOING ALL THE WAY BACK TO MAX VON OPPENHEIM THE FBI RUNS ANOTHER “ISIS TERRORIST JIHAD ATTACK” IN SAN FRANCISCO
December 30, 2017

Source: 7SanDiego

California Man Charged With Plotting Christmas Day Attack in SF
By Rhea Mahbubani and Brendan Weber • December 22, 2017

A Modesto man was charged Friday with plotting a terror attack — using explosives and a truck — in San Francisco on Christmas Day “in support of ISIS,” according to a criminal complaint.

The suspect, Everitt Aaron Jameson, 26, is accused of providing “material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization” between Oct. 24 and Dec. 20, and expressing his willingness to “do anything for ‘the cause,'” according to an affidavit filed by FBI Special Agent Christopher McKinney.

The plot was uncovered by way of a monthslong sting operation that involved two undercover FBI employees and a confidential informant, who communicated with Jameson first through private messages and then on social media.

Jameson “identified a possible target location, noting that the best place would be a large area such as San Francisco,” according to the court document. He singled out Pier 39, knowing that it was a “heavily crowded area.” Jameson picked the popular tourist destination, saying he was familiar with it and wouldn’t need to scout the location beforehand.

The time in question for the attack was between Dec. 18 and 25 because, according to Jameson, “Christmas was the perfect day to commit the attack.”

When asked about an escape plan, Jameson replied “he was ready to die.”

________

The origins of global Jihad:

It was Max von Oppenheim going all the way back to just before WWI in 1914 who was responsible for creating global Jihad. The Kaiser was intrigued with Oppenheim’s knowledge of the Middle East, and so Oppenheim presented the Kaiser with the idea of “inciting Muslims into Jihad against the colonial powers”. Sort of like a “secret weapon” used by Germany written about in the Berlin-Baghdad Express.

The Sultan of the Ottoman empire then had his religious leaders through the grand Mufti issue a fatwa declaring a global Jihad to unite the Muslim world to throw off colonial rule. Jihad has always been present which has a powerful effect on these tribal groupings in the Muslim world. Still now over 100 years later the global Jihad (“secret weapon”) continues to be manufactured in the west as we saw with the FBI in this recent “Jihad attack” on Pier 39 in San Francisco.

Max (Freiherr) von Oppenheim (15 July 1860 in Cologne – 17 November 1946 in Landshut) was a German lawyer, diplomat, ancient historian, and archaeologist. He was a member of the Oppenheim banking dynasty. Abandoning his career in diplomacy, he discovered the site of Tell Halaf in 1899 and conducted excavations there in 1911-13 and again in 1929. Bringing many of his finds to Berlin, he exhibited them in a private museum. This was destroyed by Allied bombing in World War II. However, most of the findings were recently restored and have been exhibited again at Berlin and Bonn.

Oppenheim was a controversial figure before and during World War I because he was considered a spy by the French and British. He did in fact engage in anti-Allied propaganda, aimed at stirring up the Muslim populations of the Allied-controlled territories against their colonial masters.

Max Oppenheim was born on 15 July 1860 in Cologne as the son of Albert Oppenheim (de) and Pauline Engels. Albert Oppenheim, a member of the Jewish Oppenheim family of bankers had converted to Catholicism in 1858 to marry Catholic Pauline Engels, from an established Cologne merchant family. In 1867, Max’ grandfather, Simon, was awarded the title of Freiherr (Baron) in Austria-Hungary. As the title was also valid in Prussia, the family now styled itself “von Oppenheim”.

TRUMP GOOD AND BAD

by James Hufferd, Ph.D., Coordinator
911 Truth Grassroots Organizatio

--

There are famously two all-too-human superpowers in this world at this point: 1) the universally-recognized mighty United States, become the military and influence tool of the self-serving, grasping organized global elite, and 2) world public opinion, the potential basis for a much stronger power if it can ever be harnessed, jelled, and exerted in its own behalf.

Most people assume that world individual self-interest can’t be mobilized and directed into an all-conquering force to set the elite on its fat and technologically-super-enhanced ear. But, the other day, the UN delegates of the 95%+ of the world not directly controlled by the U.S. deep state or its powerful mascot, Israel, made it seem possible for the “deplorable” fully-human rest of the world to gloriously triumph by overwhelmingly rejecting the elite’s sanctification of Israel grinding the pre-established in the land Palestinians into the ground.

And according to French 9/11 scholar Thierry Meyasson, the Israelis, who have also of late seen their Middle Eastern military dreams of daddy Trump acquiring by force what they envision as a grossly expanded “Greater Israel” thwarted thus far, have instead purchased an enormous block of land from Argentina and Chile in Patagonia.

The stumbling block for Israel and a fully-compliant Trump? Superior Russian air power abetting target Syria, the first domino that was supposed to fall but remains secure. In fact, Israel is so worried about the combined forces of Syria, Iran, and Hesbolah attacking that Nenanyahu has forced an alliance with, of all unlikely Middle Eastern neighbors, Saudi Arabia. And suddenly, if the mighty U.S. intervenes, there’s now the likelihood of the engaged juggernaut Russian air power to back up the attackers, restore the Palestinians, and pull down the Zionist temple for good.

I have lustily, if guardedly, cheered Trump’s promised, electoral triumph over, and practiced opposition to the forces of elite globalism in favor (in some ways, at least) of the common man, his directing and obtaining resources for the same, and his blocking from America the onslaught of the same hordes of unsuited war refugees that have staggered and possibly destroyed Europe. So, do I also cheer his militarized support of Israeli brutality and unfairness and its inordinate influence over the gamut of U.S. policies? You bet your life, I don’t.

In fact, I am stumped by our energetic and, according to many, all too demonstrative president’s apparent blindness to the fact that the very Zionist entity embraced by his adult children is really the bête noire avatar of the globalists – the one-world government cultists – and the hyperactive U.S. offensive military he loves is their blunt-force homicidal weapon against uppity humanity.

Alike, the banksters, who surround him and occupy his cabinet chairs (on whose orders?), are their very control and throttle mechanism manipulated to suppress the aspirations of his common man and -woman rabid core of supporters and everybody else. Why can’t he see what so many others can? Some would say he doesn’t really care. But just maybe he’s under unconditional orders of those who’d love nothing more than to liquidate him and resume full control. Who knows? And, if that’s it, can he contrive to wriggle free? We, too, can dream, can’t we?

Israeli Attack On USS Liberty

Mass murder or tragic blunder?
by Martin Hanson

“Never before in the history of the US Navy has a Navy board of inquiry ignored the testimony of American eyewitnesses and taken, on faith, the word of their attackers” – Richard Kiepfer, USS Liberty survivor On June 8, 1967, at the height of the ‘six-day-war’, the American intelligence-gathering ship U.S.S. Liberty was almost sunk by Israeli air and naval forces while in international waters off the coast of Egypt and flying a large American flag. The attack lasted over an hour and was preceded by several hours of reconnaissance flights that circled the Liberty. One torpedo struck the Liberty, killing 34 sailors and wounding over 170. Survivors believe it was a deliberate attempt to sink the ship with all hands since, as survivor Lloyd Painter said years later, the life rafts were repeatedly machine gunned by the torpedo boats.

Despite the torpedo the Liberty did not sink, and the survivors would have been able to tell the tale had they not been forbidden to mention the attack to anyone, on pain of court marshal. The Liberty’s skipper, Commander William McGonagle was promoted to Captain and awarded the highest award for bravery, the Congressional Medal of Honor, but the presentation was made in secret. The gravestones of those killed gave no details of how they died. Afterwards the survivors were split up, no two men serving on the same ship.

The Israelis have always claimed that it was an error due to misidentification, but the surviving American eyewitnesses stated emphatically that this was impossible.

The naval Court of Inquiry was ordered by Admiral John McCain, and chaired by Rear Admiral Kidd, assisted by legal counsel Captain Ward Boston. They were given a week to conduct an inquiry that should have taken six months. They were expressly forbidden to interview Israeli military personnel, yet without such vital testimony they reported that the incident was a case of mistaken identity. Years later however, Ward Boston, a legal counsel in the inquiry, stated in a sworn affidavit that crucial testimony given to the inquiry had not been included in the final report, including that given by Lloyd Painter.

So disgusted were senior naval officers at the cover-up that a number of retired senior naval officers conducted their own inquiry. They were led by Admiral Thomas H. Moorer who, from 1970 to 1974 had been Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the highest-ranking military officer in the US armed forces.

Their report, in October 2003 (https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Moorer_Report) was totally different from that of the preceding official inquiry. A shortened version of their main conclusions is as follows: · The torpedo boat attack involved not only the firing of torpedoes, but the machine-gunning of Liberty's firefighters and stretcher-bearers as they struggled to save their ship and crew; the Israeli torpedo boats later returned to machine-gun at close range three of the Liberty's life rafts that had been lowered into the water by survivors to rescue the most seriously wounded;

· There is compelling evidence that Israel's attack was a deliberate attempt to destroy an American ship and kill her entire crew;

· Fearing conflict with Israel, the White House deliberately prevented the U.S. Navy from coming to the defense of USS Liberty by recalling Sixth Fleet military rescue support while the ship was under attack; · Surviving crewmembers were later threatened with "court-martial, imprisonment or worse" if they exposed the truth; and were abandoned by their own government;

· There had been an official cover-up without precedent in American naval history.

· That due to continuing pressure by the pro-Israel lobby in the United States, this attack remains the only serious naval incident that has never been thoroughly investigated by Congress; to this day, no surviving crewmember has been permitted to officially and publicly testify about the attack;

· A danger to national security exists whenever elected officials are willing to subordinate American interests to those of any foreign nation, and specifically are unwilling to challenge Israel's interests when they conflict with American interests; this policy, evidenced by the failure to defend USS Liberty and the subsequent official cover-up of the Israeli attack, endangers the safety of Americans and the security of the United States.

These navy top-brass were not alone in their contempt for the official inquiry. Among the many Washington insiders who were skeptical was the then Secretary of State Dean Rusk, who stated in his memoirs: “I was never satisfied with the Israeli explanation. Their sustained attack to disable and sink Liberty precluded an assault by accident or some trigger-happy local commander. Through diplomatic channels we refused to accept their explanations. I didn't believe them then, and I don't believe them to this day. The attack was outrageous." “The loss of liberty” and “USS Liberty: Dead in The Water” are two of numerous documentaries available on YouTube.

Populism Is A Problem Elitist Technocrats Won't Solve

Populism Is a Problem. Elitist Technocrats Aren’t the Solution.
The problem isn’t too much democracy — it’s too little.

BY SHERI BERMAN | DECEMBER 20, 2017, 4:10 PM
U.S. President Donald Trump and President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker at a G20 economic summit on July 8, 2017 in Hamburg, Germany.

U.S. President Donald Trump and President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker at a G20 economic summit on July 8, 2017 in Hamburg, Germany.

Democracy today seems to be in constant crisis. Democratic backsliding has occurred in countries from Venezuela to Poland, and autocratic leaders, including Hungary’s Viktor Orban, Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and Russia’s Vladimir Putin, proudly proclaim that the era of liberal democracy is over. Perhaps most worrying, even in the West where it has long been taken for granted, liberal democracy is under attack from populists, and, according to some scholars, it is no longer highly valued by many citizens.

In seeking to explain these troubling trends, most observers focus on the challenges currently facing democracy. They argue that globalization and rising automation have made life more insecure for the working and middle classes, privileged highly educated city dwellers over the less educated who live in rural areas, and made capitalism more of a zero-sum game. Alongside economic challenges, changing social norms and rising immigration — the percentage of foreign-born citizens is at an all-time high in many European countries and at levels last seen during the early 20th century in the United States — have left many citizens feeling uncomfortable and out of touch in their own neighborhoods.

But analyses that focus on only these challenges cannot explain the woes of an entire political system. Just as a healthy body fights off myriad viruses, so too do healthy political systems identify and respond to the challenges they faceJust as a healthy body fights off myriad viruses, so too do healthy political systems identify and respond to the challenges they face. Liberal democracies’ problems over the past years haven’t come merely or even primarily from the challenges they have faced but rather from a diminished capacity to recognize and respond to them. It is not just rapid economic and social changes that matter but the inability or unwillingness of national political actors and institutions to respond to those changes that has caused rising support for populists.

The real cause of Western democracies’ current travails is that many core political institutions have decayed dramatically over the past years — or ceded responsibility to unelected supranational bodies — hindering their ability to translate the demands of a broad range of their citizens into concrete action at home. Western democracies have, in short, become dramatically less democratic.

In 1968, the political scientist (and Foreign Policy co-founder) Samuel Huntington — who is today better known for coining the term “clash of civilizations” — wrote an influential book titled Political Order in Changing Societies. Huntington was motivated by a puzzle: Why were so many third-world countries (as they were then known) mired in political disorder? Huntington argued that their political problems stemmed from a disjuncture between the challenges these countries faced and the strength of their political institutions. As he put it, “The primary problem of politics is the lag in the development of political institutions behind social and economic change.” He went on to argue that as societies grew larger, more complex, and more diverse, political stability would increasingly “become dependent upon the workings of political institutions” capable of responding to the new demands emanating from society.

The same challenges that were easily handled in countries with strong and responsive political institutions — such as ensuring employment opportunities for increasingly educated citizens and providing avenues of political participation for newly mobilized social groups — caused political disorder and violence in countries lacking them. The absence of such institutions, Huntington argued, was at the root of the problems facing many Asian, African, and Latin American countries in the 1950s and 1960s: They were experiencing rapid social and economic change — urbanization, increases in literacy and education, industrialization, mass media expansion — increasing their citizens’ expectations and demands, but they lacked the political institutions capable of satisfying them.

Although Huntington wrote Political Order as a diagnosis of the problems facing the third world, he recognized that just as political institutions could develop, they could also decay, causing a political system to become less responsive and effective over time. This is precisely what has happened in Western democracies over the past decades. Many of their democratic institutions have atrophied, rendering them less able to respond to the needs and demands of average citizens rather than a small subset of them. The American political system has long had undemocratic institutions embedded in it, such as the Electoral College and the unrepresentative Senate. Without the Electoral College, there would be no President Donald Trump. And if Americans had an upper legislative chamber that more directly translated popular preferences into political outcomes than the Senate does, the more populous, liberal coasts would dominate politics at the national level, with immense consequences for policy.

But in recent years other political institutions have decayed, weakening traditional channels for citizen participation and influence in politics. Both the Democratic and Republican parties have declined organizationallyBoth the Democratic and Republican parties have declined organizationally; they have less capacity to organize voters and mobilize committed activists at the local level and less ability to transmit voter preferences to politicians and into policies. (This is particularly true of the Democratic Party, which has essentially disappeared organizationally from many parts of the country.) Partially for these reasons, both parties have experienced internal revolts. Beginning in 2009, Republicans faced the Tea Party rebellion, which helped set the stage for Trump’s populist takeover of the party in 2016. Since Trump’s election, the Democrats have experienced something similar with the rise of insurgent groups like Indivisible, whose ostensible goal is to overthrow the party “establishment” and generate candidates ostensibly more responsive to the people.

Owner of 175 companies, including restaurant chains and Tottenham Hotspur football club – whose fans call themselves the « Yid Army » - the very discreet billionaire Joe Lewis speculates on the exchange market in partnership with his friend George Soros.

In the 19th century, the British government were undecided as to where they should settle Israël – either in what is now Uganda, in Argentina or in Palestine. In fact, Argentina was at that time controlled by the United Kingdom and, on the initiative of French baron Maurice de Hirsch, had become a land of refuge for Jews who were fleeing the pogroms in central Europe.

In the 20th century, after the military coup d’Etat against democratically elected President General Juan Perón, a current of antisemitism developed within the armed forces. A brochure was distributed accusing the new State of Israël of preparing an invasion of Patagonia, the « Andinia Plan ».

It has become apparent today that even though the Argentinian extreme right had exaggerated the facts in the 1970’s, there was indeed a project for implantation (and not invasion) in Patagonia.

Everything changed with the Falklands War in 1982. At that time, the Argentinian military junta attempted to recuperate the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, which from their point of view had been occupied by the British for a century and a half. The UNO recognised the legitimacy of the Argentinian claim, but the Security Council condemned the use of force to recover these territories. The stakes are considerable, since the territorial waters of these archipelagos offer access to all the riches of the Antarctic continent.

At the end of this war, which cost more than a thousand lives (official British figures are largely understated), London imposed a particularly severe Peace Treaty on Buenos Aires - Argentinian armed forces are limited to their most simple expression. Above all, the control of their Southern and Antarctic air space is confiscated for the profit of the Royal Air Force, and they are obliged to inform the United Kingdom about all their operations.

In 1992 and 1994, two particularly devastating, murderous and mysterious attacks successively destroyed the Israëli embassy and the headquarters of the Israëli association AMIA. The first attack took place when the station chiefs of Israëli Intelligence had just left the building. The second occurred in the context of joint Egypt-Argentinian research for the development of Condor ballistic missiles. In the same period, the main Condor factory exploded, and the sons of Presidents Carlos Menem and Hafez el-Assad died accidentally. The various enquiries gave rise to a succession of manipulations.

After having blamed Syria, prosecutor Alberto Nisman turned on Iran, whom he accused of having ordered the two attacks, and Hezbollah, who he claimed had carried them out. The ex- Peronist President Cristina Kirchner was accused of having negotiated the end of the legal proceedings against Iran in exchange for advantageous oil prices. Prosecutor Nisman was found dead at his home, and President Kirchner was found guilty of high treason. However, last week, a coup de theâtre destroyed everything we though we knew – the United States FBI handed over DNA analyses which attest to the absence of the presumed terrorist among the victims, and the presence of a body which has never been identified. 25 years later, we know nothing more about these attacks.

In the 21st century, benefitting from the advantages offered them by the Falklands War Treaty, the United Kingdom and Israël are now setting up a new project Patagonia.

British billionaire Joe Lewis has acquired immense territories in the South of Argentina and even neighbouring Chile. His properties cover areas several times larger than the State of Israël. They are situated in Tierra del Fuego, at the extreme Southern point of the continent. In particular, they surround the Lago Escondido, which effectively denies access to the entire region, despite a legal injunction.

The billionaire has built a private airport with a two kilometre landing strip, in order to be able to receive civil and military aircraft.

Since the Falklands War, the Israëli army has been organising « holiday camps » (sic) in Patagonia for its soldiers. Between 8,000 and 10,000 of them now come every year to spend two weeks on Joe Lewis’ land.

While in the 1970’s, the Argentinian army noted the construction of 25,000 empty houses, which gave rise to the myth of the Andinia Plan, hundreds of thousands have been built today.

It is impossible to verify the state of the construction work, since these are private lands, and Google Earth has neutralised the satellite photographs of the area, just as it does with NATO’s military installations.

Neighbouring Chile has handed over a submarine base to Israël. Tunnels have been dug in order to survive the polar winter.

The Mapuche Indians who inhabit both Argentinian and Chilean Patagonia were surprised to learn that the Resistencia Ancestral Mapuche (RAM) had been reactivated in London. This is a mysterious organisation which fights for independence. First accused of being an old association recuperated by the Argentinian secret services, the RAM is today considered by the left as a legitimate secessionist movement, but by the Mapuche leaders as an initiative financed by George Soros.

On 15 November 2017, the Navy lost all contact with the submarine ARA San Juan, which was finally declared lost at sea. It was one of the TR 1700 class diesel-electric submarines which were the flagships of the reduced Argentinian army. The Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO) has announced that it has recorded an unusual acoustic phenomenon in the Atlantic, close to the area from which the San Juan sent its last signal. The government finally admitted that the submarine was on a non-specified « secret mission », of which London had been informed. The USA began a search, while the Russian Navy deployed a drone capable of exploring the ocean to a depth of 6,000 metres, but found nothing. The San Juan probably exploded. The Argentinian Press is convinced that the submarine had either collided with a mine, or was destroyed by an enemy torpedo.

It is impossible for the moment to determine if Israël is engaged in a programme for the exploitation of Antarctica, or if it is building a rear base in case of defeat in Palestine.
