Zionist twat gets to trash Christianity…how about some balance with a trashing of hannukah?
A former Auckland teacher posed as a God-fearing churchgoer but behind closed doors molested children while reading passages from the bible, a court has heard.
Stephen Gough – who can be named for the first time after name suppression lapsed – was jailed for three and a half years at Waitakere District Court yesterday after admitting nine sex charges.
The 79-year-old man, who propped himself up in the dock with the aid of a walking stick, committed “persistent, relentless and repeated” offences against three girls and a boy between 1976 and 1987.
But his heinous acts only came to light last year when victims came forward.
Police believe there could be other victims who have not come forward and are encouraging those people to contact them.
The Herald understands fresh charges against Gough will be considered if further victims are identified.
Sentencing Judge Kevin Glubb said Gough, a former intermediate school woodwork teacher was an active member of the church and gained people’s confidence by his standing in the community.
“It’s hard to imagine a more gross breach of trust,” he said.
Some of the most shocking revelations which emerged in court were that Gough would molest victims, aged between 3 and 16, while reading the bible.
The court also heard how the offender made a peep hole under a house so he could watch children in the shower.
Judge Glubb said the offending was carefully orchestrated and Gough “used [the children] as sexual toys”.
“This is a very sad day. It represents an appalling track record of invasive offending against very vulnerable young children,” he said.
“It’s a total disgrace.”
Gough’s lawyer Roger Chambers opposed an application for his client to be photographed but Crown prosecutor Evan McCaughan said three of the four victims wanted their tormentor’s image to be publicised.
One of the victims made their feelings known more explicitly as Gough was led away.
“Burn in hell you piece of s***,” a man said.
The judge acknowledged the impact on all those abused by the man.
“It’s widely recognised prolonged offending robs young children of their joy in life and their innocence. That is what you did. They all make it clear that your offending has had a huge debilitating effect on their lives and continues to affect them very significantly,” he said.
The court heard that by 1993 Gough had completed three programmes addressing his deviant sexual urges and now considered himself to be “fully cured of the terrible addiction”.
He received credit for those efforts, as well as for his age and guilty plea.
No minimum period of imprisonment was imposed.
One of Gough’s victims told the Herald his offending had ruined her life.
She said people around her knew what he was doing, but never intervened. She struggles with that daily.
“It was horrible. My mother knew this was going on, the neighbours knew, other relatives… no one ever did anything,” she said.
She also believed there would be more victims and was pleased his name suppression had lapsed so his crimes could be “put out there finally”.
“I have just about died five times in the last year. I’ve overdosed, I’m just so depressed, so pissed off with life – I’m just sick of it,” she said.
“I hate him. He did this to me from when I was a little girl… I just want what he did acknowledged.”
The victim said she was angry at Gough, whose “disgusting” offending had pushed her to drugs, alcohol and an eating disorder.
“I’ve been an alcohol and drug addict since forever. I had good jobs, I’ve been a good mum but what he did impacts on my life hugely.”
She said his guilty plea was “a relief”, but it didn’t take her pain away.
“Two months ago I tried to take my life… it was pretty bad, they thought I was going to die this time. It’s pretty hard. He has totally and completely ruined my life, I’m a complete mess. I drink to forget… I’ve been to rehab four times, I got sectioned last year because of my drinking. I’m so f***ing angry.”
She said Gough had apologised to her, but his words meant nothing.
“It wasn’t just the sexual abuse, he had me living in terror. I will never get over that.”
The victim encouraged anyone else who had been abused to come forward.
“Just set yourself free, tell someone. If you think it’s happening to someone else, do something,” she said.
She wanted to thank the police for making the process of bringing Gough to justice easier for her than she initially expected.
‘The police have been amazing. They have been so lovely to me.”
“What he did was not fair. He should be jailed for the rest of his life.”

What prompted this reaction from Israel’s first Prime Minister?
Ben-Gurion was enraged by a character in the novel, a convert to Christianity who asked why Jews need suffer the scourge of anti Semitism:
“In whose interests is this voluntary martyrdom? Dismiss this [Jewish] army which is forever fighting and being massacred, nobody knows for what?… Say to them: ‘That’s enough. Stop now. Don’t hold on to your identity. Don’t all get together in a crowd. Disperse. Be with all the rest.
Their national idea has forced the Jews to be a nation and nothing but a nation – and they have been chained to this deadening task all through the centuries when all the rest of the world was being delivered from it by a new force [Christianity] which had come out of their own midst….And they actually saw and heard it and let it go!
PASTERNAK – A CHRISTIAN AT HEART
Christ’s teaching that God is universal love (i.e. the Gospel of Love) is the antithesis of Judaism.
(Israel a powerful force in achieving the Illuminati Jewish mission)
What Pasternak and most Jews (and non-Jews) do not understand is that Judaism is not a religion. It’s a satanic cult based on Cabala. Its raison d’etre is world domination. Put simply, the Chosen People’s leadership believe their mission is to replace God, monopolize everything worth monopolizing, and redefine reality according to their perversions and self interest. Thanks to their control of credit and communication, and their network of Gentile traitors (“Freemasons,”) this goal is within sight.
Judaism’s secret tonic is the resistance ( i.e. “anti Semitism”) aroused by this hidden but very real agenda. Jews cannot eliminate anti Semitism until they recognize and abjure Judaism’s secret agenda.
Most Jews would scoff at the above explanation of Judaism but they don’t have another one that is credible. A friend described a Yom Kippur service last Saturday. The rabbi told the congregation that Judaism consisted of two elements: observance of Jewish ritual and “doing good.”
1.) Most Jews will tell you that Jewish ritual is largely empty and boring. Holidays are usually a tribal celebration. Passover commemorates the exodus from Egypt. Rosh ha Shonah (New Years) is based on some candles burning longer they should have – a sign of “Divine favor.” (Who hasn’t seen candles do this?) The “high holiday” Yom Kippur is supposed to be a “day of repentance.” But no repentance takes place. Instead the Kol Nidre prayer in Hebrew gives Jews permission to lie and cheat Gentiles for the upcoming year. (Most Jews don’t understand it.) Purim celebrates the genocide of “anti Semites.”
The reason so many Jews are “secular” and don’t believe in God, is because secularism is Judaism in disguise. Secularism is a mask for satanism – the rejection of God and consequently religion. That’s why religious people are denied their rights and God cannot be mentioned in “secular” societies.
Apart from the Ten Commandments, there is not much in Judaism by way of moral teachings. There is some worldly advice and exhortations to fear God, but nothing of the self-mortification (denial of earthly enticements) that you find in the Sermon on the Mount. Indeed, the Talmud confirms Arthur Koestler’s comment that Judaism “teaches Jews how to cheat God.”
2) “Doing good” usually means doing what is good for the Jews. No one would say what Israel did to Gaza last summer was “doing good” but few Jews have condemned it.
Author Grace Halsell gave an example of what “doing good” really means. When Halsell had written books about the plight of Native Americans, African Americans, and undocumented Mexican workers, she was a great favorite of New York Times matriarch Iphigene Ochs Sulzberger. All these causes promoted multiculturalism, which Organized Jewry perceives as beneficial.
When Halsell next wrote a powerful book describing the Palestinian plight, she incurred Mrs. Suzberger’s displeasure and was quickly dropped by the Times. Halsell writes: “I had little concept that from being buoyed so high I could be dropped so suddenly when I discovered–from her point of view–the ‘wrong’ underdog.”
Jews eventually must realize they are not engaged in some noble enterprise for which they are unjustly resented. Rather, many Jews (and Masons) are being used to dehumanize and enslave the human race. This is why David Ben Gurion hated Boris Pasternak. He wanted Jews to serve as cannon fodder in this satanic war against God and man. Those who converted or assimilated were beyond his reach. I’m with Pasternak. The sooner Jews assimilate, the better.
Everything has its opposite – left and right, happy and sad, love and hate, inside and outside…
In other words, the scientists have observed a particle that is its own antiparticle.
Matter is a mirror image of antimatter.
There is a belief that it is our minds that create matter.
’0′ can become something.
How might things come into existence?
A mathematical equation shows us how it may work.
0 = +X -X
+X is matter (particles)
-X is anti-matter (anti-particles)
Think of the TAOIST idea of YIN and YANG.
Let us say that YIN represents mainly minus numbers and YANG represents mainly the plus numbers.
The Buddhists say that you cannot have Nirvana without Samsara.
A good game of golf involves a LITTLE bit of Nirvana and a LITTLE bit of Samsara?

Let’s look at Taoism.
1. The Force
Consider Luke Skywalker and how Obi-wan Kenobi taught him about “the Force”.
Luke had to avoid being distracted by things like fear and anger.
On one occasion, Luke was trying, without success, to avoid laser blasts from a ‘remote’.
When Obi-wan Kenobi placed a helmet on Luke’s head so he couldn’t be distracted, he easily deflected the remote’s laser blasts.
The idea is that when you are aware of the ‘Tao’ and feel ‘the force’, you can flow with it, and the right action appears for itself, spontaneously.
The economy does not work when things are out of balance.
Some Taoists and Christians and others believe that bliss can be achieved when:
1. One is compassionate
2. One is moderate (Avoid large numbers?)
3. One is humble (Avoid large numbers?)
4. Everything is in balance (+ X – X rather than +X – 1000X?)
5. One is in tune with the Holy Spirit or the Tao or whatever one wants to call it. One goes with the flow.
6. One avoids the use of force; one avoids pitting one’s will against the universe.
The Christians talk about God’s spirit.
The Taoists talk about the Tao being a force that flows through everything.
When the Tao is in balance one can be happy. (+ X – X rather than +X – 1000X?)
There is Yin and there is Yang (just as there is black and white, up and down, male and female).
‘The Tao surrounds everyone and one must listen to find enlightenment.’
True Taoism does not get bogged down with theology. “The Tao that can be named is not the true Tao.”
Taoists love their enemies. “I am good to the man who is good to me, likewise, I am also good to the bad man.”
The USA’s Phoenix programme (left) involved torturing and killing civilians. The USA’s ISIS force is also going to extremes. www.thesleuthjournal.com
Don’t force yourself or others to be compassionate. Be spontaneous.
Genuine love is spontaneous love.
The USA is out of balance. www.youtube.com
“The Master does not see evil as a force to resist, but simply as an opaqueness, a state of self-absorption that is in disharmony with the universal process, so that, as with a dirty window, the light can’t shine through.
“The Tao regulates natural processes and nourishes balance in the Universe.
5. Henry C K Liu wrote in the Asia Times about Taoism.
Where does evil come from?
There can be no ‘good’ without ‘evil’.
“Controlled quantities of the bad can be good.
“To employ poison to attack poison is a Taoist principle.”
Americans carrying out torture in Vietnam.
We should avoid producing unintended consequences.
“Not taking premature or unnecessary actions keeps all of one’s options open, so that the most appropriate action remains available.
“To follow the dao (path) of life is to go with the natural flow of life and to avoid going against it.
“The ethical theories of Taoism lean toward passive resistance, believing that evil, by definition, will ultimately destroy even itself without undue interference.
“Yet it would be a mistake to regard Taoism as fatalistic and pessimistic, instead of the ultimate sophistication in optimism that it is.
“Only by not applying effort can one achieve that state in which nothing is not attainable effortlessly.
“A little ambition is a good thing. Total elimination, even of undesirables, is an extreme solution, and it is therefore self-defeating.
“Life is a prison from which one can escape only if one does not try to escape. It is the desire to escape that makes a place a prison, and the desire to return that makes it a home. Home is not where one is, it is where one wants to return.”
The following comes from: http://www.jadedragon.com/archives/tao_heal/teach01.html
From Taoism: happiness comes from helping others; wealth comes from giving to others.
From Buddhism: “Set your heart on doing good. Do it over and over again, and you will be filled with joy.”
From Islam: “There is a reward for your treatment of every living thing.” Muhammad also said: “None of you is a believer until you like for others what you like for yourself.”
From Christianity: “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.”

Left, how our “leaders” look to their Illuminati overlords.
We revisit “The Col House Report” 1919 which
demonstrates that almost 100 years ago,
the United States already was a colony of the “Crown”
i.e. the Masonic Jewish banking cartel headquartered in London.
As Col. House outlines the plot to return the US to full “British” control, under the guise of the League of Nations,
he describes a “system of thought control” that today is stronger than ever.
By Henry Makow Ph.D.
Hardly a day goes by without a new article blaming the “United States” or “Israel” for the woes of the world.
The power of these countries is analogous to how Caroll Quigley describes the power of Communist Jews in the FDR era.
He wrote, “the power that these energetic left-wingers exercised was never their own power or Communist power but was ultimately the power of the international financial coterie.” (Tragedy and Hope, p.954)
In my review of “The Red Dragon” in 2007, I presented the hypothesis that the major imperial power in the world is the world central banking cartel. Because it creates money out of nothing, it wants to buy everything of real value that it can. Hiding behind the mask of British, American, French or Japanese imperialism, or Nazism, Zionism, Communism, etc. essentially the same people — Illuminati Jewish bankers and their Freemason collaborators–instigate and finance all wars, and profit from them, at the expense of humanity.
The underlying agenda expressed the The Protocols of Zion “to undermine all collective forces not our own” by which they mean all nations, races, religions and family. They intend to sow chaos until an exasperated and exhausted humanity succumbs to their world “super government.”
According to Red Dragon author L.B. Woolfolk, this ethnic-Jewish “Money Power,” operating through the Bank of England and countless corporate fronts, tied up most of the world’s wealth as early as 1864.
They are colonizing the world, including the so-called imperialist powers. They created Israel not as a “Jewish homeland” but as the seat of their Masonic world government. They instigated the holocaust to force Jews to support Israel. The holocaust masked the true character of WWII: an attack on Christian European civilization by the Sabbatean Frankist satanic sect (the Illuminati.) They owned I.G. Farben, the backbone of the Nazi war machine, which used Jewish slave labor at Auschwitz.
We have not been invaded by a foreign army but by foreign capital. A damning 1919 report by Col. Edward House indicates the US has been a financial colony of “The Crown” for a long time.
Col. Edward Mandell House (1858-1938) was the Rothschild agent who secretly directed U.S. affairs during the Woodrow Wilson administration. Col. House was known as Wilson’s friend and “alter ego.” The report is addressed to British Prime Minister David Lloyd George, whose career was made as a lawyer for the World Zionist Organization.
Rep. Jacob Thorkelson (1876-1945) introduced The House Report to Congress in Oct.1939 and published it in the Congressional Record (Oct. 13 1939, pp.598-604). Attempts to delete it were thwarted. The complete text is available on line.
The report details Col. House’s progress in preparing “for the peaceful return of the American colonies to the dominion of the Crown.”
“Crown” refers to the owners of the Bank of England. Their identities are an official secret. According to E.C. Knuth, the “international financial oligarchy uses the allegoric ‘Crown’ as its symbol of power and has its headquarter in the ancient city of London…the giant Bank of England, a privately owned institution… is not subject to regulation by the British parliament and is in effect a sovereign world power.” (The Empire of the City, p. 59)
Col. House continues: The “peaceful return of the American colonies” can only be brought about with “the consent of the dominant group of the controlling clans.”
Col. House relates how these classes are being taught to accept “British” leadership. He details how the universities and press are staffed by “British-born” or Canadians.
“Through the Red Cross, the Scout movement, the YMCA, the church, and other humane, religious, and quasi religious organizations, we have created an atmosphere of international effort which strengthens the idea of unity of the English speaking world.”
The Overseas Clubs, service clubs, and war charities “enable us to pervade all sections and classes of the country.”
We “hold all American newspapers as isolated from the non-American world as if they had been in another planet instead of another hemisphere. The realization of this by the Associated Press and the other universal news gatherers, except Hearst, was most helpful in bringing only our point of view to the papers they served.”
He boasts that the United States “while still maintaining an outward show of independence” is identical with other colonies in its relationship to the Crown. “Has not President Wilson cancelled the big Navy program and dutifully conceded to us the command of the seas?”
He boasts that “the Anglo American alliance” has become “the unchallenged financiers of the world.”
He congratulates “our fiscal agents Messrs Pierpont Morgan & Company” for “putting this country into the war.” They exert “widespread influence on newspaper policy” through advertising and lent $200,000,000 to Japan to build a fleet to compete with America (making the U.S still more dependent on England.)
Col. House boasts that the “Crown” used money lent by the U.S. government for war purposes to buy up oil fields in California, Mexico and Latin America.
“The war has made us custodians of the greater part of the world’s raw materials… [We] now largely control the oil fields of the world and thereby the world’s transportation and industry.”
THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS RUSE
The pressing issue now is to “transfer its dangerous sovereignty from this colony to the custody of the Crown. We must, in short, now bring America within the Empire.”
The first step was Wilson’s plan for the League of Nations “which we prepared for him.”
“The plain people of this country are inveterate and incurable hero worshipers,” Col. House explains. They easily can be manipulated by a man with a slogan that expresses their “undefined aspirations.”
Afterwards, they will trust the sloganeer no matter what he does. Wilson has gained this trust and this accounts for “his exceptional usefulness to us.”
“Any abrupt change might startle the ignorant American masses and rouse them to action against it. And us. Our best policy therefore would be to appoint President Wilson the first president of the League… he will be able to satisfy [Americans] that far from surrendering their independence to the League, they are actually extending their sovereignty by it…”
(President Wilson and his “handler” Edward House)
Col. House goes into great detail about how Wilson must be massaged and manipulated. Many people think someone else wrote this Report but only Edward Mandell House knew Wilson this well.
For example he says Wilson “is easily slighted and remarkably vindictive.” The new British ambassador should be a “Wilson worshipper” and “a gentleman-in-waiting to the President.” He lists the gifts Wilson already has been given.
“OUR ENTIRE SYSTEM OF THOUGHT CONTROL” IS AT WORK
Col. House suggests staging the first session of the League of Nations in Washington.
“This will convince these simple people that they are the League and its power resides in them.”
He recommends a “series of spectacles by which the mob may be diverted from any attempt to think too much of matters beyond their province.”
“While awaiting these diversions for the vulgar, we are incessantly instructing them in the wonders of the league. Its praises are thundered by our press, decreed by our college presidents, and professed by our professors. Our authors, writers and lecturers are analyzing its selected virtues… we have enlisted 8000 propagandists for the League. We have organized international and national synods, committees, conferences, convocations, conventions, councils…to herald the birth of the League as the dawn of universal peace.”
“Agriculturalists, bankers, brokers, accountants, chemists, and all other functional groups capable of exerting organized professional, business, financial or social pressure are meeting to endorse the League in the name of peace, progress and prosperity…Our film concerns are preparing an epoch-making picture…”
“In short, our entire system of thought control is working ceaselessly, tirelessly, ruthlessly, to ensure the adoption of the League. And it will be adopted, for business wants peace, the righteous cannot resist a covenant, and the politicians, after shadow boxing for patronage purposes, will yield valiantly lest the fate of the wanton and wilful pursue them.”
Thanks to the valiant opposition of Republican Senators, the United States rejected the Peace Treaty and with it the League of Nations Nov. 19,1919. The plot was temporarily foiled.
The New World Order is an extension of the imperialism of the “Crown”, a clique of Jewish bankers and their Gentile accomplices devoted to “absorbing the wealth of the world” (in Cecil Rhodes words) and enslaving the human race.
We are being colonized by this financial power. The bogus “War of Terror” obviously is directed against us. It is the naked fist of this imperialism. Our jobs and resources are exported. Illegal aliens are imported to divide our political culture and dilute our job market. The education system is used for mass indoctrination. News is controlled. Entertainment is filled with trivia, the occult, violence and pornography. Obviously, our masters wish to arrest our development.
In every colonial situation, the political and cultural elite consists of people who serve the occupying power. Thus, let’s judge people not by their race, but by the service they perform for the invisible invader. And let’s not confuse them with the real imperialist “Money Power.”
The sooner we see ourselves as colonized, the sooner we can declare our independence.
[The following comes from Geo. W. Armstrong's THE ZIONISTS (1950). I have looked in the Congressional Record and can confirm the contention that it was submitted by Congressman Thorkelson but did not make it into the bound volume. Also, I have found several discussions in the Record where at least one Texas House member objected because it was not favorable to Col. House. Therefore, it is either: 1) a hoax, 2) a created summary of what might have been written by a British agent, or 3) is a genuine expose of the true British plan. For me it forms an insightful basis for additional research. The names mentioned include: Nicholas Murray Butler (1862-1947) (President, Columbia University, 1902-1945, President, CEIP, 1925-1945, etc.), Raymond Blaine Fosdick (1883-1972) (BB/CFR21) (President of the General Education Board, 1936-1948, Undersecretary-General, League of Nations, 1919-1920, etc.), Samuel Gompers, Franklin Lane and W. B. Wilson. The date is interesting since it is within a couple of weeks of the Majestic Hotel meeting in Paris where the British and American delegates met to fashion what became the RIIA and the CFR. From the content itself Lord Northcliffe seems not to have been the author. I have not yet found the promised later book].
The British Secret Service Report No. 1919, called the “Col. E. M. House letter,” contains an official and authentic report of the First World War, the agency that brought it about and the purpose of it. This report in its entirety is highly interesting but the discussion here will be limited to “Imperial Unity,” J P. Morgan & Company, British Duplicity, and the League of Nations.
This report, or letter, was presented to the House of Representatives by Congressman Thorkelson of Montana, and is published in the Congressional Record of October 13, 1919, p. 598-604 inclusive. Its authenticity was discussed by members of the House and an effort was made to strike it from the Record, which failed. See Congressional Record, October 11, 1939, p.714 et seq.; also of September 9, 1940, p.17835; and September 11, 1940, p.18311.
The letter or report is not published in the bound volumes of the Congressional Record of October 11, 1939, or the appendix of that date. Evidently some interested person prevented its publication, despite the refusal of the House of Representatives to strike it from the Record. The text as here set forth can be easily verified by reference to an original unbound copy of the Congressional Record of October 11 1939. It will be published in full in the next edition of this booklet.
It was called the “Col. E. M. House letter,” but it is not a letter. It is an official report made by an important officer of the British Secret Service, on stationery of the British Consulate. It reveals its official character and its verity upon its face.
No minor official would dare write such a letter to the British Prime Minister, or dare discuss the important subjects contained in it; except in the line of duty. Moreover, it was written by a man who KNEW and whose duty it was to know. It was not written by Col. E. M. House. This name was merely an adopted name; a nom de plume. It is the custom of secret agents to disguise themselves under a number or an assumed name. The letter is known as the British Secret Service Report No.1919. Sec Congressional Record, October 13. 1939, p.714.
It discloses that it was probably written by Lord Northcliffe, who was at that time the head of the British Propaganda Department in enemy countries. He sustained toward Lloyd George the same intimate relationship that once existed between Woodrow Wilson and Colonel House, and this fact may explain the name he assumed.
This document should be considered in connection with the drive by the Fair Dealers, the press, the radio. and the uplifters, for the Atlantic Pact, “Union Now,” “Federal Union, Inc.,” etc., for it will enable us to determine the true meaning of it all.
The immensely wealthy private bank of N. M. Rothschild & Son, and the Zionists, controlled the British Empire then as well as now. Then they controlled the Bank of England, the press, the railroads. and the industries with minor exceptions. Lord Northcliffe was the publisher of the Daily Mail and other papers.
The report follows:
New York City
June 10, 1919
“The Right Honorable David Lloyd George,
I was highly honored by your personal letter of May 24 last (written same week as Paris meeting), and wish to thank you for the cordial expression of approval of my work which it contained. You were very good enough to require from me a frank and confidential account of the campaign conducted under my direction in this country, together with such suggestions as might further help to lead it speedily to a successful conclusion. As the campaign had been under way for a considerable time before you were called to direct the destinies of England, I shall review it from its commencement, and, emboldened by your sanction, I shall freely make whatever suggestions seem to me good.
From the moment of my arrival here, it was evident to me that such an Anglo-American alliance as would ultimately result in the peaceful return of the American Colonies to the dominion of the Crown could be brought about only with the consent of the dominant group of the controlling clans.
For those who can afford the universities, we are, as I have already mentioned, plentifully supplying British-born or trained professors, lecturers, and presidents. A Canadian-born admiral now heads the United States Naval College. We are arranging for a greater interchange of professors between the two countries. The student interchange could be much improved. The Rhodes scholarships are inadequate in number. I would suggest that the Carnegie trustees be approached to extend to American students the benefits of the scheme by which Scottish students are subsidised at Scottish universities. If necessary, a grant from the treasury should be obtained for this excellent work, which however, should remain for the present — at least outwardly — private enterprise…
Through the Red Cross, the Scout movement, the YMC, the church, and other humane, religious, and quasi-religious organizations, we have created an atmosphere of international effort which strengthens the idea of unity of the English-speaking world. In the co-ordination of this work, Mr. Raymond Fosdick, formerly of the Rockefeller Foundation, has been especially conspicuous. I would also like to mention President Nicholas Murray Butler of Columbia University, who has eloquently advocated this form of internationalism and carefully emphasize its distinction from the false internationalism which is infecting the proletariat.
The Overseas Club in this country now contains nearly hundred thousand pledged members with a Journal of their own. Our thanks are due to Lord St. George’s, St. David’s, St. Andrew’s, and Pilgrim Clubs, together with the Daughters of the Empire. the Prince of Wales Fund, and the other association and guilds connected with our multitudinous war charities enable us to pervade all sections and classes of the country, and provide us with a force of empire builders whose loyalty an services are both invaluable to us and highly appreciated by the native colonists.
The censorship, together with our monopoly of cables and our passport control of passengers, enables us to hold all American newspapers as isolated from the non-American world as if they had been in another planet instead of in another hemisphere The realization of this by the Associated Press and the other universal news gatherers — except Hearst — was most helpful in bringing only our point of view to the papers they served.
British-born editors and reporters now create imperial sentiment in most American newspapers. As their identity and origins are not usually known, they can talk and write for us as Americans to Americans.
Below that level, imperial unity cannot be securely established upon the debris of the Constitution here. We will not passively permit this unity to be now menaced when it is all but perfect. Has not America, while still maintaining an outward show of independence, yielded to our wishes in the Panama Canal tolls and Canadian fisheries’ disputes, as was fitting and filial? Was not America happy to fight our war in Europe? Was not America, like Canada, willing not only to pay her own war expenses but also to loan us money for ours? Was not America, like Canada, content to seek nothing in return for her war duty, so long as the motherland was completely indemnified in Egypt and the rest of Africa, in Persia, Mesopotamia, Syria, and elsewhere? Was not America as proud to be honored by knighthood and lesser titulary distinctions, as Canada was, or, rather, more proud?
Has not President Wilson cancelled the big Navy program and dutifully conceded to us the command of the seas, confident that we shall defend America against all future foes that may threaten our supremacy, just as we defended America and Canada against Germany? In matters lingual, legal and financial, fiscal, commercial, social evangelical, administrative, martial, naval, educational — are not in all these matters the established relations of America to England, in kind — if not precisely in degree — identical with the relations of the other colonies and dominions to the Crown? Indeed, I might justifiably sustain the thesis that so-distant American Republic is now more happily and more closely bound to the Empire than are, for example, the ungrateful and insolent colonies which lately were the Boer Republics.
As long as President Wilson, with our Canadian-born Secretary of the Interior, Mr. Franklin Lane, with our Scotch-born Secretary of Labor, Mr. W. B. Wilson, and with our London-born Mr. Samuel Gompers, — now controls the administration, imperial unity will daily grow more intimate and more perfect. But I regret to inform you that our committee on American Elections has reported (Appendix 38) that no matter how lavishly we finance the next election, the Wilson administration will pass, and with it, perchance, that absolute administrative control over the Legislature, which has meant so much to us. Willful, wanton, and wicked men will unite in the next election with labor and those industrialists whose profit-patriotism ratio has been allowed to fall below the threshold of loyalty to imperial unity. These combined forces of disorder will seek to elect a legislature which will attempt to make the administration responsible to it, instead of to us and our auxiliaries, and will strive to rend the bonds which bind this colony to the motherland, for the sole, selfish, and seditious purpose of erecting a separate, national, economic unit independent of us — and even perhaps, competing with us. We must, therefore, hasten to remove from this legislature, with the aid of our supporters here, such of its powers as could be used against imperial unity.
J. P. MORGAN & CO. ARE BRITISH AGENTS
In the financial world the Anglo-American alliance is a well-established fact. And as the consortium for China, and the security company for Mexico show, our brokers and their aids have become the unchallenged financiers of the world. We have been particularly fortunate in our fiscal agents here, Messrs Pierpont Morgan & Company. The commissions they charged, both as our brokers and purchasing agents no doubt were high enough to warrant their summary treatment at the hands of Mr. Balfour during his visit here. But they advantageously placed our many bond issues and every American holder of these bonds having now a stake in the Empire is a defender of its integrity and a potential supporter of its extension over here. Their services in putting this country into the war have not been altruistic, but they were nonetheless effective. They contributed liberally to our Americanization campaign. They ousted Miss Boardman, and through Messrs. Taft and H. P. Davidson they nationalized and directed the American Red Cross, and then internationalized it under the direction of Mr. H. P. Davison Through Mr. Thomas Lamont they purchased Harpers Magazine and the New York Evening Post. Through advertisers they control, they have exerted widespread influence on newspaper policy. Messrs. Lamont and Davidson gave you valuable aid at the peace conference. They loaned $200,000,000 to Japan that our ally might build a fleet to compete with America on the Pacific carrying routes. Their attempts to retain for us control of the international mercantile marine are well known to you. And I would he amiss if I did not remind you that they relieved the government of considerable embarrassment by pensioning worthily the widow of our late Ambassador Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, at a time when the antagonism of Lord Northcliffe made it impossible for us officially to do so. As the greater part of their capital is invested within the Empire. the Government of His Majesty will doubtless have opportunity to appreciate the value of the services of Messrs. Pierpont Morgan & Company.
Through our fiscal agents here and our aids who act for other Allied countries, as Sir Clifford Sifton acts for Rumania, we have become the world’s purchasers. Moreover, the war has made us the custodian of the greater part of the world’s raw materials. With moneys lent to us by the American Government for war purposes, we have. acting through quasi-American companies by the aid of Mr. Connor Guthrie, obtained control of the large oil fields in California and in Costa Rica. And through the nationalization of His Majesty’s Government of the Cowdray, Pearson, and Royal Dutch Shell interests in Mexico, we having become masters of the Mexican, Canadian, Rumanian, Armenian. Persian, and lessor oil fields, now largely control the oil fields of the world and thereby the world’s transportation and industry. We have not yet succeeded in controlling the pipe lines owned by the Standard Oil Company, and its subsidiaries, for those companies have long been established. But, although uncontrolled companies may continue to get their oil to the seaboard, the proposed system of preferential treatment at our universal oiling stations for ships supplied at the port of departures with British oil (Appendix 37) will prevent the use of any oil but ours on the high seas.
This control would enable us to exert such pressure as would make American industrial interests amenable to His Majesty’s pleasure. But it would be unwise to make disciplinary use of our fuel power before we secure remission of our $4,000,000,000 debt. Otherwise, the American industrial interests might retaliate by forcing the United States Government to exact from us the agreed interest, to maintain tariff barriers against our merchandise, and to withdraw support from the rate of exchange. Which make our labor and resources for years pay tribute to this country an unnatural, unfilial, and unthinkable proceeding. We are conducting a vigorous campaign for the cancellation of this war debt, on the grounds (a) that we fought America’s fight for her for 2 years, while she was prospering in cowardice and (b) that at least the material burdens should be distributed justly, if the world is to be made safe for democracy. . Synchronously with this agitation for the remission of our debt, we are agitating for further loans of American money to rebuild our markets in Europe. There is no possibility of these two agitations endangering their mutual success, for we have repeatedly proved beyond question that the American mind cannot synchronously fix and correlate facts, with two cognate items on the statements to be judged each on its merits. Hence, we are able in a cloud of candor to state the merit of the loan — viz, that unless the money be lent to us we cannot pay the interest on it. in these agitations we are receiving valuable, if not wholly disinterested, aid from our financial auxiliaries and fiscal agents (J. P. Morgan & Co.)
In Mexico our friends made a tentative adventure with the gallant Blanquet, but it miscarried, perhaps owing to a slight misunderstanding between the bond interests and the industrial interests. However, we are quietly continuing our work in Mexico until the United States Government shall be put in a position to take it over. An American war with Mexico would cost us nothing; it would satisfy certain American industrial interests; it would guarantee out title to the Mexican oil fields; it would humble, by impoverishing, this purse-proud people; it would give us an opportunity to show the American that he isolated in the world needs our protection against our ally, Japan; and while America was busy warring we would enjoy a clear field in the European, African, and Asiatic trade, together with the monopoly of the markets of a South America hostile to the Monroe Doctrinaries of democracy. For these reasons our press is fully reporting Mexican outrages, but a strange apathy seems to have fallen on the people, an apathy from which only border raids or special atrocities will arouse them. . .
LEAGUE OF NATIONS
In other words, we must quickly act to transfer its dangerous sovereignty from this colony to the custody of the Crown. We must, in short, now bring America with in the Empire. God helping us, we can do no other. The first visible step in this direction has been taken; President Wilson has accepted and sponsored the plan for a League of Nations which we prepared for him. We have wrapped this plan in the peace treaty so that the world must accept from us the League or a continuance of the war. The League is in substance the Empire with America admitted on the same basis as our other colonies.
The effectiveness of the League will depend upon the power with which it can be endowed, and that will hinge upon the skill with which the cardinal functions of the American legislature are transferred to the executive Council of the League. Any abrupt change may startle the ignorant American masses and rouse them to action against it. And us. Our best policy, therefore, would be to appoint President Wilson first president of the League. When the fourteen points seemed to our Government twice seven daily sins, I analyzed with care his diverse and numerous notes and discourses and divided them into their two parts: One, the Wilson creed, “I believe in open covenants and in the freedom of the seas,” etc.; and two, the Wilson commandments, “Might shall not prevail over right, the strong shall not oppress the weak,” etc. From the “too proud to fight” and “he kept us out of war” episodes, I ventured to deduce (September 29, 1918, Appendix 36) that he would at the appropriate moment oblige us by transferring the “not” from his commandments to his creed without as much as a “may I not,” and in such a way that his people will be none the wiser.
The plain people of this country are inveterate and incurable hero worshipers. They are, however, sincere in sentiment; and for a hero to become established in the public shrine, he must first succeed in getting his name associated with the phrases and slogans that seem to reflect the undefined aspirations of the average inhabitant. When this has been accomplished the allegiance is at once transferred from the sentiment to the sentimentalist, from the ideal to the maker of the longed-for phrase. No one understands this peculiarity of the native behavior better than Mr. Wilson, which accounts largely for his exceptional usefulness to us. He knows that Americans will not scrutinise any performance too closely, provided their faith in the performer has been adequately established. Mr. Wilson has since made the transfer amid American acclamation. In the same way he will now be able to satisfy them that far from surrendering their independence to the League they are actually extending their sovereignty by it. He alone can satisfy them on this. He alone can father an anti-Bolshevik act which judicially interpreted — will enable appropriate punitive measures to be applied to any American who may be unwise enough to assert that America must again declare her independence. And he alone, therefore, is qualified to act for us as first president of the League.
I confess I am a little uneasy lest in the exigencies of diplomatic combat, Mr. Wilson may not have found the joy he anticipated from matching his wits against the best brains of Europe. He is easily slighted and remarkably vindictive. It is the highest degree desirable that any traces of resentment his mind may be harboring against us should be radically removed before he returns. I would, therefore, suggest that the work of adulation planned in Appendix 32 should be instructed to consult the inventories I have prepared (appendixes 45-83), which show that he is now surfeited with diamond stomachers, brooches, and bracelets, Gobelin tapestries, mosaics, and vases, gold caskets, and plates.
The program we arranged for his visit to England (appendix 33) including a royal reception at Buckingham Palace, with which the President was well pleased. The fruitful visit of the President to the King should be returned as early as possible. I would suggest that as soon as the President is settled once more in the White House, the visit should be returned by His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales, who would be an admirable representative of His Royal Sire, and would satisfy President Wilson’s sense of fitness. It is perhaps unfortunate that there is not a Presidential daughter of the Prince’s age, for such a union would have greatly advanced our purpose not only with the American people, but also with a President who feels that lese majeste should be punishable with 20 years’ imprisonment, and who acts as if he considered his son-in-law, Mr. McAdoo, as his heir apparent.
PRESIDENT WILSON’S PECULIARITIES
Too great attention cannot be given at this time to the Presidential peculiarities, for his devotion to our purpose will depend upon our ability to pander to them. I would suggest that the new ambassador to Washington should be chosen only after the most careful thought. He should not be too clever, lest Mr. Wilson shun him. He should be able to evince hilarity at the most venerable jest, no matter how often he may have to suffer it. This qualification is vitally important whether Mr. Wilson’s “humor” is merely assumed to perpetuate the “human” tradition established for Presidents by Lincoln, or whether it is studied descent from Jovelike isolation to Jovelike jest. The ambassador should be a Wilson worshiper. I enclose (appendix 34) resumes of the methods of worship practiced by various members of his inner circle. The appointee would do well to familiarize himself with them, and my services are at his disposal should be desire more extended information on the method of worship he selects. He should of course be a commoner, that we may not lose democratic favor — preferably a professor — and sufficiently subsidized to be able to entertain regally. If a list were submitted to Mr. Wilson he might be prepared to indicate all of whom he did not approve, and the one against whom he expressed no prejudices should be appointed. The pressing need of our embassy at Washington is not so much an ambassador as a gentleman in waiting to the President.
I would suggest that his powers as President of the League of Nations be left undefined for the present. He may be trusted to assume what power he can and to use it in the interests of the Crown.
A grant of a privy purse of $100,000,000 would prove most acceptable to him and would be useful for private espionage, private wars, Siberian railroads, etc. His appointment should be for life, and you might definitely promise him that any instructions he may care to convey concerning his successor will receive the most careful attention of His Majesty’s Government.
Nevertheless, it would be well quickly to reinforce him in the presidency of the League of Nations by staging the first session of the League in Washington. This will convince these simple people that they are the League and its power resides in them. Their pride in this power should be exalted. Perhaps you, yourself, might condescend to visit this country. Or, if that be impracticable, you might send such noble statesmen, and stately noblemen, as will suffice to make of the first League session a spectacle of unsurpassed brilliance. Indeed, it would be well to commence at an early date a series of spectacles by which the mob may be diverted from any attempt to think too much of matters beyond their province. The success of the Joffre, Vivianti Balfour, and other missions in amusing the people while the country was quietly put into the war shows that similar missions would likewise amuse the people — while the country was quietly put into the League. I would suggest that missions of thanksgiving to America be organized, and that His Majesty the King of the Belgians, Cardinal Mercier, Field Marshal Foch, Venizelos, and an eminent Italian or two be sent seriatim.
While awaiting these diversions for the vulgar, we are incessantly instructing them in the wonders of the League. Its praises are thundered by our press, decreed by our college presidents, and professed by our professors. Our authors, writers. and lecturers are analyzing its selected virtues for whomsoever will read or listen. As will be seen from appendix 39, circulars issued by the League of Nations committee, we have enlisted 8,000 pulpiteers or propagandists for the League. We have organized international and national synods, consistories, committees, conferences, convocations, conventions, councils, congresses, and assemblies, as well as their State, municipal, and district equivalents, to herald the birth of the League as the dawn of universal peace. A special Sunday will be observed as League Sunday in all churches. In this connection, may I remark that the appointment of Mr. Raymond Fosdick to the Secretariat of the League, has pleased not only the Rockefeller interests but also the less disingenuous uplifters, for it stamps the League as an endowed organization for promiscuous uplifting, under the triple crown of religion, respectability, and finance. Agriculturalists, bankers, brokers, chartered accounts, chemists, and all other functional groups capable of exerting organized professional, business, financial, or social pressure are meeting to endorse the League in the name of peace, progress, and prosperity.
The World’s Peace Foundation has issued for us a series of League of Nations pamphlets, which, with our other literature, tax the mails to the limit of their capacity. Our film concerns are preparing an epoch-making picture entitled “The League of Nations.” In brief, our entire system of thought control is working ceaselessly, tirelessly, ruthlessly, to insure the adoption of the League. And it will be adopted, for business wants peace, the righteous cannot resist a covenant, and the politicians, after shadow-boxing for patronage purposes, will yield valiantly lest the fate of the wanton and wilful pursue them.
By these means we hope smoothly to overcome all effective opposition on the on the part of our colony America to entering the League — that is, the Empire. As soon as the League is functioning properly, His Majesty in response to loyal and repeated solicitation, might graciously be pleased to consent to restore to this people their ancient right to petition at the foot of the throne; to confer the ancient rank and style of governor general upon our Ambassador, that this colony may enjoy a status inferior to no other colony’s; to establish the primacy of the Metropolitan See, with the Right Reverend Dr. Manning as first primate; to appoint Mr. Elihu Root lord chief justice of the colony, and to nominate Messrs. W. H. Taft, Nicholas Murray Butler, J. P. Morgan, Elizabeth Marbury, Adolph Ochs, and Thomas Lamont to the colonial privity council; as a special mark of royal and imperial condescension, to rename the Federal Capital of the Colony Georgetown, and lest section jealousy be thereby excited, to grant royal charters to the cities of Boston and Chicago entitling them thereafter to style themselves, respectively, Kingston and Guelf – concisely to bestow in time and in measure such tokens of the bounty of the Crown as the fealty of the colonists merit.
BRITISH-AMERICAN UNION URGED
Since that memorable day, September 19, 1877, on which the late Cecil Rhodes devised by will a fund “to and for the establishment, promotion, and development of a secret society — the true aim of which and object of which shall be the extension of British rule throughout the world, and especially the ultimate recovery of the United States of America as an integral part of the British Empire” — the energy and intelligence of England has not been spent in vain. It would perhaps be presumptuous of me to refer here to the admirable services rendered not only by LORD NORTHCLlFFE (the probable author of the report) and the corps of 12,000 trained workers whom he introduced here during the year as purchasing agents under the direction of Sir Campbell Stuart, but also the right Honorable Arthur J. Balfour, and by Lord Reading. But my report would be incomplete without a reference to Mr. Andrew Carnegie, of Skibo Castle, Sutherlandshire, and New York City. He unobtrusively assumed the mantle of the late Mr. Cecil Rhodes. Through the Carnegie Foundation, he obtained such control over the professorate of this country that even President Wilson was a suppliant for a Carnegie pension before this people and allied gratitude placed him beyond prospective want.
The Carnegie League to Enforce Peace and its affiliate League of Small Nations are even now leading the van in our fight. In the North American Review, June 1893, Mr. Carnegie wrote: “Let men say what they will, I say that as surely as the sun in the heavens once shone upon Britain and America united, so surely is it one morning to rise, to shine upon, to greet again, the reunited state — the British-American union.”
The object of Cecil Rhodes is almost attained. The day prophesied by Mr. Carnegie is near at hand, the day when the American Colonies will be in all things one with the motherland, one and indivisible. Only the last great battle remains to be. fought — the battle to compel her acceptance of the terms of the League of Nations.”

Between 4 and 20 August the Saudi Arabian government beheaded 19 people. Saudi Arabia, which has funded and armed ISIS from inception (initially with CIA support), is now bombing alongside the USA in Iraq and Syria.
Forget the war technology porn regularly being broadcast by western media, with those spectacular photos of missiles erupting from ships into the night sky. Those missiles and bombs eviscerate and maim innocents as well as combatants, children as well as terrorists. The West always first denies, then regrets, “collateral damage”. The propaganda can be laughable. During the invasion of Iraq I remember a news propaganda item about how a cruise missile can enter a specific window, being followed by the next item – the US had apologised to Syria for two missiles aimed at Iraq which had hit Syria by accident.
If we can accidentally bomb the Chinese Embassy in Serbia, we can – and do – hit civilian homes near the proposed target. Being eviscerated by a piece of flying shrapnel is no less terrible than being beheaded by a jihadist. Let us not pretend that our violence is somehow nicer. Children will be dying under our bombs soon.
Other than the two extraordinary crazed Nigerians, there have been no recent Islamic motivated terrorist attacks in the UK and even a slowdown in the propaganda of phoney attacks. This was a threat to the major financial interests of the security industry, in both its governmental and private branches.
There can be no greater nonsense than the idea that the Caliphate poses a direct threat to the UK. This is even more crazy than the claim that Saddam Hussein posed a threat to the UK. But by seeking to join in the bombing campaign, and initiating a new round of fake “anti-terror” arrests in London, the British government is doing everything it possibly can do to try to provoke terrorist violence on British streets. The interests of the security state are therefore secured. I am longing for somebody to explain to me the precise mechanism by which our bombing Islamic countries helps prevent terrorist incidents in the UK. The way it can provoke such incidents seems to me too obvious to need stating. Indeed it says a great deal for the wisdom and tolerance of Britain’s Muslim communities that it has not provoked more. They could teach government a great deal about the good sense of not resorting to violence to gratify passions and earn short term acclaim.

If bombing a country really made it better, we would have made a paradise of Iraq by now. Instead it is a total disaster, with access to electricity, drinking water, education and health services all far worse than they were before we started bombing it. That is even without the growth of the Caliphate, or ISIS, a direct result first of our deposing Saddam and conniving in the intolerant Shia rule of Maliki, and then of our connivance in arming and funding anyone willing to fight Assad.
So now we are told we have to bomb Iraq yet again, and this time, finally, that will make it all better. There are two extraordinary contradictions in the British position.
1) The justification in international law given by the neo-cons for the current bombing of Iraq is that it is at the invitation of the government of Iraq. But simultaneously they propose to bomb Syria to attack the government of Syria. This is the most astonishing hypocrisy.
2) The Caliphate forces were encouraged and trained by the CIA initially. They continue to be massively financed from Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States. In fact, the Caliphate is still funded to a massive degree from the very states who are currently bombing them alongside the United States – Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar and the UAE. It is the ruling families of those states which are attacking ISIS in an official capacity, who are financing ISIS in a private capacity. The BBC manages to avoid any mention of Saudi funding for ISIS. The interests of the City of London are, as always, the most important factor for the British establishment.
The security state here in the UK needs the “War on Terror” to justify its continued existence and the power and jobs of those who administer it. One thing that is certain to keep the conflict going, and thus keep the security state going, is for us to start bombing the Middle East again.
The right wing old crawler Menzies Campbell just came on the BBC to support British bombing. Stand by to see the Unionist parties united in neo-imperialist brotherhood.
Nabil Naiim, a former top al Qaeda commander, has been speaking, on Beirut-based pan-Arab TV station al-Maydeen, about ISIS.heyhey1956 refers us to an article entitled: “Former Al Qaeda Commander on the ISIS Strategy.”From the video, and the above article, we learn:
1. All the current al-Qaeda affiliates, including ISIS, work for the CIA.
2. Wounded Al Qaeda and ISIS warriors are treated in hospitals in Israel and Qatar.
(The Israeli media have been reporting this for months).
3. ISIS says it will attack Saudi Arabia.
The conflict will spread to Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf monarchies by 2016.
3. The al Qaeda linked Al-Nusra in Syria works for the CIA.
4. The purpose is a long lasting war between Sunnis and Shiites to help secure Israel – the ‘divide and rule’ principle.
Sally Jones (above) is from Chatham, near London.
In the 1990s, Sally was in Krunch, an all-girl rock band.
Sally has two children and has lived on state benefits.
Sally has contributed to forums on conspiracy theories, witchcraft and black magic.
Sally’s neighbour Julie Horton, 58, is quoted as saying of Sally: “She was very scatty… Men came and went but she lived mainly as a single mum with her two boys.”
Another neighbour said: “She was … up all hours of the night… She had problems with debts so one minute she was there, the next she’d scarpered. She started to go through a phase of thinking she was a witch.
“She’d post pictures on Facebook of her dressed in a cloak and said things about being able to talk to spirits.”
MI5 and MI6 use Satanism in their mind control operations.
Sally recently married a British computer hacker called Junaid Hussain, aged 20.
Junaid was the leader of a computer hacking group known as Team Poison.
At one time, Junaid ‘suspected of violent disorder in Birmingham, fled Britain while on police bail’.
In 2012, Junaid was jailed for six months for stealing sensitive information from an aide to Tony Blair.
MI5 and MI6 like to recruit their false-flag terrorists from prisons.
Junaid is now one of the British ‘suspects’ in the fake beheading of the US journalist James Foley.
Junaid travelled to the Middle east with Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, 24, a former rapper, who is also a suspect in the fake killing of Foley.
Sally is now believed to be living in Raqqa, the Syrian stronghold of the terror group IS (ISIS).
Sally Jones should not be confused with the above Sally Anne Jones. (Society girl ‘foresaw’ blaze in tarot reading)
Sally Jones has reportedly posted a series of ‘chilling threats’ on social networking sites and posed for photos with an AK-47.
Sally warned in one post: “You Christians all need beheading with a nice blunt knife and stuck on the railings at Raqqa… Come here I’ll do it for you!”
She has praised the crypto-Jew and CIA asset Osama bin Laden.
