“When you find issues/controversies which people love to debate endlessly, which are emotionally inflammatory and which divide the masses into oppositional stances/groups – it is a pretty strong possibility that the controlling elites might be busy behind the scenes, fomenting these quarrels and keeping them alive.”
a comment from here
There are numerous ways in which we are being set up for purposes of control and some of the main ones are the old divide and conquer techniques.
Nowhere is that more apparent than in our own middle Tennessee area where the building of mosques, lawsuits against them and anti-shariah conferences get not only a ton of local publicity but national as well.
The latest ‘event’ took place over this past weekend as the Constitution or Sharia Conference. Kicked out from a local hotel the organizers had previously booked, they found a sanctuary to hold it in none other than Cornerstone Church, Nashville’s premier Christian zionist stronghold.
This would be the church that found its calling and money when it hired Pastor Maury Davis, a convicted murderer from Texas. In a state that executes its killers left and right, Davis, who slit the throat of recent widow, a Sunday school teacher, nearly decapitating her for no apparent reason beyond just for the heck of it, walked with barely a slap on the wrist. Davis got lucky when a ‘born again’ confused deranged juror smelled devil possession and convinced the rest of the jury that a charge of manslaughter was sufficient and he was sentenced to 20 years. Lucky Maury was released after 8 1/2 years due to prison overcrowding and the ‘redeemed’ murderer began his path of preaching which eventually led him to Nashville becoming the Cornerstone pastor who built up his flock to over 3,000 attendees a week and with radio and TV shows and the subsequent salesmanship and begging for money that allows Davis to live large.
Not to dismiss the possibility that redemption and forgiveness is not possible in this world but one might think that the direction of this ‘reformed’ killer might be towards peace and brotherhood but it was not to be. Anti-Islam and pro-war with a touch of zionist perversion became the talking points.
Hosting the anti-Shariah conference was not Cornerstone’s first foray with invited faux Christian speakers. Hate and war mongers Geert Wilders, Mike Huckabee and Oliver North were previously welcomed there and Huckabee returned the favor, having Davis on his own neocon, Israel first Fox News show.
Promoters of illegal wars find a place at Cornerstone but rumor has it that a parishioner, a terminally ill man whose doctor had told him it would be fine to smoke marijuana if it eased his pain, was kicked out of the church for doing so. So much for compassion being a virtue.
That’s a little background on the host. We’ll move on to the parasites who feed off the willing host.
The anti-sharia conference was led by Hanah Kahwagi Tudor, aka Brigitte Gabriel, founder of ACT! for America who laid the Islamophobia on thick. Others included Rick Scarborough, founder of Vision America which seeks to mobilize pastors in the service of promoting ‘Judeo-Christian’ (code for zionism) values, who had another suggestion for the group. “The greatest grassroots opportunity of all is to get your pastor involved,” he said. Christopher Holton with the Center for Security Policy, (whose founders include a number of neocon and PNAC figures including Frank Gaffney, Douglas Feith and Richard Perle) spoke of legislative efforts in the pipeline including a law that would make it illegal for state pension funds to invest in a foreign company that does business in Iran. Nothing about the Koch Brothers bribery and dealings with Iran though.
Frank Gaffney, in an incredible display of chutzpah, used a Power Point to demonstrate the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood (CIA and MI6 funded/controlled?) into the highest levels of governments. Former FBI agent John Guandolo also presented aspects of the Muslim Brotherhood’s operation of influence on the George W. Bush and Barack Obama Administrations. Guandolo, who resigned from the FBI when it was discovered that he had been sleeping with a key witness in the corruption case against former Congressman William Jefferson, also said regarding local mosques, “They do not have a First Amendment right to do anything.” and “They exist to break the law.”
ThinkProgress even had reporters in Nashville where they interviewed State representative Rick Womick, wild eyed republican from Murfreesboro, who called for all Muslims to be forced out of the U.S. military.
“Personally, I don’t trust one Muslim in our military, because they’re commanded to lie to us through the term called taqiyya. And if they truly are a devout Muslim and follow the Koran and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they’re commanded to kill me.”
Womick certainly has the terms down pat in order to make himself look educated in Islamic teachings instead of the hick pseudo politician that he is.
There was an out of state anti-zionist and anti-war Christian group, Strait Gate, who came to Nashville for a protest/educational vigil outside Cornerstone church. Their message of “Choose Life, Not War”and “Who Would Jesus Bomb” stands in stark contrast to those at the conference. You can read a summary of their visit and confrontation with Pastor Maury Davis here.
The local news sites had a number of articles on the conference. There were hundreds and hundreds of comments posted. A great number of anti-sharia sympathizers of course chimed in and were countered by many opposed to their bigotry but most of their arguments centered on first amendment rights and religious freedom. True in the constitutional sense and relevant although very very few mentioned that this was basically about divide and conquer. While ‘Christians’ argued about Muslims and with other ‘Christians’ and atheists complained about all religions, I saw no one who had anything to say about this all being a set up, years in the making.
Tennessee is a designated refugee relocation area with one of the largest Muslim populations in the country. We are not refugee bashers, many of our ancestors came to this land as refugees, and it would be hypocritical. to deny others the same opportunity but the question has to be asked. Why this area? I don’t know for sure but there is a built in bigot population and a great number of folks whose only education on Muslims comes from their teevee screen, right wing talk radio and sometimes their pulpit and repetition is a major aspect of mind control. Were we set up to become a simmering pot of hatred, stirred as needed and used for control and diversions? A centralized location that puts a more rural face on the issue in contrast to urban areas like NY City? It sure seems like it to me.
There’s a website, Refugee Resettlement Watch, which has a Nashville category. Warning … it is biased and often ugly but includes a lot of links where if one is willing to wade through the muck there is some relevant information to be found. One obvious reason for the refugees in this area was for economic exploitation, specifically Tyson in Shelbyville, where there is another of those Bill Clinton connections. Another connection is with the Catholic Charities of Tennessee, Inc. that receives a ton of money from the federal government and the State of Tennessee for their refugee resettlement programs although it appears local communities and even the state have little say so on what refugees come in or where they go. Is any of this important to the discussion? Well, it does explain the numbers and brings in the role of NGO’s who are an integral part in all kinds of social engineering agendas. Historically, we were warned about NGO’s. The Dodd Report to the Reece Committee on Foundations in 1954 gave us a warning on the manipulation of NGO’s, including the Ford Foundation and the ADL, on the education system. Norman Dodd’s interview in 1982 with G. Edward Griffin confirmed it. The call for a permanent watchdog committee to keep an eye on these NGO’s was squashed by the money behind them. Since then these types of organizations have multiplied beyond simple comprehension and are the force behind numerous nefarious activities including the anti-sharia front groups. We have been and are being set up.
The anti-sharia organizations are nothing more than a psyops. Besides American infighting which distracts from the blatant banker and corporate theft, one main purpose is to keep the middle east wars continuing, identify manufactured enemies for expansion of the wars and moving down the path to Eretz Israel. Voters who can’t see through the propaganda put representatives in office who will walk lockstep with the agendas. Two of our own middle Tennessee reps, Diane Black and Marsha Blackburn, are typical examples.
Lastly, I want to point out a very transparent aspect to the Islamophobia talking points. At these conferences and on talk radio these people can go on for hours in their hate fest of Muslims and the rhetoric of Sharia Law coming to take us over. Threats of all sorts are tossed around that never have a chance of taking hold but the one aspect of Sharia that is a real threat to the status quo is never mentioned, never … prohibition of Usury.
The idea that there could be a world without the slavery of interest on debt is taboo. What would the haters say? That we must protect the bankers? That usury is as American as apple pie? That it’s only the crazy Muslims who would even consider prohibiting interest on loans? Just to use the word in any kind of context might get some folks wondering what it’s all about and if they find out that throughout most of Christian history usury was banned as the root of most evils it could lead to discussions that the bankers and their lackeys would not like. Alternatives to usury find the churches silent. It is never talked about in the schools and to even meet people who are aware enough to discuss it is rare. Occasionally there are voices that slip through in the media and it’s almost a shock.
Wars are being fought as we speak and rumors of more wars are hyped to make sure usury is maintained. We should think about it. We should talk about it. Doing away with usury is a seed that needs to be planted despite the strong arm of the bankers saying “kill it before it grows.”
Being set up at every turn is what we have to deal with. One advantage we have is that there are many who can see through the lies and have this sense of purpose to spread the word with the belief that it will make a difference. It will …..
