In order to understand Mitt Romney’s love of Israel, money and power, it may help to look into the historical relationship between Jews and Mormons.
Through his associations with ceremonial magic as a young treasure seer, Smith contacted symbols and lore taken directly from Kabbalah. In his prophetic translation of sacred writ, his hermeneutic method was in nature Kabbalistic. With his initiation into Masonry, he entered a tradition born of the Hermetic-Kabbalistic tradition. These associations culminated in Nauvoo, the period of his most important doctrinal and ritual innovations. During these last years, he enjoyed friendship with a European Jew well-versed in the standard Kabbalistic works and possibly possessing in Nauvoo an extraordinary collection of Kabbalistic books and manuscripts. By 1844 Smith not only was cognizant of Kabbalah, but enlisted theosophic concepts taken directly from its principal text in his most important doctrinal sermon, the “King Follett Discourse.”
Smith’s concepts of God’s plurality, his vision of God as anthropos, and his possession by the issue of sacred marriage, all might have been cross-fertilized by this intercourse with Kabbalistic theosophy–an occult relationship climaxing in Nauvoo. This is a complex thesis; its understanding requires exploration of an occult religious tradition spanning more that a millennium of Western history, an investigation that begins naturally with Kabbalah.
Over a century before other churches began to rethink traditional Christian (mis-) understandings of Jews and Judaism, LDS leaders not only saw Judaism in a positive light, they even sent a mission to Palestine to bless the land that it might receive the Jewish people back.
Joseph Smith in his Book of Mormon had plenty to say about Jews, not all of it favorable, but did speak of the restoration of Israel which could explain much of the Mormon support for the illicit state.
And it came to pass that I, Nephi, spake much unto them concerning these things; yea, I spake unto them concerning the restoration of the Jews in the latter days.
And I did rehearse unto them the words of Isaiah, who spake concerning the restoration of the Jews, or of the house of Israel; and after they were restored they should no more be confounded, neither should they be scattered again.
Zionists and Mormon politicians have a long history of working together and pushing propaganda and myths.
The best known and most influential Mormons in the United States during the 1930s and 1940s were Senators William King and Elbert Thomas, both Democrats from Utah. Both men were fervent Christian Zionists.
Thomas had visited Jerusalem in 1912. According to his diary, he sat on the Mount of Olives and read from the writings of early Mormon leader Orson Hyde about the Jews: “Consecrate this land for the gathering together of Judah’s scattered remnants, for the building up of Jerusalem again after it has been trodden down by the Gentiles so long. Restore the kingdom unto Israel, raise up Jerusalem as its capitol.”
King, for his part, was one of the founding members of the American Palestine Committee, an organization set up in the 1930s to rally Christian support for Jewish statehood.
Sen. Thomas developed close ties to Benzion Netanyahu, who in those days was director of the Revisionist Zionists’ American division.
Benzion Netanyahu’s relationship with one of the most influential Mormons in America in those days is particularly interesting in view of this week’s New York Times report about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s previously unknown, longtime personal friendship with Mitt Romney, dating back to their work together at the Boston Consulting Group in the 1970s.
David Ben Gurion: “You know, there are no people in the world who understand the Jews like the Mormons.”
Ben Gurion was the first president of Israel when it became a nation in 1948.
Strange Mormon cult practices even has a major fraud denouncing them.
Prominent Holocau$t survivor Elie Wiesel has called on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to “speak to his own church” and ask them to stop performing posthumous proxy baptisms on Jews.
In the practice, known as “baptism for the dead,” living people stand in for the deceased to offer that person a chance to join the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the afterlife, according to an account in the Tribune. Mormons believe it is their moral obligation to do the temple rituals, while those on the other side can choose whether to accept the action or not.
Juvenile Instructor Vol. 27, page 344 Bathsheba W. Smith, born May 3, 1822 , wife of President George A. Smith in her ” Recollections of the Prophet Joseph Smith”, published in the Juvenile Instructor for June 1,1892 is the following: I heard him say “Peradventure, the Ten Tribes were not on this globe, but a portion of this earth cleaved off with them, went flying into space, and when the earth reels to and fro like a drunken man, and the stars from heaven fall, it would join on again.’”
Journal of Discourses, Volume 7, pages 285-286, by Brigham Young, “It is no more difficult to transfer the Ten Tribes from this earth to another planet, than it is to take the city of Enoch from this earth, or bring Adam and Eve from another planet.”
Millennial Star, Volume 28, pages 417-419, Orson Pratt, ” The prophet Mormon, the father of Moroni, had been trusted with all sacred records of his forefathers, engraved on metallic plates. New plates were made by Mormon, on which he wrote, from the more ancient books, an abridged history of the nation, incorporating therewith many revelations, prophecies, the Gospel, etc.. These new plates were given to Moroni on which to finish the history. All of the ancient plates Mormon deposited in Cumorah, about three hundred and eighty four years after Christ. When Moroni, about thirty six years after, made the deposit of the book entrusted to him, he was, without a doubt, inspired to select a department of the hill separate from the numerous volumes hid up by his father. The particular place on the hill, where Moroni secreted his book, was revealed by the angel Moroni to the Prophet Joseph Smith, to whom the volume was delivered in September, A.D. 1827. But the grand depository of all of the numerous records of the ancient nations of the western continent was located in another department of the hill, and its contents under the charge of Holy Angels, until the day should come for them to be transferred to the sacred temple of Zion.”
[The North Pole is] “containing thousands of millions of Israelites.”

One of the most startling of Joseph Smith’s “revelations” concerned the moon and its inhabitants. He even took the liberty of describing the moon-dwellers and their dress! He stated: “The inhabitants of the moon are more of a uniform size than the inhabitants of the earth, being about six feet in height. They dress very much like the Quaker style and are quite general in style, or the fashion of dress They live to be very old; coming generally near a thousand years.” (From the Journal of Oliver B. Huntington, a devout Mormon contemporary of Joseph Smith. Copy at Utah State Historical Society, Vol. 2, pg. 166. Also found in The Henry E. Huntington Library, Pasadena, California).
Both have been spoken of (seriously and devotedly by members and mockingly by detractors) as a “chosen people.”
That’s just a start. There’s much more if one cares to delve into it.
Does Mitt Romney actually ‘believe’ all of this Mormon doctrine? Or even some of it? He doesn’t talk about it and wants us to think he will be a ‘secular’ president. A Judaic Mormon president is a scary thought. So is four more years of Obama.
We are now entirely,
more than entirely, devastated!
Towers stand like smouldering charcoal,
the church has been thrown down.
The Town Hall lies in rubble,
the strong are vanquished.
Virgins have been ravished
and wherever we look
there is fire, plague and death.
Tears of the Fatherland, anno 1636
From the 30 Years’ War almost 400 years ago up until today…..not much has changed except for the players and the ever evolving weaponry.
So what is all the fuss about?It’s a paper entitled “Preparing For A Post Israel Middle East”, an 82-page analysis that concludes that the American national interest in fundamentally at odds with that of Zionist Israel. The authors conclude that Israel is currently the greatest threat to US national interests because its nature and actions prevent normal US relations with Arab and Muslim countries and, to a growing degree, the wider international community.The study was commissioned by the US Intelligence Community comprising 16 American intelligence agencies with an annual budget in excess of $ 70 billion.Interestingly, it notes Iran as an example of a country and people that have much in common and whose citizens have a real interest in enjoy bilateral associations (here an apparent reference to Israel and its US lobby) not determined by the wishes of other countries and their agents. It also highlights the need for the US to undertake the repairing of relations with Arab and Muslim countries, including the drastically curtained use of drone aircraft.The coming days will clarity the success of Israel’s in making an issue of the finding in the soon to be published daft report and the degree to which the Republican Party will gain for its findings in the race for the White House.Note: the ‘daft’ misspelling is being copied and pasted all over the internet as is and may be a hint.

At first I though it was another internet spoof but it still shows up in a google search even though NBC has long since fixed it.
The Apollo missions to the moon were entertainment and from 1969 to 1972 were a good diversion from the Vietnam War. Yep, we could do more than waring and killing. We could go to the moon.
Over the last 100 years we have been lied to more than we’ve been told the truth so it’s a legitimate question to ask if we ever actually landed some men on the moon. Some folks would rather not mix up this question with others like 9/11 for fear of being looked at like crazed conspiracists and lessening the importance of that subject but some of us live by the motto “Question Everything.”
For purely entertainment purposes I would suggest looking at Dave McGowan’s “Wagging the Moondoggie.” At least it’s more fun than watching a Neil Armstrong tribute on TV.

Yeah, it’s been a fairly easy last 24 hours for the gamers in the sport of the 9/11 myth as many in the media have coordinated publicly releases touting a book allegedly by a SEAL who was there.

It doesn’t seem like it’s been 20 years since the events of Ruby Ridge. There wasn’t much of an internet then so the only way to get the real story was from shortwave radio.The patriot talk shows jump started a movement that despite some setbacks still continues to this day.
William Grigg has an excellent article that is a must read as a reminder.
Hank Williams Jr. is really not worth talking about but we’ll try and make some small point.
Freedom of speech is great. No matter how dumb, grab a pulpit and shout it out.
Jr. was in Iowa the other day…
Following the song “We Don’t Apologize For America” a chant of “USA, USA” broke out amongst the crowd. Williams smiled, telling the crowd that he was their mouth piece and adding:
“We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US and we hate him!”
The cheers that followed were loud and enthusiastic.
Now most of us don’t like Barry. We also don’t like Romney and his little twinkie Paul Ryan. We certainly didn’t like Bush and Cheney. Heck, the last politician we even tried to like was Jimmy Carter but he was in over his head and that didn’t turn out very well. We tend to be an equal opportunity disliker, unlike Jr. who seems to think that if there’s an R after the name then they must be all giddy for God and country…and war.
What’s the deal here Jr? You and Barry actually seem to have a lot in common. Both of you don’t appear to mind if the military kills off a bunch of Muslims, protects opium crops, destroys countries in the Middle East, sucks up to Israel and gives bankers a free rein to steal. Just like your hero GW did, not much difference there. I guess Barry’s just not progressing fast enough in the killing for you. I’d say you want any attack on Syria and Iran to be delayed until after your Mitt takes office so he can take all the credit…and you too can take a bow as a mouth piece.
Rumors in my head say that you want to kick off Mitt’s inauguration with a rousing “Are You Ready For Some Genocide!”
Maybe I shouldn’t be so hard on you Jr. After all, the accident back in ’75 that left your frontal lobes damaged and all the years of drug and alcohol abuse may have taken its toll and you just can’t help yourself. Plus all the repetitive rhetoric whispered in your ear from your buddies Shawn Hannity, Glenn Beck and Mike Huckabee about Muslims did 9/11 and we’ve got to get ’em over there before they do it again was just too hard to overcome.
Country music has long been a tool for the neocons. Drinking and carousing, support the vets, that’s all you need. No songs of peace allowed. No speaking out against war even if you apologize. Just ask the Dixie Chicks. Rejecting the two party system of fraud in song? Why, that would be downright un-American.
A tongue can accuse and carry bad news
The seeds of distrust it will sow
But unless you’ve made no mistakes in your life
Be careful of stones that you throw
To understand some of our current situations, it is imperative that we have an understanding of history. Not what has been presented to us as propaganda and as a means for control but what has been hidden.
Dr. Ashraf Ezzat takes on the myths of the ‘chosen ones,’ stolen from prior writings, turned upside down and for the first time in the history of mankind, introduced/nurtured the idea of religious extremism and through a prism of total prejudice and deeply seated grudge the Hebrew scribes wrote, page up and page down, not what really happened in ancient times, but rather what they wished had happened.
The Hebrew scribes, in a cheap bid to grant a piece of land to the Israelites, and through their deliberation/or thoughtlessness had managed to strip the literature of ancient Sumer and the mythology of Egypt of its mysticism, universalism and wisdom. Through their tampering with the rich theology of the Ancient near East, and by clumsily sticking their tribal god into its intricate and sublime design, the religious thinking and evolution has since been immersed in dogmatism, tainted with extremism and gone astray.
