We don’t owe the debt of criminals

Posted on

It’s redundant to say so. The so called debt that is being imposed upon the people is not just only illegitimate, it is the result of the actions of murderers, thieves and liars. For the self styled demigods of a fraudulent government to imply that we owe anything for their illegal and immoral deeds is nothing more than spitting in our faces while the gun is held to our heads.

We can go back further but for the sake of argument, 1913 and the introduction of the Federal Reserve and the income tax on labor was the beginning of the end. It’s been downhill ever since. You know the story. The voices of a few sane and honest people over the last hundred years have been silenced by the din of multi-frequency noise coming from heinous criminals who are equal to any in history.

Folks are waking up. I ran into an old guy the other day who without prompting said “They are destroying the middle class.” But he, like so many others with a job, is in a state of paralysis. Working out his last few years without rocking the boat and hoping that his pension will allow his salvation from the chaos. He may be in for a deadly surprise.

I don’t have a lot to say except that this false debt ceiling debate doesn’t often include, at least in the treasonous media, the ongoing criminality of those who decide what they are going to steal next and who they are going to kill.

No! We don’t owe the debt of criminals. The last question standing is are we going to do anything about it?

Will the meek inherit the earth? Not this time.

Austerity for Arms

Posted on Updated on

‘Can’t pay! Won’t pay!’

War criminal Dwight Eisenhower once in a moment of clarity or maybe it was in a moment of guilty delusion said every gun that is made is a theft from those who hunger.” If he were alive today, we might just respond with “you ain’t seen nothing yet.”

A new report puts the Greece crisis in perspective. It all makes a lot of sense now that we know Greece is the 4th biggest arms importer in the world and that it was all bought on corrupt credit.

It turns out that throughout this crisis of Greek public debt, and under the direction of the same international potentates who are imposing cuts in spending on welfare, pensions, health care, the public sector and all of the other usual targets, the country’s ‘socialist’ government has continued to spend vast sums on armaments.

The fact that the principal suppliers of these arms are two of ‘austerity’s’ biggest proponents, the USA and Germany, should not surprise us. We have moved beyond a situation in which lying by leaders is not so much accepted as expected, into one in which reality plays no role whatsoever in their discourse.

Greece may, in the estimation of politicians and the mass media, be a badly-governed, corrupt kleptocracy populated by robber barons and a lazy, feckless class of reluctant workers, but it is at least armed to the teeth. The immediate cause of Greece’s financial crisis was a doubling, from 2005 to 2008, of the value of loans from western banks to the country’s government. By the end of that period, these loans amounted to $160 billion. {more}

Depending on who hands out the statistics, Greece may actually only be 5th  or so in the world’s arms market buying spree but there is no doubt who is the number 1 supplier. It’s just about the only thing we export but another fact is that we are also number 1 in using up the armaments we make and we borrow the money to deliver them to their target or give them away to Israel and to buy more. Bankers and war go hand in hand. Always have, always will. Their middle men, corporations and politicians, are lackeys in the game. The poor and working class are the pawns and are expected to pay the price.

Mark this on your calender. September in London brings the largest arms show in the world and it’s only a couple of days after the 10th anniversary of 9/11. War mongers can celebrate their favorite day of death and then party down with all of their friends and customers, making deals and planning more destruction.

It’s not all for killing folks in other lands either. Security of the homeland is a big focus this year. Gotta keep the slaves in line in case they jump on that ‘Can’t pay! Won’t pay!’ bandwagon.

And don’t you just love the DSEi’s headline theme …..

Infinite Opportunities. One world-leading event.

This is not OK …..

Theatre of Democracy

“One of the points about distractions is 
that everything that they do is destabilizing.
                            Bruce Sterling





The main point about the current distractions is that as we are caught up in them there are dozens of other things going on that we are missing. I think that’s by design and even when it’s not, opportunists are quick to pounce. 


In my own locale there are a couple of examples that due to distractions few are taking heed of the creeping fascism soon to overwhelm us. This time it’s a Republican dirty dance but only because they have the majority. The Dems will betray us next time if they get the chance.

Voting is kabuki theatre but should we just give up and let the fix be in without even putting up a fight? Some will say we ought to just walk away and not feed the false system but that’s a debate for another time.


The Tennessee legislature voted in 2008 to use paper ballots, got it delayed for the 2010 elections and now …

State representatives are trying to reverse most of a 2008 law that called for the replacement of electronic voting machines across the state with paper ballots read by computerized scanners. The move would kill off a plan that supporters say would create a verifiable record of votes but opponents say will be costly and open to tampering. more

Paper ballots can be scammed too, there’s a long history of it but I would rather take a chance on my neighbor counting and recounting the votes than Diebold or ES&S and their ‘friends.’ It’s not about the costs. It’s about ease of fraud.

Running for office is about to become even more of a corporate adulterous affair than it is now.

In the wake of the 2010 Citizens United v Federal Election Commission decision by the US Supreme Court, which ruled that corporations have the same right to free speech as citizens and should be able to directly fund independent political broadcasts, the Tennessee legislature has gone one step further and decided that companies should be able to give money directly to candidates – and that includes foreign companies! more

Politicians may as well get corporate logos and foreign flags tattooed on their ass so that they can just drop their pants, bend over and show us what to kiss. No words needed. For some of them it would be the most honest thing they’ve ever done.

When Obama visits ‘ground zero’ in New York this Thursday, the theatre of the absurd will go from bad to worse. He couldn’t get Bush to join him in this perverted orgy of the success of death and lies but possibly Giuliani will be there to silently smile about his role in mass murder and cover up.

Maybe Obama will finally explain to the 9/11 families just how Bin Laden blew up the towers?

Nah … now I’m being absurd.

Captain with 101st charged with taking bribes in Iraq

By Bill Theobald • Tennessean • August 18, 2009

A captain with the 101st Airborne Division has been indicted on charges of taking tens of thousands of dollars in bribes in exchange for steering business to two contractors while serving as a procurement officer in Iraq, the U.S. attorney’s office in the southern district of New York announced Monday.

Capt. Bryant Williams, 38, of Clarksville, Tenn., was charged with one count of fraud and one count of bribery. He surrendered to authorities in Manhattan and was to be arraigned in federal court later in the day.

Starting in October 2005, the indictment says, he asked two contractors — not identified in the indictment — to pay him a percentage of the contracts they received.When the two received contracts through other procurement officers, Williams brandished his firearm and threatened them with “physical injury,” the indictment alleges. {more}

Rabbi/Government "Culture of Corruption"

Edmund Nahum, 56, of Deal, one of many people arrested this morning.

Black market organ trafficking and money laundering involving Talmudic Rabbis and all kinds of government officials and willing accomplices makes for very interesting news. This should be the number 1 news story of the next few days but all the money roads will most likely lead to Israel and well known banks so it will probably be buried fairly quickly. Notice how the illegal organ trafficking part of the story will be downplayed and that, when mentioned, the rabbis are from the Syrian jewish community.

A real life jewish mafia story if there ever was one.

Just the tip of the iceberg. Low level criminals get caught but the higher ups are still free.

Massive New Jersey corruption probe snares officials, rabbis

Posted by The Star-Ledger Continuous News Desk July 23, 2009 4:35PM

Federal authorities arrested 44 people in New Jersey and New York in a broad-ranging corruption and international money laundering investigation that led to charges against two N.J. assemblyman and mayors of Hoboken, Secaucus and Ridgefield. The FBI and IRS investigation also ensnared rabbis from the Syrian Jewish communities in Deal and Brooklyn. {much more on this story Here}

Culture of Corruption – press conference video

This guy didn’t last long. Mayor of Hoboken for 23 days before being arrested. That may be a record.

https://i0.wp.com/blog.nj.com/ledgerupdates_impact/2009/07/large_cammarano.jpg

Peter J. Cammarano is sworn in as Hoboken’s 37th mayor by United States District Court Judge Katharine S. Hayden, Wednesday, July 1. He is joined by his wife, Marita and daughter, Abigail.

July 23 (Bloomberg)Peter Cammarano, Hoboken, New Jersey’s youngest mayor, celebrated his 32nd birthday last night by bartending at the city’s St. Ann’s Festival.

“I would like to thank everyone today for the birthday wishes,” Cammarano, who took office July 1, wrote in a Twitter message early today. “Hope everyone had a great time at the opening night for St. Ann’s feast.”

The birthday cheer didn’t last long. Within hours of that post, Cammarano was taken into custody by the FBI along with about 40 local and state officials and rabbis as part of a public corruption and money-laundering investigation.

In Hoboken, the birthplace of Frank Sinatra and former working-class enclave whose townhouses and tree-lined streets became a haven for young professionals starting in the 1980s, the arrest may remind some residents of the 1954 film about corruption, “On the Waterfront,” which was filmed in the city.{more}

Human Organ Peddlers…..

FBI agent and a cooperating witness allegedly spoke with defendant Issac Rosenbaum about procuring a liver for the undercover agent’s sick uncle.

“Let me explain this to you,” Rosenbaum allegedly said in the taped conversation. “It’s illegal to buy. It’s illegal to sell. They are going to investigate him [the donor], not you, not your uncle. He’s going to speak to a social worker and a psychologist to find out why he is doing it … and it is our job to prepare him.”

Rosenbaum allegedly set the cost at $160,000 — half of it up front, according to court papers. {more}

It probably seemed exciting to those of you not intimately familiar in the ways of Jews from the Garden State but this thing really didn’t elicit much more than a NBD from us this morning. Money-laundering? Rabbis? Shady politicians? Welcome to my childhood. Now, our interest has been piqued, not so much because of the dead bodies but the notion that you could make an entire career out of peddling this shit:

The probe also involves the trafficking of body parts, according to a person familiar with the matter. One of the individuals who was arrested Thursday morning is an alleged organ dealer, this person said. {source}

Corruption in politics isn’t exactly anything new, but human organ traffic? Here in America? Are you fucking kidding me with this? This is the kind of heinous atrocity that happens in seedy slums of the third world, not the seedy slums of New Jersey and the bright shiny operating rooms in expensive hospitals in New York, Los Angeles and Philly, right? Right? WRONG!

This is what happens when capitalism goes unchecked for too long. This is what happens when a society is so corrupt and rotten that it has lost its center and can only spiral into decay and collapse.

I had to find out more to try to quell the nausea. What I’ve found so far follows.

Newsweek magazine published a story earlier this year written by a Medical Anthropologist named Nancy Scheper-Hughes, from UC Berkeley. Not Just Urban Legend

By accident or by design, she believed, surgeons in their unit had been transplanting black-market kidneys from residents of the world’s most impoverished slums into the failing bodies of wealthy dialysis patients from Israel, Europe and the United States. According to Scheper-Hughes, the arrangements were being negotiated by an elaborate network of criminals who kept most of the money themselves. For about $150,000 per transplant, these organ brokers would reach across continents to connect buyers and sellers, whom they then guided to “broker-friendly” hospitals here in the United States (places where Scheper-Hughes says surgeons were either complicit in the scheme or willing to turn a blind eye). The brokers themselves often posed as or hired clergy to accompany their clients into the hospital and ensure that the process went smoothly. The organ sellers typically got a few thousand dollars for their troubles, plus the chance to see an American city.

This is a racket that transports living people from third world countries and extracts their organs in hospitals so that they can be transplanted. Where are we living again, some chapter of Brave New World, or Coma? {more}

I have to wonder how many of the organ donors contributed against their will. Remember the Israeli white slave market involving tens of thousands of women and girls?

The Zionist Gang that Bankrupted General Motors

Posted on

by Christopher Bollyn

General Motors did not fall due to natural forces. Like the twin towers on 9-11, GM was taken down. Like 9-11, GM was sabotaged from the inside. The corporate raiders who took down GM are part of the same network of Jewish Zionists who brought down the World Trade Center.

THE ZIONISTS BEHIND THE DESTRUCTION OF GENERAL MOTORS
June 16, 2009

The bankruptcy of General Motors (GM) is very similar to the collapse of the twin towers of the World Trade Center on 9-11. Both catastrophic events are described in the controlled media as having occurred due to natural forces, while actually they are both the results of sabotage carried out by insiders. In both cases, the people who brought down the operation were Trojan Horses, people who had bought their way into positions of control in order to destroy them. The people behind the destruction of GM and the WTC are corporate raiders of the worst kind.

General Motors did not simply collapse as a result of market forces; it was bankrupted by corporate raiders who had infiltrated the company and taken control of its finances. Likewise, the evidence indicates that the twin towers of the World Trade Center did not collapse due to the stresses associated with the plane crashes; they were prepared in advance to be demolished using extremely powerful explosives, including tons of nano-thermite, or super-thermite. This was facilitated by the people who had obtained control of the towers shortly before 9-11, namely Larry Silverstein and the former Israeli commando Frank Lowy.

What is most remarkable is that these events are closely related. The same people are involved in the conspiracy to plunder and destroy both the World Trade Center and General Motors. This article identifies some of the key people and reveals the strategy behind the destruction of one of America’s oldest companies.

BANKRUPTING GENERAL MOTORS

General Motors Corp. filed for bankruptcy on June 2, 2009, as the Zionist-run Obama administration provided unprecedented federal funding and oversight. The bankruptcy filing by GM was the third-largest in American history and the largest ever in U.S. manufacturing. Now that GM is facing restructuring, its assets will be taken over for pennies on the dollar. The notorious corporate raider Carl C. Icahn, for example, is reportedly looking at taking over Delphi Chassis Systems.

So, how did GM go bankrupt? If one looks at the sales figures for GM, it simply does not make sense. In 2007, GM was the largest producer of vehicles in the world, manufacturing 13 percent of the total, and had the largest slice of the U.S. car and truck market with 23.4 percent of domestic sales.


In 2007, GM led in global production and U.S. market share. Graphics from Wikinvest.

Globally, GM sold 9.4 million cars and trucks in 2007, an increase of 3 percent over 2006. GM’s 2007 tally was, in fact, the second best global sales total in the company’s 100-year history and marked the third consecutive year the company had sold more than 9 million vehicles. That doesn’t sound like a company on the brink of collapse, does it? In its 100-year history GM had been through much worse downturns, such as the Great Depression and the Second World War, yet GM managed to survive and thrive. What is so different about the management at GM in the past few years that it caused America’s biggest auto manufacturer to go into bankruptcy despite three consecutive bumber years of global sales?

George Richard (Rick) Wagoner became president and chief executive officer of GM on June 1, 2000. The value of GM stock started the month of May 2000 at its peak of over $93 per share. The day Wagoner became CEO the stock finished at $69.81. By the end of the year it was worth less than $51 per share. GM stock had fallen to about $35 when Wagoner was elected chairman on May 1, 2003. Why promote a CEO who was clearly taking the company down the drain?

Despite the falling stock price, Wagoner remained CEO and chairman of GM until March 29, 2009. Under Wagoner’s leadership GM suffered more than $85 billion in losses — losing $82 billion in the last 4 years! Why wasn’t Wagoner replaced earlier? How was GM selling more cars than ever but losing more and more money? It simply doesn’t make sense.


Were his hands tied? Rick Wagoner (center) with Mark Neporent (left), COO of Cerberus, and Eric Feldstein (right), chief executive of GMAC and treasurer of General Motors Corp. This photo is from the 2006 announcement of the Cerberus deal for a majority stake in GMAC in which Bernard Madoff’s partner-in-crime, J. Ezra Merkin, became chairman of GMAC. Is Wagoner responsible for $85 billion in losses at GM – or was he just a useful idiot?

In 2008, GM sold 8.35 million cars and trucks globally under the following brands: Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, GM Daewoo, Holden, Hummer, Opel, Pontiac, Saab, Saturn, Vauxhall and Wuling. GM’s largest market is the U.S., followed by China, Brazil, the United Kingdom, Canada, Russia, and Germany. Despite three years of record sales, GM lost $18.8 billion during the first 6 months of 2008; by late October, its stock had dropped 76 percent, and it was considering a merger with Chrysler.

At the time the GM-Chrysler merger was being considered, Chrysler was primarily owned (80.1 percent) by the private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management, L.P., headed by Stephen A. Feinberg and Jacob Ezra Merkin. Cerberus is named after the mythological three-headed dog of Hell. It should be noted that Feinberg and Merkin also controlled General Motors Acceptance Corp. (GMAC), the financial services branch of GM.

GM sold 51 percent of GMAC in 2006 to Feinberg’s private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management LP, and Jacob Ezra Merkin became chairman of GMAC. Had the merger gone through, Feinberg and Merkin would have probably become majority owners of both GM and Chrysler. This appears to have been the plan. Feinberg and Merkin, the owners of GMAC, had plundered and conspired to bring down GM so that they could take it over.

When Cerberus gained control of GMAC, they hurt GM’s domestic sales by raising the credit requirements for car loans. Feinberg and Merkin reportedly raised the credit requirements so high that they caused a very sizable chunk of sales to be lost due to customers’ inability to secure financing. Cerberus reportedly used this tactic to pressure GM into selling or trading their remaining stake in GMAC.


Ezra Merkin became a controlling owner of Israel’s Bank Leumi shortly before he got his hands on GMAC in 2006. Here he shakes the hand of the notorious war criminal Ariel Sharon as he hands him a check for $500 million. Ehud Olmert (center) held secret meetings in New York City on September 10, 2001. Merkin’s private Israeli bank has a branch in Switzerland that contains billions of stolen dollars held in secret numbered accounts.

Merkin is clearly a criminal. He is one of the key players of the multi-billion dollar criminal fraud carried out by Bernard Madoff. Merkin secretly diverted untold billions to Madoff’s fraudulent investment fund. One of Merkin’s funds lost $1.8 billion of investor cash with Madoff. Merkin was seen as “the Golden Boy controlling the Golden Goose.”

Feinberg and Merkin were also controlling co-owners of Israel’s Bank Leumi, which had been privatized in 2005 under finance minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Bank Leumi also has off-shore banks and a branch in Switzerland in which billions of dollars are held in secret numbered accounts.

It was reported on December 30, 2008, that the U.S. Treasury would provide $6 billion more for GMAC, headed by Merkin and the extremely secretive Feinberg. Feinberg is so secretive his Who’s Who biography says he is deceased!


Stephen A. Feinberg, Ezra Merkin’s partner-in-crime.

The U.S. Treasury was reportedly buying a $5 billion stake in GMAC and lending $1 billion to GM. This “loan” was in addition to $13.4 billion of taxpayer dollars the Treasury had already lent to GM and Chrysler LLC. Once again, a plundered and bankrupted company was being “bailed-out” with taxpayer funds.

Merkin had been chairman of GMAC since November 2006. GMAC reportedly lost nearly $8 billion while Merkin was in charge. Despite Merkin’s huge losses at GMAC and his involvement in the Madoff criminal scam, the U.S. government evidently had no problem providing billions of taxpayer dollars to Merkin, whose Ariel Fund was one of the largest funds feeding billions to Bernie Madoff’s financial black hole. Madoff reportedly “lost” some $50 billion, or more.

Jacob Ezra Merkin, orthodox Jew and devoted Zionist, finally resigned as chairman of GMAC on January 9, 2009. How was Merkin allowed to remain in control of the privately-held GMAC operation for so long despite his history of financial fraud?

WHO RAN GMAC?

GMAC is a very interesting operation. A wholly owned subsidiary of General Motors since 1919, GMAC provided customers with more than $1.4 trillion in credit to finance more than 162 million vehicles. Originally designed to provide financing for people buying GM vehicles, it branched out into other fields, such as real estate. GMAC Commercial Mortgage (GMACCM), for example, provided the funds for Larry Silverstein and the former Israeli commando Frank Lowy to take over the World Trade Center in July 2001. The towers served as the collateral. GMAC Commercial Mortgage sold $563 million in bonds backed by a loan to Silverstein Properties for its purchase of the towers. If Silverstein and Lowy were part of the conspiracy to destroy the World Trade Center, the people controlling GMACCM would probably also be. Who was controlling the purse strings at GMAC in 2001 when Silverstein was negotiating to obtain control of the World Trade Center?


Larry Silverstein, here with his daughter Lisa, made billions of dollars from the destruction of the World Trade Center. He is the former chairman of the UJA-Federation of New York, the largest Zionist fund-raising organization in the world.

At GMAC, the person in charge of the money was Eric A. Feldstein, born in Brookline, Mass. in 1959. Feldstein had worked in the office of the treasurer at GM Corp. from 1981-91 and was regional treasurer in Europe from 1991-93. In 1993, he returned to New York as assistant treasurer. In March 1996, he was named executive vice president and chief financial officer of GMAC and chairman of the GMAC Mortgage Group, where he oversaw corporate activities responsible for general finance, audit, and worldwide borrowings.

Feldstein became treasurer of General Motors in November 1997, and was elected vice president the following month. In June 2001, Feldstein was named General Motors’ vice president, finance, and corporate treasurer. When GM and GMAC failed in 2008, Feldstein went to work for Feinberg and Merkin at Cerberus, joining the team named after the three-headed dog of Hell. At Cerberus, Feldstein was made executive vice president.


Eric Feldstein, the treasurer of GM, laughs with Rick Wagoner and Mark Neporent, COO of Cerberus, as the Zionist-run fund took majority control of GMAC. By this point, GM was well on its way to losing $85 billion – all during Feldstein’s term as GM corporate treasurer and vice president in charge of finance.

Eric Feldstein is the son of Donald Feldstein, a high-ranking member of a number of Zionist organizations in New York and New Jersey. The elder Feldstein is one year older than Larry Silverstein and has a long history of leadership in the same Zionist organization as Silverstein. Donald Feldstein was an executive director of the United Jewish Appeal-Federation Jewish Philanthropies in New York City from 1976-81. This is the huge Zionist fund-raising organization that Larry Silverstein headed as the chairman of the board and where he is an honorary board member. The connection between Donald Feldstein and Larry Silverstein at this Zionist organization certainly played a role in Eric Feldstein’s decision to use GMAC money to back Silverstein’s bid for the World Trade Center. It is through such Zionist organizations like the UJA-Federation and the secretive order of B’nai B’rith, an international organization of Jewish Freemasons, that the Zionist network functions. In this way actions and decisions that affect whole nations can be made without anyone outside the “community” being aware.

GMAC Commercial Mortgage Corp., under the leadership of Donald Feldstein’s son, provided an $800 million loan to fellow Zionists Silverstein and Lowy to back their bid for the soon-to-be privatized World Trade Center in the summer of 2001. This privatization deal, initiated by the Zionist Ronald Lauder and managed by Lewis Eisenberg of the Port Authority, was finalized at the end of July 2001. The WTC complex was finally put into private hands – Zionist hands – only 6 weeks before it was demolished and pulverized with super-thermite.

FELDSTEIN JOINS ETON

After being fired from GMAC, Eric Feldstein went to work for Cerberus in March 2008. Three months later he became CFO at Eton Park Capital Management. Eton Park is a hedge fund run by 42-year-old Eric M. Mindich, formerly with Goldman Sachs, and Alan R. Batkin, the vice chairman of the fund. Batkin, 64, is the senior partner at Eton Park. Although Feldstein lost billions as the head of GMAC and was fired because he had destroyed the 90-year-old company, Mindich and Batkin made him chief financial officer at Eton Park. Feldstein’s colossal failure at GMAC evidently did not bother them. He was clearly being rewarded for a job well done.

Alan Batkin, the vice chairman at Eton Park, is very highly connected. Batkin was, for example, vice chairman of Kissinger Associates Inc. from 1990 through 2006. It is, however, his executive positions at some of the biggest companies of Israel, such as Israel Discount Bank (IDB) and Discount Investment Corporation, Ltd., that reveal the intense Israeli character of Eton Park. (The IDB has been privatized and is also closely tied to the Madoff scam.)

Alan R. Batkin is a member of the board of governors of Tel Aviv University and is treasurer of PEC Israel Economic Corp. (part of Discount Investment Corporation, Ltd.) where he has served as CEO, president, and director. He also served as the Chief Executive Officer and President of Orama Ltd. (a venture capital firm founded in 1999 to support companies in the Israeli technology sector; a subsidiary of IDB Group, Ltd.)

From 1972 to 1990, Batkin was an investment banker at Lehman Brothers, where he a Managing Director for 14 years. Batkin has been, since 1999, a director of Overseas Shipholding Group Inc. (OSG), which owns and manages a large fleet of transatlantic oil tankers. As a director of OSG, Batkin works with Solomon Merkin, the brother of Jacob Ezra Merkin. Their father, Hermann Merkin, was one of the owners of the company along with the Recanati family of Israel Discount Bank. Batkin is also vice chairman and a director of Hasbro Inc. since 1992.


Solomon Merkin

Batkin was a director of Infinity Broadcasting Corp. since April 1992. Infinity provided popular talk radio with a distinctly pro-Israel point of view. Foremost among Infinity’s talk show staff was Howard Stern, a vulgar and controversial radio personality. Other national radio performers employed by Infinity included Don Imus, Larry King, G. Gordon Liddy and Rush Limbaugh. Infinity merged with CBS Radio in 1997.

Alan Batkin is a scion of the intensely Zionist Batkin and Tenzer families and the son of Stanley Irving Batkin, a leading Zionist figure since the 1930s. Stanley Batkin is a recipient of Israel’s Prime Minister’s Medallion (1974) and the City of Jerusalem Medal (1976). These awards are given to Zionists for extraordinary service to Israel. The elder Batkin has served, since the founding of the state of Israel, as an executive of the following organizations (among many others): the Zionist Organization of America; the State of Israel Bond Committee; the Jewish Theological Seminary; State of Israel Bonds; Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science; Friends of Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design, Inc.; and Yeshiva University Museum.

Obama and the AMA

Posted on

https://i1.wp.com/www.uwo.ca/oncology/images/images_st/3933072_uge_program_300.jpg
The heartbeat of America’s health care system is faint.

I’m still working with the premise that if the Obama administration, just as most of those in the past, is pushing for an extreme makeover in any aspect of our society, it is not in the best interests of the common people. Special interests and those with the gold pull the strings.

A few comments on Obama’s speech (in italics) to the AMA…

“And if we fail to act, federal spending on Medicaid and Medicare will grow over the coming decades by an amount almost equal to the amount our government currently spends on our nation’s defense. In fact, it will eventually grow larger than what our government spends on anything else today.”

Shouldn’t that be our spending on military offense? I fail to see any defense to it. We can’t continue the killing and spend money to save lives at home. Social security, medicaid, medicare can be cut, the military/industrial complex cannot.

“To say it as plainly as I can, health care reform is the single most important thing we can do for America’s long-term fiscal health.

War, interest paid to the Federal Reserve, bailouts for criminal bankers and Wall Street, foreign aid to certain states don’t count do they?

“First, we need to upgrade our medical records by switching from a paper to an electronic system of record keeping. And we have already begun to do this with an investment we made as part of our Recovery Act.”

Don’t worry about medical information theft and big brother compiling a dossier on every aspect of your life. It’s for your own good.

And of course private companies such as the benevolent GE are willing to help out.

General Electric Co.’s health care division said Monday it will offer financing to doctors and hospitals that buy GE’s electronic medical records equipment in an effort to cover an expected lag in the flow of federal stimulus money meant for the medical technology.

Through its GE Capital lending arm, GE Healthcare will make $100 million available to potential buyers of GE’s equipment that computerizes paper patient medical records.

The $787 billion federal stimulus package includes about $19 billion to help doctors and hospitals shift their systems to electronic medical records. But much of the money isn’t expected to be available until 2011, and investing in the computer equipment and software for a system can cost up to several million dollars for medical providers.

GE Healthcare hopes to entice potential customers by offering loans that carry zero interest and deferred payments for providers until they receieve stimulus money. {more}

No Obama speech would be complete without the teleprompter telling him to say a few words that we would all agree with and already know. Propagandists know you can’t lie with every statement.

The second step that we can all agree on is to invest more in preventive care so that we can avoid illness and disease in the first place.
It also means cutting down on all the junk food that is fueling an epidemic of obesity.

OK, but he just has to add that we are too stupid to figure this out on our own.

“It will take doctors telling us what risk factors we should avoid and what preventive measures we should pursue.”

“But I believe – and I’ve even taken some flak from members of my own party for this belief – that it is important for us to build on our traditions here in the United States.

Would that tradition include the frauds of pharmaceutical companies and the FDA? Obama never said a word about this.

Murder By Injection: The Medical Conspiracy Against America

by Eustace Mullins, (book review – 1988)


This book is a truly thorough account of the machinations underlying America´s steadily deteriorating health, and is the result of some forty years of investigative research by the author Eustace Mullins. MURDER BY INJECTION reinforces and adds further light to the devastating exposés, WORLD WITHOUT CANCER by G. Edward Griffin, The DRUG STORY by Morris Bealle and Hans Ruesch´s NAKED EMPRESS OR THE GREAT MEDICAL FRAUD.

MURDER BY INJECTION explains how the ruthless Rockefeller Syndicate – under the control of the world financial structure, chiefly the Rothschilds – plays the major political, health and educational roles in America. The book describes the various arms of the Rockefeller Syndicate and their functions: the Rockefeller Oil Trust, which incorporates much of the American military-industrial complex, has political control of the nation; the Rockefeller Medical Monopoly attains control of health care of America; and the Rockefeller Foundation, a web of affiliated tax exempt creations, effectively controls education.


Mullins specifies names throughout the book, many of them belonging to familiar public figures in America. Companies and their board of directors are listed with all their connections.


Eustace Mullins says that in 1987 the United States still maintains an overwhelming lead in the production and sale of drugs. Eleven of the eighteen leading firms are located in the United States and the Drug Trust in the United States is controlled by the Rockefeller group. Mullins adds: The major banks, defense firms, and prominent political figures interlock with the CIA and the drug firms. He further states that the Rockefeller interests, having established the American Drug Trust, had long been active not only in pharmaceutical drugs but in illegal drugs as well. Mullins writes: No chronical of the world´s important drug firms would be complete without relating the connection between drug firms and the world drug operation known as ´Dope, Inc.´.


Mullins describes how the Rockefellers with the help of the American Medical Association and government officials gained control of America´s health care industry in the early part of this century. Educating medical students was instrumental in their plan, Mullins writes: Rockefeller´s Education Board has spent more than $100 million to gain control of the nation´s medical schools and turn our physicians to physicians of the allopathic school, dedicated to surgery and the heavy use of drugs.

MURDER BY INJECTION describes in detail the many other dangerous and lucrative rackets that the Rockefeller Syndicate has foistered onto the unsuspecting public and which are responsible for the contamination of our land, oceans and rivers, our water and food supplies, and our bodies. For example Mullins writes: While conducting wars of attrition against the leading exponents of better nutrition, the Food and Drug Administration and the American Medical Association have valiantly defended the use of chemical fertilizers… (which, according to Dr Alexis Carrel) ´without replacing all the exhausted elements of the soil, have indirectly contributed to change the nutritive value of cereal grains and vegetables.´

On vaccinations: After the use of cowpox vaccine became widespread in England, a smallpox epidemic broke out which killed 22,081 people. The smallpox epidemics became worse each year that the vaccine was used. In 1872, 44,480 people were killed by it. England finally banned the vaccine in 1948, despite the fact that it was one of the most widely heralded ´contributions´ which that country had made to modern medicine. This action came after many years of compulsory vaccination, during which period those who refused to submit to its dangers were hurried off to jail.

On fluoridation: What he [Oscar Ewing] wanted, and what he had been paid to bring about, was the national fluoridation of our drinking water… At the same time, Congressmen and other politicians in Washington were privately alerted by Ewing´s minions that they should be careful about ingesting the fluoridated water. Supplies of bottled water from mountain springs then appeared in every office on Capitol Hill; these have been maintained continuously ever since, at the taxpayers´ expense.

On the consequences of the Rockefellers´ control: The criminal syndicalists are now looting the American nation of one trillion dollars each year, of which about one-third, more than three hundred billion dollars per year, represents the profitable depredations of the Drug Trust and its medical subsidiaries…

America became the greatest and most productive nation in the world. When the Rockefeller Syndicate began its takeover of our medical profession in 1910, our citizens went into a sharp decline. Today, we suffer from a host of debilitating ailments, both mental and physical, nearly all of which can be traced directly to the operations of the chemical and drug monopoly, and which pose the greatest threat to our continued existence as a nation.

Although the book mainly deals with America, the situations described by Mullins in many respects equally applies to Australia, as in most other countries. The immense damning evidence that he presents makes MURDER BY INJECTION essential reading for those who are serious about understanding the true reasons behind our ailing health. {source}


Also see Natural News for up to date information on health and the fraud of the medical establishment.

Many of our fine doctors are honest and hardworking. Some have fallen to the pursuit of money and some are just frauds and charlatans.

Eliminate the fraud and lies of the big business interests and have doctors go back to their oath “Do no harm” and we can provide adequate health care for all.

And don’t forget, the money for health care has always been there, the government is more interested in killing than saving.
