During a live webcast, Obama sympathized with the persecution of the Jewish people, suggesting he was able to understand their plight because he was an African-American. (Really)
Both men wanted a race war. Both men committed murder in an attempt to spark it. But both men’s stories are treated very differently by the media.
The world is shocked by the killing of 24-year-old reporter Alison Parker and 27-year-old cameraman Adam Ward, of small Virginia station WDBJ (a CBS affiliate), by disgruntled and disturbed ex-co-worker Vester Lee Flanagan II, who not incidentally is homosexual. By interrupting a live TV interview and committing his act on air, Flanagan, 41, got the attention he apparently craved and gave the world something unforgettable: real-life murder appearing movie-style, in deadly living color. And while such a thing makes the story impossible for even politically correct media to completely ignore — black-on-white crimes normally receive no national coverage — it’s quite possible to cover it politically correctly.
It’s no surprise that some have compared Flanagan to Dylann Roof, the 21-year-old murderer of nine people in the Charleston, South Carolina, church shooting on June 17. Not only did both men commit violence intended to spark a race war, but Flanagan — a failed reporter who wrote that he’d “already been a human powder keg for a while” — cited the church massacre as the event that sent him “over the top.” He said that he “put down a deposit for a gun on 6/19/15,” two days after Charleston, and that if Roof wanted a “race war,” to “BRING IT.” Both men also made their racial views public, Roof through an online website and Flanagan via a 23-page manifesto sent to ABC News.
But despite these striking similarities, the type of guilt by association drawn by the media is very different in each case. As InfoWars reports:
Police reportedly confiscated a gay pride flag from Flanagan’s apartment on Wednesday, but in an example of hypocrisy, this hasn’t sparked outrage from liberals who wanted to ban the Confederate flag due to its association with Charleston, S.C. church shooter Dylann Roof.
“Libs got the Confederate flag taken down in South Carolina,” blogger Dave Blount pointed out. “They have imposed a de facto ban throughout the country through their control of major retailers like Walmart, Amazon, eBay, Sears, etc.”
“The show The Dukes of Hazard has been taken off the air because it features the flag on the roof of a car.”
Yet the rainbow flag is getting a pass, despite being associated with a movement that makes demonization a specialty. Behaving as if those upholding marriage’s correct definition (one man, one woman) cannot, ever, have sincere intellect-derived beliefs, the homosexual lobby routinely impugns them as “bigots” and “haters.” And the message is clear: If you oppose faux marriage, you cannot be a good person — and you deserve whatever you get. Just ask Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King, Jr. As she put it earlier this year, “When I speak out against gay marriage, the supporters of that movement threaten to kill me.”
None of this bleeps much on the media radar screen, despite Flanagan making his status as a homosexual black man central to the issue of his actions. Instead, the media has focused on a common fallback issue: guns. As Powerline put it, “If we are going to take seriously the ideology of lunatics, it must be a two-way street. Dylann Roof’s racist ideology was taken very seriously…. In Flanagan’s case, the focus is on gun control rather than his equally racist ideology.”
Moving on, Flanagan was disciplined by WDBJ for, among many trespasses, violating station policy by wearing a Barack Obama button during an election report. This brought Powerline to another double standard:
So why do we not retroactively conclude that images of Barack Obama are hateful, like the Confederate flag, and must be banned? Glenn Reynolds asks, “Will Obama apologize for the behavior of one of his followers [or say, ‘If I had a psycho son, he’d look like Vester Lee’]?” Of course not. But imagine if a racist white killer who worked for a television station had been similarly disciplined for wearing, say, a Ted Cruz button. Do you not think that fact would be deemed highly relevant, and highly embarrassing to Senator Cruz?
But we don’t have to imagine, as conservative figures have been implicated in others’ crimes for far less. When Arizona representative Gabby Giffords was shot by an insane man in 2011, Sarah Palin was criticized for previously having used cross-hairs imagery on a map showing Democrats who should be targeted for defeat. And leftists, including PBS icon Bill Moyers, have often blamed “right-wing” talk radio for various acts of violence.
But what of Obama? He once said of Republicans, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” He told supporters in 2008 to argue with their neighbors “and get in their face.” He stated in 2010 that he spoke to certain experts because he wanted to “know whose a** to kick.” That same year he was being interviewed by Spanish-language station Univision and said that he wanted Hispanics to help him “punish our enemies” — those “enemies” being fellow Americans who disagreed with him politically.
Of course, everyone uses figurative speech at times (life would be quite dry if we all spoke like Mr. Spock), and context can clarify a quotation’s meaning. And all sides use some incendiary rhetoric, all sides sometimes implicate others’ rhetoric in violence, and all sides will deny that their rhetoric had anything to do with a violent act seemingly committed in its name. What do these universally exhibited contradictions indicate? That the truth here is quite nuanced.
None of us exist in a social vacuum. We all are influenced by others, and influence others, no matter how slightly. As for words, who would deny that Adolf Hitler’s incendiary rhetoric inspired violence and destruction or that imams preaching hate in countless mosques and madrassahs worldwide have the same effect? On the other hand, it’s well known that Enlightenment philosophers — such as Thomas Paine with his pamphlet Common Sense — helped inspire a war: The American Revolution. But are all these individuals equally culpable in evil?
The reality is that rhetoric, whether good or bad, can inspire violence. And either variety can inspire justifiable or unjustifiable violence. So should we all stop talking (of course, even body language can cause fights)? What we should do is recognize that the real issue is not whether rhetoric is “controversial,” “divisive,” or even “inflammatory,” but whether it is true and warranted utterance at the time in question.
There is no doubt that Vester Lee Flanagan and Dylann Roof were influenced by others. The question is: Were they influenced by very different forces, as is the usual assumption?
Or were they mostly influenced by the same ones?

Pope Ratzinger, The Teutonic Knight
A recent head of the Catholic Church was a member of the Nazi Youth Party. Whether he had repented or not, surely his sworn association with this movement as a youth should disqualify him to head a supposed religion of peace and goodwill. Apparently not…
“…Ratzinger’s Wehrmacht unit shot at allied pilots over Germany. We are supposed to believe that Ratzinger didn’t really mean to hurt anyone? Alas, it was war. Still, Ratzinger’s response to the most overwhelming evil of our times was to go along with it.”
By beatifying hundreds of Francoist thugs, Pope Benedict once again reveals his Nazi roots. The fact that the thugs wore Roman collars makes them saints. Read the appalling CWN story here.
The Pope says all Christians should be ready to suffer martyrdom. (At whose hands seem to be irrelevant)
This sounds a little tinny coming from a Pope who once swore personal loyalty and devoted allegiance to Adolph Hitler. The Pope’s apologists say that Ratzinger wasn’t really a Nazi—he swore the Hitler oath in order to save his own skin.
Also, we should forget that Ratzinger’s Wehrmacht unit shot at Allied pilots over Germany… it was war after all.
However, just following orders, Ratzinger’s response to the most overwhelming evil of our times was to go along with it.
“These boys and girls enter our organizations [at] ten years of age, and often for the first time get a little fresh air; after four years of the Young Folk they go on to the Hitler Youth, where we have them for another four years . . . And even if they are still not complete National Socialists, they go to Labor Service and are smoothed out there for another six, seven months . . . And whatever class consciousness or social status might still be left . . . the Wehrmacht [German armed forces] will take care of that.”
—Adolf Hitler (1938)

For the Hitler Youth, instruction aimed to produce race-conscious, obedient, self-sacrificing Germans who would be willing to die for Führer and Fatherland.
Devotion to Adolf Hitler was a key component of Hitler Youth training.One thing’s for sure: if you’re martyred in your youth, you’ll never grow up to be Pope.

Pope Ratzinger’s replacement, is Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now Pope Francis (2013) he was the head of the Jesuit order during the dictatorship… From where else? Argentina.
After World War Two, thousands of Nazis and wartime collaborators from France, Croatia, Belgium and other parts of Europe were looking for a new home: preferably as far away from the Nuremberg Trials as possible. Argentina welcomed hundreds if not thousands of them: the Juan Domingo Perón regime went to great lengths to get them there, sending agents to Europe to ease their passage, providing travel documents and in many cases covering expenses.
If you should have the opportunity to look through old World War II pictures, notice the Crusader’s Cross pinned to the Nazi uniform.
The Teutonic Knights were founded in 1190 at the time of the Third Crusade by German lords fighting in the Holy Land. Like that of the Templars and Hospitallers their original purpose also included the care and welfare of pilgrims. It was not long, however, until they transferred their interest from fighting in the Holy Land to fighting Muslims in Germany’s eastern frontier.
Wearing a black cross on white surcoats, the Teutonic Knights fought equally against Christians and heathens in eastern Europe and were essentially a state in the guise of a religious order, conquering Prussia from the Slavs and pushing into Lithuania, Estonia, and Russia.
Man made mechanisms and systems for keeping time have transformed us into time slaves for others, as well as to ourselves.
We have become spiritual slaves to the World’s Time Standard (Coordinated Universal Time), the Gregorian calendar, and the unnatural pattern and progression of days, weeks, years and the various time-segmented parts they contain.
Following the natural cycle of the sun and moon to keep track of time instead of depending upon man made mechanisms and systems, would cause many things to change.
“Time is the primary socializing tool and the clock is the key machine of industrial capitalism. The imperialism of space and material is everywhere evident, but the imperialism of time is a shadowy beast. What is of direct concern is how time is perceived, controlled, exploited, manipulated, institutionalized, and internalized. If we do not understand time, we become its victims.
One thing remains apparent: time politics are power politics. Every sundial, water mill, calendar, week cycle, social policy, and temporal monument has served a particular interest and ideology. The hallmark of these, of course, has always been technological power and chauvinist control. In the service of precision, the atomic second is now defined as the duration of 9,192,631,770 particle oscillations within a cesium 133 atom.”
—Buried Inside, Chronoclast (Introduction), 2005
“That [people] can be characterized as wound up, run down, rusty, or going like clockwork is essentially a product of seventeenth century thought. It implies not only that their work may be accurately measured, but also that their motions can be studied. Given proper incentives, they will follow predetermined and appropriately mechanical patterns”
–Samuel L. Macy, “The Dynamics of Progress: Time, Method, and Measure” (1989)
When indoctrinated into meaningless measures of time, humans certainly are conditioned, and do follow predetermined, mathematically calculable patterns and tendencies. Thus, these tendencies can be calculated and fully exploited by others. Time is money, or so it is said.
From an all too familiar Marxist perspective we find, “To work at a machine, the workman should be taught from childhood in order that he may learn to adapt his own movements to the uniform and unceasing motion of an automaton.” Karl Marx, “Das Kapital” (1867)
Without this type of conditioning from a very early age would “the people” be so willingly to sell their lives for a minimum wage that is never enough?
“We are making the transition into what economists call an experience economy – a world in which each person’s own life becomes, in effect, a commercial market. In business circles, the new operative term is the lifetime value of the customer, the theoretical measure of how much a human being is worth if every moment of his or her life were to be commodified in one form or another in the commercial sphere.”
–Jeremy Rifkin, “The Age of Access” (2000)
The Sun and Earth’s interaction gives us a yearly cycle, the Moon’s lunation pattern give us monthly cycle, the constant rising and falling of Sun and Moon gives us a daily cycle, and the Moon’s affect on tides gives us a natural quarter day cycle as the tides come in and out. All other delineations of time, however, are arbitrary and man made.
The “second” appears nowhere in the natural world. The “minute” named after Min, is also an invented cycle with no actual parallel in nature. The “hour” named after Horus, the Egyptian god, who divides the days and nights into twelve equal parts, is an ancient myth, and not a cycle found in nature. The worst and most spiritually enslaving of the created cycles, however, is undoubtedly the “week.”
Because of this ludicrous unnatural cycle, almost everyone in the world, no matter what their life was like the past 7 days, ends up being almost exactly the same the next 7 days!
Every seventh time the Sun rises and sets most of the world’s population hits the “replay” button on their life and continue repeating the same conditioned pattern/schedule like an endless loop for every small facet of modern society and its entire existence. Whole lives become reduced to repetitive patterns, suffocating and incarcerating the soul with a plethora of surrogate activities.
“The calendar year is an imperial narrative. The seven day week is an imperial infliction. Circannual holidays are imperial flag-posts. Mechanical time is an imperial installation. The merchant workday is an imperial offering. Greenwich Mean Time is an imperial sanction.” –Buried Inside, Chronoclast (V. Time as Imperialism), 2005
Interestingly, The word “calendar” comes from the Roman/Latin, “calends,” which was the name of the account book, the book recording monthly debts and bills to be paid. The first day of each month in the early Christian “Julian” calendar was called “calends” and that was when you had to paid your bills and debts.
The Moon goes around the Earth thirteen times in one year. 13 x 28 = 364 +1 day equals 365 days, one solar year.
The ancients all used thirteen Moon, 28 day calendars and celebrated the extra day (always on July 25th) as the “day out of time,” when the rising great star Sirius peaks. Unfortunately, sensible measurement of time was not the issue, as disconnecting human consciousness from Moon time was part of the agenda for Pope Gregory in 1572. The result, the Gregorian Calendar overtly removed the 13th Moon.
In essence, the Gregorian calendar is arbitrary and irregular and doesn’t reflect anything natural. In fact, if anything at all, the Gregorian calendar repeats its program precisely every twenty-eight years and keeps most of us out of phase with nature. Being intangible, the diabolical nature of this artificial measurement of time becomes cumulative and more and more apparent. At least for those that may notice time does not reside in a purely linear dimension.
If space affects our senses, time affects our mind. Therefore the effects of a crooked time on the mind may be far more subtle, yet far worse than the effects of a crooked space on the senses. We could all develop a crooked mind without even knowing it.
Wouldn’t a crooked mind see the world in a crooked way and create problems for itself without knowing it? Not only that, but we would then think all of our problems come from some place outside of ourselves. We would always be looking for the problems out there some place.”
–Jose Arguelles, “Stopping Time” (2003)
Natural biological cycles are encoded within the lunar cycles. The measure of the Moon from new Moon to new Moon is called the synodic cycle and is 29.5 days in length. However the sidereal lunar cycle which measures the Moon from where it reappears in the same place in the sky is only 27.1 days in length.
It has been shown that 20% more people are admitted into hospitals and mental health facilities during full Moons. Could this be a result of unnatural interference and misalignments with natural biological cycles?
In more modern times, those who worship the Moon/Lunar cycles are called lunatics, monsters and nuts. Those who measure time by the Sun/solar calendars find solace. The etymology again points towards our “illumined” masters and their Sun worship.
The ancient Mayan calendar is slightly even more accurate than the Gregorian calendar we use today. They calculated the moon’s orbit of the Earth incredibly precisely (29.528395 days to our current 29.530588 day measurement). They could accurately predict solar and lunar eclipses and had amazing knowledge of astrology and the stars.
The Mayan calendar measures cycles of expanding consciousness and completing one’s purposes in life. Gauging the passing days like this changes the way one thinks of life. Modern societies tend to see time as a ticking time bomb till they die, a clockwork of standardized gears cranking until they get older, decrepit, useless and stop turning.
To associate the nature of time with the evolution of consciousness seems to be a much more evolved outlook. The Maya knew about the 25,920 year precession cycle of the equinoxes in which the Earth rotates slightly for 2,160 years past each constellation of the zodiac.
These Mayans also had a calendar, ‘a heathen’ device that was far more accurate than the Julian calendar. Ironically, it was from that ‘heathen’ Mayan calendar, the discoverers were to learn, that their calendars were ten days off.
The result of this discovery, all the Aztec/Mayan books and documents were burned in 1562. Interestingly enough, ten years later in 1572, there was a new pope. He named himself Gregory XIII and declared that his first act as pope would be to correct the Julian calendar.
In, 1582. Pope Gregory XIII had achieved his aim. When you went to bed on the evening of October 5, 1582, you woke up it was October 16 and not October 6. Pope Gregory XIII had made up for this ten days and the Julian calendar was now known as the Gregorian.” –Jose Arguelles, “Stopping Time” (2003)
Time has come today
Young hearts can go their way
Can’t put it off another day
I don’t care what others say
They say we don’t listen anyway
Time has come today, hey

With Israel being the object of the most explicit and obsessive genocidal threats from Iran, those interested in Israel’s well-being ought to be leading the fight against the deal. Many non-Jews in and out of Congress are doing so. That Jewish members of Congress slouch towards endorsing the agreement, and hundreds of Jewish clergy provide a supporting chorus for that endorsement, are sad if all too familiar reprises of an old, morally bankrupt pattern.
