The Protocols And You

America is uneasy; something is very wrong. We are trapped in a terrible
war of aggression but news of it is censored in our Zionist media cocoon.
The horrors of war, mass murder is secret, invisible. Zionist media soothes
US with "normalcy" and distracts US with sham controversies, "theatre",
sports spectacles, and the doings of celebrities. Apathy prevails, "What can I
do about it?" 

We have a rogue government; it has abrogated the Constitution and the
Constitutional balance of powers. Congress signs laws without reading them.
Washington is bankrupt and still incurs historic deficits in world trade and
spending; the Federal Reserve secretly transfers our gold; the global
environment is endangered; Capitalism, globalization, deregulation rule;
industry liquidated and the proceeds poured into speculation; millions
unemployed; hunger and poverty widespread; prosperity is propaganda;
prices inflated without equal wage increases; oppressive wage taxes, the
wealth of the rich is borrowed); Social Security and Medicare attacked;
healthcare devastated by cost, super security on sham "terrorism" (9/11 was
an "inside job"); freedom and liberty eroded day by day; armies of secret
police sweep the nation; secret surveillance everywhere; the people disarmed
and super regulated; we are a hairsbreadth from martial law; moneyed
factions tear at the society, criminalizing millions; the family destroyed and
the children in day-care; babies and children horribly butchered for no cause;
even the right to vote attacked; pornography booms; a dreadful arsenal built
(for whom?); our military has surrendered US to our enemies; and thousands
of Americans murdered and the cause covered-up, resulting in a multi-billion
dollar insurance claim for a Jewish syndicate and a murderous war for
Zionism. 

Since 1980, a naïve America has been overwhelmed by Zionism. Israel
boasts "We control America and they know it". Israeli policy is automatically
Washington policy. A minority of less than 4% of the people has moved into
so many positions of power and influence in government, industry,
education, finance, communications and professional associations. They
monopolize or dominate huge industries like merchandising, banking and
finance, real estate, television, newspapers, movies, book publishing,
magazines, telecommunications and computers from which they have
amassed fabulous fortunes. 

They head the most prominent foundations, the most prestigious universities
and the wealthiest corporations. They merge vast banking and corporate
enterprises, narrowing immense wealth into fewer and fewer hands. They
already own or control much of the wealth of the nation. In the 1990's Jews
headed: State, Defense, Treasury, Federal Reserve, World Bank, CIA, and
on and on. The American people were forced to give up their standard of
living for Israel but we fund benefits in Israel not available in America; its
debts are forgiven; its brutal murder of American sailors overlooked. When a
Jew, Klinghoffer, is murdered Washington declares war, when a Gentile,
Rachel Corrie, is murdered Washington yawns. The Washington caused
massacre of a million Rwandans merited only a few cynical words. Billions
in failed Jewish speculations in Mexico rescued using public money; billions
in untaxed Zionist foundations support Zionist causes; immigrant Russian
Jews enjoy benefits tailored for them alone; destructive frauds, swindles and
tax evasions are condoned. Across the land, shrine after shrine is dedicated
at public expense to the Zionist "H" Myth while the enslavement and
oppression of tens of millions of Americans for centuries is unmentionable as
well as the slaughter and imprisonment of its indigenous people. The Passion
of Christ condemned, Schindler's List exalted. The Senate has banned
anti-Zionism on campus. No other sect enjoys so many preferences or such
superiority. Zionism is politics not religion; however, most Jews are Zionists
and mix the two. Political opposition is always maligned and crushed as
anti-Semitism. What's going on?? 

It is no coincidence that these events were detailed more than a century ago
in the best-kept secret in America, The Protocols of the Members of the
Elders of Zion. It's all there in this New Testament from the Abyss of
Zionism. What's going on is the fulfillment of the Protocols in America. Jews
discredit the Protocols as anti-Semitic forgery and/or fiction. But are they?
They seem more like the Pentagon Papers of their time. They are no fiction
but the fearsome product of a superlative mind, intelligent, learned,
sophisticated and invisible (James Rothschild?), an evil amalgam of
Machiavelli, Hobbs, Kafka, Huxley and Orwell. America ignores the
Protocols at its great peril. One newspaper said of the author, 

"Whosoeverconceived them possessed a knowledge of human nature, of
history, and of statecraft which is dazzling in its brilliant completeness, and
terrible in the objects to which it turns its power. It is too terribly real for
fiction, too well sustained for speculation, to deep in its knowledge of the
secret springs of life for forgery." 

Who are the Elders of Zion? Zionism originated in a people called Khazars
from southern Russia who adopted Judaism in the 7th century and refer to
the descendants of Israelites as our "lesser brethren" who cannot be trusted.
(Memo to Spectorum: Zionism is anti-Semitism; BAN IT.) Father Coughlin
named some of the Elders on 1930's radio: 
"Baruch, the Rothschilds in Europe, the Lazzares in France, the Warburgs,
the Kuhn-Loebs, the Morgans and the rest of that wrecking crew whose God
is gold, whose emblem is the Red Shield [Rothschild] of exploitation. This
nation has permitted a small group of men the privilege of making money,
thereby CONTROLLING THE FLOW OF WEALTH." 

Zionists stigmatized him with the usual "anti-Semitism" and he was removed
from the air. But the Protocols confirm him. 

Winston Churchill said, "This movement among the Jews is not new. This
world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civiliza-tion and for the
reconstitution of societyhas been steadily growing." 

The Protocols are the manual of a centuries old conspiracy to achieve world
rule, where goyim (non-Jews) are "slaves" and "livestock cattle". The idea is
to create such misery that mankind will welcome the "tranquility" of the
despotic rule of Zionism. It is a treatise on malevolence and inhumanity. It is
the Conspiracy of all conspiracies. The Protocols set a time-table of about
100 years and TIME IS UP! 
Let US cut open this "rotten apple" and look at the worms: Assorted phrases
from Sergyei Nilus' 1905 book, as translated by Victor Marsden (available
on the internet), keeping in mind the first few paragraphs of this article. 

WE ARE THE SYMBOLIC SNAKE; IT IS FROM US THE
ALL-ENGULFING TERROR PROCEEDS. WE WILL EXHAUST
HUMANITY WITH DISSENSION, HATRED, STRUGGLE, ENVY,
TORTURE, STARVATION, INOCULATIONS OF DISEASES, WANT.
WE HAVE NO RIVALS IN DRAWING UP PLANS OF POLITICAL
ACTIONS WHILE WE HAVE KEPT OUR SECRET ORGANIZATION
IN THE SHADE. BEFORE US IS A PLAN FROM WHICH WE
CANNOT DEVIATE WITHOUT RUNNING THE RISK OF SEEING
THE LABOUR OF MANY CENTURIES BROUGHT TO NAUGHT. 

THE GOYIM WILL TAKE REFUGE IN OUR COMPLETE
SOVEREIGNTY IN MONEY AND ALL ELSE BUT IF WE GIVE
NATIONS A BREATHING SPACE THE MOMENT WE LONG FOR
MAY NEVER ARRIVE. THE NATIONS BEG US FOR PEACE BUT WE
SHALL GIVE THEM NO PEACE UNTIL THE GOYIM SHALL BOW
DOWN BEFORE US. WE SHALL CRUSH THEM WITH
IRRESISTIBLE POWER. WE MUST USE GREAT CUNNING AND
PENETRATION. THERE IS NO STATE WHERE THERE EXISTS FOR
US WHAT GOY STUPIDITY CALLS STATE SECRETS. THEY
CANNOT COME TO EVEN AN INCONSIDERABLE AGREEMENT
WITHOUT OUR SECRET HAND IN IT. THE POLITICAL HAS
NOTHING IN COMMON WITH THE MORAL. OUR RIGHT LIES IN
FORCE. [The theme of the Protocols is the malignant guile of Zionism,
obsessed with secrecy, invisibility and conspiracy.] 

WE HAVE TOUCHED WITH CRAFT AND DELICACY THE
INSTITUTIONS OF THE GOYIM AND HOLD THE ENDS OF THE
SPRINGS THAT MOVE THEM. WE HAVE LEAD THE PEOPLES
FROM ONE DISENCHANTMENT TO ANOTHER; THE FRENCH
REVOLUTION WAS WHOLLY THE WORK OF OUR HANDS; WE
ARRANGED FOR DARWINISM, MARXISM AND NIETZSCHEISM.
OUR POWER WILL BE INVISIBLE UNTIL NO ONE CAN
UNDERMINE IT. WE HAVE OUR HANDS IN THE
ADMINISTRATION OF THE LAW, THE CONDUCT OF ELECTIONS
AND INTO THE PRESS. 

WE MUST SECRETLY COMPEL GOVERNMENTS TO ACT IN THE
DIRECTION OF 
OUR PLAN. WE MUST CREATE FERMENTS, DISCORDS AND
HOSTILITY, WE HAVE THE POWER; WE MUST NOT STOP AT
BRIBERY, DECEIT AND TREACHERY TO ATTAIN OUR END. WE
HAVE ALWAYS WORKED ON THE CASH ACCOUNT, CUPIDITY,
MATERIAL NEEDS FOR IT HANDS OVER THE WILL. WE SHALL
MULTIPLY NATIONAL FAILINGS, PASSIONS, SOW DISCORD IN
ALL PARTIES, DISLOCATE ALL COLLECTIVE FORCES; CREATE
BY ALL THE SECRET METHODS OPEN TO US AND WITH GOLD,
WHICH IS ALL IN OUR HANDS, A UNIVERSAL ECONOMIC CRISIS
AND THROW MOBS OF WORKERS IN THE STREETS [the Great
Depression]. 
WE SHALL CREATE AN INTENSIFIED CENTRALIZATION OF
GOVERNMENT, DIVISION INTO PARTIES; RAISE WAGES BUT AT
THE SAME TIME THE PRICES OF NECESSARIES.
INTENSIFICATION OF ARMAMENTS [the Arms Race] AND
INCREASE OF POLICE FORCES ARE ESSENTIAL [Home Security]; IT
IS IMPORTANT TO DISARM THE PEOPLE [like California, the Zionist
"Flagship State"]. WE WILL RESPOND TO OPPOSITION BY WAR; WE
SHALL SHOW OUR STRENGTH WITH THE GUNS OF AMERICA. IF
THE GOYIM RISE UPON US, THEIR CAPITALS WILL BE BLOWN
INTO THE AIR. SURELY WE SHALL NOT FAIL WITH SUCH
WEALTH AND ALL THAT EVIL WE HAVE HAD TO COMMIT FOR
SO MANY CENTURIES. 

OUR KINGDOM WILL BE A MAGNIFICENT DESPOTISM [California
enacted Hair Crimes], A DICTATORSHIP THAT WILL SUBDUE ALL
THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. THE BEST RESULTS IN
GOVERNING ARE BY VIOLENCE AND TERROR. ONLY FORCE
CONQUERS IN POLITICAL AFFAIRS; OUR ABSOLUTISM WILL BE
IN ALL THINGS [Schwartzenegger]. ALL THE MONEY IN THE
WORLD WILL BE IN OUR HANDS [by consolidations of banks and
financial institutions]. WE SHALL HAVE TO ERASE "FREEDOM" FROM
THE LEXICON OF LIFE, FREEDOM OF THE PRESS, THE RIGHT OF
ASSOCIATION, FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE, THE VOTING
PRINCIPLE AND MANY ANOTHER MUST DISAPPEAR FOREVER
FROM THE MEMORY OF MAN. THE LAWS WILL WITHDRAW ONE
BY ONE ALL THE LIBERTIES PERMITTED BY THE GOYIM [this is
all happening today in America]. 

WE SHALL DESTROY THE FAMILY [in California, the children "belong"
to the state, parents are caretakers]. WE SHALL PROTECT OUR OWN.
LAW WILL ABOLISH OR CREATE ONLY THAT WHICH IS
DESIRABLE FOR US. EVERYTHING WILL BE SETTLED BY
FIGURES. HE WHO WISHES TO KEEP HIS PLACE MUST BLINDLY
OBEY. JUDGES WILL DECIDE AS WE DICTATE [in California, water
pistols are judged "firearms"]; OUR SOLUTIONS SHALL BE FINAL
WITHOUT APPEAL. THE KING WILL BE ABLE TO CONFISCATE
ALL SUMS OF EVERY KIND 

WE SHALL SLAY WITHOUT MERCY ALL WHO OPPOSE US [JFK];
ONE-THIRD OF OUR SUBJECTS WILL KEEP THE REST UNDER
OBSERVATION. WE SHALL ARRANGE A SIMULATION OF
DISORDERS, A PRETEXT FOR SURVEILLANCE FROM THE
POLICE; OUR POWER DEMANDS CRUEL PUNISHMENTS FOR THE
SLIGHTEST INFRINGEMENT [the children of Waco, Rachel Corrie]. 

GOY CATTLE HAVE BEEN ATTRACTED BY US INTO THE "SHOW
ARMY" OF MASONIC LODGES. WE SHALL MULTIPLY MASONIC
LODGES IN ALL COUNT-RIES, ABSORB ALL WHO ARE
PROMINENT AS OUR PRINCIPAL MEANS OF INFLUENCE AND
THEN DISBAND AND SEND INTO EXILE THE GOY MASONS WHO
HAVE SERVED US FOR THEY KNOW TOO MUCH. 

THE PRESS IS A GREAT FORCE, IT HAS FALLEN INTO OUR
HANDS [today this includes television, radio, movies, newspapers,
magazines, books]. PEOPLE LIVE AND ARE GUIDED BY IDEAS. THE
PRESS IS NEEDED FOR OUR PURPOSE, WE GAIN THE POWER TO
INFLUENCE WHILE REMAINING IN THE SHADE, THE PRESS WILL
DISTRACT THOUGHT, OFFER GOYIM NEW DIRECTIONS FOR
THOUGHT THROUGH PERSONS NOT SUSPECTED OF
SOLIDARITY WITH US. THIS MUST IN NO WISE BE SUSPECTED
BY THE PUBLIC. THE PUBLIC HAS NOT THE SLIGHTEST IDEA
WHAT ENDS THE PRESS REALLY SERVES. THE GOY LOOK UPON
THE EVENTS OF THE WORLD THROUGH THE COLOURED
GLASSES WE ARE SETTING ASTRIDE THEIR NOSES. [Most
Americans never heard of AIPAC and JINSA, Washington's secret
government.] WE WILL DISTRACT THE GOYIM WITH
AMUSEMENTS, PASSIONS AND SPORTS; WE SHALL ENGAGE
THEM IN SHAM CONTROVERSIES AND DISTRACT THEIR MINDS
TOWARDS SHAM FIGHTS OF EMPTY ELOQUENCE. 

WE SHALL BRIDLE THE PRESS WITH A TIGHT CURB. ALL NEWS
IS RECEIVED BY A FEW AGENCIES; THESE WILL BE OURS AND
GIVE PUBLICITY TO ONLY WHAT WE DICTATE. WE SHALL
EXCITE OR TRANQUILIZE THE PUBLIC MIND, PERSUADE OF
CONFUSE, PRINTING NOW TRUTH NOW LIES, FACTS OR THEIR
CONTRADICTIONS. THIS HAS BROUGHT THOUSANDS OF GOYIM
INTO OUR LIVESTOCK CATTLE. [Mind control and public opinion also
permeate the Protocols.] OUR PRESS WILL CONVICT [condemn]
STATE AFFAIRS, RELIGIONS, THE GOYIM, ALWAYS USING THE
MOST UNPRINCIPLED EXPRESSIONS TO LOWER THEIR
PRESTIGE IN THE MANNER WHICH CAN ONLY BE PRACTICED
BY THE GENIUS OF OUR TRIBE. WE SHALL FIGHT THEM BY
CRITICISM [Mel Gibson]. 

WE HAVE GOT OUR HANDS INTO EDUCATION AND TRAINING,
THE CORNER-STONES OF FREE EXISTENCE. WE SHALL ABOLISH
EVERY KIND OF FREEDOM OF INSTRUCTION AND CONFISCATE
TO OUR OWN USE THE LAST SCINTILLA OF INDEPENDENCE OF
THOUGHT WHICH WE HAVE FOR LONG PAST DIRECTED TO
IDEAS USEFUL TO US [the "H" Myth]. WE HAVE FOOLED AND
CORRUPTED THE YOUTH BY PRINCIPLES AND THEORIES
KNOWN TO US TO BE FALSE. WE HAVE CREATED A SENSELESS,
ABOMINABLE, FILTHY LITERATURE [pornography]. 

WE SHALL EMASCULATE THE UNIVERSITIES; THEIR OFFICIALS
AND PROFESSORS WILL HAVE DETAILED SECRET
PROGRAMMES FROM WHICH THEY WILL NOT DIVERGE BY ONE
IOTA. THE SYSTEM OF BRIDLING THOUGHT IS ALREADY AT
WORK IN THE SO-CALLED SYSTEM OF TEACHING ALSO IN
CLEVERLY COMPILED SCHOOLBOOKS. WE ARE RE-EDUCATING
THE YOUTH. WE SHALL EXTIRPATE FROM THE FACE OF THE
EARTH ALL EDUCATED GOYIM. 

IN OUR HANDS IS THE GREATEST POWER OF OUR DAY-GOLD;
IN TWO DAYS WE CAN PROCURE FROM OUR STOREHOUSES
ANY QUANTITY WE PLEASE. THE WHEELS OF STATES GO BY
THE ENGINE WHICH IS IN OUR HANDS AND THAT ENGINE IS
GOLD. WE HAVE SET UP THE ARISTOCRACY OF OUR CLASS,
THE ARISTOCRACY OF MONEY. WE SHALL ESTABLISH HUGE
MONOPOLIES, RESERVOIRS OF COLOSSAL RICHES. 

THE DESPOTISM OF CAPITAL IS IN OUR HANDS [Zionism financed
Morgan, Rockefeller and Harriman]. CAPITAL MUST BE FREE TO
ESTABLISH A MONOPOLY OF INDUSTRY AND TRADE; THIS IS
ALREADY BEING PUT INTO EXECUTION BY AN UNSEEN HAND
IN ALL QUARTERS OF THE WORLD. HUNGER CREATES THE
RIGHT OF CAPITAL TO RULE THE WORKER. THE
CONCENTRATION OF INDUSTRY IN THE HANDS OF
CAPITALISTS HAS DRAINED AWAY ALL THE JUICES OF THE
PEOPLE. TO COMPLETE THE RUIN OF GOY INDUSTRY WE
SHALL UNDERMINE THE SOURCES OF PRODUCTION AND MASK
IT UNDER GREAT PRINCIPLES OF ECONOMICS [free trade and
globalization]. WE SHALL BRING SPECULATION AND TRANSFER
INTO OUR HANDS ALL THE MONEY OF THE WORLD [through the
banking system]. THE GOLD STANDARD HAS BEEN THE
RUINATION OF THE STATES WHICH ADOPTED IT; IT CANNOT
SATISFY THE DEMANDS FOR MONEY SINCE WE HAVE REMOVED
GOLD FROM CIRCULATION [Federal Reserve secret "leases"]. 

INTEREST BEARING PAPER HAS BEEN SUGGESTED BY US TO
THE GOYIM BUT CANNOT BE CARRIED ON BY US. INSTEAD OF
TAXES FROM THEIR SUBJECTS THEY COME BEGGING TO OUR
BANKERS; THE TREASURIES OF THE GOY STATES ARE EMPTY;
ALL ARE BANKRUPT; STATES WERE MADE THE BOND-SLAVES
OF THE CAPITALISTS. [As Father Coughlin said, 

Our government has borrowed billions from the bankers for relief, fictitious
money. Our children must pay that with interest generation after generation.
We have mortgaged the United States to the bankers.] 

WE HAVE SO PRESENTED LOANS TO THE GOYIM THEY HAVE
SEEN THEM AS AN ADVANTAGE; WITH LOANS THE STATE BAILS
OUT THE COPPERS OF THE POOR TAXPAYER TO SETTLE
ACCOUNTS WITH THE WEALTHY. FOREIGN LOANS HAVE FED
US WITH THE MONEYS OF THE GOYIM TWICE, THRICE AND
MORE TIMES OVER; ADMINISTRATORS HAVE MADE THEIR
COUNTRIES DEBTORS TO OUR TREASURIES TO AMOUNTS
IMPOSSIBLE TO PAY. WHAT FINANCIAL DISORDER
NOTWITHSTANDING THE ASTONISHING INDUSTRY OF THEIR
PEOPLE. 

ECONOMIC CRISES HAVE BEEN PRODUCED BY US BY THE
WITHDRAWAL OF MONEY FROM CIRCULATION. [This single
sentence is all-important. In America, such crises occurred in 1873, 1883,
1893, 1907 paving the way for the Warburg (Zionist) Federal Reserve. What
was the purpose of 1929? To destroy the growing financial power of larger
minorities? Father Coughlin again, 

From the Federal Reserve the word went out to cut down on credit. Tens of
billions of loans were called. It was impossible; there were only Five Billions
of currency money [and no credit]. A depression arose, homes and farms
and industries were confiscated all over the country.] 

[Author's note: You will not find this plausible explanation, confirmed by the
Protocols, in any encyclopedia or textbook. Today, untaxed trillions of
offshore "reservoirs of colossal riches" target and inflate an economy by
rapid expansion of credit (or speculation) and then collapse it by withdrawal.
The Asian Crisis was "wholly the work" of Zionism to destroy a currency
and the welfare of hundreds of millions of people.] 

WE REPLACED THE RULER BY A CARICATURE-A PRESIDENT, A
MINE WE LAID UNDER THE PEOPLES. WE SHALL ARRANGE
ELECTIONS OF PRESIDENTS WHO WILL BE AGENTS FOR OUR
PLANS [Wilson, Johnson]. THE ADMINISTRATORS OF THE GOYIM
SIGN PAPERS WITHOUT READING THEM AND SERVE FOR
MERCENARY REASONS. WE SHALL CHOOSE ADMINISTRATORS
FOR THEIR SERVILE OBEDIENCE, PAWNS IN THE HANDS OF OUR
ADVISORS [Warburg, Brandeis, Baruch, Morganthau, Kissinger,
Greenspan]. A DEADLOCK WILL FINALLY DISORGANIZE THE
COUNTRY. 

THE PRESIDENT WILL INTERPRET THE LAWS AND ANNUL
THEM WHEN WE SO INDICATE; NO ONE ELSE SHALL DIRECT
THE FORCE OF LEGISLATION. WE SHALL TAKE THE RIGHT TO
MAKE NEW OR CHANGE EXISTING LAWS, EVEN DEPARTURES
FROM THE CONSTITUTIONAL WORKING. WE SHALL INVEST
THE PRESIDENT WITH THE RIGHT TO DECLARE WAR,
JUSTIFYING IT BY THE DEFENSE OF THE CONSTITUTION. THEY
WILL FOLLOW THE FLAG WHICH WE HANG OUT FOR THEM
[Swastika or Stars and Stripes]. 
IT IS INDISPENSABLE FOR US TO UNDERMINE ALL FAITH, TO
TEAR OUT THE PRINCIPLE OF GODHEAD AND PUT IN ITS PLACE
MATERIAL NEEDS [on the cover of a national journal "Greed is Good"];
WE HAVE ROBBED THEM OF THEIR FAITH IN GOD WHILE WE
ALL THE WHILE HAVE KEPT OUR SECRET ORGANIZATION IN
THE SHADE; WE HAVE SET ONE AGAINST ANOTHER, RELIGIOUS
AND RACE HATREDS IN THE COURSE OF TWENTY CENTURIES;
WE MUST SWEEP AWAY ALL OTHER FORMS OF BELIEF. 

WE HAVE FOR LONG PAST DISCREDITED THE PRIESTHOOD OF
THE GOYIM AND RUINED THEIR MISSION ON EARTH; ONLY
YEARS DIVIDE US FROM THE COMPLETE WRECKING OF THAT
CHRISTIAN RELIGION [Catholicism]. WE SHALL SET CLERICALS
INTO SUCH NARROW FRAMES TO MAKE THEIR INFLU-ENCE
RETROGRESSIVE [the Catholic Church is under constant media assault in
America]; THE FINGER OF AN INVISIBLE HAND SHALL POINT TO
THE PAPAL COURT AND DESTROY IT; THE KING OF THE JEWS
WILL BE THE POPE OF THE UNIVERSE. 

ANTI-SEMITISM IS INDISPENSABLE TO US FOR THE
MANAGEMENT OF OUR LESSER BRETHREN, THIS MATTER HAS
FORMED REPEATED DISCUSSIONS AMONGST US. UNTIL THERE
IS NO RISK IN TRUSTING OUR BROTHER JEWS WE SHALL PUT
RESPONSIBLE POSTS IN THE HANDS OF PERSONS WHOSE PAST
AND REPUTATION ARE SUCH THAT, IF DISOBEDIENT, THEY
WILL FACE CRIMINAL CHARGES OR DISAPPEAR [so, Zionists prefer
criminal types to "real" Jews; another memo to Spectorum: Zionism is
anti-Semitism, BAN IT, Zionist pawn]. 

THE GOYIM ARE SHEEP AND WE ARE THEIR WOLVES AND YOU
KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE WOLVES GET HOLD OF THE
FLOCK. THESE GOYIM, TIGERS IN APPEARANCE, HAVE THE
SOULS OF SHEEP AND THE WIND BLOWS FREELY THROUGH
THEIR HEADS; WE ARE INTERESTED IN THE KILLING OUT OF
THE GOYIM. EACH VICTIM ON OUR SIDE IS WORTH A
THOUSAND GOYIM [or a million Africans]. THEIR EYES ARE OPEN
BUT SEE NOTHING. FROM THIS IT IS PLAIN THAT NATURE HAS
DESTINED US TO RULE THE WORLD. WE ARE PREPARING THE
KING DESPOT OF ZION AS THE PATRI-ARCH OF THE WORLD.
THE PEOPLE WILL ACKNOWLEDGE HIS AUTOCRACY WITH
APOTHEOSIS [worship] AND BLINDLY EXECUTE HIS DICTATES;
THEY WILL REJOICE THAT WE HAVE REGULATED EVERYTHING
IN THEIR LIVES. 
(End Protocols) 

[Note: Historians will call this century the century of Zionism, Capitalism and
War (World War I, Kerensky, the Russian Revolution, the Crash of 1929,
the Great Depression, Hitler, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Rwanda,
the Asian Crisis) and a Hundred Million Dead.] 

AMERICAN PROTOCOLS OF 2004: 

1. Flush all Republicans and Zionists out of government 
and destroy the Republican Party; 

2. Register or re-register in the Democratic Party for 
the primaries especially the coming "big" primaries, if you still can (above all
let US avoid politics as usual, Democrat vs. Republican, it's a Zionist trap); 

3. Any Democratic incumbent who unlawfully ceded their 
war powers to the president (mine did) should be flushed; 

4. Absent a miracle the White House is lost to Zionism, 
let US concentrate on a "patriotic" Congress (Zionism secretly schemes to
totally dominate the Democratic Party-with money); 

5. Vote for more women and the "other minorities" who 
are largely un-represented, African Americans, Asian Americans and Latino
Americans, not traitors; 

6. Demand that the Senate, Federal Reserve, CIA and IMF 
are abolished; 

7. End the latest Protocol "war" and pay reparations to 
the victims and their governments and end the Israeli Dole; 

8. Tax (not borrow) the "reservoirs of colossal riches" that 
are so dangerous to US by an annual 50% "Peace Tax" on all personal
wealth, income and property in excess of $5 Millions and remove all taxes
from wages under $50,000; 

9. Turn off all TV news shows, they are the principal means 
of Zionist mind control and brainwashing; 

10. And, for Heaven's sake, boycott Zionism. 

When Zionist zillions inundated Russia a decade ago and bought up
everything for a fraction of its value, prices escalated (gouging), reducing the
Russian standard of living by one-third. Now the vast Russian oil fields turn
out to be secretly owned by Jakob Rothschild. (Was there always a secret
monopoly of world oil?) Is the "Supreme Lord of the Universe" confidently
coming out of the "shade? Is this the Advent of the anti-Christ? Did Waco
and Rachel Corrie herald the Dark Ages of Zionism? Look at your children,
do you see Zionist slaves and cattle? Zionists do. There are so many of us
and so few of them but they have all the money!

A forgery and/or fiction by

Note: The author has written internet articles which appear on Serendipity.li
and Rense. For a half century he puzzled over the causes of the many wars,
depressions, crises and crashes, inflation of prices and taxes, social disorder.
Like John Locke's ship, we always steered towards some secret Algiers:
Humanity always suffering for the profit of the very few. The Protocols
solved the puzzle. 


Note - Rense.com has long presented both sides of the argument for and
against the validity of the Protocols. Many argue it doesn't matter whether
they are hoaxed or not because the current worldwide geopolitic reflects
them perfectly on many key issues. For the side of the argument that the
Protocols are a literary hoax, please see the following:

The Protocols - A Forgery 


Comment 
From Dennis Anderson 
3-19-4 


The article 'The Protocols And You' by Donald Cassidy presents some good
information on the past and current activities of the Zionist movement. 

However, the author goes to the edge a bit by presenting also what appears
to be his own approach for fighting the Zionist situation under the title
'American Protocols Of 2004.' While most of the steps he lists in the latter
'Protocols' appear sound, I feel he strays from the point of the divide and
conquer philosophy contained within the very Zionist Protocols he cites. 

I specifically refer to his step number one, "Flush all Republicans and
Zionists out of government. By stating this, Mr. Cassidy leaves an incorrect
impression that Republicans and Zionists are lock stepping together, and
perhaps even one and the same, while the Democrats are free of such
infestation. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The wide sweeping
tentacles of Zionism are to be found in all party lines, the Democratic Party
very much included. 

In fact, Mr. Cassidy plays right into the hands of the Zionists by pitting party
against party with step number one. That is what the 'party' system is meant
to do! It keeps the 'voters' at each other's throats through trumped up
political philosophies, issues and administrations while the real monster, that
is to say the worldwide Zionist banking, industrial and war machine,
continues daily to get away with serious and ongoing crimes against
humanity. 

The Zionist Protocols confirms everything I've written here in no uncertain
terms. The funny thing is, Mr. Cassidy appears to recognize in his step
number two the Democrat vs. Republican Zionist "trap" yet fell hook, line
and sinker into it in his creation of step number one! To remain outside of
that trap we must set our sights beyond the political party angle. Rather, go
for the throats behind that one power collective that controls ALL political
parties. That is where the real filth is located. 

While I feel Mr. Cassidy,s step number seven is an absolute must, a total
and complete end to funding Israel in any way whatsoever, his steps six and
eight would be better served with an addition to each. For step six I suggest
we add the IRS. Simply get rid of it. For step eight, under a totally new
reconstruction of our taxation system, let's add to that step a national sales
tax based solely on what we buy rather than what we earn. Let the super
rich taxation plan as outlined in step eight stay as suggested, but as a form of
surtax on top of the national sales tax. 

There are two more step that should be added to the American Protocols. 

Let,s turn the big buck lobbying industry on its heels while at the same time
make it possible for anyone to be able to run for and gain office rather than
only the rich or those funded by the rich. Finally, let's revise the entire voting
system of America in such a way that electronic methods are eliminated and
replaced by a new fail safe system of hand-written balloting. 

Otherwise, with the above changes made, I am all in favor of Mr. Cassidy's
American Protocols of 2004. So now the question is how in hell do we go
about getting all of this accomplished? And, is there still enough time to do
it? The noose is already feeling pretty tight.

Beware 'BLACK FARMERS Agriculturalist' scam
PHIL MULKINS World Action Line Editor
03/18/2004
Tulsa World (Final Home Edition),
Page A2 of Action Line, News 
View in Print (PDF) Format

What do you know about the "Black Farmers
Agriculturalist Association," its petition and its
request for $100 dues to join a suit to collect 
slave reparations? -- M.T., Tulsa.


The Better Business Bureau has received many phone
calls recently on the "BLACK FARMERS Agriculturalist
Association" in Covington, Tenn.

It has been targeting this area with a questionnaire,
an application and asking for $100. The Bureau urges
extreme caution with this "application" 
as the organization is a mystery to the Bureau. 

A report from the Better Business Bureau of the
Mid-South, Memphis, says the Association operates out
of a post office box in Covington, Tenn.

Bureau records show it is "soliciting $100 from
consumers and attempting to gain signatures for a
petition." 

The bureau has requested basic information about the
organization on two occasions, but the organization
has declined to provide any information.

As of Jan. 28, two phone numbers for the company play
recordings stating its voice mailbox is full; so
neither the Bureau nor Action Line has been unable to
contact the company by phone. 

Tulsa Bureau President and Chief Executive Officer
Rick Brinkley said "Bureaus around the country are
reporting large numbers of inquiries on this
organization. 

However, the company will not respond to information 
requests. We have received copies of the its materials
and questionnaire asking if people feel they have ever
been discriminated against." 

While many might respond "yes" to such questions, the
material makes it clear the organization will "only
send the responses of dues-paying members to its
attorney" -- apparently for inclusion in "Pigford v. 
Veneman (formerly known as Pigford v. Glickman), a
class action lawsuit brought by African American
farmers who alleged the USDA discriminated 
against them, based on race, in its farm credit and
non-credit benefit programs. April 14, 1999, the court
approved a consent decree -- ending the case." 

The material Brinkley obtained says the ssociation "is
working on behalf of black citizens of the United
States to get a previous lawsuit reopened against the
USDA. The USDA has over $11 billion of our
forefathers' money waiting to be shared to all black
citizens of the United States. But it's locked away. 

Two years ago people misinformed the public 
and said only BLACK FARMERS were eligible to apply for
the money but that was not the case. Unfortunately,
for the general black public, we did not know the
exact truth and time to file, and the deadline to mail
in the application was upon us.

Only now are we given the truth about the lawsuit
which requires the petition to reopen. That's where
the association comes in -- to finish giving out to
the black citizens their '40 acres and a mule' --
reparation money due to our forefathers who is now 
dead and gone, for their sweat and labor." 

The Portland Office for the BLACK FARMERS Settlement
said the deadline for class inclusion was Oct. 
12, 1999.

The USDA Web site -- www.usda.gov/da/status.htm --
offers a case summary and figures on the $650 million
payout.

Mr. Burrell should first the history of his new
organization and explain his prior efforts with the
BFAA parent organization, maybe he can begin from the
beginning and then go there... to where he is today. 

Why the City of Compton?

On the heals of National Agriculture Day, Mr. Burrell
is in the halls of the City of Compton.

Why was he not in Sacramento for California Ag Day and
assisting us to become a greater part of the 100
billion dollar Ag industry in California.

Why bring additional potential corruption to the City
of Compton?

http://www.bjmjr.com/bfaa/pr_grant7602.htm

The City of Compton should not embrace Mr. Burrell nor
his actions with BFAA, Inc. my feeling is that it
could bring additional embarrassment and unnecessary
damage to the reputation of the City of Compton. 

If the City of Compton chooses to support the notion
of shaddy business transactions and poor judgements of
the former Tennessee Chapter of BFAA, now know as
BFAA, Inc., it will not be for lack of information.

http://www.centredaily.com/mld/centredaily/news/7924329.htm

This effort to confuse the people cannot go
unchallenged here in California.

The California Chapter of BFAA will continue to work
on behalf of Black Farmers as we have a glorious past,
present and future here in the land of Queen Califia.

Tonight begins a wonderful week to honor the African
Founding Father of California.

http://www.ci.sf.ca.us/site/uploadedfiles/bdsupvrs/resolutions04/r0104-04.pdf

finally, I wish I could be with you Tuesay, March 23,
California State Senatory Kevin Murray, Transportation
Chair will here our bill ACR 131, honoring the African
Founding Father of California.

http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/bill/asm/ab_0101-0150/acr_131_bill_20030818_introduced.html

Black Farmers created Agricultual Export in the State
of California and our first Governor Peter Burnett,
"another Tennessee fella" proposed to export all Black
folk out of the State of California in his inagural
address...

Mr. Burrell, "a fella from Tennessee" should go back
home with the notion that California is named after an
African women, Queen Califia, and our he should study
the first Pan African Parliament election of Honorable
Sista Madam President Mongella, during California
Women's Military History Week.

Double Standards and 9/11 Inquiries

Where is Cynthia McKinney?

By GRAYSON CHILDS

Throughout the last few days I have watched and read the news in dismay.
The congressional hearing on the intelligence of Sept. 11th has failed to
call on the woman who was bold enough to ask the initial questions--Cynthia
McKinney.

The more I watch CSPAN and read the articles published in daily media
outlets, the more I become enraged. Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney
was the only elected official who had the guts to call for a congressional
probing into Sept 11th, as well as bring President Bush's war profiting
scheme to the light. She was called "looney", by her home state's junior
senator, Zell Miller, a "bitch" by Rep. Cass Ballenger of North Carolina, a
conspiracy nut, on a slippery slope and a host of other horrible and
embarrassing names. The media had a field day with her remarks, and in
doing so cost her the congressional seat in which she so boldly held.

While her name is still greatly mocked around the world, others gain the
undo credit for what she brought to light. Richard Clarke is held as hero,
Coleen Rowley was named as a person of the year, and others from John Kerry
to John McCain are all gaining from the hype of "what did the Bush
administration know and when did they know it."

Was Cynthia mocked, despised and rejected because she's African-American, a
woman, or something as small as being from the South? Are you telling me
there is a double standard against educated southern women of color who go
against voices of power--the good ole boy system, a system full of white
men who call all the shots? I think that is what you're telling me as well
as the rest of the world.

Someone needs to apologize to Ms. McKinney, who had the guts, boldness,
courage, wit and wisdom to recognize the wrong doings of an administration
and bring the issues to light.

Shame on all of you who fell in the drenches of ignorance, when prophecy
was being spoken.

The wealth of supermarkets is built on monopoly,
exploitation and restriction of choice
======================================

By George Monbiot 

The Guardian (UK)

Commentary 

Every year the list is the same, but every year it
still comes as a shock. Of the 10 richest people on
Earth, five of them have the same surname. It's not
Gates, or Murdoch, or Rockefeller, but Walton. They are
the heirs and trustees of the supermarket chain Wal-
Mart. And between them they are worth $100bn.

Considering how the media fawns on the ultra rich, we
hear remarkably little about them. Perhaps this is
because their position is rather embarrassing. The
company that enriches them trades on the idea that it
is the friend of the common man and woman, distributing
rather than concentrating wealth.

Over the past 20 years, two world-shaking social
transformations have taken place. The first, the
effective collapse of the proletariat as a political
force, has been well documented. The second, the
disappearance of the petty bourgeoisie as an economic
force, rather less so. The near-elimination of the
small businesses supplying and running the retail trade
is in some ways as consequential as the withering of
organised labour in heavy industry and the coal mines.
The global monopolisation of the sector has destroyed
the livelihoods of tens of millions of small
proprietors and their employees. But, because this
workforce was dispersed, the effects are rather harder
to see.

A couple of weeks ago, I went to buy some fruit trees.
I travelled to the world's most unprepossessing centre
of biodiversity: Langley, on the outskirts of Slough.
In the first half of the 20th century, most of London's
fruit and vegetables were grown round there. The farms
were supplied by specialist nurseries, which ensured
that Britain possessed a wider variety of temperate
fruit trees than any other nation. Two weeks ago, only
one of these nurseries was left. In the 1940s, JC
Allgrove's kept a thousand varieties of apple tree. It
is still listed in the directories as one of Britain's
great growers. But I was among its last customers.

Since the owner died two years ago, the business has
been run by a volunteer, Nick Houston. "There are bits
of ground here where no one's been for 20 years," he
told me. Recently, scrabbling beneath the ivy that now
covers the orchards, he found an apple he had never
seen before. It was a Baumann's Reinette: the
horticultural equivalent of a Fabergé egg. "But I had
no idea which bloody tree it had fallen off." Somewhere
in the nursery there should be two varieties - King
Harry and St Augustine's Orange - that even the
national fruit collection doesn't possess, but he
hasn't been able to find them yet. The land is to be
sold. Nick will salvage what he can and run a business
of his own, under the old name, to try to keep the rare
breeds growing.

He gave a one-word answer when I asked him what had
happened to the business. "Supermarkets." Today the
apples they buy are landing three miles from JC
Allgrove's. Heathrow's first runway was built on
strawberry farms and orchards. From the air, you can
still see derelict greenhouses and the parallel lines
on the land where fruit trees once grew. Richard Cox,
the man who bred the world's favourite apple, is buried
beside St Mary's Church in Harmondsworth, which will be
flattened if a third runway is built at Heathrow.

The superstores have used their buying power to force
the world's farmers to compete directly with each
other. Yesterday I spoke to a fruit grower in
Gloucestershire, who told me that to stay in the game
he must sometimes sell Coxes for as little as 57p a
kilo, less than his cost of production. The superstores
then sell the same apples for between £1.60 and £1.80.
They can buy them for even less from Chile, New Zealand
and South Africa, where labour is cheap and the farms
huge. This would present no threat to the growers here,
had the superstores not used their political power to
ensure that fuel costs stay low, and the docks and
airports keep expanding.

These companies are now strolling over the battlefield,
dispatching the last of the wounded. A few days ago,
Verdict Research published a report on the takeover of
Britain's cornershops. The big chains have moved into
the suburbs, where they are closing down the
competition. "Now smaller retailers can no longer hide
in the neighbourhood," Verdict reports. "A major shake-
out is inevitable."

Wal-Mart, which owns the British chain Asda, is now the
biggest company on Earth. In the last financial year it
took $245bn. It is successful partly because it is one
of the most ruthless employers in the western world.

In the US its sales clerks made an average of $13,861
in 2001, almost $800 below the federal poverty line for
a family of three. It is reported to have told new
employees how to apply for food stamps so that they
don't starve to death. In November, the police found
hundreds of illegal immigrants working as cleaners in
its stores. Some of them claimed that they were obliged
to work seven nights a week, without overtime,
insurance or benefits.

By forcing down the prices of the goods they buy, the
superstores encourage even more repressive conditions
in the companies that supply them. A recent study by
Oxfam documents the systematic abuse of workers in the
factories and farms that the superstores buy from. The
Waltons are so rich because others are so poor.

Beside this, the destruction of our horticultural
diversity looks trivial. But both are manifestations of
the same problem. As the superstores capture the
market, they shut down all our choices: about where we
shop, what we buy, who we work for. This, of course, is
what all monopolies seek to do.

We might have hoped that governments would treat them
as such. Indeed, there was a time when they did. In
1936, a federal anti-trust act was passed in the United
States to protect small shops from the Great Atlantic &
Pacific Tea Company. But governments were braver then.

In Britain, the Office of Fair Trading and the
Competition Commission seem to spend their time
devising new excuses. They continue to insist, for
example, that big stores and corner shops are separate
markets. Tesco might sell 25% of all Britain's
groceries, but it owns "only" 6% of the convenience
store market, so it should be allowed to expand in that
sector as it pleases. Last month the Office of Fair
Trading admitted that its voluntary code of practice,
which is supposed to protect farmers from the excessive
power of the superstores, is not working. By way of
remedy it proposed "more research".

In response, the MPs Andrew George and David Drew are
launching an early day motion in parliament today,
calling for a legally binding code of practice and a
supermarket watchdog. But Tony Blair seems to be as
frightened of the superstores as he is of the tabloid
press.

Nick couldn't find me any of the rarest varieties. He
sold me an Adam's Pearmain, a Charles Ross, a Sturmer
Pippin and a Cornish Aromatic. I would have bought the
names even if the trees weren't attached to them. If
they survive my clumsy handling and produce fruit, I
will regard every apple they produce as a minor act of
insurrection.

Why Britain's disappearing butterflies may be 
early victims of the sixth mass extinction
==========================================

By Steve Connor, Science Editor
Independent (UK)
19 March 2004

A milestone study of British birds,
butterflies and wild flowers has revealed the
strongest evidence yet that we are on the verge of a
mass extinction of global wildlife - the sixth mass
extinction in the history of life on Earth.

Scientists have accumulated the most detailed data to
date indicating that human activity is systematically
stripping the planet of its rich biodiversity. Nearly
a third of native British plants have significantly
decreased in 40 years, more than half of native birds
have declined in just two decades and nearly three-
quarters of British butterflies have fallen in numbers
in 20 years.

The study involved about 20,000 naturalists who
inspected the entire British landscape to compile
three atlases of native birds, butterflies and wild
plants. The information they gathered on the presence
or absence of more than 1,500 species in each 10-
kilometre (six-mile) square of countryside they
surveyed was compared directly with similar atlases
compiled 20 or 40 years previously.

In the relatively short period between the past and
present surveys, the scientists found a dramatic
decline of all three major groups of wildlife, with
one-third of all species studied disappearing from at
least one part of the UK they had occupied 20 or 40
years ago.

Jeremy Thomas, the leader of the study from the Centre
for Ecology and Hydrology in Dorset, said the decline
in butterflies was much worse than expected and far
worse than that of birds or plants. "The results are
appalling," he said. "In Britain 71 per cent of all
butterfly species have declined in the last 20 years.
"For the first time we can say that in the UK one
group of insects has suffered as badly as birds or
plants - this adds enormous strength to the hypothesis
that the world is approaching its sixth major
extinction event."

For more than a decade scientists have constructed
computer models of the rate at which species are going
extinct. Such models suggested a rate of anywhere
between a hundred to many thousands of times greater
than normal "background" rates. The information used
for these models was based on the fossil record and
what little was known about the rate of extinction
within certain well-studied but rather
unrepresentative groups, such as birds, fish, certain
mammals and palm plants. but Britain has good records
of wildlife that could help to fill many of the gaps.

"There are simply no data sets that approach this
detail and scale anywhere in the world," Dr Thomas
said.

"Even though UK butterflies are a tiny proportion of
the world's insects, and although the UK is a small
country, this is the first time it has been possible
to compare for any group of insects with the better
recorded groups [of animals and plants]. "The gloomy
result is that this group has indeed declined as
rapidly as plants and birds and it's because of this
we believe it provides tentative support of the sixth
mass extinction event," he added.

In 1999, Lord May of Oxford, the president of the
Royal Society and the Prime Minister's former chief
scientific adviser, estimated that the current
extinction rate could be up to 10,000 times higher
than it should be under normal circumstances. In a
speech at the time to the World Conservation Union, he
said: "This represents the sixth great wave of
extinction, fully compatible with the big five mass
extinctions of the geological past, but different in
that it results from the activities of a single other
species [humans] rather than from external
environmental changes."

Yesterday, Lord May said the latest study, showing a
28 per cent decline of native plants, a 54 per cent
decrease in abundance of native birds and a 71 per
cent decline of butterflies, supported the belief that
the world was on the cusp of another mass extinction.
"These are dismaying trends," he said. "If this
pattern holds more generally then estimates of global
extinction rates - which are mainly based on birds and
mammals - could err on the optimistic side."

The study, funded by the Natural Environment Research
Council and published in the journal Science, is
important because of its focus on a major group of
insects.

Dr Thomas said: "Past assumptions about extinctions
were based on just a small number of species studied,
mainly birds. But birds make up only 0.6 per cent of
all species on Earth. An obstacle to this conclusion
[of sixth mass extinction] is that really no reliable
information has existed for insects and insects
comprise over half the species on Earth.

"Butterflies have declined by an order of magnitude
greater than either birds or plants. This was an
unexpected result and it has implications both
nationally and globally. We tentatively suggest that
this provides the first objective support for any
group of insects for the hypothesis that the world is
experiencing the sixth major extinction event in the
history of life."

Since the last British butterfly survey 20 years ago,
two species - the large blue and the large
tortoisehell - have gone extinct in the UK. Of the 58
native species studied, the high brown fritillary has
declined most, down by 71 per cent.

Dr Thomas said this was probably because of changes in
the way woodlands are managed, which have made
woodland floors shadier places, hampering the survival
of caterpillars that live on forest violets. Lost of
habitat is the overwhelming reason for the decline of
both wild animals and plants.

The ploughing of heathland and the draining of
wetlands have resulted in complete destruction of some
habitats, while others have become degraded as a
result of other forms of human activity, such as
pollution.

Professor Georgia Mace, director of science at the
Institute of Zoology in London, who has studied
extinction rates, said that the latest study suggests
the problem could be far worse than previously
imagined. "According to the results here, we could be
seriously underestimating the severity of the
problem," Professor Mace said.

THE END OF THE WORLD, BACK THEN

Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction (about 65 million years
ago) The last mass extinction wiped out the dinosaurs
and nearly half of the main groups of marine animals.
Most likely cause was a collision with a large
asteroid.

Triassic extinction (199m to 214m years ago) Killed
nearly half of the major groups of marine wildlife.
Believed to have been caused by undersea volcanoes.

Permian-Triassic extinction (about 251m years ago) The
worst mass extinction, wiping out up to 95 per cent of
species. Probably caused by volcanic eruptions or an
asteroid.

Late Devonian extinction (about 364m years ago) Death
toll estimated to be 22 per cent of marine families
and 57 per cent of marine genera. No one knows why it
happened.

Ordovician-Silurian extinction (about 439m years ago)
Killed a quarter of marine families, including some
bizarre creatures such as Hallucigenia (right).
Believed to have been caused by a fall in sea levels
as glaciers formed, then rising sea levels as glaciers
melted.
