If I converted to Buddhism, does that make me Chinese? If I converted to Hinduism, does that make me Indian? When Khazarians (Turks) converted to Judaism in 740 BC and stole the true Negro Hebrew identity.... did that make them Hebrew? Well, the Jew World Order seems to think so.

Clinton should cut ‘how Israel is treating the Palastinians’ from DC speech — Podesta in email

Another landmark in the censorship of Palestinians from the official discourse: This John Podesta email at Wikileaks is getting a workout on twitter today. The Clinton campaign chairman urged speechwriters to take out a cue to “how Israel is treating the Palastinians” from a speech Hillary Clinton was giving to the Saban Forum in Washington the next day, December 6, 2015.

On page 16, in the graph beginning Many Americans feel a deep emotional connection…the paragraph is about Israel, but evokes how people feel about how Israel is treating the Palastinians. I think I’d cut or rework.

Clinton gave the speech that Sunday to the pro-Israel shop at Brookings, with Haim Saban on stage. There was only one reference in her speech to Palestinian suffering, and no indication of who causes it: “Israeli children have been killed as have Palestinian children.”

Clinton also said Palestinian leaders were inciting violence, and Israelis lived in the shadow of “terror.” The speech made one indirect reference to Israeli settlements, and promised just what Democrats have been promising lately— no unilateral action against Israel at the U.N.

Everyone has to do their part to create the conditions for progress by taking positive actions that can rebuild trust andby avoiding damaging actions including with respect to settlements and at the same time we should oppose any unilateral action at the United Nations.

As for the paragraph Podesta tagged, it was almost the end of Clinton’s speech. As she delivered it, the ending was a hymn to the miracle of Israel.

Many Americans feel a deep emotional connection with Israel. In its story we see some of our own and we see the story of all people who struggle for freedom and self-determination. We see a homeland for people long oppressed and a thriving economy that is a model for how innovation, entrepreneurship and freedom can delivery prosperity even in unforgiving circumstances. So we are two nations woven together. Lands built by immigrants and exiles seeking to live and worship in freedom, given life by democratic principles and sustained by the service and sacrifice of generations of patriots. Yet even with all this history, with all our common interests and shared values none of us can or should take our relationship for granted.

With every passing year we must tie the bonds tighter, reach out to the next generation to bring them with us and do the hard necessary work of friendship because there is a new generation in both countries today that does not remember that shared past. Young Americans who didn’t see Israel in a fight for survival again and again, young Israeli’s who didn’t see the United States broker peace at Camp David or kindle hope at Oslo or stand behind Israel when it was attacked, they are growing up in a different world and the future of our relationship depends on building new ties for a new time. Ben Gurion once said, “In Israel, in order to be a realist you must believe in miracles.”….

Former Obama national security adviser Tom Donilon also weighed in on the speech that Saturday, Dec. 5, saying that the pro-Israel talk had to be stronger:

At page 4–not sure that “take to the next level” is strong enough. Maybe something like  Take our already strong relationship and continue to deepen and perfect it. The US and Israel must always do the work necessary to ensure that we are the strongest of allies.”

The Clinton team did not incorporate his suggestions.

Podesta’s stance is consistent with the Clinton team’s all-hands-on-deck effort on the Democratic Party platform last summer, to make sure that it didn’t refer to “occupation” or “settlements.”

Oh, and this email came out last week: back in June 2015, ardent Israel supporter Haim Saban offered political counsel to the campaign braintrust.

She needs to differentiate herself from Obama on Israel .It can easily be done w/o criticizing the President,and this so that she can recapture the 11% [of the Jewish vote] lost between 2012 and 1992. We addressed this in our meeting yesterday: +speak strongly against anti-Semitism, and boycott. +reaffirm the US commitment to Israel’s security…

This is NOT a NY or California issue,,,,it is a Florida one.

Saban referred to Bill Clinton getting 80 percent of the Jewish vote in 1992, and Barack Obama getting 69 percent in 2012. But Obama had polled at 78 percent in 2008. It’s not a NY or California issue, because only in Florida are Jewish voters a swing vote.

Two weeks later Clinton released her letter to Saban attacking the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, and promising to work with Republicans to defeat BDS.

Thanks to Adam Horowitz, and Eli Clifton on twitter: “Podesta knows audience for HRC’s speech @ Saban Forum.”

Palestinians join Standing Rock Sioux to protest Dakota Access Pipeline

“Perhaps only in North Dakota, where oil tycoons wine and dine elected officials, and where the governor, Jack Dalrymple, serves as an adviser to the Trump campaign, would state and county governments act as the armed enforcement for corporate interests. In recent weeks, the state has militarized my reservation, with road blocks and license-plate checks, low-flying aircraft and racial profiling of Indians. The local sheriff and the pipeline company have both called our protest “unlawful,” and Gov. Dalrymple has declared a state of emergency.

It’s a familiar story in Indian Country. This is the third time that the Sioux Nation’s lands and resources have been taken without regard for tribal interests. The Sioux peoples signed treaties in 1851 and 1868. The government broke them before the ink was dry.

When the Army Corps of Engineers dammed the Missouri River in 1958, it took our riverfront forests, fruit orchards and most fertile farmland to create Lake Oahe. Now the Corps is taking our clean water and sacred places by approving this river crossing.”

Dave Archambault II, Chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, opinion piece in the NY Times

The Bakken formation in the northern United States and southern Canada is listed by US energy companies as one of the most promising options for national oil extraction, only surpassed in size by the oil fields in Alaska. The fields in North Dakota have been increasingly targeted for Bakken shale oil resources over the past years and they are quite familiar with public controversy: many of us remember the proposal of the infamous Keystone XL pipeline from 2008-2015, which was held in starkly low public opinion and struck down twice by the Obama administration. The proposed Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is not so different from its failed counterpart. It is mapped out for the same length of 1,172 miles as the Keystone XL and is targeting the same Bakken shale reserves for carry across the upper Midwest. The proposed $3.8 billion dollar DAPL would transport 570,000 barrels of crude oil per day across four states and cross the Missouri River itself. Parent company, Energy Transfer Partners is selling the pipeline as an economic booster, job creator, and sure investment for the future of the American people. Yet, who exactly are they referring to and who did they consult?

In the hills outside of Bismarck, North Dakota is the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, sitting along the banks of the Cannonball River, a tributary to the Missouri River. The pipeline construction sites can now be seen from the reservation, but many people here saw the pipeline coming before it even arrived. Just as Energy Transfer Partners and TransCanada failed to consult Native Tribes who live along the planned pipeline route and whose sacred lands, ancestral lands, and main water sources will be compromised by construction, there has not been a single tribal consultation around the proposed DAPL.

On April 1st , Sacred Stone Spirit Camp was erected on the bank of the Cannonball as a residence for water protectors, many whom came from within and off the reservation to stand against pipeline construction, call for water preservation, and call for recognition of the Federal treaties held with the Great Sioux Nation. What started out as a few hundred people quickly increased into the thousands, stemming the creation of the Oceti Sakowin and Red Warrior Camps on the other side of the Cannonball.

Protectors, support, and solidarity with Standing Rock are arriving from all edges of the world, many of them representing Indigenous Nations. My own caravan set out from California the 2nd week of September, preceding the Palestinian Youth Movement-USA Caravan that arrived soon after. As a contingent of Indigenous peoples in diaspora and recent settlers on Turtle Island, we attest that those standing at Standing Rock are standing for our present and future as well. We must in turn stand for each other against the present, future, and historical supremacies of erasure, the active legacy of settler-colonialism, and the viciousness of greed.

The pipeline company seems to remain unconcerned by the risk of polluting the reservation’s main water source, the highly probable degradation of land and sacred sights, and their trespass against a series of federal laws, and they are becoming increasingly reactionary to the flow of protectors in and out of the protector camps and surrounding areas. Just a few weeks ago, on September 28th, alarming images and video were released of armed police and military-style vehicles cornering protectors holding a prayer ceremony at a North Dakota construction site. The video portrayed the intensity on the ground and just how vulnerable the protector camps are without the gaze of the public eye:

“They are moving in”
“They won’t let us leave. They have locked us in on both sides”
“They’ve got their weapons drawn”
“They’ve got snipers on top of the hill”
“They’re blocking me on Facebook”
“They are arresting everyone now. Everyone is running”
“Share this far and wide”

The militarized forces blocked the only exit from the site to the public road before arresting 21 protectors. Other attendees posted photos of a crop dusting plane releasing a gas or chemical over the crowd. There has been little clarity thereafter of the makeup of the compound or the purpose of the spray.

The participation and planning of direct actions against DAPL construction, however, are continuing, with over 100 cars caravanning out to 5 construction sites the week of October 3rd and successfully halting construction for the day. Local authorities, private security hires, and the National Guard are seemingly disturbed by the presence of protectors as well, and are going out of their way to restrict access in and out of the protector camp area and intimidate newcomers. Indeed my own caravan coming from California was discouraged from approaching the reservation on the main road running from Bismarck, ND due to the checkpoints erected by North Dakota authorities. Our longwinded encounter with the highway patrol on our way to North Dakota — who insisted on not only checking all of our IDs followed by standing on the side of the highway outside of the car for an hour but also “passed our information down the line to the authorities higher-up” including suspicions of illegal activity — seemed to be motivated to dissuade an influx of supporters into the area. Stories of license plate checks, racial profiling of Native and ethnic drivers and/or car passengers, as well as arrests at roadblocks, circulated through the camps. Democracy Now, The New York Times, Huffington Post, and many independent news sources also reported these same tactics.

Why did I go in the first place? Because somewhere in the awkward power dynamic of being a US citizen, a non-native inhabitant of Turtle Island, and a Palestinian in the Diaspora, I saw the struggle for livelihood and culture, the struggle against settler-colonialism, the struggle to protect the sacred and maintain your own legitimacy, and the ever ominous force of erasure and historical amnesia. What I later saw at Standing Rock both embodied this and became bigger than it; as a Mohawk Elder said to me, “Without water, we [humans] are infertile dust”.

At a council fire in Oceti Sakowin during my stay, 280 Indigenous Nations were thanked for their support and representation at the camps. Movement leaders at Sacred Stone Spirit Camp have repeatedly stated that the gatherings of different Indigenous Nations near Cannonball, ND is the largest in the past 150 years on the North American continent.

The council fire sits at the mouth of the main entrance of Oceti Sakowin Camp, outlined by rows of flags representing many of the Indigenous Nations who have come to stand with Standing Rock. At the end of one of the rows is the Palestinian flag. Seeing it filled me equally with joy and sadness because it confirmed two things that I had pondered throughout the long drive from California to North Dakota: the first thought is that the power of collective resistance against greed and settler-colonialism is a mighty force. That thought was embodied by my joy to see a representation of will by the presently unseen Palestinian siblings who had come to take a stand against destructive powers. The second thought was embodied by sadness for, if the struggle for protection of water, culture, land, heritage, and livelihood is truly mirrored in Standing Rock and Palestine, then the struggle ahead is both vast and uncompromising.

I spoke with many inspiring protectors from the Maori in New Zealand, indigenous representatives from Ecuador, Canadian representatives from the Blackfoot Nation who were longtime activists in the “Idle No More” mobilizations, and Dakota/Lakota/Nakota from Standing Rock and the neighboring reservations among so many others.

From a variety of perspectives and personal stories, the same foundational message was repeated back to me: this stand isn’t just about standing for Native rights, it is about protecting the water, protecting our earth and securing the livelihood of our next generations. Water is life for all of us.

Myself and fellow members of the Palestinian Youth Movement–United States Branch had reflected on the latter thought when we authored our statement of solidarity “with the Standing Rock Sioux, the Great Sioux Nation and our other native sisters, brothers and siblings in the fight against the DAPL”, circulated on September 7th. Segments read:

“We condemn all forms of state violence against our First Nation siblings and denote that the undermining of their sovereignty and livelihood is a part of the continuing dialectic of settler-colonialism transnationally.

Since the arrival of settlers on Turtle Island, First Nations have resisted genocide and displacement. From seizure of land to reservations, from boarding schools to massacres, the state has done everything in its power to erase and eradicate First Nation peoples. Yet, they are still with us today and they continue to resist. Protecting their land, people, and future generations from the DAPL is a testament to their strength and resilience.


As Native communities face an ongoing genocide and continue to resist the imperialist settler-colonial regime of the United States, Palestinians are too experiencing a genocide and ethnocide within our homelands from the settler-colonial state of Israel.”

The comparisons are uncanny. I had spent most of the hours on the road to North Dakota contemplating the connections between the obstacles and oppressions facing those in Standing Rock and the obstacles and oppressions facing we Palestinians under occupation and apartheid. However, upon arriving at Standing Rock, I no longer just thought about the similarities, I felt them in my bones.

When protectors at Standing Rock asked me about what Palestinians experience in our own fight against settler-colonialism, oppression, and greed, I answered sometimes through the language of statistics. Yet, more often, I told them narratives of genocide, exile, delegimitzation, broken promises, and resounding resilience.

Sitting around a fire, burning sage and cedar wood, Darlene Meguinis of the Blackfoot Nation in Canada reflected on the beginnings of the Idle No More movement, in which she is still an active organizer. She told me: “Everything must start with prayer and ceremony, especially organizing.” She reminded me that the founders of Idle No More, elders Nina Waste, Jessica Gordon, Sheelah Mcleen, and Sylvia McAdams, had rooted the movement in ceremony. The result of doing so, Meguinis maintained, was to center the focus of the collective actions for change.

Native youth in the #NoDAPL Youth Council at Standing Rock reiterated similar ideas about DAPL actions. Two youth leaders recounted to me, “we are striving for the results that we want to see but are being directed by our ancestors. We are here, acting now, for our children.”

Intention and prayer surrounded much of the daily camp life and easily dispersed the tensions outside, even as the DAPL Company and National Guard helicopters flew low over the camps each morning, afternoon and night (something that pointedly reminded me of life in Palestine).

Some mornings along the bend of the Cannonball River, which delineates Oceti Sakowin/Red Warrior Camp from Sacred Stone Spirit Camp, Native artists reflected the beauty around them in paintings and art installations. One of the organizers was Albuquerque artist Monty Singer, whose picture is shown below.

The time set out to create art and music, to gather around fires and drum circles, to participate in prayer and ceremony with each other uplifted the vibrant energy of the camps and the people within them. We cheered, prayed and supported the direct actions as best we could every day; donations from across the U.S. and internationally flooded into the main entrance in the afternoons and community kitchens and donation booths ran 24/7 to maintain the swelling of protector numbers. Hundreds of people ebbed and flowed into the camps every single day.

The sheer power required to uphold the movement is sobering: in light of the failed injunction by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe against the US Army Corps of Engineers at the lower court level, a Federal Appeals court officially halted construction of the pipeline, underlining the same temporary hold parameters as the decree proposed on September 9th by the Department of Justice (DOJ). That hold applies solely within 20 miles on either side of Lake Oahe near the Missouri River.

Other locations on the planned pipeline route are still open for construction and, though direct actions at sites of DAPL construction have not wavered, they are increasingly receiving less and less media attention with increasingly severe charges being applied to protectors. For example, the 5 protectors who strapped themselves to bulldozers at an active DAPL construction site 100 miles down Hwy 94 from the reservation during my stay at Oceti Sakowin Camp were slapped with felony charges for “criminal trespassing”, the same charges outlined against Amy Goodman in her arrest warrant as a result of her coverage of the DAPL in early September (although her charges at the time constituted a misdemeanor and were thankfully dropped October 17th after a court hearing). Some of those arrested were even extradited back to their home states to face their charges from North Dakota in addition to preexisting protest charges in other states.

My last night in Standing Rock, I spoke with a woman by the name of “Terry”, a resident of Bismarck, ND. I asked her why I had met so few non-natives from the local area at Standing Rock. Her response was direct and had very little to do with the sheriff’s implemented checkpoints and roadblocks: “It is because of the media propaganda. For example, during the dog attacks, Bismarck news covered a worker’s injury at the site and the hospitalization of a guard. No one gave popular air time or writing space to cover the effects of the dog attacks on protectors.” She mentioned that an article in the conservative paper, Town Hall, soon after the attacks read: “So dogs were unleashed on these protestors. Good”. She and a few others from Bismarck came to the camps because they saw past the media pressure. “We understand that the fight for clean water and recognition of Native sovereignty affects everyone in the surrounding area”, she told me, which would become increasingly apparent if oil leakage wells up in the Bakken region.

In Geneva, on September 20th, Dave Archambault II, Chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, urged the UN Human Rights Council to stand with the tribe in opposing the DAPL project and advocate for the recognition of their sovereign rights, including the protection of water and sacred places. Protectors are remaining vigilant on and off site, many walking to pay respects to the graves of the Dakota/Lakota/Nakota ancestors that have been disturbed by construction.

Martina Looking Horse, a longtime writer from Cheyenne River Reservation, has been camping at Standing Rock for over a month. She told me that she and her family plan to stay until the pipeline is defeated but stressed that the conditions at camp are not easy to live under. The torrential rainstorms, the swings of hot and cold, and the impending North Dakota winter discourage many from staying longer than a few weeks. Yet, Looking Horse affirmed her belief that she and many others will carry on, with or without the support of mainstream media. The hope, she reaffirmed, is that the national and international people of conscience will continue to support in all the ways that they can, hold the US government accountable to their promises, and not forget that the protectors are still there taking a stand.

The day that I left, the PYM-United States Branch’s official caravan came into Oceti Sakowin, bringing supplies, people power, and small gifts for the tribal council as visitors to the land. They also read our statement at the tribal council fire and met many people, as I had, who stated how glad they were to see Palestinians supporting the front lines against movement suppression. The solidarity with Palestine for all of us who participated in caravans from PYM was overwhelming. What was supposed to be a few-day trip was extended into a week.

Inspired by the stories, the people, the call to our moral responsibility to protect each other and the water that keeps us alive, we hope to return back to Standing Rock and bring supplies for winter.

Friends of Sabeel North America also sent forward a statement of solidarity, in part remarking:

“we know that settler colonialism depends on the exploitation of land and natural resources to the detriment of indigenous communities…Today, we see you, the Sioux nation and members of the other 280 Native American tribes who have joined you to protect the water of the Missouri River and stop the Dakota Access Pipeline, taking a stand for all life, the embodiment of resilience. As the Israeli occupation continues, Palestinian land is stolen, ancient olive trees are uprooted, and blood is shed, your struggle inspires our work and we redouble our efforts to witness and nonviolently resist. We stand in full support of indigenous sovereignty and self-determination.”

The light of hope in Standing Rock is not fizzling out. Upon returning to the Bay Area, I came across many art builds and donation efforts, and have been seeing many more events publicized by friends and family in New York State, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida and Arizona.

Thanks to Caleb Duarte and the wonderful youth from Fremont High School in Oakland (recently arrived unaccompanied youth from Chimeltenango, Guatemala) who made this solidarity banner:

I remember thinking as I left Standing Rock to return to California: peoples suppressed by power and greed have strength when they rise together. There is a poignant uniting force through something as important as the world that sustains us.

The river was quiet when I left, with lots of green and tall grass on its banks. The river flats lay muddy and fertile, the slow current reflecting the sky day and night, the water turning pink and orange by sunset.

A water protector strapped to heavy machinery down the Hwy 94 shouted out, before being removed to jail,

“This pipeline is a pipeline to the past. We need to be building sustainable infrastructure for the future, not destructive unsustainable industries that hurt land, that hurt water, that hurt people. Everything is wrong about this pipeline… We’re here standing in solidarity with millions of people from around the world that are against this pipeline.” (via Unicorn Riot)

The collective call for justice is ringing loud and clear. Mni Wiconi –Water is life.

Terrific new book by Robert Worth has vital insights into the awful war in Syria

This site has regularly criticized certain New York Times reporters for their coverage of the Middle East. We are happy to break that tradition with enthusiasm for the work of Times correspondent Robert F. Worth, some of which has just appeared in a superb new book titled A Rage for Order: The Middle East in Turmoil from Tahrir Square to Isis.

Worth has spent years in the region, and his experience shines through in his first-hand reports and interpretations of the dizzying events in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia. He also has valuable material on Yemen, the most forgotten conflict in the whole region.

Arguably Worth’s best work in this outstanding book is his coverage of Syria. He is modest and self-effacing, but he must have risked his life for some of his reports. The armchair advocates for even deeper U.S. military intervention in the Syrian war should be required to listen to him.

A Rage for Order, by Robert Worth

A Rage for Order, by Robert Worth

Worth brilliantly centers his account of Syria’s collapse around two young women in the coastal town of Jableh, whom he got to know over time. Noura Kanafani is a Sunni Muslim, and Aliaa Ali is from the Alawite minority. When the story opens in 2011, the two are best friends, and they laugh at the idea that the first stirrings of more intense sectarianism could ever drive them apart. But by 2013, after years of growing violence, Noura and her family are in exile in Turkey, Aliaa has become a passionate defender of the Assad regime, and the two young women have bitterly ended their friendship. Worth has shown how the fighting causes sectarianism to explode, as unscrupulous leaders on all sides encourage the existing moderate prejudices to explode into armed hatreds, forcing everyone to choose sides.

By 2013, passions within Syria alone would have made a return to peace difficult. But Worth explains how the fighting was now internationalized: “. . . the Syrian war had spun outward and was drawing in almost every country in the region and many beyond it.” He adds, “There were thousands of rebels fighting in the name of jihad from more than a dozen countries, bankrolled by intelligence services and militias and zealots of every kind.”

Worth does not say what U.S. policymakers should do about Syria. But having just shown how violence promotes sectarianism and lasting bitterness, it is hard to see how he would then advocate more violence as any kind of answer.

The New York Times needs more reporters like Robert Worth. We respectfully suggest that the paper at some stage assign him to Israel/Palestine, where his skill and experience are sorely needed.

Israeli Defense Minister Implies Palestinian Genocide on the Way

Andrew Anglin
Daily Stormer
October 24, 2016


If I were the Jews, I would probably chill out on this just about now.

The Independent:

Israel’s Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman has said in an interview that any future hostilities between the Jewish state and Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip will be the last, “because we will completely destroy them”.

Mr Lieberman made the comments in a rare “hearts and minds” interview with Jerusalem-based Palestinian newspaper al-Quds, published on Monday, in which he insisted that all Palestinians have a duty to deter the Hamas movement from what he called its goal of destroying the Israeli state.

“As minister of defence, I would like to clarify that we have no intention of starting a new war against our neighbours in the Gaza Strip or the West Bank, Lebanon or Syria,” he said, while adding that ordinary Palestinians in both the Palestinian Authority-controlled West Bank and Hamas-run Gaza Strip must urge Hamas to “stop your crazy policies”.

“In Gaza, like the Iranians, they intend to eliminate the state of Israel … If they impose the next war on Israel, it will be their last. I would like to emphasise again: it will be their last confrontation because we will completely destroy them,“ he said.

The comments have sparked outrage on Palestinian social media platforms, particularly among those supportive of Hamas, with critics sending messages blasting the “media normalisation” of Israeli policy in the decision to interview Mr Lieberman, whom some dubbed a “murderer”.

“The conflict with the enemy isn’t only about power, it is also ideological and cultural… therefore, any type of normalisation with Israel must be forbidden,” one such commenter said.

The Jews have created a culture of “brown people are always victims” in White nations, then in their own nation, they’ve continued to slaughter brown people. They have created a backlash against their own selves.

And they should chill.

But they won’t chill.

One thing about the kikes: they have zero chill.

Church Attacks Hofer for Mentioning God

Andrew Anglin
Daily Stormer
October 24, 2016


Christianity has been so cucked-out it’s ridiculous.

How do these people explain that their religion launched the Crusades and conquered the entire world on boats?


Austria’s Protestant church criticized the far-right candidate for president on Monday for using the phrase “so help me God” on his campaign posters, saying his party’s anti-immigrant stance ran against Christian principles.

Norbert Hofer, the anti-immigrant Freedom Party’s (FPO)presidential hopeful, uses the line in the hope it will help persuade voters to make him the European Union’s first far-right head of state in a run-off election on Dec. 4.

The result of a previous run-off in May, which the 45-year-old eurosceptic narrowly lost to former Green Party leader Alexander Van der Bellen, 72, was annulled due to irregularities in counting postal ballots.

Hofer is a former Catholic turned Protestant who has said he would not swear in a female minister wearing an Islamic headscarf.

“God can not be instrumentalised for one’s own intentions or for political purposes,” the three branches of the Protestant churches in the Alpine republic said in a joint statement.

That statement itself is using Gof for political purposes, of course.

Austria is a traditionally Christian country where two-thirds of the 8.7 million population are professed Catholics and about four percent are Protestant.

While a spokesman for the Austrian Bishops’ Conference – the highest body of the Catholic church – said the church would not comment on Hofer’s campaign, the Protestant church said Hofer had misused Christianity for narrow political ends.

“We do not get involved in party politics, but if Christian principles are violated we have to take a…stand,” said Thomas Hennefeld, superintendent of the Protestant Reformed Church.

Hofer’s direct invocation of God for political purposes was the first of its kind in Austria for 10-15 years and was inappropriate given the FPO’s politics, Hennefeld said.

“We stand for a Biblical understanding of God, a universal God who is there for the weak, the strangers, the refugees – the opposite of what the FPO stands for.”

Austria has taken in over 115,000 migrants from the Middle East, Africa and Asia since last year. After initially welcoming the refugees, more and more Austrians fear it will be difficult to integrate the newcomers and have become receptive to the FPO’s message that mass immigration threatens security and jobs.

God would support the order of nature, if God voiced his opinions.

That we can know for certain, because nature itself is the only place where we can actually see God.

And one would hope that a Christian God would be against an invasion and conquest by a foreign group. He certainly always was historically.

Hillary Personally Came Up with Infantile “Donald Duck” Idea – Evidence of Highly Illegal PAC Coordination

Eric Striker
Daily Stormer
October 24, 2016

The latest Project Veritas video reveals a series of flagrant FEC violation by Hillary Clinton herself. In the film, Robert Creamer, Scott Foval, and others muse about the Donald Duck anti-Trump troll mascot being kind of dumb, but having to execute it because of an order from Clinton.

Donna Brazile and the Democratic National Convention appear to have shared management of these ducks with the Americans United For Change non-profit these journalists managed to infiltrate.



I remember seeing this mascot following Trump and Pence everywhere, and thinking “must be a bunch of older homos and female baby boomers coming up with this silly crap.” I get the same feeling every time I see a Geico commercial. Indeed, Hillary personally overrode everyone in this non-profit to get her Donald Duck.

As for Donna Brazile, I’m in awe at how this 65 IQ Negro managed to become the lead monkey of the Democratic party. Someone like Michelle Obama you can argue is a smart black man, but putting this mouth breathing ape in charge of fielding tough questions and coordinating illegal stuff must be as nerve wracking for Hillary as realizing your airline pilot’s name is Muhammad Abdul.

Watch her in action:

Like I said before, we need more affirmative action in our corrupt Zionist government. Not surprising that they’re getting caught for all the dirty things they’ve been doing all this time.

The most important ecological crisis of the world has ever seen has been underway since March 11th, 2011, yet there is nary a mention of it in the corporate media, and no political body in the world is championing its resolution.

Widespread Denial and Willful Ignorance

The media, politicians and the world at large seem to be engaging in extreme denial regarding Fukushima. A survey of mainstream media coverage of the fallout of this event reveals the trend of covering this story as a human interest affair, not as the immediate threat it truly is.

The effects on nature are already being seen, yet even among the environmentalist factions of media, there is strong denial of the damage already done and of what is to come as the crisis approaches its sixth year. Some 300 tons of radioactive water are dumped into the Pacific Ocean each day, and signs are showing that this catastrophe is gravely affecting sea-life and wildlife in and around the Pacific.

The FDA maintains that there is no  evidence of contamination by Fukushima borne radionuclides in the American food supply, yet this opinion is contested by some independent researchers. A report by the Fairewinds Energy Education says that cancer is on the rise in areas around the failed power plant, and that millions will die in coming years as a result.

“[T]he second report received from Japan proves that the incidence of thyroid cancer is approximately 230 times higher than normal in Fukushima Prefecture… So what’s the bottom line? The cancers already occurring in Japan are just the tip of the iceberg. I’m sorry to say that the worst is yet to come.” [Source]

As election year in the U.S. approaches its dramatic climax, it has been striking to observe that neither of the major two-party candidates, or third-party candidates for that matter, have mentioned this crisis at all during the entire election run up. It is a non-issue in American politics, and if you’re listening, the silence is deafening.

The 40-Year-Plan

Thus far, all plans to stop radioactive contamination of the Pacific Ocean and the Japanese Islands have failed, the most impressive of which is the construction of a $320 million underground wall of frozen dirt to block the seepage of groundwater into surrounding areas. 1oo feet deep and over a mile long, the ‘land-side impermeable wall‘ is already failing as rainfall from recent typhoons has caused partial melting of sections of the ‘ice wall.’

A previous and ongoing cleanup effort requires the on site storage of contaminated water near the Fukushima Daiichi is merely a band-aid as radioactive water continues to accumulate by the day, with no long term plan for proper disposal.

“…the filtered water is still full of tritium, a radioactive version of hydrogen. (When two neutrons are added to the element, it becomes unstable, prone to emitting electrons.) Tritium bonds with oxygen just like normal hydrogen does, to produce radioactive “tritiated water.” It’s impractical—or at least extremely difficult and expensive—to separate tritiated water from normal water.” [Source]

The reality here is that this crisis is untouchable in its scope and unparalleled in its lethality, and TEPCO’s 40-year-plan to decommission the plant will be a failure.

Final Thoughts

No one of significant import is talking about this crisis or working to elevate it as a national and international priority. The American political scene is focused instead on the selection of the next president being chosen between two candidates who clearly have zero interest in addressing this dire issue.

Is this because nothing can be done about it? Is this because the energy industry is controlling the conversation and covering up the truth? Or is this because the agenda for the U.S. at present is geared to destabilization and a push for expansion of the Orwellian Permanent War, and ecological disasters are supportive of the global depopulation scheme in play?

In any case, the Fukushima meltdown is a slow-burning apocalyptic event that desperately needs our attention.

Iceland Proves Third Parties Have Legitimate and Crucial Role in Democracy

Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer
Waking Times

The progressive island nation of Iceland is on the verge of ‘re-booting’ Western democracy and of proving third parties have a legitimate and important role to play in maintaining the balance of power between people and their leadership.

In response to overwhelming government corruption in Iceland, the Pirate Party is now leading in polls coming into national elections, threatening to install a new type of political party, one based on direct democracy, using technology to amplify the voices of citizens in opposition to entrenched corporate and political powers.

“Its members are a collection of anarchists, hackers, libertarians and Web geeks. It sets policy through online polls — and thinks the government should do the same. It wants to make Iceland “a Switzerland of bits,” free of digital snooping. It has offered Edward Snowden a new place to call home.” [Source]

If they win, this would be another clear signal that European citizens are rejecting mainstream politics, and are willing to update an aging political system to prevent people from become slaves to banks and politicians.

“The distrust that had long been germinating has now exploded. The Pirates are riding on that wave. We’ve had new parties before, and then they’ve faded. What’s surprising is that they’re maintaining their momentum.” ~Ragnheithur Kristjánsdóttir, political history professor at the University of Iceland.

The United States Persecutes Third Parties

In the U.S., however, third parties are persecuted by the Federal Election Commission, by law enforcement, and by the corporate media who all work in tandem to ensure that alternative candidates are absent from political debates, are treated as criminal elements and dissenters, and that the mere notion of voting outside of the two-party system is viewed as socially irresponsible.

The strategy of divide and conquer is as clear as day in America, and as people are pigeon-holed into the liberal vs. democrat thought boxes, the Republican and Democrat parties are free to move forward with near identical policies, offering nothing new for the American people.

Third party philosophies are permitted to exist only as offshoots of the main parties, such as the efforts by Ron Paul and Bernie Sanders who both offered platforms vastly different from the neocon, private-banking imperialism pitched by mainstream candidates.

Final Thoughts

Third party politics is the last stand of world democracy, and as Iceland is about to prove, if people can organize around new ideals which resonate with the population, then they can be elevated and brought into power, if only the establishment system permits their participation. In the U.S. third parties are strictly prohibited.

Pirate Party representative Birgitta Jónsdóttir is proving that not is a re-boot of Western democracy popular, but that it is also possible, saying, “People want real changes and they understand that we have to change the systems, we have to modernize how we make laws.”

Iceland has become a beacon of hope and freedom in recent years by refusing to allow corrupt bankers to take over their nation, even prosecuting some bankers and sending them to jail for breaking the law. Why shouldn’t America be able to do the same?

Belgian media outlets hacked, Syrian Cyber Army claims responsibility

A number of Belgian media websites, including De Standaard, RTBF, Het Nieuwsblad, Gazet van Antwerpen and Het Belang van Limburg, reported they have been subjected to a coordinated DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attack on Monday afternoon, which temporarily shut down their sites. The attack was claimed by a group calling itself the Syrian Cyber Army, as punishment for the media helping to cover up their government’s actions in Aleppo.

“We attacked the Belgian media that hide the work of its air force in Syria,” a statement on their website

“We call on the international community to support us in shaming the Belgian authorities, who orders the killing of dozens of civilians in the town of Hassadjek near Aleppo on October 18, and caused damage to civilian infrastructure,” the Syrian hackers wrote.

“Instead of strikes on Daesh [Islamic State], the international coalition led by the United States targets only civilians and deceives the international community about its goals in Syria.”

The attack comes in the wake of  from the Russian Defense Ministry that two Belgian F-16 jets flying from Jordan struck Hassadjek in Aleppo province on October 18, killing six civilians. The Belgian government has strongly denied involvement in the bombing, and has demanded that Russia take back the accusations. 

The Het Nieuwsblad has  that Russia supports and finances the hacking group. The hacking attack itself appears to have been carried out from Turkey. However, the federal prosecutor’s office has yet to start an investigation.

Over the course of the civil war, Syrian hacking groups have  attacks on various news organizations they believe paint the Assad government in a negative light. Among these is the Syrian Electronic Army, formed in 2011, which has targeted the BBC, al-Jazeera and National Public Radio, among other outlets.


Their tactics range from DDoS attacks – in which thousands of computers will overwhelm a server by requesting access all at once – to spamming, malware, phishing and defacing websites.

Some of the attacks have been humorous at times. After hacking the BBC Weather’s Twitter, a headline read “Saudi weather station down due to head on-collision with camel.”

Hundreds of cadets held hostage as gunmen storm police training center in Pakistan – media

Police and security forces are at the scene and cordoned off the area, while heavy exchange of fire continues from both sides, Pakistani SAMAA television reports.

Five to six terrorists barged into the academy from back side,” the Pakistani media cited the region’s government spokesman Anwar ul Haq Kakar as saying. The official said that the attackers then “went straight to the hostel” of the academy, where around 200 to 250 police recruits “normally stay.”

Generally, cadets studying at the academy are between the ages of 18 and 26, Pakistan-based reporter Javed Rana told RT.

The official could not confirm the number of hostages, but said that one of the security personnel had been injured by gunfire.

Emergency has been declared in all state-run hospitals in Quetta, SAMAA reported.

Citing a survivor who escaped the attack, Pakistani Dunya News reported that the attackers opened fire as they stormed the training facility from the rear. Some of the terrorists were wearing suicide vests, the TV channel reported, citing a source close to law enforcement.

Pakistan’s Interior Ministry has established a control room to monitor the situation, Dunya News said.
