    Apparently drkate,your previous article of “It’s Been “Media-Gate” Since 911” needs to be corrected.With this latest post,Our criminally complicit MSMs have been involved much longer,than anyone could have ever imagined.I certainly was not aware. Having said this,The only plausible explanation I can come up with as to why
    the American people doesn’t cut the MSMs off at the kneecaps is because God and His wisdom has decided the time is not right and does not fit His plan.I am simply left to wonder,in ignorance,because apparently Americans simply don’t have the “Right Stuff” by themselves. cheers

    I am ashamed to say I don’t even remember the attack on the USS Libety. I guess I was busy getting myself unhappily married two days later.

    Thanks for this, Kate. I seem to be learning a lot of negative thngs about Isreal lately.

    Not trying to be controversial, however, if you study the various (some conflicting) accounts what happened, both countries military commands made grave mistakes, miscommunication and other errors. That is not to excuse Israel, because even visually they could have established that it was not an enemy ship and could have called off the attack in the last second, at least in my opinion. But the case is not 100% clear cut.

    Israel knows that without US support they would not exist. Why would they bite the hand that feeds them? What should the US do in a case like that? Nuke its ally out of existence in retaliation?

    • 7 drkate June 8, 2012 at 12:11 pm

      This was a false flag attack intended to drag us into their war. Israel was shooting bombs at people who had only stones to throw. Mistaken identity? yeah right. I don’t accept this was an accident kind of thing, or mistaken identity. Our soldiers were murdered by a supposed US ally.

        The following as related appears to be somewhat objectively balanced regarding the atrocities committed between Israel and Arab alike:

        The truth is otherwise—and not surprisingly. Underlying the series of Arab-Israeli wars has been a deep hatred by each side of the other and deep existential fears, both among Israeli Jews and Palestinian Arabs. Moreover, the wars have been at least partly fought in areas crowded with civilians (the whole of Palestine in 1948, the Gaza Strip in 1956 and 1967, the West Bank and Golan Heights in 1967, and southern Lebanon and Beirut in 1982). Almost inevitably, civilians were hurt and killed, sometimes deliberately, more often unintentionally.

        The bloodiest and most atrocity-ridden of these wars was, without doubt, the 1948 war of independence, which began, from November 1947 to May 1948, as a civil/guerrilla war between Palestine’s thoroughly intermixed Arab and Jewish communities, but ended, from May 1948 to January 1949, as a conventional war between the invading Arab States’ armies and the newborn State of Israel. The fact that the Arabs had launched the war—the Palestinian Arabs in November–December 1947 and the Arab States in May 1948—and that the war was protracted and extremely costly for the Jews (who lost six thousand dead, or 1 percent of a total population of 650,000) only exacerbated anger toward the Arabs and heightened the propensity to commit atrocities. The willingness to commit atrocities on each side was also fed by reports—sometimes accurate, sometimes fantastic—of atrocities committed by the other side; retaliation was a frequent motive for Arabs and Israelis alike.

        Two out of the three massacres committed by Arabs against Jews during the 1948 war were triggered by Jewish atrocities against Arabs. On December 30, 1947, Irgun Zvai Leumi (National Military Organization, or IZL) terrorists threw a bomb at an Arab bus stop at the entrance to the Haifa Oil Refinery outside Haifa. Half a dozen Arabs were killed, and more were injured. The Arab workers inside the refinery immediately retaliated by turning on their Jewish coworkers with knives, crowbars, and sticks, killing thirty-nine of them. (In turn, the Haganah responded on the night of December 31 by raiding the nearby Arab village of Balad ash Sheikh, where many of the workers lived, blowing up several dozen houses and killing about sixty Arabs.)

          According to a prominent Egyptian cleric, if Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Mursi wins the presidential election next week, Egypt’s new capital no longer will be Cairo.… Egypt’s new capital will be Jerusalem. (Source: WND)

          The creation of a new giant Caliphate certainly a step in the direction of world-wide Sharia law, the declared goal of Islamic leaders.

          This is going to be clearly Israel’s war. Maybe nuclear, if Iran allies itself with the Arabs. Is the creation of a “United Arab Caliphate” in or against the interests of the US, or it does not influence the US? Let Israel fight it out and let the US stay neutral?

          How do you see this?

          • 10 cedartree June 9, 2012 at 12:05 am

            I see this as greater than Israel’s interests. The foothold of Jerusalem by musloids who historically take over other religions symbols, shrines, buildings, monuments (or blow them up) should not be allowed for both Judaism and Christianity. Muslims are daily slaughtering CHRISTIANS from Nigeria to Indonesia, their murderous intent should not be emboldened.

            • 11 Voco Indubium June 9, 2012 at 11:51 am

              The plan it seems is a reverse-crusader movement. The crusaders a millennium ago tried to take back Jerusalem. Now the Moslems want to take control of it again. Western intellectuals generally condemned the crusaders. Not much protest for the current Moslem plan.

              The Moslem leaders use the religion the way Soviet leaders used the ideology of Marxism. Military expansion, controlling humans in the most brutal fashion under the guise of religion or ideology. The West resisted communism, but free hand is granted to Moslem political and military expansion.

      Ro 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

        2) the family or descendants of Israel, the race of Israel

        3) Christians, the Israel of God (Gal 6:16), for not all those who draw their bodily descent from Israel are true Israelites, i.e. are those whom God pronounces to be Israelites and has chosen to salvation

      It is stinking more each day. This from my friend Kelleigh: “Rand Paul stated on Hannity’s show last night that he was supporting Romney since his father did not win the nomination and has no chance of doing so. Then he told the lie. He said when George Romney (Willard’s Mexican born father) lost his campaign (to Barry Goldwater) he threw his support behind the nominee. THIS IS A TOTAL LIE. George Romney was always a moderate and he hated Goldwater so much that he and the entire family voted for Lyndon Baines Johnson. That includes Willard Mitt Romney.

      Whatever they are trying to do, 95% of us are unhappy and know that if they join establishment republicans, they will be changed, not the estab republicans.”

    Alabama became the first state to adopt a tough law protecting private property and due process by prohibiting any government involvement with or participation in a controversial United Nations scheme known as Agenda 21. Activists from across the political spectrum celebrated the measure’s approval as a significant victory against the UN “sustainability” plot, expressing hope that similar sovereignty-preserving measures would be adopted in other states as the nationwide battle heats up.

    The GOP Establishment fears – and, yes, hates – Ron Paul, and they have good reason to feel that way. It is hardly beyond comprehension that they would attempt to influence – and, ultimately, derail – the campaign and the movement it represents in this covert manner. I don’t think they are stupid enough to believe they can somehow finagle Paul into endorsing Romney, or whoever the GOP candidate might be: what they rightly fear, however, is that the Paul campaign will not end in Tampa – that Paul will launch a third party bid.
    That’s what this wheeling and dealing, these shadowy movements in the background, are all about. Whether they will succeed remains to be seen. The signs, however, are not good. Gardner cites Jesse Benton, Paul’s campaign manager, as saying:
    “You can dress in black and stand on the hill and smash the state and influence nobody, or you can realize the dynamics and the environment and get involved in the most pragmatic way to win minds and win votes and influence change. That’s what we’re trying to do.”
    This is the classic argument for a sell out. The irony is that there is nothing pragmatic about it. The American people stand shoulder to shoulder with Ron when it comes to foreign policy, as every poll has shown. The question is whom do the Paulians want to “influence” – the American people, or the very Establishment they’ve been fighting all these years? The alternative to standing on a hill and making a fashion statement isn’t selling out libertarianism’s anti-imperialist heritage: it’s making that heritage understandable and attractive to the American majority, which is already with us in spirit.
    The plan, apparently, is to push Rand Paul for the Vice Presidential nomination. These people are deluding themselves – but, then again, that’s how the sell out starts.

    This is NOT my comment, but since I agree with it in toto, and know that mostly everyone here is a Ron Paul supporter, I thought I’d share.

    Re: Rand Paul’s endorsement of Romney

    “This was the only decision. Period.

    I am just as committed to small government, auditing the Fed, massively reducing spending and removing the graft and corruption in government as ANY Ron Paul Libertarian. But, the singular focus must now be the elimination of the CANCER.

    My hope, going forward, is that the Paul movement can continue gaining strength and helping our nation focus on bringing us back to what the founding fathers envisioned.

    Word of advice for the Paul movement:

    The foreign policy considerations of your platform require thoughtful revision. Once this is accomplished, the movement will enjoy mass appeal.”

If the R’s win the election, they will sweep all of Obama’s illegality under the rug, refuse to defund or overturn any of obama’s actions, and continue with business as usual. No,the cancer will not be eliminated with the removal of O…that’s what they want us to think. And that’s part of the cancer.

    How about this?
    June 8, 1967: Israel Attacks USS Liberty
    Israeli aircraft and torpedo boats attacked the USS Liberty in international waters off Egypt’s Gaza Strip. Israeli aircraft fired napalm and rockets at the intelligence ship that was well marked as a U.S. vessel. The Liberty called for assistance but radio transmissions were blocked by Israel. The lightly armed vessel was eventually able to make contact with the U.S. carrier, Saratoga, whose 12 fighter jets and four tanker planes were launched to defend the Liberty.
    Shortly after the aircraft were deployed, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara ordered the planes to return to the carrier. The Israeli air raid left nine of the 294 crew members dead and 60 wounded. Israeli torpedo boats also attacked the Liberty. The ship successfully dodged four of the torpedoes but was hit at the waterline by one. With severe damage to its hull, the Liberty launched its life boats, but these were also met with attack, a violation of international law. The Liberty did not sink and Israel retreated. The damaged USS Liberty managed to sail to a safe port. A total of 34 Americans were killed and 171 were wounded in the two hour attack.
    Israel later apologized for the attack and paid $6.9 million as compensation to the families of the dead and wounded. In 1980, Israel and the U.S. came to an additional settlement of $6 million plus 13 years of interest for damages to the vessel. Israel claims they had mistaken the Liberty for an Egyptian military vessel. U.S. and Israeli reports also concluded the attack was a mistake due to confusion of the identity of the ship. However, Liberty survivors and some U.S. officials from the time say they believe the attack was intentional; done in order to conceal Israel’s planned seizure of Syria’s Golden Heights, which occurred the next day. Officials say that the Liberty, an intelligence ship, would have picked up in the communications in planning the controversial seizure of Golan Heights.

      Thank you for that find. If you take this act of war and killing of our soldiers by the state of Israel in conjunction with the post “Witness to the protocols”, “Satan & the NWO”, and everything written here about the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, the banksters, and the feds, then we should fully understand that the state of Israel is not the Biblical Israel. The Rothschild formula is the one which funds both sides of a conflict.

      Then taking a harder look, it is the military-industrial-drug &gun running-intelligence agency cabal that benefits from war and conflict, death, and more conflict. “protecting Israel” is one of their mockingbird battle cries. This must be destroyed for humanity to survive, that is just one manifestation of Satan…

      • 49 Voco Indubium June 9, 2012 at 8:35 pm

        The most puzzling piece of mosaic in this intentionally confused mystery is that McNamara ordered the planes to return to the carrier. This means that the highest levels of the US government were involved. This was confirmed later by someone who said: “President Johnson ordered the recall with the comment that he did not care if every man drowned and the ship sank, but that he would not embarrass his allies. “

        One would not expect such statement from the Prez.
