When AIPAC Calls, John Boehner and Eric Cantor Listen
Thomas A. Droleskey
Although it was my great honor and privilege to have posted an Endorsement for Stephen G. Brady For Sheriff of Menard, Illinois yesterday afternoon, I am unbent, unbroken and unyielding in my utter rejection of the farce of electoral politics, controlled as it is by the organized forces of naturalism in the crime syndicates of the false opposite of the "left and the "right," at the natural level. The ongoing "debate" over President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro's determination to "punish" the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for its alleged use of chemical weapons on the variety of rebel forces seeking to overthrow him only prove what I have been saying and writing for the last fifteen years.
Permit me a few moments to illustrate and amplify the point for the unconvinced.
Your "Lesser Evil" From 2008 Comes to the Support of the Caesar Who Defeated Him
It was around this time five years ago that I was being excoriated, albeit by allusion, as a "couch potato" by a former colleague even though I had run for public office three times and served as a surrogate speaker in two different presidential campaigns in the 1990s, including, of course, for Patrick Joseph Buchanan's candidacy for the Republican Party presidential nomination in 1995 and 1996.
United States Senator John Sidney McCain III (R-Arizona) had just selected that great wunderkind, Sarah Heath Palin, who wore a "Star of David" on her label and had a flag of the Zionist State of Israel in his gubernatorial offices in Juneau, Alaska, to be his vice presidential running mate. All manner of otherwise rational human beings lost their minds over Palin's selection, believing that it represented a "game changer" and that she was one of the "most promising" faces in national politics to have come along in recent years. Such utter and complete deception. Utter fantasy. Utter insanity and irrationality.
Obviously, I wrote about this all at the time (
Gradually Accepting Naturalism's False Premises, Absolute Insanity, Facts Are Troublesome Things, It's Still Absolute Insanity and Fratricide in the Lodge).
No one seemed to care that John Sidney McCain III supported the chemical killing of the innocent preborn in all circumstances and the surgical execution of innocent babies in the so-called "hard cases" or that Sarah Heath Palin was a full-throated supporter of contraception. Both McCain and Palin were war mongers who wanted to export "American exceptionalism" to all other parts of the world, especially in the Mohammedan world, as the "cure" to "democratize" nations in order to make them more "just" and "stable." We have seen how well this has worked in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Egypt (see Different Chief, Same War Drums).
No, those of us who pointed out the facts about McCain and Heath back in 2008 were denounced as "unrealistic" and "dreamers," people who were trying to elect United States Senator Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro (D-Illinois). This was all demagogic, of course, as to point out the horrors of the supposedly "lesser evil" is not to minimize those of the supposedly "greater evil."
McCain's penchant to resort to war as the first, last and only choice in any and all circumstances was mocked and satirized in Different Chief, Same War Drum. That mockery was well-deserved.
Consider your "lesser evil" from 2008 coming to the support of the man who whopped him good back then, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, accompanied, as always, by his Bobbsey Twin, United States Senator Lindsay Graham (R-South Carolina), who is a thirty-third degree Freemason:
WASHINGTON — The White House’s aggressive push for Congressional
approval of an attack on Syria appeared to have won the tentative
support of one of President Obama’s most hawkish critics, Senator John
McCain, who said Monday that he would back a limited strike if the
president did more to arm the Syrian rebels and the attack was punishing
enough to weaken the Syrian military.
In an hourlong meeting at the White House, said Mr. McCain, Republican
of Arizona, Mr. Obama gave general support to doing more for the Syrian
rebels, although no specifics were agreed upon. Officials said that in
the same conversation, which included Senator Lindsey Graham, the South
Carolina Republican, Mr. Obama indicated that a covert effort by the
United States to arm and train Syrian rebels was beginning to yield
results: the first 50-man cell of fighters, who have been trained by the
C.I.A., was beginning to sneak into Syria.
There appeared to be broad agreement with the president, Mr. McCain and
Mr. Graham said, that any attack on Syria should be to “degrade” the
Syrian government’s delivery systems. Such a strike could include
aircraft, artillery and the kind of rockets that the Obama
administration says the forces of President Bashar al-Assad used to
carry out an Aug. 21 sarin attack in the Damascus suburbs that killed
more than 1,400 people.
The senators said they planned to meet with Susan E. Rice, Mr. Obama’s
national security adviser, to discuss the strategy in greater depth.
“It is all in the details, but I left the meeting feeling better than I
felt before about what happens the day after and that the purpose of the
attack is going to be a little more robust than I thought,” Mr. Graham
said in an interview.
But Mr. McCain said in an interview that Mr. Obama did not say
specifically what weapons might be provided to the opposition or discuss
in detail what Syrian targets might be attacked.
“There was no concrete agreement, ‘O.K., we got a deal,' ” Mr. McCain
said. “Like a lot of things, the devil is in the details.”
In remarks to reporters outside the West Wing, he called the meeting
“encouraging,” urged lawmakers to support Mr. Obama in his plan for
military action in Syria and said a no vote in Congress would be
“catastrophic” for the United States and its credibility in the world.
Mr. McCain said he believed after his conversation with the president
that any strikes would be “very serious” and not “cosmetic.”
Although the words from Mr. McCain and Mr. Graham were a positive
development for Mr. Obama and a critical part of the administration’s
lobbying blitz on Syria on Monday, the White House still faces a tough
fight in Congress. Many lawmakers entirely oppose a strike, and others
favor a resolution that would provide for more limited military action
than what is in a draft resolution that the White House has sent to
Capitol Hill. The conflict of opinion underscores Mr. Obama’s challenge
in winning votes in the House and Senate next week and avoiding personal
A Labor Day conference call with five of Mr. Obama’s highest-ranking
security advisers drew 127 House Democrats, nearly two-thirds their
total number, after 83 lawmakers of both parties attended a classified
briefing on Sunday. Pertinent committees are returning to Washington
early from a Congressional recess for hearings this week, starting
Tuesday with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which will hear
from Secretary of State John Kerry, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and
Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
“The debate is shifting away from ‘Did he use chemical weapons?’ to
‘What should be done about it?' ” said Representative Adam B. Schiff, a
California Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, in an interview
after the Monday conference call.
The push in Washington came as reaction continued around the world to
the president’s abrupt decision over the weekend to change course and
postpone a military strike to seek authorization from Congress first.
In France, the only nation to offer vigorous support for an American
attack, there were rising calls for a parliamentary vote like the one
last week in Britain, where lawmakers jolted the White House with a
rejection of a British military attack. But the French government, in an
effort to bolster its case, released a declassified summary of French intelligence that it said ties Mr. Assad’s government to the use of chemical weapons on Aug. 21.
In Russia, Foreign Minister Sergey V. Lavrov dismissed as unconvincing the evidence presented by Mr. Kerry of chemical weapons
use by the Syrian government. “We were shown certain pieces of evidence
that did not contain anything concrete, neither geographical locations,
nor names, nor evidence that samples had been taken by professionals,”
Mr. Lavrov said in a speech at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations. (Caesar Gains McCain's Backing on Syria Attack.)
John Sidney McCain III is now what he was five years ago: a useful idiot for the American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee. He is a mad war monger who would have had us in even more wars by now had he been elected on November 4, 2008. (McCain is so convinced of the "moral necessity" of attacking Syria that he admitted he was so bored by United States Secretary of State John F. Kerry's testimony yesterday before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee yesterday that he played poker on his smart phone! See Sen. McCain plays poker as Kerry argues for military strike against Syria.)
Mind you, this is not to say that we are to celebrate the fact that utterly lawless Marxist wannabe despot named Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro is "better" than McCain. Of course not.
It is, however, to say that it never makes any difference which scion of naturalism gets elected at the presidential level here in the United States of America as the Zionist war party wins no matter whether a Democrat or a Republican is in the White House, and it is that Zionist war party that will make sure that the Republican Party keeps nominating the likes of John Sidney McCain III and Willard Mitt Romney no matter how hard men such as former United States Representative Ron Paul (R-Texas) or his son, United States Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) or United States Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) may try.
Mr. Hugh Akins made this point in Synagogue Rising:
Discussion of the "lesser evil" brings to the fore
the question of the tolerance of evil. Pope Leo writes: "But to judge
aright, we must acknowledge that, the more a state is driven to tolerate
evil, the further is it from perfection; and that the tolerance of evil
which is dictated by political prudence should be strictly confined to
the limits which its justifying cause, the public welfare,
requires. Wherefore, if such tolerance would be injurious to be the
public welfare, and entail greater evils on the state, it would not be
lawful; for such case the motive of is wanting." (Pope Leo XIII, Libertas Praestantissimum, June 20, 1888.)
Bp. [Geraldo de Proenca] Sigaud [the Bishop of
Jacarezinho, Parana, Brazil, from January 1, 1947, to December 20, 1960,
and the Archbishop of Diamantina, Minas Gerais, Brazil, from December
20, 1960, to September 10, 1960] gives fair warning about how the
Revolution infiltrates and permeates the Church and Christian society
through the "lesser evil" tactic. "Among the many ways the Revolution
permeates surreptitiously into the stronghold of the Church, the first
door is called the 'lesser evil.' This tactic may be compared with the
famous Trojan Horse. Catholic doctrine teaches that if we cannot avoid
some evil we may choose to permit some lesser evil in order to avoid the
greater evil on condition we do not directly commit evil ourselves.
"(1) The liberals think a lesser evil is a small evil that is not worth fighting against;
Very many Catholics and even priests are of the opinion that conflict
harms the Church as if She were not by Her very nature militant. This is
why they allow evil to occupy without combating it under the pretext of
prudence, charity, and apostolic diplomacy.
"(3) THEY DO NOT REALIZE THAT EVIL--EVEN A LESSER EVIL-IS ALWAYS AN EVIL, and
that is why they do not seek to limit or suppress it. They live daily
with the"lesser evil" and thus they forget the greater good as something
horrible. For example, the separation of Church and State and that
divorce be allowed among Catholics." (Bishop Geraldo de Proenca Sigaud,
as cited by Hugh Akins in Synagogue Rising.)
Another example, of course,
and no doubt
The more grievous one, is in lending invaluable support and
assistance by means of backing the "lesser evil," to the Synagogue of
Satan in its total war against the Mystical Body of Christ. Some
Catholics who've made a habit of voting the "lesser evil" will continue
to do so until they vote into office, on the world scene, the Antichrist
himself, who being wholly sanitized by the corrupt Zionist-controlled
media, will be portrayed before the unsuspecting peoples of earth as the
most moderate and hopeful, least radical and most compassionate, and
least corrupt candidate, compared to the raving lunatics competing with
him. Antichrist could just as easily be a Republican conservative, a
Christian Zionist, a Masonic "anti-Communist," even a Conciliarist
"Catholic" wholeheartedly endorsed by the pope in Rome. He might even
present himself a "traditionalist," cheered on by the many "lesser evil"
traditionalists who see-no-evil in the likes of Benedict, Bush, McCain,
Santorum, Gingrich, the Talmud, Israel, Zionism or Holaucastism.
It is by this shameless compromising that evil is
ever moving forward, every advancing, ever conquering. "All tepidity and
every thoughtless compromise," says Pius XII, "all pusillanimity and
every vacillation between good and evil...all that, and all that can be
added to it. has been and is a deplorable contribution to the evil which
today is shaking world." (Pope Pius XII, radio message Ancora ua quinta volta, to the world, December 24, 1943, quote in Directives to Lay Apostles.) (Hugh Akins, Synagogue Rising,
Catholic Action Resource Center, 2012, pp. 694.695. See also Mr. Akins's Mitt Romney Definitely NOT the Moral Choice for Christians.)
The only thing that differentiated John Sidney McCain III from Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro in 2008 and at the present time is that he is simply a different sort of naturalist than the Marxist-trained Obama/Soetoro. When push comes to shove, though, John Sidney McCain III, who suffered brutal torture at the hands of the Communists while imprisoned in North Vietnam during the Vietnam War, is still trying to win the Vietnam War, still trying to atone for having broken under the torture to sign the rump confession that was forced out of him by his torturers, which makes him a man to be pitied, yes, even as he does the bidding of the man who defeated him in 2008 and even as he urges American military action in almost every conflict that breaks out around the world. And, remarkably enough, McCain has, well, at the least for the moment, withdrawn his support for the draft resolution "authorizing" Obama/Soetoro to launch a strike against Syria because it does not go far enough to "reverse the situation on the ground!"--see McCain Pulls Support for Syria Plan. I rest my case about the caricature I wrote of McCain in Different Chief, Same War Drums.
Never fall for the "lesser of two evils" business again, folks, as the "anointed one" from the false opposite of the naturalist "right" is none other than New Jersey Governor Christopher Christie, who, we will be told two years from now as the run-up to the 2016 primaries and caucuses commences, is the "electable" candidate" against former First Lady, former United States Senator from the State of New York and former United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton if she does indeed seek and then capture the presidential nomination of the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist "left," the Democratic Party. The "Stop Obama" movement in 2008 not only did not work, but the man the "Stop Obama" movement in 2008 considered the "lesser of two evils" whom we "just had to support" is now giving Obama/Soetoro a free pass and a green light in every war in which he wants to involve the United States of America.
That is, of course, if there will be elections in 2016 as the upcoming American military strike on Syria, which will occur with or without a constitutionally meaningless "authorization," might bring an ever-escalating conflict, something that Patrick Joseph Buchanan, who is hated by the "left" and by the neoconservative war hawks on the "right," noted in his most recent column:
“Catastrophic!” said Sen. John McCain.
If Congress votes no on a resolution calling for U.S. intervention in Syria’s civil war, says McCain, it would be “catastrophic” for U.S. credibility in the world.
Consider what the senator is saying here.
Because Barack Obama, two years ago, said “Assad must go,” and, one year ago, said any use of chemical weapons crosses his “red line,” Congress has no choice but to plunge America into yet another Mideast war.
Can this be? Are we really, as a nation, required to go to war to make good the simple-minded statements of an untutored president who had no constitutional authority to issue his impulsive ultimata?
Are we really required to go to war to get the egg off Obama’s face?
Not since the War of Jenkins’ Ear has there been a dumber cause for a great country to go to war. Is there no way out?
There is, and it’s right in front of us.
The House, Senate or both can vote no on the war resolution and Obama can then say, as did David Cameron, that, while he disagrees, he respects the decision of a Congress in which the Constitution placed sole authority to authorize America’s going to war.
Are Brits now crying “catastrophe!”? Do the Spanish no longer think the Brits will defend Gibraltar? Is Britain now wholly non-credible to the world?
For Obama, and for us, it is the other options that invite catastrophe.
If, for example, the House or Senate votes down the war resolution and Obama, without authorization from Congress, the Security Council, NATO or the Arab League plunges us into a new war this nation does not want to fight, he will be courting a geostrategic and political disaster.
Even if Congress approves a war resolution, the president should think long and hard about diving into a war he sought to avoid and stayed out of for over two years. Make no mistake; if Obama attacks Syria, be it for hours or days, we are in that blood-soaked abattoir for the duration.
In his dramatic statement Saturday, as politically astute as it was constitutionally correct, Obama called Syria “someone else’s war.”
Whose war? It is Shia Alawite vs. Sunni, Muslim vs. Christian, Kurd vs. Arab, Islamist vs. secularist. Backing Bashar Assad are Iran, Hezbollah and Russia.
Backing the rebels are Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf states, al-Qaida, foreign jihadists and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Assad is accused of killing 100,00 people. But that is the total of the dead in a civil war Assad has as much right to fight as the rebels. While his army is accused of using gas on civilians, the Islamist rebels have murdered Christians, massacred captives and engaged in public acts of cannibalism on dead Syrian soldiers.
Gas is a sickening weapon. Yet, there is no evidence thus far that Assad ordered its use. Rebel elements are said to have been found with sarin. As for Americans who tend to prefer white phosphorus, napalm and cluster bombs, upon what lofty moral ground do we stand?
Have we forgotten that Churchill wanted to drop anthrax on Germany and settled for two days of firebombing the defenseless city of Dresden? Or that our great friend Anwar Sadat was the confidante of Gamal Abdel Nasser when Egypt was using poison gas on Yemeni tribesmen?
The United States does not have any national security interest in Syria’s war. Why would we then launch missile attacks to “degrade” Assad’s military, when that army and air force are all that stands between us and a privileged sanctuary for al-Qaida in northern Syria, not unlike what al-Qaida had in Tora Bora and Waziristan.
We are told that if we do not strike Syria — making good on Obama’s threats — Israel, Turkey and even Japan and South Korea will not be able to trust us ever again.
What nonsense. We have treaties with Japan and South Korea. As for Turkey and Israel, if what is happening in Syria is outrageous and dangerous, why do they not act? Why do they keep tugging at our sleeve?
The Israeli Air force is five minutes from Damascus, its army a two-day march. The Turks have three times Syria’s population and a 400,000-man army equipped with NATO weapons. Together, they could invade and turn the tide in a week. Why do they not man up?
McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham came out of the Oval Office saying Obama was open to wider strikes on Syria and more lethal support for the rebels. As Iran, Hezbollah and Russia would then upgrade their own weapons shipments to Damascus, this will mean more dead, more wounded, more tens of thousands fleeing into exile and a longer war.
But what it will likely end with, after America is dragooned in, is a U.S. war with Iran; our allies, sitting in their box seats, cheering us on.
And that is the dog you will not hear bark in the war-on-Syria debate. (No Syrian War to Save Obama's Face! Also see Judge Andrew P. Napolitano's War, War, What Is It Good for?)
Patrick Joseph Buchanan is, of course, entirely correct in this article, which is why is time to face a few facts about the real goals of Caesar Barackus Obamus Ignoramus's impending military intervention in Syria, which will be anything but limited in its scope or restrained in its assaults.
More Social Engineering to Benefit Mohammedans and Their "Arab Spring"
Although the governments of the United States of America and Israel have slightly different geopolitical objectives to accomplish from launching an unprovoked assault upon Syria, both desire to engage in a bit of social engineering in the land that was once a early bastion of the Catholic Faith.
The Obama/Soetoro regime, which has been covertly aiding the "rebels" in Syria for two years now, is desirous of creating another citadel for believing Mohammedans in the Middle East. Such a citadel is made even more possible in the long run if most of the small population of Christians in Syria is killed off or force to flee into Turkey, of all places, if they can get out of the country at all, that is, before the American bombs begin to drop.
Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media provides a very good account of these monstrous social engineering plans:
The New York Times story, “President Gains McCain’s Backing on Syria Attack,”
is predictable, considering that Obama had invited Senators John McCain
(R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to the White House for the specific
purpose of supporting his proposed military strike on Syria. Obama has
also asked the same two senators to travel to Egypt to undermine the
military leaders who overthrew the Muslim Brotherhood government there.
What is lacking from the media coverage is any recognition that the
inevitable result, according to congressional testimony, will be the
victory of the Muslim Brotherhood and associated terrorist groups in
Syria, and the genocide of the remaining Christians there.
In Egypt, right in front of our eyes, Obama facilitated a Muslim
Brotherhood takeover, which has been stopped dead in its tracks by a
true people’s revolution that has brought the military to power. The
Muslim Brotherhood has responded by attacking Christians and their churches.
Incredibly, it seems as if the crisis in Egypt will be repeated,
except in the case of Syria the explicit purpose of Obama’s military
intervention, as it seems to be developing under the guidance of McCain
and Graham, is the destruction of the regime that has been standing in
the way of the complete obliteration of the Christians. There will be no
one with authority left to rescue the Christians from the Muslim
Brotherhood when it takes control in Damascus.
“The problem,” writes terrorism
analyst Steven Emerson, “is that anything that hurts [Syrian President]
Assad, however inadvertently, benefits those same Islamist radicals
we’ve all been worried about…Equally incredible is the fact that, in
taking military action in Syria, America would effectively be standing
on the same side as al Qaeda affiliate groups who also support them.”
The issue isn’t the odious nature of the Assad regime, backed by
Russia and Iran, but the nature of the opposition, backed by the Muslim
Brotherhood. This is the side of the conflict that Obama, McCain and
Graham want the U.S. to support.
Graham, up for re-election next year, has been labeled by one of his
opponents, South Carolina state Senator Lee Bright, as a “Community
Organizer for the Muslim Brotherhood.” Fox News host Lou Dobbs seemed
surprised by the comment when Bright made it on his show,
but noted that Graham and McCain did in fact “try to bring the Muslim
Brotherhood back into the government after the military had gotten them
out of there.” Bright went on to say that McCain, the 2008 Republican
presidential nominee against Obama, had become “a tool of the Democrat
Party” and that Graham was “following suit.”
Pamela Geller of the American Freedom Defense Initiative is equally
harsh. “John McCain and Lindsey Graham are carrying water for Obama’s
pro-jihadist intervention in Syria,” she says.
“Step and Fetchit McCain and Graham were at the White House today
getting their marching orders from the Dear Leader. There were no
Democrats at the White House today.”
She asks, “Which Muslim Brotherhood operatives are advising McCain
and Graham? …McCain said today that blocking Obama’s Syria strike would
be ‘catastrophic.’ No, Senator McCain, Obama’s support of the Muslim
Brotherhood in Egypt was ‘catastrophic,’ and so is backing the
Brotherhood and al Qaeda in Syria.”
Geller is alluding to the fact that the Sunni branch of Islam,
represented by the Muslim Brotherhood, al Qaeda and other jihadist
groups, has targeted Syria for takeover. Al Jazeera, now in 40 to 50
million American homes, is their mouthpiece.
Strangely, Fox News figures William Kristol and Karl Rove were among those signing an August 27 letter supporting
an Obama military strike on Syria, even without Congressional approval.
On Monday night, after his White House meeting, Senator Graham appeared
on the Fox News show “Special Report,” with guest host Shannon Bream,
and was given about six minutes of virtually uninterrupted time to make
the case for Obama’s war.
If Fox News is in the pocket of McCain and Graham, you know it’s
going to be difficult for opponents of Obama’s war policy to get equal
time and attention from the media. Perhaps this is why Kristol predicts
the Republicans, who look to Fox News for guidance and direction, will
fall in line behind Obama.
However, largely ignored in this debate are Syria’s Christians, now
facing the prospect of genocide. It is not too late to cover their
On June 25, the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global
Human Rights, and International Organizations, together with the
Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa, held an important hearing entitled, “Religious Minorities in Syria: Caught in the Middle.”
Presiding over the hearing, Rep. Christopher Smith said,
“The al-Nusra Front, a U.S. designated foreign terrorist organization,
has been blamed for much of the sectarian rhetoric and violence, but
dozens of the opposition groups ascribe to Islamist or Salafist-jihadist
ideologies and mingle with the Free Syrian Army—which the U.S. may now
Dr. John Eibner, CEO of Christian Solidarity International (CSI-USA), went further than Rep. Smith, testifying that
the Obama Administration has given a “green light” to Sunni countries
in the region “to militarily destabilize Syria,” and that the human
rights of religious minorities, especially Christians, are at risk.
Eibner said, “Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey may be beloved by
America’s military and economic interests, but all have grave democracy
deficits and cannot serve as models for religious pluralism…Saudi Arabia
and Qatar are Sunni absolute monarchies. All religious minorities are
banned in the former. Nearly one hundred years ago the Christian
minorities were virtually eradicated in Turkey by means of genocide.
Successive Turkish governments, including the current government of
Prime Minister Recep Erdogan, have taken patriotic pride in genocide
Christian Solidarity International has issued a “Genocide Alert” for religious minorities in Syria.
It should be noted that Qatar is the financial sponsor of Al Jazeera,
a channel serving as a voice for the Muslim Brotherhood that has been
praised by McCain for making a “contribution” to world affairs.
Eibner’s comments are not just speculation. More than a year ago, The Wall Street Journal reported that
“U.S. intelligence operatives and diplomats have stepped up their
contacts with Syrian rebels” and that the CIA and State Department are
working with Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and “other allies” on behalf of
the Free Syrian Army (FSA).
Zuhdi Jasser, a member of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, testified that
reports indicate that armed rebels affiliated with the FSA raided the
Christian-populated al-Duvair village in Syria and massacred all its
civilian residents, including women and children.
Rev. Majed El Shafie, founder of One Free World International, testified that
the Islamist factions in Syria, which he said include Muslim
Brotherhood, Salafist, and al Qaeda-linked groups, “are rapidly
overtaking the undisciplined and poorly organized rebels as they have
in other countries…” He fears that these Muslim groups will “cleanse
Syria of the ‘infidels’—Christians and other minorities—and establish an
“In fact,” he said, “this process has already begun.”
Is President Obama about to become party to the Muslim Brotherhood’s
genocidal process? If so, how many Republicans besides McCain and Graham
will join with Obama? (The Planned Destruction of Christians in Syria.)
Other than the fact that there is no need for anyone to be "surprised" about the support that William Kristol and Karl Rove (see Karl Rove: Self-Anointed Political Godfather) are lending to Obama/Soetoro's plans as the former is a card-carrying Talmudic neoconservative war hawk and the latter helped to plan George Walker Bush's "Global War on Terror" in true fidelity to the principles of Trotskyism, Mr. Kincaid's assessment is very accurate.
The leaders of the State of Israel, obviously, would not mind it at all to see the elimination of Christians in Syria. Their principal goal, however, is to rid themselves of Bashar al-Assad and to force the United States of America into the war that they really want us to fight for them: war with the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The Israeli Defense Force is coordinating its activities very closely with those of the United States Department of Defense, including the test-firing of a missile yesterday, Tuesday, September 3, 2013, the Feast of Pope Saint Pius X, that the Israelis at first denied before being forced to admit the launch after a news report about it was reported by the state-run news agency in Russia. Yes, it has come to this: we have to give the real news of the world from the Russians!
Israel has acknowledged firing an upgraded Sparrow missile from an Israeli warplane Tuesday in a launch meant to test the country's Arrow anti-missile system.
The Israeli Defense Ministry confirmed to Reuters that the test -- which was coordinated with the United States Defense Department -- was conducted at approximately 9:15 a.m. local time (2:15 a.m. ET) Tuesday, about the same time that Russia's Interfax news agency reported that the launch was detected by a radar station at Armavir, near the Black Sea.
Russia's state-owned news agency RIA originally said radar detected two ballistic 'objects' that were fired from the central Mediterranean Sea. Originally, a spokeswoman for the Israeli military told Reuters that Israel was "not aware of such an event having occurred." However, approximately an hour later, Israel acknowledged that it fired a new Sparrow missile.
“This is the first flight out test of this new version of the Sparrow, and was conducted at Israeli test range over the Mediterranean sea,” the Defense Ministry said in a statement, according to The Times of Israel. “All the elements of the system performed according to their operational configuration."
The Sparrow is a medium-range guided missile that can be launched either from the surface or the air to hit aerial targets, according to the manufacturer.
The Israeli Defense Ministry said the missile followed its planned trajectory, while the U.S.-funded Arrow missile defense system successfully detected and tracked the target, the ministry said.
Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said in a statement Tuesday that the test was "long planned to help evaluate the Arrow Ballistic Missile Defense system's ability to detect, track, and communicate information about a simulated threat to Israel."
But U.S. officials earlier told Fox News that senior Pentagon leadership was unaware of plans to test part of the missile defense system on Tuesday. The officials said the U.S. Missile Defense Agency may have played a role in the test.
"This test had nothing to do with United States consideration of military action to respond to Syria's chemical weapons attack," Little added.
Arrow designer Uzi Rabin told Reuters that tests of the system are usually planned "long in advance" and go unnoticed.
"What apparently made the difference today is the high state of tension over Syria and Russia's unusual vigilance," he said.
Initial speculation that Syria was the target of the missiles proved premature after the Russian embassy in Damascus reported no explosions or sign of a missile attack in the Syrian capital, according to the Itar-Tass news agency. An RIA source in Damascus had reported that objects fell into the sea.
On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called his country's missile defense systems a "wall of iron," according to Reuters.
"These things give us the power to protect ourselves, and anyone who considers harming us would do best not to," he said during a speech.
The report of the missile test is likely to further increase tensions in the region as President Barack Obama is due to arrive in Russia Tuesday for the G20 summit. The U.S. and Russia have clashed over the proper course of action in the wake of a reported chemical attack by forces loyal to Syria President Bashar Assad last month. On Monday, Russia Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the evidence of the attack presented by the U.S. and its allies was "utterly unconvincing."
A defense ministry official has also criticized the United States for deploying warships so close to the Syria coast. At least three U.S. ships are already in the eastern Mediterranean, while the USS Nimitz carrier group, which includes four destroyers, has been moved from the Indian Ocean to the Red Sea. In response, Interfax reported on Monday that Russia would be sending a reconnaissance ship to the eastern Mediterranean.

As one who lived through the Cuban Missile Crisis fifty-one years ago, during which the nuclear forces of the United States of America were placed on a "Defcon 2" alert level, and the Yom Kippur War forty years ago next month, during which the nuclear forces of the United States of America were placed on "Defcon 3" alert, the run-up to the eventual attack on Syria by the military forces of the United States of America sure looks to have the potential to lead a full-scale war with the Russian Federation if the proxy war against it in Syria that this country will be waging soon goes awry.
Although I am very slow to believe the reports on various websites claiming to have "inside information," I did see a strange sight when running errands yesterday in the form of a large converted bus that had the following words printed on both sides in red in huge block letters: "Mass Evacuation and Casualty Ambulance." Perhaps this was just a routine sighting. Perhaps not.
Time will tell.
The drum beats for a global war to accomplish various ends of social engineering and to collapse the American dollar do seem to be for real.
When AIPAC Calls, John Boehner and Eric Cantor Listen
Some well-meaning "conservatives" have coined the acronym "RINO" (Republicans in name only) to categorize careerists in the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist "right" who always wind up doing the bidding of their false opposites in the organized crime family of the "left" and/or dance to the tune of public opinion on such violations of the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law as the chemical and surgical execution of innocent preborn children and the granting of legal "marriage" status to those engaged in unrepentant sins of perversity.
This categorization is as false as the phrase "Islamofascist" as careerist Republicans are the Republican Party just as much as so-called "radical Islamists" are nothing other than believing, faithful disciples of the blasphemous, murderous, polygamous false prophet named Mohammed.
Two so-called "RINOs," John A. Boehner, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives (R-Ohio), and Eric Cantor, the Majority Leader of the United States House of Representatives (R-Virginia), have joined the Bobbsey Twins of the United States Senate, John Sidney McCain III and Lindsay Graham, in voicing their public support for Obama/Soetoro's plans to "retaliate" against Syria for the Bashar al-Assad's regime alleged use of chemical weapons against the fractious alliance of believing, faithful Mohammedan rebels:
Speaker John A. Boehner, who with other Congressional leaders met Mr.
Obama in the Oval Office, said afterward that he would “support the
president’s call to action,” an endorsement quickly echoed by the House
majority leader, Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia.
On Tuesday evening, Democrats and Republicans on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee agreed on the wording of a resolution that would give Mr. Obama the authority to carry out a strike against
Syria, for a period of 60 days, with one 30-day extension. A committee
vote on the measure could come as early as Wednesday.
Uncertainties abound, particularly in the House, where the imprimatur of
the Republican leadership does not guarantee approval by rebellious
rank and file, and where vocal factions in both parties are opposed to
anything that could entangle the nation in another messy conflict in the
Still, the expressions of support from top Republicans who rarely agree
with Mr. Obama on anything suggest the White House may be on firmer
footing than seemed the case on Saturday, when the president abruptly
halted his plans for action in the face of growing protests from
Mr. Obama is now headed to Sweden and Russia, where he will try to shore
up an international coalition to punish Syria for a chemical weapons
attack and will probably encounter some of the same debates that are
cleaving the Capitol.
Before his departure, the White House intensified what has become the
most extraordinary lobbying campaign of Mr. Obama’s presidency as it
deployed members of his war council and enlisted political alumni of his
2008 campaign to press the argument with the public.
“This is not the time for armchair isolationism,” said Secretary of
State John Kerry, who answered sharp questions and defended the
administration’s strategy for Syria in nearly four hours of sometimes
sharp exchanges before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Mr. Kerry stirred some confusion about the potential scope of American
military involvement when he tried to carve out an exception to a
proposed Congressional prohibition on the use of ground troops in Syria —
something Mr. Obama and other officials have long ruled out as a
If Syria were to fall into complete chaos and if the chemical weapons of
President Bashar al-Assad’s government there were at risk of falling
into the hands of a militant group like Al Nusra, Mr. Kerry said, “I
don’t want to take off the table an option that might or might not be
available to a president of the United States to secure our country.”
Later, under questioning by Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, the ranking
Republican, Mr. Kerry walked back his comment, insisting that he had
only been speaking about a hypothetical case. “Let’s shut that door now
as tight as we can,” Mr. Kerry said, without quite doing so. “There will
not be American boots on the ground with respect to the civil war" . . . .
A spokesman for Mr. Boehner said that despite his support for Mr. Obama,
the Republican leadership would not lean on other Republicans to vote
for military action and would leave that lobbying to the White House.
Mr. Boehner’s stance will ease the pressure on him from members of his
party, who believe the United States has no business in Syria. It will
increase the pressure on Ms. Pelosi.
The calendar is Mr. Obama’s enemy: Many members from both parties are
still back in their districts hearing from constituents, and the
feedback, based on numerous interviews, is overwhelmingly negative.
On Tuesday, however, a powerful pro-Israel lobbying group, the American
Israel Public Affairs Committee, threw its support behind military
action in Syria, citing the need to send a strong message to Iran and
the militant group Hezbollah, both of which support Mr. Assad.
“Iran is watching us very carefully,” said Representative Eliot L.
Engel, Democrat of New York and a staunch defender of Israel. (Leaders Express Their Support for Syria Strike.)
Yes, no matter the overwhelming public opposition in the United States of America to Obama/Soetoro's proposed assault on Syria that has nothing to do with the legitimate national security interests of the United States of America, when AIPAC calls, my friends, men such as Boehner and Cantor, a Talmudist who is also a thirty-third degree Freemason, listen and obey.
Who cares about Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro's textbook case of how not to exercise presidential leadership by signaling his intention to attack a sovereign nation without, at least at first, even consulting Congressional leaders before changing his mind at the last minute in a move that gave the leaders of Syria a chance to plan for a counterattack?
Who cares about the simple fact that that a mere Congressional resolution to "authorize" Obama/Soetoro to strike Syria is completely unconstitutional?
Who cares about whether the alleged intelligence information provided by the likes of the pro-abortion, pro-perversity John F. Kerry is accurate or manufactured?
No, when AIPAC calls, you see, the books get cooked in hurry.
The attack on Syria is just a not a time, not a matter of "if."
Francis the Delusional Enters Again
Although the lateness of the hour at which this is being written (2:21 a.m., Eastern Daylight Saving Time) simply precludes much more than a cursory discussion of Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis's call for a "day of prayer and fasting" for peace on Saturday, September 7, 2013, the day before the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Commemoration of Saint Aidan, suffice it to say for the moment that it is impossible to beg peace from God through the intercession of Our Lady, Queen of Peace, by provoking His wrath by inviting leaders and adherents of the false religions of the world to join him as he prays:
What can we do to make peace in the world? As Pope John said, it pertains to each individual to establish new relationships in human society under the mastery and guidance of justice and love.
“All men and women of good will are bound by the task of pursuing peace. I make a forceful and urgent call to the entire Catholic Church, and also to every Christian of other confessions, as well as to followers of every religion and to those brothers and sisters who do not believe: peace is a good which overcomes every barrier, because it belongs all of humanity!
“I repeat forcefully: it is neither a culture of confrontation nor a culture of conflict which builds harmony within and between peoples, but rather a culture of encounter and a culture of dialogue; this is the only way to peace.
“May the plea for peace rise up and touch the heart of everyone so that they may lay down their weapons and let themselves be led by the desire for peace.
“To this end, brothers and sisters, I have decided to proclaim for the whole Church on 7 September next, the vigil of the birth of Mary, Queen of Peace, a day of fasting and prayer for peace in Syria, the Middle East, and throughout the world, and I also invite each person, including our fellow Christians, followers of other religions and all men of good will, to participate, in whatever way they can, in this initiative.
“On 7 September, in Saint Peter’s Square, here, from 7 p.m. until 12 a.m. we will gather in prayer and in a spirit of penance, invoking God’s great gift of peace upon the beloved nation of Syria and upon each situation of conflict and violence around the world. Humanity needs to see these gestures of peace and to hear words of hope and peace! I ask all the local churches, in addition to fasting, that they gather to pray for this intention. (Francis the Delusional Convokes a Day of Prayer and Penance for Peace in the Middle East.)
Although, duties-of-state permitting, this will be explored (along with Bergoglio/Francis's other latest comments and plans) in greater depth in tomorrow's posting on this site, suffice it to say for the moment that those who make war upon the honor and glory and majesty of God by preaching false, blasphemous, heretical doctrines and engaging in sacrilegious liturgies and treating the beliefs of false religions with respect can never serve as instruments of peace.
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has shown us the path to peace, and it runs through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary:
On 13 June 1929 Lucia saw another important apparition involving Mary as she was making a Holy Hour in the convent chapel at Tuy in Spain, as was her custom on Thursday nights from eleven to twelve. She was alone, praying the prayers of the Angel in the dim light of the sanctuary lamp when,
"Suddenly the whole chapel was illumined by a supernatural light, and above the altar appeared a Cross of light, reaching to the ceiling. In a brighter light on the upper part of the Cross, could be seen the face of a man and his body as far as the waist; upon his breast was a dove of light; nailed to the Cross was the body of another man. A little below the waist, I could see a chalice and a large Host suspended in the air, onto which drops of blood were falling from the Face of Jesus Crucified and from the wound in His side.
These drops ran down onto the Host and fell into the chalice. Beneath the right arm of the Cross was Our Lady and in her hand was her Immaculate Heart. (It was Our Lady of Fatima, with her Immaculate Heart in her left hand, without sword or roses, but with a crown of thorns and flames). Under the left arm of the Cross, large letters, as if of crystal clear water which ran down upon the altar, formed these words: 'Grace and Mercy.' "
At this point Lucia explained that she understood the apparition was a representation of the Holy Trinity, as she heard Mary speak to her: "The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father, in union with all the Bishops in the world, to make the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, promising to save it by this means. There are so many souls whom the Justice of God condemns for sins committed against me, that I have come to ask reparation: sacrifice yourself for this intention and pray."
Lucia told all this to her confessor who ordered her to write it down, and she also said that later on Jesus had spoken as follows to her: "They did not wish to heed My request. Like the king of France, they will repent and do it, but it will be late. Russia will have already spread her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church; the Holy Father will have much to suffer."(Mary's words at Fatima.)
We lack a true pope at this time to fulfill Our Lady's Fatima Message.
For our parts, however, we can and must fulfill Our Lady's Fatima Peace Plan in our own lives, especially as we make reparation for our own sins and those of the whole world by offering one Rosary after another to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.
All human "peace plans" to produce "peace" in the Middle East have come to naught, and the leaders of the United States of America who are engaged in a daily chemical and surgical warfare against the innocent preborn are just as disqualified from speaking sanctimoniously about the alleged use of chemical weapons as the likes of Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis is to preach about peace.
Both the lords of Modernity in the world and those of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism make a major war such as could break out following this country's impending attack on Syria more possible as God chastises us all for the horrific stench of sin that defiles the good order and the beauty of the world He created and in which we are to know, love and serve Him as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His Catholic Church.
Only Our Lady's Fatima Peace Plan can succeed, which is why we must be earnest about fulfilling it in our own lives on a daily basis so that we will be counted as faithful disciples of Christ the King as our prayers for peace in Syria at this time, which are indeed very important to pray, will only be heard if we quit our sins and attempt to make reparation for them as His consecrated slaves through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother.
