Jim Fetzer and I got into some "dynamic" differences of opinion on two big issues: (1) Obama vs. the Republicans & (2) the Nazi holocaust. Check it out! Below the video is Jim's summary.
According to the latest reports, Abu Anas Al-Libi wad captured Saturday, which appears to be an instance of the "kill and reanimate program", which brought us the second death of Osama bin Laden. The US has announced that Special Forces abducted him from Libya, where he is alleged to be a senior al Qaeda leader with a $5 million bounty for involvement in the bombings of American embassies in Uganda and in Kenya in 1998. But Al-Libi was killed years ago, just as bin Laden did not die in the attack on the Pakistan compound but died in Afghanistan in mid-December 2001. This means that the anti-terrorism "catch and release" program has now morphed into a "kill and reanimate" program, where Al-Libi is its latest success story, enhancing the prestige of the international US anti-terrorism effort.
The government shut-down: While Sen. Ted Cruz may be popular within his own party, the consequences of a default on its debts by the US would lead to a drop in the nation's credit rating, higher interest rates for money borrowed and an increase in home mortgage interest rates. The public is responding very negatively, where estimates have it that the GOP will lose at least 17 seats--enough for the Democrats to retake control of the House--and some have it as high as 30. Where there appear to be more than sufficient votes to pass a "clean resolution" raising the debt, the house leader is refusing to allow a vote and continues to attempt to extort the administration to revise the Affordable Care Act (aka "Obamacare"), when it has been signed into law and upheld by the Supreme Court. This makes a mockery of democracy and raises questions about US governance world-wide.
The use of electronic voting machines has tilted national elections in favor of the GOP by an average of 6 points since 2000, where the most egregious case was Ohio in 2004. The raw data was being sent to a basement operation in Chattanooga, TN, where the numbers were massaged by Karl Rove before being sent back to Ohio to be released by Ken Blackwell, who was not only Secretary of State but co-chair of the Ohio Committee to Reelect Bush and Cheney. It would have happened again in 2012 but for the vigilance of Bob Fitrakis, an attorney from Columbus, OH (who co-authored WHAT HAPPENED IN OHIO: A documentary record of theft and fraud in the 2004 election) and others, who were prepared to take immediate legal action had the same scheme been implemented again.
Jim and Kevin differ about the differences between the parties, where Jim perceives the Democrats as standing up for Social Security, Medicate, Medicaid, unemployment insurance and a host of other programs that benefit the people, while Kevin is more skeptical. That the GOP represents the interests of a shrinking percentage of the voting public means that they are unlikely to win future federal elections without cheating, lying and stealing. Election theft is the real issue, not voter fraud, which is extremely rare in the US. The GOP focus on voter fraud is a red herring to divert attention from election theft, which is serious problem and whose solution requires abandoning the use of electronic voting machines, which are owned by companies with close ties to the GOP. Neither party is doing enough to confront this problem, which is extremely troubling.
John Kerry not only threw in the hat when the Ohio outcome was undecided but, as our new US Secretary of State, has been promoting the false position that Iran is developing nuclear weapons, even though our own intel agencies concluded in 2007 and again in 2011 that that was not the case, which means that the UN's sanctions on Iran are a form of collective punishment, which was found to be a war crime by the Nuremberg Tribunal. Kevin remains skeptical and believes both parties are in collusion, but where Albany, NY, has become the first city to declare its emancipation from the NDAA and that its police and law-enforcement officials are responsible for resisting and not enforcing strictures for the arrest and detention of citizens without due process. Netanyahu, incidentally, who flew to Washington to berate Obama for being receptive to open diplomatic relations with Iran, overplayed his hand by broadcasting into Iran that, with a different regime, the young people of Iran would be able to wear jeans and listen to Western music, which the already do. And elections in Iran appear to be at least as free as those conducted in the USA.
Muslims in Peshawar, Pakistan, formed a human chain to protect Christians during mass, after a "Pakistani Taliban bomb" had killed more than 80 men, women and children after a mass two weeks ago. Much, if not all, of the "Pakistani Taliban" consists of individuals such as Raymond David, a CIA Blackwater contractor arrested on 27 January 2011 in Lahore after killing two policemen who were attempting to detain him for questioning. David appears to have been organizing "Pakistani Taliban" bombings of mosques and markets. Following his arrest, a disinformation effort (spearheaded by Sorcha Faal, a notoriously unreliable source) tried to cover up his "false flag" terrorism campaign by suggesting the far-fetched theory that his "real mission" was to provide al Qaeda with a nuclear weapon.
The ADL, better known as "The Defamation League", continues to defame Americans and others who do not toe the Zionist line on the program for a Greater Israel (extending from the Tigris-Euphrates to the Nile). Their latest targets included J. Bruce Campbell (who, like Kevin and Jim, writes for Veterans Today), Dr. Michael Hoffman, Minister Farrakhan and Dr. Kevin MacDonald. Jim knows Kevin MacDonald from The Evolution and Human Behavior Society, where he explained that Zionists adopt a group evolutionary strategy of advancing the interests of the members of their group at the expense of the interests of others. In the Middle East, the Zionist agenda appears to be complemented by the interests of the international bankers, especially the Rothschilds, where the seven countries targeted by the US for destabilization--Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran--are Muslim nations where usury is not permitted. The bankers' motives for supporting these interventions were illustrated by the "rebels" first act in Libya, which was founding a new central bank, which meant their agenda was other than proclaimed.
Netanya has not only promoted the false belief that Iran wants to destroy Israel but, in another stunning example of the power of mistranslation, the msm has promoted the idea that Rouhani endorsed the Holocaust as "a great crime against Jews", which was an issue he sidestepped. Jim's research suggests that the claim of 6,000,000 Jews having died in concentration camps was based on theology and not on history. The International
Committee of the Red Cross, which visited the camps, supports a number in the 270,000 range, where 600,000 may be a close approximation of the total number of gypsies, Jews and the mentally and physically infirm who were killed. Robert Faurisson's "Against
Hollywoodism, Revisionism" reports that Allied bombing of German cities had interdicted railroad lines and made it impossible to resupply the camps. Regardless of controversies over exact numbers, there are excellent reasons to pursue research on complex historical events like the Holocaust, none that justify laws against freedom of research or speech.
