"The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media." ~ William Colby, Former Director, CIA

   

Most of them have been given Pulitzer Prizes for “distinguished commentary.” Their work appears in hundreds of American publications.  They command huge salaries and they appear on most of the television news programs.  Their books invariably enjoy instant access to publicity and become bestsellers.  They are the made men of the media mafia.  And they are all “owned,” as the late William Colby once admitted.

Fox's 24: propaganda thinly disguised as television programming

24

Last week, a comment appeared on the World Socialist Web Site describing the phenomenon of “Reality TV.” [“Reality television” and the American reality that produces it] There is another genre of network television drama that is every bit as psychologically and socially toxic. These are broadcast television series that openly serve a right-wing political agenda. I am referring to shows like JAG, which glorifies the military, and to the ubiquitous cop shows that now regularly top the ratings on network television.

The weekly Fox network television series entitled 24 is an extreme example of this genre. Its propaganda value is revealed in story lines that promote racist stereotypes of Arab Americans and other ethnic groups. Even more politically insidious, this year’s season is replete with scenes of torture administered to various suspected terrorists or their associates by US government operatives. 24 offers such stomach-turning scenes every week. These sequences no doubt reflect, first of all, the sadistic imaginations of those producing the program. They are also designed to shock and presumably appeal to the most backward viewers—a politically perverse example of the scenes that characterize a show like Fear Factor. Moreover, this systematic presentation of torture is intended to inure the population and convey the message that this barbaric treatment is somehow acceptable in the “global war on terror.

tvFurthermore, the evisceration of education fuses with the dumbed down escapism and fictions of television to create a population addiction to and reliant on modern civilization's new drug of choice. In television, the Establishment and the government it owns have found the most powerful tool at their disposal to control, condition and manipulate a population to the dictates of power. Simply put, the television has become, in the span of a few decades, the fireworks erupting in the wet dreams of every Joseph Goebbels alive today, a propagandist's manna from heaven and the Establishment's weapon of choice in the pursuit of mind control and thought manipulation.

The Stranger

author unknown

A few months before I was born, my Dad met a stranger who was new to our small Tennessee town. From the beginning, Dad was fascinated with this enchanting newcomer and soon invited him to live with our family. The stranger was quickly accepted and was around to welcome me into the world a few months later.

As I grew up, I never questioned his place in my family. In my young mind, he had a special niche. My parents were complementary instructors: Mom taught me the  word of God, and Dad taught me to obey it. But the stranger?

He was our storyteller. He would keep us spellbound for hours on end with adventures, mysteries and comedies. If I wanted to know anything about politics, history or science, he always knew the answers about the past, understood the present and even seemed able to predict  the  future! He took my family to the first major league ball game. He made me laugh, and he made me cry. The stranger never stopped talking, but Dad didn't seem to mind.

Sometimes Mom would get up quietly while the rest of us were shushing each other to listen to what he had to say, and  she would go to her room and read her books.  (I wonder now if she ever prayed for the stranger to leave.)

Dad ruled our household with certain moral convictions, but the stranger never felt obligated to honor them.  Profanity, for example, was not allowed in our home... not from us, our friends or any visitors. Our  long-time visitor, however, got away with four-letter words that burned my ears and made my dad squirm and my mother blush.

My Dad was a teatotaler who didn't permit alcohol in the home, not even for cooking. But the stranger encouraged us to try it on a regular basis. He made cigarettes look cool, cigars manly and pipes distinguished. He talked freely (much too freely!) about sex. His comments were sometimes blatant, sometimes suggestive, and generally embarrassing. I now know that my early concepts about relationships were influenced strongly by the stranger. Time after time, he opposed the values of my parents, yet he was seldom rebuked...  and NEVER asked to leave.

More than fifty years have passed since the stranger moved in with our family. He has blended right in and is not nearly as fascinating as he was at first.

Still, if you were to walk into my parents' den today you would still find him sitting over in his corner, waiting for someone to listen to him talk and watch him draw his pictures.

His name? We just call him TV.

Mass Manipulation

by Steve Manning



I hope this finds all of the Strait Truth forum well and in good spirit.

Many have claimed religion is the opiate of the masses. Since an opiate "distorts one view of reality" this is a correct statement.

Humans rely on religion to rationalize and justify their belief in fairy tales.

Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny are actually part of the apostate modern day christian belief system.

Most christians who accept modern day teachings disregard the fact these holi-days, stolen obviously from the Creator's Holy Days, are steeped in pagan origins.

Pagan origins, a belief system separate from the actual Truth found in the teachings of our Creator. Pagan people, those outside of the Truth of the Creator.

Humans also use religion to wait on fairy tale events such as the rapture. This event, an event which is always in the future, makes it possible for millions of so called followers of the Christ, the spiritual SON to remain blind and dumb. They use these children's stories to dismiss their accountability of our sins.

We have all witnessed video footage of the recent Tsunami events.

I was dumbfounded to witness a man standing at the ocean's shore watching one of the waves approaching him. Like a deer in the headlights of an oncoming vehicle he stood their frozen, unable to comprehend his impending doom. Sure enough he was overcome by the wave and disappeared into the water never to be seen again. This reminded me of the millions of christians who wait on their savior to rapture them away from a world they are helping destroy. This man was dragged back into the sea. If christians don't wake up REAL SOON they will be washed away as well.

All mass manipulation has a delivery system.

Opiates must be injected or inhaled.

Tsunami's are caused by a disruption to the ocean floor. (Evil mankind has the technology to do this)

Modern day christianity, churchianity, is delivered by and controlled by the adversary Satan. Satan calls upon his minnions to deliver his lies either in person or via the greatest delivery system of this time, television.

Ah, the modern marvel television. Visions implanted via electronic signal and accepted through the eyes and ears of a human.

Television has been, and will be used to rewrite history and educate a dumbed down human race into believing fair tales and lies of the greatest proportion.

For nearly 45 days after all the christians gave thanks on thanksgiving, another lie, they were inundated with subliminal messages as to why they should run out and spend their money on behalf of a jolly old st. nick. Like good little slaves they cut down millions of trees, adorned them with silly trinkets and worshipped commercialism and Satan himself.

It's Official: TV Linked to Attention Deficit

A study from the American Academy of Pediatrics shows that watching videos as a toddler may lead to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD, also called ADD in UK) in later life.

Denunciations of television have become as routine as breathing: the programming is crass, stupid, propagandistic, so bad that only an idiot would watch it yet everybody does. Actually things are worse. They are much worse.

To see what is happening, start with what may be the crucial truth of our times: People will watch a screen. They will watch anything in preference to nothing, watch programs they don't really like, comedies so unfunny that only the laugh track tells them when to respond. The bright know that the fare is witless, that it is directed at fools. The ads irritate them. Yet they too watch.

My First (and Last) Time With Bill O'Reilly

http://www.thenation.com/doc.mhtml?i=20040719&s=coleweb



by DAVID COLE

It started innocuously enough. On Monday, June 21, a producer from Fox News's The O'Reilly Factor called to ask me to appear as a guest that evening to comment on a front-page story in the New York Times claiming that the Bush Administration had overstated the value of intelligence gained at Guantánamo and the dangers posed by the men detained there. I'm generally not a fan of shout-television, and I had declined several prior invitations to appear on O'Reilly's show, but this time I said yes. Little did I know it would not only be my first time, but also my last.

The Lulling Before the Culling - The "Quiet War" Against Humanity





By Henry Makow Ph.D.
July 17, 2004

The truth is at once simpler and more horrifying than anyone could conceive.

A satanic cult headquartered in the City of London holds mankind in bondage.

They worship Lucifer and are determined to redefine reality and rule the planet. If you owned an unseemly proportion of the world's wealth, would you share it with the ignorant masses? Wouldn't you teach that God is dead, and Truth and Justice are not absolute and universal?
http://i.am/jah/300.htm

The religion to fear is Satanism, which has infiltrated Freemasonry and most other religions, institutions and groups. Secret Satanists control the levers of power: credit, mass media, education, government and the church. They pay lip service to Christianity to deceive us.
http://i.am/jah/darth.htm

This cult is gradually corrupting and dehumanizing, conditioning us to passively accept a police state (New World Order). They lull and distract while they eliminate our freedoms and prepare for repression, using phony "terrorism" as a pretext.

In a 1961 lecture, Aldous Huxley described this police state as "the final revolution": a "dictatorship without tears" where people "love their servitude."

He said the goal is to produce " a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away ... but ... will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing ... enhanced by pharmacological methods."
http://i.am/jah/drugs.htm

Among these " pharmacological methods" we can now recognize Ritalin, Prozac and Viagra, which healthy men commonly use. Doctors are elite dealers designated to addict and sedate society. A document entitled "Quiet Weapons for Silent Wars" confirms this is part of the quiet war against humanity.

Children, Television and Attention Deficit Disorders

A new study appearing in the April issue of Pediatrics concludes that children who watch television experience shortened attention spans and considerably enhances the chances, based on number of hours of television watched, of developing ADDs (attention deficit disorders) later on in life. The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended that children under the age of two not watch television and this new study seems to validate such a recommendation.

From: mark


Dear All,

We hope this finds you well and in good spirit.

Not to argue semantics here, but we believe you have missed the point of the article. This is about control... control over every aspect of your life... to the point of servitude (slavery) to the beast system.  The Zionist so called "Jewish" Elite control all of the main stream media in this country. We have forwarded many articles revealing this fact. Disney is but one of the eight major corporate media conglomerates.

Christ's Revelation to his Apostle John 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and [I know] the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are NOT, but [are] (Idumeans) the synagogue of Satan. 

Have you ever seen the movie "The Wizard of Oz"? Well hopefully you have. In the end the little dog Toto unmasks the power behind the wizard by pulling back the "curtain" revealing a selfish old man pulling a bunch of levers, by which he controls the "grand illusion". The old man has no more power to grant any wishes to the "seekers", than any other person on this planet. We have all been mind-controlled from cradle to grave to keep us all away from The Truth, which is True Freedom in servitude to God, through His Laws (The Way). 

Have you seen the new movie "The Last Samurai" with Tom Cruz? The Samurai, through constant discipline, focus, pursuit of Truth and practice to perfection, live in relative peace and harmony with nature. They do so by living by 'The Way of The Sword' (a.k.a. The Truth). We are told in the movie that they lived harmoniously for a thousand years this way until greedy and evil men attack them to destroy all that they stand for, calling them the barbarians in the process. http://i.am/jah/defin.htm

Police State Product Placement


http://www.prisonplanet.com/jones_report_010603_product.html

Alex Jones January 6 2003

Five years ago I would talk about a New World Order, a global government, an international criminal court, a world taxation system, a pan-American union. About half the callers to my radio show didn't believe me and said that I was making it all up. Now we don't get those callers and my show is conservatively a hundred times larger. Along with a massive expansion of affiliates that cover 35 states, I also have one of the biggest Internet listening audiences out there.

Now that the show has grown, you don't hear people calling in and saying 'the UN isn't going to take over' or 'there is no international criminal court' or 'there is no plan to destroy America from within'. I got on the air with the documents year after year along with many other great broadcasters and writers and told people what was going to happen. Now they've seen it happen on the nightly news, albeit with the Globalist spin on it saying it's all a good idea and we should just accept it. People still aren't taking enough action against the agenda because they feel as though they don't have any power. Believe me, you do have power. This global plantation will not succeed unless you forget your responsibility and don't get involved.

One of the most prominent and overriding factors that threatens us is distraction.

I was doing a broadcast in which we had a lot of callers from all over the country. Several of them would call in and bring up issues that we could not prove, issues that are speculative. I don't do that. I know the overall Globalist plan, what they're putting out, what their propaganda is and what their training is for their minions, so I will communicate to you what their long-term strategic goals are. They have said that they're going to use terrorism to convince us to accept this tyranny. It's all out in the open, so all I really do is project what's going to happen in the future from the voluminous data that suggests the future itself is set in stone unless we resist it.

The Globalists have a tactic whereby they will bind with a poison pill and piggyback kooky things with real factual evidence. They have a plethora of overnight nationally syndicated talk show hosts on air all week and every weekend, television and movie scripts, which discuss thing like
FEMA taking over and putting us all in camps and tyrannical world government. But then it will be followed with something like 'it's run from the South Pole by aliens' or 'it's run out of Area 51 by demons' - just incredibly ridiculous stuff. Then you have popular authors who will write about how the Federal Reserve is private and run for profit or how there is a Bilderberg group but will then go on to say 'oh, by the way, it's blood-drinking reptoid lizards from the 4th dimension, they run the whole show'. This kind of drivel is promoted and given airtime by the establishment. You can see it on shows like The X-Files - FEMA's in control, there's a secret government, but it's the aliens. So then when I get on the air and read out of UPI about FEMA's plans for mass round-ups, the average person listening has been inoculated against what I'm saying. They automatically say 'oh you mean space aliens, ha ha ha'.

United States: US media subservient to the state

http://www.indexonline.org/news/20030919_unitedstates.shtml

Playing piano in the war whorehouse

CNN journalist Christiane Amanpour says the US media allowed themselves to be 'intimidated' into following the US official line in Iraq. Veteran journalist Nicholas von Hoffman takes a tougher view... Simply put,' he argues, 'the American mass media put itself at the service of the state'.

On 24 June 1876, elements of the United States Army's 7th Cavalry Division, commanded by George Armstrong Custer, engaged a group of Sioux and Cheyenne braves led by Chief Sitting Bull at Little Big Horn, Montana. The skirmish that ensued resulted in the death of Custer and all of his 250 men --twice the number of fatalities so far sustained by the United States 127 years later in its "war" with Iraq.

Like many a sight seen in the deserts through which the US military's Humvee jeeps drove this winter, the war was mostly mirage, something that evidently escaped the notice of the hundreds of correspondents sent to cover it. What one overheated television reporter compared to the Battle of the Somme was little more than what in Los Angeles they call a drive-by shooting.

It is only a mild exaggeration to say that American service personnel in Iraq were in greater danger from absent-mindedly-driven Coca-Cola trucks than from the opposing army, which had less firepower than that deployed by the police department in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Conquering by bribing people on the other side is an ancient and civilised form of warfare and if it was practised by the United States in Iraq it would explain the absence of anything that can remotely be called a battle. Evidence supporting the great non-conflict hypothesis surfaced in an article by Vago Muradian in the 19 May edition of Defense News, an arms industry publication living on the best of terms with the Pentagon brass.

The article quotes General Tommy Franks, the man who ran the alleged war, as saying, by way of an explanation for the absurdly easy American victory, "I had letters from Iraqi Generals saying,  'I now work for you.'"  Another Pentagon official told the reporter, ". . . we knew how many of these [Iraqi generals] were going to call in sick."

And finally there is this quotation: "What is the effect you want? How much does a cruise missile cost? Between US$1 and $2 million. Well, a bribe is a PGM, a much cheaper precision-guided munition; "it achieves the aim but it's bloodless and there is zero collateral damage."

The news that there was no war because the other side was paid to take a family leave day was picked up by Fred Kaplan, one of the best military journalists about, who published these good tidings on the internet in Slate magazine on 20 May - and there the story died.

SPIN - by Brian Springer

Spin

As a TV democracy, the U.S. is linked into one televised nation throgh the use of Satellite feeds. These feeds carry the live raw TV image before it has been packed by the networks with music, graphics or commercials. Satellite feeds reveal images of TV personalities in from a live camera with open microphones before they go on-air and again during commercial breaks. Because the feeds are sent out unscrambled and are visible to over 4 million dish owners across America, anyone with a home dish can tune them in. The networks view the nation as one big patch bay on which they can spill feeds of TV personalities being made up, cajoling, primping and whispering. To the networks, these feed out-takes are trash, and to most home dish-owners, boring. To me, the feeds are a window into the construction and performance of character, and the floating TV talk-show called the 1992 U.S. Presidential election.

Seven Jewish Americans Control Most US Media

Seven Jewish Americans Control Most US Media
From John Whitley

Not a single announcement will reach the public without our control. Even now this is already being attained by us inasmuch as all news items are received by a few agencies, in whose offices they are focused from all parts of the world. These agencies will then be already entirely ours and will give publicity only to what we dictate to them.

- Protocol 12: 4. The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, see Protocol 12 titled: Control of the Press



"Today, seven Jewish Americans run the vast majority of US television networks, the printed press, the Hollywood movie industry, the book publishing industry, and the recording industry. Most of these industries are bundled into huge media conglomerates run by the following seven individuals:

Gerald Levin, CEO and Director of AOL Time Warner

Michael Eisner, Chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company

Edgar Bronfman, Sr., Chairman of Seagram Company Ltd

Edgar Bronfman, Jr, President and CEO of Seagram Company Ltd and head of Universal Studios

Sumner Redstone, Chairman and CEO of Viacom, Inc

Dennis Dammerman, Vice Chairman of General Electric

Peter Chernin, President and Co-COO of News Corporation Limited

Those seven Jewish men collectively control ABC, NBC, CBS, the Turner Broadcasting System, CNN, MTV, Universal Studios, MCA Records, Geffen Records, DGC Records, GRP Records, Rising Tide Records, Curb/Universal Records, and Interscope Records.

BBC Study Says Reports From Embeds Were 'Almost Fictional'

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/3247267.stm

A report commissioned by the BBC has found that reporters 'embedded' withmilitary units during the war in Iraq gave a sanitised picture of events.Closeness to the units did not make reporters less objective, the study bythe Cardiff School of Journalism says. However, it concludes that British broadcasting culture made it impossible to show the full horror of war...The authors said that embedded reporters actually provided a more balancedaccount than some studio-based journalists, who were sometimes'inadvertently tilted towards certain pro-war assumptions'... However, theteam were concerned that, for 'entirely laudable' reasons, it wasimpossible to show particularly violent or graphic images on Britishtelevision. Journalists were aware of this and fashioned their coverageaccordingly, with the result that people felt they were watching a 'madefor TV' version of war that was sanitised and almost fictional.........

50 False News Stories By Bush Propaganda Machine



50 False News Stories By Bush Propaganda Machine
A Strategy of Lies: How the White House Fed the Public a Steady Diet of Falsehoods

http://www.earthisland.org/project/newsPage2.cfm?news ID=491&pageID=177&subSiteID=44

 

Colonel Sam Gardiner (USAF, Ret.) has identified 50 false news stories created and leaked by a secretive White House propaganda apparatus.
Bush administration officials are probably having second thoughts about their decision to play hardball with former US Ambassador Joseph Wilson. Joe Wilson is a contender. When you play hardball with Joe, you better be prepared to deal with some serious rebound.
 
After Wilson wrote a critically timed New York Times essay exposing as false George W. Bush's claim that Iraq had purchased uranium from Niger, high officials in the White House contacted several Washington reporters and leaked the news that Wilson's wife was a CIA agent.
 
Wilson isn't waiting for George W. Bush to hand over the perp. In mid-October, the former ambassador began passing copies of an embarrassing internal report to reporters across the US. The-Edge has received copies of this document.
 
The 56-page investigation was assembled by USAF Colonel (Ret.) Sam Gardiner. "Truth from These Podia: Summary of a Study of Strategic Influence, Perception Management, Strategic Information Warfare and Strategic Psychological Operations in Gulf II" identifies more than 50 stories about the Iraq war that were faked by government propaganda artists in a covert campaign to "market" the military invasion of Iraq.
 
Gardiner has credentials. He has taught at the National War College, the Air War College and the Naval Warfare College and was a visiting scholar at the Swedish Defense College.
 
According to Gardiner, "It was not bad intelligence" that lead to the quagmire in Iraq, "It was an orchestrated effort [that] began before the war" that was designed to mislead the public and the world. Gardiner's research lead him to conclude that the US and Britain had conspired at the highest levels to plant "stories of strategic influence" that were known to be false.
 
The Times of London described the $200-million-plus US operation as a "meticulously planned strategy to persuade the public, the Congress, and the allies of the need to confront the threat from Saddam Hussein."
 
The multimillion-dollar propaganda campaign run out of the White House and Defense Department was, in Gardiner's final assessment "irresponsible in parts" and "might have been illegal."
 
"Washington and London did not trust the peoples of their democracies to come to the right decisions," Gardiner explains. Consequently, "Truth became a casualty. When truth is a casualty, democracy receives collateral damage." For the first time in US history, "we allowed strategic psychological operations to become part of public affairs... [W]hat has happened is that information warfare, strategic influence, [and] strategic psychological operations pushed their way into the important process of informing the peoples of our two democracies."
 
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announced plans to create an Office of Strategic Influence early in 2002. At the same time British Prime Minister Tony Blair's Strategy Director Alastair Campbell was setting up an identical operation in London.
 
As soon as Pvt. Jessica Lynch was airlifted from her hospital bed, the first call from her "rescue team" went, not to military officials but to Jim Wilkinson, the White House's top propaganda official stationed in Iraq.
White House critics were quick to recognize that "strategic influence" was a euphemism for disinformation. Rumsfeld had proposed establishing the country's first Ministry of Propaganda.
 
The criticism was so severe that the White House backed away from the plan. But on November 18, several months after the furor had died down, Rumsfeld arrogantly announced that he had not been deterred. "If you want to savage this thing, fine: I'll give you the corpse. There's the name. You can have the name, but I'm gonna keep doing every single thing that needs to be done -- and I have."
 
Gardiner's dogged research identified a long list of stories that passed through Rumsfeld's propaganda mill. According to Gardiner, "there were over 50 stories manufactured or at least engineered that distorted the picture of Gulf II for the American and British people." Those stories include:
 
  • The link between terrorism, Iraq and 9/11
  • Iraqi agents meeting with 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta
  • Iraq's possession of chemical and biological weapons.
  • Iraq's purchase of nuclear materials from Niger.
  • Saddam Hussein's development of nuclear weapons.
  • Aluminum tubes for nuclear weapons
  • The existence of Iraqi drones, WMD cluster bombs and Scud missiles.
  • Iraq's threat to target the US with cyber warfare attacks.
  • The rescue of Pvt. Jessica Lynch.
  • The surrender of a 5,000-man Iraqi brigade.
  • Iraq executing Coalition POWs.
  • Iraqi soldiers dressing in US and UK uniforms to commit atrocities.
  • The exact location of WMD facilities
  • WMDs moved to Syria.

Controlling The News: In-House Memos on Television And Print Media News Presentations

"...During the middle of March, 2003, tbrnews received an email from a man who claimed to be a mid-level executive with a major American television network. He stated in this, and subsequent, emails that he was in possession of “thousands” of pages of in-house memos sent from his corporate headquarters in New York City to the head of the network’s television news department. He went on to say that these memos set forth directives about what material was, and was not, to be aired on the various outlets of the network.


a few quotes from the memos:

This individual claimed he was developing serious doubts about the strict control of media events and decided that he would pass this material along to someone who might make use of it...".

(October 12) Apparently, SARS is expected to return with the flu season. No vaccine available so any reporting on this is to be very circumspect. The key word here is “pneumonia” and not SARS…

(October 14) We expect an official release about “large shipments” of Iraqi oil in the near future. Ain’t happening men. Our vehicles can’t even get enough gas there and, believe it or not, their fuel has to be imported from the US!…the sad arrival of dead military personnel at Dover is a thing of the past. Strictly forbidden to comment on or attempt to photograph arriving aircraft with the dead…the higher death tolls are redacted for the time being (waiting for after the elections? Hum?)

(March 19) No mention, repeat, no mention, of Palestinian suicide bombers during the Iraqi operation….

Politics: America's Latest Spectator Sport

 

Charlotte Iserbyt

February 1, 2003

NewsWithViews.com

Americans are accustomed to sitting in front of "the box" and watching sitcoms or their favorite team vanquish its opponent. Recently it seems to this reader that they have added another sport to their list for viewing: POLITICS. They sit watching the nightly news and CNN's drumbeat to go to war, and they munch away on their high carb addictions and consume their favorite beverage as the agenda for the take over of their country passes by on the screen, clearly spelling out a "real agenda" which carries with it a totalitarian system of government being implemented in their back yard.

How much longer will Americans consider POLITICS a spectator sport? How much longer will they play the part of spectator to the following agenda being played out in their back yards?

Dear Rabbi David - My latest thoughts on THE JEWISH PROBLEM


I am forwarding this to others in the hope of fostering a better understanding between Christians; Jews and Muslims, as I have done in compiling "The King of kings' Bible" that includes the Tanach Old Testament/ Covenant; the New Testament/Covenant and the Koran all for the first time ever correctly interpreted and in perfect harmony, cross-referenced with each other and with explanatory notes:-


Let's all hope that David takes heed and works towards educating his Jewish people about the traitors in their midst as Benjamin Freedman so courageously did.


Peace be upon you,


JAH.

Subject: Dear Rabbi David - My latest thoughts on THE JEWISH PROBLEM

Date: Mon, Oct 13, 2003, 7:20 am


Dear Rabbi David Eidensohn, 'Eid111 [at] aol [dot] com' '

 

I want you to know me, understand me. I am a softie who weeps easily at maudlin plots in old fashioned clean movies. I have not been in a fight that I can remember in my entire life. I was the stereotypical 98 pound weakling in High School. I am not now and never have been violent or mean. However, as a teen I sought approval from a peer group that led me into a life of hedonism, womanizing, drinking and partying. I continued this debauched existence until in my late 20's when by the grace of God I went to a church and heard a sermon and then and there I prayed for forgiveness for my sins. My life was changed forever. I began to clean up and live a good life.

However as the years passed I became more and more interested in the political issues of our time that the Christian Right commonly supports and opposes. Then I began to notice that the men sitting on the opposite side of the issue were very often Jewish, aka, an ACLU Jew, or Jewish money, Hollywood Jews, gun hating Jews, fag loving Jews, abortion loving Jews, etc.

Rabbi, I grew up in a home where I never, never, ever heard the word "JEW" not one time in my entire upbringing. My dad was a pharmacist, an educated man and a good provider.

No one in my family was anti-semitic in the least and of course neither was I.

Rabbi, I am not a natural born hater. I do not hate now. If you will listen closely you wil see that I am just crying out for help in the only way I know how to do it.

I am crying out to as many people as possible using every avenue I can find such as my local public access TV show, alerting my co-workers, alerting my fellow church members and using my 1600 email address email list on the Internet to expose the wickedness of these leftwing Jews and the damage they are doing to America.

I am trying to let everyone I can know about what the Jews are doing to destroy the lives of millions of young people, harming our young people, destroying them with non-stop SEX, SEX, SEX and Hollywood Movie and Television filth.

Fast forward into trouble

Four years ago, Bhutan, the fabled Himalayan Shangri-la, became the last nation on earth to introduce television. Suddenly a culture, barely changed in centuries, was bombarded by 46 cable channels. And all too soon came Bhutan's first crime wave - murder, fraud, drug offences. Cathy Scott-Clark and Adrian Levy report from a country crash-landing in the 21st century

CNN using 1991 footage of Palestinians celebrating the invasion

 

According to http://www.snopes.com/rumors/cnn.htm the claims below have later been proven false and the person who made the claim quoted above has since recanted.

 

By Márcio A. V. Carvalho - Brazil

All around the world we are subjected to 3 or 4 huge news distributors, and one of them - as you well know - is CNN. Very well, I guess all of you have been seeing (just as I've been) images from this company. In particular, one set of images called my attention: the Palestinians celebrating the bombing, out on the streets, eating some cake and making funny faces for the camera.

Television: opiate of the masses.

"T.V.
It satellite links
Our United States of Unconsciousness
Apathetic therapeutic and extremely addictive
The methadone metronome pumping out
150 channels 24 hours a day
You can flip through all of them
And still there's nothing worth watching

Scripts can often be the first casualty in Hollywood's theatre of war

Top Gun versus Sergeant Bilko? No contest, says the Pentagon.

Scripts can often be the first casualty in Hollywood's theatre of war.

By Duncan Campbell in Los Angeles

Wednesday August 29, 2001.

Hollywood film-makers have frequently changed plot lines, altered history and amended scripts at the request of the Pentagon, according to recently released military documents. Producers and directors have often agreed to changes in order to gain access to expensive military hardware or to be able to film on military property. On many occasions films have been changed so that the US armed forces are shown in a more heroic fashion. Film companies agree to the changes because doing so saves them millions in production costs. If film-makers do not agree to alterations, assistance is withheld. Among films that have been given approval and help by the Pentagon are Armageddon, Air Force One, The Jackal, Pearl Harbour and Top Gun. Those that have failed the test include Forrest Gump, Mars Attacks!, The Thin Red Line, Apocalypse Now, Sgt Bilko, Platoon and Independence Day.

Television - The Hidden Picture

By Rixon Stewart 2-11-2

The old line about British television being the best in the world is a debateable one. What is beyond dispute though is the fact that Britons are a nation of TV addicts and with the advent of cable and satellite TV that trend is likely to continue. Whether or not that is a good thing is another matter entirely. For its influence could literally be described as deadening, as a growing amount of scientific evidence would seem to indicate. But don,t expect to hear that from the mainstream media, particularly television; there is simply too much at stake here, politically and economically, for what follows to become more widely known.
