Jewish Power Rolls Over Washington

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) has just completed its annual summit in Washington. It claims that 18,000 supporters attended the event, which concluded with a day of lobbying Congress by the attendees. Numerous American politicians addressed the gathering and it is completely reasonable to observe that the meeting constituted the most powerful gathering of people dedicated to promoting the interests of a foreign nation ever witnessed in any country in the history of the world.

There are a number of things that one should understand about the Jewish state of Israel and its powerful American domestic lobby. First of all, the charge that the actions of The Lobby (referred to with capital letters because of its uniqueness and power) inevitably involves dual or even singular allegiance based on religion or tribe to a country where the lobbyist does not actually reside is completely correct by definition of what AIPAC is and why it exists. It claims to work to “ensure that the Jewish state is safe, strong and secure” through “foreign aid, government partnerships, [and] joint anti-terrorism efforts…,” all of which involve the U.S. as the donor and Israel as the recipient.

Being a citizen of a country is not just an accident of birth. It requires loyalty to the interests of that country and to one’s fellow citizens. No two countries have identical interests, something that is particularly true when one is considering Israel, an ethno-religious autocracy, and the United States, where The Lobby works assiduously to compel American government at all levels to adopt positions that are beneficial to Israel and almost invariably harmful to U.S. interests. Asserting that the two nations have nearly identical interests is little more than a fraud.

Second, there is the claim that Israel benefits American security. That is also a lie. Washington’s relationship with Israel, which is now more subservient than it ever has been, is a major liability that is and always has been damaging to both American regional and global interests. The recent decisions to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights were ill-conceived and have been condemned by the world community, including by nearly all of America’s genuine close allies.

The harm done by the Israeli connection to policy formulation in Washington and to U.S.

The Power of the Israel Lobby Is Unrivaled

Zionists openly brag about the power of the Israel Lobby, but others who mention the lobby’s power are branded as anti-Semites.  We are supposed to accept the lobby’s power but never complain about it.

This documentary prepared for broadcast by Al Jazeera — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcnSDsUkEVw&eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=c9da6fa6-ce81-4102-a54b-2216a90ba156  — shows the extraordinary power of the Israel Lobby in two ways.  

One is that it consists of recordings by a Jewish journalist who infiltrated Zionist organizations and captured the self-satisfied bragging of Israeli and American Zionist agents about how they destroy critics of Israel and defenders of Palestinians and exercise Jewish power over the US Congress, US media, and US universities.  There is no doubt that the Zionist Lobby is extremely powerful.  Former US Representative Jim Moran describes how the Israel Lobby ended his 24-year career in Congress, not for criticizing Israel but just for opposing one of Washington’s wars that Israel regarded as beneficial to Israel.

The other is that the Israel Lobby succeeded in preventing the broadcast of the documentary prepared for the Arab news agency. 

Eventually the documentary was leaked to the Internet and can be watched at the URL above. For a one hour abridgement of the 4 hour film, see:

Once the Israel Lobby succeeds in its global campaign to criminalize all criticism of Israel, the videos will disappear off of the Internet.  http://www.unz.com/audio/gunsbutter_the-global-campaign-to-criminalize-criticism-of-israel-402/

More Power to You Miss Omar

Eric S. MARGOLIS

“Tell me who you cannot criticize and I will tell you who is your master”. (Attributed to Voltaire).

Saying anything negative about Israel has long been the third rail of US politics and media. Israel is our nation’s most sacred cow. Any questioning of its behavior brings furious charges of anti-Semitism and professional oblivion.

I keep in my bookcase a cautionary book, ‘They Dared Speak Out’ written by US senators and congressmen who all lost their positions after rebuking Israel for its mistreatment of Palestinians or daring to suggest that Israel had far too much influence in the US.

Journalists learn this first commandment very early. Criticize, or even question, Israel at your own peril. Until recently, we journalists were not even allowed to write there was an ‘Israel lobby.’ It was widely considered Washington’s most powerful lobby group but, until lately, mentioning its name was seriously verboten.

Now, young Democratic stars Tulsi Gabbard, Kamala Harris, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a feisty congresswoman from Minnesota, Ilhan Omar, have suddenly broken the taboo and said what dared not be said: there is too much rightwing Israeli influence and there must be justice for Palestine.

Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have come to the defense of Ilhan Omar against the usual charges that she is anti-Semitic. So have black groups and smaller liberal Jewish groups. The Democratic Party, that once received half its financial support from Jewish sources, is badly split over the Palestine crisis. Its old guard is retreating and does not know what to do beyond issuing fiery denunciations of the heretical Miss Omar. The Democrat Party split comes just at a time when it is trying to bring down President Donald Trump.

Many people seem unaware that Islam is now America’s third largest religion and may soon surpass the number of Jews. In Canada, Muslims are already the second religion.

Ilhan is not anti-Semitic. I grew up in New York and New England where vicious anti-Semitism abounded. I know real anti-Semitism when I see it. But she is quite right in charging that vast amounts of pro-Israel money have bought Congress and the media.

The Power of the Documentary: Breaking the Silence – Global Research

the-power-of-the-documentary-breaking-the-silence-8211-global-research

29-11-18 05:11:00,

The Power of the Documentary is an unusual film festival, because its aim is to break a silence that extends across much of film-making, the arts and journalism.

By silence I mean the exclusion of ideas that might change the way we see our world, or help us make sense of it.

There are 26 films in this festival and each one pushes back a screen of propaganda – not just the propaganda of governments but of a powerful groupthink of special interests designed to distract and intimidate us and which often takes its cue from social media and is the enemy of the arts and political freedom.

Documentary films that challenge this are an endangered species. Many of the films in the festival are rare. Several have never been seen in this country. Why?

There’s no official censorship in Australia, but there is a fear of ideas. Ideas of real politics. Ideas of dissent. Ideas of satire. Ideas that go against the groupthink. Ideas that reject the demands of corporatism. Ideas that reach back to the riches of Australia’s hidden history.

It’s as if our political memory has been hi-jacked, and we’ve become so immersed in a self-regarding me-ism that we’ve forgotten how to act together and challenge rapacious power that is now rampant in our own country and across the world.

The term “documentary” was coined by the Scottish director John Grierson.

“The drama of film,” he said, “is on your doorstep. It is wherever there is exploitation and cruelty.”

I like those words: “on your doorstep”.

What they say is that it’s the blood, sweat and tears of ordinary people that has given us the documentary film at best. That’s the difference.

A documentary is not reality TV. Political documentary is not the consensual game played by politicians and journalists called “current affairs”.

Great documentaries frighten the powerful, unnerve the compliant, expose the hypocritical.

Great documentaries make us think, and think again, and speak out, and even take action.

Tomorrow at the MCA, we’ll show a documentary called Harvest of Shame directed by Susan Steinberg and Fred Friendly and featuring the great American journalist Edward R.

The Power of Western Propaganda | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

The Power of Western Propaganda | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

24-02-18 01:56:00,

Guardian columnist and leader writer Natalie Nougayrede wrote an op-ed last month examining propaganda in our supposed age of “lies and distortion.”

Focusing on “Russian propaganda” and “Russian meddling” in the West’s political systems, Nougayrede argued

“citizens who live in an authoritarian, disinformation-filled environment deal daily with the reality of propaganda in ways we can’t fully experience, because we live outside of it.”

The former executive editor of Le Monde newspaper in France couldn’t be clearer. Propaganda is what “they” — Russia and other official enemies — do, not something the West dirties its hands with.

In actual fact, as academics David Miller and William Dinan argue in their 2007 book A Century of Spin, sophisticated propaganda has played a central role in Western societies, particularly the United States, since the early 20th century. US dissident Noam Chomsky calls this “thought control in a democratic society.”

As the “father of public relations” Edward Bernays explained in his 1928 PR manual,

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organised habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society … it is the intelligent minorities which need to make use of propaganda continuously and systematically.”

This echoes the thoughts of another influential intellectual of the period, Walter Lippmann, who believed the elite needed to be protected from the “bewildered herd” — the general public. How? By “the manufacture of consent.”

Indeed the term “public relations” is itself a brilliant bit of spin, with Bernays noting:

“Propaganda got to be a bad word because of the Germans … using it [in 1914-18]. So what I did was to try to find some other words. So we found the words Council of Public Relations.”

As the quotes from Bernays and Lippmann highlight, Dinan and Miller say:

“Public relations was created to thwart and subvert democratic decision making” — to “take the risk of out of democracy,” to paraphrase the title of the seminal 1995 book written by Australian academic Alex Carey.

With the US and UK at the heart of the global advertising and marketing industries and corporations funding think tanks and huge lobbying efforts, today the general public faces hundreds of thousands of talented professionals spending billions trying to influence their thoughts and actions.

The Power of the Spoken Word | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

The Power of the Spoken Word | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

25-12-17 11:18:00,

By Jeff Street

Most people know that imagination and visualization are potent tools for powerful manifestation.  But many are less familiar with the power of the spoken word and how their voice contributes to the creation of their reality.  When you voice your thoughts, intentions, and desires, especially if you do so passionately, you add substantial energy to them and thereby dramatically increase the chances that they will manifest.

It might not be much of an exaggeration to say that your words are like orders placed with the universe, especially if you repeat the same words frequently and consistently and don’t contradict them with conflicting thoughts, words, and deeds.  Which by the way, is what most people are doing most of the time — having highly contradictory thoughts, words, and actions.  That’s why most people can’t tell they are creating their reality — it’s all canceling out, and the net effect is ambiguous and very little of their true desires ever manifest.

This point is eloquently hammered home by the renowned Law of Attraction teacher Abraham (as channeled by Esther Hicks) when he said — When you no longer split your flow of energy with contradictory thoughts, you will know your power.

Before we dive into the power of the spoken word and how to apply it deliberately and effectively I wanted to give you a little bit of the back-story of how I discovered my creatorship and the power of the spoken word.

Discovering My Creatorship

In the time since my “awakening” in the spring of 2014, the correlation between my thoughts, intentions, and desires and what shows up in my life has been blatantly obvious.  One of the strange things that started happening during the early stages of my awakening, before I figured out what the heck was going on, was an amazing amount of synchronicities (very convenient “coincidences”) and lots of “good luck.”

My rational mind found it very strange because It didn’t seem like it should be possible to be that lucky.  It seemed like some kind of magic was going on or I was graced by the universe.
