|Freedom of speech is dying an excruciating death. Watching it die is difficult enough, but knowing that, somehow, by my silence, I am complicit in the death, is unbearable. One thing is certain. I cannot stand by and do nothing. I cannot stand by and watch our freedoms die. I cannot stand by in tacit silence, while what's left of our freedom wriggles and squirms and gasps for air. There has got to be a mass resuscitation. There has got to be a way to breathe life back into our Bill of Rights. We are careening down a slippery slope into a disaster, the magnitude of which nobody has ever witnessed. You know I am right, don't you? You can feel it too, can't you?
How is this happening and when did it first begin? When did the first amendment wind up under the boot of fascism? When did "politically correct" become synonymous with censorship? When did the label "hate crime" become our new censoring device? When did "critic" become synonymous with "terrorist?" When did the ruling elite remove the word "free" from "free speech?"
All my life I have heard people question, "Why did people "follow orders" in Nazi Germany?" Look in the mirror folks. Maybe that's where the answer lies.
"Either you're with us, or you are with the terrorists." George Bush struggles to string his words into a coherent sentence. But is it coherent? Since when are questions and criticism verboten? Since when is honest dialogue and discussion a crime?
Yesterday I watched a short Internet video about Ernst Zundel. http://www.currentissues.tv/ The host of the show was Dr. Hesham Tillawi and his guests were Paul Fromm and Ingrid Rimland. Mr. Fromm is with the Canadian Association for Free Expression. His organization reportedly goes to bat for people accused of "thought crimes". Ingrid Rimland is Ernst Zundel's wife and an accomplished writer of more than 6 books. She lives in Tennessee and owns, edits and controls The Zundelsite.
Perhaps I should begin with a bit of background for those of you who are not familiar with Ernst Zundel. But before I begin, let me admit that no matter how much I have read, I still have difficulty making sense of Mr. Zundel's tragic story. I am still not certain why he has been languishing in prison for the past few years.
Paul Fromm explained that from 1996 - 2001, the Canadian Government was trying to get control of Internet websites in other countries with the intention of shutting down certain of the sites. Mr. Zundel, a legal resident of Canada, who was, at that point, living in the U.S., was said to be associated with one such site. The Zundelsite was run by his wife, Ingrid. The Canadian Government stated that the nature of its contents were likely to expose Jews to hate and contempt. And yet, Ernst Zundel's site was outside Canadian jurisdiction.
In February of 2003, INS agents and local sheriff deputies raided the Zundel home in Tennessee. They told Ernst that he had missed a hearing with immigration. The Zundels were taken aback. They had been awaiting notification of this hearing.
There was nothing the Zundels could say or do. And on that fateful night in 2003, handcuffs were slapped on Ernst Zundel and he was deported to Canada. (his last country of legal residence) He was imprisoned in Canada from February 16, 2003 until March 2, 2005. They called him "a threat to national security."
Since September 11, 2001, Governments have changed their definition of "dissent." They are now calling it "terrorism." Ernst Zundel was anything but a terrorist. In fact, he was a pacifist who urged his supporters NOT to engage in terrorism. In the 40 years he'd lived in Canada, he had fathered two children and had never committed a crime. But all that seemed irrelevant to the authorities.
Mr. Fromm told Dr. Tillawi that the Canadian Government was under tremendous pressure from groups such as the Canadian Jewish Congress and the League For Human Rights Of B'nai Brith to deport Zundel.
Canada then shipped Ernst to Germany which had a warrant out for his arrest. Germany was claiming that Zundel had used the Internet to violate Section 190 of the German Criminal Code which stated that it is an offense to "dishonor the memory of the dead."
Most of the German charges had to do with postings on the Zundelsite, which was in Tennessee and owned by his wife Ingrid, a U.S. citizen. And, to complicate matters further, the United States did not have any similar laws.
This November, Ernst Zundel is scheduled to go to trial and, if committed, he could face additional prison time of 5 years. In addition, he has been banned from America for 20 years because he allegedly missed an interview with immigration; an interview of which he'd not received notification.
Ingrid Rimland explained that she cannot go to Germany to visit her husband because there is a warrant out for her arrest. The warrant is because of her website in America. This is a site that has been on the Internet for 10 years.
Ernst Zundel is 66 years old and has been treated poorly in prison. In Canada he starved and froze. His health is suffering. He has been labeled a Holocaust Denier and a White Supremacist, two terms that have helped to stir up anti-Zundel sentiment. However, according to Mr. Fromm, neither label is true. Ernst does not deny the Holocaust; he is merely questioning some of the details.
Not long ago, I heard a discussion about Ernst Zundel, on National Public Radio. The members of the panel, were, in part, Jewish. They were quite blunt about their disdain for Mr. Zundel, and yet they said that he was entitled to express his views. "Nobody is asking anyone to agree with what he is saying; it is his right to speak that is the issue"
In our culture it is totally admissible to question a variety of things. There are many people who publicly question the existence of God. There are people who write volumes insisting that Jesus Christ never existed. There are books that claim that religion is mind control and that the Bible was written by some men in order to control other man. And yet, these people are not behind bars, and well they shouldn't be. These people have been awarded the right to question history and religion. What's different about Ernst Zundel's case?
Why shouldn't historical facts be open to public scrutiny and debate? Why isn't there a place for rational discourse? Why are unpopular views being labeled as "terrorism?" After all, if something is true, it will stand up under the light of careful scrutiny, won't it?
Dr. Norman Finkelstein is a Jewish author of some very controversial books. In his book, "The Holocaust Industry, " Dr. Finkelstein states that many powerful Zionist groups have used the Holocaust to amass vast sums of money. He states that the Holocaust has been used for fund raising for the survivors of the Hitler's detention camps. And, he continues, the survivors never received any of the funds. Hundreds of billions of dollars have been raised for Jewish causes because of the Holocaust. Over 700 billion has come from the United States.
There is something terribly wrong with this whole tragic story. And yet, I wonder, is this only the beginning?
On the 20th of August, a chilling article appeared in The Ottawa Citizen, a Canadian newspaper. A Jewish group had filed a complaint to the University of Ottawa against economics Professor Michel Chossudovsky, who was referred to as a "controversial left-leaning economist." Chossudovsky was accused of hosting an "anti-Semitic website."
The article talked about a forum that Mr. Chossudovsky moderated. It was a forum on which the Holocaust was discussed. On this forum 9/11 and possible Israeli involvement was discussed. None of the postings were written by Michel Chossudovsky and yet, under Canadian law, website owners can be liable for material they knowingly post, even if they have not produced it themselves.
"I know this isn't his own writing, but he's certainly got a responsibility for the website, which, I checked, is registered in his name," said Anita Bromberg, B'nai Brith's legal counsel and human rights co-ordinator."
What will happen? I don't know. The muzzling of questions and concerns is spreading like a cancer.
The world is filled with problems which appear to be insurmountable. I don't know how to solve these problems, but one thing I do know. It is imperative that we examine all the possibilities. The solution will never come through fear and intimidation. The solution will never come through shutting people up, scaring them, threatening them and imprisoning them because they merely dared to question. We should all be questioning.
In Search Of Harry (August 10, 2005)
Four days ago, I picked up a book that, from its cover, appeared to be a travel manual about Canada. I have no idea from whence it came, other then from Canada.
The book contains very little about the author. It was written in 2004. The cover is confusing and there is no title page. The one thing that I can say for certain, however, is that the subject matter is riveting. And though I cannot verify much of what the author is saying, I have hardly put that book down since it landed in my lap four days ago.
Because of the controversial nature of this book, I suspect that the author is using a pseudonym. My googling attempt revealed nothing. And so, let's refer to him as Harry. OK?
Simply stated, Harry's book talks about crimes against humanity. Harry's book talks about the New World Order. Harry's book talks about how we are being attacked, decimated and herded toward a UN global slavery system.
Let's look for a moment at the NWO. At the top of this group, Harry tells us, are the Global Bankers. Don't look for them as they are barely visible. However, the results of their strategy are visible all over our planet.
The NWO launches their attacks on a target nation using the following three-part strategy:
1. Force is used to attack a nation and smash its peoples. Soldiers.
2. Religion is imposed to induce insanity and herd people into a sheep like state. Priests.
3. The Legislation of the conqueror is brought in on the shirttails of God. Lawyers.
"The easiest way to bring force against a nation is to play global politics," Harry tells us. "Just set one nation against another and then come in and pick up all the pieces.
The global Bankers first divide the world into nations and then come in and piece it back together as they wish."
My friends are incredulous. They question, "How could people cooperate with such a nefarious agenda?" These innocent souls are underestimating both the brains as well as the lack of conscience of the global elite. You see, friends, the elite are thoroughly aware that a populace that begins to "catch on" to the game plan, needs to be culled.
Harry tells us that one effective way of culling the herd is through vaccines. In this fashion, poisons are put directly into the human body while the elite reap incredible profits. Another effective tool has been the drugging of our children.
"Don't forget your meds, Johnny." After all, we wouldn't want our children squirming in school, now would we?
Are you aware that pharmaceuticals kill four times as many people in North America as illicit narcotics do? Many researchers have made impressive cases for the fact that SIDS, autism and a host of childhood diseases are all caused by vaccines produced by our "benevolent" pharmaceutical manufacturers.
Check the Internet for a plethora of wonderful articles about the drugging of America. And view Joyce Riley's film "Beyond Treason," if you don't believe Harry.
Harry ties the drug trade to the money scams. However, before I proceed, I feel that it is imperative to clarify something. Harry is about to make reference to Jews, and here is where the feathers may begin to ruffle. (or, more accurately, fly) Before you cry anti-Semite to this Jewish born maven or label poor Harry, wherever he is, anti-Semitic, perhaps it is necessary to quote a chapter from his book.
"When I refer to 'Jews' in this document," Harry states, "I mean the people who claim the divine right to rule in the name of the God of the Jews." He explains that he is not referring to the religious people who actually believe the religion and he is not referring to the Jewish people known as "British subjects." Harry continues, "I am talking about the people who are responsible for the Lion of Judah appearing on the top of British Columbia's provincial log and their Jewish Heraldic Arm crest of authority garnishing Canada's courtrooms...I mean the people who trace their lineage to Christ and claim to sit on his throne,"
Harry says, "Whether the people in control of this system are Jewish is debatable. However, those that rule us do claim that they are. Elizabeth claims to sit on Christ's thrown because she is related to him by blood. Christ was a descendant of Judah, which is why he was called a Jew. Though the Head of the British Crown of Israel Anglican Church may well be a Christian by religious faith, she is obviously of Jewish ancestral lineage. The term Jew in the Bible refers to someone from the House of Judah, not to someone of the Jewish religion. The religious terms 'Jewish' and 'Christian' were not used at the time of Christ," Harry goes on.
"The world owes a combined debt of nearly fifty-trillion dollars. Of course, no one had fifty-trillion dollars to lend: it was all created out of thin air. If one follows the gold (debt) to its final destination one finds the Bank that controls all the Central Banks of the Jewish Common Wealth Nations of Israel; The Bank of International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland. The Bank of International Settlements has an asset base of one hundred and seventy-five trillion dollars.
Basel, by the way, is also the home of the world's largest pharmaceutical manufacturers. Switzerland is the world's only "neutral nation." And yet, every home is required by law to be armed and all male citizens are compelled to serve in the army. Interestingly, Europe has erupted into violence with two world wars that have left Switzerland virtually untouched.
Switzerland is the ancestral home of the European Jewish Royal Families. The center of the Habsburg dynasty is the Falcon's Nest. All the Royal Families of Europe are descended from the line of Judah. They claim to sit on Christ's Throne."
Don't take my word for this. I am merely quoting Harry.
Harry states that the British Crown of Israel created the British State of Israel? He also tells us it was the British Crown of Israel who created the Mossad.
"It has been claimed that Interpol also paved the way for the Nazi 'war criminals' to escape," Harry continues. "How many of these were really British operatives? Did you know that the motto of the Jewish Mossad is 'by deception thou shall wage war' and that the motto of the Queen's private intelligence agency that created the Mossad and all other intelligence agencies is 'always hidden?' "
Thank you, Harry, but this may not be news to many of the Internet readers. However, to those who are stumbling on these statements for the first time, I urge you to keep an open mind. The worst thing that can happen is that Harry could be wrong. But, what if he's right?
Personally, I, Judy, believe that the heads of many groups have united in this plot. It is combinations and recombinant strains of evil that have united at the top.
Pointing the finger at one group is missing the target and playing into the hands of the NWO. The leaders of the power pyramid stay in darkness, happily watching while others take the fall.
Harry's book slaughters many of our most sacred cows. Take religion for example. (please) We have all heard "More wars have been fought and more blood has been shed in the name of religion than any other cause, perhaps all other causes." We have all heard it because it is true.
Harry tells us that religion is the key to inducing critical mass insanity. "So complete is the subjugation of a God oriented human that the herd member will actually sit still while it is slaughtered by those that maniacally chortle while they sacrifice him on the alter of their deceit."
"Churches are a key link in teaching the young that they are not the sovereign authority in their own lives. Their livelihood depends on this deception, as indeed does their entire criminal conspiracy. Some of the most immoral and unethical attacks on target nations are directed by those that hide under the skirts of the church."
Ponder this. 100 million Africans have been killed in 400 years of the African slave trade under the sanction of the Vatican. And don't ignore the current Muslim-bashing by the likes (and dislikes) of Bill Bennett. Keep in mind Dubya's use of the word "Crusade." (nice going, George) And finally, take notice of how Jerry Falwell has altered the meaning of "thou shalt not kill" to mean God winks when you bomb Muslim wedding parties and kill everybody.
But forgive me. I have digressed, as a woman with a grievance will often do.
"Fear is an illusion of the mind, " Harry tells us. "Mind controlling a herd is much easier than physically restraining it. If you can control the herd and still maintain a high level of motivation by having them believe they are free at the same time as they are cowering, this is much more financially desirable." The New World Order knows this all too well. Legislation is slavery. The United Nations is all about establishing a private legal system franchise globally. "Once the system has fully (d)evolved to global judicial rule, global slavery is complete. Force (Military), Religion (Bishop), Legislation (Legal); United Nations (Beast) END GAME ! "
Harry quotes Robert McNamara's words to a group of international bankers on Oct 2, 1979. The words are as telling as they are chilling:
"We can begin with the most critical problem of all, population growth...short of a nuclear war itself, it is the greatest issue the world faces over the decades ahead......Either the current birth rates must come down more quickly, or the current death rates must go up." Guess which choice was made?
"Genetically modified foods, fertilizers and weed killers introduce a plethora of health problems," Harry informs. In the words of pResident Bush, " Mission accomplished!" "Vaccinating animals with poisons that destroy their immune systems and then feeding them waste by-products from slaughter-houses in huge feed lots poisons our livestock on a grand scale."
Remember that when you go to your local supermarket. Does that rump roast still look as tasty?
And, as I stated earlier, our vaccination program may merit a closer look.
"There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children does more harm than good." Dr. Anthony Morris
"Is the astonishing rise in autism a medical mystery or a pharmaceutical shame?"
"Public policy regarding vaccines is fundamentally flawed. It is permeated by conflicts of interest. It is based on poor scientific methodology...." Jane Orient MD, Executive Director Association of American Physicians and Surgeons Inc. www.whale.to/vaccines/orient.html
Suffice it to say that I have merely scratched the book's surface in this brief essay. I have not tackled such topics as "The Knighting of Sir Henry Kissinger" or the reason why "The Declaration of Independence was a legal but not lawful document." But Harry has.
So what has become of Harry? According to the book, he has been exiled, and happily so. For, as Harry says, "Humanity does not exile except the one whose noble spirit rebels against despotism and oppression. He who does not prefer exile to slavery is not free by any measure of freedom, truth and duty."
Changing The Cartridge (August 6, 2005)
Lately I have been receiving a number of letters from people inquiring as to why I have not written. (They are referring to my essays rather than a personal "hi, how are you?" letter.)
Quite frankly, I am never sure why I do not write, I am too busy figuring out why I do. It's not that I haven't been touched and deeply disturbed by recent events. Believe me when I say that although my mouth has been enjoying a quiet summer vacation, my eyes and ears have been hard at work.
"You haven't said a word about the London bombings," an Internet friend wrote.
This friend was not privy to the email I had written to a relative in London after the bombings occurred. The response had been, "Can't you ever believe that anything is just the terrorists?"
"Well, shut my mouth!" A voice inside my head whispered. And "shut it," I did. However, all the while, I kept my eyes glued to my favorite Internet truth sites and my ears close to my favorite Internet radio shows. Yes, there was a great deal to say about the London bombings and people were saying it very well. I sat in my room applauding one of the kings of courage, Alex Jones, as his voice bellowed into a megaphone in London, spreading truth to the gathered throng and startled passersby.
Aside from circulating videos, I have adopted a "one to one" approach. Every unsuspecting repairman who enters my home, even the acupuncturist working on my lower back, has seen me climb up on my soapbox.
My "one to one" philosophy has brought me many pleasant surprises. The man at the Auto Body Repair shop was knowledgeable about the New World Order and we talked for quite sometime. No, I did not get a discount on my bill: there was no method in my madness.
The car salesman who sold my son his car was also an agreeable and informed audience.
The man repairing my bathroom, on the other hand, terminated the conversation with a simple sentence, "I like Bush." I tried to spin a Bohemian Grove story in an effort to trim the presidential shrub, but this man was not buying. And since I did not want to find any surprise leaks in the plumbing, I wisely decided to plug up my mouth.
Last week my aching back urged me to take a trip to an acupuncturist. As she needled me, we easily slipped into a conversation about medicine and health. She remarked that all medicine is toxic and affects the liver.
"The doctors are taught poorly," she continued.
I heard the knock of opportunity. It was a quick trip from the "holes in the medical education" to the faux terrorist attacks in London, and an easy connecting flight to the official lies about the WTC collapses.
Our conversation was as painless as the treatment and I left the office feeling unusually optimistic.
It has been a brutally hot summer and everyone is New York is complaining about the heat and anxiously anticipating the time when they can begin complaining about the cold. And so, on a sticky August morning, I turned on the local radio station to see how much longer I would have to wait until I started breathing again.
It was not yet time for "traffic and weather" and a lively discussion about the wisdom of searching people on the subway was underway.
"Anything that stops a terror attack is a good idea," was the general consensus.
"Better check that elderly lady's purse," I thought. There may be a bomb in her pillbox.
My dialing fingers took a more aggressive approach.
"Our next caller, Judy from Suffern"
I broke into a tirade about the London attacks, the drills that were going on simultaneously, the bombs exploding from the floors of the buses, the surveillance cameras that did not work, the Mi6 asset who masterminded the whole enchilada, and that was just the beginning. My rant led me to Scott Ritter's comment that we had planned to be in Iran by the beginning of July. I squeezed in PNAC, Operation Northwoods, and even got into the 911 anomalies. I knew that much of my audience thought their radio dial had drifted into an audio presentation of Mel Gibson's movie "Conspiracy Theory." My mouth had reached the speed limit and my mind was racing for I knew I was competing with the arrival of the 8 a.m. (ahem) news.
After the traffic and weather, the phones at the station began to ring off their proverbial hooks.
"Where does this woman get her information?"
"Why haven't we read about it in the paper? The papers print everything"
I searched for my blood pressure cuff.
In the midst of my foray into the mouth of madness, the voice of an elderly gentleman caller brought me back to planet earth.
"That woman was 100% right. I hope she will call the station and leave her phone number. I would like to buy her lunch"
John is a man in his 80's who fought in the Second World War. His credentials as a Vet gives him credibility among the station's listeners. After picking up my remains, he continued where I had left off. He talked about how our country had been tricked into the wars. He talked about Pearl Harbor. He talked about a great deal more as I basked in the validation of my sanity.
I was able to make a phone connection with John.
"I want to buy you a big Italian meal." He expressed his gratitude for my courage.
John hails from that imaginary place we have come to know as "the right wing" whereas I am a "recovering leftie." And yet, in these troubled times, the present is all that matters. Our minds meet in a common arena. We are two human beings who know that our country is in trouble. We know that we are being manipulated and lied to. The left/right, divide/conquer paradigm has no place at our dining table. It is merely a weakly penciled illusory boundary, sketched into our collective psyche, which is in dire need of a large erasure.
I wish I could say that my lunch with John filled me with hope, but I cannot. That part of me has, I'm afraid, waved good-bye to optimism. There may be an awakening taking place but it is moving too slowly. Time is a luxury which, unlike oil, cannot be replenished. Has it run out? Have we let a cold blooded, calculating cabal pull our strings while we obediently and blindly walked off the cliff of survival?
Forgive my lack of optimism but life is the only reality show in which I have any interest. And therefore, deluding myself is a habit which I have struggled to break. The possibility that we are about to become extinct is moving into the realm of probability.
Are we standing at our deathbed watching as humanity gasps its last breath?
