So last night (04/06/2017) Corporate “Fake News” announces that Trump has launched 60 Tomahawk missiles into Syria, supposedly because Assad used nerve gas to kill 60-100 Syrian Children.

===== Retaliation: U.S. Launches 60 Tomahawk Missiles Against Syrian Airfield, Possible Source Of Chemical Weapons Attack https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2017/04/06/retaliation-u-s-launches-tomahawk-missiles-against-syrian-airfields-n2310119 =====

And this morning the Corporate “Fake News” doubled down on the big lie.

Let us not forget that we’ve seen this same tactic — killing children and blaming it on Assad — back in 2013:

===== U.S. ‘backed plan to launch chemical weapon attack on Syria and blame it on Assad’s regime’ http://web.archive.org/web/20130129213824/http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2270219/U-S-planned-launch-chemical-weapon-attack-Syria-blame-Assad.html =====

Next consider these reports that have been hidden by the Corporate “Fake News:”

===== Ron Paul: Chemical Weapons Attack in Syria Likely a False Flag “Zero chance” Assad behind attack, says former Congressman https://www.infowars.com/ron-paul-chemical-weapons-attack-in-syria-likely-a-false-flag/ =====

===== The great investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, in two previous articles in the London Review of Books («Whose Sarin?» and «The Red Line and the Rat Line») has reported that the Obama Administration falsely blamed the government of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad for the sarin gas attack that Obama was trying to use as an excuse to invade Syria; and Hersh pointed to a report from British intelligence saying that the sarin that was used didn’t come from Assad’s stockpiles.

Hersh also said that a secret agreement in 2012 was reached between the Obama Administration and the leaders of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, to set up a sarin gas attack and blame it on Assad so that the US could invade and overthrow Assad. «By the terms of the agreement, funding came from Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia and Qatar; the CIA, with the support of MI6, was responsible for getting arms from Gaddafi’s arsenals into Syria».

WE THE PEOPLE need to stop being treated like mushrooms: kept in the dark and fed a steady diet of bullshit. Like right now.

Let us review what we already know:

(1) There has been no investigation to confirm that Assad used chemical weapons and in the past it has turned out the ISIS or other Muslim nutbags were responsible for past attacks.

(2) Throughout Trumps campaign he stated that it was up to the Syrian people to decide if Assad should remain. This represent a complete reversal of his thinking.

(3) Assad was making great progress against ISIS and therefore had no reason to use chemical weapons.

(4) Given the presence of Russia this could easily escalate into a wider war: perhaps even WWIII.

(5) Should Assad be deposed it is almost certain that Islamic Terrorists will fill the vacuum.

Why has he reversed himself like this. And let us not forget that our incursion into Iraq (2003) came with a 6 Trillion dollar price tag. Do we really want to repeat the same mistake again in Syria when there are much better, cheaper ways to resolve this?

I am beginning to wonder if Trump is not being blackmailed by the Deep State. Perhaps this is proof that meaningful changes to the presidency will not occur until we have Viet Nam style protests against this insane move by our President.

I did make the binary choice to elect Trump as a “lesser of two evils.” And for a short while I even thought he could become a Philosopher King like George Washington. But then I woke up.

He has done little to nothing to stop the flow of largely Muslim Syrian Refugees from coming into the country since his inauguration. He could have cut off funding in lieu of instituting a travel ban. He did not. He could have put pressure on Saudi Arabia: the primary financier of the most weaponized form of Islam: Wahhabism as promoted by the Muslim Brotherhood. He did not.

Good for him in that he named the real enemy: Islamic Terrorism. But he has yet to do anything to back that up. I’m sensing another “bait and switch.”

First off let us review how we got involved in Syria in the first place. Please take a moment to read through this summary before continuing. It is very concise yet discusses the main milestones leading to this humanitarian disaster.

===== A brief history of the War in Syria and rise of ISIS http://www.cheriberens.net/the-syrian-airstrike-targeted-an-al-qaeda-weapons-warehouse-which-was-being-used-as-a-workshop-for-the-production-of-land-mines-stuffed-with-poisonous-substances-it-was-not-an-airstrike-on-civilians.html =====

Next consider that US policy, during the Obama administration, was to support ISIS. Why would they do that you ask? Good question.

===== The government watchdog group “Judicial Watch” published formerly classified documents obtained from the U.S. Department of Defense and the State Department. One such document written by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) dated August 12,2012 states that an “Islamic State” is desirable in Eastern Syria to implement the West’s policies. The document stated that for “the West, Gulf countries, and Turkey, [who] support the [Syrian] opposition … there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist [Wahhabi] principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime.

Intel Document: West will facilitate the rise of an Islamic State (ISIS) in order to isolate the Syrian Government http://www.cheriberens.net/2012-intel-document-west-will-facilitate-rise-of-islamic-state-in-order-to-isolate-the-syrian-government.html =====

Here is the actual document for those that might have a problem accepting this sick demonic reality:

===== http://www.judicialwatch.org/document-archive/pgs-287-293-291-jw-v-dod-and-state-14-812-2/ =====

Yes it is very difficult to believe our government would do such a thing. On the other hand I have always thought the greatest mistake of humanity has been to underestimate the evil of our rulers. And sadly we ignore this reality until it is far too late: until a war is declared or you find yourself whisked off to a death camp as the Jews were whisked off during WWII.

Now consider this poor guy, in Iran, that is facing death because he insulted Islam:

===== Sentenced to Death for “Insulting Islam” https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/10170/iran-insulting-islam =====

Now consider how I would handle this situation if I were president:

===== “There is no more important right than the freedom to speak and think freely. Galileo understood this truth when he tried to explain to the Vatican that the Earth went around the Sun. And while the right to free speech emerged from the Enlightenment it was not put into any national charter until the ratification of the “US Constitution.” For all of our flaws, the acknowledgement of inalienable rights is really what made us the envy of free men and women throughout this planet. For that alone I remain proud to call myself an American.

There is only one Abrahamic Religion (e.g., Christianity, Judaism, Islam) that has not yet acknowledged the questioning of ideas: and that would be Islam. Today we will begin the process of bringing all 43 OIC nations (e.g., Muslim Theocracies) through the Enlightenment and into the 21st Century. For far too long we have ignored the problem of Islamic Theocracies, Islamic coercion and the institutional violence they have perpetrated on both Muslims and Non-Muslims alike.

And this is how we are about to solve this problem with Islam.

Thankfully Mosques are as common to Muslim nations as Starbucks are to the United States. You seem to be able to see them popping up all over the place. And too often we are finding that these Mosques — even those in the US — are proselytizing a virulent form of Islamic Supremacy: the idea that Muslims are superior to Non-Muslims. This has no place in the 21st century: nor does it have a place among free people. As Joni Mitchel put it so eloquently: we are all from stardust.

For many hundreds of years Muslim theocracies — from the Shiites of Iran to the Sunni’s of Saudi Arabia — have been persecuting those that question Islam, are gay, are Christian, are users of entheogens or other “mind expanding” drugs. As recently as 2016 Saudi Arabia has beheaded Apostates and even Witches. That shit ends today.

Today I have issued an executive order to protect the liberties of free men and women throughout our planet. So from this day forward every violation of personal liberties, by the institutions of Muslim theocracies, will be punished by the utter destruction of one of their Mosques (in their country) and the closing of one Mosque in our country. We will give the Imams a 5 hour warning prior to destroying their Mosque. Our intent is not to take human lives.

It is my hope that this mere warning will lead to the destruction of all Muslim theocracies throughout our planet. To be clear it does not prevent you from remaining a Muslim. But it is intended to make the theocratic tenants of your religion as irrelevant as a dead ghost on a bright sunny day. And should you not heed this warning we will simply determine additional targets after all of your mosques are turned to dust. Please heed this warning so that no Mosques need be destroyed. All humans have a right to think freely and to be free from the coercion of both religious and secular ideologies. I am issuing this executive order to make clear to the world that we have not forgotten our role in protecting personal liberties, both here and abroad.

In addition to this I will be establishing a committee to determine how we can move toward a sustainable future by encouraging a reduction in population growth as to reduce the very reason that nations go to war in the first place: the competition for energy and other resources. We are freethinking humans that remain at the top of the food chain. We do not need to act like mindless bacteria in a petri dish: mindlessly procreating till be die in our own toxic waste. =====

So that is how I would put Islam in its place. But that is only part of the problem. Perhaps the bigger part of the problem is that the Global Elite has been exploiting Islam to create its own from of Caliphate: what they like to call the “New World Order.” The links that I have already provided should have made that clear. But in 2015 it finally occurred to me why these Global Elites (Banks, Corporations, Educational Institutions, Soros, Non Government Organizations etc.) have been so cozy to Islam over the past few decades. They want to use Islam as a means to establish their own Global order before the advent of cheap energy takes away most of their power.

If you would read my essay I will explain why the emergence of cheap energy is both the crux of the problem and the crux of the solution. Here is a brief quote from the essay, in hopes you will read the entire essay:

===== “Today we are at a cross roads. The Global Elite (banks and corporations) are “shitting a brick” because the access to cheap energy is upon us. Germany, which has less sunlight than most US states, has now used solar energy to replace 30% of their energy needs. Tesla has just recently developed a “home battery” that will save the access energy without dependence on local Energy Utilities. They are “shitting a brick” because the control of energy has been the primary means by which the global banks/corporations can control us.”

US-NATO’s “Counter-Christmas Crusade” against the Cradle of Civilization and the Holy Land

By Felicity Arbuthnot

Global Research, December 17, 2015

 

 

“It’s really 19th century behavior in the 21st century. You just don’t invade another country on phony pretexts in order to assert your interests.” -John Kerry, “Meet the Press”, 2nd March 2014.

There has been a searing irony to Christmas since August 1990 and the decimating embargo on Iraq. It marked the beginning of the destruction of the region where the three Abrahamic religions were born at Ur in southern Iraq, where the Garden of Eden is believed to have flourished at Al-Qurnah, translation “connection” or “joint”, since it is where the Biblical Tigris and Euphrates rivers join.

In Al-Qurnah an ancient jujube tree – a fruit species (image right), cultivation of which is believed to go back to 900 BCE – was celebrated as the actual Biblical Tree of Knowledge.

Nearby is Babylon, found in the Books of Genesis, Peter and Revelations.

Neighbouring Syria, is also part of the “Cradle of Civilization”, integral to Biblical narrative.

Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount (Mount Hermon) which according to the Book of Matthew included:

“Syria, you are the cradle of the prophets and apostles and the center that spreads the gospel from Antioch in Syria to the world, and paved the way of the Forefathers of the Church to continue.”

St Paul of course converted on the road to Damascus – where he was actually headed to persecute Christians not to become one of them.

Geographically next door to Syria is what remains of Israeli occupied Palestine, Christ’s birthplace in Bethlehem, where, at what is now the Church of the Nativity (image left), He was believed born.

Above are just a few of the jewels of a region now decimated by that created by George W. Bush’s and Tony Blair’s “Crusade,” not to mention Obama and Cameron’s “humanitarian bombings” of the Land of two Rivers.

Ur was vandalized by the US army, who arrived with Bibles in vast stocks, missionaries and plans for proselytizing those who had nurtured and stewarded the region’s wonders of all religions for centuries.

Al-Qurna was stormed and devastatingly damaged by British, Lithuanian and Danish troops, the Tree of Knowledge whose legend and life seemingly spanned the mists of time, died, near certainly from the poisonous pollution of battle, more poisonous even than that which destroyed over half all fauna and flora after the Desert Storm 1991 onslaught, leaving the soil dead and infertile for years afterwards.

Syria’s tragedy in the ongoing Crusade, determination to redraw the map of the Middle East and steal all natural resources rather than purchase them, is outside the scope of this article.

However, Mount Hermon is now part of the buffer zone between Syria and Israeli occupied territory and the highest permanently manned United Nations position on earth. “Jesus wept” comes to mind.

As for Bethlehem’s “Little Town” so central during the Christmas period, it is prisoner to a wall eight meters high, which:

“snakes through and around Bethlehem, disrupting social, religious, cultural and economic life.” (1)

The brilliant political artist Banksy’s Christmas card show’s Joseph, with Mary on a donkey, on their way to Bethlehem for Christ’s birth – only to be blocked by the wall. (image below)

At Al Quds University last week, the most poignant of Christmas trees was unveiled to “Absent Friends”, attended by the Mufti of Bethlehem, Sheikh Abdul Majid Amarna, University’s President, Imad Abu Kishk and Greek Orthodox Archbishop Atallah Hanna. The tree was decorated with photographs of those killed by Israeli settlers and Israeli security forces (demonstrating) unity between Christian and Muslim students. It received predictable criticism from Israeli media. (2)

The tree is a microcosm of the unity to be found across the region and the world between all faiths and none. So where did this rabid Islamophobia, as demonstrated in swathes of mainstream Western media and by politicians suddenly come from?

It came primarily from a forty-two million dollar fund from seven foundations (3) read and all will become crystal clear. Some excellent links also to be found at (4) and the CIA’s input (5.)

However, it was the Orthodox Church of the Holy Land which first spotted the dangers of a creeping hate campaign, responding on 31st March 2003, as the bombs fell on Iraq, by excommunicating Tony Blair, his then Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, George W. Bush and his Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, from the Church of the Nativity, for life. (6)

Blair, Straw and Bush all declare passionate Christian faith, with Bush and Blair stating they “prayed together” prior to illegally decimating Abraham’s birth country.

“A spokesman of the Orthodox Church in the Holy Land, Archimandrite Attallah Hanna declared that U.S. President George Bush, his Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Tony Blair and Foreign Secretary Jack Straw have all been banned from visiting the traditional birth place of Christ in Bethlehem.”

Hanna described both Bush and Blair as “excommunicates.” (7)

David Cameron has also expressed an “evangelical passion” for Christianity as he plots to further destroy Syria. With any luck he’ll be the next to be banned.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon recently said: “The world is over-armed and peace is under funded.”
