Puppet State America

The United States government and its subject peoples think of the US as “the world’s only superpower.” But how is a country a superpower when its entire government and a majority of the subjects, especially those members of evangelical churches, grovel at the feet of the Israeli Prime Minister? How is a country a superpower when it lacks the power to determine its own foreign policy in the Middle East? Such a country is not a superpower. It is a puppet state.

In the past few days we have witnessed, yet again, the “American superpower” groveling at Netanyahu’s feet. When Netanyahu decided to again murder the Palestinian women and children of Gaza, to further destroy what remains of the social infrastructure of the Gaza Ghetto, and to declare Israeli war crimes and Israeli crimes against humanity to be merely the exercise of “self-defense,” the US Senate, the US House of Representatives, the White House, and the US media all promptly declared their support for Netanyahu’s crimes.

On November 16 the Congress of the “superpower,” both House and Senate, passed overwhelmingly the resolutions written for them by AIPAC, the Israel Lobby known as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the only foreign agent that is not required to register as a foreign agent. The Global News Service of the Jewish People reported their power over Washington with pride. (http://current.com/19su0kc). Both Democrats and Republicans shared the dishonor of serving Israel and evil instead of America and justice for the Palestinians.

The White House quickly obeyed the summons from the Israel Lobby. President Obama announced that he is “fully supportive” of Israel’s assault on Gaza. Ben Rhodes, White House deputy national security adviser, told the media on November 17 that the White House “wants the same thing as the Israelis want.” This is an overstatement as many Israelis oppose the crimes of the Israeli government, which is not the government of Israel but the government of the “settlers,” that is, the crazed land-hungry immigrants who are illegally, with Netanyahu’s support, stealing the lands of the Palestinians.

Netanyahu’s Israel is the equivalent of the Lincoln Republicans 150 years ago. Then there was no international law to protect Southern states, who left the voluntary union, a right under the Constitution, in order to avoid being exploited by Northern business interests. Subsequently, the Union army, after devastating the South, turned on the American Indians, and there was no international law to protect American Indians from being murdered and dispossessed by Washington’s armies.

Washington claimed that its invasion forces were threatened by the Indian’s bows and arrows. Today there is international law to protect the Palestinian residents of the West Bank and Gaza. However, every time that the world tries to hold the Israeli government accountable for its crimes, Israel’s Washington puppet vetoes the UN decision.

The notion that Israel is threatened by Palestinians is as absurd as the notion that the US is threatened by Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, Somalia, Pakistan, and Iran. No government of any of these countries has ever made a threatening statement against the US. Even had such a statement been made, it would be meaningless. If a Superpower can be threatened by such impotent and distant counties, then it is not a superpower.

Demonizing a victim is a way of hiding state crimes. The American print and TV media is useless as a check on state crimes. The only crimes reported by the media are assigned to “terrorists,” that is, those who resist US hegemony, and to Americans, such as Bradley Manning and Sibel Edmonds, who liberate truth from official secrecy. Julian Assange of WikiLeaks remains in danger despite the asylum granted to him by the President of Ecuador, as Washington has little regard for international law.

In the US the exercise of the First Amendment is coming to be regarded as a crime against the state. The purpose of the media is no longer to find the truth, but to protect official lies. Speaking the truth has essentially disappeared as it is too costly to journalist who dare to do so. To keep one’s job, one serves Washington and the private interest groups that Washington serves.

In his November 19 defense of Israel’s latest war crimes, President Obama said: “no country on earth would tolerate missiles raining down from outside its borders.” But, of course, numerous countries do tolerate missiles raining down from the US. The war criminal Obama is raining down missiles in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen, and has rained missiles on Libya, Somalia, Iraq and Syria as well. Iran might be next.

The German assault on the Warsaw Ghetto is one of the horror stories of Jewish history. Such an event is happening again, only this time Jews are perpetrators instead of victims. No hand has been raised to stay Israel from the goal of the operation declared by Israeli Interior Minister Eli Yishai to be “to send Gaza back to the Middle Ages.” (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/israel-pounds-gaza-from-air-as-troops-assemble-8326924.html)

    The problem, Mr. Roberts is that there are people in the US who believe that leaving Israel out to hang might just incur the Wrath of Almighty God…

    Religious belief, whether or not you choose to accept it, is a hard thing to contend with.

    Tell you what Roberts: Give the world empirical proof as to whether there is Eternal Life and perhaps you can change things.

    Until then, thanks for the nice article and please enjoy this nice warm mug of Shut the Hell Up, courtesy of the Religious Right.

    Yeah, what’s up with Israel? Why can’t they just sit back and let their civilians get blasted by rockets? Sheesh!
    Sarcasm aside, so you think any group that wants to wipe Israel off the map are the victims? I’m glad I don’t get your “reality.”

    WHAT A FN IDIOT the author is, truth is our country jumps to the string pull of the OIC (muslims) controlled U.N. and the OIC is controlled by Saudi Arabia, our sworn enemy!

  • SKIP

    OH! I would also add that there have been no terrorist attacks on the CONUS by muslims since 2001 because the islamic takeover of the U.S. is going so well that the Saudis will not allow it. Let Pamela Geller’s site (www.atlasshrugs.com) gain more support to when it seriously messes up islamic inroads then the SWHTF again. And she IS gaining more and more awake people every day though she pays no attention to black American converts which are becoming more and more dangerous what with their untouchable madrassas in the U.S.

    I once thought that the problem was the Muslims, if not Islam itself. That is what they want you to believe.
    Recently, I had an experience that facilitated a “look behind the veil” so to speak.
    The problem is not the Muslims. The problem is not the Christians. The problem is not the Jews. The problem is the 80% that make up the population of Israel. The ashkanazi jews. Who aren’t even really jewish. They are also known as the Khazars. It does go a little deeper than that.
    In 740 ad the nation of khazaria converted to Judeaism. The Khazars come from Eastern Europe (Russia). They could not covert their genetic code however. Israel was created for the Jewish people, not those that practice Judeaism.
    The most prominent family from the Khazarian or “13th” tribe (there are truly only 12) is a name we are all familiar with. That name is ROTHSCHILD. The Rothschild family has far more power, influence, and actual control over the United States than most people realize or believe.
    Over the centuries the Rothschild family has done an outstanding job of keeping family geneology. Indeed, not just those named Rothschild, but also of the female family members (who took new surnames upon marriage), their children with even more new surnames. As complete of a job as possible. They have family networks world wide.
    The Rothschild family is far more reaching than I would have ever imagined. Their presence is very strong in France, Austria, Germany Switzerland, Sweden, the UK, the USA, and of course Israel.
    Revelations chapter 2 verse 9 “I know of your tribulation and poverty even though you are rich. I know the slander you endure from self styled jews who are nothing more than Satan’s assembly.”
    Chapter 3 verse 9 “I mean to make some of Satans assembly, those self styled Jews who are not really Jews but frauds, come and fall down at your feet; they will learn of my love for you in that way.”

    Religious or not, rather compelling. The search for the Ark of the Covenant may very well lead back to the Rothschilds and Khazars as well.
    In 1933 US citizens were required to turn in their gold. It was stored in the United States Bullion Depository at Fort Knox. I say “was” because there is some question as to weather or not the gold is still there. In August of 2010, Ron Paul announced that he would be introducing legislation to force an audit of the gold reserve. No such audit has taken place.
    America’s nuclear program started in October 1939. And of course was tested in 1945. Rather quick development for a nation that did not yet have computers to aid in the development. Was it really that easy? Even with the assistance of former German scientists? Or is it possible that the Jews already housed the secret in a golden box known as the ark? Is it possible that the Khazar/Ashkenazi faction took possession and control of the Ark prior to the US nuclear program? Is it possible that the secret of the Ark (or one secret of the Ark) was nuclear? Is it possible that a man bearing the Rothschild sold these secrets to the United States? Is it possible that an enormous amount of our Fort Knox gold was used to secure this purchase?
    Is it possible that Adolph Hitler himself was a member of the Rothschild family? Is it possible that Hitler was allowed to escape and made it out alive?

    YOU BET YOUR ASS IT IS!!!
