“The so-called 'Left-Hand Path' - that of Kaulas, Siddhas and Viras - combines the... Tantric worldview with a doctrine of the Übermensch which would put Nietzsche to shame... The Vira - which is to say: the 'heroic' man of Tantrism - seeks to sever all bonds, to overcome all duality between good and evil, honor and shame, virtue and guilt. Tantrism is the supreme path of the absolute absence of law - of shvecchacarī, a word meaning 'he whose law is his own will'." ― Julius Evola, The Path of Cinnabar.

“It is necessary to have “watchers” at hand who will bear witness to the values of Tradition in ever more uncompromising and firm ways, as the anti-traditional forces grow in strength. Even though these values cannot be achieved, it does not mean that they amount to mere “ideas.” These are measures…. Let people of our time talk about these things with condescension as if they were anachronistic and anti-historical; we know that this is an alibi for their defeat. Let us leave modern men to their “truths” and let us only be concerned about one thing: to keep standing amid a world of ruins.” ― Julius Evola, Revolt Against the Modern World: Politics, Religion, and Social Order in the Kali Yuga.

“We are born into this time and must bravely follow the path to the destined end. There is no other way. Our duty is to hold on to the lost position, without hope, without rescue, like that Roman soldier whose bones were found in front of a door in Pompeii, who died at his post during the eruption of Vesuvius because someone forgot to relieve him. That is greatness. That is what it means to be a thoroughbred. The honorable end is the one that can not be taken from a man.” ― Oswald Spengler, Man and Technics: A Contribution to a Philosophy of Life.

Were Jews Germany's real enemy in the USSR?

"Germany's opponents are not the peoples of the Soviet Union, but exclusively the Jewish-Bolshevik Soviet Government with its functionaries, and the Communist Party, which works toward world revolution."

--a directive from Wehrmacht Senior General Alfred Jodl

Stalin and the Jews
from Freispruch für Deutschland by Heinrich Härtle (1965)
translated by Hadding Scott (2008)

The fusion of Russian Communism and Jewry however began much earlier. The word pogrom is of Russian origin. Because Jewry under the rule of the Czars and the Orthodox Church had been oppressed and limited by special laws, the first Jewish revolutionaries and anarchists came out of the Jewish ghettos.*

As a religion and as a nation, Jewish Orthodoxy opposed all attempts at conversion and assimilation. Through centuries Czarist Orthodoxy and Jewish Orthodoxy stood irreconcilably in opposition.

Naturally the Jewish revolutionaries had to use revolutionary socialist and communist ideas and organizations against the hated Czardom. Often Jewish Communism was first an anti-Czarism. In this historical transformation arose the close linkage of Communism and revolutionary Jewry, which a generalizing propaganda then simplified into the unity of Bolshevism and Jewry.

The Catholic professor for philosophy and church-history, Denis Fahr, proved in his writing The Rulers of Russia that in the years 1918-1919 among 556 leading functionaries of the Bolshevik State there were 457 Jews. The Central Committee of the Communist Party consisted of twelve members, of which nine were Jews. In the Council of the People's Commissars** were found seventeen Jews and five non-Jews. According to official information, in 1920, out of 545 members of the Bolshevik Administration 447 were Jews, and that with a Jewish population of 7.8 million within a total population of 160 million.

The Jewish Chronicle of 6 January 1933 reveals that in Soviet Russia a third of the civil servants are Jews. That is a six-fold overrepresentation compared to non-Jewish civil servants. According to a statistic that was presented to the American Military Tribunal in the Einsatzgruppen Trial, the Supreme Soviet in the Crimea consisted of 50% Jews, and the People's Commissariat consisted of 40% Jews.

Jewish participation in the People's Commissariats:

school system............80%................degree of overrepresentation:16-fold
health system............80%...........................................................16-fold
economics.................80%...........................................................16-fold
business....................60%...........................................................12-fold
finances....................25%.............................................................5-fold
justice.......................30%.............................................................6-fold
NKVD........................45%.............................................................9-fold

For this calculation the Jewish portion of the total population was assumed to be at least 5%. Other estimates calculate with 6%.

Especially strong was the Jewish participation as military commissars and secret police. The High Commissar of the Federation of Peoples of Danzig and later President of the International Red Cross, Professor Burckhardt, reports that the Polish Minister-President Slavoy-Skladkovsy stated in a conversation that 90% of all Communists in Poland were Jews and 60% of all Polish Jews were Communists.

This strong judaization of the Polish Communist Party made the identification of Jewry and Bolshevism seem immediately credible in Poland; perhaps this judaization was also largely a reaction of the Jewish population to the anti-Semitic measures of the clerical-authoritarian Polish leadership class, which at the same time had a radical anti-Communist orientation. Here Jewish and Communist interests seemed largely to conceal themselves.

Such facts had to be propagandistically distorted and exaggerated in order to be able then, in the struggle over life and death, to deal with the Red Army -- especially with the partisans -- Jews and commissars, Jews and partisans, as a unity.

In a number of orders of the OKW and OKH, and of the Heeresgruppen and Armees of the Ostheer that were cited at Nuremberg, Jewry and Bolshevism are therefore designated and attacked as the most dangerous enemies. One can justly assess these representations only if one considers that in the east the same circumstances did not govern as on other fronts; rather it was a permanent war-emergency, in which all civilized laws of war, other than strength, had been set aside long ago.

In an order of the Army High Command (OKW) from 18 June 1941 the representation of the unity of Jewry and Communism appears especially drastic:

"Germany's opponents are not the peoples of the Soviet Union, but exclusively the Jewish-Bolshevik Soviet Government with its functionaries, and the Communist Party, which works toward world revolution."

Nevertheless the Wehrmacht did not immediately take part in the Jew-hostile anti-terror, but on the contrary, repeatedly stemmed and often even prevented pogroms of the population liberated from Bolshevist oppression. Certainly they could not avoid being aware that these pogroms were not just inhuman madness, but the spontaneous outbreak of retaliation in a population that, amid the retreat of the Red Army and the NKVD troops, grasped the first opportunity to avenge itself on its tormentors, and in the frenzy of retribution wanted to make Jewry pay for all sufferings that they had endured under Soviet terror. Collective terror brought collective retaliation.

The Warsaw Uprising*** led to Jewry's most serious losses. It could be suppressed only by military means. Here warfare was waged on both sides, in which not only Jewish men, but even Jewish women and children remorselessly committed themselves, and were combatted just as brutally. In vain had the Jewish side hoped for Polish and Soviet help. The frightful consequences are known, since over 500,000 Jews had lived in the Warsaw Ghetto.****

Open warfare however remained the exception, partisan warfare the rule. Terror and counter-terror supported the assumption of the far-reaching identity of Jews, partisans, saboteurs, spies, and snipers.

As effective as the equation Bolshevism = Jewry may have been in war-propaganda, in its military results it recoiled on its authors. Necessarily the nationalist and slavic-imperialist forces of the Soviet Power were thereby dangerously underestimated.***** Whatever pretexts and causes one can adduce for the struggle of the Einsatzgruppen, it remains the shocking fact that in the defense against partisans one adapted to the level of the enemies as one punished the strong participation of Jewish elements in the Bolshevik terror with collective liquidation of defenseless Jewish civilian population, and thereby committed war-crimes which are as unjustifiable as the mass-slaughter of defenseless Germans in the east, and the terror-bombing in the west.

Since 1945, however, wherever the West had to fight against the same enemy, against the same degenerate methods of warfare, it has come to such brutal retaliatory operations. In Nuremberg one knows only the retaliation, not the provocation.
__________________________
* This kind of explanation for why so many Jews have been leftist revolutionaries amounts to an apology for the Jews. The identification of Jews with leftist revolution antedates the 1917 Bolshevik takeover in Russia by well over a century, and it was by no means limited to Russia. Jews had an interest in the overthrow of all true monarchies because of the penchant of absolute monarchs for expelling all Jews periodically. The French author Édouard Drumont argued that Jews had been heavily involved in the French Revolution. Circumstantially, it seems likely, since the importance of Freemasonry in various revolutions is generally admitted and the doctrine of the higher degrees of Freemasonry, above the third degree, is largely Jewish Cabalism. Freemasonry is also heavily populated with Jews. A famous Jewish Freemason was Moses Hess, mentor of Karl Marx. A well known revolutionary conspirator of the 18th century was Adam "Spartacus" Weishaupt, head of the quasi-Masonic "Bavarian Illuminati," whose doctrine included key points that later appeared in Marxism.

** The Council of the People's Commissars is what the government of the Soviet Union was called immediately following the Bolshevik takeover. The name was invented by Leon Trotsky (born Bronstein).

*** Härtle means the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 18 January to 16 May 1943, not to be confused with the Warsaw Uprising staged by the Polish Home Army 1 August to 2 October 1944. The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was caused by the false rumor that Jews deported from Warsaw to Treblinka were being exterminated there instead of simply being made to work.

**** Härtle seems to imply that all 500,000 residents of the Warsaw Ghetto were killed. This could only be the case if one assumes that the Jews deported from the Ghetto were killed. By the time of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising most of the Jews had been deported. The Jewish death toll in the uprising was only 13,000. Another 50,000 surrendered at the end, and they were not all killed, as is proven by the existence of Marek Edelman, who wrote a book about his experience in the uprising.

***** The Germans probably could have done more to secure Slavic support, but the primary methods used by the Soviet Government to motivate opposition to the German invasion seemed to have little to do with nationalism or pan-Slavic sentiment. Most notable is the deployment of military commissars with submachineguns with instructions to shoot anyone who tried to retreat. Solzhenisyn wrote that the Russian peasants at first welcomed the Germans as liberators but then became disenchanted when they were not allowed to leave the collective farms.

General Idi Amin Dada

This is a must see:

Does Mein Kampf say that Jews should be gassed?

"Chief US prosecutor Jackson is away conducting his high-grade lynching party in Nuremberg. I don't mind what he does to the Nazis, but I hate to see the pretense that he is running a court and proceeding according to common law. This is a little too sanctimonious a fraud to meet my old-fashioned ideas." -- U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Harlan Fiske Stone


Jackson Falsifies
from Freispruch für Deutschland by Heinrich Haertle (1965)
translated by Hadding Scott (2008)

Even where harsher words were used, for example "annihilation," this did not necessarily have to mean physical extermination, rather the annihilation of Jewish power.* Similarly, Churchill demanded in an official speech before the House of Commons in September 1943 "that Prussian militarism and National-Socialism be exterminated root and branch." He could not have meant physical extermination with that.

Chief Prosecutor Jackson** demonstrated the lack of evidence for this "plan of annihilation" when he tried to trace it back to Hitler's Mein Kampf. He asserts that Hitler already at that time regretted that the Jews had not been exterminated with poison gas in the last war. That is simply a falsification.

Since this falsification is also still repeated today in the re-education literature, let's review briefly the actual text and its context.

Were it possible to prove a plan of extermination against the Jews already from Hitlers' Mein Kampf, then the collective guilt from anti-Jewish crimes would apply to every German citizen and soldier. An exact analysis of the actual wording, however, proves the opposite:

Hitler does not turn against Jewry per se and demand its total extermination; rather he attacks Marxism and its destructive effect in the First World War. Propagandistically generalizing, he turns above all against Jewish Marxists and asserts that had the German working class of 1914 in its inner orientation consisted of Marxists, the war would have been ended in three weeks and Germany would have been crushed. That the German People still fought proves that the Marxist false doctrine had not eaten its way in deeply enough. But to the extent that the German soldier again falls into the hands of Marxist leaders, he is lost to the Fatherland.

Only after this qualification does that passage follow which ostensibly demands the extermination of the Jews:

"If at the outbreak and during the war, twelve or fifteen thousand of these Hebrew nation-corruptors had been held under poison gas once, as hundreds of thousands of our best German workers from all classes and callings had to endure on the battlefield, then the sacrifice of millions on the front would not have been in vain. On the contrary: twelve thousand scoundrels eliminated at the right time would perhaps have saved the lives of a million Germans who are more orderly and more valuable for the future."

Hitler then reproaches bourgeois statecraft for thoughtlessly sending millions of soldiers to a bloody death while declaring ten or twelve thousand traitors, black-marketeers, usurers, and swindlers as sacrosanct.

With this out-of-context passage, which was written in 1925 and relates to the war situation of 1914, Jackson can prove no plan of extermination for 1942. Nevertheless this citation wanders like a ghost through the whole literature of re-education, and even Dr. Hans Buchheim of the Institut für Zeitgeschichte still repeats this nonsense with his writing published in 1958.

As the Jewish writer Tenenbaum confirms in his book Race and Reich, despite the difficulty of exchanging foreign currency, 1500 Jews per month were able to emigrate legally from Germany. The Jewish historians Poliakoff and Wulf confirm in their book, The Third Reich and the Jews, that prior to 31 December 1942, altogether 557,357 Jews were able to emigrate from the Old Reich, Austria, and the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia.

If not all were able to emigrate, it was due not to restrictive measures on the German side but to the barriers which the rest of the world had erected against Jewish immigration.***

Even Madam Professor Arendt confirms that in the pre-war years a modus vivendi was able to be found which made possible a cooperation of Germans and Jews regarding emigration. The National-Socialists, she says, had essentially adopted a pro-Zionist attitude. Thus in this period an actual collaboration between Jews and Germans had come about. In those first years an apparently reciprocal and highly satisfying agreement between "Nazi officials" and the Jewish Agency for Palestine was struck, which made it possible for the emigrants to transfer their money in the form of German goods.**** What they had paid in Germany, was refunded to them in pounds on arrival in Palestine. This led to the result that in the thirties, as American Jewry organized the famous boycott of German goods, Palestine was flooded with all possible products "Made in Germany." (The author can confirm this for 1937 from his own observation in all cities of Palestine .) This led in the Eichmann Trial to the paradoxical situation that the accused could assert that back in the day he had saved hundreds of thousands of Jews. Back then a functionary from Palestine visited him in Berlin to invite him to Palestine for a sight-seeing tour of their land.

__________________
* The word Vernichtung, annihilation, is used by Adolf Hitler in Mein Kampf to describe the Habsburg Monarchy's policy of trying to turn Austria's German population into Czechs. Hyperbolic language seems to be a common German vice; at least it was one of Hitler's vices when addressing the general public; perhaps the dramatic language was helpful for motivating people. It is a common practice among Holocaust promoters to zoom in on the shocking word or phrase while ignoring context that clarifies the meaning. A particularly glaring example of this is Heinrich Himmler's speech of 4 October 1943 wherein he refers to Ausrottung (usually translated "extermination") of the Jews, but juxtaposes it with the word Evakuierung, evacuation. Since these words both refer to the same action, the question becomes, is Himmler being euphemistic with Evakuierung -- as the Holocaust promoters take for granted -- or is he being hyperbolic with Ausrotting?

**Robert H. Jackson, the Chief Prosecutor in the International MilitaryTribunal, was simultaneously an Associate Justice of the United StatesSupreme Court. He had been a political protégé of Franklin Roosevelt.

*** Britain restricted Jewish immigration to Palestine beginning in 1937.

**** What is described here is an arrangement that allowed Jews leaving Germany to take their money with them. It was necessary to convert the Jews' German currency into goods which then could be exported and sold for foreign currency, because the reichsmark was not accepted by foreign banks. This fact also made it difficult for Germany to import foreign goods: with what could they pay? The solution was that instead of paying for foreign goods with currency, Germany would trade goods for goods. For example, in one instance Standard Oil was paid with Hohner harmonicas.

Germans versus Jews, 1938

from Freispruch für Deutschland by Heinrich Härtle (1965)
translated by Hadding Scott (2008)

"In the struggle for life and death there is no legality." - Winston Churchill

Forewarnings of the Catastrophe
In the second half of the year 1938 international tensions sharpened, and the Czech mobilization evoked a danger of war which, in combination with the overt war-agitation in an influential part of the western press, also seriously burdened German-Jewish relations. When, after a series of murderous assaults against representatives of the German Reich abroad, the young Polish Jew Gruenspan murdered the embassy advisor [Ernst] vom Rath in Paris, it came on 9 November 1938 to the so-called "Kristallnacht," the first pogrom in German history in centuries.

It could be proven before the International Military Tribunal that this was not, as in earlier pogroms, especially in Slavic states, about a spontaneous outburst of popular rage, rather this operation was forced on the chain of command, without the knowledge of the party leadership and most ministers, by Goebbels and radical elements in the SA leadership, supported by the police. Demonstrably, almost all members of the Cabinet, the national leaders of the NSDAP, and Hitler himself repudiated these mad actions. After the mischief had been done, it was believed on the grounds of statecraft and political prestige that it was necessary to cover the action and to present the Jews as the scapegoat. Instead of calling to account those guilty for the damage which they had caused for Germany domestically and abroad, laws and measures were enacted which made the situation of Jewry in Germany unbearable. *

Deprivation of Rights
Nevertheless, no serious consequences were derived from this exacerbation, even abroad. This may partly be explained as follows: the anti-German propaganda had already portrayed the situation of the Jews as so bad, that these measures could no longer cause surprise. Many also compared the anti-Semitic violence with the harshness that had been applied a few years earlier against the Roehm Revolt. One compared the 35 deaths of the "Kristallnacht" with the remorselessness with which the government of that time had proceeded against Hitler's veteran and valiant fellow strugglers, especially in the SA. They had received much more brutal treatment than the "Jewish Global Enemy." The so-called "St. Bartholomew's Day massacre"** of 1934 claimed ten times as many victims from the Germans as the "Kristallnacht" of 1938 from the Jews.

No doubt, with that, the soil of legality was left behind, and measures were taken which were no longer commensurate even with the Program of the NSDAP. The deterioration of Germany's international relations to the point of a danger of war then diverted the German public from anti-Semitic excesses to its own struggle for survival.

As critically as one must judge the first Jew-hostile actions of the pre-war period, however, one will nevertheless be able to establish that originally no destruction of the Jews was planned, neither in Germany nor in Europe or indeed in the World.




In this regard the Soviet Chief Prosecutor Rudenko exaggerates to the point of absurdity, as he asserts on 8 February 1946:

"The fascist conspirators had planned the extermination of the Jews of the World to the last man, and carried out this annihilation during the whole time of their conspiracy since 1933."

That the extermination of the Jewry of the World presupposes a German world-government, no normal man will doubt. It is also because of this that it was necessary to attribute to the German People, as the most mendacious claim of war-propaganda, that they were striving for world domination. No less absurd is his assertion that the extermination of all Jews in the whole world was already being conducted from 1933 to 1939. The representative of the most anti-human system of government in modern times needed to attribute such insane brutality to the German leadership.

Nevertheless it was also not permitted to him, according to the laws of logic, to regard the members of the Reich Government as so idiotic that they promoted Jewish emigration with all available means, so as to be able at the same time to exterminate the same Jews.

One need only object to this crazed zealot that the radical anti-Semitic organ of the pre-war period, der Stuermer, had been banned for the Hitler Youth by [Baldur von] Schirach. Jewish civil servants who had to be let go after the new laws were able to draw their pensions until shortly before the outbreak of the war.


The Reichskommissar for the Netherlands, Dr. Seyss-Inquart, was able to prove to the court that Jewish civil servants who had to be let go received their pensions until March 1941.

The more events developed toward war, the more radical the anti-Semitic measures became, and approached to that state which both Churchill and Goering identified with the observation: "In the struggle of a people over life and death there is no legality."***

Above all, however, the soldiers and officers of the Wehrmacht in this period of rising bellicosity had to consider even the anti-Jewish actions in the context of war.

Speaking freely in Nuremberg, the leader of German broadcast media in the war, Ministerialdirektor Hans Fritzsche, declares under oath as a witness on the Jewish Question:

"I wished a limitation of the overwhelming influence of Jewry on German politics, economy, and culture after the First World War, a limitation that corresponded to the numerical portion of the Jews in Germany's population."

Fritzsche thereby declares what was the conviction of the overwhelming majority of the German people and its Wehrmacht.

When, in place of the immigration restrictions demanded here, the general segregation of Jews and Germans was elevated into law, emigration increased, which the Government (as far as the extreme difficulty of exchanging currency permitted****) sought to promote.

Emigration and Extermination are incompatible.
The annihilation would indeed have been realizable only if the Jews had remained in the German and European sphere of control. Had a plan of annihilation actually existed at that time, force would have been used to prevent the Jews from emigrating.

_____________________________
* Härtle here was accepting the standard account of who was responsible for Kristallnacht.
There are reasons to doubt this account, detailed in Ingrid Weckert's book Flashpoint.
A brief discussion by Weckert may be read on the IHR website.
http://www. ihr. org/jhr/v06/v06p183_Weckert. html

** The real St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre was a massacre of several thousand Huguenots by French Catholics that began on St. Bartholomew's Day (24 August) 1572 and lasted several months. There is really no comparison between this and the Night of the Long Knives, which lasted only a few days (30 June - 2 July 1934) and included 85 known summary executions.
Härtle uses the word sogenannte (so-called) in front of "St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre" for a reason. The metaphor is an example of gross hyperbole. As is often the case with events from the Third Reich, however, speculation about additional, undocumented killings has run rampant, multiplying the documented number. The known death toll of Kristallnacht <>(35 dead) has also been augmented with speculation, as one might expect.

*** Churchill said, "In the struggle for life and death there is no legality.
" Goering's version, translated above, is, "Im Kampf eines Volkes auf Leben und Tod gibt es keine Legalität."

**** Germany had great difficulty obtaining foreign currency because of the worldwide Jewish boycott of German goods.
The London Daily Express of March 24, 1933 bore this headline: "Judea Declares War on Germany - Jews of All the World Unite - Boycott of German Goods - Mass Deportations."

IT'S COMIN'--HELTER SKELTER

A "Guest Blog" by my esteemed associate Noel from THE BLACK COLLAR MANIFESTO:
___________________________________________


IT'S COMIN'--HELTER SKELTER

After Western civilization collapses in a race war, Charles Manson will be remembered as the canary in the coal mine. As Sandy Good said, in an A Current Affair hatchet job, "Devil's Disciple," with journalist Steve Dunleavy, "We knew our backs were against the wall, and we had the balls, we had the balls and the heart to work for change." Further, "In revolution, there's going to be death. It's inevitable." Few understand that in the scheme of things the death of Sharon Tate et al meant, and still means, absolutely nothing. Nor does the imprisonment of Charles Manson. The thought he thought cannot be unthought. It is still reverberating in the public forum.

One has to have some historical perspective to understand that what has been dubbed "The Family" was an organic response to the Hippie movement, which was the equivalent of a party on the deck of the Titanic as it crashes on the proverbial ice berg. As Charles Manson said in an interview with an even scummier journalist, Geraldo Rivera, "I don't care about no society. The public's a bunch of assholes." Hack journalists have used all manner of "evil" archetypes to vilify the messenger of the zeitgeist.

But let's get some perspective here, people. This is a fella who has little more aspirations than to have a motorcycle (perhaps a dune buggy or two), a stable of whores and a guitar. When asked about his aspirations of being a musician, Charlie told one interviewer:

"[The music business was] a bigger jail than I just got out of. I don't want to take my time going to work. I got a motorcycle and a sleeping bag and ten or fifteen girls. What the hell do I want to go off and go to work for?"

Charlie's comments were made in response to Bugliosi's multi-faceted theory about Manson's plan for world domination, which includes a juicy sub-plot about Terry Melcher spurning Charlie's music and thus Charlie. Who we believe is irrelevant, but the sore spot Hollywood still has over this whole sordid series of events is a story in and of itself. One of the major purveyors of mindless bullshit, explicitly designed to devalue and decimate the interests of whites, Hollywood, has always had a peculiarly strong hatred for Charlie. One might say Hollywood is afraid of Charlie: "Hollywood's been afraid since it began. Hollywood knows Hollywood. Anyone that knows the garbage cans in the alley understands Hollywood." It must have hit a nerve that Charlie was rubbing elbows with the likes of Brian Wilson and saw their existence for what it was.

The nobodies were on to something the somebodies wouldn't have the foresight to worry about on their best days: a race war was coming; society had become a joke; human survival was tied to the earth, not the other way around; and the real prison was the 9-5 "lives" Romero-like zombies were living 24/7, with a few holidays thrown in for a safety release valve.

All demographic estimates predict that whites will be a minority in America by 2050. Whites with any sense of self-preservation would have lauded the beginning of a revolution, but instead the revolution fell on deaf ears when it was televised to mindless zombies.

Effectively, we live in a George A. Romero movie, and no-one has gotten the joke in any of the movies Romero made. It's not about the zombies. Americans are the zombies!

And in a world like that, Charlie calls a spade a spade:

"The brotherhood of the gun rules the world. I don’t give a fuck about votes or getting elected into being a politician. And I don’t give a fuck about playing no wise holy man. All I want is order. I want order in the perspective of the numbers. And if you give me order in the numbers, fuck the personality of it. I don’t care about the personality of it. Get with the program or be destroyed. That’s all that is.”

A man can still dream that an effective war against zombie-ism will be waged. We are literally dying for order!

In fact, I have a dream that we will shoot the next MLK and John Lennon in the fucking head, but this time there won't be as much hand wringing bullshit.

TERROR’S ADVOCATE (2007)

TERROR’S ADVOCATE (2007)
The first time I ever heard of Jaques Verges was in the 1980s, when I first watched the EXCELLENT four-hour documentary HOTEL TERMINUS, about the wartime and postwar activities of Klaus Barbi, including his capture in South America and his Trial in France. Jaques Verges was his legal representative. After watching the interviews with Verges including some background on his career, I remember saying “I could watch a four hour documentary about him.”

A year or so ago I read there was actually a documentary being made about him by Barbet Schroeder, the same filmmaker responsible for the superb documentary GENERAL IDI AMIN DADA, and oddly enough BARFLY, the Charles Bukowski biopic.

I’m working on a full-length review of this film, there is a lot to say about the film and the subject matter, but in the meantime here is the trailer and I’ll be archiving longer articles from online in the comments section to this blog.

In the meantime I will say that this is a superb documentary and a MUST SEE for anyone interested in the subject matter of other films such as HOTEL TERMINUS, THE BATTLE OF ALGIERS, THE SORROW AND THE PITY, MUNICH, or anything to do with international terrorism and anti-colonialism in general. A VERY INTERESTING FILM

FROM: http://www.terrorsadvocatefilm.com/
Communist, anti-colonialist, right-wing extremist? What convictions guide the moral mind of Jacques Vergès? Barbet Schroeder takes us down history’s darkest paths in his attempt to illuminate the mystery behind this enigmatic figure. As a young lawyer during the Algerian war, Vergès espoused the anti-colonialist cause and defended Djamila Bouhired, ‘la Pasionaria’, who bore her country’s hopes for freedom on her shoulders and was sentenced to death for planting bombs in cafes. He obtained her release, married her and had two children with her. Then suddenly, at the height of an illustrious career, Vergès disappeared without trace for eight years. He re-emerged from his mysterious absence, taking on the defense of terrorists of all kinds, from Magdalena Kopp and Anis Naccache to Carlos the Jackal. He represented Historical monsters such as Nazi lieutenant Klaus Barbie. From the lawyer’s Inflammatory and provocative cases to his controversial terrorist links, Barbet Schroeder follows the winding trail left by this ‘devil’s advocate’, as he forges his unique path in law and politics. The filmmaker explores and questions the history of ‘blind terrorism’ and leads us towards shocking revelations that expose long-hidden links in history.

A German View of Irregular Warfare in World War II

"Irregular Warfare" by Heinrich Härtle (1965)
translated by Hadding Scott (2008).

Only modern war-technology allows partisan warfare to become so dangerous. Parachutes, radio, and new weapons made possible yet another type of irregular warfare: sabotage troops, terror commandos. Especially in the West they were dropped from aircraft or smuggled in on the seaway, collaborated with partisans and Maquisards, raided headquarters, destroyed munitions camps, blew up arms factories, murdered, assassinated gangster-style. The English Government even distributed a "Handbook for Irregular Warfare." Regular troops were dangerously disadvantaged if not defenseless against these deliberately criminal tactics.

Only in October 1942 does the systematic German response begin. On 7 October 1942 it is stated in the Wehrmacht Report, which as usual is broadcast on radio:

"In the future all terror and sabotage troops of the Brits, and their accomplices, who conduct themselves not as soldiers but as bandits, will be treated as such by German troops, and annihilated remorselessly in battle where they even appear." On 18 October Hitler issued a corresponding order.

Why should this even more dangerous and more insidiously operating western variety of partisan be warded off more cautiously than Stalin's snipers?

In Nuremberg even this anti-terror, not the terror, is declared a war-crime; only the consequences, not the causes, are accused. Field Marshal Keitel portrays on 4 April 1946 the effect of this military underworld. Daily, numerous cases were discussed in situation conferences. Nevertheless the countermeasure was not carried out with the expected severity because these methods and likewise the defense against them were too alien to the soldierly tradition. Back then General Field Marshals Rommel, von Rundstedt, and Kesselring either modified or completely did not apply the anti-sabotage order, as defense attorney [Dr. Hans] Laternser was able to prove. (Since 1945 we have been schooled, especially on the western side, about how the barbarization of war shows especially clearly in Asia.)

Senior General Jodl reports that the German countermeasures related directly to the English close-combat doctrine. Hitler's order was supposed to achieve, more than anything, a deterrent effect. In fact the so-called commando operations did decline in 1944. The immediate provocation for the countermeasures was the capture of the orders of the Canadian airborne brigade, and its effect, which had been documented through photos. For example, members of the Organisation Todt, unarmed old men, were bound in such a way that the loop around their neck was bound at the other end around bent-back lower legs, so that the very victim must strangle himself.

Jodl had almost kept these gruesome procedures secret from Hitler and the German public. After a short time a commando on Sark Island proved that Germans had again been killed with this sadistic method. About other commando troops it was reported that they appeared as civilians. Under their shoulders they carried pistols which, when the hand was raised in ostensible surrender, fired a shot.

After the experiences of the last decades one can only wonder with what investment in public hate-propaganda and juristic hairsplitting the Moral Judges at Nuremberg condemned the treating as bandits of soldiers who also operated like bandits. Furthermore Jodl was able to prove that Hitler's order of 18 October 1942, at the request of the Supreme Commander in the West, von Rundstedt, was altered and partially nullified.

JDS: PROJECT UPDATES 8.17.08

PROJECT UPDATES 8.17.08
I am nowhere near specifying a release date for any of these, or the order in which they may be finished and published, but here is a progress report for anyone interested in what is in the works:

PROJECT FAUST: The first draft is up to approximately 400 pages at this point, and I am only 1/3-1/2 done with the first draft. At this stage it is focused primarily on Western Civilization, although I will probably include appendices dealing with non-Western material of note. It makes sense, in keeping with the Faustian theme to maintain a Eurocentric focus. That also liberates it to be tied to other projects.

STUDIES IN SATANISM: The next installment of collected essays following the same basic format and structure as ESSAYS IN SATANISM. I have quite a bit done, but a LOT more I want to do before I call it a book. I want to have at least 500 pages worth of essays before publishing it.

COLLECTED POLITICAL ESSAYS: As yet untitled. This is a collection of social and political essays, criticism, book reviews etc. I have quite a bit done on this. Some of it is very controversial and should be of interest even to people who aren’t particularly interested in politics. There is something here to make everyone unhappy! So far this book or PROJECT FAUST is most likely to be the next thing published.

On a side-note; I have also been tinkering with expanding the DEEP SATANISM essay from ESSAYS IN SATANISM into a small book under that title. I’m still undecided as to how I want to handle some of the material, but it is a possibility.

I am hoping to have another book out, one of these, before the end of 2008.

Thank You to everyone who read ESSAYS IN SATANISM and have been supportive of my projects.

Election Choice 2008: AIPAC or AIPAC?

This collection is a follow up to an earlier blog "What is AIPAC?"

For the full aricles, read the "comments" section below this post, I have archived them there:

1. Looking Into the Lobby The American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference is one of Washington’s most important—and least reported—events. by Philip Weiss

2. Philip Weiss on AIPAC, Editorial from the Occidental Observer.

3. The Israel Lobby and the Psychology of Influence by Kevin MacDonald.

Interesting material, worth reading (see "comments" below).

Madagascar or Auschwitz? (Part 3: End of Section)

From Freispruch für Deutschland by Heinrich Härtle (1965)
Translation by Hadding Scott (2008)
______________________________

The Jewish author [Joseph G.] Burg confirms that not only the emigration agencies but also the German Foreign Ministry worked for the realization of the Madagascar Project:

"Diplomatic advisor [Franz] Rademacher, who took over the Office of Jewish Emigration in 1939, personally reported to Hitler that support for the Zionists was endangering the traditional German-Arab relations. Already on 15 August 1940 the Madagascar Plan was set in writing. A month earlier, on 12 July 1940, a detailed plan for Jewish emigration had been recorded in a protocol by the Government of the Reich."

Furthermore the Madagascar Plan pops up in Hitlers' Tabletalk.

It is certainly not proven that the compiler, Dr. Henry Picker, reproduces the exact wording of the conversations. Probably various expressions are tendentiously exaggerated. With his mentality, however, certainly Picker had no motive to alter the factual content in this case.
There, on 24 July 1942, Hitler took a position on the Jewish Question as follows:

"In this Second World War, as a struggle over life and death, let it never be forgotten that World Jewry, following the declaration of war by the World Zionist Congress and its leader Chaim Weizmann (in his message to England's Prime Minister Chamberlain), is the most inexorable opponent of National-Socialism, enemy number one. Jewry woos Europe economically, but Europe must refuse out of holy egoism, since Jewry is racially tougher. After the conclusion of the war let Europe take a rigorous stand on the position that city after city will be smashed if the trash-Jews don't come out and migrate to Madagascar or some other Jewish nation-state." *

As shocking as the rabid language of Hitler appears, this passage offers no proof whatsoever for a plan of extermination, neither for wartime nor for the postwar period.

On 17 June 1941 Hitler discussed Madagascar in a conversation with Mussolini. It was even one of the preconditions for the peace treaty with France, that France must cede the colony Madagascar as territory for a Jewish state.** Yet again on 21 August 1942 the Madagascar Plan pops up in a note from Undersecretary of State Luther in the Foreign Office.


In a comparison between Madagascar and Palestine, the founding of a Jewish nation-state on this island appears incomparably more auspicious. Rendered fanatical by religio-political messianism, the Zionist leadership wanted to found a Jewish state precisely where it could only be imposed by war and must permanently be threatened by the danger of war on all sides. In contrast, the realization of the Madagascar Plan would have been by far less dangerous, economically more reasonable, richer in prospects, and politically less risky.

If this had been accomplished, it would never have come to an Auschwitz!

William S. Schlamm writes correctly that Israel can become secure against the Arab opposition only with a population of 5-6 million.

If however this state of 2 million was only able to be founded and hitherto maintained because foreign powers prevented the Arabs from driving back the Jewish invaders, how could those people be ready to wait patiently until the Jews had tripled their number?

Some figures prove the dangerousness of this experiment! The Arab neighbors of Israel number about 70 million in a space of 7,800,000 square kilometers. Israel on the other hand has only 2 million inhabitants on about 20,000 square kilometers. And behind the Arab enemies of Israel stand another 400 million likeminded Moslems.

Compare with that Madagascar, the fourth largest island in the world, with about 600,000 square kilometers, three times as large as Britain, 20 times larger than Belgium! Southern Madagascar, which, with 240,000 square kilometers is twelve times as large as Palestine, conceals virgin land, rich soil, and favorable prospects for agriculture and cattle ranching.

Incomparably more advantageous in any case than the current Zionist territory!

Certainly there will hardly ever again be offered such favorable opportunities for a Jewish nation-state on Madagascar as in 1940-41.

_______________________
* This passage was omitted from English-language editions of Hitler's Table Talk. Clearly it poses a problem for proponents of the Holocaust Story. Heinz Peter Longerich, a supporter of Deborah Lipstadt, provides the following improbable exegesis: "Hitler's statements after this point, i.e. from the Summer of 1942 on - about possible "resettlement projects" - are unquestionably diversions meant to deceive his listeners; for example, his remarks at his dinner table on 24 July 1942, when he tried to make his listeners (consisting of personal aids and private guests) believe that the "Führer" had nothing to do with the rumoured murder of the Jews.

http://www.hdot.org/trial/defense/pl1/18

** Franz Rademacher's memo of 3 July 1940, "The Jewish Question in the Peace Treaty," is easily found online. Rademacher says: "In the Peace Treaty France must make the island of Madagascar available for the solution of the Jewish question, and to resettle and compensate the approximately 25,000 French citizens living there. The island will be transferred to Germany under a mandate." Although an armistice had been signed on 25 June 1940, no peace treaty between France and Germany was actually ratified during World War II. Nonetheless, according to anecdotal information that I have, some Jews did emigrate from German-controlled Europe to the anticipated Jewish homeland of Madagascar in the period 1940-1942.

Are You Ready to Face the Facts About Israel?

This article is an instant classic.
Typical Judeo-Christian hypocricy.... file under "Israel LOL!!!"

Are You Ready to Face the Facts About Israel?
by Paul Craig Roberts

"On October 21 (1948) the Government of Israel took a decision that was to have a lasting and divisive effect on the rights and status of those Arabs who lived within its borders: the official establishment of military government in the areas where most of the inhabitants were Arabs." - Martin Gilbert, Israel: A History

I had given up on finding an American with a moral conscience and the courage to go with it and was on the verge of retiring my keyboard when I met the Rev. Thomas L. Are.

Rev. Are is a Presbyterian pastor who used to tell his Atlanta, Georgia, congregation: "I am a Zionist." Like most Americans, Rev. Are had been seduced by Israeli propaganda and helped to spread the propaganda among his congregation.

Around 1990 Rev. Are had an awakening for which he credits the Christian Canon of St. George's Cathedral in Jerusalem and author Marc Ellis, co-editor of the book, Beyond Occupation.

Realizing that his ignorance of the situation on the ground had made him complicit in great crimes, Rev. Are wrote a book hoping to save others from his mistake and perhaps in part to make amends, Israeli Peace/Palestinian Justice, published in Canada in 1994.


Rev. Are researched his subject and wrote a brave book. Keep in mind that 1994 was long prior to Walt and Mearsheimer's recent book, which exposed the power of the Israel Lobby and its ability to control the explanation Americans receive about the "Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

Rev. Are begins with an account of Israel's opening attack on the Palestinians, an event which took place before most Americans alive today were born. He quotes the distinguished British historian, Arnold J. Toynbee: "The treatment of the Palestinian Arabs in 1947 (and 1948) was as morally indefensible as the slaughter of six million Jews by the Nazis. Though nor comparable in quantity to the crimes of the Nazis, it was comparable in quality."

Golda Meir, considered by Israelis as a great leader and by others as one of history's great killers, disputed the facts: "It was not as though there was a Palestinian people in Palestine and we came and threw them out and took their country away from them. They did not exist."
Golda Meir's apology for Israel's great crimes is so counter-factual that it blows the mind.

Palestinian refugee camps still exist outside Palestine filled with Palestinians and their descendants whose towns, villages, homes and lands were seized by the Israelis in 1948. Rev.

Are provides the reader with Na'im Ateek's description of what happened to him, an 11-year old, when the Jews came to take Beisan on May 12, 1948. Entire Palestinian communities simply disappeared.
In 1949 the United Nations counted 711,000 Palestinian refugees.
In 2005 the United Nations Relief and Works Agency estimated 4.25 million Palestinians and their descendants were refugees from their homeland.
The Israeli policy of evicting non-Jews has continued for six decades. On June 19, 2008, the Laity Committee in the Holy Land reported in Window Into Palestine that the Israeli Ministry of Interior is taking away the residency rights of Jerusalem Christians who have been reclassified as "visitors in their own city."
On December 10, 2007, MK Ephraim Sneh boasted in the Jerusalem Post that Israel had achieved "a true Zionist victory" over the UN partition plan "which sought to establish two nations in the land of Israel." The partition plan had assigned Israel 56 percent of Palestine, leaving the inhabitants with only 44 percent. But Israel had altered this over time. Sneh proudly declared: "When we complete the permanent agreement, we will hold 78 percent of the land while the Palestinians will control 22 percent."
Sneb could have added that the 22 percent is essentially a collection of unconnected ghettos cut off from one another and from roads, water, medical care, and jobs.
Rev. Are documents that the abuse of Palestinians' human rights is official Israeli policy. Killings, torture, and beatings are routine. On May 17, 1990, the Washington Post reported that Save the Children "documented indiscriminate beating, tear-gassing and shooting of children at home or just outside the house playing in the street, who were sitting in the classroom or going to the store for groceries."
On January 19, 1988, Israeli Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin, later Prime Minister, announced the policy of "punitive beating" of Palestinians. The Israelis described the purpose of punitive beating: "Our task is to recreate a barrier and once again put the fear of death into the Arabs of the area."
According to Save the Children, beatings of children and women are common. Rev. Are, citing the report in the Washington Post, writes: "Save the Children concluded that one-third of beaten children were under ten years old, and one-fifth under the age of five. Nearly a third of the children beaten suffered broken bones."
On February 8, 1988, Newsweek magazine quoted an Israeli soldier: "We got orders to knock on every door, enter and take out all the males. The younger ones we lined up with their faces against the wall, and soldiers beat them with billy clubs. This was no private initiative, these were orders from our company commander.... After one soldier finished beating a detainee, another soldier called him 'you Nazi,' and the first man shot back: 'You bleeding heart.' When one soldier tried to stop another from beating an Arab for no reason, a fist fight broke out."
These were the old days before conscience was eliminated from the ranks of the Israeli military.
In the London Sunday Times, June 19, 1977, Ralph Schoenman, executive director of the

Bertrand Russell Foundation, wrote: "Israeli interrogators routinely ill-treat and torture Arab prisoners. Prisoners are hooded or blindfolded and are hung by their wrists for long periods. Most are struck in the genitals or in other ways sexually abused. Most are sexually assaulted. Others are administered electric shock."
Amnesty International concluded that "there is no country in the world in which the use of official and sustained torture is as well established and documented as in the case of Israel."
Even the pro-Israeli Washington Post reported: "Upon arrest, a detainee undergoes a period of starvation, deprivation of sleep by organized methods and prolonged periods during which the prisoner is made to stand with his hands cuffed and raised, a filthy sack covering the head. Prisoners are dragged on the ground, beaten with objects, kicked, stripped and placed under ice-cold showers."
Sounds like Abu Gharib. There are news reports that Israeli torture experts participated in the torture of the detainees assembled by the American military as part of the Bush Regime's propaganda onslaught to convince Americans that Iraq was overflowing with al-Qaeda terrorists. On July 23, 2008, Antiwar.com posted an Iraqi news report that the Iraqi government had released a total of 109,087 Iraqis that the Americans had "detained."
Obviously, these "terrorist detainees" had been used for the needs of Bush Regime propaganda. No one will ever know how many of them were abused by Israeli torturers imported by the CIA.
Rev. Are's book makes sensible suggestions for resolving the conflict that Israel began. However, the problem is that Israeli governments believe only in force. The policy of the Israeli government has always been to beat, kill, and brutalize Palestinians into submission and flight. Anyone who doubts this can read the book of Israel's finest historian Ilan Pappe, The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine (2006).
Americans are a gullible and naive people. They have been complicit for 60 years in crimes that in Arnold Toynbee's words "are comparable in quality" to the crimes of Nazi Germany. As Toynbee was writing decades ago, the accumulated Israeli crimes might now be comparable also in quantity.
The US routinely vetoes United Nations condemnations of Israel for its brutal crimes against the Palestinians. Insouciant American taxpayers have been bled for a half century to provide the Israelis with superior military weapons with which Israelis assault their neighbors, all the while convincing America – essentially a captive nation – that Israel is the victim.
John F. Mahoney wrote: "Thomas Are reminds me of Dietrich Bonhoeffer: an active pastor who comes to the unsettling realization that he and his people have been fed a terrible lie that is killing and torturing thousands of innocent men, women and children. Not without ample research and prayer does such a pastor, in turn, risk unsettling his congregation. The Reverend Are has done his homework and, I suspect, has prayed often and long during the writing of this courageous book."
Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran theologian and pastor who was executed for his active participation in the German Resistance against Nazism.
Professor Benjamin M. Weir, San Francisco Theological Seminary, wrote: "This book will make the reader squirm. It asks you to lend your voice in behalf of the voiceless."
Americans who can no longer think for themselves and who are terrified of disapproval by their peer group are incapable of lending their voices to anyone except those who control the world of propaganda in which they live.
The ignorance and unconcern of Americans is a great frustration to my friends in the Israeli peace movement. Without outside support those Israelis who believe in good will are deprived, by America's support for their government's policy of violence, of any peaceful resolution of a conflict began in 1947 by Israeli aggression against unsuspecting Palestinian villages.
Rev. Are wrote his book with the hope that the pen is mightier than the sword and that facts can crowd out propaganda and create a framework for a just resolution of the Palestinian issue. In his concluding chapter, "What Christians Can Do," Rev. Are writes: "We cannot allow others to dictate our thinking on any subject, especially on anything as important as Christian faithfulness, which is tested by an attitude towards seeking justice for the oppressed. It's a Christian's duty to know."
Duty, of course, has costs. Rev. Are writes: "Speak up for the Palestinians and you will make enemies. Yet, as Christians, we must be willing to raise issues that until now we have chosen to dodge."
More than a decade later, President Jimmy Carter, a true friend of Israel, tried again to awaken Americans' moral conscience with his book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid. Carter was instantly demonized by the Israel Lobby.
Sixty years of efforts by good and humane people to hold Israel accountable have so far failed, but they are more important today than ever before. Israel has its captive American nation on the verge of attacking Iran, the consequences of which could be catastrophic for all concerned.

The alleged purpose of the attack is to eliminate nonexistent Iranian nuclear weapons. The real reason is to eliminate all support for Hamas and Hezbollah so that Israel can seize the entire West Bank and southern Lebanon. The Bush regime is eager to do Israel's bidding, and the media and evangelical "Christian" churches have been preparing the American people for the event.
It is paradoxical that Israel is demonstrating that veracity lies not in the Christian belief in good will but in Lenin's doctrine that violence is the effective force in history and that the evangelical Christian Zionist churches agree.

JDS: More on Fascism

This is a response to a discussion of one of my previous blogs, "JDS: Fascism While Standing on One Foot" taking place elsewhere:

Regarding my original post, I clearly stated (1) “Beyond a certain point, for people with certain standards and sensibilities, ‘Fascism’ ceases to be a practical political position and becomes a purist-outsider ideology of alienation, which I have come to regard more and more as a sign of integrity.” Followed by, (2) “…there is a fairly consistent value set…” And finally, (3) “This is just off the cuff, in response to an informal inquiry, and not intended to be a formal ‘academic’ outline of Fascism.”

For anyone, being serious about politics means thinking in terms of what can actually be done. Chances of there being a Fascist revolution in the USA are nil. By that I mean Fascist in the actual historical sense of the term rather than the simplistic kneejerk sense of the term applied by people on all sides of the political spectrum to any position they don’t like.

Fascism, or even National Socialism, being entirely beyond the pale of actual possibility in the USA renders them essentially irrelevant beyond the emotional lives of people who imagine themselves to be Fascists or National Socialists in America today. At that very most, Fascism or National Socialism will be an inner reference point, or an evaluational paradigm, from which action within the existing milieu might stem.

I specified FASCIST and VALUE SET because "Fascism" is a broad category only identifiable by recurring themes. The specific political programs of various so-called “Fascist” movements varied greatly according to their time and place. Most people only know Mussolini and Hitler. There were MANY Fascist parties; British Union of Fascists, Silver Shirts, Iron Wolves, Iron Guard, etc. each with their own mission statements.

It is worth noting that many figures of the American “Neo-Nazi” scene, such as George Lincoln Rockwell, Tom Metzger, and David Duke, are actually more or less constitutionalists beyond the question of Racial Nationalism. It is also interesting to note pro-Fascist writing from Ezra Pound and Racial Nationalist Revilo Oliver commenting on some of the similarities between Thomas Jefferson and Mussolini.

There is a huge difference between what I called a “value set” and an actual political agenda. I don’t know if it is available online, but look up the first program of the Fascist Movement from March 19, 1919. It reads like a combination of radical anti-government anarcho-libertarianism but with universal education and health care and a few stipulations against parasitic financial practices. Basically just a different style of mixed economy than what we have now in the USA.

On that note, regarding one of the replies above, read the blog I posted about so-called “Fascist Corporatism”: http://cosmodromium.blogspot.com/2008/05/jds-fascism-corporatism-fdr-and-lbj.html

Interestingly enough I’ve heard people as ideologically far-removed from one another as Noam Chomsky and Ron Paul misuse the term “Fascist Corporatism.”

Regarding the above comments about biological determinism and “equality” – Read up on the Genome Project and cognitive neuroscience, and complexity. Just because the matrix of biological determinism is complex beyond comprehension does not mean some transcendental free will exists. Complexity looks random, there is a difference between the real and the merely apparent.

Although Fascism is non-egalitarian, it was also against class divisions, or at least the stigma of class divisions. “Co-operation” was a keynote of Fascism and National Socialism. No one in their right mind subscribes to the chaos of ABSOLUTE autonomy. It has never existed where there was a community of more than a handful of people and never will. Some form of coordination and cooperation exists among ALL animals that exist together, whether we like it or not.

Of course “nature does not have an ideology”, I never said it did. I may have implied that an ideology is superior for being in tune with nature, not vise versa.

Regarding “collectivism” – it always cracks me up how “individual” people imagine themselves to be while at the same time they are more or less cut from a very limited set of templates. Most people define their “individuality” so-called by the most superficial outward fashion statements; taste in clothes, music, food, etc. while mentally eating from the same troughs as the rest of the piglets. There may be a wide variety of fashion statements available to identify with, but much fewer ideological sets.

For example, how many people define their identity by what they do with their genitals? How many options are there? Oral, Anal, Genital, Manual, Hetero, Homo, Human, Animal, Live, Dead…? How many variations in combination does that add up to? And that is something that doesn’t even matter.

Now consider the human mind. Where do most people around you acquire their information and opinions? The Mainstream Media. You may know a select few who are heavy readers, who might exhibit slightly more variety, but really not much.

Now turn to politics; who are you going to vote for? Liar 1 or Liar 2, working for the same masters. When your paltry little vote is averaged out with the other millions, it is literally less than a piss in the ocean.

And you people are worried about COLLECTIVISM? That ship already fucking sailed!

Look around at how pathetically people express their store-bought pre-packaged “freedom” and “individuality.” What do you really imagine would really be threatened by “collectivism”? They already conform more completely than just about anything Mussolini could dream up. At least he would make them dress better.

Wait, I think I hear the world’s smallest violin playing “Feel Like a Number” by Bob Seger.

ISRAEL AND OIL IN GEORGIA


ISRAEL AND OIL IN GEORGIA

Why Georgia? Cui Bono?

Israel proposes crude pipeline from Georgia to Eastern Asia

By Avi Bar-Eli

Tags: Israel, crude oil, Far East

Israel may be on its way to becoming a crude oil transport bridge to the Far East. The Eilat-Ashkelon Pipeline Company (EAPC) is leading an international initiative to channel crude oil from Jihan in southeast Turkey to eastern Asia, using its infrastructure in Israel. A consortium of energy firms and international shipping companies will manage the initiative, and a memorandum of understanding is expected to be signed within three months.

The oil would be pumped in Georgia and Azerbaijan, and be brought to Turkey by pipeline. From Turkey it will be shipped by tanker to Ashkelon, whence it would be transported by pipeline to Eilat. In Eilat, the oil wilbe be loaded onto a new set of tankers for transportation to eastern Asia.

The Ashkelon-Eilat Pipeline Company is a privately owned firm, owned jointly by Israel and the government of Iran. Tehran is currently not an active partner, and it and Israel are involved in international arbitration.

EAPC recently completed a trial run. A Turkish tanker of crude oil came to Ashkelon, and EAPC transported the oil to Eilat. A tanker owned by an international trading company awaited the shipment at the petroleum distillates port in Eilat, loaded the oil, and took it to an east Asian port. Loading of the tanker in Turkey, shipment to Israel and subsequent piping to Eilat was completed in about five days.

The project's entrepreneurs calculate that the savings to East Asian oil importers in time and costs generated by a regular transport line between Turkey and Israel could amount to $4 per ton, when compared with the cost of using the Suez Canal. Such a savings justifies investment in the project, as the cost of oil soars and growth rates in the developing nations of East Asia, and China and India in particular, continue to rise.

The EAPC aims to reach a final agreement on establishment of a regular transport line with leased 250,000-ton tankers ("shuttles") moving the oil between Turkey and Israel, and 280,000 to 320,000-ton tanker shuttles used to transport through the Red Sea to the east. Shipment through the Suez Canal is limited to tankers with a maximum capacity of 130,000 tons.

The initiative includes construction of a reservoir farm for storage of oil in Jihan, and infrastructure at Jihan port, in southern Turkey, for loading oil into tankers. The cost is expected to reach an estimated $200-$300 million, and the company is already in final stages of partnership negotiations with Turkish firms and an Indian energy company, for financing of the project. Simultaneously, the EAPC's board of directors has approved expansion of its reservoir farm on the Ashkelon coastline by 20%, at the cost of an estimated at $60-$80 million, to be self-financed by the company.

The company is currently able to pipe about 20 million tons of oil to Eilat annually. According to its business plan, construction of another pumping station, at a cost of $10 million, will double its capacity to 40 million tons of oil, thus generating tens of millions of dollars in additional revenues each year. The initiative was conceived with the completion of the BIC project, the 1,760-kilometer pipeline connecting Baku, Azerbaijan, on the Caspian Sea, to the Jihan port. The pipeline is now used to transport some 30 million tons of top quality "Azeri Light" crude oil annually, an amount scheduled to increase to about 50 million tons annually within the next few years.

Establishment of the pipeline will bring an increase of 20% in the amount of oil moving in the Mediterranean area, and is expected to result in lower prices, and attract the interest of Far Eastern countries eager to expand their sources.

Turkey also intends to lay another pipeline, between Samsun, on the Black Sea coast, and Jihan. According to the plan, the line will be set to transport an annual 60 million tons of crude oil to Jihan within two years, making the project even more lucrative. The Pipeline Company is currently considering participation in this $1.5-billion project as well, together with other international energy firms.

"This initiative will constitute a breakthrough for the global energy market and the fabric of international relations, which will place Israel as an intermediate country connecting Eurasia and the East, and make a strategic contribution to reducing dependence of the entire world and particularly Eastern Asian countries, on oil from the Persian Gulf," the chair of the Ashkelon-Eilat Pipeline Company, Oren Shachor, told TheMarker early this week. Shachor will present the initiative at the eighth annual Herzliya Conference of the Institute for Policy and Strategy. The conference, which takes place January 20-23, will deal with the balance of Israel's national security.

New York: It has been reported in Europe, and in Israel, that the Israel Defense Forces was intimately involved with Georgia's invasion of South Ossetia. U.S. newspapers have refused to report any of this. Is the whole Russia-Georgian conflict another sorry farce scripted by the guys you support?

Eric Margolis: Israel indeed was involved deeply in Georgia. Israeli arms dealers, Mossad agents, businessmen and technical experts came in after Saakashvili took power. Some reports in the Israeli media say Israel sold millions worth of military equipment to Georgia. You will see photos of Georgian troops wearing Israeli body army, webbing, gear and helmets, with Israeli assault rifles.

Israeli military advisors (and U.S. ones) may have been involved in planning the invasion of South Ossetia.

Many of the Israelis in Georgia are leaving. There was concern in Israel that its prominent role in Georgia would jeopardize future Israeli military sales to Russia.

Israelis also were involved in the oil pipeline across Georgia.

Israel backs Georgia in Caspian Oil Pipeline Battle with Russia

DEBKAfile Exclusive Report

August 8, 2008, 4:26 PM (GMT+02:00)

Georgian tanks and infantry, aided by Israeli military advisers, captured the capital of breakaway South Ossetia, Tskhinvali, early Friday, Aug. 8, bringing the Georgian-Russian conflict over the province to a military climax.

Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin threatened a "military response."

Former Soviet Georgia called up its military reserves after Russian warplanes bombed its new positions in the renegade province.

In Moscow's first response to the fall of Tskhinvali, president Dimitry Medvedev ordered the Russian army to prepare for a national emergency after calling the UN Security Council into emergency session early Friday.

Reinforcements were rushed to the Russian "peacekeeping force" present in the region to support the separatists.

Georgian tanks entered the capital after heavy overnight heavy aerial strikes, in which dozens of people were killed.

Lado Gurgenidze, Georgia's prime minister, said on Friday that Georgia will continue its military operation in South Ossetia until a "durable peace" is reached. "As soon as a durable peace takes hold we need to move forward with dialogue and peaceful negotiations."

DEBKAfile's geopolitical experts note that on the surface level, the Russians are backing the separatists of S. Ossetia and neighboring Abkhazia as payback for the strengthening of American influence in tiny Georgia and its 4.5 million inhabitants. However, more immediately, the conflict has been sparked by the race for control over the pipelines carrying oil and gas out of the Caspian region.

The Russians may just bear with the pro-US Georgian president Mikhail Saakashvili's ambition to bring his country into NATO. But they draw a heavy line against his plans and those of Western oil companies, including Israeli firms, to route the oil routes from Azerbaijan and the gas lines from Turkmenistan, which transit Georgia, through Turkey instead of hooking them up to Russian pipelines.

Saakashvili need only back away from this plan for Moscow to ditch the two provinces' revolt against Tbilisi. As long as he sticks to his guns, South Ossetia and Abkhazia will wage separatist wars.

DEBKAfile discloses Israel's interest in the conflict from its exclusive military sources:

Jerusalem owns a strong interest in Caspian oil and gas pipelines reach the Turkish terminal port of Ceyhan, rather than the Russian network. Intense negotiations are afoot between Israel Turkey, Georgia, Turkmenistan and Azarbaijan for pipelines to reach Turkey and thence to Israel's oil terminal at Ashkelon and on to its Red Sea port of Eilat. From there, supertankers can carry the gas and oil to the Far East through the Indian Ocean.

Aware of Moscow's sensitivity on the oil question, Israel offered Russia a stake in the project but was rejected.

Last year, the Georgian president commissioned from private Israeli security firms several hundred military advisers, estimated at up to 1,000, to train the Georgian armed forces in commando, air, sea, armored and artillery combat tactics. They also offer instruction on military intelligence and security for the central regime. Tbilisi also purchased weapons, intelligence and electronic warfare systems from Israel.

These advisers were undoubtedly deeply involved in the Georgian army's preparations to conquer the South Ossetian capital Friday.

In recent weeks, Moscow has repeatedly demanded that Jerusalem halt its military assistance to Georgia, finally threatening a crisis in bilateral relations. Israel responded by saying that the only assistance rendered Tbilisi was "defensive."

This has not gone down well in the Kremlin. Therefore, as the military crisis intensifies in South Ossetia, Moscow may be expected to punish Israel for its intervention.

Turkey faces tough task in energy as political map of Caucasus redrawn

Turkey faces a big dilemma amid the changing political landscape of the Caucasus, as it looks to strengthen its position as a transit country for energy routes, and the mounting pressure to balance its relations with Russia and the United States.

Russia's message in the five-day clashes in the Caucasus was clear: The region is still the backyard of Moscow, which is the main actor that would ensure the energy supply security for Europe.

In other words the sudden spark in the conflict that brought Georgia to its heels, reasserted Russia's claim as the dominant force in the region, and dealt a blow to the U.S. prestige.

This conflict came at a time when Turkey started sending signals that it wants to boost cooperation with its top gas supplier Russia.

It is almost certain that this incident would change the balance of power and the political landscape of the region. This change, on the other hand, has significant importance for Turkey as the officials intensified their efforts to take part in this wind of change.

KEY ENERGY TRANSIT COUNTRY

Turkey had sped up its efforts to host crucial energy routes that feed the West with pushing for new pipeline deals and inaugurating the planned ones, a policy seen by Ankara as key to promote the country's EU membership bid.

The country is seen as an alternative for Russian natural resources and a gateway of the Caspian energy sources to Europe. As Turkey does not possess rich hydrocarbon reserves of its own, almost all of these routes come from unstable countries such as Iran and Iraq. Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili's ill fated offensive on South Ossetia added Georgia into this list.

The lack of relations between Armenia and Turkey forced Ankara to push for routing the flow of oil and natural gas from Azerbaijan, through Georgia and into Anatolia.

The result has been the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) oil pipeline, which runs from the Caspian to the eastern Mediterranean and the Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum (BTE) natural gas pipeline, which runs parallel to BTC as far as eastern Anatolia.

Turkey backed four European countries on the 7.9-billion-euro Nabucco pipeline project planned to carry gas from the Caspian and Iran to Europe from 2013 to lessen Europe's dependence on Russia.

Also on the table is a project called the "Mediterranean Line", which envisages carrying fiber optic cables, water, electricity and Russian gas and oil through a multi-purpose pipeline from Turkey to Israel under a 2-5 billion euro deal.

TURKEY-RUSSIA RELATIONS IMPROVE

During the recent clashes the BP-led consortium halted the gas flow through BTE pipeline. BTC seems to have survived from the conflict as it was already closed due to an explosion that took place along its Turkish section early August.

Russia is once more within striking distance to control all the export routes for the oil and gas of the Caspian basin. In fact it was this monopoly that paved the way for the Georgia-Turkey pipeline, carrying Azeri oil from Baku to Ceyhan in Turkey.

The ability of the Georgians to protect and secure that pipeline is now clearly in question, and proposals to extend and increase the capacity of the pipeline will now have to be reconsidered.

This conflict came at a time when Turkey started signaling that it wants to boost cooperation with its top gas supplier Russia, ending a frosty period marked by differences over the Nabucco pipeline, an ambitious project aiming to bring gas from the Caspian to Europe.

Turkey gets most of its gas, 68 percent of 2008 demand of 38 billion cubic meters (bcm), from Russia's Gazprom under three long-term deals.

Turkey and Russia had a decade-long lull in economic relations after Ankara blamed Moscow for selling gas to Ankara at more expensive rates than to other buyers.

They were also at loggerheads on the Nabucco project. Russia had said any pipeline project without its gas was doomed to fail and challenged Nabucco by broaching the South Stream project, which plans a pipeline to Bulgaria and Italy from Russia via the Black Sea.

The two countries agreed to set up a joint company to run Turkey's urban gas grids as well as to build an underground gas storage facility in central Turkey and have held talks to renew a gas contract expiring in 2011.

Also Russia, Turkey and Israel agreed to work on the "Mediterranean Line" project, which could later be extended as far as India.


ENERGY POLITICS

As Turkey plays its card to increase its role as an energy transit country, the stakes are higher. Ankara now has to define a new balance for its relations with its traditional allies in the West and its emerging energy partner, Russia.

The task is becoming far more difficult given the recent international row with another regional energy player, Iran, over its nuclear program. Turkey and Iran had failed to agree on the deal to build a new pipeline as some speculate the failure was to avoid further unease with the U.S.

Turkey should develop a new strategy in the new grand chess board with longer term planning if it is to maintain the balance and not jeopardize its aim of becoming a key energy transit country.

MADAGASCAR OR AUSCHWITZ (Parts 1 and 2)

Just a note; the original copy of Freispruch fűr Deutschland by Heinrich Härtle that I passed along to Hadding Scott came from a collection of books on WWII, in German, that I acquired six or seven years ago from a combat veteran who served in a Waffen SS Panzer Division on the Eastern Front. A very impressive character who looked straight from "central casting" - steel-blue eyes, chiseled features, straight posture (for an ancient), and thick German accent. He passed away shortly thereafter. I'll try to post scans of some other pieces from this particular collection at a future date.

from Freispruch fűr Deutschland by Heinrich Härtle, 1965.

Translation by Hadding Scott (2008) serialized as bulletins on MySpace.

Until the first years of the war, a plan was being contemplated, and already prepared, which again proves strikingly that a zionist solution, rather than extermination, was being attempted: the Madagascar Project. It pops up in Nuernberg during the interrogation of the reporter for the Reich Propaganda Minististry, von Schirmeister.

"Dr. Fritz: Mr. Witness! To where were the Jews being evacuated according to the expression of Dr. Goebbels?

Von Schirmeister: Up until and perhaps including the first year of the Russian Campaign Dr. Goebbels mentioned the Madagascar Plan repeatedly in the conferences that he conducted. Later he changed that and said that a new Jewish state should be created in the east, into which the Jews would then come."

The interrogation of Ribbentrop confirms the existence of the Madagascar Plan moreover for 1942:

"Von Ribbentrop: The Fuehrer back then had the plan either to evacuate the Jews from Europe to North Africa-- There was also talk of Madagascar. He gave me an order to approach various governments and if possible to bring about the emigration of the Jews."

From: Hadding
Date: Aug 14, 2008 6:50 PM

by Heinrich Hartle (1965), translated by Hadding Scott (2008)

Madam Professor Arendt reports that in September 1939 there was a desire, similar to that in the Soviet Union*, to found an autonomous Jewish state in Poland. In September 1939, Eichmann and Dr. Stahlecker had contemplated the plan of separating a territory as large as possible in Poland, and to pronounce it an autonomous Jewish state, a protectorate. They went to Heydrich, who agreed with the plan and asked them to proceed.

The Madagascar Plan was, then, the further attempt to find a solution not essentially hostile to Zionism. Eichmann wanted "to get solid ground and soil under the feet of the Jews." The plan to evacuate 4 million Jews from Europe to the French island off the southeast coast of Africa originated in the Foreign Office and then was passed on to the RSHA.** Eichmann always maintained that his plan already had been dreamed before by the Jewish pioneer of the Jewish state idea, Theodor Herzl.

This dream was certainly dreamed not only by Herzl, but also by the Polish Government, which in the year 1937 established a commission to examine whether it might not be possible to freight the 3 million Polish Jews off to Madagascar.

Even Georges Bonnet, the French Foreign Minister, contemplated the project of shoving off France's roughly 200,000 foreign Jews into the French colonies; he conferred about this project with his German colleague Ribbentrop in 1938.
Hannah Arendt summarizes:

"In any case, in summer 1940, as his emigration project had come to a complete standstill, Eichmann was advised to work out a detailed plan for the evacuation of four million Jews to Madagascar, and until the beginning of the campaign against Russia this project seems to have claimed the majority of his time."

Madam Professor Arendt, who in various passages is unable to resist tendentious applications of collective guilt to the German People, naturally detects that the Madagascar Project destroys the laboriously construed "Plan of Annihilation." Later therefore she wished to portray it as a "camouflage of extermination." For what purpose such a camouflage should have been necessary and important, she is not able convincingly to explain. Ultimately her witness Eichmann refutes her delusion, since he, who always frankly admitted his transgression, affirms to the end that that the Madagascar Plan was readied by the competent agencies and had to be abandoned only with the broadening of the war.

An interesting argument of this otherwise so clever authoress, is that the transport of millions of Jews back then would have been infeasible because England's fleet ruled the Atlantic.
Does she mean thereby to say that the English Government by military might had prevented the salvation of millions of Jews?

With that she merely proves in her manner that war and the Jewish Problem were inseparably chained to each other. If the German peace offers, to England and France after the Polish War and to England after the victory over France, had been accepted, all political and military prerequisites in regard to France, to whose empire Madagascar belonged, would have been secured for solving the Jewish problem through this project without loss of human life.

After the entry of America and the Soviet Union into the war it was too late. On the 5th of May 1942 the English occupied Madagascar, in a surprise attack without regard for France.

Victim Wars! Afro-Israeli vs. Crybaby Jewish Kid



The actual weeping starts at about 8:15.

What amuses me the most is that about the only personal connection either of them have to Slavery or the Holocaust is what their respective cults have told them, supplemented by material from bookstores and libraries, and possibly a museum visit.

The degree to which people will go to wallow in their hypothetical privileged victim status is astounding.

It would have been fun to toss each of them a penny and say "My American ancestors owned your ancestors, and my German ancestors sent yours to the camps. Here's your fucking reparations."

If they get to make ancestral claims as the privileged victims, I get to make mine as the heartless perpetrator. Our degrees of seperation from the original events are about the same.

I can just barely hear the world's smallest violin playing..... oops I just stepped on it!

Martin Heidegger Denouncing "Postmodern Philosophy" Before It Was Born....

"We still have scholars today who busy themselves with philosophy and who consider freedom-from-every-standpoint not to be a standpoint, as though such freedom did not depend upon those very standpoints. These curious attempts to flee from one's own shadow we may leave to themselves, since discussion of them yields no tangible results. Yet we must heed one thing: this standpoint of freedom-from-standpoints is of the opinion that it has overcome the one-sidedness and bias of prior philosophy, which always was, and is, defined by its standpoints. However, the standpoint of standpointlessness represents no overcoming. In truth it is the extreme consequence, affirmation, and final stage of that opinion concerning philosophy which locates all philosophy extrinsically in standpoints that are ultimately right in front of us, standpoints whose one-sidedness we can try to bring into equilibrium. We do not alleviate the ostensible damage and danger which we fear in the fact that philosopohy is located in a particular place--such location being the essential and indispenable legacy of every philosopohy--by denying and repudiating the fact; we alleviate the danger only by thinking through and grasping the indigenous character of philosophy in terms of its original essence and its necessity, that is to say, by posing anew the question concerning the essence of truth and the essence of human Dasein, and by elaborating a radically new response to that question."
-- Martin Heidegger, Nietzsche, Volume II, p. 118.

Charles Manson: "A Way of Life"

"A Way of Life" is a special message from Manson to all. October 2007.

A WAY OF LIFE

A way of life, and the people who fight for a way of life (and the order of, and in),

that kills germs, bugs, birds, cows and pigs, and feeds on Life, is at war with Nature

and has no ATWA in its' soul ; and is running as fast as it can to death, and is at war

with its' own life.

You can thank the North and South Wars, that divided this country and the world,

for control over the Money-Gods of Rome and the Churches of Deceit.


Signed……Straight Satan

Charles Manson
