Does Honoring Veterans Perpetuate War?

November 10, 2017

Tomorrow, Nov. 11, is Veteran's Day in the US and 
Remembrance Day in Canada 

Cabalist (Masonic) central bankers follow a long-term 
plan to degrade and enslave humanity. This is what Communism is really about. They finance both sides of every war to kill the goyim, make money and extend their tyranny.  Are we complicit in our own destruction by legitimizing this evil ruse?




My annual Veteran's Day piece -- War is a tragic hoax

Wars are the closest thing to hell on earth. What do you expect? They are devised by Satanists. Why do we accept them as natural and inevitable? Why do we perpetuate the myth that veterans were "defending our freedom" when in fact wars are designed to deprive us of freedom? 

In the Red Symphony, Illuminati Jewish insider Christian Rakovski stated "Wars are revolutionary"

"Revolution" really means, "overturning" Western civilization. Replacing God with Lucifer. "Christianity is our only real enemy since all the political and economic phenomena of the bourgeois states are only its consequences," Rakovsky, says. 

Peace is "counter-revolutionary" since it is war that paves the way for revolution. Revolution really means, overturning Western civilization. Thus, war is a self-destructive enterprise contrived by folks who want to degrade and enslave us.



By Henry Makow Ph.D.


When the United States and England loaned Mexico money in 1903 using its customs revenue as collateral, Illuminati banker Jacob Schiff cabled his English counterpart, Ernest Cassel: "If they don't pay, who will collect the customs?"

Cassel replied:  "Your marines and ours."   (The Life of Otto Kahn, p. 22)

Marine General Smedley Butler (1881-1940) confirmed that he was "a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers."

In War is a Racket (1935) he wrote: "I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China, I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested."

Flash forward to 2011 when NATO fomented and led a mission in Libya one of only four countries that didn't have a Rothschild central bank. Now Libya does. They don't call it imperialism anymore. They call it "Our mission in Libya." Soldiers aren't mercenaries; they are "missionaries."  Now they're after Syria, North Korea, and Iran, three of the four remaining countries without a Rothschild central bank

CENTRAL BANKERS ARE BEHIND ALL WARS

All wars are organized by the Illuminati bankers to collect or incur debt, kill goyim, plunder or profit, and to advance their program for Masonic Jewish "world government" tyranny. They appeal to our patriotism to sucker us in. We are told we are fighting to "preserve freedom" when the opposite is actually the case.

memorial_day.jpgSo how should we regard veterans? Certainly, a few are heroes, but usually in a bogus cause.

I think we have to regard them as dupes and mercenaries. We have all been duped for a very long time. That gives Veteran's Day a taint of pathos and cynicism.

WORLD WAR TWO


On Nov 11, we are mostly commemorating World War Two. While we were losing fathers and sons, Allied and Nazi central bankers were sitting shoulder to shoulder in Basel at the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) mainly financing the Nazis.

The BIS handed the Nazis the national treasure of Czechoslovakia, Holland, and Belgium to ensure the war could go on.
This gold, worth $378 million at the time, was the basis of loans to the Nazis and was never returned.

The BIS accepted and stored Nazi plunder -- art, diamonds and precious metals including dental gold and wedding ring from concentration camp inmates. 

The US Federal Reserve, the Banks of England, France, Italy, Japan and the Reichsbank were all members of the BIS. The Nazi Reichsbank had most seats but the BIS President was a Rockefeller factotum
Thomas H. McKittrick (1889-1970). (Significantly he has no Wikipedia entry.)


"CHANGING THE WORLD"  MEANS HAVING A WORLD WAR
 

mckittrick,jpg.jpg(Thomas McKittrick, left)

Questioned by a US Treasury Dept official in March 1945, McKittrick said that the war had been a charade all along, with Germany taking the fall.

Asked why the BIS worked with the Nazis, he replied, "In the complicated German financial setup, certain men who have their central bankers' point of view, are in very strategic positions and can influence the conduct of the German government..."


Then he spelled it out, albeit in a euphemism. The war's purpose was to reposition Germany in the banker New World Order:


"McKittrick went on to say that there was a little group of financiers who had felt from the beginning that Germany would lose the war; that after defeat they might emerge to shape Germany's destiny. That they would "maintain their contacts and trust with other important banking elements so that they would be in a stronger position in the postwar world to negotiate loans for the reconstruction of Germany."

This quotation is from Charles Higham's mind-blowing book,
Trading With the Enemy, 1983, p. 37. (See excerpts here) 

These bankers controlled a Who's Who of corporations which had factories in occupied Europe that underpinned the Nazi war effort and profited handsomely. 

Ford, General Motors, Standard Oil and ITT provided the Nazis with essential trucks, airplane engines, materiel, and technology, often giving the Nazis preference during shortages.  In a telling example, the Allies bombed a ball bearing plant in Germany only to have the stock replaced by a factory in Pennsylvania (via Sweden.)

Higham refers to these bankers as "the fraternity." They are the Illuminati.

An earlier set of bankers masterminded World War One and kept it going. But you get the picture. All wars are really waged by the Luciferian central bankers against humanity, i.e "the goyim." 

In 1916, almost 1.2 million British, French and German soldiers died or were maimed in the Battle of the Somme alone.
They were the cream of their generation. The British national debt multiplied tenfold.

By participating in any war, we are accomplices in our own destruction. 

The military is catching on too. A recent poll found that only 34 percent of U.S. veterans of the post-9/11 military believed that the Iraq and Afghanistan wars were worth fighting. US soldiers now generally say they are fighting "for their buddies" not for their country. 

kiss.jpg(left.  Henry Kissinger said, "Military men are "dumb, stupid animals to be used.")

CONCLUSION

We cannot honor veterans without recognizing that, like us, they have been duped. Otherwise, we perpetuate the sinister power which holds us prisoner.

Ultimately, the New World Order is about replacing the rule of God with the rule of Lucifer. That's why "God" has become a dirty word. War is the principal means by which Lucifer's disciples, the Cabalist (satanist) central bankers, "change the world."

They have erected a police state behind the facade of freedom. We don't know this because our leaders in government, education and media are witting or unwitting participants. Treason to God and country is a prerequisite for success in many fields.

If honoring veterans means perpetuating a cycle of endless war, we must stop. Better to honor the dead by abolishing wars. We can do this by nationalizing private central banks, and making the bankers answer for their crimes.

First Comment from Lance:

I'm a Vietnam veteran, and was neither a mercenary nor a dupe. Like most, I was drafted and coerced into service. And the pay, beginning at $75 per month, while in training, was hardly at a mercenary's rate. No, you can't say I was in it for the money, either.


SECOND COMMENT FROM TWH:

As a former soldier myself, even I cringe when I hear people thanking soldiers for their "service"  People wax maudlin over our "heroes" in uniform who are somehow "defending our freedom".

Let me tell you a little secret.  Most people join the military because it's a job, not because they have noble visions of getting killed on some battlefield.  
When I was in the army a few decades ago, we would go through training exercises and we would drink.  That amounted to about all we did.  I was certainly no hero, nor was I defending our freedom or providing a sacred service to Canadians.

If I knew what I know today, I wouldn't have even considered signing up back then.  I was young and naive.  The only way I would muse about joining the military today is if Canada itself were under attack.  I'm not going to be fooled into putting combat boots on so that I can fight a battle on the other side of the globe on behalf on the international moneylenders.




KEN ADACHI Writes:

 In the 1950s, 60s, 70s, and 80s, a certain percentage of young American men from blue collar families would typically join some branch of the US military to gain employment, free medical and dental care, free meals and housing, technical training, perhaps some college, and above all, have an adventure and see the world. 

No one of those decades had any inkling of what the Pentagon was really about and just how rotten are the scoundrels and liars of Washington DC who connive with their pals in banking and the military-industrial complex to create the pretext and excuses to wage war against innocent people in far away lands, so said scoundrels can generate obscene amounts of profit and booty for themselves, and all at taxpayer expense. 

Following the treachery leveled against US service men in the first Gulf war (1991) by its own government in which hundreds of thousands of men and women were subjected to vaccinations that caused the intentionally introduced, lab created "Gulf War syndrome (or illness)", you would think that far more young people would think twice about joining a Pentagon killing machine that had all the earmarks of satanic stewardship. 

After the traitors in our military and government, working with the Mossad, orchestrated the events of 9/11, they send US military personnel into Iraq and Afghanistan to engage in such depraved levels of barbarity, cruelty, and murderous savagery (mostly against civilians), that for the first time in the history of the United States, we have scores and scores of returning military men committing suicide because they can no longer take the mental torment that their conscience has forced upon them for their unconscionable conduct in the Middle East.

The only way you can stop this process is to stop cooperating with it and that means to stop enlisting in the military and subject yourself to the Pentagon's sorcerers (and I mean that literally). In 2005, all the signs were in place for the calling of a draft, but ultimately they decided to not follow through because the war in Iraq, I think, was beginning to lose popular support and the institution of a draft would lead to anti-war protests on campuses across the country and that in turn would lead to an eventual pullout of US troops in the Middle East (as in Vietnam). 

So they start sucking up recruits from Mexico, Central America, South America and the Philippines to fill American military boots and make up the shortfall with promises of a fast track to US citzenship and other financial perks and incentives (at taxpayer expense, of course). In earlier decades, you could believe the party line that we were the Good Guys of the world and that our mission was to 'maintain the peace' and 'provide stability', and all the flag-waving crap that they throw at naive, inexperienced, and trusting young minds. But today there is no excuse.

 With the internet, anyone can find out exactly who and what the Pentagon is and understand the price you will pay if you foolishly decide to join that killing machine. You can't blame the veterans of earlier decades because we thought we were doing the right thing and assumed that the military was on the up and up. But today, everyone should know the score and we should do nothing to encourage or enable that killing enterprise-including celebrating its 'commemorative' rituals


 

 






Comments for "Does Honoring Veterans Perpetuate War?"

JV said (November 12, 2017):

I am a retired veteran. I hardly take comments from veterans who served only four-years or less seriously. Why? They fulfilled their obligated contract and got out because they had enough. They already decided long before their contract ended. If they really sacrificed their mind and body, then they would stay in and become a “Careerist”; an official label termed for people who sign on beyond four-years. Most don’t retire, and some stay on and retire. The more they re-enlist the more they understand the sacrifices. They also gain more experience in life as a Soldier, Marine, Sailor, Airmen.

An analogy I can use is a McDonald’s cashier. If he/she worked for only three months, then they would never progress to supervisor, store manager, district manager, and so on. They would never know the experience of struggles and progress. The struggles, sacrifice, progress, and experience in the military are my reasons for celebrating Veterans Day. I am a Veteran, and I won’t deny it. Yes, the Illuminati and their idiot minions infiltrated the military, and I will have no sympathy for them when they have the courage to show themselves. Also, thanks for your work Henry.


Jeremy C said (November 11, 2017):

I was a young man with limited options for an exciting career...like most young men in our increasingly emasculated society.

I played the game and went through the infantry experience. I suffered some and worked with different nationalities’ young men and observed a few things. I saw some war zones and effects of war and went on safari under the United Nations. I didn’t see any combat at the time but guys that I served with that stayed in eventually went to active war zones in the former Yugoslavia and a few even stayed in long enough to participate in the War on Terror in Afghanistan.

I left the military at a young age with my health and sanity more or less intact. It was like leaving a cult though and I felt profoundly bewildered by civilian society and like I had committed suicide by leaving my identity as a soldier behind. It was an adjustment.

For those that stayed in the military longer the adjustment is a lot harder and most don’t make it. They hang on to their identity of soldier for the rest of their lives. Like the old recruiting slogan said, “ There is no life like it”.

I realize now that War inc. is for suckers and that we are all dupes. Remembrance Day is a big part of the lies. It’s more about indoctrinating kids than honouring the war dead.

I imagine that the souls of the billions of war dead cry out each Remembrance Day wishing we would wake up. For the dead soldiers, their young lives are sacrificed for lies so that bankers and their chickenhawk minions can keep their control racket going and they have no intention of ever sharing anything with the victims of war. The victims of war are not just the soldiers that die but overwhelmingly they are the civilians - the men, women and wee little children in poor countries that have resources that corporations want for themselves.

Rich Western nation soldiers that aren’t killed in war but actually see combat zones (most don’t) are often guilt-ridden and taught to try to pave over the guilt of what they participated in with booze, drugs, violence, bravado, and layers upon layers of bullshit. Remembrance Day for them is one of those layers. They get to put on their uniforms and medals and get drunk at the Legion and get thanked for their service by the clueless special snowflakes that our society is turning out in droves.

Tim Horton’s now commemorates our brave men with a Remembrance Day doughnut (note that I don’t say women because very few women ever see combat and the ones that do are given special protection by the men -just another feminist lie).

Anyway, the whole thing makes me sick and angry. You go to these public Remembrance Day ceremonies and the feminists and supercucks run the show in Canada and dishonour the fallen by claiming WW2 was fought for women’s rights against tyranny and all that. Meanwhile we ignore that bankers collaborated so much with fascism and the whole WW2 history is contrived and was for rich banker boys that will never see a war zone. I doubt any of the WW2 war dead would be impressed to learn that they fought and died so that their great grandchildren can celebrate LGBT takeover and invite ISIS to come implement sharia law in Canada within the next few years.

Most of the men that died were white Christians and so if they hadn’t been killed and were alive today they wouldn’t be honoured but would be ignored as being archaic instruments of white privileged power.


Eric B said (November 11, 2017):

As I believe I may have mentioned to you before, this current Putin is not the original. The latter was killed some years back. I believe the reason for this is that he was TOO nationalistic and TOO anti-west. The current one is more moderate and appears more refined. There are distinct facial differences between the Putin of 10 years ago and the current one as well.


B- A Polish View said (November 11, 2017):

"By participating in any war, we are accomplices in our own destruction. "

I beg to disagree. Although it's true perhaps, from the perspective of a US or Canadian citizen, that it is BS that your (our ours, for that matter) "veterans were "defending our freedom" (in Afghanistan and Iraq), but I certainly cannot agree with the above statement. It holds true for countries like US or Canada who had never been (in their recent history, anyway) invaded by a foreign country, but in WW2-era Poland we literally fought for our biological survival as an ethnos, since the invador had extermination in store for more than 80% of us, as per Generalplan Ost, and they pretty much succeeded (22% of pre-war population perished).
So that statement has to be qualified by adding:
"By participating in any war of aggression, we are accomplices in our own destruction."
It's not a immoral to defend your own country against a foreign invasion, especially if the agressor deemed you slated for eradication.
Tomorrow we have a national independence day in Poland. We are commemorating (as many European countries on that day) the revival of the Polish state after WWI (and 123 years of national captivity, after Poland was wiped off the map of Europe, having been Partitioned among 3 great then-superpowers). You can expect huge patriotic rallies and countless crowds on the streets of the biggest cities, as well as provocations (with great probability bordering on certainty) by the (globalist-sponsored) provocations decrying Poland's supposed 'virulent nationalism', etc.

I love Poland, its Christianity, and Nationalism but given how much it has suffered from war, I am surprised Poles have any more appetite for it.,

DAVID C said (November 10, 2017):

Remembrance Day is also known as Poppy Day, Armistice Day, and Veterans Day in the USA. This ritual takes place in the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month and consists of everyone stopping what they are doing at 11 am on the 11th day of the 11th month (11+11+11 = 33), and staying silent for two minutes...

I wonder if George Orwell's "two minutes hate" was derived from this annual ritual, which deceives citizens into pretending military forces are brave heroes protecting us from the "enemy". The real enemy controls all military forces of the world through controlling governments. Any government that doesn't take its "advisors" advice, doesn't last very long. Humanity must realize we are all one human race, with one common enemy - the enemy within.


RL said (November 10, 2017):

Bravo Andy Sloan from one True Roman Catholic to another this one a Pole , yes Putin ! Trump ! And All the countries controlled by the luciferians your days are numbered , Hell is a big place with many levels and the real truth is your leader will be waiting for you , your reward will be nasty for ever.


JG said (November 10, 2017):

No, honoring vets does not perpetuate war.

What does perpetuate war is false propaganda that is authored by the foreign banking cartels and then peddled by the MSM to the public.

When Wilson told his new bankster bosses that the American public was not in favor of war they told him not to worry because they would take care of public opinion. And, they sure did. WW1 was then promoted as the "war to end all wars".

How insane to go to war to end war.

WW1 was a prelude to WW2 which claimed even more White Christian lives. Add the millions of White Christian lives lost in Russia during the Communist takeover which was financed by these same bankers and you have a genocide.

The White Christian population of all these nations was the one who war was really declared on. They successfully got them to war against each other.
One more time, let us go to the Civil War. It was White Christians again fighting White Christians. How many millions of lives were lost then? Was this really a "good war" also?

I'm a veteran and I honor our veterans and the flag. They didn't start the wars and they unselfishly sacrificed their lives believing that they were doing the right thing.
For some reason you always seem to remember the people you served with.


James C said (November 10, 2017):

Henry, this is probably the most important article you have ever written; it is unbelievably significant. The Jews spent 1626 years in ancient Mesopotamia, also known as Babylonia (586 B.C. to 1040 A.D.), an area that Revelation 17:5 describes as the matrix, or the mother, of every filthy and obscene practice known to humanity. This is undoubtedly where they learned the demonic money games their dynastic banking families have always practiced.

Usury, war finance, and dynastic banking families originated in ancient Babylon. In their book Nebuchadnezzar, the authors G. R. Tabouis and Gabriel Hanotaux described the temple of the sun god Shamash [i.e., Baal] at Sippar in Babylonia as "the oldest financial establishment in the world" (p. 235). Shamash, the sun god, was "the god of merchants, and bankers" (Ibid.). The temple of the sun god Shamash practised the same financial imperialism that we have seen in our own time, LOANING MONEY TO BOTH SIDES OF A WAR (p. 233). "In Sippar lay the surest, most stable foundation of the power of Chaldea.... [While] governments and empires destroyed each other and took each other's place to claim the benefit of it. Financiers and men of business alone, profiting by wars and revolutions and caring for national, social, and moral aspirations only to exploit them, increased their privileges with their influence" (p. 251, emphasis added).


Elaine said (May 29, 2017):

Wars are not honorable, especially when the bankers are the people who start and support both sides of those wars. The military is honorable, not those who are hell bent on achieving some kind of domination over another country for purposes of empire expanding and controlling the world. That is never honorable. I'm married to a military man who devoted 30 years to the military. Knowing what I know now, I reject the wars of empire and expansion solely for placing a "puppet in control" that will follow the directions of those whose sole purpose in life is to control other nations and their resources. I do believe it is past time to call a spade a spade. Everyone requires a re-think about the military and it's purposes. Right now, I don't see those purposes as being necessary to the protection of the U.S.


Larry C said (May 29, 2017):

Henry, you wisely say, "They appeal to our patriotism to sucker us in."

Like the Protocols state, it's nothing but national vanity. Emma Goldman elaborates:

"Conceit, arrogance and egotism are the essentials of patriotism.... Patriotism assumes that our globe is divided into little spots, each one surrounded by an iron gate. Those who had the fortune of being born on some particular spot, consider themselves better, nobler, grander, more intelligent than the living beings inhabiting any other spot. It is, therefore, the duty of everyone living on that chosen spot to fight, kill, and die in the attempt to impose his superiority upon all others."-- Socialist and feminist Emma Goldman lecturing on patriotism

Aldous Huxley clarifies:

"One of the great attractions of patriotism -- it fulfills our worst wishes. In the person of our nation we are able, vicariously, to bully and cheat. Bully and cheat, what's more, with a feeling that we are profoundly virtuous."-- Aldous Huxley, English author, 1894-1963

This is especially true of right wing Masons. It makes me sick.


Laurence C said (May 29, 2017):

War is certainly a racket, but don’t tell that to so called patriotic Brits especially on the auspicious 11/11/ 11 Remembrance Day. ( 11th hour, 11th day, 11th month shows all the hallmarks of Freemasonic 33 Satanism ) My father, had just made the Dunkirk escape and was stationed in Southern England. A German Heinkel bomber had been shot down and the troops from the nearby garrison, including my father quickly rushed to the scene to detain the crew who had bailed out and inspect the wreckage. One of the soldiers salvaged the avometer……. A prize indeed…….and when he polished the glass with his handkerchief, it revealed its origin and maker……….Smiths Made in England!!!!

Your article explains exactly why this would be the case.
Smedley Butler was so right about war being a racket.

BTW any attempts I have made to point out that we were trading with the nazis so that they could kill us with our exports, have always fallen on deaf ears. A very long road ahead to enlighten folks here, if ever, as the programming apparatus is firmly entrenched as are the many distraction processes in everyday life. Only the Second Coming will herald the rescue process, in my Christian opinion.

Thanks for all your articles Henry. Look forward to reading them, avidly.


Karl said (May 29, 2017):

Great piece, but that '1st Comment' from Lance is a joke. He was a dupe and stooge who's now trying to justify his cowardly ways. I deliberately gave up my student deferment, stood for the Draft, refused induction in a very noisy way, was sent to a max prison and have since devoted my life to standing up instead of making cowardly excuses for a pathetic existence.

Despite the absence of an Internet, there was no lack of information about what America was doing in Vietnam and why. Most took the easy way by trying to slink out of military service or by going and trying to hang out for a year of duty before coming back to the States.

I'm sick of watching cowards justify their service to Jews through worship of the military, especially at sporting events. I could go on, but I think you get the point


Dan A said (May 29, 2017):

30 years ago I was in the military. I was a medic with the navy for 2 years and the marine corps for two years. I served during peace time, so I never experienced combat thankfully.

While I served I was faithful to my country largely due to ignorance. An ignorance shared with most I served with then in the military.

I did not know the story about Marine General Smedley Butler then. Now I consider the general a great contributor with sharing the truth with so many others. He has a base named after him in Okinawa, Japan.

From what I read, I believe my country may be the warrior element of the new world order. I'm greatly opposed to the actions of my country against so many others, often innocent civilians.

Trump I think is acting according to the directions the elite give him, as with other past presidents of my country.

I'm very pleased with what the veterans administration has given me and offered me because I am a veteran. I have great respect for those veterans who have experienced combat, as I treated them often as a medic. I also have great respect for those who do help veterans in various ways.

But instead of celebrating veterans, my country instead needs to attempt to fix and correct the brutal behavior my country demonstrates often. At least make more aware of the actions of my country,


LC said (May 30, 2016):

Just want to add my voice to the chorus of thanks for this wonderful article on re-thinking Memorial Day. I have long thought along the same lines and find it sadly ironic that such observances and national holidays idealize and perpetuate the sacrifice of our best and brightest for the bankers and The Illuminati's NWO, rather than fostering a needed examination of the root causes of these conflicts which you have so vividly outlined in numerous articles.


James C said (May 30, 2016):

World War II was a war fought to make the world safe for Communism. If you want to see the pure evil that resulted from that war, read the book Hellstorm: The Death of Nazi Germany, 1944-1947. It's an excellent antidote to the 70+ years of the one-sided anti-German propaganda we've all been subjected to. The Allies committed unspeakable, unimaginable atrocities against the Germans, who were actually fighting Communism. If you can get through this book without shedding a tear, you're not human.


Doug P said (May 30, 2016):

I've been saying this for years. When the kids are out selling their poppies I always tell them these wars are being fought for the banks. I type in "war bank" in youtube, youtube comes back with a suggestion "banker war" at the top of the list and this comes up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hfEBupAeo4 "All Wars Are Banker Wars".


Barbara W said (May 29, 2016):

Henry, you are right to try to awaken us all to the sinister agenda behind wars, and courageous to do so; however, I think it is deeply unjust to give veterans insulting labels, which I shall not dignify by repeating. These were our grandfathers, sons, husbands, sweethearts, friends and relations, people dear to us, people we loved, who truly believed that their sacrifice was necessary, who were ready to lay their lives on the line to protect and defend their people and their nation. They walked out on patrol day after day, night after night, knowing that each step might be their last, from bullets or bombs hidden beneath their feet. They marched laden like pack animals, mile after weary mile, stumbling across unfamiliar terrain. They drove out in flimsy vehicles designed by traitors to offer little protection, easy targets for dismemberment. If they survived, they often came back home deeply scarred in mind and body, only to suffer further torment by sadistic doctors pumping them full of drugs or MK Ultra mind control tortures, unable to describe all that they had witnessed to their loved ones, who found it hard to understand them, struggling to begin life together anew.

I honour them from the depths of my heart, and I will always honour them. Thank you, brave souls, valiant warriors all.

Onward Goyim Soldiers..

I greatly appreciated you Memorial Day article today. I reminded me of how Mothers Day began as Mothers Day for Peace with Julia Ward Howe and somehow was co-opted into a waffle morning and chocolate-dipped strawberries and a card.

You cited Charles Hingham. I gave him my copy of "Merchants of Death: A Study of the International Armaments Industry" by H.C. Englebrecht and Frank Hanighen, through a family friend of his, historian/actress Jane Singer ( http://www.janesinger.com/about/ )

Your article today also reminded me of Robert Anton Wilson’s Cosmic Trigger II… It’s got a lot of references to the pacifists of the 19th and early 20th centuries…. people like Lysander Spooner. Many leads to good source material. Thanks again for what you do.

Glen said (May 29, 2016):

My how the powers that shouldn't be have wised up. They figured out the only way to keep the eternal war going with little or no resistance was to eliminate the draft. That way those of the chosen or upper class would never have to worry about fighting and dying in their daddies wars. All "dogs of war" would be drawn from a rapidly sinking middle class and the always abundant lower class. They figured all they had to do was assure enough young men(and now women)had absolutely no future in their home town or the entire country and they would have all the enlisted men they needed. The best any young person could hope for right out of high school was a job in fast food. Not much of a career choice. Hence the only choice left was the military. The PTSB also learned that it is dangerous and foolish to pit even crazy radicles against the military. It was far better to have everyone praise and honor these who "serve" as the saviors of not only us but the whole "democratic world". So we now have those with no hope other than a career in the military carrying the water for the monopoly capitalist. Charlie Daniels say's "a rich man goes to college and a poor boy goes to work". I say a rich man goes to college and a poor boy goes to war. These assholes who run the world have got this never ending war shit down to a science. I just pray there is a special place in Hell for them.

This one's for all those who have fought and died in the bankers wars, especially the Vietnam vets, people I knew and loved.

One of the things that all of us have to remember and strive to avoid is dependence on the government in any way, shape or form. Most of us will immediately say, "Well, at least I'm not on welfare." But what about pension plans, free medical services and free schooling? And what about the army?

The army seems to be a very noble cause. Do you know what is more noble and actually harder to do? Work in private enterprise and refuse to exercise your rights. Believe me, that is very hard to do because that means you have to build relationships that are based on a firm foundation. As much as I admire veterans, I have to say this that when I'm working with retired veterans in private enterprise - they're are close to being useless! Why? Because they have this attitude just like welfare bums that the world owes them something! And it's not only me who feels this way. I lived near a town that was next to an army base and the business people of that town, I was told, tried their hardest not to hire anyone from the base or who had worked at the base. They were very difficult people to work with.


Dan A said (May 29, 2016):

I'm a veteran. In the 1980s I was a medic with the Navy and Marine Corps. And when I did serve, at that age I was ignorant enough to serve faithfully during that time- not aware at that time about how corrupt my country really is.

With General Butler, there is a camp Butler named after him in Okinawa, Japan. Sadly most marines I served with there were totally unaware of the impact General Butler really had on the reality of war and the military in the United States.

I have a brother who has been in the Navy for over 30 years. He is retiring this summer. And he will never accept the true role of the military in the United States.


H said (May 25, 2015):

At the end of your article today, regarding Memorial Day, you have a link to one of your articles "World War One - First Christian Holocaust ..."

Along holocaust lines, I think the Third World War that started on 9-11, should be called "Muslim Holocaust", planned by Pike et. al. In 1870's. That's what it is.


Daniel said (May 25, 2015):

LET'S TAKE A POLL TODAY: I am classified as a Vietnam Vet serving in the US Navy (7.14.1960 - 7.14.1964) stationed stateside. As I think of Memorial Day I wonder if I lived in 1941 (the beginning of WWII for America) and knew what America would become 70 years later because of betrayal of powerful forces, political leaders, the apathy of it's people, and what is now happening in America and around the world, would I sacrifice my life for a freedom that was doomed to die? For this pole there are only three answers: (1) YES (2) NO (3) This poll question disturbs me because I am having great difficulty deciding what my answer might have been.

Andrew said (November 12, 2014):

If all the wars of America and Canada over the last 100 years have been needless, then celebrating these stupid and wasteful extravaganzas of death and destruction is sheer folly. Of course, how do we circumvent the standard SUPPORT OUR TROOPS mind trick? We simply distinguish between our fine service people and the wasteful wars which murder and maim them. Increasingly our servicemen are sorely abused by our fascist military establishment. Notice how advertisers use models sporting prosthetic limbs as those this is cool and a mark of valor instead of the abuse it represents.

One of the strangest phenomenon are the attitudes of veterans themselves who serve in these needless wars. They always become the strongest supporters of these shameful events. This is not an easy question, yet this year Henry formulated an effective anti-venom of sorts. I know I referred proudly to a few friends. That may be why hit meter jumped.


Bruce said (November 11, 2014):

While I greatly admire the bravery of anyone who went to war, I do think that it took more courage for those few people who tried to warn us that war was not the best way to make this world a better place. That it was wrong to try kill the sons and daughters, parents, wives and children of those whom we have had a “quarrel” .

Particularly when war meant destroying cities and towns of our enemies and now forever polluting them with depleted uranium, agent orange, and our driving the people off their land like so many ground hogs and robbing them of their land as we did in East Prussia after WW2 and much of Germany after WW1. The scorn and abuse heaped upon these brave people who were against war was something that very few could fight against and very few had the courage to try to do so.


We failed to listen to those few who warned us that no war has ever made this world a better place, and we even jailed those who told us so. Even the heart break of the deaths hundreds of Canadians every day during some of the battles of World War 1, the hideous destruction of much of Europe, particularly Russia and almost all of Germany, and the atomic bombing Japan , nor the bombing of London during WW2 , nor all the wars from Afghanistan to Yugoslavia and now Syria, the Ukraine and soon to be Iran have not been enough to bring the world to its senses: that war does not work.. Hundreds of millions have been killed by war after WW2 and the killing is still going on. When will we ever learn that peace cannot be created by war?


Leonard said (November 11, 2014):

As unpopular as it is to admit this Henry, esp. Here in Amerika where war is a major industry and a religion, you are right. Our soldiers are dupes. Hollywood romanticizes the warrior and the churches hold special services to honor them. Washington creates the financial necessity to get young people to "volunteer". The Amerikan people are the most naive people in the world. They never question. They worship Molech and don't even know it. They proudly offer their sons and daughters on his blasphemous altar over and over again.


Marco said (November 11, 2014):

I think a quote by the last surviving soldier of the WW1 trenches sums up what war really is,

"I felt then, as I feel now, that the politicians who took us to war should have been given the guns and told to settle their differences themselves, instead of organizing nothing better than legalized mass murder.

War is organized murder, and nothing else."
-Harry Patch


Paul S said (November 11, 2014):

I agree that Veteran's Day requires a rethink.

The following is an interesting video that documents just what the U.S. military is really up to in Iraq.

JG said (November 10, 2014):

Henry, name me just one citizen in the "free world" that did not enjoy or had any guilt connected with the spoils from WW2 that brought an unprecedented prosperity to those nations such as the US, France, and England.

We too often take the "moral high ground" against our veterans but at the same time we are first in line to reap the spoils.

To show sympathy and honor to our veterans makes us feel complicit with their war atrocities. But, a strong dollar and cheap oil prices that were derived from these wars they have no problem associating themselves with.

As long as we're not the one's who pulled the trigger we remain righteous in our "self delusion" and still believe that this is the reason for our personal worldly prosperity.


Mohommed from SA said (November 10, 2014):

one of the things that piss me off:
when i read comments by readers about any article where a US or other western soldier has been killed. they talk about these soldiers as being brave men & women who served their country etc
why cant people admmit that their sons & daughters were desperate for a job &
with unemployment so high, they saw the military as a way out?

what's so brave about going halfway round the world to kill innocent people?
this is the thinking that allows people like Kissinger to say: "Military men
are "dumb, stupid animals to be used."

these soldiers are just being used to do the dirty work of the intl banking
gangsters and it does not help that most of the families of these soldiers
keep on drinking the orange juice served by mainstream media.
maybe they know the truth, but it hurts & they are too cowardly to admit the
reality of the situation.

and then u get these soldiers being interviewed on TV- some of them say the
stupidest things. its no wonder they are so easily fooled by the media.

if all western people refused to join the military anymore, what do u think
the Zionist banking cartel could do about it?

just imagine: in the history of the USA, there's NOT ONE war where we can honestly say the US was justified in getting involved & the Zionist banking cartel had nothing to do with it.


Al Thompson said (November 10, 2014):

Being a veteran should not be a thing of honor; but of dishonor. I have followed many wars in my lifetime and they all were about something other than what everyone thought. Young men tend to believe the older men, and these old men deliberately mislead these men to the horrible experience of war. To apply war for a political solution is simply conquest and confiscation over another group of people. Being in any military, is like being in a street gang with a license to kill whoever they choose. Their uniforms act like a mask and they give the wearer the feeling of authority when he has none. Authority comes from goodness and natural law; not from any political philosophy.

If the young men refused to join the military, then the psycho political leaders would have no one to use as cannon fodder for their insane agenda. It would be better to have no government at all then to have the "leadership" we have now turning everyone's world upside down. If the old men want a war; let them fight each other.
It is a complete disaster to take young men from their families and then make murderers out of them.

Larry said (November 10, 2014):

Henry, you state:

"If honoring veterans means perpetuating a cycle of endless war, we must stop."

Unfortunately, it will never happen because of human vanity as the Protocols show how to exploit so well.

I have a 88 year-old friend who is a WWII veteran and former 32nd degree Mason. He knows as much about the NWO as you do and quit the Masons because he regards them as corrupt but he considers it an honor when his community buses him and other veterans to Washington for recognition.

My brother-in-law is a former Air Force pilot who bemoans "them Iraqi insurgents" but I suspect if he had been born in Iraq, he would consider himself a freedom fighter.

When soldiers say they are fighting "for their buddies" not for their country, it's because they've seen a lot of John Wayne movies and it's the macho thing to do.


DB said (November 12, 2013):

Here is a very important video. It shows why the Vets and Cops should really RE-THINK everything. They are being duped, used and HEAVILY MOCKED by the PTB that they serve. And they should not be angry at the messenger! But at those who DECEIVE THEM,MOCK THEM ,USE THEM, SACRIFICE THEM for PROFIT GAIN. Time for a real de-briefing!

The video can be found at youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3z2chw_bR50#t=0

Or here, with a wealth of other videos, podcasts and other insightful resources:
http://www.whatonearthishappening.com/videos

Certainly a lot of civilians have already re-thought Vets day.
Some of us call it glorified pawn/murderers day. Or other similar expressions.

Past time to wake up. ALL WARS SERVE ONLY THE GREEDY PTB. All war is ritual satanic sacrifice. War is murder. There is no honor in murdering. I do not call murderers 'heroes". And that old worn out excuse "Well, I was just taking orders." Does not hold water. I doubt it will hold water come judgement day either. Atrocity is NOT glorified!


Derek said (November 11, 2013):

This was the most prominent shot from an advert for Remembrance Day aired repeatedly on CBC and CTV the last week. It's a long slow-motion shot of a black soldier next to a white soldier. I'm no bigot. However, can you imagine the dedication and effort it required to scour the archives for this shot?


Bill said (November 11, 2013):

I have a deep respect for those who are serving and for those who have served our country in the military. I am for a strong military to defend our country. But, I am against using the military to transfer wealth into the pockets of our wealthiest families and to increase worldwide market share for their corporations.

The quote below from the article uses the word "bankers". I prefer Lundberg's "super-rich" because the wealth that "influences" our government to declare unconstitutional wars and that swells in value as a result of these unnecessary conflicts belongs to our richest families. They own major equity in all of our largest corporations, including the largest banks. Quite often, J.P. Morgan is described as a Rothschild "front" in the literature.

Today, we should honor the military but condemn unconstitutional war.


Victoria said (November 11, 2013):

Despite having had a father who fought the Japanese in Burma in WWII, I haven't bought a poppy for some years now for the same reasons that you and others of your readers, list.

Like many of you, I've awakened to the fact that most of the conscripts were uninformed and, therefore, gullible, and being young, probably looking for adventure. I would contend that in many ways it was easier to do what was expected of one than to stand out from the crowd as a conscientious objector and face the scorn, derision and hatred of one's nearest and dearest. Even now, moral courage is in short supply.


Dick P said (November 10, 2013):

You're absolutely correct Henry.

I'm from the US and served 2 tours IN VietNam. I was sent over and arrived 30 days after the fake/false flag of the "Gulf of Tonkin" incident. I talked to the guys on the Turner Joy and the Maddox. Thay didn't know of any attack on the day given by Johnson.

What they were doing in the days before was committing acts of war against North VietNam by participating with South VietNam in commando raids. I was awakened and sought facts after the talks and 2 tours. I'm still looking at historical events with an eye for the truth, not political fantasy sold for public consumption.
I'm not proud of my participation and label my self a loser. They did teach me to not be as gullible and search out the truth. General Butler was/is correct. Henry Makow is correct.
Thank YOU for publishing the politically incorrect, factual truth of how it really is and how it got that way.

When did "Armistice Day" become "Veteran's Day"? Doesn't matter. It's in your face celebration of ignorance, stupidity, idiocy and how Bernays style propaganda is still being used against the "useless eaters" and the "useful idiots".


Michael said (November 10, 2013):

dispute what Ken Adachi says [below]. I am a veteran. My draft number was 38. Prior to going in I actively protested the Viet Nam War. In fact I watched as the police opened fire on us, killing one. When I was in I never for one minute thought that I was defending my country. We knew all about the Military Industrial Complex. People should listen to some of the protest songs from back then. They are just as applicable now. Mick

Jim said (November 12, 2012):

Just read the InfoWars article you posted regarding that one-third of Americans are willing to undergo a body cavity search in order to fly.

I am a corrections officer at a state prison. Been doing it for 24 years and not once that I can remember when an inmate had to undergo a body cavity search unless they were suspected of "packing." Even then the inmate is taken to the local hospital and a doctor performs the search and only after an x-ray is taken.

It's shocking to me that 'free', unincarcerated citizens would be so willing to allow this.


Dan A said (November 12, 2012):

I was a medic with the Navy and Marine Corps. from 1984 to 1988. And I enjoyed my adventure then. However, knowing what I know now about my country, I'm not sure I would of served in the armed forces then. But that is the great thing about being young- you are blissfully ignorant. My love for medicine developed then, and I remained in that field for over 20 years.

Smedley Butler has a base named after him in Okinawa, Japan. I was stationed there for a year. Most did not know about that General, who were stationed with me there.

I believe the suicides that are occuring with this war now are due to a combination of the psychotropic drugs the troops are taking over there, combined with their realization of the nature of the war they are involved in over there now.


D said (November 12, 2012):

My grandfather was Warrant Officer stationed at Ft Laramie, Wyoming, during the the 1st World War. He educated me that every American war began with a fake pretext (now called "false flag op"). He told me fighting in wars is for suckers. He told me the 20th century was one long World War that started in 19th century. All wars now are part of ONE WAR bring the world under control of World Government.

Just like in Orwell's 1984, that's what modern wars are about. In Goldstein's Book, O'Brien reveals to Winston that war isn't a horizontal affair against opposing people's, but is the war of the controllers against the people


Tony B said (November 12, 2012):

It's not the banks that need to be nationalized, it's the money. Under right order no government would be in the banking business and no bank would be in the money creation business. The two must be kept separate for an honest economy to exist.

The U.S. media now calls every last soldier killed a hero. In past wars that was an earned honor. Yet, in a sense, each of those 400 grunts shot in the back by Israeli snippers, with the planned assumption that it was done by "them Iraqi rag heads" is a hero to me.

Unfortunately, there is too high a percentage of American soldiers who surpass the "mercenary" label but fit more exactly that of Myrmidon. Their concept seems to be as Talmudic as the "Illumined ones" in that they consider only English speakers people - and not all of them. Some appear to glory in what amounts basically to mass murder of innocent people not of their own ethnic group.

For the more considerate soldiers, these enforced inhuman acts are the real cause of record numbers of suicides which are routinely blamed on too long a stint "on the front lines" which don't even exist in these phony wars.

But the more true set of Myrmidons are the MSM never mentioned "secret army" of well paid "contractors," the very large contingent of sadistic scum who take their mayhem from country to country doing the banker's knee capping and who are the present so-called "civil war" army trying to destabilize Syria after recently destroying Libya for the bankers. For them the U.S. needs a new "day of infamy" observance, together with some serious consideration of war crimes trials and general atonement.


R said (November 12, 2012):

It's encouraging to see that there are others that see this menagerie of tears for what it really is... the glorification of war and conflict, inspiring millions of impressionable young minds to follow their predecessors into an elitist-contrived meat grinder designed to make them (the rich) even more rich than they already are. I, too, wore a uniform, when it wasn't so cool to be a soldier. Now, I wish that I had never donned the costume of an elitist's dupe at all.

Of course, it will always be this way. "Patriotism", as it is understood by the masses, is all-pervasive and intoxicating.

One would think that with the exhaustive and revealing coverage the modern media gives war, it would inspire a few youngsters to actually reconsider the glamorous notions that they have about war. Too many find out after it's too late what war really is - death, maiming, misery unbounded. And, they also find out exactly what value their own government places upon them when afterward they are shunned by the system when they need it the most!

Doing it for their buddies isn't sound thinking. If my buddy is determined to jump off a bridge, I'm certainly not game to follow! So, there has to be other motives. You often see the caliber of individual employed in war showing flagrant disregard for the rights of non-combatants and civilians and their property.

The 'glamor' of war often appeals to a juvenile and/or psychopathic bent. It gives them a license to put their basest and darkest inclinations to test. I happen to know that the vast majority of crimes against humanity never see the light of public scrutiny. The waste of resources, human and material, are incalculable.

I don't observe remembrance services in any outward way... but, I do recognize what all of this has cost humanity. Apparently, 'remembering' hasn't stilled the hand of war or warmongers, so it seems pointless to continue with a custom that ostensibly promotes peace. The reality is something quite different.


Glenn said (November 11, 2012):

If central bankers start all the wars,
are veterans heroes, or mercenaries & dupes?

They are all 3. But mostly dupes. So are the rest of their countrymen.

I'm a former Canadian Paratrooper who served in Mike Company, 3rd Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment. We were the first Canadian combat unit to be sent to Bosnia as UN ' peace keeper's '.

Myself, I was no hero, no mercenary, but I was a dupe. I was a 22 year old kid at the time. Didn't have a clue.

I'm not celebrating Remembrance day. Why should I ?


Michael said (November 11, 2012):

Hi Henry, thank you for your article on Remembrance Day.

I urge you to write a book about the true history of World War II, or even to reprint your previous articles in book form.

I do believe that most of the soldiers are heroes even if they were duped.

I notice that Remembrance Day is full of esoteric symbols:

The cenotaph is just an obelisk, a phallic Shaft of Baal for sex worship.

The cenotaph in front of Old City Hall in Toronto has a wreath penetrated by a wheat sheaf or a laurel leaf. Yes, it’s another sex worship symbol from the illuminati, similar to the Cross and the Crown.

Granite, particularly black granite, is a symbol of lucifer. This explains why it is frequently found at War Memorials, including the front lawn of Queens Park in Toronto.

The 11 numerology of November 11th at 11 a.m. (11/11/11) is a symbol for a world changing destructive event. A triple number has maximum potency in the occult.

The poppy is symbolic of opiates, a path to the Astral Plane (the Demonic Realm). The poppy also symbolizes Morpheus, the pagan god of Sleep. The war in Afghanistan is all about poppies.

“In Flanders Fields”, the poem that began the war memorial poppy symbol, was written by Guelph, Ontario fraternity member John McCrae and literally pulled out of the garbage to be printed in the newspaper for the first time.

Remembrance Day is not a memorial day for the illuminati. For them it is a celebration of lucifer, death worship, and their "Great Work" toward a New World Order.

Since most soldiers were Christian, this lucifer worship is inappropriate, to put it mildly. I wish the veterans knew this.


V said (November 13, 2011):

On Thursday I was thinking to myself that Friday is Remembrance Day and at school (the one I work at cleaning)
there is going to be a Remembrance Day assembly for the kids. The local news station had live coverage of the
Remembrance Day ceremonies in Ottawa and people everywhere were wearing poppies. The kids at school
decorated the gym with pictures of crosses, poppies, soldiers.

I don't want to sound like (pardon my French) an asshole but I was thinking, "what a bunch of propaganda bulldozer shit."
Our Canadian soldiers didn't die in WWI, WWII and recently in Afghanistan for our freedom. Our Canadian soldiers are dying
in Afghanistan to protects England's DOPE INC. (the opium fields) from the competitors. World War II was created to
neutralize Germany from being a independent European power, usher in the United Nations and to populate Zion (Israel).
World War I was created to dis-crown the crowns of Europe, get rid of the Ottoman empire so that the British could
occupy Palestine (Israel) and usher in the League of Nations and bring Germany to it's knees with round two coming up
in WWII.

I sincerely hope that our soldiers in death know who their "real" enemy is and that they were not fighting for freedom, or
in the case of WWI and WWII for "god, country and Queen." May their souls have vengeance in the fourth dimension
and the psychopathic oligarchy families who start the wars and misery an everlasting life with Satan, the prince of this world
upon their deaths.

Here is a picture I took on the Labour Day weekend this year at an Anglican cemetery in Niagara-on-the-Lake of grave
stones of poor Canadian soldiers that died recently, probably in Afghanistan.

Your right Henry. We should NOT honor them as heroes who died for our freedoms but expose the lies our government,
media is telling us about reality, history and maybe (probably not) our next generation of Canadians will not be fighting
nameless wars for psychopathic oligarchy families who regard us as Goyim (cattle), unwashed masses and useless eaters.


Mark said (November 12, 2011):

The masses love war and all its drama and economic benefits.

As in the words of our "Globalist Friend" in his letter from the New World Order to the citizens of the world, If you cannot "eat of the crumbs off of our table", ..........."you feel deprived."

And in the words of Lenin, "Society could go in a thousand different directions, but they (the masses) must never be allowed to know this. They must be made to believe that the system they were born in to, is the only one that could possibly ever exist."

Finally, in the words of Dr. Alan Watt, "It is not so much rule by the mob, but the mob in league with its elite controllers, against the sentient individual."

So, when finally put together, these three profound statements say in effect, "There can be no alternative or escape from this diabolically beautiful system of ours, causing your miserable state-of-affairs which we have studiously taught you to love and defend to the death with your vary lives, against any would be saviour who would dare to point the way towards salvation from it."


Michael said (November 12, 2011):

Thanks for this great article on "Veteran's Day". Good piece and needed. You said it well, the situation. I had a local guardsmen interested in visiting the "Military Officers for 9/11
Truth" website, till I mentioned a few quotes and facts. His demeanor changed and he asked, "So, what are you saying? We did this to ourselves?". I did not say it, I responded, look at what these officers are saying..You're in the Army check out what General Stubblebine says about the Pentagon..." It went
downhill from there, he totally shut the door. Dupes..its the truth. Brave, hardworking, dupes.

-- Thanks Michael

Many would rather remain in the dark than admit they are being lied to in the most egregious way.

Joyce said (November 11, 2011):

Thank you for the article and for the ones who replied. My husband had THREE cancers caused by agent orange fighting in Viet Nam and also wading through it during his munitions training on bases such as Elgin Air Force Base in Florida..

We married in 1988, he was diagnosed with the first cancer, Cloracne, in 1990. The second, a silent killer, renal cell sarcoma was diagnosed the next winter just before the 'holidays'. He was immediately operated on and his kidney went to John Hopkins where he was diagnosed with Non Hodgekins Lymphoma... two years later a cancer center opened up and against all my wishes he chose to kill himself with chemo.

He died in 1999 ... but his brain died in 1995. I fought the VA for DIC benefits and was denied for multiple reasons until they ran out of excuses and granted me DIC from 2007. I fought for the approval of my first application, and last year was heard by a Washington D.C. Judge who approved my claim with the reason of CLEAR AND UNMISTAKABLE ERROR. The reason I fought was because too many people acquiesce to the govt even though they have just cause to win. They maim and kill the best of the land, but won't approve justifiable claims..

War never brought peace, and even God Almighty threw the war mongers out of heaven above. That is why they love wars.. they have had no oversight.... but we KNOW they will and it will come in the very near future.

Thank you for letting me vent.

Cliff Shack said (November 11, 2011):

There is an amazing irony to the crack in the Liberty Bell. Somebody up there is vainly trying to tell us that the relished and well-sung concept of "Liberty" is but a sham. The same crack alludes to the "noble" lady who held her torch as she welcomed unsuspecting greenhorns as they neared the devils of Wall Street.

Alas, the time for warnings are over. It is as though we are all plodding and mooing through one of Temple Grandin's elaborate slaughter house ramps.

The lucky steer like us have learned just who had built the slaughter house. We also know who financed it and the names of the butchers awaiting us at the end of the ramp.

Yep, we are the "lucky" ones. Whoop-dee-doo. We have momentarily foiled the grand scheme of those controlling the flow of sheeple through the system. In a system based upon the idea that ignorance is bliss, we refuse to go blissfully! But...is that wise?


Hans said (November 11, 2011):

f drafted, soldiers are victims. If "serving" voluntarily, they are prostitutes or dupes. Either way, you can not be a soldier accepting and obeying orders from a satanic structure, and all western states are, and be a Christian. You can not serve two masters.

Dr. H Kissinger, famous war-criminal, Peace-Nobel Price winner and Illuminati admin, expressed it best:

"Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy." Henry Kissinger, quoted by Bob Woodward in The Final Days, 1976

Can anyone be an "honoured veteran" and a "dumb animal" at the same time? Once again: one truth for the "Elite", and one for you "dumb stupid animals"! Double-minds in war-action.


Tom said (November 11, 2011):

Great piece on rethinking Veterans Day!

One thing that I have been doing for the last few years is, every time I encounter a veteran standing outside a store entrance collecting money for veterans on Veterans Day, I ask the vet what he thinks about the attack on the USS Liberty. The fact that nearly ALL of the vets, even the Navy Vets, have never even heard of the Liberty incident is not surprising but this allows me the opportunity to inform and educate.


Doug said (November 11, 2011):

This is a very difficult and interesting question that you raise.

My position on wearing the poppy is that it is support for war and that these people that got shot, burned to death, crippled for life or blown up are (mostly) dead and we must respect the living and not perpetuate the memory of war to preserve the culture of war. If we stopped remembering what it was, the idea of doing it would seem insane and anyone that suggested it would likely be locked up immediately. I read that somewhere and I don't recall where and its the most sensible view IMO.


Dan said (November 11, 2011):

refer below to Norman Dodd's recollections of information his staff obtained from the private archive of the Carnegie Foundation in 1954, while he was the research director of the Congressional Special Committee to Investigate Tax-exempt Foundations, sometimes referred to as the Reece Committee. That Committee was shut down before any of their information could be entered into the Congressional Record.

In the minutes one of the boards early meetings in 1908 the order of business was to determine a means to change American society to conform to corporate interests. The question discussed was, “Is there any means known more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an entire people?” The agreed war was the most effective means to speed up "progress".
When the motive of war is to change society permanently, we can see the motive for prolonging wars for years that could have been resolved quickly, or easily avoided to begin with. The Carnegie minutes not only recorded a 1909 meeting planning how to get American involved in a war, the archive contained a copy of a telegram to President Woodrow Wilson instructing him not to end the war too quickly.

Have you noticed the definitions of 'patriotism' have been changing drastically? The US government decided to phase out the nationalist, patriotic identity of the military many years ago. It the same for all NATO members. They are being converted from defender of their nation to enforcer of the new world order. It is the ultimate betrayal of every soldier that died for his country during the last 200 years.

The "battle" of Somme went like this: soldiers jump out of a trench, run toward machine gun fire and are killed. Then soldiers from the other side jump out of the trench, run toward machine gun fire and are killed. Repeat.

Let's not pretend this is anything that could be called "battle". This isn't courage. It isn't even stupidity. It could best be described as some kind of mass insanity.

It took less than 5 months to kill 1.2 million men in this way, and the allies managed to gain less than 10 kilometers of occupied ter


Gordon said (November 10, 2011):

My old man was with the Royal Canadian Regiment, in Italy. then with the Provost Corp in Japan during the Korean 'conflict'. He was in the thick some of the fiercest fighting the Canadians ever encountered, at Ortona. He told me about going out on the battlefields the day after, picking up bodies of German soldiers with belt buckles inscribed "Gott mit Uns"

Around 1972, he was asked to re-enlist and serve with the peace-keeping force in Eygpt. He was tempted at being promoted to Major, then after 2 years, being pensioned-off at full modern rate. I came into his shop one day to find him musing about what had gone on in the war ... he said "now I wonder what that was all about"

Same with my mother, a daughter of the RCR, who was a nursing sister in the Cdn Army, looking after wounded broken men from both sides, in Allied hospitals. They'd seen it first-hand close-up, as the best and brightest of their generation were sacrificed on the altar of the Roman god, Mars. For what?

I've never been to war, but I served my country. I couldn't agree more. This vid sums it up.

Thank you once again for having the courage to speak the truth.
